Page 123:

The top Communist leaders have never been as hostile to their counterparts in the West, as the rhetoric suggests. They are quite friendly to the world’s leading financiers and have worked closely with them, when it suits their purposes. As we shall see in the following section, the Bolshevik revolution actually was financed by wealthy financiers in London and New York. Lenin and Trotsky were on the closest of terms with these moneyed interests both before and after the Revolution. Those hidden liaisons have continued to this day and occasionally pop to the surface, when we discover a David Rockefeller holding confidential meetings with a Mikhail Gorbachev in the absence of government sponsorship or diplomatic purpose.

Chapter 13 – MASQUERADE IN MOSCOW

One of the greatest myths of contemporary history is that the Bolshevik Revolution in Russia was a popular uprising of the downtrodden masses against the hated ruling class of the Tsars. As we shall see, however, the planning, the leadership and especially the financing came entirely from outside Russia, mostly from financiers in Germany, Britain and the United States. Furthermore we shall see, that the Rothschild Formula played a major role in shaping these events.

This amazing story begins with the war between Russia and Japan in 1904. Jacob Schiff, who was head of the New York investment firm Kuhn, Loeb and Company, had raised the capital for large war loans to Japan. It was due to this funding that the Japanese were able to launch a stunning attack against the Russians at Port Arthur and the following year to virtually decimate the Russian fleet. In 1905 the Mikado awarded Jacob Schiff a medal, the Second Order of the Treasure of Japan, in recognition of his important role in that campaign.

Jacob Schiff was head of the New York investment firm Kuhn, Loeb and Co. He was one of the principal backers of the Bolshevik revolution and personally financed Trotsky’s trip from New York to Russia. He was a major contributor to Woodrow Wilson’s presidential campaign and an advocate for passage of the Federal Reserve Act. (p. 210)

During the two years of hostilities thousands of Russian soldiers and sailors were taken as prisoners. Sources outside of Russia, which were hostile to the Tsarist regime, paid for the printing of Marxist propaganda and had it delivered to the prison camps. Russian-speaking revolutionaries were trained in New York and sent to distribute the pamphlets among the prisoners and to indoctrinate them into rebellion against their own government. When the war was ended, these officers and enlisted men returned home to become virtual seeds of treason against the Tsar. They were to play a major role a few years later in creating mutiny among the military during the Communist takeover of Russia.

TROTSKY WAS A MULTIPLE AGENT

One of the best known Russian revolutionaries at that time was Leon Trotsky. In January of 1916 Trotsky was expelled from France and came to the United States. It has been claimed that his expenses were paid by Jacob Schiff. There is no documentation to substantiate that claim, but the circumstantial evidence does point to a wealthy donor in New York. He remained for several months, while writing for a Russian socialist paper, the Novy Mir (New World) and giving revolutionary speeches at mass meetings in New York City. According to Trotsky himself, on many occasions a chauffeured limousine was placed at his service by a wealthy friend, identified as Dr. M. In his book, My Life, Trotsky wrote:

The doctor’s wife took my wife and the boys out driving and was very kind to them. But she was a mere mortal, whereas the chauffeur was a magician, a titan, a superman! With the wave of his hand he made the machine obey his slightest command. To sit beside him was the supreme delight. When they went into a tea room, the boys would anxiously demand of their mother, “Why doesn’t the chauffeur come in?” (Leon Trotsky: My Life, New York publisher: Scribner’s, 1930, p. 277)

It must have been a curious sight to see the family of the great socialist radical, defender of the working class, enemy of capitalism, enjoying the pleasures of tea rooms and chauffeurs, the very symbols of capitalist luxury.

