Jordanian TV Host Omar Ayasra: The Holocaust Is a Story Used by Israel to Extort the West, Get Sympathy; Visiting Auschwitz Helps Israel Survive

Jordanian TV host Omar Ayasra said in a January 27, 2020 show on Yarmouk TV (Jordan) that the story of the Holocaust is not the story about massacres, crimes against humanity, and antisemitism that people are told it is. He claimed that the Holocaust is a story used politically by Israel to promote itself and to extort the West by getting sympathy and support. He criticized the Secretary-General of the Muslim World League for visiting Auschwitz and praying there and he said that doing this is assisting the survival of the State of Israel.

 

Omar Ayasra: "The Holocaust is not a story about a massacre, about [crimes against] humanity, or about everything that is being propagated. [It's not about] antisemitism. It is one of the investments used by this plundering entity in order to promote itself, turn itself into the victim, earn the sympathy and support of the West, extort the West, remind the Westerners of their history... They use [the Holocaust] politically. When the Secretary-General of the Muslim World League, who represents me and the entire Muslim world, goes and prays [in Auschwitz], it is as if you add your name to the list of Zionist desires regarding the story of the establishment of [Israel].

"Today, you go and assist in the project of the Holocaust, which helps, politically, in the survival of Israel."
