The Zionist ideal of a Jewish state is keeping Israelis and Palestinians from living in peace.

Read the article: Zionism is the problem

The Zionist armies that now occupy Palestine claim their ancient Jewish prophets predicted that in the "last days of this world" their own God would raise them up a "messiah" who would lead them to their promised land, and they would set up their own "divine" government in this newly-gained land, this "divine" government would enable them to "rule all other nations with a rod of iron."

Did the Zionists have the legal or moral right to invade Arab Palestine, uproot its Arab citizens from their homes and seize all Arab property for themselves just based on the "religious" claim that their forefathers lived there thousands of years ago? Only a thousand years ago the Moors (Arabs) lived in Spain. Would this give the Moors of today the legal and moral right to invade the Iberian Peninsula, drive out its Spanish citizens, and then set up a new Moroccan nation ... where Spain used to be, as the European zionists have done to our Arab brothers and sisters in Palestine?...

In short the Zionist argument to justify Israel's present occupation of Arab Palestine has no intelligent or legal basis in history ... not even in their own religion. Where is their Messiah?

Dr Shlomo Sand, a Jewish expert on European history at Tel Aviv University in Israel, argues that the idea of a Jewish nation, whose need for a safe haven was originally used to justify the founding of the state of Israel, is a myth invented little more than a century ago. Dr. Sand, in his book "When and How Was the Jewish People Invented?", drew on extensive historical and archaeological research to support not only this claim but several more, all equally controversial. In addition, he argues that the Jews were never exiled from the Holy Land, that most of today's Jews have no historical connection to the land called Israel and that the only political solution to the country's conflict with the Palestinians is to abolish the Jewish state. The idea for the book had come to him many years ago, Dr. Sand said, but he waited until recently to start working on it. "I cannot claim to be particularly courageous in publishing the book now," he said. "I waited until I was a full professor". For 2,000 years, Dr. Sand argues, Jews stayed away from Jerusalem not because they could not return but because their religion forbade them from returning until the messiah came..

The explosive thesis of When and How Was the Jewish People Invented?, has sent shockwaves across Israeli society when it was published last year. After 19 weeks on the Israeli best-seller list, the book is being translated into a dozen languages and will be published in the United States this year by Verso. Its thesis has ramifications that go far beyond some antediluvian academic debate.

"The 9/11 attacks were a U.S. project, necessarily with the cooperation of Israel.

If the truth of 9/11 had come out in 2002, there would have been no invasion of Afghanistan, no Iraq war, none of the arrogant, purposely self-destructive acts of government that have occurred.

Their prize is a ruined nation with a broken military and a well-deserved reputation in the world as a monster of calamity and death."

I quote Karin Fiedmann (an ethnically Jewish anti-Zionist):

"American Jews are actually being trained since childhood to interact with non-Jews in a deceitful and arrogant manner, in coordination with each other, to emotionally destroy Gentiles and Israel critics, in addition to wrecking their careers and interfering with their social relationships. This is actually deliberate, wicked, planned behavior motivated by a narcissistic self-righteous fury."

I quote Jeremy Salt (May 01, 2009):

"The Holocaust generated enormous emotional support across the western world for the establishment of Israel. It might not have been the ‘pretext’ for its creation of Israel, as Mahmud Ahmedinejad is reported to have said in Geneva, but it was certainly exploited by the Zionists to make sure that Israel came into existence. Refugees from Europe might have gone elsewhere, but for ideological reasons the only place the Zionist movement wanted them to go was Palestine. The media joined the chorus calling for the creation of a Jewish state in Palestine as a solution to the refugee problem and an antidote to anti-semitism. In fact removing the victims from the scene of the crime was no answer to the historical problem of European anti-semitism. Their ‘solution’ allowed European governments to evade responsibility for the consequences of actions in which all of them were in some way complicit. A people who were in no way responsible for the massive crimes which had been committed against Jews were being made to pay for them. Their rights and interests were treated with as much indifference or disdain as anti-semites had traditionally treated the rights and interests of Jews. The export of the ‘Jewish problem’ to Palestine was in its own way anti-semitic."

"The Holocaust is the secular religion of the Western world, complete with punishment and prison sentences for heretics who reject it. It is an “other god” that has been raised above all other religions, including the Christian religion and the concept of God itself, and in this sense it truly is a form of anti-Christian idol worship."

The Arabs, Muslim and Christian, were promised independence and self-government after WWI. In the McMahon correspondence, the British promised independence to the Arabs, including the Palestinians, if they would fight against Turkey who was allied with Germany (Remember Lawrence of Arabia?). President Woodrow Wilson also declared that WWI was fought to make the world safe for democracy. The 12th of his Fourteen Principles for the post-war world was:

"The Turkish portions of the present Ottoman Empire should be assured a secure sovereignty, but the other nationalities which are now under Turkish rule (e.g. Arabs) should be assured an undoubted security of life and an absolutely unmolested opportunity of autonomous development."

Had the Western world adhered to Wilson's admirable program, the Ninth Crusade against the Muslim would never have begun and there would be no war in the Middle East today. The Arab people, just released from Turkish domination, would have decided what states to create and who would rule them. They could have entered the world as democratic and prosperous nations. However, Wilson was unable to force his program on the war-mongering colonialists of Britain and France. They insisted on occupying the Arab Middle East. Instead of democracy and self-rule, the Arabs got military occupation by the Western powers. France took control of what became Lebanon and Syria, and Britain occupied what became Iraq, Jordan, and Palestine. (Shamed by what happened to British honor, Lawrence returned his medals to the British government).

He promised Arabs independence from the �hateful Ottomans�, but nothing good came out of their betrayal: British, American and later Zionist colonizers shared the spoils, while the natives became even more oppressed.

