- The story of the slaves
in America begins with Christopher Columbus. His voyage to America was
not financed by Queen Isabella, but by Luis de Santangelo, who advanced
the sum of 17,000 ducats (about 5,000 pounds-today equal to 50,000 pounds)
to finance the voyage, which began on August 3, 1492.
- Columbus was accompanied by five 'maranos' (Jews who
had foresworn their religion and supposedly became Catholics), Luis de
Torres, interpreter, Marco, the surgeon, Bemal, the physician, Alonzo
de la Calle and Gabriel Sanchez (1).
- Gabriel Sanchez, abetted by the other four Jews, sold
Columbus on the idea of capturing 500 Indians and selling them as slaves
in Seville, Spain, which was done. Columbus did not receive any of the
money from the sale of the slaves, but he became the victim of a conspiracy
fostered by Bemal, the ship's doctor. He, Columbus, suffered injustice
and imprisonment as his reward. Betrayed by the five maranos (Jews) whom
he had trusted and helped. This, ironically, was the beginning of slavery
in the Americas (2).
- The Jews were expelled from Spain on August 2, 1492,
and from Portugal in 1497. Many of these Jews emigrated to Holland, where
they set up the Dutch West Indies Company to exploit the new world.
- In 1654, the first Jew, Jacob Barsimson, emigrated from
Holland to New Amsterdam (New York) and in the next decade many more followed
him, settling along the East Coast, principally in New Amsterdam and
Newport, Rhode Island. They were prevented by ordinances issued by Governor
Peter Stuyvesant from engaging in the domestic economy, so they quickly
discovered that the territory inhabited by the Indians would be a fertile
field. There were no laws preventing the Jews from trading with the Indians.
- The first Jew to begin trading with the Indians was Hayman
Levy, who imported cheap glass beads, textiles, earrings, armbands and
other cheap adornments from Holland which were traded for valuable fur
pelts. Hayman Levy was soon joined by Jews Nicholas Lowe and Joseph Simon.
Lowe conceived the idea of trading rum and whiskey to the Indians and
set up a distillery in Newport, where these two liquors were produced.
Within a short time there were 22 distilleries in Newport, all of them
owned by Jews, manufacturing and distributing 'firewater.' The story of
the debauching of the Indians with its resultant massacres of the early
settlers, is a dramatic story in itself.
- It is essential to comprehend the seaport of Newport.
It is important in order to recognize the Jewish share in the Slave commerce.
There was a period when it was commonly referred to as 'The Jewish Newport-
World center of Slave Commerce.' All together, at this time, there were
in North America six Jewish communities: Newport, Charleston, New York,
Philadelphia, Richmond, and Savanuah. There were also many other Jews,
scattered over the entire East Coast. Although New York held first place
in the settlers of Jews in North America, Newport held second place.
- New York was also the main source of Kosher meat, supplying
the North American settlements, then the West Indies and also South America.
Now Newport took over! Newport also became the great trade harbour of
the East Coast of North America. There, vessels from other ports met,
to exchange commodities. Newport, as previously mentioned, represented
the foremost place in the commerce of rum, whiskey, and liquor dealings.
And to conclude, it finally became the Main Center of Slave dealings.
It was from this port that the ships left on their way across the ocean,
to gather their black human cargo and then derive great sums of money
in exchange for them.
- An authentic, contemporary report, based on authority,
indicates that of 128 Slave ships, for instance, unloaded in Charleston,
within one year, their "Cargo," 120 of these were undersigned
by Jews from Newport and Charleston by their own name. About the rest
of them, one can surmise, although they were entered as Boston (1), Norfolk
(2), and Baltimore (4), their real owners were similarly the Jewish slave
dealers from Newport and Charleston.
- One is able to assess the Jewish share in the entire
dealings of the Newport, if one considers the undertaking of a lone Jew,
the Portuguese, Aaron Lopez, who plays an important part in the over-all
story of the Jews and Slavery.
- Aaron Lopez
- Concerning the entire commerce of the Colonies, and the
later State of Rhode Island, (which included Newport) bills of lading,
concessions, receipts, and port clearances carried the signature name
of the Jew Aaron Lopez (3). This all took place during the years 1726
to 1774. He had therefore more than 50% of all dealings under his personal
control for almost fifty years. Aside from that there were other ships
which he owned, but sailed under other names.
- In the year 1749, the first Masonic Lodge was established.
