Death threats to jury claimed by Jews never happened; were invented by Frank partisans years later
EDITOR’S NOTE: Jews are losing the debate on the Leo Frank case — the very case that sparked the creation of their “Anti-Defamation League.” Due to the efforts of the National Alliance and its allies, the truth about Frank’s guilt is all over the ‘Net, social media, and respected alternative media.
There is no contemporary source for the claim that mobs threatened the jury with death. No newspaper accounts mention such threats — and some of the papers were quite pro-Frank — and the jurymen specifically denied that they experienced any, inside or outside the courtroom. Frank’s own lawyers never complained of such threats, which surely would have been grounds for an instant mistrial and change of venue — which they never asked for. The evidence is overwhelming that Frank is guilty.

A GROUP OF lawyers and judges led by a rabbi gathered at a synagogue Sunday to say the state of Georgia should exonerate a Jewish businessman who was lynched 100 years ago for a murder they believe he didn’t commit—and for which they believe he was convicted out of fear of an anti-Semitic mob.
