[5] A brief acquaintance with the historical 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:

Following Wilson, President Warren Harding stated unequivocally on June 1, 1921, “It is impossible for those who serve the Jewish people not to believe that they will one day be returned to their historic national homeland where they will begin a new phase, but rather a phase greater than their contribution to the progress of humanity”, and he declared his support for the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine. Then came President Calvin Coolidge after him, who declared his belief in a national Jewish homeland in Palestine in 1924, his support for its establishment, his admiration for the Zionist movement, and its efforts to make Palestine accept Jewish immigrants. Next in line was President Herbert Hoover, who conveyed his satisfaction with the progress made by the Jewish community in Palestine. In 1928, he commended the Jewish Zionist Organisation for their “great achievement in Palestine” and emphasised the need to continue working towards the realisation of the concept of Jewish re-emergence in Palestine. Then there was President Franklin D. Roosevelt, who served from 1933 to 1945. During his rule, the Jewish Zionist star, also known as the Star of David and Solomon, was adopted and given an official emblem for mail departments, helmets used by soldiers in the Sixth Division, and American Navy seals, on the print of the new dollar, the Presidential Medal, the police guards in Chicago, and the chest badge worn by the mayor in many areas. He declared at the beginning of his presidency that he was a pragmatist working for America’s interests with the Arab countries, but in reality, he submitted to Zionist influence, both Jewish and Christian. During his presidency, the Zionists were incredibly active, with their activity centred on creating a Jewish majority in Palestine in preparation for the foundation of an independent Jewish state there.

In 1939, Britain passed a resolution known as the “White Paper” that specified immigration to Palestine. In the same year, America announced its rejection of the White Paper, putting pressure on Britain to remove it, and launching Jewish immigration under the control of the Jewish Zionist Agency. Zionist, Jewish, and Christian pressure on President Roosevelt mounted, particularly following the formation of the American Palestinian Committee, which included 200 members of the House of Representatives and 68 members of the Senate. The committee aimed to support the Baltimore Conference’s 1942 program of establishing a Jewish-Palestinian Commonwealth. As a result, Roosevelt declared in his presidential campaign program in 1944 that he supported opening the gates of Palestine to unrestricted Jewish immigration and settlement, as well as any strategy that would lead to the development of a commonwealth – “a free Jewish democracy, and that he is certain that the American people will support this goal, and if he is re-elected, he will help achieve this goal”. However, Roosevelt died on April 12, 1945, and President Harry S. Truman succeeded him. His presidency lasted from 1945 to 1953, and he sought to meet the Zionists’ aspirations. As soon as he took office, he released a statement saying, “The official American view regarding Palestine is to allow the largest number of Jews into it as much as possible,” including the potential of establishing a Jewish state there. In 1947, Truman also announced his endorsement of the partition decision and even requested that other governments put pressure on those who were hesitant and stopped voting on the partition. On May 14, 1948, he announced his recognition of the newly constituted Jewish state in Palestine in his name and in the name of the United States of America and took the initiative to assist it and provide loans. He gave it a loan of one hundred million dollars, followed by subsequent loans, including a loan of 35 million dollars in 1950. There is no doubt that Truman “belonged to and worked for Christian Zionist doctrine, and this is what prompted him to hasten to announce America’s recognition of the Jewish state,” in addition to Christian Zionists’ penetration of government councils and international organisations. President Truman belonged to the conservative Baptist faith, which believes in the literal interpretation of the Bible and believes that the establishment of a Jewish state in Palestine is clear evidence of the fulfilment of biblical prophecies. Clark Clifford, advisor to President Truman and then Secretary of Defence during the John F. Kennedy administration, stated at the White House that Truman studied the Torah himself, and as a student of the Torah, he believed in the historical justification for a Jewish national homeland and was convinced that the Balfour Declaration of 1917 fulfilled the ancient hopes and dreams of the Jewish people. He frequently quoted Old Testament passages about the Jewish desire for Zion and said that the Talmud was his favourite book. Moshe Davis mentions in his book “America and the Holy Land” that when Truman was presented in a Jewish theological temple to those present as the man who helped create the State of Israel, Truman responded, saying, “I am Cyrus… I am Cyrus, and who is that?” Who forgets that Cyrus was the one who returned the Jews from their exile in Babylon to Jerusalem.

It must be emphasised that American President Truman had a significant influence on the events that culminated in the foundation of the Jewish state in occupied Palestine. He was the one who demanded that the British government allow 100,000 Jewish immigrants to enter Palestine promptly during its mandate for Palestine. Additionally, he exerted pressure on the UN to decide to partition the nation, and he was also the one to recognise the Jewish state as soon as it declared its independence, just minutes after it was established at midnight on May 15, 1948, and he worked on the call in international forums to defend and protect it. Then, from 1953 to 1961, Dwight D. Eisenhower was president, and he had close ties with Zionist preacher Billy Graham, leader of the Christian Zionist “Youth of Christ” organisation. He also maintained a close relationship with some Jewish Masonic organisations, and he asserted that America’s interests are inextricably connected to Israel’s. Christian Zionism became a valuable asset for the state more than before at the start of the twentieth century when the “Christian Right” led a campaign against communism. This paved the way for Christian Zionists to rise to power and precise political practices that served the interests of their doctrine. [3]
