And then, a few weeks later, Mahmoud Abbas finally acknowledged that the Shoah actually happened.

The New York Times reported that "Yad Vashem, the center for Holocaust research in Jerusalem, said in an email on Sunday afternoon that Mr. Abbas’s statement 'might signal a change' from a situation in which 'Holocaust denial and revisionism are sadly prevalent in the Arab world, including among Palestinians.' The email said 'we expect' the new approach to 'be reflected' in Palestinian websites, school curriculums 'and discourse,' and encouraged the use of its Arabic-language websites and YouTube videos."
