(Jewish Telegraphic Agency)

The opposition of the German reactionary and militaristic-nationalistic forces to the Kellogg Peace Treaty which is about to be signed in Paris has been clother in the form of anti-Semitic propaganda.

The “Voelkische Beobachter,” leading anti-Semitic journal, published today on the front page an article entitled. “The Jewish Kellogg Pact,’ in which it declares that “Stresemann proceeds to Paris in order to deliver Germany to a second Wilson swindel, to sign the so-called Kellogg pact.”

The newspaper asserts, quoting a report of the “Juedische Presszentrale,” German Jewish weekly of Zurich, in which it is alleged that S. O. Levinson, Jewish attorney of Chicago, was the author of the Kellogg treaty, that “the pact is intended to bind Germany while leaving all our enemies a free hand. We are dealing here, therefore, with an all-Jewish money policy, which is understandable when one knows that every third person in New York today is a Jew and when it is remembered that American Jews have, during the past ten years, spent for Jewish welfare purposes alone five hundred million dollars and have erected in one year 37 new synagogues,” the “Beobachter’ writes.
