Rabbi Ahron Cohen / Rabbi Sholem Dov Ber Schneerson
Benjamin H. Freedman / Naeim Giladi

       Rabbi Ahron Cohen, in an address delived 02/26/ 03, at Birmingham University,
England (abridged slightly):
     As you have already been told, I am an orthodox Jew (that is a
Jew who endeavors
to live his life completely in accordance with
the Jewish religion).  I am involved in
ecclesiastical duties within
the Jewish Community and am particularly involved in
our youth and in helping them to achieve healthy and correct attitudes.
is therefore of particular interest to me to be able to talk to you,
a student body, today.

     I have been asked to talk to you about Judaism and Zionism.  This
subject is of
course tremendously relevant in the light of the current
situation in Palestine, where
you have - let's face it - one side, the
Zionists (who are also Jews), wishing to
impose a 'sectarian' State
over the heads of an indigenous population, the Palestinians.
confrontation which has resulted in horrific bloodshed and brutality
with no end
in sight unless there is a very radical change.

     My qualification to talk on this subject is by virtue of my being
one of many
orthodox Jews who absolutely sympathize with the
Palestinian cause, and we protest
vehemently against the terrible
wrongs being perpetrated against the Palestinian
People by the Zionist
illegitimate regime in Palestine. ...

     Let me firstly state quite categorically that Judaism and Zionism
are incompatible.
 They are diametrically opposed.  The question must
surely arise in the minds of
many of you here today that there appears
to be a paradox. After all everyone knows
that Zionists are Jews and
that Zionism is for the benefit of Jews.  The Palestinians
are the
enemies of the Zionists.  How come then that I, a Jew, can sympathise
the Palestinian cause? I would like to try to answer this question
and to revert to the
subject of my talk - Judaism and Zionism - on
two levels, religious belief and
humanitarianism.  Bearing in mind
that to be humanitarian is also a basic religious

     Firstly from a Jewish religious belief point of view. One has to
take a look at
some aspects of the history of the Jewish people and
at their basic belief in the
Al-mighty's control of our destiny and
what the Al-mighty wants of us.  All
as set out in our Religious
teachings, our Torah, and as taught to us through the
by our great religious leaders.  Against this we also have to look at

the history of Zionism, how it developed, what are its aims.

     Our religion is for us a total way of life.  Showing us how to live
a life in
the service of the Al-mighty.  It affects every aspect of our
life from the cradle
to the grave.  We are taught that it was revealed
to us by Divine Revelation, as
described in the Bible, some three
and a half thousand years ago, and that is
when the Jewish People
came in to being. All of our religious requirements,
practical and
philosophical, are set out in the Torah which comprises the Bible

(the old testament) and a vast code of Oral Teaching handed down
to us through
the generations.  

     As mentioned, our religion is a total way of life covering every
aspect of our
life.  One area of our religion is that subject to certain
conditions is that we will
be given a land, the Holy Land, now known
as Palestine, in which to live and
carry out various parts of our service
of the Al-mighty.

     Now, before I go any further, I wish to point out something which
is very
basic to understanding the difference between Judaism and
Zionism and that
is that the orthodox Jewish concept of nationhood
is very different to the concept
of nationhood held by most peoples. 
Most peoples understand a nation to be a
specific people living in
a specific land.  The land is essential for the identity
of the nation.
They may or may not have a religion, but the religion is immaterial

to the national identity.  The orthodox Jewish concept of nationhood
is a specific people with a specific religion.  It is the religion
that establishes
the national identity.  They may or may not have a
land, the land is immaterial to
the Jewish national identity.  This is
borne out by the fact that the Jewish nation
has been without a land
for 2000 years, but as long as they retained their religion
they retained
their identity.

     Now I mentioned earlier that we were given a land but under
certain conditions.
 The conditions were basically that we had to
maintain the highest of moral, ethical
and religious standards.  The
Jewish People did have the land for approximately
the first one
thousand five hundred years of their existence.  However, regretfully,
the conditions were not fulfilled to the required degree and the Jews
were exiled
from their land.  For the last two thousand years or so
the Jewish people have been
in a state of exile decreed by the
A-lmighty because they did not maintain the
standards expected
of them.  This state of exile is the situation that exists right
up to
the present day.  It is a basic part of our belief to accept willingly the
Heavenly decree of exile and not to try and fight against it or to
end it by our
own hands.  To do so would constitute a rebellion
against the wishes of the

     In practical terms, although we have maintained our Jewish
identity by
virtue of our attachment to our religion, never the less
exile for us means firstly
that Jews must be loyal subjects of the
countries in which they live and not
attempt to rule over the
established indigenous populations of those countries.

     Secondly, that we may not attempt to set up a State of our own
in Palestine. 
This would apply even if the land would be unoccupied
and it certainly applies
when, as is the case, there is an existing
indigenous population.  This prohibition
is a basic part of our
teaching and we are forsworn not to contravene it and we
are warned
of the dire consequences of doing so.  It follows, therefore, that Jews

have no right to rule today in Palestine.

     ... The practical outcome of Zionism in the form of the State
known as 'Israel'
is completely alien to Judaism and the Jewish Faith.
The very name "Israel"
which originally meant what are known as
the Children of Israel i.e. the Jewish
People was usurped by the
Zionists.  For this reason many orthodox Jews avoid
referring to
the Zionist State by the name 'Israel'.

     The ideology of Zionism is not to rely on divine providence but
to take the
law into ones own hands and to try to force the outcome
in the form of a State.
 This is completely contrary to the approach
to the matter of exile which our
Torah requires us to adopt, as
handed down to us by our great religious teachers.

