Introduction: Persecution or Prosecution? Jewish Tyranny and Anti-Semitism Through the Ages

Part I: BC - 1899

950-930 BC
The tribe of Judah (Jews; and also another tiny tribe called the Benjaminites) are kicked out of the Israelite tribe (which is actually a group of tribes), and they resettle in southern Canaan (Palestine). They are kicked out because they are regarded as troublemakers and rebels, who do not follow the others in the Israelite tribe, especially regarding the issue of "one God for all."

400 BC (approx.)
The now-separate Jewish religion (rabbinical Judaism as generally known today*) officially begins, but in oral form at first. It maintains that the Judah are the "chosen people of God" (their God is Jehovah), and that all other people are inferior to the Judah. In other words, the first "official" bigotry in history, long before Christianity. (*Note that there is a difference between "Old Testament Israel" and the more modern "rabbinical Judaism").

4 BC
Jesus Christ is born.

30 AD
Jews murder Jesus Christ, or rather, have him killed, as some prefer. The event in sum: Jesus is brought before Pilate charged with various crimes. Pilate declares him innocent. The crowd of Jews angrily demand his death. "When Pilate saw that he could prevail nothing, but that rather a tumult was made, he took water, and washed his hands before the multitude, saying, I am innocent of the blood of this just person: see ye to it. Then answered all the people, and said, His blood be on us, and on our children." (Matthew 27:24-25)

66 AD
Jews revolt against Rome. Masses of Jews rioted and wiped out the small Roman garrison stationed in Jerusalem. Cestius Gallus, the Roman ruler in neighboring Syria, sent in a larger force of soldiers. But the insurgent Jews routed them as well. The next exchange would be different. The Romans returned with 60,000 heavily armed professional troops. The Romans first attacked in Galilee in the north, where they killed and sold into slavery an estimated 100,000 Jews. The Jews who survived the Galilee massacre fled to Jerusalem for their final stand and prepared for a siege by the Romans. During the summer of 70 AD, the Romans breached the walls of Jerusalem and initiated an orgy of violence and destruction. Shortly thereafter, they destroyed the Second Temple. It is estimated that as many as one million Jews died in the revolt against Rome.

132-135 AD
The Bar-Kokhba Revolt. The Jews organize guerilla forces and, in 123 AD, begin launching surprise terrorist attacks against the Romans. Emperor Hadrian brought the "Sixth Ferrata" legion into Judea to deal with the terrorism. In 132 AD, following Shimon Bar-Kokhba, the Jews captured 50 strongholds in Palestine and 985 undefended towns and villages, including Jerusalem. Hadrian dispatched General Publus Marcellus, governor of Syria, to help Rufus, but the Jews defeated both Roman leaders. The Jews then invaded the coastal region and the Romans began sea battles against them. The turning point of the war came when Hadrian sent into Judea general Julius Severus (from Britain), along with govenor Hadrianus Quintus Lollius Urbicus (from Germania). By that time, there were 12 army legions from Egypt, Britain, Syria and other areas in Palestine. Due to the large number of Jewish terrorists, instead of waging open war, Severus besieged Jewish fortresses and held back food until the Jews grew weak. Outright war followed. The Romans destroyed all 50 Jewish fortresses and 985 villages. In 135 AD, Hadrian's army besieged Bethar and on the 9th of Av (anniversary of the destruction of the first and second Temples), the walls of Bethar fell. The Romans killed every Jew in Bethar. Then the Romans plowed Jerusalem with a yoke of oxen. The Romans sold Jews into slavery and deported many to Egypt. Judean settlements were not rebuilt. Jerusalem was renamed "Aelia Capitolina" and the Jews were forbidden to live there. Hadrian changed the country's name from Judea to Syria Palestina. In the years following the revolt, Emperor Hadrian discriminated against all "Judeo-Christian" sects, but reserved "special attention" for religious Jews. He forbade Torah study, Sabbath observance, circumcision, Jewish courts, meeting in synagogues, and other ritual practices. This revolt precipitated the Jewish diaspora leaving Judea and the movement from temple worship to decentralized Rabbinical Judiasm. In addition, that great document of Jewish ethnocentrism, the Talmud Yerushalmi, was assembled in Tiberias in the years following the final Jewish defeat.

