Reichstag fires

The Reichstag fire in 1933 was a pivotal event in Nazi history. The Nazis used the burning of the parliamentary building to gain support and push through repression. The Nazis tried to blame it on the Comintern, the international communist organization. From my perspective today, the interesting thing about it is that we do not hear of any deaths from the fire. We do continue to hear that the Nazis themselves had a hand in it.(1)

The number of I$raelis killed in “terror” attacks from 1978 to 1998 was 533.(2) That’s according to I$raelis. Another 1072 Israelis have died since September 29 2000 through the end of 2008 according to an I$raeli source.(3)

The latest figure for deaths of New Yorkers on 9/11 from Wikipedia is 3017.(4)

I see no reason that Mayor Bloomberg should be spying on Muslims or that the federal government should be conspiring against communists just so I$rael can go on living in the colonial era. I’m also sure Mayor Bloomberg can find things to spend money on, other than security against Muslim jihadi attacks.
