Benjamin H. Freedman was one of the most intriguing and amazing individuals of the 20th century. Born in 1890, he was a successful Jewish businessman of New York City at one time principal owner of the Woodbury Soap Company. He broke with organized Jewry after the Judeo-Communist victory of 1945, and spent the remainder of his life and the great preponderance of his considerable fortune, at least 2.5 million dollars, exposing the Jewish tyranny which has enveloped the United States.
Mr. Freedman knew what he was talking about because he had been an insider at the highest levels of Jewish organizations and Jewish machinations to gain power over our nation. Mr. Freedman was personally acquainted with Bernard Baruch, Samuel Untermyer, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, Joseph Kennedy, John F. Kennedy, and many more movers and shakers of our times. The Willard Hotel, Washington, D.C., speech was given before a patriotic, Christian audience (NOT before Nazis as some have suggested) in 1961 on behalf of Conde McGinley's patriotic newspaper of that time, Common Sense.
Though in some minor ways this wide-ranging and extemporaneous speech has become dated, Mr. Freedman's essential message to us - his warning to the West - is more urgent than ever before.
Transcript of Freedman's Speech
Ladies and gentlemen, you are about to hear a very frightening speech. This
speech is an explanation of the plans now being laid to throw the United
States into a third world war. It was made a short time ago before a large
group in the Congressional `Room of the Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C.
Both the speech and the question and answer period later so electrified the
audience that a group of patriots has transferred it to two long-playing
records to play for friends, clubs, and your church group in your community.
The speaker is Mr. Benjamin Freedman, noted authority on Zionism and all
of its schemes. Mr. Freedman is a former Jew, and I mean a FORMER Jew.
He has fought the Communist world conspiracy tooth and nail, and stands
today as a leading American patriot. We now take you to the speaker's
platform to present Benjamin Freedman.
What I intend to tell you tonight is something that you have never been able
to learn from any other source, and what I tell you now concerns not only
you, but your children and the survival of this country and Christianity. I'm
not here just to dish up a few facts to send up your blood pressure, but I'm
here to tell you things that will help you preserve what you consider the
most sacred things in the world: the liberty, and the freedom, and the right
to live as Christians, where you have a little dignity, and a little right to
pursue the things that your conscience tells you are the right things, as
Now, first of all, I'd like to tell you that on August 25th 1960 - that was
shortly before elections - Senator Kennedy, who is now the President of the
United States, went to New York, and delivered an address to the Zionist
Organization of America. In that address, to reduce it to its briefest form,
he stated that he would use the armed forces of the United States to preserve
the existence of the regime set up in Palestine by the Zionists who are now
in occupation of that area.
In other words, Christian boys are going to be yanked out of their homes,
away from their families, and sent abroad to fight in Palestine against the
Christian and Moslem Arabs who merely want to return to their homes. And
these Christian boys are going to be asked to shoot to kill these innocent
[Arab Palestinians] people who only want to follow out fifteen resolutions
passed by the United Nations in the last twelve years calling upon the
Zionists to allow these people to return to their homes.
Now, when United States troops appear in the Middle East to fight with the
Zionists as their allies to prevent the return of these people who were evicted
from their homes in the 1948 armed insurrection by the Zionists who were
transplanted there from Eastern Europe... when that happens, the United
States will trigger World War III.
You say, when will that take place? The answer is, as soon as the difficulty
between France and Algeria has been settled, that will take place. As soon as
France and Algeria have been settled, that will take place. As soon as France
and Algeria have settled their difficulty, and the Arab world, or the Moslem
world, has no more war on their hands with France, they are going to move
these people back into their homes, and when they do that and President
kennedy sends your sons to fight over there to help the crooks hold on to
what they stole from innocent men, women and children, we will trigger
World War III; and when that starts you can be sure we cannot emerge from
that war a victor. We are going to lose that war because there is not one
nation in the world that will let one of their sons fight with us for such a
I know and speak to these ambassadors in Washington and the United
Nations - and of the ninety-nine nations there, I've consulted with maybe
seventy of them -and when we go to war in Palestine to help the thieves
retain possession of what they have stolen from these innocent people we're
not going to have a man there to fight with us as our ally.
And who will these people have supporting them, you ask. Well, four days
after President Kennedy - or he was then Senator Kennedy - made that
statement on August 28, 1960, the Arab nations called a meeting in Lebanon
and there they decided to resurrect, or reactivate, the government of
Palestine, which has been dormant more or less, since the 1948 armed
insurrection by the Zionists.
Not only that... they ordered the creation of the Palestine Army, and they are now drilling maybe a half a million soldiers in that area of the world to lead these people back to theirhomeland. With them, they have as their allies all
the nations of what is termed the Bandung Conference Group. That includes
the Soviet Union and every Soviet Union satellite.
It includes Red China; it
includes every independent country in Asia and Africa; or eighty percent of
the world's total population. Eighty percent of the world's population. Four
out of five human beings on the face of the earth will be our enemies at war with us. And not alone are they four out of five human beings now on the face of this earth, but they are the non-Christian population of the world and they are the non-Caucasians... the non-white nations of the world, and that's what we face.
And what is the reason ? The reason is that here in the United States, the
Zionists and their co-religionists have complete control of our government.
For many reasons too many and too complex to go into here at this - time
I'll be glad to answer questions, however, to support that statement - the
Zionists and their co-religionists rule this United States as though they were the absolute monarchs of this country.
Now, you say, ‘well, that's a very broad statement to make', but let me show what happened while you were - I don't want to wear that out - let me show what happened while WE were all asleep. I'm including myself with
you. We were all asleep. What happened ?
World War I broke out in the summer of 1914. Nineteen-hundred and
fourteen was the year in which World War One broke out. There are few
people here my age who remember that. Now that war was waged on one
side by Great Britain, France, and Russia; and on the other side by Germany,
Austria-Hungary, and Turkey. What happened ?
Within two years Germany had won that war: not alone won it nominally,
but won it actually. The German submarines, which were a surprise to the
world, had swept all the convoys from the Atlantic Ocean, and Great Britain
stood there without ammunition for her soldiers, stood there with one week's food supply facing her - and after that, starvation.
