The "Jacob's Trouble" Series:

The Jews and the British Empire

And as an echo bridging the distance of centuries comes the complaint of those English merchants, true Britons who in 1684, soon after the Jewish invasion of England under Cromwell, in a case connected with the East Indies Company, said, "Those Jews are aliens, infidels and perpetual enemies of the British Crown."

by L. Fry

The succession of events which have led to the almost total loss of British prestige in the sight of the world, the failure in the lamentable Ethiopian affair, Britainís recognition of Bolshevism in Russia and Spain, and mistaken policy in India, Palestine, Egypt and elsewhere, make it imperative for every Briton to enquire into the causes of the rise and fall of the British Empire.

Those words "British Empire" have swelled the hearts of many Britons with patriotism, loyalty and devotion. Patriotic idealists believed that the term embodied the aspirations of a great people to spread the greatness of their acquired civilization over the uttermost ends of the earth. To them, possessions, colonies, dominions meant the extension of that beneficent power.

For the sake of implanting or defending the reverenced flag in remote places, they cheerfully and nobly shed their blood and sacrificed their lives...And the British Empire, emerging from the small Kingdom of Great Britain, was born, developed and prospered. Eventually, the British flag waved proudly over islands and continents in all parts of the hemispheres; it crossed seas and oceans, commanded respect and even fear.


Britain ruled the waves and Britain was the head of a mighty Empire. School children learned to love and reverence its name; British youths worked for its development and dreamed of it in terms of growth and defense while the population as a whole believed that the British Empire meant all the unexpressed national idealism they carried in their hearts.

How deep must be the sorrow, how keen the shame of such men and women whose sad fate it is to witness the rapid decline of their once mighty country.

Few were those who knew that apart from the idealistic there was yet another aspect of the British Empire, namely that of mercantilism.

That side of it does not necessarily inspire national pride, perhaps for the very reason that it does not fall under what patriots understand as national. Present day British mercantilism is international, It has lived and thrived on British blood, work, resources and skill, but it is not British in essence.

Hanseatic Monopolists

Trade and commerce as understood by the British were based on principles of trust, fair play and honest dealings. An Englishmanís word was his bond. It is this inherent straightforwardness which caused the English merchants of the middle ages and later centuries to become the victims of Jews and wily foreign traders of the Hanseatic League. It also stands at the base of the further exploitations practiced upon them by Jews for the realization of their Messianic ideal of World Domination.

The rise of the British Empire is clearly linked to this Jewish Messianic ideal, bearing to-day the name of Zionism, which aims at universal economic and financial control to be followed by political power in every nation.

A short retrospect will make the statement clear.

Throughout the ages, they have had among many devouring ambitions two specific ones, viz., control of trade and commerce, and also that of bullion; in present day parlance it signifies control of national raw materials, of imports and exports, of price-fixing and of precious metals as also of all channels of distribution.

Holland Supplants Spain

The gratification of such grandiose ambitions entailed penetration into all countries productive of supplies as well as the control of means of transportation by land and sea. Penetration was to be effected by means of conquest, Nations were therefore lured, in turn, into undertaking adventurous campaigns to distant countries and succumbed to promises of glory and prosperity.

Such is the history of the Spanish and Portuguese World Empires. Spanish and Portuguese sailors and soldiers fought for the possession of lands where Jews later implanted their trade.

Thus did Portugal have the monopoly of Oriental trade from 1500 to 1600.

When the arrogance of the Jews who, along with wealth, had gained political power in the Iberian peninsula became unbearable, and when their undermining of the Christian faith and traditions of those two countries led to the Inquisition and their subsequent expulsion, the Netherlands, having an efficient Navy, were elected to replace the Portuguese. The Dutch were easily inflamed with the idea of creating a great Netherland Empire.

Just as the Spaniards and Portuguese had done, they supplied soldiers, sailors and ships between 1603 and 1640; they drove out the Portuguese from alI their positions at Goa, in the East Indies, Ceylon and Java -- Jewish trade went on unhampered under the new nominal owners, but it was diverted to Amsterdam and Antwerp.

Cromwell Re-admits Jews

Just as the Spaniards and Portuguese had done before them, the Dutch paid with their work, skill and blood for their supremacy as a maritime power in the 17th century.

The development of Englandís sea power and spirit of enterprise under Queen Elizabeth, the foundation of the Company of "the Governor and Merchants of London trading in the East Indies" in 1600 coincided with the Dutch expansion and made Britain loom as a possible formidable rival. As Jews were not then openly admitted into England it meant that the independent British trade, if allowed to develop unchecked might shatter Jewish monopoly.

