Now I am being accused by Holocaust fundamentalists of making
gratuitously provocative statements about Holocaust survivors and the
history of World War II.  They ask:  Why?  What is your motive?  How
can you dare question statements made by survivors?  It is said that my
motivation must be fascist, or neo-Nazi, or anti-Semitic.  I have been
told that I am doing it for money.  It has been pointed out to me that
I have been writing for 35 years without making a dime from it, and now
I am taking money to write for anti-Semitic racists.

I will never be able to disprove these charges.  One of the motives I
have for writing for the Institute [for Historical Review] is in fact
the money.  I've been editing their monthly newsletter now for six
months.  It's true that I don't have any other source of income.  One
of the reasons I write is for money. I have always written what I
wanted and how I wanted.  I never got paid for it.  I still write what
I want and now I get paid for some of it.

Everyone needs an income, even me.  I have an 84-year-old mother, a
13-year-old stepdaughter and a pregnant wife.  The pregnant wife is the
one that's worrisome, or rather, her cargo.  A baby wasn't in our plan.
It wasn't in mine anyhow.  When Alicia told me about it I was stunned.
