The Sixth Protocol --
"We shall soon begin to establish huge monopolies, colossal reservoirs of wealth, upon which even the big Gentile properties will be dependent to such an extent that they will all fall together with the government credit on the day following the political catastrophe. The economists here present must carefully weigh the significance of this combination. We must develop by every means the importance of our super-government, representing it as the protector and benefactor of all who voluntarily submit to us.
"The aristocracy of the Gentiles as a political force has passed away. We need not take them into consideration. But, as owners of the land, they are harmful to us in that they are independent in their sources of livelihood. Therefore, at all costs, we must deprive them of their land.
"The best means to attain this is to increase the taxes and mortgage indebtedness. These measures will keep land ownership in a state of unconditional subordination. Unable to satisfy their needs by small inheritances, the aristocrats among the Gentiles will burn themselves out rapidly.
"At the same time it is necessary to encourage trade and industry vigorously and especially speculation, the function of which is to act as a counterpoise to industry. Without speculation, industry will cause private capital to increase and tend to improve the condition of Agriculture by freeing the land from indebtedness for loans by the land banks. It is necessary for industry to deplete the land both of laborers and capital, and, through speculations, transfer all the money of the world into our hands, thereby throwing the Gentiles into the ranks of the proletariat. The Gentiles will then bow before us to obtain the right to existence.
BOLSHEVISM AND ZIONISM
Communism works in the United States through precisely the same channels as it used in Russia and through the same agents - Revolutionary and Predatory Unionism, as distinct from Business and Uplift Unionism, and Jewish agitators. When Martens, the so-called Soviet Ambassador, "left" the United States after being deported, he appointed as the representative of Communism in the United States one Charles Recht, a Jew, a lawyer by profession, who maintained an office in New York. This office was the rendezvous of all the Jewish labor union leaders in the city, many of the labor leaders throughout the country, and frequently of American government officials and other political leaders known to be the henchmen of Jewish aspirations in the United States and sympathizers with predatory radicalism. The organization has since spread from coast to coast, from north to south. The situation of Communist headquarters in New York was, and is, important because from that center lines of authority and action radiate to all the other cities of the Union. New York is the laboratory in which the emissaries of revolution learn their lesson, and their knowledge is daily increased by the counsel and experience of travelling delegates straight out of Russia.
American citizens do not realize that all the public disturbances, the labor differences, strikes and political confusions of which they read are not mere sudden outbreaks, but the deliberately planned movements of leaders who know exactly what they are doing.
Mobs are methodical; there is always an intelligent core which gets done under the appearance of excitement what has been planned beforehand. Up through the French Revolution, up through the German Revolution, up through the Russian Revolution, and the world disorders since, came the previously chosen men, and to this day the groups thus raised to power have not lessened their power - and they are Jewish groups. Russia is not more Jewish controlled than France; Germany tried in vain to loosen the grip of Judah from her throat. So it is in America.
The first step of the Jewish organizations supporting Communism in the United States was the control and expansion of the Hebrew labor movement among the millions of immigrants during 50 years; with the view to eventual Jewish control of all labor unions. The Jews have captured American trade union movements as completely as if they had stormed them with the bayonet.
There is a mass of moving literature (mostly written by Jews) pretending to describe the glowing hearts with which these alien throngs of liberty-loving-democrats, workers' comrades, look upon America, their intense longing for the "American way of life," their love of the people and American institutions. The actions of these people and the utterances of their leaders all too clearly give the lie to this fair picture which gullible American Gentiles would fain believe.
The resistance offered to the "American way of life," consisting in the limitations put on the Americanization program, has been sufficient to convince alert observers that, so far as the Jewish invasion is concerned, it is not their desire to go the way America is going, but to influence America to go the way they are going. They talk a great deal of what they bring to America but nothing at all of what they found there. America is presented to them as a big piece of putty to be moulded as they desire. "The Melting Pot," a term which the Jewish writer Zangwill gave currency, is not a dignified name for the Republic, and it is more and more challenged as descriptive of the process that goes on. There are some substances in the pot that will not melt; but more significant still, there are rapidly increasing influences who want to melt the pot!
The two divisions of Jewish wealth and political power are - first, German Jewish, represented by the Schiffs, the Speyers, the Warburgs, the Kahns, the Lewisohns and the Guggenheims. These play the game with the aid of the financial resources of the non-Jews. The other division is composed of the Russian and Polish Jews who monopolize the lower ranks of trade and industry. Between them their grip and influence is absolute. They may sometimes have internecine quarrels regarding the division of the spoils, and eager publicists may zealously call attention to these quarrels as evidence of the utter lack of unity among the Jews, but in the Kehillah and elsewhere they understand each other quite well, and on the question of Jew vs. "goy" they are indivisibly one.
There is a distinction between what this Jewish coalition would do and what it could do, but its will and power never so closely correspond as when the non-Jewish element in the nation is asleep. Never are Jewish will and power so widely divorced as when the non-Jewish mind is alert. The only thing to fear is not the alert Jew, but the consequences of sleepiness among the Gentiles. The Jewish program is checked the moment it is perceived and identified.
There are more Communists in the United States than there are in Soviet Russia. Their aim is the same and their racial character is the same. If they have not yet been able to do in America what they have done in Eastern Europe, it is because of the greater dissemination of information, the higher degree of intelligence, and particularly the wider diffusion of the agencies of government, than ever obtained in Russia and Eastern Europe. The power house of Communist influence and propaganda in the United States is in the Jewish trade unions which, almost without exception, adhere to a Bolshevik program for the respective industries and for the country as a whole. The fact proves most embarrassing to the Jewish leaders in the recognized political parties very frequently. It is bad enough that Russian Bolshevism, Communism, should be so predominantly Jewish, but to confront the same situation in the United States is a problem which Jewish leaders have to use much ingenuity and deception to explain away or avoid. Yet the International Jew of America cannot be absolved from bearing sole responsibility for it. Russian Bolshevism came out of the East Side of New York where it was fostered by the encouragement - the religious, moral and financial encouragement - of Jewish leaders.
Leon Trotsky (Braunstein) was an East Sider. The forces which fostered what he stood for centered in the Kehillah and the American Jewish Committee. Both were interested in the work he set out to do - the overthrow of an established government, one of the allies of the United States in World War One. Russian Bolshevism was helped to its objective by Jewish gold from the United States - and by the ignorance and indolence of the Gentile citizens of the United States whose crimes of omission are almost as grave as those of bolshevik commission.
Now that the influence of Communism is found to be numerically stronger here than in Russia, the fact causes no little embarrassment to "patriotic" Jews. The big Jewish labor organizations are the direct offspring of the Jewish Socialist Bund of Russia. Bundists swarmed to the United States after the abortive revolution of 1905 at which time they failed to put Bolshevism over in Russia, and these Bundists gave their time to the Bolshevising of the Hebrew Trade Unions in America. An Agitation Bureau was formed which propagated radical Socialism through the medium of the Yiddish language. The Bundists incorporated in 1905 in New York an organization known as "The Workmen's Circle" and "swelled the ranks of the Jewish trade unions," to quote the Kehillah's Register. After a brief attempt to propagate Socialism without reference to the Jewish Question, it was given up, and in 1913 a resolution was adopted declaring that the whole purpose of the work was Jewish. This is attributed, in the Kehillah record, to the spread of "the idea of Jewish nationalism."
What amazes the student of the Jewish Question in the United States is the stupidity which permitted Jewish Bolshevism to flaunt itself so openly. The only explanation that seems at all adequate is that the Jews never dreamed that the American people would become sufficiently awake to challenge them. The occasional exposure of Jewish tactics in America comes as a surprise to the Jewish leaders, and is accounted for because they are confident they have gained too strong a grip on the American mind to make such challenges possible.
But, the Jewish leaders must admit that the Jewish Question does not consist in American citizens uncovering the facts and helping other citizens to become aware of them; the Jewish Question inheres in the facts themselves and in Jewish responsibility for the facts.
If it is "anti-Semitism" to say that Communism in the United States is Jewish, so be it; but to the unprejudiced mind it will look very like Americanism.
WILL JEWISH ZIONISM BRING ARMAGEDDON?
When the British Army passed into Jerusalem in the memorable capture of the city in 1917, the Protocols went in with it. A symbolic circle was thus closed, though not in the way the Protocolists had hoped. The man who carried the Protocols knew what they signified, and they were carried not in triumph but as the plans of the enemies of world liberty.
Zionism is the best advertised of all present Jewish activities and has exerted a greater influence upon world events than the average man realizes. In its more romantic aspects it makes an appeal to Christians as well as to Jews, because there are certain prophecies which are held to concern the return of the Jews to Jerusalem. When this return takes place, certain great events are scheduled to ensue.
Because of this admixture of the "religious" sentiment, it is sometimes difficult for a certain class of people to scrutinize modern Political Zionism. They have been too well propagandized into believing that political Zionism and the "return" promised by the prophets are the same thing. Having succumbed to the initial confusion of mistaking Judah for Israel they have entirely mistaken the ancient writings that relate to these two and have made the tribe of Judah (whence comes the name of Jew) the hub around which all history and humanity swing. Judah was the single tribe with which Israel could not live in peace over 2,000 years ago, and which has the baleful gift of stirring up the same kind of dissension today. Yet no one ever thought of charging the Ten Tribes of Israel with "anti-Semitism."
Zionism is challenging the attention of the world today because it is creating a situation out of which many believe the next war will come.*
EDITOR'S NOTE: *This prophetic paragraph appeared in the "Dearborn Independent," dated May 26, 1921. The conditions and activities leading up to World War II, and the present world conditions arising out of the Palestine imbroglio emphasize the prescience of the whole series of articles now reproduced in this edited edition.
To adopt a phraseology familiar to students of prophecy, it is believed by many students of world affairs that Armageddon will be the direct result of what is now beginning to be manifested in Palestine.
With Zionism as a dream of pious Jews this investigation has nothing to do. With Zionism as a political fact, every government is now compelled to have something to do. It is a bigger question than any other world question, it lies back of all world problems, large or small, national or international, and is rapidly proceeding under cover of many other interests.
It is worthy of note that Zionism in the active modern political sense took its rise racially and geographically where Bolshevism arose, namely, in Russia, and that there was always a close relationship between the Zionists of Russia and the New York Kehillah, as was evidenced by public utterances made in Russia after the revolution in which the Kehillah was extolled.
At the time war was declared in 1914, the Zionist Inner Actions Committee was spread about in various countries. For example: Dr. Schmarya Levin, of Berlin, was in the United States and remained there. He was a Russian rabbi, German scholar, and cosmopolitan. Although, in 1914, the Zionist center and seat of Inner Actions Committee was at Berlin, he remained in the United States and became recognized as the leader of the leaders of Zionism, until the great Jewish shift to Versailles. Another member of the Inner Actions Committee was Jacobson, who was in Constantinople.
"When he saw that Constantinople could no longer be a center of Zionist politics, he left and went to Copenhagen, Denmark, where in a neutral country he could be of practical usefulness to the Zionists by transmitting information and funds." ("Guide to Zionism," page 80).
In fact, the entire Inner Actions Committee, with headquarters in Berlin, moved freely through a war-locked world, the only two exceptions being Warburg and Hantke and there was no need for the Berlin Warburg to move about, for there were others who represented him.
Dr. Levin gave his sanction for the shifting of the center of Jewish gravity from Berlin to America, and "As early as August 80, 1914, a month after the outbreak of war, an extraordinary conference of American Zionists was called in New York."
What this change of seat meant, has formed the subject of much discussion. In 1914 the Jews apparently knew more about the probable duration of the Great War than did the principals. It was not to be a mere excursion through Belgium, as some fancied. There was time to dicker, time to show the value of certain Jewish support to the governments. Germany gladly pledged the land of Palestine to the Jews, but the Jews had already seen what Wilhelm II had done in that ancient country when he enthroned himself on the Mount of Olives. Evidently the Allies won in the contest of making promises and submissions to Jewry, for on November 2, 1917, when General Allenby was pushing up through Palestine with his British Army, Arthur James Balfour, the British Foreign Secretary, issued the famous declaration approving Palestine as a national home for the Jewish people.
"The wording of it came from the British Foreign Office, but the text had been revised in the Zionist offices in America as well as in England. The British Declaration was made in the form in which the Zionists desired it, and the last clauses were added in order to appease a certain section of timid anti-Zionist opinion." ("Guide to Zionism," pp. 85-86.)
Now read the Declaration and note the italicized clauses just referred to:
"His Majesty's Government view with favor the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people and will use their best endeavors to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing wil1 be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country."
Zionism is of particular interest, not merely because of the quarrels which have arisen among the leaders over money - it is the war of "interest" against "capital" - but also because of the light it throws on the two great armies of Jews in the world, the way in which they use their power where they can, and the trouble that always embroils the nations which become Jewish tools.
People sometimes ask why Jewry. which is capitalistic, should favor Bolshevism, which is the announced enemy of capital.
It is an interesting question. Why should a New York Jewish financier, an officer of the government of the United States, help finance a "Red" publication which even our tolerant government cannot stomach? In addition to the fact that it is only "Gentile capital" that is attacked, the answer is that the Jew who has fallen for the worship of the Golden Calf is anxious to keep in the good graces of the Jew of the East - the Mongolian Jews - who are rampaging against orderly systems of society. It quite useful when there is a revolution in Paris to have 600 houses which you may own spared by the incendiary mobs - as were Rothschild's houses. Zionism has been one of the subjects upon which Western and Eastern Jews can unite.
Indeed, it was the Eastern Jew that compelled the Western Jew to take a favorable stand on the matter. The Jews who are receiving the freedom of our cities today in their various aspects as "German" and "British" scientists are Eastern Jews. They have come to a contest with the Jews of America on the question of Money. The Jews of America have smothered some very ugly charges. The Jews of the East, more recently of Germany or England, are not likely to be browbeaten by the money-bags of Jewish New York, for the Eastern type of Jew knows of a situation in which money is the most useless thing in the world - and that is why he is feared and favored by Western Jewry of the Golden Calf.
Cunning Jewish defenders occasionally capitalize the "split" in Jewry. There is no such thing. The real split in Jewry will come if and when Jews of vision begin to support the attempts which have been made to liberate the Jews from their leaders. This internal squabble means nothing but the squabble of leaders; but when the Jews themselves divide, one side for twentieth century light and the destruction of the power of selfish leaders, then we may begin to hope. When the Jew recognizes the honesty of his critics and the righteousness of what they charge, when the Jew advances in civilization then there may be a "split," but not before. The division in Jewry as evidenced by the contempt of the revolutionary party for the financial party, and as even more strongly evidenced by the fear of the revolutionary party by the financial party, was brought about by the earlier insincerity of the Western Jew's Zionism. The Western Jew said that the United States is the Promised Land, profits and interest are the "milk and honey" and New York is Jerusalem; the Eastern Jew had another view.
A knowledge of Political Zionism is essential also as an authoritative illustration of what the Jew does when he is in power. Heretofore there has been Russia to illustrate this, but now there is Palestine. With every fact against them, with every traveler and observer giving them the lie direct, there are still Jewish spokesmen and poor befuddled "Gentile fronts," as well as corrupt Gentile politicians and writers, who insist that Communism is not Jewish and that Russia is not governed by Jews. It is just this constant denial of facts, this failure to use their opportunity to be honest, that is going to be the judgment of Jewish leaders. Communism all over the world, not in Russia only, is Jewish.
More to the present point is Palestine, where the unity of revolutionary and financial Jewry is never more clearly established. It is impossible for the most irresponsible Jewish spokesman to deny that Palestine is Jewish.* The government is Jewish, the plan of procedure is Jewish, the methods are Jewish. Palestine will do to illustrate the genius of the Jew when he comes to power.
EDITOR'S NOTE: *The British Administration in Palestine is referred to at the time the original was written.
Professor Albert T. Clay, in the "Atlantic Monthly" (will anyone declare that this long-established and thoroughly respectable Boston publication is "anti-Semitic"?) warns us that the information about Palestine which we receive in America comes to us through the Jewish Telegraph Service (which is the Associated Press of worldwide Jewry) and the Zionist propaganda. "The latter," he says, "with its harrowing stories of pogroms in Europe, and its misrepresentations of the situation in the Near East, has been able to awaken not a little sympathy for the Zionist propaganda."
This propaganda of pogroms - "thousands upon thousands of Jews killed" - amounts to nothing except as it illustrates the gullibility of the Press. No one believes this propaganda and governments regularly disprove it. But the fact that it continues indicates that something besides the facts is necessary to keep the scheme going. In Jerusalem as this is being written (1921: Ed.) martial law is proclaimed. There has been a struggle between the native inhabitants, whom the Balfour Declaration sought to protect, and the new-come Jews. The Jews were well armed and the natives fought with whatever weapons they could find on the spot; the conclusion of all impartial observers being that the Jews prepared for and sought the fight with unprepared Arabs.
The mark of disorder perpetrated by the Jews is all over the place, the "persecuted" turned persecutor, and lest this should be charged to the general wildness of the people in Palestine let it be said that the Jewish rioters (most of whom are thugs from Eastern Europe) are only expressing in deeds what the "cultivated" American and English Jews have expressed in words - namely, that the lawful inhabitants of the land ought to be driven out, in spite of governmental promises to the contrary. One of the first rioters during that bloody Easter after World War I, Jabotinsky, whom the British authorities sentenced to 15 years in prison, was released immediately on the arrival of the Jew Sir Herbert Samuel. Jabotinsky was one of the original Russian Bolsheviks come down to practice the gentle arts of that tribe in Palestine. The Government of Palestine since the British occupation was, and is, Jewish. Sir Herbert Samuel was the British High Commissioner, representing the power of the British Government which took up the Mandate for Palestine. This founded the Jewish power which has been maintained and increased to its present virulent state. The head of the judicial department was also a Jew. Christian or Moslem judges who did not give the Jew a shade the better of the proceedings were ousted - a condition familiar in New York. Chaim Weizmann became head of the Department of Works, and later emerged as the successor to Levin as the leader of Zionism. The Jewish government of the "new Palestine" was very much like that of Bolshevik Russia - mostly foreign. Practically every big American city was represented in the first Bolshevik government of Russia. There is another full-fledged government waiting in America for service whenever necessary.
The methods adopted to get the land of Palestine away from the Arabs in the early days of the Zionist invasion were such as will fill the world with indignation once the world is permitted to know what was done. That it was done with the knowledge and approval of Zionist Commissioner Samuel is indicated by the fact that he suspended the activities of a British officer who endeavored to stop the abuse. It was the old game of lending money at exorbitant rate of interest to Arabs hard pressed by the ravages of war and crop failure, and then seizing their land when they could not pay. The bank that did this was the Anglo-Palestine Bank, a Zionist concern. This British officer, to save the people and the land, made arrangements with a British bank to lend them money at 6.5% with five years to pay. If payment failed, the land was to go to the government for redistribution, not to the Zionist bank. This was the humane plan which the Zionist High Commissioner forbade, whereupon the British officer resigned. The well-considered action of Jewry in power.
Then follows what is described by every impartial observer as an arrogant attempt to expropriate everything in sight. The only schools that had been established in Jerusalem had been built and manned by the Gentiles, although the tiny group of Jews permanently resident in Jerusalem have been the pensioners of world-wide Jewry for centuries. As long ago as 1842 Dr. Murray M'Cheyne noted that the Jerusalem Jews cared nothing for the schools, but Christians with a warm regard for the Holy City set about to improve the miserable condition of the Jewish inhabitants. Thus it came that at the time of the Zionist invasion a considerable number of Jewish children were in attendance at the schools. The new-come Zionist leaders demanded that the best of the schools be given up to them. Of course, this was refused. "The Council of Jerusalem Jews" then caused it to be published in the Hebrew daily that parents who did not withdraw their children from the schools would be punished. Now look at the typical punishments threatened:
If any parent refused whose name was on the list of the American Relief Fund, the relief would be withdrawn.
Doctors would be forbidden to visit families that had children attending the enlightened schools.
Their names would be sent to the black-list at the places where circumcision was performed, so that new-born descendants of the recalcitrants might be refused the rites of Moses.
They would be denied all share in Zionist benefits or funds.
If they were in business they would be boycotted.
If they were workmen, they could get no work.
