"There is only one power which really counts. The power of political pressure. We Jews are the most powerful people on earth, because we have this power, and we know how to apply it." -- Jewish Daily Bulletin, July 27th, 1935

Adolf Hitler's election to chancellorship marked the beginning of the end of presumptuous and unregulated Jewish influence in German affairs. A nation without a homeland, a nation whose frontiers are decided by its racial genes and which maintains its nationhood whilst existing among host nations, cannot countenance the existence of a state that excludes them.

To the 'race nation' all other countries are a legitimate homeland, the denial of which threatens their existence. To the Jewish Diaspora, the world's most powerful trading and political bloc, Hitler's election meant interruption and interference with the world's commercial and political cohesion in which they are heavily involved.

Furthermore, he stood alone and defiant against the tidal wave of Jewish organised Communism then sweeping all before it. The Communists had seized Russia and were at the bottom of civil unrest and revolution throughout eastern Europe; Britain, France, -- the Spanish Civil War -- the British dominions and the United States. Germany alone repelled and held in check this tidal wave of subversion and insurrection.

The 'race nation' was quick to organise economic warfare against Hitler's Germany as a means of bringing the National Socialist state to its knees.


1933, the year in which Hitler took power was notable in the number of boycotts organised throughout the world, most if not all provoked by Jewish interest groups.

The first Jewish declaration of war was pronounced on March 24, 1933, one day after Adolf Hitler was democratically elected by the German people through a parliamentary vote.

"By using the new atheist exile politics they [the Zionists] provoked and increased anti-Semitism in Europe which led to the Second World War . . . The worldwide boycott against Germany in 1933 and the later all-out declaration of war against Germany initiated by the Zionist leaders and the World Jewish Congress enraged Hitler so that he threatened to destroy the Jews . . ." (Rabbi Schwartz, New York Times, Sep. 30, 1997.


"Judea Declares War on Germany! Jews of all the World Unite! Boycott of German Goods! Mass Demonstrations!" -- These were all headlines in the Daily Express on March 24th, 1933.

"March 24th, (1933) Reich leaders realised that boycott agitation was accelerating, especially in Great Britain. Placards proclaiming 'Boycott German Goods' spread infectiously throughout London, and were now in the windows of the most exclusive West End shops. Automobiles bannering boycott placards slowly cruised through the retail districts alerting shoppers. Everywhere, store signs warned German salesmen not to enter. British Catholics had been urged by the Archbishop of Liverpool to join the protest.
"London's Daily Herald carried an interview with a prominent Jewish leader who admitted, 'The leaders are hanging back,' but the Jewish people are 'forcing its leaders on.' Already the boycott has damaged 'hundreds of thousands of pounds of German trade'." -- Edwin Black, Jewish author. The Transfer Agreement, (p.34)
"Fifty-thousand were gathered (March 27th,1933) in and around Madison Square Garden, supportive rallies were at that moment waiting in Chicago, Washington, San Francisco, Houston, and about seven other American cities. At each supportive rally, thousands huddled around loudspeakers waiting for the Garden event, which would be broadcast live via radio to 200 additional cities across the country. At least 1 million Jews were participating nationwide. Perhaps another million Americans of non-Jewish descent heritage stood with them." -- Edwin Black, Jewish writer and author. The Transfer Agreement, (p.42)
"Mass meetings throughout Poland -- co-ordinated to the Congress rally -- had voted to extend the Vilna boycott to all of Poland. The three most important Warsaw Jewish commercial organisations -- passed binding resolutions to 'use the most radical means of defence by boycotting German imports.'
"In London, almost all Jewish shops in the Whitechapel district were displaying placards denying entry to German salesmen and affirming their anti-Nazi boycott. Teenagers patrolled the streets distributing handbills asking shoppers to boycott German goods. . . " -- Edwin Black, Jewish Writer and Author, The Transfer Agreement, (p.46/47)
"Judea Declares War on Germany!" -- Daily Express headline, March 24th, 1933
"War in Europe in 1934 was inevitable." -- H. Morgenthau, Hearst Press, U.S. September, 1933
"The Israeli people around the world declare economic and financial war against Germany. Fourteen million Jews stand together as one man, to declare war against Germany. The Jewish wholesaler will forsake his firm, the banker his stock exchange, the merchant his commerce and the pauper his pitiful shed in order to join together in a holy war against Hitler's people." -- Daily Express, March 24th, 1933
"Germany is our public enemy No.1. It is our object to declare war without mercy against her." Bernart Lecache, President, Jewish World League

