Japanese Group Hits “jewish Origin” of Christianity

Download PDF for this date

A Federation to Campaign Against Christian Organizations has been formed at a meeting of Japanese patriotic societies in Tokyo, according to a New York Times dispatch. The Federation passed a resolution branding Christianity ” a device of Jewish origin which is encroaching on the Japanese spirit and must be eliminated.” The resolution also said that Christianity ” forces men to believe in Jesus Christ in the interests of the Jewish policy of world conquest.”

The meeting was organized by Haizan Minami, president of the Imperial Will Observance Association, and includes Prince Sanetoko Ichijo, a member of the House of Peers, among its sponsors. The references to Jews indicate the increasing influence of German propaganda in Japan in the view of observers at Tokyo, it was said.
