On December 14, Tom Suárez spoke at The House of Lords, London, at the invitation of Baroness Jenny Tonge. Drawing from his recently published book State of Terror, he addressed the centennial of the Balfour Declaration and his views on the way toward ending today’s Israel-Palestine “conflict”. The following are Suárez’s remarks. The book was reviewed here by David Gerald Fincham.

Good evening, thank you so much for taking time out of what I know are your busy schedules to be here now. My thanks to Jenny Tonge for making this meeting possible; and I would like to thank three people without whom the book would not exist: Karl Sabbagh, my publisher; Ghada Karmi, who inspired the book; and my partner, Nancy Elan, who was my constant alter-ego during my research and without whom I surely would have given up.

My work is based principally on declassified source documents in the National Archives in Kew. When I have had to rely on published works, I have trusted established historians who cite first-hand sources. Everything I will say here tonight is based on such source material.

Our topic is of course the so-called “conflict” in Israel-Palestine, a tragedy that has dragged on for so long that it feels static, indeed almost normalised. But unlike other deadly conflicts, this one is wholly in our power to stop—“our” meaning the United States and Europe. It is in our power to stop it, because we are the ones empowering it.

We are now approaching the centennial of the British Original Sin in this tragedy, the Balfour Declaration. The British role in Palestine was a case of ‘hit & run’: The Balfour Declaration, in which the British gave away other people’s land, was the hit; and thirty years later, Resolution 181—Partition—was the run, leaving the Palestinians abandoned in a ditch.

Zionism was of course among the incarnations of racial-nationalism that evolved in the late nineteenth century. Bigots were Zionism’s avid fans—it was the anti-Semites who championed the Zionists. Gertrude Bell, the famous English writer, traveler, archaeologist, and spy, reported, based on her personal experience, that those who supported Zionism did so because it provided a way to get rid of Jews.

The London Standard’s correspondent to the first Zionist Conference in 1897 I think described Zionism perfectly. He reported that

…the degeneration which calls itself Anti-Semitism [bear in mind that ‘anti-Semitism’ was then a very new term] has begotten the degeneration which adorns itself with the name of Zionism.

Indeed, most Jews and Jewish leaders dismissed Zionism as the latest anti-Semitic cult. They had fought for equality, and resented being told that they should now make a new ghetto—and worse yet, to do so on other people’s land. They resented being cast as a separate race of people as Zionism demanded.

They had had quite enough of that from non-Jewish bigots.

For others, the idea of going to a place where one could act out racial superiority was seductive. As the political theorist Eduard Bernstein put it at about the time the Balfour Declaration was being finessed, Zionism is “a kind of intoxication which acts like an epidemic”.

By the time the Balfour Declaration was finalised, thirty-plus years of Zionist settlement had made clear that the Zionists intended to ethnically cleanse the land for a settler state based on racial superiority; and it was the behind-the-scenes demands of the principal Zionist leaders, notably Chaim Weizmann and Baron Rothschild.

First-hand accounts of Zionist settlement in Palestine had already painted a picture of violent racial displacement. I will cite one of the lesser known reports, by Dr. Paul Nathan, a prominent Jewish leader in Berlin, who went to Palestine on behalf of the German Jewish National Relief Association. He was so horrified by what he found that he published a pamphlet in January, 1914, in which he described the Zionist settlers as carrying on

a campaign of terror modelled almost on Russian pogrom models.

A few years later, the Balfour Declaration’s deliberately ambiguous wording was being finalized. Sceptics—and the British Cabinet—were assured that it did not mean a Zionist state. Yet simultaneously, Weizmann was pushing to create that very state immediately. He demanded that his state extend all the way to the Jordan River within three or four years of the Declaration—that is, by 1921—and then expand beyond it.

In their behind-the-scenes meetings, Weizmann and Rothschild treated the ethnic cleansing of non-Jewish Palestinians as indispensable to their plans, and they repeatedly complained to the British that the settlers were not being treated preferentially enough over the Palestinians. And they insisted that the British must lie about the scheme until it is too late for anyone to do anything about it.

In correspondence with Balfour, Weizmann justified his lies by slandering the Palestinians and Jews—that is, the Middle East’s indigenous Jews, who were overwhelmingly opposed to Zionism and whom Weizmann smeared with classic anti-Semitic stereotypes. The Palestinians he dismissed as, in so many words, a lower type of human, and this was among the reasons he and other Zionist leaders used for refusing democracy in Palestine—if the “Arabs” had the vote, he said, it would lower the Jew down to the level of a “native”.

With the establishment of the British Mandate, four decades of peaceful Palestinian resistance had proved futile, and armed Palestinian resistance—which included terrorism—began. Zionist terror became the domain of formal organizations that attacked anyone in the way of its messianic goals—Palestinian, Jew, or British. These terror organizations operated from within the Zionist settlements and were actively empowered and shielded by the settlements and the Jewish Agency, the recognized semi-autonomous government of the Zionist settlements, what would become the Israeli government.

TomSuarezIsrael There was no substantive difference between the acknowledged terror organizations—most famously, the Irgun, and Lehi, the so-called Stern Gang—and the Jewish Agency, and its terror gang, the Hagana. The Agency cooperated, collaborated, and even helped finance the Irgun.

The relationship between the Jewish Agency, and the Irgun and Lehi, was symbiotic. The Irgun in particular would act on behalf of the Hagana so that the Jewish Agency could feign innocence. The Agency would then tell the British that they condemn the terror, while steadfastly refusing any cooperation against it, indeed doing what they could to shield it.

The fascist nature of the Zionist enterprise was apparent both to US and British intelligence. The Jewish Agency tolerated no dissent and sought to dictate the fates of all Jews. Children were radicalised as part of the methodology of all three major organizations, and by extension, the Jewish Agency.

Britain’s wake-up call regarding the Zionists’ indoctrination of children came on the 8th of July, 1938. That day, the Irgun blew up a bus filled with Palestinian villagers. Now, this was not the first time the Irgun had done something of this sort, but this time the British caught the bomber. She was a twelve year old schoolgirl.

Teenagers, both boys and girls, were commonly used to plant bombs in Palestinian markets and conduct other terror attacks. Teachers were threatened or removed if they tried to intervene in the indoctrination of their students, and the students themselves were blocked from advancement if they resisted, even being taught to betray their own parents if those parents tried to instill some moderation. Jews who opposed and tried to warn of the emerging fascism were assassinated, and indeed most victims of Zionist assassinations—that is, targeted, rather than indiscriminate—were Jews.

From the beginning of World War II through to the summer of 1947, there were virtually no Palestinian attacks, even though Zionist terror against Palestinians continued. A British explanation for the Palestinians’ failure to respond in kind was that they understood that the attacks were a trap, intended to elicit a response that the Zionists would frame as an attack against which they would have to ‘defend’ themselves. This was a Zionist tactic noted by the British as early as 1918, and it remains Israel’s default strategy today, most blatantly in Gaza, but also in East Jerusalem and the West Bank.

As late as the fall of 1947, the Jewish Agency was concerned by the Palestinians’ failure to respond to its provocation, but when the end of 1947 came and the Jewish Agency could wait no longer for the civil war it needed, it was simply a matter of ratcheting up the terror.

Throughout the Mandate period, the takeover and ethnic cleansing of Palestine remained Zionism’s unwavering goal. As but one illustration, I will summarize a key meeting of twenty people held in London on the 9th of September, 1941.

