Was the Polish Holocaust Also a Hoax?

Hardly a week goes by without attempts by Internet die-hards to debunk the Jewish holocaust as a "holohoax."
I understand the motivations of holocaust minimizers but they discredit themselves as unfeeling ignoramuses; and advance the Zionist-NWO agenda, which is to provoke a gratuitous conflict between holocaust-minimizers in Islam and the Zionist West.
Three million non-Jewish Poles were killed by the Nazis. No one
questions this. The Jews were below Poles in the scale of "untermenschen"
(subhumans.) (Poles received about 650 calories per day in rations
compared to 450 for Jews.)
Do the die-hards expect us to believe the Nazis would exterminate Poles and somehow spare
In a speech August 22,1939 at his Obersaltzberg HQ, Hitler said his aim is to "kill without pity or mercy all men, women and children of Polish descent or language. Only in this way can we obtain the living space we need...: (Gumkowski, "Poland Under Nazi Occupation" p.59)
In "Forgotten Survivors: Polish Christians Remember the German Occupation" (2004), Richard Lukas writes:
"The Germans killed their Polish victims in a variety of ways--shooting, gassing, hanging, torture, hard labor, lethal injections, beatings and starvation. The first victims of the gas chambers at Auschwitz were Poles and Russian POWs. The Nazi determination to obliterate the Polish intelligentsia resulted in wiping out 45% of Polish physicians and dentists, 40% of professors, 57% of attorneys, 30% of technicians, and a majority of leading journalists." (5)
The Jewish holocaust took place in the context of "Generalplan Ost" ("General Plan, East") the planned genocide of over 50 million Slavs, 75 % of the population of Nazi-occupied Poland, Ukraine and Russia. The Nazis intended to "Germanize" a few of the remaining 25%, and keep the rest as agricultural serfs who wouldn't even learn to read.
The Nazis managed to kill 20 million Russians including 7 million civilians by a variety of means. Three million Russian POWs died from bullets, deliberate typhus infection and starvation.
I deplore the persecution of those who question the details of the
Jewish holocaust. Nothing casts more doubt than attempts to control
thought and speech. You won't go to jail for questioning Christ's crucifixion, a sign of the status organized Jewry aspires to.
In my view, the die-hard's real objection is to the Zionist political exploitation of the holocaust, i.e. the immunity from criticism and prestige it gives them. They would be wiser to address this issue directly rather than pretend the Jewish holocaust didn't take place.
They could neutralize its propaganda value by drawing attention to the pattern of Nazi-elite Jew collaboration (Judenrat, Jewish police, Zionist) and by talking about the Jewish role in Stalinist mass-murder. (See Below: "Stalin's Jews.") Essentially the Nazis and Communists were two branches of the same satanic cult that controls the world today. They were both conceived for the purpose of advancing the bankers' "New World Order" through war. Zionism is another branch.
The treatment of Jews in Nazi-occupied Europe depended on the changing Nazi relationship to host nations and allies. For example, the 5,000 Danish Jews were mostly unscathed because the Nazis wanted good relations with the Nordic Danes, and access to their farm produce. Unlike the Poles, the Danes were very protective of their Jews.
Nazi persecution was held in check as long as Hitler desired peace with England, or good relations with Russia. However the invasion of Russia June 22, 1941 signaled the beginning of a genocidal death-struggle. In this war zone, Slavs and Jews who were unfit for slave labor, (i.e. 70-90% of the total) were marked for extermination.
In the Nazi mind, all Jews represented the Bolshevik peril. "German National Socialism and Jewish Bolshevism could not coexist," German soldiers were told. "This is a war of extinction." There is simply no way Jews could escape the fate of Russians in general. By July 1942 the first extermination camps Belzec, Sobibor and Treblinka were opened.
During the winter of 1940-41, there were food shortages and public grumbling in Germany. The Nazis realized the food was the key to public support. According to historians Deborah Dwork and Jan van Pelt, the Nazis calculated that "tens of millions of Russians would have to die in order to safeguard German meat rations. German food would not go east to the invading army; rather [2.5 million] German soldiers would be fed at the expense of the local population." ("Holocaust: A History" p 265.)
The Nazis "looked to the east to become the breadbasket of New Europe...a true granary [characterized by] low density of settlement...prosperous farms and attractive small towns." They envisaged "the deportation of 41 to 51 million people which included 80-85% of all Poles...It was tacitly understood that they would be killed." (266)
Goring remarked to Italian Foreign Minister Ciano in Dec. 1941: "This year between 20 and 30 million persons will die in Russia of hunger. Perhaps it is well that it should be so, for certain nations must be decimated." (190)
At the same time, the Allies subjected the German civilian population to a murderous bombing campaign. In July 1943 in a Hamburg fire storm, 50,000 people died in "Operation Gomorrah." 800,000 fled the city in the aftermath.
World War Two was a time of unparalleled savagery and ethnic cleansing. I will not attempt a complete inventory here. The Romanians used the cover of war to kill 250,000 Jews at their own initiative. The Croats murdered 350,000 Serbs. The German army lost 4 million men killed and 4 million wounded. The Soviet army lost over 9 million dead and 18 million wounded. Civilian losses were 1.8 million in Germany and 11.5 million in Russia. China lost 20 million civilians.
The real holocaust was the war itself. The Jewish holocaust was a part of it. The injustice is focusing on the Jewish experience, which is racism in the name of anti-racism. It implies that only Jewish lives matter.
