連載:シオニスト『ガス室』謀略の周辺事態 (その57)

私も参加のベイルート「見直し論とシオニズム」会議に米国務省が妨害の圧力

2001.3.1

 私が待ちに待った表題の画期的な会議に対して、案の定、極右政治的シオニストとその謀略的な支配下にある米国務省による妨害工作が、公然と開始されました。

 私は、この急報に接した直後、情報発信者で旧知のアメリカの歴史見直し研究所編集長、マーク・ウィーバーに、下に再録した英文手紙のごとく、「私が日本の主流のメディアを相手に戦っていた当時、われわれは、このような圧力を、自分達の戦いの宣伝のための絶好の機会と評価した。戦い抜け。幸運を祈る」と返信しました。

 以下、その後に、記載のIHR、アメリカの歴史見直し研究所のホーム頁から入手した関係記事を、とりあえず、英文のまま、順次、収録します。

 なお、実に面白いことには、日本の『マルコポーロ』廃刊事件でも来日し、私も直接会ったユダヤ教法師、クーパーが、アメリカの大手週刊誌、「USA Today」に寄稿した非難文書の中に、いかに彼らがこの事態を恐れているか、または、この会議に至るまでのイスラム圏におけるホロコースト見直し論の普及の有り様が、いかに爆発的であるか、などが、問わず語りに、明らかにされています。

 その中心部分だけを、以下、先に紹介します。


Unfortunately, however, too many in the mainstream Arab and Muslim worlds teach their children just the opposite: that there was no Holocaust.

From Tehran to Baghdad to Damascus to Gaza to Cairo, the Holocaust-denial ideology has been fused with "holy war" gospel by those dedicated to delegitimatize the Jewish people and destroying the state of Israel.

This is KIMURA Aiji

Thank you for your E-mail below. I have already received the same message from ICHEE, and sent it to my Japanese E-mail friends, about 700 persons, with my brief japanese explanation. When I had been fighting against Japanese mainstream media, we appreciated these oppressions as the best chance to advertize our struggles.

Fight it up. I wish you a good luck.

Holocaust deniers spread their lies in Mideast By Abraham Cooper and Harold Brackman Veteran war reporter John Sack recently penned an Inside the Bunker account for Esquire magazine -- not of Adolf Hitler's last days, but of the lives of those who today deny that the Nazis ever intended to annihilate the Jews.

Sack presents a sympathetic "insider's view" of a California convention of the Institute for Historical Review (IHR), the organized front for Holocaust revisionists who deny the reality of Hitler's Final Solution. Sack's prose is satirical, but his serious purpose is to score the Jewish critics of Holocaust deniers.

Though not denying the Holocaust, Sack dismisses the deniers as no more dangerous than devotees of flying-saucer cults.

Pictured as harmless Germanophiles, they emerge through Sack's prose as heroic martyrs to the cause of free speech, allegedly under assault by organized Jews.

Perhaps Sack and the editors of Esquire don't take Holocaust denial seriously, but the rest of the world views matters differently. Many countries are concerned about the resurgence of Nazism and have made it a crime to defame the memory of the dead.

Americans may not agree with these laws on free-speech grounds, but we all can applaud last year's declaration of the Stockholm International Forum on the Holocaust, which encourages all European states to include the study of the Holocaust "in all its dimensions" in the curriculums of their schools.

Unfortunately, however, too many in the mainstream Arab and Muslim worlds teach their children just the opposite: that there was no Holocaust.

This is why the supposedly harmless IHR has, for the first time, scheduled a gathering in the Middle East: a conference March 31 through April 3 in Beirut titled, "Revisionism and Zionism." The event is coordinated by Jurgen Graf, a professional bigot who fled Switzerland in 1998 for Tehran after being sentenced by a Swiss court for denying the Holocaust.

A frightening fusion From Tehran to Baghdad to Damascus to Gaza to Cairo, the Holocaust-denial ideology has been fused with "holy war" gospel by those dedicated to delegitimatize the Jewish people and destroying the state of Israel.

A few examples:

* According to Palestinian intellectual Abdallah Horani, "instead of talking about the so-called Holocaust, (we) should have followed the doubts (about it) that are gaining momentum in the international arena and among leading European intellectuals."

* Sheik Nafez Azzam of the "Palestinian Jihad" movement in Gaza insists that any "intention to teach the Holocaust in the Palestinian schools contradicts the natural order of the universe."

* Columnist Anis Mansour, writing in Egypt's official Al-Ahram newspaper, says it should "become clear to the world that what happened to the Jews of Germany, Poland and Russia was justified." Sustenance for haters Such denial or dismissal of the Holocaust is devastating for the forces of moderation and reconciliation in the Middle East.

Haters are counting on society's collective lapsed memory to whitewash the crimes of the past and rehabilitate Hitler's legacy. Holocaust deniers, whatever their nationality or religion, are trying to complete the work of SS storm troopers who, according to Holocaust survivor Primo Levi, taunted death-camp inmates: "However this war may end, we have won the war against you; none of you will be left to bear witness; but even if someone were to survive, the world will not believe him." Today's hate merchants and Holocaust deniers believe that they can reinvent history.

