continued Rabbi Dr. Manfred Reifer<quoted text>
My gawd are you a snore.
We made revolutions, and ran as eternal God Seekers, ahead of the masses of the people. We gave to the international proletariat a second Bible, one that was adequate to the times, and we roused the passions of the third estate. The Jew Marx from Germany, declared war on capitalism and LaSalle organised the masses of the people of Germany itself. The Jew Eduard Bernstein popularised ideology, karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg called the Spartacist movement to life. The Jew Kurt Eisner created the Bavarian Soviet Republic and was her first, and last , president. And against that the German nation rose up, rebelled. She wanted to forge her own destiny, determine the future of her own children-and she should not have been blamed for .
What we projected to first of all was the world citizenship, the cosmopolitanism, which had Jews as its front fighters. These uprooted persons imagined they possessed the power to transplant the ideas of Isaiah into the alleys of Germania, and to storm Valhalla with Amos. At times they succeeded in that, but they bury themselves and the Jewish people under the ruins of a world that has collapsed.(...)
Did not thousands of Jews lose their lives because Bela Kun, a Jew, erected a Soviet Republic on the soil of Stephan the Holy? The Hungarian Jews paid dearly for their prophetdom..(...)
Only the Jews would hear nothing about home and fell as ostensible prophets on the field of liberty. Karl Liebknecht, Rosa Luxemburg Kurt Eisner, Gustav Landauer: "No Kaddish will be spoken, no mass read..."
They, and in the same measure, the children of liberalism, all those poets, authors, artists, journalists, prepared the present time, nourished Jewish hatred, furnished the ground, the material for the era of National Socialism. They all surely desired the best, but attained the opposite. They were cursed with blindness, they saw not the approach of catastrophe, they heard not the footfall of time, the heavy footfalls of time, the heavy footfalls of the Nemesis of History.

Reifer thoughts were valid then and even more valid now. At the time it was regional , now it is global and one can hear as Reifer put it so well,the HEAVY FOOTFALLS OF TIME.
