    Re: Tehran Holocaust Conference

    BBC publishes on it today:

    Iran Holocaust conference opens

    Mr Ahmadinejad accuses Israel of trading off a "Holocaust myth"
    A two-day conference which says it will examine whether the Holocaust actually happened has opened in Iran.
    Organisers insist the event will offer a chance to discuss "questions" about the Holocaust without taboos.
    Several countries have condemned the conference, including Germany - where Holocaust denial is a crime.
    Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who backs the event, has publicly questioned the scale of the Holocaust, in which six million Jews were killed.
    According to the Foreign Ministry in Tehran, 67 researchers from 30 countries are attending the conference in Iran, which is home to 25,000 Jews.
    Its main aim is to create an opportunity for thinkers who cannot express their views freely in Europe about the Holocaust
    Manouchehr Mottaki
    Iranian foreign minister
    Participants include a number of well-known "revisionist" Western academics. American David Duke, former leader of the Ku Klux Klan, is to present a paper.
    But a number of Jewish rabbis are also there. One, British Rabbi Ahron Cohen, said he had come to the conference to put the "Orthodox Jewish viewpoint" across.
    "We certainly say there was a Holocaust, we lived through the Holocaust. But in no way can it be used as a justification for perpetrating unjust acts against the Palestinians," he said.
    'Express views freely'
    Opening the conference, Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki said the aim of the conference was "not to deny or confirm the Holocaust".
    "Its main aim is to create an opportunity for thinkers who cannot express their views freely in Europe about the Holocaust," he said.
    But earlier, a spokesman for Iran's foreign ministry, Manouchehr Mohammadi, said the conference would examine fundamental questions about the Holocaust.

    Iran's president regularly speaks out against the Holocaust
    "The first question to be posed is: did the Holocaust actually happen or not? And the second one is: if it did happen, what was the scale of it?

    Re: Tehran Holocaust Conference

    http://www.nationalanarchismus.org/N..._the_west.html

    Peter Töpfer

    Save the West!

    Speech at the Tehran Conference „Review of the Holocaust: Global Vision“, 11–12 December 2006

    „Won’t need no shadow man
    Runnin’ the government
    Won’t need no stinkin’ war.
    We live in the garden of Eden, yeah,
    Don’t know why we wanna tear the whole thing down
    And we’ve got to get ourselves
    Back to the garden“
    Neil Young, After The Garden, Living With War, 2006*


    Gentlemen,

    I would like to thank the Institute for Political and International Studies and the Foreign Ministry of the Islamic Republic of Iran for the organization of this conference and for inviting me to present my thoughts.

    When we lived in East Germany where only a very limited freedom of opinion existed critical voices of people from East Germany were heard in Western media. These voices had no other chance to be heard. Of these voices, let me mention one singer whose songs we listened to enthusiastically on Western radio stations. This singer has since switched sides to the radical Right and supports all kinds of wars of the supposed West as well as a racist regime in the Middle East which only survives because of terror and foreign money. Even back then, this singer was not really opposed to the ruling elite; he enjoyed protection from above and great commercial success. In contrast, another critical voice – the philosopher Rudolf Bahro who suggested an alternative to the rule of the stupid Communists in a book published in the West – was sent to jaiI for years. When he was finally released and emigrated to the West, he continued to be a critical and independent spirit, and it did not take long before he was denounced as a „right-wing radical“.

    East Germans debated whether it was appropriate to address domestic problems in Western media. But those who were really interested in freedom of opinion – this was the most important aspect in the critical Opposition in East Germany – used of course all available channels.

    Thousands of East German dissidents fled to the West. They simply could not stand living anymore under the stupid people in power. They wanted something out of life, to freely breathe, to freely speak and enjoy the colors of the world.


    ***


    But strangely enough, I today stand here and try to be heard outside of the country in which I live. From a foreign country, I hope to influence my own country, which has revealed itself to be only seemingly democratic and free. Yes, the freedom of opinion in the West has proven itself to be an illusion. Here too, many people are sitting in prison because they think and speak differently than the rulers want.