At that time, the French army had mutinied. They lost 600,000 of the flower of French youth in the defense of Verdun on the Somme. The Russian army was defecting. They were picking up their toys and going home, they didn't want to play war anymore, they didn't like the Czar. And the Italian army had collapsed.
Now Germany - not a shot had been fired on the German soil. Not an
enemy soldier had crossed the border into Germany. And yet, here was
Germany offering England peace terms. They offered England a negotiated
peace on what the lawyers call a status quo ante basis. That means: "Let's
call the war off, and let everything be as it was before the war started."
Well, England, in the summer of 1916 was considering that. Seriously !
They had no choice. It was either accepting this negotiated peace that
Germany was magnanimously offering them, or going on with the war and
being totally defeated.
While that was going on, the Zionists in Germany, who represented the
Zionists from Eastern Europe, went to the British War Cabinet and - I am
going to be brief because this is a long story, but I have all the documents to prove any statement that I make if anyone here is curious, or doesn't believe what I'm saying is at all possible - the Zionists in London went to the British war cabinet and they said: "Look here. You can yet win this war.
You don't have to give up. You don't have to accept the negotiated peace
offered to you now by Germany. You can win this war if the United States
will come in as your ally."
The United States was not in the war at that time. We were fresh; we were young; we were rich; we were powerful. They [Zionists] told England: "We will guarantee to bring the United States into the war as your ally, to fight with you on your side, if you will promise us Palestine after you win the war."
In other words, they made this deal: " We will get the United States into this war as your ally. The price you must pay us is Palestine after you have won the war and defeated Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Turkey."
Now England had as much right to promise Palestine to anybody, as the
United States would have to promise Japan to Ireland for any reason
whatsoever. It's absolutely absurd that Great Britain - that never had any
connection or any interest or any right in what is known as Palestine -
should offer it as coin of the realm to pay the Zionists for bringing the
United States into the war.
However, they made that promise, in October of 1916. October, nineteen
hundred and sixteen. And shortly after that - I don't know how many here
remember it - the United States, which was almost totally pro-German -
totally pro-German - because the newspapers here were controlled by Jews, the bankers were Jews, all the media of mass communications in this country were controlled by Jews, and they were pro-German because their people, in the majority of cases came from Germany, and they wanted to see Germany lick the Czar.
The Jews didn't like the Czar, and they didn't want Russia to win this war. So the German bankers - the German-Jews - Kuhn Loeb and the other big
banking firms in the United States refused to finance France or England to
the extent of one dollar. They stood aside and they said: &"As long as
France and England are tied up with Russia, not one cent ! " But they poured money into Germany, they fought with Germany against Russia, trying to
lick the Czarist regime.
Now those same Jews, when they saw the possibility of getting Palestine,
they went to England and they made this deal. At that time, everything
changed, like the traffic light that changes from red to green. Where the
newspapers had been all pro-German, where they'd been telling the people
of the difficulties that Germany was having fighting Great Britain
commercially and in other respects, all of a sudden the Germans were no
good. They were villains. They were Huns. They were shooting Red Cross
nurses. They were cutting off babies' hands. And they were no good.
Well, shortly after that, Mr. Wilson declared war on Germany.
The Zionists in London sent these cables to the United States, to Justice
Brandeis: "Go to work on President Wilson. We're getting from England
what we want. Now you go to work, and you go to work on President
Wilson and get the United States into the war." And that did happen. That's
how the United States got into the war. We had no more interest in it; we
had no more right to be in it than we have to be on the moon tonight instead of in this room.
Now the war - World War One - in which the United States participated
had absolutely no reason to be our war. We went in there - we were
railroaded into it - if I can be vulgar, we were suckered into - that war
merely so that the Zionists of the world could obtain Palestine. Now, that is
something that the people in the United States have never been told. They
never knew why we went into World War One. Now, what happened ?
After we got into the war, the Zionists went to Great Britain and they said:
"Well, we performed our part of the agreement. Let's have something in
writing that shows that you are going to keep your bargain and give us
Palestine after you win the war." Because they didn't know whether the war
would last another year or another ten years. So they started to work out a receipt. The receipt took the form of a letter, and it was worded in very
cryptic language so that the world at large wouldn't know what it was all
about. And that was called the Balfour Declaration.
the Balfour Declaration was merely Great Britain's promise to pay the
Zionists what they had agreed upon as a consideration for getting the United States into the war. So this great Balfour Declaration, that you hear so much about, is just as phony as a three dollar bill. And I don't think I could make it more emphatic than that.
Now, that is where all the trouble started. The United States went in the war.
The United States crushed Germany. We went in there, and it's history. You
know what happened. Now, when the war was ended, and the Germans went to Paris, to the Paris Peace Conference in 1919, there were 117 Jews there, as a delegation representing the Jews, headed by Bernard Baruch. I was there: I ought to know. Now what happened ?
The Jews at that peace conference, when they were cutting up Germany and parceling out Europe to all these nations that claimed a right to a certain part of European territory, the Jews said, ?How about Palestine for us?? And they produced, for the first time to the knowledge of the Germans, this Balfour Declaration. So the Germans, for the first time realized, ?Oh, that was the game! That's why the United States came into the war.? And the Germans for the first time realized that they were defeated, they suffered this terrific reparation that was slapped onto them, because the Zionists wanted Palestine and they were determined to get it at any cost.
Now, that brings us up to another very interesting point. When the Germans
realized this, they naturally resented it. Up to that time, the Jews had never been better off in any country in the world than they had been in Germany.
You had Mr. Rathenau there, who was maybe 100 times as important in
industry and finance as is Bernard Baruch in this country. You had Mr.
Balin, who owned the two big steamship lines, the North German Lloyd's
and the Hamburg-American Lines. You had Mr. Bleichroder, who was the
banker for the Hohenzollern family. You had the Warburgs in Hamburg,
who were the big merchant bankers - the biggest in the world. The Jews
were doing very well in Germany. No question about that. Now, the
Germans felt: ?Well, that was quite a sellout.?
It was a sellout that I can best compare - suppose the United States was at
war today with the Soviet Union. And we were winning. And we told the
Soviet Union: "Well, let's quit. We offer you peace terms. Let's forget the
whole thing." And all of a sudden Red China came into the war as an ally of
the Soviet Union. And throwing them into the war brought about our defeat.
