QUOTATIONS ABOUT THE JEWS
BY THE JEWS THEMSELVES
What is the basis of Judaism? A practical passion and greed for profit. To what can we reduce his (the Jew’s) religious worship? To extortion. What is his real God? Cash!
Karl Marx, in the
British Guardian, July-August, 1924.
Jewish history has been tragic to the Jews and no less tragic to the neighboring nations who have suffered them. Our major vice of old as of today is parasitism. We are a people of vultures living on the labor and the good nature of the rest of the world.
Read for yourself the story of the progress of Jewry through Europe and America. Wherever they come they are welcomed, permitted to settle down, and join in the general business of the community. But one by one the industries of the country close to them because of unfair practices – until, it being impossible to hold in check the wrath of a betrayed people, there is violence and, inevitably, an ignominious ejection of the whole race from the land. There is not a single instance when the Jews have not fully deserved the bitter fruit of their persecutors.
We come to the nations pretending to escape persecution, we the most deadly persecutors in all the wretched annals of man.
It is my honest belief that nothing the Jew does in America is essential to its welfare. On the contrary, a great deal of what the American Jew does is subversive of America’s best interests.
We see the Jew in business as promoter, money-lender, salesman par excellence, the
Page 213 ^
author and Chief instigator of a system of credit by which a nation-wide usury rises like a Golem with a million hands on a million throats, to choke the honour and the freedom of movement of hard working people.
The Jew is unclean and he makes unclean any place which he learns to call home even temporarily. It is a conclusion that comes to me out of the limited experience of my own life among the Jews.
There would not be so much harm in the Jews taking in such immense droves to the practice of the cardinal professions if they approached them in the proper spirit. But the Jew does not, cannot, turn to the law with anything like reverence for the profession or for its splendid traditions.
The attitude of a young Jew towards his profession is really like that of a gangster towards a new racket. The real end is the amount of money it is likely to yield him in exchange for. the smallest investment of labout and enthusiasm.
What becomes. of the young Jews who cannot attain one of the professions, have not the money with which to buy a news stand or the mental resourcefulness to create a selling line? Most of them remain on the street corners of their neighbourhoods and become the petty thieves, hold-up-men, strikebreakers, backstore crapshooters, street corner mashers and petty racketeers of every peaceful community in America.
I have no doubt that the presence of a Jew in a theatre is the one great impediment to the development of the drama on its more spiritual side. You have only to glance at the history of the theatre to realise that the art of play-writing and the arts allied with it flourished only where the Jews were not in a position to interfere with them. In America, the Jew is in the theatre and on top of it. For the Jew, the theatre means only two things, an easy way to make money,
Page 214 ^
and a woman-market. The house-of-call gets its recruits from the theatrical agent who, nineteen out of twenty instances, is a Jew. The surplus of these delightful things is shipped out, with our over-production of cotton, potatoes and copper, to China, Japan, Panama, South America and every port-of-call in the obscure regions of the Pacific Ocean. In spite of the talents of artistes, the gigantic monument to a stupid, obscene industry (cinema), reared on one of the busiest corners of the world, resembles, seen from afar, the figure of the humped Jew.
The disease is sort of moral gonorrhea known as Judaism, and seems to be, alas, incurable.
Samuel Roth, Jews Must Live.
For the question of the Jews and their influence on the world, past and present, cuts to the root of all things, and should be discussed by every honest thinker ... There is scarcely an event in modern Europe which cannot be traced back to the Jews ... All latter-day ideas and movements have originally sprung from a Jewish source for the simple reason that the Semitic idea has finally conquered and entirely subdued this only apparently irreligious universe of ours ... Jews are the inventors of the international idea. But no less than Bolshevist Ecstasy and Financial Tyranny can National Bigotry be finally followed back to a Jewish source – are not they the inventors of the Chosen People Myth, and is not this obsession part and parcel of the credo of every modern nation, however small and insignificant it may be?
Dr. Oscar Levy, in the preface of George Pitt-Rivers’
The World Significance of the Russian Revolution,
pages v - vi.
Page 215 ^
To live for 2,000 years in a state of permanent rebellion against all the surrounding populations, to insult their customs, their language, and their religions, is a monstrosity .... when it is so easy to avoid contempt, hatred and the opprobrium of twenty centuries, it is madness.
The instinct of property, resulting from the attachment to the soil, does not exist for the Semites – those nomads – whomever possessed and would never possess the land. Therefore their indisputably communist tendencies since the farthest antiquity.
One has only to mention the names of the great Jewish revolutionaries of the 19th and 20th centuries, the Karl Marxes, the Lassalles, the Eisners, the Bela Kuhns, the Trotskys, the Leon Blums, to thus enumerate the names of the theoreticians of modern socialism ... The Jews have given many leaders to the maximalist movement and have played a considerable part in it.
The Jewish tendencies toward communism, apart from all material co-operation to party organizations, what a striking confirmation they find in the aversion that a great Jew, a great poet. Heinrich Heine, felt for the Roman Law! The subjective causes, the passional causes of the revolt of Rabbi Akiba and Bar Kocheba in the year 70 A.D., against the Pax Roman and the Jus Romanum, understood and, felt, passionately, subjectively, by a. Jew of the 19th century who, apparently, had kept no link with his race.
And the Jewish revolutionaries and Jewish communists who fight against the principle of private property, the staunchest monument of which is the Codex Juris Civilis of Justinian and Vulpian, are they doing anything else than their ancestors who resisted and Titus? In fact, they are the speaking dead.
Kadmi Cohen, Nomads, p. 85, etc.

And once the revolutionary spirit spreads to lands where we were more numerous, we did not merely die in the revolutions; we helped to start them. No agitators did more to bring on the Revolution of 1848 than those two Jews, Heinrich Heine and Ludwig Borne. No names are more illustrious in the history of early Socialism than those of two other Jews, Karl Marx and Ferdinand Lassalle. It was a Jew, Leon Trotzky, who led the Red Army which saved the Communist cause in Russia. It was a Jew Karl, Liebknecht, aided by a Jewess, Rosa Luxemburg, who led the Sparticist insurrection in Germany. It was a Jew, Bela Kun, who set up the short-lived Red regime in Hungary. It was a Jew, Kurt Eisner, who led the Socialist Putsch in Bavaria. Throughout the past century every effort to overthrow privilege has engaged the support of Jews. In every land those who are known as the Children of Jacob have been the most devoted Jacobins.
Rabbi Lewis Browne,
How Odd of God, pages 207-208.
When the Jew gives his thought, his devotion, to the cause of the workers and of the dispossessed, of the disinherited of the world, the radical quality within him goes to the roots of things, and in Germany he becomes a Marx and a Lassalle, a Haas and an Edward Bernstein; in Austria he becomes a Victor Adler and a Friedrich Adler, in Russia, a Trotsky. Just take for a moment the present situation in Russia and in Germany. The revolution set creative forces free, and see what a large company of Jews was available for immediate service. Socialist Revolutionaries and Mensheviki, and Bolsheviki, Majority and Minority Socialists – whatever they be called – Jews are to be found among the trusted leaders and the routine workers of all these revolutionary parties.V

