Critical analyses specialty in major antisemitic texts for linguistic features and language structures, which are so persuasive that they convince even the well educated to believe their conspiracy theories and often result in devastatingly violent effects on Jews individually and collectively. My master's thesis proved conclusively that the linguistic features and language structures of an antisemitic writing in pamphlet form was purposely and systematically constructed in such a manner as to incite the Kishinev Pogrom of 1903 and set the stage for the Final Solution.
Other interests include the Shoah, Israeli Wars, and Israeli military history and weaponry and I have attended classes and conferences at Yad Vashem and taken courses sponsored by the Israeli Ministry of Defense in those areas.
Current academic research toward a PhD, which will expand extensively upon the master's dissertation.
