The Independent Order of B’nai B’rith is the oldest continually-operating Jewish supremacist group in the world. The fraternity was founded on 13 October 1843 by Ashkenazi Jews who first became acquainted through their membership in the Freemasons. However, although freemasonry at least pretended to be about the so-called “international brotherhood of mankind”, where “all are equal”, B’nai B’rith didn’t bother with this facade–its focus was explicitly group identity based, ethnocentric and racially exclusive from the start. No goyim were allowed to join, only “God’s Chosen”. Its openly professed aim was “uniting and elevating the Sons of Abraham.” The organization is engaged in a wide variety of political lobbying, including the promotion of Jewish group interests in social, economic, political and media forums, through its so-called Human Rights and Public Policy. B’nai B’rith is a hawkish advocate of Israeli foreign policy interests. Together with AIPAC, it created in 2002 an initiative called “BBYO 4 Israel” the B’nai B’rith Youth Organization (BBYO). Noted members of the organisation have included the sexual deviant and cultural terrorist Sigmund Freud.
