An Expose of a New Bunch of Israeli-Zionist-Sayanim Operators
By Gilad Atzmon
Al-Jazeerah, CCUN, November 22, 2011
This weekend, Bradford TUC (Trade Union Council) joined the Israeli lobby’s attempt to silence me. This sort of thing is no surprise since my book ‘The Wandering Who’ exposes the devastating continuum between Israel, Diaspora Sayanim, Anti-Zionist Zionists (AZZ) and the influential and varied communities of Shabbos Goyim(1). So, is it a coincidence that last Shabbos (Sabbath) eve Paul Meszaros Bradford TUC’s secretary and some of his fellow unionists got very busy indeed doing the Zionists’ bidding?
These Bradford Trade Unionists clearly had a case against me which was that, as Meszaros said in his letter to his comrades, “in our opinion, one that is shared by many commentators Atzmon is a Holocaust denier and anti-Semite.”
Strong words indeed, and words that one would expect to be accompanied by some concrete and conclusive evidence. Unfortunately this was not the case because, although Meszaros provided his comrades with some quoted ‘evidence’, he forgot to also supply them with any direct link to my original writing. And he had good reason for this omission. The document Meszaros provided for his comrades was a ‘fugazi’ – a fake.
Yes, as outrageous as it may sound, Meszaros asked his fellow unionists to judge my words on the basis of a compilation of carefully selected sentences from five different paragraphs carefully stitched together to look as if it was a single statement made by myself.
Here is the statement Meszaros attributes to me.
“When I was young and naïve I was also convinced that what they told us about our ‘collective’ Jewish past really happened. I believed it all, the Kingdom of David, Massada, and then the Holocaust: the soap, the lampshade, the death march, the six million.
As it happened, it took me many years to understand that the Holocaust, the core belief of the contemporary Jewish faith, was not at all an historical narrative for historical narratives do not need the protection of the law and politicians”
“It took me many years to accept that the Holocaust narrative, in its current form, doesn’t make any historical sense. Here is just one little anecdote to elaborate on:
If, for instance, the Nazis wanted the Jews out of their Reich (Judenrein – free of Jews), or even dead, as the Zionist narrative insists, how come they marched hundreds of thousands of them back into the Reich at the end of the war?”
“I am left puzzled here; if the Nazis ran a death factory in Auschwitz-Birkenau, why would the Jewish prisoners join them at the end of the war? Why didn’t the Jews wait for their Red liberators?”

What Meszaros apparently did not share with his comrades, was the embarrassing fact that the above paragraph was crudely, yet deliberately put together to give the impression that I am indeed a Holocaust denier or an anti-Semite or both.
My original words give a somewhat different impression. (The sentences that were cherry-picked by Meszaros are in red, those he left out are in bold)
"When I was young and naive I was also somehow convinced that what they told us about our ‘collective’ Jewish past really happened. I believed it all, the Kingdom of David, Massada, and then the Holocaust: the soap, the lampshade, the death march, the six million.
As it happened, it took me many years to understand that the Holocaust, the core belief of the contemporary Jewish faith, was not at all an historical narrative for historical narratives do not need the protection of the law and politicians. It took me years to grasp that my great-grandmother wasn’t made into a ‘soap’ or a ‘lampshade’(2). She probably perished out of exhaustion, typhus or maybe even by mass shooting. This was indeed bad and tragic enough, however not that different from the fate of many millions of Ukrainians who learned what communism meant for real. “Some of the worst mass murderers in history were Jews” writes Zionist Sever Plocker on the Israeli Ynet disclosing the Holodomor and Jewish involvement in this colossal crime, probably the greatest crime of the 20th century. The fate of my great-grandmother was not any different from hundreds of thousands of German civilians who died in an orchestrated indiscriminate bombing, because they were Germans. Similarly, people in Hiroshima died just because they were Japanese. 1 million Vietnamese died just because they were Vietnamese and 1.3 million Iraqis died because they were Iraqis. In short the tragic circumstances of my great grandmother wasn’t that special after all.
