Today three tangentially related items - related in that they show the strengthening Arab awareness of the Holocaust exploitation - and the visceral reaction of the Jewish community against any advances of historical truth. The first came from Dr. Ibrahim Alloush, a member of the Jordanian Writers Association and a leading figure in driving Holocaust Revisionism forward. He titled it modestly: "A Little Good News":
This one goes to revisionist heroes who would not let Zionist tyranny or old age weaken their resolve to fight for truth and justice.
It pleases me greatly to inform you that the satellite TV channel of Al Manar, of Hizbullah in Lebanon, has broadcast large portions of the forum of the Jordanian Writers Association on May 13, 2001 on the air last night (June 30, 2001). The station is very well watched in the countries surrounding Lebanon, including Jordan, and by Arabs outside the Arab World.
Unfortunately, I did not have prior notice that the footage of our forum was going to be broadcast, so I could not watch it myself, but I heard all about it from people the next day : )
The second item shows a Canadian Arab victimized by what we Germans call the "Auschwitz Keule" - the Auschwitz club that lands on anyone without mercy who dares to question the Zionists' Holy Milk Cow. It was sent by C-FAR's director, Paul Fromm, <firstname.lastname@example.org> and it is titled "Arab told to shut up on York Race Relations Committee":
Dear Free Speech Supporter:
The following story is delicious with irony and useful insights.
First, Abu Zahra, an Arab with some concerns of his own, quickly finds out that his group doesn't count, especially when it comes into conflict with Canada's super aggressive and powerful Jewish lobby.
It's clear who's in control.
Even if he isn't dismissed, the Arab has all but been told to keep his mouth shut.
And what was his big crime? He passed out a leaflet that accused Jewish elites of exploiting the "Holocaust".
Well, he's not alone. Many people have noted the obscene sums squeezed from Germany and Switzerland as reparations. The farther we get from WW II, the more strident the denunciations and the demands for money.
Jewish writers like Norman G. Finkelstein in his book THE HOLOCAUST INDUSTRY: REFLECTIONS ON THE EXPLOITATION OF JEWISH SUFFERING have argued that major Jewish organizations and a legion of lawyers have raked off a king's ransom and that relatively little has reached the alleged victims.
There's been no compensation for the victims of Soviet Communism or reparations for the 16-million German expellees driven out by the communist regimes in Czechoslovakia (Sudentenland), Poland (Silesia) and Russia.
It's at least an arguable point that Jewish elites have exploited Jewish sufferings in WW II. But then race relations committees are all about restricting freedom of speech, not expanding dialogue or knowledge. That's the bitter reality, here in Absurdistan, and now Abu Zahra knows it too.
Perhaps, Abu Zahra can console himself with this thought: All the Canadian Jewish Congress and trustee, Alan Shefman, who used to be with the CJC, sought was his dismissal. In Palestine, he'd run a serious risk of being shot or having his house bulldozed or having his unarmed son blasted by an Israeli sniper.
CANADIAN ASSOCIATION FOR FREE EXPRESSION
Perhaps to round out the picture, I will run the June 29, 2001 first three paragraphs describing this incident, as published June 29, 2001 in the Toronto Star, titled "School board censure pleases Jewish group":
Race relations member accused of anti-Semitism
The Canadian Jewish Congress has commended the York Region District School Board for publicly denouncing the distribution of anti-Semitic literature at a race relations conference.
"The board has made a clear, unequivocal statement, and we're happy,'' said Ed Morgan, Ontario chair of the Canadian Jewish Congress.
"But what about the person who actually distributed the material? It seems some further action needs to be taken to ensure this doesn't happen again,'' Morgan said.
So there you have it. This is assuredly not going to endear the Canadian Jewish Congress to the Canadian Arab community! But then, what else is new?
Thought for the Day:
"Perhaps the world wants to spend the next 1000 years on its knees before the Pharisees."
