Researchers into Jewish influences should have a copy,
This review is from: Hanged By The Neck (Paperback)This is a 1961 'Penguin Special' paperback - originally costing 2 shillings and sixpence. Two Jewish authors (Koestler and Rolph) with republished material. Also material from the 'Howard Leagure for Penal Reform', Louis Blom-Cooper, 'Dr Terence Morris of the London School of Economics', and others. Unindexed. A long chapter (pp 103-141) lists 123 murderers and convictions from 1949-1960. Quite a few are described as immature, insane, probably unaware of what he was doing, etc, which seems to be regarded as a good excuse for murder. It's not clear how many near murders, undetected murders, etc, or murders overseas and comparative experience, took place in the same time. The whole book is a compendium of how to do bogus social research.
The campaign to abolish capital punishment was led by Jews (Sidney Silverman MP) was another - or, at least, this seems to be the case, although of course this topic is heavily censored. At the time Quintin Hogg/Lord Hailsham ironically commented that only recently Jews had been very keen to kill German leaders. (The BBC has a radio comment about him on its archives - he also explicitly viewed feminism as promoted by Jewish women who'd been to Kibbutzes.).
There are probably many copies of this paperback turning yellow - worth an addition to any Jewish studies library.

The above review is more dull anti-semitic nonsense.

Everything in the review is true. Amazon has an obligation to bar obsessives such as yourself.

I hesitate to give credence to this anti-Semitic nonsense by giving it a reply. Firstly, it is the first refuge of all forms of scoundrel to accuse others of what they themselves are guilty of. Thus I am an "obsessive". To a degree I am, about the truth, about justice, and about confronting racism when I see it. Of course, anyone who wants to have a flick through "revisionists" posts will see that he sees Jewish conspiracies everywhere. Given the history of what Jewish conspiracy theories lead to, this is hardly a trivial matter. Secondly, I know that I will not get a reasoned debate here but simply name calling. It is reasonable question to ask why so many Jewish politicians allied themselves with liberal causes, but this is clearly not the place for a reasoned discussion about the Jewish political identity in Britain. So just a few random facts. The implication here to that the abolition of the death penalty is associated with Jewish people. But there is not a monolithic Jewish political identify, there were also Jews on the right who were pro-hanging (Keith Joseph springs to mind). And it is not the case the campaign against the death was a particularly Jewish one. Yes, Sydney Silverman was Jewish. The campaign for the reform of the death penalty goes back to Sir Samuel Romilly, was a big issue for the Quakers and counted Charles Dickens amongst its supporters. John Howard after whom the Howard League for Penal Reform and an abolitionist but not, as far as I know, Jewish. The main 20th century abolitionist group in the UK was formed in 1925 by Roy Calvert (as far as I know, a Quaker). If you look at the MPs who led the campaign for abolition in the early 1960 the main names other than Silverman were Chuter Ede, Peter Kirk, Julian Critchley and Jeremy Thorpe (I don't think that any were Jewish). Just because some Jewish people were involved does not makes it a Jewish campaign, no more than some Jewish people wanting to retain the death penalty makes that a Jewish campaign. Of course, some people are predisposed to seeing Jewish conspiracies everywhere, and there are plenty of choice words to describe them.

Oh, and CH Rolph (Cecil Rolph Hewitt) was not, as far as I know, Jewish. Is there a bit of "Rolph" being a funny sounding name, maybe a bit "foreign". Hewitt was a police officer who wrote under a pseudonym.

Yes, there's some truth in that. But the fact is, as Hailsham pointed out, that a few years vefore 'Jews' had been very keen to hang as many Germans as they could. It's clear they had no objection to meting out death, as in fact is unambiguously clear from their 'holy' books. There are plenty of words to describe people like them - and like you.