"Anyone who refused, let him know that it was forbidden for him to be called by the name of Jew. They will be fought by all lawful means. Their names will be put upon a monument of shame and their deeds made to reproach them to the last generation. If they are supported, their support will cease. If they are rabbis, they will be removed from office. They shall be put under the ban and persecuted, and all the world will know that in this justice there has been no mercy."
It is the spirit of Jewish Bolshevism all over again. It is tyranny, not the tyranny of strength, but of meanness and darkness. It is the spirit which produced the Irgun terrorism, the Jewish hatred, malice and vengeance which lurks for all critics of Jewry and opponents of Zionist ambitions.
This spirit which obtained at the beginning of a movement, which the innocent Christian world has been taught by propaganda to regard as a profoundly religious and respectable exodus, explains all that has happened in the years since the Zionists took over Palestine. It staggers the imagination to forecast what will be done in a period of full and unquestioned rule.
It is very clear that Jewish nationalism will develop along the line of enmity to the rest of the world.
There are three elements of danger in the situation: the overwhelming predominant Bolshevist element that is being poured into Palestine; the intense, egotistic and challenging nationalism that Zionists exhibit even before they get a potato patch - the taste for world politics and world power; and the racial confusion which now exists in Palestine.
These combined are dynamite. The first is more vital than many realize. The few Jews who have gone to Palestine at great sacrifice and for pious reasons are complaining that instead of the Psalms of David the people are singing songs of the Red Revolution, and instead of meeting for instruction and prayer there are riotous gatherings extolling Russian leaders as Messiahs and the Soviet as the Kingdom of Heaven.
Palestine has been called the center of the earth. The power that controls Palestine controls the world. Although exercising no sovereignty over the land itself, Great Britain's control of adjacent waters and of Egypt and Persia and India forms the key of her power.*
EDITOR'S NOTE: *The "key" has since been given away. It is significant that the "giving away" of British power in recent years should have the approval of both the Conservative, self-confessed Zionist, Churchill, and the British Labor Party. British history since World War I clearly proves the dominance of Jewish power in that country.
The white race has thus far been the Chosen People to whom dominion of the earth has been given. Palestine is the key to world military strategy and trade. In question 12 of the Questions and Answers published by the department Education, Zionist Organization of America, this occurs:
12. What are the commercial possibilities of Palestine? The location of Palestine between three continents favours foreign trade.
All this lends itself to dreams of future glory, as do the unlimited mineral and oil resources of Palestine estimated by scientists in astronomical figures.
Many Christian friends of the Jew have pleased themselves by conceiving a universal Hague at Jerusalem and a new social order going out to bless the nations from Zion. It is the idea conveyed by men like A. A. Berle in books like "The World Significance of a Jewish State."
Americans do not understand the delicate racial situation in Palestine. Zionist propaganda has always been accepted on the assumption that Palestine is the Jews' land and that they only need help to go back. It is an historical and political fact that Palestine has not been the Jew's land for more than 2,000 years - and then for only a brief while. At the close of the 1914-1918 war there were in Palestine over 600,000 Arabs and only 50,000 Jews. Neither numerically nor industrially have the Jews held the land. Yet as the result of a "war bargain" it is handed over to them as regardless of the native inhabitants as if Belgium had been handed over to Mexico. Many of the natives are Semites, like the Jews, but they do not want the Jews among them. The Balfour Declaration, as well as the terms of the Mandate, recognized the rights of the native races. Everyone who knows about the people who have been native to Palestine for thousands of years recognizes their right, everybody except the Jews.
It is now that the last clauses, added as the Zionist historian declares, "in order to appease a certain section of timid anti-Zionist opinion?' begin to get a meaning for the reader.
Was the purpose only to quiet disturbing questions until all the arrangements were made? Evidently. It was then a dishonest appeasement! Such may have been the Zionists' intention, but no one expects perjury on the part of the responsible nations.
General Allenby promised the native Arabs of Palestine that their rights would be respected. So did the Balfour Declaration. So did the San Remo Conference. So also did President Wilson in the twelfth of his Fourteen Points.
But Judah says, "Let them get out!" "The last clauses were added in order to appease a certain section of timid anti-Zionist opinion." "Let them give up their land to us, we want it!" The delightful Jewishness of it! The watchmen on the towers of the world are alarmed at what is brewing in Judah's cauldron.
