> directly ask them to make a statement on the negative impact of jews in government and influential positions
Who told a Berlin audience in March 1912 that “each country can absorb only a limited number of Jews, if she doesn’t
want disorders in her stomach. Germany already has too many Jews”?
No, not Adolf Hitler but Chaim Weizmann, later president of the World Zionist Organization and later still the first
president of the state of Israel.
And where might you find the following assertion, originally composed in 1917 but republished as late as 1936: “The
Jew is a caricature of a normal, natural human being, both physically and spiritually. As an individual in society he
revolts and throws off the harness of social obligation, knows no order nor discipline”?
Not in Der Stürmer but in the organ of the Zionist youth organization, Hashomer Hatzair.
As the above quoted statement reveals, Zionism itself encouraged and exploited self-hatred in the Diaspora. It started
from the assumption that anti-Semitism was inevitable and even in a sense justified so long as Jews were outside the
land of Israel.
