Indicts New Testament
as Primary Cause of Anti-Semitism

In his timely study of anti-

merous other occasions, that
the venom against Jews by
founders of Christianity was
the primary cause of the bi-
gotry that has humiliated
Jews throughout the world.
In his indictment of the
New Testament teachings,
Dr. Runes declares:
"The Jews then as now be-
lieve in one God and Him
alone and saw in the Chris-
tian theology nothing more
than Hellenistic idolatry.
"The Jews would not sub-
mit to Roman paganism.
They fought it and, as at
Massada in 136, they would
rather die than serve • false
and alien idols.
"For hundreds of years the
Roman Christian Church has

published and distributed mil-
lions of Bibles, catechisms,
and tracts in Latin, Greek
and countless other lan-
guages—none in Hebrew—
fixing the guilt for Jeshu's
misery upon the shoulders
of the Jews, and so even to-
day from the center of the
Christian Mother Church, the
Roman Catholic hierarchy.
"Jesus appears in the new
Christian Bible as a man
listened to by all the gentiles
of the world—and persecuted
only by the Jews.
"The 'Jesus' of the New
Testament appears to rec-
ognize only two kinds of peo-
ple, the gentiles and the mon-
stripis Jews. And so we hear
Tesus, son of the Jew Joseph,
in the Roman New Testa-
ment speak thus to the Jews:
You are offspring of your fa-
ther, the Devil. He was a
murderer from the beginning.
He is •a liar and the father
of all- deceit.
"Do these lines not' have
the ring of Hitler or Torque-
m a da?
"The New Testament is the
most vicious anti-Semitic
play in history, surpassing
Mein Kampf or the Protocols
of Zion. .
"Of all the anti-Semitic
writing the New Testament
has been most effective, be-
cause it is reiterated as Holy
writ from cradle to grave.
The Christian churches poi-
son the minds ofz their young
and old every Sundav—in-
deed, every day — with the
`calumnies' of the JeWs. The
more devout a Christian, the
more he or she gets the mes-
sage. Every Christian child
and adult is told of Jesus, the
father image, and how the
devilish Jews betrayed him,
and finally had the Romans
crucify him—indeed. when
Jesus was already dying on
the Cross, the slavering Jews
demand that his bones be
"There is not an iota of
truth to the story; it is not
even a legend, but a devilish
power play by the . Imperial
Roman church:
All anti-Semitism basical-
ly stems from the New Tes-
tament and cannot be eradi-
cated until the Christian Bi-
ble is cleansed of the mal-
evolent propaganda that
darkens its pages."
Related causes of the
spread of bigotry and the
imposition of sufferings upon
the Jews mark many of the
analytical evidences includ-
ed in the Runes studies.
As the theme of his new
book asserts, the call is for
an end to prejudices and an
erasing of the libels leveled
at Jewry. The "Let My Peo-
nle Live!" theme is especial-
ly relevant to a situation in-
volving those who would de- .
strov the redeemed homeland
which is the inheritance of
Jewry from ancient times.
Dr. Runes not only makes
an excellent case in his in-
dictment, and an impressive
call for action in destroying
the poisons of anti-Semitism,
but also in creating interest
in the historic developments
that have blocked Jewry's
road to a just role in the
world. In numerous brief es-
says, some less than a page
in length, Dr. Runes estab-
lishes methods for further
study of the subject.

Breshnev "now can coddle
U.S. fancies and still cater
to our peace-mongering in-
stincts and budgetary pinch,
or get tough in the Middle
East." He continues:
"Whatever happens, Mos-
cow has a key position, simi-
lar to that once claimed by
Washington. ∎It can swing
either way. Russia has
reached a military ascend-
ancy which enables it to ne-
gotiate from strength ; as it
used to complain we did. The
critical test will be on Israel.
"Mr. Kissinger made the-
mistake of trying to squeeze
the USSR out of the game
of arranging an Arab-Israeli
solution but, after a period.
of apparent success, he has
seemingly lost that attempt.
The Kremlin can now permit
a new conflict to explode in
the Palestine area and is
busily sending the Arabs eve _ n
more arms than the U.S. is
sending Israel.
"Or Moscow can limit such
a conflict, after it has been
ignited. Finally, Russia can
force Washington to admit
the USSR has a cardinal
role in peace negotiations.
We will know the answer on
this long, long before we
know whether the promised
nuclear arms limitation
means much in checking the
race to holocaust."