Rabbi Judah L. Magnes, in a
New York address, 1919.
The revolution reminds us anew of the importance of the Jewish question because the Jews are the driving element of revolution.
Moritz Rappaport, on the
1918 revolution in Germany.
The revolutionary spirit is inherent in the Jew. Throughout history the spirit of the Jew has always been revolutionary and subversive, but subversive with the purpose of building upon the ruins. It is progressive and evolutionary; even in its first national establishment it contained the seeds of universalism which were destined to blossom forth, and bear fruit in the ages to come.
Dr. Angelo S. Rappaport,
Pioneers of the Russian Revolution,
Thus it would seem as if the grievance of the anti-Semite were well founded; the Jewish spirit is essentially a revolutionary spirit, and consciously or otherwise, the Jew is a revolutionist. The tendencies of his nature and the direction of his sympathies made it inevitable that the Jew should play an important part in the revolutions of history; and such a part he has not failed to play.
Bernard Lazare, Antisemitism, Its History
and Causes, page 298.
When we sink, we become a revolutionary proletariat, the subordinate officers of all revolutionary parties; and at the same time, when we rise, there rises also our terrible power of the purse.

Paole-Zionism goes on its task in Russia, in Palestine and elsewhere. In this very hour it appears as the unique international proletarian party. One of its fractions joins the Communist International, the other joins the Socialist International.
Throughout its autonomous existance, the Jewish people has experienced many forms of government. But neither the fatherly dictatorship of great Moses, nor the monarchy ruled by a religious constitution, nor the republic of the faithful under the presidency of High Priests, nor the despotism of the last kinglets leaning on Rome could suit that people of dreamers. Jews always had a government, but they always endured it.
In fact, Jews could not maintain their State among the States of antiquity, and fatally had to become the revolutionary ferments of the world.
Elie Eberlin, The Jews of Today,
pages 24, 143 & 184.
The hatred of Czarism against the Jews was justified because, from the sixties onwards in all revolutionary parties the Government had to deal with the Jews as the most active members.
Russian State Papers, 1925.
The Jews were in the vanguard of the Russian Revolutionary movement before the fall of Czarism, and their services in the early days of the heroic struggle of the Proletarian Revolution are acknowledged by every historian.
William Zuckerman, The Jew in Revolt.
The Jews provided a particularly high percentage of the revolutionary movement.

Revolution, delivered in Zurich, published in
Lenin on the Jewish Question, page 6.
The Russian Revolution was made by Jews. We have created secret societies, planned the Reign of Terror. The revolution succeeded by our convincing propaganda and our mass assassinations, in order to form a government truly ours.
M. Hermalin, in New York speech, 1917.
The revolt in Georgia (Caucasus) was staged by Rothschild.
The Jewish Humanite (Paris) September, 1924.
The revolution in Russia was a Jewish revolution, a crisis in Jewish history. It is a Jewish revolution because Russia is the home of about half the Jews of the world, and an overturning of its despotic government must have a very important influence on the destinies of the millions living there and on the many thousands who have recently emigrated to the other countries. But the revolution in Russia is a Jewish revolution also because Jews are the most active revolutionists in the Tsar’s empire.
The Maccabean, Jewish Zionist organ.,
(N.Y.) Nov., 1905.
We made revolutions, and ran as eternal God seekers ahead of the masses of the people. We gave to the international proletariat a second Bible, one that was adequate to the times and we aroused the passions of the third estate. The Jew, Marx from Germany, declared war on capitalism and the Jew, Lassalle, organized the massae of the people in Germany itself. The Jew,

Edward Bernstein, popularized the ideology, Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg, called the Spartacist movement to life. The Jew, Kurt Eisner, created the Bavarian Soviet Republic and was her first, and last, president. And again the German nation rose up, rebelled. She wanted to forge her own destiny, determine the future of-her children – and she should not have been blamed for it.
Rabbi Manfred Reifer, in Czernowitz Allgemeine
Zeitung, September 2, 1933.
The German Revolution is the achievement of the Jews: the liberal democratic parties have a great number of Jews as their leaders, and the Jews play a predominant role in the high Government offices.
Jewish Tribune, July 5, 1922.
There is one way to abolish the capitalistic state, and that is to smash it by force: This means civil war.

