G. THEIL: At Auschwitz, Father Christmas is a swine and a thief

 




Georges Theil (France)
Date: Jeudi 24 D├ęcembre 2009

Remarks read somewhere (in English, about the pinching of the metallic sign over the entrance to Auschwitz concentration camp) have given me the idea for this text, which comes at just the right time in this season of Father Christmas.
 
At Auschwitz, Father Christmas is a swine and a thief
by Georges Theil
 
It's just become known that the metallic sign with the words "Arbeit Macht Frei", set above the gate of the main camp at Auschwitz, was stolen two days ago, under the blind eye -- in the blackest night at 4 a.m., wouldn't you know! -- of a surveillance camera.
 
Straight away the question of motive arises, for, of course, the object simply isn't tradeable; nor can one imagine some Texas billionaire ready to pay a fortune just to hold it in secret.
 
And nobody imagines either that there can be anything inside the camp worth trying to steal...
 
But no, you're wrong there: some very significant thefts have been committed at Auschwitz: the "gas chambers", for example, were most certainly stolen quite some time ago and the camp museum authorities have seen fit to put make-shift ones in their place: so it is that, at Auschwitz-I, they explain that they had to rebuild the structure that once served as a "gas chamber". When some well-informed people voiced their astonishment upon seeing that the substitutions could never have been suited to carrying out mass killings, museum director Mrs Oleska responded coolly: "I know... There's no time for that... We'll see to it later on."
 
Personally, on hearing such an answer, I seriously wonder whether the museum authorities aren't parties to the crime that's bereft Auschwitz-I of its gas chamber.
 
But, you'll tell me, there's still another "gas chamber" at Birkenau! And no, you're mistaken: that one was stolen too! And in its place is to be seen just a depository (morgue): besides, by no means could that "substitution place" ever have served the purpose of killing people. Here again, it's preposterous to try to present the enclosure as having been used for extermination by gas, and all the more as the thieves also cynically stole the holes through which the pellets of Zyklon B insecticide were poured, pellets that many witnesses saw, with their own eyes, being dropped precisely through those holes in the roof.
 
What can the "gas chamber" thieves possibly do with what they've taken? And with the holes they stole along with it? This case of the stolen holes is bound to be a true horror for the justice system!
 
This looting on the holy site of Auschwitz is unconscionable. Our indignation is not feigned! Action must be taken now.
 
But even before the search for the vanished objects or structures -- an assuredly difficult undertaking -- I propose a radical solution: rebuild identical copies of the "gas chambers" (with the stolen holes, to be reconstituted), and at the same time verify their functioning and dependability. That can't be too difficult since we possess original blueprints (which were flushed out by Robert Faurisson in 1976). Of course, in those drawings of the Bauleitung, "gas chambers" do not feature expressly. But we've got so many testimonies that it will be easy to reconstitute them and so have exact replicas: it will be enough to ask witnesses of the first order like Elie Wiesel to authenticate them, with the wise support of experts like Serge Klarsfeld and numerous others.
 
And that way the tourists will at last be able to say, on returning from their pilgrimage to Auschwitz: "You know, I really saw, with my own eyes, two gas chambers in their original state! I saw the Zyklon B pellets being poured in. And I also heard some gripping commentaries. Enough to button the lips of those revisionists..."

Debating the Holocaust: A New Look at Both Sides By Thomas Dalton

In this remarkable, balanced book, the author skillfully reviews and compares "traditional" and "revisionist" views on the "The Holocaust."

On one side is the traditional, orthodox view -- six million Jewish casualties, gas chambers, cremation ovens, mass graves, and thousands of witnesses. On the other is the view of a small band of skeptical writers and researchers, often unfairly labeled "deniers," who contend that the public has been gravely misled about this emotion-laden chapter of history.

The author establishes that the arguments and findings of revisionist scholars are substantive, and deserve serious consideration. He points out, for example, that even the eminent Jewish Holocaust scholar Raul Hilberg acknowledged that there was no budget, plan or order by Hitler for a World War II program to exterminate Europe's Jews.

This book is especially relevant right now, as "Holocaust deniers" are routinely and harshly punished for their "blasphemy," and as growing numbers of people regard the standard, Hollywoodized "Holocaust" narrative with mounting suspicion and distrust.

