A critic of an article I wrote documenting the Jewish involvement in instigating World War II said that I did not adequately document the involvement of British Jews in influencing Great Britain to enter into the war. This article provides additional information showing that British Jews were instrumental in influencing Britain to enter into World War II.
By the end of 1935, Winston Churchill had amassed substantial debts that he could not pay off. Churchill needed all the financial aid he could get. The Anti-Nazi Council, later known as The Focus in response to Churchill’s wishes for a less negative title, came to Churchill’s rescue and ensured his political and financial survival. British historian Martin Gilbert stated that on November 13, 1936, Churchill wrote to his son Randolph to explain why he had helped launch the Anti-Nazi League. Churchill wrote that the basis of the Anti-Nazi League “is of course Jewish resentment at their abominable persecution. But we are now taking broader ground rather on the lines of my Paris speech.”
British historian Paul Addison wrote that The Focus was a conspiracy to change the course of British foreign policy, with Churchill as its chief propagandist. In the spring of 1936, with the assistance of The Focus, Churchill began to call for Britain to adopt a foreign policy based on collective security under the League of Nations. By implication, this would include the Soviet Union, which had joined the League of Nations in 1934. Although Churchill had been highly critical of the Soviet Union as recently as 1931, by 1933, Churchill’s anti-communism was subordinated to his conviction that National Socialist Germany was the greater danger to Britain.
