Them vs. Us

by Edgar J. Steele

April 23, 2004

Earlier this week, I sent you a piece entitled, "For Freedom," in which I made clear that tomorrow's Zundel Revisionist Conference will take place, as scheduled, albeit at a new location.  In it, I explained how the Jewish Defense League (JDL) was behind an attempt at total censorship by forcing the owner of the leased hall to cancel its contract.  This news outraged a good number of people, as well it should.

In that same essay, I vowed that the JDL would never shut me up, not so long as I draw breath, and explained why, years ago, they were responsible for my children receiving death threats simply because I did my job as a lawyer and provided a legal defense to someone the Jews hated.  I included links to the recorded threats left for one of my children and myself (there are others):  Link 1, Link 2.  JDL thug Mark Wiles brazenly identified himself in the second message.

Well, the JDL and Mark Wiles are at it again.  Yesterday, they threatened me once more and were audacious enough to do it in writing.  I also have received anonymous death threats this week.  My wife has received strange, menacing phone calls at our private, unlisted telephone number.

I provide the JDL threat in its entirety below, with my response directly before it.  You need to read my response first, so as to understand the coded threat contained within the JDL message.  Of course, they would never say, "We're going to kill you," or the like.  They do it with veiled references.  Thus, first you must understand what the significance of the presence of Mark Wiles is and what is meant by the "relationship" he has been directed by his JDL employers to "renew" with me.

They are determined to disrupt the rescheduled conference.  They will not succeed.  They will not succeed because I and others like myself - and good people like you - will not let them.  More than ever, it is crucial that you attend, if it is at all possible. 

This is your chance to do more than simply meet some of us and hear us speak.  Here is your chance to make a statement merely by showing up.  Here is your chance to do something, to play a game bigger than the one your life has called for, to date.

If you absolutely cannot attend, please listen to at least some of the conference, which will be broadcast over the internet at the same URL.  The taped delay will be about an hour, I am told.  I am scheduled to talk at about 3 p.m., PDT.

The tactics of the JDL are just so typical of Jewish oppression all over America these days, which has been accelerated by the increasing public awareness that our sons and daughters are dying for the sake of Israel...that so much of our tax money is spent supporting and defending Israel, and advancing its interests...that our good name internationally has been destroyed through the actions of the last three Administrations for the sake of Israel...that our congressmen and senators have been bought and paid for by those acting in the interest of Israel.

It isn't a case of "us vs. them," which is the lie they spread by claiming we are anti-Semitic and must be punished for our improper thinking.  It is critical that you understand what really is going on.  It is Them vs. Us, just the way it always has been, down through time.  

Ask yourself why the Jews have been expelled from one country after another, for hundreds and hundreds of years.  Ask yourself why people like myself, who could barely spell the word Jew before, have become tireless in our efforts to unmask the Jewish terrorists amongst us.  Ask yourself why little Palestinian children are willing to risk being shot in the head for the satisfaction of throwing rocks at armored Israeli tanks.  Because it's Them vs. Us, that's why.  They are the destroyers and interlopers, just as they will try to be tomorrow.  Don't let them.

Make a difference.  If you respect me and what I have to say, come and tell me so in person.   Drive through the night.  Hop on a plane after work.  Hitchhike.  I've never said this to you before, but I need your help.  I don't ask for your money and I don't ask you to volunteer for anything.  I ask you for the single most valuable thing you possess:  You - your presence and your support.

It will be my honor to shake your hand and thank you personally for showing up.  When the JDL draws the line in the dirt tomorrow, show them that we won't stand for censorship.  We won't stand for their threatening little girls.  We won't stand for their taking away our rights.

Join me in showing the JDL that they will never break our spirit.  

They will never silence us.  

They will never take our freedom.

If not for me, do it for yourself, just as I do it for Us every day of my life now.  Like it or not, it's Them vs. Us, for now.  Make a difference, before it becomes Them or Us.

Mr. Maniaci -
You claim to be peaceful, then promise to have your "good friend" Mark Wiles with you in Sacramento this weekend to "renew (our) relationship?"  The same Mark Wiles from Nevada, the JDL free-range goon squad enforcer and former lead henchman for the late Irv Rubin?
Lessee now, that would be the relationship that entailed Wiles' threatening my family and me with physical harm, of course. 
That would also be the relationship which saw him physically assault me in front of the courthouse in Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, during the Aryan Nations trial. 
The relationship which saw your organization issue a death threat to my little 8-year-old girl, as well as every other member of my family.
Would that include Mr. Wiles' episode of gun waving in front of the home of my client at the time of that trial, too?
Simply because I dared to provide legal representation to the defendants in that trial.  At that time, of course, I had yet to start writing or speaking out against terrorists and criminals such as yourself.  In a very real sense, your organization created me, you know.  Just as you create all anti-Semites.
I recognize that this is just your cute way of threatening me, Mr. Maniaci.  Are you also behind the anonymous death threats I have been receiving this week?
For all the good it will do, I will turn your threat over to the FBI and the Sacramento Police Department and demand physical protection from you and your Nazi-esque thugs.
Your word means nothing, Mr. Maniaci.  It is the word of a craven coward who threatens little girls.  The word of a man terrified the world might learn the truth about himself and the terrorist organization of which he is a member.  In short, the word of a bully, a liar and a thief; just one of so many Jewish thieves who have stolen our America and robbed us of our rights, our heritage and our culture.
Interestingly, Israeli Barry Chamish originally had been on the agenda to provide the very dialogue you disingenuously mention, from the point of view of Jewish Supremacists like yourself, but your tactics have prevented his attendance now.  His stated intention was to convince all attendees of the incorrectness of our position.  Even he is outraged at your bullyboy methods, so reminiscent of the way that Israel deals with the Palestinians.
You seek no dialogue.  You seek only to shout down and shut out.  When you can't do that, then you and your followers resort to death threats to little girls and brazen physical violence.  When that doesn't work, your fellow travelers always have found that a bullet to the base of the skulls of your enemies is most effective, as so often demonstrated by you Jews following the Bolshevik takeover in Russia last century.
Come on down, Mr. Maniaci.  You and your fellow travelers may kill our children as you have threatened.  You may even kill many of us, as you have done so many times past and in lands distant.  But you will never break our spirit.  You will never silence us.  You will never take our freedom.

Mr. Edgar Steele,

Dear Ed,

I realize that you are one of the preeminent defenders of the First Amendment, and insist that your rights therein not be infringed upon. You are going to enjoy your rights on Saturday.  However, by keeping that location a secret, you are essentially denying our free speech rights.

If we don't know where you are, then you have trampled upon the rights that you so vehemently insist that you protect. Is it not then your moral obligation to tell us the location so that we may peacefully counter demonstrate?

You have my word that we will be non-violent. After all, haven't you said repeatedly that the Jews have no guts?  Be a good sport, besides, my good friend, Mr. Wiles will be with me and he is anxious to renew your relationship.

Who are you afraid of, a few old and feeble Jews? Give me a break!
