Abbas and Holocaust Commemoration – Jonathan Tobin
(dailyalert.org, Apr. 28, 2014
If the world thinks Abbas’ nice words about the Holocaust are more important than his pact with Hamas or even his personal embrace of the terrorist murderers who shed Jewish blood, then perhaps it is time to start worrying about a trend that appears to elevate Holocaust commemoration over and above any concern for Jews currently alive.
Courtesies about the events of the 1940s do not outweigh efforts to deny legitimacy to Jewish rights, let alone justify the embrace of those who shed Jewish blood in our own time. (Commentary)
