Prince Charles: Zionism To Blame For Middle East Crisis

Fact checked
Prince Charles says Israel is to blame for Middle East problems

Prince Charles has blamed Zionism for the woes of the Middle East, claiming the Arab-Israeli conflict can be traced back to the creation of Israel. 

In a newly released letter dating back to 1986, Prince Charles wrote that he blamed the “influx of foreign, European Jews” for aggravating the Arab-Israeli conflict, voicing hope that an American president would one day have the “courage to stand up to the Jewish lobby”. reports: “I now appreciate that Arabs and Jews were all a Semitic people originally,” the then 38-year-old Prince of Wales wrote in his letter, adding, that “it is the influx of foreign, European Jews (especially from Poland, they say) which has helped to cause great problems” in the Middle East. “I know there are so many complex issues, but how can there ever be an end to terrorism unless the causes are eliminated?” he questioned.

“Surely some US president has to have the courage to stand up and take on the Jewish lobby in the US? I must be naive, I suppose!” he concludes. The Editor of the Jewish Chronicle, Stephen Pollard, described Charles’ comments “both shocking and entirely predictable.”

“To me, the ‘Jewish lobby’ is one of the anti-Semitic themes that have endured for centuries. It is this myth there are these very powerful Jews who control foreign policy or the media or banks or whatever… That [the comments] come from the heir to the throne is unsettling, to put it mildly,” he told the Daily Mail.

A Clarence House spokesperson said the thoughts, expressed in the 1986 letter, were actually “not The Prince’s own views.”

“The letter clearly states these were not the Prince’s own thinking on Arab-Israeli affairs, but represented the opinions of some of those he met during his visit which he was keen to interrogate,” the statement said.

It added that Prince Charles was simply “sharing the arguments in private correspondence,” in a bid “to improve his understanding of what he has always recognized is a deeply complex issue.”


  1. What makes England such a rightchous country – it’s monarchy destroyed many countries eg South Africa, India …. and are now being destroyed

  2. charles KNOWS his family helped set up the zionist murders and stealers of isareli. He and all his family along with the zionist should all be hanging by piano wire on a piece of very very very slow melting ice.

  3. He is wrong. Did you know that when the Brits pulled out of the newly created Isreal in ’48, they took every firearm with them and left the Jews defenseless. They were hoping the Muslims would wipe them off the face of the earth. The British monarch is German thru the paternal side. (The dynasty is originally of German
    paternal descent and was a branch of the House of Saxe-Coburg and
    Gotha, itself derived from the House of Wettin, which succeeded the
    House of Hanover to the British monarchy following the death of Queen Victoria, wife of Albert, Prince Consort.)
