Trivialize of the Nazism on Indy Belgium and France (english)
06 Sep 2002
Defends the Palestine, attacks the Sharon government, the methods of the army is an things. That this was an occasion for the racists and the anti-semites to express themself under the cover of a pro-Palestinian label is another things.


Trivialize of the Nazism on Indy Belgium and France






Trivialize of the Nazism on Indy Belgium and
France*
... the depreciation is going
to splash everything, it is going to damage all the activists
and the fights who will have expressed themselves on Indymedia
in particular it harms the just Palestinian cause which certain
number of administrators so believes to defend.




A revisionist in Indymedia Belgique

One of the administrators of Indymedia Belgium and Indymedia
France published on the list [indy-France-EDITO]
of June which is use to the coordination of the editorial team
a speak openly revisionist. This text published on the 7/06/02
provoked the departure of three persons Massalia, Astala and Tatahari
of the editorial team, the other Indymedia France's members, Belgium
and Europe which expressed themselves, supported globally this
(revisionist) administrator whose nickname is Red Kitten.

For Red Kitten: " extermination camps only were provided
with gas chambers, but were rather unproductive... they were not
created by strict racist madness, but are mainly the most level
of exploitation of human being by the middle-class and the imperialism.
" (To see text joined below).

A big part of the administrators who expressed themselves,
supports and show they solidarity whith Red Kitten. Indymedia
seems to fall in a trap: the support of a companion who (in the
best) is delirious, then the coming together with those who support
this companion, as the Internet user " Do ", "Dominique",
" himalove "; (look at:http://www.france.indymedia.org/front.php3?article_id=20492&group=webcas)
who uses in their publications texts of people for a long time
crossed to the fascist enemy (in France, Faurisson and Garaudy
who are close ideologically to the National Front).
If this trap closes, the depreciation is
going to splash everything, it is going to damage all the activists
and the ideals expressed themselves on Indymedia in particular
it harms the just Palestinian cause which certain number of administrators
so believes to defend.

This alert on the revisionist "drift" of one of Indymedia's
team members was passed on on various Indymedia mailing lists.
So I join the various answers of condemnation or support.

The author of the revisionist comments
should be thrown out of the Indymedia team, his comments should
be denied clearly and publicly. Everything should be made to prevent
that Indymedia Belgium falls under the influence of revisionists.

That does not seem to start to be done.

Indy-France-EDITO ] Article on israeliens concentration camps

Red kitten imc-france-edito at lists.indymedia.org
Fri, 07 Jun on 2002 16:20:07 0700

On the article (comparison of concentration camps Israelian
/ German) I find the process null, but it is rather logical: the
camps of the Nazis look like whatever camps builds with rationalism,
whatever of more normal that those of Israel are similar? It does
not moreover indicate big thing...

Israel = Nazis?
We always compares the big criminals to the Nazis, who in our
collective mythology represents the absolute evil on earth...
It is a little bit easy, but OK. Then why not to do it with the
Israely governments ? Because they are Jewish! Oh OK? And however,
nobody never rebelled against the fact of comparing Stalin to
Hitler, whereas Soviet suffered largely more from the Nazis than
the Jews (for the sordid figures: 6.000.000 of Jews deaths, 20.000.000
of Soviet)

There is camps and camps...
In addition I allowed me to point out the difference between concentration
camps and extermination camps. Most of the camps were concentration
camps, that mean regrouping. Their function was especially the
maximal exploitation of the captives in the profis of the war
economy and of the German middle-class. Extermination camps only
were provided with gas chambers, but were rather unproductive.
The confusion between the two was accurately maintained to mask
the economic dimension of the camps: they were not created by
strict racist madness, but are mainly the most height
level of exploitation of human being by the middle-class and the
imperialism. This side was voluntarily masked to not reveal the
role of the capitalism in the massacre, but to put all the responsibility
to the irrational hate (it's quite more convenient)

Being seen on indy-France-EDITO

Article on israelians concentration camps

On the 8/06/02, red kitten has ecrit:

" On the article (comparison of concentration camps Israelian
/ German) I find the process null, but it is rather logical: the
camps of the Nazis look like whatever camps builds with rationalism,
whatever of more normal that those of Israel are similar? It does
not moreover indicate big thing... "

Why do not to compare with the other camps then. As the one
of Sangate, the one that the americains have in Cuba...
This comparison does not aim to compare the camps, but the processes.

" Israel = Nazis?
We always compares the big criminals to the Nazis, who in our
collective mythology represents the absolute evil on earth...
It is a little bit easy, but OK. Then why not to do it with the
Israely governments ? Because they are Jewish! Oh OK? And however,
nobody never rebelled against the fact of comparing Stalin to
Hitler"

You make a mistake, in the antifascist fight, we are numerous
to beat against this mixture (and a lot of with the Nazis), because
it is extremely important, it plays totally in against us. One
of the reasons, especially uses by the extreme-right-hand side,
to compare staline to hitler, is not to obtain the same refusal
of staline and hitler, but on the contrary, to obtain the same
impunity for hitler (and of the Nazis) than for Stalin (I shall
not discuss if it's just or not).

