Nazis Attack Jewish Army Plan; Scoff at Jewish Peace Demands

Download PDF for this date

The Nazis today gave vent to their irritation over the plan for a Jewish army in a Berlin broadcast to the German army which attacked the leader of the New Zionist Organization, Abraham Abrahams, in connection with his recent statement to a group of parliamentarians in London. (See JTA News Feb. 9.)

“It is doubtful whether the speech of the Jew Abrahams was dictated by cunning or impertinence,” the broadcast said. “The Jews of National Socialist Germany began their long voyage from Berlin to Vienna, thence to Prague, then to Warsaw and now to London.

“The activities of the Jews are well known to us, evidenced by the murders of Gustloff and vom Rath and the machinations of Mme. Lupescu. They are carrying on in the same way in Britain, the last outpost of Jewry in Europe, where Churchill and Abrahams reign.”

Regarding the Jewish proposals at the ultimate peace conference, the broadcast said: “The Jew Abrahams may be sure that the Jewish demands at the peace conference will remain only a charming dream.”
