    German Chancellor Adenauer on 'The Power of The Jews'

    Interview - Video

    Konrad Adenauer served as Chancellor of the German Federal Republic 1949-1963. In this interview he says (in English translation): "One should not underestimate the power of the Jews, even today, especially in America. Accordingly, and it has long been my view, after careful and conscientious consideration, I devoted all my effort to help bring about, as much as possible, a reconciliation between the Jewish people and the German people."

    The statement is astonishing, but I think better understood with the complete context.

    If you read Catholic authors from the 18th and 19th centuries, you'll find them to be surprisingly lucid on the subject of Jews, but their "solution" is always forgiveness, reconciliation and conversion to Catholicism. In the same way, most (classically) liberal discussion of Jews in the 19th century concluded that they are awful and disgusting, which means that they really need a liberal education and assimilation into "humanity". These people knew everything and did nothing.

    Kanzler der Alliierten


    A related example would be the Jewish mixling Helmut Schmidt, who became chancellor of the federal republic and later, from his retirement, he spoke against the "family reunification" policy for "guest workers" that he himself introduced. What goes on in the heads of criminals and fools will forever remain a mystery to decent people.

    ....
    Adenauer is a special case, though:



    So Konrad Adenauer was an early Zionist. That may explain a lot.

    Not so long you got Catholics being opposed to Jews converting to Catholicism as they feared infiltration.
