"Germany's unforgivable crime before World War Two was its
attempt to loosen its economy out of the world trade system and to
build up an independent exchange system from which the world-finance
couldn't profit anymore. ..." - Winston Churchill (The Second World War
- Bern, 1960). (Quoted in WITNESS TO HISTORY 2013 Edition, A Michael Walsh Compilation p. 47)
"The unforgivable sin of Hitler's Germany was to develop a new
economic system by which the international bankers were deprived of
their profits." - Winston Churchill. (Quoted ib. p. 148)
Here, the version with the word "sin" is reproduced with "Jewish" before "bankers" :
Richard Spencer Zionism Texas
In the two following discussions, Churchill's 1960 book is not mentioned :
There are also discussions on Stormfront and Axis History Forum, but Google says me that these sites are not safe, so I didn't look.
I don't find it very likely that Churchill expressed such an idea as his own in a book published in 1960.

The problem is that they are using a secure server URL (https) but without the secure validation; it is no big deal, just an oversight. You can try the url with or without the s after http, but just override any non-secure site warning, if there is one.
I didn't spend too much time on this issue but I doubt that Mr. Churchill ever said it so clearly; the man was a master at dissembling.
From one of your links, the following seems like it might be correct:
This quote is from this "Foreword to the second edition (2001)" to Propaganda in the Next War (1938). [by Rogerson, Sidney, 1894-1968].
This foreword was written by David M. Pidcock. He doesn't give a source for this other than saying "as Winston Churchill pointed out to Lord Robert Boothby."
The latest version of the above book that I could find in Worldcat was 1972 not 2001.
You might e-mail David Irving--who did an honest three-volume biography on Churchill minus the usual hagiography--and see if Irving knows anything about any exchange between Churchill and Lord Robert Boothby.
If Irving responds--he's over age 80 now--my guess is that he will tell you that it's a myth, but that is just a guess on my part.
I'm not sure which link above is the best. Irving uses both.
“Now we have forced Hitler to war so he no longer can peacefully annihilate one piece of the Treaty of Versailles after the other.”