Hans Grimm quoted a leading Jew who in Australia on January 31st, said to a well known German admiral:

"Herr Admiral, you have heard that President Hindenburg has assigned the office of Reich Chancellor to the National Socialist Hitler on the basis of the results of the last Reichstag election?"

He continued:

"Herr, Admiral. I here give you my word, think on it later. We Jews will do everything to erase this event from the world."

The next official declaration of war was issued in August, 1933, by Samuel Untermeyer. In July, 1933 in Amsterdam, Untermeyer had been elected to the Presidency of the 'International Jewish Federation to Combat the Hitlerite Oppression of the Jews.' The declaration of (Jewish) war was disseminated throughout the world by the New York Times, on August 7th, 1933.

"This declaration called the war against Germany, which was now determined on, a 'holy war'. This war was to be carried out against Germany to its conclusion, to her destruction." -- Dr. Scheidl, Geschicte der Verfemung Deutschlands

The International Jewish Boycott Conference assembled in Holland to discuss ways by which Jewish interests in Germany might be protected. Referring to the Jews as 'the aristocrats of the world' (the master race!), Samuel Untermeyer, the President of the World Jewish Economic Federation, said:

"Each of you, Jew and Gentile alike, who has not already enlisted in this sacred war should do so now and here. It is not sufficient that you should buy no goods made in Germany. You must refuse to deal with any merchant or shopkeeper who sells any German-made goods or who patronises German ships or shipping. . . we will undermine the Hitler regime and bring the German people to their senses by destroying their export trade on which their very existence depends." -- C.B.S, August 7th, 1933

[According to the New York Times transcript of Untermeyer's speech, it was aired on WABC. Just to keep the record straight. We transcribed the speech directly from the New York Times, which we retrieved from the micro films at the St. Louis Public Library. I HAD to read it with my own eyes! - JP]

"Joining with Samuel Untermeyer in calling for a war against Germany, Bernard Baruch, at the same time, was promoting preparations for war against Germany. 'I emphasised that the defeat of Germany and Japan and their elimination from world trade would give Britain a tremendous opportunity to swell her foreign commerce in both volume and profit." -- Samuel Untermeyer, The Public Years, p.347
"Hitler will have no war, but he will be forced to it, not this year, but later on." -- Les Aniles, 1934

By June, 1938, the American Hebrew was boasting that they had Jews in the foremost positions of influence in Britain, America and France, and that these "three sons of Israel will be sending the Nazi dictator to hell."

"The fight against Germany has been carried out for months by every Jewish conference, trade organisation, by every Jew in the world. . . we shall let loose a spiritual and a material war of the whole world against Germany." -- M. Jabotinsky, founder of Revisionist Zionism, Natcha Retch, January, 1934
"We Jews are going to bring a war on Germany." -- David A. Brown, National Chairman, United Jewish Campaign

The 'Anti-Nazi League' was organised into a 'World Economic Trade Boycott of Germany.'