Ninety percent of the members of this first lodge, fourteen all told,
were Jews. And one knows that only so-called "prominent" individuals
were accepted. Twenty years later, the second Masonic Lodge, "King
David," was established. It is a fact that all of these members were
- In the meantime, the Jewish influence in Newport had
reached such proportions that President George Washington decided to pay
them a visit. Upon his appearance, both of the Masonic Lodges sent an
emissary-a Jew named Moses Seixas (4) -to approach the President with
a petition, in which the Jews of Newport stated: "If you will permit
the children of Abraham to approach you with a request, to tell you that
we honor you, and feel an alliance...... and then: "Until the present
time the valuable rights of a free citizen have been withheld. However,
now we see a new government coming into being based on the Majesty of
the people, a government, not sanctioning any bigotry nor persecution
of the Jew, rather, to concede the freedom of thought, which each shares,
whatever Nation or Language, as a part of the great Government machine."
- It is necessary at this point to consider the disclosures
as to who in reality obtained this legendary freedom in America at the
founding of the Union. To be sure, the province became independent and
severed from the English Jurisdiction. However, we can see from the petition
(5) which Moses Seixas offered President Washington in the name of the
Jews of Newport, that it was not in reality this type of freedom which
they had in mind. They were merely concerned about themselves, and their
"own civil rights," which had been withheld. Therefore, following
the Revolutionary War, the Jews were accorded equal rights, and freed
of all restrictions! And the Negroes? The Revolutionary War not withstanding,
they remained Slaves! In the year 1750, one sixth of the population in
New York was Negroid, and proportionately in the Southern parts of the
Country, they outnumbered the others, but the proclamation of Freedom
did not touch them. More of this later.
- Let us scrutinize at close range this dismal handwork
of the Jews which gave them influence and power, so we may comprehend
the Slave Trade; for there has been so much written since that time by
the zealous Jewish writers, that at the present, long since removed, it
might appear natural, for the time element has a tendency to make things
- Let us follow the journey of one ship, owned by a slave
dealer, Aaron Lopez, which had made many trips to the African coast.
- For instance, in the month of May, 1752, the ship "Abigail"
was equipped with about 9,000 gallons of rum, a great supply of iron foot
and hand restraints, pistols, powder, sabres, and a lot of worthless
tin ornaments, and under the command of the Jewish Captain Freedman, sailed
off for Africa. There were but two Mates and six sailors comprising the
crew. Three and one half months later they landed on the African Coast.
Meantime, there had been constructed an African Agency, by the Jewish
slave dealers, who had corralled them, and prepared them for sale. This
organization reaching deep into Africa, had many ramifications, including
the heads of groups, villages, etc. This method to win over these leaders
for the Jewish slave trade, was similar to' that which the Jews had employed
with the Indians.
- At first, they presented them with rum, and soon found
themselves in an alcoholic delirium. When the gold dust, and ivory supply
was exhausted, they were induced to sell their descendants. At first
their wives, and then their youths. Then they began warfare among each
other, plotted and developed mostly by the Jews, and if they captured
prisoners, these, too, were exchanged for rum, ammunitions and weapons
to the Jews', using them for further campaigns to capture more Negroes.
The captured Blacks were linked two by two and driven through the medieval
forests to the coast.
- These painful treks required weeks, and some of them
frequently became ill, and felled by exhaustion, and many unable to rise
even though the bull whip was applied as an encourager. They were left
to die and were devoured by wild beasts. It was not unusual to see the
bones of the dead laying in the tropical sun, a sad and gruesome reminder
to those who would later on tread this path.
- It has been calculated that for each Negro who withstood
the rigors of this wandering, there still had to be the long voyage across
the ocean, before they reached American soil, nine out of ten died! And
when one considers that there was a yearly exodus of ONE MILLION black
slaves, then, and only then, can one assess the tremendous and extensive
exodus of the African people. At present Africa is thinly populated, not
alone due to the 1,000,000 literally dragged out of huts, but due to the
five to nine million who never reached their destination. Once they reached
the coast, the black slaves were driven together, and restraints were
applied to hold them until the next transport ship docked. The agents-many
of them Jews-who represented the Chief, then began the deal with the Captain.
Each Negro was personally presented to him. But the captains had learned
to become suspicious. The Black one must move his fingers, arms, legs,
and the entire body to insure that there were not any fractures. Even
the teeth were examined. If a tooth was lacking, it lowered the price.
