Book Charges Jews Have Infiltrated Major World Institutions, Including the Ranks of the Catholic Chu

Download PDF for this date

A book titled “Argentina Judia” (Jewish Argentina) by a government official who accused Judaism of being the source of “international synarchy” that has infiltrated major world institutions including “the ranks of the (Catholic) Church” was introduced with fanfare at a press conference here several days ago, attended by church officials, academicians and representatives of the Libyan Embassy.

The author, Horacio Calderon, a member of the right-wing Peronist Youth, was confirmed last week as press director of the Buenos Aires National University. That position was seen in circles here as a reward for his book. His book is startingly reminiscent of the 19th century work “France Juive” (The French Jew) by Eduard Drumont, which sparked anti-Semitism in France when it was published there.

At the press conference, Calderon stated that the “visible powers of Judaism are known as international synarchy whose various prongs are Zionist projects, diaspora projects. Jewish-Christian projects divided into capitalist, Communist, Masonic and Vatican internationals.” Regarding the alleged Vatican international, the author declared in his speech that “it participates actively in synarchic activity and has been established after a prolonged and persistent process of Jewish infiltration in the ranks of the Church.”


Calderon espouses the concept of “synarchy” developed by the late President Juan D. Peron who viewed all world events as the outcome of a sinister link between capitalism. Communism, Freemasonry and the church, all controlled in some occult manner by “international Judaism.” The philosophy was strongly reminiscent of the notorious 19th century forgery. “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” although Peron was not unfriendly to Argentine Jews and his regime maintained diplomatic relations with Israel.

Calderon declared in his speech that his book places Argentina among the non-aligned countries. “Thus, we shall stop being satellites of imperialism and particularly obedient instruments of the Kissinger plan (U.S. Secretary of State Henry A. Kissinger) which concentrates occult powers of Judaism and international synarchy.”

Last November, Calderon was one of the signers of an advertisement in local newspapers applauding the United Nations Third Committee draft resolution that identified Zionism and a form of racism. Those attending the press conference introducing his book included The Rev. Father Raul Sanchez Abelenda, dean of the philosophy faculty at Buenos Aires University, and Rodolfo Tecera Del Franco, dean of the sociology department.


Meanwhile, three Arab groups here published large advertisements in major Buenos Aires newspapers declaring that “A Palestine State is the only peace possibility” in the Middle East. The ad quotes PLO chieftain Yassir Arafat and the late President Peron.

The sponsors are Argentine Cultural Palestine House; Argentine Arab Youth for the Liberation of Palestine; and Palestine’s Voice. They expressed great satisfaction over the successes achieved by the PLO at the United Nations last year and drew a distinction between Judaism and Zionism.

In that connection they quoted views expressed by the “Ikuf,” the left-wing anti-Zionist Federation of Argentine Jewish Cultural Bodies which attacked the official representative organizations of Argentine Jewry such as the DAIA, the Buenos Aires Jewish Community Council and the Argentine Zionist Federation as perpetrators of “international synarchy.”

The ad noted with satisfaction that during 1975 a street in the city of Rosario was named “Palestine Street” and a square in the resort town of San Clemente Del Tuyu was named “Palestine State.”
