Good Morning from the Zundelsite:

My ZGram on Dresden, February 13, really struck a chord across the globe. More and more, my more emotional ones get published in hard copy, and word about the Zundelsite outreach keeps spreading.

Below, I offer three such letters. The first was sent in by Kevin Strom from a recent broadcast on "Dissident Voices", an American radio program sponsored by the National Alliance:

". . . More died in Dresden than died in the well-known attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki. More destruction befell Dresden in one day than was inflicted on the whole of Britain during the entire war. And yet you haven't been told.

I urge every one of you to read "The Destruction of Dresden" by David Irving. I assure you, after reading Irving's book, you will never take seriously the Establishment's version of what happened in that war again.

What you ought to take seriously, though, is the fact that the same clique that controlled the traitorous Roosevelt and Churchill governments, whose hatred of our race and civilization and whose alliance with Communism were the real causes of the holocaust of Dresden, still controls our government and our media today.

It is they who are pushing for a disarmed, racially mixed America. It is they who promote the teaching of sodomy to our young children. It is they who are destroying our industrial infrastructure in the name of a global economy. It is they who created the drug subculture and then also the police state agencies which pretend to fight it.

The hour is very late for America and indeed for all of Western civilization. But if patriots will heed our call, then there is no reason for despair. For the enemies of our nation may have power, but their power is based on lies. Won't you help us cut through the chain of lies that holds our people in mental slavery. . . ?"

The second letter came from Louis Beam, a decorated Viet Nam war veteran and now outspoken American activist for a reassessment as to why America has gone to war repeatedly for New World Order interests:

". . . Though I never knew them, though they died months before I was born, I can not help but to still feel the pain of those innocent people of Dresden who suffered so unjustly, unfairly, and totally without fault February 13, 1945.

They died this night. So many of them. Bombs raining down upon their heads like manna from hell - the heads of defenseless women and children for the most part. Babies in their cribs. Sobbing children in their mothers arms. Little girls without blemish, little boys full of anticipation at the excitement life promised them.

The girls became heaps of burnt flesh. The promise was broken by life to the boys. There would be no future for any of them.

Even now, across time, distance, culture, language, and ocean, I hear their cries - raising their helpless, tortured voices for mercy.

No mercy. No relief. Only painful death from planes with United States written on them.

Why did my father's generation do this? How could they kill all these people - then not know about it?

My father, a decorated, battle field commissioned, combat hardened infantry veteran of Roosevelt's army, told me as I lay at his feet as a small child listening that "Hitler was bad but the German people were good."

The Germans were "very smart" - they just had a bad leader, he said.

In 1984 after discovering the horrible truth about Dresden I spoke to my father about it.

I told him more people were killed there in a single night of fire and bomb than in England during the entire war.

He said, "That is a lie."

He refused to believe me. My father was proud of his role as a soldier in defeating Germany. And if soldiers are without responsibilities for their role in history, then he had more right then many to be proud of his many decorations.

I stressed to him that they were innocent people.

He became angry with me.

I asked him why they were killed. "Why did Roosevelt order it done?" I demanded of him.

His anger boiled over and he said I was believing Nazi propaganda.

I said to him, "There are no Nazis, Daddy. You killed them all. There are only people who study history. . . " while pulling an Encyclopedia Americana from the shelf. The encyclopedia, while only admitting to a numerical fraction of the dead at Dresden, was yet sufficient to exceed England's total bombing dead.

"These were refugees fleeing the Communists," I said, becoming angry myself.

He read it and became silent. He read it again while running his fingers along the words carefully touching the numbers as if to make sure they were there and real.

It then dawned on me. He did not know! He had lived through this time, and because of a constant flood of propaganda from America's news media, this horrible war crime and others like it had been kept from him.

I could see this troubled him, for it was from him that I acquired the proclivity of taking up the fight for the downtrodden, those abused unfairly. He was a kind man and would have never knowingly participated in such cruelty.

I swear I will not forget the crime against innocent people at Dresden. I will not forget who is responsible. I will not forget! I am but one small life. One dim light in a world covered with the darkness of cruel machinations by evil men.

But this little light of mine, I will let it shine! For only by doing so do I serve my reason for existence, for life, for eternity.

I read as a young person that "all that is necessary for evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing." Those words became a part of my soul, my life.

There is no reward save knowing you have done that which is right. Love is put to the test when one takes on the suffering of others - when one becomes a voice against evil for those who have none, a target of abuse for doing nothing but standing for justice. And there is hope. Hope that others will make the light that truth is a part of their life, their existence, so that together we become a bright ray for the future.

In distant Dresden park they lie in their graves now. Rest my unknown friends, you downtrodden and despised of this world. Though we could not speak the same language if we stood before each other, though I never knew your names, and while your faces I can only imagine, you are my departed loved ones. My heart beats for yours. My mind remembers for yours. . . "

The third letter came from the Talmudic mindset of the "historian", David Neal Miller, who spoke out prominently in defense of the Goldhagen book, "Hitler's Willing Executioners. "

Back in May 9, 1995, Miller commented as follows on one of the newsgroup lists:

"For the very many dead of Dresden who were committed national socialists, we should feel moved to grim satisfaction: grief for dead Nazis is misplaced, displaced from grief for their innocent victims.

The not-yet-corrupted very young are exceptions, nearly the only exceptions. Better to apprehend the destruction of Dresden as a small moment of exemplary rightness in the massive wrongness of which Dresdeners were co-authors . . .

(W)e children of the victors might be permitted something akin to joy at the thought of Dresdeners and Germans as a whole getting the bombing they so willingly bestowed on others, hence so richly deserved themselves . . . I do not predicate my satisfaction with the bombing of Dresden on a theory of collective guilt, but on the certitude of the *actual* guilt of a near-totality of the German people -- women, grandparents, non-combatants -- in a project of genocide at the time of the bombing: a well earned death sentence indeed."

You be the judge on who spreads hate - and who needs "hate laws" locked in place to keep on spreading hate so as to prevent others from speaking.
