I decided to discuss two issues in one topic because they are linked. Okay...
I'm curious. Why do some people react so strongly to those that question the holocaust or those that deny it? It just seems strange to me. Why do I get the impression you cannot question this event, otherwise you will be labeled anti-semitic/racist? Many people were killed during the holocaust but Jewish lives appear to be more valuable. Some Turkish citizens deny the Armenian genocide but they are not seen as racist/anti-semitic.
I recently watched a BBC Conspiracy Files documentary about the London Bombings.
Nicholas Kollerstrom (historian/scientist from London University) questioned the government version of the attack. The BBC claimed that since he questioned/denied the holocaust, his analysis of the attacks must have been flawed.
^ From watching this video, it appears he does not actually deny the holocaust, but takes issue with the gas chambers. So is questioning/denying the holocaust wrong/racist? o_o Is questioning the holocaust means you are denying it?
Now the BBC is considered to be impartial by many viewers from my experience. However, sometimes the BBC makes serious errors like mis-interpreting what Ahmadinejad said about wiping Israel off the map, misrepresenting the Flotilla attack, not explaining what Kuffar actually means, encouraging the lies about Wahhabism and so on. What do you think of the BBC?
