Helga’s Reich And The Mufti Of Jerusalem:
In the wake of Trump’s decision to drop out of the Iran Nuclear Dea you have something interesting developments. You say, “The UK is basically opposed to almost all of Israel’s policies and is sympathetic to the Palestinians.” Well, this sounds very interesting. Considering that Britain was the author of the Balfour Declaration about Israel returning to its homeland one hundred years ago right after World War 1, why do you find yourself in such an impasse? Is this what your membership in the EU, dominated by Germany, has done to your country???
Germany always preferred the Islamic types and wanted to ally itself with them. During WW1, Germany allied itself with the Ottoman Turks as you know very well. They wanted to build a Berlin to Baghdad Railway. Hitler was friends with the Mufti of Jerusalem, who was a Palestinian. At first Hitler wanted to send some of the Jews who were being sent out of Germany back to Israel, but the Mufti protested and said he didn’t want them in Jerusalem.
Why does England, on the eve of Brexit, want to ally itself with the Nazis against the Jews? Palestinians are almost synonymous with terrorists themselves as a group. Israel is the only democracy in the Middle East.
In the historical thriller Helga’s Reich, one of the Edward Ware Thrillers at War Series, the Mufti of Jerusalem actually kidnaps Edward. He tries to force him to give up the Lawrence maps, key to world domination. Hitler wants them. So does Helga.
Helga von Wessel, Hitler’s chiefest spy, has killed Edward’s mother in a bombing raid in 1940. She has almost murdered his wife and destroyed his marriage. She has helped Hitler kidnap his only daughter, Thomasina. Now she stands in the way of Edward and Britain winning the war. Does Edward have what it takes to kill her off before this vamp who is the mother of his illegitimate son, Leopold, ruins his career and takes the Lawrence maps which he is sworn to protect? The battle between Edward and Helga plays itself out against the backdrop of World War 2.

Trump and Titus: 2000 Years of the Jews in Europe:
Yesterday when Trump was making a speech on the White House steps about his tax cut and congressmen and senators were standing on the stairs, it was reminiscent of the days of ancient Rome when generals had triumphs. In particular I am thinking of the famous triumph of Titus who was then the son of the Emperor Vespasian in the year 70 BC. He defeated the Jews in the First Jewish Roman War and sent them off into the Diaspora from which they did not return until after World War 2 almost two thousand years later. The famous Titus’s Arch which still stands in Rome today depicts this event.
Today the UN took a vote whether to condemn the US for recognizing Jerusalem as Israel’s capital. All of the membership of the EU, the western European countries, voted to condemn the US and Israel. Western Europe is showing its long, long tradition of anti-Semitism. Japan also voted to condemn showing that it was once part of the Axis Powers in World War 2, allied with the Nazis and Hitler.
America is trying to right the historic wrong that has gone on for two thousand years. Not that the Diaspora did not contribute greatly to Jewish civilization in making them the democratic country they are now today. But it is time to let them go home again after two thousand years.
The great mystery in the vote was England. All the other Anglo countries either voted with the US or abstained. But England voted to condemn the resolution to make Jerusalem the capital of Israel and to have the US put its embassy there. Yet it was England who promulgated the Balfour Declaration one hundred years ago, starting the movement that ended up creating the modern state of Israel. England has been in decline for a century from the power it once was, but this shows that it is slipping into the orbit of Germany and other continental countries and losing its own ideals that once made it great.
But at least Trumps stands on the White House steps looking like a Roman of old. Now that the Jews are no longer fractious and rebellious the way they were two thousand years ago, he is saying to go home again.
Cheops Books LLC will soon publish an historical thriller involving Titus. It is called Pliny: A Novel. The encyclopedia writer Pliny was a friend of the Emperor Titus and his father Vespasian.
