Editorial Reviews

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).

Format: Paperback
There are many events that occur in this world that, at the time of their occurrence, are not well understood by the public at large (often because of deliberate mis information being released by the governments involved). In addition, the individuals who make decisions regarding what to do, especially in time of war, do not want to compromise the sources of the information they used to make their decisions. This book does an excellent job of presenting detailed background information, much of which is supposedly gleaned from "old spies" as to some of the information, and dis information, used by various individuals to make very momentus decisions that related to foreign policy and the conduct of war. While the title of the book is somewhat misleading (a better title would be "keep the oil flowing and the US supreme in the Middle East)
the discussion of intelligence, counter intelligence, and personal biases holds your attention. The main weakness of the book is relying on the word of unnamed "old spies", however the book is well footnoted for further research if one was so inclined.
The revelation that the British still have a desk at the National Security Agency at Ft. Meade, dating from a World War II, whereby the British can wiretap US Citizens (without a court order), and then share the information from that wiretap with any US Agency (under another WWII agreement still in force relative to sharing of intelligence information), thereby allowing a US Government agency to obtain wiretap information on US Citizens without getting a court order is especially interesting.
I would recommend the book to anyone who is interested in the world of foreign policy, intrigue, and intelligence methods.

Format: Paperback
John Loftus and Mark Aarons don't just open a can-of-worms in this disturbing book but rather a Pandora's Box of accusations that if only partly true begs a massive reversion of our current understanding of the major political players of this century. "The Secret War Against The Jews" is divided up into three historical periods: The Age of Bigotry, 1920-1947, The Age of Greed, 1948-1973, and The Age of Stupidity, 1974- 1992. "Bigotry" examines the dawn of middle east oil development and key players Jack Philby, Ibn Saud, an the Dulles brothers. The second section, "Greed," expands the activities of these individuals in and out of the WWII. The third and last section, "Stupidity," deals with the Iran-Contra players namely V.P Bush, Bill Casey, and a host of evil characters. Perhaps a better title for this book should have been "The Secret War Against the Public," for as the authors point out we all are the Jews.

Format: Paperback
This book details the consistent anti-Jewish and anti-Israel efforts of a series of American and British notables using information from the archives of all the intelligence communities. Some of the names that come up for serious indictment are: Allan Dulles, Nelson Rockefeller, W.A.Harriman, Henry Kissinger, Jack Philby (father of the British mole Kim Philby)and a host of other well knowns. It documents the blackmailing of FDR by King Ibn Saud for continued oil supplies at the outset of WWII in exchange for FDR's 'neutrality' on immigration of Jews into the Mandated Territories in Palestine. It also describes the key efforts by Allan Dulles and Rockefeller to maintain material supplies to Nazi Germany via their American clients. Dulles' role in securing many German war criminals save haven in the US and South America is also documented. It is important to note that there are 115 pages of references and notes to support the accusations enumerated. Though this book is in print for seven years there has never been a libel or defamation suit brought against the authors. They quote such statements as that of Justice Goldberg: "The Dulles brothers were traitors". The authors clearly show how the public image that many of these covert anti-Israel celebrities polished was at total variance with their behind the scenes actions. Kissinger for one deliberately withheld vital information and supplies from the Israelis at the start of the 1973 war because he thought it would be good for them to "get their nose bloodied". And it was Gen.Alexander Haig, not Nixon and Kissinger, that saved the Israelis with timely armaments to turn back the massive tank attack the Egyptians had mounted in the Sinai. Anyone who wants to see how individuals with power can subvert the principles of our democratic nation must read this book again and again.

50 of 62 people found the following review helpful By John C. Landon on April 14, 2003
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.
