Anders Mathisen: no evidence

Postby Kageki » 8 years 7 months ago (Wed Mar 23, 2011 5:08 am)

The article says he challenged readers to prove him wrong which I'm not sure if he really said that if anyone can read the original. I'm also curious to find his facebook page if anyone can find it.

“There is no evidence the gas chambers or mass graves existed," he told the newspaper, according to reports. "Even reputable Holocaust historians have admitted it cannot be established.”

Outrage over Holocaust-denying Norwegian lawmaker
By JTA
21/03/2011
Labor Party lawmaker Anders Mathisen tells newspaper the Holocaust never happened and challenges readers to prove him wrong.

Members of a Norwegian lawmaker's own party have called for his resignation after he publicly denied the Holocaust.

Labor Party lawmaker Anders Mathisen reportedly told the Finnmarken newspaper that the Holocaust never happened and challenged readers to prove him wrong.

“There is no evidence the gas chambers or mass graves existed," he told the newspaper, according to reports. "Even reputable Holocaust historians have admitted it cannot be established.”

Mathisen reportedly has spent months researching World War II concentration camps and is advocating changing history books, according to the Coordination Forum for Countering Anti-Semitism. He also published his reported his "findings" on his Facebook page.

Mathisen reportedly has accused Holocaust survivors of exaggerating their stories. He also said that the public has been brainwashed into believing in the Holocaust by films such as "Schindler's List," according to the forum.

The lawmaker has refused to resign from the party.

"Holocaust survivors are aghast at the morally repugnant comments of a Norwegian member of Parliament," Elan Steinberg, vice president of the American Gathering of Holocaust Survivors and their Descendants, said in a statement. "They are an insult to the memory of all victims of Nazi brutality, Jew and non-Jew."

Steinberg called for Mathisen's expulsion from political office and removal from the Labor Party.

"It was not until the 1990s that Norway began to confront its collaboration with the deportation of Jews and the plunder of their property during the Nazi occupation," the statement concluded. "The manner in which they deal with MP Mathisen is a test of whether those historical lessons were learned."

Always suspect of these things. Did he do it as truth or did he do it because they are trying to promote more sympathy for the Jews as they bomb the [email protected]#t out of the Palestinians?

Does he get paid for the reaction?

Of course no attempt to actually answer him, so no surprise there. Just vilification and pious shock.

Thanks for the links. The translation is not too bad and it did have more details so it was interesting. He surely did challenge people.

I don't have a facebook account so I can't see his wall, but I can't think of any particular reason of him being coerced or anything like that. If they want sympathy I would think it's much better to drudge up another survivor or make another museum or something. I wasn't aware holocaust denial even existed for a long time so I don't find news like this is helpful to the Holocaust story. One of my first reaction was to wonder why someone would deny it and then try to find out why they are saying it. It makes you think and that's not good.

I like how he brings up the comparison to the gulags and what happened in Russia. That has also been one of my point of contention in the history of this era. It is entirely too unbalanced in my eyes however horrible the Holocaust may be. Russia was pretty brutal during this period and the relative lack of attention is beyond me. I read an article written by a Jewess who was pointed out to her friend that Mao killed far more people then Hitler. In fact Stalin killed more then Hitler as well and yet nothing.

Some people have argued with me why does it matter how they died? Well why is Hitler more notorious then Stalin or Mao when they killed more? I'll tell you why.

GAS CHAMBERS.

It does matter of course.

I did notice that among his "friends" on Facebook he has both Kevin MacDonald and the famous Swedish revisionist Ahmed Rami.

The 22 July explosions in central Oslo and shooting down of dozens of youngsters allegedly by a mad assassin, may have been a response to Norway’s tough anti-Israel line.
Norway's Labour party has called for a trade boycott, and for the Wall to come down. Also Norway’s Labor Party lawmaker Anders Mathisen has made his 'H-D' comment. http://www.gilad.co.uk/writings/gilad-a ... right.html

It looks like being an Israeli-Mossad operation.

Being strongly anti-israel, I don't think we can read something behind Anders Breivik. Possibly this Anders Mathisen should have declared his opinions a little more timely...
Anyway, of course we know he is right and I'm going to befriend him on FB right now :)
I am not a native english speaker, so please forgive errors and weird syntax