A crushing defeat, with reparations the likes of which man's imagination
Imagine, then, after that defeat, if we found out that it was the Chinese in
this country, our Chinese citizens, who all the time we thought they were
loyal citizens working with us, were selling us out to the Soviet Union and
that it was through them that Red China was brought into the war against us.
How would we feel, in the United States against Chinese ? I don't think that
one of them would dare show his face on any street. There wouldn't be
lampposts enough, convenient, to take care of them. Imagine how we would
Well, that's how the Germans felt towards these Jews. "We've been so nice
to them"; and from 1905 on, when the first Communist revolution in Russia
failed, and the Jews had to scramble out of Russia, they all went to
Germany. And Germany gave them refuge. And they were treated very
nicely. And here they sold Germany down the river for no reason at all other
than they wanted Palestine as a so-called "Jewish commonwealth."
Now, Nahum Sokolow - all the great leaders, the big names that you read
about in connection with Zionism today - they, in 1919, 1920, '21, '22, and
'23, they wrote in all their papers - and the press was filled with their
statements - that "the feeling against the Jews in Germany is due to the fact that they realized that this great defeat was brought about by our intercession and bringing the United States into the war against them."
The Jews themselves admitted that. It wasn't that the Germans in 1919
discovered that a glass of Jewish blood tasted better than Coca-Cola or
Muenschner Beer. There was no religious feeling. There was no sentiment
against those people merely on account of their religious belief. It was all
political. It was economic. It was anything but religious.
Nobody cared in Germany whether a Jew went home and pulled down the
shades and said ?Shema' Yisrael? or ?Our Father.? No one cared in
Germany any more than they do in the United States. Now this feeling that
developed later in Germany was due to one thing: that the Germans held the Jews responsible for their crushing defeat, for no reason at all, because
World War One was started against Germany for no reason for which they
[Germans] were responsible. They were guilty of nothing. Only of being
successful. They built up a big navy. They built up world trade.
You must remember, Germany, at the time of Napoleon, at the time of the
French Revolution, what was the German Reich consisted of 300 - three
hundred ! - small city-states, principalities, dukedoms, and so forth. Three
hundred little separate political entities. And between that time, between the period of... between Napoleon and Bismarck, they were consolidated into one state. And within 50 years after that time they became one of the world's great powers. Their navy was rivalling Great Britain's, they were doing business all over the world, they could undersell anybody and make better products. And what happened? What happened as a result of that ?
There was a conspiracy between England, France, and Russia that: "We
must slap down Germany", because there isn't one historian in the world that can find a valid reason why those three countries decided to wipe Germany off the map politically. Now, what happened after that ?
When Germany realized that the Jews were responsible for her defeat, they
naturally resented it. But not a hair on the head of any Jew was harmed. Not a single hair. Professor Tansill, of Georgetown University, who had access to all the secret papers of the State Department, wrote in his book, and quoted from a State Department document written by Hugo Schoenfelt, a Jew who Cordell Hull sent to Europe in 1933 to investigate the so-called
camps of political prisoners. And he wrote back that he found them in very
They were in excellent shape; everybody treated well. And they were filled
with Communists. Well, a lot of them were Jews, because the Jews happened to be maybe 98 per cent of the Communists in Europe at that time. And there were some priests there, and ministers, and labor leaders, Masons, and others who had international affiliations.
Now, the Jews sort of tried to keep the lid on this fact. They didn't want the world to really understand that they had sold out Germany, and that the Germans resented that.
So they did take appropriate action against them [against the Jews]. They. . .
shall I say, discriminated against them wherever they could ? They shunned
them. The same as we would the Chinese, or the Negroes, or the Catholics,
or anyone in this country who had sold us out to an enemy and brought
about our defeat.
Now, after a while, the Jews of the world didn't know what to do, so they
called a meeting in Amsterdam. Jews from every country in the world
attended in July 1933. And they said to Germany: ?You fire Hitler! And you
put every Jew back into his former position, whether he was a Communist,
no matter what he was. You can't treat us that way! And we, the Jews of the world, are calling upon you, and serving this ultimatum upon you.? Well, the Germans told them... you can imagine. So what did they [the Jews] do?
They broke up, and Samuel Untermyer, if the name means anything to
people here... (You want to ask a question? - Uh, there were no
Communists in Germany at that time, they were called ‘Social Democrats.)
Well, I don't want to go by what they were called. We're now using English
words, and what they were called in Germany is not very material. . . but
they were Communists, because in 1917, the Communists took over
Germany for a few days. Rosa Luxembourg and Karl Liebknecht, and a
group of Jews in Germany took over the government for three days. In fact,
when the Kaiser ended the war, he fled to Holland because he thought the
Communists were going to take over Germany as they did Russia, and that
he was going to meet the same fate that the Czar did in Russia. So he left and went to Holland for safety and for security.
Now, at that time, when the Communist threat in Germany was quashed, it
was quiet, the Jews were working, still trying to get back into their former -
their status - and the Germans fought them in every way they could, without hurting a hair on anyone's head. The same as one group, the Prohibitionists, fought the people who were interested in liquor, and they didn't fight one another with pistols, they did it every way they could.
Well, that's the way they were fighting the Jews in Germany. And, at that
time, mind you, there were 80 to 90 million Germans and there were only
460,000 Jews. . . less than one half of one percent of Germany were Jews.
And yet, they controlled all of the press, they controlled most of the
economy, because they had come in and with cheap money - you know the
way the Mark was devalued - they bought up practically everything.
Well, in 1933 when Germany refused to surrender, mind you, to the World
Conference of Jews in Amsterdam, they broke up and Mr. Untermeyer came
back to the United States - who was the head of the American delegation
and the president of the whole conference - and he went from the steamer to ABC and made a radio broadcast throughout the United States in which he said:
"The Jews of the world now declare a Holy War against Germany. We are
now engaged in a sacred conflict against the Germans. And we are going to
starve them into surrender. We are going to use a world-wide boycott against them, that will destroy them because they are dependent upon their export business."
And it is a fact that two thirds of Germany's food supply had to be imported, and it could only be imported with the proceeds of what they exported. Their labor. So if Germany could not export, two thirds of Germany's population would have to starve. There just was not enough food for more than one third of the population.
