New website sets Zionist myths vs. the historical record

on 26 Comments

A pack of lies!”  the well-known pro-Israel activist yelled as he jostled his way to the front of the lecture hall to commandeer my meeting at London’s School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS). “A pack of lies! It’s undocumented! You won’t find any proper sources!” The event organizers paced helplessly. “How dare he!” A gesticulating finger scolded me. “He says that the Jewish Agency was against the Marshall Plan! I’ve never heard such a load of rubbish!” [see sample documents below regarding this load of rubbish]

Mr. Saboteur (who is well known here in London) is so adept at his craft that when Security arrived to ask him to desist or leave, he instead cowered Security into leaving.

“If that was the case,” our hijacker ranted on regarding Marshall and Reconstruction, “why has it not been revealed this far?! Why did it take an American violinist … an AMERICAN VIOLINIST! To reveal it?! Why?! … ANSWER MY QUESTION, YOU BASTARD!”

Actually, I was trying to respond — not to the part about ‘violinist’, but to tell the audience that the offending statements were derived from British government documents — but I was drowned out by the man yelling “Anti-Semitic dribble! Racist dribble!”

Zionist non-cooperation with post-war reconstruction (ultimately the Marshall Plan) began even as the war still raged. The earliest specific reference I have found is this document quoting Ben-Gurion dated 8th July, 1943, recording a meeting held three days earlier. As one settlement member explained, the Jewish Agency was afraid that with the improvement of conditions in Europe, the pressure for immigration to Palestine would subside. The Agency’s opposition to post-War Reconstruction caused the resignation of its only remaining non-Zionist member. Vocal Zionist opposition to the Marshall Plan continued after the Allied victory and was in the US news in mid-1948. Ben-Gurion’s “cooperation” with the war effort noted in this extract did not include Allied enlistment, but was limited to what served Zionism. The National Archives (Kew), FO 1093/330. Reproduced with permission.

Two months later, in July (1943), Ben-Gurion’s opposition to post-war Reconstruction is presented in context of dissenting voices. From: “Secret / Memorandum from the Government of Palestine / Running Diary of Political Developments in Palestine / From 1st May, 1943, until 31st December, 1944”. TNA, CO 733/456/4. Reproduced with permission.

Thus began a trail of accusations spanning both tabloids and ‘legitimate’ media. I was a hate speaker peddling anti-Semitic conspiracy theories. Complaints were filed with SOAS, with the Charity Commission, with the House of Lords, and even PREVENT, a UK government “anti-terrorism and anti-radicalisation” program.

I found myself in the midst of pejorative misquotes, fabrications, words out of context; and where I said “Zionists” xyz, I was quoted as saying “Jews” xyz. But what was striking was that what I did say elicited equal venom. There was no need to misquote me; what I really said and really meant was just as bad.

Thus when the Board of Deputies of British Jews, a Zionist organization that has unilaterally decided that it speaks for Jews, informed a venue where I was to speak that I have “repeatedly and unapologetically made comments that are very offensive to the Jewish community,” much on the list of alleged quotes the Board supplied to demonstrate my “hate towards [their] community” was +/- accurate. And the sources for those statements were all declassified Mandate-era documents held by the British government.

It was time to put the historical record on the witness stand.

Since detractors will not go to the National Archives in Kew to see source material for themselves, I decided to make available, online, a selection of documents that I cite.

It is a work in progress:

I have in effect called upon the British government of several decades past to testify on my behalf. Will declassified historical material held by the government be publicly flogged as hate material because it is unwelcome by Israel? is not and cannot be anything approaching a broad resource. Rather, the site is intended to make the Zionist creation myth do battle with the historical record itself, not with me. Its sampling of documents demonstrate that I am merely the messenger — and more importantly, it is my hope that it will whet the appetite of others to pursue this neglected area that is absolutely vital to ending the misery in Israel-Palestine, and indeed in the greater Middle East.

