The death lists of the WTC: few Jews?
YOU never fail to amaze with your conspiracies, the latest being, of course, the number of Jewish/Israeli deaths in the WTC. Even having a quick glance through the missing/dead list at CNN reveals quite a number ... how about these for a start?
William F. Abrahamson, 58, Cortland Manor, N.Y., USA Michael G. Arczynski, 45, Little Silver, N.J., USA Alvin Bergsohn, 48, Baldwin Harbor, N.Y., USA Daniel D. Bergstein, 38, Teaneck, N.J., USA William Bernstein, 44, New York, N.Y., USA Shimmy D. Biegeleisen, 42, New York, N.Y., USA Joshua David Birnbaum, 24, New York, N.Y., USA Martin Boryczewski, 29, Parsippany, N.J., USA Gennady Boyarsky, 34, New York, N.Y., USA Alexander Braginsky, 38, Stamford, Conn., USA.
Then there is:
Shai Levinhar, 29, New York, N.Y., USA, Cantor Fitzgerald Confirmed dead, World Trade Center, at/in building, Israeli
Okay, so only one Israeli citizen killed. How many dead Israelis in the Pentagon? None. Wow, what a surprise. Look at all the Jews killed. Mossad must have been very reliable in warning THEM.
Does one detect a common trend in the number of Jewish dead in major catastrophes, hmmm? --

David Irving writes:
I HAVE a policy of not normally printing anonymous letters on this website, but fearing a whinge I have included the above, and replied to the correspondent that the focus of the original discussion was Israelis, rather than Jewish names. (Moreover not everybody whose name ends in "-sky" is Jewish, just as not everybody whose name includes Irving or David can make that claim). The point is not the common trend about which the correspondent talks above, but our need to maintain a healthy scepticism about all official news releases. There maybe some good statistical reason for the under representation of Israelis in the deathroll (e.g. people holding dual nationality.) That is what discussion is about.
