“pravda” Ridicules Rabbis’ Protest

April 3, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

The “Pravda” in an editorial today ridicules at great length the protest of the New York rabbis against the execution of the sentence against Archbishop Zepliak.

“The Jewish bankers rule the world” says the paper. “The Jewish rabbis forget that for centuries the Jews were persecuted by the Catholics”.

The real reason, according to the Pravda, for the protest of the rabbis is their fear they will be selected next for execution. The rabbis know “today you – tomorrow I”, says the Pravda.

“Soviet Russia,” continues the editorial, “is not embarassed by the protest. It would without any compunctions also hang the clerical representative of Kuhn, Loeb & Company or Rothschilds’ if it were necessary in the interests of the revolution”.
