Establishing Israel: some inconvenient facts
One of the great joys of blogging is to take a hand shandyist for war and really go to town on him. My favourite is Gene from Harry's Place who has just posted yet another rant on the alleged links between the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and the Nazis. The wheeze is to equate Arab determination to remove a certain shitty little country that was established in Arabia in 1948 with anti-Semitism. It's a bit like describing the African countries that opposed Southern Rhodesia as anti-British. Actually, this writer suspects that the average Arab doesn't really give much of a stuff for the average Jew, provided he isn't living in that part of Arabia called Palestine. Anyway, once the rest have either been relocated back to Europe, or reconciled themselves to living in Palestine, Arab rants will probably cease. Just like African rants did, come to think of it.

Getting back to our mate Gene, the problem with his argument - if we may thus dignify it - is that the Grand Mufti's flirtation with Germany did not have all that much of an effect on the war effort. The problem that Gene has is that the Europeans who were colonising Palestine did side with Germany and their actions certainly had a detrimental effect on the war effort.

In 1941, one of the terrorist gangs that fought to create Israel, the National Military Organisation (Irgun or Stern gang as it is more usually called) made the following official offer to the German government:
1. Common interests could exist between the establishment of a new order in Europe in conformity with the German concept, and the true national aspirations of the Jewish people as they are embodied by the NMO.
2. Cooperation between the new Germany and a renewed folkish-national Hebraium would be possible and,
3. The establishment of the historic Jewish state on a national and totalitarian basis, bound by a treaty with the German Reich, would be in the interest of a maintained and strengthened future German position of power in the Near East.

Proceeding from these considerations, the NMO in Palestine, under the condition the above-mentioned national aspirations of the Israeli freedom movement are recognized on the side of the German Reich, offers to actively take part in the war on Germany’s side.
Although Germany never took up the offer, that didn't stop these crusaders from starting their terrorist campaign against the British in Palestine in 1944. That's right folks! The war against Germany did not end until May of 1945, so these gallant boys were ipso facto allies of Germany for almost a year. Their activities included the usual bank robberies, extorsion and the killing of British soldiers and officials. How many troops were diverted from the European Theatre to hold the line in Palestine is a matter of some debate, but the point is that troops had to be kept in that territory.

So what does all this prove? Well, it proves that politics makes strange bedfellows, it proves that people who live in glass houses should not throw stones, and it proves that Gene from Harry's Place is a complete knob. However, we knew that last bit was true all along, didn't we?

The truth is merely a tool to these people (i.e. all imperialists), as are lies -- same as what they accuse everyone else of. They also expect to lie all the time -- so when they actually get to tell the truth to get their way every now and then, why, they downright chortle with glee.

Fact is, all sorts of national minorities and liberation outfits schemed with the Nazis at the time, solely on the basis that the Nazis were the enemy of their various imperialist overlords. That's all. Same as all these anti-communist nationalist traitors of the working-class today have been more than willing to make a pact with the capitalist Devil in order to cut their own selfish selves a special deal at the expense of everyone else.

Fact is, the Nazis were only a nose in the lead past the post when it comes to Evil. The Western imperialists actually place a very close second. Or maybe they win a foto-finish.
The stalinists only show.
