Egyptian Islamist Wagdi Ghoneim: The Real Holocaust was When Coalition Forces Captured Last ISIS Stronghold of Al-Baghuz

Turkey-based Egyptian Islamist Wagdi Ghoneim said in a video he uploaded to his YouTube channel on March 28, 2019 that the real holocaust occurred when the SDF and the coalition forces captured that last ISIS stronghold of Al-Baghuz - unlike when the Germans killed "we-don't-know-how-many" Jews.  He said that the American-led coalition were "Crusaders" joined by the "criminals" of the Syrian Democratic Forces and that the coalition treated the people of Al-Baghuz, including women and children, very poorly and attacked them with weapons of all sorts. 

Following are excerpts:


Wagdi Ghoneim: Was it a holocaust [in Al-Baghuz]? Yes, it was indeed a holocaust. This was the real holocaust – not when the Germans killed we-don't-know-how-many Jews. [Al-Baghuz] was the real holocaust.




It was perpetrated by the American-led international coalition forces. They are all Crusaders that hate Islam and the Muslims, and, unfortunately, they are joined by the criminals of the Syrian Democratic Forces.




Al-Baghuz was the last stronghold of the Islamic State. They reached an agreement with [ISIS] there. This was the last pocket of Islamic State control. They promised that [ISIS] could leave safely and turn themselves in – especially since there were women and children there.




So the [coalition] took them to God-knows-where and treated them very, very, very badly. When the people [left in Al-Baghuz] saw this, they decided to stay and see what happens. [The coalition] besieged these people inside an area the size of one square kilometer and attacked them with every type of weapon you can imagine – phosphorus…




Turkey tried to find peaceful solutions. It tried to find peaceful  solutions with America, but Trump refused. He said "No," and annihilated [those people], brothers.
