British Sir Martin Gilbert died on February 3, 2015 at the age 79. He was knighted for projecting British war-time prime minister Sir Winston Churchill as some sort of Western “Saint” in a 24-volume (25,000 pages) Churchill’s biography for supported the World Zionist movement agenda in the Middle East.
Martin Gilbert was born in London on October 25, 1936 into a Russian Zionist Jewish family. A self-claimed “historian” he authored nearly 80 books on Jewish-Muslim relations as seen through the eyes of a racist Zionist Jews. In Ishamael’s House: A History of Jews in Muslim Lands, Gilbert claims that Jews were the most oppressed people under Islamic rule since the Prophet Muhammad (pbuh) established the first Islamic City State in Madina in 624 CE.
Gilbert’s lies about Islamic history has been debunked by Jewish Orientalist Dr. Bernard Lewis, Israeli president Ephraim Katzir (1973-78), Rabbi Allen S. Maller, Israeli Rabbi Baruch Efrati, former UNHRC special envoy Richard Falk, to name a few.
Gilbert in his several other books claims that Jews were expelled from Muslim lands after the creation of state of Israel. A Zionist narrative which has been debunked by Jewish sources that Jews left Iraq, Morocco, Tunisia, Syria, Albania, Uzbekistan, Yemen, etc. as result of Zionist terrorism.
Gilbert, dedicated his entire “historian” life in the service of Holocaust, which a prominent Zionist Jew political activist, David Cole, has recently claimed, is based on fakes, fraud and forgeries. The non-Jewish genocides, such as, American, Australian and New Zealand Natives, Christian and Muslims under Soviet/Jewish regime, Ukrainian Christians, German Christians, Armenians, Bengalis under British occupation, Muslims during partition of British India, Iraqi Muslims and Christians under the US-UK occupation, never bothered Gilbert’s Jewish conscience.
Australian academic, Dr. Gideon Polya has criticized Sir Martin Gilbert for intentionally ignoring or minimizing the Bengali Holocaust. Dr. Polya wrote:
It is remarkable then that Sir Martin Gilbert, the world’s top expert on Churchill, should have not included in 2 of his key books on Churchill any mention of Churchill’s WW2 Bengali Holocaust – a holocaust greater in terms of victims (6-7 million dead) than the WW2 Jewish Holocaust (5-6 million dead, with 1 in 6 dying from deprivation, according to Martin Gilbert. Thus, to the best of my ascertainment, there is no mention of Churchill’s WW2 Bengal Famine atrocity in the following books by Martin Gilbert about Churchill, namely In Search of Churchill. A historians Journey and Churchill. A Life. Just as Winston Churchill totally ignored the Bengali Holocaust (and the 6-7 million people he deliberately murdered) in his 6-volume work The Second World War for which in part he got the 1953 Nobel Prize for Literature. Professor Sir Martin Gilbert also ignored the Bengali Holocaust in his 2 definitive histories of Winston Churchill. Just imagine a biography of Adolph Hitler that made no mention of the WW2 Jewish Holocaust or indeed of his other atrocities, most notably the 30 million Slavs, Jews and Gypsies killed by the Nazis in WW2.
For being a long-time Zionist Hasbara historian, Gilbert received an honorary doctoral degree (PhD) from Israel’s Ben-Gurion University in 2011. The University citation read: The BGU acknowledges Sir Martin Gilbert in deep appreciation of a loyal friend of the State of Israel, who has provided an enduring voice for those whose stories would otherwise not have been told.
In his speech at the ceremony, Gilbert vigorously rejected calls for an academic boycott of Israeli universities.
The world of academia knows no borders and rises above petty quarrels. Let universities be a forum for discussion, a place for harmony not hatred, said Gilbert.
