TWO CATHOLIC CONGRESS-CRITTERS HAVE INTRODUCED AN UNNECESSARY "ELIE WIESEL" SPENDING BILL just as the Trump administration is seeking to sharply trim the federal budget!

The two bleeding heart Catholics (Jewish water-carriers, both) – Reps. Joe Crowley, D-N.Y., and Ann Wagner R-Mo – introduced “The Elie Wiesel Genocide and Atrocities Prevention Act of 2017” into the House of Representatives on June 22. It was previously introduced into the Senate by Ben Cardin, D-Maryland on May 17, 2017. Cardin is a Jew and a committed Liberal.

What is the purpose of this legislation?

One fact proves more than any other that “Night” is a work of fiction

Left: Shlomo Wiesel in 1942. Right: Elie Wiesel in 1943-44. Father and son were not so far apart in age.


By Carolyn Yeager

Elie Wiesel wrote two ‘official’ accounts of his 1944-45 concentration camp experience: his novel Night (1958) and his official autobiography (Part One), All Rivers Run to the Sea (1995). Thirty-seven years separate these two publications.

Three articles written by me in 2011 (and here) and 2012 contain information that demonstrate conclusively that Night is not a true account of the experience Wiesel may have had with his family at Auschwitz-Birkenau in 1944. Night is written for “effect” and to be a gripping father-son drama that rises to the standards of a literary work of art. Night cannot, therefore, be called Wiesel’s testimony -- a claim he made on several occasions. [...]

The main evidence I want to put up front is the agreed upon birth date of Elie’s grandmother Nisel Bash Wiesel, mother of Shlomo and Mendel and four daughters. In 1957, Yaakov Fishkovitz filled out a Yad Vashem Page of Testimony (PoT) for his aunt Nisel, stating she was born in 1881 in Chust, Romania and died at Auschwitz in 1944.

The Hill is a purveyor of propaganda, not news

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2017-05-14 16:05

 

Should The Hill be running articles featuring hate-speech from questionable characters like Chabad Lubavitch rebbe Shmuley Boteach (above)? When is enough enough?


By Carolyn Yeager

THE HILL IS A LONGTIME WASHINGTON FIXTURE WHICH FIRST APPEARED AS A NEWSPAPER in 1994, published by Jerry Finkelstein, now owned by his son Jimmy Finkelstein.  Now online as well as in print, it has specialized in reporting about the doings of Congress.

Having updated its style a few times, The Hill's current control by Zionist forces has become clear as day. This is nothing out of the ordinary for the American news media, of course, but for some reason I had naively thought of The Hill as more independent. Not so, The definite anti-Trump slant has just been too obvious since Trump was actually elected as president.

Must watch: Vincent Reynouard challenges British authorities over new UK Holocaust museum

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2017-02-26 15:11

This is the site given up to British Jews for the new museum - none other than Victoria Garden in front of the Victoria Tower, a part of Westminster Palace, the most iconic piece of architecture in all London. Imagine the power exerted for this to happen!


UK Holocaust Memorial Museum: I challenge the British Authorities
 
Next year, a Holocaust Museum Memorial will be built in the heart of London, near the Parliament. In this video, a French revisionist, Vincent Reynouard, challenges the British authorities. He asks:
   1) for the Memorial's designer to provide proof, a single element of proof that confirms the existence of "gas chambers" at Auschwitz, Majdanek, Treblinka, Sobibor or Belzec.
   2) for a public debate between revisionists and historians to discuss the value of this evidence.

How Wiesel’s “tattoo” looks from where I’m sitting

Published by carolyn on Fri, 2016-07-15 16:25

Enlarged close-up of Elie Wiesel’s arms in a 2006 photograph by Eyal Toueg, first published by Haaretz on July 9th. (see previous article)


by Carolyn Yeager

It’s pretty pathetic to be confronted with a picture like the above, and expected to acknowledge that it is Elie Wiesel’s Auschwitz tattoo that I have been asking to see for six years now. Once again, the best suggestion I have for magnifying it is to click on it to get the image page, then hit the plus key up to 8 times while holding down the Ctrl key. The image stays sharp while being greatly enlarged. What do you see? I invite all the amateur, and maybe professional sleuths out there to do their thing.

Wiesel has been hiding this faded-out, so-far-undecipherable spot on his arm for 70 years, and now that he’s safely buried and completely inaccessible, Haaretz, the Israeli newspaper that broke the story of Wiesel’s death, is beginning to reveal that arm. At least, that’s how it looks from where I’m sitting. Continue reading at Elie Wiesel Cons The World

Elie Wiesel private funeral took place Sunday morning

Elie Wiesel was buried Sunday. Seems so fast, but is in keeping with the Jewish tradition of burying a person with expediency, according to the New York Times.

A hearse was seen outside the Orthodox Jewish synagogue and mourners were arriving around 10 a.m. Among them was former national director of the Anti-Defamation League Abraham Foxman, as reported by CBS.

From the NYTimes –

The funeral was a gathering of his family and close friends, held on Sunday at a synagogue on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Inside the Orthodox Fifth Avenue Synagogue, about 100 people attended the ceremony. In a wheelchair, his widow, Marion, listened as Mr. Wiesel was eulogized by his son Elisha, a partner at Goldman Sachs. A young grandson, Elijah, also spoke about his grandfather.

Young holocaust believer defends Elie Wiesel’s tattoo and his “novels”

Published by carolyn on Wed, 2016-06-01 23:13

Elie Wiesel shows his ugly side in an unguarded moment during a “Holocaust Remembrance Day” ceremony at the U.S. Capitol Rotunda in 2009.


