1 - Gold, Oil, Africa and Why the West Wants Gadhafi Dead
Muammar Gadhafi's decision to pursue gold standard and reject dollars for oil payments may have sealed his fate
(FinalCall.com) - The war raging in Libya since February is getting progressively worse as NATO forces engage in regime change and worse, an objective to kill Muammar Gadhafi to eradicate his vision of a United Africa with a single currency backed by gold.
Observers say implementing that vision would change the world power equation and threaten Western hegemony. In response, the United States and its NATO partners have determined “Gadhafi must go,” and assumed the role of judge, jury and executioner.
“If they kill Brother Gadhafi, I submit to you that American interests in Africa will come under severe strain,” warned the Honorable Minister Louis Farrakhan on WPFW-FM's "Spectrum Today” program with Askia Muhammad.
“That man has invested in Africa more than any other leader in the recent history of Africa's coming into political independence,” he continued. The Muslim leader said America needs access to the mineral resources in Africa to be a viable power in the 21st century.
Minister Farrakhan further pointed out in the April 1 radio interview that the current plot to kill Col. Gadhafi comes at a time of great distress and decline for America. The fall of the dollar is a manifest loss of America's prestige and influence among the nations of the earth and an indicator of her end.

“How's America's wealth today? How is she doing financially? What is the deficit? Some say it's about $56 trillion counting Social Security and Medicare. That's a big number. She's printing money, but there's nothing backing it,” said Min. Farrakhan.
In the book, “The Fall of America,” the Most Honorable Elijah Muhammad wrote, “One of the greatest powers of America washer dollar. The loss of such power will bring any nation to weakness, for this is the media of exchange between nations.”
“The English pound and the American dollar have been the power and beckoning light of these two great powers. But when the world went off the gold and silver standard, the financial doom of England and America was sealed,” he explained. Mr. Muhammad said further that “the Fall of America is now visible and understandable.
“Long has Allah (God) been gradually removing the power of the great and mighty America while few have noticed it. This has been done by degrees, and they do not perceive it.”
Mr. Muhammad warned America's fall serves as a sign of fate for her European counterparts.
Analysts say introducing the gold dinar as the new medium of exchange would destroy dependence on the U.S. dollar, the French franc and the British pound and threaten the Western world. It would “finally swing the global economic pendulum” that would break Western domination over Africa and other developing economies.
Attacking Col. Gadhafi can be understood in the context of America and Europe fighting for their survival, which an independent Africa jeopardizes.
“Gadhafi's creation of the African Investment Bank in Sirte (Libya) and the African Monetary Fund to be based in Cameroon will supplant the IMF and undermine Western economic hegemony in Africa.”
—Gerald Pereira, an executive board member of the former Tripoli-based World Mathaba
“Gadhafi's creation of the African Investment Bank in Sirte (Libya) and the African Monetary Fund to be based in Cameroon will supplant the IMF and undermine Western economic hegemony in Africa,” said Gerald Pereira, an executive board member of the former Tripoli-based World Mathaba.
The moves are also bad for France because when the African Monetary Fund and the African Central Bank in Nigeria starts printing gold-backed currency, it would “ring the death knell" for the CFA franc through which Paris was able to maintain its neocolonial grip on 14 former African colonies for the last 50 years.
“It is easy to understand the French wrath against Gaddafi,” said Prof. Jean-Paul Pougala of the Geneva School of Diplomacy.
“The idea, according to Gaddafi, was that African and Muslim nations would join together to create this new currency and would use it to purchase oil and other resources in exclusion of the dollar and other currencies,” said political analyst Anthony Wile in an editorial for The Daily Bell online.
According to the International Monetary Fund, Libya's Central Bank is 100 percent state-owned and estimates that the bank has nearly 144 tons of gold in its vaults. If Col. Gadhafi changed the purchasing terms of his oil and other Libyan commodities sold on the world market and only accepted gold as payment; a policy like that wouldn't be welcomed by the power elites who control the world's central banks.
“That would certainly be something that would cause his immediate dismissal,” said Mr.Wile.
Furthermore, pricing oil in something other than the dollar would undercut the pedestal of U.S.. power in the world. Although in trouble, the dollar is the reserve currency based on a deal made with Saudi Arabia in 1971 in which the Saudis, as the world's largest oil producer, agreed to accept only dollars for oil, Mr. Wile observed.
The Libyan affair has sparked a divide in the world community with the African Union and nations likeVenezuela, China and Cuba—and until recently Russia—on one side as voices of reason, caution and respect for international law and honoring the UN mandate which set the parameters for engagement in Libya.
On the other side are war hawkish America, France, Britain and Italy pursuing regime change and actively trying to assassinate Col. Gadhafi, though they deny that aim.
“Why all of a sudden, this rush to destroy Gadhafi?” asked Min. Farrakhan during his March 31 press conference on America's Middle East and Libya policy. “I know why you are angry with him; because he never agreed with your policies when it came to sucking the resources of Third World peoples, and putting in place dictators that would be amenable to America's policies.”
Other analysts concur that the control of Africa is front and center as the prize in the scramble to kill Col. Gadhafi and preserve Western domination on the world stage, making the African Union critical at this time.
The AU stood with Libya since NATO forces began their missile bombardment. The AU has also accused Western nations of marginalizing an African solution to an “African problem.”
The AU criticized NATO for bombing Tripoli, targeting Gadhafi family compounds and violating the stated UN mandate to uphold a no fly-zone and protect civilians.
AU negotiations to end the conflict were brokered by South African President Jacob Zuma, which the Libyan government accepted, but were discarded by the rebels who set preconditions—in conjunction with NATO—that demanded Col. Gadhafi's removal.
Graphic: MGN Online
The AU is the framework the Libyan leader was using to establish African self determination and economic self-sufficiency. Col. Gadhafi financed the restructuring of the former Organization of African Unity—formed by African leaders Dr. Kwame Nkrumah of Ghana, Sekou Toure of Guinea, Gamal Abdel Nasser of Egypt and others—into the AU and revived the concept of a United States of Africa with one continental army and a single currency backed by gold.
However critics of U.S. foreign policy objectives in Africa say efforts toward the continent becoming a unified bloc have been consistently weakened for fear that Africa will leverage more equity and control in the arena of global economics.
But the plan for an independent African currency backed by gold appears to be the real reason behind the frenzied attack on Col. Gadhafi.
“The US, the other G-8 countries, the World Bank, IMF, BIS (Bank for International Settlements), and multinational corporations do not look kindly on leaders who threaten their dominance over world currency markets.”
—John Perkins, author of “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man"
Whenever a government and leader arose that desired to use the resources of that nation for its people, America—through the CIA—would plan insurrections, coups, terrorist activities and even assassination of good leaders, observed Min. Farrakhan.
Despite the ire of Western foes, Muammar Gadhafi gained the clout to lead creation of a single currency because of strong oil profits versus a small population.
“The US, the other G-8 countries, the World Bank, IMF, BIS (Bank for International Settlements), and multinational corporations do not look kindly on leaders who threaten their dominance over world currency markets,” wrote John Perkins, author of “Confessions of an Economic Hit Man,” on Johnperkins.com. It is redolent of Saddam Hussein advocating similar policies shortly before the U.S. invaded Iraq, he said.
“Gadhafi knew how to play the West at their own game. He dared to wield real economic power in the name of Africa and anyone who dares to do so will feel the full wrath of Empire,” remarked. Perrier.
With the hopes of breaking Col. Gadhafi, foreign governments froze nearly $70 billion of Libyan assets belonging to the Libyan Investment Authority, the 13th largest international investment fund in the world. Although designed to hurt Col. Gadhafi, it injures Africa, because Libya assists with development projects throughout Africa.
An example of such projects was installing independent satellite communications across Africa, cutting off an expensive dependency on Europe for the same services. Col. Gadhafi infused $300 million into the project after the IMF, America and Europe broke repeated promises of finance.
In the 1990s forty-five African governments started RASCOM—Regional African Satellite Communication Organization—so Africa would have its own satellite and control communication costs on the continent.
Before RASCOM, costs for telephone calls to and from Africa were the highest worldwide and the continent was burdened with an annual $500 million fee paid to Europe for satellite usage. African satellites cost a onetime payment of $400 million and no annual fee—a move for self determination led by Col. Gadhafi that agitated Europe.
The rebels and collaborators
Since the beginning of the hostilities, the 69-year-old Gadhafi has consistently called for ceasefires and a political solution only to be rebuffed and have NATO missiles aimed at him and his family. However, with the stakes so high, what kind of Libya will emerge if Col. Gadhafi is killed?
“It will not be the rebels and the transitional council who will take power in Libya—it will be the imperialist powers who take over and the implications for Libya will be a complete re-colonization,” said Mr. Pereira.
Some nations officially recognized the NTC as the new legitimate government; however the NTC will face severe challenges as a government post Gadhafi. The NTC and other rebel groups lack cohesive unity, strengthening possibilities for ongoing civil strife.
Furthermore, the insurgency has become a nightmare wrought with hard financial and military questions. Xinhua News-English reported the group is cash poor and has difficulty raising money; while the only commodity available to them is oil, which still belongs the Gadhafi government and is embroiled in UN sanctions.
“I don't have any resources. Not a single dinar came in to the treasury,” lamented NTC oil and finance head Ali Tarhouni during a May 29 press conference. “We only exported one shipment (of oil) and got $150 million for that. So far we've spent $408 million on fuel. It's not a good number.”
The Benghazi-based rebels include remnants of the monarchy deposed by the 1969 Al-Fateh revolution. Several times over the years, the royalists attempted assassination of Col. Gadhafi and destabilization of the revolution, but lacked military ability and popular support.
On May 24, U.S. assistant secretary of state Jeffery Feltman announced the NTC will establish an office in Washington at the invitation of President Barrack Obama. Comparable arrangements exist with France and Britain.
For now, after several months of military intervention, betrayal by former comrades of the revolution and continued assassination attempts by NATO, Muammar Gadhafi is still standing. For the imperialists however, his elimination means the future of their power in Africa.
“Make no mistake, if NATO succeeds in Libya it will be a massive setback for the entire continent,” said Mr. Pereira.

Arab unrest boosts Turkey’s NATO role
Ankara: The pending transformation of the NATO air base in İzmir into a key land base for the alliance reflects concerns about security amid the ongoing Arab Spring, security experts have said.
The Aegean base was chosen for its new mission because of its strategic location, Nihat Ali Özcan of the Ankara-based Economic Policy Research Foundation of Turkey, or TEPAV, told the Hürriyet Daily News on Thursday.
“NATO’s command restructuring has a lot to do with the Arab Spring,” Özcan said. “The West places the utmost priority on the developments in the Middle East and North Africa. And it appears this process will take a long time, resulting in a serious security vacuum.”
In addition to İzmir, Turkey’s air base in the Central Anatolian province of Konya, which has been used since 2009 for air refueling for AWACS aircraft joining the Afghanistan operation, will see a new institutional restructuring as part of the reform strategy.
Joint command headquarters will remain at Brunssum in the Netherlands and at Naples, while the main maritime headquarters will be at Northwood in Britain and the main air command at Ramstein in Germany.

3 - Blunt U.S. Warning Reveals Deep Strains in NATO
Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates after speaking in Brussels on Friday
See also Mathaba News Agency report: Pentagon Laments Difficulties in War Against Libya, With Qaddafi Growing in Popularity
By Thom Shanker and Steven Erlanger
BRUSSELS — Defense Secretary Robert M. Gates sharply criticized NATO nations on Friday for what he said were shortages of military spending and political will, warning of “a dim if not dismal future” and “irrelevance” for the alliance unless more member nations contributed weapons, money and personnel.
In his final policy speech before he steps down, Mr. Gates issued a dire and unusually direct warning that the United States, the traditional leader and patron of the alliance, was exhausted by a decade of war and its own mounting budget deficits and simply might not see NATO as worth supporting any longer.
“The blunt reality,” Mr. Gates said, “is that there will be dwindling appetite and patience in the U.S. Congress — and in the American body politic writ large — to expend increasingly precious funds on behalf of nations that are apparently unwilling to devote the necessary resources or make the necessary changes to be serious and capable partners in their own defense.”
The White House made clear on Friday that in the tough tone of his remarks, Mr. Gates was speaking for the Pentagon, not necessarily for the administration, and that he appeared to be expressing his own frustrations after years of asking NATO to do more. But a White House official did say that Mr. Gates’s speech raised “legitimate concerns” about whether NATO was providing enough resources for the war and that the Obama administration fully expected the alliance to meet its challenges.
The United States accounts for about three-quarters of total military spending by all NATO countries, and it has in the past taken the lead in military operations and provided the bulk of the weapons and matériel. But in a post-Soviet world, there is growing resentment in Washington about NATO effectively paying for the defense of wealthy European nations.
Those strains have deepened considerably during the air war against Libya’s leader, Col. Muammar el-Qaddafi, the first NATO-run multilateral war where Washington has pulled back from a leadership role.
The strains come from varying commitments to the war from different NATO countries, the difficulties of coordinating air attacks, deficiencies of aircraft and ammunition and the simple cost of the operation, which is going on longer than many countries, including France, expected when it began on March 19.
Although NATO ambassadors attended Mr. Gates’s speech, the reaction was muted, and there was little response from NATO capitals, which have heard similar criticisms from Mr. Gates before, though not in such candid terms. “But people should take note,” one NATO ambassador said. “This is not just an old curmudgeon leaving office. He cares about the alliance and says you need to start investing in it.”
NATO’s shortcomings have long been the subject of black humor in Afghanistan, where American military officers sometimes refer to the official NATO command — called the International Security Assistance Force, or ISAF — as “I Saw Americans Fighting.” In recent months, the aggravation with NATO in Afghanistan has intensified because of Libya.
“The Europeans enjoy generous social welfare programs in part because the United States subsidizes their defense spending,” said Andrew M. Exum of the Center for a New American Security, a military research organization, who was an Army infantry officer in Afghanistan in 2002 and 2004.
If the United States did not have large stockpiles of ammunition, a senior NATO official said, the NATO campaign would already have come to a halt. The Americans are selling the ammunition, but it was the American military budget that paid for its manufacture and stockpiling.
Similarly, NATO allies must still rely on American Awacs planes and refueling aircraft, American suppression of air defenses and American intelligence gathering. Even with the United States playing a secondary role, by mid-May its operations in Libya had already cost $664 million, according to a Pentagon memo circulating in Washington, The Financial Times reported. To a certain extent, the Libyan campaign represents precisely the shift that Mr. Gates warned was coming — namely, the European nations paying for more of their own security, and to that extent it represents a “major strategic shift,” said François Heisbourg, a defense expert at the Foundation for Strategic Research.
But the Libyan campaign has also revealed inadequacies in European budgets and equipment that are likely to have a bigger impact on European spending than any swan-song scolding from an American official, no matter how respected.
At about $2 million a day, by some estimates, France is spending almost as much on Libya as it is on Afghanistan, French officials said Friday, and about the same as the United States is currently spending per day.
Even at a lower estimate of roughly 1 million euros a day — about $1.45 million — Libya has already cost France at least $120 million. But the costs are likely to have increased since the United States pulled back from a leadership position.
The French budget for military operations abroad is about $900 million for 2011, said René Carlé, the defense expert for the finance committee of the National Assembly. But the budget is “always underestimated,” and the government typically comes back to Parliament for supplementary financing. In 2008, the final operations budget was $1.2 billion, he said.
Last year, he said, French operations in Afghanistan, where there are ground troops, cost about $675 million. Adding that to the Libya operation will badly stretch the budget, and then there will be more costs to restock.
Britain, too, is being cagey about its spending in Libya, even as the current government vows to cut military outlays by about 8 percent over the next four years. There are estimates that Britain is spending about the same amount as France, around $9.8 million a week. But the British defense secretary, Liam Fox, has said that the budget is adequate for both Libya and Afghanistan.
Britain and France rank second and third within NATO on defense spending, after the United States. But Britain’s military budget is only about 7.7 percent of Washington’s. (France’s is about 6.6 percent.) Norway and Denmark have tiny military budgets of only $6.4 billon and $4.5 billion respectively, yet they have been flying strike missions over Libya, while much larger countries like Germany and Spain have not — but not because they lack the capacity, but because they disagree politically with the airstrikes.
Europeans argue that they are spending blood and treasure to support Washington in Afghanistan against the Taliban and Al Qaeda, far from Europe, and they are eager to draw down their forces there. NATO, some argue, would be best served, since Russia is no longer judged to be an adversary, as an alliance with more limited goals like defending Europe against other kinds of threats, like piracy, cyber attacks or natural disasters.
But Mr. Gates is not alone in arguing that the European allies must spend more to keep credibility with the United States.
In February, even before Libya campaign, NATO’s secretary general, Anders Fogh Rasmussen, delivered a similarly strong warning about shrinking military expenditures to Europeans at a security conference.

4 - America’s Next War Theater : Syria and Lebanon?
Posted: 11 Jun 2011 11:09 AM PDT
Washington’s War against the Resistance Bloc
Lebanese Hezbollah supporters carry posters of (from R-L) Lebanon’s Hezbollah leader Sayyed Hassan Nasrallah, Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad
Washington and its allies, Israel and the Al-Sauds, are taking advantage of the upheavals in the Arab World. They are now working to dismantle the Resistance Bloc and weaken any drive for democracy in the Arab World. The geo-political chessboard is now being prepared for a broader confrontation that will target Tehran and include Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, and the Palestinians.
by Mahdi Darius Nazemroaya
Tying Hezbollah’s Hands through External and Internal Pressure
In Lebanon, there is a deadlock in regards to the formation of a Lebanese government. Michel Sleiman, who holds the presidency in Lebanon, and the new Lebanese prime minister have been delaying the formation of the cabinet in a political row with Michel Aoun, the leader of the Free Patriotic Movement. It may be possible that the formation of a new Lebanese cabinet is being delayed deliberately to keep Lebanon neutralized on the foreign policy front.
The U.N. Security Council and several U.N. bodies are all being used by the U.S. and the E.U. to put pressure on Lebanon. U.N. Secretary Ban Ki-moon himself is a U.S. puppet who has done everything to legitimize U.S. and NATO aggression to the point where Moscow openly accused him of treachery for secret dealings with NATO in 2008. It is in this context that the U.N. is being used as a forum for insidious attempts to internationalize the domestic issue of the weapons of the Lebanese Resistance and to disarm it. Despite the fact that U.N. Resolution 1559 is no longer relevant, the Special Representative for the Implementation of Resolution 1559, Terje Roed-Larsen, still remains active and issues reports against Hezbollah.
The envoys of the U.N. to Lebanon resemble colonial figures making uninvited edicts in Beirut and working as agents of Washington, Brussels, and Tel Aviv. The Special Tribunal for Lebanon (STL), which has an entire division in the U.S. State Department dedicated to it, is also a loaded political weapon that Washington is itching to use against Lebanon and Syria. A international tribunal was formed for the slaying of the late Rafik Al-Hariri.
Hariri at the time of his murder had no official state position, but an international tribunal has been created for his case alone. On the other hand the international community has taken no interest in forming any type of tribunals to investigate the murder and assassinations of the thousands of other people killed in Lebanon. What does this say about the STL and the justice being sought?
The United Nations Interim Force in Lebanon (UNIFIL]) has also been complicit in Israeli violations against Lebanon. Even the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) has been infiltrated with officials that are supportive of Israeli crimes against Palestinians and Lebanon. This was demonstrated by Christopher Gunness, the spokesperson of UNRAW, in a May 15, 2011 interview with the Israeli military. In the same timeframe as when Tel Aviv fired on unarmed civilian protesters during Nakba Day 2011, Gunness declared UNRWA works in the interest of Israel and is against the mere position of rockets by Palestinians, which UNRWA considers a terrorist act. Even the Israeli siege of the Gaza Strip was whitewashed by the UNRWA spokesperson.
The absence of a new cabinet in Lebanon has also allowed Saad Hariri and the March 14 Alliance to continue having an ominous hand in managing Lebanon’s affairs. It also buys time for the STL, which can move forward without being challenged by a Lebanese government in Beirut that would be hostile towards it. A new government in Beirut is certain to remove any Lebanese recognition of the STL and effectively work to de-legitimize it.
Moreover, the Internal Security Forces (ISF) of Lebanon is also being used against Hezbollah and the political opponents of Saad Hariri. The ISF may even have a hand in working against Damascus and helping promote violence in Syria. The ISF take its orders from the Hariri family instead of the Lebanese government and is controlled by them.
Because of the free hand given to Hariri and his cronies from the lack of a functioning cabinet in Beirut, Ziad Baroud, the acting interior minister of Lebanon, has refused to sign any more papers from his ministry. Baroud has taken this position, because he believes that the ISF is acting covertly and without his approval or supervision. In this regard, the ISF has refused to follow the orders of Ziad Baroud to allow Charbel Al-Nahhas, the acting telecommunications minister of Lebanon, to enter ISF headquarters for a routine check. The ISF was clearly trying to hide its operations and was acting to prevent Al-Nahhas and his team from going to certain floors at ISF headquarters.
It is also no secret that Lebanon is a nest of spies and intelligent agents from the U.S., the E.U., Israel, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia that are working to tackle Hezbollah and its coalition. In 2006, during the Israeli bombardment of Lebanon the embassies of E.U. members were also collecting data against Hezbollah. The Al-Sauds have helped facilitate the links between Israel and the network of spies in Lebanon. This is demonstrated by the clear link between Sheikh Mohammed Ali Hussein, the Shiite cleric caught working for Israel, and the Al-Sauds.
In tune with all this, Hezbollah is constantly attacked as an Iranian agent. Recently, Hezbollah has been blamed alongside Iran for stirring protests in the Persian Gulf, specifically in Bahrain and the Shiite-dominated areas of Saudi Arabia. In this regard Lebanese citizens, regardless of their faith in many cases, have also been singled out by the Khaliji regimes and expelled from the Persian Gulf. This is part of a sectarian card to create regional divisions and hate. This has also been used internally in Lebanon by Saad Hariri to target Hezbollah and its allies. Hariri ironicially accused Iran of interfering in Bahrain when the Saudi military invaded the island-state to keep the Al-Khalifas in power.
The petro-sheikhdoms of the Persian Gulf are now systematically preventing Lebanese, Syrian, Iraqi, Iranian, and Pakistani citizens from entering their borders. Kuwaithas justified this by saying that there could be trouble within Kuwait due to political instability in these countries. The Kuwaiti justifications are suspect. Kuwait and its fellow sheikhdoms are doing this because they expect trouble to ignite from the Eastern Mediterranean to the Afghani and Pakistani borders with China and India.
Damascus has been under pressure to capitulate to the edicts of Washington and the European Union. This has been part of a longstanding project. Regime change or voluntary subordination by the Syrian regime are the goals. This includes subordinating Syrian foreign policy and de-linking Syrian from its strategic alliance with Iran and its membership within the Resistance Bloc.
Syria is run by an authoritarian oligarchy that has used brute force in dealing with its citizens and there is no question about it. The riots in Syria are, however, multi-factored and simply not just about a quest for liberty. In this regard there is an attempt to use the riots in Syria as a tool by the U.S. and the E.U. to pressure and intimidate the leadership of Syria. Saudi Arabia, Israel, Jordan, and the March 14 Alliance have all had roles in the Syrian riots.
The Al-Sauds have also helped drown out any authentic calls for democratic reform and marginalized the democratic elements in the Syrian opposition during the protests and riots. In this regard the Al-Sauds have supported both sectarian and violent elements that are intolerant of religious and ideological diversity. These elements are mostly Salafist extremists, like Fatah Al-Islam and the new extremist political movements being organized in Egypt. They have also been rallying against the Alawites, the Druze, and Syrian Christians.
The violence in Syria has been supported from the outside with a view of taking advantage of the internal tensions and the anger in Syria. Aside from the violent reaction of the Syrian Army, media lies have been used and bogus footage has been aired. Weapons, funds, and various forms of support have all been funnelled to elements of the Syrian opposition by the U.S., the E.U., the March 14 Alliance, Jordan, and the Khalijis. Funding has been provided to ominous and unpopular foreign-based opposition figures, while weapons caches were smuggled from Jordan and Lebanon into Syria.
The events in Syria are also tied to Iran, the longstanding strategic ally of Damascus. It is not by chance that Senator Lieberman was demanding publicly that the Obama Administration and NATO attack Syria and Iran like Libya. It is also not coincidental that Iran was included in the sanctions against Syria. The hands of the Syrian military and government have now been tied internally as a new and broader offensive is being prepared that will target both Syria and Iran.
Syria and the Levantine Gas Fields in the Eastern Mediterranean
Syria is the central piece of two important energy corridors. The first links Turkey and the Caspian to Israel and the Red Sea and the second links Iraq to the Mediterranean. The surrender of Syria would mean that Washington and its allies would control these energy routes. It would also mean that the large natural gas fields off the Lebanese and Syrian coastline in the Eastern Mediterranean would be out of reach for China and instead go to the E.U., Israel, and Washington.
The Eastern Mediterranean gas fields have been the subject of negotiations between the E.U., Turkey, Iran, Syria, and Lebanon. Aside from the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan (BTC) Pipeline, the existence of the Levantine natural gas fields is also the reason why the Kremlin has created a military foothold in Syria for the Russian Federation. This has been done by upgrading Soviet-era naval facilities in Syria. Moreover, it has been Iran that has agreed to explore and help develop these natural gas fields off the Levantine coast for Beirut and Damascus.
There is a strong correlation between war in Southwest Asia and increased talk at the official level about Palestinian statehood. Hopes of Palestinian statehood have always been used twice to discharge pressure in the Arab World built from rising tensions from war preparations against Iraq. The first time was by George H. Bush Sr. and the second time by George W. Bush Jr., who was praised for being the first U.S. president to seriously talk about a Palestinian state.
Even as he flip-flops on his position, Obama now is talking about a Palestinian state too. Moreover, rapprochement between Hamas and Fatah has taken place as the count-down towards international recognition of Palestinian statehood begins. The Israelis have also released frozen funds to the Palestinians, which they refused to do before due to Hamas.
The rapprochement between Fatah and Hamas has also served to tie the hands of Hamas. Hamas will have to be careful not to effectively become a junior partner in governing the Palestinians under Israeli occupation. Hamas must now modify its behaviour to continue its partnership in a unity government with Fatah, which will undemocratically be imposed as the senior partner the Palestinian Authority. In a manner of speaking, Hamas is being domesticated indirectly by Israel and Washington.
Instability in Pakistan
With the announcement that Osama bin Laden has been killed by U.S. forces has come an entire package of events. There has been a calculated effort to present Osama bin Laden as a popular and venerated figure for Muslims. This is with a view of supporting the so-called “Clash of Civilizations.”
At the same time the U.S. government is starting a media campaign against Pakistan. Islamabad has been portrayed as harbouring Osama bin Laden and his Al-Qaeda network. In reality any Pakistani involvement with terrorists has been ordered and directed by Washington. There is a much more complicated story to all this, but what is happening in reality is that Pakistan as a nation is being targeted for dismantlement.
The dismantlement and destabilization of Pakistan would serve three objectives:
1. Promoting a scenario of a war with Iran: Pakistan would not be under threat of a takeover by revolutionaries that would side with Iran and its allies.
2. The targetting of Chinese interests in Pakistan, including the energy corridor from Iran to China (and the Chinese port in Gwadar), which transits through Pakistan.
3. Regional destabilization in a key area of Eurasia where Southwest Asia, Central Asia and the Indian sub-continent meet. This area extends from Iran and Afghanistan to Pakistan, India, and Western China.
At the same time Washington also wants to neutralize the Pakistani nuclear program.
The U.S. has also announced that it has the right to violate the national boundaries of countries which harbour terrorists as well as send troops to these countries as part of the “war on terrorism.” Hillary Clinton has justified Washington’s stance by saying that U.S. forces would be assassinating terrorists. This is merely an opening door for creating a pretext for military intervention in countries such as Iran, where the Revolutionary Guards have been designated as a terrorist organization by the U.S., or Syria, where several exiled Palestinian groups have been designated as terrorist organizations by Washington.

5 - The Necessity of Resisting Financial Tyranny (June 11, 2011)
It's time we defended liberty and democracy against financial tyranny: take your money out of Wall Street and the "too big to fail" banks, and stop funding their fraud, churn and subversion of democracy.
June 14th is a national day of resistance against economic tyranny. We all need to do our part. The good folks at AmpedStatus.org have hosted this site: Acts of Resistance: What Are You Going To Do On June 14th to Rebel Against Economic Tyranny?Demonstrations and public actions are being planned in a number of cities.
If you cannot attend the public events, then consider taking direct action against Wall Street and the "too big to fail" banks. Direct action boils down to this simple act: remove your money from their grasp. Your money fuels their exploitation, their fraud, their skimming, their lobbying and thus their sabotage of democracy. If we all take our money out of their grasp, then they will shrink or expire.
If you haven't already, move your IRA and other accounts out of Wall Street and "too big to fail" banks. Move the accounts to online firms, local credit unions or local banks. Yes, there are still locally owned and controlled banks. Moving your money to them is a direct-action statement against financial tyranny.
This can be painful. I had a 20-year business bond with my broker, and it was painful to pull the account away from him. But I explained why, and he understood; of course he understood.
Removing your shares and money is important because Wall Street and the TBTF banks use your money to churn profits for themselves. Your shares are sold short, your cash lent out on a daily basis, etc., and the proceeds are used to subvert democracy via lobbying and campaign donations, and to pay for the financial Elites' mansions and yachts and tax attorneys.
The TBTF banks reap enormous profits from credit card and debit card transactions. Using cash instead of paying them a slice of every transaction is another direct-action way to "starve the beast."
A critically important blow against financial tyranny is paying off all high-interest credit cards and other debt owed to Wall Street (margin debt) or the TBTF banks. You earn .01% on your cash, but the banks skim 18% on your credit card debt.
Although this isn't an option for most people, in the longer term, a very powerful direct action is paying off your mortgage and not getting another one. The same can be said of auto loans and student loans. The single most important direct action is to remove debt from their churn machine. Without any home mortgages to securitize, Wall Street can't spin off derivatives of that debt and book profits by packaging and selling it.
A debt-free society where citizens refuse to give their money to Wall Street is a society freed of the financial tyranny that has strangled the economy and democracy. We as a society have been brainwashed into believing debt benefits us; but that is a lie. Debt actually enslaves us in more ways than one: it enslaves us financially, and gives the Power Elites the means to enslave us politically.
Demonstrations are good, but direct action by millions of citizens is even better.Don't take on $100,000 of debt you cannot dismiss in bankruptcy to get a marginal college degree; find another path that includes financial freedom. Don't fall for the consumerist fantasy of "aspirational spending"--focus on self-expression and enterprise, not on buying a lot of crap with debt that only enriches Wall Street and the big banks.
Focus on paying off debt, even if it means sacrificing consumption.Paying off debt is a political action now, not just a financial act in favor of freedom. Paying off debt, removing your money from the greedy grasp of Wall Street and the TBTF banks-- these are blows for liberty and against the financial tyranny which is destroying the nation.
Yes, we still have a mortgage, but we are devoted to paying it down in advance. We have no auto loans, no student loans, no credit card debt, and we use cash at the grocery stores and farmer's markets. Every dime we each remove from Wall Street and the TBTF banks is a direct action against tyranny and a meaningful reinforcement of democracy and liberty.

