Dear Mr McCarthy
I have just had time to review my response to your open letter and I note
that I failed to account for the years 1991 and 1990. Perhaps you can post
the following on your site:


1991 - during the Australian War Crimes Trials at Adelaide, the minimum
figure still stood at 6:4 million Jewish deaths. This despite the fact that
The Advertiser had the previous year carried a tiny item in its pages
wherein it was announced that the Auschwitz concentration camp commemorative
plaques carrying the 4 million death figure had been removed.

1990 - within Melbourne's legal circles the 6:4  death figure was generally
held to be true. Only those lawyers who had made contact with their
colleague, Mr John Bennett, would have been aware that "the figures and the
story kept on changing".
In July, the plaques carrying the 4 million figure were removed and
Professor Shmuel Krakowski, Yad Vashem, admitted that the sopa story was not
true. None of this information filtered through into Australian society at
large. certainly within the education sectors the 6:4 million figure still
stood.

Mr McCarthy, I would welcome from you the next question or questions. After
all, as soon as I posted you my last response Rabbi Cooper of the Simon
Wiesenthal Centre became active with his hounding hate-talk. We are now
being investigated by our Human Rights and Equal Opportunity Commission
because our Zionist Federation of Australia has lodged a complaint against
us. Note that Rabbi Cooper came in with his complaint before the latter.

I now have a question for you, Mr McCarthy:

How do you evaluate what Israel Shahak writes in his Jewish History, Jewish
Religion - The weight of three thousand years ?

I do hope you will oblige me with a detailed response so that I too can post
your response on our site.
Sincerely
Fredrick Toben

I haven't read it, I'm afraid.