In 1916 AD the British Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs Arthur James Balfour prepared a letter which was issued in November 2nd, 1917 AD expressing government approval of Zionism with "The establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people". This letter is called Balfour Declaration "His Majesty's Government view with favor the establishment in Palestine of a National Home for the Jewish people...it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of the existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine." The latter phrase has all but disappeared from the Western media and from the history of this problem.

The letter was addressed to Lord Rothschild, who was a member of the Jewish international BANKING family, and who generously offered loan after loan to the Bank of England. Nathan Rothschild was quoted: "I care not what puppet is placed upon the throne of England to rule the Empire on which the sun never sets. The man who controls Britain's money supply controls the British Empire, and I control the British money supply." It has been said that "the wealth of Rothschild consists of the bankruptcy of nations". Edmond James Rothschild (1845 - 1934) helped to finance the establishment of Jewish communities in Palestine.

One of the things that made the Balfour Declaration such an astonishing document and commitment was that Britain had no right of any kind to give Palestine away, in whole or in part, to anybody.

Britain with the Balfour Declaration had had no right to give away what it did not possess.

The British government, as author of the Balfour Declaration, possessed no sovereighnty or domination in Palestine enabling it to make a valid promise of any rights, whatever their nature and extent, in favour of the Jews of the world. It is immaterial whether these rights were meant to be territorial, political or cultural. On the date that the Balfour Declaration was made, Palestine formed part of Turkey, and neither its territory nor its people were under the jurisdiction of the British Government. The Declaration was void on the basis of the principle that a donor cannot give away what does not belong to him. By itself the Balfour Declaration was legally impotent.

Those responsible for drafting the Balfour Declaration had been unable to bring themselves to acknowledge the existence of the Arabs of Palestine as a people. The term "Arab" or "Arabs" did not appear in the Balfour Declaration. It reduced the 93 per cent Arab majority to "existing non-Jewish communities". That was an expression, a formula, which could only have been invented to serve a hidden agenda.

Britain played the Arab card, promising them independence after they revolted against the Turks, and having played it, Britain then betrayed the Arabs, the Arabs of Palestine most of all, and the Arabs made the mistake of trusting the British.

For Britain the promise was to maintain an "Empire", and later on, for the Americans the case was to create one.

Britain has used Zionism to further its imperial ambitions in 1917, and later on, in the mid 1950s, Americans, who were seeking merit in the idea of using Zionism to serve America's unstated but nontheless real imperial ambitions. The Zionists understood that anything the British had done, the Americans could do bigger and better.

American-Israel Public Affairs Committee, known as AIPAC

"AIPAC is generally regarded as one of the three most powerful lobbies in Washington. Unlike most other major lobbies, which engage on a variety of issues, AIPAC has only one objective: strengthening American support for the state of Israel through creation of a "special relationship" between the two countries. AIPAC’s support is uncritical, no matter what Israel does and no matter what the impact on the U.S. might be. Because Congress and the White House are fearful of confronting AIPAC, it enjoys a unique status. Even though it acts as a foreign lobby, it has not been required to comply with the Foreign Agents Registration Act. Not having to register is significant, as it means that AIPAC’s sources of income and its disbursements are not a matter of public record." Click read the article

There was also a particular strategic consideration which played a part in motivating Britain to issue the Balfour Declaration. It was the need to protect the Suez Canal, which was vital for the maintenence of "the spinal cord" of the British Empire. Weizmann in his book "Trial and Error" recalled a conversation he had on the subject of the Canal with Lord Robert Cecil, British's assistant secretary of state for foreign affairs. He said: "Jewish Palestine would be a safeguard to England, in particular in respect to the Suez Canal."

Edwin Samuel Montagu - the only Jewish Englishman in the British cabinet and Secretary of State for India - issued a memorandum marked SECRET and dated 23 August 1917, insisting that any declaration Balfour might make had to contain safeguards for the rights of the Arabs in Palestine. Montagu was a passionate anti-Zionist and lead the fight against the creation of a Jewish state. Montagu's memorandum was not de-classified, not considered to be fit for public consumption, until 1970. It was suppressed for more than half a century. Montagu said: "Zionism has always seemed to me to be a mischievous political creed, untenable by any patriotic citizen of the United Kingdom."

Another quote from Montagu:

I would willingly disenfranchise every Zionist. I woud almost be tempted to proscribe the Zionist Organization as illegal and against the national interests....

On March 5, 1919 the New York Times revealed that 30 of the most prominent and outstanding Jewish Americans had signed a petition to President Wilson. It was a fiercely anti-Zionist petition. In their petition the anti-Zionist Jewish Americans warned against any U.S. commitment "now or in the future to Jewish territorial soverienty in Palestine." Such a demand, the anti-Zionists said, "not only misrepresented the trend of the history of the Jews who ceased to be a nation 2,000 years ago, but involves the limitation and possible annulment of the larger claim of Jews for full citizenship and human rights in all lands in which those human rights are not yet secure."

The anti-Zionist petition to President Wilson contained this statement:

" It is not true that Palestine is the national home of the Jewish people, and of no other people... To subject Jews to the possible recurrence of such bitter and sanguinary conflicts, which would be inevitable, would be a crime against the triumph of their whole past history and against the lofty and world-embracing visions of their great prophets and leaders... Whether the Jews be regarded as a 'race' or as a religion, it is contrary to democratic principles for which the World War was waged to found a nation on either or both of these bases."

President Wilson appointed King-Crane commission of inquiry in Palestine. On the subject of the Balfour Declaration, King and Crane wrote this: "A national home is not equivalent to making Palestine into a Jewish state nor can the erection of such a Jewish state be accomplished without the graveest trespass upon the civil and religious rights of the existing non-Jewish communities."

