While doing a recent radio show in Los Angeles. I received an inquiry from none other than the famed terrorist of the Jewish Defense League, Irv Rubin. He sounded like an elderly Jewish tailor sequestered in a Hebrew rest home, as he querulously asked me, “I just want to know where you’re coming from, Mr. Mullins.” I patiently answered that I was coining from Virginia, whereupon he interrupted, “I mean, all this hate that you’re spreading, you’re very slick at what you do.” I refused to let my head be turned by this effusive praise, whereupon the famous Irv got off the line. A few days later, I picked up a new book by one of his more infamous compatriots, Simon Weisenthal, which was falsely titled, “Justice, Not Vengeance”. In fact, the Weisenthal story is about nothing but Vengeance. There is not a single episode of justice recounted in the entire book. Although Weisenthal lists his published works as Non-Fiction, such as “The Murderers Among Us”, and “Every Day Remembrance Day,” he fails to warn us that much of the material in these books has been challenged as the most outrageous, albeit inventive, fiction as are most of his claimed accomplishments.
The foreword by a “friend of many decades” notes his self-appointed title as the “Eichmann hunter” although Mossad operatives who engineered the abduction of Adolf Eichmann from his home in Argentine indignantly deny that Weisenthal played any role in the kidnapping. Weisenthal’s friend, as though to negate the title of the hook, insists in the foreword that “Guilt cannot be forgiven, but only paid for by expiation. Step by step.” This has been the motto of the Weisenthal persecutions of elderly veterans of the Second World War around the globe. It is interesting that he never goes after wealthy or powerful “ex-Nazis” but reserves his most vicious attacks for elderly retired workingmen with no assets for legal assistance to fend off his unending prosecutions.
