The article by Paul Grubach, “Ahmadinejad’s Reasonable Stance on the Holocaust” is excellent and thought provoking article. Thank you for printing it.
Unfortunately, the Holocaust Myth is used by American politicians as a fear mongering tool rather than as a historical story subject to discussion. As an American I, was embarrassed last year by Columbia's president Lee Bollinger ignorant and rude reception for Iran's president. This year I am worried by presidential candidates' bellicose language about a "Second Holocaust."
Belief in the Holocaust Myth is the new religion in the Western countries. It is generally unreported that several historians and scholars have been jailed for expressing disbelief in the more extreme Holocaust tales. The heroic Ernst Zundel and Germar Rudolf are both in German jails for expressing doubt. Author David Irving was jailed in Austria.
President Ahmadinejad correctly commented that research and study on the matter are needed. Mr. Gurbach gave several supporting examples. Another important example is the unreported fact that the Majdanek Museum in Poland dropped the number of killed from 360,000 people killed to 78,000 people "missing."
It is worth noting that the Nuremberg Court claimed that 1.5 million people were killed at Majdanek and turned into fertilizer! While the new figures still represent a horrible tragedy, they show the extreme exaggerations inflicted on history by the Soviet and British propaganda machines at the end of World War II.
Mehr News Agency's attention to this important issue is great. Thank you again. Yours for Peace and Truth,
