It's not at all surprising that this urbane and encyclopedic decimation of Jewish power and pretense has been (for the most part successfully) marked for murder by the American publishing industry. Were Doug Reed's "Controversy" to find its way into the hands of too many thinking people, there would be at least a glimmer of hope for a restoration of Anglo-Saxon power both here and abroad. Let's be blunt: Amazon.com's "review guidelines" probably contain some empurpled fine print, courtesy of their friendly local ADL, to the effect: "Never praise Douglas Reed." So I don't expect this to see print. But in the odd event that one of their proofers was dozing over her "New Republic" and flavored Starbucks as this one flew by (is sarcasm permitted?), let's devote a few words of praise to a much-maligned and underappreciated book. Reed's main subject? The anthropological origins, political and economic goals, and real-life tactics of the Ashkenazi and Zionist "Jews" from the Old Testament era to the mid-1950s. His basic thesis: that this "certain people's" bloodline runs not to the Holy Land of OT times but to the 10th century Khazar empire, and that they've merely applied the redoubtable Khazar warrior acumen to the 20th century's marketplace and political arena to get what they want. Very touchy subjects, these, some of which are currently rising Phoenix-like in the Jewish establishment as "new" controversies, i.e., the (Jewish-produced) documentary on their possible Khazar origins that PBS plans to cautiously float this year. Not to mention the century-old internecine struggle for internal control between the Eastern and Western Jews, the Zionists and assimilationists, the secular and religious "Jews" (those darn quotation marks again). I think we will find, after much bloody debate and maybe more palpable events inside and out of the Jewish people and their state, that Reed was eerily prophetic and mostl! y right about Zionist motives, Jewish identity, and the consequences on the world stage as the true nature of both is slowly revealed. Reed's writing style is much like (his contemporary) Waugh's: elegant, acidic, detached. But as a foreign correspondent for the London Sunday "Times" during WWII and its spawning of the "Jewish" state, he was anything but a detached observer of these tectonic events. The truly open-minded will at least read and attempt to refute Reed rather than smear him. Few books this provocative are as thoroughly-documented or as intelligent as "Controversy", and the powers-that-be know it. This book remains in print, but will become progressively harder to find as the ADL and the New York publishers continue to tighten the censorship screws. This is not a book for the tame or weak-minded. Is it for you?

Douglas Reed has written a 600+ pages monument in which he objectively and precisely describes the history of Zionisme over almost 3000 years.
Douglas Reed shows how a small international group of coordinated ideologists instrumentalize religions, countries, wars and even supranational organizations in order to reach their power and control objectives.
Douglas Reed shows how, by ways of deceptions, threats, manipulations and lies, millions of humans beings, Jews, Christians and Muslins have been sacrificed on the altar of domination.
And the cherry on the pie is Douglas Reed style. You will discover a fluid, synthetic and sharp way of writing backed up with tons of sources and quotations.
Do you want to get an objective perspective on the history of mankind ? Don't wait any more, buy " The Controversy of Zion", I can tell you, you will not regret it.

I was able to find a copy of this book, though it took a while to read it: it was painful to see how a group of people, psychopathic and delusional, has caused so much pain and suffering to the rest of humanity and shaped (keep shaping) the political, geographical and social sphere. If anyone wants to understand the truth behind the politics of today, the Powers that Be, and the conflicts of the Middle East, should definitely read this book.
One can judge it all they want, but Reed is using an extensive list of resources, mostly newspapers of his days, to illustrate the ugly picture of our world. This book is complementary to Political Ponerology by Andrew Lobaczewski, who explains the "why" as Controversy of Zion tells you "how", our world came to the dire situation it is today.

If you want to know who is really running the governments of the world, who is actually benefiting from all of the wars and why, then you have to read Controversy of Zion. Mr. Reed's information is not only from the exhaustive documents and references he has found, but from his own experiences as a World War II correspondent.
This is a truly amazing book!

For 20 years from the publication of his first book on the Reichstag fire trial in 1934, Douglas Reed enjoyed a reputation as probably Britain's best political analyst and author. All his books written during that period demonstrate a quality of investigative journalism that is still unmatched. His writing is researched in depth and is subjective in comment only by virtue of his unparalleled level of personal experience of major political events of the 1930's and 40's.
"Controversy" is his summary of the circumstantial evidence for the existence of a "supra-power" at work in world events throughout the first 50 years of the 20th century. The link with earlier political upheavals is covered in detail, as is the probable origins of the religious influences. It is prophetic in that much of what he suggests has come about or continues its influence to this day.
"Controversy of Zion" is ESSENTIAL reading for any serious student of modern history or "political science", primarily as a benchmark against which the credibility of other works might be measured.

