[wrong] Words attributed to Theodor Herzl “Anti-Semitism … will not harm the Jews” — 1900

Apocryphal or wrong quotation or doubtful.

Author :

Indeed anti-Semitism, a powerful and deep-rooted strength of mass-sub-consciousness will not harm the Jews. I find it helps build the Jewish character - group edification of the masses — an education good for bringing about its assimilation. The assimilation is achieved only through troubles. The Jews will adapt." (...) "an excellent idea enters my mind, to attract outright anti-Semites, and make them destroyers of Jewish wealth.
