Full Story of Lord Haw-Haw Reveals
William Joyce's Vile Anti-Semitism

Before William Joyce assumed
the title "Lord Haw-Haw," there
was a predecessor who called him-
self that as he broadcast pro-Hit-
ler talks. But the title stuck to
Joyce and the story of his activi-
ties, of his anti-British and anti-
democratic radio talks, his activi-
ties in behalf of Hitler, are des-
cribed in great detail in "Lord
Haw-Haw and William Joyce," by
J. A. .Cole, a contemporary of the
traitor. The revealing book has
just been issued by Farrar, Straus
and Co.
Joyce's career, which ended on
the gallows, forms one of the most
dramatic stories of the last war.
A native of New York, he had
claimed English citizenship. Cole's
book tells the story of his much-
discussed passport which was a
major issue in Joyce's defense dur-
ing his appeal in the House of
Lords, in the controversies that
preceded his being sentenced to
die for treason. He had become
popular because his broadcasts,
traitorous as they were, contained
information that intrigued his list-
There is no doubt about
Joyce's anti-Semitism. The Cole
story reveals it, and there is an
especially pertinent reference to
his hatred of Jews. The author
of the Lord Haw-Haw story
states that "he was putting an
increasing barrier between him-
self and other politicians by his
developing anti-Semitism. It may
help to make his later utterances
intelligible if I remind the read-
er that anti-Semites are not
simply people who dislike Jews
for their faces, trading practices,
ritual slaughtering technique, or
other characteristics, real or im-
aginary. Although aversion to
Jews is exploited in anti-Semitic
propaganda, anti-Semites do not
merely agitate against Jews as
undesirable citizens, but hold
that they are engaged in a con-
spiracy of world domination, in
which some of them practice as
Wall Street financiers, others as
Communists, and yet others
(whose purnose is to disarm the
victim's races by destroying their
national cultures) as economists,
historians, psychoanalysts, com-
posers of contemporary music
and as non-representational art-
ists. Substitute dollar imperialists
for Jews as the enemy and the
resemblance to the Communist
mentality is close. He could as
a Communist speaker have been
equally facile."
This is an interesting sociolog-
ical-political analysis, but it is
clear that Joyce's chief task was to
propagate Fascism and for a time
his "only hope' was the leader of
the British Fascists, Oswald 11,los-
ley. In reference to Mosley's work
on Fascism, Cole states:
"Beyond a fleeting mention of
the Rothschilds in the section on
finance, there was no reference to
Jews. Deploring this omission,
Joyce determined to push British
Fascism toward anti-Semitism."
Thus his anti-Semitic tendencies
were indisputable.
It is interesting to note in this
connection that in 1932 Mosley
visited Mussolini, seeking a mod-
el for his Fascistic program. Cole
states at this point: "Joyce read
the news of this trip with inter-
est but he thought that all Mos-
ley could usefully study in Italy
was the way to seize power; what
the Italians had done in office
was not to be copied, as they had
failed to introduce the corporate
state they seemed blind to the
Jewish menace. Nothing more
was to be expected of Wops,
Joyce supposed. A rising politic-
ian named Hitler was more to
his taste.



Phone 341-7998

And so Joyce's anti-Semitic be-
ginnings dated back long before
the war: he was the anti-Semite
from the early years as a Fascist
propagandist "For him diplomats
were fops and dandies; noblemen's
sons squandered their inheritances
in night clubs drinking champagne
with actresses and fell into Jewish
money-lenders' clutches
Seeking a seat in the London
City Council, "more than half
Joyce's election address was de-
voted to attacking the Jews and
he intensively canvassed non-Jew-
ish shopkeepers . . ." He heiled
Hitler, commended "the German
Leader's gallant achievements
against international Jewish Com-
munism," constantly spoke about
Jewish moneylenders and interna-
tional finance, advocated that
"Jews, whether Jewish by religion
or not, were to be treated as
Joyce had charged that the Pur-
itans "had drunk all too deeply of
Jewish philosophy." Wherever he
could attack liberals he charged
them with being Jewish-influenced.
His street meetings f o m e n t e d
trouble for Jewish merchants. At
one point he was disturbed at the
sight of a Jew wearing the Yellow
Was he really upset because
"harmless" Jews suffered? Cole
states: "He was not a monster who
wanted to drive living prisoners
to a gas chamber, but a man pos-
sessed by ideas and taken aback
when theory became reality." The
record compiled by Cole certainly
depicts a vile anti-Semite. The "full
story" of this ally of Hitler adds
important data to available facts
about the supporters of Hitler in
democratic countries.

Tel Aviv Named Site
for Annual Parade;
Jordan Fears Quieted

(Direct JTA Teletype Wire to
The Jewish News)

TEL AVIV—Israel's annual In-
dependence Day military parade
will be held in Tel Aviv this year,
it was announced here Wednesday.
Independence Day this year will be
celebrated on May 6. The progress
of Israel's army will be demon-
strated through the parade. 1
Since this year will mark also
the 20th anniversary of the end of
World War II, the parade will also
recall the contributions of the pre-
war and wartime Jewish settle-
ments in Palestine to the Allied
victory in the war against the Nazis
and Fascists. Special emphasis will
be laid on the aid to victory given
by the Jewish units in the Allied
forces, including the Jewish Bri-
(At the Un!ted Nations, Wednes-
day, it was pointed out that this
report belies one issued there
Tuesday by the Jordanian gov-
ernment, which complained to
the Security Council against an
alleged Israeli plan to hold the
Independence Day military pa-
rade in Jerusalem. It was noted
that the Independence Day pa-
rades have been rotated by Israel
in the last few years among var-
ious cities, and that the last
exhibition of Israel's military
might held in Jerusalem was
staged in 1961.
(In a letter from Abdul Monem
Rifai, Jordan's permanent repre-
sentative to the U.N., the Jordan-
ian government asserted that Is-
rael's plans for a military parade
in Jerusalem violate not only the
1949 armistice agreement but also
"defy" a Security Council resolu-
tion of 1961 in which the Council
had requested that no show of mili-
tary might be put on in Jerusalem.
(Rifai noted in his letter that he
had already complained to the Se-
curity Council on this issue last
week. He did not call for a meet-
ing of the Security Council on the
matter but requested only that his
letter be circulated as an official
document. )

The term "Apocrypha" is given
to that literature which although
written in biblical style, is not
accepted by Jewish tradition as
part of the Canon, and thus is not
to be regarded as a part of the
official Bible. The various books
in this literature are referred to
in Hebrew as "S'forim Chitzonim,"
which means the "outside books,"
indicating that they are to be
regarded as outside the Canon and
thus devoid of the sanctified stat-
us of the regular biblical books
that make up the Hebrew Canon-
ical Scriptures. These books are
valued for their historical, their
literary and their comparative
linguistic values. Some have come
to regard the "Apocrypha" as a
group of "secret writings" which
the Greek term itself seems to
imply. These writings were secret,
either because they were ordered
hidden by the authorities who re-
jected them as non-biblical, or
because their students "regarded
them as having certain secret
teachings which not everyone was
allowed to have the privilege of
