“All respect to Hitler.”
That’s the response from one Palestinian man in a video asking people in the West Bank what they know about the Holocaust.
Corey Gil-Shuster, the host of the “Ask an Israeli/Ask a Palestinian Project” on YouTube, encountered Palestinians who said the Jews have exaggerated the number killed by the Nazis; accused Israel of behaving like Nazi Germany; and even offered praise for Adolf Hitler, according to the video’s translation.
While the translations voiced by the video’s interpreter are rough and incomplete, they seem to give a glimpse of Palestinian views of the Holocaust. (TheBlaze has not independently verified the translations, and is presenting paraphrased thoughts expressed by the interviewees as heard on the video.)
Gil-Shuster, who moved to Israel from Canada, presented himself as a Canadian on the streets of Ramallah and Nablus, where admitting he is Israeli could be dangerous. One interviewee, a man named Mohammed, insisted that only 100,000 Jews were killed in the Holocaust, but that Jews continue to exaggerate and say it was 6 million.
