You WILL believe! Or else!
Holocaust Fundamentalism - You WILL Believe

By Mark Green

You've seen the films. You've read the books. You've taken the courses. You've heard the news. Soon, your children will be visiting the museums. Everybody knows it's true.

The era of mandatory belief in The Holocaust has arrived. Articles central to The Faith include unwavering commitment to Jewish casualty numbers with a full and complete understanding of the manner in which innocent Jews were gassed, murdered and executed in Nazi Germany. Recalcitrant non-believers are now being rounded up. The typical rhetoric goes: "these bigots deny the facts and lessons garnered from humankind's experience during WWII. Their unique kind of poison will not be tolerated. This is a democracy. You are under arrest."

Only this is not a movie. This is real.

In Europe and North America, Holocaust skeptics are being apprehended, arrested and are now facing lengthy prison terms. Few people have noticed. Nobody's supposed to care. Big media certainly doesn't. Nor the politicians. These Holocaust-denying apostates include British author and historian David Irving, Holocaust revisionist Ernst Zundel, German chemist Gemar Rudolf, and others. Their crimes involve disbelief: they dispute the official version of events involving Jews during WWII.

In an era where nearly anything goes, why does the truth need special laws to protect it? Curious, that.

Beginning Jan. 27, 2006, and continuing every year thereafter, the United Nations will inaugurate its first annual Holocaust Remembrance Day. This Israeli-sponsored resolution not only institutionalizes and broadens global sensitivity to The Holocaust, but it will surely aid in prosecuting individuals who reject official Holocaust dogma. The State Church has arrived. It's creed: Holocaust fundamentalism.

Question: to what extent do these escalating measures have more than nothing to do with America's "special relationship" with the Jewish State, our war in Iraq, and our saber-rattling towards Syria and Iran? Just curious.

Resistance to the global New Doctrine however is growing. Among the arguments:

Laws regulating 'historical interpretation' are themselves a crime. Take your Thought Control laws and shove it.

Primary question: How many Jews died (and how many were deliberately killed) during WWII? How do we know?

In how many Western Democracies is doubting the "correct number " of Jewish victims during WWII now against the law? (seven)

It's known that after the second world war, the Red Cross put the number of Jewish deaths at considerably less than one million. That's still a lot of dead people. Yes, it is theoretically possible that 6,000,000 Jews were killed during the war, but--forgive me--I sense a bold exaggeration.

But aside from that, since when is skepticism a crime? Where are the bodies, for instance? May I have a list of names, please?

Even the Yard Vashem Holocaust Museum in Israel, after 60 years, can only muster three million names, and many of those names are of Jews who merely died (or disappeared) during WWII, causes unknown. Many names appear more than once. In a similar vein, while the number of Jews murdered at Auschwitz was officially reduced by millions in recent years, the irreducible number of "six million Jews" remains. Isn't it possible that there's some politically-motivated chicanery here?

It is, after all, indisputable that some earlier "facts" regarding the Holocaust have been streamlined and smoothed out for popular consumption. The lamp shade and human soap stories, for instance, have been quietly retired. The secret dealings between Nazis and Zionists during WWII have been suppressed. Another ignored fact concerns the lethal Typhus epidemics in the death camps. Why have they been airbrushed from popular memory?

One problem is that all the "experts" tend to be Jewish and show bias on the subject. How many Germans died in WWII? Five million? Actually I'm not sure, since their suffering isn't supposed to matter and therefore their casualties aren't noted. What was the total number of dead in WWII?--50 million? How many have died in wars during the 20th Century?--275 million? (that's Zbig. Brezinski's estimate). Considering this, even if six million Jews were deliberately killed during WWII, shouldn't we demand that the Zionized world stop caring so singularly about Jewish suffering? The Jewish obsession with everything Jewish is shamefully narcissistic and burdensome. Their defiant ethnocentrism is an ongoing insult to the rest of the human race.

As for the "un-revisable" six million figure, Jews have superstitious reasons pertaining to the number "six" for claiming that six million died. In fact, similar charges about six million Jews were made, incredibly, in 1919, concerning the fantastic number of Jews facing death during WWI. These nutty allegations were even published in the NY Times. The claimants were Jewish.

But why?

Another reason Jews want to hype the number of victims is that they wanted to have the greatest causality count so they could claim supreme victimhood and reap the political rewards. Holocaust lore is essential to the precarious legitimacy of the Jewish State. Just ask the Palestinians.

But the Holocaust story as now told is a libel on the German people, since it pretends to show that German anti-Semitism sprang from nowhere. But the real story is more complicated.

Rightly or wrongly, the Nazis blamed the Jews for America's entry into WWI as well as the unjust and punitive Treaty of Versailles which followed. It's also undeniable that international Jewry "declared war" (and launched an international boycott) on Hitler's Germany in 1933. Even the outrage know as "Kristallnacht" was provoked in part by a Jewish assassin (Herschel Grynszpan) who, on November 7, 1938, walked into the German embassy in Paris and shot and killed Ernest vom Rath, a German diplomat.

We know, for instance, that soon after the turn of the century, Jews comprised many if not most of the leading political radicals in Europe. They were instrumental in orchestrating and managing the Communist revolution which killed millions of non-Jews well before Hitler's rise. Why aren't the Nazi-hunters interested in finding any of these mass-murderers? Is it justice they're after, or revenge and political advantage? The "innocent little Jewish shopkeeper" archetype as peddled on TV is a self-exculpating myth.

However, that Jews were persecuted and murdered during Hitler's reign is irrefutable. I've never seen or read a Holocaust "denier" who claims otherwise. Not one. The extraordinary claim that "6,000,000 Jews were systematically murdered" is what they contest. This deliberate mischaracterization of Holocaust revisionism has been spread widely and purposefully by keepers of the Holocaust faith. And the disinformation continues to flow.

