Was it these world controllers that led Italy into me straggler "Could absurdity reach a greater height? "If it be true that the international bankers and casitaiists are Janra alone, if it be true that they wield a world power that controls govern -meats and nations, wars and peace and economic law, can the author of these articles in the Dearborn inde pendent explain why it Is that no more than halt the 1S.MM.0M Jews in the world are still suffering not only, persecatioa and oppression, bat the bitterest penury and starvation?
