The loathsome smearing of Israel's critics

Johann Hari -  8 May 2008

In the US and Britain, there is a campaign to smear anybody who tries to describe the plight of the Palestinian people. It is an attempt to intimidate and silence and to a large degree, it works. There is nobody these self-appointed spokesmen for Israel will not attack as anti-Jewish: liberal Jews, rabbis, even Holocaust survivors.

My own case isn't especially important, but it illustrates how the wider process of intimidation works. I have worked undercover at both the Finsbury Park mosque and among neo-Nazi Holocaust deniers to expose the Jew-hatred there; when I went on the Islam Channel to challenge the anti-Semitism of Islamists, I received a rash of death threats calling me "a Jew-lover", "a Zionist-homo pig" and more.

Ah, but wait. I have also reported from Gaza and the West Bank. Last week, I wrote an article that described how untreated sewage was being pumped from illegal Israeli settlements on to Palestinian land, contaminating theirreservoirs. This isn't controversial. It has been documented by Friends of the Earth, and I have seen it with my own eyes. The response? There was little attempt to dispute the facts I offered.

Instead, some of the most high profile "pro-Israel" writers and media monitoring groups - including Honest Reporting and Camera - said I am an anti-Jewish bigot akin to Joseph Goebbels and Mahmoud Ahmadinejadh, while Melanie Phillips even linked the stabbing of two Jewish people in North London to articles like mine. Vast numbers of e-mails came flooding in calling for me to be sacked.

Any attempt to describe accurately the situation for Palestinians is met like this. If you recount the pumping of sewage onto Palestinian land, "Honest Reporting" claims you are reviving the anti-Semitic myth of Jews "poisoning the wells." If you interview a woman whose baby died in 2002 because she was detained - in labour - by Israeli soldiers at a checkpoint within the West Bank, "Honest Reporting" will say you didn't explain "the real cause": the election of Hamas in, um, 2006. And on, and on.

The former editor of Israel's leading newspaper, Ha'aretz, David Landau, calls the behaviour of these groups "nascent McCarthyism". Those responsible hold extreme positions of their own that place them way to the right of most Israelis. Alan Dershowitz and Melanie Phillips are two of the most prominent figures sent in to attack anyone who disagrees with the Israeli right.

Dershowitz is a lawyer, Harvard professor and author of The Case For Israel. He sees ethnic cleansing as a trifling matter, writing: "Political solutions often require the movement of people, and such movement is not always voluntary ... It is a fifth-rate issue analogous in many respects to some massive urban renewal." If a prominent American figure takes a position on Israel to the left of this, Dershowitz often takes to the airwaves to call them anti-Semites and bigots.

The journalist Melanie Phillips performs a similar role in Britain. Last year a group called Independent Jewish Voices was established with this mission statement: "Palestinians and Israelis alike have the right to peace and security." Jews including Mike Leigh, Stephen Fry and Rabbi David Goldberg joined. Phillips swiftly dubbed them "Jews For Genocide", and said they "encourage" the "killers" of Jews. Where does this come from? She says the Palestinians are an "artificial" people who can be collectively punished because they are "a terrorist population". She believes that while "individual Palestinians may deserve compassion, their cause amounts to Holocaust denial as a national project". Honest Reporting quotes Phillips as a model of reliable reporting.

These individuals spray accusations of anti-Semitism so liberally that by their standards, a majority of Jewish Israelis have anti-Semitic tendencies.

Dershowitz said Jimmy Carter's decision to speak to the elected Hamas government "border[ed] on anti-Semitism." A Ha'aretz poll last month found that 64 per cent of Israelis want their government to do just that.

As US President, Jimmy Carter showed his commitment to Israel by giving it more aid than anywhere else and brokering the only peace deal with an Arab regime the country has ever enjoyed. He also wants to see a safe and secure Palestine alongside it - so last year he wrote a book called Palestine:

Peace Not Apartheid. It is a bland and factual canter through the major human rights reports. There is nothing there you can't read in the mainstream Israeli press every day. Carter's comparison of life on the West Bank (not within Israel) to Apartheid

South Africa is not new. The West Bank is ruled in the interests of a small Jewish minority; it is bisected by roads for the Jewish settlers from which Palestinians are banned. The Israeli human rights group B'tselem says this "bears striking similarities to the racist Apartheid regime". Yet for repeating these facts in the US, Carter has widely called "a racist". Several universities have even refused to let the ex-President speak to their students.

These campus battles often succeed. Norman Finkelstein is a political scientist in the US whose parents were both Jewish survivors of the Warsaw ghetto and the Nazi concentration camps. They lost every blood relative. He made his reputation exposing a hoax called From Time Immemorial by Joan Peters which claimed that Palestine was virtually empty when Zionist settlers arrived, and the people claiming to be Palestinians were mostly impostors who had come from local areas to cash in. Finkelstein showed it to be scarred by falsified figures and gross misreading of sources. From that moment on, he was smeared as an anti-Semite by those who had lauded the book. But it was when Finkelstein revealed two years ago that Alan Dershowitz had, without acknowledgement, drawn wholesale from Peters' hoax for his book The Case For Israel, that the worst began. Dershowitz campaigned to make sure Finkelstein was denied tenure at his university. He even claimed that Finkelstein's mother - who made it through Maidenek and two slave-labour camps - had collaborated with the Nazis. The campaign worked.

Finkelstein was let go by De Paul University, simply for speaking the truth.

Are the likes of Dershowitz and Phillips and Honest Reporting becoming more shrill because they can sense they are losing the argument? Liberal Jews - the majority - are now setting up rivals to the hard-right organisations they work with, because they believe this campaign of demonisation is damaging us all. It damages the Palestinians, because it prevents honest discussion of their plight. It damages the Israelis, because it pushes them further down an aggressive and futile path. And it damages diaspora Jews, because it makes real anti-Semitism harder to deal with.


We need to look the witch-hunters in the eye and say, as Joseph Welch said to Joe McCarthy himself: "You've done enough. Have you no sense of decency, sir, at long last? Have you left no sense of decency?"



College rejects Shoah denier

By Daniella Peled , The Jewish Chronicle, 25 April 2008


A university has withdrawn a researcher’s fellowship after he published an article claiming that the gas chambers of Auschwitz never existed. Nicholas Kollerstrom, an academic specialising in astronomy, posted the article, The Auschwitz “Gas Chamber” Illusion, on the website of the revisionist Committee for Open Debate on the Holocaust. He claimed that only one million Jews died in the war and that “the only intentional mass extermination program[me] in the concentration camps of WW2 was targeted at Germans”.

Dr Kollerstrom, 61, an honorary research fellow at University College London until Tuesday, stood by the claims this week, but expressed surprise that they had caused offence. And he insisted the university “had not actually told me what’s so terrible about the article”. He complained that he had been accused of “thought-crime” after spending months researching it. And he added: “If a smaller number were gassed, then surely the Jewish community should be pleased that it wasn’t so ghastly.”

He wrote: “Let us hope the schoolchildren visitors are properly taught about the elegant swimming-pool at Auschwitz, built by the inmates, who would sunbathe there on Saturday and Sunday afternoons while watching the water-polo matches; and shown the paintings from its art class, which still exist; and told about the camp library which had some 45,000 volumes for inmates to choose from, plus a range of periodicals; and the six camp orchestras at Auschwitz/Birkenau, its theatrical performances, including a children’s opera, the weekly camp cinema, and even the special brothel established there.”

Dr Kollerstrom, of St John’s Wood, North West London, said he prefers to call himself a revisionist rather than a denier. Revisionists, he said, “want to look at European history without quite so much hate and bitterness”. He also claimed he was the victim of “a calumny” by bloggers who had accused him of far-right sympathies and posted on the internet an image doctored to show him in Nazi uniform. “I have some very good Jewish friends and have never had the slightest interest in the Nazi movement,” he said. “I never go to Germany. I have always belonged to things like the Green Party, CND and Respect.”

