Who is Mahmoud Abbas?
Fredrick Töben comments on the following item
25 July 2003
Imagine, here is a man defending Israel's terrorism against the Palestinians, then complains
about Mahmoud Abbas because Abbas took the typical 'left-wing' position against Zionism,
a somewhat dated dichotomy.
Further, what riles this fellow, Joseph Farah, is the fact that Abbas refuses to accept the
obligatory 'Holocaust' story, something even the single judge in my 17 September 2002
Federal Court of Australia judgment refused to get involved in. From memory
I think she said that the trial was not about whether the 'Holocaust' happened or
not, but rather whether the material complained of could offend in all probability.
This point is not new because years ago Professor Arthur Butz stated that any kind of
'Holocaust' material coming from Revisionists would indeed be offensive, and a law that
is specifically designed to catch such mindset is patently unjust, and Butz concluded that we
are all guilty of upsetting people with our work.
That's the nature of the whole intellectual exercise where under normal circumstances
truth would protect anyone from legal consequences, and where historical matters
are not the subject of court actions. But we are living in times that are out of joint!
In our Australian pioneer work against Zionist-Jewish oppression, it cost the Zionist $150 000+
each to place a gag order on Mrs Olga Scully and me. We must be saying something right,
especially when telling the truth, and searching for the truth, will not protect us from such
action. All very sad for Australia's judicial system that such a judgment has been made.
The judges involved are themselves enslaved, and I have a suspicion that they know it, in
fact perhaps in part enjoy it. After all, looking at their own blind spots is not an
enterprise some judges indulge in freely.
Joseph Farah's comment about 'dialectic' is elementary because he does not specify
whether he is using the Hegelian or the perverted Marxist dialectic method.
He may protest all he likes but the Hegelian dialectic is a universal that cannot
be discussed away!
Who is Mahmoud Abbas?

To his great credit, President Bush has not made one mistake his predecessor made repeatedly
inviting the father of modern-day terrorism, Yasser Arafat, to the White House.
But President Bush is doing the next worst thing this week inviting Arafat's puppet,
Mahmoud Abbas, to meet with him in Washington.
Abbas, or Abu Mazen as he is also known, is perceived by some, including the
president, as a "moderate" hope for peace.
I do not agree with this assessment. In fact, Abbas is a fraud. Abbas is evil in his own
right. Abbas is a deceiver. Abbas is an anti-Semite and a hater. And I can prove it.
Many have heard the story of how Abbas, as a doctoral candidate at Moscow's
Oriental College in 1982, wrote a thesis suggesting far fewer than 6 million Jews
were killed in the Holocaust. But, Abbas did much more than that. He actually
accused the Jews of conspiring with Adolf Hitler to annihilate European Jewry.
He accused the Jews of deliberately inflating the numbers of those killed in
concentration camps to pave the way for a Jewish state. He may have been one
of the first to equate Zionism with Nazism.
"The Zionist movement's stake in inflating the number of murdered in the war was
aimed at ensuring great gains," he wrote, adding that "this led to confirm the number
[6 million] to establish it in world opinion, and, by so doing, to arouse more pangs
of conscience and sympathy for Zionism in general."
In the version of his doctoral paper later published under the title, "The Other Side:
The Secret Relationship Between Nazism and the Zionist Movement," Abbas denied
the German use of gas chambers and suggested the total number of Jews killed was
fewer than 1 million.
But perhaps the most horrifying and revolting charge by Abbas is that Zionists were
complicit with the Nazis in the murder of Jews.
"The Zionist movement led a broad campaign of incitement against the Jews living
under Nazi rule, in order to arouse the government's hatred of them, to fuel vengeance
against them, and to expand the mass extermination," Abbas wrote.
Abbas has danced around this treatise for many years. He has attempted to put it in
perspective. He has tried to explain what he really meant when he denied 6 million
Jews were murdered. But he has never publicly retracted his accusation that Zionists
collaborated with the Nazis in the extermination of Jews.
Despite this incredible charge, Abbas still enjoys the reputation of a "moderate." He
still enjoys the reputation of a "pragmatist." He still enjoys the reputation of a "statesman"
perhaps even an indispensable statesman.
Nothing could be further from the truth. Abbas was one of the principal planners of
the Munich Olympics terrorist attack. He was the guy who wrote the checks and
embraced the operatives as they headed off to one of the most sensational terrorist
attacks of its time in 1972. More recently he said the "intifada" the violent uprising
by Arabs against Israel that has raged since the fall of 2000 "must continue." He has
never renounced armed struggle as a legitimate means of achieving his precious
In the Soviet school in which he was educated, Abbas served a useful purpose. It's
called the dialectic.
What's the dialectic? An idea or event generates its opposite, leading to a
reconciliation of opposites, or a synthesis. That is how progress is achieved
through conflict, whether it's real conflict or phony conflict manufactured by
two or more conspirators.
When you see a schism develop between Arafat and Hamas, or Arafat and
Abbas, understand what is at work. There is no schism. It's not real. They are
play-acting. They are reading off the same page. It's the dialectic at work.
The fix is in.
Abbas is not a champion of peace. He is a master of artful conflict.
President Bush's advisers do not serve him well if they have not
explained this simple con game.
