Why Does the Muslim World Deny the Holocaust?

A conference on Holocaust denial in the Muslim world was held at Bar-Ilan University this week ahead of Holocaust Remembrance Day on Thursday, featuring numerous academics, several journalists, and Itamar Marcus of Palestinian Media Watch.

At the event Arutz Sheva got a chance to speak with Dr. Mordechai Kedar of Bar-Ilan University, a renowned expert of Arabic and the Arab world.

Kedar argued the Arab world denies the Holocaust “because any acknowledging that the Holocaust actually was is in their view legitimizing Israel, and giving Israel (a reason) to live and to exist”…

    No it’s more basic than that. They hate Jews to death. So anything that angers and offends Jews is a good thing to them. That’s why.

    It’s the same Master-faith quranic mind set that makes them believe that muhamed rose from the dead and mounted a flying animal to go up into the clouds top be with allah.
    Ironically , a Toronto Imam keeps bashing Christians for believing that Jesus rose from the dead and when up into the clouds to be with God.
    I guess if the lie is big enough muslim can get sucked right in .
    Jesus should have gotten a flying horse that spoke 5 languages , THEN muslims would believe it.

    There was no holocaust, the 6 million is a myth… in the same breath: it’s a shame Hitler didn’t finish the job. does this make any sense. No, of course not.

      They never make much sense.

        I have seen holocaust deniers contradict themselves, sometimes even in the same sentence, and then get all irate when you point it out.

  • UCSPanther

    “The Holocaust never happened” “Six Million more!”

    Make up your damn minds, you crazed antisemites.

  • Aside from hating Jews, the Holocaust is proof that a genuinely repressed people can move forward and succeed in life.
