Adelaide Southern Cross (Newspaper) - February 7, 1947, Adelaide, South Australia
National Library of Australia As the Earth turns civil War impending in Palestine Ryphe announcement that British and foreign civilians Are to be evacuated. From Palestine and the troops and their families to remain in bar Racks and compounds is a warning that a full scale civil War is impending in that unhappy country. It is evident also that the More Law abiding elements of the jews and the official jewish Agency Are unwilling to stand against the terrorists. They Are intimidated and they have no Confidence in the ability of the British to control the situation which has Arisen. It appears indeed that. Britain May decide before very Long to walk out on the whole affair by officially sur rendering her mandate to the , and this will place the United states in a rather difficult position Gomm Mumy on wexted off aha. % Sidla there must be reckoned the fact that the Kuomintang nationalist cause was suffering through the too close association of the leaders with a foreign army and the belief that they de Pended upon its support. Nationalist China has been recognised As an in dependent Power and face de mands that she should not lean too hard upon the foreigner lest the struggle with communism should appear As the struggle of two puppet regimes backed by Washington and Moscow respectively. V. Moreover there can be no Doub. That american backing has been used to strengthen a regime Rotten with oppression and corruption and cry ing out for Reform. now it Sterns is to promote the liberalising or time reactionary system by a Ming Ling of the threat of withdrawal with the Promise of conditional assistance. Order and Freedom in China put the trouble in China is that a Large part of most tyrannical features of the governing machine have been brought into existence precisely to guard against the propaganda of the red fifth column which has established its own much More ruthless and efficient despotism at Yean. The Liberal leaders for which Douglas Wilkie has such affection Are mostly too old to Lead a newer and better China and not Tough enough to maintain a National cause which must still be fought for. The sort of Deal with communism which they might be expected to attempt would probably mean the Selling out of China to the soviet As Eastern Europe has been sold out. For the rest it s Fine to abuse venal officials but the difficulty is to replace them by virtuous and Dutiful ones especially in the East. The Small handful in the third parties of which our commentator approves includes University professors and students and overworked underfed intensely patriotic minor officials a combination which has been seen in other places besides China but never playing a vigorous or Politi Cally effective role. Devastated Burma t he affairs of Burma since the War have received less attrition in our press than those Oft Ndia indo China and Indonesia. The first thing to notice about the country is the devastation wrought by a War which brought destruction to its roads Bridges and transport facilities As Well As to its Oil and Jiining instal lations. Its great Prosperity and Export Trade have been ruined and its european rulers and exploiters have lost face enormously As a re sult of their Retreat before the japanese. The latter had the sense to give the burmese at least the name of Independence and a National govern ment and army of their own. This was popular though the japs were not and there was no enthusiasm whatever for the return of the White lords. The patriotic burmese forces resisted almost to the end and were then Given an amnesty and allowed to spread the impression that their last moment rally drove out the japanese and that they Are now being deprived of the fruits of Victory the . Have reappeared As the people s anti fascist league under the familiar communist and fellow traveller inspiration while the Imperial defence forces have been filled up by the Mountain Peoples chins Kachina and Korens who stood with the British through the. Struggle. The new league nationalists keep the country in a ferment and prevent All Progress in the work of rehabilitation which is so essential and which could be accomplished fairly soon Given the Goodwill and labor of All. The land is full of captured stolen and abandoned arms so that banditry is naturally Preva Lent it has been described As the chief occupation of the burmese at the present time. The incentive to rebuild is weakened = by the fact that there is always enough to eat in this food producing land the Idle Burman does not starve and will not now grow More than he needs. He has been promised Dominion status but if there is to be rehabilitation the British cannot walk out. Indeed even burdened As they Are they will be obliged to Bear a Large part of the expense of a rebuilding work for which their government is morally responsible since the devastation was due to their failure in defence. The mistake of handing Burma Back from a military to a civil administration too soon has now been rectified and the end of last year saw authority in the Strong hands of general Ranee a Soldier with civil service experience. He is a Man who May be trusted to War against the Savage lawlessness which is the first great enemy in Burma As in Many parts of the Orient to Day. If it happens. For while the pales Tine jews Are very Well equipped and May now be expected to beat the arabs in the first stage of any struggle they cannot fail ultimately to lose the general