Secret War Against the Jews: How Western Espionage Betrayed The Jewish People

Overview

A hugely controversial work that exposes a series of scandals from Oliver North to the British royal family, The Secret War Against the Jews reveals as much about political corruption inside Western intelligence as it does about Israel. Using thousands of previously top-secret documents and interviews with hundreds of current and former spies, Loftus and Aarons, both veteran investigators, Nazi-hunters, and authors, present a compelling narrative.

Overview

A hugely controversial work that exposes a series of scandals from Oliver North to the British royal family, The Secret War Against the Jews reveals as much about political corruption inside Western intelligence as it does about Israel. Using thousands of previously top-secret documents and interviews with hundreds of current and former spies, Loftus and Aarons, both veteran investigators, Nazi-hunters, and authors, present a compelling narrative.

The authors demonstrate that numerous Western countries, especially the United States and Great Britain, have conducted repeated and willful spying missions on Palestine and later Israel over many decades. While on the surface these two countries and others profess to be ardent allies of Israel, they work, in fact, through their intelligence services to betray Israel's secrets to the Arabs. Their motive: oil and multinational profits, which must be attained at any price through international covert policies.

The pageant of characters appearing in this narrative is vast and shocking. This is not only a compelling work of history, but also a volume whose grave allegations will be debated for years to come.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Europe, abetted by the United States and other nations, continues the ancient war against Jews in ways which are vividly narrated in this extraordinary book. This is the sort of story which must be brought into open view if ever we are to be wise enough to end the reflex hostility between Gentile, Arab, and Jew."-- Thomas Keneally, author of Schindler's List

"The Secret War Against the Jews...reads like a great spy novel."-- Sandee Brawarsky, Jewish Week

    Useful account of the pro-Nazi crimes of the US and British ruling classes

    This excellent book exposes the anti-democratic nature of the British and US ruling classes. It shows how for most of the last century they committed huge crimes in the name of anti-communism, doing far more evil deeds than their class enemies. In the 1930s, they collaborated with the Nazis, building up their war machine so that Hitler could attack their enemy, the Soviet Union. The authors write, ¿It is an irony that in 1939, the only national leader willing to admit Jews was that great anti-Semite Joseph Stalin.¿ Perhaps he was not so anti-Semitic then? And whose armies liberated Eastern Europe from Nazism? Whose armies stopped the Nazis¿ death camps from operating? After the Second World War, MI6 funded the Vatican¿s Nazi-smuggling operation from 1945 to 1947. The US State Department took over the job in 1947. Since then, ¿every major White Russian war criminal had been on one NATO payroll or another. Even the few German administrators from the SS had been hired. They were, so it seemed, good anti-Communists.¿ ¿almost the entire Nazi puppet government of White Russia, which included large portions of Ukraine and Russia, had been smuggled in and given American citizenship.¿ ¿Israeli intelligence had known about the White Russian Nazis for years and kept silent.¿ The Nazi-hunter Simon Wiesenthal worked for US intelligence. ¿In over thirty years he had never criticized American intelligence for hiring Nazis. During the same thirty years, Soviet propaganda had frequently denounced Wiesenthal as an agent of Western intelligence, accusing him of hunting only those Nazis who were not on NATO¿s payroll.¿ So the Soviet propaganda was telling the truth the Western agencies who denounced the Soviets for lying were the real liars. The crimes continued into the 1980s. Thatcher sent aid, including arms, to Nicaragua¿s terrorists, the Contras. The Thatcher and Reagan governments secretly ran arms to Iran in 1984. The authors conclude, ¿For the really dirty tricks, heavy-duty arms deals, and outrageously illegal covert operations, the Americans turn to Britain, not to Israel. The British government has the most repressive combination of libel laws, press censorship, and criminal sanctions against disclosing intelligence operations of any country in the democratic world. It knows how to keep a secret from its own press, public, and Parliament. More important, it knows how to shift the blame to others when an operation is exposed.¿

    Excellent Work

    I have this book interesting and consider it a valuable resource to utilize. It analyzes a topic not often considered in discussions regarding the Israeli-Arab conflict and the fate of Israel.

    Complete and Utter Nonsense

    Loftus and Aarons Book is a collection of crude and bizarre conspiracy theories. The underlying theme is that Western governments and their maverick intelligence services just pretend to be allied with Israel and support Israel's right to existence. In reality, they work actively for the destruction of the Jewish State. Some of the chapters of the book like the ones on the Liberty Incident and the 1973 Arab-Israeli War are actually quite entertaining because of the the authors' absurd efforts to design conspiracies against the Israelis and Jewish people in general. While it is obvious that most of the stories are actually made up this monograph is still a nuisance. What especially angers me as an historian is the authors' attempt to present this nonsense as a scholarly piece of work. Over one hundred pages of footnotes can be found at the end of the book. Every time the authors claim something unbelievable or spectacular (and this happens every two pages) you can find in the related footnote some reference to anonymous sources inside the intelligence world. Only from time to time they offer some documentary evidence and if so, they avoid giving the exact location of their source. Several times they quote a document and then give a reference to 'National Archives, College park, Maryland, document in the authors' possession' without any further information. No Record Group or anything else is given which could help the reader to check the sources. This book is just another example of people who try to make some money out of the suffering of other people. It is also an offense to any kind of serious scholarship. It's frustrating that nonsense like this is all to common in the area of the history of the Middle East.
