When the British Cabinet issued the Balfour Declaration in 1917, it was over the strenuous objections of its only Jewish member, Edwin Montagu. But non-Jews, including many anti-Semites, tipped the scales. They saw Zionism as a way to advance British imperialism and the Masonic “New World Order.”
Montagu, who was the Secretary of State for India, told Prime Minister Lloyd George. “All my life I have been trying to get out of the ghetto. You want to force me back there.”
An assimilated Jew, Montagu regarded Judaism as a religion , and viewed Zionism as a “mischievous political creed, untenable by any patriotic citizen of the United Kingdom.”
His story teaches us that the New World Order is an elite conspiracy led by specific members of certain Jewish and non-Jewish dynastic families who often intermarried. It is not “Jewish” in terms of the Jewish people as a whole, who historically prefer assimilation.
In May 1917, a committee representing the leading Jewish organizations published a statement in the London Times saying: “Emancipated Jews… have no separate political aspirations…the establishment of a Jewish nationality in Palestine founded on [the] theory of a Jewish homelessness, must have the effect of stamping the Jews as strangers in their native lands.” (The Cousinhood, p.260)
The Balfour Declaration promised Jews a “national home” in Palestine. Partly, it was payment to Zionists for getting the USA into WWI on Britain’s side. Zionist president Chaim Weismann fumed that Jewish opposition was the main stumbling block to consummating the deal.
The Jewish community was split. The Samuels and the Rothschilds favored the Balfour Declaration; Cohen, Magnus, Mountefiore and Montagu were against it.
“If it had been merely an issue between Zionist and non-Zionist factions within the community, there is little question that the latter would have won,” writes Chaim Bermant in “The Cousinhood.” “But there were the Gentile Zionists to consider and they carried the day.” (262)
These Gentiles, i.e. Freemasons, included Arthur Balfour, Lord Milner, Lord Lothian (Phillip Kerr) and Lord Robert Cecil. Chaim Weismann recognized that Zionism is part of a much larger game: “To [Cecil], the re-establishment of a Jewish Homeland in Palestine and the organization of the world in a great federation were complementary features in the next step in the management of human affairs…(Reed, Controversy of Zion, p. 249.)
Georgetown University professor Caroll Quigley lists about 100 participants in this world government conspiracy in the Appendix of, “The Anglo American Establishment” (1981) They include the above names and Cecil Rhodes, Lionel Curtis, Wiliam T. Stead, Geoffrey Dawson and Earl Grey. I recognized only three Jews: Nathan Rothschild, Leopold Amery and Alfred Beit.
Quigley relates how a group of aristocratic families centered on the Cecils has dominated British politics for centuries. They spawned the secret society organized by Cecil Rhodes and Nathan Rothschild in 1891, which Rhodes called “a church for the extension of the British Empire.” (34) Known as “The Round Table” and the “Milner group,” its goal was world domination by the British elite and the recolonization of the US.
The “church” was Freemasonry. The politicians that backed Zionism were all high-ranking Masons. Some were probably Illuminati. “World government” is dedicated to enthroning Lucifer as God of this world. Zionism and Communism are Masonic organizations dedicated to this agenda.