Now in this declaration, which I have here, it was printed on page - a whole
page - in the New York Times on August 7, 1933, Mr. Samuel Untermyer
boldly stated that: "this economic boycott is our means of self-defense.
President Roosevelt has advocated its use in the NRA" . [National Recovery
Administration] - which some of you may remember, where everybody was
to be boycotted unless they followed the rules laid down by the New Deal,
which of course was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court at that
Nevertheless, the Jews of the world declared a boycott against Germany, and
it was so effective that you couldn't find one thing in any store anywhere in
the world with the words "made in Germany" on it.
In fact, an executive of the Woolworth Company told me that they had to
dump millions of dollars worth of crockery and dishes into the river; that
their stores were boycotted. If anyone came in and found a dish marked
"made in Germany," they were picketed with signs: "Hitler", "murderer",
and so forth, and like - something like these sit-ins that are taking place in
R. H. Macy, which is controlled by a family called Strauss who also happen
to be Jews. . . a woman found stockings there which came from Chemnitz,
marked "made in Germany". Well, they were cotton stockings. They may
have been there 20 years, because since I've been observing women's legs in the last twenty years, I haven't seen a pair with cotton stockings on them. So Macy ! I saw Macy boycotted, with hundreds of people walking around with signs saying "MURDERS" and "HITLERITES", and so forth.
Now up to that time, not one hair on the head of any Jew had been hurt in
Germany. There was no suffering, there was no starvation, there was no
murder, there was nothing.
Now, that... naturally, the Germans said, "Why, who are these people to
declare a boycott against us and throw all our people out of work, and our
industries come to a standstill ? Who are they to do that to us?" They
naturally resented it. Certainly they painted swastikas on stores owned by
Why should a German go in and give their money to a storekeeper who was
part of a boycott who was going to starve Germany into surrender into the
Jews of the world, who were going to dictate who their premier or chancellor
was to be? Well, it was ridiculous.
That continued for some time, and it wasn't until 1938, when a young Jew
from Poland walked into the German embassy in Paris and shot one of the
officials [a German official] that the Germans really started to get rough with the Jews in Germany. And you found them then breaking windows and
having street fights and so forth.
Now, for anyone to say that - I don't like to use the word ‘anti-Semitism'
because it's meaningless, but it means something to you still, so I'll have to
use it - the only reason that there was any feeling in Germany against Jews
was that they were responsible: number one, for World War One; number
two, for this world-wide boycott, and number three - did I say for World
War One, they were responsible? For the boycott - and also for World War
II, because after this thing got out of hand, it was absolutely necessary for
the Jews and Germany to lock horns in a war to see which one was going to
In the meanwhile, I had lived in Germany, and I knew that the Germans had
decided [that] Europe is going to be Christian or Communist: there is no in
between. It's going to be Christian or it's going to be Communist. And the
Germans decided: "We're going to keep it Christian if possible". And they
started to re-arm.
And there intention was - by that time the United States had recognized the Soviet Union, which they did in November, 1933 - the Soviet Union was
becoming very powerful, and Germany realized: "Well, our turn is going to
come soon, unless we are strong." The same as we in this country are saying today, "Our turn is going to come soon, unless we are strong."
And our government is spending 83 or 84 billion dollars of your money for
defense, they say.Defense against whom ? Defense against 40,000 little Jews in Moscow that took over Russia, and then, in their devious ways, took over control of many other governments of the world.
Now, for this country to now be on the verge of a Third World War, from
which we cannot emerge a victor, is something that staggers my
imagination. I know that nuclear bombs are measured in terms of megatons.
A megaton is a term used to describe one million tons of TNT. One million
tons of TNT is a megaton. Now, our nuclear bombs have a capacity of 10
megatons, or 10 million tons of TNT. That was when they were first
developed five or six years ago. Now, the nuclear bombs that are being
developed have a capacity of 200 megatons, and God knows how many
megatons the nuclear bombs of the Soviet Union have.
So, what do we face now ? If we trigger a world war that may develop into a nuclear war, humanity is finished. And why will it take place ? It will take
place because Act III... the curtain goes up on Act III. Act I was World War I. Act II was World War II. Act III is going to be World War III.
The Jews of the world, the Zionists and their co-religionists everywhere, are determined that they are going to again use the United States to help them permanently retain Palestine as their foothold for their world government.
Now, that is just as true as I am standing here, because not alone have I read it, but many here have read it, and it's known all over the world.
Now, what are we going to do ? The life you save may be your son's. Your
boys may be on their way to that war tonight; and you you don't know it any more than you knew that in 1916 in London the Zionists made a deal with the British War Cabinet to send your sons to war in Europe. Did you know it at that time? Not a person in the United States knew it. You weren't permitted to know it.
Who knew it ? President Wilson knew it. Colonel House knew it. Other ‘s
knew it. Did I know it ? I had a pretty good idea of what was going on: I was liaison to Henry Morgenthau, Sr., in the 1912 campaign when President
Wilson was elected, and there was talk around the office there.
I was ‘confidential man' to Henry Morgenthau, Sr., who was chairman of the
Finance Committee, and I was liaison between him and Rollo Wells, the
treasurer. So I sat in these meetings with President Wilson at the head of the table, and all the others, and I heard them drum into President Wilson's brain the graduated income tax and what has become the Federal Reserve, and also indoctrinate him with the Zionist movement.
Justice Brandeis and President Wilson were just as close as the two fingers
on this hand, and President Woodrow Wilson was just as incompetent when
it came to determining what was going on as a newborn baby. And that's
how they got us into World War I, while we all slept. They sent our boys
over there to be slaughtered. For what? So the Jews can have Palestine as
their "commonwealth." They've fooled you so much that you don't know
whether you're coming or going.
Now any judge, when he charges a jury, says, "Gentlemen, any witness that you find has told a single lie, you can disregard all his testimony." That is correct. I don't know from what state you come, but in New York state that is the way a judge addresses a jury. If that witness said one lie, disregard his testimony.
Now, what are the facts about the Jews ?
The Jews - I call them Jews to you, because they are known as Jews. I don't call them Jews. I refer to them as so-called Jews, because I know what they are. If Jesus was a Jew, there isn't a Jew in the world today, and if those people are Jews, certainly our Lord and Savior was not one of them, and I can prove that.
