Explain why you are defending a man, Israel Shamir, who posted on his own website:
Mohammed Omar: Should it be allowed to criticize the Zionist version of the Holocaust?
Israel Shamir: More than that, I think it is a duty to do so.I think it is every Muslim's and Christian's duty to deny the Holocaust, to reject this belief, just as Abraham and Moses rejected the idols. Any person who confesses to God should deny the Holocaust. I think it's much more serious that people deny God, right?
It's pretty cut and dry.
1) The Guardian has called Shamir "notorious for Holocaust denial and publishing a string of antisemitic articles."
2) Shamir is described by New York Magazine as "an anti-semitic Holocaust denier"
3) The British anti-racist organization Hope not Hate has listed Shamir as a "notable Holocaust denier," citing the "rabid Holocaust denial material" on his website
