"Through verbal juggling, the denier turns the victim of the Holocaust into a belligerent thug who must be restrained, silenced, and preached to. To that end, the term "Shoah trauma" in its various conjugations will be used as a means for explaining the sickening conduct of the Jews living in Israel today. These people, who experienced the Shoah on their own flesh, as well as their descendents, are accused of refusing to leave behind this "post-trauma," which is said to cloud their overall judgment.

"The alleged manifestations of this are uncontrollable angry outbursts directed at the weak, be it a new immigrant, a Palestinian or a foreign worker. Notably, Israel's crimes are seen as equal to Nazi crimes. Current-day European states are seen as an enlightened model, a symbol of moderation and tolerance, as if these people are not the ones who not so long ago were responsible for the peak of human barbarity. Indeed, facts and figures do not confuse Holocaust deniers."
