In his short daily column in the Egyptian government sponsored newspaper Al-Akhbar, entitled "Half a Word," columnist Ahmad Ragab discusses the Holocaust. He writes:
"Thanks to Hitler, of blessed memory, who on behalf of the Palestinians, revenged in advance, against the most vile criminals on the face of the earth. Although we do have a complaint against him for his revenge on them was not enough."
 Al-Akhbar (Egypt), April 18, 2001.
