In the tradition of the forged protocols of Zion
The self-styled and obsessive "anti-Zionist" activist Tony Greenstein has published a letter from a Dr Sam Glatt, a 90 year old man that is a forgery.
You can find this letter on his hate-site here: http://azvsas.blogspot.co.uk
I posted the following reply:
(Hold on, this is waiting to be approved by www,azvsas.blogspot.com.)
This letter is fake and it's sentiments disgraceful but you and your vile supporters know this or should by now. Here is the response from the recipient which you and those who praise this travesty should read. If you dare to allow this to be published of course. Up until now I have ignored your ridiculous attention seeking nonsense but you have gone too far on too many occasions:
"It is the most vitriolic and dramatic letter. A 90 year old Jewish doctor, Sam Glatt publishing an open letter in which he starts and ends by saying how much he despises me.
Time and again in his word processed letter he attacks my motivations and character. Gleefully activists have circulated this attack across Facebook in a kind of wise 'told you so' celebration.
Except Dr Sam Glatt never wrote the letter.
It arrived, beautifully printed out by recorded delivery. But Dr Glatt doesn't use a computer these days. He hadn't been to the post office to record its delivery. But he was very happy to chat and we did for a long time.
He is a very gentle man, polite in a way that symbolises his generation. He has views, clear and precise and we agreed on some things but not all. Like most civilised people.
But he never once attacked nor abused me. He was mortified to hear what had been written in his name. He would never dream of writing to someone telling them how much he hated them and he was interested to be sent copies of what I had said and written on anti-semitism. You see, he had never heard nor read any of them.
He suggested I rang the man who actually wrote the letter, someone called Graham Martin, whose father was a close friend of Dr Glatt. So I rang Mr Martin, who yelled at me for a few seconds and put the phone down stating that he and I would never have anything in common. Evidently.
I have invited Dr Glatt to Parliament and I hope he is well enough to come. We will discuss and agree and disagree. Without hatred or animosity.
As for the actual author of this hate mail, Graham Martin, I see little point in inviting him in. Parliament is a democracy and in a democracy you should have the courage to say things yourself and not masquerade as a 90 year old doctor."
