“The Sacred Chain: The History of the Jews” by Norman F. Cantor. This book contains some interesting facts, especially concerning the Jewish impact on Western culture (for example, the mentions of Marx, Freud, Boas, David Ricardo, the Frankfurt School, Derrida, modernism/postmodernism, etc.). While White nationalists will not agree with everything in the book (WN Christians won’t like how it strongly connects Christianity to the Jews), it’s still worth reading:

      “A third motif of Jewish history chronicled in the book is the cyclical ups and downs in the fortunes of the race. Gamblers and speculators by nature, the Jews live close to the edge, pressing their luck, at times riding high on a winning streak, and at other times seeing their power and wealth come crashing down.”

      When they come crashing down this time, let’s make sure they stay down. For good.

    2. Igor Alexander Says:

      “The agent of Jewish destruction is demographics, since ‘fifty-two percent of Jewish marriages in 1990 were intermarriages with Gentiles.’ Intermarriage and a low birthrate ‘signal the approaching end of Jewish history as we have known it.’ (p. 426)”

      Unfortunately, many of those half-jews go on to pursue a jewish agenda. I’d even say that without all those part-jews, the jewish agenda wouldn’t have made it very far.

    3. Igor Alexander Says:

      I don’t know about this book. It seems like your typical blowharding from a jewish supremacist. Note that the NA reviewer makes a point of saying that it doesn’t contain any footnotes.

    4. Tim McGreen Says:

      In an apocalyptic version of the end of history, Cantor declares that the end is near because “the Jews have fulfilled their sinister role in history, which is to destroy civilization. They have been a blight to the world. . . . The Jews served their own purpose, and no other. . . . For three thousand years this parasitic people lived and propagated like alien bloodsuckers and imparted their poisonous ideas to mankind. . . . Now the Jews’ innate evil qualities will be perpetuated forever by intermarriage through the bloodlines of millions of human hosts and diffused through American, Arab, and other societies.” (p. 434)

      [This review from Amazon is better than the NA one, IMO.]

      This book is both really good and really bad., March 1, 2003
      By zonaras (Jimbo’s House of Pie) – (TOP 1000 REVIEWER)

      SACRED CHAIN is a fun book to read for anyone interested in history, and especially the influence that religion and economics has had in it. The book is very well written and surprisingly lucid and easy to follow, not a single part of it was uninteresting. What the SACRED CHAIN represents is the pure, unmitigated view of Establishment history. There are few in the sea as hypocritical as this fish. Cantor’s analysis and summary of 3,000 years of Jewish history is interpreted in only two ways: Marx’s dialectic materialism and whether or not a social movement, religion, government, etc. was beneficial to the Jews economically.

      Cantor explains everything in Marxist terms–that all events and ideas in history are shaped by an individual’s or group’s economic status. And anything is good as long as it helped the Jews in general. Communist leader Trotsky/Bronstein is lauded as being an avenger of the Jews upon the peasants of the pro-Czarist Christians of the Ukraine. But earlier on, it is acknowledged that these peasants actually had legitamate grievances against Jews in the region that provoked a pogrom in earlier centuries. Another example is where Cantor praises Jewish anthropologist Franz Boas as being the foremost propagator of the idealogy that all races and cultures of mankind are equal, but on the next page Cantor goes on about the Jews’ “superior genes,” and his belief that “Jews have to be better than everyone else.” Cantor is in constant awareness of “anti-Semitism,” and references to the Holocaust can be found on every page. He even accuses the authors of the New Testament Gospels of being hatemongers who would have had no problem if their writings inspired the Holocaust. As for the scattered Jewish communities around the globe in the latter half of the twentieth century, Cantor judges their worth by how much they did to stop the Holocaust.

      For a social policy, he likes to see non-Jews following free-market capitalism and moral relativism. But as for Jews, he wants them to be racially conscious (he figures the intermarraige rate of Jews with non-Jews a type of “Holocaust”), and devoted to (some) of their old traditions and religion. Cantor’s analysis of the Bible period is terrible, because he does not cite any sources to where he gets his information, so the book is one long Norman Cantor’s opinion of everything. In fact, on the back cover, a review is quoted praising Cantor for not concealing his biases. This stands in sharp contrast to a writer from any other ethnic group. Imagine if someone were to write a biased history of the Anglo-Saxons of Britain and Germany, and after catalouging their history and speculating on their religious outlook, philosophy and technical achievements, said that white Anglo-Saxons were just “better than anybody else?” Again the liberal double standard applies in writing the history books.

      SACRED CHAIN is intentionally biased, praised for it. It is well worth reading, because some the massive influence of the Jews upon the West is catalouged, but take every statement Cantor makes with a couple grains of salt.

      3.0 out of 5 stars

    6. Igor Alexander Says:

      The book itself seems to reinforce Kevin MacDonald’s theory about jewish intellectual movements pretty well. Jews don’t believe their own crap; it’s all for gentile consumption.

      It’s fascinating to listen to the loxists decry “racism” and then go on and on about the superiority of their genes. They can’t help themselves. It’s their genetic weak spot.

    7. Igor Alexander Says:

      Thanks for fixing the typos in that passage, Tim. :)

    8. half soldier Says:

      Jews have no such thing as a history, they are an evolved maggot, unable to get out of the garbage can and become an adult fly they have to be moved about by brownian motion much the same way a turd disintegrates in a toilet… It is true that the jews can destroy a slave population, but a nation of Aryan warriors would react to these desert bandits with such visciousness that the maggots would shrivel up like a slug in a barrel of NaCl. If it takes the end of History to get rid of these scabs so be it, lets blow the whole thing to an atom

    9. half soldier Says:

      Fukk, who wants to live in world full un0/dos/quatro/ocho jews.

