Senator McCarran quoted a letter (September 9, 1949) from Sam E. Woods, which tells that the alleged payment of 50 marks through the wife of the president of the Jewish committee of the town (Schwandorf, Bavaria), led to an investigation which showed that a number of displaced persons, who had already departed for the United States, had previously caused their police records in Schwandorf to be changed. The Senator also gave evidence that the head of the Displaced Persons Commission at Frankfurt in direct violation of the law caused to be removed from files those documents which would prevent the acceptance of a displaced person as an immigrant. Senator McCarran‘s findings were supported by overwhelming testimony. To cite one instance, Mr. Edward M. Slazek, a former assistant selectorfor the Displaced Persons Commission in Germany, testified before a Senate Judiciary sub-committee on immigration that he was fired because he protested the admission of fake DP‘s through wholesale fraud and bribery (Washington Times-Herald)
In view of findings and testimony, Senator McCarran urged caution on the bill Hr. 4567 by Mr. Emanuel Celler of New York, which provided for more Jewish immigrants, at Mr. Truman‘s especial request. The president said his recommendations were in favor of more Catholics and Jews, but the Catholic World stated editorially that Catholics were satisfied with the law as it was. Senator McCarran‘s efforts did not prevail. The Celler bill became Public Law 555, 81 st Congress, when signed by the President on June 16, 1950. It raised from 205,000 to 415,744 the number of refugees over and above quotas eligible legally to enter the United States. (The McCarran-Walter bill, designed to regulate immigration in the national interest, was vetoed by President Truman, but became law when the Senate on June 27, 1952, followed the House in overriding the veto.)
An additional serious aspect of displaced persons is their disposition to cause trouble. Without exception informed officials interviewed by the author as an intelligence officer in 1945 advised caution on the indiscriminate admission of refugees, Jewish and other, in the period following VE Day is furnished by Major Harold Zink, a former Consultant on U.S. policy in Germany, in his book American Military Government in Germany (Macmillan, 1947). After stating that displaced persons gave military government more trouble than any other problem and mentioning the agitation to the end that the best German houses be cleared of their occupants and placed at the disposal of the displaced persons, especially the Jews, Professor Zink continues as follows (p.122):
Moreover, the displaced persons continued their under-ground war with the German population. With German property looted, German lives lost, and German women raped almost every day by the displaced persons, widespread resentment developed among the populace, especially when they could not defend themselves against the fire-arms which the displaced persons managed to
Eastern European displaced persons, their associates, and their offspring do not always lose, on arriving in hospitable America, their tendency to cause trouble. In a review of The Atom Spies by Arthur Pilat (Putnam), The New York (May 10, 1952) states that the most important people involved, Klaus Fuchs, David Greenglass, the Julius Rosenbergs, Harry Gold, and Morton Sobell, were not professional spies and they weren‘t much interested in money. The review concludes by emphasizing the clear and continuing danger of having among us an amorphous group of people who can be persuaded at any time to betray their country for what they are told are super-patriotic reasons.
An understanding of Zionism as a super-patriotic force with a focus of interest outside of and alien to America can be had from an editorial signed by Father Ralph Gorman, C.P., in The Sign (November, 1951):
Zionism is not, at present at least, a humanitarian movement designed to help unfortunate Jewish refugees. It is a political and military organization, based squarely on race, religion, and nation, using brute force against an innocent people as the instrument for the execution of its policies.
The Israelis have already carved a state out of Arab land and have driven 750,000 Arabs out of their homes into exile. Now they look with covetous eyes on the rest of Palestine and even the territory across the Jordan.
The Arabs are not fools. They realize what is being prepared for them—with American approval and money. They know that the sword is aimed at them and that, unless Zionist plans are frustrated, they will be driven back step by step into the desert, their lands, homes, vineyards, and farms taken over by an alien people brought from the ends of the earth for this purpose.
Even worse in some aspects is a political philosophy, put into practice by drives to sell Israeli bonds, nation-wide propaganda, etc., to the effect that Israel is supposed to have a unique juris diction over the 10,000,000 to 12,000,000 Jews who live in every country of the world outside it (Mr. William Zuckerman, reporting, in the Jewish Newsletter, on the recent World Zionist Congress held in Jerusalem, as quoted by Father Gorman).
In view of the passages just quoted, why are America‘s leftists so anxious for many more refugees ? Can there be any conceivable reason except for the eager anticipation of their future votes?
Can there be any motives other than anti-American in the opposition to the McCarran-Walter law (p. 166) ? Moreover, can anyone believe that continued subservience to Israeli aims is other than an invitation to war in the Middle East, a war which we would probably lose?
