When Binyamin Netanyahu Said Hitler Did Not Initiate the Holocaust

بِسۡمِ ٱللهِ ٱلرَّحۡمَـٰنِ ٱلرَّحِيمِ

Binyamin Netanyahu said, in a speech on the 20th October, 2015, to the Zionist Congress that, “Hitler did not want to exterminate the Jews at the time; he wanted to expel the Jews.”  The prime minister said that the mufti, Haj Amin al-Husseini, had protested to Hitler that “they will all come here,” referring to Palestine.

“‘So, what should I do with them?’” Netanyahu quoted Hitler as asking Mr. Husseini.

“He said, ‘Burn them.’”

Prof. Meir Litvak, a historian at Tel Aviv University, called the speech “a lie” and “a disgrace.”

Prof. Moshe Zimmermann, a specialist of German history at Hebrew University, said, “With this, Netanyahu joins a long line of people that we would call Holocaust deniers.”

Even Moshe Yaalon, the defense minister and a senior member of Netanyahu’s Likud Party, said in a radio interview that “history is actually very, very clear.”  “Hitler initiated it,” he said. “Haj Amin al-Husseini joined him.”
