The “Blood Libel” (The Damascus Affair)

by Arnold Leese – (excerpt from Jewish Ritual Murder) Edited by henrymakow.com May 3, 2012

The Damascus Case, now almost completely forgotten by Democracy, convulsed Europe for a considerable time owing to the agitation induced by the Jewish Money Power which left no stone unturned to misrepresent and vilify the individuals responsible for bringing the Jews to justice.
Achille Laurent, a Member of the Société Orientale, brought together the full details of the trial of the culprits as reported in Arab newspapers at the time, and he published the whole facts of the case in Relation historique des Affaires de Syrie, 1840-1842 (Historic Account of Syrian Affairs, 1840- 1842), which was produced in France as a Yellow Book in two volumes, in 1846.
The Jewish Festival of Purim fell on 15th February, 1840. Father Thomas, a Catholic monk disappeared in Damascus on 5th February. His servant went to look for him and disappeared also.
The French Consul, Comte Ratti-Menton, began to make inquiries, and got the Sherif Pasha to investigate. After a while, seven Jews were arrested. They confessed, some after receiving chastisement with the bastinado, to having murdered Father Thomas for the sake of his blood. Four of them were promised pardon if they would speak the truth; these were Mousa Abou-el-Afieh, who became a Mahomedan, explaining that that was necessary before he could confess about the crimes of other Jews; Aslan Farkhi; Suliman, a barber; and Mourad el Fathal. They confessed very fully. Sixteen Jews were involved, and all were arrested.
Several of the Jews, including Mourad el Fathal, Mousa Abou-el-Afieh, Isaac Arari and Aaron Arari, described how the blood was required and collected from the cut throat of the victim to send to a Rabbi for use in preparing ceremonial bread (pains azymes).
The Grand Rabbi was brought before the Court of Investigation; his name was Yakoub el Entabi. He was required to listen carefully to the examination of Mousa Abou-el-Afieh, and to confirm or deny each statement made by Mousa. In this way, the Rabbi admitted that blood was required for the ceremonial bread. He also confessed to having received Father Thomas’s blood.
According to the Turkish custom, the bastinado was freely applied to make the Jews speak. The Jewish Money Power has endeavored to make the world believe that it was only the torture which enforced confession from innocent men.
Unfortunately for the Jewish Money Power, one of the questions asked was about the place where the remains of Father Thomas had been disposed of; and the remains were found where the prisoners said they were — that is, in a covered conduit. These remains were identified by European doctors as being those of Father Thomas.
Further, the wretches confessed to serving Father Thomas’s servant in the same way, i.e., cutting his throat, collecting his blood, and disposing of the remains, this time in a latrine.
No amount of bastinado or torture could wring from an innocent man information as to the whereabouts of the remains of the victim of a murder.
We spare the reader the sickening details of the crime according to the confessions and admissions of the depraved Jewish murderers; long extracts from the trial’s proceedings can be obtained in the following French book: Le Crime Rituel chez les Juifs, by A. Monniot, prefaced by the celebrated Edouard Drumont, 1914, from P. Tequi, 82 Rue Bonaparte, Paris, price 10 francs. This book shows that the confessions made by the culprits agreed in every detail, and that the questions they had to answer were not “leading questions”.
Fourteen Jews were found guilty, and ten were condemned to death, two having died.
Our business is not to horrify; it is to expose the methods of Jewish intrigue and corruption which were used to conceal the guilt of the culprits in fear of the natural reaction of the Gentile to the facts if they became generally known.