A UCL spokesman said: “The views expressed by Dr Kollerstrom are diametrically opposed to the aims, objectives and ethos of UCL, such that we wish to have absolutely no association with them or with their originator. “We, therefore, have no choice but to terminate Dr Kollerstrom’s research fellowship with immediate effect.”

A source at the university also said that there had been concern at opinions Dr Kollerstrom had expressed regarding conspiracy theories over the July 7 2005 London bombings and the terror attacks of September 11, 2001. His areas of research include Newtonian theory and the 19th-century British discovery of Neptune. He is also the author of a yearly guide to Gardening and Planting by the Moon, which contains chapters on “Using the Star Zodiac” and “The Moon and Crop Yield”.

Here is an extract from one of his postings on the CODOH website: “Zyklon-B was used at Auschwitz, as an insecticide. It was vital in attempting to maintain hygiene that mattresses be deloused. Cyanide gas was absorbed on to clay-type granules, designed to make the deadly gas as ‘safe’ as it could be. If you go to Auschwitz today, you can’t see any authentic gas chambers. You see stone huts, and experts have testified that they could not have been used to gas people, owing to problems in sealing them up (Zyklon-B released its cyanide gas rather slowly).”

In another, he wrote: “The verdicts of Nuremberg were made final and binding for the post-war FRG [Federal Republic of Germany]. Germany has since paid a hundred billion Deutschmarks to Israel by way of Holocaust-compensation — clearly, that needs to be refunded. Germany should take the advice of Iranian leader Ahmadinajad and stop paying it, because that funding provides undue motivation for holocaust ‘memories’. Germany is helping to maintain the holocaust legend, by thus aiding the state of Israel.”


The Auschwitz 'Gas Chamber' Illusion

By Nicholas Kollerstrom, PhD, 8 May 2008

As surprising as it may sound, the only intentional mass extermination program in the concentration camps of WW2 was targeted at Germans. From April, 1945 five million Germans were rounded up after surrendering, and deliberately starved until well over one million had died, in French and American-run concentration camps[1] - an event soon erased from the history books. There was, in contrast, never a centrally-coordinated Nazi program of exterminating Jews in Germany. Lethal gas chambers did not function in German labour-camps, that's just an illusion. The traditional Holocaust story has developed out of rumours, misunderstandings, and wartime propaganda.

From stories pre-dating the Second World War to the Nuremberg Trials which gave official sanction to the notion, to subsequent trials, books and films, we have had it imprinted on our collective psyche. In most of Europe now, it is a thoughtcrime to believe what you have just read, punishable by imprisonment, so think carefully before deciding to read on.

The real experts on this subject are - in jail, so maybe you will put up with hearing my view instead?

Europe needs, more than anything else, a truth and reconciliation forum to get to the bottom of these matters, and to try and exorcise the demonic hate-images. Ever more nations are passing laws that prohibit citizens from expressing doubt - Germany, France, Austria, Poland, Romania, Belgium, Switzerland, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

Collectively, we need to work through our despair, rage, and ideas of blame, to try and access the real historical record.

Cyanide at Auschwitz

Zyklon-B was used at Auschwitz, as an insecticide. It was vital in attempting to maintain hygiene that mattresses be deloused. Cyanide gas was adsorbed onto clay-type granules, designed to make the deadly gas as 'safe' as it could be. If you go to Auschwitz today, you can't see any authentic gas chambers. You see stone huts, and experts have testified that they could not have been used to gas people, owing to problems in sealing them up (Zyklon-B released its cyanide gas rather slowly[2]).

In 1988 the scientific team of Fred Leuchter (a US execution-expert 'Mr Death' in gas-chamber technology) visited Poland, and concluded that the Auschwitz 'gas chambers' could not possibly have functioned in the alleged manner - i.e., they were not gas chambers[3].

In the following years, others would confirm the accuracy of his seminal, 'Leuchter Report'. The German chemist Germar Rudolf, who worked at the Max Plank institute for Solid State Physics, is now in jail, because he likewise measured the high levels of the cyanide in the walls of the de-lousing chambers. It happens that this gas bonds permanently with iron, and iron is present in all the cement etc of stone walls.

Whereas, he found none in the walls of what were supposed to be the 'gas chambers' which were mainly shower units. He thereby confirmed the work of Leuchter who likewise only found remains of the cyanide gas-insecticide in the delousing chambers.[4]

After Rudolf's report was published in 1993, he lost his job and was prevented from completing his doctorate, then a few years later he was given a jail sentence. He is now in a high-security prison near Stuttgart, for the crime of not finding cyanide in the 'gas chambers[5],' echoing Leuchter's cyanide residue investigations. [6] When a chemist is put in jail, for replicating the result of another - in Germany of all places, the nation which invented chemical procedure then the farce cannot continue for much longer[7] (The gas chambers were conveniently located east of Germany behind the Iron Curtain to make them inaccessible to westerners, which helped the myth to flourish).

The Leuchter results were almost too good to be true, with a three orders of magnitude difference between the cyanide levels in the delousing chamber walls (about one part per thousand) and those in the washing chambers (aka 'gas chambers'), around one part per million. They are not published in any peer-reviewed chemistry journal, for obvious reasons. The only way to hold a debate on this subject appears to be in a courtroom, while being prosecuted! It is hard to reach the calm condition necessary for replication of chemical measurements. Nonetheless people have replicated the fundamental result[8], and even folk with no interest in chemistry can appreciate the pretty blue colour on the outside of the de-lousing chamber (where the Ferro cyanide has seeped right through the wall) and its complete absence around the so-called 'gas chambers.' Let's face it, the case is established: the cyanide poison was used where the German records state that it was used  for delousing mattresses, clothing etc - whereas it was not used where the US and UK (at Nuremberg) alleged.

Tourists, thirty million of them, have filed through 'Krema 1' at Auschwitz, with its piteous piles of shoes, etc of the dead. This was reconstructed after the war in 1946[9], a fact revealed 1992 by Dr. Franciszek Piper, the Senior Curator and Director of Archives of the Auschwitz State Museum. The historic remains from the camp are such things as shower-unit huts, a swimming pool and a morgue. There was a camp orchestra, and quite a collection of pictures from the camp art-classes,[10] although these cannot be shown in Germany or Poland, on account of laws prohibiting the doubting of the Holocaust. Anne Frank of 'Diary' fame came to the camp in 1944 with her father who was ill. He was put into the hospital there, and recovered, suggesting that he was decently looked after.[11]

The 'gas chambers' at Auschwitz had water pipes in their ceilings, indicating that they were designed as shower units. They generally lacked tight-seal doors, which would have been essential, even though these were easy to install the Leuchter report cited the absence of such seals as one reason why the alleged 'gas chambers' would never have functioned.

The Arithmetic of Annihilation

The primary argument put forward by Professor Arthur Butz in his classic text, The Hoax of the 20th Century was demographic: the Jews of Europe were still there after the war and therefore had not been exterminated.

They had generally moved eastwards, and once the Iron curtain came down in 1948 it became difficult to count them. Some two million emigrated from Europe, both to Palestine and America. Between 3 12 and 4 million Jews had lived in all the lands controlled by Adolf Hitler [12], of which an upper limit of one million died in WW2: the figure of a million dead, 'while possible, seems rather high to me', concluded Butz [13],[14] - a figure to be contrasted with ten million Germans who died during and just after that war[15]. If somewhere around fifty million people died during WW2, that Jewish mortality comprised some 2% of this total: which is about the average for Europe, i.e. no great excess of Jews died in WW2. Almost half a million Jews dwelt in Germany around 1930 (around 1% of the population), and by 1939 many had emigrated, some 270,000 remaining [16].