“To be treated as most secret” is the red ink heading of the transcript. Present were Weizmann, who had called the meeting, David Ben-Gurion, and other Zionist leaders such as Simon Marks (of Marks & Spencer); and the prominent non-Zionist industrialist, Robert Waley Cohen. Discussing the path to the proposed Jewish State, the conversation ran along the lines of George Orwell’s still-to-be-published Animal Farm, in which all animals are equal, but some are more equal than others.

Anthony de Rothschild began by stressing that there would be no “discrimination … against any group of its citizens” in the Jewish state, not even “to meet immediate needs”. Weizmann and Ben-Gurion also assured the sceptics: “Arabs”—Palestinians—would have equal rights. However, they clarified that within that absolute equality, Jewish settlers would have to have special privileges. Weizmann’s ‘absolute equality’ included the transfer of most non-Jews out of Palestine while permitting “a certain percentage of Arab and other elements” to remain in his Jewish state, the insinuation being as a pool of cheap labour.

Anthony de Rothschild’s vision of equality and non-discrimination was equally compelling: it “depended on turning an Arab majority into a minority”, and to achieve this, there would be “no equal rights” for non-Jews.

Cohen found the scheme dangerous, submitting that the Zionists were “starting with the kind of aims with which Hitler had started”. Cohen did not stop there: he suggested that if a state with equality for everyone were indeed intended, the state should be named with a neutral geographic term. He suggested … ‘Palestine’. The others were horrified at this idea, arguing that if the state had a non-Jewish name, “they would never get a Jewish majority”, in effect acknowledging the use of messianic fundamentalism as a calculated political strategy.

In another obvious but rarely spoken admission, Ben-Gurion clarified that the ‘Jewish state’ was not based on Judaism; it was, rather, based on being a ‘Jew’, that is, by the Zionists’ racial definition.

Asked about borders of his settler state, Weizmann continued in the same surreal manner. He replied that he would consider the partition plan proposed by the Peel Commission four years earlier, in 1937, but that “the line” (the Partition) “would be the Jordan”. This was nonsensical: the Jordan was the Commission’s eastern border for the two states, and so Weizmann’s ‘partition’ meant 100% for his state, 0% for the Palestinians. He went further still: he would “very much” like to “cross the Jordan”, that is, take Transjordan along with Palestine.

At the end of the meeting Weizmann sought to put his proposals into effect officially in the name of all Jews worldwide. Those against his proposals were, in his word, “antisemites”.

Meanwhile, World War II was raging. What was the Jewish Agency’s reaction to the most terrible enemy Jewry has ever known? From the beginning, it was to lobby the Yishuv, the Jewish settlers, not to enlist in the Allied struggle against the Nazis, because doing so would not serve Zionism—even taking advantage of May Day 1940 to lecture the Yishuv to stay in Palestine rather than join the war effort. Another reaction was to conduct a massive theft ring of Allied weapons and munitions, “as if”, as one British military record put it, “paid by Hitler himself”.

Much has been written on the collaboration between the Zionists and fascists during the war, the best known of course being the Haavara Transfer agreement that broke the anti-Nazi boycott. One of the least known was Lehi’s attempted collaboration with the Italian fascists. In its nearly concluded ‘Jerusalem Agreement’ of late 1940, Lehi would help the fascists win the war, and in return the fascists would uproot any Jewish communities not in Palestine and force their populations to Palestine.

If this sounds like a scheme so extreme that only fanatical Lehi could have conjured it, it is essentially what the Israeli state ultimately succeeded at in the early 1950s—most catastrophically, when it conducted a false-flag terror campaign against Jews in Iraq to destroy that ancient community and move its population to Israel as ethnic fodder.

Violence targeting Jews was, and I would argue remains, a core tactic of Zionism. In fact, the single most deadly terror attack of the entire Mandate period was not the bombing of the King David Hotel in 1946 as is commonly thought. Even some of the Irgun’s bombings of Palestinian markets killed more people than the King David attack. But the most deadly single terror attack was the Jewish Agency’s bombing of the immigrant ship Patria in 1940, killing an estimated 267 people, of whom more than 200 were Jews fleeing the Nazis.

The Jewish Agency bombed the Patria because it was bringing the DPs to Mauritius, where the British had facilities for them. The Agency needed the DPs to be settlers in Palestine without delay, and was willing to risk the lives of all aboard in order to get the survivors to remain—which, indeed, they did.

In further violence against its Jewish victims, the Agency framed the dead for the bombing. It spread the lie that the DPs themselves blew up the vessel, that they committed mass suicide rather than not go directly to Palestine, posthumously conscripting the dead to serve the Zionist myth.

This was no aberration, but the driving principle of the Zionist project: Persecuted Jews served the political project, not the other way around.

Another major tactic of violence against Jews by the Jewish Agency and American Zionist leadership was the sabotaging of safe haven in order to force them to Palestine. As but one example, in 1944 US Zionist leaders sabotaged President Roosevelt’s provisional success in establishing a half million new homes for European DPs, most of these homes in the United States and Britain. When Roosevelt’s aide Morris Ernst visited the Zionist leaders in an attempt to save the program, he was, in his words, “thrown out of parlours and accused of treason”— ‘treason’, because he was Jewish, and the Zionists owned Jews.

Nor were those already settled safe. In 1946, the Ashkenazi Chief Rabbi of Palestine, Yitzhak Herzog, conducted a massive kidnapping operation of Jewish orphans that had been adopted by European families when their parents perished years earlier. Removing ten thousand children from their homes was the number he cited to the NY Times as his goal. In the National Archives, I found a copy of his own record of the trip.

Herzog railed against the fierce resistance he met in every country by horrified local Jewish leaders who tried to protect the children. But Herzog used his political clout to circumvent them. In France, for example, facing the steadfast refusal of the Jewish leaders to betray the children, Herzog

met the Prime Minister of France from whom I demanded promulgation of a law which would oblige every family to declare the particulars of the children it houses,

so that those of Jewish background could be exposed and put back in orphanages until they can be shipped to Palestine—quite a Kafkaesque twist on Passover for these children who had just been spared the Nazis.

Herzog’s justification for the kidnappings was that for a Jew to be raised in a non-Jewish home is “much worse than physical murder”. Yet even this ghastly justification fails to explain what was actually taking place, because at the same time Herzog was ‘rescuing’ Jewish orphans from this fate “much worse than physical murder”, his Jewish Agency colleagues were sabotaging Jewish adoptive homes in England for young survivors still in the camps. The real reason for all of it, of course, was that the children were needed to serve the settler project as demographic fodder.

To that end, the Jewish Agency had coerced President Truman to segregate Jewish DPs into Zionist indoctrination camps, despite objections that it echoed Nazi behaviour. For these people who had just survived the unthinkable, then severed from the rest of humanity into these brainwashing camps, there was no such thing as free thought.

The camps nurtured such fanaticism that it shocked a joint US-UK committee that visited in 1946. Before these camps, few DPs wanted to go to Palestine. But now the Committee found them in a delirious state, threatening mass suicide if they did not go to Palestine. Suggestions of new homes in the United States, which had always been the favored destination, were again met with threats of mass suicide.

DPs were also groomed to bring Zionist terrorism to Europe, bombing Allied trains and Allied facilities. The bombing of the British embassy in Rome in 1946, for example, was by DPs brainwashed in these camps, as was a near-catastrophe in the Austrian Alps in 1947 when DPs nearly blew a train off a steep trestle into a deep abyss, which would almost certainly have sent its two hundred civilians and Allied troops to their deaths.