Our obligation is to reject their "big lies" because, as philosopher George Santayana warned, "Those who cannot remember the past are condemned to repeat it."

Rabbi Abraham Cooper is associate dean of the Simon Wiesenthal Center. Harold Brackman is consultant on intergroup relations for the Museum of Tolerance.

Washington Warns Lebanon Not to Host Conference on Zionism
TEHRAN TIMES INTL. DESK

TEHRAN- Washington has warned Lebanon not to host a conference on Zionism, according to a Lebanese daily. The Beirut-based daily As-Safir reported on Saturday that the U.S. State Department conveyed the request through the U.S. ambassador in Beirut and the Lebanese ambassador to Washington.

The report added that some U.S. congressmen and Jewish organizations in that country have been trying to portray those organizing the conference, which is entitled "Zionism and Revisionism," as anti-Semitic and racist.

According to the daily, the Congress has suggested that holding the conference may affect the U.S. attitude and aid to Lebanon.

The conference has been organized by the Swiss Truth and Justice Organization and the California-based Institute for Reviewing History, the report added. It cited the aim of conference as refuting the Zionist claims regarding the so-called Holocaust.

The daily also quoted some U.S. sources as saying that, considering the freedom of expression in Lebanon, the officials of this country will not be able to ban the conference.

As-Safir (Beirut, Lebanon)
March 3, 2001
[Translation from Arabic]

Washington Demands of Lebanon ... And Warns It Against Hosting The 'Holocaust Denial' Conference.

Hisham Melhem The American government desires of Lebanon that it prohibit convening a conference in Beirut of groups and organizations that deny that the Nazi "Holocaust" against the Jews occurred.

It expressed its concern over the negative effects such a conference would have not only on the reputation of Lebanon abroad, but also over the effects it might have on the attitude of Congress towards Lebanon and the aid it will grant it.

This has appeared at the same time that several American Jewish organizations demanded that the Lebanese government prohibit the convening of the conference whose sponsors these organizations accused of being racist and anti-Semitic.

Informed American sources have told as-Safir that Washington informed Lebanon of this position via its ambassador, David Satterfield in Beirut and in communication with the Lebanese ambassador in Washington, Farid Abboud.

Sources in Congress have also conveyed their reservations about the conference to the Lebanese government.

The organization Verite et Justice that is headquartered in Switzerland is organizing the conference in cooperation with the Institute for Historical Review which has its headquarters in the state of California and is considered one of the foremost American organizations that deny that the "Holocaust" occurred.

This is the first time in which a conference of this type will be held in an Arab state. Until now the organizers of the conference have not announced the place where the conference will be held in Beirut, though they have declared that it will begin on the 31st of this month and end on the 3rd of April.

The title of the conference is Revisionism and Zionism. American officials say that Iran and "Hezbollah" in Lebanon are behind the organization of the conference although they say that they have no firm proof of that.

They add that if Lebanon cannot prohibit the conference on the grounds of freedom of expression -- particularly since similar conferences have been held in America and the authorities could not ban them -- then Lebanon must at least declare that it has no connection with the conference.

American uneasiness over the conference stems from the content of the conference as well as from its timing -- coinciding as it does with an explosion of the situation between the Palestinians and Israelis and the tension that the region as a whole is experiencing.

The Americans question whether it is appropriate to hold such a conference in Lebanon and say that Lebanon, which faces many problems and threats, is not in need of an additional problem, particularly since the conference is inexcusable morally and politically and because it can only create problems and distress for Lebanon.

According to a registration questionnaire distributed by the Institute for Historical Review, prior registration is required for those attending the conference for security reasons. Every conference participant will be given his own telephone number in Beirut and he must call that number upon arrival at Beirut airport "to obtain information on the location of the conference." Some days ago Rabbi Abraham Cooper, an official of the Jewish Simon Wisenthal center in California, sent a letter to the Lebanese Prime Minister Rafiq al-Hariri demanding that he prohibit the conference.

The letter read in part, "there are many opinions concerning the possibility of attaining peace in your region, but definitely introducing the topic of denial of the "holocaust" into the political discourse in Lebanon and the Arab world is not one of those opnions. This will only lead to poisoning the hearts and minds of the uninformed and will further inflame the fires of hatred and lack of trust in the region."

The letter indicated the director of the organization Verite et Justice in Switzerland, Jyrgen Graf, had fled from Switzerland in 1998 to avoid a prison sentence and took refuge in Iran. The director of the Jewish Anti Defamation League, Rabbi Abraham Foxman said that those who deny the occurrance of the "Holocaust" and who hitherto have focused their activities on Europe and America "are now trying to spread anti-Semitism in the Muslim states where there is an evil record of using denial of the holocaust against Israel."

In Foxman's opinion the tense situation in the Middle East now provides fertile ground for those who deny the occurance of the holocaust. Jewish organizations have informed the State Department and Congress of their position in opposition to the conference in Beirut and demanded that they put pressure on the American administration in turn to put pressure on Lebanon to ban the convening of the conference.
