[4] Brief acquaintance with the intellectual servitude of American ideologues to Zionism

In The Name of Allah, The Most Merciful, The Bestower of Mercy.

Allah [The Exalted] said:

وَإِذَا قُلۡتُمۡ فَٱعۡدِلُواْ وَلَوۡ ڪَانَ ذَا قُرۡبَىٰ‌ۖ

And when you testify, be just, even if (it concerns) a near relative. [1]

When you testify by way of a statement to judge between people, differentiate between them in a discourse, and speak regarding matters and circumstances, be just in your speech, adhere to truthfulness regarding those you love and those you hate, be fair and do not conceal what needs to be made clear because it is forbidden and tantamount to injustice to divert (from justice and fairness) when speaking against the one you hate. [2]

Therefore, we remind ourselves of the fact that not all Jews are engaged in the plots of the Zionists, as Shaikh Abu Iyaad [may Allah preserve him] stated, “It is important to note that not all Jews are involved in these intrigues and the Jews as a population have, throughout history, been subject to the whims and desires of their religious and political leaders, and have been made to undergo much persecution as a result”. Must read below:

When the British Foreign Secretary issued the Balfour Declaration to the Jews in 1917, American President Woodrow Wilson ratified the promise in a letter to the American Jewish Zionist leader Rabbi Stevie Wise, saying: “I have observed with sincere and profound interest Weizmann’s constructive work in Palestine at the request of the British Government, and I would like to take this opportunity to express my satisfaction with the progress of the Zionist movement in the United States of America and the allied countries, since Mr. Balfour’s announcement in the name of his government in agreement to establish a national homeland for Jews in Palestine, and promised that the British government would make every effort to facilitate the fulfilment of this goal”.

It is important to note that President Wilson descends from parents who belonged to the Christian Church, Christian Zionism, and was raised on Protestant teachings, from which Christian Zionism emerged, and he declared that his religious feelings were the motivation for him to work to help return the sacred Land to its people. The fact that Congress endorsed the Balfour Declaration, as several American writers have pointed out, illustrates the penetration of Christian Zionism into decision-making channels in America- amazingly, with Zionist and Hebrew themes. They quote as an example of Congressional Zionism the words of Indiana Representative William A. Cox, who said, “Just as Moses delivered the Israelites from slavery, the Allies are now delivering the Jews from the clutches of the ugly Turks, which is the appropriate conclusion to this world war. Judea must rise up as a nation, independent, with the power to govern itself, advance, and achieve its ideals in life. I feel that I am expressing the thoughts of the American people, and certainly the thoughts of those with whom I discussed this issue. That is, the government of the United States of America must exercise its appropriate powers to see this Jewish state established, and formed to spread the ideas and traditions of ancient Judea”.

In 1922, Henry Cabot Lodge, Chairman of the House Foreign Relations Committee, said in Boston, “It seems to me appropriate and laudable that the Jewish people, in all parts of the world, should desire that members of their own race should have the right to return to their lands, which was their cradle, and in which they lived and struggled for thousands of years. Indeed, I can never bear the thought of Jerusalem and Palestine falling under the control of the Mohammedans; that Jerusalem and Palestine, sacred to the Jews and the relatively sacred land of all the great Christian nations of the West, would remain in the hands of the Turks had seemed to me for years like a stain on civilization’s forehead that must be removed”.

In June 1922, the Senate approved the Balfour Declaration, deciding that the United States of America supported the establishment of a national homeland for the Jewish people in Palestine, in accordance with the conditions included in the British government’s November 1917 promise, known as the Balfour Declaration. Then the House of Representatives authorised a more Zionist formulation in the same month, as indicated in its decision made on June 30, 1922, the text of which is as follows: “Whereas the Jewish people have been looking forward for many centuries and longing to rebuild their ancient homeland, the Jewish people must be able to re-establish and organise a national homeland, in the land of its forefathers, thus providing the House of Israel with the opportunity that it has been denied for so long -the restoration of Jewish life and culture in the ancient Jewish homeland.”

After US President Woodrow Wilson signed the Balfour Declaration, his successors committed to working to fulfil that promise, and showed active sympathy for Jewish Zionism, in order to establish a Jewish state in Palestine, and then American Zionist presidents committed to protecting and defending that state after it occupied Muslim countries (i.e. Palestine, Golan Heights).
