The Great Masquerade: Who are the Jews and who are the Gentiles? |
The identification of the Anglo-Saxon, Scandinavian, and Germanic peoples as the surviving members of the race of Israel leaves us with two questions to answer: first, “who are the Jews?”, and second, “was Jesus Christ a Jew?”. To answer these questions we must first define what we mean by ‘Jew’. The muddled thinking of most people on this subject is due to the fact that they never know just what they do mean by ‘Jew’. Sometimes they mean a Jew by religion regardless of his race — for Negroes and Chinese have been converted to Judaism. Or sometimes they mean a Jew by race regardless of his religion. For example, David Ben-Gurion of the Jewish nation in Palestine was a Buddhist by religion and a Jew by race. And, usually people don’t know which of these two they mean.
