Dean Inge Denies Existence of “elders of Zion”

Download PDF for this date

Dean William Ralph Inge, “the gloomy dean,” strongly denied today the existence of an “Elders of Zion” group seeking world domination. Writing in the Evening Standard, he declared that not a Jewish but a Scottish stranglehold existed in London. He asked sarcastically why Chancellor Hitler, wanting to get rid of the Jews, did not import a few thousand Scots, who were unquestionably “Aryan.”
