The Holocaust Story

If the Holocaust was an event in history, it should be open to the routine critical examination to which all other historical events are open. Those who feel it right to argue against the “unique monstrosity” of the Germans should be free to do so. No one should be imprisoned for thought crimes. Contrary to how Hollywood and the Israeli-Firsters have it, the Holocaust story is not about Jews. It’s about Jews and Germans together, inseparable, for all time to come.

Iran's envoy to Portugal questions Holocaust

The West can not stop Holocaust revisionism through persecution and incarceration of revisionists any longer. Iran has demonstrated that the Holocaust is not a taboo subject everywhere in the world. Mohammed Taheri says that it would take 15 years to incinerate 6 million people. For such a comment Germany or Austria would imprison you. How long would it take? Such questions should have answers. The entire Western world supports the Holocaust story through books, memorials, museums, courses. Let's get some straight answers to our questions. And more importantly let's put these ridiculous thought-police out of business. Germany -- stop your Nazi-like tactics and let's defend freedom of speech on all subjects. Free Germar Rudolf and Ernst Zuendel! Austria, free David Irving! Let's stop burning books and let's start a free exchange of ideas. Let's forget the insults and emotions and let's correct the historical myths of the Twentieth Century. Let's understand the actual tragedy of the Holocaust and dispense with the rest. Misleading myths are a barrier to peace and goodwill among nations.

Iran's envoy to Portugal questions Holocaust

LISBON (Reuters) - Iran's ambassador to Portugal told a Portuguese radio interviewer it would have taken the Nazis 15 years to burn the corpses of 6 million people, a remark reflecting the denials of the Holocaust made by his president.

"When I was ambassador in Warsaw, I visited Auschwitz and Birkenau twice and made my calculations," ambassador Mohammed Taheri said in an interview with Portuguese state radio RTP on Tuesday.

"To incinerate 6 million people, 15 years would be necessary," he said.

Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmedinejad has repeatedly denied that the Holocaust, the Nazis' killing of 6 million Jews during World War Two, took place. He has also called for Israel to be "wiped off the map."

More than 1.5 million people, mostly Jews, died at Auschwitz-Birkenau, a death camp set up by Nazi Germany in occupied Poland.

"When our president wants to talk about the Holocaust with historians and scientists, the whole world is against him," Taheri said, referring to plans by Ahmedinejad to organize an academic conference on what happened in the Holocaust.

"Historians need to get together to give their opinions," the envoy added.

Taheri said the publication by European newspapers of cartoons of the Prophet Mohammad, outraging many Muslims and provoking widespread protests, was an Israeli conspiracy designed to cause conflict between Muslims and Christians.

"We think that this is a conspiracy by Zionists who want to put Muslims against Christians in Europe," he said.

Iran's best-selling newspaper, Hamshahri, has responded to the Muslim outrage over published cartoons of the Prophet by organizing a competition for cartoons about the Holocaust, saying it is a test of the West's vaunted freedom of speech.

    If this clown does not know the story (6 million were not and have never been claimed to have been incinerated at Auschwitz), how could he have made the calculations?
