"How The Jews Use Power"

From Henry Ford's Book, TheInternational Jew

Two organizations, both of which are as notable for their concealmentas for their power, are the New York Kehillah and the American Jewish Committee.The Kehillah is the most potent factor in the political life of New York;it is the organization which today wields so large an influence on the restof the world, which consciously issues a program which on one side is pro-Jewishand on the other anti-Gentile. It is the central group, the inner government,whose ruling is law and whose act is the official expression of Jewish purpose.It offers a real and complete instance of a government within a governmentin the midst of America's largest and politically most powerful city, andit also constitutes the machine through which pro-Jewish and anti-Gentilepropaganda is operated and Jewish pressure brought to bear against certainAmerican ideas. That is to say, the Jewish government of New York constitutesthe essential part of the Jewish Government of the United States.

The word "Kehillah' has the same meaning as "Kahal," whichsignifies "community," "assembly" or government. Itrepresents the Jewish form of Government in dispersion. In the Babyloniancaptivity, in Eastern Europe today, the Kahal is the power and protectorateto which the faithful Jew looks for government and justice. The New YorkKehillah is the largest and most powerful union of Jews in the world, thecenter of Jewish world power has been transferred to that city. what isthe meaning of the heavy migration of Jews all over the world toward NewYork in recent decades. It is to them what Rome is to the Catholic and whatMecca is to the Moslem.

The Kehillah is a perfect answer to the deceptive statement that theJews are so divided among themselves as to render a concert of action impossible.That is one of the statements made for Gentile consumption. All experienceshows, even to the most casual observer of Jewish activities, that the capitalistand the Bolshevik, the rabbi and the union leader are all united under theflag of Judah. Touch the conservative capitalist who is a Jew, and the redcommunist who is also a Jew will spring to his defense. It may be that sometimesthey love each other less, but altogether they hate the non-Jew more, andthat is their common bond. The Kehillah is an alliance, more offensive thandefensive, against the "Gentiles."

It is a strange and impressive spectacle which the Kehillah presents,of a people of one racial origin, with a vivid belief in itself and itsfuture, disregarding internal differences, to combine privately in a powerfulorganization for the racial, material and religious advancement of its ownrace, to the exclusion of all others.

The American Jewish Committee came into being in 1906. There had beena government investigation into the "White Slave Traffic," theresult of which was a direct set of public opinion into channels uncomplimentaryto the Jews, and a defensive movement was begun. The Kehillah organizedprotests against the statement by General Bingham, then police commissionerof the City of New York, that 50 per cent of the crime in the metropoliswas committed by Jews. Very soon afterward, General Bingham disappearedfrom public life, and a national magazine of power and influence which hadembarked on a series of articles setting forth the government's findingin the White Slave investigation was forced to discontinue after printingthe first article.

The Kehillah has mapped out New York just as the American Jewish Committeehas mapped the United States, and practically every Jew belongs to one ormore lodges, secret societies, unions, orders, committees and federations.The list is a prodigious one. The purposes interlace and the methods dovetailin such a manner as to bring every phase of American life not only underthe watchful eye, but under the swift and powerful action of experiencedcompulsion upon public affairs.

At the meeting which organized the Kehillah a number of sentiments wereexpressed which are worthy of consideration today, Judah L. Magnes, thenrabbi of Temple Emanuel, chairman of the meeting, set forth the plan:

"A central organization like that of the Jewish community of NewYork City is necessary to create a Jewish public opinion," he said.

Rabbi Asher was loudly applauded when he said: "American interestsare one, Jewish interests are another thing."

The delegates at the first open meeting in 1906 represented 222 Jewishsocieties - religious, political, industrial and communal. Just over a yearlater the number of Jewish organizations under the jurisdiction of the Kehillahaggregated 688, and in 1921 well over 1,000. When the aggressive programof the Kehillah to make New York a Jewish city, and through New York tomake the United States a Jewish country, was announced some of the moreconservative Jews of New York were timorous. They did not expect that theAmerican people would stand for it. They thought the American people wouldimmediately understand what was afoot and oppose it. There were others whodoubted whether the same Kehillah authority could here be wielded over theJews as was wielded in the old country ghettoes. An official of the Kehillahwrote:

"There were those who doubted the ultimate success of this new venturein Jewish organization. They based their lack of belief on the fact thatno governmental authority could possibly be secured; in other words, thatthe Kehillah of New York could not hope to wield the same power, based ongovernmental coercion, as the Kehillahs of the Old World."

