Holocaust Survivor: Museum shooter akin to suicide bomber

That’s the title of a CNN article about the shooting at the U.S. Holocaust Museum by an alleged Neo-Nazi, James von Brunn.  Sel Hubert, 83, of Rye, New York, who was in the Holocaust Museum at the time of the shooting, had this to say about the incident:

“By doing this, he [James von Brunn] gives worldwide notoriety to himself and his ideals of hatred,” said Hubert, who at 13 escaped Germany on a transport to England just weeks before World War II erupted. “He chooses martyrdom to glorify his hatred, similar to a suicide bomber.”

That sounds nice, but there are a few problems with the above quote, not the least of which is the status of Mr. Sel Hubert himself.  The title of the article describes Mr. Hubert as a “Holocaust Survivor,” but there’s one little problem with that classification. As noted in the above quote from the CNN article, Mr. Hubert escaped Germany on a transport to England just weeks before World War II erupted. So just exactly how does that qualify him as a Holocaust Survivor?

Which brings up an issue that is tangential to this essay, but one that needs to be clarified at some point. Just exactly what makes one a Holocaust Survivor anyway? Can gentiles who survived Hitler’s concentration camps also wear that moniker? If so, do they also collect checks from the German government provided largely by German taxpayers who weren’t alive at the time of the War? Or is the title “Holocaust Survivor” conferred solely upon Jews who happened to be alive anywhere on the planet between 1938 and 1945?  I’m just askin’.

Seriously, I’m glad Mr. Hubert escaped the Holocaust, since he was clearly safely esconced in England during the War; but unfortunately, he seems to be completely tone deaf when it comes to sensing irony in his own words. Comparing Neo-Nazi James von Brunn with a Palestinian suicide bomber is a mixed metaphor at best, and at worst, a cynical attempt to exploit this tragedy to protect Israel from criticism. A Neo-Nazi cannot possibly be compared with a Palestinian suicide bomber, because the Nazis were the perpetrators of human rights abuses against Jews in Europe – but Zionist Jews are the perpetrators of human rights abuses against Palestinians in Israel. In other words, those who were once real victims of Nazi brutality have turned Nazi on the Palestinians, but they somehow fail to notice the hypocrisy.

This is not to justify Palestinians blowing themselves up and taking out innocent Israelis eating in pizza parlors in downtown Tel Aviv. I abhor and reject violence as a solution to anything, and encourage all victims of oppression to use peaceful, non-violent means of resistance (a la Martin Luther King and Ghandi). Because in resorting to violence you lose the moral highground. Not to mention give the Zionist-controlled media the opportunity to exploit Israeli tragedy while ignoring the many thousands of Palestinians the Israelis have killed over the years. Violence is not the answer.

Nevertheless. If a few Palestinians have gone nuts over the years, feeling totally hopeless and overwhelmed, and decided they have nothing to lose by blowing themselves up, then maybe we should ask ourselves what could drive a person to such an extreme. After all, suicide is the most unnatural of human behaviors, since survival is the strongest of all human instincts. So things must be pretty darned bad for young Palestinians to think suicide is their only option for justice. And what drove Jewish victims of Nazi injustice to revolt in the Warsaw Uprising? The same thing. That stinging sense of injustice of being deprived of their human rights and liberty and placed in concentration camps by the Nazis. Kind of like how the Palestinians were driven off their land in 1948 and placed in concentration camps by the Zionists. Mr. Hubert, the honorary Holocaust Survivor, obviously fails to see the hypocrisy of his own words. The only reason there are Palestinian suicide bombers in the first place is because of the injustices perpetrated against them by Israelis.

Unfortunately, Mr. Hubert is not the only “Holocaust Survivor” quoted in the article who seems to lack a sense of irony. Another person quoted in the article, apparently a “real” Holocaust Survivor, had this to say to CNN:

Blumberg, whose father was killed by the Nazis and who spent about a year at Majdanek concentratioan camp in Poland in 1942,  was scheduled to speak Sunday at the Jewish Community Center of Greater Washington, but is now having second thoughts … Anytime a group asks Blumberg to speak about the Holocaust, she obliges, she said, out of a sense of duty to educate people so that the atrocities perpetrated by Nazi Germany are never repeated.”