German Jewish immigrants to Palestine during war were outraged by the Zionists’ exploitation of the Nazi horrors they had just fled. This outrage given voice by, among others, the prominent journalist Robert Weltsch, editor of Berlin newspaper until banned by the Nazis in 1938.

Weltsch warned that Zionist leaders

have not yet understood that the enemy seeks the destruction of the Jews … We who have been here only a few years, we know what Nazism is.

Zionists, rather, are “taking part in the crash of European Jewry only as spectators”, fighting the British and keeping Jews from joining the Allied struggle while getting comfortable and rich from their political project in Palestine. Recent immigrants from Germany and Central Europe, he said, have no representation among the Zionist ruling establishment. If they did,

we would have demanded that the Yishuv should put itself at the disposal of Britain for the fight against Hitler and Nazism.

But—and I am still quoting Weltsch—

They do not want to fight against Hitler because his fascist methods are also theirs … They do not want our young men to join the [Allied] Forces … day after day they are sabotaging the English War Effort.

These German Jewish immigrants were shunned by the Zionists, their publications and presses bombed. Even Kiosks were bombed for selling non-Hebrew papers to German Jewish immigrants.

In 1943, a man whom British records describe as “a Jew whose integrity is not open to question” risked his life to warn the British about the threat of Zionism. For his safety, he was referred to only by the code-name ‘Z’.

Z described Zionism as a parallel movement to Nazism. He warned that the Zionist indoctrination of Jewish youth was producing a society of extremists who will use any method necessary to achieve Zionist goals; and he pointed out that, as fascism in Europe has demonstrated, such a society is very difficult to undo once it has taken root. The result, I’m afraid, is what we, or more accurately the Palestinians, are facing today in the so-called ‘conflict’.

How trustworthy is this anonymous testimony? I found at the National Archives a private letter in which Z is identified — he was J.S. Bentwich, the Senior Inspector of Jewish Schools in Palestine.


would have got further towards rescuing the unfortunates in Axis Europe, had they not complicated the question by always dragging Palestine into the picture

—so judged a report by US Intelligence in the Middle East, dated the 4th of June, 1943, entitled “Latest Aspects of the Palestine Zionist-Arab Problem”. It described “Zionism in Palestine” as

a type of nationalism which in any other country would be stigmatised as retrograde Nazism,

and stated that anti-Semitism was essential to it. Whereas

assimilated Jews in Europe and America are noted for being … stout opponents of racialism and discrimination,

Zionism has bred the opposite mentality in Palestine,

a spirit closely akin to Nazism, namely, an attempt to regiment the community, even by force, and to resort to force to get what they want.

US intelligence assailed “the crude conception” being spread of the Palestinian people as “a nomad tent-dweller … with a little seasonal agriculture”, as being “too absurd to need refutation”. The report noted the irony that it was from them that Zionist settlers learned the cultivation of Jaffa oranges. Whereas the Palestinians were self-sufficient, the Zionist settlements exist on massive external financing, and should Jews overseas ever tire of supporting the settlers, “the venture will collapse like a pricked balloon”. The conclusion of this early US intelligence report was however naïve, or at least premature: now that the world “has seen the lengths to which the Nazi creed has carried the nations”, it reasoned that the Zionists “are due to find themselves an anachronism”.

After the war, the Jewish Agency discussed its enemies. They were democracy; the Atlantic Charter, which of course became the basis for the United Nations; Reconstruction; and the fall in anti-Semitism, anti-Semitism having always been Zionism’s drug, without which it would be irrelevant. The Agency sought to exploit anti-Semitism and blamed declining anti-Semitism in the United States on America’s so-called “democratic attitude”.

Nor was this merely a post-war abuse. Even as Jews were still being carted off to the death camps, the New Zionist Organization’s Arieh Altman was typical in arguing that anti-Semitism must “form the foundation of Zionist propaganda”, and the Defence Security Officer in Palestine, Henry Hunloke, reported that it was important for the Jewish Agency to “stir up anti-Semitism … in order to force Jews … to come to Palestine”.

Now, today, when anything approaching this topic is raised, it is twisted by some into the pejorative misstatement that the speaker—in this case, me—is blaming Jews for anti-Semitism.

NO. Rather, it is the simple fact that Zionism requires anti-Semitism, is addicted to it, and seeks to insure that it, or at least the appearance of it, never ends. One need look no further than the satisfaction among many Zionists today at the true anti-Semitism of the incoming US administration of Donald Trump, with Israeli journalists like Yaron London openly applauding this anti-Semitism as welcome news. More about that in a few minutes.

I also mentioned Reconstruction. As one former settlement member, a man named Newton, explained, Zionist leaders were afraid that with the improvement of conditions in Europe the pressure on Palestine would subside. Any improvement in Europe was an anathema to their plans.

What was the Jewish Agency’s reaction to Britain’s role in defeating the worst enemy Jewry has ever known? It saw an opportunity for extortion. The war had devastated Britain’s economy; but when Britain turned to the US for a long term loan to recuperate from its battle against the Nazis, the Agency tried to pressure Washington to deny the loan unless Britain acceded to Zionist demands. The loan was of course ultimately approved, but still in 1948 Zionists assailed US Congressmen for being pro- Marshall Plan, and the Truman administration itself dangled the loan in front of British officials when they tried to bring attention to Zionist atrocities.

By 1946, Zionist terrorism had become the defining daily challenge of life in Palestine, and one hundred thousand British troops proved unable to contain it. Anyone or anything that kept Palestine a functioning society was a target of the Zionists. Trains, roads, bridges, communications, oil facilities, and Coast Guard stations were constantly being bombed. Utility workers, telephone repairmen, railway workers, bomb disposal personnel were murdered. Police were long a favoured target and were gunned down by the dozens.

Among the smaller terror organizations that popped up was one specifically dedicated to Zionists’ long-running fear of Jews befriending non-Jews, the ultimate fear of course being polluting what for the Zionists was the pure Jewish race. As a sample of its methods, the terror group doused a disobedient Jewish girl with acid, severely injuring her and blinding her in one eye.

Zionist terror was aided by the Jewish Agency’s phenomenal intelligence network. The Agency had informers all the way to high-placed sympathetic US officials that fed them intelligence, such that the British learned not even to trust direct messages to US President Truman.

When the UN’s Palestine committee, UNSCOP, visited Palestine in the summer of 1947, the Agency had replaced the committee members’ drivers with spies; had replaced the waiters at the main restaurant they frequented with spies; and most productively, sent five young women to serve at what was called a “theatre network” of house attendants at the building where the members, all men, were being housed. The young women were required to be smart and educated, but above all, in the Agency’s word, to be “daring”. Whatever ‘daring’ meant, they extracted a wealth of information from the key people who were deliberating Palestine’s future.


Extract from Airborne Field Security, Report No. 54, week ending 19 November 47, regarding Jewish sex workers forced to be Zionist spies. National Archives, Kew, FCO 141/14286.

Jewish sex workers were involuntarily recruited as spies. They were told that upon the Zionist victory they would be executed for ‘sleeping with the enemy’, but might be spared if they cooperated now. The practice was so widespread that a standard questionnaire was printed up that the women were to fill out after each British customer. [note: see document detail, above]

To demonstrate the degree to which Jewish Agency plants infiltrated the government and everyday life, a couple of months after one coast guard station was attacked and bombed by the Hagana, it blew up again … but the British were baffled, because this time there had been no attack. They discovered that the construction crew that had rebuilt the station after the previous attack were Hagana, and had simply embedded explosives in the reconstruction, to be detonated when desired.

