So I look forward to your response to this post. You were interviewed by the L.A. Times for a story which saw print on October 28, two weeks ago. You were quoted as saying: "We do not deny the existence of the Holocaust," he said. "That's a lie put forth by our opposition. We do say the claims of the Holocaust have been exaggerated. We believe there was no Nazi plan to exterminate the Jews during World War II. We also believe there were no Nazi gas chambers, and we also believe that 6 million Jewish victims [of the Holocaust] is an irresponsible exaggeration." You say (1) "6 million ... is an irresponsible exaggeration," (2) "no Nazi plan," and (3) "no Nazi gas chambers." You're being quite consistent, since you explained your views in almost exactly the same words on your first big entrance to the Internet, on Hitler's birthday, 1994. The problem, Mr. Raven, is that you also define the term Holocaust as (1) "the murder of six million Jews," (2) "as a central act of state by the Nazis," (3) "many in gas chambers." Since your statements about what you and your colleagues believe are in direct and total opposition to your own definition of the word, how can you also say "we do not deny the existence of the Holocaust"? This is a very simple question which you have dodged over and over again in the last two and a half years. I would appreciate your response, if you have one. Since you have called my analysis a "lie," I believe you at least owe it to me to explain your reasoning. Before you answer, you may wish to review my collection of your words and your colleagues' words on the subject, which is available at: http://www.nizkor.org/features/revision-or-denial/ Posted; emailed to Greg Raven; please reply publicly. -- Jamie McCarthy http://www.absence.prismatix.com/jamie/ firstname.lastname@example.org Co-Webmaster of http://www.nizkor.org/