On 2 October, 1919 President Wilson suffered a thrombosis, a stroke, and was incapacitated.

Balfour himself said in a memorandum on 11 August 1919 which was prepared for the Paris Peace Conference:

"In Palestine we do not propose even to go through the form of consulting the wishes of the present inhabitants of the country... The four great powers are committed to Zionism. And Zionism, be it right or wrong, good or bad, is rooted in age long tradition, in present needs, in future hopes, of far profounder import than the desires prejudices of the 700,000 Arabs who now inhabit that ancient land."

The Jewish People, Zionism, and the Question of Justice
Mark Braverman, Ph.D.

Mayer Amshel Rothschild, the founder of the Rothschild fortune, at the time of his death in 1812, created a trust of his estate, by will, for the elevation of the Jewish race and the establishment of a Jewish World Empire. The estate has been preserved and managed since his death as a unit in pursuance of the provisions of his will.

The Rothschild family commission biographies give the illusion that their fortune has dwindled but researchers estimate their wealth as close to 500 trillion Dollars, i.e. more than half the wealth of the entire world.

Arthur Koestler wrote that in the letter "one nation solemnly promised to a second nation the country of a third." More than that, the country was still part of the Empire of a fourth, namely Turkey."

David Hirst, commenting on the vagueness of the Balfour Declaration, says that

"The document bears Balfour's name, but in reality it was the Zionists themselves who, in very large measure, both inspired the Declaration and framed its text. It must be reckoned the finest flower of Zionist diplomacy at its most sophisticatedly ambivalent....suffice it to say here... that the Zionists who framed the declaration saw in it the charter of a future Jewish state..."

If, as the Israelis insist, that "national home" was actually become a state of Israel, then the intention of the Declaration was to create two states in Palestine, one Jewish and one non-Jewish. Some 85 years later the latter state has still not come into existence.

Winston Churchill wrote in 1920 immediately following his assertion that Bolshevism is led and initiated mostly by Jews:

"But if, as may well happen, there should be created in our life time by the banks of the Jordan a Jewish State under the protection of the British Crown, which might comprise three or four millions of Jews, an event would have occurred in the history of the world which would, from every point of view be beneficial, and would be especially in harmony with the truest interests of the British Empire"

I quote Uri Avnery (April 9, 03 article):

"The Balfour declaration of 1917, that promised the Jews a homeland in Palestine, had two parents. The mother was Christian Zionism (among whose adherents were illustrious statesmen like Lord Palmerston and Lord Shaftesbury, long before the foundation of the Zionist movement), the father was British imperialism. The Zionist idea allowed the British to crowd out their French competitors and take possession of Palestine, which was needed to safeguard the Suez Canal and the shorter sea route to India."

The most preposterous Zionist slogan from the early days was to describe Palestine as "a land without people for a people without land." This was propagated by irresponsible journalists who should have ridiculed it whenever they mentioned it. Obviously that land was inhabited by a great many people, including quite a few who were Jews.

Golda Meir, the Israeli Prime Minister, considered by Israelis as a great leader and by others as one of history's great killers, disputed the facts and said: "It was not as though there was a Palestinian people in Palestine and we came and threw them out and took their country away from them. They did not exist."

A quote from Robert John's Paper Presented to the Fifth International Revisionist Conference titled:

"Behind the Balfour Declaration:

Britain's Great War Pledge To Lord Rothschild"

"The Balfour Declaration may be the most extraordinary document produced by any Government in world history. It took the form of a letter from the Government of His Britannic Majesty King George the Fifth, the Government of the largest empire the world has ever known, on which -- once upon a time -- the sun never set; a letter to an international financier of the banking house of Rothschild who had been made a peer of the realm."

Congressman Louis T. McFadden who, for more than ten years, served as chairman of the Banking and Currency Committee, stated that the international bankers are a "dark crew of financial pirates who would cut a man's throat to get a dollar out of his pocket... They prey upon the people of these United States."

Arthur Koestler wrote that in the letter (Balfour Declaration):

one nation solemnly promised to a second nation the country of a third. More than that, the country was still part of the Empire of a fourth, namely Turkey.

"To the Arabs, the Balfour Declaration was a betrayal of Arab nationalism and, while promising to protect their rights, was simply an attempt to legitimize Jewish political domination over Palestine in complete disregard to the numerical superiority of the Arabs and the Wilsonian principles of majority rule and self-determination".

Before the Europeans went to World War I the guiding principles of the foreign policy President Wilson wanted to pursue were these: a refusal to exert America's material power against weaker nations; a belief that the rights and interests of small nations should be respected; and the view that peoples then dominated by the big European powers should be set on the road to self-determination. Woodrow Wilson was a man of many abilities who wanted to use the power of the presidency to change the world for the better; and who really believed that doing so was a mission impossible. Wilson was a political scientist and historian and received his Ph.D. after advanced studies in government and history at the Johns Hopkins university.

But President Wilson failed. Whether the retreat would have happened if President Wilson had not suffered a stroke at a critical moment is a good question.

Because of that failure America would become with time the leading supporter of Israel right or wrong; a fact of international life that allowed the Zionist state to behave without regard for international law and, along the way, to pursue, with an arrogance to match its overwhelming military might, expansionist policies which heaped humiliation after humiliation upon all Arabs and the entire Moslem world. The phenomenon of Anti-Americanism has its origins in America's retreat from the moral high ground in 1919.

Winston Churchill: "In 1956 Churchill told President Eisenhower, "I am, of course, a Zionist, and have been ever since the Balfour Declaration." ( Herbert Mitgang, "The Official Churchill in One Volume," N.Y. Times, Nov. 6, 1991)."

