Let's not forget that Abbas is a Holocaust denier who said: "It seems that the interest of the Zionist movement, however, is to inflate this figure [of Holocaust deaths] so that their gains will be greater. This led them to emphasize this figure [six million] in order to gain the solidarity of international public opinion with Zionism. Many scholars have debated the figure of six million and reached stunning conclusions?fixing the number of Jewish victims at only a few hundred thousand."" His dissertation was entitled: "The Secret Connection between the Nazis and the Leaders of the Zionist Movement" Is is any wonder that he now wants to deny the Jewish people Statehood?
