They’ve done it again.
The mainstream US media has once again mistranslated an Iranian president’s words.
Last time, they were lying to make the former President of Iran sound anti-West and anti-Israel. Now they are lying to make the new President of Iran sound pro-West and pro-Israel.
I suppose that is an improvement. Lying for peace is at least marginally better than lying for war.
But for those who care about truth, the Western mainstream media’s non-stop lies are nothing short of an ongoing holocaust.
Let’s take a closer look at the latest example of Western media duplicity.
CNN mistranslated President Rouhani’s recent interview to make it sound like Rouhani “condemned the Holocaust.”
In fact, both former President Ahmadinejad and current President Rouhani share a common outlook on Israel and the Nazi holocaust – an outlook that is also shared by the vast majority of the people of the Middle East, perhaps even the whole non-European world.
First and most importantly, they agree that whatever the Germans did to the Jews during World War II does not excuse the Zionist theft of even one acre of Palestinian land – much less the ethnic cleansing of Palestine and the creation and maintenance of an apartheid “Jewish state.”
Second, they believe that the use of the Nazi holocaust story to create a new holocaust in Palestine is an ongoing crime against humanity.
Third, they believe that revisionist historians who argue that certain aspects of the Nazi crimes against Jews have been exaggerated deserve a fair hearing – and that the West’s persecution of these historians, by imprisoning them and/or destroying their reputations and livelihoods, makes a mockery of Western pretensions to support human rights, free speech, and free inquiry.
But the Western media is dominated by Zionists, as former New York Times journalist Phillip Weiss so beautifully explained in his essay: “Do Jews Dominate in American Media? And So What If We Do?” And to most of the pro-Zionist ethnic Jews who dominate the Western media, it is an article of religious faith that the sacred Holocaust somehow justifies the establishment of the Jewish state of Israel. These people are actually devotees of a new religious cult that has been termed “Holocaustianity.”
Israeli professor Yeshayahu Leibowitz first developed the idea that the Holocaust is a new religion. His analysis has been taken up by Israeli-born British philosopher Gilad Atzmon.
The Western media elite therefore reacts to all discussion of “the Holocaust” in the same way that a medieval inquisitor might react to discussion of “the Trinity.” The whole discussion gets reduced to: “Are you a believer or a heretic?”
The mainstream media lied by condemning former President Ahmadinejad as a Holocaust-denying heretic. Now it is lying again by falsely claiming that current President Rouhani is a Holocaust-worshipping true believer like themselves.
The truth is that both presidents view World War II as history, not sacred mythology. And neither accepts the inevitability of an apartheid “Jewish state” in Palestine.
The truth is that outside of Europe and the US, hardly anyone “believes in” the Holocaust the way Americans and Europeans do. For those not under the influence of the Holocaustianity-dominated Western mainstream media and academia, the Germans’ World War II-era crimes against Jews, Gypsies, Slavs, dissidents, and others are no more sacred than dozens or even hundreds of other examples of man’s inhumanity to man.
The American slave-trade holocaust, according to various estimates, killed tens of millions, as did the Native American holocaust. Even if the sacred “six million” number of Jews killed by the Nazis is correct, both the Native American holocaust and the African slave trade holocaust were vastly larger in scope. Yet in the US, where these holocausts of tens of millions happened, “Holocaust museums” serve as sacred temples that enshrine the holy story of “six million Jews” while downplaying the vastly larger holocausts perpetrated by the ancestors of the museum visitors themselves.
