That President Truman was a Mason. See painting below in all his finery. He also was the author of the following press release: Notice the 6-11 time at the bottom of the page. He just found out the name of the Jewish state that he promised the Zionists that he would recognize. Even he was surprised. This is the only record that I have found that verifies the ignorance of President Truman's knowledge of the name of the state. Was he intentionally duped into recognizing "Israel". Having promised the Zionists he would recognize the Jewish state, did the Zionists keep theirs? The word Israel belongs to at least three religions. Sadly President Truman gave that word away to keep his promise. He was an honest man not nearly as mentally acute as his secretary of state General George Marshall. Marshall's advice was ignored.
