The original subject was "Jewish" racism, which lead quite naturally to
the ADL.  And I'm happy to report that I did verify what I claimed about
the "World of Difference" program: Discrimination against Arabs and Muslims
is not mentioned in the ADL's high school level notebook for teachers.

As for what the ADL has to do the Revisionism, I need only remark that 
they're the principle purveyors of anti-revisionist hate propaganda in the
U.S.

The ADL is of importance because it's one of the main sources of "Holocaust"
propaganda.  Other outfits in the same racket are the Simon Wiesenthal
Center in L.A., the U.S. Holocaust Museum in D.C., and Facing Hostory and
Ourselves (they brainwash teeny-boppers) right here in good old Boston.
That's "History" not "Hostory."

A quote from Schindler's List (the book) p. 148:

    ... one was asked to believe that in the midst of a desparate battle
    the National Socialists would devote thousands of men, the resources
    of precious railroads, an enormous cubic footage of cargo space, 
    expensive techniques of engineering, a fatal margin of their research-
    and-development scientists, a substantial bureaucracy, whole arsenals
    of automatic weapons, whole magazines of ammunition, all to an
    extermination which had no military or economic meaning but merely
    a psychological one.

Added to this, the Germans had a pretty good idea of what was in store for
them if they lost the war: the execution of their leaders, dismemberment
of their country, and wholesale slaughter of themselves.

You put yourself in their boots.  What would YOU do?

As for the museum, you can get canned directions to it by calling 488-0400.

Prtobably expecting too much, tho.

We have thousands of people who were there, too, who know it didn't
happen.  Unfortunately, most of them are afraid to come forward, for fear
of the consequences.  In the U.S., life is liable to be made quite
unpleasant for them.  In Germany, they get thrown in prison.

I understand your beloved partisans weren't especially scrupulous about
observing the Geneva conventions, either.  Upwards of a million (!) German
soldiers were murdered by these bandits. I can't blame the Germans for not
handling them with kid gloves.

As for the SS, by the end of the war it had become a European army, with
troops from France, the Baltic States, Norway, the lowlands, etc.  They
were all united in their common hatred of Communism.  The way these 
volunteers, Degrelle included, were persecuted after the war is utterly 
shameful.  

Do you really thing Eastern Europe fared better under the reds than it
would have under German control?  Interesting speculation.

                               Ross Vicksell

P.S.  There's a book by, you guessed it, Leon Degrelle, about the SS
on the Eastern Front.  You can get it from the IHR.

O.K., I will.  The Heritage Front used to show up at Irving's speaking
engagements in the Toronto area to control the exterminationist mobs that
were trying to break up the meetings.  Irving had nothing to do with their
being there.

Really, we revisionists are getting a little tired of hearing what a bad
guy David Irving is.  If your looking for bad guys, how about the guys who
not only try to keep him from speaking, but even from entering the country?
As a matter of fact, I don't think he can even get into Canada any more.

FYI, I'm 63.  I was 14 when WWII ended.

Actually, these survivors, young or old, have never been that convincing.
Elie Wiesel started out by saying that his father died in a coal mine but
later decided he died in a "gas chamber" after all.  Rudolf Vrba was, at
the time of time of the 1985 Zundel trial in Toronto, THE premier suvivor.

I quote from Michael Hoffman's book "The Great Holocaust Trial" :

     Vrba actually confessed that his book [I Cannot Forgive] was "an
     artistic picture... not a document for a court."  He agreed that
     he had never actually witnessed anybody being gassed to death but
     had heard rumors!

Mel Mermelstein is another professional "survivor" whose stories make
little or no sense.

And so forth.

That's why we insist on physical or documentary evidence; eyewitnesses
just can't resist blending fact and fantasy, so you can't tell which is
which.

Dear Cecilia,

Once again, I must apologize for my petulant reaction to your avowal of
belief in gas chambers.  It was a knee jerk.  Maybe after we show you the
latest and greatest evidence of the non-existence of said chambers,
you'll come back into the fold.

I note you append an old-fashioned U.S.-Mail-type address to your post.
Would you rather I didn't send you e-mail?

I see what you mean about these anti-revisionists - they'd as soon call
you an anti-Semite as look at you.  Oh well, It goes with the territory,
as Bradley says.

