Rare Book Sheds Light on the Origins of Communist China
Last Updated on June 7, 2021 by Hamad Subani
A few days ago, Prof. Henry Makow linked up a now rare but once popular book published in 1951, which sheds some little-known information on the origins of Communist China (or the China as we know it). An excerpt (Chapter XVIII) can be downloaded here. Unfortunately, the entire book cannot be downloaded online, but you can still buy it.
Here is what the back cover insert has to say:
REV. R. de JAEGHER was born in Belgium in 1905. He studied in England and received his M.A. at the University of Louvain. He lived under the Communists in China from 1937-1943, was in a Japanese concentration camp from 1943-1945, and worked against the Communists in China until 1949. His book, The Enemy Within (Doubleday) has been translated into eight languages. He is coauthor with Dr. Pan of The Red Guards which was published last spring. He was Regent of the Institute of Far Eastern Studies at Seton Hall University from 1950-1953. From 1954-1964, Father de Jaegher worked in South Vietnam, where he founded two high schools with 4,000 students. He established the Free Pacific Association in Saigon, and for many years edited a daily paper and a magazine in Chinese, a magazine in French, and one in English. Father de Jaegher rendered extremely valuable service to the late President Diem from 1954-1963. His command of languages, his long experience with the Communists in China, his knowledge of the people and problems in Vietnam, was so unique that Diem conferred with him daily during his nine years in the presidency. He is director of Public Relations for the Archdiocese of Taipei. He lectures in English, French, and Chinese.
In addition, we find this in the cover insert.
Father Raymond de Jaegher was born in Belgium, educated there and in England, and spent nineteen years s as missionary in China. He came to this country in 1949 and now makes his home in Maryknoll, New York. He lectures extensively on his experiences in the Orient, and during the past winter he returned to Formosa and Hong Kong for a brief visit. Irene Corbally Kuhn, who collaborated with Father de Jaegher on this book, is a well-known magazine writer, war correspondent, radio commentator, and author who spent a great deal of time in China, both before and during World War II. She currently resides in New York City.
I know what you are thinking. They sound like spooks. And they might be, particularly Irene Corbally Kuhn (Cohen). In my book The Secret History of Iran, I found Nestorian Christian “Missionaries” connected to the rise of the Mongols. So “Christian Missionary” has always been a traditional cover for them. Of course, not all Christian Missionaries are spooks, but the spooks get to place themselves among them.
I still read what Spooks of all stripes have to say, because they usually have the details. On rare occasions, Spooks too, can grow a conscience. Lets give de Jaegher the benefit of doubt and assume he was a genuine Christian Missionary. That would explain why he ended up in a prison camp (The other type never get caught).
Here is what the front cover insert has to say:
Belgian Father Raymond de Jaegher first went to China as a missionary in 1930, and from that time until his perilous escape from the country in 1949 he has watched the insidious but systematic spread of Communist domination in the Far East. In THE ENEMY WITHIN he presents a graphic and unforgettable eyewitness report on Red conquest, which might happen similarly in any nation, a creeping terror which unrolled before his eyes “like a Chinese scroll painted by a devil.”The Enemy Within, published by Doubleday 6 Company, Inc. 1951.
First the Communists undermined the traditional Chinese family life, code of morals, and religions, forcing even the peace-loving Buddhists into active underground resistance. They then used the war with Japan to weaken further the National Government, and Father de Jaegher describes one tragic day in the spring of 1940, when the Reds calmly annihilated nearly sixty thousand of their own countrymen, while a Japanese army idled less than fifty miles away. He tells how children were forced to witness beheadings, details the inhuman tortures inflicted upon anti-Communists: freezing, flaying, burial alive, and the “Peiping Express,” wherein the unfortunate victim is dragged to death by a horse beaten into a frenzy.
Father de Jaegher often finds flashes of humor in his experiences, but most of his shrewd and articulate report is grimly serious. And whether relating events during his imprisonment in a Japanese concentration camp, recounting talks with Chiang Kai-shek, or tracing the vain efforts of the United States to bring peace to China, he tells his story ill terms of people, showing vividly the devastating effects of communism on all classes, from peasant to scholar and banker.
Here is what Prof. Henry Makow has to say:
In my book, the World War Deception, I had theorized that the Nationalist Government of China (Chiang Kai-Shek et all) had been installed to facilitate the Communist Party of China. Because a genuine nationalist Government would have never succumbed to them. The atrocious role of Imperial Japan was also no coincidence. Was Imperial Japan also compromised?
There is allusion to this in the Rakovsky document of 1938:
[……..] and the United States financed Japan; speaking precisely, this was done by Jacob Schiff, the head of the bank of Kuhn, Loeb & Co., which is the successor of the House of Rothschild, whence Schiff originated. He had such power that he achieved that States which had colonial possessions in Asia supported the creation of the Japanese Empire which was inclined towards xenophobia [……..].
How would they do this? By infiltrating the Japanese monarchy? A more easier route was propping up the Japanese military machine (The Tojo cabal) and reducing the monarchy to mere figureheads. Following World War II, the Tojo cabal would disappear, but the real, genuine, monarchy would be reduced to agreeing to a tacit Allied occupation of Japan, which continues to this day.
Is there something else to learn here? I would like to point out that the Nationalists, after handing over China to the Communists, retreated into Taiwan, where the same group currently holds sway. They could not surrender Taiwan to the Communists because the Taiwanese people, somewhat free from the ravages of World War II, (and separated from mainland China by history and geography) would never even consider it. Now that Communist China has built a military machine, it is encroaching on Taiwan, and I predict that Taiwanese leadership will betray Taiwan to China, military confrontation or not.
Were it not for these complex arrangements,
they the Phoenicians would have never managed to conquer both Japan and China, in such a short time, and permanently alter their natural destinies. Were similar arrangements also made for the Indian Subcontinent, which was under direct British rule? In my book, the World War Deception, I had theorized that there definitely were. Except that things did not unfold as planned. A religious war was being prepared. A crypto-Jewish person had been selected to lead post-British India, which would be a proto-Communist state disguised as a Hindu state to make it more palatable, which would battle both parts of Pakistan (a fake Muslim state, where compromised leaders had also been propped up). But Gandhi’s popularity drowned that of the compromised leaders popped up in India. Even his assassination would not help them make a comeback. The Nehru family which succeeded him, despite their faults and errors, were still local, sovereign rulers. And Pakistan too, became a rough ride for its Phoenician handlers. Both countries saw genuine, local leaders.
One can only wonder what China could be were it’s people followed (or were allowed to follow) their natural course of history.
There is a strange way in which the earlier theory of the role of Imperial Japan in the creation of Communist China ties in with that of the plans for a Communist India. On the eve of Indian independence, a prominent Indian leader went missing, and has never been found. He had boarded a plane owned and operated by the Japanese military!
