GERMANY HOLDS MILITARY EXERCISE WITH ISRAEL

Published On 10/28/2015 | By Lee R | News, World News

Considering that 70 years ago, the Germans lampshaded 60 trillion Jews, participating in a military exercise with Israeli Jews is the least the German people could do.

Angela Merkel is also a great German heroine for trying to genocide the German people.  It is justice for their ancestors committing the lampshading.

From i24:

Israel and Germany have conducted the largest joint exercises in urban combat the two countries have ever done, the Israeli daily Haaretz reported Wednesday.

Over 100 German soldiers from the Panzer division in Israel three weeks ago and will stay until this Friday to train at the southern army base of Tze’elim.

Brig. Gen. Ernst-Peter Horn said that the drills were meant to share experience, saying that Germany has “had experience in that over the past 10 years — in Afghanistan and Kosovo. The Israeli army also has experience,” adding that “this doesn’t mean we’ve changed anything, but it’s always good to evaluate things and see something different.”

In addition to the 110 infantry and logistics troops, Germany also sent five heavy military vehicles.

German, Israel armies hold largest joint drill in Jewish State

According to the Israeli daily Haaretz, the German soldiers were invited partake in Shabbat dinners with Israeli families on Friday nights. “I didn’t know what to expect, but it wasn’t different from my family back home,” one of them was quoted as saying.

In May, Germany’s Defense Minister, Ursula von der Leyen, said that Germany’s closest security operations were with Israel, and has transferred four Patriot missile batteries to Israel and sold the Jewish State six German-made corvette warships.

The ships, worth 430 million euros ($480 million), will be built by Thyssen Krupp and delivered within five years, providing significantly more fire power to Israel’s navy.

The German government will pay 115 million euros towards the cost. As part of its atonement for the Nazi Holocaust, Germany is committed to Israel’s security and has often helped pay in the past for the cost of military equipment such as submarines.

The German soldiers arrived in Israel at a tense time, with a wave of terror attacks committed by Palestinians against Israeli soldiers and civilians.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu also caused controversy between the two allies before a visit to Berlin by saying a Muslim elder had convinced Adolf Hitler to exterminate Jews.

“All Germans know the history of the murderous race mania of the Nazis that led to the break with civilization that was the Holocaust,” Chancellor Angela Merkel’s spokesman Steffen Seibert said when asked about Netanyahu’s remarks.

“This is taught in German schools for good reason, it must never be forgotten. And I see no reason to change our view of history in any way. We know that responsibility for this crime against humanity is German and very much our own.”

The official establishment of diplomatic ties between the two states in 1965 was far from a given after six million Jews perished in the Holocaust in the 1940s; however Germany has since proved to be one of Israel’s staunchest allies on the international arena.

MONKEY PRESIDENT OF JEWMERICA SENDS SPECIAL FORCES INTO SYRIA FOR NO SPECIFIC REASON

Published On 10/30/2015 | By Lee R |

The dumb African monkey President of Jewmerica has decided to send Special Forces into Syria for no specific reason.  I guess it is to fight ISIS?  Maybe show Vladimir Putin that he isn’t some type of pussy faggot?

Whatever, who the hell knows at this point.  I doubt even Obama knows himself.

He said back in 2013 that he would never do something like this so he obviously lied.  Of course he’s lied about almost all of his polices and pretty much everything he’s ever done while in the White House.  I guess this was to be expected.

From Jew York Times:

President Obama announced on Friday that he had ordered several dozen Special Operations troops into Syria for the first open-ended mission by United States ground forces in that country, deepening American involvement in a war he has tried to avoid for more than four years.

While the deployment was small in scale, it was large in importance for a president who had refused to commit American ground forces inside Syria beyond quick raids. White House officials said the troops would advise local forces fighting the Islamic State and not play a direct combat role, but they left open the possibility of sending more in the future.

State Dept Pledges US Forces Deployed to Syria Will Not Fight Assad

President Barack Obama's decision to send US Special Forces to Syria is directed against the Islamic State group, not Syrian President Bashar Assad, according to US Secretary of State John Kerry

President Barack Obama’s decision to send US Special Forces to Syria is directed against the Islamic State group, not Syrian President Bashar Assad, according to US Secretary of State John Kerry.

Secretary of State John Kerry said that President Obama is sending US special forces to Syria to help take down Islamic State (ISIL) militants, not to overthrow the government of Syrian President Bashar Assad, RIA Novosti reported.

“This is not a decision to take part in the civil war in Syria, and this action is not against Assad; this move is against the Islamic State,” Kerry said at a press conference in the Kyrgyz capital Bishkek.

He recalled that the United States and 65 countries have united in a coalition, pledging to “completely eradicate the threat that ISIL poses.”

(L-R) Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, U.N. Special Envoy for Syria Staffan de Mistura and U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry hold a news conference at the Grand Hotel in Vienna, Austria October 30, 2015

Kerry added that from its headquarters in Syria and Iraq, the jihadist group is seeking to extend “its tentacles” toward Afghanistan, Iran and Libya.” He excoriated Islamic State militants, calling them a “real evil”and saying that they destroy people and subject others to slavery.

“Stoking violence is their custom, and we must respond to this modern-day threat,” Kerry warned.

Kerry also said that Kyrgyzstan can take part in the fight against ISIL, notably by preventing the recruitment of new ISIL members on Kyrgyz soil. On Friday, White House officials announced that a small number of US special operations forces will be sent to Syria as part of a shift in Washington’s strategy against ISIL.

The officials said that President Obama had authorized the deployment of a contingent of fewer than 50 commandos to northern Syria, who will cooperate with the so-called moderate opposition forces who are combating Islamic State militants.

The Russian Crash in Sinai, ISIS Claims “Shoot Down”

ISIS in Sinai, an Israeli group, claims shootdown and posts video

… by  Gordon Duff, VT Sr. Senior Editor

[ Note: This story began with an airline crash and many suspicions.  Now we have a claim by ISIS in Sinai, a shadowy group organized by Saudi intelligence with full complicity of Israel, opening the border into Negev for a peek-a-boo war, like ISIS in Syria/Daar’a Province.

The video is not confirmed and is being carried by Iranian media and hosted by VT.  I just got off the phone with our resident airline security expert, Lt. Col. Stephen Avery.  He flew the Airbus 321 when a pilot and head of security for US Air.  Pay close attention to what he says here:

“The Airbus a321 can make a higher altitude towards the end of the flight as the fuel is being burned off.  The Airbus 319 and 320 have no problems unless you have a nut pilot in the cockpit with the door locked from the inside.The strongest headwinds that I have ever seen happened to me over Cairo headed up to Sig, Sicily.”

He says the plane won’t do 31,000 feet, the wing and engines too small, one of the worst commercial airliners in history.  He claims it could never have reached this altitude without endless coaxing, which adds credence to the ISIS video.  We will keep updating…GD ]

Update on this plane

This  specific jet was involved in an actual tail strike earlier in a landing at Cairo (several years ago from Beirut to Cairo).  Significant damage occurred at that time. This aircraft the AB 321 is not liked by pilots due to its length causing tail strikes on takeoff and landings.  The tail could have come off as well if it was not repaired correctly earlier especially in Egypt. The pilots had to have had the power to max to gain that much altitude in such a short time, especially when it was full of passengers and their baggage and cargo! Probably max fuel needed going into the wind (hearsay).  Again I don’t know anything about turbulence, strong headwinds, etc. Again, pilots don’t like this specific model (AB 321) , but it looks great! J The 318, 319 and 320 are great aircraft though.  This is all hearsay and not verified.  This is just my two cents worth as a retired pilot.  s

____________

[ Update: 2 pm EST –  Egyptian authorities are still reporting pilot contact regarding technical problems and request to land. Rescue teams had to hike 4 miles to the crash site.  They are reporting all bodies recovers and mostly burn from impact fires…JD ]

____________

[ Update: 3:05pm EST – Moscow and Cairo have denied claims by the Daesh Takfiri group’s Egyptian affiliate to have downed a Russian aircraft that crashed in North Sinai with more than 200 passengers on board.

“Now in various media there is assorted information that the Russian passenger (plane)… was supposedly shot down by an anti-aircraft missile, fired by terrorists. This information can’t be considered accurate,” Russian Transport Minister Maksim Sokolov said on Saturday.

“We are in close contact with our Egyptian colleagues and aviation authorities in the country. At present, they have no information that would confirm such insinuations,” he added.

Meanwhile, Mohamed Samir, Egypt’s army spokesman, also refuted the claim by the Takfiri group, saying that “the army sees no authenticity” to the terrorists claims or videos.

“They can put out whatever statements they want but there is no proof at this point that terrorists were responsible for this plane crash” he said.

“We will know the true reasons when the civil aviation authority in coordination with Russian authorities completes its investigation,” he added.

Siani shoot down_crop

Family members wait though nothing they want to hear will ever be said

Yesterday, we received warnings that an American plane would be shot down over Syria and blamed on the Russians accompanied by a transcript of the plans being made.  

Today a Russian airliner carrying over 200 passengers plunged to the ground after reading 31,000 feet, something atypical for airline crashes.  Planes seldom hit cruising altitude and develop mechanical problems.

The plane had just flown over Israeli/ISIS controlled territory when the mishap developed.  There are still mechanical problems with planes, this one an 18 year old, not that old, an Airbus 321 filled with Russian vacationers returning from Egyptian beaches to St. Petersburg.

However, there are lots of ways to bring down aircraft, hacks, little explosive devices and such and a recent history filled with games tied to aircraft crashes, particularly involving Malaysian Airlines as everyone is aware. From al Alam in Tehran:

According to Flight Radar 24, the jet was plunging at 5,760 feet per minute at 30,000 feet when it lost contact with air traffic controllers.

Here is the rub, bringing down aircraft filled with innocent civilians is a typical form of state terrorism.  America has used it against Iran, we are told Libya used it against the US (and Scotland) but that issue has never been settled to anyone’s satisfaction.  We lost a Polish president on a crash over Russia which Russia has been accused of causing though the political upheavals in the region would put my money on NATO as the culprit, opinion only.

Kaiser_505

Russia brought down a Korean airlines 747, we could go on forever, simply mentioning the crashes and “downings” that we are supposed to know of.

Never take an airline crash at face value.  Never take an airline crash near a combat zone at face value.  Always look for an angry nation state “player” looking for revenge, Israel certainly qualifies but with the current command bifurcation in the US, they aren’t above involvement either.

How many times have civilians been sacrificed for geopolitical gain

If one were to look at the airport personnel at Sharm el Sheikh, where the ill fated flight began, would one find penetration by foreign intelligence services or Egyptian personnel on the payroll of Saudi Arabia?

Let’s take a look at Saudi Arabia.  The Saudi king and Saudi foreign minister are continually either visiting Moscow or on the phone with Putin or Lavrov.  Yesterday’s conference in Vienna which put Iran and Saudi Arabia at the same table didn’t come up with a comprehensive settlement but the items that were settled went very much the wrong way for Saudi Arabia.

All of the groups the Saudis are supporting with cash and advanced weapons will be on the terror list and subject to obliteration by the 19 nation coalition.  When Saudi continues sending in weapons, and they will certainly do that, eventually they will run afoul of Russia for certain and, weak though this has become, public opinion around the world.

The holocaust in Yemen has already stained Saudi Arabia beyond redemption anyway.

Would they have plotted against Russia and brought down this aircraft?  The answer is a resounding yes.  Are there factions in Saudi Arabia that would use this against not only Russia but the current king who is seen as incompetent and sickly?  The answer again is yes.

The second player is Israel.  Russia has, during the last week, bombed Israeli backed terrorists on Golan Heights, right under Israeli air defenses, an area where the Israeli Air Force has openly attacked Syrian forces in the past, though inside Syria.

Now the rules have changed and the terrorists, mostly al Nusra, but some FSA “moderate terrorists” as well, though there has yet to be anyone to prove the FSA is still active inside Syria, are being bombed out of existence.  Their only choice is to flee to Israel across the demilitarized zone policed by the United Nations or to sneak into Jordan where the government there has begun only recently rounding up terrorists.

Is this enough to enrage Israel into another of its endless crazed “USS Liberty” type acts of state terror? Then again, did the plan crash on its own?

Today Russian investigators will be flooding into Cairo.  Those who waited with baited breath for the MH17 report to come from the Dutch, believing this would go somewhere and that NATO could engineer though state terror adequate moral highground to justify US military intervention in Ukraine, may have their day in reverse.

Now Russia gets to report and can take all the time they need.  Will Russia take advantage of this reversal of fortune?

Report from Tehran first:

Another bad day for the families

The wreckage of a Russian Airbus A321 plane, which apparently crashed while en route from Sharm el-Sheikh to St. Petersburg on Oct. 31, has been discovered in Egypt.

Earlier in the morning the Russian Federal Air Transport Agency (Rosaviatsiya) possesses information indicating that an Airbus A321 plane en route from Egypt to St. Petersburg disappeared from radar screens. The plane was carrying 224 people, including 217 passengers and 7 crewmembers.

All passengers on board a Kolavia aircraft are Russian citizens, the Govorit Moskva radio station reported with reference to a source from the Russian embassy to Egypt. The Irish-owned aircraft was leased by a Russian airline. It crashed in the Hassana area, south of Arish.

Reports suggest the pilot had warned air traffic controllers of a technical issue on board the aircraft. Weather conditions were said to be poor at the time of the crash.

Egyptian security officials have found the wreckage in a remote mountainous region which has large numbers of ISIS-affiliated terrorists, although they are not thought to possess any weapons which could hit a passenger jet at its 35,000 feet cruising altitude, Daily Mail Reports according to Egyptian security sources.

Egyptian security officials confirmed that there are unlikely to be any survivors following the accident.

The plane went down in a mountainous area in central Sinai and poor weather conditions have made it difficult for rescue crews to get to the scene, the officer said. Survivors and bodies of those on board will be flown to Cairo, the security source said.

According to Russian news agencies, the aircraft was an Airbus A-321 operated by Kogalymavia Aircraft. Egyptian emergency authorities have sent 45 ambulances to the scene to help with the rescue efforts. There were no indications the aircraft was shot down, according to Egyptian security sources.

The aircraft went down in an area where pilots are warned against flying at less than 24,000 feet because of the danger of ‘dedicated anti-aircraft weapons’.

Passenger Jets Don’t Fall Out of the Sky Like a Rock..Welcome to World War III

The Airbus 321 has a good safety record, one that precludes dropping like a rock out of the sky. And that’s what one flight expert said on “RT” in an interview this morning.

Even with both engines out, the A 321 could glide to a fairly safe landing, not fall apart in the sky and crash.

Falling from the sky within miles of the US military base in the Sinai housing “Task Force Sinai,” charged with helping keep the peace between Egypt and the nutso’s of ‘Stolenland,’ since 1982.

ISIS–Israeli State in Syria–claims it shot down the Russian jet. If that is true, it means the USA, thru its control of the various IS/Daesh terrorists, is responsible for this massacre.

So when the same beings of pure hatred and insanity shot down an American fighter jet soon in Syria, Jew Inc’s media will claim it was revenge for the downing of the Russian passenger jet.

When you consider that the same SOB’s were behind the 9/11 False Flag and were jumping with joy at the destruction of Syria, until the Russian Air Force stepped in and changed the dynamic. Now they have produced a horrible incident that will make Russians clamor for Putin to halt helping Syria fight US and Israeli terrorists.

UPDATE: Here’s what got ‘wiped off the face of the Earth,’ by the Jew MSM. The part about there being survivors was in the original Yahoo story, but got wiped.

Fortunately, Press TV still has that:

Despite that assertion, an officer with the Egyptian search and rescue team present at the site has said he heard voices in a section of the Russian plane’s wreckage. He has been quoted as saying that some passengers may still be alive.

This story also says the jet fell vertically. That doesn’t happen with engine failure.

This has all the hallmarks of an attack by a chicken-shit nation like Israel, which likes to shot pregnant women in the belly and bomb children, then strut around like bad-asses, and the USA, whose military is filled with hateful Bible Thumpers wanting desperately to set off WW III so they can ascend to Heaven on a stairway built out of billions of radioactive corpses.

Russian Plane Crashes Over Sinai, 224 Dead – Who Did It?

Andrew Anglin
Daily Stormer
October 31, 2015

This model jet
This model jet

Happening: A Russian passenger jet has crashed over Sinai, killing all 224 passengers.

It is extremely rare for a plane to crash from cruising altitude due to technical or human failure, and ISIS is claiming responsibility.

Reuters:

A Russian airliner carrying 224 passengers crashed into a mountainous area of Egypt’s Sinai peninsula on Saturday shortly after losing radar contact near cruising altitude, killing all aboard.

The Airbus A321, operated by Russian airline Kogalymavia under the brand name Metrojet, was flying from the Sinai Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheikh to St Petersburg in Russia when it went down in central Sinai soon after daybreak, the aviation ministry said.

A north Sinai security source said initial examination suggested the crash could have been caused by a technical fault; but it was too early to draw any firm conclusions. The plane, he said, had landed in a “vertical fashion”, contributing to the scale of devastation and burning.

“I now see a tragic scene,” an Egyptian security officer at the site told Reuters by telephone. “A lot of dead on the ground and many who died whilst strapped to their seats.

“The plane split into two, a small part on the tail end that burned and a larger part that crashed into a rockface. We have extracted at least 100 bodies and the rest are still inside,” the officer, who requested anonymity, said.

A militant group affiliated to Islamic State in Egypt, Sinai Province, said in a statement carried by the Aamaq website, which acts as a semi-official news agency for Islamic State, that it had brought down the plane “in response to Russian airstrikes that killed hundreds of Muslims on Syrian land”.

Russia’s Transport Minister told Interfax news agency said the Islamic State claim “can’t be considered accurate”.

Russia, an ally of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, launched air raids against opposition groups in Syria including Islamic State on Sept. 30.Security sources said there was no indication the Airbus had been shot down or blown up.

Sinai is the scene of an insurgency by militants close to Islamic State, who have killed hundreds of Egyptian soldiers and police and have also attacked Western targets in recent months.

Accidents at cruising altitude are one of the rarest categories of accidents but also among the most deadly, accounting for 13 percent of fatal incidents but 27 percent of fatalities since 2005, according to Boeing.

Investigators would be looking into, among other things, the weather at the time, the pilots’ experience, maintenance records, signs of a stall and any evidence of an explosion.

According to FlightRadar24, an authoritative Sweden-based flight tracking service, the aircraft was descending rapidly at about 6,000 feet (1,800 meters) per minute when the signal was lost to air traffic control.

Certainly, when something like this happens, you automatically assume Jews did it.

Of course, it is true that Russia has had a poor safety record overall, and that this could be a coincidence. But what a coincidence, in the middle of all this drama.

Worth noting is that while Russia’s safety record with air travel is objectively bad, relative to other developed countries, this is not a normal crash. They have had twenty crashes in the last 20 years, and none of them were at cruising altitude and most of them were domestic.

One thing is certain: the Jews are insane, and would do this.

Another thing is certain: Putin will get to the bottom of it.

The crash took place right near the border of Jew Base Alpha.

Suspicious? I think so.
Suspicious? I think so.

Jews certainly have the capacity to shoot down a plane at cruising altitude, while ISIS does not. Though obviously Jews could have transferred the weapons to ISIS to perform this action. And that is probably what they would have done, rather than use their own men to do it.

Right now, Russia is saying they have no reason to rule anything out – or assume anything.

Reuters:

Russian aviation regulator Rosaviatsia said on Saturday that it didn’t yet see any reason to blame the crash of a Russian airliner in Egypt on a technical failure, an error by the crew or external actions, RIA news agency reported.

“Until there is reliable evidence about the circumstances of what happened, there is no sense in putting forward and discussing any versions,” RIA quoted Rosaviatsia as saying in a statement.

It is somewhat funny to compare that to the way the West reacted to MH17 being shot down, when before anything at all was known, they immediately asserted that Putin was personally responsible.

But that sums up the situation: no one knows anything, so any speculation is just speculation.

This crash could be nothing. And it could be massive.

We’ll just have to see how it unfolds.

“And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.”

~ Jesus Christ, John, Ch. 8, Verse 32

“For nothing is secret that shall not be made manifest; neither any thing hid, that shall not be known and come abroad.”

