A state-run Syrian newspaper described the Holocaust as a myth. “Why does Israel insist on bringing up this alleged Holocaust policy?” the editor of Tishrin wrote. “I believe Israel and the Zionist organizations have two aims. The first is to receive more money from Germany and other Western establishments on the pretext of compensation for the Holocaust.” The second aim, the editor wrote, “is to invest the myth of the Holocaust and accuse anyone opposed to Zionism and its expansionist policies of anti-Semitism.”
