Pg. 232: "The Thules had now conveniently forgotten this however, and Arco-Valley was just one more fading martyred bloom in the garden of ultra-rightist, anti-Semitic, nationalistic remembrance. The volkisch groups, the Thules, the Germanen Orden and three dozen other frenzied groups each claiming that their infinitesimal variations in nuance and emphasis amounted to major planks of doctrinal difference. "; Pg. 244: "Gloder would use anti-Semitism among the workers as a unifying slogan, but not at the expense of wasting the vital resources of Jewish science and banking... Gloder was able to convince prominent Jews that his party's anti-Semitism was public posture and that Jews in Germany had less to fear from him than from the Marxists and other rightist factions. "

"Helena was convinced that all irrational hatreds began there, with an ingrained, instinctive fear of the unknown. It's where racism, where anti-Semitism, comes from.

We learn that when Donnelly's archvillain, Prince Cabano, 'comes to sign his name to a legal document, [he[ signs it as Jacob Isaacs.' And further, that 'the aristocracy of the world is now almost altogether of Hebrew origin.' But the second in command of the revolutionary Brotherhood of Destruction, and the 'brains of the organization,' is a Russian Jew, 'driven out of his synagogue in Russia . . . for some crimes he had committed . . . a man of great ability, power and cunning.'
