“[S]ome worldwide Jewish conspiracy that had the power to control events in several countries…”
The quote above is taken from a book review: Garret Wilson’s review of David Fromkin’s book A Peace to End All Peace: The Fall of the Ottoman Empire and the Creation of the Modern Middle East, which is an important book I read a few years ago.
When I was reading Fromkin’s book, I was surprised how often the author mentioned the fact that the primary source documents of the period contained numerous references to a powerful Jewish conspiracy controlling world events, including, especially, the Great War.
These references to a powerful Jewish conspiracy were not the ramblings of conspiracy theorists and anti-Semites, but were the expressed opinions of important government officials from virtually every nation involved in the Great War, including, especially, England, France, Egypt, Turkey, Germany, Russia, and the United States.
Neither Fromkin nor Wilson believe in this worldwide Jewish conspiracy, but they admit the original source documents indicate many important people during the Great War did believe in it. Fromkin and Wilson offer no proof to discount this conspiracy… they simply dismiss it, which is something I will not do.
Below are excerpts from Garret Wilson’s review of Fromkin’s important book, after a short passage (from Wikipedia) concerning World War I.
Most people know little-to-nothing about World War I and are surprised to discover World War II was only a continuation of World War I… and that we are continuing to fight that same Great War today…
World War I
“World War I, also known as the First World War or the Great War, was a global war centred in Europe that began on 28 July 1914 and lasted until 11 November 1918. More than 9 million combatants and 7 million civilians died as a result of the war, a casualty rate exacerbated by the belligerents’ technological and industrial sophistication, and tactical stalemate. It was one of the deadliest conflicts in history, paving the way for major political changes, including revolutions in many of the nations involved…”

World War I in Photos
“One hundred years ago, in the summer of 1914, a series of events set off an unprecedented global conflict that ultimately claimed the lives of more than 16 million people, dramatically redrew the maps of Europe, and set the stage for the 20th Century.”

“Published with a new afterword from the author—the classic, bestselling account of how the modern Middle East was created
“The Middle East has long been a region of rival religions, ideologies, nationalisms, and ambitions. All of these conflicts—including the hostilities between Arabs and Israelis, and the violent challenges posed by Iraq’s competing sects—are rooted in the region’s political inheritance: the arrangements, unities, and divisions imposed by the Allies after the First World War.
“In A Peace to End All Peace, David Fromkin reveals how and why the Allies drew lines on an empty map that remade the geography and politics of the Middle East. Focusing on the formative years of 1914 to 1922, when all seemed possible, he delivers in this sweeping and magisterial book the definitive account of this defining time, showing how the choices narrowed and the Middle East began along a road that led to the conflicts and confusion that continue to this day.
“A new afterword from Fromkin, written for this edition of the book, includes his invaluable, updated assessment of this region of the world today, and on what this history has to teach us.”

