Is Anti Usury Activism Antisemitic?

Obviously not.

But the question is warranted, because it is an unfortunate fact of life for every dedicated activist for an interest free economy that throughout history Jewry has been intimately linked to usury.

Hundreds of the most brilliant Gentile minds throughout the ages have denounced Jewish usury.

God Himself had this to say through the Holy Quran:
‘That they (the Jews) took usury, though they were forbidden; and that they devoured men’s substance wrongfully;- we have prepared for those among them who reject faith a grievous punishment.’ (sura 4.161)

Please remember the Quran orders Muslims to read the Torah and accept it as from the same Source as the Q’uran.

The simple fact of the matter is: not all usurers are Jews and not all Jews are usurers.
So we resist not Jews, or Jewry, but ‘those among them who reject faith’.

The situation is aggravated by the fact that Nazism was motivated to a high extent by anti usury activism. I despise Hitler’s notion of ‘Ubermenschen’ looking for ‘Lebensraum’. It smacks a little bit too much of Zionism.

The Money Power’s agents will equate anti usury activism with Nazism.
It is called ‘Guilt by Association’.

The number of Jews in powerful financial positions certainly merits the conclusion that Jewish interests are heavily overrepresented in finance. However, the Jewish Lobby, which is dominated by the Money Power and thus does not represent the Jewish People equates this statement with antisemitism.
They call it the ‘old canard of Jewish International Bankers’.

Zionism regularly denounces its enemies as ‘antisemites’. But disagreement about ideas (like Zionism) or actions (like plundering someone else’s land without compensation) is clearly not the same as hating the perpetrator. As Christ recommends: we hate sin, we love the sinner.
Israelis themselves are on record admitting the ‘antisemite’ smear is just a trick.

Jewish elites, nor the Money Power care about Jews. Simple proof of this is the inequitable wealth distribution in Israel, which is one of the worst in the world.

Anti Usury Activism seeks liberation for all those exploited through usury, Gentile and Jewish alike.

The Jewish people are part of the 99%. It is their elites that deserve weariness. We are also weary of Anglo-American elites, Eurocratic elites, Chinese elites and Russian elites, to name just a few.

As it has been said:
“Our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.”

We’ll leave it for the reader to decide.

    I allocated a whole chapter in my book “The Anatomy of Usury” dealing with the socio-economic impacts of usury. I did allude to the rule of Jews referring to historical instances. But the 18 chains of usury i.e. its impacts is probably the most important part of my book.

    The Jewish Problem, Part 3: The Jews in Banking

    • It’s really too bad Berknes quit. He was one of the very, very few to focus on the key link between Usury and Jewry. He was also one of the very few who saw through Paul because of his monetary policies.

      • You may also appreciate the links on the following page:

        Dear Anthony!
        I completely agree on your stance regarding usury and that it is an abominable practice and should be outlawed. And you are probably very right on about it being people of a certain race who have profited from it.

        But, and here comes what I feel is a salient point: We do not gain any points with the world at large by constantly referring to jews and jewry. It works against us. It is the practice we wish to abolish, not a race! We are bound to be misunderstood also by people who would otherwise side with us.

        The fight must be about the issue itself. That is more than a challenging enough battle it seems.

        • The Jews have very much to answer for Nitupsar, even more than just Usury.

          But I basically very strongly agree. I was having a similar discussion in the comments of my latest post, if you are interested!

  3. I live in Switzerland, close to the WIR Bank you mention elsewhere in the blog. Also, the organisation I help out http://www.banks-need-boundaries.net is Austrian-based, I know you’ll like that. They are conducting a referendum for ccc (visit my blog, section “in a nutshell” for more about that), which is based on the Wörgl system. So much for intro. About the Semite thing, I have something to contribute. Not long ago, there was a documentary on German TV about a woman who emigrated to an ultra-orthodox neighborhood in Jerusalem. She married, and had to change her habits, start wearing wigs – the whole shebang. Guess what she and her husband did when they needed money? There’s a friendly office in the area that LENDS OUT MONEY AT ZERO INTEREST. The funds come from people who want to support other locals, and the only thing that creditors must do is say when they intend to pay the money back. One can also get household items, such as furniture or clothing. I wish we’d hear more about ideas such as this, because then people might start copying it. It’s simple enough, isn’t it. Maybe a little too hippie-like, but then again I do see from your pic that you have long hair, haha. But seriously, I stress: the people in this documentary of a highly respected, serious documentary on German public TV were as Jewish as it gets. And lending out money…FOR FREE!!
    PEACE

    This discussion is so very refreshing . Truth is painful and courage is expensive , I had to suffer pain , and pay dearly when I worked so many years in Islamic banking.

