Palmerston launches Young Turks
to permanently control Middle East

by Joseph Brewda

Chorus: It is clear that the B'nai B'rith is an abject tool of British
intelligence, run and directed to serve the interests of British
imperial policy, and not the interests of Jews, nor even of B'nai
B'rith members. The one peculiarity of B'nai B'rith in comparison to
the other organizations launched by Palmerston and his three stooges,
is that B'nai B'rith will be used for a wider variety of tasks in
various countries and epochs. Therefore, the B'nai B'rith will be more
permanent in its continuous organization than its Mazzinian
counterparts, among which it stands out as the most specialized.

At the end of this century, one of the tasks assigned to the B'nai
B'rith will be to direct, with the help of other Mazzinian agents, the
dismemberment and partition of the Ottoman Empire. This is the state
the British will call "the sick man of Europe." Historically, the
Ottoman Empire offers surprising tolerance to its ethnic
minorities. In order to blow up the empire, that will have to be
changed into brutal racial oppression on the Mazzini model.

In 1862, during the time of the American Civil War, Mazzini will call
on all his agents anywhere near Russia to foment revolt as a way of
causing trouble for Alexander II. A bit later, with the help of Young
Poland, Mazzini will start a Young Ottoman movement out of an Adam
Smith translation project in Paris. In 1876, the Young Ottomans will
briefly seize power in Constantinople. They will end a debt
moratorium, pay off the British, declare free trade, and bring in
Anglo-French bankers. They will be quickly overthrown; but the same
network will soon make a comeback as the Young Turks, whose rule will
finally destroy the Ottoman Empire.

In 1908, the Committee for Union and Progress, better known as the
Young Turks, carried out a military coup, overthrew the sultan, and
took power inthe Ottoman Turkish empire. Once in power, they carried
out a racist campaign of suppressing all non-Turkish
minorities. Within four years, their anti-minority campaigns provoked
the Balkan wars of 1912-13, among Turkey, Greece, Bulgaria, and
Serbia. By 1914, these wars had triggered World War I, with Turkey
becoming an ally of Germany.

Within seven years of coming into power, the Young Turks destroyed the
Ottoman Empire. British intelligence had manipulated every nationalist
group in the Empire, both the Young Turks, and their opponents.

When the Young Turks took power, the Ottoman Empire still included
Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Palestine, and the Arabian Peninsula. The empire
still included much of the Balkans: half of Greece, half of Bulgaria,
half of Serbia, and all of Albania. Its land area was much bigger than
present-day Turkey.

Although most of the population of the Ottoman empire were Turks,
there were also large numbers of Slavs, Greeks, Arabs, Armenians, and
Kurds. The Ottoman empire was a multi-ethnic empire, as were the
nearby Austrian and Russian empires.

The Young Turks came to power waving the banner of democracy, but they
soon picked up the banner of pan-Turkism. The idea was to form a state
that included all the Turkic peoples of Asia. Since half of these
people lived in Russia, this policy meant a collision with Russia.

But pan-Turkism was not created by the Young Turks or even in
Turkey. It was first called for in the 1860s by a Hungarian Zionist
named Arminius Vambery, who had become an adviser to the sultan, but
who secretly worked for Lord Palmerston and the British Foreign
Office. Vambery later tried to broker a deal between the Zionist
leader Theodor Herzl and the sultan, over the creation of Israel.

The Young Turks also raised the banner of a pan-Islamic state. The
idea was to bring all the Muslim peoples of the world into one empire,
whether or not they were Turkish. This was another goal that meant
conflict with Russia.

This idea was also not created by the Young Turks or in Turkey. It was
first called for in the 1870s by an English nobleman named Wilfred
Blunt, whose family had created the Bank of England. Blunt was a top
British intelligence official who advocated using Islam to destroy
Russia. Blunt's family later patronized the British KGB spy "Kim"

While the Young Turks were pushing the pan-Turkic and pan-Islamic
movements, the British were also boosting all the anti-Turkish
independence movements within the empire. They were supporting Arab
nationalism, led by Lawrence of Arabia. They were supporting Serbian
nationalism, led by the British agent Seton-Watson; Albanian
nationalism, led by Lady Dunham; and Bulgarian nationalism, led by
Noel Buxton. All of these peoples wanted to break free from the
Ottoman Empire; but they also claimed the land of their neighbors.

For example, the British supported the idea of carving a "Greater
Armenia" out of Turkey, Iran, and Russia. This "Greater Armenia" had
no possibility of existing. None of the Great Powers, including
Britain, really wanted it. The Kurds, who lived in the same area,
didn't want it. But the British told the Armenians they supported
their plans.

At the same time, the British were also telling the Kurds they
supported the idea of "Greater Kurdistan." As the map shows, the
proposed territories of "Greater Kurdistan" and "Greater Armenia" were
almost identical.

