Re: Theos-World HPB and the Nazi doctrines

I was away for a few weeks, without proper internet connection, so I respond
now. I am aware for some time that American industrialists funded Hitler's
army. I found this when I made a research in the Holocaust museum in
Jerusalem. Of course, no body is speaking about this, for one eventually
America brought about the destruction of the Nazi regime, and now Israel is
totally dependent on US aid. Both not so bad. I don't think that Theosophy
had anything to do with the Nazi doctrine; they could take anything and turn
it upside down, as people do all the time. Best wishes, Etzion