But the worst problem of infiltration was in the military service, where deadly sabotage by Zionist plants who had joined the forces led, tragically, to orders to remove all Jews from service in Palestine, because there was no way to tell the Zionists from the Jews.

By 1948, this problem spread to key medical personnel. After the Jewish Agency poisoned the water supply of Acre with typhoid in order to expedite the ethnic cleansing of this city that lies on the Palestinian side of Partition, the bacteriologist hired by the British proved to be a Hagana plant or sympathizer, an obstacle to the availability of the vaccine. [Note: see document detail, below. For the injection of typhoid into the aqueduct at Acre, see e.g., Ilan Pappé, Ethnic Cleansing, pp 100-101, and Naeim Giladi, Ben Gurion’s Scandals, pp 10-11]

Selling terror required effective marketing, and for that the Agency harnessed the plight of European Jews at the same time it was exploiting them. A very brief look at the iconic Zionist immigrant story is illustrative—that is of course the USS Warfield, renamed the Exodus for the obvious Biblical iconography.

The Exodus was sold to the world as the desperate attempt of 4,515 Holocaust survivors to reach their last hope of safety and a new life, their promised land. The British, instead, forced them back, not just to Europe, but to their ultimate nightmare: Germany.

That was the story the US and European public got.

In truth, the Exodus was a monstrous propaganda event, grand theatre, not for benefit but at the expense of Jewish survivors. The Jewish Agency knew that Exodus passengers would be turned back, for, among other reasons, their flooding of Palestine with settlers was a tactic to force its political goals. And remember that the entire Exodus cargo of immigrants equalled less than one percent of President Roosevelt’s resettlement plan that the Zionists sabotaged. The DPs themselves were products of the Zionist camps and had been rehearsed to repeat, as one witness described it, whatever Zionist mumbo-jumbo was demanded of them.

As for the return to Germany, it was the Jewish Agency, not the British, that forced the DPs back to Germany. Attempts were being made to find new homes for the Exodus passengers elsewhere—Denmark was one possibility—but this was sabotaged by Ben-Gurion, because it would spoil the Exodus plot.

There was in fact already an alternative to Germany. All the Exodus DPs had the right to disembark in Southern France rather than Germany, but the Agency used violence to prevent them from leaving. The Exodus show required the pathetic spectacle of their forced return to Germany.

The British decided to call the Agency’s bluff. They visited Golda Meir (then Meyerson), and spoke as though it went without saying that the Agency would do anything to spare the DPs the horrific return to Germany. They said that perhaps the DPs do not realize that they are free to disembark in southern France if they wish, or do not believe the British, and suggested that the Agency send a representative to tell them. Meir refused. To paraphrase Israeli Professor Idith Zertal, the greater the suffering of these survivors of the Holocaust, the greater their political and media effectiveness for the Zionists.

A few months after the Exodus affair, the UN recommended partition, with the assumption that a Zionist state would follow. This decision was directly influenced by the certainty of continuing Zionist terror if they did not, as was the disproportionately large land area the UN gave the Zionists.

According to British Cabinet papers, giving the Zionists so much land up front was an attempt to delay the Zionists’ expansionist wars. They knew they couldn’t stop Israeli expansionism, but they hoped to delay it. This appeasement of course failed: within a few months of Resolution 181, the Zionist armies were already waging their first expansionist war, confiscating more than half of the Palestinian side of Partition.

But in a consummately Orwellian irony, the fact that the British were occupying Palestine enabled Zionist leaders to juxtapose their settler project as a liberation movement against British colonizers, and thus for their 1948 terror campaign of expropriation and ethnic cleansing to be spun instead as a war of ‘independence’ or ‘emancipation’.

This so-called war of independence was in truth, to quote the British High Commissioner at the time, “operations based on the mortaring of terrified women and children”. Its broadcasts boasting of their successes, “both in content and in manner of delivery, are remarkably like those of Nazi Germany”. The Zionists were “jubilant” he reported, with “their campaign of calculated aggression coupled with brutality”.

British intelligence, meanwhile, reported that “the internal machinery of the Jewish State and all the equipment of a totalitarian regime is complete, including a Custodian of Enemy Property to handle Arab lands”.

In the Yishuv itself, “persecution of Christian Jews”, by which I assume they meant converts, “and others who offend against national discipline has shown a marked increase and in some cases has reached mediaeval standards”.

All this, to be sure, was before any Arab resistance.

Finally, on the 15th of May, 1948, Britain fled the scene of its crime, for which the Palestinians have been paying ever since. The post-statehood period continued full throttle with the same violent messianic goals, evolving with the new dynamics.

Now, there is no point in my having taken up your time here, no point any tree wasting its paper on this book, unless I thought that it had some value in the collective effort toward ending the conflict. So … How do I think that this book, how do I think my approach, might be constructive?

The historical record makes plain what should already have been obvious from the present reality—that Israel’s and Zionism’s pretenses regarding Jews and Judaism, and in particular its pretense of being a response to anti-Semitism and Jewish persecution, is a fraud. Indeed quite the opposite, it thrives by exacerbating and capitalizing on these, and has turned them into a cynical, deadly business.

Exposing this, in my opinion, is Israel’s—and the conflict’s—Achilles Heel. And this should be a simple case of the Emperor’s New Clothes—except that every time the child points out that the Emperor is naked, he or she is labelled an anti-Semite and silenced.

The US and other governments empower the conflict for their own geopolitical reasons, but why do the publics of those allegedly democratic countries give their tacit acquiescence?

Israel has one of the world’s largest militaries, but its most powerful weapon, the one without which all its others would be impotent, is its Narrative, its creation myth, its auto-biography.

Under the Twilight Zone of this Narrative, Israel is not merely a political entity like any other nation-state, but is transformed into the Old Testament kingdom whose name it adopted for that strategic purpose, striking a powerful chord in the collective Western sub-conscious.

We all know the Narrative more or less, but in order for that Narrative to be ever-present, Israel has crammed it into a 3-word mantra: ‘The Jewish State’.

This phrase—Israel’s self-identity—is a unique construct in the modern world. It is qualitatively distinct from any other country’s relationship with any other religion or cultural group. Judaism is not Israel’s state religion in the sense of a national faith that any nation might adopt. Rather, it presents itself as THE Jewish state, the metaphysical embodiment of Jewry itself, of Judaism, Jewish history, culture, persecution, and most cynical and exploitative of all, the Holocaust.

No country claims it is the Catholic state. Costa Rica, for example, is a Catholic state; it does not suggest that it owns Catholicism, Catholics, or historic Christian martyrdom. We do not have the British government issuing guidelines as to when criticism of the Costa Rican government becomes anti-Catholic hate speech. Norway is a Lutheran state; Tunisia is one of several nations that maintains Islam as a national faith; Cambodia is a Buddhist state. Israel, in contrast, would never acknowledge even the possibility of another Jewish state because it has body-snatched everything Jewish, and holds it hostage to empower its crimes.

Criticise Israeli terror, you will instead hit this three-word human shield—‘The Jewish State’— that Israel hides behind.
What other country on this earth is permitted this perverse tribal claim over a religious or cultural group? This self-proclaimed exceptionalism should strike us as bizarre—even weird—yet we continue to be party to it.

We hear a lot about anti-Semitism these days, and there is of course anti-Semitism in the world, as there are all varieties of bigotry. But let’s just blurt out the obvious: Virtually all of the alleged anti-Semitism we hear about from the Zionists is a lie, smears calculated to silence anyone who seeks to end the horror.

