Quakers Hit Nazi Anti-semitism As Menace to World

GERMANY’S ATTITUDE TOWARD THE JEWS IS “A MENACE TO THE WORLD,” THE COMMISSION ON RACIAL JUSTICE REPORTED TO THE SECOND WORLD CONFERENCE OF THE RELIGIOUS SOCIETY OF FRIENDS (THE QUAKERS).

“ITS EFFECTS ARE BEING FELT IN FRANCE, WHERE THERE IS A DEFINITE RISE IN ANTI-SEMITIC PROPAGANDA, AND IN GREAT BRITAIN, WHERE THE SO-CALLED BRITISH FASCISTS ARE DELIBERATELY USING ANTI-SEMITIC PROPAGANDA AND ARE STIRRING UP FEELINGS OF RACE DISCRIMINATION AND HATRED WHICH HAVE BEEN UNKNOWN IN THE COUNTRY FOR GENERATIONS,” THE COMMISSION SAID.

“FRIENDS SHOULD EVERYWHERE OPPOSE ANY ACTION DESIGNED TO PENALIZE PEOPLE BECAUSE OF THEIR RELIGIOUS BELIEFS, OR OF THEIR RACE OR THE COLOR OF THEIR SKIN.”