The figure of six million dead is given in the 'Holocaust' section in Wikipedia, with three million having died in Poland. Its high 'extermination' figures are given in counties well to the East of Germany. East Europe was then the epicentre of world Jewry, and in the years around WWII a vast diaspora of Jews took place, mainly into what became the Soviet Union, but also Palestine and America. Poland had 10% of its total population Jewish in the 1930s and the Polish premier had 'stated repeatedly that there were a million too many Jews in Poland'[17] so the pressure on them to emigrate was not solely due to German policies. British rule in Palestine disintegrated in 1938, which meant that its strict immigration quotas ceased to apply. A very careful estimate of East Europe's Jewish population ascertained that there were

2.6 million in Poland at the outbreak of the war - less than the total Polish 'deaths' given by Wikipedia. It put total worldwide mortality of Jews through WWII at 1 14 million, of which most was due to 'Soviet barbarism' rather than German labour-camps [18]. That seems quite comparable to the figure given above. Within the Nazi labour-camps, around four hundred and fifty thousand Jews died.[19]

Around 500,000 prisoners were registered in the labour-camps of Auschwitz in Poland, of which some 130,000 died [20]. Bodies were there disposed of by individual cremation, and the records for coke fuel consumption over the period February 1942 October

1943 for the cremation ovens indicate that around five thousand bodies were then burnt. That accords with the number of registered, deceased inmates, viz those who had died from natural causes [21], who had to be cremated rather than buried because of the great typhoid epidemics. This demonstrates that no mass-incineration of bodies took place. Josef Kramer, a supervisor at the Auschwitz camp, gave a statement after the war which is recommended by Professor Butz as probably genuine: it had 350-500 deaths per week happening over May-November 1944, all from natural causes, a very high figure because sick prisoners were sent there, and the dead were all cremated. He believed the camp held up to 100,000 prisoners, mainly Poles and Prussians. [22]

The Final Solution  An Export Program

The 'Final Solution' of Adolf Hitler retained a single meaning right through WW2, central to the program of 'National socialism,' and signified the deportation of Jews, generally eastwards to Poland and Russia [23].

This program did not change at any point, e.g. the Wannsee conference of 1942, [24] to signify deliberate extermination. If that practice ever happened, it was not a centrally-directed policy and did not involve gas chambers: many tons of documentation of 'third Reich' policies remains, and no-one has been able to find therein any hint of such a meaning of intentional genocide. The historical record fails to show any central decision to exterminate Jews by Nazi Germany.

The Gestapo and Zionists were collaborating in the late 30s because they had in this respect similar aims. [25] But, a German Foreign Office circular bulletin of June 22, 1937 stated that: 'In view of the anti-German agitation of international Jewry, Germany cannot agree that the formation of a Palestine Jewish state would help the peaceful development of the nations of the world'.[26] International Jewish organisations twice declared war on Germany, in 1933 then again in 1939[27]. As the 'final solution' policy[28] was thwarted by the Allies, the camps became places of hard labour; then under the impact of Allied terror-bombing ravages of disease and famine took place.

No Documents!

At the Auschwitz trial held at Frankfurt in the mid-sixties, the court had to conclude that it lacked 'almost all the means or evidence available in a normal murder trial' including 'the bodies of the victim, autopsy reports, expert reports on the cause of death, evidence as to the criminals, murder weapons, etc[29].' Far from leading to doubt, this gave to the mythic gas chambers a metaphysical status, doubt of which was forbidden. 'No documents have survived, perhaps none ever existed,' concluded the Holocaust historian Léon Poliakov. [30]

'In the case of the rush to impute to the Nazis a programme for the extermination of millions of people which has implausibly left no material traces, all the normal rules of historiography seem not only to have been suspended, but to have been violated over and over again. Historians routinely cite documents from secondary works like Raul Hilberg's The Destruction of the European Jews (1961) or from printed collections of documents, such as Robert Wolfe's Holocaust: The Documentary Evidence - but they never cite original documents. [31]

The nearest we have to primary-source documents concerning what went on within the camps, comes from the bulky, three-volume International Red Cross Report published in 1948. This and especially Volume III describes the couple of thousand regular, routine inspection-visits that its doctors made through the war years to the Polish labour-camps. Their report never hints at any gas-chamber, nor any mass-cremations. While maintaining a politically neutral position [32], it confirms that mortality in the camps was to a large extent caused by the allied terror-bombing. [33] Likewise Winston Churchill's bulky, six-volume account of the War gives no allusion to the subject, especially volume Six, Triumph and Tragedy where one would expect to have some allusion if he believed it had happened.[34]

The head of the SS camp administration office sent a directive dated Dec. 28, 1942, to Auschwitz and the other concentration camps. It sharply criticised the high death rate of inmates due to disease, and ordered that "camp physicians must use all means at their disposal to significantly reduce the death rate in the various camps." Furthermore, it ordered: "The camp doctors must supervise more often than in the past the nutrition of the prisoners and, in cooperation with the administration, submit improvement recommendations to the camp commandants ... The camp doctors are to see to it that the working conditions at the various labor places are improved as much as possible." The directive stressed that "the Reichsfuhrer SS [Heinrich Himmler] has ordered that the death rate absolutely must be reduced."[35] A further letter to all concentration camp commanders dated 20th January, 1943, reaffirmed that 'every means must be used to lower the death rate.' By September 1943 Auschwitz still had mortality peaking at 80/day, viewed as 'catastrophic' by the SS administration. Thus, from authentic documents concerning the need to reduce fatalities at the Auschwitz camp, the world has moved to a belief in genocide, with not a single authentic, supporting document [36].

The Auschwitz camp was set up as an industrial plant using the giant coalfields of Poland, and located at the confluence of rivers; it was essential to the war-effort - it would have made no sense to start exterminating its inmates.

The Hamburg judge Wilhelm Staeglich had been positioned near Auschwitz during the war and had on various occasions dropped into the camps around there.

The conditions seemed fairly tolerable, he recalled, and certainly nothing resembling an extermination program existed. In particular, he had discerned no fear of mistreatment amongst the inmates. He published a testimony to this effect in 1973, and in return for his shocking news a German inquisition forced him to resign his job, stripped him of his doctoral degree, and banned his book. He was then subjected to police raids. His book, translated into English, is an essential text. [37]

German military radio messages were successfully decrypted at Bletchley Park using the 'enigma' codebreaker. Concerning the labour camps, over the period Spring 1942-February '43, the following information was obtained: 'The return from Auschwitz, the largest of the camps with 20,000 prisoners, mentioned illness as the main cause of death, but included references to shootings and hangings. There were no references in the decrypts to gassings.'[38] That seems clear enough - though no-one took any notice of it at Nuremberg.

No Photos!

Not only is there no trace of 'Third Reich' documentation [39] for what is alleged, but no photographs exist showing anything resembling such a group-gassing procedure. Do you believe that Jews both male and female stripped then marched into the gas chambers, then were hauled out in piles? If so, are you willing to believe that neither the very-thorough Germans nor the clever Jews wanted or were able to get a single picture of this ultimate horror? Go to Google and search you'll find rows of emaciated bodies, dead of typhus, will that do? I don't think so.

US air-photographs taken in 1944 (released in 1978) when the 'program' was supposed to be in full swing do not show any huge crematoria burning corpses nor queues entering the 'gas chambers: 'The few air photos of Auschwitz-Birkenau known to date from the period of December 1943 to February 1945 show no signs of fuel depots, smoke from chimneys or open fires, burning pits or pyres. The photos were altered: Zyklon B input hatches, groups of inmates, and walls around crematoria were retouched onto the photo negatives To this day there is no air photo evidence to support the alleged mass murder of the Jews at any location in Europe occupied by the Germans during World War Two.That the photos in western hands were altered in order to incriminate Germany, and were first published by the CIA, is also very significant indeed.'[40]

The Fabrication of Untruth

Let's hear a couple of testimonies concerning the dreaded gas-chambers. An Austrian woman, Maria Van Herwaarden, testified about her camp experiences in a Toronto District Court in March 1988, as she had been interned in Auschwitz-Birkenau in 1942 for having sexual relations with a Polish forced laborer. On the train trip to the camp, a Gypsy woman told her and the others that they would all be gassed at Auschwitz.

