On 2nd May 2008 I, Fredrick Töben, of Wattle Park, in the State of South Australia, director of Adelaide Institute, say on oath:

1. I am the above Respondent in these proceedings and make reference to the Notice of Motion of 2 January 2008, the Amended Notice of Motion of 19 February 2008, to my Affidavits of 17 and 31 January, 19 February and 30 April 2008 wherein I contest the charges made against me in the Applicant’s originating Notice of Motion set down for 5 December 2006 and re-issued as Amended Statement of Charge/Amended Notice of Motion of 28 April 2006.

2. The Apology on 27 November 2007 was given by me in good faith, something that was abused by Applicant and his associates. As stated in Affidavit, 30 April 2008, I have no problem in deleting alleged offensive material.

3. I reject that I have been in contempt of court since the Orders were handed down on 17 September 2002 and will contest each of the allegations made against me, including those already deleted as per consent orders.

4. The following articles are an example of the broad range of topics covered within one email, most could be considered to be dealing with the concept “Holocaust” because it is so all-pervasive and defies a single definition. For example, it also applies to the Dresden Holocaust:

4.1. Current threats stressed on Shoah Day

As Israel marked the start of Holocaust Remembrance Day under the shadow of Iran's nuclear program, President Shimon Peres said Wednesday that the world must act against global threats in order to ensure that the Holocaust never happens again.

"It is forbidden in history to be late," Peres said at the official state ceremony at Yad Vashem marking the opening of Holocaust Remembrance Day, noting that the world could have stopped Adolph Hitler had it acted in time. In his address, Peres urged state leaders to stop the eruption of global war before it began, in what aides said was a reference to Iran's nuclear program. "We will ask ourselves every morning what we must do in order that what was will never return again," Peres said.

The country's elder statesman said that until this very day he could not grasp how the Holocaust - where one third of the Jewish people was wiped out - could have happened, and how other nations stood silently by, or worse, assisted in the mass murder, adding that if Hitler had succeeded in building nuclear weapons, the world could have been destroyed.

Prime Minister Ehud Olmert blasted Holocaust deniers for trying to strip the legitimacy of the creation of the State Israel by denying the existence of the Holocaust, and said that no force in the world was stronger than the Israeli spirit. "Even 60 years later, who would believe that the ugly head of Jew hatred and Israel hatred is rearing all over the world; still inciting, poisoning and enticing."

He noted that the Holocaust only emphasized the need for the establishment of the State of Israel, which belatedly rose out of the ashes of the Holocaust. "There is no force in the world stronger than the spirit of this people, that emerged from the abyss of annihilation to the summits of creation, success, building and might of the State of Israel," Olmert said.

On Thursday, a two-minute siren will sound at 10 a.m. at the start of a series of day-long ceremonies throughout the nation. The official state wreath-laying ceremony will take place just after the siren is sounded Thursday at the Warsaw Ghetto uprising memorial at Yad Vashem in the presence of the prime minister and other VIPs. The "Unto Every Person There is a Name" ceremony will follow - in which Holocaust victims' names are read out - at both the Hall of Remembrance at Yad Vashem and the Knesset


4.2. How a non-Jew living in Israel came to understand the Holocaust

By Michalis Firillas, Last update - 10:22 01/05/2000


I did not always understand the enormity of the crime. It has been a gradual understanding, over the three decades of connection with the Jewish people, paralleling my development from childhood to adulthood. The things a child sees are different from what an adult chooses to notice - they are less political.

I had heard of the Holocaust for the first time when I was seven. At that time I heard adults talking of a very curious, terrifying phenomenon: soap made of humans. I was too scared to ask for details, but I heard the word Jews, and Hitler was mentioned too, both alien words to me.

But I still had not made the connection between Jews and the Holocaust. I had heard the word used to describe terrible results of battle, of scorched corpses of national heroes. For a young Greek child the word was one of horror, of absolute catastrophe and brilliant, destructive fires. Then in early 1978 I read in a magazine of an attack on a bus, in which many Jews were killed in a huge blaze. It was described in the article as a "holocaust." I was beginning to put together a picture of Jews, victims, fire.

Our first home in Israel was in the northern town of Nahariya. On the road to town stood a large building, a museum, where I was told 'human soap' was housed. For years, every time I passed by that building, I tried not to think about it. And when they talked about the Holocaust in school, I tried not to make the connection to that building. Instead I tried to focus on the name of the kibbutz where the museum was kept - and we were encouraged to think of its meaning: Lohamei HaGetaot (Ghetto Fighters). Somehow it made the horrors I imagined - because I still did not really know - seem acceptable. I rationalized it had been a battle, a war, full of glory and the death of heroes.

Over the years the narrative of heroism, victimhood, suffering and liberation, were not readily distinguishable to me. The order and proximity in which three days of commemoration fall, create a sense of historical order: Holocaust memorial is followed a week later by the memorial for the fallen soldiers of Israel, and immediately after by Independence Day celebrations. It is hard to miss the progression: we were persecuted for being Jews; we shed much blood to gain our independence; now we have a Jewish state. At a much later date, I also came to see an ominous warning in the progression: our lesson is that we will never again allow another Holocaust on our people - be warned.

The real change for me, the day I began to put it all together - the horror, the enormity, the narratives, the inhumanity and the perseverance - happened when I went to the store one day. The owner, a nice little old man who looked a bit like Yoda - Mr. Katz was his name - normally had long sleeved shirts on. One summer day even he succumbed to the heat wave. A barely discernible smudge on his arm, somewhere in the wrinkled old skin, stood out as he reached out to give me change. Mesmerized I stared and realized it was a number.

To me, the number came to symbolize the uniqueness of the Holocaust. It was no longer just genocide; it was something else, something for which I am still short of words. In retrospect I think that the number on the arm of Mr. Katz shocked me because it made him definitively unheroic. It stripped him of his identity, of his individualism as a human being. It encapsulated everything that organized extermination was about. The sort of killing that targets people without pathos, without feeling and afterthought: a mechanical, calculated massacre, with the kind of distance between victim and perpetrator that makes it seem almost banal.

Over the years I have had much criticism for the State of Israel. But, as time passed and I came to understand the Holocaust better, the more I realized that there are many out there who still do not fathom its horror, its uniqueness and its significance. This only strengthened my conviction in the need for a Jewish State. Indeed, I was not always a Zionist. But vitriol, hatred and ignorance of the sort uttered regularly by the likes of Iran's President, Hezbollah's leader and Hamas, have made me one. Their raw anti-Semitism, and its echoes around the world have led me to draw a red line: I can no longer imagine continued Jewish existence without the State of Israel.

I will continue criticizing Israel where I think it deserves it. And I will continue challenging the victorious, linear narratives of Jewish fanatics. The Holocaust does not make Jews or Israel infallible. Nor did the Holocaust alone make Israel - that is post-colonial gibberish of hateful extremists. But so long as there are those out there dreaming of another Holocaust, I know whose side I am on.

4.3. There are no Holocaust survivors

By Yehudit Winkler

Most of the friends of my 95-year-old mother are no longer with us. With her insights, her power of survival, her talent for suppression and her uncanny ability to be here and to live only with the good times that preceded what she calls "then," I would not be surprised if the rest of her life, as she approaches the goal of great old age, is surprising.
Like most of her friends who were cataloged in Israel as survivors, remnants, people from the camps and ghettos and forced laborers who saved themselves, to the end of their days they were not saved.

The physical, and mainly the emotional wounds, their shattered lives, their world that had been destroyed, their dear ones who were torn away from them forever, turned them into shadows who walked and walk among us in disguise. And we, because of our inability to internalize the dimensions of the horror, and perhaps for fear of having to share the burden, find it difficult to make room in our hearts for genuine compassion.

There is a great degree of pretense on Holocaust Martyrs' and Heroes' Remembrance Day. Not because there is no intention of remembering it, but because a separation is made between the Holocaust as a general concept for the horror, and the people themselves: my mother, her friends, even the survivors who are forced to humiliate themselves in the face of the insensitivity of the governments and leaders of Israel, in order to merit, for example, crumbs of financial assistance.

They are humiliated not only because their voice has faded and their elbows are weak, but because in the roots of the Israeli consciousness, their place is missing because they scratch the false collective image of the new Israel.

In the 60 years since the establishment of the State, and the 63 years since the end of World War II, the collective consciousness has not understood that the destruction of European Jewry is one of the sources of strength for the existence of a Jewish state, and that those who were rescued from the inferno carry the resurrection on their backs. They are giants who are worthy of admiration and the true heroes of the 20th century.

Had they been perceived as such in the first place, we would not have been witness to fathers and mothers who concealed the history of the dark days from their offspring, and there would have been no need decades later to conduct special campaigns in order to take testimony from those who were still alive.

Their imprint is almost absent from the Israeli cultural legacy as well. Israeli dramaturgy, instead of being a leader in giving expression to the unparalleled human and collective tragedy, ignores it for the most part. As in a synchronized chord - literature, cinema, music and dance do the same. This is no coincidence. We grew up on the myth of power, whereas the Holocaust, due to a distorted perception of the founding fathers, was cataloged as weakness. "Like lambs to the slaughter." Only after several decades had passed, under pressure from the ghetto fighters, was any effort made to amend the concepts, and "heroism" was added to "Holocaust."

The speeches that will be delivered as they are every year have become loathsome. Not because they are not true, but because there is no clear connection between the literal truth and the truth of life; and therefore they are infuriating.

