Arabic media is reporting that the PA foreign ministry issued a statement on Holocaust Remembrance Day, saying that "The Holocaust was the greatest sin committed by the hand of man against all of humanity, and in an unendurable manner that is inconceivable, with ethnic cleansing, and genocide."
Like Catherine Ashton, the statement (as published in the media) didn't mention Jews.
However, the PA went further, saying "the journey of mankind since has resulted in a number of evil and disastrous situations, which must be addressed, violating justice, humanity and international law and international humanitarian law, including the apartheid system, which prevailed prominently in South Africa, and the system of the Israeli occupation and control over the Palestinian people and their land and who deported them by force, and usurped their homeland, freedom and dignity." and it called on the United Nations and its organizations, and all nations of the world, to "take action to protect humanity from the recurrence of such crimes, and removing them immediately, and to go after the perpetrators."
Do you think that their comparison of Israel to Nazi Germany was too subtle?
Hamas media was critical that the PA condemned the Holocaust in the first place.
That might be the reason why I couldn't find this statement on the PA foreign ministry website.