Another one, completely tone deaf to the irony of her own words. If the atrocities committed by the Nazis should never be repeated (and they shouldn’t), then what does she have to say about the atrocities committed by Zionist Jews against the Palestinians? Did she speak out in January against the atrocities committed in Gaza which killed 1,400 people, mostly women and children? Did she speak out against the use of white phosphorus on the Palestinians which is a documented war crime? Or maybe she’s not so tone deaf after all, and she meant her words quite literally. That the atrocities perpetrated by Nazi Germany can never be repeated, but that Zionist Jews are held to no such standard. Are they missing some component of the brain that appreciates and detects irony and abstraction? Or do they just straight-up mean exactly what they say? That no one will ever mess with the Jews again, but that Jews can mess with whomever they want. Because that’s the way it’s starting to look from the peanut gallery. And it must look like that to the Palestinians. 

This is about the time that non-Zionist, anti-war Jews need to have a conversation with their elders – respectfully and gently – but a heart-to-heart talk nonetheless. Because I know that many Jewish Americans do not support their co-religionists’ behavior in Israel. And that was most evident this past January when they were at the forefront of protests against Israeli atrocities in Gaza. I still remember with shame that American Christians were largely silent while Jewish women were getting arrested for locking themselves in the Israeli consulate in Montreal, and protesting in the streets of New York. And I hope these same liberal American Jews will speak out here on the homefront too, because it appears their elders now have our civil liberties in their crosshairs. Check out this chilling quote from Ms. Blumberg:

“Hitler’s Germany, they had freedom of speech and look what happened,” Blumberg said. “Freedom of speech has to be controlled.”

Again, I’m simply stunned by the complete lack of any sense of irony in these words. Could it simply be old age catching up with them, or is there some type of PTSD effect that makes them almost autistic when it comes to abstraction? HELLO! If freedom of speech is “controlled” then it’s not freedom of speech! And it’s not just Ms. Blumberg taking aim at the First Amendment, honorary Holocaust Survivor, Mr. Hubert, chimes in against the Internet:

Added Hubert, “it’s the uncontrolled internet which provides the tools and means for this scourge to spread, and it’s a very dangerous thing that’s happening.”

With all due respect to Mr. Hubert and Ms. Blumberg, the truth spreading freely is only a dangerous thing for those who have something to hide. Like the fact that people are in prison in Europe (and coming soon to a FEMA camp near you) for questioning the number 6 million. And now they want to take away the Internet. I guess the two really do have to go hand in hand, because it’s largely due to the Internet that people have figured out that the number 6 million is dubious, as even the Auschwitz museum attests. Does the ACLU only protect free speech when it comes to porn on TV and homosexual indoctrination for kindergartners? Or are they really fighting for our civil liberties? Guess we’re all about to find out.

Because one thing’s for certain from this incident and many others like it: that our elite controllers are working day and night to figure out a way to subvert the Constitution to keep us serfs under wraps. Specifically, with regard to the First and Second amendments. And this incident is a perfect way to kill two birds with one stone, since it renews calls to take away our guns, as well as freedom of speech, including access to the Internet. Because they obviously fear that if we ever find out that we’ve been lied to, we just might take up arms against them, and it’s 1938 all over again. For the millionth time. And that’s what this is really all about, regardless of who this von Brunn character is, or what he stands for, or how repugnant he may be.

Assuming this was not a false flag operation, and right now I’m not sure what to make of it, the fact that this guy went after the Holocaust Museum has got to have our elites shaking in their boots. How dare those chattel question their new religion, or the fact that their tax dollars pay for this thing, when there’s no museum for the gentiles who died in World War II. And why is this thing even on U.S. soil in the first place? Weren’t we the ones who liberated those concentration camps at the cost of thousands of American lives? Shouldn’t the museum be dedicated to Americans who saved Jewish lives and how great our country is that we took them in? Instead, we now have Holocaust Survivors kvetching that our Constitution offends them, and that we shouldn’t get all uppity about freedom of speech.

Sorry, but it’s just not going to work this time. Americans are now officially coming down with Holocaust burn-out, nutjob von Brunn and his crime notwithstanding. Yes, what happened to Jews during World War II was an atrocity, whether 6 or 6 million, and it should never be allowed to happen again. To anybody. And that includes the Palestinians, who for 60 years have had to pay the price for Nazi crimes, when they had nothing whatsoever to do with Nazi crimes. Just like we Americans had nothing to do with Nazi crimes, except for the fact that we paid in blood and treasure to stop them, yet that still doesn’t seem to be enough. We must now pay with our tax dollars for the U.S. Holocaust Museum which only honors Jewish victims as if only Jews died during World War II. And now we must also pay in blood and treasure for the survivors of Nazi crimes to act like Nazis themselves and dispossess an innocent people of their land, and on and on it goes.

