The Earl of Balfour wrote a false bulletin about the Battle of Jutland during the World War so that an international ring of Jewish speculators could clean up on the New York and other stock exchanges, and Winston Churchill, while Lord of the Admiralty, committed treason, in return for moneys paid him by Jews, according to charges made by Lord Alfred Douglas, notorious associate of Oscar Wilde in his libel suit against the London “Morning Post” now before court.
The “Post” , which has an anti-Semitic history of its own, is being sued by Douglas because it printed a letter from the editor of the “Jewish Guardian”, in which the editor had declared that Douglas’s “Plain English” must no longer be a paying proposition if it is was being forced to invent such “vile insults” against the Jews.
Lord Douglas’s counsel contended that the question whether the charges against the Jews made in “Plain English” were rubbish was not the point. The issue was solely, he said. whether the statement in the Post letter meant that the charges were due not to Douglas’ belief in them but to selfish circulation reasons. If they were rubbish, he said, the Post itself made similar charges.
Among the charges against the Jews, which Douglas made in his paper, and which he reiterated at the trial, declaring that the Post had shared the same views, was that the Jews organized the French Revolution, the Bolshevist Revolution, the Sinn Fein movement – that they engineered the Versailles Treaty – that Wilson, Lloyd George and all of the world leaders were controlled by the Jews, and the Jews had murdered Kitchener. He was killed by the Jews because it was thought he might prevent the Russian Revolution, he said.
The chief witness for Douglas is Capt. Spencer of New York, who served in the British intelligence service during the war.
