From the December 2006 Idaho Observer:
It’s not about the "Holocaust" you government-educated morons
TEHRAN—An international conference to publicly, and without fear of imprisonment, discuss the Holocaust was hosted by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad Dec. 11 and 12, 2006. The corporate U.S. media hoped to poison public opinion against the event, its sponsors and attendees by posing "White supremacist and former Ku Klux Klan Grand Wizard" (and former Louisiana state rep.) David Duke as the meeting’s poster child.
But the plan backfired on international television for two reasons: 1) The central theme of the conference was the right to free speech in pursuit of intellectual honesty and historical truth—not hatred for the Jewish people and; 2) David Duke is an extremely articulate man who is an ardent and well-informed opponent of Zionism—for very good reasons that are even recognized by non-Zionist Jews. On Dec. 12, 2006, MSNBC’s Rita Crosby asked Duke, "David, what are you doing in Iran; what are you doing at a conference which is basically debunking the Holocaust?"
Duke responded by stating, "The Conference is dedicated, as its organizers said, to freedom of speech and the fact is that in Europe there are men and women, sitting in prison, simply for uttering their opinion. Researchers, academics—there are 67 academics, college professors and other academics from all over the world—who have differing opinions on the Holocaust, some who may have mainstream opinions some who have controversial opinions, but it is a shame and a DISGRACE that there are people in European countries in PRISON for voicing an opinion."
He also pointed out that the Zionist neocons in the White House are responsible for the illegal war in Iraq and widening conflict in the Middle East.
Print media also sought comments from Duke. "The Zionists have used the Holocaust as a weapon to deny the rights of Palestinians and to cover up the crimes of Israel," the Associated Press quoted Duke as stating to the crowd of 70 conference attendees. "The Holocaust is the device used as the pillar of Zionist imperialism, Zionist aggression and Zionist murder," Duke added.
The main points Holocaust revisionist scholars seem to be going to prison over were also the main points of the conference: That the gas chambers were not used to exterminate Jews and the figure of six million is an exaggeration.
And therein lies the point: Why are researchers being sent to prison for daring to question the magic number of six million? Why are people sent to prison for voicing their opinion that the gas chambers were not used to mass murder innocent Jews (or gays, Catholics, Poles, Gypsies, blacks and Germans who opposed Hitler)?
If the gas chambers were used to mass murder people, why can’t those who claim the gas chambers were used to murder six million Jews prove their claims with facts and evidence? Why must their claim be backed up by the threat of prison?
More importantly, why the double standard for other controversial topics? Why doesn’t the Catholic Church lobby for people who think Mary Magdelaine was the wife of Christ be sent to prison? What aren’t people who publicly proclaim their belief that Jesus was a woman or a black man being sent to prison?
Stalin killed many more millions of people than Hitler—he began about the same time and continued until his death in 1953. Did he kill 20 million people or 60 million? If I have an opinion either way, why shouldn’t I go to prison?
Why? Because it’s history and only a few historians care about millions of dead Germans and Russians. But the Holocaust, as Duke explained, is the mechanism that Zionists hide behind so that people do not question the legitimacy of Israel and the concentration camps (three of them) being built to provide a "final solution" to the Palestinian problem.
