THE HOLY SEE VS. THE THIRD REICH



Ronald J. Rychlak

Ronald J. Rychlak is Associate Dean for Academic Affairs and Professor of Law at the University of Mississippi School of Law. He is currently putting the finishing touches on a book-length manuscript entitled Hitler, the War, and the Pope.



Why Pope Pius XII Was Right

During World War II, the Catholic Church, on the instructions of Pope Pius XII, sheltered Jews and other victims of the Nazis, provided falsified travel documents to those who could benefit from them, distributed food and clothing to those who suffered, comforted the injured and grieving, and transmitted vital infonnation to the Allied military leaders. But because Pius XII did not publicly and repeatedly denounce Adolf Hitler, his role remains a point of controversy.

Some commentators charge that Pius II's "silence" reflected moral cowardice, and that he failed to, give guidance to his flock. Others variously assert that the Vatican was concerned only about Catholic victims, not Jews; or that the Church was overly influenced by worldly considerations; or that the Holy See was anti-Semitic; or that the Pope's dread of Communism blinded him to the truth about the Nazis. One writer (Jack Chick, Smokescreens, 1983) has gone so far as to say: "Pope Pius XII should have stood before the judges in Nuremberg. His war crimes were worthy of death."

Let us leave that ferocious assessment to one side while we reacquaint ourselves with the historical record, a record quite accessible yet not widely known. It shows not only that Pius did an enormous amount of work on behalf of suffering humanity., but also that his choice to work steadfastly behind the scenes was the best choice he could have made.

We must go all the way back to the First World War, when the man who would become Pope Pius XII, Eugenio Pacelli, was hard at work in Munich as the Vatican's nuncio (ambassador) to the German state of Bavaria. Germany was a major participant in that war and was viewed by many as the chief aggressor. Pacelli was charged with presenting Pope Benedict XVs peace plan to German leaders. He carried out the assignment and, while it did not directly lead to peace, several of Benedict's proposals were included a year later in President Woodrow Wilson's 14-point plan that helped bring the hostilities to an end.

Pacelli remained in Munich after the war, and on behalf of the Holy See he negotiated a concordat (agreement or treaty) between the Vatican and the state of Bavaria. Such concordats were important to the Holy See because without them the Church might be denied the right to organize youth groups, make ecclesiastical appointments, run schools., or even conduct religious services. Later Pacelli moved to Berlin as the Vatican's representative to the Weimar Republic, where he tried, without success, to secure a concordat to guarantee the Church's rights throughout all of Germany. He was called back to Rome in December 1929, elevated to the cardinalate, and named the Vatican's Secretary of State in 1930.

Adolf Hitler assumed the leadership of Germany in 1933, and one of his early international actions was the negotiation of a concordat with the Vatican, the very sort of agreement that Pacelli had tried to obtain almost a decade earlier. Hitler agreed to terms that were favorable to the Church, but he also made it clear that if the Vatican refused this offer he would impose harsh terms on Catholics throughout Germany. The concordat was signed by Pope Pius M on the advice of Secretary of State Pacelli. But Pacelli, who had negotiated on behalf of the Vatican, had no illusions about Hitler's trustworthiness. Pacelli joked that "at least the Nazis could not violate all of the provisions at one time," but even he must have been surprised at how quickly and how regularly the German leadership ignored the concordat. Only five days after it was signed, the Nazis passed a sterilization law that was clearly in violation of the agreement. Between the Nazis' rise to power in 1933 and the summer of 1936, the Vatican filed more than 50 protests with the Gen-nan govemment. The first protest - objecting to a boycott of Jewish-owned businesses - was one of 45 that the Nazis never even deigned to answer.

In August 1936 the German bishops asked the Pope to address the problems they were facing under Nazism. Since Pacelli was the Vatican official best informed on German matters, Pius XI asked him to draft an encyclical. (When the German Catholic hierarchy later thanked Pius XI for having written the encyclical, he politely declined and told them to thank Pacelli.)

The encyclical Mit brennender Sorge ("With burning anxiety") was one of the strongest condemnations of a national regime that the Holy See had ever published. In fact, the Vatican took pains to ensure that Nazi officials could not prohibit its distribution. Unlike most encyclicals, which are written in Latin, Mit brennender Sorge was written in German. It was then smuggled into Germany, secretly distributed, and read at the Masses on Palm Sunday, March 14,1937. Mit brennender Sorge condemned not only the persecution of the Church in Germany but also the neopaganism of Nazi theories, the idolizing of the state, and the use of race and bloodlines to judge human value. It declared:

Whoever exalts race, or the people, or the State, or a particular form of State, or the depositories of power, or any other fundamental value of the human community however necessary and honorable be their function in worldly things - whoever raises these notions above their standard value and divinizes them to an idolatrous level, distorts and perverts an order of the world planned and created by God; he is far from the true faith in God and from the concept of life which that faith upholds.



One statement in particular is an evident swipe at Hitler and Nazism:

None but superficial minds could stumble into concepts of a national God, of a national religion; or attempt to lock within the frontiers of a single people, within the narrow limits of a single race, God, the Creator of the universe, King and Legislator of all nations before whose immensity they are "as a drop of a bucket" (Isaiah 11:15).

The encyclical concluded that "enemies of the Church, who think that their time has come, will see that their joy was premature."

The Nazis confiscated all available copies of the encyclical, arrested printers who made copies, and seized -their presses. Those distributing the encyclical were arrested, payments due to the, Church from Germany under the concordat were reduced, and several priests were subjected to trials on trumped-up currency or momfity charges. In May, Hitler was quoted in a Swiss newspaper as saying, "The Third Reich does not desire a modus vivendi with the Catholic Church, but rather its destruction with lies and dishonor, in order to make room for a German Church in which the German race will be glorified.' Pope Pius M was henceforth considered an enemy by the Nazis.

During his pontificate Pius XI concluded concordats with at least 21 nations in an effort to secure world peace and protect the spiritual mission of the Church. At his death in February 1939, however, the world was perhaps less stable than ever. Germany had already annexed Austria and was looking belligerently eastward, having placed troops in the Sudetenland and threatened Czechoslovakia, Poland, and Romania.

A week after the Pope's death, the German ambassador to the Holy See addressed the Sacred College of Cardinals in what was expected to be a customary presentation of sympathy. Rather than merely offering condolences, the Nazi emissary spoke of an 'evolution of a new world which wants to raise itself upon the ruins of a past which, in many ways, has no longer any reason to eidst. " He adverted to the election of the next pope, and made it clear that Germany would view the election of Pacelli very unfavorably, based on the policies he had followed as Secretary of State. (The French foreign minister expressed France's hope that Pacelli would be elected, for the same reason.)

In one of the shortest conclaves in history, the Cardinals chose for their next pope Eugenio Pacefli, the 'most well-traveled and experienced diplomat available. The Canadian Jewish Chronicle commented that "although the election of two hundred and sixty-one pontiffs has hitherto been a matter of indifference to Jews ... the election of the two hundred and sixty-second pope was one which elicited considerable interest." The editorial continued:

The election of Cardinal Pacelli is more than merely a tribute to personal talent. It is the choice of a policy.... The frantic attempt, therefore, which has been made by Nazis and Fascists to influence the election, by speech, suggestion, and counsel, in favor of a cardinal friendlier to Hitler and Mussolini ... was ultimately foiled. The clumsy advice which ... Germany'sAmbassador to the Vatican recently gave to the College of Cardinals ... has already received an answer as unequivocal as the advice was arrogant. The plot to pilfer the Ring of the Fisherman has gone up in white smoke.

In Jerusalem the Palestine Post of March 6, 1939, reported: "The cordial reception accorded the election, particularly in France, England and America - and the lukewarm reception in Germany - are not surprising when we remember the large part he [Pacelli] played in the recent papal opposition to pernicious race theories."

