New Jersey rabbi alleges that Palestinians are “unruly animals"

Dealing with Savages
By Rabbi Steven Pruzansky
Congregation Bnai Yeshurun 
Teaneck, New Jersey


"Anyone who...throws a stone at a Jew should be shot – with real bullets.

"The media should be barred…

“...a Palestinian state will never be created between the river and the sea. There will be no non-Jewish national entity tolerated…"

How does a human being (or two) walk into a synagogue and begin hacking at worshippers who are immersed in prayer, leaving behind a trail of blood, victims, grief and horror? The question is misplaced because no “human being” could do such a thing. It would have to be a beast in human form, a relic from primitive times before true humans became civilized. 

The Arab-Muslim animals that span the globe chopping, hacking and merrily decapitating – from Iraq to Jerusalem to New York to Oklahoma, and places in between and beyond – are a discredit even to the term “animal.” Most animals are not that brutal. 

The real issue confronting Israel for decades and the civilized world today is what to do about the proliferation of savages who lust for blood and derive inspiration from their religious texts? 

One example not to follow is that of President Obama’s. In one of his more ludicrous statements in the last few months – amid a healthy competition – he decried the attack, the loss of life “on both sides (!),” and then added this gem: that the “overwhelming majority of Palestinians…want to live in peace.” Really? And based on what data was that determination made? That only tens of thousands of “Palestinians” rejoiced after the massacre, singing and dancing in the streets, distributing candies and sweets, praising the vicious slaughter and the slaughterers – and not hundreds of thousands? Polls in the PA reveal widespread support for the murder of Jews so what exactly is he talking about? 

Obama seems to be as much an expert on “Palestinian” society as he is about Islam generally. His incessant protestation that ISIS distorts Islam is based on…what exactly? ISIS and sundry other radical groups seem to feel that they are fulfilling the dictates of Islam – and the few Muslims who disagree meet their fate at the business end of a machete. Actions speak louder than words. Obama’s expertise in Islam has led him to cede the Middle East to the most ruthless forces, embrace the radical Muslim Turk Erdogan as an American ally, and facilitate Iran’s acquisition of nuclear weapons. Perhaps with a nuclear weapon, Iran will be civilized, or so the thinking goes. Little can or should be expected from Obama or from the Europeans, mired as they are in cultural deterioration, moral relativism, population decline and Muslim-inspired Jew hatred. Sweden just became the latest country to recognize “Palestine.” Sweden (!), which willfully encourages those who favor the shechita of Jews even as they themselves ban the shechita (ritual slaughter) of animals. How is that for misplaced priorities and corrupt values? And we should be clear, as the wave of recognition sweeps Europe in the coming year: any country that recognizes a “Palestine” is endorsing the mass slaughter of Jews. 

But Israel has to act, especially as the violence has spiraled out of control. The dynamic needs to change, dramatically. At a certain point, the unrestrained behavior of unruly animals becomes the fault of the zookeeper, not the animals. What can be done? 

Clearly, many things can be done that should not be in print, but the general approach needs to be the abandonment of defensive, reactive moves and an embrace of offensive, anticipatory, and proactive moves. The Arabs need to feel that they are paying a heavy price for murdering Jews. Right now, not only do they not pay a heavy price but the murderers and their families benefit. Here are some suggestions to change the dynamic, and they are all based on a single premise: that there is a war  for the land of Israel that is being waged, and the Arabs who dwell in the land of Israel are the enemy in that war and must be vanquished

Israel should make clear that a Palestinian state will never be created between the river and the sea. There will be no non-Jewish national entity tolerated. The Muqata in Ramallah should be destroyed and “President” Abbas should be incarcerated as a war criminal. 

Terrorists will be killed, not captured (no great loss, as their fondest wish is for martyrdom). Their bodies will not be returned to their families but will be cremated, and perhaps the ashes buried with deceased pigs. The homes of the extended family (up to and including first cousins) of the terrorist will be destroyed, and they will all be deported to the Muslim country of their choice. A second terrorist in a village results in the destruction of that village and the deportation of its residents to a friendlier country. (If the homes in that village would be useful to Jews, then they should be retained and given to Jews after the evil residents are deported. Or, as they used to say in Israel, disengaged.) 