On March 23, 1917 a mass meeting was held at Carnegie Hall to celebrate the abdication of Nicolas II, which meant the overthrow of Tsarist rule in Russia. Thousands of socialists, Marxists, nihilists nand anarchists attended to cheer the event. The following day there was published on page two of the New York Times a telegram from Jacob Schiff, which had been read to this audience. He expressed regrets, that he could not attend and then described the successful Russian revolution as “…what we had hoped and striven for these long years”. (Mayor Calls Pacifists Traitors, The New York Times, March 24, 1917, p. 2)

In the February 3, 1949 issue of the New York Journal American Schiff’s grandson, John, was quoted by columnist Cholly Knickerbocker as saying that his grandfather had given about $20 million for the triumph of Communism in Russia. (To appraise Schiff’s motives for supporting the Bolsheviks, we must remember, that he was a Jew and that Russian Jews had been persecuted under the Tsarist regime. Consequently the Jewish community in America was inclined to support any movement, which sought to topple the Russian government and the Bolsheviks were excellent candidates for the task. As we shall see further along, however, there were also strong financial incentives for Wall Street firms, such as Kuhn, Loeb and Company, of which Schiff was a senior partner, to see the old regime fall into the hands of revolutionaries, who would agree to grant lucrative business concessions in the future in return for financial support today.)

When Trotsky returned to Petrograd in May of 1917 to organize the Bolshevik phase of the Russian Revolution, he carried $10,000 for travel expenses, a generously ample fund considering bthe value of the dollar at that time. Trotsky was arrested by Canadian and British naval personnel, when the ship, on which he was traveling, the S.S. Kristianiafjord, put in at Halifax. The money in his possession is now a matter of official record. The source of that money has been the focus of much speculation, but the evidence strongly suggests, that its origin was the German government. It was a sound investment.

Trotsky was not arrested on a whim. He was recognized as a threat to the best interests of England, Canada’s mother country in the British Commonwealth. Russia was an ally of England in the First World War, which then was raging in Europe. Anything, that would weaken Russia – and that certainly included internal revolution – would be, in effect, to strengthen Germany and weaken England. In New York on the night before his departure Trotsky had given a speech, in which he said: “I am going back to Russia to overthrow the provisional government and stop the war with Germany.” (A full report on this meeting had been submitted to the U.S. Military Intelligence. See Senate Document No. 62, 66th Congress, Report and Hearings of the Subcommittee on the Judiciary, United States Senate, 1919, Vol. II, p. 2680.) Trotsky therefore represented a real threat to England’s war effort. He was arrested as a German agent and taken as a prisoner of war.

With this in mind we can appreciate the great strength of those mysterious forces both in England and the United States, that intervened on Trotsky’s behalf. Immediately telegrams began to come into Halifax from such divergent sources, as an obscure attorney in New York City, from the Canadian Deputy Postmaster-General and even from a high-ranking British military officer, all inquiring into Trotsky’s situation and urging his immediate release. The head of the British Secret Service in America at the time was Sir William Wiseman, who, as fate would have it, occupied the apartment directly above the apartment of Edward Mandell House and who had become fast friends with him. House advised Wiseman, that President Wilson wished to have Trotsky released. Wiseman advised his government and the British Admiralty issued orders on April 21st, that Trotsky was to be sent on his way. (“Why Did We Let Trotsky Go? How Canada Lost an Opportunity to Shorten the War”, MacLeans magazine, Canada, June 1919. Also see Martin, pp. 163-164.) It was a fateful deecision, that would affect not only the outcome of the war, but the future of the entire world.

It would be a mistake to conclude, that Jacob Schiff and Germany were the only players in this drama. Trotsky could not have gone even as far as Halifax without having been granted an American passport and this was accomplished by the personal intervention of President Wilson. Professor Antony Sutton says:

President Woodrow Wilson was the fairy godmother, who provided Trotsky with a passport to return to Russia to “carry forward” the revolution… At the same time careful State Department bureaucrats, concerned about such revolutionaries entering Russia, were unilaterally attempting to tighten up passport procedures. (Antony C. Sutton, Ph. D.: Wall Street and the Bolshevik Revolution, published by Arlington House in New Rochelle, NY, 1974, p. 25)

And there were others, as well. In 1911 the St. Louis Dispatch published a cartoon by a Bolshevik named Robert Minor. Minor was later to be arrested in Tsarist Russia for revolutionary activities and in fact was himself bankrolled by famous Wall Street financiers. Since we may safely assume, that he knew his topic well, his cartoon is of great historical importance. It portrays Karl Marx with a book entitled Socialism under his arm, standing amid a cheering crowd on Wall Street. Gathered around and greeting him with enthusiastic handshakes are characters in silk hats identified as John D. Rockefeller, J.P. Morgan, John D. Ryan of National City Bank, Morgan partner George W. Perkins and Teddy Roosevelt, leader of the Progressive Party.

