And What About the Jews?
The Israelis are very much concerned with their security,
the Arab countries demand the return of occupied lands,
the Palestinians assert their right for self-determination,
but what about the needs and rights of the Jews?
Those Jews in the Holy Land in particular
who have always rejected the concept of a Zionist state
who have protested the use of the sacred name of ISRAEL by that state
whose ancestors lived peacefully there before the intrusion of Zionism
who in accordance with a rabbinical ban have refused to take part in any Israeli election
who in accordance with a rabbinical ban have stopped visits to the Western Wall since the Zionist occupation of the Holy City
who refused to accept Israeli citizenship
who have declared to the British mandatory regime, to the League of Nations and to the United Nations that they cannot be represented by Zionists or a Zionist government
who have in fact been "stateless persons" for a generation
who have been consistently ignored by the United Nations
This year marks the 50th anniversary of the murder by Zionist assassins of the great and dedicated Jewish statesman Professor Jacob I. De Haan zt"l in front of the Shaare Zedek hospital in Jerusalem where he had just attended the daily prayer services. Despite frequent threats he had courageously continued to lead in the fight against Zionism.
The Jews of Iraq
By Naeim Giladi
And I began to find out about the barbaric methods used to rid the fledgling state of as many Palestinians as possible. The world recoils today at the thought of bacteriological warfare, but Israel was probably the first to actually use it in the Middle East. In the 1948 war, Jewish forces would empty Arab villages of their populations, often by threats, sometimes by just gunning down a half-dozen unarmed Arabs as examples to the rest. To make sure the Arabs couldn't return to make a fresh life for themselves in these villages, the Israelis put typhus and dysentery bacteria into the water wells.
Uri Mileshtin, an official historian for the Israeli Defense Force, has written and spoken about the use of bacteriological agents. According to Mileshtin, Moshe Dayan, a division commander at the time, gave orders in 1948 to remove Arabs from their villages, bulldoze their homes, and render water wells unusable with typhus and dysentery bacteria.
Acre was so situated that it could practically defend itself with one big gun, so the Haganah put bacteria into the spring that fed the town. The spring was called Capri and it ran from the north near a kibbutz. The Haganah put typhus bacteria into the water going to Acre, the people got sick, and the Jewish forces occupied Acre. This worked so well that they sent a Haganah division dressed as Arabs into Gaza, where there were Egyptian forces, and the Egyptians caught them putting two cans of bacteria, typhus and dysentery, into the water supply in wanton disregard of the civilian population. "In war, there is no sentiment," one of the captured Haganah men was quoted as saying.
Six months later the exact date was March 19, 1950 a bomb went off at the American
Cultural Center and Library in Baghdad, causing property damage and injuring a number of
people. The center was a favorite meeting place for young Jews.
On January 14, 1951, at 7 p.m., a grenade was thrown at a group of Jews outside the
Masouda Shem-Tov Synagogue. The explosive struck a high-voltage cable, electrocuting three
Jews, one a young boy, Itzhak Elmacher, and wounding over 30 others. Following the attack,
the exodus of Jews jumped to between 600-700 per day.
Zionist propagandists still maintain that the bombs in Iraq were set off by anti-Jewish
Iraqis who wanted Jews out of their country. The terrible truth is that the grenades that
killed and maimed Iraqi Jews and damaged their property were thrown by Zionist Jews.
Among the most important documents in my book, I believe, are copies of two leaflets
published by the Zionist underground calling on Jews to leave Iraq. One is dated March 16,
1950, the other April 8, 1950.
The difference between these two is critical. Both indicate the date of publication,
but only the April 8th leaflet notes the time of day: 4 p.m. Why the time of day? Such a
specification was unprecedented. Even the investigating judge, Salaman El-Beit, found it
suspicious. Did the 4 p.m. writers want an alibi for a bombing they knew would occur five
hours later? If so, how did they know about the bombing? The judge concluded they knew
because a connection existed between the Zionist underground and the bomb throwers.
This, too, was the conclusion of Wilbur Crane Eveland, a former senior officer in the
Central Intelligence Agency (CIA), whom I had the opportunity to meet in New York in 1988.
In his book, Ropes of Sand, whose publication the CIA opposed, Eveland writes:
Eveland doesn't detail the evidence linking the Zionists to the attacks, but in my book
I do. In 1955, for example, I organized in Israel a panel of Jewish attorneys of Iraqi
origin to handle claims of Iraqi Jews who still had property in Iraq. One well known
attorney, who asked that I not give his name, confided in me that the laboratory tests in
Iraq had confirmed that the anti-American leaflets found at the American Cultural Center
bombing were typed on the same typewriter and duplicated on the same stenciling machine as
the leaflets distributed by the Zionist movement just before the April 8th bombing.
Tests also showed that the type of explosive used in the Beit-Lawi attack matched
traces of explosives found in the suitcase of an Iraqi Jew by the name of Yosef Basri.
Basri, a lawyer, together with Shalom Salih, a shoemaker, would be put on trial for the
attacks in December 1951 and executed the following month. Both men were members of
Hashura, the military arm of the Zionist underground. Salih ultimately confessed that he,
Basri and a third man, Yosef Habaza, carried out the attacks.
By the time of the executions in January 1952, all but 6,000 of an estimated 125,000
Iraqi Jews had fled to Israel. Moreover, the pro-British, pro-Zionist puppet el-Said saw
to it that all of their possessions were frozen, including their cash assets. (There were
ways of getting Iraqi dinars out, but when the immigrants went to exchange them in Israel
they found that the Israeli government kept 50 percent of the value.) Even those Iraqi
Jews who had not registered to emigrate, but who happened to be abroad, faced loss of
their nationality if they didn't return within a specified time. An ancient, cultured,
prosperous community had been uprooted and its people transplanted to a land dominated by
East European Jews, whose culture was not only foreign but entirely hateful to them.
Zionist Leaders. From the start they knew that in order to establish a Jewish state they had to expel the indigenous Palestinian population to the neighboring Islamic states and import Jews from these same states. Theodor Herzl, the architect of Zionism, thought it could be done by social engineering. In his diary entry for 12 June 1885, he wrote that Zionist settlers would have to "spirit the penniless population across the border by procuring employment for it in the transit countries, while denying it any employment in our own country." Vladimir Jabotinsky, Prime Minister Netanyahu's ideological progenitor, frankly admitted that such a transfer of populations could only be brought about by force.
David Ben Gurion, Israel's first prime minister, told a Zionist Conference in 1937 that
any proposed Jewish state would have to "transfer Arab populations out of the area,
if possible of their own free will, if not by coercion." After 750,000 Palestinians
were uprooted and their lands confiscated in 1948-49, Ben Gurion had to look to the
Islamic countries for Jews who could fill the resultant cheap labor market. "Emissaries" were smuggled into these countries to "convince" Jews to leave either by trickery or fear.
In the case of Iraq, both methods were used: uneducated Jews were told of a Messianic
Israel in which the blind see, the lame walk, and onions grow as big as melons; educated
Jews had bombs thrown at them.
A few years after the bombings, in the early 1950s, a book was published in Iraq, in
Arabic, titled Venom of the Zionist Viper. The author was one of the Iraqi investigators
of the 1950-51 bombings and, in his book, he implicates the Israelis, specifically one of
the emissaries sent by Israel, Mordechai Ben-Porat. As soon as the book came out, all
copies just disappeared, even from libraries. The word was that agents of the Israeli
Mossad, working through the U.S. Embassy, bought up all the books and destroyed them. I
tried on three different occasions to have one sent to me in Israel, but each time Israeli
censors in the post office intercepted it.
After WW II the international chessboard pitted communists against capitalists. In many
countries, including the United States and Iraq, Jews represented a large part of the
Communist party. In Iraq, hundreds of Jews of the working intelligentsia occupied key
positions in the hierarchy of the Communist and Socialist parties. To keep their client
countries in the capitalist camp, Britain had to make sure these governments had
pro-British leaders. And if, as in Iraq, these leaders were overthrown, then an
anti-Jewish riot or two could prove a useful pretext to invade the capital and reinstate
the "right" leaders.
Moreover, if the possibility existed of removing the communist influence from Iraq by
transferring the whole Jewish community to Israel, well then, why not? Particularly if the
leaders of Israel and Iraq conspired in the deed.
In September 1949, Israel sent the spy Mordechai Ben-Porat, the one mentioned in Venom
of the Zionist Viper, to Iraq. One of the first things Ben-Porat did was to approach
el-Said and promise him financial incentives to have a law enacted that would lift the
citizenship of Iraqi Jews.
Soon after, Zionist and Iraqi representatives began formulating a rough draft of the
bill, according to the model dictated by Israel through its agents in Baghdad. The bill
was passed by the Iraqi parliament in March 1950. It empowered the government to issue
one-time exit visas to Jews wishing to leave the country. In March, the bombings began.
Sixteen years later, the Israeli magazine Haolam Hazeh, published by Uri Avnery, then a
Knesset member, accused Ben-Porat of the Baghdad bombings. Ben-Porat, who would become a
Knesset member himself, denied the charge, but never sued the magazine for libel. And
Iraqi Jews in Israel still call him Morad Abu al-Knabel, Mordechai of the Bombs.
As I said, all this went well beyond the comprehension of a teenager. I knew Jews were
being killed and an organization existed that could lead us to the Promised Land. So I
helped in the exodus to Israel. Later, on occasions, I would bump into some of these Iraqi
Jews in Israel. Not infrequently they'd express the sentiment that they could kill me for
what I had done.
Alexis de Tocqueville once observed that it is easier for the world to accept a simple
lie than a complex truth. Certainly it has been easier for the world to accept the Zionist
lie that Jews were evicted from Muslim lands because of anti-Semitism, and that Israelis,
never the Arabs, were the pursuers of peace. The truth is far more discerning: bigger
players on the world stage were pulling the strings.
These players, I believe, should be held accountable for their crimes, particularly
when they willfully terrorized, dispossessed and killed innocent people on the altar of
some ideological imperative.
I believe, too, that the descendants of these leaders have a moral responsibility to
compensate the victims and their descendants, and to do so not just with reparations, but
by setting the historical record straight. That is why I established a panel of inquiry in Israel to seek reparations for Iraqi Jews who had been forced to leave behind their property and possessions in Iraq. That is why I joined the Black Panthers in confronting the Israeli government with the grievances of the
Jews in Israel who came from Islamic lands. And that is why I have written my book and
this article: to set the historical record straight.
We Jews from Islamic lands did not leave our ancestral homes because of any natural
enmity between Jews and Muslims. And we Arabs I say Arab because that is the language my
wife and I still speak at home we Arabs on numerous occasions have sought peace with the
State of the Jews. And finally, as a U.S. citizen and taxpayer, let me say that we
Americans need to stop supporting racial discrimination in Israel and the cruel
expropriation of lands in the West Bank, Gaza, South Lebanon and the Golan Heights.
Ten Questions to the Zionists
By Rabbi Michael Ber Weissmandel ZT"L
The Bankruptcy of Zionism
We are talking about the failure of an idea and an ideology ... because financially and politically the Zionists are still doing fine.
When the first Zionists entered the Holy Land, they ridiculed the poor, pious Jews then living there as Chaluka-Juden (welfare Jews) because they were supported in part by donations from abroad. The Zionists were going to be different: they would work hard, become self-reliant and proudly independent.
Now, several generations later, the Zionist establishment has become the largest welfare client of the United States, to the tune of thousands of millions of dollars. The request of the Zionist lobby command top priority on Capitol Hill and are almost automatically granted. New York State gives subsidies of thousands of dollars per student to a Tel Aviv medical school. New York State savings banks have received special permission to buy Zionist state bonds. Even New York City not long ago found millions to invest in Zionist state bonds. Politically and financially, therefore, Zionist power is still able to sway leading politicians at every level.
ALIYA IN REVERSE
Aside from that, however, Zionism is failing. The first duty of a Zionist is "aliya," emigration to the Zionist state. This "aliya" has almost come to a standstill. In fact it has been reversed. Instead of American Jews settling in the Zionist state, Israelis hundreds of thousands of them have moved to the United States. And even the Jewish emigrants from the Soviet Union, who can leave only with an Israeli visa, are in ever increasing measure headed for western countries as soon as the Soviet border is behind them. The Zionists tried to force them to go to the Zionist state but to no avail. And the current all-out efforts by the Zionists to induce Jewish mass emigration from the U.S.A. is similarly bound to fail.
The Role of Zionism in the Holocaust
It was a man possessing outstanding Judaic genius, and a level of uncontested holiness who enunciated the Jewish stance regarding Zionism. This charismatic individual, the Rebbe of Satmar, Grand Rabbi Joel Teitelbaum, did not mince any words. Straight to the point he called Zionism "the work of Satan," "a sacrilege" and "a blasphemy." He forbade any participation with anything even remotely associated with Zionism and said that Zionism was bound to call the wrath of G-d upon His people. He maintained this stance with unwavering bravery from the onset of Zionism whilst he was still in Hungary up until his death in New York where he lead a congregation numbering in the hundreds of thousands. Grand Rabbi Teitelbaum, scion to a legacy of holy mystics and Hassidic Masters unfortunately had his prediction fulfilled. We lost more than six million of our brothers, sisters, sons and daughters in a very horrible manner. This, more than six million holy people had to experience as punishment for the Zionist stupidity. The Holocaust, he wept, was a direct result of Zionism, a punishment from G-d.
IT IS COMMON KNOWLEDGE THAT ALL THE SAGES AND SAINTS IN EUROPE AT THE TIME OF HITLER'S RISE DECLARED THAT HE WAS A MESSENGER OF DIVINE WRATH, SENT TO CHASTEN THE JEWS BECAUSE OF THE BITTER APOSTASY OF ZIONISM AGAINST THE BELIEF IN THE EVENTUAL MESSIANIC REDEMPTION.
But it doesn't end there. It wasn't enough for the Zionist leaders to have aroused the wrath of G-d. They made a point of displaying abysmal contempt for their Jewish brothers and sisters by actively participating in their extermination. Just the idea alone of Zionism, which the rabbis had informed them would cause havoc, was not enough for them. They made an effort to pour fuel on an already burning flame. They had to incite the Angel of Death, Adolf Hitler. They took the liberty of telling the world that they represented World Jewry. Who appointed these individuals as leaders of the Jewish People?? It is no secret that these so-called "leaders" were ignoramuses when it came to Judaism. Atheists and racists too. These are the "statesmen" who organized the irresponsible boycott against Germany in 1933. This boycott hurt Germany like a fly attacking an elephant but it brought calamity upon the Jews of Europe. At a time when America and England were at peace with the mad-dog Hitler, the Zionist "statesmen" forsook the only plausible method of political amenability; and with their boycott incensed the leader of Germany to a frenzy. Genocide began, but these people, if they can really be classified as members of the human race, sat back.
President Roosevelt convened the Evian conference July 6-15 1938, to deal with the Jewish refugee problem. The Jewish Agency delegation headed by Golda Meir (Meirson) ignored a German offer to allow Jews to emigrate to other countries for $250 a head, and the Zionists made no effort to influence the United States and the 32 other countries attending the conference to allow immigration of German and Austrian Jews. [The Wall Street Journal, 02Dec76]
On Feb 1, 1940 Henry Montor executive vice-President of the United Jewish Appeal refused to intervene for a shipload of Jewish refugees stranded on the Danube river, stating that "Palestine cannot be flooded with ... old people or with undesirables." [The Wall Street Journal, 02Dec76]
It is an historical fact that in 1941 and again in 1942, the German Gestapo offered all European Jews transit to Spain, if they would relinquish all their property in Germany and Occupied France; on condition that:
a) none of the deportees travel from Spain to Palestine; and
b) all the deportees be transported from Spain to the USA or British colonies, and there to remain; with entry visas to be arranged by the Jews living there; and
c) $1000.00 ransom for each family to be furnished by the Agency, payable upon the arrival of the family at the Spanish border at the rate of 1000 families daily.
The Zionist leaders in Switzerland and Turkey received this offer with the clear understanding that the exclusion of Palestine as a destination for the deportees was based on an agreement between the Gestapo and the Mufti.
The answer of the Zionist leaders was negative, with the following comments:
a) ONLY Palestine would be considered as a destination for the deportees.
b) The European Jews must accede to suffering and death greater in measure than the other nations, in order that the victorious allies agree to a "Jewish State" at the end of the war.
c) No ransom will be paid
This response to the Gestapo's offer was made with the full knowledge that the alternative to this offer was the gas chamber.
These treacherous Zionist leaders betrayed their own flesh and blood. Zionism was never an option for Jewish salvation. Quite the opposite, it was a formula for human beings to be used as pawns for the power trip of several desperadoes. A perfidy! A betrayal beyond description!
In 1944, at the time of the Hungarian deportations, a similar offer was made, whereby all Hungarian Jewry could be saved. The same Zionist hierarchy again refused this offer (after the gas chambers had already taken a toll of millions).
The British government granted visas to 300 rabbis and their families to the Colony of Mauritius, with passage for the evacuees through Turkey. The "Jewish Agency" leaders sabotaged this plan with the observation that the plan was disloyal to Palestine, and the 300 rabbis and their families should be gassed.
On December 17, 1942 both houses of the British Parliament declared its readiness to find temporary refuge for endangered persons. The British Parliament proposed to evacuate 500,000 Jews from Europe, and resettle them in British colonies, as a part of diplomatic negotiations with Germany. This motion received within two weeks a total of 277 Parliamentary signatures. On Jan. 27, when the next steps were being pursued by over 100 M.P.'s and Lords, a spokesman for the Zionists announced that the Jews would oppose the motion because Palestine was omitted. [The Wall Street Journal, 02Dec76]
On Feb. 16, 1943 Roumania offered 70,000 Jewish refugees of the Trans-Dniestria to leave at the cost of $50 each. This was publicized in the New York papers. Yitzhak Greenbaum, Chairman of the Rescue Committee of the Jewish Agency, addressing the Zionist Executive Council in Tel Aviv Feb. 18 1943 said, "when they asked me, "couldn't you give money out of the United Jewish Appeal funds for the rescue of Jews in Europe, I said NO! and I say again, NO! ... one should resist this wave which pushes the Zionist activities to secondary importance." On Feb. 24, 1943 Stephen Wise, President of the American Jewish Congress and leader of the American Zionists issued a public refusal to this offer and declared no collection of funds would seem justified. In 1944, the Emergency Committee to Save the Jewish People called upon the American government to establish a War Refugee Board. Stephen Wise testifying before a special committee of Congress objected to this proposal. [The Wall Street Journal, 02Dec76]
During the course of the negotiations mentioned above, Chaim Weizman, the first "Jewish statesman" stated: "The most valuable part of the Jewish nation is already in Palestine, and those Jews living outside Palestine are not too important." Weizman's cohort, Greenbaum, amplified this statement with the observation "One cow in Palestine is worth more than all the Jews in Europe."
And then, after the bitterest episode in Jewish history, these Zionist "statesmen" lured the broken refugees in the DP camps to remain in hunger and deprivation, and to refuse relocation to any place but Palestine; only for the purpose of building their State.
In 1947 Congressman William Stration sponsored a bill to immediately grant entry to the United States of 400,000 displaced persons. The bill was not passed after it was publicly denounced by the Zionist leadership. [The Wall Street Journal, 02Dec76]
These facts are read with consternation and unbearable shame. How can it be explained that at a time during the last phase of the war, when the Nazis were willing to barter Jews for money, partly because of their desires to establish contact with the Western powers which, they believed, were under Jewish influence, how was it possible one asks that the self-proclaimed "Jewish leaders" did not move heaven and earth to save the last remnant of their brothers?
On Feb. 23, 1956 the Hon. J. W. Pickersgill, Minister for Immigration was asked in the Canadian House of Commons "would he open the doors of Canada to Jewish refugees." He replied "the government has made no progress in that direction because the government of Israel ... does not wish us to do so." [The Wall Street Journal, 02Dec76]
In 1972, the Zionist leadership successfully opposed an effort in the United States Congress to allow 20,000-30,000 Russian refugees to enter the United States. Jewish relief organizations, Joint and HIAS, were being pressured to abandon these refugees in Vienna, Rome and other European cities. [The Wall Street Journal, 02Dec76]
The pattern is clear!!! Humanitarian rescue efforts are subverted to narrow Zionist interests.
There were many more shocking crimes committed by these abject degenerates known as "Jewish statesmen," we could list many more example, but for the time being let anyone produce a valid excuse for the above facts.
Zionist responsibility for the Holocaust is threefold.
1. The Holocaust was a punishment for disrespecting The Three Oaths (see Talmud, Tractate Kesubos p. 111a).
2. Zionist leaders openly withheld support, both financially and otherwise, to save their fellow brothers and sisters from a cruel death.
3. The leaders of the Zionist movement cooperated with Hitler and his cohorts on many occasions and in many ways.
Zionists Offer a Military Alliance with Hitler
It would be wishful thinking if it could be stated that the leaders of the Zionist movement sat back and ignored the plight of their dying brothers and sisters. Not only did they publicly refuse to assist in their rescue, but they actively participated with Hitler and the Nazi regime.
Early in 1935, a passenger ship bound for Haifa in Palestine left the German port of Bremerhaven. Its stern bore the Hebrew letter for its name, "Tel Aviv," while a swastika banner fluttered from the mast. And although the ship was Zionist owned, its captain was a National Socialist Party (Nazi) member. Many years later a traveler aboard the ship recalled this symbolic combination as a "metaphysical absurdity." Absurd or not, this is but one vignette from a little-known chapter of history: The wide ranging collaboration between Zionism and Hitler's Third Reich.
In early January 1941 a small but important Zionist organization submitted a formal proposal to German diplomats in Beirut for a military-political alliance with wartime Germany. The offer was made by the radical underground "Fighters for the Freedom of Israel," better known as the Lehi or Stern Gang. Its leader, Avraham Stern, had recently broken with the radical nationalist "National Military Organization" (Irgun Zvai Leumi - Etzel) over the group's attitude toward Britain, which had effectively banned further Jewish settlement of Palestine. Stern regarded Britain as the main enemy of Zionism.
This remarkable proposal "for the solution of the Jewish question in Europe and the active participation on the NMO [Lehi] in the war on the side of Germany" is worth quoting at some length:
On the basis of their similar ideologies about ethnicity and nationhood, National Socialists and Zionists worked together for what each group believed was in its own national interests.
This is just one example of the Zionist movement's collaboration with Hitler for the purpose of possibly receiving jurisdiction over a minute piece of earth, Palestine.
What the Rabbis said about Zionism in the Previous Generations
Rabbi Shlomo Zalman Eherenreich once said:
"The Zionists brought us to the Holocaust. It is well known that it was possible to redeem Jews from the Nazis with money, and save many hundreds of thousands of Jews in Hungary from the fire. THE ZIONIST LEADERS WHO NOW SIT IN GOVERNMENT PREVENTED IT!"
Why is World Jewry Opposed to the Zionist State
It is openly stated in the books written by the founders of Zionism that the means by which they planned to establish a state was by instigating anti-Semitism, and undermining the security of the Jews in all the lands of the world, until they would be forced to flee to their state. And thus they did. They intentionally infuriated the German people and fanned the flames of Nazi hatred, and then helped the Nazis, with trickery and deceit, to take whole Jewish communities off to the concentration camps, and the Zionists themselves admit this. (See books Perfidy, Min Ha Meitsor, etc.). The Zionists continue to practice this strategy today, they incite anti-Semitism and then they present themselves as the "saviors." Here are two replies given by leaders of the Zionists during World War II, when they were asked for money to help ransom Jews from the Nazis. Greenbaum said "One cow in Palestine is worth more than all the Jews in Poland." (G-d Forbid). Weitzman said, "The most important part of the Jewish people is already in the land (of Israel) and those who are left, are unimportant." (May we be spared).