6 - Iran and the issue of nuclear weapons
By Lawrence Davidson
11 June 2011
Lawrence Davidson considers the roles of Israel, the Israeli lobby in the USA and the conservative Arab Gulf rulers in creating and sustaining the fantasy of an Iranian nuclear threat, and highlights the failure – through cowardice, expediency and duplicity – of politicians who know better and the media to challenge this fantasy.
Is there an Iranian nuclear weapons programme?
On Friday 3 June 2011 the investigative reporter Seymour Hersh gave an interview to Amy Goodman for the radio programme Democracy Now! The topic was Iran and whether or not it is developing nuclear weapons. Hersh answered this question definitively for Goodman as he did shortly thereafter in a comprehensive piece for the New Yorker magazine entitled "Iran and the bomb: how real is the threat?" His answer: there is no Iranian nuclear weapons programme. There is no threat.
Hersh set this issue against the background of the 2003 invasion of Iraq. In that case there was no credible evidence for weapons of mass destruction yet we had high government officials going around talking about the next world war and mushroom clouds over American cities. Both the US Congress and the general population bought into this warmongering. Hersh is obviously worried about a replay of that scenario. Thus, in his interview, he said "you could argue it’s 2003 all over again... There’s just no serious evidence inside that Iran is actually doing anything to make nuclear weapons... So, the fact is ... that we have a sanctions programme that’s designed to prevent the Iranians from building weapons they’re not building."
In 2003 those kind of sanctions, applied to Iraq, along with the accompanying misinformation campaign, led to a tragic and unnecessary war. Are we now doing it all over again? As Amy Goodman pointed out, "the Obama White House ... has repeatedly cited Iran’s nuclear programme as a threat to the world. President Obama raised the issue ... during his speech before AIPAC[American Israel Public Affairs Committee]..." Obama told his audience: "So let me be absolutely clear: we remain committed to preventing Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons." Obama went on to characterize Iran’s civilian nuclear energy programme, which is its only programme and perfectly legal, as "its illicit nuclear programme".
Finally, Hersh pointed out that there have already been two National Intelligence Estimates (NIEs) on the question of Iran and nuclear weapons. These express the collective opinion of 16 US intelligence agencies. Their unanimous conclusion has been that "there is no evidence of any weaponization".
If this is the case, what in the world was President Barack Obama talking about when addressing AIPAC? What in the world was Admiral Mike Mullen, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, talking about when, during a visit to Gulf kingdom of Bahrain on 18 December 2010, he announced that "from my perspective I see Iran continuing on this path to develop nuclear weapons..."? And what are the members of Congress talking about when they address this question? The vast majority of them take the same line as the president and Admiral Mullen.
In addition, this assumption about Iran’s nuclear ambitions has crept into the mainstream press. Amy Goodman asked Hersh about a New York Times report (24 May 2011) stating "the world’s global nuclear inspection agency [the International Atomic Energy Agency, or IAEA] ... revealed for the first time ... that it possesses evidence that Tehran has conducted work on a highly sophisticated nuclear triggering technology that experts said could be used for only one purpose: setting off a nuclear weapon". Hersh quickly pointed out the that the word "evidence" never appeared in the IAEA report and, it turns out, the type of nuclear trigger the New York Times was referring to is so fraught with technical problems that, according to Hersh, "there is no evidence that anybody in their right mind would want to use that kind of a trigger".
So, what in the world is the New York Times telling us?
What is real?
“The Israeli lobby is more influential in formulating US foreign policy toward Iran than all of the nation’s intelligence services put together.”
Questions One and Two: The questions about Iran’s nuclear development are not open ended. They have real answers. First, is Iran developing nuclear energy? The answer to this is a definitive yes. No one, Iranian or otherwise, denies this. Their aim here is energy production and medical applications. This is all legal.
Second, is it developing nuclear weapons? According to every reliable expert within the intelligence agencies of both the United States and Europe, the answer is a no. These answers describe reality in relation to Iran and its nuclear activities.
Question Three: The really important question is why do American politicians and military leaders refuse to accept reality as regards this issue? That too must have an answer. And intelligent people who investigate these matters should be able to figure it out. I consider myself in this crowd, and so I am going to venture forth with my answer.
Answer to question three: Its politics. However, it is not just US politics. Others have helped write the script. These others can be identified by asking to whom are American officials pledging to pursue the Iranian nuclear weapons fantasy? The president pledged to AIPAC, the Israeli lobby, that the United States will "prevent Iran from acquiring nuclear weapons". And Admiral Mullen assured the Gulf Arabs that he, as the head of the US military, takes seriously the notion that "Iran [is] continuing on this path to develop nuclear weapons".
Other people’s fears and fantasies become America’s
Israeli politicians are addicted to the Iran threat. Iran serves, alongside the Palestinians, as the latter-day ruthless anti-Semite who would destroy the Jews. Zionists seem to need this kind of "existentialist" enemy. This is the equivalent of the Islamic fundamentalist taking the place of the hateful communist as the great enemy that the United States also seems to need. The Israeli lobby is more influential in formulating US foreign policy toward Iran than all of the nation’s intelligence services put together. Hence our politicians, from the president on down, chase shadows. Not just verbally, mind you, but in terms of definable policy (like sanctions against Iran).
“The Gulf Arab leaders are ... addicted to the Iran threat... [T]he fear in the minds of the oil sheikhs comes from centuries of conditioning based on Sunni-Shi’i competition.”
The Gulf Arab leaders are also addicted to the Iran threat. While Israel’s addiction comes from centuries of conditioning based on anti-Semitism, the fear in the minds of the oil sheikhs comes from centuries of conditioning based on Sunni-Shi’i competition. The Gulf Arabs elites are all Sunnis and they have been raised to dislike Shi’s. Iran is an up-and-coming Shi’i power and its people have been raised to dislike Sunnis. For the oil sheikhs even the rumour, just mere gossip, about a nuclear armed Iran sends them into a panic. And it is these Arabs who supply the West with a big percentage of its oil. So, their fantasies have to be taken seriously. Not just verbally, mind you, but in terms of definable policy (like naval fleets shadowing the Iranian coastline).
US politicians and military leaders cannot talk like this and create policy like this without the mainstream press following along. Where there is smoke, there must be fire. Plus, ever since the Iranian hostage crisis (1979-81), Americans have been told that the Iranians hate us. So be it Fox TV, whose fanatical conservative backers have always lived in a bipolar fantasy world of good and evil, or the New York Times, whose quasi-liberal backers empathize with Israel just enough to buy into that country’s paranoia, the message is that the Iranians are crazy people out to destroy the West. And the evidence? Who needs it?
The real danger is acting on false assumptions
What happens when a well-armed individual cannot tell the difference between reality and unreality? What happens when a well-armed individual just knows, in his gut, that the other guy is plotting to destroy him? Chances are good that something horrible will happen. And the American public ought to know that this is so, because collectively we have already lived out this tragedy in 2003. In that year we had leadership which was much more influenced by its guts, by religious imagery, by duplicitous Iraqi conmen, by scheming Zionists and ideologically driven neo-cons, than anything vaguely resembling hard evidence. That "something horrible" cost the lives of over a million human beings.
But, your might argue, Barack Obama is not George Bush. There is a high likelihood that Obama and his military people actually take seriously the intelligence reports (those NIEs) that tell the truth about Iran. Alas, they do not appear to be able to tell this truth publically – to you and me or the media. If they did that the Israeli lobby would get mad, the Gulf Arabs would get mad, and the Republican opportunists would scheme to say they were weak and naive come the next election.
So let us get this straight. It seems there are two worlds. The real world of facts and evidence and the unreal world of political fantasy. Our political leaders and their advisers are, apparently, stuck in the unreal one. Their words, and their policies, are built on the assumptions of this fantasy world. They go to war and kill people based on beliefs that are demonstrably false. And the rest of us? Most of us are stuck in our own local niches and beyond them we do not know what is real or unreal. So we rely on others to tell us what is allegedly real beyond our local sphere. Who are the others? They just happen to be our political leaders and their advisers. Well, that makes a nice little circle. And, a predictably fatal one at that.
7 - Breaches of international law lay behind unrest on Israeli-occupied Syrian Golan Heights
By Richard Lightbown
8 June 2011
While much of the Western media have ignored the recent bloodshed on the Golan Heights, the limited reports that have been released appear to misunderstand the background to the present confrontation. Richard Lightbown explains the history.
Many media reports of the confrontations on the Golan Heights on 5 June did not accurately represent the background to the protests. The Guardian reported on 6 June that the clashes occurred “on the Syrian border” and their analysts referred to “deliberate antagonism of Israel by the Syrian regime”. On the same day a report on BBC’s “Today” programme referred to “a disputed border” before stating that Syria “had lost the Golan Heights to Israel”. A review of the history and current status of the area, therefore, appears required reading for some foreign correspondents.
“Because of its rich volcanic soils and water resources, the Golan has long been coveted by Zionists."
The Syrian Golan Heights (as the UN refers to the region) was recognized as Syrian sovereign territory by an Armistice Agreement signed between Israel and Syria under UN auspices in 1949. Because of its rich volcanic soils and water resources, the Golan has long been coveted by Zionists. Attempts were made starting in 1891 to buy land there, and Zionist President Chaim Weizmann wrote to British Prime Minister Lloyd George in 1919 expressing designs for the region to form part of the Jewish National Home in Palestine. (Dr Weizmann wrote to oppose the Sykes-Picot Agreement of 1916 by which Britain and France had agreed the carve up of the Ottoman Empire after the World War I. These imperial designs interfered with Zionist schemes for the Levant.)
Article 2 (4) of the UN Charter requires the respect of every state’s territorial integrity. Newly admitted to the UN in 1949, Israel began almost immediately to encroach beyond its boundaries as agreed under the 1949 Armistice. Fortifications were built in the UN-administered demilitarized zone, while illegally deployed Israeli soldiers obstructed UN observers and even threatened to kill them on one occasion. Arab residents of the area were evicted and their homes looted and destroyed. The UN Security Council (UNSC) passed a resolution in May 1951 demanding that Israel allow the residents to return. Other resolutions against Israeli violations of international law followed in 1953, 1956 and 1962, all to no avail.
Prior to the 1967 invasion there were many clashes between Syrian and Israel forces. The former Israeli defence minister, Moshe Dayan, later opined that more 80 per cent of these clashes were deliberately provoked by Israel, explaining that kibbutzim covetous of Syrian land had pressed the Israeli government to invade the Golan Heights. Another Israeli, Mattityahu Peled, who served as a member of the General Staff during the 1967 war, also stated in a newspaper interview that all the incidents were Israeli initiated.
“On 14 December 1981 the Knesset passed the Golan Heights Law, which extended Israeli laws to occupied Syrian areas. The UN Security Council responded to this … by passing Resolution 497 declaring the Israeli legislation ‘null and void and without international legal effect’.”
At the time of the invasion during the 1967 war there were 137,000 Arab residents in the area that was occupied. Following the attack, 130,000 of them were expelled from their homes in two cities, 130 villages and 112 farms, all of which were destroyed. (The Golan capital of Quneitra had been a city with 25,000 population. When liberated by Syrian armour in 1973, troops discovered all the buildings destroyed or uninhabitable. This included houses, shops, mosques and the hospital.)
UNSC Resolution 242 of 1967 requiring “withdrawal of Israel armed forces from territories occupied in the recent conflict” was ignored by Israel. On 14 December 1981 the Knesset passed the Golan Heights Law, which extended Israeli laws to occupied Syrian areas. The UN Security Council responded to this breach of customary international law by passing Resolution 497 declaring the Israeli legislation “null and void and without international legal effect”. The resolution demanded that the legislation be rescinded. No other country has recognized this de facto annexation, but Israel made no attempt to comply with its legal obligations.
However, the remaining local population had no intention of being absorbed into the occupying state. Following the invasion some 7,000 residents occupying six villages in the north of the Golan were permitted to stay. This was part of a divide-and-rule policy by Israel. The Arab residents of the villages are mostly of the Druze religious community and the rulers of the Zionist state have been trying to develop a Druze buffer zone subservient to Israel in the border region between Lebanon and Syria. These people were required by Israel’s rogue legislation to give up their Syrian citizenship and adopt that of Israel. A six-month general strike followed, and most of the new Israeli identity cards were publicly burned. The Israeli government eventually gave way to the protests and most of the residents still retain their Syrian nationality. Israeli attempts to eliminate the Arab national identity have also been opposed. Indoctrination by unqualified teachers instructing the Hebrew language, Israeli literature and Israel’s version of history is still strongly resisted within this community.
“Unrest at the boundaries of Israeli-occupied territory may well serve a Syrian government under pressure for regime change. But the roots of this unrest are long-standing genuine grievances against the expansionist and tyrannical policies of the Israeli state.”
The long-standing Zionist greed for the Golan has been realized through the establishment of 33 settlements in the region, and a programme is ongoing to extend this process of colonization (in defiance of UN Security Council resolutions and the Fourth Geneva Convention). Only these settlements are allowed to irrigate their crops, giving the colonizers a major competitive advantage over the Arab farmers. Israel also extracts more than its fair share of water from the Jordan River System. Studies published in 2006 indicate that while Israeli territory contributed 11.4 per cent of the total water to the system, the Israeli state extracted 50 per cent of the total. (Syria contributed 31 per cent and extracted 18.5 per cent. Palestine, Jordan and Lebanon all extracted less than their contributions.) The study found Israeli abstraction to be inequitable and unreasonable, and in contravention of international water law.
Within Israel it is generally held as an article of faith that holding the Golan is a guarantee of Israeli security. It is true that in both the wars of 1967 and 1973 the Golan was conquered by armour. Yet this does not take account of modern warfare methods. During the war between Israel and Lebanon in 2006 Merkava tanks were destroyed by Lebanese missiles. (In 2004 the then Israeli chief of staff said in a newspaper interview that the Israeli army would be able to defend any border. Israeli air power, after all, is omnipotent in the region and can inflict serious damage.)
Unrest at the boundaries of Israeli-occupied territory may well serve a Syrian government under pressure for regime change. But the roots of this unrest are long-standing genuine grievances against the expansionist and tyrannical policies of the Israeli state. Western media sources seldom comment or reflect this reality, nor do they seem to be aware of the legality of the occupation and its artificial boundaries. In so doing they render a disservice to the victims of criminality, while failing to uphold the highest standards of professional journalism.
Much of the data for this article are derived from papers presented to the London International Conference on the Golan in 2007.
8 - Barack Obama’s betrayal of Abraham Lincoln’s ideals
By Paul J. Balles
6 June 2011
Paul J. Balles argues that US President Barack Obama has defiled the ideals of his idol, Abraham Lincoln, and instead of working to bring about government “of the people, by the people, for the people”, he has presided over government “controlled by corporate barons, lobbies and Wall Street”.
One of the most interesting stories in the history of the United States involved Abraham Lincoln’s Gettysburg address.
President Lincoln had a minor role in dedicating a cemetery at Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, for the burial of those who had died for the union in the American Civil War.
As is true of many wars, Lincoln had lost popularity as a result of the loss of lives. He was also given a short time to prepare his dedication speech.
"’By the people’ informed much of Obama's rhetoric that stimulated so many people to vote for him... Unfortunately, once he got into office, he no longer reflected a government ‘by the people’. The government, controlled by corporate barons, lobbies and Wall Street, devoured Obama.”
After a two-hour oration by Edward Everett, Lincoln's address took only a few minutes devoted to maintaining support for the war.
Lincoln's moving address was completed in 10 powerful sentences beginning with: “Four score and seven years ago our fathers brought forth on this continent a new nation, conceived in liberty, and dedicated to the proposition that all men are created equal.”
He then noted briefly their purpose in being there: "to ... dedicate ... a final resting place for those who here gave their lives that that nation might live".
Lincoln summed up his position by reminding his audience of "...the great task remaining before us – that from these honoured dead we take increased devotion to that cause for which they gave the last full measure of devotion – that we here highly resolve that these dead shall not have died in vain".
His conclusion: “that this nation, under God, shall have a new birth of freedom – and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth".
President Barack Obama's presidential ideal has been Abraham Lincoln, the man who made famous the phrase "Of the people, by the people, for the people".
One can see why the author of that captivating rubric for a democracy would have endless appeal to Obama, a natural icon "of the people".
Obama is one of the few presidents not from the highest stratosphere of an elite oligarchy, but descendant from ordinary people.
"By the people" informed much of Obama's rhetoric that stimulated so many people to vote for him. The appeal of his arguments and promises for change earned him the presidency.
Unfortunately, once he got into office, he no longer reflected a government "by the people". The government, controlled by corporate barons, lobbies and Wall Street, devoured Obama.
Equally pernicious, Obama totally reneged on his promise of change to a government for the people.
The bailouts of his early days in office did not benefit the people. Help for home owners whose mortgages were being foreclosed would have. Instead, the help went to the financial institutions of Wall Street to save them.
The ideals of Lincoln's of, by and for the people and the unfulfilled promises of Obama have lessons to be learned.
These are the ideals of democracy. The ideals don't become reality simply by stating them in a speech or by marching with flags and slogans in a demonstration.
They don't become reality through protests or speeches promising change. As English journalist and novelist Arnold Bennett said: "Any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts."
America still hasn't achieved the democracy that Abe Lincoln's words revered or that Obama's campaign hopes nourished.
One of America's leading senators, J. William Fulbright, said "It's unnatural and unhealthy for a nation to be engaged in global crusades for some principle or idea while neglecting the needs of its own people."
Instead of exerting pressure on others for democracies, America needs to focus on improving its own.
9 - International law and the problem of enforcement
By Lawrence Davidson
5 June 2011
Lawrence Davidson traces the flaws built into the International Criminal Court that allow some states to get away with crimes to the exceptionalism and superiority complexes afflicting countries such as Russia, China and the US, which is also “tied so closely to the criminal behaviour of the Israelis that it has dedicated itself to protecting Israeli nationals as well”.
Anthropomorphizing the nation state
One of the defining characteristics of modern Western culture is individuality. Most people in the West take it for granted that they have the right to free expression and personality development.
However, in practice, this right is not open ended. It is fine if you want to express yourself as a musician, a painter, a film maker, a writer, etc. Equally legitimate is your desire to express yourself as an engineer, accountant, bus driver or auto mechanic.
Things become very different if you have a great desire to express yourself as a thief or want to develop your personality as a serial killer. There are rules, in the form of laws, against these latter avenues of expression. If you choose to ignore these laws there are police forces and courts systems that will seek to force you to do so. Another way of saying this is that within states or nations, people usually must confine their right of self expression to activities that do not impinge in a harmful or unwanted way on others in the community
It was at the end of the 18th century and throughout the19th century that Western leaders of both established nations and aspiring nationalities began to apply this language of self expression to the nation state. In other words, they claimed the same right of self expression for the collective as for the individual. This represented a melding of romanticism and politics that allowed for the anthropomorphizing of the nation. That is, something that was not a human being (the nation) was being treated as if it was.
The French revolutionaries spoke of "France" as the growing embodiment of human freedom with a mission to export liberty to others, German nationalists such as Herder and Fichte believed that the "German nation" embodied a volkgiest, or "spirit of the people" that had to be free to create a unified and enduring state. Italian, Russian and other nationalists made the same argument for their nationalities or ethnic groups. In each case, the claim that the collective, with its unique cultural personality, had the right to unfettered development led to a serious and continuing problem.
One half of the problem expresses itself in the form of "exceptionalism". That is the assertion that the nation has rights because its culture and people are, in some way, superior to others and/or because they are "God blessed". Being superior to others means the nation, striving to realize its uniqueness, has priority claims to a "homeland" and its resources. Those who stand in the way of this goal can be evicted or otherwise persecuted.
Or, perhaps, the nation in question has evolved a special way of life (democracy, capitalism, communism or some religion) that its leaders feel it must share with others – whether they want this gift or not. So it sends out missionaries and diplomats and then usually follows them up with gunboats.
Empire building based on a claim of superiority often results. It turns out that almost all great powers, Western and non-Western, have expressed some form of exceptionalism.
The second half of the problem lies in the fact that these anthropomorphized nation states, with their insistence on the right of self-expression, are acting in an arena of international relations that lacks sufficient rules to limit their behaviour. There is nothing to actually force them to confine their acts of self expression to activities that do not impinge in a harmful or unwanted way on other states or populations.
Certainly, traditional diplomacy and the use of standard treaties has not been able to do so. Until the end of World War II there were a few Geneva conventions that, with mediocre success, sought to ameliorate the treatment of civilians and prisoners during wartime. Come the world wars of the 20th century even these were ignored. The horrors of World War II gave new impetus to establishing enforceable international rules or laws, including laws against genocide and crimes against humanity, but over time these too have been eroded. And, here again, exceptionalism has been the motivator. We can see how this has taken place by looking at the case of the International Criminal Court (ICC).
Undermining international law
The ICC was created in 2002 by the a founding treaty known as the Rome Statute. The court was designed to be an independent body capable of prosecuting major transgressions such as genocide, war crimes and crimes against humanity.
However, there were also conflicting amendments built into the founding document. Among others, the court’s jurisdiction is usually limited to crimes committed by a national of a state that is party to the treaty or committed on such a state’s territory. Nonetheless, the court is also obligated to investigate any case referred to it by the United Nations Security Council, whether the nation or individuals involved are covered by the treaty or not.
Presently, 114 countries are party to the treaty and thus subject to the jurisdiction of the ICC. Some 34 others, including Russia, have signed the treaty but are yet to ratify it. Thus, they are still outside its jurisdiction. An additional 44 states, including China, have never signed the treaty. And finally, several states, such as the United States and Israel, while having initially adhered to the treaty have subsequently "unsigned" it and thereby withdrawn from its jurisdiction.
Just what is going on here? It would seem that the leaders of many of the major world powers – China, Russia and the United States – know that they operate in the world on the basis of exceptionalism. They actually are or likely will occupy foreign lands, pursue foreign wars, massacre civilian populations, etc. In other words, the behaviour of their nationals is very likely to transgress the laws against war crimes and crimes against humanity, and perhaps genocide as well. So they seek to stay clear of the ICC’s jurisdiction. And, in the case of the United States, the government is tied so closely to the criminal behaviour of the Israelis that it has dedicated itself to protecting Israeli nationals as well.
That is why, if you look at the record of ICC prosecutions, all of them have to do with smaller states, mostly African, who have relatively little power and no great power patrons.
Yet this skewed record gets worse, for the United States and other great powers, which are not even a party to the Rome Statute, have found a way to turn the court into a weapon to be directed at their assumed enemies. They have done so by taking advantage of the treaty clause requiring the ICC to pursue cases referred to it by the UN Security Council. This harmful bit of hypocrisy has recently been examined in an article by Stuart Littlewood, using information and analysis supplied by Dr. David Morrison of Ireland. Here are some of the points they make:
1. Libya is not a party to the ICC...Yet three months ago the UN Security Council voted unanimously, in Resolution 1970, to refer the situation in Libya to the prosecutor of the ICC. Five of the states that voted for this referral [including the United States] ... are not parties to the ICC and don’t accept its jurisdiction. So here we see the US among those forcing Libya to accept the jurisdiction of the ICC, when it refuses to do so itself.
2. This is a situation that cannot happen to countries like the United States because they can "wield their veto to block any attempt by UN colleagues to extend ICC jurisdiction to their territory".
3. David Morrison concludes that "a court with universal jurisdiction is fair. A court whose jurisdiction you, as a state, can choose to accept or reject has some semblance of fairness. But a court like the ICC, whose jurisdiction can be targeted, at the whim of the Security Council, on certain states that have chosen not to accept it, but not others, is grossly unfair."
It is the sad height of hypocrisy when the United States, whose leaders claim to have the secret to world salvation (both politically and economically), not only corrupts international law to target others, but simultaneously goes to extraordinary lengths to protect its own nationals from that same law.
For instance, if Americans were to commit war crimes in the territories of states party to the Rome Statute, those states could refer the matter to the ICC and the court could then go after US citizens. Washington has negotiated bilateral agreements with over 100 nations that specifically forbid those states from doing just that. No nation can receive military aide from the US without making this pledge.
This is the behavior of a government that knows it acts in a criminal fashion, be it on a small scale or large, and claims the exceptional right to do so with impunity. The leaders of the US do this because, as so many presidents have told us time and again, the free expression and expansion of the American way of life is best for the world. God has decreed it so. This is extraordinary hubris in action and it is why so much of the rest of the world have, at best, a love-hate relationship with the US and what it claims to stand for.
The notable English thinker and politician, Edmund Burke (1729-97), once observed that "the greater the power, the more dangerous the abuse". What can be more powerful, and therefore more abusive, than great powers claiming the right of free expression in an international arena devoid of restraining rules? In a world that is, like ours, mostly lawless.
10 - Why is the UN secretary-general trying to scupper latest flotilla plans for Gaza?
By Stuart Littlewood
1 June 2011
Stuart Littlewood challenges UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon to explain why he is trying to scupper plans for a humanitarian flotilla to the besieged Gaza Strip instead of taking effective action to protect the flotilla and compel Israel to end its illegal blockade of the Strip.
"Intercepting the Mavi Marmara on the high seas ... was clearly unlawful." The United Nations said so.
It’s in the report of the fact-finding mission set up by the UN Human Rights Council to investigate violations of international law, including international humanitarian and human rights law, resulting from the Israeli attacks a year ago on the flotilla of ships carrying humanitarian assistance to Gaza, during which nine people were killed and many others injured.
Contrary to international law
Reporting in September 2010, the mission was
satisfied that the blockade was inflicting disproportionate damage upon the civilian population in the Gaza Strip and that as such the interception could not be justified and therefore has to be considered illegal...
The mission considers that one of the principal motives behind the imposition of the blockade was a desire to punish the people of the Gaza Strip for having elected Hamas. The combination of this motive and the effect of the restrictions on the Gaza Strip leave no doubt that Israel’s actions and policies amount to collective punishment as defined by international law... No case can be made for the legality of the interception and the mission therefore finds that the interception was illegal.
And that wasn’t all. the mission considered that the naval blockade was implemented in support of the overall closure regime.
As such, it was part of a single disproportionate measure of armed conflict and as such cannot itself be found proportionate. Furthermore, the closure regime is considered by the mission to constitute collective punishment of the people living in the Gaza Strip and thus to be illegal and contrary to Article 33 of the Fourth Geneva Convention.
The action of the Israel Defence Force in intercepting the Mavi Marmara on the high seas was "clearly unlawful" and could not be justified even under Article 51 of the Charter of the United Nations (the right of self-defence).
Pack your bags, Mr Ban
“What has been unhelpful in resolving the basic economic problems in Gaza is the yellow-bellied failure of the UN to discharge its duty to implement its own resolutions and enforce humanitarian law.”
So just what did the secretary-general of the UN, Ban Ki-Moon, think he was doing last week when he attempted to scupper the latest humanitarian effort by sending a letter to governments around the Mediterranean calling on them to use their influence to discourage any more flotillas such as the one due to sail towards the end of June, which he says "carry the potential to escalate into violent conflict"?
There is, of course, nothing potentially violent about an unarmed mercy ship. There is everything potentially violent about an illegal naval blockade that the United Nations should have squelched long ago.
A press release from Mr Ban’s office said that flotillas were not helpful in resolving the basic economic problems in Gaza, though the situation there remains unsustainable, and that assistance and goods destined to Gaza should be channelled through legitimate crossings and established channels.
No, Mr Ban. What has been unhelpful in resolving the basic economic problems in Gaza is the yellow-bellied failure of the UN to discharge its duty to implement its own resolutions and enforce humanitarian law.
The secretary-general ought to remind himself of Security Council Resolution 1860 (2009), which emphasizes "the need to ensure sustained and regular flow of goods and people through the Gaza crossings" and calls for "the unimpeded provision and distribution throughout Gaza of humanitarian assistance, including of food, fuel and medical treatment".
“Unimpeded”, Mr Ban, as in unimpeded. Do we need to buy a megaphone?
So what is this talk about using "legitimate crossings and established channels"? Everyone knows that those channels, operated by the criminal blockader itself, are designed to impede the flow of everything and everyone to and from Gaza.
It's bad enough that the wimp Obama is busy rewriting international law, circumventing inconvenient UN resolutions and trying to give his Zionist friends the green light to keep the Palestinian lands and resources they have already stolen and create opportunities for them to grab more.
“... who are you working for, Mr Ban Ki-Moon? Why aren't you, as secretary-general, exhorting member states around the Mediterranean to do their duty under the UN Charter and ensure that the aid gets through to Gaza direct?”
But who are you working for, Mr Ban Ki-Moon? Why aren't you, as secretary-general, exhorting member states around the Mediterranean to do their duty under the UN Charter and ensure that the aid gets through to Gaza direct?
"Ban-chusa” the yes-man
I hear that back home in Korea Ban’s nickname is "Ban-chusa”, tagging him as a blasted pen-pusher. Some say he’s noted for his subservience. In other words, he’s a yes-man.
As if we hadn't enough of them already.
If you cannot uphold international law or insist on compliance with the raft of UN resolutions requiring an end to Israeli occupation and a permanent halt to interference with the Palestinian territories, Mr Ban, you bring the UN into disrepute. You should pack your bags and clear off back to Korea.
The secretary-general’s spokesman, Martin Nesirky, sings the same tune and says that Freedom Flotillas are useless. He urges the government of Israel to take further meaningful and far-reaching steps to end the closure of Gaza, within the framework of Security Council Resolution 1860, and emphasizes that the operation of legitimate crossings must be adequate to meet the needs of Gaza's civilian population. That’s real bright when everyone and his dog knows you can "urge" Israel all you like but the regime will take no notice until it is forced to.
Israel is a member of the United Nations and a signatory to the UN’s Charter, whose principles it happily violates repeatedly. It now plans to continue its crazed defiance of the law, the UN and international opinion by committing the same crime again and blocking the next flotilla. A 31 Mayreport in the Israeli newspaper Haaretz shows how futile the words of Ban and Nesirky are. Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahu warns that his military will if necessary use force against anyone who tries to disobey his navy's orders and head to Gaza's shore. There is also talk of deploying snipers.
It’s clear that peace-workers and the decent folk of the world cannot look to the UN for action under present management. For all its poncing around, it has done nothing effective. So while we wait for Mr Ban to be replaced by someone with guts and gumption, perhaps Mr Nesirky would kindly explain what is so “useless” about a humanitarian flotilla trying to burst through a cruel and illegal blockade that’s operated by a bunch of delinquents who may soon have to answer to charges of war crimes and crimes against humanity? Especially when his employers just sit there scratching their ass.
A letter two months ago to my Member of Parliament about the need to protect the next Gaza flotilla from unlawful interference has gone unanswered. What arrangements were being made, I wanted to know, to defend these civilians from the sort of murderous harassment on the high seas that caused worldwide uproar last year?
The Mediterranean is full of NATO ships at the moment in the service of freedom and democracy, or so we’re told. It would not surprise me if the brass hats have agreed to steer well clear of the area where Israel does its marauding and leave the Zionist extremists free to terrorize and assault the unarmed crews and passengers of a brave little fleet of mercy ships.
11 - An Expose On Jewish Racism
Showdown At The Kol Shofar Synagogue
Arthur Topham 1-17-9
Dear Radical Reader,
This is an unusually long post. My reason for running it will become obvious as one progresses through it.
It concerns a perspective on the current (and past) machinations of the state of Israel and the root cause for why we are seeing so much violence in Palestine and, by association, why we're also witnessing so much dis-information throughout the world wherever the Zionist-controlled media is presenting its version of this seemingly never-ending conflict.
It also introduces readers to Dave Kirsting, a name that most of you will be unfamiliar with on the net. Why he hasn't appeared thus far is a mystery to me for his ideas on political Zionism are as germane as anyone might wish for and ought to be seriously considered within the context of any debate over this ponderous and perplexing issue.
Please pass this article on to as many people as you can. Without a clear vision of the fundamental essence of this dangerous ideology we stand little chance of resisting the inherent evil that it represents. Thank you.

