The fundamentalist and evangelical Protestant Christians in the US who fervently embrace Israel are the single most important block of non-Jewish American supporters of the Zionist state and its policies. But few of these “Christian Zionists” realize just what an odd minority they are among the world’s Christians, and how out of step their views are with traditional Christian principles. Christian Zionists reject the ethical values of Jesus as laid out in the Gospels, and betray fellow Christians in Palestine who are victims of Israeli dispossession and oppression. They also reject the US foreign policy principles laid out by George Washington and other founders, who warned against “entangling alliances” with foreign countries, and holding a “passionate attachment” to foreign states.

This information-packed broadcast dissects lies and deceit from the two world wars. Fantastic stories about German atrocities in World War I were promoted to mobilize public opinion in the US, Britain and France, and the public was kept in ignorance about the scope and horror of the fighting. One of the wars most lurid and widely-circulated atrocity tales was the story that the Germans were boiling the bodies of dead soldiers to extract glycerin for munitions. In World War II, Allied spinmeisters portrayed the disastrous British evacuation of Dunkirk as a great success. It was only years later that the legend of the miracle of Dunkirk was deflated. Another durable Allied propaganda myth was the story of merciless German bombing of the English city of Coventry. Churchill was eager to escalate the killing to enrage American public opinion, and thereby encourage US entry into the war on Britain’s side. For that reason, it was the British, not the Germans, who first began indiscriminate bombing of civilians. As historian Phillip Knightley points out, German news reports about the war were generally more accurate and reliable than those of the Allies.

Social breakdown in the western world, manifest in the recent orgy of rioting in Britain, is the inevitable consequences of a society based on an ideology of individualism, consumerism and the “pursuit of happiness.” Weber cites an analysis by an outstanding British historian, Max Hastings, author of worthwhile books about World War II.

Weber also talks about “Breaker Morant,” a memorable 1980 Australian film about a shameful episode of the Anglo-Boer War of 1899-1902. British imperialists and businessmen, together with Jewish financiers and “gold bugs,” conspired to launch the rapacious and unnecessary conflict. Waging the war with “methods of barbarism,” the British established internment centers, which they called “concentration camps.” Some 28,000 people, most of them infants and children, perished in the squalid camps.

The recent orgy of looting and destruction in London and other British cities is a stern indictment of a failed social-political system. It’s also an predictable consequence of large-scale non-European immigration. In a prophetic speech given in 1968, Enoch Powell, a prominent British political figure, warned that the “mad” policy of non-European immigration would have terrible long-term consequences. If the history of the twentieth century teaches anything, says Weber, it’s the falsehood of the ideology of multiculturalism, egalitarianism and “diversity.” Weber also takes a critical look at the atomic bombing of Japan in August 1945, and shows that this mass killing of civilians was not necessary to end the war.

Defying protests by Russia and Jewish groups, Estonians honor the memory of SS troops who fought and died for their nation’s freedom during World War II. This small Baltic country’s wartime fate discredits the simplistic view of the conflict that prevails in the US. Citing new insights on the Pantheon in Rome, Weber talks about social-cultural achievements of the ancient Greco-Roman world, and stresses that awareness of past helps to better understand our own age, society and culture. Recent news items re-confirm the accelerating “third-worldization” and general social-cultural disintegration of the US. In an update on the IHR, Weber reports on the recent move to new offices. With the help of 18 local volunteers, this laborious task was completed remarkably quickly and smoothly.