~ Jesus Christ, Ch. 8, Verse 17

“If this book has any sombre look, that is the native hue of the story it tells, not the reflection of my own cast of mind. I have written with feeling: the feeling of a contemporary, participant, eye-witness and of a journalist thwarted in his calling, which in my belief should serve truth without fear or favour, not special interests. I have seen more of the events of our century and of the secret perversions of national purposes than most, and have discovered through this experience that it was not all chance, but design. Therefore I have written a protest, but it is a protest against the suppression of truth, not against life.”

~ Douglas Reed, The Controversy of Zion (1956), Epilogue, P. 568

Two days from the time of this writing, on October 26th, 2015, a trial in B.C. Supreme Court involving the case of Regina v Roy Arthur Topham will commence in the small city of Quesnel, located in the central interior of the province of British Columbia in an area known as the Cariboo.

In essence this isn’t just the trial of Arthur Topham based upon a politically motivated and spurious Sec. 319(2) Criminal Code of Canada “Hate Propaganda” charge initiated by one of Canada’s largest Zionist Jew lobby organization, B’nai Brith Canada. It’s far more than that. What will be on trial from October 26th to November 6th is the legal entitlement of all Canadians to exercise their Constitutionally guaranteed right to freedom of expression, both on and off the Internet –  as written in Canada’s Charter of Rights and Freedoms, Sec. 2b which states that “Everyone has the following fundamental freedoms: (b) freedom of thought, belief, opinion and expression, including freedom of the press and other media of communication“.

The outcome of the trial will determine whether or not Canada is, in fact, a truly open and free democracy or a nation whose sovereignty and freedom has been compromised by the wilful, premeditated actions of foreign lobbyists inimical to the country as a whole. In other words Freedom of Speech will be on trial.

The charge itself ought to be clearly understood by everyone concerned about their rights and freedoms as Canadians. Thus we see that the charge under Sec. 319(2) of the Criminal Code reads as follows:

Roy Arthur TOPHAM, between the 28th day of April, 2011 and the 4th day of May, 2012, inclusive, at or near Quesnel, in the Province of British Columbia, did by communicating statements, other than in private conversation, willfully promote hatred against an identifiable group, people of the Jewish religion or ethnic origin, contrary to Section 319(2) of the Criminal Code.

B.C. Supreme Court Justice Butler will preside and a jury of twelve men and women will make the final determination of guilty or not guilty.

EndHateCrimeLegislation 2 copy 2

Basically, to narrow it down to its core intent, I am being charged with willfully promoting hatred against people of the Jewish religion or ethnic origin based upon the multitude of articles and online books which I have published on my website prior to and since April 28th, 2011 when the complaint was officially laid against me by Canada’s most controversial serial complainant in the history of the human rights industry. Within a month of the first complaint being laid a second individual, an agent working for the League of Human Rights of B’nai Brith Canada, also filed an identical charge.

Upon receiving the complaints, the head of the BC Hate Crime Team, former Det. Cst. Terry Wilson located in Surrey, B.C. along with his partner Cst. Normandie Levas, initiated an investigation into the allegations. What was unknown to me at the time was that all three of these individuals knew each other and had known each other in some cases for as long as fifteen years and all three of them were in the “business” of hunting down and attacking individuals and website owners who were being critical of the foreign Zionist state of Israel and/or its ideology known as Zionism.

In fact the two complainants in the Sec. 319(2) complaint were known to be friends and associates as far back as 2007 when one of the same complainants, a Zionist Jew working for B’nai Brith Canada first laid a similar complaint against my person and my website RadicalPress.com using the now repealed Canadian Human Rights Act legislation known as Sec. 13. In other words I have been attacked by this foreign Zionist lobby organization now for the past nine years and have been in a constant battle with them to retain my basic human rights.

The whole of Crown’s case rests upon the key terms “willfully” and “hatred”, which, in the case of the latter term “hatred”, any person of common sense will realize, is a word that, like its opposite, “love”, is imbued with multiple meanings, all of which are based upon subjective emotions of one type or another.

Now there are some serious problems that accompany an allegation which accuses a person of “hating” a whole “identifiable group” such as the “people of the Jewish religion or ethnic origin” based upon not only his own writings but also the written works of dozens of other writers, journalists, video producers, talk show hosts, artists, musicians and so on and these problems will undoubtedly come up during the course of the trial.

FREEXPRESSIONLOCKUP copy 3

Without going into too much further detail surrounding the spurious nature of the charge of promoting “hatred” toward all the Jews of the world (an accusation arising from comments made to me by former Det. Cst. Terry Wilson during the time I was incarcerated after my arrest on May 16th, 2012) I would rather focus on letting readers know a bit about who I really am and what my life has been all about since at least the year 1967 when I first became involved in what is now commonly referred to as “political activism” or “social activism”.

I was twenty years old and in my second year of university at Simon Fraser University in Burnaby, B.C. in 1967. For those who were too young to remember the Sixties or weren’t born yet, it was a period of history not that different from the world we’re now living in. Wars were rampant then as they are now. Protests and civil rights and civil liberties were still in their nascent stages of development relative to today’s scene but people were demanding their rights in the Sixties just as they still are today. Police brutality and corporate crime and political corruption were as widespread then as they are now and the mainstream media in 1967 was basically just as controlled by the Zionists as it is today. The only fundamental difference really was the sudden and unexpected appearance throughout Western society of what became known as the Hippie Movement. It was that previously unheard of phenomenon that attracted me and countless others and became the focus of my life; one which has never ceased or abated since I first became involved with it.

The watchwords of the Hippie Movement were “Love” and “Peace” and our collective efforts to manifest those two positive, life-enhancing moral qualities throughout the war-torn society of our day were what inspired millions of my generation to work toward a world where violence and war and terror and hatred would end forever to be replaced by the fundamental Christian values and precepts taught by Jesus Christ, values that included learning to love each other and respect each other as well as caring for the Earth Mother that sustained us all. These were my guiding principles throughout my life and remain so to this very day.

With that in mind the accusation of the Zionist lobbyists, when it comes to dealing with their own hatred of anything or anyone who doesn’t support their ideological objectives or the actions of the foreign state of Israel and its parallel objectives, that every critic of their political agenda “hates” all the Jews in the world is utterly preposterous and beyond all comprehension. Having fashioned the term “hatred” into a twisted, Talmudic talisman of loathing and contempt through generations of endless propaganda emanating from their own controlled media and then inserting the word into Canadian jurisprudence via legal subterfuge and political influence, they now feel that they have the judicial wherewithal to attack their perceived enemies and somehow stem the unstoppable tide of political and spiritual awareness that was birthed in the Sixties and then embellished beyond comprehension and control in Nineties with the advent of the World Wide Web.

The controversy surrounding the Jews throughout history has now reached the point of culmination. Their mission to stop the truth from being revealed. whenever it applies to their own culpable actions, by using the criminal court system to attack the truth revealers is doomed to end in failure just as their efforts to stop the Internet from exposing their heinous acts of terror and murder and destruction perpetrated upon the defenceless Semitic people of Palestine has proven to be unstoppable.

The Age of Orwellian Censorship is coming to an end and it behooves all people of all races, nationalities, ethnicities and colour including the Jews to recognize that no single group of people has the right or the power or the ability to stem the tide of evolutionary consciousness that’s now happening on this planet.

It’s for these basic reasons that I have fought against the Zionist efforts to control our basic human rights over the past nine years. Now we will see if the country is willing to protect its most precious of gift – the freedom to speak one’s mind and express one’s views on whatever issues they deem of value to sustain our God given right to live in peace and happiness without fear and war.

I pray that God will grant us the wisdom to choose freedom over censorship and love over hate.

Arthur and the Jews: The controversy over freedom of speech

Introductory note by Lasha Darkmoon

Arthur-Topham-resizedThe trial of Canadian patriot Arthur Topham began in British Columbia yesterday. Arthur’s alleged crime? Incitement to hatred against Jews for publishing on his website various items regarded as highly offensive to Jews, such as The Protocols of the Elders of Zion and other such ‘incendiary’ material.

If Arthur is found guilty, there will be two immediate consequences:  (1) Arthur will be severely punished with imprisonment, fines, and the shutting down of his websites. (2) Freedom of speech in Canada will have received its final deathblow, with Jews henceforth being the only arbiters of what may or may not be said in Canada.

With Jews alone being allowed to define the parameters of “hate speech”, all negative criticism of Israel will come to be seen as hateful and intolerable. The slightest offense given to a Jew will become grounds for complaint and criminal investigation. Attacking the enemies of the Jews, however, will be freely permitted and even encouraged, with Muslims and Christians becoming the new “Nazis”.

In short, if Arthur Topham is found guilty, a new unwritten Eleventh Commandment will take root in Canada, and, in the course of time, spread like a virus to other countries: THOU SHALT LOVE THE JEWS AND HATE THE JEWS’ ENEMIES AND AT ALL TIMES SERVE AND OBEY THY JEWISH MASTERS.

‘World War I’ behind the Scenes – The Rise of the NWO/Culling of Man

“For decades, the British and American governments have denied that there were weapons on the Lusitania. The site of the sinking was declared a protected site, denying divers access. To further frustrate the ability to determine what the Lusitania carried, the Royal Navy, beginning in 1946, repeatedly dropped depth charges on top of the Lusitania as a site for target practice. In 1968, to keep the truth secret, the British Secret Service unsuccessfully attempted to buy the salvage rights to the Lusitania. In 1993 PBS Online visited the wreck and found previous visitors had tampered with the evidence. While the British governments aggressively worked to distort the truth, weapons were confirmed in July 2006 when Victor Quirke of the Cork Sub Aqua Club found 15,000 rounds of .303 bullets in the bow section of the ship, confirming munitions were indeed being transported.”

Winston Churchill Exposed Evil Communist Jews

Daily Stormer
October 27, 2014

06n25churchill-382089
Winston Churchill, the man who would go on to be one of the biggest Jewish puppets in history, told the truth about the Jews in his younger days.

The following is from article written by Sir Winston Churchill that was published in theIllustrated Sunday Morning Herald on February 8, 1920:

This movement among the Jews is not new. From the days of Spartacus-Weishaupt to those of Karl Marx, and down to Trotsky (Russia), Bela Kun (Hungary), Rosa Luxembourg (Germany), and Emma Goldman (United States), this world-wide conspiracy for the overthrow of civilization and for the reconstitution of society on the basis of arrested development, of envious malevolence, and impossible equality, has been steadily growing. It played, as a modern writer, Mrs. Webster, has so ably shown, a definitely recognizable part in the tragedy of the French Revolution. It has been the mainspring of every subversive movement during the Nineteenth Century; and now at last this band of extraordinary personalities from the underworld of the great cities of Europe and America have gripped the Russian people by the hair of their heads and have become practically the undisputed masters of that enormous empire.

There is no need to exaggerate the part played in the creation of Bolshevism and in the actual bringing about of the Russian Revolution, by these international and for the most part atheistical Jews, it is certainly a very great one; it probably outweighs all others. With the notable exception of Lenin, the majority of the leading figures are Jews. Moreover, the principal inspiration and driving power comes from the Jewish leaders. Thus Tchitcherin, a pure Russian, is eclipsed by his nominal subordinate Litvinoff, and the influence of Russians like Bukharin or Lunacharski cannot be compared with the power of Trotsky, or of Zinovieff, the Dictator of the Red Citadel (Petrograd) or of Krassin or Radek — all Jews. In the Soviet institutions the predominance of Jews is even more astonishing. And the prominent, if not indeed the principal, part in the system of terrorism applied by the Extraordinary Commissions for Combating Counter-Revolution [the Cheka] has been taken by Jews, and in some notable cases by Jewesses. The same evil prominence was obtained by Jews in the brief period of terror during which Bela Kun ruled in Hungary. The same phenomenon has been presented in Germany (especially in Bavaria), so far as this madness has been allowed to prey upon the temporary prostration of the German people. Although in all these countries there are many non-Jews every whit as bad as the worst of the Jewish revolutionaries, the part played by the latter in proportion to their numbers in the population is astonishing.

Are they going to claim Winston Churchill is just a filthy Antisemitic liar too?

The Rothschild 1901 – 1919: The secret creators of World War 1

1901: The Jews from the colonies set up in Palestine by Edmond James de Rothschild, send a delegation to him which tell him, “If you wish to save the Yishuv (The Jewish settlement) first take your hands from it, and for once permit the colonists to have the possibility of correcting for themselves what needs correcting.” Edmond James de Rothschild is very angry about this and states, “I created the Yishuv, I alone. Therefore no men, neither colonists nor organisations have the right to interfere in my plans.” The Rothschild banking-house in Frankfurt, Germany, M. A. von Rothschild und Söhne, closes as there is no male Rothschild heir to take it on. 1902: Philippe de Rothschild born.

1905: A group of Rothschild backed Zionist Jews led by Georgi Apollonovich Gapon attempt to overthrow the Tsar in Russia in a Communist Coup. They fail and are forced to flee Russia only to be given refuge in Germany.

The Jewish Encyclopaedia (Vol. 2, p.497) states, “It is a somewhat curious sequel to the attempt to set up a Catholic competitor to the Rothschilds that at the present time the latter are the guardians of the papal treasure.”

1906: The Rothschilds claim that due to growing instability in the region and increasing competition from Rockefeller (the Rockefeller family are Rothschild descendants through a female bloodline) owned Standard Oil, this is why they sell their Caspian and Black Sea Petroleum Company to Royal Dutch and Shell. This is another example of the Rothschilds trying to hide their true wealth.

1907: Rothschild, Jacob Schiff, the head of Kuhn, Loeb and Co., in a speech to the New York Chamber of Commerce, warns that, “Unless we have a Central Bank with adequate control of credit resources, this country is going to undergo the most severe and far-reaching money panic in its history.” Suddenly America finds itself in the middle of another typical run of the mill Rothschild-engineered financial crisis, which ruins as usual ruins the lives of millions of innocent people throughout America and makes billions for the Rothschilds.

1909: Jacob Schiff founds the National Advancement for the Association of the Coloured People (NAACP). This was done to incite black people into rioting, looting and other forms of disorder, in order to cause a rift between the black and white communities. Jewish historian, Howard Sachar, states the following in his book, “A History of the Jews in America,” “In 1914, Professor Emeritus Joel Spingarn of Columbia University became chairman of the NAACP and recruited for its board such Jewish leaders as Jacob Schiff, Jacob Billikopf, and Rabbi Stephen Wise.” Other Ashkenazi Jew co-founders included Julius Rosenthal, Lillian Wald and Rabbi Emil G. Hirsch. It was not until 1920 that the NAACP appointed its first black president, James Weldon Johnson. Maurice de Rothschild marries Ashkenazi Jew, Noémie Halphen.

1911: Werner Sombart, in his book, “The Jews and Modern Capitalism,” stated that from 1820 on, it was the, “Age of the Rothschild,” and concluded that there was, “Only one power in Europe, and that is Rothschild.”

1912: In the December issue of, “Truth,” magazine, George R. Conroy states of banker Jacob Schiff, “Mr Schiff is head of the great private banking house of Kuhn, Loeb, and co, which represents the Rothschilds interests on this side of the Atlantic. He has been described as financial strategist and has been for years the financial minister of the great impersonal power known as Standard Oil.” He was hand in glove with the Harrimans, the Goulds, and the Rockefellers in all their railroad enterprises and has become the dominant power in the railroad and financial power of America.”

1913: On March 4, Woodrow Wilson is elected the 28th President of the United States. Shortly after he is inaugurated, he is visited in the White House by Ashkenazi Jew, Samuel Untermyer, of law firm, Guggenheim, Untermyer, and Marshall, who tries to blackmail him for the sum of $40,000 in relation to an affair Wilson had whilst he was a professor at Princeton University, with a fellow professor’s wife. President Wilson does not have the money, so Untermyer volunteers to pay the $40,000 out of his own pocket to the woman Wilson had had the affair with, on the condition that Wilson promise to appoint to the first vacancy on the United States Supreme Court a nominee to be recommended to President Wilson by Untermyer. Wilson agrees to this. Jacob Schiff sets up the Anti Defamation League (ADL) in the United States. This organisation is formed to slander anyone who questions or challenges the Rothschild global conspiracy as, “anti-semitic.” Strangely enough, the same year that they do this they also set up their last and current central bank in America, the Federal Reserve. Congressman Charles Lindbergh stated following the passing of the Federal Reserve Act on December 23, “The Act establishes the most gigantic trust on earth. When the President signs this Bill, the invisible government of the monetary power will be legalized…….The greatest crime of the ages is perpetrated by this banking and currency bill.” It is important to note that the Federal Reserve is a private company, it is neither Federal nor does it have any Reserve. It is conservatively estimated that profits exceed $150 billion per year and the Federal Reserve has never once in its history published accounts.

1914: The start of World War I. In this war, the German Rothschilds loan money to the Germans, the British Rothschilds loan money to the British, and the French Rothschilds loan money to the French. Futhermore, the Rothschilds have control of the three European news agencies, Wolff (est. 1849) in Germany, Reuters (est. 1851) in England, and Havas (est. 1835) in France. The Rothschilds use Wolff to manipulate the German people into a fervour for war.From around this time, the Rothschilds are rarely reported in the media, because they own the media.

1916: On June 4, Ashkenazi Jew, Louis Dembitz Brandeis is appointed to the Supreme Court of the United States by President Wilson as per his agreed blackmail payment to Samuel Untermyer some three years earlier. Justice Brandeis is also the elected leader of the Executive Committee for Zionist Affairs, a position he has held since 1914. The middle of World War II Germany was winning the war as they were being financed by the Rothschilds to a greater extent than France, Italy and England, because Rothschilds, did not want to support the Tsar in Russia, and of course Russia was on the same side as France, Italy and England. Then a significant event occurred. Germany, although they were winning the war and not one foreign soldier had set foot on their soil, offered armistice to Britain with no requirement of reparations. The Rothschilds were anxious to make sure this didn’t happen as they were expecting to make far more money off this war, so they played another card they had up their sleeve.

Whilst the British were considering Germany’s offer, Rothschild agent Louis Brandeis sends a Zionist delegation from America to Britain to promise to bring America into the war on the side of the British, provided the British agree to give the land of Palestine to the Rothschilds. The Rothschilds wanted Palestine for the following reason: They had great business interests in the far east and desired their own state in that area along with their own military which they could use as an aggressor to any state that threatened those interests. The British subsequently agree to the deal for Palestine and the Zionists in London contact their counterparts in America and inform them of this fact. Suddenly all the major newspapers in America that up to that point had been pro-German turned on Germany running propaganda pieces such as: German soldiers were killing Red Cross Nurses; German soldiers were cutting off babies hands, etc, in order to manipulate the American public against the Germans.

This same year, President Woodrow Wilson, ran a re-election campaign under the slogan, “Re-Elect The Man Who Will Keep Your Sons Out Of The War.”
On December 12, Germany and her allies offer peace terms to end the war.

1917: As a result of Germany’s offer of peace the Rothschild war machine goes into overdrive in America, spreading propaganda which leads to President Wilson under the instructions of American Zionist leader and Supreme Court Justice, Louis Dembitz Brandeis, reneging on his promise to the electorate and taking America into the first world war on April 6. As per the Rothschild Zionist promise to the British, to take America into the war, they decide they want something in writing from the British to prove that they will uphold their side of the bargain. The British Foreign Secretary, Arthur James Balfour therefore drafts a letter which is commonly known as the, “Balfour Declaration,” which is reprinted below.

Foreign Office November 2nd, 1917

Dear Lord Rothschild,

I have much pleasure in conveying to you, on behalf of His Majesty’s Government, the following declaration of sympathy with Jewish Zionist aspirations which has been submitted to, and approved by, the Cabinet.

His Majesty’s Government view with favour the establishment in Palestine of a national home for the Jewish people, and will use their best endeavours to facilitate the achievement of this object, it being clearly understood that nothing shall be done which may prejudice the civil and religious rights of existing non-Jewish communities in Palestine, or the rights and political status enjoyed by Jews in any other country.

I should be grateful if you would bring this declaration to the knowledge of the Zionist Federation.

