PA academic: The Holocaust is a lie

Dr. Issam Sissalem, History Professor, Islamic University falsely claims that the fact that Jews were murdered in the Holocaust is a lie. He asserts that the concentration camps of Dachau and Auschwitz were only disinfection sites and adds that the fact that Jews were murdered, persecuted and exterminated is just Jewish propaganda. He also states that the State of Israel is like a cancer in the land. Dr. Issam Sissalem further states that the Jews have always portrayed themselves as victims and even created a "center for Heroism and Holocaust." Instead Sissalem claims that the Palestinian people are the ones who were the victims of a holocaust. Sissalem refers to the internationally respected Yad Vashem center, which is the Jewish people's memorial to the murdered six million Jews in World War II as well as a center for research, education and documentation.

Dr. Issam Sissalem, history lecturer, Islamic University Gaza, Palestinian expert on Jews and Judaism, appearing on PA TV educational program "Pages From Our History":
     "Lies surfaced about Jews being murdered here and there, and the Holocaust. And of course these are all lies and unfounded claims. There was no Dachau, no Auschwitz! [They] were cleansing sites... They began to publicize in their propaganda media that they were persecuted, murdered and exterminated... Committees acted here and there to establish this entity [Israel- Ed.], this foreign entity, implanted as a cancer in our country, where our fathers lived, where we live, and where our children after us will live. They always portrayed themselves as victims, and they made a Center for Heroism and Holocaust. Whose heroism? What Holocaust? It is our nation which is heroic, the holocaust was against our people... We were the victims, but we shall not remain victims forever."