Anyone who riots or throws a stone at a Jew should be shot – with real bullets. Rubber bullets and tear gas should be sold to the Amish. Those who wish to be martyred and who celebrate death should be accommodated as often as possible. The media should be barred from scenes of violence, cell service canceled and cameras confiscated, like in most war zones. In the meantime, Arab access to the Temple Mount will be denied for at least six months, and Jewish prayer will be allowed thenceforth at permissible locations, such as they might be. It is unconscionable crime to deny Jews the right to move their lips on the Temple Mount! And those who refrain from ascending the Mount for halachic reasons will surely agree that if Jews cannot be there, certainly Muslims cannot be there. And perhaps the day will come in the near future when the mosque and the dome can be uplifted intact and reset in Saudi Arabia, Syria or wherever it is wanted. (The Arab countries can fight over it if they want.) That itself will preclude any Arab claim to Jerusalem. The same restrictions and limitations would pertain to the Cave of Machpelah in Hevron (Hebron). Any terror emanating from Hevron results in closure of the facility to Muslims. In fact, we should apply to Muslim holy places the exact same respect and deference they have shown to Jewish, Christian, Buddhist and Hindu holy sites across the world. That seems only fair. 

As noted here in the past, measures need to be implemented that encourage Arab emigration – the payment of stipends, compensation for property, etc. Thy must be made to feel that that they have no future in the land of Israel – no national future and no individual future.

Start with the Arabs of Judea and Samaria who are stateless; they deserve to find a country in which they can be full citizens and make their contribution to society. Let them demonstrate in an Arab country their dexterity with bombs and their grace with machetes. (If Israeli Arabs persist in their support of terror – now at a low level, but who can predict the future? – they should forfeit their citizenship and be returned to military rule as it was before 1966.) Of course, those who wish to stay and be peaceful, acknowledging the sovereignty of the Jewish people in the land of Israel, are welcome to stay. But an enemy is an enemy – and one who wants to kill you, maim you, blow up your buses, trains and restaurants, run over your pedestrians and conquer your capital is an enemy, and a ruthless one at that. Why so many Israelis do not perceive that is an enduring enigma, an enigma that has enabled the relentless slaughter of Jews. There are other measures as well but here is the problem: not a single method above will be enacted. That is why right now there is absolutely no deterrent to the murder and maiming of Jews. Indeed, it is exactly the opposite. The slaughter of Jews is incentivized in Arab society. Often the terrorist is killed (martyrdom and virgins), lionized and immortalized with the naming after him of streets, schools and camps (eternity), and his family receives a monthly pension of thousands of dollars to compensate for his lost earnings (financial reward). Under those circumstances, and given the primitive culture in which they are raised, it is an irrational act not to want to murder Jews. That is the dynamic that has to change. Yet, despite everything, much of Israeli society still clings to the illusion that “peace” is possible with these savages, or at least that someone, somewhere, sometime, will sign a peace treaty with them. That illusion is slowly receding, but it is still abetted by the elites of Israeli society, especially because it is being propounded and pushed by Western governments like the US and in the European Union. There is no more deadly illusion on the planet, except for construing ISIS as a cold summer treat enjoyed by children. Rational thinkers will argue that the “world” will never tolerate such draconian sanctions, that countries will sever diplomatic relations with Israel, cut off trade ties and completely isolate the Jewish state. And, in the short term, much of that is true. But is there an alternative short of national suicide and self-immolation? Israel has much to offer the world, without which many people in the world would suffer, that such alienation will be short-lived. 

And Israel’s pivot to Asia (much more successful than Obama’s clumsy and failed one) has allowed Israel to strike close relations with the two largest nations on the globe, China and India. Neither country is moved in its foreign affairs by a moral impulse and both countries are anxious for military ties with Israel. And do not overestimate the popularity of the Palestinians in the rest of the world; truth be told, they are reviled even in the Arab world, perhaps even more than in Europe. 

We should not ignore as well the rank hypocrisy that promotes the double standard that cripples Israel’s ability to defend itself. Case in point: this week, Egypt evicted thousands of Arabs along the Gaza border and destroyed hundreds of their homes for “security reasons.” No courts, no appeals, no process. Some of the homes were being used to conceal tunnels, so they all had to go. Moral? Not in normal times, but Egypt recognizes it is at war with a heartless enemy, and that enemy and its population deserve no accommodation. Even Jen Psaki found no fault in Egypt’s actions, the phony. 

