I just got word that the B’nai Brith is spreading hateful incitement against me. They are calling for me to be banned from entering Canada this weekend, where I am planning to speak at the Quds Day rally in Toronto.
An expert on the subject, a Christian who has worked with intelligence agencies, just emailed me:
Kevin, you have finally been totally validated as a scholar and academic. Bnai Brith is a secret Masonic organization that is pure Zionist. It is also run by Luciferians and dedicated to the destruction of Christian and Islamic societies and faiths. These are the folks behind 90% of pornography according to some journalists and are basically anti-Christian and anti-society, dedicated to the destruction of everything. Their leaders’ motto is order ab chaos.”
If that’s the case, I guess it’s an honor to be so hated. Here is their screed:
Here is the key, libelous paragraph:
Since then, Barrett has repeatedly questioned the murder of six-million Jews by Nazi Germany and its allies during the Holocaust, denouncing what he calls “Holocaust Religion.” Barrett has also argued that widespread Holocaust denial in Muslim countries such as Morocco somehow confirms that the Holocaust was fabricated to promote “self-serving Zionist assertions.”
The whole paragraph is a web of lies. To begin with, I have never “questioned the murder of six-million Jews by Nazi Germany and its allies during the Holocaust.” Though I have pointed out that many scholars, including the father of Jewish Holocaust Studies, Raul Hilberg, argue that fewer than six million Jews died (Hilberg says it was five million) I have never voiced an opinion about the correct number, because I simply do not know.
My denunciation of the Holocaust Religion has nothing to do with how many Jews died during World War II. Even if I learn that seven million died, I will continue to denounce this idolatrous cult that serves to excuse the Allied war crimes during and after World War II (which killed far more than six million innocents) and legitimizes the slaughter of 55 million innocents by US CIA and military interventions since World War II, by brainwashing Americans and Westerners to see themselves as “the good guys” and World War II as “the good war.” The Holocaust Religion also serves to legitimize the ongoing Zionist genocide of Palestine, paid for by swindled US tax dollars. The evil Holocaust cult, endlessly promoted by Hollywood and the rest of the media, needs to be put to bed. It has killed more than six million by orders of magnitude, and threatens billions of lives and the future of civilization.
Additionally, I never argued that anyone’s personal views about the Holocaust, in Morocco or anywhere else, have anything to do with the truth of the matter. I have merely argued against imprisoning people (or destroying their reputations and careers) if they find the revisionist scholarship more convincing than the orthodox scholarship. And I have noted that almost all Muslim intellectuals in Muslim countries tend to find the revisionist arguments of people like Robert Faurisson more convincing than the stuff peddled in Jewish Studies and Holocaust Studies departments of Western universities. Obviously we need to have a fair-minded conversation with these Muslim intellectuals, rather than attempting to silence them.
I have never argued that “the Holocaust was fabricated to promote ‘self-serving Zionist assertions.’” I have no doubt that a great many Jews suffered enormously under the vile racism of the Nazi regime, and that a large number of Jews perished in the concentration camps. At the same time, it is not clear to me why anyone would find the two leading anti-revisionist books – Shermer and Grobman’s Denying History and Lipstadt’s Denying the Holocaust – more convincing than Thomas Dalton’s Debating the Holocaust: A New Look at Both Sides. If anyone who has read these three books thinks the first two are more convincing than the third, please contact me and I will bring you on my radio show and let you explain why.
So…can anyone recommend a good pro-bono Canadian libel lawyer? (My American lawyer will be sending a “cease and desist” letter to Bnai Brith tomorrow.)
And please tell the B’nai Brith (contact info above) to stop spreading libelous lies.