There is a need to admit that those who saved themselves from there did not really get a genuine embrace here. They walked among us, and the handful who remain still walk among us, by dint of existential inertia. Because there are no real Holocaust survivors.


4.4. Archive of Nazi Documents Finally Opens Its Doors to the Public


A woman standing between two floor-to-ceiling bookshelves filled with paper documents.

An archive storing files on those persecuted and killed by the Nazis officially opened in the German town of Bad Arolsen on Wednesday, April 30.

The card index, which contains about 47 million documents containing the names of most concentration camp inmates, forced-labour victims and refugees left homeless after World War II, had been the subject of an intense debate. Jewish groups had been pressing for open access to the collection, a storehouse of captured documents that began being assembled in 1946.

"Most of the documents were drawn up by the Nazis themselves," said Reto Meister, the Swiss Red Cross official now in charge of the files. "We have documents here about a horrifyingly wide range of victims: Jews and Christians, Eastern and Western Europeans, Germans and non-Germans, men and women. There's not one country where victims did not come from."

Opening the archive

Previously, viewing the archive was limited only to survivors and close relations of the dead. All of that changed last year, when the members of the 11-nation governing commission of the International Tracing Service of the International Committee of the Red Cross agreed to provide greater access to the archives, ending a five-decade long debate over the victims' rights to privacy.

Earlier this year, the archive opened to historians. Wednesday's opening allows nearly anyone to search inside the archives, an especially important event for those friends and family members still searching for those unaccounted for after the war.

Meister also sees the files as the most potent answer to Holocaust deniers: "Anyone who wants to minimize the Holocaust should come here. We'll show him documents by the million."

The "overwhelming scale" of the card index, Meister said, was more persuasive than any debate.

Creating a digital archive in three capitals

The ITS has also made digital copies of much of the archives and exported them to Yad Vashem Memorial in Jerusalem, the US Holocaust Memorial Museum in Washington and the National Institute of Remembrance in Warsaw. The images include both sides of 9 million incarceration documents, 21 million cards from its main name index and 3.5 million papers in its displaced persons index.

Another block of documents relating to forced labour will follow in the summer, bringing scanning to 70 percent of the paper documents. The entire archival holdings are expected to be digitized by 2011 so that it can be mirrored in all three capitals.

4.5. Hamas: Jews planned Holocaust

Haviv Rettig , THE JERUSALEM POST, Apr. 30, 2008

Jewish leaders concocted the mass murder of handicapped Jews in order to keep from having to support them, and this murder is what the Jews term "the Holocaust," according to a documentary special that aired on April 18 on Hamas's Al Aqsa television station.

Palestinian Media Watch located and translated the contents of the footage, which it uploaded to YouTube under the headline "Hamas: Jews planned Holocaust."

According to the documentary's narrator, Israel's first prime minister David Ben Gurion decided that Jewish "disabled and handicapped are a burden to the state," after which "the Satanic Jews" - the film cuts to a picture of a hassidic Jew - "thought up an evil plot to be rid of the burden of disabled and handicapped" - the film then cuts to piles of emaciated corpses - "in twisted criminal ways."

"This is official Hamas TV," explained PMW director Itamar Marcus. "It's owned and totally controlled by the Hamas leadership in Gaza, and it goes out by satellite to the whole Arab-speaking world."

The program dealt primarily with the Holocaust, but included comparisons to the Palestinian situation, calling the massacres in the Sabra and Shatila refugee camps a "holocaust" and blaming Israel for a "Palestinian holocaust."

"They [the Jews] were the first to invent the methods of evil and oppression," explains the documentary's narrator, cutting to scenes of Golda Meir, Moshe Dayan and Ben Gurion.

The film claimed Jewish leaders blamed the Nazis for their own massacre of Jews "so the Jews would seem persecuted and try to benefit from international sympathy."

The film offers an "expert" - Amin Dabur, head of the "Center for Strategic Research" - who explains that "the Israeli Holocaust, the whole thing was a joke and part of the perfect show that Ben Gurion put on."

There is some tension in the film between blaming the Jews for the massacre of Jews, and denying the massacre took place. According to Dabur, Ben Gurion was interested in sending "strong and energetic youth [for Israel], while all the rest - the disabled, the handicapped, and people with special needs, they were sent [to die] - if it can be proven historically" - a reference to a claim heard often on Hamas television, from Iranian leaders and elsewhere in the Muslim world that the Holocaust has yet to be proven historically.

Continues Dabur: "They were sent [by the Jews to die] so there would be a Holocaust, so Israel could 'play' it for world sympathy."


4.6. Adolf Hitler lives on but only as absolute evil - Horst Mahler, et al, attempts to correct that morally/intellectually twisted image.

View Horst Mahler’s explanation of why the Jewish Holocaust-Shoah belief is killing German minds –

Sorry, in German only -



ONE-MAN RIGHT-WING CIRCUS ACT, German Sentenced to 10 Months for Hitler Greeting, SPIEGEL ONLINE,;/international/germany/c-676/r-4707/k-7149/p-druckversion/a-550430/be-PB64-aW50ZXJuYXRpb25hbC9hcnRpa2Vs/szwprofil-1182?r=http%3A// szwprofil-1182 ?d=5691104/29/2008 12:22 PM,

One of Germany's most visible far-right extremists has been sentenced to 10 months in jail for greeting a Jewish interviewer with "Heil Hitler." A judge called Horst Mahler "utterly incorrigible" after he denied the Holocaust, again, in open court.

Back in the slammer.







Horst Mahler

Back in the slammer.

A regional court in Erding, outside of Munich, found that Horst Mahler had broken the law when he greeted journalist Michel Friedman with the words, "Heil Hitler, Herr Friedman."

Friedman, who had previously served as the vice president of the Central Council of Jews in Germany, met Mahler in an airport hotel in October 2007 to speak with him for the German edition of Vanity Fair. A month later the magazine ran the conversation uncut, with a pre-emptive apology: "We're publishing this interview because we believe it to be an unparalleled exposé of German right-wing ideology -- even if (Mahler) says things that are illegal in Germany: (He) denies the Holocaust and uses a Hitler greeting."

Mahler began the interview with, "Heil Hitler, Herr Friedman." Friedman later filed a police report.

Mahler defended himself during the trial, denied the Holocaust again in open court on Monday and was ordered out of the room by the judge -- who called him "utterly incorrigible."

Nazi symbols, praise of Hitler and denial of the Holocaust are "anti-constitutional" in Germany and therefore against the law. But breaking these laws is nothing new for Mahler. When he started a jail sentence for a similar crime in 2006, he gave a stiff-armed salute just outside the gate. He had just finished that sentence last August when he met Friedman in October.

A Trapeze-Swing to the Right

Both men have high profiles. Friedman is a 52-year-old TV personality who stepped down as vice president of the Central Council of Jews in 2003 after a scandal involding drugs and prostitutes. His parents were saved from Auschwitz by German businessman Oskar Schindler.

Mahler is a 72-year-old lawyer with who has a long history of offending German sensibilities. During the 1970s he co-founded the far-left Red Army Faction, as a communist radical opposed to West Germany's so-called "Fascist state." He spent 14 years in jail for his involvement in various RAF-related crimes. Later he swung to the far right, and for a while, after 2000, served as a lawyer for the neo-Nazi National Democratic Party of Germany (NPD).

Charges against Mahler include sedition, using gestures of an anti-constitutional organization and criminal insult. Holocaust denial in Germany falls under the crime of sedition, or Volksverhetzung, because it's regarded as an incitement against Jews as an ethnic group.

During the interview he said, among other things: "Hitler was the liberator of the German people. He is demonized as the liberator of Satan." His statements roused criticism nationwide, and a lawsuit was lodged against Vanity Fair last November by a Holocaust survivor for providing Mahler with a platform for his extremist views.

4.8. Töben’s quick sound bite to this item:

  4.8.1. This is an embodiment of the Übermensch idea of National Socialism’s Beauty.

4.8.2. It does not mean any kind of superiority but rather pushing oneself to the obvious innate human limits.

4.8.3. All humans participate in life-giving processes and such an act is a celebration of the Godliness within all of us.

4.8.4. Mind and body are in harmony and with that of another human being.

4.8.5. A pity some Jews, Christians and Muslims shy away from celebrating ideals such as Beauty and Harmony.


4.9. They always talk about the Jewish "sense of humour"....

That's how it's done - claim to be shocked and disgusted, say you’re feeling hurt and call out: HATE SPEECH!

Who or what is the WJC? “The World Jewish Congress is the international organization representing Jewish communities in over 80 countries around the world. The WJC serves as the diplomatic arm of the Jewish people to governments and international organizations.”

Wow, are we to be impressed by that? If the WJC cannot cope with things National Socialist, then that’s their bad luck and its members will have to receive counselling sessions in TOLERANCE!



World Jewish Congress Shocked About Continued Sale of 'I Love Hitler' T-Shirts on Amazon.Com


Contact: Michael Thaidigsmann of World Jewish Congress (Brussels Office), +32 2 552 09 24 or Mob: +32 485 869 584,  

Internet retailer continues to sell pro-Hitler t-shirts for children despite protests

BRUSSELS and NEW YORK, April 24 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The World Jewish Congress (WJC) strongly criticized the continued sale by the leading US online retailer of T-shirts praising Nazi dictator Adolf Hitler. I love Hitler shirts for children and women were still being sold on the website as of Thursday, 24 April 2008, 16:00 GMT. In January 2008, Amazon had pledged to remove offensive shirts following an article in the Czech weekly Tyden.

