The Arabs and the Holocaust: The Arab-Israeli War of Narratives Gilbert Achcar Translated from the French by G. M. Goshgarian Saqi () Contents Preface 9 Introduction: Words Laden With Pain 13 Shoah, Holocaust, Jewish Genocide "As the author of a book on Arabs and the Holocaust, I urge you to have the PM tone down his focus on the Mufti as the source of Hitler's extermination policy.

The Arabs and the Holocaust: The Arab-Israeli War of Narratives Gilbert Achcar, G. M. Goshgarian An unprecedented and judicious examination of what the Holocaust means—and doesn't mean—in the Arab world, one of the most explosive subjects of our timeThere is no more inflammatory topic than the Arabs and the Holocaust—the phrase alone can.   Arabs were neither participants nor victims. Racial anti-Semitism, moreover, was a product of European history, not of Arab or Islamic history. There is, on the face of it, no more need for a book on the Arabs and the Holocaust than for a book on the Africans or the Australians and the Holocaust.
