The Zionist-Nazi Collaboration

The Zionist-Nazi Collaboration

The fact that the initiation of the Zionist project had nothing to do with the Holocaust, as it developed more than a half century earlier, and the fact of the mostly indifference to the slaughter of Jews on the part of the founders of Israel, together with its collaboration with the Nazi Party, undermines Israel’s projected, and exploited, image as innocent victim.

 

by William James Martin

Both Nazism and Zionism arose in tandem from small insignificant social movements in the early part of the 20th century, arguing, with equal force, that Jews were an alien and indigestible mass living in the midst of an otherwise pure Aryan population. Both movements contributed to the more general acceptance of this argument in Europe, and particularly in Germany, as mid-century approached, and both have to be responsible for the consequences.

In 1896, journalist Theodore Herzl’s book, Der Judenstaat (The Jews’ State), Herzl expressed his understanding of inevitability, permanence, and omnipresence of anti-Semitism and argued that the only solution was a separate state for Jews.  Herzl stated, in his book:

The Jewish question exists wherever Jews live in perceptable numbers. Where it does not exist, it is carried by Jews in the course of their migrations. We naturally move to those places where we are not persecuted, and there our presence produces persecution. …1

In 1912, Chaim Weizman, Israel’s first president, and the Zionist advocate who had the most to do with lobbying the British for the Balfour Declaration of 1917, echoed this view, speaking to a Berlin audience:

… each country can absorb only a limited number of Jews, if she doesn’t want disorder in her stomach. Germany already has too many Jews.2

Reflecting in 1949 in his autobiography, Trial and Error, Weizmann wrote:

Whenever the quantity of Jews in any country reaches the saturation point, that country reacts against them …

Weizmann, the chemist, invoking a metaphor from the sciences, added:

… the determining factor in this matter is not the is solubility of Jews, but the solvent power of the country. …

This cannot be looked upon as anti-Semitism in the ordinary or vulger sense of that word;

it is a universal social and economic concomitant of Jewish immigration, and we cannot shake it off …3

Ben Frommer, an American Revisionist, stated in 1935:

No matter what country he inhabits … [it] is not of the [his] tribal origins. … Consequently, the Jew’s attempt at complete identity with his country sounds spurious; his patriotism despite his vociferousness [sounds] hollow even to himself; and therefore his demand for complete equality with those who are of the essence of the nation naturally creates friction. This explains the intolerance of the Germans, Austrians, Poles and the increasing tide of antagonism in most European countries … It is presumptuous on the part of a Jew to demand that he be treated as lovingly as say a Teuton in a Teutonic country or a Pole in a Polish country. He must jealously guard his life and liberty, but he must candidly recognize that he does not ‘belong‘. The liberal fiction of perfect equality is doomed because is was unnatural. [Italics mine]4

Indeed, in 1925, Jacob Klatzkin, the co-editor of the massive Encyclopedia Judaica, wrote:

If our people is deserving and willing to live its own national life, then it is an alien body that insists on its own distinctive identity, reducing the domain of their life. It is right therefore, that they should fight against us for their national integrity … Instead of establishing societies for defense against the anti-Semites, who want to reduce our rights, we should establish societies for defense against our friends who desire to defend our rights.5

The understanding of Herzl, as well as the Zionists, about the inevitability of anti-Semitism was possibly self-fulfilling, for rather than opposing anti-Semitism in the first half of the 20th century, the Zionists found common cause with Hitler, Eichmann, and the Nazis and used anti-Semitism and Nazism as a means of achieving their end which was the establishment of a Jewish state. The two reactionary movements shared the view that German Jews were living in that country as a ‘foreign race’ and that the racial divide was essential to maintain. The Zionists’ use of Nazism involved, among other things, the blocking of avenues of escape to other countries of Europe’s Jews and diverting them to Palestine, even as the death trains began to roll in Europe. The rise of Nazism and Hitler to power was never, or almost never, opposed by the Zionists prior to the establishment of Israel.

Thus, in an article by Siegfried Moses, which appeared in the Rundschau, the official newspaper of the German Zionist Federation, and later, its head, stated:

… it is true that the defense against anti-Semitism is not our main task, it does not concern us to the same extent and is not of the same importance for us as is the work for Palestine …6

In 1934, Stephen Wise, head of the American Jewish Congress said:

… I cannot be indifferent to the Galuth [the Jewish diaspora living outside of Palestine] … if I had to choose between Eretz Israel and its upbuilding and the defense of the Galuth, I would say that then the Galuth must perish.7

On October 2, 1937, two SS officers, Herbert Hagen and Adolf Eichmann, disembarked in Haifa and were met by the Gestapo’s agent in Palestine, Fritz Reichert, and later in the day, Fevel Polkes, a Haganah agent, who showed the Nazi officials Haifa from Mt Carmel and then visited a kibbutz. Some years later, when Eichmann was hiding in Argentina, he taped a story of his excursion to Palestine, stating:

I did see enough to be very impressed with the way the Jewish colonists were building up their land. … In the years that followed I often said to Jews with whom I had dealings that had I been a Jew, I would have been a fanatical Zionist.8

Eichmann had read Herzl’s book, Der Judenstaat, and also studied Hebrew.  In their trip report, the two SS officers paraphrased Polkes’s message to them:

The Zionist state must be established by all means and as soon as possible. … When the Jewish state is established according to the current proposals laid down in the Peel paper, and in line with England’s partial promises, then the borders may be pushed further outwards according to one wished.9

… in Jewish nationalist circles people were very pleased with the radical German policy, since the strength of the Jewish population in Palestine would be so far increased thereby that in the foreseeable future the Jews could reckon upon numerical superiority over the Arabs in Palestine.10

During his February trip to Berlin, Polkes proposed that the Haganah act as spies for the Nazi government and, as a sign of good faith, passed on intelligence information which was detrimental to their mutual enemies, the Communists.  History might have been very different had the Zionist component of Jewry opposed Nazism; there might never have been a Holocaust. And there might never have been a state of Israel, as some Zionists well understood.

Lenni Brenner puts it:

… of all of the active Jewish opponents of the boycott idea [of Nazi Germany], the most important was the world Zionists Organization (WZO). It not only bought German wares; it sold them, and even sought out new customers for Hitler and his industrialist backers.

