It is time to let Tony Blair know that the only reason we don't vote against his smarmy crew is because we think the other lot is worse. VOTE NO

The Holocaust Industry: Reflections on the Exploitation of Jewish Suffering

25-05-2002 10:49

The Holocaust Industry: Reflections on the Exploitation of Jewish Suffering
No one, Finkelstein included, denies a holocaust against Jews. It is important to remember that many others died in the camps, such as Gypsies, Slavs and others. The death of Jews in no way elevates their suffering over any other people. Finkelstein's concern seems to be that these blackmail schemes will ultimately cheapen the holocaust and open the way for the deniers. Anyway you cut it, the tactics used by the holocaust industry are shameful and should be condemned as such.
