[p. 54] "33. What is nazism ? Nazism
is an imitation of Judaism; nazism adopted the principles and ideas of Judaism.
[p. 63] "What shall be
our superior philosophy ? The very philosophy which nazism is determined to destroy, namely, Judaism; we will meet the nazi
philosophy with Judaism. The Jews always looked upon Judaism as a religion, but now the Jews must also look upon
Judaism as upon a world philosophy. Hitler has rendered infinite service to Judaism and the Jews by making it
clear that Judaism is a world philosophy. Hitler errs by denying that Judaism is a religion. We shall see later that Judaism
is both a religion and a world philosophy. But for the present we will regard Judaism as a world philosophy, and for this
alone the Jews should be grateful to Hitler, for we shall presently see that this is of great historic significance. Since
nazism is determined to destroy Judaism; since, as we shall presently see, Judaism is infinitely superior to nazism, it follows
that Judaism will overcome and absorb nazism. Since Judaism roots deep in the blood of the Jews, while nazism roots deep in
the blood of the German Aryans, the Jews will overcome and absorb the German Aryans. Judaism has no need to fight against
nazism, and the Jews have no need to fight against the nazis, for Judaism is superior to nazism, and the Jews are superior
to the nazis. This, as we shall presently see, the nazis themselves recognize. We shall see that nazism is nothing
else than an imitation of Judaism; nazism adopted the principles and ideas of Judaism. Likewise, the nazis are trying hard
to imitate the Jews. The nazis are then confronted with this alternative: if they succeed to acquire the merits
and virtues of the Jews, the nazis will become Jews; on the other hand, if the nazis fail to acquire the merits and the virtues
of the Jews, they will disappear from the stage of history. The whole nazi philosophy is fully conscious of this
truth; and nazism, more than any other system of thought, sustains Judaism and the Jews.
[p. 81] "Next,
let me reveal to you a secret: Nazism is nothing else than an imitation and perversion of Marxism; there is nothing
in nazism which was not taken from Marxism. Study Hitler's anti-Marxist Bible: Mein Kampf, read it carefully,
and what will you find ? You will find that Hitler adopted the principles, the ideas, the policy and the method of Marxism.
The National Socialist Party of Hitler was modelled after the fashion of the Communist Party of Soviet Russia, and both were
fashioned according to the ideas of Marxism. Like the revolutionary Marxists, Hitler laid the emphasis upon the working masses.
Where did the nazis get the idea of the National Socialist Party, where did they get the principles and demands embodied in
the twenty-five demands of the National Socialist Party? And who were the theoreticians of nazism, were they not socialists,
communists and men and women who received their education from Marxism ? Where did Hitler and his followers get the idea of
international capital, exploitation, on the one hand, and socialism and national planning, on the other? Did they not get
all this from Marxism? But what is most significant is this. If not for the great work that had been done by the Marxists,
if not for the Russian revolution, if not for the ground that had been prepared by the socialists and the communists, Hitler,
the nazis and the National Socialist Party would have never come into existence;
