The Voelkischer Beobachter discerns a “Zionist profiteering policy” in the disclosures of the United States Senate committee investigating the traffic in munitions.

The findings of the investigators show that the whole world is supplied by Jewish merchants dealing with supplies and instruments of death, according to the Hitler organ, which says the American firm of E. I. duPont de Nemours, the Electric Boat Company, Armstrong-Vickers, Ltd., and the Imperial Chemical Industries of England are all Jewish.

“The official American munitions investigation committee furnishes us with new disclosures every day which show the close international connection and the Zionist profiteering policy of the merchants of death,” declares the newspaper.

“Now the Imperial Chemical Industries of England is also named; this is the gigantic chemical enterprise of which Lord Melchett, formerly Alfred Mond of Cassel, is leader.

“Lord Melchett, one of the richest Jews in England, if not one of the richest men in all England, is seldom absent when international Judaism stages so-called protest meetings against National Socialist Germany, when new boycott measures for inciting people are discussed….

“The Imperial Chemical Industries, it is now revealed in Washington, made a contract in 1932 with the American munitions firm of duPont de Nemours, by which the world is divided into spheres of interest for the sake of sales of explosives for war purposes, just as Armstrong-Vickers and the Electric Boat Company divided the world into spheres for the sale of submarines.

“Thus, the I.C.I. of Lord Melchett is permitted to supply all Asia with cordite, while duPont has been granted the sole sales rights for nitro-cellulose in South America and Europe….

“As these disclosures show, the whole world is supplied by these Jewish merchants of death. No wonder that the world is driven forward from crisis to crisis. But the dividends are blooming.”
