Palestinian radio celebrates Hitler

Thursday, December 06, 2007 |  by Staff Writer  

Voice of Palestine radio last month broadcast a biography of Adolph Hitler celebrating his military victories and heroism, the watchdog group Palestinian Media Watch reported this week.

The radio station, which is controlled by Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas' government, failed to mention Hitler's attempted extermination of the Jews. That came as little surprise to those familiar with Abbas' previous denial of the Holocaust.

Palestinian Media Watch noted that the Palestinian education system likewise ignores the systematic slaughter of Europe's Jews during World War II.

Hitler's autobiography, Mein Kampf, remains a best-seller in the Palestinian Authority-controlled territories.
