Thank you all Jewishgenners. You're a wonderful crowd, helpful, generous,
resourceful, and knowledgeable. I've had scores of responses >from you
all, so many, I can't reply to all. But thank you! thank you!

As I suspected, the author's name is faked. The item was first published
by a non-existent Sebastian Vivar Rodrigez on the website blog "Gentiuno"
on November 11, 2004 in
_http://www.gentiuno.com/articulo.asp?articulo=1865_
(http://www.gentiuno.com/articulo.asp?articulo=1865)

Gentiuno is said to be published in the USA in Spanish by a group
opposed to Hugo Chavez of Venezuela. It is said to be rightwing
and pro-Israel.

The article itself is quite brief. It is more anti-Islamist
than pro-Jewish and seems to use Jews and the Holocaust only to
emphasize its racist viewpoints. It is not something I would wish to
see decorating a memorial to my ancestors and family.

If you do want to pass it on (I'd rather you didn't) please do not
mention jewishgen as your source.
