Nothing is as ahistorical and unconvincing as the statement that God gave Palestine to the Jews. This statement is a crude fabrication of the scriptures by the Nazis and Zionists to proffer a justification for the colonisation and occupation of Palestine. There is no God who can dispossess a people of their country and give it to other people.
The recent bombing of the Palestinian people out of their homes is an orchestrated plan carried out by Zionists and it is occurring for the second time in sixty years. It happened the last time in the late 1940’s. The Plan to establish a Zionist state in Israel gained impetus during the tenure of office of former British Prime Minister Benjamin Disraeli in 1877 and was put into motion at the Zionist Congress held in Basel, Switzerland on 29 August 1897 called by Theodor Herzl and funded by the Rothschild family.
In How Britain’s Biggest Racists Created Zionism, Mark Burdman wrote:
“There is one man who can properly be regarded as the father of Zionism and Nazism: Benjamin Disraeli. To omit Disraeli from a central place in the 19th century development of Zionism, as agent historian Barbara Tuchman once said, “would be as absurd as to leave the ghost out of Hamlet.” As Prime Minister under Victoria in the 1870s, Disraeli was the overseer of Britain’s imperial design to secure a “homeland” for Jews as a British outpost in the Middle East, and a secret document authored by Disraeli became the manifesto for early Zionism in Europe. That much is admitted on the public record”.
In 1877, the British Prime Minister wrote a blueprint for a Zionist state in Palestine under British rule; the man who is officially known as the “spiritual father of the country” in Israel today is Theodore Herzl. Herzl, the prophet of political Zionism, went by the code-name “Tancred”; he ably personified the race-cult ideas of Disraeli and the Anglican “Jewish restorationists” of 19th century England.
Herzl was bred in Vienna, the intellectual swamp of the decomposing Hapsburg Empire. There the British intelligence service and allied House of Austria also recruited Adolf Hitler, for the Nazi variety of anti-Semitism. Like Hitler, Herzl was an extreme neurotic, a Bohemian playwright, who hated Jews. Laughed at, derided, denounced, and assured that he was insane by almost all Jews he came in contact with, Theodore Herzl was embraced by the racialist myth-makers of the British Empire, becoming a principal agent for their policy: a drive to “purify” the Aryan and Semitic “races” alike by ridding Europe of “the Jew.” The document was published anonymously and put into circulation in Vienna.

Herzl was Disraeli’s protégé’. In his Complete Diaries, Herzl clearly spells out the modus operandi of the Zionists, one of which was to drive all Arabs out of Palestine by means of violence. But overtly the Zionists did not reveal their true intentions. The intentions of the Israeli government are clear; to drive out as many Palestinians as possible and usurp their land. Hamas is used as a pretext to realize the objectives of Zionism. Zionism, like Apartheid, is a racist ideology.
Hamas is portrayed as an anti-Semitic organization and by extension the ANC as one writer pointed out in The Business Day of 14 July 2014 because it is perceived to be supporting Hamas. Who or what is an anti-Semite? African-American scholar, Dr Charles Finch wrote that the word “Semitic” itself has varied connotations depending on the point to be proved or world-view to be reinforced. Thus, depending on who’s using it, the term can denote a race, an ethnic group, or a language, or some combination thereof. The Palestinians are also classified as Semites. So are they against themselves? The Israelis are perceived as being against the Palestinians. They are therefore also anti-Semitic.
The ANC government, unlike the tjoep stil Democratic Alliance, should be commended for having spoken out against the atrocities perpetrated by the Israeli government against the Palestinians although this is too little too late. It should have recalled its ambassador from Tel Aviv and expelled Israel’s envoy from this country. In fact, the ANC government should not have established diplomatic relations with Israel in the first place from the advent of the “new” government because Israel propped up the Apartheid government militarily and helped it with its nuclear weapons programme. There are well documented reports that the Apartheid government’s twenty-four nuclear warheads were transported to Israel before “democratic” elections. Israel also helped the Apartheid government bust sanctions.
The ANC government, like almost all governments on the African continent, is a client state of the US and/or France. Consequently, it won’t sever diplomatic relations with Israel because Israel is the US’s spoiled brat and South Africa is kowtowing to the US. Israel, like the Apartheid government, is a settler colonialist state and was established in 1948 by Europeans. The ANC government’s position should be that, based on historical records, Israel is an occupying force in Palestine and a colonial outpost for western imperialism in the Middle East. It is the aggressor and should therefore cease hostilities unconditionally.
