Dear Fellow Patriot!
Zundel In Germany:
For Zundel updates please visit the above website!
To submit news, information, etc. about Ernst Zundel,
This will permanently appear on every Patriot Letter.
I will pass on all reports immediately to the Adelaide
Institute, and have asked the German activists to do
the same, to avoid possible duplication. The Adelaide
Institute will be your information center: Zundel in
Germany. No time for editing. We will also consider
all e-mails for publication, unless otherwise noted.
Hurray! We have a volunteer who will translate small
pieces from German into English and vice versa. Thank
The ball is rolling and now, let the experts play.
However, an important issue needs to be addressed.
Freedom of speech in Germany is completely differently
Insults, name-calling, and derogatory remarks of
public officials and dignitaries are criminal
offenses. Character defamation is also sticky. The
German people do not know the words that Americans use
to cuss each other out. So, whenever you write to
Ernst Zundel or to authorities, do it in a
business-like manner. Polite and respectful. Leave the
war of words to the experts. It will only harm Ernst
Zundel. As we say: Andere Laender, andere Sitten
(Other countries, other customs).
Another very important issue is to keep the hard-core
of white supremacist away from contacting Ernst
Zundel. The Canadian authorities are dilatants
compared to the German authorities. Every e-mail,
every postal mail, will be scrutinized. I urge all
activists and leaders to encourage their members to
refrain from the usual dribble.
For those - and you know who you are - who have
compared yourself to Ernst Zundel, please stop. For
the German authorities, you are nothing but common
criminals who have actually been charged with a real
crime and have been found guilty. In Germany, you will
become a serious liability to Ernst Zundel. It might
be a strange thing, but in Germany, verbal discourses
are much more civil than in the U.S.
You'll find Ernst's mailing address and other
important facts at the Adelaide Institute.
THE FRIENDS YOU KEEP
By Walter F. Mueller
This will fit just perfectly into the entire Ernst
Zundel in Germany issue:
"Judge in hiding after spouse, mother slain,"
was yesterday's headline in The Sacramento Bee. Matt
Hale, again in the news, dragging everyone down with
It is of no interest to me whether or not this poor
excuse of a human being had anything to do with these
murders. My interests lay in making clear - again -
that the Patriot Letter, as well as Community News,
distance themselves from these cowardly and heinous
crimes. Matt Hale is nothing but a scumbag, and I hope
they will lock him up for the rest of his life.
Actually, that's not true, I prefer the electric
Here is the background: At the beginning of the week,
Judge Joan Humphrey-Lefkow found her husband and
89-year old mother murdered in the basement of her
house. Judge Lefkow is the same judge that presided
over the trial of Matt Hale, where he was found guilty
of hiring an assassin to kill another judge, because
she was married to a Jew.
Judge Lefkow was about to sentence Lefkow in a few
weeks. Now, whatever happened and who did it is not
clear yet. One has to admit that it is a strange
coincidence and it fits the sick mind of Matt Hale.
However, what we do know is that many of the white
national movement websites have condoned and even
celebrated the brutal murder of the Judge's family.
Other white supremacist websites have already spun
their conspiracy web, calling it a "set up."
In the New York Times coverage, the newspaper quotes
white supremacist Billy Roper, who compares the murder
of the Judges family to the Weaver killings at Ruby
"Now they must feel like we felt."
I am not sure what the asshole meant, it could be that
he was misquoted. I am pretty sure that Randy Weaver
would object to that.
Hal Turner, radio talk show host, already predicts
that Homeland Security and the FBI will keep a tight
ring around anyone that is affiliated with Matt Hale.
I kind of agree, because I have checked many websites,
and it is a tragedy on how so many activists associate
themselves with Matt Hale. Matt Hale, former leader of
a far-right Christian extreme group, which calls
itself the "World Church of the Creator" is the scum
of scum. Hale and the likes of him are the thorn in
our flesh and the sooner it is removed, the better.
Now imagine that some even compare him to Ernst
Zundel. Now that's what Ernst needs in Germany! Let me
remind you that killing the family of a federal judge
in the U.S. is not going to be taken lightly. Add the
new weapon that the traditional enemy has now. They
will use it against us, just like they used the
Oklahoma City bombing.
No matter what race or religion one has, it is this
writer's opinion that killing innocent people to make
a point is the pure definition of terrorism.
Forget Political Labels: They Mean Nothing
By Chuck Baldwin
March 4, 2005
Conservative. Liberal. Moderate. Political labels are
thrown around constantly in an attempt to define a
person's ideology. The problem is, political labels
are absolutely meaningless today. Absolutely
The reality of the situation is, neither conservatives
nor liberals differ on many salient issues. The major
beef between them has much more to do with who wields
power and very little to do with ideology. Both
conservatives and liberals merely use ideology as a
ruse to dupe various constituencies. There is very
little disagreement on policy.
