What Would the Hon. Winston S. Churchill Say?

“The Socialists more than any other Party in the State, have broken their word in Palestine and by indescribable mis-management have brought us into widespread hatred and disrepute there and in many parts of the world.” [Churchill, October 3, 1948, North Wales.]

The Illustrated Sunday Herald of February 8, 1920, published Churchill’s monumental, “Zionism versus Bolshevism: A Struggle for the soul of the Jewish People.” By way of an introduction, he draws attention to the miserable state of Russia, where of all the countries in the world, the Jews were the most cruelly treated, and he contrasts it with England which was “providentially preserved” amid the awful perils of the times, nothing has since happened in world history to detract from Disraeli’s confident assertion. Apparently, he recalled the latter once saying, “The Lord deals with the nations as the nations deal with the Jews.”

Winston Churchill makes some extraordinary observations about Jews, mostly complimentary. “The conflict between good and evil which proceeds unceasingly in the breast of man nowhere reaches such an intensity as in the Jewish race.——-We owe to the Jews in the Christian revelation a system of ethics which, even if it were entirely separated from the supernatural, would be incomparably the most precious possession of mankind——And it may well be that this same outstanding race may at the present time in the actual process of another system of morals and philosophy———.”

He then categorizes the Jews into 3 political groups, 2 of which he views as helpful, and the 3rd “absolutely destructive”. In recognizing the Jews as a people of peculiar genius , he observes contrasts to be more vivid, extremes more widely separated with resulting consequences more decisive.

In describing “National” Jews, dwelling in every country throughout the world, who identify themselves with that country, enter into its national life and, while adhering faithfully to their own religion, regard themselves as citizens in the fullest sense of the State, which has received them. Such a Jew, living in England would say, “I am an English man practicing the Jewish faith.”

The International Jews are mostly those reared among the unhappy populations of countries where Jews are persecuted on account of their race. Generally, they have forsaken the faith of their forefathers, and “divorced from their minds all spiritual hopes of the next world.” Amongst them, he references Trotsky, Bela Kun, Rosa Luxembourg, and Emma Goldman.

As for Terrorist Jews, Churchill sees no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about “the Russian Revolution, by these international and for the most part atheistic Jews, noting with the exception of Lenin, the majority of the leaders were Jews. In fact, in the Soviet institutions the predominance of Jews is even more astonishing. In Hungary, the same evil prominence was driven by Jews in the brief period of terror during which Bela Kun ruled. And, yes, even in Germany, especially Bavaria, “so far as this madness” had been allowed “to prey upon the temporary prostration of the German people.”

Interestingly, Churchill believed that Zionism offered a sphere to the political conceptions of the Jewish race. “In violent contrast to international communism, it presents to the Jew” a national idea of a commanding character. As a result of the conquest of Palestine, “it has fallen to the British Government to have the opportunity and the responsibility of securing for the Jewish race all over the world, a home and center of national life.”

Trotsky attacked the Zionists vigorously, the cruel penetration of his mind leaving him with no doubt as to the correctness of his beliefs. For Churchill, the struggle which had emerged between the Zionists and the Bolsheviks was a ” little less than a struggle for the soul of the Jewish people.”

Churchill strongly recommended to world Jewry who were loyal to resort to every measure for combating the Bolshevik conspiracy. “But a negative resistance to Bolshevism is not enough.” Practicable alternatives were needed—-in building up with the utmost possible rapidity a Jewish national center in Palestine, which would be “a symbol of Jewish unity and the temple of Jewish glory.”

Reverting now to once a colony of Great Brittan, America, having gained independence in July 4, 1776. Since the 1850s the Democratic Party and the Republican Party have dominated a two-party system of government. Despite their distinct differences, both subscribed to classical democracy. Although at times, there had been almost unlimited competition, it never approximated to violence and revolution. This is no longer the case.

Today, the Democrat Party openly harbors anti-Semites and Islamists who support terrorism. Included are socialists bordering on communism whom Churchill would name as Bolsheviks. Gone is traditional Liberalism to be replaced by radical Leftism.

A few news headlines the current pervasive mood in the US:
[a] Black Lives Matter and Self-Hating Jews [Tablet].
[b] The Manhattan district attorney has reduced charges against Black Lives Matter group leader [Newsmax].
[c] The fatal flaw in leftist American politics [YouTube].
[d] United States of Socialism. Who’s behind it. Why it’s evil. How to Stop it. [Amazon].
[e] How to destroy America in three easy steps [Amazon].
[f] On the protests and the far left [YouTube].
[g] Black Lives Matter and INTIFA are trying to destroy America from the inside. Its working [News Break].

On May 31, 2020, NOQ Report published, “These riots eliminate any doubt the radical left hates America” by J.D.Rucker. It serves as a very well prepared background to what regrettably may come to pass. The author asserts that they aren’t looking for reforms, but rather literally want to burn it all down and rebuild it as a Marxist dystopia.

The subject author contends that Black Lives Matter is the tip of the angry spear, so to speak. They and their supporters make up the bulk of the rioters looting businesses and attacking anyone who is either not aligned with their goals or simply in the wrong place at the wrong time. Undoubtedly, Antifa is also clearly present and would appear to be the ringleaders on the ground. They are often first at breaking windows, launching the free-for-all looting and destruction in retail stores across American cities.

Rucker suggests that lessons in Chinese Communist Party propaganda has influenced the mainstream media’s narrative of “mostly peaceful protestors with a few bad apples.” This, as an effort to attract as many individuals to the “protests as possible.” He feels that this initiative is not limited to the anti-Trump media.

