to allow them to have a
king. When Samuel finally
yielded to their persistent
demands, he warned them
that kings only bring war
and corruption.
It was these argunients
from the story of Israel that,
'Thomas Paine used to argue
his case for independence
and the American public
was greatly swayed by this
Zionist argument.
And when the Continen-
tal Congress finally decided
on independence, the Lib-
erty Bell rang out in Phila-
delphia and .here again we
see the Israel influence. The
words inscribed on the Lib-
erty Bell, "Proclaim liberty
to all the land and the in-
habitants thereof," were
copied from those sounded
in Israel when the shofar
was blown announcing the
year of jubilee.

that — something even
showing stronger the Zion-
ist influence. Ben Franklin
arose and proposed in Con-
gress that the seal of the
newborn United States be
an engraving of the Israe-
lites fleeing from the Egyp-
tians.
The UN, no doubt,
would point out that
Franklin's Hebrew name,
Ben, itself showed the
Zionist influence.

It would see the. same
Zionist influence in the
names of many of the Revo-
lutionary leaders. The man
who commanded the Ameri-
cans .at Bunker. Hill was
named Israel Putnam. In
Philadelphia, one revolu-
tionary patriot was named
Israel Israel. Both of his
names were Israel and
Adarna, "the father of the
Revolution," his first name
was Samuel. He was the
Boston Tea Party man. It
would he said, no doubt,
that the Boston Tea Party

was just a- Zionist conspir-
acy. They were practicing to
do the same thing later with
oil. ,
And George Washington
— didn't Ben Franklin call
him "the Joshua" of Amer-
ica.
And the worst Zionist of
all was. Thomas Jefferson,
the man who wrote, "All
men are created equal." If
that is so, then the Jews also
have a right to have a state
of their own, seeing that the-
Arabs have more than 20
states.
Ann John Adams was a
self-declared Zionist. The
man who led the fight to
independence in Congress,
in a letter to Mordecai Man-: -
uel Noah urged the restora-
tion of the Jewigh State.
