    Jews on the Jewish question
    (Page 150 ff)

    ALBERTI, CONRAD (Conrad Sittenfeld). 19th c. novelist in Germany.
    No one can dispute that Jewdom takes a leading part in polluting and corrupting all relations. A characteristic of the Jew is the stubborn endeavor to produce values without work, and this being an impossibility, it simply means that these values are artificially produced by swindling and corruption, by maneuvers on the Stock Exchange in conjunction with the Press in order to spread false rumors, and by other and similar methods. These artificial and fictitious values are then acquired, unloaded and exchanged for genuine values, produced by real work, only to melt away and vanish in the hands of their new owners like Helen in the arms of Faust. The representatives of corruption on the Exchange, in the Press and in the Theater in my novel The Old and the Young, representatives of that class who strive to enrich themselves without working, are therefore Jews. (Gesellschaft, number 2, 1889)

    BARING-GOULD, SABINE. 19th c. intellectual in England. He admitted that Germany had few villages "without some Jews who do not cultivate land themselves, but lie in wait like spiders for the failing Bauer." (Germany, Present and Past)

    BRANDEIS, LOUIS. 20th c. jurist in America.
    Jews are a distinct nationality of which every Jew, whatever his country, his station or his shade of belief, is necessarily a member. (Letter to Eastern Council of the Central Conference of Reform Rabbis, June 8, 1915)
    At the time he wrote this letter, Brandeis was a justice of the Supreme Court of another nation-the American.

    BROWNE, LEWIS, RABBI. 20th c. writer in America. In his book, How Odd of God, he declared: "We intend to remake the Gentiles-what the Communists are doing in Russia."

    BUBER, MARTIN. 19th-20th c. novelist in Germany.
    Only in Asia can we truly find ourselves again. Here we are like a wedge which Asia drove into Europe's structure, a thing of ferment and disturbance. We should return to Asia's bosom, and we will then return to the true meaning of our mission, destiny and existence. (Die Welt, a Zionist newspaper, March 29, 1912)

    CAHAN, ABRAHAM. 20th c. writer in America. His novel The Rise of David Levinsky presented a garment-industry tycoon who was described by a review in The Nation as "that type of Jew who raises the gorge of all decent human beings."

    DISRAELI, BENJAMIN. 19th c. politician in England.
    Do you think that the quiet humdrum persecution of a decorous representative of an English university can crush those who have successively baffled the Pharaohs, Nebuchadnezzar, Rome and the Feudal ages? ... And, at this moment, in spite of centuries, of tens of centuries, of degradation, the Jewish mind exercises a vast influence on the affairs of Europe. I speak not of their laws, which you still obey; of their literature, with which your minds are saturated; but of the living Hebrew intellect.
    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 [The reference, of course, is to Marxism; Editor.]
    A few years back we were applied to by Russia. Now, there has been no friendship between the court of St. Petersburg and my family. it has Dutch connections, which have generally supplied it; and our representations in favor of the Polish Hebrews, a numerous race, have not been very agreeable to the Czar. However, circumstances drew to an approximation between the Romanoffs and the Sidonias. I resolved to go myself to St. Petersburg. I had, on my arrival, an interview with the Russian Minister of Finance, Count Cancrin; I beheld the son of a Lithuanian Jew. The loan was connected with the affairs of Spain; I resolved upon repairing to Spain from Russia. I traveled without intermission. I had an audience immediately on my arrival with the Spanish Minister, Señor Mendizabel; I beheld one like myself, the son of a Nuevo Cristiano, a Jew of Arragon. in consequence of what transpired at Madrid, I went straight to Paris to consult the President of the French Council; I beheld the son of a French Jew, a hero, an imperial marshal, and very properly so, for who should be military heroes if not those who worship the Lord of Hosts?...
    The consequence of our consultations was that some Northern power should be applied to in a friendly and mediative capacity. We fixed on Prussia; and the President of the Council made an application to the Prussian Minister, who attended a few days after on our conference. Count Arnim entered the cabinet, and I beheld a Prussian Jew. So you see, my dear Coningsby, that the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes. (Coningsby)
    The influence of the Jews may be traced in the last outbreak of the destructive principle in Europe. An insurrection takes place against tradition and aristocracy, against religion and property. Destruction of the Semitic principle, extirpation of the Jewish religion, whether in the Mosaic or the Christian form, the natural equality of man and the abrogation of property, are proclaimed by the secret societies who form provisional governments, and men of Jewish race are found at the head of every one of them. The people of God cooperate with Atheists; the 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 to them even its name. (Lord George Bentinck, a Political Biography)

    DUBNOW, SEMYON. 19th c. Zionist historian in Russia.
    Assimilation is common treason against the banner and ideals of the Jewish people... But one can never "become" a member of a natural group, such as a family, a tribe or a nation. One may attain the rights or privileges of citizenship with a foreign nation, but one cannot appropriate for himself its nationality too. To be sure, the emancipated Jew in France calls himself a Frenchman of Jewish faith. Would that, however, mean that he became a part of the French nation, confessing to the Jewish faith? Not at all. Because, in order to be a member of the French nation, one must be a Frenchman by birth, one must be able to trace his genealogy back to the Gauls, or to another race in close kinship with them. . . A Jew, on the other hand, even if he happened to be born in France and still lives there, in spite of all these, he remains a member of the Jewish nation...(The Foundation of National Judaism)

    EINSTEIN, ALBERT. 20th c. physicist.
    Anti-Semitism is nothing but the antagonistic attitude produced in the non-Jew by the Jewish group. The Jewish group has thrived on oppression and on the antagonism it has forever met in the world. (Collier's Magazine, November 26, 1938)

    FROMER, JACOB. 18th c. writer. One of the rare Jews who turned 'anti-Semitic,' he wrote a book that purports to reveal many secrets of the anti-Gentile tricks supposedly used by the Jewish community to get ahead in life, Das Wesen des Judentums.