    It seems to me that freedom of opinion is jumping from island to island. In reality, it is always fleeing. But, at least it exists at all.

    To make myself heard, I am using this conference where a historical event is supposed to be discussed, or the question whether this historical event even took place in the way that some people claim. These people send those who disagree with their claims to court and prisons.

    I am neither a historian nor a humanist. I am an artist and publisher. Above all, I am an advocate of freedom of expression for all people in Germany and throughout the world: Freedom to speak one’s mind without being persecuted, harassed and locked up for it. This is how I view the West – my home. The West is an open space, a place where people talk freely about everything – for example, in a café in Stockholm or in a small French coastal town, and then go home in good spirits. The West is a thing that is open for anything to freely discuss, the „res publica,“ the Republic. But that is not the case in present-day Germany.

    I am not willing to give up the concept of free expression upon which the West is based, this incredibly beautiful thing, and deliver it to ruling criminals.

    The bemoaned lack of freedom of opinion in Germany is closely related with the subject of our conference: Certain people are punished with prison for expressing their historical views and treated like dangerous criminals. At this moment, the scientist Germar Rudolf is brought into the court room with hand and food cuffs. This – not the subject of this conference, given by the Organizers – animates me as a freedom activist. In today’s Germany, people can be tried and convicted for challenging accepted canon about the Second World War – its origins, its execution, and its victims. This war is everything but a „res publica.“

    But whatever the reasons for the criminal criminalization of expressed opinions – the reasons are secondary. What counts is that a person named Germar Rudolf is now sitting in a German prison.


    ***


    lt is legitimate that participants and victims of a war, and their heirs have their own views on the subject. War is so cruel and its suffering so great that neither side understands, or wants to understand, the other.

    But it is not legitimate and an affront to human dignity if one wants to force upon the other a view, like the lawyer Alain Jakubowicz did to the scientist Bruno Gollnisch on November 7, 2006 in a court in Lyon.

    Even with all the indescribable atrocities that were committed by all parties during the Second World War and in the years following, I believe that the cause of today’s injuries to dignity and integrity have little to do with that past suffering. My impression is that the peoples have long since made up. This impression I did not only get from reports of veterans meetings and the since developed friendships between old warriors, this impression I get from all areas of life. Most people from the most different nations have a painful memory of the war, and the many injuries have partly been inherited by the succeeding generations.

    But all that leads these people to only one realization: Never again war! I think about all the honest, righteous and peace-loving people in all of our countries that never desire war.


    ***


    There are basically two kinds of history. First, the real memories and imprints of people that often are without words but comprised only of pictures and emotions. Second, there’s history approved by the state and those currently in power, history from pulpits that reaches us with many large words. We always hear the grandiose words that one has to learn from the past. But these words are often empty and without any real content related to life and experience. People have already learned. And if not, then because they still trust the rulers instead of trusting themselves. The decreed history – whatever it postulates – has nothing to do with the learning from history. lt only serves to secure the power structure.

    Even if it revolves around those who presumably carry the main guilt of the war – the Germans –, the state propaganda is ineffectual and does not penetrate into the real life of the peoples. The Germans are – in contrast to the worldwide and constant indoctrination from above – respected by real people worldwide and even popular. This is why it is even more scandalous when, as of late, Germans let themselves be used to participate in wars. These Germans are gambling away our good reputation and make enemies, where in reality we only want peace and friendly relations with other peoples.

    Why does the current German government continue to make enemies for its citizens? For completely alien interests! For the interests of rich Americans that have captured Afghanistan and want to use it for a base to conduct further conquests in Asia, so that they can become even richer. Also for the interests of people who believed that they could expropriate a whole country and expel its inhabitants and that now have to defend themselves against the resistance of these dispossessed and expelled. For this, battleships that bear the names of our proud German lands and tribes patrol today on the Levantine coasts! And these missions are supported by a propaganda that constantly babbles about „democracy“ and „Western values.“ Of course, like a mantra, the „official history“ has to serve its purpose, namely that we should „learn“ from it. As a matter of course, the violent export of state models are thus scandalously justified. The notion of national self-determination has completely disappeared from the synchronized media.

