Lebanese researcher Dr. Ali Hamie said in a February 12, 2023 show on Al-Alam TV (Iran) that the claims that six million Jews were annihilated are inflated. He said: "Did Hitler even have enough gas to burn six million Jews? He could have thrown them into the sea, why would he have bothered to burn them?" Later in the show, he claimed that the Jews used atheism and Jehovah's Witnesses to destroy religious, moral, and cultural values in Europe. He also claimed that the Jews and the Zionists control people's minds and thoughts as well as the media and that criticizing other religions is acceptable, while criticizing Judaism, Zionism, and The Protocols of the Elders of Zion is forbidden.
Ali Hamie: "The number of Jews all over the world at the time was not more than 15 million, but they are talking about the annihilation of six or seven million people.
"Did Hitler even have enough gas to burn six million people? He could have thrown them into the sea, why would he have bothered to burn them?
"[The Jews] were behind the destruction of the religious moral values in Europe by the means of atheism and Jehovah's Witnesses. Therefore, they supported these ideas and destroyed religious, cultural, and moral values, but it is forbidden to even think about criticizing Judaism.
"You are allowed to criticize Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Confucianism, or whatever, but no one should even think about criticizing Judaism, Zionism, biblical stories in the Quran, The Protocols of the Elders of Zion, or whatever."
Interviewer: "What brought Europe to this state of affairs?"
Hamie: "Controlling minds and thoughts, as well as controlling the media, and also a policy of intimidation: anyone who is no longer useful — dies. This is Christian Zionism."
