Message-ID: <9401300027.A0555wk@banished.com> Organization: Banished CPU - (503) 232-6566 X-Mailer: TBBS/PIMP v2.41 Distribution: world Date: Sun, 30 Jan 94 00:27:38 Lines: 53 THOU SHALT NOT BEAR FALSE WITNESS AGAINST THY NEIGHBORS. Though few remember, there was supposedly a Jewish "Holocaust" during World War I, in addition to the Jewish "Holocaust" of World War II! Not only that, but the number of victims was claimed, both times, to have been SIX MILLION!!! The "evil" Germans supposedly did it TWICE! Actually, they never even did it ONCE. The FIRST alleged "Holocaust of Six Million Jews at the hands of the Germans" has been forgotten, but the SECOND alleged "Holocaust of Six Million Jews at the hands of the Germans" is today a highly-promoted OFFICIAL TRUTH. The reason the first "Holocaust" story was discarded is, I think, related to the saying, "If at first you don't succeed, destroy all evidence that you tried." They failed to convince everyone the first time, so they quit publicizing it. Then they tried the same stunt again later, after World War II, and now they've got most people believing it! But that is changing. SIX MILLION JEWS exterminated during World War I, too?!? -------------------------------------------------------- In a major speech in October, 1919, in Albany, New York, Martin Glenn (a past governor of New York) reported at length to a rapt audience on "the extermination of 6 million Jews and the holocaust of European Jewry" during "the Great War" (i.e., World War I). This now rarely-remembered claim was publicized in, among others, the October 31, 1919, issue of the _American Hebrew Magazine_, published by the American Jewish Committee.

Message-ID: <firstname.lastname@example.org> From: email@example.com (Jolyon Silversmith) Date: 2 Feb 1994 23:36:17 GMT [quoting Ken McVay] # Does it exist? Did it exist? Frankly, I do not know. However, given your # previous lies and misrepresentations, it would not surprise me to discover # it was simply another denial fabrication - I await the results of ongoing # research into this matter with interest. It exists. But it does not say anything remotely near what Gannon claims. You've got to be an incredibly stupid anti-Semite to cite an article that is available (if not easily -it took some digging around in the Harvard microfilm collection) and is not at all what you claim it to be... ***************** Here are some excerpts from "The Crucifiction of Jews Must Stop!" by Martin H. Glynn, _The American Hebrew_, October 31, 1919, p. 582. From across the sea six million men and women call to us for help, and eight hundred thousand little children cry for bread.... In the face of death, in the throes of starvation there is no place for mental distinctions of creed, no place for physical differentiations of race. In this catastrophe, when six million human beings are being whirled towards thegrave by a cruel and relentless fate, only the most idealistic promptings of human nature should sway the heart and move the hand. Six million men and women are dying from lack of the necessities of life; eight hundred thousand children cry for bread. And this fate is upon them through no fault of their own, through no transgression of the laws of God or man; but through the awful tyranny of war and a bigoted lust for Jewish blood. In this threatened holocaust of human life, forgotten are the niceties of philosophical distinction, forgotten are the differences of historical interpretation; and the determination to help the helpless, to shelter the homeless, to clothe the naked and to feed the hungry becomes a religion at whose altar men of every race can worship and women of every creed can kneel... --- So there you have it. The article does not claim that six million Jews were killed in World War I; it warns that six million are likely to die without aid and an end to anti-Semitism. Is it a strongly worded article? Yes. Does it lend any support to Gannon's outrageous claims? No. Gannon will probably continue to post - he may even try to dispute the text of the article. But I don't think he has any credibility left now, if he had any to begin with. -- _________________________ Jolyon ("Jol") Silversmith __________________________ firstname.lastname@example.org Past Director: Civil Liberties Union of Harvard Mather House Mail Ctr 356 Editor: The Mather Messenger (House Newsletter) ____________ I have a firm grip on reality.