Most of the Jew agents knew how to treat sick Negroes with chemicals in
order to sell them as sound. Each Negro was valued at about 100 gallons
of rum, 100 pounds of gun powder, or in cash between 18 to 20 dollars.
The notations of a captain inform us that on September 5, 1763, one Negro
brought as much as 200 gallons of rum, due to the bidding among the agents,
raising the price.
- Women under 25 years, pregnant or not, resulted in the
same measure, if they were well and comely. Any over 25 years lost 25%.
- And here it should be stated that those Negroes, purchased
free at the African Coast for 20 to 40 dollars, were then resold by the
same slave dealers in America for two thousand dollars.
- This gives one an idea how the Jews managed to acquire
tremendous fortunes. Following the bargaining, Captain Freedman paid the
bill, either in merchandise or cash. He also recalled some advice which
his Jewish employers gave him as he left Newport for Africa: "Pour
as much water into the rum as you possibly can." In this manner the
Negro chiefs were cheated two times by the Newport Jews!
- The next step was to shave the hair from the head of
the acquired slaves. Then they were bound and branded with a hot iron,
either on the back, or the hip, identifying them with their owners. Now
the Negro slave was indeed the property of the Jewish purchaser. If he
fled he could be identified. Following this procedure, there was a farewell
celebration. There were instances when entire families were brought out
of the interior, to the coast, and then separated through the buyer-the
father going with one ship, the sons and daughters into another. These
"farewell" celebrations were usually packed with emotion, tears,
drama and sadness. There was little joy, if ever.
- The following day the transport began from land to ship.
It was managed by taking four to six Negroes at one time in rowboats to
the ship. Of course the slave dealers were aware of how the Negro loved
his homeland above all else, and could only be induced by great force
to leave it. So, some of the Negroes would leap into the water. But here
the overseers were prepared with sharp dogs and retrieved the fleeing
men. Other Negroes preferred drowning. What came aboard alive was immediately
undressed. Here was another opportunity to jump overboard and reach land
and freedom. But the slave dealers were pitiless and ruthless; they were
merely concerned to get their Black cargo to America with the least loss.
Therefore, an escapee, recaptured, had both of his legs cut off before
the eyes of the remaining Negroes in order to restore "Order."
- On board the ship the Negroes were separated into three
groups. The men were placed in one part of the ship. The women into another,
whereby the lusty Captain arranged it so that the youngest, mostly comely
Negro women were accessible to him.
- The children remained on deck, covered with a cloth in
bad weather. In this fashion the slave ship proceeded on its journey to
America. In the main, the ships were too small, and not at all suitable
to transport people. They were barely equipped to transport animals,
which the Negroes were likened to. In one space, one meter high (39 inches)
these unfortunate creatures were placed into a horizontal position, pressed
close together. Mostly they were chained together. In this position they
had to remain for three months, until the end of the voyage. Rarely was
there a captain who sympathized with them or evidenced any feelings whatever
for these pitiable creatures. Occasionally they would be taken in groups
to the deck for fresh air, shackled in irons.
- Somehow, these Negroes were expendable and endured much.
On occasion, one of them became insane, killing the other one pressed
closely to him. They also had their fingernails closely cut so they could
not tear at each other's flesh. The most horrible battles came about
among the men, to acquire a centimeter or two for a comfortable position.
It was then that the slave overseer stepped in with his bullwhip. The
unimaginable, horrible, human excrement in which these slaves had to endure
these trips is impossible to describe.
- In the women's quarters the same conditions prevailed.
Women gave birth to children lying pressed closely together. The younger
Negro women were constantly raped by the captain and the crew resulting,
thereby, a new type of Mulatto as they came to America.
- In Virginia, or in any of the other Southern port cities,
the slaves were transferred to the land and immediately sold. A regular
auction would take place, following the method of purchase in Africa.
The highest bidder obtained the "Ware." In many cases-due to
the indescribable filth-some of the Blacks became ill during the sea
voyage from Africa to America. They became unemployable. In such cases
the captain accepted any price. It was rare to dispose of them for no
one wanted to purchase a sick Negro. Therefore, it is not surprising that
the Jewish, unethical doctor senses a new form of revenue. They purchased
the sick Negro for a small sum, then treated him, and sold him for a large
sum. On occasion, the captain would be left with a few Negroes for whom
he did not find a buyer. In that case he returned to Newport and sold
them to the Jews for cheap domestic help. In other cases, the Jew owner
of the ships took them over. This is why the city of Newport and its surroundings
had 4,697 black slaves in the year 1756.