TomSuarezIsrael This smear campaign has been compared to the McCarthy witch hunt of the 1950s, but it is in truth much worse, because whereas Communism is merely a political and economic theory that one can argue for or against, anti-Semitism is inherently evil. In other words, with McCarthyism, one could ultimately respond by saying, Well, let’s say I am a communist, so what?

Zionism’s abuse of anti-Semitism, its exploitation of Judaism and historic Jewish persecution for immoral ends, is profoundly anti-Semitic. Zionism, taken at its word, makes Judaism complicit in its crimes, and thus—taken at its word—succeeds where all the conventional bigots throughout the centuries were powerless.

Meanwhile, as we are seeing more bluntly than ever in the United States, true anti-Semitism is embraced by Zionists because it is invariably pro-Israel.

One hundred years ago, MP Edwin Montagu accused the British government of anti-Semitism for colluding with the Zionists. History has proven him correct. If Israel is forced to stop this anti-Semitic abuse, if it is forced to come out from hiding behind its human shield, the conflict will be seen for what it is and so could not continue. Israel-Palestine will become a democratic, secular country of equals.

And what more poetic year than the Balfour centennial for that to happen.

Thank you.

    So indispensable that it …. didn’t happen, the Arab population was increasing the whole time through natural growth and immigration.

    You mean that the truth – the facts – have anti-Israel bias?
    Here is a perfect definition of Zionism by a decent Jewish man who saw the zionist parasitoid in its formative years: “Z described Zionism as a parallel movement to Nazism. He warned that the Zionist indoctrination of Jewish youth was producing a society of extremists who will use any method necessary to achieve Zionist goals; and he pointed out that, as fascism in Europe has demonstrated, such a society is very difficult to undo once it has taken root.”

    The US has become another victim of the zio-nazis (aka ziocons).
    And it is true that Zionists have a hate-love feelings towards Trump because the whaling of special victimhood could be continued due to the alleged antisemitism of Trump (never mind his orthodox Jewish grandkids).

    Zionism is to Judaism what ISIS is to Islam.

    BOTH zionism, a monstrous aberration of the project of civilization, and ISIS,* were and are aided and abetted by good and pious Anglo Christians and Catholics.

    *Zionism and ISIS are distinguished only in that zionism is a century-old project while ISIS is a recent phenomenon.

    also — this account of the essentially terroristic nature Jewish zionism is deeply flawed in its pervasive references to Nazis and holocaust. The zionist project, and the intent and practice of ethnic removal of Arabs from Palestine, were well underway decades before Nazism was imagined, much less realized. Nazism was a short-term reaction to the zionist (and Bolshevik) threat to the German state — more similar to Palestinian resistance than to zionist aggression.
    Further, as a simple check of the calendar reveals, “the holocaust” as an event “unique in all of history” became that unique event only in the late-1960s, after the trial and extermination of Adolf Eichmann, and Israel’s victory in the 1967 war (with attendant murder of 34 US sailors on USS Liberty, and the intimidation of L B Johnson in the face of that slaughter).

    Zionism is not a form of Nazism, it is its own, unique monstrosity.

    “The Balfour Declaration, in which the British gave away other people’s land”: nope. They couldn’t give it away because it still belonged to the Ottoman Empire.

    Jewish settlers bought their land from Arab landlords who were eager to sell them this land as nobody else wanted it.

    Jewish settlement did not lead to “violent racial displacement.”

    By all accounts, Jewish settlement and development attracted Arabs (and they were called Arabs then, not “Palestinians”) from throughout Palestine and the surrounding Arab lands (whose descendants are today’s “indigenous Palestinians”).

    There was a correlating growth in Arab population when there was Jewish settlement.

    “Dr. Paul Nathan….described Zionist settlers as… carrying on a campaign of terror modeled on Russian pogrom models”

    Dr. Nathan was not referring to Zionist settlement. He was criticizing internal squabbling and bullying within the Jewish establishment in Palestine over making Hebrew the official language of the Jewish community there.

    Nathan was, in fact, a strong supporter of Jewish settlement and development in Palestine.

With a life dedicated to non-violent resistance, he was introduced as the MLK or Ghandi of Palestine, but of course most of us have never heard of him.

    Even though it’s only symbolic, apparently the UNSC vote has been a blow to Israel and a morale booster for Palestinians. Ending the \$10 million/day that US gives Israel (soon to be 15 million daily) should be next. Sam Shama asserts that they don’t need it, hence a meaningless gesture. Wrong. Symbolically, retraction of that support will be significant. It would also be a clear message to and from Americans that we don’t support a racist, colonialist aggressor entity.

    Students at Italian high schools included Nazi leader Adolf Hitler’s autobiography Mein Kampf in recently-compiled lists of their top ten favorite books, The Local reported on Thursday.

    Italian Education Ministry official Alessandro Fusacchia was quoted as calling the students’ choice a “particularly nasty case.” According to Fusacchia, students had been asked to pick from books by Italian authors that were published after 2000.

    “We are looking into it, but we are convinced that it was not a bad interpretation of the request, but rather a free choice,” he said.

    Earlier this year, the Italian newspaper Il Giornale faced criticism after it distributed free copies of an annotated version of Mein Kampf.

    As reported in The Algemeiner, a 2,000-page, two-volume annotated version of Mein Kampf was published in January by Munich’s Institute for Contemporary History after a 70-year copyright held by the German state of Bavaria expired. At the time, the institute said the new version “seeks to thoroughly deconstruct Hitler’s propaganda in a lasting manner.”

    tee hee.

    2000 pages. 2 volumes. “seeks to thoroughly rewrite Hitler’s own writing — er, ” thoroughly deconstruct Hitler’s propaganda in a lasting manner.”

    What are they afraid of — that people might think and make up their own minds about who was a psychopath and who was a propagandist and who was a super-nationalist leader of his country?

    Mein Kampf is 500 or 600 pages.

    There’s an online version, the first complete US translation, prepared in 1939 by New School for Social Research (which was almost totally Jewish at the time) that runs almost 1500 pages. For example, pages 4-5 contains about 180 words by Hitler, and about 500 words of annotation.

    The annotators’ introduction explains that they felt they had to point out to innocent Americans how evil this propagandistic text was, since they wouldn’t understand the ins- and outs of European geopolitics (especially since the largest majority of US population in 1939 was of German origin and German was almost a second language in USA /s).

    Annotators took pains to divorce themselves from nasty racist discourse, which is a real howler, given that one of the major problems the CIA’s post-war psychological warfare operatives (mostly Jewish, according to Cora Sol Goldstein in “Capturing the German Eye”) encountered was the charge of Hypocrisy!, relative to US military — and domestic — treatment of Negroes, which had been on display to German citizens and soldiers throughout US presence in Germany. Thus, psychological warfare operatives were forced to ameliorate their vicious treatment of post-war Germans in order to present a happier face to the scornful German population. iow, American Blacks were partly responsible for US psychological warfare operatives cleaning up their act. A bit.

    It’s particularly ironic that the author of this piece is seeking Justice for Germans in response to a film that valorizes Black people.

