even hid slaves that had escaped from their owners. 107 years after his death, his
writings were quoted by Martin Luther King in a speech, but not this bit:
Religious emotion, religious will, I think, never went further than with the Jews. But their intellect was sadly pinched in those narrow foreheads. They were cruel also, always cruel. I doubt not they did sometimes kill a Christian baby at the Passover or the anniversary of Haman's famous day (ie Purim. ed.).
The Georgia State Capitol, in Atlanta, Georgia
New York writer Charles P. Sweeny wrote in The Nation in August 1921:
At Watson's door, for instance, can be chiefly laid the responsibility for the orgy of anti-Semitism that culminated in the ghastly lynching of Leo Frank, of whose complete innocence of the murder charged to him there is not the slightest doubt. In his long campaign of journalistic frightfulness against Frank and against all Jews at the time, Watson convinced Southerners by the thousands that the Jewish faith condoned and encouraged atrocious crimes against the children of Christians. As a result of Watson's carnival of falsehood against Frank, which led to Frank's legal, and later to his actual, lynching, the belief became widespread in Georgia that one of the Hebraic rituals is the drawing of the blood of children and the drinking of it by adults.

Statue of Vladimir Dal (1801 - 1872) by
his former home in Luhansk, Ukraine
Dal was a gifted linguist who spoke Hebrew, Yiddish, Latin, English, and several other languages.
An expert in folklore and a lexicographer, he compiled an edited The Explanatory Dictionary of
the Living Great Russian Language, first published in 1863 and containing over 230,000 entries.
In 1841, whilst working for the Russian Ministry of Domestic Affairs, Dal and other scholars were instructed by the Russian Czar to investigate and compile a top secret report on the legend of Jewish ritual murder. In 1844 they produced a 100 page paper entitled: Investigation of the Murder of Christian Babies by Jews and the Use of Their Blood, and only 10 copies were made, for the czar and senior ministers. But in 1914, during international Jewry's continual attempts to destroy Russia, Dal's 1844 paper, then 70 years old, was published in St. Petersburg under the title Notes on Ritual Murders—it does not state the name of the author. Dal's report concludes:
It cannot be emphasized enough: The [ritual murder] mutilating ceremony does not belong to all the Jews in general, but, without any doubt, it is known only among some of them. In particular, it exists only in the sect of Hasidic Jews ... who are the most persistent, fanatical sect; who admit only the Talmud and rabbinical books, and deny, so to speak, anything from the Old Testament. But here, perhaps, is where their big secret is contained, since they do not all know about it; and, at least, not all the Hasidic Jews who do know about it necessary participate in it all the time. Certainly, there are not any doubts, however, that it has occurred since the time Christianity began spreading until the present time. From time to time; among Jews, there are fanatics and cabbalistic wizards who appear with a double purpose: They seek to capture a Gentile baby to torture; and then ise the Gentile baby's blood for mystical-religious and pseudo-magic purposes. Poland and the western provinces of our country served, since the times of Middle Ages, as a shelter for this inveterate and ignorant Jewish society, representing, until the present time, the greatest number of examples of Gentile babies who suffered similar mutilation, especially the Vitebsk province where the Hasidic Jewish sect has spread significantly.
Statues of Fyodor Dostoyevsky (1821 - 1881) in Moscow,
Omsk in Sibera, and Dostoyevsky metro station in Moscow
Fyodor Dostoyevsky author of Crime and Punishment, seems to have often written things that would have
see someone imprisoned 21st Britain, but many have defended him against allegations of anti-Semitism.
In his 1880 novel The Brothers Karamazov, the character, Liza, a 14 year old girl says:
... is it true that at Easter (Easter & Passover is the same word in Russian), Yids steal children and kill them? ... There's a book here in which I read about some trial, and a Yid who took a four-year-old child and cut off the fingers from both his little hands, and then crucified him on the wall, hammered nails into him, and crucified him, and afterwards at the trial he said that the child died quickly, within four hours. That was 'quickly'! He said the child moaned, kept on moaning and he stood admiring it. That's nice!"How disgusting is the acquittal of the Kutaisian Yids. There is no doubt they are guilty.
murdered in the woods near Kutaisi in Georgia. Nine local Jews were tried in March 1879 for her abduction
and slaughter, but the court found them innocent of all charges. Dostoyevsky, on March 28, 1879 wrote
to Olga Novikova, a Russian aristocrat, writer and "anti-Semitie", who often resided in London:
How disgusting is the acquittal of the Kutaisian Yids. There is no doubt they are guilty.