Ceaseless efforts were therefore made to obtain the repeal of the laws of expulsion and, as is known, they were crowned with success when Cromwell granted the petition for their return, presented to him by Manasseh ben Israel in 1655. This same "Protector" of Jews remained insensible to the anger displayed by English merchants when they learned of his concessions to the "returning" aliens.

William of Orange

The importance of Britain to the schemers for a World Empire can be measured by the fact that two Jews, Ferdinand Carvajal, of London, and Isaac Suasso, of Amsterdam, financed the invasion of England by William of Orange, Suasso alone contributing the sum of 2,000,000 florins for this undertaking (1689).

The Dutch not having been found by the Jews as tractable as had been anticipated, their doom was sealed; and in the secret councils of the Elders of Zion of those days, Britain was elected to replace the Netherlands.

The Britons of that period thought only in terms of "colonies" and set out to conquer. In course of time, they treated the Dutch as the latter had treated the Portuguese; constant battles raged between the two until Dutch supremacy received its death-blow in 1758 at the battle of Chinsura. From 1781 to 1811, England wrested from Holland all her colonies.

Meanwhile while Dutch and British blood flowed freely, Jewish trade went on unshaken; it increased and prospered.

France Debarred

The financial Jewish power had been transferred from Amsterdam to London under William III (of Orange) and the chief financiers there were the Sephardim Jews, the Mendez da Costas, Abudientes, Salvadors, Lopezes, Fonsecas and Seixas -- all Marranos.

On no account was France to be allowed to develop an Empire and become an independent rival, so England was used to wrest from her her Colonies in India, America, West Indies, Canada.

The more Britain expanded, the greater grew the Jewish power and control in the economic and financial realm.

A Kaleidoscopic look at the main events of British history from the early part of the 17th century will show the rapid expansion of Britain and her changing political control passing from her own hands into those of men alien to her faith, race and nation.

At home, civil strife leads to the overthrow of monarchy true to the traditions of Edward I and is replaced by the Protectorate of Cromwell, tool of the Jews.

Cost of Zionism

Abroad conquest and emigration go side by side to extend British influence alongside with the growth of a Colonial Empire. Conquest is effected by ceaseless warfare on sea and land, against Spain from 1656 on, against the Dutch until 1757, against the French.

India is gained by a succession of wars: Three Burmese Wars, 1823, 1882, 1885; War against the Mohammedan rulers of Sind; two Sikh Wars, l845, 1848; two Afghan Wars, 1838, 1878; Chinese War in 1856.

The British go through the horrors of the Black Hole of Calcutta and of the Indian Mutiny of 1857 to defend the rights of the East India Company.

In the New World, they colonize America and behind them follows Jewish trade and slave traffic.

They wrest Canada from the French, all at the point of the sword and bayonet.

In Europe, they fight a succession of wars against different nations and secure more and more power in the Mediterranean after the Napoleonic Wars, the Crimean and Russian-Turkish Wars.

Tradersí Profits

The laurels of victory gained by British bravery and valor cheer the hearts of the nation. Streams of British blood have flowed, countless British lives have been sacrificed but meanwhile Jewish coffers get fuller and fuller, full to overflowing; the Bank of England is their Counting-house and the British carry to and fro the precious bullion acquired and stored by Jews...After the Napoleonic Wars England has laid all her possessions at the feet of Nathan Rothschild.

Henceforth, Britain will do the bidding of her real masters; she has become the tool of the schemers against all she holds dear, namely, her faith, her patriotism, traditions, civilization. She grants the "returned" aliens equality of civil rights; they may and do become mayors over Christian population, and within a short time Britain is ruled by a Jewish Prime Minister, Disraeli, first and foremost a Jew and the flunkey of the powerful Rothschild financiers.

One of the consequences of this disastrous political mistake is the transformation of the national attitude of Great Britain and her colonies into that of the British Empire. Disraeli who inspired it knew what he was scheming for, the British people did not. But with him, Zionism is carried up to the very heights of the British Throne, a Zionist World Empire is on the high road to realization.

Role or Dlaraeli

Under Disraeli, and inspired by him as revealed in his works, there begins loud agitation for the return of Palestine to the Jews. That gateway between the East and West must be secured and the Mediterranean become a British possession to ensure the security of of Jewish trade. Gradually, Zionism becomes the pivot of British rule.

Egypt is an impediment; Egypt must be submitted. More British blood is shed at Tel-el-Kebir 1882; Hasti, Khartoum 1885, Handub 1888, Toski 1889, Afafit 1891; in the Indian Operations 1896 to 1900, at the Battle of Omdurman.

