THE SECOND WORLD WAR can be summed up quite simply: It was all about creating a “new world order” for the Jews. A prominent member of Britain’s wartime cabinet told America’s Jews as much in October 1940, in hopes of enlisting their support to bring a reluctant America into a war against a real New Order proposed by Adolf Hitler for all of Europe.
By giving Jewry this assurance, Britain sought to ensure that this powerful minority would use all its enormous resources and influence to deliver the United States into the European conflict in the same way it had done in 1917.
In World War I England gave its pledge — unbeknownst to the Arabs, whose support against the Ottomans it was also courting at the time — that in return for Jewish help in getting America into that war, it would allow the Jews to establish a Zionist state in Palestine. The deal became known as the Balfour Declaration.
In a replay, Britain sought to do the same thing in World War II, which the United States had not yet entered. Reporting on this follow-up British pledge, The New York Times published the following account on page 10 of its October 6, 1940, issue:
‘New World Order’ Pledge to Jews
“In the first public declaration on the Jewish question since the outbreak of the war, Arthur Greenwood, member without portfolio in the British War Cabinet, assured the Jews of the United states that when victory was achieved an effort would be made to found a new world order based on the ideals of “justice and peace.”
“Mr. Greenwood, who is Deputy Leader of the British Labor party, declared that in the new world the “conscience of civilized humanity would demand that the wrongs suffered by the Jewish people in so many countries should be righted.” He added that after the war an opportunity would be given to Jews everywhere to make a “distinctive and constructive contribution” in rebuilding the world.The message was delivered last week to Dr. Stephen S. Wise, chairman of the executive committee of the World Jewish Congress, by Rabbi Maurice L. Perlzweig, chairman of the British section of the congress. Rabbi Perlzweig arrived from England Monday evening.
Intention to Right Wrongs
“Comparing the statement with the Balfour Declaration of 1917, Dr. Wise declared that in a sense it had “wider and farther reaching implications,” as it dealt with the status of Jews throughout the world. He said that Mr. Greenwood’s message could be interpreted as a statement of England’s firm intention to help right the wrongs which Jews have suffered and continue to suffer today because of Hitler’s “disorder and lawlessness.”
“Mr. Greenwood, sending the Jews of America a message of “encouragement and warm good wishes,” wrote:
“The tragic fate of the Jewish victims of Nazi tyranny has, as you know, filled us with deep emotion. The speeches of responsible statesmen in Parliament and at the League of Nations during the last seven years have reflected the horror with which the people of this country have viewed the Nazi relapse into barbarism.
“The British Government sought again to secure some amelioration of the lot of persecuted Jewry both in Germany itself and in the countries which were infected by the Nazi doctrine of racial hatred. Today the same sinister power which has trampled on its on defenseless minorities, and by fraud and force has temporarily robbed many small peoples of their independence, has challenged the last stronghold of liberty in Europe.
‘New World Order’ Forecast
“When we have achieved victory, as we assuredly shall, the nations will have the opportunity of establishing a new world order based on the ideals of justice and peace. In such a world it is our confident hope that the conscience of civilized humanity would demand that the wrongs suffered by the Jewish people in so many countries should be righted.
“In the rebuilding of civilized society after the war, there should and will be a real opportunity for Jews everywhere to make a distinctive and constructive contribution; and all men of goodwill must assuredly hope that in new Europe the Jewish people, in whatever country they may live, will have freedom and full equality before the law with every other citizen.”
“In an interview at the Hotel Astor, Rabbi Perlzweig declared he was certain Mr. Greenwood “speaks for England.” There is a clear realization, he added, that freedom and emancipation for the Jewish people are tied up with emancipation for people everywhere. The message, Rabbi Perlzweig remarked, was the subject of earnest consideration by the British Government.
“This is a declaration in behalf of the whole world,” he observed. “Here the British Government expresses clearly what it hopes will take place after the war is won.”
TODAY WE HAVE that “New World Order” which was promised. Some, with good reason, have suggested that it might be more accurate and appropriate to refer to this latter-day arrangment as a “Jew World Order.”
Indeed, however, there is nothing new about it at all, but rather the reverse. It is the same Old Order under a new guise, representing merely the extension and consolidation of Jewish power.
That power began with the corruption of rulers by ghetto usurers in the 16th and 17th centuries, and which has exploded since the French Revolution and so-called Jewish emancipation.
It is within this historical context that we find ourselves today. It is only within this context that we can begin to understand the current collapse of the West as well as those attendant ills, which are merely its symptoms.
And it is only within this setting that the struggle of the ages now taking place can be fully grasped.
