Hitler was a Godsend for Israel
August 18, 2009
by Henry Makow Ph.D.
If Hitler didn't exist, Zionists would have had to create him. Maybethey did.
The numbers (from Edwin Black's The Transfer Agreement) tell the story.In 1927, about 15,000 of Germany's 550,000 Jews considered themselves Zionists.That's less than 2%.
The vast majority of German Jews "vehemently rejected Zionism as an enemyfrom within." They were Germans. Eighty thousand had fought in thetrenches and 12,000 had died. "Nowhere was the opposition of Jews [toZionism] so widespread, principled, and fierce as in Germany," a Zionisthistorian wrote. (168)
Thanks to Hitler, 60,000 German Jews emigrated to Israel between 1933 and 1941.Thanks to a "Transfer Agreement" between Nazis and Zionists, Jewish property valued at $100 million was transferred to Israel in the form ofGerman industrial exports used to build Israel's infrastructure. The TransferAgreement brought in tools, raw materials, heavy machinery, appliances, farmequipment as well as labor, and capital to finance expansion. Many of Israel'smajor industries, like textiles and the national waterworks, were thus founded.(373,379.)
This at a time when there were only 200,000 Jews in Palestine, many anti-Zionist religious Jews. The daily wage of a Jewish worker in Palestine was $1 aday. There were 800,000 Palestinian Arabs.
