Arguably this doesn’t even qualify as news, so commonplace is this specie of viciousness among Israel’s enemies. On Holocaust Remembrance Day, though? With a conference set to begin next week at UC on the “real” Holocaust in Gaza? We can find some space for it. Given the magnitude of jihadists’ many sins — murder, misogyny, incitement to genocide — historical revisionism is comparatively small, but still useful as an insight into that special blend of willful ignorance and spectacular ruthlessness we know and hate them for. Propaganda in this vein helps them among Arabs, I guess, as a way of delegitimizing Israel, but it’s poisonous to their credibility in (most of) the west. So why do it?
