At least five people have been killed in Afghanistan as protests against European cartoons mocking the Prophet Muhammad swept across the country.

Two people died when protesters turned on the US airbase at Bagram - although the US has had no involvement with the images, which originated in Denmark.

Meanwhile in Somalia, a teenage boy died after protesters attacked police.

Comment: "Newspapers across Europe republished the pictures last week, saying they were defending freedom of expression."

As we have mentioned, making jokes about Muslims and their religion while they are being subjected to genocide is exactly the same as all the Jewish jokes and anti-Jewish cartoons and propaganda of WW II. If the European press is claiming "freedom of expression," then they have a problem.

For example: Ernst Zundel. He was born in 1939, in Germany, he immigrated to Canada at the age of 19, and started a career as a graphic artist. In the 1980’s, he published a book called “Did Six Million Really Die?“which asked serious questions about the prestidigitaion of facts about the Jewish version of the Holocaust.

And that reminds me: even if 6 million DID die, that was only one tenth of the total number of deaths of people in World War II. How come we don’t hear about the Russian Holocaust? The Polish genocide? The FORTY to SIXTY MILLION other people killed during that period???

What I mean here is this: there is NO escaping the horror of that time. It was horrible beyond imagining. And I don’t even want to quibble over whether it was 6 million or 4 million or 2 million Jews that died in the Global Holocaust that was WW II. What I DO find extremely offensive is that a law can be passed to make it a doctrine. That amounts to legally mandating what a person must BELIEVE.

Now, whether you are aware of it or not, there are still people that believe that the earth is Hollow and that there is a whole population of people living inside even with their own “sun.” How weird is that? There are MILLIONS of people who believe that they get abducted by aliens almost every night. (Maybe that’s not so weird, IMHO.)

So, the point is: nobody has made it a legal mandate that people must stop believing that the earth is hollow or that people must stop believing in aliens.

Okay, I acknowledge that it’s not quite the same thing. We are talking about the difference between beliefs about things that aren’t related to a horrible human tragedy and those that are about this unspeakably dark period in our history. But the essence of the issue is the same nevertheless. If somebody believes that the earth is hollow, he is allowed to say so, to publish books about it, to try to sell those books to other people, to have his ideas examined and scrutinized. People may laugh at him and call him a kook because, obviously, he isn’t going to have any serious evidence. He will be judged by the court of public opinion.

And maybe that’s the difference. Maybe that’s why they have to legally mandate belief in the Holocaust...

In 1985, Canada charged Ernst Zundel with “publishing false news”. He brought in gas chamber experts, other historians, and also cross-examined a number of Jewish survivors, who apparently fell apart under oath.

He moved from Canada to the United States, where he was arrested in 2002, deported to Canada, and finally to Germany in 2005.

Then, there is Germar Rudolf. He is a German-trained chemist, who re-examined Auschwitz, Birkenau, and other installations and buildings, testing rocks, soil, and other physical samples for traces of Zyklon B. As a scientist, he found the “gassing” claims to be scientifically untenable and, therefore, "absurd." He was sentenced by Germany to 14 months, and then fled to the US. He was arrested on November 18, 2005 in Chicago, and extradited to Germany.

So, that’s TWO, so far, in 2005.

It gets even weirder.

David Irving is a 65 year-old guy, a Brit, an author and historian, who has written 36 books, and is a recognized authority on Hitler and World War II. Although he skirted around the Holocaust and concentrated on the WW2 battles, he testified at Zundel’s trial. He was arrested in Vienna, Austria on November 14, 2005.

Thats THREE in 2005.

What is UP with that?

It gets stranger still: Siegfried Verbeke was charged with denying the holocaust. He is an historian and, publisher involved with Castle Hill Publishers who say that it is their goal to “scientifically investigate historical events, particularly those of the 20th century, without limitations imposed by dogmas or axioms.”

He was arrested in August of 2005 in Amsterdam. On October 6th, the Netherlands agreed to extradite him to Germany, where he faces 14 months in prison.

Now, either I’m losing my marbles, or something serious is up with all of this coming down in a single year.

Anyway, while I was reading up on Siegfried, I came across something that really startled me: the idea that the Diary of Anne Frank - that famous book that about every American school kid has read - is a fraud!