Yours sincerely,

Arthur James Balfour

The Rothschilds order the execution by the Bolsheviks they control, of Tsar Nicholas II and his entire family in Russia, even though the Tsar had already abdicated on March 2. This is both to get control of the country and an act of revenge for Tsar Alexander I blocking theirworld government plan in 1815 at the Congress Of Vienna, and Tsar Alexander II siding with President Abraham Lincoln in 1864. It is extremely important for them to slaughter the entire family including women and children in order to make good on the promise to do so made by Nathan Mayer Rothschild in 1815. It is designed to show the world what happens if you ever attempt to cross the Rothschilds. (NB. Anastasia escaped this attack)

U.S. Congressman Oscar Callaway informs Congress that J. P. Morgan is a Rothschild front and has taken control of the American media industry. He states, “In March, 1915, the J.P. Morgan interests, the steel, shipbuilding, and powder interest, and their subsidiary organizations, got together 12 men high up in the newspaper world and employed them to select the most influential newspapers in the United States and sufficient number of them to control generally the policy of the daily press… …They found it was only necessary to purchase the control of 25 of the greatest papers…An agreement was reached. The policy of the papers was bought, to be paid for by the month, an editor was furnished for each paper to properly supervise and edit information regarding the questions of preparedness, militarism, financial policies, and other things of national and international nature considered vital to the interests of the purchasers.”

1919: In January, Ashkenazi Jews, Karl Liebknecht and Rosa Luxemburg, are killed as they attempt to lead another Rothschild funded Communist coup, this time in Berlin, Germany. The Versailles peace conference is held to decide reparations that the Germans need to pay to the victors following the end of the first world war. A delegation of 117 Zionists headed up by Ashkenazi Jew, Bernard Baruch, bring up the subject of the promise of Palestine for them. At this point the Germans realised why America had turned on them and under whose influence, the Rothschilds.

The Germans, naturally, felt they had been betrayed by the Zionists. This is because, at the time the Rothschilds made their deal with Britain for Palestine, in exchange for bringing America into the war,Germany was the most friendly country in the world towards the Jews, indeed the German Emancipation Edict of 1822 guaranteed Jews in Germany all civil rights enjoyed by Germans. Also, Germany was the only country in Europe which did not place restrictions on Jews, even giving them refuge when they had to flee from Russia after their first attempted Communist coup failed there in 1905.

Nevertheless, the Rothschilds had held up their side of the bargain to spill the blood of millions of innocents and as a result, Palestine is confirmed as a Jewish homeland, and whilst its handover to the Rothschilds takes place it is to remain under the control of Britain as the Rothschilds control Britain. At that time less than one percent of the population of Palestine was Jewish. Interestingly, the host of the Versailles peace conference is its boss, Baron Edmond de Rothschild. The Versailles peace conference is also used as an attempt by the Rothschilds to set up a world government under the pretext of ending all wars (which they create). This was called the, “League of Nations.”Fortunately not enough countries accepted it and so it soon died.

On March 29th The Times of London reports on the Bolsheviks in Russia,”One of the curious features of the Bolshevist movement is the high percentage of non-Russian elements among its leaders. Of the twenty or thirty commissaries, or leaders, who provide the central machinery of the Bolshevist movement, not less than 75% were Jews.” It is reported that the Rothschilds were angry with the Russians because they were not prepared to allow them to form a central bank within their nation. They therefore gathered groups of Jewish spies and sent them into Russia to drum up a revolution for the benefit of the common man, which was actually a takeover of Russia by a Rothschild-controlled satanic elite. These Jewish spies were, in age-old deceptive Ashkenazi tradition, given Russian names, for example Trotsky was a member of the first group and his original name was Bronstein. These groups were sent to areas throughout Russia to incite riots and rebellion. The Jewish Post International Edition, week ending January 24th 1991, confirms Vladimir Lenin was Jewish. Lenin is also on record as having stated, “The establishment of a central bank is 90% of communizing a nation.” These Jewish, Rothschild funded Bolsheviks would go on in the course of history to slaughter 60 million Christians and Non-Jews in Soviet controlled territory. Indeed the author Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn in his work, “Gulag Archipelago, Vol 2,” affirms that Zionist Jews created and administered the organized Soviet concentration camp system in which these tens of millions of Christians and Non-Jews died. On page 79 of this book he even names the administrators of this the greatest killing machine in the history of the world. They are Aron Solts, Yakov Rappoport, Lazar Kogan, Matvei Berman, Genrikh Yagoda, and Naftaly Frenkel. All six are Zionist Jews. In 1970 Solzhenitsyn would be awarded the Nobel Peace Prize for literature.

N. M. Rothschild & Sons’ are given a permanent role to fix the world’s daily gold price. This takes place in the City of London offices, daily at 1100 hours, in the same room until 2004.

Did Adolf Hitler Serve the New World Order Agenda?

In my recent series of posts, I asserted that World War II really began in 1933, with the declaration of war on Germany by self-described “World Jewry” which had instigated a world wide economic boycott of Germany, just at the time when Hitler came to power, based upon atrocity propaganda. I then showed that this was denied and denounced by leading members of the largest organized Jewish group in Germany at the time as being untrue, and furthermore, that this campaign of lies was only going cause further antipathy towards Jews in Germany.  Their efforts, however, did not stop the economic and psychological warfare being waged against National Socialist Germany.

A excerpt of a memo from Hitler to the British government in 1933

hitler memo2

Hitler and his government openly sought peaceful resolution to the injustices of the Versailles Treaty, freedom from international tyranny, and peaceful coexistence with her neighbours, and was always working towards that end, while other entities, claiming to be interested in “freedom,  human rights and democracy” were on the one hand ‘openly’, and on the other hand ‘secretly’ conspiring to (again) foment hostilities that would lead to war. In the modern parlance it is called “bullying”, yet it Hitler who in spite of all of his efforts toward a real, just, and lasting peace, was portrayed as the “bully” and still is today.

In reality,  it was a group of wealthy, powerful and influential men lurking in the background in the UK, France and the USA who through their domestic sock puppet politicians, who were mocking, scoffing and taunting Hitler while inciting Poland to an aggressive stance and aggressive actions toward Germany, creating conflicts, with promises of military support.  When open military conflict erupted, it was NOT “an act of naked aggression by the Germans against innocent Poland” as we have been led to believe, but rather a reluctant but no longer avoidable response by the Germans.  But nor was Hitler’s response to Polish aggression ever intended to start a larger war.  It is now well documented that he had always sought a peaceful resolution of the issues with Poland, and a friendship with Britain, as I have covered in precious posts, and as one can see in my links section, as well as in the film “Hitler’s War? What the Historians Neglect to Mention“.

hitler memo3

What was the real motive of those who were hell bent on a second World War? Many in the half-truth movement rave on and on about the “New World Order” agenda, and falsely assert that Hitler was somehow a minion of those behind that agenda. Indeed, some blatantly assert that the “NWO” is a “German Death Cult” and sadly, many alleged “truth seekers” have bought into this deliberate disinformation, and they repeat ad nauseum like screaming parrots, without ever doing any independent research of their own.  The fact is, however, Hitler and National Socialism opposed and was the very antithesis of the NWO “globalist” agenda.

The brilliant financial economic policies of Hitler and the NS, and the economic miracle that resulted,  not only enraged the Bankers, but made Germany the envy of her neighbours,  and showed that it was possible to have a prosperous nation without gold and without International Bankster Gangsters and their central banking system, and usury. Moreover, it gave Germany true independence, freedom and real sovereignty! And as I have stated before, far from being the ruthless and cruel dictatorship that we have also been falsely led to believe, the political system of the NS could best be described as “government of the people, by the people and for the people” (the very thing that America allegedly stands for, but does not)  with a leader at the helm who represented the German people’s interests and their welfare, and who could not be bought and paid for, and did NOT represent “globalist” interests.

It was a “third way” of governance that was neither “right” nor “left” on the political scale, and which sought to be inclusive, but only as far as the Germans themselves were concerned.  In other words “Germany and Germans first!” with a truly national community of the German people (Volksgemeinschaft), with their shared cultural heritage, interests and concerns, working for their own betterment collectively, through their individual labours, and in a way that brought industry and labour together, for the common good, rather engaging in class warfare, to their own destruction. It also promoted self-sufficiency, individually, locally and nationally. Thus, and in combination with her own currency and central bank, Germany was freed from unbridled-capitalism, international market speculation and usury on the one hand,  and from the threat of Bolshevik-Marxism, both of which result in exploitation and slavery, loss of sovereignty and inevitably, war!  Again, spend some time going through my previous posts and my extensive link section, do your own research, and make up your own mind!

hitler memo4

To those who claim to be “fighting the New World Order” I will give you the following for your consideration.  This 1940 article demonstrates clearly that the war which was declared by self-described “International Jewry” did not stop after 1933, but continued unabated until they had finally succeeded in fomenting a military conflict which rapidly engulfed the whole world, for their benefit and their “New World Order” agenda.

So, who did want a “New World Order” and whose agenda was it? Who does this agenda serve? Whose agenda did World War II serve?  

Excerpt from an article entitled

“New World Order Pledged to Jews,” in the New York Times (1940)

“In the first public declaration on the Jewish question since the outbreak of the war, Arthur Greenwood, member without portfolio in the British War Cabinet, assured the Jews of the United States that when victory was achieved an effort would be made to found a New World Order based on the ideals of ‘justice and peace.’”

1940 nwo for jews

Did Adolf Hitler serve the New World Order Agenda?  

The answer is clearly, NO HE DID NOT! However, what does serve the NWO agenda are the endless lies and the “bogeyman” image being promulgated and promoted by disinfo agents in the so-called “truth movement” who claim to be “fighting the New World Order agenda” !

Ask yourself, “who benefits” from the perpetuation of these lies?

In closing, I will add that, while military operations were (officially) halted in 1945 and victory declared by the ALL LIES, the war against Hitler, against Germany and against the Germans did NOT end, but continues unabated to this day. Germany is still, for all intents and purposes, an occupied and foreign controlled nation, and is still being held for ransom in an extortion racket which had it’s roots in 1933.   We are still waiting for “justice and peace” which obviously did NOT come out of World War II as advertised.

Only the truth will set us free!

Child Sacrifices tied to Vatican, Mafia, Canadian PM Stephen Harper

Quebec Archbishop Gérald Cyprien Lacroix formally inducted as a cardinal by Pope Francis at St. Peter's Basilica in Rome on Feb. 22 (Getty Images)

Ottawa police, Interpol operatives, journalists in Rome and members of the Italian Chamber of Deputies, European Parliament and Jesuit Order, plus investigators for the International Common Law Court in Brussels have contributed to this article.
Two children were raped and killed as part of Pope Francis’Feb.22 <ahref=”http: http://www.international.gc.ca=”&#8221; media=”” aff=”” newscommuniques=”” 2014=”” 02=”” 21a.aspx?lang=”eng”” title=”Cardinal inauguration of Quebec Archbishop Gerald Lacroix” target=”_blank”>Cardinal inauguration of Quebec Archbishop Gerald Lacroix according to a report filed yesterday at the International Common Law Court of Justice in Brussels. Eyewitnesses claimed Cardinal Lacroix, Catholic Jesuit Superior General Adolfo Pachon and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s senior cabinet minister Denis Lebel participated in the rape and human sacrifice of a five or six year-old boy and a small girl as explained in this video.
The killings were said to take place after midnight in the basement chambers of Jesuit Headquarters next to the Church San Lorenzo Piscibus in Rome. The Italian mafia Ndrangheta supplied children for these Ninth Circle Satanic Child Sacrifices through an office at the Vatican according to documents filed at the ICLCJ Court.

“We received a report that the children were murdered in the Catholic Jesuit headquarters” stated Kevin Annett of the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State which assisted prosecution for the ICLCJ Court.” One source said a boy was sacrificed around midnight in the presence of Cardinal Lacroix and Denis Lebel. Evidently later that evening ‘the top guy’ killed a small girl. By that we assume he meant Jesuit Superior Adolfo Pachon.”
“Cardinal Lacroix, Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper, Denis Lebel, the Ninth Circle and it’s mafia arm Ndrangheta are already under investigation for the planned sacrifice of two children in Westmount Quebec on Aug. 15 and the Sept. 28 death of Head of Ottawa’s Human Trafficking Division Kal Ghadban, plus were considered prime suspects in the October 22 shooting of soldier Nathan Cirillo in Canada’s capital,” said Annett. “Our sources come from the Ottawa police, Interpol operatives, journalists in Rome and members of the Italian Chamber of Deputies, European Parliament and Jesuit Order in Rome.”
In Quebec last Aug. Ninth Circle Satanic Child Sacrifice Cult members appeared to be preparing for human sacrifices of two children when they were arrested by deputies from the ICLCJ Court and Montreal police including the now-deceased Head of Ottawa’s Human Trafficking Division Kal Ghadban. Evidence collected at the scene included blood samples from a stone altar, metallic torture devices, ceremonial swords and sophisticated film equipment containing child pornography. One of the suspects later confessed that the two children to be killed were held in a special facility at McGill University in Montreal. The informant was granted protective custody and flown to the ICLCJ Court in Brussels.
Last Sept. evidence from recent pedophilia and murder cases of the ICLCJ Court help EuropeanINTERPOL police arrest 1027 suspected Ndrangheta mafia and Ninth Circle Satanic Child Sacrifice Cult members from six countries. There were 30 Romanian children targeted for human sacrifice who were rescued and over 2 tons of drugs seized. European INTERPOL police ended their nine-day sting Sept 28.
The INTERPOL arrests and Canadian and Italy child sacrifices received little or no media attention in Canada or the US, but an ITCCS release stated, “The government’s talk of new police powers and the media hysteria that followed Cirillo’s shooting were an obvious distraction from this news of Lebel and Lacroix participating in child sacrifices that could easily topple the Harper government. Denis Lebel is crucial right now in Harper’s upcoming election hopes to win Quebec for his party.”
Influence of the Vatican and Canadian government-directed Ndrangheta appeared to play into not only the Canadian and Italian Ninth Circle child sacrifices, but the recent deaths of two Canadian policemen. “Our Unit Commander in Brussels believes that the head of Ottawa’s Human Trafficking Division Kal Ghadban was killed due to his willingness to investigate Ninth Circle rituals in Canada. On Monday, Oct. 20 ITCCS Directors received evidence of the Feb. child sacrifices in Rome involving Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s senior cabinet minister Denis Lebel and Quebec Archbishop-now-Cardinal Gerald Lacroix. The staged killing of policeman Nathan Cirillo occurred two days later.
“Ultimately this is all about covering for the big money, which means the Italian criminal syndicate Ndrangheta that provides children for Ninth Circle rituals” stated Annett. “We suspect a Ndrangheta member killed Ottawa police inspector Kal Ghadban on September 28 after he’d helped stop the Montreal child sacrifices in August. Apparently, Ghadban knew of Denis Lebel’s and Gerald Lacroix’s involvement in the Ninth Circle ritual and he planned to bring charges against both men. To me the death of Ghabdanconfirms that federal politicians in Canada are linked to the Catholic Ninth Circle Satanic Child Sacrifice Cult and couldn’t have an honest cop tied to ITCCS working to expose their crimes.”

The ICLCJ Court was considering Ninth Circle Satanic Child Sacrifice Cult connections to Pope Francis, food giant Cargill, Sinclair Oil, Europe’s convicted mafia money-laundering bank HSBC, Cameco Uranium corporation and the criminal syndicate Ndrangheta. An ITCCS press release stated: “Big money” includes as well Minister Lebel’s ties to those global resource companies affected by his decisions as federal Transport and Infrastructure minister: companies like Power Corporation, Cargill, Sinclair Oil and others whose officers have been named as participants in child trafficking and Ninth Circle child sacrifice rites.”
“The Rome child sacrifices happened in the San Lorenzo Jesuit-run International Youth Center on the same day Lacroix was inaugurated a Cardinal by Pope Francis” claimed the eyewitness informant to the event. “And that wasn’t the first child sacrifice at San Lorenzo. February 21 and 22 are the ancient Roman festivals of Feralia and Terminalia when animals and children are sacrificed in memory of the dead.”

Children were regularly kidnapped, raped, tortured and murdered by the Vatican-directed Ninth Circle Satanic Child Sacrifice Cult according to over 60 eyewitnesses who since 2011, have testified before the ICLCJ Court. Cardinal Lacroix was a member of Catholic Archbishop Bernard Fellay’s notorious St. Pius X Society.

Children killed, dumped in ocean by top Canadian clergy, politicians?

Protest for missing native children ITCCS imagesThe organized abduction, exploitation, torture and murder of numerous native women and children appears to exist on Canada’s west coast. Funded by the drug trade, evidently this system supplies aboriginal victims under the paid collusion of RCMP officers, Vancouver police, lawyers, clergy, doctors, politicians, social workers, coroners, judiciary, military, media and officials in the highest levels of the Canadian government and Roman Catholic, Anglican and United Church of Canada. . . ITCCS Memorandum Feb. 2 2011Native children are being kidnapped, placed in private yachts, abused, killed and their bodies taken outside Canada’s twelve mile territorial limit to be disposed of in the ocean by prominent Catholic clergy, businessmen, judiciary, military and politicians of the Satanic Ninth Circle Child Sacrifice Cult according to a former employee of a Vancouver Catholic Cathedral. This week the eyewitness to child murders shared his evidence with the International Common Law Court of Justice in Brussels. Evidently for years members of the west coast wing of the Ninth Circle Cult, known as the Twelve Mile Club, have moored their expensive boats in West Vancouver without fear of investigation or prosecution for their alleged crimes against hundreds of missing aboriginal women and children.

“The Vancouver police and RCMP appear heavily implicated in child trafficking and protecting these sick and wealthy men” Pastor Kevin Annett said today in an exclusive interview. Annett of the<ahref=”http: http://www.itccs.org”=”&#8221; title=”International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State” target=”_blank”>International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State, assisted in investigation for the ICLCJ Court. “This latest eyewitness report of the Twelve Mile Club confirms what I’ve been told for many years as a street minister in Vancouver. The city is a major center for child trafficking and the human Snuff Film industry (filming of actual murders for profit). Their blatant murder of children has been covered up and shows how wide their crimes extend, likely all the way to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper.”

The ICLCJ Court recently opened an investigation on members of the Twelve Mile Club, Satanic Ninth Circle Child Sacrifice Cult and their Vatican Italian mafia arm Ndrangheta. There appeared to be connections to Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s senior cabinet minister Denis Lebel’s and Quebec Cardinal Gerald Lacroix’s alleged Feb. 22 2014 participation in the human sacrifice in Rome of a small boy and girl; the planned sacrifice of two children in Westmount Quebec on Aug. 15 where Ninth Circle cult members were arrested; the Sept. 28 death of Head of Ottawa’s Human Trafficking Division Kal Ghadban who assisted in the Quebec arrests and the October 22 shooting of soldier Nathan Cirillo in Canada’s capital.

“We suspect a member of the Vatican mafia Ndrangheta killed Ottawa police inspector Kal Ghadban on September 28 after he’d helped stop Ninth Circle Montreal child sacrifices in August” said Annett. “Apparently, Ghadban knew of Denis Lebel’s and Gerald Lacroix’s involvement in the Ninth Circle child sacrifices in Rome and he planned to bring charges against both men. To me the death of Ghabdan confirms that federal politicians in Canada are linked to the Catholic Ninth Circle Satanic Child Sacrifice Cult and Twelve Mile Club. Harper’s government couldn’t have an honest cop tied to ITCCS working to expose their crimes.”

The witness, a former employee of the Holy Rosary Catholic Cathedral in Vancouver, attended meetings during 2007 and 2008 where former Archbishop Raymond Roussin and senior parish priest Glen Dion planned with church lawyers, the cover-up of their own involvement in the Twelve Mile Club.

According to the witness, Roussin, Dion and Canadian Prime Minister Stephen Harper’s senior cabinet minister Denis Lebel were members of the Twelve Mile Club, along with Archbishop Gerald Lacroix, Chief Justice of the BC Provincial Court Hugh Stansfield, Brian Thorpe, United Church of Canada legal counsel Jon Jessiman, United Church Moderator Gary Paterson, Justice William Esson,Terrance Warren of the British Columbia Supreme Court and other Catholic and United Church clergy and businessmen. Another Twelve Mile High Club member, former Chief Justice of the BC Provincial Court Hugh Stansfield, suddenly died in May, 2009 after being named as a suspected child rapist.