  5. tell me what does entfernung refer to in the context die entfernung der juden?

  6. do you make any attempt to actually make sense or know what you are talking about? yeah you really speak german…

  7. ubermenschen? about people? you cant even get it right no matter how hard you try can you… you meant untermeschen… under mentioned or unimportant people, the word means those who do not matter to the working class… jewish money lenders were despised as parasiting off of the working class, whats wrong with that, its entirely correct

  8. Samir Abid Shaikh permalink

    I had 30 years experience in Islamic banking culminated by holding the post of Secretary General of the International Association of Islamic Banks. I recently authored an important and informative book on usury. It looks at the issue from religious , economic and social angles. I invite to please take a look at the book at http://www.Amazon Books The Anatomy of Usury.
    Thank you

    • Hi Samir,

      I’m sorry, I missed this message earlier.

      Thank you for this.

      Would you be willing to send me a copy? I’ll review it!

      • Samir Shaikh permalink

        I will glad to send you a copy of my book. Please send me your postal address . God luck. Samir

        • All right, I sent an email to the emailaddress you used for this comment. Leave another one if that is better for you!

  9. At Resisting Defamation, we are concerned about the anti-diversity and anti-nationality label “gentile.” The diverse white Americans are wildly diverse, and lumping us in with 8% of the world’s population by a single label is as anti-diversity as any thing can be

  10. Just starting to look into Ezra Pound. He says about usury: (in Foreword to Selected Prose, 1972), “I was out of focus, taking a symptom for a cause.The cause is avarice.” In my dictionary avarice is defined as, “extreme greed for wealth or material gain”.
    This begs the question: Do we rally need a monetary system that rewards and encourages extreme greed to the extent that the present interest yielding mechanism does? Does it really serve humanity as a whole well? Of course not. So one of my thoughts on this is that avarice is not only manifested in banksters and so-called high finance. It is present to some degree in all of us if we are not on guard watching and weighing our own motives all the time. We should also work hard to establish a system that serves us better and does not institutionalize greed.

    And I found in Ezra Pound’s writings the following definition of usury:
    “Usury: A charge for the use of purchasing power, levied without regard to production; often without regard to the possibilities of production.”

    Very interesting, isn’t it? Money totally without a heart! Usually we think of usury or interest as a price we pay to borrow money, like a mortgage, but this definition gives slightly different associations; “a charge for the use of purchasing power”. We can all, or at least many of us, do without a mortgage on a house, but we all have to be in possession of at least some purchasing power, right?! So, if this usury or interest or whatever we wish to call it, is levied on all purchasing power, then we are all victims of usurious powers. And it does; in that approx. 45% or so of any product’s price is due to interest. (Hiding behind the more obscure term ‘capital cost’.) “Purchasing power” equals money so usury means a tax on money, plain and simple. And that is on top of all the other taxes we pay. First you have to work hard to make money and pay all your taxes and then there is another tax on spending what you have left!? My friends; this has to stop! Someone wrote a book recently called something like “When is enough, enough?”. It was about our materialistic inclinations. Well, it is clearly enough when it comes to how usury has pervaded and corrupted our world!

    Anti-semitism?! It is an honor to be called an anti-semite. It usually simply means that you’re not afraid to criticize Israel, that’s all. We are just so brainwashed that when we first start thinking honestly about things and discover that the jews are not all innocent little darlings, we almost pee in our pants before we are able to call a spade a spade.

    • I guess you’re right :-) I’m looking for excuses to explain I’m not a bad boy for pointing out the obvious and well established……

      • nitupsar permalink

        Brave people don’t need excuses! Keep up the good work and the results will speak for themselves. The only instance when people like us need to excuse ourselves is when we get too engrossed in our work righting the wrongs of this world and we’re in jeopardy of neglecting our friends and loved ones. Then we can say: “Excuse me while I save the World!” ;)

  12. Hi Anthony,

    I will try again. I admire your desire to state your position without fear of accusations of anti-Semitism.

