Here's a bit of happy news out of Egypt, courtesy of Ben Birnbaum:
BUDAPEST -- A leader of Egypt's top secular party says the Sept. 11,
2001, terrorist attacks were "made in the USA," the Holocaust is "a
lie" and Anne Frank's memoir is "a fake" -- comments sure to roil
the post-revolution political debate in the Arab world's most
Ahmed Ezz El-Arab, a vice chairman of Egypt's Wafd Party, made the
remarks in an exclusive interview with The Washington Times last
week while in the Hungarian capital attending the Conference on
Democracy and Human Rights.
He denied that the Nazis killed 6 million Jews during World War II.
"The Holocaust is a lie" Mr. Ezz El-Arab said. "The Jews under
German occupation were 2.4 million. So if they were all
exterminated, where does the remaining 3.6 million come from?"
Yeah, yeah, heard it all before. Except this:
Mr. Ezz El-Arab also attacked the authenticity of "The Diary of Anne
Frank," which he said he studied as a doctoral student in Stockholm.
"I could swear to God it's a fake," the Wafd leader said. "The girl
was there, but the memoirs are a fake."
