“The persecution of the Jews is not the concern of the Jews alone, out is also a Christian concern, ” declared the Rt. Rev. Msgr. Fulton J. Sheen, in a broadcast over the National Broadcasting Company’s network, last night.

“There is no such thing as anti-Semitism as such,” Msgr. Sheen said. “To be anti-Semitic is also to be anti-Christian. We must look upon the persecution of Jews and Christians today not as separate, unrelated cause, but involving one another in some way because both are related to God.”
