Jews share blame for suffering: Churchill

Jews share blame for suffering: Churchill are similar to Samuel Roth, Edmonson, Karl Marx and many Jewish writers and thinkers below!

March 12, 2007

LONDON: Winston Churchill suggested Jews were "partly responsible for the antagonism from which they suffer", says a document made public for the first time yesterday.

A historian at Cambridge University has uncovered an article written by Churchill in 1937, three years before he became the British prime minister.

The article, "How The Jews Can Combat Persecution", never saw the light of day after Churchill's private office stepped in to say publication in Britain's Sunday Dispatch would be "inadvisable".

The document lay buried in the university's Churchill archive for more than 60 years, until a historian, Richard Toye, unearthed it while researching a new biography of Churchill.

The article begins with reference to persecution of Jews over the centuries and refers to a new wave of anti-Semitism across Europe and the US.

"It would be easy to ascribe it to the wickedness of the persecutors, but that does not fit all the facts," it reads.

"It exists even in lands, like Great Britain and the United States, where Jew and Gentile are equal in the eyes of the law, and where large numbers of Jews have found, not only asylum, but opportunity.

"These facts must be faced in any analysis of anti-Semitism. They should be pondered especially by the Jews themselves.

"For it may be that, unwittingly, they are inviting persecution - that they have been partly responsible for the antagonism from which they suffer."

The article goes on: "The central fact which dominates the relations of Jew and non-Jew is that the Jew is 'different'. He looks different. He thinks differently. He has a different tradition and background. He refuses to be absorbed."

Elsewhere, the article is sympathetic towards the Jewish people and it is clear Churchill disapproves of their persecution.

He writes: "In fact, the Jew is, as a rule, a good citizen. He is sober, industrious, law-abiding. He identifies himself - up to a point - with the country in which he lives. He is ready, if need be, to fight and to die for it."

"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 and good fortune of the rest of the world." - Samuel Roth, Jews Must Live, page 18.

"We Jews are going to bring war on Germany." - David Brown, President of American Hebrew, in 1934, quoted in Edmonson's I Testify, page 188.

"The Second World War is being fought for the defense of the fundamentals of Judaism." - The Chicago Jewish Sentinel, October 8, 1942.

"The governments of the peoples included in this world republic, with the aid of the victorious proletariat, all will fall without difficulty into Jewish hands. Private property will then be strangled by the Jewish directors, who will administer the state patrimony everywhere. Thus the promise of the Talmud will be fulfilled, that is, the promise that the Jews, at the arrival of the Messiah, will possess the key to the wealth of all the peoples of the earth." - Baruch Levy, in a letter to Karl Marx, published in the Rothschild controlled La Revue de Paris, June 1, 1928.