Upon arrival, Maria and the other women were ordered to undress and go into a large concrete room without windows to take a shower. The terrified women were sure that they were about to die. But then, instead of gas, water came out of the shower heads. Auschwitz was no vacation center, Maria confirmed, and she witnessed the death of many fellow inmates by disease, particularly typhus, and quite a few committed suicide. But she saw no evidence at all of mass killings, gassings, or of any extermination program.[41] A Jewish woman named Marika Frank arrived at Auschwitz-Birkenau from Hungary in July 1944, when 25,000 Jews were supposedly gassed and cremated daily.

She likewise testified after the war that she heard and saw nothing of "gas chambers" during the time she was interned there. She heard the gassing stories only later. [42]

The Allied carpet-bombing destroyed the supply lines for the Camps, and so the death-toll mounted from famine and disease. Leaflets were dropped from the air, alleging that at Auschwitz a 'final solution'/extermination of Jews policy was being conducted, using gas. [43] That was the genesis of the story, as those Allied-propaganda leaflets were believed. Greeted by the sight, of rows of famished Jews who had died of e.g. typhoid, it was not hard to see its confirmation. 'Far from it being common knowledge in Germany that people were being gassed the vast majority of Germans were horrified by the United Nations accusations and they protested that they had never heard of such acts until after the cessation of hostilities when they had begun listening to United Nations broadcasts . Since the British Broadcasting Corporation had been broadcasting these accusations regularly for many months before the end of the war, those Germans who had "common knowledge" of the gassing before the war's end most likely got this "knowledge" from the BBC!'[44] The gas-chamber legend was born in December 1941, when the German author Thomas Mann declared on the BBC that, in German hospitals, the severely wounded, the old and the feeble were culled with poison gas. This was the 'first appearance of gas chambers in propaganda.'[45]

As to how the stories got going, here is a remark by Faurisson: 'The Foreign Office saw the new rumors of the Second World War only as Jewish inventions, and many in American circles shared that conviction [46].

Edward Benes, President of Czechoslovakia (in exile in London), announced in November 1942, after inquiry by his staff, that the Germans, contrary to what had been reported to him, were not exterminating the Jews. The American Jew, Felix Frankfurter, a Supreme Court judge, stated to Jan Karski on the subject: "I can't believe you." In August of 1943, Cordell Hull, Secretary of State, warned the U.S. ambassador in Moscow by telegram that in planning a joint Allied statement on "the German crimes in Poland", it would be advisable to eliminate any mention of the gas chambers, since, as the British pointed out, there was "insufficient evidence" in the matter[47]

The Hoax of Nuremberg

A modern inquiry needs to start from the data-fabrication at Nuremberg by the US/UK, using systematic assassination and torture of witnesses. The Nuremberg trials started in 1946 with the image of six million dead as firmly established.[48] This did not emerge as a conclusion from the trials, but in its immensity it was presented to the tortured and/or beaten[49] Nazis as a fact, and would they confess their part in it? All the main defendants at Nuremberg insisted that prior to the trial they had not known of any mass murder of Jews: except that Rudolf Höss, the former Commandant of Auschwitz, signed on March 15, 1946, a document averring that he had overseen the slaughter of two and a half million Jews, and this was read out on 15th April at Nurnberg. That day signified the birth of Auschwitz's horror-myth. Two weeks earlier, Höss had remarked:

“Certainly, I signed a statement that I killed two and half million Jews. I could just as well have said it was five million Jews. There are certain methods by which any confession can be obtained, whether it is true or not."[50]

Decades later, an account was published of how Höss had been tortured for three days and nights without sleep by a British army team in order to extract that statement.[51] In a letter to his wife, Höss apologised for his 'confessions' and explains that they had been extracted from him under torture[52].

The victorious Allies could not have their 'truth' come out at Nuremberg, without the assistance of torture. In 2001, Patricia Meehan discussed the network of secret "Direct Interrogation Centres" the British had set up in their occupational zone of Germany[53] - torture chambers, to prepare 'evidence' for the upcoming trials. A Zionist influence was noted at the Nuremberg trials, [54] not least concerning the figure of six million.[55]

Weighty books are in print as memorials to 'the Holocaust', but, let's hear a sceptical view from Down Under:

"Yet in the case of the Holocaust, the dearth of material evidence for the existence of large-scale extermination programme is not perceived as significant. It is assumed that the Nazis destroyed their vast death machinery so thoroughly as to preclude all possibility of post-war detection. It is not permissible to express doubts as to whether the Nazis could really have eliminated all material evidence so completely, including making the ashes of six million people vanish from the locations at which they must have been interred. To think such doubts is to engage in thought crime.

'The reality, therefore, is that the bulk of the 'evidence' for the Holocaust derives from a corpus of documents that was expressly manufactured by the OSS and OCC in 1945-46 for the purpose of incriminating the leaders of the former German government at Nuremberg. The procedure went roughly along these lines: the Documentation Division in Paris created 'copies' (in English only), certified them as true, and sent them to the prosecution in Nuremberg, while the original documents (if they ever existed) were never seen or heard of again. German translations of the original English texts were then prepared and sent to the defense in Nuremberg, where they arrived as late as possible so that the defense had insufficient time to worry about such matters as their authenticity.

'Starting in May 1945 with the alleged suicides of SS-General Hans-Adolf Prützmann, SS head Heinrich Himmler and SS-General Odilo Globocnik while in British captivity, there followed a bizarre string of murders of individuals associated with the Auschwitz concentration camp. (These were perpetrated by a Jewish hit squad known as the DIN.) As Joseph Bellinger, author of a new book on Himmler's murder, points out, within six months or so of the war's end practically any one who could have shed light on the Jewish policy of the Third Reich was murdered!' This, it must be said, was extremely convenient for the prosecution at Nuremberg. [56]

At Nuremberg, the German war-generals as well as being tortured had their wives arrested, to dissuade them from making inappropriate remarks in court. They were kept in solitary confinement to prevent their comparing notes, as each was presented with the Great Untruth and asked to believe it. Finally, most of them were hanged, by a court which felt free to invent new laws, and to act as prosecutor, judge, lawyer and

executioner: American justice!

Coming of the Truthseekers

In the post-war years, anyone claiming to have a personal memory of the German gas-chambers would be liable to have Paul Rassinier turn up on their doorstep. Having himself experience the hell of the Buchenwald camp he was far from being a fan of the Nazis; but, neither was he prepared to endure fabricated stories on the subject. He spent years travelling about Europe with his tape-recorder and questions, but always he found that the witnesses came out with 'evasions or palpable lies,' and his published report concluded:

With regard to the gas chambers, the almost endless procession of false witnesses and of falsified documents to which I have drawn the reader's attention during this long study, proves, nevertheless, one thing: never at any moment did the responsible authorities of the Third Reich intend to order - or in fact order  the extermination of the Jews in this or any other manner.[57]

That bold conclusion (for which he was, naturally, jailed) kick-started the 'revisionist' movement! We may here note that the money which the FRG keeps paying out to 'holocaust survivors' does enormous damage here, in stimulating 'memories' and generating such averred cases.

Revisionist Pioneers: David Irving, Ernst Zündel, and Germar Rudolf

Robert Faurisson investigated the configuration of the alleged Auschwitz 'gas chambers,' then Zundel [58] got to hear of this. At a historic 1985 trial in Toronto, witnesses were grilled for the first time ever over the existence of the alleged 'gas chambers,' and it was found that no such testimony would stand up.

