EDITED BY DR. ALEXANDER JACOB – The two anti-Masonic texts presented in this edition shed some light on the Jewish origins, structure, ancient lore, symbolism, beliefs, rituals and ambitions of the Free masonic organization at the end of the 19th and early 20th centuries. The first of the texts is taken from French journalist Édouard Drumont’s famous work on the Jews entitled Jewish France, two volumes (1886), while the second is from Romanian scientist and political activist Nicolae Paulescu’s The Hospital, the Koran, the Talmud, the Kahal and Freemasonry (1913). Both authors discuss the contrast between the “Jewish character” of the Masonic ethos and the social doctrines of the Catholic Church. The authors allege a prime goal of Masonry has always been to replace Christianity and, particularly, Catholicism as a political and moral force in the West. And, while the Church has a commitment to charity and social harmony, the authors insist the Freemasons show a complete contempt for those in poverty and a core desire to weaken Christianity across the world. Also included are their observations about the bedrock of Masonic lore, which is based heavily on Old Testament, Middle Eastern myths and legends. This 136-page softcover, $15.
