1. Nazis were preparing to invade Ireland, files reveal

By Fergus Black
Friday August 27 2010
GERMAN troops would have landed in Ireland had an invasion of Britain gone ahead in WWII, newly released files suggest.

The files also reveal a German intelligence agent was reported to have sought to use Ireland as a base for spying on its neighbour during the war.

Details of the invasion plan were released by the National Archives in Britain yesterday, 70 years, to the day, since three women were killed in a Luftwaffe bombing raid on the tiny village of Campile, Co Wexford.

The just-published MI5 file reveals that Ireland would have been targeted for German landings had the Luftwaffe won the Battle of Britain.

The plan, which would have involved the landing of German shock troops at Dover, was abandoned because invading troops would have faced attacks by the Royal Air Force.

Ireland's inclusion in the invasion plan is revealed in an extract of a post-war debrief of a German soldier, Cpl Werner Janowski, who worked for the German intelligence service, the Abwehr.

"Janowski states that it was planned that landings would be attempted at several points along the English coast, in Scotland and in southern Ireland but the main attack would be centred around the Dover area," according to the file.

The National Archive said his reference to Ireland was the only one made in the Janowski file, which revealed that German shock troops wearing Allied uniforms were to make the initial landings and hold strategic positions before the main invasion force could be brought across the Channel in barges. Historian Diarmaid Ferriter said: "These would have been contingency plans and they would have caused great concern to Irish military intelligence."

Other details in the MI5 files tell how it was also planned to use Ireland to spy on England.

2. Did Giants Exist'
Answer: Yes!
Is there proof of them'
Answer: Yes and No.
Bone remains from what are assumedly apes of ca. 18 feet tall have been found. These apes according to their skeletal remains stood upright as humans do.
Also other human bone remains of very large size have been found but "explained away".
In addition implements, stairways, and even buildings suitable only for giants have been found but these have been explained as cultural features i.e. ordinary humans made implements and built edifices of gigantic proportions for their amusement or for some kind of religious reason.
In other words evidence exists that if interpreted in the right way would show the existence of giants.
It would seem that the academic world is against this since it is contrary to their accepted postulates.

On the other hand, eccentric "believers" sometimes tend to go to the opposite extreme and simply invent evidence.
We need to be constantly on our guard.

3. Insights into the Balfour Declaration that Affirmed British Support for a Jewish State
'View With Favor' by TOM SEGEV

Published: August 20, 2010

On November 2, 1917, the British government expressed its sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations and announced that it would use its 'best endeavors' to facilitate 'the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people.' The announcement came in a letter from Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour to Lord Rothschild, the unofficial leader of the British Jewish community. The Balfour declaration became the diplomatic foundation stone of the state of Israel; it is considered the original sin by Israel's opponents.

The Origins of the Arab-Israeli Conflict
By Jonathan Schneer

In this comprehensive study, richly documented by diplomatic correspondence, Jonathan Schneer concludes that the famous declaration seems to have just missed the sidetrack of history: in contrast to a common myth, Britain's support for Zionism was not the result of an inevitable process. In fact, as Schneer reveals, shortly after Balfour's promise to the Jews, the British government offered the Ottoman Empire the opportunity to keep Palestine and to continue to fly the Turkish flag over it.

Chaim Weizmann, the leading spokesman for Zionism in Britain... began to solicit support among the British soon after he settled in Manchester in 1904. He could hardly speak English in those days: his first contacts with British officials were conducted in French. But if he was taken aback by the snobbery and coolness that awaited him at Whitehall, he made sure to conceal his uneasiness, acting as if he commanded an almost omnipotent power: world Jewry. The British believed he did.

Obviously there was no 'Jewish power' controlling world affairs, but Weizmann successfully pretended that the Jews were in fact turning the wheels of history. For once, the anti-Semitic image of the Jews proved useful ' they were believed to be so maliciously dangerous that one would do best to acquire them as allies rather than as enemies.

Beginning in 1916, the British hoped that in exchange for their support of Zionism 'the Jews' would help to finance the growing expenses of the Great War, which at that time was not going very well for Britain. More important, policy makers in the Foreign Office believed that Jews could persuade the United States to join the war. In this sense, as Schneer points out, the decision to issue the Balfour declaration 'was based upon a misconception.'

But fear of the Jews was only one part of the story. The other part, which Schneer neglects to explore, was the genuine admiration many of Britain's leaders, including Prime Minister David Lloyd George and Balfour himself, felt for the Jews and their history. These men were deeply religious Christian Zionists. They had grown up on the Bible; the Holy Land was their spiritual home. Modern Zionism, they believed, would fulfill a divine promise and resettle the Jews in the land of their ancient fathers.

As part of this context, Schneer expertly analyzes the passionate and fascinating controversy between non-Zionist and Zionist Jews that preceded the Balfour declaration. The Zionists spoke in the name of Jewish nationhood; their Jewish opponents denied that Jews even constituted a separate nation.

The Balfour declaration used deliberately vague language. The term 'national home' was chosen in order to minimize the Zionist dream, that is, to make Palestine an actual Jewish state. The Arabs, whose 'civil and religious' (not national and political) rights were not to be prejudiced, as the declaration put it, were referred to only as 'existing non-Jewish communities.'

Take Britain's magnificent, if abortive, effort to detach the Ottoman Empire from the Central Powers. The idea was to orchestrate what would today be called regime change in Turkey. The new rulers would then make a separate peace with Britain, retain Palestine and get a handsome bribe for themselves, millions of American dollars. The central figure in this drama was a man named Basil Zaharoff, later Sir Basil, an Ottoman-born arms dealer and self-made diplomat whose corruption, pomposity and eccentricity British policy makers could not resist.

The Balfour declaration thus finds its place among a multitude of fruitless schemes and indulgent fantasies, except, of course, that in this case, surprisingly, the British by and large kept their word. For at least two decades they allowed the Zionist movement to bring hundreds of thousands of Jewish immigrants into Palestine, and these new arrivals set up hundreds of settlements including several towns, as well as the political, economic, military and cultural infrastructure of the future state of Israel. But if Israel's existence originated with the British, so did the Palestinians' tragedy. The Balfour declaration was only the opening chapter of a still unfinished story.
