204 The Story of the Jewish Defense League

b“There is Jewish destitution here. There is an erosion of bJewish economic and political power here. There is a tidal bwave of assimilation and drug culture here. There is reverse bdiscrimination here. Above all, there is governmental bapathy here, despite the existence of Jewish advisors and bother lackeys, an apathy that borders on contempt for the bJew who will not ever do anything drastic despite his plight.

b“There is Jewish poverty in the United States. While most bJews are, of course, ‘international bankers,’ the fact remains bthat in New York City, the third largest poverty group is that bof the Jew. While Jewish Establishment groups and social- baction rabbis beat their breasts and tell us to ‘give a damn’ babout other minorities, who cares and who acts about the bJewish poor who eke out a living as factory workers, labor- bers, and low-paid civil servants?

b“There are Jewish defense organizations who can come bup with a battery of lawyers for other groups, or to fight a bXmas stamp or government aid to parochial schools that are bon the verge of bankruptcy. One searches in vain for them bwhen the Small Business Administration turns down poor bJews because it has orders to loan money only to Blacks, bPuerto Ricans, Mexicans, and Indians. Let a bearded Has- bsidic Jew try to get a job in a hundred different areas of bemployment and then let us see how much effort has been bmade for him by our Jewish groups. The Jewish organiza- btion that leaped to the defense of a noted Jewish singer who bwas denied the right to buy into a luxury cooperative will not baid the poverty-stricken Jew who is discriminated against bbecause of his beard and black coat (and who cannot ‘pass’ bany easier than a Black man).

b“The antipoverty agencies who sit upon hundreds of mil- blions of dollars (and more) arrogantly deny Jewish poor btheir proper share of the funds. Anti-Semitism within these bagencies is blatant and militants who are employed by them bhave been guilty of physical attacks upon Jews within the bpoor neighborhoods and during voting for anti-poverty bcouncils. Who cares or acts on these? Certainly not the bJewish lackeys who serve as aides to mayors, nor, unfortu- bnately, Jewish organizations whose reason for being is to bhelp the Jew.