The documents illustrated are not the full substantive evidence for significant conclusions and positions taken by me that elicited such outrage (found in my book, State of Terror). Those positions are the sum of the history over the entire period at issue. For example, I state that UN Resolution 181, with its implicit creation of the Israeli state, was the capitulation to Zionist terrorism. For me, the proof lies in the cumulative history of the Zionist movement, especially in the preceding decade. On I illustrate a British government document that actually states this (see illustration below), by itself sufficient to upset the dominant, mythical Narrative.

An extract from “Memorandum by the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs” dated 18 September, 1947, marked “Top Secret” at the top. I have added blue underline to highlight key passages. This paper dates after the UN’s Palestine committee (UNSCOP) formulated its two proposals for post-Mandate Palestine, and before the UN passage of Resolution 181 that accept the majority proposal: Partition. (The minority proposal was for a Federated, or bi-national, state.) What is clear from this document is that [1] Partition, whose implicit purpose was the creation of the Israeli state, was enacted in fear of continuing Zionist terror (against the West); [2] it was hoped that the disproportionately large portion of land given the Zionists in Resolution 181 would delay Israeli expansionist wars that were fully expected. Other documents prove that British and US officials knew, contrary to Resolution’s pretenses, that there would be no Palestinian state. TNA, CAB 129/21. Reproduced with permission.

What was ongoing in Palestine before the establishment of the Israeli state did not end in 1948. We are still living this “history”, and the truths of that history remain the truths of the so-called “conflict”. Making these documents available at the screen of any computer or smartphone is an attempt to add another crack to the narrative that Israel promotes to sustain the “conflict”.

• Palestine Documents:
• Brief video of the particular saboteur mentioned here
• This issue is used as a British election football (note that the quote “accuses Jews of exploiting the Holocaust”, among others, is a fabrication)
• The Board of Deputies of British Jews undermines a talk
• To avoid more harassment, the talk sabotaged by the Board of Deputies had to be moved to a new, unannounced location, for a closed audience.
• I respond to the general accusations
• I respond to complaints filed with the House of Lords
• Jonathan Cook graciously weighs in

    What a stupid battle, fought and fought again, against lies, misbeliefs, hasbara-trained (misled or willing participant) untruths. The Big Lie will triumph again adn again until, at long last, some sunshine — perhaps this sunshine in part — lets the truth be known.

    It will help if there is gradually a PUBLIC DESIRE for the truth to be known. The present USA and UK governments appear to be in Zio pocket and will be no help. In UK, Corbyn? California DEMs?

    That cartoon is one of the nastiest I have ever seen, but it does have one redeeming feature: it says “Map of Palestine”, proving that even the Zionists once admitted that Palestine existed.

    Mr. Saboteur (who is well known here in London) is so adept at his craft that when Security arrived to ask him to desist or leave, he instead cowered Security into leaving.

    Name, picture and address would be welcome. Also, considering that he was successful not because he is adept at his craft, but for the fact that security personnel is hired and instructed by his accomplices, it might be a good idea to contemplate having out own security personnel at these venues. It’s becoming a matter of physical safety now, not just freedom of speech.

    “Why did it take an American violinist … an AMERICAN VIOLINIST! To reveal it?! “

    Well, it’s a very complicated story, but it all starts with an esoteric skill that Armand Emmanuel Sophie Septimanie de Vignerot du Plessis, 5th Duke of Richelieu, 6th Duke of Fronsac, Count of Chinon, encouraged while he was governor-general of New Russia.

    • JLewisDickerson on June 13, 2017, 12:56 am

      Everyone knows that violinists are the most rabidly anti-Semitic Jew-haters this side of Tehran.
      Except perhaps for the Russian chess players/champions.
      And they’re really, really weird.
      You couldn’t pay me to go near them.
      Oh, and American Nobel prize-winning molecular biologist/geneticists.
      I’m glad I didn’t have the misfortune of discovering the double-helix structure of DNA.
      That sort of thing can really warp your mind.

    Hi Tom,

    I did read your book from cover to cover, but I have to admit I had to pause reading it for weeks at a time due to the fact that it was quite depressing. Well-written, with sources cited, yes, but the truth isn’t always pretty or easy to swallow.

    Thank you for your excellent work.

    “I was a hate speaker…”

    Of course you were. Everything is “hate” nowadays.

