Kunstformen der Natur (1904) by Ernst Haeckel

"Hath not a Jew eyes?" is a famous line from William Shakespeare's play The Merchant of Venice (Act III, scene I). It is against antisemitism.

Hath not a Jew eyes? Hath not a Jew hands, organs
dimensions, senses, affections, passions; fed with
the same food, hurt with the same weapons, subject
to the same diseases, heal'd by the same means,
warm'd and cool'd by the same winter and summer
as a Christian is? If you prick us, do we not bleed?
If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us,
do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?
