Looking for infomation on the Kruger cemetery…I do CBC pieces…
Krugerdorf, used to be called Krugersdorf. Bella Briansky Kalter wrote a piece (not sure where it appeared), and my article in Canadian Jewish Studies has some information. Good luck!
I really appreciate your teachings on biblical history. I am hoping to see a book on the subject. Shalom!
I can’t figure out if you are a jew or Zionist. I suspect you a Zionist as true Jews are nearly extinct. I am trying desperately to figure out why the idea of Zionism is being pitched as a creation o Herzl? Herzl, himself states in the first three sentences of the preface , in his work Der Judenstaat, that zionism isn’t new. That it has existed, ‘slumbering’ for centuries. I agree. In fact, i am willing to put my life on the lie and make the claim early zionist ideology created Christianity.
And at the moment the zionist have betrayed their faith and are holding the true jews hostage.
Before i leave this earth i am going to right this wrong. This deception must cease. And the only way for the jews/zionist to come out of this tragedy successfully is to acknowledge the whole thing is a myth. I know it’s myth because this idea of convivence with man and god resulting instructions for the whole world to follow which is prejudicial to nonjews is yet another lie.
You may think what you will of me. It matters not to me. What does matter is the perpetuation of lie which harming humanity. I seek truth. The truth exists. The claims of the Zionists who have forced nearly every jew to convert have brought me here. Honorable man don’t lie. Moral men lie all day long.
Why would the creator gift humans with the freedom of conscience, only to send a group of people out on a mission to deny humanity of that gift?
