Zionism's Historic Partnership with Anti-Semites

Nazis-Zionists: Two Sides of the Same Coin?
"Nazi-Zionist" medallion was issued by Goebbel's daily Der Angriff to commemorate a joint visit to Zionist Palestine by SS officer Leopold von Mildenstein and Zionist Federation official Kurt Tuchler. A series on their tour, "A Nazi Travels to Palestine," appeared in Der Angriff in late 1934. The inscription (right) says "A Nazi travels to Palestine." ("Zionism and the Third Reich")

"Nowadays, if any States raise a protest against us it is only pro forma at our discretion and by our direction, for their anti-Semitism is indispensable to us for the management of our lesser brethren." Protocols of Zion 9
Zionism is predicated on the dogma that anti-Semitism is a pervasive and untreatable condition among Gentiles. When anti-Semitism is not overt and violent, it is latent and awaiting the right conditions to manifest as pogroms.
Therefore, the only way Jews can escape this inherent anti-Semitism is by establishing a Jewish homeland. Zionist dogma further states that assimilation of Jews does not work; that ultimately even assimilated Jews will become victims of Gentile anti-Semitism.
Zionists from the beginning welcomed anti-Semitism as a means of undermining what Zionists believed was the sense of false security of Jews in western, liberal societies, and as the means by which Jews would be kept in a permanent state of neurosis.
Large and powerful organizations such as the US-based Anti-Defamation League of B'Nai B'rith exist mainly for the purpose of exaggerating the extent of anti-Semitism in order to keep Jews under the Zionist heel and keep Israeli coffers filled.
This article looks at the exploitation and the manufacturing of "anti-Semitism" by Zionism, and the way anti-Semites are manipulated by Zionists.
Theodor Herzl (1860-1904), the founder of modern Zionism, recognized that anti-Semitism would advance the creation of a separate state for Jews. Zionism offered the world a welcome "final solution of the Jewish question." In his "Diaries", Herzl stated: "Anti-Semites will become our surest friends, anti-Semitic countries our allies." (p.19)
Herzl's most fervent supporters were anti-Semites. Both Zionists and anti-Semites concur that Jews are an unassimilable minority who need to be removed from Gentile society. Hence, Zionists have historically aligned themselves with anti-Semites ranging from those in Czarist Russia to those in Nazi Germany.
Where the supposed latent anti-Semitism of Gentiles fails to manifest dramatically, and at times when Jews are in the process of assimilating into Gentile society (as they were in pre-Hitler Germany) Zionists provoke, encourage and even directly create anti-Semitic movements and incidents.
In the wake of the Dreyfus Affair Herzl used the opportunity as an opening for his separatism, writing his Zionist manifesto, Der Judenstaat, in 1895. Anti-Semites welcomed The Jewish State from the start. Of his publishers, Herzl noted in his Diary:
"Was at the printing office and talked with the managers ... both are presumably anti-Semites. They greeted me with genuine cordiality. They liked my pamphlet." The Diaries of Theodor Herzl, New York, 1962, p. 91.
HERZL & DRUMONT
Herzl formed an early alliance with France's leading anti-Semite, Eduard Drumont, who had been the head of the anti-Dreyfus agitation. Drumont had written the influential anti-Semitic book La France Juive (1886) and was editor of La Libre Parole. Herzl wrote of Drumont:
"But I owe to Drumont a great deal of the present freedom of my concepts, because he is an artist." Herzl persuaded Drumont to review his manifesto in La Libre Parole, which he did favourably on January 15 1897.
[Drumont] "praises the Zionists of Herzl's persuasion for not seeing in us fanatics ... but citizens who exercise the right of self-defense."
Herzl was to write of the Paris experience: "In Paris ... I achieved a freer attitude towards anti-Semitism, which I now began to understand historically and to pardon. Above all I recognise the emptiness and futility of trying to 'combat' anti-Semitism."
In his Austrian homeland it was among the anti-Semites that Herzl also found the most immediate support. Herzl's biographer Desmond Stewart, writes: "... Already in 1896 Austrian anti-Semites were finding ammunition in Herzl's arguments, as would the followers of Drumont ..."
Max Nordau, Herzl's deputy, expressed the affinity between the Zionists and Drumont in an interview with La Libre Parole, stating that Zionism "is not a question of religion, but exclusively of race, and there is no one with whom I am in greater agreement on this position than M Drumont."
HERZL & VON PLEHVE
In Russia, support among anti-Semites was also effusive. Herzl's chief ally was the Russian interior minister Von Plehve, whom he met in August 1903. Just four months previously Von Plehve had been organizing pogroms at Kishinev. As Herzl was explaining his Zionist project, Von Plehve interrupted, according to Herzl's own account: "You don't have to justify the movement to me. Vous prêchez un converti" (You are preaching to a convert).
As in Nazi Germany from 1933, Zionism was given favourable governmental treatment in Czarist Russia. Von Plehve wrote a letter pledging "moral and material assistance", which became "Herzl's most cherished asset."
