Saudi Scholar Demands Holocaust Recount [semi-satire]
Dr. Walid Al-Rashudi, head of the Department of Islamic Studies at King Saud University, Saudi Arabia, has decried the incessant Zionist propaganda regarding the so-called Holocaust.
At issue, according to Rashudi, is the head-count of victims. If 6 million died, where are the bodies? Rashudi demanded to know, apparently unaware that most of the victims bodies had be cremated.
Rashudi provided his own best estimate that about 50 to 60 Jews, at most died and speculated that the majority of these were probably killed by Allied bombing.
Hitler has been slandered, Rashudi claimed. And Jews have used this slander to extort money from innocent Germans.
The real crime is Jewish occupation of Palestine, Rashudi said. By Allah, we will not be satisfied even if all the Jews are killed. The very memory of their existence must be expunged from human consciousness.
Fatwas are like noses, everybody has one. Somehow the words “rare” and “fatwa” have not been commonly connected in the last several years.
