“The Ten Commandments are not Jewish, but were stolen by the Jews from ‘Aryans’,” Alfred Rosenberg, ideological leader of the Nazi Party and moving spirit of the pagan cult, declared today in a message to the Reich convention on German History, now in session here.

Expressing “regret that the world bases history on the Jewish Bible,” Rosenberg stated that the Bible was actually inspired by Bablonian and Indian culture, which are really ancient ‘Aryan’ cultures.

“The Ten Commandments are nothing but material rewritten from the nine commandments composed by ancient ‘Aryans,'” the Nazi spiritual leader charged.
