SOME BACKGROUND>>6 min YouTube below. It was about a year ago that Bishop Williamson was interviewed by a Swedish reporter. The interview took place in Germany. The Swedish interviewer asked the Bishop if he believed the “official” Holocaust yarn that 6 million Jews were systematically gassed by the Nazis.
The Bishop explained that the research, of many credible investigative historians and others, suggest that 6 million were not gassed. Further, the Bishop noted, that the research of these notable investigators claim that approximately 2 to 3 hundred thousand died in the camps __not in gas chambers.
As a side bar, these same expert investigators also suggest that death in the camps was a result of disease, starvation and other reasons and causes.
Bishop Richard Williamson then asked for assurances, from the Swedish reporter, not to present the interview to the German public as it is a “crime” against “denying” the “official” Holocaust story in Germany. BTW, it is also a crime in Canada, Britain, France and a few other countries.
The Swedish reporter ignored the Bishop’s request not to present the interview to the German public and, in fact, he did so. The Bishop was arrested and is presently facing a German trial for so-called “Holocaust Denial”.
It’s astounding! One can investigate any historical event that has taken place and bring to the public’s attention the evidence and facts, of that past event, without fear of being charged with a crime. Not so with the Holocaust.
If the “official” Holocaust story is categorically true, why are there laws against presenting evidence which does NOT SQUARE with the official yarn? If the “official story” is absolutely true, what is there to fear? Surely truth will eventually trump a lie!
Here’s the 6 minute background YouTube video of that Swedish reporter’s interview with Catholic Bishop, Richard Williamson.
