In 2005 The Central Council of Jews in Germany presented Fischer with the Leo Baeck Award. Leo Baeck was the Chief Rabbi of Berlin during the Nazi-era, a Zionist, and head of the German branch of B'nai B'rith, a man who Adolf Eichmann said he wanted to call as a defence witness! During his acceptance speech Fischer said:
"It was Germans, top civil servants, who at the notorious Wannsee Conference here in Berlin in January 1942 planned the Shoah, who systematically organized and carried out the cold-blooded genocide of German and European Jewry. Had the Third Reich not been totally defeated in 1945, with all the devastation that entailed, the infamous machinery of genocide in Auschwitz and elsewhere would not have been stopped and destroyed and Europe would not have been liberated from the nightmare of National Socialism. That is the simple truth, the whole truth and for a German the bitter truth."
Fischer then went on to quote Thomas Mann, the traitorous German author—with a Jewish wife—who fled Germany in 1939 and became mixed up with New York's Jewish greuelpropagandists. The man who made a BBC radio broadcast in January 1942, informing Europe that Germany was gassing Dutch Jews. In November 1945, a Briton who'd made pro-German broadcasts was hanged for treason, but Thomas Mann, who committed the exact same offence, is today officially a hero in Germany.
Fischer quoted from a recording Thomas Mann made in the U.S., which was broadcast across Germany on May 8, 1945:
"The torture chamber into which Hitlerism made Germany has now had its thick walls broken down, revealing our iniquity to the eyes of the world. Commissions from far afield ... are presented with these .... scenes and report back home that this surpasses in horror anyone's wildest imaginings. "Our iniquity", my compatriots! For everything that is German, speaks German, writes German, has lived as a German is tarnished by the dishonour of what has been revealed. This was not the work of a mere handful of criminals, it was hundreds of thousands of a so-called German elite - men, young people, heartless women - who under the influence of insane doctrines took perverse pleasure in committing these evil deeds. ... Humanity recoils in horror. From Germany? Yes, from Germany."
Fischer went on to say that Israel is "indispensable" to Europe's security(!), and that in 1967, the Arabs attempted "to to wipe Israel off the Middle East map". Clearly referring to the Six Day War, when Israel launched a surprise attack on Egypt, destroying her entire air force whilst it was on the ground.