"The world should cut off all relations with Germany; trade, social and diplomatic." -- Sunday Express
"He (J.E. Marcovitch, Egyptian newspaper magnate) had 'converted the whole Egyptian Press into a real battlefield against Hitlerianism'." Jewish Chronicle, 22nd February, 1935
"It (National Socialism) was condemned to war because it was a system which inevitably made enemies of Bolshevism and world capitalism." -- Louis Marschalko; Hungarian Write journalist and playwright
"Before the end of the year, an economic bloc of England, Russia, France and the U.S.A. will be formed to bring the German and Italian economic systems to their knees." -- Paul Dreyfus of Mulhausen, 'La Vio de Tanger' May 15th, 1938
"£500,000,000 FIGHTING FUND FOR THE JEWS . . . The battle will be fought on the world's stock exchanges. Since the majority of the anti-Semitic states are burdened with international debt, they may find their very existence threatened.
"A boycott throughout Europe of their export products by way of the retailer may undermine the present uncertain economic stability of several of the anti-Semitic countries." -- Sunday Chronicle, January 2nd, 1938

Note: Similar sanctions and boycotts were later applied to Rhodesia (Zimbabwe) and South Africa, to enforce the transfer of power from white to coloured rule.


Between January and April 1933, Germany's exports dropped by 10%. As the boycott organised by world Jewry spread, German trade was hit particularly hard and during the first quarter of 1933, Germany's vital exports were less than half its 1932 trade.

"When the Reich could no longer pay its obligations, Germany would go bankrupt." -- Edwin Black, Jewish writer/author, The Transfer Agreement, (p.185)
". . . if exports fell too low, Germany as a nation would again be faced with starvation." -- Edwin Black, Jewish writer/author, The Transfer Agreement
"How many months could Germany survive once the boycott became global, once commerce was re-routed around Germany? The boycotters adopted a slogan, 'Germany will crack this winter'." -- Edwin Black, Jewish writer/author, The Transfer Agreement, (p.188)

These declarations of war against what was undeniably a friendly state and a democratically elected government, caused the German people to react by calling for a one day boycott (April 1st, 1933) of Jewish businesses and goods.

The power of the media to distort events is there for all to see, in every bookshop throughout the land, sixty-years on. We are all familiar with the repetitive stories and pictures of this German boycott of Jewish goods; but the reasons for it are never mentioned, nor is the fact that it was a mere one day event.

"The Jews, taken collectively, view this war as a holy war." -- The Daily Herald, No.7450, 1939
"Even if we Jews are not physically at your side in the trenches, we are morally with you. This war is our war and you fight it with us." -- Schalom Asch, Les Nouvelles Litterairres, February 10th,1940

The joke doing the rounds of the British Union of Fascists at this time was that the Jewish national anthem was, 'Onward Christian Soldiers.'

"This war is our business." -- Rabbi Dr. Stephen Wise, Defence in America, June 1940
"A few days after the British Declaration of War, Weizmann offered the British Government 2,000 men for use in the near East, altogether, an army of 100,000 Jewish fighters against Germany." -- Dr. Scheidl, Geschicte der Verfemung Deutschlands
"Jewish brothers of the whole world: Let the holy flame of vengeance burn more and more brightly in your hearts with every hour! Be ready to act at any minute! You must do everything in your power to destroy the economic resources of the fascists, no matter in what part of the world you live.

"Go among the most vital sections of the death-bringing industries of the Hitlerian hangmen and cripple them with every means at your disposal. Boycott their products everywhere! Struggle together with the noble, self-sacrificing partisans!

"Develop everywhere a fully effective propaganda for solidarity with, and an active support for the Soviet Union. Mankind wants to be freed of the brown plague. Do your duty in this holy war." -- International Conference of the Jews, Moscow, 1941

"When one considers that a guest-people agitates throughout the world against the host nation, and further uses every means at its disposal for the destruction of its host nation, then one cannot escape the idea that it must probably be the most insane and monstrous spectacle which was ever seen in God's free nature.

