Alexander whatever his name was Lavien

Was Alexander Hamilton a jew?

I find it highly suspicipus that Alexander Hamilton, author of the central bank plan for America, and main pusher of the bogus consitution, was born in the jewish community of Nevis and had a mother who was married to a jew and had the last name Lavien(Levine) or some variation… Supposedly Alexander’s real father was some Hamilton but I find that extremely coincidental… Here is some good information on Alexander Hamilton being brought up in the jewish community of Nevis and also being refused a christian schooling. It is openly admitted that he went to a private school taught by a jewish head mistress and spoke hebrew… You dont say. Hamilton’s mother could afford to put him not only in a private school but one that had a jewish head mistress? Seems odd consideing she just cheated on her jewish husband… In any case what is not open for debate is Alexander whatever his real name is Lavien, was as pro jewish as they come, spoke hebrew, was educated by a jewess and advocated central banks destroying America…

The sister islands of the Federation of St. Kitts and Nevis lie about 225 miles

southeast of Puerto Rico in the Leeward Islands in the Eastern Caribbean. Nevis, the smaller of the two islands, is elliptically shaped and has a land area of

approximately five by seven miles.

When Christopher Columbus spotted this

eight-mile-long island on his second voyage to the New World in 1493, he

mistook its cloud-shrouded mountains for icy peaks and named it Nuestra

Señora de las Nieves (Our Lady of the Snows).

“St. Kitts and Nevis, like no other islands in the Caribbean, seem to embody a

kind of lush tropical paradise usually associated with the South Pacific. The

atmosphere here is palpably luxuriant, an intoxicating blend of sunlight, sea air

and fantastically abundant vegetation. And yet nature is only a small part of the

wonder of these small, relatively undiscovered destinations. Long ago, St. Kitts

and Nevis were the pearls of the British Caribbean, rich and enormously

important islands that were celebrated throughout Europe. Nevis, the ‘Queen of

the Caribbees,’ possessed unimaginable wealth from its super-productive sugar

industry, while on St. Kitts the impregnable fortress of Brimstone Hill stood as the

Gibraltar of the West Indies.”

Both islands are rich in New World American history. Indeed, some readers may

know that Alexander Hamilton, whose likeness appears on the ten dollar bill and

who was the first Secretary of the Treasury of the United States, was born on

Nevis. However, most readers will probably be surprised to learn that Nevis at

one time contained a vibrant Jewish community with a synagogue and Jewish

cemetery.

“For a period during the late seventeenth century this small town [Charlestown,

Nevis] served as the point of embarkation not only for the products of Nevis, but

for all English goods being shipped out of the Leeward Islands. At the same time

Charlestown also functioned as the slave depot of the Royal African Company in

the Leeward Islands. All of this commercial activity made Charlestown a major

port of the late-seventeenth-century British Caribbean, and it was during this

period that the first Jewish merchants began to arrive on the island.”

“The earliest known reference to a Jewish presence on Nevis is a 1677-1678

muster roll for the island that identifies Isaac Senyor (Senior), Abraham Reysur(Levy Rezio), Solomon Israel, Daniel Mendez, Rachel Mendez, and three

children as ‘Jewes’. It is not certain when these individuals arrived on Nevis, but

Sephardic Jews probably first came to the island as traders from Barbados

sometime after the 1654 emigration from Portuguese Brazil.

“What is certain is that by the late 1670s the Nevis Jewish families recorded on

the muster roll had created a community of permanence, as evidenced by their

desire, and ability, to consecrate a piece of land for a separate burial ground. The oldest surviving grave marker in the cemetery is the stone of Ester Marache. Her stone indicates that she died on February 20 of 1679 in the Hebrew month and year of Adar 5439.

“By the end of the century at least twenty-seven Jewish individuals, representing

approximately seventeen households, were recorded on Nevis. As seventeenthcenturyrecords for Nevis are scarce, the total number of individuals in the community at this time cannot be determined with certainty.”

By today’s standards this number of Jewish households seems small indeed.

“Nonetheless, the total of at least seventeen households is on par with the

Jewish communities of the largest British colonies in the West Indies during this

period. The 1680 census data for Port Royal, Jamaica, indicates twenty Jewish

households, whereas Speightstown, Barbados, had fourteen, and the leading

port of Bridgetown, Barbados, had fifty-four. While the number of Jewish

individuals on Nevis paled in comparison to the total white population of the

island (3,521 individuals in 1678), the number of Jewish households

demonstrates that they were more than a minute Jewish presence.”

