Churchill and the Jews

In 'Churchill and the Jews', by historian Martin Gilbert, it is argued that Winston Churchill was the champion of the Jewish people.

Churchill's mother was Jeanette "Jennie" Jerome.

In an article in The Jerusalem Post, 15 January 1993, Moshe Kohn explained that the Jerome family name was originally Jacobson, and that Jennie was of Jewish descent.

L.G. Pine, the Editor of Burke's Peerage, wrote that Jews "have made themselves so closely connected with the British peerage that the two classes are unlikely to suffer loss which is not mutual. So closely linked are the Jews and the lords that a blow against the Jews in this country would not be possible without injuring the aristocracy also." (Tales of the British Aristocracy 1957, p.219.)

Mountbatten, the uncle of Prince Philip, married the granddaughter of Jewish banker Ernest Cassel. Reportedly, there are very few English aristocrat families left that have not intermarried with Jews. ( - exposing feminism and the new world order)

Reportedly, Jennie Jerome's father, Leonard Jerome, 'was the Jewish owner of the New York Times. He was a close friend of August Belmont, Sr American representative of the Rothschild family's banking.' (

Winston Churchill had many Jewish friends.

According to an article in The Independent ( Churchill and the Jews, by Martin Gilbert - Independent Online ... ), "Churchill benefited from the generosity of rich Jews such as Sir Ernest Cassel and even joked about Sir Philip Sassoon being the restaurant car attached to his train. His sponging induced grotesque fantasies that he was in the pay of 'International Jewry'."

Cassel was alleged to have been involved in a financial scam along with Churchill during the First World war. Allegedly, Churchill was bribed by Cassel to rig the news releases after the Battle of Jutland, so that Cassel could make up $40 million on the New York stock exchange.

Churchill's closest American friend was the Jewish banker Bernard Baruch.

Churchill found 'Jewish money' useful. By 1938 Churchill was in financial difficulty.

According to an article at (Winston Churchill and Josef Stalin: Bosom Pals) : "At this hour of crisis a dark and mysterious figure entered Churchill's life: he was Henry Strakosch, a multi-millionaire Jew who had acquired a fortune speculating in South African mining ventures after his family had migrated to that country from eastern Austria.

"Strakosch stepped forward, advanced the ageing demagogue a 'loan' of £150,000 just in time to save his estate from the auctioneer, and then quietly slipped into the background again.

"In the years that followed, Strakosch served as Churchill's adviser and confidant.."

Another friend of Churchill was Chaim Weizmann, President of the World Zionist Organization and the first President of Israel.

Another Churchill friend was Rufus Isaacs who became (as Lord Reading) both viceroy of India and foreign secretary. Isaacs was suspected of having had a hold over certain politicians and of having used this to advance the cause of Zionism.

1917 was the year of the Balfour Declaration which stated that the British government supported Zionist plans for a Jewish "national home" in Palestine. Prime Minster, David Lloyd George supported the Zionist cause. Lloyd George 'was beholden to Rufus Isaacs, by whom he was implicated in insider trading in Marconi shares.' (aangirfan: Rufus Isaacs, 1st Marquess of Reading, the Marconi ...)

What was Churchill's attitude to Jews and to the setting up of a Jewish state?

In 1905 Churchill opposed the Aliens Bill, which aimed to restrict Jewish refugees from eastern Europe coming into Britain.

In 1910, as home secretary, Churchill signed Weizmann's naturalisation papers.

In 1917 Churchill supported the Balfour Declaration, which favoured a national home for the Jews in Palestine.

In 1920, Churchill wrote about a Jewish state which would be linked to Britain: 'If as may well happen, there should be created in our own lifetime by the banks of the Jordan a Jewish State under the protection of the British Crown, which might comprise three or four millions of Jews, an event would have occurred in the history of the world which would, from every point of view, be beneficial.' (Real History and what Great People thought of the Jews )

Churchill was the colonial secretary (1921-22) who had the job of implementing the Balfour Declaration.

In 1921, in the House of Commons, Churchill spoke in favour of Jewish land purchase in Palestine.

In 1922, Churchill's White Paper stated that the Jews were in Palestine 'of right, and not on sufferance'.

In the 1930s, Churchill opposed proposals to limit Jewish immigration into Palestine.

Churchill resisted the setting up of democratic institutions in Palestine, which would have given the Palestinians a chance to oppose the immigration into Palestine of Jews from Europe, America and elsewhere. Churchill saw the Arabs as a "lower manifestation" of humanity, who would use their huge majority to keep out Jews. (Churchill and the Jews, by Martin Gilbert - Independent Online ...)

During the second world war Churchill suggested appointing the Zionist leader, Dr Chaim Weizmann, as British high commissioner for Palestine.

When Jews used terrorism against the British in Palestine and against the British mainland, Churchill continued to support the Zionist aims. In 1944, the Jewish Stern Gang assassinated Churchill's close friend Lord Moyne. After this murder, Churchill tried to distance himself somewhat from the extremists. ( aangirfan: An attempt to bomb the House of Commons)

Piers Brendon (Churchill and the Jews, by Martin Gilbert - Independent Online ... ) believes that Churchill "saw the Holy Land, a quasi-colony guarding the Suez Canal, as 'an immense advantage to the British Empire'."

Churchill preferred Jews to Arabs. But he apparently believed in conspiracy theories about the Jews.

In 1920, Churchill wrote an article entitled 'Zionism versus Bolshevism' which appeared in the Illustrated Sunday Herald (February 8, 1920). (The

Churchill wrote: ‘This movement among the Jews is not new. From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States), this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilisation and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing.

"It played, as a modern writer, Mrs. Webster, has so ably shown, a definitely recognisable part in the tragedy of the French Revolution.

"It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the Nineteenth Century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their beards and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire."

In 1937 an article under the name of Winston Churchill blamed Jews for their own persecution (Churchill took swipe at Jews in 1937 article - International ... )

Some experts say this 1937 article was never published because Churchill rejected the views of the ghost-writer who composed it.

Some European Christian supporters of the Balfour Declaration wanted the setting up of Jewish homeland so that Jews would leave Europe.

"Many British Zionists, including Balfour... thought Gentile society could not assimilate 'rootless cosmopolitans'." (Churchill and the Jews, by Martin Gilbert - Independent Online ...)
