I suppose that Mr. Berg can present some evidence that it is possible to
split an atom?  The fission bomb hoax has at best a year or two before
it is seen through.

I am impressed at the level of scholarship shown by these two typical
"revisionist scholars."  What intellect!  What historical and scientific

So strange that Mr. Marques should repost his drivel so long after its

Markiewicz, Gubala, and Labedz of the Institute of Forensic Research,
Crakow, demonstrated that HCN was present in the homicidal gas chambers at
levels above background.  

I quote from their paper available at:

The IFRC researchers used a calibrated method that they checked against 
samples of known concentration as they went along. They discriminated against 
Prussian blue whose origin is not clear.  Leuchter and Rudolf did not do so,

Mr. Marques,

Next time you might try posting in English.
If you have complaints about Nizkor, direct them to Nizkor.
Anyone wanting to find successive replies can go to dejanews; not that
your replies have any content to them...

Reread Lucretius, hoaxer!  He claims that atoms are the smallest
possible particles.  You cannot have a part of an atom.  You hoaxers
keep changing the definition.  The fact that you are also ignorant of
the modern understanding shows nothing.

I point out also, that you cannot make a fission bomb with U238 and that
plutonium is not a naturally occurring element.  That rules out Uranium
and Plutonium for you so-called fission bomb.  It's physically
impossible.  Next thing you'll be claiming that nuclear reactions do not
conserve mass when we all know that conservation of mass is a LAW.

We have testimony, missing Jews, physical evidence and in general a
convergence of all the evidence.  The same as for the moon, atomic
weapons, the Hiroshima bombing etc.

See for more detail:

In other words, Mr. Marques admits that he can post no physical evidence
that Hiroshima was bombed.

If there are "tons" of evidence, i am sure that you can present at least
a dozen or so citations of such evidence held by DoD.  Please do so.
Of course you will come up with something about the Enola Gay, a plane
that never existed.

lie about my words.

You've got it backwards, old son.  Those examples are brought up by
Nazis like you and refuted by people like me.  I thought that by now you
would be embarrassed to discuss Ausrotten, btw, after you were shown up
for such a fool in alt.revisionism.

the RIF story is true it is not.  The Nazis did not mass produce soap

In other words, you dismiss the evidence presented by historians and the
legitimate process of revision because you don't want to believe it, but
you have nothing to say except to repeat the soap rumors that we all
agree are untrue.  You are a typical "revisionist scholar."

I see; you can produce no bodies.  Yet, you claim that people were
killed.  You can present no feasible murder weapon either.

No, you are claiming that a conventional weapon was unconventional.
Seems like a contradiction to me.  BTW- do you mean to claim that Zyklon
pellets do not exist?  Do you deny that HCN can kill?

Here we have Mr. Marques claiming Dresden was bombed with quicklime.
That is clearly impossible.  As a "revisionist scholar" I am allowed to
misconstrue what my opponents say.  If they point out the tactic, it is
censorship.

Mr. Marques expects us to believe him on faith.  He presents absolutely
no evidence.

I note again that he intentionally obfuscates the legitimate process of
history.  He cannot show a single serious historian who claims that
"mass water electrocution" occurred.  The fact that people sometimes
make false statements does not prove that all statements are false.
My reasoning is every bit as good as Marques.


For example.  My parents lied to me about the tooth fairy.  They also
told me that Dresden happened.  Clearly, they must have been lying about
that too.

Because Mr. Marques says so; yet he can post no testimonies of Dresden
and we are to believe it happened.

I see; so we should compare modern cremation with respect for the dead
to the cremation in the camps.  Likewise we should compare Dresden's
fire to my barbecue.  Dresden was supposed to kill people by starving
them of oxygen.  My barbecue _never_ does that!

In other words, you cannot agree on what country Dresden is in.
Kremas I-V have not jumped around; bunker 11 has not jumped around.
I am using the very same type of reasoning that you do and you cannot
refute it, Nazi-boy.

Where was Krema II in 1948, 1965, 1983, and 1997?  Please demonstrate
that it has moved.

You may make some specious claim about an individual chamber or two, but
you are ignoring the legitimate process of history.

