Denial

I don’t get it. The result of Hitler’s “Final Solution” was witnessed by millions of US, British and Soviet servicemen in the years after WWII. Auschwitz-Birkenau, Belzec, Chelmno, Majdanek, Sobibor, and Treblinka. Tragic reminders of the effect of uncontrolled bigotry and racism. Not just against Jews but also homosexuals, gypsies and mental defectives. It was a blight on the human race that we have yet to live down.

Now, sixty years later, insane leaders in the Middle East are claiming it never happened, entire terrorist organizations are dedicated to the destruction of every living Jew on the planet and now ... a British historian goes over to the Dark Side. Why are these people so obsessed over Jews? It makes no sense whatsoever. Jews haven’t started a major war since Jericho. Jews don’t preach hatred of other people or religions. Yet down through history, Jews have been the “red-headed stepchild” of the human race. Blamed for darn near everything bad. Why?

It has always been a mystery to me because I have several Jewish friends and have known dozens of Jews in my life. I could detect no evil mind-control, money-grabbing conspiracy in any of them. In fact, they were all just like you and me and nearly every other person on the planet ... with the exception of the insane, irrational people who possess a blind, burning hatred of them or just plain ignorance like Mr. Irving below.

Please, somebody enlighten me. What am I missing here? What does the human race stand to gain by denying evil? When are we going to learn that the only to stop evil is to fight it. Over and over again, if necessary ....

VIENNA, Austria (BBC)

Jailed British historian David Irving has again said he does not believe Hitler presided over a systematic attempt to exterminate Jews in Europe. During his trial in Austria, Irving said he had changed his mind over claims the Holocaust did not happen. But, speaking from his cell, he asked BBC News why, if such a programme existed, “so many survived”.

He is appealing for a reduction in the three-year jail term. Prosecutors are seeking for it to be lengthened. The Austrian state prosecutor’s office said it believed Irving’s sentence was too lenient in light of a possible sentence of up to 10 years. The prosecutor also deemed the sentence too light because of “Irving’s special importance to right-wing radicals”, a spokesman for the office said.

The historian pleaded guilty in his one-day trial in Vienna on Monday. In his trial, the 67-year-old admitted that in 1989 he had denied that Nazi Germany had killed millions of Jews. Speaking from prison, where he is in solitary confinement for 23 hours each day, Irving told BBC News he now believed there had been isolated cases of Jewish people being gassed during World War II.

However, he added that “Hitler’s own involvement has a big question mark behind it”, before repeating his belief that an extermination policy did not exist. “Given the ruthless efficiency of the Germans, if there was an extermination programme to kill all the Jews, how come so many survived?” he said.

The charges against Irving arose from comments he made in Austria in 1989 denying the existence of gas chambers at Auschwitz. Austria is one of 11 countries with laws against denying the Holocaust. The historian previously said that he doubted the Holocaust’s existence until he saw the personal files of Adolf Eichmann, the chief organiser of the Holocaust.

“I said that then based on my knowledge at the time, but by 1991 when I came across the Eichmann papers, I wasn’t saying that anymore and I wouldn’t say that now,” Irving told the court. “The Nazis did murder millions of Jews.”

In the past, he had claimed that Adolf Hitler knew little, if anything, about the Holocaust, and that the gas chambers were a hoax. Irving’s lawyer has said his client is unlikely to serve the full three-year term because of various factors, including his age.

Not that very many people ever read this far down, but this blog was the creation of Allan Kelly and his friend Vilmar. Vilmar moved on to his own blog some time ago, and Allan ran this place alone until his sudden and unexpected death partway through 2006. We all miss him. A lot. Even though he is gone this site will always still be more than a little bit his. We who are left to carry on the BMEWS tradition owe him a great debt of gratitude, and we hope to be able to pay that back by following his last advice to us all:
  1. Keep a firm grasp of Right and Wrong
  2. Stay involved with government on every level and don't let those bastards get away with a thing
  3. Use every legal means to defend yourself in the event of real internal trouble, and, most importantly:
  4. Keep talking to each other, whether here or elsewhere

Oh, and here's some kind of visitor flag counter thingy. Hey, all the cool blogs have one, so I should too. The Visitors Online thingy up at the top doesn't count anything, but it looks neat. It had better, since I paid actual money for it.
