World War 2, Eisenhower, and the Holocaust

General Eisenhower Warned Us 

The following is an excerpt of an article written by Spanish
writer Sebastian Vilar Rodriguez and published in a Spanish
newspaper on Jan. 15, 2008. It doesn't take much imagination to
extrapolate the message to the rest of Europe - and possibly to the rest of the world.

Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez article part 2: Truth about the Jewish Holocaust
ALL EUROPEAN LIFE DIED IN AUSCHWITZ By Sebastian Vilar Rodrigez , Part 2

What a terrible mistake was made by miserable Europe .

General Eisenhower Warned Us

It is a matter of history that when
the Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces, General
Dwight Eisenhower, found the victims of the death camps
he ordered all possible photographs to be taken, and for the
German people from surrounding villages to be ushered through the
camps and even made to bury the dead.

He did this because he said in words to this effect:

'Get it all on record now - get the films - get the witnesses -
because somewhere down the road of history some bastard will get
up and say that this never happened'
Recently, the UK debated whether to remove The Holocaust from
its school curriculum because it 'offends' the Muslim population
which claims it never occurred. It is not removed as yet.
However, this is a frightening portent of the fear that is gripping
the world and how easily each country is giving into it.

It is now more than 60 years after  World War 2 in Europe
ended. This was written as a memorial,
in memory of the 6 million Jews, 20 million Russians, 10
million Christians, and 1,900 Catholic priests who were 'murdered,
raped, burned, starved, beaten, experimented on and humiliated'
while the German people looked the other way.

 Now, more than ever, with Iran, among others, claiming the
Holocaust to be 'a myth,' it is imperative to make sure the world
never forgets.

How many years will it be before the attack on the World Trade Center
'NEVER HAPPENED' because it offends some Muslim in the United
States ?

Dwight D. Eisenhower

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Eisenhower's two terms were peaceful ones for the most part and saw considerable economic prosperity. Eisenhower is now often ranked as one of the top ten U.S. Presidents.

Dwight David "Ike" Eisenhower October 14, 1890 – March 28, 1969) was the 34th President of the United States from 1953 until 1961. He had previously been a five-star general in the United States Army during World War II, and served as Supreme Commander of the Allied Forces in Europe; he had responsibility for planning and supervising the invasion of North Africa in Operation Torch in 1942–43 and the successful invasion of France and Germany in 1944–45, from the Western Front. In 1951, he became the first supreme commander of NATO.[2]

Eisenhower was of Pennsylvania Dutch ancestry, and was reared in a large family in Kansas, by parents with a robust work ethic and religious background. As one of six sons, he was conditioned by a competitive atmosphere which instilled self-reliance. He attended and graduated from West Point, and later was married with two sons. After World War II Eisenhower served as Chief of Staff under President Harry S. Truman, then assumed the post of President at Columbia University.[3]

Eisenhower entered the 1952 presidential race as a Republican, to counter the non-interventionism of Senator Robert A. Taft, and to crusade against "Communism, Korea and corruption". He won by a landslide, defeating Democrat Adlai Stevenson and ending two decades of the New Deal Coalition. In the first year of his presidency Eisenhower deposed the leader of Iran in the 1953 Iranian coup d'etat, and used nuclear threats to conclude the Korean War with China. His New Look policy of nuclear deterrence gave priority to inexpensive nuclear weapons while reducing the funding for conventional military forces; the goal was to keep pressure on the Soviet Union and reduce federal deficits. In 1954 Eisenhower first articulated the domino theory in his description of the threat presented by the spread of communism. The Congress agreed to his request in 1955 for the Formosa Resolution, which enabled him to prevent Chinese communist aggression against Chinese nationalists and established U.S. policy of defending Taiwan. When the Soviets launched Sputnik in 1957 he had to play catchup in the space race. Eisenhower forced Israel, the UK and France to end their invasion of Egypt during the Suez Crisis of 1956. In 1958 he sent 15,000 US troops to Lebanon to prevent the pro-Western government from falling to a Nasser-inspired revolution. Near the end of his term, his efforts to set up a summit meeting with the Soviets collapsed because of the U-2 incident when an American spy plane was shot down over Russia and its pilot captured.[4]

On the domestic front, he covertly opposed Joseph McCarthy but contributed to the end of McCarthyism by openly invoking the modern expanded version of executive privilege. He otherwise left most political activity to his Vice President, Richard Nixon. He was a moderate conservative who continued New Deal agencies, expanded Social Security and launched the Interstate Highway System. He sent federal troops to Little Rock, Arkansas, for the first time since Reconstruction to enforce federal court orders to desegregate public schools, and signed civil rights legislation in 1957 and 1960 to protect the right to vote. He implemented desegregation of the armed forces in two years, and made five appointments to the Supreme Court. He was the first term-limited president in accordance with the 22nd Amendment.

Eisenhower's two terms were peaceful ones for the most part and saw considerable economic prosperity except for a sharp recession in 1958–59. Eisenhower is now often ranked as one of the top ten U.S. Presidents.
