"how nice for the Amis - and their real masters, the Jews. If that continues, they will be only Jews and their slaves on the earth."
I find his remarks that Eastern European Jews were "dirty" to be anti-Semitic. And I very clearly see his quoted remarks above as anti-Semitic. I believe Berg to be an anti-Semite in every sense of the wordDoes one find that in any of Berg's essays? I don't think so.
Chicken and egg, Scott. Why did Berg begin to deny the Holocaust? Most people begin to deny it because they are already anti-Semitic. Mark Weber is the example par excellence.Nevertheless, his views come from experience--and his ideas have seldom been appreciated by the Jewish community. It becomes a self-fulfilling prophecy then, doesn't it?
Depends on the critic and the content of the criticism.Criticize Jews and Israel, you are an anti-Semite.
Actually, Finkelstein gets away with it because his parents are both survivors. Someone like Israel Shahak, however, clearly told huge lies about Judaism and would be the quintessential self-hating Jew, as would Israel Shamir.Sack and Finkelstein can only get away with it because they are Jews themselves. No American politician could do it; both Christians and Jews would boot them out instantly. And the rest of the world knows that the USA is what gives racist, militant Israel its backbone--one of the many reasons they hate the proverbial Ugly American.
What was the situation of Berg's firing? And why was Berg's wife translating an article at work?Hans, have you ever lost your job because of an essay that you wrote?
Well, Berg has, and so has his wife, who lost her job for translating a German wartime technical report that Berg used in one of his papers.
Berg's wife was shirking. As for Berg, I have never seen the cause and effect relationship between his writings and his firing.
For his own part, Arthur Butz was never fired for what he wrote. Nor, for that matter, were most deniers.
None of this changes that Berg is a Jew-hater. And I strongly suspect that his Jew-hating began before his Holocaust denying.
