Israel’s supposed peace partners in the Palestinian Authority have been promoting Hitler again. The PA official newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jedidah has run an op-ed suggesting that Nazism was an honorable ideology that would greatly have benefitted the planet had it prevailed in World War II. “Had Hitler won, Nazism would be an honor that people would be competing to belong to, and not a disgrace punishable by law,” wrote Hassan Ouda Abu Zaher, just before President Obama is set to visit the region. “Churchill and Roosevelt were alcoholics … Hitler hated alcohol … These facts have been turned upside down as well, and Satan has been dressed with angels’ wings …”
The op-ed also stated that al-Qaeda did not commit the terrorist attacks of 9/11. Instead, it blamed the Freemasons, as well – of course – the Zionists.
Despite this latest evidence of Palestinian unwillingness to deal with the reality of Jewish presence in the Middle East, President Obama is widely expected to pressure Israel for concessions in pursuit of yet another abortive peace process.
