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.

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!
Jewish Defense League, Chairman
