Freemasonry and Judaism - Leon de Poncins

Jews in Modern Revolutions

Amongst the spectacles to which the 20th century invites us must be counted the final settlement of the destiny of European Jews. There is every evidence that now that they have cast their dice and crossed their Rubicon, there only remains for them to become masters of Europe or to lose Europe, as they lost Egypt in olden times, when they had placed themselves in a similar position (Nietzsche).

"There is a profound antagonism between Jews and non-Jews; antagonism both spiritual and racial arising from a radically different conception of life, antagonism deeper than is realized by those who see only its outward manifestations.

"Scattered and rendered powerless for two thousand years, the Jews have always been bitter revolutionaries, and thus we find them taking part in all modern revolutions of which they are the most active directing element.

"The part of the Jews in the French Revolution of 1789 was not evident; that was perhaps unnecessary: Free Masonry was doing the work and serving as a cloak. We have only a few glimpses of it: the three hundred Masons of the Constituent Assembly struggle with fierce energy and return to the charge fourteen times in order to obtain for the Jews the right of citizenship.

While studying Free Masonry we have seen the Jew at work in all the secret societies which promote revolutions. As a general rule where Free Masonry is active, he does not appear, for he does not care to work openly.

From 1848 their influence becomes more and more visible in European revolutions. The Prime Minister of Great Britain, the Jew Disraeli, declares that it is they who are the promoters of the movement:

"The world is governed by very different personages to what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes . . . That mighty revolution which is at this moment preparing in Germany, and which will be, in fact, a second and greater Reformation, and of which so little is yet known in England, is developing entirely under the auspices of the Jews."

And elsewhere:

"One can trace Jewish influence in the last revolutionary explosions in Europe. An insurrection has taken place against traditions, religion and property, the destruction of the Semitic principle, the extirpation of the Jewish religion, either under its Mosaic or Christian form, the natural equality of men and the annulment of property are proclaimed by the secret societies which form the provisional government, and men of Jewish race arc found at the head of each of them. The People of God cooperate with atheists, the most ardent accumulators of property link themselves with communists. The select and chosen race walks hand in hand with the scum of the lower castes of Europe. And all this because they wish to destroy this Christianity which owes them its very name and whose tyranny they can no longer bear."

These words are corroborated by those of Bernard Lazare:

"During the second revolutionary period which began in 1830 they showed even more fervor than during the first. They were moreover directly concerned for, in the majority of European states, they did not enjoy full civic rights. Even those among them who were not revolutionaries by reason or by temperament were such by self-interest; in working for the triumph of liberalism they were working for themselves. There is no doubt that by their gold, their energy, their ability, they supported and assisted the European revolution . . .

"During those years their bankers, their industrial magnates, their poets, their writers, their demagogues, prompted by very different ideas moreover, strove for the same end . . . we find them taking part in the movement of Young Germany: they were numerous in the secret societies which formed the ranks of the militant revolution, in the masonic lodges, in the groups of Carbonnaria, in the Roman Haute Vente, everywhere, in France, in Germany, in Switzerland, in Austria, in Italy."

It would be too long to follow in detail the part of the Jews in all modern revolutions; it was particularly apparent in Russia: Free Masonry being forbidden there, they were obliged to carry out the work themselves.

The great revolutionary onset which swept Europe at the end of the War was led by Jews. They were the leaders, their bands were taken from the dregs of the working class, eager for plunder, and amongst idealists who allowed themselves to be deceived by their clever propaganda. Like, the German Spartacism, Bolshevism in Hungary was a Judeo-Masonic movement; official Hungarian documents give irrefutable proofs.

On the 22nd March 1918 the Hungarian Soviet, Republic was established; its heads were Free Masons, e.g. the Minister of Public Instruction, Brother Kunzi (Kohn): Brother Jaszi, National Minister of the Soviets, Brother Ageslou Peter, Brother Lukaxs, son of a Jewish millionaire of Budapest; Brother Diener denes zoltan, and above all Brother Bela Kun (Kohn), a criminal of the first order, who still enjoys the special protection of the Austrian government.

The government of the Soviets was composed of Jews. Let us give here the names of the best known so that the memory of them may for long remain: the blood thirsty Tibor Szamuelly the Prime Minister of the government, Alexander Garbai, Joseph Pogany for the army: Ronai (Rosenstengel) for justice: Varga (Weichzelbaum) for finance; Vince (Weinstein) as governor of the capital: Moritz Erdelyi (Eisenstein), Dezso Biro (Bienenstock no. 2) for the police, all Jews, except Garbai.

Szamuelly traveled about Hungary in his special train; an eye witness gives the following description:

"This train of death rumbled through the Hungarian night, and where it stopped, men hung from trees, and blood flowed in the streets. Along the railway line one often found naked and mutilated corpses, Szamuelly passed sentence of death in the train and those forced to enter it never related what they had seen. Szamuelly lived in it constantly, thirty Chinese terrorists watched over his safety; special executioners accompanied him. The train was composed of two saloon cars, two first class cars reserved for the terrarists and two third class cars reserved for the victims. In the latter the executions look place. The floors were stained with blood. The corpses were thrown from the windows while Szamuelly sat at his dainty little writing table, in the saloon car upholstered in pink silk and ornamented with mirrors. A single gesture of his hand dealt out life or death."

