German authorities are looking into a Palestinian leader’s comment about the 50 Holocaust

Aug 22, 2022

Berlin police have opened a starter examination concerning remarks made by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas that minimized the Holocaust. A Berlin resident whose grandparents were Holocaust survivors recorded an objection against Abbas, who said that Israel had caused (50 holocausts) in Palestine starting around 1947. Berlin police affirmed Friday that the grievance is being researched and said it will be sent to the public investigator (soon).

Holocaust forswearing

Holocaust forswearing, as well as making light of its importance, are criminal offenses and can bring about a jail term of as long as five years, as per German regulation. Abbas was talking in Berlin at a joint question and answer session with Chancellor Olaf Scholz, who has been scrutinized for his drowsy judgment of the comment. The German unfamiliar service said Abbas has resistance under worldwide regulation and he was in Germany on an ‘official visit. Germany doesn’t perceive Palestine as a sovereign state.
