The Theodor Herzl
Puppet Show


CROWD
The true conception of the State
is foreign to the Jew.
There are no Jewish gentlemen,
not even one or two.

There’s never been a Jewish State
and never will there be.
Just like a woman, vain and weak,
the Jew lacks personality.

HERZL
Mamaka-a-a!

CROWD
(Israel can never be)
There is no hope for me or you –
(Israel can never be)
Except in Christianity.

How many years did he begat –
that Jewish dog, that pedigree?
Five thousand since the Exodus
and still no Jew nobility!

HERZL
Mamakám! Mamakám! Darling Papa!

FRAU HERZL
Gottverdammte Kuh!

CROWD
The Jews themselves are anti-Jew.
And does conversion clean the blood?
The Jewish Question won’t be solved
without the help of another flood!

(Israel can never be)
There is no hope for me or you –
(Israel can never be)
Except in Christianity.
Except in Christianity.
Except in...