A Peace To End All Peace by David Fromkin

“The British decided to set up Hussein as a sort of “Pope” for Islam, so that Britain could control Arabia through Hussein. Unfortunately for them, such a position for Hussein was not possible due to the political and social arrangements in the Middle East, so the British wound up stationing troops for years in an effort to control the territories over which they now wanted power. To make matters worse for Britain, Russia changed sides.
“Adding to all this turmoil was the (incorrect) suspicion by Britains and many other Europeans of some worldwide Jewish conspiracy that had the power to control events in several countries. Hoping to use this power to their advantage, Britain made overtures to Jewish Zionism by issuing the Balfour Declaration which advocated a Jewish national home in Palestine, which originally included Jordan. Implementing such a declaration wasn’t easy, not only because some Arabs didn’t like an influx of Jews but because even some local British governors and military promoted Arab uprisings. Although British promises to the Jews and to the Arabs were ambiguous as to boundaries and timetables, Britain never intended to satisfy the agreements in the first place.
“By 1922, the year that everything in the Middle East seems to culminate, the USSR was formed; Britain tinkered with elections in the new state of Iraq to set up and control Feisal (Hussein’s son) as ruler; Britain set up Abdullah (Hussein’s other son) in Jordan; ibn Saud, who kept causing problems with Abdullah, was given Saudi Arabia; and Britain managed to mollify France by parceling out Syria and Lebanon…
“…Kitchener… vehemently insisted on authorizing Cairo to respond immediately and to reach agreement with Hussein… Authorized and directed to do so by London, Sir Henry McMahon then resumed the correspondence with Mecca—the famous McMahon letters, the meaning of which has been debated so much and so long by partisans of Arab and Jewish causes in Palestine” (182). But effectively, “Britain did not bind herself to support Hussein’s claims anywhere at all” (183). McMahon, an experienced bureaucrat, had seen the need to be completely noncommittal” (184). Gilbert Clayon later summarized that “‘Luckily, we have been very careful indeed to commit ourselves to nothing whatsoever.’ …In London the Foreign Office took the view that the promises would never become due for payment: that Britain had pledged herself to support Arab independence only if the Arab half o the Ottoman Empire rose against the Sultan…” (185).
“While most Palestinian Jews chose to avoid involvement in the world war, David Ben-Gurion and Itzhak Ben Zvi, former law students at the University of Constantinople who were leaders of the Labor Zionist movement, offered to organize a Palestinian Jewish army in 1914 to defend Ottoman Palestine. But, instead of accepting their offer, Djemal deported them and other Zionist leaders in 1915″ (211)…
“The Balfour Declaration, 2 November 1917:
“Dear Lord Rothschild, I have much pleasure in conveying to you, on behalf of His Majesty’s Government, the following declaration of sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations which has been submitted to, and approved by, the Cabinet: His Majesty’s Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.” I should be grateful if you would bring this declaration to the knowledge of the Zionist Federation” (297).
“Baghdad, along with Jerusalem, was [in the early 1900s] one of the two great Jewish cities of Asia, and a thousand years before had become the seat of the exilarch—the head of the Jewish religion in the eastern diaspora—and thus the capital of oriental Judaism” (306)…
“Around 75 percent of the land allocated to be divided between Jews and Palestinians “had already been given to an Arab dynasty [, Abdullah, son of Hussein,] that was not Palestinian.” As this posed a problem, “The newly created province of Transjordan, later to become the independent state of Jordan, gradually drifted into existence as an entity separate from the rest of Palestine; indeed, today it is often forgotten that Jordan was ever part of Palestine” (514).
“The Arab complaints about Jewish land purchases were thin; most of the complainers sold land to Jews. “The genuine grievance was that of the impoverished Arab peasantry. As socialists, the Jewish farmers were opposed to the exploitation of others and therefore did all their own work; when Jews bought Arab farms the Arab farm laborers therefore lost their jobs” (522)…”
“On 8 October 1922 Andrew Bonary Law, the retired leader of the Unionist-Conservative Party, wrote a letter to two newspapers. “We cannot alone act as policeman of the world,” he said, urging France and others to assist in enforcing the settlement in Germany (554).
“[Britain] placed Fuad I on the thrown of Egypt in , and made Egypt a nominally independent protectorate by the terms of the Allenby Declaration of 1922. She established a protectorate in Iraq by her treaty that year with that country: a country that she had created and upon whose thrown she had placed her own nominee, Feisal. By the terms of the Palestine Mandate of 1922 and Churchill’s White Paper for Palestine in 1922, Transjordan was set on the road to a political existence separate from that of Palestine—Abdullah, appointed by Britain, was to permanently preside over the new entity by a decision made in 1922—while west of the Jordan, Jews were promised a National Home and non-Jews were promised full rights. Independence or autonomy for the Kurds, which had been on the agenda in 1922, somehow disappeared from the agenda in 1922, so that there was to be no Kurdistan: it was a nondecision of 1922 that was, in effect, a decision. In 1922, too, Britain imposed frontier agreements upon Ibn Saud that established boundaries between Saudi Arabia, Iraq, and Kuwait (560).”

Zionism and the Third Reich
“Early in 1935, a passenger ship bound for Haifa in Palestine left the German port of Bremerhaven. Its stern bore the Hebrew letters for its name, “Tel Aviv,” while a swastika banner fluttered from the mast. And although the ship was Zionist-owned, its captain was a National Socialist Party member. Many years later a traveler aboard the ship recalled this symbolic combination as a “metaphysical absurdity”. Absurd or not, this is but one vignette from a little-known chapter of history: The wide-ranging collaboration between Zionism and Hitler’s Third Reich…”

The Transfer Agreement
“In an interview for Book TV, investigative journalist Edwin Black talks [at the North Bethesda, Maryland Barnes and Noble with a rabbi from Rockville, Maryland] about his extraordinary book, The Transfer Agreement and its 25th Anniversary republication.
“The Transfer Agreement is Edwin Black’s compelling, award-winning story of a negotiated arrangement in 1933 between Zionist organizations and the Nazis to transfer some 50,000 Jews, and $100 million of their assets, to Jewish Palestine in exchange for stopping the worldwide Jewish-led boycott threatening to topple the Hitler regime in its first year…”