        Ross

A note from one of my friends - you'll know who:

Cecilia: It is interesting to see your words on the screen concerning
Revisionism. I wonder if you would tell me what makes you believe that
Jews or others were gassed in gas chambers to kill them?  A full reply to
the question, giving all of your reasons could be very lengthy and
tiresome to you; a reply of any length would be interesting to me,
however. 
Are you suffering any harassment from people because of your revisionist 
views?       Stay well. Gott mit Uns!

           N.S.

Who says "entirely fabricated?".  There's a kernel of truth in what the
claim: there were concentration camps, and many European Jews were
imprisoned in them and many of these died there.

As for Dan Gannon, I have it on good authority that he is finally going to
answer those Ten Questions you've been hounding him with since God knows
when. Thank you for your patience.

It wasn't the (defunct) Nazis who extorted 100 billion deutchmarks from the
Germans AFTER the war.  It isn't the Nazis who have been laying a perpetual
guilt trip on the Germans for the last 50 years.  It wasn't the Nazis who
murdered three million Germans AFTER the war.  And you do have a foul mouth.

Glad you asked.  Ernst Zundel had as Canadian named John Ball on his SW
radio show last Sunday.  Ball is an expert on the interpretation of aerial 
photographs.

He has concluded from studying wartime aerial photographs of the Plaszow
concentration camp that it would have been quite impossible for Goethe to
pick off hapless concentration camp inmate from his front porch, because
there was a big hill in the way.  Maybe he could have used a mortar? 

Ernst remarked on the disclaimer that appeared on the copyright page of
Schindler's List, the novel: "This book is a work of fiction.  Names,
characters, places, and incidents are either products of the authors
imagination or are used fictitiously.  Any resemblance to actual events
or locales or persons, living or dead, is entirely coincidental."

I think maybe Spielberg should have put a similar disclaimer in front of
his movie.

I apologize for posting something you've seen more than once before, but my
partners in crime didn't give me a very thorough briefing on what to do 
before they assigned me to the net a couple of weeks ago.

There's not much point in trying to differentiate between "good" Germans
and "bad" Nazis.  The fact is that overwhelming majority of Germans
were enthusiastic supporters of Hitler in the 30's: It was only when
the going got rough during the war that the people started getting
disenchanted with Nazism.

As for Jewish-American attitudes toward the Germans, I'd like to believe
it's as you say, that they're softening.

Certainly that's been the case in Israel, with the Israel Philharmonic 
playing Wagner for the first time.

News to me.  I thought I'd made a few valid points.  Besides, you're the
ones doing the accusing.  The burden of proof is on you.  Show us a
picture or model of a gas chamber.  I mean something that makes a little

I'm bemused be the "until recently."  Alas, has another one of the IHR's
mysterious rich sources of funds dried up?  If the IHR is so rich,
why is it operating on a shoestring?

Let's hear it for healthy, he-man hate!  And if anyone knows about hatred,
it's you exterminationists.  Seems to be your stock in trade.

The reason I dwell on the shortcomings of Saint Eli is that he's not just
another "survivor."  He's THE survivor.  Mel Mermelstein didn't get invited
to talk at the Holocaust Memorial Dedication in Washington.  Eli Wiesel
did.

What's most interesting in McVay's lengthly post is the mention, in the
"epilog" of part 2, that Willis Carto has apparently been "purged" from the 
IHR.

What! But I thought that Willis Carto was the mastermind behind all the
NeoNazi-AntiSemitic hatemongering going on in America.  He's #1 on the
ADL's list of the countries top ten anti-Semites.  You would think that if
anyone were doing the purging it would be he. 

Actually, Willis Carto's anti-Semitism about as authentic as his
neo-Nazism. I recommend reading the chapter "Willis Carto" in Mark
Lane's Plausible Denial, a book about the CIA role in the Kennedy
assassination, which you can find in almost any library.  Lane says: 

"On more than one occasion we [Carto and Lane] have spent the evening
sipping Blanton's, a fine Kentucky bourbon, exploring the vagaries of
world politics and exchanging world views.  I have never heard an
anti-Semitic expression from him in all these years.  I believc my own
life, marked by a struggle against all forms of racism, has created for
me adequately sensitized antennae so that if the offense was present, even
in latent form, I would have discerned it."