This is perhaps the most conclusive rendering of the history of the twentieth century from a conspirational perspective. It is absolutely great! Reed herein demonstrates clearly the linkage of the Zionist State with the international Bolshevik movement. Because of this, the book is hard to find. Those who have the wherewithal to find it will have in their hands an abolute key to understanding modern history and our current quagmire.

This book, The Controversy of Zion, infuriated me. I could read it only short sections at a time. On practically every page it challenged my conventional view of history with newly unveiled facts that made me realize I've been lied to and led by the nose by that conventional view all my life. From its mid nineteen-fifties completion Journalist/historian Douglas Reed has given the book a ring of authenticity, and prescient currency--very well researched, referenced, and attributed with much first-hand, on-the-spot witnessing of inside events by him during the two World Wars, between and afterwards.
Remarkable here are the detailed revelations of the mostly covert machinations of the Judaics and their Gentile puppets--tip-top-most placed--for the achievement of Zionism and the Jews general financial and political advantage and supremacy. In England and the US these were intricate international back-room operations for the most part. But all that time, for the relatively small population who was aware of what was going on, the furtherance of Zionism was contrary to their popular wish.
And author Reed makes clear that not all Jews were in favor of the Zionist project. Many Jews have vehemently opposed it up to his day and even now. The driver groups were then mostly comparatively new Jews, the Khazars or Eastern European Jews, (ironic that they are not "The People of the Book"). Yet Zionism had, and has, an almost magic life, or nine lives of its own through some not-entirely clear means or over-force. Everything in that regard though points mainly to the Russian Rabbinate along with the very, very low profile backing of the Rothschild's with other associated Jew bankster's with their gargantuan money and power.
Early on, the book systematically traces the two competing thought-lines from their first Biblical development. One was benign, which has mostly died out; the other destructive. That one started with the Levites, through to the Pharisees, then formalized in the Talmud and finally resulted in our times in the twin world revolutions of Communism on the one hand and Zionism on the other. Those being the inheritance in the Twentieth Century almost lineally direct from the Pharisees now the Talmudic Rabbis, (yes, the same club, the Jews who put the hits on the ancient prophets, Isaiah and Jeremiah, and then Jesus).
Reed points out that roughly 2500 years ago, relative to the indigenous population in the Levant, the Judahites were commanded by "The Law" thusly: "...thou shalt smite them, and utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them, nor shew mercy unto them:..." (Deuteronomy, 7,2). What kind of a god supports that kind of commandment? It seems clear that the Levites then, and their co-religionists now, are the children of a lesser god, (lesser than the Father God told of by Jesus who was attempting reform). To use the descriptor "Judaeo-Christian" for the Christian belief system seems false and a sop toward the demanding power of Judaism.
The Zionist Jews treatment of the Palestinians for over half a century now may seem like deja view in regard to this Old Testament commandment to slaughter humans, especially in light of the obscene 2008 Israeli war, "Operation Cast Lead", against Gaza civilians, (are we forgetting American phosphorous shells which burned flesh through to the bone and Flechette and DIME bombs).
If there is a lesson from Reed's book it's to stop these Zionist Satanists before they bring down the whole Mid-East and then the world in their image of a New World Order to be headquartered in Israel, (which, the way things are going, might then be one of the few sovereign states remaining). In anticipation, Rothschilds have recently built the Supreme Court there but sized it to be a World Court.

