Open letter to British Conservative Party leader David Cameron

Dear Mr. Cameron,

After reading the published text of your answers to questions put to you by Danny Finkelstein at the annual business lunch of the Conservative Friends of Israel, the following question occurred to me:

Would you still declare yourself to be a “Zionist” if you knew what Zionism actually was and is?

I’ll be suggesting, not asserting, that if your answer is “yes”, it would amount to an endorsement by you of Zionism’s crimes, as well as putting you at odds with the moral values and ethical principles of Judaism.

But let’s start with what you actually said. “If (my emphasis added) what you mean by Zionist is someone who believes that the Jews have a right to a homeland in Israel and a right to their country, then yes I am a Zionist, and I’m proud of the fact that Conservative politicians down the ages have played a huge role in helping to bring this about.”

The first thing you need to know if you are to be anything other than a Zionist propagandist (like Tony Blair was and I fear Prime Minister Brown might be)is the difference between Judaism and Zionismand why they are total opposites.

JUDAISM is the religion of Jews (not “the” Jews because not all Jews are religious)and, like Christianity and Islam, it has at its core a set of ethnical principles and moral values.

ZIONISM, which proclaimed its existence some four decades before the obscenity of the Nazi holocaust, is a secular, colonialist ideology, which made a mockery of, and has contempt for, the moral values and ethical principles of Judaism. How so? Short answer in two related parts.

The first is thatthe return of Jews to the land of biblical Israelby the efforts of man? one possible but woefully inadequate definition of Zionism – wasPROSCRIBED by Judaism. (Not many of today’s Jews seem to be aware of this but it is a fact). Put another way, Zionism was, is, a rebellion against Judaism.

The second is that Israel was created, mainly, by Zionist terrorism and ethnic cleansing. And this crime, which dispossessed about three quarters of the indigenous Arabs of Palestine of their land and their rights, didn’t happen by accident. It was pre-planned.

At this point, Mr. Cameron, I’ll recommend two books which you and your shadow foreign secretary would be well advised to read if you want to be informed enough to play a part if stopping the countdown to Armageddon.

The first is The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine. It’s the latest work of Professor Ilan Pappe, Israel’s leading “new” or “revisionist” (honest) historian. Though at the very top of Zionism’s official “S.H.I.T” (“Self Hating Israeli Traitor”) List, Ilan is respected and admired by many people of all faiths and none around the world, for his humanity and his courage as well as his scholarship.

The second isA Threat From Within, A CENTURY OF JEWISH OPPOSITION TO ZIONISM. Its author is a Canadian Jew, Yakov Rabkin, who is Professor of History at the Universityof Montreal. When Yakov was in London, I asked him, on the record, a very explicit question: Is it reasonable to say that the Jews of the world now have a choice to make? either to reaffirm their commitment to Judaism and renounce Zionism, or to reaffirm or affirm their commitment to Zionism and renounce Judaism?”He replied with one word, “YES!”

You said “the Jews”(presumably meaning any Jew and/or all the Jews of the world) have a right to a homeland in Israel and a right to “their country.”

Let’s take first of all the notion of “their country”.

It is a fact that many if not most of the Jews who went to Palestine in answer to Zionism’s call hadno biological connection to the ancient Hebrews. The incoming Zionist Jews were mainly foreign nationals of many lands, descended from those who became Jewish byconversion to Judaism centuries after the fall of the ancient Jewish kingdomof Israeland what is called the “dispersal” into “oblivion” of its people. The notion that there aretwo entire peoples with an equally valid claim to the same land is an historical nonsense. The relatively few Jewswitha valid claim were, are, the descendants of thosewho stayed IN Palestinethrough everything. They numbered only a few thousand at the time of Zionism’s birth; they regarded themselves as Palestinians; and they were fiercely opposed to Zionism’s colonial enterprise? because they rightly feared that it would makethemas well as the incoming, alien Zionist Jews enemies of the Arabs among whom they had lived in peace and security.
