Prisoner of Peace
by assassins of the British Zionist Occupational Government, August
years ago he was murdered. Forty-two years earlier, standing before his
accusers, he uttered
regret nothing. If I were to begin all over again, I would act
again as I did—even if I knew that what awaited
me in the end was the stake at which I was to
be burned alive. It makes no difference what men may do to
me. One day I shall stand before the judgement seat
of the Eternal. To Him I shall answer; and I know that
He will pronounce me innocent."
He was known as the conscience of
the Movement. He stood closer to the Führer than any
other man. He
tried to stop a tragic war among Aryan kindred.
His name was—RUDOLF HESS.
On the 17th day of August, 1987
nearly a half century in a
lonely prison cell—he was foully murdered by the
powers of Darkness on this Earth.
And so, on this Day of Witness, we again pause to pay solemn
homage to the eternal memory of this hero and
martyr and pledge ourselves anew to the Holy Cause
for which he fought.
Martyr for Peace
Consider a man
so determined to stop the war that he risks his life to try.
Consider Rudolf Hess, deputy leader of the
As war between Germany
and Brittain intensified, Rudolf Hess despaired at the total lack of
peace negotiations. Hitler had several times proposed an honorable
end to the war and ardently desired a negotiated peace but German
diplomats were rebuffed repeatedly.
Deputy Fuhrer of Germany.
Hitler offered to resign if that
would assist the commencement of peace negotiations, but their efforts
met with no response.
Visions of long rows of coffins of
women and children haunted Rudolf Hess and getting peace negotiations
moving became his top priority.
It was discovered that British Prime
Minister, Winston Churchill, had forbidden his diplomatic corps to
entertain or forward any German peace proposals, even via neutral
The British Duke of Hamilton was
identified as a man sympathetic to the British "Peace Movement", who
had personal contact with King George. Many British subjects openly
opposed to the war had been imprisoned by Churchill, including a
British member of parliament.
Rudolf wanted to bypass Churchill and
take Hitler's peace proposals directly to the king, via the Duke.
It proved too difficult to set up a meeting in a neutral country and
therefore Rudolf decided to go to Scotland and do the job himself.
He thought the highest price he could pay
was his own death. This assumption was mistaken. The price he would pay
was much, much higher.
Messerschmitt flown by Rudolf Hess. When it ran out of fuel he bailed
out just a few kilometers from his target, an incredible feat of
navigation performed at night.
On 10 May, 1941, Rudolf Hess, Deputy
leader of the German Reich, set out on the most important mission of
his life. He left at night, in an unarmed Messerschmitt 110 fighter
plane from Augsburg and flew across the North Sea to Brittain. He was
determined to negotiate peace by bypassing Churchill and speaking
directly with the British king.
After a four-hour flight, evading
anti-aircraft fire and a persuing spitfire, he bailed out by parachute,
the first and last parachute jump of his life, in the darkness of
night, but broke his ankle on landing. This injury may have totally
altered history as he could not walk to his destination. Rudolf was
found and jailed.
How many millions of lives might have
been saved if he had been able to see the Duke timeously can now only
be speculated. It is not known if the King ever got to see Hitler's
peace proposals. Winston Churchill not only rejected the offer to open
peace negotiations, but kept Rudolf Hess as a prisoner in solitary
confinement despite the fact that he had come unarmed and presenting a
It might seem strange that Rudolf hoped
to be sent home after presenting Hitler's peace-offer, but there had
always been a time-honored practice of not harming the courier of an
honorable enemy. It was customary to send the messenger back with a
reply, whatever the result of the negotiations. But this millennia-old
custom ended with Churchill.
Rudolf would be imprisoned for life, so
that he could not speak out and embarrass the Allies. British
government files on him have been sealed until the year 2027.
He was incarcerated in Spandau, where
conditions were so terrible that a formal protest was made by French
Chaplain, Pastor Casalis in 1950. He charged: "It can safely be said
that Spandau has become a place of mental torture to an extent that
does not permit the Christian conscience to remain silent".