    But again, I think you are wrong by saying there is no need for interest.
    If no one is compensated for lending money, why would they lend?
    And if there is no interest on savings, why would they save?
    And if there is no savings above consumption, how will banks lend (i.e. on what reserve will they make loans).

    One should not lend with the hope of default (fraud), but interest is clearly legit, from the old and new testaments. The prohibition is always against USURY.

    Whatever you think of Gary North, he is an expert in Christian laws and economics and here he quotes the same parable I use to explain it:

    http://www.garynorth.com/public/4007.cfm

    What you are advocating is actually theft by dilution of the value of the currency.
    I am sure you don’t intend it and I am sure we need a new system, but it cannot be based on the argument that interest per se is invalid.

    That is simply not the case. It is a matter of rationality.
    All trading communities, not just Jewish, have charged interest.
    Banias in India also charged interest.
    Debt bondage is wrong and should be ended. I don’t support any such things, and neither does the current system, where loans are constantly restructured and canceled.

    The problem of our system is debt. If people don’t borrow, they won’t have to pay interest.
    Borrowing is taking something. When you take something, you have to give something in return. That’s interest.

    • Hi Lila,

      A lot of effort has been put in to changing the meaning of the word Usury from interest to excessive interest. But 5 minutes of independent research by yourself will confirm to you that usury throughout the ages meant just that: interest. Some jesuit priests and ‘economic philosphers’ like Bentham etc did the trick. It’s the same as with inflation, that always meant an expanding money supply, but was manipulated to mean ‘rising prices’.

      The whole point about needing interest to motivate people to lend is moot: we have Mutual Credit. it allows interest free credit at almost zero cost without savers. Basically it could also be done with fractional reserve banking, but the banks needed us to believe we have to pay interest to depositors. We needen’t, but as we know, banks are crooks, thieves and liars and this is just one of their con games.

      So the lender does not give anything up: all the money is created the moment it is lent out. Your friend Gary North created a career through explaining that the problem is money creation. But it is not: the problem is Usury.
      You can read all about it here:

      http://realcurrencies.wordpress.com/2012/02/29/gary-norths-bluff-the-lie-hes-been-sitting-on-for-50-years/

      Gary North’s rationalizations for the unforgivable are really nasty. He writes 20 tomes on the Bible’s economics and then summarizes as follows:
      Putting money in the bank and making interest is fine.
      But borrowing money at interest is not.

      I’m not kidding you: this is what he comes up with.
      This is known as: ‘blame the victim’. The borrower is to blame for being enslaved through interest. Making interest by lending, according to Gary, is just fine.

      And enslavement it is. You do realize you pay 300k interest over a 200k loan over 30 years?

      If people don’tborrow? Really? You don’t realize businesses need loans? Who do you think they pass on those costs to? The fact is that 45% of prices are interest. So even if you have no debt, you lose 45% of your income to interest through prices.

      And no debt? How about your house? Should you rent for ever? Do you realize that 75% of rent that is paid is needed by the landlord to pay interest on his mortgage?

      The interest issue is really very pervasive. Read the articles on interest in the ‘interst free economics’ page. You most likely have not been exposed to this data, otherwise you would not have written what you did. But you need to look into it to understand what usury really is. It really is badly, very badly understood, both by the keynesians and the austrians.

      • Lars Andersson permalink

        I am thinking, if the banking system have 100 units of money as money supply (total amount of money) and lend it all for 1% a year, you will need 101 money units to pay the loan back, but there is only 100 money units in the total system. Therefore the money supply must be increased every year or am I wrong?

        • No, you’re not wrong.
          This explains why the economy has to grow forever and why the debt can never be repaid.

    • Gary North is an expert ?! like he is an expert on computer programming and 2000 bugs…..

      A parabel is NOT authorization for interest, just as it is not authorization for slave trading. A sermon on the mountain IS; very much an admonition against putting money in the bank:

      Matthew 6:21

      19 Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal:
      20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal:
      21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.
      22 The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
      23 But if thine eye be evil [greedy], thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness [greed], how great is that darkness !

      If your money[treasure] is in the bank, where is Gary North’s heart ?

      Aside from the interest; fractional reserve banking (lending that which the bank does not have) is criminal activity; why would fine upstanding pious church-goers go into partnership with such institutions ?

