Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas was quoted Monday as saying that the Zionist movement had links with the Nazis before World War Two.

Abbas was speaking during a lengthy interview with Al-Mayadeen, a Beirut-based TV station that is affiliated with Hezbollah and Iran.

The full interview will be broadcast later this week.

Asked about allegations that he was a Holocaust denier, Abbas said that he had "70 more books that I still haven't published" about the alleged link between the Zionist movement and the Nazis.

"I challenge anyone to deny the relationship between Zionism and Nazism before World War Two," Abbas said.