Showdown at the Kol Shofar Synagogue
An Expose on Jewish Racism
By Arthur Topham
January 15, 2009
The trouble with you
Is the trouble with me
You got two good eyes
But you still don't see.
~ The Grateful Dead/Casey Jones
Yet we must also respect those who simply protest anything less than full immediate denouncement of openly-declared racism, as Zionism defines itself to be, and as practiced for decades by the 'Jewish State' constantly expanding the turf of its supremacy. In all other cases of openly-declared state-racism, the ordinary, moderate response is to give the racist policies primary emphasis and absolute Zero tolerance. Delaying that frankness does perpetuate the cover-up which has managed to keep the gory Elephant of Zionist racism the best-kept secret in our living-room of ostensible egalitarianism.
~ Dave Kirsting, concerned Marin County, California resident
One of the great joys and blessings of being a publisher is the opportunity it provides for connecting up with interesting people from around the world.
Whether it's a short congratulatory note from Noam Chomsky; a friendly request for further info on Richard Warman from David Icke; a polite, personal invite from Jeff Rense for an interview; a gentle email from Layla Anwar; or a long, intensely humourous and perspicacious hand-written letter, replete with comic drawings!, from my dear American sister Carolyn Chute (author of The Beans of Egypt Maine and other exceptional books on the human condition), all of them and many more comprise a legacy of intimate contacts. It's these brief interludes with companion souls in the seemingly endless struggle to achieve peace and justice for all that help to compensate for the otherwise interminable and at times exasperating amount of energy expended in the operation of a thus far free and alternative news media.
In some respects each new day is like Christmas morning for a child raised in the belief that gifts are a result of living in harmony with a loving God and treating each other as we would like to be treated. And there is no gift so precious as that of discovering new friendships and realizing one is not alone, either in their feelings, their perspective or in the physical world that we all share.
One such gift for me was an email on Christmas day from a cyber friend who lives in Marin County, California. His name is Dave Kirsting. Dave has been a part of my Radical Press List Serve for some time and receives the assorted articles and analysis of global political events that I pass on to subscribers. On this occasion Dave was writing in regards to a short article of Layla Anwar's
As this is an article about Dave and his personal experiences with political Zionism as they pertain to the Arab Jewish predicament in the Middle East and how such explosive events tend to spread out over the globe like ash from an active volcano only to settle in small communities everywhere where one finds the Zionist mindset, I will let him do most of the talking (so to speak). Dave is, in my humble opinion, a very articulate, caring and astute thinker, aware of certain basic truths that I feel need to be shared with a much greater audience.
His intial email begins:
"Thank you Arthur, and Merry Christmas, and thanks for all your work.
Myself, I am so unusual as to see all discussions and arguments as pleasant gifts to me, regardless of how others may feel or how they often interpret kinds words in the fair game of dialogue. I recall once sending a comment to you regarding what I saw as perhaps a word-choice oversight, what could be called an 'error' and a 'correction,' and you responded so sensibly as to leave that lesser paradigm floating along somewhere below. This is why I always welcome emails from RadicalPress.
I am sitting here drinking my meticulously selected and brewed and consequently superb coffee on Christmas morning, waiting for my friends (including the most magically delightful woman I have ever met) to arrive in a few hours for our lascivious indulgence of lavish gift-giving, my Druidic solstice-tree all sparkling with lights and ornaments (alongside my lofty view of Mount Tamalpais, amid the blowing trees, swirling white clouds, and sparkling sunlight of Southern Marin's characteristically colliding micro-climates), to celebrate the arrival of full consciousness, a couple thousand years ago, when East met West, the discovery of a loving universe, or 'God,' the primacy of self-honesty, the proffered escape from wrathful paradigms, denials, and conceits, as it was all voluntarily embraced by the best of the Celts, wherever this new dimension of ever-returning life was superimposed over the message already inherent in their sacred evergreens.
Ms. Anwar is fundamentally correct, though a few semantic adjustments should be made, so her meaning will be clear enough for anyone willing to understand
For one thing, the truth has always been almost 100% lost in human denial, as exploited through the concerted efforts of Zionist atheists.
The Christened one always said his perfect advice could be understood by all but would be honored by terribly few. The forces that killed him, with his consent, have always remained in power and continue to try and kill his message, but they cannot do so, any more than they could even retain possession of his body, after it was dead.
The blame can't be placed on any 'leadership,' as those of us who have always struggled directly among the people can attest. Unwilling to recognize their errors and vanities, most people are willingly susceptible to the open violations of due process by which Zionists embedded in the various peace movements quash any germination of political understanding. This infects virtually everyone certainly every Arab and/or Palestinian discussion-list as 'leading' Zionists, like Jeff Blankfort, Jeffrey Halper, Richard Becker, and all the others pose themselves as the most 'radical' 'critics of Israel with the added advantage of being 'Jewish' or 'leftist' and therefore more credible and firmly prevent any pithy understanding of the flaming racism which they consistently 'overlook.' We who have won the only recorded victories against Zionism, by using the same principles taught to all children in US public schools, have been kicked off every Palestinian and Arab discussion-lists for saying unflattering but meticulously logical and polite things about the (mis)leading Jewish defenders of Palestine. Saying that an argument that ends with 'end the occupation' and/or 'two-state peace' is an essentially Zionist argument is reduced to 'How dare you call our brave, Jewish, media-connected hero a Zionist?!?!'
The front lines of the anti-Zionist effort are way deep inside the 'peace movement' and deep inside the ostensible 'anti-Zionist effort,' and Bush is the natural figurehead of this problem, nothing like its cause.
'The leaders' are not responsible; we get the only 'leaders' that can be elected while Zionism holds the swing votes in every contest and in every decision of every 'peace and justice' organization. Progress cannot begin anywhere until it begins in our dialogue with terminally distracted Palestinian and Arab leadership and in our efforts within the long-dormant 'peace movement.' All other blame is a mere distraction, far to the rear of the real front lines and often intentionally extracting attention from them. The worst disparagement of the real fighters comes from the 'Palestinian' and 'anti-Zionist' side of the struggle, and this is exactly what the most cynical Zionists mean when they laugh about how they 'control both sides of the debate.'
But the point of Christmas is that freedom is an individual issue. 'Narrow is the way and strait the gate that leads unto life and few there be who find it.' 'Those who have ears, let them hear.' And we who really do live at the actual center of world events and who make a good living by creating the most revolutionary changes in the way children are raised are also able to express the true meaning of Christmas in the sparkle and decadent pleasures of a God who truly loves all of us. It's up to us. The full luck of this perfect situation is accessible only to those who care to see it all. The Whole Truth loves us and it won't go away."
The 'illegality of the occupation'
Following this came another letter on December 30th regarding what Dave feels is the crux of the argument used by the Zionists to shift the focus of debate away from the fundamental problem onto a secondary issue, that of the 'illegality of Israel's brutal occupation'.
The Zionists love to make us think so. Because they can so easily say that they would love to 'give the land back,' and that they've been trying for decades to do so, but the bloodthirsty Palestinians aren't happy unless they're killing Jews. That's why the most active 'two-state peace' Zionists energetically propagate the slogan 'End the Occupation' to make sure that the real core issue is not noticed. The real core issue is the one about the whole basic problem, from which 'the occupation' is merely an aspect. The real core issue is also the one argument that cannot be answered and the one argument that clarifies the entire situation for all ordinary Americans the one argument that shows the wrong of every Zionist policy, the dream argument of an anti-war lifetime and the only argument the Zionists don't want to hear: THE ARGUMENT AGAINST OPENLY-DECLARED RACISM.
A Jewish state any Jewish state forced into multi-ethnic Palestine or perpetuated in any part of Palestine is violent state-racism as plain as it can ever get. All the violence the racist denial of Palestinian return, the racist creation of new 'Jewish Only' settlements, the 'targeted executions,' the sharpshooting of Palestinian children who throw stones at Israeli tanks, oh, and even 'the occupation' can all be AND CONSTANTLY IS explained away as a necessary response to Palestinian violence. But all of it, in all its varieties including 'the [post-'67] occupation' is an inherent aspect of the openly-declared racist violence of forcing an ethnic-supremacist state into a multi-ethnic region.
Invoking this reality and never straying from it the actual core issue, in its full moral inexcusability is essential to winning any argument or conflict with Zionism.
Saying that the core problem is the occupation plays right into the Zionists' desire to keep peace-talks stuck in the hopeless 65-year-old boondoggle of seeking peace through a 'realistic' two-state scenario. This just happens to perpetuate Jewish supremacy in most of Palestine, while making that racist violence feel more and more like a reasonable status-quo, even as the 'negotiations' toward an inherently unworkable racist 'solution' cannot begin to get off the ground, thus maintaining the perfect background for ever more 'reactions' in 'self-defense' against Palestinians, and an expanded occupation in 'self-defense.'
Playing the 'two-state peace' charade has the added benefit, for Zionists, of seducing the various 'peace movements' into 'discreetly' avoiding any 'radical' or 'rejectionist' talk about simply ending the racism. That is why Israel's openly-declared racism was not mentioned at all by any of the 'anti-war' organizations in the run-up to 'the war' on Afghanistan and 'the war' on Iraq despite the fact that the racist core of the entire Middle East conflict would have been the strongest argument against those spin-off 'wars'. Protecting Zionist interests in 'ending the occupation' and 'two-state peace' required discreetly avoiding the anti-racist argument because it impinges against the whole 'two-state' concept: and avoiding that argument against the Zionists' moral Achilles Heel neutered the entire anti-war effort, thus perfectly serving Zionist interests in annihilating the still-resisting nations of Afghanistan and Iraq.
Zionist racism is the core issue; any other instance of openly-declared ethnic-supremacy would be treated as racism and would be given primary emphasis and zero-tolerance by all concerned; anyone who fails to do so in the case of Israel has already internalized some of the racist indoctrination. Overlooking or protecting the racist core issue in any of its aspects has the effect of nurturing it everywhere.
The ethnically-based Zionist violence began several decades before 'the occupation.' The REAL 'occupation' which must be addressed and which can be addressed to ordinary Americans very easily is the occupation of ANY PART OF PALESTINE by an openly-declared racist-supremacist Israel.
The obvious solution the one the Zionists succeed in keeping off of everyone's minds and lips is to simply stop financing any and all policies of prejudice in the Israel-Palestine conflict. Every schoolchild in the US is taught the need to reject ethnic or religious prejudice. It is unconstitutional to finance it with our taxes. All we have to do is object to the RACISM, and all the derivative violence including the denial of Palestinian return, the Jewish-supremacist definition of Israel, the 'Jewish Only' settlements, and of course 'the occupation' dry up naturally."
For Dave, "The question, combined with emphasis on 'the occupation,' shows confusion, but the answer is simple. Israel will stop its racist violence against the Palestinians only when Israel's OPENLY DECLARED RACISM is acknowledged for what it is the core of the problem and when international support for it, by people who do not mean to support racism, is correspondingly withdrawn. The 'lands and freedom' which the international community must force Israel to return must never be confined to the [post-'67] 'occupied territories.' The violence will expand until the world frankly stops financing any and all Israeli policies of ethnic or religious prejudice: racism. Peace cannot begin unless it includes far more than just 'ending the occupation.' It must also include ending the racist violence which prevents Palestinian families from returning to their lands and homes, and it must also include ending every other policy of prejudice against the non-Jewish inhabitants of Israel-Palestine.
Thanks for all your great work Arthur. Getting the exact argument organized is essential to success which derives only from grabbing the racist Achilles Heel and never letting go for a moment, as the Zionists will try to change the subject to ANYTHING else, particularly 'the occupation.'"
Killing for votes
Following close on the heels of these comments in a subsequent response to Gilad Atzmon's recent article, "How Israeli leaders kill for their people's vote"
I would add that everything he says about 'Israelis' applies also to American Zionists including those who are surprised to discover Israel's essential racism and then find that this does not induce them to audibly oppose racist violence that was never really disguised in the first place.
The blindness of US Zionist support for Israel is not caused by an urgent need to support something which cannot be justified as it really is, in plain sight. That notion, like all excuses for Israel, requires 'angry' denial of reason. The cause and effect go the other way. The luxurious chauvinistic approval Israel enjoys from US Zionists is the source of the unlimited financial support provided by all US taxpayers (over eight million dollars a day) wangled from us through our inability to believe the obvious truth our Zionist friends, neighbors, and mass-media want us to deny. That unlimited support, with no questions asked, is what causes Israeli policies to be determined by the psychopaths who inevitably rise to top Israeli leadership by getting the quickest, bloodiest results: the policies that take utmost advantage of unlimited money and no accountability.
The geographic distance and psychic disconnect between the complacent soccer-mom Zionists among us and the hideous results of their comfy support for Israel, is exactly the disconnect that allows unthinkable barbarism 'the insanity of war' to prevail in Palestine and all the spin-off wars in the Middle East, belying all our espoused beliefs. The pleasing congeniality of our Zionist friends turns to resentment and censorship if we mention the ethnic-cleansing of Palestine. And that hostile reaction, just inside the congenial surface, is the near end of the racist violence which, at the other end, slaughters perfectly innocent men, women, and children, as 'regrettably required' for the constant expansion of an officially 'Jewish' state in multi-ethnic Palestine."
The Marin Peace & Justice Coalition and the Kol Shofar Synagogue Show-down
The perspective thus far presented is the background gestalt to a culminating event which took place in the community of Tiburon, Marin County, California at the Kol Shofar Synagogue Monday, January 12th at 7:00 P.M.
The local 'Marin Peace and Justice Coalition' had issued an open invitation to all concerned residents to join the Marin Jewish community on this evening for "prayers for peace, remarks by community and faith leaders followed by an opportunity to discuss the crisis in Israel and Gaza." In addition, as the contact person, Suzan Berns Berns,
At the same time and place another contingent of protesters had also made plans to be outside the synagogue expressing their opposition to "Israel's Gaza genocidal slaughter" as organizer Bill Rothman stated."The slaughter goes on. This is chance, right in our own backyard, to show that there is strong opposition to Israel's ongoing Gaza slaughter of the Palestinians."
These two initiatives prompted Dave to write the following to some of his associates:
"Most interesting It's a whole new dimension of activism, involving the 'Marin Peace and Justice Coalition,' which has been totally dominated and muzzled by its Zionist, apartheid 'two-state peace' activists ever since its creation, right after 9/11.
It seems there will be a 'dialogue' between peace activists and long-standing, hard-core Zionists, claiming to represent 'the Marin Jewish Community,' and there will also be a protest of the dialogue, both at the same time and place, this Monday, in Tiburon.
The protest is a whole new dimension of activism in Marin and in the anti-war movement.
The contact-person for the 'protest' is Bill Rothman who was one of the leaders suppressing honest dialogue about Zionism in the 'peace movement' eight years ago, when the crises of the past eight years were clearly beginning. Perhaps Rothman has actually changed. Many people have. Or maybe this is yet another effort by Zionists to maintain control of anti-war energies that have been aroused more seriously than ever: by the full revelation of what Zionism has always meant, now seen all too clearly in the ongoing, extended 'Christmas Massacre' of Palestinians in Gaza.
My very well informed belief is that a friendly constructive dialogue with Jewish people and the 'Jewish Community' is exactly what is most needed: so that those in the Jewish community who are willing to audibly protest the patent racist violence of forcing an expressly Jewish state into Palestine or of perpetuating the ethnic-cleansing of the past can step forward and declare this commendable transformation. And those who refuse this special opportunity now that there can be no possible excuse for further self-deception can be specifically identified as the violent racists their refusal proves them to be.
To a real 'peace' activist, protesting a long-overdue dialogue is seen as jumping the gun, particularly in a mini-community of recalcitrant 'peace activists' which has long been the primary obstacle to polite, valid, pro-peace dialogue thus playing a key role in assuring that the realities would go totally nuts, as they now have in Israel-Palestine.
Yet, there is good reason to doubt the sincerity of a 'Jewish community' dialogue when it is led by notorious Zionists. Still, I believe the offer should be accepted in good faith. Perhaps people are really changing. If this offer proves false, protests against the Zionist 'Jewish Community' and its stubbornly racist leaders at their community gathering-places should proceed in full confidence of having tried everything.
Yet we must also respect those who simply protest anything less than full immediate denouncement of openly-declared racism, as Zionism defines itself to be, and as practiced for decades by the 'Jewish State' constantly expanding the turf of its supremacy. In all other cases of openly-declared state-racism, the ordinary, moderate response is to give the racist policies primary emphasis and absolute Zero tolerance. Delaying that frankness does perpetuate the cover-up which has managed to keep the gory Elephant of Zionist racism the best-kept secret in our living-room of ostensible egalitarianism.
So 'dialogue' or 'protest': it's anyone's choice, at the same time and place.
I urge everyone who can make it: come to either the dialogue or the protest of the dialogue. I myself will attend the dialogue with complete sympathy for the protestors and with equal hopes for understanding with the Jewish community and very interested to see how leading Zionists will respond to the no-longer-deniable truth: the perfectly patent racism and violence of forcing a 'Jewish' state into a multi-ethnic region.
Let's all be perfectly polite to each other. What is demonstrably racist should be described as such politely. And it should politely receive no more of our massive tax-financing.
On January 14th I received the results of this 'gathering', one which Dave had called 'the story of the decade'. His letter contained the details of his personal experiences plus his final 'corrective letter' to the Jewish Community Relations Council. As he said by way of introduction:
"As always, when Zionism is involved, there was a gross misrepresentation.
But the significance of what transpired remains. The conflict between the realities of Zionism and the decent standards of the world and of our local neighborhoods becomes increasingly stark.
My corrective letter to the Jewish Community Relations Council (to whom the original nice-sounding announcement was attributed) is necessarily long, and I never 'expect' anyone to read anything I offer but this situation, the near-end of the wrongs we see in Palestine, is surely more significant than most of what is said on related subjects in the media."
Here is what happened. [the following is directed to the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) Ed.]
I live in Tiburon, just a few blocks from Kol Shofar. I have many dear friends all around here, including many Jewish friends of course. I attended the event with high expectations, based on a representation whose origin appears to be you [the JCRC Ed.] and local representatives of the 'Jewish community.' As I have sometimes attended events of this kind and have always found the Jewish community quite open to challenging ideas, for the sake of peace in Israel as well as the entire region, I came prepared with some written, one-page copies of the best position I know for full equality in Israel-Palestine, in furtherance of the belief that human equality is fundamental to peace: the case for ending all US funding for any and all policies of ethnic or religious discrimination, by any side, involved in the Israel-Palestine conflict what all American children are taught to expect of their communities and country.
The last time I attended an event of this kind at the Osher Marin JCC I found a very large and friendly group discussing my ideas with me, kindly and attentively, and a number of people had asked where they could get my ideas in written form, so I came prepared. The extensive security at the Kol Shofar event struck me as reasonable, in these times, underlined by the presence of some nearby 'protestors,' who had apparently deigned to bypass the announced opportunity for constructive dialogue. And when someone near the door asked to see what was in my (paper) folder, I was pleased to hand it to him. The exact content did not appear to matter. The person looked at the paper for no more than two seconds, apparently deemed the ideas inconsistent with his own, and immediately threatened me with violence and ordered me to leave. The man told me that 'This is private property, and you will be arrested if you don't leave immediately.'
Naturally floored at this vulgar expression of violent discourtesy from Kol Shofar, I asked 'Because I possess these ideas?' The answer was 'Yes.' I had not given any papers to anyone, nor would I have felt mistreated if someone had asked me to leave them at the door. Thinking of the genteel announcement from the JCRC, I tried to ask while turning away 'Are you aware that this event has been advertised as a community discussion?' Before I could finish the first three words, I was interrupted with 'No more words. Just leave.' Several Tiburon Police officers, correctly doing their duty on behalf of private-property laws, closed in to properly enforce this grotesque misuse of local law and subversion of our Constitutional free speech. The invading extremists clearly know how to misuse our society's standards and law-enforcement as a means of mere, subjective violence.
The attitude expressed by these representatives of Kol Shofar was not professional firmness; it was brute contempt for anyone outside their very narrow ethnic profile quite eye-opening, coinciding as it does with the impressions we are getting from Zionist behavior in Gaza.
With wonderfully telling coincidence, I had just encountered a long-time friend of mine, a young man of the finest courtesy and reputation, who grew up three blocks from Kol Shofar and whom I have known since he was an eleven-year-old child in my kids' program a member of Kol Shofar who had come to join his mother, an Israeli citizen, who was saving a seat for him inside. But, because he had been talking with me, he was threatened and ordered to leave too. His astonished 'But why are you telling me to leave?' was cut short by the same 'No more words' threat, which was directed at both of us and enforced with ominous encirclement by misused local police. Though my friend was utterly polite, quiet, and cooperative, as is his way, his dismay and severe disillusionment were perfectly obvious, so he was escorted all the way to his car by four police-officers, apparently trained in recognizing emotion. In contrast, I was trusted to walk to my car unescorted.
Another young friend of mine another of the best-loved and finest young men in Southern Marin, having also lived right here all his life arrived shortly after I left, expecting to see me at this 'time to listen, to learn, to speak, and to be changed.' Apparently my blonde young friend also failed to fit the preferred profile. Though cell-phones were used by various people at the event, my friend's call to me, to see if I had changed my plans, brought the same threats and violent ejection from our sadly misrepresented 'Jewish community.' (I trust you realize that total control over another person, when imposed by convincing threats of immediate violence, is properly called 'violence.')
Apparently, my other friend's Israeli mother fit the preferred profile, as she spoke on her cell-phone with her son when he failed to arrive as expected and she was not subjected to ethnic-cleansing.
This was clearly a case of an alien culture, with no concept of our constitutional principles, such as human equality and free speech, taking over a piece of local real-estate, and using our private-property laws and local police to enforce principles completely contradictory to American and local values.
Yet none of this was any inconvenience to my friends or me. As I said in my final words to the Kol Shofar people, 'This is all the information I could want.'
Though my friends, especially the Kol Shofar member, were stunned at this behavior, they found this experience corresponding all too well with what they have been seeing in the news about Gaza, their personal distress mere droplets in the ocean of horror which is ethnic-cleansing.
We had come to learn and be changed, and we certainly learned! I hope you will share in this windfall of insight.
The foremost victims of the behavior we experienced are the Jewish people, from whom the glaring truths of Zionist ethnic-cleansing so unchecked and thus ever more virulent and so essential to understanding the natural reasons for the world's increasing anger could not be hidden by anything less than the incredible behavior that was manifest at Kol Shofar.
As a secondary matter, if you and the JCRC were misrepresented in a false announcement, you might wish to take some action against the culprits. Or, if the horrific actuality of the Kol Shofar event belies your and the JCRC's good intentions using your lovely depiction to historically camouflage what was in fact an invasive, racist war-rally you will probably want to contact everyone to whom your announcement was sent, correct the record, apologize, and explain what steps you and the JCRC will be taking to repair the damage.
As for my friends and I, we greatly appreciate the announcement attributed to you, as our experience has been essential to understanding the problem of unchecked Zionism: if we had not tried to attend this event, the horrific realities just under the local surface, the near-end of what is happening in Gaza, would not have established themselves as important local history.
That manifest reality now adds to the burden of the extremists' growing and obviously desperate cover-up and must awaken those interested in peace for Israel and in service to the Jewish community and its relations with the general community.
The positive aspects of Zionism must not cause a blindness to its negative potentials or allow them to continue so unchecked as the world is seeing in Gaza and as we have now found violating our dear Tiburon neighborhood.
I hope you and the JCRC will take steps to represent the majority of the Jewish community, in its distance from very harmful misrepresentation by international Zionist extremism which manifested itself in Tiburon on Monday evening."
Dave's 'Corrective Letter'
Dear Ms. Berns,
I think you would wish to know that a serious misrepresentation was made and attributed to you and the Jewish Community Relations Council regarding the gathering at Kol Shofar at 7:30, on Monday, January 12.
I have copied the text of the announcement I received through the Marin Peace and Justice Coalition. [see above. Ed.]
Perhaps those words were not authorized by you and/or the JCRC, or perhaps they expressed a misapprehension.
In any case, the actual event proved to be the diametric opposite of what was described, and the effect was to create a disaster for Jewish community relations the scope of this 'disaster' determined only by the number of people who learn the truth or by the effectiveness of corrective efforts, perhaps by the JCRC.
I should add that this 'disaster for Jewish community relations' was also a valuable windfall of discovery for everyone who is actually 'praying for peace, working for justice.' While the error in the announcement of the Kol Shofar event drew people who would not otherwise have attended, there was no mistaking what we found what is actually going on in our community and the unacceptable realities call for a reassessment of the situation by all decent people, including you and the JCRC.
It is not so much a question of correcting an announcement, but rather an urgent need to correct misapprehensions about an illness in Zionism itself. What we have discovered is precisely the hostile and violent behavior, intruding into our dear neighborhoods at this local end, which correspond to the worst interpretations of the hostile and violent behavior we see expressed by the same organizations at the far end, in Palestine: where people don't enjoy the protections we still have here.
Within the event itself, one speaker said it was not intended as a dialogue or discussion (thus contradicting the announcement attributed to you), but merely as a gathering of a local 'congregation' at a time of crisis for the state of Israel.
The content of the speeches conspicuously overlooking the most obvious explanation: the extremist racism of forcing a 'Jewish' state and 'Jewish' dominion ever deeper into a multi-ethnic region was clearly meant to fool the local Jewish congregation into excessive fears of unjustified, insane violence and anti-Semitism. This deception would of course promote the alternate approach the extreme folly of seeking 'security' through ethnic supremacy, with all its intrinsic slaughter an approach which does, in the short run, produce enormous profits for opportunists calling themselves 'Zionists' and falsely posing as representatives of 'all Jews everywhere'.
The real effect of the Kol Shofar event was to trick decent, peace-loving Jewish people into overlooking what might very well be the best means of protecting Israel: encouraging reform toward Twentieth Century ideas of egalitarianism, instead of the time-dishonored strategy of ethnic dominion. The event organizers' utterly hostile attitude even toward a Jewish member of the Kol Shofar Congregation (who evidently did not quite fit their 'profile') demonstrated a mission of promoting the most racist kind of Zionism, quite to the detriment of ordinary Jewish people as well as everyone else who would never knowingly approve any such thing.
To various local residents, who were impressed by the announcement attributed to you but who were summarily deemed unfit for attendance, what actually transpired at Kol Shofar conveyed an unmistakable message: an exceedingly hostile takeover of our neighborhood and community by an alien culture that treats everyone else as less than subhuman. (In our neighborhood, people treat animals with more courtesy than we found in these mis-representatives of 'the Jewish community.') It became clear that the slightest variance from a narrow ethnic or cultural profile was sufficient cause for immediate threats of violence, misrepresented as the Jewish community's way of telling people they are not welcome.
This was not a question of 'security,' as perfectly polite local residents were shown no courtesy at all: there was no 'I'm sorry but we have to observe some strict security requirements': just terse orders to leave immediately, expressed with threats of immediate violent arrest if we hesitated or even said anything. The first impressions of thuggish, foreign-looking security-people in uniform dark suits and foreign accents could be brushed aside in our pluralistic society, but the natural premonitions proved unequal to the realities which soon appeared: a scene like a neighborhood house that has been taken over by mafia goons or crack-dealers who exhibit nothing but utter contempt for the surrounding community.
I, myself, have operated a children's center in Southern Marin for fifteen years; I am known to nearly everyone in our community, having been entrusted with many thousands of the local children, and I certainly do not exaggerate about gross violations of our decent traditional values belligerent, arrogant, invasive violations, the most extreme I have ever encountered anywhere.
I take every experience in a positive light, as a chance to learn something, and this experience provided a stunning but beautifully telling insight into attitudes which shed disconcerting light on the problem we thought we would be able to discuss in a civilized way: the dynamics behind the slaughter of 'non-Jewish' Palestinians, for the 'security' of an expressly 'Jewish' state relentlessly forcing its Zionist supremacy into a multi-ethnic region much as we have now found Kol Shofar (inadvertently?) doing to our decent, friendly neighborhood in Tiburon. It was all too easy to see: if we perfectly respectable neighbors of Kol Shofar and even a member of the Congregation could be summarily ejected with no word other than convincing threats of instant violence simply because we did not suit an incredibly arrogant ethnic profile it is very easy to see how this alien behavior would be applied to the Palestinians who are similarly deemed unfit for human treatment and, unlike us, have no protection at all, in the areas controlled by the same international organizations that show such hostile contempt for American values and the local community, right here in Tiburon.
If the conduct of the event-organizers does not coincide with what is going on in Gaza, why would local supporters of Israel's actions subject their negatively profiled neighbors to the most extreme version of such treatment that they can legally get away with? If we try to imagine what racist invaders of Palestine might look like, or what behavior we would expect of them, if any could be found here in Marin County, we would find our worst images precisely fitting the appearance and behavior that ruled at Kol Shofar on Monday evening.
It is very alarming that these people believe they can behave that way right here in Tiburon, in an incredibly arrogant sense of total impunity and perfect contempt for any concerns about the message this sends to everyone outside the preferred profile the vast majority of local residents."
Final radical commentary
Although overly lengthy for a standard internet article the import of Dave Kirsting's message is vital to gaining the required insight necessary for a full understanding of both the gravity of what has been occurring in Palestine over the past six decades and the reason why it has prevailed for such a disastrously and unacceptably long period.
Dave's thesis gives both form and substance to the undeniable fact that in order to fully comprehend the dynamics of political Zionism's imminent and deadly danger to the world at large we must frame it within its legitimate context that being the crucial recognition that political Zionism is, first and foremost, a racist ideology and a mindset or paradigm which can never peacefully co-exist with any other multi-ethnic, pluralistic society anywhere upon the face of the planet. As such it cannot be allowed to continue in present form. This demands the dismantling of its fundamental ideological infrastructure for the good of the rest of humanity. If such actions do not occur within a reasonable amount of time the result may be a terminal state of chaos and destruction well beyond the already unacceptable levels we're now witnessing in war-ravaged Gaza.
As the suffering and dying continues and the horror and shock of the last twenty days of genocide casts its long and dark shadow over our world this issue of Jewish racism screams out, like the cries of the Gazan victims of Israeli genocide, for universal recognition and amelioration. For the sake of all mankind we must work to ensure the knowledge of what Dave tells us spreads across the net and into the hearts and minds of peace-loving people everywhere.
Thank you Dave Kirsting for bringing your perspictive forth. Your contribution to Life and Peace is sincerely appreciated.

12 - A Critique Of Zionism
Apologist David Grossman
By Gilad Atzmon
The world, so it seems, is giving a standing ovation to the new Israeli orator, the author, David Grossman. Israel's public relations desperately needs a righteous intellectual, an author who `talks peace', a man who preaches `reconciliation', a man of shalom . Yesterday the Guardian published Grossman's last week speech at the Yitzchak Rabin memorial in Tel Aviv.
Grossman is a `matured enlightened Israeli', a light left Zionist who craves for a change. I read Grossman's speech, and I must say that though the man is seen by some as an Israeli left intellectual, I see in his speech nothing but hard core Jewish supremacy and even maintenance of the old crude Zionist racial agenda. Grossman, like other Israelis, is totally submerged within a Zio-centric chauvinist discourse, a discourse of denial of the Palestinian cause; i.e., the right of return
I have collected and highlighted some outrageous extracts made by the newly emerging Hebraic left orator.
Grossman And The Myth Of `Jewish Universal Values'
Grossman, the Israeli some of us love to love, serves us with a major glimpse into the Zionist secular mind. "I am", so he says about himself "a man entirely without religious faith". However, Grossman doesn't stop just there. "For me, the establishment - and very existence - of the state of Israel is something of a miracle that happened to us as a people; a political, national, human miracle." And I ask myself, since when do secular beings believe in miracles? One may have to remind the `Israeli secular intellectual' that a miracle is `an effect or extraordinary event in the physical world that surpasses all known human or natural powers and is ascribed to a supernatural cause'. Indeed, Grossman, like many other Israelis, has managed to follow a new form of secularism. It is an atheism that `ascribes to some supernatural cause'. Bizarrely enough, the Zionist seculars are pretty fundamentally orthodox about their new pathetic religion. I may help Grossman and suggest to him that there is no real truly heroic miracle about Israel. Israel is just a vulgar racist ultra nationalist state. Israel's relative success seems miraculous just because it took its Arab neighbors a few generations to adapt to the level of Zionist barbarism.
According to Grossman, Israel wasted that `miracle', that "great and rare opportunity that history granted it, the opportunity to create an enlightened, properly functioning democratic state that would act in accordance with Jewish and universal values."
Following Grossman's glimpse into the Jewish spirit, enlightenment and democracy are foreign to Jews and their occurrence within the Jewish sphere should be realised as a miracle. Probably without realizing Grossman admits here that `enlightenment' and `democracy' oppose the Jewish spirit. Certainly, this intellectual current is not new, neither is it original. The early waves of Zionist ideologists believed that in Zion, a new Jew would emerge: a civilized, secular, democratic and enlightened Jew who rebels against his morally degenerate Diaspora ancestor.
More worryingly, Grossman bluntly deceives his listeners by referring to `Jewish universal values' as if such values are nothing but an accepted common knowledge. As bizarre it may seem to some, there is no general accepted set of `Jewish universal values'. Is there a book that presents a notion `Jewish universal values'? I don't think so. If there is a set of values that should be realised as `Jewish universal values', those are properly conveyed by the Judaic core. I believe that Torah Jews who genuinely support the Palestinian cause may know something about universal values. Yet, Grossman portrays himself as a secular man. Surely it isn't the Judaic orthodox interpretation he thinks of to when referring to Jewish universality. In fact, it is Christianity that translates Judaism into a universal value system. It is Christianity that transforms the `neighbor' into a `universal other'. Without a doubt, there are plenty of universal humanists who happen to be Jewish by origin, Yet there is no recognized set of `Jewish universal values'. Grossman and other Jewish intellectuals who spread the myth of `Jewish universalism' are deceiving themselves and their listeners. Moreover, the fact that Jewish secularism lacks a philosophical background may explain the general moral bankruptcy of the Jewish state. As we will read soon, even Grossman, himself, falls into the same trap. He may be aware of the concept of morality but he fails in presenting a consistent moral worldview. He may be aware of the negative effect of racism but he, himself, manages to fall into supremacist bigotry rather easily.
Grossman The Blunt Racist
Grossman is courageous enough to stand up and admit that "violence and racism" has taken control of his home, Israel. So far so good. For a second I tend to believe that Grossman is indeed an enlightened anti racist secular Jew but then, just a sentence later he asks, "how can it be that a people with our powers of creativity and regeneration" has managed to finds itself today "in such a feeble, helpless state"? The critical reader may ask oneself what really Grossman refers to when he says "people with our powers of creativity and regeneration"? It is rather simple. Grossman truly believes in the uniqueness of the chosen people. In other words, Grossman is not more than a biological determinist. The question to be asked here is how come the Guardian dedicates three pages to a Jewish supremacist? I believe that Jews do enjoy some freedoms the rest of humanity lack. For instance, I find it hard to believe that the Guardian would give a voice to a German philosopher who praises Aryan people's `powers of creativity and regeneration'. Somehow, a Jew intellectual can get away doing just that.
Although Grossman is honest enough to admit that the Palestinians have placed Hamas in their leadership, he calls Olmert to "appeal to the Palestinians. over Hamas's head. Appeal to the moderates among them, to those who, like you and me, oppose Hamas and its ideology".
Mr. Grossman, if you are indeed a universal humanist, something I obviously suspect, you then better learn to listen to the Hamas rather than speaking to the Palestinians over their elected leader's heads. Grossman obviously fail to respect his neighbor, he fails to respect their democratic choice. Generally speaking, I suggest that we leave the despicable method of speaking over heads to Bush and Blair. Intellectuals have the privilege to listen and to act ethically.
Grossman the Victim
But Grossman's Jewish chutzpah doesn't stop just there. "Look at the Palestinians, just once" he tells Olmert. "You will see a people no less tortured than we are." Yes, this isn't a joke. Grossman, the colonialist Jew who dwells on Palestinian occupied land while practicing ethnic cleansing of an indigenous nation, is looking at the Palestinian terrorised victims while saying `they are almost as tortured as me'.
This probably says it all. It summarizes the level of the Zio-left blindness. Indeed, if these are the Israeli leftists, who need Right?
Indeed, in his concluding paragraph Grossman admits: "The differences between right and left are not that great today". He is correct. Within the European political discourse, Grossman, the Israeli left intellectual icon, is no other than a banal right wing neocon. A man who preaches racism in the name of good will. A man who talks over the heads of other people.
Grossman and the Two State Solution
Grossman is deceiving himself and his listeners by saying that "the land will be divided, that there will be a Palestinian state". You are partially wrong, Mr. Grossman. This land will never be divided. I will make it very simple so you and your very few Zio leftists may realise once and for all. Palestine is a land, Israel is a state. Palestine will always be Palestine; i.e., a land. Israel, on the other hand. is a racist nationalist state and will disappear. The land won't be divided. It will re-unite into One Palestine. Rather than maintaining a racist nationalist state I call Grossman and his friends to join the one Palestine movement. A movement that endorses equality in the land of Palestine. Palestine where values are universal.
Some observations from a neutral party. First of all I agree with you peace is good, but your approach leaves something lacking which makes peace impossible.
>>Palestinians placed at their head Hamas, which refuses to negotiate with us or even recognize us. What can we do in such a situation? << isn't it obvious? Give them their stolen property back, apologize, give them compensation for pain and suffering, and give them equal rights in a democracy of the residents of the land. Duh. >>Of course, also the Palestinians share in the blame for this deadlock. Of course, they too have a great share in the failure of the peace process. But look at them just for a second with a different look. Look not only at the extremists among them. Not only at those who share an interest with our extremists. Look at the overwhelming majority of that miserable people, whose fate is inextricably tied to ours, whether or not we want it.
What blame? You people stole their property. Anything they do is justified at this point. It is YOUR responsibility to admit that they have every right to kill you. Only then can you plead for mercy and ask for forgiveness. What else do you plan to do and say you want peace??
Who are you calling "miserable" - Palestinians - barring what you have done to them - are the happiest people on earth. They are not genetically miserable. You are racists. Murderers.
>>Give them an offer which will place them in a real dilemma between accepting it and becoming the hostages of the most fanatic brand of Islam.
God does not make anyone a hostage. "Israel" made the Palestinian people hostage. It is up to You to repudiate the existence of Israel which is anti-God. Stop blaming Islam and God. Who do you think you are, anti-Islam bigots? Then get out of the Middle East, you morons.
>> You suspect the Syrian president - present him with such conditions as will uncover any plot. Offer a peace process which will last several years, and only at its conclusion, and if he fulfills all conditions, would he get back the Golan. (Clapping, but less strong than earlier).
This is the dead give-away. How dare you present the Syrian president with CONDITIONS? You need to present him with a deep sincere apology or your peace is a load of crap. Syria does not owe you anything. How dare you suggest such an insolent, arrogant, warlike request? You should be so ashamed of yourselves. Why don't you just return to Europe?

Peace of no choice by Adam Keller The Other Israel
Saturday, November 4. The year's most bloody weekend. The Palestinian death toll at beleaguered Beit Hanoun creeps higher and higher up with every news bulletin. In the afternoon a twelve-year old girl is reported killed from a direct shot to the head by an Israeli army sniper. "The sniper thought it was an armed militant" says a perfunctory apology from the military spokesman's office. The killing goes on.
The man in charge (at least nominally) of this rampaging military juggernaut is Amir Peretz, Labour Party leader and Defence Minister of Israel. Precisely a year ago, it was Amir Peretz who mounted the stage at the annual Rabin Memorial - to anoint himself Rabin's successor and speak of his dream that "One day, Israeli and Palestinain children will play together in the no-man's-land between Israel and the Gaza Strip"...
Wisely, the organizers of this year's commemoration took a blanket decision to have no politicians at all among the speakers. This exclusion of Peretz may well have saved him from being greeted by prolonged whistles and catcalls from those who have a good reason to feel cheated.
Peace groups decided to make the Rabin Rally a starting point for their month long Gaza campaign, against the siege and carnage. At 7.00 dozens of volunteers were assembled at the edge of the Rabin Square, with Jana Kanapova of the Women's Peace Coalition energetically coordinating the preparations. A big helium canister was brought to fill an enormous lot of black ballons with the inscription "SOS Gaza"; yellow jackets had been collected from car owners to make the planned human chain more conspicuous,and packages of stickers contained the message "Gaza - Open the Siege, Stop the War" - the logo of barbed wire turning into an olive branch.
These were distributed to the youngsters who started to arrive at the spot, together with the brochure with answers to "Frequently asked questions on Gaza. (What did we get of leaving Gaza? Nothing, because we did it unilaterally, without a negotiated agreement which could have prevented the shooting of missiles. And anyway, we did not really leave, Israel controls all the passages in and out of the Strip. Why should I care what happens to the Palestinians? If you enclose your neighbors in a big prison and starve them, you create a powder keg which will explode in your own face!")
Other groups and movements also arrived, with a big medley of stickers, leaflets, brochures, balloons, signs and the blue ribbons remembered from last year struggle on the Sharon disengagement... The Peace Now blue and black placards read "Olmert and Peretz - you have abandoned his way!" ( a bit unfair, as Olmert never claimed to be a Rabin follower... ). Meretz, in green on white, had: "Rabin, we are with you - Labour is with Lieberman!".
The entry of arch-racist Avigdor Lieberman to the government, with Labour concurrence, was also the subject of a Hadash leaflet, and of various hand-made signs carried by a group of youngsters unaffiliated with any organization.
Supporters of the Geneva Initiative distributed their maps for "mutual minor territorial exchanges between Israel and Palestine" and the "One Voice" placards asked "What are YOU willing to do in order to end the conflict?", and "The Fifth Mother" had "Only dialogue can bring good neighborliness" .
The "Studying and Working Youth", like every year present in massive blue-shirted contingents, made the solemn pledge: "We will neither forget nor forgive those who incited, hated beyond measure, harmed democracy and did all they could to prevent any chance for living in peace, among ourselves and with our neighbors. We vow to continue ever onwards on the way of Yitzchak Rabin, who was murdered because of his striving for peace".
Meanwhile, members of the Gay Community were mobilizing support for their controversial Jerusalem Gay Pride March ("If you believe in a liberal, open and tolerant Jerusalem, come and march with us"), supported by the militants of "Socialist Struggle" ("The Knesset Members' and police's opposition to the march shows the inherent homophobia of the establishment. Wide social solidarity must be mobilized!"). And Tzedek (Justice) made an urgent appeal: "The new government budget imposes new cuts in the welfare, education and health budgets, Tens of thousands more children will be pushed under the poverty line. Come with us tomorrow evening, to protest outside the Finance Minster's home, to voice the outcry of the hungry children". And the animal rights groups were there, too: "If you eat meat, you should know that your meal had wanted to live, just as much as you want to live!".
Suddenly, out of the powerful loudspeakers, the recorded voice of Rabin - speaking from this same podium eleven years ago, strong and confident and having no idea it was the last day of his life: "I have been a military man. I fought when fighting was necessary. But when the chance for peace comes, you must take it. And the chance is real, peace is possible!". Words which were a bit banal at the time, at the heyday of Oslo, assuming greater retrospective significance after years when belief in the very possibility of peace had waned.
Then, well-known artists go up to sing, one by one - some songs with politically significant words, others which have become in a way hallowed by being sung here every year.
Meanwhile, the Gush Shalom sticker "Talk to Hamas!" led to quite some debates. Some took it up enthusiastically, others with an embarrassed smile, but there was also quite a few opponents, also in this milieu: "Why? They are extremists, terrorists!" "Do you see on the side of the sticker: 'Peace is made with the enemy'. This is what Rabin said, for whose sake we came here". "But they are so reactionary!" "And what about our government? Are they progressives? Let our reactionaries talk to theirs!".
Suddenly, a hush. The writer David Grossman got up to deliver the keynote (in fact, virtually the only) speech, which would be broadcast live on radio and TV.
Grossman had been much in the limelight recently. He had supported the Second Lebanon War at its inception, but later turned around and made a dramatic call for ceasefire, which the government ignored - and in the last battle of the war his own son was killed.
"There was a war. Israel exerted a powerful military muscle - but exposed fragility and shortcoming. We found that after all the military might in our hands cannot in itself ensure our survival. Especially, we discovered that Israel is in a deep crisis, far deeper than we guessed, a crisis touching all spheres of our life.
I am talking as one whose love for this country is a difficult and complicated love, and still unequivocal, and as one whose alliance with this country has been horribly sealed in blood. I am a completely secular person, and still for me the creation - and very existence - of Israel is a miracle. A miracle which happened to us as a people, a political, national, human miracle. I don't forget that for a single moment, even when many things in the reality of our life revolt and depress me, even when the miracle is changed into the small change of routine and squalor, of corruption and cynicism. Even when reality looks like a bad parody of the miracle, I always remember.
"Look, land, how wasteful we have been" wrote the poet Tchernichovsky in 1938. He mourned the fact that again and again we commit to the soil of this country young people in the very prime of their life.
The death of young people is a terrible waste. But just as terrible is the feeling that for many years already, Israel is wasting not only the lives of her sons but the miraculous opportunity which was given to her - the rare opportunity granted by history to create here an enlightened democratic state, conducted according to Jewish and Universal values. A state which would give Jews not only a refuge but also a new meaning for their lives. A state which would regard its Jewish identity and Jewish ethos as inextricably involving respect and complete equality of its non-Jewish citizens. And look what happened! (Loud Clapping and cheers).
Look what happened to the young, daring country which was here, full of the a flaming spirit. How, as in an accelerated process of aging, Israel jumped from the stage of vivid youth directly to a feeling of frustrated angry old age. When did this happen? When did we lose the feeling that there could ever be a different life fro us, a better life? How can we still stand aside and look, as if hypnotized, at the madness and roughness, violence and racism taking over our home?
I ask you, how is it that a people with such powers of recuperation and creation as ours, a people which rose like a phoenix from the ashes time after time, finds itself - exactly when it possesses such an overwhelming military power - so frail and helpless? How did our people become a victim again - but this time its own victim, the victim of its anxieties and despair, of its own shortsightedness? One of the most terrible results of the last war was to increase the feeling that there is no king in Israel, no leadership. Our leadership is hollow - the political and military leadership both. I don't now talk only of the obvious fiascos of the war, of the big and small corruption scandals. I am talking about the fact that the people who now lead Israel can offer nothing more than anxiety on the one hand and intimidation on the other. The cheap fascination of naked power, and the wink of crooked deals. It seems that the vision of those who lead extends no further than the next newspaper headline, or the next interrogation by the Attorney-General.
Mr. Prime Minister, you would not be able to say that I was overcome with grief and in this way dismiss what I have to say to you. Of course I feel grief. I feel pain for this country and what you and your friends are doing to it. Believe me: your success is important to me, because the future of all of us depends on your ability to really act.
Yitzchak Rabin did not take the road of peace with the Palestinians because he felt great affection for them or for the leader they then had. As you may remember, also then the general feeling was that we don't have a partner. Rabin decided to take action because he decided, with great wisdom, that Israeli society could not endure long in a situation of unsolved conflict. He understood, long before many others, that life in a permanent atmosphere of violence, of occupation, of terror and anxiety and hopelessness, such a life is exacting an unpayable exorbitant price.
All these things are still true today. Today, they are more sharp and urgent. Before talking of the [Palestinian] partner we have or haven't, let us take a look at ourselves.
For more than a hundred years already we live in a conflict. We, the citizens of this conflict, were born into a war, and educated in it, and in a certain way programmed by it. That's perhaps why we sometimes think that this madness, in which we live for hundred years already, is the one and only real thing. That this is the only life destined for us, that we have no possibility, nor even a right, to seek a new life: by the sword shall we live and by the sword shall we die, forevermore.
Perhaps that is the reason for the indifference with which we accept the total absence of any peace process, an absence which lasts more and more years and exacts ever more victims. That might also explain the lack of reaction by most of us to the blow delivered to democracy when Avigdor Lieberman was appointed a senior minister, a proven pyromaniac appointed to head the fire brigade! (Prolonged clapping)
That might be part of the reason why in such a short time the state of Israel degenerated into a cruel indifference towards the weak, the poor and suffering. This indifference towards the fate of hungry people, of old people, of the ill and handicapped; the indifference to the trade in women for enforced prostitution and the exploitation of migrant workers in conditions of virtual slavery; and the deep institutionalized racism towards the Arab minority. All these things happen here with a complete naturalness, causing no shock and no protest. I am beginning to fear that even if peace comes tomorrow, even if we ever return to some kind of normalcy, perhaps we already missed the opportunity for complete recovery.
The disaster which happened to my family and me, with the fall of our son Uri, does not give me any special privileged position in the public debate. But it seems to me that facing death and loss does carry some kind of clarity and sobriety, at least as regards the distinction between important things and unimportant ones. Between what can can be achieved and what cannot be. Between reality and illusion.
Nowadays, every clear-headed person in Israel - and let me add, also in Palestine - knows precisely the outline of a possible solution to the conflict between the two peoples. Every clearheaded person, among us as among them, knows in the depth of the heart the difference between dreams and wishes and between what can be achieved at the end of negotiations. And anybody who does not know it - be they Jews or Arabs - is already now not a partner. Such people are trapped in a hermetic fanatism, and therefore they are not partners. Let us look for a moment at these who are supposed to be our partners. The Palestinians placed at their head Hamas, which refuses to negotiate with us or even recognize us. What can we do in such a situation? To go on strangling them, more and more? To go on killing hundreds of Palestinians in Gaza, most of them innocent civilians just like us?
Address the Palestinians, Mr. Olmert. address them over the head of Hamas. Address the moderates among them, those who like you and me oppose the Hamas and its way. Address the Palestinian people. Speak to their deep wound, recognize their prolonged suffering. This will detract nothing from your position, from Israel's negotiating position in future negotiations. It will just open the hearts a bit to each other, and this opening will have enormous power. Simple human compassion can have the power of a force of nature, exactly in situation of deadlock and hatred.
Just for once, don't look at them through gunsights or across the closed chekpoint. Just look, and you will see a people no less tortured than us. Of course, also the Palestinians share in the blame for this deadlock. Of course, they too have a great share in the failure of the peace process. But look at them just for a second with a different look. Look not only at the extremists among them. Not only at those who share an interest with our extremists. Look at the overwhelming majority of that miserable people, whose fate is inextricably tied to ours, whether or not we want it.
Go to the Palestinians, Mr. Olmert. Stop looking for reasons and excuses not to talk to them. You have given up the unilateral "convergence", and it is well that you did it. But don't leave a vacuum. A vacuum will immediately fill with violence and destruction.
Talk to them.Make them an offer which the moderates among them could accept (and there are more of them than what the media shows us). Give them an offer which will place them in a real dilemma between accepting it and becoming the hostages of the most fanatic brand of Islam. Come to them with the most brave and serious plan which Israel can offer, With the proposal which every clear-eyed Israeli and Palestinian knows to be the limit of concession and the limit of refusal,ours and theirs. If you delay, it will not be long before we start missing the amateurishness of Palestinian terrorism. We will hit our heads in remorse and cry out, why did we not use our mental flexibility, our Israeli creativity, in order to extract our enemies from their self-made trap.
There is peace of no choice. Just like there is a war of no choice, there is a peace of no choice, because really there is no other choice left - not to us and not to them. And a peace of no choice should. be waged with as much creativity and determination as a war of no choice. There is no other choice. Those who think that there is another choice, that time is on our side, don't comprehend the deep processes in whose midst we already are.
By the way, Mr. Prime Minister, perhaps I need to remind you that when an Arab leader sends a peace signal- even the lightest and most hesitant - you have to respond. You must check immediately how serious he is. You have no moral right to ignore such a signal. You owe it to those from whom you will ask to sacrifice their lives if another war breaks out. So, if President Assad says that Syria wants peace, even if you don't believe him -and we all suspect him - you must offer to meet him the same day. (Clapping, Peace now activists distribute stickers reading "Assad is waiting for Olmert" and "Abu Mazen is waiting for Olmert".)
Don't wait even one day. When you went into the last war you did not wait even for an hour. You charged right ahead, with all weapons. With all the destructive might. Why, when there is a glimmering of peace,do you immediately reject and erode it? Wat have you got to lose? You suspect the Syrian president - present him with such conditions as will uncover any plot. Offer a peace process which will last several years, and only at its conclusion, and if he fulfills all conditions, would he get back the Golan. (Clapping, but less strong than earlier). Oblige him to a process of prolonged dialogue. Make this possibility known to his people, help the moderates which surely exist also there. Try to shape reality, not just be its slave. That's what you were elected for, exactly that.
And to conclude: Of course, not everything is up to us.There are big and strong forces which act in the world and the region, and some of them - like Iran, like extreme Islam -work against us. And still,so much depends on what we will do, and on what we will be. The differences of opinion between Left and Right are in fact not that big any more.The decisive majority of Israel's citizens already understands - though some of them without much enthusiasm - how the outline of the solution to the conflict will look like. Most of us understand that the land will be divided, that a Palestinian state will arise. Why, therefore, are we continuing this internal bickering which has already gone on for nearly forty years? Why is our political.leadership continuing to reflect the positions of the extremists, and not of the majority of the public? Is it not clear that out position will be much better if we reach this national agreement by ourselves, rather than be forced to it by circumstances - external pressure, or a new intifada, or another war? If we do this, we will save ourselves years of bloodshed, of unnecessary bloodshed. Years of a terrible mistake.
From where I now stand I request, call upon anybody who listens to me - to the young people who came back from the war, and who know that they will have to pay the price of the next war; to Jewish and Arab citizens, to leftists and rightists: stop for a moment. Look at the edge of the abyss, think of how close we are to losing all that we have created here. Ask yourself if the time has not come to break out of the paralysis and at long last demand for ourselves the kind of life which we deserve to live.
Very very long and loud applause throughout the vast square. A feeling of revelation, even for those who disagreed on specific points. As we read on the following day's paper, the Labour Party leaders - who were seated at the stage, though not given access to the microphone - did not share in the enthusiasm, but werre rather shocked and angry; Peretz went away immediately when Grossman was done.
For the rest of us the politicians had deservedly been exposed, and the force manifested in these hundred thousand people crowded in the square and listening to their "prophet on the dais" created a rare moment of hope.
(The media were also impressed; again and again were parts of Grossman's speech broadcast, and Yediot Aharonot printed it in full, of which we made use for this translation.)
13 - Seventh Annual Israeli Anti-Apartheid Week
By Stephen Lendman
The web site apartheidweek.com announced it in over 60 cities worldwide, including:
Adelaide, Al Quds, Amman, Amsterdam, Bard (NY), Basel, Beirut, Belfast, Berkeley, Bern, Bethlehem, Bilbao, Birzeit, Bordeaux, Boston, Brisbane, Brussels, Cape Town, Cleveland, Denver, Dublin, Dundee, Durban, Edmonton, Gainesville, Gaza, Geneva, Grahamstown, Haifa, Houston, Ireland, Johannesburg, La Chaux-de-Fonds, Le Mans, Lille, Lillehammer, London (Ontario), Lyon, Melbourne, Mexico City, Miami, Midwest, Montreal, Nablus, Naples, Nazereth, Neuchatel, New York, Ottawa, Paris, Perth, Peterborough, Port Elizabeth, Pretoria, Providence, Regina, St. Louis, Stellenbosch, Sudbury, Toronto, Utrecht, Yaffa, and Zurich.
Other cities not officially part of IAW may also participate, including major ones involved before.
Launched in Toronto in 2005 by over 170 Palestinian civil society organizations, it's held annually to support calls for Global Boycotts, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) until Occupied Palestine is free.
Last year's IAW was "incredibly successful" with over 55 participating cities worldwide. Planned again are lectures, multimedia events, films, cultural performances, demonstrations, and other actions to highlight successes and injustices that make BDS efforts crucial to end Israeli occupation and apartheid. Each city has its own schedule and speakers. Organizers urge everyone this year to join the anti-apartheid struggle for justice, equality and peace.
Supporters call IAW an expression of Palestinian solidarity, a call to boycott, divest and impose sanctions, and demand Israel be held accountable for decades of oppressive occupation, imperial wars, lawlessness, expropriating Palestinian land, denying self-determination, the right of return, targeted killings, torture, illegal arrests and incarcerations, and denying social, political and economic justice and equality, including for Israeli Arabs.
Because of IAW's popularity, greater flexibility this year will accommodate campuses, organizations, cities and regions on different schedules to participate more conveniently:
-- Globally from March 7 - 20;
-- In Britain from March 21 - 26.
Background on the Initiative
Recent years have seen significantly more literature and analysis, documenting and challenging Israeli apartheid, including reports by international organizations and human rights groups in solidarity with Palestine's liberating struggle. Prominent Palestinians, anti-Zionist Jews, and South Africans have participated actively in the campaign.
So does the Coalition Against Israeli Apartheid (CAIA), "a network of concerned individuals and organizations working to end this" grave injustice. Formed in January 2006, it calls Israel an apartheid state, resembling South Africa in the 1980s and earlier. America and Western governments provide political, economic and military support. Ending it is crucial to liberating Palestine.
CAIA and IAW support peace, nonviolence, BDS momentum, freeing Gaza, ending occupation, Palestinian self-determination, full equality for Israeli Arabs, dismantling the Separation Wall, returning Golan to Syria, and letting diaspora refugees come home or be fully compensated for their loss if they wish.
Apartheid Under International Law
In February 2010, Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak said:
"As long as in this territory west of the Jordan River there is only one political entity called Israel, it is going to be either non-Jewish or non-democratic....If this bloc of millions of Palestinians cannot vote (or if doing so is meaningless), that will be an apartheid state."
In November 2007, former Prime Minister Ehud Olmert said:
"If the day comes when the two-state solution collapses, and we face a South African-style struggle for equal voting rights (including for Occupied Palestinians), then, as soon as that happens, the State of Israel is finished."
In December 2006, discussing his book, "Palestine: Peace Not Apartheid," Jimmy Carter called it worse than South Africa's in comments Israel Radio aired. On December 9, 2006, he told Canada's CBC:
Israel's policy of occupation and separation perpetuates "worse....apartheid than we witnessed in South Africa." He hoped his book would stimulate debate. "There's never been (any) on this issue of any significance. Israel will never have peace until they agree to" end occupation and grant Palestinians self-determination.
On November 8, 2009, Haaretz writer Yitzhak Laor headlined, "Israel's apartheid is worse than South Africa's," saying:
"The system preserving this apartheid is more ruthless as it is equipped with the lie of being 'temporary.' " A rigid legal system perpetuates it. Decades of Palestinian suffering show the challenge of achieving change. Yet international law is clear and unequivocal.
Article 7(1)(j) of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court calls apartheid a crime, stating:
"For the purpose of this Statute, (a) 'crime against humanity' means any of the following acts when committed as part of a widespread or systematic attack directed against any civilian population, with knowledge of the attack:
The crime of apartheid" includes murder, extermination, enslavement, torture, arbitrary arrest, illegal imprisonment, denial of the right to life and liberty, cruel, inhuman and degrading treatment, and other abusive acts imposed by one group on another.
Racist Zionist exclusivism is key to understanding Israeli policy. It flaunts Judaic values. It's extremist, undemocratic and hateful. It denies non-Jews equal rights, claims Jewish supremacy, specialness and uniqueness, eschews peace and reconciliation, chooses confrontation over diplomacy, believes in strength through belligerence and intimidation, and threatens Jews and non-Jews alike as a result.
Under it, apartheid flourishes by separating indigenous Palestinians from their land and heritage.
Yet Fourth Geneva's Article 49 states:
"Individual or mass forcible transfers, as well as deportation of protected persons from occupied territory to the territory of the Occupying Power or to that of any other country, occupied or not, are prohibited, regardless of the motive." Neither shall "The Occupying Power....deport or transfer parts of its own civilian population into the territory it occupies."
The Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid (the Apartheid Convention) defines it as:
"similar policies and practices of racial segregation and discrimination as practiced in southern Africa (for) the purpose of establishing and maintaining domination by one racial group of persons over any other racial group of persons and systematically oppressing them."
Apartheid is the worst form of racism. Israel's militarized occupation is the worst form of apartheid, incorporating state terrorism, belligerent incursions, land theft, home demolitions, dispossessions, targeted assassinations, mass arrests, torture, destruction of property and agricultural lands, genocide and isolation, its worst form in besieged Gaza.
The Convention on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination defines it as:
"any distinction, exclusion, restriction or preference based on race, color, descent, or national or ethnic origin which has the purpose or effect of nullifying or impairing the recognition, enjoyment or exercise, on an equal footing, of human rights and fundamental freedoms in the political, economic, social, cultural or any other field of public life."
The 1977 Additional Protocol to the Geneva Conventions (Protocol I) includes among other grave breaches:
"practices of apartheid and other inhuman and degrading practices involving outrages upon personal dignity, based on racial discrimination."
Besieged Gaza Calls for the Largest Ever IAW
On February 13, Gazan students, artists, intellectuals, teachers, activists, and others "urge(d) international solidarity groups and individuals....create a week of action against Israeli Apartheid, as well as support for BDS campaigns globally. After last year's successful event, they're organizing their own Apartheid Week activities, including offering to connect through Skype video conferences and radio interviews, breaching Gaza's siege electronically.
Now's the time they say to highlight Israeli barbarity to enlist greater than ever support for liberation. "How long must we, Palestinians in Gaza, be told that it's okay for us to live under a medieval siege of our land, air and sea?" How long must their suffering continue, while they "await more massacres, more land confiscation, more imprisonment, and more racist subjugation....The sooner and more powerfully we act, the" sooner Palestinians will enjoy "the same human rights as anyone else, instead of this life of captivity, humiliation, shattered dreams," and daily misery. Achieving change "is up to us" with your help.
A Final Comment
Annually, IAW events are planned globally in dozens of cities, including on campuses and other sites as part of a campaign to promote BDS initiatives and delegitimize Israel, exposing it as a racist apartheid state, one doomed to fail like South Africa. The more global participation grows, the sooner that day will arrive. It's not a question of if. It's when Palestinians are again free. For them and supporters worldwide, it can't come a moment too soon.

