"I want one, even one Jew to come and prove to me that there were no connections between the Zionist leadership and the Nazi movement before World War II," Abbas said. "I have in my possession material which would fill dozens of books to prove this claim, and in the future, I promise to publish this material."

Abbas has a history of making outrageous historical claims as well as of denying the Holocaust. His dissertation at the University of Moscow claims, among other things, that the Nazis only murdered 600,000 Jews, not six million.