    GOLD, MICHAEL. 20th c. novelist in America. He offered vivid pictures of Lower East Side Ghetto life in Jews Without Money. He preached communism as a solution to the grotesqueness that he saw in the typical capitalist Jew.

    GOLDMAN, NAHUM. 20th c. international Zionist organizer.
    The Jews are divided into two categories, those who admit that they belong to a race distinguished by a history thousands of years old, and those who don't. The latter are open to the charge of dishonesty.
    It is true that the participation of Jews in subversive movements and in the overthrow of the German government in November 1918, was extraordinarily strong. This to be regretted because as a consequence of these activities, the Jewish people lost forces which could have been useful in its own folkish affairs. (J. Agus, The Meaning of Jewish History)
    Dr. Goldmann's admission of Jewish involvement in the 1918 German revolution is one of the few corroborations by a high Jewish leader that his people had such a close connection with this Communist upheaval. For making this same claim, ADOLF HITLER is denounced as a 'hatemonger' and 'anti-Semite.'

    HALPER, ALBERT. 20th c. novelist in America. The satirical novel The Chute centered on a mechanized mall-order house and the sub-human activities, as Halper saw them, of its Jewish employees, on the job and at home.

    HECHT, BEN. 20th c. writer in America. A Jew in Love is a bouquet of smelly blossoms-most of them newly rich types. Particularly emphasized is the sexual preoccupation of the main character. Hecht later changed from such sneering to loud philo-Semitic propagandizing. But his pro-Zionist assertiveness too was disappointed when the grisly Irgun terrorist group for which he had raised funds in Hollywood and New York was disbanded in Israel. Hecht then turned full circle and wrote an anti-Jewish autobiography, Perfidy, apparently a reference to the old "perfidious Jews" phrase of the Catholic liturgy.

    HERZBERG-FRANKEL, LEO. 19th c. intellectual in Germany. His Polnische Juden described the squalor and treachery, combined with an uncanny mystical power, of the East European ghetto Jews.

    HERZL, THEODORE. 19th c. Zionist founder.
    The Jewish question exists wherever Jews are to be found in large numbers. Wherever it does not exist it is brought in by immigrating Jews. . . Every nation in whose midst Jews live is, either covertly or openly, anti-Semitic... anti-Semitism increases day by day and hour by hour among the nations; indeed, it is bound to increase because the causes of its growth continue to exist and cannot be removed... its immediate cause is our excessive production of mediocre intellects, who cannot find an outlet downwards or upwards-that is to say, no wholesome outlet in either direction. When we sink, we become a revolutionary proletariat, the subordinate officers of all revolutionary parties; at the same time, when we rise, there rises also our terrible power of the purse. (The Jewish State)

    An amazing declaration. One of the most important Jews of recent times acknowledges the two sides of the Jewish sword: finance and revolution. Herzl's 1896 play, The New Ghetto, was written in support of his idea that Jews will be obnoxious and wretched until they have their own homeland: it is perhaps more 'anti-Semitic' than anything ever produced in 'Nazi'-Germany.

    JEREMIAH. Old Testament prophet.
    And they will deceive every one of his neighbor, and will not speak the truth: they have taught their tongue to speak lies, and weary themselves to commit iniquity...
    Their tongue is as an arrow shot out; it speaketh deceit: one speaketh peaceably to his neighbor with his mouth, but in heart he layeth his wait. (Jeremiah, 9:5-8)

    The bulk of the present book could greatly be fleshed out by including all of the expostulations from the Jews' own "Holy" Bible. For some reason, however, Jewish experts never class these as 'anti-Semitic,' on the theory, evidently, that it is all right for Jews to criticize Jews.

    JESUS OF NAZARETH. Anti-Pharisee reformer.
    Jesus saith unto them, If ye were Abraham's children, ye would do the works of Abraham. But now ye seek to kill me, a man that hath told you the truth, which I have heard of God: Thus did not Abraham. Ye do the deeds of your father. Then said they to him, we be not born of fornication; we have one father, even God. Jesus said unto them... Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do: he was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it. (The Gospel According to St. John 8,44)

    JOSEPHUS. First c. historian in Rome.
    That was a time most fertile in all manner of wicked practices among the Jews, insomuch that no kind of villainy was then left undone; nor could anyone so much as devise any bad thing that was new if he wished. So deeply were they all infected, both privately and publicly, and vied with one another who should run the greatest lengths in impiety towards God, and in unjust actions towards their neighbors, men in power oppressing the multitude, and the multitude earnestly endeavoring to destroy the men in power. (The Jewish Wars)

    KAHN, OTTO. 20th c. financier in America.
    A number of Jewish revolutionaries who had been expelled from Hungary were there after the Armistice. They wore American uniforms. Their reports to Wilson inspired the policy of the Supreme Council in Central Europe. I have retained in my memory the conversation of one of these augurs whose table neighbor I was at one of those international dinners which are the best school but the most dangerous reef for diplomacy. He had become a director of a great New York bank, one of those which were financing the Bolshevist revolution... A fellow guest had asked him how it was possible for high finance to protect Bolshevism, a system hostile to that movable property whose existence is necessary for the banking industry, and also those riches which are represented by land and buildings, not less a necessity for banking. Our friend, who was then at the head of a mission for feeding those who were without bread, swigged a big glass of Tokay, paused for a moment, taking a long pull at his enormous cigar which had cost five golden francs, and then said:
    "Those who are astonished at our alliance with the Soviets forget that the nation of Israel is the most nationalist of all peoples, for it is the most ancient, the most united and the most exclusive. They forget that its nationalism is the most heroic because it has resisted the most terrible persecutions. They forget that it is also the purest nationalism, since it is the most spiritual; it has existed through the centuries in spite of all obstacles...

