Propaganda here is entirely in Jewish hands . . . their propaganda is so effective that people here have no real knowledge of the true state of affairs in Europe
-- Polish Ambassador Potocki, Washington, reporting to Warsaw in 1939


From J. F. C. Fuller, A Military History of the Western World, vol. 3, pp. 372-374:

"THE situation as it was at the end of the year (1938) is so illuminatingly described by the Polish Ambassador at Washington, Count Jerzy Potocki, in a report to the Polish Foreign Office, dated January 12, 1939, that we will quote from it fully:

Public opinion in America nowadays expresses itself in an increasing hatred of everything . . . connected with National Socialism. Above all, propaganda here is entirely in Jewish hands . . . [W]hen bearing public ignorance in mind, their propaganda is so effective that people here have no real knowledge of the true state of affairs in Europe . . . It is interesting to observe that this carefully thought-out campaign -- which is primarily conducted against National Socialism -- no reference at all is made to Soviet Russia. If that country is mentioned, it is referred to in a friendly manner and people are given the impression that Soviet Russia is part of the democratic group of countries.

David Irving comments:

THIS 1939 dispatch by the Polish ambassador is notorious; the Germans published it in a White Book after they captured it in Warsaw files in 1939; Potocki indignantly called it a fake when challenged by Bernard Baruch on its anti-Semitism (Baruch's letter ande the reply are in his papers at Princeton). But I also found the carbon copy of the original in Potocki's papers in the Hoover Library!

For more about this, see Mark Weber's essay, "President Roosevelt's Campaign To Incite War in Europe: The Secret Polish Documents," Journal of Historical Review, Summer 1983.

Thanks to astute propaganda, public sympathy in the U. S. A. is entirely on the side of Red Spain. Side by side with this propaganda an artificial war-panic is created . . . No effort is spared to impress upon the American mind that in the event of a world war the U. S. A. must take an active part in a struggle for freedom and democracy.

President Roosevelt was first in the field to give expression to this hatred of Fascism. He had a two-fold purpose in mind: firstly, he wanted to divert American public opinion from difficult and complicated domestic problems . . .

Secondly, by creating a war-panic . . . he wanted to induce Americans to endorse his huge program of armaments . . . Furthermore, the brutal treatment meted out to the Jews in Germany as well as the problem of the refugees are both factors which intensify the existing hatred of everything connected with German National Socialism . . .

[I]ndividual Jewish intellectuals such as Bernard Baruch, Lehman, Governor of New York State, Felix Frankfurter, the newly appointed Supreme Court Judge, Morgenthau, the Financial Secretary, and other well-known personal friends of Roosevelt have taken a prominent part in this campaign of hatred. All of them want the President to become the protagonist of human liberty, religious freedom and the right of free speech . . .

This particular group of people, who are all in highly placed American official positions and who are desirous of being representatives of 'true Americanism', and as 'Champions of Democracy', are, in point of fact, linked with international Jewry by ties incapable of being torn asunder.

For international Jewry -- so intimately concerned with the interests of its own race -- President Roosevelt's 'ideal' role as a champion of human rights was indeed a godsend. In this way Jewry was able not only to establish a dangerous centre in the New World for the dissemination of hatred and enmity, but it also succeeded in dividing the world into two warlike camps. The whole problem is being tackled in a most mysterious manner. Roosevelt has been given the power to enable him to enliven American foreign policy and at the same time to create huge reserves in armaments for a future war which the Jews are deliberately heading for.
