FascismExpo

The Mayor's office has announced that next year's Holocaust Memorial Day will be celebrated with an exhibition about Fascism. FascismExpo aims to resolve some of the misunderstandings about Fascism and to open up a dialogue between Fascists and the victims of Fascist violence. The exhibition will be the UK's largest Fascist cultural event since Mosley's Earl's Court rally in 1939.

A packed programme of lectures, seminars, workshops and debates will focus on Fascism's achievements and its long-term beneficial impact on Europe. Former concentration camp inmates, allied prisoners of war and survivors of the Guernica bombing will attend, in a spirit of reconciliation and mutual understanding.

A spokesperson for the Mayor said:

It is important that we see Fascism in its wider context. Too much of the
current discourse focuses on Fascism's violent side. Its cultural, artistic
and economic achievements are often ignored. This makes today's Fascists
feel isolated and vulnerable. Holding FascismExpo on Holocaust Memorial Day
sends out a strong message that we want to encourage dialogue between
Fascists and those who, perhaps, distrust them. This is about reaching out
and building bridges. We hope that a number of Jewish people and war veterens
will come along. We are particularly pleased to have a delegation from Guernica
and our surprise guest will be a senior rabbi, who will open the event.

One of the highlights of FascismExpo will be an exhibition of Fascist art and architecture, featuring scale models of Mussolini's EUR and Hitler's proposed capital, Germania.

Confirmed speakers include:

Colin Jordan - "My friend Oswald: the best prime minister Britain never had."
David Irving - "How the Jews benefited from the Holocaust."
Jean-Marie LePen - "Why the Nazi occupation of France wasn't really that bad."
Jorg Haider - "Hitler's economic miracle."
Alessandra Mussolini - "How my grandfather made the trains run on time."

FascismExpo will be held at an exhibition centre in East London - an area which had a large Jewish population and which suffered particularly badly from bombing by Goering's Luftwaffe.

East Ender Nellie Slater, who lost both her parents when her house was bombed, will be one of the VIP guests at the exhibition. She said:

Although I was orphaned by Nazi bombs and my brother died in a POW camp, I think we should forgive the Fascists and try to understand their point of view. I'm really looking forward to FascismExpo.

FascismExpo will take place on the 26th, 27th and 28th of January 2007.

this isn't sensible argument, this is childish nonsense! your gonna set us all back years at this rate, infact Im surprised you havent formed some supremist christian group to go on the rampage, maybe you have!

Hi ich bin Chriswab aus Bottrop. Viele GrĂ¼sse !!

Satire can be so cutting, can it not?

Anyway on a lesser note I am glad I am not the only person left who remembers what an evil bastard Colin Jordan, post war leader of the British Nazi party was (and his wife).

Anonymous - have you been drinking?

Who is the 'us' that I'm going to set back years and what makes you think that I am a Christian supremacist.

Granny - believe it or not, there is no "was" about Colin Jordan. The crazy idiot is still alive and writing his half-baked rubbish from a remote croft in Scotland.

I remember him going down for a long stretch for arson/attempted murder on Jewish owned shops, this would be mid 60s.
He must be 80+.
An old, but not a grand old, man.

83 according to Wikipedia.

Some people see him as a 'grand old man' - the so-called British People's Party were over the moon to have his endorsement last year!

I have been trying to translate chriswoznita's comment, it came out as

Rear one I is Chriswab from Bottrop. Many greetings!!

Hilarious post Pub Philsopher

I took it to mean
Hi. I am Chriswab from Bottrap.

Guten Tag Chris!

US is everyone. people. humans. resdients of planet earth.

Extremism is wrong in any form, and this site and views are - to my mind - extreme, this isnt engaging in debate is it? Its right wing opinion.

And as much as i dislike organised religion i dont see how this helps. I didnt say your are a christian, but you appear to be saying that all muslims are suicide bombers or against the west (whatever the west is, west - on supermare perhaps, west wing??) ergo wheres your group as everyone else must therefore be white supremesicts and christian, init?

You total cretin, anonymous.

THIS is 'extreme'? LOL. Not the Expo and the presenters opinions?

How noble. *US*. Which presumably would cover the people affected by July 7 who (see previous post) arent ALL that impressed with a badly timed celebration of a religion used as an excuse to murder?

The site, far from 'extreme', appears to be stating the obvious in this respect.

Sticking the word ergo into your last dippy paragraph wont help paper over the fact you've clearly lost it.

Why isn't Chimpy McFlightsuit invited. Sounds like his kind of crowd.

Just say'n.

Anonymous - I can't speak for the others but I have never said that all Muslims are suicide bombers, or are anti-western.

That said, the Koran does advocate and legitimise attacks on non-believers. Any Muslim who says that Islam doesn't advocate violence either hasn't read the Koran or is choosing to ignore some of his religious text - something for which Muslims often criticise Christians.

The 7/7 attacks were carried out in the name of, and justified by, Islam. To use the anniversary of these attacks to celebrate the religion that motivated them seems somewhat insensitive don't you think?

You don't need to be a white supremacist or a Christian fundamentalist to object to IslamExpo.

This from a schoolteacher....


Islam or death

I read Le Roy Barnett's letter ("Muslims, speak up," June 26) about Muslims' opinion on Abdul Rahman's conversion to Christianity.

Islam is not only a religion, it is a complete way of life. Islam guides Muslims from birth to grave. The Quran and prophet Muhammad's words and practical application of Quran in life cannot be changed.

Islam is a guide for humanity, for all times, until the day of judgment. It is forbidden in Islam to convert to any other religion. The penalty is death. There is no disagreement about it.

Islam is being embraced by people of other faiths all the time. They should know they can embrace Islam, but cannot get out. This rule is not made by Muslims; it is the supreme law of God.

Please do not ask us Muslims to pick some rules and disregard other rules. Muslims are supposed to embrace Islam in its totality.

The timing of islam-expo is clearly designed to divert attention onto the muslim cause. Holding the expo on 7th July demonstrates a lack of compassion for the survivors and respect for those murdered. Surely the 'Religion of Peace' could have created a space for peace to propagate on this day by holding the expo on another date. The day of rememberance has been diminished and sullied for political pseudo-religious motives.

Despite their touchy-feely outreach propaganda, they have shown they are, after all, callous introverted fascists.

Indeed.

Excellent analogy and here is another one. Imagine someone speaking like this about Communism or Fascism:
"Communism itself is a peaceful ideology and a few Communists that engage in violence do not represent Communism!"

Londoners should realise what rubbish their congestion charges and various other penalties are spent on by the London Mayor. It is certainly not on improving their transport!

FYI
Nazism was not really true fascism. The original fascist, Mussolini, was not a Jew hater or a simple minded racist. He used to say the Roman Empire, which he tried to re-create, was made up of all sorts of races and religions. It wasn't until the Nazi influence was too strong that the Fascists adopted the same kind of anti-Semitic laws the Germans had.

Sorry Nazra Quraishi,
but anyone who believes that someone who converts away from Islam should be killed, should be killed themselves. Islam is the prototype of Fascism and Nazism

Acquiring Knowledge Intrinsic to the debate concerning determinism is the issue of first cause. Deism, a philosophy articulated in the seventeenth century, holds that the universe has been deterministic since creation, but ascribes the creation to a metaphysical God or first cause outside of the chain of determinism. God may have begun the process, Deism argues, but God has not influenced its evolution. This perspective illustrates a puzzle underlying any conception of determinism:
