Anti-Semitic Pastor Steve Anderson Promotes Holocaust Denial

Steve Ander­son, the anti-Semitic pas­tor of the Faith­ful Word Bap­tist Church in Tempe, Ari­zona, denies the Holo­caust in a video he posted to YouTube last week, claim­ing that the mil­lions of Jews who were gassed and burned in ovens sim­ply died of hunger and dis­ease due to forced labor and war.

In addi­tion to argu­ing that it would be impos­si­ble for the Nazis to have cre­mated a mil­lion Jews at Auschwitz, Ander­son claims that the slave labor­ers there got com­pen­sated for their work and could buy items at a com­mis­sary. He fur­ther asserts that Jews were able to play on a soc­cer team and act in musi­cals and plays at Auschwitz.

Ander­son also pro­motes other anti-Semitic claims. He asserts that Hitler and Zion­ists had the same goal of get­ting Jews to leave Ger­many and then accuses the Zion­ists of work­ing with the Nazis so that Jews would go to Pales­tine. He alleges that the Jews lied about the Holo­caust so that the state of Israel could be cre­ated and asserts that Jews stole the land from Arabs and then put them in “a giant con­cen­tra­tion camp known as Gaza.”

This video is also a pro­mo­tion piece for Anderson’s anti-Semitic film “March­ing to Zion.” The film, released in March 2015, refers to Judaism as the “syn­a­gogue of Satan” and claims that Jews are fol­low­ers of the Antichrist. He also asserts that Jews who deny that Jesus is the Mes­siah would lie about the Holo­caust. He argues, “Why would it sur­prise you that the peo­ple who deny the Christ, who deny that Jesus is the mes­siah, would lie to you about some­thing else?”

Ander­son warns that the “real Holo­caust” for the Jews will occur if they don’t accept Jesus as the Mes­siah. He says, “The real burnt offer­ing is going to be when all of these Jews that don’t believe in Jesus Christ go to hell for eter­nity. That’s the oven that they ought to be wor­ried about.”

At the end of the video, Ander­son rec­om­mends that his view­ers read a Holo­caust denial book writ­ten by Vic­tor Thorn, a writer for Amer­i­can Free Press, an anti-Semitic conspiracy-oriented news­pa­per. With this Holo­caust denial video, Ander­son demon­strates that he is increas­ingly embrac­ing anti-Semitic ideologies.

Eric Hunt Unveils New Film, Plans For Virtual Holocaust Denial Museum

Eric Hunt, a Holo­caust denier known for attack­ing Nobel Peace Prize win­ner Elie Wiesel, released a new film on Decem­ber 6 titled The Maj­danek Gas Cham­ber Myth.

Hunt’s new film, avail­able on YouTube, uses clips of Holo­caust sur­vivors’ tes­ti­monies from the USC Shoah Foun­da­tion Insti­tute for Visual His­tory and Edu­ca­tion (estab­lished by Steven Spiel­berg in 1994) to claim that “all the gas cham­bers in the Maj­danek con­cen­tra­tion camp were designed and built exclu­sively for san­i­tary pur­poses as dis­in­fes­ta­tion facil­i­ties.” Hunt por­trays the Holo­caust as a whole as “a delib­er­ate psy­cho­log­i­cal war­fare cam­paign to con the world.”

Hunt sim­i­larly used clips from sur­vivors in his pre­vi­ous films, includ­ing The Tre­blinka Archae­ol­ogy Hoax released in May and The Jew­ish Gas Cham­ber Hoax released in March, both of which cre­ated buzz within the Holo­caust denial movement.

Pre­view of Hunt’s “Holo­caust hoax” vir­tual museum

In addi­tion to cre­at­ing these films, Hunt also started a new web­site called the “Holo­caust Hoax Museum,” where he is work­ing to cre­ate a vir­tual museum. When the site is com­pleted, vis­i­tors will be able to tour the vir­tual space and “learn about how the geno­ci­dal ‘gas cham­bers dis­guised as show­ers’ myth pro­motes war.” Hunt is still solic­it­ing dona­tions to com­plete the project.

In The Maj­danek Gas Cham­ber Myth, Hunt claims that “the gas cham­ber hoax has become a self-serving Jew­ish suprema­cist reli­gious myth, which has no place in mod­ern soci­ety.” He con­tin­ues, “Holo­caust hoax­ers are hold­ing onto this libelous charge for dear life” because with­out Maj­danek, sup­pos­edly, “the Holo­caust house of cards collapses.”

The film paints the Holo­caust as part of a larger Jew­ish con­spir­acy to cre­ate infight­ing among Euro­peans, stat­ing, “The gas cham­ber myth pushes Euro­peans apart. Jewish-owned media con­glom­er­ates inun­date the gullible pub­lic with Holo­caust gas cham­bers dis­guised as shower rooms pro­pa­ganda, guilt­ing Euro­peans to hate their peo­ple based on bogus atroc­ity lies.”