Please demonstrate that Hilberg, Gilbert, or Piper has located a gas
chamber in a place where there is no longer consensus that it is
located.  
>

See Harry Mazal's excellent essay on the very real gas chamber at Dachau
at
http://holocaust-history.org

Whether this gas chamber was ever actually used, I do not know, but
there is some evidence for its use.

Yes, you are lying about history.  Legitimate historians never
attributed most of the deaths to Auschwitz almost alone.
You ought to know better than to try that one.

On the contrary, deniers use exactly that kind of reasoning along with
misinterpreting intentionally the claim that there were no extermination
camps on German soil.  It's _exactly_ the same game and you cannot beat
it when applied to Dresden.

No.   have shown a number that is significantly different than yours.  
Last week 250,000, this week 35,000 next week 170.  The Dresden hoax is 
diminishing.

Deniers do not address Hilberg's method, or Gilbert's method either.
That the numbers are different is sufficient by revisionist method
(tm).

On the contrary, you resist the smaller numbers by insisting on other
sources.  Historians disagree; therefore the event did not happen.

I'll remind you that Reitlinger estimated 4.8 million victims of the
final solution, Hilberg 5.1 million, and Gilbert 5.7 million.  No dogmas
exist.  No one calls Reitlinger or Hilberg Holocaust-deniers.  That's
because they rely on legitimate evidence for their claims unlike you.

My opposition to censorship is well known.  I agree that you have the
right to lie.  The fact that some would improperly censor your lies does
not make them into truths.  They are still lies.

Greetings,

Actually, Prussian Blue does not always form as I will demonstrate by
referencing Rudolf's own source in the near future.

In the meantime:


Markiewicz, Gubala, and Labedz of the Institute of Forensic Research,
Crakow, demonstrated that HCN was present in the homicidal gas chambers at
levels above background.  

I quote from their paper available at:

http://www.nizkor.org/hweb/orgs/polish/institute-for-forensic-research/



	The results of analyses are presented in Tables I-IV.  They
	unequivocally show that the cyanide compounds occur in all the
	facilities that, according to the source data, were in contact with
	them.  On the other hand, they do not occur in dwelling accomodations,
	which was shown by means of control samples.



The IFRC researchers used a calibrated method that they checked against 
samples of known concentration as they went along. They discriminated against 
Prussian blue whose origin is not clear.  Leuchter and Rudolf did not do so,
and their attempt to disprove the possibility of homicidal gassings
fails.

To be sure to meet "revisionist standards" tm it is necessary to post
physical evidence (not just forged photos and claims that physical
evidence exists, but actual physical evidence.)  Yet, Mr. Marques cannot
even cite testimony or documents yet claims that "tons" of such material
exists.

Everyone knows that combustion itself is physically impossible.

Well, it could have been used as a pretext to kill them.  In the Ottoman
Empire, Armenians in general were armed, not with much, outdated weapons
without a lot of firepower.  Still Ittihad used that as an excuse to
murder them.

Of course, if your're going to die either way, maybe it's just as well
to go out fighting.

I refer you to Lucretius.  If you are unable to read the literature on
the topic, it is not my fault.

And where does this supposed U235 come from?  I suppose you will give us
the usual story of using Graham's Law of Effusion to separate different
isotopes of uranium in uranium hexafluoride.  I note that the inverse
ration of the square roots of the masses is negligible and that anyway
the common story does not address the existence of other isomers of
fluorine.  Clearly this is a bunch of fiction.  It is not possible to
separate U235 from U238.

Of course I doubt Nagasaki.  It is supposed to have taken place with the
element "plutonium."  There is no such natural element.  I refer you to

You have no clue what you are babbling about.  Perhaps, you'd be so good
as to explain what collapsing a wavefunction has to do with splitting an
atom.  Of course, you'd have to know what a wavefunction is first.

It demonstrates that you are incapable of addressing the content of an
argument.  Your entire post consists of asserting that I made claims
that I never made, evading rational discourse, and engaging in
personality issues.  The fact remains that you cannot demonstrate the
existence of an atom bomb to the same standard that you demand for the
Holocaust.

Ah, yes a project that was supposedly top-secret yet which was also

Right, the story that a President of the United States did not know of

absurd, contradictory, physically impossible, and deceitful.

