A Holocaust Denier at the Washington Post/Newsweek Site
The Washington Post and Newsweek have a special joint project called “On Faith” that has been running for more than a year, a special project that is thoroughly infiltrated by radical Islamists, antisemites, and Holocaust deniers, misleadingly promoted as “interfaith dialog.”
In one of the worst examples, last year on July 24th they published an article on their “Muslims Speak Out” blog (billed as “What Islam Really Says About Violence, Human Rights and Other Religions”) by none other than the spiritual leader of the terrorist group Hizballah, Muhammad Hussein Fadlallah. It’s the usual litany of lies and evasions—jihad is a peaceful inner struggle, women have it great under Islam, etc. ad nauseam—and it’s accompanied by a short bio (whitewashed as much as possible, considering who he is) and a photo in which Fadlallah looks like someone’s kindly grandfather, with his black turban neatly cropped out:
Considered the leading Shi’ite Muslim Intellectual in Lebanon, Grand Ayatollah Muhammad Hussein Fadlallah is a controversial figure known primarily for his support of the armed Shi’ite resistance movement, Hezbollah and for his uncompromising stance against the State of Israel.
Well, here’s a better look at the real Muhammad Hussein Fadlallah from MEMRI TV, featuring the Washington Post/Newsweek’s favorite uncompromising Ayatollah on Hizballah’s Al-Manar TV, March 21, 2008, denying the Holocaust and accusing Israel of using it for “extortion.”
The Washington Post and Newsweek should apologize to the United States for promoting and legitimizing these repellent views in our country. (I can dream, can’t I?)

Ayatollah Muhammad Hussein Fadhlallah: The Hebrew state is preparing to celebrate its 60th anniversary – 60 years since it plundered Palestine - in a festival, which will be attended by the countries of the world, most of which still support the Jewish state and consider the resistance movement to be terrorism. This is what led German Chancellor Merkel to visit that plundering country, which extorted and continues to extort Germany, using as a pretext the German Hitlerist-Nazi past, and the placing of the Jews in a holocaust. Zionism has inflated the number of victims in this holocaust beyond imagination. They say there were six million Jews – not six million, not three million, or anything like that… But the world accepted this [figure], and it does not allow anyone to discuss this.

And today, On Faith is engaged in a full court press to defend Reverend Jeremiah Wright:
