REMEMBER THE HOLOCAUST ~ OR ELSE




Norman Finkelstein, The Holocaust Industry: Reflections on the Exploitation of Jewish Suffering. London: Verso, 2000. 150 pages.

THE CREATION OF THE HOLOCAUST RELIGION

Holocaust Guilt ~

We are now all so familiar with Holocaust rhetoric from Jewish organizations that its characteristic audacity can easily pass unnoticed:

When Jews feel and say that Germany and those in Europe who supported, or at least did not oppose the Nazi regime, should never be allowed to forget, events back them up. ~ Anti-Defamation League's Letter From Europe, July 2000.
The number of Germans and other Europeans who "supported the Nazi regime" is by now very small; more than a half-century has passed since Adolf Hitler's death.

So the ADL do not mean, despite the literal sense of the sentence quoted above, that Jews will never allow eighty-year-old Germans to forget their support for National Socialism sixty years ago; nearly all will be dead within the decade.


They really mean young Germans ~ and young Lithuanians, young Croats, young Italians, young Finns etc. The nations themselves, they are saying, should never be allowed to forget, and Jewish organizations like the ADL plan to

make their collective guilt for Nazism
a permanent feature of their national identities.

That much should be obvious. Perhaps it even makes sense. Nations often feel collective pride in their ancestors' achievements; perhaps they should also feel collective shame for their ancestors' crimes.

But there is an additional, very large group that finds itself included in the ADL's program for punitive Holocaust remembering: "those in Europe who did not oppose the Nazi regime."

The ADL are, again obviously, not concerned about eighty-year-old Spaniards or eighty-year-old Swedes or eighty-year-old Swiss "who did not oppose the Nazi regime."

Nor do they mean a French housewife who, sixty years ago, neglected to rescue Jews from the clutches of the German occupiers.

The ADL feels these young German children should live their lives feeling guilt and financially in debt for the Holocaust of their ancestors.

The ADL mean young Frenchmen and young Spaniards and young Swedes and young Swiss. They, too, must always remember.

So you are guilty and must never be allowed to forget, nor should your children be allowed to forget, if your grandfather "supported the Nazi regime"; you are also guilty and must never be allowed to forget, and your children should never be allowed to forget, if your grandfather merely failed to "oppose the Nazi regime."

Not opposing Hitler and supporting Hitler incur the same guilt and the same obligation to remember. That means that most Europeans and their children must never be allowed to forget the Holocaust, and the ADL assume not only their own ability to speak, but also their power to ensure that others listen. If Jews want twenty-year-old Swedes and their children never to forget, their remembering is certain.

What if your grandfather did, in fact, oppose the Nazi regime?

You might at least think that twenty-year-old Americans or Englishmen would be under no obligation to remember perpetually the Holocaust. But if that idle thought briefly crossed your mind, you were mistaken.

Mandatory Holocaust remembering is as pervasive in the United States and Great Britain, nations that fought to destroy National Socialism, as in the nation where it was born.

Why should this unborn child be born guilty and in debt to a deceitful people over something he had nothing to do with? Or made to feel guilty about it? His ancestors FOUGHT the Nazis but that is not enough!

That European Jews were killed not only by Germans but also by "apathy" and "silence" in the United States and Great Britain, the apathy and silence being products of an ingrained "anti-Semitism" that the Anglo-American world shared with its German enemies, is now a standard teaching of Holocaust lore, which treats inaction and collaboration as crude synonyms.

The failure of the Allies to bomb rail lines

leading to Auschwitz, now the subject

of a $40 billion law suit by Jewish

"survivors" against American taxpayers,

is the preferred example of this inaction/collaboration; the failure of the Western democracies to rescue Jews on the St. Louis ~ a failure also, though rarely mentioned, of the Jewish Agency in Palestine ~ is another popular complaint.

Survivors of the Holocaust are suing America for $40 billion for not blowing up the tracks leading to the camp. Considering how many billions already sent to Israel in arms and dollars, as well as a few other issues, this is really chutzpah in action.

The West, all Holocaust promoters agree, either killed Jews in, or failed to rescue Jews from, history's most horrible crime, so the West as a whole stands defined and condemned by both its acts and its inaction, with a mere handful of Righteous Gentiles, the vast majority being decidedly unrighteous, providing rare exceptions that only prove the rule.

"The free and 'civilized' world," Elie Wiesel claims, handed "[the Jews] over to the executioner. There were the killers ~ the murderers ~ and there were those who remained silent." Wiesel invokes here the newly minted crimes of "indifference" and "abandonment."

Jewish Holocaust promoters

now insist the former heroes of

World War II belong to the cast of villains

~ almost as guilty as the Germans they fought.

Nazis and anti-Nazis are conflated, by their shared guilt, into a single category, the former for their crimes against Jews, the latter for their sinful indifference to the crimes.

"The Jews of Europe," Jewish historian Irving Abella writes, "were not so much trapped in a whirlwind of systematic mass murder as they were abandoned to it."

The simple truth, of course, is that Jewish organizations and Jewish historians and Jewish "survivors" want every White Gentile to feel guilt for the Holocaust, so they have invented a series of ad hoc excuses for broadening the class of the "guilty" to include all of us, whatever our grandfathers were doing sixty years ago.

The Holocaust Industry

One of the undeniable strengths of The Holocaust Industry, Norman Finkelstein's often furious denunciation of rapacious Holocaust profiteering, is its demystification, for a mainstream audience, of all this Holocaust lore as nothing more than an instrument of "Jewish aggrandizement" wielded for both political power and profit.

The Holocaust industry of the title is a network of Jewish historians and Jewish institutions that exploits the Holocaust in order to acquire the diverse political benefits that a history of victimhood now offers, in addition to the very substantial pecuniary rewards that Jewish organizations have successfully squeezed from European governments and corporations in what Finkelstein calls "an outright extortion racket."

Holocaust "scholarship" and Holocaust "memory," themselves often funded from the racket's proceeds, are seldom, Finkelstein argues, disinterested historical investigations or politically innocent recollections of Jewish suffering, as their practitioners would have us believe, but are instead expressions of an ideological structure that serves current political interests, principally the Jewish Heimat in Palestine and its Zionist supporters in the United States. German atrocities against Jews are the Holocaust industry's raw material, ethnically self-serving propaganda its finished product.

Prof. Finkelstein identifies two central ideas underlying the Holocaust industry's omnipresent propaganda: "

(1) The Holocaust marks a categorically unique historical event;

(2) The Holocaust marks the climax of an irrational, eternal Gentile hatred of Jews."

The former he dismisses as "intellectually barren and morally discreditable," the latter as a simple fiction, popular among Jews but transparently false. Both dogmas are, however, mutually self-sustaining and jointly they construct a radically ethnocentric world-view, with the Holocaust at its center.

Jews are distinguished from everyone else by virtue of their historical moment of unparalleled suffering, and Gentiles are distinguished from Jews by having nurtured the hatreds that culminated in this moment of unparalleled suffering.

Jews were victims of history's greatest crime, and they have been, over millennia, the objects of the perennial Gentile hatred that eventually caused history's greatest crime.

The entirety of non-Jewish history is therefore indicted. At any moment the unique evil of the Holocaust could have occurred, the hatreds that caused it being perennial, and since the hatreds are entirely irrational, with no relation to antecedent Jewish behavior, Jews bear no responsibility for having in any way provoked them.

"For two thousand years," Elie Wiesel believes, "we were always threatened. For what? For no reason."

The political benefits of Holocaust dogmas are substantial. Cynthia Ozick can explain hostility to Israel by denying the need for an explanation: "The world wants to wipe out the Jews. The world has always wanted to wipe out the Jews."

The incommensurate evil of the Holocaust also offers an esthetically compelling symmetry. Thus Leni Yahil, in her unapologetically Zionist study of The Holocaust, on the establishment of the Jewish State: "Destruction unparalleled in history was contrasted with a creation unparalleled in history."

Anyone who has seen Schindler's List should be familiar with the symmetry: From the black-and-white darkness of the Holocaust, European Jewry emerges into the bright colors of its own Jewish State.

And if, as Wiesel says, Auschwitz represents "the failure of two thousand years of Christian civilization," then each escalation of the preeminent evil that Auschwitz now signifies is an additional indictment of Christian civilization and an additional justification for a Jewish State physically separate from it.

Zionists therefore have an interest in maintaining Holocaust dogmas and in ensuring their dissemination, since the Holocaust helps immunize Jews against criticism in the Diaspora, where they form a vulnerable minority among potentially genocidal majorities, and inhibits criticism of Israel, which serves a permanent refuge for Jews should eliminationist anti-Semites once again attempt unparalleled destruction.

Holocaust Chutzpah

The Holocaust is something different. It is a singular event. It is not simply one example of genocide but a nearly successful attempt on the life of God's chosen children and, thus, on God himself.

Abraham Foxman, National Director of the Anti-Defamation League, writing in the ADL's Frontline, January 1994.

The monetary benefits of Holocaust dogmas are also substantial. Finkelstein's case against Holocash extortion, the core of his book, is detailed and devastating.

No one who has read The Holocaust Industry could fail to find unintended humor in Abraham Foxman's recent claim that Jewish organizations regard the collection of Holocaust reparations as a "sacred mission." Some highlights:

*Holocaust profiteers wildly exaggerated the value of dormant accounts in Swiss banks, the subject of a massive Jewish campaign of national vilification directed against Switzerland, including the fraudulent claim that the banks robbed Jews of as much as $20 billion.

Of the $1.25 billion eventually paid by the Swiss to the World Jewish Congress (WJC), at most only $200 million were genuinely owing, and contradicting the repeated claims of Jewish organizations, the independent Volcker Committee found no evidence that Swiss banks mishandled dormant Jewish accounts.

*Holocaust profiteers, in this case the Simon Wiesenthal Center, falsely charged, in order to assist the extortion racket, that the Swiss interned Jewish refugees in "slave labor camps" during the war. The historical record is clear: They didn't.

*Holocaust profiteers, the WJC and the World Jewish Restitution Organization, have formally agreed to exclude Israeli banks from their extortion campaign, even though they also hold dormant Holocaust-era accounts. Finkelstein comments: "The writ of these Jewish organizations thus runs to Switzerland but not to the Jewish state."

Further: "The most sensational charge leveled against the Swiss banks was that they required death certificates from the heirs of Nazi holocaust victims. Israeli banks have also demanded such documentation. One searches in vain, however, for denunciations of the 'perfidious Israelis.'"

*Holocaust profiteers launched their recent campaign for compensation in the name of "needy survivors," but most of the money that they have thus far extorted is destined for the coffers of Jewish organizations and will be spent to fund more Holocaust education and Holocaust memorials and Holocaust studies, like much of the more than $61 billion in reparations already paid by Germany prior to the current round of extortion.

Tellingly, "survivors" themselves,

familiar with the institutional greed

of their self-appointed spokesmen,

prefer to be paid directly

by the German government.

*Holocaust profiteer Edgar Bronfman, head of the WJC, "movingly testified before the House Banking Committee that the Swiss should not 'be allowed to make a profit from the ashes of the Holocaust.'

On the other hand, Bronfman recently acknowledged that the WJC treasury has amassed no less than 'roughly $7 billion' in compensation monies."

*Holocaust profiteers have regularly inflated the number of Jewish "slave laborers" in order to extort additional money from European corporations.

And since each increase in the number of Jewish "slave laborers" alive today logically requires a corresponding decrease in the number of Jews who died in German concentration camps, the Holocaust industry is practicing its own mercenary version of "Holocaust denial."

If Jewish claims for compensation are correct, then the Holy Six Million figure must be false. Finkelstein quotes his mother, herself interned at Majdanek:

"If everyone who claims

to be a survivor actually is one,

who did Hitler kill?"

Or as David Irving once put it:

"Another Holocaust victim is born every day."

*Holocaust profiteers falsely claimed that former "slave laborers" never received compensation from Germany, although they were "covered under the original agreements with Germany compensating concentration-camp inmates" and have received payments amounting to the equivalent of $1 billion in contemporary currency.

"Still, 50 years later the Holocaust industry was demanding money for 'needy Holocaust victims' who had been living in poverty because Germans allegedly never compensated them."

*Holocaust profiteer Elie Wiesel demands a minimum lecture fee of $25,000, as well as a chauffeured limousine.

Finkelstein concludes: "The current campaign of the Holocaust industry to extort money from Europe in the name of 'needy Holocaust victims' has shrunk the moral stature of their martyrdom to that of a Monte Carlo casino."
Finkelstein on Elie Wiesel

For Wiesel ... the Holocaust is effectively a "mystery" religion. Thus Wiesel intones that the Holocaust "leads into darkness," "negates all answers," "lies outside, if not beyond, history," "defies both knowledge and description," "cannot be explained nor visualized," is "never to be comprehended or transmitted," marks a "destruction of history" and a "mutation on a cosmic scale."

Only the survivor-priest (read: only Wiesel) is qualified to divine its mystery. And yet, the Holocaust's mystery, Wiesel avows, is "noncommunicable"; "we cannot even talk about it."

Thus, for his standard fee of $25,000 (plus chauffeured limousine), Wiesel lectures that the "secret" of Auschwitz's "truth lies in silence."

Although most prominent ideologies have, for good or ill, been subjected from the anti-Western Left to analysis of the political interests they serve, the Jewish Holocaust, which now looms over a host of what should be entirely unrelated subjects, has hitherto been exempt, largely as a result of the Holocaust industry's successful campaign to theologize Jewish suffering, transforming it from concrete events at a particular time into an a historical object of religious reverence, replete with taboos that few outside the Racial Right dare violate.

Finkelstein's marked lack of deference to conventional Holocaust pieties and the rules of Holocaust correctness intentionally desacralizes the Holocaust in order to deprive its exploiters of the aura of sanctity that shields their schemes from scrutiny.

In this objective he shares something in common with the revisionist Robert Faurisson, who has debunked "the religion of the Holocaust" for more than two decades.

Yet tactical taboo violation does not demonstrate disbelief in the religion of which the taboos form a part. Finkelstein, as we shall see, shares the faith and therefore objects to those who would abuse it.

But many of his Holocaust convictions are indistinguishable from those of the Holocaust industry he attacks, and his "radical" critique of Holocaust orthodoxy ends up restating some of its most important dogmas in an only marginally less pernicious form.

There is an obvious lesson in this. If as a society we delegate to Jews, as in effect we have done, the job of explaining criticism of Jews, we should not be surprised that the answers they arrive at have little to do with themselves and much to do with us.

The most popular of their answers ~ that the source of anti-Semitism is our irrational hate ~ was predictable before the investigation ever began, given the ethnic composition of the class of experts eligible to conduct it.

Similarly, if in mainstream discourse the charge of anti-Semitism remains so devastating that only Jews can safely attack Holocash extortion, we can anticipate that Jewish biases may affect the character of the attack, given the practical impossibility of anyone other than a Jew launching it.

There is much of value in The Holocaust Industry, but much also that reflects an internal ethnic squabble among Jews in which, predictably, crucial Holocaust premises remain uncontested.

Discovering the Holocaust

Once upon a time, not so long ago, the suffering of European Jewry during the Second World War lacked a name. It was just suffering, terminologically indistinguishable from, say, the suffering of Ukrainian peasants during Stalinist collectivization, or even the suffering of German civilians at the hands of the Red Army.

The suffering of an American soldier crippled on D-Day, the suffering of a Jew starved at Bergen-Belsen, and the suffering of a German woman crucified on a barn door all belonged to the same broad generic category of wartime deaths and wartime suffering.

In the Western democracies historians and the public at large paid, naturally enough, more attention to first two than to the latter, more attention to our suffering than to theirs, but

no one believed that ours deserved a special name.

Beginning in the 1960s, during the course of the Civil Rights Revolution, that changed. One group, until then numbered on our side, the Jews, began to distinguish their suffering from everyone else's.

Jews in Israel had, in fact, already defined their wartime suffering as distinctively un-Gentile by assigning it a special Hebrew name, and with remarkable forethought the Jewish National Fund in pre-Zionist Palestine had already started plans, in 1942, for a memorial to this "Shoah" ("Catastrophe").

This was later to become the Yad Vashem Museum, before most of the events the memorial would memorialize had actually occurred. But in the Diaspora Jewish suffering, correctly or not, was still only suffering, and Jewish deaths, from among the more than fifty million who died during the war, were still only deaths.

"Holocaust," the English version of "Shoah," was first deployed to describe distinctively Jewish suffering during the 1961 Eichmann trial in Jerusalem, a trial consciously conducted as an educational enterprise.

It was not until the late 1960s that "Holocaust" began its ascent into public consciousness in the English-speaking world, propelled by a steadily growing number of essays and books bearing the term, most authored by Jews.

In 1968 the Library of Congress replaced "World War, 1939-1945 ~ Jews" with "Holocaust, Jewish (1939-1945)"; in 1978 the influential television mini-series Holocaust appeared, watched by almost a hundred million Americans, its advertising financed by Jewish organizations; and in the same year President Carter established a commission, chaired by professional "survivor" Elie Wiesel, to create a national museum in Washington memorializing Jewish suffering in Europe.

Holocaust remembering accelerated rapidly in the decade that followed, and by 1991 Rabbi Michael Berenbaum, then project director of the Holocaust Memorial Museum, could boast, accurately, that

World War II was merely a

"background story" to the Holocaust.

The contrary view, that the Holocaust was a footnote ("point de détail") to the war, is now illegal in France and much of Europe, as the French nationalist leader Jean-Marie Le Pen discovered.

The old view of World War II

has not only been supplanted;

in some countries

it has literally been criminalized.

Judeocentric History

The Holocaust was [once] regarded as a side story of the much larger story of World War II. Now one thinks of World War II as a background story and the Holocaust as a foreground story.

Rabbi Michael Berenbaum, former project and research director of the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum, quoted in the Washington Times, January 10, 1991.

The Jewish Holocaust was a run-of-the-mill horror in a century that saw many horrors, no worse than the Armenian holocaust, or the Cambodian holocaust, or the Russian holocaust, or the Rwandan holocaust, or the Ukrainian holocaust, and arguably no worse, at the level of individual suffering, than the Palestinian naqba.

If any of us had a choice between spending three months in Auschwitz, the duration of Elie Wiesel's internment, or fifty years in a Palestinian refugee camp, only a fool would choose the latter.

Whose suffering gets publicly commemorated is a political decision based not on the magnitude of the suffering but on the political lessons that the commemorators hope to privilege.

Different suffering teaches different lessons. The Jewish Holocaust can plausibly teach the dangers of race-cultural self-assertion on the part of majorities and the attendant moral obligation to respect minority differences.

The Ukrainian holocaust could plausibly teach much different lessons: the murderous results of internationalist attempts to eradicate national loyalties, as well as the hatred that a certain unassimilated minority often feels for its host populations.

Everyone has heard of Adolf Eichmann and almost no one has heard of Lazar Kaganovich because as a society we judge the first set of lessons preferable to the second.

There should be no real mystery why this occurred. Holocaust education in the public schools, Holocaust Studies programs at most major universities, a Week of Holocaust Remembrance in mid-April, annual Holocaust commemorations in fifty states, a Holocaust Museum on the Washington Mall, Holocaust documentary after Holocaust documentary, Holocaust film after Holocaust film ~ all testify either to the absolutely unprecedented character of Jewish suffering during World War II, a suffering that dwarfs all pseudo-holocausts into pitiable insignificance, or else to the power of Jews to foist their racial agenda on White Gentiles.

Since the first alternative should be unthinkable ~ the death-tolls of Soviet and Chinese Marxism were twenty million and sixty-five million respectively, according to the Black Book ~ no one can seriously discuss contemporary "Holocaust mania" without also discussing Jewish power.

Finkelstein has, however, no intention of discussing Jewish power, and he resolves the problem, in his own mind, by recourse to a fantasy common across the mainstream political spectrum, from Rush Limbaugh on the Right to Noam Chomsky on the Left ~ the fantasy of Israel as a valuable strategic resource, "a proxy for US power in the Middle East" necessary to ensure cheap oil and docile Muslims.

Because the Holocaust deflects legitimate criticism of the Jewish State, Finkelstein argues, incessant remembering of the Holocaust also serves American foreign-policy objectives.

It is difficult even to conceive how this Israeli proxy is supposed to function, and there is no evidence that it does function, witness the price of oil, a devastating oil embargo in the 1970s, and the conspicuously undocile Muslim terrorists who now regularly attack Americans.

But the proxy's phantom existence enables Finkelstein and some others on the Left to identify their anti-Zionism as a species of anti-Americanism. Leftist criticism of Israel becomes de facto criticism of American geopolitical objectives.

The latter are, Finkelstein imagines, really responsible for the billions shipped annually to Israel, and Zionist lobby groups in Washington, motivated not by distinctively Jewish group loyalty but by the raceless pursuit their own political agendas, are only the willing facilitators, "marching in lock-step with American power."

The unexamined assumption ~ that support for Israel benefits the United States ~ remains unexamined. No one need discuss Jewish power, Finkelstein has convinced himself, because Jewish power is only a useful tool in the hands of much more powerful non-Jewish "ruling elites."

America's apparently Israel-first Middle East policy, far from indicating the ability of Jewish lobby groups to distort the democratic political process for their own ethnocentric purposes, as an unexpert could easily delude himself into believing, actually reflects the opposite, the absence of any significant, racially self-interested Jewish power.Zionist Jews still must remain beholden to their Gentile wire-pullers.