The WZO saw Hitler’s victory in much the same way as its German affiliate, the ZVfD [the German Zionist Organization]: not primarily as a defeat for all Jewry, but as positive proof of the bankruptcy of assimilation and liberalism.11

Here Brenner is referring to the so-called Ha’avara agreement, or ‘transfer agreement’.

In 1933, Sam Cohen, owner of a citrus export company in Tel Aviv, approached the German government with the proposal that emigrants from Germany could avoid the flight tax by instead purchasing German products, which would then be shipped to Palestine, along with their purchasers, where the new arrivals in Palestine could then redeem their investments after the sale of the products by import merchants.

Heinrich Wolff, the German Consul in Jerusalem, quickly realized the utility of such an arrangement in tamping the international boycott effort of German import goods. He wrote to Berlin:

Whereas in April and May the Yishuv [the European Jewish community in Palestine] was waiting boycott instructions from the United States, it now seems that the situation has been transformed. It is Palestine which now gives the instructions… It is important to break the boycott first and foremost in Palestine, and the effect will inevitably be felt on the main front, in the United States.12

Cohen had promised Heinrich Wolff that he would work behind the scenes at the forthcoming Jewish conference in London to weaken or defeat any boycott resolution.

Dr Fritz Reichert, the Gestapo’s agent in Palestine, later wrote to his headquarters:

The London Boycott Conference was torpedoed from Tel Aviv because the head of the Transfer in Palestine, in close contact with the consulate in Jerusalem, sent cables to London. Our main function here is to prevent, from Palestine, the unification of world Jewry on a basis hostile to Germany … It is advisable to damage the political and economic strength of Jewry by sowing dissention in its ranks.12

Negotiations with the Nazi government were taken over by the World Zionist Organization and Cohen was replaced by Chaim Arlosoroff, the Political Secretary of the Jewish Agency. Arlosoroff traveled to Berlin in May of 1933. He and the Nazis reached a preliminary understanding to continue Cohen’s arrangement. Arlosoroff returned to Tel Aviv where he was assassinated, most probably by some members of the Revisionist wing of Zionism headed by Jabotinsky who opposed any accommodation with the Nazis.

Negotiations continued, however, and an agreement was signed in 1933 between the Nazis and the World Zionist Organization which persisted until 1939 and the German invasion of Poland. The Ha’arava grew to become a substantial banking and trading house with 137 specialists in its Jerusalem office at the height of its activities. The sale of German products expanded to include destinations outside of Palestine, but the arrangement remained essentially the same as the one originally negotiated by Sam Cohen – that German Jews wishing to emigrate, rather giving up most or all of their wealth to the German government, could invest their money in a German bank which would be used for purchasing German export goods. The purchaser could then redeem his investment when the goods had been sold and after he had arrived in Palestine. The German government set the rules and the emigrant would lose typically in excess of 30% of his investment and, eventually, 50%.

Indeed, there was a fundamental incompatibility with the upbuilding of a Jewish state in Palestine and opposition to the Nazi program of extermination of Europe’s Jews. The Ha’avara agreement allowed the transfer of LP 8,100,000 (Palestinian Pounds; then $40,419,000) to Palestine along with 60,000 German Jews between 1933 and 1939. But it also had the effect of undercutting the international boycott effort and providing an inflow of capital to the German government owing to the sale of German manufactured goods abroad.

This understanding is important, as the Holocaust has been central in provoking sympathy for the State of Israel and in amplifying the claims for reparations from European governments. Sympathy for the victims of the Holocaust, whether Jews or Roma, is no less justified, but the state of Israel cannot maintain an air of complete innocence nor be the justified recipient of billions of dollars or reparations, very little of which is actually dispersed to Holocaust survivors.

Nor has Israel accepted the universal principle that states must pay reparations to ethnicities whom it has harmed, as Israel has ignored or denied the catastrophe of ethnic cleansing and massacres which it prosecuted against the Palestinian people in 1948.

The model of Jews fleeing a burning building; i.e., the Nazi Holocaust, and thus creating a redoubt of safety in the form of the state of Israel cannot be maintained. Aside from the fact that the Zionist project was initiated at least by the time of Herzl’s Der Judenstaat of 1896 and his founding of the World Zionist Congress a year later, and well before the Nazi ascension to power in the 1930s, the Zionists were little concerned with the slaughter of Jews in Europe and almost exclusively focused on building a state in Palestine.

A proposal by the British, in the aftermath of Kristallnacht, of November 1938, that Britain admit a thousand children directly into Britain was sternly opposed by Ben Gurion who told a meeting of the Labor Zionist in December:

If I knew that it would be possible to save all the children in Germany by bringing them over to England, and only half of them by transferring them to Eretz Israel, then I would opt for the second alternative. For we must weigh not only the life of these children, but also the history of the People of Israel.13

By 1943, ample reports of massacres of Europe’s Jews were arriving in the US, though it garnered little of the mainstream press.

Jabotinsky’s “revisionist zionismAt this time, Peter Bergson, a Palestinian Jew and member of the Irgun, a militant offspring of the Revisionist Zionists, and his young colleagues, shifted their attention to saving Europe’s Jews. Bergson, who had been sent to New York City, by Revisionists leader, Jaobtinsky, in order to create American support of the establishment of a Jewish army in Palestine, and his colleagues formed the Emergency Committee to Save Europe’s Jews and initiated it with a conference attended by 1500 delegates including former President Herbert Hoover and New York Mayor Fiorello La Guardia. The delegates ultimately adopted an eight-point rescue program, the primary feature of which was the creation of a US government agency charged with saving Europe’s Jews. They also called for their allies to immediately attack the concentration camps and bomb railroads lines leading to them.

The conference’s program sought to avoid the issue of a Jewish state in Palestine, preferring to leave that to another day. Indeed, the efforts of Bergson were perceived by the American Jewish organizations, and especially by Rabbi Stephen Wise, head of the American Jewish Conference, as an effort to divert energy and attention away from Zionism and the upbuilding of a Jewish state in Palestine.

Bergson’s group sponsored full page advertisements in the New York Timesand other newspapers with such bold headlines as, “HELP Prevent 4,000,000 People from Becoming Ghosts.” Another read, “THIS IS STRICTLY A RACE AGAINST DEATH.”