    "That is why it is the salt of the earth... Do you know the saying of the men who salt cod fish? I picked it up on the fishing grounds of Newfoundland. Here it is: 'Too much salt corrodes meat, too little lets it rot.' The precept can with justice be applied both to the human mind and to the peoples of the earth [Talmudic Hebrew has an insulting phrase, approximately equal to the more familiar Goyim, for peoples of the earth': am ba'aretz; Editor]. We, Jews, apply it wisely as it should be applied, salt being the emblem of our wisdom. We mingle it discreetly with the bread that men consume. We administer it in corrosive doses only in exceptional 'cases, when it is necessary to get rid of the debris of an immoral past, as in Czarist Russia... You will say that Marxism is the very antithesis of capitalism, which is equally sacred to us. It is precisely for this reason that they are direct opposites to one another, that they put into our hands the two poles of this planet and allow us to be its axis. These two contraries, like Bolshevism and ourselves, find their identity in the International.
    "These opposites, which are at the antipodes to one another in society and in their doctrines, meet again in the identity of their purpose and end in the remaking of the world from above by the control of riches, and from below by revolution. Our mission consists in promulgating the new law and in creating a God, that is to say in purifying the idea of God and realizing it when the time shall come. We shall purify that idea by identifying it with the nation of Israel, which has become its own Messiah. The advent of it will be facilitated by the final triumph of Israel. In these ideas we find our New Testament in which we reconcile kings and prophets. . .
    "In the first place, revolution is never anything but the displacement of privileges which arise from wealth. It is not the creation of riches. nor even their exploitation which feeds the Golden Calf; it is above all the mobilization of wealth, the soul of speculation, which feeds it. The more frequently wealth changes hands, the more of it remains in our hands. We are the brokers who receive commissions on all exchanges, or, if you prefer the expression, we are toll gatherers who control the crossways of the world and collect a tax on all movements of that wealth which is 'anonymous and vagabond,' whether such movements are from country to country, or are the oscillations of market prices...
    "Our essential dynamism makes use of the forces of destruction and forces of creation, but uses the first to nourish the second. . . Our organization for revolution is evidenced by destructive Bolshevism and for construction by the League of Nations, which is also our work. Bolshevism is the accelerator and the League is the brake on the mechanism of which we supply both the motive force and the guiding power. What is the end? It is already determined by our mission. It is formed of elements scattered throughout the whole world, but cast in the flame of our faith in ourselves. We are a League of Nations which contains the elements of all others... Israel is the microcosm and the germ of the City of the Future. (Quoted by Saint-Aulaire, Geneva Versus Peace)
    Saint-Aulaire, a distinguished French diplomatist, wrote here of an extraordinary conversation he had heard in Budapest, shortly after the blood spattered Communist regime of Bela Kun (Cohen) had been overthrown. As he points out, numerous participants in this almost totally Jewish government had returned to Hungary in American uniforms after their downfall, and it was upon them that the Wilson administration in Washington called for advice. The banker who spoke so candidly was, without much doubt, Otto Kahn, one of Jacob Schiff's associates at Kuhn, Loeb international bank in New York. He has been named in intelligence documents as a financier of the 'Russian' revolution, which he here describes with admiration, and which authorities like Robert Conquest (The Great Terror, and other studies) estimate has killed at least 40 million people since 1917.

    KLATZKIN, JACOB. 19th-20th c. Zionist leader in Germany.
    We are not hyphenated Jews; we are Jews with no provision, qualification or reservation. We are simply aliens, a foreign people in your midst, and we emphasize: we wish to stay that way. There is a wide gap between you and us, so wide that no bridge can be laid across. Your spirit is alien to us; your myths, legends, habits, customs, traditions and national heritage, your religious and national shrines, your Sundays and holidays... they are all alien to us. The history of your triumphs and defeats, your war songs and battle hymns, your heroes and their mighty deeds, your national ambitions and aspirations, they are all alien to us. The boundaries of your lands cannot restrict our movements, and your border clashes are not of our concern. Far over and above the frontiers and boundaries of your land stands our Jewish Unity ... therefore, no boundaries can restrain us in purusing our own Jewish policy... We can only live freely among peoples who have not yet reached their national maturity... Therefore, we'll lose our overseas colonies when America reaches that stage, and its people will come out of the 'melting pot' as a national unity. (Krisis und Entscheidung)

