Jews have always fought bravely! WAS Re: Jews dont fight in US Army

anti-Semitic lies:


Jews not only fought bravely, but they also fought far out of
proportion to the smallness of our bulk. As taken from SEYMOUR "SY"
BRODY's American Jews serve in WW II: "During WW II, Jews comprised a
measly 3.3% of the American population, yet they managed to comprise
4.23% of the armed forces in the war, and 60% of all Jewish physicians
under age 45 were in the military. 550,000 American-Jews served in WW
II, earned 2 Congressional Medals of Honor, 157 Distinguished Service
Medals & Crosses, 1,600 Silver Stars, & 50,242 other decorations,
citations & awards." The putzhead also forgets that Jews (2% of the
American population - wealthiest ethnic group in the US) have
historically pursued careers in medicine, science, law, business,
media, education, etc. Obviously, the military numbers will never be to
the same disproportionate degree as the forenamed. Most Vietnam & WW II
veterans barely had HS diplomas. Regardless, the numbers speak for
themselves!! -D, NYC "The first graduating class at West Point
consisted of two students - one was Jewish" - SIMON M. LEVY.."Hebraic
mortar cemented the foundations of American democracy" - WILLIAM LECKY,
Irish Historian.."When your ancestors were herding swine upon the
Plains of Scandinavia, mine were following the Maccabee to victory" -
JUDAH P. BENJAMIN (sweet Jew, brains of the confederacy, responding to
a senator who called him "That Jew from Louisiana," held four cabinet
positions: Attorney General, February 25 to September 17, 1861;
Secretary of War, September 17, 1861, to March 18, 1862; acting
Secretary of War, March 18 to 23, 1862; Secretary of State, March 18,
1862).."This legendary American-Jewish patriot (financed the American
Revolution) & NewYork financier (The Bank of New York in 1784), also
appears on a 10-cent US postage stamp" - HAYM SALOMON.."When I
published the above article in Harper's Monthly (1898), I was ignorant
- like the rest of the Christian world - of the fact that the Jew had a
record as a soldier. I have since seen the official statistics, and I
find that he furnished soldiers and high officers to the Revolution,
the War of 1812, and the Mexican War. In both the North and South by
ten percent of his numerical strength - the same percentage that was
furnished by the Christian population of the two sections. This large
fact means more than it seems to mean, for it means that the Jew's
patriotism was not merely level with the Christians, but overpassed it.
When the Christian volunteer arrived in camp, he got a welcome and
applause, but as a rule, the Jew got a snub. His company was not
desired, and he was made to feel it. That he nevertheless conquered his
wounded pride and sacrificed both that and his blood for his flag
raises the average and quality of his patriotism above the Christian's.
His record for capacity, for fidelity, and for gallant soldiership in
the field is as good as anyone's. This is true for the Jewish private's
soldiers and the Jewish generals alike. Major General O.O. Howard
speaks of one of his Jewish staff officers as being, "of the bravest
and best, " of another - killed at Chancellorsville - as being "a true
friend and a brave officer." He highly praises two of his Jewish
brigadier generals; finally, he uses these strong words:
"Intrinsically, there are no more patriotic men to be found in the
country than those who claim to be of Hebrew descent, and who served
with me in parallel commands or more directly under my instructions."
Fourteen Jewish Confederate and Union families contributed, between
them, fifty-one soldiers to the war - among these, a father and three
sons; another, a father and four sons. In the above article, I was not
able to endorse the common reproach that the Jew is willing to feed
upon a country but not to fight for it, because I did not know whether
it was true or false. I supposed it to be true, but it is not allowable
to endorse wandering maxims upon supposition - except when one is
trying to make out a case. This slur upon the Jew cannot hold up its
head in presence of the figures of the War Department. It has done its
work, and done it long and faithfully, and with high approval: it ought
to be pensioned off now, and retired from active service." - MARK
TWAIN.."In one room, where there were piled up twenty of thirty naked
men, killed by starvation, {General} George Patton would not even
enter. He said that he would get sick if he did so. I made the visit
deliberately, in order to be in a position to give firtshand evidence
of these things, if ever in the future there developed a tendency to
charge these allegations merely to "propaganda." - DWIGHT D. EISENHOWER
(after visiting the Nazi concentration camp at Ohrdruf, Germany. Quoted
in Harry James Cargo's Shadows of Auschwitz).."Here is a great body of
our Jewish citizens from whom have sprung men of genius in every walk
of our varied life; men who have conceived of its ideals with singular
clearness; and led enterprises with sprit & sagacity...They are not
Jews in America, they are American citizens" - WOODROW WILSON (28th US
President, 1913-1921).."How is it possible this old fellow (Voltaire)
should represent the Hebrews in such a contemptible light? They are the
most glorious nation that ever inhabited this earth. The Romans and
their empire were but a bauble in comparison to the Jews. They have
given religion in three quarters of the globe and have influenced the
affairs of mankind more, and happily than any other nation, ancient or
modern" - JOHN ADAMS, 2nd US President (letter from retired President,
dated Dec 31, 1808 to his cultured friend, Judge Francis Adrian Van der
Kemp in which he attacks Voltaire's derogatory attitude toward the
Bible and its Jewish people, from Great Jewish Quotations: By Jews &

one, there would be no way to deny that Judaism is the most important
intellectual development in human history" - DAVID GELERTNER, Yale
University Professor.."Five Jewish men influenced the history of
Western civilization: Moses said the law is everything. Jesus said love
is everything. Marx said capital is everything. Freud said sex is
everything. Einstein said everything is relative" eh.."Western
civilization is undeniably a 'Jewified' civilization, however offensive
the word may be to our ears because of the ugly use made of it by
anti-Semites - anti-Semites believed that Jews were everywhere, and in
a sense they were almost everywhere that counted in modern society" -
ALBERT LINDEMANN in Esau's Tears: Modern anti-Semitism and the Rise of
the Jews.."One of the great mysteries that has always puzzled me is how
Jews, who account for such a tiny fraction of the world's population,
have been able to achieve so much and excel in so many different fields
- science, music, medicine, literature, arts, business and more. If you
listed the most influential people of the last hundred years, three at
the top of the list would be Einstein,
Freud and Marx; all were Jews. Many more belong on the list, yet Jews
comprise at most less than 3 percent of the United States population.
They are an amazing people. Imagine the persecution they endured over
the centuries: pogroms, temple burnings, Cossack raids, uprootings of
families, their dispersal to the winds and the Holocaust. After the
Diaspora, they could not own land or worship in much of the world; they
were prohibited from voting and were told where to live. Yet their
children survived and Jews became by far the most accomplished people
per capita that the world has ever produced." - MARLON BRANDO (Songs My

Sad thing is that so few serve now.  Given that Orthodox Jews know at least 
three languages (Hebrew, Aramaic and whatever the language of the country they 
are in), we need them.

Jews used to be tough.  Now we have too many Woody Allen look a likes.  What we 
need are more Jewish warriors.  But then we need to tough up most American kids. 
Recent medical articles peg US population with at least 66% being over weight or 
obese.  Over one third of all high school kids will not graduate.  Less than 5% 
of the kids can even meet military standards.  Plus too many kids have been 
babied all their lives, too immature and nothing for the military to work with. 
No farm kids in any great numbers like we used to have.

Not true.
Per capita Jews make up a large part of the combined services.
Also an inordinate number of Jews are service doctors, lawyers and 
strategists.
Good friend of mine just retired from SAC after 51 years of service.

How many doctors, lawyers, and strategists (Israeli spies) serve on the
front lines?