Nazi media complained about the "prejudiced hostility and incurable lack of comprehension" shown by the Holy See. The morning after Pacelfi's election, the Berlin Morgenpost reported: "The election of Cardinal Pacelli is not accepted with favor in Germany because he was always opposed to Nazism and practically determined the policies of the Vatican under his predecessor." Das Schwarze Korps, the official publication of the elite Nazi Schutzstaffel (better known to us by the dreaded initials 'SS"), said: "As nuncio and secretary of state, Eugenio Pacelli had little understanding of us; little hope is placed in him. We do not believe that as Pius XII he will follow a different path." Germany was the only major power that did not send a representative to the new Pope's coronation. Three days later, Hitler invaded interior Czechoslovakia.

As all-out war threatened, the new Pope pledged to direct his energy toward preventing hostilities. Pacelli took the name Pius (in Latin meaning pious, kindhearted, and gentle; in Hebrew signifying conciliation) in honor of his predecessor. He selected a dove holding an olive branch in its beak as his coat-of-arms. For his device, he chose "Opus Justitiae Pax" ("the work of justice is peace"). His first message on Vatican radio was a pledge to work for unity and a plea for peace.

Unfortunately, Pius' was unable to prevent the war from escalating. Hitler invaded Poland in September 1939 and, with Europe at war, Pius had to change his objective and his tactics. Rather than issuing appeals to secular authorities, he decided to offer aid to the victims of war and to pray for peace. Any. activities that might compromise the Church's neutrality would have to be top-secret. This decision to work behind the scenes was what permitted Pius to carry out what one Jewish newspaper would later call "one of the greatest manifestations of humanitarianism in the twentieth century."

There were many practical reasons for Pius XII's decision to speak softly as he undertook dangerous lifesaving acts. Official neutrality permitted the Pope to offer his services as a peace broker; permitted the Vatican to cross behind belligerent lines to feed, clothe, and care for victims of the war; let the Vatican serve as an, avenue of communication between the two sides; may have lessened persecution of innocent Christians in Nazioccupied areas; and was in keeping with Vatican precedent. The Pope, however, provided another explanation of his motivation.

In his first encyclical, Summi Pontificatus ("On the Unity of Human Society"), released in October 1939, Pius wrote with anguish of the outbreak of war and laid out his plan for peace. The Church, he wrote, "spreads her matemal arms towards this world not to dominate but to serve. She does not claim to take the place of other legitimate authorities in their proper spheres, but offers them her help after the example and in,the spirit of her Divine Founder Who "went about doing good" (Acts 10:38). Quoting Jesus, Pius wrote, "render therefore to Caesar the things that are Caesar's." In other words, the Church had an important, but limited, role to play in resolving disputes in the secular world.

The Pope's obligation was to pray for peace and offer comfort to the afflicted. This did not mean, however, that he was blind to political reality. Summi Ponfificatus identified the cause of the current situation as "the ever-increasing host of Christ's enemies" who "deny or in practice neglect the vivifying truths and the values inherent in belief in God and in Christ." This was a clear reference to Hitler's Nazism. Pius wrote of "our dear Poland, which, for its fidelity to the Church, for its services in the defense of Christian civilization ... has a right to the generous and brotherly sympathy of the whole world, while it awaits, relying on the powerful intercession of Mary, Help of Christians, the hour of a resurrection in harmony with the principles of justice and true peace." With the Nazis having just overrun Poland, there was no room for interpretation. The American Israelite called the encyclical the Pope's "denunciation of Nazism." Later, as part of the propaganda war, French planes would drop leaflets containing the encyclical on German troops.

On the same day that Germany invaded Poland, Pius telegraphed the papal nuncio in Warsaw with instructions to organize Polish Jews for a passage to Palestine. One of the crucial terms of the concordat with Germany was that German officials were to regard baptized Jews as Christians. Accordingly, Pius ordered his nuncio in Turkey (Angelo Roncalli, the future Pope John XUII) to prepare thousands of baptismal certificates for refugee Jews arriving in Istanbul in the hope that such papers would gain them passage into the country. (When he was later thanked for his extensive lifesaving work, Roncalli said, "In all these painful matters I have referred to the Holy See and simply carried out the Pope's orders: first and foremost to save Jewish lives.") As the war went on, such documents were freely distributed in all occupied nations, and Pius established a committee that helped thousands of Jews leave Europe with identification showing that they were under the protection of the Catholic Church.

Shortly after the invasion of Poland., several members of the German High Command began to fear that Hitler was going to lead their nation into ruin. They decided to explore the possibility of overthrowing him and installing a new govemment. They were concerned, however, that even if they brought Hitler down, the British and French might occupy Germany and mete out harsh justice. These patriotic anti-Hitlerites wanted to reach an understanding with the Allies before taking action.

Colonel Hans Oster of the German Intelligence Service recruited Dr. Josef Mueller, a leading Munich lawyer and a devout Catholic, to travel to the Vatican to convince the Pope to help broker a peace agreement between Britain and the anti-Nazi Germans. At great risk to the Church, Pius had his private secretary write a letter describing the plan and declaring that the Pope was ready to intervene with Britain for reasonable terms of peace. Unfortunately, the plot never advanced beyond this stage.

But in early 1940, when they learned that Hitler was preparing to mount an attack to the west, these anti-Hitler Germans again turned to the neutral world leader in whom they had the most confidence, P'Ope Pius XR. With his consent, their warning was passed through the Vatican by coded radio signals to the nuncios in Belgium and Holland, then forwarded to the Allied leaders in London and Paris. The warning went out about a week before the German invasions of Holland, Luxembourg, and Belgium, but the Allies were not able to stop the German Blitzkrieg.

After the Nazis invaded these small nations, Pius sent expressions of sympathy to the Queen of Holland, the King of Belgium, and the Grand Duchess of Luxembourg. When the Italian Fascist dictator Mussolini learned of the warnings and the telegrams of sympathy, he took them as a personal affront and had his ambassador to the Vatican file an official protest, charging that Pius had taken sides against Italy's ally Germany. The Pope responded that his conscience was at ease and added, "We are not afraid to go to a concentration camp."

In June 1941 Hitler invaded the Soviet Union, breaking his neutrality pact. The Soviets, who had been all too willing to be officially neutral vis-hvis Hitler in the first years of the war, were now invited to join the Allies against him. This created some concern inside the Catholic Church. Pius XI had written in Divini Redemptoris ("On Atheistic Communism," 1937) that no one who wanted to save Christian civilization could collaborate with Communists. Yet here it was: The Allies had made, the Soviet Union a full partner in the war.

The United States was officially still neutral, but the lend-lease law permitted President Roosevelt to lend or lease arms and equipment to nations whose defense was deemed vital to American national security. This law let American manufacturers provide war materiel to Great Britain, but American Catholics were very concerned about extending this special benefit to a Communist nation. Roosevelt asked Pope Pius to help change their minds. After being reassured that the Allies were not actually supporting the spread of Communism, Pius appointed the Auxiliary Bishop of Cleveland, Michael Ready, to "reinterpret" Divini Redemptoris and explain that it did not forbid the U.S. to assist the Soviets. American Church officials also put out the word that Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin was opening the way to religious freedom in his country. This was in keeping with the current Allied position, and it helped dissolve American Catholic opposition to extension of the lend-lease program to the Soviets.

Rome was, of course, particularly dear to the Pontiff s heart. He at first had tried to keep Italy out of the war. When that failed, he tried to obtain assurances from both sides that they would not bomb the Italian capital. Yet bombs fell on Rome several times, including a heavy raid on the moming of July 19, 1943. As was his practice throughout the war, Pius refused to go to a bomb shelter. Instead he watched from a window as for more than two hours waves of American bombers dropped hundreds of tons of explosives on Rome. As soon as the all-clear had sounded, he withdrew the cash reserves from the Vatican Bank and drove into the city. The ancient Church of San Lorenzo was partially demolished, as was the cemetery of Campo Verano, where bodies (including the remains of the Pope's parents) had been blown from their graves. Pius did what he could to comfort the injured, administered the Last Rites to those he could not save, and distributed money to those in need of food and clothing. One month later, when the district of San Giovanni was bombed, he was again among the first on the scene.