Col. E. Mandel House, Philip Dru: Administrator.
Comrades of the Revolution, I have waited and served all my life for this hour. My brother died for it. Within the next few months, in Russia, we shall sweep out our oppressors on a tide of blood. And then Germany, Italy, France, England shall follow. In ten years from today, perhaps, the whole world shall be free, and the people shall possess the earth.1
V.I. Lenin, quotedin Herbert T. Fitch’s
Traitors Within, page18.
1The term “the people” when used by Jews refers exclusively to the Jewish people, Jews consider non-Jews animals, See Chapter 8, arid also see The Protocols.
The Jewish people, considered as a whole, will itself be its own Messiah. Its sovereignty over the world will be reached by means of the unification of the other human races, the elimination of frontiers and monarchies, which are the ramparts of particularism, and by means of the institution of a world republic which will grant everywhere civil rights to the Jews. In this new organization of humanity the sons of Israel willbecome everywhere, without meeting an obstacle, the directing element, especially if they are successful in bringing the proletarian masses under the direction of some of their own number. The governments of the peoples included in this world republic, with the aid of the victorious, proletariat, all will fall without difficulty into Jewish hands. Private property will then be strangled by the Jewish directors, who will administer
Page 222 ^
the state patrimony everywhere. Thus the promise of the Talmud will be fulfilled, that is, the promise that the Jews, at the arrival of the Messiah, will possess the key to the wealth of all the peoples of the earth.
Baruch Levy, in letter to Karl Marx.
There is a plan “of hell” to disorganize at one blow Christian society and the beliefs of the Jews, then with this double organization to bring about a state of things where, religiously speaking, there will be neither Christian nor Jew, but only men stripped of divinity, and where, politically speaking the Christian will become, if not the slave, at least the inferior of the Jew, the master .... At the hour in which we hold the pen, we see this plan unrolling itself in sombre horizons and great funeral lines.
Abbe Joseph Lemann, L‘Entree des Israelites
dans la Societe Francaise (1886).
(The Abbe broke away from Judaism.)
We must in a measure redeem the Jews and remake the Gentiles. That is what the Communists are trying to do in Russia, and because of their determination and monstrous energy they may actually effect it in three generations.
Rabbi Lewis Browne, How Odd of God,
A Jewish State would be a “Hague” which could and would command the attention and govern the thought of the world.
.... There have been many of us who for many years have seen in the Hebrew laws, the elements of the social regeneration of the world.
A rationalized Hebrew State founded
Page 223 ^
on Hebrew fundamental laws, ethical, social, sanitary, and dietary, and all the rest, would be a working laboratory of social regeneration, which would excite breathless attention.
A.A. Berle, Jr.,
The Significance of the Jewish State.
The time has come – one thing we want – to show ourselves for what we are – a nation amidst the nations – money princes, princes of intellect. – A sigh will go up from the whole earth – And the armies will tremble as they listen to the wisdom which dwells in theJews.
Who does not know what the glands in the human body represent? Now in the modern community of nations the Jews have in wise self-protection settled on the glands. These glands are: Exchanges, banks, ministries, daily papers. – Publishers, settlement commissions, insurance companies, hospitals, peace palaces.
There are some publicans and sinners, savants and professors who assert there is no Jewish question. – Ask that young street urchin, he knows better. – Out of warlike ambition he is anti-Semitic, the lout. Of course the Jewish nation should possess international representation and have its own territory.
Do not however believe that the Jews of Western Europe will move one step from the spot. – Apparently everything will stay the same, yet all will be quickly changed. – Jerusalem will. become, the new papacy. – Jerusalem will ,be as a busy spider, a spinning spider in a web whose threads of electricity and gold glisten over the world. The centre of this golden web to which allthreads run is Jerusalem.
Louis Levy, from his poem
recited by Besekoow.
Page 224 ^
Nations will gather together to bring their homage to the people of God; the whole fortune of nations will pass into the hands of the Jewish people, they will march behind the Jewish .people, in chains as captives, and will prostrate before it; kings will bring up its sons, and princesses will suckle its children. Jews shall command nations; they will call to them peoples which they do not even know, and peoples which know them will run after them. The riches of the sea and the wealth of nations will come by themselves to the Jews. Peoples and realms that will not serve Israel will be destroyed. The Chosen People will drink the milk of nations and suck the breast of kings, eat the fortunes of nations and dress in their magnificence. Jews will live in plenty and joy, their happiness will be ceaseless, their hearts will rejoice, they will grow like grass. Jews will be a race blessed by God, the priests and servants of God and their whole people will be a nation of pious. The issue of Jews and their name will be eternal, the smallest among them will multiply by the thousands and the lowest will become a great nation, God will seal with them an eternal covenant. He will reign anew upon them, and their power over men will be such that, according to the accepted expression, they will walk by great strides on the heights of the earth. Nature itself will be transformed into a sort of paradise on earth, it will be the golden age of humanity.
Isador Loeb, Le Problem Juif.
Our race has given the world a new prophet, but he has two faces and bears two names; on the one side, his name is Rothschild, leader of all capitalists, and an the other side, Karl Marx, the apostle of those who want to destroy the others.

Tidskrift, (Sweden) #57, 1929.
Page 225 ^
In this new organization of humanity the sons of Israel, spread over the surface of the globe, will become everywhere without opposition the directing element, especially if they succeed in imposing upon the working classes the firm control of some of those amongst them. The Governments of the Nations forming this universal republic will all pass without effort into Jewish hands under cover of the victory of the proletariat. Private property will then be suppressed by the Rulers of the Jewish Race, who will everywhere control the public funds. Thus will be realized the promise of the Talmud – that when the time of the Messiah will arrive the Jews will possess the goods of all the people of the earth.
Karl Marx, correspondence.
Remember my children, that all the earth must belong to us, Jews, and that the Gentiles being mere excrements of animals, must possess nothing.
Mayer Amschel Rothschild, to his ten children,
quoted in Count Cherep-Spiridovich’s
The Secret World Government, page 94.
The modern socialist movement is for the greater part a work of the Jews; the Jews sealed on it the imprint of their brains, the Jews also played a prominent part in the leadership of the first socialist republics. However, most of the socialist leaders had drawn away from Judaism; but the part they played did not depend from them alone; in them was subconsciously operating the old eugenitic principle of Mosaism, the blood of the old apostolic people was living in their brains and social temper ....
The present world socialism is but the
Page 226 ^
first stage of the accomplishment of Mosaism, the beginning of the world realization announced by our prophets ....
It is only when there will be a League of Nations and when its allied armies are used efficiently for the protection of all peoples, that we may hope the Jews to be able of developing without fetter their national state in Palestine, and it is only when we have a League of Nations well saturated with the socialist spirit that we can enjoy our international as well as necessities.
Therefore all Jewish groups, whatever they be, Zionists or adepts of the Diaspora, have a vital interest in the victory of socialism; they must strive not only as for a principle, not only for its identity with Mosaism, but also for tactics.
Alfred Nossig, Integrales Judentum.
The principal end, which is Hebrew world-domination, is not yet reached. But it will be reached and it is already closer than the masses of the so-called Christian States imagine. Russian Czarism, the German Empire and militarism are overthrown, all peoples are being pushed towards ruin. This is the moment in which the true domination of Jewry has its beginning.
Judas Schulduch, The Wise Men of Zion.
We will attract the proletariat by gold and enticement; they will assume the task of annihilating Christian capitalism.
We will promise the workers wages of which they have never dared to dream, but we shall also raise the price of necessaries, so that our profit will be even greater.
In this way we will prepare the way for revolutions which Christians themselves will make and of which we ourselves shall reap the fruits.

Grand Rabbi Simeone ben Ihude.
Motto: “All Jews for one and one for all”.
The union which we desire to found will not be a French, English, Irish or German union, but a Jewish one, a universal one. Other peoples and races are divided into nationalities; we alone have not co-citizens, but exclusively co-religionaries.
A Jew will under no circumstances become the friend of a Christian or a Moslem before the moment arrives when the light of the Jewish faith, the only religion of reason, will shine all over the world.
Scattered amongst other nations, who from time immemorial were hostile to our rights and interests, we desire primarily to be and to remain immutably Jews.
Our nationality is the religion of our fathers, and we recognize no other nationality.
We are livingin foreign lands, and cannot trouble about the mutable ambitions of countries entirely alien to us, while our own moral and material problems are endangered.
The Jewish teaching must cover the whole earth. Israelites: No matter where fate should lead – though scattered all over the earth, you must always consider yourselves members of a Chosen Race.
If you realize that the faith of your Fathers is your only patriotism,–
– if you recognize that, notwithstanding the nationalities you have embraced, you always remain and everywhere form one and only nation,–
– if you believe that Jewry only is the one and only religious and political truth,–
Page 228 ^
– if you are convinced of this, you, Israelites of the Universe –
– then come and give ear to our appeal and prove to us your consent: ....
Our cause is great and holy, and its success is guaranteed. Catholicism, our immemorial enemy, is lying in the dust, mortally wounded in the head.
The net which Israel is throwing over the globe of the earth is widening and spreading daily, and the momentous prophecies of our Holy Books are at last to be realized. The time is near when Jerusalem will become the house of prayer for all nations and peoples, and the banner of Jewish mono-deity will be unfurled and hoisted on the most distant shores. Let us avail ourselves of all circumstances. Our might is immense – learn to adopt this might far our cause. What have you to be afraid of? The day is not distant when all the riches and treasures of the earth will become the property of the children of Israel.