      Another review from Amazon:

      “Biased, but thought provoking, April 7, 2007
      By Ross (Boston, MA)

      I found little or no facts in the book, mostly biased opinions. Some facts were totally off: Rav Nachman was from Breslav, not Bratislav; Trotsky made no effort to save the Jews from pogroms, etc…”

      Obviously this Norman Cantor, like most loxists, has a pre-Stalin commie fetish.

    11. half soldier Says:

      I’ve got a book titled Gaia, by an English Author, he describes what the Earth would be like without the actions of an intelligence that creates the world of life, he terms this intelligence “Gaia” mother earth… In the world without this intelligence(life where things reach an equilibrium, we would have an atmosphere much like that of Venus with an atmosphere consisting of 98%CO2/0xygen less than a trace vs. what we have with the Gaia regulate atmosphere of 78% Nitrogen and 21% Oxygen. In short life under the conditions of Venus would not exist.. The jews are the agents of death, no matter what they do in any profession, physics, medicine, you name it they have the Midas touch. Reminds me of Oliver Wendell Holmes saying “if you threw all the materia medica into the ocean it would be so much worse for the fishes, and so much better for manking.” Well we can’t make throwing out the jews worse for the fishes without making it worse for ourselves.

    12. half soldier Says:

      The jews are the Caspian Carps of the world

    13. half soldier Says:

      Don’t think diluted jews will save the World, we need to make them into less harmful , but I’m not sure soap made from the chosens carcass would be anything less than poison

    14. half soldier Says:

      One drop of jew in your bloodstream is still poison

    15. half soldier Says:

      Death and a jew world order are synonymous

    16. sean gruber Says:

      Jew-Gentile interbreeding simply means the parasite spreading through the host.

    17. half soldier Says:

      Lets not drive the jews from our shores, but make the kwa their final resting place

    18. Tom McReen Says:

      Take a look at all the half-jews in Hollywood. Then observe that they mostly ‘raise their children jewish’ or ‘celebrate Christmas and Hannukah’.

    19. Henry Says:

      “Take a look at all the half-jews in Hollywood. ”

      I never cease to be amazed. Especially by the half-breeds and quarter-breeds, some of whom can “pass” extremely well. The list is endless.

      Just the other day, I stumbled across the biog. of Claudette Colbert. I had always assumed she was a gentile (though I never saw how she had the looks or qualifications to become a big movie star). Well, it turns out that her mother’s maiden name was Loew (not French at all, but very Jewish), her father was a “banker”, and in private life Claudette was married to Dr. Joel Pressman. The article never explicitly SAID she was Jewish, but I can read between the lines.

    20. Henry Says:

      “observe that they mostly ‘raise their children jewish’ or ‘celebrate Christmas and Hannukah’.”

      I’ve read that Pat Boone brags that they have a “bi-faith family”, or some term like that. What kind of strange hybrid is that supposed to be?

    21. Tim McGreen Says:

      If there’s a Jewish parent, then the kids are raised as Jews, period. There’s no such thing as “bi-faith” families where Jews are concerned. The mischling belongs to them, like Rosemary Woodhouse’s baby.

    22. Tom McReen Says:

      “Newitz was born in 1969, the daughter of two English teachers — her mother teaching high school and her father at community college — and grew up in Irvine, California. She calls herself “biethnic” because her father is Jewish and her mother is a white Southerner and former Methodist.[1]”

    23. half soldier Says:

      MARRYING A JEW IS WORSE AND MORE TREASONOUS THAN BEDDING DOWN WITH A NIGGER,, THESE MISCHLINGS WILL ALL SERVE THE JEWS BIDDING, AND THAT IS TO DESTROY THE ARYAN… I HAVE A COUSIN (FEMALE) WHO MARRYIED ONE SUCH MISCHLING, AND HE WORKS FOR AN OIL COMPANY, NOW SHE’S AS MUCH A JEW AS HE IS SPORTING A STAR OF DAVID, AND OH VEY THE POOR LIL PICKANNIES IN VENEZUELA , WHEN I WENT TO THE FUNERAL OF HER MOTHER IN MISSISSIPI , THE LOCAL PASTOR WAS BENDING OVER TO KISS BIG JEWS TOE, AND OH HOW WE NEED TO OPEN OUR DOORS TO THE POOR LIL NIGGERS. I KNOW ONE THING EVERY JEWS HATES WHITE SOUTHERNERS, MUCH WORSE THAN THEY DID NAZIS, BUT THEY’LL TRY TO GRAB THEIR WOMEN IF THEY SEE A FINANCIAL ADVANTAGE TO IT.

    24. half soldier Says:

      THE CONFEDERACY MADE A BIG MISTAKE THINKING JEWS WERE WHITE, HELL THE SECY. OF STATE JUDAH BENJAMIN WAS A DAMN JEW, WELL AFTER THE WAR HE SKEEDADDLED TO BRITAIN TAKING ALONG PERHAPS WHATEVER GOLD THE CONFEDERATES HAD IN RESERVE.

    25. Tim McGreen Says:

      In reality, the Union was more racist than the South was. The Confederate army had Mulattoes, Creoles, Mestizoes and Red Indians fighting side by side with White soldiers. Some of them even served as Confederate officers. By contrast, the Union troops were tightly segregated and Negro units were always commanded by White officers. And the Jew bankers in Europe tried to financially support the Confederacy, so like Half Soldier says, the South wasn’t Jew-wise.

      Still, I don’t blame the Rebs for wanting to break away from the Union, with its greedy Capitalist bankers and industrialists, along with those pain-in-the-ass Elizabeth Cady Stanton Feminists, Abolitionists and Quakers.
