Hamas TV: The Holocaust Was Part of a Zionist Plan to Get Rid of the Jewish Elderly and Handicapped

Following are excerpts from a Hamas TV report titled, "Holocaust in Palestine," which aired on Al-Aqsa TV on April 22, 2008.

Reporter: "The elderly and the handicapped constitute a heavy burden on the state. What we want is young working hands that will serve the state." This is what Ben-Gurion, the leader of the terrorists, said, when he laid the foundations for the dirty game, in which he saw fit to play the role of the victim, in order to arouse people's empathy and compassion. Thus, the minds of Jews satans hatched a despicable idea, enabling them to get rid of the burden posed by the elderly and the handicapped, using criminal and twisted methods, while an accusing finger is directed towards the Nazis or others. Thus, the Jews were presented as persecuted, in an attempt to gain international empathy, even though they were the first to invent and renew methods of persecution.

Amin Dabour, head of the Rua Research Center: With regard to the Israeli holocaust, it was a complete farce, part of a show orchestrated by Ben-Gurion, the head of the Zionist political movement, in order to drag the Jews of the world to Palestine, and to complete the Zionist enterprise in the region, which could only be realized through immigration. He focused on young people, who were energetic and capable, ignoring all the handicapped, the elderly, and people with special needs. Hence, they were the ones who paid the price – if the [Holocaust] was substantiated historically at all – so there would be a Holocaust, and Israel could benefit by arousing the empathy of the world – whether countries, institutions, or individuals.

Reporter: Some believe that the crocodile tears shed by the leaders of the Zionist gangs over the victims of what came to be known as "the Holocaust" managed to influence the international community, which began to support them, and promised to establish a national homeland for them. However, many people do not realize that the interests of the West coincided with the interests of the Zionist leaders. The idea of a national homeland was of service to the European peoples, which were eager to get rid of the Jewish communities, in order to save their countries' resources and economies, on the one hand, and to protect their interests in the Arab East, on the other hand. As for the alleged sufferings of the Jews, they were nothing but a media façade and a feeble pretext. No one has ever taken upon himself to demand even a shred of evidence to prove the false claims that they keep raising. On the contrary, a wall of fire has been erected around these claims, and no one is allowed to cast doubt on them, or else he is considered a Nazi, a Fascist, and an anti-Semite.
