By Dr. David Duke
Since White people are routinely condemned for 200 years of slavery in America, why are Jews not condemned for their leading role in slave trade over the last 2000 years?
“The White race is to be condemned in the liberal press for having had slaves over a 150 years ago in the United States. Why are the Jewish people not condemned for their leading role in the slave trade over the last 2000 years?”
Another question for David Duke and his answer!
Mr. Duke, you mention the White role in slavery, but please bring up the historic role in this nefarious practice. You wrote about it so powerfully in Jewish Supremacism. Most scholars say that far more Blacks perished in the slave trade itself than from conditions in the Americas. “If the White race is to be condemned in the liberal press, why are not the Jewish people condemned for the world’s leading role in the slave trade over the last 2000 years?”–Dr. E Brian
That’s such a good question Dr. Brian. It is one that has an interesting and obvious answer. One must look at the identity of the people doing the condemning. The historical Jewish domination of the slave trade is revealing about the entire structure of the Jewish-Gentile conflict and the propaganda to which we are subjected. I will never forget when, as a young boy, I watched the Ten Commandments with that great Gentile icon Charlton Heston playing Moses. In the audience of the Pharoah, Moses stands up and condemns him for slavery.
Only thing was, he didn’t mention the fact that the Hebrews had slaves too. In fact in the Old Testament, none other than God himself commands that no slaves will be made of your own people, but you can make slaves of other peoples as your inheritance forever! In Jewish Supremacism and My Awakening I give the entire verse word for word. I have got to be careful here, for simply by quoting the verse I can be condemned as condoning slavery — which I don’t. For simply quoting that verse, my friend Sam Francis lost his job as editorial page editor for the Washington Times.
Jewish Supremacism also quotes major Jewish historians bragging about their domination of the slave trade since ancient times. And many more recent writers of Jewish history actually boast of their incredible domination of the triangular slave trade between Africa, the West Indies and the American colonies. When Nation of Islam researchers began quoting what the Jews had written for Jewish consumption, Minister Farakhan and others were condemned as “anti-semites” for falsely saying that Jews controlled the historical slave trade!
Of course, the closest thing that approximates the ancient slave trade to the present day is the White slave trade (prostitution) including the forced abasement and torture of hundreds of thousands of Eastern European women. As readers of the David Duke Report are aware, this nefarious activity is almost completely controlled by Jews and much of it is based in Israel. But somehow the Jews get no bad press from this. Again, it really is not hard to understand when one understands who controls the press!
Here are some excerpts from Jewish Supremacism on the subject. (Footnotes appear at the end of the text in order)
The Slave Trade
44 As for your male and female slaves whom you may have: you may buy male and female slaves from among the nations that are round about you…
46 You may bequeath them to your sons after you, to inherit as a possession forever; you may make slaves of them, but over your brethren the people of Israel you shall not rule, one over another, with harshness. (Leviticus 25:44)
Although the institution of slavery existed throughout most of human history, trade in human flesh has never been looked upon as a noble occupation. Compassionate men and women have long decried cruel mistreatment of slaves, especially of women and children, by slave traders and holders. Many agreed with Christ’s admonitions to slaveholders to treat their slaves kindly. In contrast to the benevolent image assigned to them by the media, Jews historically dominated an international institution that embodied the darkest evils of human exploitation: the slave trade.
My introduction to the important Jewish role in slave trading came from an article about Jews written by a leading Jewish historian and apologist, Jacob Marcus, in the Encyclopaedia Britannica. Marcus casually remarked about the Jewish control of commerce in the Middle Ages — particularly in the slave trade.
In the dark ages the commerce of western Europe was largely in his [the Jew’s] hand, in particular the slave trade. . . .
