Jews and Anti-Semitism
The law of dislike for the unlike will always prevail.
And whereas the unlike is normally situated at a safe distance,
the Jews bring the unlike into the heart of every milieu,
and must there defend a frontier line as large as the world.
The Koran pointed to a contemptible characteristic of the Jews;
their craven desire to live,
no matter at what price and regardless of quality,
honor and dignity.

For this holiday, the Jewish people must
obtain human blood so that their clerics can prepare the holiday pastries.
In other words, the practice cannot be carried out as required if human
blood is not spilled!!
The Jews' spilling human blood to prepare
pastry for their holidays is a well-established fact, historically and
legally, all throughout history. This was one of the main reasons for the
persecution and exile that were their lot in Europe and Asia at various
How the Jews Drain the Blood From Their Young
I would like to tell you how human blood
is spilled so it can be used for their holiday pastries. The blood is
spilled in a special way. How is it done? For this holiday, the victim
must be a mature adolescent who is, of course, a non-Jew -- that is, a
Christian or a Muslim. His blood is taken and dried into granules. The
cleric blends these granules into the pastry dough; they can also be saved
for the next holiday. In contrast, for the Passover slaughtering, about
which I intend to write one of these days, the blood of Christian and
Muslim children under the age of 10 must be used, and the cleric can mix
the blood [into the dough] before or after dehydration.

dreadful torment --
torment that affords the Jewish vampires great delight

Diary of Harry S Truman, July 21 1947.
criticizing the views of Henry Morgenthau, the Secretary of the Treasury,
who was Jewish, and who had phoned to discuss the fate of Jewish refugees.
Although Truman supported recognition of Israel in 1948, he was known to use
anti-Semitic language. In a letter written years before he entered the White
House, Truman referred to New York City as "kike town."
There are three basic types of anti-Semites. First,
there are anti-Semites whose hatred of Jews translates into action against
Jews. In this category go such notables as Adolf Hitler, Josef Stalin, Yasser
Arafat and Osama Bin Laden. Then, there are anti-Semites who don't like Jews but
also refuse to let that dislike alter their decisions on what is moral and
what is not.
Truman was clearly the second kind of anti-Semite. As
David McCullough notes in
In private, Truman was a man who still, out of
old habits of the mouth, could use a word like 'kike,' or, in a letter to
his wife, dismiss Miami as nothing but 'hotels, filling stations, Hebrews,
Yet it was Truman who overruled his State Department
and recognized the legitimacy of the State of Israel. It was Truman who, in
April 1943, traveled to Chicago to deliver a speech before a huge rally to
urge aid for besieged Jews in Europe and implicitly criticized President
Roosevelt for not doing enough. It was Truman who lobbied for change in the
Displaced Persons Act to end discrimination against Jews as well as Catholics.
There is also a third type of anti-Semite: the
practical anti-Semite. This is the person who does not hate Jews
stereotypically but always acts against the interests of Jews. Perhaps this is
the most dangerous anti-Semite of all because while an all-around anti-Semite
can be labeled as merely anti-Jew, the practically anti-Jew person cannot be
labeled as such.
Truman's predecessor, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, was
such a man. Though FDR was careful never to belie any personal anti-Semitism,
his immigration policy before and during World War II played a crucial part in
allowing the Holocaust to reach its unimaginable magnitude. To the larger
Jewish community, the idea that FDR's policies were anti-Semitic is anathema.
Harry Truman, the anti-Semite?
, July 16, 2003
Now Truman's statements are being used by some Arabs
to justify their hostility to Israel. According to an intellectual, writing in
the London-based Al-Hayat, the recent rise of anti-Semitism, especially
in Europe, is very much attributed to Israeli practices against the
Palestinians, practices that allegedly parallel those used by Nazis. He
Israel is a shame to the Jews everywhere.
Everyone who supports it is a partner in the crime, for it has been
transformed from a country for the survivors of the Nazism to a new Nazi
state that is practicing what Truman predicted over half of century ago."
This intellectual insists that anti-Semitism must be
denounced. Yet, he emphasizes that
A government comprised of war criminals in Israel
explains the rise of anti-Semitism in every country.
This line of reasoning speaks volumes of the
predicament of the Arab mindset and constitutes the mortal threat to
Arab-Jewish peaceful co-existence. Why? Because at the heart of
this reasoning is an implicit claim that Jews are evil and that their
integration as a distinct group into the region is dangerous and thus
Arabs generally think that Truman admired and
sympathized so much with the Jews that he was the first president to recognize
and thus legitimize the state of Israel. His diary statements, however, reveal
a very different opinion of the Jews. Arabs' reaction was that "we have
been telling you so about the Jews, just read Truman's statements."
Truman was not the first president to entertain
anti-Jewish ideas. Two other presidents come to mind: Thomas Jefferson and
Richard Nixon. But all three presidents did not allow their personal opinions
of Jews to affect their actions. Indeed, Truman recognized the state of
Israel. Nixon worked for peace in the Middle East and filled key positions in
his administration with Jews. Jefferson approved of the American Constitution
that guaranteed the protection and equal rights of mankind including Jews.

The steward tells me that most of the Jewish passengers are

are too many in places like New York already. A few Jews add strength and
character to a country, but too many create chaos. And we are getting too
many. This present immigration will have its reaction.

was held. One speaker, Val Phillips, claimed that "right now, Israeli soldiers
are rounding up every Palestinian male in Jenin, and dividing them into two
groups. One group to be arrested, and the other to be killed." Speakers compared
Zionism to Nazism and a member of the Colorado Campaign for Mideast Peace

Therefore be on your guard
against the Jews, knowing that wherever they have their synagogues, nothing is
found but a den of devils in which sheer self-glory, conceit, lies, blasphemy,
and defaming of God and men are practiced most maliciously and veheming his
eyes on them.
Accordingly, it must and dare
not be considered a trifling matter but a most serious one to seek counsel
against this and to save our souls from the Jews, that is, from the devil and
from eternal death. My advice, as I said earlier, is:
First, that their synagogues be
burned down, and that all who are able toss sulphur and pitch; it would be
good if someone could also throw in some hellfire...
Second, that all their books--
their prayer books, their Talmudic writings, also the entire Bible-- be taken
from them, not leaving them one leaf, and that these be preserved for those
who may be converted...
Third, that they be forbidden on
pain of death to praise God, to give thanks, to pray, and to teach publicly
among us and in our country...
Fourth, that they be forbidden
to utter the name of God within our hearing. For we cannot with a good
conscience listen to this or tolerate it...

The operatic play
Family Quarrels was
first performed at Covent Garden in December 1802.
Prior to the first
performance, a song from the play about three Jewish whores circulated in an
inexpensive booklet of popular songs. A large number of Jews were grossly
offended and bought tickets to the opening performance in order to make their
dissatisfaction known. Trouble occurred, however, before the offensive song
was even heard. In the second act, one of the characters, on being offered
some goods by another character disguised as a Jewish peddler, replied,
"I never deal with your
people." The Jews in
the audience instantly raised a clamor and kept it up until the end of the act
so that it was impossible to hear a single sentence. They continued to protest
in a similar fashion during the remainder of this performance and several

Comment on this:
The Jews' behavior was widely
condemned by contemporary commentators who expressed outrage that such
"a barbarous howl"
could have been raised by
"a parcel of old cloathsmen and pedlars"
(The Monthly Mirror, 1802).

He appears exhausted at the physical effort of sustaining his note and is
hunched forward. By contrast, the gentile is singing

and the ease of his performance is encouraged by the encores of his English
supporters. The print is a graphic representation of some of the tensions
between Jew and gentile in a period when political emancipation was beginning to
enter the agenda.
