Gaza: a reply to Freeman
It’s like the Holocaust story that way. It’s an immese collection of war stories. I would suspect that most of them would be true, but we know that many of the charges made against the Germans are false, not to say filthy, and cannot be proven to be true, yet continue to be made anyhow. Shamelessly.
I agree with you that “An over focus on things Jewish seems to bring creedance to the negative claims of revisionism's detractors.” Revisionists are in a bind here. A good number of us who have come to see that the orthodox Holocaust story is corrupt through and through had a grudge against Jews to begin with. But those of us who do not have a grudge against Jews are charged with it anyhow as a technique for controlling the story. It works.
With regard to the central issue here: should my post referencing “Gaza—and the rest of it” be on this blog at all, a blog that is to deal with the Holocaust story? I believe it does, in the sense that the Holocaust did not happen in a historical vacum. I’m not an academic specialist. What I understand is that the story was exploited by the Allies to protect themselves from charges of having committed crimes against humanity. It was exploited by Europeans to rewrite the map of Europe. And it was exploited by Israeli-Firsters to morally justify the establishment of a Jewish State on Arab land where the overwhelming majority of those living on it thought it a bad idea.
As a matter of fact, if the story had to do with Germans and Jews alone, I wonder if I would even bother with it? I have not bothered with the Japanese in China. Arab tyranny. The endless conflicts of the Sub-Saharan Africans. And so on. Those stories are not in my face day after day. But the Holocaust story—that’s a different matter. Unlike the other stories, it impacts directly on my everyday life. I am condemned merely for expressing my skepticism about it—or any event in any part of the world that I see has been impacted by the story.
The idea that the modern state of Isreal has no right to exist does not have to be seen as a “conspiracy” theory. I believe it was a mistake, and not morally justified at the time, but it’s there now and I don’t know what to make of it. I see Israel as being a Jewish problem. I see the problem for Americans as being that the U.S. Congress pays for the whole shebang. Why we would do that is beyond me. It appears that Arabs, and an increasing number of others around the planet, see it as beyond them as well.
What I do know is that so long as I express my skepticism about the “gas-chambers,” and thus the heart of the Holocaust invention, I am going to be hounded by those who front for the Holocaust Industry. It would not matter if I were a strong supporter of Israel, and it would not matter if I were a Jew. Or if I never mentioned the word Jew. I would be hounded, slandered, and destroyed for breaking the taboo against open debate on the Holocaust and the impact I believe it has on our daily lives.
Of course, I remain willing to be convinced that I’m wrong about some or all of this.