his final statement to the
Nuremburg court on August 31, 1946,
Rudolf Hess declared:
"I had the
privilege of working for many years of my life under the greatest son
my nation has brought forth in its thousand-year history. Even if I
could, I would not wish to expunge this time from my life.
I am happy
to know that I have done my duty toward my people, my duty as a German,
as a National Socialist, as a loyal follower of my Führer. I
what people may do, one day I shall stand before the judgment seat of
God Eternal. I will answer to Him, and I know that He will absolve me."
OPPOSED TO WAR WITH GERMANY
During World War 2,
hundreds of thousands of their own people were jailed by the Allies.
This included thousands of British people who found themselves victims
of suddenly drafted legislation known as "Regulation 18B". By this law
all people suspected of being against the war with Germany were rounded
up and jailed without any charges against them being necessary.
This legislation followed
the largest ever indoor meeting held in Britain when a crowd of over
20,000 people crammed into Earls Court in support of a peace meeting.
British Union members imprisoned were holders of every medal for valour
which could be awarded to British servicemen except the Victoria Cross
(one Blackshirt did hold the VC, but even Churchill shrunk from
throwing him into jail). Some Blackshirts were arrested while serving
in the Local Defence Volunteers and Civil Defence. Some Blackshirt
servicemen rescued at Dunkirk were arrested back in England. One
Blackshirt, an amateur yachtsman, was arrested immediately after
returning from Dunkirk where he had helped to evacuate British troops.
Men and women from all walks of life were rounded up. One notable
victim was a farmer, Jorian Jenks, who was Prospective British Union
candidate for Horsham, a pioneer of the ecology movement in Britain and
later a founder of the Soil Association.
There seems no
doubt, however, that many people involved in the operation of 18B
against innocent people were deeply ashamed. This is evidenced by the
fact that most public records relating to the detentions have been
deliberately destroyed. When the records were released under the Thirty
Year Rule, files of only 18 out of some 800 British Union detainees
were made available. Initially it was claimed that they had 'gone
missing'. Then it was admitted that they had been destroyed as 'of no
historical interest'. "
Churchill had thousands of Britons jailed
without trial for their suspected opposition to the war with Germany.

will become less indulgent as time goes on. There need be no hurry
about interviewing him, and I wish to be informed before any visitors
are allowed. He is to be kept in the strictest seclusion, and those in
charge of him should refrain from conversation.
The public will
not stand any pampering except for intelligence purposes with this
notorious war criminal."
“My dear ones,
I firmly believe that I shall return from the flight I
am about to make and that the flight will be crowned with success.
Should I not return, however, the goal I set myself was worth the
supreme effort. I am sure you all know me: you know I could not have
acted any other way.
Excerpt from a letter Rudolf
left behind for his family
By 1950 Winston Churchill
had changed his stance:
Reflecting upon the whole
of the story, I am glad not to be responsible for the way in which Hess
has been and is being treated. Whatever may be the moral guilt of a
German who stood near to Hitler, Hess had, in my view, atoned for this
by his completely devoted and frantic deed of lunatic benevolence. He
came to us of his own free will, and, though without authority, had
something of the quality of an envoy. He was a medical and not a
criminal case, and should be so regarded.
Nuremburg trials that sentenced Rudolf Hess, who could not have
committed a crime
because he was in a British jail during the war, the following are
Court Chief Justice Harlan Fiske Stone:
US prosecutor] Jackson is away conducting his high-grade lynching party
in Nuremberg. I don't mind what he does to the Nazis, but I hate to see
the pretense that he is running a court and proceeding according to
common law. This is a little too sanctimonious a fraud to meet my
Supreme Court Justice William O. Douglas
Allies at Nuremburg were guilty of "substituting power for principle...
I thought at the time and still think that the Nuremberg trials were
unprincipled. Law was created ex post facto to suit the passion and
clamor of the time."
Hess became the loneliest man on Earth, kept in Spandau, a prison built
for 600 prisoners, as the only prisoner until his murder by the British
government's assassins in August 1987 at the age of 93.
An autopsy proved that this old man had been strangled to death.
