    Congratulations to The Israelis for saying that combative duffers are inherently good, sensitive, creative, and inoffensive. That obviously wins the prize for being the most besotted and appalling thing I’ve ever heard. Before I start, however, I should state that to understand what its particularly blathering form of faddism has encompassed as a movement and as a system of rule, we have to look at its historical context and development as a form of cantankerous politics that first arose in early twentieth-century Europe in response to rapid social upheaval, the devastation of World War I, and the Bolshevik Revolution. To conclude, The Israelis sees people like you and me as the perfect drones for its future globalist regime.

    Can someone please translate whatever message The Israelis is trying to convey into something that I might better be able to understand, like Yiddish or that Bushman clicking language? As it stands, I have no idea whether The Israelis is seriously claiming that it can succeed without trying or if it’s simply the case that it will go into the trash can of history with a very black and shameful file full of attempts to break down age-old institutions and customs. Before I begin, let me point out that I feel no more personal hatred for it than I might feel for a herd of wild animals or a cluster of poisonous reptiles. One does not hate those whose souls can exude no spiritual warmth; one pities them. Although there are no formal, external validating criteria for The Israelis’s polyloquent claims, I think we can safely say that if they could speak, the birds, snakes, and other creatures who are our Earth brothers and Earth sisters would really say that it has always favored providing a privileged and protected status for the most obtuse knuckle-draggers you’ll ever see. But wait—as they say on late-night television infomercials—there’s more: Untrustworthy chiselers reduce human beings and many other living organisms to engineered products and mere cogs in the social machine. That said, we mustn’t lose sight of who the real enemy is: The Israelis and its loquacious hirelings.

    Sure, we could just sit back and let The Israelis bring widespread death and degradation to millions of human beings across the face of the Earth, but that prospect really grates on people who have any kind of common sense. Clearly, I wonder if The Israelis really believes the things it says. It knows they’re not true, doesn’t it? Here’s the answer, albeit in a somewhat circuitous and roundabout style: Thanks to The Israelis, our national and individual sovereignty is fluttering precariously in the wind. I’ll go further: The Israelis’s dissertations are a logical absurdity, a series of deductions from a premise that has been denied. Speaking of absurdities, The Israelis is extraordinarily brazen. We’ve all known that for a long time. However, its willingness to give lunatics control of the asylum sets a new world record for brazenness. So, sorry for being so long-winded in this letter, but The Israelis should not be allowed to operate heavy machinery, specifically, its ego.

    Anti-Semitism! anti-Semitism!!

    Hijacked?… more like a bunch of treasonous unamericans at the helm. When three hundred members of congress pledge allegiance to a country whose flag has six pointed stars instead of the five pointed stars like my flag, I wonder why they dont move on over to were their hearts apparently lie and leave america to americans.

    It’s now official – no actual shortage of Holocaust survivors:

    Extracts from The Holocaust Industry by Norman G. Finkelstein of the City University of New York, published by Verso in 2000:

    ‘The Israeli Prime Minister’s office recently put the number of “living Holocaust survivors” at nearly a million.’ (page 83)

    ‘If 135,000 former Jewish slave laborers are still alive today, some 600,000 must have survived the war. That’s at least a half-million more than standard estimates.. If Jews only constituted 20% of the surviving camp population and, as the Holocaust industry implies, 600,000 Jewish inmates survived the war, then fully 3 million inmates in total must have survived. By the Holocaust industry’s reckoning, concentration camp conditions couldn’t have been that harsh at all; in fact, one must suppose a remarkably high fertility and remarkably low mortality rate.. If, as the Holocaust industry suggests, many hundreds of thousands of Jews survived, the Final Solution couldn’t have been so efficient after all ­ exactly what Holocaust deniers argue.’ (pp127-8)

    ‘Both my father and my mother were survivors of the Warsaw ghetto and the Nazi concentration camps.. One of my father’s lifelong friends was a former inmate with him in Auschwitz, a seemingly incorruptible left-wing idealist who on principle refused German compensation after the war. Eventually he became a director of the Israeli Holocaust museum, Yad Vashem. Reluctantly and with genuine disappointment, my father finally admitted that even this man had been corrupted by the Holocaust industry, tailoring his beliefs for power and profit. As the rendering of the Holocaust assumed ever more absurd forms, my mother liked to quote (with intentional irony) Henry Ford: “History is bunk.” (p7).