    LAZARE, BERNARD. 19th c. intellectual in France.
    The Jews, it may be said, are situated at the poles of contemporary society. They are found among the representatives of industrial and financial capitalism, and among those who have vehemently protested against capital. Rothschild is the antithesis of Marx and Lassalle; the struggle for money finds its counterpart in the struggle against money, and the world-wide outlook of the stock speculator finds its answer in the international proletarian and revolutionary movement. it was Marx who gave the first impulse to the founding of the Internationale, but from Marx proceeded the idea of a Labor Congress, which was held at London in 1864, and resulted in the founding of that society. The Jews constituted a very large proportion of its members, and in the General Council of the society, we find Karl Marx, secretary for Germany and Russia, and James Cohen, secretary for Denmark. Many of the Jewish members of the Internationale took part simultaneously in the Commune, where they found others of their faith. In the organization of the Socialist Party, the Jews participated to the greatest extent. Marx and Lassalle in Germany, Aaron Libermann and Adler in Austria, Dobrojan Gherea in Romania, are or were at one time its creators and its leaders. The Jews of Russia deserve special notice in this brief résumé. Young Jewish students, scarcely escaped from the ghetto, have played an important part in the Nihilistic propaganda; some, among them women, have given up their lives for the cause of Liberation, and to these young Jewish physicians and lawyers, we must add the large number of exited workingmen who have founded in London and New York important labor societies, which serve as centers of socialistic and even of anarchistic propaganda. . .
    The complaint of the anti-Semites seems to be founded: the Jew has the revolutionary spirit; consciously or not, he is an agent of revolution...
    Karl Marx was a clear and lucid Talmudist ... full of that old Hebrew materialism which ever dreams of a paradise on earth and always rejects the chance of a Garden of Eden after death. (L'Antisémitisme)
    The original founders of socialism, as we have seen, almost unanimously had a strong skepticism of Jewish motives. Reformers like PIERRE PROUDHON, CHARLES FOURIER and ALPHONSE TOUSSANEL insisted upon noticing, behind the scenes of current events, that strange Star-of-David-like fusion of the upper triangle of capitalist finance with the lower triangle of Marxist mass agitation. The one who most sharply ridiculed Jewish assertions of leadership in the "revolution" and of the Jew's having the "revolutionary spirit" was MIKHYL BAKUNYIN. He believed that organized Jewry was not genuinely interested in correcting social injustice and was merely using its "left and right arms" of communism and capitalism to seize power for itself.

    LEVY, OSCAR. 20th c. scholar in Britain.
    There is no race in the world more enigmatic, more fatal than the Jews. 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...
    You point out, with fine indignation, the great danger that springs from the prevalence of Jews in finance and industry, and from the , preponderance of Jews in rebellion and revolution. You reveal the connection between the collectivism of the immensely rich International Finance-and the International Collectivism of Karl Marx and Trotsky-the democracy of and by decoy-cries. And all this evil and misery, the economic as well as the political, you trace back to one source-the Jews.
    There is scarcely an event in modern Europe that cannot be traced back to the Jews. Take the Great War that appears to have come to an end. Ask yourself what were its causes and reasons... All latter-day ideas and movements have originally sprung from a Jewish source for the simple reason that the Semitic idea has finally conquered-conquered through Christianity, which, as Disraeli pointed out long ago, is nothing but 'Judaism for the people.'
    You have noted with alarm that the Jewish elements provide the driving forces for both Communism and Capitalism, for the material as well as the spiritual ruin of this world. From Moses to Marx, in practice and theory, in idealism and in materialism, in philosophy and in politics, they are today just what they have always been-passionately devoted to their aims and purposes.
    'But these visions are all wrong' you will reply. 'Look where they have led the world. Think, have they not had a fair trial of 300 years. How much longer are you going to recommend them to us and inflict them on us?'
    To this question I have only one answer. it is this: YOU ARE RIGHT! This reproach is only too well justified, and upon this common ground I am quite willing to shake hands with you, and defend you against any accusation of promoting race hatred.
    If you are an Anti-Semite, 1, the Semite am an Anti-Semite too, and a much more fervent one than ever you are. We have erred, my friend, we have grievously erred. We who have posed as the saviors of the world; we who have even boasted of having given it 'the Savior-we are today nothing else but the world's seducers, its destroyers, its incendiaries, its executioners. We, who have promised to lead you to a new Heaven, we have finally succeeded in leading you into a New Hell!
    There has been no progress, least of all moral progress. And it is just our morality which has prohibited all real progress. I look at this world and I shudder at its ghastliness- shudder all the more, as I know the spiritual authors of all this ghastliness... (From his preface to The World Significance of the Russian Revolution, by George Pitt-Rivers.)

    LILLIENTHAL, MAX. 19th c. Jewish leader in Germany. As a leader of the Reform group of Jews, he stirred up a great furore in Russia when he denounced the rival Lubavitcher Orthodox Jews to the government, saying that the rabbis encouraged unethical activities against the Gentiles, including usury and fraud. He also accused the Lubavitcher Jews of smuggling large sums out of Russia, intended for Zionist activities in Palestine. (Rabbi J. Schneerson, The Tzemach Tzedek and the Haskalah Movement)

    LOEB OF BRODY, MOSES. 19th c. rabbi in Poland.
    He who does not have the courage to care for the abscesses of the Children of Israel and to wash away their pus with his own hands, has not half the love for Israel that is needed. (S. Dubnow, History of the Jews in Europe, volume 2)

    MARR, WILHELM. 19th c. writer in Germany. A former Marxist, he had a failing out with the predominantly Jewish leaders of that movement, and became what would today be called an 'anti-Semite.' All of which is more than a little odd, since he was a Jew himself, and was the coiner of the 'racist,' pseudoscientific term, I anti-Semitism.'