" whereas Soviet suffered largely more from the Nazis
than the Jews (for the sordid figures: 6.000.000 of Jews deaths,
20.000.000 of Soviet) "

I think that you go on one hillside very slippery. It's again
exactly the same argument uses by the extreme-right-hand side.
The war does deaths, and it is true that we forgets a little bit
fast the 20 millions of soviet died at the moment where we receives
Bush for the celebration of the landing in Normandy.
But the mechanics of extermination systematics, industrial, -
the final solution, organized by the Nazis has nothing of similar
. It has not to compare the number of what is not comparable.
The final solution is the most abominable thing which was thought,
as regular as clockwork, in our history. It is what give a particular
character to the shoa.
And the question of the figure is a false question.

"There is camps and camps...
In addition I allowed me to point out the difference between concentration
camps and extermination camps. Most of the camps were concentration
camps, that mean regrouping. Their function was especially the
maximal exploitation of the captives in the profis of the war
economy and of the German middle-class. Extermination camps only
were provided with gas chambers, but were rather unproductive.
The confusion between the two was accurately maintained to mask
the economic dimension of the camps: they were not created by
strict racist madness, but are mainly the most level of exploitation
of human being by the middle-class and the imperialism. This side
was voluntarily masked to not reveal the role of the capitalism
in the massacre, but to put all the responsibility to the irrational
hate (it's quite more convenient)"


The abomination Nazi went effectively at the end of the capitalist
logic, by making soaps, clipboards... with men, women and children.

There is nothing of such in Israel. Once again, we can't agree
to compare what is not comparable.

It is for that I would join Massalia.

" I do not know if we have to see in these answers some
"angélisme", some naivety or the other thing.
For me, all this makes me jump up and roar. "

All these false arguments are against
the Palestinian cause and make the games of ALL the extremists:
they trivialize the Nazism; they show the ignorance on the subject
(Nazism) of the one that spreads them, and consequently, he risks
to not be listening on the problem of the Palestinian.

I don't understand why it is necessary
always to add excess to support the Palestinian people. The reality,
all the reality, is already sufficient for that. These people
aren't they so not convinced of the correctness of the fight of
the Palestinian that they are obliged to used these doubtful comparisons.

To beat since a lot of time against the extreme right ideas
and the négationisme, I would say carefree that this text
is an anti-semitic dirty. To avoid attacks, he hides by using
the word Zionism, but indeed to say Jew. The Jews behind the big
capital, it's reminder me of things.

We are anti-capitalist, and to fall into the trap from this
fellow me made me concerns. The great man of the fight against
the muslim after the 11 september is not a Jew, it is G. Bush.

That one uses the palestinian cause to
pour its anti-semitic hate makes me pile. Let us not fall into
the trap. The group unite-radical (GUD)** supports the Palestinian
cause not because they have something to make with but because
it allows them to attack the Jews.

Personally I fights the capitalists and the extreme right-hand
side that she is French, American, israelian, that she is Christian,
Jewish or Moslim. I recognize as friends refuzniks (objectors
of consciousness) who are Jewish israelians (being I the same
objector).

Defends the Palestine, attacks the Sharon
government, the methods of the army and the supports in France
to these fascists is an things. That this was an occasion for
the racists and the anti-semites to express themself under the
cover of a pro-Palestinian label is another things in which I
don't want to participate.

Red Kitten the administrator concerned " persists and signs "
directly on
the alert launched on Monday , June 10 as follows: Red

Redkitten (at) indymedia.be
I confirm the sentence "
extermination camps only were provided with gas chambers, but
were rather unproductive. " And I waits that some one explains
to me in what it would be revisionist. -----
1- The concentration camps (generaly of work)
and extermination camps are not the same thing. Concentration
camps serve to concentrating a population given in a small space
generaly accompanied with a wild economic exploitation. An extermination camp aims at exterminating by some
means a population given. The difference adorned
me clearly, even if in the practice, both concepts can be coexisting
or additional. ----- 2- The
extermination camps are unproductive in the sense that, contrary
to the labour camps, they produce nothing, and on the contrary,
need some contribution of workforce, energy and material which
produces nothing (but destroys the life) While
one explains to me in what this is revisionist, while I don't
speak about their existence, or, when and in which quantity. ----- 3- The purpose of this demonstration
was to clarify an used terminology (too often) and everywhere,
and also to remember the economic dimension of the Nazi concentration
camps. Refugee camps in the Europe of Schengen,
for example, are concentration camps (because there locks a type
of population) but are not extermination camps. -----
Finally, this method to display the internal
problems of a collective Indymedia, by avoiding the dialogue and
explaining publicly arguments in a one-sided way seem to me very
remote from Indymedia's principles... [ And
as for my pseudo, no problem, name, first name, address and registry
office known for the editorial staff, it is noway a protection]
