- IThe Iranians may not even be aware of it, but their
hosting of the recent Holocaust conference may prove to be the most important
milestone in their history since the Islamic Revolution under Khomeini.
Western politicians and media certainly grasped the significance of the
event, with Germany's premier Merkel standing shoulder to shoulder with
prime minister Olmert of the "only-democracy-in-the-middle-east-that-is-not-a-democracy"
- the apartheid state of Israel - and with BBC television news presenting
the bizarre spectacle of discussing, rather than reporting on, an alleged
anti-Semitic conference whilst the images in the background showed traditionally
clad Orthodox Jews happily in attendance.
- When the Islam-hating Western media attacked the prophet
Muhammad under the pretence of freedom of speech, Iran retaliated by testing
the limits of those freedoms with its own holocaust cartoon competition.
In doing so they stumbled across the most jealously guarded dogma of secular
Western society, the Holocult.
- Whereas questioning and reviling religious beliefs is
almost a cornerstone underpinning the mindset of those societies, even
genuine historical research into the subject of a subsection of the 60
million who died in the second world war is prohibited and most certainly
leads to being ostracised in public: The suffering of the Jews may not
be questioned since "if it were to be proven that "The Holocaust"
has, in fact, been stage-managed for political reasons in order to promote
Israeli interests, then the State of Israel and the United States as public
players, and the global Zionist organizations as private lobbying entities
would have to accept their share of responsibility for the damage, suffering
and hardship they have wrought upon the Middle East and the world and,
accordingly, they should be held accountable."
- The latter is a quote from communiqué no. 16 of
Argentina's growing opposition movement MSRA or Argentine Second Republic
Movement, who intend to host a Holocaust conference of their own in order
to examine how the Holocaust has been used propagandistically for political
ends following the end of World War II.
- Rather than a one-off event, the Tehran conference is
the beginning of the unravelling of the special status that Israel and
Zionist Jews enjoy in the world justified by their special suffering at
the hands of the Germans. The issue is not whether Jews suffered during
World War II but that this suffering has been exploited since, in what
Finkelstein called the "Holocaust Industry".
- For the last half century, only Jews and retired politicians,
the latter in their memoirs, were permitted to voice criticism of Israel
and the Zionist lobby. Meanwhile, with some historical distance, many more
people are demanding to have a say in the matter, although others, like
the Muslim American Society (MAS) Freedom Foundation, feel the need to
curry favour by stating "True Muslims must never deny the Holocaust"
and in the words of Ibrahim Ramey, the Director of their Human and Civil
Rights Division: "The evidence of this crime, and the horrible magnitude
of this killing, is irrefutable. From sources as varied as Nazi war records,
film documentation, and most importantly, the testimony of survivors and
witnesses, we know that the mass murder of European Jews was, indeed, the
single greatest crime of genocide in the twentieth century." - whereas
the communiqué from Argentina questions why, if World War II cost
more than 60 million lives in Europe and Asia, mankind's attention is almost
solely focused on the suffering of 10% of those victims and millions have
been added since then "including almost 2 million Iraqis killed by
the Bush Family and their Associates since the First Gulf War in 1991 to
- Recognising that the label of unique suffering can no
longer be worn unchallenged, researchers who questioned certain aspects
of the official holocaust story were convicted in political show trials
as a warning to others: in France Robert Faurisson or Roger Garaudy, the
latter for his substantive book The Founding Myths of Modern Israel, in
Austria David Irving, in Australia Fredrick Toeben, in Germany Germar Rudolf
and Ernst Zundel. But with Iran state-sponsoring a conference on the subject
and inviting eminent Rabbis to attend, all this effort has come to naught.
The topic will not go away and awkward questions are going to be asked.
- As a gentile European I may not ask these questions without
penalty, but Rabbi Moishe Arye Friedman, chief Rabbi of the Orthodox anti-Zionist
Jewish Community in Vienna, Austria, did not prostrate before the God of
Zion and did not hesitate to attend the Tehran conference decried by the
Muslim American Society as immoral and motivated by racial hatred. In his
address to the conference he stated that the founder of the Zionism, Theodor
Herzl, already spoke in his first diaries of a number of six million Jews
who were allegedly threatened in Europe and that, according to Herzl, the
so-called Jewish state would only have a chance if there was a disaster
for these six million European Jews, as well as that the Bolshevists and
the British government already used the six million figure in their war
propaganda against Germany during the first world war. He further talked
about the collaboration between the Nazis and the Zionists, and added that
he was sure that the last word about the real or actual number of the victims
had not yet been spoken, mentioning that in 1990 the number originally
specified of four million victims of Auschwitz had been reduced to approximately
900,000 to 1.1 million whilst the six million figure remained unchallenged.
- Now to be consistent, Austrian prosecutors would have
to charge the Vienna Chief Rabbi with Holocaust denial, but such a trial
would further dent the credibility of the laws protecting the official
version of events as well as that of the Shoah story itself, repeatedly
embellished by Hollywood productions. It is, therefore, highly unlikely,
that the Rabbi will be dragged before a court to answer on charges of anti-Semitism.
- Meanwhile there are two strands to the unofficial debate
about the holocaust: on the one hand historians demand that this episode
of history must not be barred from proper scientific scrutiny in order
to separate myth from reality. Guiseppe Furioso, for example, asks why
there is no documentary evidence of the gassings nor any mention of it
in Churchill's memoirs or by any other political figures of the time.
- The other, and more potent, strand is the questioning
of the Pax Americana or victor's justice established with the Nuremberg
Trials and the propagandistic exploitation of Jewish suffering for imperial
ends. Just as president Ahmedinejad of Iran convincingly argues that if
the Germans tried to exterminate the Jews then they should be responsible
for resettling them in their own country rather than making the Palestinians
pay the price, others, like the Argentineans, point out that powers like
Israel who stole Palestinian land and the United States of America who
stole Native Indian land have no moral authority to play world policemen
in the name of the International Community.
- The tide is changing and the Argentinean press release
points to the fact that its effect is not lost on the pro-Zionist camp:
"Interestingly", it says, "the Zionist pro-Israeli mainstream
media implicitly admits that any such investigation poses a grave danger
- Amidst all the insults and threats from such newspapers
like the Los Angeles Times, in their 13-Dec-06 issue however, they ran
an article called Holocaust denial can be dangerous" which concludes
by saying that, "...attacking the legitimacy of the Holocaust allows...
(attacking) the legitimacy o Israel, which was created by the United Nations
as a result of the Holocaust. If the first act didn't happen, then the
second act wasn't necessary."
- In a way this let the cat out of the bag. Israel's days
are numbered if the last great "religious" taboo of not discussing
the true facts and dimensions of the holocaust is broken, and with the
dollar in accelerating decline and US marines taking a beating in Iraq,
Iran - threatened with a pre-emptive strike by the United States for alleged
nuclear weapons of mass destruction - seems to have successfully managed
to cut the Achilles heel of the current Anglo-Zionist world order.