Today the Gentile Christians who claim of holy right have been led in the wrong path. We, of the Jewish Faith have tried for centuries to teach the Gentiles a Christ never existed, and that the story of The Virgin and of Christ is, and always has been, a fictitious lie. In the near future, when the Jewish people take over the rule of the United States, legally under God Jehovah, we will create a new education system, proving that Jehovah is the only one to follow, and proving that Christ story a fake ....

Zionism can be considered as a touchstone .... The Jew is not satisfied with de-Christianising, he Judaises: he destroys the Catholic or Protestant Faith, he provokes indifference, but he imposes his idea of the world, of morals and of life upon those whose faith he ruins: he works at his age-old task, the annihilation of the religion of Christ.

Why should we believe in God? – We hate Christianity and christians. Even the best of them must be our worst enemies. They preach love of one’s neighbor, and pity, which is contrary to our principles. Christian love is a hindrance to the revolution. Down with love of one’s neighbor; what we want is hatred. We must know how to hate, for only at this price can we conquer the universe ....

One of the finest things ever done by the mob was the crucifixion of Christ. Intellectually it was a splendid gesture. But trust the mob to bungle.

this accounts for the decline of nations, and their intellectual and moral decadence: they are like a human body which suffers from the intrusion of some foreign element which it cannot assimilate and the presence of which brings on convulsions and lasting disease. By his very presence the Jew acts as a solvent; he produces disorders, he destroys, he brings on the most fearful catastrophes. The admission of the Jew into the body of the nations has proved fatal to them; they are doomed for having received him .... The entrance of the Jew into society marked the destruction of the State, meaning by State the Christian State.

The advice of the Grand Satraps and Rabbis is the following;
1. As for what you say that the King of Spain (i.e., Ferdinand) obliges you to become Christians: do it, since you cannot do otherwise.
2. As for what you say about the command to despoil of your property: make your sons merchants that they may despoil, little by little, the Christians of theirs.
3. As for what you say about making attempts on your lives: make your sons doctors and apothecaries, that they may take away Christians’ lives.
4. As for what you say of their destroying your synagogues: make your sons canons and clerics in order that they may destroy their churches.
Page 233 ^
5. As for the many other vexations you complain of: arrange that your sons become advocates and lawyers, and see that they always mix in affairs of State, that by putting Christians under your yoke you may dominate the world and be avenged on them.
6. Do not swerve from this order that we give you because you will find by experience that humiliated as you are, you will reach the actuality of power.

He said that during the Japanese-Russian war he was in Tokio (Tokyo), and that he was permitted to make visits among the 12,000 Russian prisoners in Japanese hands at the end of the first year of the war. He had conceived the idea of putting revolutionary propaganda into the Russian army.
The Japanese authorities favored it and gave him permission. After which he sent to America for all the Russian revolutionary literature to be had. He said that one day Dr. Nicholas Russell came to him in Tokio (Tokyo), unannounced and said that he had been sent to help the work”
“The movement was financed by a New York banker you all know and love,” he said, referring to Mr. Schiff, “and soon we received a ton and a half of Russian revolutionary propaganda. At the end of the war 50,000 Russian officers and men went back to their country ardent revolutionists. The Friends of Russian Freedom had sowed 50,000 seeds of liberty in 100 Russian regiments. I do not know bow many of these officers and men were in the Petrograd fortress last week, but we do not know what part the army took in the revolution.”
Then was, read a telegram from Jacob H. Schiff, part of which is as follows: “Will you say for me to those present at tonight’s meeting how deeply I regret my inability to celebrate with the Friends

Mein leetel Russian Revolution has succeeded at last.
Jacob H. Schiff, quoted in E.N. Sanctuary’s
Are These Things So?, p. 362.
Without exaggeration, it may be said that the great Russian social revolution was indeed accomplished by the hands of the Jews. Would the dark, oppressed masses of the Russian workmen and peasants have been able to throw off the yoke of the Bourgeoisie by themselves?
No, it was precisely the Jews who led the Russian proletariat to the dawn of the International and not only had led, but are also now leading the Soviet cause which remains in their hands. We may be quiet as long as the chief command of the Red Amy is in the hands of Comrade Leon Trotsky. It is true that there are no Jews in the ranks of the Red Army as far as privates are concerned. But the Committee and Soviet Organizations, as commissars, the Jews, are gallantly. leading the masses of the Russian proletariat to victory. It is not without reason that during the elections to all Soviet institutions the Jews are winning by an overwhelming majority. The symbol of Jewry, which for centuries has struggled against capitalism, has become also the symbol of the Russian proletariat, which can be seen even in the adoption of the Red five-pointed star, which in former times, as it is well known, was the symbol of Zionism and Jewry. With this sign comes victory, with this sign

M. Cohen, in The Communist, April 12, 1918.
The workings of this unrest are to be seen in the events that have accomplished, since the fateful year 1914, a task that looms far larger than the French Revolution – the annihilation of the most firmly entrenched, the most selfish and most reckless autocratic system in the world, the Russian Czarism.
That achievement, destined to figure in history as the overshadowing result of the world war, was largely the outcome of Jewish thinking, of Jewish discontent, of Jewish effort to reconstruct.
The Bolshevist Revolution was largely the outcome of Jewish idealism. What it so powerfully contributed to accomplish in Russia, the same historic Jewish qualities are tending to produce in other countries.
The American Hebrew, September 10, 1920.
There is much in the fact of Bolshevism itself, in the fact that so many Jews are Bolshevists, in the fact that the ideals of Bolshevism at many points are consonant with the finest ideals of Judaism.
The Jewish Chronicle, April 4, 1919.
Bolshevism is a religion and a faith. How could these half converted believers (in Democracy) ever dream to vanquish the “Truthful” and the “Faithful” of their own creed, these holy crusaders, who had gathered round the Red Standard of Karl Marx, and who had fought under the daring guidance of these experienced officers of all

The most remarkable and the most injurious consequence of the Great War has been the creation of new nationalisms and the exalting of those already existing. Nationalism is a danger for the Jewish people. Today, as in all epochs of history, it is proved that Jews cannot live in powerful states where a high national culture has developed.