This cartoon by Robert Minor appeared in the St. Louis Post-Dispatch in 1911. It shows Karl Marx surrounded by enthusiastic Wall Street financiers: Morgan partner George Perkins, J.P. Morgan, John Ryan of National City Bank, John D. Rockefeller and Andrew Carnegie. Immediately behind Marx is Teddy Roosevelt, leader of the Progressive Party. (p. 211)

What emerges from this sampling of events is a clear pattern of strong support for Bolshevism coming from the highest financial and political power centers in the United States; from men, who supposedly were “capitalists” and who according to conventional wisdom should have been the mortal enemies of socialism and communism.

Nor was this phenomenon confined to the United States. Trotsky in his book My Life tells of a British financier, who in 1907 gave him a “large loan” to be repaid after the overthrow of the Tsar. Arsene de Goulevitch, who witnessed the Bolshevik Revolution firsthand, has identified both the name of the financier and the amount of the loan. “In private interviews”, he said, “I have been told that over 21 million rubles were spent by Lord [Alfred] Milner in financing the Russian Revolution… The financier just mentioned was by no means alone among the British to support the Russian revolution with large financial donations.” Another name specifically mentioned by de Goulevitch was that of Sir George Buchanan, the British Ambassador to Russia at the time. (See Arsene de Goulevitch: Czarism and Revolution, published by Omni Publications in Hawthorne, California, no date; rpt. from 1962 French edition, pp. 224, 230)

It was one thing for Americans to undermine Tsarist Russia and thus indirectly help Germany in the war, because American were not then into it, but for British citizens to do so was tantamount to treason. To understand, what higher loyalty compelled these men to betray their battlefield ally and to sacrifice the blood of their own countrymen, we must take a look at the unique organization, to which they belonged.

Pages 274-277:

ROUND TABLE AGENTS IN RUSSIA

In Russia prior to and during the revolution there were many local observers, tourists and newsmen, who reported, that British and American agents were everywhere, particularly in Petrograd, providing money for insurrection. On report said, for example, that British agents were seen handing out 25-rouble notes to the men at the Pavlovski regiment just a few hours, before it mutinied against its officers and sided with the revolution. The subsequent publication of various memoirs and documents made it clear, that this funding was provided by Milner and channeled through Sir George Buchanan, who was the British Ambassador to Russia at the time. (See de Goulevitch, p. 230) It was a repeat of the ploy, that had worked so well for the cabal many times in the past. Round Table members were once again working both sides of the conflict to weaken and topple a target government. Tsar Nicholas had every reason to believe, that since the British were Russia’s allies in the war against Germany, British officials would be the last persons on Earth to conspire against him. Yet the British Ambassador himself represented the hidden group, which was financing the regime’s downfall.

The Round Table Agents from America did not have the advantage of using the diplomatic service as cover and therefore had to be considerably more ingenious. They came not as diplomats or even as interested businessmen, but disguised as Red Cross officials on a humanitarian mission. The group consisted almost entirely of financiers, lawyers and accountants from New York banks and investment houses. They simply had overpowered the American Red Cross organization with large contributions and in effect purchased a franchise to operate in its name. Professor Sutton tells us:

The 1910 [Red Cross] fund-raising campaign for $2 million, for example, was successful only, because it was supported by these wealthy residents of New York City. J.P. Morgan himself contributed $100,000… Henry P. Davison [a Morgan partner] was chairman of the 1910 New York Fund-Raising Committee and later became chairman of the War Council of the American Red Cross… The Red Cross was unable to cope with the demands of World War I. and in effect was taken over by these New York bankers. (Sutton: Revolution, p. 72)

For the duration of the war the Red Cross had been made nominally a part of the armed forces and subject to orders from the proper military authorities. It was not clear, who these authorities were and in fact there were never any orders, but the arrangement made it possible for the participants to receive military commissions and wear the uniform of American army officers. The entire expense of the Red Cross Mission in Russia, including the purchase of uniforms, was paid for by the man, who was appointed by President Wilson to become its head, “Colonel” William Boyce Thompson.

