(From Fredrick Toeben) What an example of clarity of thought – revealing the moral and intellectual bankruptcy of those Germans who have adopted the perpetual guilt concerning the still unproven allegations that during WWII Germans killed Jews in homicidal gas chambers, in particular at Auschwitz. Labelling the book as “antisemitic”Â proves the point Sieferle is making, and he clearly illustrates how this statement about homicidal gassings has never been tested for truth-content, and so “Auschwitz” and “antisemitism” have gained legal protection through Germany’s blasphemy law, protecting this assertion as a dogma that cannot be questioned.
There are some parallels between Germans and Jews: The Jews never accepted Christ as the Saviour and thus never submitted to the Christians. The Germans submitted to the Auschwitz religion – accepted their guilt and are working hard to exterminate themselves as a people.
This is something the New World Order would dearly love to see happen. But Georg Kausch has shown how Germania and its 2000-year history – Die unbequeme Nation -Â https://www.amazon.de/Die-unbequeme-Nation-Georg-Kausch-ebook/dp/B00A4KKYXEÂ – has experienced such devastating defeats before and to this day still continues to reassert itself against the mental impulses emanating out of Rome and Jerusalem.

The influential German news magazine Der Spiegel has deleted from its bestseller list a book that one of its own editors had pushed up the rankings, after it was found to be â€œantisemitic and historically revisionistâ€.
JdN: The headquarters of Der Spiegel, set up during the occupation of postwar Germany, is a giant cube like the evil Borg cube on Star Trek:Â
The Borg announces as it meets each civilization in the galaxy: “Resistance is futile. You will be assimilated!”
Cubes are an important part of the alien takeover.Â
The West German eagle is depicted on all bonds as an eagle confined inside a hexagon (the inside of a Star of David)
Orthodox Jews wear a Â cube on their forehead during prayer
Islam, created by Jews to overrun and destroy white Christians, Â has its followers worship Allah in Mecca at a giant cube, the Kaaba.
The pyramid is a key part of the Star of David, which has one pointing up and the other down.
Finis Germania, or The End of Germany, collects the thoughts of the late historian Rolf Peter Sieferle on the position of Germany, including how it deals with the Holocaust.
The book is currentlyÂ at the top of Amazon.deâ€™s bestseller chartÂ and this month it entered Der Spiegelâ€™s bestseller list, which many bookshops use as a basis for promotional displays, in sixth place.
Finis Germania is missing from the list in this weekâ€™s issue of the magazine. Many bookshops have followed suit and are not displaying the title.
Susanne Beyer, Der Spiegelâ€™s deputy editor, said Finis Germania had been omitted because the magazine considered the book â€“ posthumously published by a small house, Antaios, known for its far-right leanings â€“ to be â€œrightwing extremist, antisemitic and historically revisionistâ€.
Since Der Spiegel understood itself as â€œa medium of enlightenment even on historical subjectsâ€, Beyer continued, the magazine had decided not to help advance the sales of such a book.
Beyer admitted that, in June, Finis Germania had made it on to a prestigious list of nonfiction books of the month, after her colleague Johannes Saltzwedel recommended the title.
Saltzwedel, one of the jury members for the non-sales-based recommendations list published by the broadcaster NDR and the SÃ¼ddeutsche Zeitung newspaper, had used all of his available 20 votes to nominate Sieferleâ€™s collection of short essays. Usually, jury members divide their votes among several books.

Saltzwedel, who has since resigned from the jury, said he had â€œconsciously tried to bring a very provocative book of historical and contemporary interpretation into the debateâ€.
Jo Glanville, director of the freedom of speech group English PEN, criticised Der Spiegelâ€™s decision. â€œThis is an embarrassing move for Der Spiegel. The publication of the ranking of bestselling titles is surely a statement of fact,â€ she said. â€œThis omission risks undermining the magazineâ€™s authority and reputation. Censorship can never be a successful tool for tackling the far right.â€
Der Spiegelâ€™s editor, Klaus BrinkbÃ¤umer, said: â€œOur decision was welcomed by a lot of readers and criticised by some (and criticised by a few other media and digital newsletters).
â€œI understand the criticism because a bestseller listâ€™s goal has to be to be objective and data-based, of course. In this very singular case, and with the caseâ€™s history, the Spiegel ranking would have been regarded as a second recommendation. It is an antisemitic book, so we felt a responsibility.â€
Critics have likened Finis Germania to the writings of deeply reactionary German â€œcultural declinistsâ€ of the early 20th century, such as Oswald Spengler or Ernst JÃ¼nger.Â
Others, including the philosopher RÃ¼diger Safranski, have defended Sieferleâ€™s book as a work in the â€œnight thoughtsâ€ genre pursued by poets such as Edward Young or Heinrich Heine, describing it as â€œvery pessimistic, very melancholy, but also brilliantly phrasedâ€.
Sieferle, who published historical works with many of Germanyâ€™s most respected publishing houses and advised the government on environmental policy, took his own life in September 2016. Finis Germania paints a doom-laden picture of his homelandâ€™s future.
The author bracketsÂ GermanyÂ in a group of â€œtragic peoplesâ€ that also includes â€œthe Russiansâ€ and â€œthe Jewsâ€ â€“ ethnic groups that, as he writes, â€œare more sharply marked by the paradoxes of historical processesâ€ than the â€œAnglo-Saxonsâ€, who are resistant to history â€œlike a well-greased boot to waterâ€.
In the first half of the 104-page booklet, Sieferle rejects theÂ Sonderweg theory of German historyÂ â€“ which argues that Germany found a path from aristocracy to democracy like any other in world history â€“ as â€œentente propagandaâ€.
In the second half, Finis Germania takes a more cynical turn. Sieferle in effect accuses the Jewish people of offloading their own historical guilt on to the German people after the Holocaust. He writes: â€œThe Jewsâ€™ guilt for the crucifixion of the messiah was never recognised by them. The Germans, who recognise their merciless guilt, have to disappear from the surface of real history.â€
Sieferle goes on to describe Auschwitz as â€œthe last myth in a thoroughly rationalised worldâ€. This is a highly controversial passage in a country in which Holocaust denial remains punishable by law, even if the book then goes on to define a myth as â€œa truth beyond discussionâ€ rather than an untruth.
The historian Gustav Seibt, a book critic for SÃ¼ddeutsche Zeitung, told German radio: â€œI can find little else [in the book] other than the age-old antisemitic topos of Jewish vengefulness and mercilessness. And thatâ€™s not a new idea â€“ it is not a meaningful provocation, but a denigration in a very old and sinister manner.â€
On its website, Antaios said the scandal surrounding the book â€œhas shown that none of the claqueurs has ever read the book at allâ€.