14 - Children Of A Lesser God
By Israel Shamir
In Berlin, the high and mighty including U.S. Secretary of State Colin Powell, German President Johannes Rau and Israel's president, Moshe Katsav gathered for a Conference of the Organization for Security and Co-operation in Europe (OSCE) dedicated to the struggle against anti-Semitism. They proclaimed that "the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is serving as a cover for worldwide anti-Semitic sentiment" as Haaretz reported today. I was not invited to this gathering, but if I were, I would present them with the following talk...
Your Excellencies, this conference is indeed an extremely important, historic event, to be compared with Constantine's Edict of Milan or with crucial Councils of the Church. I am not sure that all of you fully understand what you did, what is the meaning of the code-words 'Struggle against antisemitism'.
Let us say first what it is NOT. 'Struggle against antisemitism' is not defencing of a small persecuted nation; if it would, you were to defend the besieged Palestinians. It is not struggle against racism, for you defend racist apartheid in Palestine. It is not struggle against anti-Jewish discrimination, for there is none, and from Moscow to Paris to New York Jews occupy the very pinnacle of power. It is not defence of Jewish life, for the only Jew wounded in Europe cut himself with his kitchen knife while trying to incriminate a Muslim. It is not defence of Jewish property, for Jews are the only people on earth who regained every piece of property their ancestors ever owned from Berlin to Baghdad. It has nothing to do with long-dead historic antisemitism, anti-Jewish racial theory, for there are Semites and descendents of Jews on both sides of the battle.
'Struggle against antisemitism' is a theological concept, related to the centuries-old question: "Are all people equal, equally important and equally close to God; or are the Jews a cut above, while the rest are children of a lesser God?" The first proposition was affirmed by St Paul, the second was the banner of Caiaphas. Today you gave your answer to the question, and, like Pontius Pilate in his time, you preferred Caiaphas. Today you proclaimed that the Judaic ideas and values are the foundation stone of the New World Order you are committed to uphold.
It does not matter that the Palestinians are being immured alive behind the 25-foot concrete wall; that the olive groves are erased and wells demolished; what is important that "Israel or its leaders should not be demonized or villainized" in words of your colleague Colin Powell. It is not a question of policy anymore, but of theology, for belief in Jewish superiority is the official faith of Pax Americana, like Christianity was that of the Roman Empire in the days of Constantine the Great. To stress the point, you forbade using Nazi symbols in conjecture with Israeli policies, but allowed superimposing Swastika of Hitler onto the Cross of Christ.
Probably you consider yourselves 'realists and pragmatists' who care little for this religious mumbo-jumbo. If you were realists and pragmatists, you would consider what this acceptance of Jewish superiority means for YOU, if you do not care for Palestinians or Iraqis. I open the Jerusalem Post of 22.04.04, and read the words of your new superiors:
"My problem is not only with Germany. It is with everything German, anywhere. I neither argue nor get upset. I have simply wiped Germany and its people off my globe", - writes Matti Golan, the former editor-in-chief of the leading Israeli newspaper Haaretz and of the Globes, the paper for the Jewish economic elites. Matti Golan is not a firebrand; he is not one of Jewish religious fanatics who deny goyim even descent from Adam. Indeed, I could fill hundreds of pages with similar - and worse - quotes from Khabbad books or Cabbala wizards. But Golan is not a Cabbalist and extremist but one of the sane, non-religious mainstream influential Jewish intellectuals. When this article was discussed on IsraelForum.com in the internet, a typical Jewish response was this: "Matti Golan is a prominent journalist and columnist. He represents ideas held by the vast majority of Israeli Jews in this subject. My opinion included." If I were a German, I would have second thoughts before providing Matti Golan's country with nuclear-capable submarines lest he will 'simply wipe Germany and its people off our globe'.
In my view, Golan sounded a call for racist hatred and genocide. You could discuss it; but you would rather condemn Mahathir, or a peace activist who fights for equality in Palestine. Your colleague German President Johannes Rau said: "Everyone knows that massive anti-Semitism is behind criticism of the Israeli government's politics over the last decades". He said it a week after a four-year-old Asma suffocated of Israeli tear gas inside her room in Gaza on 23.04.04, a year after Rachel Corrie was crushed by Israeli bulldozer. Thus, whoever says 'antisemitism' agrees with murder of Asma and Rachel.
You cause contempt, and it is dangerous for you. In a mass-circulation Israeli daily Maariv (24.04.04), Dan Margalit, a superstar of Israeli journalism, writes of the man who tried to warn you of the grave danger of Israeli nuclear potential:
"Vanunu posed himself as suffering Mel Gibson, a new Jesus, who suffers in jail for his conversion to Christianity. I must admit he was discriminated on the religious grounds, but positively discriminated. Vanunu remained alive for his treason, spying and baptism notwithstanding, Israel treated him as a Jew. Everyone knows what the Israeli Mossad would do to him if he were a German nuclear technician on a service of an Arab state - The names of those sorts are carved on gravestones in the cemeteries of Europe." (Do not look for this sentence on the Maariv English-language website: it is sanitised.)
Its message is clear: blood of a goy, especially of a German goy, is of less value than blood of a Jew. And you brought it upon yourselves.
Israel boasted that her assassins murdered German technicians and scientists - but Germany never complained. A brave and noble American Jew, John Sack, published a book on Jewish atrocities committed against innocent ethnic Germans in late 1940s - but Germany did not investigate the grave accusations, did not demand the trial of the criminals; even the book of Sack was not published in Germany. Jews admitted mass poisoning of German POWs and an attempt to murder millions of German civilians - Germany did not investigate it, but transferred more money and military hardware to Israel.
You accepted your second-class status of children of lesser god. Not today - when you elevated Auschwitz and disdained the fiery holocaust of Dresden. When you bewept deportations of Jews and ignored deportations of ethnic Germans by Zionist-ridden governments of Poland and Czechoslovakia.
When you pushed for disarmament of Iraq and supplied nuclear equipment to Dimona. When you locked up and extradited Palestinian fighters and did not demand extradition of an Israeli citizen Solomon Morel who tortured and killed thousands of Germans. When you tried publishers of Norman Finkelstein's Holocaust Industry and allowed agents of ADL to march streets of Berlin with Israeli flags and portraits of Bomber Harris. You agreed that your blood is cheap. Do not be surprised if it will flow after the supply of Palestinians will dry up.
Personally, I am rather grateful for what you did. Until now, the struggle for equality in Palestine was hindered by well-meaning women and men who did not question the Jewish supremacy in Europe and the US but were horrified by the genocide of Palestinians. While fighting against the Wall, or against devastation of Gaza, they were worried by accusation of 'antisemitism'. They thought the argument against Israeli apartheid is legitimate in the New World Order. Now you have removed this obstacle by proving that whatever happens in Palestine is not a local aberration but the foundation stone of Pax Americana.
Let them both fall together: the local and the global scheme of Judaic supremacy, so Jews and Gentiles will be able once again live like equals in Palestine and elsewhere.

15 - Pro-Zionism - Defending The Indefensible
By Stephen Lendman
This article responds to a March 15 Los Angeles Times Judea Pearl one headlined: "Is anti-Zionism hate?" Pearl teaches computer science at UCLA, is the father of slain journalist Daniel Pearl, and president of the Daniel Pearl Foundation. It was "formed....to continue Danny's mission and to address the root causes of this tragedy in the spirit" of the man it represents, including "uncompromised objectivity and integrity....and respect for people of all cultures...."
Some of its honorary board member belie this purpose:
-- former president Bill Clinton, an unindicted war criminal and backer of neoliberal plunder;
-- Elie Wiesel, a shameless self-promoter, "Holocaust" exploiter, and apologist for the most outrageous Israeli crimes;
-- Jordan's Queen Noor, wife of King Abdullah II, who, like his father Hussein, rules with dictatorial police state powers; and
-- Christiane Amanpour and Ted Koppel, two notables in the corporate media who never let facts conflict with their views and support for the powerful.
Pearl calls anti-Zionism "hate more dangerous than anti-Semitism, threatening lives and peace in the Middle East." Zionism is precisely the opposite as numerous Jewish writers, including this one, have addressed.
In his book "Overcoming Zionism," Joel Kovel explained how it fosters "imperialist expansion and militarism (with) signs of the fascist malignancy;" that it turned Israel "into a machine for the manufacture of human rights abuses" led by terrorists posing as democrats. Kovel's book and his work got him fired from the Bard College faculty effective July 1 when his current contract expires - for daring to criticize Israel, its Zionist ideology, state-sponsored terror, and decades of lawlessness and egregious behavior.
Kovel expressed outrage that institutions like Bard aren't bothered; that they grant Israel impunity, suppress dissent, then marginalize, punish, and remove the "heretics," ones like Kovel who honorably and courageously write truths.
Pearl railed about a UCLA Center for Near East Studies symposium invitation to "four longtime Israel bashers" so they could attack Zionism's legitimacy and "its vision of a two-state solution...." - a scheme to consign Palestinians to isolated cantons and steal their most valuable land.
He equates legitimate Israeli criticism and anti-Zionism with "criminaliz(ing) Israel's existence, distort(ing) its motives and malign(ing) its character, its birth, even its conception." He cites "Jewish leaders (condemning) this hate-fest as a dangerous invitation to anti-Semitic hysteria" even though one has nothing to do with the other and conflating them masks the real issue - Zionism's corrosive effects and the myths on which it's based.
Ones Pearl ignores in stating "Anti-Zionism rejects the very notion that Jews are a nation - a collective bonded by a common history - and, accordingly denies Jews the right to self-determination in their historical birthplace. It seeks the dismantling of the Jewish nation-state: Israel, (what it) 'grants' to other historically bonded collectives (e.g. French, Spanish, Palestinians), the right to nationhood...."
Pearl can't accept the hard facts that Tel Aviv University Professor Shlomo Zand documented in his important 2008 book: "When and How Was the Jewish People Invented?" It exposes biblical nonsense comprising core Zionist beliefs about Jews:
-- that ancient Romans expelled them;
-- their exodus from Egypt, then left to wander the earth rootless;
-- enslaved, oppressed, and tormented for centuries; and
-- the myth that God bestowed a "Greater Israel" for Jews alone - "A land without people for a people without land."
According to Israeli journalist Tom Segev and others:
-- there never was a Jewish people, just a Jewish religion;
-- there was no exile, therefore no return, and much of the Jewish Diaspora was voluntary; and
-- the story was a Zionist invention, a conspiracy to justify a future Jewish state, and now vilify Palestinian self-determination as a plot to destroy it.
With regard to other "bonded collectives," France, Spain, America and other states are nationalities, not religions. Israel is a Jewish state with rights for Jews alone. They matter. Others don't, and therein lies the difference. Palestinians, in contrast, are occupied, impoverished, oppressed, driven from their land, vilified for being Muslims, and victimized by slow-motion genocide to destroy them and any hope for self-determination.
"Are Jews a nation," asks Pearl? "Some philosophers would argue Jews are a nation first and religion second." He cites the usual mythology:
-- the Exodus and return to the "promised land before they received the Torah at Mt. Sinai;"
-- "the unshaken conviction in their eventual repatriation to (their) birthplace (since) the Roman expulsion;" and
-- their "shared history, not religion (as) the primary uniting force behind the secular, multiethnic society of Israel" - favoring Jews alone in a quasi secular/religious state where practicing another one is dangerous.
The "Jewish identity today feed(s) on Jewish history (more precisely folklore and myths) and its natural derivatives -
-- the state of Israel" despite its illegitimate birth and mythological roots;
-- "its struggle for survival" in spite of being the world's fourth most powerful military, nuclear-armed; with no enemies except the ones it makes; and having a history of aggressive wars; violence over conciliation; confrontation, not diplomacy; and claiming self-defense as justification when there is none;
-- "its cultural and scientific achievements," much of the latter involving militarism and hard line security; and
-- "its relentless drive for peace."
Pearl like most others can't accept the fact that Israel disdains peace, thrives on violence, and needs it as justification. The very notion of peace and conflict resolution terrifies it. What prime minister Yitzhak Shamir once admitted about Israel's 1982 Lebanon war - that there was "terrible danger....not so much a military one as a political one" so a pretext was invented to attack when no threat or justification existed.
It took 18,000 lives and left South Lebanon occupied until Israel Defense Forces withdrew in May 2000, except for the 25 square km Shebaa Farms area illegally retained to this day.
Yet Pearl insists that "anti-Zionism targets the most vulnerable part of the Jewish people, namely, the Jewish population of Israel, whose physical safety and personal dignity depend crucially on maintaining Israel's sovereignty. Put bluntly, the anti-Zionist 'plan' to do away with Israel condemns 5.5 million human beings, mostly refugees or children of refugees, to eternal defenselessness in a region where genocidal designs are not uncommon."
He adds that "anti-Zionist rhetoric (shows) academic sophistication and social acceptance in certain extreme yet vocal circles. (It's also) a stab in the back to the Israeli peace camp (and) gives credence (to) the hidden agenda of every Palestinian (for) the eventual elimination of Israel."
Now some facts misrepresented, distorted, or unstated by Pearl and other like-minded apologists:
-- There never was nor is there now an "Israeli peace camp," as explained above.
-- Israel's sovereignty isn't the issue. It exists, is accepted, and anti-Zionists don't dispute it. Further, since at least the late 1980s, Palestinian leaders (including Arafat and Hamas) have been willing to extend recognition. But Israel rejects all peace and reconciliation overtures, yet the dominant media and Zionists won't mention it.
-- Palestinians and other Arabs don't target Israel and haven't since the 1973 war. However, they justifiably defend themselves when attacked as international law allows.
-- Anti-Zionists, like this writer, have no plan or desire to destroy Israel, harm its people, or render them defenseless. Demanded, however, is that Israel behave, act civilized, practice the democracy it preaches, observe international and its own laws, and be held fully accountable when it doesn't, including its leaders for their crimes of war and against humanity to deter future ones from committing similar violations.
-- Israel alone menaces Palestinians and other regional states, including Lebanon, Syria, and Iran. Those nations, nor any others, threaten Israel, yet again media and Zionist propaganda say otherwise.
-- Zionist ideology is extremist, undemocratic, and hateful. It claims Jewish supremacy, specialness, and uniqueness - God's "chosen people." It harms Jews and non-Jews alike. Former Israeli scholar, critic, and life-long human rights activist, Israel Shahak (1933 - 2001), explained the dangers of Jewish chauvinism, religious fanaticism, and its influence on America's polity.
He called the notion of self-hating Jews "nonsensical" and explained the definition of a Jew:
...."if either their mother, grandmother, great-grandmother (or) great-great-grandmother were Jewesses by religion; or if the person (converted) to Judaism in a way satisfactory to the Israeli authorities, and on condition that the person has not converted from Judaism to another religion." According to the Talmud and post-Talmudic rabbinic law, "conversion (must be) performed by authorized rabbis in a proper manner." For females, it entails an outlandish ritual - "their inspection by three rabbis while naked in a 'bath of purification' " to confirm it.
Shahak wrote extensively on how Israel discriminates in favor of Jews in most every aspect of life, including the three he called most important - "residency rights, the right to work (and to have) equality before the law."
Zionist ideology demeans non-Jews and denies them equal rights in Israel. A body of law enforces it - to legally discriminate against non-Jewish Israeli citizens (for their religion) and Palestinians in the Territories, something unimaginable in all developed states and most others on every continent.
Shahak stated: "The obvious intention of such discriminatory measures is to decrease the number of non-Jewish citizens of Israel (to affirm its existence as a) 'Jewish' state" quite hostile to and demeaning of other religious faiths.
This is the Zionist message and why growing numbers of Jews and many others oppose it. Supporting Zionism is repugnant, indefensible, and equivalent to defending cancer, a malignancy relentlessly destroying its host. It must be exposed, denounced, and once and for all expunged from the body politic. A CIA study suggested the alternative - that beyond 20 years, Israel won't survive in its present form.
The Agency predicts "an inexorable movement away from a two-state to a one-state solution, as the most viable model based on democratic principles of full equality that sheds the looming specter of colonial Apartheid while allowing for the return of the 1947/1948 and 1967 (Palestinian) refugees. The latter (is) the precondition for sustainable peace in the region."
According to international lawyer Franklin Lamb, "the handwriting....is on the wall....history will reject the colonial enterprise sooner or later."
The report also predicts the return of all Palestinian refugees to their homeland and the exodus of two million Israeli Jews to America in the next 15 years. They're fed up and want to leave. Omitted from the report, or at least unrevealed, is that short of an equitable resolution to the long-standing Palestinian conflict, Israel eventually will destroy itself. Nations that live by the sword, die by it, and Israel is no exception.
The alternative is peace and reconciliation, something Israel flatly rejects. Unless that changes, its very existence is at stake, what history teaches but Israel has yet to learn.

