Naeim Giladi was born in Iraq in 1929 to an Iraqi Jewish family and later lived in Israel and the United States. (Naeim Giladi - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia)
While living in Israel, Giladi became "disillusioned personally, disillusioned at the institutionalized racism, disillusioned at what I was beginning to learn about Zionism's cruelties.
"The principal interest Israel had in Jews from Islamic countries was as a supply of cheap labour, especially for the farm work that was beneath the urbanized Eastern European Jews.
"Ben Gurion needed the 'Oriental' Jews to farm the thousands of acres of land left by Palestinians who were driven out by Israeli forces in 1948". (The Jews of Iraq by Naeim Giladi)
In 1950, bombs began to go off in Iraq. Iraqi Jews were the targets. In January 1951 a bomb was thrown at a synagogue and three people died. By January 1952, all but 6,000 of 125,000 Iraqi Jews had fled to Israel.
After Giladi had moved from Iraq to Israel he came to believe that the anti Semitism and bombings in Iraq were the work of Jewish Zionists who wanted to persuade Iraqi Jews to move to Israel.
Giladi wrote an article entitled The Jews of Iraq which was the basis of a book called Ben Gurion's Scandals: How the Haganah and the Mossad Eliminated Jews.
Giladi states: "I write this article for the same reason I wrote my book: to tell the American people, and especially American Jews, that Jews from Islamic lands did not emigrate willingly to Israel; that, to force them to leave, Jews killed Jews; and that, to buy time to confiscate ever more Arab lands, Jews on numerous occasions rejected genuine peace initiatives from their Arab neighbors. I write about what the first prime minister of Israel called 'cruel Zionism'. I write about it because I was part of it."
Giladi's view that the bombings were the work of Jews is shared by a number of people including David Hirst (1977), Wilbur Crane Eveland (1980), Uri Avnery (1988), Ella Shohat (1986), Abbas Shiblak (1986), Marion Wolfsohn (1980), and Rafael Shapiro (1984).
In his article, Giladi writes that this was also the conclusion of Wilbur Crane Eveland, a former senior officer in the Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) who outlined that allegation in his book "Ropes of Sand".
Giladi also mentions Mordechai Ben-Porat, a former Israeli Member of the Knesset, and a Cabinet minister, who was a key figure in the Zionist underground, as having been cited as one the figures responsible for the bombings by one of the Iraqi investigators into the bombings, in a book entitled "Venom of the Zionist Viper".
Ben-Porat was one of several Israeli undercover Mossad agents arrested in Baghdad after the explosion; he was able to skip bail and flee to Israel.
