New easy-to-read version: Dissenting opinion of Justice R.B Pal, Tokyo "war crimes" Tribunal

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2014-03-12 06:49

Carlos W. Porter has just completed the tedious task of reformating the entire Dissenting Judgement, in 11 parts, of Justice R.B. Pal from the Tokyo Tribunal of 1946-48, first published in 1999.

"Publication of Pal’s dissenting opinion at the Tribunal was prohibited during the Occupation years, and even after the allied Occupation was over and Japan had regained her independence, it failed to draw the attention of the Japanese except for a few who had special interest in the Tokyo Military Tribunal. In a word, it was almost forgotten among the Japanese.

"One thing that Pal was especially concerned about regarding the war was the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. On visiting Hiroshima in November 1952, four years after the Tokyo trial ended, he was reportedly shocked to know the meaning of the monumental inscription dedicated to the A-bomb victims:  “Sleep peacefully, for we shall never repeat the mistake." [we = the Japanese leaders -cy]

“Why should the Japanese apologize to the Japanese?” he said with resentment, “It is not the Japanese who dropped the atomic bombs.” I would like to know what he would have said or, for that matter, what judgment the Tribunal would have passed on Japan if they had known at that time about the Emperor’s order to stop a project by the Japanese military to build an atomic weapon. The Emperor reportedly said that Japan should not be the first to make and use such an inhuman device, and thereupon the Japanese Army, by instructions from General Tojo, immediately gave up its A-bomb production project even at the cost of a possible final victory, while the U. S. decided to develop such a weapon and actually dropped two of them on Japanese cities just to shorten the war." -Akira Nakamura

Freedom of Opinion Moves Forward

Spectacular precedent-setting decision in Strasbourg: Anyone who disputes the racial murders of 1915 against the Armenians in Turkey can invoke Freedom of Opinion [law], and in accordance with it [the law], not be legally subject to criminal conviction - a Swiss case with big consequences.

Karl-Otto Sattler, Strasbourg, December 21, 2013

In a democracy, the state may not declare an objective and absolute truth of historiography and then enforce it by means of criminal law: With this reasoning the Human Rights Law Court on Tuesday classified the conviction of a Turkish politician - who had denied the thesis of the genocide of Armenians in the Ottoman Empire during the First World War - as a violation of the Freedom of Opinion [Law] enshrined in the European Council's Human Rights Charter. The landmark ruling of the Strasbourg judges goes far beyond this single case - because the Armenian question is also disputed in other European countries - for example, France.

Final Interview With Erich Priebke, July 2013

Thanks to James Damon (right) for the English translation of this outstanding interview given by Erich Priebke to his Italian attorney Dr. Paolo Giachini and translated anonymously into German.

See UPDATE 10-24 from Dr. Giachini and Robert Faurisson at end of interview.

 The Interview

Question: Herr Priebke, several years ago you stated that you never deny your past. Now that you are 100 years old, do you still think that?

Answer: Yes.

Q: Would you please elucidate?

A: Long ago I made the decision to remain true to myself.

Q: So, do you still consider yourself a National Socialist?

A: Loyalty to our past determines our convictions and our character.
This is the way I view the world and my ideals. It is what was once our German Weltanschauung, the way we view the world. It is what still determines my sense of honor and my self-respect. Politics is something different. National Socialism perished with the defeat of Germany and today there is no longer any prospect of its continuation.

Horst Mahler on the German Reich

The following was excerpted from Part 9 of Horst Mahler's interview by Jew Michael Friedman for the German Vanity Fair magazine in 2007. It is translated from the German by shoabloger.

The participants: HM - Horst Mahler; MF - Michael Friedman; VF - Vanity Fair; SS - Sylvia Stolz

When did Mahler change from Red to National-Socialist?

H.M. Lenin was a great historical figure. He believed he was making a revolution, but it was something else that he has done. But that is always the lot of great figures.

M.F. But in the years when you were in the SPD, the SPD has indeed, already in the 50s and 60s, understood itself as the counter-response against Hitler. It has even been said “We Social Democrats have gone to the concentration camps because of Hitler.” What kind of consciousness did you actually have at that time? Or were you still a victim of Jewish propaganda and your guilt?

H.M. I have said it very clearly in my conversation with Baum, which was then published as a book: I believed these propaganda lies against the German Reich; Hitler was for me a poisonous thorn in the flesh of the German people, and we wanted to get rid of it.

NSU trial takes summer break with little progress so far

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2013-08-11 09:02

  Overseeing the NSU trial, presiding judge Manfred Götzl (3rd from left), is said to have control of the proceedings in spite of the chaotic presentation of evidence.

The following report is loosely taken from  http://www.dw.de/nsu-trial-adjourns-for-summer-with-many-unanswered-ques... and http://www.spiegel.de/international/germany/nsu-neo-nazi-terror-trial-ad... -carolyn yeager

The trial of four suspects, accused of aiding a "neo-Nazi" terrorist cell, has adjourned for a month-long summer break after being in session for 32 days. So far, the accused have largely refused to answer questions.

