Anti-Semitism in America, in its present manifestations, is directly fostered by the propaganda machine of the Reich, states Lewis Browne, Jewish historian and author, in the current issue of “Look” magazine.

Anti-Jewish activities here must be curbed not just for the sake of the Jews, but for the sake of America, Mr. Browne writes. He points out that Hitler used anti-Semitism in Germany as a screen for spreading disruption and facilitating his taking over the state. Hitler’s agents in America seek to obtain the same result here, aiming at a Fascist revolution, the “Look” article states.

Mr. Browne suggests that anti-Semitism and any other incitement to race hatred be made a crime, as has been suggested by Wendell Willkie. Regarding Lindbergh, the writer declares that he believes the flier is an unconscious anti-Semite, but nevertheless is spreading the Nazis’ doctrines. As to Lindbergh’s assertions that the Jews are attempting to drag the country into war, Browne cites statistics to show that pro-war sentiment is strongest in sections where Jews are an almost minute minority.