Thompson was a classical specimen of the Round Table network. Having begun his career as a speculator in copper mines, he soon moved into the world of high finance. He

  • refinanced the American Woolen Company and the Tobacco Products Company;
  • launched the Cuban Cane Sugar Company;
  • purchased controlling interest in the Pierce Arrow Motor Car Company;
  • organized the Submarine Boat Corporation and the Wright-Martin Aeroplane Company;
  • became a director of the Chicago Rock Island & Pacific Railway, the Magma Arizona Railroad and the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company;
  • was one of the heaviest stockholders in the Chase National Bank;
  • was the agent for J.P. Morgan’s British securities operation;
  • became the first full-time director of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, the most important bank in the Federal Reserve System;
  • and of course contributed a quarter-million dollars to the Red Cross.

When Thompson arrived in Russia, he made it clear, that he was not your typical Red Cross representative. According to Hermann Hagedorn, Thompson’s biographer:

He deliberately created the kind of setting, which would be expected of an American magnate: established himself in a suite in the Hotel de l’Europe, bought a French limousine, went dutifully to receptions and teas and evinced an interest in objects of art. Society and the diplomats, noting that here was a man of parts and power, began to flock about him. He was entertained at the embassies, at the houses of Kerensky’s ministers. It was discovered, that he was a collector and those with antiques to sell fluttered around him offering him miniatures, Dresden china, tapestries, even a palace or two. (Hermann Hagedorn: The Magnate: William Boyce Thompson and His Time, published by Reynal & Hitchcock, New York, 1935, pp. 192-93)

When Thompson attended the opera, he was given the imperial box. People on the street called him the American Tsar. And it is not surprising, that according to George Kennan, “He was viewed by the Kerensky authorities as the ‘real’ ambassador of the United States.” (George F. Kennan: Russia Leaves the War: Soviet-American Relations, 1917-1920 published by Princeton University Press in Princeton, NJ, 1956, p. 60)

It is now a matter of record, that Thompson syndicated the purchase on Wall Street of Russian bonds in the amount of ten million roubles. (Hagedorn, p. 192) In addition, he gave over two million roubles to Aleksandr Kerensky for propaganda purposes inside Russia and with J.P. Morgan gave the rouble equivalent of one million dollars to the Bolsheviks for the spreading of revolutionary propaganda outside of Russia, particularly in Germany and Austria. (Sutton: Revolution, pp. 83, 91.) It was the agitation made possible by this funding, that led to the abortive German Spartacus Revolt of 1918. (See article “W.B. Thompson, Red Cross Donor, Believes Party Misrepresented” in the Washington Post of Feb. 2, 1918) A photograph of the cablegram from Morgan to Thompson advising, that the money had been transferred to the National City Bank branch in Petrograd, is included in this book.

AN OBJECT LESSON IN SOUTH AFRICA

At first it may seem incongruous, that the Morgan group would provide funding for both Kerensky and Lenin. These men may have both been socialist revolutionaries, but they were miles apart in their plans for the future and in fact were bitter competitors for control of the new government. But the tactic of funding both sides in a political contest by then had been refined by members of the Round Table into a fine art. A stunning example of this occurred in South Africa during the outset of the Boer War in 1899.

The Genocidal Jewish Supremacist Jacob H. SCHIFF

Christopher Jon Bjerknes

http://www.jewishracism.com

http://www.jewishracism.blogspot.com

The German-Jewish banker Jacob H. Schiff was the Rothschild syndicate’s most prominent representative in their genocidal war on the Russian People. Schiff implemented the Rothschild’s plan to genocide the Russian People and steal the wealth of the Russian nation. The Rothschilds and Schiffs had shared a residence in Frankfurt, Germany. The Schiffs are still prominent figures in America.

Russia supported the Union in the American Civil War and subverted the Rothschilds’ plan to divide America into two opposing nations which the bankers could perpetually pit against one another, as they had done to the nations of Europe. Russia was a tested and proven ally of the United States which defended America against European intrusion into the Civil War.

