Gas chambers or gas stations?

The best way to alleviate the current oil crisis would be to reach an understanding with Iran, which possesses enormous and as yet untapped reserves of oil and gas. And the surest way to worsen this crisis would be to mount a military attack on that country, which would then not fail to block the strait of Hormuz and so prevent any oil tanker from passing through the region.

But America and its friends have decided to boycott President Ahmadinejad’s Iran. Consequently, we all have to pay a high price for petrol, which the Americans, of course, call gasoline and “gas”.

In the eyes of American leaders and their friends, the major crime of the Iranian President, described as a new Hitler, is his saying and repeating that “the Holocaust” of the Jews is a “myth.”

Ahmadinejad recently aggravated this crime of his at a press conference he held in Rome on June 3, 2008. There, in an allusion to revisionist researchers, he voiced his wish that European intellectuals were able, without risking prison, freely to open what he so rightly called “the black box of the Holocaust”. In doing so, the Iranian President has decidedly asserted himself, from the point of view of America and its friends, as a dangerous revisionist; in that capacity, he imperils, more than has ever been done before, the religion, industry and business of “the Holocaust”, that “Holocaust” which is also the number 1 political weapon of the State of Israel, so dear to the hearts of Western leaders.

It will remain for European citizens to choose between the petrol pump (something concrete) and the gas chamber (which is hot air and brainwash). For his part, Ahmadinejad is ready to sell us oil and gas; he even proposes to Europeans that transactions should be made in euros and no longer in dollars. As for America, it is adamant that holocaustic hot air must go on being legal tender throughout the world. It has extradited to Germany the revisionists Ernst Zündel and Germar Rudolf, who are currently languishing in a Mannheim “Guantánamo”. European leaders, at their end, call all at once for a general mobilisation against both Iran and revisionism, particularly on the Internet: “Holocaust first!”. The new crusaders want to make a new universal religion of “the Holocaust”. Their emblem is no longer a cross with a naked victim on it but a mysterious slaughterhouse with a crowd of naked victims inside.

American citizens, themselves as well, are going to have to choose: “Gas Chambers or Gas Stations? Make up your mind!”

Historical revisionism is essentially an intellectual adventure. But it so happens that, with these unexpected geostrategic effects, it is in the process of taking on political proportions, even at an international level.

For more on the subject, see R. Faurisson: “Geostrategic effects of Revisionism: the Iranian lesson” (June 5, 2008).

In Le Monde (Paris) of July 3, journalist Corine Lesnes wrote a “Letter from the United States” where she stated: “For two thirds of Americans, the price of fuel has become the number one cause of concern, ahead of Iraq or the health system. From top to bottom of the social scale, all motorists are affected. No television news programme is without its report from a petrol station” (p. 30). She mentioned surprising changes that had already come about in American life owing to the fuel crisis. According to her, America consumes a quarter of world oil production.
