In the immediate aftermath of the destruction of September 11, several voices were raised that attempted to link the attack on the World Trade Center and Pentagon to Greater Israel's ongoing problems with its subject Palestinian population. Indeed, the former Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, in a stunning display of …

The recent spate of suicide bombings in Israel has created ferment among those writers who labor under the conceit that nations take direction as a result of their scribbling. The cacophonous chorus of jeremiad journalists, mostly found in the pages of the Washington Post, and with the honorable exception of …

Ever since the early 1970's, there has been an attempt to establish the veracity of the widely reported claim that millions of human beings were gassed and burned in the four crematoria at the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp in Southwestern Poland. To be sure, there has always been testimony. But the …

In Berlin the other day the Berlin chapter of B'nai B'rith bestowed the Raoul Wallenberg award on Paul Parks, 77, a Boston civil rights leader who has long been active in Massachusetts politics. The occasion of Parks' honor stems from his claim that he liberated the concentration camp at Dachau, …

S recent advertisement in the New York Times announced that Christianity was not responsible for the Holocaust, in spite of the fact that the cultural products of Christendom bristle with negative characterizations of Jews. One way to approach this argument would be to say that Christians don't need to be …

One of the themes that has emerged in the recent convulsion of reparations demands is that Jewish Holocaust victims should be compensated for all the monies and properties lost as a result of Nazi tyranny. In a sense, this seems only just, because if a person has their belongings stolen …

The Anti-Defamation League of B'nai Brith, an organization devoted to combating Anti-Semitism and bigotry, has started up a new campaign to promote tolerance among children. It's called the "Close the Book on Hate Campaign" and is keyed to the marketing of a new ADL sponsored book, entitled, Hate Hurts. According …

Some years ago Commentary magazine, the flagship publication for neo-conservative Jews, published an article by Milton Himmelfarb that made the simple assertion: “No Hitler, no Holocaust.” What Himmelfarb meant was that if it hadn’t been for the driving force provided by Adolf Hitler’s anti-Semitism, neither the Germans nor anyone else …

The ADL trained their sites on another Holocaust outrage, claiming that a proposed New York art exhibit would trivialize the Holocaust. The offender this time is a German artist who planned to set up an exhibit at the Whitney Art Museum in New York featuring a room bedecked with red …

A libel suit filed by the British historian David Irving against the American Jewish religious instructor Deborah Lipstadt is playing itself out in a London courtroom. The worldwide attention given the trial, which Lipstadt's defense attorneys have attempted to exploit, is not due to the nature of the libels alleged. …

Michael Berenbaum's Op-Ed piece in the Los Angeles Times, "The Growing Assault the Truth of Absolute Evil" represents a wild and irrational attack on Holocaust revisionism with little logic and lots of overblown maledictions. Then tenor of the article is clearly shown by its title, which appends to Deborah Lipstadt's …

On February 3rd the Zionist Organization of America announced that it was mobilizing a number of prominent Jews, including Elie Wiesel, to run full page advertisements in American newspapers condemning the Syrian newspaper which had accused Israel of manipulating the Holocaust for political purposes. The Committee for Open Debate on …

Last month, in a typically ethnocentric proclamation, the Anti-Defamation League decreed that the swastika, although a venerable religious symbol to perhaps two billion people, was an anti-Semitic symbol of hate. The Revisionist stands shoulder to shoulder with the ADL in ferreting out all symbols of hate, and therefore, as a …

The American media has recently reported that the US government has just discovered its complicity in the looting of wealth in Germany after the end of World War Two. The specific case involves the "Gold Train" — actually two trains-- that contained the wealth and especially gold of Hungarian Jews …

As England slouches towards the European Union, it yet heeds the bidding of the Union's falconer, Germany. Unfortunately, while Germany's success in most spheres over the past fifty years has been unrivaled, there is still some continuity with a more intolerant past. In a recent move, spawned by the ubiquitous …

The Anti-Defamation League is anything but lazy. Every month or so they come up with some new campaign to show that they are on the side of the oppressed, the insulted, the injured. Of course, when the ADL was first formed in 1913, after the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire and lynching …

A team of government ministers and Jewish community leaders recommended in October that the British government designate a national "Holocaust Remembrance Day" to be celebrated on the anniversary of the liberation of Auschwitz concentration camp. The purpose of such a memorial — it said — would be to prevent such …

Currently there are renewed demands, largely by some ethnic groups in the United States, to get the Federal Republic of Germany's private sector to pay compensation to an unknown number of individuals who were forced into labor during World War Two. The current German offer of three and a half …

In one of his essays George Orwell described in acute detail the spiritual death of those among his peers who subordinated their minds to the changeable and heavy-handed dictates of the Communist International under Josef Stalin. Orwell understood that without freedom, creativity dies. Men and women may be able to …

The mass murder of Americans by Arab terrorists last Tuesday may not seem an obvious topic of discussion for revisionists. This is especially so if one notes the strained links in the chain that goes from alleged Nazi enormities, to the Holocaust Industry, to Israel, and to these terrible atrocities. …

Everyone is familiar with the fact that a court case has two aspects. On the one hand, there is the case as it is decided in a court of law, on the other hand, there is the case as it is decided in the court of public opinion. Frequently a …

Revisionists are used to being made fun of and being called names. The usual epithet these days is "denier" as in "Holocaust Denier." Of course, revisionists object to the name. They don't feel they are "denying" anything, just this or that aspect of the terrible fate of the Jewish people …

Not to anyone’s great surprise, David Irving lost his libel suit against Deborah Lipstadt and Penguin books. Judge Gray, newly appointed to the bench in England, ruled that, although Lipstadt did libel Irving in her book “Denying the Holocaust”, these libels could not be considered as damaging Irving’s reputation, because …

When confronted with the horns of dilemma, pick up a handful of sand and throw it in the bull's eyes. The defense attorneys for Deborah Lipstadt must have had something like that in mind, for in the last days of the Irving trial they made a spectacular but utterly meaningless …