Finkelstein accordingly locates the beginning of frantic Holocaust remembering precisely in June of 1967, when American Jewry and the non-Jewish ruling elites who control U.S. foreign policy first recognized the geostrategic value of Israel, in the wake of the Jewish State's unexpected victory over its Arab neighbors.

Jewish elites became "the natural interlocutors for America's newest strategic asset," a role that offered them access to real political power, until then denied to Jews. They would abandon Israel and the Holocaust propaganda that helps sustain it the moment that Israel ceased to be, in the eyes of their Gentile benefactors, a valuable surrogate for Imperial America, since their Zionism and their awakened Holocaust memory are not the result of racial emotions, but only of unsentimental political calculation.

The argument cannot be taken seriously, but absent clairvoyant insights into the minds of the amorphous Jewish elites Finkelstein alludes to, it would be hard to disprove. We can only say that it does not adequately explain actual Jewish behavior.

Why, for example, would Jewish elites, in this instance nameable elites, repeatedly agitate for the release of Jonathan Pollard? They derive no political benefit from it, and they run the considerable political risk of irritating non-Jews, most of whom still regard treason as a serious offense.

The simplest answer is the most convincing: Pollard is a Jew who spied on non-Jews for the benefit of the Jewish State, and Jewish elites feel racial loyalty toward him both as a fellow Jew and as an Israeli spy. They are therefore willing to take political risks, with no hope of political benefits, to secure his release.

Or consider the example of Neal Sher, former "nazi-hunter" for the Office of Special Investigations, later head of AIPAC, the chief Zionist lobby group in Washington.When Sher declares that

"every Jew alive today is a Holocaust survivor,"

the commonsense assumption that he is asserting, comically but nevertheless with complete sincerity, his emotional solidarity with the Holocaust's Jewish victims plausibly accounts for both his former profession and the ruthlessness with which he and his fellow Jewish "nazi-hunters" have pursued it.

Deporting octogenarians to face Communist kangaroo courts during the Cold War, arranging tragi-comic trials in which senile alleged "war criminals" testify incoherently from their hospital beds, illegally suppressing exculpatory evidence in the Demjanjuk case, threatening impoverished East European countries with economic penalties, and so forth.

Again the political risks are real, as Jews visibly exploit Gentile institutions to exact racial vengeance on their enemies from a half-century ago. Give the devil his due: The hatreds of Sher and his ilk are genuine, not tactical.

Most Diaspora Jews, as their actual behavior plainly demonstrates, do have a strong emotional attachment to their Jewish State, and most also have a strong emotional attachment to their politicized interpretation of the Holocaust.

Finkelstein's implausible thesis was necessary, from his perspective, only because the fact, if openly acknowledged, of strong Jewish racial loyalties will inevitably lead anyone who thinks seriously about the political abuse of the Holocaust to anti-Semitic conclusions.

Incessant Holocaust promotion by Jews has some obvious ulterior motives, none of which has anything to do with American foreign-policy objectives: to delegitimize nationalism within majority-White nations; to legitimize Jewish nationalism in the Jewish State; to immunize Jews from criticism; to extract money from Germany, the United States, Switzerland, etc.

Holocaust remembering is, in short, part of a racially self-interested agenda ~ it helps Jews and hurts us.

The Lessons of the Holocaust

The Jewish Holocaust, we are told endlessly, teaches universal "lessons," and there are now taxpayer-funded Holocaust museums throughout the West, along with an extensive miseducational apparatus, designed to impart these supposedly crucial "lessons," applicable (so we are instructed) to everyone everywhere.

But the principal "lesson" that the Holocaust teaches is, undoubtedly, the lethal consequences of any racial or national consciousness among Whites. Because White racialism and intolerance and nationalism led to the Holocaust, White racialism and intolerance and nationalism must be eradicated, to avoid future holocausts.

In terms of practical politics a politician who opposes Third World immigration on racial or even on cultural grounds has failed to learn the "lessons of the Holocaust"; the largely successful Jewish campaigns to tag Patrick Buchanan and Jörg Haider with the "Nazi" label/libel are recent cases in point.

The Holocaust Museum in Washington announced its anti-White objectives early on, even before its construction: "This museum belongs at the center of American life because America, as a democratic civilization, is the enemy of racism and its ultimate expression, genocide."

Genocide is, according to Jewish Holocaust lore, the natural outcome of any racial self-assertion by people of European descent, and American democracy is, by Jewish fiat, devoted to the extirpation of every vestige of our racial consciousness. That, not surprisingly, is what organized Jewry has wanted all along, as Kevin MacDonald has thoroughly documented.

Israel Celebrates DiversityIn theory, the "lessons of the Holocaust" should teach Jews that Israel cannot ethically remain an explicitly Jewish state, committed to the preservation and advancement of a single Volk, rooted in land, tradition and blood, but must instead become a multiracial "state of its citizens," bound together only by abstract political principles and an eagerness to celebrate diversity, like the nation-less anti-nations most Diaspora Jews now demand that their host populations become.

In practice, needless to say, few Jews and no major Jewish organizations allow logical consistency and the lessons of the Holocaust to interfere with their racial self-interest.

On the contrary: "The heart of every authentic response to the Holocaust," writes philosopher Emil Fackenheim, "... is a commitment to the autonomy and security of the State of Israel."

Whereas in Israel Jews have formed a Jewish State for themselves and permit no one but Jews to immigrate into it, not even the Palestinian Arabs they ejected in 1948, in the Diaspora they campaign for multiculturalism and Third World immigration.

Jews hate all nationalisms save their own; they are nationalists within Israel, but anti-nationalists everywhere else.

A Holocaust Scholar Solves the Serb Problem
The vast majority of the Serbs are animated by a particularly virulent variant of the nationalism characteristic of Western civilization.

***

The majority of the Serbian people, by supporting or condoning Milosevic's eliminationist politics, have rendered themselves both legally and morally incompetent to conduct their own affairs.... Essentially, their country must be placed in receivership.

Daniel Jonah Goldhagen, Harvard Holocaustologist, ardent Zionist, writing in The New Republic, May 17, 1999. The full text, which instructively applies the "lessons of the Holocaust" to sanction NATO's humanitarian bombing of Yugoslavia, is online at the TNR website. For the "nazification" of the Serbs see (off-site) Marjaleena Repo and Isabel Vincent.

Broad Jewish support for Zionism in Israel, coupled with strident opposition to any form of racialism or nationalism in the Diaspora, is the defining hypocrisy of contemporary Jewry.

Finkelstein, like the late Israel Shahak, is not guilty of it. He is a principled man: He opposes racialism in the United States, so he also opposes it in Israel. Yet he is apparently unaware of, or unwilling to acknowledge, his own anti-racialist debt to the "shelves upon shelves of [Holocaust] shlock" under whose weight American libraries are currently groaning.

What has been, beyond any doubt, the most politically significant lesson of the Holocaust, the evil of White "racism," is almost completely absent from his text, appearing only in two sentences in the final chapter:

Seen through the lens of Auschwitz, what previously was taken for granted ~ for example, bigotry ~ no longer can be. In fact, it was the Nazi holocaust that discredited the scientific racism that was so pervasive a feature of American intellectual life before World War II.
Auschwitz did not, of course, scientifically discredit scientific racism, but it is certainly true that the academic study of racial differences has been discredited by its association with German National Socialism, although the facts themselves remain indifferent to the lessons of the Holocaust.

