The Judeo-Masonic Plutocracy (Excerpt from Zionist New World Order) GENTILE masonry blindly serves as a screen for us and our objects, but the plan of action of our force, even its very abiding-place, remains for the whole people an unknown mystery. (The Protocols of Zion, 4:2) To strengthen his political position [the Jew] tries to tear down the racial and civil barriers which for a time continues to restrain him at every step. To this end he fights with all the tenacity innate in him for religious tolerance and in Freemasonry, which has succumbed to him completely, [in which] he has an excellent instrument with which to fight for his aims and put them across. The governing circles and the higher strata of the political and economic bourgeoisie are brought into his nets by the strings of Freemasonry, and never need to suspect what is happening. - Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, Vol. 1, Ch. 11 (Manheim translation) The origin of Freemasonry is quite controversial. In the Middle Ages in Europe, stone masons were organized in guilds and had the rights to travel from region to region because their skills were in such demand. They eventually established lodges where they would stay until their work in that area was finished and then move on. Such lodges became centers of social activity - mens' clubs, so to speak. Masons who actually worked in stone later came to be known as operative masons. Men who were not operative masons envied their social clubs and wanted to join. Thus began the formation of lodges consisting of speculative masons, or Freemasons, lodge members who were not actually part of the profession of stone cutting and setting. According to Wikipedia: Freemasonry is a fraternal organization that arose from obscure origins (theorized to be anywhere from the time of the building of King Solomon's Temple to the mid-1600s). Freemasonry now exists in various forms all over the world, and has millions of members. The various forms all share moral and metaphysical ideals, which include, in most cases, a constitutional declaration of belief in a Supreme Being.... Freemasonry uses the metaphors of operative stonemasons' tools and implements, against the allegorical backdrop of the building of King Solomon's Temple, to convey what is most generally defined as "a system of morality veiled in allegory and illustrated by symbols." Link Freemasons were very influential in early America. Among the signers of the Declaration of Independence were nine confirmed Masons and a number of others who membership is conjectural. The confirmed masons were: William Ellery (RI), Benjamin Franklin (PA), John Hancock (MA), Joseph Hewes (NC), William Hooper (NC), Robert Treat Paine (MA), Richard Stockton (NJ), George Walton (GA), William Whipple (NH). Link Though many people believe that America was founded as a Christian country, available evidence strongly suggests that it was founded as a Masonic republic. The architecture of Washington, DC would support that contention. The development of Freemasonry in Europe and elsewhere is closely related to the history of the Jews in Western Europe. The Jews were expelled from England in 1290 AD by Edward I. Many of them took refuge in Holland. The Jews were also expelled from Spain in 1492 by Queen Isabella. Many of those also went to Holland. Those who went to Holland were eventually followed by many Marranos, Spanish Jews who had converted to Catholicism under duress: In Amsterdam, the Marranos did not arrive until around 1590, some 11 years after the Union of Utrecht (1579) and the birth of the United Provinces of the Netherlands as a Protestant state. Here, too, they had to wait until 1615 before Jewish settlement was officially authorized, but the Marranos in Amsterdam differed from those in other Protestant countries in that they openly practiced Judaism almost from the moment of their arrival. Thanks to the Marranos, Amsterdam became one of the greatest Jewish centers in the world in the 17th century; ...Amsterdam even became known as "the Dutch Jerusalem." (Link) England endured a civil war in three stages between 1641 and 1652. The outcome was Oliver Cromwell as Lord Protector of an English republic. Under the guidance of Oliver Cromwell a relationship was attempted with Dutch Jews: The commercial policy which led to the Navigation Act in October 1651, made Oliver Cromwell desirous of attracting the rich Jews of Amsterdam to London so that they might transfer their important trade interests with the Spanish Main from Holland to England. The mission of Oliver St John to Amsterdam, though failing to establish a coalition between English and Dutch commercial interests as an alternative to the Navigation Act, had negotiated with Menasseh Ben Israel and the Amsterdam community. A pass was granted to Menasseh to enter England, but he was unable to use it because of the war between England and Holland, which lasted from 1652 to 1654. Link The Jews of Holland (previously Spain) had a long history in Babylon/Persia. They had been expelled from Palestine in 586 BC and went into exile in Babylon. Most remained there even when after a few decades they were allowed to return to Palestine. The Jews in Babylon/Persia had their own community