There is much in this paragraph to indicate the status of the Kehillahin Jewish life. Add to this fact that all the Jews who entered America livedunder the Kehillahs of the old world, whose power was based on coercion,and the situation is simple. Regimentation, the destruction of individualliberty which has risen to curse the world, is the basic principle of Jewishgovernment of the Jews, by the Jews.

What else can happen when world government of the Gentiles by the Jewsfor the bankers becomes established?

However, the misgivings of some Jews were not justified. The Americansmade no protest. The Kehillah went ahead with its campaign and America submitted.New York became Jewish. American life, American thought, and American politics,became Jewish-dominated in the decades that followed. But with it all, theJews exhibit a sense of the insecurity of this usurpation of power. It doesnot belong to those who have seized it; it does not belong either by rightof numbers, or by right of superior ability, or yet by right of a betteruse made of that power. They have taken power in America by audacity; theyhave taken it in such a way as to make resentment of it seem like an anti-racialmovement - and that is why they have held it as long as they have. Thatis the only way to explain the meekness of the Americans in this matter,and it also accounts for the sense of insecurity which even the Jews feelin the position they hold. The American is the slowest person in the worldto act on any line that savors of racial or religious prejudice. This makesfor a seeming aloofness from matters like the Jewish Question. This alsoleads uninformed public men to sign protests against "anti-Semitism"which are really designed to be protests against the publication of Jewishfacts. The foundation, organization and rapid success of the Kehillah inNew York is an object lesson set in the sight of the world, as to what theJew can do and will do when he exalts himself to the seat of rule.

As to the Kehillah being officially representative, it may be added thatthe Kehillah has in it representatives of the Central Conference of AmericanRabbis, Eastern Council of Reform Rabbis, Independent Order of B'nai B'rith,Independent Order of B'rith Shalom, Independent Order of Free Sons of Israel,Independent Order of B'rith Abraham, Federation of American Zionists - orthodoxJews, reform Jews, "apostate Jews," rich Jews, poor Jews, law-abidingJews and red revolutionary Jews. At the 1918 Convention there were present:Jacob H. Schiff, banker; Louis Marshall, lawyer, president of the AmericanJewish Committee; Adolf S. Ochs, proprietor of the "New York Times";Otto A. Rosalsky, judge of the General Sessions Court; Otto H. Kahn, ofthe banking house of Kuhn, Loeb and Company-AND-Benjamin Schlesinger, whohad lately returned from Moscow where he had a conference with Lenin; JosephSchlossberg, general secretary of the Amalgamated Clothing Workers of America;Marc Pine, also a recent consultant with the Bolshevik rulers of Russia;David Pinski; Joseph Barondess, labor leader. The high and the low werethere; the first world war was closing, the Russian revolution had beenwon. Judge Mack, who headed the War Risk Insurance Bureau of the UnitedStates Government, and the little leader of the reddest group in the EastEnd - they all met in the Kehillah, as Jews. Adolph Ochs of the great "NewYork Times" together with the most feverish scribbler on a Yiddishweekly that calls for blood and violence, all of them of all classes, boundtogether in a solidarity which has been achieved by no other people so perfectlyas by Judah. Banded together for the purpose of "protecting Jewishrights."

The Jewish Demand for "Rights" in Africa

What rights have Americans that Jews in America do not possess? Againstwhom are the Jews organized and against what? What basis is there for thecry of "persecution"? None whatever, except the Jews' own consciousnessthat the course they are pursuing is due for a check. The Jews always knowthat. They are not in the stream of the world, and every little while theworld finds out what Judah always knows. The program of the Kehillah wasostensibly to "assert Jewish rights." No Jewish rights have everbeen interfered with in America. The expression was a euphemism for a campaignto interfere with non-Jewish rights.

