> I don't know if you have seen my Site or not.  I encourage debate not hatred and racism.  I don't understand what is wrong with that?  We are allowed to debate the issue of whether or not there is a God. I guess what I'm saying is, "If we can question God's existence then, so long as it's not malicious, hateful or containing a hidden agenda.  What is wrong with discussing the Holocaust in that manner?  Why is it that  as far as I know -ANYTHING ELSE in History is open to debate. So why is the Holocaust the only subject "exempt" from this?  It's almost comparable to the Salem Witch Trials..But this is the 21st Century!
> 
> Isn't that a form of racism in itself?  I have learned much I did not know, since I founded the Site.  You mentioned Leuchter.  Two members have been debating the Leuchter report at length.  They have scientific backgrounds, and after reading there messages, and there have been many...Yes, I would agree with you, Mr McVay about Leuchter.  And you, in your last message told me something else about Leuchter I was not aware of.  That being; he lied at the Zundel Trial.

> OK, to close this letter - just two more things:
>  I really hope that what I'm about to say doesn't infact give you  pleasure.  As I have said more than once, I have a great respect for you - no matter what we may agree/disagree on.  I even told you about my being shot by neo-Nazis on April 30, 1994.  Please understand, sir, by telling you of that - I'm not looking for sympathy and indeed I don't like people feeling 'sorry' for me.  I did that in an attempt to make you understand I am no Nazi sympathizer!
> I wasn't expecting you to comment on.."how horrible that must have beeen for you."etc.  But I was also not expecting the manner in which you wrote to me.  And I'll tell you, and laugh if you must!  That really hurt me.  That someone I respect could do that!.  That's why I wrote back.  But you still spoke in the same tone. And it still hurts.  I must be a masochist to write a third message!  But, then again, my motto is:  "Never Say Die".
> 
> If positions had been reversed, Mr.McVay, and it was the Germans who were the victims and the Jews -the pertpetrators....And I had any lingering questions, I would be on the side of the Jews!  And one last line. If I had been alive during WW2, and been old enough.  I have little doubt I would have joined the Resistance.  Because I have always fought for the 'underdog', even as a child.
> 
> Well, as promised, I'll sign off now. It is my hope that when and if you reply to my message; that you speak to me as a human and not a "demon", as you may think of me at present.  For I am not one!  Why would I have written to you in the first place, Mr.McVay if I were that type of person?
