|“||So far as Ireland is concerned, she sees the Jews swarming in while Her children are going out. That hideous Anglo-Jewish mob, wild, savage filthy forms from the Yiddish ghetto of Whitechapel.||”|
|“||No thoughtful Irishman or Irishwoman can view without apprehension the continuous influx of Jews into Ireland. Strange people alien to us in thought, alien to us in sympathy who come to live among us but never become one of us.||”|
