14 December 1990. Thought for the Week: "....the coverage of the Middle East in the American media is 99 percent pro-Jewish. Why? The pro-Israeli reportage is a complicated story of pressure, fear of loss of advertising, and ever-present fear of loss of jobs, The Jewish-Zionist ownership of A.B.C., C.B.S., the New York Times and the Washington Post is an enormous factor in the kind of news people receive. In addition to the power of the Jewish lobby, there is the inbred repugnance on the part of decent Christians to criticise Israel lest they appear anti-Semitic."
Dr. Alfred Lilienthal, the distinguished American Jewish authority on the Middle East
LIGHT IN THE MIDDLE EAST GLOOM?
The sudden prospect of military war being averted in the Middle East has caused the pro-Zionists everywhere to reveal themselves as warmongers. Dr. Henry Kissinger, for example, has consistently urged President Bush to strike fast because the U.S.A. has "passed the point of no return" and "time is not on our side". Kissinger is the man who conceded that Saddam Hussein may not have intended to seize control of the Saudi Arabian oilfields, but that President Bush's "courageous decision" to send troops could have changed Hussein's mind. There is no evidence whatever to suggest that Hussein proposed to invade Saudi Arabia in the immediate future, whatever he might conceivably have attempted in the past.
Hussein has consistently claimed, as did his predecessors, that Kuwait is historically a province of Iraq, that because of a line drawn on the map in the early twenties, Kuwait was severed from Iraq, one consequence of this being the lack of a deep-sea port for Iraqi oil exports. Hussein has also claimed that Kuwait oil drilling on the disputed border between Kuwait and Iraq was drawing upon Iraqi oil. Hussein' s murderous and repressive record must not be allowed to obscure the fact that his war on Iran and his take over of Kuwait were related to oil politics.
As we have observed previously, Hussein allowed himself to be trapped into the Kuwait situation by both Moscow and Washington. From the beginning the Zionists left no doubt that they were delighted with developments and could hardly contain their expectations of a major military conflict that would enable them to resolve, in the short term at least, the festering Palestinian problem, and also have the Americans destroy Iraq as a major military force.
The Australian of December 7th
carries a report from Jerusalem which reveals how the Israeli
leaders not only want Hussein out of Kuwait; they want Iraq
destroyed completely, claiming that this will remove the major
military threat to Israel in the future. But events have forced
President Bush to attempt to change course. The reason is
a growing change of public opinion in the U.S.A.
Joseph Sobran of the conservative Catholic weekly, The Wanderer, is also another powerful voice criticising the Bush adventure into the Middle East. Giving evidence before the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, a growing number of former military and other leaders have started to raise serious doubts about the Bush policy. President Bush may well feel pleased that the U.N. Security Council has agreed that unless Hussein leaves Kuwait by the middle of January, he is then entitled to use force. But Democrat Chairman of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, Senator Pell, has struck a raw nerve in the American body politic with his charge that America's allies "will fight to the last drop of American blood".
American public support for President Bush is starting to erode. This has forced him to offer to start negotiations. Hussein has wisely responded by permitting all foreigners to leave Kuwait and Iraq before Christmas. As Dr. Alfred Lilienthal and other authorities on the Middle East have consistently claimed, no permanent peace and stability in the region is possible which does not resolve the problem of the dispossessed Palestinians and the continued occupancy of territories controlled by Israel since 1967.
Coming events are going to decide whether at long last Western nations are prepared to stand up to Zionist pressure. As one of our readers correctly points out, the essence of the issue which could lead either to a horrendous war, or to peace, will be found in two pages, 150 and 151 of the book, Prophecy and Politics, by the American evangelical Christian, Grace Halsell. This book is compulsory reading at the present critical time. Widespread dissemination of the information in this book could make a major contribution to ensuring that there is an informed Australian public opinion.

BRITISH REBUFF TO INTERNATIONALISTS
Eric Butler sent this report from London,
While the underlying principle of the "Poll Tax", that all those benefiting from Municipal services should make a contribution to Municipal revenues, has some merit, the method of implementation has been badly handled and was seized upon by Margaret Thatcher's enemies. Continuing high inflation and destructive interest rates provided ready ammunition for the anti-Thatcher campaigners.
But the basic issue was the future of the United Kingdom in a European Community structure, which the internationalists are now feverishly attempting to completely centralise as part of the emerging New World Order programme. Against all odds, Margaret Thatcher had insisted that she was not going to board a European train moving towards an uncertain destination. She was not moved by the claim that the train was leaving anyhow and that the U.K. would be isolated if it refused to board. All the evidence indicates that Margaret Thatcher was attempting to engage in a delaying strategy.
Backed by enormous money power, the
extremely wealthy Michael Heseltine was the internationalists'
"star" whom it was confidently felt could defeat Margaret
Thatcher at the right moment. The major media, including the
B.B.C., carried an unrelenting war against Margaret Thatcher.
The precipitating factor, which brought the drama to a head,
was a 19-minute speech in the House of Commons by the former
Deputy Prime Minister, Sir Geoffrey Howe, explaining why he
had resigned from the Thatcher cabinet. This was a savage
attack in which the truth about the anti-Thatcher campaign
Backed with high-pressure media support, Heseltine at long last decided that the moment had come to strike. He quoted what he claimed was the evidence that he was the best qualified, that she would best serve her party and her objectives by retiring gracefully. Margaret Thatcher lost no time in letting it be known that she was backing John Major. The relatively unknown John Major was soon baffling the predictions of the political pundits by gathering a growing groundswell of rapport. The "outsider" had struck a chord with both the grassroots of the Conservative party and the British public. The polls revealed the astonishing fact that although closely associated with Margaret Thatcher he was rated as the man most likely to lead the Conservatives to victory at the next elections.
