'Foreign, European Jews' Have 'Helped to Cause Great Problems' In Middle East: Prince Charles 1986 Letter

In a newly released letter from 1986, Prince Charles said an "influx of foreign, European Jews" to Israel "has helped to cause great problems" and said he hopes some US president will "have the courage to stand up and take on the Jewish lobby in the US."

From The Daily Mail:
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’.

He goes on to say terrorism in the region will only end when its causes are eliminated.

He then expresses the hope a US President will find the courage to stand up to the American ‘Jewish lobby’.
The term ‘Jewish lobby’ is considered by many to be anti-Semitic – suggesting wealthy Jews in the US operate behind the scenes to exercise undue influence over government policy.

[...]Last night, Stephen Pollard, influential editor of The Jewish Chronicle, said: ‘To me this is the most astonishing element of the Prince’s letter. 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.’

Mr Pollard described the letter as ‘jaw-droppingly shocking’, adding: ‘That they [the Prince’s comments] come from the heir to the throne is unsettling, to put it mildly.’
Nigel Farage was similarly criticized as "anti-semitic" two weeks ago for saying the US has a powerful Jewish lobby:

In unrelated news, just last week UK cabinet minister Priti Patel resigned after it came out she had a secret meeting with Benjamin Netenyahu and other top Israeli officials while she was supposed to be on "vacation" in Israel.

"Communal representatives and pro-Israel activists believe the affair will bolster antisemitic conspiracy theories and damage relationships with British politicians for a generation," The Jewish Chronicle said last week after the story broke.

"One senior communal figure said: 'This will set us back 20 years.'"
