"The Jewish Personality and the Israeli Actions"
December 19, 2000
With the renewed violence between Israel and the Palestinians, and following
the withdrawal of Egypt's ambassador to Israel, anti-Semitic articles have
recently increased in the government-sponsored Egyptian press.
A recent example is the two-part series in the weekly October titled "The
Jewish personality and the Israeli Action.," The author, Gen. (Res.) Hassan
Sweilem discusses at length the "Jewish personality." Following are excerpts
from the series:
"Historians, race-studies professors and sociologists agree that humanity,
throughout its long history, has never known a race such as the Jewish race
which so many bad qualities base and loathsome have been gathered."
"The Jews had a quality which distinguished them from others: whenever they
gathered in a particular place and felt comfortable there, they turned the
place into a den of evil, corruption, incitement to internal strife and the
spreading of wars. The Jews took advantage of the lack of attention by the
people and rulers to the plots and traps designed by the Jews."
"When the peoples felt endangered by the Jews' plots and traps, they took
revenge and punished them in different ways, like annihilation, expulsion,
captivity and exile. The situation came to a point where Diaspora became a
characteristic of Jewish history to this very day. This can be clearly
ancient history from the punishments meted out to the Jews by the
the Assyrians, the Ancient Egyptians, the Romans, the Greeks and the
since the 8th century BC, let alone what came to be known as 'the Babylonian
Exile,' which lasted one hundred years."
The Middle Ages
"In the Middle Ages this phenomenon reoccurred, when the Jews tried to
the Byzantine State, and in the year of 483, Caesar Justinianus committed
massacres of Jews throughout the Empire."
The Modern Age
"The phenomenon reoccurred in Europe: the king of France expelled the Jews
England in 1253, when he discovered their dangerous plots against France. In
England, the Jews built an immense financial empire that controlled the
economy, but when King Edward I understood the danger in this situation, he
enacted 'special laws' for the Jews in order to limit their influence. They
rebelled against these rules and he had to expel them. In 1306 all European
countries, without exception, followed suit. This came to be known as 'The
great exile of the Jews of Europe.' In 1492, Spanish courts of Inquisition
were established to try the Jews."
"When the Jews returned to Europe in the fifteenth century, they resumed
plots and attempts to take control of these countries' economies. In 1744,
decision was made to expel them once again. They gathered in the Baltic
region. As for the Jews who remained in the European states, the local
authorities gathered them into special ghettos to protect themselves from
Jews' bad conduct."
"A reexamination of the Crusades reveals that the crusader-armies that
along the basin of the Rhine River, searched for Jewish communities and
exterminated them (to become closer to God). When they entered Jerusalem on
July 14, 1099, the first thing they did was to gather the Jews of Jerusalem
one of the churches and burn them. When the Muslims, headed by Omar Ibn
Al-Khattab, conquered Jerusalem in 636, the Patriarch Sofronius asked only
thing from our master Ibn Al-Khattab: that no Jews remain in Jerusalem and
none enter the city. The Caliph Omar fulfilled this request, and it entered
history as 'The Pact of Omar.'"
"The first American presidents warned against the danger of Jewish hegemony
over American life. First and foremost was President George Washington who
warned in 1788: 'It is troubling that the [American] nation has not purified
its land from these pests. The Jews are the enemies of America's well-being
and the corrupters of its prosperity.' Further, [President] Washington
about the Jews: 'They operate against us in a way much more effective than
enemy's armies. They endanger our liberty and our interests one hundred
more than the enemy. It is most troubling that the states have not begun
ago to follow them, because they are a plague [threatening] society.'"
"American President Benjamin Franklin [sic], said in his speech to the 1789
Constitutional Convention in Philadelphia: 'A great danger threatens the
States the Jewish danger. When the Jews settle down [in the US), we will
discover that they are weakening the determination of the people, shaking up
the ethics of trade and establishing a government within a government. When
they meet resistance, they will suffocate the nation economically.'"
"Thus, Franklin pointed to the attempts by the Jewish money-lenders to
subjugate the Bank of America to the Bank of England, that was directed by
Rothschild. Later, Franklin continued his warnings to members of the
Convention: 'If constitutional law does not deny the Jews the right to
immigrate to the US, they will, in less than one hundred years, pour into
nation in immense numbers, like locusts. They will take control and destroy
us. In less than 200 years, our sons will be made field-workers in order to
provide food for the Jews, who will sit in their mansions and rub their
with glee.' Franklin recalled an important fact, that the Jews' morals and
character cannot be changed: 'Their mentality will continue to be different
from ours even if they live among us for ten generations. A leopard cannot
change its spots. They are a danger to this country, and they must be
through this Constitutional Convention.'"
In the second part of the series, Sweilem wrote: "Many are the bad and
loathsome traits in the Jewish personality. There is no difference between
yesterday's Jew and those of today, or between the Jewish and the Israeli
personality, as some claim. This is because Israel, as a state, is nothing
a receiving vessel for all of the Jews in the world. Zionism is the
and colonialist aspect of the Jewish faith. Therefore, an investigation of
traits of the Jewish personality, in order to defend ourselves from it, is a
fundamental step in our war against it, in the defense of our existence, and
for future generations."
Jewish Holocaust Lies
Sweilem delineates in his articles a list of "Jewish characteristics," such
"violation of agreements," "constant paranoia" and more. When he gets to
characteristic of "reliance on lies as a means to achieving goals," for
example, he writes: "One of the characteristics that is deeply-rooted in the
Jewish personality is manifested in the rule 'lie, lie and lie again, until
people believe you, and then you will believe it yourself.'"
"This characteristic is revealed in their lie regarding the Holocaust, which
they claim was carried out by Nazi Germans during WWII against six million
Jews. This is a huge lie which they managed to market around the world.
Through this lie, they extorted most of the world's countries, even though
have proved that [the Holocaust] was not practically possible. Today,
in Europe may doubt the Holocaust or accuse the Jews of extortion, without
finding himself in jail, according to the law that was imposed by the