You cannot demonstrate the truth of an historical event that you believe
to be true to the standard that you demand for the holocaust.  You've
been exposed for the fraud that you are.

I use precisely the tactics that deniers use.  They refuse to believe in
an a historical event.  No matter what evidence is presented, they will
demand more.  No matter what documents are provided, they argue that
they are forged or do not say what they clearly say.  They operate on
the public's ignorance of history and science to make what is true seem
implausible, just as I can make fission seem implausible based on
"facts" known to the public.  You cannot prove the existence of a
historical event that you believe to be real to the same standard that
you demand for the Final Solution.  All you have done is evade my
arguments; why not try addressing them?

so doing demonstrate the bankruptcy of your position.

Yes, now compare that URL with the your words above.  The article does
not claim that _any_ soap was made from Jews.  In fact, it indicates
that the people experimented upon were probably not Jews.  It does not
say that the experiment was successful and it does not say that any such
soap exists.  Yet, you dishonestly twist this into the claim that Jewish
soap exists.  You lied and you were caught.

Additionally, the URL explicitly claims that the RIF story was a false
wartime rumour.

On the contrary, their first experiments demonstrated unequivocally the
presence of cyanides in Krema II.  Their later, more detailed and
sensitive experiments found cyanides in Kremas I-V and bunker 11.


Markiewicz, Gubala, and Labedz of the Institute of Forensic Research,
Crakow, demonstrated that HCN was present in the homicidal gas chambers at
levels above background.  

I quote from their paper available at:

http://www.nizkor.org/hweb/orgs/polish/institute-for-forensic-research/



	The results of analyses are presented in Tables I-IV.  They
	unequivocally show that the cyanide compounds occur in all the
	facilities that, according to the source data, were in contact with
	them.  On the other hand, they do not occur in dwelling accommodations,
	which was shown by means of control samples.



The IFRC researchers used a calibrated method that they checked against 
samples of known concentration as they went along. They discriminated against 
Prussian blue whose origin is not clear.  Leuchter and Rudolf did not do so,
and their attempt to disprove the possibility of homicidal gassings
fails.

You lied and you were caught.  You claimed that I believed in the
existence of Jewish soap.  You deliberately confused two separate
incidents.  The false wartime rumors and the the claims of
experimentation which are supported by evidence.

Unfortunately Rudolf did not tell the whole truth about his sources.
Perhaps,  Mr. Berg will be so kind as to tell us under what conditions
aqueous solutions of HCN can reduce iron (III) to iron (II).


Markiewicz, Gubala, and Labedz of the Institute of Forensic Research,
Crakow, demonstrated that HCN was present in the homicidal gas chambers at
levels above background.  

I quote from their paper available at:

http://www.nizkor.org/hweb/orgs/polish/institute-for-forensic-research/



	The results of analyses are presented in Tables I-IV.  They
	unequivocally show that the cyanide compounds occur in all the
	facilities that, according to the source data, were in contact with
	them.  On the other hand, they do not occur in dwelling accommodations,
	which was shown by means of control samples.



The IFRC researchers used a calibrated method that they checked against 
samples of known concentration as they went along. They discriminated against 
Prussian blue whose origin is not clear.  Leuchter and Rudolf did not do so,
and their attempt to disprove the possibility of homicidal gassings
fails.

My understanding is that the government did try to round up weapons
first.  My knowledge is limited here; so I don not want to say too much.
I'm not sure how successful the round up was and how much it was
cooperated with.  A lot of my understanding comes from Franz Werfel's
novel.  It is well researched, but it is only a novel, so without
further historical information, I'll leave it at that.

I do not entirely agree.  Whatever weapons Jews would have had would
have been far inferior to those available to the SS.  Additionally, in
our "what-if" fantasy the general population might have been armed as
well and I'm sorry to say that I do not think they would have taken up
the cause of the Jews.  The militias in Germany were quite well armed,
but most of them were co-opted by the NSDAP.

An interesting book on this topic is Martin Broszat's _Hitler and the
Collapse of Wermer Germany_.

Seems historically unlikely to me.  The NSDAP after all grew up as part
of the Folkish militia movement.  In order to get around Versailles,
private para-military forces were in vogue.  The Wehrmacht was willing
to tolerate the SA and others partly because of these facts.

