WE WILL REMEMBER THEM
Supporters of the Forgotten British Heroes Campaign (FBHC) gathered at the side of St Martin’s-in-the-Fields Church in Trafalgar Square, London, on Saturday 30th August to commemorate the bombing of the British Colonies Club by Zionist terrorists on 7th March 1947. A wreath was placed on the railings at the site where club once stood, which is next door to the church.
The bomb was placed by Robert Misrahi a Turkish-Jew who was a member of the Paris branch of a fanatical Zionist terrorist organisation called the Lehi, otherwise known as the “Stern Gang”.
Misrahi entered the building wearing a coat which had extensive padding. That padding was in fact gelignite. Misrahi calmly hung the coat behind a chair, initiated the timer, and walked out.
There was a huge explosion which seriously injured numerous people and did extensive damage to the building. It is a miracle that nobody was killed.
The Zionist propaganda network proclaimed this cowardly act as “a great blow against a British military establishment”.
In fact the British Colonies Club was a rest and relaxation centre for servicemen from British Commonwealth countries. When the bomb went off members were playing billiards, cards, darts and enjoying a drink.
This FBHC wreath-laying campaign also commemorated the murder by Zionist terrorists of:
- Lord Moyne, Secretary of State for the Colonies, and his driver Cpl Fuller, on 6th November 1944, in Cairo, Egypt.
They were shot dead in the car in which they were travelling. It was a gangster-style ‘hit’. The gunmen were members of the Lehi, which Misrahi would come to join.
The Lehi was formed as a breakaway from the Irgun. Lehi members believed that Zionist militants should murder British servicemen and government officials even though the British nation was engaged in a war against Nazi Germany. Irgun members believed that the murder of British personnel should commence only after the war against Germany had concluded.
- British Army sergeants, Mervyn Paice and Clifford Martin, on or about 30th August 1947, near Nethanya, Palestine.
The two 20-year-olds were kidnapped whilst off-duty by the Zionist terrorist group known as the Irgun. When two Irgun terrorists were hanged after having been tried and convicted of murders committed during an attack on Acre prison, Sgts Paice and Martin were hanged in revenge.
THE TORTURE AND MURDER
OF THE TWO SERGEANTS
The murders of Sgts Paice and Martin were described on the British Forces in Palestine website ( <http://www.britishforcesinpalestine.org/attacks/sergeants.html> ) as follows:
“At 00.45 on 12 July Martin and Paice were bludgeoned, chloroformed and pushed into a car. Weinberg (the Jewish friend they were with) was bound and then dumped by the side of the road. At 0400 he freed himself and gave the alarm. Martin and Paice had, meanwhile, been entombed in a cell of twelve square feet and less than six feet high [FBHC emphasis]. It had been dug underneath a diamond factory floor, with a thick layer of sand on top.
“ ‘The cell was soundproofed, airtight and with only a small, insulated entrance hatch. Amihai Faglin (also known as ‘Gidi’ and later made Israeli government terrorist adviser), the Irgun operations chief, was in charge. He allotted the minimum needs to keep the kidnapped sergeants alive: some food, two oxygen cylinders which they were instructed to regulate in order to survive, and a canvas bucket. There was no light, sound, or fresh air for seventeen, terrorful, death-presaging days’.” [A Captain’s Mandate, Philip Brutton.]
“It goes on:
“Nethanya was cordoned and the search (Operation Tiger) began which included Haganah members. Although a few other terrorists were caught, the search was unsuccessful thanks to the silence of the Jewish community. For reasons unknown the diamond factory was not searched.
“The murders went ahead.
“ ‘On the following day Amihai Paglin drove to Nethanya with his accomplices. The first sergeant was extracted. A hood was placed over his head. He was bound and placed on a chair. A rope was strung round his neck. He asked if they were going to kill him. Could he leave a message? There was no time. The chair was kicked from under him. He was slowly throttled; the rope compressed his windpipe. After fifteen minutes he was dead’. [A Captain’s Mandate, Philip Brutton]
“The second sergeant was murdered in the same manner half an hour later.
“Their hooded and hanging bodies were found on 31st July 1947 after a tip off. They had been held in the underground space for almost three weeks.
“When Capt Galetti of 23rd Field Company, RE, cut them down he was temporarily blinded when a mine inside one of the bodies exploded. The ground had been checked for mines but not the bodies themselves.
“Eric Farthing, 4th/7th Dragoon Guards was involved in the search and remembers the murders well. ( <http://www.britishforcesinpalestine.org/attacks/sergeants_ericfarthing.html.> )”
TERRORIST BOMBER AND MURDERER
ROBERT MISRAHI LIVES IN PARIS
A short meeting was held during the course of the wreath-laying ceremony during which speeches were delivered by officials of the FBHC: Martin Webster, the campaign’s Chairman, Peter Rushton, its Research Officer and Jeremy Turner, its Treasurer.
These speakers drew attention to the fact that Robert Misrahi, the man who planted the bomb in the British Colonies Club, is still alive and at liberty in Paris. He flaunts the title of ‘Emeritus Professor of Ethical Philosophy at the University of the Sorbonne, Paris’.
The FBHC is currently in communication with senior anti-terrorist officers at Scotland Yard with a view to the authorities instigating proceedings against Misrahi and securing his extradition to the United Kingdom to face charges not just in respect of the British Colonies Club bombing but the murder on 6th May 1948 of Rex Farran, brother of Captain Roy Farran of the SAS, a leading figure in the fight against Zionist terrorism.
The speakers stressed that the scourge of terrorism which we face today can be attributed to fanatical elements within Zionist-Jewry who incubated vicious organisations such as the Irgun and the Lehi and who nurtured fanatical murderers such as Robert Misrahi. Indeed, those organisations and individuals can be described as the founders of modern-day terrorism which emanates from the Middle East.
During this meeting it was noteworthy that numerous people — many of them tourists visiting Trafalgar Square — stopped to listen to what the campaign’s spokesmen were saying and many indicated strong agreement with what they heard and filmed the proceedings. The fluttering Union Jack and St George’s flags and the vivid placards proved very eye-catching.
After the ceremony at Trafalgar Square was over FBHC supporters moved to a central London hotel where they heard speakers develop the ideas they had touch on earlier in the afternoon. A full record of the meeting is posted here.