The Emergency Committee also organized public events and rallies and a march by 450 Orthodox rabbis to the White House and the US Capitol. They also staged a theatrical production, entitled, We Will Never Die, authored by Academy Award winning screen writer Ben Hecht and included actors such as Edward G. Robinson with music written by Bertoldt Brecht. The play chronicled the contributions of Jews and addressed the current situation of Europe’s Jews.

The production played to 40,000 in Madison Square Garden and, in Washington, was viewed by Eleanor Roosevelt and hundreds of members of Congress.

Though the Emergency Committee had raised the consciousness of Americans for the plight of Europe’s Jews, their efforts were strongly opposed by America’s organized Jewish groups including Rabbi Stephen Wise and his American Jewish Congress.

In Buffalo, Baltimore, and Pittsburgh, local mainstream Jewish organizations attempted to block the production of We Will Never Die.

Most significant of the Emergency Committees’ actions was to provoke the sponsorship of a resolution, introduced in the House by Baldwin and Will Rogers Jr., and in the Senate by Guy Gillette, on November 9, 1943.

The full text follows:

Whereas the Congress of the United States, by concurrent resolution adopted on March 15 of this year, expressed its condemnation of Nazi Germany’s ‘mass murder of Jewish men, women, and children,’ a mass crime which has already exterminated close to two million human beings, about 30 per centum of the total Jewish population of Europe, and which is growing in intensity as Germany approaches defeat; and

Whereas the American tradition of justice and humanity dictates that all possible means be employed to save from this fate the surviving Jews of Europe, some four million souls who have been rendered homeless and destitute by the Nazis: therefore be it

Resolved, That the House of Representatives recommends and urges the creation by the President of a commission of diplomatic, economic, and military experts to formulate and effectuate a plan of immediate action designed to save the surviving Jewish people of Europe from extinction at the hands of Nazi Germany.

Senator Gillette emphasized that the bill focused only on rescue and not on the issue of Palestine or a Jewish state.

It is not to be confused with the dispute over the future of Palestine, over a Jewish state or a Jewish army. The issue is non-sectarian. The sole object here is to rescue as many as possible of Hitler’s victims, pending complete Allied victory.

Stephen Wise tried unsuccessfully to persuade the sponsors of the bill to withdraw their support. But failing that, Wise traveled to Washington and testified before the House Foreign Affairs Committee, chaired by Sol Bloom, stating that the resolution was ‘“inadequate” because it did not urge the British government to open Palestine to Jewish refugees” [italics mine].14

The lack of a reference to Palestine was, of course, intentionally absent from the bill.

Congressman Rogers also faced strong pressure from Zionists groups:

When it became known that I was becoming a member of the Bergson group, there was a terrific amount of pressure from all sorts of areas. I went back to Beverly Hills and I remember meeting with Rabbi Stephen S Wise in a synagogue. … He took me aside and said, ‘Now, young man. I knew your father very well. Now you are getting confused, you are getting mixed up with the wrong type of people. Let me tell you and steer you clear when it comes on, or want to meet the right people, the responsible people.’ He was quite the diplomat. He didn’t say, ‘If you get mixed up with them, you are not going to be reelected.’ He wasn’t that direct, but he made every pressure that he could, and where he know it would be effective.15

Gillette also faced strong opposition.

These people used every effort, every means at their disposal, to block the resolution. … [They] tried to defeat it by offering and amendment, insisting on an amendment to it that would raise the question, the controversial question of Zionism or anti-Zionism … or anything that might stop or block the action that we were seeking.15

On stationary with the letterhead of the American Jewish Congress, Stephen Wise wrote to Secretary of the Interior, Harold L. Ickles on December 23, 1943:

I was very sorry to note, as were others among your friends, that you had accepted the Chairmanship of the Washington Division of the Committee to Rescue European Jews. … I do not like to speak ill of you, not of us, concerning a group of Jews, but I am under the inexorable necessity of saying to you that the time will come, and come soon, when you will find it necessary to withdraw from this irresponsible group, which exists and obtains funds through being permitted to use the names of non-Jews like yourself.

Nor was Bergson beyond the crosshairs of the American Zionists. Bergson received an offer from Congressman Samuel Dickstein (D-NY) to meet with him in his DC office where it turned out that several other US Congressmen had also assembled. He was told, as paraphrased by Bergson, that unless he ‘behaved”, “we will deport you. … One shouldn’t mistake democracy with lawlessness, and don’t feel that you can just come to this country without – on temporary visitor’s visa and do whatever you wish …”15

Despite the opposition of the American Zionist community, the bill passed the Senate Foreign Relations Committee unanimously only to die in the entire Senate.

According to a State Department memorandum, Rabbi Stephen Wise had expressed to State Department John Pehle, that Wise “had gone so far as to inform Mr Pehle that he regarded Bergson as equally great an enemy of the Jews as Hitler, for reasons that his activities could only lead to increased anti-Semitism.”11

Reports of atrocities and mass murders in the Ukraine began arriving in the west in 1941. In January 1942, the Soviets issued a report of the working of the Einsatzgruppen, or the SS, and in May of that year, the Bund, the Jewish Workers Union of Poland and Russia, which was anti-Zionist, sent London a radio message that 700,000 people, most Jews, were exterminated in Poland. This message was repeated on the BBC two months later.

In April, even before the Bund broadcast, Moshe Shertok, later to become Israel’s second Prime Minister, wrote to British General and commander of the British Eight Army in North Africa:

The destruction of the Jewish race is a fundamental tenet of the Nazi doctrine. The authoritative reports recently published show that that policy is being carried out with a ruthlessness which defies description … An even swifter destruction, it must be feared, would overtake the Jews of Palestine.16

The focus here is on the hypothetical Nazi attack on Palestine, not on the slaughter actually taking place in Europe, but based, nonetheless, on Shertok’s understanding that such a slaughter was, in fact, taking place.

Despite the amply sufficient reports of massacres and exterminations, essentially nothing at all was done by the Zionist organizations, and reports of atrocities were consistently minimized.