Now what happened ? The eastern European Jews, who form 92 per cent of
the world's population of those people who call themselves Jews, were
They were a warlike tribe that lived deep in the heart of Asia. And they were so warlike that even the Asiatics drove them out of Asia into eastern Europe - and to reduce this so you don't get too confused about the history of Eastern Europe - they set up this big Khazar kingdom: 800,000 square miles. Only, there was no Russia, there were no other countries, and the Khazar kingdom was the biggest country in all Europe - so big and so
powerful that when the other monarchs wanted to go to war, the Khazars
would lend them 40,000 soldiers. That's how big and powerful they were.
Now, they were phallic worshippers, which is filthy. I don't want to go into
the details of that now. It was their religion the way it was the religion of
many other Pagans or Barbarians elsewhere in the world. The Khazar king
became so disgusted with the degeneracy of his kingdom that he decided to adopt a so-called monotheistic faith - either Christianity, Islam - the moslem faith - or what is known today as Judaism, which is really Talmudism. By spinning a top, and calling out "eeny, meeny, miney, moe," he picked out socalled Judaism. And that became the state religion.
And he sent down to the Talmudic schools of Pumbedita and Sura and
brought up thousands of these rabbis with their teachings, and opened up
synagogues and schools in his kingdom of 800,000 people - 800,000
thousand square miles - and maybe ten to twenty million people; and they
became what we call Jews. There wasn't one of them that had an ancestor
that ever put a toe in the Holy Land, not only in Old Testament history, but
back to the beginning of time. Not one of them! And yet they come to the
Christians and they ask us to support their armed insurrection in Palestine by saying:
"Well, you want to certainly help repatriate God's chosen people to their
Promised Land, their ancestral homeland, It's your Christian duty. We gave
you one of our boys as your Lord and Savior. You now go to church on
Sunday, and kneel and you worship a Jew, and we're Jews."
Well, they were pagan Khazars who were converted just the same as the
Irish [were converted]. And it's just as ridiculous to call them "people of the
Holy Land," as it would be... there are 54 million Chinese Moslems. Fifty
four million ! And, Mohammed only died in 620 A.D., so in that time, 54
million Chinese have accepted Islam as their religious belief.
Now imagine, in China, 2,000 miles away from Arabia, where the city of
Mecca is located, where Mohammed was born... imagine if the 54 million
Chinese called themselves ‘Arabs'. Imagine ! Why, you'd say they're lunatics.
Any man that believes that those 54 million Chinese are Arabs must be
crazy. All they did was adopt as a religious faith; a belief that had its origin
in Mecca, in Arabia.
The same as the Irish. When the Irish became Christians, nobody dumped
them in the ocean and imported from the Holy Land a new crop of
inhabitants that were Christians. That were christians of flesh and blood.
They weren't different people. They were the same people, but they had
accepted Christianity as a religious faith.
Now, these Pagans, these Asiatics, these Turko-Finns... they were a
Mongoloid race who were forced out of Asia into eastern Europe. They
likewise, because their king took the faith - Talmudic faith - they had no
choice. Just the same as in Spain: If the king was Catholic, everybody had to be a Catholic. If not, you had to get out of Spain. So everybody - they lived on the land just like the trees and the bushes; a human being belonged to the land under their feudal system - so they [Khazars] all became what we call today, Jews !
Now imagine how silly it was for the Christians... for the great Christian
countries of the world to say, "We're going to use our power, our prestige to help repatriate God's chosen people to their ancestral homeland, their
Now, could there be a bigger lie than that ? Could there be a bigger lie than
And because they control the newspapers, the magazines, the radio, the
television, the book publishing business, they have the ministers in the
pulpit, they have the politicians on the soap boxes talking the same language... so naturally you'd believe black is white if you heard it often enough. You wouldn't call black black anymore - you'd start to call black white. And nobody could blame you.
Now, that is one of the great lies... that is the foundation of all the misery
that has befallen the world. Because after two wars fought in Europe -
World War I and World War II - if it wasn't possible for them to live in
peace and harmony with the people in Europe, like their brethren are living
in the United States, what were the two wars fought for ? Did they have to -
like you flush the toilet - because they couldn't get along, did they have to
say, "Well, we're going back to our homeland and you Christians can help
I can't understand yet how the Christians in Europe could have been that
dumb because every theologian, every history teacher, knew the things that I'm telling you. But, they naturally bribed them, shut them up with money, stuffed their mouths with money, and now... I don't care whether you know all this or not. It doesn't make any difference to me whether you know all these facts or not, but it does make a difference to me. I've got, in my family, boys that will have to be in the next war, and I don't want them to go and fight and die... like they died in Korea. Like they died in Japan. Like they've died all over the world. For what ?
To help crooks hold on to what they stole from innocent people who had
been in peaceful possession of that land, those farms, those homes for
hundreds and maybe thousands of years ? Is that why the United States must
go to war ? Because the Democratic Party wants New York State - the
electoral vote? Illinois, the electoral vote ? And Pennsylvania, the electoral
vote ?... which are controlled by the Zionists and their co-religionists ?... the balance of power ?
In New York City there are 400,000 members of the liberal party, all
Zionists and their co-religionists. And New York State went for Kennedy by
400,000 votes. Now, I don't blame Mr. Kennedy. I'm fond of Mr. Kennedy. I
think he's a great man. I think he can really pull us out of this trouble if we
get the facts to him. And I believe he knows a great deal more than his
appointments indicate he knows. He's playing with the enemy. Like when
you go fishing, you've got to play with the fish. Let ‘em out and pull ‘em in.
Let ‘em out and pull ‘em in. But knowing Mr. Kennedy's father, and how
well informed he is on this whole subject, and how close Kennedy is to his
father, I don't think Mr. Kennedy is totally in the dark.
But I do think that it is the duty of every mother, every loyal Christian ,
every person that regards the defense of this country as a sacred right, that they communicate - not with their congressman, not with their senator, but with President Kennedy.
And tell him, "I do not think you should send my
boy, or our boys, wearing the uniform of the United States of America, and
under the flag that you see here, our red, white and blue, to fight there to
help keep in the hands of these that which they have stolen". I think
everyone should not alone write once, but keep writing and get your friends
Now, I could go on endlessly, and tell you these things to support what I
have just asked you to do. But I don't think it's necessary to do that. You're above the average group in intelligence and I don't think it's necessary to impress this any more.
