1933-39

Zionists collaborate with Nazis to fund the creation of a Jewish State on Palestinian land.

Zionists begin genocide of Palestinians. Arab states attempt humanitarian intervention but fail.

Endnotes and References 



1897 Max Nordau, whose ideas of racial purity, racial degeneracy and eugenics, equally influenced German Nazism and Zionism, which he called Muskeljudentum (Muscle Judaism), realized that Zionists would be able to perpetrate practically any atrocity against the native population if the Zionists managed to operate within some legal sounding framework.  Thus, the Basle program (see http://www.mideastweb.org/basleprogram.htm) is prefaced with the sentence:  Zionism seeks to establish a home for the Jewish people in Palestine secured under public law.  The German Nazis used the same legalistic cover to render their anti-Jewish measures acceptable to the German and world public (see The Nazi Conscience by Claudia Koonz).

1902 Muhammad Ali Khalidi details the forced transfer plan in “Utopian Zionism or Zionist Proselytism?” The Journal of Palestine Studies, 120, Volume XXX, Number 4, Summer 2001, pp. 55-67.  A careful reading of Altneuland by Herzl is also worthwhile.  A carefully prepared edition may be found in “Wenn ihr wollt, ist es kein Märchen” from Jüdischer Verlag bei Athenäum. Walid Khalidi reproduces and analyzes the forced transfer text in “The Jewish-Ottoman Land Company: Herzl’s Blueprint for the Colonization of Palestine,” Journal of Palestine Studies 21, no. 2 (Winter 1993), pp. 30-47.

1908 Zionist paramilitary groups existed before 1908, but השומר  (haShomer), which is the best known, was founded in that year. Asher Ginzburg (העם אחד or Ahad ha`Am) criticizes them; he even accuses them of  “fundraising,” creating incidents that could be used in campaigns to solicit contributions.  Rashid Khalidi provides a good discussion in Palestinian Identity on pp 89-117 of Bar Giora and HaShomer, which were paramilitaries established to prevent Palestinians from exercising water rights. Zionism and the Arabs (1882 – 1948) by Yosef Gorny (p. 100) discusses Ahad ha`Am’s opinion of Zionist attempts to suppress the native population.  Dr. B. Hofman discusses the Zionist militias and their intimidation and terrorization of the native Palestinian population in ישראל ארץ אין רײזע מײן (Meyn Reyze in Erets Yisroel). Anita Shapira includes a somewhat mendacious discussion of early Zionist terrorism in היונה חרב (Hereb hayyonah).

1933-39 Because of the close collaboration of Zionists and Nazis during the 1930s, Hannah Arendt called this period the Zionist phase of Nazism (viz. Heidegger’s Children by Richard Wolin). Edwin Black’s book, The Transfer Agreement, is the standard text on Nazi-Zionist collaboration.  It makes clear that the transfer of funds from Nazi Germany under this agreement made the Jewish State possible.

1934 Al-Jabiri, Ihsan,  “La Visite de M. Ben Gurion à la délégation Syro-Palestinienne à Genève,” La Nation Arabe (Nov-Dec 1934), 144-146.  If the Zionists had accepted the offer, at least one million more European Jews could have survived WW2.

1947-48 The international legal definition of genocide is assumed (viz. http://www.hawaii.edu/powerkills/DBG.CHAP2.HTM).   Benny Morris’ The Birth of the Palestinian Refugee Problem, 1947-1949, is the basic text on Zionist ethnic cleansing.  The War for Palestine, Rewriting the History of 1948, edited by Eugene L. Rogan and Avi Shlaim, updates Morris’ data and conclusions. The web page, http://www.us-israel.org/jsource/History/arab_invasion.html, gives a somewhat inadequate translation of the Arab League’s declaration of reasons for humanitarian intervention in Palestine in 1948.  The Arabic title of the document uses the phrase humanitarian intervention and not invasion.

1948-56 The web site, http://www.palestineremembered.com, provides a tremendous amount of data on this issue.  Facts on the Ground by Nadia Abu el-Haj discusses the ideology of destroying the physical record of the presence of Palestinians as does Meron Benvenisti’s Sacred Landscape: Buried History of the Holy Land Since 1948.

