Eckart's biographer, Louis L. Snyder, has argued: "By 1923 Eckart's connections in Munich, added to Hitler's oratorical gifts, gave strength and prestige to the fledgling Nazi political movement. Eckart accompanied Hitler at rallies and was at his side in party parades.
While Hitler stirred the masses, Eckart wrote panegyrics to his friend. The two were inseparable. Hitler never forgot his early sponsor... Eckart, he said, was his North Star... He spoke emotionally of his fatherly friend, and there were often tears in his eyes..." Dietrich Eckart died of a heart attack in 1923 at age 59. His book, Bolshevism from Moses to Lenin: Dialogue Between Hitler and I was published the following year. In the excerpt below, Hitler appears to understand the meaning of Judaism. Most Jews are not interested in the jeopardy in which Judaism puts them, along with everyone else.
"And I will set the Egyptians against the Egyptians: and they shall fight every one against his brother and every one against his neighbor; city against city and kingdom against kingdom. And the spirit of Egypt shall fall in the midst thereof, and I will destroy the counsel thereof: and they shall seek to the idols, and to the charmers, and to them that have familiar spirits, and to the wizards." (Isaiah 19:2-3).
"Lord," [Hitler] said, "whoever doesn't become sickened and nauseated upon making a closer acquaintance with the Talmud can put himself on display in a circus sideshow."
"The local sideshow," I [Eckart] remarked, "has certain limits on the degree of abnormality it will exhibit. The young student from Tubingen who could gulp down half-a-dozen toads with gusto has been its greatest attraction till now. No one, though, has a stomach capable of digesting even this one passage from the Talmud: "Rabbi Johanan said the penis of Rabbi Ishmael was as large as a six-kab  wineskin; according to others, three kabs. The penis of Rabbi Papa was as large as one of the baskets of the inhabitants of Harpania.'  The high-minded competitive zeal of the three old rabbis could knock an unprepared person off his chair."
"One finds a whole series of such pleasantries in this magnificent example of a religious book," he said disgustedly. "The real clincher, however, is that non-Jewish girls 'who are less than three years and one day old' are considered 'suitable' for rabbis, since Moses had written: 'But all the women children that have not known a man by lying with him, keep alive for yourselves,' namely, for the rabbis.
"The most abominable perversity and the most tedious syllable-thrashing in the same breath. What goes on within Jewish heads must really be frightful."
"They," I returned, "are of a contrary opinion on that. Otherwise their mirror image, the
Talmud, wouldn't inform us that 'the Israelites are more pleasing before God than the angels,' or that 'the world was created on behalf of the Israelites alone,' or that 'whoever slaps a Jew in the face has struck God himself,' or that 'the sun illuminates the earth and the rain makes it fertile only because Israelites live on it,' and more of the same sort of modesty."
"I really doubt that there is any sort of medical encyclopedia which contains terms suitable for describing the Jewish megalomania," he said. "But what an incredible talent they have for disguising it!"
"Their book Sirach," I completed, "howls: 'Terrify all peoples; lift your hand up against strangers, that they may see your power. The fire of wrath must burn them. Crush the heads of the princes, who are our enemies!' (Sirach 36:2-12). And the Schulchan Aruch rages: 'Pour out, oh Lord, your fury over the goyim, who do not know you, and over the kingdoms which do not invoke your name. Pursue them in wrath and extinguish them beneath God's heaven!' (Schulchan Aruch, Orach Gaijim, 480). They make the same threat in both places, with the distinction that the Schulchan Aruch emphasizes that all must be exterminated who do not swear on Jehova."
"And with such an abominable moral doctrine on his conscience," he began to boil, "that marvel of modern Jewry, Moses Mendelssohn,  had the impudence to assert that 'dominion over the earth belongs by right to Jewry.' Because of their religion! As a trained Talmudist he certainly knew his way around in the whole, vile thing -- those extracts we have just quoted are only a tiny fraction -- but he still ... oh, this lying, this utterly mendacious pack, the very essence of the lie!"
"All Berlin," I said, "buzzed with praise for the 'wise', for the 'noble' Moses. But Goethe wasn't deceived: 'Jewish trivia!' was his comment on the pious trickery. It struck no one as odd that the incomparable Moses philosophized himself in the twinkling of an eye from a simple,
private tutor to the powerfully wealthy founder of the banking house of Mendelssohn, thus avoiding by a wide detour the eye of the needle. This benefactor of mankind slyly promoted the idea that the Jewish people constitute a religious community only. Today this still constitutes a favorite nostrum of the Jews. A certain Dr. Ruppin has revealed why. 'Special laws against the Jews,' he tells us as he chuckles and rubs his hands together, 'have always been directed against the religious aspects of Jewry, since this sphere of activity provided the
only easily conceivable target for legislation. Anti-Semitism has never really been inimical to the Jewish religion, but has been indifferent to it.'  So! We now have an admission that their 'religion' serves a very useful diversionary purpose. Anyone, however, who have become
acquainted with it has found out that what the Jews call their religion coincides exactly with their character."
"That's what they themselves say," he said. "They are incessantly boasting, too, that their religion is such a masterful creation that it stands alone in the world. Then bring the Talmud forward! It contains the Jewish religion in its purest form -- theology, dogmatics, morality, everything together in the same place. Why do they hold back the magnificent book so nervously, if indeed 'the millennia have given the breadth of its existence' to it? As born benefactors of mankind, they should have long since made it accessible to the general populace. Instead, it still hasn't been completely translated, even today. And who in the devil has read what there is of it? One would think they are afraid some medieval church is still waiting to burn it for heresy.
"Some religion! This wallowing in filth, this hate, this malice, this arrogance, this hypocrisy, this pettifogging, this incitement to deceit and murder -- is that a religion? Then there has never been anyone more religious than the devil himself. It is the Jewish essence, the Jewish character, period!"