- Slavery did not extend to the North. Moreover, in many
of the North American Colonies, slavery was strictly forbidden. Georgia
came under discussion; likewise also Philadelphia. And again it was the
Jews who managed a loophole, which had given them freedom following the
Revolutionary War, so, they schemed to make slave trading legal.
- One had but to read the names of those persons living
in Philadelphia who were requesting the elimination of existing laws regarding
the slavery dealing. They were: the Jews Sandiford, Lay, Woolman, Solomon,
and Benezet. That explained it all! But let us turn back to the slave
ship "Abigail." Its captain-and we are reading from his ship's
books-did a profitable business. He sold all of his Negroes in Virginia,
invested some of the money in tobacco, rice, sugar, and cotton, and went
on to Newport where he deposited his wares.
- We learn from Captain Freedman's books that the "Abigail"
was a small ship and could only accommodate 56 people. He managed, however,
to clear from one trip 6,621 dollars, which he in turn delievered to the
owner of the ship: one Aaron Lopez.
- The staggering amounts of money acquired by the Jew ship
owners and slavery dealers is better illustrated when we emphasize the
many years in which this sale and purchase of human flesh was practiced.
Prior to 1661, all of the Colonies had laws prohibiting slavery. It was
in that year that the Jews had become powerful enough to bring about the
repeal of these laws, and slavery began in earnest.
- The Jews had discovered that the Colonists needed additional
manpower to help them clear their fields for planting, helping in the
construction of dwellings, and in general to help with harvesting their
crops. This was particularly true of the Southern states which we have
referred to earlier. The Southerners had vast tracts of rich soil suitable
for rice, cotton, tobacco and cane sugar. At first, impoverished Europeans
were recruited. English prison doors were opened and finally prisoners
ot war from England and Holland were brought to the Colonies, made to
work until they had paid the cost of transporting them by ship and then
- It doesn't take a Jew long to discover what his brothers
are doing, so a group of Jews settled in Charleston, South Carolina, where
they set up distilleries for making rum and whiskey. They, too, learned
that they could trade with the natives on the West Coast of Africa for
ivory, and several ships were purchased and sent to Africa, trading the
usual glass beads and other cheap ornaments for ivory, which, however,
took up but little space on board ship. It occurred to these Jew traders
that they could supply the plantations in the South with 'Black ivory',
needed under swampy and malarial conditions which European labor could
not tolerate without sickness, and which would not only fill the holds
of their ships, but bring enormous profits. (This same group had earlier
tried selling Indians as slaves but they found them completely unsatisfactory,
as the Indians would not tolerate this type of work.) Thus, another segment
of the slave trading had become active and profitable out of Charleston,
South Carolina. Several shiploads of Black slaves were sent by the Dutch
West Indies Company to Manhattan.
- During this time there were a number of plantation owners
established in the West Indies and two Jews, Eyrger and SayUer, with strong
Rothschild connections in Spain, formed an agency called ASIENTO, which
later operated in Holland and England. It was through these connections
that Jews in Holland and England exerted influence and both of these connections
cooperated in helping the Jews provide Black Slaves for the Colonists.
- With the yearly capture and transport of one million
Black slaves it is not difficult to figure that from 1661 to 1774 (one
hundred thirteen years) approximately one hundred ten million slaves had
been removed from their native land. About ten percent, or ELEVEN MILLION,
Black slaves reached the Colonies alive.
- We have talked about the small ship "Abigail"
which could accommodate only 56 people and yet the profits per trip were
enormous, with little or no investment. There were many other ships but
we will concentrate here on only a few, such as the "La Fortuna,"
"Hannah," "Sally" or the "Venue" which made
very great profits. The "La Fortuna," by the way, transported
approximately 217 slaves on each trip. The owner cleared not less than
$41,438.00 from such a trip. These were dollars which the slave dealers
'could keep'. And these were dollars of value which would buy a great
deal in return.
- When one considers that the Jews of Newport owned about
300 slave- transporting ships, active without interruption, docking at
Newport- Africa, Charleston, (or Virginia), one can approximate the tremendous
earnings which made their way to Jewish ship owners. Indeed, the Jews
admit, that of the 600 ships, leaving Newport harbor into all the world,
"at least half of them" went their way to Africa, and we know
what these ships going to Africa "were seeking."