    Those that pretend to respect the Western ideal of freedom of expression lecture the whole world – while controlling other nations economically and with military force: nations that are supposed to govern themselves. lt is obvious that all the talk about democracy and the history, from which we are supposed to learn, is a total lie. Who is the warmonger and constantly tells us about humanity? Who conducts expeditions and talks about a peace that supposedly has to be enforced through military means? Is it the German children that are constantly being told that they have to learn from history? Children who have to listen to a litany of a heartless, mechanical propaganda, that shamefully is lead with the words democracy and human rights and whose sole purpose is war.

    lt is obvious for whose interests this boring propaganda is daily being dumped on people. The Germans were always honest when they said that never again war will come from German soil, and never again a German soldier would march into other countries. They were cured of war, they had enough of it. They did not need any propaganda or history lesson. The school of life is very effective.

    Now it is revealed why these permanent history excesses have been conducted over the years in the media and schools: so that the Germans would still be at the disposal of the victors of the war and for their further wars.

    The Germans were surprised for a short time at how Israel, of all countries!, expressly wished that German soldiers should interfere in the Middle East, but then they quickly were ready for Israel with their weapons. Not only do these soldiers risk their lives for foreign interests – they actively support an extremely unjust and evil thing: the violent implantation of a construct that had to become the enemy of the displaced Palestinians and their allies since it is an apartheid system that strictly separates itself, on racial principles, from the assaulted population and makes any kind of reconciliation impossible. It is only logical when we Germans also get to know this enmity.

    We still have a good reputation among most people in the affected areas. If some Germans are willing to die for foreign interests and for the subjugation of justice – at any rate, we wiII not let our good reputation be ruined. And we – on our part - will not let the peaceful coexistence of nations be destroyed.

    We demand the immediate return of all German soldiers!

    I am happy that the organizers of this conference have chosen the same day as the International Human Rights Day. Recently, the human rights situation in the West has dramatically worsened: People that are being declared hatemongers are already under the jurisdiction of anti-terror laws. We know who is meant with the word „hatemongers“: revisionist historians. They are not even entitled to court proceedings anymore. Soon they will disappear into the dungeons without legal proceedings. To stop this disastrous development and revert it, we need a fighting spirit and the radical return to our Western values.

    In the non-oppositional German media, one can sometimes notice silent objections about the fact that people who allegedly deny something are punished for this denial. (By the way, how can one know that someone is denying?) The writer Bernd Wagner writes on November 4, 2006 in the „Berliner Zeitung“: „When the denial of the genocide of the European Jews was made a punishable offense, no critical voices were raised. But the problem of such measures is clear: the ones unwiIling to learn will not be converted by the use of laws. Instead they can feel themselves as martyrs, becoming even less receptive to arguments. Such a law does not protect the truth, but endangers it because it makes a ghetto out of that which is surrounded by taboos in which it becomes a risk to think about it.“

    Bernd Wagner might be forgiven if he did not hear the numerous critical voices against paragraph 130 of the penal code; maybe it was because of the brutal oppression that they were only very faintly audible... But what is more of interest is where Bernd Wagner sees „the problem“: namely that the conversion of those unwilling to learn might not work. He views laws as bad means for conversion. But what place does a conversion have in an open and pluralistic society? Wagner talks about an „alleged truth.“ I, who think of myself as a Westerner, would never talk about Bernd Wagner’s truth as an „alleged“ one. Why would I do that? I would simply leave it up to Bernd Wagner himself to believe what is true and what is false. And if he sticks to his truth (which deserves respect today), then I do not assume that he wants to feel like a „martyr.“ According to Wagner, „the truth“ (Which one? The true truth, the objective one?) must be „protected.“ In a truly Western society, no truth is protected: The truths live next to each other, or they present themselves, discuss or compete on equal terms with each other.

