Zgram - Where Truth is Destiny: Now more than ever! December 17, 2004 Good Morning from the Zundelsite: The Holocaust smear-mongers are at it again! Read, first, their smearing Pat Buchanan by "association twice removed", and second, enjoy the follow-up reply by Pastor Mark Dankof. [Start] Former Senior Aide to Pat Buchanan Spoke at Holocaust-Deniers' Meeting 12/16/2004 8:05:00 AM ------------------------------------------------------------------------ To: National Desk Contact: Rafael Medoff of the David S. Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies, 215-635-5622 or rafaelmedoff at aol.com; Web: http://www.WymanInstitute.org MELROSE PARK, Pa., Dec. 15 /U.S. Newswire/ -- A former senior aide to talk show host and one-time presidential candidate Pat Buchanan spoke at a meeting of Holocaust-deniers earlier this year, according to this year's annual report on Holocaust-denial activity around the world. The year-end report, Holocaust Denial: A Global Survey - 2004, has been issued by The David S. Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies, which is located on the campus of Gratz College, near Philadelphia. The report's co-authors are Holocaust scholars Dr. Alex Grobman (author of a recent book on Holocaust denial) and Dr. Rafael Medoff (director of the Wyman Institute). The complete text of the Wyman Institute's report may be viewed on the Wyman Institute's web site, http://www.WymanInstitute.org The report notes that Peter Gemma, a senior staff member of Pat Buchanan's 2000 presidential campaign, spoke at a February 19, 2004 meeting in Virginia of the Institute for Historical Review, the leading Holocaust-denial organization in the United States. Gemma introduced the evening's keynote speaker, IHR director Mark Weber. The association of a former Buchanan aide with Holocaust- deniers is particularly noteworthy in view of Buchanan's own troubling positions concerning Hitler and the Holocaust. He has written that 850,000 Jews could not have been gassed in Treblinka because "diesel engines do not emit enough carbon dioxide to kill anybody"; he spoke out on behalf of accused Nazi war criminals Karl Linnas and Arthur Rudolph; he wrote columns defending Nazi death camp guard John Demjanjuk; he described Hitler as "an individual of great courage"; and he mocked Holocaust survivors' memories as "group fantasies of martyrdom and heroics." (The New Republic, Oct.15 and Oct.22, 1990) In his 1999 book, A Republic, Not an Empire, Buchanan argued that the U.S. should not have gone to war against Nazi Germany. Other highlights of this year's report: -- Holocaust-deniers in the United States continued their efforts to gain a measure of respectability in 2004, and benefitted from the willingness of several individuals of prominence to associate with them. In addition to the aforementioned Peter Gemma, a newsletter edited by pundit Alexander Cockburn defended imprisoned Holocaust-denier Ernst Zundel. Also, Hutton Gibson again publicly denied the Holocaust, while his son, actor Mel Gibson, declined to clearly dissociate himself from his father's views. -- Some Arab governments continued to actively promote Holocaust-denial in 2004, and a Holocaust-denier emerged as the leading candidate for chairmanship of the Palestinian Authority. -- A number of Western governments and other institutions took important steps against Holocaust-deniers. The Canadian government sought to deport Ernst Zundel; the government of New Zealand denied entry to David Irving; the French government brought charges against Bruno Gollnisch; Harvard University returned a gift from an Arab leader who promoted Holocaust- denial; and The Nation magazine said it would no longer accept advertisements from Holocaust-deniers. Most notably, U.S. intervention brought about the first-ever public disavowal of Holocaust-denial by an Egyptian government official. --- ABOUT THE WYMAN INSTITUTE: The David S.

Wyman Institute for Holocaust Studies 215-635-5622 rafaelmedoff at aol.com Web: http://www.WymanInstitute.org Mr. Medoff: I saw your coverage last evening of the IHR meeting in Arlington, VA and the accompanying commentary about the presence there of a man with connections to Pat Buchanan. I was present myself that evening in Arlington. I attended personally to evaluate Mark Weber and IHR for the first time without filtering through third parties. Frankly, I believe Mr. Weber made a compelling case that night for the Israeli-driven character of the current neo-conservative crusade in Iraq under the auspices of Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, David Wurmser, and others. His information dovetails with that found on Lew Rockwell.com, Antiwar.com, BATR, or any number of other American libertarian and paleo-conservative news sites of responsible orientation. For that matter, the documentation Mr. Weber utilized that evening coincides with that found regularly in the mainstream European press. The question is begged as to why the same data is systematically censored from regular discussion in the establishment print and electronic media in the United States. The other presentations in Arlington on the Zundel deportation to Canada and the social-cultural-political implications of America's changing demographic landscape were similarly non-rabid and well reasoned. From reading your report, one would have had the impression that the material covered and the people present were straight out of Kristallnacht. This is absurd on its face. The war in Iraq, the burgeoning AIPAC-Larry Franklin spy scandal, Israel's policies of occupation and genocide in Palestine, and the threat the Israeli Lobby presents to the First Amendment and freedom of speech in this country are beginning to awaken new sectors of the American public to the nature of the dangerous game being played. The orchestrated cries of "anti-Semitism" in response to honest Left-Right protests of these policies are intimidating fewer people by the day. Your long-term future, and that of other mainstream Jewish lobby NGOs and PACs, will be one of more accountability and less Federal government subsidy. Present circumstances and more dissemination of alternative, credible information in an Internet age will necessitate this. Chief among these will be the future mental connection made by more Americans between the Likudnik policies of the neo-conservatives and the flag-draped coffins enshrouded in Red-White-and Blue and returning to Dover AFB in Delaware. And these legitimate, lawful protests will also proceed as the institutions of the New World Order continue to destroy American Constitutional presuppositions and government at home. Of this, you can rest assured. Sincerely, Mark Dankof www.MarkDankof.com [END] .