We are shocked and disgusted that is seemingly unwilling to stop the sale of such items, in spite of protests earlier this year. Not only is the slogan in bad taste, but to target children with clothes emblazoned with pro-Nazi slogans is particularly despicable, the WJCs Secretary-General Michael Schneider said. Companies have a responsibility. To make money with items glorifying the Nazis sets a very bad example. A lack of sensibility will ultimately do them serious damage as customers will rightly go and shop elsewhere.

Schneider called on Amazon to remove the entire collection of shirts from its website and to end its business relationship with the manufacturer of the line, Direct Collection to avoid any repetition of this or similar cases in the future. He added that the dramatic rise in hate speech via the internet could only be contained if all stakeholders in society, including businesses, took their responsibilities seriously. Lets hope Amazon heeds the call this time, said Schneider.

The WJC Secretary-General also called on internet operators to curb the dissemination of anti-Semitic material. When you see how much neo-Nazi and anti-Semitic material comes up through search engines such Google or on video platforms such as Youtube you are shocked, Schneider said. However, he expressed hope that companies will enter into dialogue on this important issue before things get worse.

The World Jewish Congress is the international organization representing Jewish communities in over 80 countries around the world. The WJC serves as the diplomatic arm of the Jewish people to governments and international organizations.

4.10. Hitler's hatred of Jews

BOOK REVIEW A doctor's tale

In '1940,' Jay Neugeboren examines the roots of Hitler's hatred of Jews with a story about the family physician, who was Jewish.

Reviewed by Tim Rutten, Los Angeles Times Staff Writer , April 30, 2008

Any attempt to incorporate Adolf Hitler into a work of fiction is inherently perilous. The historical, political and moral stakes simply are too high to admit even the small authorial misstep.

In "1940" -- his first novel in 20 years -- Jay Neugeboren traverses the Hitlerian tightrope with all the skill and formal daring that have made him one of our most honored writers of literary fiction and masterful nonfiction. This new book is, at once, a beautifully realized work of imagined history, a rich and varied character study and a subtly layered novel of ideas, all wrapped in a propulsively readable story.

Neugeboren builds his narrative around an actual historical figure from the periphery of Hitler's life -- Eduard Bloch, the Jewish doctor who was the Hitler family physician when the future dictator was growing up in the Austrian city of Linz. Bloch not only treated the young Adolf for a variety of boyhood ailments but also cared for his beloved mother, Klara, when she fell ill with breast cancer. Her last days were intensely painful, but Bloch apparently treated her with great care, providing daily pain medication and accepting little or no payment from the Hitler family, which had fallen on hard times.

After Klara's death, Adolf expressed his eternal gratitude to Bloch, first in person, then in hand-drawn cards sent from Vienna, where he failed as an art student. After the Anschluss, when Hitler made a triumphant return to Linz, he reportedly inquired about Bloch's welfare and declared him, "an Edeljude-- a noble Jew. If all Jews were like him, there would be no Jewish question." When the rest of the city's Jewish population was driven from their homes, Bloch remained under Gestapo protection, and though he no longer was allowed to treat gentile patients, he received the same food and clothing ration cards as other Germans.

Ultimately, his departure to the U.S. was personally approved by Hitler, and Bloch -- unlike other Jewish refugees -- was allowed to sell his house for a large sum and to take the money with him into exile.

He was 68 when he settled in the Bronx in 1940, and he lived there until his death five years later. In 1941 and 1943, Bloch was interviewed by the Office of Strategic Services for material incorporated into a psychological profile of Hitler. The doctor also wrote a controversially "positive" memoir of the young Hitler for Collier's Weekly, one in which he described him as quiet and well-mannered -- if a little melancholy -- and extraordinarily devoted to his mother.

Fact-based fiction

In "1940," Bloch speaks in the first-person through journal entries, many of those dealing with Hitler borrowed verbatim by Neugeboren from the OSS interviews. The story's other protagonist is Elisabeth Rofman, a skilled medical illustrator at Johns Hopkins whose father lives near Bloch in the Bronx and whose story is told in the third person. When Elisabeth returns home to visit her father and cook him a Shabbos dinner, he is missing. Bloch is soon involved in the hunt for the missing man, as is Rofman's ex-husband, a wealthy and unctuously observant physician, whose ostentatious religiosity contrasts with Bloch's assimilated German Judaism and Elisabeth's skeptical irreverence.

Boiling up between Rofman and her ex-husband is the novel's other major subplot -- what to do about their troubled son Daniel, who is confined to a Maryland "home" (read: mental hospital). The young man has begun to manifest what his doctors call inappropriate sexual aggressiveness. As a consequence, they wish to castrate him, and his father already has consented. Elisabeth refuses to give permission, and when Daniel escapes from the hospital, helps him find refuge with Bloch.

Skilled physician that the refugee is, he finds the young man troubled and eccentric, but hardly the schizophrenic his American doctors have diagnosed. Their desire to castrate him over an ambiguous sexual incident is a sobering reminder that eugenically motivated surgeries were as popular in the United States in that era as they were in Nazi Germany. The Germans simply were better at mobilizing state power to work their evil. In any event, the threat hanging over Daniel prods Bloch into sobering reflections on the ethics of medical collaboration with the state.

Neugeboren is marvelous at capturing the interplay between Rofman and her ex-husband, as well as between Bloch and Daniel. So too he gently evokes the affection that grows between Elisabeth and the much older refugee doctor. There's also a marvelous evocation of that rich melancholy that settled over the lives of the Central European, particularly German, Jewish exiles who fled Europe for the United States at the onset of World War II. Several times Neugeboren has Elisabeth, who speaks German, express her sympathy to Bloch over the loss of his beloved language in daily life. For his part, he remains stunned that his people -- so steeped in German culture -- have been rejected by that country's government.

Jews and Germans

Bloch, who was related to Franz Kafka, writes that Kafka "made the finer point: that the more Jews entered fully into German society -- the more we resembled them -- the more did they resent us. In specific, what Kafka, who, had he lived, would be more than a decade younger than I, wrote of our commonalities was this -- that we were, each of our peoples, ambitious, able, diligent, and thoroughly hated by others -- in his words: pariahs to the world.

"Kafka wrote this many years before Hitler came to power, when, as Kafka noted, other nations feared, admired, envied and ridiculed Germans much as they feared, admired, envied and ridiculed Jews, while it was only we Jews who actually seemed to love the Germans."

Both peoples, Bloch muses, "share a marked and common respect for the printed word -- we are The People of the Book, they The People of Poetry and Thought."

At one point, Bloch even wonders if it might be worth writing Hitler to remind him of their former connection -- it might prompt him to recall how vital the Jewish contribution to German culture had been and could be. History, however, intervenes to shatter that illusion.

Neugeboren's Bloch also reacts forcefully against a notion that some psychoanalysts (and historians under their influence) have advanced -- namely, that the origins of Hitler's murderous anti-Semitism lay in his resentment against the Jewish doctor who had failed to save the mother he loved above all other men and women. It's a reductionist notion that simply ignores history's evidence. If Hitler's hatred of Jews originated in that bit of personal history, how does one explain the equally murderous bigotry of, say, Goebbels or Himmler?

Part of the power of this intelligently and finely wrought novel is that such thoughts and questions arise unforced from the story, as though from life itself.,0,3061942.story



4.11. Driving Guantanamo Detainees Insane

By Stephen Soldz

29/04/08 "ICH" -- - The New York Times today reminds us of the truly horrifying conditions at the Guantanamo prison. The Times reports on claims that solitary confinement in their 8′ by 12′ metal cells with no windows and nothing to do but read the Koran for 22 hours a day is literally driving many detainees insane. This situation is being raised by lawyers for detainees indicted for war crimes as the lawyers claim that their clients are unable to concentrate and aid the defense in preparation for their upcoming trials.

By many definitions, treatment that drives people insane would constitute “torture.” But, when the US ratified the UN Convention Against Torture and other Cruel, Inhuman, or Degrading Treatment or Punishment, they adopted reservations to the treaty that restricted the definition of torture to potentially exclude such cases. Thus they stated that

[I]n order to constitute torture, an act must be specifically intended to inflict severe physical or mental pain or suffering and that mental pain or suffering refers to prolonged mental harm caused by or resulting from (1) the intentional infliction or threatened infliction of severe physical pain or suffering; (2) the administration or application, or threatened administration or application, of mind altering substances or other procedures calculated to disrupt profoundly the senses or the personality; (3) the threat of imminent death; or (4) the threat that another person will imminently be subjected to death, severe physical pain or suffering, or the administration or application of mind altering substances or other procedures calculated to disrupt profoundly the senses or personality.

Given this definition, the question of whether confinement at Guantanamo is torture depends upon whether one can make a good argument that this confinement is among procedures calculated to disrupt profoundly the senses or the personality.

One certainly could argue that behavior, such as that described in the Times, [e.g., ‘I'm talking to the ceiling now,'] constitutes a profound disruption of the senses, making it “torture,” even according to the restricted US definition.

In its defense, the US, according to the Times, is apparently distorting statistics of the rate of mental illness there. An additional tactic used by military health representatives I have heard is to claim that many of the emotional problems among detainees are do to what are called “personality disorders.” This is clever because personality disorders, by definition, have been present for many years, thus predating imprisonment in hell, er, Guantanamo.

