Philippines President Duterte and Ghosts of the Past: Hitler was "insane"

(edited)

Standing on the grounds of Israel’s national Holocaust museum on Monday, Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte declared Adolf Hitler “insane,” a jarring turnaround for a man who has previously likened himself to the Führer. Duterte, who is on his first trip to Israel, lamented the genocide of 6 million Jews during World War II while he toured Yad Vashem, according to the Philippine Star. Previously, Duterte has favorably compared his extermination of drug dealers with the Nazi’s killing of Jews. Two years ago, he stirred controversy when he said he was pleased by critics who called him a “cousin of Hitler” since he would “be happy to slaughter” millions of drug users. He later apologized for his remarks, which the Anti-Defamation League termed “inappropriate and deeply offensive.”

Israeli newspaper brands("Haaretz") said Duterte a Hitler admirer, unwanted guest... The editorial is titled “A Hitler Admirer at Yad Vashem”, in reference to Duterte's remarks in October 2016 wherein he compared his deadly drug-war to Hitler's genocide of at least six million Jews. Duterte said then “Hitler massacred three million Jews ... there’s three million drug addicts. There are. I’d be happy to slaughter them.” 

Very clear and precise.

This is what Duterte wrote at the guestbook in Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial:
Never again. May the world learn the lessons of this horrific and benighted period of human history. May the hearts of peoples around the world remain ever open. And may the minds of all men and women learn to work together towards providing a safe haven for all who are being persecuted...
