When the British Cabinet issued the Balfour Declaration in 1917, it was over the strenuous objections of its only Jewish member, Edwin Montagu, who represented British Jewry. But non-Jews, many of whom were anti-Semites, who saw Zionism as a way to advance British imperialism and the New World Order. They had the upper hand.
Montagu, who was the Secretary of State for India, told Prime Minister Lloyd George. "All my life I have been trying to get out of the ghetto. You want to force me back there."
With the completion of the "security wall" his vision of a seaside ghetto was prophetic.
An assimilated Jew, Montagu regarded Judaism as a religion only, and viewed Zionism as a "mischievous political creed, untenable by any patriotic citizen of the United Kingdom."
His story helps us to recognize that the New World Order is an elite conspiracy led by specific members of certain Jewish and non-Jewish dynastic families who often intermarried. It is not "Jewish" in terms of the Jewish people as a whole, who historically prefer national assimilation.
In May 1917, a committee representing the leading Jewish organizations published a statement in the London Times saying:
"Emancipated Jews... have no separate political aspirations...the establishment of a Jewish nationality in Palestine founded on [the] theory of a Jewish homelessness, must have the effect of stamping the Jews as strangers in their native lands." (Cousinhood, p.260)
The Balfour Declaration promised Jews a "national home" in Palestine.
Zionist president Chaim Weismann fumed that Jewish opposition was the main obstacle to getting it.
The Jewish community split on the issue. The Samuels and the Rothschilds favored the Balfour Declaration; Cohen, Magnus, Mountefiore and Montagu were against it.
"If it had been merely an issue between Zionist and non-Zionist factions within the community, there is little question that the latter would have won," writes Chaim Bermant in his chronicle of the British Jewish establishment, "The Cousinhood." "But there were the gentile Zionists to consider and they carried the day." (262)
These gentiles included Arthur Balfour, Lord Milner, Lord Lothian (Phillip Kerr) and Lord Robert Cecil. Chaim Weismann recognized that Zionism was part of a larger game: "To [Cecil], the re-establishment of a Jewish Homeland in Palestine and the organization of the world in a great federation were complementary features in the next step in the management of human affairs..." (Reed, Controversy of Zion, p. 249.)
Georgetown University professor Caroll Quigley lists about 100 participants in this world government conspiracy in the Appendix of his book, "The Anglo American Establishment" (1981) They include the above names along with Cecil Rhodes, Lionel Curtis, Wiliam T. Stead, Geoffrey Dawson and Earl Grey. I recognized only three Jews: Nathan Rothschild, Leopold Amery and Alfred Beit. It's hard to say who had the upper hand.
Quigley relates how a group of aristocratic families centered on the Cecils has dominated British politics for centuries. They spawned the secret society organized by Cecil Rhodes and Nathan Rothschild in 1891, in Rhodes' words. a "church for the extension of the British Empire." (34) Known alternatively as "The Round Table" and the "Milner group," its goals included the reunification of England and the US and world domination by the British elite.
The politicians that backed Zionism belonged to this Masonic organization. They were Illuminati or served them. Their world government is dedicated to enthroning Lucifer as God of this world. Zionism and Communism, also Masonic organizations, were their creations and their instruments.
A Hero for Assimilated Jews
Edwin Montagu, the second son of the silver bullion dealer Samuel Montagu, was caught between his father's Orthodox Judaism and desire to be an Englishman. He rejected Judaism but was not about to abandon his Jewish identity. "I will always be a good Jew according to my lights," he wrote his father, "my definition differing from yours."
As a youth he chafed at having to observe the rituals and marry a Jewish girl. As an adult, he embraced the lifestyle of a highborn Englishman. He had a country estate where he was a hunter as well as naturalist and ornithologist. "There was something... alien in the very depth of his affection for England," Bermant writes. (259)
Montagu was a tall nerdy-looking man who wore a monocle and suffered gibes in silence. His "ugliness was obliterated by his charms," wrote his friend Duff Cooper. "He had a huge ungainly body, a deep soft voice and dark eyes that sparkled with kindliness." (253)
At Cambridge Montagu was an able debater and caught the attention of H.H. Asquith, the President of the rival Oxford Union. He followed Asquith into the Liberal party and after the Liberal landslide of 1906 became his private secretary. An eloquent and persuasive speaker, at one time he was thought destined for great things.
Asquith became Prime Minister in 1908. He and Montagu were both infatuated with Venetia Stanley a friend of Asquith's daughter, and 32 years Asquith's younger. Only two years younger than Montagu, she eventually married him when the attentions of the Prime Minister became too much.
Like Montagu's love for England, his love for Venetia was unrequited. She had many affairs and burned through his fortune. But he ignored this and, on the eve of his premature death at age 45, wrote to her, "I am miserable at going. You have made me very happy and I hope you will be happy always." (267)
In 1917, Montagu fought the Balfour Declaration in cabinet and circulated a document accusing the government of anti-Semitism for contemplating a declaration that that makes all British Jews "aliens and foreigners." He said he would "willingly disenfranchise every Zionist [and was tempted to] proscribe the Zionist organization as illegal and against the national interest." Of course he was right.
He was one of those rare Jews who tried to understand the reasons for anti- Semitism instead of blaming "irrational hate."
"I have always recognised the unpopularity...of my community. We have obtained a far greater share of this country's goods and opportunities than we are numerically entitled to. We reach on the whole maturity earlier, and therefore with people of our own age we compete unfairly. Many of us have been exclusive in our friendships and intolerant in our attitude, and I can easily understand that many a non-Jew in England wants to get rid of us.
But just as there is no community of thought and mode of life among Christian Englishmen, so there is not among Jewish Englishmen. More and more we are educated in public schools and at the Universities, and take our part in the politics, in the Army, in the Civil Service, of our country. And I am glad to think that the prejudices against inter-marriage are breaking down. But when the Jew has a national home, surely it follows that the impetus to deprive us of the rights of British citizenship must be enormously increased. Palestine will become the world's Ghetto."
Montagu was probably responsible for inserting the provision in the Balfour Declaration that, despite creating a national homeland, "Nothing shall be done that may prejudice the civil and religious rights of the existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country."
Jews are taught that they are used as scapegoats but they don't learn it is the world government cabal that is using them. It doesn't help that Zionist, Communist, Liberal, Feminist or Neo Con organizations manipulate many Jews, which gives the appearance Jews in general are in fact responsible for the New World Order. Tarred as "cosmopolitans" some advance policies that deprive others of their race, religion, nation and family.
It doesn't help that many Jews ignorantly deny this conspiracy exists and cry "anti-Semitism" every time a banker is criticized. It doesn't help that many Jews have been conned into thinking they need Israel for insurance. As a result, many people think that all Jews are involved in a very real Satanic conspiracy to foment war for profit and "revolution" (which really means NWO.)
Some of the Rothschilds and their Jewish and non-Jewish allies are indeed part of this conspiracy. But most Jews, like people in general, put their countries first, and want no part of world government. Edwin Montagu, a gentle, sincere civilized man, is an example of such a Jew and an inspiration to us all.