As the military confirms, the vast majority of Guantanamo detainees are housed in extremely harsh conditions invoving near permanent isolation for years on end:

According to military statistics, three-quarters of the detainees have been held recently in two “camps” that look much like American [supermax] prisons. Camp 5 and Camp 6, heavily guarded concrete buildings, hold men who have yet to face trial. Behind a heavy door, each cell has a handful of sanctioned items including a cup and a Koran.

Officials concede that the daily two hours of recreation in a chain-link pen is sometimes offered in the dark. From inside their cells, detainees cannot see the outdoors. From the exercise pens they sometimes can see only a sliver of sky.

But, in the Alice-in-Wonderland world that is Guantanamo and other US national security detention facilities, nothing is as it seems. The military are trying to prove the Humpty Dumpty correct that “When I use a word,” Humpty Dumpty said in rather a scornful tone. “It means just what I choose it to mean - neither more or less.” Thus, as described by an attorney, while at Guantanamo,

Conditions are more isolating than many death rows and maximum-security prisons in the United States.

The military prosecutor claims, however,

that the way that Mr. Hamdan was being held did not constitute solitary confinement in part because “detainees can communicate through the walls.”

The literary genre of prison memoirs from Stalinist concentration camps among others is full of accounts of people able to “communicate through walls.” Never before have I heard a claim as brazen as that this flaw in the system of total isolation did not make being locked up alone for years on end in an 8′ by 12′ cell for 22 hours a day “solitary confinement.”

This article does not even mention the existence of another “camp,” the super-secret Camp 7 the existence of which was only admitted by the military to the Associated Press last February. While details about conditions at Camp 7 are unavailable, we can only assume that they are even more brutal than those at Camps 5 and 6 that are described in this Times article.

This past February the American Psychological Association amended their 2007 anti-torture resolution to unequivocally condemn the use of prolonged isolation as unethical. Unfortunately, the APA regularly condemns torture in the abstract but to date has not had a word to say about real, existing, US torture. The APA could give this resolution some concrete meaning by issuing an amicus brief supporting the attempts of these detainees to be moved to less harsh settings, where interaction is allowed. Further, the APA resolution’s states that:

Psychologists are absolutely prohibited from knowingly planning, designing, participating in or assisting in the use of all condemned techniques at any time and may not enlist others to employ these techniques in order to circumvent this resolution’s prohibition.

If this resolution means anything, it means that psychologists are forbidden from participating in any way in activities at Guantanamo’s Camps 5 and 6, where prolonged isolation is the rule. It is time for the APA to speak loud and clear to state, consistent with its own resolutions, that psychologists may not participate in any capacity in these facilities.

However, the APA has consistently asserted that psychologists, rather than aiding abuse, are playing a vital role in protecting detainees. As their military-dominated task force on Psychological Ethics and National Security [PENS] asserted in 2005:

It is consistent with the APA Code of Ethics for psychologists to serve in consultative roles to interrogation- or information-gathering processes for national security-related purposes. While engaging in such consultative and advisory roles entails a delicate balance of ethical considerations, doing so puts psychologists in a unique position to assist in ensuring that such processes are safe and ethical for all participants.

After three long years of revelations about the abuses occurring in US detention facilities and psychologists roles in those abuses, APA leaders are still making this ridiculous claim that psychologists aiding detainee interrogations are primarily protecting detainees.

For years APA members have been pushing for a policy that would bar psychologist participation at Guantanamo, the CIA’s “black sites,” or other facilities outside the reach of the Constitution and international law. [APA members should go here and sign a petition calling for a referendum putting that policy into effect.] However, this policy change, while highly desirable, would be less critical if APA would actually enforce the policies it already has in place that, by any reasonable interpretation, clearly ban participation in Camps 5 and 6, as well as Camp 7. Unfortunately, the APA has a long history of talk against torture, but they have taken few steps to walk the walk. They appear to be dragging their feet until the Bush administration is long gone before taking any position on the well-known abuses of this administration. Perhaps this time they’ll act on the sides of ethics and of human decency and speak out when it might make a difference.

Here is the New York Times article:

Detainees’ Mental Health Is Latest Legal Battle

By William Glaberson

Next month, Salim Ahmed Hamdan, a Yemeni who was once a driver for Osama bin Laden, could become the first detainee to be tried for war crimes in Guantánamo Bay, Cuba. By now, he should be busily working on his defense.

But his lawyers say he cannot. They say Mr. Hamdan has essentially been driven crazy by solitary confinement in an 8-foot-by-12-foot cell where he spends at least 22 hours a day, goes to the bathroom and eats all his meals. His defense team says he is suicidal, hears voices, has flashbacks, talks to himself and says the restrictions of Guantánamo “boil his mind.”

“He will shout at us,” said his military defense lawyer, Lt. Cmdr. Brian L. Mizer. “He will bang his fists on the table.”

His lawyers have asked a military judge to stop his case until Mr. Hamdan is placed in less restrictive conditions at Guantánamo, saying he cannot get a fair trial if he cannot focus on defending himself. The judge is to hear arguments as soon as Monday on whether he has the power to consider the claim.

Critics have long asserted that Guantánamo’s climate-controlled isolation is a breeding ground for madness. But turning that into a legal claim marks a new stage for the military commissions at Guantánamo. As military prosecutors push to get trials under way, they are being met with challenges not just to the charges, but to Guantánamo itself.

Pentagon officials say that Guantánamo holds dangerous men humanely and that there is no unusual quantity of mental illness there. Guantánamo, a military spokeswoman said, does not have solitary confinement, only “single-occupancy cells.”

In response to questions, Cmdr. Pauline A. Storum, the spokeswoman for Guantánamo, asserted that detainees were much healthier psychologically than the population in American prisons. Commander Storum said about 10 percent could be found mentally ill, compared, she said with data showing that more than half of inmates in American correctional institutions had mental health problems.

With their filings, Mr. Hamdan’s lawyers are setting the stage for similar challenges to the procedures of Guantánamo in some 80 expected war crimes cases, lawyers for other detainees say. “The issue of mistreatment of prisoners, the miserable lives they live in these cells, will come up in every case,” said Clive Stafford Smith, a lawyer for 35 detainees.

The case of Salim Hamdan is already a landmark because the Supreme Court used an earlier case against him to strike down the Bush administration’s first military commission system in 2006. But that case, like most of the legal battles over Guantánamo, did not affect conditions there.

Detainees lawyers argue that the effects of intense isolation have gradually turned the prison camp into something of a highly fortified mental ward. Mr. Hamdan’s lawyers say his place as one of the best-known detainees has not spared him.

In more than six years of detention, Mr. Hamdan has had two phone calls to his family and no visits. He has been disciplined, legal filings say, for having a Snickers bar that was given to him by his lawyers and for possessing too many socks.

“Conditions are asphalt, excrement and worse,” he wrote his lawyers in February. “Why, why, why?”

At Guantánamo, there are no family visits, no televisions and no radios. A new policy will for the first time permit one telephone call a year.

In the cells where Mr. Hamdan and more than 200 of Guantánamo’s 280 detainees are held, communication with other detainees is generally by shouting through the slit in the door used for the delivery of meals. Mail is late and often censored, lawyers say.

Conditions are more isolating than many death rows and maximum-security prisons in the United States, said Jules Lobel, a law professor at the University of Pittsburgh who is an expert on American prison conditions.

The military prosecutors declined to comment on the claims about Mr. Hamdan’s condition. As is common at Guantánamo, their legal filings were not made public before the scheduled court date. But defense filings released by Mr. Hamdan’s lawyers recited some prosecution arguments.

The prosecutors argued that the way that Mr. Hamdan was being held did not constitute solitary confinement in part because “detainees can communicate through the walls.” They said that Mr. Hamdan had denied having mental problems and that he was no model detainee, spitting at guards, threatening assault and throwing urine.

Speaking generally, Commander Storum said, detainees are enemy combatants held safely. “We are holding the right people,” she added, “in the right place, for the right reasons, and doing it the right way.”

Prosecutors have said Mr. Hamdan, now about 39, helped Mr. bin Laden elude capture after the 2001 terror attacks. He is charged with transporting weapons for Al Qaeda and being a bin Laden bodyguard and driver.

In recent weeks, his case has drawn wide notice because the defense asserted that senior Pentagon officials exerted improper influence over military prosecutors and pressed cases for political reasons. Hearings on that issue, also scheduled for next week, may expose the internal workings of the military commissions. The former chief Guantánamo prosecutor, Col. Morris D. Davis, who has become a critic of the way the war crimes system is run, is slated to testify for Mr. Hamdan.

But the claim about Mr. Hamdan’s mental health could expose the workings of Guantánamo. According to military statistics, three-quarters of the detainees have been held recently in two “camps” that look much like American prisons. Camp 5 and Camp 6, heavily guarded concrete buildings, hold men who have yet to face trial. Behind a heavy door, each cell has a handful of sanctioned items including a cup and a Koran.

Officials concede that the daily two hours of recreation in a chain-link pen is sometimes offered in the dark. From inside their cells, detainees cannot see the outdoors. From the exercise pens they sometimes can see only a sliver of sky.

Michael E. Mone Jr., a Boston lawyer, visited a client last month in Camp 5, where Mr. Hamdan is held. Mr. Mone said his client, an Uzbek detainee, asked why he could not be held in a place where he could see the sun.

