While there is no definition of "Holocaust" here, while we don't know what it is expressly that Israeli Arabs no longer believe, this news item reflects a world
wide drift away from the simplistic acceptance of The Story that our professorial class clings to with such single-mindedness.

JERUSALEM (JTA) -- Some 40 percent of Israeli Arabs believe the Holocaust never happened, according to a new survey.
The figure is up from 28 percent in 2006, according to an annual University of Haifa poll of Jewish-Arab relations released Sunday.
The poll also found that 41 percent of Israeli Arabs believe the country should exist as a Jewish and democratic state, down from 65.5 percent in 2003. In addition, some 53.7 percent believe that Israel has a right to exist as an independent country, down from 81 percent in 2003.
The survey polled 700 Arab-Israeli and Druse men and women.