Britain has a mighty Empire but there are forces in the universe more enduring than Empire or dynasty. Britain may imagine that, dealing with a world in chaos today, she may disregard public opinion. But Jewry of 1937 is not the Jewry of 1898. We are no longer a disunited and incoherent mass.
Rabbi Stephan S. Wise,
American Delegation to Zurich, 1937.
There is quite a difference between a national minority and a religious group. Minority rights are involved only where a given territory is seized by a conquering nation and annexed to its own, bringing the natives under the rule of the conqueror.
One could cite many such illustrations of minority groups, but one could never find a religious group claiming minority rights except in countries where the state and church are one.
In law and in reason, there cannot be a division of nationality in any country without endangering the welfare of the nation.
There is no law in any civilized country which fixes the status of a citizen on the basis of his religious opinions.
Page 242 ^
To say, therefore, that the Jews are “a religious minority,” completely destroys their claim to minority group recognition in any country.

Jewish Nationalism is a Jewish question which must be governed by Jewish principles and not be made subservient to the convenience or exigencies for the time being of any government, however important. As a people, we Jews have not been at war between ourselves, the Jews in England against Jews in Germany, or the Jews in France against the Jews in Austria: and to sectionize Jewry in obedience to international differences seems to us to give away the whole principle of Jewish Nationalism.

I must stress that the Soviet Government and the Soviet partisans were the only ones in this bitter and bloody epoch of Jewish life who saved the Jews and made it possible for tens of thousands of Jews, particularly in the western part of White Russia and the Ukraine, to live through the war.

They assured us that we were out of danger, for we were now under the protection of Russian power. How new and wonderful for us, these expressions of understanding and sympathy by militia and police.

One of the most outstanding facts which everyone could observe was the following: Jews would evacuate scores of cities and towns together with the Red Army whenever the Bolsheviks had to leave a place, for a few days or even for a few hours, no matter, the Jews always ran away and followed the Red Army .... At that time one really could believe that the Bolshevik regime was a Jewish regime, so much time, attention and energy to the evacuation of Jewish population was given the Red Army.
Lestchinsky, Between Life and Death.
And at the outset of the war, as we all know, Jews were among the first evacuated from the western regions threatened by the Hitlerite invaders, and shipped to safety east of the Urals.
Louis Levine, quoted in Robert H. Williams’

Whatever be the status of Judaism and religion, it may be categorically stated that there is no Jewish problem in the Soviets. The Soviet Union is the only country in the world, having a large Jewish population, in which the Jewish question is not raised as a foremost issue, whether religious, racial or social. One need but cross over the western border into Poland to appreciate the striking dissimilarity. Compared to the status of Jewish life in Fascist lands, in Nazi Germany or in now Nazified Austria, for example, the USSR is a veritable Utopia for the Jewish people. Only Socialism has so far been able to solve the Jewish problem.

The Jewish Transcript
(Seattle, Washington), May 29, 1936.
Jews are not Communists, is the burden of a panic-stricken statement issued by Dr. Cyrus Adler, president of the American Jewish Committee; Alfred M. Cohen, president of the B’nai B’rith, and B.C. Vladeck, chairman of the Jewish Labor Committee purporting to answer Hitler’s most recent anti-Semitic decrees and appealing to “the American sense of justice and fair play”, these gentlemen hysterically deny that Communism is Jewish and frenziedly repudiate Jews who are Communists. Their statement, concocted out of fear for themselves, libels against Soviet Russia and lies about the Jewish people, is nothing less than an offer of their services to the Fascists of America in return for personal immunity and, private safety ....
Is it possible that the heads of the American Jewish Committee, the B’nai B’rith and Jewish Labor Committee, have never heard of Litvinov, of Yaraslovsky, of Kaganovitch, of Radek, of Bela Kun? Or do they hope to confound the Fascist lie that all Communists are Jews by the equally preposterous lie that no Communists are Jews ....
Let Messrs, Adler and Cohen and Vladeck consult the files of their own organizations. Let them refer to the work of Ort and the Argojoint and the Joint Distribution Committee. Let them make public the facts as to hundreds of thousands of Jews living in agricultural colonies in Crimea and the Ukraine, and the even larger numbers who are sharing in the industrial development of Soviet Russia. Then let them dare speak of “declassed Jews” and “hindrances to the development of the Revolution” ....
Page 252 ^
Jews who deny that some or many Jews are Communists, are jockeying themselves into a position of citizens on toleration, justifying their citizenship by yielding their fundamental civic right to hold any political viewpoint that seems just and wise to them as individuals ....
That the authors of this piece of perfidy do not represent the masses of American Jews, will be made abundantly clear. They do not speak even for their own constituents. Had the majority of members in the B’nai B’rith and the Jewish Labor Committee been consulted, no such statement could have been issued. Even in the American Jewish Committee there are individuals capable of detecting the unwisdom and the ignominy of this self-betrayal. But verbal and formal repudiations of this joint statement are not enough. To counteract its poison and to preclude its repetition, Jews must take active and positive measures.
There must be a widening and strengthening of the united front against Fascism in every guise and form, if by taking full and honorable part in the forging of this united front, the Jews of America write themselves down as Communists in the eyes of Messrs, Adler, Cohen and Vladeck, so be it.
James Waterman Wise, (son of Rabbi S.S. Wise)

The time has come when the patriotic Jews of America should begin to feel the great responsibility for the evil deed (Communism) planned and hatched in the camp of Israel.
Communism is tyranny worse than that of the Czarist regime .... The Bolshevik Revolution was first hidden, rooted and started in Leningrad and Moscow, and thence hurled itself on the remainder of Russia. It is
Page 253 ^
starting in exactly the same way here and now.
I meet Communists in their hunting grounds, Union Square (New York), “How will you start the revolution here in America.” I ask them in their own language, “Do you not think that ultimately the government will wake up and make what you are doing illegal?”
“Then we Communists will work underground, and use the same methods that brought about the Russian Revolution by assassinating the government officials and scaring others to death. We will plant cells in their fashionable clubs and their homes – poison their food. Did we not do so in Russia, and succeed?”
At a mass meeting in Yew York City commemorating the anniversary of the death of Lenin, there were nearly 25,000 present. There were not 500 Gentile faces in that mob.
Jews ask prayers for their co-religionists in Russia; but why don’t these Jews in their comfortable pews on Fifth Avenue and Riverside Drive take the 0ld Testament and the Prayer Book and visit their deluded Communistic brethren and convert them to Jehovah and the Republic before it is too late?
Our coffersare full, our homes palatial, our synagogues rise, our hospitals multiply. Never has Israel so increased in wealth.
Demonstrations such as are often resorted to by Communist leaders and their dupes, will soon exhaust the patience of tolerant Americans and create in them a spirit of hatred against all Jews, the like of which has never been seen, for we have become an irritation to our American neighbors.
The American people are long suffering to a fault, but they are essentially men of action, practical men, and surely America’s participation in the World War has shown what Americans can do when once aroused to the conviction that their forbearance has been abused.