War with the Middle East moslem which will inevitably follow unless the americans intervene in place of the British. The. Whole situation in fact is the result of action taken in the United states which has now the largest and richest jewish Community in the world and it can Only be cleared up finally by action taken there. The zionist adventure with its spectacular developmental works and social experiments is thoroughly in economic it has been made possible by Gigantic subsidies from american jewry. The original aim of those behind the movement was to put in and maintain a number of immigrants which would enable them ultimately to secure predominance Over the arabs. The Arab revolt and the concessions made to the natives under the White paper with its strict limitation of immigrants showed that this plan could no longer proceed with British support. At the same time anti semitism in Europe was becom ing constantly fiercer and producing a reaction of intensified militant jewish racialism in its victims. This is seen in the curious reflection of the nazi blood and soil doctrine characteristic of the extremists of zionism to Day the men of the Stem gang and the Airgun who Are masters of the situation in Palestine. These men stand for the aim of establish ing an overwhelming jewish military Force in Palestine As the nucleus of a jewish totalitarian zionist state a Force capable of holding the land against British and moslem with the financial backing of american zionist jews. The illegal immigration. Ryphe illegal immigration during the White paper Era has been de signed with this object Young men and women who Are trained parti sans mingling racial fanaticism with marxist atheism form the bulk of these cargoes and to them Are added for purposes of propaganda a sprinkling of expectant mothers old women and children. The purpose of the shipment is to increase jewish fighting strength. These people were sent to Palestine in terrible conditions recalling those of the old slave ships and Many of them were them selves doubly victims of nazism and of their own terrorist underground. The question was How to dispose of them and the answer of the British was not very Wise. Until recently the ships were intercepted _ and the immigrants Token to Camps in North Ern Palestine., then when the next month s quota fell due they were re leased to fill it thus taking priced. Ence of the Law abiding people who had duly applied for permits. This meant that illegality paid and that the anti British militants were Able to select their own trained men and have them admitted by the British authorities. It was Only last year that this policy was put an end to by the present British government. The whole business is enormously expensive the up keep of the pales Tine communities the equipment of the guerilla army and the bringing in of emigrants but Money is always available even for the Price of a British passport and identity card whose Black Market Price in Lorn Don is �250, i believe. But the Money is found the fantastic wealth at their command is evidence of the enormous backing which the extremists enjoy. No peace by partition it lans of partition will not solve the problem even if they were accepted they would not be honestly worked. As things now stand the jews Are Given a part of Palestine with control of immigration they will fill the land allotted to them to bursting Point and then demand Mote living there is no possibility of peace for Palestine except by putting an end to the flow of jews there while providing those who wish to escape from Europe with an outlet to lands of the new world. But this policy will never be made effective except by Grace of America and the political Power of the jews there especially in new Yorkton Gether with the strength of anti British prejudice and leftist propaganda which they can enlist in their support and the general tradition of american liberalism make it difficult for Washington to devise a curb on zionist militant activities. Nevertheless i think the time is coming when those who Rule there will have to do so unless America is prepared to throw its forces into the struggle on behalf of zionism against islam. We can Only Hope they will make their decision before the jewish race fanatics bring new tragedy upon themselves and their fellow countrymen throughout the Russia and the Middle East Phe question of Palestine however cannot be considered without re lation to russian As Well As american policy in the Middle East. The pre sent red policy is a Complex one aiming As usual to create the Maxi mum of trouble and social conflict in the land of War outside the area of soviet control. On the one hand the . Has been encouraging and helping the transport of illegal immigrants to Palestine which creates Britain s most difficult prob. Lem on the other the authorities in the puppet states have been indulging in a Good Deal of anti semitism apparently inspired from the Kremlin and the jews have been blamed for the failure of the Ukraine Harvest. This together with the continued hostility of the people who identify jews with their communist oppressors and accuse them of Black marketing and profiteering has led to a continued trek Westward from the soviet controlled areas providing fresh fuel for the fires of zionist Militancy. Finally Russia every where continues her flirtation with moslem nationalism the deadly enemy of the zionists encouraging the Arab Peoples to look to Moscow for sympathy Andraid in their aspirations for Independence.
