Roger Garaudy, later Ragaa Garaudy,(17 July 1913 – 13 June 2012) was a French philosopher, French resistance fighter and a prominent communist author. He converted to Islam in 1982 after marrying a Palestinian woman and became a prominent Islamic commentator and supporter of the Palestinian cause. In 1998, he was convicted and fined for "Holocaust denial" in the book The Founding Myths of Israeli Politics. The controversy increased interest for Holocaust revisionism in Muslim countries.
