BACKGROUND OF THE "RUSSIAN"
AND THE MIDDLE EAST CRISIS
The following are some of the notes used
by Mr. Eric Butler in his major lecture given on an
international lecturing and fact-finding tour.
One of the biggest hoaxes ever inflicted upon
a gullible mankind is the generally believed story that the revolution,
which took place in Russia in November 1917, was the result of the
downtrodden Russian people rising up against their exploiters under
the brilliant leadership of Lenin and Trotsky. The hoax also insists
that from 1917 until the present time the Communists have, in the
face of worldwide opposition from "the wicked capitalists",
literally pulled themselves up by their own bootstraps until they
have created one of the two greater superpowers of the world.
When the Russian Czar was forced to abdicate
in March 1917, by revolutionary pressures generated by the activities
of Jacob Schiff and his colleagues of Kuhn, Loeb and Company, and
similar international financiers, Trotsky was in New York working
for a Communist newspaper. Lenin was in Switzerland. He had been
in Europe since 1905 when he was expelled from Russia for his part
in the abortive Communist uprising, which took place that year. Bolshevism
was not in March 1917, a viable force capable of taking over Russia
with its own limited resources.
First Lenin was sent from Switzerland
into Russia in a sealed train along with at least 50 of his fellow
Bolsheviks. As Winston Churchill graphically described this remarkable
episode, Lenin was sent into Russia "in the same way that you
might send a phial containing a culture of Cholera to be poured into
the water supply of a great city . . . No sooner did Lenin arrive
than he began beckoning a finger here and a finger there to obscure
persons in sheltered retreats in New York . . ."
In a revealing article written in 1920, Churchill
wrote about "This worldwide conspiracy".
Trotsky lost no time responding to the beckoning finger of Lenin, boarding
a ship in New York and taking with him 275 fellow Bolshevik revolutionaries.
But when his ship, the S.S. Christiana, reached Halifax, Nova Scotia,
the Canadian Government promptly arrested him and impounded the large
sum of money he was carrying.
The Canadian Government very logically
took the view that as Trotsky and his fellow Bolsheviks had openly
proclaimed that when they took control of Russia they were going to
make a separate peace with Germany, and that as this would mean the
use of all German troops against the Western Front where large numbers
of Canadians were fighting, they should prevent Trotsky from continuing
on his revolutionary mission. Trotsky was held for five days, but then
allowed to proceed by a Canadian Government forced to yield to the "worldwide
conspiracy". The core of this conspiracy was the international
financial groups linked with Kuhn, Loeb and Company.
One of the principal figures was Jacob Schiff,
whose own grandson has admitted had invested at least $20 million
in a revolution which in fact was imposed upon the unfortunate Russians
from outside their country. Trotsky later married the daughter of
one of the wealthy bankers who backed the Bolshevik Revolution, Jivotovsky.
A leading member of Kuhn, Loeb and Company was Mr. Paul Warburg, who
together with his brother Felix left Germany for the United States
in 1902, leaving behind brother Max to run the family bank of M. N.
Warburg and Company, Frankfurt. Paul Warburg married Solomon Loeb's
daughter and Felix married Jacob Schiff's daughter. Mr. Paul Warburg
was the architect of the Federal Reserve Board, one of the early steps
towards developing what later became known as Central Banking.
While millions of troops were locked in battle
in Western Europe during the First World War, the international financiers
were operating on both sides of the fighting lines. Max Warburg,
for example, was playing a vital role in Germany while brothers Felix
and Paul were doing likewise in the U.S.A. A very cosy type of family
arrangement! Sir Cecil Spring-Rice, British Ambassador to Washington
during the first part of World War I, complained on numerous occasions
about the pro-German attitude of these groups. In a letter to Sir
Edward Grey British Foreign Minister, on November 15, 1914, Sir Cecil
Spring-Rice wrote, "The Jews have a strong preference for the
(German) Emperor, and there must be some bargain . . ."
The desperate British later did make a bargain,
a major part of which was outlined in a letter dated November 2,
1917, from Lord Balfour, the British Foreign Secretary, to Lord Rothschild,
informing him that the British Cabinet was in favour of "the
establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people".
Lord Rothschild was requested to bring the British Cabinet's decision
to the knowledge of the Zionist Federation. Some of those members
of the British Government which agreed to the "Balfour Declaration",
including Winston Churchill, subsequently recorded quite frankly
that the promise was made to the Political Zionists in order that
they would use their enormous international influence on the side
of the Western Allies at a time when their military situation was
so desperate that failing assistance from the United States, there
was no real alternative to making some type of peace agreement with
Probably bearing in mind that the promise to
the Political Zionists conflicted with an earlier promise made to
Arab leaders, who were promised Arab independence if they would join
against their colonial masters, the Turks, one of Germany's main
allies, the British Cabinet did declare in the Balfour agreement
that the establishment of a National Home for the Jews must not "prejudice
the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities
in Palestine . . ."