If only Jews would realize the same and stop fantasizing about convincing that enemy of our own goodness. Here is one exercise that should help: the same enemy that lynched soldiers in Ramallah and tore them apart is the same enemy that butchered holy Jews this week in Har Nof is the same enemy that kidnapped and murdered three precious boys just a few months ago. It’s the same enemy. And that enemy rides our buses, shops in our malls, drives on our roads and lives just two miles from us. The same enemy. Do you know where that enemy is, and what he is plotting right now? Change the dynamic. Change the terms of the debate. Change the rules of war. And change the outcome that the enemy now anticipates. Such will save Jewish lives and even bring redemption. 
[END QUOTE; emphasis supplied by Michael Hoffman]

MICHAEL HOFFMAN’S AFTERWORD

The rabbis nostrums are all based on a major omission: the crimes the Israelis have visited upon the Palestinians  most recently the 2100 people killed this past summer by Israel. Because the Talmud Bavli teaches that goyim have lesser souls compared with Jews,” when reciting the litany of violence in the Israeli state 2100 dead Palestinians from the summer are not worth mentioning in November.

Even though this rabbi is being denounced by liberal Judaics as not representative of other rabbis and Orthodox Judaism, it is a remarkable coincidence that the mass media in the U.S. have followed this rabbi's example in forgetting to mention the recent massacre of 2100 Palestinians when the media reported the terror attack on the synagogue in Jerusalem.

Selective amnesia enables Israeli mass murder 
The synagogue attack was reported without context, ignoring the on-going holocaust against the Palestinians. We expect this from an Orthodox rabbi. But it is a betrayal of the fundamental ethics of journalism when the New York Times, L.A. Times and Wall Street Journal conform to the racist standard established by the Babylonian Talmud. Worse, it ensures that more Palestinians will be killed: Israelis know the deaths of Palestinians will quickly be flushed down the memory hole, where most of the Talmudic crimes against goyim are consigned.

French police search historian’s house

Police search Professor Faurisson’s house  

On the evening of Wednesday, November 19, 2014, two police officers from the nearby city of Clermont-Ferrand, one of whom a commander, went to the home of Professor Faurisson in Vichy in order to conduct a search: they were looking to seize a computer and certain documents. They found neither the computer nor the documents.

The Strasbourg office of the LICRA (“international league against racism and anti-semitism”) had requested the local public prosecutor to take action against the appearance, on an “Unofficial Blog” of professor Faurisson, of two articles about the wartime camp of Natzweiler-Struthof in Alsace: 

“It is time to have done with the Struthof ‘gas chamber’ and its 86 ‘victims’”

“Note on the alleged Struthof gas chamber”

Declaring its lack of jurisdiction, the Strasbourg prosecutor’s office had referred the case to that in the small town of Cusset on the outskirts of Vichy, where an investigating magistrate had, in turn, ordered the aforementioned Clermont-Ferrand police commander to investigate.

French law authorises searches only between 6am and 9pm (however, if a search has begun at 8.45pm it may continue beyond 9pm). But the professor – whose case is decidedly a particular one – can also see the BAC (anti-violent crime section) suddenly appear at his house in the middle of the night. This has happened twice, while thus far there have been a total of five searches.
This November 19 the commander, upon taking leave, said that his present “visit” would be followed by other “visits”.

The professor’s wife, aged 82 and with a heart condition, finds it quite hard to bear this state of things. She worries about the health of her husband, nearly 86, recently a heart attack victim himself and also victim, over the years, of ten physical assaults (none of which has ever given rise to a serious search for the attackers). In particular, she was disturbed at seeing one of her grandsons, a 22 year-old student staying at the house that day, having to undergo questioning, show his own computer and sign a statement. That said, the two officers assigned to this job were of irreproachable conduct from beginning to end.

Ferguson and mystical toponomy

Ferguson Mystica

Ferguson, Missouri (northeast St. Louis), sits precisely midway between Cairo, Illinois ("Little Egypt") and Hannibal, Missouri (the Hannibal name is  related to Baal as well as the archetypal enemy of ancient Rome).  

Ferguson is also precisely in the middle of two alignments of Route 66, the I-270 frontage road to the north, and I-70 to the south.  

Ferguson is the only city on the Great River (the Mississippi River, which in Little Egypt lore is seen as symbolic of the Nile), thus situated.  