The Zionists promptly seized upon the Balfour Declaration as justification for its intent to establish a completely Jewish State in Palestine. Among other claims it announced that "Palestine is to become as Jewish as England is English."

Aquote from: Oren Ben-Dor

(Israeli citizen who teaches the philosophy of law
and political philosophy at University of Southampton)

Who are the real terrorists in the Middle East?

"The very creation of Israel required an act of terror. In 1948, most of the non-Jewish indigenous people were ethnically cleansed from the part of Palestine which became Israel. This action was carefully planned. Without it, no state with a Jewish majority and character would have been possible.

Since 1948, the "Israeli Arabs", those Palestinians who avoided expulsion, have suffered continuous discrimination. Indeed, many have been internally displaced, ostensibly for "security reasons", but really to acquire their lands for Jews.

Surely Holocaust memory and Jewish longing for Eretz Israel would not be sufficient to justify ethnic cleansing and ethnocracy? To avoid the destabilization that would result from ethical inquiry, the Israeli state must hide the core problem, by nourishing a victim mentality among Israeli Jews.

Jews today have a strong influence on the most powerful country in the world, and the Holocaust played an important role in the establishment of the State of Israel."

The World Zionist movement, as its Jewish founders called themselves, had plans to acquire a homeland for all Jews worldwide, even though most were far from homeless, and many did not want another home. It arose in the late 19th century and in 1897 Theodor Herzl, a Hungarian-born Jew who worked as a journalist and playwright in Vienna, the capital of Austro-Hungarian Empire, organized the first Zionist congress in Basel, Switzerland, and founded a permanent World Zionist Organization.

No wonder Albert Einstein objected to the establishment of the State of Israel when Truman gave Israel the go-ahead. Albert also turned down the offer to be president of Israel and the Likud Party was branded by prominent US Jews as being Racist, Fascist and Superstitious.

Albert Einstein, Sidney Hook, Hannah Arendt and twenty-five other prominent Jews, in a letter to The New York Times (December 4, 1948), condemned Menachem Begin's and Yitzhak Shamir's Likud party as "fascist" and espousing "an admixture of ultra-nationalism, religious mysticism and racial superiority." The same theme is echoed in William Zukerman's 1934 article in The Nation, "The Menace of Jewish Fascism. " This is also the premise of Michael Selzer's book, The Aryanization of the Jewish State.

"That biblical promise is Israel's only claim to legitimacy. But whatever God meant when he promised Abraham that "unto thy seed have I given this land, from the river of Egypt unto the great river, the Euphrates," it is doubtful that he intended it to be used as an excuse to take by force and chicanery a land lawfully inhabited and owned by others."

"Compared to the power of this myth, does it really matter that the Exodus from Egypt never took place? Thousands of Egyptian documents deciphered in recent years leave no room for doubt: the exodus of masses of people, as described in the Bible, or anything remotely like it, just never happened. These documents, which cover in the finest detail every period and every part of Canaan during this epoch prove beyond any doubt that there was no "Conquest of Canaan" and no kingdom of David and Solomon. For a hundred years, Zionist archeologists have devoted tireless efforts to finding even a single piece of evidence to support the Biblical narrative, all to no avail."

Uri Avnery's article reviewes actual Jewish history,
the (very different) way it is perceived and presented, and its present-day implications

The Biblical law that God will not allow a disobedient Jewish nation to dwell in Palestine is one of the most emphasized doctrines of the Old Testament. It is stated in the clearest language more than two dozen times in Leviticus and Deuteronomy alone! Nowhere does the Bible hint that Jews can return as a nation in unrighteousness, as they did during the 20th century.

Remember the word that Thou didst command Thy servant Moses, saying, If you are unfaithful, I will scatter you among the peoples; but if you return to Me and keep My commandments and do them, though those of you who have been scattered were in the most remote parts of the heavens, I will gather them there and will bring them to the place where I have chosen to cause My name to dwell." (Neh. 1:9

Thus, disobedient Jews can neither own Palestine nor lawfully occupy it.

Rev. Ted Pike

"For the past century, most evangelical Christians and religious Jews have agreed that national return of Jews to Palestine is the will of God. They believed it fulfills abundant Old Testament prophecies. But what does the Old Testament really say? Many passages flatly state that Israel can�t inhabit the land except in obedience to God. (1) For Jews to dwell in His holy land, God expects them to practice righteousness and mercy, even to Palestinians.

Israel has ruthlessly mistreated the Palestinians, both Muslim and Christian, expelling 800,000 of them in 1948 through terror. Original Zionist terrorism is the predominant cause of international Arab terrorism. This record strongly argues that Israel has still not met God's moral requirements. (2) Such requirements were satisfied by holy men of God whom God permitted to enter Canaan�Hebrew saints like Caleb, Joshua, Ezra, and Nehemiah. God told Abraham He would deliver the covenant blessings He promised (including rights to occupy the land) only if Abraham's descendants performed these same righteous works. (Gen. 18:19)

How can God approve of Israel's return when she does the opposite of righteous Abraham?"

I refer to a book "The Bible Unearthed: Archeology's New Version of Ancient Israel and the Origin of its Sacred Texts". The authors are Israel Finkelstein, director of an archaeological institute at Tel Aviv University, and Neil Asher Silberman, director of a Belgian archaeological institute. They found that the "great" Jewish kingdom existed in something like their fabled extent for a tiny fraction of the period traditionally alleged. Their boundaries never came close to the "Greater Israel" of contemporary Jewish fundamentalism. The rest of the time, Judah and Israel are thought to have been, for the most part, very primitive entities, devoid of literate culture or substantial administrative structure, extending to only a small, landlocked part of what is now called Palestine. The great structure of the Biblical era are, all of them, attributed to Canaanite cultures. The authors refer to the Biblical kingdom at its greatest extent as a "multi-ethnic society." The idea that such a past could validate a Jewish historical claim to Palestine is simply ludicrous, even if it could be shown-which it cannot- that today's Jews are in some legal sense, heirs to the ancient Israelite kingdoms.