But... I want to tell you one more thing. You talk about... "Oh, the Jews.
Why the Jews ? Christianity. Why, we got Christianity from the Jews and
the Jews gave us Jesus, and the Jews gave us our religion". But do you know that on the day of atonement that you think is so sacred to them, that on that day... and I was one of them ! This is not hearsay. I'm not here to be a rabble-rouser. I'm here to give you facts.
When, on the Day of Atonement, you walk into a synagogue, the very first
prayer that you recite, you stand - and it's the only prayer for which you
stand - and you repeat three times a short prayer. The Kol Nidre. In that
prayer, you enter into an agreement with God Almighty that any oath, vow,
or pledge that you may make during the next twelve months - any oath, vow
or pledge that you may take during the next twelve months shall be null and
The oath shall not be an oath; the vow shall not be a vow; the pledge shall
not be a pledge. They shall have no force and effect, and so forth and so on.
And further than that, the Talmud teaches: "Don't forget - whenever you
take an oath, vow, and pledge - remember the Kol Nidre prayer that you
recited on the Day of Atonement, and that exempts you from fulfilling that".
How much can you depend on their loyalty ? You can depend upon their
loyalty as much as the Germans depended upon it in 1916.
And we're going to suffer the same fate as Germany suffered, and for the
same reason. You can't depend upon something as insecure as the leadership that is not obliged to respect an oath, vow or pledge. Now I could go on and recite many other things to you, but I would have a little respect for your
time, and you want to really, uh, get through with all of this. Tomorrow's
going to be a long day.
Now I want to say one thing. You ask me... well, you think to yourself: "well how did this fellow get mixed up in this the way he got mixed up in it."
Well, I opened my mouth in 1945, and I took big pages in newspapers and
tried to tell the American people what I'm telling you. And one newspaper
after another refused the advertisement. And when I couldn't find a
newspaper to take them - I paid cash, not credit - what happened ? My
lawyer told me, "There's an editor over in Jersey with a paper who will take
your announcement". So, I was brought together with Mr. McGinley, and
that's how I met him.
So somebody told me the lawyer who introduced me, who was the son of the Dean of the Methodist Bishop, he said: "Well, I think he's a little anti-
Semitic. I don't know whether I can get him over here. So he brought him
over to my apartment and we hit it off wonderfully, and have since then.
Now, I say this, and I say it without any qualifications. I say it without any
reservations. And I say it without any hesitation. . . if it wasn't for the work
that Mr. Conley McGinley did with "Common Sense" - he's been sending
out from 1,800,000 to 2,000,000 every year - if it wasn't for the work he's
been doing sending those out for fifteen years now, we would already be a
communist country. Nobody has done what he did to light fires. Many of the
other active persons in this fight learned all about if for the first time through "Common Sense".
Now, I have been very active in helping him all I could. I'm not as flush as I
was. I cannot go on spending the money... I'm not going to take up a
collection. Don't worry. I see five people getting up to leave. (laughter)
I haven't got the money that I used to spend. I used to print a quarter of a
million of them out of my own pocket and send them out. Mr. McGinley,
when I first met him, had maybe 5,000 printed and circulated them locally.
So I said, "With what you know and what I know, we can really do a good
job". So I started printing in outside shops of big newspaper companies, a
quarter of a million, and paid for them. Well, there's always a bottom to the
barrel. I suppose we've all reached that at times.
I'm not so poor that I can't live without working and that's what worries the
Anti-Defamation League. I can just get by without going and asking for a
job or getting on the bread line. But Mr. McGinley is working. He's sick and
he's going at this stronger than ever. And all I want to say is that they want
to close up "Common Sense" more than any other single thing in the whole
world, as a death-blow to the fight Christians are making to survive.
So I just want to tell you this. All they do is circulate rumors: "Mr. Benjamin
H. Freedman is the wealthy backer of ‘Common Sense'." The reason they do
that is to discourage the people in the United States: don't send any money to Common Sense. They don't need it. The've got the wealthy Mr. Freedman as a backer. That all has strategy. They don't want to advertise me so that people that have real estate or securities to sell will come and call on me.
They just want people to lay off "Common Sense".
And all I'm telling you is,
I do try to help him, but I haven't been able to. And I will be very honest.
One thing I won't do is lie. In the last year I've had so much sickness in my
family that I could not give him one dollar.
How he's managed to survive, I don't know. God alone knows. And he must
be in God's care because how he's pulled through his sickness and with his
financial troubles, I don't know. But that press is working... and every two
weeks about a hundred or a hundred-fifty-thousand of "Common Sense" go
out with a new message. And if that information could be multiplied... if
people that now get it could buy ten or twenty five, or fifty, give them
around. Plow that field. Sow those seeds, you don't know which will take
root, but for God's sake, this is our last chance.
[Freedman then discusses the importance of people forgoing unnecessary
purchases to 'buy more stuff', play golf, etc., and use the money to keep
"Common Sense" going. He explains that the paper is going in debt; could
be closed down and he (Freedman) no longer has the funds, having spent
some $2,400,000 in his attempt to bring the information to the American
public and elected officials. He then asks for questions from the audience.]
Freedman: All right, I'll comment on that. This is rather deep, but you all
have a very high degree of intelligence, so I'm going to make an attempt. In
the time of Bible history, there was a geographic area known as Judea. Judea was a province of the Roman Empire. Now, a person who lived in Judea was
known as a Judean, and in Latin it was Judaeus; in Greek it was Judaius.
Those are the two words, in Greek and Latin, for a Judean.
Now, in Latin and Greek there is no such letter as ‘j', and the first syllable of
Judaeus and Judaius starts ‘ghu'. Now, when the Bible was written, it was
first written in Greek, Latin, Panantic, Syriac, Aramaic... all those languages.
Never Was the word Jew in any of them because the word didn't exist. Judea was the country, and the people were Judeans, and Jesus was referred to only as a Judean. I've seen those early... the earliest scripts available.
In 1345, a man by the name of Wycliffe in England thought that it was time
to translate the Bible into English. There was no English edition of the Bible
because who the Devil could read ? It was only the educated church people
who could read Latin and Greek, Syriac, Aramaic and the other languages.
