Six million dead Jews: Don't blame Hitler

Following my post the other day on Israel's alleged employment of Nazi scientists and those striving to rewrite German history, someone commenting as Shraga Elam chimes in:

If I were you, I wouldn’t be so keen to demonstrate my ignorance. FYI no Hitler’s written order for the Judeocide was ever found and one doesn’t have to be a Holocaust denier to see no direct involvement of this Nazi criminal in the industrial extermination of Jews. For over 30 years there is an ongoing discussion among very respected historians trying to find an explanation to this rather strange situation.

Even if Hitler did not order the extermination of Europe's Jews he would still have been held to account: it could not have escaped his notice that millions of Jews, and other "undesirables" were rounded up, interred and ended up dead. Elam nonetheless argues that Hitler is innocent as he had "no direct involvement" in the "industrial extermination of Jews." Ignorance, even if proven, does not absolve Hitler of responsibility for the actions of the German state under his leadership.

Commenter Elam also argues that journalist Elam can't be a "fruitcake" because in 2004 he won a Gold Walkely as one of a team of five reporting on financial matters. Unfortunately for Elam his shared  Gold Walkley has nothing to do with Germany's attempted extermination of Europe's Jews and is totally irrelevant to matters under discussion.

One of the main components of fruitcakes? Nuts.

At least this fruitcake will try and argue with you. Unlike the moron who originally drew him to our attention - Antony Loewenstein, who we know reads all of this, yet is too cowardly to jump in and have a go.

Deep down inside, he knows he's clueless.

Dan Lewis can bring Loewenstein into any conversation. Obsessed much?

Err... Where do you think the original reference to Shraga Elam came from? Loewenstein! When you've pulled your foot out of your mouth and your head out of your arse, do follow the link above and see for yourself.

Anyway, I certainly can't bring Loewenstein into any conversation as he is a gutless coward, unwilling to EVER take on his opponents. Even though he reads all of these posts, such is his ego.

Dan, your response demonstrates that you are not at all obsessed with Loewenstein. See a counselor, dude.
