Iranian Sheikh Sadiq Akhvan: Massacre of Jewish Banu Qurayza Tribe Is a Holocaust-Like Fabrication by the Jews

Iranian Sheikh Sadiq Akhvan said that no story has led Islamic scholars and historians into a trap laid by the Jews as much as the story of the massacre of the Jewish tribe of Banu Qurayza in Medina, which he said is "another Holocaust-like lie." He said that the Jews are infamous for fabricating myths. Sheikh Akhvan added that the Jews should have established Israel in Germany or Britain instead of Palestine. His remarks aired on Al-Kawthar TV (Iran) on November 17, 2018.

Following are excerpts:

 

Sheikh Sadiq Akhvan: No story has led scholars of Islam, of hadith, or of history into a trap laid by the Jews as much as the lie about the Banu Qurayza [massacre] has. My dear sisters and brothers, you all know what the Jews are like. I am not addressing only the Muslims. Even the Christians and others know that the Jews are infamous worldwide for inventing myths and distorting facts. This lie was not the first in their history, nor was it the last.

You have all seen that under the pretext of the great Holocaust that took place during WWII, the Jews came and occupied Palestine. They even gained international legitimacy. Why? Becausethey said: "We are miserable. Three million of us, more or less, were burned in Hitler's furnaces." Go to Germany or to Britain and establish your Israel there. How is this the fault of the Arabs and the Muslims? Palestine is 100% an Arab and Islamic land. We see that the lie about the Banu Qurayza [massacre], which dates back to the advent of Islam, is another Holocaust-like lie.
