Says Tutankhamen Figured Jews Would Turn Red

Download PDF for this date

Tutankhamen, the Pharaoh whose tomb is now being explored, was the first “crowned anti-Semite” and was possesed of a remarkable vision, according to the “Novoye Wremja”, a Russian language paper published in Belgrade.

Tutankhamen, this paper says, realized that if the Jews were permitted to stay in Egypt, they would turn the heads of the Egyptian proletariat to Bolshevism. Tutankhamen accordingly was about to expel them when they went into exile of their own accord, creating out of the incident the fantastic story of the Exodous. The “Novoye Wremja” does not state where it obtained this extra-ordinary bit of data.
