Jew claims they don't want to conquer the world after all




President of the Zionist Organisation, Lithuanian Jew David Wolffsohn (above), was quoted as proclaiming to the Eighth Zionist Congress held in the Hague during 1907, that the Jews must yet conquer the world. Although I've found confirmation of this statement in several different sources, it's possible they were all commenting on a report from a single individual.

Two months after Wolffsohn's alleged proclamation, a Zionist named Gerson Rubinovitz wrote to The Evening Post, advising that an American journalist with poor German, had mistranslated what Wolffsohn had said. Rubinovitz wrote:
"Herr David Wolffsohn in closing the Zionist Congress at The Hague, said—also too figuratively for the American correspondents who did not know any German—"We Zionists have nothing to lose and the whole world to win" To the American correspondent, the German word for "win" was equal to "conquer " And so one more misconception, one to the effect that the Zionists wanted to conquer the world, got abroad. No, we do not want to conquer the world. We would not want to if we could."

  1. I fail to see how the other part of that message, "he called for greater unity among the Jews" can also translate as "we Zionists have nothing to loose".

    Other Zionist leaders, as you know, have stated that their ambition is world government.

    The New York Times was owned by Adolph Ochs, an activist in the Anti-Defamation league, who would have been very reluctant to allow something like that to appear in his paper.

    Rubinovitz' statement reeks of damage control.

    1. I agree.

      Searches on google-books and google-news for "We Zionists have nothing to lose and the whole world to win"

      Produces no results (this post aside.
