  1. Why Haile? Why not Sergey or Pierre? Is it because Ethiopians are considered to be the “least” Jew?

  2. His Imperial Majesty was the Son of David and Solomon and a large supporter of Zionism. His inner guard who helped him defeat the fascists in 1941 were all Jewish Zionist soldiers. This propaganda is simply false. Brought to you by the Muslim Zionist Organization:

  3. Haile Selassie was indeed helped by Zionist BRITISH soldiers stationed in Palestine. Haile Selassie never approved the creation of the Zionist state of Israel in 1948. Ethiopia abstained from the UN vote.

    Interesting fact

    The Betar Naval Academy was a Jewish naval training school established in Civitavecchia, Italy in 1934 by the Revisionist Zionist movement under the direction of Ze’ev Jabotinsky, with the agreement of Benito Mussolini. The titular head of the Academy was the Italian maritime scientist Nicola Fusco but Betar leader Jeremiah Halpern ran the School and was its driving force. The Academy trained cadets from all over Europe, Palestine and South Africa and produced some of the future commanders of the Israeli Navy.
    Although the Revisionists were keen to ensure that trainees avoided local Fascist politics the cadets did express public support for Benito Mussolini’s regime, as Halpern later detailed in his book History of Hebrew Seamanship. Cadets marched alongside Italian soldiers in support of the Second Italo–Abyssinian War and collected metal scraps for the Italian weapons industry. They “felt as if they were living the true Beitarist life in an atmosphere of herosim, militarism, and nationalistic pride.”
    The Academy closed in 1938.
