Following are excerpts from an interview with Egyptian researcher Muhammad Galaa Idris, which aired on Al-Rahma TV on September 7, 2012.
Muhammad Galaa Idris: They now say that the worse genocide in history was committed by Nazism and Hitler – the Holocaust. In my view, Hitler was one of the most fanatical believers in the Torah.
To those who believe that [the Torah] is a divine book, I say: If it is indeed a divine book, revealed by God, why do you blame Hitler for what he did to the Jews? The genocides that you talk about, which were mentioned in the Torah, were all committed by order of God. If they were by order of God, how can I blame Hitler? Hitler was a righteous believer, according to the writings of the Old Testament.
