In yet another long and disoriented rant, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Monday took his anti-Semitic sentiment to a new level.
Abbas told a Palestinian National Council session that the Jewish people – not anti-Semitism or the Nazis – caused the Holocaust through their “social behavior,” the Times of Israel reported.
According to Abbas, the mass genocide of more than 6 million Jews was a result of the Jews “social behavior, [charging] interest, and financial matters.”
Abbas also claimed that Israel is a European colonial project, that European Jews have “no historical ties” to Israel, and that “those who sought a Jewish state weren’t Jews.”
Denying Jewish identity and Jewish rights to any part of Israel are other forms of anti-Semitism that Abbas frequently embraces.
He also repeated his stubborn rejection of any peace plan proposal led by the Trump administration, even before it has been formally presented.
