Is the basis of Western Civilization Jewish and are Christians hypocritical in being anti-Semitic?
Angered by growing anti-Semitism from Christians in the early 20th century, the author pointed out that if people were looking for a “Jewish conspiracy” then they should stop talking about Communism or Capitalism, but face up to the fact that Christianity—and therefore the post-Roman Western Civilization—has a Jewish spiritual, historical, intellectual and even moral basis.
A book which will shock Christians, Jews and atheists alike. With a discussion and conclusion by a leading American professor.
“Our tribal customs have become the core of your moral code. . .
“A Jewish rebel-prophet is the central figure in your religious worship. . .
“Half your wars, great and little, are religious wars, fought over the interpretation of one thing or another in our teachings. . .
“We have imposed upon you an alien book and an alien faith which you cannot swallow or digest, which is at cross-purposes with your native spirit. . .
“Your religion, your education, your morals, your social, governmental and legal systems, are fundamentally of our making. . .
“You Christians do not seem to know where your religion came from, nor how, nor why.”
A Real Case Against the Jews: One of Them Points Out the Full Depth of Their Guilt:
You resent us, but you cannot clearly say why—You resent the Jew not because, as some of you seem to think, he crucified Jesus but because he gave him birth—Our tribal customs have become the core of your moral code—A Jewish rebel-prophet is the central figure in your religious worship—Half your wars, great and little, are religious wars, fought over the interpretation of one thing or another in our teachings—We have imposed upon you an alien book and an alien faith which you cannot swallow or digest, which is at cross-purposes with your native spirit
The Jew: Commissary to the Gentiles,
The First to See the Possibilities of War by Propaganda Your religion, your education, your morals, your social, governmental and legal systems, are fundamentally of our making!—You Christians do not seem to know where your religion came from, nor how, nor why—Gibbon long ago tried to enlighten you—Judea and Rome—Jesus’ disciples formed themselves into a communistic brotherhood—Saul of Tarsus—To the Romans, Christianity meant nothing more than Judaism militant—Christianity had become the dominant cult throughout the empire.

ABout the author: Marcus Eli Ravage was a Romanian Jew (original name Revici) who was born in 1884 in the town of Barlad, Romania. At an early age he immigrated to America and became an accomplished author and writer about immigration and international affairs. He documented his own arrival in America as a Jewish immigrant in the 1917 book An American in the making: The life story of an immigrant and then followed that up in 1919 with the book The Jew pays: a narrative of the consequences of the war to the Jews of eastern Europe, and of the manner in which Americans have attempted to meet them. These two works established his reputation as an author on Jewish affairs, although he wrote other works on political matters (The malady of Europe, 1923; The story of Teapot Dome, 1924; Five men of Frankfort: The story of the Rothschilds, 1934; Empress Innocence: The life of Marie-Louise, 1931).
Ravage died in 1965 in France.