  22. Some questions…
    1. Why would the U.S. and Great Britain go along with the establishment of a Jewish state? The financial and political power of the Zionist establishment over key policy makers? Naivety and stupidity of our policy makers? Geopolitical reasons and the need to establish a dependable physical base of operations in the oil rich middle east? Or some other reasons?
    2. Clearly Zionists exert tremendous influence over U.S. policy making. Regarding Obama’s recent move leading to the condemnation of Israeli settlements of Palestine by the U.N., have the Zionists overplayed their hand and are now finally due a comeuppance?
    3. Hillary seemed to be the one in bed with the Jewish lobbies and the big supporter of wars in the middle east, not Trump. Was this merely a deception to fool the voter? Was Trump really their #1 choice and Hillary the backup plan? Was Obama’s condemnation merely the democratic party’s revenge for the Zionists betraying them in the presidential election?
    4. Will this cycle of deception and shifting alliances with the Jewish elite ever end? Given geopolitical considerations, I have to believe that many policy makers may slowly be coming to the conclusion that continued support of Israel and the anti-semitic hogwash that comes with it is much more trouble than it’s worth. Given the significant power of Jews in politics and law, money and banking, and media and entertainment, can our system be fixed to minimize their corrosive effect? Other countries seem to have minimized their power. Why haven’t we?

    No need to exaggerate. I don’t find any reference to suicide bombing. Though it is unsettling to read of radicalising education which would appear to be the equivalent of what turns out Muslim suicide bombers. Which prompts a question about suicide bombers and others (usually young) who are equivalently careless of their lives…

    Where does the motivation come from? With the Tamils in Sri Lanka I have speculated that they have the equivalent to Muslim paradise after death in reincarnation but I suspect that is because I simply lack the imagination (or at my age memory) for really intense tribal or team spirit. The question indeed seems to be one for psychology rather than educational theory or religion. Still I wonder why we don’t see old people decked in medals and using a walking frame waiting to be close enough to the President/PM/Chancellor/Chief of Staff and then blowing them both up or firing a poison dart into the enemy leader.

    The over populating world is much more than a threat to our great grandchildren’s enjoyment of the natural world. It is threatened by a surplus of young males (particularly males) reared in Africa in the Middle East while the West degenerates in quality and quantity. Israel, like it or not, is doing better than any part of Europe in facing that reality.

Then, in a peaceful world would the Zionists have resorted to terrorism? There would probably have been such a weight of Jewish objection to that in Europe and America that only a trickle of immigration to Palestine would have occurred and the state of Israel would at best have got off the ground as some kind of self-governing province in a Palestinian confederate state. Would some Zionists have tried generating anti-Semitism as pressure to emigrate by terrorist outrages? Possibly, but counterproductively in our counterfactual world.

    Nazi apologists will tell you – with a small element of truth – that there was some early encouragement for Zionism by Nazis.

    1. Zionism pre-dated the beginnings of Nazism by at least 40 years.

    2. Germans planted settlements in Palestine alongside zionist Jews, and apparently more successfully than zionist Jews, in the late 1800s and early 1900s. This can be known from Arthur Ruppin’s letter to the zionists in Vienna, 1907. look it up.

    3. There was far more encouragement of Nazism by zionists than the other way around. This can be known from the biographies of Chaim Weizmann and of David Ben Gurion, and from the activities of the Mossad el-aliyeh bet in Germany – Central Europe from ~1917 onward, reaching a peak in ~1938.


    @ dearieme, 10. “Everything changed with Hitler, whose lunacy could not have been anticipated in 1917.”

    If not Hitler and Nazis, then who would have come to power in Germany?
    Would Germany have continued in its deteriorated state — economy failing, women, children and even men prostituting for food, politics chaotic, orphanages overburdened, broken war veterans living on the street, Stalin’s Communist tools attempting to snare Germany in their web, Russian & Polish Jews pouring into Germany, overtaxing an already strained economy — how long could that have gone on? What was the end game?

    Who was in the wings with a better solution?
    Why hadn’t those persons in the wings come forward over Weimar’s dozen-year reign?
    Leo Strauss was among the bright young ideologues with bright solutions to Weimar’s problems; he vamoosed when he realized that the heavily Jewish Weimar project was, to borrow a phrase from Tod Lindberg at Cato Inst., “running out of steam.”

    Wizard of Oz’s scenario is fanciful and does not comport with the facts on the ground.
    History records that National Socialists DID “recover. . . from the Depression in the late 30s like in advance of- and more successfully than – other countries without having occupied the Rhineland etc.”
    FDR, Churchill and zionists could not take Germany’s success for an answer — they were envious of Germany’s Werner von Brauns and Arthur Rudolphs!

    Come to think of it, WizoOz sketched exactly why zionists needed and supported Hitler — he was the perfect boogie man to induce fear to coerce reluctant German Jews to strike their tents and hie off to Palestine.
    We’ve all seen the pattern too many times — Netanyahu elbowing himself into the French protest, then telling French Jews they should ‘be very afraid’ and flee to Israel is one blatant, if somewhat laughable example, but the failed gambit of equating Ahmadinejad with Hitler is even more instructive: the rhetoric was used to keep Jews in a perpetual state of fear and to deter the rest of the world from calling Israelis to account. Hitlerahmadinejad faded into the twilight via the relatively peaceful election in Iran in 2009, so a Plan B, or C or D had to be rolled out.

    There is too much history of zionist bad acts post-1945, and too much history of zionist bad acts well in advance of 1933, such that a sharply delineated pattern has emerged to define zionism. The old narratives of Hitler as bad guy has been stripped of its motive force. What zionists are doing today is consistent with zionist plans from at least as far back as 1880, if not a century earlier.

    These patterns and the zionist project did not emerge from Nazism; the fulfillment of a crucial stage of the zionist project depended upon the German nation reacting to a sustained pattern of zionist (and USA and British) provocations and maneuverings in ways that were partly predictable, and partly coerced, or gamed as unavoidable.

    Where Tamil Tigers got the idea about suicide bombing?

    Sri Lanka civil war and Mossad connection

    “We know from sources other than Ostrovsky that shortly after the war broke out in Sri Lanka, Mossad approached a group of officers from India’s Research and Analysis Wing (RAW, which is India’s equivalent to the CIA). In July 1984 this inner RAW circle arranged with Mossad to send Tamils to Israel for commando training. Mossad paid the RAW team for this by setting up accounts for them in the BCCI bank. (More about this below.) The Tamil commandoes that went to Israel became known as the TELO. They are separate from the main Tamil rebels, known as the LTTE (Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam).

    Meanwhile the Jews simultaneously trained the Tamils’ enemies (the Singhalese) in Israel, but did not tell the main Tamil army, or the main Indian government, or anyone else. In Israel they kept both Goy groups apart. The Jewish purpose for this, as always, was to fan the war to a fever pitch, and make a fortune as the Goyim kill each other.”

    I haven’t had a chance to put this piece to extremely well informed Jewish friends whom I trust but I do find it disturbing. It doesn’t make me doubt the Holocaust (including gas chambers) or the legitimacy of Jews in the 19th century aspiring to move to Palestine or the idea in a world of rising nationalisms that the proposal that there should be a national home for people identifying as Jews was reasonable However the violence and disingenuity that was used to disposess long term and more recently arrived Palestinian Arabs wasn’t it seems adequately excused and explained by post 1933 events and it is surely time that Jews with a conscience about what has been done to the Palestinians should be shown at least the respect that valiant Jewish lawyers winning land rights for Aborigines get in Australia. (It makes one think of displacement activity for those not quite brave enough to lend their considerable talents to helping disposessed Palestinians). Of course the demographics are appalling and can’t be solved on any time frame so long as Israel remains a Jewish state and doesn’t grant Palestinians adequate homeland space even to form a confederacy of Bantustans all modeled on Singapore and Hong Kong.

    “Revisionism as applied to World War II and its origins (as also for previous wars) has the general function of bringing historical truth to an American and a world public that had been drugged by wartime lies and propaganda.