500-1300+ AD
According to Encyclopedia Britannica, Jewish merchants come to dominate trade in the Middle Ages (with the exception of Scandinavia to which they were never granted access). This also includes control of the eastern trade routes to Asia. Their power will remain virtually intact until they are thrown out of West European countries in the century preceding the Renaissance. The first country to do so is Great Britain in 1290; France follows its example in 1306, and country after country soon do the same. Spain and Portugal are the last to ban the Jews, as late as in 1492 and 1498; by then they had access only to a few German city states, part of northern Italy, and the papal possessions surrounding Avignon. Their influence is also heavily restricted by the Fourth Laterenian Council of the Catholic Church..

When the Jews lose their power, the economy once again rests in European hands. Trade, which had been treated as a shady oligopoly, is now subject to fair competition, and fantastic economic progress is made. White patrons use some of their wealth to finance artists and scholars, and the Renaissance sweeps over Europe like a fresh, new spring. The new culture and learning is based almost entirely on ancient Greek and Roman scriptures, the cradle of European civilization, and the Renaissance will remain forever a great example of what a free White people can accomplish.

In Eastern Europe, however, trade largely remains in Jewish hands, and no commercial progress is made.

740 AD
In Asia (northeast of Turkey), an entire Mongol/Turkish tribe, called the Khazars, allegedly convert to Judaism en mass, all 4,000 of them, on orders of their leader, Bulan. This will allegedly become the Ashkenazim (largest) branch of world Jewry, although many now doubt this Khazar claim.

Jewish influence, mainly of Khazar origin, has increased in Poland ever since the 900s, and by the 12th century it has reached a point where even money production has been made a Jewish monopoly. Coins are imprinted both in Polish and Hebrew. Polish history during the following three centuries will show a long struggle for supremacy between Jews and Gentiles, with the Jewish side given a boost by a large influx of Jews coming from the fallen Khazar kingdom in the 1300s. Poland has every condition necessary to become one of Europe's greatest nations, but because of the Jewish grip on its economy Poland will never evolve to take its rightful place among the Powers.

Jews are kicked out of the following countries, not once but many times: France, Hungary, Belgium, Austria, Prussia, Spain, Italy, Netherlands, and most other countries in Europe, Christian or not. They are kicked out due to their collective, objectively measurable negative impact on these cultures, not due to some groundless, irrational, blind "hatred," as Jews today would have you believe.

POLAND - Jews of Poland were granted rights like nowhere else in Europe. They were even granted their own autonomous legal system, known as the kahal, which allowed them to adjudicate intra-Jewish disputes without recourse to the Polish Christian legal system. This autonomy, in turn, necessitated the intensive study of the Talmud... Largely as a result of the concessions of the Polish crown which began with the Statute of Kalisz, Poland became known throughout Europe as the "paradisus Judeorum," the paradise of the Jews. When persecutions would flare up in the traditionally Jewish sections of Europe, in the German principalities, particularly in the urban centers of the Rhein valley, the Jews who wished to escape their persecution inevitably headed east toward Poland, taking their language, "juedische Deutsch," or Yiddish with them... Jews did not assimilate in Poland; most of them did not learn the language of the Christian Poles, because, other than rudimentary commerce and illicit sexual activity, the Jews had virtually no contact with the Poles even though they had lived in their country for centuries. The Jews established their own state within a state there." ("The Revolutionary Jew and His Impact on World History" by E. Michael Jones, Culture Wars magazine, September 2003.)

Jews expelled from England, the first of the great general expulsions of the Middle Ages.

Jews expelled from France.

Jews expelled from France again.

Throughout Spain, France, Germany and Austria, Jews poison Christian wells and other water sources with the corpses of dead plague victims. Christians retaliate with the Black Death Massacres.