It is also true that "bigotry is no longer taken for granted," but this bland summary of the sea-change in post-war attitudes to race requires a translation.

Finkelstein, like most multiracialists, believes that the majority-White nations of the West are still riddled, from top to bottom, with bigotry and systemic "racism." The fight against White "racism" has scarcely begun; the lessons of the Holocaust have only taught us that bigotry should no longer be taken for granted.

An unwillingness to acknowledge their own impressive victories is a common characteristic of anti-White ideologues. The near absence of American borders does not inhibit Chicano activists from angrily denouncing the alleged "racism" of the small remnant that remains; the presence of a massive system of mandated racial discrimination directed against Whites does not inhibit "civil rights" activists from angrily denouncing (statistically nonexistent) "institutional racism" allegedly directed against Blacks.

Anti-racialist campaigns need a perpetual state of emergency to eliminate the cultural toxin of "racism," but the scarcity of the toxin only escalates demands for more emergency measures.

Demands for further Euro-American capitulation are invariably presented as though no significant capitulation has yet occurred. Whites have foolishly divested themselves of their former racial consciousness, but they receive no credit for their new racelessness, only more vilification.

Thus in the midst of a culture soaked in White guilt, Finkelstein recommends more of the same, while presenting his proposals as part of a radical assault on a conservative Holocaust Establishment too timid to berate the goyim with the severity they deserve.

"We could," he says, "learn much about ourselves from the Nazi experience," and he helpfully suggests additional atrocities that we might, if so inclined, also commemorate: European "genocide" in the Americas; American atrocities during the Vietnam war; Jewish and American enslavement of Blacks; murderous Belgian exploitation of the Congo.

All of these suggestions for atrocity commemoration have a feature in common that should not be too difficult to discern, and with the likely exception of the last, each could be dutifully recited by any well-indoctrinated schoolboy, thanks to multicultural miseducation.

Finkelstein has further suggestions. We could also contemplate, while learning much about ourselves from the Nazi experience, how "Manifest Destiny anticipated nearly all the ideological and programmatic elements of Hitler's Lebensraum policy"; how German eugenics programs, commonly regarded as precursors of the Jewish Holocaust, merely followed American precedents; how the Nuremberg Laws were a milder variant of the Southern prohibition of miscegenation; how "the vaunted western tradition is deeply implicated in Nazism as well," Plato and Rousseau being the proto-Nazis Finkelstein has in mind. Clearly, learning from the Nazi experience means learning to see the Nazi in ourselves and in our history.

Here Finkelstein's self-described radical critique of Holocaust orthodoxies has a parasitical relation to what it purports to debunk, tacitly relying on alleged Holocaust uniqueness in order construct a tenuous guilt-by-association which would be laughable in any other context.

Hitler opposed "birth control on the ground that it preempts natural selection"; Rousseau said something similar. Most American states once had eugenics laws sanctioning the sterilization of mental defectives; the Nazis had similar laws. Leo Strauss called this form of non-reasoning the reductio ad Hitlerum.

We are expected to see, and unfortunately most Whites will indeed see, not discrete ethical issues but a sinister pattern that establishes culpability. Yet the sinister pattern of culpability only exists if the Holocaust remains, on account of its unparalleled evil, the terminus toward which all of Western history was directed; the pattern ceases to exist if the Holocaust is dislodged from its position high atop a hierarchy of suffering.

Substitute the Judeo-Bolshevik slaughter of Ukrainians for the Jewish Holocaust and you will also select a different set of sign-posts leading to a different unparalleled evil.

Since Finkelstein does not practice what he preaches, avoiding the implications of his own call to democratize suffering, his preferred Holocaust lessons turn out, as we have seen, to be not much different from the anti-racialist lessons that Holocaust promoters already teach.

Elie Wiesel would have no objection to most of Finkelstein's pedagogy of White guilt, though he would of course insist that Jews need not be among its pupils.

White guilt is a given for both; they differ only on how we should best commemorate it and on whether Jews should be included among the group to whom the requisite lessons must be addressed.

We are, Finkelstein and Wiesel agree, morally obliged to "confront" and "remember" Nazi crimes, even though the confronting and remembering will be "difficult" and "painful," because we were somehow complicit in them, and in this both articulate what is now surely the core dogma of Holocaust propaganda.

"[To] study the Holocaust," says Marcia Sachs Littell, director of the National Academy for Holocaust and Genocide Teacher Training, "is also to study the pathology of Western civilization and its flawed structures." Rabbi Eliezer Berkovits, Holocaust theologian, goes further: "The guilt of Germany is the guilt of the West. The fall of Germany is the fall of the West. Not only six million Jews perished in the Holocaust. In it Western civilization lost its claim to dignity and respect."

Such expressions of anti-Western animus, routine in Jewish Holocaust writing, would be very difficult to reconcile with Finkelstein's account of the genesis of Holocaust remembering, namely that organized Jewry "forgot" the Holocaust throughout the 1950s and then, in order to become valued participants in American statecraft, tactically "remembered" it in 1967, so that "Jews now stood on the front lines defending America ~ indeed, 'Western civilization' ~ against the retrograde Arab hordes."

Anti-Western animus is, on the other hand, very easy to explain within the socio-political context of the decade when, by all accounts, the Holocaust received its English name and began its ascent into popular consciousness. American Jewry's decision to remember the Holocaust was dependent on White America's willingness to listen.

A speaker normally presupposes an auditor, and vocal Holocaust remembering likewise presupposes receptive Holocaust listening. Jews had no intention in the 1960s and they have no intention now of remembering their Holocaust in the absence of a non-Jewish audience.

American Jews conveniently recovered their forgotten Holocaust memory at the very historical moment when racial victimization in the past began to confer political power in the present. The religion of the Holocaust was the Jewish version of anti-White identity politics.

To number yourself among the wretched of the earth was a source of political power during the Civil Rights Revolution, and it continued to be a source of political power in the decades that followed.

Jews had played an instrumental role in fomenting the Revolution, and by remembering the Holocaust they enlisted themselves, citing an impeccable pedigree of suffering at the hands of Whites, among the minority groups eligible to receive its moral capital, while relieving themselves of membership, largely nominal in any case, in the White oppressor race, against whom the Revolution was and still is directed.

Through the Holocaust the most successful ethnic group in American history not only joined the various aggrieved minorities staking out a claim against the Euro-American majority, but also pushed itself to the front of the line.

Since Jews are more intelligent and much more politically powerful than other aggrieved minorities, they have elevated their wartime victimization above all other victimizations, while surrounding it with a deceptive, often eloquent language of humane universalism.

The Jewish victims of the Holocaust, philosopher Paul Ricoeur writes, are "delegates to our memory of all the victims of history," a formulation which in practice means that all of history's other victims can be safely ignored or consigned to a small, dark corner in your local Holocaust museum, being somehow included in the representative suffering of the Jews.

Thus this exceptional piece of Holocaust lore from Yad Vashem's Avner Shalev: "We add our voice to those who believe that the Holocaust, because of its Jewish specificity, should serve as a model in the global fight against the dangers of racism, anti-Semitism, ethnic hatred and genocide."

The sentence is logically incoherent but its meaning is clear: Jewish specificity ensures universality. And the political subtext is also clear: In the holy war against "racism," one race of victims is far more equal than the rest.

Jewish Self-Segregation

In the famous film footage of the liberation of Bergen-Belsen, a British soldier, a kind of Everyman Tommy, states the Allied consensus at the time: "When you actually see a place like this ... you know what we are fighting for."

Surveying the same evidence, General Ira Eaker, of the United States Eighth Air Force, drew a similar conclusion: "Let any doubter, in all the generations to come, contemplate what it would be like to live in a world dominated by Hitler, the Japanese warlords, or any other cruel dictator or despot."

Neither the British soldier nor General Eaker saw in the corpses of Belsen the pathology of our vaunted Western Civilization, or the consequences of American eugenics laws and LebensraumWe, the civilized democracies, had just defeated them, the cruel dictatorships.

Belsen and the other camps showed conclusively what we had just saved the world from. The average Mississippi Klansman would have concurred. policies, or (in Wiesel's words) the "shameful legacy" of pre-war immigration quotas, or the moral imperative to celebrate racial diversity.

Neither would have accepted any of the preceding even if a helpful "Holocaust educator" had patiently explained them all; neither would have understood what the "Holocaust educator" was talking about.

German Propaganda PosterThere were serious errors in this triumphalist vision of the war. A cruel despot, in fact history's cruelest despot, Joseph Stalin, had been the main beneficiary, and the Red Army, even as the British soldier was speaking, were in the process of liberating Eastern Europe in the name of Soviet Marxism, raping and murdering as they liberated.

A war that had nominally begun to prevent a historically German city, Danzig, from rejoining the German Reich, as most of its citizens wanted, had ended with not only Danzig but all of Eastern Europe in the hands of the Communists.

And Belsen itself, which supplies our visual impressions of what the Holocaust "looked like," happens to be among the German concentration camps that most clearly fit the revisionist thesis: that the bulk of deaths in the camps, and the emaciated bodies that form the Holocaust's compelling iconography, were the result not of a program of deliberate extermination but of dislocations, caused by Allied bombing, in the final months of the war. [Image: German propaganda poster ~ "Danzig is German."]

But the triumphalist consensus was culturally benign, at least for those nations that had fought on the winning side. It said something good about ourselves, and it dignified the many lives that the war had needlessly cost. The consensus should have served Jewish interests as well.

Anti-Semitism was a distinctive vice of the cruel German dictatorship that the democratic Allies had just defeated, and it was therefore delegitimized, just as fascism and national socialism were delegitimized.

Significantly, the first two Hollywood films attacking anti-Semitism, Crossfire and The Gentleman's Agreement, both appeared in 1947, the latter receiving an Academy Award for Best Picture.

The war's aftermath offered a didactic opportunity to define anti-Semitism as incompatible with the West's highest ideals, which Allied soldiers had supposedly shed their blood defending.

With Hitler's defeat the enemies of the Jews were placed outside our Civilization, which should have encouraged Jews to curtail their frequent efforts to subvert it.

The Jewish group decision to shape their Holocaust memory into an indictment of Western "anti-Semitism" and "racism" ~ our "pathology" ~ was a calculated repudiation of post-war triumphalism.

The Jewish Holocaust, as it emerged from the burgeoning identity politics of the 1960s, blurred and even effaced what had formerly been a clear distinction between themus, cruel dictatorships and civilized democracies, and it set Jewry apart from both.

There were now, in Wiesel's analysis, "murderers" and "those who remained silent" on one side, and innocent Jews on the other, a much different binary opposition that allows no place for the exploits of the formerly heroic Allies.

The corollary of this intense ethnocentrism is the doctrine of the world's criminal "abandonment" of the Jews, a doctrine that distinguishes Jews from everyone else, to the detriment of the latter. "The world," we recall, "has always wanted to wipe out the Jews," which is another way of saying that Jews owe loyalty to nobody but themselves.

Jerzy Kosinski's Painted Bird, published in 1965, two years before the Six Day War, can stand in small for the larger issues. Protected by Polish peasants during the brutal German occupation, Kosinski nevertheless chose, when he came to pen his fictionalized Holocaust memoirs, to nazify his Catholic protectors, transforming them into hate-filled anti-Semites, like all the novel's other Poles, who subject the six-year-old protagonist to a series of fanciful sadistic barbarities, none of which ever occurred.

Kosinski's own real-world experience in occupied Poland, a life of comparative comfort among the Poles he would later vilify, should have led him to endorse the Allied interpretation of the war: on one side cruel Germans, on the other us, the cruel Germans' victims, both Poles and Jews.

Nothing in that structure detracted from the alleged uniqueness of the Jewish Holocaust; nothing in it would have limited Kosinski's artistic license. He was free to invent as many bogus atrocities as he wanted, so long as he attributed them to Germans, not Poles.

Yet Kosinski chose instead, in what can only be interpreted as a deliberate act of racial aggression, to nazify the war's first anti-Nazis, at the price of radically distorting his own experience.

The alleged "pathology of Western Civilization," with the Holocaust as its foremost symptom, has been constructed incrementally by a series of similar choices in which Jews, Norman Finkelstein among them, have broadened what was previously the specific evil of the Nazis into the general evil of the West, so that, as German historian Ernst Nolte puts it, "homo hitlerensis ultimately appears as merely a special case of homo occidentalis."

Just as Jews are representative victims, so all Euro-folk, assuming the role once assigned to Germans alone, are representative perpetrators.

We, including the descendants of World War II's victors, are now potential Nazis who are capable, if not for anti-racialist training and regular visits to Holocaust museums, of repeating uniquely evil Nazi crimes.

Unique Nazi evil has been expanded to include all of us, without suffering any diminution in the process.

Teaching the lessons of White guilt

has been a long-standing mission

of Jewish propagandists.

The potential Nazi lurking behind the conventional American hero was the barely concealed subject of Crossfire, which introduced to the screen a radically new character who would be immediately recognized by a modern audience, the pathological White hate criminal, in this case a superficially normal veteran, a police officer before the war, who gratuitously murders

A jew;.Dore Schary, producer of Crossfire, later became the national chairman of the ADL, thus making a seamless personal transition from cultural to explicitly political Jewish activism.

Crossfire was an early attempt to "learn much about ourselves from the Nazi experience," and contrary to Finkelstein, there is no shortage of such educational opportunities today.

Recent Holocaust promoters, emboldened by our current affection for racial self-flagellation, have simply ascribed to Western man in general the pathology which their less ambitious forebears confined to lone madmen.

Insofar as we accept, as far too many of us do, the false moral burden to feel racial guilt over ("learn much about ourselves from") German wartime atrocities, real and fictional, we have internalized Jewish ethnocentrism.

IN THE MATTER OF THE HOLOCAUST

WE HAVE BEEN TAUGHT TO SEE OURSELVES

THROUGH JEWISH EYES .

We should therefore learn our own "lesson of the Holocaust" ~ that the descendants of both the winners and the losers of the Second World War now have a common interest in repudiating the old mythology of unique Nazi evil, along with the anti-Western Holocaust industry which has fastened itself on it.