Let no Jew who reads these words accuse me of trying to ingratiate myself with “anti-Semites”.

Mr. Treister stated in his letter in your paper that the Jewish people form a very small percentage of the Communists in America. He states that “in Chicago, with a Jewish population of 400,000, there are about 350 Communists.”
I myself am Jewish, and I come from Chicago. I spent thirteen years in that city. Approximately 98 percent of us are Communists, and we are not ashamed of it. It is a system laid down to us by our great leader, Karl Marx, and only the cowards hide behind “democracy” or “Americanism”. Furthermore, I think Mr. Treister should check up on his figures more closely if he would give out information.

The present program of palliative relief must give way to a program of fundamental reconstruction, American Democracy must be socialized by subjecting industrial production and distribution to the will of the people’s Congress. The first step is to abolish the Federal veto and to enlarge the express powers of the National Government through immediate constitutional amendment. A gradual march in the direction of socialization will follow. At the same time, energetic measures must be adopted to prevent the inevitable reactionary attempt to overthrow democracy. In Spain the Government found it necessary to arm its workers. In America, let it be beforehand by strengthening the organization of and by systematically removing from key positions in Army and National Guard all officers whose loyalty to the Constitution may be qualified by class allegiance.

He was born in Germany in 1818, and belonged to an old rabbinic family. He was not himself reared a [practicing] Jew, however, but while still a child was baptized a Christian by his father. Yet the rebel soul of the Jew flamed in him throughout his days, for he was always a “troubler” in Europe. He was banished from one land after another, and he was arrested and imprisoned many times. He had to fIee from Germany to France, then to Belgium, then back to Germany, again to France, and. finally to England.
He was one of the founders of Socialism, and his book entitled Capital, is called the Bible of the Socialist movement. He believed in equality, in democracy, not alone in the domain of politics but also in the domain of industry .... It was an

What we Jews must do is set our faces as flint against Fascism, against any form of it whatsoever. Our next step to be taken as soon as ever it is possible, must be to seize, in the interest of the workers, all the nation’s industries, and let nothing whatsoever stand in our way, even should we have to use violence.

You never observe a great intellectual movement in Europe in which the Jews do not greatly participate. The first Jesuits were Jews; that mysterious Russian Diplomacy which so alarms Western Europe is organized and principally carried on-by Jews; that mighty revolution which is at this moment preparing in Germany, and which will be, in fact, a second and greater Reformation, and of which so little is as yet known in England, is entirely developing under the auspices of Jews, who almost monopolize the professorial chairs of Germany.

An insurrection takes place against tradition and aristocracy, against religion and property .... The natural equality of men

and the abrogation of property are proclaimed by the Secret Societies which form Provisional Governments, and men of the Jewish race are found at the head of every one of them. The people of God co-operate with atheists; most skillful accumulators of property ally themselves with Communists; the peculiar and chosen race touch the hand of all the scum and low castes of Europe; and all this because they wish to destroy that ungrateful Christendom which owes them even its name, and whose tyranny they can no longer endure.
When the Secret Societies, in February, 1848, surprised Europe, they were themselves surprised by the unexpected opportunity, and so little capable were they of seizing the occasion, that had it not been for the Jews, who of late years unfortunately have been connecting themselves with these unhallowed associations, imbecile as were the governments, the uncalled-for outbreak would not have ravaged Europe. But the fiery energy, and the teeming resources of the Children of Israel maintained for a long time the unnecessary and useless struggle. If the reader throw his eyes over the provisional governments of Germany and Italy, and even France, formed at that period, he will recognize everywhere the Jewish element.

The Jewish trends of the People’s Front declare that this is the greatest bulwark against anti-Semitism and for the defense of the Jewish people’s rights.
Collections are now made in the shops for the support of the People’s Front in Spain, The collections are as important for the fighters in Spain as for the masses in the U.S.A. The fighters in Spain get the assurance that great numbers of toilers on
Page 262 ^
this side of the ocean are with them. The masses in America partake of an action of international solidarity in a tangible form.
It is a necessary undertaking which should be developed on the basis of a People’s Front organization. But this is what I was told about the attitude of some Jews to the collection. When the question of funds for the Spanish Revolution was raised in one dress shop in New York, some of the workers, a minority, protested that they could not contribute because “they have not forgotten the Spanish Inquisition” and what it did to the Jews.
It is not necessary to remind the Jews that the “rebels,” as they are called by the press, have placed all the Jews of Spanish Morocco, which is under their control, in concentration camps.
The question, however, is broader than that. The war is fought in Spain today is wider than the Spanish territory, It is of life-and-death significance for the Jews of the world ....
When the People’s Front wins, definitely, in Spain, that will strengthen the People’s Front in France and will give impetus to the formation of People’s Fronts throughout the world.
It will make the position of the Jews more secure in the capitalist countries where bourgeois democracies still exist, and it will hasten the end of Fascism in those countries where the swastika and the black shirt now reign supreme.
This is why every Jew must support the struggle of the People’s Front Government in Spain.

And Litvinoff? The great Jew who sits at the right hand of Stalin, the little tin-soldier of Communism. Litvinoff has increased in stature until he far outranks any comrade of the Internationale with the exception of the sallow-complexioned Keeper of the Kremlin.

He will follow the path of Disraeli into the residence of 10 Downing Street, where the destinies of all the King’s men are decided. The rise of Hore-Belisha has been sensational. He is past master of the sagacious use of the public Press, having learnt his stuff from Lord Beaverbrook. He has managed to keep his own name prominent. This aggressive young man has transformed the British Army from a shaggy, shabby, down-in-the-mouth and round-at-the-heels outfit to a mechanized fighting machine, which is at wartime strength in a world that threatens to become little more than a dunghill for dictators.

We plan to continue in 1954 a program of visits to Catholic parochial schools, which have two purposes:
l) Securing first-hand information regarding intergroup emphasis in these schools; and
2) Providing teachers and principals with guidance in teaching methods and the use of lesson materials in social study courses involving intergroup education.
In 1954 we plan to concentrate our efforts in one city such as Hartford or Pittsburgh, in order to provide us, through intensive works with a full picture of Catholic education.
Work with the National Catholic Welfare Conference will include furnishing of factual information to the Press Department; enlisting the support of the Social Action Department in various issues as they arise; and offering the Education and Youth Departments with materials on Jews and Judaism as we have done in the past.
We will continue our efforts with the Educational Policies Commission of the National Education Association, and with the American Council on Education, to assure careful study of the proposal that the public schools teach about religion.
New efforts will be made during the coming year to seek the publication of revised editions of Catholic textbooks through the good offices of the Catholic Biblical Association, In addition, we will help the Committee on Citizenship of the Catholic University of America in the preparation of texts on Jews arid Judaism and articles for youth magazines.

