Terror Alert

Michael Hoffman – On the Contrary May 11, 2011

New Yorker Michael Santomauro, an indefatigable revisionist writer and activist who resides, improbably enough, on the Upper West Side of Manhattan, is being targeted by a Zionist terror organization. The misnamed “Jewish Defense Organization” headed by the violent psychopath Mordechai Levy, has been terrorizing revisionist writers with impunity since at least the 1980s.

 New York: Manhattan: Protest Over Holocaust Skeptic
New York Times – October 25, 2004

In 1989, Levy was charged with attempted murder for shooting at three people who were standing outside Mr. Levy’s home in New York, one of whom was trying to serve him with court papers in a California slander suit. A 69-year-old man was wounded in that shooting, and Mr. Levy, then age 30, was convicted of first-degree assault. After conviction he was released from prison in record time. Even after the shooting, the Zionist New York Times gave favorable coverage to Levy:

About two dozen protesters chanting “evict the Nazi” rallied yesterday in front of the Upper West Side apartment building of a man who has questioned historical accounts of the Holocaust. Some of the two dozen or so demonstrators, who were watched by a similar number of police officers, – said that the man, Michael Santomauro, had been holding meetings with his supporters in the building, on 72nd Street near West End Avenue. ”We have to take a stand on this hatred being brought into the community,” said James Vrettos, 55, a sociology professor at Yeshiva University.

Mordechai Levy, (left with baseball bat), of the Jewish Defense Organization, said he organized the rally after hearing that Mr. Santomauro had held a gathering at a nearby church last month. A doorman in the building, Jay Roman, said that he knew of no meetings. Mr. Santomauro, who founded a roommate matching service in 1979, could not be reached for comment yesterday, but in an article in The New York Times in 2003, he called himself an ”amateur Holocaust revisionist.” (End quote)

Notice that there is no reference in the preceding New York Times report to the fact that Levy is a convicted gunman who has shot people. Almost everywhere Louis Farrakhan speaks, the media report that decades ago he once referred to Judaism as a “gutter religion,” while with Levy, the media have amnesia concerning his record of violence.

Mr. Levy has scheduled a “protest” against Santomauro for May 15:

Jewish Defense Organization (JDO) rally against Michael Santomauro for May 15, 2011

 Statement to all media outlets by Michael Santomauro

“Like any American, I have the right to host meetings, distribute information, and inquire into subject matters as part of our first amendment.  As a free rights activist, I feel that no subject matter should be taboo or criminalized and that especially when a subject matter is controversial and sensitive, like the Holocaust, it deserves even more attention, inquiry, debate and discussion in a respectful manner.

“Like me, the Jewish Defense Organization has a right to free speech, but what they are saying is untrue.  I am not a Nazi, and oppose all that Nazism stands for including all other schools of fascism such as Zionism, which the Jewish Defense Organization supports. Why would the Jewish Defense Organization support an apartheid state who seeks a racially pure state? The Jewish Defense Organization is racist! No decent American would or should support the racist government of Israel, unless you are a racist like the Zionist Jewish Defense Organization—they are the Nazis!

“Also, the Jewish Defense Organization is not correct, in that I do not sell Nazi materials or hold Neo-Nazi meetings, or anything of the sort from any location.

“The location they are targeting has nothing to do with my work, so clearly the Jewish Defense Organization is mistaken. The Jewish Defense Organization obviously has a right to rally, as they have in the past at my home on the Upper West Side.

“And nope! I don’t pay the Jewish Defense Organization to rally so I can sell more books!”
