Lipstadt writes on her blog, “One of the leading Holocaust deniers claims he has given up the fight to persuade people there was no Holocaust. Nobody would bite. So this is good news, right?” (Lipstadt is talking about Mark Weber and the article printed in The Jewish Daily Forward -- see yesterday’s post on this blog).
“Well not exactly. He is now going to focus his energies on fighting Jewish-Zionist power. This, of course, proves what I and others have been saying for years. Holocaust denial is naught but a form of antisemitism. [Mark] Weber could not spread antisemitism with Holocaust denial so he is going to try other methods.”
While a decision by one man to move from a focus on Holocaust revisionism to one on Jewish-Zionist power is evidence of something, it is proof of nothing. This is typical of the commonplace thinking of commonplace Holocaust scholars like Deborah Lipstadt. Any piece of evidence they find about gas chambers “proves” that Germans used gas chambers to exterminate the Jews of Europe. Still, not one Holocast scholar can provide the name, with proof, of one person who was killed in a gas chamber at Auschwitz.
They don’t even dare to try.