And it will only stop when those who love peace and freedom demand that the Palestinians finally get justice and that we no longer finance their oppressors. And we must let it be known that our Constitution is not going to be subverted just because a group of former victims doesn’t feel safe with the rabble having freedom of speech. Sorry, but they’re not the only people who ever experienced injustice, and they’re never going to feel safe until they stop victimizing other people. Truth hurts, but it needs to be said, for their good and the good of all the world. I know their motto is “never forgive, never forget,” but maybe it’s time to let go. Don’t forget – but try forgiveness. It’s cheaper and it feels a whole lot better. Peace.

  1. > what makes one a Holocaust Survivor anyway?

    ===========================
    http://www.allbusiness.com/middle-east/israel/172682-1.html

    “Who is a Holocaust survivor was answered rather eloquently by Benjamin Meed, president of the American Gathering of Jewish Holocaust Survivors–a Warsaw Ghetto survivor–in an incident he related some years ago. Meed travels the New York to Washington shuttle weekly in his dual role as AMG president (New York) and as a member of the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Council (Washington).

    On one of the flights he happened to sit next to former Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger. They, of course, struck up a conversation. At one point, Meed stated to Kissinger, “You are a Holocaust survivor.”

    Kissinger seemed surprised at Meed’s statement and reminded him that he fled Germany to the United States in the 1930s. Meed’s response was to ask a question. “If you had remained in Germany what would have happened to you?” Kissinger responded, “I surely would have died.” Meed concluded, “Then you are a Holocaust survivor.” Kissinger thought for a moment and responded, “Yes, I am a Holocaust survivor.”
    ===========================

    So yes, every Jew who thinks that he would have died had he remained in Germany, is Holocaust Survivor.

    “Thinks” is important because Kissinger is obviously wrong: numerous Jews were liberated from the death camps by Allies after years spent in those death camps; according to numerous sources (http://www.stormfront.org/forum/showthread.php?t=568596 ), in fact the population of Jews practically has not changed during WW2.

    Speaking of the benefits due to Survivors, the term also includes the children and grandchildren of Holocaust Survivors, so called “second generation survivors” – see for example http://judaism.about.com/od/holocaust/a/hol_gens.htm : “Evidence shows that the children of Holocaust survivors, referred to as the “Second Generation”, can be deeply affected – both negatively and positively — by the horrific events their parents experienced. The intergenerational transmission of trauma is so strong that Holocaust-related influences can even be seen in the “Third Generation”, children of the children of survivors.”

    So in general, it’s not a terrible stretch to say that Holocaust Survivors are practically all Jews.

  2. There was no dang “Holocaust” – it was a massive criminal fraud by Zionists, to get future reparations (yes, they were thinking of the reparations money already during the war, according to Nahum Goldmann’s memoirs – according to him it was he and Chaim Weizmann – who was, coincidentally, later to be 1st president of Israel – who thought up both the reparations and the postwar “war crimes” trials (actually Stalinist-style show trials, but they served to provide legitimacy to claims of genocide that had no supporting evidence except forged documents, lying testimony and “confessions” extorted by torture)

    If you’re curious to check out for yourself (as more and more people are doing) what could possibly induce someone to “deny” the big H, an easy way is to go to my “True History” blog at http://historicalexactitude.blogspot.com and click on some of the links there.

  3. Great great article.

  4. How can one be a survivor of something that never happened? Am I a Santa Claus survivor?

  5. Of course there was a holocaust. There have been many holocausts throughout history, and the one that zionists believe entitles them to permanent victimhood and endless reparations wasn’t the worst. And at least as many non-Jews as Jews died in that holocaust so it’s hardly an excuse for hundreds – probably thousands – of “holocaust” museums to be erected all over the world. Probably hundreds in the US alone – funded by US taxpayers.

    The point is that one would think people who have suffered so much injustice would not be the ones to inflict a holocaust on innocent people who had nothing at all to do with Jewish suffering. Zionists are the nazis of today. Israel is an illegal entity which can never be a democracy so long as it claims it is a “Jewish” state. Imagine if we called the US a “Christian” country, or any of our states “Christian” or “Jewish” or “Baptist” or “Mormom.”

    Israel will self-destruct, and one can only hope it will be soon. The first thing we need to do is stop handing over billions of US tax money every year.

    Long live Palestine. Free Gaza.

