CBNNews.com - GAZA STRIP - A Hamas documentary teaches that the Jews planned the Nazi Holocaust to dispense of "disabled and handicapped" Jews.
Aired on an "educational program" on Hamas' al-Aksa satellite television network last week, the documentary claimed that the Jews' Zionist plot had two main goals:
- To send weakened Jews to the death camps so they wouldn't burden the future State of Israel
- To make it appear that Jews "seem persecuted" to "benefit from international sympathy"
In the documentary, Amin Dabur, the film's narrator and head of the Palestinian Center for Strategic Research, called the "Israeli" Holocaust a "joke" and "part of the perfect show that [Israel's first prime minister, David] Ben Gurion put on."
According to Dabur, Ben Gurion believed that "disabled and handicapped Jews are a burden to the [future] state so the "Satanic Jews thought up an evil plot to be rid of the burden of disabled and handicapped in twisted, criminal ways."
"This is official Hamas TV," said Palestinian Media Watch (PMW) director Itamar Marcus. "It's owned and totally controlled by the Hamas leadership in Gaza, and it goes out by satellite to the whole Arab-speaking world," he said.
The documentary compared the genocide of Jews in the Holocaust to the deaths of Palestinians at the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps in Lebanon, blaming Israel for a "Palestinian holocaust."
A transcript of the documentary may be seen on the Palestinian Media Watch Web site.
