(Algemeiner) According to a new book by Jewish author Michael Benson, America’s Chief Rabbi — Stephen Wise — along with Nathan D. Perlman — a former Jewish U.S. member of Congress, New York Assemblyman and judge — entered into a criminal conspiracy with Jewish organized crime boss, Myer Lansky, to illegally disrupt the U.S. German Bund organization to lawfully and peacefully assemble using professional gangsters and thugs to physically attack and intimidate them:
Judge Nathan Perlman and Rabbi Stephen Wise met with Jewish mobster Meyer Lansky — and they agreed to take on the Nazis. But Lansky had one stipulation. He didn’t want bad ink, should he get arrested.
“I don’t want anything in the Jewish papers that my wife shouldn’t read,” Lansky said, according to Michael Benson’s mesmerizing book “Gangsters vs. Nazis: How Jewish Mobsters Battled Nazis in Wartime America.”
This was in 1938, when the German-American Bund was setting up camps to raise money and try to gain influence in the US. Fritz Kuhn was the ringleader. Along with Lansky, the Jewish tough guys who took on the Bund included Abraham “Kid Twist” Reles and Charles “Bug” Workman. One incident where Jewish mobsters attacked the Bund took place at the Yorkville Casino in New York.
Was Perlman risking his career? “It was completely on the down low, although there must have been some sort of conspiracy because the cops kind of looked the other way during the fights,” Benson said. “They would always arrive just about too late to do anything.”
Benson’s book details how Jewish mobsters and others beat up Nazis in different cities, and how the Nazis became afraid to meet publicly. The Jewish fighters were always greatly outnumbered, but somehow Lansky knew they’d win.
“I think he suspected his boys would have the advantage because they hurt people for a living,” Benson said. “A lot of the Germans at the Bund meetings weren’t there to fight. They were there to drink beer and pinch waitresses.”
Jewish gangsters also attacked the Nazis in America, because they believed it was their patriotic duty. Benson said the beatings were instrumental in preventing the Nazis from gaining a foothold in America.
“It stifled the pro-Nazi organizations,” Benson said. “It kept the numbers … down to a minimum. And intelligence gathered helped to prevent [Nazi] sabotage at the docks and other places once the war began.”
In what was a last-ditch effort, Kuhn invited Nazis from across America to meet in Madison Square Garden — but the event turned into a riot that went against the Nazis. Much of the press would go to Izzy Greenbaum, who stormed Kuhn. Greenbaum would get a letter from Perlman congratulating him.
While there is no Jewish mafia now, Benson said regarding recent attacks on Jews on the streets of America, he wouldn’t object if there were a bunch of tough Jews to protect people from violent attacks.
The success of this criminal conspiracy should come as no surprise — the Jews ran New York City, and the cops were in their back pockets.
But in reality, the German Bund — a.k.a. “Friends of New Germany” — was hardly a hardcore “Nazi” organization — rather it was comprised of patriotic middle class German-Americans who had the audacity to show their support for the National Socialist miracle that turned Germany around and brought prosperity to the people.
But even that was too much for the Jews who had called for a worldwide economic boycott on Germany — the Jews couldn’t believe that despite their iron grip on the press, the public — including many public figures — still saw NS Germany in a favorable light.
So they resorted to instigating physical violence in the streets and then blaming it on their opponents — a tactic that the Jewish communists employed in Germany in a vain effort to suppress the National Socialist popularity — admitted to by Jewish-communist writer Arthur Koestler’s 1954 book Invisible Writing.
But when the National Socialists fought back, the Jewish press, of course, portrayed them as “brown-shirted thugs” who victimized innocent Jews who wanted nothing more than live peacefully as “good German citizens.”
