In a special show this week we look at the conflict between Israel and Palestine in the Middle East. It’s obvious to the world that Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu doesn’t want peace. The history is that Britain created this problem in 1947 by creating the state of Israel while under attack from the Jewish Irgun terrorists. Jason Yannacopoulos is not sure whether the conflict will ever end until someone somewhere intervenes but the Western powers refuse to do so, supporting the militarily superior Israelis.
Webster Tarpley takes us on a tour-de-force through history looking at the origins of the Machiavellian school of evil and war-making. He identifies Paolo Sarpi as an important figure………
Sarpi wrote A History of the Council of Trent, and his influence on historiography has been immense. John Milton is the English author who praises Sarpi at the greatest length. Milton used Sarpi as a major source, and praised him as the “great unmasker” of the papacy. Edward Gibbon, the author of The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire, was the leading historian of the British Venetian Party during the eighteenth century.
In his great tome, Gibbon wrote:
“Should Rome and her religion be annihilated, [Sarpi’s] golden volume may still survive, a philosophical history and a salutary warning.”
Lord Thomas Babington Macaulay, the Venetian Party historian of the nineteenth century, was also an admirer of Sarpi. For today’s Lord Dacre/Trevor- Roper, Sarpi was simply the greatest among all Catholic historians. So Sarpi was indeed a prodigy among oligarchs.
