Author’s conspiracy book banned in France
by Kevin Alfred Strom
HAVING BEEN THROUGH (and ultimately rejected) the “right wing” and conservative movements early in my life, I have seen a great many books purporting to expose political or financial conspiracies. Quite a few are worthless. A significant number of these are so ludicrous as to actually serve the cause of those they ostensibly criticize, who may indeed covertly finance the nuttier tomes. A few are indispensable. Many also fall into the category of interesting, though flawed.
(Some fun favorites of mine in the worthless or bogus categories: The “militia” writer who claimed that most of us would die when the Earth passed through a “poison gas belt” in 1991, and who thoughtfully offered for sale special gas masks to save us; the prolific Spotlight advertiser who warned us about the giant crack that the Illuminati were going to engineer under the Atlantic Ocean, “proved by Bible prophecy”; and the 9-11 theorists who claim that there were no terrorists and no jets — all was a 3-D holographic projection. I could go on indefinitely.)
In general, I think that it’s insane to believe that groups — especially intensely ethnocentric minorities — never conspire; but believing that most of the evils of the world are the work of a “master conspiracy” is also pathological, in my opinion.
Dutch writer Robin de Ruiter’s book, Worldwide Evil and Misery, dealing with some of the nefarious actions of the Rothschilds and other financial dynasties, falls into the interesting, though flawed, category. His thesis is that these families, through Zionism and other movements controlled by them, are, under the guise of “democracy” and “free markets,” instituting a world government which no one will be able to challenge and from whose jurisdiction no man or woman will be able to escape.
In the course of the book, de Ruiter discusses some subjects that the Jewish/Zionist power structure considers taboo: the Khazar genetic contribution to today’s Jewish population (which is real but which I also believe is less than — and much less significant than — Koestler and de Ruiter assert); the connection and coöperation between Zionists and National Socialist Germany; anti-Gentile and anti-Christian passages in the Talmud; the interesting (though mutually exclusive) claims by researchers 1) that about half of Ashkenazi Jews are genetically distinct from all other human populations, except for a small admixture with other Jewish groups (Dr. Richard Villems) and 2) that Jews and Palestinians are genetically indistinguishable (Professor Arnaiz-Villena); and the covert promotion of anti-Jewish pogroms and atrocities by Zionists to encourage Jewish support for, and migration to, Israel.
Thanks to the generosity of the author, you can read the chapters of the book dealing directly with Jews and Zionism free via an online PDF file. The only thing Mr. de Ruiter asks is that those offering the file also show a link to his publisher’s page.
De Ruiter sees National Socialism more as a facet of Illuminati/Zionist intrigue than as an instrument of German nationalism or European racial-nationalism. This is quite wrong, but connections between the German government of the time and Zionism certainly existed.
De Ruiter is no World War II revisionist: he accepts the 6 million tale uncritically (which is just as unrealistic, I think, as the claims that there were no summary executions of Jews by Germans during the war). But that wasn’t enough to save him from legal persecution for stating the truth as he saw it.
In his chapter on Zionism, de Ruiter says “If we analyze the roots of Zionism and make amends to the principles of the ideology that lays claim to Palestine, we cross an unwritten line. We have then almost committed a crime, and, before we know it, we appear in court. In order to prevent this I am forced to incorporate all critical quotes in this chapter about Zionism, from erudite Jewish researchers, important Jewish authors and rabbis. Many of them complain about the blurred vision of their own supporters.”
When he says that critics of Zionism, before they know it, “appear in court,” de Ruiter knows whereof he speaks. The French edition of this book, part of the Livre Jaune series, was suppressed in France, although one can still read some of the volumes online, including a large excerpt from the banned book.
According to de Ruiter, he first published the book in Mexico in 1989. But the French-language edition was legally suppressed under the “race speech” censorship laws in that country — the same sorts of laws which are gradually being introduced in the U.S. under the guise of “hate crime” legislation.
De Ruiter stated in an interview with me: “All other ideologies, opinions and ideas can be openly examined, analyzed and criticized. We can happily discuss politics and criticize the Christian faith or Islam. We can also turn against any government, and the biggest risk we might encounter is that of receiving polemics and retort.
“There remains, however, one ultimate exception. For one theme, freedom of speech is absolutely not valid: Zionism! …If one criticizes Zionism at all, then the reaction is conflicting and hostile. The subject of Zionism has almost become taboo. So that’s the reason that the bloodlines book was banned in France. The book was published under the name LIVRE JAUNE No. 7 and talked, among other things, about the descendants of Judah (Jewish people), Zionism, and the foundation of the state of Israël. The reason the book was banned was because of my critique of Zionism.”
I would have put that differently. I would say that it is criticism of Jews that has become the ultimate taboo.
De Ruiter is a popularizer, not a theorist or philosopher like, say, Kevin MacDonald or William Pierce, and those conversant with those men’s work will not find much that is essential in Worldwide Evil and Misery, though the breadth of material cited is impressive and some of it may be new to all but the most indefatigable researchers. (For me, the study by Richard Villems was a new discovery which I’ll be looking into more closely.)
But for those whose religious background (de Ruiter takes scripture seriously) or level of political development makes the full acceptance of the biocultural aspects of the Jewish problem hard to accept, it has some value. And all men who believe in free thought and free speech will be outraged by the attempted suppression of this book in Europe.
