Jews and Freemasonry

Freemasonry and the Jews.

"Masonry is a Jewish institution whose history, degrees, charges, passwords and explanations are Jewish from beginning to end."—Dr. Isaac Wise.

IT has already been shewn in this pamphlet that the basis of "Speculative" masonry, its symbolism and code of ethics, is Jewish Gnosticism. The question which arises is, where does the control of Freemasonry lie to-day, and how is it controlled? To the first part we unhesitatingly answer, in the B'nai B'rith, {Literal translation, Sons of the Covenant, the covenant being that of circumcision.} and to the second, through the higher rites, especially the Rite of Mizraim.

The B'nai B'rith was founded in New York in 1843 by a number of "German" Jews, and its organisation into Lodges stamp it as a Jewish Branch of Freemasonry. In his book "Adriano Lemmi," page 225, Domenico Margiotta gives the full text of a secret treaty made in 1874 between Albert Pike, as representative of the Supreme Dogmatic Directory of the Scottish Rites, {Headquarters at Charleston, U.S.A., on the 33rd parallel of latitude.} and Armand Levi for the B'nai B'rith of America, Germany and England. The following is extracted:—

"The Supreme Dogmatic Directory of Universal Freemasonry recognises the Jewish Lodges, such as they already exist in the principal countries. The secret of the existence of the Confederation (of B'nai B'rith lodges) will rigorously be kept by those members of High Grade Masonry to whom the Supreme Dogmatic Directory will judge it advisable to make it known.

"The central headquarters of the B'nai B'rith will be at Hamburg, and the sovereign body will take the title of Sovereign Patriarchal Council. Neither the Sovereign Patriarchal Council of Hamburg, nor any lodges under its obedience, will figure on the annual reports of the Sovereign Administrative Directory; but the Sovereign Patriarchal Council will send direct to the Sovereign Dogmatic Directory a contribution representing 10 per cent. of the personal subscriptions of members of the Jewish Lodges."

When one considers that the Scottish Rite was founded by Jews in 1761; and that Albert Pike, Grand Master of the Order and Sovereign Pontiff of Universal Freemasonry, gained his position through the influence of the Jew, Moses Holbrook, a previous Grand Master, the reader will appreciate that there are grounds for saying that the B'nai B'rith is the "secret masonry which is not even known to, and the aims of which are not even suspected by, these Goy cattle, attracted by us (the Jews) into the "Show" army of masonic lodges." {The Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion, No. 11.}

The Rite of Mizraim, since it has been mentioned, deserves some explanation. It was founded in 1805 at Milan, and was introduced into France in 1816. Essentially Jewish, the rite had 90 degrees until it amalgamated with the Rite of Memphis in 1875, when the number was increased to 97. The Rite of Mizraim is principally notorious for the reputed fact that the Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion {These documents outline the plan of the Jews for world-domination, and are obtainable from the I.F.L., price 1s. 4d., post free.} were stolen from a Jewish Lodge of Mizraim in Paris in 1884 by Joseph Schorst, a Jew. {See "Waters Flowing Eastward," by L. Fry, obtainable from the I.L.L., price 3/10, post free.}

It is a damning fact that to-day (1935), one of the conditions for the withdrawal of the Jewish boycott against Germany, is the restoration of German Masonic status and property.

9. Freemasonry and Politics.

IT was stated earlier (page 10) in this pamphlet, that the Jews conceived the idea of conquering France by Freemasonry when they found that it could not be done by international wars. Let us, therefore, follow the growth of Freemasonry from the time of its foundation in England in 1717.

Freemasonry spread to France in 1730, and its early history is one of internal strife. Some sort of co-operation was, however, attained in 1766, under a new "Grande Loge Nationale de France," afterwards called the "Grand Orient." Then, just as is happening to-day, French Freemasonry was penetrated by "higher rites" in the form of a secret society notoriously known as the Illuminati, of Adam Weishaupt (1748-1830).

It is most interesting to watch the development of Jewish influence in the preparation and consummation of the French Revolution of 1789; side by side one sees the growth of Illuminism among the Gentiles and Jews with a unique directive power wielded in Berlin by the Jews, Moses Mendelssohn (1728-86, grandfather of the famous composer), Naphtali Wessely (1725-1805), and the Jewish Bankers, Daniel Itzig, Friedlander, Meyer, Cerfbeer, and the Goldsmid Brothers in London. Jewish Illuminism was called Haskalah, and was headed and directed by Moses Mendelssohn, who also inspired the leaders of Masonic Illuminism such as Adam Weishaupt, H. S. Reimarus, Lessing, Nicolai, Ch. Dohm, Mirabeau, and others. The Jew, Bernard Lazare, has himself written "There were Jews behind Weishaupt." {"L'antisémitisme," page 339.}

In 1782, a most important Masonic Congress took place at Wilhelmsbad, near Frankfurt, in which the plan of action was decided upon. The Comte de Virieu, who was present and was dismayed by what he heard there, declared on his return to Paris:—

"I shall not tell you the secrets which I have brought back, but what I believe I may tell you, is that a plot is being hatched, so well contrived and so deep, that it will be difficult for religion and for the Government not to succumb."