The challenge is to mourn the Second World War as a collective tragedy for humanity and to recognize that it was perpetrated by the Judeo Masonic central banking cartel which controls the world. It wanted to destroy the enemies of "Jewish bankers," discredit concepts of race and nationalism, trauma-brainwash Jews to establish Israel, defeat the German people once and for all, expand Communism to Eastern Europe, brutalize and demoralize mankind and turn a profit, all at once.
As you can see, ordinary people cannot afford to embrace causes without first discovering the hidden agendas or consequences. Obviously we need to stop arguing about how many Jews died 65 years ago and focus on preventing World War Three and the NWO.
Major Robert H. Williams reported in his "Williams Intelligence Summary" for February 1950 about James P. Warburg's part in the plot against Christendom. He said: "Last November, the widow of the late General Ludendorff, on trial at Nuremberg, explained why her husband broke with Hiter, confirmed the reports in convincing detail.
She stated that, '...as early as the summer of 1929 James P. Warburg had undertaken an assignment from financial circles in America, which desired to exercise solitary influence on Germany in the unleashing of a national revolution. Warburg's task was to find the suitable man in Germany, and he entered into contract with Adolph Hitler who subequently received sums of money amounting to 27 million dollars up to January 30, 1932, and still another seven million thereafter, enabling him to finance his movement.'"

Stalin's Jewish Mass Murderers by Sever Plocker
We mustn't forget that some of greatest murderers of modern times were Jewish
Here's a particularly forlorn historical date: Almost 90 years ago, between the 19th and 20th of December 1917, in the midst of the Bolshevik revolution and civil war, Lenin signed a decree calling for the establishment of The All-Russian Extraordinary Commission for Combating Counter-Revolution and Sabotage, also known as Cheka.
Within a short period of time, Cheka became the largest and cruelest state security organization. Its organizational structure was changed every few years, as were its names: From Cheka to GPU, later to NKVD, and later to KGB.
We cannot know with certainty the number of deaths Cheka was responsible for in its various manifestations, but the number is surely at least 20 million, including victims of the forced collectivization, the hunger, large purges, expulsions, banishments, executions, and mass death at Gulags.
Whole population strata were eliminated: Independent farmers, ethnic minorities, members of the bourgeoisie, senior officers, intellectuals, artists, labor movement activists, "opposition members" who were defined completely randomly, and countless members of the Communist party itself.
In his new, highly praised book "The War of the World, "Historian Niall Ferguson writes that no revolution in the history of mankind devoured its children with the same unrestrained appetite as did the Soviet revolution. In his book on the Stalinist purges, Tel Aviv University's Dr. Igal Halfin writes that Stalinist violence was unique in that it was directed internally.
Lenin, Stalin, and their successors could not have carried out their deeds without wide-scale cooperation of disciplined "terror officials," cruel interrogators, snitches, executioners, guards, judges, perverts, and many bleeding hearts who were members of the progressive Western Left and were deceived by the Soviet regime of horror and even provided it with a kosher certificate.
All these things are well-known to some extent or another, even though the former Soviet Union's archives have not yet been fully opened to the public. But who knows about this? Within Russia itself, very few people have been brought to justice for their crimes in the NKVD's and KGB's service. The Russian public discourse today completely ignores the question of "How could it have happened to us?" As opposed to Eastern European nations, the Russians did not settle the score with their Stalinist past.
And us, the Jews? An Israeli student finishes high school without ever hearing the name "Genrikh Yagoda," the greatest Jewish murderer of the 20th Century, the GPU's deputy commander and the founder and commander of the NKVD. Yagoda diligently implemented Stalin's collectivization orders and is responsible for the deaths of at least 10 million people. His Jewish deputies established and managed the Gulag system. After Stalin no longer viewed him favorably, Yagoda was demoted and executed, and was replaced as chief hangman in 1936 by Yezhov, the "bloodthirsty dwarf."
Yezhov was not Jewish but was blessed with an active Jewish wife. In his Book "Stalin: Court of the Red Star", Jewish historian Sebag Montefiore writes that during the darkest period of terror, when the Communist killing machine worked in full force, Stalin was surrounded by beautiful, young Jewish women.
Stalin's close associates and loyalists included member of the Central Committee and Politburo Lazar Kaganovich. Montefiore characterizes him as the "first Stalinist" and adds that those starving to death in Ukraine, an unparalleled tragedy in the history of human kind aside from the Nazi horrors and Mao's terror in China, did not move Kaganovich.
Many Jews sold their soul to the devil of the Communist revolution and have blood on their hands for eternity. We'll mention just one more: Leonid Reichman, head of the NKVD's special department and the organization's chief interrogator, who was a particularly cruel sadist.
In 1934, according to published statistics, 38.5 percent of those holding the most senior posts in the Soviet security apparatuses were of Jewish origin. They too, of course, were gradually eliminated in the next purges. In a fascinating lecture at a Tel Aviv University convention this week, Dr. Halfin described the waves of soviet terror as a "carnival of mass murder," "fantasy of purges", and "essianism of evil." Turns out that Jews too, when they become captivated by messianic ideology, can become great murderers, among the greatest known by modern history.
The Jews active in official communist terror apparatuses (In the Soviet Union and abroad) and who at times led them, did not do this, obviously, as Jews, but rather, as Stalinists, communists, and "Soviet people." Therefore, we find it easy to ignore their origin and "play dumb": What do we have to do with them? But let's not forget them. My own view is different. I find it unacceptable that a person will be considered a member of the Jewish people when he does great things, but not considered part of our people when he does amazingly despicable things.
Even if we deny it, we cannot escape the Jewishness of "our hangmen," who served the Red Terror with loyalty and dedication from its establishment. After all, others will always remind us of their origin.
