See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

“The Jews of Transylvania deserve all punishment because they ruined Roumania,” was the harsh reply of the Metropolit Christea Miron, to a delegation of Rabbis, who visited him at Oradeamare for the purpose of expressing their condolence on the occasion of the Metropolits father’s death. The Rabbis at this occasion asked the Bishop’s intervention against the continuance of the anti-Jewish excesses in Transylvania. In reply the Bishop repeated the old anti-Semitic accusations against the Jews and stated that the Jews in Roumania are not entitled to complain against the government for “at present Roumania is ruled by a Jewish covenant.”
