The Jews will not hesitate to plunge the whole of Christendom into wars and chaos that the earth should become their inheritance. It does not dare to offend the nations by blood spilling, so it is slowly, but surely grinding out the lives of 6,, Jews.
It was our supreme revenge on Christianity. The German leaders knew nothing, and would not take warning, that is why they lost! The physical war was easily won by England, but it will be followed by a spiritual war between East and West Germany must fulfill her mission, otherwise the European civilization will be ruined. From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky Russia , Bela Kun Hungary , Rosa Luxembourg Germany , and Emma Goldman United States , this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian Revolution, by these international and for the most part atheistical Jews, it is certainly a very great one; it probably outweighs all others.
With the notable exception of Lenin, the majority of the leading figures are Jews. Moreover, the principal inspiration and driving power comes from the Jewish leaders Needless to say, the most intense passions of revenge have been excited in the breasts of the Russian people The fact that in many cases Jewish interests and Jewish places of worship are excepted by the Bolsheviks from their universal hostility has tended more and more to associate the Jewish race in Russia with the villainies, which are now being perpetrated.
Winston Churchill, Sunday Illustrated Herald, London, England, February 8, "The German revolution is the achievement of the Jews; the Liberal Democratic parties have a great number of Jews as their leaders, and the Jews play a predominant role in the high government offices. Therefore it might easily be said that all the newly-rich and war- profiteer, is an ancient of a thousand years The immense majority of the influentials in Austrian Socialism were and are still Jews That is what I oppose - a power that has no country and that can order the young men of all countries out to death.
Fourteen million Jews stand together as one man, to declare war against Germany. The Jewish wholesaler will forsake his firm, the banker his stock exchange, the merchant his commerce and the pauper his pitiful shed in order to join together in a holy war against Hitler's people.
Jabotinsky insisted that all energies be expended to force the Congress to join the boycott movement. Nothing less than a 'merciless fight' would be acceptable, cried Jabotinsky. We [Jews] must destroy, destroy, destroy them, not only with the boycott, but politically, supporting all existing forces against them to isolate Germany from the civilized world It is not sufficient that you should buy no goods made in Germany. You must refuse to deal with any merchant or shopkeeper who sells any German-made goods or who patronises German ships or shipping There are reasons for the assumption that our share in this fight is of general importance.
We shall start a spiritual and material war of the whole world against Germany. Germany is striving to become once again a great nation, and to recover her lost territories as well as her colonies. But our Jewish interests call for the complete destruction of Germany The Jews owned the largest and most important Berlin newspapers, and made great inroads on the educational system. The goal of Judaism of today is: We demand a complete blockade of trade, the importation of raw materials stopped, and retaliation towards every German, woman and child.
A will be formed to bring the German and Italian economic systems to their knees. Israel has been attacked. Let us, therefore, defend Israel! Against the awakened Germany, we put an awakened Israel.
And the world will defend us. November "The millions of Jews who live in America, England and France, North and South Africa, and, not to forget those in Palestine, are determined to bring the war of annihilation against Germany to its final end. We wish to do so in a way entirely consonant with the general scheme of British action, and therefore would place ourselves, in matters big and small, under the co-ordinating direction of His Majesty's Government.
The Jewish Agency is ready to enter into immediate arrangements for utilizing Jewish manpower, technical ability, resources, etc. Few papers will risk any attack on the Jews, however well-founded, for fear of appearing even distantly anti-Semitic.
Twenty-five percent of the inhabitants of New York are Jews. During the Great War we bought off this huge American Jewish public by the promise of the Jewish National Home in Palestine, held by Ludendorff to be the master stroke of Allied propaganda as it enabled us not only to appeal to Jews in America but to Jews in Germany as well.
Stronger than all fronts together is our front, that of Jewry. We are not only giving this war our financial support on which the entire war production is based. We are not only providing our full propaganda power which is the moral energy that keeps this war going. The guarantee of victory is predominantly based on weakening the enemy forces, on destroying them in their own country, within the resistance. And we are the Trojan Horses in the enemy's fortress.
Thousands of Jews living in Europe constitute the principal factor in the destruction of our enemy. There, our front is a fact and the most valuable aid for victory. The Soviet State Publishing House is preparing the publication of another "Black Book," a documentary record of the German massacre of approximately six million European Jews. According to the Soviet editors, the Germans killed between five and six million Russian, Polish and Western European Jews, and an additional half million are being murdered in Hungary now.
The war time Premier Winston Churchill said he thought the problem of a National Jewish Home in Palestine was too big to be handled by one single nation alone. I said at once, "The Unnecessary War. And Germany gave them refuge. And they were treated very nicely. And here they sold Germany down the river for no reason at all other than they wanted Palestine as a so-called "Jewish commonwealth. There was no sentiment against those people merely on account of their religious belief.
It was all political. It was anything but religious I also review documents and recordings of neuropsychological and psychiatric assessments conducted by other clinicians to provide feedback on scoring and administration. I found in MedAvante-ProPhase a great place to use my behavioral health experience in a clinical trials setting, as well as a perfect fit for my years of face-to-face counseling, neuropsychological assessments, and phone work at an employee assistance program provider.