The New York Kehillah is the pattern and parent Jewish community in theUnited States, the visible entourage of the Jewish government, the dynamowhich motivates those "protests" and "mass meetings"which are frequently heralded throughout the country, and the arsenal ofthat kind of dark power which the Jewish leaders know so well how to use.It is the "whispering gallery," where the famous whispering drivesare originated and set in motion and made to break in lying publicity overthe country. The liaison between this center of Jewish power and the affairsof the people of the United States is made by the American Jewish Committee.The Committee and the Kehillah are practically identical as far as the nationalJewish program is concerned. Through their foreign associations they arealso identical as far as the world program is concerned.

The United States is divided into 12 parts by the American Jewish Committeeand every State belongs to a district headed by the most powerful and representativeJews. The Committee represents the focusing point of the religious, racial,financial and political will of Jewry. It is also the executive committeeof the New York Kehillah. New York Jewry is the dynamo of the national Jewishmachinery. Its national instrument is the American Jewish Committee. Amongits direct leaders and supporters today are the owners of powerful newspapers,officials in Federal, State and City administration, influential officeholders on public boards and corporations, members of the judiciary andpolice departments, financiers and heads of banking houses, mercantile andmanufacturing establishments, labor leaders and political party organizersof all colors.

There are certain announced purposes of these associations, and thereare certain purposes which are not announced. The announced purposes maybe read in printed pages; the purposes not announced may be read in therecords of attempted acts and achieved results. To keep the record straightlet us look first at the announced purposes of the American Jewish Committee,then of the Kehillah; next at the line which binds the two together; andthen at the real purposes as they are to be construed from a long list ofattempts and achievements. The American Jewish Committee, officially organizedin 1906, announced itself as incorporated for the following purposes:

1. To prevent the infraction of the civil and religious rights of theJews in any part of the world.

2. To render all lawful assistance and to take appropriate remedial actionin the event of threatened or actual invasion or restriction of such rights,or of unfavorable discrimination with respect thereto.

3. To secure for Jews equality of economic, social and educational opportunities.

4. To alleviate the consequences of persecution wherever they may occur,and to afford relief from calamities affecting the Jews.

It is an exclusively Jewish program. The Charter of the Kehillah empoweredit, among other things, to establish an educational bureau, to adjust differencesbetween Jewish residents or organizations by arbitration or by means ofboards of mediation or conciliation; while the Constitution announces thepurpose to be:

"To further the cause of Judaism in New York City and to representthe Jews in this city with respect to all local matters of Jewish interest."

Where the American Jewish Committee and the Kehillah join forces is shownas follows:

"Furthermore, inasmuch as the American Jewish Committee was a nationalorganization, the Jewish Community (Kehillah), of New York City, if combinedwith it, would have a voice in shaping the policy of Jewry throughout theland. It is expressly understood that the American Jewish Committee shallhave exclusive jurisdiction over all questions of a national or Internationalcharacter affecting the Jews generally."

It will be seen, therefore, that the Kehillah and the American JewishCommittee are one. The capital of the United States, in Jewish affairs,is New York. Perhaps that may throw a sidelight on the efforts which areconstantly made to exalt New York as the spring and source of all the thoughtsof the day.

Editor's Note: and now the seat of the United Nations system of worldgovernment!

New York, the Jewish capital of the United States} has been made thefinancial center, the art center, the political center of the country. Butits art is oriental sensuousness, its politics those of a Judaized Tammany.It is the home of anti-American propaganda, of pro-Jewish hysteria, a madconfusion of mind that now passes all over the world as the true pictureof America.

The doctrine with which so large a mass as the citizens of America havebeen inoculated is making havoc with the whole American program today. Itis "broadening" America out of all semblance to its distinctiveself and blurring out of recognition those determining ideals and ideason which American institutions were based.

