Last week, two terrorist attacks were carried out in Paris.
On June 10, 1944 German soldiers occupied the French town of Oradour sur Glane and massacred 642 men, women and children.
In Germany, Nazi leaders across the spectrum condemned the attack in the strongest terms.
Herman Goering said in an official statement: "This act has nothing to do with Nazism."
Nazi Propaganda Minister Josef Goebbels told members of the international press the following:
"Nazism is a peaceful movement. The Fuehrer would never allow this type of thing to happen."
Alfred Rosenberg, considered the philosopher of the Nazi movement, told a reporter from the Voelkischer Beobachter today, " Chapter one in Mein Kampf tells us how the Fuehrer's kind mother always taught him never to hurt another human being. She was a saint."
Along those lines, Heinrich Himmler opined that some German soldiers may have misinterpreted some parts of Mein Kampf. "They are not real Nazis," he added.
German Foreign Minister Joaquim von Ribbentrop pointed out that many of these German soldiers come from poor backgrounds and found themselves in France, where they were scorned by the local population.
That was seconded by Kleinschwanz von Foodle, Professor of German at UCLA, who blamed it all on Naziphobia.
Julius Streicher, Gauleiter of Franconia and Editor of Der Stuermer wrote an op-ed today in his paper and claimed that the attack was not carried out by Germans rather by Israeli agents of the Mossad.
"It was the Jews," he said.
This was echoed in San Francisco by an American supporter of Germany named Gertie Dusseldorf, who told anybody who would listen that it was Israel who carried out the attack. "Any four-year-old could figure that out," she said.
Also in America, a spokesman for the German-American Bund, Heinrich Eilueche, asked why people were all talking about Germans who joined the Reichswehr and went to France to kill French people, but nobody was talking about German Jews who were going to Israel.
That was then. This is now.