Pius encouraged the Italian leadership to seek a separate peace with the Allies, but Mussolini would not turn his back on Hitler. King Victor Emmanuel deposed Mussolini, having him arrested on July 25, 1943. Hitler, sensing that the King might now seek an accord with the Allies, decided to send his troops into Italy and essentially occupy his nominal ally. This created particular difficulties for the Holy Father. Italians had hitherto resisted the German call for deportation of Jews (some German leaders blamed this Italian reluctance on the influence of the Catholic Church), but now that the Germans were about to take charge in Rome, Jews were in grave danger. Pius helped many Jews flee Rome and offered sanctuary to those who could not or would not leave. He also had the Vatican secretary of state write to the heads of all religious orders, asking them to help refugees in any way they could. The Pontiff s swift action came none too soon.

On September 26, 1943, Nazi officials demanded of Jewish leaders in Rome 50 kilograms of gold (or the equivalent in dollars or sterling) within 36 hours. Otherwise, they would send two hundred Roman Jews to the concentration camps. Unable to come up with the full amount, the Jews needed help from a source they could trust. In his memoir Before the Dawn (reissued in 1997 as Why I Became a Catholic), Eugenio Zolli, then Chief Rabbi of Rome, recounts that he was selected to go to the Vatican and seek help. With false identificati on papers he got past the German guards that ringed the Vatican. Once inside, he explained the situation to Vatican officials, and they retreated to consult with Pius. After a short time they returned and offered an open-ended loan of any amount needed. The Germans would receive their payment.

But this won only a brief respite. Pius knew that though the Nazis wanted loot they also wanted Jews. Pursuant to his orders, nearly two hundred Catholic institutions in and around Rome were made available to shelter thousands of Jewish people. St. Peter's Basilica itself was made available. Pius took away the ceremonial halberds of his Swiss Guards and replaced them with machine guns, and for the first time in history the doors of the great Basilica were sealed during daylight hours.

As the Pope had anticipated, within a month the Gestapo conducted a door-to-door search of Rome. All Jews, regardless of sex, age, or health, were rounded up and sent to concentration camps. The number deported came to 1,015. Of these, only 16 would survive the war. At the time of the search, thousands of Roman Jews were safely hidden in the Vatican and in other Church properties around Rome. Had the Pope hesitated even for a few days to give these people sanctuary, most of them would have vanished into the Nazis' machinery of extermination.

The Germans never violated Vatican property in Rome, but churches, convents, and rectories elsewhere were sometimes raided. When this happened, the Pope filed protests with the proper authorities. He also devised subterfuges, such as encouraging the clergy to teach the Jews to chant the liturgy and, where possible, to dress them in religious garb. Jews who hid in Catholic buildings later told stories of switching from the Hebrew prayer Shema to the Latin Ave Maria in mid-sentence when they heard suspicious noises outside.

At the direction of the Pope, efforts to save Jews were carried out in Nazi-occupied nations across Europe. In Hungary, for example, many Jews went through actual conversions to Catholicism. Undoubtedly many of these were expedient conversions undertaken to avoid Nazi persecution, and many such converts returned to their Jewish faith after the war. Yet here - as with Roncalli and the Istanbul baptismal certificates - we may choose to consider it a measure of Pius's cornmitment to saving Jewish lives, that he would approve of what might be viewed as a questionable religious practice in order to carry out vital humanitarian work. Church officials were not unaware of the meaning of their sudden success at evangelization. One small church in Budapest had averaged four or five conversions a year before the German occupation. In 1944, when Hungary was occupied, the number shot up: Six were converted in January, 23 in May, 101 in June, over 700 in September, and over 1,000 in October. When the Nazis recognized that such conversions were being done only to avoid deportation, they began persecuting the "converts," and the numbers fell dramatically.

Despite the Church's efforts in Hungary, 437,000 Jews had been deported by mid-summer 1944. On June 25 Pius XII intensified the campaign with an open telegram to the Regent of Hungary, Admiral Horthy. In, it he wrote:

Supplications have been addressed to Us from different sources that We should exert all Our influence to shorten and mitigate the sufferings that have for so long been peacefully endured on account of their national or racial origin by a great number of unfortunate people elonging to this noble and chivalrous nation. In accordance with Our service of love, which embraces every human being, Our fatherly heart could not remain insensible to these urgent demands. For this reason We applied to your Serene Highness appealing to your noble feelings in the full trust that your Serene Highness will do everything in your power to save many unfortunate people from further pain and suffering.

Pius also sent an open telegram to Hungarian Cardinal Seredi, asking for support in protecting victims of the Nazis. This telegram was read publicly in many churches before all copies were confiscated by the government. Admiral Horthy complained to the occupying Germans that he was bombarded with telegrams from Church officials and that the nuncio was calling on him several times a day. In the face of these protests, Horthy withdrew Hungarian support from the deportation process, making it impossible for the Germans to continue. More than 170,000 Hungarian Jews were saved from deportation on the very eve of their intended departure, thanks to the intervention of the Pope.

Back in Rome, nine months of Nazi occupation ended in June 1944. When the Allied forces entered the city, thousands who had been in hiding ran outside for the first time in months. There was a massive, joyous march up to the Vatican City to thank God for bringing them through the war. These people had no doubts about where the Pope stood. Crowds streamed into the square and called for Papa Pacelli, who appeared on the loggia and spoke to the people, thanking God and the saints for saving Rome.

As for Jewish testimonials to Pius XII's effectiveness by those on the spot, they are unequivocal. A Jewish Brigade officer recalling Rome's liberation later (in Davar, the Hebrew daily newspaper of Israel's Federation of Labor) said: "When we entered Rome, the Jewish survivors told us…: If we have been rescued; if Jews are still alive in Rome, come with us and thank the pope in the Vatican. For in the Vatican proper, in churches, monasteries, and private homes, Jews were kept hidden at his personal orders." The Committee on Army and Navy Religious Activities of the American Jewish Welfare Board wrote to the Pope. The letter said, in part:

We have received reports from our military chaplains in Italy of the aid and protection given to Italian Jews by the Vatican, priests, and church institutions during the Nazi occupation of the country. We are deeply moved by this extraordinary display of Christian love - the more so as we know the risk incurred by those who afforded shelter to Jews.... From the bottom of our hearts we send you the assurances of our undying gratitude.

By working behind the scenes, the Catholic Church was directly responsible for saving hundreds of thousands of lives. Had Pius decided to take to the pulpit to denounce Hitler's terrible treatment of the Jews (or, for that matter, his treatment of Catholic clergy), Hitler almost certainly would have directed his might against the Church, and she would have been unable to engage in her lifesaving activities.

Let there be no mistake. Hitler occupied Rome from September 1943 until June 1944, and he would have overrun the Vatican if the Pontiff had sufficiently provoked him. Written statements by the German ambassador to Italy, Rudolf Rahn, describe a plot to take over the Vatican, kidnap Pope Pius and his cardinals, and hold them hostage. 'The fact of [the plan's] existence and its target is solidly anchored in my memory.' reported Rahn. Albrecht von Kessel, an aide to the German ambassador to the Vatican, and Karl Otto Wolff, a German general who was the SS chief in Italy toward the end of the war, both confirmed that there was such a plan.

The Germans were smart enough to avoid the public relations nightmare that an invasion of the Vatican would entail unless it were absolutely necessary. They tolerated minor objections without reprisal, but when voices were raised too loudly they struck ruthlessly. Consider the well-known events in German-occupied Holland in 1942. When the Nazis first started deporting Dutch Jews to the concentration camps, converts to Christianity were exempted. Nevertheless, many Christian leaders protested. The Nazis replied that the men of the cloth should keep quiet or things would get worse. The Catholic Archbishop of Utrecht ignored this warning and issued a letter of protest that was read at all Masses on July 26, 1942. Five days later the Nazis announced a "countermeasure" against the letter. "If the Catholic clergy does not bother to negotiate with us, we are compelled to consider Catholics of Jewish blood as our worst enemy, and must consequently deport them to the East." The Nazis immediately began rounding up those Jews who had converted to Catholicism, including Edith Stein, the Jewish philosopher who had become a Carrnelite nun. She died at Auschwitz and has been beatified as Blessed Edith Stein.

