Yesterday, the day they announced the death of Osama
bin-Laden, is also the day they announced the death of Adolf Hitler.May 1st, 1945 and May 1st, 2011.66 years apart.
Ironically, we have no corpse for either of these
anti-Semitic murderers.No grave
site.No shrine.No jamrah
at Mina, for stoning the Devil during a dark pilgrimage.
Today, May 2, is Yom ha-Shoah, the day when Jewish people
around the world remember the Holocaust. It is a day for solemn prayers and for chanting the Kaddish.
So ... when coincidences multiply and words seem unequal to
the task, here is a YouTube link to a song that says it all.Play it for all those who have suffered and died
because of ideologies and stupidities.For
religion and race.For redemption and
All those.Jew and
Muslim.American and Arab.European and African and Asian.For all those cold and broken hallelujahs.
Your supposition is right here. According to Michael Burleigh's corimehenspve "Third Reich: A New History", there are extensive computations which show that under FPTP the Nazis would have won in 1930 rather than a few years later, and Burleigh discounts the voting system as a significant factor in the rise of the Nazis.
Saw a really good piece on some obscure history on the History Channel about Iraq, the then Grand Mufti, the Baath party and the Nazis. I think it was called "Sadam Hussein and the Nazis." Did you know the Mufti and Himmler conspired to export the Jews to the Mid East, put them in a camp and then bomb them? Well worth watching. In all my years and studies, I never heard about this!
I read Ratlines. Im notr sure if Poch is hitler. On the military channel, a few years ago when I received it, I saw a documentary about Hitlers Dr, dr morrell. He was an std dr and hitler fired him after he found out that the anti-gas pills morrell gave him every day contained arsnic. By that time hitler was shuffling and keeping one hand in his pocket gripping something, like a person w/parkinsons. Anyhow, I saw in late october 1973 a man & a woman at w 4th st subway (NYC), the nite the A & D trains ran on the same track. They were older people. The man looked to be in his 80's. He was screaming at the top of his lungs in german. The woman (who looked to be in her 50's) was trying to calm him down. It was just me and them in the station at that time. The woman was blond, stocky & wearing a "jewish wedding" hairdo--basically, pulled up w/juice can curls in the back which was popular with jewish people in nyc. Anyhow, I might have been smirking at them before I turned back to my book, but I noticed that the man kept one hand in his pocket
and used the other arm to gesture. No disrespect to military heros but one arm was Ed Dole & the other was John McCain. Anyhow, I turned back to my book. I was about 50 yards from them, so i didn't think they noticed me when I heard shuffling. The old man was right next to me staring at me with the evilist blue eyes. he had hitler hair and hitler stach, except it was pure white (a little salt & pepper in the stach). I went further down the station and he shuffled back. The D train had come in and they entered. The D train's next stop would have been 34th st which would take them to the LIRR. I know his nephew & family was in LI and also a conclave of Nazis from another ratline was in LI in the 70's. Anyhow I just wanted to tell you. Maybe it will give you another clue.
Hi Peter. Have just been reading your very interesting Sinister Forces and the masterpiece Unholy Alliance. I'm waiting right now to receive Stairway to Heaven and Ratline. It goes a little slow because your books are unfortunately not as accessible where I live here in the Scandinavian hemisphere. I have two things I want to mention to you. First, a Danish book that has not been published in English by a local known historian from 1954 only released the first edition after a smear campaign that got this writer shelved for many years by the established bourgeoisie and which forced the historian / author to take the distance from it. I would love to go into any details if it could be of your interest. It is my understanding that there is a lot hidden material in this book that could be of historical interest to you.
The other thing I will mention is perhaps more a question. Have you ever looked closely at the whole Jack the Ripper affair ?. Although there has been written numerous books on the subject. I still think there are some elements that have not been looked in to with new eyes. I think among other things, the anti-Semitic writing on the wall which actually represent a pattern very similar to Charles Manson's attempts to get it to look as if it were black people who stood behind his indirect actions. I have studied this for some years and has done me some interesting observations that I would also like to go into if this might could be of any interest.
Either way I want to thank you for your good books, and can only encourage you to continue and must apologize if I did not express myself quite grammatically correct.