Yup, that's what they are saying: that it's a hoax perpetrated by her father who was a psychopathic philanderer, a collaborator with the Nazis, and also possibly an incestuous pedophile.

Now, don’t take my word for it! These people really believe this: READ IT YOURSELF! And especially check out the handwriting issues.

In any event, on closer examination, we see that the European press has really missed the boat on this one. Where were they when these legitimate researchers were arrested for expressing their views? Why do we, again and again, see a double standard biased toward Zionists?

Jyllands-Posten, the Danish newspaper that first published the cartoons of the prophet Muhammad that have caused a storm of protest throughout the Islamic world, refused to run drawings lampooning Jesus Christ, it has emerged today.

The Danish daily turned down the cartoons of Christ three years ago, on the grounds that they could be offensive to readers and were not funny.

In April 2003, Danish illustrator Christoffer Zieler submitted a series of unsolicited cartoons dealing with the resurrection of Christ to Jyllands-Posten.

COPENHAGEN - Denmark on Monday issued a list of 14 Muslim countries that they advised their citizens to avoid following violent protests against the publication of cartoons depicting the Prophet Muhammad.

The 14 countries are Afghanistan, Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iran, Jordan, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Pakistan, Sudan, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates and Qatar.

The recommendation follows attacks over the weekend on Danish diplomatic missions in Syria and Lebanon.

The Foreign Ministry has already advised Danish nationals to leave those countries immediately.

Comment: One wonders, of course, in the face of this evidence that you just never know what is going to be the straw that breaks the camel's back, what piddling tempest in a teapot issue is going to rouse the American populace against the Neocon Administration? An interesting question, we think.

From correspondents in Tehran
February 07, 2006
IRAN'S largest selling newspaper announced today it was holding a contest on cartoons of the Holocaust in response to the publishing in European papers of caricatures of the Prophet Mohammed.

"It will be an international cartoon contest about the Holocaust," said Farid Mortazavi, the graphics editor for Hamshahri newspaper - which is published by Teheran's conservative municipality.

He said the plan was to turn the tables on the assertion that newspapers can print offensive material in the name of freedom of expression.

"The Western papers printed these sacrilegious cartoons on the pretext of freedom of expression, so let's see if they mean what they say and also print these Holocaust cartoons," he said.

A team of detectives is to investigate Muslim extremists who took part in demonstrations outside the Danish embassy in London as the Government tried to use the row to re-ignite support for an offence of glorifying terrorism.

Charles Clarke, the Home Secretary, gave a strong signal to the police to proceed with the prosecution of Muslim protesters who called for people to be beheaded or massacred over the publication of offensive cartoons of the Prophet Mohamed.

Comment: Clearly, these cartoons were deliberate provocation for just such purposes...

For the first time in more than 20 years, U.S. nuclear-weapons scientists are designing a new H-bomb, the first of probably several new nuclear explosives on the drawing boards.

If they succeed, in perhaps 20 or 25 more years, the United States would have an entirely new nuclear arsenal, and a highly automated fac- tory capable of turning out more warheads as needed, as well as new kinds of warheads.

"We are on the verge of an exciting time," the nation's top nuclear weapons executive, Linton Brooks, said last week at Lawrence Livermore weapons design laboratory.

Comment: Now, that's just peachy! Truly a Science of Evil.

"What's that?"

"It's our brand new H-bomb."


"An H-bomb. You know, highest kill-ratios on the market!"

"I don't think that's a very good idea. You start using those things and other people are going to use theirs, and everybody could end up dead."

"What's wrong with you? Where have you been? You never wanted to be H-bombed? You, too, can be a Shiva, destroyer of Worlds! Amaze your friends, confound your enemies, hypnotize any woman from a distance by the power of your... H-BOMB!"

"Wow! Look at the size of his ... Bomb!"

President Bush, constrained by wars, hurricanes and exploding budget deficits, has sent Congress a 2007 spending plan that is garnering howls of pain from farmers, teachers, doctors and a wide array of other groups with special interests.

Sen. Hillary Rodham Clinton, D-N.Y., said Bush's budget was sending a clear message "that the most important thing to this administration are tax cuts being made permanent for the wealthiest of Americans."
