Left Wing Groups Using Anti-semitism As Political Weapon, Glasgow Paper Charges

The Glasgow Jewish Echo charged today that radical left wing circles in Scotland were trying to use anti-Semitism as a weapon for political propaganda.

The newspaper revealed that these circles were distributing a leaflet which contends that the Allise entered the war not because of Nazi aggressiveness but because of a change in the German currency system which was disliked by the “international set of money lenders and bankers, mostly of Jewish origin.”

Stating that the power responsible for the present ware is “predominantly Jewish,” the leaflet, which is anti-Nazi, pleads for an “honest pact between Russia and France and Britain.”

“Apparently left wing radicals too,” the newspaper commented, “are beginning to realize that Jew-baiting is a convenient propaganda weapon.”