Three years later, a member of the Illuminati was struck by lightning at Ratisbon, whilst carrying secret documents. The police found such compromising papers on him that the Bavarian Government searched the archives of the Illuminati in Munich. A complete plan for world revolution was discovered, and copies were sent to the various European Governments, who took no notice whatever, and remained inactive. This is what the unfortunate Marie Antoinette wrote in a letter to her sister:—

"I believe that as far as France is concerned, you worry too much about Freemasonry. Here, it is far from having the significance that it may have elsewhere in Europe; here everything is open and one knows all. Then, where could the danger be?

"One might well be worried if it were a question of a political secret society. But on the contrary the Government lets it spread, and it is only that which it seems: an association, the objects of which are union and charity. One dines, one sings, one talks, which has given the King occasion to say that people who drink and sing are not suspect of organising plots. Nor is it a society of atheists, for we are told, God is on the lips of all. They are very charitable. They bring up the children of the poor and dead members, they endow their daughters. What harm is there in all that? . . . ." {Unpublished Letters of Marie-Antoinette (1864) by Comte Vogt d'Hunolstein.}

The Illuminati were suppressed in Bavaria in 1785, but Weishaupt escaped, and his revolutionary work went on in other countries as before. The result was the First French Revolution of 1789. Its promoters were the Illuminati Mirabeau, l'Abbé Grégoire, Anacharsis Clootz, etc. It has frequently been openly acclaimed by Freemasons as their work. The following is an example {See Léon de Ponçins, "Les forces secrètes de la Révolution."}:—

"During the 18th Century the glorious line of the Encyclopædists found in our temples a fervent audience, which, alone at that period, invoked the radiant motto, still unknown to the people, of 'Liberty, Equality, Fraternity.' The revolutionary seed germinated rapidly in that select company. Our illustrious brother masons, d'Alembert, Diderot, Helvetius, d'Holbach, Voltaire and Condorcet, completed the evolution of people's minds and prepared the way for a new age. And when the Bastille fell, Freemasonry had the supreme honour to present to humanity the charter which it has elaborated with love.

"It was our brother mason, Lafayette, who was the first to bring forward the proposal for a 'declaration of the natural rights of man and of the citizen living in society,' in order to make it the first chapter of the constitution.

"On 25th August, 1789, the Constituent Assembly, of which more than 300 members were Masons, finally adopted, almost word for word, such as it had for long been elaborated in the Lodges, the text of the Immortal Declaration of the rights of man . . . etc., etc."—the mason Bonnet, orator of the Convent du Grand Orient de France in 1904.

France, in 1789, counted over 2,000 lodges affiliated to the Grand Orient, with over 100,000 adepts; and it is a fact that at the outbreak of the Revolution, all the lodges suddenly became Jacobin Clubs.

The French Revolutions of 1830, 1848 and 1870 were equally the work of Judæo-Freemasonry. In the first days of the 1848 revolution, 300 Freemasons, with their banners flying over brethren of every rite representing French Freemasonry, marched to the Hotel de Ville, and there offered their banner to the Provisional Government of the Republic, proclaiming aloud the part they had just taken in the glorious Revolution. M. de Lamartine made them this answer, which was received with enthusiasm by the Lodges:—

"It is from the depths of your lodges that the ideas have emanated, first in the dark, then in the twilight, and now in the full light of day, which have laid the foundations of the Revolutions of 1789, 1830, and 1848." {Gargano, Irish Freemasons and their Foreign Brothers, page 55.}

The following is taken from the speech made by Domenico Anghera, Grand Master of the Supreme Council of Scottish Rites, when conferring on General Giuseppe Garibaldi the 33rd degree:—

" . . . . . Our first step, as builders of the new temple to the felicity of human glory, must be destruction. To destroy the present social state, we have suppressed religious teaching and the individual rights of persons. As we have overthrown the temporal power of the Pope, our most terrible and infamous enemy, by means of France and Italy, we must now break France, the strongest prop of the spiritual power. That we must do with the help of our own power and that of Germany."

This speech was made before the Franco-Prussian War of 1870. {Domenico Margiotta, "Le Culte de la Nature dans la Franc-Maçonnerie Universelle," page 45 et seq. Margiotta was a 33rd degree mason, but he published all he knew because he was not given a responsible position.} On 1st September, 1870, the Second French Empire fell at the Battle of Sedan. The International and Freemasonry seized power, calling their government "The Government of National Defence," and on 4th September the hand-picked Ministry of Freemasonry was constituted with Leon Gambetta (Jew) as Minister of the Interior. Of its eleven members, nine at least were Freemasons, three being Jews (including Adolph Cremieux, founder of the Alliance Israelite Universelle). Following this came the "Commune," famous through history for its revival of the atrocities of the First French Revolution of 1793.

Evidence of the Judæo-Masonic origin of all recent wars and revolutions could be quoted ad lib., but want of space prevents us from giving more than one more example, and we choose the Hungarian Revolution of 1918-1919. In this case the proofs are clear cut and conclusive because after the failure of Bela Kuhn's bolshevik government, the Masonic archives were seized and their contents published. {In "The Crimes of Freemasonry," by Adorjan Barcsay, and "The Secrets of a Provincial Lodge," by Joseph Palatinus.}
