Fight Against Jews and Catholics’ is Their Slogan (Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

A bloc of anti-Semitic parties, having as its slogan: “Fight against Judaism and Catholicism,” was formed today.

The bloc will consist of the various groups of the Voelkische party, including the Deutschnazionale-voelkische, the Hitlerites, the Deutschsoziale and the Banern-voeikische. The campaign has already been initiated by the “Deutsches Tageblatt” and its sister organs, the slogan being, “To protect the German people against International Jewry and Catholicsm.”

Ludendorff’s weekly published an appeal today by Mathilda Ludendorff, the German war lord’s wife. In this appeal, Madam Ludendorff charges the Christian church with failure to carry out Luther’s demand to expel from Germany the “Satan Jews” and to destroy the synagogues. “Five hundred full fledged Jews are in control of the church chancelleries in Germany and are subject to the secret orders of the chief rabbi.” Madam Ludendorff asserts. She further urges the followers of the Voelkische party who go to church to prevent the reading of the Old Testament.