We Jews have spoiled the blood of all the races of Europe. Taken as a whole, everything today is Jewdified. Our senses are alive to all the races. Our spirit reigns over the world. We are the Lords; all that is light today is child of our spirit.
Let the Goyim hate us: Let them drive us out: Let our enemies laugh at our physical weakness: We cannot be driven out any more. We have eaten ourselves into the peoples. We have vitiated the races of the Europeans. We have tarnished and broken their power; we have made everything of theirs foul, rotten, decomposed, decayed.
Dr. Kurt Munzer, The Way to Zion.
Without having been absorbed, today the Hebrew spirit dominates where at first it was hardly endured. We no longer need to close ourselves up in the medieval Ghetto, since we have for some time possessed the dominion which was promised to us. Without us no potentate in the world can undertake anything, for we control the gold market. No word contrary to our taste is published because we control the press. No idea which displeases us penetrates the intellectual world, because we dominate the theater. The Hebrew spirit has conquered the world.
Martz Cohn, Weisen von Zion, page 27.
Moreover, as our daily press and our
Page 270 ^
literature are completely under Jewish influence, all personalities, who come into publicity, are appraised and judged accordingly as they show themselves well-disposed, or the contrary, to the Jews. This circumstance has always formed the standard of criticism for Jewish authors, and is more the case today than ever. The consequence is, that from youth upwards, our dispositions are made susceptible to a false philanthropy, and became especially sympathetic to the “Poor, innocent, persecuted Jews.” And, in riper years, “refinement” and “tolerance” both play a part in shielding the Hebrew of today from any unpleasantness, which he might experience on account of the medieval prejudice. Yes, we actually give ourselves trouble, not only to make all manner of excuses for the Jews, because of the illusory state of suffering, in which they are supposed to live, but even to assist them, and to further their interests whenever we can, just as if we had to make restitution for an ancient wrong, which our ancestors are supposed to have inflicted on them.
Such sentiment does credit to our hearts – but what about our intelligence? All people, who are acquainted with history, and the actual facts of life, know perfectly well that the Jews have never emerged guiltless from the occasional disasters, which they have encountered, and that the tales of cruelties, said to have been perpetrated against the Hebrews, proceed, in many cases, from the imagination, and in others, from gross exaggeration. Thus the so-called “Jew Battles” of the Middle Ages were confined, for the most part, to an expulsion of the Jews, who had become far too numerous, from the towns and districts in which the economic pressure, directly due to their usurious practices and maneuvers, had become
Page 271 ^
unbearable. As a tremendous clamour arises from the whole of Jewry, at the present day, whenever one of their race loses his life, or has even one hair of his head touched, one can easily understand how it is, that all incidents, in which Jews have figured as the injured party, have been so extravagantly described in history.

reigning power. For observe that there all intelligent men see the danger: all those who think French thoughts, those who have any care for the future of France are getting ready for the struggle. The only people who appear not to know it are the very people who have no excuse for not knowing it – the men in the government. I not only say it was the duty of these men to see the plot which is being woven against France, I say these men were in the best position for seeing it. They alone, however, showed no reaction against this double assault of Jewish Revolution and Jewish Finance. They have been domesticated by the latter. They have bowed before the former. Am I wrong in speaking of a Jewish reign? If it is less apparent than in Russia and Bolshevik Hungary it is none the less real. And it is against the interest of France that it exercises its rule over it. Whoever observes and thinks, sees the peril. At the same time we see, parallel with it, and consequent upon the progress of the universal Jewish conspiracy a recrudescence of anti-Semitism .... The Universal Jewish Conspiracy must be disrupted or France will perish as did Russia. The evidence presses on al minds. Even political passion is not strong enough to mask it. The life of France is at stake. We must take sides either for France or against her.

The chasm dividing Jew and Christian is too deep to make a meeting of the two possible.
Rabbi A.I. Krim, Liberal Judaism
and Liberal Christianity.
The Jewish religion is hostile to Christianity in general and to the Catholic Church in particular.
Ludwig Lewisohn, from his papers.
Judaism, which was destroyed politically (as a result of the destruction of the Temple in 70 A.D.), went forth into the great world. It adapted its possessions to its wanderings. I once compared it to an army going to war – a “movable State.”
Jews were compelled to smuggle their goods across from frontier to frontier; so they chose abstract wares, easy to smuggle; and this gave them ability, despite ghettoes and restrictions, to enter everywhere; and so it is that the Hebrew people have penetrated everywhere.
The argument is that Judaism, by penetrating among the Gentiles (in Christian guise or otherwise), has gradually undermined the remnants of paganism. Such penetration has not been without deliberate Jewish conniving in the shape of
Page 278 ^
assistance bestowed in a thousand ways, devices and disguises. It has been effected in great measure by crypto-Jews, who have permeated Christianity and spoken through the mouth of Christianity.
By these devices, through Jewish will and through the power of their Jewish blood; and owing to an instinct for “requital,” they have gradually induced Christianity to shed what was left in it of pagan elements; and it is they who, in principle (even though they are called by great Gentile names), are the creators of the Renaissance, of Liberalism, of Democracy, of Socialism, and of Communism.
All this achievement .... has come about chiefly through unknown and anonymous Jews. Jews in secret, either crypto-Jews who mingled among the Gentiles and nurtured great thinkers from among them; or, through the influence of Jews, who, in the great crises of liberty and freedom, have stood behind the scenes; or through Jewish teachers and scholars from the time of the Middle Ages, It was disciples of Jewish teachers who headed the Protestant movements.
These dogs, these haters of Israel, have a keen nose. In truth, Jewish influence in Germany is powerful. It is impossible to ignore it. Marx was a Jew. His manner of thought was Jewish. His keenness of intellect was Jewish; and one of his forebears was a most distinguished rabbi endowed with a powerful mind.
The newspapers, under Jewish control, obviously served as an auxiliary in all movements in favor of freedom. Not in vain have Jews been drawn toward journalism. In their hands it became a weapon highly fitted to meet their needs.
The Gentiles have at last realized this secret – that Judaism has gradually penetrated and permeated them like a drug. The Gentile nature is in revolt, and is
Page 279 ^
trying to organize the final battle. Paganism is minded to organize its last war against Judaism. And there is no doubt that this warfare .... is being waged specifically against Democracy, against Socialism. This is another worldwide warfare against the forces of Judaism. I venture to think that Socialism in its highest form is the fruit of the Jewish spirit, and the fruit of the world outlook of the prophets. It is they who were the first Socialist.
War is now being waged against us, against Judaism – not in our own land, but in the great outer world where we are scattered. They would “smoke us out” of all the cracks and crannies where we have hidden. They would exterminate us like bacilli, and be rid of us,

To other religion in the world has offered a spectacle as contradictory, as malicious as the Jewish prayer Kol Nidre used during Yom Kippur .... Jewish history has been tragic to the Jews and no less tragic to the nations which have suffered them. Our major vice of old and of today is parasitism.
Samuel Roth, Jews Must Live.
All vows, bonds, oaths! devotions, promises, penalties, and obligations wherewith we have vowed, sworn, devoted and bound ourselves: from this Day of Atonement unto the next Day of Atonement, may it come unto us for good; lo, all these, we repent us in them. They shall be absolved, released, annulled, made void, and of none effect: They shall not be binding nor shall they have any power. Our vows shall not be vows; our bonds shall not be bonds; and our oaths shall not be oaths.

