London (Jun. 17)
M. Francois Coty is a fervid patrict, an acutely intelligent man, and the owner of a powerful newspaper, the “National Graphic” here writes in its current issue, under the heading of “Our Views”. Like many other acutely intelligent men, as well as not a few stupid ones, he has set about trying to find what is wrong with the world. Half the civilised world, he says, in effect, is in the dumps, and the other half soon will be in consequence of the machinations of German-American-Jew financiers.
Subsidised, it is claimed, by Jewish-American banks and firms of financiers, revolutionary Jews are establishing Jewish Political Minorities” in each nation in order to pave the way for terrorist methods. Russia was a victim. England and France are marked down as future victims.
The aim is not the establishment of Communism as such, but the “universal” dominion of the Jewish race through the Bolshevik enslavement of the nations”.
M. Coty in the role of the fat boy from “Pickwick” will not, we think, the “National Graphic” says, see the universal dominion of his opinions. But he is not merely set on making Europe’s flesh creep for the sake of either sensationalism or advertisement, or both.
His theory that a clique of fabulously rich German-American-Jews have for the past half-century been ceaselessly working to produce a world-upheaval with the double objective of monetary gain and racial empire will not be easily upset, nor can it be dismissed with an amused shrug of the shoulders as a pretty little piece of crankish prejudice.
The recent Commission of Inquiry to the American Congress reported of ficially, the “National Graphic” claims, that “the powerful grip of these gentlemen (i.e. the German-Jewish bankers) is placed upon the lever which controls all credit, and whose wheels turn or stop at their signal”.
The Presidents of the United States are actually, it is said, in a state of vassalage to them, which may account for Mr. Hoover’s diplomatic intervention in favour of Germany and the anti-French attitude of Mr. Gibson, the American representative at the Disarmament Conference.
In England, according to M. Coty, the hand of Zionism militant and ever rampant, can be directly traced in the “mutiny” in the Home Fleet (much more, by the way, was made of this episode on the Continent than many of us realise) the fall of the pound, and the Irish threat of secession.
American finance, controlled by “the gang”, refused to allow the United States Government to see the pound maintained. Mr. de Valera is held to be the mere tool of that strange individual, Robert Briscoe, an Irish Jew, who is the agent of the aforesaid German-American banking firms.
Similarly, the “nationalist” party in China is bolstered up by the equally mysterious Maurice Cohen, to whom the “Daily Hail” recently devoted an article as “the general and financier who is the secret dictator of China”.
The indictment, the “National Graphic” concludes, is too severe to be disregarded. It is not, with due acknowledgments to M. Coty a sweet-smelling yarn.
