Like all U.S. presidents inevitably come to realize, during the ‘Suez Crisis’ of 1957 when Israel — aided and abetted by England and France –invaded Egypt, Dwight Eisenhower learned the hard way that it was Jewish power in the U.S. that dictated foreign policy in the Middle East, not “principles” or even his own State Department:
Former President Eisenhower has revealed in his new book, “The White House Years: Waging Peace 1956-1961,” that, in order to pressure Israel into withdrawal from the Sinai in 1957, he preferred “a resolution which would call on all United Nations members to suspend not just governmental but private assistance to Israel.”
Mr. Eisenhower said “such a move would be no hollow gesture. As we discussed it, George Humphrey, then Secretary of the Treasury, put in a call to W. Randolph Burgess, Under Secretary of the Treasury for monetary affairs, who gave a rough estimate that American private gifts to Israel were about $40, 000, 000 a year and sales of Israel bonds in our country between $50, 000, 000 and $60, 000, 000 a year. His information was in part based on Treasury figures on income tax deductions.”
Mr. Eisenhower revealed that Secretary of State John Foster Dulles “strongly expressed the view that we had gone as far as possible to try to make it easy for the Israelis to withdraw. To go further, he said, would surely Jeopardize the entire Western influence in the Middle East, and the nations of that region would conclude that United States policy toward the area was, in the last analysis, controlled by Jewish influence in the United States. In such event, the only hope of the Arab countries would be found in a firm association with the Soviet Union.”
A charge was made by the former President that Congressional leaders who met with him on the Israeli withdrawal issue were motivated by “politics.” He recalled that both Lyndon B. Johnson, then Senate Majority Leader, and William F. Knowland, then Minority leader, argued that, in “cracking down” on Israel we are using a double standard–following one policy for the strong and one for the weak.” They contrasted the Administration’s pressure on Israel with its failure to act strongly on Hungary.
(When President Eisenhower communicated his plan for sanctions against Israel to Senate leaders, the then Sen. Johnson called on Mr. Eisehower and bluntly informed him that the Senate would not approve economic sanctions against Israel. The outspoken Texan told the Eisenhower Administration that threats to impose sanctions on Israel were unwise and unfair, and that he was against “pressure on one side in a two-sided dispute.” Deploring the attempted “coercion” of Israel as a “method of settlement,” Mr. Johnson told the Eisenhower Administration it had lost sight of the basic facts in the Israel-Arab dispute.)
A White House staff member termed the meeting with the Congressional leaders “a can of worms,” Mr. Eisenhower said. He “reflected on the pettiness” of those reluctant to sanction Israel. He found it “somewhat disheartening that partisan considerations could enter.” The “question of principle,” in Mr. Eisenhower’s thinking was: “Should a nation which attacks and occupies foreign territory in the face of United Nations disapproval be allowed to impose conditions on its own withdrawal?”
Six years later — in Dallas in November 1963 — Lyndon Johnson saw first-hand just how “unwise” it was for a sitting U.S. president to attempt to impose sanctions on Israel — after John F. Kennedy strictly forbade Israel from acquiring nuclear weapons.
But LBJ owed his entire political career to being a bagman for American Jewry — first helping illegally smuggle eastern European Jews into America through the port of Galveston, Texas, when he worked as legislative assistant of Congressman Richard M. Kleberg, a wealthy Jewish merchant and landowner.
Like Johnson, Eisenhower had also made his career under the tutelage of the powerful Bernard Baruch — and ensured his presidential aspirations by imposing “peace” terms on Germany pleasing to international Jewry which had orchestrated the war from its beginnings.
That same year — 1957 — Eisenhower, clearly at the behest of his Jewish backers — asked the U.S. Congress to change U.S. immigration policy to allow the U.S. to be flooded by Jewish ‘refugees” intent on escaping communism in Eastern Europe — after creating it themselves.
But even after a lifetime doing the unprincipled bidding of Jewry, Eisenhower found out in just how quickly they would cut him off at the knees if he dared cross them — his “questions of principle” be damned.
Some relevant quotes:
I’ve never seen a President — I don’t care who he is — stand up to the Jews. They always get what they want. If the American people understood what a grip these people have got on our government, they would rise up in arms.
—Admiral Thomas Moorer, Chairman, U.S.. Joint Chiefs of Staff, 1970-74
Above all, propaganda here [in the U.S.A.] is entirely in Jewish hands. When bearing public ignorance in mind, their propaganda is so effective that people have no real knowledge of the true state of affairs in Europe. President Roosevelt has been given the power to create huge reserves in armaments for a future war which the Jews are deliberately heading for.
—Count Jerzy Potocki, Polish Ambassador to the U.S.A., 1934
I believe now that Hitler and the German people did not want war. But we declared war on Germany, intent on destroying it, in accordance with our principle of balance of power, and we were encouraged by the Jews around Roosevelt. We ignored Hitler’s pleadings not to enter into war. Now we are forced to realize that Hitler was right.
—Sir Harley Shawcross, British Attorney General, Senior Nuremberg Prosecutor, March 16, 1984
While the Zionists try to make the rest of the World believe that the national consciousness of the Jew finds its satisfaction in the creation of a Palestinian state, the Jews again slyly dupe the dumb Goyim. It doesn’t even enter their heads to build up a Jewish state in Palestine for the purpose of living there; all they want is a central organization for their international world swindler, endowed with its own sovereign rights and removed from the intervention of other states: a haven for convicted scoundrels and a university for budding crooks.
—Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf
“How does it feel, in the light of all that’s going on , to be the father of terrorism in the Middle East?”
“In the Middle East?” Begin bellowed, in his thick cartoon accent, “In all the world!”
–Menachem Begin to Russell Warren Howe, interview Jan. 1974
The Jews have no sense of proportion nor do they have any judgment on world affairs….The Jews, I find, are very, very selfish. They care not how many Estonians, Latvians, Finns, Poles, Yugoslavs or Greeks get murdered or mistreated as D[isplaced] P[erson]s as long as the Jews get special treatment. Yet when they have power, physical, financial or political neither Hitler nor Stalin has anything on them for cruelty or mistreatment to the under dog.