    MARX, KARL. 19th c. Communist.
    Christianity sprang out of Judaism. It has again withdrawn into Judaism. The Christian from the outset was the theorizing Jew; the Jew is therefore the practical Christian and the practical Christian has become a Jew. Christianity has only seemed to overcome real Judaism... Christianity is the sublime idea of Judaism. Judaism is the common application of Christianity.
    As soon as society succeeds in abolishing the empirical essence of Judaism, which is the huckster and the conditions that produce him, the Jew will become impossible, because his consciousness will no longer have a corresponding object. ("On the Jewish Question," Selected Essays)
    Let us look at the real Jew of our time: not the Jew of the Sabbath, whom Bauer considers, but the Jew of everyday life.
    What is the Jew's foundation in our world? Material necessity, private advantage.
    What is the object of the Jew's worship in this world? Usury. What is his world god? Money.
    Very well, then: emancipation from usury and money, that is, from practical, real Judaism, would constitute the emancipation of our time...
    The Jew has already emancipated himself in the Jewish way: the Jew who is, for example, merely tolerated in Vienna, determines with his money power the fate of the entire German Empire. The Jew who is without rights in the smallest German state, decides the fate of Europe.
    This is no isolated fact. The Jew has emancipated himself in the Jewish fashion not only by acquiring money power but through money's having become (with him or without him) the world power and the Jewish spirit's having become the practical spirit of the Christian peoples. The Jews have emancipated themselves to the extent that the Christians have become Jews. (From a review by Marx of Bruno Bauer's The Capacity of Today's Jews and Christians to Become Free)
    Thus we find every tyrant backed by a Jew, as is every Pope by a Jesuit. In truth, the cravings of oppressors would be hopeless, and the practicability of war out of the question, if there were not an army of Jesuits to smother thought and a handful of Jews to ransack pockets. (New York Tribune, 1856; cited in National Review magazine, October 5, 1965) Was Karl Marx 'anti-Semitic,' as it has now become fashionable for Jewish spokesmen to claim? (See, for example, D. Runes, A World Without Jews.) Probably not, to judge by the types he gathered around him in the early-day Communist movement (see MIKHYL BAKUNYIN and BERNARD LAZARE). The full context of his writings on the Jewish question, from which these brief excerpts are taken, suggests that what he was really interested in was the politicizing and the wooing away from everyday petty capitalism of his Jewish colleagues. He felt that enough of a financial beachhead had been secured in the West, and that it was now time to get on with the actual business of organizing to seize political power. Marx's terrible tongue-lashings of moderate-minded Jewish millionaires who did not support his budding political party can be understood as a call to racial duty, a call that seems definitely to have been heeded, to judge by pro-Communist activities of so many Jews for the past century. It is highly significant that Marx kept such references to Jews as the above out of his major works. Das Kapital, for example, never once refers to the Rothschilds, although it purports to be the last word on "the sovereignty of finance."
    It is now clear to me that he, as proven by the appearance of his head and hair, is descendant from Negroes who joined Moses on the trek out of Egypt (if his mother or grandmother on his father's side didn't cross with a nigger). The combination of Jews and Germans with a bit of Negroid blood is certain to create a really peculiar product. The obtrusiveness of this character is also niggerish. (Letter to Friedrich Engels, Marx-Engels Briefwechsel, volume 3)
    The reference here is to Marx's rival Jewish Communist, Ferdinand Lassalle. We have followed Marx's German vocabulary exactly: Negroes where he uses the proper Negern, and nigger and niggerish for Nigger and Niggerhaft. To complete our turn on this dizzy merry-go-round, we must point out that Lassalle himself became extremely 'anti-Semitic' in his old age. What he might have said about Karl Marx has not been recorded. (E. Silberner, "Ferdinand Lassalle. . .")

    MEARS, ABRAHAM (who used the name Gamaliel Ben Pedahzur). 18th c. Hebrew scholar in England. He translated the Hebrew Prayer Book, in 1738. The commentary, along with his frank translations of this Talmud-like material angered Jews because it shows what those in synagogue say, and pray, concerning non-Jews.

    MICHAEL THE NEOPHYTE. 18th c. Baltic-area convert to Christianity. He identified himself as the ex-grand rabbi of Lithuania and exposed what he said was a ritual murder cult among his former correligionists. He swore, on the crucifix, that the ceremonial extraction of the blood of a young Christian male was not merely incidental to Judaism but an absolute commandment; adding that he himself, while grand rabbi, had presided over such murder ceremonies. His principal book, Revelations of the Jewish Rites Before God and the World (MS. dated 1716; first reproduced in Pikoulski's Zlosc Zydowska, 'Jewish Wickedness,' Lvov, 1760), is full of revolting technical detail on the procedures and purposes of the blood extraction. Whatever the truth of Michael's claim to personal knowledge, the fact is that strange disappearances of children were an annual occurrence at the vernal equinox (Easter) in Poland, usually resulting in a trial and execution of one or more Jews, in most years. The result was that the Pikoulski volume, with its unique Jewish testimony, became an established text consulted by religious and juridical authorities for nearly two centuries. Jewish writers, as might be expected, dismiss it as yet another psychopathic piece of 'anti-Semitism' by those 'Goyim' who, presumably, simply lied about the murders of their children.

    NAUMANN, MAX. 20th c. Jewish leader in Germany. The leader of the Deutsch-nationale Juden, a conservative Jewish youth group, believed that Jews belong to a separate, nonGermanic race that is characterized by distinctive somato-type, facial expression, linguistic style and even a special mode of physical movement. (Vom nationaldeutschen Juden)

    NOAH, MORDECAI M. 19th c. Jewish leader in America.
    Jews must be turned aside from the crooked paths of traffic, miscalled commerce, to industry and agriculture. (Address at consecration of Temple Shearith Israel, New York City, 1818)

    ORNITZ, SAM. 20th c. writer in America. He seems to have bitterly hated the gauche, newly-rich Jews of New York in the early decades of the century. He coined a word for them: the Allrightniks. Haunch, Paunch and jowl his principal work of the genre; Ornitz later became heavily involved in Marxist activities in Hollywood.

