Re: Jewish SOE Naval Unit Led By Brits...

Not exactly a rare skill in SOE or in assorted military units in the theatre. No,but coupled with language skills and a willingness to please it might have been.It was a very rough neighborhood as evidenced by their fate...a body believed to be that of Palmer was washed ashore showing evidence of m...

Why should people accept anything that the authorities put forward?No DNA,no proof.

Re: Arizona shooter cited Mein Kampf in online postings...

At the time, we all got a "free" copy of Mein Kampf, ( which a few days later was deducted from our soldierpay ) :evil: It also was naturally required reading, but luckily i got my hands on a booklet of the most famous (or infamous?) quotes, something like the "notes" our highschool kids can buy ab...

Re: Black jews and Hitler.

I have a book,Among The Righteous,which concerns sephardi in Algeria,Tunisia and Libya.Nothing about Ethiopia.Don't believe the Jews were a concern to the Italians when they occupied,their numbers were very small,iirc.

Re: Black jews and Hitler.

Which "black" jews are you referring to?In North Africa there are Sephardic Jews.In Ethiopia there are some black Jews,a distinct minority.

Re: What do YOU do to stay in shape?

Disagree about isolation...somewhat.Really boils down to what "in shape" means to you.Too much isolation isn't "real muscle",according to some.Squats,deadlifts and the benchpress with a bar,or better yet dumbells can't be beat provided you make sure you are flexible enough,and technique is proper be...

Re: What do YOU do to stay in shape?
