Here come two ZGrams back to back in response to a fairly common question I get at the Zundelsite: "Why is there such an overload of Holocaustomania these days?"
"I don't know about Europe, or even Canada, but the whole Holocaust industry here in America has (apparently) sprung up only in the last five years. I don't remember reading a peep about the Holocaust (or events therein) in the 60's, 70's, 80's or even at the turn of the 90's. (I understand that the term came from a seventies novel.)
"Does anybody have a good theory on the timing of all this? Did it spring from that Swiss clerk who allegedly found some long lost records, or what?"
Answer from one of my cyber friends:
The WJC (World Jewish Congress) went into hiding after WWII to negate any assertions that it declared war on Nazi Germany. It was good to appear powerless when powerful. The greatest deceit of the devil was to convince people he did not exist.
Edgar Bronfman of the Seagrams liquor fortune took it over in 1995 or so to "revitalize" it. His platform was to make indemnity claims. Obviously he has done what he promised so he is your run of the mill politician.
As his family has debts to call in in the US back from Prohibition days he was able to bring in the US ruling class - including the Kennedys who were one of his major partners.
The very idea of a world Jewish organization was "antisemitic" for decades. Now that it is bright and shining it is antisemitic to say it is an instigator. Such is the power of money.
The trick of being rich is not to avoid using it but to avoid being punished for not spreading it around politicians. Ask Bill Gates. Play the game or lose.
I can assure you from as deeply as my understanding of physical science (is) that at one time in his life someone implied to Bill Gates that his money had to become part of the system. And I can assure you he ignored it or thought he was rich enough to be above it. And that is why there is an antitrust action against him.
Edgar Bronfmann put his money into the system. His revitalization would have gotten nowhere if US politicians were not bought. His product line was not spreading money in the US as he is a Canadian - and Canadian corruption is as legendary as it is unspeakable.
So now the moribund family has secure financial connections with the US Congress and it has a supported agenda and he draws an additional salary and perks as president of the WJC. And he did a phoenix arising from the ashes for the WJC. He gets the proportionately increasing salary for the job of President and all the rest of the honoraria.
It is all a scumbag operation, every example of it.
Follow the money.