Faurisson was an advisor to Zundel in this trial, and a subsequent one, and this duo just kept on winning the arguments. The prosecution could come up with no credible witnesses for a gas-chamber's existence:

" in 1988, during the second trial against Ernst Zündel, the public prosecutor deemed it prudent to abandon any recourse to witnesses. Canadian justice had apparently understood the lesson of the first trial: there were no credible witnesses to the existence and operation of the 'Nazi gas chambers'.

Little by little, every other country in the world has learned this same lesson. At the trial of Klaus Barbie in France, in 1987, there was talk about the gas chambers of Auschwitz but no one produced any witnesses who could properly speak about them. All the while in France, during several revisionist trials, Jewish witnesses sometimes came to evoke the gas chambers but none of them testified before the court as to having seen one or having participated in a homicidal gassing by hauling bodies out of the 'gas chambers'.

"Today, gas chamber witnesses are making themselves extremely scarce and the Demjanjuk trial in Israel, which once again has revealed how much false testimony is involved in the matter, has contributed to the suppression. Several years ago, it happened that I was aggressively questioned at the rear of a law court by elderly Jews who presented themselves as "living witnesses to the gas chambers of Auschwitz", showing me their tattoos. It was necessary for me only to ask them to look me in the eyes and to describe for me a gas chamber that inevitably they retorted: "How could I do this? If I had seen a gas chamber with my own eyes I would not be here today to speak with you; I myself would have been gassed also.""[59] (Faurisson)

The study of history cannot exist without dissenting views, and who would want to read a history journal that did not allow this? One fails to understand why 'revisionism' should be reprehensible, and Jews especially should be relieved to discover that their ancestors were never subject to such a horror.

Bestselling author David Irving, who has written over a dozen books on WWII, was recently jailed [60]. His definitive, 700- page blockbuster Hitler's War gave no hint that the Fuhrer ever got to hear of a gas chamber, or gave any extermination command! Irving is known for the care with which he checks out his primary-source material. In 1991 his publisher, Macmillan, destroyed all their copies of his books.

Irving has paid quite a price for the truth he discovered.

In November 1991 Fred Leuchter was about to speak at Chelsea Town Hall (invited by David Irving), when he was arrested onstage by the police at the request of the Board of Deputies of British Jews, and deported back to the United States. So much for freedom of speech. When his trailblazing 'Leuchter Report' was first published in 1989, the House of Commons denounced it as 'Nazi propaganda' and a 'fascist publication' (on July 20th, with 100 MPs voting). Even the House of Commons, however, cannot alter the laws of chemistry: the durability of the ferrocyanide ion is now pivotal to the Holocaust debate!

We are not likely to get important insights unless the 'thoughtcrime' penalty is lifted from the German people, and they are allowed to review their own past.

The definitive modern textbook, Dissecting the Holocaust has chapters by some twenty different authors over six hundred pages. [61] In 1995 the German Government demanded that all copies be confiscated and burnt![62] Edited by Germar Rudolf, it draws its inspiration from the pioneer labours of Ernst Zundel.

While in Tennessee and publishing 'revisionist' material, he was seized by the police and thrown into solitary confinement in a Canadian jail [63]. After two years he was transferred to Germany, where his trial now progresses. He recently (October 2006) read to the court an open letter from the Iranian president to Germany's chancellor - to the judge's fury. The letter said, in effect, that Germany had been on its knees before Zion for fifty years and it was time to get up [64].  

Here are conclusions which Professor Robert Faurisson (University of Lyon) has drawn:: [65]

· that there was neither an order, nor a plan, nor a budget for the alleged genocide of the Jews; 

· that 'Wannsee' was at best only a "silly story"; 

· that there existed no specialist's report on the weapon of the crime concluding that 'the building (whether intact, "reconstructed", or in ruins) served as a homicidal gas chamber'; 

· that there is no autopsy that would allow us to conclude: 'This is the corpse of a deportee killed by poison gas'[66] 

· that the confession of Rudolf Höß was no longer of any value ("Höß was always a very weak and confused witness");

· that their alleged witnesses had probably never seen gas chambers or gassings inasmuch as the best of them, the famous Rudolf Vrba, in 1985, had been obliged to admit before a Canadian judge and jury that in his famous book on the subject he had made use of "poetic licence" or "licentia poetarum";

· that the "Jewish soap" had never existed;

· that the figure of four million victims at Auschwitz was only a fiction; 

· and that from 1942 to 1945, certainly at Auschwitz, but probably overall, more Jews were killed by so-called 'natural' causes [starvation, disease, sickness and overwork] than by 'unnatural' ones.

At the recent Tehran conference, Faurisson summed up his case more succinctly 

· They cannot invoke a single document proving the crime.

· They are unable to provide the least representation of the crime weapon.

· They do not possess any proof nor even any evidence.

· They cannot name a single truthful witness[67]

Forbidden Doubt and Fictional Horror

Doubt anything in our modern world, scoff at sacred texts, no-one will care - except that one kind of doubt is forbidden to you, which will land you in jail ­ in ten different nations! You can read the Hammer-horror account in, e.g., Auschwitz by Lawrence Rees (2005): every hour or so, a thousand naked Jews were marched (somehow) into a room with space for maybe one or two hundred, the doors are locked, then the Zyklon-B is poured down special chutes or holes in the ceiling (which did not exist in the war, they were added later), then after the screaming stops 'powerful fans' remove the poison gas. In your dreams, Mr Rees.

There were no such powerful fans. But, then what? The mass of bodies will be mixed up with the Zyklon-B, and that is specifically designed to keep emitting the cyanide gas slowly. How is anyone supposed to shovel out this tortured mass of corpses mixed up with poison powder? Remember there are only ordinary-sized doors, mostly opening inwards. It’s an unthinkable nightmare that could not possibly have worked, and would certainly have gassed any workers trying to operate it. It is the 'safe' design of this insecticide material, which would have prevented it from functioning in this deliriously-imagined manner.

No German government existed after the war - that was the 'unconditional surrender' which the Allies demanded. By losing both its senior military staff and government, Germany was in effect decapitated - necessary for the illusory version of events to be perpetrated. The verdicts of Nuremberg were made final and binding for the post-war FRG. Germany has since paid a hundred billion Deutschmarks to Israel by way of Holocaust-compensation clearly, that needs to be refunded. Germany should take the advice of Iranian leader Ahmadinajad and stop paying it, because that funding provides undue motivation for holocaust 'memories.' Germany is helping to maintain the holocaust legend,[68] by thus aiding the state of Israel.[69]

The United Nations has now established its annual Holocaust Remembrance Day on 27 January, as of 2006.

On this anniversary, we all need to mull over the faking of history and the Greatest Lie Ever Told. As Perseus gazed at the Medusa only via a mirror, to avoid being petrified, we too need calm reflection and the power of Truth to avoid our collective destruction.

Homo-Hetero-Bi & Metro – or my outing as a Breeder!

By David Brockschmidt

The Director

Australian Broadcasting Corporation

GPO Box 9994

Sydney 2001

1 May 2008


Dear Director

Permit me to pay you a compliment for presenting your new series The State Within, first screened on ABV TV 1 this evening at 8:30PM.

The first part of this program is certainly presenting real life, as did the brilliant BBC TV production, Spooks. However, the first part of The State Within shows a homo-erotic scene between two male characters, which is completely out of place, senseless and idiotic.

Let me explain here why I say this: One of the male actors in this scene looks and acts like an ex-KGB assassin and the other one acts and looks like the right-hand man of the Godfather. Assassins do not exchange French kisses. If this would be the case, it would be their common kiss of death.

In the so-called good-old-days, male and female homosexuality was indirectly and decently portrayed in a funny and sophisticated way, as in the BBC series, Are you being served? Which made these people likable and even lovable to some and indeed giving them a rightful place in a predominant heterosexual society.

