This is a horrible anti-Semitic book! The author and all his descendants should be ashamed of it. I wonder why Google Books thinks this deserves to be distributed at all.

Shocking that this tract appears listed under "History / Jewish; Jews; Religion / Judaism / General" and not "History / Anti-Semitism". This is worth a read, though: if you haven't actually been exposed to this kind of poison before, and think you understand Anti-Semitism, think again. It is so much worse.