Elsewhere J. and J. Thuraud wrote:

"With him (Bela Kun) twenty six commissaries composed the new government, out of the twenty six commissaries eighteen belonged to Israel. An unheard of proportion if one considers that in Hungary there were altogether 1,000,000 Israelites in a population of 22 million. Add to this that these eighteen commissaries had in their hands the effective direction of government. The eight Christian commissaries were only confederates.

"In a few weeks Bela Kun and his friends had overthrown in Hungary the age-old order and one saw rising on the banks of the Danube a new Jerusalem issued from the brain of Karl Marx and built by Jewish hands on ancient thoughts.

"For hundreds of years through all misfortunes a Messianic dream of an ideal city, where there will be neither rich nor poor, and where perfect justice and equality will reign, has never ceased to haunt the imagination of Israel. In their ghettos filled with the dust of ancient dreams, the uncultured Jews of Galicia persist in watching on moonlight nights in the depths of the sky for some sign precursor of the coming of the Messiah. Trotsky, Bela Kun and the others took up, in their turn, this fabulous dream. But, tired of seeking in heaven this kingdom of God which never comes, they have caused it to descend upon earth.

"Experience has shown that their ancient prophets were better inspired in placing if in the clouds.

The testimony of a neutral may be quoted in the following extract from a report on revolutionary activities published by a committee of the Legislature of New York, presided over by Senator Lusk:

"There was no opposition organized against Bela Kun. Like Lenin he surrounded himself with commissaries having absolute authority. Of the 32 principal commissaries 25 were Jews, a proportion nearly similar to that in Russia. The most important of them formed a Directory of five: Bela Kun alias Kohn, Bela Yaga (Weiss), Joseph Pogany (Schwartz), Sigismond Kunfi (Kunslalter), and another. Other chiefs were Alpari and Szamuelly who directed the Red Terror, as well as the executions and tortures of the bourgeoisie."

The same report publishes a list of 76 men prosecuted in America by the Committee as criminal anarchists at the beginning of 1920 and of whom the immense majority bear Jewish names.

The Jewish preponderance in the German revolutions of 1918 is not less irrefutable; there as elsewhere, they are directors and strategists of the movement. The Soviet Republic of Munich was Jewish; it is sufficient to mention some other names of leaders: Liebknecht, Rosa Luxembourg, Kurt Eisner and many others!

On the fall of the Imperial Government, the Jews at a single stroke and "en masse" seized the control of the country.

The new German cabinet was dominated by the Jews Haase (Foreign Affairs) and Landeberg. The former had as assistants the Jews Kautski, Alzech who in 1918 was not even a German citizen, and the Jews Kohn and Hertzfeld. The Jew Schiffer was Minister of Finance assisted by Bernstein. The Jew Preuss assisted by the Jew Dr. Freund occupied the Secretariat of the Interior.

It was the same in the kingdom of Prussia. The Jew Rosenfeld was at the head of the Ministry of Justice which was entirely staffed by Jews and directed by them. Hirsch had the Ministry of Interior and Simm was in charge of Finance.

The Jews Lipsinsky and Schwartz were the soul of the Government of Saxony: the Jews Talheimer and Heimann governed in Wurtemberg, Fulda in Hesse.

It is superfluous to recall the part played by the President of the Bavarian Soviet Republic the Jew Kurt Eisner, chief of the Bolshevist Revolution in Munich.

"Eleven small men have made the revolution, said Kurt Eisner in the intoxication of triumph to his colleague the Minister Auer. It seems only just to preserve a lasting memory of these small men; they are the Jews Max Lowenberg, Dr. Kurt Rosenfeld, Caspar Wollheim, Max Rothschild, Karl Arnold, Kranold, Rosenhek, Birenbaum, Reis and Kaiser.

"These ten men with Kurt Eisner van Israelovitch were at the head of the Revolutionary Tribunal of Germany. All the eleven, are Free Masons and belong to the secret Lodge no. 11 which had its abode at Munich no. 51 Briennerstrasse."

It was the same in nearly all the branches of the German administration: thus the chiefs of police of Berlin, Frankfort, Munich, Essen, were respectively the Jews Ernst, Sinzheimer, Steiner, Levy. The various branches of the soldiers and Workmen's Committees were directed by the Jews Cohen, Stern, Lowenberg, Frankel, lsraelovitch, Laubenheim, Seligsohn, Katzstein, Laufenberg, Heimann, Schlesinger, Merz, Weil.

German public opinion accuses them of being the cause of the overthrow of German social order by the spirit of Bolshevism, by the Press, and by Jewish control of the supplies and industry of the country.

So, in face of the violence of public reaction, and it would appear, acting on instructions, the Jews abandoned in course of time the principal posts in view in the government, but without relaxing anything of their hold on the real power: Finance, the Press, etc.

Judaism does not care to appear in the full light of day and if it can effectively control government, it willingly allows it to remain in the hands of the nationals of each country. It only enters into a struggle against a nation or a government when these prevent it controlling and exploiting the country.

Under these circumstances it has boasted of being able to make at will war or peace and of holding in its hands the reins of world power, of being able to make revolution or to restore order. In case of obstinate resistance, it can let loose Bolshevism.

Russia was one of these obstinate cases: hence the Bolshevist Revolution in which the Jewish race appeared at last in the full light of day.
