Fascist Paper Lays Change in Soviet Policy to ‘purge of Jews’

Download PDF for this date

The extremist newspaper Il Resto del Carlino today attributed the “improvement” in Soviet policy to a purge of the Jews by Joseph Stalin and attributed democratic policy in France, England and the United States to control by Jews. “If we have to take up arms, ours will be a Fascist war, proletarian and anti-Semitic, and we promise that the Jew will pay dearly for the bloodshed he has caused,” the paper said editorially.

“President Roosevelt is of Jewish origin and vainly seeks to hide his real warmongering sentiments by sending pathetic appeals to the heads of states. By his personal action he has envenomed relations with Germany and Italy, as witness the restrictions on Italian exports to the United States, so that the totalitarian states know him for their bitterest enemy.”