It doesn’t make sense
It took me years to accept that the Holocaust narrative, in its current form, doesn’t make any historical sense. Here is just one little anecdote to elaborate on:
If, for instance, the Nazis wanted the Jews out of their Reich (Judenrein - free of Jews), or even dead, as the Zionist narrative insists, how come they marched hundreds of thousands of them back into the Reich at the end of the war? I have been concerned with this simple question for more than a while. I eventually launched into an historical research of the topic and happened to learn from Israeli holocaust historian professor Israel Gutman that Jewish prisoners actually joined the march voluntarily. Here is a testimony taken from Gutman’s book
"One of my friends and relatives in the camp came to me on the night of the evacuation and offered a common hiding place somewhere on the way from the camp to the factory. …The intention was to leave the camp with one of the convoys and to escape near the gate, using the darkness we thought to go a little far from the camp. The temptation was very strong. And yet, after I considered it all I then decided to join (the march) with all the other inmates and to share their fate " (Israel Gutman [editor], People and Ashes: Book Auschwitz - Birkenau, Merhavia 1957).
I am left puzzled here, if the Nazis ran a death factory in Auschwitz-Birkenau, why would the Jewish prisoners join them at the end of the war? Why didn’t the Jews wait for their Red liberators?”
As you probably gather, my original words actually give a completely different impression. Rather than deny the Holocaust, I actually want to strip from it, its primacy and to turn it into a universal and ethical message. I actually talk about my great grandmother who died in the Holocaust - but I argue that she wasn’t special at all (though she may be special to me). She had a fate similar to millions of Vietnamese, Iraqis, Germans, Russians and so on. I wonder, why would a socialist such as Meszaros or anyone else for that matter, object to such a universal and humanist approach?
Taking quotes out of context is a common enough Zionist trick, but what we see here is a deliberate attempt to pervert the truth. In Meszaros’ text my words are actually re-assembled in order to give them a new, sinister meaning. You have to ask yourself: What might lead a perfectly decent trade unionist to operate in such a dishonest manner?
So here are some questions to Meszaros and to anyone else tempted to engage in this kind of falsification and deception: If I am indeed as bad as you think, why the need to fake what I say? Why don’t you just present my own original words with their true and original meaning?
I would also like to learn from Mr. Meszaros whether he considers falsifying quotes to be a legitimate, ‘progressive’ procedure?
But I think we know the answers to these questions.
So, I suppose in the end there’s only one question left to answer. Why did Paul Meszaros choose to deceive his comrades?
Well, the answer is that I don’t think that he did. I don’t think that Meszaros did actually falsify the above text. I believe that he was himself fooled by our own and much-loved Jewish ‘anti’-Zionists and certainly by one particular gentleman named Nick Lowles who operates within an ‘anti-Racist’ organization named “Hope not Hate”.
By the time I woke up this morning, London activists had provided me with all the information I needed concerning Mr. Lowles’ ‘Hope not Hate’ and Searchlight, the magazine Lowles until recently, edited. Clearly, we are dealing here with some obvious links with Zionist organizations.
A quick search revealed that Searchlight is certainly committed to ‘fight fascism’ but it is equally committed to the battle against anti-Zionism in the left. “Much more commonplace on the left than Holocaust denial is the comparison of Israel with Nazi German”, complains the ‘far left’ ‘anti’ racist magazine in a clear and open attempt to gate-keep the Palestinian solidarity discourse.
And would you believe it? Lowels is also active on the highly suspicious Socialist Unity – just one more pseudo-socialist cell devoted mainly to Zio-centric gate-keeping.
To the Ultra Zionist Jewish Chronicle (JC) Lowles told that the "worry about antisemitism stemming from the far left's obsession with Israel was a concern". But Lowles doesn't just talk to the JC, he also writes for the rabid Zionist mouthpiece. I guess that as much as Lowles opposes racism , he must feel at home with Zionist racism.
Apparently, Meszaros and his union branch, like so many before them, were simply taken for a Zionist ride. Rather than being asked to respond to my words, they were instead responding to a document that was deliberately and consciously falsified by an infiltrator. The good people in the Bradford union movement have been deliberately deceived by a bunch of Sayanim, embedded deep within the British left.
In case anyone has failed to grasp it, Nick Lowles has every reason to oppose me. My latest book, ‘The Wandering Who’ is there to expose the high and sophisticated level of duplicity of Sayanim, AZZ, Shabbos Goyim and other forms of infiltrators in our midst.
