How did I miss this? Hector Avalos’ recent publication over at Bible and Interpretation:
There is a new movement of holocaust denialists, and the prime architects of this movement are biblical scholars. I am speaking not of the Jewish Holocaust under the Nazi regime, but of the Canaanite holocaust reported in biblical texts.
These Canaanite holocaust denialists argue that the Canaanite holocaust did not really happen. And if it did happen, then it was justified and not analogous to the Nazi holocaust.
Go give it a read and check the comments (particularly Thomas L. Thompson’s comment).
