Fewer and fewer people take the charge of anti-Semitism seriously these days.
Unfortunately, the term "anti-Semite" has been so utterly hijacked by these guys that it has hardly any sting anymore (even in situations where it should).
How can one attack Holocaust denial in forums and blogs and in the very next post attack Holocaust professors, memorial websites like http://www.holocaustresearchproject.org
...and specifically in the case of the holocaustcaustcontroversies hate blog team, conspire to steal someone else's website, and then when you fail to do so, go on to vandalize it to the point that the work is almost lost forever!
[See http://www.deathcamps.org/copyrights&freeuse.html for information on this]
How does one reconcile such actions and claim to be anti-Holocaust denial?
Holocaust denial is flourishing in the Arab world. It’s one of the 21st-century’s fastest-growing forms of counter knowledge now, at last, someone has grasped the nettle. As the historian Deborah Lipstadt is planning to translate parts of her website Holocaust Denial on Trial into Arabic.
But when one claims to fight Holocaust denial but employs Nazi tactics and behaves like SA thugs how can this do anything but harm to the cause of fighting anti-Semitism and Holocaust denial!
Unless of course the end goal isn't really about fighting Holocaust denial at all...
Is hate blogging of the sort portrayed on Nick Terry's Holocaustcontroversies.blogspot be the new face of anti-Semitism? Is internet thug Sergey Romanov the new Heydrich and Roberto Meuhlenkamp the bumbling Hans Frank?
Are hate blogs the new Protocols of Zion?
There are many questions to be answered and we are committed to the cause of raising awareness to this new face of anti-Semitism!
More to come...