In 1915, during World War I, the Kurds killed about 1 million
Armenians. The Young Turks, who had been put in power by the British,
used the Kurds (who thought they had the support of the British) to
slaughter the Armenians (who also thought they had the support of the
British). The British then used this genocide as a justification for
trying to eliminate Turkey.

In fact, the next year, the British and French got together to plan
the division of the Ottoman Empire between themselves. According to
the plan, which only partially worked, Turkey itself would be reduced
to a tiny area on theBlack Sea. The rest of the empire would go to
Britain and France.

B'nai B'rith and the Young Turks But who were these "Young Turks," who
so efficiently destroyed the empire?

The founder of the Young Turks was an Italian B'nai B'rith official
named Emmanuel Carasso. Carasso set up the Young Turk secret society
in the 1890sin Salonika, then part of Turkey, and now part of
Greece. Carasso was also the grand master of an Italian masonic lodge
there, called "Macedonia Resurrected." The lodge was the headquarters
of the Young Turks, and all the top Young Turk leadership were

The Italian masonic lodges in the Ottoman Empire had been set up by a
follower of Giuseppe Mazzini named Emmanuel Veneziano, who was also a
leader of B'nai B'rith's European affiliate, the Universal Israelite

During the Young Turk regime, Carasso continued to play a leading
role. He met with the sultan, to tell him that he was overthrown. He
was in charge of putting the sultan under house arrest. He ran the
Young Turk intelligence network in the Balkans. And he was in charge
of all food supplies in the empire during World War I.

Another important area was the press. While in power, the Young Turks
ran several newspapers, including The Young Turk, whose editor was
none other than the Russian Zionist leader Vladimir
Jabotinsky. Jabotinsky had been educated as a young man in Italy. He
later described Mazzini's ideas as the basis for the Zionist movement.

Jabotinsky arrived in Turkey shortly after the Young Turks seized
power, to take over the paper. The paper was owned by a member of the
Turkish cabinet, but it was funded by the Russian Zionist federation,
and managed by B'nai B'rith. The editorial policy of the paper was
overseen by a Dutch Zionist named Jacob Kann, who was the personal
banker of the king and queen of the Netherlands.

Jabotinsky later created the most anti-Arab of all the Zionist
organizations, the Irgun. His followers in Israel today are the ones
most violently opposed to the Peres-Arafat peace accords.

Another associate of Carasso was Alexander Helphand, better known as
Parvus, the financier of the 1905 and 1917 Russian
revolutions. Shortly after 1905, Parvus moved to Turkey, where he
became the economics editor of another Young Turk newspaper called The
Turkish Homeland. Parvus became a business partner of Carasso in the
grain trade, and an arms supplier to the Turkish army during the
Balkan wars. He later returned to Europe, to arrange the secret train
that took Lenin back to Russia, in 1917.

Of course, there were also some Turks who helped lead the Young Turk
movement. For example, Talaat Pasha. Talaat was the interior minister
and dictator of the regime during World War I. He had been a member of
Carasso's Italian masonic lodge in Salonika. One year prior to the
1908 coup, Talaat became the grand master of the Scottish Rite Masons
in the Ottoman Empire. If you go to the Scottish Rite headquarters in
Washington, D.C., you can find that most of the Young Turk leaders
were officials in the Scottish Rite.

But who founded the Scottish Rite in Turkey? One of the founders was
the grand master of the Scottish Rite in France, Adolph Cremieux, who
also happened to be the head of the B'nai B'rith's European
affiliate. Cremieux had been a leader of Mazzini's Young France, and
helped put the British stooge Napoleon III into power.

The British controller: Aubrey Herbert You can find the story of the
Young Turks in the B'nai B'rith and Scottish Rite archives, but you
cannot find it in history books. The best public account is found in
the novel Greenmantle, whose hero is a British spy who led the Young
Turks. Carasso appears in the novel under the name Carusso. The
author, John Buchan, who was a British intelligence official in World
War I, later identified the novel's hero as Aubrey Herbert.

In real life, Herbert was from one of the most powerful noble families
in England. The family held no fewer than four earldoms. His repeated
contact with Carasso and other Young Turk leaders is a matter of
public record. Herbert's grandfather had been a patron of Mazzini and
died leading revolutionary mobs in Italy in 1848. His father was in
charge of British Masonry in the 1880s and 1890s. His uncle was the
British ambassador to the United States. During World War I, Herbert
was the top British spymaster in the Middle East. Lawrence of Arabia
later identified Herbert as having been, at one time, the head of the
Young Turks.

The U.S. State Department also played a role in the conspiracy. From
1890 through World War I, there were three U.S. ambassadors to Turkey:
Oscar Straus, Abraham Elkin, and Henry Morgenthau. All three were
friends of Simon Wolf. And all three were officials of B'nai B'rith.