The opening of the trial, which was first announced would begin in January 2013, was delayed until May for various reasons of incompetency. In three months time (May through July), the Munich court only managed to be in session for a single month of days. That is being called satisfactory advancement by the media, who are careful not to criticize Judge Manfred Götzl or the state.

Carlos Porters new book War Crimes Trials and Other Essays refers to the International Military Tribunals put on by the Allies in the city of Nuremberg following Germany’s defeat in WWII. There were 13 “trials” but the first and most famous was of the “Major War Criminals” (so-called), prosecuted by the young American Colonel Telford Taylor (pictured right) under Chief Counsel Robert Jackson. Porter's first essay is “Anatomy of a Nuremberg Liar,” which compares Taylor’s description (in his own book) of the “defendants” testimony to what the actual court transcripts show.

Among the Third Reich personalities covered are General Erich von Manstein; Foreign Minister Joachim Ribbentrop; Rudolf Hess; Head of SS Security (SD) Ernst Kaltenbrunner; Head of Reich Labor Deployment (after 1942) Fritz Saukel and Field Marshall Erhard Milch (Luftwaffe).

More proof Austrians loved Hitler - and the AP is a Jewish plague

This rediscovered bell marks the date in April, 1938 when Hitler, as the "unifier and Führer of all Germans freed the Ostmark from the yoke of suppression of foreign elements and brought it home into the Great German Reich."

By Carolyn Yeager

The actively hateful and vengeful "Jewish community" in Vienna, Austria is at it again. And they have the Associated Press as their ally.

Not content to have removed the modest stone monument from the burial place of Alois and Clara Hitler, parents of native son and future Reich leader Adolf, a year ago, and forced the sale of the plot to new owners - they are now stirring up a stink about a bell that was designed and installed in honor of Hitler by the residents of the village Wolfpassing (approximately 20 miles west from Vienna) in 1939. The bell is part of the history of the village, and of the nation, too.

But in keeping with the spirit of Simon Wiesenthal, who lived in Austria as a Jew, the Jews now living in Vienna are calling for the bell's destruction. They cannot tolerate the sight of it, as devils cannot tolerate the sight of the cross, and they wish to deprive the whole world of whatever they don't like (think is not good for them).

Eyewitness to forced repatriation of Russian refugees by U.S. Army

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2013-07-07 12:30

R. R. Davison served as an American rifleman in World War II and later got a university education (probably on the GI Bill), eventually becoming a professor of Chemical Engineering at Texas A&M University. In 1983, he wrote the following letter to the editor at the Wall Street Journal.

[I confirmed Davison's identity by doing a search and coming up with this page http://books.google.com/books/about/Methyl_Alcohol_as_Motor_Fuel.html?id=Z1YaMwEACAAJ where I found the following information:

*A book by R.R.Davison published by Texas A&M University in 1974: Methyl Alcohol as Motor Fuel.

*Extraction Or Destruction of Chemical Pollutants from Aqueous Waste Streams, R. R. Davison, Environmental Protection Agency, 60pp, 1977.

*Economic Feasibility of the "Solaterre" System, on "Solar Energy," R.R. Davison, W.B. Harris, J.H. Martin, 58 pp, Department of Chemical Engineering, Texas A&M University.]

I Thought Americans Were Good” 9-23-83

I have a question and an appeal regarding the Sept. 6 editorial page article on the post-WWII Russian refugee tragedy. Why does not someone, using the Freedom of Information Act if necessary, write a definitive history of the U.S. participation in this atrocity?

In August of 1945, I was a 19-year old rifleman in Company G 318th Infantry stationed in Kempten, Germany. One Sunday morning we were ordered into formation and issued ammunition. The company commander explained that our government had promised to return all the Russians that had entered Germany between certain dates. The Russians were refusing to go. Some had committed suicide and others had taken refuge in an orthodox church, claiming they would die there rather than return to Russia. Our orders were to load them on trucks for deportation, even if we had to kill them. Then the CO added that Stalin had promised that they wouldn't be harmed. A low laugh rippled through the formation, and to me that laugh is more significant than the brutality that followed.

NSU Trial: Turkish "victims" are behaving and being treated like holocaust survivors

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2013-05-19 12:59

The following is an editorial commentary by Gisela Friedrichsen in Spiegel Online International dated May 13, 2013 titled "Victim's Lawyers Should Stop Fanning Outrage."

Relatives of the victims of the NSU terror cell were furious that the trial was adjourned last week so the judge could consider a defense motion of bias against him. But the victims' lawyers criticized this legitimate instrument. They are giving their clients exaggerated expectations and should know better.

A scandal! An insult! Another slap in the face of the victims! Such was the language that accompanied the decision by Munich's Higher Regional Court to cancel two sessions of the National Socialist Union (NSU) trial and not resume proceedings until this week. This came on the first day of the trial, when the defense entered two motions alleging bias: one directed at chief judge Manfred Götzl and the other against him and two fellow judges.