An overt condemnation from the Pope would be something the Nazis could not ignore. Such a statement would almost certainly have resulted in the Nazis killing many of the innocent people Pius had made it his duty to protect, and would have been the end of the Church's lifesaving efforts. The most important testimony concerning the Pope's wartime performance comes, of course, from those who were there. During the war, Grand Rabbi Isaac Herzog of Jerusalem wrote:

I well know that His Holiness the Pope is opposed. from the depths of his noble soul to all persecution and especially to the persecution ... which the Nazis inflict unremittingly on the Jewish people.... I take this opportunity to express ... my sincere as well as my deep appreciation ... of the invaluable help given by the Catholic Church to the Jewish people in its affliction.

After the war Moshe Sharett, who would become Israel's prime minister, told Pius XII that it was his "first duty" to thank the Pope and the Catholic Church "for all they had done...to rescue Jews." Maurice Edelman, President of the Anglo-Jewish Association, visited Pius XII to thank him personally for saving the lives of so many Jews. Pinchas Lapide, the Israeli consul in Italy, wrote that "the Catholic Church saved more Jewish lives during the war than all other churches, religious institutions and rescue organizations put together."

In 1958, when Pius XII died, the Israeli ambassador to the United Nations (and future prime minister), Golda Meir, said, "During the ten years of Nazi terror, when our people went through the horrors of martyrdom, the Pope raised his voice to condemn the persecutors and to commiserate with their victims." Nahum Goldmann, President of the World Jewish Congress, said, "With special gratitude we remember all he has done for the persecuted Jews during one of the darkest pen'ods of their entire history." Rabbi Elio Toaff, who would later become Chief Rabbi of Rome, said, "More than anyone else, we have had the opportunity to appreciate the great kindness, filled with compassion and magnanimity, that the Pope displayed during the terrible years of persecution and terror, when it seemed that there was no hope left for us." The Jewish Post (Winnipeg) reported on November 6, 1958:

It is understandable why the death of Pope Pius XII should have called forth expressions of sincere grief from practically all sections of American Jewry. For there probably was not a single ruler of our generation who did more to help the Jews in their hour of greatest tragedy, during the Nazi occupation of Europe, than the late Pope.

Pius guided the Church with a combination of caution, courage, and compassion. In so doing, he lessened suffering, saved many lives, shortened the war, and even helped the Allies win. In the midst of Europe's deadliest crisis, he was true and sure, a defender of the Church and a protector of humanity. Pius XII was right, and his detractors are wrong.

JEWISH PERSECUTION

TOOL of the International Zionists' Plan for World Dominion

Part One

by Jackie Patru

Introduction by: Steven Jacobson

The Orwellian world of mind control is a present day reality.

Few realize the extent to which society is manipulated and controlled by unseen forces. So much of what we know is programmed and indoctrinated into us at an early age, that many people do not give any thought to why they believe some of the things that they believe.

"No lie can live forever", said Egyptologist and poet Gerald Massey. "They must find it difficult, those who have taken authority as truth, rather than truth as authority".

People can be led to believe something that is not true when information is carefully timed, presented by a respected authority and repeated over and over again to establish a conditioned response. The essence of psychological warfare is to confuse the meaning of words and infiltrate the mind with conflicting concepts.

'Newspeak' and 'doublethink' are of particular interest when considering the subject of Jackie Patru's eye-opening, thought-provoking and meticulously-researched summary study on "Jewish Persecution".

Undoubtedly, there will be those who will label this important work "anti-Semitic" as a distraction to draw attention away from its many insights that contribute to our understanding.

The Jew has long been an enigma to himself and the world -- a condition orchestrated by a corrupt priesthood from behind the scenes.

Having been born a Jew, I became acutely aware of the enigma of being a Jew and the hostile conditioned response of many non-Jews towards the Jew, perpetuating a vicious cycle of pitting one group against another as a mechanism of people control.

This is a classic example of the Hegelian dialectic in practice where a problem is created and crisis-managed to a pre-determined resolution. All this is brought into sharp focus in this examination of the increasing influence of Talmudic Judaism in America and the world to the detriment of Jew and non-Jew alike.

Jesus was highly critical of the religious authorities of his day for corrupting the truth with the spirit of materialism. The Jews, under the propaganda of the Pharisees, were expecting a political messiah to deliver them. They did not understand the spiritual nature of the kingdom of God to be found within one's very self as a present reality.

Today, under the guise of Christianity, there is the expectation for a political messiah to establish and rule over an earthly, material kingdom, thus promoting world government under a different name as the kingdom of God on earth.

Our true identity is spirit-soul regardless of any material designation or label according to the external circumstances of the physical body and the culture and religion into which we happen to be born.

We are not the physical body. We are the spirit-soul within the physical body. Therein lies our predicament: we are eternal spiritual beings inside temporary physical bodies that are subject to death.

After reading Jackie Patru's "Persecution of the Jews", consider this thought: Spiritual consciousness is the only solution to problems created by material consciousness. When men practice the highest ideal of religion -- love of God -- there can be no conflict.

Dedication

Nesta Webster was a credible and respected historian. That is a fact.

A few years ago I pulled a small, forty-page book off the shelf that had been collecting dust for more than a year. The book title is Germany and England, by Nesta Webster which began the process of dispelling the myths surrounding WWII, and most especially the real reason Adolph Hitler was hated by the International Bankers; so hated that they decided in 1933 that "Germany must be destroyed".

I came by way of the book from a newly made friend as a result of the Sweet Liberty radio broadcast that I've hosted for several years.

That small book was the beginning of a new phase in my lifelong search for 'truth and understanding', and my then new friend has since become an integral part of my life. We've laughingly considered that maybe we first met in that great library beyond this dimension. My love of reading, learning, knowing and understanding is surpassed only by hers.

While my search has always been of a spiritual nature, little did I know that a worldwide political plan cloaked in religion was the force that necessitated my search in the first place, for part of the plan itself is a form of spiritual vampirism. That is to say: spiritual truth known by the ancients has been blocked from our awareness by our religions, and in its place has been planted a perceived separation between us - each of us - and our Creator.

Miss Effie Burnthorn had the presence of mind as a young woman to purchase and read many historical books most of us didn't even know existed. Why have we not known? Because no Zionist controlled publishing house would touch them. Most all of them are available today, thanks to courageous and dedicated Americans who dare to publish and make them available.

I am honored to have become the recipient of Miss Effie's treasures; somehow she knew that one day I would discover the wealth of information awaiting my perusal and 'do something'. The faith she placed in me by placing the books in my hands is the honor she bestowed upon me. I dedicate this work to her with deep affection and gratitude, for without her, it would never have happened. Thank you Effie 'May', from the bottom of my heart.

Your devoted friend -- Jackie --

P.S. My thanks also to all of our listeners and friends who've sent books and material that have added to the treasure chest of truth and filled in many gaps. -- J

Preface

This preface must be prefaced with my promise to you, our reader, whatever religion you embrace: You will not be reading an anti-Semitic diatribe. You will be reading about the Jews, the Zionists, the Judeo-Christians, and the machinations of an Ancient Priesthood that have brought about the entire oxymorinic controversy, along with the resultant divisiveness and chaos necessary to clear the pathway for their plan of destruction and slavery for us all. With that said let us begin, together.

My mom used to sit for hours in the evening crocheting beautiful, intricate doilies. From time to time she would stop to study her work-in-progress. It was laid flat, examined as a whole, then small areas at a time were closely scrutinized and finally rows and stitches were counted. Sometimes a mistake would be found several rows back. After a mild expletive, mom would sigh deeply and begin unravelling her tedious work. I watched her many times take hold of a thread - one certain thread - and begin to pull. In a matter of just a few moments her long hours of patient work were quickly 'undone'.

I've often thought that the web of lies and deceit, manipulation of minds, the process of planning, intrigue, blackmail, bribery, murder, suicides, all the myriads of agencies, councils, organizations and secret societies, central banks, world banks, governments, parliaments, constitutions, religions and the resulting wars... the whole scheme of the long-laid plan to bring about a single World Government is not unlike the doilies mom so lovingly created.

However, the plan of which I speak was not lovingly conceived. It has been coldly, dispassionately and methodically contrived over the centuries by an unseen force whose aim is to despotically rule planet Earth and its people.