16 - Thought Police Keel-Haul
A Navy Catholic
By Harmony Grant
Last year, the human-rights director for the city of St. Paul removed an Easter bunny displayed by a secretary. "I sent an email that Easter is viewed as a Christian holiday and advised that it be taken down. It wasn't a big deal," the director said. (Michael Barone, US News & World Report blog, April 2006)
But it is a big deal. Christian symbols are apparently too offensive to be seen. According to
You know who might have had a problem with this? John Jay, James Madison, John Adams- and George Washington, who kissed the Bible after taking his oath of office and wrote, "It is impossible to rightly govern the world without God and Bible." The founding fathers, who gave us our freedom, stated clearly that we have
If the brilliant men who wrote our Constitution were alive and talking this way today, they'd doubtless be defamed by the Anti-Defamation League as "Christian supremacists" and as "radical traditionalists" by the Southern Poverty Law Center. Our nation's first chief justice, John Jay, went farther than most modern fundamentalists, saying boldly, "It is the duty - as well as the privilege and interest - of our Christian nation to select and prefer Christians for their rulers." If SPLC had their way, John Jay would surely have been discredited right out of the Supreme Court building! In that case, he could join Lt. Cmdr. John Sharpe on the unemployment couch.
The Strange Case of Lt. Cmdr. Sharpe
On March 7, Lt. Cmdr. Sharpe was relieved of duty on the Carl Vinson aircraft carrier, for alleged participation in an "organization that espouses supremacist causes." Sharpe had been attacked by the Southern Poverty Law Center for leading the Legion of St. Louis and the IHS Press, which SPLC calls "nakedly antisemitic." The Center lists Sharpe as one of the "Dirty Dozen" Catholic people/organizations which they call "radical traditionalist" hate groups. Sharpe founded the Legion of St. Louis, described by SPLC as "if it's not the worst group we profiled in terms of anti-Semitism, is right up there." (AP, March 11)
"What do you mean, anti semitic?" counters Sharpe. "Have I advocated harming people because they're Jewish, hating people because they're Jewish, having any attitude to them because they're Jewish or any other religion? Absolutely not." (Steven Vegh, The Virginian-Pilot, March 10, 2007)
Sharpe says his IHS Press publishes old titles by Catholic writers such as G. K. Chesterton; he founded the legion in 2000 as a "Web-based forum for discussion on how Catholicism related to contemporary social and economic issues," and the site was only active for 2 years. (AP, March 11, 2007) So basically, Sharpe was dishonored and relieved of duty because of a Catholic publishing company and a politically incorrect website dismantled five years ago.
Brother André Marie of Saint Benedict Center says "Virulently standing up for Catholic doctrine and the Rule of Christ the King are becoming hate crimes now and Catholic men should not stand for that one bit." In a letter to the Navy Times, Brother Marie writes, "I know John to be a fine Christian man, not a "supremacist" or "anti-Semite" by any stretch of a rational man's imagination."
Saint Benedict Center praises Sharpe as a talented Catholic publisher and one of their conference speakers. They call his relief from duty one finger of a greater assault on Catholicism by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Lessons in Hate from SPLC
SPLC has indeed waged war against traditional Catholics, especially those savvy to the contemporary Judaic assault on Christian values, symbols, and beliefs in the west. In fact, SPLC accuses "extremist Catholics" of possibly forming "the largest group of antisemites"!
Their Winter 2007 Intelligence Report on the "Dirty Dozen" estimates the number of American "radical traditionalists" at 100,000. The "Dirty Dozen" list includes Catholic Apologetics Int., one of whose crimes was to publish an NPN article by Rev. Ted Pike. The twelve are targeted by SPLC for exposing, discussing, and criticizing Jewish leadership of social progressive causes and anti-Christianity.
Along with the "Dirty Dozen" report, the SPLC site denounces "racist" Pat Buchanan's immigration book and seeks to taint a coalition of psychologists who believe homosexuality can be cured with the charge of "racism." The site also blacklists "Christian nativists" (who want limited and legal immigration) and the Minute Men.
SPLC was founded in 1971 by Morris Dees and Joe Levin, Jewish lawyers in Montgomery, Alabama. Dees is famous for bankrupting far-right organizations through litigation. In 1981, the Center began monitoring "hate groups," and now produces a quarterly Intelligence Report. The Center's "Teaching Tolerance" K-12 education program produces an award-winning magazine read by "more than 500,000 educators."
Why Can't We All Get Along?
Why is there such antagonism from Jews against Christians? Since 1948, America has given away $100,000,000,000 to Israel. Evangelicals like John Hagee are more hawkishly supportive of Israel's wars than many Israelis! Why the hostility?
Modern Judaism is a primarily a humanist cult based on the myth of Jewish supremacy. Jews are bound together by the myth of "blameless victimhood" especially during WW2, and by the beliefs that they can trust no one but fellow Jews and goyim (even the best) irrationally oppose them. Personal testimonies of nominal Jews who have become "religious" reveal conversion stories quite unlike those of Christians, who most often report an experience with God involving guilt, repentance, forgiveness and spiritual peace. Most often, adult Jewish "conversions" happen after watching Holocaust film marathons, listening to Holocaust survivors, or reading a Shoah ode. Jews write of the sense of connection, responsibility, and honor for their dead-and those who will die if the irrational, immoral, hate-filled goy (Iran, anyone?) are not suppressed. Israeli and American Jewish leaders alike speak of Muslims, Arabs and Palestinians with often unabashed racism. If the Navy truly disciplined all who "espouse supremacist causes," how many Zionist Jews would be relieved of duty?
Christianity, on the other hand, is not about Christians the way modern Judaism is about Jews. It is about Christ. True Christianity places human interests below divine ones. Its fundamental relationship should not be man to man, but man to God. Christ taught the basic equality of souls before our Maker; He sanctioned no racial or national supremacy, but preached a kingdom "not of this world" which unites every person in every land who trusts in Him and receives His Spirit.
Thus Christianity rebukes modern Judaism by its very existence. The Spirit of Christ is irrevocably opposed to the humanist spirit of modern Judaism. They cannot be reconciled. Jews who hate Christianity and defame it at least recognize this reality, better than most Christians.
Those Christians who do recognize this battle, and speak out against the Judaic spirit attacking them, are quickly punished-as Sharpe and his Catholic friends know all too well.
The ultimate tool of Jewish punishment for Christian truthtelling is the "anti-hate" legislation of the Anti-Defamation League of B'nai B'rith. If a federal hate law is passed, public courthouses and military grounds won't be the only spaces patrolled by Jewish thought police-the entire United States, private and public alike, will be toured by the searing searchlight of the ADL for expressions of Christianity, or "anti-Jewish bias." All Christians may then join Sharpe in the unemployment line, or prison, whether they actually rebuke the Judaic agenda or not. It is Christ-and His teaching of spiritual equality before God, and spiritual obligation to Him- that is truly under attack, sought out for silencing and punishment.
We must be courageous and sincere enough to speak the whole truth now. Evil thrives in silence. If even a small minority of Americans humble ourselves before God and speak the whole truth, He may yet deliver our nation from the truly frightening specter of "anti-hate" legislation and a federal "Peace Department" dedicated to opposing traditional morality (See,
But if we can't find the guts to stand up for Christ when the worst ADL and SPLC can do is call us "anti-Semites" and alienate superficial followers, how will we stand when refusal to receive the mark of the beast means starvation and death?
The time to speak is now, identifying ADL and liberal Jewish activism as the root of much of the rotten fruit in media, Congress, Mideast military entanglements and the globalist financial agenda.
I'm only twenty-four. But I would rather face prison for speaking the whole truth than live in comfort with the knowledge that, by my silence, I assisted evil. God told Jeremiah to speak the whole truth and "diminish not a word;" anything less empowers darkness. I can't have such complicity on my conscience either in this life or the next, where Jesus would ask, "Why couldn't you have feared and trusted Me alone? I would have taken care of you."
17 - The Zionist Brainwashing Of America
By Peter Chamberlin
The existence of "God's chosen people" has been a destabilizing factor in human history since God first made the covenant with Abraham. This covenant has been God's chosen vehicle for the teaching of mankind and the sorting-out of those humans who are morally unteachable. His lessons reached down into the darkest depths of the human soul, to bring out that which lies hidden deeply within. He set into motion a never-ending series of moral choices, beginning with Abraham's wife Sarah. The primary lesson was to have faith in His Word, even when it seemed illogical to do so. Sarah's refusal to believe that a one-hundred year old man and a ninety year old woman could have a child caused her to take an immoral action (acting outside His will). This choice caused Abraham to father Ishmael, the patriarch of the Muslim people.
Thus began the education of planet earth. The savage, barbaric world of primitive man was introduced to the concept of "right and wrong." That teaching came to be known as Judaism. It was a religion intended to sow division, even as it promoted the unity of man's common cause. It was constantly dividing the people and then re-solidifying the scattered halves. This was God's purpose, to manipulate the minds of all humans, creating the world's longest running psy-ops program.
God's choice, to honor the seed of Abraham over all other humans, magnified the animosities and the emotional turmoil, which divided the world. Both of the bloodlines of Abraham were blessed, something that no other race on the planet can claim. The fact that God chose to favor one of Abraham's sons and his offspring over the other, giving them the central role in all human history, has given birth to the idea of racial superiority.
Nonetheless, the two similar religions that later flowed from the sons of Abraham have both prayed to the same God, the God of Abraham, Creator of all things.
God's choice to separate the chosen people from the world for special training and giving them the bulk of His teachings, as well as the blessings and curses, our Creator made the children of Israel the focus of a special form of scorn. After they were exiled from the Holy Land and forced into the midst of Gentiles who (like all men) harbored a primitive hatred of God, where the repressed jealousy because of the Jew's special status revealed itself. Jewish intellectualism, as later documented in European [Ashkenazi] Jews, (Ashekenazis as a distinct group have consistently been tested to have a higher average IQ. http://homepage.mac.com/harpend/.Public/AshkenaziIQ.jbiosocsci.pdf ) and belief in their own superiority only made things worse, helping to give substance to several virulent counter-theories of organized anti-Semitic racial supremacy.
Muslim anti-Semitism (even though one-third of all Muslims are Semitic) is the most problematic http://www.dendulkforcongress.com/jihad_terrorist.shtml strain of the sickness, since it began when Jacob usurped Esau's birthright as Abraham's firstborn son.
The violent anti-Semitic quotes from the Koran which are cited by the by today's new anti-Semitic Muslim haters as alleged proof that Islam is a religion of hate are no more disturbing than some quotes from the Old Testament and the Talmud:
...thou shalt hough their horses, and burn their chariots with fire. (Joshua 11:6)
...in the cities of these peoples that the Lord your God gives you for an inheritance, you shall save alive nothing that breathes, (Deuteronomy 20:16)92
And they utterly destroyed all that was in the city, both man and woman, young and old, and ox, and sheep, and ass, with the edge of the sword . . . (Joshua 6:21)88
Baba Mezia 114a-114b. "the Talmud learns from Ezekiel that the term for man, Adam, only applies to Jews," meaning that only Jews are human, while [Gentiles] a lesser life form.
Compared to the Koran:
Sura of the Sword - 9:5 "...slay the idolaters wherever you find them. Arrest them, besiege them, and lie in ambush everywhere for them."
Surah 9:27- "Fight against such as those to whom the Scriptures were given [Jews and Christians]...until they pay tribute out of hand and are utterly subdued."
Judaism itself is split into two currents, with one stream dedicated to following the words of Moses (Torah) and the other half relying on the teachings of the later rabbis, as given in the oral traditions (Talmud.) Where the true Torah followers are dedicated to accepting their exile from the Holy Land, as ordained by God (until Messiah comes [again] and restores all things), the Talmudic Jews (especially the atheistic apostates) gave birth to a militant ideology, Zionism, which was created in rebellion to God's timing, intending to forcefully restore all things.
Another major part of the "master plan" has been to disguise the true nature of Zionism and the deep roots of Jewish supremacism, from which it sprang. The Zionist's singular goal, "the...negation of exile," was a fraud, according to the neocon prophet Leo Strauss, who confessed that they had harbored an equally important secondary objective of proving that "the power of religion has been broken." (from Leo Strauss review of Freud's Future Of An Illusion )
Their real intention was to force a reversal of world history, all the way back to pre-exile Eretz Yisrael. The plan was to force the fulfillment of "The Birthright," without God's help, creating a kingdom of Jews without God, enthroning themselves at the center of the world. Zionism is an atheistic movement masquerading as the fulfillment of religious prophecy. Zionism is a plan for an end run around God's. It is Satan's plan.
After reclaiming the Holy Land, America was to be the second nation which had to come under Zionist domination, in order for the plan to succeed. The neoconservative movement is the vanguard of the centuries-old plan. The method of operation chosen by the movement has been to seize the "conservative" cause and to mutate it into a new racist form of fascism, modeled after National Socialism. Their anti-Muslim beliefs provided the foundation for their "master class" theories. Their aim was to prove that only the strong deserved to be treated as human beings using the new ideology of American "exceptionalism" and manifest destiny. With their rise to power, America became a tool for digging up the Middle East and rebuilding "Zion." (The planned Jewish dominated world order.)
The Zionist "neocons" had inherited the corporate/government machinery that had been taken over by previous Zionist agents, incorporating the brainwashing techniques developed from the psychiatric methods created by mostly Jewish psychologists. http://www.jinfo.org/Psychologists.html They had developed their theories of psychotherapy and social engineering through their study of deviant human nature and anti-Semitism in Nazi psychological indoctrination in the heart of fascist Europe. The Zionist social scientists studied the world which had been distorted by fascist nationalism, seeking to create a science to manipulate personalities, hoping to change the fascist mindset, so that it might truly happen "never again."
The corporate government propagandists who had studied their work on the aberrant psychology of the worst of all human beings developed highly coercive manipulative group psychotherapy techniques. The therapeutic conditioning which had been created by Sigmund Freud and his associates became the foundation for brainwashing techniques and a reverse conditioning process, intended to produce a new generation of fascists here in America and wherever else it was to be used. Now variants of these psy-ops techniques are being used in every strata of society, to control and to manipulate large groups of people, most notably through advertising, government disinformation and the "entertainment" industry.
Intellectual Jewish refugees, who had fled to America and England from Nazi Germany and Austria, brought different elements of the new Nazism with them, which they later formulated into their specialized sciences by interpreting their own personal experiences and research. The neoconservative students of those scholars fashioned their research into a science of political indoctrination, based on their combined knowledge of fascist tactics of deception and intimidation. The Zionist neoconservatives didn't build the government machinery; they merely inserted themselves into the driving seats and forced the American people to line-up quietly behind them. Through fear and terrorist intimidation, they forced the people to accept a fascist/racist ideology that they would never willingly accept otherwise.
They had inherited a government of self-seeking "public servants" who had stopped serving the public long ago, most of which had been indoctrinated with the new ideology at foundations (mostly associated with the Tavistock Institute). Their mentors, the Jewish psychologists and social scientists who were key players in the history of Tavistock, had done their preparatory work very well, from their seats on the thousands of think tanks and foundations. The Tavistock Institute is a $6 Billion a year network of Foundations in the U.S., consisting of ten major institutions, 400 subsidiaries, and 3000 other study groups and think tanks. It is funded by a grant from the Rockefeller Foundation. From these positions of power, they applied the manipulative psychological techniques that had been developed by Sigmund Freud and his students. http://www.barefootsworld.net/tavistok.html (source for all quotes on Tavistock)
Statue Of Sigmund Freud In Front Of
The Tavistock Institute Of Mind Control
Sigmund Freud (avowed atheist with admitted Oedipal impulses toward his own mother) considered mankind to be the vilest of all of God's creation. Freud's work reflected his own repugnant beliefs:
"The individual is essentially an enemy of society and has instinctual urges that must be restrained to help society function. 'Among these instinctual wishes are those of incest, cannibalism, and lust for killing.' His view of human nature is that it is anti-social, rebellious, and has high sexual and destructive tendencies. The destructive nature of humans sets a pre-inclination for disaster when humans must interact with others in society. 'For masses are lazy and unintelligent; they have no love for instinctual renunciation, and they are not to be convinced by argument of its inevitability; and the individuals composing them support one another in giving free rein to their indiscipline.' So destructive is human nature, he claims, that 'it is only through the influence of individuals who can set an example and whom masses recognize as their leaders that they can be induced to perform the work and undergo the renunciations on which the existence of civilization depends.' All this sets a terribly hostile society that could implode if it were not for civilizing forces and developing government..."
--From The Future Of An Illusion, by Sigmund Freud.
Freud equates religion with an instinctual drive, the product of a childlike mind -
"Religion is an outshoot of the father-complex, and represents man's helplessness in the world, having to face the ultimate fate of death, the struggle of civilization, and the forces of nature. He views [belief in] God as a child-like 'longing for [a] father.' In his words '...gods...must exorcize the terrors of nature, they must reconcile men to the cruelty of Fate, particularly as it is shown in death, and they must compensate them for the sufferings and privations which a civilized life in common has imposed on them'." Future Of An Illusion
The psychologists and social scientists associated with Tavistock have woven the degenerate ideas of Freud into the neoconservative ideology. There they have implemented their mass-conditioning techniques as part of the plan to create a fascist Zionist America and a fascist world. The plans for us are almost completed.
According to Dr. John Coleman, in his revelatory work, CONSPIRATORS' HIERARCHY: THE STORY OF THE COMMITTEE OF 300 - http://www.barefootsworld.net/tavistok.html
"The ideology of American foundations was created by the Tavistock Institute...study the effect of shellshock on British soldiers who survived World War I... to establish the breaking point of men under stress, under the direction of the British Army Bureau of Psychological Warfare...its prophet, Sigmond Freud,...Tavistock's pioneer work in behavioral science along Freudian lines of controlling humans...Tavistock Institute developed the mass brain-washing techniques which were first used experimentally on American prisoners of war in Korea...All Tavistock and American foundation techniques have a single goal---to break down the psychological strength of the individual and render him helpless to oppose the dictators of the World Order."
At Tavistock, German refugee, Kurt Lewin originated the anti-Germany propaganda campaign to "turn the American public against Germany and involve us in World War II...James Paul Warburg, son of Paul Warburg who wrote the Federal Reserve Act, and nephew of Max Warburg who had financed Hitler, set up the Institute fir Policy Studies to promote [LSD]... and the New Left counter-culture."
"[The] National Training Laboratories... operation revolves around the particular form of Tavistock degenerate psychology known as 'group dynamics,' developed by German Tavistock operative Kurt Lewin...In a Lewinite brainwashing group, a number of individuals from varying backgrounds and personalities, are manipulated by a 'group leader' to form a 'consensus' of opinion, achieving a new 'group identity.' The key to the process is the creation of a controlled environment, in which stress is introduced (sometimes called dissonance) to crack an individual's belief structure. Using the peer pressure of other group members, the individual is cracked, and a new personality emerges with new values. The degrading experience causes the person to deny that any change has taken place...
At the University of Pennsylvania's Wharton School of Finance & Commerce, the indoctrinated are taught how to produce cooked statistics known as econometrics from the Wharton Econometric Forecasting Associates.
At the Institute For The Future they work to manipulate government to control large groups of people, writing position papers advocating destabilizing actions intended to be negative catalysts for change in America, such as;
"liberalizing abortion laws, drug usage and that cars entering an urban area pay tolls, teaching birth control in public schools, requiring registration of firearms, making use of drugs a non-criminal offense, legalizing homosexuality."
The Stanford Research Institute "emphasis on mind control research and future sciences... Stanford Research is plugged into at least 200 smaller think tanks doing research into every facet of life in America...At present Stanford's computers are linked with 2500 sister research consoles."
At the Rand Research and Development Corporation, "there are literally thousands of highly important companies, government institutions and organizations that make use of RANDS's services...brainwashing remains the primary function of RAND."
At Tavistock, Alexandre Kojève's studies of Hegelian dialectics provided the final pieces of the puzzle for the Zionist plotters seeking to force the new fascist ideology on to the unsuspecting American people. It was Kojève's interpretations of "Hegel through the lens of Marx," in his "End of History" thesis that produced the "clash of civilization" theory of Francis Fukuyama. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Alexandre_Koj%C3%A8ve
Using the dialectic method, they constructed a credible "bogeyman," in the form of Islamic terrorism, with which to herd the frightened American sheeple right into Israel's open arms, since the Zionist state would logically appear to be the antithesis of the Islamists.
Since the 9/11 attacks the Islamists have been inflated into an almost supernatural menace. A dark whisper campaign has nearly succeeded in equating all Islam with terrorism. The echo chamber of the corporate media has amplified their reputations as terrorists by focusing on their former exploits against the Soviets in Afghanistan. The coining of the deceptive term "Islamofascists" linked Islamic ideology to the Nazis, providing the propagandistic ammunition needed for the brainwashing campaign. In the indoctrinated neo-fascist ideology, modeled after National Socialism, liberals are traitors, the enemies of the growing police state, while anti-liberals (conservatives) are the new anti-Semitic super-patriot agitators.
Their mind-numbing campaign of fear and intimidation created a state of dissonance within the minds of the targeted American populace, making the people susceptible to suggestion. Utilizing the brainwashing methods of group dynamics, they made this new paradigm the new national "consensus." Hyper-patriotism became a guilt weapon, used to bludgeon the new fascist group identity into the scrambled conscious of post 9/11 America. The historical lessons taught by Jewish refugee George Mosse (mentor of neoconservative agitator Michael Ledeen) on the psychological and political indoctrination skills used by the Nazi propagandists, showed the way to the fascist transformation of American political parties, using the new mythology of Islamofascism.
The object of that government/media campaign was to make the people easily suggestible through the psychology of "learned helplessness." The mixture of hyped patriotism, guilt, fear and helplessness made us true sheeple, who could only trust the new fascistic government to shepherd us to safety past all those scary Muslims. According to another Jewish psychologist, Martin Seligman, the author of "Learned Optimism" (the alleged psychological antidote to learned helplessness), human minds can be trained to passively accept unpleasant situations, http://www.jinfo.org/Psychologists.html
"...nullifying the natural reactions, which normally cause attempts to escape or to control the situation. It is a state of deep depression, brought on by prolonged immersion in a reality of learned helplessness...A person with learned helplessness easily gives in her/his goals if s/he failed few times in achieving them. Such persons show apathy, no motivation, depression and pessimism."
The American military is now developing virtual reality computer simulations, based on the theory of learned helplessness, to help it plan psy-ops operations to help it manipulate the populations of entire nations.
The intent is to "...test multiple courses of action to anticipate and shape behaviors of adversaries, neutrals, and partners. By applying theories of economics and human psychology, its developers believe they can predict how individuals and mobs will respond to various stressors... They try to anticipate how stressed-out populations can be manipulated by increasing the fear and anxiety-induced helplessness, through the introduction of panic-causing events."
The A. I. thinking of the massive computer simulations used in the program is based upon the theories of Israeli-American cognitive psychologist Daniel Kahneman.
The Zionist Brainwashing of America - Part 2
THE 'WAR ON TERRORISM' ANCIENT PLOT FOR WORLD DOMINATION
"Fascism should more appropriately be called Corporatism because it is a merger of State and corporate power."
--Benito Mussolini (1883-1945), Fascist Dictator of Italy
The Zionist neoconservative fascist ideology has been developed over many decades. American society has lived under a state of psychological siege for many years, as the slow indoctrination with the growing ideology has been carried out by agents of the new "Zion." We have constantly been bombarded, every minute of every day, with their psychological conditioning which has been meant to lead us into a state of helpless despair. In this hopeless condition, we would theoretically willingly surrender our individuality to the state controllers. We have literally been scared and "entertained" to death, so that we would give-up, roll over, and play dead. They wanted our surrender to be assured before they took the final steps to murder our democratic-Republic. The final step is the last act in the war on terrorism, the bombing of Iran. This is the critical step that is necessary in the Zionist plot to claim the "birthright" of the "chosen people," as promised to the true "Israel."
The creation of the myth of the Islamic threat has long been a part of our slow conditioning process. The "war on terrorism" has been waiting in the wings for three decades. The primary motivators of this clash of civilizations have been Israeli and American Zionists. They are behind an American campaign intended to radicalize Islamists and to ignite a global "holy war" against the enemies of Zionism, beginning with the Soviets in Afghanistan. As inheritors of the mantle of the Zionist Jewish Communists, the plotters have faithfully followed the radical dialectic method, by working in secret to bring about their opposites, sowing the seeds of violence, in order to bring about the desired synthesis. It is the ideology of Zionism itself, that has been dividing the world and multiplying violent hatreds for centuries, as the key to a planned campaign to force all the Jewish people of the Diaspora back to the land of Israel, whether that be their desire, or not.
"By Way Of Deception Thou Shalt Do War" is the official motto of Mossad. We know that Hamas is a creation of Mossad, http://www.huffingtonpost.com/mj-rosenberg/a-
hamasrun-gaza-we-can-_b_52438.html created to push the PLO into compliance with Israel's demands, or into an existential bloodbath. This Hegelian logic of creating a terrorist enemy to negate a terrorist threat has been the cornerstone of American foreign policy for thirty years. By secretly creating a real Islamic threat to both America and Israel, they created a very threatening, very anti-Semitic motivator, to force all the Jewish people out of their comfortable complacent lives and back to Eretz Yisrael.
It was during the Reagan years that the Israeli lobby began to really dominate the Republican Party. http://www.ujc.org/page.html?ArticleID=66189 Reagan's embrace of Israel and its methods for fighting "Islamic terrorism," and the placement of key neoconservatives like Wolfowitz and Perle within the Defense Dept. effectively turned American foreign policy over to the Zionists. According to former Texas congressman Charlie Wilson, in Charlie Wilson's War, American foreign policy has been shaped by Israel and the Israeli lobby since the early days of the covert war against the Soviets in Afghanistan, in the late eighties.
In Wilson's account (which was heavily biased in favor of Israel), he was brought into contact with AIPAC by New York Mayor Ed Koch. Once this connection was made, he was adopted by an agent of Mossad, who goaded him to push Congress to do more to agitate and arm the Islamists to fight against the Russians. This was at a time when Israeli Zionists were desperate to bring Russian "Jews" to Israel, to make up for the shortage of new immigrants from Western countries who refused to migrate to a new harsh life in Israel.
Through the skillful manipulation of Congressman Wilson and others like him, Israel managed to reap immeasurable returns on their investment in creating a probable future enemy alliance with the United States moved tons of Israeli seized Russian weapons and allied Israel indirectly with Iran, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia.
After his embrace of Israel, Wilson was aided by a group of Jewish congressmen, who were instrumental in moving him into the powerful House Appropriations Committee. From this seat of power, Wilson poured money into the nascent CIA aid program for the Afghan mujahedeen and began to demand bigger and bigger results from the covert operators. The CIA program, in effect, sought to recreate a mirror image version of the Zionist militant Jewish Self Defense Corps. training programs which had been created by "Wolf" Jabotinsky. The "defensive" efforts to train and indoctrinate Jewish males to defend Zion blossomed later into the most radical right-wing Israeli militant groups: Irgun, Stern gang, Likud, Jewish Defense League. The CIA's militant/indoctrination camps, created on the Betarian model, have been duplicated throughout the Muslim world, proving to be the source of terrorist paramilitary expertise and radical indoctrination of Islamists that haunts us today in the "war on terror." (When Zionist paramilitary "self-defense" camps are reproduced in the Muslim world they are now described by our press as "terrorist" camps. The "bogeyman" was complete.
It was time for the war against democracy to get underway. Since the assassination of President Kennedy, Americans have experienced political extortion (terrorism), to force the government's secret agenda upon us. Beginning with the "October surprise," (political op by CIA spymaster William Casey to give Reagan the presidency), we have witnessed a series of staged events, to force the anointed candidates and their unwanted laws upon us, until the Bill of Rights itself has become endangered. A new series of violent acts followed, beginning with the assassination attempt on Reagan's life (which made his unacceptable policies suddenly acceptable), leading up to the Oklahoma City attack which began to force the unacceptable anti-terror laws upon us, www.pbs.org/newshour/bb/law/militia_4-24.html - 25k - culminating in the "al Qaida" attacks. We watched passively while violence has determined our national direction.
Our electoral process has been violated, as well, through the use of tactics developed by the CIA in their long-running manipulations of elections in Europe and elsewhere, by instigating terrorist tactics, primarily in the form of "false flag" pre-planned "terrorist" attacks upon our allies. http://www.informationliberation.com/?id=16921 "Operation Gladio" revelations have exposed the "parallel apparatus" by the secret government and their "stay behind" army operations that have quietly, subversively implemented the plans of the neo-fascist Zionist manipulators. Seeing the benefits to be gained in popular reaction to terrorist events, they planned for the day when a sufficiently devastating terrorist attack would take place in the United States, to allow the big push to make the new dictatorship a fait accompli.
The parallel government forces moved heaven and earth, utilizing the "al Qaida" Islamists to carry-out US policy in Europe, Asia and Africa, bringing them ever nearer to American soil. The neo-fascist planners waited for the inevitable catastrophic breakdown of society, when they could have acted to prevent the calamity. Instead of working to save American lives, they made their extremist plans that would be justified by the catastrophe which they worked so hard to cause, bestowing upon them the opportunity to rebuild our destabilized world, from a clean slate. The plan to acquire total power from manufactured chaos was to be achieved through a balancing act between the forces that they fully control and those hostile forces that they merely manipulate. The Zionist neocon war plan was made in preparation for the planned day of chaos and especially for the day after that. It is a fascist policy that treats every act of violence and suffering as an opportunity to enact the master plan. It is a plan that the people have broadly rejected in peacetime, yet would likely accept willingly in times of war and great danger.
Israeli (and now American) aggression and acts of violence have clearly been intended to create enemies so threatening as to frighten the people into supporting a state of total war and its accompanying genocide, as necessary defensive acts. The American/Israeli campaign of terror is going very well from their perspective. Every step that we have taken in the "war on terror" has been to duplicate the "failed" tactics that have been honed over the years by the IDF and Mossad. We the people do not understand, that by government standards, these polices are considered to be quite successful.
The key to understanding this contradiction between what government says and what it really means is that everything is considered to be part of a psy-ops operation. All government pronouncements and leaked "news" should be considered to be disinformation. In our limited dictatorship (which poses as a limited democracy), as opposed to a blatant full-blown dictatorship, government must persuade the people to go along with its secret decisions, without provoking open rebellion to the lurking police state. If government is to rely on persuasion, instead of force, to acquire voluntary compliance with its demands for sacrifice from its citizens, then it has to practice deception on a very large scale.
As always, the desired violent Muslim reactions of self-defense, which have followed our military moves are then spun into "aggression." America and Israel foreign policy is to purposely undertake acts which force others to defend themselves, in order to escalate their own counter-attacks and to create the illusion that they are acting in "self-defense" against "terrorism." Through skillful use of the controlled media, to practice their dark brainwashing crafts, they then cause their societies to forget who started the cycles of violence and impart legitimacy to their cause.
Today's Israeli move to brand all of Gaza as terrorist enemy territory (and American moves to brand Iran's Revolutionary Guard as terrorists) is being used (according to plan) to justify ramping-up the siege of the helpless Palestinians. Zionist propagandists have succeeded in convincing many Americans that cutting off the water and power to Gaze, in retaliation for the use of homemade rockets which were launched as desperate acts of self-defense against artillery and F-l6 attacks, is justifiable. We watch the slaughter and ethnic cleansing of Palestine without raising our voices, witnessing the destruction of International Law and the concept of universal human rights along with them.
Israel tells America what to believe in the Middle East. They serve as an echo chamber for our worst suspicions about the Muslim people, confirming the propaganda generated by the neocon press. The only evidence on Iran's alleged nuclear weapons program comes from the terrorist organization, Mujahadeen-e-Khalq. Mossad is deeply involved with MEK, training them in Iraq, to attack targets inside of Iran. According to former weapons inspector Scott Ritter, the "evidence" on Iran's nuclear program (given by the MEK) actually came from the Mossad, to be passed to the MEK by neocon Michael Ledeen.
The mysterious Israeli incursion into Syria is laying the final groundwork for the nuclear strike on Iran that will make war a permanent fixture in the Middle East.
The only thing that will prevent the missiles from firing is the power of the American people to restrain our own leaders. With enough political pressure we can theoretically prevent Bush from bombing Iran or using America's nuclear arsenal to back up Israeli aggression. Overcoming the Zionist brainwashing is imperative if our world is to survive what Israel and the corporate hierarchy has wrought.
18 - Anti-Defamation League Demagoguery & Islamophobia
By Stephen Lendman
Founded by B'nai B'rith in 1913, its stated mission is "to stop the defamation of the Jewish people and to secure justice and fair treatment to all," calling itself "the nation's premier civil rights/human relations agency, (fighting) anti-Semitism and all forms of bigotry...."
In fact, Abraham Foxman, its national director, uses high-mindedness and unfounded anti-semitism hysteria as cover for backing Jewish supremacy and the right of Israelis over Arabs, including by occupation and belligerently enforced apartheid.
One of the 52 listed Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organization (CPMAJO) Zionist organizations, ADL disseminates pro-Israeli propaganda and conducts smear campaigns against Israeli critics, under the guise of fighting anti-semitism and supporting human rights equitably. Overall, in fact, its long history is
In the late 1930s and 40s, it spied on suspected communist sympathizers, working with the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC), later called the House Committee on Internal Security until abolished in 1975, its functions transferred to the House Judiciary Committee.
Later in the 1980s, it engaged in private spying, the San Francisco Chronicle reporting that, in April 1993, police raided its offices, revealing a political spy operation aided by a corrupt police officer, Tom Gerard. Working with Roy Bullock, a political informant, files about thousands of Arab Americans and hundreds left-of-center northern California organizations were pilfered.
Among them were the National Lawyers Guild, ACLU, NAACP, the Rainbow Coalition, Greenpeace, the Nation of Islam, the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee, the Bay Area anti-Apartheid Network, Asian Law Caucus, CISPES, and 20 Bay area labor unions, none supporting hate or revolutionary activities.
Later it was revealed that ADL conducted similar operations nationally through its LEARN program (Law Enforcement Agency Resource Network), infiltrating local law enforcement agencies, bribing police officers, and securing non-public information illegally.
Its penchant for spying is now exposed, if not acknowledged, yet so far it's escaped prosecution and harsh class action suit judgments by admitting no wrongdoing, and agreeing to remove improperly obtained documents from its files. Henceforth, it promised:
-- to refrain from seeking non-public information;
-- contribute $25,000 to a Hate Crimes Fund;
-- another $25,000 for a public school course; and
-- $25,000 more to a fund for improving relations among Jews, Blacks, and other minorities.
After Israel's "War of Independence," its publication, "The Facts," called supporters of Palestinian justice anti-semites, including Barnard College Dean Virginia Gildersleve, Kermit Roosevelt (grandson of Theodore Roosevelt), and former American University of Beirut President Bayard Dodge. Its May 1948 publication charged:
"Their espousal of the Arab League cause and opposition to Zionism has been marked by the increasingly hostile attitude toward the Jewish people themselves. While anti-Zionism and sympathy for the Arab cause are not necessarily indications of anti-Semitic prejudice, there are many whose pro-Arab utterances and activities have contained sufficiently expressed or implied anti-Semitism to give cause for genuine alarm."
Thereafter, ADL used the same "guilt by association" and "guilt by juxtaposition" smears against other Israeli critics and pro-Palestinian supporters.
For example, in 1983, its handbook titled, "Pro-Arab propaganda in America: Vehicles and Voices" listed university faculty and staff members, critical of Israel and Zionism, calling them anti-semites, extremists, and radicals seeking to abolish the state of Israel and incite prejudice against Jewish Americans. Charges were, in fact, smears based on lies, distortions, and half truths, censuring numerous anti-Israeli critics.
Along with AIPAC, the Zionist Organization of America, and other prominent CPMAJO-listed groups, the ADL exerts enormous influence in America. Working closely with Mossad, the FBI, CIA, and Department of Homeland Security (DHS), ADL fronts for Israel without registering as a foreign agent. Using pressure, cajoling, and smear threats, it also demands media compliance, assuring one-sided pro-Israeli coverage.
ADL's Top US Anti-Israeli Groups
In early October, ADL published its top 10 list, including one Jewish-led one, Abe Foxman announcing:
"While there are hundreds of groups that organize and participate in various anti-Israeli activities, we have identified the largest and most well-coordinated anti-Israeli groups. These groups are not promoting peace. They are spreading propaganda to assault Israel's legitimacy. We want Americans to know who (they) are and what it is they really stand for, which is to delegitimize the Jewish state."
"These groups demonize Israel through various public campaigns. Their messages are one-sided and fail to take the complexity of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict into account. They unfairly attack israel while ignoring Palestinian terrorism and incitement. They apply a different standard to Israel than other countries, condemning it for implementing policies to protect its citizens."
The above statement reflects the last refuge of a scoundrel, blaming victims and their supporters, in this case, organizations for peace, equity and justice, unlike ADL and other pro-Israeli groups. Like all Jewish supremacists, they're for Israeli lawlessness, violence, aggressive wars, isolation, home demolitions, land theft, dispossessions, mass imprisonments, torture, targeted assassinations, and continued slow-motion genocide against millions of Palestinians, including besieged Gazans.
ADL's top 10 include:
(1) Act Now to Stop War and End Racism (ANSWER)
Formed post-9/11, it's been activist against war, imperialism, bigotry, and represents other issues, including civil and human rights, and support for Palestinian equity and justice.
(2) Al-Awda, The Palestine Right to Return Coalition
It's "committed to comprehensive public education on the rights of all Palestinian refugees to return to their homes and lands of origin, and to full restitution of all their confiscated and destroyed property," according to international law.
(3) Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR)
In defending civil liberties, freedom of religion, diversity, tolerance, and democratic freedoms, it combats hate groups vilifying Islam and Muslims.
(4) Friends of Sabeel-North America (FOSNA)
It "promotes awareness and understanding" of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict "through educational programs for North American Christians....FOSNA seeks reconciliation between people of the Holy Land in a vision of peace based on principles of a just peace," including "the urgency of ending US support for Israel's illegal military occupation."
(5) If Americans Knew (IAK)
Its mission is "to inform and educate the American public on issues of major significance that are unreported, underreported, or misreported in the American media." It believes conflict resolution and justice depends on revealing truths, ones major US media sources suppress, supporting the worst of Israeli lawlessness.
(6) International Solidarity Movement (ISM)
A Palestinian-led initiative, it's committed to resisting Israel's occupation, oppression, domination, and apartheid through nonviolent, direct-action methods.
(7) Jewish Voice for Peace (JVP)
It seeks equity, peace, security, and self-determination for Israelis and Palestinians alike, through "grassroots organizing, education, advocacy, and media." It's the only US Jewish organization providing a voice for Jews and their allies, who believe that Middle East peace is only possible "through justice and full equality" for Jews and Muslims alike.
(8) Muslim American Society (MAS)
As a religious, charitable, social, cultural, and educational group, its mission is to "move people to strive for God consciousness, liberty, and justice, and to convey Islam with utmost clarity."
(9) Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP)
By "visualiz(ing) the Palestinian struggle," it opposes apartheid and occupation through protests, memorials, and other ways, highlighting their plight against Israeli aggression and occupation.
(10) US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation (USCEIO)
It's a "diverse coalition working for freedom from occupation and equal rights for all by challenging US policy towards the Israeli-Palestinian conflict." Based on human rights and international law, it seeks peace, justice, and conciliation by "chang(ing) the US role," the essential way to do it.
A Final Comment
The contrast between ADL and the above groups is stark and revealing. Claiming human rights credentials, ADL backs the worst of Israeli lawlessness. Organizations like its top 10 support the rule of law, self-determination, equity, nonviolence, conciliation, and the right of everyone in the region to co-exist peacefully - notions Israel and its acolytes won't tolerate, ADL prominent among them.
Asking Obama to take the lead in an October 19 Jerusalem Post interview, Foxman expressed disdain for Palestinian self-determination, saying:
"Now is the time to send a message to the Palestinians and Middle Eastern and European nations that the US will not tolerate and sanction" Palestinians' creating a state unilaterally. "It has to be made clear to the Palestinians that they have to give up this pipe dream that their Arab and European friends (which ones he didn't say) will give them a state without them having to make concessions or sacrifices."
From most people this comment would shock. From Foxman it reflects his advocacy for enforced apartheid, the harsher the better, demanding all, giving nothing, what he's supported throughout his entire professional life, masquerading as a human rights champion.

