An instrument of mass murder or merely an accident?
By Greg Raven
Now¹ that several years have passed since that fateful night of April 14, 1912, when the Titanic struck an iceberg in the North Atlantic and sank, killing 1,503 of the 2,208 aboard, there is a movement afoot to “rewrite” the history of this event.

These seemingly plausible statements ignore the fact that Hitler did not become Chancellor of Germany overnight, he worked his way up, getting his start in the German army during World War I.
The revisionists also attempt to downplay Hitler’s (and indeed, Germany’s) role in the Titanic disaster by harping on the “fact” that the Titanic sailed from Southampton, Great Britain.

Would a man who contents himself bombing the innocent civilians of a foreign country hesitate to sink a ship belonging to that same foreign country out of some sense of fair play? The answer, of course, is “no.”
Furthermore, the revisionists attempt to deny the fact that most of those who died in on the Titanic were almost without exception Jewish, targets of Hitler’s “Final Solution.” In Mein …