By the late seventeenth century this Jewish community was an established

enclave complete with the communal necessities of a cemetery, a synagogue

and a Jewish school.

“It is unclear if the school was in the synagogue or in a separate building.

Curiously enough, we know of the existence of a Jewish school through some of

the biographies of Alexander Hamilton, born in Nevis. Hamilton’s mother, Rachel

Faucett, after her separation from her Danish-Jewish husband John Michal

Lavien, cohabited with a Scotsman, James Hamilton, in Nevis and gave birth to

Alexander. ‘The Anglican Church could not offer full acceptance of the situation…

(and) denied Alexander membership or education in the church school. He was

enrolled in a private school on Nevis taught by a Jewish head mistress and…

soon was fluent in Hebrew and French.’”

“His son later related that ‘rarely as he alluded to his personal history, he

mentioned with a smile his having been taught to repeat the Decalogue in

Hebrew, at the school of a Jewess, when so small that he was placed standing

by her side upon a table’ “Perhaps from this exposure at an impressionable age, Hamilton harbored a lifelong reverence for Jews. In later years, he privately jotted on a sheet of paper that the ‘progress of the Jews…from their earliest history to the present time has been and is entirely out of the ordinary course of human affairs. Is it not then a fair conclusion that the cause also is an extraordinary one – in other words, that it is the effect of some great providential plan?’ Later on, in the heat of a renowned legal case, Hamilton challenged the opposing counsel: ‘Why distrust the evidence of the Jews? Discredit them and you destroy the Christian religion….’”

Nevis’ sugar-based economy and the merchant class that depended upon it

collapsed during the eighteenth century for a variety of political and economic

reasons. The white populace as well as the Jewish community dwindled as a

result of this economic collapse. By the last half of the eighteenth century only

three Jewish households remained. “An 1809 letter refers to a piece of land

‘where the Jews Synagogue was formerly,’ indicating that by that date the central

building of the community was gone.”

The existence of the Nevis Jewish community was virtually unknown to anyone

save the inhabitants of Nevis and the surrounding islands until it was accidentally

rediscovered in 1957 by the American Jewish historian Malcolm Stern. Stern

happened to be on the first cruise ship to ever visit the island when it docked for

a short time at Charlestown, the capital of the island. At the welcoming ceremony

one of the officials mentioned that Nevis was the birthplace of Alexander

Hamilton. Stern recalled that earlier on the voyage he had heard that Hamilton

had received his early education in a synagogue school.

Based on this Stern and his wife approached a Nevisian and asked if he might be shown the Jewish synagogue. They were then shown an almost unidentifiable

ruin and told that this was the synagogue. Later archaeological investigations by

Michelle Terrell have shown that this ruin was not the Nevis synagogue.

The Sterns were also taken to an overgrown Jewish burial ground. “The

cemetery consisted of an open field in which goats grazed amongst the barely

visible gravestones. The Sterns spent the remainder of their time ashore

recording a total of sixteen epitaphs. Upon returning home, Rabbi Stern wrote a

short article about the Nevis Jewish community, its cemetery, and the ruined

synagogue for the American Jewish Archives

8, thereby bringing the forgotten

Sephardic community of Nevis to the attention of scholars of Jewish history.

“In response to Rabbi Stern’s article, a group of philanthropists led by Florence

and Robert Abrahams of Philadelphia set about collecting funds to refurbish

Nevis’ forgotten Jewish burial ground. Their work culminated in the rededication

of the cemetery on February 25, 1971.”

Today this well-maintained cemetery is one of the most popular historic sights on

Nevis.

My comments:

So here we have a very intersting fact about the founder of the Central Bank in America, namely Alexander Hamilton, who appears to have been a jew by the name of Lavien or whatever variant. There are no records to indicate that he wasn’t and his life long obsession with how great jews were and how great central banks were leads me to believe that he was also one of them, as no self respecting non jew can be around jews for any lengthy period of time without absolutely loathing them. Alexander Hamilton’s pro jewish subservience will be better covered in a future series of artciles… However the facts are that he was educated by a jewess, was extremely pro jewish, spoke hebrew and advocated central banks econmicaly destroying America!
