Galway Free Palestine Campaign : The "common interests" of Nazism and Zionism
rights, freedoms and repression |
Monday September 29, 2008 14:44 by TD - Free Palestine Campaign
"You can have the others" (Dr. Rudolf Kastner)
Besides highlighting EU hypocrisy in turning the blind eye to Israel's egregious violations of the Agreement, the Euro-Med Agreement, which economically privileges rogue state Israel with access to the EU market ( "Relations between the Parties, as well as all the provisions of the Agreement itself, shall be based on respect for human rights and democratic principles, which guides their internal and international policy and constitutes an essential element of this Agreement.") the other concern of the Free Palestine Campaign at last Saturday's info stall in Shop Street was Zionism's collusion with Nazism and the betrayal of the Jewish people leading up to and during the Holocaust .
Some salient points on this collusion:
* Confirmed by a document found in the German embassy in Ankara, Turkey, after WW2, members of the Jewish terrorist group Lehi or better known as the (Avraham) Stern Gang in January 1941, went to Vichy controlled Beirut and met with German military attaches proposing a formal military alliance to fight their mutual enemy, the British.
* "Architect of the Holocaust" SS-Obersturmbannführer Adolph Eichmann visited Palestine in October, 1937 as a guest of the Zionists, whilst in Egypt he met Feivel Polkes, an informer on the Nazi payroll whom Eichmann described as a “leading Haganah functionary.”
* After Eichmann was sent to Hungary in 1944 to oversee the dispatch of 430,000 Hungarian Jews and others to their deaths in the gas chambers, Eichmann met regularly with Hungarian Jew, Dr. Rudolf Kastner, whom he considered a “fanatical Zionist ... I believe that [he] would have sacrificed a thousand or a hundred thousand of his blood to achieve his political goal. He was not interested in old Jews or those who had become assimilated into Hungarian society. ‘You can have the others,’ he would say, ‘but let me have this group here.’ And because Kastner rendered us a great service by helping keep the deportation camps peaceful. I would let his groups escape.” Kastner was later assassinated in Israel as a Nazi collaborator.
* Lest the pool of potential immigrants to Palestine be depleted. The World Zionist Organization boycotted a 31 nation conference held in France in 1938, convened to discuss the problem of Jewish refugees with future Israeli PM, David Ben- Gurion noting: "If I knew that it was possible to save all the children of Germany by transporting them to England, but only half of them by transporting them to Palestine, I would chose the second."
* Besides the Stern Gang another Zionist terror group, Irgun, tried to form an alliance with the Nazi government with future Israeli PM, Yizhak Shamir, noting the "common interests" that existed between the Zionists in Palestine and the Nazis.
* Besides Zionist collusion with the Nazis, on March 29,1936, Zionists praised Benito Mussolini and his criminal Fascist regime, at the opening of a maritime school, funded by the Fascist government, at Civitavecchia , the speakers ignoring the fact that Italian troops had invaded Abyssinia on Oct. 3, 1935 - at this school, a Zionist youth group, the Betar, trained its sailors for the future state of Israel.
* The Third Congress of the Jewish Community of the Far East was held in Jan., 1940, in Harbin, Manchuria, then under military occupation by the Japanese imperial forces with the Zionists going out of their way to legitimize the Japanese occupation by certifying it as a guarantor of the “equality of all citizens” - by then, Tokyo was already aligned with Hitler and Mussolini in the Anti-Comintern Pact, the Japanese Rape of Nanking had occurred in Dec., 1937, where some 300,000 Chinese civilians and prisoners of war were murdered and also, the “Crystal Night” pogrom of Nov. 9, 1938 when 92 German Jews were murdered and 25,000–30,000 were arrested and deported to concentration camps.
In his review of Lenni Brenner's: 51 Documents: Zionist Collaboration with the Nazis" - from which most of the info for this posting is culled from - William Hughes writes that: Brenner isn’t the first writer to address the mostly taboo subject of how the Zionist leadership cooperated with the Nazis. Rolf Hilberg’s seminal “The Destruction of European Jews”; Hannah Arendt’s “Eichmann in Jerusalem”; Ben Hecht’s “Perfidy”; Edwin Black’s “The Transfer Agreement”; Francis R. Nicosia’s “The Third Reich and the Palestine Question”; Rudolf Vrba and Alan Bestic’s “I Cannot Forgive”; and Rafael Medoff’s “The Deadening Silence: American Jews and the Holocaust,” also dared, with varying public success
Besides last Saturday's info table, the Galway Free Palestine Campaign helped the passionate Yousuf to revivify the moribund Palestine Solidarity Society at last Wednesday's Student Societies Day in NUI Galway, where, we can happily report, the patient is off the table and is alive, well, and thriving mightily with a transfusion of 115 new members.
