A lifelong supporter of Zionism and the Jewish people, Winston Churchill is now being accused of anti-Semitism on the strength of an alleged article of his, making the rounds on the internet.

Informed of a 1937 article draft in the Churchill Archives, accusers say it proves Churchill’s lifelong sympathy for the Jews was hypocrisy – that Churchill was, ipso facto, a closet anti-Semite.

The allegations began with an article in Britain’s The Independent: “Uncovered: Churchill’s Warnings About the ‘Hebrew Bloodsuckers'” on 11 March 2007.
