As the world marked Holocaust Remembrance Day on Sunday, a senior aide to Egyptian president Mohamed Morsi alleged that the Holocaust is a “myth” and an “industry America invented.”
The aide, Fathi Shihab-Eddim, is responsible for appointing the editors of Egypt’s state-run newspapers. He explained that “U.S. intelligence agencies in cooperation with their counterparts in allied nations during World War II created [the Holocaust] to destroy the image of their opponents in Germany, and to justify war and massive destruction against military and civilian facilities of the Axis powers, and especially to hit Hiroshima and Nagasaki with the atomic bomb.”
Somebody get President Morsi, looks like the administration needs him on damage-control duty.
