Churchill on the Jews

I found this story a while ago. It seems that an article written by Winston Churchill that never saw the light of day, until now, has been unearthed by a historical researcher in Cambridge University's archives. I can't find any links to the full article, so as usual I have to go by the snippets that have been released for general consumption. Regarding the wave of anti-Jewish feeling that swept through Europe following the Russian revolution, Churchill had the following to say:

"It would be easy to ascribe it to the wickedness of the persecutors, but that does not fit all the facts," the article read.
"It exists even in lands, like Great Britain and the United States, where Jew and Gentile are equal in the eyes of the law and where large numbers of Jews have found not only asylum, but opportunity.
"These facts must be faced in any analysis of anti-Semitism. They should be pondered especially by the Jews themselves.
"For it may be that, unwittingly, they are inviting persecution -- that they have been partly responsible for the antagonism from which they suffer."
The article adds: "The central fact which dominates the relations of Jew and non-Jew is that the Jew is 'different'.
"He looks different. He thinks differently. He has a different tradition and background. He refuses to be absorbed."

The mainstream media response was entirely predictable. Most refused to cover the news, and those that did launched scathing attacks accusing Cambridge University of an “extraordinary” lapse of scholarship. Various theories were proposed, all without any evidence whatsoever. The Times online quoted a Churchill expert who claimed that the article had been: 'ghost-written by a member of Oswald Mosley’s fascist party. He added that Churchill had refused to have it published because it was not his work and did not reflect his views'.
How convenient, theres just one major issue, which the Times has completely ignored, yet it provides crucial evidence. Churchill had published a previous article on the Jews in the February 8, 1920, Sunday Herald. That he wrote it is beyond dispute and what he says is just as controversial as anything quoted from this newly found article. The article is titled: 'Zionism versus Bolshevism, A Struggle for the Soul of the Jewish People'. It is a strange article in that it curiously oscillates between pandering to Jews, and accusing them of instigating the Russian revolution. Again I'd posit a similar hypothesis to my commentary on Death of the West: The author was not prepared to go out on a limb and completely rock the boat.
If we skim through to the more interesting bits we find:

In violent opposition to all this sphere of Jewish effort rise the schemes of the International Jews. The adherents of this sinister confederacy are mostly men reared up among the unhappy populations of countries where Jews are persecuted on account of their race. Most, if not all, of them have forsaken the faith of their forefathers, and divorced from their minds all spiritual hopes of the next world. This movement among the Jews is not new. From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States), this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing. It played, as a modern writer, Mrs. Webster, has so ably shown, a definitely recognizable part in the tragedy of the French Revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the Nineteenth Century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.

A few telling quotes from Jews themselves that I published on the anniversary of the Revolution can be found here. He goes on to say:

There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian Revolution, by these international and for the most part atheistical Jews, it is certainly a very great one; it probably outweighs all others. With the notable exception of Lenin, the majority of the leading figures are Jews.

In the Soviet institutions the predominance of Jews is even more astonishing. And the prominent, if not indeed the principal, part in the system of terrorism applied by the Extraordinary Commissions for Combating Counter-Revolution has been taken by Jews, and in some notable cases by Jewesses.

In my entry about the Death of the West and the cultural revolution I briefly touched upon Georg Lukacs who was deputy commisar for culture during the communist Bela Kun regime (during his time in office he put into practice his theories regarding 'cultural terrorism'). Churchill also mentions the regime:

The same evil prominence was obtained by Jews in the brief period of terror during which Bela Kun ruled in Hungary.

Although in all these countries there are many non-Jews every whit as bad as the worst of the Jewish revolutionaries, the part played by the latter in proportion to their numbers in the population is astonishing.

But the hordes of brigands by whom the whole. vast expanse of the Russian Empire is becoming infested do not hesitate to gratify their lust for blood and for revenge at the expense of the innocent Jewish population whenever an opportunity occurs.

The fact that in many cases Jewish interests and Jewish places of worship are excepted by the Bolsheviks from their universal hostility has tended more and more to associate the Jewish race in Russia with the villainies, which are now being perpetrated.

Regardless of ones views regarding what Churchill wrote, one cannot deny that this text is relevant when evaluating the possibility that he wrote this more recent discovery. Yet there is no mention whatsoever of this text which means that the journalist who wrote the Times online story about the newest article is either completely incompetent or intellectually dishonest. I know which one my money is on.

Well Nikola, since the times have forgotten let us remind them using the technique of "REPETITION"!

I do also agree with you about Churchill's strange journalistic style.

A possible explanation of this could be that it was edited to take away the potency of his more telling statements about Jews.

In the dead spirit of the current secular west, there is no doubt that he is "anti-semitic", "bigoted", and "senile". Now use these three buzzwords and you have an acceptable BBC broadcast.

Well there is no doubt that had practically anyone else said the same they would have been branded anti-semitic. But its almost impossible to tear down Churchills reputation as the leader who stood up to the Nazis. So they have to revert to claiming he never said this, or that someone else said it. Failing that they just bury the story. Just like they bury inconvenient videos on youtube and google.

If you want quotations about Jews and the evil they themselves admit to doing, go to Incogman. Maybe he's a Joo himself...only a Joo can expose their own evil...use it as a resource for Joo info in order to de Jooify our thinking.
