(Alfred Lilienthal, 1915-2008)
In the 1950s, Alfred Lilienthal warned that the U.S. is fighting Israel’s wars to dominate a region. The US is not fighting for our freedom as the propaganda machine preaches.

October 6, 2019, marks the 11th anniversary of the passing of a truly great American, historian Alfred M. Lilienthal.
He was 94. As early as 1953, the graduate of Cornell University and Columbia Law School who yearly visited the Middle East stirred up no small displeasure with a Reader’s Digest article, “Israel’s Flag is Not Mine.” After a negative sermon on the article was given in a New York synagogue, he was awakened by a rank, threatening phone call. “If you don’t stop, we will have you killed. You are undoing everything we are struggling for…layoff what you are doing.”
I was pretty well informed but surprised I had not heard of the books or Alfred Lilienthal. The Zionist Connection‘s stark, white cover featured Israel’s Star of David symbol superimposed (appropriately) over a section of Stars and Stripes. ( The Star of David is in fact an old occult symbol adopted by Zionist leaders for the new state and has no connection to biblical King David. )
The book’s inside cover notes that the author ” finds the meticulous organization of Zionism reaching into the White House, mobilizing public opinion, exercising control over Congress, repressing opposition through anti-Semitic labeling and exercising inordinate control over the media of information…endangering American national interests.”
Before 1948 Lilienthal notes there was essentially no Jew-Arab conflict. Once the new state was established, Zionist leaders “set in motion a simultaneous flow of Jews into the country and Arabs from the country.”
Quoting David Ben-Gurion, “Israel is the country of the Jews and only the Jews.” Lilienthal called the displacement of the 1.3 million, Christian and Muslim Arab population, a devastating abrogation of the western professed ideal of self-determination…this is the ‘original sin’ that underlies the entire Palestine conflict.”
The Zionists employed psychological warfare and outright terrorism to drive out Palestinians and “expropriate their homes, lands and property.” One of the most heinous examples was the massacre of the small Arab village of Deir Yassin, wherein a surprise attack, 250 old men, women and children “…were cold-bloodedly murdered in their homes with no signs of fighting…I can’t forget what happened there…I saw the atrocities committed…” witnessed an Israeli Haganah officer.
Lilienthal wrote that the massacre of Palestinians was “carefully concealed from the west–Americans in particular…who out of abysmal ignorance and a gnawing sense of guilt over the Holocaust accepted in toto the ideological Zionist fairy tale including the myth that the Arabs were being well treated” but in practical, economic, human and social terms they were being decimated.
The resulting enormous humanitarian and refugee crisis that Israel created, “was virtually unreported to the American public” and constituted “a cover-up and cover-over with few parallels in the annals of man.” Alfred suggested part of the reason was a ” a letter by the press advisor to Israel’s Washington Embassy: It advised that anyone interested in the Arab refugee problem was to be considered ‘pro-Arab oriented’ and hence ‘anti-Semitic.”
Other topics covered in The Zionist Connection :
* Dual loyalty encouraged among American Jews.
* The 1967 Israeli attack on the USS Liberty which killed 34 American sailors, injured scores more. The US inquiry a “white -wash.” Israeli intent was to sink the vessel and blame the Egyptians.
* The Khazar’s adoption of Judaism in 740 AD was “historical fact.” Zionism’s founders, Herzl, Weizmann, etc. were Khazar descendants and NOT Hebrews thus nullifying their claim to Palestine.
* Christians deceived and in bondage regarding modern Israel.
* Accused Jews and Christians of essentially worshipping the state of Israel while ignoring the moral implications.
* Exploitation of the Holocaust even though Zionists cooperated in sending thousands of their fellow Jews to their deaths for political purposes.
Posts on his website included two important pieces: Liberating America from Israel written by former Republican Congressman, Paul Findley. In the first paragraph, the 22 year veteran of the U.S. Congress states: “Nine-Eleven would not have occurred if the U.S. Government had refused to help Israel humiliate and destroy Palestinian society. Few express this conclusion publicly, but many believe it is the truth.”
Another was a write up about Edwin Wright, a son of missionary parents, who did an extensive study of Zionism and learned Zionist ideology says they must have a large enough area to accommodate the whole of the world’s Jewish population.
Also from Wright’s writings: “It is not brought out in Zionist propaganda in America but what they claim is all the territory from the Suez Canal…to southern Turkey …Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, and Sinai from…the Nile to the Euphrates.” “This is the territory they call, “Eretz Israel” ( Greater Israel ).
They also believe their messiah will not return until they control all of Eretz Israel.
Reading about the horrible mistreatment the Israelis dealt the Palestinians, I couldn’t help thinking of a scripture, that Lilienthal also quoted: “But the stranger that dwells among you shall be unto you as one born among you and thou shalt love him as yourself; for you were strangers in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.” Leviticus 19:34
Unable to personally respond to emails in 2008, I was told by his webmaster he had indeed embraced Jesus Christ as his Messiah. A photo on his website showed Alfred squatting down holding a young Palestinian child while several others gathered around him.
He exhibited more of the love of Christ to those unfortunates than the American Christian Zionists who blindly aided and still aid their persecutors. “By their fruits you will know them.”

I was raised Catholic, saved in Evangelical and Full Gospel circles. I believe there is a lot of good Biblical teaching within Churches. I have a problem with silence and willful ignorance in the face of deception and mass murder and the reasons it was done. I believe the Church is deceived about Zionism, which they support publicly.
