Download PDF for this date

Kol Nidre is branded as a “most immoral prayer” in the January issue of the Kourier, published here monthly by the national order of the Knights of the Klux Klan, Inc.

Quoting this most sacred ritual in what the magazine terms “its ugly nakedness”, the Kourier goes on to say that “A study of this prayer, through which runs the Jews’ cynical indifference to Gentile standards, will convince the most ardent advocate of the Jewish race that this trait of the race must be changed before the Gentile can place confidence in the words of a race absolved in advance from the consequences of broken oaths and broken obligations.”

The Kourier says in its sevenpage article that “It is a well known fact that the Jews control Soviet Russia. It is an equally well known fact that the Jews had their hands around the throat of Germany, working in close co-operation with the Jews in Red Russia and the Jews in America and in all the other nations of the world. Over 80 percent of the rulers of Red Russia are Jews and it is this race that is responsible for the rising tide of anarchy around the world.