"Jewish Rights" Clash with American Rights

This study of the Jewish Question in the United States is not based uponreligious differences. The religious element does not enter except whenit is injected by the Jews themselves; they persistently inject it in threeways: First, in their allegation that any study of the Jews is "religiouspersecution"; second, by their own records of what their activitiesin the United States consist of; third, by the impression which is verymisleading if not corrected, that the Jews are the Old Testament people.The Jews are not the Old Testament people and the Old Testament can be foundamong them only with difficulty. They are a Talmudical people who have preferredthe volumes of rabbinical speculation to the words of the ancient prophets.

In this series of articles we have set aside every non-Jewish statementon this religious question, and have accepted only that which proceeds fromrecognized Jewish sources. It has been most illuminating, in studying theproceedings of the New York Kehillah and the American Jewish Committee,and their affiliated organizations, as represented by their activities throughoutthe country, to find how large a part of these activities have a religiousbearing, as being directly and combatively anti-Christian.

That is to say, when the Jews set forth in the public charters and constitutionsof their organizations that their only purpose is to "protect Jewishrights," and when the public asks what are these "Jewish rights"which need protection in this free country, the answer can be found onlyin the actions which the Jews take to secure that "protection."

Thus interpreted, "Jewish rights" seem to be summed up in the"right" to banish everything from their sight and hearing thatsuggests Christianity or its Founder. It is just there, from the Jewishside, that religious intolerance makes its appearance.

Attacks on Christianity

Previous to the formation of the Kehillah and the Jewish Committee, thissort of attack on the rights of Americans was sporadic, but since 1906 ithas increased in number and insistence. Under cover of the ideal of Libertywe have given the Jews liberty to attack Liberty. What America has beentolerating is intolerance itself. Let us look rapidly down the years andsee one phase of that attack. It is the attack upon Christianity. Here area few items from the record. They are recorded over a period of years followingthe rise of Jewish power in America:

1899-1900. The Jews attempt to have the word "Christian" removedfrom the Bill of Rights of the State of Virginia.

1906-1907. The Jews of Oklahoma petition the Constitutional Conventionprotesting that the acknowledgment of Christ in the new State constitutionthen being formulated would be repugnant to the Constitution of the UnitedStates.

The Jews force "The Merchant of Venice" to be dropped frompublic schools in Texas, Ohio.

1907-1908. Widespread demand by the Jews for the complete secularizationof the public institutions of this country, as a part of the demand of theJews for their constitutional rights.

Supreme Court Justice Brewer's statement that this is a Christian countrywidely controverted by Jewish rabbis and publications.

Jews agitate in many cities against Bible reading. Christmas celebrationsor carols in Philadelphia, Cincinnati, St. Paul and New York met with strongJewish opposition.

1908-1909. Protests made to Governor of Arkansas against "Christologicalexpressions" employed by him in his Thanksgiving Day proclamation.

Professor Gotthard Deutsch protests against "Christological prayers"at the high school graduating exercises at Cincinnati.

Jewish community in Tamaqua, Pennsylvania defeats resolutions providingdaily Bible reading in schools.

Local Council of Jewish Women of Baltimore petitions school board toprohibit Christmas exercises.

Boycotts were instituted in New York against merchants who opened onSaturday.

Special efforts at this period to introduce the idea of the Jewish Sabbathinto public business. Jews refused to sit as jurors in court, thus postponingcases.

1909-1910. On demand of the Jews, the school board of Bridgeport, Pennsylvania,votes to discontinue the recitation of the Lord's Prayer in the school.

In Newark, New Jersey, the rabbis ask the night schools to discontinueFriday evening sessions, because the Jewish Sabbath begins at sundown onFriday.

The work of introducing the idea of Jewish national holidays into publiclife especially active.

1910-1911. An attempt to have Hebrew officially recognized was frustratedby Supreme Court Judge Goff.

Chicago Jews have election date changed because the official date fellon the last day of the Passover.

Jews oppose Bible reading and singing of hymns in Detroit schools.

Rabbis force Hartford, Connecticut, school board to drop "The Merchantof Venice" from reading list.

