Encyclopedia of the Palestine Problem


Dedicated to the memory of two great Arab leaders who defended Palestine and its Holy Places throughout their lives, His Majesty the late King Faisal Ibn Abdul Aziz of Saudi Arabia and His Eminence the late Haj Mohamad Amin El Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and Palestine and Chairman of the Arab Higher Committee for Palestine.


Before and during World War II millions of gentiles, including Poles, Dutch, Norwegians, French, Serbs, Greeks, Russians, Ukrainians, Germans, Austrians, and others, as well as Jews, were imprisoned, tortured, put in concentration camps and robbed of their worldly possessions by the Nazis.

The Jews of the world, in a world-wide conference called in Amsterdam in July, 1933, declared a "holy war" against Germany. Mr. Samuel Untermeyer, President of the World Jewish Economic Federation which met in Amsterdam, upon his return to the United States delivered the historic declaration of a "holy war" against Germany in a nation-wide radio broadcast over the Columbia Broadcasting System. The full text of that declaration was published in the New York Times on August 7, 1933, in which Mr. Untermeyer, among many other things, said the following:

I deeply appreciate your enthusiastic greeting on my arrival today, which I quite understand is addressed not to me personally but to the holy war in the cause of humanity in which we are embarked. Jews and non-Jews alike, for we are equally concerned that the work of centuries shall not be undone, and that civilization shall not be allowed to die. It is a war that must be waged unremittingly until the black clouds of bigotry, race hatred and fanaticism that have descended upon what was once Germany, but is now medieval Hitlerland, have been dispersed. If we will but enlist to a man and persist in our purpose, the bright sun of civilization will again shine upon Germany. and the world will be a safer place in which to dwell ... What we are proposing and have already gone far toward doing, is to prosecute a purely defensive economic boycott that will undermine the Hitler regime and bring the German people to their senses by destroying their export trade on which their very existence depends. They have flaunted and persisted in flaunting and defying world opinion. We proposed to and are organizing world opinion to express itself in the only way Germany can be made to understand.

Zionist leaders in the United States, in Great Britain and throughout the world, not only waged theirWholy war" against Germany and the Germans in the economic field, but they initiated a world-wide propaganda campaign to block any avenue of understanding, or settlement of disputes, between Germany, Great Britain and France. The pressure which Zionists were exerting upon Great Britain and France to wage war against Germany was quite apparent everywhere and could not be mistaken. The following are only a few of the many available quotations which indicate the great pressure exerted by Zionist leaders throughout the world for unleashing World War II against Germany. The late Mr. James Forrestal, Secretary of Defense in the Truman Administration, wrote in The Forrestal Diaries (New York, 1951, pp. 121-122):

27 December 1945-Played golf today with Joe Kennedy (Joseph P. Kennedy, who was Roosevelt's Ambassador to Great Britain in the ycars immediately before the war). I asked him about his conversations with Roosevelt and Neville Chamberlain from 1938 on. He said Chamberlain's position in 1938 was that England had nothing with which to fight and that she could not risk going to war with Hitler. Kennedy's view: That Hitler would have fought Russia without any later conflict with England if it had not been for Bullitt's (William C. Bullitt, then Ambassador to France) urging on Roosevelt in the summer of 1939 that the Germans must be faced down about Poland; neither the French nor the British would have made Poland a cause of war if it had not been for the constant needling from Washington. Bullitt, he said, kept telling Roosevelt that the Germans wouldn't fight, Kennedy that they would, and that they would overrun Europe. Chamberlain, he says, stated that America and the world Jews had forced England into war.

The Sunday Chronicle of London, another leading British newspaper, on January 2, 1938, under the headline '500,000,000 POUND FIGHTING FUND FOR THE JEWS" published an article in which the following appeared:

The Jew is facing one of the biggest crises in his troubled history. In Poland, Rumania, Germany, Austria, his back is to the wall. But now he is going to hit back hard. This week the leaders of International Jewry will meet in a village near Geneva to devise a counter-offensive. Now a united front composed of all sections of Jewish parties is to be formed. It will show the anti-Semitic governments of Europe that the Jew insists on fair play. The great international Jewish finan- ciers are to contribute approximately 500,000,000 Pounds sterling ($2,500,000,000). This sum will be used to fight the persecuting States. The battle will be fought on the world's stock exchanges. Since the majority of the anti-Semitic States are burdened with heavy international debts, they will find their very existence threatened. A boycott throughout Europe of their export products by way of the retailer may undermine the present uncertain economic stability of several of the anti-Semitic countries.

The eminent Zionist Rabbi Maurice L. Perlzweig, head of the British Section of the World Jewish Congress, stated to a Canadian audience as reported by the Toronto Evening Telegram of February 26, 1940: "The World Jewish Congress has been at war with Germany for seven ycars."

