People put great store in quotes and purported quotes, but these are often faked.

Fake Zionist Quotes

Scattered around the Web are numerous pages of "Zionist Quotes" that show Zionism as an evil, racist conspiracy. Many of the quotes are forgeries, hoaxes and inventions. The quotes were fabricated to discredit Israel, Zionism or Jews.  not to inform or enlighten anyone.  The intent of the doctored quotes may be to  "prove" that "Zionism is Racism." and that 'Zionists' planned the transfer of Arabs from Palestine from the start and to demonize Israeli, Zionists and Jews.

How Fake Quotes are Made

Fake quotes are manufactured in a number of ways:

Presenting fiction as fact - A satirical and fictional "interview" with an Israeli general was presented as a real interview of Ariel Sharon supposedly don by Amos Oz.

Confabulation - According to Benny Morris, Ben Gurion wrote to his son that "we must expel the Arabs." These words could not be found in the Hebrew text of his letters, but apparently in an English version.

Quoting out of context - A portion of a speech or letter meant ironically or with an obviously innocent intent is quoted as standalone prose. For example, before the establishment of the state of Israel, David Ben Gurion gave a speech noting that Arabs would be nearly a majority in the new state unless the Zionists acted. Ben Gurion explained envisioned massive Jewish immigration. That part of his remarks is omitted so that the unsuspecting reader thinks that Ben Gurion was proposing "ethnic cleansing."

Omitting key phrases - For example the phrase  "We bought the lands from the Arabs" was omitted from a Moshe Dayan quote to make it seem like he admitted that Zionists had stolen all the land.

How to Spot Fake Quotes

Sometimes fake quotes can be spotted because the language is particularly obnoxious, or because what are supposedly Hebrew names or place names have been distorted by someone who does not know the language. An Israeli statesman would not be likely to use racist or violent language in public and no Israeli would have a name like "Ouze." "Quotes" of that type were concocted for a credulous Arab-speaking audience ad translated,

Crude hoaxes can sometimes be because they refer to persons who do not exist. There are no such people as General Ouze Merham or spokesperson Tziporah Menache.

Quotes that are given without an original source citation or with many ellipses are suspicious.

How to Deal with Fake Zionist Quotes

It is not possible to find the origins of every fake quote and hoax and should not be necessary. The burden of proof should be on those who propose the material, since new hoaxes can be fabricated much faster than they are refuted, but it is not so. It is ver time consuming and difficult to prove convincingly that a quote is a hoax.

Some real quotes may be quite obnoxious. You cannot be made to be responsible for every unfortunate utterance of every politician and should not try to defend every utterance.

Always demand to see the original document and quote, not somebody's citation of the quote, part of the document or an inexact translation.

Search the Web with a phrase from the quote to see if someone has already debunked it or if it can be found in the original context. If the quote appears at known hate sites such as rense.com, jewwatch, zundelsite, stormfront, aryannation88, sodahead, electronic inifadah, miftah, or godlike productions, it is probably fake, especially if it cannot be found at respectable and balanced Web sites or other authoritative sources.   Google translations are often good enough to verify quotes in languages you do not know.

The printed word, especially in an academic book, or article, has an awesome authority. The invented quote, with it non-existent journal citation, will be often be copied out of the purest motives and in total innocence.

Sample Fake Zionist Quotes

Not every fake quotation can be debunked. I present only a somewhat arbitrary sample of what appears to be the most popular hoaxes. Just because you cannot find a"Zionist quote" here does not mean it is legitimate.


Fake 'Zionist' - Tziporah Menache

 

This quote is egregious because even the Nazis admit it is a fake. You can look for it at the Stormfront Web site, where it is also debunked.  

There was was evidently no such person as "Tziporah Menache" in the role of Israeli spokesperson. She was not a spokesperson 2009.

"You know very well, and the stupid Americans know equally well, that we control their government, irrespective of who sits in the White House. You see, I know it and you know it that no American president can be in a position to challenge us even if we do the unthinkable. What can they (Americans) do to us? We control congress, we control the media, we control show biz, and we control everything in America. In America you can criticize God, but you can't criticize Israel." Israeli spokeswoman, Tzipora Menache 2009

The fabrication first appeared supposedly in a Pakistani Web site, but cannot be found there. It was de-bunked not by Zionists, but by anti-Semitic and anti Israel Web sites, apparently because the Web page contained a virus.