St. Louis has the "Gateway to the West" (cosmic graveyard in Egyptian legends) Arch.    

There are many "police brutality" incidents in a country of 300 million people.  The deep cover occult Cryptocracy appears to have exacerbated the troubled relations between the police and the residents of Ferguson over the years in order to conjure, out of all proportion, an incident for media magnification, for the potential psy-war, mind-manipulative effect it would have on the national psyche, in order to steer the herd in a particular direction.

 The landmarks cited may be control sigils for whatever the Cryptocrats have in mind as the media play this to the hilt.

Synagogue killings on the site of an Israeli massacre of Palestinians



Editor’s Note: The moral lesson of the “Nazi Holocaust” is supposed to be that humanity must not forget what happened. Yet many of the beneficiaries of “Holocaust” sympathy and reparations have worked to make certain that  the world does not remember the mass murder of Arabs by Israelis. The 2100 Palestinians killed by the Israelis last summer are now all but forgotten in the US media; and the cruel irony of having this week’s synagogue attack in west Jerusalem occur on the site of the village of Deir Yassin, where the massacre of Palestinians by Israeli terrorists occurred, and where the village once stood, is completely lost on the oblivious US media. For this writer, as a student of the religion of Orthodox Judaism, the media’s indifference would appear to be the result of having drank too often at the trough of Talmudic mentality, in which the lives of Judaic persons are more valued and highly prized than those of their enemies and victims. Prof. McGowan elaborates in a note to Mr. Avnery:

In the wake of the recent events in the synagogue at Har Nof, Uri Avnery has written an article which you can read here. Like all his work, Avnery’s article is informative, original and beautifully written. But it has a glaring omission. 

11/21/14 

Dear Uri: 

I know that you realize that the Har Nof neighborhood in West Jerusalem, where four rabbis and a police officer were recently murdered, is built on the lands of Deir Yassin, the Arab village which no longer exists, that was the site of the 1948 massacre, which according to Menachem Begin, was pivotal to the founding of the Jewish state. This was an early massacre in the Nakba (“catastrophe” i.e. the Israeli conquest of Palestine); there were many more to follow, but it struck fear among Palestinians, causing many to flee, also giving the Jews an angle for campaigns of terror, which they visited on other Palestinian villages, basically “Get out or we’ll do to you what we did in Deir Yassin.”

It is interesting to ask why the media, which has been all over this synagogue massacre, mentions nothing about what happened on this site on April 9, 1948?



Why does Wikipedia fail to even cite Deir Yassin in its history of Har Nof?




The picture (above) of Har Nof is taken from Yad Vashem, the most prestigous Holocaust memorial.  The water tower at the top right is next to the main buildings of Deir Yassin, which today serves as a mental hospital, mostly for those suffering with too much religion, an affliction also known as "The Jerusalem Syndrome."

At Yad Vashem all visitors, and especially American politicians, are repeatedly told to "Never forget."  At Deir Yassin the message is "Never mind.”  


There is not even a signpost among the old Arab buildings to indicate that it was once a prosperous Arab village of about 750 people.


In building the Har Nof settlement much of the Deir Yassin cemetery was destroyed.  The rest is now littered with trash and condoms.  Har Nof children have been seen digging up Arab graves.  (Imagine the outcry had they been desecrating Jewish graves.)  Apartment buildings of Har Nof are built on the old quarry where villagers were executed and their bodies dumped and burned on April 10, 1948.

The ironies are breathtaking.  But some of us still remember.

Video game "Assassin’s Creed Unity” angers French Leftists

How do you define a Liberator?

Jean-Luc Mélenchon, a "firebrand" left-wing politician and onetime presidential contender in France, told "France Info" radio that a video game which has sold 80 million copies, Assassin’s Creed Unity, denigrated the French revolutionary Maximilian Robespierre as a “monster,” while ignoring his role as a “liberator” in leading a movement that gave Judaic persons the right to vote and tried to do the same for women.

In truth, Robespierre was a terrorist who guillotined anyone who crossed him. Toward the end of his rule that included his own comrades, until he was stopped by a Thermidorian reaction and beheaded, like his many victims.

No matter how many innocents he killed however, (including thousands of Catholics in the Vendée), French Leftist Mélenchon believes that the fact that Robespierre gave Judaic persons the right to vote makes this mass murderer a "liberator."