    The least of the lessons that revisionism can teach has already been thoroughly learned ( ed: by a select few): that Germany and Japan are not uniquely “aggressor nations,” doomed from birth to menace the peace of the world. The larger lessons have, unfortunately, yet to be learned.”
    Now revisionism teaches us that this entire myth, so prevalent then and even now about Hitler, and about the Japanese, is a tissue of fallacies from beginning to end. Every plank in this nightmare evidence is either completely untrue or not entirely the truth.

    If people should learn this intellectual fraud about Hitler’s Germany, then they will begin to ask questions, and searching questions…”

To that end the Indians negotiated a ceasefire between the LTTE and the Sri Lankan government and lost about 800 soldiers at the hands of the LTTE before giving up. The land called Eelam in northern Sri Lanka that the LTTE controlled is too small to be viable without being associated with Tamil Nadu hence the Indian fears.

Of course there were a few who supported the idea of emigrating to Palestine (and that was what it was called). But not a lot.

    The Tamils are generally better educated and were favoured by the colonial British. Things came to a head with a murderous campaign against Tamils launched by a chauvinistic government in the late 1970s. Many educated Tamils went abroad and largely supported the LTTE. But the LTTE turned out to be murderous gangsters themselves. Later in the 80s the Singhalese were convulsed in a fratricidal war among themselves. When I was in Sri Lanka transiting during the 80s I found the Singhalese and Tamils to be friendly people but the army was a bunch of ill-disciplined louts. Things must have changed considerably now and if the Mossad are operating there they should enjoy the many fine beaches.

    There is no proof either way, nobody can prove that I am right, nobody can prove that I am wrong. I do not assert my theory as true, only that it seems most probable

    Mussolini was a great inspiration to Hitler. The NSDAP had a further borrowing from, not Zionism, but Jewish Bolshevism, the parallel movement to Zionism, the fashion of much of the NSDAP in revolt, with remnants after it became the state (Gestapo in particular), is clearly based on that of Jewish commisars in the USSR, before Stalin tried some remedial action late in his act. Jackboots, black leather overcoats, and such.

    My impression (from some memoirs I have read) is that it was pretty expensive to book passage to Palestine and complicated to get from one’s home in Germany/Austria/Warsaw to a port whence a ship would be leaving.

    Also, things weren’t that simple once one got there as an immigrant, if one didn’t have connections in the (fairly small) community of those who had chosen to emigrate previously. Also, I think one needed an entry visa to get into Palestine under the Mandate. Which family members in Pal. could organize and pay for.

    Zionist Jews had been maneuvering for the “Jewish state” for over 70 years before they conned Churchill and Roosevelt into waging war on Germany to sow chaos and coerce Jews to migrate to Palestine.

    Zionist Jews had towns, banks, hospitals, government-like institutions, even a mansion for the soon-to-be first president, Chaim Weizmann, built and ready to go well before war broke out. Jews needed the war to sow chaos and make reluctant Jews flee to Palestine, to fulfill the zionist messianic fantasy.

    Nazism had more in common with Palestinians and their resistance than with zionism. Nazism was an attempt to nonviolently remove a corrosive element from German culture, an element that sought to exercise Jewish supremacy over the native (German) people.

    Too much ex post facto speculation on what other people would have done absent a catastrophe of some kind to force them to flee.

    Most of them would have stayed home. There is no basis on which to assume that people would have picked up and emigrated just out of some general malaise, if there were no dire threat where they were.
    Just a few people have the desire and energy to emigrate. Most do not.
    Even well-to-do German and Austrian Jews hung on for as long as they could at home, until something occurred and they could no longer deny the seriousness of their situation.
    That point is very well known, expressed in the question “Why didn’t they get out sooner?”
    Most people do not like to leave home.

    I see, I misread it because you used decimal points instead of commas or spaces as separators, and was tired, vision blurry, seeing the first as a comma, the second as a decimal point.

    Sorry. I know that notation for whole nunbers is common in parts of mainland western Europe, I am curious about how a decimal fraction is expressed in it.

  94. Che Guava says:

    Agreed, and was going to say it was soon to be significantly more in my apology to annamaria after a brief mental calc., but you already said it. I think, even if one forgets the difficult to estimate cost of free rein to steal and profit from industrial and weapon secrets, but take the reserve weapons dumps and such into account, it is even higher than fifteen million per diem.

    As my post and misunderstanding suggest, I find the per annum subsidy for each Jewish Israeli person to be a better measure of how bizarre the situation is than to simply state the per diem average, but can see that the latter also has some power.

    I am thinking my viewpoint may have greater resonance for Americans in ‘flyover states’. Not that I am American, but am a sympathizer with those Americans.

    Israel, the massive external welfare state.

    I suppose you have read Mearshimer and Walt. They go into detail on the many other subsidies, not just the strange arms depots.

    Not to mention the gifts and subsidies from Germany, much cash and a fleet of nuclear-powered submarines that were soon to be nuclear armed. Analysts agree that they are.

    Two double-bizarro points there. The German polity gave (gratis) the nuke-powered boats to Israel as they were approaching the closing of all of their nuclear generating plants (now complete, AFAIK).

    The delivery systems for nukes were pilfered from the USA. Izzies claim the right to say they are not a nuke power, when their arsenal may well exceed that of China, and, from associated rhetoric at times (Samson option), includes things that all of the other players have stopped doing, their ‘Samson option’ sounds like random targets of enhanced fall-out weapons,

    Agreeing with your comments, RobinG, excuse my misinterpretation of the full stop as separator notation, I rarely see it, but know of it.

    I recently read about this in a book, and when I got up to get it to send details to you, i remembered I’d passed it on to my daughter. However you are correct in your way. Till 1858 the land was with the Ottoman Caliph. After that individuals could buy it. In 1880 or thereabouts the Ottomans stopped selling land to the Zionists ( this had to do with Russia and the Turks politics.) Absentee owners did sell land, but one of the nuances highlighted i n the book I mentioned was how the British mandate played a role in not stopping evictions of the flasheen even when the absentee landlords or the tenants complained.

    At this point thats the best I can do for your particular question, and can’t insist i have the details. There are other details, but they’re not relevant for you.

    Ps__ the Turks did start selling to the Zionists around 1890 to pay off their debts. How much land the Zionist bought is debatable, but it’s about 3%, before the British took over. Another 4% was bought under the mandate.

    The German built and supplied submarines for Israel are most assuredly NOT nuclear powered.

    They may be nuclear weapons capable, which is an entirely different animal.

    Also, they were not free. They may have been sold at cost (paid for by the USA if you like). Thus they were used by the Germans as make-work projects during slack time in the ship yards. HdC

    Careful! That best showed your prejudices. The Spanish experience of Jews being forced to sell their land for “pennies” really doesn’t seem to have any relevant similarities.

    As for “the first Zionists differed not an iota from their countrymen Nazis” is way over the top, not just because the Nazis were a product of military defeat and financial melt down most of two generations later, but because the first Zionists cannot be sensibly or reasonably characterised as Germans. Thank you for leading me to check this by Googling “who were the first Zionists” from which I got to Wikipedia on Zionism and from there lots more interesting links. Russian pogroms were of key importance. I trust you will enjoy making yourself better informed (and if you are of Russian Orthodox background you may enjoy the details of Catholic and Papal anti-Semitism).

    “Even well-to-do Austrian and German Jews” – quite, they had a lot to lose.

  99. @Skeptikal

    8I’m reading John Keays’ “Sowing the Wind” and was intrigued to read that, between 1881 and 1914 about 2 million Jews emigrated to the US but only 35,000 to Palestine but that even that 1000 a year “was already provoking unrest amongst its [the Ottoman Empire’s] Arab inhabitants.

