Anti-Zionism is antisemitism: Israel haters upset UAE schools will teach about the Holocaust

i24News reports:

The United Arab Emirates Embassy in the United States has announced that the Holocaust will be taught in school curricula. 

According to the embassy, ​​the content of the studies on Nazi Germany's genocidal murder of six million Jews during World War II will be developed in collaboration with Israel's official Holocaust Memorial Yad Vashem in Jerusalem, and will be included in the curriculum of primary and secondary school students.
This news is upsetting Arab haters of Israel.

The UK-based Al Quds site didn't directly criticize it - but it framed it this way:
Coinciding with the occupation’s violation of the sanctity of the Holy Mosque, and the escalation of attacks and threats against the Palestinian people, the UAE announced the inclusion of Holocaust studies in the educational curricula within its schools...
Hamas strongly condemned the announcement.

Hezbollah's Deputy Secretary-General in Lebanon, Sheikh Naim Qassem, tweeted his disapproval, implying that the Holocaust was not nearly as bad as what Israel does, and warning the UAE that "You will not benefit from appeasing the Israeli entity to obtain protection, they are moving towards annihilation."

The subtext is that teaching the Holocaust could make Arabs sympathetic to Jews, and this is unacceptable.

I expected more criticism, to be honest. But the Arabic op-ed cycle often takes a couple of days to get geared up.
