Following are excerpts
from an interview with Turkish political analyst Ibrahim Aqbaba, against the backdrop of the screening of the film "Shoah" in Turkey. The interview aired on Al-Alam TV on January 30, 2012:
the title of the Holocaust myth – or the so-called Holocaust – the
Israeli entity occupied Arab and Islamic countries, and plundered the
lands of other countries as well. It has tormented many nations, and
is almost ruling the world by evoking the sentiment of the West, claiming
that a certain injustice was done to it. I'd like to ask about the response
of the Turkish public to the official distribution of this production.
I don't think there is any support among the public for this film.
But as I've said, there are documents that show that the Jews who were
annihilated in Germany were Turkish Jews who immigrated from Iran to
Germany centuries ago. There was a Turkish race that was annihilated
among them. That's why Turks sympathize with [the victims of] this annihilation
in Germany. This I cannot deny.
