My research on conspiracy theories sometimes leads me to the Rense website. Maybe it's the wacky UFO articles or Jeff Rense's truly startling 1970s hair style, but I've always regarded the website with a sort of amusement in spite of its promotion of bigotry. After reading the following article, however, I've had a change of heart. The Rense package may be laughably bizarre, but their 2008 publication of an anonymously written column entitled "German Labor Camps vs The Soviet Gulag" indicates that the views espoused on Rense.com are nothing to laugh at.
People who complain about the German concentration camps in WW2, rarely complain about the very much larger Soviet Gulag camps, which Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn (in his magnum opus The Gulag Archipelago,paperback edition, vol 2 p 79) describes as being under the control of the Jew Matvei Berman, the "Chief of Gulag". Yakov Rappoport was deputy chief of construction (p 78). Solzhenitsyn credits Naftaly Frenkel, a 'Turkish-born Jew', with being works chief / chief overseer of the one-hundred-and-forty-mile-long Belomor (Baltic -White Sea) canal, built entirely with slavelabour (p72). Frenkel, Berman and Rappoport are amongst six men described by Solzhenitsyn as 'hired murderers', 'each of whom accounted for thirty thousand lives' (p 91).
Hitler saw the tremendous danger posed to Germany by Communism. He appreciated the desperate need to eliminate this threat, a fact that earned him the immense hatred and animosity of the Jewish organisations and the media and politicians of the west which they could influence. After all, according to the Jewish writer Chaim Bermant, although Jews formed less than five percent of Russia's population, they formed more than fifty percent of its revolutionaries. According to the Jewish writer Chaim Bermant in his book The Jews (1977, chapter 8):
'It must be added that most of the leading revolutionaries who convulsed Europe in the final decades of the last century and the first decades of this one, stemmed from prosperous Jewish families.. They were perhaps typified by the father of revolution, Karl Marx.. Thus when, after the chaos of World War I, revolutions broke out all over Europe, Jews were everywhere at the helm; Trotsky, Sverdlov, Kamenev and Zinoviev in Russia, Bela Kun in Hungary, Kurt Eisner in Bavaria, and, most improbable of all, Rosa Luxemburg in Berlin.
'To many outside observers, the Russian revolution looked like a Jewish conspiracy, especially when it was followed by Jewish-led revolutionary outbreaks in much of central Europe. The leadership of the Bolshevik Party had a preponderance of Jews.. Of the seven members of the Politburo, the inner cabinet of the country, four, Trotsky (Bronstein), Zinoviev (Radomsky), Kamenev (Rosenfeld) and Sverdlov, were Jews.'
"The major role Jewish leaders played in the November (Russian) revolution was probably more important than any other factor in confirming (Hitler's) anti-Semitic beliefs." (J&S Pool, Who Financed Hitler, p.164).
Jews in pre-war Germany were accepted as enemy aliens after Samuel Untermeyer, the leader of the World Jewish Economic Federation, declared war on Germany on August 6 1933. (Edwin Black The Transfer Agreement: the Untold Story of the Secret Pact between the Third Reich and Palestine (1984) pp272-277) According to Black, 'The one man who most embodied the potential death blow to Germany was Samuel Untermeyer.' (p 369). This was the culmination of a worldwide boycott of German goods led by international Jewish organizations. The London Daily Express on March 24, 1933 carried the headline Judea Declares War on Germany.
According to Rense, Hitler's anti-Semitism was a legitimate response to a real threat posed by Jewish revolutionaries, and the Third Reich's anti-Jewish policies merely a reaction to hostilities initiated by Samuel Untermeyer of the World Jewish Economic Federation. Those gross perversions of history should be called what they are: pro-Nazi..
