The Daily Mail and its proprietor, Lord Rothermere, were strong supporters of Hitler before 1939. In Nazi Youth in Control [Daily News 4.9.33] Rothermere wrote that
‘I WRITE from a new country on the map of Europe. Its name is Naziland. Of all the historic changes in our time, the transformation of Germany under Hitler has been the swiftest, most complete,’ which is certainly one way of putting it.
|The Mail also supported Oswald Moseley’s British Union of Fascists – who were of course anti-Semitic|
Rothermere waxed lyrical about the attractions and support of German people for Hitler.
‘Something far more significant than a new Government has arisen among the Germans. There has been a sudden expansion of their national spirit like that which took place in England under Queen Elizabeth. Youth has taken command. On a visit, which I am paying to Northern Germany I find-, the signs of the new Hitler spirit as manifest in the most out of-the-way villages as in the largest cities.’
He didn’t hesitate to whitewash Nazi violence.
‘They have started a clamorous campaign of denunciation against what they call ‘Nazi atrocities,’ which, as anyone who visits Germany quickly discovers for him self, consists merely of a few isolated acts of violence.’
|Rothermere also owned the Daily Mirror and it too was pro-fascist – something not widely known today|
‘The administration of a few doses of castor oil to Communist adversaries.’ Perhaps in his visit he could have taken in the concentration camps of Dachau and Sachsenhausen.
Rothermere also justified the Nazis’ anti-Semitism:
JEWISH OFFICIALS IN KEY POSITIONS‘THE German nation, moreover, was rapidly falling under the control of its alien elements. In the last days of the pre-Hitler regime there were 20 times as many Jewish Government officials in Germany as had existed before the war. Israelites of international attachments were insinuating themselves into key positions in the German administrative machine. Three German Ministries only had direct relations with the Press, but in each case the official responsible for conveying news and interpreting policy to the public was a Jew. . It is from such abuses that Hitler has freed Germany.’
To Rothermere Hitler’s actions were to prevent Jewish ‘abuses’. Rothermere was quite prepared to justify anti-Semitism as the price of smashing communism and the labour movement. In this he was not alone. In his two-volume book on fascism, Robert Black quotes Lloyd George thus:
‘If the powers that be succeeded in overthrowing Nazism in Germany, what would follow? Not a Conservative-Socialist regime (SPD) nor a Liberal regime, but extreme Communism… A Communist Germany would be intimately more formidable than a Communist Russia.’ [Robert Black, p. 417, Fascism in Germany, pp. 296/297, Steyne Publications, 1975.
Nor was this attitude to anti-Semitism confined to non-Jews. Chaim Weizmann, President of the (World) Zionist Organisation and first President of the State of Israel wrote of Major Evans-Gordon MP, founder of the anti-Semitic British Brothers League, which campaigned against the admission of Jewish refugees from Czarist Russia that:
‘“Looking back now, I think our people were rather hard on him.” And why? Because:
The Aliens Bill in England and the movement which grew up around it were natural phenomenon which might have been foreseen.’ To the Zionists anti-Semitism was a ‘natural phenomenon’ which could not be fought and this of course explains the collaboration with anti-Semitism including the Nazis (especially in the 1933-1939 period).
I have run a number of articles exposing the CAA as a Zionist political organisation masquerading as a charity:
EXCLUSIVE – Lifting the Lid on the Campaign Against Anti-Semitism
The Campaign Against Anti-Semitism Smears Veteran Israeli Anti-Zionist Professor Moshe Machover and
More False Allegations of Anti-Semitism – their purpose is to shore up position of Progress MP Peter Kyle
|Nasty smear article on CAA web site attacks Becky Massey, the Chair of a Labour ward in Hove, on the basis of two tweets which never mention Jews|
3 weeks ago in response to their attacks on Becky Massey, a friend of mine in Hove Labour Party and Professor Moshe Machover, an Israeli anti-Zionist, I started a petition on Change.org calling on the Charity Commission to remove their charity status. They immediately contacted change.org and tried to get them to take down the petition.
The CAA have great difficulty in understanding the meaning of free speech. Like their beloved Israeli state, their answer to their opponents criticism is to use administrative means to shut them down. In Israel this is achieved by the bullet and the prison cell, in Britain it has to be a bit subtler. However change.org refused to take the petition down because it was clear that here was a valid issue of concern to people. See:
Campaign Against Anti-Semitism tries to intimidate Change.org to remove Petition criticising them
|The CAA were so eager to engage in politically lynching Jackie Walker that they accused her of holocaust denial|
Ludicrously, in their racist attacks on the Black-Jewish anti-Zionist activist Jackie Walker, they accused her of justifying the Holocaust and excusing Hitler. Why? Because she quoted the first Prime Minister of Israel, David Ben Gurion, who said that the Arabs justifiably asked why they were being made to pay the price for the Nazis and Auschwitz when they bore no blame. The idiots at the CAA took one look at the quote, saw Nazi and Auschwitz and Jackie Walker and immediately invented a grossly libellous charge against her. It was subsequently deleted but not before I and others got a screen print.
|Racist CAA cartoon of a Muslim man|
The CAA are an overtly Islamaphobic political group. They have skewed opinion polls to show that Muslims are anti-Semitic, they have inflated the level of anti-Semitism in society overall to suggest nearly half of British people are anti-semitic with the intention of increasing fears in the Jewish community.
At the same time they have posted grossly racist cartoons of Muslims. When people protested they put the image above into silhouette, but its racism was clear in the headings.
|The Mail think this is less racist than the above figure|
The CAA have therefore resorted to that time and trusted weapon, the Daily ‘Hate’ Mail. No doubt tomorrow there will appear the usual smear article suggesting how us wicked ‘anti-Semites’ are trying to stop these doughy fighters against ‘anti-Semitism’:
I received a message a short
time ago from Rory Tingle from the Daily Mail on-line. My responses are below. Clearly the fCampaign Against Anti-Semitism, are
running scared that their charity status is under threat. Their political activities are so blatant that they have been forced to tell ever more desperate lies. Gideon Falter, CAA’s Chair, claims that
‘This petition is an attempt to stop Jews from calling out anti-Semitism by smearing them as Israeli agents trying to stifle dissent against their supposed power.
|The CAA has over 70 articles attacking Jeremy Corbyn|
One wonders whether Mr Falter’s nose has grown a few feet after telling this egregious lie. Nothing CAA does is directed at people who hate Jews as Jews. Their sole concern is smearing people like Jeremy Corbyn, Baroness Tonge, Gerald Kaufman, Shami Chakrabarti, Jackie Walker and even Israeli Anti-Zionist Professor Moshe Machover. The wonder is they have left me alone for so long but maybe attacking the son of an Orthodox Jewish Rabbi is a step too far! Or maybe not.
Anti-racist Jews are an especial target for this group of political gangsters. Like the Jewish Labour Movement, Labour Friends of Israel and a host of similar groups, we suspect that they are funded, in part at any rate, by the Israeli state through the $50m slush fund allocated to Gilad Erdan’s Ministry of Strategic Affairs.
should do your utmost to share this petition as widely as possible. Let’s keep the heat on these unscrupulous and
dishonest people who dare to conflate hatred against Jewish people and anti-Semitism with
opposition to Israel’s Apartheid regime, a regime which only 4 weeks ago demolished a Bedouin village, Umm al-Hiran in Israel’s Negev desert, murdering a school teacher, in order to erect a Jewish only village of Hiran.
which in the 1930’s campaigned against the entrance of Jewish refugees from Nazi Germany
to be extremely sympathetic to these Zionist defamers.

fact that in Hungary the Zionist Rescue & Relief Committee and the Judenrat
(Jewish Council) rounded up Jews for deportation. Indeed not just in
Hungary. If you weren’t so ignorant you wouldn’t be so shocked. Who
do you think rounded up the Jews of the Warsaw Ghetto? The late Israel
Shahak, a note Israeli human rights campaigner and professor at the Hebrew
University, Jerusalem was a child survivor of the Warsaw Ghetto and Belsen.
He said how even at the height of the roundups the Nazis were rarely seen. It
was the Jewish police who did the rounding up.
anything about what actually happened in Warsaw you would know that the Jewish
resistance first executed Jewish collaborators, who were almost always
Zionists, as a precondition of the Jewish Resistance succeeding.
want to know about Hungary then read Ben Hecht’s book Perfidy (its easy to
google). It was the subject of a 4 year trial in Israel which led to the
overthrow of the Sharrett government. Yes everywhere in Europe the

petition is not aimed at preventing Jews calling out

the real anti-Semites of the National Front and BNP in Brighton for many
years. What the petition is aimed at doing is stopping Mr Falter and co.
from accusing supporters of the Palestinians and anti-Zionists of

people will ignore you.
that the Daily Mail, which in the 1930s supported Hitler, along with the
Express and The Times under Geoffrey Dawson, is now pro-Israel. The 2 go
together. Anti-semites want Jews out of their countries and Zionists say
yes, Jews do not belong anywhere bar Israel.
tried to get change.org to take the petition down but
failed. His charity only targets left-wing politicians
surprisingly and those who oppose Zionism and support the Palestinians.
It is a fake charity and offers no public benefit. It also deliberately
misinterprets or skews opinion polls to suggest that up to half the British
public are anti-Semitic.
expect that the Mail will produce a fair report because today it is
pro-Zionist. In the 1930’s it campaigned against the entrance of Jewish
refugees from Nazi Germany. It hasn’t actually changed one iota
point that if a left wing political group tried to pretend it was a charity in

excusing Hitler’s role in the holocaust and suggested she was justifying the
holocaust. Why? because she quoted from David Ben Gurion, Israel’s
first Prime Minister on why the Arabs don’t see why they should pay the price
for the holocaust and Auschwitz. They later took down this post when they
realised this was a smear too far.
