Mr. Antonovich has embarrassed himself and the community he represents with his self-serving attempt to score political points by jumping into a discussion for which he is clearly woefully underprepared. It would surprise me if he has read more than what Ms.Delmar has provided him. I also believe it would surprise Mr. Antonovich to learn that literally dozens of volumes have been written by notable scholars on the issue of Wagner and the Jews. His feeble attempt to become an arbiter of art in his community suggests that he is precisely the type of undereducated, party-line-toeing petty bureaucrat that so effectively managed the machinery of the National Socialist propaganda machine of the 1930s and 1940s. Mr. Antonovich, they would have loved you. You were just born in the wrong place at the wrong time. Schade.

I note that on his webpage, the second item listed in Mr. Antonovich's bio (after his birth info) is the fact that he is a member of the Lutheran Church. The following is excerpted from the Wikipedia ntry on Martin Luther. Really, Mr. Anonovich, do you have a clue about the issue you are championing?? Luther's other major works on the Jews were his 60,000-word treatise Von den Juden und Ihren Lügen (On the Jews and Their Lies), and Vom Schem Hamphoras und vom Geschlecht Christi (On the Holy Name and the Lineage of Christ), both published in 1543, three years before his death.[166] Luther argued that the Jews were no longer the chosen people but "the devil's people": he referred to them with violent, vile language.[167][168] Luther advocated setting synagogues on fire, destroying Jewish prayerbooks, forbidding rabbis from preaching, seizing Jews' property and money, and smashing up their homes, so that these "poisonous envenomed worms" would be forced into labour or expelled "for all time".[169] In Robert Michael's view, Luther's words "We are at fault in not slaying them" amounted to a sanction of murder.[170]
