Quote of the Week: Winston Churchill on the Jewish People

Illustrated Sunday Herald, February 8, 1920. Page 5.
ZIONISM versus BOLSHEVISM.
A STRUGGLE FOR THE SOUL OF THE JEWISH PEOPLE.
By the Rt. Hon. WINSTON S. CHURCHILL.

“Some people like Jews and some do not; but no thoughtful man can doubt the fact that they are beyond all question the most formidable and the most remarkable race which has ever appeared in the world.

Disraeli, the Jew Prime Minister of England, and Leader of the Conservative Party, who was always true to his race and proud of his origin, said on a well-known occasion:


“The Lord deals with the nations as the nations deal with the Jews.”

 

Certainly when we look at the miserable state of Russia, where of all countries in the world the Jews were the most cruelly treated, and contrast it with the fortunes of our own country, which seems to have been so providentially preserved amid the awful perils of these times, we must admit that nothing that has since happened in the history of the world has falsified the truth of Disraeli’s confident assertion.”


Note: Actually a ban was placed on Jews in England, I believe around 1250 AD, and this ban was removed by the Puritans under Oliver Cromwell in the 16th Century. The English may have treated the Jewish people better than most European countries, but they were far from perfect.
