Robert Faurisson on “International Holocaust Day”:
“Zionist* power stems from the West’s belief in the ‘Holocaust’ myth”
From the Tehran Times political desk
Q: As you know the UN General Assembly on Tuesday (November 1) passed a resolution designating January 27 as an international day of commemoration of the Jewish and other victims of the Holocaust. What are your thoughts on this measure at this time?
Faurisson: For many years now I have been telling my acquaintances in the Moslem world that the Jews and the Zionists want to impose the religion of the alleged “Holocaust” of the Jews on the whole world. It is normal that Jews and Zionists should seek to foist such an imposture on us, for it is the sword and the shield of the Jews in general and of the Jewish State in particular. It is also normal that the Jews and the Zionists should have got the UN to submit to their will to power and so decree that every year the six billion people who inhabit the Earth shall be reminded of the “Holocaust”. The Moslem world has been awakening from its too long torpor for only a few years. It ought to have listened to the revisionists long ago and denounced out loud the sham of an alleged German project to exterminate the Jews, the alleged Nazi gas chambers and the alleged six million Jewish victims.
Q: The Holocaust is alleged to have occurred in Europe; why then is its commemoration being set by an international body like the UN?
Faurisson: Allow me to tell you that your question tends to prove that you haven’t understood the warnings given by the revisionists. Whenever I, for my part, told Moslems: “Be revisionists! Support the revisionists! Try to understand that it’s in your interest to do so”, they would respond saying: “All that doesn’t concern us. It’s a matter between Europeans or Westerners, Jews or Christians. It happened in Europe.” For me, such an answer was discouraging but I would come charging back saying: “Open your eyes! What makes for the strength of the Jewish State is the political support, rooted in supposedly ethical grounds, that it enjoys in the entire Western world, where people feel sorry for the Jews because they believe that, during the Second World War, the Germans sought to exterminate them physically, in particular in the alleged gas chambers (not to be confused with the cremation ovens, which did actually exist and about which there was positively nothing criminal).” If the whole world – in particular, Germany and the United States – lays out so much money to the Jewish State and if the media of all the Western countries overwhelm us with propaganda about the “Holocaust”, it’s because the citizens of all those Western countries, swamped with Jewish propaganda as they are, believe the “Holocaust” lie and, as long as they believe it, will feel bound to support the Jews and to supply the Jewish State and the Jewish Army with ever more money and arms. The more those in the West believe in the “Holocaust”, the more Moslems they will kill and cause to be killed in Palestine, in Afghanistan, in Iraq or elsewhere.
Q: The resolution was first proposed by Australia, Canada, Israel, Russia and the United States, but it was also supported by former US ambassador to the United Nations John C. Danforth and Congressman Tom Lantos, a Democrat from California, who belongs to the Jewish lobby; in view of these facts, how do you assess Jewish power on the international scene with regard to the issue?
Faurisson: The Jews’ power stems directly from the Western world’s near-total belief in the phenomenal lie of the “Holocaust”. You needn’t look any further.
Q: Mr Faurisson, I know that like some other revisionists, such as Ernest Zundel, you have been attacked and beaten by Jewish militia for saying that the Holocaust is “the hoax of the twentieth century” and asking “Show me or draw me a Nazi gas chamber! Stop giving me just words”. If the Holocaust story is true, why don’t the Jews tolerate other points of view on this issue?
Faurisson: The Jews do not tolerate any questioning of the “Holocaust”. Against the revisionists they use physical violence and judicial repression because, on the level of historical and scientific argumentation, they have been defeated hands down by the revisionists. We have been able to expose their lies, one by one. Therefore Jews and Zionists seek refuge in violence and intimidation. They treat revisionists like Palestinians.
Q: What has to be done on the international scene by Islamic countries to oppose such practices?
Faurisson: My answer is simple: Islamic countries need to destroy the Jews’ and Zionists’ veritable “atomic weapon”, that is, the appalling and gigantic imposture of the “Holocaust” that up to now has been poisoning the Western world and is henceforth imposed on us by the UN in the entire world. In your public demonstrations and talks, repeat after the revisionists: “The ‘Holocaust’ is a lie”. Have the courage to proclaim this salutary truth.

* Hossein Amiri of the Mehr News Agency conducted the foregoing interview, which was published in Farsi (Persian) and English. In its headline the Tehran Times had me saying: “Zionist power stems from the West’s belief in the ‘Holocaust’ myth”. In fact, as may be seen in the text, my words were: “The Jews’ power stems directly from the Western world’s near-total belief in the phenomenal lie of the ‘Holocaust’.”