In Jan 2009 Archbishop Roussin suddenly resigned his position due to a nervous breakdown. The eyewitness stated, “At the last meeting I attended before he retired in the spring of 2008, his Excellency was very worried about the protests at the Cathedral by the Indians and Kevin Annett’s group. He was afraid that all the reporters covering these protests would discover the Twelve Mile Club and all the children who had gone missing. It all became too much for him.

“Being a francophone too, Archbishop Roussin was close friends with Ninth Circle member Archbishop Gerald Lacroix. They wrote a book together, they paired up during voting at the CCCB (Canadian Conference of Catholic Bishops). You don’t get to become an Archbishop unless you know how to keep each other’s secrets. How much more of a connection do they need?”

Last year Prime Minister Harper was issued an arrest warrant by the ICLCJ Court for his role in concealing the trafficking and killing of over 50,000 missing native Canadian children in 80 mainly Catholic-owned residential schools. Brian Thorpe, United Church of Canada legal counsel Jon Jessiman and United Church Moderator Gary Paterson were also issued arrest warrants for their role in the cover-up. Kevin Annett stated, “Not only do Catholic leaders appear to be involved, but more progressive liberals like Twelve Mile Club members Thorpe, Jessiman and Paterson.”

The first ICLCJ jury trial on the 50,000 missing native children concluded in Feb. 2013 with guilty verdicts on 30 global elites. Arrest warrants were handed out on prominent figures in the US, UK, Canada and Vatican including Pope Ratzinger and Queen Elizabeth. A few days later Pope Ratzinger resigned from his office. Queen Elizabeth and Prince Phillip were found guilty in the Oct. 10 1964 disappearance of ten children from the BC Kamloops native residential school. Their parents haven’t seen them since.

Some missing Canadian native children were thought to rest in 32 mass grave sites discovered since 2008 on native residential school grounds across Canada. ITCCS’s continuous requests for excavation of the child mass grave sites have been turned down by the Canadian government, British Crown and the Catholic, Anglican, Lutheran and United Church of Canada churches.

Threats to the six ICLCJ Court judges, 58 jury members, ITCCS personnel, Annett and whistle blowers have increased as over 60 eyewitnesses to this ritualized child torture and murder have come forth to testify. As of Nov. 2014 there were 16 private citizens who had been killed, died of mysterious causes, or incarcerated in jail or a mental institution without being charged with a crime – all just prior to their testimony before the ICLCJ Court.

Global Elite Satanic Cult said to schedule child sacrifice, judges issue arrest warrants

gty_queen_elizabeth_ss_2013_lpl_130313_sshVivian Cunningham picYesterday five judges of the International Common Law Court of Justice in Brussels issued arrest warrants after testimony that the Ninth Circle Satanic Child Sacrifice Cult might soon murder a child. Evidently the murder rite was scheduled for Aug 15 2014 in the subterranean vault beneath Marie-Reine-du-Monde Roman Catholic Cathedral in Montreal, Canada. This week’s eyewitness testimony revealed that the Catholic Cathedral has been the scene of other Ninth Circle Satanic Cult murders. However according to a ICLCJ Prosecutor’s Press Release, “The most recent gatherings of the Ninth Circle occurred in the crypt of Caernarfon Castle in Wales.”

Witnesses claimed they as children were with two of the international trial’s primary defendants at ceremonies where other children were killed. At least eight witnesses put names to this Ninth Circle Satanic Child Sacrifice Cult. Identified were British, Dutch and Belgian royal family members, Pope Francis, former Pope Ratzinger, Archbishop of Canterbury Justin Welby, two British High Court Judges, a Canadian Catholic bishop and senior government ministers in Belgium and England.

“I was awakened after midnight by a call from Brussels” said Kevin Annett, special assistant to the ICLCJ Prosecutor. “They alerted me to the Prosecution’s demand that special deputies be immediately sworn and prepared to take action to stop the Ninth Circle’s murder of children. I’ve instructed all 39 of the International Tribunal into Crimes of Church and State’s local chartered groups to do exactly that. Children are dying horribly as we speak. Protecting those children will be the first job of our trained sheriffs. They are charged with detaining and enforcing standing arrest warrants against criminals like former Pope Joseph Ratzinger and Queen Elizabeth. We can only protect our children by tracking down and stopping those who are raping and killing them, starting with the sick monsters known to be in the Ninth Circle Satanic Child Sacrifice Cult.”

Ninth Circle Satanic crimes against children appeared to be worldwide. Dutch therapist Toos Nijenhuis claimed that as a child she was forced to witness murders of children that involved former Pope Ratzinger, Dutch Catholic Cardinal Alfrink and Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands. “I saw the formerPope Joseph Ratzinger murder a little girl″ another witness confirmed. “It was at a French chateau in the fall of 1987. It was ugly, horrible and didn’t happen just once. Ratzinger, Alfrink and Bernhard were some of the more prominent men who took part.” http://youtu.be/-A1o1Egi20c

Canadian Irene Favel testified at the 2013 ICLCJ Court trial on Ninth Circle global elites where Pope Ratzinger resigned after his guilty verdict. Favel saw a Catholic priest burn a baby alive in a furnace at the Catholic Indian residential school in Muscowequan Saskatchewan. “All you could hear was this little cry, like “Uuh!”, and that was it. You could smell that flesh cooking.”  www.hiddennolonger.com

Queen Elizabeth was also convicted at the 2013 ICLCJ Brussels trial. The Queen and Prince Phillip were found guilty in the disappearance of ten native children last seen leaving for a picnic with the Royal couple from the Kamloops Residential School in British Columbia. This week British soldier Vivian Cunningham remained drugged and institutionalized against his will for daring to ask his superiors about Queen Elizabeth’s outstanding arrest warrant. Cunningham was incarcerated at the St. George’s Hospital in Stafford England. Your concerns could be voiced by phoning 44 017852 57888 or speaking to Cunningham’s superior, Captain Murrell phone 44 079096 86198.

The UK began waking up to satanic crime through the British celebrity Jimmy Saville child sex abuse case. One London court proceeding unveiled that Dutch intelligence officers trafficked a UK victim to Amsterdam to be abused by pedophiles including convicted child killer Sidney Cooke. The child victim was also made to film Cooke killing another boy in a children’s’ residential school on the UK Island of Jersey. Jersey was under the sole ownership and control of Queen Elizabeth. This video is Bill Maloney’s Pie’n’Mash Films documentary about Jersey entitled “Sun, Sea and Satan.” https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lq6lJsBz9UY

Before his death Jimmy Saville spent regular time on Jersey. Satanism was riddled throughout Saville’s child sex abuse scandal that involved hundreds of child victims. Witnesses claimed that as children they were taken to drug-fueled sex parties run by European government authorities. According to the Jan.12 UK Sunday Express, “It wasn’t just politicians, there were also a number of celebrities who seemed to have a lot of good links to MPs and powerful businessmen.”

In the US Catholic Father Gerald Robinson, convicted for the 1984 Black Mass murder of Sister Margaret Pahl, based his unusual 2013 appeal on evidence that up to 24 priests participated with him in that Satanic human sacrifice rite. Veterans Today reporter Gordon Duff contended that the 24 priests “continue to practice Satanism within the church that include assaults, rapes and murders. To this day those that survive continue to do so.” http://www.veteranstoday.com/2013/01/14/denial-of-truth-mind-control-and-satanism-in-america/

Child sacrifices also appeared to be regular events in satanic cults other than the Ninth Circle. Jenny Hill of Garden Grove California claimed to have witnessed a child sacrifice in a Satanic cult ceremony. In her biography, “Twenty-Two Faces” (Tate Publishing: Oklahoma, 2012) she discussed the murder of another six year-old child. In this video Hill explained her feelings about the murder on June 21 1965 Summer Solstice. http://www.youtube.com/wat?v=F626Lsrdwg4

At least two Black Mass child sacrifice rites were said to have taken place at Catholic headquarters in Rome. At the tender age of 12 “Svali” of San Diego County claimed she was brought to catacombs beneath the Vatican to witness the sacrifice of a three year-old drugged boy. In this video her interviewer said that 24 years prior a “Maria” told him she witnessed another satanic murder rite in the same Vatican Catacombs. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZccxuKjXApA

ICLCJ court proceedings in Brussels were estimated to take at least a year due to the large amount of evidence and victims who have come forward since the Ninth Circle trial was announced earlier this year. The court was formed to protect citizens when their own government was unable, or unwilling, to provide safety for them. To meet the demand for Common Law Peace Officers the ICLCJ has put together in 13 countries, Direct Action Unit Training Programs. If interested, you can contact them at: itccscentral@gmail.com

EU Rules Denial of Genocide is Okay as Long as It’s Not the Jew Genocide

Andrew Anglin
Daily Stormer
October 19, 2015

Dogu Perincek:
Dogu Perincek: “Armenian genocide is a great international lie” – that’s cool.

Once again the Jews assert their position as the chosen ones of God, as only their alleged genocide cannot be questioned.

Even while there exists no physical evidence whatsoever that even a single Jew was ever gassed in Hitler’s Germany, and there are most assuredly mass graves from the Armenian genocide.

Reality doesn’t matter though. What matters is protecting Jews. That’s what the word “democracy” means.

AFP:

The European Court of Human Rights ruled on Thursday that a Turkish politician should not have been prosecuted for denying that the mass killing of Armenians by Ottoman Turkey in 1915 was a genocide.

In a landmark free speech ruling, the ECHR judges ruled by 10 votes to seven that Dogu Perincek, chairman of Turkey’s Patriotic Party, should never have been convicted of racial discrimination by a Swiss court for saying that the “Armenian genocide is a great international lie”.

The ECHR ruled Perincek’s 2007 conviction and fining over the remark was an infringement on his right to free speech.

In its judgement, the court said Perincek’s statements related to an issue of “public interest and did not amount to a call for hatred or intolerance… and could not be regarded as affecting the dignity of the members of the Armenian community to the point of requiring a criminal law response”.

The court made a clear distinction with Holocaust denial, whose specific history meant it could always be “seen as a form of incitement to racial hatred” in certain countries.

Its judges had earlier that the historical facts of the Holocaust,“such as the existence of gas chambers” were “considered clearly established by an international jurisdiction”.

Yeah okay. Where’s the evidence? No autopsy of a gassed Jew, no documented orders of Jews to be gassed, no physical evidence of a homicidal gas chamber having existed at any of the camps, no mass graves of gassed Jews – zero evidence, at all.

But the Armenian genocide definitely happened. Mass graves existed, and have been dug up, and they were all murdered – they didn’t die of disease and starvation like the Jews in the camps (who the Nazis did their best to keep alive after the allies bombed the supply lines).

Actual mass grave.
Actual mass grave.
They are still digging up bones. While the Jews say it would be against their religion to check the ground in Poland for these millions of bodies they claim are buried there.
They are still digging up bones. While the Jews say it would be against their religion to check the ground in Poland for these millions of bodies they claim are buried there.

The Collapse of the Hoax

It is extremely important we crush this idiot Jew hoax. We must push the issue every chance we get.

It is 100% fact that there is no physical evidence of anyone getting gassed. The entire Holocaust fable is based on massively conflicting “eye-witness testimony” from lying Jews.

I tell everyone that when you debate this topic on the internet, do not over complicate it. The believers are the one making the outrageous claim of six million gassed Jews magically disappearing, so the burden of proof is on them.

Whenever anyone confirms the Holocaust, just ask them for physical evidence that it happened. Say you want a link to some for of recorded documentation based on something other than eye-witness testimony. They will, inevitably, post pictures of starved bodies being bulldozed by the allies.

Point out that people starving to death has no relationship to the alleged existence of gas chambers. Then watch them squirm.

Repeat, repeat, repeat. Flood the tubes with Holo denialism, make sure everyone is exposed to it. Our numbers are growing, rapidly. Once the hoax collapses, we’ve got a straight shot to stopping these kikes.

Holocaust Blackmail Over Second and Third Generation Trauma

Lasha Darkmoon – October 31, 2015

It all boils down to this: Jews are demanding never-ending financial reparations from Germany for inherited “Holocaust trauma”. How much longer will Germany be a cash cow for the Jews? Will the remote descendants of today’s “Holocaust survivors” still be demanding money from Germany 100 years from now? How much longer is this racket going to go on?

COMPENSATION! COMPENSATION! WE DEMAND COMPENSATION!”
COMPENSATION! COMPENSATION! WE DEMAND COMPENSATION!”

“Jewish activists in Scotland,” the Guardian reports, “have started a campaign to support the grandchildren of Holocaust survivors across the world, saying the trauma of the extermination camps continues to haunt the descendants of those who suffered there.”

Dan Glass, 29, from London, said he heard constant tales of the Holocaust as he grew up, which have deeply affected him into adulthood:

“All four of my grandparents narrowly avoided the gas chambers in Auschwitz and countless of their friends met with this fate. For my father it was a daily conversation in my teens and early 20s and even though I very profoundly understood his pain, one day I had to say to him, ‘Dad, I can’t talk about this anymore.’ My father had a whole wall of books on the subject of the Holocaust – it was all he wanted to talk about, but it was so harrowing for me.”

“All my dad talked about to me was the Holocaust! It was so harrowing for me! “
“All my dad talked about to me was the Holocaust!
It was so harrowing for me! “

Let’s scrutinize Mr Glass’s first point and see if it makes any sense. Note his claim that all four of his grandparents “narrowly avoided the gas chambers.” Let’s give Mr Glass the benefit of the doubt. Let’s not ask him any embarrassing questions, such as: (1) “Can you show me a single authentic gas chamber anywhere in the world?” Or (2):  “Can you explain how the Pyramids, built more than 2000 years before the birth of Christ, are still standing as proof that they were once built, whereas there is not a single authentic Holocaust gas chamber in existence today as proof that gas chambers ever existed?” Or (3):  “Are you aware that the gas chamber at Auschwitz, which you claim your grandparents narrowly escaped, is a fake copy built after the war?”

We will spare Mr Glass these acutely embarrassing questions.

Instead, we will concentrate on another important point which appears to have escaped Mr Glass’s attention completely. It is not clear how Mr Glass can claim to have been traumatized by an event that ALMOST occurred to his four grandparents over 70 years ago. He needs to explain this, just as you and I would need to explain how we had been traumatized by an automobile accident that never took place in which our grandparents were ALMOST killed by a car as they were crossing the road.

If you happen to be a young woman anxious to make a bit of easy money, I don’t think you would have a leg to stand on if you were to claim that you were seriously traumatized by reading your grandmother’s diary in which she writes: “I was almost raped at a party in 1943.” Even if your granny had been actually raped, you wouldn’t stand a chance of receiving a penny in compensation for this historical tragedy. So what chance do you have of cashing in on your granny’s troubles if all you can claim is that the was ALMOST raped?

Not much, in my honest opinion.

Still, Mr Glass has that quality we call “chutzpah”, and he is hoping that Germany will buy his story and award him a handsome allowance for life on the strength of his grandparents’ alleged near-death experiences over 70 years ago.

 §

Don Glass, a British Jew—pictured here—began interviewing the children and grandchildren of other Holocaust survivors, initially for an academic thesis. He began with the hypothesis that the world was swarming with people just like himself, all traumatized by events that almost took place to remote ancestors 70 years ago.  Sure enough, his suspicions were confirmed. Almost every Jew he spoke to claimed to be pretty traumatized, and none of them were at all averse to receiving financial compensation from Germany for their dreadful sufferings.  He soon realized, theGuardian tells us, that “he was not alone in being scarred by the traumatic pasts of his relatives.”

“I have been privileged to hear so many stories from young people who should now be able to live with joy – but their lives are damaged and they weren’t even there,” Glass points out gloomily.

Glass adds that other grandchildren of survivors have experienced clinical depression, anxiety, addiction and eating disorders, which they blame on the impact of their families constantly retelling stories of the horrific events their relatives endured.

A young woman from London told Glass of how her grandmother, who was in the Dutch resistance, avoided starvation at times by digging up flower bulbs and sucking out the nutrients. The woman later developed anorexia and believes it was related to the war stories that had been passed down the line and never processed.

According to all these accounts, gathered almost exclusively by Jews claiming to be traumatized and transmitted to the Guardian  newspaper:

“Trauma research about the impact of the Holocaust on subsequent generations varies; some studies conclude there is no effect of trauma two generations on, while others claim that breast milk of survivors was affected by stress hormones that impacted on the physiology of the next generation.”

620x376xbreastfeeding-ap_0_1_0.jpg.pagespeed.ic.A4TmajVJOm

‘Our babies are being poisoned by our breast milk because of stress hormones due to the Holocaust! We demand compensation from Germany for inherited trauma!’

How strange. Their babies are being poisoned by their breast milk. The obvious solution to that problem is to give up breastfeeding, right? But no, they refuse to do that, apparently determined to transmit stress hormones to their children in perpetuity. It really does defy comprehension.

Jewish (and non-Jewish?) workers in the field of epigenetics are now claiming that “the intergenerational effects of the Holocaust are very pronounced and that the atrocities altered the DNA of victims’ descendants, so that they have different stress hormone profiles to their peers.”

Psychologist Ruth Barnett, whose Jewish father fled Germany for Shanghai, narrowly escaping the Holocaust, says she has witnessed inherited trauma in some of her clients. “Constantly talking about events like the gas chambers to grandchildren is a way that traumatised people try to get rid of it – by sicking it up. But unless it is processed properly, they make even more anxiety for themselves and other generations.”

Mr Glass adds grimly:

“We should be releasing these old wounds to something beautiful rather than staying paralysed in memory and fear. Until then we cannot properly celebrate their lives or any kind of victory.”

“We should be releasing these old wounds . . . “ Don Glass as a traumatized Holocaust survivor child victim (far right), enjoying tea and cake with his traumatized Jewish family in London.
“We should be releasing these old wounds . . . “

“What would our grandparents have felt,” Don Glass added, “if they had known we have had to carry their torment through generations? Wouldn’t they have wanted us to find the peace that was robbed from them? Wouldn’t they want us whole and living lives that they lost? I realised that if they could speak to us beyond the grave many would have agreed the mourning has to stop and be replaced with something more constructive.” (See here)

Let’s cut to the chase. It all boils down to this: Jews are demanding never-ending financial reparations from Germany for inherited “Holocaust trauma”. How much longer will Germany be a cash cow for the Jews? Will the remote descendants of today’s “Holocaust survivors” still be demanding money from Germany 100 years from now? How much longer is this racket going to go on?

Here is Holocaust revisionist scholar Carlos W. Porter :

“We call it the ‘Hoaxoco$t’ because it is a hoax, and it costs plenty. In addition to the jillions of dollars already paid out, directly or indirectly, in cash, goods, and services to Hoaxoco$t “survivors” and the racketeer state of Israel—with new, improved Hoaxoco$t survivor rip-offs, shake-downs, protection rackets, extortion rackets, blackmail schemes, and related swindles being invented and refined almost every week—one would need a computer to calculate the number of unprovoked air strikes, invasions, bombings, burnings, sinkings, shellings, confiscations, expulsions, tortures, book-burnings, beatings, arrests and detentions, both with and without trial, all caused by the insane delusion that we are fighting Hitler every five seconds, in the need to prevent yet another Hoaxoco$t from occurring for the umpteenth time.”

Needless to say, Carlos Porter could end up in prison for saying this; or, if things get any worse, he could one day face a firing squad for daring to speak out in this candid way against Holocaust blackmail.

Fluent in German, French, Italian, Spanish and Portuguese, the erudite Porter renounced his American citizenship in 1984 and relocated to Belgium with his wife and children. There he was to write “Not Guilty at Nuremberg.”  (See also here). This should be required reading for anyone interested in Holocaust studies. Porter demonstrates with meticulous scholarship in this book that most of the American interrogators at Nuremberg had been Jews, and that they had extracted forced confessions from their German prisoners of war by the most horrendous tortures, including the crushing of their testicles. (See my notes on this topic in Torture and Testicle Crushing at Nuremberg).

In a private email to me (July 28, 2015 at 9:55 pm), Porter confirmed that much of the evidence for the alleged genocide of 6 million Jews at the hands of  the Third Reich had been gathered by torture and that the torturers were mostly Jewish:

“You can be absolutely CERTAIN,” Carlos Porter said, “that nearly ALL the interrogators and interpreters in ALL the trials were Jewish, because the Americans stamped out the German language from all American schools during WWI, so German Jewish refugees were almost the only competent people they had. Of course, other “German-Americans” could not be trusted not to be “Nazis”, so they were stuck with the German Jews.