At abovetopsecret.com/forum/thread433959/pg1 we find:

After much careful research from many members of the ATS community it has been concluded without a doubt that this thread is a hoax. The quote itself came from a single source which has been shown to be fictional. Furthermore, careful research has shown that the only mention of the spokeswoman's name, ever, is in articles relating to this supposed statement. In short, we are not even able to establish if the woman exists at all.

At rense.com/general85/quote.htm paranoid racist Dick Eastman writes:

Subject: It's a disinformation-bated trap Fw: Israeli Tzipora Menache: "We control the stupid Americans"
 

"You know very well, and the stupid Americans know equally well, that we control their government, irrespective of who sits in the White House. You see, I know it and you know it that no American president can be in a position to challenge us even if we do the unthinkable. What can they (Americans) do to us?..." --fake person "Tzipora Manache" -- the quote sends people looking for Israel into a search where they find a virus download.
 

This is scripted stuff -- scripted for the effect it would have on us. The goal is to get people googling for Tzipora -- where they will find a link that will download a virus. The fake quote is like the a doll attached as bait to the trigger of a landmine -- those investigating the influence of Israel will attempt to hunt down Tzipora Manache and will fall into the trap.
 

It should not be necessary to explain that the fortunecity address probably gut the virus by coincidence, and not as the result of a sinister Jew-Zionist conspiracy.

Even the anti-semites are ashamed of this crude fabrication. Nonetheless, the hoax quote is presented as real at a large number of Web sites including  radioislam.org/eng/We-Control-Stupid-Americans.htm; wakeupfromyourslumber.com/node/10635; heidilore.wordpress.com/2009/02/04/israeli-spokesman-says-we-control-stupid-americans/. 

 

http://www.camera.org/index.asp?x_context=2&x_outlet=73&x_article=766

Former Israeli President Katsav was quoted in the Jerusalem Post, May 2001 as saying:

"There is a huge gap between us (Jews) and our enemies, not just in ability but in morality, culture, sanctity of life, and conscience. They are our neighbours here, but it seems as if at a distance of a few hundred meters away, there are people who do not belong to our continent, to our world, but actually belong to a different galaxy." Israeli President Moshe Katsav. The Jerusalem Post, May 10, 2001.

This quote is used repeatedly as evidence that Zionists are racists who consider that Palestinians are inferior. The words were probably ill-considered, but they were a reaction to the brutal murder of 14 year old Koby Mandel and his companion. They were tempered by words of tolerance and moderation. The actual text that appeared on May 11, 2001 in the Jerusalem Post:

President Moshe Katsav said yesterday that Israel would never stoop to the brutality the Palestinians displayed in the stoning to death of two Tekoa teenagers this week.

There is a huge gap between us and our enemies - not just in ability but in morality, culture, sanctity of life, and conscience," Katsav told reporters at Beit Hanassi.

We would never stoop to the kind of brutality inflicted on the victims in Tekoa and Ofra," he added. "They're our neighbors here, but it seems as if at a distance of a few hundred meters away, there are people who don't belong to our continent, to our world, but actually belong to a different galaxy."

Katsav said Israel must change its approach to the Palestinians, but stopped short of voicing exactly what that new approach should be -- although he appeared to imply that retaliation is at times necessary.

Force is no solution to anything," he said, "but sometimes it's essential."

Referring to the brutal murders of two young boys from Tekoa, Katsav said he is sure there are Palestinians and other Moslems who oppose terrorism, but it was terrifying to realize how much cruelty and hatred the Palestinians harbor against Israelis.


Doctored Quote: Jew Banker Conspiracy??

This alarming quote appears at numerous pages of the "New World order" and similar ant-semitic sites:

"We will have a world government whether you like it or not. The only question is whether that government will be achieved by conquest or consent." (Jewish Banker Paul Warburg, February 17, 1950, testifying before the U.S. Senate).

 

Warburg was testifying as an American citizen and peace advocate, not as a Zionist, a Jew or a banker. He testified in support of a congressional resolution that would have broadened the powers of the U.N. - a naive and utopian view perhaps, rather than a sinister plot of the Jewish banker conspiracy, The full testimony is here.

 

Here is the above quote in context. The quoted part is emphasized in red:

STATEMENT OF JAMES P. WARBURG OF GREENWICH, CONN.

I am James P. Warburg, of Greenwich, Conn., and am appearing as an individual.

I am aware, Mr. Chairman, of the exigencies of your crowded schedule and of the need to be brief, so as not to transgress upon your courtesy in granting me a hearing.

The past 15 years of my life have been devoted almost exclusively to studying the problem of world peace and, especially, the relation of the United States to these problems. These studies led me, 10 years ago, to the conclusion that the great question of our time is not whether or not one world can be achieved, but whether or not one world can be achieved by peaceful means.

We shall have world government, whether or not we like it. The question is only whether world government will be achieved by consent or by conquest.

Today we are faced with a divided world—its two halves glowering at each other across the iron curtain. The world's two superpowers—Russia and the United States—are entangled in the vicious circle of an arms race, which more and more preempts energies and resources sorely needed to lay the foundations of enduring peace. We are now on the road to eventual war—a war in which the conqueror will emerge well nigh indistinguishable from the vanquished.

The United States does not want this war, and most authorities agree that Russia does not want it. Indeed, why should Russia prefer the unpredictable hazards of war to a continuation of here present profitable fishing in the troubled waters of an uneasy armistice? Yet both the United States and Russia are drifting—and, with them, the entire world—toward the abyss of atomic conflict.

SUPPORT OF SENATE CONCURRENT RESOLUTION 56

Mr. Chairman, I am here to testify in favor of Senate Resolution 56, which, if concurrently enacted with the House, would make the peaceful transformation of the United Nations into a world federation the avowed aim of United States policy. The passage of this resolution seems to me the first prerequisite toward the development of an affirmative American policy which would lead us out of the valley of death and despair.


I am fully aware that the mere passage of this resolution will not solve the complex problems with which we are confronted. Our recognition of the inadequacy of the present United Nations structure, and our declared determination to strengthen that structure by Charter amendment, will not alone overcome the Russian obstacle. But it will, at long last, chart our own goal and enable us to steer a straight course toward a clearly seen objective. Moreover, it will unite us in purpose with the vast majority of the peoples of the non-Soviet world.

Until we have established this goal, we shall continue to befog and befuddle our own vision by clinging to the illusion that the present structure of the United Nations would work, if only the Russians would let it work. That has been our position to date.

Until we establish this goal, we shall continue to ask other peoples to unite with us only in the negative purpose of stopping Russia. Fear-inspired negative action makes poor cement for unity.

Once we shall have declared a positive purpose—once we shall have cemented the united will of the free peoples in a common aspiration— we shall be in a far stronger position to deal with the obstacles presented to the realization of that purpose.

 

 


Jewish Destroyers?

This quote appears at many anti-Semitic Web sites:
 

"In everything, we are destroyers--even in the instruments of destruction to which we turn for relief... We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers for ever. Nothing that you will do will meet our needs and demands. We will destroy because we need a world of our own." - Maurice Samuels, You Gentiles, page 155.
 

Samuels was an eccentric Jewish radical author The quote takes his ideas out of context:

"In everything we are destroyers – even in the instruments of destruction to which we turn for relief. The very socialism and internationalism through which our choked spirit seeks utterance, which seem to threaten your way of life, are alien to our spirit's demands and needs. Your socialists and internationalist are not serious. The charm of these movements, the attraction, such as it is, which they exercise, is only in their struggle: it is the fight which draws your gentile radicals." – pg 152-3
 

Here is the real quote. The text in bold is always omitted:

 "We Jews, we, the destroyers, will remain the destroyers for ever. Nothing that you do will meet our needs and demands. We will destroy because we need a world of our own, a God-world, which it is not in your nature to build. Beyond all temporary alliances with this or that action lies the ultimate split in nature and destiny, the enmity between the Game and God." – pg 155
 

Samuels was speaking for himself of course, and had no special relation to Zionism.