This winter, lawyers for Abdulghappar Turkistani, a detainee in Camp 6, received a letter describing life there. “Losing any contact with anyone,” he wrote, “also being forbidden from the natural sunlight, natural air, being surrounded with a metal box all around is not suitable for a human being.”

Reporters are not permitted to interview detainees, and some international groups, like Amnesty International, have been denied access to detainees.

In leaked reports in 2004 investigators for the International Committee of the Red Cross, who do see detainees, said their treatment, including solitary confinement, amounted to torture. But the Red Cross usually keeps its conclusions private.

As a result, much of what is known about current conditions at Guantánamo comes from lawyers, who visit regularly under tight restrictions. Many describe the men as depressed or delusional. Some, they say, show obvious signs of what some of them call Guantánamo psychosis.

Four detainees are believed to have committed suicide in 2006 and 2007, but the military has never released the official details.

Some of the men are increasingly paranoid and some are losing touch with reality, said Rebecca P. Dick, a Washington lawyer who visited two Afghan detainees in March. “One client said, ‘I’m talking to the ceiling now,’ ” Ms. Dick recalled.

Six detainees, according to military officials, are now on hunger strikes. They are fed liquid nutrition through tubes inserted in their nostrils daily.

Mr. Stafford Smith said one of his clients, a hunger striker, was fixated on a mathematical formula that he believed proves that he will be the next to die.

Another detainee, Mr. Stafford Smith said, has smeared feces on his cell walls. “When I asked him why he was doing it, he told me he had no idea,” Mr. Stafford Smith said.

Last month a lawyer for nine detainees who are members of China’s Uighur ethnic minority told a Congressional committee that one of them, Huzaifa Parhat, said that life at Guantánamo was like having already died. The lawyer, P. Sabin Willett, said Mr. Parhat asked the lawyers to pass on a message. He told them to tell his wife to remarry.

Military officials often dismiss such descriptions as accounts by gullible lawyers manipulated by terrorists trained to make false claims of mistreatment.

Detainees’ lawyers say the military methodically understates the mental illness at Guantánamo for public relations reasons.

In military commission proceedings in recent weeks, there have been hints that some of the men facing charges may be deteriorating psychologically.

A military lawyer for a Sudanese detainee said her client appeared frantic and asked that he be evaluated.

When a judge asked a Saudi detainee the name of a lawyer, the detainee’s answer was: “I have been here for six years. Thank God I can even still remember the names of my own family.”

But Mr. Hamdan’s case is the first in the current system to try to air fully the claim that Guantánamo is warping the minds of the men held there.

Commander Mizer said Mr. Hamdan talked unendingly about his desire to moved to Camp 4, the only place at Guantánamo where detainees are permitted to live communally. Camp 4 is believed to house 50 or fewer detainees who officials classify as highly compliant. Mr. Hamdan blames his lawyers for failing to get him out of Camp 5, Commander Mizer said, and will talk only about that. “He refuses to talk about his case,” he said.

The trial is now set to begin on May 28. But twice in recent months, Commander Mizer said, Mr. Hamdan has said he was dismissing Commander Mizer from the case. “He said, ‘I don’t ever want to see you again,’ ” Commander Mizer said.

There is only one subject, he said, that Mr. Hamdan discusses: Getting out of his cell in Camp 5 at Guantánamo Bay.

4.12. Foreskin Face Cream

Ever wonder what was in that face cream you use? Then check out this article (especially for you ladies): The Skinny On 'Miracle' Wrinkle Cream

A new wrinkle cream that promises fabulous results. But the question everyone's asking is "what's in that cream?"

Barbara Blair says this new gel she's been using makes her face look a lot younger than the Retin-A and vitamin C creams she's been using.

"It's really tightened my skin. Firmed it.

The little lines are much better.

The texture is very appreciably different."

What Blair probably doesn't know is that a key ingredient in the cream is the foreskin of a circumcised baby.

The skin that would otherwise be tossed away. It was first made into a product that helped burn victims heal. Now it's in this antiwrinkle gel, called TNS Recovery Complex.

Betsy Rubenstone is the aesthetician in the plastic surgery dept. at the University of Pennsylvania and she swears by this stuff.

She knows why the foreskin is used.

"It's filled with everything we begin to lose as we age," Rubenstone says. "And that includes growth factors, amino acids, proteins, collage, elastin and holyuronic acid."

Thomas Jefferson University Hospital dermatologist Paul Bujanauskas says while TNS might have merit, he would not prescribe it for his patients because no scientific research proving its value has been published in medical journals.

The cost of one bottle of TNS is about $130. And that will last you about a month and a half. How does it smell? Well that's another downside. Just ask anybody who uses it.

"It's disgusting. It's got a sour smell to it that makes you want to gag," says Blair.  "But you get used to it."

Holocaust Web Site at Emory Receives Claims Conference Grant

Funding will support translation into Arabic, Farsi, Turkish, Russian

Emory University Professor Deborah Lipstadt has received a grant of $120,000 from the New York-based Claims Conference (The Conference on Jewish Material Claims Against Germany) on behalf of her Web site, Holocaust Denial on Trial ( The grant will be used to translate elements of the site into Arabic, Farsi, Turkish and Russian and to develop educational lesson plans.

Holocaust Denial on Trial chronicles Lipstadt's 1996-2000 British trial versus Holocaust denier David Irving. In 1996 he sued Lipstadt in British court alleging libelous content in her book "Denying the Holocaust." Following her resounding victory in 2000, Lipstadt founded the site in conjunction with Emory to provide complete archives of the trial's documents. The site strives to empower readers to identify and reject the lies, distortions and misleading innuendo used by Holocaust deniers.

But there are still those who spread disinformation on the Holocaust. That's why Lipstadt began She is out to make such distortions a thing of the past.

"When people don't have historically accurate information they are susceptible to all sorts of distortions and fabrications," says Lipstadt. "This is true for the Arab speaking world and the English speaking world as well."

Grant Will Fund Translation, Education Tools

The grant will allow to complete 50 myth/fact sheets about the Holocaust in Arabic, Farsi, Turkish and Russian, and to introduce two educational modules on the topic of Auschwitz denial for use in advanced secondary school and undergraduate college courses.

Adding additional languages and lesson plans is just the beginning, says Dan Leshem, web development specialist at Emory, which hosts the site. "We strive to be responsive to our readers' needs. For that reason, we also want to build a connection to the site's readership," he says. Visitors can sign up for periodic newsletters and subscribe to an RSS news feed of Lipstadt's frequently updated blog entries.

"The weight of this site is its integrity," says David Lower, a business analyst at Emory who oversees the site's development. "We have to hold these translations to the highest possible standards. We know that deniers will look for any errors on the site to exploit for their own purposes."

One example of precision in translation was the word "Holocaust" itself, says Leshem. "We transliterated the word and got 10,000 hits." Then, based on a recommendation by a scholar of Arabic, they used another term for holocaust in Arabic that is much more common—it translates loosely as 'the catastrophe of the Jews'—and got 150,000 hits, simply because it is the more common term. "That goes back to the translators knowing the content," Leshem says.

So far, that diligence seems to be working. After posting the first translations of the myth/fact sheets in Arabic, Leshem copied the name "Anne Frank" in Arabic and did a Google search. was listed at number three.

4.17. Lynchings in Congo as penis theft panic hits capital

By Joe BavierTue Apr 22, 1:24 PM ET

Police in Congo have arrested 13 suspected sorcerers accused of using black magic to steal or shrink men's penises after a wave of panic and attempted lynchings triggered by the alleged witchcraft.

Reports of so-called penis snatching are not uncommon in West Africa, where belief in traditional religions and witchcraft remains widespread, and where ritual killings to obtain blood or body parts still occur.

Rumours of penis theft began circulating last week in Kinshasa, Democratic Republic of Congo's sprawling capital of some 8 million inhabitants. They quickly dominated radio call-in shows, with listeners advised to beware of fellow passengers in communal taxis wearing gold rings.

Purported victims, 14 of whom were also detained by police, claimed that sorcerers simply touched them to make their genitals shrink or disappear, in what some residents said was an attempt to extort cash with the promise of a cure.

"You just have to be accused of that, and people come after you. We've had a number of attempted lynchings. ... You see them covered in marks after being beaten," Kinshasa's police chief, Jean-Dieudonne Oleko, told Reuters on Tuesday.

Police arrested the accused sorcerers and their victims in an effort to avoid the sort of bloodshed seen in Ghana a decade ago, when 12 suspected penis snatchers were beaten to death by angry mobs. The 27 men have since been released.

"I'm tempted to say it's one huge joke," Oleko said.

"But when you try to tell the victims that their penises are still there, they tell you that it's become tiny or that they've become impotent. To that I tell them, 'How do you know if you haven't gone home and tried it'," he said.

Some Kinshasa residents accuse a separatist sect from nearby Bas-Congo province of being behind the witchcraft in revenge for a recent government crackdown on its members.

"It's real. Just yesterday here, there was a man who was a victim. We saw. What was left was tiny," said 29-year-old Alain Kalala, who sells phone credits near a Kinshasa police station.

This Company May Be the Biggest Threat to Your Future Health 


On March 11 a new documentary was aired on French television. It is a documentary most Americans will never see, explaining how the gigantic biotech corporation Monsanto is threatening to destroy the agricultural biodiversity which has served mankind for thousands of years. For millennia, farmers have saved seeds from season to season. But when Monsanto developed GM seeds that would resist its own herbicide, Roundup, Monsanto patented the seeds. 