    (Psst: typo. The text has “cowered Security” instead of “cowed”.)

    • Tom Suarez on June 6, 2017, 9:43 am

      Ah, yes indeed, should be “cowed” — thanks.
      Also I note my error “Its sampling of documents demonstrate” (should of course be “demonstrates”).

    Tom, thank you so much for your writing and setting up the website. The people of Western Europe and America have been intentionally deceived on this topic. The harassment you endured is a sample of the dishonest and coercive tactics that have been used to maintain this deception. The prolonged maintenance of this lie, including the crucial control of the press and politicians required to maintain it, testifies to the severe danger threatening western democracies. Israel’s masquerading as a democracy is a central part of the entire lie. Ripping off that mask is essential for the survival of civilized values.

    “Recruiting children for the terror militias”

    NewYork Times, July 9, 1938

    On July 8th, a bus filled with Palestinians was blown up by Zionist terrorists.

    Of the four Jews taken into custody for the terror attack, the one identified by eye witnesses as actually having thrown the bomb was a twelve year old girl.

    The Irgun, taking responsibility, boasted that the bombing had caused “great consternation in Arab quarters”.

    “Hi Echinococcus, I had deliberately denied him the “honor”, but if you click on the second link above, you’ll see him”

    Quite a sight. On the face of it a classic British Zionist Warrior who prefers to live in the UK as opposed to packing up and moving”back” to his immortal ancestral Zioland to do his thing for his real country or is there more to him perhaps:

    “Now at this juncture we could go all po-faced, condemn his behaviour, and call for the Zionist Federation to sack him. But that would be an error. Jonathan Hoffman is so extreme, so constantly dogmatic, rude, intellectually dubious and pig headed that he constantly brings the Zionist Federation, and his own cause, into disrepute. There can be only one explanation, that he is in fact an Anti-Zionist mole trying to bring down the British Zionist movement. At this, he is doing an excellent job. No other anti-Zionist has had such success in promoting the cause and making Zionism look ridiculous. Whether funded by Hezbolllah, or simply doing it as a hobby Hoffman is the anti-zionist activist par excellence. Jonathan, we salute you!”

    If he is the real thing perhaps he is related to another UK Zionist intellectual giant Davis Lewin. Clear similarities = loud obese foul mouthed and ill mannered – they should get together to form a Zionist comedy duo.
    (from1:23 onwards)

    • echinococcus on June 6, 2017, 2:08 pm

      I don’t mind the rudeness or the foul mouth. In fact, being “dogmatic, rude, intellectually dubious and pig headed” are substantial advantages if your propaganda is directed at Zionists or Zionist sympathizers. The way these people have been raised in the last 50 years, these are appealing macho conquistador features.

      Let’s just remember to try and afford our own security personnel and, in its absence, stop being silent spectators. I watched: intervening as a group (not one by one) and berating “security” would probably have cut the thing short.

    Speaking of “Zionist myths,” here’s the link to a superb just published article by Jeremy Hammond (June 5/17) in response to New York Times columnist Bret Stephens regarding the June 1967 war.

    “I heard that Corbyn interview, carried out by Emma Barnett, whom I have subsequently learned is Jewish, on BBC Woman’s Hour. Woman’s Hour is usually a reflective and civilized programme. This interview however was relentlessly hostile and even insulting in tone. Barnett’s rudeness and partiality certainly deserve excoriating criticism; ”

With all of the Zionist propaganda being put forth on this anniversary, Norman is a breath of fresh air. I recommend all 3 parts.

    I read your book Mr. Suarez. Thank you for all your hard work. I would like to see your website document all of the times that the Zionist movement blocked immigration and rescue plans promoted by non-Jews. This would clearly show that Zionist founders wanted an empire and not a rescue of their fellow Jews.

    RE: “Since detractors will not go to the National Archives in Kew to see source material for themselves, I decided to make available, online, a selection of documents that I cite.” ~ Suarez

    ■ MY COMMENT: The “detractors” are virtually brick walls, but there are many people in the “mushy middle” who will eventually take note, especially of govenment documents that are contemporaneous with the significant historical events.

