Holocaust revisionism has taken on many shapes and forms in the last decades. Something about the Holocaust makes people want to change history. Holocaust denial/revisionism has been a thriving industry for the pro-Palestinian crowds, who can be found everywhere.
So here is the latest incarnation of this morally-odious project which was reported by a commenter on Z-word blog.
The reviser is French-Swiss filmmaker Jean-Luc Godard who is being honoured by the Hollywood’s Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences with an honorary Oscar:
In a 2009 article in Le Monde, “Godard and the Jewish Question” by Jean-Luc Douin, Godard is quoted as making an off-camera comment during the filming of a 2006 documentary: “Palestinians’ suicide bombings in order to bring a Palestinian State into existence ultimately resemble what the Jews did by allowing themselves to be led like sheep to be slaughtered in gas chambers, sacrificing themselves to bring into existence the State of Israel.” Godard apparently believes that Jews committed mass suicide during the Holocaust in order for Israel to be created. The same article quotes him along these lines: “Basically, there were six million kamikazes” and “Hollywood was invented by Jewish gangsters.” At least Godard cannot accuse the American film industry of being ungrateful gangsters.
What can you do? How is one to begin to confront this evil? How is it possible to neutralize it?
The whole article is worth reading, a necessary lesson.