That there was a great deal of mistreatment and torture in the minor trials is absolutely certain. I reproduced a couple of accounts of torture at the Dachau trials in “War Crimes Trials and Other Essays”. But I’m sure it’s only the tip of the iceberg. Minor personnel could be tortured with impunity, and 99% of them would be afraid even to mention it. It would be hard to get away with torturing somebody like Goering though.

There’s a lot of literature on the subject, more all the time. The Brits appear to have been surprisingly enthusiastic torturers, whether Jewish or not.”

Porter is not alone in his claim that Jews featured prominently in the ranks of the torturers in post-war Germany. On Sept. 25, 1945, Thomas Dodd, who was the second in command on the American prosecution team at Nuremberg, made the following observation in which he claimed that three out of four interrogators at Nuremberg were Jewish:

“You know how I have despised anti-Semitism,” he said. “You know how strongly I feel toward those who preach intolerance of any kind. With that knowledge, you will understand when I tell you that this staff is about seventy-five percent Jewish.”

The Presiding Judge at Nuremberg was also, coincidently, a Jew. His name was A.H. Rosenfeld and he was a colonel in the American army. Col. Rosenfeld cheerfully admitted to torturing German prisoners of war as a matter of policy. “We couldn’t have made those birds talk otherwise,” he remarked cynically. “It was a trick, and it worked like a charm.”

According to American Judge Edward L. Van Roden, testifying in American Atrocities in Germany, out of 139 cases of alleged German “war criminals” investigated by his commission for war crimes, ”137 of these Germans were tortured by having their testicles crushed.” 

In a recent private email to me, in response to some of my queries about torture at Nuremberg, Thomas Goodrich, acclaimed author of Hellstorm : The Death of Nazi Germany (1944-1947), mentioned the names of four well-known Jews in the American zone whom he identified as torturer-inquisitors: Harry Thon, William Perl, AH Rosenfeld, and Shlomo Morel.

This last-named individual, Shlomo Morel, was a particularly nasty piece of work whom Goodrich describes as follows:

“a vicious monster who drowned men and women in outdoor latrines, who made them eat excrement, who personally beat captives to death, and who forced women to kiss and make love with disinterred corpses.”

The next time you are inclined to shed tears for contemporary Holocaust survivors allegedly traumatized by drinking the poisoned breast milk of their Jewish mothers, spare a tear for the German prisoners of war  who were drowned in outdoor latrines and forced to have sex with dug-up corpses.

Jew Mad? Times of Israel Complains About American Neo-Nazis Supporting Bibi’s Pro-Hitler Stance

Andrew Anglin
Daily Stormer
October 25, 2015

Recently, Bibi Netanyahu came out and endorse Holocaust revisionism, claiming that Hitler had no plan to kill Jews, and that Arabs directed him to do so. Granted, he still claims that the hoax is real, but this is revisionism nonetheless, as he blames the Grand Mufti, which is not the position of any mainstream holo-historian.

Actually, I have no idea where he is claiming to have gotten this theory from. He did not cite a source regarding his claim that the Mufti was the puppeteer of Hitler. I think he just made it up. But this was not off the cuff, it was in a written speech he delivered to a major Zionist group.

Here on DS, I noted that the idea of Hitler being a puppet of Moslems is goofy and dumb, Bibi was correct in his statement that Hitler had no plan to kill Jews, and did cite sources, including the Transfer Agreement and the Madagascar Plan.

The Times of Israel got mad:

An American neo-Nazi website has backed comments made by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu earlier this week that Adolf Hitler had never planned to systematically murder the Jews of Europe until it was suggested by the leading Muslim cleric in Jerusalem, open Nazi sympathizer Grand Mufti Haj Amin al-Husseini.

“Hitler didn’t want to exterminate the Jews at the time. He wanted to expel the Jews,” Netanyahu told the World Zionist Congress on Tuesday. “And Haj Amin al-Husseini went to Hitler and said: ‘If you expel them, they’ll all come here.’ ‘So what should I do with them?’ he asked. He said: ‘Burn them.’”

Netanyahu was trying to illustrate his claim that Palestinian incitement goes back decades, and is not related to any Israeli policies.

But in doing so, the prime minister won the support of neo-Nazis.

“His [Netanyahu’s] statement is completely factual. Hitler never had any plan to exterminate Jews,” writes Andrew Anglin in an article on The Daily Stormer website entitled Netanyahu Comes Out in Defense of Hitler. “He lobbied continually before and during the war to have them shipped out peacefully, giving them fair payment for their properties and so on.”

This is “historical fact,” says Anglin, adding that Hitler “helped Jews get to Palestine.”

They don’t bother to link my article or mention my reasons for claiming this is “historical fact.” Unless they are denying that the Transfer Agreement and Madagascar Plan existed, they would also have to admit that it is a fact Hitler spent a great deal of energy trying to deport Jews, and was even supported by Zionist organizations – even after the war started.

Is The Times of Israel denying this? Why is “historical fact” in quotes?

Jews Cry 6 Million Tears Over Anne Frank Bobblehead Figure

Daily Slave
August 23, 2014

annefrank
The Anne Frank collector bobblehead – lol.

A company that makes Bobblehead figures of different historical figures has now caught the wrath of Jews because of a “Holocaust Anne Frank Bobblehead” that is currently being sold on Amazon.

Anne Frank is a figure that Jews have used to help promote their ridiculous Holohoax.  She is said to have died during World War II leaving behind a diary that many historians believe was forged either by her father Otto Frank or novelist Meyer Levin.  Despite its questionable authenticity, the Jews have used it along with Elie Weisel’s Night as two of their most prominent pieces of Holohoax propaganda.

So with this said, it is comical that the Jews are so outraged over an Anne Frank Bobblehead figure.  There didn’t appear to be any malicious intent by the manufacturers as it seems clear that they fully accept the official version of their ridiculous Holohoax.

The Jews did say that they would be troubled if somebody made an Adolf Hitler Bobblehead figure, so perhaps that’s something someone should create and sell.  Just think how many tears Jews would shed if somebody did that.

Delaware Online:

For some, the young Jewish martyr Anne Frank personifies the Holocaust.

For others, she is a plastic toy that bobs along on your dashboard.

Recently, I bought an Edgar Allan Poe bobblehead at The News Journal’s charity sale. Smitten, I began searching the Internet for other literary figures to amass a collection.

So, I was a bit shocked to discover a “Holocaust Anne Frank Bobblehead” being sold on Amazon.com for $19.95.

Four reviewers wrote in, appalled.

“This is the most degrading thing I’ve ever seen,” one wrote. “What is wrong with people?” said another.

So far, the doll has not garnered national attention

Wendy Berger, the Jewish Federation of Delaware’s development director, said she had neither seen nor heard of the doll before The News Journal sent her a product link.

The Federation issued the following statement:

“The Jewish Federation of Delaware finds it disturbing and in poor taste that any company would produce a product that appears to make light of any historical tragedy.”

Berger declined further comment.

It’s unclear how long the doll has been on the market, since the Seattle, WA company that produces it, Off the Wall Toys, did not respond to a request for comment.

The company, known for producing funny toys and gag gifts, also sells bobbleheads that resemble former Pres. George W. Bush, Pres. Barack Obama, Elvis, Mother Teresa, Helen Keller, Moses and former North Korean dictator Kim II-sung. Other Amazon sellers market bobbleheads of Jesus and Pope Francis.

Which begs the question: Should certain historical figures be considered off-limits for kitschy toys?

The national Anti-Defamation League weighed in.

Deborah Lauter, the ADL’s director of civil rights, said she had never seen the toy before.

“When I heard about it, it just seemed crass and insensitive,” she said.

But then she took a closer look. The manufacturer’s description notes Anne Frank as a “beloved victim of the Holocaust.”

“The way they promoted it, there appears to be no malicious intent,” Lauter concluded. “I could see it resonating as a heroine figure for young people.”

“We would obviously be troubled by a bobblehead of Hitler being sold,” she added.

Holocaust-Researchers List. Victims of a Witch-Hunt

This page is dedicated to the hundreds of people who have put their lives, reputation and freedom on the line to bring truth to the world.


Attorney Sylvia StolzAttorney Sylvia Stolz made it her mission to show up the Government of Germany, called the Bundesrepublik (BRD in short) as a vassal state of Israel.

Background and contribution

Ms. Stolz used the courtroom and the trial of Ernst Z�ndel as a platform to get media attention for her charge that the judicial system in Germany is a tool of foreign domination and does not serve the interests of the German people. She was forcibly removed from the courtroom. Shortly thereafter, German prosecutors charged her with abuse of court proceedings, accusing her of denying the Holocaust herself and intentionally prolonging the trial by submitting evidentiary documents on behalf of her client, even though the “Holocaust” is offenkundig, meaning “obvious” or “self-evident”. The trial collapsed after Ms. Stolz was banned from the proceedings on the grounds that she was trying to sabotage the trial. Proceedings later resumed without her, and she knew she would be victimized for her courageous stand. Shortly thereafter, Mannheim prosecutors charged Ms. Stolz with what is known as the “Holocaust Protection Paragraph”, (Paragraph 130) and after a separate trial, she was sentenced to 3 1/2 years in prison. Her licence to practice law was revoked for 5 years.


Attorney Horst Mahler

Often described as a “notorious far-right attorney” who called the Holocaust a lie and accused the German legal system as politically corrupt is again before the court on charges of incitement under Paragraph 130.

Background and contribution:

Mahler was not originally part of the Revisionist scene. He became interested in the Holocaust controversy from a Revisionist point of view after he took on the defense of ethnic singer Frank Rennike. In recent years he has frequently appeared in court for his beliefs and doubts, including events surrounding 9/11. He is currently serving a 12 (!) year sentence for denying “the Holocaust”.


Dr. Fredrick Toben

Though German in origin, Dr. Fredrick Toben was raised in Australia as an Australian citizen, and speaks both English and German. Becoming interested in exonerating the German people from the anti-German racism of the Holocaust legend, he at first edited a revisionist journal called Truth Missions, which was later renamed Adelaide Institute Newsletter. He then broadened out to establish Australia’s revisionist website, Adelaide Institute. He has personally visited the site of Auschwitz and burrowed under the ruins of the alleged gas chamber, being unable to find the four holes in the roof which were supposedly used to throw in gas pellets. He conducted regular dialogue with Exterminationists, and did not expect to be arrested when he visited Prosecutor Klein in Mannheim, Germany, for a private discussion on the Holocaust laws in Germany, which make it mandatory to accept the entire Holocaust story.

Nevertheless, he was arrested by Klein and police chief Mohr in Mannheim, Germany, in April, 1999, and was awaiting trial for being a “holocaust denier” for seven months. He then was tried and sentenced to ten months imprisonment, but released from prison while awaiting his appeal. He left Germany and did not return for his appeal trial.
Recently prosecuted and jailed in Australia for publicly denying “the Holocaust”.


Paul Rassinier

Barred from entering Germany for trying to give testimony for the defense in political trials.

Background and contribution:

Born in 1906, Rassinier, a school teacher, is seen as the Father of modern European Revisionism. A French resistance fighter and friend of the Jews, he was imprisoned by the Germans for his illegal activities in Buchenwald and Camp Dora where he worked in the underground rocket factories. He was elected after the war as a member of the French National Assembly for the Socialist Party. Rassinier nonetheless wrote groundbreaking Revisionist books.


Dr. Robert Faurisson

At least 10 times physically assaulted by Holocaust Enforcers; on several occasions nearly killed. Jaws broken. Teeth knocked out. Hospitalized for weeks. Persecuted mercilessly in endless legal battles.

Background and contribution:

Known as the “Dean of the world-wide Revisionist movement” and principal teacher of Ernst Zündel, Dr. Faurisson first discovered the technical and architectural drawings of the Auschwitz morgues, the crematories and other installations. He was also the first to insist that only a U.S. gas chamber expert could unravel the technical impossibility of the Auschwitz homicidal gassing story – as falsely told to the public for over half a century. Zündel mentor, advisor and trial witness in the 1984 preliminary hearings and in the 1985 and 1988 Great Holocaust Trials. Slated as expert witness for the 1991 Munich trial of Ernst Zündel. (The prosecution dropped the Anne Frank Diary part of the charge in mid-trial after they learned that Dr. Faurisson was going to testify to that point.)


Thies Christophersen

Forced to flee from country to country. Hounded to death after numerous acid attacks, arson, and attempts on his life and property.

Background and contribution:

As a German agrarian expert, Christophersen was stationed at Auschwitz in the critical period 1943-44. As a German expert, he had access to the entire camp. He took valuable photographs at the time. He was the first Revisionist eyewitness to come forward stating categorically that there were no gas chambers for killing humans in Auschwitz. He wrote the famous booklet, “Die Auschwitz-Lüge”, (The Auschwitz Lie) translated into many languages. Zündel witness in the 1985 and 1988 Great Holocaust Trials.


Judge Wilhelm Stäglich

Was tried and convicted in post-war German courts. Had his doctorate stripped from him and his pension cut for speaking out.

Background and contribution:

Judge Stäglich, stationed during WWII in the Auschwitz area with an anti-aircraft unit, published a groundbreaking book “Der Auschwitz Mythos” (The Auschwitz Myth) – seized, forbidden and destroyed by West German court order.


Joseph Burg (Ginzburg)

Persecuted and beaten by Holocaust Enforcers of Jewish Defense League type thugs. Denied burial in the Munich Jewish cemetery. (Ernst Zündel and Otto Ernst Remer gave the eulogies.)

Background and contribution:

Author of many books (“Schuld und Schicksal”, “Zionazi”, “Das Tagebuch der Anne Frank”, “Auschwitz in alle Ewigkeit” etc.) as well as many pamphlets and two documentary interviews with Ernst Zündel. Chief Jewish advisor, mentor and Zündel witness in the 1988 Great Holocaust Trials.


Professor Arthur Butz

Vilified and persecuted for almost three decades.

Background and contribution:

An American electrical engineer and university professor, Butz wrote the “Bible” of modern Revisionism titled “The Hoax of the 20th Century”. This book, which deals with most details of Holocaust lore from “shrunken heads” to “Jewish soap” and “gassing” claims, more than any other influenced Ernst Zundel in his Revisionist research.


Haviv Schieber

Driven to attempted suicide

Background and contribution:

A Polish Jew and former mayor of Ber Sheeba in Israel, Schieber taught Ernst Zündel much about Israeli reality. He was an Israeli Revisionist, wanting to revise Israel’s attitudes, institutions and borders. He fled Israel to find safety in the USA, was denied political asylum at first, and tried to take his life by slashing his wrists at Washington, D.C. airport on the day of his deportation. He was finally allowed refuge from Israeli persecution in the US in the early 1970s.


Francois Duprat

Killed for distributing the French language version of “Did Six Million Really Die?”

Background and contribution:

A French writer, historian and educator, Duprat had introduced the booklet “Did Six Million Really Die?” in France by publishing the first French translation. He also published “The Mystery of the Gas Chamber.” He was only 38 years old when his car was blown up by a bomb and he was assassinated on March 18, 1978. His wife, who was with him in the car, lost the use of her legs in this terrorist act. Two Jewish groups took credit for the assassination – the “Jewish Remembrance Commando” and another group who identified itself as “. . . Jewish Revolutionary Group.” The assassins were never found.


Ditlieb Felderer

Charged, tried, convicted and jailed in Sweden. Vilified in the press. Forced to live in exile.

Background and contribution:

Felderer, at one time a prominent Jehovah’s Witness, is known as an early researcher into the physical evidence in every major concentration camp in then Communist Eastern Europe. Felderer took over 30,000 photographs of every conceivable detail in the camps. He discovered that there was a swimming pool for the inmates in Auschwitz, modern hospital facilities, including a gynecological section, as well as an orchestra, live theatre, well-stocked library, and sculpting classes. He discovered the musical score of the “Auschwitz Waltz” in the secret archives accessible only with special permission. He found that an intimate role was played by Jehovah Witnesses in the camps, who cooperated with the SS-Administration, and he exposed the lie of the 60,000 Jehovah’s Witnesses killed. (On his initiative and insistence, the inflated number was reduced to 203) [Trial Transcript Vol. 18, 4226 to 4229; 4645]. For his Revisionist work, Felderer was excommunicated – that is, drummed out of the Jehovah Witnesses’ sect. He has been persecuted by the Holocaust Enforcers ever since. Felderer is known for his weird sense of humor and outlandish, offensive cartoons. He believes that deliberate Holocaust liars and history falsifiers should not have their sensibilities spared. This idiosyncrasy of Felderers is being exploited by Holocaust propagandists in counter-attacks against him. Zündel advisor and witness in the 1985 and 1988 Great Holocaust Trials.


Professor Austin App

Persecuted for his courageous and tireless truth campaign for two generations on behalf of German-Americans.

Background and contribution:

A German-American community leader and author of many booklets and tracts – among them “The Six Million Swindle,” “Action on a War Crime,” “The Bombing Atrocity of Dresden,” “Ravaging the women of Conquered Europe,” and many others – Professor App was an early guide of Ernst Zündel.


Ernst Zündel

Three documented assassination attempts by fire and pipe bombs. Endless legal harassment leading to repeated jailings and bankrupting of his graphic arts business. Jailed for more than 7 years in Canada, in the USA, in Canada again and finally in Germany, just for speaking the truth.
To this day, he is efficiently gagged by the German authorities who monitor his every word.

Background and contribution:

Nicknamed the “Revisionist Dynamo” or the “Revisionist Renaissance Man” for his untiring Revisionist Truth Campaign and his comprehensive grasp of complex political issues, Zündel – more than any other Revisionist on earth – caused the Holocaust Hoax to become a mainstream topic of discussion.


Jim Keegstra

Lost his job and his reputation was destroyed. Prevented an arson attempt against him. Was convicted to a $3,000 fine after 10 years of costly litigation. Was financially ruined by his ordeal.

Background and contribution:

A Canadian school teacher of Dutch background, Keegstra taught both sides of the Holocaust and other questions of history. He was charged under Canada’s infamous “Hate Laws”, and was tried and convicted. He appealed – and was re-tried and re-convicted. Three times, his case went to the Supreme Court. He ultimately lost. Zündel witness in the 1985 Great Holocaust Trial.


Frank Walus

Attacked seven times by Jewish assailants; nearly killed in an acid attack. Lost his US citizenship and his home to pay for his defense.

Background and contribution:

A Polish German-American auto worker, Walus was targeted and accused falsely by Simon Wiesenthal to be a “Nazi War Criminal.” Vilified by the US media in a vicious campaign as the “Butcher of Kielce”, Walus fought bravely against his tormentors of the Office of Special Investigations, also known as the US “Nazi Hunters”. He ultimately won his case against them in a costly appeals process but died after several massive heart attacks – a bitter, financially ruined man. He refused to be buried on US soil because he felt the country had betrayed and failed him. Zündel witness in the 1985 Great Holocaust Trial.


Emil Lachout

Mercilessly hounded by Austrian authorities and the Austrian lapdog media for over a decade. Forced to undergo a humiliating psychiatric assessment.

Background and contribution:

An Austrian school teacher, former military police man and Boy Scout leader, Lachout’s name is associated with the famous Müller-Lachout document. He ultimately won his case in the European Court of Human Rights. Austria must pay him compensation but hasn’t done yet – so far. Never a man to do things by halves, Lachout is demanding an apology from the Austrian State. Zündel witness in the 1988 Great Holocaust Trials.


Dr. Henri Roques

Had his doctorate revoked.

Background and contribution:

Henri Rocques is a French author and researcher who exposed the Myth of Pope Pius XII’s complicity in the Holocaust. His doctoral thesis made world-wide headlines in 1986 when, for the first time in the nearly eight-century history of French universities, a duly awarded doctorate was quickly revoked on French government’s orders, after an outcry by the Leftist-Jewish media in France. In a tightly argued dissertation, Rocques came to the stunning conclusion that the allegations of mass gassings of Jews made by SS officer Kurt Gerstein were groundless, and that the supposed Roman-Catholic coverup of this “slaughter” are false. He further concluded that postwar academics deliberately falsified key parts of the already tortured Gerstein testimony. His dissertation was eventually published by the Institute for Historical Review in book form under the title “The Confessions of Kurt Gerstein.”