When Great Britain was given the Mandate over
Palestine at the end of the First World War the population was 95
percent Moslem and Christian Arabs, and only 5 percent Jews, many
of these coming in from Russia under various Zionist colonising schemes.
The Palestinians could trace their history back over two thousand
years. They had a far greater rightful claim to Palestine than have,
for example, the Europeans to the United States.
But the imposition of the Political Zionist
programme upon Great Britain set in motion a chain of explosive events
leading to the expulsion of the Palestinians from their country,
a frightful Palestinian refugee problem, the cynical exploitation
of that problem by the Soviet Union, and a Middle East crisis which
has resulted in periodic major military explosions between the Arab
nations and the Zionist State of Israel.
One of the most potent emotional arguments used by the Political Zionists
to establish a State in another people's country, is that they have
a special moral and religious claim to "the land of their forbears".
The great majority of those called Jews, probably
at least 85 per cent, have no racial relationship whatever with Palestine.
The "Universal Jewish Encyclopedia" gives the history of the great
Khazar Empire of Middle Asia, the people being of mixed stock with
Mongol and Turkish affinities. They were an extremely warlike but
able people. It was probably towards the end of the eighth century
that King Bulan having called representatives of Judaism, Christianity
and Mohammedanism, decided upon Judaism as a State religion.
eminent Jewish history Professor H. Graetz, in his "History of the
Jews" deals with the progressive Judaism of the Khazars relating how
it became the fundamental law of the State that only Jewish rulers
could ascend the throne.
The Khazars were the first population of
people to be called Jews in Eastern Europe. Eventually they were
dispersed throughout Russia, Eastern Europe and then through to Western
Europe. Obviously there has been considerable mixing with other peoples
over the centuries, but this group of Jews, broadly described as
Askenazims, can claim no racial relationship with Palestine.
The small minority group of the Jews, the Sephardim,
has lived in peace and harmony with the Arab peoples over the centuries.
They are different from the Askenazim Jew in many ways, including
appearance. One of the most distinguished members of this group was
the British Prime Minister, Benjamin Disraeli, whose novels revealed
that he had a great understanding of the power exercised by international
finance. He said, "The world is governed by very different people
from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes".
The famous writer, Dr. Oscar Levy, was also a Sephardi Jew, and persecuted
by the Zionists because of his critical anti-Zionist writings.
Political Zionism was born amongst Eastern European
(Askenazim) Jews, its philosophical power concept being first outlined
in "The Jewish State", by Theodor Herzl, a work originally entitled
"An Address to the Rothschilds".
Political Zionism was strongly opposed
by prominent Jews in the West. The distinguished American Jew, Henry
Morgenthau, summarised the feelings of his fellow anti-Zionist Jews
with his comment that "Zionism is the most stupendous fallacy
in Jewish history ... It is a retrogression into the blackest error
and not progress towards the light ... it is a betrayal; it is an
Eastern European proposal, fathered in this country by American Jews
which if it were to succeed, would cost the Jews of America most
that they have gained of liberty, equality and fraternity."
The first Australian-born Governor-General.
Sir Isaac Isaacs, was badly smeared by the Zionists because of his
anti-Zionist stand. Not even the status of that cultured Jew, Moshe
Menuhin, father of the famous violinist. Yehudi Menuhin, saved him
from the hatchet attacks of the Political Zionists when he wrote
his classic work. "The Decadence of Judaism in Our Times" (1965) in
which he described Political Zionism as "A monstrous historical
crime and curse."
The views of the many prominent Jews who have warned about the long-term
dangers of the policies of the Political Zionists, have been almost
completely drowned out by international propaganda supporting Zionist
policies. Or the non-Zionist Jews are given the silent treatment.
FINANCING THE SOVIET BY WALL STREET
Following the imposition of the Bolsheviks upon
the Russian peoples, and the British acceptance of the Zionist project
for Palestine, the Schiffs, Warburgs and their international associates
took the necessary steps, including the entry of the United States
into the conflict, to bring the First World War to an end. They were
represented on both sides at the Versailles Peace Conference. British
Prime Minister Lloyd George later wrote, "The international
bankers swept statesmen, politicians, journalists and jurists all
on one side and issued their orders with the imperiousness of absolute
monarchs . . ." American President Woodrow Wilson changed his
attitude on a vital issue following the receipt of a telegram from
At Versailles Schiff and associates insisted upon the recognition of
the Bolshevik Government in Russia. They also supported the first step
towards trying to create World Government, the League of Nations. But
although American public opinion revolted against accepting the Bolsheviks,
the international financiers took every possible step to ensure that
the newly established Bolshevik regime did not collapse. Credits were
furnished through Germany, these enabling the Bolsheviks to obtain
the Western economic assistance they desperately needed to keep control
of Russia. Communism as a production system is an abject failure, as
demonstrated in the Soviet Union over half a century.