The author of this book, who writes under the pen name of "Thomas Dalton," is an American scholar who holds a doctoral degree from a major US university.

This is no peripheral debate between arcane views of some obscure aspect of twentieth century history. Instead, this is a clash with profound social-political implications regarding freedom of speech and press, the manipulation of public opinion, how our cultural life is shaped, and how power is wielded in our society.

For Palestinians, Every Day Is Kristallnacht

 

Paul Craig Roberts Archive

December 13, 2009

http://www.vdare.com/roberts/091213_kristallnacht.htm

For Palestinians, Every Day Is Kristallnacht

By Paul Craig Roberts 

"Settlers attack West Bank mosque and burn holy Muslim books" was a London Times headline on December 11, 2009.  

These attacks, together with the demolition of Palestinian homes, the uprooting of Palestinians' olive groves, the innumerable checkpoints that prevent Palestinians from accessing schools, work, and medical care, the Israeli Wall that denies Palestinians access to the land stolen from them, and the isolation and blockade of the Gaza Ghetto, are part of the Israeli government's policy of genocide for the Palestinians.  

The Israel Lobby has such power over America that even former President Jimmy Carter, a good friend of Israel, is demonized for using the polite term--apartheid--for the genocide that has occurred over the decades during which American "Christian" preachers, together with bought-and-paid-for politicians, justified Israel's policy of slow genocide for Palestine.

Israelis who still have a moral conscience--a small part of the population--endeavor to use moral protests against the inhumanity of the Israeli government.  Israelis Jeff Halper and Angela Godfrey-Goldstein lead the Israeli Committee Against House Demolition  (ICAHD), a non-violent, direct-action group established to oppose and resist Israeli demolition of Palestinian homes in the Occupied Territories. 

Under international law an occupier by military force is forbidden to steal the occupied land.  The US, however, has protected Israel's violation of international law for decades by vetoing UN resolutions.  Israel has been able to steal Palestine from the Palestinians, because the US government used its power to prevent Israel from being held accountable under international law.

In March 2003 American citizen Rachel Corrie stood in front of an Israeli bulldozer, made by Caterpillar and sent to destroy a Palestinian home. Her courageous act of defiance was regarded as an annoyance, and she was run over and murdered by the Israeli bulldozer operator.  Israel suffered no consequences for its murder of an American citizen who had a moral conscience.  

In the Israeli-controlled American media, we hear endlessly that Palestinians are terrorists who strap on explosives in order to kill innocent Israelis and who terrorize Israeli towns by firing rockets into them. One look at the maps above is enough to make clear who the real terrorist is. The success of Israeli propaganda in the face of totally obvious facts damns the ignorance and unconcern of the American people.

The Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, which also has a moral conscience and is intelligent to boot, wrote on December 4, 2009:  "Every appointee to the American government must endure a thorough background check by the American Jewish community." Haaretz notes that any American that the President of the United States proposes for an appointment to his government is subject to the approval of the Israel Lobby, which can blackball appointees at will.

Haaretz gives the example of Charles Freeman, whom President Obama intended to appoint as head of the National Intelligence Council.  The Israel Lobby proved, again, that it was more powerful than a mere American President and prevented the appointment, citing Freeman's "anti-israel leaning."  In other words, because Freeman was not an overboard apologist for Israel's crimes he was unacceptable to the Israel Lobby. 

Haaretz reports: "The next attempt to appoint an intelligence aide, in this case, former Republican senator Chuck Hagel, also resulted in vast criticism over his not having a pro-Israel record."  The Israel Lobby has blocked Hagel's appointment by President Obama.  Hagel doesn't want to start a war with Iran for Israel's benefit and was blackballed by Morton A. Klein, the president of the Zionist Organization of America.  Hagel, it seems, "refused to sign a letter calling on then-president George Bush to speak about Iran's nuclear program at the G8 summit that year." 

Now it is a Jewish daughter of a Holocaust survivor, Hannah Rosenthal, whose appointment to head the US Office to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism, an office that is another indication of America's puppet state status, is under attack. Rosenthal was the head of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs during 2000-2005. Her black mark came from serving on the advisory board of the J Street Lobby, a recently-formed American Jewish organization formed in opposition to AIPAC's murderous militarism.  