      Of course, Gary does not like the concept of Jubilee; just as he doesn’t like the 7th year rest and release; or the division of land; those things are not good for his economy

      Gary refers to Leviticus 25, —oh dear, it is opposed to usury:–
      35 And if thy brother be waxen poor, and fallen in decay with thee; then thou shalt relieve him: yea, though he be a stranger, or a sojourner; that he may live with thee.
      36 Take thou no usury of him, or increase: but fear thy God; that thy brother may live with thee.
      37 Thou shalt not give him thy money upon usury, nor lend him thy victuals for increase.
      38 I am Yahweh your God, which brought you forth out of the land of Egypt, to give you the land of Canaan, and to be your God.

    • May 25, 1998: Gary –from here on Y2K– on the Art Bell show, opens his full frontal assault:–

      http://www.hiddenaudiovault.com/audio/index.php?dir=ufo/Coast%20to%20Coast%20AM/1998/7/07-03-1998%20-%20The%20Y2K%20Problem%20-%20Gary%20North%20-%20Replay%20from%2005-25-1998/

      Towards the end of the interview, a person from Gateway computers –someone who actually knew something about operating systems– calls in and states that there will be no problem on January 1st, 2000; Gary the y2k gets visibly upset and is ready to punch the guy over the phone

      Gary (along with the 3 other horsemen, Bell, Rense, Jones) sold Y2K up to December 31st; and have not, since, said he was wrong; or that he purposly lied to make $400,000

      • It was funny. At the time I actually went for a jobinterview with a company making big bucks ‘securing’ computers against Y2k breakdown…….

  13. Pal, your jewish propangad doesn’t cut it anymore.
    Thanks to internet we now know that the problem are the jews, that there was no holocau$t, that mossad did 911, 7/7, Madrid, Bali, etc.
    We know the truth about the jewish question.
    So your propaganda is meaningless.

    • great! It’s not often that I”m accused of not being ‘anti-semitic’ enough! thanks, i’ll keep working on it…..

    • REN permalink

      Jose…Henry Makow, a Jew, has the best analysis I’ve seen. He states that Jews are really two groups: 1) Mosaic (followers of Moses) and 2) Pharises/Babylonian Talmud followers. Group 2 will use group 1 as human shields. Group 1 are innocents often completely aware of the activities of group 2. However, since Group 2 wraps themselves in the flag/religion and uses group identitity activities, it is hard to tell the wolf from the sheeple.

      It is up to us monetary sheepdogs to protect sheeple Jews of group 1. The Jewish sheeple are innocents -grazing and unaware as are the sheeps of other tribes. All innocents, like children and babies deserve protection from predators.

      Group 2, though – the predator wolves in sheeps clothing are fair game. Be careful though, being called an anti-semite is their ad-hominem of choice, and once sprayed with their predatory skunk juice it is hard to rinse off. Find a way to cull out the wolves and be smart. Some from group 1 may even turn on you, but they don’t know any better as their simple sheep mind cannot comprehend group 2. Calling Jews as “the problem” is completely counter productive, and is factually wrong.

    Could you give an authorative source for the “Uebermenschen” idea, allegedly held by Hitler?

    because I can’t find a reference to it in Mein Kampf, neither anywhere else.

      Read Nietzsche, Hitler adopted his philosophy.

      • well…some would say both were Jewish inventions.

        • Chris permalink

          Nietzsche yes Hitler no

          • And I thought you read the protocols?!!!??

            they claim Nietsche as one of their own inventions.

            • And how could they not? ‘god is dead’? lol!

            • Oops sloppy reading! You said it the other way around.

              Don’t agree there either though: Hitler was a quarter Rothschild. His whole Nazism was textbook case of the Protocols implemented.

  16. I think that all this is irrelevant. The question is a technical one not an ethnic one. Interest is simply wrong mathematically it is a fallacy, see:

    http://bibocurrency.org/English/The%20Scam%20short%20form.htm

    We just have to concentrate on the math and the logic all the rest is a red herring.

    Marc

    • I agree, and I don’t.

      Yes, it’s nicer to keep it all ‘scientific’. Spares all sorts of feelings.

      No, it’s not the whole story. Many people are not interested in math.

      And I’m also interested in Justice. I thirst for it.

      Read the “Capitalism:…” at capitalism.net, it’s free to download. May first need to read “Human Action”. Or at least buy and read much shorter and easier book “Meltdown” by Thomas E. Woods Jr. Then you’ll know much more than what really is interest on capital.
