"If I knew that it was possible to save all the children of Germany by transporting them to England, and only half by transferring them to the Land of Israel, I would choose the latter, for before us lies not only the numbers of these children but the historical reckoning of the people of Israel."
David Ben-Gurion (Quoted on pp 855-56 in Shabtai Teveth's Ben-Gurion in a slightly different translation).
Andie has posted a blog which links to a compilation of newspaper items showing that the mythical figure of six million and talk about a Jewish "holocaust" predates World War II by a long shot, and has been oddly recurrent throughout modern history. The six million figure shows up repeatedly in old newspaper articles, almost as if international Jewry were willing their own "holocaust" into existence.
This source, among others, offers an explanation as to why:
In the Hebrew-text of Torah-prophesies it states: "You shall return." In that text the letter "V" or "VAU" is missing (which also stands for "6"). The researcher Ben Weintraub was informed by Rabbis that the missing "V" (= the missing 6) was the foreshadowing of the "6 million". Therefore, the prophesy: "You shall return", is interpreted as: "You shall return minus 6 million." This self-imposed prophesy led to the "6 million-prophecy-crash" in 1919. Based on the Balfour-Declaration of 1917 the state of Israel was guaranteed, and the Diaspora-Jews would return to the "Promised Land". The leading Jews at that time expected 1920 a migration of their brethren into "their Land". But, before the return could take place, "6 million" of them had to disappear, according to prophesies.
Here are a few interesting quotes.
"These numbers do matter," Hilberg [one of the most prominent Jewish holocaust historians] said. "They also matter for a very simple reason -- call it religious, if you like."[Guttenplan in The Atlantic Monthly, Boston, USA, February, 2000]
"What are you writing?" the Rebbe asked. "Stories," I said. He wanted to know what kind of stories: true stories. "About people you knew?" Yes, about things that happened or could have happened. "But they did not?" No, not all of them did. In fact, some were invented from almost the beginning to almost the end. The Rebbe leaned forward as if to measure me up and said with more sorrow than anger: "That means you are writing lies!" I did not answer immediately. The scolded child within me had nothing to say in his defence. Yet, I had to justify myself: "Things are not that simple, Rebbe. Some events do take place but are not true; others are - although they never occurred." [Elie Wiesel, Legends of Our Time, Schocken Books, New York 1982, S. VIII]
No-one less important than the late Director of the German government sponsored Institute for Contemporary History, Dr. Martin Broszat, stated under oath in front of a German court, that the "6 million holocaust-Jews" were a "symbolical figure", not a factual one [Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, Aug. 23, 1994, page 7].
There's much more to add to the aforementioned list of news items. This is where the Google news archive comes in handy. Use the advanced search option to refine your search and specify a particular time period (say, 1890 - 1930).
Here are just a few items of interest.
Herald-Journal - April 2, 1919: Six Million Jews Starving To Death
The destitution of Jewish war sufferers during the coming months will probably surpass anything ever known in the history of human suffering; their suffering is worse than death - it is the lingering torture of starvation, the piteous tragedy of emaciation, the horrible waiting, in agony of hunger, for the grim reaper to end their misery.
The Toronto World - Feb 6 1920: Six Million Jews are Facing Death
Feilding Star, Volume XXVII, Issue 95, 15 November 1905, Page 2: Great Britain's Indignation At Jewish Massacres
The above article published in 1905 mentions Arthur Balfour and Lord Rothschild of the British Zionist Federation, and the latter's desire for the creation of a Jewish state in Palestine 12 years before the Balfour Declaration of 1917.
The meeting recorded its earnest conviction that the Jews were not immune from a recurrence of the massacres until they obtained a publicly recognised home in Palestine.
New York Times - July 20, 1921: Massacre Threatens All Jews as Soviet Power Wanes
Russia's 6,000,000 Jews are facing extermination by massacre. As the famine is spreading, the counter-revolutionary movement is gaining and the Soviet's control is waning.
And this corker, which proves that Jews were asking for billions (in 1918 dollars!) in interest-free loans well before today's post-1967 U.S. policy of billions in aid to Israel.
New York Times - Oct 18, 1918: $1,000,000,000 Fund To Rebuild Jewry - LOANS WITHOUT INTEREST
The American people, Jews and nonJews alike, will soon be asked to lend or contribute the larger part of a fund of approximately $1,000,000,000 to carry out plans for the reconstruction of the Jewry of the entire world.
(List to be updated as time permits.)
The Google news archive is also helpful in digging up old newspaper articles about early Jewish terrorism in Palestine, before the creation of the Zionist regime. Here are a few examples:
The Age - Nov 2, 1945: Outrages in Palestine: Jewish Terrorism
The Sydney Morning Herald - Jan 4, 1947: New Palestine Attacks: Jewish Terrorism Resumed
Time - Nov 13, 1944: Stern Gangsters
Get stuck into it and do your own digging. It's a goldmine. Also check the news archive on Churchill's statement about Jewish terrorism in the wake of the assassination of Lord Moyne by the Stern Gang in 1944.