  6. This is America not israel and if you are against “Free Speech” you are the enemy of my country and if you don’t like our constitution get the hell out, go to israel and take the rest of your jew anti- Americans with you including Rahm Emanual and the the other zionist freaks that have infiltrated America’s government and are hard at work trying to destroy us from with in.

    “A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and he carries his banners openly. But the traitor moves among those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not traitor, he speaks in the accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their garments, and he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of a city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murderer is less to be feared.” Cicero, 42 B.C.

  7. As this article reveals- any one expecting common sense and/or logic and reasoning from Jews – or other holohoax believers – is delusional.
    RG

  8. It says in the article:
    “Yes, what happened to Jews during World War II was an atrocity, whether 6 or 6 million, and it should never be allowed to happen again. To anybody. ”
    It started off as a locking up of the state’s self-declared enemies (24. March 1933 – Judea declares war on Germany – Jews of all the world unite in action).
    The same locking up of state enemies was practised by the Allies, (of USA and Australia I directly know of). Except these states were not at the end of a losing war. Their supply lines didn’t get bombed, so that hardly any food or medical supplies could reach the camps. So who was actually responsible for all the malnutrition and hunger the victims the German camp inmates died from? We all have been fed with the death pictures of these bone-thin poor creatures. It just got out of control, thanks to the real “Holocaust”-causers (Dresden, Hamburg, Berlin, in fact every large city of the Reich).
    So let these bombings of civilians in particular not happen again.
    But as Stalin has said:
    Victors do not have to answer to anybody at court.

  9. While we are ‘airing the truth’ – lets get it ALL out in the open! I am of Italian decent. What if ALL Italian-Americans suddenly stated that the were going to unilaterally ‘DECLARE WAR AGAINST THE US’? Can you imagine the anger – howls and outcry from ALL the rest of loyal Christian America? ‘My fellow Tallies’ would have been safer in prison that subjected to angry street mobs for our duplicity – AND RIGHTLY SO!

    Hell – we threw countless thousands of loyal American Japanese citizens into prison compounds at the out break of the Pacific war. Did these people declare war against America? Hell no! Were these people immoral scumbags who were trying to turn American into a rotted moral corpse? (like the Jew HAS done to us today) Hell NO! Had these American citizens of Japanese ethnicity stolen jobs – lowered the moral fibre of America with their sordid filthy lifestyles? – HELL NO! Have People of Japanese descent EVER inhistory been kicked our of entire nations OVER *) TIMES -for being cheating lying stealing criminal gangsters? HELL NO!

    I’m sick to death about hearing whining about the poor jews. The DAMNED jews were treasonous criminal bastards – PERIOD! There were in prisons because of their treason and unthinkable conduct as they sucked the life blood out of the working German people. Just ask German citizens who survived WWII if that was not the ABSOLUTE TRUTH ABOUT THE JEWS!

    As for the so called suicide bombers – I consider these people to be some of the bravest most selfless people on earth. What the hell do couch potatoe AmeriKans know about the human misery anguish desparation -helplessness and hopelessness that WE HAVE CAUSED? As for their targets let me educate you. I have been there. These brave patriots GAVE THEIR OWN LIVES so that just perhaps a child might live with a few less IDF sadistic monsters able to murder children as i have witnessed.

    They PURPOSEFULLY targeted Busses and coffee shops. Know why? of course not unless you had spent time there on the streets. The coffe shops were ALWAYS filled with IDF. Busses were free for ALL military and so were also ALWAYS loaded with IDF thugs.

    I am SICK to DEATH of the double standards and hypocricies. An American soldier patriot sacrafices his life for his own and we shower him with accalades ( as we should)- ” greater love no man hath than when he lay down blah blah blah” BUT – if a ‘RAGHEAD’ or ‘SANDNIGGER’ who has no weapons with which to fight back or even defend his family – makes a similar sacrafice for his people – all we can do is mock him OR HER as a lunatic madman radical demonic etc etc. That kind of crap makes me want to pitch my cookies!

    Will we ever stop being appologists for the damn filthy sadistic murdering Jews? Maybe a LOT of us need to witness a laughingJew blow the head off a helpless 5 year old terrified orphan child – and then return as a hero to virtually ALL of IsraHELL!

    In all the time I was there – I NEVER EVER saw OR EVEN HEARD of EVEN ONE ISRAHELL JEW defend ONE poor tormented Palestinain Christian or Muslim old man or woman.

