This week additional
tapes from the Nixon White House were released and on them – as with
previous tapes – the late American president can be heard making
anti-Semitic and racist statements.
For example, in a conversation with National Security Advisor Henry Kissinger,
on the eve of the 1973 US-Soviet summit, Nixon expressed concern that
US Jews would try to steer the talks to the topic of Russian Jewry. "If
they torpedo this summit — and it might go down for other reasons — I'm
gonna put the blame on them, and I'm going to do it publicly at 9
o'clock at night before 80 million people,” Nixon said.
