The Zionist Alliance

Zionism is an ideology and a project that mean the Jews outside Israel live in exile and have to return to their eternal homeland Israel, whose establishment was declared by its founder and first prime-minister Ben-Gurion on 14 May 1948. The Zionist plan is to include all the land between the rivers Nile (west), Euphrates (east), and Litany (north) and Sharm Al Sheik (south), which are optimum natural borders as Ben-Gurion thought. Israel borders are supposed to be flexible to allow its expansion as more Jews arrive from all parts of the world to be able to include them. Zionism has advocated that “Palestine is a land without people, and the Jews are people without a land”. Accepting borders less than those has been a temporary tactic to achieve international recognition; and to deceive the involved Arab victims, until Israel’s power increases, its opponents become weaker, and suitable military and political international conditions are developed for the gradual and final expansion to the planed borders.

Zionism has been based on using overwhelming force to suppress the Palestinian Arabs and any allied Arab forces resisting its plans, and allying itself with the colonial powers at different times. Theodor Herzl, the founder of the World Zionist Organization in 1897, wrote in the Jewish State (1886) trying to convince the imperial powers of his time that the Jewish community could serve as: “part of a wall of defense for Europe in Asia, an outpost of civilization against barbarism (Arabs).”

Zionism has always depended on the support of one of the great colonial powers to achieve international legitimacy and military protection. Great Brittan played that role in the 20s and 30s of the past century, then, was replaced by the USA. Zionism provided the British armies with 18,800 Jewish volunteers during the World War II, which led to the establishment of a professional regular Zionist army and British gratitude. Afterwards, Israel, the Zionist state, played the role of the chief American ally in the Middle East, especially after the fall of the American collaborator Mohammad Reza Pahlavi, Shah of Iran on 16 January 1979.

The Palestinians have been murdered, assassinated, imprisoned, tortured, kidnapped, made homeless, economically strangled, and had all their lives destroyed by Israel to abandon the remaining of their land and to be replaced by new Jewish immigrants from all parts of the world. A survey of December 31st, 1922 had shown a Jewish population in Palestine of 83,794 (11%) versus 757,182 Arab Palestinians. Zionism has increased the Jews inhabitants of Palestine 75 times to 6.3 million currently.

Chaim Weizmann, the first Israeli president (1949-1952), compared the Palestinian Arabs to the rocks of Judea, obstacles that had to be cleared to make the path smooth. The optimum way for removing them was their voluntary or forced migration to the neighboring Arab countries. The following wars of 1948 and 1967 have lead to the fulfillment of Weizmann’s vision, as 800,000 Palestinians have been turned into refugees.

Christian Zionism:

It was founded among England’s Protestants based on the Bible written by Cyrus Scofield in 1909. Then, it spread to the USA. The Christian Zionists believe and support the Zionist prophecy that the creation Israel is a realization of an eternal irreversible bond between God and Abraham, according to which the land between the rivers Nile and Euphrates belongs to the Jews eternally. The Jewish Temple will be rebuilt on Al Aqssa Mosque’s current location after destroying it and the eviction of the aboriginal Palestinian population. The use of any means to achieve the Zionist goals is justified. The prophecy will be fulfilled by the return of the Messiah; and then, the final battle of Armageddon will follow during which millions of people, and the satanic forces aligned to Antichrist would be killed. Afterwards, the conversion of the Jews to Christ would take place. Whereas, the Jews believe that all humans will be destroyed except themselves. Any hostility to the state of Israel and its Jewish people equals animosity to God himself; (“I will bless those who bless you and curse those who curse you”). Christian Zionists, therefore, absolutely support the state of Israel disregarding any crimes committed by the Israelis against the native Palestinian inhabitants. This is translated into unlimited political, financial ($3-4 billion a year) and militarily support by the consecutive American governments influenced greatly by Zionism in the USA. Any criticism to Israel and its crimes is considered anti-Semitic.

The number of American Christian Zionists is estimated to be 20-26 millions, which constitutes the strongest support basis for Israel in the USA. They have supported the most radical Zionist leaders such as Menachem Begin, Yitzhak Shamir, Ariel Sharon, and Benjamin Netanyahu, all of which refuse the return of occupied Arab lands, and plan for future expansions Ronald Reagan was a member of that group and received the votes of some 20 million Christian Zionists leading to his success in winning the American presidency twice. He provided unlimited support to Israel during his 8-year rule. As a result, Israel invaded Lebanon in 1982, occupied it for 20 years trying to push its northern borders to the Litany River, and expelled the Palestinian resistance. The expansion has failed as a result of the painful Israeli losses caused by Hezbollah’s resistance fighters.

Balfour Declaration:

David Lloyd George, a former British Prime Minister (1916), and his foreign secretary, Arthur James Balfour, belonged to Christian Zionism and were the first to legitimize the Zionist dream issuing the Balfour Declaration in 1917 giving the world Jews the right to establish a Jewish home land in Palestine disregarding the aboriginal Arab inhabitants. This document was the corner stone for the subsequent Zionist endeavors to materialize the Zionist vision.

The Prophecy’s Realization:

The establishment of the state of Israel was declared on 14 May 1948. All world powers have recognized it. The Arab armies were defeated by the Israelis twice in 1948 and 1967 loosing entire Palestine, the Sinai Desert, and Golan Heights. All these have provided Zionism with the illusion that the prophecy has started to materialize. This inflamed the American political, financial, and militarily support to the Israel.

Now, we are waiting for the fulfillment of the remaining of the prophecy, the appearance of the Messiah and then Armageddon final battle to have all non-Christians or non-Jews completely exterminated. The USA and some of its allies are playing the role of a catalyst trying to stimulate events in the Middle East to bring the world closer and closer to Armageddon. They think that they are playing the illusive game safely as their traditional and nuclear military powers seem to be invincible. They have succeeded in igniting most of the countries that might be involved in the Armageddon war. Afghanistan and Iraq are uncontrollably burning. Palestine and Lebanon are close to such conditions. The World War III seems to be close. Humanity, especially the very stupid one, seems to have never been tired of wars, destruction, pain, and suffer.