"On the other hand, any severe reaction produced in Germany in the face of this Jewish conduct and political procedure can thus be explained." Dr. Scheidl, Geschicte der Verfemung Deutschlands

"I wish to confirm in the most vigorous manner the declaration that we Jews stand on the side of Great Britain and will fight for democracy. For this reason we place ourselves, in great things and small, under the comprehensive leadership of the British Government. The Jewish representation is ready to enter into prompt agreement, in order to employ every human-Jewish energy, technology, resources and abilities against Germany."

[In the book-on-line there was no reference as to who made the above statement. Possibly missed by whomever originally transcribed the book. - JP]

"War would undoubtedly serve the purpose of all Jews, Communists and doctrinaires in the world for whom Nazism is anathema, but it would be a terrible risk today for Germany herself. . . that this is not apparent to Hitler I cannot believe." Lord Halifax, British Foreign Secretary
"In losing Germany, Jewry lost a territory from which it exerted power. Therefore it was determined to re-conquer it." -- Louis Marschalko, Hungarian journalist and writer
"He (Henderson) said further that the hostile attitude in Britain was the work of Jews and enemies of the Nazis." -- A.J.P. Taylor, British historian


In the interests of fairness and balance it should be stated with equal emphasis that Jewish opposition to Hitler's Germany was far from being as universal as Zionist organisations will openly admit to. In Germany itself, Jewish organisations who through their close proximity to events, knew that acts of anti-Semitism were blown up out of all proportion by Jews abroad in an effort to justify the boycotts, and issued many protests:

"To the Embassy of the United States:

"We became aware of the propaganda in your country about alleged cruelties against the Jews in Germany. We therefore consider it our duty, not only in our own interests as German patriots, but also for the sake of truth, to comment on these incidents.
"Mistreatments and excesses have indeed occurred, and we are far from glossing these over. But this is hardly avoidable in any kind of revolution. We attach great significance to the fact that these authorities, where it was at all possible to interfere, have done so against outrages that have come to our knowledge. In all cases, these deeds were committed by irresponsible elements who kept in hiding. We know that the government and all leading authorities most strongly disapprove of the violations that occurred.

[Consider the possible 'source' of the deeds mentioned, and that their perpetrators 'kept in hiding'. Probably deeds carried out by the creatures who intended to cause unrest so they could claim "anti-Semitism". - JP]

"But we also feel that now is the time to move away from the irresponsible agitation on the part of so-called Jewish intellectuals living abroad. These men, most of whom never considered themselves German nationals, but pretended to be champions for those of their own faith, abandoned them at a critical time and fled the country. They lost, therefore, the right to speak out on German-Jewish affairs. The accusations which they are hurling from their safe hiding places, are injurious to Germany and German-Jews; their reports are vastly exaggerated.

"We ask the US Embassy to forward this letter to the US without delay, and we are accepting full responsibility for its content. Since we know that a large-scale propaganda campaign is to be launched next Monday, we would appreciate it if the American public be informed of this letter by this day." -- Reichsbund Judischer Frontsoldaten, e.V (Jewish Association of German ex-Servicemen)

These Jewish front-line veterans issued a further declaration:

"The atrocity propaganda is lying. The originators are politically and economically motivated. The same Jewish writers who allow themselves to be misused for this purpose, used to scoff at us veterans in earlier years. By raising your voice as honourable soldiers against the unchivalrous and degrading treatment meted out to Germany for the last fourteen years, you will most effectively contribute to reassure this country." -- Ingrid Weckert, Feuerzeichen, Tubingen, 1981, p.52/54


"In a declaration transmitted by the Jewish Telegraphers Union to the entire Jewish world press on March 17th, we have already emphatically protested against anti-German propaganda. We have objected to mendacious atrocity reports and reckless sensationalist news, and we are repeating it today in public.

"We oppose any attempts to misuse Jewish affairs for the political interests of other states and groups. The defence of the national rights of the Jews and the safeguarding of their economic position cannot and must not be linked with any political actions directed against Germany and the reputation of the Reich." -- March 26th, 1933
