Re: “Focus on Rothschild wealth has whiff of anti-Semitism”, Have Your Say, June 27.
In reply to Alf Haupt’s misconceived letter regarding the Rothschild clan, two quotes should help set the record straight and erase his rather insidious accusation of anti-Semitism – the classic exclamation made whenever the slightest critique is expressed regarding the Rothschilds.
The first comes from Mayer Amschel Rothschild:
“Let me issue and control a nation’s money and I care not who writes the laws.”
The second is from Gutle Schnaper Rothschild (mother of five sons residing in London, Paris, Frankfurt, Vienna and Naples respectively):
“If my sons did not want wars, there would be none.”
