You [Jews] have been driven, robbed, and ravished — so have we. You have been persecuted, mistreated, misunderstood — so have we. Why? We were driven from our homes to desolation beyond the boundaries of the United States. You, too, have been driven. Why? What a power we could be in the world if we [Mormons and Jews] were united... the complete accomplishment of our mutual and heaven‑assigned responsibilities involves our becoming united (as the descendants of Joseph) with the descendants of Judah (the Jewish people) in the fulfilment of the promises given by the Lord to Abraham and renewed upon the heads of Isaac and Jacob, that through them and their seed all nations of the earth would be blessed.