    It is not the responsibility of the state to protect the truth, but to protect the bearer of truth, namely from the danger of being forced to submit or convert to another truth.

    How much we have distanced ourselves in the West from the mind of Enlightenment demonstrates a report in 1997 (nineteen ninety seven) by the agency of „Protection of the Constitution” (secret service) in regard to Sleipnir. Journal for Culture, History and Politics. The reason for being scrutinized by intelligence: „The importance of Sleipnir is the open debate that it facilitates.” Indeed, the secret service denounced the publishers to have given room for an „open debate“! This is unbelievable!

    Furthermore, a Berlin Court decreed in the year 2000 a penalty against the editor of Sleipnir, on the grounds of using a „factual choice of words“ in his journal. For this, the editor’s house and office were searched and their computers confiscated which, ten years later, have not been returned. We have actually reached the point in Western Europe, that openness, objectivity and the encouragement of discussions are considered criminal offenses!

    Western man, living in the spirit of the Enlightenment, is distinguished by composure which means nothing else but love. But I do not believe that the ones responsible for the violations of human rights – policemen, prosecutors and judges – are especially filled with hatred and lack of tranquility. My impression is that they are afraid.

    I merely view them as cool and thoughtful. After all, they are following their interests. But do these people really believe if it serves their interests to steal other people’s freedoms because of expressions of opinion? Can this serve peace? And is peace not our highest goal?


    ***


    The Jews got quite late, under the influence of their European host nations, into touch with the Enlightenment, and even today many have not escaped their mental ghetto yet. And this is why they are blind to the fact that holy relics are routinely toppled. Decreed truths and sanctuaries demand, because they are connected with oppression, to be questioned and toppled. Every oppressed person looks for the first chance to get rid of his oppressor. Because of this, we often have ugly scenes, even wars. Let us prevent these ugly scenes by letting everyone have his truth and not dictate a truth to anyone. „Factual choice of words“ and the „facilitating an open debate“ must of course not only be not penalized – they must again be our distinctive marks, no matter in which context – may it be with Jews, Eskimos or – like my friend Serge Thion would say – wearers of apple-green ties.

    It is not a matter of historical events or whether or not they took place. The point is that everyone should be able to make anything a „res publica“. This must not be a matter for the prosecutors and judges.

    I ask the revisionists that are indicted in Germany no longer to participate in arguments with judges about historical matters because we then will get used to the thought that historical matters belong in a criminal court. This thought damages our freedom immensely. May the revisionists and their lawyers use the constitutional law and its instruments in their defense and engage themselves for the validity of basic rights and then discuss any matter freely with legal protection. May the judges and the prosecutors be convinced by that and overcome their fear.

    Living With War

    I’m living with war everyday
    I’m living with war in my heart everyday
    I’m living with war right now

    And when the dawn breaks I see my fellow man
    And on the flat-screen we kill and we’re killed again
    And when the night falls, I pray for peace
    Try to remember peace

    I join the multitudes
    I raise my hand in peace
    I never bow to the laws of the thought police
    I take a holy vow
    To never kill again
    To never kill again

    I’m living with war in my heart
    I’m living with war in my heart in my mind
    I’m living with war right now

    Don’t take no tidal wave
    Don’t take no mass grave
    Don’t take no smokin’ gun
    To show how the west was won
    But when the curtain falls, I pray for peace
    Try to remember peace

    In the crowded streets
    In the big hotels
    In the mosques and the doors of the old museum
    I take a holy vow
    To never kill again
    Try to remember peace

    The rocket’s red glare
    Bombs bursting in air
    Give proof through the night,
    That our flag is still there*

    Re: Tehran Holocaust Conference

    Holocaust conference opens in Tehran

    December 11, 2006

    IRAN today opened a hotly controversial government-sponsored conference that will allow domestic and foreign "researchers" to deny the existence of the Holocaust.
    Among the participants is Fredrick Toben, a prominent Australian “revisionist” of the Holocaust, who will give a paper on “The Holocaust: A Murder Weapon”.

    Dr Toben is well known for denying the scale of the Holocaust and has spent several months in a German jail for inciting racial hatred.

    Also taking part is French professor Robert Faurisson, who denies the existence of the gas chambers and was given a three-month suspended sentence in France in October, according to the event's program.

    Foreign Minister Manouchehr Mottaki is scheduled to give an opening address to the conference, which has drawn widespread international condemnation.

    The participants will also be invited to a private meeting with President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad.

    Other prominent names on the program of scheduled speakers include David Duke, a US white supremacist and former Klu Klux Klan member who is due to give a paper entitled “Holocaust Inquiry”.

    These researchers were joined at the opening in Tehran by several other Western “revisionists” along with Iranian participants and members of extreme Jewish anti-Zionist sects who reject the existence of Israel.

    Re: Tehran Holocaust Conference

    Jewish leaders condemn 'grotesque' summit

    Pia Akerman

    December 11, 2006

    AUSTRALIA'S Jewish leadership has condemned as grotesque a meeting
    this week of more than 60 revisionist "historians" - including
    Australian Frederick Toben - at an Iranian conference questioning the
    Holocaust.
    Dr Toben, who likes to argue that Auschwitz had no gas chambers, has
    brought his own model of the death camp to the conference, which he
    seems to think proves there would have been no room for the Jews - at
    least 1.1million - whose deaths were documented in painful detail in
    Nazi records.

    The two-day conference, Review of the Holocaust: Global Vision,
    opening tonight in Tehran, has drawn anger in Britain and the US.
    Asked why the West was so outraged, Dr Toben said: "The Holocaust
    equals a lie. Therefore Israel is built on a lie."

    He will be joined by another Australian, socialite Michele Renouf,
    who supported historian David Irving at his trials for denying the
    Holocaust. Dr Irving, who otherwise would have topped the guest list,
    is serving three years' jail in Austria.

    Dr Toben hopes to met Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, for whom
    denying the Holocaust is a favourite hobby, comparing the former
    traffic light specialist in diplomatic stature to the Queen.

    "I would be disappointed if I was not to meet him, although I can't
    tell you any more than that," Dr Toben told Britain's Sunday
    Telegraph newspaper.

    "It's like meeting the Queen of England, I wouldn't comment on it
    beforehand."

    The chief executive officer of the NSW Jewish Board of Deputies, Vic
    Alhadeff, called the conference a "farcical" attempt to undermine
    Israel, motivated by race hate of the Jewish people.

    "The motive of any Holocaust denier is anti-Semitism pure and
    simple," said Mr Alhadeff, whose grandparents were killed at
    Auschwitz.

    "The mountain of evidence is overwhelming and has been tested in
    courts around the world over and over, and by no lesser country than
    Germany itself, which was the architect of the Holocaust. It's simply
    grotesque when this conference denies the greatest disaster ever to
    have befallen the Jewish people."

    Mr Ahmadinejad claims the Holocaust is a myth used to justify the
    occupation of Palestine, calls for Israel to be wiped out and
    suggests its citizens could be resettled in Alaska.

    The seminars could not have been better designed to cause maximum
    pain to Holocaust survivors and their descendants.

    "Gas Chambers: Denial or Confirmation" , is the title of one. Others
    are headed "Freedom of Speech and the Stance of Holocaust Deniers in
    the West", and "The Current Laws Against Holocaust Deniers".

    With no trace of irony, Iranian officials said the conference -
    sponsored by the Institute for Political and International Studies, a
    foreign ministry think tank - would include archives, photographs and
    demographic evidence to establish whether the number of Nazi victims
    was exaggerated.