    You made some good points – but PLEASE STOP the ‘free passes’ and the Good Jew bad Jew bullshit. IsraHELL is an EVIL EVIL Place with near universally SUPER EVIL PEOPLE – PERIOD!

    “Forgiveness” is for the VICTIMS of the crimes to decide – NOT The perpetrators of the injustices. You ned to get your realities straight. Spend time in Israhell – AWAY FROM TOURISTS – then come talk to me about who needs to forgive who!

    JC

    Hi Joe. It’s nice to hear from you and I always appreciate your comments and insights. But forgiveness is what we’re called to do as Christians, and I, for one, cannot live anymore in a constant state of bitterness and hatred. Forgiveness does not give anyone a free pass, any more than we get a “free pass” when we are forgiven our sins by Jesus. Forgiveness does not preclude justice. Forgive us our trespasses as we forgive those who trespass against us….

  10. Mark, Your article not only makes the truth even more important all who have survived Murder , should not be forgotten. I am not a Jew, I also am not a Jew hater but I do hate the JEWS that murdered my shipmates aboard USS Liberty June 8 1967 just the way it is.
    Murder is Murder the guilty ones should be held in jail for their crimes and let a jury decide their fate.
    The LIBERTY survivors want justice just as bad as any victim but that will never happen for the Liberty crew.
    What the ADL wants, what the AIPAC wants, so goes America. God help us, only he can bring us back from the darkness of EVIL.
    Phil

    Phil, Mark Glenn is not the author of this article, although I am flattered that you thought it was. Mark is a good friend of mine though, and you and I have spoken on the phone through a 3-way call with Mark in the past! J.

  11. Well leave it to me I made a mistake, but I sure did not make a mistake on this fine article. May the Author please forgive me. Also kudos to you and Mark in any event you are HEROS in my mind and many others no doubt!!
    Blessings
    Phillip Tourney USS Liberty Survivor

    Au Contraire, my friend! YOU ARE THE HERO! And I’m sure Mark joins me in saying that. As an American patriot and USS LIBERTY survivor, you are doing all you can to inform the American public about this atrocity, and bringing honor to your shipmates’ memories. You deserve a Medal of Honor and if I were president, you’d have one! J.

  12. Hi Phil,

    Nice to read your comments about the USS LIBERTY. You may remember I tossed roses from the deck of the FREE GAZA into the Mediterranean to commemorate your shipmates who were murdered by Israel off the coast of Gaza. Our two boats, LIBERTY and FREE GAZA, were the first boats to land at the Port of Gaza in 41 years.

    In December the Israeli Navy rammed and destroyed our boat DIGNITY in international waters. It is now at the bottom of the Mediterranean. And in the middle of the bloodbath in January, IDF gunboats stopped our SPIRIT OF HUMANITY and threatened to sink us if we didn’t return to Cyprus. If it had just been us we would have refused, but we were transporting surgeons and emergency room doctors, and a cargo of medical supplies so we turned back rather than risk their lives.

    Next week we will sail our two boats back to Gaza, and I will be on board. If the IDF stops us we will refuse to turn back.

    Like you I don’t hate Jews. I just hate the ones who murder innocents like those who slaughtered hundreds of children in Gaza recently. And I don’t deny the holocaust, though I am tired of zionists using it to excuse Israel’s crimes. Millions died, and a good number of them were Jews. As Norman Finkelstein says, it has become an industry for zionists. And I agree with those who object to our government pouring hundreds of millions into building “holocaust” museums all over the US.

  13. We were involved with the Nazi crimes by way of financing Hitler through the Fed and Brown Brothers Harriman(as also was the Bank of England). Major player at Harriman was one Prescott BUSH, father of GW Bush. Prescott had 23 companies he was associated with, confiscasted under the “Trading With The Enemy Act) in 1942. Who is more guilty, the perpetrators or those that finance them? There are huge political and financial profits in war.

  14. Ms. Blumberg:

    “Hitler’s Germany, they had freedom of speech and look what happened,” Blumberg said. “Freedom of speech has to be controlled.”

    Again, I’m simply stunned by the complete lack of any sense of irony in these words.

    There is no sense of irony in this. Jews are quite consistent in accusing others of what they are most guilty. One might call this the “reverse lie.” If you examine history carefully, a huge number of the lies told about the fabled Holocaust and the Nazi were actually carried out by the Jewish communist. The Jews invented these ideas and then they applied them to their perceived enemies. One of the more classic examples is the idea of the lie itself. The jews have long promoted the myth that the Nazis created the concept of the “big lie.” Yet anyone who has read Mien Kamp knows that Hitler squarely laid the idea of the “big lie” on the Jews and this was in 1922, long before Hitler was leading Nazi Germany. The jews depend on the fact that few will ever go the distance to uncover their lies.