For nearly all of its history the United States Patent and Trademark Office refused to grant patents on seeds, viewing them as life-forms with too many variables to be patented. But in 1980 the U.S. Supreme Court allowed for seed patents in a five-to-four decision, laying the groundwork for a handful of corporations to begin taking control of the world’s food supply.

Since the 1980s, Monsanto has become the world leader in genetic modification of seeds and has won 674 biotechnology patents, more than any other company.

Farmers who buy Monsanto’s Roundup Ready seeds are required to sign an agreement promising not to save the seed produced after each harvest for re-planting, or to sell the seed to other farmers. This means that farmers must buy new seed every year. Monsanto puts pressure on farmers, farmers’ co-ops, seed dealers, and anyone else it suspects may have infringed its patents of genetically modified seeds.

To do this, Monsanto relies on a shadowy army of private investigators and agents. They secretly videotape and photograph farmers, store owners, and co-ops. They infiltrate community meetings. They gather information from informants about farming activities.

Some Monsanto agents pretend to be surveyors. Others confront farmers on their land and try to pressure them to sign papers giving Monsanto access to their private records. Farmers call them the “seed police” and use words such as “Gestapo” and “Mafia” to describe their tactics.

Dr. Mercola's Comments:

Monsanto, which was a plain old chemical business before it rechristened itself a "life sciences" company, and started using bioengineering to develop genetically altered crops, is one of the biggest threats to both mankind and the earth today. They have both the capability and the ruthless drive to, more or less single-handedly, destroy the world’s natural biodiversity and food supply for their own profit.

4.19. Barbican's tribute to 1948 accused of demonising Israel

Alan Gignoux

By Arifa Akbar, Arts Correspondent, Wednesday, 30 April 2008

As far as the organisers of the exhibition are concerned, these photographs of Arab refugees, displaced from their homes in Israel in 1948, are merely an artistic slice of life from a dramatic point in Middle Eastern history.

But the Barbican Arts Centre's show Homeland Lost, consisting of 16 black and white images taken by the photojournalist Alan Gignoux soon after Israel gained independence, is the unlikely frontier of new hostilities between Britain's Israeli and Arab communities.

Jonathan Hoffman, of the Jewish umbrella group the Zionist Federation, has complained to the London arts venue's director Nicholas Kenyon about captions accompanying the photos, which state that the 800,000 Palestinians who left their homes were "uprooted" and "dispossessed". He accused the Barbican of "falsifying" history.

Mr Hoffman insisted he was not speaking on behalf of the federation, on whose board he sits, but added: "The exhibition contains historical distortions which have the effect of demonising Israel."

Similarly, Lior Ben-Dor, a spokesman for the Israeli embassy, said the language used in the exhibition, which was originally funded by the British Council and staged in Jaffa, Amman, Beirut, Cairo, Belfast and Amsterdam without causing offence, did not reflect reality.

He claimed it ignored the fact that the "refugee problem" was caused by Arabs refusing to accept a United Nations resolution for the establishment of a Jewish state alongside an Arab one. "They refused a UN resolution and started a war. The result of war was the creation of a refugee problem," Mr Ben-Dor added.

He also criticised the Barbican for not staging an Israeli film festival for 18 years, despite repeated requests, yet regularly hosting a Palestinian festival, the latest of which closes this week. "We would like for them to open their doors to us," Mr Ben-Dor said. "The embassy would be very happy if the Barbican chose to balance its activities with the Palestinian Film Festival with an Israeli one."

Last night, the Barbican dismissed the accusations and insisted it would not bow to political pressure. It said it had received only two other complaints and defended the decision to stage the show, as well as the language used in the captions.

It said: "We appreciate that interpretations of historical events can potentially be controversial and may inspire strong reactions, but are clear that decisions on such matters need to sit firmly with our artistic and curatorial team.

"This exhibition is a serious, thought-provoking examination of the issue of home and exile, juxtaposing portraits of Palestinian exiles with present-day images of the places that they left in 1948."

London's Palestinian Film Festival is Europe's biggest and has been held at the Barbican for four years. The centre is planning a Yiddish film festival next year, and there was an Israeli Cinema Showcase across the capital earlier this month.

For Mr Hoffman, though, a celebration of Yiddish cinema is not enough. "If the Barbican thinks a Yiddish film season in 2009 goes any way towards balancing four successive years of Palestinian film festivals, they are wrong. It is about as much balance as would be putting chicken soup and salt beef on their restaurant menu."

Mr Hoffman said he objected to the language in a caption describing the forced expulsion of Palestinians. He said: "Many Arab inhabitants left or sold their homes to Israelis."

He claimed that a caption accompanying a picture of a grandfather, saying he was "allowed to stay in Israel after 1948", was inaccurate because Palestinians were not subject to systematic expulsions. Another photo, showing empty fields where a Palestinian village once stood, says its inhabitants fled after hearing of violence nearby where "dozens of Palestinians were killed". Mr Hoffman said this statement was "conjecture".

The London-based Palestinian Solidarity Campaign insisted that the language used was "appropriate" and hailed the festival and exhibition as a success. Its spokesman, Martial Kurtz, said: "It is widely accepted that the creation of Israel involved massacres and villages being erased."


4.20. Johann Hari: Israel is suppressing a secret it must face

How did a Jewish state founded 60 years ago end up throwing filth at cowering Palestinians?

Monday, 28 April 2008

When you hit your 60th birthday, most of you will guzzle down your hormone replacement therapy with a glass of champagne and wonder if you have become everything you dreamed of in your youth. In a few weeks, the state of Israel is going to have that hangover.

She will look in the mirror and think – I have a sore back, rickety knees and a gun at my waist, but I'm still standing. Yet somewhere, she will know she is suppressing an old secret she has to face. I would love to be able to crash the birthday party with words of reassurance. Israel has given us great novelists like Amos Oz and A.B. Yehoshua, great film-makers like Joseph Cedar, great scientific research into Alzheimer's, and great dissident journalists like Amira Hass, Tom Segev and Gideon Levy to expose her own crimes.

She has provided the one lonely spot in the Middle East where gay people are not hounded and hanged, and where women can approach equality.

But I can't do it. Whenever I try to mouth these words, a remembered smell fills my nostrils. It is the smell of shit. Across the occupied West Bank, raw untreated sewage is pumped every day out of the Jewish settlements, along large metal pipes, straight onto Palestinian land. From there, it can enter the groundwater and the reservoirs, and become a poison.

Standing near one of these long, stinking brown-and-yellow rivers of waste recently, the local chief medical officer, Dr Bassam Said Nadi, explained to me: "Recently there were very heavy rains, and the shit started to flow into the reservoir that provides water for this whole area. I knew that if we didn't act, people would die. We had to alert everyone not to drink the water for over a week, and distribute bottles. We were lucky it was spotted. Next time..." He shook his head in fear. This is no freak: a 2004 report by Friends of the Earth found that only six per cent of Israeli settlements adequately treat their sewage.

Meanwhile, in order to punish the population of Gaza for voting "the wrong way", the Israeli army are not allowing past the checkpoints any replacements for the pipes and cement needed to keep the sewage system working. The result? Vast stagnant pools of waste are being held within fragile dykes across the strip, and rotting. Last March, one of them burst, drowning a nine-month-old baby and his elderly grandmother in a tsunami of human waste. The Centre on Housing Rights warns that one heavy rainfall could send 1.5m cubic metres of faeces flowing all over Gaza, causing "a humanitarian and environmental disaster of epic proportions".

So how did it come to this? How did a Jewish state founded 60 years ago with a promise to be "a light unto the nations" end up flinging its filth at a cowering Palestinian population?

The beginnings of an answer lie in the secret Israel has known, and suppressed, all these years. Even now, can we describe what happened 60 years ago honestly and unhysterically? The Jews who arrived in Palestine throughout the twentieth century did not come because they were cruel people who wanted to snuffle out Arabs to persecute. No: they came because they were running for their lives from a genocidal European anti-Semitism that was soon to slaughter six million of their sisters and their sons.

They convinced themselves that Palestine was "a land without people for a people without land". I desperately wish this dream had been true. You can see traces of what might have been in Tel Aviv, a city that really was built on empty sand dunes. But most of Palestine was not empty. It was already inhabited by people who loved the land, and saw it as theirs. They were completely innocent of the long, hellish crimes against the Jews.

When it became clear these Palestinians would not welcome becoming a minority in somebody else's country, darker plans were drawn up. Israel's first Prime Minister, David Ben-Gurion, wrote in 1937: "The Arabs will have to go, but one needs an opportune moment for making it happen, such as a war."

So, for when the moment arrived, he helped draw up Plan Dalit. It was – as Israeli historian Ilan Pappe puts it – "a detailed description of the methods to be used to forcibly evict the people: large-scale intimidation; and laying siege to and bombarding population centres". In 1948, before the Arab armies invaded, this began to be implemented: some 800,000 people were ethnically cleansed, and Israel was built on the ruins. The people who ask angrily why the Palestinians keep longing for their old land should imagine an English version of this story. How would we react if the 30m stateless, persecuted Kurds in the world sent armies and settlers into this country to seize everything in England below Leeds, and swiftly established a free Kurdistan from which we were expelled? Wouldn't we long forever for our children to return to Cornwall and Devon and London? Would it take us only 40 years to compromise and offer to settle for just 22 per cent of what we had?