Dov Joseph, acting director of the Jewish Agency’s Political Department cautioned:

… against publishing data exaggerating the number of Jewish victim, for if we announce that millions of Jews have been slaughtered by the Nazis, we will justifiably be asked where the millions of Jews are, for whom we claim that we shall need to provide a home in Eretz Israel after the war ends.17

Yitzhak Gruenbaum, leader of the Jewish Agency’s Vaad Hazalah (Rescue Committee) who, in 1942 also believed the reports of atrocities taking place in Europe were exaggerated, offers a defense in his post war book, Bi-mei Hurban ve Sho’ah (In the Days of Holocaust and Destruction):

I want to destroy this assumption [that the Zionist leadership was to blame that it did not do everything possible to help the European Jews] in order to take out people from the occupied countries … it would be necessary for the neutral countries to provide refuge, that the warring nations open their gates to the refugees. …

How is it possible that in a meeting in Yerushalayim people will call: “If you don’t have enough money you should take it from Keren Hayesod [the Palestine Foundation Fund], you should take the money from the bank, there is money there.” I thought it obligatory to stand before this wave … .

And this time in Eretz Yisrael, there are comments: “Don’t put Eretz Yisrael in priority in this difficult time, in the time of destruction and European Jewry.’ I do not accept such sayings. And when some asked me: ‘Can’t you give money from the Keren Hayesod to save Jews in the Diaspora’? I said: no! And again I say no! … I think we have to stand before this wave that is putting Zionist activity into second row. …  I think it necessary to say here Zionism is over everything… [Italics mine]

… [W]e must guard Zionism. There are those who feel that this should not be said at the time a Holocaust is occurring, but believe me, lately we see worrisome manifestations in this respect: Zionism is above all – it is necessary to sound this whenever a Holocaust diverts us from our war of liberation in Zionism. Our war of liberation does not arise from the fact of the Holocaust in a straight forward manner and does not interlock with actions for the benefit of the Diaspora … And we must guard – especially in these times – the supremacy of the war of redemption [Italics mine].18

The irony is overwhelming. Though the memory and imagery of the Holocaust is not far from the lips of every Israel leader, particularly the present one, and though this imagery is exploited for the sake of gaining tolerance and forbearance from the international community, as well as reparations which go well beyond actuarial merits, there was little serious concern on the part of organized Zionism for those facing extermination in Europe. Rather the Holocaust was regarded as a threat which had the potential of diverting energy and resources from the creation of a Jewish state in Palestine which was by far their highest priority.

The fact that the initiation of the Zionist project had nothing to do with the Holocaust, as it developed more than a half century earlier, and the fact of the mostly indifference to the slaughter of Jews on the part of the founders of Israel, together with its collaboration with the Nazi Party, undermines Israel’s projected, and exploited, image as innocent victim.

At the end of the war a document, dated 11 January 1941, produced by Avraham Stern, proposing a military alliance and an understanding between the Third Reich and the Zionists was found in the German embassy in Ankara. It had been presented to two German diplomats in Lebanon, under Vichy at that time. The document was entitled, “Proposal for the National Military Organization (Irgun Zvai Leumi) Concerning the Solution of the Jewish Question in Europe and the Participation of the NMO in the War on the side of Germany.” The NMO, later to adopt the name Lohamamei Herut Yisrael, or lehi for short, was universally known by its British designation as the Stern gang.

The document read:

The evacuation of the Jewish masses from Europe is a precondition for solving the Jewish question; but this can only be made possible and complete through the settlement of these masses in the home of the Jewish people, Palestine, and through the establishment of a Jewish state in its historical boundaries …  The NMO, which is well acquainted with the goodwill of the German Reich government and its authorities towards Zionist activity inside Germany and towards Zionist emigration plans, is of the opinion that:

1. Common interests could exist between the establishment of a New Order in Europe in conformity with the German concept, and the true national aspirations of the Jewish people as they are embodied by the NMO.

2. Cooperation between the new Germany and a renewed volkish-national Hebrium would be possible; and,

3. The establishment of the historical Jewish state on a national and totalitarian basis, and bound by a treaty with the German Reich, would be in the interest of a maintained and strengthened future German position of power in the Near East.

Proceeding from these considerations, the NMO in Palestine, under the condition the above-mentioned national aspirations of the Israeli freedom movement, are recognized on the side of the German Reich, offers to actively take part in the war on Germany’s side [italics mine].

This offer by the NMO … would be connected to the military training and organization of Jewish manpower in Europe, under the leadership and command of the NMO. These military units would take part in the fight to conquer Palestine, should such a front be decided upon.

The indirect participation of the Israeli freedom movement in the New Order in Europe, already in the preparatory stage, would be linked with a positive-radical solution of the European Jewish problem in conformity with the above-mentioned national aspirations of the Jewish people. This would extraordinarily strengthen the moral basis of the New Order in the eyes of all humanity.19

The Irgun, (the MNO) under Manachem Begin, and the Stern Gang, are sometime blamed, by mainstream Zionism, as being uniquely responsible for the more grotesque atrocities of Israel’s fight against both the Arabs and against the British in its quest for statehood; for example, the bombing of the King David Hotel in 1946, in which 96 mostly civilians were killed, and the massacre at Deir Yassin. In fact, both of these actions involved the coordination of these ‘dissident groups’ with the Haganah — the military under the direction of David Ben Gurion.

Yitzhak Yzernitsky — later to call himself Yitzhak Shamir, and later to become Israeli Prime Minister, in fact, the longest serving Prime Minister of Israel except for David Ben Gurion — became the operations commander of the Stern Gang after Avraham Stern was killed by the British army in February of 1942. Under Shamir’s leadership, 14 assassinations were attempted of British officials with two successful ones, of Lord Moyne, the British Minister Resident in the Middle East, sitting in Cairo, and the UN Representative to Palestine, Count Folke Bernadotte, who received three bullets in the heart on the order of Stern’s operations commander and future Prime Minister – Yitzhak Shamir.

The Charter of the Stern Gang, or more accurately, the principles promulgated by Stern, included the establishment of a Jewish state “from the Nile to the Euphrates”, the ‘transfer of the Palestinian Arabs to regions outside of the Jewish state, and the building of the Third Temple in Jerusalem. It maintained offices outside of the Middle East – including Warsaw, Paris, London, and New York City, the latter headed by Benzion Netanyahu, the present Prime Minister’s father.

    Rabbi Stephen Wise notes in his biography, "Challenging Years," that his attendance at Theodor Herzl's zionist conference in Basl changed the course of his life. 
     
    Wise was an ideologue's ideologue, with indefatigable energy and a pseudo-intellectual's hubristic belief that if a notion passed thru his fevered brain, it must be the word of the almighty and he, Stephen Wise, was chosen by that god (or mysterious voice) to enact it.
     
    Wise's autobiography also contains extensive discussion of Wise's argument with himself about whether a person committed to religion — he was a Jewish rabbis, as had been his Hungarian ancestors — should also engage in political activism.  Wise settled the debate by granting himself permission to make a (goddamned) nuisance of himself in pestering the highest officials of any given US or British administration.
    Wise was a student of the Jewish history of H. Graetz, as many right-leaning Jews were (and many still are today). Graetz's multivolume history was published beginning in 1874; it focused very heavily on Jewish victimization   PLEASE THINK ABOUT THE DATES — 1874 = pre-holocaust; Hitler was minus eight years old; Dreyfuss had not yet enlisted in the French army; alleged Russian pogroms of Jews did not occur until 1881.  MORAL OF story/timeline:  BAD History Makes for worse policy-making.)
     
    Graetz was embarrassed by the mystical and kabbalistic elements the dominated much of European Jewry, so he did not research or write about it in his History of the Jews.
     
    Rabbi Wise was caught up in the victimhood narrative that Graetz propagated. Coupled with the emotionally-charged experience of attending the zionist confab at Basl, Wise was a walking talking ziocaine addict.
     
    There are some theories about mystical numbers in Jewry and in Hebrew scripture.  I never spent any time looking into it — the topic is intellectually icky — I'd rather touch a slug.  Apparently Graetz felt the same. 
     
    But Rabbi Wise luved him his 6 million.
     
    A researcher at this website http://theuglytruth.wordpress.com/2013/03/19/236-references-to-6000000-jews-prior-to-the-nuremberg-trial-announcement/
     
    has unearthed 236 instances in which "6 million Jews" were starved, killed, threatened, persecuted, victimized, called a nasty name, or otherwise had their tender fewwings hoit.  (boo hoo) in the years between
    Rabbi Wise kicked off the hit parade with this article in 1900:
     
    1900 – Stephen S. Wise, New York Times, June 11, 1900
    "There are 6,000,000 living, bleeding, suffering arguments in favor of Zionism."

     
    Thereafter, Encyclopedia Britannica (the British have been willing lapdogs/enablers/co-conspirators of zionism from the time of Lord Palmerston).
    1902 – Encyclopaedia Britannica, 10th Edition, Vol. 25, 1902, page 482

    The  use of the magic number 6 million that really, really bothers me is the letter that Martin Glyn, former governor of the State of New York, published in The American Hebrew in October 1919, titled "The Crucifixion of Jews Must Stop."
    Included in Glyn;s lament was mention of  "eight hundred thousand little children who cry for bread."
    They were allegedly deprived of bread "just because they are Jews."
     
    That rankles because:
    1. 800,000 German civilians were deliberately starved to death as a result of the Allied blockade, in which Chaim Weizmann, who wrangled the Balfour Declaration out of Alfred Balfour, was complicit.
     
    2. Jewish agencies with offices in the US as well as Europe, provided funds — at least part of which was solicited from various government sources– and provided food aid, medical care, political and other services to Polish, Russian and German Jews to ensure that no Jew would suffer from privations during and after World War I — the period when Weizmann & other zionists were deliberately starving German civilians.
     
    3.  By the way — Persia was contested ground in WWI, coveted by the British, Russians, and US.  Persia remained neutral, but the Allies occupied Persia throughout the war, and caused a famine that, according to American foreign service officers in Persia at the time, cost the lives of as much as 40% of Persia's population.
    Mohammad Gholi Majd has studied diplomatic documents from the period and recently published
    "The Great Famine and Genocide in Persia, 1917-1919."
    Majd states that it took Persia until 1964 to reestablish the population it had in 1914:  fifty years of lives that never came into being.
     
    The same genocidal characters who facilitated and profited from the starvation of 800,000 German civilians, then claimed that THEY were the "victims" of "hunger,"  are TODAY attempting to once again starve the Iranian people.

      Thank you Sam  for reminding all of the often quoted  6 million figure, since revised downward when the figures at Auschwitz were questioned. Starvation as a tool has been used by the Jews for decades with the immediate post WW2 starving of  Germans being both authorized and enforced by the charming Eisenhower (known as the Swedish Jew at West Point ) see … http://www.rense.com/general85/mill.htm   One can also quote the Holmidor of the Ukranian's by the Jewish Bolsheviks from 1932-33  see … Execution by Hunger   http://www.ihr.org/jhr/v07/v07p229_Ward.html

    Blair, Augustine of Hippo was one of Catholicism's founding fathers.  He advocated a for of communal life with a rather undeveloped concept about the haves taking care of the have-nots. The Rule of St Augustine that governs many Roman Catholic religious orders includes this injunction:  

     

    "Call not anything your own but let all things be unto you in common.  Seek to please not by what you wear but by what you are." There were additional prescriptions for the distrubition of wealth (in the monastary) that, if I recall correctly, included the words, "to each according to his needs, from each according to his means."  

     

    I think it's a stretch to call Augustine's counsels for economic justice "Marxism."  Marx had pseudo-scientific ideas about proletariats and revolutions and breaking down national borders to expand to an international revolution, etc.  It's a nutty theory when you think about it, and it seems to have been written as a complaint against the industrialization of England and Europe in which financiers participated, but which had the result of turning many European have-nots into paupers and victims — Dickens has explored the topic. The Roman Catholic church has many flaws, but it does have some high ideals and from time to time it has attempted to achieve those ideals.  One such ideal is what was called in Cardinal Bernardin's day the "preferential option for the poor."  The Catholic church is STILL known for its willingness to give aid to the poorest of the poor.

     

    Re your comparison of 'isms,' my visit to Iran impressed upon me that Iranians are almost reflexively committed to hospitality — offering food and drink to all, regardless of race, creed, etc.  Further, I observed that Iranians generally pay very close attention to their family and extended family, and finally, I saw almost no street-begging or homeless on the streets in Tehran, or Isfehan or Mashad — Iran's largest cities.  (In contrast, in my own neighborhood, homeless are shunted from pillar to post in a frenzy of NIMBY-ism, and end up begging in the intersections of major highways). In Iran's major — and minor — cities there are blue and yellow 'charity boxes' on every street corner where people drop coins for care for the poor.   I was told that this system is corrupt — funds are frequently diverted.  But ordinary Iranians have devised a work-around to collect funds for the poor and devise ways to care for the poor directly.  The executive summary is — Roman Catholicism's founding principles are to treat all people equally and to care for the poor.  Iran seems to have a similar ethic. 

     

    BOTH traditions predated Marx by a thousand years or more, and neither system has international revolution as part of the agenda.

    "History is written by the victors” – W. Churchill An interesting perspective on World War II, and the players involved. Many people take joy in saying Wall Street and Jewish bankers “financed Hitler.” There is plenty of documented evidence that Wall Street and Jewish bankers did indeed help finance Hitler at first, partly because it allowed the bankers to get rich (as I will describe below) and partly in order to control Stalin. However, when Germany broke free from the bankers, the bankers declared a world war against Germany. When we look at all the facts, the charge that “Jews financed Hitler” becomes irrelevant. Los Angeles Attorney Ellen Brown discusses this topic in her book Web of Debt…

     

    When Hitler came to power, Germany was hopelessly broke. The Treaty of Versailles had imposed crushing reparations on the German people, demanding that Germans repay every nation’s costs of the war. These costs totaled three times the value of all the property in Germany. Private currency speculators caused the German mark to plummet, precipitating one of the worst runaway inflations in modern times. A wheelbarrow full of 100 billion-mark banknotes could not buy a loaf of bread. The national treasury was empty. Countless homes and farms were lost to speculators and to private banks. Germans lived in hovels. They were starving. Nothing like this had ever happened before – the total destruction of the national currency, plus the wiping out of people’s savings and businesses.

     

    On top of this came a global depression. Germany had no choice but to succumb to debt slavery under international bankers until 1933, when the National Socialists came to power. At that point the German government thwarted the international banking cartels by issuing its own money. World Jewry responded by declaring a global boycott against Germany. Hitler began a national credit program by devising a plan of public works that included flood control, repair of public buildings and private residences, and construction of new roads, bridges, canals, and port facilities. All these were paid for with money that no longer came from the private international bankers. The projected cost of these various programs was fixed at one billion units of the national currency. To pay for this, the German government (not the international bankers) issued bills of exchange, called Labor Treasury Certificates. In this way the National Socialists put millions of people to work, and paid them with Treasury Certificates.

     

    Under the National Socialists, Germany’s money wasn’t backed by gold (which was owned by the international bankers). It was essentially a receipt for labor and materials delivered to the government. Hitler said, “For every mark issued, we required the equivalent of a mark’s worth of work done, or goods produced.” The government paid workers in Certificates. Workers spent those Certificates on other goods and services, thus creating more jobs for more people. In this way the German people climbed out of the crushing debt imposed on them by the international bankers.

     

    Within two years, the unemployment problem had been solved, and Germany was back on its feet. It had a solid, stable currency, with no debt, and no inflation, at a time when millions of people in the United States and other Western countries (controlled by international bankers) were still out of work. Within five years, Germany went from the poorest nation in Europe to the richest. Germany even managed to restore foreign trade, despite the international bankers’ denial of foreign credit to Germany, and despite the global boycott by Jewish-owned industries. Germany succeeded in this by exchanging equipment and commodities directly with other countries, using a barter system that cut the bankers out of the picture.

     

    Germany flourished, since barter eliminates national debt and trade deficits. (Venezuela does the same thing today when it trades oil for commodities, plus medical help, and so on. Hence the bankers are trying to squeeze Venezuela.) Germany’s economic freedom was short-lived; but it left several monuments, including the famous Autobahn, the world’s first extensive superhighway. Hjalmar Schacht, a Rothschild agent who was temporarily head of the German central bank, summed it up thus…

     

    An American banker had commented, “Dr. Schacht, you should come to America. We’ve lots of money and that’s real banking.” Schacht replied, “You should come to Berlin. We don’t have money. That’s real banking.” (Schacht, the Rothschild agent, actually supported the private international bankers against Germany, and was rewarded by having all charges against him dropped at the Nuremberg trials.) This economic freedom made Hitler extremely popular with the German people. Germany was rescued from English economic theory, which says that all currency must be borrowed against the gold owned by a private and secretive banking cartel — such as the Federal Reserve, or the Central Bank of Europe — rather than issued by the government for the benefit of the people.

     

    Canadian researcher Dr. Henry Makow (who is Jewish himself) says the main reason why the bankers arranged for a world war against Germany was that Hitler sidestepped the bankers by creating his own money, thereby freeing the German people. Worse, this freedom and prosperity threatened to spread to other nations. Hitler had to be stopped! Makow quotes from the 1938 interrogation of C. G. Rakovsky, one of the founders of Soviet Bolshevism and a Trotsky intimate.

     

    Rakovsky was tried in show trials in the USSR under Stalin. According to Rakovsky, Hitler was at first funded by the international bankers, through the bankers’ agent Hjalmar Schacht. The bankers financed Hitler in order to control Stalin, who had usurped power from their agent Trotsky. Then Hitler became an even bigger threat than Stalin when Hitler started printing his own money. (Stalin came to power in 1922, which was eleven years before Hitler came to power.) Rakovsky said: “Hitler took over the privilege of manufacturing money, and not only physical moneys, but also financial ones. He took over the machinery of falsification and put it to work for the benefit of the people. Can you possibly imagine what would have come if this had infected a number of other states?” (Henry Makow, “Hitler Did Not Want War,” March 21, 2004). Economist Henry C K Liu writes of Germany’s remarkable transformation: “The Nazis came to power in 1933 when the German economy was in total collapse, with ruinous war-reparation obligations and zero prospects for foreign investment or credit.

     

    Through an independent monetary policy of sovereign credit and a full-employment public-works program, the Third Reich was able to turn a bankrupt Germany, stripped of overseas colonies, into the strongest economy in Europe within four years, even before armament spending began.” (Henry C. K. Liu, “Nazism and the German Economic Miracle,” Asia Times (May 24, 2005). In Billions for the Bankers, Debts for the People (1984), Sheldon Emry commented: “Germany issued debt-free and interest-free money from 1935 on, which accounts for Germany’s startling rise from the depression to a world power in five years. The German government financed its entire operations from 1935 to 1945 without gold, and without debt. It took the entire Capitalist and Communist world to destroy the German revolution, and bring Europe back under the heel of the Bankers.” These facts do not appear in any textbooks today. What does appear is the disastrous runaway inflation suffered in 1923 by the Weimar Republic, which governed Germany from 1919 to 1933. Today’s textbooks use this inflation to twist truth into its opposite. They cite the radical devaluation of the German mark as an example of what goes wrong when governments print their own money, rather than borrow it from private cartels. In reality, the Weimar financial crisis began with the impossible reparations payments imposed at the Treaty of Versailles. Hjalmar Schacht [who was never a Nazi Party member either and now it appears clear why that was the case] – the Rothschild agent who was currency commissioner for the Republic — opposed letting the German government print its own money…

     

    “The Treaty of Versailles is a model of ingenious measures for the economic destruction of Germany. Germany could not find any way of holding its head above the water, other than by the inflationary expedient of printing bank notes.” Schacht echoes the textbook lie that Weimar inflation was caused when the German government printed its own money. However, in his 1967 book The Magic of Money, Schacht let the cat out of the bag by revealing that it was the PRIVATELY-OWNED Reich bank, not the German government, that was pumping new currency into the economy. Thus, the PRIVATE BANK caused the Weimar hyper-inflation. Like the U.S. Federal Reserve, the Reich bank was overseen by appointed government officials, but was operated for private gain. What drove the wartime inflation into hyperinflation was speculation by foreign investors, who sold the mark short, betting on its decreasing value. In the manipulative device known as the short sale, speculators borrow something they don’t own, sell it, and then “cover” by buying it back at the lower price. Speculation in the German mark was made possible because the PRIVATELY OWNED Reich bank (not yet under Nazi control) made massive amounts of currency available for borrowing. This currency, like U.S. currency today, was created with accounting entries on the bank’s books.

     

    Then the funny-money was lent at compound interest. When the Reich bank could not keep up with the voracious demand for marks, other private banks were allowed to create marks out of nothing, and to lend them at interest. The result was runaway debt and inflation. Thus, according to Schacht himself, the German government did not cause the Weimar hyperinflation. On the contrary, the government (under the National Socialists) got hyperinflation under control. The National Socialists put the Reich bank under strict government regulation, and took prompt corrective measures to eliminate foreign speculation.

     

    One of those measures was to eliminate easy access to funny-money loans from private banks. Then Hitler got Germany back on its feet by having the public government issue Treasury Certificates. Schacht , the Rothschild agent, disapproved of this government fiat money, and wound up getting fired as head of the Reich bank when he refused to issue it. Nonetheless, he acknowledged in his later memoirs that allowing the government to issue the money it needed did not produce the price inflation predicted by classical economic theory, which says that currency must be borrowed from private cartels. What causes hyper-inflation is uncontrolled speculation. When speculation is coupled with debt (owed to private banking cartels) the result is disaster. On the other hand, when a government issues currency in carefully measured ways, it causes supply and demand to increase together, leaving prices unaffected. Hence there is no inflation, no debt, no unemployment, and no need for income taxes.

     

    Naturally this terrifies the bankers, since it eliminates their powers. It also terrifies the internationalists, since their control of banking allows them to buy the media, the government, and everything else.

    African4's post is enormously important information.   

     

    EVERYONE should read it, put the facts down on paper, expand on them, put them in context and relate the historic events to the Jekyll Island money cartel and to zionism, to World War I and World War II, to the war on terror, and to the war that has been waged against Iran BY AIPAC since 1995.  

     

    In this 2006 video, Benjamin Netanyahu tells a Jewish conference in California that "It is 1938 and Iran is Germany. We have to stop them."   Bibi alludes (for the first of about 20 gazillion times) to the bogus claim that "Ahmadinejad wants to wipe Israel from the face of the earth," and said, "when someone threatens you you better believe him."   Well, when Bibi threatens Iran, you better believe him.   African4 wrote that —   "The National Socialists came to power …in 1933… [and] thwarted the international banking cartels by issuing its own money. World Jewry responded by declaring a global boycott against Germany."  

     

    In 2005 Ahmadinejad came to power  with broad popular support, and continued Iran's march to control of its own economy. By 2006, a new iteration of the Jewish cabal that declared an economic war on Germany in 1933, initiated an economic war on Iran, and used the US Department of Treasury to do it:  "His idea was to prevent a country reliant on global trade — as an ancient empire, a station on the Silk Road across Asia and a modern petroleum powerhouse — from being able to do business outside its borders. “That could spark the right internal debate in Iran,” Levey told me when we met in his spacious Washington office," http://www.nytimes.com/2008/11/02/magazine/02IRAN-t.html?pagewanted=all&_r=0   This genius idea of Levey's is lifted right out of the Jewish playbook for the Jewish economic boycott of Germany which was announced, as a JUDEA[N] DECLARATION OF WAR ON GERMANY in London newspapers on March 24, 1933.  The Declaration lists the various ways that "international Jewry" would cut off trade with Germany with the goal of "bringing Germany to its knees", causing Germans to suffer "until it comes to its senses."    

     

    Levey's Declaration of War on Iran in 2006 parallels "International Jewry's Declaration of War on Germany" in 1933.   Netanyahu's formulation, however, is "It's 1938 and Iran is Germany."   What happened in 1938?   Before we explain that, what was happening in Germany between 1933 and 1938?   The answer is, as African4 pointed out, Germany was succeeding without reliance on Jewish and other predatory capitalist financiers.  Jews called this "persecution."   

     

    In their recent book, "FDR and the Jews,"  the hysterically unhinged Breitman & Lichtman make this concession about that five-year period: "Some Nazi activists physically assaulted Jews in the early exuberant days of Hitler's semilegal revolution." BUT   "Once secure in their authority, Nazi officials curbed personal violence, but enacted a series of discriminatory laws and decrees" In other words, very soon after taking power, Hitler and the NSDAP reestablished the rule of law. While Germany and the NSDAP was diligently working to get Germans back to work, resuscitate the economy, and unify the fragmented German social culture, Jews in the US and Great Britain disseminated a steady stream of "atrocity propaganda", and pursued the economic boycott intended to destroy Germany.    

     

    Germany stubbornly refused to rise to the Jewish bait or be provoked to violence against Jews. Breitman & Lichtman continue:   "Only in late 1938 did central authorities instigate the violence known as Kristallnacht — the Night of Broken Glass– wiping out synagogues across the country in a matter of days.  For the first time, the Gestapo imprisoned tens of thousands of German Jews in concentration camps…" 112 pages later, Breitman & Lichtman make a vague allusion to the murder of a German diplomat in Paris that touched off Kristallnacht.   The website of the US Hollowhoax Museum provides a bit more information to connect the two events:  it says: "The pretext for this violence was the November 7 assassination of a German diplomat in Paris, Ernst vom Rath, by Herschel Grynszpan, a Jewish teenager whose parents, along with 17,000 other Polish Jews, had been recently expelled from the Reich. Though portrayed as spontaneous outbursts of popular outrage, these pogroms were calculated acts of retaliation carried out by the SA, SS, and local Nazi party organizations"   USHMM makes these charges based on absolutely no evidence.  It's an exercise in mind-reading — or projection. If one a. does some cursory investigation into Grynszpan's activities; and b. applies the qui bono test, it is reasonable to reach a far different conclusion. a. USHMM calls Grynszpan a penniless "teenager" from the Polish border. 

     

    So how did a wandering teen pay for a hotel just around the corner from the Paris embassy where he shot and killed  German diplomat vom Rath? b. Under what rationale would the German government think it useful to activate violence against Jews?  Zionist agents worked collaboratively with the NSDAP government to shepherd Jews out of Germany to Palestine.  Migration into Palestine was a violation of British Mandate policy at the time. 

     

    Germany's part in the movement of German Jews to Palestine stopped at Germany's border; zionists did the work of illegally breaking the British blockade.  Why would NSDAP provoke world opinion and risk retaliation from zionist agents who were aiding in removing Jews from Germany? On the other hand, as Edwin Black writes in "The Transfer Agreement," "early in 1933, the Zionist movement's hierarchy in Europe and America was busy trying to plot a course of action.  Their objective was not to mobilize Jewish and non-Jewish resources for the preservation of Jewish rights in Germany. 

     

    Rather, they sought a means of turning the miseries of German Jewry into a new impetus for a Jewish homeland in Palestine."  p. 78   Thus, it ispossible to conceive of the November 1938 Kristallnacht as a false flag event whose purpose was to 'motivate' otherwise reluctant German Jews to leave Germany for Palestine.  (Remember from earlier comments:  by the second week of February 1933,  Louis Brandeis had decreed that "ALL JEWS MUST LEAVE GERMANY.")  

     

    IF it was indeed the case that 1938 Kristallnacht was a false flag event intended in some way to benefit the zionist project in the Levant; and GIVEN that Netanyahu has said on at least four occasions between 2006 and 2013 that "It is 1938 and Iran is Germany,"    and GIVEN that Netanyahu stated that when someone makes a threat, you should believe him and take measures to stop it, THEN is it reasonable to conclude that Israel and zionists are plotting a false flag operation akin to Kristallnacht, intended to further demonize and harm Iranians, for the benefit of zionists and Jews, using the United States and gullible Christians as instruments of their terror?  

     

    AND that it is time for Americans to grow a pair and forthrightly educate their fellow church-goers, tail-gaters, office mates, soccer moms, and other friends and relatives of the harms to the United States and to Christian culture that zionists have brought about in the past, and the necessity of exposing it, so that it can be turned back BEFORE another false holocaust occurs.   The last hollowhoax cost the lives of about 7 million Germans, over half of them civilians; untold millions of Russians. 

     

    In defending the zionist nightmare, Americans have subsidized and perpetrated the starvation of a million Iraqis and killed or displaced another four- or five-million Iraqis and destroyed their country; we have subsidized the destruction of Afghanistan Libya Syria. We are threatening Iran. Jewish people will live among the peoples of the world; they always have and they always will.  But the only way to ensure that "Never again" will innocent civilians be slaughtered, is by confronting the ideology that has been obscenely distorted to the religious belief, based on Abrahamic concepts, that Americans and Jews have the right to tell other people how to live their own lives.

    sorry to keep hogging bandwidth here — I just can't believe that a people that calls themselves "chosen" as the moral leaders of all mankind, are actually such hideous monsters that starving people to death is viagra to their clipped weinies.
     
    Just came across this paragraph in Edwin Black's "The Transfer Agreement," [ p. 187] –
    Black opens the chapter titled "Germany will crack this winter" with a list of all the very harmful effects the Jewish boycott of Germany will have on Germany's economy.
    He summarizes thus –
     
    "The Nazis knew [that] …if exports fell too low, Germany as a nation would again be faced with starvation.  It had happened just fourteen years earlier; it was still fresh in many minds.  In the winder of 1919, a besieged Germany was blockaded into submission, starved into defeat.  To the Nazis, the anti-German boycott of 1933 was in many ways a reminiscent tactic.  …As effective as any blockading frigate or infantryman was this boycott that blocked German goods from being sold, blocked foreign exchange from being earned, and blocked the means of survival from entering Germany.
     
    How many months could Germany survive once the boycott became global, once commerce was rerouted around Germany?"

    THIS IS EXACTLY THE PLAN THESE GODFORSAKEN PEOPLE HAVE IN MIND FOR IRAN.
    Stuart Levey said it to Robin Wright.
    After all, it worked so well for JEWS in 1919 to force Germans to sign the Versailles Treaty that was a double "zionist triumph" –
    -they acquired a homeland for Jews in Palestine;
    -they gained protection of Jewish rights in European states (i.e. Germany).
     
    THERE WERE over a hundred zionist Jews at the Versailles negotiations; Woodrow Wilson was never apart from his zionist Jewish minders.
     
    Lloyd George, the second most important person at Versailles, had been Theodor Herzl's lawyer — the equivalent of Martin Indyk/Dennis Ross.
    Germany was not represented, (just as Hamas is not invited to Kerry's 'peace' negotiations between I and P).
     
    -STARVING people to death worked so well for the US in Iraq — Madeleine Albright insists upon it.
     
    -Jews are the only culture that I am aware of whose cultural practices enjoin EXCLUDING others from joining in the sharing of food.

    The ZioNazi SS – satan's soldiers – at it again for round 2… or is it round 3? Just like I thought.
