Virginio Gayda, authoritative Fascist spokesman, today blamed “anti-Italian” activities of Jews abroad for the issuance of the racial doctrine last week under the sponsorship of the ministry of popular culture, according to an Associated Press dispatch from Rome.

Writing in Giornale D’Italia, Gayda denied that Italy’s policy was influenced by Germany’s. He said that “Italy finds itself ever confronted by anti-Italian and anti-European activities of the Jewry of the great press of two world, of the great banks which dominate even statesmen and politicians… The history of this battle does not involve Germany, but it involves instead France, Great Britain, the United States and Soviet Russia.”
