The racist entity that is taking over Israel must be toppled

NOTE: We would like to know what Rabbi Aryeh Tuchman of the ADL and JHate thinks about this story.

The atrocities in Libya send an unequivocal message to the world: Patriotism lies with democracy, not with the regime.

The wretchedness of the law in the face of Rabbi Dov Lior has many meanings, and Lior's refusal to be interrogated over his support for "The King's Torah - The Laws for Killing Gentiles" - only marginally gets at the heart of the matter.

Thirty years ago, the terrorist organization known as the "Jewish Underground" was set up with the purpose of killing Arabs. The group's head of operations, Menachem Livni - who was convicted on multiple counts of murder before being pardoned by the regime - testified at the time that the living spirit, the initiator, the religious instructor and the coordinator of the murders was Lior.

This was true for the murders the underground carried out, and was also true for the pressure he put on the murderers to blow up buses and their passengers. The law states that someone who dispatches murders should receive multiple life sentences, along with additional time for organizing the crime. But thanks to instruction from higher up, Lior was never imprisoned, put to trial and or even properly interrogated.

When Dialogue leads to Catastrophe



An Israeli professor reveals what goes on in the subjective life of a Holocaust True Believer, which leads Smith to wonder how Secretary-General of UNESCO, Irina Bokova, can be for free expression for Egyptian journalists and revolutionaries now that they will have the right, and the space, to question the Holocaust story.

From Lady Ga-Ga to Saigon and Back Again

A new YouTube video from Bradley Smith. Revisionism, Health and Money. Not necessarily in that order. Here Smith finds himself paying special attention to that fragment of his life centered on money. Or, better, his inexplicably dangerous lack of interest in the money itself. And the reason he admires the director of the USHMM, Sara J. Bloomfield.

Honorable Ambassador Jones-Bos:

Greetings from California-

I read that swifter punishment of “Deniers” is being proposed in the Netherlands. I am writing to oppose such a program and ask that you forward my request to your Government.

I believe that much misinformation about Revisionists and Revisionist arguments has been circulated. Because what is termed “Denial” is a charge that can lead to up to ten years in prison in some countries, and because writers like myself are the subject of these laws, I believe it would be appropriate, and useful, that those passing the law actually hear from a “Denier” prior to passing further laws.

Although it is standard practice to defame Revisionists as “anti-Semites who claim the Holocaust is just Jewish propaganda,” that is not what we at CODOH argue. Briefly, we believe that much of the history that we are taught today has been influenced by Soviet, British and American wartime propaganda which exaggerated and exploited real tragedies for propaganda purposes. This concerns not just Jews but Slavs, Roma, Jehovah’s Witnesses and, in some versions, Gays. I believe that there is considerable research that supports this point of view. The recent work of Dutch historian Anna Tijsseling regarding the persecution of Gays is an example.

It is inconceivable to me that I, or anyone, should be threatened with prison for stating in public that I doubt what I doubt. Whatever the ostensibly laudable purposes of the laws are, these laws against “Denial” go against fundamental values of a free society.

Thank you for your help.

Sincerely,

David Merlin, Member