    PFEFFERKORN, JOHANN. 15th c. Christian convert and anti-Jewish polemicist in Germany. His Hostis Judaeorum reveals his 'insider' knowledge of Hebrew and the Talmud. He disputed the pro-Jewish 'Christian Kabbalist' Johann Reuchlin on the subject of whether the Jewish holy books preach hatred of non-Jews.

    PRINZ, JOACHIM. 20th c. German-American Zionist leader.
    We want to replace assimilation with the new mandate: acknowledgment of the Jewish nation and the Jewish race. A state which is constructed on the principle of the purity of nation and race can only have respect for those Jews who see themselves in the same way. In no way can the state see in such an acknowledgment a lack of loyalty to the state. The state can only want those Jews who clearly acknowledge their belonging to their own Volk... For only someone who is aware of his own ways and his own blood can have respect for the national will of other nations. . . (Wir Juden)

    RATHENAU, WALTER. 19th-20th c. plutocrat in Germany.
    Whoever wishes to see it [the reality of Jewish life in Germany] should wander through the Tiergartenstrasse at twelve o'clock on a Berlin Sunday morning, or else look into the foyer of a theater in the evening. Strange sight! There, in the midst of German life, is an isolated race of men. Loud and self-conscious in their dress, hot-blooded and restless in their manner... An Asiatic horde on the sandy plains of Prussia... Forming among themselves a close corporation, rigorously shut off from the rest of the world. Thus they live half-willingly in their invisible ghetto, not a living limb of the people, but an alien organism in its body. (Published in the journal Die Zukunft, March 6, 1897, and quoted by H. Kessler, Walter Rathenau, His Life and Work).
    Three hundred men, all acquainted with each other, control the economic destiny of the Continent. (Neue Freie Presse, December 1909)

    As Kessler points out, Rathenau was one of that three hundred himself. He was also one of the Jewish "alien organism" he speaks of, as seen in the fact that he dipped lavishly into the money that he had made by speculation on the industry of the German people to help along the fledgling Communist state in Russia. (See also WILHELM 11.)

    RAVAGE, MARCUS ELI. 20th c. writer in America.
    Of course you do resent us Jews. The thing that intrigues me about this anti-Jewish business, however, is your total lack of grit. You seem to be suffering from self-consciousness horribly. It is not as if you were amateurs-you have been at it for over fifteen centuries. You resent us, but cannot clearly say why.
    We are, if you are to be believed, a menace to your racial integrity. We shirk our patriotic duty in wartime, because we are pacifists by nature and tradition.
    You accuse us of stirring up revolution in Moscow. Suppose we admit the charge, what of it?
    Take the three principal revolutions in modern times-the French, American and Russian. What are they but the triumph of the Jewish idea of social, political and economic justice? And the end is still a long way off. We still dominate you.
    You make much noise and fury about the undue Jewish influence in your theaters and movie palaces. Granted, your complaint is well-founded. But what is that compared with our staggering influence in your churches, your schools, your laws and your government, and the very thoughts you think?
    You believe "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion." But what is that beside the unquestionable and historic conspiracy we have carried out, and which we have never denied because you have never had the courage to charge us with it?
    You call us subverters, agitators, revolution-mongers. It is the truth-and I cower at your discovery.
    You have not begun to appreciate the real depth of our guilt. We have taken your natural world, your ideals, your destiny, and played havoc with them. We are at the bottom not merely of the latest war, but nearly all your wars. We have brought discord and confusion and frustration into your personal and public life. We are still doing it. We did it solely with the irresistible might of our spirit, with ideas and propaganda.
    If we were in your place, we should dislike you more cordially than you do us. But we should make no bones about telling you why. You go about whispering terrifyingly about the hand of the Jew in this and that. It makes us quake. We are conscious of the injury we did when we imposed upon you our alien faith and traditions. And then you specify and talk vaguely of Jewish financiers and Jewish motion picture promoters, and our terror dissolves in laughter. The gentiles, we see with relief, will never know the real blackness of our crimes.
    Can you wonder that we Jews have always taken your anti-Semites rather lightly, as long as they did not resort to violence? ("The Real Case Against the Jews," by Marcus Ell Ravage, pseudonym for 'big destruction hammer of God,' Century magazine, January 1928.)

    ROTH, SAMUEL. 20th c. Jew in America. His Jews Must Live was a sort of autobiographical confession of various things that Jews supposedly do to injure Gentiles-chiefly in the area of questionable business practices.

