More on Satloff, Holocaust-denial, and the Arab world

In an earlier posting, I mentioned Robert Satloff and his new book, Among the Righteous, about the long reach of the Holocaust into North Africa and Arabs who saved Jews from it. He is interviewed on NPR here (requires RealPlayer).

Hat-tip to Adam ... :)

POSTSCRIPT: Listening to Satloff, reading book excerpts, and thinking about our postings here on the Arab world made me think: fascistic ideologies had a strong influence in parts of the Arab world, most of all in Syria and Iraq, less so but still significantly in Iran, Turkey, and Egypt. However, they had little to no influence in North Africa, whose countries have also had since the 1940s a more moderate stance in the Arab-Israel conflict. I wonder why? (That's not a rhetorical question.) I have half-baked theories, but nothing that stands up.
