I didn’t think that was possible, either, but Jonathan Kay has details about the guests of honor at Toronto’s Palestine House next month:
Sheikh Sabri has repeatedly praised suicide bombers, especially children younger than 17. In an interview with an Egyptian paper, Sheikh Sabri said: “There is no doubt that a child [martyr] suggests that a new generation will carry on the mission with determination. The younger the martyr – the greater and the more I respect him.”
Asked how he felt about Jews, Sabri answered: “…I am filled with rage toward the Jews. I have never greeted a Jew when I came near one. I never will. They cannot even dream that I will. The Jews do not dare to bother me, because they are the most cowardly creatures Allah has ever created….”
Like other Holocaust Deniers, Sheikh Sabri has questioned the severity of the Holocaust. He stated in a 2000 interview with La Republica: ‘Six million Jews Dead? No way, they were much fewer. Let’s stop with this fairytale exploited by Israel to capture international solidarity. It is not my fault if Hitler hated Jews, indeed they were hated a little everywhere”.
