Alice Bailey: The "Glamour of Jew-Hatred"
May 13, 2010"Just as many British people and the preponderance of the British race are reincarnated Romans, so many Germans [Nazis] are reincarnated Jews [Zionists]. Hence the similarity of their points of view. It is a family quarrel and there is nothing more terrible than this."
In 1975, I bought a copy of Alice Bailey's "Glamour: A World Problem" (1938) in a creepy old house in Little Rock that housed Cora Deaver's Center of Psychic Science (w/occult bookstore and reading room). Bailey (1880-1949) was a leader of the Theosophical Society and the Lucis Trust, both important NWO cults. I was struck by an odd passage in which she was clearly referring to the Nazis and Zionists without using those terms. She explained to her readers that the apparent animosity between the 'Aryans' and Jews was that they were two sides of the same coin. i.e. Nazism was Teutonic Zionism. Keep in mind that the Nazis were spawned by the Theosophist Cult and cooperated with Zionists before and during the World War Two.
Extract from "Glamour: A World Problem"
"The line that [the Nazis] have taken against the Jewish people, might be
turned with almost equal justification against the Jews themselves.
The latter have always been separative and have regarded themselves
as "the chosen of the Lord" and have never proved
assimilable in any nation. The same can be said of the Germans...
mention this because I am going to ask you to deal with that ancient
and world-wide glamour--the glamour of the hatred of the Jew. In
this [Theosophical] group, there are those who are, in their thought at least,
violently anti-German; there are others who are definitely, though
intelligently, anti-Jew. I would ask those in both these groups to recognize the problem with which they are faced. It is a problem
which is so very ancient and deeply rooted in the consciousness of
the race that it is far bigger than the individual can possibly
vision; the individual point of view is consequently so limited that
constructive usefulness is noticeably impaired.
After all, my
brothers, the point of view of the "underdog" is not
necessarily the only one or necessarily always the correct one. Both
the Germans and the Jews merit our impersonal love, particularly as
they are both guilty (if I may use such a term) of the same basic
errors and faults. The German is powerfully race conscious; so is the
Jew. The German is separative in his attitude to the world; so is the
Jew. The German insists today on racial purity, a thing upon which
the Jew has insisted for centuries.
A small group of Germans are anti-Christian; so are an equally small number of Jews. I could continue piling up these resemblances but the above will suffice. Therefore, your dislike of one group is not more warranted than your refusal to recognize any justification for the activities and attitudes of the other.
Like frequently repudiates and swings away from like, and the Germans and the Jews are curiously alike. Just as many British people and the preponderance of the British race are reincarnated Romans, so many Germans are reincarnated Jews. Hence the similarity of their points of view. It is a family quarrel and there is nothing more terrible than this.
I am going to ask you to take the Germans and the Jews into your group meditation and pour out your group love upon both these divisions of your brothers in the human family. See to it that before you begin your meditation you have freed yourselves--emotions and mind--from any latent antagonisms, from any hatreds, from any preconceived ideas of right or wrong but that you simply fall back upon the love of your souls, remembering that both Jews and Germans are souls as you are and identical in their origin, their goal and their life experience with yours.
As you pour out the stream of pure white light (as Stage III instructs you), see to it that it pours through you with purity and clarity as one stream. Then see it bisect into equal quantities or proportions--one stream of living light and love going to the Jews and the other to the German peoples.
THE "GLAMOUR OF SEPARATENESS
are forces which you may personally regard as separativeness or as
the cause of separation. I would remind you that the favorite views
and cherished beliefs of those to whom you are mentally opposed
(often under the guise of a strenuous adherence to what you regard as
right principles) are to those who hold them equally right; they feel
that your views are erroneous and they regard them as separative in
their effect and as the basis of trouble.
They are, in their place,
as sincere as you are and as eager for the achievement of the right
attitude as you feel yourself to be. This is something often
forgotten and I would remind you of it. I might also illustrate this
point by pointing out to you that the hatred or the dislike (if
hatred is too strong a word) that any of you may feel for the
activities of the German Government, and for the line that they have
taken against the Jewish people, might be turned with almost equal
justification against the Jews themselves.
The latter have always
been separative and have regarded themselves as "the chosen of
the Lord" and have never proved assimilable in any nation. The
same can be said of the Germans, and from many they evoke the same
reaction as they mete out to the Jew, though not the physical
Neither attitude, as you well know, is justifiable from
the angle of the soul; they are both equally wrong, and this is a
point of view which the Jew and the anti-Jew must eventually
understand and, through understanding, bring to an end.