    SAMUEL, MAURICE. 20th c. writer in America.
    Between Gentiles and Jews there lies an unbridgeable gulf. Ours is one life-yours another. This primal difference is not reconcilable. It is abysmal. . .
    Wherever the Jew is found, he is a problem, a source of unhappiness to himself and those around him. Jews are everywhere to a large extent aliens-unquestionably an alien spirit in your colleges. He will not accept your rules of right or wrong because he does not understand them. These two ways of life are utterly alien to the other. They are enemies...
    Our Jewishness is not a creed. it is our totality. A Jew is a Jew in everything. We cannot conceive of a duality-religion and life, the sacred and the secular. I might say, 'We and God grew up together.' In the heart of any pious Jew, God is a Jew. Jews alone understand the universality of God.
    There does not seem to be a single country with a history which has not been anti-Semitic at one time or another. . .
    You might say, 'Well, let us exist side by side and tolerate each other.' But the two are not merely different; they are opposed in mortal enmity...
    in your world, a man should be loyal to his country, to his province, to his city. To the Jew, naked loyalty is an incomprehensible thing...
    We Jews pay little attention to the afterlife. We thank God for having made us different from you...
    We are not in your midst by our own will, but through your action. We are unwelcome to you because we are what we are. We have more cogent reasons for hating you than you for us...
    Repudiation of the Jewish religion does not alter the Jew...
    You must learn to dislike and fear the modern and assimilated' Jew more than you did the old Jew. He is more dangerous to you. His enmity to your way of life was tacit before. Today it is active...
    We Jews are accused of being destroyers. We are a homeless mass seeking satisfaction. We cannot find it. We are destroyers-even in the instruments of destruction to which we turn for relief. Jews will remain destroyers for ever. Nothing you do will meet our demands... (You Gentiles)

    SCHULBERG, BUDD. 20th c. writer in America. His What Makes Sammy Run? depicts the dishonesty and squalid avarice that motivate the "smart little yid," Sammy Glick. Ultimately, he achieves a dubious triumph when he becomes "Sammy the Great," a wealthy film producer. It is interesting that Schulberg, the imaginative jewish dramatist and film-maker, was put in charge of 'evidence' procurement for the 'war crimes' extravaganza at Nuremberg after World War Two. In fact, according to an article in the US Negro newspaper supplement, Tuesday magazine (August 1972), he was decorated for his efforts there.

    SEPHARIM, MENDELE MOCHER. 19th c. Jewish writer in Poland.
    Gold has plugged up his heart and his brain. The faculty of memory was now filled by a silver shekel, and in every single place in heart or brain where there had once been a little honesty, a particle of compassion, a trace of human feeling, the slightest creaturely understanding, there now lay-a coin. Every one of his five senses was served by the coin: he saw, heard, tasted, smelled, felt only the coin, and his soul was one beaten work of pure gold. This is the way of Jews, the nature imbued in them from time immemorial, that whenever they see a fellow with a gold coin, let him be what he will, even a calf, a beast in human form-he becomes their god, and they bow down to him, dance and frolic before him, giving glory to his name. His followers praise him in the town, calling him Reb Yakov!, and all the people answer after them in awe, 'Blessed be his glorious name,' and they too say 'Reb Yakov!' (Unease in Jacob)
    Sepharim's relentless denunciation of Reb Yakov continues with astounding fervor, gradually broadening in focus until it becomes an outcry against the supposed willingness of all Jews everywhere to abase themselves for wealth. The story Di Taxe assails similar 'community leaders' for their gouging 'kosher' taxes on the food of little Jews. Di Klatche satirizes the 'philanthropists' and 'charity barons' who are so conspicuous in Jewish affairs. Sepharim had stronger words for his people than have most 'anti-Semites' who have addressed the question: "The Jewish Question: that's the wide canal which drains all the impurities, all the dirt and mud and sewage of man's soul." Significantly, however, he insisted upon writing in Hebrew and Yiddish, languages inaccessible to virtually all Gentiles, which shows that he intended the criticisms as an internal matter.

    SPINOZA, BARUCH. 17th c. Jewish philosopher.
    The love of the Hebrews for their country was not only patriotism but also piety, and was cherished and nurtured by daily rites until, like their hatred of other nations, it was absolutely perverse (as it very well might be, considering that they were a peculiar people and entirely apart from the rest).
    Such daily reprobation naturally gave rise to a lasting hatred, deeply implanted in the heart: for of all hatred, none is more deep and tenacious than that which springs from extreme devoutness or piety, and is itself cherished as pious. (Tractatus theologico-politicus)
    Spinoza was peculiarly well-qualified to address himself to the subject of "Hebrew hatred": as a result of a spat with the rabbis, he was drummed out of his synagogue and condemned to death. As in the similar case of Uriel D'Acosta, Jewry was not necessarily a friend to freedom of thought and tolerance during this period of supposed fiendish religious persecution by Christians.

    UNTERMEYER, SAMUEL. 20th c. Jewish leader in America.
    Other races have come and gone. The Jew has survived. Persecution cannot crush him. He is the aristocrat of the world. (London Investigator, June 193 5)

    WATON, HENRY. 20th c. Communist in America.
    Communism is the destiny of mankind. There is one work on sociology, and only one work, and that is Marx's Capital. Only a Jew could write this work.
    The Jews are the highest and most cultured people on earth... The Jews have a right to subordinate to themselves the rest of mankind and to be the master over the whole earth. The Jews will become masters over the whole earth, and they will subordinate to themselves all nations, not by material power, not by brute force, but by light, knowledge, understanding, humanity, peace, justice and progress.
    The Aryans will enlarge and beautify the earth; they will settle to enjoy the world which they created only in the tents of the Jews. These tents are communism, internationalism. . .
    State capitalism may come from below through a bloody revolution, as was the case in Soviet Russia; or it may come from above, as will likely be the case in this country.
    All that is necessary that in this country state capitalism and fascism shall be completely established is a national emergency or a war. Once such a national emergency or war comes-and it will inevitably come in the near future- and in this country we shall have the state capitalism- and fascism that we see in Soviet Russia or Nazi Germany.
    The Jews shall inherit this earth, and . . . all other races will either disappear altogether or they will become Jews. (A Program for the Jews)
    This rather astounding declaration was published by a group calling itself "Committee for Preservation of the Jews." It was sponsored by the Spinoza Institute of New York. Waton was one of many Jewish mystics who have tried to reconcile the Kabbalah, Spinoza and neo-Gnostic communism, which they see as the long-overdue bringing of rationality, justice- and strict supervision- to the entire world.