SPAIN - "Resentment against usury combined with the suspicion that the Jews were using their influence to thwart the reconquista, or take control themselves of the already reconquered regions with the secret help of the Moors led to the riots of the late 14th century. If the monarchs did nothing to curb the Jewish influence, the outraged citizens simply took the law into their own hands and widespread bloodshed was the result. Leniency only created more violence, as in the case of Pedro the Cruel, who was perceived as giving "his Jewish friends complete control of his government; a circumstance that led his enemies to call him a Jewish changeling, and contributed to his denunciation by a Pope as 'a facilitator of Jews and Moors, a propagator of infidelity, and a slayer of Christians.'" By the end of the 14th century, Spain's Christian population, convinced that the Jews were "planning to rule Spain, enslave the Christians, and establish a New Jerusalem in the West" began acting on their suspicions by taking the law into their own hands. Widespread bloodshed was one result. Widespread conversion, both sincere and forced, was another. Resentment against the Jews had led to widespread rioting in 1391. ("The Revolutionary Jew and His Impact on World History" by E. Michael Jones, Culture Wars magazine, September 2003.)

SPAIN - Espina wrote Fortalitium Fidei, one of the most bitterly anti-Jewish documents in history. Espina suggested that if an Inquisition were established in Castile, large numbers of them would be found to be only pretending Christians, engaged in judaizing and in undermining the Faith they professed. ("The Revolutionary Jew and His Impact on World History" by E. Michael Jones, Culture Wars magazine, September 2003.)

    POLAND - The alliance between Polish magnates and Jews "concentrated the wealth into fewer and fewer hands, especially during the period of intense Jewish colonization in the Ukraine during the 80-year period between 1569 and 1648. Since the leases involved monopoly rights, the Jewish tax-farmers could increase the political power of their wealthy patrons, and their own wealth and influence as well, by driving the smaller independent landowners to the wall. Increasing their power in the short term, however, only increased the magnitude and violence of the reaction when it eventually came... There was no Inquisition in Poland. As a result, what might have happened in Spain did happen there. Poland became a model for tolerance, but in doing so paved the way for its own extinction at the end of the 18th century... The Jesuits warred with the Jews over the mind of the Polish oligarchs, but there was no Inquisition in Poland, and no Counter-Reformation. Calvinism was spreading among these nobles virtually unchecked by any official Catholic resistance. As a result, Poland became, in Heinrich Graetz's words, " a second Babylon for the Jews." ("The Revolutionary Jew and His Impact on World History" by E. Michael Jones, Culture Wars magazine, September 2003.)

    By the death of Sigismund II in 1572, the Jews had attained enough power to name his successor in collaboration with the Porte in Constantinople, the Huguenots in France, and the English Protestants. The man who brokered the deal was Solomon ben Nathan Ashkenazi, adviser to Grand Visier Mohammed Sokoli. Solomon Ashkenazi was a German Jew by birth who had migrated, as so many of his race had, to the paradise of the Jews, where he eventually became chief physician to King Sigismund. He then migrated by way of Venice to Constantinople, where he served the sultan as faithfully as he had served the Polish king. Solomon Ashkenazi had succeeded Joseph Nasi, also an adviser to the sultan, as "a sort of unofficial leader of world Jewry." Like Nasi, Ashkenazi orchestrated events following the death of Sigismund from behind the scenes. "Christian cabinets," Graetz informs us, "did not suspect that the course of events which compelled them to side with one party or the other was set in motion by a Jewish hand. This was especially so in the case of the election of the Polish king. ("The Revolutionary Jew and His Impact on World History" by E. Michael Jones, Culture Wars magazine, September 2003.)

    William Shakespeare creates the negative Jewish character "Shylock," a money-lending Jew (surprise), for his play The Merchant of Venice. Jews have often since tried to ban the play from being performed.

