Abu Mazen: the historian

"Trained as a lawyer and historian, Abbas came to power from a career spent burrowing into the fine points of peace talks." Historian? Historian my...potato. He studied for his PhD in order to deny the Holocaust. In fact, his PhD dissertation at the Patrice Lumumba University for the Cooperation between Peoples dealt exclusively with Holocaust denial. By the way: it is no accident. Find me an Arab friend of Israel, and I will find you an anti-Semite. Name them: `Ali Salim, Muhammad Dahlan, Abu Mazen, Anwar Sadat, Hasan of Morocco, Faruq Husni, Charles Malik, the Phalanges of Lebanon, and the House of Saud as of late. (thanks Olivia)