- The fact that Aaron Lopez had control of over more than
half of the combined deals in the Colonies of Rhode Island, with Newport,
is well- known. The well-known Rabbi Morris A. Gutstein, in his book, The
Story of the Jews in Newport, attempts to remove these facts, maintaining
that there is not any evidence that the Jews were connected with the Slave
Trade. It is therefore imperative to prove that the Jew was indeed connected
with the slave trading. Especially so since this rabbi insists they had
made great contributions, and how very "blessed" their residence
became for the city of Newport. Surely Morris A. Gutstein will grant us
permission to present the facts which he was unable to find.
- Turning to one report of the Chamber of Commerce of the
"Rhode Island Colony" in the year 1764, we find, for instance,
that in the year 1723 "a few merchants in Newport" devised the
idea to send their Newport rum to the coast of Africa. It developed into
such a great export that in the matter of a few years "several thousand
(hogsheads)" of rum went that way. To which purpose did this rum
- The Carnegie Institute in Washington, D.C., presents
and makes public authentic documents entitled "Documents Illustrative
of the History of the Slave Trade in America". We wish to present
a few facts from this particular collection of original documents and
scrutinize them at closer range, and not at all to prove the heretofore
Rabbi Morris A. Gutstein in error. In this collection of the first American
institute of learning, we evaluate the capital "Rhode Island"
which contributed the main share of the public documentation regarding
the Slave trading. Here we find documented the recipients of the numerous
shipping letters, also letters to the Slave dealers, and correspondence
to the ship's captains, who were about 15% Jews, living in Newport. Among
these we find, for instance, the Jew Isaac Elizar. He wrote a letter to
Captain Christopher Champlin on February 6, 1763, saying he would like
to be an agent for a load of slaves. Then follows the Jew Abraham Pereira
Mendez, and one of the main slave dealers, Jacob Rod Rivera-the father-in-law
of Aaron Lopez. And then there is Aaron Lopez, himself, and many, many
more other Jews. Although we have considered Aaron Lopez several times,
the size of this documented treatise limits us, and we cannot describe
all of the writers concerned in the Slavery Dealing correspondence, their
names and the special dates-rather, we wish to study the documentation
of the 'Carnegie Institute' itself-keeping Aaron Lopez in mind. We wish
to see what in the main this Jew was pursuing and what his business was.
This is due to the fact that Rabbi Morris A. Gutstein presents him as
a "lofty and fine civilian of Newport" who was so generous and
even "made contributions to welfare."
- In a great number of published original unprejudiced
writings in the Carnegie Institute, we find that Aaron Lopez pursued a
tremendous commerce in rum with the African coast in exchange for slaves.
These irrefutable facts are as follows:
- June 22, 1764, a letter by Captain William Stead to Aaron
- July 22, 1765, a letter by Aaron Lopez to Captain Nathaniel
- July 22, 1765, a letter to Captain Abraham All.
- February 4, 1766, a letter to Captain William Stead by
- March 7, 1766, a letter by Captain William Stead to Aaron
- February 20, 1766, a letter by Aaron Lopez to Captain
- October 8, 1766, a letter by Captain William Stead to
- February 9, 1767, a letter by Captain William Stead to
- Aside from that, there are similar statements out of
letters by Aaron Lopez in the original, which he directed to the Captains
Henry Cruger, David Mill, Henry White, Thomas Dolbeare, and William Moore.
Indeed, one letter by Captain William Moore to Aaron Lopez & Company,
is particularly revealing, and of special mention at this point. We wish
to remark on the main contents of this letter in which Captain Moore writes:
"I wish to advise you that your ship 'Ann' docked here night before
last with 112 slaves, consisting of 35 men, 16 large youths, 21 small
boys, 29 women, 2 grown girls, 9 small girls, and I assure you this is
such a one rumcargo (rum in exchange for slaves) which I have not yet
encountered, among the entire group there may be five to which one could
- The date of the above letter was November 27, 1773. We
have not yet concluded, because of lack of space, the excerpts and grateful
compilations made available by the "Carnegie Institute."
