Prince Charles was fiercely criticised last night after it emerged he once urged the US to ‘take on the Jewish lobby’ – and blamed ‘the influx of foreign Jews’ for causing unrest in the Middle East. The Mail on Sunday can reveal the incendiary comments are contained in a letter in which the Prince lays bare his thoughts on one of the world’s most bloody disputes. Writing to his close friend Laurens van der Post in 1986, the Prince makes a startling assessment of the Arab-Israeli conflict. He argues it was the exodus of European Jews in the middle of the last century that ‘helped to cause the great problems’.

WALLACE KLICK RESPONDED TO THE ARTICLE
"What a lot of sophistry! There is no such thing as "Anti-semitism". By far the largest component of Jewry is Ashkenazic which is not Semitic in origin. Sephardic Jews are Semitic but very few in number. The half-billion Arabic peoples are the overwhelming majority of Semites. Even the article in the British Encyclopedia, by a Jewish author, calls the term is a misnomer.
"Anti-semitism" is a political term invented as a semantic weapon in political warfare to discredit anyone critical of anything remotely "Jewish". It has been used in the most scurrilous manner to bully critics, and by power-seeking politicians. Anyone unaware of the decisive power of what is known as the "Lobby" in America is politically uneducated.
The very recently concocted term "Judaeo-Christian" is a contradiction in terms. As Jewish scholars have made entirely clear, Judaism is Pharisaism--which is the implacable enemy of everything Christian, Jesus having condemned the Pharisees beyond redemption."
