From Harry’s Place:

Here he is, standing in for George Galloway.

Press TV publishes, approvingly, Holocaust denial material. Recently, it published an essay by the disgraced Holocaust Denier and neo-Nazi, Nicolas Kollerstrom, that concludes “that the alleged massacre of Jewish people by gassing during World War II was scientifically impossible”. PressTV’s introductory comment is as follows:

The distinguished academic was dismissed on April 22, 2008 without any explanation and a Holocaust conference held on 16-18 May in Berlin refused his article and warned that he would be arrested if he attended the conference and presented his essay.

The West punishes people for their scientific research on Holocaust but the same western countries allow insults to prophets and religious beliefs…

More recently, it published this:

Press TV has excelled itself by running a story that no reputable news outlet had reported: a supposed CIA study predicting the collapse of Israel within 20 years. The only authority cited for this study was “international lawyer Franklin Lamb”. Lamb is a political activist described by Hizbollah’s TV station in Lebanon as “persistent in his support for the just cause of the Lebanese people’s resistance”.

    Well, at least I don’t live in _his_ constituency.

    Here is another recently known personality who found solace in the arms of Press TV:

    “Former US diplomat Charles W. Freeman says he doubts whether the current Israeli policies can guarantee the regime’s survival in the Middle East.

    “I don’t see how Israel can continue to survive in the long term as a state in the Middle East if it is not prepared to deal with respect and consideration with its Arab neighbors specially the Palestinians,” Freeman, a former US ambassador to Saudi Arabia, said in an exclusive interview with Press TV.

    In mid March, Freeman turned down Director of National Intelligence (NIC) Dennis C. Blair’s offer to be the chairman of the body.

    His abrupt withdrawal came after Freeman, who described “Israeli violence against Palestinians” as a key barrier to Mideast peace, drew fire from the Israeli lobby.

    “The tactics of the Israel Lobby plumb the depths of dishonor and indecency and include character assassination, selective misquotation, the willful distortion of the record, the fabrication of falsehoods, and an utter disregard for the truth,” he wrote in a statement after his withdrawal.”

    “His abrupt withdrawal came after Freeman, who advocated and endoresed the use of the US military against peaceful protesters, drew fire from the Israeli lobby.”

  4. Bill, vacationing on BizzaroWorld Says:

    That’s strange, Noga… My loading of that page says something very much different.

    “His abrupt withdrawal came after Freeman, who advocated and endorsed the use of the US military against peaceful protesters, drew fire from civil liberties and pro-free speech organizations.”

    In his notorious memo, written in May 2006, Freeman showed not only his support for the Chinese Politburo and MacArthur’s suppression of the Tiananmen and Bonus Army protests, but also supported the principle of using the military to suppress any other potentially embarrassing protests such as the 1963 civil rights march on Washington that featured Martin Luther King’s famous “I Have a Dream” Speech.

    From the Freeman memo (emphasis ours): “For myself, I side on this — if not on numerous other issues — with Gen. Douglas MacArthur. I do not believe it is acceptable for any country to allow the heart of its national capital to be occupied by dissidents intent on disrupting the normal functions of government, however appealing to foreigners their propaganda may be. Such folk, whether they represent a veterans’ “Bonus Army” or a “student uprising” on behalf of “the goddess of democracy” should expect to be displaced with despatch from the ground they occupy. I cannot conceive of any American government behaving with the ill-conceived restraint that the Zhao Ziyang administration did in China, allowing students to occupy zones that are the equivalent of the Washington National Mall and Times Square, combined. while shutting down much of the Chinese government’s normal operations. I thus share the hope of the majority in China that no Chinese government will repeat the mistakes of Zhao Ziyang’s dilatory tactics of appeasement in dealing with domestic protesters in China.”

    Having a wonderful time. Wish you all were here.