I like the excellent training, as well as the opportunity to work with a dedicated group of professionals. I have worked a number of places in my career before MedAvante-ProPhase but I never met a more caring and dedicated group of employees as I have here.
While I work in the office, I feel just as connected to my peers who work remotely. The learning at MedAvante-ProPhase for me started on day one, and has never stopped. As the company grows, so does my ability to gain further skills as a clinician and professional in different research areas. I administer the adjudication process for large global studies by tracking cases, contacting sites for needed information, and assembling and storing the required documentation.
I come from the medical field, having graduated as a Medical Doctor in Dominican Republic. I really love the flexibility that makes my work very convenient for me and my family. I also like the way our multicultural team all treats each other with respect and I enjoy working with colleagues from around the world.
In our department we are very diverse in culture, beliefs and opinions, but there is something common in all of us and that is the respect and the compassion we all have. My colleagues really care about each other and are willing to help and support. Working here has helped me take personal responsibility for learning and development, and increased my understanding that there is a lot more to do in the pharma world. I interact with people from all over the world in my job, exchanging information, optimizing various processes, and, most importantly, providing high quality technical support and customer service to our clinical trial sites.
The nature of our work is such that I am constantly learning new things, and I must steadily exercise and develop my skills. When I first came across the MedAvante-ProPhase job opening, I knew the skills I had acquired during my career up to that point would make me a strong candidate.
On the other hand, medical research was a completely new field for me. Therefore, the job was both a good fit and a big challenge for me. I had to apply. Every day is interesting and challenging, it might be a bit hard, but it is never boring. I love being trusted to oversee and carry out projects with my co-workers.
It makes me feel part of a team and boosts my confidence. My colleagues are hardworking, bright and talented people. We work as a team. Each one of us tries our best to produce a collective result that is optimal for our company and for our clients.
My co-workers have my back, as I have theirs. Therefore, a strong bond has developed between us. I have acquired more skills in four years at MedAvante-ProPhase than in my entire previous career. My problem solving skills have improved and I have gained experience in productively interacting with people of very different professional or cultural backgrounds.
I have daily contact with clinical trial sites and sponsors of studies around the world, attending teleconferences with each of the study teams and training other clinicians both internally and at sites.
I also track statistical data on my studies and resolve discrepancies and other clinical queries. Everyone here has been incredibly supportive and collaborative. I like having the opportunity to work with so many different people in so many different countries, not only our staff but also training people working on trials supported by our technology and services.
I really appreciate the opportunity to travel, collaborating with and presenting to scientific leaders. My colleagues are helpful and hardworking, and also very supportive. We truly have a team mentality and we all work to assist one another and elevate each other in any way possible. They are all very knowledgeable and experienced and are able to guide sites and sponsors when needed.
My job has allowed me to work with scientific experts and learn about new indications and scales. I have also learned much about study design and how to work within the different agencies and sites internationally.
I am a senior project manager in Asia Pacific region, which means that I mainly take care of day-to-day project status and working very closely with the study sites. I am responsible for communicating with global study sponsors and an important part or my role is to confirm that our procedures match local culture.
The freedom of working style and an opportunity to help make the MedAvante-ProPhase reputation as a good vendor provider between the Japan sites and sponsors, an achievement that took me and our team many years and lot of time to achieve. We are a dream team. My colleagues like to help and support each other like a family and they are a part of my soul in my job.
I am responsible for global infrastructure, support, and security so my work can be very challenging but also very rewarding. Our goal is to support every customer — internal or external — with a smile while making infrastructure as seamless as possible. The passion and drive that MedAvante-ProPhase has as a company is what drove me to join. During my interview I was really impressed with how perfectly the company aligned with what I was looking for.
I love technology, and I believe we have the opportunity to be on the cutting edge and continue investing in our future. We are a technology company that is really focused on making this world a better place by dramatically improving clinical trials.
We are a highly diverse company with a mixture of many cultures. I really like learning about people and their passion, and I feel lucky to work with some really great people who are passionate about what they do and driven to get results. I would say that this opportunity has given me the ability to work with many large pharma companies, giving me a really great perspective of how much of a difference our products can make to clinical trials.
The main theme in my scientific career has been memory research and the enhancement effects of neurotrophic drugs like neuropeptides in patients with memory disturbances, and dementia. Since retiring from my university position as head of the Clinical Neuropsychology department, I have been working as a MedAvante-ProPhase trainer and clinician.
I decided to accept the invitation to work for MedAvante-ProPhase because I knew they share my belief that the lack of solid methodology, structured assessments and knowledge about statistical analyses has often biased the outcome of psychiatric and cognitive studies. The company is focused on solid methodology, standardized training and calibration of clinicians and trainers.
I value the opportunity to pass on my experience to people from different background and cultures. Professional, enthusiastic, hardworking people. I have been inspired by the opportunity to work with people from different background and cultures. My day consists of problem solving, revamping processes and motivating a team of hardworking individuals. My goal each day is to leave the office knowing that I accomplished something within my department or added a thought that will inspire innovation.
