Following are excerpts from an interview with Thaer Ahmad Ibrahim, secretary of the media committee of the Syrian Lawyers Union, which aired on Al-Dunya TV on June 18, 2012.
Thaer Ahmad Ibrahim: Elie Wiesel is a dangerous man. He is the most dangerous man there is – even more dangerous than Bernard-Henri Lévy…
Interviewer: The godfather of the Arab Spring…
Thaer Ahmad Ibrahim: There is no Arab Spring.
This Elie Wiesel has a hundred doctorates, and he has been labeled "the Guardian of Zion." Jimmy Carter entrusted him with the mission of establishing the so-called "Holocaust Museum" in America.
Let me get back to Elie Wiesel. He is the most dangerous and morally base human being in the world today.
He is the greatest enemy of President Bashar Al-Assad. You might be surprised by this. Elie Wiesel has people who deify him and worship him like a god.
Elie Wiesel said to Obama, who is one of his worshippers… You may be surprised by the names I reveal to you, but what I am telling you is substantiated: Amr Moussa, Kofi Annan, the Dalai Lama, the president of Senegal, various Arab intellectuals and personalities… They all deify the man called Elie Wiesel.
For anybody who wants to know more about Elie Wiesel, there is a website called "First Person Singular." There are photographs of him with all the world leaders, and you can even see in these photos how he is being deified.
I would like to stress once again that Elie Wiesel is a very dangerous man. He has become something of a legend, because he is considered the only survivor of the Holocaust. He was in the Auschwitz camp in Poland, and then was transferred to Buchenwald, Germany, at the end of the World War, when the US forces arrived to liberate the Holocaust detainees.
That man pays 5 million dollars to each and every cinema in France, so that they will all screen a film that incites to attack Syria and Iran with a nuclear bomb. The film is 12 minutes long, and he pays each cinema 5 million dollars to screen it.
Interviewer: Why in France?
Thaer Ahmad Ibrahim: Because Bernard Lévy is now considered his assistant or deputy there.
