“Such a canard cannot go unchallenged,” declared Rabbis Marvin Hier and Abraham Cooper, Dean and Founder and Associate Dean and Director of Global Social Action for the Simon Wiesenthal Center, a leading Jewish Human Rights NGO.

“There is no comparing the monstrous genocidal dictator who plunged the world into WWII and who mass-murdered 6 million Jews during the Holocaust, with the democratically elected leader of the US,” Hier and Cooper added.

“In truth Palestinians already know a great deal about one of history’s most evil mass murders: Hitler’s hatred for the Jews and war against the Allies, including Great Britain earned him an ally in the Grand Mufti of Palestine, Haj Amin al-Husseini. He met with Hitler personally in Berlin, visited Auschwitz concentration camp and rallied Muslim support and soldiers for the Nazi cause,” they concluded.
