Abbas: Holocaust was the 'Most Heinous Crime' of the Modern Era


The mass murder of Jews in the Holocaust was "the most heinous crime" against humanity in the modern era, Palestinian Authority Chairman Mahmoud Abbas said Sunday in his strongest remarks yet on the Nazi genocide, according to Agence France Presse. Veteran Nazi hunter Ephraim Zuroff, Jerusalem director of the Simon Wiesenthal Center, told AFP, "To the best of my memory he hasn't said this before," but added that it could be more a tactical shift than a change of heart.