Anyhow, Wycliffe translated the Bible into English. And he did. But in it, he
had to look around for some words for Judaeas and Judaius.
There was no English word because Judea had passed out of existence.
There was no Judea. People had long ago forgotten that. So in the first
translation he used the word, in referring to Jesus, as ‘gyu', "jew". At the
time, there was no printing press.
Now, between 1345 and the 17th century, when the press came into use, that word passed through so many changes... I have them all here. If you want I can read them to you. I will. That word ‘gyu' which was in the Wycliffe Bible became. . . first it was ‘ gyu ‘, then ‘ giu ‘, then ‘ iu ‘ (because the ‘ i ‘ in Latin is pronounced like the ‘ j ‘. Julius Caesar is ‘ Iul ‘ because there is no ‘j' in Latin) then ‘ iuw ‘, then ‘ ieuu ‘, then ‘ ieuy ‘, then ‘ iwe ‘, then ‘ iow ‘, then ‘ iewe ‘, all in Bibles as time went on. Then ‘ ieue ‘, then ‘ iue ‘, then ‘ ive ‘, and then ‘ ivw ‘, and finally in the 18th century... ‘ jew ‘. Jew.
All the corrupt and contracted forms for Judaius, and Judaeas in Latin. Now,
there was no such thing as ‘Jew', and any theologian - I've lectured in maybe 20 of the most prominent theological seminaries in this country, and two in Europe - there was no such word as Jew. There only was Judea, and Jesus was a Judean and the first English use of a word in an English bible to
describe him was ‘gyu' - Jew. A contracted and shortened form of Judaeus,
just the same as we call a laboratory a ‘lab', and gasoline ‘gas'... a tendency to short up. [A few words are missing here]
But [a few words are missing here] in England there were no public schools;
people didn't know how to read; it looked like a scrambled alphabet so they
made a short word out of it. Now for a theologian to say that you can't harm the Jews, is just ridiculous. I'd like to know where in the scriptures it says that. I'd like to know the text.
Look at what happened to Germany for touching Jews. What would you, as
a citizen of the United States, do to people who did to you what the so-called Jews - the Pollacks and Litvaks and Litzianers - they weren't Jews, as I just explained to you. They were Eastern Europeans who'd been converted to Talmudism. There was no such thing as Judaism. Judaism was a name given in recent years to this religion known in Bible history as Torah [inaudible].
No Jew or no educated person ever heard of Judaism. It didn't exist. They
pulled it out of the air... a meaningless word.
Just like ‘anti-Semitic'. The Arab is a Semite. And the Christians talk about
people who don't like Jews as anti-Semites, and they call all the Arabs anti-
Semites. The only Semites in the world are the Arabs. There isn't one Jew
who's a Semite. They're all Turkothean Mongoloids. The Eastern european
Jews. So, they brainwashed the public, and if you will invite me to meet this
reverend who told you these things, I'll convince him and it'll be one step in
the right direction. I'll go wherever I have to go to meet him.
Yes, ma'am. Well... I can answer that. First of all, your first premise is
wrong. Your first premise that all the Jews are loyal to each other is wrong.
Because, the Eastern European Jews outnumber all the rest by so many that they create the impression that they are the Jewish ‘race'; that they are the Jewish nation; that they are the Jewish people. . . and the Christians swallow it like a cream puff.
But in 1844 the German rabbis called a conference of rabbis from all over
the world for the purpose of abolishing the Kol Nidre from the Day of
Atonement religious ceremony. In Brunswick, Germany, where that
conference was held in 1844, there was almost a terrific riot. A civil war.
The Eastern Europeans said, "What the hell. We should give up Kol Nidre ?
That gives us our grip on our people. We give them a franchise so they can
tell the Christians, ‘Go to hell. We'll make any deal you want', but they don't
have to carry it out. That gives us our grip on our people". So, they're not so united, and if you knew the feeling that exists.
Now, I'll also show you from an official document by the man responsible
for. . . uh, who baptized this race. Here is a paper that we obtained from the archives of the Zionist organization in New York City, and in it is the
manuscript by Sir James A. Malcolm, who - on behalf of the British
Cabinet - negotiated the deal with these Zionists.
And in here he says that all the jews in England were against it. The Jews
who had been there for years, the [inaudible - probably Sephardim], those
who had Portuguese and Spanish ad Dutch ancestry... who were monotheists and believed in that religious belief. That was while the Eastern European Jews were still running around in the heart of Asia and then came into
But they had no more to do with them than. . . can we talk about a
Christian ‘race' ? or a Christian religion ?... or are the Christians united ?
So the same disunity is among the Jews. And I'll show you in this same
document that when they went to France to try and get the French
government to back that Zionist venture, there was only one Jew in France
who was for it. That was Rothschild, and they did it because they were
interested in the oil and the Suez Canal.
[Question inaudible] Freedman: You know why ? Because if they don't,
they're decked up. They come around and they tell you how much you must
give, and if you don't . . . oh, you're anti-Semitic. Then none of their friends will have anything to do with them, and they start a smear campaign... and you have got to give.
In New York city, in the garment center, there are twelve manufacturers in
the building. And when the drive is on to sell Israel Bonds, the United
Jewish Drive, they put a big scoreboard with the names of the firms and
opposite them, as you make the amount they put you down for, they put a
gold star after the name. Then, the buyers are told, "When you come into
that building to call on someone and they haven't got a gold star, tell them
that you won't buy from them until they have the gold star". BLACKMAIL.
I don't know what else you can call it.
Then what do they do ? They tell you it's for ‘humanitarian purposes' and
they send maybe $8 billion dollars to Israel, tax exempt, tax deductible. So if they hadn't sent that eight billion dollars to Israel, seven billion of it would
have gone into the U.S. Treasury as income tax. So what happens ? That
seven billion dollars deficit - that air pocket - the gullible Christians have
to make up.
They put a bigger tax on gas or bread or corporation tax. Somebody has to
pay the housekeeping expenses for the government. So why do you let these people send their money over there to buy guns to drive people out of their ancient homeland ?
