Editor, The Jewish News:
Paul Serant, in his book "Le
Romantisme Fasciste" (Fasquelle,
1959), sheds a new light upon the
phenomenon of French anti-Semi-
Anti-Semitism and racism were
not central to French fascism until
rather late in the day, writes Paul
Serant. It was only in 1936, the
year Blum's Pupular Front gained
a victory at the polls that the fas-
cist press in France made anti-
Semitism a cardinal issue for at
least two reasons, neither of which
had much to do with racial theory.
Blum's Popular Front government,
the major threat to French fascism
at that time, was particularly vul-
nerable to such a campaign, and
the charge could also be made that
it was the Jews in France who,
because of their hatred of Hitler,
were trying to drag France into a
war with Germany.
That this campaign was more
a matter of expedience than con-
viction is seen from the fact that
even after 1936 most spokesmen
for French fascism equivocated
agonizingly on the question of
race, not becoming outright rac-
ists until the German occupation.
It is worthy of notice that Marcel
Deat, one of the stump orators of
French fascism, as late as 1942,
differentiated between the Jew who
was "harmful" to the French com-
munity, and the Jew who fought
and shed his blood for France and
who should be accepted as "an
honorable and honored ally."
The French fascist group around
the newspaper Je Suis Partout did
go for anti-Semitism, but one fel-
low wrote in his article that "one
could have good relations with a
'foreign' (sic) people like the

by British Moves in ME
Editor, The Jewish News:
Have read with extreme anx-
iety your article in the Jewish
News that Great Britain stands
accused of pursuing an anti-Israel
policy and of seeking to prejudice
the existing condition to find ways
and means to establish peace be-
tween the Arabs and Israelis.
The Middle East now is not a
British territory and it should be
up to the delegates of the United
Nations to stop Britain's anti-Israel
interference in the Middle East.
I cannot overlook reminding the
British people, the present leaders
of the English Parliament, that
it was the Jew Benjamin Disraeli
who made Great Britain Great. It
was Lord Reading the Jew, who
made the whole world adopt, re-
spect British laws and British jur-
isprudence. It was Herbert Sam-
uels the Jew who made England's
education and school system the
envy of the whole intellectual

many, all of them tried to ex-
terminate Jews, but never suc-
ceeded. They left only a shameful
and disgraceful record in history.
