Earlier this week, Actor Veena Malik Tweeted a quote from German Dictator Adolf Hitler, which advocates anti-Semitism. A number of pro-Palestine activists have also quoted Hitler on Twitter.

A number of Hitler quotes have been posted onto Twitter in response to the tensions between Israel and Palestine over the last week.

Adolf Hitler was dictator of Germany between 1933 to 1945 and leader of the Nazi party. A significant goal of Hitler during his leadership was “ethnic cleansing,” in which certain ethnicities, religions and minority groups were murdered on a large scale, most notably Jews who suffered over 6 million deaths.

@GnasherJew posted on Twitter this Wednesday a collage of different quotes posted by other Twitter users that promoted Hitler’s ideas of killing Jews on a large-scale. This was posted with the caption “It’s quite obvious from these examples that many of these people’s aim in unconditionally supporting Hitler isn’t to support Palestinians but to ‘annihilate Jews’.”

One example of such quotes was Pakistani actor Veena Malik, who posted “I would have killed all the Jews of the world…but I kept some to show the world why I killed them,” a well known quote from Adolf Hitler.

Another Tweeter Musaib Khan posted a quote from Hitler’s autobiographical manifesto Mein Kampf which said “Hence today I believe that I am acting in accordance with the will of the Almighty Creator.” However the quote was changed to suggest working for Allah not the original quote which Hitler stated he was “fighting for the work of the Lord.”

This quote had the added caption ” the world would have been at piece today had Hitler once for all wiped all the Zionists off the globe.” This is blatant racism against the Jewish communities.

Furthermore, a Palestinian activist Dr Usman posted a picture of German Dictator with the caption “Hitler was right” and almost straight after praised the work of Hitler, announcing that those who had died from the Holocaust should “Rot in hell forever.” He further suggested that the killing of Jews has led to “Less garbage to deal with.”

The obvious antisemitism and implying that the Jews are better off dead is unacceptable on the behalf of Palestinian supporters. Twitter has been questioned for allowing these posts on their site. #IsraelUnderAttack
