While many in the various parties that make up the Norwegian political spectrum within its parliament are aghast (and rightly so) at what this class A jerk has said, they are the same one who vilify the world’s only Jewish state, and on a regular basis. So, cry me a river, but I could care less how many of them announce their disgust over the disgraceful words of this politician, his thinking is only a few steps away from theirs. KGS

Norwegian lawmaker: Shoah never happened
Anders Mathisen of Labor Party asked to resign after reportedly saying, ‘There is no evidence the gas chambers or mass graves existed’
Norwegian Labor Party lawmaker Anders Mathisen isn’t very popular right now — members of his own party are calling for his resignation after MatHisen reportedly told the Finnmarken newspaper that the Holocaust never happened.
“There is no evidence the gas chambers or mass graves existed,” he told the newspaper, according to reports. “Even reputable Holocaust historians have admitted it cannot be established.”
Mathisen reportedly has accused Holocaust survivors of exaggerating their stories, stating that the public has been brainwashed into believing the Holocaust took place because of films such as “Schindler’s List”, according to the forum.
The lawmaker, who also posted his findings on his Facebook page, has refused to resign from the party.
“Holocaust survivors are aghast at the morally repugnant comments of a Norwegian member of Parliament,” Elan Steinberg, vice president of the American Gathering of Holocaust Survivors and their Descendants, said in a statement in which he called for Mathison’s expulsion from office.