The Israel Lobby's opposition to Hannah Rosenthal shows that no moral person can survive the Israel Lobby's blackball.  

The US, "the world's only superpower," has no independent voice in Middle Eastern affairs.  The real power rests in the hands of the settler thug, Avigdor Lieberman, Deputy Prime Minister of Israel and Minister of Foreign Affairs.  This is the man who controls the Obama government's Middle East policy.  Lieberman forced the "all-powerful President of the US, Barack Obama," to rescind his order to Israel to halt the illegal settler settlements on occupied Palestinian land.  Obama was given the bird and submitted to his master.

Macho Americans who prance around as if they owned the world are nothing but the puppets of Israel.  The US is not a country.  It is a colony. 

Paul Craig Roberts [email himwas Assistant Secretary of the Treasury during President Reagan's first term.  He was Associate Editor of the Wall Street Journal.  He has held numerous academic appointments, including the William E. Simon Chair, Center for Strategic and International Studies, Georgetown University, and Senior Research Fellow, Hoover Institution, Stanford University. He was awarded the Legion of Honor by French President Francois Mitterrand.

"Nazi" and/or "Holocaust" Christmas Carols

 


ReportersNotebook memo: How sick is this?! all except one of these 'carols' have "Nazi" and/or "Holocaust" in it. And that's a joke. Here's how we see the social political power of WW2 anti-German propaganda! It's grown into a monster running out of control!


Christmas Carols from the Boston LaRouche Youth Movement

Christmas Carols and Songs


We present a gift from the Boston LaRouche Youth Movement, and the Lyndon LaRouche PAC. Enjoy.



ObamaCare
MP3 Audio


You better not cough,
You better not sneeze,
You better not get a fatal disease,
Obama's keeping healthcare costs down,
He's making a list,
And checking with NICE,
If keeping you breathing is worth the price,
Obama's keeping healthcare costs down,
Obamacare is thrifty,
'Cuz they don't give a damn,
If you are under fifty and you need a mammogram,
So you better be young,
With plenty of cash,
Or help shave off his Hitler mustache,
Obama's keeping healthcare costs down,
Obama's health advisers,
Are genocidal jerks,
Just like the Nazi doctors that were hanged at Nuremberg,
Obama's healthcare,
It mustn't be passed,
So light a fire on your congressman's ass.
Obama's keeping healthcare costs down.



Obama's lost it all
MP3 Audio
What kind of president is this,
Emitting noble gasses,
A Nobel Prize winning piece of work,
Who's trying to kill the masses,
Obama has lost it all,
For a little queen who's not so tall,
Obama is plunging fast,
Don't let your country go with him,
Somewhere between East Anglia,
And the Chicago Board of Trade,
A green financial bubble grows,
As'the City of London gets paid,
Obama has lost it all,
For a little queen who's not so tall,
Obama is plunging fast,
Don't let your country go with him,
A global holocaust is here,
But citizens do not dismay,
If Mars we reach in'a fusion fleet,
Then safely we'll be out of harm's way,
Obama has lost it all,
For a little queen who's not so tall,
Obama is plunging fast,
Don't let your country go with him.



Outside of a shelter
MP3 Audio
Outside of a shelter you wait for a bed,
thrown out before Christmas all thanks to Fed,
Foreclosures are soaring and credit has froze,
But where's Barney Bailout nobody knows,
Away in London they scheme for your life,
Obama bends over to prince Philips' wife,
In DC he gave all you had to the banks,
On London's orders he'll bring out the tanks,
We warned Barney Frank but he said things were fine,
Guess what? He's a liar and you're on the line,
The system is crashing but it's not your fate,
Now pass the LaRouche Plan before it's too late,
Tell congress move over we're taking your job,
Vote Rachel for Congress she'll clean out the slobs,
The future is calling for you to embrace,
Put Rachel in congress and mankind in space.



