On 18 October 2010 National Vanguard posted the remarkable speech made by Benjamin H. Freedman at the Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C. in 1961. Kevin Alfred Strom’s introduction reads:
Benjamin H. Freedman was one of the most intriguing and amazing individuals of the 20th century. Mr. Freedman, born in 1890, was a successful Jewish businessman of New York City who was at one time the principal owner of the Woodbury Soap Company.
He broke with organized Jewry after World War II, and spent the remainder of his life and the great preponderance of his considerable fortune, at least 2.5 million dollars, exposing the Jewish power structure which dominates the United States.
Mr. Freedman’s testimony is especially important because he had been an insider at the highest levels of Jewish organizations and Jewish machinations to gain power over our nation. Mr. Freedman was personally acquainted with Bernard Baruch, Samuel Untermyer, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, Joseph Kennedy, John F. Kennedy, and many more movers and shakers of our times.
This speech was given before a patriotic audience in 1961 at the Willard Hotel in Washington, D.C., on behalf of Conde McGinley’s patriotic newspaper of that time, Common Sense. Though in some minor ways this wide-ranging and extemporaneous speech has become dated, Mr. Freedman’s essential message to us — his warning to the West — is more urgent than ever before.
The speech has become something of a classic in the history of Zionism and is well worth consideration. The post entitled, A Jewish Defector Warns America, can be accessed here.
As an end note Strom makes the statement:
Subsequent research has shown that the “Khazar hypothesis,” i.e., Freedman’s and Arthur Koestler’s idea that Ashkenazi Jews are almost entirely of Khazar descent, is wildly exaggerated. For example, Science News for October 3, 1998 stated “Wider genetic studies of diverse present day Jewish communities show a remarkable genetic cohesiveness. Jews from Iran, Iraq, Yemen, North Africa and European Ashkenazim all cluster together with other Semitic groups, with their origin in the Middle East. A common geographical origin can be seen for all mainstream Jewish groups studied. This genetic research has clearly refuted the Khazar story — Khazars: a pre-10th century Turko-Asian empire which reportedly converted en masse to Judaism. Researchers compared the DNA signature of the Ashkenazi Jews against those of Turkish-derived people, and found no correspondence. …The DNA tests results support the hypothesis that the paternal gene pools of Jewish communities from Europe, North Africa and the Middle East descended from a common Middle Eastern ancestral population, and suggest that most Jewish communities have remained relatively isolated from neighboring non-Jewish communities during and after the Diaspora.”
The following is my reply to this disclaimer from Strom:
Just some thoughts regarding the Khazar DNA research:
All the research really shows is that the Ashkenazim Jews have no Turkish DNA markers – in the male genome (the tests are generally made using the Y-chromosome). Most of the studies recognize a ‘common Middle Eastern’ ancestry, but it doesn’t conclusively define which or where, or when it became prevalent in the DNA. Steven Bray’s study, published by PNAS in 2010, actually revealed that there is a higher European admixture than predicted from previous Y-chromosome analyses – the Ashkenazim Jews have not remained as isolated from non-Jewish communities as former studies (conducted primarily through Jewish agencies) have suggested. Bray’s study calculated that the amount of European admixture in the AJ [Ashkenazim Jew] population to be 35 to 55%. Previous estimates of admixture levels have varied widely depending on the chromosome or specific locus being considered, with studies of Y-chromosome haplogroups estimating from 5 to 23% European admixture.
What Bray’s study shows is that European Jews are pretty much a sort-of mongrel people whose genetic makeup reflects their history as a nomadic tribe. Because there is no Turkish markers in the DNA, and a common Middle Eastern ancestry, as proposed by the other studies, this does not mean that those ‘Jews’ of European extraction are any way descendants from the legendary Biblical tribes of Israel. All it shows is that their genes display a connection to the Near East.
It is preposterous for anyone to argue that the Ashkenazim Jews did not originate in what is known as the Khazar Empire. Whether they were of Turkish ancestry or not does not erase their well documented history in the region. One could even argue that it was their presence in the first place that manipulated King Bulan into converting the empire to Judaism in 740 AD. The Turks ruled Khazaria, but there were numerous ethnicities in the region. Most historians recognize the role of the Slavic Judaising Subbotniks in the conversion. The Subbotniks were the original Zionists. When, in the 19th century, thousands of Subbotniks decided to emigrate to Ottoman Palestine they faced great opposition from the Jewish communities at large when attempting to intermarry as they were not considered ‘real Jews’ according to Halakha law. They Hebraized their surnames to assimilate. Within a short period, the descendants of Subbotnik Jews who arrived in Ottoman Palestine in the late 19th century had completely blended and inter-married into the wider Jewish population of Palestine.
This is the pattern, and it goes a long way in explaining why there is such a diverse reading in Ashkenazim Jewish DNA. The recent DNA studies are just one more tool that the Zionists have used to legitimize their illegal land grab and occupation of Palestine. While Freedman did not have access to the information we have today, he was merely relating what the Jews themselves knew and believed for centuries. Today’s Jews are descendants of a nomadic tribe who have for millennia searched for identity in the host countries they sought for refuge after their practices forced them out from one to another over and over again.
What should be noted here is that the Zionist occupation of Palestine – and the, more often than not, nefarious acts of its proponents – is not a program supported by the whole of world Jewry. There are a number of Jewish thinkers and organizations who strongly disapprove of this ideology, Neturia Karta, Intl being the most prominent. It is interesting to note that the ADL – and other groups and individuals which are on the same page – are quick to demonize and smear these thoughtful Jews as being ‘anti-Semites’ or worse – never mind that these these victims of the smear are actually Jews dedicated to the faith of their fathers.
Just as it is not the whole of world Jewry who support the Zionist agenda, so it is that not all Zionists are Jews either. But that is the subject matter for a different discussion. Benjamin H. Freedman was an insider who tried to let the world know of the evils of these wretched goons – great cudos should be given to him and to all the Fearless Freedom Fighters like him.
