To La Voz de Aztlan
Attention Hector Carreon

Dear Mr. Carreon et al:

I noticed that in your web page in which you urge the boycott of Israeli products, that you also list labels of companies that are Jewish owned or run, but are not Israeli companies.

To strengthen your boycott efforts, I thought of an idea for you:

You don't have to like Jews, but if you DON'T, I suggest that you boycott certain other Jewish products, like...

The Wasserman Test for syphilis discovered by Dr August Von Wasserman, a Jew.
The first effective drug to fight syphilis developed by Paul Ehrlich, a Jew.
Digitalis, discovered by Doctor Nuslin, a Jew.
Insulin which gave life to diabetics, discovered by Doctor Oskar Minkowski, a Jew.
The diagnostic skin test for diphtheria known as the Schick test, developed by Bela Schick, a Jew.
Vitamins, discovered by Doctor Funk, a Jew.
The antibiotic Streptomycin, discovered by Doctor Woronan, a Jew.
The Polio Pill known as Sabin Vaccine by Doctor Sabin, a Jew.
Another Polio Vaccine known as Salk Vaccine, by Doctor Jonas Salk. a Jew.
Hepatitis vaccine discovered by Baruch Blumberg, a Jew.
Crohn disease identified by Burrill Crohn, a Jew.
Alfred Hess, a Jew, discovered that vitamin C could cure scurvy.
Casimir Funk, a Jew, was the first to use vitamin B to treat beriberi

Go on, boycott!

Humanitarianism requires that Jews offer these gifts to all the people of the world, regardless of race, color or creed -- even bigots like you. If you do not want to accept these gifts, you can go ahead and turn them down, but I am warning you: You are not going to feel so good.

Fanatic consistency requires that bigots like you accept
Infantile Paralysis and
Tuberculosis as a matter of principal.

You want to be mad at Jews? Be mad! But I'm telling you, you ain't going to feel so good."

Hal Netkin, a Jew.
