U.S.-educated by whom? “U.S.-Educated Palestinian-Jordanian Author Ibrahim ‘Alloush on Al-Jazeera: The Holocaust is a Lie; Al-Qaeda in Iraq is Legitimate; The U.S. Brought 9/11 Upon Itself,” from MEMRI, with thanks to all who sent this in:
The following are excerpts of an interview with Palestinian-Jordanian author Dr. Ibrahim ‘Alloush, which aired on Al-Jazeera TV on August 23, 2005. The leading Holocaust denial publication Institute for Historical Review, which interviewed ‘Alloush,  described him as a columnist for the Jordanian weekly newspaper Assabeel, as an active participant in the Association Against Zionism and Racism (AZAR), and as editor of the online publication Free Arab Voice.  ‘Alloush studied and lived in the U.S. for 13 years, earning degrees from Ohio University and Oklahoma State University.

‘Alloush: “The Holocaust is exploited to justify the Zionist policies and to justify the enemy state’s right to exist. There is evidence, and scientific research, that prove the Holocaust is a lie. I support the legitimate resistance, and primarily martyrdom operations in Iraq, in Palestine, and wherever there is occupation….
“In principle, I support resistance wherever there is occupation. In Palestine, there is occupation, whose nature is colonialist and not just military. Therefore, targets in Palestine are not civilian. Every colonialist is a legitimate target, and the occupation in Iraq has local supporters, whose targeting is legitimate….
“The Al-Qaeda Jihad organization in Iraq is one of the legitimate Iraqi resistance forces, like the Ba’th and the Al-Sadr movement. Anyone bearing arms against the Americans and their supporters is a legitimate force, and if anyone doesn’t like it, he can include them in the list of terrorist organization — no problem. But I’d like to address the issue of the 9/11 attacks.”
Host: “In brief.”
‘Alloush: “America brought the 9/11 attacks upon itself. Okay? This is a case of the chicken coming home to roost. In other words, you have brought this problem upon yourselves. As long as America occupies the Arab homeland and the Islamic world militarily, politically, economically, and culturally, and as long as it supports the Zionist entity, it should expect something.”