The film also claims that Jews use this “hoax” to jus­tify Israeli mil­i­tary poli­cies. Hunt says, “Israeli mil­i­tary brought to tour the fraud­u­lent gas cham­bers at Maj­danek are cur­rently com­mit­ting a very real geno­cide against inno­cent peo­ple in Pales­tine. Per­haps these Jews believe mur­der­ing Pales­tin­ian babies is jus­ti­fied because they were taught about exter­mi­na­tion gas cham­bers dis­guised as shower rooms at Maj­danek, but there’s no March of the Liv­ing for these dead Palestinians.”

Details Emerge On Anti-Semitic Gathering In Tehran

As Iran’s 2nd New Hori­zon Con­fer­ence wraps up in Tehran, new infor­ma­tion is emerg­ing about con­fer­ence atten­dees, who included U.S. and inter­na­tional anti-Semites, Holo­caust deniers and anti-war activists.

In his open­ing speech, Nader Tale­bzadeh, the direc­tor of the New Hori­zon Con­fer­ence, explained the goal of the con­fer­ence as, “dis­trib­ut­ing the arti­cles and thoughts of top intel­lec­tu­als and philoso­phers world­wide among Iran­ian uni­ver­si­ties and artists,” and that, “The emer­gence of ide­ol­ogy of crit­i­ciz­ing the dom­i­nance of the Zion­ist lobby over the USA and EU, which is going to make some changes in the West, has made it an essen­tial and attrac­tive sub­ject to learn.” Tale­bzadeh added in an inter­view on the side­lines of the con­fer­ence to a Press TV cor­re­spon­dent that, “These are the peo­ple [the atten­dees] that are cen­sored in the West” for their views, which include pro­mot­ing anti-Semitic con­spir­acy the­o­ries and Holo­caust denial.

Press TV also con­ducted an inter­view with Wayne Mad­sen, a U.S. anti-Semitic con­spir­acy the­o­rist, who claimed that the U.S. gov­ern­ment and Con­gress are under Zion­ist con­trol, “The Israeli agenda, which the Chris­t­ian and Jew­ish Zion­ists adopt one hun­dred per­cent, is what is sold to mem­bers of Con­gress, and that devel­ops into leg­is­la­tion, res­o­lu­tions; no one votes against any­thing [the Zion­ists] put up as far as a resolution.”

Among the speak­ers on the first day of the con­fer­ence was anti-Israel jour­nal­ist Garth Porter. In his speech to the atten­dees, Porter lev­eled accu­sa­tions against Israel, the Mossad and CIA for man­u­fac­tur­ing the Iran­ian nuclear cri­sis. Brazil­ian jour­nal­ist Pepe Esco­bar echoed Porter’s mes­sage and pre­dicted that Iran will become more active in world affairs as its stature and influ­ence in the region increases.

On the sec­ond day of the con­fer­ence, Art Olivier, a U.S. 9/11 con­spir­acy the­o­rist and film­maker, pro­moted his upcom­ing film about the life of pro-Palestinian activist Rachel Cor­rie. The film, Olivier said, will allow young Amer­i­cans “to see the real­ity of Rachel’s life which hap­pened 11 years ago and are going to real­ize the atroc­ity of Zion­ist actions against Pales­tini­ans and the peo­ple of Gaza.” Olivier also pro­moted the anti-Semitic canard that the U.S. film indus­try and Hol­ly­wood in par­tic­u­lar are under the dom­i­na­tion of Zionists.

CODEPINK co-founder Medea Ben­jamin inter­viewed on Iran­ian state media

Other U.S. par­tic­i­pants also gave brief inter­views to Farsi-language media dur­ing panel breaks, includ­ing CODEPINK co-founder Medea Ben­jamin, who told IRIB Chan­nel 1 that some of the top­ics at the con­fer­ence addressed U.S. fund­ing for war at expense of pro­vid­ing ade­quate health­care for Amer­i­can cit­i­zens, and that, “These con­fer­ences should lift the pres­sure off of the Pales­tin­ian peo­ple.” Also present at the con­fer­ence was Rev­erend Stephen Sizer, a vicar in the Church of Eng­land who, accord­ing to the UK-based Com­mu­nity Secu­rity Trust (CST), has been accused of pro­mot­ing anti-Semitic links on his website.

Some of the notable panel dis­cus­sions held dur­ing the three-day con­fer­ence included “Zion­ist fin­ger­prints on the 9/11 cover-up;” “The Gaza war & BDS Move­ment against the Zion­ist regime,” which Medea Ben­jamin was part of; “US-Israeli dual cit­i­zens work­ing in the inter­est of Israel: the case for treach­ery;” and “The ‘Islamic’ State meme, its pre­cur­sors, & the US-Israel-Saudi triangle.”