organization of which the leaders were descendants of king David. Following the conquest of Judah by Babylon, and the exile of its population, the Babylonian Exilarchate was established. The highest official of Babylonian Jewry was the exilarch (Reish Galuta, "Head of the Captivity"). Those who held the position traced their ancestry to the House of David in the male line. The position holder was regarded as a king-in-waiting. [emphasis added] (Link). [The final exilarch fell from power in 1040 AD. (Link)] It was in Babylon that the Talmud, the written form of the oral tradition of the Jewish sages was written (there was also a Palestinian Talmud but it has much less authority within Judaism). Also in Babylon there developed a mysticism over many centuries derived from many sources (Jewish, Egyptian, Greek, Babylonian, etc) and which incorporates astrology, sacred geometry, and numerology ultimately distilled into written form in the Cabbala. Jews left Babylon/Persia in significant numbers between the 11th and 14th centuries and migrated through North Africa, many of them eventually reaching Spain. When the Jews arrived in Spain they brought with them not only their Talmudic and Cabbalistic beliefs but also the Davidic bloodline. In 1492 they were given a choice to either leave Spain or convert to Catholicism. Among the converts (Marranos) who stayed were some who began the Alumbrado sect to preserve and practice their beliefs secretly. In 1492, the Alumbrado (The Enlightened) movement was founded by Spanish Marranos (baptised Jews who secretly kept their Talmudic faith) and a similar organisation was founded in France in 1623 – "Guerients" who changed their name to Illuminati in 1722. (Jüri Lina, Under the Sign of the Scorpion, 2002, p. 18) The Spanish Inquisition was in large measure an attempt to suppress the Alumbrado sect. Many fled Spain and sought refuge in France, Holland, and Germany. When Jews re-entered England during Cromwell's rule as Lord Protector, at least some of them were almost certainly members of the Alumbrado sect. They began re-entering England around 1655. So, England had enjoyed freedom from Jews for 365 years - a year of years. During that time England enjoyed the Golden Age of the Renaissance during the Elizabethan Era. Toward the middle of the seventeenth century a considerable number of Marrano merchants settled in London and formed there a secret congregation, at the head of which was Antonio Fernandez Carvajal. They conducted a large business with the Levant, East and West Indies, Canary Islands, and Brazil, and above all with the Netherlands, Spain, and Portugal. They formed an important link in the network of trade spread especially throughout the Spanish and Portuguese world by the Marranos or secret Jews. Link Within 60 years the first Masonic lodges were beginning to appear in Britain. Initially no Judaic influence was evident. However, within another 50 years the influence became clear. Coat of Arms 1. This coat of arms shows the various symbols of Freemasonry, the set square and compass in the middle and bottom, the hand holding the trowel at the top and the three towers understood to be the products of the craft. This is the coat of arms of the original form of speculative masonry (Freemasonry). It was the coat of arms of The London Company of Masons and was adopted as the coat of arms of the original Grand Lodge. Coat of Arms 2. The second coat of arms (previous page, Link) shows a much stronger Judaic influence. We still see the tools of the craft, the set square and compass at the bottom but no longer in the middle. Instead we see four creatures. There is a lion, an ox (or bull), a man, and an eagle. These are usually taken to represent the four creatures prominent in the book of Ezekiel of the Hebrew Bible. We also see the Ark of the Covenant at the top, an important symbol from the Hebrew Bible. The two creatures at the left and right are cherubim, half man and half calf but with wings instead of arms. We also see two smaller versions of the same guarding the Ark. In some versions of this coat of arms there is also Hebrew writing above the Ark and sometimes also at the bottom. The prominence of the four creatures of Ezekiel suggests that the book of Ezekiel had taken on paramount importance in this branch of Freemasonry. The main theme of that book is the restoration of the Davidic monarchy and the building of the third temple. It should be noted that Ezekiel predicts a dynasty of kings (descendants of king David) who will preside over a (presumably) world-wide theocracy. Eventually the two branches of British Freemasonry merged and formed the United Grand Lodge which adopted the coat of arms similar to that shown below (Link). The lions around the edge of the crest were requested by King George V to represent the British royal family. The motto at the bottom means “listen, watch, and remain silent”. Coat of Arms 3. When Jews re-entered Britain following 1655 they married their daughters into British noble families. The offspring would then be Jews (having Jewish mothers) but have British names, customs, contacts and upbringing. They would be part of the British nobility. Membership in Masonic lodges contributed to their upward mobility.