    WEIDMAN, JEROME. 20th c. novelist in America. I can get it for You Wholesale and What's In It for Me ? are well-known stories of the chicanery and human corrosion of today's mercantile jungle. What is not widely noticed outside the Jewish world is that Weidman's situations and characters are almost exclusively Jewish.

    WEININGER, OTTO. 19th c. psychologist in Germany.
    The faults of the Jewish race have often been attributed to the repression of that race by Aryans, and many Christians are still disposed to blame themselves in this respect. But the self-reproach is not justified. Outward circumstances do not mould a race in one direction, unless there is in the race the innate tendency to respond to the moulding forces... How can we reconcile the idea that the Jewish character is a modern modification with the history of the foundation of the race, given in the Old Testament without any disapprobation of how the patriarch Jacob deceived his dying father, cheated his brother Esau and over-reached his father-in-law, Laban? (Sex and Character)

    WEIZMANN, CHAIM. 20th c. Zionist leader.
    We told the authorities in London: we shall be in Palestine whether you want us there or not. You may speed up or slow down our coming, but it would be better for you to help us, otherwise our constructive force will turn into a destructive one that will bring about ferment in the entire world. (Jüdische Rundschau, number 4, 1920)

    If, as STEPHEN S. WISE says below, "oppression and injustice have attended the followers of the Jewish faith for centuries," apparently they have not been without means to defend themselves, at least somewhat, since it is possible for them to bring about a disturbance "in the entire world," in the opinion of this first president of the State of Israel.

    WISE, JAMES WATERMAN. 20th c. American Marxist.
    Jews are not Communists, is the burden of a panic-stricken statement issued jointly 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.
    These gentlemen hysterically deny that Communism is Jewish, and frenziedly repudiate Jews who are Communists, Their statement, concocted out of fear for themselves, libels Soviet Russia and lies about the Jewish people. Behind high-flown phrases lies a poorly veiled invitation to potential Nazis of America to pogromize Jews.
    Let us analyze their statement. The first attempts to show that the Jews of Germany and of other countries are not Communists. The second, that Communism and the Soviet Union are themselves foes of Jews and Judaism. Of Soviet Russia, it says: 'Among the 36 commissars who constitute Soviet Russia, only two are Jews.'
    Is it possible that the heads of the American Jewish Committee, the B'nai B'rith and the Jewish Labor Committee have never heard of Litvinoff, of Yaroslovsky, Kaganovitch, Radeck, Bela Kun? Jews who deny that many Jews are Communists are jockeying themselves into the position of citizens on toleration.
    Will not the gentlemen who today disclaim Jewish Communists tomorrow disclaim Jewish Socialists? ... That the authors of this piece of perfidy do not represent the masses of American Jews will be made abundantly clear. 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. And if, by taking full part in the forging of this united front, the Jews of America write themselves down as Communists-so be it. (New Masses magazine, October 29, 1935. Author's emphasis. This was a Communist journal, edited by this son of the US chief rabbi, STEPHEN S. WISE.)

    WISE, STEPHEN S. 20th c. American religious leader.
    Speaking to the congregation of the Free Synagogue in Carnegie Hall yesterday on the subject of 'The Jewish Conspiracy,' which has had its most recent revival in a story published in the London Morning Post, Dr. Stephen S. Wise said that the only serious 'conspiracy' among the Jews emanated from the young men who foreswore their ancient faith.
    Saying that oppression and injustice have attended the followers of the Jewish faith for centuries, Dr. Wise added that they had a right to be vindictive, but that it was not in their nature to do so.
    "It is the Jew who has been reduced to such a state of degradation by oppression that he lies when he swears allegiance to another faith which has not even touched his heart who becomes a dangerous element in the life of the world," said Dr. Wise.
    "The conspiracy, if there is one, is among those of Jewish birth who are or seem ashamed of their origin. They follow false gods or none at all, and among them will be those who may seize power for their own ends." (New York Tribune, March 2, 1920)
    American Jews must not make the tragic mistake that the German Jews made in pretending to be German and not Jews. I am not an American of Jewish faith. I am a Jew. I am an American and have been an American for 60 years, but I have been a Jew for 4,000 years. Hitler was right in one thing. He calls Jews a race, and we are a race! (Address to American Jewish Congress, June 12, 1938)

    WOLF, LUCIEN. 19th c. publicist in Britain.
    In spite of contrary affirmations, I maintain that Jews are first of all JEWS and afterwards English, and if this were not otherwise I would be greatly distressed for Judaism. I do not intend to spend time on the absurdity that a sentiment of limited nationality should be imposed on a people above cosmopolitan aspirations which have been taught to me by the words of the sacred sages of my race. (Pall Mall Gazette, November 24, 1895)

    WOUK, HERMAN. 20th c. novelist in America. He ridicules the rococo Jewishness of New York's upper-middle-class at mid-century in Marjorie Morningstar. Even the principals' names Morningstar and Noel Airman -show the absurdity and viciousness of this new aristocracy of wealth. Interestingly, Wouk himself is a devout Jew who is a graduate of New York's ultra-orthodox Yeshiva University. So, to some extent, his satire must be placed in the genre of ORNITZ, HALPER and others of Eastern European origin who have always had their private disputes with the earlier-arrived German Jews, whom they derisively refer to as 'Yahudas' and 'Allrightniks.'