           - Plausible Denial, page 124

A personal note:  I deplore the feud between Carto and the IHR; I'd rather
 see revisionists working together than grabbing at each others' throats.

Oncer again I've made a minor slip.  It was Menachen Begin, not Golda
Meir, who called the Arabs two-legged animals, and not just once, but
consistently, apparently.

The following quote is from a pamphlet called "Fort Apache: The Mideast"
published by the Revolutionary Communist Party, based on articles that
appeared in the Revolutionary Worker.  They, in turn are quoting from
page. 257 of Noam Chomsky's "The Fatal Triangle."

    "In my childhood I suffered fear, hunger, and humiliation when I passed
    from the Warsaw Ghetto, through labor camps, to Buchenwald.  Today, as
    a citizen of Israel, I cannot accept the systematic destruction of 
    cities, towns and refugee camps.  I cannot accept the technological
    cruelty of the bombing, destroying and killing of human beings.

    I hear too many familiar sounds today, sounds that are being amplified
    by the war. I hear 'dirty arab' and I remember 'dirty Jew.' I hear about 
    'closed areas' and I remember ghettos and camps. I hear about 'two-legged
    beasts' [the designation for Arabs commonly used by Begin - Revolution
    Worker] [I bet he cleaned up his language at Camp David - Ross Vicksell]
    and I remember 'Untermenschen.'  I hear about about tightening the 
    siege, clearing the area, pounding the city into submission and I
    remember suffering, destruction, death, blood and murder ... Too many
    things in Israel remind me of too many other things in my childhood."

                  Dr. Shlomo Shmelzman, who was forbidden by the directors
                  of the Yad Vashem Holocaust Memorial Center
                  to conduct a hunger strike there against the
                  Lebanon War.

According to the NY Times of March 17th, "Germany's highest appeals court 
has reversed the conviction of a far-right leader [Guenter Deckert] on a 
charge of inciting racial hatred, saying that publicly repeating another 
person's denial of the Holocaust was not in itself enough to prove the 
charge."  The story says Deckert had been charged with "translating and 
commenting on a speech by an American neo-Nazi, Fred Leuchter."

I know Fred personally. He's not a neo-Nazi.  In fact, I think he's quite
apolitical. But don't take my word for it.  Read about Fred in "The
Execution Protocol" by English author Stephen Trombley, who spent a fair
amount of time interviewing him.  His portrait of Fred is far from
complimentary, but he never even remotely suggests that Fred has any
far-right political leanings. 

Fred is just another out-of-work engineer.

As for the Hydergine, I looked it up in my drug book and saw where it had 
no bad side effects, unlike Holocaustomania, a.k.a. Exterminationitis, 
which seems to turn otherwise normal people into paranoid bigots.

90% of the Engineers in Massachusetts are unlicensed, an awful lot of 
law breakers, but then again Massachusetts is notorious for scofflawery; 
look at all the jaywalkers we have.

As a matter of fact, Fred tried more than once (this was long before the
Auschwitz expedition) to get the State Licensing Board to grant him a
license.  They didn't want to be bothered, because "execution equipment
engineer" was not one their standard categories.  The kinds of engineers
they were most concerned about licensing were those involved in designing
things where public safety was involved - things like bridges and office
buildings.

The reason Fred was dragged through the Middlesex County courts is 
because the Holocaust establishment, led by Beata Klarsfeld and Shelly 
Shapiro, leaned very hard on the D.A. to prosecute him.

Fred had never misrepresented his credentials, to either the prison 
officials he dealt with or to the courts before which he appeared as an 
expert witness.

The guy Beata and Shelly got to this time was the Asst. Attorney General 
of Alabama.

Credentialed authorities: an Austrian engineer, a German engineer, A
German chemist, and, how about this one, the Auschwitz Museum itself! 
They all agree with Fred's basic finding, that the traces of Hydrogen
Cyanide residue in the walls of the alleged gas chambers are negligible. 
Of course the museum folks try to explain this fact away by saying the
stuff weathered away over the years.

but cyanide does "hang around", in the form of ferric-ferrous-cyanide
or prussian blue pigment, which was present in abundance on and in the
delousing chambers.

A control sample WAS taken from one of these chambers.