If we are not going to be endlessly banging our heads against history, the Middle East needs to excavate 1948, and seek a solution. Any peace deal – even one where Israel dismantled the wall and agreed to return to the 1967 borders – tends to crumple on this issue. The Israelis say: if we let all three million come back, we will be outnumbered by Palestinians even within the 1967 borders, so Israel would be voted out of existence. But the Palestinians reply: if we don't have an acknowledgement of the Naqba (catastrophe), and our right under international law to the land our grandfathers fled, how can we move on?

It seemed like an intractable problem – until, two years ago, the Palestinian Center for Policy and Survey Research conducted the first study of the Palestinian Diaspora's desires. They found that only 10 per cent – around 300,000 people – want to return to Israel proper. Israel can accept that many (and compensate the rest) without even enduring much pain. But there has always been a strain of Israeli society that preferred violently setting its own borders, on its own terms, to talk and compromise. This weekend, the elected Hamas government offered a six-month truce that could have led to talks. The Israeli government responded within hours by blowing up a senior Hamas leader and killing a 14-year-old girl.

Perhaps Hamas' proposals are a con; perhaps all the Arab states are lying too when they offer Israel full recognition in exchange for a roll-back to the 1967 borders; but isn't it a good idea to find out? Israel, as she gazes at her grey hairs and discreetly ignores the smell of her own stale shit pumped across Palestine, needs to ask what kind of country she wants to be in the next 60 years.



5.  I now make reference to Paragraph 4, at pages 9- 10, Item 8, and I refer to Annexure “A” as being a copy of that matter on DVD. It is in this context of values that my work at Adelaide Institute needs to be evaluated.

6. The above matter raises the issue of censoring website links and of judicial collusion-conspiracy without giving the accused NATURAL JUSTICE. It is of interest that in my German criminal trial at Mannheim District Court on 8 and 10 November 1999, one item on Adelaide Institute’s website was criminalized:

About the Adelaide Institute

We are a group of individuals who are looking at the Jewish-Nazi Holocaust, in particular we are investigating the allegation that Germans systematically killed six million Jews, four million alone at the Auschwitz concentration camp. In our investigations we refuse to be intimidated by anyone because we believe that the first step in any murder investigation is to forensically test the alleged murder weapon. In the Auschwitz murder case, certain individuals wish to prevent us from focusing upon such an investigation.

The latest version of how the Germans gassed millions of Jews at Auschwitz is propagated by Professor Deborah Lipstadt of Emory University in the U.S.A. who claims that mortuaries were converted into homicidal gas chambers. Proof of this is apparently found in so-called “conversion plans”. We have requested of Professor Lipstadt and of the Holocaust Museum, Washington, to provide us with copies of such conversion plans. We are still waiting for them to provide us with these plans.

In the meantime we have noted the original four million Auschwitz death figure has been reduced by Jean Claude Pressac to a maximum of 800,000. This in itself is good news because it means that around 3.2 million people never died at Auschwitz - a cause for celebration.

We are worried about the fact that to date it has been impossible to reconstruct a homicidal gas chamber. Even the Holocaust Museum in Washington informed us that it could not bring one across from Europe because there are none available. This is like a space museum without a rocket or the Vatican without a Crucifix. We are justifiably sceptical about the homicidal gas chamber claims.

We reject outright that a questioning of the alleged homicidal gas chamber story constitutes “hate talk”, is “anti-Semitic”, “racist” or even “neo-Nazi” activity.

 The director of the Adelaide Institute, Dr Fredrick Töben, puts it thus:  "If I offend anybody because I show poor taste in my sometime blunt and honest questioning, then I apologise. However, if I offend because I am politically incorrect by asking uncomfortable questions, then I claim it as my right, under the free speech principle, to say these things."

We at the Adelaide Institute also focus on the Jewish-Bolshevik Holocaust, a matter which Australian author Helen Demidenko-Darville has raised in her book The Hand That Signed The Paper. The controversy generated by this novel still continues.

Adelaide Institute associate, Mr David Brockschmidt, sums up the essence of Demidenko-Darville´s ‘crime’ in writing this book:

"The merit of Helen Demidenko-Darville´s novel—and hidden agenda of the anti-Demidenko affair—is that she has revealed a basic historical fact, viz, that Lenin´s henchman, Trotzky (Bronstein) and Stalin´s henchman, Kaganovich, were Jewish mass murderers. This historical fact clearly shows that Jews are not always victims in history, but also murderers. Australia’s mass media has failed to publicise this important fact. Why?"

David Brockschmidt displays his parents´ medal received from the West German government for saving Jews during World War II. The Brockschmidt family was also honoured by the Israeli Government and a tree in their memory has been planted in the Avenue of the Righteous Gentiles, Jerusalem, Israel.

David´s father was also instrumental in providing Oskar Schindler with the trucks which transported the Schindler Jews from Poland to Czechoslovakia. Steven Spielberg, who knew the vital role Brockschmidt played in this operation failed to give credit to David´s father. Why?

These two historical issues—the Jewish-Bolshevik Holocaust and the Nazi-Jewish Holocaust—are worthy subjects for an intellectual enquiry. We are aware of the fact that to venture forth in to such an enquiry can be dangerous. Professor Robert Faurisson (France), Mr David Irving (England), Dr Wilhelm Stäglich, Professor Udo Walendy, Messrs Günter Deckert, Germar Rudolf, Mr Thies Christopherson, Pastor Manfred Junger (Germany), Mr Ditlieb Felderer (Sweden), Mr Hans Schmidt (U.S.A.), and Mr Ernst Zündel (Canada) are people who have suffered physically, mentally and materially as a result of their search for truth in history. The enemies of freedom of speech will use physical and legal violence - persecution through prosecution - to stifle debate on these contentious historical issues. There is a tremendous pressure placed on people who dare touch these taboo subjects. All too often the first thing that snaps is the family unit, followed by professional and social ostracism.

So, be warned - this final intellectual journey is not for the faint-hearted. If you dare to seek the truth, in particular about the alleged homicidal gassings, then you will be smeared, libelled and defamed by those who are intellectual midgets but materialistic giants.

If you are mentally strong enough to seek the truth of the matter, then force an open debate. Don't get side tracked by details and always refocus on the basics. Too many individuals drown in a sea of particulars.


People who claim that during World War II, the Germans gassed millions of Jews are levelling three allegations at the Germans:


They planned the construction of huge chemical slaughter houses;


They constructed these huge chemical slaughterhouses during the middle of WWII; and


They used these huge slaughterhouses to exterminate millions of Jews.

Any normal person familiar with bureaucratic red tape will now ask: What proof is there to back up these claims? Firstly, where are the plans of this enterprise? Secondly, where is the budget needed to finance the massive enterprise? Finally, it is inconceivable that such a massive undertaking would get past first base without an executive order. To date, we have been led to believe that ‘a wink and a nudge’ began the alleged extermination project.

We at Adelaide Institute believe that those who level the homicidal gassing allegations at the Germans owe it to the world to come up with irrefutable evidence that this happened.


Instead, these defamers and libellers of the Germans use legal means to stifle debate on the topic. They claim that anyone who asks questions is engaging in ‘hate-talk’, is ‘anti-Semeitic’ is a ‘racist’, even a ‘neo-Nazi’.

If that doesn't work, then physical violence is used to silence those who want to know the truth.

So, come on board if you have the courage to look for truth. We naturally maintain that should—after fifty years—proof of the homicidal gassings be forthcoming, we shall gladly publicise this as well. To date, there has been no proof offered to the world. Robert Faurisson sums it up well; “No holes, no Holocaust!”


We are not ‘holocaust deniers’. We proudly proclaim that to date there is no evidence that millions of people were killed in homicidal gas chambers. That is good news all round. Why would anyone find this offensive? We are celebrating the living who were thought dead. How can this be an offence - unless it offends those who have their snout in the trough which Jewish academic, Dr Frank Knopfelmacher called, “the Holocaust racket”.

If there is to be a mission statement from Adelaide Institute, then it is best summed up in a letter which appeared in The Australian on 22nd February, 1996. Written by John Buchner of Camden of NSW, nine days before the 2nd March federal election:


Phillip Adams referred in a recent column of Review, 13th - 14th January 1996, to a number of foreign situations, which are dealt with in a jocular fashion, but he refers to the German people in a contemporary sense as “Nazi swine”. Many people from a German background have settled in Australia and made a significant contribution to it, including serving in its armed forces against the Nazi regime. Their memory is vilified by Mr Adams´ reference. During my school years here, I endured continual vilification because of my German origins and countless “Hitler Salutes”. However, my complaint to you is not motivated by a chip on the shoulder because of these events. Like most Australians, I can take it and abhor the treatment other national groups have received. My concern is that there seems to be a perpetual open season on all Germans, as though all Germans must forever bear the guilt and shame of the Nazi regime. I can bear references to “Nazi Swine”, albeit without amusement. But what of my children? Are my children to be forever classed “Nazi Swine” in this country?

John Buchner, Camden, NSW


Interestingly, a climate of political correctness pervaded the run-up period to the 2nd of March federal elections, with Liberal and National candidates coming in for some sharp rebukes from their Labor colleagues over publicly-made alleged racist statements. For example, there was Bob Katter who lashed out at “enviro-Nazis”, “femi-Nazis” and “slant-eyed ideologues”. Only the latter statement created an uproar. The “Nazi” word has been used by a number of politicians from all parties because it still has a sting to it. After all, everything done by the Germans prior to and after World War II is eclipsed by what is alleged to have happened at Auschwitz concentration camp. The argument is always “from Mozart, Beethoven and Wagner to the homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz”. That's the card pulled out by anyone who is faced with competition from a German-born Australian or Australian of German descent.