(e) Let us once more consider the foreign policy which is responsible for our present peril. Could it be that those who pull the strings from hidden seats behind the scenes, want Americans to be killed in Korea indefinitely and for no purpose; want the Arab world to turn against us; want a few hundred thousand young Americans killed in Germany, and want the reviving German state destroyed lest it somehow become again (see Chapter I) a bulwark against the present pagan rulers of Eastern Europe and Northern Asia? Such an eventuality, of course, would be used to bring in from here and there as in World War II a great new horde of politically dependable refugees—a boon to all leftists, a boon so great that no further challenge to their power could be conceivable.
In answering the question, Do those who pull the hidden strings really want war? remember that the Soviet manpower reserves are many times greater than ours; their birthrate is nearly twice as high; they have millions of Chinese and other puppets willing to fight for rice and clothing. Without reserves from Asia, however, the Soviet strength in the European theater in 1951 was estimated by General Bonner Fellers as 175 divisions some 25 Soviet‘s favor also is the nature and extent of Soviet territory, which is characterized by miles and miles of marshes in summer and impenetrable snow in winter. The vast inhospitable areas of Russia caused even the tremendous Europe-based armies of Napoleon and Hitler to bog known to ultimate defeat. The long range Soviet strategic aim according to Stalin is to induce the United States to follow a policy of self destruction, and that goal can be best accomplished by our engaging in extended land warfare far from home. Here is testimony from a speech recently delivered at Brown University by Admiral Harry E. Yarnell, former Commander-in-Chief of the United States Asiatic fleet:
To a Russian war planner, the ideal situation would be a campaign against the Allies in Western Europe, where their army can be used to the greatest advantage, while their submarines can operate not far from home bases against the supply lines from the United States to Europe.
Moreover in answering the question, Do those who pull the hidden strings want war? Americans, and particularly women, must remember, alas ! that America is no longer a preeminently Christian and conservative nation, as General MacArthur described it in a speech to the Rainbow Division (1937) as his career as Chief of Staff of the Army was ending (MacArthur On War, by Frank C. Waldrop, Duell, Sloan and Pearce, New York, 1942). Americans who adhere doggedly to the idea that traditional Christianity shall not disappear from our land must beware of the fallacy of thinking that, because they are merciful, other people are merciful. Mercy toward all mankind is a product of Christianity and is absent from the dialectic materialism of the New Rulers of Russia, whose tentacles reach to so many countries. Apart from Christ‘s Sermon on the Mount, the most famous Passage on mercy in the English language is Shakespeare‘s The quality of mercy. It has been widely suppressed, along with the teaching of the play, The Merchant of Venice, which contains it (Chapter V, above).
It is thus well to reflect constantly that Soviet leaders are moved by no consideration of humanity as the term is understood in the Christian West. Instead of relieving a famine, the rulers of Russia are reported to have let millions of Russians die in order to restore in a given province, or oblast, according to Chinese Nationalist sources, and others, the Chinese Communist backed by Russia have decided that they must accomplish the eventual extermination of 150,000,000 Chinese to reduce Chinese population, now between 450,000,000 and 475,000,000, to more manageable proportions (AP dispatch, Dallas Morning News, and other papers, March 12, 1951).
This is necessary, under the Communist theory, if China is to be a strong country without the permanent internal problem of hordes of people near starvation. or likely to be so by the ravages of draught and flood.
This brings us again to the testimony before Congress by Secretary of Defense Marshall (May 8 and following, 1951) that our purpose in Korea was to bleed the Chinese until they got tired and cried halt. For Chinese Communist leaders, who need a population reduction of 150,000,000 people, there is only delighted amusement in such U. S. official statements, intended to justify our war policy and reassure the American public ! Equally amusing for them is the official U.S. statement that we are inflicting casualties much greater than those we are sustaining. Even apart from any Chinese Communist population reduction policy, their present population is three times ours, and they have no plans, as we have, to use elements of their population to save Europe and police foreign areas!
The Kremlin laughter at our acceptance of continuing American casualties under such an insane motivation as bleeding the Chinese and at our waste of materiel must have been even more hearty than that of the Chinese Communists. Yet these appalling facts constituted the foreign policy of our top State Department and Defense Department leaders under the Acheson and Marshall re-
It appears then that U.S. leftists, including those who control the National Democratic Party want war, Socialistic controls, and plenty of casualties, and not one fact known to the author points to the contrary. full-scale war, of course, would be edged into in devious ways with carefully prepared propaganda, calculated to fool average Americans, including ignorant and deluded basically patriotic people in the Democratic Party. There would, of course, be an iron curtain of complete censorship, governmental and other.
Dazed by propaganda verbiage, American boys will not understand—any more than when talking to General Eisenhower during World War II, but they will give their fair young lives:
Theirs not to reason why, Theirs but to do and die.
Greater love hath no man than this, said the Saviour (St. John, XV,13), that a man lay down his life for his friends. But nowhere in scripture or in history is there a justification for wasting precious young life in the furtherance of sinister political purposes.
