I do not subscribe to or support, directly or indirectly, any agitation which would promote antagonism against my Jewish fel low-citizens. I consider that the hate-mongering prevalent for some time in this country against the Jews, is of distinct disservice to our country, and to the peace and wel fare of humanity.
