The issue of the holocaust rises again. It defies disappearing over its
half-century because the Zionist propaganda has converted it into a means to
produce political and economic benefit, besides exploiting it for the
advancement of occupation and settlement…
A recently published book by an American researcher, discusses the holocaust.
Employing scientific and chemical evidence, it proves that the figure of six
million Jews cremated in the Nazi Auschwitz camps is a lie for
propaganda, as the most spacious of the vaults in the camp could not
have held even one percent of that number.
Why, then, does this problem loom up again now, both for holocaust
commemoration and denial? And who reaps practical benefit from raising the
By and large, the Zionist movement cannot tolerate inactivity in any
facet of the holocaust profession, especially since intelligentsia from around the
globe have begun addressing the corresponding holocaust, that is the one the
Hebrew State is bringing upon the Palestinians.
And so, the Jewish holocaust defenders themselves are on constant alert,
apprehensive of the shift of attention from the fable of the holocaust to the
specific, historic holocaust.
Those who uphold the opposing view are, typically, Western academics
who, by their own testimony, seek to free themselves from Jewish domination
of their memory and continued extortion…
Dr. Ramses Awd, an Arab writer, published an important book, not long ago,
entitled The Holocaust – Between Denial and Upholding, in which he reviews
most of the theses that deal with the acts of massacre of the Jews in the Nazi
period. But this book is not the final word. At the time of its publication the
entire issue was raised anew, especially in the United States, the continent that
was conquered, on all levels, nearly entirely, by Zionist media.
It seems that there was a slump in the political sale of the Zionist product, and
all the standard tools lost their ability to market it anew, while the world forgets
the other side, that is the Palestinian holocaust, which still seeks museums of
The question now discussed in the halls of the universities and the
renowned publishing houses in the world’s capitols, is: has this hen reached its
expiration date, which lays golden eggs for the Jews everywhere?
And has history, now in the prime of its potency, clarified that the victims of
the holocaust were themselves those who created it? Of course there are those
who claim that the Jews actively participated in directing European feelings
against them, according to the theory of resisting assimilation, assimilation
being the essential enemy of Zionism…
When Zionism cannot find an enemy to separate and repel the Jews, it
invents such an enemy; and so was the case with the holocausts. Its
need for it [holocaust] is imperative, even organic, required to fill its message
with the drama needed to get it across. What is happening now is not just an
activation of the holocaust and its revival from ashes, but its reproduction and
Unfortunately for the Zionist circles, the West itself has awoken from its
half-century coma. And so the time has come for the European intellectual to
declare himself historically mature and to liberate himself from the Jewish
guardianship that entangled him in existential difficulties, and in a memory filled
with guilt, on top of the collective guilty verdict applied evenly by Zionism upon
the nations of Europe.
Had it been the Arabs who had raised this thesis on the holocaust and
its industry, and the accompanying additions and distortions, the topic would
not have aroused the interest it has. The awakening came from the West, from
the heart of the very house in which they say there were massacres.
The Hebrew state is wary not only of scientific doubts being cast upon the
holocaust, but also because they see this doubt as a portal to the denunciation
of all the false Jewish claims…
And possibly it is meaningful that the latest American book to refute and
disprove the fable of the holocaust comes at the same time as the repeated
declarations of Rabbi Ovadia…
We are concerned that these dramatic cries regarding the holocaust, whether
for or against, are intended to cover up the corresponding holocaust, that
which Zionism is now producing with missile and tank, against the Arabs in
The components of this new holocaust are nearly all finalized, and the world
has started following it closely while re-examining the whole story that has
lived more than fifty years, due to the media which carried it and was its
missionary, and not due to its being ‘historical’.
