Preface by Moissaye J Olgin dated October 26, 1917

[I include this extract to show how the word 'exterminate' was used throughout the 20th century by Jews. Most of this book was, presumably, finished a number of years before the 'Russian Revolution'-RW     [Case Against Judaism] | Home Page]
Pp. 369-370: [Great] Russia includes a great number of non-Russian nationalities: Poles, Jews, Finns, Letts, Lithuanians, Tartars, Caucasians. Those nationalities, suffering more than the native Russians under the yoke of autocracy, had manifested a comparatively deeper revolutionary excitement and had fought the most determined revolutionary battles. Now the victorious autocracy made them the object of its special attention. The "strangers" were declared enemies of the Russian people. Their intention, it was asserted, had been the dismemberment of great Russia and the enthralling of the Russian masses. The people, therefore, must fight against those destroyers, it was argued. The government ought to help to save Russia from her internal menace.
      A war of extermination was declared against all small nationalities, especially against the Jews, who had been most conspicuous in the revolution. Polish schools were proscribed. The Polish language was placed under ban. Finland was robbed of the major part of its autonomy, the law of June 17, 1910, exempting from the jurisdiction of the Finnish Parliament, all affairs which related to the empire at large; the Russian imperial Duma and the Russian government were made supreme legislators of Finland in the most vital problems. As to the Jews, there was hardly any measure that had not been tried before to hurt their dignity and make their life intolerable. The government could only vary its old measures, making them more ingenious, more subtle, more humiliating... This was found in the blood accusation.. [Mendel Bailis case..]
