Furthermore there is no similarity between The Holocaust and anything that has
ever happened in New Zealand unlike what the commissioner incorrectly said.
The race Relations Commissioner did not make any comparison with the
Holocaust, that is your incorrect assertion.
Yes he did. From the article that The Listener refused to publish.
"The Race Relations Commissioner decreed in your magazine, twice, that the
British colonialisation of New Zealand was a holocaust. Meng Foon
categorically stated that he was comfortable with equating the NZ Maori
experience with the holocaust. Asked are you comfortable with that? he said,
Yeah. He went on to double down on that. (Listener 12-12-2020 p.34)
And further the article they refused to print includes this.
"I write on behalf of my Jewish ancestors. Why does NZs leading race
relations/human rights expert dismiss the Holocaust as nothing worse than
British colonialization? By denigrating the Holocaust as nothing more than
British colonialism writ large Commissioner Foon simply resonates with
implicit anti Semitism: Those fucking Jews, they were treated no worse than
The word Holocaust describes the specific Nazi policy the extermination of a
race. This happened in NZ? According to Mr Foon it did. He has created a new
anti-semitic myth, Jews as exaggerators. His reinterpretation of history will
now be on the record for future generations of New Zealanders. The holocaust
is merely British colonization.
So, I dare speak on behalf of relatives and the 6 million Jews (along with
homosexuals, Roma, the mentally disabled, etc.) who were exterminated in the
greatest outrage in human history. Their memory is excoriated by the NZ Race
Why did the Race Relations Commissioner, a supposed expert in what words are
inappropriate and amount to being hate speech and being racially biased write
something totally offensive to Jews? And those who had their families
exterminated? Too insignificant, it would appear, compared to the political
demands. He agrees with a rewriting of history. He is obviously of the view
there was ethnic cleansing in NZ, without a shred of evidence to support such a
disturbing claim. And your magazine was happy to broadcast this perception
without any chance to try and clarify what really happened in the Holocaust.
 The great enemy of truth is very often not the lie deliberate, contrived
and dishonest but the myth persistent, persuasive and repeated. John F.
 Holocaust has a specific meaning. It does not refer to progroms or other
types of ethnic cleansing, all of which are reprehensible.
This is a short synopsis of the origin and derivation of the word. Holocaust.
If your magazine wants further elucidation on this matter please get back to me.
Human history has few tragedies that rival the magnitude and moral bankruptcy
of the Holocaust, the systematic state-sponsored killing of six million Jewish
men, women, and children and millions of others by Nazi Germany and its
In Berlin on January 20, 1942, Hitler held a conference, noting no country
wanted to accept Jews. The mass murder was the final solution to the
so-called Jewish question. The deliberate and systematic destruction of a group
of people because of their ethnicity, nationality, religion, or race was given
a name, genocide,.
How did this most infamous of genocides become known as the Holocaust?
The word Holocaust is derived from the Greek holokauston, a translation ?olah,
meaning a burnt sacrifice offered whole to God. This word was chosen because in
the ultimate manifestation of the Nazi killing programthe extermination
campsthe bodies of the victims were consumed whole in crematoria and open
 If you excoriate someone, you let that person know that you really, really
disagree with them. This verb goes beyond mere criticism; it implies anger, a
harsh and insulting tone, and even a scathing attack."
Lots of words for you to read but do try.