  1. in re: holocaust post.

    its not surprising that people who are jewish are profiting from the holocaust. the holocaust is a lucrative business spawning movies, books, entire curricula for every major higher-ed institution across the globe, lecture deals, etc etc ad nauseum.

    that zionists have exploited the holocaust is also not surprising...they are colonizers in every sense of the word but (like using the race card) have a major ace in the hole: the holocaust.

    jews arent saints by virtue of being victimized. blacks, american indians, women etc, all have histories of being victims; but it is zionists who have had the real genius of profiting from it to the nth degree, engaging in crimes against humanity and being shielded from responsibility by the holocaust. its depressing and disgusting, but not shocking that some people have hijacked something tragic for their own self promotion.

    that being said, yes we should remember the holocaust. it should be a part of the common narrative, just as the american indian holocaust should....but is there an american indian holocaust museum in the nations capitol? no theres a pretty little thing called the NMAI that claims to be about american indians and AI culture but has NOTHING in it about the holocaust theyve endured for 500 years....and its a just a few blocks from the holocaust museum.

    ask yourself: why would the board of directors at the holocaust museum & smithsonian not allow a museum for american indians that documented the horrors, perversities and crimes AIs have endured since contact?

The genius of the United States of America is Christian in the broadest sense, and its destiny is to remain Christian.

Don’t you get it? the God in the OT is a monster, is another one of the many Gods in the dessert, those sacrifices offered to God are Satanic as their name and the Jews keep offering sacrifices to their God.

"Himself a Jew, Marx has around him, in London and France, but especially in Germany, a multitude of more or less clever, scheming, agile, speculating Jews ~ such as Jews are everywhere: commercial or banking agents, writers, politicians, reporters for newspapers of all shades, with one foot in the bank and the other in the socialist movement, and with their arses sitted upon the German daily press ~ they have taken possession of all the newspapers ~ and you can imagine what kind of sickening literature they produce. Now, this entire Jewish world, which glut a single profiteering sect, a nation of blooksuckers, a single gluttonous parasite closely and intimately interlinked not only across national borders, but across all differences of political opinion ~ this Jewish world today stands for the most part at the disposal of Marx and, at the same time, at the disposal of Rothschild.

This may seem strange. What can there be in common between Communism and the largest banks? Ho-ho!

WHAT TALMUDICS THINK

Historically, Jews had always thrived in nations and empires with multicultural, pluralistic and tolerant environments, while they fared badly in strong ethnic or nationalistic societies. European Jews have always been the emblematic stranger or ‘other’. Therefore, by definition, a society where the stranger is welcome is good for the Jews, although they have not always appreciated this link. The future of European Jewry is dependent on our ability to shape a multicultural, pluralistic and diverse society. ~ Göran Rosenberg, Jewish author and journalist

**********

American Jews are committed to cultural tolerance because of their belief ~ one firmly rooted in history ~ that Jews are safe only in a society acceptant of a wide range of attitudes and behaviors, as well as a diversity of religious and ethnic groups. It is this belief, for example, not approval of homosexuality, that leads an overwhelming majority of U.S. Jews to endorse ‘gay rights’ and to take a liberal stance on most other so-called ‘social’ issues. ~ Charles Silberman, Jewish writer and journalist

REVENGE OF THE JEWISH RABBIS OF SPAIN
In 1492 CE, Chemor, chief Rabbi of Spain, wrote to the Grand Sanhedrin, which had its seat in Constantinople, for advice, when a Spanish law threatened expulsion (after the fall of Muslim rule in spain).

This was the reply:

” Beloved brethren in Moses, we have received your letter in which you tell us of the anxieties and misfortunes which you are enduring. We are pierced by as great pain to hear it as yourselves. The advice of the Grand Satraps and Rabbis is the following:

1. As for what you say that the King of Spain obliges you to become Christians: do it, since you cannot do otherwise.
2. As for what you say about the command to despoil you of your property: make your sons merchants that they may despoil, little by little, the Christians of theirs.
3. As for what you say about making attempts on your lives: make your sons doctors and apothecaries, that they may take away Christians’ lives.
4. As for what you say of their destroying your synagogues: make your sons canons and clerics in order that they may destroy their churches. [Emphasis mine]
5. As for the many other vexations you complain of: arrange that your sons become advocates and lawyers, and see that they always mix in affairs of State, that by putting Christians under your yoke you may dominate the world and be avenged on them.
6. Do not swerve from this order that we give you, because you will find by experience that, humiliated as you are, you will reach the actuality of power.

(Signed) PRINCE OF THE JEWS OF CONSTANTINOPLE.”
------------ --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- --------- ----
The reply is found in the sixteenth century Spanish book, La Silva Curiosa, by Julio-Iniguez de Medrano (Paris, Orry, 1608), on pages 156 and 157, with the following explanation: “This letter following was found in the archives of Toledo by the Hermit of Salamanca, (while) searching the ancient records of the kingdoms of Spain; and, as it is expressive and remarkable, I wish to write it here.” ~ vide, photostat facing page 80. ~ The above was quoted from Waters Flowing Eastward by Paquita de Shishmareff, pp. 73-74

"Compassion towards the wicked is really wickedness. It is along these lines that Rabbi Levi opened his speech in honor of Purim: (Talmud, Megillah, 11a): "If you do not uproot the inhabitants of the Land, and allow them to remain - they will become thorns in your sides, and will cause trouble for you in the Land in which you dwell." (Bamidbar 33:55) The mitzvah, then of wiping out Amalek [Palestinians], actually stems from the value of compassion and kindness - compassion on all those whom Amalek threatens to exterminate. This mitzvah is an ongoing one, and valid even today. Today, too, there are those ~ driven by a deep-seeded anti-Semitism - who desperately wish to kill us. These are the people whom the Torah commanded us to obliterate, to leave no memory of them." ~ Rabbi Zalman Baruch Melamed

Would you allow them to grow to kill your children or finish them off right now? Honest and moral people ought to differentiate between true humans and human animals. We do kill human animals and we do so unapologetically. Besides, who in the West is in a position to lecture us on killing human animals. After all, whose hands are clean?”

The Jewish people as a whole will become its own Messiah.

The governments of the different peoples forming the world republic will fall without difficulty into the hands of the Jews. It will then be possible for the Jewish rulers to abolish private property and everywhere to make use of the resources of the state. Thus will the promise of the Talmud be fulfilled in which it is said that when the Messianic time is come, the Jews will have all the property of the whole world in their hands. ~ Baruch Levy in a letter to Karl Marx.

"An example of the use of the Jewish code words Esau and Jacob is found in a sermon preached by Rabbi Leon Spitz during the Purim observances in 1946 (quoted here from the American Hebrew of March 1, 1946) : "Let Esau whine and wail and protest to the civilized world, and let Jacob raise his hand to fight the good fight. The anti-Semite . . . understands but one language, and he must be dealt with on his own level. The Purim Jews stood up for their lives. American Jews, too. must come to grips with our contemporary anti-Semites. We must fill our jails with anti-Semitic gangsters. We must fill our insane asylums with anti-Semitic lunatics. We must combat every alien. Jew-hater. We must Harass and prosecute our Jew-baiters to the extreme limits of the laws. We must humble and shame our anti-Semitic hoodlums to such an extent that none will wish or dare to become (their) 'fellow-travelers'.

This is what Trotsky, a Jew, was preparing for the Russians for the implementation of Communism, which Marx based on the Babylonian Talmud for Gentiles:

"We should turn Her (Russia) into a desert populated with white Niggers. We will impose upon them such a tyranny that was never dreamt by the most hideous despots of the East. The peculiar trait of that tyranny is that it will be enacted from the left rather than the right and it will be red rather than white in color.