The Jew is a confessional type; such as he is he has been made by the law and the Talmud; more powerful than blood or climatic varieties, they have developed in him the characteristics which imitation and heredity have perpetuated.

The Talmud had formed the Jewish nation after its dispersion; thanks to it, individuals of diverse origin had constituted a people; it had been the mould of the Jewish soul, the creator of the race; it and the restrictive laws of the various societies have modeled it.

History and Causes, page 267,
The Talmud was the enemy of Christian truth and the sole cause of the refusal of the Jews to recognize the divinity of Jesus ....
The Talmud was burned in Poland in 1557 because of the charge made against the Jews that they used the blood of Christian children in their ceremonies.

My dear questioner, you are too curious, and want to know too much. We are not permitted to talk about these things. I am not allowed to say anything, and you are not supposed to know anything about the Protocols. For God’s sake be careful, or you will be putting your life in danger.
Rabbi Grunfeld in reply to Rabbi Fleishman.
Long have I been acquainted with the contents of the Protocols, indeed for many years before they were ever published in the Christian press. The Protocols of the Elders of Zion were in point of fact not the original Protocols at all, but a compressed extract of the same. Of the 70 Elders of Zion, in the matter of origin and of the existence of the original Protocols, there are only ten men in the entire world who know.

I participated with Dr. Herzl. in the first Zionist Congress which was held in Basle in 1897. Herzl was the most prominent figure at the first Jewish World Congress. Herzl foresaw, twenty years before we experienced them, the revolutions which brought the Great War, and he prepared us for that which was to happen. He foresaw the splitting up of Turkey, that England would obtain control of Palestine.
We may expect important developments in the world.
Dr. Ehrenpreis, Chief Rabbi
of Sweden, in 1924.
It is true, of course, that there were Jews connected with Free Masonry from its birth, students of the Kabbala, as is shown by certain rites which survive .... In the years preceding the outbreak of the French Revolution, they entered in greater numbers than ever, into the councils of the secret societies, becoming, indeed, themselves the founders of secret associations.

The spirit of Freemasonry is the spirit of Judaism in its most fundamental beliefs; it is its ideas, its language, it is mostly its organization. The hope which enlightens and supports Freemasonry is the hope which enlightens and supports Israel. Its crowning will be that wonderful prayer-house of which Jerusalem will be the triumphal centre and symbol.
La Verite Israelite, 1861.
Masonry is a Jewish institution, whose history, degrees, charges, passwords, and explanations are Jewish from the beginning to the end, with the exception of only one by-degree and a few words in the obligation.

The economic boycott being practiced against the Jews is even more deadly than the sporadic acts of violence thus far committed in Central and Eastern Europe.

Here I merely wish to reaffirm the fact that anti-Semitism is so instinctive that it may quite simply be called one of the primal instincts by which the race helps to preserve itself against total destruction. I cannot emphasise the matter too strongly. Anti-Semitism is not as Jews have tried to make the world believe, an active prejudice. It is a deeplyhidden instinct with which every man is born. He remains unconscious of it, as of all other instincts of self-preservation, until something happens to awaken it. Just as when something flies in the direction of your eyes, the eyelids close instantly and of their own accord. So swiftly and surely is the instinct of anti-Semitismawakened in man.
Samuel Roth, Jews Must Live.

If the experiment for which Roosevelt is responsible should in any serious degree break down, as a result of the association with it of a number of eminent Jews there would be an outbreak of anti-Semitism in the United States more profound than anything Anglo-Saxon Civilization has so far known.
Professor Harold J. Laski, statement in 1935.
American Jews, too, must come to grips with our contemporary anti-Semites. We must fill our jails with anti-Semitic gangsters, we must fill our insane asylums with anti-Semitic lunatics, we must harass and prosecute our Jew baiters to the extreme limits of the laws, we must humble and shame our anti-Semitic hoodlums to such an extent that none will wish to dare to become fellow travelers.
Rabbi Leon Spitz, “Glorious Purim Formula,”
in The American Hebrew, March 1, 1946.
One of the most dangerous of specific Jewish characteristics is that of brutal, absolutely barbaric intolerance – an altogether remarkable contradiction in a race which at every moment is loudly crying for tolerance. No worse tyranny can be practised than that exercised by the Jewish race. That consideration for the views and the person of an opponent – even under strenuous opposition – which one finds shared by the Germans and, in particular, by the Italians, is out of the question amongst the Jews. Whoever dares to stand against this Jewish gang they unhesitatingly strive to trample down with animal brutality. Furthermore, there is a vast difference between the intolerance of the German and that of the Jew. The former meets his opponent in open, honourable fight, invoking

the aid of no skeletons, least of all of those concealed in cupboards. The Jew, on the other hand, seeks to destroy his opponent on moral grounds when he finds his material foothold slipping, unearths incidents of his private life, or else, on the other hand, makes every endeavour to conceal the true character of that life, trying to deceive with lies, in order to sway those holding opposing views. That meanest of all fighting methods, hushing up, is specifically Jewish.
Konrad Alberti (Sittenfeld), Gesellschaft.
Whoever acknowledges himself openly to be an anti-Semite has to be prepared to be an outlaw. No matter what his merits, no matter how distinguished in his profession, he wili be ostracised and regarded as a human outcast; Lagarde, Duhring, Treitschke and Wagner could testify to this. One would imagine that the fight against Semitism, against Judaism, when based on conviction, would be no more reprehensible than the fight against Catholicism, Capitalism, Feudalism or Socialism. But the Liberal Press will not hear of such impartiality, and consigns everyone who raises his voice against Israel to the worst sink of corruption.
Maximilian Harden (Isidore Mitkowski), editor
of Die Zukunft in his book, Die Kopfe.
Suing for libel for millions of dollars, enough to cause bankruptcy, would prove the most effective means of silencing Jew-baiter.

I cannot conceive of any Jew in the role of an enemy of the Soviet Union. To me, such a Jew is an unnatural monstrosity, a travesty on everything that is decent and right.