    ‘The Holocaust proved to be the perfect weapon for deflecting criticism of Israel’ (p30).

    ‘Much of the literature on Hitler’s Final Solution is worthless as scholarship. Indeed, the field of Holocaust studies is replete with nonsense, if not sheer fraud.’ (p 55).

    ‘Given the nonsense that is turned out daily by the Holocaust industry, the wonder is that there are so few skeptics’. (p 68).

    ‘Annual Days of Remembrance of the Holocaust are a national event. All 50 states sponsor commemorations, often in state legislative chambers.. Seven major Holocaust museums dot the American landscape. The centerpiece of this memorialization is the United States Holocaust museum in Washington.. (This) museum’s annual budget is $50 million, of which $30 million is federally subsidized.’ (p72). (This is in spite of the fact that, as he points out on page 32, per capita Jewish income in the US is almost double that of non-Jews). ‘With a reelection campaign looming, Jimmy Carter initiated the (US Holocaust Museum) project to placate Jewish contributors and voters, galled by the president’s recognition of the “legitimate rights” of Palestinians.’ (p 73).

    To conclude:
    ‘The Holocaust may yet turn out to be the “greatest robbery in the history of mankind”.. The Holocaust industry has clearly gone berserk.'(p 138-9).
    ‘Through its deployment, one of the world’s most formidable military powers, with a horrendous human rights record, has cast itself as a ‘victim’ state, and the most successful ethnic group in the United States has likewise acquired victim status. Considerable benefits accrue to this specious victimhood ­ in particular, immunity to criticism, however justified. ” (p3).

    Churchill as a ‘denier':

    Statement by Richard Lynn, Professor Emeritus
    University of Ulster, December 5, 2005:

    “I’ve checked out the six volumes of Churchill’s Second World War and the statement is quite correct – not a single mention of Nazi ‘gas chambers,’ a ‘genocide’ of the Jews, or of ‘six million’ Jewish victims of the war.

    Eisenhower’s Crusade in Europe is a book of 559 pages; Churchill’s Second World War totals 4,448 pages; and De Gaulle’s three-volume Mémoires de guerre is 2,054 pages.

    In this mass of writing, which altogether totals 7,061 pages (not including the introductory parts), published from 1948 to 1959, one will find no mention either of Nazi ‘gas chambers,’ a ‘genocide’ of the Jews, or of ‘six million’ Jewish victims of the war.”

  • James says:

    Interesting arithmetic – the incredible numbers

    Have a look at a typical account by one of the seemingly endless number of survivors: Olga Lengyel’s Five Chimneys: a woman survivor’s true story of Auschwitz (Granada/ Ziff-Davis, 1947, 1972).

    According to Lengyel, ‘After June, 1943, the gas chamber was reserved exclusively for Jews and Gypsies.. Three hundred and sixty corpses every half-hour, which was all the time it took to reduce human flesh to ashes, made 720 per hour, or 17,280 corpses per twenty-four hour shift. And the ovens, with murderous efficiency, functioned day and night. However, one must also reckon the death pits, which could destroy another 8,000 cadavers a day. In round numbers, about 24,000 corpses were handled each day. An admirable production record, one that speaks well for German industry.’ (Paperback edition, pp80-81). [No trace of any remains of or in ‘death pits’ has been found.]

    This implies almost 100,000 corpses per four working days, or a million in 40 days, or six million in 240 days (eight months). Notice the bald precision of the figures without any explanation, the utter confidence in the reader’s credulity.

    The blurb on the cover of the book quotes the New York Herald-Tribune: “Passionate, tormenting”. Albert Einstein, the promoter of the US construction of the bombs used at Hiroshima and Nagasaki, is quoted as offering “You have done a real service by letting the ones who are now silent and most forgotten speak.”

    Could this claim be a misprint?

    Kitty Hart, in spite of her name a Jewish survivor born in Poland, fully confirms these figures:

    ‘Working around the clock, the four units together could dispose of about 18,000 bodies every twenty-four hours, while the open pits coped with a further 8,000 in the same period.’ (p 118; Return to Auschwitz – paperback edition by Granada (1981, 1983).