Fabricated anti-Semitic quote

The following appears at so-called "anti-Zionist" Web sites, but is ordinary antti-Semitism, a fabrication that was not aimed at Zionism. Israel did not exist in 1928 when this was concocted, so it is not "legitimate criticism" of Israeli policy.

Letter from Baruch Levy to Marx:

"The Jewish people as a whole will be its own Messiah. It will attain world dominion by the dissolution of other races, by the abolition of frontiers, the annihilation of monarchy, and by the establishment of a world republic in which the Jews will everywhere exercise the privilege of citizenship. In this "new world order" the children of Israel will furnish all the leaders without encountering opposition. The Governments of the different peoples forming the world republic will fall without difficulty into the hands of the Jews. It will then be possible for the Jewish rulers to abolish private property, and everywhere to make use of the resources of the state. Thus will the promise of the Talmud be fulfilled, in which is said that when the Messianic time is come, the Jews will have all the property of the whole world in their hands" (from `La Revue de Paris', p. 574, June 1, 1928)

Of this hoax, researchers wrote:

"Professional anti-Semites are continually discovering secret Jewish "conspiracies" with which to inflame the passions of their ignorant followers. Simple-minded people avidly accept simple-minded explanation that all of the world's troubles caused by the Jews. There is a regular business of producing forged Jewish documents, and it is very plain to any serious student that hate peddlers have scoured the earth in search of "documents" which are then placed in files, for use at appropriate times. Thus we find that a reactionary magazine, Revue De Paris, in its issue of June 1, 1928, carried a long and Prime article in French, whose translated title is "The Secret Origins of Bolshevism: Henry Heine and Karl Marx." It is a vicious, anti-Semitic article, which tells of a Jewish "conspiracy" to conquer the world and then ties this imaginary conspiracy to Communism. As part of its "proof," it quotes from an alleged letter from one, Baruch Levy, to Karl Marx, the co-founder of the modern Communist movement. Nowhere in the article is there any inkling of who Baruch Levy could possibly be, excepting that he is referred to as a Neo--Messianist (whatever that is supposed to denote). The Baruch Levy "letter" outlines a Jewish plan to take over the world. Nowhere in the writings of Karl Marx is there any mention of Baruch Levy and/or his alleged letter. In fact, one can be reasonably certain Marx would have consigned it to the incinerator, if such a letter had reached him. Revue De Paris does not state where it obtained the alleged letter. The obvious reason -that it is a fraud- can easily be deduced from the internal evidence. Its leitmotif is almost identical with the central theme of the Rabbi Rabinovich fabrication (which we have already discussed) and the fraudulent Protocols of the Elders of Zion (which we will soon examine). In other words, any sane person, who has a knowledge of history, can readily recognize the Baruch Levy letter as a palpable fraud.

Thirty-seven years later, Hal Hunt quoted the Baruch Levy letter on the front page of his hate sheet, National Chronicle of March 11, 1965, along with the Kol Nidre hoax and other fraudulent items. How did the editor of a small-circulation sheet obtain an article from a Parisian magazine and how did he obtain an English translation of this essay? The answers are obvious to anyone who does research into the propaganda techniques of the hate publications: it is a stock item, which travels from -one hate publication to another, because the members of this fraternity read and dote on each other's fulminations. The Baruch Levy hoax has appeared periodically, and will probably continue to be used until there is no longer a market for this kind of merchandise.

We asked Dr. Herbert Aptheker, Director of the American Institute for Marxist Studies, to do some additional research about the alleged letter from Baruch Levy to Karl Marx. In a letter, dated September 5, 1967, Dr. Aptheker stated:

I have examined five of the biographies of Marx . . . including those by Mehring, Ruhle, Postgate, Eastman, Lewis . . . and find no mention of anything in any way resembling the material you quote from Baruch Levy. In all my reading in Marxism ... considerable for about 33 years . . . I have never seen anything remotely like that. Let me add that I have examined the indexes of all 6 volumes . . . Volumes 27 through 32 . . . of the Marx-Engels Werke (Dietz Verlag, Berlin, 1963-1965) and find no mention of a Baruch Levy or any indication of any letter in any way similar to that you mention. These are the volumes which contain the letters . . . Briefe . . . of Marx and Engels, commencing in 1842 and going through 1870 (all so far published). I think one may therefore say great confidence that the letter is a hoax, as one would believe in any case from its contents."