    POLAND - "Jews assumed total control of the liquor business, which meant that, on the one hand, they could manipulate the price of grain by diverting it to more profitable use as distilled spirits and that, on the other hand, it was in their interest to engage in the intense promotion of alcohol consumption, to maximize profits during the short-term of the lease. This led to chronic drunkenness, decreased productivity, and, of course, increased resentment against Jews, as a group which was perceived as constantly seeking to exploit the weaknesses of the majority population as a way of enhancing their own wealth and power." ("The Revolutionary Jew and His Impact on World History" by E. Michael Jones, Culture Wars magazine, September 2003.)

    POLAND - The Golden Age of Polish Jews lasted from 1500 to 1648. By 1634 Poland had become the largest country in Europe. Its territory extended from the Baltic almost to the Black Sea and from Silesia in the west to what is now the heart of the Ukraine, two hundred kilometers east of the Dnieper River. As a result, by the middle of the 17th century, as much as 60 percent of Poland's population was not ethnically Polish - they were Jews. An orgy of violence followed, eventually dragging the Polish state into extinction. The story of Poland was in many ways the story of Imperial Rome writ small. ("The Revolutionary Jew and His Impact on World History" by E. Michael Jones, Culture Wars magazine, September 2003.)

    POLAND - In 1647, as one of the preconditions that prepared the way for a Polish crusade against the Ottoman empire, the Cossacks were promised full civil rights and enfranchisement over a period of time as Polish citizens. That meant "the harsh exploitation by Jewish holders of short-time leases was to be lessened by banning the collection of such payments as church fees for funerals, weddings, baptisms, etc." It also meant that disobedience to the tax-farmers was no longer to be considered a capital crime. It also meant that the Jesuits would no longer be assigned to Cossack territory in the Southern Ukraine, and that as a result they would no longer pressure Orthodox to submit to Rome's authority. Finally, it meant that the Jews were to be evicted from the southern Ukraine along with the Jesuits. When the bill came to a vote in 1648, the Seym, dominated by the alliance of huge landowners and their Jewish administrators, defeated the measure, providing a classic instance of how the concentration of wealth and power into a few hands can enable that group to pursue its own interests, with total disregard of the common good, over the brink of that self-interest into national disaster. The situation in Poland during the first half of the 17th century was roughly analogous to the situation in Spain a century and a half earlier. Spain was the only other country in Europe with an equally influential Jewish population. As in Poland, many Sephardic Jews engaged in behavior that caused resentment among the lower classes. During the famine in Cuenca in 1326, Jewish usurers charaged farmers 40 percent interest on the money they needed to borrow to buy grain for sowing. Blasphemy had become a Jewish custom in Spain. Moses, according to Walsh, "had condemned blasphemers to death. Yet it was a custom of many Jews to blaspheme the Prophet for whom Moses had warned them to prepare." The Jews, as a result, "were disliked not for practicing things that Moses taught, but for doing the things he had forbidden. They had profited hugely on the sale of fellow-beings as slaves, and practiced usury as a matter of course, and flagrantly." Blasphemy went hand in hand with Jewish proselytizing, which often took place by compulsion. Jews would force Christian servants to get circumcised as a condition of employment. They would encourage people to whom they had lent money to abjure Christ." ("The Revolutionary Jew and His Impact on World History" by E. Michael Jones, Culture Wars magazine, September 2003.)

    A clever Jewish rabbi, using common Christian-based religious arguments, convinces a high government official (Cromwell, in fact) in England that Jews should be allowed to return to England (having been kicked out 400 years earlier). All of England will soon regret this event.

    Portuguese Sephardim Jews are paid to leave Amsterdam.

    Jews dominate the negro-slave trade in NorthEastern America, especially in Newport, Rhode Island, owning many of the ships. Newport, RI is home of America's very first Jewish synagogue. Coincidence? No.

    By the time Poland was partitioned for the third and final time in 1795, 80 percent of the world's Jews lived there.

    The Russian government hopes to integrate the sectarian Jews by making school attendance compulsory and free-of-charge for all Jewish children. A school education is a luxury all over the world at that time, and very few Russian children can afford it; as a result Jews become the best-educated part of Russian society, and their power increases significantly.

    Napoleon, knowing of the bad reputation of Jews, decides to settle the already-centuries-long "Jewish question." He orders 71 Jews (46 Rabbis, 25 laymen) to Paris. He presents them with a list of questions, but is not satisfied with the first answers, so he later convenes a second forum. The questions (12 in all) deal with Jewish attitudes about marriage, usury, loyalty, religion, etc. This is the famous "freeing of the Jews," because it results in Jews being granted legal rights that they previously had not enjoyed. Jews lie about their attitudes concerning assimilation, usury, etc. They do not assimilate, or amend their various supremacist attitudes.

    After the Battle of Waterloo (1815), Nathan Rothschild steals millions of dollars by falsely portraying the outcome of that battle in English stock markets. This enormous amount of money is used to establish the Rothschild family as the leaders of international banking/finance. (This also benefits the community of Jews as a whole; many millions of dollars are given to Jewish causes and charities by the Rothschilds.)

    May 5. Jew Karl Marx born in the city of Trier in Rheinish Prussia. His family later converted to Protestanism. The family was petty-bourgeois; his father was a lawyer. Marx would later become instrumental in constructing a revolutionary theory that would would be used as a destructive ideological tool all over the world. At a minimum, over 100 million people have been killed in conflicts in which one side used Marxist or Communist ideology as a pretext for its acts of aggression against more established orders. Marxism is at its core a doctrine of alienation that seeks to alienate economic classes, ethnic groups, generations, and even genders. Its proponents have used economic, political, philosophical, psychological and even aesthetic arguments to promote its radical, wrong-headed world view.

    Author Charles Dickens creates "Fagin," a negative character, a criminal leader Jew for his novel Oliver Twist.

    Jew Karl Marx publishes The Communist Manifesto, a book about what is basically an offshoot of traditional Jewish communal living called "Communism." This book is designed to attack traditional Western values and morals, and is nothing more than a blueprint for long-term sociopolitical and economic revenge.

    Mid to Late 1800s
    Great German composer Richard Wagner (1813-1883), early inspiration to philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche (1844-1900), is highly critical of Jews and Judaism and the danger they present to the German people. "Whoever wants to understand National Socialist Germany must know Wagner." (Quote attributed to Hitler in The Rise and Fall of The Third Reich by William Shirer.)

    A rabbi's wife, Harriet Beecher Stowe, writes the novel Uncle Tom's Cabin. Although she has never set foot in the South this didn't prevent her from penning this anti-Southern book that greatly exaggerated the negatives surrounding Southern plantation life for slaves. In 1862, when Harriet visited President Lincoln, legend claims that he greeted her as "the little lady who made this big war" between the states. Even if the propaganda in this book were true, can any intelligent person really believe that the mythical Uncle Tom would have fared better if he had been born in Africa? A century and a half later, in 2002, slavery is still practiced in parts of Africa. http://www.skrewdriver.net./wp10.html

    British Prime Minister Jew Benjamin Disraeli warns Europe, in a speech to the House of Commons, that Jews are dangerous to Western, conservative ideas. Few listen. (The Controversy of Zion by Douglas Reed, 1978/1985, Dolphin/Veritas, page 166, softcover. Disraeli telling the House of Commons in 1852: ..."men of Jewish race are found at the head of every one of them [the secret societies, such as the Illuminati]."

    Birth of Franz Boas (1858-1942), the founder of 'cultural anthropology.' Up to Boas' time, anthropology was what is now called 'physical anthropology.' Anthropologists would interpret the physical artifacts from previous cultures and civilizations working along side archaeologists. Cultural anthropology is different. The cultural anthropologist trudges off to the Third World and lives with a primitive people to 'study their culture.' This of course provides a lot more opportunity to focus on the aspects of a primitive culture that tend to support the anthropologist's socio-political world view. Hence, we once again see the Jew gravitating to a subjective academic discipline (cf. psychoanalysis and sociology) which he can then manipulate to serve the interests of Jews. Boas trained famous cultural anthropologists such as Margaret Mead (cf. Margaret Mead, 1928) and Ruth Benedict. Background: Boas was one of a number of German-Jewish intellectuals who came of age in the increasingly conservative, post-1848, Bismarckian Germany. The son of active liberal Jews, Boas was a student of physics and geography during the time that Bismarck was consolidating an alliance of Junker landowners, high-ranking civil bureaucrats, and military officers into a unified German state. Boas saw his future in Germany as increasingly dim (!), as growing 'anti-Semitism' made it less and less likely for a Jew to receive a teaching position. With this in mind, Boas like other Eastern European Jews, looked to America as a place without existing defense mechanisms in place to counter Jewish ethnocentrism and its manifestations. Sympathetic Jewish history site reviews Boas here: http://www.suite101.com/article.cfm/jewish_american_history/32804

    U.S. General Ulysses S. Grant issues an order expelling Jews from several states, due to certain negative activity by them. Jews complain (as usual, everywhere and always) to President Lincoln, who reverses the order.

    April 22. The leader of Russian communist revolution Vladimir Lenin is born to Russian father and Jewish mother.

    February 9. RUSSIA - Jewish communist revolutionary Grigory D. Goldenberg shoots and kills the governor of Kharkov, Kropotkin. Coincidentally, governer Kropotkin was the cousin of a famous anarchist who was also named Kropotkin.

    March 1. Jew Grinevetsky assassinates Russian Czar Alexander II. Grinevetski, Rysakov, Mikhailov and Emelianov left the home of Hessia [aka Hesya or Jessa] Helfmann to assassinate the Russian Czar Alexander II with bombs. Helfmann had stored the explosives used to kill Alexander II at her home. All of these people were members of Narodnaya Volya [aka National Will, aka People's Will], a Marxist revolutionary group. The first bomb thrown at Alexander II failed to kill him. Grinevetski threw the second bomb, which killed both Alexander II and himself. Helfmann and Alexander's killer Grinevetski were both jews. Mark Natanson, founder of the socialist/Marxist group Land and Liberty, was also a jew [Narodnaya Volya was an offshoot of Land and Liberty]. Natanson was the uncle of famous anarchist jew Alex Berkman. Narodnaya Volya was probably the world's first true political terrorist group. Not surprisingly, jews pretend there was no reason why pogroms were launched against jews in Russia after the murder of Alexander II -- no reason, that is, besides "irrational, unfounded anti-semetism."

    Thousands of Ashkenazim Jews from Eastern Europe begin flooding into the United States. By 1900, they will number 500,000 from just the past decade alone. By WWI, another 1,250,000 will have arrived in America. Unknown to most White Christians, many of these Jews will start or join Communist or leftist movements in the U.S. Many of these Jews were involved in radical political activity prior to their arrival in the U.S.

    Jews get an early start on advocating non-White immigration into America when leftist Jew Emma Lazarus writes her multiculturalist poem, "The New Colossus." The poem will -- of course -- end up on a plaque under the Statue of Liberty in New York. That poem wrongly suggests -- by design! -- that America is supposed to be a soup of ethnic groups.

    Leo Pinsker, of Odessa, leads the first known large Zionist movement, a movement to 1) give Jews a homeland; and 2) further Jewish imperialism. (This is slightly before Theodor Herzl becomes the more well-known leader of Zionism as a movement.)

    Jew Franz Boas publishes "On Alternating Sounds." With this essay, Boas plants the radical seed of what would become "cultural relativism," undermining both the racial-scientific and cultural evolutionist models of human difference, both of which saw White, Western European Christianity as the highest state of human achievement from which all other ways of life were more primitive deviations. Boas saw these people not as examples of what "we" once were like, nor as examples of retardation or degeneration, but merely as alternative cultural forms of equal value.

    April 20. Adolf Hitler, the man destined to crystallize the conflict between jews and their gentile host nations, as well as mount the 20th century's most effective defense against the jewish assault on the world (e.g., jewish communism), is born.