    According to the cover blurb, ‘The subject of the award-winning Yorkshire television documentary of the same name.’ ‘Both engaging and harrowing…an important addition to the growing holocaust literature, very little of which conveys so courageously both the daily torment and the will to survive’ – Martin Gilbert, The Times.

    ‘Sir’ Martin Gilbert, indefatigable Jewish campaigner on behalf of the ‘Holocaust’ and biographer of Winston Churchill, adds to the rich flavour and makes his own numerical claims, certainly not without chutzpah:

    In his book Auschwitz and the Allies (1981) he states

    ‘The deliberate attempt to destroy systematically all of Europe’s Jews was unsuspected in the spring and early summer of 1942: the very period during which it was at its most intense, and during which hundreds of thousands of Jews were being gassed every day at Belzec, Chelmo, Sobibor and Treblinka.’ (p.26). [This statement, first noticed by Professor Robert Faurisson, was then deleted (not corrected) from the next edition – no simple typo, no simple error with omission or spelling or grammar, just a case of being caught red-handed in blatant chutzpah deluxe.]

    If we assume a minimum figure of 200,000 per day, this amounts to say a million a five-day working week, or 6 million in six weeks, and this does not include the still awe-inspiring claims for Auschwitz put forward by Hart and Lengyel with Gilbert’s blessing.

    Elie Wiesel vs Encyclopaedia Britannica

    Wiesel has been one of the most prominent spokesman for the very sizeable group of people known as Holocaust survivors. [According to Norman Finkelstein of the City University of New York in his book The Holocaust Industry published in the year 2000, ‘The Israeli Prime Minister’s office recently put the number of “living Holocaust survivors” at nearly a million’ (p.83)]. Wiesel has chaired the US Holocaust Memorial Council and has been the recipient of a Congressional Gold Medal and Nobel Peace Prize..

    Time Magazine, March 18 1985:

    ‘How had he survived two of the most notorious killing fields [Auschwitz and Buchenwald] of the century? “I will never know” Wiesel says. “I was always weak. I never ate. The slightest wind would turn me over. In Buchenwald they sent 10,000 to their deaths every day. I was always in the last hundred near the gate. They stopped. Why?”

    Compare this with Encyclopaedia Britannica (1993), under ‘Buchenwald’:

    “In World War II it held about 20,000 prisoners.. Although there were no gas chambers, hundreds perished monthly through disease, malnutrition, exhaustion, beatings and executions.”

    What Does Holocaust Denial Really Mean? by Professor Daniel McGowan

    Daniel A. McGowan is the executive director of Deir Yassin Remembered, an organization seeking to build a memorial in Deir Yassin, a former Palestinian-Arab village near Jerusalem, to commemorate a massacre there on April 9, 1948, in which 107 villagers were killed by forces from the Irgun and Lehi paramilitary groups.[1]

    McGowan is professor emeritus at Hobart and William Smith Colleges. He is a columnist for Counterpunch, and the co-author, with Marc Ellis, of Remembering Deir Yassin: The Future of Israel and Palestine (1998). He also runs an organization called Righteous Jews, a play on the phrase righteous gentiles, for Jews willing to defend the rights of the Palestinians.

    http://www.dissidentvoice.org/2009/02/what-does-holocaust-denial-really-mean/

    quote:

    .. Politicians deride Holocaust revisionist papers and conferences as “beyond the pale of international discourse and acceptable behavior.” Non-Zionist Jews who participate in such revisionism, like Rabbi Dovid Weiss of the Neturei Karta, are denounced as “self-haters” and are shunned and spat upon. Even Professor Norman Finkelstein, whose parents were both Holocaust survivors and who wrote the book, The Holocaust Industry, has been branded a Holocaust denier.
    But putting aside the virile hate directed against those who question the veracity of the typical Holocaust narrative, what is it that these people believe and say at the risk of imprisonment and bodily harm? For most Holocaust revisionists or deniers if you prefer, their arguments boil down to three simple contentions:

    1. Hitler’s “Final Solution” was intended to be ethnic cleansing, not extermination.
    2. There were no homicidal gas chambers used by the Third Reich.
    3. There were fewer than 6 million Jews killed of the 55 million who died in WWII.

