Background: The following editorial by Ernst Hiemer comes from
Der Stürmer, Julius Streicher’s anti-Semitic weekly. Hiemer
was Streicher’s second in command. The essay makes the claim that hatred
against the Jews is a holy obligation for Germans. Note too the claim
that all Jews are alike, that each shares an identical hatred of Gentiles.

The Holy Hate
by Ernst Hiemer
One is overcome with horror upon reading the history of the
Jews, as for example in an unabbreviated and unfalsified version
of the Old Testament. One feels horror at the unique depravity
of the Jews, at the crimes they have committed, at the devilish
hate they have from the beginning directed against all those
who did not want to bow to the yoke of Pan-Jewry! This horror
becomes terror when one reads the rabbinical writings and reads
such outbursts of Jewish rage as one finds in the Talmud Schulchan-Aruch.
There it is written:
From Mt. Sinai:
What does Sinai mean? Sinai is the mountain on which Moses
received the Jewish laws from the God Jahwe. From this mountain,
the hatred of the Jews against all other peoples of the world
has spread. (Schabbath, 89a)
Every Jew has the obligation to see that Christian churches
are burned down and wiped out. The faithful must be insulted
and the clergy killed. (Schulchan Aruch, Jore dea, 146, 14)
The Gentile is human shit. He is just as unclean. (Orach
Chajim, 55, 20).
That is what the “holy” books of the Jews say. Every
Jew, regardless of whether he lives in Germany or America, whether
he speaks Russian or Spanish, whether he lives in the ghetto
or on Wall Street, thinks and feels as the Talmud commands him.
The term “Old Testament hatred” expresses the deep
antipathy Jews feel toward Gentiles. Despite its inferiority,
Jewry was able to survive over the millennia because of its satanic
hatred against Gentiles.
Jewish hatred today is as strong as it ever was. He who does not submit
is their enemy. The Jew hates the enemy with all his heart and with all
the strength of his satanic soul. One needs only to recall the pitiless
rage Jews have always shown against those who have attempted to rouse
the Gentile nations to battle against their deadly enemy by revealing
the Jew as the Devil in human form. Following the old method, these men
are defeated bit by bit until they are finally disposed of. The Jews systematically
destroyed their honor and cleverly robbed them of their possessions until
they suddenly died a “natural death.” We must leave to future
historians the task of explaining how many of the “heart attacks,”
“suicides” and other such causes of death for many opponents
of the Jews were really the work of eternal Jewish hatred. Things will
be revealed that we do not even suspect today.
Deep and boundless hatred is an essential characteristic of
Jewry. It is rooted in the Devil’s blood of the Jews and can
only be distantly understood by the other peoples of the earth.
Still, it is our duty to learn from history. Gentiles, above
all the Germans, were always too “decent” and “objective”
to respond to Jewish hatred in the same or at least similar way.
As a people of “poets and thinkers,” we thought it
beneath our dignity to respond with the same methods. We were
not able even to make clear to the public the filth and depravity
of our enemy. We were so “sensitive” that we avoided
fighting the Jewish creature.
Now there is war! The Jews forced us into a struggle for life
and death. The war has forced us to give up much we formerly
thought was necessary. It has also forced us to give up the “politeness”
that in reality is a weakness. A boxer in the ring must use his
fists to defend himself against his opponent. A fencer can only
win when he uses his sword. We as a people will survive this
war only if we eliminate weakness and “politeness”
and respond to the Jews with an equal hatred. We must always
keep in mind what the Jew wants today, and what he plans to do
with us. If we do not oppose the Jews with the entire energy
of our people, we are lost. But if we can use the full force
of our soul that has been released by the National Socialist
revolution, we need not fear the future. The devilish hatred
of the Jews plunged the world into war, need and misery. Our
holy hate will bring us victory and save all of mankind.
