You will get a small historical Xmas present soon. The present will explain the Goulston Street Graffito.

And on that Christmas bombshell...!

Hi,

because I want to prepare the post and think it through.

QUOTE=Michael W Richards;403662

Quote:
For me the translation that makes most sense is one based on the premise that the writer was the killer in Mitre Square, but not in Berner Street. The author believes that Jews are not being held responsible for things they are doing, and suggests that "the Jews are not the men that will not be blamed for nothing.....and "for nothing" equals " for no reason".

Its anti-Semitic, and at the entrance to where 90 plus percent of the population is Immigrant Jew,...so that's why it was ordered erased.
Hi Michael,

as a matter of fact, there is no data showing us that "the author believes that Jews are not being held responsible for things they are doing".

That postulated "author" has no name, no address and no data which can connect him to the GSG.

But there was someone who produced data showing us that he had a connection to the GSG. It is an interesting connection and it is left in sources from the past to us.

This connection is not a signed letter where someone writes: I wrote the GSG. Why not?

Because if there was such a letter, the author of it would not have written the GSG.

Regards, Pierre

I get that. I've done that many times myself. I've just never posted commercials and promos for my upcoming post. I'd say most people here do it much the same way. Prepare the post...think it through.....post it. But, hey. Whatever works for you.

Hi Patrick,

it is not a "commercial" or a "promo". I have no interest in such things.

It is a source which is important for the case. Therefore, being able to give part of the content in this source to you is important. And therefore I also want this to be a special event.

I do not expect you to be happy when you get it and I do not expect everyone to understand it.

Regards, Pierre

Why would I be happy or unhappy? What are my thoughts on the matter? I'm not sure I've given them here. So, fill me in. Do you have some data from the historical sources that reveal what I'll think about it?

You have no interest in promos or commercials....but you "want this to be a special event".....so you post a promo for it. Okay. Well, the historical sources tell me that I am flat our breathless with anticipation, thanks to all the promoting you've done for your 'special event'!

Hi Pierre,

I suspect what you mean is a kind of "side-step" effect. Like cops are chasing somebody, pick up a clue (say that apron portion) and a bystander is asked, "Did you happen to see anyone dropped this?", and answers, "Yes, I saw a small man, in a hurry, wearing a trilby hat and he ran north up that block there!" Then, whenever the clue is discussed, it is referred to as "the trilby-hatted man" clue, after what the alleged witness to the running man said he saw. But we don't know if that "witness" was lying or not, nor why he or she said it. The dropped item (or written item) is interesting, but it is the possibility of someone on hand watching and passing it along that concerns us. Something like that?

Jeff