And you say, "Oh, well. The poor Jews. They have no
place to go and they've been persecuted all their lives". They've never been
persecuted for their religion. And I wish I had two rows of Rabbis here to
challenge me. Never once, in all of history, have they been persecuted for
Do you know why the Jews were driven out of England ? King Edward the
First in 1285 drove them out, and they never came back until the Cromwell
Revolution which was financed by the Rothschilds. For four-hundred years
there wasn't a Jew. But do you know why they were driven out ? Because in the Christian faith and the Moslem faith it's a sin to charge ‘rent' for the use of money. In other words - what we call interest [usury] is a sin.
So the Jews had a monopoly in England and they charged so much interest,
and when the Lords and Dukes couldn't pay, they [Jews] foreclosed. And
they were creating so much trouble that the king of England finally made
himself their partner, because when they they came to foreclose, some of
these dukes bumped off the Jews. . . the money-lenders. So the king finally
said - and this is all in history, look up Tianson [Tennyson?] or Rourke, the
History of the Jews in England; two books you can find in your library.
When the king found out what the trouble was all about, and how much
money they were making, he declared himself a fifty-percent partner of the
money lenders. Edward the First. And for many years, one-third of the
revenues of the British Treasury came from the fifty-percent interest in
money-lending by the Jews.
But it got worse and worse. So much worse that when the Lords and Dukes
kept killing the money-lenders, the King then said, "I declare myself the heir
of all the money-lenders. If they're killed you have to pay me, because I'm
his sole heir". That made so much trouble, because the King had to go out
and collect the money with an army, so he told the Jews "get the hell out of
here". There were 15,000 of them, and they had to get out, and they went
across to Ireland, and that's how Ireland got to be part of the United
When King Edward found out what they were doing, he decided to take
Ireland for himself before someone else did. He sent Robert Southgard with
a mercenary army and conquered Ireland. So, show me one time where a
Jew was persecuted in any country because of his religion. It has never
happened. It's always their impact on the political, social, or economic
customs and traditions of the community in which they settle.
[Question inaudible] Freedman: Yes, sir. Well, they say most of those things
themselves. It was unnecessary for Benjamin Franklin to say it. Most of
those things they say themselves. But Benjamin Franklin observed, and by
hearsay understood, what was happening in Europe.
When Russia, in 920 was formed, and gradually surrounded the Khazar
Kingdom, and absorbed them, most of the well-to-do Khazars fled to
Western Europe and brought with them the very things to which you object
and I object and a lot of other people object. The customs, the habits, the
instincts with which they were endowed.
Now, when Benjamin Franklin referred to them as Jews because that's the
name that they went by. Thats the name that they took. And the Christians, when they first heard that these people who were fleeing from Russia - who they were - that they had practiced this Talmudic faith - the Christians in Western Europe said, "They must be the remnants of the lost ten tribes!"
And Mr. Grutz, the greatest historian amongst the Jews, said that - and he's probably as good an authority on that subject as there is. So when Ben Franklin came to Europe in the 18th century, he already saw the results of what these people had done after they left their homeland. And every word of it is true... they themselves say it. I can give you half a dozen books they've written in which they say the same thing: When they have money they become tyrants. And when they become defeated, they become ruthless.
They're only barbarians. They're the descendants of Asiatic Mongols and
they will do anything to accomplish their purpose.
What right did they have to take over Russia the way they did ? The Czar
had abdicated nine or ten months before that. There was no need for them. . .
they were going to have a constitutional monarchy. But they didn't want that.
When the constitutional monarchy was to assemble in November, they
mowed them all down and established the Soviet Union.
There was no need for that. But they thought, "Now is the time", and if you
you will look in the Encyclopedia Britannica under the word ‘Bolshevism',
you'll find the five laws there that Lenin put down for a successful
revolution. One of them is, "Wait for the right time, and then give them
everything you've got". It would pay you to read that.
You'd also find that Mr. Harold Blacktree, who wrote the article for the
Encyclopedia Britannica states that the Jews conceived and created and
cultivated the Communist movement. And that their energy made them the
spearhead of the movement. Harold Blacktree wrote it and no one knew
more about Communism than he. And the Encyclopedia Britannica for 25
years has been printing it.
[Question inaudible] Freedman: Well, I can't advocate that you do anything
that's criminal, but I can tell you this. You can start what I call an endless
chain. If you can get your friends to write, objectively, here is the statement:
Mr. Kennedy's office gave me this himself. Mr. Smith, who succeeded Mr.
Kennedy, took over his office - was in his office - and gave me this. He
delivered this on the 25th, and it says here:
"For release to AM (that means morning papers), August 25th". "Israel is
here to stay. It is a national commitment, special obligation of the
Democratic Party. The White House must take the lead. American
intervention. We will act promptly and decisively against any nation in the
Middle East which attacks its neighbor. I propose that we make clear to both Israel and the Arab states our guarantee that we will act with whatever force and speed are necessary to halt any aggression by any nation".
Well, do you call the return of people to their homeland [the Arab
Palestinians] aggression ? Is Mr. Kennedy going to do that ? Suppose three
million Mexicans came into Texas and drove the six million Texans into the
deserts of Arizona and New Mexico. Suppose these Mexicans were slipped
in there armed - the Texans were disarmed - and one night they drove them all out of Texas and declared themselves the Republic of the Alamo. What would the United States say ?
Would we say it's aggression for these Texans to try to get their homes back from the Mexican thieves ? Suppose the Negroes in Alabama were secretly armed by the Soviets and overnight they rose up and drove all the whites into the swamps of Mississippi and Georgia and Florida. . . drove them out completely, and declared themselves the Republic of Ham, or the Republic of something-or-other. Would we call it aggression if these people, the whites of Alabama, tried to go back to their homes ?
Would we. . . what would we think if the soviet Union said, "No, those
Negroes now occupy them ! Leave them there!", or "No, those Mexicans are
in Texas. they declared themselves a sovereign state. Leave them there. You have plenty of room in Utah and Nevada. Settle somewhere else".
Would we call it aggression if the Alabama whites or the Texans wanted to
go back to their homes ? So now, you've got to write to President Kennedy
and say, "We do not consider it aggression in the sense that you use the
word, if these people want to return to their homes as the United Nations -
fifteen times in the last twelve years - called upon the Zionists in occupation of Palestine to allow the Arab Palestinians to return to their former homes and farms".
[End of transcript of Benjamin Freedman speech, given in 1961 at the
Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C., on behalf of Conde McGinley's patriotic
newspaper of that time, Common Sense.]
