The Jew and American Ideals

Harper & Brothers, 1921 - 147 ページ
Argues that antisemitism contradicts American ideals. In this spirit, criticizes the antisemitic propaganda of Henry Ford's "Dearborn Independent" and its presentation of the "Protocols" as genuine. Refutes the latter's claims about the existence of a Jewish conspiracy, the preeminence of Jews in the history of socialism, and the charges that the Bolsheviks are all Jews and all Jews are Bolsheviks. Compares Henry Ford not only to British antisemites but also to the notorious Krushevan, whose "Bessarabets" newspaper played a role in causing the Kishinev pogrom. Notes that the U.S. is not immune to racism and that Christians and Jews should cooperate to fight antisemitism.

127 ページ - ... most has been done in the way of acknowledging the debt due to the Jewish race, and of endeavoring to do justice to those American citizens who are of Jewish ancestry and faith. " One of the most touching poems of our own great poet Longfellow is that on the Jewish cemetery in Newport, and any one who goes through any of the old cemeteries of the cities which preserve the records of colonial times will see the name of many an American of Jewish race who, in war or in peace, did his full share...

It may be that Russia is, but the Jewish government of Russia is not. From a mass of underlings, the Jews of Russia came up a perfect phalanx, a flying wedge through the superinduced disorder, as if every man's place had been previously prepared for him. That also is the way it was in Germany. The German ceiling had to...
120 ページ - ... Nothing that has occurred recently has had my more constant thought, and nothing will have my more constant thought than this subject. In any proper way by which beneficial action may be taken, it will be taken, to show the sincerity of the historic American position of treating each man on his merits without the least reference to his creed, his race or his birthplace.
128 ページ - York sweatshops, they for the most part did not know that the inventors and operators of the "sweatshop" method were themselves Jews. Indeed, while it is the boast of our country that no race or color or creed is persecuted here, but liberty is insured to all, still it is a fact which every special investigator has noted that the only heartless treatment ever accorded the Jew in the United States came from his own people, his overseers and masters. And yet there is no evidence that either the "sweater"...

These lamentable events have caused the profoundest impression throughout the world, but most especially in this country, where there are so many of your co-religionists who form such a desirable element of our population in industry, thrift, public spirit and commercial morality. Nobody...

How can there be conspiracy among people who thus fight themselves? But another, looking at the same situation may say, look how the Jews control every phase of political opinion in Russia! Doesn't there seem to be some ground for the feeling that they are desirous of ruling everywhere?
