Sacks Asks Congress
to Stop Race Hatred
WASHINGTON—Charging that “the ugly issue of racial and re
ligious bigotry has been injected in recent months into the proceed
ings of this body” Representative Leon Sacks, (D.) Philadelphia,
called upon Congress this week to “halt this perfidious practice.”
Although he did not refer by
name to any of his colleagues in
the House, Sacks made reference
to recent statements attributed
in the Congressional Record to
Representative Robert P. Lamb
ertson, (R.) Kansas, and Repre
sentative John E. Rankin, (D.)
Mississippi. The latter’s attack
upon Jews drew dramatic Nation
wide attention when Representa
tive Michael Edelstein, (D.) New
York, dropped dead outside the
chamber after replying to Ran
kin.
Citing specifc facts of record
and quoting from correspondence
Sacks refuted assertions by Lamb
ertson that Jewish-owned radio
stations in Philadelphia had refus
ed to sell time for the speech of
Colonel Charles A. Lindbergh in
that city on May 29th, and that,
in fact, one of these stations
broadcast the Lindbergh-America
First meeting free.
Congressman Sacks, calling at
tention to the Nazi propaganda
campaigns preceding its attack
upon every country it has invad
ed, declared:
“I feel that the time is past
when vague, unsupported charges
and misleading inuendo can be
permitted to emanate from this
floor unchallenged.
“In allowing such a practice the
membership of this House not
only stultifies itself but, what is
even worse and more important,
and dupes of an alien-fostered

ARE JEWS WAR-MONGERS?
We have assembled quite a collection of obsene cartoons which
lay the charge of “war-mongering” at the door of the Jews. Os
course, this is an old, old story. The Jews are blamed for all the
illsi and aches of mankind and the anti-Semite stops at nothing in
his malicious efforts to build racial dnd religious hatred. The Nazis,
with their diabolical cleverness in
the spreading of falsehood, have
been responsible for much of the
propaganda that the Jews are
the instigators of wars. A few
historical facts may be relevant.
For centuries the greeting which
one Jew gives to another has been
“shalom” which means “peace.”
The greatest plea for peace is con
tained in the Old Testament book
of Isaiah, who longed for the day
when “ploughshares shall be
beaten into pruning hooks; nation
shall not make war against na
tion; neither shall there be war
any more.”
Almost four hundred years ago
the Italian Jew de Rossi of Mantua
wrote: “All the peoples of the
earth should know that while we,
the remnant of Israel, live in dis
persion, we are obliged, according
to the words of the Prophets and
the traditions of the Fathers, to
pray for the peace and welfare of
the state that rules over us. At
the present time above all, when
for our sins we are scattered to
the four winds, it is our duty to
supplicate Almighty God for the
peace of all the inhabitants of
the world, That no people may lift
up the sword against another . . .
and that He may remove from
their hearts all strife and hatred,
implanting instead peace in the
world: for in their peace we too
plot to create disunity, distrust
and division in our ranks.
“But should the Congress of
the United States give sanction to
this vicious campaign ? Should
the Congress of the United States
allow the pages of its official Rec
ord to be thus sullied ? Should
this Congress permit its floor to
be used as a sounding board for
such utterances? Should any in
dividual Congressman under the
cloak of immunity from civil ac
tion enjoyed by reason of mem
bership in this body, further this
Commu-Nazi scheme of division
by himself joining in attack upon
a minority people ? Should he use
his public office and the prestige
of his official position in the
cause of subverson?
“Divide and rule has ever been
the motto of conquerers and to
day’s tyrant has adapted it to his
own foreign purposes.
“The diversity of its people is
a source of America’s strength.
We must guard against its misuse
by others as a weapon to be turn
ed against us. We are the pro
duct of many races and creeds,
sprung from forebears who came
from distant lands to this haven of
liberty to establish a community
whose essential keynote is broth
erhood, under democracy and civil
liberties, men and women of every
religion, race and nationality in
the United States have learned
to live together in peace, order
and mutual respect.”
have peace.”
It was a Jew, Sir Ernest Cassel,
who strove for peace between
England and Germany, and created
the Anglo-German Foundation for
this purpose. In this work he was
supported by another great Jew
ish personality, Albert Ballin,
founder of the Germany Mercan
tile Marine, whose memory has
lately been abused by the Nazis...
