Former USSR Immigrants Constitute 10.6 Percent of Population.
At the end of 1996, the number of immigrants from the former
Soviet Union and its successor countries, who came to Israel
starting in 1990, neared 610,000 people, or 10.6 percent of
Israel's total population. The figure at the end of 1995 was 9.8
percent. Their average age was older than the country's existing
Jewish population. About 24 percent live in the southern part of
Israel, some 20 percent in the center, and about 17 percent in the
Haifa District. The smallest percentage live in the Jerusalem
7 Million Jews Perished in Holocaust
By SNS News Service
According to secret documentation released to the public, it was
learned that Hitler's decision to implement the "final solution"
came about in 1941, and not 1942 as was believed.
The documents were released by a British intelligence official and
revealed that up to 7 million Jews were killed by the Nazis during
World War 2.
According to the British Organization for Education, Allied forces
were well aware of the Nazis' plan to exterminate the Jews during
the early stages of the war.
Terrorist Boat Blown Up
Arutz-7 News Service
A maritime terrorist attack was averted Tuesday morning when the
crew of an Israel navy ship noticed a fishing-boat approaching
them. When the boat did not respond to warning shots and continued
to speed towards the ship, a rocket was fired. The fishing boat
exploded and capsized, killing the suicide-terrorist on board.
The Amal terrorist organization in Beirut assumed responsibility
for attempting to attack the Israel navy ship. An emergency alert
was declared along the northern beaches. Our correspondent Kobi
Finkler points out that this is the first time in many years that
Arab terrorists have attempted an attack via the sea.
A tragic double-killing occurred Monday in Bat Yam, in which
the Ethiopian mother of an autistic child choked her daughter and
then committed suicide.
Evidence shows the mother, Almalito Itzak, planned the killing in
advance, because of threats by the national medical service that
they would suspend treatment of her 11-year-old daughter as long as
she refused to institutionalize the girl. Medical authorities have
denied the charge.
The Turner Diaries: Murder by the Book
By Greg Flakus (VOA-Los Angeles)
The trial of Oklahoma City bomb defendant Timothy McVeigh in Denver
has focused attention once again on a novel which has been the
inspiration for a number of radical antigovernment groups and
individuals over the past 20 years.
"The Turner Diaries" is a work of fiction that federal authorities
say has also been an inspiration for murder.
In the twisted world portrayed by author Andrew MacDonald in "The
Turner Diaries," the United States is a nation ruled by an
authoritarian cabal of Jews, blacks and big-government bureaucrats.
The heroes are members of an underground militia-type group called
"The Organization," who use guerrilla warfare and outright
terrorism to combat the system.
One of the principal actions portrayed is the use of an ammonium
nitrate and fuel oil bomb to blow up the FBI building in
Washington. A copy of "The Turner Diaries" was found in the trunk
of McVeigh's car when he was arrested near Perry, Okla. on April
19, 1995, a short time after a similar bomb destroyed the Alfred
P. Murrah Federal Building in Oklahoma City. Prosecutors have
described the book as "a blueprint" for the crime.
The current publisher of "The Turner Diaries," New York-based
Barricade books, cites the Constitution's First Amendment guarantee
of freedom of the press in defending its publication of the
hate-filled novel. But Barricade publicity director Lisa Beck goes
"We, as the publishers, believe it is more than a First Amendment
issue, that there is an old saying, "know thy enemy." Every
American has a right to know what their beliefs are and it is
more dangerous not to know than it is to know and that is what we
The Barricade edition of "The Turner Diaries" contains an
introduction by publisher Lyle Stuart that serves as a disclaimer.
In it he defends the publication of the book by saying "We have a
right to know what the enemy is thinking." Without disclosing any
figures, Beck says the book's sales are brisk.
"I think many people in the general population are buying it now
because they are interested in reading what this is all about.
These people are very dangerous. They are not just out in the
desert amongst themselves. They pose a real threat to American
society and people have a right to read about that and know what
they are facing."
"The Turner Diaries" is not a mainstream book of general interest
and appeal. It can be found in some large bookstores, but store
owners say they have sold most copies to journalists or to people
with an interest in the McVeigh trial. In a free society, the book
is available to everyone, even those who may find in it inspiration
to attack the very system of government that has guaranteed their
right to read it.
