Letter: Critics of Masons

Sir: While thanking you for your review (25 November) of my book The Freemasons, may I point out, in fairness to today's anti-masons, that I never compared their criticism of the Freemasons with the actions of the Fascists who murdered 6,000,000 Jews.

I wrote that the criticisms of the Freemasons today were very similar to the things that many people in Britain were saying about Jews 65 years ago; that they had stopped saying these things about the Jews since the Holocaust; and that I hoped that it would not be necessary for 6,000,000 Freemasons to be killed before people stopped saying these things about the Freemasons.

The people who murdered the 6,000,000 Jews were also violently against the Freemasons, and murdered many Freemasons as well as Jews.
