Einstein Inquiry Revealed

WASHINGTON — The
Federal Bureau of Investi-
gation (FBI) conducted a
five-year investigation of
famed physicist Albert
Einstein during the 1950s,
according to syndicated col-
umnist Jack Anderson.
Anderson reported that
Einstein, whose theories led
to the development of the
atomic bomb, was suspected
by the FBI of using his Be-
rlin office as a cable drop for

AJC Asks Court
to Uphold Ruling
on School Clubs

NEW YORK — In an
amicus brief filed in the
U.S. Court of Appeals for
the 11th Circuit in Atlanta,
the American Jewish Con-
gress claims the presence of
student religious groups on
public school property
creates an "impermissible
possibility of administra-
tive entanglement" be-
tween government and reli-
gion, thereby breaching the
principle of church-state
separation.
The AJCongress has
urged the court to uphold a
U.S. District Court order
outlawing the presence of
school-sponsored religious
clubs.
"The school district's
entire brief proceeds on the
mistaken, if currently popu-
lar, assumption that the re-
lationship between a school
and religious activities or
speech need be no different
than the relationship which
exists between a school and
secular activities or
speech," says the brief
which was released by
Leonard Habif, president of
the Atlanta chapter of AJ-
Congress.

Streicher as the Filthiest of Hatemongers,
Who Poisoned the Minds of German People

Could there be anything
to match the hatred of
Julius Streicher, anything
more vile than the record of
the German publisher of the
Stuermer who inspired the
anti-Semitism of the Ger-
man people?
With a thoroughness that
attests to his record as an
eminent student of world af-
fairs, Randall L. Bytwerk
exposes one of the most at-
rocious chapters of the Nazi
terror in "Julius Streicher:
The Man Who Persuaded a
Nation to Hate Jews" (Stein
and Day).
At the Nuremberg trial,
the tribunal announced a
verdict, after hearing
Streicher plead that he had
not harmed Jews, that he
had begun to admire Jewish
heroism that was demon-
strated in the then Jewish
settlement in Palestine and
that he was ready to fight
for Jewish independence
upon learning of the Jewish
qualities.
It was on Sept. 20, 1946,
that the Nuremberg tri-
bunal indeed acquitted
him of the first charge,
conspiracy to wage ag-
gressive war, since there
was no evidence to sup-
port it. The judges
agreed, however, as Byt-
werk reports, "that his
long years of Jew-baiting
constituted . a crime
against humanity. He
would hang. On Oct. 16,
1946, Streicher died on
the gallows, a platform
far different from those
on which he had spoken
so regularly since 1919."
This volume is one of the
most shocking collections of
data about a vileness which
in its totality summarized
the Nazi horrors, the in-
humanities to which an
entire people was subjected.
There were many who re-
jected the filth that filled
the pages of the Stuermer in
which Streicher advocated
his hatreds. There were the
masses who made that vile
journal their Bible,
One of the chapters is
entitled, referring to the
Stuermer, "A Fierce and
Filthy Rag." In a sense this
summarizes the numerous
other descriptions of the
Streicher mind and his writ-
ings.
There was a "Pillory
Column" which listed the
names, published the
photos, of women who
were guilty of the crime
responding to a Jew's
greeting, of shaking a
Jewish hand, of the most
unimaginable crimes.
The fate of those so listed
was doomed thereby.
Newspapers copied such
columns. It was like a na-
tional embracing of hatred,
and Streicher was the
creator of the venom.
On this 500th anniver-
sary of Martin Luther it is
not improper to note that
Streicher sought to put into
action the hate that was
promulgated by the man
who was then engaged in re-
forming the Church and in

the process instituting
guidelines for anti-
Semitism.
"The Reformation, clear-
ing away large parts of the
medieval legacy, failed to
reform the European image
of the Jew. Martin Luther,
it is true, early in his career
urged tolerance for the Jews
and condemned persecution
of them. But later, perhaps
deciding that Jews would
not use the toleration he
proposed for the purpose he
intended — conversion —
he turned against them in
some of the most vitriolic
language in the long,
malevolent history of anti-
Semitism.

"Jews, he wrote in
1543, 'are nothing but
thieves and robbers who
daily eat no morsel and
wear no thread of clo-
thing which they have
not stolen and pilfered
from us by means of their
accursed usury . . . Such
a desperate, thoroughly
evil, poisonous, and de-
vilish lot are these Jews,
who for these 1,400 years
have been and still are
our plague, our pesti-
lence, and our misfor-
tune.'
"Luther proposed that
Jews be treated harshly.
Their synagogues should be
burned, their houses razed,
their holy books seized,
their legal protections
abolished, their rabbis
banned. They might even be
expelled entirely from
Germany, following the
example of other European
nations. His words were the
delight of later, and lesser,
German Jew-baiters."
Such were the in-
structions from a hateful
past that were followed in
their minutest details with
even greater severity — an
unimaginable application
of venom! — that dragged
an enlightened nation into
the gutter.
The author of this expo-
sure does more than indict
the criminality of an age
and a chief architect of bar-
barism. The book traces the
history of anti-Semitic
venom in Germany, the vic-
iousness of the Nazi leader-
ship, and the readiness with
which Germans followed
the instructions of and ap-
peals to the horror that left

such a demonic mark on the
history of the 1930s and
1940s.

Its roots were deep and
the horrors actually had
their beginnings in the
1920s.
This revealing work also
gives an account tracing the
venom to the notoriously
forged "Protocols of the El-
ders of Zion." There is the
recollection of the initial
treatment of them with a
measure of acceptance by
the London Times and that
newspaper's eventual apol-
ogy for it.
Perhaps Streicher left his
mark on the current anti-
Jewish page in the history
of bigotry. Sharing with the
Russian anti-Semites the
hate-spreading based on the
Protocols, the venom passed
on into the Arab ranks. The
USSR .in its most recent
anti-Semitic outburst, in
early June, resorted to the
Protocols. In April of this
year the Riyadh Domestic
News Service applied the
Protocols to the current
events in Beirut:
"The results of the explo-
sion, which the U.S. Em-
bassy in Beirut was sub-
jected to the day before yes-
terday, have continued to
escalate with the discovery
of additional bodies beneath
the ruins.
"With the continuation
of the rescue and search
operation, the results of
this action are evoling to
form one of the most fin-
portant and irresponsi-
ble criminal actions car-
ried out by Zionism with
utmost wickedness and

viciousness and in a most
sophisticated and precise
style, to achieve many ob-
jectives which as a whole
represent Israeli desires
whose importance to the
continuation of the ag-
gressive and expan-
sionist practices of the Is-
raeli entity is confirmed
by the Zionist reality in
all its stages . . .
"Israel's policy and prac-
tices allow it to use any
means to achieve a certain
objective, and it is ready to
do so in the future also, deal-
ing blows to and harming
even its closest friends if it
sees that this is in harmony
with its special ideology and
the Protocols of Zion."
Referring to the Protocols
as "the demonstrable
forgery originating in Rus-
sia in 1903," Bytwerk has a
lengthy expose of the at-
rocious forgeries and in an-
other section of the
Streicher book states:
"By summer 1933, a
Stuermer article discussing
the Protocols of the Learned
Elders of Zion claimed that
Jews were a people of mur-
derers and criminals.
`Therefore the Jewish race
must be exterminated from
beneath the sun.' "
Thus, a book dealing with
a single sick-minded bigot
serves to reveal the anti-
Semitic tactics that enrolled
the mass media in the vilest
experience in history. The
Bytwerk book is a valuable
contribution to the
Holocaust library and as an
indictment of the vileness of
anti-Semitism.