The unemployment line
MP3 Audio
Who should be sent to the unemployment line?
Obama's little mustache,
Who should be sent to the unemployment line?
Bailout Barney Frank,
And Obama's little mustache,
Who should be sent to the unemployment line?
Nancy Pelosi,
Bailout Barney Frank,
And Obama's little mustache,
Who should be sent to the unemployment line?
London's little queen,
Nancy Pelosi,
Bailout Barney Frank,
And Obama's little mustache,
Who should be sent to the unemployment line?
They're worse than Bush,
London's little queen,
Nancy Pelosi,
Bailout Barney Frank,
And Obama's little mustache,
Who should be sent to the unemployment line?
Evil Peter Orzag,
Timothy Geithner,
Ben Bernanke,
They're worse than Bush,
London's little queen,
Nancy Pelosi,
Bailout Barney Frank,
And Obama's little mustache,
Who should be sent to the unemployment line?
Scary Larry Summers,
Dr. EZ-Kill,
And his brother Rahm,
Evil Peter Orzag,
Timothy Geithner,
Idiot Bernanke,
They'll kill us all,
London's little queen,
Nancy Pelosi,
Bailout Barney Frank,
And Obama's little mustache,
Who should be sent to the unemployment line?
Nazi John Holdren,
Scary Larry Summers,
Dr. EZ-Kill,
And his brother Rahm,
Evil Peter Orzag,
Timothy Geithner,
Idiot Bernanke,
Don't forget Al Gore!
London's little queen,

Palestinian children 

       "The difference between a Jewish soul and the soul of non-Jews is greater and deeper than the difference between a human soul and the soul of cattle."

           — Rabbi Kook

Rachel Corrie

She Died for Palestine

Dr Lasha Darkmoon

http://www.theoccidentalobserver.net/authors/Darkmoon-Rachel.html

December 21, 2009

In memory of Rachel Corrie

Like all things pure and precious

Like holy bread and wine

I love the radiant Rachel

Who died for Palestine.

 

Beautiful in life ... Beautiful in death

 

... cut down like a flower of the field 

 

Once through a green field drifting

In the doldrums of the day

Watching ravens peck out lambs' eyes

In their cruel, gloating way:

"You take the gun. You shoot. You do what you want." Israeli soldier

"The Palestinians are beasts walking on two legs." —  Menahim Begin

I remembered, I remembered,

How those raptors vulturine

Seized the land and plagued the people

Of historic Palestine.

 

Deir Yassin, April, 1948

... and elsewhere

The Massacre of the Innocents.

"We shall have no pity on them until we shall have destroyed their so-called Arab culture, on the ruins of which we shall build our own civilization."  Menachem Begin

How the snipers on the rooftops,

Armed with Uzis, standing tall,

Splash the blood of little children

On the weeping classroom walls.

 

How the settlers spit on Christians

In the land where Jesus died—

And how those who do the spitting

Have the world upon their side.

"I know Christians who lock themselves indoors during the entire Purim holiday," —  Daniel Rossing.

How they bulldoze people's houses

Till the roofs crash on their heads

And the women lie all broken

With their babies in their beds.

 

How the wolfish killers wander

Through a vale of endless tears

Shooting children in their faces

While the world stands by and cheers.

 

How the bright-eyed Rachel Corries

Lie in cemeteries dead

While the birds of prey grow fatter—

And the world just turns its head.

Christ, come back and save these children—

Put an end to all their pain!

Put an end to evil Zion!

Palestine, come back again!

 

Palestinian children

To The Editor,
                     In an effort to demonstrate Diane Sawyer ''bona fides'' as a hard hitting journalist ( ''Sawyer Sets Her Tone as ABC's Anchor ": New York Times Dec. 22, 2009) today's Times informs us how during a recent interview in Copenhagen she confronted President Ahmadinejad of Iran over his country's alleged drive to develop nuclear weapons. 

As reported: ''Seated across from Mr. Almadinejad ...Ms Sawyer waved a copy of a document that was published in The Times of London this month that suggests that Iran is working on a trigger for a nuclear bomb. 'Have you been been testing a neutron initiator?' she asked sounding a bit like a principal who has caught a student cheating''. 

Rudeness toward a Moslem head of state is apparently a good career move if you are a journalist who wishes to anchor the nightly news. However, I would have more respect for Ms. Sawyer if she had applied this same confrontational style to an interview with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and asked him about his county's over four hundred nuclear warheads. The consequences I think are obvious; Ms. Sawyer's career as a journalist would have come to an abrupt end.
