World Jewry Declares War on Germany!
EIGHTY YEARS AGO, these bellicose words were emblazoned across the front page of the March 24, 1933, issue of London’s Daily Express: “Judea Declares War on Germany.” The accompanying article described the formal declaration of war by world Jewish leaders meeting in New York several days earlier on March 12.
The announcement came just six days after Adolf Hitler had been elected chancellor of Germany on March 6. It called upon Jews throughout the world to “unite in action” to bring down the the newly elected German government.
“Fourteen million Jews, dispersed throughout the world, have banded together as one man,” it declared, “to join together in a holy war against Hitler’s people. The appearance of the Swastika as the symbol of the new Germany has revived the old war symbol of Judas to new life.”
WAR BY OTHER MEANS
Lacking military power, organized Jewry commenced hostilities by other means. “The old and reunited people of Israel are rising with new and modern weapons to fight their age-old battle,” it said.
The war began with a worldwide boycott campaign against the German economy. “The whole of Israel throughout the world is uniting to declare an economic and financial war on Germany,” the announcement proclaimed. “[Germany] is faced with an international boycott in commerce, finance, and industry.”
The declaration went on to note that “Germany is a heavy borrower in foreign money markets, where Jewish influence is considerable.”
When attempts to cripple the German economy failed — and, in fact, it began to thrive under National Socialism, while liberal-democratic economies continued to suffer during the Great Depression — Jewry deployed its vast resources in the media and government in an intensified effort to bring about armed conflict, employing every devious device of diplomatic intrigue.
JEWISH EFFORTS REWARDED
Following a relentless “nonviolent” campaign, Jewish efforts were finally rewarded on Sept. 3, 1939, when Britain and France declared war on Germany, transforming what had been a local German-Polish conflict into a world war. Two years later they were successful in bringing America into the conflict.
