In a recent speech at an ADL (Anti-Defamation League) dinner, Rupert Murdoch, arguably the most influential mainstream media chief on Planet Earth, made some extraordinary statements which must be challenged. But first it’s necessary for us all to be clear about what ADL’s role is. Is Rupert Murdoch ignorant or an agent of Zionist deception? Alan Hart, the writer of the book "Zionism: The Real Enemy of the Jews" has written more on the issue as follows: The Anti-Defamation League, ADL's proclaimed objective is to “fight anti-Semitism”. In reality its main purpose under the leadership of Abe Foxman is to smear, harass, silence and preferably destroy those of all faiths and none who are critical of Zionism in action - critical of Israel’s policies in general and its contempt for international law in particular; and critical of the awesome power of the Zionist lobby, in America especially. In his speech Murdoch said his own perspective on the evil of the so-called anti-Semitism was “simple”. He put it this way: “We live in a world where there is an ongoing war against the Jews, (better to say: the Zionists).”
That was Murdoch’s carefully understated way of endorsing Zionism’s assertion that for the first decades of its notorious life Israel lived in danger of annihilation. In the book "Zionism: The Real Enemy of the Jews", the author documented that Israel’s existence was never, ever, in danger from any combination of Arab force. Zionism’s assertion to the contrary was the cover that allowed Israel to get away where it mattered most in America and Western Europe with presenting its aggression as self-defense and itself as the victim when, actually, it was and is the oppressor.
The main event during the period, in which Murdoch asserted that the Arabs were trying to “overrun” the Zionist regime of Israel was the 1967 war. Zionism’s story of it, which the mainstream media still peddles to this day, is that Israel went to war either because the Arabs attacked first or were intending to attack. Both, the either and the or, are Zionist propaganda nonsense. It was a war of Israeli aggression.
No body expects Murdoch to pay any attention to what is documented on the subject, but if he is not an agent of Zionist deception, namely if he is merely ignorant, he ought to consider what various Israeli leaders have said. Here the author quotes them in America Takes Sides, War With Nasser Act II and the Creation of Greater Israel, Chapter 1 of Volume Three in the American edition of his book, which is sub-titled Conflict Without End?
In fact the truth the statement represents was admitted by some of the key Israeli players - after the war, of course. Before we look at what actually happened in 1967 and why, here is a short summary of some pertinent, post-war Israeli confessions. In an interview published in Le Monde on 28 February 1968, Israeli Chief of Staff Yitzhak Rabin said this: “I do not believe that Nasser wanted war. The two divisions which he sent into Sinai on 14 May would not have been enough to unleash an offensive against Israel. He knew it and we knew it.”
On 14 April 1971, a report in the Israeli newspaper Al-Hamishmar contained the following statement by Mordecai Bentov, a member of the wartime national government, who said: "The entire story of the danger of extermination was invented in every detail and exaggerated a posteriori to justify the annexation of new Arab territory." Elsewhere, on 4 April 1972, General Haim Bar-Lev, Rabin’s predecessor as chief of staff, said: “We were not threatened with genocide on the eve of the Six-Days war, and we had never thought of such a possibility.”
In the spring of 1972, General Matetiyahu Peled, Chief of Logistical Command during the war and one of 12 members of Israel’s General Staff, addressed a political literary club in Tel Aviv. He said: “The thesis according to which the danger of genocide hung over us in June 1967, and according to which Israel was fighting for her very physical survival, was nothing but a bluff which was born and bred after the war.” In a radio debate Peled said: “Israel was never in real danger and there was no evidence that Egypt had any intention of attacking Israel.” He added that “Israeli intelligence knew that Egypt was not prepared for war.”
The preference of some generals for truth-telling after the event provoked something of a debate in the occupied lands called Israel, but it was short-lived. If some Israeli journalists had had their way, the generals would have kept their mouths shut. It is not surprising that debate in Israel was shut down before it led to some serious soul-searching about the nature of the state and whether it should continue to live by the lie as well as the sword; but it is more than remarkable, that the mainstream Western media continues to prefer the convenience of the Zionist myth to the reality of what happened in 1967 and why. When reporters and commentators have need today to make reference to the Six Days War, they still tell it like the Zionists said it was in 1967 rather than how it really was. Obviously there are still limits to how far the mainstream media is prepared to go in challenging the Zionist account of history.
In his speech to the ADL dinner, Rupert Murdoch, arguably the most influential mainstream media chief on Planet Earth, said that phase two of the ongoing war against the (so-called) "Jews was "terrorism". He seems to have no idea of reality on this front either. One of a number of summary truths about terrorism is this. In Palestine that became Israel by force, it was the Zionists who turned to terrorism first - to drive out the occupying British and then the indigenous Arabs. A second summary truth about Palestinian terrorism is that the Palestinians were not and are not “at war with the Jews”. Meantime, a summary truth about general Arab and wider Muslim terrorism is that it is primarily a response of the weak and oppressed to Israel’s arrogance of power and insufferable self-righteousness; to the impotence, corruption and repression of Arab and other Muslim regimes which are correctly regarded by their masses as little more than puppets of America-and-Zionism; and to the deadly double-standard of Western foreign policy - in particular its unconditional support for Israel. In at least one respect the Arab and other Muslim masses have much more wisdom than Western leaders. They, Arab and Muslims masses, know that unconditional support for Israel right or wrong is not in anybody’s best interests, not even those of Israel’s Jews.
It is true that in the eyes of many if not most peoples of the world, and probably many of their governments behind closed doors, the Zionist regime is increasingly being seen as a pariah state. But that’s a consequence of Israel’s policies and actions, war crimes and all. If the Zionist state is not called and held to account for its past crimes and is allowed by the major powers to go on committing new ones, this is the real Jews that will be the main losers; a matter that Murdoch likes to name it anti-Semitisim. It is a fact that prior to the obscenity of the Nazi holocaust, most Jews were opposed to Zionism’s colonial enterprise. One of their fears was that Zionism would one day provoke anti-Semitism if it was allowed by the big powers to have its way. It would be a tragic irony if the Jewish state, which was intended to solve the problem of anti-Semitism, was to become a factor in the rise of anti-Semitism. Israelis must be aware that the price of their misconduct is paid not only by them but also the real Jews, who are very far from the Zionist brutal and aggressive objectives, throughout the world.
By the way, if one had the opportunity to address Murdoch directly, he would say to him that if you really care about the Jews, you would put your media empire at the service of the truth of history. It also should be said that the media's mission statement is in one short sentence: "to help keep democracy alive." He would then say to Murdoch that today (generally speaking) the mainstream media has betrayed democracy. And “You, sir, are the greatest betrayer, traitor, of them all.”