British blood it is which must swamp the "Cairo to the Cape road," And what of the South African War to secure gold and diamond fields for the Jews and for them alone! Once more British and Dutch blood drench the battlefields.

In the wake of British advance everywhere, Jewish trade has found new fields and gained security, it has grasped production at its source and started the era of trusts and monopolies

A Zionist Empire

At home, meanwhile, Jewish power gets steadily stronger, but drunk with the notion of the mighty British Empire, Britons see only the surface; they still believe that they are ruled by their own Monarch and elected men, and they fail to grasp the ghastly truth...The Great World War even fails to open their eyes. On the battlefields of France, and afterwards in Ireland the best and most virile elements of Britain perish in order that for their British Empire which they die to defend there should be substituted the Zionist Empire. Henceforth, the history of Great Britain becomes that of Zionism.

The setting up of what Britons believed was the British Empire has cost much blood. The time has come to open up the National Ledger and reckon the actual costs of Zionism and the gains of Britain.

Price Britain Pays

For a period of over three hundred years, Britons set up a glorious record of bravery and determination and an unexcelled example of remarkable colonization work. Against this magnificent record comes the losses inflicted on British national honor evidenced by her Jew-inspired policy in South Africa, in her dealings with the Arabs to whom the Balfour Declaration is a striking example of broken faith, the betrayal of Russia her loyal ally into the hands of Jews, her stifling of all British ideals at the Jewish Peace Conference and participation in the League of Nations, seat of the Zionist World Super-Government. As a natural sequence has come the Governmentís shameful official recognition of Bolshevism in Russia and Spain.

Against a record of glorious prestige won and recognized by the whole world must be set up the fact of having been made the laughing stock of all nations when mighty Britain being now but one of the many pawns on the Zionist chess-board of the League of Nations, supinely endured the moral defeats which Italy imposed upon her during and since the Abyssinian campaign.

Material Losses

And what of the material gains which Manasseh ben Israel made glitter in his letter to Cromwell? Materially England has reaped no benefit; her millions of unemployed are there to proclaim this sad fact. Economically her Zionist rulers have fettered the initiative of her people and through the Zionist P.E.P. (Political Economic Planning) program of the Manchester School of Zionists, headed by the Rothschilds, Chaim Weizmann and Israel Moses Sieff and Co., Britons are being steadily deprived of liberty, property, freedom of initiative and are burdened with intolerable taxation. British industries and agriculture have been and are being systematically destroyed by Socialism, Communism and Bolshevism, those offsprings of Zionism.

But meanwhile, Jewish trade and prosperity have suffered no setback; they are thriving on international loans and the control of huge monopolies.

Spiritual Losses

Spiritually, International Freemasonry, the main channel of Jewish influence and of which English Grand Lodge is as much a branch as the Continental Grand Orient and Scottish Rite Masonry, has laid low the Christian Church and given much scope to Kabbalistic Theosophy, gradually destroying the spiritual Christian-Aryan heritage of Britons. No asset appears in the National Ledger to offset this great loss.

The picture is one of gloom. The rewards and gains which colonizing Britain might have expected to enjoy after her sacrifices and labors among peoples to whom she brought the benefits of her civilizing influence, whose standard of living, moral and physical she raised, for whom she built hospitals, instituted educational and industrial centers, carried out costly schemes of irrigation and transportation, are all to be ruthlessly snatched from her. She is not to be allowed to enjoy the fruits of her sacrifices any more than were Spain, Portugal and the Netherlands.

Italy Supplants Britain

The secret Jewish powers that she unwittingly served have used their socialist and communistic propaganda to incite the peoples of Egypt and India to revolt against her and decreed that Italy is to supplant her in the Mediterranean.

Her Navy and her Man-power have been used to the limit by the international traders and exploiters of the world-other navies have grown powerful in this and the other hemisphere; they are coming into service and will gradually be pressed forward to occupy first place whilst Britain recedes and recedes....

In Europe power is to be partly diverted from London to Rome. To the British Empire must succeed the Roman or Italian Empire. The remaining part of the power goes to Moscow, Tokyo, New York.

Honest Merchantsí Warning

Too late Britain is learning that not she was the ruler of the League of Nations, but the government which she mistook for her own since the days of Disraeli. And as an echo bridging the distance of centuries comes the complaint of those English merchants, true Britons who in 1684, soon after the Jewish invasion of England under Cromwell, in a case connected with the East Indies Company, said, "Those Jews are aliens, infidels and perpetual enemies of the British Crown."