The Great Depression of the 'thirties, eventually
becoming worldwide, was precipitated by the Wall Street international
financiers. They demonstrated the truth of the statement attributed
to the first Rothschild, Mayer Amschel, of Frankfurt, that so long
as he could issue the credit of a nation he did not care who made
the laws. The sudden drastic curtailment of credit in the United
States produced the necessary conditions for the election of President
Roosevelt. Desperate Americans were urged to recognise the Soviet
Union so that loans could be openly granted to them. This would be "good
for American business," was the theme. This is the same theme
being used today to justify not only massive credit and economic
blood transfusions to the Soviet Empire, but also to the Red Chinese.
The international financiers have an excellent
public relations man developing this theme with an added emphasis:
the building up of both the Soviet Union and Red China will lead
to the creation of an "international order." This public
relations man is Dr. Henry Kissinger, who migrated to the United
States from Germany before the Second World War.
Kissinger was the
man who said before the 1968 American Presidential Elections that
Richard Nixon was unfitted to be the President. But when Nixon was
elected, one of his first acts was to appoint Kissinger to a position,
which made him the most powerful American public servant in the Republic's
history! Nixon obviously recognised that Kissinger represented the
real source of power in the modern world: those who create and control
To the uninformed, credit power is a form of
black magic. Those who have sought to monopolize this power are,
in a world of sophisticated technology, much better placed to seek
to establish a World State than was an Alexander The Great. Alexander
had no mass media to brainwash people, so his principal instrument
for obtaining complete World power was the sword. Those thrusting
towards the age-old dream of a World State today are using a variety
of policies and techniques, including economic centralism.
is a continuing state of crisis, with each new crisis being exploited
to develop centralised power still further. Consider how Political
Zionism and the Soviet Union have combined to produce a series of
Middle East crises, the October 1973, crisis resulting in a "solution"
by Dr. Henry Kissinger. This met with the warm approval of the Soviet
leaders, who look forward to the re-opening of the Suez Canal so that
they can easily move their growing naval forces from the Mediterranean
Sea into the Indian Ocean.
The Middle East crisis started to develop from
the moment the British permitted the Zionists to start establishing
a "National Home" in Palestine after the First World War.
Growing Zionist immigration, the overwhelming majority of the migrants
being Askenazim Jews, produced inevitable friction with the indigenous
people, the British trying to preserve peace. As the Second World
War approached, the British decided to revise their policy and in
the White Paper of 1939 announced a drastic curtailment of Zionist
immigration to Palestine. There was a storm of protest from the Zionists
and violent anti-British threats.
The British declaration of war
on Hitler's Germany temporarily ended the Zionist threats, but as
the war proceeded there was a growing Zionist drive to use Jewish
refugees from Europe to breach British immigration laws for Palestine.
Steps were also taken to establish a Zionist underground terrorist
movement, ready to strike against the British when the war ended.
In a world where terror tactics have become
almost commonplace, it is easy to forget that the Zionist terrorists
were responsible for some of the most shocking crimes. There was
the blowing up of the King David Hotel, the murdering of British
soldiers and police. Some were kidnapped, flogged and then hanged.
The deadly letter bomb was used. The British Minister-Resident in
Cairo, Lord Moyne, was murdered in cold blood.
The British who had
exhausted themselves in the war against Hitler, were now vilified
internationally, particularly in the United States, as being "worse
than Hitler"-merely because they were attempting to ensure that
a balance was maintained in Palestine. The co-operation of the Soviet
leaders with the Zionist drive on Palestine was dramatically highlighted
when the British Chief of the United Nations Relief and Rehabilitation
Organisation, Lieut. -General Sir Frederick Morgan publicly charged
that there was a "secret organisation to further mass movement
of Jews from Europe" and that this movement was being used as "an
umbrella for Russian secret and criminal agents".
The Soviet not only provided Jewish manpower
for the Zionist Palestinian campaign, but when the Zionist forces
looked like being defeated militarily by the Arab armies following
the Zionist conquest of Palestine, following the British withdrawal
in May, 1948, Stalin personally ordered that the Zionists be provided
with the best available military equipment. Pressured by both the
Communists and the Political Zionists the United Nations had previously
decided that when the British left Palestine should be partitioned
under the UN supervision. But the Zionists launched a terror campaign,
which resulted in hundreds of thousands of Palestinians fleeing from
their own country. This was the beginning of the dreadful Palestinian
refugee problem, which predictably led to what has taken place since
exploitation of the situation by the Soviet strategists, experts
in exploiting problems they have helped to create.
