Denial of Holocaust belittles survivors of Nazism, says Martin



No wonder Toben wasn't allowed to attend this conference in Ireland!

Instead, he's attending a Philosophy Conference in Iran.

Denial of Holocaust belittles survivors of Nazism, says Martin

PATSY McGARRY, Religious Affairs Correspondent

DENIAL OF the Holocaust "is a reprehensible effort to belittle the brave survivors of the brutal Nazi regime", Minister for Foreign Affairs Micheál Martin has said.

"The testimony of the survivors is not only as moving as the memorial and museum in their honour at Yad Vashem, which I visited myself the year before last. It also serves as the final, undeniable proof of the horrors of the Holocaust," he said.

He was speaking at a reception in Iveagh House in Dublin to mark the opening of an international conference, "Anti-Semitism and Holocaust Denial".

Organised by the Holocaust Education Trust of Ireland, it began in Trinity College Dublin yesterday.

The Minister said he believed the Holocaust had "left a blemish on the landscape of history which will never be erased from human consciousness.

"The Irish Government has acknowledged that this country did not do all that it could have done during the second World War to help the Jewish people and other victims of the Holocaust. As a result, we in Ireland are very conscious of the need to learn the lessons of history."

Minister of State for Equality and Human Rights Mary White said it was "vitally important that we never forget one of the darkest periods of the 20th century. I believe that we all have a responsibility to ensure that the horrors of the Holocaust are never forgotten and that we learn the lessons from the past so that they may never happen again".

She added: "It is said that the measure of any democratic society can be seen through the way in which we treat our minority groups."

** An exhibition will open at the Irish Architectural Archive on Dublin's Merrion Square today on the "Architecture of Murder". Continuing Tuesday to Friday until December 17th, it features blueprints from the Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camps.

Brand New Book is Rocking the Shoah Business!C. Mattogno: Auschwitz - The Case for Sanity

For ten years now, Prof. Jan van Pelt has been spoken of as the foremost expert on Auschwitz. With his 2002 book he claimed to have refuted revisionist arguments on Auschwitz. Yet here comes Carlo Mattogno, arguably the world's most knowledgeable expert on the Holocaust, with his two volume analysis of van Pelt's study. Its conclusions are devastating: van Pelt ignores crucial counter-arguments, exhibits complete technical incompetence, is highly inconsistent, uses deceptive argumentative techniques, presents conflicting sources, abstains from source criticism, deforms sources to serve his foregone conclusions, and reveals a shockingly threadbare knowledge of the history of Auschwitz.

Now available at the new CODOH Bookstore:

Holocaust Handbooks, Volume 22

Carlo Mattogno, Auschwitz: The Case for Sanity. A Historical and Technical Study of Jean-Claude Pressac's "Criminal Traces" and Robert Jan van Pelt's "Convergence of Evidence"
2 Vols., 756 pp. total (Vol. I: 366 pp.; Vol. II: 390 pp.) pb., 6"×9", b/w ill., glossary, bibl., index. Sold as a set only: $45.- plus s&h

I must admit this is too strong a brew for my stomach.

In words of Colhaze "Laws then, like those already promulgated before you and I were born. Laws that explicitly prohibit Shechita and Halal, and thus are a first good step to rid us of Inhumans who multiply out of all proportion and vie already for the day when they have overwhelmed us and force us into barbarous slavery."

Even for a Hitlerite this Colhaze certainly is he surely crossed a line, in my view. Have you actually read it, Dr MacDonald? Mike, is everything permissible?

Obama signs order clarifying church-state relationship



By Dan Gilgoff, CNN

President Barack Obama signed an executive order Wednesday clarifying the ground rules for religious groups partnering with the federal government through the White House's controversial faith office.

The order says that religious organizations receiving federal funds must conduct explicitly religious activities in a time and place that are different from when and where they do government-financed work.

But the order also states that faith-based organizations receiving federal dollars may use their facilities to provide government-backed social services, even if those facilities include religious art, icons, scriptures and other religious symbols.

A religious group receiving federal money may also keep religious language in its name, select board members on a religious basis, and include religious references in its mission statements and other documents, the executive order says.

The White House framed the order as an attempt to separate religion from politics, saying in a news release that "decisions about financial awards must be free from political interference or even the appearance of such interference."

But a group that advocates strict church-state separation said the order did not go nearly far enough in that regard.

"I'm disappointed," said the Rev. Barry W. Lynn, executive director of Americans United for the Separation of Church and State. "This leaves much of George W. Bush's faith-based initiative in place. That's not the change many Americans hoped for when President Obama took office."

"I am particularly frustrated that President Obama still has done nothing to ban hiring bias by publicly funded religious charities," Lynn said in a statement. "That's the 800-pound gorilla in the room. No American should be denied a government-funded job because he or she holds the 'wrong' views about religion."

At the same time, Americans United applauded the order for requiring federal agencies to provide alternatives for people who do not want to receive social services at religious charities and praised a new requirement that faith groups receiving federal money be listed on government websites.

The White House faith office was launched by President George W. Bush in 2001 and was retained by Obama, to the disappointment of some church-state separation advocates. Obama tweaked the name of the office, calling it the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships.

While the Bush office was aimed mostly at helping to "level the playing field" for faith-based and nonprofit groups applying for federal money to tackle problems like poverty and substance abuse, Obama's faith office has focused on non-financial relationships with faith and nonprofit groups.

The office has come under fire from Bush administration officials, who say the White House is abusing it for political gain.

Responding to charges from those officials that a conference call Obama hosted with religious leaders on the new health care law crossed the line into political outreach, the White House said last month that "there could hardly be a more appropriate audience" for such a call.

"When congregants fall ill, faith communities come together to support their brothers and sisters in need," Joshua DuBois, executive director of the White House Office of Faith-Based and Neighborhood Partnerships, wrote on the White House blog.

The White House response came after former Bush aides publicly criticized the conference call, saying it was an example of Obama abusing the office to win political support from religious leaders.

"According to the White House website, the faith-based office exists 'to more effectively serve Americans in need,'" Jim Towey, who directed Bush's faith office, wrote in a Wall Street Journal op-ed in September. "I guess that now means Americans in need of Democratic talking points on health care."
