article imageOp-Ed: 'Mein Kampf' and Auschwitz in the London 'Jewish News'

By Alexander Baron     Dec 16, 2011 in World
The front page of 'the jewish news' issue No 719 expresses outrage at the use of the word Auschwitz and the sale of 'Mein Kampf'. Perhaps people should do a bit of research before they exhibit righteous indignation.
These are two entirely different stories from the front page of the jewish news; the first relates to the MP Zac Goldsmith; the second to Richard Branson's Virgin Megastore. Goldsmith was engaged in a debate which included Hugh Grant and Steve Coogan, both of whom have recently tesfied to the Leveson Inquiry. Like many prominent people, Zac Goldsmith is none too fond of some of the antics of the gutter press, and suggested that if a business is engaged in immoral or unethical behaviour, that it should be closed down. Newspapers though generate a lot of employment, but “No one said that Auschwitz should have been kept open just because it created jobs”. Oh dear, shabboz goy Margaret Hodge was not amused, among others.
Meanwhile, over in Qatar, shoppers were said to be complaining that the Virgin Megastore was flogging copies of Mein Kampf. A lady named Anna Peregrini fired off an e-mail to the company but received no response, apparently totally unaware that the Virgin response to any customer complaint is typically no response. She has now received one; curious isn't it that this notorious book is available in Arabic, after all, didn't Adolf Hitler want to breed a race of blue-haired, blond-eyed supermen to conquer the world? Anyone who believes that probably also believes Linda Carty is innocent.
Leaving aside the little fact that this notorious book is freely available all over the Internet, for many years profits from its sales went to first the Red Cross (from a serialisation) and thereafter to a Jewish charity, which sounds an admirable compromise, as long as none of it went to the ADL.
There are currently not a few copies being offered for sale on Ebay, and their prices are by no means modest.
As for Mr Goldsmith's comment, some have made even sillier comments, like Gilbert Frankau who actually suggested that a war would be a splendid idea if it created jobs. Presumably he had never heard of the broken window fallacy.
The Eton-educated Mr Frankau was also a great admirer of the Führer and even wrote an article As a Jew I Am Not Against Hitler for the Daily Express shortly after he came to power. Kind of makes Zac Goldsmith sound tame, doesn't he? In any case, the MP and environmentalist has explained himself on his blog, and obviously has more important things to concern himself with, like saving what is left of this planet for future generations, Jew and Gentile.