Tjiudar Rudolph

Imprisoned in Germany for lengthy stints for “doubting the Holocaust”, even though he was in his mid-eighties at the time.

Background and contribution:

A former German Security Service member, fluent in five languages including Yiddish and Polish, Rudolph was involved with organizing Red Cross inspection tours of Auschwitz and other camps during the war. He wrote numerous Revisionist articles. He accompanied Fred Leuchter as translator to Auschwitz and Maidanek in 1988. He was charged and convicted for publishing a newsletter disputing the “Six Million” story. Zündel witness in the 1985 and 1988 Great Holocaust Trials.


Udo Walendy

Convicted and imprisoned in Germany for 15 months, even though already in his seventies and in poor health with a serious heart condition.

Background and contribution:

A prolific German researcher, writer and publisher of numerous books and a series of popular booklets called “Historische Tatsachen” – (“Historical Truths”) including the German version of “Did Six Million Really Die?” and the German language version of the Leuchter Report #1 – Walendy was dragged before the courts numerous times. His home and offices were frequently raided by the police. Business files, books, printing plates and computers were confiscated. Zündel advisor and witness in the 1985 and 1988 Great Holocaust Trials.


Fred Leuchter

Arrested and jailed in Germany. Financially ruined.

Background and contribution:

An American execution expert, Leuchter designed and maintained gas chambers for several US penal institutions. He was sent by Ernst Zündel to investigate Auschwitz, Majdanek, Dachau, Hartheim and other alleged “Nazi Death Camps” and “gassing facilities.” Author of the devastating series of Leuchter Reports. (I, II, III, IV) and many articles and videotaped presentations that resulted from these investigations, Leuchter was blacklisted in the US and hounded by the Holocaust Promotion Lobby and the world’s lapdog media. He was arrested and jailed in Germany for giving an anti-Holocaust lecture for Günther Deckert, a well-known political party leader. Allowed out on bail, Leuchter returned to the US. and chose not to go back to Germany to stand trial. Nonetheless, he lost his livelihood as a result. Sensational Zündel witness in the 1988 Great Holocaust Trials. Leuchter, although present in the courtroom in Munich, was not allowed to testify about his research findings in Auschwitz for Ernst Zündel in the German (Munich) Trial in 1991.


David Irving

Convicted, jailed, fined, deported and barred from numerous countries – and hounded world-wide by Holocaust Enforcers.

Background and contribution:

A prolific British author of approximately 36 books and recognized authority on Hitler and World War II, Irving pretty much believed and accepted the standard Holocaust version – until he read the Leuchter Report. He agreed to testify as the last witness for the defense in the 1988 Great Holocaust Trials. His appearance was a sensation! In the following years, he went on widely publicized and acclaimed Canada- and America-wide lecture tours. He traveled as a speaker through several European countries, with headlines and controversy dogging his every step. He drew packed houses and infuriated the Holocaust Lobby, which reacted with vicious smear campaigns and managed to have Irving arrested and convicted in Munich, Germany, for “defaming the dead.” This conviction caused Irving to be ultimately banned from Canada, Australia, Italy, New Zealand and South Africa. He was deported in handcuffs from Niagara Falls, Ontario, after a farcical Immigration hearing, during which he was held and treated in jail like some common criminal – for weeks!
Irving was arrested in Austria in 2005 and jailed for 400 days (solitary confinement) because of somthing he allegedly had said in a lecture on history to a group of students in Vienna 16 years before.


Ivan Lagace

Became the target of several Royal Canadian Mounted Police raids. Resigned from his job as crematory director after receiving endless threats by anonymous callers and from thugs claiming to be the Jewish Defense League.

Background and contribution:

A crematory expert from Calgary, Alberta, who had been responsible for the disposing of 10,000 bodies in his career, Lagace finally sorted out – publicly and in open court – all the fanciful lies about the Germans supposedly “cremating multiple corpses in single corpse retorts” in Auschwitz, Birkenau and elsewhere. Lagace’s testimony put an end to the wild claims by so-called “death camp survivors” about “. . . cremating bodies in five minutes” etc. His testimony – together with Fred Leuchter’s findings as well as the lab results presented by Dr. James Roth of Alpha Laboratories from the soil and rock samples Leuchter had brought from Auschwitz to the USA – spelled the death knell of fanciful “survivor” claims. Lagace was raided by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police in his crematory office. Zündel witness in the 1988 Great Holocaust Trials.


Gerd Honsik

Convicted, fined and driven into exile.

Background and contribution:

Honsik, an Austrian writer and poet, wrote several devastating books – one exposing Simon Wiesenthal, one titled “Freispruch für Hitler” and a third “33 Witnesses against the Gas Chamber Lie.” He was convicted in Austria and Germany to fines in excess of DM 50,000 and forced to go into exile in Spain where he now lives, Gerd Honsik writes a monthly Revisionist newsletter in tabloid format titled “Halt!” (“Stop!”) – meaning “Stop the hatred and lies!”


Walter Lüftl

President of Austrian Chamber of Engineers relieved from his elected post after questioning Gas Chambers story on enginering grounds

Background and contribution:

Lüftl was elected to represent 4000 austrian Architects and Construction engineers and was for years a court approved expert witness in cases involving engineering matters.  Simon Wiesenthal and his friends in the media agitated, till the highly respected head of his own engineering firm was dismissed from his post. He had circulated privately what has since been published as the Lüftl Report in which he questions the Gassing story on technical grounds.


Imre Finta

Victimized by the media and financially totally ruined by civil law suits mismanaged by his first lawyers. Criminally charged and prosecuted as a “war criminal” in Canada.

Background and contribution:

A retired Hungarian police captain, Finta was accused by Sabina Citron and others for allegedly persecuting Jews in Hungary during the war. After lengthy legal battles, he was ultimately acquitted by unanimous jury verdict when Ernst Zündel’s attorneys, Doug Christie and Barbara Kulaszka, took over his defense and won his victory in court. The jurors obviously did not believe the many Israeli and Jewish eye-witnesses!


General Otto Ernst Remer

Tried and convicted to more than one year imprisonment, even though he was over 80 years old and in ill health.

Background and contribution:

A German war hero who successfully thwarted the military putsch by German traitors against Hitler in Berlin on 20 July 1944, Remer seized the political opportunity brought about by the revelations of the Leuchter Report. He made the findings known to millions of people by privately publishing “Die Remer Depesche”, a mass circulation tabloid style newspaper. The German vassal regime came down hard on the old soldier. He was tried and convicted to prison. He went into exile in Spain, wheelchair-bound, where he died. His widow now has to fight for her pension. She refuses to return his ashes to Germany until such time when her husband’s remains can be returned under honorable circumstances.


Jerome Brentar

His reputation tarnished and his company boycotted, Brentar lost his livelihood for saving a man from the noose.

Background and contribution:

This Croation-American trained social worker and Christian activist has helped every falsely accused “war criminal” – from Frank Walus to Dr. Arthur Rudolf to Mr. Bartesch. He was of immense help to John Demjanjuk. Due to the tireless work of this saintly man, Walus and Demjanjuk won their cases in the end. Brentar spent almost $500,000 of his own funds to help pay for the lawyers’ fees, translators, flights, hotel accommodations, meals, and witness fees. He lost his once thriving Travel Agency because of the vicious publicity engendered, and now lives at the edge of poverty in forced retirement on his social security pension. Zündel researcher, advisor and witness in the 1985 Great Holocaust Trial.


John Demjanjuk

Extradited, charged, tried, convicted and sentenced to death by hanging. Spent many years in prison.

Background and contribution:

Demjanjuk was a Ukrainian autoworker and former camp guard whose grotesque case saw him extradited to Israel from the USA for trial. Convicted to death by hanging, but ultimately released by the Israeli Supreme Court, who obviously did not believe what must have been the perjured or false testimony of Israeli eye-witnesses, Demjanjuk was saved from the noose because Jerry Brentar worked day and night to search and find exonerating documents, eye witnesses and handwriting experts to save Demjanjuk’s life. America has returned his passport and must pay him his pension for all the years of his imprisonment. Hopefully, part of that money will go Jerry Brentar to recover his outlays.

Demjanjuk was later extradited to Germany and harassed for years there by the “German” authorities who tried to get him convicted but failed.


Germar Rudolf

Accused, tried and convicted in Germany. Career and doctorate dissertation ruined. Driven into exile.

Background and contribution:

This brilliant, German-trained chemist re-examined Auschwitz, Birkenau and other installations and buildings, testing rocks, soil and other physical samples for traces of Zyklon B. Following the pioneering work of Fred Leuchter, he put the final nail into the coffin of the Auschwitz story. Even though he did scientific work and was utterly apolitical, Rudolf’s home and office were raided, computers seized etc. He was charged and tried in Germany for not believing in the standard Auschwitz story. As a scientist, he found the “gassing” claims to be scientifically untenable and, therefore, absurd. A modern day Galileo, Rudolf was found guilty and convicted because he refused to renounce scientific facts and his own scientific tests and findings. He was facing jail when he went into exile with his young wife and two babies. He now edits and publishes devastating refutations of the Allied Propaganda claims in a German-language journal. The Holocaust Enforcers are dogging his steps, and he faces endless hassles and trials, should the “German” vassal authorities ever get a hold of him. Zündel expert witness in chemistry in the Munich trial in 1991 – disallowed by the judge at the request of the prosecution.


Attorney Jürgen Rieger

Attacked and beaten. Car blown up. Professional reputation and career ruined.

Background and contribution:

Long-time Zündel attorney in Germany, Rieger has been a defender of German patriots since his law school days. He has drawn the ire of the Holocaust Enforcers by winning the 1981 Zündel case in Stuttgart against the false claim that Zündel had published “hate literature”, and winning several cases against the German vassal regime who had confiscated Zündel’s postal bank account, unfreezing DM 30,000 in the process. He also managed to regain for Zündel his confiscated German passport – after a six-year legal battle. Rieger was attacked and beaten unconscious in broad daylight after leaving a Hamburg courthouse and had to be airlifted, near death, by helicopter to the trauma unit of the hospital of Hamburg University, where he lay unconscious for days. The assailants escaped after their assassination attempt. German police later caught one Turkish “guest worker” who was tried – and let go! The other culprits were never found.


Attorney Doug Christie

Targeted professionally on numerous occasions with spurious charges of “unprofessional conduct” lodged with law societies in Canada.

Background and contribution:

Undoubtedly the finest constitutional and civil rights lawyer of his generation in Canada, Christie is known for his exceptional defenses of Ernst Zündel, Jim Keegstra, Malcolm Ross, Imre Finta and many other persecuted dissidents in Canada – and even the octogenarian, aristocratic Lady Birdwood in England. Under constant threat by busybodies in various law societies, usually the target of Jewish Holocaust Lobbyist complaints, Christie has frequently been intimidated during the Zündel trials by judges who threatened him with contempt of court when he called their arbitrary decisions into question. He is hated by all enemies of freedom, by many groveling politicians and the intellectual prostitutes in the Canadian media establishment. Christie has headed the Zündel legal defense team for over 15 years.


Attorney Kirk Lyons

Viciously character-assassinated by the media and “Jewish defense” organizations after defending the rights of US patriots.

Background and contribution:

An American civil rights lawyer of note, skill and courage and defender of many patriots, especially the “Dead of Waco,” Lyons has represented people like Fred Leuchter in controversial cases, and has lately been targeted by the conservative “Spotlight” for “special media treatment” because he won a large suit against a law firm which had mismanaged a case involving one of his clients, the former Populist Party of the USA and Don Wassal. Character assassins are still trying to falsely link Lyons to the Oklahoma City bombing via a client of his, Andy Strasmeir, son of a famous German political operative and advisor to Helmut Kohl. Lyons has also defended patriots in the famous “Fort Smith Sedition Trial” and has since been vilified by the ADL.


Bradley Smith

Viciously character-assassinated and kicked off his web server.

Background and contribution:

A Libertarian, former bookstore owner, bullfighter, writer and broadcaster, Smith runs the wildly successful “Campus Project”, placing ads in college and university student papers and asking for an open debate on the Holocaust. He is the owner of the popular CODOH website, known to be one of the top mainstream Revisionist websites on the Net, running head-to-head with Greg Raven’s new Institute for Historical Review website. The Holocaust Lobby is relentless in its attacks against Bradley Smith.
Zündel defense witness in the 1985 Great Holocaust Trial.


Michael Hoffman II

Viciously character-assassinated.

Background and contribution:

Hoffman is a former Associated Press reporter and author of the first book on Ernst Zündel’s 1985 Trial, a biography that has undergone many printings. He is an indefatigable Revisionist researcher. He publishes a monthly newsletter titled Revisionist History, and is the author and publisher of numerous books and booklets. A noted, talented speaker and producer of Revisionist videos, Hoffman is also one of Revisionists’ most skilled and passionate writers. He has drawn the Holocaust Lobby’s ire for his grass roots street level activism and manly courage.


Ingrid Weckert

Tried, convicted and fined.

Background and contribution:

One of the best-known German historical researchers and writers, Weckert is best known for her book on the events leading up to Kristallnacht – a book called “Feuerzeichen” (Flashpoint). She has been subjected to police raids, during one of which Ernst Zündel was arrested in her apartment in Munich. A former tourist guide for travel agencies, she reads and speaks Hebrew. She knew Menachim Begin and other Jewish leaders personally and frequently visited Israel. In 1998, she was tried, convicted and fined DM 3,500 for writing a Revisionist article. She now lives at the edge of poverty from a small pension.


Erhard Kemper

Legally harassed. Endlessly hounded.

Background and contribution:

Kemper is a German agrarian engineer and gifted, politically astute freelance writer who has been arrested, tried and convicted for his revisionist writings in Germany dozens of times. He is unbroken in spirit, in spite of the constant legal harassment and failing health as a result of his persecution. He has been completely impoverished and his health has been ruined, but he bravely soldiers on.


Günther Deckert

Imprisoned for years in Germany.

Background and contribution:

A German educator, party leader, writer, public speaker and publicist, Deckert won fame for being tried and convicted after he simultaneously translated an English-language lecture by Fred Leuchter in Germany into German. He was at first acquitted by a German judge who found him to be an upright and decent patriot, then recharged and convicted by a different judge after an artificially created international media uproar.


Hans Schmidt

Arrested, tried and jailed in Germany, even though he was a US citizen.

Background and contribution:

German-American author and publisher of a German- as well as an English-language newsletter (GANPAC Brief and USA-Berichte), Schmidt was arrested in 1995 for having written about a “Jew- and Freemason infested” oligarchy and media ruling today’s Germany. He spent 5 months in prison for four words. Released on bail and in ill health, Schmidt returned to the USA where he wrote a book about his experience in Germany, titled “Jailed in Democratic Germany.” He has been a thorn in the side of the German vassal authorities for many years.


David Cole

Became a victim of the JDL. Was physically beaten. Had his life threatened on the Internet by the Jewish Defense League.

Background and contribution:

This young Jewish Revisionist filmmaker came to the defense of Ernst Zündel when Zündel needed defending. Subsequently, Zündel and Cole made a film in Auschwitz, with David Cole pointing out all the things wrong with that theme park of hate against Germans. Later yet, Cole came to Canada to lecture to large audiences on his Revisionist findings in Auschwitz, together with David Irving. He also appeared with Zündel in Munich, Germany, spreading Revisionism right under the watchful eyes of the German political police. In a vicious letter posted on the Internet, the Jewish Defense League threatened Cole’s life. Emotionally fragile and torn between his conscience and family loyalties as well as filial devotion, he could not withstand the pressure and recanted with an abject apology to his tribesmen and tormentors. Every serious Revisionist understands that this act of recantation was coerced and may have bought David his very survival.


Jürgen Graf

Charged, tried and convicted in Switzerland. Fired for the second time from his teaching post.

Background and contribution:

A Swiss school teacher and language genius, Graf speaks almost one dozen languages fluently and understands many more, some of them the most exotic ones such as Russian, Japanese, Thai as well as Malay and Filipino dialects. Author of several books, among them “Der Holocaust auf dem Prüfstand” (The Holocaust on Trial), he went recently to Russia where he researched Russian archives for months. The Swiss government charged, tried and convicted Graf in 1998 to 15 months in jail under the new anti-Revisionist law adopted by the Swiss in 1994.

Graf’s German-born, 80-year-old publisher was likewise convicted to 1 year in prison.


Siegfried Verbeke

Currently on trial in Holland under immense police pressure in Belgium. Endured numerous police raids and business boycotts.

Background and contribution:

The most dynamic Revisionist in Belgium and maybe all of Europe, Verbeke published numerous books, booklets, magazines and tracts for European Revisionists.
Verbeke is now himself on trial, together with Dr. Faurisson – accused of cutting into the financial profits of the Anne Frank Foundation because of their books and texts critical of the Anne Frank Diary. Both are currently appealing a Dutch verdict. Verbeke seems undeterred by numerous police raids. Europe-wide, he carries on with a vigorous mass circulation, grassroots-based Revisionist Truth-in-History campaign in several European languages.


Carlos Porter

Charged, tried in absentia, and convicted in Germany.

Background and contribution:

An American ex-patriate, skilled linguist and translator living in Belgium and author of numerous books – “Not Guilty at Nuremberg”, “Made in Russia: The Holocaust” subtitled “The German Defenses Case” – Porter was charged by the Germans in 1997. He refused to attend the trial, was tried in absentia and convicted. He responded with a defiant, blistering Emile Zola-like excoriating written counterattack to the judge in his case, and presently is waiting to be arrested and taken to Germany to serve his sentence there.


Malcolm Ross

Fired from his teaching post for politically incorrect writings.

Background and contribution:

A Canadian school teacher and author, Ross was for years a thorn in the eyes of the Holocaust Lobby because of his writings. It took years to fire him under some flimsy excuse because he never taught his version of history in class. Charged and re-charged, he repeatedly won in appeal courts. After years of litigation, the Supreme Court in a unanimous ruling found Malcolm Ross guilty in the end, and he was sentenced to a fine. Today, he is the unemployed father of two children.


Ingrid Rimland

Vilified by the ADL as an “Extremist.” Had her new trilogy “Lebensraum!” seized by the hundreds and banned in Canada as “hate material.”

Background and contribution:

Ingrid Rimland is best known for her novels dealing with World War II that bring to life and explain the underlying reasons of the Third Reich’s struggle against Communism. Canada Customs confiscated and banned the titles, even though there was not enough time to have these massive, well-researched books read, much less professionally content-evaluated. Rimland has had global mainstream media coverage as the defender of the controversy-dogged Zundelsite – which seems to be the reason her name as been smeared as an “Extremist” in a 1997 ADL smear publication.


Pedro Varela

Grotesquely charged with “genocide” – for selling books.

Background and contribution:

Spanish bookseller and well-known, long-time leader of the Spanish youth group “Cedade”, Varela is convicted several times in Spanish courts for “genocide” for selling historical, Revisionist and National Socialist books. Jewish Lobbyists asked for a 24 year prison term for Varela.


Ahmed Rami

Tried, convicted and imprisoned in Sweden.

Background and contribution:

Rami is a former Moroccan military officer living in exile in Sweden, where he used to run “Radio Islam”, a radio program that was closed down due to Holocaust Lobby pressure. He was tried and convicted in Sweden for his Revisionist views and served a nine month prison term. Now he runs a much-visited, multilingual website famous the world over, which has come under repeated attack by French and Swedish Jewish sources. He won several court skirmishes, and for the moment seems to hold his own.


Nick Griffin

Charged, tried, convicted and fined in England.

Background and contribution:

Famous for his recent court case over pictures and words published in the magazine “The Rune”, Griffin, a well-known British political activist, was charged, tried and convicted as a sacrificial lamb on the altar of Tony Blair’s election promises – to be “tougher on Revisionists and racists.” Two US black separatist leaders spoke out as witnesses for Griffin, but he was convicted nonetheless to a steep fine of L3,000. (The expert witness for the defense was none other than Dr. Robert Faurisson who helped out once again when help was needed.)


Jean Marie Le Pen

Charged, convicted and under political sanctions in France.

Background and contribution:

The flamboyant French then leader of the “Front National”, the largest and most promising nationalist political party in Europe, “belittled” the Holocaust and called it “a mere detail, a footnote in the history of WWII” – apparently using the phrase on three different occasions! He was convicted in a French court under the Communist-inspired Gayssot Law. He was given a steep fine and forbidden to run in elections for the next two years. Le Pen was undeterred, even though politically victimized for years by the French political establishment and a disgustingly hypocritical, largely Jewish-dominated French media.


