Germany Condemns Palestinian Leader Over Holocaust Remarks

BERLIN—The German authorities summoned the Palestinian consultant in Berlin in protest over a remark by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas on Tuesday accusing Israel of committing 50 Holocausts because it was based.

German Chancellor Olaf Scholz stood alongside Mr. Abbas because the president made the remark, and later confronted criticism for not instantly pushing again. Mr. Scholz mentioned on Wednesday that he was “disgusted by the outrageous remarks.”
