Our New World

Our world has been changed. We have been changed. Emblazoned in our collective consciousness are indelible, fresh images of unspeakable carnage. We will carry these images with us - shaped in psychic scar tissue - for the rest of our lives. For some of us, September 11 will mark the date we lost an acquaintance, a colleague, or a loved one. For many of us, especially our children, it will mark the date we lost a certain degree of innocence. For all of us, it will mark a dark milestone on the landscape of our memories. My 11-year-old son came home from school that Tuesday with an unsettling bloodlust in his eyes. He had seen the events unfold and was having a purely visceral reaction. Decorum prevents me from recounting all his suggestions for acts of retaliation, but suffice it to say that the U.S. position as a nuclear superpower figured prominently among them. I ... (more)

Fear of the Dark

As I'm pathologically fond of pointing out - I'm a child of a bygone era. Oh, I'm not old enough to remember the time before Sputnik, light bulbs, or the coagulation of the planets from protostellar dust clouds, but I surely do remember GI Joe at 45 caliber, Ray Stevens at 45 RPM, and factory-rolled cigarettes at 45¢ a pack sold to anxious minors desperate to rebel (just like everyone else). It seems ironic to me that this column - gilding the edge of JDJ's ultramodern fabric - deals mostly with dusty memories of my vanished youth. On the other hand, I've heard that I should "write about what I know," so my options are extremely limited. Extremely. I mean, how many cab-driving stories can a person take? (Many would say that one is already too many.) I suppose I could repeatedly spew the first 50 digits of pi - which I happened to memorize as a teenaged proto-geek - ... (more)

German Persecution of Jews in Poland From Cities to Villages – Widespread Terror Nazi soldiers parading through Warsaw after the invasion of Poland 1939 The German invasion and subsequent occupation of Poland triggered the persecution of the Polish and Jewish population.

Warsaw On December 1 1939 the Krakauer Zeitung reported from Warsaw under the heading Polish Policeman murdered by Jews: “A Polish policeman in uniform was shot while on duty on November 13 in Warsaw at Nalewki 9 by a Jewish gang.

World Vision Canada to Stop Erroneous Usage of Palestinian Flag at the Urging of Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center

TORONTO, ONTARIO -- (MARKET WIRE) -- 06/25/08 -- At the insistence of Friends of Simon Wiesenthal Center for Holocaust Studies (FSWC), World Vision Canada has agreed to remove the Palestinian flag from its correspondence with Canadian supporters. In a child sponsorship document shared with FSWC, World Vision Canada included a picture of a Palestinian flag, which it identified as the "Flag of Jerusalem West Bank Gaza". In letters addressed to World Vision president, Dave Toycen, FSWC president and CEO, Avi Benlolo, requested an explanation behind World Vision's rationale for using the flag in this context, given that Jerusalem is the capital of Israel. A response received from World Vision explained that the organization's "use of the Palestinian flag was not intended as a political statement or an indication of taking sides..." and that it would "...remove the Pales...

'Chinese Chess': Thrilling Tale of Nuclear Attack on American Soil Reveals Age-old Game of Strategy in which the Battle Pits Good Against Evil

UNIONVILLE, Ontario, May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Born in 1947, a few years after the end of World War II, author Joseph Pilarski's early memories were of growing up in post-Holocaust Poland. Exposed to many post war documentaries, including actual footage shot by the Nazis in the concentration camps, Pilarski spent many years wondering how and why evil is able to dominate the human existence and why people often seem powerless to stop it. "Chinese Chess: A Novel Threat to America" (published by iUniverse), is part of Pilarski's effort to come to terms with this issue. "I wrote 'Chinese Chess' to further contemplate a nuclear attack on American soil," explains Pilarski, who immigrated to Canada in 1963 at the age of sixteen. "I chose to call the book 'Chinese Chess' after the popular game of strategy that represents a fierce battle between two enemies. In the book, the ... (more)

IBM Ordered Tried for Nazi Complicity

It's almost 60 years since the end of World War II and half the people now alive are only dimly aware that it was even fought, let alone who won, but IBM may finally have to answer for its actions under the Nazis in court. It has been alleged since 2001 on the strength of a book called IBM and the Holocaust that IBM's punch card machines were instrumental in helping the Nazi death squads process their victims and send them to the concentration camps more efficiently. In response, IBM has claimed that its European operations were confiscated by the Nazis and out of its control. Historians, however, have dredged up documents suggesting the company was actively complicit with the SS. Now a Geneva appeals court has cleared the way for representatives of the Gypsies, who the Nazis decimated in the camps, to sue IBM for "moral reparations." Geneva is allegedly where IBM ... (more)