We have moved beyond the George Floyd episode, and hindsight would suggest that it served as a foil for a dream established over the years. President Trump refers to it as domestic terrorism.

In reference to Item [g] above, the editor warns against the rise of the radical left which has cast a spell on the liberal and religious institutions and popular culture. Unlike most other media channels, we are informed that it was difficult to find a media outlet, which was willing to criticize the actions of those who perpetrated violence on police, emergency services, and the public following the initial protests.

Points raised:

* The actions of radical groups like BLM and Antifa have begun to destabilize Western society.
* Freedom of speech is opposed by BLM since at its heart it is a communist organization, embracing one of the key tenets of Marxism – Group Think. A study of their website demonstrates how far to the left they are. Confirmation by virtue of abolition of the nuclear family, capitalism, the police and state structures.
* A “commission” has been set up to allow for the systematic eradication of history.
* It wishes to usher in a radically socialist new world order.
* BLM is a radical Marxist organization, since its communist principles oppose those of Western liberal democracy, 2,000 years in the making.
* If the left is so concerned with black lives, then why do they not protest about the disproportionate number of killings by black people on other black people? Or for that matter, why are they not as fixated on killings of white people by black people?

In the final analysis, BLM’s short term goal, like that of Antifa, is to oust Trump, and their long term goal is to overthrow the US government. Both are “goon squads” for higher-ups like George Soros and other globalist representatives.

There is a question that does not appear to have been asked. Among the less than peaceful rioters, how many are illegal immigrants? And yet another. Why was the comparatively large number of black police chiefs /commissioners of major US cities not mentioned? By published accounts, the number is 23. Newsweek did cover this topic.

The existing chaos and rioting did not commence recently. It commenced 8 years prior to 2016, with the election of Obama. An extraordinary commentary on this period has been written by Jim Cegielski on Leader Call dated May 15, 2020, entitled “Obama’s plot against America.” He sees the US as a divided country with one side committed to patriotism, love of the country, valuing the principles established by the Founding Fathers through the Constitution, Declaration of Independence, in addition to faith in God.

On the other side, there are those who hate the country, its president, freedom, capitalism and religion. This has manifested itself in willing to do anything to “burn it all to the ground, including rooting for a depression, attempting a coup and siding with enemies.”

It effectively commenced with Obama’s “Apologize for being an American” world tour. His socialism commenced with Obamacare, attacks on Israel, refusal to refer to radical terrorism as Islamic, opening borders, all of which should have made us wonder whether we had placed an “enemy of the state at the helm of our country.”

Newly released documents now prove that Obama’s FBI, in conjunction with the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee, “acted above the law and with extreme political bias, targeting people for prosecution rather than investigating crimes.” The Democratic Party, since it became the opposition, has proved over and over that it will do anything for power—–“-even willing to take down a sitting president.” They “love criminals and hate law enforcement. They love radical Islam and hate our military.”

Zahava Englard Shapiro has crafted a “Note to American Jewish leaders: The [Democratic] Party is over”, published on August 25, 2019. It is a grave warning on the impact to the Democrats by radical Muslims and a derivative of the Spanish Inquisition. As she informs us, they are loud, they are focused and they are determined to advance their agenda – a major part of which consists of undermining the State of Israel, destroying US-Israel relations and ultimately Israel. Reps. Rashida Tlaib, Ilhan Omar, Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez and Ayana Pressley are extremely effective in ” the ominous direction the Democratic Party has been moving in.”

Nonie Dawish is the founder of Arabs for Israel and has authored a column on the same individuals entitled, “The Squad – a new culture in town”, whom she feels have burst onto the political scene to revive the dismantled Obama dreams of fundamentally transforming America from a capitalist Constitutional Republic Superpower to just another Socialist Democrat State. They——-unabashedly embrace Socialism, anti-Americanism and Anti-Semitism and they “flaunt an especially radical kind of Islam that is pro-Hamas and has been abandoned today by several moderate Muslim countries.”

Ayaan Hirsi Ali, born in Somalia, was named one of Time magazines 100 Most Influential People of 2005 and authored her well known autobiography, “Infidel”. The New York Times published her “Raised on Hatred” on January 17, 2013. One paragraph alone conveys the theme of this outstanding essay. “For far too long the pervasive Middle Eastern qualification of Jews as murderers and blood suckers was dismissed in the West as extreme views expressed by radical fringe groups. But they are not. In truth, those Muslims who think of Jews as friends and fellow human beings with a right to their own state are a minority, and are under intense pressure to change their minds.”

Hirsi’s, “Anti-Semitism is hard to unlearn, but it’s possible – even for Ilhan Omar” was featured by Mosaic on July 16, 2019. She was also a major subject in Andrea Levin’s comparison, “Omar Vs. Hirsi Ali: A Tale of Two Somalis” in the Jewish Press of May 5,2019.:

The other side of the coin: “Soros hacks reveal donations to B&M.” “Sanders refused to condemn Farrakhan official’s anti-Semitic screed.” “The Socialist Evolution of Bernie Sanders.” “How Bernie Sanders became a favorite among Muslim Americans”.

What would Churchill say:
[a] “Democracy is the worst form of government, except for all the others.”
[b] In consideration of horrific mayhem and rioting, recall of the 1929-1936 period in Palestine, Churchill advocated that a “picked force of white gendarmerie” be established for Palestine—-should be comprised of men who had served with crown forces during Ireland’s War of Independence.”
