In another story he published on 18 December in the same newspaper, Mr Steele indicated that the fall of Nanjing was an awful spectacle of butchery and confusion:
Patrols of Japanese soldiers moved through the streets, searched houses and arrested droves of people as suspected plainclothes soldiers. Few of them ever came back but those who did said their companions had been slaughtered without even a summary trial.

I witnessed one of these execution parties and I have seen the grim results of others. What is more difficult, I have had to listen to the wailing and sobbing of women pleading for the return of sons and husbands they will never see again.

THIS BOOK WILL BE PROFOUNDLY UNCOMFORTABLE TO READ. IT WAS profoundly uncomfortable to write. It tells the story of IBM's conscious involvement—directly and through its subsidiaries—in the Holocaust, as well as its involvement in the Nazi war machine that murdered millions of others throughout Europe.

In June 1939, just months before World War II broke out, Khalid al-Qarqani, a leading Saudi governmental minister and a personal envoy of King ibn Saud, met with Hitler in Berlin to coordinate a six-million-reichsmark weapons purchase. When Hilter railed that it was his intent to expel all the Jews from Germany, Qarqani repeated King ibn Saud's oft-expressed view that Mohammad had enforced the identiclal policy in Arabia centuries before.

Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the Labour Party (UK) = anti-Semitism ?

... and Corbyn himself has been accused of anti-Jewish bigotry. When facing such criticism, the British Labour leader has offered the defense that he is anti-Israel, not anti-Jewish. But Corbyn’s words and deeds demonstrate that he often uses his virulent anti-Zionism as a cover for his soft anti-Semitism.
- Professor Mr Alan M. Dershowitz (the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law at Harvard Law School)

anti-Semitism 反猶太主義,排猶主義

been accused of ... 被指控 ...

bigotry: the fact of having and expressing strong, unreasonable beliefs and disliking other people who have different beliefs or a different way of life

virulent 惡毒的,狠毒的

Zionism: a political movement that had as its original aim the creation of a country for Jewish people, and that now supports the state of Israel

Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the Labour Party (UK) = anti-Semitism ? (2)

Consider a speech Corbyn gave last year where he said that Jews are “no more responsible” for the actions of Israel than Muslims are for the actions of the Islamic State terrorist group. Moreover, Corbyn’s “affinity” for terrorist groups (avowed to the destruction of the nation state of the Jewish people) is also well documented. In 2009 Corbyn said: “it will be my pleasure and my honor to host an event in Parliament where our friends from Hezbollah will be speaking. I also invited friends from Hamas to come and speak as well.”
- Professor Mr Alan M. Dershowitz (the Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law at Harvard Law School)

affinity (尤指因為有相同的特徵而引起的)情投意合,喜愛,吸引

avow 聲明;宣稱;承認

well-documented 有詳細的記載

host 主辦(為一活動提供舉辦場所和其他必需品)

Hezbollah 真主黨

Hamas 哈馬斯

Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the Labour Party (UK) = anti-Semitism ? (3)

Corbyn himself has said that he is not an antisemite but rather opposed to Zionism. Generally speaking, it is easy to say you hate Israel but you don’t hate Jews. Even if this were true – and I am NOT sure that it is – the company that Corbyn keeps suggests that at best he gives a free pass to bigotry, racism and antisemitism within the ranks of his own party, and at worst, he espouses those same views. Indeed, Corbyn has been known to share speaking platforms and lead rallies with some of the most infamous Jew-haters. He has attended meetings hosted by Paul Eisen –a 9/ 11 conspiracy theorist and Holocaust DENIER who wrote a blog titled “My Life as a Holocaust Denier.” Corbyn has also been associated with Sheikh Raed Salah – who was convicted for incitement to violence and racism and has been known to perpetuate traditional blood libels about Jews and said that Jews were warned not to go to the Twin Towers on 9/11 – calling him a “very honored citizen” whose “voice must be heard.” Corbyn was also a paid contributor for Press TV, which is part of Iran’s tightly controlled media apparatus whose production is directly overseen by Iran’s antisemitic Supreme Leader.

Jeremy Corbyn, the leader of the Labour Party (UK) = anti-Semitism ? (4)

Many British voters are unaware of Jeremy Corbyn's antisemitic associations. Others know but don’t care. The hard left in Britain, especially among union activists and academics, include many knee jerk opponents of the nation state of the Jewish people and many supporters of academic and cultural boycotts of Israel. Many such supporters favor trade and engagement with such massive human rights offenders as PURIN'S Russia ... Indeed, it is antisemitic to single out only the nation state of the Jewish people – the Middle East’s only democracy and a nation with one of the world’s best records of human rights, the rule of law and concern for enemy civilians — for boycotts.
... The fact is that Jeremy Corbyn has NOT stemmed the tide of bigotry and anti-Jewish hate within the ranks of his party, but has played a big part in perpetuating it. British voters now have the opportunity to choose where they will go as a nation. Will they opt to move away from stability, rationality and tolerance— and toward simple mindedness, xenophobia and intolerance? I don’t know, but I hope they choose wisely.

But Mr Durdin vision soon changed:

Two days of Japanese occupation changed the whole outlook. Wholesale looting, the violation of women, the murder of civilians, the eviction of Chinese from their homes, mass executions of war prisoners and the impressing of able-bodied men turned Nanking into a city of terror.

Many Civilians Slain
The killing of civilians was widespread. Foreigners who traveled widely through the city Wednesday found civilian dead on every street. Some of the victims were aged men, women and children.

Policemen and firemen were special objects of attack. Many victims were bayoneted and some of the wounds were barbarously cruel.

Any person who ran because of fear or excitement was likely to be killed on the spot as was any one caught by roving patrols in streets or alleys after dusk. Many slayings were witnessed by foreigners. ...

Nanking's streets were littered with dead. Sometimes bodies had to be moved before automobiles could pass.

After describing the tragic episodes of Nanjing's capture, Mr Steele commented that:

the Japanese were bent on butchery. They were not to be content until they had slaughtered every soldier or official they could lay their hands on.

Those who surrendered got no mercy. They were marched off to the execution ground with the rest. There was no court-martial, no trial. As might be expected, hundreds of innocent civilians were arrested and massacred during the course of this reign of terror.

Mr Durbin described his observation of the mass executions:

The mass executions of war prisoners added to the horrors the Japanese brought to Nanking. After killing the Chinese soldiers who threw down their arms and surrendered, the Japanese combed the city for men in civilian garb who were suspected of being former soldiers.
In one building in the refugee zone 400 men were seized. They were marched off, tied in batches of fifty, between lines of riflemen and machine gunners, to the execution ground ...

Thousands of prisoners were executed by the Japanese. Most of the Chinese soldiers who had been interned in the safety zone were shot en masse. The city was combed in a systemic house-to-house search for men having knapsack marks on their shoulders or other signs of having been soldiers. They were herded together and executed ...