How does this ambitious enterprise compare to mom's doilies? Several years ago a thought drifted into my mind, took root and refuses to be budged: that is that there is a thread - a single thread - which will, when we find it, begin unravelling the intricate plan as effortlessly as mom's doilies were undone.

Maybe the undoing of this plan depends upon our ability to 'see' it for what it is; to discern truth from the lies, and liars from truth sayers. Maybe, the single thread we're seeking is simply the truth. This work is an effort to begin the unravelling process, for myself and its readers.

We've interspersed herein relevant excerpts from the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion.

As Douglas Reed (Controversy of Zion - 1956) stated in his chapter titled, Protocols, regardless their source, the Protocols should be read for content. We excerpt here a brief explanation from Reed's chapter as a foundation for the uncanny fulfillment of the writings, whoever its authors be.

". . . in 1905 one Professor Sergius Nilus, an official of the Department of Foreign Religions at Moscow, published a book, of which the British Museum in London has a copy bearing the date-stamp, August 10, 1906.

"One chapter was translated into English in 1920. [by Victor E. Marsden, Late Russian Correspondent of The Morning Post in England] This calls for mention here because the original publication occurred in 1905; although the violent uproar only began when it appeared in English in 1920. This one chapter was published in England and America as 'The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion'.

". . . it is of inestimable importance, for it is shown by the conclusive test (that of subsequent events) to be an authentic document of the world-conspiracy first disclosed by Weishaupt's papers.

". . . this one transcends all of them. It accurately depicts all that has come about in the fifty years since it was published, and what clearly will follow in the next fifty years unless in that time the force which the conspiracy has generated produces the counter-force."

Americans have been dragged into another neverendingwar against another illusory, unconquerable, enemy. Today the declared 'enemy' is TERRORISM; however, unlike the neverendingwars on Poverty, Crime, Drugs and Hate, America's New War is overtly militaristic in nature. The current president has declared this war; it was not initiated by a constitutional act of Congress.

Sadly, we note that since WWII over 200 wars have been fought by U.S. Soldiers, every such mission having been carried out under the guise of UN 'peacemaking', or 'peacekeeping' with a glaring disregard for the loss of human lives and the Supreme Law of this land - the Constitution for the united States of America.

UN Blue has become the color of death for the victims of 'peace' whose lives have been carelessly, thoughtlessly snuffed out; each death leaving a black stain on the souls of those US/UN Forces who 'just follow orders'.

Prior to WWII - before the U.S. joined the United Nations Organization - it was clearly understood by Americans and foreign governments alike that only the U.S. Congress could declare war. This understanding was expressed in a speech by British Prime Minister Winston Churchill on December 8, 1941, as Britain was declaring war on Japan:

"The President told me that he would this morning send a message to Congress, which of course as you all know is the instrument, the constitutional instrument, by which alone a United States declaration of war can be made. . . " Voices of History 1941

In view of the extra-constitutional power assumed by U.S. presidents since World War II - all subsequent wars having been executed by presidential executive orders or 'directives' - one might reasonably conclude that the 'constitutional instrument' had been duly amended. In the case of war-making power that conclusion would be incorrect. So then, what happened? In Protocol No. 10 we read:

"In the near future we shall establish the responsibility of presidents.

"Independently of this we shall invest the president with the right of declaring a state of war."

"We shall justify this last right on the ground that the president as chief of the whole army of the country must have it at his disposal, in case of need for the defense of the new republican constitution. . . " Protocol No. 10

In two separate conversations - with Brian Merchant in 1994 and Bill Leary in 1996 - with the National Security Council, we were informed that: presidential executive orders are 'not law'; presidential executive orders do not 'become' law; and 'there is no legal or criminal penalty for failure to obey an executive order'.

Brian Merchant claimed that the president controls the military because he is 'Commander and Chief of the Army and Navy'. In response to the reminder that under the Constitution the president does not become Commander and Chief of the Army and Navy until 'called into the service of the United States' by a Congressional declaration of war, Merchant casually remarked:

"However, under International Law, PEACEKEEPING IS NOT DEFINED AS WAR."

George Orwell's book, 1984, explains the slight-of-hand (or slight-of-mind) maneuvers which effected this sudden shift in unconstitutional presidential power. It's called NewSpeak which leads to NewThink, or more aptly NoThink. In a Logocracy, the perfection of the language is essential to the perfection of the system. As Syme, the language expert, told Winston Smith, in 1984:

"The Revolution will be complete when the language is perfect.

". . . even the slogans will change. How could you have a slogan 'freedom is slavery' when even the concept of freedom has been abolished?"

Eric Blair, using the pen name George Orwell, knew of which he wrote in his book, first published in 1949. He died immediately thereafter, by the way. We find the confirmation again in Protocol No. 3:

"The word freedom' brings out the communities of men to fight against every kind of force...

"For this reason we, when we come into our kingdom, shall have to erase this word from the lexicon of life . . . "

And again from Protocol No. 12:

"The word 'freedom', which can be interpreted in various ways, is defined by us as follows: -- Freedom is the right to do that which the law allows."

A new language has slowly and insidiously been introduced into our very minds: definitions of old words changed and many words dropped altogether along the way. Gay no longer means joyful and happy. The definition of tolerance, though, still means 'accepting that which is known to be wrong; accepting what is unacceptable'. The definition, however, was not checked in the most current dictionaries.

The sabotage of our nation's language, ethics, morals, character... along with the Constitution was planned long ago, and it could never have happened had we, the people remained vigilant, involved in the governmental process at the local and state level where true government in this country begins.

Regardless the alien traitors in the Executive, Legislative and Judicial branches of the U.S. Government or foreign interests installed in administrative, bureaucratic and diplomatic seats of power, sovereign states then and now have had the Constitutional power to instruct U.S. Senators and Congressmen. Along with the power to instruct comes the authority to recall U.S. Senators who are not voting as instructed by their respective state governments.

The power of instruction begins with we, the people, first instructing our local officials. Since local laws reflect state laws, we must also instruct our state elected representatives, keeping them mindful that all laws must always be pursuant to the Constitution, without liberal interpretation. We, the people, present our instructions to them and they in turn are to re-present those instructions to the federal officials. That's the real meaning of the word representative and that's the pecking order under the Constitution for the united States of America.

Legal 'experts' have promulgated the lie that upon the ratification of the 17th Amendment to the Constitution, states lost the power to recall U.S. Senators. In fact, the 17th Amendment changed nothing except the method of electing U.S. Senators -- that is, by direct vote of the people (popular vote) rather than selection by their respective state legislatures.

And, in further fact, according to a U.S. Senate report the 17th Amendment was never fully ratified by the required number of states; such was also the case in the matter of the 16th Amendment. Philander Knox, then Secretary of State, simply 'declared' both amendments ratified each in their turn. An investigation at that time by any state legislature would have and could have saved the people of this nation from the resultant unceasing hardships created by those acts of treason.

Unfortunately, the majority of state legislators are not aware of their Constitutional authority, power and duty. Many legislators - most of them Senate and House leaders and committee chairs - have succumbed to the lure of money and personal power whose instructions the rank and file legislators follow without question.

America's 'New War', while being waged in a military fashion - leaving in its wake the dead bodies of untold thousands of innocent people along with installation of new puppet rulers and rump governments - is simultaneously being waged politically against Americans. Afghanistan already has a new leader and a new government, courtesy of U.S./UN Zionist-controlled governmental puppets.

The political battlefields in America are within state and local government borders. The political enemy of Americans? Elected officials who have been and are now rubber-stamping/passing laws, which by their own admission they do not write nor 'have time' to read, and which will ultimately prove to be as deadly as the weapons of mass destruction used by the military crowd. People live and die by legislation.

"... and no one outside ourselves will any longer direct the force of legislation." Protocol No. 10

Particularly dangerous are the 'Emergency Health Powers Acts' already introduced in most of the states, that would unconstitutionally give the governors authority to declare 'state emergencies'. Under these Acts, the Governors will then delegate nearly limitless powers over every aspect of our lives to appointed bureaucrats.

Along with that deadly Act are the myriads of state Terrorism bills which are redefining the word terrorism, changing existing crimes (felonies and misdemeanors) to 'acts of terrorism'. In one state's terrorism bill, assault - both 1st and 2nd degree - are considered terroristic acts. In another, theft is now considered terrorism. Penalties range from imprisonment to property seizure.

As part of this new version of insanity little children are now being labeled 'terrorists'. The Washington Times Weekly, April 1-7, 2002, featured an article titled 'Schools don't play around when boys play cops and robbers" informed its readers that:

"Two second-grade students in New York... were suspended and criminally charged with making terrorist threats for pointing paper guns and saying, 'I'm going to kill you'..."

Children in the second grade are seven and eight years old. They are still babies, and they are being criminally charged with making terrorist threats! The new 'domestic terrorists' will be anybody who openly expresses opposition to the senseless mass slaughter and who resists the coming tyranny within our gates.

Additionally, all states are in the process of promulgating legislation to introduce new methods of taxation. In Pennsylvania alone, for the 2001-02 session over 600 pending bills address taxation. There are bills to take control of water usage, monitoring wells and levying fines for overuse. Others will further the process of regionalization, erasing political borders at the local, state and national levels, in preparation for the World Government; a 'world without borders' - Imagine that.

This new neverendingwar on Terror, an extension of the World Revolution which in our time began in earnest with the bloody French Revolution in 1789, is intended to be the final conflict to consummate the centuries-old political program for WORLD DOMINION -- a political program which has been cloaked for at least twenty-five centuries in the religion of the Talmudists.

World Dominion means exactly that: DOMINION OVER THE WORLD... every square inch of land; the treasures which lie beneath the earth and in the oceans; every drop of water; the very air we breath; and most importantly every single aspect of the lives, minds, hearts and souls of every single person in this world.

Do you doubt it? Consider this: While we could survive without the earthly treasures, no physical being can survive without wholesome natural food, fresh water and clean air.

FOOD is being genetically modified which will necessitate a natural mutation of the physical body for its continued survival. In addition to the genetic engineering otherwise health-giving foods and meat are being irradiated. New rules and regulations are being promulgated that would curtail the availability of home organic gardeners to use non-hybrid seeds. Everyone must be caught in their net.

We've just been informed by Reuters Health (May 10, 2002) that scientists have grown genetically modified carrots that contain the vaccine against hepatitis B. Soon we will be getting our vaccinations at the grocery store. Maybe we already are.

Who controls the food controls the people. This is a fact well known by the minions within the United Nations, as Catherine Bertini, Director of the UN World Food Program boldly announced at the Beijing Woman's Conference (September, 1995):

"Food is power. We use it to change behavior. Some may call that bribery. We do not apologize".

Bertini's credentials precede her UN position, as a former Confidential Assistant to New York State Governor Nelson Rockefeller. In The Next Million Years, (1952) by Charles Galton Darwin, grandson of evolutionist Charles R. Darwin, the objective is made quite clear:

"It is in the biological sciences that the most exciting possibilities suggest themselves... I will only speculate on a few among these possibilities which might have great effects on human life.

"I have already referred to the possibility of quite new sources of food and I need not enlarge on that further.

". . . hormones, those internal chemical secretions which so largely regulate the operations of the human body. The artificial use of hormones has already been shown to have profound effects on the behaviour of animals. . . might have similar effects on man. . .

". . . might be a drug, which... removed the urgency of sexual desire, and so reproduced in humanity the status of workers in a beehive.

"To produce effects of these kinds there must be a master and the master must be above and not subject to the procedure he is enforcing on his subjects."

The emphasized words above are important to your future health. And don't you be fooled by the claim that they've used animals to experiment. We have always been their guinea pigs. The plan is working as they designed it: today, fat little boys have cellulite on their stomachs, rolls around the waist and breasts like young girls; breast-reduction surgery is available for young men; those under forty are becoming sterile and losing their sex-drive. Many women either cannot conceive or prematurely abort.

Since that book was published over fifty years ago, millions of people are suffering from the myriad disastrous results of the intentional tinkering with our natural hormones – "those internal chemical secretions which so largely regulate the operations of the human body" – along with the ingestion and osmotic absorption of ‘artificial' hormones from over 60,000 known sources. Xenoestrogen - pronounced zeno-estrogen - is a synthetic estrogen that has created a world-wide incidence termed, ‘estrogen-dominance syndrome'.

Zeno-Estrogen is now present in our FOOD, WATER, and AIR. We eat it, breath it, drink it, wash with it, wear it, sleep on and in it and slather it all over our children and ourselves. Aren't we the obedient little worker-bees?

A report by Dr. K. Jensen of Canada states that:

"Over the past 50 years, we have seen a dramatic increase in estrogen-dominant conditions, the most common of which include endormetriosis (overgrowth of the lining of the uterus), PMS, uterine fibroids, breast cancer, fibrocystic breast disease, ovarian cysts and menorrhagioa (heavy periods).

"These conditions now affect about 50 per cent of women over age 35 in industrialized countries many of whom feel compelled to seek out harmful and/or radical treatments. Estrogen-dominant conditions involve relatively high levels of the hormone estrogen in relation to normal or low progesterone levels.

"Breast cancer is continuously on the rise; one in eight women are affected, while one in four will die from it. Other conditions associated with too much estrogen include low sex drive, risk of stroke and heart disease, osteoporosis, weight gain, hypothyroidism, infertility and ovarian, cervical and uterine cancers.

"Many of these female conditions eventually lead to a complete or partial hysterectomy (removal of the uterus); therefore, it is very important to understand the effects and prevalence of this surgery." www.enzymeuniversity.com

Dr. Jensen goes on to say that Canada's hysterectomy rate is one of the highest in the world, second only to that of the United States, and almost double that of most European countries. Thirty-seven per cent of Canadian women will have a hysterectomy by the age of 60. These hysterectomies can be avoided by the use of natural progesterone cream. (NOT pharmaceutical prescription hormones.)

Some – not all – of the sources of zeno-estrogen are listed here:

"Sources of xeno or foreign hormones (alien to your normal body functions) can come from many sources including but not limited to:

"Personal care items -- lotions, soaps, shampoos, mineral oil, perfume, hair spray, new carpets, certain building materials, certain types of furniture and decor items, cooking with plastic, room deodorizers, and even some clothing, etc. In short all things which are created with or contain petrochemicals are estrogen loaded.

"Animal products -- generally commercially grown that contain pesticide residues or added hormones (this does include most meat and most dairy products sold in most grocery stores)

"Commercially grown vegetables --- virtually every one contains pesticide residues. Almost our entire food chain contains zeno estrogenes (estrogens that are alien to your body).

"Most Prescription Estrogens & Synthetic Progesterones (Progesterone Acetate, Progestins, Medroxy Progesterone Acetate), and birth control pills.

"In addition, if you are overweight or have a high level of stress, the body compensates by accellerating estrogen production through fat cells and adrenal glands. www.hmscrown.com/Estrogen_Dominance.html

It has been said that when the elite insiders publish material, or discuss what they ‘plan' to do we can be assured they are already doing it. Darwin's book was published over 50 years ago, and Dr. Jensen uses that same time-line as to when the abnormally high incidence of estrogen-dominance was noticed.

Do you believe the elite are consuming genetically modified food? England's Prince Charles is an avid natural food advocate. No genetically engineered and irradiated food for the masters. No way!

Could the rush to forced vaccinations -- one of the powers itemized in the states' Emergency Health Powers Acts, among other motives -- be a step in reducing humans to the status of worker bees?

"But you yourselves perfectly well know that to produce the possibility of the expression of such wishes by all the nations [UN] it is indispensable to trouble in all countries the people's relation with their governments so as to utterly exhaust humanity with dissension, hatred, struggle, envy and even by the use of torture; by starvation; by the inoculation of diseases, by want, so that the people see no other issue than to take refuge in our complete sovereignty in money and in all else." Protocol No. 10

WATER for over a decade now, has been intentionally contaminated with the known carcinogen MTBE (methyl tertiary butyl ether), a gasoline additive mandated by the EPA ostensibly to facilitate a cleaner-burning fuel.

