General Order #11
The Jews, as a class violating every regulation of trade established by the treasury department and also department orders, are hereby expelled from the Department of Tennessee within twenty-four hours from the receipt of this order.
Post commanders will see to it that all of this class of people be furnished passes and required to leave, and any one returning after such notification will be arrested and held in confinement until an opportunity occurs of sending them out as prisoners, unless furnished with permit from headquarters.
No passes will be given these people to visit headquarters for the purpose of making personal application of trade permits.
Sir Christopher Walcott, Assistant Secretary of War
I have long since believed that in spite of all the vigilance that can be infused into Post Commanders, that the specie regulations of the Treasury Department have been violated, and that mostly by the Jews and other unprincipled traders. So well satisfied of this have I been at this that I instructed the commanding officer at Columbus, Kentucky to refuse all permits to Jews to come south, and frequently have had them expelled from the department of Tennessee. But they come in with their carpet sacks in spite of all that can be done to prevent it. The Jews seem to be a privileged class that can travel anywhere. They will land at any wood yard or landing on the river and make their way across the country. If be at a military post, with a treasury permit to receive cotton and pay for it in treasury notes which the jew will buy up at an agreed rate, paying gold.
There is but one way that I know of to reach this case. That is for the government to buy all the cotton at a fixed rate and send it to Cairo, St. Louis, or some other point to be sold.
Then all traders, they are a curse to the Army, might be expelled.

We know nothing of what the ancient Gentile world (as it is called) was before the time of the Jews, whose practice has been to calumniate and blacken the character of all other nations; and it is from the Jewish accounts that we have learned to call them heathens. But as far as we know to the contrary, they were a just and moral people, and not addicted, like the Jews, to cruelty and revenge, but of whose profession of faith we are unacquainted.
– Thomas Paine
The Jews, I find are very, very selfish. They care not how many Estonians, Latvians, Finns, Poles, Yugoslavs, or Greeks get murdered or mistreated as D[isplaced] P[erson]s as long as the Jews get special treatment. Yet when they have power–physical, financial, or political–neither Hitler nor Stalin has anything on them for cruelty or mistreatment to the underdog.

Stop being Jews and start being human beings.

This is the real enemy, the invader from the East, the Druze, the ruffian, the oriental parasite; in a word: the Jew. – George Bernard Shaw, London Morning Post, December 3, 1925
A careful study of anti-Semitism, prejudice, and accusations might be of great value to many Jews, who do not adequately realize the irritation they inflict.
– H. G. Wells
The Jews still cannot claim any true genius, any truly great man. All their talents and skills resolve around stratagems and low cunning… They are a nation of swindlers.
– Immanuel Kant
Palestine belongs to the Arabs in the same sense that England belongs to the English or France to the French. It is wrong and inhuman to impose the Jews on the Arabs. What is going on in Palestine today cannot be justified by any moral code of conduct. The mandates have no sanction but that of the last war. Surely it would be a crime against humanity to reduce the proud Arabs so that Palestine can be restored to the Jews partly or wholly as their national home.
– Mahatma Gandhi, November 20, 1938