Have you ever read the bible, and noticed there were often two versions to every story? For example, the creation of Ch. 1 is different from that of Ch. 2. Have you ever really paid attention to the huge numbers of contradictions, even in the historical record? Have you ever noticed there seem to be two opposing sides, two different groups of people telling the same tale? In Exodus God commands "declare my name throughout the land," teaching this faith to all. Later on and throughout the bible, this new name for god, Jehovah, this "god" says god's name is hidden, must never be known or spoken. This new god loves the "sweet smell of burning flesh," and the "cries of the children being burned alive is pleasing unto the Lord." The "god" of the Jews, those from the tribes of Judah and Levi, is NOT the same as that of the rest of the tribes. To the Jews, the priests ruled, and gave to themselves the endless rights of interpretation of God. This interpretation became the Talmud. Talmud contains a lot of wisdom, a lot of good. It also contains a LOT of pure evil. Hate is taught for any who are not a Talmudic Jew.
Have you ever wondered WHY there can never be peace between Zionist Israel and any other country? Or between the Ashkenazim Jews and the ANY other peoples or religions? Have you ever wondered WHY the Ashkenazim (European) Jews have been evicted from SO many countries, SO many times? From countries and culture far removed, the only common thread is Talmudic Judaism. Read this book, and then you will fully understand. The Qur'an (Koran) teaches us, never accept any point that any will give you, even in Qur'an, until you have verified this for yourselves. God says, I have given you the hearing and the eyesight, and I have given you the intellect, and I expect you to use them. Therefore, I, me, I am telling you, do not accept what I have said here until you have seen for yourself. To the Christians, whether they be lay persons or pastors, STOP accepting what you are told about Israel, until you have verified what Israel really stands for. Read this book, or others cited here, and then you will understand the truth. In Talmud, Jesus is called Yeshua, Mary is Maryam, and they are discussed in detail in the Sanhedrin section of the Talmud. IF you love Jesus, this will make you cry, but it will open your eyes to the truth. In the Qur'an, Jesus is called Isa and Mary is called Maryam. Reading of these, how Islam sees these persons, you might just begin to view Islam in a whole new light. Talmud teaches that Yeshua (Jesus) was a criminal who practiced black magic, and that Maryam (Mary) was a whore. Qur'an teaches that Isa (Jesus) was al massih (the Messiah) and that Maryam (Mary) was the noblest of women, the spiritual mother to all Islam.
I grew up in Israel, studied Talmud in Yeshivah and trained in the Israeli army. It was in Israel that I lost my faith, and came to realize I was fighting for the wrong side.
I have read Ben Hecht's Perfidy, Andrew Carrington Hitchcock's The Synagogue of Satan, and began to understand the finer points I always knew were missing. Upon reading this book, Douglas Reed's The Controversy of Zion, I finally understood. The holiest holiday for the Jews is Yom Kippur, the Day of Atonement. Have you Christian pastors who believe they are the chosen people EVER wondered what this holiday means? Have you ever analyzed the great prayer, the Kol Nidre? It is asking forgiveness of any debts owed to non-Jews, and for any harm done or that will be done to non-Jews. Does the true God advocate such hate?
Schindler's List: In the end, the Jew tells Oskar Schindler, "Talmud teaches us that to save one life is as if we had saved all mankind, and to take one life is as if we had saved all mankind." THIS IS A LIE. This is an actual quote, FROM QUR'AN. It is Islam that teaches this one quote. What Talmud teaches is, "to save the life of a Jew is to save all mankind, and to kill a Jew is to kill all mankind." Talmud teaches that the life of a Jew is priceless, that the goy (non-Jew) is a beast on two legs, who must be enslaved or killed.
In Islam, God teaches that the mission of Jesus was to warn the Jews, the Pharisees, to return to the teachings of God and abandon their Talmud, or God will forever remove His Covenant from them, and they will be the accursed race. Jesus taught, God does not just love Jews, but anyone who will make this Covenant with God, and keep it. In Talmud, Yeshua (Jesus) is blamed for the destruction of their Temple, for their captivity and diaspora. They blame everyone for their suffering, but themselves.
I will cite one website that teaches the truth about the Jews. If your heart and mind are pure, of love, you will see the truth. If you are filled with hate, you will see hate. Remember, God gave you a brain, and He expects you to use it.

Douglas Reed examines the innermost doctrines and psychopathic characteristics of the "Laws" and rules of the Torah. He explains with examples throughout history what this has led to. It is most disturbing, very fascinating, and an absolute requirement for understanding how it is possible that a cult could maneuver itself on a course of total self-destruction, destroying everything around it during this self destruction. The Zionist false flag attack on the US on 9-11 becomes more easily understood after reading this book. And remember Douglas Reed wrote this just after WWII. He was Britain's foremost World War II correspondent.
Today, this book is more relevant than ever before.

Traces in a non-prejudicial manner the orgins of zionism from old testament, and early history to today. Articulates the role zionism played in various cultures in revolutionary France, Russia, ancient Greece Roman, and ancient Palestine, and in the genesis of our world wars. A must read for any scholar of Israel and Zionism and politics or religion. A must read for any true Christian.
