The key visible figure maneuvering the British government into this commitment was Jewish chemist, Chaim Weizmann, who rose to prominence in England for developing a method of producing acetone from maize which was needed for the production of artillery shells.

One of the most prominent Jewish eugenicists of this period was Dr Joseph Meir, for whom the hospital in Kfar Sava is named, exhorted his co-religionists in to embrace the idea of racial engineering:

Journalist Robert Parry Indeed, that was the original reason that I turned to what was then a new media platform to create a home for well-reported stories and to challenge the many misguided conventional wisdoms. As one of the reporters who helped expose the Iran-Contra scandal for The Associated Press in the mids, I was distressed by the silliness and propaganda that had come to pervade American journalism.
I feared, too, that the decline of the U.
Also bydocuments were emerging that put the history of the s in a new and more troubling light. Yet, there were fewer and fewer media outlets interested in that history.
The memories of Ronald Reagan and George H. Bush were enveloped in warm-and-fuzzy myths that represented another kind of danger: Though we have struggled with funding — surviving for more than two decades through a combination of our own frugality and the generosity of our readers — we have managed to produce groundbreaking journalism on many of the most significant issues of the day, including national security, foreign policy, politics and the environment.
We also looked at the underlying problems of modern democracy, particularly the insidious manipulation of citizens by government propaganda and the accomplice role played by mainstream media.

The "Green Wing" of the Nazi Party and its Historical Antecedents Peter Staudenmaier "We recognize that separating humanity from nature, from the whole of life, leads to humankind’s own destruction and to the death of nations. "In the German language, Hitler drew on a kind of rhetorical power which — in a way is perhaps a little bit peculiar to German — allies highly abstract concepts with political, physical.
One can fault the British for many things but not for their sense of humour. Some time ago I saw a sketch by the comedy duo Mitchell and Webb. They played two German soldiers, sitting in a fortified position at the front, enjoying the relative quiet of the moment. They were dressed in SS uniforms.
