American soldiers in World War II

American soldiers in World War II

You can read an excellent article about World War II at http://www.ihr.org/other/july09weber.html

This was written by Mark Weber, who says that he is Jewish. I have personally heard him say that he is a Jew.

Here is a short quote from the article:

One recent and particularly useful overview [of the aftermath of World War II] is a 615-page book, published in 2007, entitled After the Reich: The Brutal History of the Allied Occupation. / 3 In it, British historian Giles MacDonogh details how the ruined and prostrate German Reich (including Austria) was systematically raped and robbed, and how many Germans who survived the war were either killed in cold blood or deliberately left to die of disease, cold, malnutrition or starvation. He explains how some three million Germans died unnecessarily after the official end of hostilities — about two million civilians, mostly women, children and elderly, and about one million prisoners of war.

  1. Ah, so we’re talking about world war 1, huh? Hmmm if only such an event by the Germans existed that made the war justifiable against them. Perhaps I should look at Belgium.

    • Also millions died, it’s called swine flu, remember? 140 million people?

  2. I’m not sure why this is news.
    Weber even mentioned this during his article, that this was covered after the war by several newspaper outlets during and after the war.
    I’ve read about in Norman Davies, “Europe, a History, Savage Continent by Keith Lowe, Bloodlands by Timothy Snyder, Hitler’s Empire by Mark Mazowar and Exorcising Hitler by Friedrich Taylor.”

  3. IIRC Mark Weber’s sister married a Jew and converted. If he’d ever admitted to being Jewish himself I believe the board of directors of the group who were paying his salary back when Robert Faurisson and other revisionists called for his resignation wouldn’t have let him continue to run that organization onto the rocks. Weber announced that Holocaust revisionism had been a dead end in the struggle against Zionism and revisionists reminded him that history was the IHR’s middle name and it was why Willis Carto started the organization. David irving, Mark Weber, David Cole-Stein and Christian Lindtner have embraced a “limited Holocaust” theory that between 1.2 and 2 million Jews were mass murdered (they don’t say how) in the Reinhardt Camps in Poland. Only Cole-Stein has ever published a book on the Holocaust and that was more a reminiscence about partying with Hollywood Republicans and the heyday of his career as a Holocaust heretic on TV talk shows than anything scholarly.

  4. When did Mark Weber admit that he was Jewish? Be specific, please.

    Comment by Friedrich Paul Berg — June 13, 2016 @ 11:10 am

    • You wrote: “When did Mark Weber admit that he was Jewish?”

      He said this in a speech during a Holocaust conference, which I attended in Sacramento, CA in 2005.

      • Weber admitted to the holocaust happened…

        “No informed person disputes that Europe’s Jews did, in fact, suffer a great catastrophe during the Second World War. Millions were forced from their homes and deported to brutal internment in crowded ghettos and camps. Jewish communities across Central and Eastern Europe, large and small, were wiped out. Millions lost their lives. When the war ended in 1945, most of the Jews of Germany, Poland, the Netherlands and others countries were gone.

        Given all this, it should not be surprising that even well-founded revisionist arguments are often dismissed as heartless quibbling.”

        He also described Revisionism as the following as well.

        “The anti-Semitic enterprise of Holocaust denial is dead. Long live anti-Semitism!”

        • It’s why people like Berg hate him.

          I think Jim interviewed him.

  5. Are you joking with that picture? It’s the British in the Battle of the Somme, 1916 (WWI)

    • You wrote: “[the photo shows] the British in the Battle of the Somme, 1916”

      Are you sure? What is the source of your information?

      The first thing that I noticed about the photo is that the action was captured by a camera with a fast shutter speed and a sharp lens. I don’t think that cameras like this were available in 1916.

      The caption on the photo is this: “Members of the Black Watch, one of the famed Scottish regiments, undergo rough training in South Coast sector of England, in 1940. The men were training to be combat parachutists. (AP Photo) #”

      This photo was not taken during the fighting in any war. It would have been very unusual to have a photogrpapher taking photos like this during a battle.

      • Why did you label it as US soldiers if what is written in the back says these were Scottish soldiers? Especially in 1940?

        • You wrote: “Why did you label it as US soldiers if what is written in the back says these were Scottish soldiers?”

          The whole point, that I was trying to make in my blog post, is that what is written on the back is wrong.

          Comment by furtherglory — June 13, 2016 @ 12:23 pm

          • Why do you think it’s wrong?

            I’m not sure I follow your logic on this one. It looks like men “going over the top.”

            I guess it makes sense that the men were trainees.

      • Just do a google search on the picture. With the Chrome browser I just right-click on it and select “Search Google for image” and that opens in a new window:
        http://tinyurl.com/z7yovyh
        (I made a tinyurl out of the ridiculously long url for the image search)

        Sites like these result:

        http://www.history.com/topics/world-war-i/battle-of-the-somme

        They could all be mislabeled for all I know; but it looks like WW-I Brits to me.

        • I just clicked on that pinterest picture and it took me to:
          http://www.theatlantic.com/photo/2011/07/world-war-ii-axis-invasions-and-the-fall-of-france/100098/

          Where there’s a bigger photo of this with the caption:
          “Members of the Black Watch, one of the famed Scottish regiments, undergo rough training in South Coast sector of England, in 1940. The men were training to be combat parachutists. (AP Photo)”

          I agree with you about the quality of the photo; but the uniforms and the fact they’re in trenches makes me think of WWI.

          • The whole “going over the top” made me think the same thing.

      • Learn about something called an image search.
