6 Million Dead Jews? (Is there a chance that this is somewhat exagerrated?)

This is from a review of a book about "the holocaust™" on About time we had some more honest discussion about the infamous "6 Million Number."  I am NOT a holocaust denier. That is silly. I lean more towards the revisionist camp, however. I think science has greatly expanded & can now give us more answers to 65 yr old questions & mysteries. Use love. Keep an open mind.

This review is from: Debating the Holocaust: A New Look At Both Sides (Perfect Paperback)
The Holocaust and the `Six Million'

In 2009 Thomas Dalton published a book entitled Debating the Holocaust, a new look at both sides. The following short essay is based on Chapter Three entitled: On the Origin, and Future, of the "Six Million". I am examining only the source and validity of the number `Six Million' as used by the Zionists.
Dalton wrote:

In the traditional account of the Holocaust story, we never hear about the origins of the famous "6 million." And for good reason: it has a potentially incriminating past (p.49).

He adds the following footnote to the text quoted above: A more thorough accounting of the following story is given by Heddesheimer, in his book The First Holocaust (2005; 2nd edition). Also, see Rudolf (2005: 18-27).

The New York Times is the so-called American `paper of record'. Since the 1890s the Times has had Jewish ownership and management, and thus has long been sensitive to matters of Jewish concern. Perhaps this is part of the explanation for the Times's astonishing prescience when it came to anticipating the Jewish death figure. Dalton uses it as his source to cite instances of Jewish suffering around the world (pp. 50-55). The use of the number `6 million' does beg an explanation. Here is a summary of those reports:
6 million Jews in the world in 1869, and
6 million in Russia alone in 1891, and
6 million Jewish families in Russia, and
6 million Jewish people in Russia in 1911, and
6 million suffering in Europe in 1915, 1920, 1938, 1942, and
6 million in the German-controlled Reich...and
6 million killed in the Holocaust.

Dalton writes:

Thus it appears that the figure of 6 million represents a sort of constant in Jewish suffering, irrespective of circumstances. It seems to possess a kind of magical symbolism, and hence becomes a sacred icon of Jewish persecution (it is in this sense that I refer to it as a "magic number"). As such, the figure perhaps stands as a strictly symbolic number rather than as literal truth. Like the term "holocaust" itself, it was obviously well established many years before the rise of the Nazis, or the onset of the World War II Holocaust. (p.53)

I urge you to read Thomas Dalton's whole book. It is well-researched and contains a wealth of information on this controversial topic. Be sure to read the introduction (pp. 5-12) and you may wish to read the epilogue (pp. 255-63) after reading the introduction; it is an informative overview of the book's salient points.


HAVE HEART " Pave Paradise "

One of the best hardcore bands ever to come out of Boston! Too bad they broke up a few years ago. I did get to see them a few times. They said they will NEVER play a reunion show or get back together for any reason. Let's hope they were lying. ♥♥♥

SET IT STRAIGHT "For You. For Me '

I don't know too much about this band. I used to have one of their CD's and I remember someone sending it to me for free. I think I ordered some music from a small record label or distro, and the kid sent it along with my purchases. Good stuff!!!

INSTED "Live and Let Live"

Great band from the 80's! They put out an album on Epitaph Recs. I was never too into them in the past. To be honest I'm still not too into them. But they are a classic hardcore band, so I give them respect. They played some reunion shows a few years ago but I'm not sure if they are playing live anymore or not. Their guitarist (???) is also in another project band, with Roger Miret from AGNOSTIC FRONT, called ALLIGATORS. That band is actually great!

INSTED " Voice Your Opinion "

Lot's of INSTED posts around here! Classic California straightedge hardcore band from the late 80's.


OFF! Full Set From 924 Gilman St! April 2011--

Here's an awesome set from OFF! The new(ish) band fronted by Kieth Morris. Of CIRCLE JERKS & BLACK FLAG fame, duh! Also on the drums is that dude Mario who was in 411 with Dan O'Mahoney, as well as drumming for CLIKITAT IKATOWI. (I think I butchered that band's name! Sorry!) This is a show from April of 2011 at the legendary hardcorepunk club, 924 Gilman St. Ostensibly where GREEN DAY got their start. But I'm drawing a blank....was that club in SF or Oakland? I can't believe I don't remember where the damn club was!!! I read the entire "924 Gilman St." book in one week, several years back while I was in hospital! Well anyhow, check out this sweet video. Damn, Keith's voice! Such a classic hardcorepunk sound. But shit man, cut those fucking dreadlocks! Looks nasty with all the bald spots! ♥Use. Love. All. The. Time♥
