The trial of Horst Mahler began in Potsdam, Germany on Wednesday October 8th, 2008. Mahler is accused of publishing documents on the Internet denying the Holocaust. Full story published by the International Herald-Tribune and Newsnet14. Discussion on Stormfront and the Vanguard News Network Forum.
Horst Mahler, a founding member of the Red Army Faction in 1970, is accused of regularly posting documents online between 2001 and 2004. Denial of the Nazi Holocaust is a crime in Germany. Mahler has been charged with incitement and faces up to five years in prison if convicted.
The Potsdam state court trial is the latest case against the 72-year-old attorney, who was sentenced to 11 months in prison in July 2007 for giving the stiff-armed Nazi salute when he reported to prison after a conviction in a separate case.
In addition to several neo-Nazi related convictions, a court in Mainz in 2003 found Mahler guilty of condoning a crime for saying the September 11th, 2001 attacks in the United States were justified and fined him several thousand euros (dollars).
In the mid-1970s, Mahler was convicted for RAF-related activities, including several bank robberies, and for helping notorious terrorist Andreas Baader, another founding member of the group, escape from jail. He was sentenced to 14 years in prison but was released in 1980 after he made several public statements condemning terrorism and Red Army Faction methods.
Mahler then joined the far-right National Democratic Party, from 2000 to 2003, and acted as its attorney. The Potsdam trial is expected to last until at least mid-November.
Of course, Germany is not satisfied with having caught Mahler in their net. They're currently angling for the United Kingdom to extradite Dr. Fredrick Toben for alleged "Holocaust denial" as well. Dr. Toben's extradition hearing is currently scheduled for October 17th.
It's open season on free speech in Europe, folks.
Commentary: Why does International Jewry promote Holocaust denial laws so vigorously? Because the financial returns from this Semitic hook sunk in the jaw of the Western nations, particularly Germany, is positively staggering. Few rackets have generated the financial bonanza reaped from the Holocaust. Back in July 2007, I revealed the sheer magnitude of Holocaust reparations forked over by Germany. It is indeed staggering:
The True Cost of Holocaust Reparations: The $88 billion figure cited earlier...is merely direct reparations payments to Jews and other victims from the German government. It does not include payment of reparations, either in coin or in kind, to Israel since the end of World War II. On page 306 of his book "Jewish Supremacism", Dr. David Duke estimates the total of all German Holocaust reparations payments to be at least $150 billion.Many of these reparations to Israel were "in kind" payments, in the form of goods or services. On the same page, Dr. Duke states that "without German reparations..., Israel would not have half of its present infrastructure. All the trains in Israel are German, the ships are German, and the same goes for electrical installations and a great deal of industry...". Later in the same paragraph, Dr. Duke also points out that "In some years the sums of money received by Israel from Germany have been as much as double or treble the contribution made by collections from international Jewry".
And this is not enough for Israel. Recently, they've begun to claim that the children of Holocaust survivors also suffered "trauma" and are entitled to "compensation". Furthermore, in the classical spirit of "kol nidre", Israel now claims what Germany previously paid is no longer enough because the number of "victims" has been miscalculated and because of inflationary pressures. But the latter was too much even for the Judeocentric German Chancellor Angela Merkel and she quashed the request.
But one can begin to understand why the Jews guard the Holocaust tale with the same ferocity as a pit bull guards a bone. They've constructed a worldwide network of "McHolocaust franchises" (Holocaust museums) to promote and reinforce Holocaust theology. They've promoted the passage of Holocaust denial laws in which people like Ernst Zuendel and Germar Rudolf have been incarcerated merely for expressing public doubt about the magnitude of the Holocaust.
What is termed "Holocaust denial" is actually Holocaust revisionism. Most revisionists do not question the occurrence itself, but merely the demographics, the methodology, and, above all, the singularity attached to it. The latter is the most troubling, because "Holocaust" has become a uniquely Jewish construct. Promoting the "singularity" of the Holocaust implies that Jewish suffering is somehow more tragic than the suffering of others. This implies that Jewish life is inherently more valuable than other human life.
And that is one of the cornerstones of Jewish supremacism.