The Jewish mastery of the slave trade did not go unnoticed to Christian writers of the Middle Ages. I read poignant accounts of European children who suffered sexual and other abuses from Jewish slavetraders who acquired them. In Roman times they often followed the path of the conquering Roman army and enslaved enemy soldiers and civilians. Chroniclers of the ancient and medieval periods wrote of their preference for fair women and children, and of their frequent sale in the Levant. The Jewish slavers were more than happy to satisfy darker men’s taste for White flesh. Horrified by reports of abuse of Christian women and children by Jews, a number of Christian principalities issued edicts detailing these abuses and forbidding Jews to own or trade in Christian women and children. Jews, in writing their own histories, have matter-of-factly acknowledged the Jewish role in slave trading, looking at it as simply an extremely lucrative Jewish commercial venture. In A History of the Jew: From Babylonian Exile to the End of World War II, published by the Jewish Publications Society of America, the author writes very emphatically:
Jews were among the most important slave dealers [in European society].
It really surprised me when I found out that Jews played a prominent role in American slavery. In the early 1970s, I came across a book called Who Brought the Slaves to America by Walter White. I could understand the role of Jews in the slave trade of the Mediterranean region, but it seemed unlikely to me that the very small Jewish population in the early American Colonies could dominate such a large enterprise. I had also retained at that time Hollywood’s image of White men, perhaps even Southerners, sailing to Africa and rounding up Black natives for the slave trade. In movies, articles and books, slavers were Anglo-Saxons with names like Smith or Jones. Usually, they were hard-drinking, uncouth, Southern types. Later I learned that slavery was ubiquitous in Africa among native Blacks themselves, and that they were seldom rounded up by Whites. Usually, Black African slaveholders were the ones who sold them to the slavetraders.
Who Brought the Slaves to America steered me to the library collections that housed the records of the slave ships, contemporary accounts, and a number of Jewish historians who documented the role Jews have played in slavery (also see the Barnes Review, Sept. 97). The Jewish writers I read were prideful in their accounts of the great Jewish slave traders. A good case in point is Marc Raphael’s Jews and Judaism in the United State: A Documentary History.
Jewish merchants played a major role in the slave trade. In fact, in all the American colonies, whether French (Martinique), British, or Dutch, Jewish merchants frequently dominated.
This was no less true on the North American mainland, where during the eighteenth century Jews participated in the ‘triangular trade’ that brought slaves from Africa to the West Indies and there exchanged them for molasses, which in turn was taken to New England and converted into rum for sale in Africa. Isaac Da Costa of Charleston in the 1750s, David Franks of Philadelphia in the 1760s, and Aaron Lopez of Newport in the late 1760s and early 1770s dominated Jewish slave trading on the American continent.
In North America, the slave trade had its most powerful center in Newport, Rhode Island. Newport formed a pivotal part of the triangular slave trade of rum and molasses from New England to Africa for slaves and back to the West Indies and the Colonies with the human cargo. I discovered that it was no coincidence that Newport, center of the slave trade, had the oldest synagogue in America and the largest thriving Jewish community in the American colonies.
Aaron Lopez, a Portuguese Jew of Marrano descent and a resident of Newport, was one of the most powerful slave traders in the Americas. He owned dozens of ships and imported thousands of Blacks into the Western Hemisphere. In an account of just two voyages of one of Lopez’s ships, the Cleopatra, at least 250 Blacks perished. Such horrendous loss of life in such a dirty business did not prevent Jewish chronicler Jacob Marcus from praising Lopez: “What can be said about this most attractive figure.?” Although Lopez acquired riches in the Colonies, he violated the anti-British non-importation trade agreements during the revolutionary period, supporting Britain’s interests rather than the Colonies.’
Jews dominated the slave trade not only in the American Colonies but all over the New World. In a major Jewish history of the early Americas called, New World Jewry, 1492-1776, one can find the following passage:
They came with ships carrying African blacks to be sold as slaves. The traffic in slaves was a royal monopoly, and the Jews were often appointed as agents for the Crown in their sale….[They] were the largest ship chandlers in the entire Caribbean region, where the shipping business was mainly a Jewish enterprise….The ships were not only owned by Jews, but were manned by Jewish crews and sailed under the command of Jewish captains.
Many Jewish writers chronicled the Jewish role in slavery, often boasting of their shrewdness in the business.
The West India Company, which monopolized imports of slaves from Africa, sold slaves at public auctions against cash payment. It happened that cash was mostly in the hands of Jews. The buyers who appeared at the auctions were almost always Jews, and because of this lack of competitors they could buy slaves at low prices. On the other hand, there also was no competition in the selling of the slaves to the plantation owners and other buyers, and most of them purchased on credit payable at the next harvest in sugar. Profits up to 300 percent of the purchase value were often realized with high interest rates….If it happened that the date of such an auction fell on a Jewish holiday the auction had to be postponed. This occurred on Friday, October 21, 1644.
Although certainly indefensible by today’s moral standards, slavery in the United States was many times preferable to the incredibly cruel and murderous conditions of African slavery. The greatest inhumanity of Black slavery is associated with the passage to America. Some say that 10 to 15 percent of Black slaves died in the cramped and filthy conditions on the ships. Since the Jews have dominated the slave trade from ancient times, I realized that it is not only Blacks who have suffered from those inhuman conditions, but also untold numbers of White people of the Mediterranean region. It should also be pointed out that not only were Jews the principal slave traders, they had a markedly higher per capita holding of slaves than non-Jews.
All through the eighteenth century, into the early nineteenth, Jews in the North were to own black servants; in the South, the few plantations owned by Jews were tilled with slave labor. In 1820, over 75 percent of all Jewish families in Charleston, Richmond, and Savannah owned slaves, employed as domestic servants; almost 40 percent of all Jewish householders in the United States owned one slave or more. There were no protests against slavery as such by Jews in the South, where they were always outnumbered at least 100 to 1….Very few Jews anywhere in the United States protested against chattel slavery on moral grounds.
Considering that less than 10 percent of all colonists owned slaves, Marcus reveals that individual Jewish households (40 percent owned slaves) were far more likely to own slaves than were Gentiles. With their comparatively greater numbers in the Mediterranean world, Jews constituted disproportionate slaveholders in the ancient and medieval world just as they were in the Colonies. The importation of slaves to America is a relatively recent historical phenomenon that lasted about 200 years. From before the time of Christ to the African trade of the 1700s, most of the slaves owned and bartered by Jews were White.
When I learned of the Jewish role in the slave trade, it seemed to me that it could have certainly added to the resentment against the Jews felt by their host populations. Being known as the greatest perpetrators of the slave trade is not the best of public relations for Jews. It is no wonder that the Jewish-dominated media have avoided the issue. Only Jewish scholars, who faithfully record Jewish history, primarily for Jewish readers, are allowed to travel on to such forbidden historical ground.
After my first efforts on national television in the early 1970s to expose the Jewish role in slave trading (on PBS’s — Black Perspectives on the News), the Nation of Islam also did extensive research on the issue. Their historical research department came up with a tremendous amount of documented material on the subject that they published in the book called, The Secret Relationship between Blacks and Jews.
Today, simply by repeating the words of prominent Jewish historians on the Jewish role in slavery, one becomes guilty of “anti-Semitism.” It was only when the public began to learn some of the little-known facts previously reserved for Jewish scholars, that the ADL found it necessary to counter such “anti-Semitic” propaganda. The ADL and other Jewish organizations have responded by trotting out a number of prestigious Jewish scholars who have publicly announced that the Jewish role in the colonial slave trade was “minimal.”
In Spielberg’s blockbuster movie on the slave trade, Amistad, there was hardly a Jew to be found in the film. Although the Jews dominated the Newport, Rhode Island slave trade, all the slavers in the film seemed conspicuously Christian. A number of articles that discussed Amistad and the slave trade, including Time and Newsweek, went out of their way to deny a major Jewish role in slave trading. Unfortunately, most of their readers were not told what prominent Jewish historians themselves wrote about the matter before it became an embarrassing public issue.
Few will read the words of the editor of the magazine of the American Jewish Historical Society; “Jewish merchants played a major role in the slave trade. In fact, in all the American colonies, whether French (Martinique), British, or Dutch, Jewish merchants frequently dominated. This is no less true on the North American mainland…”
