Operation Texas

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Operation Texas was an alleged undercover operation to relocate European Jews to Texas, USA, away from Nazi persecution, first reported in a 1989 Ph.D. dissertation by Louis Stanislaus Gomolak at the University of Texas at Austin titled Prologue: LBJ's foreign-affairs background, 1908-1948.[1] The following are some of the key arguments of the dissertation:

Various details of Gomolak's dissertation have been cited by other historians.[2][3][6] In 2008, Larry Ben David began an online campaign to collect documentation to submit to Yad Vashem, the Holocaust Memorial Museum in Jerusalem, Israel to have LBJ awarded the title of Righteous Among the Nations, often referred to as a Righteous Gentile.[7]

Additional primary research on Operation Texas was done for a 1998 Houston Chronicle article[8] and a 2016 article on the website.[9]

More recently, many of the arguments of Gomolak's thesis have been disputed following extensive research by Claudia Wilson Anderson, an archivist at the Lyndon Baines Johnson Library and Museum.[10][11] Although his research materials (e.g., written interview notes, interview recordings and primary documents not located in archives) could support his arguments, Gomolak has not made them available for external review.[11]

[Narration] Have you ever suspected that you may have discovered a game law violation? There's a way to report them to state Game Wardens though a program called Operation Game Thief. [Lewis Rather] Operation Game Thief is the state's premiere crime stoppers reporting program for reporting hunting, fishing, water safety and other natural resource violations to Texas Parks and Wildlife Department's 1-800 number which is 1-800-792-GAME or 4263. Callers do not have to identify themselves. We actually issue them a five digit case number that they can refer to when they call back to check on a case. It's the same number we would use when we call to talk, to identify them. [Narration] Tips can earn callers cash rewards. [Lewis Rather] When they call in this information they're eligible for up to a thousand dollar reward for arrest and conviction of person violating any of these natural resource laws. We've given out over two hundred thousand dollars in the last several years. The conviction rate presently is over 90 per cent of all the calls that we receive that result in an arrest, also results in a conviction. [Narration] If you think you witness a violation let the Game Wardens enforce the law. [Lewis Rather] The best thing you can do is. Of course keep yourself safe. Do not approach the violators in any fashion. We're not asking you to do that, nor do we expect you to do that. What we would ask for you to do, if you can from a safe distance, is gather all information that you can. As description of the person obviously is very important, down to the color of the hair, the clothes that they might be wearing at the time, description of the vehicle; the make, the color, and if he can get a license plate number, again without getting too close, that is great. A location is extremely important. You know a Game Warden might be at one end of the county, he needs to know where the violation is specifically if possible, landmarks, either a specific building or creek or whatever the case may be, there may be another game Warden closer to that location than the one that received the call. [Game Warden] Ten-four, sixteen, ten-four. [Lewis Rather] Many times our wardens are en route to a violation and they might pass the violator on the way so it's good to know the direction of travel when they left the location of the violation. And of course, what they see took place. If it was fish, what did they put it into? What kind of bucket, ice chest? Where did they place it in the vehicle? So the Game Warden already knows that the resource that might be taken illegally is in a specific place or hidden from them out of sight in a specific place, all of it helps in getting that arrest and conviction. [Narration] Now there's a new way to report game law violations. [Lewis Rather] There's some brand new technology at Operation game Thief has recently brought aboard. It's called Tex-Tip 411. With this new technology a person can now text their violation into our dispatchers rather than have to make a phone call and the way that they would do that is they would go to the "To:" box in their text, put in 847411, down below in the actual text or language box they would begin their message with "tpwd" and continue on with their message and hit send. This will then send that information directly to our dispatcher who can communicate back by text in real time. The ability to text a violation now is probably, we feel, is going to greatly enhance our reward program and our crime reporting program because we believe there are going to be a lot more calls that are going to be generated because it's easier to do with a text in some remote areas than it is to get phone reception. [Narration] There's another side of Operation Game Thief that helps families of Game Wardens when they need it the most. [Lewis Rather] Operation Game Thief provides, through their funding a life insurance policy for the families of Game Wardens or Park Peace Officers, killed in the line of duty, therefore giving the ultimate sacrifice for protecting our resources for the citizens of the state. Operation Game Thief only receives from donations and gifts. WE also participate and hold three fund raisers a year. All of that money goes to back into the coffers to be able to provide rewards, and also grants to Law Enforcement division and to the Hunter Education division and other divisions within the agency.
