In reading Count von  Reventlow's  *Vampire  of the Continent*, I
became intrigued by the idea that so-called "Zionism" is in  fact
a disguise for British imperialism.  Admittedly, von Reventlow, a
German  writing  in  1916  when British-German relations were not
good, has an anti-British  bias.   Nevertheless,  I felt that the
author may have "lurched into the truth" regarding  one  possible
disguise for British imperialism.
On October 19, 1996, Sherman H. Skolnick treated this editor to a
feast at the River Flame restaurant in Calumet City, Illinois.  I
posed this question:  "I read this book by a Count von Reventlow.
He  wrote  a book called *Vampire of the Continent* back in 1916.
He's maybe biased, because he's a German, but as I recall he says
that the Zionist movement is really a British thing, that Britain
wanted to colonize that area." Here is Mr. Skolnick's response:
  You've got to understand  something:  the so-called leading
  Israeli chemists are all  British-trained  Jews.   And  the
  banks   of  Israel  that  operate  in  Chicago,  those  are
  British-founded banks.  And the  way  to  get an Israeli or
  American Jew to scream is to tell the truth:
    "Oh, I'm a Jew. I'm going to put money  in  the  Bank
    "It's not an Israeli bank. It's a British bank."
    "Where  did  you hear that!?  I own 100 shares in the
"But what about the idea that so-called 'Zionism,' behind that is
British imperialism?"  I asked.
  Did you read my Declaration and Counter-Verification in the
  Hillary case?  (Where I told a little bit about that.)  How
  did I get into so much trouble with some of  the  prominent
  Jews  like  Amy  Zisook  and her husband?  For pointing out
  that ordinary Jews like  me,  who  our elders always taught
  that there's Jews  and  there's  non-Jew  Jews  --  there's
  *Hofjuden*,  a  German term for "court Jew."  They may have
  been a Jew  when  they  were  a  child,  but  they became a
  Catholic or something else.
  A person named Ehrlich(sp?) wrote a book, *The Changing  of
  the Jewish Guard on Wall Street*.  That book, that came out
  4  or  5  years  ago, pointed out that the Wall Street bond
  houses have  not  been  actual  Judaism-following  Jews for
  three generations.  They are now Catholics,  Episcopalians,
  and  Lutherans.   But  they  still  call  themselves Robert
  Rubin, this, that, and the other -- Jewish names.  They are
  not Jews.
  Right wingers say,  "Oh!   All  these  Jews are controlling
  everything!"  I did a program in '94 that got me up on  the
  sh**  list.   I pointed out some things, that there are two
  types of Jews:  there's  common  Jews  like me, and there's
  Sephardic Jews -- converted.  They're  not  Jews.   They've
  got Jewish names, but they're not Jews.  They're acceptable
  to  the  Establishment.   And if something goes wrong, they
  make a big scandal, they throw him out, and they says, "Oh!
  Did you see that? That 'Jew' is the cause of it."
  Like Judge Posner representing  the Rockefellers.  He's the
  Chief Judge now of  the  federal  Appeals  Court.   He's  a
  *Hofjuden*.   He's  a  Jew acceptable to the Establishment,
  who does not follow Judaism.   He continues with the Jewish
  name; does not tell the world, "Hey, I'm no longer a  Jew."
  And  if  something  goes  wrong:   to the wall with him.  A
  *Hofjuden*, a throwaway person.
  I dared to point  this  out,  and the Defamation League and
  everybody went after me like I was  Adolf  Hitler.   And  I
  tried,  in  a  nice way, to explain it.  The principal Jews
  who suffered  in  the  concentration  camps  were  not from
  Germany, they were from the satellite  countries:   Poland,
  the  Balkans.   There  weren't  that  many Jews in Germany.
  Most of them fled,  and  they're  in Chicago, New York, and
  elsewhere, with big money.  Most of them are not practicing
  Jews:  they believe in cremation, they believe in  Catholic
  music   in  their  synagogues.   You  go  into  a  reformed
  German-Jewish temple, you  wouldn't  know, with the stained
  glass windows and the organ, whether you're in  a  Catholic
  church or a synagogue.
  On  the  other hand, Zionists need not be Jews.  Zionism is
  simply a homeland in the  middle  of all the rest.  Britain
  set up trans-Jordan (now called Jordan)  and  Palestine  to
  irritate  the  Arabs  and keep them off-balance for the oil
  business.  That's  the  reason  that  they allowed Jonathan
  Pollard, with the help of [Vince] Foster, to give  'em  the
  nuclear  missile  secrets.   Why?   So  that  Israel  could
  threaten not only the Arabs, but the Soviets.
  Do   you   see  the  point?   Israel  started  out  with  a
  million-and-a-half  people  (they've  got  5  million now),
  they're surrounded by 50 million Arabs.  How do you control
  all these Arabs?   Put  the  so-called  "Zionists"  in  the
  middle  to  irritate  them.   And you give them the nuclear
  stuff.   Nobody  points  this  out.   Because,  when anyone
  points this out, they says, "Oh!  You're a  renegade  Jew."
  They  go  after you -- the Amy Zisooks of the world -- they
  go after you.  Why?  They don't want "family secrets" to be
  dragged out.
