Download PDF for this date

The good citizens of Jamaica, Long Island, accustomed to tune in on radio station WARD every Saturday night, and listen among other things to the chorus of the Pride of Judea Orphan Asylum, were rudely awakenen last Saturday everning when the Rev. Homer A. Tomlinson suddenly began a violent attack on all Jews as having part in a diabolical conspiracy to ruin the Christain world, including the United States. Tomlinson is pastor of the Jamaica Tabernacle, House of God, at 168th Street in Jamaica, and has broadcast over the station on many occasions. He was supposed to be delivering a set speech over WARD when he suddenly began his fulminations against the Jews. The startled director of the station promptly cut him off the air and the anti-Semitic pastor continued for ten more minutes to describe the deviltries of the Jews until he became aware of his plight.


Yesterday afternon at the Jamaica Tabernacle, before an audience of some 200 people, Tomlinson resumed his attacks on the Jews, which he bases entirely on the Old Testament.
