Editor Says Jews Force Antisemitic Poison into His Soul

August 9, 1923

James Douglas, editor of the SUNDAY EXPRESS, asserts in today’s issue of his paper that “although all Jews and Jewry will unite in forcing the anti-Semitic poison into my soul, I shall never become an anti-Semite. Happily the Jews are not united; there are also anti-Zionist Jews. Are they, too, anti-Semites? I can be an anti-Zionist without being an anti-Semite,” he writes.

Mr. Douglas who favors an amendment of the Shechita law declares it possible that Shechita is more humane in 1923 than in 1906 when he first opposed it. “If so, I shall say so; if not, opposition to Shechita does not make me an anti-Semite.”
