The Big Lie of Six Million Jews?

It took Adolf Hitler six years to kill 6 million Jews in Europe. If Ahmadinejad is successful in his quest for nuclear weapons, he could kill 6 million Jews in Israel in about six minutes.

I appreciate the well-meaning intention of Mr. Ashley repeating the mindless mantra of "six million Jews" killed by Hitler, but it is simply NOT TRUE! Why mislead folks with that BIG LIE? Consider this and don't be afraid to let the truth set you free by doing some honest research:

2,000,000 to 4,000,000
Source: Cited by Yehuda Bauer in 1982 in his book, A History of the Holocaust. However, by 1989 Bauer revised his figure to 1,600,000. 1,600,000
Source: This is a 1989 revision by Yehuda Bauer of his earlier figure in 1982 of 2,000,000 to 4,000,000, Bauer cited this new figure on September 22, 1989 in The Jerusalem Post, at which time he wrote "The larger figures have been dismissed for years, except that it hasn't reached the public yet."

Mr. Bauer lived at Kibbutz Shoval when I was a volunteer there years ago. I had asked him about the infamous quote from Benjamin Franklin against Jews. He said it was spurious, although he added Benjamin Franklin was not a "friend of the Jews."

Yehuda Bauer is simply one of many who know the six million figure is a BIG LIE. I would hope that a professing Christian magazine would be interested in the plain truth and dare to share it - not propaganda.
