Download PDF for this date

Norman Jacques, anti-Semitic member of the Canadian Parliament, whom the B’nai B’rith Anti-Defamation League asked Secretary of State Gorge C. Marshall to bar from further entry to the United States, has answered the ADL by terming it “part of the Zionist terrorists who have been making so much trouble ## Palestine.”

The ADL letter pointed out that Jacques had joined Gerald L. K. Smith, head of the Nationalist Party of America, in public appearances in the U.S. during which both attacked the Jews. Jacques has admitted his ties to Smith and declared: “Gerald Smith is a truly great Christian gentleman who has been cruclly maligned. He stands ?or Christian nationalism. But of course the Communists have smeared him as anti-Semitic. This is a trick which they use very often. Smith believes in Ameirca for the Ameircans and in the American way of life. And he defends his ideals against those who would like to destroy and misrepresent them. I have a great admiration and respect for him and I might say that it is my hope to carry on in this country the great work which he is doing in the United States.”

Reiterating his attacks against the Zionists, Jacques stated that “Zionism was a nasty proposition–over there (Palestine) the Zionists kill people; over here they kill human minds by propaganda poisoning.”