In three oustanding works, Mr. Alfred Lilienthal,
the American Jewish expert on the Middle East, warned of what must
happen as the result of forcing the Zionist "thorn" into
Moslem world. What Price Israel? "There Goes the Middle East", and
"The Other Side of the Coin", are essential source works for those
wishing to study a terrible story by a non-Zionist Jew. Mr. Lilienthal
has been threatened and smeared and his books are now very difficult
to obtain. Events have confirmed Mr. Lilienthal's central warning:
that uncritical Western support for the Zionist State of Israel must
assist Soviet strategy in penetrating the Middle East and influencing
the whole of the Moslem world. A constant state of crisis has been
punctuated by three major military explosions, the first in 1956,
when the British under Prime Minister Eden decided, together with
the French, to make an effort to re-establish their authority over
the Suez Canal area. They were forced to retreat in a major loss
of face, not by Egyptian military force, but by combined threats
from Moscow and Washington. Washington threatened severe finance-economic
sanctions if the British refused to retreat. Soviet influence increased
SOVIET REAL VICTORS IN SIX-DAY WAR
Then came the Six-Day War of May 1967. Superficial
anti-Communists, encouraged by Zionist propaganda, enthusiastically
proclaimed that as Soviet Russia was backing the Arabs, the devastating
defeat of the Arabs by the Israelis was a major set-back for the
Soviet strategists. Israel, allegedly threatened with extinction
by the Communist-backed Arabs, was presented as a courageous David
showing the whole world how to defeat the Communist Goliath. The
truth was exactly the opposite. The real winners were the Soviet
strategists, subsequently revealed to have triggered the conflict
by providing Egypt with a false report that Egypt's ally Syria was
about to be attacked by Israel.
So far from the Soviet strategists believing
that Egypt had the capacity to defeat the Israelis on the battlefield,
they knew, as did every real authority on the Middle East, that the
Egyptians and their allies were in a hopeless position. One of the
real experts on the Middle East, the famous Sir John Glubb, ("Glubb
Pasha") who spent much of his life in the Middle East training
Arab troops, analysed the 1967 Arab-Israeli conflict in a booklet,
"The Middle East Crisis". Sir John Glubb pointed out all those with
military experience in the Middle East over the previous twenty years
knew that "the Egyptian Army had not the faintest chance against
the Israelis". He observed that he had predicted that the duration
of any battle in the Sinai would only be forty-eight hours. The Egyptians
were defeated in sixty hours.
As Sir John Glubb points out, the Soviet strategy
had two main objectives: To lure the Arabs into a catastrophic defeat,
with the United States and the British completely committed to Israel.
If the two objectives were achieved, the Arab States would be convinced
that the West had no sympathy whatever for them and that, however
resentful the Arabs might be that the Soviet had not actively entered
the conflict to prevent their defeat, they have no alternative but
to rely solely on the Soviet for reconstruction. The Soviet strategy
worked out perfectly. Israel expanded enormously its occupation of
Arab territories, including the West Bank of Jordan, this resulting
in a new flood of Arab refugees into neighbouring Arab countries.
Sir John Glubb remarked, "If Soviet leaders ever laugh, this
must have been the moment."
Yes, indeed. And while dupes of Political Zionist
propaganda were believing the story that the Soviet was backing the
Arabs to destroy Israel, the Communist press of the world was reminding
the Communists everywhere that Soviet policy had played a decisive
role in creating Israel and that there was no intention of allowing
Israel to be destroyed. Two Israeli Communist leaders visiting Moscow
after the 1967 Arab-Israeli conflict were given the same assurance.
The truth is that the retention of Israel is essential for Soviet
strategy not only in the Middle East, but right throughout the Moslem
Under cover of the 1967 Arab-Israeli war the
Soviet strategists increased their naval build up in the Mediterranean
and subsequently continued to exploit the after math of the war,
which saw the Middle East crisis deepening. At the United Nations
the Soviet happily supported the resolution demanding that Israel
give back Arab territories conquered in the 1967 war, confident that
the Western nations were not going to apply any pressure to Israel
to do this, while at the same time pouring more military equipment
into these Arab nations prepared to accept Soviet "assistance".
Blinded by their fear and hatred of Israel, which they have been
led to believe is but an instrument of "Western imperialism" in
the Middle East, few Arabs have considered the significance of the
fact that if it were not for the massive economic blood transfusions
"Western imperialists" to the Soviet Empire, the Communists
would not be in the position to play their dialectical game in the
If the Arabs examine the long-time financing of the Soviet
Union from the West, by the same people ensuring that Israel is sustained
by external assistance, they must logically reach the conclusion that
they, along with their oil, and the Israelis are regarded as but pawns
in a much bigger game-one with the ultimate objective of establishing
a World State.