     I have spoken till now from the religious belief point of view.
But let us
consider the humanitarian point of view (and to do so
is also a religious
requirement as I mentioned earlier).  The
Zionist ideology was and is to force
the aim of a State irrespective
of the cost in life and property to anyone who
stands in the way. 
The Palestinians stood in the way.  We have a fact that in
to achieve an ill conceived nationalistic ambition, a shocking
of natural justice was committed by the Zionists
in setting up an illegitimate
regime in Palestine completely against
the wishes of the established population,
the Palestinians, which
inevitably had to be based on loss of life, killing and stealing.

     To sum up.  According to the Torah and Jewish faith, the
present Palestinian/
Arab claim to rule in Palestine is right and
just.  The Zionist claim is wrong and
criminal.  Our attitude to
Israel is that the whole concept is flawed and illegitimate.

     We have another problem and that is that the Zionists have
made themselves
to appear as the representatives and spokespeople
of all Jews thus, with their
actions, arousing animosity against the
Jews.  Those who harbor this animosity
are accused of anti-
Semitism.  However, what has to be made abundantly clear
is that
Zionism is not Judaism.  Zionists cannot speak in the name of Jews.
may have been born as Jews, but to be a Jew also requires
adherence to the Jewish
belief and religion. 

     So what becomes abundantly clear is that opposition to Zionism
and its crimes
does not imply hatred of Jews or 'anti-Semitism'. 
On the contrary Zionism itself
and its deeds are the biggest threat to
Jews and Judaism. ...  The strife between
Arab and Jew in Palestine
only began when the first Zionist pioneers came to
Palestine with
the express aim of forming a State over the heads of the indigenous

Arab population.  That strife has continued until this very day and
has cost and
continues to cost thousands and thousands of lives. 
The oppression, abuse and
murder in Palestine is a tragedy not only
for the Palestinians but for the Jewish
people as well.

     And is in fact part of the dire consequences of which we are
warned if we
transgress our religious requirement not to rebel
against our exile.  I wish to add
that the connection between
Muslims and Jews goes right back into ancient history.
the relationship was friendly and mutually beneficial.  Historically,
situation frequently was that when Jews were being persecuted
in Europe they
found refuge in the various Muslim countries.  Our
attitude to Muslims and
Arabs can only be one of friendliness and

     I would like to finish with the following words.  We want to tell
the world,
especially our Muslim neighbours, that there is no hatred
or animosity between
Jew and Muslim.  We wish to live together as
friends and neighbours as we have
done mostly over hundreds even
thousands of years in all the Arab countries. 
It was only the advent
of the Zionists and Zionism which upset this age old
e consider the Palestinians as the people with the right to govern

in Palestine.  The Zionist State known as "Israel" is a regime that
has no right
to exist.  Its continuing existence is the underlying
cause of the strife in Palestine.

     We pray for a solution to the terrible and tragic impasse that exists.
based on results brought about by moral, political and
economic pressures
imposed by the nations of the world.

     We pray for an end to bloodshed and an end to the suffering of
all innocent
people - Jew and non-Jew alike - worldwide.  We are
waiting for the annulment
of Zionism and the dismantling of the
Zionist regime, which will bring about
an end to the suffering of
the Palestinian people.  We would welcome the
opportunity to
dwell in peace in the holy land under a rule which is entirely in

accordance with the wishes and aspirations of the Palestinian
People.  May we
soon merit the time when all mankind will be at
peace with each other.

     Another voice of reason and bearer of light, Rabbi Sholem Dov Ber Schneerson:
Even if the Zionists were G-d fearing Torah true Jews, and even
if we had reason to believe      that their goal is feasible, we are
nevertheless not permitted to join them in bringing our redemption
with our own strength.  We are not even permitted to force a
premature redemption by showering the Almighty with insistent
entreaties ... and certainly not by means of physical force and devices;
We may not end our exile by main force: we will not thereby, achieve
the spiritual redemption for which we are waiting.  The Zionist
notion contradicts our hope and yearning that G-d himself' will not
bring about our Redemption.  To insure a permanent Redemption
from our present exile, we must hope and wait for a deliverance by
the Almighty Himself, and not through the hands of one of flesh
and blood.  Thus only will our redemption be complete.       

The following is a speech delivered in 1961 by Benjamin H. Freedman at 
the Willard Hotel, Washington, D.C.  Born in 1890, he was a successful 
businessman and at one time principal owner of the Woodbury Soap Co.
In 1945 he had broke with organized Jewry, spending the balance of his 
life and much of his wealth exposing the Zionist menace.  He knew whereof
he spoke, having been personally acquainted with Bernard Baruch, Samuel
Untermyer, Woodrow Wilson, Franklin Roosevelt, Joseph Kennedy, 
John F. Kennedy, etc.
Here in the United States, the Zionists and their co-religionists
have complete control of our government. For many reasons, 
too many and too complex to go into here at this time, the 
Zionists and their co-religionists rule these United States as 
though they were the absolute monarchs of this country.  Now 
you may say that is a very broad statement, but let me show 
you what happened while we were all asleep.
What happened? World War I broke out in the summer of 1914.
There are few people here my age who remember that.  Now that
war was waged on one side by Great Britain, France, and Russia;
and on the other side by Germany, Austria-Hungary, and Turkey.
Within two years Germany had won that war: not only won it 
nominally, but won it actually. The German submarines, which 
were a surprise to the world, had swept all the convoys from the 
Atlantic Ocean.  Great Britain stood there without ammunition 
for her soldiers, with one week's food supply -- and after that, 
starvation.  At that time, the French army had mutinied. They 
had lost 600,000 of the flower of French youth in the defense 
of Verdun on the Somme.  The Russian army was defecting, 
they were picking up their toys and going home, they didn't want
to play war anymore, they didn't like the Czar.  And the Italian 
army had collapsed.
Not a shot had been fired on German soil.  Not one enemy soldier
had crossed the border into Germany.  And yet, Germany was 
offering England peace terms.  They offered England a negotiated 
peace on what the lawyers call a status quo ante basis. That means:
"Let's call the war off, and let everything be as it was before the war
started."  England, in the summer of 1916 was considering that -- 
seriously.  They had no choice.  It was either accepting this negotiated
peace that Germany was magnanimously offering them, or going
on with the war and being totally defeated.
While that was going on, the Zionists in Germany, who represented
the Zionists from Eastern Europe, went to the British War Cabinet
and -- I am going to be brief because it's a long story, but I have all
the documents to prove any statement that I make -- they said: 
"Look here.  You can yet win this war.  You don't have to give up. 
You don't have to accept the negotiated peace offered to you now 
by Germany.  You can win this war if the United States will come in
as your ally."  The United States was not in the war at that time.  We
were fresh; we were young; we were rich; we were powerful.  They told
England: "We will guarantee to bring the United States into the war 
as your ally, to fight with you on your side, if you will promise us 
Palestine after you win the war." 
In other words, they made this deal: "We will get the United States 
into this war as your ally.  The price you must pay is Palestine after 
you have won the war and defeated Germany, Austria-Hungary, and
Turkey."  Now England had as much right to promise Palestine to 
anybody, as the United States would have to promise Japan to 
Ireland for any reason whatsoever.  It's absolutely absurd that Great 
Britain, that never had any connection or any interest or any right
in what is known as Palestine should offer it as coin of the realm to 
pay the Zionists for bringing the United States into the war.  However, 
they did make that promise, in October of 1916. And shortly after 
that -- I don't know how many here remember it -- the United 
States, which was almost totally pro-German, entered the war as 
Britain's ally.
I say that the United States was almost totally pro-German because
the newspapers here were controlled by Jews, the bankers were Jews,
all the media of mass communications in this country were controlled
by Jews; and they, the Jews, were pro-German.  They were pro-
German because many of them had come from Germany, and also they 
wanted to see Germany lick the Czar.  The Jews didn't like the Czar, and
they didn't want Russia to win this war.  These German-Jew bankers, 
like Kuhn Loeb and the other big banking firms in the United States
refused to finance France or England to the extent of one dollar.  They
stood aside and they said: "As long as France and England are tied 
up with Russia, not one cent!"  But they poured money into Germany, 
they fought beside Germany against Russia, trying to lick the Czarist 
Now those same Jews, when they saw the possibility of getting Palestine,
went to England and they made this deal. At that time, everything 
changed, like a traffic light that changes from red to green. Where the
newspapers had been all pro-German, where they'd been telling the 
people of the difficulties that Germany was having fighting Great 
Britain commercially and in other respects, all of a sudden the Germans 
were no good.  They were villains.  They were Huns.  They were shooting
Red Cross nurses.  They were cutting off babies' hands.  They were no 
good.  Shortly after that, Mr. Wilson declared war on Germany.
The Zionists in London had sent cables to the United States, to 
Justice Brandeis, saying "Go to work on President Wilson.  We're 
getting from England what we want.  Now you go to work on President 
Wilson and get the United States into the war."  That's how the 
United States got into the war.  We had no more interest in it; we 
had no more right to be in it than we have to be on the moon tonight
instead of in this room.  There was absolutely no reason for World
War I to be our war.  We were railroaded into -- if I can be vulgar,
we were suckered into -- that war merely so that the Zionists of 
the world could obtain Palestine.  That is something that the people 
of the United States have never been told.  They never knew why 
we went into World War I.
After we got into the war, the Zionists went to Great Britain and 
they said: "Well, we performed our part of the agreement.  Let's 
have something in writing that shows that you are going to keep 
your bargain and give us Palestine after you win the war." They 
didn't know whether the war would last another year or another 
ten years.  So they started to work out a receipt.  The receipt took 
the form of a letter, which was worded in very cryptic language so 
that the world at large wouldn't know what it was all about.  And 
that was called the Balfour Declaration.
The Balfour Declaration was merely Great Britain's promise to
pay the Zionists what they had agreed upon as a consideration 
for getting the United States into the war.  So this great Balfour 
Declaration, that you hear so much about, is just as phony as a 
three dollar bill.  I don't think I could make it more emphatic 
than that.
That is where all the trouble started.  The United States got in 
the war.  The United States crushed Germany. You know what 
happened.  When the war ended, and the Germans went to Paris 
for the Paris Peace Conference in 1919 there were 117 Jews 
there, as a delegation representing the Jews, headed by Bernard
Baruch.  I was there: I ought to know.
Now what happened? The Jews at that peace conference, when 
they were cutting up Germany and parceling out Europe to all 
these nations who claimed a right to a certain part of European 
territory, said, "How about Palestine for us?" And they produced, 
for the first time to the knowledge of the Germans, this Balfour
Declaration.  So the Germans, for the first time realized, "Oh, 
so that was the game! That's why the United States came into the 
war."  The Germans for the first time realized that they were 
defeated, they suffered the terrific reparations that were slapped 
onto them, because the Zionists wanted Palestine and were 
determined to get it at any cost.
That brings us to another very interesting point. When the 
Germans realized this, they naturally resented it. Up to that 
time, the Jews had never been better off in any country in the 
world than they had been in Germany.  You had Mr. Rathenau
there, who was maybe 100 times as important in industry and 
finance as is Bernard Baruch in this country.  You had Mr. Balin,
who owned the two big steamship lines, the North German 
Lloyd's and the Hamburg-American Lines. You had Mr. 
Bleichroder, who was the banker for the Hohenzollern family. 
You had the Warburgs in Hamburg, who were the big merchant
bankers -- the biggest in the world. The Jews were doing very 
well in Germany.  No question about that.  The Germans felt: 
"Well, that was quite a sellout."
It was a sellout that might be compared to this hypothetical 
situation: Suppose the United States was at war with the Soviet 
Union.   And we were winning. And we told the Soviet Union: 
"Well, let's quit.  We offer you peace terms.  Let's forget the whole
thing."  And all of a sudden Red China came into the war as an
ally of the Soviet Union.  And throwing them into the war 
brought about our defeat.  A crushing defeat, with reparations the 
likes of which man's imagination cannot encompass.  Imagine, then,
after that defeat, if we found out that it was the Chinese in this 
country, our Chinese citizens, who all the time we had thought 
were loyal citizens working with us, were selling us out to the Soviet
Union and that it was through them that Red China was brought 
into the war against us.  How would we feel, then, in the United 
States against Chinese?  I don't think that one of them would dare
show his face on any street.  There wouldn't be enough convenient
lampposts to take care of them.  Imagine how we would feel.
Well, that's how the Germans felt towards these Jews.  They'd been
so nice to them: from 1905 on, when the first Communist revolution 
in Russia failed, and the Jews had to scramble out of Russia, they all
went to Germany.  And Germany gave them refuge. And they were 
treated very nicely.  And here they had sold Germany down the river
for no reason at all other than the fact that they wanted Palestine 
as a so-called "Jewish commonwealth."
Now Nahum Sokolow, and all the great leaders and great names 
that you read about in connection with Zionism today, in 1919,
1920, 1921, 1922, and 1923 wrote in all their papers -- and the
press was filled with their statements -- that the feeling against 
the Jews in Germany is due to the fact that they realized that this 
great defeat was brought about by Jewish intercession in bringing 
the United States into the war.  The Jews themselves admitted that.
It wasn't that the Germans in 1919 discovered that a glass of Jewish
blood tasted better than Coca-Cola or Muenschner Beer. There 
was no religious feeling.  There was no sentiment against those 
people merely on account of their religious belief.  It was all 
political.  It was economic.  It was anything but religious.  Nobody
cared in Germany whether a Jew went home and pulled down the 
shades and said "Shema 'Yisroel" or "Our Father."  Nobody cared
in Germany any more than they do in the United States.  Now this
feeling that developed later in Germany was due to one thing: the
Germans held the Jews responsible for their crushing defeat.
And World War I had been started against Germany for no reason
for which Germany was responsible. They were guilty of nothing.
Only of being successful.  They built up a big navy.  They built
up world trade.  You must remember that Germany at the time 
of the French Revolution consisted of 300 small city-states, 
principalities, dukedoms, and so forth.  Three hundred separate
little political entities.  And between that time, between the times
of Napoleon and Bismarck, they were consolidated into one state.
And within 50 years they became one of the world's great powers. 
Their navy was rivaling Great Britain's, they were doing business
all over the world, they could undersell anybody, they could make
better products. What happened as a result of that?
There was a conspiracy between England, France, and Russia to
slap down Germany. There isn't one historian in the world who 
can find a valid reason why those three countries decided to wipe
Germany off the map politically.
When Germany realized that the Jews were responsible for her 
defeat, they naturally resented it.  But not a hair on the head of 
any Jew was harmed.  Not a single hair.  Professor Tansill, of 
Georgetown University, who had access to all the secret papers 
of the State Department, wrote in his book, and quoted from a 
State Department document written by Hugo Schoenfelt, a 
Jew whom Cordell Hull sent to Europe in 1933 to investigate 
the so-called camps of political prisoners, who wrote back that 
he found them in very fine condition.  They were in excellent 
shape, with everybody treated well.  And they were filled with
Communists.  Well, a lot of them were Jews, because the Jews 
happened to comprise about 98 per cent of the Communists 
in Europe at that time.  And there were some priests there, 
and ministers, and labor leaders, and Masons, and others who
had international affiliations.
Some background is in order: In 1918-1919 the Communists 
took over Bavaria for a few days.  Rosa Luxemburg and Karl 
Liebknecht and a group of other Jews took over the government
for three days.  In fact, when the Kaiser ended the war he fled
to Holland because he thought the Communists were going to 
take over Germany as they did Russia and that he was going to
meet the same fate as the Czar.  So he fled to Holland for safety, 
for security.  After the Communist threat in Germany was 
quashed, the Jews were still working, trying to get back into 
their former status, and the Germans fought them in every way
they could without hurting a single hair on anyone's head. 
They fought them the same way that, in this country, the 
Prohibitionists fought anyone who was interested in liquor.
They didn't fight one another with pistols.  Well, that's the way 
they were fighting the Jews in Germany.  And at that time, 
mind you, there were 80 to 90 million Germans, and there 
were only 460,000 Jews.  About one half of one per cent of 
the population of Germany were Jews.  And yet they controlled
all the press, and they controlled most of the economy 
because they had come in with cheap money when the mark 
was devalued and bought up practically everything.
The Jews tried to keep a lid on this fact.  They didn't want the
world to really understand that they had sold out Germany, 
and that the Germans resented that.
The Germans took appropriate action against the Jews.  They, 
shall I say, discriminated against them wherever they could. 
They shunned them.  The same way that we would shun the 
Chinese, or the Negroes, or the Catholics, or anyone in this 
country who had sold us out to an enemy and brought about 
our defeat.
After a while, the Jews of the world called a meeting in 
Amsterdam.  Jews from every country in the world attended 
this meeting in July 1933.  And they said to Germany: "You 
fire Hitler, and you put every Jew back into his former position,
whether he was a Communist or no matter what he was.  You
can't treat us that way.  And we, the Jews of the world, are 
serving an ultimatum upon you."  You can imagine what the
Germans told them. So what did the Jews do?
In 1933, when Germany refused to surrender to the world 
conference of Jews in Amsterdam, the conference broke up, 
and Mr. Samuel Untermyer, who was the head of the American
delegation and the president of the whole conference, came
to the United States and went from the steamer to the studios
of the Columbia Broadcasting System and made a radio 
broadcast throughout the United States in which he in effect 
said, "The Jews of the world now declare a Holy War against 
Germany.  We are now engaged in a sacred conflict against 
the Germans.  And we are going to starve them into surrender.
We are going to use a world-wide boycott against them.  That
will destroy them because they are dependent upon their export
And it is a fact that two thirds of Germany's food supply had
to be imported, and it could only be imported with the proceeds
of what they exported.  So if Germany could not export, two 
thirds of Germany's population would have to starve.  There 
was just not enough food for more than one third of the population.
Now in this declaration, which I have here, and which was 
printed in the New York Times on August 7, 1933, Mr. Samuel 
Untermyer boldly stated that "this economic boycott is our means
of self-defense.  President Roosevelt has advocated its use in the
National Recovery Administration," which some of you may 
remember, where everybody was to be boycotted unless he followed
the rules laid down by the New Deal, and which was declared 
unconstitutional by the Supreme Court of that time.  Nevertheless,
the Jews of the world declared a boycott against Germany, and 
it was so effective that you couldn't find one thing in any store 
anywhere in the world with the words "Made in Germany" on 
it.  In fact, an executive of the Woolworth Company told me that
they had to dump millions of dollars worth of crockery and dishes
into the river; that their stores were boycotted if anyone came in
and found a dish marked "made in Germany," they were picketed
with signs saying "Hitler," "murderer," and so forth, something 
like these sit-ins that are taking place in the South.
At a store belonging to the R. H. Macy chain, which was controlled
by a family called Strauss who also happen to be Jews, a woman 
found stockings there which came from Chemnitz, marked "Made
in Germany." Well, they were cotton stockings and they may have 
been there 20 years, since I've been observing women's legs for 
many years and it's been a long time since I've seen any cotton 
stockings on them.  I saw Macy's boycotted, with hundreds of 
people walking around with signs saying "murderers," "Hitlerites,"
and so forth.
Now up to that time, not one hair on the head of any Jew had been
hurt in Germany.  There was no suffering, there was no starvation,
there was no murder, there was nothing.
Naturally, the Germans said, "Who are these people to declare a 
boycott against us and throw all our people out of work, and make 
our industries come to a standstill?  Who are they to do that to us?"
They naturally resented it.  Certainly they painted swastikas on 
stores owned by Jews.  Why should a German go in and give his 
money to a storekeeper who was part of a boycott that was going 
to starve Germany into surrendering to the Jews of the world, who
were going to dictate who their premier or chancellor was to be? 
Well, it was ridiculous.
The boycott continued for some time, but it wasn't until 1938, 
when a young Jew from Poland walked into the German embassy 
in Paris and shot a German official, that the Germans really 
started to get rough with the Jews in Germany.  And you found 
them then breaking windows and having street fights and so forth.
Now I don't like to use the word "anti-Semitism" because it's 
meaningless, but it means something to you still, so I'll have to 
use it.  The only reason that there was any feeling in Germany 
against Jews was that they were responsible for World War I 
and for this world-wide boycott.  Ultimately they were also 
responsible for World War II, because after this thing got out 
of hand, it was absolutely necessary for the Jews and Germany 
to lock horns in a war to see which one was going to survive. 
In the meanwhile, I had lived in Germany, and I knew that the
Germans had decided that Europe is going to be Christian or 
Communist: there is no in between.  And the Germans decided
they were going to keep it Christian if possible.  And they started
to re-arm.  In November 1933 the United States recognized 
the Soviet Union.  The Soviet Union was becoming very powerful,
and Germany realized that "Our turn was going to come soon, 
unless we are strong."  The same as we in this country are saying
today, "Our turn is going to come soon, unless we are strong." 
Our government is spending 83 or 84 billion dollars for defense.
Defense against whom? Defense against 40,000 little Jews in 
Moscow that took over Russia, and then, in their devious ways, 
took over control of many other countries of the world.
For this country now to be on the verge of a Third World War, 
from which we cannot emerge a victor, is something that staggers
my imagination.  I know that nuclear bombs are measured in terms
of megatons.  A megaton is a term used to describe one million 
tons of TNT.  Our nuclear bombs had a capacity of 10 megatons,
or 10 million tons of TNT, when they were first developed.  Now, 
the nuclear bombs that are being developed have a capacity of 200
megatons, and God knows how many megatons the nuclear bombs 
of the Soviet Union have.
What do we face now?  If we trigger a world war that may develop 
into a nuclear war, humanity is finished.  Why might such a war 
take place?  It will take place as the curtain goes up on Act 3: Act 1 
was World War I, Act 2 was World War II, Act 3 is going to be 
World War III.  The Jews of the world, the Zionists and their co-
religionists everywhere, are determined that they are going to again
use the United States to help them permanently retain Palestine
as their foothold for their world government.  That is just as true
as I am standing here.  Not alone have I read it, but many here have
also read it, and it is known all over the world.
What are we going to do?  The life you save may be your son's.  Your
boys may be on their way to that war tonight; and you don't know it
any more than you knew that in 1916 in London the Zionists made 
a deal with the British War Cabinet to send your sons to war in Europe.
Did you know it at that time?  Not a person in the United States knew
it.  You weren't permitted to know it.  Who knew it? President 
Wilson knew it.  Colonel House knew it.  Other insiders knew it.
Did I know it? I had a pretty good idea of what was going on: I was
liaison to Henry Morgenthau, Sr., in the 1912 campaign when 
President Wilson was elected, and there was talk around the office
there.  I was "confidential man" to Henry Morgenthau, Sr., who 
was chairman of the Finance Committee, and I was liaison between
him and Rollo Wells, the treasurer.  So I sat in these meetings 
with President Wilson at the head of the table, and all the others, 
and I heard them drum into President Wilson's brain the graduated
income tax and what has become the Federal Reserve, and I heard
them indoctrinate him with the Zionist movement.  Justice 
Brandeis and President Wilson were just as close as the two fingers
on this hand.  President Woodrow Wilson was just as incompetent 
when it came to determining what was going on as a newborn baby.
That is how they got us into World War I, while we all slept. They
sent our boys over there to be slaughtered.  For what? So the Jews 
can have Palestine as their "commonwealth."  They've fooled you 
so much that you don't know whether you're coming or going.
Now any judge, when he charges a jury, says, "Gentlemen, any 
witness who you find has told a single lie, you can disregard all 
his testimony." I don't know what state you come from, but in 
New York state that is the way a judge addresses a jury.  If that 
witness told one lie, disregard his testimony.
What are the facts about the Jews? (I call them Jews to you, 
because they are known as "Jews". I don't call them Jews myself. 
I refer to them as "so-called Jews", because I know what they are). 
The eastern European Jews, who form 92 per cent of the world's 
population of those people who call themselves "Jews", were 
originally Khazars.  They were a warlike tribe who lived deep in 
the heart of Asia.  And they were so warlike that even the Asiatics
drove them out of Asia into eastern Europe.  They set up a large
Khazar kingdom of 800,000 square miles.  At the time, Russia
did not exist, nor did many other European countries.  The 
Khazar kingdom was the biggest country in all Europe -- so 
big and so powerful that when the other monarchs wanted to
go to war, the Khazars would lend them 40,000 soldiers.  That's 
how big and powerful they were.
They were phallic worshippers, which is filthy and I do not want 
to go into the details of that now.  But that was their religion, as it 
was also the religion of many other pagans and barbarians elsewhere
in the world.  The Khazar king became so disgusted with the 
degeneracy of his kingdom that he decided to adopt a so-called 
monotheistic faith -- either Christianity, Islam, or what is known
today as Judaism, which is really Talmudism. By spinning a top,
and calling out "eeny, meeny, miney, moe," he picked out so-called
Judaism.  And that became the state religion.  He sent down to 
the Talmudic schools of Pumbedita and Sura and brought up 
thousands of rabbis, and opened up synagogues and schools, and
his people became what we call "Jews".
There wasn't one of them who had an ancestor who ever put a toe 
in the Holy Land.  Not only in Old Testament history, but back to
the beginning of time.  Not one of them!  And yet they come to 
the Christians and ask us to support their armed insurrections in
Palestine by saying, "You want to help repatriate God's Chosen 
People to their Promised Land, their ancestral home, don't you? 
It's your Christian duty.  We gave you one of our boys as your Lord
and Savior.  You now go to church on Sunday, and you kneel and 
you worship a Jew, and we're Jews."
But they are pagan Khazars who were converted just the same as
the Irish were converted.  It is as ridiculous to call them "people 
of the Holy Land," as it would be to call the 54 million Chinese
Moslems "Arabs."  Mohammed only died in 620 A.D., and since
then 54 million Chinese have accepted Islam as their religious 
belief.  Now imagine, in China, 2,000 miles away from Arabia, 
from Mecca and Mohammed's birthplace.  Imagine if the 54 
million Chinese decided to call themselves "Arabs." You would 
say they were lunatics.  Anyone who believes that those 54 million
Chinese are Arabs must be crazy.  All they did was adopt as a 
religious faith a belief that had its origin in Mecca, in Arabia.  
The same as the Irish.  When the Irish became Christians, 
nobody dumped them in the ocean and imported to the Holy 
Land a new crop of inhabitants.  They hadn't become a different
people.  They were the same people, but they had accepted 
Christianity as a religious faith.
These Khazars, these pagans, these Asiatics, these Turko-Finns,
were a Mongoloid race who were forced out of Asia into eastern
Europe.  Because their king took the Talmudic faith, they had no
choice in the matter.  Just the same as in Spain: If the king was 
Catholic, everybody had to be a Catholic.  If not, you had to get 
out of Spain.  So the Khazars became what we call today "Jews".
Now imagine how silly it was for the great Christian countries 
of the world to say, "We're going to use our power and prestige
to repatriate God's Chosen People to their ancestral homeland, 
their Promised Land."  Could there be a bigger lie than that? 
Because they control the newspapers, the magazines, the radio, 
the television, the book publishing business, and because they 
have the ministers in the pulpit and the politicians on the 
soapboxes talking the same language, it is not too surprising 
that you believe that lie.  You'd believe black is white if you 
heard it often enough.  You wouldn't call black black anymore --
you'd start to call black white.  And nobody could blame you. 
That is one of the great lies of history.   It is the foundation of 
all the misery that has befallen the world.
Do you know what Jews do on the Day of Atonement, that you 
think is so sacred to them?  I was one of them.  This is not hearsay.
I'm not here to be a rabble-rouser.  I'm here to give you facts. 
When, on the Day of Atonement, you walk into a synagogue, 
you stand up for the very first prayer that you recite.  It is the
only prayer for which you stand.  You repeat three times a short
prayer called the Kol Nidre  Kol Nidre. 

In that prayer, you enter into an agreement with God Almighty
that any oath, vow, or pledge that you may make during the next 
twelve months shall be null and void.  The oath shall not be an 
oath; the vow shall not be a vow; the pledge shall not be a pledge.
They shall have no force or effect.  And further, the Talmud 
teaches that whenever you take an oath, vow, or pledge, you are 
to remember the Kol Nidre prayer that you recited on the Day of
Atonement, and you are exempted from fulfilling them.  How 
much can you depend on their loyalty?  You can depend upon 
their loyalty as much as the Germans depended upon it in 1916.
We are going to suffer the same fate as Germany suffered, and 
for the same reason.

THE JEWS OF IRAQ (abridged)

By Naeim Giladi

     In his book, Ben Gurion's Scandals: How the Haganah & the Mossad
Jews, Giladi presents the evidence of Zionist atrocities. 
Needless to say, he couldn't get his book published in Israel, but then
neither could he find a publisher here in the US. 

     I write this article for the same reason I wrote my book: to tell
the American people, and especially American Jews, that Jews from
Islamic lands did not emigrate willingly to Israel; that,  to force them
to leave, Jews killed Jews; and that, to buy time to confiscate ever
more Arab lands, Jews on numerous occasions rejected genuine peace
initiatives from their Arab neighbors.  I write about what the first
prime minister of Israel called "cruel Zionism."  I write about it
because I was part of it.

     My ancestors had settled in Iraq more than 2,600 years ago-600
years before Christianity, and 1,200 years before Islam. I am descended
from Jews who built the tomb of Yehezkel, a Jewish prophet of pre-
biblical times.  My town, where I was born in 1929, is Hillah, not far
from the ancient site of Babylon.

     I did not volunteer the information to my father that I had joined
the Zionist underground.  He  found out several months before I was
arrested when he saw me writing Hebrew and using words and
expressions unfamiliar to him.  He was even more surprised to
learn that, yes, I had decided I would soon move to Israel myself.  
He was scornful. "You'll come back with your tail between your
legs," he predicted.

     About 125,000 Jews left Iraq for Israel in the late 1940s and into
1952, most because they had been lied to and put into a panic by what
I came to learn were Zionist bombs.  But my mother and father
were among the 6,000 who did not go to Israel.  Although physically
I never did return to Iraq-that bridge had been burned in any event
- my heart has made the journey there many, many times. My father
had it right.

     I made my way to the new state of Israel, arriving in May, 1950.  My
passport had my name in Arabic and English, but the English couldn't
capture the "kh" sound, so it was rendered simply as Klaski. At the
border, the immigration people applied the English version, which had
an Eastern European, Ashkenazi ring to it.  In one way, this "mistake"
was my key to discovering very soon just how the Israeli caste system worked.

     When I reported to the Labor Office in al-Majdal, they saw that
I could read and write Arabic and Hebrew and they said that I could
find a good-paying job with the Military Governor's office.  The Arabs
were under the authority of these Israeli Military Governors.  A clerk
handed me a bunch of forms in Arabic and Hebrew.  Now it dawned
on me.  Before Israel could establish its farmers' city, it had to rid al-
Majdal of its indigenous Palestinians.  The forms were petitions to
the United Nations Inspectors asking for transfer out of Israel to
Gaza, which was under Egyptian control.

     I read over the petition. In signing, the Palestinian would be saying
that he was of sound mind and body and was making the request for
transfer free of pressure or duress.  Of course, there was no way that
they would leave without being pressured to do so.  These families
had been there hundreds of years, as farmers, primitive artisans,
weavers.  The Military Governor prohibited them from pursuing
their livelihoods, just penned them up until they lost hope of
resuming their normal lives.  That's when they signed to leave.

   I was there and heard their grief. "Our hearts are in pain when
we look at the orange trees that we planted with our own hands.  
Please let us go, let us give water to those trees.  God will not be
pleased with us if we leave His trees untended."  I asked the
Military Governor to give them relief, but he said, "No, we want
them to leave."   

     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

     My activism in Israel began shortly after I received a letter from
the Socialist/Zionist Party asking me to help with their Arabic
newspaper.  When I showed up at their offices at Central House in
Tel Aviv, I asked around to see just where I should report.  I showed
the letter to a couple of people there and, without even looking at it,
they would motion me away with the words, "Room No. 8." When I
saw that they weren't even reading the letter, I inquired of several
others.  But the response was the same, "Room No. 8," with not a
glance at the paper I put in front of them.

     So I went to Room 8 and saw that it was the Department of Jews
from Islamic Countries.  I was disgusted and angry.  Either I am a
member of the party or I'm not.  Do I have a different ideology or
different politics because I am an Arab Jew?  It's segregation, I
thought, just like a Negroes' Department.  I turned around and
walked out.  That was the start of my open protests.  That same
year I organized a demonstration in Ashkelon against Ben Gurion's
racist policies and 10,000 people turned out.

     There wasn't much opportunity for those of us who were second
class citizens to do much about it when Israel was on a war footing
with outside enemies.  After the 1967 war, I was in the Army myself
and served in the Sinai when there was continued fighting along the
Suez Canal.  But the cease-fire with Egypt in 1970 gave us our opening.
We took to the streets and organized politically to demand equal rights. 
If it's our country, if we were expected to risk our lives in a border war,
then we expected equal treatment.

     We mounted the struggle so tenaciously and received so much
publicity that the Israeli government tried to discredit our movement
by calling us "Israel's Black Panthers."  They were thinking in racist
terms, really, in assuming the Israeli public would reject an organization
whose ideology was being compared to that of radical blacks in the
United States.  But we saw that what we were doing was no different
than what blacks in the United States were fighting against - segregation,
discrimination, unequal treatment.  Rather than reject the label, we
adopted it proudly.  I had posters of Martin Luther King, Malcolm X,
Nelson Mandela and other civil rights activists plastered all over my

     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:

     In attempts to portray the Iraqis as anti-American and to terrorize
the Jews, the Zionists planted bombs in the U.S. Information Service
library and in synagogues.  Soon leaflets began to appear urging Jews to
flee to Israel. . . . Although the Iraqi police later provided our embassy
with evidence to show that the synagogue and library bombings, as well
as the anti-Jewish and anti-American leaflet campaigns, had been the
work of an underground Zionist organization, most of the world believed
reports that Arab terrorism had motivated the flight of the Iraqi Jews
whom the Zionists had "rescued" really just in order to increase Israel's
Jewish population."

     Eveland doesn't detail the evidence linking the Zionists to the attacks,
but in my book I do.  In1955, 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

     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

* 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.

     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.

     After the Israeli attack on the Jordanian village of Qibya in
October, 1953, Ben Gurion went into voluntary exile at the Sedeh
Boker kibbutz in the Negev.  The Labor party then used to organize
many buses for people to go visit him there, where they would see
the former prime minister working with sheep.  But that was only
for show.  Really he was writing his diary and continuing to be
active behind the scenes.  I went on such a tour.

     We were told not to try to speak to Ben Gurion, but when I saw
him, I asked why, since Israel is a democracy with a parliament, does
it not have a constitution? Ben Gurion said, "Look, boy"-I was 24
at the time - "if we have a constitution, we have to write in it the
border of our country.  And this is not our border, my dear." I asked,
"Then where is the border?"  He said, "Wherever the Sahal will
come, this is the border."  Sahal is the Israeli army.   

     Ben Gurion told the world that Israel accepted the partition and
the Arabs rejected it.  Then Israel took half of the land that was
promised to the Arab state.  And still he was saying it was not
enough.  Israel needed more land.  How can a country make peace
with its neighbors if it wants to take their land?  How can a country
demand to be secure if it won't say what borders it will be satisfied
with?  For such a country, peace would be an inconvenience.

     I know now that from the beginning many Arab leaders wanted
to make peace with Israel, butIsrael always refused.  Ben Gurion
covered this up with propaganda.  He said that the Arabs wanted
to drive Israel into the sea and he called Gamal Abdel Nasser the
Hitler of the Middle East whose foremost intent was to destroy
Israel.  He wanted America and Great Britain to treat Nasser
like a pariah.

     In 1954, it seemed that America was getting less critical of
Nasser.  Then during a three-week period in July, several terrorist
bombs were set off: at the United States Information Agency
offices in Cairo and Alexandria, a British-owned theater, and
the central post office in Cairo.  An attempt to firebomb a cinema
in Alexandria failed when the bomb went off in the pocket of one
of the perpetrators.  That led to the discovery that the terrorists
were not anti-Western Egyptians, but were instead Israeli spies
bent on souring the warming relationship between Egypt and the
United States in what came to be known as the Lavon Affair.

     Ben Gurion was still living on his kibbutz.  Moshe Sharett as
prime minister was in contact with Abdel Nasser through the offices
of Lord Maurice Orbach of Great Britain.  Sharett asked Nasser to
be lenient with the captured spies, and Nasser did all that was in
his power to prevent a deterioration of the situation between the
two countries.

     Then Ben Gurion returned as Defense Minister in February,
1955.  Later that month Israeli troops attacked Egyptian military
camps and Palestinian refugees in Gaza, killing 54 and injuring
many more.  The very night of the attack, Lord Orbach was on his
way to deliver a message to Nasser, but was unable to get through
because of the military action.  When Orbach telephoned, Nasser's
secretary told him that the attack proved that Israel did not want
peace and that he was wasting his time as a mediator.

     In November, Ben Gurion announced in the Knesset that he was
willing to meet with Abdel Nasser anywhere and at any time for the
sake of peace and understanding.  The next morning the Israeli
military attacked an Egyptian military camp in the Sabaha region.

     Although Nasser felt pessimistic about achieving peace with
Israel, he continued to send other mediators to try.  One was through
the American Friends Service Committee; another via the Prime
Minister of Malta, Dom Minthoff; and still another through Marshall
Tito of Yugoslavia.

     One that looked particularly promising was through Dennis
Hamilton, editor of The London Times. Nasser told Hamilton that
if only he could sit and talk with Ben Gurion for two or three
hours, they would be able to settle the conflict and end the state of
war between the two countries.  When word of this reached Ben
Gurion, he arranged to meet with Hamilton.  They decided to
pursue the matter with the Israeli ambassador in London, Arthur
Luria, as liaison.  On Hamilton's third trip to Egypt, Nasser met
him with the text of a Ben Gurion speech stating that Israel would
not give up an inch of land and would not take back a single refugee.
Hamilton knew that Ben Gurion with his mouth had undermined
a peace mission and missed an opportunity to settle the Israeli-
Arab conflict.

     Nasser was not the only Arab leader who wanted to make peace
with Israel.  There were many others.  Brigadier General Abdel
Karim Qasem, before he seized power in Iraq in July, 1958, headed
an underground organization that sent a delegation to Israel to
make a secret agreement.  Ben Gurion refused even to see him. 
I learned about this when I was a journalist in Israel.  But whenever
I tried to publish even a small part of it, the censor would stamp it
"Not Allowed."

     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

     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

     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.