That's a good point and is well in line with Hilberg's thesis.  By the
same token, if they were told to hand in their guns, one imagines the
same response.  Perhaps, that's the difficulty with hypothetical
history- it ignores the very real and significant cultural aspects of
history.

I think we are in agreement.  Except that it is my sense that the
Germans of today are different.  When I see the large anti-Nazi
demonstrations I begin to think that Germany is the last place where
history will repeat itself.

It's also the case that people have psychological coping mechanisms that
cause them to deny to themselves that they have no hope.

A minor delay does not seem like that big of a difference to me.  Also,
the propaganda value of claiming that Jews took up arms against Germany
would be immense.  They might be able to garner even more public
support.

I'm 34, actually, but I don't have a family and that truly is an issue.
Additionally, it's an easy thing to say when one is not actually
confronted with such an impossible choice.

The bottom line is that when a totalitarian system is out to get you,
you're screwed, if you'll pardon my vernacular.

In Bosnia, the populace managed to get some small arms, but because of
the arms embargo the JNA had a virtual monopoly on big artillery and
tanks.  I think the only think that limited the killing was the
introduction of US ground troops (and I do not mean to denigrate the
European effort, but US ground troops have a bigger deterrent effect.
I think that Kosovo will teach us the same lessons.

Do you think I am wrong to believe that today's Germans would resist
another attempt at the Final Solution?  Also, what if the victims were
Turks instead of Jews?

This event at Musa Dagh is precisely the event that Werfel chronicles.
I'd note two things:

1) I'm a bit suspicious that the source of this information might be
Werfel's novel.  Does Kopel or Simkin, Zelman and Rice, present a
historical source for their information?

2) What happened at Musa Dagh was the exception rather than the rule.
Most of the Armenians were mercilessly slaughtered.

What I asked for was a historical reference.  It's ok that you are
unable to provide one, but suggesting that the URL above is such a
reference is not a substitute for real historical evidence.

I may have a lead for what it's worth.  Peter Sourian in his
Introduction to the 1990 English translation of Werfel's book quotes
French scholar Yves Ternon's 1984 report to the Permanent People's
Tribunal in Paris 1984 as saying:



...In Jebel Musa, or Musa Dagh, the Armenians refused to submit to the
deportation order issued on 13 July.  Retreating into the hills they
took up a strategic position and organized an impregnable defense.  The
Turks attacked and were repulsed with huge losses.  They proceeded to
lay siege to Jebel Musa with fifteen-thousand men.  Fifty-three days
later, French and British ships, intercepting signal, picked up the
four-thousand survivors and took them to Port Said.



Sourian notes that Werfel changed it to 40 days for a Biblical
reference.  This is a lead, but not yet evidence.  If one wants to be
sure this account is factual, one ought to trace down Ternon's report
and follow the trail of evidence (being careful that it does not lead
back to Werfel's book.).

If we take the resisters at Musa Dagh to be the only resistors, yes,
but we don't know that to be the case.

Hannah Arendt argues compellingly in _Origins_ that the State was the
only institution in Europe that could protect Jews, that Jews were
outside of the class system and therefore could only hope for defense by
the state.  She sees this interest as well as the international
character of Jews and the prominence of the Rothschild's and a few
others as being at the roots of modern antisemitism.

She argues also that it is the goal of Totalitarian movements to destroy
the state and replace it with the Party.  In support of this claim she
points out the prominence of the SS and KGB w.r.t. the armies of the
Totalitarian countries.  The real power was held in Party institutions
and not the traditional institutions of State.  She argues that these
systems are Internationalist in nature and must destroy everything in
their path to achieve a kind of "permanent revolution."  As further
support for her argument, she argues that Mussolini, once in power, was
merely a dictator and no longer the leader of a Totalitarian movement.
He was content to master the institutions of State rather than destroy
them.  She points out also that Khruschev's ascendence to power depended
on the military and that the new prominence of the military heralded the
end of totalitarianism and the beginning of dictatorship.

I am only paraphrasing her argument and interested people should read
the book, but it is in line with the fact that the Nazis destroyed the
Weimar Republic and that the Republic was the only possible bulwark
against this or the other Totalitarian movement.