It is from this basis that we take it as our right to challenge the taboo topic´s veracity - did the Germans operate homicidal gas chambers at Auschwitz? It is too cheap for us to decry our work as that of “hate-mongers”, “anti-Semites”, “racists” or “neo-Nazis”. Let us repeat; we are not deniers of the Jewish-Nazi Holocaust. We affirm that to date there is no proof that millions of people were gassed by Germans in homicidal gas chambers. Dare you join us in this continuing intellectual adventure of the 21st Century?

6.1 This item was also used by HREOC Commissioner Kathleen McEvoy when the matter was heard before her. So, too, did Her Honour, Catherine Branson use it in her 17 September 2002 judgment. As well, one of the FCA judges hearing the appeal on 19 March 2003 also used it to justify his supporting Branson J’s decision. The collusion is thus complete and made by those who wish to abandon basic Common Law principles, of granting an accused the right of reply, of Natural Justice.


6.2 I have never been permitted in open court to reply to any of the matters of fact that have given rise to the matters of law that now aim to mentally destroy me by imposing a gag order and a prison sentence for allegedly being in contempt of court. Individuals who participate in such legal procedures are supporting Jewish interests that hide behind such legal actions. It is against Australia’s general self-interest to bow to Jewish self-interests, especially when it concerns an historical contentious matter such as the ‘Holocaust”. All historical matters are revised, then why is there no revision permitted on this Jewish Holocaust-Shoah? The answer is obvious, as expressed in Item 1. above.

7. That the German legal system is diametrically opposed to British Common Law where an individual receives some legal protection. In this action before the court the Applicant is doing everything in his power to introduce the European civil law system into Australia where the basic principle of ‘innocent until proven guilty’, among other fundamental legal principles, does not apply. For example, the mere fact of my mounting a written defence would be regarded as proof of my guilt because the matter of dealing with this historical topic is treated as a summary offence where truth is no defence. There is no defence and the German judges merely decide how contrite/remorseful a person is before inevitably criminalizing the accused as per Item 6. above.

7.1 It is by using the same article the German judiciary criminalized that the judges involved in this matter – beginning with Commissioner Kathleen MacEvoy in the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission, then FCA’s Justice Cathleen Branson – knowingly or unknowingly, are slipping away from those sound Common Law principles that offer some protection to individuals from unjust legal persecution where any mounted defence by an accused is regarded as a proof – as in witch trials – of his guilt.

8. That historical matters should be legally sanctioned is against our intellectual tradition, and especially if embedded in pseudo-racial foundations as is this matter before the court. Historical investigations are essentially political because by studying history one reverts to the political impulses that gave rise to various events that have become historical facts. It is mere coincidence this matter involves “Jews”; were other groups to behave like that and claim victim status and defame the Germans by their allegations, then that too would need investigation – as it has been done, for example the allegation that Germans exterminated the Hereros in German South West Africa/Namibia. The allegation that this was the practice ground for Germans who later perpetrated the extermination of the Jews, has been refuted by historians.

9. In political terms, it is evident from the above that Jewish world domination rests on Holocaust lies. To this day Germans, and anyone who rejects Jewish domination, are afflicted with a guilt complex that rests on the various Jewish Holocaust-Shoah lies. The judiciary is part of this oppressive mechanism and makes itself liable by suppressing the truth about this historical matter on some legal pretext. The history of this action before the FCA speaks for itself. It began in 1996 and is on-going because judges involved in this legal action threw basic Common Law principles overboard. But not only judges – also solicitors and barristers who feared defending anyone brought into court under the RDA at the matters of fact stage.

9.1. If the Australian judiciary returns to Common Law principles, then this historical matter of the Jewish Holocaust-Shoah will be removed from legal sanctions, as it should be. This does not mean that the world media outlets will stop to incite hatred against those who refuse to believe in the Jewish Holocaust-Shoah. When my matter was aired before the Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission the bias in favour of Jewish interests revealed itself through the atrocious ignorance of the commissioner’s knowledge about the Jewish Holocaust-Shoah, as reflected in her Reasons for Decision. Not once did she ask whether it may be the behaviour of Jewish persons that gives rise to antagonism, wrongly labelled ‘antisemitism’.

She had the opportunity to explore the subject matter in depth but did not do it. After all, she was honoured by the University of Mannheim with some kind of human rights award. That she denied me my human rights flowed directly from the logic of the legal framework on which she rested her own perceptions.

Rather than adopting tested Common law principles where the concept of balance ensures that some semblance of justice may emerge, the commissioner vilified me and attempted to silence my thought processes by denying me the right to doubt the factuality of an historical event, doubt being the wellspring of independent thought. Likewise in the FCA where Justice Catherine Branson on 17 September 2000 handed down a summary judgment, having before that scoffed at my not finding legal counsel to represent/defend me before the court.

9.2 Such breaches of Natural Justice is common place within German judicial proceedings where any mounting of a defence will criminalize defence counsel. It is thus this kind of switching-off the mind, of criminalizing independent thinking, of daring to express dissent opinions on historical matters, has progressed in German court to the point of absurdity. Any defence counsel is liable to face imprisonment as did Sylvia Stolz who was sentenced to three years and six months for daring to mount a strong defence on behalf of her client, Ernst Zündel. She was arrested and imprisoned while still in court.

Although the German media pretends a real defence is available in matters Holocaust and was available in the Zündel case, the facts as presented in court prove otherwise. Such blatant abuse of legal process has not yet entered Common Law countries, thought the David Hicks/Guantanamo Bay legal fiasco and the Dr Hanif case here in Australia are moving towards the abandonment of basic Common Law principles.

9.3 It is thus important to resist the Applicant’s attempt to enshrine this historical matter within Australian law and to criminalise dissenting opinions, thereby legally sanctioning an historical viewpoint, namely the Jewish Holocaust-Shoah.

9.3.1 Although the Charles Zentai case is still pending, just as the attempt to introduce War Crimes convictions within Australia’s legal system during the 1990s failed, so too, must the Zentai action fail.

9.3.2 The fact that a one-man operation, such as Dr Efraim Zuroff of the Simon Wiesenthal Centre in Jerusalem, is still hounding octogenarians in Australia, such as Zentai, shames any judicial person involved in such matters. The accompanying hate campaign in the media against Charles Zentai is shamefully biased in favour of the Jewish self-interests that are behind the bringing of Zentai before the courts – and this criticism also applies to this matter before this court.

10. As represented in his Affidavit of 25 April 2008, Exhibit ‘JJ3’, the Applicant, Mr Jeremy Jones, wishes to abandon open court proceedings by criminalizing evidential material I have placed before this court in my defence and placed on the Adelaide Institute website. If the court accepts any argument from the Applicant in support, then this will begin the process of degrading Common Law principles and bring it within the German legal framework where absolute privilege does not attach to anything that is aired in court. Such a move must firmly be resisted because it will lead to defence counsels facing possible arrest within court for “too vigorously” defending their clients, as happened to Sylvia Stolz recently at Mannheim, Germany, when she was arrested for opposing the judge’s attempt to stifle the vigorous defence of her client. The judge, Dr Meinerzhagen, claimed she was in contempt of court because she would not stop challenging his overt prejudice when deciding what is allowable evidence and what is not.

11. In these proceedings it is hoped that my worldview will not be criminalized because I refuse to believe in the lies that are propagated under the concept “Holocaust”.

12. My worldview brings forth a belief system of basic values that are life-affirming, and that includes taking it as my right to doubt anything that passes me by. Without expressed doubt, there is no independent thinking activity and if thinking is not a free activity, then we remain enslaved within another’s conceptual prison.

12.1 For example, the Applicant wishes to impose on me his belief about the historical “Holocaust” without even offering any evidence to support the rational factuality of such a belief. No rationale is offered, only legal threats aimed to shut me up – and that is an abuse of legal process because it is an inherent dishonest act.

12.2 Mr Jones bases his actions on the fact that what I write hurts his feelings. But Mr Jones is a seasoned politician of organised Jewish Australians and I refuse to believe that he sincerely feels hurt when faced with material appearing on Adelaide Institute’s website that asks questions, that demands he justify the accusation levelled against Germans, i.e. that my father was a part of the German war machine that systematically exterminated European Jewry in homicidal gas chambers, without offering any proof thereof.

12.3 When Mr Jones makes such allegations against Germans – against my family – then I take it as my God-given right to test his claims for truth-content, I seek to know the truth of such massive defamatory allegations.

When a senior HREOC administrator advised me in 1996 that all this was world politics writ large, as reflected in Mr Jones’ refused to attend conciliation sessions because he demanded the matter proceed directly to a formal hearing, then I conclude the HREOC decision in 2000 and the FCA judgment in 2002 followed party line procedures as set down by World Jewry’s main ideology enforcers of the party-line on the “Holocaust”.

Similar cases as this current one have appeared in Germany and Austria and the frenzy with which matters “Holocaust” is propagated by and in the world media, reveals that “Holocaust” enforcers are not interested in the truth of a matter but merely desire the control over the narrative, for whatever reason.