1956-67 How Israel Was Won, A Concise History of the Arab-Israeli Conflict, by Baylis Thomas (pp 115-172) provides a reasonable summary (with citations) of the history of the premeditated aggressive war by UK, France and Israel’s against Egypt in 1956.  Thomas discusses the issue of the 1967 aggression on p. 165, and his assessment is not much different from what Moshe Dayan has said in his memoirs and comments on the 1967 war. The web page, http://www.time.com/time/international/1995/950828/israel.html, discusses the IDF killing of Egyptian POWs in 1956.  The web page, http://www.mideastfacts.com/pow_ap.html, discusses the IDF killing of Egyptian and Palestinian POWs in 1967.

1982 Robert Fisk’s Pity the Nation provides the standard description of Israel’s aggression against Lebanon.

1988 Arafat’s speech to the UN General Assembly (http://mondediplo.com/focus/mideast/arafat88-en) speaks for itself.

1993 The Oslo Agreement gave the Israeli State the legal basis for setting up the checkpoint and pass system within the occupied territories that is so similar to (actually much worse than) Apartheid South Africa.  The Oslo Agreement ignores refugee claims.  Uri Savir’s The Process discusses the history of Oslo. The web page, http://www.cardamon.org/oslo/oslo_documents.htm provides an index of Oslo documents.

2000 The web page, http://electronicintifada.net/v2/article518.shtml, provides a good summary with maps of the proposed Palestinian reservations.

2002 The relationship of the Wall to increasing Palestinian hunger is clear on visiting Palestine. Food must be shipped through the checkpoints, and the IDF hinders such shipments.  But perhaps a more important issue has been the confiscation of Palestinian farmland near the Wall and on what is now the Israel side of the Wall.  Palestinians are still mostly an agricultural population.  If Israel takes away their farmland, it takes away their food. Jenin Jenin starring and directed by Mohamad Bakri addresses the IDF rampage through Jenin.  It is worth noting that Jenin (Biblical `Ein Gannem) is probably the second oldest city on the planet.  The web document, http://www-personal.umich.edu/~hfc/mideast/d9jenin.pdf, describes the attack on Jenin from the standpoint of an Israeli reservist.

2003 Senior IDF commanders seem to have decided to try to drive internationals out of the Occupied Territories (by treating them like Palestinians) in order to obtain the freedom to commit greater acts of terrorism and brutality.  In short succession the IDF murders Rachel Corrie, mortally wounds Tom Hurndall and shoots the face off Brian Avery (see http://electronicintifada.net/v2/article1248.shtml, http://electronicintifada.net/v2/article1358.shtml and http://electronicintifada.net/v2/article1332.shtml.

2003-2007 Presidential advisers Perle, Feith and Wurmser wrote A Clean Break: A New Strategy for Securing the Realm (http://www.israeleconomy.org/strat1.htm) as a strategy to serve Israeli interests.  This strategy has become US policy.  Either these advisers cannot distinguish US interests from Israeli interests, or they can.  In either case, their behavior is probably treasonous, and Bush by accepting this policy recommendation has effectively renounced his duty to serve the USA and to uphold the constitution.  Bush is now guilty of high crimes and misdemeanors.  He should be impeached, convicted, removed from office, and sent to Guantanamo so that he can be interrogated to determine the extent of his treason.
Israel is racist.  Zionism is un-American and racist because Zionism presumes that the “national, ethnic or historical rights” of Jews to Palestine are superior to the human rights (including property rights and residence rights) of the native population – a statement of völkisch and colonialist racism. The only workable solution in Palestine requires without limitation: 

1.        absolute rejection of the concept of an ethnicity-based nation state as unethical,

2.        establishment of a nonracial multicultural democracy in Palestine,

3.        a sincere apology from Zionists to the Palestinian people,

4.        complete restitution to Palestinians for their losses,

5.        return of all property to its rightful owners,

  1. repatriation of all Palestinians, who will receive full citizenship in the nonracial state, and  
  2. creation of Nuremberg-style tribunals for all Zionist perpetrators of crimes against humanity. 

Supporting the existence of Israel as a State for Jews is a total betrayal of fundamental American values.
