"How strange! But never mind - it's Nazism, it will pass!"

Isn't there anything we can do to protest at the way the UK is again being dragged into a murderous holocaust by a small bunch of evil men who have no mandate for murder from their fellow-citizens?

I have for weeks conducted a lonely campaign warning of the USUK plans for another war. Mostly all I received were negative comments by some and a silence from everyone else.

We all rightly raise our voices at the terrible crimes being conducted by Blair's infernal Anglo-Saxon alliance in Irak. Yet, despite the fact that it should be obvious to any intelligent news-hound that these criminals are preparing to kill again, we hear of practically no resistance.

Are we forever to treat Britain's international crimes in retrospect? For if that is so then no amount of protestation will be enough to hide the fact that we did nothing to speak up against the killings before they started in an attempt to alert our fellows.

If there are any history books to be written after WWIII it will be remembered that the British did nothing to stop their war-criminals. Instead we became their accomplices. We will come a poor second to all those Germans who had the courage to resist Hitler even in the darkest days.

I do not have words for the sense of shame I feel to be living in a country which so easily allows itself to be dragged into war after war against the world's innocents by a bunch of international criminals.



"And then one fine day the bourgeoisie is awakened by a terrific boomerang effect: the gestapos are busy, the prisons fill up, the torturers standing around the racks invent, refine, discuss."

"People are surprised, they become indignant. They say: "How strange! But never mind - it's Nazism, it will pass!" And they wait, and they hope; and they hide the truth from themselves, that it is barbarism, the supreme barbarism, the crowning barbarism that sums up the daily barbarisms; that it is Nazism, yes, but that before they were its victims, they were its accomplices; that they tolerated that Nazism before it was inflicted on them, that they absolved it, shut their eyes to it, legitimized it, because, until then, it had been applied only to non-European peoples; that they have cultivated that Nazism, that they are responsible for it, and that before engulfing the whole edifice of Western, Christian civilization in its reddened waters, it oozes, seeps and trickles from every crack."