The 4 Jacobs and the 2100 Esaus

The 4 Jacobs and the 2100 Esaus

By Michael Hoffman

As background to yesterday’s tragic events in Jerusalem, Prof. Daniel McGowan of Deir Yassin Remembered, has confirmed that the Jerusalem synagogue where the attack on the rabbis occurred, is located on land in the Hasidic Har Nof district of West Jerusalem, that was stolen from the Palestinians 66 years ago. 

Har Nof is on the site of the Palestinian village of Deir Yassin, which was obliterated by Israeli  Irgun" terrorists on April 9, 1948. More than a hundred Palestinian men, women and children were systematically murdered and the village was razed, so that in 2014 Talmudists could worship themselves in a synagogue, on a site where civilians were massacred and then completely forgotten by a ‘Holocaust’-obsessed world. (Holocaust" saint Elie Wiesel served as a propaganda writer for the Irgun). 

The NY TimesWall Street Journal, CNN, CBS, Fox,  ad nauseam, report none of this, even as they express hypocritical outrage that Putin’s Russia is opening more of what they term “propaganda” media outlets around the world; toward their own propaganda they are utterly indifferent.

We detect certain familiar leitmotifs in media commentary on the attack at the synagogue, representative of theological doctrines and fixations of the religion of the Talmud. Yossi Klein Halevi, “senior fellow at the Shalom Hartman Institute in Jerusalem,” writing in today’s Nov. 19 edition of the Wall Street Journal (p. A13), states: “Nothing Israel does or doesn’t do is responsible for provoking young Palestinians to hack to death Jews in prayer."

It is an article of Talmudic faith in these cases of violent interaction with non-Judaic, oppressed populations, that Judaic persons are the blameless targets of the blind hatred of irredeemably evil goyim

This formulaic belief is imparted to Orthodox Judaics from their youth: they are of Jacob and all of their enemies are hate-filled scions of Esau — “It is a given law: it is known that Esau hates Jacob” ("Halacha hi beyoduah she’Eisav soneh l’Yaakov).

2100 Palestinians victims from the summer of 2014 rendered invisible:
“Conflict in Holy Land: The Israeli-Palestinian Struggle...in Recent Months”
— Wall Street Journal, Nov. 19, 2014, p. A8

Hence, as Mr. Halevi insinuated, the Palestinian “Esau" hates without foundation and for no reason, other than the fact that he is constitutionally unable to stop hating "Jews.” Therefore, no crime the Israelis commit against the "Esau-Palestinians," such as the enormous slaughter this summer (now all but forgotten — cf. the graphic above, titled “Conflict in the Holy Land” on p. A8 of today’s Wall Street Journal,) can be part of the victim equation. 

The 2100 dead Palestinian “Esaus" are not victims worth remembering, simply because their lives are worth next to nothing.  Is this an “anti-semitic canard”? If so, was it this writer that made those 2100 dead disappear from almost all news reports that wrote of the motives that led up to the synagogue attack? 

If the 2100 were truly regarded by the controlled media as human beings, then their recent deaths would be included, as part of the in-context background reporting on what contributed to the attack on the rabbis on Nov. 18. Norms of journalism in the US are suspended however, when the dogma of Judaism requires it. What is required is that the lives of the four dead “Jacob-rabbis” be shown to be of infinitely more value and significance, than the lives of the now largely invisible 2100 dead Esaus. 

Not that Americans are not outraged when certain religions engage in superior/inferior dichotomies. The Cryptocracy has given permission to the media and the churches to fill the airwaves and the pulpits with intensive discussion and study of the low status of non-Muslims — the so-called “Dhimmi.” Churches both conservative Protestant and traditional Catholic, have expressed outrage at the inferior status allegedly assigned to them by Islam.

Yet every one of the goyim, from the wretchedly dehumanized Palestinians, to the testosterone-fueled, super-patriot American “friends of Israel,” are all Esau in the eyes of Orthodox Judaism. This is not a cause for concern or alarm however, for either the Church, “our” media, or most Americans. There is instead an incredibly dopey faith in the benevolence of the religion that arose on the premise that the Son of God deserved to be killed. The rot that infects our nation is deeper than we can imagine.

The Heart of the World Bleeds for the Master Race

The Heart of the World Bleeds for the Master Race

By Michael Hoffman
November 18, 2014

Today the heart of the world bleeds; 
Indeed, it wears its heart on its sleeve,
It seems that four rabbis could not flee
The bullets of Palestinian terrorists you see,
Pogrom! Holocaust! Headlines! Weeping!