- On November 29, 1767, the Jew Abraham Pereira Mendez-who
had been cheated by one of his kind-from Charleston, where he had journeyed
to better control his Black cargo, wrote Aaron Lopez at Newport:
- "These Negroes, which Captain Abraham All delivered
to me, were in such poor condition due to the poor transportation, that
I was forced to sell 8 boys and girls for a mere 27 (pounds), 2 other
for 45 (pounds) and two women each for 35 (pounds)." (No doubt, English
- Abraham Pereia Mendez was very angry and accused Aaron
Lopez of "cheating" him. This letter delineates to us that this
generous and fine citizen of Newport was insatiable in his greed for money.
This is what caused the Rabbi Morris A. Gutstein to present this nobleman,
Aaron Lopez, to pursue his objectionable methods. Negroes presented to
him but a commodity.
- In all of the letters which the "Carnegie Institute"
published, it stresses the lack of human sympathy for the poor Negro slaves.
This lack of feeling and compassion for the abused and pitiful Blacks
at the hands of their Jewish dealers, can be read out of the diary of
a captain who manned a ship owned by Aaron Lopez. The entrees concern
a trip from the African Coast to Charleston. Moreover, they are authentic
documents, published by the "Camegie Institute" in Washington,
D.C., calling attention to an organization which had heretofore known
little or nothing about; neither had they encountered further publicity
in books or newspapers. Therefore, it is not to be wondered at that the
facts of the leading share of American Jews in the slave trade could be
pointed out as a monopoly, and unknown to the non-Jewish Americans, including
the great masses of people all over the world. Others, however, acquainted
with the facts, had good reason to remain painfully quiet.
- The captain of another ship, the "Othello"
among other things, makes the following entries in his diary:
- February 6th: One man drowned in the process of loading.
- March 18th: Two women went overboard because they had
not been locked up.
- April 6th: One man dead with Flux. (No doubt an illness.)
- April 13th: One woman dead with Flux.
- May 7th: One man dead with Flux.
- June 16th: One man dead by Kap Henry.
- June 21st: One man dead by James Fluss.
- July 5th: One woman dead with fever.
- July 6th: One girl, sick for two months, died.
- This vessel was on its way for five months. What terrible
and unspeakable suffering was the lot of these millions of Blacks, who
were torn with brutal force from their friendly African huts, jammed
together, like animals below deck, and then sold with less concern than
selling a head of cattle. Small wonder that ten of them died, being purchased
for just a few dollars, and then sold for the sum of $2,000.00.
- Some Negroes managed, through insurrection, to gain control
of one or another ship and turned it around, with full sails, toward their
African home. The crew of one slave ship, "Three Friends" for
instance, tortured their Black cargo in such a manner that the Negroes
reciprocated in a bloody rebellion. They killed the captain and the entire
crew and threw the dead overboard. They then sailed back to Africa where
they had barely escaped their hard-won freedom.
- A similar fate struck the slave ship "Amistad".
Among the slaves was the son of an enemy tribal chief. Once the ship was
under way, he schemed with his compatriots to attack the ship's crew.
Following a bloody battle, they managed to capture the captain. The Negro
prince forced him to turn back to Africa, then in the evening, under cover
of darkness, he changed his course, zigzagged for months untfl he came
close to the American coast, and encountered a government ship. This took
place in the year 1839 when slave trading was already forbidden and illegal.
- The Negro slaves were freed and the captain punished.
These sea voyages were not without danger when they had Black cargo, which
accounts for the fact that the Jews most always engaged non-Jewish captains.
- The slave dealers preferred to remain in their offices
and counted the fat winnings following each journey, such as Aaron Lopez,
who left his heirs one of the largest fortunes in the New England era.
- When reviewing the documented facts contained herein,
it is important that one always remembers that it was a lucky captain
who did not lose more than 9 out of 19 slaves on the return trip.
- It is equally important to remember that these poor Black
creatures had to lie in human excrement for the entire trip. Think of
it! No wonder sickness and disease took such a high toll. Remember the
figures: approximately one hundred ten million Black people were captured
and removed from their homeland in Africa. Only ELEVEN MILLION of these
Black slaves reached the Colonies alive.
- And the Jews still talk about the Germans and Hitler
and how six million Jews were exterminated during World War II. This is
the greatest LIE ever perpetrated upon the people of the world-whereas
the story of the poor Black slaves is documented. Documented with TRUTH.
The evidence is still available for the people of the world to see.
