Prabhupada said, “Therefore Hitler killed these Jews. They were financing against Germany. Otherwise he had no enmity with the Jews.” – Conversation during massage, 23 January 1977, Bhuvanesvara
Prabhupada: That is politics. Once you become strong; once I become… That is struggle. It will go on. You cannot stop.
Ramesvara: It’s also commonly known that in the West the banks supplied money to Lenin to fight his revolution. They have no discrimination. If it seems like it is a good chance for making interest…
Prabhupada: Therefore Hitler killed these Jews. They were financing against Germany. Otherwise he had no enmity with the Jews.
Hari-sauri: Yes. They were controlling the economy. That was his one thing.
Prabhupada: And they were supplying. They want interest money—”Never mind against our country.” Therefore Hitler decided, “Kill all the Jews.”
Ramesvara: These banks in the West, they supported Lenin. They made it possible to finance his revolution.
Prabhupada: Yes. They have got money. The Jews have got money. They want to invest and get some profit. Their only interest is how to get money, no nationalism, no religion, nothing of the sort. Therefore it is not now; long, long ago… Therefore Shakespeare wrote “Shylock, the Jew.”
Hari-sauri: Yes. “Shylock.”
Prabhupada: “One pound of flesh.” The Jews were criticized long, long ago.
Hari-sauri: They were hated in the Middle Ages.