Twenty years ago in Hebron it had not at all been so,
A settler from Brooklyn, Goldstein by name
With his machine gun in a mosque blasted to and fro,
Butchering 40 Palestinians, he earned his fame,
He wore a yellow star, victimhood was his claim. 

The media slashed the death toll to 29
And mourned the dead for a few seconds,
Then turned toward their perpetual shrine: Auschwitz crime.
Four dead rabbis, Jerusalem synagogue, November 2014,
Forty dead Palestinians, Hebron mosque, February 1994.

No equivalence between the two, decrees the media whore,
Jews are Jews, and Arabs, well, who wouldn’t shoot a goy?
FOX News O’Reilly and the Murdoch gang
Speak of Israeli rights to avenge: that’s their supremacist ploy,
They’re amnesiacs when it comes to rights of retribution by the Arab boy,

East Jerusalem auctioned by “holy” real estate dealers,
Goldstein’s heirs stripping Arab land to the bone
The never-factored crimes of the Talmudic stealers,
Their thefts modulated to the lowest possible tone,
As Palestinians are shot, jailed, robbed and reduced to stone;

When they resist, the western world starts screamin’,
Popes and Presidents cry crocodile tears,
How dare Arabs obstruct faux Israel’s dreamin’?
There’s no real concern for Palestinians’ fears
Of being killed at will and without a trace, while
The heart of the world bleeds for the Master Race.

Fundamental to righteous government is the establishment of justice

The jurist Howard B. Rand has perhaps written between twenty and thirty volumes.  From a brief essay he wrote some years back called From the Cradle to the Grave, we should take note of his opinion on what the Preamble actually means to us as a basis for our system of laws. 

 “We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this constitution for the United States of America.”  

Rand lists the following five mandates that must be weighed with every action initiated by government for that action to be in compliance with the Constitution:

“1) Establish justice.
2)  Insure domestic tranquility.
3)   Provide for the common defense.
4)   Promote the general welfare.
5)   Secure the blessings of liberty.

“Let us examine this list carefully, for the solution of human problems does not lie in changing the original purpose for which governments came into being, a purpose sanctioned by God, nor in changing or discounting the reasons for the writing of the Constitution of the United States, but in a restoration of the administration of laws that already exist, the keeping of which will assure the blessings of all these five points and more also – even freedom from want.  We challenge those who propose to set up a form of government that will make everyone conscious of government in his business, domestic and private life and that, instead of thus attaining their desired end (that is, tranquility and peace), will but establish inequalities, injustice, tyranny and oppression” (end quote).

“Fundamental to righteous government is the establishment of justice.”

This justice will never be accomplished with an unrighteous monetary system in operation as we now have.  It has been revealed in the Pentateuch, the Psalms, Ezekiel, the Lord Jesus Himself and one thousand five hundred years of Church history that the charging of interest on loans of money is not allowable. Michael Hoffman did not miss any of the Biblical and Church history interdictions against usury in his Usury in Christendom.  

During the past three hundred and twenty years, many different historical narratives show us clearly that a usurious monetary system is a bane upon civilization.  Money and credit created out of nothing that is lent at interest is indeed a tool for economic oppression. Without attending to this severe problem of the outlawing of usury first (as Mr. Rand put it), none of the objectives named in the Preamble will ever be attainable, because the political class has evolved into a swarm of swindlers and shavers just like the bankers that Jefferson so named.

Most reformers today though, have not yet embraced the only vision that will overturn the beast of usury capitalism.  They write about reform, but only a reform that has already been tried during Colonial America by followers of Ben Franklin’s philosophy  that moderate usury is not harmful.  And still today, almost no one argues that bankers be stripped of their authority to create money, as Thomas Jefferson advocated.  Although some of the reform-peddlers are very professional at articulating their cases, all will fall short of bringing prosperity to the people. St. Paul wrote twice in his epistles, “A little leaven, leavens the whole lump.”  

As long as everyone can charge interest on loans of money, that interest will show up in prices. Jefferson explained this very carefully with his observations on the price of a bushel of wheat. Yet he missed the fact that the interest charged by the Bank of the United States on the "bills of credit" it issued as loans to the people, would also be figured into the price of a bushel of wheat.