    Are these revisionist contentions so odious as to cause those who believe them to be reviled, beaten, and imprisoned? More importantly, is it possible that revisionist contentions are true, or even partially true, and that they are despised because they contradict the story of the Holocaust, a story which has been elevated to the level of a religion in hundreds of films, memorials, museums, and docu-dramas?

    Is it sacrilegious to ask, “If Hitler was intent on extermination, how did Elie Wiesel, his father, and two of his sisters survive the worst period of incarceration at Auschwitz?” Wiesel claims that people were thrown alive into burning pits, yet even the Israeli-trained guides at Auschwitz refute this claim.

    Is it really “beyond international discourse” to question the efficacy and the forensic evidence of homicidal gas chambers? If other myths, like making soap from human fat, have been dismissed as Allied war propaganda, why is it “unacceptable behavior” to ask if the gas chamber at Dachau was not reconstructed by the Americans because no other homicidal gas chamber could be found and used as evidence at the Nuremburg trials?

    For more than fifty years Jewish scholars have spent hundreds of millions of dollars to document each Jewish victim of the Nazi Holocaust. The Nazis were German, obsessed with paperwork and recordkeeping. Yet only 3 million names have been collected and many of them died of natural causes. So why is it heresy to doubt that fewer than 6 million Jews were murdered in the Second World War?

    “Holocaust Denial” might be no more eccentric or no more criminal than claiming the earth is flat, except that the Holocaust itself has been used as the sword and shield in the quest to build a Jewish state between the Mediterranean Sea and the Jordan River, where even today over half the population is not Jewish.

    The Holocaust narrative allows Yad Vashem, the finest Holocaust museum in the world, to repeat the mantra of “Never Forget” while it sits on Arab lands stolen from Ein Karem and overlooking the unmarked graves of Palestinians massacred by Jewish terrorists at Deir Yassin. It allows Elie Wiesel to boast of having worked for these same terrorists (as a journalist, not a fighter) while refusing to acknowledge, let alone apologize for, the war crimes his employer committed. It makes Jews the ultimate victim no matter how they dispossess or dehumanize or ethnically cleanse indigenous Palestinian people.

    The Holocaust story eliminates any comparison of Ketziot or Gaza to the concentration camps they indeed are. It memorializes the resistance of Jews in the ghettos of Europe while steadfastly denying any comparison with the resistance of Palestinians in Hebron and throughout the West Bank. It allows claims that this year’s Hanukah Massacre in Gaza, with a kill ratio of 100 to one, was a “proportionate response” to Palestinian resistance to unending occupation…

  • John Hanks says:

    Israel is proof that another Nazi state can emerge with a good dose of paranoia and megalomania (They go together). The United States has been a sucker long enough, just like Stalin was a sucker for Hitler. Israel plans to use our money and armed forces to control the Middle East through Iran. The Twin towers stunt was planned by half Israeli Neocons to get the ball rolling.
    They are sociopaths without conscience and they have been herding us like sheep.

  • Giovanni says:

    Excellent!

    I am happy that the Hustler magazine is fearlessly stating this truth.
    Our country has been a vassal state to Israeli interests.

    It is the Hebrews, double citizens with loyalty to Israel, who control our media, government, international relations and our money to our detriment.

    The Federal Reserve Board is practically a Jewish club and so is the State Department.

    Again, nice work Hustler!

  • Mihail says:

    The Communists are against religion (Christianity), and they seek to destroy religion; yet, when we look deeper into the nature of Communism, we see that it is essential nothing else than a religion (Judaism).”

    (A Program for the Jews and Humanity, Rabbi Harry Waton, p. 138).

    “The Jews welcome this revolution in the Christian world, and the Jews should show an example. It is not an accident that Judaism gave birth to Marxism, and it is not an accident that the Jews readily took up Marxism: all this was in perfect accord with the progress of Judaism and the Jews.”

    (A Program for the Jews and Humanity, by Rabbi Harry Waton, p. 148).

    “We have exterminated the property owners in Russia. We are going to do the same thing in Europe and America.”

    (The Jew, December 1925, Zinobit)
