Book of the Year - The Transfer Agreement - A must read for anyone who wants to know the truth about the Israel/Palestinian conflict

It is interesting that some things in history is being re-written to suit whatever the victors want the public to know and this is one of those subjects (Jewish involvement in their holocaust and the US/Jewish relationship). Keith from the blog Little Bit Tired, Little Bit Worn seemed hell bent on believing any lie that is told by America. He has a problem with a statement from a comment that was extracted from the Truthout blog, in particular, the US support/involvement in the Jews ethnic cleansing for 50 years of the Palestinians. Therefore, I thought he should be aware of a book about the Jewish involvement or role in their own holocaust and what led to the creation of the Israeli State. Maybe, this will help him to understand why some people will never buy all the lies that are being spoon fed to the public. This is stuff you will not learn from history books.

The Transfer Agreement

Book Description

In 1933, the Zionist movement concluded a controversial pact with the Nazi government transferring 60,000 Jews and $100,000 to Jewish Palestine. In return, the Zionists halted the worldwide Jewish-led anti-Nazi boycott that threatened to topple the Hitler regime in its first years. The debate tore the pre-WWII Jewish world apart. Ultimately, the Transfer Agreement saved lives, rescued assets and seeded the infrastructure of the Jewish state.

The Transfer Agreement stands out as a still controversial example of a mass Jewish rescue that occurred before the genocide started. The terrible choices its negotiators undertook must now be viewed in the light of the Holocaust.

Edwin Black presents certain truths that have long eluded historians - the financial nexus that served Hitler's obsession with expelling the Jews as an essential prelude to conquering Europe, together with the Zionists' resolve to bring their dispossessed people to Palestine. The American Jewish involvement is of special interest as the author reconstructs the magnitude of the pro- and anti-boycott meetings and the passion invested in them.

The author spent five years on three continents researching and writing this work. He was aided by a team of researchers and translators who unearthed previously suppressed and widely dispersed documents and archives. Already acclaimed by dozens of experts and Holocaust scholars, The Transfer Agreement was described by Dr. Sybil Milton of the Simon Wiesenthal Center as "a spellbinding, exciting book."
