Product Description

From Publishers Weekly

According to one of the authors' anonymous sources, former CIA director Allen Dulles was "one of the worst traitors in American history" because of his involvement in the linkage among Nazi corporations, U.S. oil interests and Saudi Arabia in the 1930s. The allegations are synthesized from interviews with some 500 former intelligence officers of various nationalities. The major powers, the authors argue, have repeatedly taken covert action designed to bring about the destruction of Israel, as much out of greed for oil as anti-Semitism. Among the charges made in these pages: Allied leaders conspired to block the creation of the State of Israel in 1948 for fear its presence would threaten the flow of Arab oil to the West. Great Britain and the United States, while pretending to support Israel during the Six-Day War, passed Israeli military secrets to their Arab foes. The Reagan administration tried to set up Israel as the principal scapegoat for the Iran-Contra scandal. Over the past 50 years, virtually every Jew in the world has been the subject of electronic surveillance by the British with the assistance of American intelligence. Loftus and Aarons wrote The Unholy Trinity.

From Library Journal

The authors (Unholy Trinity, St. Martin's, 1992) argue that the United States and other Western democracies have had a covert agenda to subvert Jewish nationalistic claims throughout the century. That the U.S. State Department has always been anti-Israel has been well documented before, but the authors further their claims by relying on formerly classified American documents and the recollections of many former operatives, or old spies, as they are called here. This book will probably appeal to fans of espionage who like their tales painted in broad strokes. The very chapter titles give an indication of the strident tone of the book, e.g., "Age of Bigotry," "Age of Stupidity," and "Age of Greed." Although there are some interesting nuggets in this book, it is an optional purchase. A much better study on some of the issues raised here is Peter Grose's Israel in the Mind of America (1983).

(...)First of all I have a point of disagreement about the whole concept of secret war. There is no secret war nor has there ever been a secret war. The war is open, continuous and has gone on for thousands of years. It is called anti-Semitism! It is supported by government propaganda, some schools, and even some religions. I just read the book "Genghis Khan" by Weatherford and posted a review at Amazon.com and in that book that describes things happening around mainly 1211 to 1350 AD. In that book the author notes that the Jews (amazingly) were blamed by the locals when the Khan family reached the Danube River. So it was happening then and they are still blamed and vilified. Any place where you have ignorant people you have Jews being blamed. To me it is that simple.
Now for the main parts of the book itself. The premise of the book is interesting. There are many documents and similar that are classified so one really does not know all the historical fine details - of what has gone in the past. What really happened to the body of Hitler in Berlin (?) is one story that stands out in my mind. So the authors have taken this tact and have created a book - a heavy 514 page plus another 115 pages of notes - to dissect and look at past historical incidents relating to Jews, but mainly since 1920. They have used a lot of interviews with people in the intelligence services to get the inside story as Loftus does nightly on WABC. It is a story of greed, incompetence, and hatred of Jews or indifference. They outline many instances where the intelligence services have helped or hindered Israel and the Zionist movement. It is a fine work and a fine read. It is the type of book that will kill most of a weekend with great enjoyment. It contains many fascinating side stories and comments; it is 80-90% right (my guess) and it is entertaining.
It is not a fabulous literary work but it is a solid 4, 4.5 stars. Recommend.

Format: Paperback
FDR appointed Allen Dulles as Secretary of State to spy on him and eventually prosecute him for aiding the Nazis during WWII by extorting high oil prices from the US. Wall Street and Oil magnates helped Hitler build his industrial complex and then aided Germans in escaping with their assets to Latin America.
Ben Gurion blackmailed Nelson Rockefeller into delivering the OAS states' votes in the UN to recognize Israel. Rockefeller agreed if the Israelis would not pursue Nazi War criminals in Latin America. Israel then blackmailed the Soviets into support in exchange for not revealing their secret agents to the British and US.
The Israelis attacked the USS Liberty in 1967 not as a mistake, but on purpose because the ship was monitoring Israeli troop movements and sending them to Nasser. The CIA was caught in an act of War against Israel and agreed to the coverup.
Nixon recruited known Nazi war criminals to help get the ethnic vote. George Bush Sr. dealt with a known Arab arms and drug dealer (and an unknown Russian spy) in a grossly illegal arms for hostage deal that in its course greatly armed Sadam Husseim and known PLO terrorists.
If these tidbits sound so unbelievable that it sounds fictional then you understand the challenge of this book. There is solid evidence and circumstances that support much of these radical allegations, but with so many undisclosed sources ("old Spies") you also have to trust the authors more than the evidence.
It is a fascinating read and much of it may well be true. At the very least it should be extremely thought provoking.

Format: Paperback
When I first came across the title of this little-known book I thought, "another book about Jewish paranoia" of global conspiracy. But right from the beginning, I lost my scepticism because of all the documentation and attribution assembled by the authors.
The book details Western conspiracies (mainly by Britain, the U.S. and West Germany) to forsake the Jews and Israel for Arab oil and Arab interests. The authors begin in 1947 with the beginnings of the formation of the Jewish state and the blackmail she had to resort to in order to get the votes no one wanted to cast. The Rockafeller's are exposed, the Dulles brothers are castigated as committed anti-semites who are as rabid as the Arabs in their desire for Israel's destruction, and the United States' complicity in harboring Nazis after WWII, are all dealt with in depth, all with accredation.
Western kow-towing to the Arab countries is prevalent by every US administration in the name of the Arab "black gold" and Britain is highlighted as the most rabid of anti-semetic governments. Some of the conspiracies dealt with include: the Vatican, Robert Maxwell, the USS Liberty, the Yom Kippur War, the Pollard incident and Iran-Contra, all held together by the double-dealing that started with the Dulles brothers.
This book is certainly an eye-opener if you can accept all the attributions to the "old spies" that are quoted. By the end of the book you begin to understand why Israel's position today is so tenuous, and why the Sharon government has thrown out the "high road" in favor of a "high hand". Puts a lot of Middle East politics in perspective.

Format: Paperback
This is a withering expose, almost unintended and beyond its basic purpose of documenting the 'secret war against the Jews', of the most unintelligent aspect of government a la Machiavel, the Intelligence factor lurking in the shadows. The problem, of course, is that the facts of unnamed 'sources' from the 'old spies' are not fully trustworthy and the whole book is no doubt plausibly deniable. The material requires cautious reading therefore because of the danger of still further disinformation. What a portrait starting with Jack Philby, Ibn Saud, and the Oil Companies, of sordid politicians and their obscure affairs, starring notably the infamous Allen Dulles! The book outstrips its theme in many ways, and while I am all ears to any case for the behind-the-scenes espionage against the Jews (the evidence is certainly convincing), the implications move beyond this question to how we are to take our politics at all, given this degree of dishonesty by all parties, up to and including Bush 41, the object it appears of Syrian blackmail. If one cannot take all the claims as established, one can certainly take the warning to beware of politicians once and for all as beyond redemption.
