Jonathan Greenblatt, CEO and National Director of the Anti-Defamation League, writing in USA Today:
Let’s be clear: Holocaust denial is nothing more than anti-Semitism. It is an attempt to deny the Jewish people their history, one of many tactics used by bigots in the long-running campaign to delegitimize the Jewish people. Deniers claim the Holocaust never happened or that some much smaller number of Jews did die but primarily from diseases. They also claim that accounts of the Holocaust are merely propaganda generated by Jews for their own benefit. Denialism is often used by some of the world’s foremost anti-Semites — among them David Duke, Ali Khamenei and Arthur Jones — to foment hate against Jews.