19 - ADL, Zionist Policies Causing Rise In Anti-Jewish Sentiment
By Leland Lehrman
I am an American citizen of Jewish heritage concerned about the methods and doctrines that the criminal leadership of the Jewish and Zionist hierarchy have promoted worldwide. I feel that Jewish Americans need to affirm loyalty to the Constitution of the United States of America as well as the Ten Commandments and the Golden Rule, rather than the racist attitudes of the Talmud and other Jewish scriptures.
My former intelligence friends are advising that I move quickly to publicize my situation in order to protect myself through publicity.
The central assertion that the ADL makes is that I am "promoting the Protcols of Zion." On the face of it, that is incorrect, because, in fact, I am deploring the Protocols of Zion, which is without doubt, a template for world domination by a criminal elite. There is a debate about its authenticity, but it has not been proven a forgery by any means, and, sadly, it fits neatly into the context of Jewish Supremacist doctrine found the Old Testament, the Talmud and the Zohar. My understanding is that the only court ruling which found it to be a forgery, in Switzerland, was overturned on appeal by the high court of that land. ADL further asserts that by my "promotion of the Protocols of Zion" I am sponsoring anti-semitism of the Nazi variety. This too is libelous as I have always made clear, taking great pains to do so, that the Protocols do not legitimate racial or religious bias, but represent evidence in a criminal case that involves leadership and doctrinal matters.
In my below defense, I present the essential case for the authenticity of the Protocols of Zion. Drawing from the works of Fraser, Shishmareff, Fahey, Dilling, Freedman, Makow, Brafmann and others, it can be easily demonstrated that the Protocols represent the coherent viewpoint of the Jewish Supremacists of the time. If there has been some interpolation (modifications over time incorporating evolving bias) in the Protocols, that would be natural for a historical document. There is evidence of interpolation in the Bible and most historical narratives that have been translated, copied and preserved by historians of varying intellectual prejudices. But nobody accuses biblical scholars of promoting a forgery because the Bible has some interpolations in it. It is not considered illicit behavior to read the Bible although it certainly contains racist statements and even insists in places that the Jewish people will ultimately rule over all other peoples.
So, why is it that the Protocols are so much of an anathema?
There are two reasons:
One is because they have been misused in order to legitimate a policy of racial and religious genocide. In fact, this is all the more reason to determine what the true nature of the Protocols is. In the event they have had such a terrible impact on humankind and in particular, my people, I find it obvious that they should be studied carefully such that through understanding we can determine the proper solution to the problem.
The other reason the Protocols are so anathema is because, sadly, they are most likely authentic, and therefore represent the most thorough indictment of Jewish Supremacism known to man. The shocking assertions, eerily accurate predictions and diabolical Macchiavellian politics espoused by the Protocols is so violently cataclysmic to the man of good intent's understanding of modern history as to virtually guarantee a political and historical awakening which will unavoidably lead to an understanding of the continuing problem of Jewish racism and supremacism. It will also demonstrate that Jewish Supremacism operates on at least an equal footing with Luciferian Freemasonry in the creation of that diabolical political nightmare euphemistically called the New World Order.
This the ADL believes it cannot afford or tolerate, despite the fact that an honest protective strategy for the Jewish people depends on our willingness to confront the doctrines and criminal leadership which are the cause of our troubles. Again, I declare that it is time for Jewish American citizens of good intent to break with the ADL, the criminal spy organization AIPAC and its supremacist leadership and join in the condemnation of Zionist and neoconservative war plans in Iraq, Iran, Syria and thoughout the world. This alone will guarantee us immunity from any blind anti-semitic backlash that we might experience. It will also prevent the anti-semitic backlash in the first place.
Given that speaking the truth about Jewish Supremacism is now considered anti-semitic, and given that Israel is now trying to extradite "holocaust deniers" to Israel or other places where they can be imprisoned, it is time to bring these issues out into the open and to give dissenting citizens of Jewish extraction the right to be heard and demonstrate that we too understand the problem of Jewish Supremacism and in no way support its warlike and police state policies. It is ironic that Zionist Russian mafia criminals are given safe haven in Israel which refuses to extradite them, yet Israel's new law demands the right to extradite "thought criminals." Apparently, truth is not considered to be a valid defense when discussing anti-semitism. Therefore, we are entering a twilight zone which requires the efforts of honest citizens or the truth may not survive these lies.
Honest Jewish people who obey the law of the land and subscribe to the Golden Rule, the Ten Commandments or to natural moral law should have nothing to fear in these times. The ADL makes a mistake when it asserts that people are "not smart enough" to distinguish between racist doctrine and criminal leadership on the one hand and illogical racial bias on the other.
In the tragic case of Germany, to be sure, this happened. However, as someone who lost family in both the holocaust and the Russian pogroms, I assert that were it not for the criminal leadership of the Jewish people in those times, it is unlikely that either the Russian pogroms or the Nazi holocaust would have had any popular support at all.
It is my aim to prevent such tragedies again, but that does not mean I must therefore shield the criminal activities of Jewish elitists. Indeed it is only through assisting in their exposure and removal from power that one can be considered a proponent of justice. To shield criminals from inquiry and prosecution makes one an accessory after the fact - a collaborator.
I will defend the Jewish people as a whole to the last, but it is time that we acknowledge the faults in our doctrine and leadership and expose the criminals who hide behind the more reprehensible among our scriptures. Indeed we should remove these writings from our Holy Books.
It is to this end, and in the interests of my children and family and the future of Mother Earth that I submit the below petition for audience and extended defense of the content of my radio show. It was originally written to address the Jewish Peace Group Tikkun, who was influenced to drop me as a sponsor by the ADL which has been misrepresenting my statements in confrontational meetings with my sponsors around town. Here is that defense:
It is all so saddening, to see the supposed "Peace Movement" unable to discuss Jewish Supremacism. Tikkun should be taking the lead in exposing it from its historic Talmudic origins to its present neconservative and Likud Party basis. Supremacism is hateful, as it generates murderous policy and is anti-human. You know this, so why do you protest when I discuss it? The ADL is quick to denounce White Supremacism and Muslim Fundamentalism, but why do they deny the record of Jewish Supremacism? It is dangerous hypocrisy.
As for the Protocols of Zion, despite the propaganda, learned by most Americans at a curiously young age, they have not been proven to be forgeries. The supposed proofs are of poor quality and are only considered proofs by those who willingly believe propaganda without doing any critical examination. Most people have never even read the Protocols, and therefore do not understand their significance.
Of course, I deplore the use of the Protocols to legitimate the destruction of the Jewish people during WWII, however, that does not make them forgeries any more than the use of the Bible to legitimate the Crusades makes the Bible a forgery.
It is also unfortunate that I must remind the ADL that Jewish bankers assisted in the development of the Third Reich - the Warburg family and their "American Jewish Committee" in particular. It is also known and accepted that Jewish Supremacists like Jacob Schiff and Max Warburg financed and engineered the Bolshevik Revolution and the subsequent destruction of Russia, a holocaust of even larger proportions than the Nazi holocaust. Leon Trotsky (Lev Bronstein) was often seen darting in and out of Jacob Schiff's New York mansion during the days prior to his dispatch to Russia aboard the Kristianafjord. Jacob Schiff's own grandson has asserted that his grandfather gave the Bolsheviks twenty million dollars in order to accomplish the Revolution. When will the Jewish people begin to acknowledge that their "leaders" had a causal responsibility for some of the Twentieth Century's disasters?
As someone with Russian Jewish heritage who also believes in the Golden Rule, I believe that true responsibility comes from acknowledging our "leaders" causal role as part of a self-analysis and confessional road to forgiveness. Why does the ADL and Tikkun insist on the blamelessness and victimhood of the Jewish people when the historical record so obviously records that their "leaders" were guilty at the highest levels? Why do we protect our "Jewish leaders" and accuse the "German people" as a whole in perpetuity? Isn't collective guilt something we abhor? Why do we feel we have to deny truth in order to be "peaceful?" It's just so sad, so irresponsible, so untruthful and cowardly. Peace comes through responsibility, not denial.
I find myself amazed at the institutional and childish refusal of the "Jewish Peace Movement" to critically self examine and to speak out against the Talmudic and Old Testament injunctions legitimizing racist activities.
It is not I who is hateful, but certain Talmudic and Old Testament doctrines - and those who live by their racist and murderous dictates - who are hateful.
Though, sadly, I fear few will actually examine the documentary evidence I will now provide, I will provide it anyway such that you can see that I have in fact done the research on this topic. I would be pleased to discuss this topic with anyone of you, but the current strategy of intimidation is not a legitimate form of discussion.
Before I close, let me just tell you that the ADL of B'Nai B'Rith has already succesfully insisted that I stop discussing the problem of Jewish Supremacism and the Protocols of Zion on the radio, despite the fact that it is completely relevant to the problem of Israeli spying on America, Israeli influence on American Foreign Policy and Israeli sponsored wars in the Middle East which are resulting in widespread carnage among Americans and of course Iraqis and Arabs.
It appears to be the position of Tikkun that we don't want discussion of Jewish Supremacism because we don't want another holocaust in America. I understand that point of view, but I feel like this position actually results in a more dangerous situation for American Jews because by not speaking out forcefully against the Jewish Supremacists in America and Israel who are promoting these disastrous Middle Eastern Wars, we will appear to be sanctioning their activities.
Cindy Sheehan was right when she said that the war in Iraq was being fought in large part for Israel. Although she has denied saying this, and is probably now in fear of her own words for the same reason I am now being persecuted here in Santa Fe, Slate has demonstrated that she did in fact write those words, they are documented in two separate locations on the web, from two different sources. Senator Fritz Hollings said the same thing about Israeli responsibility for the War in Iraq after he retired.
Victor Ostrovsky, Mossad defector described how Saddam was Mossad's main target starting as far back as the '80s. Sure the oil companies are going along with it, but the lead role in the propaganda for the War in Iraq was taken by Doug Feith and the Office of Special Plans who fabricated the intelligence that led us to war. Doug Feith is well known as a right-wing Likud Party operative and lawyer for the Israeli Jewish settlers and yet you dare to criticize me for discussing his obvious motivation? Do you value truth? Do you really value peace? Do you recognize the role truth plays in the creation of peace? No Justice, No Peace is the old saying. Justice in this case requires acknowledgment of just who the perpetrators of the criminal war in Iraq are and what motivates them.
It is ridiculous to suggest that because of Doug Feith's creation of the fabricated WMD intelligence, American Jews should suffer, but if American Jews with political ability do not take a leading role in exposing this sordid story, we may justifiably end up as suspected collaborators.
The motto of the Mossad is "By Way of Deception Thou Shalt Make War." The Lavon Affair proved that Israeli black operations includes targeting Americans with intent to frame Arabs. When Irgun bombed the Hotel King David, they were dressed as Arabs. Wayne Madsen, former Naval intelligence analyst assigned to NSA has exposed the Mossad involvement in September 11th in detail. See if you can refute any of his evidence or analysis here:
Most people in Washington know the truth of Israel's causative role in Iraq, but they won't speak out for fear of AIPAC. Many American Jews know that this is true, but are scared of the implications. I can understand that, but it doesn't make denial any less dangerous or inadequate as a response. Consider the response of this Jewish American who exposed AIPAC in 1992:
"In 1992, AIPAC member Harry Katz phoned the President of AIPAC, David Steiner, to offer contributions. Steiner proceeded to make several claims, including [that he was] negotiating with then-candidate Bill Clinton over who would be Secretary of State, and had already "cut a deal" with Baker for more aid to Israel.
Unknown to Steiner, Katz taped the phone call and gave the recording to the media, worried that AIPAC's influence had grown to dangerous levels.
Following the release of transcripts of the phone conversation, David Steiner was forced to resign the Presidency of AIPAC."
Now that is courage, and responsibility as well.
We are more likely to end up with a resurgence of anti-semitism worldwide if we do not speak out against the Jewish Supremacists in Israel and America who are promoting World War IV. Yes there are other guilty parties, but we cannot blame the Christian and Muslim Fundamentalists, the Skull and Bones hierarchy, the "corporatocracy" and the sundry other culprits and fail to mention Jewish Supremacism. If we try and silence all those who notice its blatant fingerprints, we will be guilty along with the perpetrators. As someone of Jewish heritage, whose extended family suffered in both the pogroms and the Holocaust, I declare that it is the responsibility of "peaceful" Jews of good conscience everywhere to join Norman Finkelstein, Henry Makow, Benjamin Freedman, Israel Shahak, Jacob Brafmann, Neturei Karta and other Jewish leaders in denouncing Zionism, Jewish Supremacism and the racist doctrines of the Zohar, Talmud and Old Testament.
Ultimately, scripture must be revised as our understanding of God changes. It is now time for us to acknowledge that scripture which calls one race or religion "Chosen" to the exclusion of all other people needs to be revised.
Here is a link to the text of the Protocols:
Here a link presenting the essential points of the Protocols in review format:
Here is a link to one of the documents showing the Protocols to be possibly genuine and consistent with a long history of Jewish Supremacist doctrine:
Here is another, by Ivan Fraser:
As an example of Jewish Supremacy in the Bible, here is Ivan Fraser's comment on Deuteronomy:
"Deuteronomy [Chapter 7] reveals the racist, hateful, bloodthirsty and malevolent consciousness of these men who dominated "the Chosen People" and reveals the consciousness of the "God" which they worshipped: 'seven nations greater and mightier than thou [are to be delivered into the Judahite's hands], and: Thou shalt utterly destroy them; thou shalt make no covenant with them. . . ye shall destroy their altars, and break down their images, and cut down their groves, and burn their graven images with fire. . . for thou art a holy people unto the Lord thy God; the Lord thy God hath chosen thee to be a special people unto Himself, above all people that are on the face of the earth. . . Thou shalt be blessed above all people. . . And thou shalt consume all the people which the Lord thy God shall deliver thee; thine eyes shall have no pity upon them. . . And he shall deliver their kings into thine hand, and thou shalt destroy their name from under heaven; there shall no man be able to stand before thee, until thou have destroyed them. . . Thou shalt surely smite the inhabitants of that city with the edge of the sword, destroying it utterly, and all that is therein. . . etc. Furthermore. . . Thou shalt not lend upon usury to thy brother. . . unto a stranger [non-Jew] thou mayest lend upon usury. . . And all the people of the earth shall see that thou art called by the Name of the Lord; and they shall be afraid of thee. . . thou shalt lend unto many nations, and thou shalt not borrow. And the Lord will make thee the head, and not the tail; and thou shalt be above only, and thou shalt not be beneath. . . etc."
It was the above document by Ivan Fraser that first opened my eyes to the well-kept secret of Jewish Supremacism.
Here is another document, perhaps even more capable in its exposition of the case for the authenticity of the Protocols:
While many of the authors of these documents are Christian, there are several Jewish people who know of and publish articles related to the Protocols. Dr. Henry Makow is one such. Here is one of his excellent articles on the topic:
Benjamin Freedman, prominent Jewish defector made a speech about the Zionist effect on World War I and II. It is an eye-opening insider account, to say the least:
And if all that wasn't enough, this online book by Elizabeth Diling will provide more than enough food for thought for several years research and general introspection:
My relatives suffered too for the sins of the banker-priests and fanatics who masquerade as Jewish leaders. There is no moral monopoly on truth. I have a different strategy for Jewish redemption and self-protection than the ADL does. The ADL's attitude considers intimidation a legitimate form of debate. It is not.
Thanks to some courageous non-Zionist Jewish rabbis we have the below record of Zionist collaboration with Nazism and the Holocaust. The racist and sacrificial politics of Zionism come right out and bite you in this quotation and provide all the justification Jewish people need to publicly denounce the Zionist leadership and its supremacist ideology. My people were sacrificed too, in Russian pogroms and German concentration camps. I have the right to speak on this matter. I have the right to examine and to accurately reveal history, and the responsibility to do so.
Excerpt from Sefer Min Hametzar by Rabbi Michael Dov Weissmandl ZT"L Dean of Nitra Yeshiva and author of min hametzar
The following is an excerpt from Sefer Min Hametzar (p-92) by Rabbi Michael Ber Weismandel OB"M. The excerpt is a literal translation of the letter the Jewish Rescue Committee in Czechoslovakia received from the Zionist "Jewish" Agency Executive Officers in Switzerland. This was in reply to the call of the Jewish Rescue Committee for help, with Documentary evidence furnished, concerning the fate of millions of Jewish people in Nazi occupied Europe.
"We are writing to remind you of the one factor of which you must never lose sight: that ultimately, the Allies will win the war. After their victory, territorial boundaries will be reshaped, as they were after the First World War. Then, the way will be clear for our purpose. At this time, with the war drawing to a close, we must do everything in our power to change Eretz Yisroel into Medinat Yisrael and many steps have already been taken in this regard. Therefore, we must turn a deaf ear to the pleas end cries emanating from Eastern Europe. Remember this: all the allies have suffered many losses, and if we also do not offer many human sacrifices, how can we gain the right to sit at the conference table when the territorial boundaries are reshaped?
Accordingly, it is foolhardy and brazen for us to negotiate in terms of money or supplies in exchange for Jewish lives. How dare we ask of the allied powers to barter money for lives whilst they are sustaining heavy casualties daily? So, insofar as the masses are concerned: RAK B'DAM TIHJE LAKU HAAREZ, (Eretz Yisroel will be ours only by paying with blood), but as far as our immediate circle is concerned, ATEM TAJLU. The messenger bearing this letter will supply you with funds for this purpose."
After I accustomed myself to the peculiar writing, I trembled when I realized the import of RAK B'DAM TIHJE LANU HAAREZ. But many weeks passed, and I was still confounded by the meaning of ATEM TAJLU. Until one day, it struck me. ATEM TAJIU meant "You escape", for the word "tiyul" (walking trip) was used by them as a euphemistic code for "escape". They meant to say - you fifteen or twenty "party members", escape from Czechoslovakia and save your hides. The price of Eretz Yisroel is the blood of the men and women, hoary sages, and babes in arms, - but not YOUR blood! Let us not spoil this plan by giving the Axis powers money to save Jewish lives. But for you, comrades, I have enclosed carfare for your escape. What a nightmare! The Zionist agent "diplomat" comes to Czechoslovakia and says 'Now is a very critical time. But comparatively speaking, it is not at all critical for you trapped Jews. For there is an emergency of far greater proportions; namely, BINYAN HA-ARETZ (the prize of Modinat Yisrael). Shed your blood cheerfully, for your blood is cheap. But for your blood, the Land (of Israel) will be ours!"
Finally, no expose of Zionism and Jewish Supremacism would be complete without reference to Lenni Brenner's amazing book, 51 Documents: Zionist Collaboration with the Nazis. Here is a revealing book review by William Hughes, read it and weep:
"51 Documents: Zionist Collaboration With The Nazis Edited by Lenni Brenner, Fort Lee, NJ (Barricade Books, 2002) A Review by William Hughes of Lenni Brenner's book, "51 Documents: Zionist Collaboration with the Nazis"
History can be deceptive. It's fair to say that some of the sensational never-published-before documents, in this book, will shock those who have accepted Zionism and its supposed history, at face value, as a political movement that was the hope of the Jews. Lenni Brenner, the intrepid author of "Zionism in the Age of Dictators," reveals disturbing new evidence in his latest effort, that suggest just the opposite. In fact, he makes a compelling case that the Zionist record was "dishonorable." You can consider this excellent tome as a worthy sequel to his first expose' on the myopic Zionist zealots of that bygone era.
For openers, Brenner showed how the Zionists had a long history of shameless cooperation with the Nazis, especially after the dictator Adolph Hitler had came to power in 1933. The Zionists were also in bed, to some extent, with the other members of what later became known as WWII's "Axis of Evil," that included Benito Mussolini's Italy, and Tojo Hideki's Japan. For example, on March 29,1936, Zionists praised Il Duce, and his regime, at the opening of a maritime school, funded by the Fascist government, at Civitavecchia. This is where a Zionist youth group, the "Betar," trained its sailors for the future Revisionist state. The speakers ignored the fact that on Oct. 3, 1935, Italian troops had invaded Abyssinia.
On another front, the "Third Congress of the Jewish Community of the Far East," was held in Jan., 1940, in Harbin, Manchuria, then reeling under a brutal military occupation by the Japanese imperial forces. At that time, too, Tokyo was already aligned with Hitler and Italy's Mussolini, in the notorious Anti-Comintern Pact. Also, keep in mind, that the Japanese's murderous "Rape of Nanking," had occurred in Dec., 1937, and the "Crystal Night" incident on Nov. 9, 1938. Nevertheless, the Zionist confab went out of its way to legitimize the Japanese occupation by certifying it as a guarantor of the "equality of all citizens," in that beleaguered land.
The Zionist also had a trade plan with the Berlin government by which German Jews could redeem their property in Nazi goods exported to then British-occupied Palestine. And to top it all off, the infamous SS-Hptscharf. Adolf Eichmann, had visited Palestine, in October, 1937, as the guest of the Zionists. He also met, in Egypt, with Feivel Polkes, a Zionist operative, whom Eichmann described as a "leading Haganah functionary." The chain-smoking Polkes was also on the Nazis' payroll "as an informer."
Brenner isn't the first writer to address the mostly taboo subject of how the Zionist leadership cooperated with the Nazis. Rolf Hilberg's seminal "The Destruction of European Jews"; Hannah Arendt's "Eichmann in Jerusalem"; Ben Hecht's "Perfidy"; Edwin Black's "The Transfer Agreement"; Francis R. Nicosia's "The Third Reich and the Palestine Question"; Rudolf Vrba and Alan Bestic's "I Cannot Forgive"; and Rafael Medoff's "The Deadening Silence: American Jews and the Holocaust," also dared, with varying public success.
After the Holocaust began in 1942, Eichmann dealt regularly with Dr. Rudolf Kastner, a Hungarian Jew, whom he considered a "fanatical Zionist." Kastner was later assassinated in Israel as a Nazi collaborator. At issue then, however, was the bargaining over the eventual fate of Hungary's Jews, who were slated for liquidation in the Nazi-run death camps. Eichmann said this about Kastner, the Zionist representative, "I believe that [he] would have sacrificed a thousand or a hundred thousand of his blood to achieve his political goal. He was not interested in old Jews or those who had become assimilated into Hungarian society. 'You can have the others,' he would say, 'but let me have this group here.' And because Kastner rendered us a great service by helping keep the deportation camps peaceful. I would let his groups escape."
Readers, too, will be surprised to learn, that after the Nuremberg Anti-Jewish Race Laws were enacted in Sept., 1935, that there were only two flags that were permitted to be displayed in all of Nazi Germany. One was Hitler's favorite, the Swastika. The other was the blue and white banner of Zionism. The Zionists were also allowed to publish their own newspaper. The reasons for this Reich-sponsored favoritism was, according to the author: The Zionists and the Nazis had a common interest, making German Jews emigrate to Palestine.
As early as June 21, 1933, the German Zionist Federation was sending a secret memorandum to the Nazis, which said, in part:
"It is our opinion that an answer to the Jewish question truly satisfying to the national state [German Reich] can be brought about only with the collaboration of the Jewish movement that aims as a social, cultural and moral renewal of Jewry- -indeed, that such a national renewal must first create the decisive social and spiritual premises for all solutions..."
Incredibly, Avraham Stern, the leader of the notorious "Stern Gang," late in 1940, made a written proposal to Hitler, by which the Jewish militias in Palestine, would fight on "Germany's side," in the war against England, in exchange for the Nazis help in resolving the "Jewish Question" in Europe, and their assistance in creating an "historic Jewish state." By this date, German troops had already marched into Prague, invaded Poland, and had built the first concentration camp at Auschwitz. The deranged Stern had further bragged about how the Zionist organizations were "closely related to the totalitarian movements of Europe in [their] ideology and structure." Stern's obscene proposal was found in the German embassy, in Turkey, after WWII.
Finally, I think Brenner was right, when he wrote, "This book presents 51 historic documents to indict Zionism for repeated attempts to collaborate with Adolf Hitler. The evidence, not I, will convince you of the truth of this issue...Exposing the Zionist role in the [Nazi] era is part of the scrutiny of the past, required of historians."
All of the above becomes even more important today in light of the critical fact that it helps to subject Zionist Israel to the examination called for by its crimes, past and present."
20 - World 'Peace' Through Anti-Hate Laws?
By Rev. Ted Pike
The Bible prophesies that a Jewish world government--presided over by Israel's false messiah, Antichrist--will be established in the last days. Next to the first and second comings of Christ, eventual antichrist world government and God's judgment on it, is probably the Bible's most frequent prophetic theme.
I'm increasingly asked if I think Barak Obama could be the Antichrist. In my new lecture/discussion series, Biblical Answers: Reviving True Christianity, at HYPERLINK "http://www.truthtellers.org" www.truthtellers.org, I consider at length why I do not believe he could.
Scripture makes it clear that the Antichrist is Jewish, the "wicked, profane prince of Israel." (Ezekiel 21:25) Also called Gog, the chief prince of Mesech and Tubal, he is a Russian. Second, Scripture is emphatic that the Antichrist will seize control only after a period of global peace and "tranquility" has been enforced upon the world (Dan. 11:21). The world today is wracked with terrorism and conflict.
How could such global tranquility become reality? It's possible through the eventual establishment of Jewish supremacy's political, economic, financial, media, and military power over the nations - enforcing Jewish anti-hate laws. These laws, ostensibly designed to end the hate that creates war, are now being set up worldwide by the Anti-Defamation League and its parent Jewish supremacist group, B'nai B'rith International.
Establishment of a globalist hate crimes gestapo is moving forward rapidly in Europe. About five years ago, ADL/B'nai B'rith persuaded 56 European nations to join in the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe, dedicated to fight all forms of bias, hate crimes, discrimination and anti-Semitism. Last month in Warsaw, ADL issued a stern directive to OSCE states to hasten total domination of hate laws over Europe - in government, media, education and society ("ADL Calls on OSCE States to Respond to Anti-Semitism and Hate," Oct. 5, 2009, HYPERLINK "
OSCE's report aims to facilitate ADL's dream of worldwide enforced "peace." ADL and OSCE vow to outlaw a major root cause of strife--bias--and thus prevent international armed conflict from ever erupting again.
Ezekiel Foresaw Coming Peace
In Ezekiel 38-9, the prophet sees Israel in the last days as a nation of Jews regathered from the nations and living so securely no one can oppose them. Yet this is not due to God's blessing; Israel is treacherous, unclean, and so wicked He hides His face from her! (Ezekiel 39:23) Israel lives "without bars or gates," without needing conventional national defenses. Her complete safety can't possibly be maintained by idealism or force of arms alone. Instead, mankind has been subdued by overwhelming Jewish power, undoubtedly united with harshly punitive international hate crimes laws, administered from Jerusalem. Such statutes could make it a capital offense (as it was in Jewish Bolshevik Russia) to criticize Jews - including the Jewish claim of six million Holocaust dead.
The Talmud and Zohar, modern Judaism's highest religious authorities, make it clear that when their Messiah (Antichrist) comes, all "idolaters" will be destroyed--especially those who worship "the false prophet," Jesus.
This is the direction we are taken by OSCE and Obama's recently passed hate law. The coming "son of perdition," because of his charisma, power, and Jewish identity, will be accepted by Israel as her new spiritual husband - in place of the true One she crucified more than 2,000 years earlier.
Thirty-five hundred years ago God (Jesus) chose Israel as His spiritual bride among the nations. First to have spiritual relations with Him through faith, she was first to prostitute that relationship. Many religious systems have become spiritual harlots, but Israel is the "mother "of that scarlet sorority. Especially after her crucifixion of Jesus, only she is qualified to have her forehead branded "Mother of harlots and abominations of the earth." (Rev. 17:5) Someday, having at last found her long-sought Messiah, the Great Harlot makes a covenant with the Antichrist and rules the world with him for three and a half years from Jerusalem.
Antichrist Turns upon the Jews
The Antichrist, however, is assassinated, probably by jealous Jewish leaders. He then rises from the dead in imitation of Jesus and turns with terrible fury upon the Jews. Gathering his confederate nations, the Antichrist, who is called "Gog," comes against Israel and his armies cover the land (Ezekiel 38, 39). Fulfilling Daniel's prophecy, "he will destroy many while they are at ease" (Daniel 8:25), he encircles and ravages Jerusalem, killing two-thirds of Jews within the city. He then desecrates the Jewish temple (the Abomination of Desolation) and sits in the temple declaring himself to be God.
Surviving Jews are once again exiled to the nations (Ezekiel 39:23, 28). This fulfills God's timeless, oft-repeated law that a nation of rebellious, Christ-rejecting Jews cannot long endure in a land dedicated to holiness. The entire world, insane with fury at what Israel did to enslave mankind, attempts to destroy every last Jew from planet Earth. For most of three and a half years, a Jewish remnant, pursued to every corner of the earth, will face imminent extinction. Finally, at a moment known only to God, Jesus Christ returns, like lightning shining from one end of the heavens to the other. The remnant at last believes upon Him whom their fathers crucified. Christ leads them back to Palestine to occupy His holy land with Him for a thousand years -- the only divinely approved national occupation of Palestine for at least two millennia.
Obama does share a number of antichrist characteristics. Yet, Antichrist, when he comes, will be like a great mountain filling the earth, crushing all resistance and eliciting the worship of all mankind. The world is not yet degenerate enough to worship Satan incarnate who will sit in a rebuilt Jewish temple in Jerusalem, proclaiming himself God.
Where are we in this prophetic timeline?
We are in the foothills of Antichrist, while Obama, his prophet, prepares the way before him.
21 - Confronting The Zionist Predator
By Rev. Ted Pike
With increasing frequency, secular and Jewish media refer to an "explosion" of anti-Semitism and criticism of Israel. The Anti-Defamation League says hatred of Jews proliferates in academia, liberal Christian denominations, and racist groups. But above all, says the ADL, it radiates from Islam in the Middle East. (See,
For Jewish propagandists who want to silence criticism, there are two advantages in alleging that Islamic thinking is the wellspring of anti-Semitism. First, this claim further blackens Islam, which is the primary opponent in the Middle East to Zionist domination of the region. Secondly, it underscores the ADL's allegation that the internet carries the global anti-Semitic plague. Islamic terrorism, ADL says, is a compelling reason to bring the internet under stringent "anti-hate" restrictions.
But is Islam the real seedbed of resistance to activist Judaism? The truth is very different. The historic response of the Islamic world to the Zionist threat has always been largely inarticulate and disorganized. The most searching and scholarly criticism of Jewish supremacy comes primarily from western nations.
To understand where much of the unfettered investigation and resultant criticisms of Israel and Judaism have originated, we must go back about 25 years when such outspokenness was extremely repressed. During the 20th century, there were always a few voices criticizing Zionism and international Jewry. Winston Churchill, Henry Ford, Charles Lindbergh, Rev. Charles Coughlin, and Gerald L. K. Smith are most notable. Unlike Hitler, none were really anti-Semitic, though vilified as such by the Jewish media. They realistically appraised and spoke out against the increasing threat of liberal Jewish activism in media, finance and government of western societies.
Yet none made a dent in the rapidly ascending support of Israel by American evangelicals. Zionist propaganda dominated western nations during the 20th century. As late as the 1980s and 90s, criticism of matters Jewish remained very socially dangerous. ADL closely watched the local scene in America; if anyone publicly criticized Jews, ADL and local media were instant to crucify that person before a scorning, ADL-indoctrinated church and public. (My parents and I experienced such treatment several times.) Being labeled anti-Semitic was almost as damaging to reputations as being accused of child molestation. ADL is much more cautious today, having cried "anti-Semitism!" too loosely, too often.
Bridging the Gap
I realized, even during college, that an enormous threat to Christian civilization was being obscured; a bridge of education must be created to bring reality to American evangelicals. From 1969 to 1984, I studied not only the Talmud and Zohar but the Bible. I was intent on creating a biblically oriented and moderated message of the whole truth about Talmudic Judaism. Only a biblically tempered tool of communication would ever compel my fellow evangelicals to listen.
In 1984, my book Israel: Our DutyOur Dilemma was finally published. It contained an unprecedented boldness to tell the whole, often ugly, truth about a religion founded by the ancient Pharisees. It also expressed the biblical perspective of God's love and destiny for the Jewish people. First advertised in The Spotlight newspaper, it instantly filled an enormous vacuum and sold in record number. It was followed in 1987 by the video version of my book, The Other Israel. Immediately, sales soared as tens of thousands bought, copied, and recopied this VHS video throughout America and the world. (Watch
ADL became very worried. It made my book and video the subject of conferences from Seattle to New York. Norman Lear, Jewish head of People for the American Way, attacked me nationally in a mass mailing to all evangelical churches in America. Yet, by that time, (in response to a mass invitation) 15,000 evangelical pastors in America had already requested and received a free copy of my book. Not one responded to PAW's invitation to denounce me.
Countless lovers of freedom know the rest. Acquiring the tremendous advantages of the internet and then alternative talk radio, Truthtellers.org spoke to a worldwide audience against hate crimes legislation and the mounting threat of liberal Jewish supremacy.
As early as 1984, I spoke an alternative, Christian message against Talmudic Judaism that was more researched, specific and revealing than almost any before me. I went out on the untested ice of total truthtellingand survived! The fact that I survive, free of intelligent criticism for almost a quarter century, has given incalculable encouragement to thousands.
Now I have been joined on what seemed precariously thin ice. Many speak out against the activism of Talmudic Judaism. Instead of sinking, we truthtellers have proven it much deeper and stronger than anyone imagined. As a founding strategist against Jewish supremacism, may I boldly enunciate the best plan to achieve not just stalemate against this ultimate predator, but victory at least in our time?
Two Failed Strategies
During the past 2000 years, Talmudic Judaism has encountered two types of opposition: The first is racism. Throughout history, the world, learning of the Talmudic/Kabbalistic hatred of Christians and Gentiles (and often seeing Jewish supremacists epitomize it), has responded with anger, racial contempt, and even violence. Yet such outrage has never stopped this conspiracy for long; it only intensifies its resolution to persevere through other devious channels. Persecution of Jews is actually used by Judaic spinmasters as grist for the "suffering Jew" mystique, generating enormous perennial sympathy.
Because Islam has a history of warfare and violence against "infidels" (including Israelis) as a means of achieving its goals, Islam is easily linked in the minds of the public with the bigotry and violence of Fascist Nazism. Jewish media has easily created an affinity between Islam and Fascism (Islamofascism) that the public uncritically accepts. Building on public awareness of Nazi anti-Semitic, racist propaganda, ADL now alleges a very similar message erupts from Islamic ideologues in the Middle East.
Yet ADL is comfortable dealing with anti-Semitic opposition. It knows racists have never ultimately prevailed in the past and they have even less chance today, with Jews dominating governments and big media. They know that racism is doomed to failure because it violates the instinctive idealism, generosity, and fair play of mankind. Such altruism, especially toward historic victims like Jews, will always remain much stronger than racism's bitter, divisive message.
The second form of opposition to Jewish supremacism is replacement theology. In medieval times, both western and eastern branches of the church often taught that Christians are now "God's chosen people." Replacement theologians say He is finished with any covenant with the Jews.
Like Islam, such theology is vulnerable to attack--by both Jews and evangelicals. Its abandonment of the Jewish nation in God's plan is described as unbiblical, mean-spirited and engendering anti-Semitism. Critics contend that replacement theology encouraged persecution of Jews and could do so again.
Because God's covenant with Israel saturates the Bible, most evangelical Christians sincerely (and rightly) reject replacement theology. They correctly desire to preserve God's investment and destiny for the Jews. Unfortunately, most Christians are so repulsed that they don't just reject replacement theology; they reject vital truth about Zionist/Talmudic conspiracy that many believers in replacement theology try to bring.
Instead of combating Zionism by removing Israel's privileged status in God's plan, replacement theology powerfully assists Zionists by alienating evangelicals. (See,
ADL: Afraid of www.truthtellers.org
Twenty-five years ago, I was determined not to make the mistakes of racists and replacement theologians. Biblical benevolence towards the Jewish people, far from being a handicap, was a heaven-sent bridge to Israel-first evangelicals. It is therefore extremely significant that Jewish supremacy is extremely vocal against both racialist and replacement theology positions; but they can't speak a word of intelligent criticism against me. They cannot deal with the new, biblically founded "curveball" that I throw them!
The most effective, long-term offensive is found in the biblical perspective. The Bible says that God has a wonderful destiny for a remnant of repentant Jews at His second coming; nevertheless, Talmudic Judaism exists in deep apostasy and spiritual darkness. It can and must be thoroughly criticized, as did Christ and the Prophets.
I believe ADL may be diverting attention to militant Islam as the ideological source of anti-Semitism because it absolutely does not want the world to know that the most creative, high-minded thinking and action against Jewish supremacism largely resides in the United States. There exists, in America, an adversary, called
What we see then is the wisdom and provision of the Almighty to secure for His church in the last days an ideological weapon of defense just when it is most sorely needed. This is a weapon not of man's making but of God's. Like David's small smooth stone that felled Goliath, the biblically based message at
ADL is worried about what's happening at
22 - Israel Shamir - A Hellenizing Jew
We repeat what we consider to be an important point made by Shamir in this talk -- a point made over and over again on this site -- which is that the non-affiliated, average Jew has never been and is not now the problem; the problem is the atheistic, supremacist, organized, Zionist Jew, who is, and has historically been, a determined revolutionary "against the Christian order."
Israel Shamir is a distinguished writer and journalist, a linguist, BBC commentator, former spokesman for the Israeli socialist party in the Knesset, and translator of many books from English and Hebrew. He is also a convert to Christianity who fought for Israel as a paratrooper in the 1973 war. In a recent talk he gave in Spain to launch his newest book The Green Rain of Yasuf or Masters of Discourse (titled The Flowers of Galilee in English), he spoke about Zionism as being "...just the most recent phase of a determined opposition to the Christian order that goes all the way back in time." (Emphasis added.)
Shamir is able to say and write about things that -- in the politically correct climate currently limiting free speech in America (while its proponents hypocritically mouth platitudes about how "diversity is our strength") -- would automatically brand a Gentile as a "hate-filled anti-Semite." Things that will, if the ADL, JDL, WJC, AIPAC, and other such crypto-Zionist, Israel-first organizations have their way, soon be prohibited by the "Hate Speech" legislation they are pushing for in America. The same kind of legislation their sister organizations have successfully lobbied into law in countries like Germany, France, Canada, and, in the near future should current trends continue, the entire European Union. If or when this unhappy day arrives in the "land of the free and the home of the brave," it will be illegal to write, say, and, if enforcement of such a prohibition were possible, think such things as were said by Shamir in Spain. Here are some examples excerpted from an article about Shamir by Tom White in Culture Wars magazine (July/Aug. 2004. pp. 6 -9.): When I wrote so [that the war was about Israel] in the series of articles presented in this book over a year ago, it was a wild opinion shared by a selected few; while the majority was fed by stories of a war for liberation of Iraqis, a war for democracy in Iraq, a war against terror, a war to stop Saddam's Weapons of Mass Destruction, or a war for oil. A year passed and all these explanations vanished like smoke in the night. No WMD were found in devastated Iraq; no connections to al-Qaeda were revealed by tortured prisoners of Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo; liberation of Iraq turned out to be the brutal occupation regime; as for oil, at the beginning of the war, the price of oil stood at 20 dollars a barrel, while now it is about 40 [actually, it is approaching 50 as this is being written]. The oil companies that were blamed for pushing for the war are pulling out of Iraq, and oil production is well below its prewar levels. On the 29th of April, 2004, the Guardian reported that BP decided to leave Iraq, saying that the oil company has no future there.
It leaves us exactly with one reason for the war, the reason we stated over a year ago. Sometimes it is called "the war for Israel," but this definition misses the point; the state of Israel does not need this war for its safety; Israelis do not need this war for their well-being. The Jews can live as equals in Palestine or elsewhere; but they want to dominate water, land, and the souls of the others. For this reason they kill children and ruin homes of Palestinians in Gaza and Iraqis in Faluja. This is the war for Jewish supremacy waged by the U. S. proponents of this concept, against the principle of equality of all dwellers in the Holy Land. In such a war, Spain has no reason to side with the forces of Jewish supremacy, to provide cover for mass destructions in Palestine and for mass tortures in Abu Ghraib and Guantanamo.
In referring to the bad rap Spain has historically been given as an inhuman and exploitative colonizer, Shamir went on to say that
Spain has no reason to fight for Jewish racism as your country has a glorious anti-racist record often distorted in modern Jewish narrative, which became the dominant Anglo-American discourse. You are blamed for [the] so-called expulsion of 1492. But [the] majority of exiled Jews came back, gave up their racist tradition of superiority, agreed to share bread and wine with other Spaniards -- for that is the meaning of [the] Eucharist -- and became honorable citizens of Spain. Saint Teresa of Avila and Saint Juan de la Cruz are the shining examples of their glory.
On the other hand, England under Cromwell accepted the exiled Jews and received kudos from the "Masters of Discourse" [i.e., militant, organized revolutionary Jews] for this deed. They do not speak of its connection with fencing out the English commoners, with [the] massacre of Irish peasants and Scots, and with [the] massive genocide of Native Americans in their colonies; but the regimes that are "good for Jews" are rarely good for anybody else.
In referring to the current state of affairs in the U. S. and Russia, Shamir remarked:
Indeed it is a mistake to think that theology is an irrelevant occupation of useless clerics, while only material possessions matter. Theology is the deep foundation on which the palace of society is built. Without foundations, the palace will collapse at a blow of a strong wind, let alone an earthquake. It was the reason for [the] Soviet collapse: quasi-religious communism had no strong theological foundation and did not survive.
In the "neo-Jewish" U. S., the Judaic paradigm came forth in place of apostolic Christianity, and with it the New World Order of a dwindling middle class, vast security apparatus, growing social gaps, and impoverishment of spirit. It is not the first time the Judaic paradigm [as opposed to the Helleno-Christian] rises in the world; but such societies invariably collapse for they lack a broad social base. Now its proponents have decided to ensure its survival by making it globe-wide; this is the reason of wars and expansion, for their design would not survive on any smaller scale. (Emphasis added.)
Shamir commented upon the dog and pony show known as the politics of the "Left" and "Right" which currently prevails in the West, and then offered some revisionist insights concerning World War II:
The tragic and destructive confrontation of Left and Right reached its peak in your [Spanish] Civil War and at World War II, where the two great antibourgeois movements, "left and right disciples of Hegel" shed their blood ad majorum U.S. glorium, to the greater glory of the neo-Judaic U. S., the ultimate winner of [the] war. ... Nowadays, we have pseudo-Left and pseudo-Right, for there is no difference between Thatcher and Blair, Bush and Kerry -- both equally support Israel in its drive for supremacy. In Spain and France, the left and the right-wing newspapers were united in their condemnation of The Passion of The Christ by Mel Gibson as "offensive to Jews." Thus, instead of Left and Right, we have a new dichotomy, a new split, by attitude to Judaic supremacy. Today the U. S. fights the Muslims for Israel, but [Samuel] Huntington, the leading theorist of the war, is already calling to contain the Hispanics in the U. S. as they are not sufficiently devoted to the Jewish cause. (Emphasis added.)
[The same concern was also raised in a speech by Dr. Stephen Steinlight, a high-ranking Zionist, and former director of the powerful American Jewish Council, who argued that immigration into the U. S. must be slowed in order to give the Zionist-controlled media time to assimilate the Hispanics already in America with its MTV and Holocaust (sic) type of programming, so as to make them more sensitive to Jewish interests and more amenable to Jewish manipulation. For more on Steinlight, and the other means by which the Zionists control the boobs in America, see "Kitsos on the Rising Tide of Color".]
Shamir ended his talk with an emotional appeal to the ancient and venerable Christian traditions of Spain:
Spain has an important role to play, for Spain is inherently connected with the Land of Christ and Saint James, your favorite saint, whom you call Santiago. This Palestinian fisherman was beheaded by orders of Sharon's predecessor, King Herod Antipas, and his head was taken by his disciples to your shores to be be interred in Santiago de Compostella, but his heart remained buried in Jerusalem, and [the] Cathedral of Saint James rose above his tomb, equally venerated by Palestinian Christians and Muslims, for in our land Christians and Muslims live together in great peace and harmony, sharing the same places of veneration and -- no less important -- the same enemy. Their enemy is not "the Jew," for Jews can live peacefully with Spaniards and Palestinians, but the spirit of Judaic supremacy, which has to be defeated, and will be defeated. (Emphasis added.)
Though we may disagree with his politics, we consider Shamir to be a remarkable man whose love for his fellow Jews, and for humanity as a whole, shines through his work. It is worthy of note, and has been mentioned and demonstrated on this site, that the most persuasive and well-reasoned criticism of the terrorist state of Israel is not coming from the dimwitted skin-heads in their Nazi-like uniforms and their thuggish mannerisms (who are presented to us by the controlled media as being typical of the dissenters to Israeli aggression), but by the most intelligent and historically aware segment of the population. Such a segment would naturally include many right-thinking Jews, not a few of whom have been quoted or written about here on TGR.
We repeat what we consider to be an important point made by Shamir in this talk -- a point made over and over again on this site -- which is that the non-affiliated, average Jew has never been and is not now the problem; the problem is the atheistic, supremacist, organized, Zionist Jew, who is, and has historically been, a determined revolutionary "against the Christian order." This "revolutionary Jew" sees Helleno-Christianity as his most formidable ideological enemy, and as the greatest stumbling block to his psychotic fixation of making the world over to suit his power-lusting fantasies. And just as one must not be considered a Greek-hater because he is unalterably opposed to such slime as the Greek November 17th criminal gang of terrorists, one should not be labeled a Jew-hater because he is unalterably opposed to the criminal state of Israel as it is currently ruled over by the terrorist-spawning Likud party, and its homicidal and psychopathic leader, Ariel Sharon.
Shamir's unabashed and historically accurate assessment of what happens to a society condemned to live under what he refers to as the "Judaic paradigm," i.e., "a dwindling middle class, vast security apparatus, growing social gaps, and impoverishment of spirit," is precisely what is happening in what he rightly describes as the "neo-Jewish US" today. So "in-your-face," comprehensive and entrenched are the cultural, and political changes that have been imposed by the all-powerful American Zionists in what used to be an almost exclusively Christian country, and so blatantly at odds are these changes with the norms and values that have traditionally characterized our Western Civilization, that -- though we applaud his skills as a chronicler of events -- we cannot concede the role of expert prognosticator to Israel Shamir when he predicts the defeat of "the spirit of Judaic supremacy.".
As we look around us, we see that the tail of Zionism is wagging the dog that goes by the name of America, and, as we have previously warned so often on this site, "... if America comes under the total control of the Zionists, that country will enter a period of dissolution, debauchery, and nihilistic decay that will rival the corruption, venality, and degeneracy that characterized the Zionist-inspired obscenity known as the Soviet Union. The repercussions of this darkest of dark ages will be felt around the world, and tiny Hellas may not be able to keep its candlelight of hope for humanity from being extinguished by the all-consuming darkness.
May an All-Merciful God prevent this ever happening to a world that is overwhelmingly undeserving of such a fate.
Jews And The Empire
By Israel Shamir
(A Talk given in the House of Lords, Westminster, on February 23, 2005)
Ladies and Lords, Gentlemen, Friends,
It is a great honour for this small writer from far-away Jaffa to speak to you in this ancient abode of democracy and aristocracy intertwined, and I wish to thank my host tonight, my dear brother, his lordship Nazir Ahmed of Rotherham in the heather-bound Yorkshire. I would give much to have another dear friend present here, the late Sir Robin, Lord Phillimore for much of my love and understanding of England is due to this friendship. I was but a pup, a young journalist, who came to work at your renowned BBC, and the Lord Phillimore was my bridge and my guide to the good old England of Pickwick Papers, for his home stood in this most English swat of land near Henley-on-Thames. Thus England became a love of my youth, England of pubs serving Brakespear Old Fashioned ale, of neat green squares of Kensington where I lived, of milk bottles on doorstep, of the punchy smell of bacon-and-eggs and burned toast in the morning, of the pleasant feel of the Guardian pages, of the calm bonhomie of English people, of your lovely maidens who are able to propose and prepare a nice cup of tea in the least suitable moment, of your men with their fair play, the green sweet and somewhat parochial England of Blake, Hopkins, Waugh and G K Chesterton, England as opposed to the Empire.
Much as I love England I came to dislike the Empire. The Empire was a vile 19th century invention. The Empire ruined Iraq and used poison gases against its citizens long before the present Bush-and Blair offensive. No land was too far or too near to be safe from the Imperial assaults: from Shimonoseki in South of Japan to Gondor in mountains of Ethiopia, from Beijing to Archangelsk, from the fishermen, city of Oriente in Brittany to Baghdad, from Dublin to Kandagar, from Dresden in Saxony to Akka in Palestine, the Empire bombed them all. And I do not speak of some long gone days of Queen Anne, but of last hundred fifty years since the fateful accent of your first Zionist ruler, Lord Beaconsfield.
In our country, in Palestine, much of present sorrows are result of the Imperial intervention. The first Intifada, the great Arab revolt of 1936-1939, caused by the creeping Zionist takeover, was crushed by the Imperial forces with great severity. Thousands of native Palestinians were killed, executed, hanged, expelled from their land. The Arab defeat, al-Nakba of 1948 can't be understood without the context of the previous Imperial war against the Palestinians. The Zionist armies administered the coup-de-grace to the disarmed, bleeding, powerless rural population whose elite and best fighters were eliminated by the Empire.
Oh, you say, why should we remember it now? We can't let bygones be bygones for the Empire is not a thing of past. Like a monstrous parasite it migrated after sucking the juice of the Brits. Its capital was relocated to Washington and New York, while England remained a subservient part of Empire, a Greece to the New Rome, or rather a Tyre to the new Carthage. Not only your RAF assists the Americans, but your BBC, once a paragon of objectivity, became a propaganda tool for the New Empire.
I did not come to condemn you but to offer my condolences, for England is one of the Imperial victims. I came first time to your land some thirty years ago, and since then the Empire eats you up as much as it eats everybody else. London became a faceless cosmopolitan city, your cinema is destroyed, your streets are taken by international chains of shops, your newspapers belong to Zionists, and there is a danger the English will be turned into human dust by the Imperial burden as the Romans and Macedonians of old, to be followed by the Americans.
The Empire is not particularly good for people, including the people of the mother country. Let us consider Palestine. Thousands of young British men died in order to conquer Palestine and give it to the Jews. They committed many atrocities, killed a lot of natives, and enforced Jewish supremacy in Palestine. They received no gratitude. Elder people maybe remember the subsequent Zionist terrorist attacks on the British troops, the assassination of Lord Moyne, maybe they remember the two British sergeants who were kidnapped and hanged by the Jews, and their dead bodies were defiled, booby-trapped by the killers. Menachem Begin, our late Prime Minister, was particularly proud of it. Younger people won't even know it, for your media, the mind and the nervous system of the nation, is hijacked by Zionists like Conrad Black and Murdock, and they won't allow this knowledge to be remembered.
But it is vital to remember, for the new empire continues the ways of the old. Now in Iraq, the US and its British dependency continue the same old fight for ensuring Jewish supremacy in the Middle East, for England - or even English business - has no need to be in Baghdad and Basra. Indeed, in the Middle East we have just one reason for wars, terror and trouble - and that is Jewish supremacy drive. In our country, Israel or Palestine, we can have peace today, if we were to agree to equality of Jew and non-Jew. But this principle, so carefully observed in Europe, is anathema to the Jews in Israel. Like in England before the reforms of 1832, your predecessors would not agree to equality of a lord and a commoner before the law; or in Rhodesia of Ian Smith, the white settlers did not want to be equal with the blacks.
Well, so Jews do not want to be equal. But why should you assist them in their pursuit of supremacy? There is an American joke [of Jay Leno]: "If God doesn't destroy Hollywood Boulevard, he owes Sodom and Gomorrah an apology." Indeed, if England keeps supporting the apartheid Jewish state, it owes an apology to Rhodesia and South Africa. Why, indeed, it does? This is not a rhetoric question. Why the New Empire went to war, committed itself to the vast expenses and dangers, antagonised bigger part of the world - and all that in the interests of Jewish supremacy?
In my book - that is the one I came to promote - I try to explain why the Jews have a special place in the Imperial conscience. Superficially, one can explain it by personalities, by the special position of the Neo-cons in Washington and of the Jewish media-lords in the US and elsewhere. Jews indeed own, control and edit a big share of mass media, this mainstay of Imperial thinking; just last month a Rothschild bought the French daily Liberacion, and an Israeli citizen bought a TV 4 channel in Sweden. This is a valid observation, but not sufficient.
The New Empire, even more than the old one, is infused with Judaic values on an ideological and theological level. This is the thing I try to deal with, because preoccupation with ethnic or religious origins of a person is not only improper but often misleading. Indeed, the strongest enemies of the Judaic values are often people of Jewish origin. Allow me to mention St Paul, Karl Marx and Simone Weil to make my point clear. Another example can be provided by Sir Carl Popper, a colleague of yours who referred to the Judaic concept of chosen-ness as "vile,. He also rejected an approach of a Jewish Year Book to have him included, for he said, he does not believe in race and has nothing to do with Jewish faith or values - despite his Jewish origin. Do not concentrate on ethnics, look for ideology. In your case, Michael Howard is less Judaic than Tony Blair, for the first objects to removal of British liberties and to sweeping anti-Muslim legislation, while the second brought this country into the Iraqi war for Israeli interests.
While a Judaic tendency is just an ideological tendency, a special feeling towards Jews is a symptom of certain pro-Imperial predisposition. For instance, Tony Blair is a great supporter of the Empire. But even if we would not know that, we would be able to guess: for he expressed unlimited support of the Jewish state. The Jewish state is the country where a Jew has more rights than a non-Jew. Three to four million of our native residents have neither right of vote nor citizenship rights for a single fault: they are not Jews. Do not forget, Rhodesia was dismantled for the equal sin of ethnic or racial supremacy.
This feeling that "Jews are special, found now its expression in the story of Ken Livingstone and his sin coming hard on the heels of Prince Harry and his mishap. Actually, I have heard that at the next costume ball, Prince Harry will be dressed as Ken Livingstone. The Ken,s story is simple: the Mayor was rude to a hack. Being a journalist, I sympathise with the journalist; but being rude to is our professional hazard. However, the insult was blown well over normal proportions. If Ken would be equally insulting to a member of Royal family, he will be forgiven if not encouraged. But here - even the Students, Union decided to ban Ken.
Your anti-racist feelings do not come into it. Some time ago I watched the Hard Talk with Tim Sebastian on the BBC. Tim was grilling a Uganda Asian businessman living in England. He told him: well, you Asians in Uganda were heavily engaged in the black market activities, smuggled hard currency abroad, despised the natives and refused to marry them. Actually the same accusations were traditionally levelled against Jews. If Tim would just try to say it to a Jew he would be kicked out of his job same day. But applied to the Muslims - they did not cause a stir. It was just a Hard Talk. So it is not "anti-racism,. In my view, this unbelievable out-of-proportion response to Ken,s affair shows again a mysterious connection of Jews and the new Empire.
One reason is that Jews like an Empire. If there is a choice between an England and an Empire, the Jews prefer an Empire. Benjamin Ginsberg, the Professor of Political Science at John Hopkins University, wrote a book on this subject, called Jews and the State: The Fatal Embrace and he attests to this Jewish love of Empire. Any Empire: Franz Josef, the last Emperor of Austro-Hungarian Empire, used to say that Jews are the most loyal of his subjects. In your country, Disraeli was equally proud of his Jewish ancestry and devoted to the Empire-building.
A Jewish joke tells of two Jewish brothers in revolutionary Odessa; one of them emigrated to England and became a peer of the realm, another one remained in Russia, suffered as much as anybody, and eventually the Russian brother was invited by his British brother to London. The brother arrived, received English citizenship, had whale of time, went to Covent Garden, maybe to the Palace, at night the brothers come home, and the Russian brother began to cry. "Oh do not cry, told him the English brother, you had your life, I had mine, it could happen other way around. "You did not understand me, - says the Russian brother, - I weep for India we have lost.
This love of Empire explains the easiness Jews change their allegiance - indeed, the same people who were all for the Russian or French or British Empire now became ardent supporters on the new American Empire. Simple minds call it "treacherous behaviour" but it is actually love of Empire per se, and it does not matter who is the titular head of this Empire: Jews are good for an Empire, as long as they feel the Empire is good for them.
Now, there is a large and thriving Muslim community in England. In my view, Islam is a form of Christianity, even nearer to the Nicene Creed than some Pentecostals or other American denominations. What is more important, they are now on the side of freedom, against the Empire, and they are not afraid of enforcers of Judaic values, Jewish or Gentile. This community is very important in order to turn the tide. Let us hope that its introduction will be important for England,s future.
This is the right time to overcome left-right divide: if Michael Howard stands on the right - for liberties - and Blair stands on the left - and for anti-Muslim legislation, for police control and for war, the terms have little relevance today. There are friends and enemies of the Empire in all your major political parties, and equally all the parties are Zionist-infiltrated. There is a need for new realignment in order to unite anti-Imperial forces for full withdrawal of British troops from overseas, for independence of England from the American Empire.
In the Apple Cart by Bernard Shaw, the US makes a bid to take over England, and a wise monarch keeps its independence. Disentanglement of England from the US embrace is much needed, an answer to the Boston Tea Party is called for.
23 - New Book Advocates Jewish Supremacy
Ultra-Orthodox Officials Go To Bat for Anti-Gentile Book
By Steven I. Weiss
Forward, New York 1-22-4
A new book describing Gentiles as evil and inferior is causing controversy in the Jewish community. While some think it is a true reflection of Talmud and Torah teaching which should be expressed, others are fearful that an open statement of their shared sense of Jewish supremacy could lead to backlash among those who are not "Chosen." In this article, one Jewish newspaper describes the debate.
Is this 'hate'? If a book advocating gentile supremacy was published, would Jews demand 'hate crime' charge be filed?
NEW YORK--A leading ultra-Orthodox organization has launched a campaign to shift attention from a controversial book on Jewish superiority, choosing instead to attack the Forward's reporting on it.
Agudath Israel of America has refused to condemn the book by Rabbi Saadya Grama, published in Hebrew under the title "Romemut Yisrael Ufarashat Hagalut," which can be translated in several ways, including "The Grandeur [or Superiority] of Israel and the Question of Exile." Instead, several Aguda officials have sought to discredit the Forward's account of the work.
The Aguda's response contrasted sharply with that of the nation's most prominent ultra-Orthodox yeshiva, Beth Medrash Govoha in Lakewood, N.J., whose religious leaders had given the self-published book a pre-publication endorsement.
Questioned by the Forward last month, the yeshiva's religious leader, Rabbi Aryeh Malkiel Kotler, issued a statement saying he had not read the book carefully before endorsing it, but was repudiating its "alleged" contents. Grama, the author, is a graduate of the yeshiva, and such perfunctory pre-publication endorsements of graduates' works are common, Kotler said.
"In looking at the specific points allegedly contained in the sefer [book], I can certainly tell you that they are not reflective of normative Jewish thought and are certainly not the philosophy of our yeshiva," Kotler said in his statement.
GENTILES 'COMPLETELY EVIL'
In its December 19 article, the Forward reported that "Romemut Yisrael" describes gentiles as "completely evil," constituting an inferior "species."
One member of the Aguda's ruling Council of Torah Sages, Rabbi Avraham Chaim Levin, publicly described the Forward article on the book as an anti-Semitic "blood libel," while acknowledging never having read "Romemut Yisrael."
Speaking January 3 at an Aguda convention near Chicago, Levin approvingly cited a critical letter sent to the Forward by David Zwiebel, the organization's director of government and public affairs. In an interview Tuesday with the Forward, Zwiebel acknowledged sending many Orthodox leaders copies of private letters that he had written to Forward editor J.J. Goldberg attacking the initial coverage of the book.
The Forward article, said Levin, a widely respected Aguda leader, "is reminiscent of the blood libel trial of Beilis, in which the anti-Semitic prosecutor researched talmudic and midrashic literature to find any hints of any statements which would be derogatory about gentiles."
"You would not expect this type of anti-Semitism from a Jewish newspaper," Levin said. A video clip of the speech was obtained by the Forward.
In his speech, Levin cited Zwiebel's letter, saying: "He says he read the book thoroughly, and [that] there is not a single passage in the book which can remotely be seen as embracing deception or duplicity to gentiles, nor any allusion to genetic superiority."
Following the speech, the Forward faxed photocopied sections of Grama's book to Levin and several other members of the Aguda's Council of Torah Sages, but by press time none had returned phone messages seeking comment.
In its initial coverage, the Forward quoted condemnations of the book by an official at the Anti-Defamation League and by Rabbi Norman Lamm, chancellor of Yeshiva Univesity and dean of its affiliated rabbinical seminary. Both based their criticisms on translated passages and summaries provided to them by the Forward.
The book was subsequently condemned by the brother of the Lakewood leader, Rabbi Aaron Kotler, who serves as the yeshiva's chief executive officer. In an interview with the New Jersey Jewish News, Kotler stated without qualification that the ideas in Romemut Yisrael are "repugnant and abhorrent."
The Aguda, however, has avoided airing any public criticisms that its officials may have of the book's content. Instead it has focused its public response on challenging the Forward's reporting.
Zwiebel originally sent letters to the Forward and asked that they not be published, a request the newspaper honored. He subsequently distributed copies to leaders of other Orthodox organizations. In his first letter to the Forward, dated December 22, Zwiebel wrote that he does not consider it his "purpose to defend the book."
'DUPLICITY AND DECEPTION' RECOMMENDED
Instead, Zwiebel wrote, he wanted to "call [the editors'] attention to the shoddy quality" of the article, which he characterized as "grossly inaccurate and misleading, perhaps libelously so." Zwiebel repeatedly claimed in his letters that Grama's actual ideas are consistent with those found in earlier Jewish texts.
Goldberg described his correspondence with Zwiebel as a "difficult exchange" between friends. He said Zwiebel's distribution of the letters was "surprising" but understandable.
Zwiebel's primary objections to the Forward's coverage of the book centered on the paper's assertion that Grama had characterized Jews and gentiles as different species, and that Grama had recommended "duplicity and deception" when dealing with gentiles.
In his book, Grama used the phrase "shnei minim nifradim," which the Forward translated as "two separate species." In an interview with the Forward, Zwiebel suggested that "two different types" would be a more accurate translation.
In a reply to Zwiebel, Goldberg argued that "min" is the standard word used in modern Hebrew for the term species, and that Grama's prose reflected a thorough grounding in modern Hebrew usage.
Scholars interviewed by the Forward said the term is generally understood the same way in earlier texts. "The definition of the term 'minim' in both Jewish thought and Halacha means biological species," said Rabbi Alan Brill, a professor of Jewish intellectual history at Yeshiva University.
'HIDE TRUE BELIEFS AND FEELINGS FROM GENTILES'
As for the Forward's description of Grama's book as urging "deception" and "duplicity," Zwiebel noted that the words do not appear in the text itself. The article's author, Allan Nadler, director of Jewish studies at Drew University in New Jersey, replied that those words were intended in the article to sum up the contents of a chapter in which Grama urged Jews to hide their true beliefs and feelings from gentiles.
Zwiebel countered that the words had an emotional charge not present in the chapter in question, making them misleading.
After reading Grama's book, Rabbi Yosef Blau, a leading rabbinic counselor at Yeshiva University, sent the Forward a letter arguing that the newspaper had accurately translated the work (please see Page 10). But, he added, Grama "is not an advocate of acting against the gentile. On the contrary, his message is the need to separate from a hostile, intrinsically anti-Semitic world."
Still, Blau wrote, the "possibility exists" that Jewish extremists in Israel could use the text to "justify horrendous behavior." He suggested that American scholars such as Grama may be unaware of the possible impact of such writings in today's charged atmosphere.
Moreover, Blau added, it is possible for traditionalists to argue for Jewish isolation "without ascribing evil to gentiles and denying that they are created in God's image. One can acknowledge the intractable existence of anti-Semitism without seeing it emanating from the essential nature of the gentile.
"Unfortunately this book does not make such distinctions. Yet it is inaccurate to place it in the category of racist tracts that call for the superior race to rule the world. This work is a call for a superior people to withdraw from the world and live in isolation while submitting to its enemies and placing trust in God."
The following is but a tiny sampling of some of the more hateful passages to be found in the Jewish bible--both Torah and its companion Talmud--Also included are some representative remarks by those who fancy themselves as "Chosen," with a claim to rule over the Gentiles.
"And thou shalt consume all the people . . . " --Deuteronomy, Chapter 7:16 "Ye shall eat the riches of the goyim . . . " --Isaiah 61:6
"A Jew may rob a goy: that is, he may cheat him in a bill, if it be unlikely to be perceived by him." --Shulchan Aruch, Choshen Hamishpat 348
"[Property owned by Gentiles] is considered public property, like unclaimed land in the desert." --The Jewish Encyclopedia, Vol. X, p. 621, under the heading "Gentile"
"Jews are human beings, but the nations of the world are not human beings, but beasts . . ." --Saba Mecia 114, 6
"Thou shalt not do injury to thy neighbor, but it is not said, 'Thou shalt not do injury to a goy.' '" --Mishna Sanhedrin 57
"Do not have pity for them. Show no mercy unto them. Therefore, if you see one in difficulty of drowning, do not go to his help . . . it is right to kill him by your own hand by shoving him into a well or in some other way." --Maimonides, Hilkoth Akrum, X, 1
"A Jew is permitted to rape, cheat and perjure himself; but he must take care that he is not found out, so that Israel may not suffer." --Shulchan Aruch
"A heathen [Gentile] who studies the Torah deserves death, for it is written, Moses commanded us a law for an inheritance; it our inheritance, not theirs. . . . --Sanhedrin 59a
"Every goy who studies the Talmud, and every Jew who helps him in it, ought to die." --Sanhedrin, 59a, Aboda Zora 8-6, Shagiga 13
"If a Jew be called upon to explain any part of the rabbinic books, he ought to give only a false explanation. Who ever will violate this order shall be put to death." --Libbre David 37
"To communicate anything to a goy about our religious relations would be equal to the killing of all Jews, for if the goyim knew what we teach about them they would kill us openly." --Libbre David 37
"The body of a Jewish persons of a totally different quality from the body of members of all other nations of the world. Bodies of the Gentiles are in vain. An even greater difference is in regard to the soul . . .A non-Jewish soul comes from three satanic spheres, while the Jewish soul stems from holiness." --Lubavitcher Rabbi Mendel Schneerson
"Everything about us is different. Jews are ontologically exceptional." --Professional Holocaust survivor Elie Wiesel
24 - How Jewish Supremacism Is Destroying America
By Patrick Grimm
I have updated my listing of ways that the Jewish supremacists are wrecking America. This list provides a good introduction to those neophytes just immersing themselves in the world of the anti-Zionist and anti-Jewish supremacist movement, and shows them the countless ways Jewish extremism negatively affects our country. It's a quick and handy primer to enlighten and educate gentile people, preparing them for this noble struggle for survival they must choose to fight if they are truly desirous of having a future life upon this planet for their children and grandchildren.
All supremacism is unacceptable, however, supremacist Jewry is killing us; it is killing our soul, killing our spirit, killing our will, killing our pride and killing our nation. Its policies are killing our people. We must make this clear and present the ugly reality and the unpleasant truth in an easy-to-understand format. I believe this list is a good step in that direction.
1. They have destroyed our pride in our history, and a nation that loses its sense of history soon ceases to be a nation.
2. They have labeled our beloved Founding Fathers as "racists" and "white slavers", ignoring the great representative republic that these men constructed.
3. They have promoted multiculturalism, celebrating every culture-no matter how backward and barbaric-except for Western white European culture. As Jewish Marxist intellectual thug Susan Sontag stated in a poisonous rant "The white race is the cancer of humanity."
4. They have driven the Christian faith and heritage from the public square by utilizing their countless criminal cadres of ADL and ACLU Communist lawyers. Our children will soon grow up in a society wiped clean of any vestiges of the Bible, Christ or the cross. However, the menorah is still allowed in the White House for Hannukah celebrations. In fact, the Jewish religion is the only faith that can't be mocked openly in Hollywood entertainment.
5. They have torn our borders open, permitting, indeed cheering, the Third World dregs who will soon replace us as the majority. The Javitzes, the Lautenbergs and Cellers meticulously designed the legislation (Immigration and Nationality Act of 1965) that will genocide us. They have done all this while simultaneously-and with no sense of irony-supporting Israel's "Jews-only" immigration policy.
6. They have created, pushed and profited from pornography and perverse entertainment. The "Chosen" make up 90% of all American pornographers. The Hollywood they run has mainstreamed wife-swapping, common law marriages, pedophilia, scatology, licentious sex, drug and alcohol abuse and self-indulgence. Bestiality will be next on the list. In fact, they are already releasing a documentary portraying men who have sex with horses.
7. They have brought homosexuality out of the closet and into our faces. Sodomy is shown in their media and movies as normal, healthy, enjoyable and something to celebrate openly in as brazen a fashion as possible. They have founded, funded and fronted every homosexual advocacy group in America. To oppose the flaunting of buggery is now considered "old-fashioned" and "reactionary."
8. They have brainwashed our children. With their control of the institutes of "higher" learning, they have filled the minds of the young with Marxism, Deconstructionism, relativism, anti-white self- hatred and lies about "diversity" and non-judgmentalism. These sundry "isms" are the pernicious lies that have jettisoned the positive "isms" that once bloomed in our society: patriotism, altruism, individualism, nationalism, etc. Jewish academics like Noel Ignatiev now fearlessly call for the "death of whiteness" with nary a squeak of protest.
9. They have subverted our government. With Zionist control of media, both print and television, the two major political parties and the highest echelons of government, our foreign and domestic policy has been steered away from the interests of the European-American majority, rendering us incapable of self-preservation. The war in Iraq, the 9/11 attacks and a possible clash with Iran in the near future, are all results of the Zionist subjugation of the most powerful nation on earth, and the prioritizing of Israel's concerns over those of the United States. Our taxpayers now fork over nearly six billion dollars a year in money and weaponry to this rogue state, with little to show for it except the hatred of the entire planet and the punishment of higher oil prices from the Arab world.
10. They have force-fed the propaganda of radical feminism to American women and girls. Thanks to the steady diet of anti-male, anti-marriage and anti-family books, lectures and college courses from the likes of the Steinems, the Friedans and the Abzugs, many women now see the prospect of marriage and child-rearing as an impediment to their liberation. This has resulted in a sharply decreased gentile birthrate.
11. They have made abortion into a sacrament. Planned Parenthood, the National Abortion Rights Action League (NARAL) and every other leftist pro-abortion promoter and provider in America is run from top to bottom by "the Chosen". Unlimited and unregulated abortion on demand is lauded and touted in the controlled media as a positive social good for the United States. Thirty-four years after Roe v. Wade and with over 40 million abortions under their belts, these same groups still cheer and applaud for more. And with most abortion rights organizations top-heavy with Jews and a large percentage of abortion doctors also being Jewish, they have definitely made a killing out of killing.
12. They have sold us the packaged and deliberate lies of egalitarianism. All races are equal in intelligence, morality, accomplishments and potential, except of course, for one. The Jewish "race", as their own leaders refer to their people, is declared by Jewish anthropologists to be "superior." The lies of Montagu, Gould and Franz Boas have infected and displaced true science. According to these charlatans, Jews are uniquely intelligent, uniquely moral and a group that stands above all other groups in its supremacy. They truly believe they have a God-given right to rule over us. To criticize their pernicious power is the most egregious societal taboo. It will result in the loss of reputation and livelihood and remove any individual-no matter how acclaimed they once were-from the realm of "respectable" society. "Our race (speaking of the Jews) is the Master Race. We are divine gods on this planet. We are as different from the inferior races as they are from insects. In fact, compared to our race, other races are beasts and animals, cattle at best. Other races are considered as human excrement. Our destiny is to rule over the inferior races. Our earthly kingdom will be ruled by our leader with a rod of iron. The masses will lick our feet and serve us as our slaves." - Menachem Begin. (Israeli Prime Minister, 1977-1983)
13. They have propelled forward and profited from the social experiment called "racial integration", a failed experiment that is killing European-Americans. With extremist Jews at the helm of the black civil rights movement, "headed" by their pawn, Martin Luther King, Jr., a charlatan plagiarizer and philandering minister whose speeches and writings were the product of his handler, Jewish Communist attorney Stanley Levinson, the rights of white Americans were steamrolled. This was done with the help of a pliant and gushing Jewish media bound and determined to decrease the power of Euro- Americans forever. These Jewish extremists founded the NAACP and headed it until the 1970s, not out of any benevolence toward blacks, but only to use them as a "proletariat" to finally seal Jewish hegemony over the institutions of the United States in the long run, thus guaranteeing the weakening and dumbing-down of white education and increased violence, rape and murder of the white majority. The 60% of violent crime committed in this country by "African-Americans" is then covered up or buried by the mainstream media, now firmly in Zionist hands. This, in essence, is an attempt to hide from the livid eyes of whites the abject failure and devastation of "integration."
14. They have seized our language and steered it to the purposes of propaganda, with a little help from the Zionist-controlled idiot box. A "racist" is now someone who is appalled by black crime and the brutalizing of white women and children by violent rape and murder. It is anyone who doesn't want white people to be wiped off the face of the earth forever. An "anti-Semite" is no longer someone who hates Jews, but someone the Talmudic Jews hate. Any soul who dares to mention aloud any aspect or plank of their sick and ghoulish anti- European death creed now leveled against us is likened to a Nazi goose-stepper sans the arm band and brown shirt. This would include a sizeable cross-section of the population who are now awakened and becoming hyper-aware of the reality of Jewish supremacist perfidy.
15. They have controlled our currency with the counterfeiting scheme that is the Federal Reserve, its umbilical cord of sustenance interfaced with the Jewish Rothschild banking cartel run from the financial nerve center of world Jewry located in London, England. Since 1913, and intermittently on and off again throughout US history, tribalist Jews have sunk their vampire fangs into the currency of our nation. This nexus of dominance, more than any other, must be broken, smashed, its reins handed back to the people and the government of our country, rather than a private corporation operated top to bottom by power-hungry greed-head Jewish extremist money-men and international bankers who are in all truth, globalists and internationalists, intent on robbing the American people of their livelihood and their birthright, just as our Founding Fathers warned us they would. Until we get this banking power off of our backs, we will never be free of Talmudic tyranny. We will instead be bankrupt and subservient to their evil power agenda.
And on and on it goes. Everything on this list can be easily verified. Jews, mostly Zionist in nature, have spearheaded every movement or cause that now threatens our destruction and brings us to the edge of extinction and annihilation. And now the leviathan of Zionism and Talmudic Judaism extends its tentacles into every facet of our country and indeed into almost every other nation and culture residing upon the earth. With its expansion comes the debauching and sundering of all peoples, all heritages and all traditions. What will we do to stop it? Will we fear and quake before the strawmen buzzwords of "anti-Semite" and "hater", or will we stand and battle for the survival of civilization? It is up to all of us, Christians of both the right and the left, moderate Muslims who eschew violence, anti-Zionist Jews of conscience and indeed people of no particular religious persuasion. We must rage against the dying of the light, but that is not enough. All of us must kick at the evil and the darkness of Zionism and Jewish supremacism until it bleeds daylight.
25 - What Russia Fears in Asia
June 6, 2011By Richard Weitz
Despite its growing military and economic power, Russia doesn't see China as a threat. The potential chaos in Central Asia is another matter.

