On the Houthi affiliated Al-Masirah TV, TV host Hamid Rizq referred to the visit to Auschwitz of a delegation of the Muslim World League, led by the Saudi Sec.-Gen.of the League, Muhammad Al-Issa. Rizk said that delegation’s visit to “the camps of the so-called Holocaust” is “another venomous strike [Saudi Arabia has dealt] to the body of the Arab and Islamic nation.” Rizk stated that the Saudi regime has gone beyond their “clandestine participation in schemes” against the Arab causes and it is now participating in public measures which constitute “harsh provocation of the sentiments of the Arabs and Muslims.” Rizk claimed that the graves of Holocaust victims and museums of the Holocaust are a lie. He insisted that “many historians have proven that this genocide was not true.” The visit took place in commemoration of the 75th anniversary of the camp’s liberation and the statements were aired on January 25, 2020.

Hamid Rizq: At a time when the Zionist Jews commemorate the false Holocaust, in international forums and with events across the world, Saudi Arabia dealt another venomous strike to the body of the Arab and Islamic nation. Mohammad bin Salman sent the Secretary-General of the so-called Muslim World League to the visit the camps of the false Holocaust, in which the Jews are said to have suffered at the hands of the Nazis during World War II.

[…]

It is said that millions of them were victims of World War II, and this is not accurate. Many races and peoples were victims of the Nazi Holocaust, not just the Jews. The Jews constituted a small percentage of [the victims].

[…]

The Saudi regime has gone beyond its clandestine participation in the schemes against the Arab causes and against Islam and the Muslims. It is now making public moves which constitute harsh provocation of the sentiments of the Arabs and the Muslims all over the world.

[…]

They went on a visit to a place that Israel considers to be sacred – the graves of the Jews. These graves or museums are a lie. Many historians have proven that this genocide was not true.

[…]

Because they work diligently for the sake of their cause, the Zionists have managed to turn this myth into a sacred truth. Whoever doubts it, is persecuted and prosecuted.