New York Kehillah does two contradictory things; favors bill to permitJews to do all kinds of business on Sunday, and pledges itself to cooperatein the strict enforcement of the Sunday laws.

1911-1912. Jews in Passaic, New Jersey, petition school board to eliminateBible reading and all Christian songs from the schools.

At request of a rabbi, three principals of Roxbury, Mass. , public schoolsagree to banish Christmas tree and omit all references to the season fromtheir schools.

A Jewish delegate to the Ohio Constitutional Convention suggests thatthe Constitution be made to forbid Christian religious references in schools.

The Council of the University Settlement, at the request of the New YorkKehillah, adopts this resolution: "That in the holiday celebrationsheld annually by the Kindergarten Association at the University Settlementevery feature of any sectarian character, including Christmas trees, Christmasprograms and Christmas songs, shall be eliminated."

1912-1913. Jews at Jackson, Tennessee, seek an injunction to preventthe reading of the Bible in City schools.

Annual Convention Independent Order B'nai B'rith at Nashville, Tennessee,adopts resolution against reading of the Bible and singing Christian songsin public schools.

Chicago Board of Education, scene of much Jewish agitation, approvesrecommendation of sub-committee to remove Christmas from the list of officialpublic holidays in schools.

1913-1914. The energies of the Jewish powers were concentrated on thetask of preventing the United States from changing the immigration lawsin a manner to protect the country from undesirable aliens.

1914-1915. More Kehillah attempts to secure modification of the Sundaylaws.

1915-1916. Jewish opposition to various movements towards making theschools free to use the Bible.

1916-1917. Jews busy carrying out an immense campaign against the "literacyclause" of the Immigration Sill.

On demand of the Jews the New Haven Connecticut, Board of Education preventsthe reading of "The Merchant of Venice," and extends the prohibitionto "Lamb's Tales from Shakespeare."

1918-1919. Provost Marshal Crowder, in charge of the Selective DraftU. S. Forces, had issued an order to all medical examiners, under directionof the Surgeon General, stating "The foreign-born, especially Jews,are more apt to malinger than the native-born." Louis Marshall, headof the American Jewish Committee, telegraphed demanding that the "furtheruse of this form shall be at once discontinued." President Wilson orderedthe excision of the paragraph.

The United States Shipping Board sent an advertisement to the "NewYork Times," calling for a file clerk and stating that a "Christian"was preferred - by which is meant always a non-Jew - the paper rejectedit. Louis Marshall again went into action and protested to Bainbridge Colby,Woodrow Wilson's Secretary of State, demanding "Not because of anydesire for inflicting punishment, but for the sake of example and the establishmentof a necessary precedent this offense should be followed by a dismissalfrom the public office of the offender, and the public should be informedthe reason." Attention is called to the tone which the American JewishCommittee adopts when addressing high American officials in the name ofJewry. It is not to be duplicated in the addresses of any other representativeof any other race or faith.

The Plattsburg Manual, published for officers in the United States officers'training camps, contained the statement that "the ideal officer isa Christian gentleman." The A J. C. at once protested against "Christologicalmanifestations," and the Manual was changed to read "the idealofficer is a courteous gentleman."

The Anti-Defamation Committee claimed that 160 American cities had excluded"The Merchant of Venice" from the public schools.

1919-1920. The Kehillah was so successful in its campaign that it waspossible for a Jewish advertiser in New York to say that he wanted onlyJewish help, but it was not possible for a non-Jewish advertiser to statehis non-Jewish preference.

And so it goes on, year after year, right up to the present day. Theincidents quoted are typical not occasional. They represent what is transpiringall the time in the United States as the Jews pursue their "rights."There is no interference with Jewish ways and manners. The Jew may use hisown calendar, keep his own days, observe his own form of worship, live inhis own ghetto, exist on a dietary principle all his own, slaughter hiscattle in a manner which no one who knows about it can approve - he cando all these things without molestation, without the slightest questionof his right in them. But, the non-Jew is the "persecuted one."He must do everything the way the Jew wants it done; if not he is infringingon Jewish "rights."

