"He who hates, hates everyone." - Elie Wiesel

Above is the masthead of a local paper for the residents of Wilton, Connecticut, whose editor was clearly taken by this Wiesel quote he'd clipped from the "Meditation for the Nation" Wiesel wrote for the citizens of the United States in June 1996 following arson attacks on churches in Mississippi.

Wiesel's claim that: "Hate has no frontiers. He who hates, hates everyone,"  is somewhat revealing when you consider what he wrote elsewhere:

"There is a time to love and a time to hate; whoever does not hate when he should, does not deserve to love when he is able. [...] Every Jew, somewhere in his being, should set apart a zone of hate—healthy, virile hate—for what the German personifies and for what persists in the German. To do otherwise would be a betrayal of the dead."

  1. Elie Wiesel, the shoahmaster number one, the Bernie Madoff of Shoah business. It would be the duty of german government to confront this liar: Show your f....g tattoo, if you have one!