Furthermore, where policy disagreements arise, there
is little advantage between conservatives and liberals
as to which group's policy is best for the country.
For the most part, each is as often wrong (or right)
as the other.
Let me provide a few examples. Let's start with areas
where conservatives and liberals are for the most part
*Neither conservatives nor liberals believe in limited
government. Both groups excel in spending taxpayers'
money. Liberals want to tax and spend, while
conservatives want to borrow and spend. But both want
to spend. In fact, when it comes to federal spending,
conservatives have proven themselves to be even more
proficient than liberals.
*Neither conservatives nor liberals give a hoot about
saving the lives of unborn babies. Both groups say
they find abortion repulsive, etc., but neither group
wants to protect the lives of unborn children from the
abortionist's scalpel or from abortifacients such as
Liberals openly endorse "a woman's right to choose"
(to kill her baby), but conservatives such as
President and Mrs. George W. Bush also maintain that
Roe v Wade (the Supreme Court decision that gave
federal sanction to abortion on demand) should NOT be
overturned. People need to realize that it has been
the Republican Party, not the Democratic Party, that
has controlled the U. S. Supreme Court from 1973 (the
year Roe became law) until the present.
*Both conservatives and liberals in Washington, D.C.,
have forced American culture and business to
*Neither conservatives nor liberals care a flip about
obeying the U.S. constitution. Both conservatives and
liberals routinely disregard the Constitution without
hesitation and without regret. Being a conservative or
liberal means nothing when it comes to fidelity to the
*Both conservatives and liberals offer no resistance
to a growing international New World Order. Both
groups seem perfectly willing to sacrifice the
independence and sovereignty of the United States to
the United Nations and other multinational
*Immigration. Both conservatives and liberals support
the continuation of allowing massive numbers of
illegal aliens to work and reside in this country. In
fact, on this subject, President Bush's policy is more
egregiously in error than any policy put forward by
former liberal presidents, including those of Bill
President Bush wants to legalize illegal aliens by
granting them "guest worker" status. This amnesty
program is especially disconcerting when one factors
in the need to secure America from potential
terrorists. How conservatives can support a policy
which sends American troops half way around the world
to fight terrorism while at the same time throwing
open the doors of illegal immigration allowing any and
all potential terrorists to infiltrate our own land is
the height of absurdity!
The list goes on almost without end. Now, let's look
at a few areas where conservatives and liberals seem
to differ. First, here is where conservatives have it
*Gun control. For the most part, conservatives seem to
favor the Constitutional right of American citizens to
defend themselves. In all likelihood, it is this issue
that is most responsible for the Democrats losing
control of the White House and Congress. That is why,
for the most part, liberals are silent or even support
the Second Amendment now. But it wasn't ideology that
changed them. It was the fact that since gun control
advocates don't fare well at the polls these days,
liberals have decided to drop (for the mean time) the
*The right of the American people to publicly
acknowledge God. For the most part, conservatives have
at least a rudimentary understanding of America's
Christian heritage and support the public recognition
I need to put a caveat here and admit that when it
comes to conservatives in Washington, D.C., having the
courage of their convictions on this point, there is
anything but a stellar record. For example, what good
did it do Alabama Chief Justice Roy Moore that there
was a conservative Republican governor or a
conservative Republican attorney general in Alabama?
What good did it do him that there was a conservative
Republican in the White House or a conservative
Republican attorney general in Washington? What good
did it do him that many, if not most of the churches
in Alabama are led and attended by conservative
Christians? The answer: it did him no good whatsoever.
It was conservative Republicans, through either their
inaction or collaboration with liberals, that hung
Judge Moore out to dry!
*In general, conservatives have it right about the
need for a strong national defense.
Now, here are a few issues where liberals have it
*Liberals more often than not rightly oppose the
numerous "free trade" agreements that are destroying
America's manufacturing industries and transferring
jobs (and national sovereignty) overseas.
On the subject of free trade, Democrats and trade
unions are right more often than not. Conservatives
should be ashamed of themselves for bowing to these
multinational and supranational organizations who, for
the love of money, are willing to lead America into
the sewer of internationalism.
A caveat on this subject: liberals should step up to
the plate and stop excusing Democratic leaders when
they betray this issue. Can anyone say, "Bill
Clinton"? You will remember that it was Bill Clinton
along with then Senate Majority Leader Bob Dole who
the middle of the night, no less) gave us NAFTA and
*Liberals are the ones who are leading the fight
against the erosion of Constitutional protections of
our individual liberties. Again, conservatives should
be ashamed of themselves! By supporting the Patriot
Act, the Department of Homeland Security, the creation
of a new National Intelligence Director, etc.,
conservatives are quickly morphing into little
For a legal review of the Patriot Act and how it is
destroying our liberties, go to my web site at:
article was written by my youngest son who is an
I applaud liberals for having the guts to oppose
President Bush's attempts to eviscerate our liberties
under the rubric of "fighting terrorism." It is
shameful that conservatives are ignoring Bush's
attacks against the Constitution!