Developments in Central Asia and Pakistan are a major concern for Russia, but the growing military might of China isn’t really, at least according to Russian political and military officials I spoke with at a key conference in Moscow.
I probed numerous senior Russian officials at the off-the-record Defence and Security section meeting of the Valdai International Discussion Club on China, and received what were in some ways some surprising responses. When considering China’s growing economic power and military potential, even many US defence analysts who don’t consider China a threat still see managing its rise as a challenge. Indeed, over the past two years, the Barack Obama administration has sought to strengthen defence cooperation with other Asian countries worried about China’s rise, including Japan and Vietnam. And, like previous US administrations, they’ve also called on Chinese policy makers to make their defence policies and programmes more transparent.
Russian leaders speaking in public, in contrast, almost always repeat the official view that Russia and China are strategic partners, and that rather than fear China’s rise, Moscow welcomes it as a stabilizing factor in Asia. And although one senior military officer I met with in Moscow insisted that the Russian defence community constantly monitors Chinese defence developments, and sees clear signs of improved Chinese capabilities, the country still doesn’t see China as a current or emerging threat.
A senior Russian general confirmed that Russian defence leaders regularly discuss China with their US counterparts, but added that this was because Russian leaders are concerned that tensions between China and the United States could negatively affect the security of Asia in general, and Russia in particular.
Still, some Russian defence analysts at the conference were a little less sanguine over China’s rising military potential. For example, one told the sole Japanese participant, who had asked several questions about this issue, not to worry about the likely placement of the Mistral warship in the Russian Far East, since its main function would be to deter China, not fight Japan.
Indeed, the crash in Russian arms sales to China in the past few years has led many Western defence analysts to believe that Russia has essentially given up on the Chinese. In the past, Moscow could count on China buying various high-tech weapons systems from Russia’s military industrial complex. And, following the decision of Western governments to impose an arms embargo on China after the 1989 Tiananmen Square incident, a ban that remains largely in force today, China emerged as one of the most reliable clients of Russian defence items. For almost two decades, China accounted for between one-fourth and one-half of Russia’s foreign military sales, with Beijing buying more military products from Russia than from all other countries combined. During the 1990s, the value of these purchases ranged up to $1 billion per year, while during the mid-2000s, this figure sometimes rose above $2 billion per annum.
But this has since changed markedly. Since 2005, China has stopped purchasing Russian warships or warplanes, and has ceased signing new multi-billion dollar arms sale contracts. For the most part, Russian suppliers have been fulfilling past contracts (such as delivering S-300 air defence missiles), modernizing previous deliveries, or supplying specialized technology, such as high-powered aircraft engines for fighter planes, where Russian manufactures retain a clear advantage. The director of Russia’s state-controlled arms export company, Rosoboronexport, has forecast that the value of Russian arms sold to China could decline to as little as 10 percent of the value of all Russian military exports in the coming years.
But the defence firm chief we had dinner with insisted that Russian firms still saw opportunities for additional lucrative arms sales to China. Although he recognized that Russia helped contribute to the improved quality of the Chinese defence industry through its license transfer of Su-27 technologies and other means, he still saw opportunities for profitable collaboration with the Chinese due to the recognition by many (if not all) members of the Chinese aerospace industry that China still needed to rely on foreign partners because its domestic industry remained unable to do everything by itself.
The defence firm chief added he also didn’t consider the Chinese aircraft industry a competitive threat. When I asked about China’s newly unveiled ‘5th-generation fighter,’ he responded that the Chinese have along way to go before they will produce a ‘genuine’ 5th-generation plane equivalent to the Russian T-50. He added that although some of the subsystems of China’s J-20 might be considered 5th-generation, the Chinese still need much more time to combine all these subsystems effectively and produce a genuine state-of-the-art aircraft.
So what are the Russians worried about? Defence leaders seemed more focused on Central Asia, believing that instability in there will increase from the contagion effects of the social, economic and political disturbances in North Africa and from the withdrawal of NATO forces from Afghanistan in the coming years. Those I heard from are especially worried about renewed civil strife in Kyrgyzstan, the rise of Islamist militarism in Tajikistan, and the failure of the United States and NATO to stabilize the situation in Afghanistan before they withdraw their combat troops. Russian policymakers fear that complications resulting from these changes will increase the threat of terrorism and narcotics trafficking to Russia, as well as challenge Russian economic interests there, such as access and control over Central Asian oil and natural gas supplies.
To address the very real fears of chaos in Central Asia, Russia is relying heavily on the seven-memberCollective Security Treaty Organization (CSTO). One senior general responsible for Russian military planning and operations argued that member states, which include Armenia, Belarus, Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Russia, Tajikistan and Uzbekistan, had overcome many of the deficiencies that he confirmed the CSTO experienced last summer, when it was paralyzed during the Kyrgyzstan crisis. He said that the CSTO now has the military capacity, the operational plans and the legal foundation to undertake rapid interventions in Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, or even possibly Afghanistan under the rubric of anti-terrorism, peacekeeping, or other justifications.
He said he also felt the military leaders of the CSTO members had achieved a genuine meeting of minds about the organization. Kazakhstan, for example, had become an especially close partner of Russia in the building of a new and more effective CSTO, and the general said he is looking forward to the major exercise the CSTO plans to hold this summer and early autumn to confirm this progress. He and other Russians urged NATO to develop relations directly with the CSTO given the likelihood that it will play a greater role in Central Asia when Western troops leave Afghanistan.
Interestingly, though, it became increasingly clear from our meetings that Russia’s military and civilian leaders view the CSTO’s potential quite differently. In contrast to the optimism expressed by Russian military leaders regarding the organization’s future coherence and capabilities, Russia’s civilian defence policy makers and analysts consider the divergent security perspectives of member states a major problem. For example, CSTO members Belarus and even Armenia are preoccupied with fundamentally different security problems from the four Central Asian members. For this reason, they see the CSTO primarily as a ‘political’ organization confirming Moscow’s primacy in Central Asia, rather than as a major military force.
They likewise downplayed the military potential of the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO), which unlike the CSTO includes China but not Armenia and Belarus. They said they believed it would continue to focus on countering terrorism rather than developing the capabilities for joint military operations among its member states. In their view, the SCO also had a primarily political function, dampening a potential rivalry between China and Russia for control over Central Asia.
Looking further afield, Russian defence officials spoke highly of Moscow’s security relations with Turkey, arguing that the country is Russia’s main partner in ensuring the security of the Black Sea from pirates, terrorists, and other threats. They said, for example, that they regretted that other Black Sea countries have declined Russian and Turkish proposals to expand multilateral security cooperation in the Black Sea region, through which considerable amounts of Asian oil and gas traverse en route to European markets.
Yet despite Turkey’s membership in NATO, missile defence remains a tense issue between Russia and the West. The fundamental problem is that, unlike their NATO counterparts, Russian leaders don’t consider Iran a threat to European security. As one senior defence ministry official put it, ‘the Iranians are not crazy. They would never attack Europe.’ And the official considered a potential Iranian threat to Russia equally improbable. ‘From my perspective,’ he said, ‘the real threat to Russia comes from Pakistan,’ although he made clear this threat arose simply from the dangerous co-location of nuclear materials and Islamist extremists that equally alarms Western officials.
Given these divergent threat perceptions, and bearing in mind the message at one Russian briefing stating that the United States was simply using the Iranian threat as an excuse to construct a more extensive missile defence system against Russia, the senior defence ministry official said he saw little reason why his country should help construct a missile defence system that could potentially threaten Russia’s nuclear forces. They were, he said, prepared to look the other way if NATO wants to ‘waste all that money’ on building a missile defence, but only if Russia received written guarantees that the system’s capabilities would remain sufficiently limited so as not to threaten Russia’s nuclear forces.
And what of the other rising power, India? The defence firm chief expressed some irritation at the Indians for forgetting that it was Russia, rather than India, that is the leading partner in their defence relationship. He noted, for example, that despite the decision of the Indian defence ministry to eliminate the Russian (and US) planes from their latest round of competition to sell India its next multi-role fighter, he still considered India a good sales market — as long as the Indians appreciate that Russia has some ‘useful things’ to offer.

