The Hidden Hand of the Rothschild Banking Family

The Rothschild is one of the most famous families in the entire world who is best known for their extraordinary wealth. The family descends from a man named Mayer Amschel Rothschild who was a member of the court of a very wealthy German family in the Free City of Frankfurt. This first Rothschild would go on to establish his own banking business in the 1760s.
Since that time, the Rothschild family’s banking industry has grown and become one of the most powerful and influential in the world. At the same time, the political influence of the family has also increased significantly, and few people are aware of just how much this one family has guided the process of modern world events.
The Rothschild family’s role in founding the state of Israel
For instance, Walter Rothschild, who had become a high-ranking member of the aristocratic gentry in England established the Zionist Federation of Great Britain and Ireland. This group became such an effective pressure group that the famous Balfour Declaration, announcing the intention to allow Palestine to be used to build the state of Israel, was made directly to him.
The Balfour Declaration read; “His Majesty’s government view with favors the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavors to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.”
The original document, which can be viewed at the British Museum, set in process the chain of events that would culminate in the founding of the Jewish state in Israel. After the Second World War, Zionist sympathies were at an all-time high among members of the Jewish community who believed that a specified Jewish homeland could protect them from the persecution they endured under Hitler’s Reich and the viciously anti-Semitic regime of Josef Stalin in the Soviet Union. And, as this document shows, the Rothschild family were at the centre of it all.
