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 District.

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.

Ethiopian Murder-Suicide

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 further.

"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 stand by."

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.
