Carolyn Yeager and Hadding Scott read and comment on Chapter 4, The Jewish Question – Fact or Fancy?

Pictured right: Theodore Herzl, considered the father of modern political Zionism, said that wherever Jews live in perceptible numbers, the Jewish Question exists – because “our presence produces persecution” where it didn’t exist before. The Jewish Question according to Ford was, how does a tiny minority gravitate to the highest places in government, business and finance?

Next week:  Chapter Five: “Anti-Semitism:  Will It Appear in the U.S.?”

Note: We are using the Noontide Press publication of  The International Jew — The World’s Foremost Problem which can be found online here as a pdf file.

    The use of ethnic names to denote negative character or behaviour is nothing exceptional in languages. Think of our terms vandal, vandalism or the verb to vandalize after a Germanic tribe that became notorious for its destructiveness during the Völkerwanderung.

    In India the term “thug” is used after a certain murderous robber sect. This term has also entered the English language.

    For the term “Jew” my Concise Oxford Dictionary gives the following meanings : n. person of Hebrew race, extortionate usurer, driver of hard bargains.
    v.t. cheat, overreach.

    The modern “politically correct” attitude is of course that such negative connotations are mere prejudice, but we know better.

    The traditional business pratices of England allowed wealth to be more evenly distributed. To the extent that we find those pratices quaint today is the extend to which we have aped the jew. What a shame.

    Yes, it shows how we have changed and how we look upon our recent past as almost the dark ages to which we couldn’t imagine returning. The basis of those practices seems to be NOT to compete with your fellow tradesmen, but allow all to have a decent or ‘living’ share of the business that was available in the area (not forced, though, because the public were free to go where they preferred).

    It brings to mind the neighborhood tavern, grocer, etc. People in the neighborhood went there because it was close by and they often walked … rather than looking for a more exciting, or popular place in a more distant neighborhood. It might not have done much for the quality of the business though. This is what we are taught today about the value of competition, and there is truth in it. But the extreme we have gone to today with the ‘blockbuster event’ or franchise that is marketed to the whole world is unhealthy and should be reversed.

    Some interesting history on Assassin

    The Assassins (Arabic: Ḥashshāshīn, also Hashishin, Hassassin, or Hashashiyyin) were an order of Nizari Ismailis, particularly those of Persia and Syria that formed around 1091. Posing a strong military threat to Sunni Seljuq authority within the Persian territories, the Nizari Ismailis captured and inhabited many mountain fortresses under the leadership of Hassan-i Sabbah. The modern word “assassin” is derived from their name.

    The name “Assassin” is often said to derive from the Arabic Hashishin or “users of hashish”,[1] to have been originally derogatory and used by their adversaries during the Middle Ages. However Amin Malouf states that “The truth is different. According to texts that have come down to us from Alamut, Hassan-i Sabbah liked to call his disciples Asasiyun, meaning people who are faithful to the Asās, meaning ‘foundation’ of the faith. This is the word, misunderstood by foreign travelers, that seemed similar to ‘hashish’.”

    The Masyaf branch of the Assassins was taken over by the Mamluk Sultan Baibars in 1273. The Mamluks however, continued to use the services of the remaining Assassins: Ibn Battuta reported in the 14th century their fixed rate of pay per murder. In exchange, the higher authorities allowed them to exist. The mention of Assassins were also preserved within Euroean sources, such as the writings of Marco Polo, in which they are depicted as trained killers, responsible for the systematic elimination of opposing figures. – Wiki

    Thank you Carolyn and Hadding for these wonderful Saturday discussions.

    This issue of the Jew being a race or a religion is important. The most atheistic people in the world are the Jews. Look at any survey and it is surprising to most people (not to me) that they are non-believers. They only believe in money. I also believe them to be the anti-christs and the devil on earth.

    But back to race or religion: If the Jews look to their faith as the justification of their having territory in the middle-east, then they have little claim whatsoever. Of course, for a religious people to claim land after 2000 years and kill or expel the existing population from its territory, it is hideous to say the least. But if we would say (and this of course happened), ‘OK, your faith gives you legal possession’… than they being atheists eliminates that argument too.

    Either way, the Jews should be removed from Palestine, and like the Germans recommended, they need to be put on the island of Madagascar.

    Of Mr Ford, Henry Ford was an unbelievable individual. And can you imagine the conversations in Ft Myers FL when he, Edison, Lindbergh, and Firestone gathered around the fireplace in the wintertime at the Edison estate?

    Thanks Robert, I’m glad you like the “Thursday discussions.” If you believe Jews to be the anti-Christ and devil on earth, you are in tune with Christian Identity. If I understand it correctly, this is their position. Jews are considered to be from the spawn of the serpent in the Garden of Eden story.

    Yes! Don’t we wish someone had recorded those conversations like Bormann had some of Hitler’s “table talk” recorded. They would no doubt be censored.