Roger Garaudy

Charged, tried and convicted in France.

Background and contribution:

A former French Communist leader, philosopher and recent convert to Revisionism and Islam, Garaudy was charged, tried and convicted for writing a semi-Revisionist book titled “The Founding Myths of Israeli Politics,” in which he had quoted extensively from material by Dr. Faurisson (without attribution) and by Barbara Kulaszka’s book “Did Six Million Really Die?” (with attribution). He was condemned to a $50,000 fine. His trial was a farce and his performance in court disappointing. However, as a result, he seems to have kicked loose an avalanche of Revisionist thought and activities in the Moslem world, much to the chagrin of Israel – a country that more and more considers Revisionism its Number One problem.


Abbe Pierre

Victim of fierce world-wide media vilification.

Background and contribution:

Considered a male “Mother Theresa” for his altruistic dedication to the poor of France, this famous pro-Marxist French cleric endorsed Roger Garaudy’s Revisionist book – and was almost crucified by a vitriolic media reaction. The Holocaust Enforcers made a huge mistake picking on this man. He fired back salvo after salvo – much to everyone’s surprise. He fought bravely for a man well into his eighties, but in the end fled into a monastery in Italy – from where he apologized under pressure from his church.


Doug Collins

Harassed and vilified by the BC Human Rights Commisson. Financially penalized.

Background and contribution:

Doug Collins was a British soldier in World War II. He was captured and escaped several times. He worked in an intelligence capacity with the British Control Commission in occupied Germany after the war. He emigrated to Canada in the 1950s and worked for several Canadian newspapers. He drew the ire of the Holocaust Enforcers after he testified for Ernst Zündel in the 1985 Great Holocaust Trial. He declared that as a journalist, he saw nothing wrong with the booklet “Did Six Million Really Die?” and that he found no “hate” in that 30,000 word essay. An award-winning journalist and TV commentator and the author of several books, Collins was hauled before a quasi-court by Holocaust Enforcers when he wrote a column about “Swindler’s List” and commented on the preponderance of Jews in Hollywood. He and his paper had to defend themselves before the British Columbia Human Rights Commission, which, in the end, ruled in his favor, after his paper spent more than $200,000 and Collins spent $50,000 of his own money. Barely had he won the case when he was re-charged – for the same column, along with three others!


Dr. Robert Countess

Vilified by the Canadian Human Rights Tribunal and the intervenor lawyers in the Political Show Trial case of Ernst Zündel.

Background and contribution:

The American Revisionist, former army chaplain, lecturer, writer and globe-trotting good-will ambassador, Dr. Robert Countess, was targeted for a special smear- and vilification campaign by Jewish intervenors at the Zündel CHRT Inquisition in Toronto in June 1998. He was sneeringly denied expert witness status, even though he was completely familiar with all the major works discussed and had been in touch with most authors, even in person, dealing with the Holocaust topic – pro and con. Dr. Countess left the “People’s Republic of Canada”, as he called it, for then the safety and then constitutionally governed and protected USA, from where he vowed to carry on the struggle for freedom of speech with still greater vigor.

Having Murdered honey bees and monarch butterflies, Monsanto is now after women

Having Murdered honey bees and monarch butterflies, Monsanto is now after women

Are glyphosate-infected female sanitary products part of the New World Order’s population control?

Tampons, sterile cotton, sanitary pads contaminated with glyphosate – study

The vast majority ‒ 85 percent ‒ of tampons, cotton and sanitary products tested in a new Argentinian study contained glyphosate, the key ingredient in Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, ruled a likely carcinogen by the World Health Organization.

Meanwhile, 62 percent of the samples tested positive for AMPA, glyphosate’s metabolite, according to the study, which was conducted by researchers at the Socio-Environmental Interaction Space (EMISA) of the University of La Plata in Argentina.

All of the raw and sterile cotton gauze analyzed in the study showed evidence of glyphosate, said Dr. Damian Marino, the study’s head researcher.

“Eighty-five percent of all samples tested positive for glyphosate and 62 percent for AMPA, which is the environmental metabolite, but in the case of cotton and sterile cotton gauze the figure was 100 percent,”Marino told Télam news agency. An English translation of the Télam report can be found here. The products tested were acquired at local stores in Argentina.

“In terms of concentrations, what we saw is that in raw cotton AMPA dominates (39 parts per billion, or PPB, and 13 PPB of glyphosate), while the gauze is absent of AMPA, but contained glyphosate at 17 PPB.”

The results of the study were first announced to the public last week at the 3rd National Congress of Doctors for Fumigated Communities in Buenos Aires.

“The result of this research is very serious, when you use cotton or gauze to heal wounds or for personal hygiene uses, thinking they are sterilized products, and the results show that they are contaminated with a probably carcinogenic substance,” said Dr. Medardo Avila Vazquez, president of the congress.

“Most of the cotton production in the country is GM [genetically modified] cotton that is resistant to glyphosate. It is sprayed when the bud is open and the glyphosate is condensed and goes straight into the product,” Avila continued.

Marino said the original purpose of his research was not to test products for glyphosate, but to see how far the chemical can spread when aircraft sprayed an area, such as cropland.

“There is a basic premise in research that when we complete testing on out target we have to contrast it with something ‘clean,’ so we selected sterile gauze for medical use, found in pharmacies,” he said.

“So we went and bought sterile gauze, opened the packages, analyzed and there was the huge surprise: We found glyphosate! Our first thought was that we had done something wrong, so we threw it all away and bought new gauze, analyzed them and again found glyphosate.”

Argentina has had a tampon shortage in recent years based on the country’s policies concerning imports and foreign currency, according to reports in January. Most of the nation’s tampon imports come from Brazil, Miguel Ponce, head of the Chamber of Importers, told AP. Those tampons include American brands, such as OB and Kotex.

In 2014, 96 percent of cotton produced in the United States was genetically modified, according to the US Department of Agriculture.

Transnational agrochemical giant Monsanto’s Roundup herbicide, of which glyphosate is the main ingredient, is sprayed over genetically modified crops ‒ which Monsanto also produces ‒ that are engineered to be resistant to the powerful chemical. Used the world over, glyphosate, which Monsanto first developed in 1974, is a broad-spectrum herbicide used to kill weeds, especially annual broadleaf weeds and grasses known to compete with commercial crops. GMO seeds have caused use of glyphosate to increase immenselysince the 1990s, according to US Geological Survey data.

In March, the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC), an arm of the World Health Organization, classified glyphosate as a “probable carcinogen,” as opposed to its previous designation, a “possible carcinogen.”

In the US, the herbicide has been considered safe since 2013, when Monsanto received approval from the US Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) for increased tolerance levels for glyphosate. In its original assessment, the federal regulator said glyphosate could be “used without unreasonable risks to people or the environment.”

Scientific studies have linked the chemicals in Monsanto’s biocides to Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, autism and cancer. Furthermore, as the most powerful multinational biotech corporation today, Monsanto has drawn the ire of farmers and consumers for its firm grip on the global food chain. The company’s control and advancement of GMO seeds is of prime concern, as they symbolize the company’s consolidation of agricultural processes.

The effects of biochemicals on wildlife, including pollinators such as honeybees and monarch butterflies, are also a point of concern. For instance, since 1990, about 970 million of the butterflies – 90 percent of the total population – have vanished across the United States, according to the Fish and Wildlife Service. At least part of the blame rests on the boom in Roundup use. The herbicide is marketed to farmers and homeowners as an effective method for eliminating plants like milkweed, so it’s widely blamed for decimating the butterflies’ only source of food in the Midwest.

Two-thirds of European Union nations have requested allowance to ban GMO crops, pursuant to European Commission rules.

Monsanto earnings fall 34% after a year of global protests

Company that has come under fire for its genetically modified seeds said its earnings fell 34% in its first fiscal quarter

Monsanto said Wednesday its earnings fell 34% in its first fiscal quarter, as South American farmers cut back on planting corn, reducing demand for the company’s biotech-enhanced seeds.

US farmers harvested record crops of soybeans and corn last year, sending prices on those food staples to their lowest levels in years. That has resulted in farmers in South America and elsewhere reducing the number of acres they dedicate to corn. Monsanto said its business was also affected by reduced cotton planting in Australia.

The agriculture products company’s revenue fell more than 8% to $2.87bn in the period, on lower sales of corn seeds and herbicide. Analysts expected $2.96bn, according to Zacks.

The St Louis-based company reported a profit of $243m, or 50 cents per share, down from $368m, or 69 cents per share in the same period last year.

Earnings, adjusted to account for discontinued operations, came to 47 cents per share in the most recent quarter.

Even with the fall in earnings, the results topped Wall Street expectations. The average estimate of analysts surveyed by Zacks Investment Research was for earnings of 34 cents per share.

Monsanto shares have decreased nearly 3% since the beginning of the year, while the Standard & Poor’s 500 index has climbed slightly more than 8%. The stock has increased slightly in the last 12 months.

The food conglomerate has been at the center of controversy over its genetically-modified seeds for some time, with the focus intensifying in the US last year with marches against the firm and a “Millions Against Monsanto” campaign.

In November’s election, Monsanto and Hormel poured millions into fighting an Oregon state measure, Proposition 92, that would have forced companies to label any food containing genetically modified ingredients. The companies narrowly prevailed and defeated the measure.

Video: Israeli military tells Palestinian refugee camp, ‘We will gas you until you die’ –

A shocking video has emerged recording a loud verbal threat from the Israeli military to residents of Aida refugee camp near Bethlehem. As a military jeep rolls down an empty quiet street a threatening voice comes over the loudspeaker  “You throw stones and we will hit you with gas until you die.” The words spoken seems almost unfathomable.

Middle East Eye (MEE) reports the video was recorded on October 29 by a youth, 17-year-old Yazan Ikhlayel, on his iPhone. Ikhlayel was at Aida’s community center with a clear view of the road below. As Ikhlayel recorded the scene the jeep slows and then come to a halt as the threats continue. You can begin to see stones being thrown at :28 in the video. The threat also warns they were holding a person “one of you” and if they didn’t stop throwing stones they would slaughter the person:

Transcript:

People of Aida Refugee camp we are the occupation army. You throw stones and we will hit you with gas until you all die. The children, the youth, the old people, you will all die, we won’t leave any of you alive. And we have arrested one of you, he is with us now. We took him from his home and we will slaughter and kill him while you are watch if you keep throwing stones. Go home or we will gas you until you die. Your families, your children, everyone we will kill you. Listen to me, all of you go home, it’s better for you.

The Middle East Eye spoke with Ikhlayel, “The most important thing I want people to see when they watch this video is to realise what the Israeli ‘democracy’ really is”.  He also insisted this will not stop the protests:

“They have said it for us now, they are an occupation – they said ‘we are the occupation army’. It is proof, this is an apartheid country, it is not democratic at all.”

“This is the first time I heard them say something like that over a speaker for everyone to hear,” Ikhlayel continued.

“The young people aren’t accepting what the soldiers are doing particularly now. They’re going to the streets [to protest] everyday, and they aren’t stopping. They aren’t scared of them.”

When asked if he thinks the soldier’s message would scare the youth enough to stop the protests, Ikhlayel shook his head adamantly.

“This will not stop until the occupation ends,” he insisted.

Yazan Ikhlayel speaks to MEE (MEE/Abed al-Qaisi)

MEE also interviewed filmmaker and photo journalist Mohammed al-Azza, who has beentargeted and attacked by Israeli forces in the past.  Like Ikhlayel, al-Azza also emphasized the soldier’s (unusual) self identification as  “occupation” forces:  

“It’s been a long time since we’ve seen the soldiers get on a speaker like that,” al-Azza said.

“But really we were surprised by one word – usually they call themselves the IDF (Israel Defence Forces), they don’t say the IOF (Israeli Occupation Forces) like we do, but that is something good for us, and for people outside the country to hear. They said it to us, ‘we are the occupation’….

“Usually when we talk about Palestine we are telling people abroad what happened, and it’s usually after the Israelis have done whatever they did, but now it’s good that the people can hear it from the soldiers. They said ‘we are going to kill you and we are going to do this and that’ in their message. It’s very important for international people to hear this sort of stuff that we are hearing all the time from them.”

Ma’an News reports: Israeli soldiers tell Palestinians: ‘We will gas you until you die’:

“In this statement, we see — among a range of potential criminal offences — a public threat to kill Palestinian civilians, and to execute a prisoner,”Simon Reynolds, Legal Advocacy Coordinator at the BADIL Resource Center for Palestinian Residency and Refugee Rights, told Ma’an.

“Though such threats are appalling, they are not necessarily surprising. In light of the mounting civilian death toll among Palestinians, such threats merely add words to the deed.

“What we are seeing is an apparent policy of lawlessness in which Israeli forces can wield deadly force with virtual impunity. Especially troubling is that this is a policy that seems to have, at the very minimum, the tacit acceptance of the highest levels of government.”Numerous rights groups have publicly condemned Israel’s disproportionate military response while policing demonstrations and responding to alleged attacks.

“Indiscriminate or deliberate firing on observers and demonstrators who pose no imminent threat violates the international standards that bind Israeli security forces,”Kenneth Roth, executive director of Humans Rights Watch said on Oct. 11, after a HRW research assistant was shot and injured while observing a demonstration near Ramallah.

Live ammo & Molotovs: Dozens of Palestinians injured in vicious clashes with Israelis (VIDEOS)

Intense clashes have engulfed West Bank and Gaza Strip resulting in almost a hundred of injuries and several deaths. Israeli forces used live rounds and tear gas to push back violent Palestinian youths who pelted the officers with stones and Molotov cocktails.

Vicious violence in the Gaza strip left at least 46 Palestinians injured after Israeli forces confronted the Molotov-cocktail propelling youth, a spokesperson for the Gaza Ministry of Health, Ashraf al-Qidra, told Ma’an news agency.

At least 17 people were injured by live fire in the clashes near the Erez crossing in the northern Gaza Strip. A medical worker was injured after Israeli forces targeted a Palestinian Red Crescent ambulance in the al-Farrahin area in eastern Khan Younis.

Al-Qidra said that another 19 were injured by rubber-coated steel bullets and burns from tear gas canisters. Another ten Palestinians suffered from tear gas inhalation. All of the injured are being treated at the hospital.

The Israeli Defense Forces (IDF) spokesperson told the Palestinian news agency that Israel had been forced to respond after hundreds of Palestinians attempted to “breach the security fence,” forcing the them to open fire“in order to stop infiltration that would gravely endanger the safety of communities nearby.”

Over in the West Bank, clashes between Palestinians and Israeli troops broke out in Bethlehem during a similar scenario.

Palestinian youths threw petrol bombs and stones at Israeli forces, who responded by firing rubber bullets and tear gas. More than 28 rioters were injured during the confrontation.

Intense clashes were also witnessed in Ramalla when Israeli forces fired rounds and tear gas at Palestinian protesters and journalists as they filmed during a protest. Among those tear-gassed was journalist and RT correspondent Yafa Stetty. Protesters set fire to an Israeli military vehicle as it shot tear gas at them during the clashes.

In the West Bank town of Bait Fajjar, close to Bethlehem, an eight-month-old baby fell victim to tear gas deployed outside her family home. She suffocated to death.

At a Za’tara roadblock next to the city of Nablus, the Israeli forces shot dead a young Palestinian, seriously wounding another boy in the incident.

Violence has escalated across the occupied Palestinian territories and Israel in recent weeks. At least 64 Palestinians have been killed by the Israeli forces with over 2,120 injured. In the same period, at least 11 Israelis have died as a result of attacks.

The UN Security Council is set to debate a draft resolution submitted by New Zealand aimed at halting the recent escalation of violence.

The draft demands that both Israel and the Palestinians take steps “to end the violence, avoid incitement and protect civilians.” It calls on both parties to refrain from “provocative acts, including acts which threaten the historic status quo of holy sites in Jerusalem.

Russia’s UN Ambassador Vitaly Churkin said that the Security Council “should get closer involved,” in the conflict that has not seen any UNSC resolutions in six years.

Palestinians file new evidence of Israeli ‘war crimes’ to International Criminal Court

A Palestinian delegation headed by Mahmoud Abbas has submitted new documents it claims prove Israeli war crimes to the International Criminal Court (ICC). They allege that ethnic cleansing, house demolitions and collective punishment have taken place.

Palestinian president Mahmoud Abbas as well as Palestinian foreign minister Riad Malki met with ICC prosecutor Fatou Bensouda on Friday.

“(We took) also examples of cases that have really occurred in the last 40 days of Israeli aggression against innocent Palestinians around occupied territory,” Malki said after the meeting as cited by Reuters.

The 52-page file submitted to the ICC contains details of alleged “summary executions, collective punishments, house demolitions and ethnic cleansing,” Saeb Erakat, member of the Palestinian parliament said in a statement as cited by AFP.

It “gathers all the information on the Palestinian martyrs and their identities, the way in which they were executed, and is backed by verified photos and videos,” Erakat added.

Palestine joined the ICC in April and already handed over two files documenting alleged Israeli crimes to the court. The first file contained facts about the 2014 Israeli Operation Protective Edge in the Gaza Strip which killed more than 2,000 Palestinians. The other one dealt with Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

The ICC launched a preliminary inquiry into the Gaza conflict to reveal whether crimes perpetrated by both sides are enough to start a full-scale investigation.

“Achieving justice is essential for the Palestinian victims, dead and alive,” said Malki back in June. “Palestine has chosen to seek justice, not vengeance.”

Israel is not a member of the ICC and refuses to cooperate with its inquiries saying that Palestine is not a state and therefore has no right to be an ICC member.

Palestinian ex-MK to begin jail term over Syria visit

Said Nafaa, a former Palestinian member of Israeli parliament, was convicted of travelling to ‘an enemy state’.

Mel Frykberg | 31 Oct 2015 05:37 GMT | Politics, Law, Middle East, Israel, Syria

said Nafaa served in the Knesset, Israel’s parliament, from 2007 until 2013 [AP]

Ramallah, West Bank – Said Nafaa, a former Palestinian member of the Israeli parliament, will on Sunday begin serving a one-year jail sentence for travelling to “an enemy state”, after a second appeal of his case to the Israeli Supreme Court was rejected this month.

“Nafaa will begin his prison sentence on November 1,” said Amjad Iraqi, a spokesperson for Adalah – The Legal Centre for Arab Minority Rights in Israel. The group’s initial appeal of the Nafaa case was rejected in August, Iraqi told Al Jazeera.

Nafaa, a Druze who served in the Knesset, Israel’s parliament, from 2007 until 2013, was charged last year with travelling to an “enemy state” after a trip to Syria in 2007 to visit fellow Druze, along with about 200 other people. He was consequently stripped of his parliamentary immunity in 2010.

Critics allege Nafaa’s jail sentence is a politically motivated attempt by Israel to isolate Palestinians in Israel from Arabs living in other countries.



Nafaa, who is from Beit Jann in northern Israel, has encouraged Israel’s Druze population to abandon its traditional loyalty to the state of Israel, to adopt a Palestinian and pan-Arab identity, and refuse mandatory military service in the Israeli military.

Adalah said the original ruling in late August was a blatant example of politics trumping the rule of law. “The court ignored that the charges against Nafaa were in effect for activity within the context of a Member of Knesset’s (MK) parliamentary immunity, who, according to the law, is permitted to leave and enter the country freely,” the group stated in a news release.

Israel has had a long-standing policy of fragmentation against Palestinians since the state’s establishment. Israel has also tried to achieve this fragmentation through a tiered legal-political hierarchy of Palestinians, Israeli citizens, East Jerusalem residents, [and] West Bank residents.

Amjad Iraqi, Adalah spokesperson

“Israel has had a long-standing policy of fragmentation against Palestinians since the state’s establishment,” Iraqi told Al Jazeera. “Israel has also tried to achieve this fragmentation through a tiered legal-political hierarchy of Palestinians, Israeli citizens, East Jerusalem residents, [and] West Bank residents. The policy has been successful in some practical respects, including separating Gaza from the West Bank, and banning Palestinian citizens from visiting most Arab countries.”

Youssef Jabareen, a Knesset member from the Hadash party, said Israel is using a divide-and-conquer policy to deny Palestinians an identity as one national group.

