The Way to Slavery
by Julius Streicher
The Jews never had a homeland or a fatherland. Their origin is as mysterious
as that of the Gypsies. We do know this much: The Jews came from the Middle
East to Europe through Constantinople and the Iberian Peninsula, where
it nears Africa. They have lived among the nations of Europe for many
centuries. Their outward appearance and spiritual characteristics quickly
distinguished them from the blond, blue-eyed Nordic peoples. The instincts
of Nordic blood and bad experiences soon led the European nations to protect
themselves from the Jews through legislation. As a foreign people, Jews
were prohibited from having a role in the personal lives of the host nations.
Particular care was taken to exclude the Jews from any role in government.
The Jews came to Europe with the concealed aim of sooner or later destroying
the peoples living there. From the beginning, they worked to eliminate
those restrictive laws. They went about it by promoting false ideas. They
went so far as to persuade the guest peoples to believe that a Jew could
become a Gentile. People began to believe that Jews could become French
in France, English in England, Spanish in Spain, Italians in Italy, etc.
He who opposed the idea was said to be a barbarian or an enemy of humanity.
The revolution the Jews brought about at the end of the 18th century in
France and in other nations eliminated these laws or rendering them impotent.
The revolutions incited by the Jews in the middle of the 19th century
also brought the Jewish plan of emancipation (the elimination of anti-Jewish
legislation) closer to reality. The end of the World War brought equality
to the Jews in Russia, Germany, and other states. Over the corpses of
the greatest and most significant war of the modern era, Pan-Jewry could
gloat at winning a victory over the peoples of Europe that World Jewry
had dreamed of for centuries.
After the World War, no nation in Europe would have dared to deny the
Jews a role in leading peoples and nations. So sure were they of their
power that they dared to put full-blooded Jews at the head of German provincial
governments, and even placed Jews in the position of Reich minister. The
Jew Walter Rathenau was the embodiment of the Jewish drive for world domination
in those days when Germany was betrayed and enslaved.
National Socialism in Germany and Fascism in Italy have put
an end to Jewish domination. In other nations, Jewry rules from
behind the mask of democracy. What one calls democracy today
is concealed Jewish domination. Jews determine what happens in
the democratic states, and Jewish bank hyenas and government
ministers are working for a new world war that will re-subject
Germany and Italy to renewed and final Jewish domination. In
England, the Jew Hore Belisha as war minister is preparing to
send the English people to the battlefields of a European war.
This is necessary if Jewry’s hopes are to be fulfilled. These
hopes are: the defeat of the National Socialist and Fascist led
peoples and their final enslavement under the yoke of the world
