The Australian

To the Editor:

In the Australian, August 18, 2009, issue, Steven Lewis and Peter Wertheim wrote, "Freedom of Speech should not be freedom to vilify." It has its certain merits; however, when it comes to those who question or deny the Holocaust, the word is grossly overused in denying freedom to those who question. Instead of debating the issue, these people are vilified and character assassinated by instilling and reading into what they believe the questioners had written, as they have done to the statements used by Dr. Toben, which, to the average reader do not sound offensive, racial hatred,
racist or anti-Semitic but logical questions when one considers that a Holocaust did not occur as such, for killing was not limited only to Jews.

Pulling a "Holocaust" out of World War II, is, in itself, a racist act. Any government which requires persons within its jurisdiction to accept a belief, without allowing public questioning or debate as to its validity, is thereby establishing a government religion. Most government constitutions in the "free world" preclude the establishment of a government religion. Portraying Jews as the exclusive victims of the so-called Holocaust has the effect of deifying the Jewish people.


Like all freedoms, the proper limits of free speech are exceeded when it is about causing physical and mental harm....But harm has to be proved according to objective criteria. The questions raised by the
historian/revisionists were never debated, or proved wrong or harmful .simply genuine questions of a academic group seeking clearer facts and scientific debate, which never occurred. The thrust of his material to use the internet to stoke up hatred against Jews as a group, is an unproven statement that has never been clarified or actually been part of an open debate about history, but only used to their means to distort the intent of the questioning the Holocaust did not occur, or that there were no gas chambers at Auschwitz, that Jewish people who believed in the Holocaust were of limited intelligence and that they have exaggerated the number of Jews killed during World War II from what he described as "a Holocaust myth," are reasonable.
In a legal first in Australia , Fredrik Toben, has been jailed for three months following the failure of his appeal for contempt of court rising from
repeatedly ignoring court orders to remove material the court found that breached the racial-hatred provisions of the Racial Discrimination Act .However, the claims as listed are no criminal sanctions under the [Racial Discrimination] act. Toben went to jail for contempt of court...

The Anti-Defamation League, the Jewish Congress, and many other Jewish organizations are "watchdog groups" around the world, seeking to condemn anyone for any statements that can be twisted into a "Hate Crime," turning people into "criminals" and having them imprisoned. History shows that ever since "Jews" were finally dispersed from the land of Milk and Honey, as promised by their God if they would obey his commandments, they have sought revenge in many countries to where they had migrated, and not assimilated.


No Christian, or other public affairs groups have ever made criminal charges against the public vilifying of Jesus Christ by Jews from the time they insisted that the Romans crucify him.. No non-Jewish group has ever taken Menacheim Begin when he made a speech to the Knesset ( the Israeli Parliament) that was published in The New Statesman in June 25, 1982. when he said: "Our race is the master race. We are divine gods on this earth. We are different from the inferior races as they are from insects---other races compare to us as human excrement."

Neither did any group speak out against Golda Meir, who was Israel's Prime Minister in 1969 when she said: "There is no such thing as a Palestinian people. It is not as if we came and threw them out and took there country. They did not exist." Now, for more than 60 years they have been wiping out
the Palestinians, whom she claimed did not exist. (Is not a denial of an ethnic group an act of racism and hate?)


"It is the Jews who originated biblical exegesis (a critical analysis of the Bible), just as they were the first to criticize the forms and doctrines of Christianity...Truly has Darmesteter written: 'The Jew was the apostle of unbelief, and every revolt of mind originated with him.'" (Bernard Lazare, Antisemitism: It's History and Causes, London: Britons Publishing Co., 1967, pp. 149-151).


"Ever since the Jews invented the libel charge of 'anti-Semitism' in the 1880s (The word 'anti- Semitism' was first printed in 1880.' The Jewish Encyclopedia, Vol. I (1901), p. 641), it has been built up with Jewish money, organizations, propaganda, and lies (such as the Holocaust-Holohoax), so that now the word is like snake venom which paralyzes one's
nervous system. Even the mention of the word 'Jew' is shunned unless used in a most favorable and positive context." (Charles A. Weisman, Who is Esau-Edom?, p. 63).

There is no concerted effort by any group to fight free speech vilifying non-Jewish races or ethnic groups by their smears and gross insults. While there is still some freedom of speech, the world needs to counter the Jewish influence that is being inflicted through this "Hate Crime Law" being foisted upon the governments of still independent nations, and superceding the United Nations Resolutions.

Considering that one of the basic principles of the Charter of the United Nations is that of the dignity and equality inherent in all human beings, and that all Member States have pledged themselves to take joint and separate action in co-operation with the Organization to promote and encourage universal respect for and observance of human rights and fundamental freedoms for all, without distinction as to race, sex, language or religion, that the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and the International Covenants on Human Rights proclaim the principles of non-discrimination and equality before the law and the right to freedom of thought, conscience, religion and belief.

Convinced that freedom of religion and belief should also contribute to the attainment of the goals of world peace, social justice and friendship among peoples and to the elimination of ideologies or practices of colonialism and racial discrimination as based on This Declaration on the Elimination of All Forms of Intolerance and of Discrimination Based on Religion or Belief:

Article 1
1. Everyone shall have the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion. This right shall include freedom to have a religion or whatever belief of his choice, and freedom, either individually or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in worship, observance, practice and teaching. 

2. No one shall be subject to coercion which would impair his freedom to have a religion or belief of his choice.

Article 3
Discrimination between human being on the grounds of religion or belief constitutes an affront to human dignity and a disavowal of the principles of the Charter of the United Nations, and shall be condemned as a violation of the human rights and fundamental freedoms proclaimed in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights and enunciated in detail in the International Covenants on Human Rights, and as an obstacle to friendly and peaceful relations between nations.


All this makes no need for the "Hate Crime Law" that has been instigated by the self-serving Jewish organizations, and being foisted on individual nations to supersede their own government laws and the United Nations where no serious action has been taken against their ethnic crimes. Words that are
turned and twisted to meet such a law will, and can only encourage more hatred.
