PA daily article: World Zionism exaggerated the story of the Holocaust

Headline: "That which needs to be said"
     "That which needs to be said – under that heading, German writer Günter Grass wrote a poem that raised a storm, the responses to which have not yet died down. Perhaps the most important thing that was said was related to the preparations that Israel is making to attack the Iranian nuclear reactor. The writer views this as a threat to world peace, and therefore [believes that] the circle of silence must be broken, and that which needs to be said, must be said. As regards Palestine, he said: 'Israel must withdraw not only from Hebron and from Beit-El, but also from Haifa, Tel Aviv, and Nazareth.' [PMW has been unable to find any reference to the alleged statement by Gunter Grass that Israel should withdraw from Tel Aviv and other Israeli cities.] The moment Grass published his poem, at the beginning of the month, world Zionism enlisted its propaganda machine to attack him… He was accused, as usual, of Antisemitism, and mention was made of his youth, when he was a co-pilot in the Second World War.
… For a long time, world Zionism has succeeded in blocking any German opinion, whether on the official level or on the popular level, which might cause slight harm to Israel. It is aided in this by its exaggeration of the story of the Holocaust, which it has transformed into a complex by means of which it silences the Germans… While the results of the public opinion polls in the European Union, concerning the manner in which the Europeans view Israel, cause it [Israel] concern, it goes without saying that they generate satisfaction amongst Palestinians in particular, and Arabs in general… Perhaps we should now re-design the Palestinian policy concerning ways of exploiting the changes within European society – which is coming very close to our legitimate rights – within the framework of an integrative strategy on the official and popular level, as we utilize the influential presence of Palestinian and Arab communities, which are active in this direction, within European societies. Thus we will be able to obtain from them much of what needs to be said, and work together with them in order to transform that which needs to be said into that which needs to be done."
