Good Morning from the Zundelsite:

Continuing with ZGram # 7 of the David Cole Defection Series:

As I said yesterday, the David Cole Defection development within the Revisionist camp was a serious setback. Although there was no question in many people's minds that David's so-called "confession" might have been coached, to put it euphemistically, nonetheless it put the highly effective David Cole Video Campus Campaign on hold, at least for the time being.

While the Zundelsite held back on an official response so as to give CODOH time to formulate a reasoned reaction and find ways to regroup for a revised Revisionist outreach, the following was posted on the CODOH website:

  THE OTHER SHOE DROPPED in the David Cole
affair. As we surmised, the veiled death threats of
the Jewish Defense League, designed to frighten and
intimidate, finally had their effect: David Cole
has now formally renounced his revisionist views.

  In a two page letter that reads like a
Nuremberg affidavit shoved in front of a groggy
German prisoner for signing, David Cole now repents
for all of his activities as a revisionist,
including the video on Auschwitz, and in addition
asks for forgiveness, describes his shame, his
contrition, and the wild eyed self hatred that, he
now says, animated all of his revisionist work.
Naturally, the JDL has posted the recantation with
gloating triumph.

  Well, you have to admit it's newsworthy. The
man advertised as the only Jewish revisionist has
now come out and shamefacedly condemned all of his
revisionist labors. One wonders why: but, of
course, it must be because the Holocaust happened
just as we have always heard! But think again.
David Cole has not been active in Holocaust
revisionism for some time, and only now has he
chosen to renounce it. And moreover he has chosen
to recant at the same web address that until now
had carried a scurrilous collection of smears and
veiled death threats about him. The recanting was
obviously inspired by the threatening page, the
same way the cashier was inspired to hand over the
cash after being inspired by the gunman's weapon.

  If the Jewish Defense League was more
perceptive they would realize that such a
retraction, written in response to obvious threats,
points only to the fear they arouse, not to any
response that fear evokes. But perhaps we give
people too much credit. Perhaps many will consider
the JDL-inspired retraction as simple proof that
the standard story is the way it really was. But we
challenge the reader. Read the retraction at
www.jdl.org/cole.html, savor the Maoist groupthink
that composed it, and then go out and read David's
article "46 Unanswered Questions Concerning the Gas
Chambers" and watch his acclaimed video, and ask
yourself: which work has more substance? Which was
inspired by curiosity and the desire to know, and
which by coercion and a desire to appease? Make up
your own mind.


  The funny thing about Cole's retraction is that
in a cosmic way it simply confirms what
revisionists have been saying all along. For over
twenty years, revisionists have said that the
German confessions, wildly inaccurate and
contradictory, were given not so much in response
to direct physical torture as from the desire to
protect themselves and above all their families
from retaliation and hardship. For Cole's
retraction, the JDL boasts that it was the result
of their previous page, and that Cole "was afraid
for his life and the relatives he supposedly is
taking care of." So for those who didn't believe it
possible that the Germans involved in the
concentration camps could have been intimidated
into make abject confessions, the idea is
strikingly confirmed by Cole's retraction, and
furthermore the JDL is waving the proof right under
your nose.

  Of course, it's likely that the JDL and other
agencies who hypocritically proclaim themselves the
protectors of the Jewish people see Cole's
recanting differently. No doubt they see it as one
more proof, along with the German confessions, of
their special and intolerant interpretation of the
Holocaust. And that's the key, because now we know
what forces inspired both the confessions and the
retraction. Because, you see, the most powerful
proof of the Holocaust has always been the threat
of force."

To be continued tomorrow: "What does it all mean?"
Thought for the Day:

"We discover that we must tread lightly for fear of bruising equalitarian feelings, though they trample roughshod over ours. A situation of this kind will not be permanently endured."
