Excerpt from The Jewish SpectreThe Jewish Spectre is now visible in both hemispheres; it hovers over New York as it long has done over Paris, Vienna, Berlin and London. But, accustomed as we are to the incoming of foreign peoples, it is not the apparition of an exotic race among us that gives my subject its greatest importance. The question would be very simple, and no more puzzling than the interference of other people in the affairs of our modern life, were it not for the hovering vision of Israel that is thrown upon the screen of our religious consciousness. This spectre carries on its front for us, in our childlike and experimental condition of mind, many of the mysteries of the whence and whither of life, and of the terrors of death; and stands for us in such a relation that it seems to many to be religion itself. It seems as though the whole fabric of our theology would fall to the ground without this "Israel" - though we sometimes fancy we could get along without Judah.Most of us seem to think that Israel and Judah are exchangeable if not synonymous terms. They were once quite distinct; and they might be still, were it not for that tendency in our language to blend and weave, in the interest of the romantic and wonderful, unrelated words and images. We divide our modern races into specific nationalities, as we also do the profane races of antiquity; but it is only by the greatest sacrifices that we pull Israel and Judah apart. No one has ever yet written a history of the Jews without at least a preliminary chapter on the Israelites.About the PublisherForgotten Books publishes hundreds of thousands of rare and classic books.