Although John Major has said that he does not support any further surrender of British sovereignty on the European Common Market issue, he will be under enormous pressure. Politics is the art of the possible, and in an attempt to ensure a Conservative win at the next elections, Major will have to seek to accommodate the pro-Europeans. For tactical reasons he may feel obliged to bring Michael Heseltine into his Cabinet. But if Major can win the next elections, he will be in a very different and stronger situation. And with events moving with such rapidity, the situation in Europe could be so changed that British public opinion would strongly endorse an open retreat from the venture into the E.E.C. and he could lead an embattled Conservative Party to another election victory.
While Margaret Thatcher won a small overall majority in the first leadership vote, this was not sufficient for victory under the Party's constitution, which required a further vote, with the way cleared for other candidates. Although initially Margaret Thatcher had decided to fight on, she had been badly wounded and was persuaded to resign.
THE GREATER CRIME
from Jeremy Lee
Of course there should be accountability and restitution by those who abuse positions of trust. But there would be no government minister of any party in any government entirely immune from the eyes of those determined to expose any anomaly. Whatever else is said of Sir Joh, deliberate personal gain was not amongst his failings. He is probably the only State or Federal politician who consistently refused to accept the enormous superannuation benefits his many years in parliament entitled him to. Contrast his attitude with the facts exposed by Professor Geoffrey Blainey on October 19th in Perth.
The combined Federal and State commitments for the superannuation of public servants and politicians to be paid out in the years ahead now exceeds $55 billion, over $3,200 for every living Australian. Geoffrey Blainey said: "... Mr. Hawke and Mr. Keating have rightly drawn attention to the enormous overseas debt incurred by Australian businesses. They have been appropriately silent about the enormous debts incurred inside Australia by all governments for their own superannuation schemes, schemes from which Mr. Hawke and Keating will be happy beneficiaries. I offer this chilling fact. If by chance the Federal Government magically stabilised Australia's foreign debt, that colossal debt would, in the lifetime of most people now in the public service, be exceeded by the indebtedness of the present governmental schemes of superannuation. And that debt - unlike the foreign debt - must be met directly by the taxpayers "
How does one compare one crime against another? Can it really be said that politicians who pass legislation voting themselves and the public servants hundreds of thousands of dollars each in superannuation, to be paid for by taxpayers the majority of whom are not eligible to the same benefits themselves, and who had no say about the legislation in the first place, are somehow less criminal or more moral than a Premier who refused to accept his superannuation handout, but is now to face charges of corruption? Whatever else is said, the idea of tax funded handouts running into tens of billions of dollars to politicians and public servants, while farmers, businessmen and families are destroyed, is corruption on a scale, which may yet sink Australia.
A COLOSSUS THAT IS OUT OF CONTROL from
The Sunday Age (Melbourne, December 9th). The correspondent
is Edward Rock, of the Christian Alternative Movement:

HOLOCAUSTTime for a New Look at Catastrophe from The Sunday Age, December 9th "It worries me when educators like Dr. Paul Gardner (25/11) use psychological warfare techniques in order to silence his critics. It indicates to me a sidestepping of important factual matters. "The eminent philosopher of Jewish background, Sir Karl Popper, would consider such psychologism as non-scientific, or of no factual value. "Dr. Gardner would, I believe, do well to get back to a basic definition of his term anti-semitic. "The inaccurate use of this term does not help to unravel these obfuscations surrounding the whole Jewish identity problem and its related issue - the Jewish holocaust.
"I would beg Dr. Gardner, for the sake of truthful and open inquiry, to stop reacting so emotionally to anyone who questions the accuracy of the holocaust. I hasten to add that I sympathise with his expressed concerns for the suffering and injustices. No one disputes this fact. "What honest and interested inquirers into the Jewish holocaust seek is a total objective, new look at this catastrophe, without fear or favour.
"Should Dr. Gardner question my motives for making such a proposal, then it is this: I have a perceived notion that the German nation, for a period of over 45 years, may have been unjustly defamed.
"Any historian of note knows that no historical event is beyond their grasp. Secrecy laws in most countries attest to the reality of fabricated official versions of events. "That censorship of the Jewish holocaust exists in Australia is a fact. 'The Sunday Age' is to be commended for its relaxation of this self-imposed censorship". (Frederick Toben, Goroke, Vic.)
FRED LEUCHTERWe reproduce some of the material (space being the problem) from the October Newsletter of the Institute of Historical Review (I.H.R.): Leuchter, America's leading expert in the design and manufacture of execution systems, had seemed to enjoy a grace period following his testimony at the second Zundel trial and the appearance of the Leuchter Report. Earlier this year he had been hailed, both for his expertise and his quest for painless executions, in The Atlantic, a national literary magazine, and on the T.V. news show, Prime Time Live.
"Behind the scenes, however, an ambitious campaign was under way to destroy Leuchter professionally and economically. Even before the Prime Time Live segment was broadcast, Leuchter learned from the show's staff that representatives of a group called the Association of Holocaust Survivors and Friends in Pursuit of Justice, which serves as the sole distributor of the Klarsfeld's books 'documenting' the so-called Holocaust in this country, were visiting some of the same prisons consulted by the Prime Time Live staff to inform corrections officials of Leuchter's 'Holocaust Denial' and 'neo-Nazi' activities.