But today we live in a decadent, decaying western society where male and female homosexuality is not only promoted as the preferred sexual life-style in contrast to heterosexuality.

Homosexuality is now busting open the front doors like in your otherwise well-made series The State Within. The full-Monty in full force in a non-aesthetic close-up.

Such scenes will not increase heterosexual tolerance for male and female homo and bi-sexuals. The effect is quite the opposite. To say it simply, it’s not a turn-on for anyone, queer or not, but a turn-off.

The so-called Gay and Lesbian Mardigras freak-shows do not increase the tolerance level for the male and female homosexual members of our society either. It only fills the coffers of morally and intellectually corrupt government agencies and private industry collecting the pink dollars. It is bad enough that nature has short-changed these people through biological and genetic deficiencies, which forces them to live out their sexuality in a most unnatural way.

I recently heard a speech from an African leader on TV, surrounded by children and his male and female supporters. He bitterly complained that the ex-colonial power of his country, in this case the United Kingdom, was trying to tell ‘us Africans’, as he said, how to live decently in freedom and democracy. ‘A country’, he said, ‘that is so decadent and in moral decay where women marry women and men marry men’.

When he said this the hundreds of supporters around him, men, women and children, broke out in laughter as their leader kept on belittling their ex-colonial masters whose upper class has turned into a degenerate sexual freak show.

This was a very healthy reaction of a still-healthy African people not yet stuffed up by our degenerated ways of life.

Rome, Athens, Sparta, and other empires were brought down through military over-expansion and rampant male and female homosexuality. Today, our so-called western democratic and free society, where TV cooks and others have reduced Shakespeare’s language to monotone four-letter words on air – which do not include words such as ‘love’ and ‘vote’ – has reached a similar state of decay but without Rome’s and Athen’s sophistication.

While other races, cultures and nations re-produce and where pro-creation comes before re-creation, we in the west do mostly the opposite by promoting directly and indirectly male and female homosexuality, and we abort ourself out of existence.

So, my dear program makers at ‘Our’ AB-GayBC, please save us the agony to watch homo-erotic scenes where they are totally out of place and do not in any way increase the majority hetero-sexual tolerance towards its homo and bi-sexual minority in our country. Crude sexuality in any form belongs into the bedrooms and not on TV screens, and please close your bedroom doors behind you from the inside.

Male and female homosexuality, even the sanitised versions are not sexual role models in a healthy society. This does not mean that this minority must be discriminated against by the majority. There is and should be a place and time for every member of society, also in the media, but in this case preferable after midnight when children are already sleeping. Then the blue movie freak show can start and Dr Freud comes marching in. Oedipus – shnoedipus, I always said, it’s the mother’s fault!

Male and female sexual reproductive organs are not that visually attractive and some close-up shots, as presented on TV, should be of greater interest to gynaecologists than to the general public.

Homophobia was a main problem in the past. Today we have the opposite: Heterophobia. A typical example here is the fact that the homosexual minority in the western world has hi-jacked for itselves the word ‘gay’ from the English language. As a result we hetero-breeders, as they call us, are not allowed to be gay, in the true meaning of the word, anymore because this sexual minority is uncomfortable with their own sexuality, especially being called homosexual.

If heterosexuals would by mistake use the word ‘gay’ today, this would most probably lead to a misunderstanding and some people then exchange something heavier than ‘hellos’ and ‘greetings’. Some of my well-meaning friends tell me this may be true “but you can’t say that”. To that I respond, I am approaching 65, the bank is not breathing down my neck anymore, and I can say whatever I want.

So, here you go, call a spade a spade, say what you think, think what you say –  I have reached the point where I make use of this freedom to speak freely without fear or favour.

Forgeries revealed in the National Archives

David Leppard, May 4, 2008


IT began with a letter uncovered nine years ago addressed by a duke to “Dear Mr Hitler”. One of the most extraordinary academic detective stories of modern times ended yesterday when the National Archives, the official custodian of Britain’s history, admitted that it had been the victim of a master forger.

The public records office, which holds the written record of the British state going back 800 years, said its reputation had been compromised by the discovery that 29 documents from 12 separate files were all forgeries inserted into its records.

The forged documents all relate to alleged British perfidy in the second world war. The archive says the papers had supported sensational allegations by Martin Allen, a self-styled “eminent” historian, in three recent books. These include claims that the Duke of Windsor was a traitor and that British agents had murdered Hitler’s SS boss, Heinrich Himmler, on Winston Churchill’s orders.

The archive also released witness statements given by senior officials to the police. In one of them, Louise Atherton, an archivist, is particularly critical of Allen, saying he “relied heavily” on forged files and accusing him of “significant” exaggeration and inaccurate quotation in his use of the contents of genuine ones.

Allen was unavailable yesterday. One of his former literary agents, Robert Smith, said that Allen had previously denied any involvement in the forgeries.

Suspicions about the authenticity of documents used by Allen were raised by The Sunday Times eight years ago in relation to his book Hidden Agenda: How the Duke of Windsor Betrayed the Allies.

It accused the Queen’s uncle of helping the Germans to conquer France and defeat the British army in the early stages of the second world war.

Allen’s scoop was based largely on what he said was a handwritten letter from the duke to Adolf Hitler dated November 1939. It begins, “Dear Mr Hitler”, and is signed, “EP”, for Edward Prince, an abbreviation the duke occasionally used.

The letter makes veiled references to a tour of the French frontline defences that the duke had just made. It asks Hitler to pay close attention to information the man bringing the letter to him has memorised.

The courier was a German spy, and Allen argues that through him the duke gave Hitler top-secret strategic information that enabled the Germans to attack France at the weakest points in its defences. France fell in six weeks and the British forces were routed.

The letter appears to suggest that the duke, who abdicated in 1936, was willing to resume the throne once Britain had been bullied into a peace settlement.

The Sunday Times commissioned experts to examine the document. Robert Radley, a forensic documents examiner, found “many discrepancies” that made him “highly suspicious”.

Leslie Dicks, another expert, concluded that the letter was “most probably a forgery”.

A paper analyst, Leslie Bowyer, found evidence the letter had been written on a blank page from an old book, a classic forger’s trick. This and other evidence, Bowyer said, “all combine to suggest that this letter is a forgery and probably done relatively recently”.

When challenged to explain these findings, Allen insisted the letter was genuine. He said it had been given to his late father, also a writer on the Nazi era, by Albert Speer, Hitler’s former munitions minister. He said he had found it in his attic.

The Sunday Times declined to serialise the book but it was published and The Observer newspaper nominated Hidden Agenda for book of the year.

There the matter might have lain as an unresolved mystery but in 2003 Allen published The Hitler/Hess Deception, which argued that the flight of Hitler’s deputy, Rudolf Hess, in 1941 was part of a plot to oust Churchill. Once again Allen was challenging the standard version of events, and using documents to prove his thesis.

His next book, Himmler’s Secret War, published two years later, reinforced the forgery concerns. It cited documents from the National Archives that purported to show that British agents acting on Churchill’s orders murdered Himmler, the head of the SS, in 1945 in order to cover up British peace feelers towards him. This contradicted accepted accounts that Himmler had killed himself.

Alarm bells soon rang. Letter-heads on the correspondence supposedly written in 1945 had been created on a high-resolution laser printer. Signatures were found to be written over pencil tracings. Handwriting of different officials was suspiciously similar. Diplomatic titles and key dates were wrong.

Once more Allen denied culpability. He told The Sunday Times: “I think I have been set up. But I do not even know by whom. I am devastated.”

The National Archives conducted an investigation which confirmed that five documents used in the book had been forged. The inquiry also discovered more forged documents, cited in The Hitler/Hess Deception and in Hidden Agenda. Once 17 documents had been identified as likely forgeries, Scot-land Yard was called in. Allen was interviewed by police. Again he denied forgery.

