PLO’s ambassador to Poland visits Auschwitz

This is an extremely rare move, given the Holocaust denial pervasive throughout the Arab world, along with all kinds of other conspiracy theories ranging from what happened on 9/11 to a belief that Israeli melons have AIDS.
Until Arab societies rid themselves of these kinds of conspiracy theories, they will not fully integrate into the modern world. Khaled Soufan’s visit is a welcome start. Lets hope other Arab and Islamic leaders don’t condemn him for it.

The PLO’s ambassador to Poland, Khaled Soufan, has visited the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp.
He was accompanied by David Peleg, the Israeli ambassador to Poland. The two spent some two and a half hours in the camp, during which Soufan told Peleg that only when one visits Auschwitz, can one grasp the scope of the Holocaust.
Soufan, a former PLO ambassador to Hungary, befriended the Israeli ambassador in Budapest and expressed his interest in visiting the concentration camp.
After signing the camp’s visitors’ journal, Soufan told reporters he was there to convey his solidarity with the Jewish people’s suffering during World War II.
The PLO ambassador is not the only unlikely visitor to the camp: The Pakistani ambassador to Poland visited Auschwitz earlier in October and several of the Pakistani military officials are scheduled to visit it in the next few weeks.
