Why Persecute Jews?
It is not our purpose in venturing to
write this article to create race-antipathy
in the least, but the Editor is
away this week and tihe Assoicate
Editor will pass it up to the readers as
anere innocent ramblings. Somehow,
or somehow else, we have sympathy
for a down-trodden race known as
Hebrews, or Jews. We have not a
drop of Jewish blood in our veins; we
are not connected by blood or mar- i
riage with the Jews, by any near or j
distant kinsman. We owe 110 Jew a j
dollar and no Jew owes us. Among j
all our personal or intimate friends !
we cannot name one Jew. We speak, |
therefore, from the vantage grounds of j
absolute independence and impartiali- j
ty concerning this "splendid race," !
splendid in patience, endurance,
brotherly love, sagacity, temperance,
Splendid in their intellectual resources j
and splendid in an inflexible adherence
to other Mosaic ideals.
We presume that there are many
here in Lexington county prejudiced
against the Hebrews, but if we want
an aristocrary of blood and birOi, the
Jews are the purest blooded people
and have the best descent upon the
face of the earth. Neither
Mirabeau in the French As- j
sembly. nor Patrick Henry in j
the House of Burgesses, nor Sam
Adams in the Colonial days of Amer
ica, ever said a more thrilling thing j
than did Benjamin Disraeli?after- <
ward Beaconfield?in reply to O'Connel
in the English Commons, who
charged Jhim and was scoffing Disraelli
for being a Jew," Yes," said Disraelli.
"I am a Jew, and when the ancestors
of 1 the right honorable gentlemen
were brutal savages on an unknown
island mine were priests in the temple."
Was this not a scathing, excoriting
and withal a magnificent statement? (
Who in the light of human history are
the aristocracy if not the Jews? Do
we seek an aristocracy of talent? The
great -church historian Neander, Napoleon's
marshals, Souit and Messena,
Gambette, the brilliant cynic Heine,
were Jews. If you want an aristocracy
of wealth let it be remembered that
iiae combined financal power of the
Jews in Europe and America can prevent
the floatng of any national loan
which, may be put upon the market of
the world. The world's list of great
solders, authors, musicians, painters,
poetSy philosophers, and financiers
contain many, very many Jews.
We. give pictures of Gentile couples
in the fuss, entering a Gentle church,
the "beautiful" bride leanng on the
arm of her "dad" attired in white
satin en train embellished with "point
lace" and carrying orange blossoms,

great national political parties here in j

politicians denouncing Jews, and yet,

There is no sweeter and more blissful
. domestic life on earth than is
found in Jewish homes. In reverence
and honor for parents, in self sacrific
ing love among the children, unity,
peace and concord, the average Jewish'
family is simply ideal. The beauty
and fidelity of Jewish ^yomen is perfect
and among the wealthy and educated
Jews, the exquisite refinement
of Jewesses, their culture and high
breeding blended with a sort of oriental
race and dignity put them among
the most charming in the world.
Convert the Jews? Yes, but meanwhile,
let us convert some of our
church: goes to genuine Christianity.
Suppress them? A score of Russian
czars cannot do it. Every people in
the world has tried it and failed. They
have outlived the Tudors and Plantagentes,
the Romanoffs, the tyranny of
Spain, the dynasties of F ce, Charlemagne,
Constantine, the Geasars, the
Babylonian kings and Egyptian
It was God's own race for fbur
thousand years and the awful persecution
it has survived for two thousand
more stamps it as a race still
bearing some misterious relaton to
the eternal. The belief that the Jew
is more dishonest than the Gentile is
half falsehood, two halves nonsense
and three halves prejudice. This j
anti-Jewish feeling is un-American, '
un-Christian and inhuman, and no man !
who believes in the universal fatherhood
of God and the universal brother- i
hood of man can share it. We read i
in Holy Writ that "Vengeance is
T ill 4-Vl 'va ooifn fVio
mine, i win tuwav
Lord." So if the Jew is in error in
his religious views it is none of our
business to persecute him. As well
persecute an unrepentant Gentile.
It is believed by those who are not
well read on the Bible that the Jews
crucified Christ. If this is suTe, Christ
was a false prophet and the New Testament
is absolutely without foundation.
This feeling seems to be born
of the devil. Truth is mighty and
