Birth of a (Fascist) Nation (I)

By Garcia Wilde, Miami, 9 April 2024

When the legality of Israel’s existence is questioned, Zionists say it was the United Nations which voted for the partition of Palestine between Arabs and Jews thus ushering the birth of Israel. Putting aside the fact that the UN had no right to split Palestine and that Palestinians were, according to the UN itself, 65 percent of the population and remained in possession of approximately 85 percent of the land, the UN gave 54 percent of Palestine to the newly-arrived Jews, let’s look how the U.S, the hand maiden of the Zionists, manipulated the UN vote.

The Zionist lobby was successful because it had the United States in its pocket. The two main weapons of the lobby in the U.S were the Jewish vote in certain strategic states and Jewish donations to both political parties. There were other Zionist facilities too, such as Hollywood, the media, the Broadway, ignorant Christian Zionists, and the American  ignorance of Palestinians. The U.S. became the enabler which accumulated UN “Yes” votes for partition through intimidation and bribery. The UN General Assembly voted (Nov. 29, 1947) 33 “Yes,” 13 “No,” 10 abstentions, and one absentee.

Most of what follows are from historian Alfred M. Lilienthal’s the other side of the coin and The Zionist Connection. Combined, the two books have 1,292 pages and 120 pages of bibliography. Lilienthal (1915-2008) was a Jewish author, attorney, and lifelong anti-Zionist politician who served in the U.S armed forces. The two books were published in 1965 and 1978.

From The other side of the coin (page 96): “…the United States, its President, the Congress and people highly connected in the Administration had brought every conceivable kind of pressure to bear on small nations which were hesitating to support the U.S. position; although twenty-six pro-Zionist U.S. Senators, not unmindful of the “Jewish vote” had drafted a telegram to thirteen of the undecided U.N. delegations which caused five of these to change their votes YES and seven others to change their votes from Nay to abstention…”

It’s worth noting that during the partition of Palestine, the UN was a western club with the United States playing big man on the campus.

Quoting (page 98) Zionist Leon Uris (author of the notorious Exodus novel), Lilienthal points out what Uris had written about how the French “Yes” was acquired: “An abstention by France could prove disastrous. Had Blum [Leon Blum, Prime Minister of France] and the French succeeded? French Ambassador Parodi said: ‘The Republic of France votes for partition.’ In the recital there was no reference to the long talk that had taken place between White House adviser Bernard Baruch and Ambassador Parodi of France. The French needed little reminder of the importance of interim Marshall Plan aid to their future plans.”

General Carlos Romulo, the representative of Philippines was against the partition of Palestine. He said: “The primordial rights of the people to determine their political future and to preserve the territorial integrity of their native land.” However, Ambassador Joaquin Elizalde informed his president by phone that Washington was determined on partition and that it would be foolish for the Philippines to vote against a policy so ardently desired by the U.S. Administration at a time when seven bills were pending in the U.S. Congress in which Philippines had a tremendous stake. Romulo was recalled and Elizalde voted in favor of partition.

The year before [1946] President Harry S. Truman was planning to make a statement urging Britain to allow 100,000 Jews into Palestine. Britain asked Truman to withhold the statement. The President refused because “It was believed that Mead and Lehman, the Democratic candidates for Governor and Senator in New York, would be helped by the Truman declaration.”

The Zionist Connection, page 62: “Both the Truman Memoirs and the Margaret Truman biography of her father are very clear and unambiguous in detailing the pressures that forced the U.S. to whip other U.N. members into line to assure passage of the partition resolution. In his own memoirs, the man from Independence is the number-one witness to the tremendous Zionist coercion.”

Page 65: “Other important Americans “talked” to countries such as Haiti, Ethiopia, the Philippines, Paraguay, and Luxembourg, all dependent on the U.S. [leading Washington columnist] Drew Pearson, an old friend of the Zionists, in his “Merry-Go-Round” column mentioned how Adolph Berle, legal adviser to the Haitian government, “talked” on the phone to Haiti’s President, and how Harvey Firestone, owner of vast rubber plantations in Liberia, “talked” with that government…to bring pressure on the Liberian Government to vote in favor of partition…”

Page 66. Bribes as well as threats had been used by America and the Zionists. One Latin American delegate had changed his vote to support partition in return for $75,000 in cash and another, a Costa Rican, declined a $45,000 bribe…

Page 68 The affirmative vote of Haiti, whose representative only twenty-four hours  earlier had been fiercely attacking the proposal during the Lake Success debate, was one of the three last-minute shifts (the Philippines and Liberia were the other two) to bring about partition approval.

The Zionist members of the prestigious American Historical Association (Barbara Tuchman, Eugene Rostow, and Howard Sachar) were on hand to use their clout and contacts for a pro-partition outcome.

There were reports that David Rockefeller, who had huge investments in Latin America, telephoned the leaders of a number of Latin leaders and made it clear to them that America expects them to vote “Yes” to partition. Finally and meretriciously, some diplomats at the UN were blackmailed: if they didn’t vote “Yes,” their peccadillos would be reported to their wives and home countries.

In A Prime Minister Remembers (1961) post-war British Prime Minister Clement Attlee wrote the following about the partition of Palestine: “The U.S. policy in Palestine was molded by the Jewish vote and by party contributions of several big Jewish firms.”

The litany of underhanded stunts, lies and bribes deployed by the U.S. mentioned above is by no means exhaustive. American policy made it possible for the UN to split Palestine against the will of the majority Palestinian population and thus to give birth to fascist-apartheid Israel. Since then, America has been the number-one champion of Israel. Whatever their ideology or background, all twelve American Presidents who followed Truman have remained steadfastly pro-Israel. Will American policy regarding the conflict between Palestinians and the settler colony become fair? That’s the $64 billion and soaring question.

  1. Mr Garcia,

    Globally, not many were aware then, nor are they aware now, the length to which the US Administration under President Truman has gone not just to support the Zionist goal but partition of Palestine. Successor administrations continue the policy.
    Yours is a must read article by all.
    Thank you for the tremendous research you have done to shed light on how the Zionists succeeded in the partition of Palestine and how the “Palestinian refugee crisis”, camps and all started and spread in the Gaza Strip, on the East and West Bank of Jordan, Egypt, Lebanon, and everywhere.