Begin and the Master Race Fake Zionist Quote

This quote was fabricated. Amnon Kapeliouk's New Statesman article does not claim that Menachem Begin ever said it, but has a different fabrication instead:

"Our race is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves. Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin in a speech to the Knesset [Israeli Parliament] quoted by Amnon Kapeliouk, "Begin and the Beasts," New Statesman, June 25, 1982.


Fake Zionist Quotes- Ariel Sharon

Ariel Sharon Never Said...

I don't know something called International Principles. I vow that I'll burn every Palestinian child (that) will be born in this area. The Palestinian woman and child is more dangerous than the man, because the Palestinian child's existence infers that generations will go on, but the man causes limited danger.

This quote was supposedly from an interview with Ouze Merham. There is no such person. There was never such an interview. "Ouze" is not a Hebrew name. Miriam Sobh, a journalism student at the University of Illinois and member of an Islamic extremist group, published the quote in the Illini, the university newspaper. She  apologized in April 2003.  The quote surfaced again and was debunked by the editors of the Illini in December of 2004. After perpetrating this and other hoaxes, in 2005 Sobh graduated and was working at a Chicago affiliate of NPR. Subsequently she became editor of her own publication which she founded. Appropriately, it is called "Hijabtrendz." 

A Camera expose illuminated Sobh's brilliant career as the author of fiction:

The Sharon quote was not the only fabrication. Sobh alleged that former Israeli Chief of Staff, Raphael Eytan was quoted in the April 14, 1983 New York Times as saying: “We declare openly that the Arabs have no right to settle on even one centimeter of Eretz Israel ... Force is all they do or ever will understand. We shall use the ultimate force until the Palestinians come crawling to us on all fours.” However, a Nexis search of all Times coverage reveals that no one, not Eytan or anyone else, was ever quoted by the paper making the purported statement.

... Sobh’s recklessness in misusing sources is longstanding.  In one of her first columns for the DI,  Sobh wrote that the security barrier Israel is building will separate Palestinians from the water supply and that “they [Palestinians] will eventually be driven to starvation if this wall is completed” (“Modern wall of apartheid” Aug. 28, 2003) . She added “I think that it is sad that we can pay for genocide and act like it’s no big deal.” Her source for the “genocide” charge was an article from the site Antiwar.com. The Web site, which devotes an entire section to Israel’s alleged role in the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks, can hardly be considered credible.

In another column, the journalism student charged that Israel’s attack on the USS Liberty ship in 1967 “was one of the most horrific and deliberate attacks against the United States” (emphasis added). Her claim is primarily based on a conversation she had with Jim Ennes, a leading conspiracy proponent who has called Israel’s leaders “amoralistic murderers” who are “worse” than the Nazis. She portrayed Ennes as reliable while Sobh did not even mention the more than six government inquiries into the event. Each and every one of the probes concluded the attack was accidental and not, as she claims, “deliberate.

 

 

 

 Ariel Sharon was never interviewed by Amoz Oz

Amos Oz published a satiric interview with "Z" in his book, In the Land of Israel, in 1983, a fictitious character who made some bone chilling statements about Palestinian Arabs. A racist newspaper editor in the US "repackaged" this interview with "Z" as an interview with Ariel Sharon, but Amos Oz never interviewed Ariel Sharon, and all the juicy racist statements attributed to Sharon in that interview are inventions of Amos Oz, intended as ironic Zionist satire t against extremists.  


Ariel Sharon never said "We control America." The quote was fabricated by the Hamas.

There are a few versions of this fabrication. Here is one:

"Every time we do something you tell me America will do this and will do that . . . I want to tell you something very clear: Don't worry about American pressure on Israel. We, the Jewish people, control America, and the Americans know it." - Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, October 3, 2001, to Shimon Peres, as reported on Kol Yisrael radio.(recorded)

In some versions Sharon supposedly said "I control America." The quote was probably fabricated by the Hamas in 2001.

CAMERA’s investigation found that it started with an October 3, 2001 press release from the pro-Hamas group, IAP – the Islamic Association for Palestine, which attributed the quote to a report on “the Israeli Hebrew radio, Col [sic] Yisrael.”

