NY Gov. Martin Glynn must have been a mindreader! In August 1919, Glynn wrote “The Crucifixion of Jews Must Stop! . . .Because of this war for Democracy six milliion Jewish men and women are starving across the seas; eight hundred thousand Jewish babies are crying for bread.. . . .In this threatened holocaust of human life . . .through the awful tyranny of war and a bigoted lust for Jewish blood. . . .”
Glynn’s plea for mercy toward suffering humanity is touching. I wonder why he did not express the same concern for 800,000 German civilians who DID die as a result of the Allied blockade on Germany that persisted while Jews were at the negotiating table demanding to be rewarded with BOTH a “homeland for Jews in Palestine” and the guarantee of full rights for Jews in other European states where they dwelt.
I also wonder why Edwin Black did not mention the number of Jews who starved to death in Germany in his discussion of the reasons why 800,000 Germans died of starvation in World War I (see “The Transfer Agreement, ” 1984 ed., p. 21).