As Jewish bankers again take aim at Russia and America, we ought to recognize the danger of the situation for the Russian People, and the American People. History teaches us that Jewish leaders are capable of treachery and genocidal murder, the scale of which can only be understood by examining the facts. Many Americans have wondered how the tragedy of the Soviet Union and the Red Terror could possibly have occurred, when the World could so easily have stopped the criminals, so few were they.

History is repeating itself. Ask yourself what you and your government, your neighbors, your press, your church. . . what is anyone doing to stop the Jewish “revolutions” being prepared for America and Russia?

The attempted Russian Revolution of 1905 was widely known at the time to have been the work of Jews, and many Jews took great pride in that fact. For example, The Maccabean of London wrote in an article entitled “A Jewish Revolution” on page 250 in November of 1905,

“The revolution in Russia is a Jewish revolution, a crisis in Jewish history. It is a Jewish revolution because Russia is the home of about half the Jews of the world, and an overturning of its despotic government must have a very important influence on the destinies of the millions living there and on the many thousands who have recently emigrated to other countries. But the revolution in Russia is a Jewish revolution also because Jews are the most active revolutionists in the Tsar’s empire.”—As quoted in: L. Fry, Waters Flowing Eastward: The War Against the Kingship of Christ, TBR Books, Washington, D. C., (2000), p. 40.

William Eleroy Curtis delivered an address to the National Geographic Society on 14 December 1906, in which he stated, among other things,

“THE VENGEANCE OF THE JEWS

Perhaps these reforms are the cause of the present tranquility, because the revolutionary leaders nearly all belong to the Jewish race and the most effective revolutionary agency is the Jewish Bund, which has its headquarters at Bialystok, where the massacre occurred last June. The government has suffered more from that race than from all of its other subjects combined. Whenever a desperate deed is committed it is always done by a Jew, and there is scarcely one loyal member of that race in the entire Empire. The great strike which paralyzed the Empire and compelled the Czar to grant a constitution and a parliament was ordered and managed by a Jew named Krustaleff, president of the workingmen’s council, a young man only thirty years old. He was sent to the penitentiary for life, and had not been behind the bars more than three weeks when he organized and conducted a successful strike of the prison employees.

Russo-Japanese War – financed by Jacob Schiff

Posted on by David

Without lifting a gun, Jacob H. Schiff  crushed the Czarist army and plunged its  finest battleships down to a watery grave!  Schiff, a direct descendant of the  Maharam Schiff, was born in Frankfurt  in 5607/1847. Although he studied at  Rav Samson Raphael Hirsch’s religious  school, it can hardly be said that he kept  to his alma mater’s standards once he  had left for the US at the age of eighteen.  Instead, he devoted his energies to high  fi nance and became managing director of  Kuhn, Loeb & Co., one of the two most  influential private international banking  houses of the Western Hemisphere.

At the turn of the last century, he  wielded his powerful influence against  Czar Nicholas II after the eruption of  the Russo-Japanese War in 5664/1904. It  was largely thanks to Schiff’s efforts that  the struggle ended in a crushing defeat  over Russia, leading Russia’s Minister  of Finance to declare in 5671/1911, “Our  government will never forgive or forget  what the Jew Schiff did to us… He was  one of the most dangerous men we had  against us abroad.”

BLACKMAIL 

Schiff had an iron scruple when it came  to lending money. He could not tolerate  Czarist Russia’s inhuman persecution  of its Jewish subjects and believed that  no Jew should lend the Czar a cent. He  harbored a withering contempt for the  world of Jewish finance that lent Russia  money during the 5650s/1890s with no  strings attached. Jewish finance should  have demanded better conditions for  Russia’s Jews, he criticized. “But, instead,  [it] closed its eye to make a despicable  profit, and rendered service to the Russian  government, selling her Jewish subjects  for a few pieces of silver.”

Then came the opportunity of a  lifetime. In February 5664/1904, Schiff  invited a number of Jewish communal  leaders to a meeting in his home.  “Within 72 hours, war will break out  between Japan and Russia,” he informed  the gathering. “The question has been  presented to me of undertaking a loan to  Japan. I would like to get your views as to  what effect my undertaking of this would  have upon the Jewish people in Russia.”  Whatever they told him, Schiff left the  meeting convinced that his best course  was to threaten Russia with financial  blackmail. He would convince Russia that  mistreating Jews came at disastrous cost.  Through his widespread influence, he  made it difficult for Russia to raise loans  in the US at even three to four times the  normal profit.