The Cry of "Anti-Semitism"

What people are now coming to see is that it is American rights thathave been interfered with, and the interference has been made with the assistanceof their own "broadminded" tolerance. The Jews' interference withthe religion of others, and the Jews' determination to wipe out of publiclife every sign of the predominant Christian character of the United States,is the only active form of religious intolerance in the country today. Notcontent with the fullest liberty to follow their own faith in peace andquietness, in a country where none dare make them afraid, the Jews declare- we read it in their activities - that every sight and sound of anythingChristian is an invasion of their peace and quietness, and so they stampit out wherever they can reach it through political means. To what lengthsthis spirit may run is shown in the prophecies of the Talmud, and in the"reforms" undertaken by the Communists of Russia and Eastern Europe.

That is not all; not content with their own liberty, not content withthe "secularization," which means the de-Christianization of allpublic institutions, the third step observable in Jewish activities is theactual exaltation of Judaism as a recognized and specially privileged system.The program is the now familiar one wherever the Jewish program is found:first, establishment; second, the destruction of all that is non-Jewishor anti-Jewish; third, exaltation of Judaism in all its phases.

Put the Lord's Prayer and certain Shakespeare plays out of the publicschools, but put Jewish courts in the public buildings - that is the wayit works. Secularization is preparatory to Judaization. The New York Kehillahis an illustration of how it is done, and the American Jewish Committeeis an illustration of the type of men who do it.

The work of the Kehillah is claimed to be "educational" byits defenders, on the few occasions when it is attacked. It is certainlythat. The best educated members are those who come from the Eastern Europeanghettos where the Kehillah idea was fully understood and practiced and whereJewish community government exercised unrestricted sway. Whatever otherphase of education the Kehillah may be interested in, it certainly stressesmost the education to separateness. Dr. S. Benderley, director of the Bureauof Education, gave away the objects of the Kehillah "education"thus:

"The problem before us was to form a body of young Jews who shouldbe on the one hand true Americans, a part of this Republic, with an intenseinterest in building up American ideals; and yet, on the other hand, bealso Jews in love with the best of their own ideals, and not anxious merelyto merge with the rest and disappear among them. That problem confrontsOrthodox and Reform Jews alike. It is not merely a religious but a civicproblem."

That is separatism and exclusiveness as an educational program, and itsresult cannot help being training in ideas of racial superiority and exclusivism.

It is the Jews' unceasing consciousness of the "Goy" that constitutesthe disease of Judaism, this centuries-long tradition of separateness. Thereis no such thing as "anti-Semitism." There is, however, much anti-Goyism.In all the countries of the world there is no anti-Arab sentiment of whichanyone knows. None of the Semite people have been distinguished by the specialdislike of any other people. There is no reason why anyone should dislikethe Semites.

It is very strange, however, that the Semite people should be a unitin disliking the Jews. Palestine, which still only has a handful of Jews,is peopled by Semites who so thoroughly dislike the Jews that serious complicationsare threatening the Zionist advances being made there. This surely is notanti-Semitism. Semites are not against Semites. They are at odds with Jews.

EDITOR'S NOTE: The original was written in 1921 when the Jewish populationof Palestine was still insignificant. In 1918 it was only about 4 per cent.

When Aryan and Semite are kept conscious through many centuries thatthe Jew is another and superior race, and when it is known that neitherAryan nor Semite are touchy on the race question, what is the answer? Onlythis, that the whole substance of such a situation must be supplied by theJews.

There is no such thing as anti-Semitism. There is only a very littleand a very mild anti-Jewism.

But a study of Jewish publications, books, pamphlets, declarations, constitutionsand charters, as well as a study of organized Jewish action in this andother countries, indicates that there is a tremendous amount of anti-Goyism,or anti-Gentilism.

"The administrators chosen by us from the masses for their servilitywill not be persons trained for government, and consequently they will easilybecome pawns in our game, played by our learned and talented counselors,specialists educated from early childhood to administer world affairs. Aswe know, our specialists have been acquiring the necessary knowledge forgoverning."
