The expulsion of the Palestinian people in 1948 is “the crime of the 20th century” not the Holocaust

Fatah Central Committee member Samir Al-Rifai: “The crime of the 20th century – the 20th century in which World War I took place, World War II took place, and many [other] wars took place here and there – but the crime considered the crime of the 20th century is the expulsion of the Palestinian people in 1948. This crime might be the number one crime in this [20th] century. But the Zionist movement is attempting to focus on the topic of the Holocaust and what happened to the Jews in World War II. We don’t want to get into the details, our people has undergone more than this.”

Al-Rifai’s statement is apparently in reference to PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas’ claim that Israel “has committed 50 holocausts.” Abbas said this instead of apologizing for the murder of 11 Israeli athletes by the Palestinian Black September terror group at the Munich Olympics in 1972, which a journalist asked him to do at a joint press conference with German Chancellor Olaf Scholz in Berlin on Aug. 16, 2022.

Al-Rifai is also Fatah Commissioner of Branches Abroad