Geoffrey Le Mesurier Mander, an important Member of the House of Commons, wrote in The Jewish Standard (London) of April 17, 1941: "The cause of the Jews throughout the world is the cause for which Great Britain and her Allies are fighting ..." In an editorial in the issue of July 24, 1942, of The American Hebrew (New York), a Zionist weekly, we find the following:

Whenever an American or a Filipino fell at Bataan or Corregidor or at any other of the now historic spots where MacArthur's men put their remarkable fight, their survivors could have said with truth: the real reason that boy went to his death was because Hitler's anti-semitic movement suc- ceeded in Germany.

Mr. Ludwig Lewisohn, Honorary Secretary of the Zionist Organization of America, in an article written for the Septem- ber, 1942, issue of the Jewish Mirror (New York) stated:

The Jewish people is the symbol of the nature of this war. No one else. Nothing else ...On this central point, on this very heart and core of the whole matter the West is still recalcitrant. I know intelligent Jews who still today try to repress the character of this war by attempting to liken the attack on the Jewish people to other acts of war... The National Socialists have one tremendous advantage over us. They repress noth- ing. They deny nothing. They know what war is about ... On March 2, 1942, Robert Ley, Minister of Labor in the Nazi government, declared in an address in Posen: "Germany fights on many fronts and has many enemies but its chief enemy is world Jewry and its most important front is the Jewish front." Is that clear enough? ... Yes, the Jews are the chief enemies of National Socialism ... This is the Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the end of the whole matter. Christendom repressed the persecution of the German Jews in 1933. Had it not done so there would have been no war. American boys would not be dying in all corners of the world today. A few divisions and a small army of occupation would have finished Hitler ....

Senator Wayne Morse of Oregon delivered a speech on December 20, 195 1, as reported in The National Jewish Post (Indianapolis) of December 28, 1951,in which he stated that "One of the major causes for our going to war against Hitler was the persecution of the Jews in Germany."

World Zionist leaders achieved their objective by driving the world into the Second World War. They succeeded in crushing Nazi Germany through the forces of Great Britain, the Soviet Union and the United States. Fifty million gentiles and Jews perished during that war.

The United Nations concluded the Agreement of August 8, 1945 and adopted the Charter of the International Military Tribunal to try the Nazi war criminals.

More than 30,000 Nazis and Fascists war criminals were tried and convicted. Many were hanged and many are still serving their sentences. The Israelis abducted Adolph Eichman from Argentina, tried him and executed him. Nazi war criminals are still being hunted, caught and tried.

The Zionist and Israeli leaders have followed in the footsteps of the Nazis. 3,000 Zionist and Israeli political and military leaders, during a period from 1939-1989, par- ticipated as organizers, instigators and accomplices in the commission of crimes of terrorism, crimes against peace, war crimes, crimes against humanity, and genocide against the Palestinians and peoples of Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Egypt. All members of the Hagana, Palmach, Irgun Z'vai Leumi, the Stern Gang, the Jewish Agency and the Jewish National Fund are charged with these crimes. Many of them became Presidents, Cabinet Ministers, Generals, officers of the Armed Forces and continued to participate in the commis- sion of the aforementioned crimes. Many of them occupy high positions in Israeli society. It seems that participating in the commission of these crimes was, and still is, an essential qualification for advancement in the Israeli government and charged with these crimes are still at large, enjoying the fruits of their crimes. They are referred to as heroes. Many of them are being honored and received as heads of State, Prime Ministers, cabinet ministers, high government officials and scholars of an allegedly democratic state. The Palestinians who have been victims of these crimes are until today con- demned to a life of a nation in exile deprived of all their rights. Their homeland is occupied. Thousands of them were mur- dered, hundreds of thousands have been imprisoned and tortured, suffering until today under barbaric Israeli occupa- tion.

The victims are called terrorists, murderers and criminals and the real terrorists and war criminals are being received as respectable representatives of a democratic society.

I prepared this encyclopedia as an authentic record of terrorist crimes. crimes against peace, war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide committed by the Zionist and Israeli leaders against the Palestinian people and the peoples of Lebanon, Syria, Jordan and Egypt. It is being published in order to record these crimes and serve as a guide in the future I for charging all Zionist and Israeli leaders who committed these crimes. I want to set the record straight. Zionist and Israeli leaders in Palestine must be tried for these crimes as a deterrent against the commission of crimes of terrorism, war crimes, crimes against humanity, crimes against peace and genocide.

I have been defending the rights of the Palestinian people since I was a law student in London before World War 11. Since 1948 I have studied, written about, and made speeches both inside and outside the United Nations about the Zionist and Israeli crimes. I have lived through this drama from the beginning to the end. I myself am a refugee. My house in Upper Baka, Jerusalem, my personal property, my furniture, my law office and books, the apartment house I built in Jerusalem and my banana plantation in Beisan were looted or usurped by the Zionists and Israeli war criminals. I am only one of millions of Palestinians who have suffered the same fate. The greatest Zionist and Israeli crime against me and six million other Palestinians is that they have deprived us of living in our ancestral homeland, Palestine, as citizens of our independent undivided Palestinian State.