Kol Yisrael political correspondent Yoni Ben-Menachem, who reports on Cabinet meetings, confirmed to CAMERA that he never made such a broadcast and that Sharon never made such a statement. Nor was it reported by any other news service.

When confronted, Geyer told one editor that she relied on two anonymous Israeli sources for the quotation. She told a second editor the quote came from an alleged Ha’aretz article which she never produced and could not be found. A subsequent editor’s note by Geyer’s United Press Syndicate claimed the quote was widely reported in the Palestinian press (i.e. the IAP, which cited the bogus Kol Yisrael source) but could not be confirmed by independent sources.

Fake Zionist Quote - Israel Koenig

Commissioner Israel Koenig NEVER WROTE:

We must use terror, assassination, intimidation, land confiscation, and the cutting of all social services to rid the Galilee of its Arab population.

That and other fake "Zionist quotes" are supposedly in  his controversial report on Israeli Arabs in Galilee.

Source given: Supposedly cited in Lustick, Ian, Arabs in the Jewish State, University of Texas Press, Texas, 1980.

Koenig didn't say it, and Lustick never wrote that he said it. This same fabricated Zionist quote is also attributed to David Ben Gurion in 1948.

Fake Zionist Quotes - Moshe Dayan

Numerous "Zionist quotes" are taken out of context. For example, consider the following which is really monstrous:

"We came to this country .... and we are establishing a Hebrew, that is a Jewish state there... Jewish villages were built in the place of Arab villages.....Nahalal arose in the place of Mahalul, Gevat -- in the place of Jibra, Sarid -- in the place of Haneifs and Kefar Yehosua -- in the place of Tell Shaman."
Moshe Dayan

Clever use of ellipses ("....") and omission of the initial sentence and context makes it seem really awful, doesn't it? It can be used by anti-Zionists to justify the idea that Zionism had the purpose of expelling Arabs violently,  and did so systematically.

What is the real Zionist quote?

"We came to this country which was already populated by Arabs and we are establishing a Hebrew, that is a Jewish state there. In considerable areas of the country  we bought the lands from the Arabs, Jewish villages were built in the  place of Arab villages. You do not know even know the names of these Arab villages, and I do not blame you, because these geography books no longer exist; not only do the books not exist, the Arab villages are not there either. Nahalal arose in the place of Mahalul, Gevat -- in the place of Jibra, Sarid -- in the place of Haneifs and Kefar Yehoshua -- in the place of Tell Shaman. There is not one place built in this country that did not have a former Arab population.
Moshe Dayan

The "Zionist quote" is from an address at the Technion in April of 1969 See http://www.camera.org/index.asp?x_context=7&x_issue=21&x_article=371 Moshe Dayan Quote Hoax Exposed  for an independent discussion of the same hoax and more information about the context.

This was the "great crime" of the Zionist movement 'exposed' by Dayan: "we bought the lands from the Arabs." Certainly it is a major war crime to buy land and only colonialist racists buy land. Isn't that true? There is not one place built in Israel that did not have a former Arab population - some time in history. And there is not one place that did not have a former Jewish population either.

Fake Zionist Quotes - Chaim Weizmann

And here is another in the series of fake Zionist quotes:

Palestine will be as Jewish as England is English - (Chaim Weizmann - quoted in many anti-Zionist Web pages such as www. scoop.co.nz/stories/HL0311/S00121.htm)

What is the real Zionist quote?

"Mr. Lansing, the American Secretary of State, called me over and asked me: 'What do you mean by a Jewish National Home?' That opened the door to us, and Mr. Lansing's intervention rendered us a very great service. I defined the Jewish national home to mean the creation of an administration which would arise out of the national conditions of the country -- always safeguarding the interests of non-Jews of the country -- with the hope that by Jewish immigration Palestine would ultimately become as Jewish as England is English. (Chaim Weizmann - Trial and Error Page 305)

"always safeguarding the interests of non-Jews of the country" -  is omitted from the Zionist quote, and the actual Zionist quote is distorted. Zionism wanted to achieve a democratic Jewish state through immigration, while safeguarding the rights of Arab inhabitants. That was another "crime" of the Zionists, wanting to immigrate to the land of Israel.