As a matter of fact, I've scrupulously avoided calling any of you names,
which is a lot more than I can say for you guys.  I recall you criticized
me for saying "bullshit" once, but I said that about an assertion being
made, not about a person.  I can see why you all must feel the necessity
to resort to ad hominem arguments so much, since you don't have much else

I suggest you go back and read what I've said about our licensing board 
and their attitude toward which engineers need to be licensed.

It's true that, in general, people like Fred who were/are the head of an 
engineering firm have licenses.

But, once again, Fred never misrepresented his credentials to anyone.

I think the vast majority of the Germans were happy  under Naziism, at 
least during peacetime.  I find its authoritarian and anti-Semitic aspects
somewhat objectionable, however.

Quoting exterminationist historian Arno Mayer "Sources for the study of 
gas chambers are at once rare and unreliable," which doesn't square very 
well with the official line on the abundance of evidence.

Regarding aerial photos, isn't it strange that none of these photos, taken
on several random dates during the time the gas chambers were supposedly
going full blast, show any people lined up waiting to be gassed, or any
other indication that gassings were going on?

A few days ago, Danny Keren asked me to come up with some population
statistics to support my assertion that most of the missing east European
Jews wound up in the USSR, Israel, or the US.  The most substantial
revisionist treatment of the subject is in Walter Sanning's book "The
Dissolution of Eastern European Jewry", which is obtainable from the IHR. 
Since Sanning's book came out there has been additional research by a
German historian which points up the extent of the deportation of Jews to
White Russia by the Germans. 

Anyway, I suggest that Keren get hold of a copy of the book (I doubt that 
he'll find it in the Brown library) and read it, as a basis for further 
discussion.

You can push keys all you like but the fact of the matter is that he
has been convicted in a court of law of doing exactly that.

That's ok, it just shows everyone how credible you guys are. I mean,
is there anything that comes out of your keyboard that *isn't* just a

Fred's reply:

__________________________________________________________________

Dear Ross,

Received your fax.  Relative to your discussion with Barry Shein, he 
stated that I was convicted for representing myself as an engineer.

You know I was not.  The complaint was dismissed because it was 
spurious.  It is only illegal to represent oneself as a Registered 
Professional Engineer.  I never did that and the court dismissed the 
complaint.  Shein is a Bald Faced Liar and you can tell him I said so.
If he insists tell him to produce the conviction documents.  There are 
none the disposition was DISMISSAL.

He is the purveyor of "willful lies and distortions".

Fred

According to a story in The Boston Jewish Advocate, "Spielberg ... is 
giving all profits from the film to Holocaust-related causes ..."
"Spielberg and Universal Pictures have selected Facing History and 
Ourselves, a Brookline based educational foundation, to develop materials 
and work with teachers to help high school students to explore the issues 
raised by the film."

Illinois and New Jersey already have compulsory "Holocaust Education" laws
that mandate the indoctrination of H.S. students in these states with the
"approved" version of the Holocaust Story.

Except much pressure to be applied to state legislatures (and legislators)
in the other 48 states.

Stephen Ambrose, as Ike's official biographer, was scarcely a
disinterested party as far as evaluting James Bacques's discoveries is
concerned.  He and his cronies later did a book-length attempted
refutation of Bacque, "Eisenhower and the German POWs." Even the title is
a lie, since, as is well known, the German captives were denied POW status
just so the Americans wouldn't feel bound by the Geneva Conventions in
dealing with their them.  Most irregular. 

The general level of scholarship displayed in the book is exemplified by 
one of the photo captions which informs us that "Catholic Services ...
were not permitted by the German Wermacht during the war."

The most important fact to keep in mind is that it's against the law, and 
has been for some time, to question the "Holocaust."  

Nevertheless, there have been a few brave souls who have spoken up
(becoming, ipso facto, "crazy revisionists") , and have wound up with long
prison terms or heavy fines, or the equivalent. 

And at least one that I know of, Wilhelm Staeglich, was a government 
official, a judge.

I'm NOT engaging in a semantic quibble.  Hitler had no serious intentions 
of invading England, and Churchill knew it.  According to David Irving 
(page 379 of Churchill's War, V. 1): "This time Churchill was not to be 
outwitted.  Thanks to his codebreakers at Bletchley he now commanded a 
total,indeed Olympian, view which his subordinates were denied. ...  By
the end of July he certainly recognized that Sealion was a bluff."

Sure there was an Operation Sealion on paper, but so what?