- The "Carnegie Institute of Technology" is located
in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
- As this document is distributed, eventually reaching
the hands of the Jew, the evidence will probably be removed and destroyed
until finally all documentation is removed which is damaging to the Jew.
The Jews have been engaged in this practice for centuries. Truth, however-truth
which bears fact cannot remain covered or hidden forever-and more truths
are being disclosed by those of us who intend to free America of these
sons of the devil-the Jews.

- Only about 10% of the slave ship captains were Jews,
not wanting to subject themselves to the rigors of the 6-month journey.
They preferred to stay at home and continue their distillery operations
which continued to supply rum and whiskey to the Indians for many years
at a very great profit.

- We cannot undertake even this brief history of the modern
Jew without taking note of a phenomenon which his confounded Gentile societies
for twenty centuries. This is the ability of the Jewish people to collectively
retain their identity despite centuries of exposure to Christian civilization.
To any student of Judaism, or to the Jews themselves, this phenomenon
is partly explained by the fact that Judaism is neither mainly a religion,
nor mainly a raciai matter, nor yet is it simply a matter of nationality.
Rather it is all three, it is a kind of trinity. Judaism is best described
as a nationality built on the twin pillars of race and religion. All this
is closely related to another aspect of Judaism, namely the persecution
myth. Since first appearing in history, we find the Jews propagating the
idea that they are an abused and persecuted people, and this idea is,
and has always been, central in Jewish thinking. The myth of persecution
is the adhesive and cement of Judaism: without it Jews would have long
since ceased to exist, their racial-religious nationality notwithstanding.
- It is a fact that the Jewish people have suffered numerous
hardships in the course of their history, but this is true of other peoples
too. The chief difference is that the Jews have kept score. We Must repeat-they
have kept score-they have made a tradition of persecution.
- A casual slaughter of thousands of Chriestians is remembered
by no one in 50 years, but a disability visited upon a few Jews is preserved
forever in Jewish histories. And they tell their woes not only to themselves,
but to a sympathetic world as well.

- Aaron Lopez and his family arrived in Newport around
1750 from New York via Lisbon, Portugal. Lopez arrived in the new world
as a member of a "Marrano" family with the Christian name of
"Don Duarte Lopez." Lopez immediately dropped his Christian
name and took the Hebrew name of Aaron and submitted to ritual circumcision.
Within twenty years, Lopez owned or had interests in over 80 sailing vessels.
Lopez was also one of the original founders and contributors of Touro
Synagogue and by the end of his life was recognized as one of the "Merchant
Princes" of early America. His merchant trading interests included
rum, molasses, dry goods and African slaves.
- Moses Levy and the Moses Seixas families both lived in
one of Newport's large colonial mansions at 29 Touro Street. Seixas was
a founding member of the nation's oldest Jewish Masonic Lodge (King David
in Newport) and Grand Master of the Masonic Order of Rhode Island. Seixas
was well known as the Cashier of the Bank of Rhode Island. President (Parnas)
of Touro Synagogue at the time of the George Washington visit and letter
to the congregation, Seixas also performed the Covenant of Circumcision
(B'rith Milah). Prominent merchant and trader Moses Levy of New York and
Newport was one of several Ashkenazi Jewish families in Newport at that
time. Levy owned the Touro Street Mansion and willed the property to Moses
Seixas in 1792.

- Deprived as we hitherto have been of the invaluable rights
of free citizens, we now-with a deep sense of gratitude to the Almighty
Disposer of all events - behold a government erected by the majesty of
the people-a government which to bigotry gives no sanction, to persecution
no assistance, but generously affording to all liberty of conscience and
immunities of citizenship, deeming every one of whatever nation, tongue,
or language, equal parts of the great governmental machine.
- This so ample and extensive Federal Union, whose base
is philanthropy, mutual confidence and public virtue, we cannot but acknowledge
to be the work of the great God, who rules in the armies of the heavens
and among the inhabitants of the earth, doing whatever seemeth to Him
- For all the blessings of civil and religious liberty
which we enjoy under an equal and benign administration, we desire to
send up our thanks to the Ancient of days, the great Preserver of men,
beseeching Him that the angels who conducted our forefathers through the
wilderness into the promised land may graciously conduct you through
all the difficulties and dangers of this mortal life; and when, like Joshua,
full of days and full of honors, you are gathered to your fathers, may
you be admitted into the heavenly paradise to partake of the water of
life and the tree of immortality.