Desperate, Russia’s anti-Semitic  Minister of the Interior, Vyacheslav von  Plehve, let it be known via proxy that  he was willing to confer with Schiff and  formulate some kind of deal.

Schiff wrote back:  “June 21, 1904… I must repeat… that  the unwillingness of American money  markets to take up Russian financing…  are due purely to the disgust that is felt  here against a system of government  which permits such things as the recent  Kishinev episode [a major pogrom] and  the legal discrimination which is the order  of the day in Russia…

“If his Excellency von Plehve really  wants me to come… he must not say… that  he isprepared to see me; he must say that  he wishes to see me – and the invitation  must be addressed to me directly. The only  condition which I must lay down is this: I  cannot enter a country which admits me  only by special consideration and which is  closed to all members of the Jewish faith  except by special dispensation. If I am to  come to Russia, the existing restriction  against the issuing of passports for foreign  Jews must first be abolished…”

The meeting never took place. When  Russian Jews objected to Schiff’s strategy,  well cognizant of the fact that it might  backfire onto their heads, Schiff brushed  their objections aside with a spurious  argument: “It is simply one more case of  the experience which Moses had in Egypt  when he intervened for the Children of  Israel and tried to stir them up, ‘but they  hearkened not unto him, for anguish of  spirit and for bondage (Shemos 6:9).’”  Schiff also helped organize the  distribution of revolutionary literature to  Russian POWs held in Japan.

JAPANESE  DESPERATION 

Besides stymieing Russia’s finances,  Schiff actively supported the Japanese  cause. Baron Korekiyo Takahashi, the  Japanese official in charge of selling war  bonds, was desperate. New York bankers  showed no interest in investing in Japan’s  war and even in Britain, Japan’s official  ally, the pickings were minimal.

In his diary, Takahashi complains  how the fantastically wealthy Rothschild  House refused to contribute a penny:

“The House of Rothschild cannot come  in openly during the war. If they did, it  will be known… to St. Petersburg. They  cannot do anything that might inflict  oppression on the Jews by the Russian  Government.”

Then Takahashi struck gold at a London  dinner. Who was sitting next to him but  Jacob H. Schiff! Takahashi poured out his  heart to the powerful financier, informing  him that Japan needed at least five million  pounds sterling (thirty million dollars) to  continue her life-and-death struggle. And  much more would be needed later on.

His appeal fell on willing ears. Only  a few weeks earlier, Schiff had written to  Rothschild claiming that the only hope  for Russian Jews was for Russia to suffer  an upheaval resulting from the Russo-  Japanese War. Here, at last, was his golden  opportunity to make this happen.

“A system of government… capable  of such cruelties and outrages at home  as well in foreign relations must be  overhauled from the foundations up in  the interests of the oppressed race, the  Russian people, and the world at large…  and taught an object lesson,” he told the  Japanese statesman.

Schiff agreed to set US financial  machinery in motion and raise the required  funds. “[It was not] so much [because  of] my father’s interest in Japan,” his  daughter, Frieda, explained later, “but,  rather, his hatred of Imperial Russia and  its anti-Semitic policies that prompted  him to take this great financial risk.”  He would show Russia that the dollar  was mightier than the sword.

JAPANESE WAR BONDS 

As good as his word, Schiff proceeded  to spur major US banks and insurance  companies into action. After subscriptions  to the Japanese bonds opened at 10:00am,  May 12, 5664/1904, the bonds sold like  wildfire, and even more so after Japan  began overwhelming the Russian army on  land and at sea.

People were almost breaking down  doors to get their hands on Japanese  bonds. The New York Times of March 1,  5665/1905, describes scenes of market  madness.

“When the office force arrived for work,  the lower corridor outside the doors of the  banking house was jammed with people  so that it was hardly possible to reach the  elevators. Outside the portal, there was  a double line of people extending across  William Street and two or three doors up  Pine Street.”

“An employee reported: ‘They fairly  tore us to pieces… Until 11 or 12 o’clock,  we had not time to breath.’”

