Iraqi Islamic scholar Fares Al-Azawi said in an October 12, 2022 show on Al-Aqsa TV (Hamas-Gaza) that the Zionists had colluded with the Nazis, that it is a "myth" that six million Jews were killed in the Holocaust, and that the Nuremberg Trials had been a sham and part of a Zionist scheme to establish a Jewish state in Palestine. He also cited French Holocaust denier Roger Garaudy and said that former Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir had colluded with the Nazis in 1941.
Fares Al-Azawi: "One of the modern myths is the myth of Zionism being against Nazism and Fascism. [The Jews] pretended that there was enmity between them and Nazism and Fascism and on this basis, they wanted to have a 'national home.'
"The second myth is that the Nuremberg Trials were just. In these trials, no evidence whatsoever was presented. All they wanted was to create a Zionist enterprise based on these trials. The third myth is the myth of the six million."
Interviewer: "What's that about?"
Al-Azawi: "That the Nazis killed six million Jews in the Holocaust. This was proven to be a lie by [Roger] Garaudy.
"Furthermore, researchers proved that Yitzhak Shamir – who was the prime minister of the [Israeli] entity at some point – had called for an alliance with the Nazis against Britain in 1941, during WWII. Garaudy said that the relationship with the Nazis was twofold: on the one hand, with the Zionists, and on the other hand, with the Jews who called for assimilation in European and other societies. Therefore, the massacres were carried out against those who called for assimilation, whereas Jews who advocated Zionism received moral and financial support."