    In 2002, a Federal Court ruling ordered Dr Toben to remove anti-
    Jewish material from his website, deciding it was likely to "offend,
    insult, humiliate and intimidate". The Executive Council of
    Australian Jewry announced last week it was launching legal action
    against Dr Toben for his failure to obey the order.

    In August, Tehran staged an international contest of cartoons on the
    Holocaust, in a typical overreaction to the publication in Danish
    papers last September of controversial caricatures of the Prophet
    Mohammed.

    As German courts state - and with impeccable legal accuracy - "the truth is no defence."

    Iran students denounce Holocaust denial

    Michael Theodoulou

    December 12, 2006

    IN a rare act of defiance, dozens of Iranian students burnt pictures
    of President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and chanted "Death to the dictator"
    as he gave a speech at a Tehran university.

    Never has the hardline leader faced such open hostility at a public
    event, which came as Iran opened a conference questioning whether
    Nazi Germany murdered six million Jews.

    One student activist said that the protest was against the "shameful"
    Holocaust conference and the "fact that many activists have not been
    allowed to attend university". The conference "has brought to our
    country Nazis and racists from around the world", he added.

    Mr Ahmadinejad responded by saying: "Everyone should know that
    Ahmadinejad is prepared to be burnt in the path of true freedom,
    independence and justice", according to an Iranian students' news
    agency. He accused the protesters of being "Americanised" .

    The protest during a speech at Amir Tabir University unrelated to the
    Holocaust meeting will be embarrassing for Mr Ahmadinejad.

    He has portrayed Iran as a champion of free speech in hosting the two-
    day Holocaust conference, which has attracted retired Adelaide high
    school teacher Frederick Toben and other revisionist historians who
    have served jail sentences in Europe, and David Duke, an American
    former Ku Klux Klan leader.

    Almost 70 researchers from France to Indonesia arrived at the plush
    conference centre in an affluent north Tehran suburb. The centre's
    walls were festooned with posters claiming to debunk "myths" of the
    Holocaust, disputing whether smoke ever rose from the chimneys at
    Auschwitz and denouncing the film Schindler's List, which tells of
    the Nazi industrialist who rescued more than 1000 Jews.

    But the conference has embarrassed many ordinary Iranians who are
    aware of the damage such events are inflicting on their country's
    image.

    Some Iranians point out that they have much less freedom to debate
    pressing issues such as Iran's nuclear program, which has brought the
    threat of international sanctions. The conference, which has provoked
    international condemnation, was inspired by Mr Ahmadinejad himself,
    who has described the Holocaust as a myth invented to justify the
    occupation of Palestinian land. He has also declared that Israel
    should be "wiped off the map".

    The conference has dismayed Iran's 25,000-strong Jewish community.
    Moris Motamed, Iran's sole Jewish MP, said that denying the Holocaust
    was "a huge insult".

    Those at the conference included American and European rabbis from
    the fringe ultraOrthodox group Neturei Karta, whose theology holds
    that there should be no Jewish state until the Messiah arrives.

    Ahron Cohen, a British rabbi, said: "We certainly say there was a
    Holocaust. But in no way can it be used as a justification for unjust
    acts against the Palestinians. " Welcoming the participants,
    Manouchehr Mottaki, the Iranian Foreign Minister, declared: "The aim
    of this conference is not to deny or confirm the Holocaust. Its main
    aim is to create an opportunity for thinkers who cannot express their
    views freely in Europe about the Holocaust."

    Georges Thiel, a French writer who has been convicted in France,
    where Holocaust denial is illegal, said that the Holocaust was "an
    enormous lie": "Jewish people have been persecuted, that is true,
    they have been deported, but there was no machinery of murder in any
    camp - no gas chambers."

    Dr Toben, who has served a prison sentence in his native Germany for
    inciting racial hatred, said: "Minds are being switched off to the
    Holocaust dogma as it is being sold as a historical fact and yet we
    are not able to question it. This is mental rape."

    He brought a model of the Treblinka extermination camp which, he
    said, he would demonstrate that the gas chambers did not exist.
