Maryland Jewish Groups Attempting To Tie Holocaust Museum Shooter James Von Brunn To The National Alliance As A Scapegoat
The system has been desperately seeking an organizational scapegoat for James Von Brunn's shootup at the U.S. Holocaust Museum in Washington, D.C. They can't handle the distinct possibility that he was a lone wolf who decided he'd had enough. They want to have an official "hate group" to blame it on.
And a number of local Jews near Annapolis, Maryland where Von Brunn lived may be helping them out. According to HometownAnnapolis, some members of the local Jewish community have strong suspicions that James Von Brunn was also behind the distribution of white supremacist leaflets dispersed throughout the city and county in 2005. Jennifer Laszlo Mizrahi, an Annapolis resident and president of an international nonprofit organization, The Israel Project, said she believes the 22-page leaflet of white supremacist propaganda left on her property in December 2005 can be traced to Von Brunn.
Furthemore, some blogs and news reports on the Internet have alleged von Brunn was closely affiliated with leaders of the National Alliance, a West Virginia-based group that espouses anti-Zionist and pro-White propaganda. The literature distributed in 2005 was produced by the National Alliance. So Mizrahi has been seized by the notion that there's a National Alliance connection to the Holocaust Museum shootup.
"I don't have a membership card from him, but I do know that the flyers had National Alliance on them and he was very closely linked with them," Mizrahi said. Mizrahi also explained that in 2005, she found the material from National Alliance - all 22 pages of it - rolled up in a plastic bag and lying next to my local paper. On the outside of the handouts appeared a photo of a blond-haired, blue-eyed child with the headline 'Missing' blown up and written in bold. When she first saw it, she opened the material thinking it was to help an innocent child. However, what she saw were the words "A Future For White Children Is Missing". Within the pages, Jews were described as "kikes with hook noses". [Ed. Note: The complete library of National Alliance flyers is available HERE.]
Mizrahi is not alone in thinking von Brunn's residence here and the distribution of the fliers is not a coincidence. Rabbi Ari Goldstein of Temple Beth Shalom in Arnold issued a statement on June 11th reflecting his concerns:
"It is with extreme sadness that we reflect upon yesterday's shooting ... The death of Stephen T. Johns, as he heroically protected the museum visitors, is a terrible tragedy to everyone who values life and peace. It is also with great disappointment that we realize that James von Brunn, the man who committed this heinous hate crime, is the same man and the same organization that spread racist and anti-Semitic pamphlets on the properties of Annapolis and Arnold residents", said Goldstein.
This story has also been picked up by WVNS Channel 59, which replicates SPLC propaganda claiming that Von Brunn was also a close associate of National Alliance founder Dr. William Pierce, and that the association dated back to the 1970s. There's no indication that either media outlet attempted to contact the National Alliance to get their reaction to this story, so it is possible that Chairman Erich Gliebe is totally unaware of this new development.
To tie the National Alliance to the shooting in Washington D.C., based on a literature drop four years ago, is ludicrous. The National Alliance does not require you to be a member of their organization to distribute their literature. Anyone can view and order their literature through instructions posted HERE. Thus this is clearly an attempt to set up the National Alliance as a possible scapegoat and use it as an excuse to launch a nationwide repression against White activists at first, but then spreading to pro-family activists, pro-gun activists, and even immigration reform activists as well. White nationalists are used as a test bed by the government to determine how much repression they can get away with. The 2007 show trial of the Shaun Walker trio in Salt Lake City was a test bed for the now-catastrophically failed Ted Stevens prosecution, a failure which also has caused the related cases of Pete Kott and Vic Kohring to be remanded back to the original trial judge for re-consideration.
What is done to the White nationalist movement today will be done to others tomorrow.
