Italian Spokesman Hits ‘Jewish Agitation’ in America

Download PDF for this date

According to a New York Times Rome dispatch, Virginio Gayda, writing in Giornale d’Italia, listed six causes for what he called an anti-Italian attitude of a large part of American public opinion. Among these points were: "Suicidal agitation of the Jews, who are doing everything possible to arouse anti-Semitic fury, even in Italy," and nascent struggle among races which, he said, seems to be developing in the United States.
