Psst! Do You Know Baruch and Gandhi Are Soul-mates in Jewish Conspiracy?

It has long been the custom of the Nazis to dub all persons whom, for one reason or another, they dislike, “Jews”. But this habit has reached its reduction to the absurd in this week’s “Volkwart”, a Berlin weekly, which calmly asserts that Herriot, Poincare, Gandhi, Tardieu, Mosley, Lloyd George, de Valera and Colonel House are all Jews. Not content with so ridiculous a statement, however, the “Volkwart” goes on to give the “real” names of these “Jews”; Poincare’s name is Viereggl, and he is a Galician Jew. Tardieu’s name is Lang-Lony; the real name of Sir Oswald Mosley, the leader of the British Fascists, is Moses, and Colonel House, of course, is nothing but an alias for—Mandelhouse.

The “Volkwart” continues, in this spirit, to publish sensational “exposures”. It gives a complete explanation of recent financial events in the United States. What actually happened was this: the Jew Baruch “the secret President of the U.S.A.” required money for a world-wide Jewish conspiracy against Germany. And so he ordered the “freemason” Roosevelt to call in all gold coin and bullion in the hands of the citizens and force them to accept paper dollars in exchange. Once this had been done, the dollar was deliberately inflated. The gold, however, was paid into the Federal Reserve Bank, “a private bank under Jewish control.” “In this way the whole fortune of the American nation was handed over to a group of Jewish bankers” who immediately handed it over to Mr. Baruch, for the purposes of the Jewish Conspiracy!


Next the “Volkwart” publishes some very interesting facts about the Zionist Organization, which is apparently merely a sub-division of the “Bnei Moshe”. Zionism, however, is merely a mask for their real aim, which is Jewish World Domination. It is in furtherance of this aim, according to the “Volkwart”, that there has recently been a secret meeting in Royat, a small spa near Paris. Here met the leaders of the conspiracy, the Jews Trotzky, Litvinoff, Baruch and Suritz. And it is in connection with this, too, that the two Jews, Herriot and Alphand, have recently gone to Moscow.

As proof positive of this “Jewish Conspiracy”, the “Volkwart” quotes a letter allegedly written by the “Jew Rathenau” (the murdered German Minister of Finance) to a certain Lieutenant Breisig, in which Rathenau told the latter that whether he liked it or not, he could not avoid “coming to Sinai” sooner or later. “If”, Rathenau is alleged to have written “you do not come to me, you will come to Marx. If not to Marx, to Spinoza. If not Spinoza, then to Christ.”


The “Volkwart” is equally opposed to the Jesuits and to the Freemasons, and the very few foreign leaders who, according to it, are not Jews, are in almost all cases either in one or the other of these classifications. And of course the three are in league with each other and their aim is, and always has been, the destruction of Germany. At the conference of Versailles, for example, no less than 90% of all the delegates (according to the “Volkwart”) were either Jews, Jesuits or Freemasons.

For the Jewish problem, however, the “Volkwart” has a very simple solution—the island of Madagascar. It rejects Palestine on the ground that it is too near to Europe, but is willing that they should have Madagascar all to themselves. There they are to have a homeland of their own, “in which they may steal and swindle to their heart’s content.” The only condition attached to this magnanimous gift should be that all the Jews in the world should have to go there. The article ends with the promise of further sensational disclosures.

We have attempted to give a fair idea of the text of this article. It is difficult to imagine that even the most violent hotheads of the Nazi movement should really believe such rubbish. It is in truth such rubbish that it is extremely difficult to treat it seriously. Its very absurdity would, indeed, make it harmless, were it not for the fact that the paper at the same time publishes a complete list of the German Pro-Palestine Committee, and asks its readers “to send it all the derails they can discover about these personages.”