*The war in Iraq. Liberals are right to oppose the war
in Iraq. The war is unconstitutional and without
merit. As everyone now knows, the Bush administration
repeatedly lied to the American people regarding the
justification for this war. Beyond that, it appears
that President Bush intends to expand the war into
Syria and Iran.
America now seems determined to ignore the sagacious
words of John Quincy Adams who in repeating America's
founding policy regarding foreign intervention said,
"America goes not abroad seeking monsters to destroy."
However, that is exactly what George W. Bush and
today's conservatives are doing.
As you can readily see, political labels mean nothing.
On the crucial issues of our day, both conservatives
and liberals are equally culpable in supporting bad
policies, and conservatives and liberals are wrong as
much as they are right regarding policies in which
they differ. It is becoming extremely important that
the American people begin looking past political
labels and determine to support or oppose each policy
(regardless of which group is promoting it) based
solely on its merit. If we don't begin doing this
soon, both conservatives and liberals in Washington,
D.C., will destroy what is left of this great

Chapter 1 [HTML] or [PDF format]
This masterwork of interpretative history begins with
a bold declaration: The Modern Age is the Jewish
Age--and we are all, to varying degrees, Jews.
The assertion is, of course, metaphorical. But it
underscores Yuri Slezkine's provocative thesis. Not
only have Jews adapted better than many other groups
to living in the modern world, they have become the
premiere symbol and standard of modern life
Slezkine argues that the Jews were, in effect, among
the world's first free agents. They traditionally
belonged to a social and anthropological category
known as "service nomads," an outsider group
specializing in the delivery of goods and services.
Their role, Slezkine argues, was part of a broader
division of human labor between what he calls
Since the dawning of the Modern Age, Mercurians have
taken center stage. In fact, Slezkine argues,
modernity is all about Apollonians becoming
Mercurians--urban, mobile, literate, articulate,
intellectually intricate, physically fastidious, and
occupationally flexible. Since no group has been more
adept at Mercurianism than the Jews, he contends,
these exemplary ancients are now model moderns.
The book concentrates on the drama of the Russian
Jews, including √©migr√©s and their offspring in
America, Palestine, and the Soviet Union. But Slezkine
has as much to say about the many faces of
modernity--nationalism, socialism, capitalism, and
liberalism--as he does about Jewry. Marxism and
Freudianism, for example, sprang largely from the
Jewish predicament, Slezkine notes, and both Soviet
Bolshevism and American liberalism were affected in
fundamental ways by the Jewish exodus from the Pale of
Rich in its insight, sweeping in its chronology, and
fearless in its analysis, this
sure-to-be-controversial work is an important
contribution not only to Jewish and Russian history
but to the history of Europe and America as well.
Yuri Slezkine is Professor of History at the
University of California, Berkeley. He is the author
of Arctic Mirrors: Russia and the Small Peoples of the
North and coeditor of In the Shadow of Revolution:
Life Stories of Russian Women from 1917 to the Second
World War (Princeton).
"One of the most innovative and intellectually
stimulating books in Jewish studies in years. . . .
[An] idiosyncratic, fascinating and at times
marvelously infuriating study of the evolution of
Jewish cultural and political sensibility in the 20th
century. . . . Nearly every page of Slezkine's
exegesis presents fascinating arguments or
"Yuri Slezkine has written an extraordinary book with
continual surprises. A landmark work."--Ronald Suny,
University of Chicago
"I can think of few works that match the conceptual
range, polemical sharpness, and sheer √©lan of The
Jewish Century. An extraordinary book: analytically
acute, lyrical, witty, and disturbing all at
once."--Benjamin Nathans, author of Beyond the Pale:
The Jewish Encounter with Late Imperial Russia
"Yuri Slezkine's book is at the same time very
personal and very erudite. A blend of political and
cultural history at its best, it is a splendid work,
beautifully written. A true accomplishment by a master
historian."--Jan T. Gross, author of Neighbors
"Once every few decades, a book forces a reevaluation
of basic assumptions in a field. Yuri Slezkine's
passionate and brilliant tour de force not only
challenges received wisdom about Russian and Soviet
Jews, but just as provocatively overturns the
uniqueness that many ascribe to Jewish history
altogether. The Jewish Century is a work sure to spark
heated debate not only about the Jews, but also about
what it means to be modern."--David Biale, editor,
Cultures of the Jews: A New History
"The Jewish Century is an extraordinarily stimulating
and ambitious piece of work that invites debate and
controversy. Slezkine's account is subtle, beautifully
written, and very moving; it combines humor, irony,
and understated passion."--Tim McDaniel, author of The
Agony of the Russian Idea (Princeton)

middle-class jobs, or for that matter, any (real)
