year-end report, Holocaust Denial: A Global Survey - 2004, has been issued by the Philadelphia-based David S. Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies.
Among the findings in this years report:
* Some Arab governments continued to actively promote Holocaust denial in 2004. And a Holocaust denier, Mahmoud Abbas (Abu Mazen), emerged as the leading candidate for chairmanship of the Palestinian Authority.
* Holocaust-deniers in the United States continued their efforts to gain a measure of respectability in 2004, and benefited from the willingness of several prominent individuals to associate with them. In this context, the report cited Peter Gemma, a senior staff member of well-known pundit Pat Buchanans 2000 presidential campaign. Gemma spoke at a February 19, 2004 meeting in Virginia of the Institute for Historical Review, the leading Holocaust denial organization in the United States.
* On the other hand, a number of Western governments and other institutions took important steps against Holocaust deniers. The Canadian government sought to deport Ernst Zundel; the government of New Zealand denied entry to David Irving; the French government brought charges against Bruno Gollnisch; Harvard University returned a gift from an Arab leader who promoted Holocaust-denial; and The Nation magazine said it would no longer accept advertisements from Holocaust-deniers. Most notably, U.S. intervention brought about the first-ever public disavowal of Holocaust-denial by an Egyptian government official.
The reports co-authors are Holocaust scholars Dr. Alex Grobman (author of a recent book on Holocaust denial) and Dr. Rafael Medoff (director of the Wyman Institute).
Do any of the holocaust deniers also belong to the "moon landing was shot on a Hollywood set" crowd?
Has Pat Buchanan condemned his associate's actions?
Well, he would say that, wouldn't he? The mufti of Jerusalem and herr hitler were buddies -
Here they are, tete-a-tete:
Ex-Mufti, Criminal Ally:
Speaking somewhere (anywhere) is not condemnable per se; one would need to know something about the text of the speech before condemning the speaker for it. What was he saying there?
Pat is insane.
Not a good idea, in fact not an idea at all.
This just makes martyrs of the deniers and gives them the line: "You can't handle the truth".
He scares me because he's canny enough to take a deal that doesn't give him everything the so-called palis want -- and be patient enough to use it as a first step toward trying to wipe Israel off the face of the planet. At least arafart was too stupid and ham-handed to be subtle. But this guy will lull the EU and our Statist Dept into believing that he's a true "partner for peace."
Don't these people have anything better to do? What a bunch of losers.