    Baron Maurice de Hirsch, "a Jewish financier and philanthropist dedicated his fortune to the welfare of Eastern European Jews at a time when worsening conditions in Russia made mass emigration a necessity." Hirsch "envisioned the transformation of Eastern European Jewry into a class of independent farmers and handicraftsmen in the New World." (Sure, Jews are world-renowned for their land-working/farming skills. Ha!) He established the New York based Baron de Hirsch Fund in 1891 to facilitate this goal (i.e., to facilitate Russian jew migration to America via the ruse that they'd be hardworking farmers).

    Jewish anarchist Emma Goldman and two comrades conspire to assassinate millionaire philanthropist Henry Clay Frick. The actual assassination attempt is carried out by jew Alexander Berkman but it is unsuccessful. Henry Clay Frick fortunately survives his wound.

    The "French" military captain Jew Alfred Dreyfus, of the infamous "Dreyfus Affair," is arrested and accused of spying/high treason, and is convicted. A retrial is forced by the public outcry of a well-known leftist writer; Dreyfus is later cleared of the charges, rightly or wrongly.

    Jewish supremacist hatred: "Spirit the penniless population across the frontier by denying it employment... Both the process of expropriation and the removal of the poor must be carried out discreetly and circumspectly." Theodore Herzl, founder of the World Zionist Organization, speaking of the Arabs of Palestine, Complete Diaries, June 12, 1895 entry.

    The first Zionist Congress meets in either Munich or Switzerland (these claims vary) to discuss how to reclaim (in this case, steal) Palestine.

    March. Mark Twain's essay "Concerning the Jews" appears in Harper's Magazine. Some excerpts:
    -- "The Jew has his other side. He has some discreditable ways, though he has not a monopoly of them, because he cannot get entirely rid of vexatious Christian competition. We have seen that he seldom transgresses the laws against crimes of violence. Indeed, his dealings with courts are almost restricted to matters connected with commerce. He has a reputation for various small forms of cheating, and for practising oppressive usury, and for burning himself out to get the insurance, and for arranging cunning contracts which leave him an exit but lock the other man in, and for smart evasions which find him safe and comfortable just within the strict letter of the law, when court and jury know very well that he has violated the spirit of it. He is a frequent and faithful and capable officer in the civil service, but he is charged with an unpatriotic disinclination to stand by the flag as a soldier."
    -- "'Can fanaticism alone account for [the persistent and implacabe hatred of Jews]?' Years ago I used to think that it was responsible for nearly all of it, but latterly I have come to think that this was an error. Indeed, it is now my conviction that it is responsible for hardly any of it."
    -- "I wish to...refer to a remark made by one of the Latin historians...Christianity was so new that the people of Rome had hardly heard of it, and had but confused notions of what it was. The substance of the remark was this: Some Christians were persecuted in Rome through error, they being 'mistaken for Jews.' The meaning seems plain. These pagans had nothing against Christians, but they were quite ready to persecute Jews. For some reason or other they hated a Jew before they even knew what a Christian was. May I not assume, then, that the persecution of Jews is a thing which antedates Christianity and was not born of Christianity? I think so."
    -- "In the cotton States, after the war, the simple and ignorant negroes made the crops for the white planter on shares. The Jew came down in force, set up shop on the plantation, supplied all the negro's wants on credit, and at the end of the season was proprietor of the negro's share of the present crop and of part of his share of the next one. Before long, the whites detested the Jew, and it is doubtful if the negro loved him."

    Jews in American attempt to ban William Shakespeare's plays, and various Christian symbols, all over the U.S. (Henry Ford documents this in his newspaper The Dearborn Independent).
    [Note: This persists to present day. Cf. December 2, 2001. Jews effectively ban Santa Claus from Kensington, Maryland. 100 Christian men protest by donning Santa suits; one man carries a sign that reads, "If Jews can ban Santa, why can't we ban Jews?"]