27 - CIA Mind Control Experiments
Declassified Documents Reveal Sex Abuse, More
"On 2 July 1951 approximately 1:00 p.m. the instruction began with [deleted] relating to the student some of his sexual experiences. [Deleted] stated that he had constantly used hypnotism as a means of inducing young girls to engage in sexual intercourse with him. [Deleted], a performer in [deleted] orchestra, was forced to engage in sexual intercourse with [deleted] while under the influence of hypnotism. [Deleted] stated that he first put her into a hypnotic trance and then suggested to her that he was her husband and that she desired sexual intercourse with him." -- Declassified CIA Document #140393, p. 1, dated July 9, 1951, original document available here
The astonishing excerpts below, taken verbatim from declassified CIA documents, reveal detailed, successful experiments and even blatant sex abuse in highly secret, government-sponsored mind control experiments. Through hypnosis, drugs, and electric shock, CIA clinicians fractured personalities and induced multiple personality disorder (MPD) – also called dissociative identity disorder (DID). These top secret experiments were successful in creating Manchurian Candidates or super spies programmed to carry out sexual favors, assassination, and other terrorist acts without any conscious knowledge of what they were doing. The army of Manchurian Candidates created has played a key, hidden role in world politics.
To verify this startling information, links are provided to scanned images of the revealing original CIA documents. Instructions are also available here to order for yourself any of these documents directly from the CIA using the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA). Though dating from the 1950s and 60s, these revealing documents were not released for decades for reasons of "national security." The U.S. government claims mind control experiments are no longer being carried out, yet how can we know? The existence of these programs was denied for decades, and certainly any recent documents would be classified secret under the rubric of "national security."
A trusted CIA informant I know assures me that these programs are ongoing. These disturbing methods are used by various countries in clandestine operations around the world. Many might prefer not to look at these ugly wounds to the soul of our nation and world. Yet if we avoid or ignore them, they are likely to grow and fester.Only by having the courage to look into the shadow parts of our world can we first understand and then begin to heal these wounds. See the What You Can Do section near the bottom of this essay for more valuable information and suggestions on how you can help bring this vital information to light.
With best wishes for a brighter future,

Title: Outline of Special H Cases Date: 7 January 1953 Link to view images of original: Page 1, Page 4
In a general request for volunteers [deleted names] volunteered for H [hypnosis] experimentation and were originally tested on 21 May 1951. Both girls, at this time, were nineteen years of age. These subjects have clearly demonstrated that they can pass from a fully awake state to a deep H controlled state via the telephone, via some very subtle signal that cannot be detected by other persons in the room, and without the other individuals being able to note the change.
It has been shown clearly that physically individuals can be induced into H by telephone, by receiving written matter, or by the use of code, signal, or words. Control of those hypnotized can be passed from one individual to another without great difficulty. It has also been shown by experimentation with these girls that they can act as unwilling couriers for information purposes, and that they can be conditioned to a point where they believe a change in identity on their part even on the polygraph.
Note: This document shows that CIA experimenters were successful in hypnotizing young women (19 years old in this case) to do things they would not do normally without any memory afterward, sometimes even unwillingly. Though they volunteered, these women were thus programmed to be Manchurian Candidates or super spies with no knowledge of what these men were doing to them.

Learning models will be instituted in which the subject will be rewarded or punished for his overall performance and reinforced in various ways – by being told whether he was right, by being told what the target was, with electric shock etc. ... In other cases drugs and psychological tricks will be used to modify his attitudes.The experimenters will be particularly interested in disassociative states, from the abaissement de niveau mental to multiple personality in so-called mediums, and an attempt will be made to induce a number of states of this kind, using hypnosis.
Note: This document provides proof that the CIA was was using drugs and electric shock in attempting to induce MPD (multiple personality disorder). Though this document uses the masculine "he" to describe the subject, other documents show that most of the subjects used were young women who volunteered. The subjects were not informed about the deeper aspects and implications for which they were being trained.

Title: Hypnotic Experimentation and Research Date: 10 February 1954 Link to view image of original: Page 1, Page 2
A posthypnotic of the night before (pointed finger, you will sleep) was enacted. Misses [deleted] and [deleted] immediately progressed to a deep hypnotic state with no further suggestion. Miss [deleted] was then instructed (having previously expressed a fear of firearms in any fashion) that she would use every method at her disposal to awaken miss [deleted] (now in a deep hypnotic sleep), and failing this, she would pick up a pistol nearby and fire it at Miss [deleted]. She was instructed that her rage would be so great that she would not hesitate to “kill” [deleted] for failing to awaken.
Miss [deleted] carried out these suggestions to the letter including firing the (unloaded pneumatic pistol) gun at [deleted] and then proceeding to fall into a deep sleep. After proper suggestions were made, both were awakened and expressed complete amnesia for the entire sequence. Miss [deleted] was again handed the gun, which she refused (in an awakened state) to pick up or accept form the operator. She expressed absolute denial that the foregoing sequence had happened.
Miss [deleted] felt reluctant about participating further since she expressed her doubt as to any useful purpose in further attendance. The Operator thereupon proceeded in full view of all other subjects to explain to Miss [deleted] that he planned to induce a deep state of hypnosis now. The reaction was as had been expected. Miss [deleted] excused herself to make a telephone call (defense mechanism?). Upon her return a very positive approach was adopted by the operator whereupon a deeper, much deeper state of hypnosis was obtained.
Immediately a posthypnotic was induced that when the operator accidently dropped a steel ball in his hand to the floor ... Miss [deleted] would again go into hypnosis. Miss [deleted] then advised that she must conclude her work for the evening. She arose to adjust her hair before the mirror. The ball was dropped and she promptly slumped back into the chair and back into hypnosis. It is the opinion of the operator the Miss [deleted] if properly trained (positive approach) will continue to improve.
Note: Here we have proof that these women could be converted into unsuspecting and even unwilling assassins. They could be programmed to assassinate anyone and would do so without any conscious knowledge afterward. Note also the questionable status of "volunteer" implied. Though these women originally volunteered, unwillingness to continue could be manipulated by the men running the program.

Title: SI and H Experimentation Date: 25 September 1951 Link to view images of original: Page 1, Page 2 Note: SI stands for sleep induction and H for hypnosis
Prior to actually beginning the more complex experiments, several simple post H were worked with both of the girls participating. The first major experiment of the evening was set up as follows without previous explanation to either [deleted] or [deleted]. Both subjects were placed in a very deep trance state and while in this state, the following instructions were given:
(A) [Deleted] was instructed that when she awakened, she was to procede to [deleted] room. She was told that while there, she would receive a telephone call from an individual whom she would know only as "Joe". This individual would engage her in a normal telephone conversation. During this conversation, this individual would give her a code word and upon mentioning the code word, [deleted] would go into a deep SI [sleep induction] trance state, but would be "normal" in appearance with her eyes open.
[Deleted] was then told that upon the conclusion of the telephone conversation, she would procede to the ladies room where she would meet a girl who was unknown to her. She was told that she would strike up a conversation with this girl and during the conversation she would mention the code word "New York" to this other girl, who, in turn, would give her a device and further instructions which were to be carried out by [deleted]. She was told that after she carried out the instructions, she was to return to the Operations Room, sit in the sofa and go immediately into a deep sleep.
(B) [Deleted] was instructed that upon awakening, she would proceed to [deleted] room where she would wait at the desk for a telephone call. Upon receiving the call, a person known as “Jim” would engage her in normal conversation. During the course of the conversation, this individual would mention a code word to [deleted]. When she heard this code word, she would pass into a SI trance state, but would not close her eyes and remain perfectly normal and continue the telephone conversation. She was told that upon conclusion of the telephone conversation, she would then carry out the following instructions:
[Deleted] being in a complete SI state at this time, was then told to open her eyes and was shown an electric timing device. She was informed that this timing device was an incendiary bomb and was then instructed how to attach and set the device. After [deleted] had indicated that she had learned how to set and attach the device, she was told to return to a sleep state and further instructed that upon concluding the aforementioned conversation, she would take the timing device which was in a briefcase and proceed to the ladies room.
In the ladies room, she would be met by a girl whom she had never seen who would identify herself by the code word “New York.” [Deleted] was then to show this individual how to attach and set the timing device and further instructions would be given the individual by [deleted] that the timing device was to be carried in the briefcase to [deleted] room, placed in the nearest empty electric-light plug and concealed in the bottom, left-hand drawer of [deleted] desk, with the device set for 82 seconds and turned on.
[Deleted] was further instructed to tell this other girl that as soon as the device had been set and turned on, she was to take the briefcase, leave [deleted] room, go to the operations room and go to the sofa and enter a deep sleep state. [Deleted] was further instructed that after completion of instructing the other girl and the transferring to the other girl of the incendiary bomb, she was to return at once to the operations room, sit on the sofa, and go into a deep sleep state.
For a matter of record, immediately after the operation was begun it was noted that a member of the charforce was cleaning the floor in the ladies room and subsequently, both [deleted] and [deleted] had to be placed ... once again in a trance state and instructions changed from the ladies room to Room 3. It should be noted that even with the change of locale in the transfer point, the experiment was carried off perfectly without any difficulty or hesitation on the part of either of the girls. Each girl acted out their part perfectly, the device was planted and set as directed and both girls returned to the operations room, sat on the sofa and entered a deep sleep state. Throughout, their movements were easy and natural.
Note: You will note the frequent use of "girls" (young women) in these programs. Do you think the men in charge, having complete hypnotic control of these women, might have at times taken advantage of them sexually? Yet this would never enter the official documentation, with the one major exception below.

On 2 July 1951 approximately 1:00 p.m. the instruction began with [deleted] relating to the student some of his sexual experiences. [Deleted] stated that he had constantly used hypnotism as a means of inducing young girls to engage in sexual intercourse with him. [Deleted], a performer in [deleted] orchestra, was forced to engage in sexual intercourse with [deleted] while under the influence of hypnotism. [Deleted] stated that he first put her into a hypnotic trance and then suggested to her that he was her husband and that she desired sexual intercourse with him.
[Deleted] further stated that many times going home on [deleted] he would use hypnotic suggestion to have a girl turn around and talk to him and suggest sexual intercourse to him and that as a result of these suggestions induced by him he spent approximately five nights a week away from home engaging in sexual intercourse.
Note: This document shows that an instructor being used by the CIA took advantage of his skill in hypnosis to sexually abuse young women without their having any knowledge of being abused. How many CIA hypnotists did likewise? Would you be tempted if you were a man involved in these programs to take advantage of a beautiful, young woman knowing she would not remember afterward? Do you think many men would? Note that for some reason this document is not available in the CIA's three CD set and must be ordered individually at this link. See the What You Can Do section at the end of this page for suggestions on how we can stop this abuse.

Title: Continuation of Studies of Hypnosis and Suggestibility Date: Unknown Link to view image of original: Click here
Preliminary clinical research during 1955-56 has yielded promising leads in terms of knowledge of how hypnotizability can be influenced by pharmacological means. Experiments involving altered personality function as a result of environmental manipulation (chiefly sensory isolation) have yielded promising leads in terms of suggestibility and the production of trance-like states. There is reason to believe that environmental manipulations can affect tendencies for dissociative phenomenon to occur.
Note: "Dissociative phenomenon" refers to the ability of a person's consciousness to leave and a new consciousness enter, thereby facilitation the creation of "alter" or multiple personalities. Besides hypnosis, drugs and electric shocks were developed as means to facilitate the creation of Manchurian Candidates.

Title: Report of Inspection of MKULTRA Date: 26 July 1963 Link to view images of original: Page 1, Page 2, Page 4, Page 6, Page 7, Page 8, Page 9.
It was deemed advisable to prepare the report of the MKULTRA program in one copy only, in view of its unusual sensitivity. The MKULTRA activity is concerned with the research and development of chemical, biological, and radiological materials capable of employment in clandestine operation to control human behavior. MKULTRA was authorized by then Director of Central Intelligence [DCI], Mr. Allen W. Dulles, in 1953.
The concepts involved in manipulating human behavior are found by many people both within and outside the Agency to be distasteful and unethical. Nevertheless, there have been major accomplishments both in research and operational employment. Some MKULTRA activities raise questions of legality implicit in the original charter.A final phase of testing of MKULTRA products places the rights and interests of U.S. citizens in jeopardy. Public disclosure of some aspects of MKULTRA activity could induce serious adverse reaction in U.S. public opinion. The DCI's memorandum ... exempted MKULTRA from audit.
Over the ten-year life of the program many additional avenues to the control of human behavior have been designated by the TSD management [Technical Services Division - under which MKULTRA operated] as appropriate to investigation under the MKULTRA charter, including radiation, electro-shock, various fields of psychology, psychiatry, sociology, and anthropology, graphology, harassment substances, and paramilitary devices and materials.
TSD initiated a program for covert testing of materials on unwitting U.S. citizens in 1955. TSD has pursued a philosophy of minimum documentation in keeping with the high sensitivity of some of the projects. The lack of consistent records precluded use of routine inspection procedures and raised a variety of questions concerning management and fiscal controls.
There are just two individuals in TSD who have full substantive knowledge of the program and most of that knowledge is unrecorded. In protecting both the sensitive nature of the American intelligence capability to manipulate human behavior, they apply "need to know" doctrine to their professional associates and to their clerical assistants to a maximum degree.
Note: Why did only two people have full substantive knowledge of the program? Could it be that sex abuse and political manipulations behind the scenes were so severe that no one was to be trusted? Do you think we could trust those two individuals? CIA Director Richard Helms, upon hearing there would be a Congressional investigation, ordered the destruction of all documents from these unethical and at times illegal mind control programs in 1973. He did not realize, however, that incriminating evidence remained in the financial files of the agency, which are what you read here. We can only imagine what secrets the destroyed documents held.

Title: Two Extremely Sensitive Research Programs Date: 3 April 1953 Link to view images of original: Page 3, Page 4
Approximately 6% of the projects are of such an ultra-sensitive nature that they cannot and should not be handled by means of contracts which would associate CIA or the Government with the work in question.
We intend to investigate the development of a chemical material which causes a reversible non-toxic aberrant mental state, the specific nature of which can be reasonably well predicted for each individual. This material could potentially aid in discrediting individuals, eliciting information, implanting suggestion and other forms of mental control.
In a great many instances the work in field (a) must be conducted by individuals who are not and should not be aware of our interest. In all cases dealing with field (b), it is mandatory that any connections with the Agency should be known only to an absolute minimum number of people who have been specifically cleared for this purpose.
Experience has shown that qualified, competent individuals in the field of pharmacological, physiological, psychiatric and other biological sciences are most reluctant to enter into signed agreements of any sort which connect them with this activity since such a connection would jeopardize their professional reputations. Even internally in CIA, as few individuals as possible should be aware of our interest in these fields and of the identity of those who are working for us. At present, this results in ridiculous contracts, with cut-outs, which do not spell out the scope or intent of the work.

Title: Interview with [Deleted]Date: 25 February 1952 Link to view full text of both pages: Click here
Q: What are your experiences in general with hypnotism?A: I have been a professional hypnotist for at least 15 years. At present, I am employed on a very confidential basis two days a week. Q: Can you obtain information from an individual, willing or unwilling, by hypnotism?A: Definitely, yes. Many of the medical cases I work on are involved in obtaining personal, intimate information, and through hypnotism, I have been quite successful in obtaining this. If an individual refuses to co-operate with hypnosis, the doctors with whom I work use drugs, always sodium amytal. Q: How far do you think individuals could be controlled by hypnosis?A: This is a very difficult subject. Post-hypnotics will last twenty years and will be very strong if re-enforced from time to time. Q: Have you ever had any experience with drugs?A: Yes, many times. I have worked with doctors using sodium amytal and pentothal and have obtained hypnotic control after the drugs were used. In fact, many times drugs were used for the purpose of obtaining hypnotic control. Q: Do you have any ideas that hypnotism could be used as a weapon? A: Yes, I have thought about this often. It could certainly be used in obtaining information from recalcitrant people particularly with drugs. It could be used as a recruiting source for special types of work. A good hypnotist running hypnotic shows for entertainment would pick up a great many subjects, some of whom might be exceptionally good subjects for us. These subjects could easily be tabbed and put to use.Q: Have you ever been able to produce hypnosis without an individual's knowledge?A: Yes, through the relaxing technique and on rare occasions [I've] been able to produce hypnotism against a person's will. However, you cannot count on this and to attempt to attach an individual who did not want to be hypnotized alone would be almost an impossible task. In that type of case, I would use sodium amytal and/or sodium pentothal.Q: How effective are post-hypnotics; over what distances and time can they be effective?A: Properly used post-hypnotics will last twenty years. They can be made more effective by re-enforcement from time to time. Post-hypnotics are not affected at all by time or travel or distance away from the person who placed the post-hypnotic. As a rule, post-hypnotics should be 100% effective in good subjects. Q: Can individuals be made to do things under hypnosis that they would not otherwise? A: Individuals could be taught to do anything including murder, suicide, etc. I do believe that you could carry out acts that would be against an individual's moral feelings if they were rightly, psychologically conditioned.
Note: Individuals can be hypnotized without their knowledge. They can be programmed to commit murder, suicide, and much more. Think about the implications. How many "suicides" of important people we've heard in the news were not really suicides? How many murders were committed by people who didn't even realize they were assassins? How much has this technology been used to manipulate world politics? Think about the Kennedys, Martin Luther King, Jr., and possibly even those involved with 9/11 and other major terrorist attacks.

Set out below are specific problems which can only be resolved by experiment, testing and research.
Can we obtain control of the future activities (physical and mental) of any given individual, willing or unwilling by application of SI [sleep induction] and H [hypnosis] techniques?
Can we create by post-H control an action contrary to an individual’s basic moral principles?
Can we in a matter of an hour, two hours, one day, etc., induce an H condition in an unwilling subject to such an extent that he will perform an act for our benefit?
Could we seize a subject and in the space of an hour or two by post-H control have him crash an airplane, wreck a train, etc.?
Can we by H and SI techniques force a subject (unwilling or otherwise) to travel long distances, commit specified acts and return to us or bring documents or materials?
Can we guarantee total amnesia under any and all conditions?
Can we “alter” a person’s personality?
Can we devise a system for making unwilling subjects into willing agents and then transfer that control to untrained agency agents in the field by use of codes or identifying signs?
Is it possible to find a gas that can be used to gain SI control from a gas pencil, odorless, colorless: one shot, etc.?
What are full details on "sleep-inducing machine"?
How can sodium A or P or any other sleep inducing agent be best concealed in a normal or commonplace item, such as candy, cigarettes, liquer, wines, coffee, tea, beer, gum water, aspirin tablets, common medicines, coke, tooth paste?
Can we, using SI and H extract complicated formula from scientists, engineers, etc., if unwilling?
Note: Reading all of the declassified CIA documents listed in this essay suggests that the answer to most, if not all of the questions above appears to be yes. Note that sleep inducing agents were being placed in candy, aspirin, Coke, and more. Think about the implications if even just a few of the men in these programs decided to use such things outside of the office to manipulate others for their personal benefit. It's time that this information be made public so that we can all be aware of what's going on and work to stop the abuses.

Title: Hypnosis Comes of Age Date: April 1971 Link to view full text of article: Click here
Psychologist G. H. Estabrooks reminisces about his long career as a hypnotist. Dr. Estabrooks discusses how he "programmed" American spies with hypnosis and how he helped businessmen and students with his skills. Dr. Estabrooks is a Rhodes Scholar. He took his Doctorate at Harvard ('26), and has authored many articles and books on clinical hypnosis and human behavior.
One of the most fascinating but dangerous applications of hypnosis is its use in military intelligence. This is a field with which I am familiar through formulating guidelines for the techniques used by the United States in two world wars. I was involved in preparing many subjects for this work during World War II.
One successful case involved an Army Service Corps Captain whom we'll call George Smith. Captain Smith had undergone months of training. He was an excellent subject but did not realize it. I had removed from him, by post-hypnotic suggestion, all recollection of ever having been hypnotized. Outside of myself, Colonel Brown was the only person who could hypnotize Captain Smith. This is "locking." I performed it by saying to the hypnotized Captain: "Until further orders from me, only Colonel Brown and I can hypnotize you. We will use a signal phrase 'the moon is clear.' " The system is virtually foolproof.
By the 1920's, not only had they learned to apply post-hypnotic suggestion, [they] also had learned how to split certain complex individuals into multiple personalities like Jeckyl-Hydes.
During World War II, I worked this technique with a vulnerable Marine lieutenant I'll call Jones. Under the watchful eye of Marine Intelligence, I spilt his personality into Jones A and Jones B. Jones A, once a "normal" working Marine, became entirely different. He talked communist doctrine and meant it. He was welcomed enthusiastically by communist cells, was deliberately given a dishonorable discharge by the Corps (which was in on the plot) and became a card-carrying party member.
The joker was Jones B, the second personality, formerly apparent in the conscious Marine. Under hypnosis, this Jones had been carefully coached by suggestion. Jones B was the deeper personality, knew all the thoughts of Jones A, was a loyal American, and was "imprinted" to say nothing during conscious phases. All I had to do was hypnotize the whole man, get in touch with Jones B, the loyal American, and I had a pipeline straight into the Communist camp.
Note: Note that in the 1920s, U.S. military intelligence had already developed the capability to cause split personalities. The created super spy or Manchurian Candidate has been a reality for nearly a century, yet very few people know anything about it. These unknowing spies could plant bombs, provide sexual favors, and even assassinate top political leaders. Consider that many countries and key powerful, elite groups have had and used this technology for many decades. Watch the movie Manchurian Candidate to see how real it is.
After reading all of these highly revealing documents, you may now understand why there is a major part of our history which has never been written. You may better understand how the Kennedy and King assassinations, 9/11, and other terrorist acts were likely manipulated. Beautiful young women could be programmed to seduce, influence, and if necessary even poison top political leaders. And remember that certain powerful, elite groups who have access to large volumes of money also have access to these technologies and often are secretly using them to battle each other. There is an entire hidden history of our world of which few are aware.

28 - Elias Davidsson - I Am A Radical Antisemite And Am Proud Of It
Friday, June 10, 2011 at 1:30PM
The meaning of the term "antisemite" has significantly changed in recent years. There was a time when this term referred to those who despised Jews. Later, the term referred to those who promoted myths about a global Jewish conspiracy to rule the world. Today the term "antisemite" is used by the ruling elite to lambast human rights activists who advocate equal rights between Jews, Christians and Muslims, the right of return of Palestinian refugees to their homeland and the vision of a common, democratic state for both Palestinians and Israelis. The word "antisemite", which initially conveyed a negative and even sinister meaning, refers now to positive and highly commendable attitudes that can be carried with honour. One may lament this change of meaning, but one should remember that a word does not carry any particular meaning. It is merely a conventional symbol that refers to external contents. By convention, society could agree to name animosity towards Jews "xakaculca", democracy "zbzb" and elefants "democracy".
Advocacy for a just and democratic solution to the conflict in Israel/Palestine is grounded on international human rights norms, including the right to equality and the right of everyone to return to her country. These norms are enshrined in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (articles 1, 2, 7, 13(2)) and the Preamble of the U.N. Charter. This advocacy also seeks its legitimacy from the constitutional principles that underpin the Western democratic order. According to current terminology, as imposed by those who mould public opinion, the word "antisemitism" now refers to human rights advocacy and to the struggle for democracy. There is no need to combat the new convention. One merely has to adjust to it.Inasmuch as the term "antisemite" now refers to human rights advocates and radical democrats, I declare myself a radical antisemite.Elias DavidssonBonn, GermanyJune 10, 2011
29 - What is “Remember Building 7 ?”
Remember Building 7 is a non-partisan campaign led by 9/11 family members to raise awareness of the destruction of World Trade Center Building 7 through television and other forms of advertising, and to shift public opinion such that the New York City Council and Manhattan District Attorney will be compelled to open an investigation into Building 7′s destruction.
The campaign started in the fall of 2010, raising $100,000 in small donations to purchase commercial time on cable television throughout the New York Metropolitan Area. The first TV ad, which featured four 9/11 family members, ran 580 times from Novmber 2 through December 5, reaching an estimated one million unique viewers an average of 8 times each.
A new ad was released online in March 2011, this time featuring four 9/11 family members, two engineers and two architects. The campaign again succeeded in raising $100,000 to purchase more television commercial time for June 2011.
The Remember Building 7 campaign is cosponsored by several groups, led by the NYC Coalition for Accountability Now (NYC CAN), which is a non-partisan organization of 9/11 family members, first responders and survivors, and by Architects & Engineers for 9/11 Truth, an organization of more than 1,500 architectural and engineering professionals who have put their professional reputations on the line to publicly challenge the official explanation of Building 7’s destruction.
The campaign changed its name from BuildingWhat? to Remember Building 7 with the release of the second ad in March 2011.
What is Building 7?
Building 7 was a 47-story skyscraper and was part of the World Trade Center complex. Built in 1984, it would have been the tallest high-rise in 33 states in the United States. It collapsed at 5:20 pm on September 11, 2001. It was not hit by an airplane and suffered minimal damage compared to other buildings much closer to the Twin Towers.
7 FACTS ABOUT BUILDING 7
1) If fire caused Building 7 to collapse, it would be the first ever fire-induced collapse of a steel-frame high-rise.
2) Building 7’s collapse was not mentioned in the 9/11 Commission Report.
3) According to a Zogby poll in 2006, 43% of Americans did not know about Building 7.
4) It took the federal government seven years to conduct an investigation and issue a report for Building 7.
5) 1,500+ architects and engineers have signed a petition calling for a new investigation into the destruction of Building 7, specifying that it should include a full inquiry into the possible use of explosives.
6) Numerous witnesses say the possibility of demolishing Building 7 was widely discussed by emergency personnel at the scene and advocated by the building’s owner.
7) Building 7 housed several intelligence and law enforcement agencies, and the NYC Office of Emergency Management’s Emergency Operations Center, more commonly known as “Giuliani’s Bunker”.

Larry Silverstein’s Statement on PBS
In the 2002 PBS documentary America Rebuilds, the World Trade Center (WTC) leaseholder and owner of WTC Building 7, Larry Silverstein, appears to have made the admission that he himself suggested intentionally demolishing Building 7 on 9/11, after which point others went ahead with the decision to demolish the building. Specifically, during the PBS program, while discussing events leading up to the collapse of Building 7, Silverstein said:
“I remember getting a call from the, er, fire department commander, telling me that they were not sure they were gonna be able to contain the fire, and I said, ‘We’ve had such terrible loss of life, maybe the smartest thing to do is pull it.’ And they made that decision to pull and we watched the building collapse.”
Because “pull” is a term used in the building demolition industry, [i] Silverstein’s “pull it” statement generated much controversy as it implied foreknowledge on the part of Silverstein and others that Building 7 was going to be brought down intentionally, and that the collapse did in fact result from a controlled demolition. This contradicted the prevailing official explanation that fire caused the collapse of Building 7.
Subsequently, Silverstein Properties issued a statement claiming that when Silverstein advised the fire commander that “the smartest thing to do is pull it,” what he meant was that it would be wise to pull a contingent of firefighters out of the building. [ii]
Silverstein Properties’ explanation is unavailing for at least two reasons. A natural reading of this phrase indicates that when he said pull “it,” Silverstein was talking about pulling Building 7 itself, not the firefighters who were supposedly still inside the building. Second, there were no firefighters inside building when Silverstein advised the fire department commander to “pull it.” The absence of firefighters in Building 7 is verified by the fact that Silverstein has admitted that he made his “pull it” statements “at around 3:30 or 4:00PM,” [iii] while the official National Institute of Science and Technology (NIST) report indicates that Building 7 had already been fully evacuated between 12:30PM and 2:00PM. [iv] Thus, “at around 3:30 or 4:00PM,” when Silverstein and the fire department commander were supposedly discussing evacuation of the firefighters, everyone, including firefighters, had already been evacuated from Building 7.
Additional evidence of Silverstein’s intent to demolish Building 7 emerged in a 2010 Fox News article written by journalist Jeffrey Scott Shapiro. [v] In that article, Shapiro reports that on September 11, 2001, Silverstein had a discussion with his insurance carrier about demolishing Building 7. Specifically, Shapiro states:
“Shortly before the building [Building 7] collapsed, several NYPD officers and Con-Edison workers told me that Larry Silverstein…was on the phone with his insurance carrier to see if they would authorize the controlled demolition of the building – since its foundation was already unstable and expected to fall.
A controlled demolition would have minimized the damage caused by the building’s imminent collapse and potentially save lives. Many law enforcement personnel, firefighters and other journalists were aware of this possible option.”
Shapiro’s statement should be given extra weight because it goes against his own interest. The goal of his article (entitled “Shame On Jesse Ventura!”) was to discredit those, including Governor Ventura, who are skeptical of the official account of 9/11. Shapiro’s report that Silverstein had been seeking authorization to demolish Building 7 prior to its destruction runs counter to the author’s goal, because the report indicates that Silverstein wanted to have the building brought down in a controlled demolition—just as those who challenge the official account of 9/11 argue is what happened to Building 7. Therefore, Shapiro’s article, if accurate, strongly supports the view that Building 7 was brought down by controlled demolition.
As part of a new investigation, Mr. Silverstein should be questioned under oath about the conversation he had with the fire department commander, who should also be called to testify.
[i] That “pull” is a demolition term is verified in that same 2002 PBS documentary, America Rebuilds, where a Ground Zero worker clearly says, “We’re getting ready to pull Building 6” just prior to it’s demolition. The statement is made during a filming of the WTC cleanup operation. Seehttp://video.google.pl/videoplay?docid=6227966981786417824#

The National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) omitted from its report on Building 7 information relating to foreknowledge by several groups of people that Building 7 was going to collapse.
What is meant by foreknowledge is a quality of detail and a strength of conviction indicating, in light of the building’s collapse at approximately 5:21 p.m., that they knew in advance that it was coming down.
Such knowledge is highly significant in light of the facts that (a) no steel framed skyscraper in history (indeed, NIST says, “no tall building” in history) had ever before collapsed from fire alone; and (b) the collapse, according to NIST, was the result of a series of accidental and unpredictable factors, which did not come together in such a way as to determine the fate of the building until minutes, or possibly even seconds, before the collapse took place.
In any situation where someone demonstrates foreknowledge of an extremely unusual event, the possibility must be considered that the knowledge derived from those who had control over the event. In other words, foreknowledge of WTC 7’s collapse strongly suggests that the building was subjected to controlled demolition and that the knowledge of its demise derived ultimately from those who intended to bring it down.
NIST has tried to evade the issue of foreknowledge of WTC’s collapse by implying:
(a) that the FDNY, on the scene, saw the damage to the building caused by the collapse of WTC 1 and rationally concluded that WTC 7 might collapse.
(b) that an engineer, early in the day, saw the damage to the building and concluded it might collapse, passing on this assessment to others (Lead Investigator Shyam Sunder, in a discussion with Graeme MacQueen on CKNX Radio, Wingham, Ontario, Aug. 25, 2008)
It is true that damage to WTC 7 was directly witnessed by some firefighters and led a few of them (about seven) to worry that the building might collapse, but the great majority (approximately 50) who were worried about collapse did not base this worry on what they perceived but on what they were told. (See Graeme MacQueen, “Waiting for Seven: WTC 7 Collapse Warnings in the FDNY Oral Histories”, Journal of 9/11 Studies, June 11, 2008) Moreover, while it is apparently also true that an engineer communicated his opinion, early in the day, that the building might collapse, neither this communication nor communications from the FDNY is sufficient to explain the abundant evidence of foreknowledge.
Below are seven reasons why the above NIST explanations of foreknowledge are inadequate. One example is given to illustrate each of the seven reasons. More details can be found in the paper by Graeme MacQueen titled “Waiting for Seven: WTC 7 Collapse Warnings in the FDNY Oral Histories” published at the Journal of 9/11 Studies (http://www.journalof911studies.com/volume/200701/MacQueenWaitingforSeven…).
To worry that a damaged building might collapse in some fashion is one thing; but to be certain that it will collapse is another. Detailed study of the accounts of the FDNY shows that over half of those who received warnings of WTC 7’s collapse (where degree of certainty can be determined from the reports) were certain or were told with certainty that it was coming down. (The figures are 31 out of 58. See “Waiting for Seven”.)
2. EARLY ANNOUNCEMENT
If someone was observing the fires in WTC 7 and was able to determine, in the last few moments of the building’s existence, that a peculiar set of circumstances was beginning to threaten the building, that would be one thing; but to receive warnings of the building’s collapse well before this set of circumstances was in place raises far more suspicions. Yet a detailed study of the FDNY reports show that of the 33 cases where the time of warning can be determined, in ten cases warnings were received two or more hours in advance and in six cases warnings were apparently received four or more hours in advance. (See “Waiting for Seven.”) In other words, long, long before the unique set of circumstances had come together to cause the building’s collapse, the collapse was being spoken of widely.
If the collapse warnings derived from vague worries and concerns they would not have been precise. No building had come down from these causes before, and, in fact, complete collapsesuch as happened to WTC 1, WTC 2, and WTC 7 was very rare, apart from cases of controlled demolition. That is why FDNY member James McGlynn could say on 9/11, speaking of one of the Towers, “Any time I’ve heard of a collapse, it was never an entire building like this turned out to be.” (See “Waiting for Seven.”) Yet, despite the rareness of complete collapse, many people apparently knew in advance that WTC 7 would be undergoing such a collapse. Consider the following from the FDNY oral histories:
Q. “Were you there when building 7 came down in the afternoon?”A. “Yes.”Q. “You were still there?”A. “Yes, so basically they measured out how far the building was going to come, so we knew exactly where we could stand.”Q. “So they just put you in a safe area, safe enough for when that building came down?”
A. “5 blocks. 5 blocks away. We still could see. Exactly right on point, the cloud stopped right there.” (See “Waiting for Seven.”)
4. NEW INFORMATION
If the collapse warnings derived from worries and concerns expressed early in the day by engineers and firefighters, why would the collapse of WTC 7 have been reported by CNN (one hour and 10 minutes in advance) and BBC (23 minutes in advance) as breaking news based on just received information? CNN anchor Aaron Brown said “We are getting information now.” CNN anchor Judy Woodruff: “We’re hearing for the first time” (See Appendix.) BBC anchor: “We’ve got some news just coming in”.
5. PREMATURE ANNOUNCEMENT
CNN and the BBC did not merely report that the building was damaged or that it might collapse; they prematurely announced its actual collapse.
CNN’s Aaron Brown, one hour and ten minutes in advance of the collapse: “We are getting information now that one of the other buildings, Building 7, in the World Trade Center complex, is on fire and has either collapsed or is collapsing…”BBC anchor, 23 minutes before the collapse: “the Salomon Brothers Building in New York, right in the heart of Manhattan, has also collapsed.”
No satisfactory explanation has been forthcoming about these premature announcements, which were obviously based on data fed to these announcers.
The BBC continued to announce that WTC 7 had collapsed, even when the building could be seen standing directly behind reporter Jane Standley, for about 17 minutes until the story was pulled abruptly.
When CNN personnel realized they had made an error in their early announcement, they could simply have corrected it. They could, at the very least, have withdrawn their attention from WTC 7 and stopped covering it since it was obviously still standing. Instead, CNN continued to keep WTC 7 in the forefront of its coverage over the hour and ten minutes preceding its collapse, repeatedly warning that it was going to come down and keeping the image of the building in front of the viewer until it had actually collapsed. (See Appendix.)
According to NIST’s study, WTC 7’s fires had been reduced from ten floors, soon after the collapse of WTC 1, to essentially two floors as the collapse time approached. This was a building in which the fires were actually dying down. Why, then, did CNN show awareness of the building’s approaching doom, and why did it revise its captions accordingly, from “may collapse” to “poised to collapse” (approximately 15 minutes before actual collapse) and then to “on verge of collapse” (approximately 1.5 minutes before actual collapse). (Appendix)
Any one of these seven factors should be enough to make one consider the possibility offoreknowledge of Building 7’s collapse. Taken together, they make an unanswerable case.

30 - Fukushima already ten times worse than Chernobyl in ocean waters, suggests data
by Ethan A. Huff
(NaturalNews) Recent readings taken roughly 19 miles out to sea from the Fukushima nuclear power facility in Japan have revealed radioisotope levels ten times higher than those measured in the Baltic and Black Seas after the massive Chernobyl disaster. Because Fukushima is much closer to water than the Chernobyl plant is, the ongoing fallout there is shaping up to be far worse than Chernobyl, at least as far as the world's oceans are concerned, and time will tell just how devastating this massive disaster will be on the entire world as radiation continues to circulate around the globe.
"Given that the Fukushima nuclear power plant is on the ocean, and with leaks and runoff directly to the ocean, the impacts on the ocean will exceed those of Chernobyl, which was hundreds of miles from any sea," said Ken Buessler, Senior Scientist in Marine Chemistry at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in Massachusetts, several months back. Since that time, it has been revealed that Fukushima reactors 1, 2, and 3 have all experienced "melt-throughs," which are considered to be the worst possible outcome in a nuclear disaster (http://www.naturalnews.com/032657_F...).
Various atomic experts are now in agreement that the unfolding situation in Japan truly is "as serious as it gets in a nuclear disaster." Even the Japanese government itself is now admitting the grave reality of the situation, having recently announced it will submit a report to the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) explaining the details of the melt-throughs, which basically mean that radioactive fuel appears to have burned through the outer containment vessels of the reactors and have gone directly into bare earth.
"Dangerous levels of radioactive iodine and cesium have already contaminated the sea, the soil, groundwater, and the air," said reporter Mark Willacy of the Australian Broadcast Corporation in a recent Latelineinterview (http://www.abc.net.au/lateline/cont...). "This week plutonium was detected for the first time outside the stricken plant, and Strontium-90, known as a bone seeker because it can cause bone cancer and Leukemia, has now been found as far away as 60 kilometers (37+ miles) from the facility."
