Injustice

Hitler's Ideological Teacher, The Satanic
Chamberlain; A 19th Century Anti-Semite

By GLEN LENHOFF

Student, Wayne State U.

The November resolution
of the United Nations whiCh
condemned Zionism as a
form of racism is now well
known. Many well-docu-
mented analyses have been
published which completely
refute this ridiculous
harge; by now, any reason-
able person should scoff at
the United Nations asser-
t tion, and recognize it as
pure political propaganda.
But, propaganda is nearly
always based on an idea,
and the Arab-sponsored res-
lution is no exception, the
Arabs theorize that the
Zionist movement is racist
in nature.
This is the concept which
they claim to have discov-
ered; but really, they have
no right to claim such origi-
nality. Over 70 years ago, a
transplanted Englishman,
writing out of Germany,
first enunciated the doc-
trine that Judaism in gen-
eral, and Zionism in partic-
ular, is racist in nature.
The author's name was
Houston Stewart Chamber-
lain, and he must rank as
one of the most satanic in-
fluences on modern Jewish
history.
Chamberlain was born
in England in 1855, but
eventually he became a
citizen of Germany; he
wrote all his books in Ger-
man, and became a fervid
Germanic nationalist. His

major work was a massive
two-volume philosophy of
history entitled "The
Foundations of the Nine-
teenth Century (Die Grun-
dlagen des Neunzehnten
Jahrhunderts."
Chamberlain sought to
establish a racial theory of
history, that all civilizations
rose or fell strictly on the
basis of their racial make-
up.
Two races were vital in
considering his future of the
world' these two "races"
were the Teutons and the
Jews. Chamberlain defined
a Teuton to be any descen-
dant of the Celtic, Slavic, or
Germanic races; thus, all
Northern Europeans could
rightfully be called Teutons.
Chamberlain contended
that Teutonic Europe could
be made into a heaven on
earth; but first, there were a
few real dangers to be dealt
with. It was imperative that
the Teuton did not weaken
himself by racial mixture;
moreover, even if the Teu-
tonic race was kept pure,
Europe would have to guard
against any perversion of its
institutions and outside in-
stitutions by outside influ-
ences.
Indeed, Chamberlain was
seeing an alien people, dom-
inate the social, economic,
and cultural life of nearly
every important European
nation. The Jews were this
alien people.
Although the Jews were
a terrible enemy, Cham-

Blanchard Boycott Bill Due

Payments Problem

JERUSALEM (ZINS) —
The director of Israel's State
Bank, Moshe Zanwer, said
Israel's economy made cer-
tain technical gains last
year, but that the country
still is far from having be-
gun to solve its pressing eco-
nomic problems.
He referred to the trade
deficit in 1975 of $4.1 billion.
Israel's foreign indebted-
ness is now $8.2 billion, and
it costs the state $500 mil-
lion yearly jut to cover the
interest.

berlain gave them grudg-
ing respect. According to
him, the Jewish people
had long ago discovered
the primacy of race; in fact
their whole religion was
based not on monotheism,
but racism. This Jewish
racism was manifested by
the strict bibical rules
against intermarriage.
Chamberlain believed
that the Jews had con-
sciously created a fixed ra-
cial group, which was intent
on ruling the world.
He also discussed the idea
of a Jewish homeland; Israel
would be the focal point of
the Hebrew world empire,
and would be a special cen-
ter for Jewish inbreeding.
The country would be a
textbook example of racism.
Chamberlain's contortion
of the intermarriage prohi-
bitions is particularly vi-
cious and mendacious.
These prohibitions are, and
have always been, intended
only as measures to prevent
a weakening of the religion.
This is proven by the fact
that any sincere person who
wishes to become a Jew is
welcome, - regardless of his
racial background. The
truth eluded Chamberlain,
just as it has eluded his
Arab successors.
Chamberlain's philoso-
phy has been extraordi-
narily influential on mod-
ern Europe. His theories of

were first embraced by
Kaiser Wilhelm II; the em-
perior hailed Chamberlain
as "the most brilliant
thinker in Europe."
After Germany's defeat
in World War I, Chamber-
lain seemed to be turning
into a bitter old man; how-
ever, in.1923, just four years
before his death,,he experi-
enced a revealation. In that
year he met a young Bavar-
ian politician — Adolph Hit-
ler.
Chamberlain was fasci-
nated by Hitler, and pro-
nounced him as "the savior
of Germany." This was a
startling statement for a
world famous author to
make about an unknown
beer hall orator, but Cham-
berlain was sure of Hitler's
destiny.
When the Nazis did gain
power, they hailed Cham-
berlain as "the spiritual
father of the Third Reich."

Woe unto him that buil-

That useth his neighbor's
service without wages,
And giveth him not his
hire.