By Carolyn Yeager

TIFFANY YEP, LINKING TO a Google page of that name, wrote a comment to my article “Elie admits he doesn’t have the tattoo A7713.” I thought it called for more attention than a comment usually gets so I’ve made an article out of it. Tiffany is apparently in high school, and I can say the generation gap between us is pretty vast since I don’t understand her Google page at all. (I’m sure I’m not supposed to.)  The comment, however, is easy to understand and I’ve seen quite a few like it. However Tiffany, being pretty bright, adds a slight twist. She says that Elie Wiesel’s version of what took place in the concentration camps, even if he made it all up, is still more valuable as a teaching aid than are more forgiving stories because he portrays the “horror” the Jews felt. I noticed on Yep’s Photo page a couple of holocaust horror pictures – one a very dishonest composite with Dr. Mengele, taken from an exhibit. Here’s her comment to me, all packed into one paragraph: Please continue reading at Elie Wiesel Cons The World

Wiesel archivist finds another version of “Night” – now there are six!

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2016-05-08 16:26

Elie Wiesel, right, in his office at Boston University with his Israeli editor and archivist, Joel Rappel, who announced the discovery of a Hebrew version of “Night” in an exclusive report to Haaretz.

By Carolyn Yeager

The controversy about the origins of “Night” is given more fuel by the recent announcement of Dr. Joel Rappel that he found a 150-page, handwritten document in Hebrew in the unsorted mass of Elie Wiesel’s personal papers.

I wrote about Yoel Rappel’s relationship with Elie Wiesel two years ago. Wiesel selected this Israeli journalist, editor and media expert he has known for decades to have control over how his writings and life story will be presented to the public – meaning what will be presented and what withheld. While Boston University is going to house the Wiesel Archive, it is not in control of it. Wiesel brought Dr. Rappel to Boston, put him on the payroll as “visiting scholar”, then put him in in charge of the Wiesel archive project.

I will go into some detail about this “newly discovered document” but first I want to list the six (oh, that number always comes up, doesn’t it?) versions of Night. They are:

1) 1954 – The original Yiddish manuscript, 862 typed pages, (No one has ever seen this, but more on that later)

2) 1955 – The edited and published Yiddish Un di velt hot geshvign – 245 book pages (in Hebrew characters, not our alphabet)

3) 1958 – La Nuit, original French – about 120 pages

4) 1960 – Night in English, Stella Rodway translation from French – 107 pages

5) 2006 – Night in English, Marion Wiesel new translation with numerous changes – 112 pages

6) late 1950’s, discovered in 2016 – Night in Hebrew, handwritten by Elie Wiesel – 150 pages (unfinished? – no one has seen this one either) Continue reading at Elie Wiesel Cons The World

“Child survivor” Paul Argiewicz and the missing five years

Published by carolyn on Sun, 2016-04-17 11:06

This is a picture of Paul Argiewicz used by the Wisconsin Veterans Museum but with no description. Considering he’s wearing a US Army cap, it’s probably from after 1950, which would make him over 25 years of age.

By Carolyn Yeager

Remember Paul Argiewicz? He's the guy I wrote about here because it's widely claimed he's in the Famous Buchenwald Liberation Photo, which he is not. But there are a lot of things wrong with the Paul Argiewicz story – claiming he is in that photo is just one of them.

Christine Miller has observed that being forced to believe holocaust survivor's stories has made Western man irrational. Paul's story is as irrational as any, especially when it comes to the simple act of adding together two-digit numbers. So let's start there.

Paul's date of birth is always given as Aug. 6, 1925 in Bielsko, Poland. He grew up using his mother's name, Argiewicz, because his parents were not formally or officially married. The family included two older sisters. He told interviewers that he only went three and a half years to grade school. He was arrested in 1941 by his own reckoning, when he would have been 16 years old.

However, his story, wherever you look either online or in the book about him, states that he was age 11 at the time of his arrest by the Nazis, and in his own obituary written or approved by his family it says “he was arrested at age 10 by the SS for stealing bread for his starving family in the Jewish ghetto.” [The 'stealing bread for starving family' part is obviously fiction, but Paul was known as an emotional person who cried easily and liked to create as much emotional reaction in his listeners as possible.] Continue reading at Elie Wiesel Cons The World

Sen. Ted Cruz lauds Elie Wiesel as a moral giant in AIPAC speech

Published by carolyn on Tue, 2016-03-22 14:16

U.S. Sen. Ted Cruz (R-Tex.) listens to Elie Wiesel at a Senate roundtable discussion last year. Cruz said the nuclear talks with Iran were reminiscent of Western appeasement of Hitler.

CURRENTLY RUNNING for the Republican nomination for President of the United States, Cruz spoke on Monday, March 21 to the annual American-Israel Public Affairs Committee, Washington's largest lobbying group and an unregistered agent of the Israeli government in the U.S.

His words were described as those he has spoken many times before, but naturally what stood out to me was what he said about Elie Wiesel.

At 13:40 into his speech he said:

A year ago, I was honored to join the great Elie Wiesel on a panel discussion in the Senate about this disastrous Iranian deal. Not a single democrat was willing to join Elie Wiesel … to sit alongside someone who witnessed first hand the horrors of the “Holocaust,” who brings a moral weight and gravity second to none, was both powerful and humbling. And I am convinced, after this election, the American people will stand and say together “Never Againmeans never again. Please continue reading at Elie Wiesel Cons The World