I don’t know how to save the British Trades Union movement and anyway, that’s not my job. But as things stand, Mr. Paul Meszaros and the Bradford TUC owe me one big apology. I hope Meszaros for once, will be brave enough to admit his mistake.
1. A Shabbos goy - a non-Jewish individual who assists a Jewish individual or organization. Traditionally, in those activities on the Sabbath which Jews are not permitted to perform
2. During WWII and after it was widely believed that soaps and lampshades were being mass produced from the bodies of Jewish victims. In recent years the Israeli Holocaust museum admitted that there was no truth in any of those accusations.
Earlier on today it was pointed out to me that a link and a quote within this article was taken from a site that were suspicious of being racist. I removed the link and the quote and i am trying to verify the political affiliation of the source. However, the evidence against Nick Lowles and his ties with Zionism and institutional Hasbara operators such as the Jewish Chronicle are conclusive and remain the same. In fact what we see here is just the tip of the iceberg.

There was a time when Jewish politics and culture were associated with liberalism, human rights, pluralism and freedom of expression. Those days are clearly over. Nowadays, it is pretty much the opposite.
This kind of activity does not serve the Jewish community or its interests. In fact, it gives the Jewish community, as a whole, a thoroughly bad name.
Last week, American academic Norman Finkelstein and I were on the front of the Jewish Chronicle (JC). We were presented as Public Jewish Enemies Number One. We were branded together with BNP leader and a racist Nick Griffin. This was obviously a clear outburst of Zionist hysteria.
This week, in an embarrassingly crude attempt to stop my new book The Wandering Who, the JC now appear to be launching an attack on music. Together with the Board of Deputies of British Jews and other Jewish groups they attempted to pressure the British Arts Council to withdraw its funding from a music festival I am playing at.
To read the JC, click here.
What we see here is scarily similar to the experience of Jazz musicians in Germany during the Nazi era. Astonishingly enough, it is Jewish representative bodies such as the Board of Deputies that are actively engaging in trying to restrict artistic expression. Apparently, some people out there, really drew the wrong lesson from that disturbing era.
Needless to say, they didn’t get far. The Arts Council, stood by its principles of freedom of expression and in a statement responding to the JC's demands, they suggested that The Arts Council shouldn’t "restrict an artist from expressing their views." They stated that the council believes in funding events and artists that show "a diverse view of world society”. Once again, their campaign had backfired.
Of course, the JC wasn’t at all happy. It appears to want to transform the British music scene, cultural gatherings and festivals into Stalinist enterprises and demands the right to dictate its own political agenda to the British public. The JC even went as far as to openly call for its subservient lobby-funded politicians to impose an “immediate sanction”. Reading the JC today, I wonder how long it will take before Hava Nagila becomes a compulsory part of our national musical curriculum.
This is the reality: The most radical exponents of the most vile form of Jewish racist and supremacist ideology are accusing me, an anti-racist campaigner, of being an anti-Semite. Considering that I lead one of the most ethnically varied musical ensembles on this planet - this accusation is absurd, amusing or sad and probably all three. But here’s the good news. On every possible front they are failing. No matter how much these Zionist supremacists convince themselves that I am the ultimate Jew-hater, they have failed to convince anyone else.
By bullying British cultural institutions and harassing artists in the name of the Jewish community, Jewish organizations are achieving nothing but the defamation of the whole of British Jewry.
So, to the Jewish Chronicle and the Board of Deputies of British Jews: You are acting against openness, pluralism, freedom of expression and artistic freedom – probably the most precious values this country has. Perhaps it is worth bearing this in mind.
All the best
Israeli paper Israel-Ayom reports today about a new ‘Congressional bill’ that would require the “American administration to support Israel in a move deemed necessary to defend itself against the Iranian nuclear threat.”
Five Republican congressmen who visited Israel last week disclosed the bill.
The bill states an "expression of support for Israel's right to defend its sovereignty and to protect the lives and safety of its citizens and use all necessary means to confront and eliminate the nuclear threat that emerges from the Islamic Republic of Iran, including use military force in the absence of other diplomatic means available in the near future. "
The initiator of the bill is Rep. Doug Lamborn (Colorado).
If you doubted the colossal danger imposed by the the ‘lobby’ you better wake up NOW!!!
