I know thy works, and tribulation, and poverty, (but thou art rich) and I know the blasphemy of them which say they are Jews, and are not, but are the synagogue of Satan.
Behold, I will make them of the synagogue of Satan, which say they are Jews, and are not, but do lie; behold, I will make them to come and worship before thy feet, and to know that I have loved thee.
There is no other explanation for this than the one cited earlier from Moses, namely, that
God has struck them with "madness and blindness and confusion of mind." So we are even at
fault in not avenging all this innocent blood of our Lord and of the Christians which they shed for
three hundred years after the destruction of Jerusalem, and the blood of the children they have
shed since then (which still shines forth from their eyes and their skin). We are at fault in not
slaying them. Rather we allow them to live freely in our midst despite an their murdering, cursing, blaspheming, lying, and defaming; we protect and shield their synagogues, houses, life,
and property In this way we make them lazy and secure and encourage them to fleece us boldly
of our money and goods, as well as to mock and deride us, with a view to finally overcoming us,
killing us all for such a great sin, and robbing us of all our property (as they daily pray and hope).
Now tell me whether they do not have every reason to be the enemies of us accursed Goyim, to
curse us and to strive for our final, complete, and eternal ruin!
