I was reading about Israel trying its spy planes and Iran testing its missiles, both in an attempt to prove their capabilities and seriousness, and as usual, I started going from page to page hitting every interesting link in sight, and then an hour later I was reading about world war II. (I did not know that over 70 million people died at that war!).
After finishing reading about WW2, I saw the word holocaust (whenever I see or hear this word the first thing that comes to mind is the word “lie.” I don’t know why exactly. I think I’ve heard or read somewhere a discussion about whether the holocaust really did take place or not.. How could something this big be a source of confusion to anyone is beyond me.. But the conspiracy theorist in me loves to have an Insider information, I think thats why this info never left my mind) so I clicked on holocaust’s link. I did not know that not only jews were included in the genocide, but also “several million Soviet prisoners of war, along with slave laborers, gay men, Jehovah’s Witnesses, the disabled, and political opponents,” were killed. I ended up reading some quotes that kept me thinking. I’ll share them now and then ask my questions. The quotes are:
1- Hitler dubbed the holocaust as “Final Solution of the Jewish Question.”
2- “Prior to the beginning of World War II, during a speech given on January 30, 1939, Hitler foretold the coming Holocaust of European Jewry when he said:
“Today I will once more be a prophet: If the international Jewish financiers in and outside Europe should succeed in plunging the nations once more into a world war, then the result will not be the Bolshevization of the earth, and thus the victory of Jewry, but the annihilation of the Jewish race in Europe!””
3- “In his diary entry of December 13, 1941, the day after Hitler’s private speech, Joseph Goebbels wrote:
“Regarding the Jewish Question, the Führer is determined to clear the table. He warned the Jews that if they were to cause another world war, it would lead to their own destruction. Those were not empty words. Now the world war has come. The destruction of the Jews must be its necessary consequence. We cannot be sentimental about it. It is not for us to feel sympathy for the Jews. We should have sympathy rather with our own German people. If the German people have to sacrifice 160,000 victims in yet another campaign in the east, then those responsible for this bloody conflict will have to pay for it with their lives.””
Now regarding the 1st quote “Final” solution? what is the problem they’re trying to solve? Were there any other solutions? Why is it expressed in such anger and finality?
The second quote, Why is he threatening the jews? Did they start the 1st world war? are they famous within germany for staring up wars? or is it pure hatred toward them?
The 3rd quote, we now learn, according to this guy’s diary, that WW2 already took place and is still going, that the jews were indeed responsible for it and they must meet their fate; Hitler’s promise of extermination, right? I read about WW2 and did not read anywhere that the jews started the war or were a cause. Have I missed something?