    Another glaring example of the reverse lie is the myth of “Nazi gun laws,” if one reads the actual laws of Nazi Germany one will find the citizen could own weapons. Only pistols had to be registered with the Gestapo In fact it was a major fear among the allies after the war that the German people would rise up and use their personal arms against the troops. This was why it was actually the allied troops that first disarmed the German populace. Yet the Jewish communist immediately disarmed the Russian populace to make sure the Russian people could never rise against them. Is it any wonder that that the Jewish leadership of America is likewise working steadily to implement the same type of gun laws their communist brethren forced upon the Russian people?

    The there was the Katyn forest massacre where the Jewish communist murdered the Polish leadership and then brazenly tried blaming it on the Nazis. The Holocaust stories are likewise filled with such examples. The camps of the Jewish communist’s Gulag system were in fact a system of death camps. The jewish communist did in fact murder millions of indigenous Russians in these camps through starvation and execution. The gassing trucks supposedly used by the Nazis are now admitted lies, yet the Jewish communist did have such vehicles. While the jews holocaust “survivors” laughably claimed the Nazi used diesel trucks, the Jewish communist used very efficient gasoline vehicles for their murderous activities.

    What about the stories about the cattle cars where it was claimed jews suffocated on their way to the German camps? Such stories are obviously false because cattle cars are slatted for the very reason that cattle must breath. Yet the Jewish communist actually did use cattle cars and Russian prisoners froze to death in these cars because there was plenty of harsh Russian winter air to breath. The list goes on and on, the Germans never incinerated masses of bodies, yet they did cremate the remains of many typhus victims in the camps. Ironically, cremation is the preferred method used by jews for disposing of their human remains.

    Yet a real holocaust did happen during WWII. It happened when the jew’s allied military proxy carried out the intentional incineration of German cities like Dresden and Hamburg where people melted into the pavement from the intense heat. If one spends time watching the Jewish slasher movies that flow copiously from their Hollywood studios, or read their murder mysteries or their horror fiction, one can quite literally see the Jewish mind at work. One can see the truly twisted, ugly horrors that reside deep in the jewish souls throughout these readily available sources. One can only shudder in the realization that these people spend their time and imagination on such thought and then work to turn them into reality – whether it be horror movies or jewish communist death camp systems.

  15. I have seen a transcript from CNN where an eye-witness states that she saw one museum guard (mossad?) shoot the other. Whether this was a case of friendly fire or was all part of the antisemite “photo op” who can say. The fact is that according to the eyewitness Bruhn never shot the guard, interesting.

  16. In 1492, Chemor, chief Rabbi of Spain, wrote to the Grand Sanhedrin, which had its seat in Constantinople, for advice, when a Spanish law threatened expulsion.2 This was the reply:

    ” Beloved brethren in Moses, we have received your letter in which you tell us of the anxieties and misfortunes which you are enduring. We are pierced by as great pain to hear it as yourselves.

    The advice of the Grand Satraps and Rabbis is the following:

    1. As for what you say that the King of Spain obliges you to become Christians: do it, since you cannot do otherwise.

    2. As for what you say about the command to despoil you of your property: make your sons merchants that they may despoil, little by little, the Christians of theirs.

    3. As for what you say about making attempts on your lives: make your sons doctors and apothecaries, that they may take away Christians’ lives.

    4. As for what you say of their destroying your synagogues: make your sons canons and clerics in order that they may destroy their churches. [Emphasis mine]

    5. As for the many other vexations you complain of: arrange that your sons become advocates and lawyers, and see that they always mix in affairs of State, that by putting Christians under your yoke you may dominate the world and be avenged on them.

    6. Do not swerve from this order that we give you, because you will find by experience that, humiliated as you are, you will reach the actuality of power.

    (Signed) PRINCE OF THE JEWS OF CONSTANTINOPLE.”

    2. The reply is found in the sixteenth century Spanish book, La Silva Curiosa, by Julio-Iniguez de Medrano (Paris, Orry, 1608), on pages 156 and 157, with the following explanation: “This letter following was found in the archives of Toledo by the Hermit of Salamanca, (while) searching the ancient records of the kingdoms of Spain; and, as it is expressive and remarkable, I wish to write it here.” — vide, photostat facing page 80.
