"Does it not occur to you that the Jews, even without your help, are citizens of a state mightier and more powerful than any of yours, and that if you in addition give them citizenship in your own states, they will trample your other citizens under foot?" With this warning, based on deep historic insight, Fichte addressed the German nation a hundred years ago. His words were in vain: ignoring the potential force possessed by a homogenous race, bemused by the slogans of human equality, all parliaments adopted the dogma of infinite tolerance. Tolerance toward the alien, the hostile, and the aggressive was seen as a highly humanitarian achievement, but was, as the history of the nineteenth and especially of our present century shows, merely an ever greater abandoning of ourselves.
The gullible European has only too credulously listened to these temptations, sung to the lyrics of the siren's song - freedom, justice, brotherhood. The fruits of this subversion are apparent today. They are so nakedly apparent that even the most unbiased person, a person who has no idea of the necessary historical relationships, must become aware that he has placed his confidence in crafty and glib leaders, who intended not his good, but the destruction of all laboriously acquired civilisation, all culture. The proof, grown to a bloody reality, can be found in the Russian revolution, which has been passed over in silence by the liberal or Jewish papers in striking contrast to their other doings. And during the war the newspapers of the right suppressed the clear facts of the matter in order to protect their inner front. This resoluteness came too late; in Germany too the Jews had become the leading enemies of the Germanic ideal.
- Alfred Rosenberg, "The Russian Jewish Revolution", May 24, 1919
