Jewishness

On Jan. 13, 1489, Rabbi Chemor of Arles (Provence, France), wrote to the Grand Sandhedrin, which had its seat at Constantinople, for advice, as the people of Arles were threatening the synagogues. What should the Jews do? The answer was as follows:

Dear beloved brethren in Moses. We have received your letter in which you tell us of the anxieties and misfortunes which you are enduring. We are pierced by as great pain to hear it as yourselves. The advice of the Grand Satraps and Rabbis is the following:

1. As for what you say that the King of France obliges you to become Christians; do it, since you cannot do otherwise, but let the law of Moses be kept in your hearts.

2. As for what you say about the command to despoil you of your goods: make your sons merchants, that little by little they may despoil the Christians of theirs. (*1)

3. As for what you say about their making attempts on your lives: make your sons doctors and apothecaries, that they may take away Christian lives. (*2)

4. As for what you say of their destroying your synagogues: make your sons canons and clerics in order that they may destroy their churches. (*3)

5. As for the many other vexations you complain of: arrange that your sons become advocates and lawyers, and see that they always mix themselves up with the affairs of State, in order that by putting Christians under your yoke you may dominate the world and be avenged on them. (4*)

6. Do not swerve from this order that we give you, because you will find by experience that, humiliated as you are, you will reach the actuality of power. — Constantinople Elders of Jewry, signed V.S.S.V.F.F. Prince of the Jews, 21st Caslu (November), 1489. This letter was reprinted in Revue des estudes Juives, Paris, France, 1889. The newspaper, Revue des estudes Juives, was financed by James de Rothschild (Jakob Rothschild), a Jew, who managed the Paris branch of his father’s European banking empire.

And indeed…

(*1) As for what you say about the command to despoil you of your goods: ‘make your sons merchants, that little by little they may despoil the Christians of theirs:

A gentile enters business every minute, with two Jews waiting to take him out of it. Jews Must Live, Samuel Roth

We Jews glory in the fact that the stupid goy have never realized that we are the parasites consuming an increasing portion of production while the producers are continually receiving less and less. — Harold Wallace Rosenthal, The Harold Wallace Rosenthal Interview, 1976, by Charles A. Weisman, published June 1992

(*2) As for what you say about their making attempts on your lives: make your sons doctors and apothecaries, that they may take away Christian lives:

Use the courts, use the judges, use the constitution of the country, use its medical societies and its laws to further our ends. — Address of the Jew Laventria Beria, The Communist Textbook on Psychopolitics, p. 8

More than 12,000 doctors are graduated from medical schools in the United States every year and almost 10,000 of them are Jews. — Harold Wallace Rosenthal, The Harold Wallace Rosenthal Interview, 1976, by Charles A. Weisman, published June 1992

You have become addicted to our medicine through which we have become your absolute masters. — Harold Wallace Rosenthal, The Harold Wallace Rosenthal Interview, 1976, by Charles A. Weisman, published June 1992

(*3) As for what you say of their destroying your synagogues: make your sons canons and clerics in order that they may destroy their churches:

We have induced some of our children to join the Christian Body, with the explicit intimation that they should work in a still more efficient way for the disintegration of the Christian Church, by creating scandals within her. We have thus followed the advice of our Prince of the Jews, who so wisely said: ‘Let some of your children become cannons, so that they may destroy the Church.’

Unfortunately, not all among the ‘convert’ Jews have proved faithful to their mission. Many of them have even betrayed us! But, on the other hand, others have kept their promise and honored their word. Thus the counsel of our Elders has proved successful. — From a series of speeches at the B’nai B’rith Convention in Paris, published shortly afterwards in the London Catholic Gazette, February, 1936

Judaism, which was destroyed politically (as a result of the destruction of the Temple in 70 A.D.), went forth into the great world. It adapted its possessions to its wanderings. I once compared it to an army going to war, a ‘movable state.’

[…] The argument is that Judaism, by penetrating among the Gentiles (in Christians guise or otherwise), has gradually undermined the remnants of paganism. Such penetration has not been without deliberate Jewish conniving in the shape of assistance bestowed in a thousand ways, devices and disguises. It has been affected in great measure by crypto-Jews, who have permeated Christianity and spoken through the mouth of Christianity. — N.H. Bialik, in an address delivered at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, May 11, 1933, which appeared in Lines of Communication, Palestine, July, 1933

Many of our rabbis now hold professorships in supposed Christian theological seminaries. We are amazed by the Christians’ stupidity in receiving our teachings and propagating them as their own. — Harold Wallace Rosenthal, The Harold Wallace Rosenthal Interview, 1976, by Charles A. Weisman, published June 1992

By these devices of their Jewish blood; and owing to an instance for ‘requital,’ they have gradually induced Christianity to accept what was left in it of pagan elements as their own; and it is they who, in principle (even though they are called by great Gentile names), of Democracy, of Socialism, and of Communism.

I am content to ask the Jews if, in the countries where we are numerous, it is true that the position of advocates, doctors, engineers, professors, and employees of all kinds, belonging to our race, is becoming more and more intolerable. — Theodor Herzl, Founder of Zionism in 1897, Isaac Blumehen, Le Droit de la Race Supérieure

Use the courts, use the judges, use the constitution of the country, use its medical societies and its laws to further our ends. — Address of the Jew Laventria Beria, The Communist Textbook on Psychopolitics, p. 8

You make much noise and fury about the undue Jewish influence in your theaters and movie palaces. Very good; granted your complaint is well-founded. But what is that compared to our staggering influence in your churches, your schools, your laws and your governments, and the very thoughts you think every day? — A Real Case Against The Jews, by Marcus Eli Ravage, Part I, ’The First to See the Possibilities of War by Propaganda’, The Century Magazine, Vol. 115, January, 1928, No. 3

All this achievement […] has come about chiefly through unknown anonymous Jews, Jews in secret, either crypto-Jews* who mingled among the Gentiles and nurtured great thinkers from among them; or, through the influence of Jews, who, in the great crises of liberty and freedom, have stood behind the scenes; or through Jewish teachers and scholars from the time of the Middle Ages.

[…] The newspapers, under Jewish control, obviously served as an auxiliary in all movements in favor of freedom. Not in vain have Jews been drawn toward journalism. In their hands it became a weapon highly fitted to meet their needs. […] The Gentiles have at last realized this secret, that Judaism has gradually penetrated them like a drug. — N.H. Bialik, in an address delivered at the Hebrew University, Jerusalem, May 11, 1933, which appeared in Lines of Communication, Palestine, July, 1933

*Crypto-Jews: Persons who, while outwardly professing another religion (generally adopted by themselves or their ancestors under compulsion), continue to adhere secretly to Judaism. Such were the Marranos of Spain and Portugal, the Chuetas of Majorca, the Jedid-al-Islam in Persia, the Neofiti of S. Italy, and (with somewhat different antecedents) the Donmeh of Salonica. Definition as provided by The New Standard Jewish Encyclopedia.

We are hostile to strangers, guests in all countries, and at the same time we find ourselves at home in all countries when we are masters there. — Isaac Blumchen, Le Droit de la Race Supérieure

In everything, we are destroyers–even in the instruments of destruction to which we turn for relief […] We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers forever. Nothing that you will do will meet our needs and demands. We will forever destroy because we want a world of our own. — Maurice Samuel, You Gentiles, p. 152, 155, and 147

Jews will never be assimilated and will never adopt the customs or morals of strangers. The Jew will remain a Jew under all circumstances. — Doctor Leopold Kahn speaking about Zionism in a Jewish school at Pozrony, Bratislava, in 1901. World Conquerors, p. 21

For fifty years I have been a resolute partisan of assimilation of the Jews, and have believed in it. Today I confess my error.

The American melting-pot will never produce the fusion of one Jew.

Fifty years ago we were near to assimilating ourselves to the Americans. But since then two millions of our brother (or three) have arrived from the East, keeping their ancient traditions, bringing with them their old ideal. This army has submerged us. It is the hand of God.

The Jew must differentiate himself from his neighbor; he must know it; he must be conscious of it; he must be proud of it. — M. Schindler, an American Rabbi, The Jewish Chronicle, April 28, 1911

The English [or French or American, etc.] patriotism of the Jew is only a fancy-dress which he puts on to please the people of the country. — Jewish World, December 8, 1911

The part which Jews all over the world play in white slavery is one of the foulest blots on our people. — Jewish World, March 18, 1914

Let us recognize that we Jews are a distinct nationality of which every Jew, whatever his country, his station, or shade of belief, is necessarily a member. Organize, organize, until every Jew must stand up and be counted with us, or prove himself wittingly or unwittingly, of the few who are against their own people. — Justice Louis D. Brandeis, Supreme Court Justice, 1916‑1939 ,from and address delivered in June, 1915, before the Eastern Council of the Central Conference of Reform Rabbis

Assimilation is national suicide. — Louis D. Brandeis before Menorah Society, Columbia University

Maurice Samuel, a Zionist and popular Jewish American chauvinist in his time, put Jewish radicalism this way, in his confrontational book, You Gentiles, p. 155, Harcourt Brace,1924:

We Jews are the destroyers, will remain the destroyers forever, NOTHING that you will do will meet our needs and demands. We will forever destroy because we need a world of our own, a God-world, which is not your [Gentile] nature to build […] Those of us who fail to understand that truth will always be found in alliance with your rebellious factions until disillusionment comes, the wretched fate which scattered us through your midst has thrust this unwelcome role upon us. Maurice Samuel, a naturalized American citizen and secretary of the Zionist Organization of America, was no marginalized crank. Louis Kaplan notes that he ‘played a major role in re-Judaizing American Jewry from the 1920s until his death in 1972 […] Samuel reminded the Jewish-born universalist of his day (and ours) that love of humanity is too nebulous and superficial, even mawkish. […] Samuel, adds Emmanuel Goldsmith, ‘played a major role in the emergence of the American Jew’s sense of Jewish identity and in the American Jews’ definition of Jewishness.’ And Milton Hindus called Samuel ‘the most popular platform personality of American Jewry.’ (Kaplan, p. 453-465)

That peculiar facility for intrigue, stratagem, conspiracies, and that patient, almost uncanny waiting for the hour of never-failing revenge, are all characteristics of the chosen people. — Professor F.A. Ossendowski, The Nineteenth Century and After, London, January, 1926, p. 29

A Jew remains a Jew. Assimilation is impossible, because a Jew cannot change his national character. Whatever he does, he is a Jew and remains a Jew. — Ludwig Lewisohn, in his book ‘Israel’, 1926

The scroll of my life spread before me, and reading it in the glare of a new, savage light, it became a terrible testimony against my people [Jews]. The hostility of my parents […] my father’s fraudulent piety and his impatience with my mother which virtually killed her. The ease with which my Jewish friends sold me out to my detractors. The Jewish machinations which three times sent me to prison. The conscienceless lying of that clique of Jewish journalists who built up libel about my name. The thousand incidents, too minor to be even mentioned. I had never entrusted a Jew with a secret which he did not instantly sell cheap to my enemies. What was wrong with these people who accepted help from me? — Jewish author Samuel Roth, in his book ‘Jews Must Live’, 1934, p. 12

Have not Jews been admitted from time immemorial, freely, kindly, almost happily by every nation at whose gate they have knocked for admittance […] Have the Jews ever had to petition a country for admission – the first time?

Read for yourself the story of the progress of Jewry through Europe and America. Wherever they come they are welcomed, permitted to settle down, and join in the general business of the community. But one by one the industries of the country close to them because of unfair practices (by the Jews towards Christians) until it no longer being possible to hold in check the wrath of a betrayed people, there is violence and, inevitably, an ignominious ejection of the whole race from the land.

There is not a single instance when the Jews have not fully deserved the bitter fruit of the fury of their persecutors.

[…] Jewish history has been tragic to the Jews and no less tragic to the neighboring nations who have suffered them. Our major vice of old, as of today, is parasitism.

We are a people of vultures living on the labor (of the host nation) and the good nature of the rest of the world […] We come to the nations pretending to escape persecution, we the most deadly persecutors in all the wretched annals of man. — Samuel Roth, Jews Must Live, 1934, p. 18

You cannot be English Jews. We are a race, and only as a race can we perpetuate. Our mentality is of a Hebraic character, and differs from that of an Englishman. Enough subterfuges! Let us assert openly that we are International Jews. — Gerald Soman, Chairman of the World Jewry Fellowship, in its official manifesto, January 1, 1935

Hitler was right in one thing. He calls the Jewish people a race, and we are a race. Rabbi Stephen Wise, N.Y. Herald-Tribune, June 13, 1938. Alfred M. Lilienthal shows that Jews are a religion, contrary to Nazis who claim they are a race, and contrary to Zionists who claim they are a nation. — ALFRED M. LILIENTHAL, THE ZIONIST CONNECTION II: What Price Peace?, Veritas Publishing Company, Bullsbrook, Western Australia, 6084, 1983

A sermon by Rabbi Leon Spitz, quoted in the American Hebrew, March 1, 1946, illustrates the message by which the flames of Jewish hatred of non-Jews are rekindled every spring in the synagogues: […] Let Esau* whine and wail and protest to the civilized world, and let Jacob raise his hand to fight the good fight. The anti-Semite […] understands but one language, and he must be dealt with on his own level.

The Purim Jews stood up for their lives. American Jews, too, must come to grips with our contemporary anti-Semites.

We must fill our jails with anti-Semitic gangsters. We must fill our insane asylums with anti-Semitic lunatics. We must combat every alien Jew-hater. We must harass and prosecute our Jew-baiters to the extreme limits of the laws.

We must humble and shame our anti-Semitic hoodlums to such an extent that none will wish or dare to become their ‘fellow-travelers’.

*Esau is the code name used in Jewish publications to represent the gullible tolerant gentile; Jacob is the code name for the Jew.

I am not an American citizen of Jewish faith. I am a Jew. I have been an American for sixty-three years, but I have been a Jew for 4000 years. — Rabbi Stephen S. Wise

Which are you first, a Jew or an American? A Jew. — First Prime Minister of Israel, David Ben Gurion

A Jew is anyone who says he is. — First Prime Minister of Israel, David Ben Gurion

We are neither German, English or French. We are Jews and your Christian mentality is not ours. — Max Nordrow, a German Zionist Leader, in the Jewish World

The Jews cannot be a part of a real national unity. — Harry Waton, A Program for the Jews and Humanity, p. 201

When professor Blu Greenberg was asked what it meant to her to be a Jew, she replied: How can I answer that question? Everything in my life has always been connected to my Jewishness. For me, being Jewish is the same thing as being alive. They’re inseparable. — Roiphe, 1981, p. 25

I hardly exaggerate. Jewish life consists of two elements: Extracting money and protesting. — Nahum Goldmann, Ex‑President of the WJC World Jewish Congress in his book ‘The Jewish Paradox’, Athenäum, Frankfurt, 1988, p. 77

Jews are the only exception. They were destined to be unique. The concept of racial purity within the Jewish nation is not a myth.

The only facts to determine Jewishness should be purely an hereditary one regardless of Jewish observance.

A Jew is some‑one from Jewish stock.

No one can make a gentile Jewish.

We must retain our own exclusivity in order to survive and not be infiltrated by outsiders. — Jeffrey Kwintner, a Jew, writing in the Jewish Chronicle of December 29, 1989

The gullible clergy in one breath instruct their parishioners that we are a special, chosen people while in another breath proclaim all races are the same. Their inconsistency is never discovered.

So we Jews enjoy a special place in society while all other races are reduced to racial equality. It is for this reason that we authored the equality hoax, thereby reducing all to a lower level. — Harold Wallace Rosenthal, The Harold Wallace Rosenthal Interview, 1976, by Charles A. Weisman, published June 1992

Every attempt to assimilate among the nations has brought disaster. http://www.inner.org/LEADER/leader18.htm

Even after the nations recognize the source of light emanating from the Jewish people, there will still need to be a separation. http://www.inner.org/LEADER/leader18.htm

It doesn’t work because we are not the same as everyone else. We are essentially different. We have a life mission that is totally different. We have a soul that is totally different. We have totally different spiritual needs. We have totally different spiritual conflicts. — By Rabbi Eliezier Shmetov, the Chabad-Lubavitch emissary in Montevideo, Uruguay http://www.chabad.org/library/article_cdo/aid/52810/jewish/part-II-8-18.htm

It’s stupid — stupid. We are what we are! No matter what we join or adopt it doesn’t change what we ARE. I am a Jew and nothing can change me because I take up another religion. Such stupidity! — Harold Wallace Rosenthal, The Harold Wallace Rosenthal Interview, 1976, by Charles A. Weisman, published June 1992

Jewish identity is important to me because being Jewish is an integral part of myself: it’s my inheritance, my roots. Christian women sometimes have a hard time understanding this, because Christian identity is so much tied up with religious beliefs. It is possible to be an ex-Catholic or an ex-Baptist, but it is not possible to be an ex-Jew. — Alice Bloch, Jewish feminist, Bloch, p. 117

Jews were the founders of the Social Democatic Party in Austria. Always the leadership was Jewish — from Viktor Adler to Otto Bauer. Yes, Adler became a Protestant but Bauer once said: I am a Jew, but for me is the Judaism not a nation, not a religion, but a shared fate.’ And you cannot leave it because then you are a deserter. This why he remained a Jew. — Levy, A., 1993, p. 345

When I served in Hebron, for the first time in my life I felt something different about being a Jew. I don’t know why.

[…] So on the one hand you say to yourself fuck it, I’m supposed to guard the Jews that are here. On the other hand these Jews don’t behave with the same morality or values I was raised on. I reached a point in Hebron where I didn’t know who the enemy was anymore: whether it’s the Jew whose going crazy and I need to protect the Arabs from him, or whether I need to protect the Jew from the Arabs who are supposedly attacking.

[…] There are a few things that stayed with me. One, I think my definition of a Jew has changed a little.

[…] After I saw Jews that […] I don’t know if my definition of Jews even makes any difference with regard to the fact that […] they’re also human beings, but they don’t act like

[…] If they’re capable of writing on the Arab’s doors ‘Arabs Out’ or ‘Death to the Arabs,’ and drawing a Star of David, which to me is like a swastika when they draw it like that, then somehow the term Jew has changed a little for me with regard to who’s a Jew. — From IDF Soldiers Speak Out: www.shovrimshtika.org
