Ludendorff Sees Jews Against Mussolini

Download PDF for this date

Under the heading “Jewish Front Against Mussolini,” the current issue of Halbmonatschrift out today, carries an article by General Erich Ludendorff, accusing the Jews of instigating the Italo-Ethiopian war.

“England and the Jews are now going together against Italy,” Ludendorff alleges.

The former member of the German General Staff and Hitler aide in the latter’s beer-hall putsch in Munich asserts that world Jewry has always aided Great Britain “to inflame the world.” Jewry helped British imperialism in the 18th century and also in the last World War, he writes, stating that the Balfour Declaration was Britain’s remuneration to the Jews for this support.

The article further asserts that Jews sought to stir a revolution against Mussolini, and also to help the expansion of Ethiopia because “Jews are the illegitimate children of the Queen of Sheba.”
