The Jews all over the world are gloating over the destruction of Church property in Spain, where the Jewish Marranos have taken control of the Government, and are looking on passively while the mob burns down monasteries and nunneries and destroying Christian sanctities, the Hitlerist chief organ, the “Voelkischer Beobachter” alleges.

What does the Catholic Prime Minister, Dr. Bruening, say to it, the “Beobachter” asks. He and his Catholic Party are standing together with the Jews against the Hitlerist movement. We want the Catholic Bishops who have excommunicated members of the Hitlerist Party to tell us whether they are still going to support the Jewish Reds against us until their own Bishops’ Palaces in Breslau, Munich and Mayence lie in ashes and the Cathedrals of Cologne and Ulm are destroyed.

The way things are going now, the “Beobachter” says, we shall have the Jewish Marranos of Germany in the Republican Government sitting by calmly and ordering the German army and police not to do anything to stop the burning of Church property in Germany, as the Jewish Marranos of Spain, Zamora, Maura and de Los Rios, are doing now in Spain.

The Vienna “Reichspcst”, the organ of the Catholic (Christian Socialist) Party in Austria made a similar allegation last week (reported in the J.T.A. Bulletin of the 15th inst.), accusing the Marranos in Spain “who have taken control of the Republican Government” of being “behind the burning down of churches and monasteries there now”. The descendants of the Marranos are now members of the Republican Government it said. They brought about the Revolution: they are the victors now. The crypto-Jews who we thought were dead are trying again to dominate Spain as they did in the fifteenth century, when their activities made it necessary to establish the Inquisition to curb their power. The Marranos have been plotting underground for nearly 500 years, laying their plans carefully and quietly. People thought that in all these centuries they had become assimilated, and merged with the rest of the population, but now it is clear that they retained all along their poculiar beliefs and characteristics, waiting for their opportunity. What is happening now in Spain, the “Reichspost” concluded, is an object lesson for the entire Catholic world.
