If you bothered to read any GMJ Book, you will find in each two themes which will never be missing. (1) Winston Churchill is an arch liar and idiot of note that got lucky – all his shenanigans are exposed and (2) the British Army invented something called “Concentration Camps” and not the nasty Germans. The characters are Afrikaners or in Geelslang’s case, Afrikaner orientated and not about to have politically correct views. It makes them special and what they say is sometimes disquieting but never racially motivated, only historical.
Naturally, such ideas as the above are designed to annoy a Pommy and what is worse, I can prove every word. If I say Churchill was a disaster, say in Norway in 1940, you can bet your last penny, I know the truth and since I am not an Englishman and have no desire to be one, it is safe to say that I have other views on Winston Churchill than what is the norm. The same with the suspected homosexual called Lord Kitchener, the British Commander in Chief that started the concentration camps in 1901 during the Second Anglo Boer War. Yes, he is the fellow on that famous World War One poster stating “I want you!” and that is now seen in a frightening light. This creating of concentration camps, by the way, is something mentioned by one Herman Goering now and then and the connection? His father served in German South West Africa right next to the two Boer Republics during the Herero Uprising of 1904, so his son knew and drove the British Ambassador nuts with it. Despite my less than stellar opinion of Winston Churchill, dubbed the “arch liar” in every book with reason, his books are of no use as a research tool, too misleading – he did after all said and I quote: “History will be kind to me, I intent writing it,” I am fair in my books.
I acknowledge that although fully one third of all Afrikaner women and children died in those concentration camps, yes, between 26 000 and 37 000 excluding their loyal servants (not slaves, hallo), I do say it was not on purpose. Nope, it was by disease and also hunger because of a lack of administration and a f you attitude in general. It took Emily Hobhouse to get some sense in the administrators. And yet, those Boer women and children died and unlike Hillary Clinton (she plays a large role in the books too) it does matter. You only have to see the picture of those skeleton children and women to understand the Afrikaner’s dislike of anything English since then. Those pictures will remind you of places like Buchenwald and Auschwitz and yet, no apology.
When the main leech, that is Queen Victoria to you, died during the Second Anglo Boer War, many said straight it was justice from a Higher Power. Which brings us to another topic, some Indians are now suing for the return of the Kho Noor diamond they said was stolen from them? Well, in law, no, I just don’t see that happening but I have to wonder then - Cullinan Diamond? Read the new GMJ Book, Code Name Blue Tang, hopefully available by the end of November 2015, and you will know about the Cullinan Diamond and others “stolen from Africa” to quote a well-known singer from the Caribbean. With taxpayer money too, pathetic, to suck up to the royals. Amazing, it seems corruption did not start in 1994 then. What do you know?
And now I see some German writers published a book “Faces of Evil: Crimes and Criminals of the 20th century” and our mate, the suspected homosexual, Lord Kitchener, is heading that list for the “45 000” women and children he murdered. In all fairness, that is a higher number than usually acknowledged but I am glad to see his face there, thoroughly deserved says I. And the entire British online population is showing their lack of history knowledge with denials, not so much on Lord Kitchener, no, more on the fact that the authors also called Bomber Command leader, Arthur Harris, a criminal. Well, he did start carpet bombing of innocents during the Second World War but say the Brits, Germany did so first. In fact, Germany did not. It was the Arch Liar who had Berlin bombed three times before the Luftwaffe attacked London after Hitler publically warned he will retaliate. Yes, go and read your history books but unfortunately you won’t find that, nope, to the victor goes the spoils and so it is. But ask any German or neutral student of history, and you hear another story. And then they jump back to the bombing of Rotterdam in 1940 whilst the British Army was running for home leaving the French to face the German panzers alone (against their treaty obligations, the Dunkirk runners were supposed to be taken to another part of France immediately after – we know they only came back under US command four years later). The Rotterdam aerial attack was against entrenched troops, not a war crime as was the concentration camps and yes, Great Britain did sign the Genève Convention before the camps were created, no excuse then. Also interesting is that there are many rumours that an Afrikaner succeeded in killing Lord Kitchener by signalling a German submarine to sink the ship he was on. I know such little known history and like bringing it into the GMJ Books, then the reader walks away wiser even if not in complete agreement.
What was also an eye opener to me, seems today is a day of surprises, is that the South African Jewish Community is now (only now?) worried about their future role in South Africa. Well, they have good reason to be, why? Go and read the GMJ Books, it will open your eyes to the threat against them because we see more than what you think and what we see are patterns. And I know my own sphere, better than most, it is fascinating and often discussed as the characters do work with the “Jerusalem Water Works” (Mossad) now and then. Yep, it is interesting times.