    ■ FROM BRITANNICA.COM [cognitive dissonance]

    cognitive dissonance – the mental conflict that occurs when beliefs or assumptions are contradicted by new information. The unease or tension that the conflict arouses in a person is relieved by one of several defensive maneuvers: the person rejects, explains away, or avoids the new information, persuades himself that no conflict really exists, reconciles the differences, or resorts to any other defensive means of preserving stability or order in his conception of the world and of himself. The concept, first introduced in the 1950s, has become a major point of discussion and research.

    SOURCE –

    ■ FROM WIKIPEDIA AS OF 1/28/14 [Defence mechanisms]:

    [EXCERPTS] . . . In Freudian psychoanalytic theory, defense mechanisms are psychological strategies brought into play [primarily ~ J.L.D.] by the unconscious mind[4] to manipulate, deny, or distort reality in order to defend against feelings of anxiety and unacceptable impulses to maintain one’s self schema [and to minimize cognitive dissonance – J.L.D.].[5]

    These processes that manipulate, deny, or distort reality may include the following: repression, or the burying of a painful feeling or thought from one’s awareness even though it may resurface in a symbolic form;[3] identification, incorporating an object or thought into oneself;[6] and rationalization, the justification of one’s behavior and motivations by substituting “good” acceptable reasons for the motivations.[3][7] Generally, repression is considered the basis for other defense mechanisms.[3]

    Healthy persons normally use different defences throughout life. An ego defence mechanism becomes pathological only when its persistent use leads to maladaptive behaviour such that the physical or mental health of the individual is adversely affected. The purpose of ego defence mechanisms is to protect the mind/self/ego from anxiety and/or social sanctions and/or to provide a refuge from a situation with which one cannot currently cope.[8]

    Defence mechanisms are unconscious coping mechanisms that reduce anxiety generated by threats from unacceptable impulses [i.e., a refuge from cognitive dissonance – J.L.D.]..[9]

    . . . The list of defence mechanisms is huge and there is no theoretical consensus on the number of defence mechanisms. . .

    Vaillant’s categorization of defence mechanisms

    ♦ Level 1: Pathological

    The mechanisms on this level, when predominating, almost always are severely pathological. These six defences, in conjunction, permit one to effectively rearrange external experiences to eliminate the need to cope with reality. . .
    • Delusional Projection: Delusions about external reality, usually of a persecutory nature. . . [i.e., perceiving legitimate criticism of Israel as “Anti-Semitism” ~ J.L.D.]
    • Denial: Refusal to accept external reality [e.g., refusing to visit the National Archives in Kew to see source material, or even look at it online ~ J.L.D.] because it is too threatening; arguing against an anxiety-provoking stimulus by stating it doesn’t exist; resolution of emotional conflict and reduction of anxiety by refusing to perceive or consciously acknowledge the more unpleasant aspects of external reality. . .

    ♦ Level 2: Immature

    These mechanisms are often present in adults. These mechanisms lessen distress and anxiety provoked by threatening people or by uncomfortable reality. . .
    • Fantasy: Tendency to retreat into fantasy in order to resolve inner and outer conflicts. . .[i.e., the belief that the interests of the U.S. and Israel are identical is a nice example of fantasy ~ J.L.D.]

    ♦ Level 3: Neurotic

    These mechanisms are considered neurotic, but fairly common in adults. Such defences have short-term advantages in coping, but can often cause long-term problems . . .
    Intellectualization: A form of isolation; concentrating on the intellectual components of a situation so as to distance oneself from the associated anxiety-provoking emotions . . .
    Withdrawal: Withdrawal is a more severe form of defence. It entails removing oneself from events, stimuli, interactions, etc. under the fear of being reminded of painful thoughts and feelings. . .

    ♦ Level 4: Mature

    These are commonly found among emotionally healthy adults and are considered mature . . .
    • Thought suppression: The conscious process of pushing thoughts into the preconscious; the conscious decision to delay paying attention to an emotion or need in order to cope with the present reality; making it possible to later access uncomfortable or distressing emotions whilst accepting them. . .
