PSC Branches Linking to Holocaust Denying Website

The Palestine Think Tank website effectively closed down in February 2011. However, while the old website is not available, there is evidence regarding its anti-Semitism.

A video by Anthony Lawson was posted by the Palestine Think Tank in March 2010. In this video, Lawson says:
All over the world Zionists build museums and memorials to their Holocaust and strive to put people in gaol for what is more properly described as historical research but which they call Holocaust denial or revisionism; an attempt to prohibit enquiry into even the more questionable aspects of the alleged events which took place in forced labour camps during the Nazi era.
While he is narrating these lines, the video shows photos of well-known Holocaust deniers Ernst Zundel, Germar Rudolf, Robert Faurisson, David Irving, Sylvia Stolz and Gerald Toben.

The journal of the Anti-Racist Action, Turning The Tide, published the following in its October/December 2010 issue [pdf]:
In TTT Vol. 23 #2, April-June 2010 we printed “International Campaign in Support of Palestinian Political Prisoners” by Yousef Abudayyeh. This article was originally published on the Palestine Think Tank website where Abudayyeh is a regular contributor. That site has published a direct attack against Rose City Antifa and the Anti-Racist Action Network written by the webmaster for Eugene, Oregon’s Pacifica Forum, another pro-Nazi, anti-Semitic project. One of the Think Tank’s founders, “ex-Jew” Gilad Atzmon, has circulated pro-Zündel material. He has written that “throughout the centuries, Jewish bankers bought for themselves some real reputations of backers and financers of wars and even one communist revolution.” (Atzmon’s article was pulled from Palestine Think Tank but remains on his personal site.) A particularly disturbing aspect of Palestine Think Tank is its promotion of “Israeli organ harvesting” allegations, a modern-day variant of the earlier Blood Libel that alleged that Jewish people killed Christian and Muslim children to use their blood in religious rituals. Yousef Abudayyeh, whose article appeared in TTT, signed on to Palestine Think Tank’s promotion of the “organ harvesting” libel.

Despite this (at least) the Bradford and Waltham Forest branches of the PSC linked to it. So do the Halifax Friends of Palestine and the Liverpool Friends of Palestine, both of which are affiliated with the PSC.

The link now redirects to the Sabbah Report. Some of their stuff is posted below.

IMPORTANT: The following is how this post used to read before I found out that the Sabbah Report is not the same website as the Palestine Think Tank.

The website redirects to the Sabbah Report. A post on it from May 2008 announces the launch of so it's not clear whether the two were originally separate or not.

In any case, the website hosts holocaust denial material. Numerous videos from Anthony Lawson are embedded on the site including one entitled "Holocaust, Hate Speech & Were the Germans so Stupid?" Whoever embedded it added in the headline "Must Watch". Early on, the video states:
"Having been tortured, Rudolf Höss, who was the commander of Auschwitz from 1940 to 1943, almost certainly lied to save the lives of his wife and children. Even if torture and duress cannot not be proven, the overwhelming reason for recognizing the utter falsity of the Höss confession is that the gassing method he described was not scientifically plausible."
The page includes links to Ernst Zundel's website, the Institute for Historical Review and, amusingly, a website among other similar sites.

Another article, written by Gordon Duff says:
"Israel pushes the focus of holocaust denial into worship of Hitler, not accurate documentation of factual history so that innocent researchers like Ernst Zundel are imprisoned."
There are a number of other articles of concern as well.

Despite all this (at least) the Bradford and Waltham Forest branches of the PSC link to it. So do the Halifax Friends of Palestine and the Liverpool Friends of Palestine, both of which are affiliated with the PSC.