MTBE is extremely soluble in water, so the slightest leak from gas tanks or spills causes the MTBE to separate from the gasoline and find its way into the water tables. Its half-life is fifty years; the contaminant has found its way into the water in every single state; and the EPA was notified as early as 1989 of its threat to human life. That is why we assert that the water has been intentionally contaminated.

At this writing Alabamians are somewhat safer because that state's legislature banned the use of MTBE from the outset. That fact alone demonstrates the power state governments wield under the Bill of Rights. The Federal EPA 'mandated' the addition of MTBE and the state government of Alabama simply said: "No thank you."

Fresh clean drinking water is almost nonexistent today, thus creating a situation which enables international water conglomerates easier access to its control. From Scripps Howard News Service, 12-26-01 we read:

"Private industry's gold rush on for water rights - by Joan Lowy

"Water will be to the 21st century what oil was to the last - vast fortunes will be made by controlling it and nations will go to war to preserve access to it.

"In a world in which fresh water is increasingly scarce, that axiom is being taken to heart in the boardrooms of some of the globe's most powerful corporations.

"In Nearly every corner of the planet, international water conglomerates are vying to sign operating contracts, make deals, buy rights and acquire local water supply and treatment companies. It's a worldwide water rush."

The author's assertion that 'nations will go to war to preserve access to water' raises a question: Is she a modern-day prophet? Or does she have access to inside information? Is there another neverendingwar - this one for water - currently on the drawing board?

The lack of rainfall in some areas, creating artificial droughts while other areas are in constant flood conditions, is manipulated by the HAARP program (High- frequency Active Auroral Research Program) in Alaska, U.S.A., and other similar programs scattered around the world. Researchers have recently analyzed the fallout from the chemtrails (they look like contrails only they linger in the sky, puff up and form cirrus clouds that haze out the sun. It has been asserted that the metals found in the fallout are being used to facilitate the weather modification. (See Appendix A)

AIR is last here, but certainly not least. Embedded as a little known facet of the global warming scare is a scheme to not only control but now sell the air via pollution credits. Global warming is a scam perpetrated by scientists who prostitute themselves for financial grants. Those who don't arrive at the pre-determined and politically correct conclusions don't get the grants.

What are pollution credits? In a nutshell: when a pollution source is eliminated, i.e. crushing vehicles that fail emission tests when owners cannot afford required repairs, or the closing of an industrial plant, or installation of emission controls, air pollution is theoretically reduced. That is the alleged objective of the rigid regulations now being placed upon the lives of people in developed nations throughout the world.

In fact, it has nothing to do with 'purifying the air'. It has everything to do with more control and the all-mighty dollar. For each case of pollution reduction, credits are created that can be sold to the highest bidder allowing the buyer to legally send tons of pollution into the air, according to how many 'pollution credits' were purchased. It is happening on an international level, as well as within the united States. Did you get that? They are selling the air!

The Kyoto Treaty on Global Warming actually allows undeveloped nations (like Communist China) to pollute the air, while the developed nations pay the price.

THAT is what is meant by WORLD DOMINION. Although it is controlled and directed from behind the scenes by an invisible force, the program has obviously enlisted many useful idiots - as the Ruling Sect calls them - to bring the plan to fruition. The plan is being implemented politically at every level of government with barely a whimper of opposition from the people.

"Who and what is in a position to overthrow an invisible force? And this is precisely what our force is. Gentile masonry blindly serves as a screen for us and our objects but the plan of action of our force, even its very abiding-place, remains for the whole people an unknown mystery". Protocol No. 4

This is more a compilation of information than an exercise in writing. As I've poured over books, documents, encyclopedias, newspapers; as I've sorted, transcribed, arranged and rearranged, a fuzzy and confusing picture begins to focus. The information coming into the light is not only deeply disturbing (expressing it mildly), it is critical. It has revealed itself, indisputably, as a political program cloaked in religion.

The political apparatus enacts Godless and deadly laws; creates bureaucracies; executes wars; appoints or manipulates the election of corrupt judges who mock justice in any form; and in general places despotic leaders at the heads of governments worldwide. The nations' leaders do not lead. They follow directions of 'advisors' who take orders from their masters.

The religious apparatus - the gemstone of the plan - has ensnared the majority of the world's population in all its multi faceted forms, creating countless belief systems which all, ultimately lead to the same Godless end: the captivity and destruction of souls under WORLD ZIONISM.

Believing is not knowing. We believe by faith; we know by experience. Religious leaders have tremendous control over their flocks of sheep. Those who train the religious leaders in the various religions have even more control. Those who create the religions have nearly total control.

If the belief is embedded firmly enough the religious zealot will kill in the name of his god (the Crusades); will make slaves of his fellow man; and will anxiously await the day he and his god rule over all mankind. The Jews believe the Goyim will serve them. Christians believe the Jews will go to hell.

The realization of this fact is critical to all people of all races, religions and nations, including those born into Judaism/Talmudism unless they are solidly in the select minority of the Ruling Sect and its major tool -- International Finance.

Truth be known, there IS no minion of the Masters of Finance who is ever safely or solidly in the select minority, as was evidenced in the great social engineering laboratory of the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. In fact immediately after the Russian Revolution, the intelligentsia, or literati as they are proud to be called, who helped the Bolsheviks overthrow the Tzarist government, were simply lined up and shot dead.

Why? Many of them quickly recognized the horror they had helped to create. It was justifiably clear to the usurpers - the Bolshevist Zionist Jews - that those braintrusters could be equally instrumental in the overthrow of the evil regime they had aided and abetted to its success.

Under Lenin, Stalin and their successors, the power structure shifted like desert sands; those in power were here today, gone tomorrow at the bare whisper of a rumor, a mere accusation of disloyalty. Most often the whisperers were individuals covetous of the positions the accused held.

It would be safe to say that if the top boss himself stepped out of line, he too would have been eliminated, as were several U.S. Presidents who dared to believe that they were truly presidents and powerful enough to buck the system. Nothing has changed today except the players, who should beware the fact that history does indeed repeat itself. Why would it not, when the same Ruling Sect has been making and writing history throughout the ages?

The Elders address this specifically in Protocol No. 18:

"Criminals with us will be arrested at the first more or less well-grounded suspicion; it cannot be allowed that out of fear of a possible mistake an opportunity should be given of escape to persons suspected of a political lapse or crime, for in these matters we shall be literally merciless."

In case you haven't noticed, this is happening today. It need not continue.

This essay does not represent a complete overview of the Zionist plan for World Dominion, for its web spans hundreds of centuries in the weaving and its nuances would fill tomes. Secondly, your writer does not have a complete view... yet.

I see it as analogous to climbing a ladder. When we're at ground level we have a limited view of the surrounding landscape. As we begin to ascend the ladder of awareness our view broadens proportionately until we reach the top rung where the entire scene unfolds. I have no idea to which rung of that ladder I have climbed, nor what is yet beyond my view.

Maybe the process of awareness is not linear at all. Maybe it is more a process of removing layers of lies, akin to peeling the layers of an onion, until we reach its core.

Of three facts I am fully cognizant:

1) Religions were made to control the minds (beliefs and thoughts, thus the behavior) of the masses down through the ages. Nowhere is it written that Jesus claimed his intentions were to start a new religion. Nor have any of the great spiritual teachers made that claim. Religions were made by man. ALL of them.

2) Commercialism, Materialism, the love of money, is the seductive influence to which the masses of people in all societies in every age have succumbed. Had we not, the Plan would have dissolved into the abiding place from which it was hatched thousands of years ago. Had people 2,000 years ago heeded the words of Jesus; or would the so-called Christians of today heed his words this fact would be realized.

The love of money was and is understood by the Elders of Zion and utilized fully to their advantage, as expressed concisely in Protocol No. 1:

"Our triumph has been rendered easier by the fact that in our relations with the men whom we wanted we have always worked upon the most sensitive chords of the human mind, upon the cash account, upon the cupidity, upon the insatiability for material needs of man. . . "

3) The economic system was created by the same creatures who control the governments of the world today via UN mandates, central banks within the nations, the World Bank and the International Monetary System.

"Let me issue and control a nation's money and I care not who writes the laws."

