Talmud and Shulchan Aruch Have Been Pronounced by Law Court As Not Being Works of Religion Hitlerist

The news of the acquittal of Deputy Holz, the editor of the Hitlerist “Stuermer” by the Nuremberg law court on the charge of insulting the Talmud and the Shulchan Aruch, is printed to-day in big type by the chief Hitlerist organ, the “Voelkischer Beobachter” under the heading “The Race War of the National Socialist Party Recognised by the Law Court”.

The Talmud and the Shulchan Aruch have been pronounced by the court, it says, as not being religious works in the sense in which we understand religion, and the fact that Jews practise human sacrifice according to the command of the Zohar, which the Jews hold sacred, has been testified to on oath by Dr. Erich Bischoff.