Last year Mike O’Brien, then solicitor-general, said in a parliamentary answer the Crown Prosecution Service had decided there was enough evidence against Allen “to provide a realistic prospect of conviction”. The CPS had decided, however, it was not in the public interest to proceed. He said Allen’s “health and the surrounding circumstances” had contributed to the decision. There was no further explanation.

That decision has upset some leading historians. Sir Max Hastings, an expert on the second world war, said: “It is hard to imagine actions more damaging to the cause of preserving the nation’s heritage than wilfully forging documents designed to alter our historical record.”

John Fox, a historian specialising in Nazi Germany, said the National Archives’ statement casts doubt on the veracity of documents in other collections.

“How on earth were these documents slipped in? This is something that the National Archives has to answer. Whoever got these documents in must have done it in a very clever, sneaky way, so you can’t entirely blame the security. But maybe there are questions with the security.”

The National Archives said yesterday that new security procedures had been put in place.

Texas Body Snatchers

By Israel Shamir -  May 6, 2008, Jaffa – Srinagar

The policy of Total Spectrum Dominance promoted by the Neocons does not refer to far away lands only -- to unruly Afghanistan or disobedient France. It refers to you. It is you, Americans, they want to dominate totally; by controlling your sexual lifestyle and punishing every deviation of thought and act.

The Bible would never have taken off if US law enforcement agencies had been around. They would smother the sublime quest of mankind in its infancy, sending the twelve sons of Israel into foster care in Sodom, for their good old sire had four wives and loved them all. On second thought, the Bible would not even have come that far either, as their ancestor Abraham, this fountain of our faith, would have been locked up for the same sin. That is, if he had not been locked up earlier for teaching his children at home, instead of sending them to the Pharaoh’s school,

or for giving birth at home .

Every aspect of normal behaviour mankind was used to, has become criminalised in the new American legality.

In the beginning of April, hamfisted Texan  police swooped on a remote Mormon ranch, and arrested the men and carried away the women and their children and babies, separating them from their mothers . A judge allowed separating even nursing breastfed babies, giving them to foster care.

This snatching case, where the police took away 437 children and babies from their parents who preferred to live an alternative communal family lifestyle, has advanced the US well beyond any grim vision of totalitarianism ever envisaged by real-life politicians. Americans have already entered the realm of extreme social engineering trod by the LSD writer Aldous Huxley. In that realm of the United Totalitarian States, happy families are being broken up, and hundreds of babies and children are given into adoption to single gender couples. People have lost their children to the state for failing to expose them to the moronising power of the TV mhtml: mid://00002943/#_edn1 [1], or refusing to send them to the state schools. Some have lost their lives as well: in Utah, a John Singer was shot dead for trying to keep his children out of school. The holocaust of Waco with its dozens of parents and children murdered for no sin but their sturdy independence was just the first swallow of elimination of private life in America.

The Texas police had used a false claim in order to justify their action. They claimed a member of the family, one Sarah Barlow, had lodged a complaint Soon it became clear that the complaint was made by a delusionary outsider woman with a history of false reports, and probably in cahoots with police.

There never was a Sarah Barlow. The good wives and daughters of the Texan dissidents were placed under terrible pressure, amounting to torture: they were not even allowed to nurse their babies, unless they bear false witness against their husbands and fathers. It is amazing that all of them withstood the torture and remained faithful. What made the Texan police use such extreme measures against people who peacefully carried on with their lives?

There is a good reason for this onslaught on privacy: The policy of Total Spectrum Dominance promoted by the Neocons does not refer to far away lands only, to unruly Afghanistan or disobedient France. It refers to you. It is you, Americans, they want to dominate totally; by controlling your lifestyle and punishing every free thought and act. And in order to dominate, they need to smash all compartments; first of all, Family. Nothing may stay between an individual and the State. By way of projection, your ideologists ascribe this attitude to your erstwhile enemies, Hitler and Stalin, but as a matter of fact both arch-villains were strongest supporters of family. Stalin terminated the free run of wild-eyed feminists he inherited from the Revolution days; while even today, any reference to family values is considered „pro-Nazi" in Zionist-occupied Merkel’s Germany. It is to the third force of liberal totalitarianism that we owe this last and definite attack on Family.

In a normal world, the Texas kidnapping would be condemned by every voice until the children were free and back in the custody of their parents, until the kidnappers were safely locked in jail. Instead, the American papers and internet sites bother with Tibetan monks‚ inalienable right to own serfs and the evil Chinamen’s interfering with this right. They discuss whether the Japanese may eat whales (no, they may not) and whether the US corporations may consume millions of starving people by turning their food into fuel (yes, they may). At the same time, they allow the oldest and most natural freedom of forming family life to be eroded and undermined. Why don‚t presidential candidates Obama, Clinton and McCain demand safe release of the Texas prisoners - before the Bush regime rides into sunrise to impose his version of permissible intercourse on the rest of mankind?

The enemies of your freedom, the proprietors of your media, have prepared for this onslaught for a long time. They spread malicious rumours of frequent parental child abuse to undermine the natural tie between children and parents. They constructed a fictitious offence of flirting with a girl and called it „harassment". They invented a „plague of the 20th century", AIDS, though this malady occupies umpteenth place in the list of dangerous diseases, well after obesity. They promoted and elevated homosexual activity on their TV channels and in official propaganda - all that in order to eliminate family and turn you into obedient tools in their hands.

They preached to bewildered mankind that whoever objects to their apotheosis of gay love is but a bigot interfering with a question of personal choice between consenting adults. Now, in Texas this sophism has come to naught: a group of consenting adults were arrested and imprisoned for their personal choice - not for having wild sex, or running orgies, or for disturbing the peace, but for forming a steady and caring relationship of polygamous marriage, like the one approved by the Hebrews of old and by the entire East, by the Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists of our own day, in short, by the vast majority of mankind. If there is narrow-minded bigotry, it is the American persecution of alternative families. Alleged persecution of pederasts in Iran is peanuts comparing with this attack on the most traditional way of family life in America.

Polygamy or monogamy? This is ultimately a question of local custom and personal preference. The East allows for polygamy, the West allows for sodomy. The East is not worried by age difference, the West lives in fear of underage wedlock. Apparently, the Eastern gentleman prefers marital bliss with a few nubile beauties at once; the Anglo-American man likes to be buggered by an elderly gentleman. For this reason, the Anglo-American man is forever trying to move eastwards, to escape into the realm of sexual freedom, or - if this man is content with his part - to conquer and eliminate this realm. This could be a good explanation of MiddleEastern wars, the War of Pederasts against Polygamists, surely not a worse one than oil or Jews: in the unforgettable words of George W.

Bush, „they [the Americans] attack us [the East] because they hate and envy our freedom", that is, the Eastern freedom to marry a few wonderful women without going through divorce.

The sturdy villagers of my Palestine do practice polygamy, as I described elsewhere: „I stayed at Hassan’s hospitable house, built on his own land in Yanoun. Hassan is over eighty, a strong and stately old man in grey galabiye and abaya, a sort of full-length dress with a mantle on top. His galabiye is girdled up by a broad leather belt, and a sharp short knife hangs on it. His hands are of good shape and feel as hard as if they were chiselled from local stone when he shakes my hand.

