Syrian Foreign Minister Farouq Al-Shar'a: Israeli Targeted Killings Worse Than the "Ovens" of the Holocaust

Following are excerpts from a speech delivered by Syrian Foreign Minister Farouq Al-Shar'a, which was aired on Al-Jazeera TV on December 28, 2005.

Farouq Al-Shar'a: Israel is not capable of establishing "the greater Israel" now. When a young man sacrifices his life, what power can oppose him?

What has happened recently is amazing and astonishing. The US has come to the region with massive forces. It has taken Afghanistan, and entered Iraq, and Israeli Prime Minister Sharon has aligned himself with it. He would kill the Palestinians with missiles, from the air. Then they have complaints if a certain president talks about the Holocaust.

Is this not a Holocaust? Of course it is. It is like the ovens and even worse.
