May 5 Video Interview with Lenni Brenner about Nazi-Zionist collaboration in the 1930's

Over 20,000 sign petition opposed to Labor MP who called Livingstone a "Nazi apologist"

April 29, 2016 Ken Livingstone, the former mayor of London, England has been suspended from the Labour Party, supposedly saying something about "Hitler supporting Zionism".

The comment on Zionism and Hitler was sloppy. But hopefully there's going to be an international examination what actually happened in the '30's, the collaboration of the mainstream Zionist organizations and the Nazis for at least 4 years and especially the betrayal of Jewish interests by Zionist organizations when they broke the anti-Nazi boycott

The issue is joined. Start reading up on it

1. The betrayal by Zionist organizations of the anti-Nazi boycott of the 1930's

2. The long history of betrayal of Jewish interests by prominent Zionists and Zionist organizations.

3. The issue of Zionist-Nazi collaboration was debated before a million people on British TV in 1987. Part 1, Part 2

The Lenni Brenner archive. It's Brenner that Ken Livingstone cites as having taught him about the period

Can Zionist Apologists Explain Away These Images?

April 30. Hitler from the start was a murderous beast and in Mein Kampf in the 1920's talked about gassing Jews. Yet for a number of years the Nazi government in fact encouraged emigration of Jews (while at the same time passing ever more vicious laws against Jews within Germany). German Jewish organizations tried to resist with one exception, Zionist organizations. They decided to cooperate with the Nazis on emigration even though they knew it would sabotage all hopes for resistance. They brought an SS official, Baron Leopold von Mildenstein, to Palestine who stayed there six months, and wrote about his experience positively in the SS magazine Angriff in a year long series of articles and had the above medal struck in honor of the trip.

That medal is real. Please explain it.

This is a picture of Haim Arlosoroff, a top Labour Zionist leader, assassinated in June 1933 weeks after he had bargained a preliminary version of "The Transfer Agreement" with the Nazi German government. In this agreement Zionists would sell German goods in Palestine and the Middle East so that German Jews could leave Germany with more of their capital. The agreement was furiously denounced by Revisionist Zionists because they knew it would doom the anti-Nazi boycott and weaken resistance to Hitler.

Arlosoroff was shot on June 16, 1933. A Revisionist Zionist named Avraham Stavsky was identified by Arlosoroff's wife Sima from some photos and she testified against him at his trial. He was convicted and sentenced to death. (The conviction was later overturned. Evidence had gone missing). According to Lenni Brenner, "In 1944 a ballistics expert discovered the gun that killed Arlosoroff was used in the Cairo assassination by the Stern Gang splitters from Jabotinsky’s organization." (Trace 1933 Murder Weapon to Stern Group Death Squad, Jewish Journal, 10 August 1973.)

You say Livingstone is just talking some antisemitic nonsense. What about the Revisionists (whose descendants have run the Israeli government since the late '70's) who were denouncing the same thing in the early '30's that Livingstone is talking about now?. They were so furious about it that they murdered a fellow Jew because of it.

Please explain.

BTW About That Supposedly Terrible Sentence About "Hitler" and "Legal"

May 1. Interesting that the supposedly outrageous meme where Labour MP Shah included the words, "what Hitler did in German was legal" is actually part of a famous "Birmingham Letter" by Martin Luther King of 1963 where he makes the point that just because something is "legal" it isn't necessarily moral and shouldn't necessarily be obeyed. Here is the quote and link

We should never forget that everything Adolf Hitler did in Germany was "legal" and everything the Hungarian freedom fighters did in Hungary was "illegal." It was "illegal" to aid and comfort a Jew in Hitler's Germany. Even so, I am sure that, had I lived in Germany at the time, I would have aided and comforted my Jewish brothers. If today I lived in a Communist country where certain principles dear to the Christian faith are suppressed, I would openly advocate disobeying that country's antireligious laws.

The interviewer of Ken Livingstone brings up the "Hitler" "legal" business as supposedly an anti-Semitic statement being totally ignorant of its origin and intent. Livingstone then gives an imprecise answer about Hitler supporting Zionism and we're off to the races.

"Supporting Zionism"

The beast Hitler, or course, never had any desire to help Jews in any fashion. However, the Transfer Agreement negotiated by the Zionists with the Nazi German government did in fact support the Zionist project in Palestine. Read the glowing account of it by Edwin Black a very enthusiastic Zionist in his book "The Transfer Agreement". The Epilogue of the 2009 reprint (endorsed by Abraham Foxman of the ADL, no less) tells how the agreement led to an "economic explosion" in Palestine. He says "Palestine's economic absorbtiveness tripled, perhaps quadrupled..." He ends the book talking about the men who in 1933 decided to make the agreement. He writes, "These men were the creators of Israel. And in order to do so, each had to touch his hand to the ost controversial undertanking in Jewish history - the Transfer Agreement. It paved the way for a state". Here's a link to Edwin Black's website. Read his description of "The Transfer Agreement".

The Zionists and Hitler despised each other, but both thought they were brilliantly using each other. There's no doubt the agreement did help the Zionist project in Palestine in monetary ways, but at a collosal cost, sabotaging and destroying a major effort to defeat Hitler in the 1930's.
