Poland: Journalists don't think Palestinian Holocaust denial is newsworthy

A few months ago Abbas made statements to Polish journalists, both implying the Holocaust didn't happen and blaming the Jews for being the new Nazis.  This is quite common logic among antisemites.

At the time I put it aside until I could figure out whether any of the journalists who were present in the meeting thought this is newsworthy.   So far, I haven't found any.   If your'e a Polish journalist who reported about this, you're welcome to point me to your article.

Due to the uproar over Netanyahu's statement blaming Palestinian Nazi-cheering for the Holocaust, I thought it interesting to point out.   Blaming Jews for a new Holocaust is common discourse.   Holocaust denial is becoming common discourse.  Certainly not newsworthy.

Via PMW:
PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas in a speech before a delegation of Polish journalists in Ramallah, referred to Jewish suffering in World War II as a Jewish or Israeli claim that he is willing to respect:

"They say they made sacrifices in World War II - we respect what they say."

He made this statement in the context of libeling Israel, as the second half of his statement accuses Israel of doing to the Palestinians what the Nazis did to the Jews:

"They should not treat us the way they were treated [by the Nazis]. We must not be a victim of the victim. I did not do anything bad to him."  more