"Zionism today is the real enemy of the Jews"

The debate was organized by intelligence (the London Forum for Live Debate) sponsored by the Evening Standard - a local London newspaper. It was chaired by Richard Lindley, a veteran television reporter for ITN and the BBC.

In December 1917 during World War I the British General Sir Edmund Allenby, with the help of the Arab Revolt against the Turkish rulers, captured Jerusalem from the Turks, and by October 1918 occupied the rest of Palestine. Relying on British assurances and promises, given by Lawrence the Arabs had no doubt that their sacrifices and military successes would justify Britain's recognition and support of Arab nationalism. At the same time the British wanted to use the Jews as a wedge against France and split the Arab Nation by creating a British Mandate over Palestine (and later creating the State of Israel). The Mandate violated the sovereignty of the people of Palestine and their natural rights of independence and self-determination. Palestine was the national home of the Palestinians from time immemorial. The establishment of a national home there for an alien people was a violation of the legitimate and fundamental rights of the Palesinian inhabitants.

In Britain the House of Lords opposed the incorporation of the Balfour Declaration in the Mandate. On 21 June 1922 there was a debate in that House on a motion declaring the Mandate to be unacceptable in its present form-i.e. because it did incorporate the Balfour Declaration. Speaking for the motion, Lord Islington said that in its existing form the Mandate directly violated the pledges made by His Majesty's Government to the people of Palestine. In the course of his prophetic speech he said the following: "In fact, very many orthodox Jews, not only in Palestine but all over the world, view with the deepest misapprehension, not to say dislike, this principle of a Zionist home in Palestine...The scheme of Zionist Home seeks to make Zionist political predominance effective in Palestine by importing into the country extraneous and alien Jews from other parts of the world...It is literally inviting subsequent catastrophe...What we have done, by concession, not to the Jewish people but to a Zionist extreme section, is starting a running sore in the East, and no one can tell how far that sore will extend." Lord Islington had pointed out that the Mandate's provisions concerning the establishment of a Jewish national home were inconsistent with Article 22 of the Covenant of the League of Nations. Article 22 was of supreme importance because it was the one that defined the basic objective of the Mandate system. It was to assure "the well-being and development" of the peoples inhabiting the Mandated territories; an objective described by Article 22 as forming "a sacred trust of civilisation." Lord Islington addressed the House of Lords and said: "When one sees in Article 22... that the well-being and development of such peoples should form a sacred trust of civilisation, and when one takes that as the keynote of the Mandatory system, I think your Lordship will see that we are straying down a very far path when we are postponing self-government in Palestine until such time as the population is flooded with an alien race."

The Arabs were disappointed and betrayed with the breaking of British promises, Sykes-Picot Agreement: 1916. Lawrence expressed his shame at dealing with the Arabs under false pretenses and returned all the medals and decorations he was awarded. His famous book , Seven Pillars of Wisdom, A Triumph , is a must read.

Lawrence of Arabia

The country became a British Mandate until 1948.

The British made their best endeavors to facilitate the achievement of the object. For the British Palestine was a strategic point on the land and sea routes to India (The Crown Jewel at that time) and, above all, as the terminus at the Mediterranean Sea of pipelines from rich oil-bearing regions of the Middle East. The establishment of a Zionist Jewish State under the British protection would give Britain their coveted prize and apparently implementing the Allied slogan of "Self determination of small nations". In 1922 "The Declaration" was embodied in the League of Nations Mandate for Palestine.

The Palestinians rejected British right to promise their country to a third party.

The British allowed Jewish immigration to Palestine from all over the world. The Jews (Sephardim and Mezrahim Jews) in Palestine before the British Mandate formed 5 % of the population of Palestine and lived harmoniously with the Arabs before the appearance of The Zionist Organization. And 95 % were Arabs living there for thousands of years.

Before the 20th century, most Jews in Palestine belonged to old Yishuv, or community, that had settled more for religious than for political reasons. There was little if any conflict between them and the Arab population. It should be remembered that for 1400 years, while European Jews saw pogroms, the Inquisition and the Holocaust, Jews were not persecuted in Muslim countries and, indeed, for long periods in Spain and elsewhere, were partners in a marvelous Muslim-Jewish symbiosis. Tensions began after the first Zionist settlers arrived in the 1880's...when [they] purchased land from absentee Arab owners, leading to dispossession of the peasants who had cultivated it.

Jews United Against Zionism:
"We seek the return of all Palestinian refugees to their rightful land.
We seek to live in the land of Palestine as anti Zionist Jews. To reside as loyal and peaceful Palestinian citizens, in peace and harmony with our Muslim Brethren. Just as our ancestors lived in Palestine for centuries before the usurpations of this tragic century."

"The indigenous Jews of Palestine also reacted negatively to Zionism. They did not see the need for a Jewish state in Palestine and did not want to exacerbate relations with the Arabs"....John Quigley: "Palestine and Israel: A Challenge to Justice."

The modern state of Israel is NOT comprised of the descendants of Abraham; in fact, they are primarily descendants of the Khazars whose ancestors are thought to be of Asian or Turkish origin. The majority of immigrants came from Central and East Europe and USSR (Ashkenazi Jews) - click to read about - and after World War II from all over the world. The forefathers of the new immigrants were not of Semitic origin and never existed on the Palestinian Land and therefore have no claim for Palestine (The Promised Land !). The term anti-Semitism makes no sense at all, for the Arabs are also Semites, so should hardly be accused of anti-Semitism. What the Palestinians could not understand or accept was why their land had been chosen to deal with the age-old problem of anti-Jewish prejudice, discrimination, persecution, and extermination in the Holocaust in Europe, in the countries of Western, Central and Eastern Europe. What the Palestinians asked was, why are we being forced to pay the price for this persecution of Jews in Europe? The easy answer is because the Jewish national movement, Zionism, chose to establish its state in Palestine, and the European powers concurred in that wish.

Only Sephardic Jews can claim that they probably descend from the Old Testament Semitic Hebrews. And Sephardic Jews make up only a small minority and, more important, have a relatively low representation and influence within Jewish power structures, both in Israel and in the Diaspora.

The greater part of Jews in Israel, as well as in the United States, Europe and Argentina are of mostly of Ashkenazim origin.

Ashkenazim Jews' for the most part blond, light-eyed, white-skinned and often red-headed (those subscribing to M. de Gobineau's out-dated theories would call them true 'Aryans', no doubt) have little or nothing to do with the Hebrews and Israelites of the Bible. I.e., they have little or no 'Semitic' blood running through their veins, and thus little or no historical or ethnic justification to claim as their own, the Holy Land of Palestine.

Israel's claims to be a democracy are hollow hypocrisy. Modern Israel is a pilot project for the New Order to be imposed on the world. It is a paradise for the rich and a total misery for lesser folk, including native Arab Muslims and Christians and even many Jews who do not belong to the Ashkenazim elite, but to 'inferior/ orders of Sephardic, Ethiopian, and Russian Jews.

Truths & Myths

Britain's high commissioner for Palestine, John Chancellor, recommended total suspension of Jewish immigration and land purchase to protect Arab agriculture. He said: "all cultivable land was occupied; that no cultivable land now in possession of the indigenous population could be sold to Jews without creating a class of landless Arab cultivators..." The colonial office rejected the recommendation.

The distortion of the intent and meaning of the Balfour Declaration caused the British to issue its "White Paper" in 1939. It stated emphatically and unequivocally: "His Majesty's Government believe that the framers of the Mandate in which the Balfour Declaration was embodied could not have intended that Palestine should be converted into a Jewish state against the will of the Arab population of the country. That Palestine was not to be converted into a Jewish state might be held to be implied in the passage from the Command Paper of 1922, which reads as follows..."

Acknowledging that the 1922 Whie Paper had not removed Arab doubts about Britain's policy, the 1939 White Paper then said:

"His Majesty's Government therefore now declare unequivocally that it is not part of their policy that Palestine should become a Jewish state." The Zionists rejected the "White Paper".

The Jews were growing in number with the help of Britain. Large scale Jewish settlements began during the British Mandatory period and continued growing in number. The World Zionist Organization and the Jewish Agency for Palestine raised funds abroad and recruited Jewish immigration through the help and support from the Western Governments. The prospect of a Jewish state, therefore, posed a mortal threat to the Palestinians, a prospect of ethnic subjugation and very likely of what is now called ethnic cleansing. As a result Arab opposition to British rule and to Zionism grew. Arab uprising culminated in a general revolt (1936 - 39) and was suppressed by British troops on the eve of World War II.

In 1942 the Zionists began an all-out terrorist campaign intended to drive the British out of Palestine. The Terrorist campaign succeeded and caused the British to surrender its "League of Nations Mandate" over Palestine to the United Nations.

During World War II illegal Jewish immigration increased and the Zionist movements started revolting against the British Mandate to take over all Palestine. In 1947 Britain decided to leave Palestine and called on the UN to make recommendations. The UN in Nov. 29, 1947 adopted a plan calling for partition of Palestine into Arab and Jewish states "Partition Plan".

The plan suggested two separate independent sovereign states, one Jewish with a population of 450,000 and allotted 55 percent of the land and a Palestinian state, with a population of 1,300,000 allotted 45 percent of the land. The plan was more than fair to the Jews then residing in Palestine but very unfair to the Arab Palestinians, Christians and Muslims, then living there. The Jewish population was approximately one-third of the total of inhabitants, and the land then owned by Jews comprised about 6 percent of the total land area. Yet the Partition Plan awarded about 55 percent of the territory to the prospective Jewish state. Thus it is not surprising that the Arabs rejected the plan, and when Israel declared its independence in 1948 they invaded Palestine with military forces and tried to overturn the result.The partition plan was rejected by the Arabs and there was full scale civil war. The UN sent in a mediator, Count Folke Bernadotte, who in turn was assassinated by Jewish terrorists.

The mastermind, the one who tatgeted Bernadotte and sanctioned his murder, was Stern Gang's director of operations, Yitzhak Shamir, who, when he emerged from the shadows many years later, would become Begin's foreign minister and then his successor as prime minister.

Bernadotte's insistence that Israel had to allow the Palestinian refugees to return to their homes did not die with him. It was enshrined in another resolution of the UN General Assembly-number 194 of 11 adecember 1948. It was to become famous on account of Israel's contempt for it:

"The General Assembly of the United Nations" Resolves that the refugees wishing to return to their homes and live in peace with their neighbours should be permitted to do so at the earliest practicable date, and that compensation should be paid for the property of those choosing not to return and for loss of, or damage to property which, under principles of international law or in equity, should be made good by the Governments or authorities responsible."

For a particular purpose Israel said it would accept its obligations as set down in UN resolutions, including 194; but, as events were to prove, it had absolutely no intention of doing so.

The Zionist pressure on the White House and the United Nations is revealed in President Truman's Memoirs:

"The facts were that not only were there pressure movements around the United Nations unlike anything that had been there before, but the White House too was subjected to a constant barrage. I do not think I ever had as much pressure and propaganda aimed at the White House as I had in this instance. The pressure of a few of the extreme Zionist leaders - actuated by political motives and engaging in political threats - disturbed and annoyed me. Some were even suggesting that we pressure sovereign nations into favourable votes in the General Assembly. I have never approved of the practice of the strong imposing their will on the weak whether among men or among nations."

The way in which Jews built their power base in the American financial and then cultural and political spheres has been well documented by various American Historians. It is a process extending over decades since the late 19th century which includes the foundation of the Federal Reserve Board by agents of the great Rothschild and Warburg European dynasties (Schiff, Kuhn, Loeb etc...), the consolidation of the Hollywood industry under Jewish-led studios etc...

"Most of the Zionist Movement accepted the partition resolution, convinced that the crucial issue was to establish a firm foundation for Jewish Sovereignty. In closed meetings, David Ben-Gurion never concealed his intention to expand at the first opportunity, the territory given to the Jews. That is why Israel's Declaration of Independence did not define the state's borders and Isreal has not defined its borders to this day.

The Arab World did not accept the Partition Plan and regarded it as a vile attempt by the United Nations, which at the time was essentially a club of Western and Communist Nations, to divide a country that did not belong to it. Handling over more than half of the country to the Jewish minority made it all the more unforgivable in their eyes."

Britain, having decided to hand over the Palestine Problem to the UN withdrew allowing only the Jews to their left behind army camps and weapons. Jewish guerrillas like Argon Zvai Leumi commanded by Menahim Begin (later Prime Minister) began a wave of terror and were responsible for massacres like Deir Yasin (a peaceful Palestinian Arab village) where all men, women and children were mercilessly and ruthlessly massacred. The victims had no arms to defend themselves. Following this, Menahim Begin sent out an 'Order of the Day' to his band of terrorists: "Accept my congratulations on this splendid act of conquest.....As of Deir Yasin, so everywhere we will attack and smite the enemy, God, God, thou has chosen us for conquest." This and the following massacres drove fear and panic into the Arab population, and led to the flight of unarmed civilians from their homes all over the country. This operation was in line with dozens of attacks carried out at that time by the Haganah and Palmach, in the course of which houses full of elderly people, women and children were blown up. Waves of thousands of refugees (Palestinian Exodus) fled to the neighboring countries.

The Palestinians were unable to defeat the organized and well armed Jewish attacks. Neighboring Arab Armies came in for help but their advance was halted by the armistice set by the UN. The Israeli "War of Independence!" in 1948-49 resulted in the expansion of the Jewish state from 55 percent of Palestine to 78 percent.

The Israeli Zionists carried out one of history's great acts of ethnic cleansing: the expulsion of some 750,000 Palestinians, or 80 per cent the native population of Palestine, from the borders of the newly established Jewish state.

In May 1948 the State of Israel was established. Few minutes later the United States and the USSR recognized the newly established State of Israel and very soon was recognized by the UN.

The USA supported the invasion and occupation of Palestine since May 14, 1948 by Zionists whose ancestors from the beginning of time had never set foot in Palestine; who spent millions of dollars broadcasting to the world their Big Lie that their illegal invasion of Palestine was "the repatriation of God's chosen people to their promised land."

Analogy:

American Indians ethnic cleansing, from an estimated 12 million in 1500 to barely 237,000 in 1900: The Americans crushed Native-American beliefs and practices. These acts were justified by the theory of Manifest Destiny, which stated that European descendants acting for the U.S. government had a God-given right to take land from the Native Americans.

Israel's Law Of Return

The Right To Automatically Acquire Citizenship

The Law of Return granted the ‘right’ of ‘return’ to Jews who had never lived in Palestine while denying the right of return to Palestinians who had lived there for generations. Some families could trace their origins in Palestine back to the Islamic conquest of the 7th century.

Quotation from
"The Case Against Israel"
By
Michael Neumann
(a Jew of German origin)
"There is a big difference between a minority wanting to be a people and actually being one. Most of these differences have increased rather than diminished with the evolution of Israel. That most North American Jews are fervent supporters of Israel does not trump the fact that Jews are, for the most part, members of other peoples: American Jews are Americans; Mexican Jews are Mexicans, and so on. They have rights of citizenship in their respective countries; they speak the language of those countries (most don't speak Hebrew or Yiddish); they are increasingly secular and, therefore, lack whatever bond religion might impart. They have no collective institutions, either political or cultural. They have no leaders. The rise of Israel has created not a Jewish people, but an ethnically diverse Israeli people, of whom 20 percent are non-Jewish. So, perhaps Zionists should not be too upset if one does not accept a politically viable right of the self-determination of peoples."

Another quotation from the same book:

"Zionists came thousands of miles (to Palestine), not merely to settle or immigrate, but to erect a Jewish state. The leaders literally conspired to dispossess or dominate the Palestinians. Though many Zionists ventured into Palestine with the ignorance and swagger of colonial adventures, and others arrived dazzled by Utopian visions, all were engaged in a project that represented a moral threat to the indigenous inhabitants, who had done them no harm. Though some of those who constituted this threat were innocents, no adult Zionist can be said to have posed an innocent threat. They should have known better. They had a responsibility to know better. Zionism was no worse than many ethnic nationalisms nurtured by nineteenth-century European culture. But they were, all of them, a bad and dangerous idea. It was the implementation of this idea that made bloodshed in Palestine. That blood is on the Zionist's hands."

A comment by Jean Bricmont, professor of theoretical physics at the Universite Catholique de Louvin, Belgium, about the above book:

"A lot has been written on the Israeli-Palestine conflict-lots of facts and even more fictions. But what is often missing, and what this book provides, is a lucid and definitive moral analysis of the rights and the wrongs in the conflict. From Neumann's analysis, it emerges that on fundamental issues, Israel is in the wrong, and the Palestinians in the right."

I quote Richard H. Curtiss on May/June 1991, page 17:" Why must the US deal with seemingly intractable dispute. The answer, unfortunately is that the US is largely responsible for the problem because of two American decisions in 1947 and 1948. Now, only the US can break the impasse, by forcing its Israeli client state to give back all or most of the land the UN allotted to Muslim and Christian inhabitants when it partitioned Palestine in 1947.

In 1967 war the rest of Palestine was occupied by Israel until this moment, resulting in masses of refugees. The refugees (1948 and 1967) are still living in camps in miserable conditions. The Palestinian Refugees have been a United Nations responsibility for over 50 years. Israel would not allow them to go back to their homes and lands in Palestine.

A quote from an article by Noam Chomsky in the Guardian, May 11, 2002:

"The Palestinians have long suffered torture, terror, destruction of property, displacement and settlement, and takeover of basic resources, crucially water. These policies have relied on decisive US support and European acquiescence."

Qoute from Revilo P. Oliver's book "The Jewish Strategy:

"...so far as we can tell, a distinct change has taken place in the Jews' activity in this century and at approximately the time of the 'Protocols.' Before this, the aliens seem to have been content to exploit the Aryans and, in biological terms, feed on them; the present objective is obviously extermination of our species through mongrelization and massacres, so that it would seem that the organization and domination of the Jewish colonies by the Zionists produced a change in purpose that must, to a large extent at least, have been consciously determined and planned."

A quote from Rabbi Elmer Berger's "Prophecy, Zionism and the state of Israel":

"The present State of Israel has no right whatsoever to claim the accomplishment of the divine project for a Messianic age.... It is pure demagogy of soil and blood."

Micah spells it out clearly :

"Hear, I pray you, O heads of Jacob, and ye princes of the house of Israel that abhor judgment and pervert all equity. They build up Zion with blood, and Jerusalem with inequity..."

"The Palestinian uprising or intifada and the Israeli campaign to suppress it have caused considerable anguish for many Jews around the world. A large number of Jews have even begun to reassess their support for Israel and critically analyze the ideology of Zionism which legitimates the Jewish state. One example of this phenomenon is a statement that appeared in The Nation on February 3, 1988. It was endorsed by 18 prominent American Jews. The advertisement called upon American Jews to "dissociate from Israel." It expressed the concern that "the close identification in the public mind between Israel and Jews -- an equation vigorously fostered by both the Zionist movement and the American Jewish lobby, which has come under its control -- threatens to stigmatize Jews everywhere." The ad called for a two-state solution and for negotiations with the Palestine Liberation Organization. The statement also discussed past discrimination against the Jews and the horrors of the Nazi Holocaust adding: How tragic that in our own time the very state established by Jews in the aftermath of this evil has become a place where racialism, religious discrimination, militarism and injustice prevail; and that Israel itself has become a pariah state within the world community. Events taking place today are all too reminiscent of the pogroms from which our own forefathers fled two and three generations ago -- but this time those in authority are Jews and the victims are Muslims and Christian Palestinians." ...End of quote.

In Nazi Germany they had an evil mantra called �the master race�, and here in Israel they have an equally diabolical one called the �chosen people�.

In Nazi Germany, they had the Untermensch concept, and here in Israel they have the �goyim� whose rights and lives are expendable.

"In Nazi Germany they had the idea of �Lebensraum�, and Israel they argue that �Jews have got to live somewhere,� a euphemism for stealing Palestinian land and expelling these helpless and powerless people from their ancestral homeland, all for the purpose of fulfilling Jewish nationalism, a nationalism that has more in common with Hitler�s Mein Kampf than with the Torah of Moses." Read the article "Sarkozy: The Extraordinary Zionist"

During the Six Day War between Israel and the Arab States, the American intelligence ship USS Liberty was attacked for 75 minutes in international waters by Israeli aircraft and motor torpedo boats. Thirty-four men died and 171 were wounded. On August 9, 2001, the History Channel presented the long awaited program entitled "Cover Up: Attack on the U.S.S. Liberty."

The late George Ball, under secretary of state under President John Kennedy and Lyndon Johnson and long-time Bilderberg luminary, expressed outrage over the Israeli attack, James Akins, former ambassador to Saudi Arabia, said. Ball wrote of the attack: "Israel knew it could get away with anything." If Israel had succeeded in sinking the ship with all aboard, the attack would have been blamed on Egypt, Ball said. He referred to Israel "murdering Americans." Getting an investigation is difficult, Akins said, because "Congress is Israeli-occupied territory."

I quote Charley Reese:

"Self-determination is a must for Albanians in Kosovo - not for Palestinians.

Refugees have a right to return or receive compensation - but not Palestinian refugees.

Countries must obey U.N. Security Council resolutions - but not Israel, which sits in defiance of more than 60.

Countries that routinely violate human rights deserve sanctions - except Israel.

Countries that assassinate political enemies are state sponsors of terrorism - but not Israel.

Countries must not use American-donated weapons for offensive purposes - except for Israel.

People who commit war crimes must be put on trial - unless they are Israelis."

I quote Rabbi David Weiss:

"Our prayer to God is that the Israeli state be speedily and peacefully dismantled without any further shedding of Jewish or Palestinian blood and that we be worthy of seeing the full revelation of God's glory in the world. Amen".

Zionism and Judaism, Feb., 2002

Stephen B.L. Penrose, President of the American University of Beirut 1948- 54, some fifty years ago wrote, in the Daily Star, regretfully of US policies that betrayed a national goodwill in the Arab World toward American principles of justice, and the deep Arab distrust of US intentions in the region and an apprehension well-founded on the ever growing chasm between American words and deeds.