Last year Hajj Hassan made the pilgrimage to Mecca, but he is first and foremost a peasant. Our Lord and Lady of Palestine blessed Hassan. He married, and had a few sons and daughters, and then he took a second wife, and had had some more, until he was surrounded by twelve strong sons and pretty daughters. His spacious three-storied house with smaller outbuildings can compete with the manor of the Beg. There are many olive trees he planted on the slopes, and there is a vine with heavy yellow grapes in front of his house. In the morning the second wife of Hassan, a tall and dignified woman in her sixties, brought me this thick greenish juice of olive together with a big and round country bread, hubz baladi, she had baked half an hour ago. Hard white goat cheese, salty thyme, a bunch of grapes and a glass of sweetish tea with maramiye (sage) leaves completed the meal. Hassan’s first and elderly wife sat with us, basking at the winter sun. mhtml:mid://00002943/#_edn2 [2]

It is normal to have two wives, and it is normal to have one wife, and it is normal to have no wife at all, as so many monks choose. Moreover, it is normal to have two husbands, as the mountain folk of Tibet, Ladakh and Nepal do. (In the West, it is called ménage a trois, and this arrangement allowed Lily Brick to live happily with Vladimir Mayakovski and Osip Brick.) Every such arrangement is normal, if agreed by the involved parties. What is abnormal that’s state interference in the unions of men and women.

The American State pays too much attention to the sex life of its subjects. In normal circumstances, the stained dress of Mlle. Levinsky would cause some anxiety only for her drycleaner; the escapade of Mr Spitzler would annoy his wife only, while the extended family lifestyle of Texan commune would be just their own business. Until the 1960s, the police and FBI used to arrest men and women of different races who dared to congregate - in bed. It is still embedded in American conscience.

Recently, a young black American was sentenced to ten years of jail for having oral sex with a young white girl.

Another sexual obsession of American authorities is „child pornography‰ interpreted in the widest possible way. FBI agents-provocateurs email Japanese anime depicting young girls, and then happily assault the receivers of the emails. Often it has a clear political undertone: an American dissident, an objector to Iraqi war,

Kevin Strom, was recently sentenced to two years of jail for having an email with a girlie picture (actually, that of Brooke Shields, the actress) on his computer. The American Gestapo would lock up Benvenuto Cellini, the great Florentine, for his enticing hermaphrodite child, and probably the visitors to Louvre where the statue is presented, as well, just for looking at it.

In the eternal search for the „hidden hand”, men have produced many unlikely candidates, from the Masons to the Wise Elders of Zion to the Gray Aliens and Lizards, or even as the Russian esoteric Alexandre Dougin proposed in jest, a secret ancient order of women-priestesses pulling and pushing behind the scenes. In a similar vein, tongue-in-cheek, one can imagine a cabal of old man-hating butch dykes, or even eunuchs (like in medieval China or Byzantium) forming the hidden US government, directing the FBI to snatch children and destroy families in Texas, sending Bush to subdue the Middle East and kill off the men - both Oriental and American - their natural competitors for female charms.

We in Israel have been ruled by our Wise Hags of Zion from Golda Meir up till the present president of the Supreme Court, Dorit Beinish, and what we do today, America repeats tomorrow, as

Steve Niva noted in his fine essay The New Walls of Baghdad, subtitled The Israeli Model Surges Toward Iraq. „What we are seeing in Iraq today has much to do with a deeper and far-reaching "Israelization" of U.S. military strategy and tactics. Iraq has become virtually caged in a carapace of concrete walls and razor wire, reinforced by an aerial occupation from the sky, like Gaza, where 1.5 million Palestinians are now living within an enclosed cage, while Israel controls access to the essentials of life through high-tech border terminals and unleashes "penetration raids" and airborne "targeted killings" when resistance is offered."

These imaginary ruling harpies can‚t comprehend that women are naturally attracted to men.

There is a new Israeli law saying that every act of intercourse between man and woman is coercive, and if they work in one company, it always constitutes harassment. In short, there should be no flirtation, no sex either. An Israeli couple had a long and tumultuous relationship for a few years, making love everywhere from the company’s strong room to its computer centre, but, when the relationship soured, the woman brought a complaint for harassment and coercion, and walked away with a cool hundred thousand dollars. An even better and newer Israeli bill proposes to fine every customer of a prostitute by a flat sum of ten thousand dollars - in favour of the prostitute.

Likewise, the American imitators of the Israeli model can‚t comprehend why some women prefer to share one man with a few others - or why some men may share one woman with others, as Abbe Prevost wrote of Manon Lescault. They will forever ruin your lives, corralling you towards the genderless anti-utopia of Huxley.

As much as one feels sorry for imprisoned Palestine, devastated Iraq and for threatened Iran, I can‚t help but feel sorry for you, Americans, the first victims and the first slaves of the New World Order your country tries to impose on the rest of the world. We are together in this fight, we have one enemy, and this enemy is not in North Korea, but in Washington, DC.

FLDS Raid - A Dangerous Legal Precedent, By Joel Skousen

Subject: Observations from South Africa


1. Regarding the situation in South Africa, it is in slow decline in all spheres of life and crime remains rampant.  Big business though continues to thrive.  I think that things will hold together until the end of the soccer world cup, which takes place here in just over two years time.

2. You have probably heard about the persistent power cuts, euphemistically termed "load shedding".  Not a single power station has been built since "freedom" was declared in April 1994, notwithstanding numerous warnings from the power utility Eskom.  All the top engineers and scientists were either forced to leave or resigned and as a consequence no forward planning has taken place.  The CEO enjoys a salary of over R15 million.  In order to finance new power stations electricity tariffs will increase by 53% in the next few months.              

3. Of greater long term concern is the future of agriculture.  The ANC policy is to have 30% of all farms in black hands by 2014.  This target will not be achieved, yet the Agriculture minister has indicated that the ultimate objective is that farmers must represent the racial and gender proportions of the population.  In other words only 5% of farmers can be white males.  Over 3 000 successful fruit and crop farms in the Northern Province (Transvaal) have been sold to indigenous farmers and all have failed.  At Zebedelia once the largest citrus estate in the world, two thirds of the orange trees have died and most of the irrigation equipment has been sold for scrap.

4. There is a hidden agenda behind all this.  First of all wreck the agricultural industry in the name of black economic empowerment and addressing the "wrongs" of the past.  Then food has to be imported (instead of being exported) and foreign exchange has to be borrowed to pay for it.  The interest on the loans (money created out of nothing) eventually exceeds the country's export earnings and more loans have to be raised.  In the end the minerals which provide the bulk of export earnings are obtained for nothing.  This is similar to what has happened in the DRC and is now taking place in Zimbabwe, which has the largest chrome ore reserves in the world.

Dear Associate to Justice M Moore

I would be pleased if you submit the following information to His Honour for comment and directions. A copy of this email is being sent to Applicant’s solicitor and barrister.

1. Although I was on standby I did not receive a call on my mobile on 8 May 2008 for the proposed directions hearing, but I did receive from Applicant’s solicitor a proposed Short Minutes for 8 May 2008 meeting. How valid are these proposed minutes now?

2. As His Honour is aware of my problem in obtaining legal counsel for the 3 June 2008 hearing, I advise that to date I have not secured legal representation and I am continuing my preparation to defend the matter myself. I will be meeting yet another person in Perth on 13 May 2008 in the hope that I can secure legal representation. The climate re legal help in my matter replicates itself in Perth as it prevails in Adelaide, Brisbane, Canberra, Darwin, Hobart/Launceston, Melbourne, Sydney where it is writ large: “for fear of the Jews”.

3. I seek permission to bring two witnesses along to the hearing on 3 June 2008, FCA Justice Alan Goldberg and Mr Richard Krege from Canberra. I assume that Mr Jeremy Jones will be at court in Adelaide on 3 June 2008 so that I can cross-examine him as well.

4. Concerning the judicial-media nexus, I am still awaiting an FoI request I made to the Department of Immigration for a report, dated around November-December 2006, concerning my personal details re my departure from Australia to Iran.

5. I may also wish to have Mr Goldshaft, of the FCA Sydney Registry, as a witness with respect to the 5 December 2006 FCA Sydney originating Notice of Motion hearing and its subsequent reporting in the Adelaide Sunday Mail newspaper.

Please advise. Dr Fredrick Töben, Director, Adelaide Institute.
