Kill Jews, Baptise Moslems – to “save Christianity.”

August 24, 1923
See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

A new paper entitled “Desteptares Crestinnului” (Awakening Christendom) has made its appearance. A Colonel Stanics of the Roumanian army is the publisher, who thus outlines the policy of his paper:

All Jews should be killed and all Moslems baptised, otherwise there is no hope for Christendom.

The law under which it is permissible to adopt Roumanian names must be repealed so that Jews and other foreigners should be immediately recognize able by their names.

The law under which the Jews have obtained their emancipation must be repealed.

Jewish schools and synagogues must be burnt down and covered with earth so that not a vestige of them shall remain.

All books of the Talmud and Jewish prayer books should be taken from the Jews because it is from these books that they learn all their lies.

All Jews must be prohibited under penalty of death from obtaining any form of education, as only in this way it will be possible to bring them under subjection.
