Hitler Attacks Palestine Immigration Regulations and Anti-nazi Boycott

Download PDF for this date

Adolf Hitler sharply attacked Great Britain for demanding a thousand pounds capital for Jews proceeding to Palestine, while Germany keeps her gates open to any one in spite of overpopulation.

He delivered the attack while addressing a monster pre-election meeting at the Sport Palace in Berlin last night.

“It is very kind of England to declare that she is ready to receive the Jews with open arms,” Hitler declared, “but why should England make the admission of the Jews dependent upon a thousand pounds?”

The Chancellor challenged the world stating that “only fifty Jews were killed in Germany and these were Jewish scoundrels killed during the Nazi revolution. If we had wished we could have shown what form atrocities can really take.”

He asserted that the Jews were still retaining a proportionately high percentage of positions in Germany, while only Jewish criminals escaped abroad from German justice and that the majority of Jews continue to live in Germany unmolested.

Vehemently denouncing the boycott against German goods, Hitler ridiculed the suggestion that his government was unable to stop the spread of the Jewish boycott, maintaining that such a boycott was merely damaging the governments that permitted it and reducing German purchasing power.

Hitler also asserted that he sees symptoms that the boycott is declining in England and the United States and that the governments of both countries have turned their backs on the inciting elements promoting the boycott.