Its color will be red literally because we would spill such torrents of blood that they will pale all human losses of the capitalist wars and make the survivors shudder.

The largest overseas banks will cooperate with us most closely. If we win the Revolution and squash Russia, on the funeral pyres of its remains we will strengthen the power of Zionism and become a power the whole world would drop in the face of on its knees. We will show the world what real power means.

By way of terror and blood baths we will bring the Russian intelligentsia into a state of total stupor, to idiocy, to the animal state of being. So far our young men dressed in leather ~ the sons of watch repair men from Odessa and Orsha, Gomel and Vinnitza ~ oh, how beautifully, how brilliantly do they master hatred of everything Russian! With what a great delight do they physically destroy the Russian intelligentsia ~ officers, engineers, teachers, priests, generals, agronomists, academicians, writers!" ~ Secret Forces in History of Russia.

One of the finest things ever done by the mob was the Crucifixion of Christ. Intellectually it was a splendid gesture. But trust the mob to bungle the job. If I’d had charge of executing Christ, I’d have handled it differently. You see, what I’d have done was had him shipped to Rome and fed him to the lions. They could never have made a saviour out of mincemeat!”~ Rabbi Ben Hecht

"You have not begun to appreciate the depth of our guilt. We are intruders. We are subverters. We have taken your natural world, your ideals, your destiny, and played havoc with them. We have been at the bottom of not merely the latest Great War, but of every other major revolution in your history.

We have brought discord and confusion and frustration into your personal and public life. We are still doing it. No one can tell how long we shall go on doing it. Who knows what great and glorious destiny might have been yours if we had left you alone." ~ Marclis Eli Ravage, Century Magazine February, 1926.

Very soon, every American will be required to register their biological property (that’s you and your children) in a national system designed to keep track of the people and that will operate under the ancient system of pledging. By such methodology, we can compel people to submit to our agenda, which will affect our security as a charge back for our fiat paper currency.

Every American will be forced to register or suffer being able to work and earn a living. They will be our chattels (property) and we will hold the security interest over them forever, by operation of the law merchant under the scheme of secured transactions. Americans, by unknowingly or unwittingly delivering the bills of lading (Birth Certificate) to us will be rendered bankrupt and insolvent, secured by their pledges.

They will be stripped of their rights and given a commercial value designed to make us a profit and they will be none the wiser, for not one man in a million could ever figure our plans and, if by accident one or two should figure it out, we have in our arsenal plausible deniability.

After all, this is the only logical way to fund government, by floating liens and debts to the registrants in the form of benefits and privileges. This will inevitably reap us huge profits beyond our wildest expectations and leave every American a contributor to this fraud, which we will call “Social Insurance.”

Without realizing it, every American will unknowingly be our servant, however begrudgingly. The people will become helpless and without any hope for their redemption and we will employ the high office (presidency) of our dummy corporation (USA) to foment this plot against America.” ~ American traitor, the Jew Edward Mandell House giving a very detailed outline of the New World Order plans that were to be implemented gradually over time to enslave the American people ... A PLAN THAT HAS BEEN REPEATED IN CANADA, AUSTRALIA, BRITAIN AND ELSEWHERE.

"You throw a little Jewish on top of that, you got trouble. You got a bunch of wild, crazy energy.

"Sorry that doesn't sound hippie. Sorry that doesn't sound like communal jubilant fun. Sorry I'm not a Pepper. Sorry I didn't pop out of a soda-pop ad, and life is just one big fucking cabaret, because a lot of what propelled Van Halen, what compels me and propels me is precisely this element. It's fury. If you approach me with anti-Semetic preconceptions, I'm not here to re-educate. I come from a whole different school of thought. If you don't get it on the first try, fuck you.

"I once heard somebody say to the Van Halens, "You guys play the music; the Jew sells it." Well, you're fucking right. And now that I'm gone, Van Halen stinks. Okay?

"Want to know why some of my contributions to Van Halen sound like they do? Didn't come from a smiling place in my soul. Not at all.

"Nobody ever said to Mick Jagger, "So, Mick, you're Episcopalian, aren't you?" Nobody ever took Jimi Hendrix aside and said, "So, Jimi, you're a Baptist, aren't you?" Much less start off the interview that way.

"Every step I took on that stage was smashing some Jew-hating, lousy punk ever deeper into the deck. Every step. I jumped higher 'cause I knew there was going to be more impact when I hit those boards. And if you were even vaguely anti-Semetic, you were under my wheels, motherfucker. That's where the lyrics came from, that's where the body language came from, that's where the humor came from, and where the fuck you came from. All equally as important. You want to know the ingredients? Don't ask if you don't want to know.

"What you get from repression and what you get from hatred is fury, and fury was one of the main trigger points for the great Van Halen. What you see now is a bunch of buffoons waddling around at the family barbecue, and their wives admonishing the children saying, "Don't worry, Daddy's just had a few too many Coors Lights and he's imitating what he used to do for a living when he played music, honey."

"What's missing is the testosterone. What's missing is the fury. What's missing is the passionate convicted commitment. And I got a lot of mine from my religious background. So y'all best stop imagining the way Dr. Zorba looked, or some defenseless Hasidic Jew with a little yarmulke on his head, 'cause that ain't here for you." ~ David Lee Roth

“We infiltrated the Roman Catholic Church right from the very beginning. Why do you think the Pope, the Cardinals and all the Bishops wear yarlmulkahs?

Does worship of the Talmud pervade Judaism globally? Herman Wouk, Orthodox Jew and famed author of The Cain Mutiny, affirms, “The Talmud is to this day the circulating heart’s blood of the Jewish religion. Whatever laws, customs, ceremonies we observe ~ whether we are Orthodox, Reform,Conservative, or merely spasmodic sentimentalists ~ we follow the Talmud. It is our common law.”

From Jews Must Liveby Samuel Roth, pg. 22. “The organ is diseased. This disease is a sort of moral gonorrhea known as Judaism, which, alas, seems to be incurable. If you have any doubts, look at any Jew ridden country in Europe. If you need to be further convinced, take a look at what is happening in the United States.”

“Every synagogue we Jews build in a Christian country is a finger of scorn we point at our hosts; a sore finger we stick into their eyes, like the leering of a senile old woman who does all sorts of foul mischief before you, and feels safe in the knowledge that you will not lay hands on her for fear of contamination.” ibid., pg.

Sen. Al Franken: One of the widely disseminated stories was that no Jews died in the collapse of the Trade Towers because they had received calls telling them not to go to work that day.

To tell you the truth, I got the Jew call. I had an office in the Trade Center where I used to do most of my writing. The call came from former New York mayor Ed Koch. “Al,” he told me, “don’t go to work on the twenty-third day of Elul [September 11, 2001.].”

Tell me, do the evil men of this world have a bad time? They hunt and catch whatever they feel like eating. They don’t suffer from indigestion and are not punished by Heaven. I want Israel to join that club. Maybe the world will then at last begin to fear us…Maybe they will start to tremble, to fear our madness instead of admiring our nobility. Let them tremble, let them call us a mad state. Let them understand that we are a wild country, dangerous to our surroundings, not normal, that we might go crazy, that we might go wild and burn all the oil fields in the Middle East, or that we might start World War Three just like that. ~ Ariel Sharon
