Today is Israel’s 66th Birthday. Happy Birthday to the Jewish State, and may it last forever against its Islamic terrorist neighbors from without and their supporters from within. On this occasion of Israel’s birthday, I wanted to share with you a confidential document I exclusively obtained and which can now be made public. The letter, written in 1948 by the late Rudolf G. Sonneborn (of Blessed Memory), an American patriot and proud Jew (and oil exec and businessman), details the work of the Materials for Palestine, Inc. a/k/a “The Sonneborn Institute”–a mysterious and secret network of mostly Americans (and some others) who worked to smuggle badly needed materials to the Jewish people who were fighting to establish a Jewish state in Israel. (In those days, “Palestinians” had names like David and Saul, and they were all Jews.) This heroic group was not exclusively Jewish, and, in fact, worked with gentile Americans, such as Frank Sinatra (whose purported son is anti-Israel freak Ronan Farrow), to get badly needed arms to the Haganah, the precursor to the Israeli Army. But one man, Sonneborn, is truly the unsung hero who, more than any other one person in America (and perhaps the world) helped Israel to become a state in the face of arms embargoes (including an American one) and the like. The group also helped smuggle tens of thousands of Jews “illegally” from the ashes of the Holocaust in Europe to Israel, in defiance of the pan-Arabist British.
Rudolf Sonneborn: Patriotic American, Proud Jew, Courageous Unsung Hero for Israel
I post Sonneborn’s confidential letter, below, which was sent to only a very few supporters who were sworn to secrecy. Note that the full details of what happened and how this brave group of Americans helped Israel are in the book, “The Pledge,” by Leonard Slater. If you have any interest in Israel whatsoever, the book is must reading and would make a great movie (one that Hollywood would never make today). You should also consider reading “The Time Has Come: The Role of Rudolf Sonneborn as Catalyst for Israel,” by Charles B. Sonneborn. It should be noted that Sonneborn’s group was separate and apart from the organized Jewish community, which had more courage at that time than it has today when it comes to helping the Jewish people and fighting the forces of Islamic oppression, but still not enough courage. (To read the letter, use the buttons below to enlarge it.)
