The London Free Press (July 21, 2016) reports: “Condemnation is raining down on an Arabic magazine in London after it published a column questioning the Holocaust, the Nazi murder of six million Jews during the Second World War. But while the London police hate crime unit is investigating, and a national Jewish group urged Ontario Premier Kathleen Wynne’s government — an advertiser in the publication — to distance itself from the monthly Al Saraha, its publisher says he was unaware of the facts and apologizes to Jewish people.
‘I didn’t mean to reject something that happened historically,’ Abdul Haidi Shala, speaking in Arabic translated into English, told The London Free Press
on Thursday.’I was curious to know why Hitler killed Jews during the Holocaust, so I read through his article and I found information,’ the publisher said. …
B’nai Brith Canada, a national Jewish human rights organization, complained about the piece in the magazine’s June-July issue, with its chief executive calling the column “despicable” and “hateful.”
While some Holocaust deniers flatly reject that Adolf Hitler and his Nazi regime in Germany ran a campaign to wipe out Europe’s Jews, complete with notorious death camps that were killing factories, others quibble over the numbers killed and the history behind it.
The piece that ran in the London monthly falls into the second category, an English translation shows, describing the six million killed as ‘a number of impossible magnitude’ and blaming ‘Jewish propaganda’ that ‘managed to spread it and establish it.’
Shala, the magazine’s owner and general manager, said he didn’t know that the facts in the piece, which he said was written by an Egyptian journalist for another publication, were incorrect.
London police confirmed hate crime investigators are reviewing the piece, whose disputed edition carried a prominent Ramadan message by Premier Kathleen Wynne and members of her governing Liberals, and a smaller ad by hometown MPP Deb Matthews, the province’s deputy premier. … London Const. Chris Loizides confirmed police are investigating whether a Criminal Code offence occurred. …
[ Ontario Liberal cabinet member Deb] Matthews issued a statement saying the Ontario Liberals were ‘completely unaware’ of the magazine’s intent to publish the piece when they bought advertising for Ramadan greetings, and condemn ‘in the strongest possible terms’ the ‘anti-Semitic and homophobic views’ in the piece. [One wonders whether Christian publication can expect Christmas greetings from the wildly pro-homosexual, anti-Christian Ontario Liberals?]
‘I assure you that our caucus and I will no longer purchase advertising space in this publication,’ she said in the statement. …
A provincially-funded London agency that helps immigrants, the London and Middlesex Local Immigration Partnership, condemned the piece Thursday and yanked the magazine from its resource list for newcomers.
[B’nai Brith CEO Michael] Mostyn called that move and a statement by the organization’s co-chair, saying it doesn’t condone racist and homophobic views, a ‘positive step.’”
And thus works thought control in politically correct Canada.
Whatever happened to a good old letter-to-the-editor to set the magazine straight. However, the apostles of the tyrannical tribal religion of holocaust do not discuss or debate. And heresy is severely punished.
If this were a matter of historical FACT, it ought to be debatable. Indeed, the number of Jews allegedly killed in WW II has fluctuated wildly. Initially, a figure of 11-million was claimed; then, it was 7-million.By the 1970s, with the creation of the new religion of holocaust, the figure of 6-million became dogma. To question it might mean prison, job loss or fines in Germany and France — a situation suggestive that we are not dealing with history here but tribal legend. After the fall of communism, documents from Auschwitz revealed that the death toll there, formerly claimed at 4-million (about 70 per Jews) was actually about a million . Applying the same 70 per cent figure, this would reduce the Jewish death toll, from all causes, by some 2-million, but,strangely, this never reduced the 6-million figure. This is a mathematical miracle unparalleled since Jesus, we are told, multiplied five small loaves of bread and two fishes to feed a multitude of 5,000.
If this were merely Jewish tribal history, the figure wouldn’t much matter. They can tell one another whatever they like. However, as the new religion of holocaust is imposed on the West, it has implications — guilt mongering, a free pass for Israel, huge reparations payments. As such, it does become of matter of concern to know or. at least, discuss and debate whether what we’re being told is the truth.
Well, not in Canada
