I’ve heard the expression that “truth is the first casualty of war.” In one of David Irving’s great speeches he talks about propaganda. He says he won’t criticize wartime propaganda because in itself it’s not lethal like bombing a city or attacking civilians in a village. Then he says, now that the war is over for forty years, aren’t we entitled to know the truth? His speech was about the holocaust and his conversion to being a “disbeliever.”
It appears that for some people propaganda isn’t only justifiable during wartime, but is part of a never ending strategy to advance their cause, whether it’s convincing the world that an Arab people’s land is actually the property of European Jews or that Germans gassed six million Jews and made soap and lampshades from them.
Paul Eisen recently posted this article on Judaism written by Mark Weber.
Two quotes from the article and what the Jewish religion teaches the Jews.
In the book of Isaiah, we read: “Foreigners shall build up your walls, and their kings shall minister to you … For the nation and kingdom that will not serve you shall perish … The sons of those who oppressed you shall come bending low to you, and all who despised you shall bow down at your feet … Aliens shall stand and feed your flocks, foreigners shall be your plowmen and vinedressers … you shall eat the wealth of the nations, and in their riches you shall glory.”
In the book of Joshua, we read: “I will give you a land on which you had not labored, and cities which you had not built, and you dwell therein; you eat the fruit of vineyards and olive yards which you did not plant.” And in the book of Psalms, God says to the Jews: “Ask of me, and I will make the nations your heritage, and the ends of the earth your possession. You shall break them with a rod of iron, and dash them in pieces like a potter’s wheel.”
