Yes, Mike, we have Blood Ritual. There are two resellers offering it on Amazon: http://www.amazon.com/s/ref=nb_sb_noss? ... ood+ritual We supplied both sellers. I'd recommend you buy from the one who sells for $27 over the one offering it for $75. Same new book, same condition, from both sellers.Mike G wrote:Do you guys have this book that was available from NVB years ago? Or is Amazon my only option?
An Amazon review of BR from several years ago:
_Blood Ritual_ by Philip de Vier is a highly controversial book on the charged issue of Jewish ritual murders. It is published by the National Vanguard Books who dispense a wide variety of titles like this and other controversial literature. The cover illustration is a woodcut of shady looking men cutting a young woman's throat on March 29, 1899 in what was then the Austro-Hungarian Empire. An illustration inside shows bearded Middle Eastern-looking men drinking blood out of a child through straws. For many centuries, Christians (and some Muslims) have accused Jews of performing ritual murders on Christian children and symbolically re-crucifying Christ by desecrating communion wafers (defined as the literal body and blood of Christ according to Roman Catholic dogma). These incidents usually happened around the time of Easter or the Jewish feast of Purim, a celebration commemorating Jewish vengeance on adversaries from the Old Testament book of Esther in the month of March. I remember reading how the Nuremburg executions were carried out during this time of the year in 1946, and President Bush delivered his ultimatum to Saddam Hussein on Purim in 2003. De Vier presents his material in several sections and he covers a host of topics related to so-called "blood libels:" snuff films, child pornography, Jack the Ripper, Son of Sam, "vampires," sympathetic magic, Voodoo sacrificial cults and other strange phenomena. First, he establishes what exactly he is discussing and researching in an introduction and from there shows how he will examine the evidence from the material he gathered from studying these bizarre and far-flung cases. De Vier comes to the following conclusion: there has been a series of ritual murders in various countries, committed by various individuals over a period of many centuries dating from medieval times to possibly the present. Generally a murdered body was found with strange cut marks on it near the times of Easter/Passover and Purim which sometimes let to outbreaks of violence against Jews. The official line of this story is that none of these victims (some of whom were revered as Saints until recently in the Roman Catholic Church) were victims of Jewish violence and that attacks on Jews were motivated by irrational Christian anti-Semitism and racial hatred. To de Vier's credit, he acknowledges the speculative, open-for-debate nature of this conclusion because it is somewhat (or very, depending on the reader's biases) controversial and inflammatory. Much of the book consists of de Vier's timeline of ritual murder cases. He draws up a "profile" of those likely to commit ritual crime: they tend to have strong motives of vengeance, power drive and psychosexual perversion. De Vier then details ritual murder cases dating from the sacrifice of Jepthah's daughter (Judges 11) and the human sacrifice cult of Moloch dating from the 900s B.C. to a Brazilian and Italian child pornography ring bust that had international connections in September 2000. The timeline has an encyclopedia of ritual murder cases including the famous cases of Simon of Trent, a young boy found murdered in Italy in 1475 and later revered as a saint by the Church in Italy and William of Norwich, an English boy found with marks suggesting he had been nailed to a cross in 1144. Other famous cases are covered including the 1899 murder of a young woman in Hungary, Agnes Hurza and the 1840 murder of Fr. Thomas, a Catholic priest in Damascus, Syria. The Fr. Thomas case received very wide press attention worldwide and provoked an investigation by Ottoman authorities. However, the issue was quickly silenced by powerful Jewish diplomatic interests in Europe. There is also a series of very interesting cases surrounding Jack the Ripper's murders in London during the 1890s. The victims of the Ripper were butchered with strange cuts and ritual marks. Scrawled along the walls near one of the murders was a cryptic message that was quickly erased by the police: "The Jewes are not the men to be blamed for nothing." The "Son of Sam" killings in New York during the 1970s had ritualistic overtones. David Berkowitz said he was inspired by a demon to kill and the murders may have been committed by more than one gunman based on some evidence. De Vier's book also covers the substantial literature produced about ritual murders including the British Nazi Arnold Leese's pamphlet _Jewish Ritual Murder_ and articles published by one of Hitler's propagandists, Julius Streicher, in the newspaper _Der Sturmer_. A central point to de Vier's analysis is the fact that ritual murder has existed in many other cultures (or if not cultures, then outright cults and secret societies) and therefore could be practiced by Jews against Christians and other opponents. He cites the medieval Islamic Hashishim (Assassins), India's Thuggee cult (Thugs), Aztecs, ancient Carthage (a Semitic people descended from Hebrew cousins, the Phoenicians) and African tribes where cannibalism and human sacrifice have been practiced, along with vampirism and related phenomena in the US today. De Vier also relates another curious example of villagers in Germany sacrificing a child so a bridge would be safe from collapse during the 1800s as a totally irrational relapse back into "Teutonic atavism." De Vier takes the contemporary, post Vatican II Roman Catholic hierarchy to task for succumbing to Jewish pressure by disbanding the official cult status/Sainthood of victims of ritual murder, notably Simon of Trent. He calls Vatican II "heretical" because it disavowed thousands of years of traditional imprecations against the Jews in a misguided attempt to "modernize" itself and become "politically correct." Of course, if the reader does not accept as a priori the Jewish control of the media (or if not "Jewish" control then control by interests sympathetic to organized Judaism and opposed to Christianity) this book will prove extremely offensive. De Vier is careful to note that some accusations were probably false and the results of paranoia and hysteria. However, any reader interested in the dark, conspiratorial, occult and grotesque side of human nature will find much of interest nonetheless.