So said Mayer Amschel Rothschild. Utilizing their 'power of the purse' (as Theodor Hertzl called it) they also control judges, politicians, education, the media, entertainment -- and they admittedly foment the wars. The unvarnished truth of history proves it, and it has been detailed in the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion.

"Through the Press we have gained the power to influence while remaining ourselves in the shade; thanks to the Press we have got the GOLD in our hands, notwithstanding that we have had to gather it out of oceans of blood and tears. But it has paid us, though we have sacrificed many of our people. Protocol No. 2

"And it was said by the prophets that we were chosen by God Himself to rule over the whole earth...

"All the wheels of the machinery of all States go by the force of the engine which is in our hands, and that engine of the machinery of States is -- Gold. The science of political economy invented by our learned elders has for long past been giving royal prestige to capital." Protocol No. 5

I stopped to write this preface when the realization of our awful predicament suddenly became more clear while putting the final touches to the section on the Talmudic and Noahide Laws - the former allegedly applying to Jews, the latter to all non-Jews.

In fact, as we shall discover, Talmudic Law is being implemented today in the U.S., recognized even into the U.S. Supreme Court, and in all nations which are 'harmonizing' their laws to fit the International scheme. It is the basis of International Law.

The Noahide Laws, at first glance, innocently appear to be a takeoff on the Ten Commandments. Their defining feature though, is the fact that among the Seven is one which is not a a 'thou shalt not' but one which commands that courts be established to punish those guilty of breaking one of the other Six. The punishment is death and the method of execution is decapitation.

Jehovah, the giver of both the Talmudic and Noahide Laws is not our Heavenly Father/Creator. Jehovah is the god of ZION; a symbolic Satanic force which drives the plan and its unGodly, evil intentions.

We shall also discover that the many secret societies have their roots from the same source. In their turn, Freemasons, Templars, Illuminists, Jesuits, Jews, etc. have been blamed for the endless string of calamities which befoul this world, when in fact an Ancient International Priesthood controls all from its secret abiding places - perhaps from the bowels of the earth.

Members in the lower orders of the secret societies have a specific role to play, according to Albert Pike:

"The Blue Degrees are but the outer court or portico of the Temple.

"Part of the symbols are displayed there to the Initiate, but he is intentionally misled by false interpretations. It is not intended that he shall understand them, but it is intended that he shall IMAGINE he understand them.

"Their true explication is reserved for the Adepts, the Princes of Masonry.

". . . The symbols of the wise are the Idols of the vulgar, or else as meaningless as the hieroglyphics of Egypt to the nomadic Arabs. There must always be a common-place interpretation for the mass of Initiates, of the symbols that are eloquent to the Adepts.

". . . The Templars were unintelligent and therefore unsuccessful Jesuits." p. 819 - Morals and Dogma

This next statement is attributed to Manly P Hall. Although we were unable to confirm Hall as its source, the utterance is worthy of quoting:

"Masonry does not represent the path to truth, it is a path of finding always darkness deeper than before."

The Protocols address what they call 'show' masonry, for the Goy cattle, who will help the planners by betraying their fellow man in exchange for prestige and power. In the end, when they have been used up, they too will be eliminated.

"It is this which has served as the basis for our organization of secret masonry which is not known to, and aims which are not even so much as suspected by, these Goy cattle, attracted by us into the show army of Masonic Lodges in order to throw dust in the eyes of their fellows." Protocol No. 11

How does this relate to the Persecution of the Jews? We shall discover that Jewish Persecution has always been orchestrated -- though not necessarily implemented -- by the Priesthood and its minions; that Jewish Persecution has played a critical role in the successful implementation, to this point, of the plan for World Dominion; and that the sufferers of Jewish Persecution, the 'lesser brethren', are born and bred to suffer.

"Nowadays if any States raise a protest against us it is only pro forma at our discretion and by our direction, for their anti-Semitism is indispensable to us for the management of our lesser brethren." Protocol No. 9 (emphasis added)

Because of the orchestrated and often false claims of Jewish Persecution and anti-Semitism, hate crime laws have been passed in many countries which forbid the mere discussion of the Jewish Question. At the mere mention of the 'J' word, cries of anti-Semitism ring out so those who would reveal the truth of the evils of Zionism are castigated and/or imprisoned.

Without Jewish Persecution in this final phase of the last 3,000 years the plan could not have succeeded to its present point because, according to their own words: without hatred, divisiveness, racial discontent and all which that implies, there would surely be TRUE PEACE AMONG MEN AND AMONG THE NATIONS OF THE WORLD. In our heart of hearts we all know that:

WAR IS NOT PEACE

FREEDOM IS NOT SLAVERY

IGNORANCE IS NOT INTELLIGENCE

The Jews have hotly denied the Protocols, claiming they are a forgery. So do Christians who haven't read and researched the issue. I was recently asked by a Judeo-Christian friend: "Why are you still quoting from this piece of fraudulent trash?"

The following comments from Henry Ford's Dearborn Independent of July 1920 put them in the same perspective as Mr. Reed who we quoted at the beginning:

"When you see how closely the Jews are united by various organizations in the United States, and when you see how with practiced hand they bring those organizations to bear as if with tried confidence in their pressure, it is at least not inconceivable that what can be done within a country -- can be done, or has been done between all the countries where the Jews live.

"At any rate, in the American Hebrew of June 25, 1920, Herman Bernstein writes thus:

'About a year ago a representative of the Department of Justice submitted to me a copy of the manuscript of 'The Jewish Peril' by Professor Nilus, and asked for my opinion of the work. He said that the manuscript was a translation of a Russian book published in 1905 which was later suppressed.

'The manuscript was supposed to contain 'protocols' of the Wise Men of Zion and was supposed to have been read by Dr. Herzl at a secret conference of the Zionist Congress at Basle.

' He expressed the opinion that the work was probably that of Dr. Theodor Herzl... He said that some American Senators who had seen the manuscript were amazed to find that so many years ago a scheme had been elaborated by the Jews which is now being carried out, and that Bolshevism had been planned years ago by Jews who sought to destroy the world'.

"This quotation is made merely to put on record the fact that it was a representative of the Department of Justice of the United States Government, who introduced this document to Mr. Bernstein, and expressed a certain opinion upon it, namely, 'that the work was probably that of Dr. Theodor Herzl'. Also that 'some American Senators' were amazed to note the comparison between what a publication of the year 1905 proposed and what the year 1920 revealed.

"The incident is all the more preoccupying because it occurred by action of the representative of a government who today is very largely in the hands of, or under the influence of, Jewish interests. It is more than probable that as soon as the activity became known, the investigation was stopped.

"A copy of the Protocols was deposited in the British Museum and bears on it the stamp of that institution, 'August 10, 1906'.

"The document was published in England recently under auspices that challenged attention for it, in spite of the unfortunate title under which it appeared. Eyre and Spotiswoode are the appointed printers to the British Government, and it was they who brought out the pamphlet. It was as if the Government Printing Office at Washington should issue them in this country. While there was the usual outcry by the Jewish press, the London Times in a review pronounced all the Jewish counter-attacks as 'unsatisfactory'.

". . . The interest of the Protocols at this time is their bearing on the questions: Have the Jews an organized world system? What is its policy? How is it being worked?

"The Protocols are a World Program -- there is no doubt anywhere of that. Whose program, is stated within the articles themselves. But as for outer confirmation, which would be the more valuable -- a signature, or six signatures, or twenty signatures, or a 25-year unbroken line of effort fulfilling that program?

"The point of interest for this and other countries is not that a 'criminal or a madman' conceived such a program, but that, when conceived, this program found means of getting itself fulfilled in its most important particulars. The document is comparatively unimportant; the conditions to which it calls attention are of a very high degree of importance." --- Dearborn Independent - Issue of July 10, 1920.

The reader will be better able to form an opinion of the efficacy of the Protocols as they appear hereunder, interspersed with the relating of history as it occurred.

This work is offered with deep and abiding love for our Heavenly Father/ Creator, in Which we live and breath and have our being; for our fellow man; and with a burning desire for truth and understanding. It is offered with my prayer that we will all be freed of the illusion into which we were born and that we will remain free to seek the truth, which as Jesus promised, will make us free. I believe that IS the single thread we seek.