Due to Herzl's efforts in Russia, "there was no prohibition on Zionist activities and an official permit was even given for the holding of the second conference of Russian Zionists at Minsk (September 1902)."
ZIONISTS & NAZI GERMANY
Without Nazism Zionism might not have succeeded beyond being a fringe movement among Jewry. Such was the assimilation of German Jewry and its full identification with the German nation that Herzl's original aim of having the First Zionist Congress held in Germany had to be changed to Switzerland due to the opposition of German Jews.
Prior to Hitler, Zionism represented a minor faction within German Jewry. Whilst some Jews were conspicuous in their leadership of Marxism, communism and various anti-national movements, there was also a large and significant movement of German nationalism among Jews who regarded themselves as 'Germans of Jewish descent.'
If some Jews had been involved in revolutionary movements designed to undermine the war effort, many more gave a disproportionate sacrifice fighting for Germany during World War I. 100,000 Jews had fought for the Kaiser, of whom 10,000 were volunteers. A massive 35,000 Jews were decorated.
The prominent businessman and statesman Walther Rathenau, German Foreign Minister after World War I expressed the widespread sentiment:
"I am a German of Jewish stock. My nation is the German nation, my fatherland is the German fatherland, and my faith is the German faith, which transcends the various confessions."
Rathenau was assassinated by a right-wing (pro-Nazi) militant.
After the war German-Jewish veterans formed the nucleus of a nationalist movement that was not only anti-Communist but also anti-Zionist. The League of Nationalist German Jews declared:
"Our way is not the way of the Zionists... of people who clearly hesitate between Germany and Jewry... of internationalist fanatics... We reject a Jewish united front, the only united front we care for is a German one..."
The highly respected Lt. Col. Theodor Duesterberg, descended from a line of rabbis, led the nationalist war veterans' association, Stahlhelm. In 1932 he contested the presidency of Germany for the National People's Party.
The National Association of Jewish Combat Veterans was also opposed to both Zionism and the Left, and advocated the "volk community".
But it was the Zionists to whom the Nazis looked to represent German Jewry, as both Nazism and Zionism shared a common aim: opposition to Jewish assimilation.
The anti-Zionist Jewish author Leni Brenner states in his Zionism in the Age of the Dictators:
"...Believing that the ideological similarities between the two movements - their contempt for liberalism, their common volkish racism and, of course, their mutual conviction that Germany could never be the homeland of its Jews - could induce the Nazis to support them, the [Zionists] solicited the patronage of Adolf Hitler, not once but repeatedly, after 1933".
Brenner cites Rabbi Joachim Prinz, a leading Zionist in Germany who was to become president of the American Jewish Congress:
"In 1937, after leaving Berlin for America, Rabbi Joachim Prinz wrote of his
experiences in Germany and alluded to a [Zionist] memorandum which was sent to the Nazi Party on 21 June 1933. Prinz's article candidly describes the Zionist mood in the first months of 1933:
"Everyone in Germany knew that only the Zionists could responsibly represent the Jews in dealings with the Nazi government. We all felt sure that one day the government would arrange a round table conference with the Jews, at which - after the riots and atrocities of the revolution had passed - the new status of German Jewry could be considered. The government announced very solemnly that there was no country in the world which tried to solve the Jewish problem as seriously as did Germany.
Solution of the Jewish question? It was our Zionist dream! We never denied the existence of the Jewish question! Dissimilation? It was our own appeal! ... In a statement notable for its pride and dignity, we called for a conference."
The memorandum emphasized the kinship between the two ideologies:
"... An answer to the Jewish question truly satisfying to the national state can be brought about only with the collaboration of the Jewish movement that aims at a social, cultural, and moral renewal of Jewry ... a rebirth of national life, such as is occurring in German life through adhesion to Christian and national values, must also take place in the Jewish national group. For the Jew, too, origin, religion, community of fate and group consciousness must be of decisive significance in the shaping of his life ...
"On the foundation of the new state, which has established the principle of
race, we wish so to fit our community into the total structure so that for us too, in the sphere assigned to us, fruitful activity for the Fatherland is possible ... Our acknowledgement of Jewish nationality provides for a clear and sincere relationship to the German people and its national and racial realities.
"Precisely because we do not wish to falsify these fundamentals, because we, too, are against mixed marriage and are for maintaining the purity of the Jewish group ..." (Joachim Prinz, Zionism under the Nazi Government, Young Zionist (London, November 1937.)
Makow Comment: The purpose of anti-Semites is to conflate resentment of the Masonic Jewish central bankers with Jews in general, so the issue of the bankers' political and economic control is obscured. This is why I believe the Rothschilds actually sponsored anti-Semites like Dumont who helped them use the "Dreyfus Affair" to create anti-Semitism and to discredit conservative and nationalist opposition. Nazism, Communism & Zionism are all products of the Illuminati (Sabbatean-Frankist) cult created to advance the satanic NWO agenda.
