American Jewish Committee today issued this statement in response to an address by Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas.

Palestinian President Abbas's doctoral dissertation blaming Jews for the Holocaust was dredged up again in his latest unhinged antisemitic rant.
He defended Hitler's motivation in murdering six million Jews.
Now he says Jews are responsible for all the turmoil in the Middle East.
This type of "leadership" only breeds violence, not progress. World leaders committed to peace in that region must stop giving Abbas a free pass, and condemn his hateful rhetoric.
