    Please read the book ” American Betrayal” first, the read “Disinformation” second for the truth that’s been buried by Jimmy Carter until now. It proves all American KKK democrats are Commies of the very worst kind. Sorry, but see most all black American in our government leading the charge. One look at black America and you see pure Communism destroying them. As a true American Jew, I and many are disgusted by 70%/ about 7M that promote Communism and Sharia laws. I’m also disgusted to see all the lefty Commies in our churches being guilty as charged. Europe seems one of the very early Antisemitics all by themselves and now estimated at over 150M as of today. Just cannot say enough about the slimy limey’s over there. Please read these books because The only thing new is the true history we don’t know.
