In a delicious irony, the Jewish Communist historian Howard Zinn spent the first part of his classic, Peoples' History of the United States excoriating the goyim for Christopher Columbus' atrocities.

As the Dearborn Independent explained in 1920, the rapacity of Western imperialism largely can be attributed to Jewish finance in the guise of national interest."Spain, Venice, Germany or Great Britain received the blame or suspicion of the world for what the Jewish financiers have done. It is a most important consideration that most of the national animosities that exist today arose out of resentment against what Jewish money power did under the camouflage of national names."
