Peter Wilby, the editor of British magazine the New Statesman has apologized for the publication (February 2002) of a cover illustration (shown at the top) which pro-Israel Brits especially the Zionist Jews have claimed to be anti-Semitic.
Peter Wilby, however, says the magazine remained opposed to the policies of the Zionist regime and reassures readers it was not about to censor itself.
The Jewish lobby groups have also slammed the New Statsement for the publication of the articles by Dennis Sewell, on “Zionist media lobby” in Britain, and by John Pilger, on the relationship between Tony Blair and Ariel Sharon.
Jemima Khan, the ex-wife of the Pakistan politician Imran Khan – is a senior editor at the New Statesman.
Most of the Zionist leaders who have become the defenders of the so-called “Jewish Homeland” – were in fact Nazi collaborators. William James Martin has explained the Nionist-Nazi collaboeration in his July 8th article which can be read here.
In 1896, journalist Theodore Herzl’s book, Der Judenstaat (The Jews’ State), Herzl expressed his understanding of inevitability, permanence, and omnipresence of anti-Semitism and argued that the only solution was a separate state for Jews. Herzl stated, in his book:
“The Jewish question exists wherever Jews live in perceptable numbers. Where it does not exist, it is carried by Jews in the course of their migrations. We naturally move to those places where we are not persecuted, and there our presence produces persecution”.
In 1912, Chaim Weizman, Israel’s first president, and the Zionist advocate who had the most to do with lobbying the British for the Balfour Declaration of 1917, echoed this view, speaking to a Berlin audience:
“Each country can absorb only a limited number of Jews, if she doesn’t want disorder in her stomach. Germany already has too many Jews“.
The understanding of Herzl, as well as the Zionists, about the inevitability of anti-Semitism was possibly self-fulfilling, for rather than opposing anti-Semitism in the first half of the 20th century, the Zionists found common cause with Hitler, Eichmann, and the Nazis and used anti-Semitism and Nazism as a means of achieving their end which was the establishment of a Jewish state. The two reactionary movements shared the view that German Jews were living in that country as a ‘foreign race’ and that the racial divide was essential to maintain. The Zionists’ use of Nazism involved, among other things, the blocking of avenues of escape to other countries of Europe’s Jews and diverting them to Palestine, even as the death trains began to roll in Europe. The rise of Nazism and Hitler to power was never, or almost never, opposed by the Zionists prior to the establishment of Israel.
