PFLP-GC Representative in Lebanon Anwar Raja Denies the Holocaust and States: Hitler Was No Worse Than the Current U.S. Administration

Following are excerpts from an interview with PFLP-GC representative in Lebanon Anwar Raja, which aired on Al-Alam TV on May 15, 2009.

Anwar Raja: Let’s be realistic – the Jews have managed to falsify history, using the shameless mentality that views history according to one's interests. The Jews have managed to exert pressure on the world, so that history would be rewritten as they desire. They extorted the Pope during his recent visit to Palestine, so he would mention the figure of 6 million Palestinians... Jews in the Holocaust. I do not know who stood at the gates of the crematoria and counted. I don't know who came up with this figure. All the facts point to inflation, falsification, and exaggeration.

Interviewer: The French thinker Robert Faurisson of the school of [historical] revisionism said: "I calculated that the number of Jews in Europe at the time was 150,000, so where did the figure of six million come from?"

[...]

Anwar Raja: In my opinion, if Hitler had won – and incidentally, Hitler was no worse than the current U.S. administration... If Hitler had won, we would be reading a different version of history, sir. Our history was written by the victors of World War II, and they found they had a common interest with the Jews - the consolidation of the Zionist entity in Palestine.

[...]

We say: the Right of Return is sacred. It must be fulfilled, and the Zionist entity must be wiped out. Palestine will be restored to its people – from the [Mediterranean] Sea to the [Jordan] River. If Europe – especially Britain and America – wants to avoid repercussions and consequences, it should rectify the historical mistake it made with regard to an entire people.
