Video Report: Forgotten British Heroes remembered at London events

Scarcely a day goes by without some media commemoration of recent British military history, by which Britons are asked to remember the carnage of the First World War trenches, the nightmare of Japanese POW camps, or more recent heroism of the wounded left on Afghanistan’s plains.
One military campaign is excluded from this roll of honour, erased from the history books. This was Britain’s first “war on terror” in the Middle East from 1945 to 1948, where our terrorist enemies were the three paramilitary arms of Zionist Jewry – Haganah, Irgun and the Stern Gang.


The brunt of this offensive was borne in Palestine by British conscripts, many too young to have served in the Second World War that had just ended, others veterans of that European conflict where they had fought to protect the very Jews whose bullets and bombs were now aimed at them. Palestine had been ruled by British Mandate authorities since the defeat of the Ottoman Empire in the First World War some thirty years earlier.
But during the last two years before the creation of the state of Israel in 1948, Zionism’s terrorist godfathers had extended their war to the streets of London. In April 1947 a huge bomb was left inside the Colonial Office in Whitehall. It failed due to a faulty timer: had it exploded the bomb would have caused devastation in central London on a similar scale to the Irgun’s bombing of the King David Hotel in 1946, where almost a hundred were killed and many more injured.


In March 1947 another member of the same Stern Gang unit succeeded in bombing a central London target. His commander proudly boasted of striking at the heart of the British Empire and even recent Jewish authors have described the target as “a gentlemen’s club …frequented by the staff of the Colonial Office.” It was nothing of the kind. The British Colonies Club, located at the corner of Trafalgar Square adjacent to the Church of St Martin in the Fields, was a welfare facility for colonial servicemen, many of them non-white. It was here that a young French Jew packed the shoulders of his overcoat with gelignite before making his escape: the resulting explosion wrecked the club, blew out the church windows and left several injuries.


On Saturday 1st August a group of British nationalists including H&D‘s assistant editor Peter Rushton, film maker Lady Michèle Renouf, and London Forum organiser Jez Turner laid a wreath at the Trafalgar Square site. A large crowed of tourists and passers-by watched in respectful silence, as some forty British Nationalists and patriots participated in the moving ceremony organised by a committee including former NF national organiser Martin Webster and former BNP national organiser Richard Edmonds, now back with the NF. Afterwards they were among the speakers at a well-attended meeting in a Kensington hotel.