Altogether, of the total of 410 million  dollars raised by Japan to win its war, 180  million dollars was raised in the US.  After Japan’s victory in 5665/1905,  Schiff was granted diplomatic honors  in Britain and Japan. The British king,  Edward VII, invited him for a luncheon at  Buckingham Palace. Then he was invited  by the Japanese emperor to personally  receive one of Japan’s highest honors, the  Second Order of the Sacred Treasure.

“It is the first time the Emperor has  invited a foreign private citizen to have  a repast at the palace; heretofore, only  foreign princes having been thus honored,”  he boasted.

Schiff and a large entourage of  relatives, friends and servants set off in  four private rail coaches to San Francisco  and sailed off to Japan by liner, pausing  briefly en route to visit Queen Liliuokalani  of Honolulu. Later, during a festive lunch  at the Japanese Imperial Palace, Schiff  surprised his royal hosts by lifting his  glass in a toast, “To the Emperor, first in  war, first in peace, first in the hearts of  his countrymen.” In Japan, toasts were  unknown.

He made a second mistake by casually  remarking to Baron Takahashi’s fifteenyear-  old daughter, Wakiko, “You must  come and visit us in New York some  time.” The Japanese baron understood  that his daughter had been invited to stay  with the Schiffs for three years! Schiff’s  wife was less than delighted.

“Mother believes it somewhat of  a responsibility we are undertaking in  assuming charge of the responsibility  of the girl and her education,” Schiff  recorded at the time, “but we have decided  to assume the responsibility.”

IN RETROSPECT 

In retrospect, Schiff’s personal duel  with the Czar of Russia probably caused  more harm than good. The Jews were  targeted as scapegoats for his defeat and  suffered a series of violent pogroms. In  addition, Schiff’s powerful influence  reinforced the “Jewish International  Conspiracy” myth, portrayed in the  infamous “Protocols of the Elders of  Zion” that the Czar’s secret police had  disseminated in 5663/1903.

Although Schiff’s efforts during the  Japanese war and later during World War I  helped precipitate the Russian Revolution,  this only led to a repression far worse than  anything the Jews ever suffered under the  Czars.

Years later, it seemed that Schiff’s  private war might have a positive spinoff  after all. During the 5690s/1930s,  when Germany began deporting tens  of thousands of Jews, the Japanese  remembered the great power the Jew  Schiff had wielded during their war and  considered that it might be a good idea to  have people like him living in Japan. This  gave rise to the Fugu Plan that might have  saved hundreds of thousands of Jews.

The Fugu (Puffer Fish) is regarded as  a rare delicacy in Japan. The only problem  is that its flesh contains deadly poison that  has to be carefully prepared by an expert,  leaving only enough poison to provide  a pleasant tingling sensation; inexpertly  prepared Fugu fish paralyzes and kills.  In the same vein, the Japanese believed  that although the Jews were a valuable  asset, like the delicious Fugu fish, they  needed to be watched carefully in order to  keep them from putting their “Protocols  of the Elders of Zion” plots into action.  Plans were made to create autonomous  Jewish settlements in the Far East. For  various reasons, the Fugu Plan collapsed.  In summation, there is little doubt  that Schiff’s strong-arm tactics were  an irresponsible, risky gamble in  contravention to the navi’s advice in times  of adversary: “Go, My nation, come into  your rooms and close your doors after  you. Hide for a little moment until anger  passes” (Yeshayahu 26:20).

The Atrocity Propaganda Campaign against Russia

There was an atrocity propaganda campaign against Russian gentiles at the time, similar to the atrocity propaganda campaign against the Germans some 20 years later. “Six million Jews” is already being mentioned as early as 1915. With their control of the printing presses, the Jews were able to control the flow of information to the public and mold public attitudes to the events going on in Russia at the time. The press reported sympathetically on the Jews who were waging revolution in Russia, often involving violence and theft and sabotage. They were the “antifa” of that time.

Below is from papermacheworld.wordpress.com

Mention of “six million Jews” appear in nine newspapers from 1915-1938

And the “European Holocaust” is mentioned in one newspaper, in 1936.

This is from the video:
