At 6:11 p.m. in Washington on May 14, 1948, President Harry Truman, a Freemason, Knights Templar and Southern Baptist, announced the U.S. government's recognition of the state of Israel, which was all of 11 minutes old. Turning to an aide, the president said: "The old doctor will believe me now," referring to Chaim Weizmann, the chemist and longtime champion of a Jewish homeland who would go on to be elected the nascent country's first president.
As Allis and Ronald Radosh note in "A Safe Haven," their revelatory account of Truman's vital contributions to Israel's founding, Weizmann would have had good reason to be skeptical of American support: Truman's announcement "stunned everyone," but the "most surprised" of all was the U.S. delegation to the United Nations. The State Department, after all, was fiercely opposed to the establishment of a Jewish state, as were the Defense Department and America's British allies. The story of how President Truman resisted pressures both in and out of government to ignore or undermine the aborning state of Israel is told by the Radoshes with an elegance informed by thorough research.
In particular, "A Safe Haven" brings vividly to life the parlous status of Jews around the world in the aftermath of World War II. They had been slaughtered in their millions in the gas chambers and ravines of Europe, but hundreds of thousands of Jews had been freed from death camps and ghettoes or had alighted in other countries during wartime. Since no country wanted to provide a home for these stateless refugees, the Zionist movement for a permanent Jewish home in the Middle East took on an almost feverish urgency.
Once again, the U.N. passed a resolution urging an “immediate, durable and fully respected cease-fire,” and for Israel to withdraw from Gaza after a 14-day air-and-ground offensive. The United States abstained. Noooo… really?
Anyway, don’t hold your breath!
Moments before the resolution was passed, Israeli warplanes dropped bombs on areas on the outskirts of Gaza, the main city in the north of the coastal strip. There was no immediate reaction from the Israeli (thugs) officials after the Security Council vote, but Israel had opposed the idea of a binding resolution. As a matter of fact, to date, Israel had violated over 59 UN resolutions!
When Hitler and the Nazis terrorized Europe, we sent the troops to liberate Europe from the Nazi thugs! And now we have something worse: Zionism. Did we not swear to “NEVER AGAIN” allow a Holocaust to happen?
What a bunch of hypocrites we are!
Orthodox Jews from the Naturei Karta group chant slogans as they march through the streets of Jerusalem’s Mea Sharim Orthodox Jewish neighborhood, calling for an end to Israel’s military operations in the Gaza Strip, Wednesday Jan. 7, 2009. Dozens of members of Neturei Karta, a group that opposes Zionism and the Israeli state, and supports close ties with Arabs, particularly Palestinians, demonstrated against the operations. READ THE SECOND SIGN: ISRAEL HAS NO RIGHT TO RULE OVER ANY PART OF PALESTINE!
These new Nazis are worse than the old ones. They have created a bigger Auschwitz in Palestine.
I just watched on ABC World News Tonight how 2 or 3 children who seemed missing, were found at some home after 4 days of searching. They were found next to their mother.. clinging to her… apparently for 4 days! The mother was dead. Killed by the barbaric Nazi regime of IsraHell.
THE KHAZAR EMPIRE AND ITS HERITAGE Arthur Koestler
Should this turn out to be the case, then the term “anti-Semitism” would become void of meaning, based on a misapprehension shared by both the killers and their victims. The story of the Khazar Empire, as it slowly emerges from the past, begins to look like the most cruel hoax which history has ever perpetrated.― Arthur Koestler, The Thirteenth Tribe; pg.17.

This book traces the history of the ancient Khazar Empire, a major but almost forgotten power in Eastern Europe, which in the Dark Ages became converted to Judaism. Khazaria was finally wiped out by the forces of Genghis Khan, but evidence indicates that the Khazars themselves migrated to Poland and formed the cradle of Western Jewry…
The Khazars’ sway extended from the Black Sea to the Caspian, from the Caucasus to the Volga, and they were instrumental in stopping the Muslim onslaught against Byzantium, the eastern jaw of the gigantic pincer movement that in the West swept across northern Africa and into Spain.
In the second part of this book, “The Heritage,” Mr. Koestler speculates about the ultimate faith of the Khazars and their impact on the racial composition and social heritage of modern Jewry. He produces a large body of meticulously detailed research in support of a theory that sounds all the more convincing for the restraint with which it is advanced. Yet should this theory be confirmed, the term “anti-Semitism” would become void of meaning, since, as Mr. Koestler writes, it is based “on a misapprehension shared by both the killers and their victims. The story of the Khazar Empire, as it slowly emerges from the past, begins to look like the most cruel hoax which history has ever perpetrated.”
