The Jewish Question (abbreviated JQ) was part of a long-running debate in Europe about the civil, legal, national and political status of Jews within Europe from the 18th through 20th centuries. It culminated in Nazi Germany with The Final Solution (German: Endlösung), resulting in the Holocaust. The alt-right has revived the term even though there are some Jews who consider themselves among the alt-right.

JQ is an abbreviation of the term, The "Jewish Question". It refers to the belief in the presence of a dominant, global force behind the world's Banks, Media Corporations, and Governments, which are believed to be mostly controlled by Jewish leaders. The belief posits the idea that Judaism is a religion hell-bent on achieving domination over the "goyim" (non-Jews), through Covet Means (secrecy).
The idea is as follows: Control over Banks yields control over all currency. Control over all currency yields control over all Media Corporations. Control over all Media, yields control over government, and of course, control over all government yields control over all people.
Proponents of the idea usually cite the massive percentage of Jews in positions of power in these industries (often 50% and above), relative to their actual percentage of the population (2-3%)
Believers of the Jewish Question often Cite quotations from the Jewish Holy Books (Talmud), such as:
"Even the Best of the Goyim should be Killed". (Tob shebbe goyyim harog)
On September 16, 1919, Hitler issues his first written comment on the so-called Jewish Question.
In the statement, he defined the Jews as a race and not a religious community, characterized the effect of a Jewish presence as a “race-tuberculosis of the peoples,” and identified the initial goal of a German government to be discriminatory legislation against Jews. The “ultimate goal must definitely be the removal of the Jews altogether.” Hitler's years in Vienna (1908–1913) and his military service were important stages for his development of a comprehensive racist ideology.