    I think that bypasses your points because it makes it clear that there wouldn’t have had to be much Jewish immigration in the 30s or 40s to provoke the revolt Arab and British restrictions on immigration that was at the heart of my counterfactual speculation.

    I am not happy with me when posting incorrect information.

    It is rare.

    You are correct, those boats have diesel-electric propulsiion.

    I read an article that I thought reliable at the time, said they were nuclear propelled, since France has nuclear-propelled boats, it was logical to not question it.

    They may be nuclear weapons capable, which is an entirely different animal.

    Indeed, but ‘may be’nuclear weapons capable’ is a classic understatement, ‘almost certainly are’ is correct. Where do you think they got the submarine-launched cruise-missile tech? Pilfered from the USA.

    Also, they were not free. They may have been sold at cost (paid for by the USA if you like).

    From reading, I believe that you are wrong on that. It was a make-work scheme in Germany, sure, but from my reading, the subs were gratis, part of the never-ending imposts on Germany.

  101. Anon • Disclaimer says:

    I don’t understand why the author always puts scare quotes around the word Arab. At the time of the Balfour Declaration the majority of Palestinians were undoubtedly supporters of the political agenda of the Arab Revolt which was to create a unified, independent Arab state in as much of the Arabic-majority parts of the former Ottoman Empire as they and their allies could liberate from Turkish and German forces – the agenda which the British and French had repeatedly pledged to support.

    After the war (Remember the good old days, when wars ended?) the betrayal of those promises was so swift and complete that it is difficult to know how small of an Arab state would have satisfied the national aspirations of the Arabs, but it surely would have included Palestine. It seems to me that the short-lived Kingdom of Syria intended to unite the Fertile Crescent from Aqaba to the Gulf south of Basra.

    At Versailles in 1919 the Allies assured Sharif Feisal that an Allied Commission would be sent to the Arab territories of the former Empire to ascertain the will of the people in regard to their political future. This commission would have included British, French, US, Italian, and any other allied commissioners who wished to participate, but the British and French were quick to reneg on that pledge, as well.

    It was left to Woodrow Wilson to try to live-up to his lofty ideals of self- determination and consent of the governed. In the end, it was only the American King-Crane Commission that went to the region to make those determinations. The Commission was constrained by time, by lack of staff and by its allies’ pressure from exploring opinions beyond what became Lebanon, Syria Palestine and Trans-Jordan after the neo imperial partitions, but King-Crane found strongest support for the Arab agenda. Nowhere was that support stronger than in Palestine. Of course, the US had little influence compared to Britain and France, who proceeded to carve-up the region into the collection of small, weak, illegitimate statelets that the neoimperial powers thought they could easily manipulate – an “empire on the cheap”, controlled through “divide and rule”, to quote Churchill.

  102. Didi says:

    The terrorists even murdered Jews who had migrated to the Mandate and who were too friendly to the Arabs. The most notorious case was that of the Dutch poet De Haan who was assassinated-I believe by the Haganah-in 1924 in Jerusalem in broad daylight. In the 1980’s it became clear who had ordered and who had carried out this crime.

  103. Didi says:

    When Israel became a state the following joke began to be told. There were joyous demonstrations in the German kibbutz Naharia. People had made spanners and placards reading “Israel schon gut aber Naharia bleibt Deutsch”!

  104. Didi says:

    I do not know what the ideological composition of the early Zionist settlers in the British mandate was. From my own experience I can vouch that the Zionists of the 1930’s were a very mixed bag. They ranged from ultra-orthodox, fascist, via European “Liberal” and Social Democrats to Communists.
    However, my very brief experience with the 1930’s Jewish youth organization “Maccabi” in the Netherlands was that boys and girls were trained to be military “liberators” that is to say emulate Joshua and kick all Arabs out of Eretz Israel. By any means. After only two meetings of this so-called scouting organization I left.
    One of the training exercises was a simulated “stand (armed of course) guard at a kibbutz.

    I note that you do not reply, my only error was on propulsion, you tried to imply incorrectness on two other points, you know you are wrong on both, so the reasons for your assertions are suspect.

    However, I appreciate the correction re. the propulsion.

  108. Che Guava says:

    That is a very interesting comment.

    Didi, how old are you? If you are genuine, my sincere congratulations to you. If true, you must be near to or in your nineties. So I suspect that you are a fake.

    Also for your departure, I have done similar, leaving certain types of work on principle, if more people were to do it, the world would be a little better.

  109. Great article. I’m sure the House of Lords ate it up (how many were in attendance?).

    Similar tactics of terrorism and ethnic cleansing were of course used by Turkey in 1915 and Pakistan in 1947, and also Islamists of all eras.

    All these ethno-religious critters should rot in Hell.

  111. According to the report, the United States gave Israel \$3.1 billion for Fiscal Year 2016 in direct bilateral military aid (also referred to as Foreign Military Financing or FMF). Congress also gave \$487.6 million to “joint” U.S.-Israel missile defense programs (designed to protect Israeli territory from potential outside threats), bringing total military aid to Israel to \$3.6 billion per year.

    Put another way, American taxpayers give Israel \$9.8 million per day (in 2016).

  112. Notes on what the upper class sponsors of Zionism might reasnably have thought.

    If you buy up all the freehold (or leaseholds from the state (Ottoman – or colonial/state governments in Queensland or Western Australia e.g.) which give exclusive possesseion equivalent to freehold (in English law anyway a feudal concept, not absolute title) surely you should be able to make it your own people’s self governing entity from which you can exclude others and give them no say???

    Cp. Land rights for Aborigines to the Balfour Declaration. In the 1970s land rights were usuall conferred by buying back pastoral leaseholds.

    Note the exclusion of uninvited non Aborigines from vast areas of Australia.

    But note the limitations too. No child marriages allowed for example – or spearings as summary punishment….so note the notion of primitive people is unashamedly applied in practice.

    It was a rich Jewish leader of the Bar who led the successful Mabo case which established Aboriginal title in place of the ling establishe legal doctrine that Australia was/had been terra nullius [no one’s land] before being claimed for the British Crown in the 18th century. I sat next to his widow at dinner recently but failed to ask her what he thought of Zionism. They would have been intelligent subtle thoughts I am sure. Footnote oddity: when he was a junior barrister 20 years earlier he had a brief for the Scientologists when a Royal Commission was held in Victoris into their activities. I don’t know if he was giving his time to them as I am sure he did later to Eddie Mabo (whose claim in the Torres Strait was treated as rectifying the law for Aboriginal Australia as well) but recall that he was trying to share the burden of massive tedious preparation.

    Indeed, it’s based upon the fake ‘6M Jews & impossible gas chambers.’
    author said:

    To paraphrase Israeli Professor Idith Zertal, the greater the suffering of these survivors of the Holocaust, the greater their political and media effectiveness for the Zionists.

    – If there was ‘a plan to kill every Jew the Germans could get their hands on’ then why are there countless numbers of so called “survivor\$”?

    – If the alleged ‘holocaust’ was fact, then why are there laws in Europe to prevent scrutiny of it? What kind of “truth” needs to imprison people to prevent free speech?

    And why have supremacist Jews have been marketing the ‘6,000,000’ lie since at least 1869?

    The resonance is not unique to “flyover” states.

  115. Arabs owned the vast majority of the land even after the attempts to buy them out by the Zionists. Despite this, the Zionist armies took over much of that land by force.