David Irving, the imprisoned author of dozens of works on WWII, is now alleged to have recently "recanted" some of his "Holocaust denial claims". But his change-of-heart cannot believed so long as he is being held captive on account of his scholarship.

One reader suggested that we call the search for truth in this matter "Holocaust factualism". Good start. Both teams in this historical divide are clearly inundated with advocates posing as scholars. The entire investigation therefore has been rigged from the start. At the same time, it can't be denied that those championing the Official Version are basically holding all the political cards and resources.

But even if we accept their self-serving stories and invisible body counts, it's still outrageous that the Jews and their lackeys deliberately ignore all the non-Jewish fatalities in Hitler's "death camps". Holocaust survivor, Bruno Bettelheim, writing in his book, "Surviving", notes that according to the Communists in East Germany in 1945, as many as 11 million died in Hitler's gulags, of which 5.5 to six million were Jewish. This means that, according to Bettelheim, it's possible that as many as half of Hitler's concentration camp victims were gentiles! Where are the monuments to these innocent people? Why is their story being suppressed? Or should we now direct this Kosher Inquisition towards Bruno Bettelheim?

Whatever your view on the casualty count (or the disputed gas chamber stories), the focus must return to the core issue: intellectual freedom.

Historical truth doesn't need to be protected by any special law or speech code. Irving, Zundel, Rudolf and others, need and deserve our unwavering support if we intend to remain even nominally free.

"The Iranian president was correct in what he stated -- and the hatred towards him and his words indicates how powerful his words were"

Mskes you wonder why "liberal progressives" support the most oppressive regimes on the planet.
The new alliance: Nazi/islamist/leftits (it's actually not so new, it's just more blatant) the unifying factor of course is Judenhasse (atred of Jews)

The zionist racists will try to outlaw free speech in the USA just like they have in Europe.When people go to prison for criticizing the holocaust story democracy is dead.Why isn't the media covering the imprisonent of these writers? The mass movement against zionism and Israel is growing rapidly in the USA and Europe.The zionists are scared and threatened by this popular support for the Palestinians and the anger at Israel.So they 're cracking down on free speech.
Nazis will be Nazis

" The zionist racists will try to outlaw free speech in the USA just like they have in Europe"

LMAO...Yeah those Zionists in: Germany, Poland, Austria, France etc control everything.
Actually, Europeans experienced Nazism first hand, they don't think it would be nice for it to happen again.
Moslems, particularly Arabs were nazis during WWI, and they're still naizs today. Supported of course by their "liberal progressive" friends.

the people who have outlawed freespeech in Euopre are people who supply ZIonists with the means to destroy our Palestinian neighbors. Especialy the Germans who have given ZIonists huge pills of cash to destroy Palestinian lives.

Without the holocaust alligations, what rationalizations would Euopean politicians have for supllying ZIonists with the means to be murderous thieves of Palestinian lands??? 2 of them would be that Hebrews were 1 of many foriegn invadors of the land and that a small Jewish minority was in the lands. Those are the same BS rationalization Nazis used to be murderous thieves in Czechoslovakia. germans once ruled Bohemia and Moravia in the Holy Roman Empire and there were German speeking people in the Sudaten Mountains.

So, without the holocuast alligations, Euopean politicians would have to admit that they share the moral ethics of Nazis as they supply ZIonists with the means to be murderous thieves of Palestinian lands. With the holocaust alligations, Euopean politicians still shall the moral ethics of Nazis, but at least they have an issue to muddy the waters. A pretty pathetic issue. Other alleged Christians were evil to Jews so helping Zionists be murderous thieves of palestinian lands is supposed to be good for thier souls, or something like that.

Yep, in world war 1, Arabs supported England, the Nazis of the day, and got stabbed in the back by the Nazis of the day.

After the Nazis of the day, England, occupied the Palestinian's,
and other Arabic speeking people's homelands, and the dalfour declaration of war against Palestinians made the ZIonist's offensive war of conquest clear for all to see, it would be pretty stupid to believe Arabs would aid England in world war 2. AND some Palestinians, occupied by England and being invaded by ZIonists like Hungarians invaded Slovakian lands under the Nazi's guns, DID escape Brittish occupation and made there way to Germany where they helped Nazis fight the people who declared war against palestinians in 1917 Balfour declaration of war, England and Zionists. But still, it was England and Zionists who declared war against the Palestinians in 1917, and not Palestinians declaring war on Jews, as some vacant shills try to convince you.

There's no such thing as a "palestinian".
The arabs living in the region are arabs from any number of the 22 arab nations.
The funny thing about that, is that the arbs arrived in the region looking for work, because the dreaded "Zionists" made overgrazed and vacant land productive.

Gang terrorizes train in France

By Marc Burleigh
January 5, 2006

PARIS -- A gang of more than 20 youths -- thought to be North African immigrants -- terrorized hundreds of train passengers in a rampage of violence, robbery and sexual assault on New Year's Day, French officials said yesterday.
The five-hour-long criminal frenzy was "totally unacceptable," French President Jacques Chirac told reporters. "Those guilty will be found and punished, as they deserve."
The gang of between 20 and 30 youths boarded the train, heading from Nice on the French Riviera to Lyon, in eastern France, early on Jan. 1, as it carried 600 passengers home from New Year's Eve partying overnight.
Once inside, they went wild, forcing passengers to hand over mobile phones and wallets, and slashing seats and breaking windows.
A 20-year-old woman cornered by several of the marauders was sexually molested.
"It was a real scene of pillage on the train," said the regional state prosecutor, Dominique Luigi, adding that the passengers were in a state of "panic.
