Madrid Broadcasts Attack on Jews in Program Beamed to Latin America

Download PDF for this date

An attack on Jews broadcast by Radio Madrid in a Spanish language program beamed to Latin American countries was heard here today.

The Spanish Government broadcast an article by the Bonn correspondent of the Falangist newspaper “Arriba” criticizing the return of Jews to West Germany. The broadcast alleged that “almost the entire German fur industry, one of the most prosperous and productive, is in Jewish hands.”

The broadcast said that in Berlin, which is the city these silent invaders prefer, they are well on their way to owning the famous Quadriga on top of the Brandenburg Gate. For the time being, they are in the bookstore business, publish some papers, own many of the Berlin hotels, and hold many posts in the judicature. It would seem that judgeships are particularly attractive to them and, naturally, they can obtain these posts in view of the German origin of most of them.”

An allegation was made that “Jews are flowing into the Federal Republic at the rate of some 400 a week. Most of them, something like 95 percent come from Israel,” the Radio Madrid announcement said.