“It treats Israel’s Christian and Druze minorities as ethnic minority communities at the expense of their Arab identity. Elsewhere in the Arab world, Druze are treated as Arabs with Druze being their religion,” Jabareen told Al Jazeera, noting that in an effort to further this division, Israel developed a separate education system for the Druze in 1976, and applied similar policies to Christian Palestinians.

“Even Israel’s official terminology in Hebrew, there is little reference to Arab nationality or identity, while the term Palestinian is hardly ever heard. Palestinians in Israel are referred to as Israeli Arabs, non-Jews or other minority names,” Jabareen said.

Another method of division, some say, is the compulsory drafting of Druze youth into the Israeli military. Maisan Hamdan, cofounder of the Israel-based independent youth movement, Refuse – Your People will Protect You (Urfod), which encourages Druze youth to refuse to serve in the Israeli military, told Al Jazeera that Druze draftees are regularly put on the front lines in clashes between Israeli security forces and protesting Palestinians, which encourages enmity between the groups.

Recently, though, more Druze have resisted conscription, Hamdan told Al Jazeera: “In the past year and a half, over 80 Druze have refused to serve in the [Israeli military].”

Other Palestinians in Israel, with the exception of the Circassians and Druze, have been exempted from military service since their refusal to enlist in 1954.



Nafaa is not the first Palestinian political activist to be targeted by Israeli authorities for travelling abroad. Other Palestinian members of the Knesset have also been charged in the past with being “foreign agents”, including Hadash member Azmi Bishara, who fled Israel after being threatened with imprisonment in 2007 over his travel to Syria. And Majd Kayyal, a Haifa-based activist, was arrested and detained for five days after travelling to Lebanon last year.

“There is a clear contrast between how Israel treats Palestinian versus Jewish citizens for travelling to enemy states. Various Jewish journalists never received such treatment for going to ‘enemy’ states,” Iraqi said, citing the cases of Ron Ben-Yishai, who reported for the Yedioth Aharonot newspaper from Syria; Tsur Shezaf, who wrote from Lebanon for the Israeli geographical magazine Masa Aher; and Lisa Goldman, who travelled twice to Lebanon for Channel 10 television.

Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesperson Emmanuel Nachshon, however, told Al Jazeera that Nafaa’s background had nothing to do with the charges.

“The issue has nothing to do with religion or ethnicity, but the reasons people travelled to enemy states,” Nachshon said. “Azmi Bishara met with terror organisations which threaten Israel’s security, and this might have been the case with Nafaa too.” Such allegations were not, however, included in the Israeli court’s findings.

“Hitler Was Right” Posters Popping Up at UK University Campus

A number of anti-Semitic posters have been plastered across the campus of Birmingham University,

including one with the slogan “Hitler was Right”. The West Midlands Police are investigating the case. The posters were discovered by Students’ Guild Education Officer Izzy Lenga, who posted a photo to Twitter.

The poster, and others like it, have since been removed from campus by the police who are investigating the matter as a “hate crime”. They will be forensically investigating the posters, as well as examining CCTV footage and talking to students and staff in an attempt to track down the perpetrators.

The posters are part of a wider trend of increasing anti-Semitism which seems to be taking hold across the country. In Stamford Hill, London, police are investigating after graffiti saying “death to da jew” was found scrawled across a window ledge.

A spokesman from the Campaign Against Antisemitism said: “This is a worrying and disturbing thing to see at a British university at a time when the number of recorded antisemitic incidents is rising, and when Jewish people are actively being targeted and killed in Europe and beyond.

“We have heard from a Jewish student organisation that they’ve had students express their discomfort and alarm at seeing a poster of Hitler suggesting support for Nazism. The reaction of the police and university must be serious and tough in order to reassure Jews and non-Jews alike that this will not be tolerated. The perpetrators of his hate crime must be found and brought to justice with zero tolerance.”

Sergeant David Cotter from West Midlands Police told the Campaign Against Antisemitism: “We take reports of hate crime extremely seriously and are working closely with the university to make it a safe place for everyone who works and studies there. This kind of behaviour is offensive and completely unacceptable and our investigation to identify those responsible is already progressing.”

Deborah Walker, Head of Communications at the University of Birmingham said: “We unreservedly condemn racist graffiti on campus. We have reported the matter to West Midlands Police and are working with them to identify those involved.

“Our University is a community of 150 nations and we are proud to be situated in a vibrant multi-cultural city. Discrimination of any kind will not be tolerated. We are therefore actively working with a range of groups to bring people together and ensure that our university is a place where diversity is celebrated and everyone plays their part in creating a vibrant and welcoming community.”

10 REASONS WHY HITLER WAS ONE OF THE GOOD GUYS

  • May 4, 2014

We chose this blog by DIGGER because it outlays 10 Reasons why Hitler was one of the Good Guys, and since Digger here has already nailed it, we feel there isn’t much really more to be said other than reading this post and considering a few things that may at first be totally absurd and mind-boggling.

Initially I had intended creating a piece titled “10 Myths about Hitler” but decided that there were so many, that I switched topic slightly.

I understand like most of my work, these areas outlined only give a flavor and are not conclusively resourced. But that’s OK. It’s a carrot and hopefully just enough for people (even skeptics) to do their own research on these controversial areas. When people find things out for themselves, this has much more substance. All these areas are verifiable. They just take a bit objective, independent research. There are links at the bottom of the page to help one’s research.

1/. He never wanted to kill any Jews

Whenever you hear anyone espouse (repeat) the lies about Hitler the nasty Jew-killer. Please always make a point of asking this very simple question: “Where did you get that information from?”

Perhaps we all at some point have repeated this fable. Why would we not, when it’s shoved down our throats 24/7, year in year out for decades(?) There hasn’t been a man on this planet who has been demonized as much as Herr Hitler.

If Hitler wanted to kill Jews, why oh why throughout all his speeches and manuscripts and his book Mein Kampf did he not mention this? Did he just forget? No, he didn’t say or write it BECAUSE HE HAD NO INTENTION OF KILLING THE JEWS.

No matter what amount of destruction he had observed done by the Jews to his people; he had enough self-discipline and ethical code not to take revenge. Being a strong character, he was able to rise above the darkness, the demonic standards of the Judaic mindset and show self-restraint and humility.

That is why he created ‘containment work camps’ for the Jews and certainly NOT death camps.

2/. He cared about conditions for the Jews in the work camps

Unbeknown to billions of people the Nazi camps were not death camps, nor were they places to carry out human experiments. They were simply containment camps. Something had to be done with these destructive anti-social Jews who were strangling Germany. Thanks to the Jews, Germany had lost it’s moral code and had become debased and de-cultured, does that ring a bell?

Something had to be done! And Hitler did do something – he placed all the Jews in containment camps to allow Germany to breath again. But – this is the key point in this essay/piece. He did it in a way which was ethical. The camps had decent sufficient food (bearing in mind it was war time), they had theaters, swimming pools, football pitches, post offices where inmates could communicate to the outside world, kindergartens, art and music recreation and even prostitutes.

Quality sanitation within the camps was paramount and that is why the inmates clotheswere regularly de-loused with Zyklon B gas. There were no human gas chambers……THAT IS A BIG FAT KOSHER LIE; to which the world has had to endure for over half a century.

My theory is that if there had not have been a war effort, Hitler would not have even made the Jews work. AND I bet you the containment camps would have been luxury rehabilitation centers. In order to slowly de-programme the Jews from their mind control cult.

3/. He had compassion for other sentient beings

Many historians claim he was a vegetarian. I believe this is true, but whether this it is or not, the point is he had a clear connection and affection for his fellow creatures. I’m not suggesting just because he may have been a veggie that therefore he was a good person; but this was a man of compassion and that he recognised the importance of compassion in society. He had so much affection for his German shepherds (picture above with his beloved dog). He banned all animal experimentation, recocnising it to be evil. Hitler could see the connection between all life forms. It was his level of consciousness. Respect for nature, animals and human life.

4/. He tried to prevent the destruction of his fellow Europeans

Numerous occasions Hitler tried to warn and assist his fellow brethren about the Jewish trap they had fallen for and who really was behind all the warmonger. He dropped fliers from planes trying in vein to prevent Germany and Britain fighting. He initially wanted to make alliances with Britain. Many occasions he gave opportunities to opposing European forces, where he could have slaughtered them. It was his internal spiritual angst for him to be fighting (defending) amongst his European brothers and sisters. He did all he could to avoid war, he was not the warmonger we all have been led to believe.

5/. He cared passionately about his people and German heritage 

Hitler observed the degrading machinations of the Jews in Austria and Germany. It not only disgusted and angered him, but saddened him to see how these two nations were being destroyed from the inside out like a cancer – a cancer that his sleepy folksmen could not see. The exact same angst those of us who are Jew-conscious find ourselves in. He was a man who cared about society, a man who cared about culture, who cared about nature, about moral values and about building and improving as opposed to destroying and degrading.

He was a man who had fought for his country, in the trenches and been hospitalized for his country. How many of our sell out politicians today can claim that? He was a true spokesman of the people, for the people who had diligently worked his way up from grass roots. From microcosmic pep talks to his fellow workman on building sites, to talks in beer houses, to speeches in basements, to town halls. As well as all the behind-the-scenes work and risks. Slung in jail, mocked and defamed. Endless tireless work to resolve the destruction of his peoples.

I would also strongly suggest he cared about all peoples. Yes, including black people, despite the kosher myth he was a supremacist racist.

6/. He was a humble man, from a humble background

Can any of us name one present western politician who can claim that these days? No, today they’re all criminals, fed through the kosher criminal system. All built on materialistic gain and kudos. All content with serving the beast for their demonic and self-serving interests. Their greed and hubris having no boundaries.

Hitler worked on building sites as a laborer for crying out loud. How many of these leaches under the guise of politicians do you know have that background? He was also a humble street artist, barely scraping a living together. Some days he had to decide whether to spend his meager earnings on a political book, or to eat – he opted for the former. Now that is passion in politics and a drive for social reform.

7/. He held correspondence with Mahatma Gandhi

This alone doesn’t necessarily suggest he was a good person. But more that Gandhi and Hitler were in alignment on many issues. They both recognized the evil force they were up against and both were coming from a humanitarian position. The bottom line is Gandhi would not have corresponded with a so-called evil mad dictator hell bent on wanting to kill the Jews and rule the world.

8/. He was a man of God

Hitler was NOT an atheist – despite what the Jewish propaganda machine wants us to believe. He often made references to God and spoke in terms of a Divinity. He was somebody who could clearly make the connection between Divine law and Natural laws. He was spiritually and morally driven throughout all his political career. Read his book Mein Kampf to see his consistent reference to Christian values.

k

9/. He implemented cultural and social reform

Throughout Hitler’s political career, his common theme was about ‘cleaning up’. He had seen the filth the Jews had created and desperately wanted Germany to reverse these degrading trends. He banned supermarkets, because he wanted local small businesses to prosper. He banned degrading modern art, as he recognised it for what it was. He banned vivisection (animal experiments), because in his wisdom he could see how futile and unnecessary they were.

He encouraged healthy youth activities and social programmes to enhance cultural pride and individual self worth, such as sports and recreational activities. He encouraged men to be men and women to be feminine. He helped develop beauty, cleanliness and pride back into the Germany people.

10/. He stamped on usury

This subject links in most of the points in this list and what Hitler achieved as a leader. But I thought it was essential that this topic was highlighted in isolation, as it was probably the single most important act of bravery and compassion Hitler offered to his people. Unfortunately this act alone was enough to piss off the Jewish IMF and therefore create WW2.

Usury is the elite Jews most powerful and demonic weapon amongst their whole armament of destructive weapons. More powerful than their poisons and even their mind control techniques. Because it’s their use of compound interest that enables them to create a stranglehold on every industry and therefore every level of society. Nobody can escape usury – everybody is infected by it.

That is why Hitler created his own independent currency as a first move when he came to power. And hey presto – that is why Germany was able to get back on it’s feet and flourish as all nations should. Hitler recognised the judaic invention of usury as unlawful, ungodly and unnatural – and as a talmudic curse which has crippled every host nation the Jews have entered into and ultimately, that which brings about their demise.

Hitler freed his people of this curse.

In Conclusion

Hitler was probably the hero of the second world war and the 21st century. A man of ethical courage, a man of spiritual perception and good intent. A spiritual soul who cared – cared about all life forms, all cultures, about goodness and Light and ultimately about Truth.

Because he was one of the good guys.

12 Things You Were Not Told About Adolph Hitler and Nazi Germany

Meme for the Millennia: Hitler Was Right

adolf-hitler-we-should-have-listened

Nothing makes me laugh harder (or a Jew cry more tears) than seeing comments that simply repeat the meme: Hitler Was Right (or some variation thereof).

I suggest that everyone push this meme as much as they can all of the time. I don’t know of any other phrase that sums up our current world better than those three words.

Most don’t respond to logical arguments better than memes anyway, so why not just plaster that one everywhere?

What will people do, try and argue that Hitler wasn’t right? That could lead to nothing but fun.

Last century was clearly the Jewish Century, but this one, once the Truth is finally out, will be the Hitler Century, as the late Michael Collins Piper often said (it was even the title of a book he was working on in the final years of his life).

Well, it will either be the Hitler Century or it will be the end of the world – I can assure you of that – because we certainly won’t survive another Jewish one.

Hero Adolf Eichmann Defended by Daughter-in-Law: Jews Faked History

Andrew Anglin
Daily Stormer
October 26, 2015

Carmen Bretin Lindemann
Carmen Bretin Lindemann

In the modern cesspit, everything is upside down. Heroes are condemned and inhuman monsters are promoted as exemplary human beings.

Newsweek:

Carmen Bretin Lindemann was a mayoral candidate in the Argentinian village of Garupa until she defended her father-in-law—the late Nazi war criminal Adolf Eichmann—on television last week, the Jewish Telegraphic Agency reported.

“The history that you know is not the real one. The version that you know from movies and books is written by the Jews, and all the world accepts that history,” she said during the interview with the TN news channel, which aired October 21. “He wasn’t a bad person; he obeyed orders and did not personally kill anyone.”

Lindemann reportedly referred to Eichmann as “Grandpa” during the interview, but the war criminal is better known as the man whoengineered the deportations of hundreds of thousands of Jews to Nazi extermination centers. He was captured in 1960 by agents of the Mossad, Israel’s spy agency, in Argentina and brought to trial in Jerusalem, where he was found guilty and then hanged on June 1, 1962.

It was never explained why the Mossad was allowed to kidnap people in Argentina, by the way. Argentina complained to the UN that Jews weren’t allowed to kidnap and torture people in their country, but the UN, as is their policy, did absolutely nothing.

At least they never got Mengele. Filthy terrorist kikes.

Eichmann’s daughter-in-law was expelled from the party she represented, United for a New Alternative, after her television interview went on the air. She said in a statement Thursday, “In order to not hurt my fellow party members in the alliance, my immediate resignation is necessary. I want to assure the public that I don’t and never did support the Nazis.”

DAIA, an umbrella organization for Argentina’s Jewish community, condemned Lindemann’s remarks. “We strongly condemn the position of this candidate,” DAIA President Julio Schlosser said in a statement in Spanish posted to the DAIA website, which was put through translation software. The organization rejected “any possibility that a person with this kind of racist and xenophobic ideas is even a candidate. In our country there is no room for these kinds of thoughts and such people.”

She shouldn’t have apologized, of course, or rather said she didn’t support Nazis. But you know – women.

It would have made the most sense to keep on with it, to continue to explain these lies, to say she will form her own party. People like people who do not back down and do not apologize. No one else does this but Whites, and when Whites refuse to do it, they virtually always win.

The idea that you should go through your life with the explicit goal of never hurting anyone’s feelings is nonsensical. If truth hurts people’s feelings, than so be it.

Throughout his trial in Israel (after which he was hanged, like a rapist), Eichmann repeatedly made the
Throughout his trial in Israel (after which he was hanged, like a rapist), Eichmann repeatedly made the “oh yes, kikes, you’re going to get yours” face. It’s our duty to make sure this happens.

Throughout his “trial” in Israel, Eichmann repeatedly mocked the stupid Jew hoax, and trolled all of the kikes. At one point he made the claim that a place where gassed Jews had been “hurriedly buried” blood spouted up and “looked like a ghoulish fountain.”

Clearly, he made these statements so as they could later be constructed by historians as trolling of dumb Jewish kikes. It is physically impossible for blood to squirt out of the ground like a fountain, but the Jews recorded this like “oh my God yes, we knew all along that must have happened.”

Never forget Adolf Eichmann, a great hero crucified by Jew terrorists.

There is the comb, the cigarette holder and the house keys he had on him when he was captured; the needle used to sedate him during his abduction from Argentina to Israel; and the booth in which he sat during his trial.

Israel’s intelligence agency, the Mossad, has lifted a veil of secrecy to display publicly for the first time documents, equipment, artefacts and personal testimonies relating to the capture, abduction and trial of Adolf Eichmann, the Nazi war criminal who was hanged in Israel almost 50 years ago.

Operation Finale, an exhibition at the Museum of the Jewish People in Tel Aviv, is curated by a serving Mossad officer, who can only be named as Avner A. Ninety per cent of the material on display comes from the Mossad archives, the first time in the agency’s history that it has opened its vaults.

The exhibition includes espionage equipment, such as a camera hidden in a briefcase and items used to forge documents and number plates; the original Mossad file on Eichmann, handwritten on yellowing paper; and the booth in which he sat during his trial. It discloses that the target was identified by his ears.

Eichmann was in charge of implementing Hitler’s Final Solution for the Jewish people, in which six million people died. After the war he was captured by Allied forces but escaped and fled to Argentina. There, a Holocaust survivor whose daughter was dating Eichmann’s son became suspicious about the identity of the boy’s father, and Israeli intelligence was alerted.

A complicated operation, involving about a dozen agents, most now dead, was prepared and executed in May 1960. Eichmann, who was living in Buenos Aires under the alias Ricardo Klement, was surreptitiously photographed and the images compared to those from his SS file. From the shape of his ears it was concluded that Eichmann and Klement were the same person.

He was bundled into a car on his way home from work by a team of Mossad agents. One of them, Rafi Eitan, who attended last week’s opening of the exhibition, described in video testimony what happened. “Eichmann’s head was in my lap,” he said. The agent examined his body for known scars and said he felt ecstatic when he found them.

Eichmann was taken to a safe house. Asked to identify himself, he first gave a German alias, then his Argentinian identity. On the third time of asking, he responded: “I am Adolf Eichmann. This is indeed my name.” Then, recalled Eitan, he asked for a glass of wine.

An elaborate plan to spirit him out of he country without alerting the Argentinian authorities was put into action. An El Al plane brought an official Israeli delegation to Buenos Aires as a cover for taking the high-value target back. He was passed off as a sick airline employee, dressed in an El Al uniform and heavily sedated in a first class seat.

Luba Volk, now in her 80s, played an unwitting part in the abduction. A former El Al employee who had relocated to Buenos Aires, she was contacted by the airline and asked to help secure documentation for the flight. She had no idea of its true purpose.

After the news emerged of Eichmann’s capture and removal from Argentina, Volk was forced to leave the country and return to Israel. “My name was on all the documentation,” she said, while visiting the exhibition this week. “I was very proud I took part, but I had one great regret – that I didn’t know what I was doing while I was doing it.”

Fifty years on, the exhibition illustrates what now appears to be primitive methods of espionage. There were no computers on which to store and cross-reference information or create forged documents; no means of communication between agents on the ground; and little surveillance at Buenos Aires airport, either of the Mossad agents bringing bulky equipment in battered suitcases or of Eichmann being smuggled out of the country.

David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister, announced the capture to the Israeli parliament and a stunned world. Eichmann was charged with 15 counts of crimes against the Jewish people, crimes against humanity, war crimes and membership of a hostile organisation.

After a trial lasting eight months, during which 99 Holocaust survivors gave evidence, Eichmann was sentenced to death and hanged on 31 May 1962 – the only time in Israel’s history that the death penalty has been enacted. His body was cremated and the ashes scattered at sea, beyond Israel’s territorial waters.

Avinoam Armoni, the museum’s director, said the episode was crucial in shaping Israel’s identity. “Until the Eichmann trial no one [in Israel] really spoke about the horrors of the Holocaust. Many survivors kept silent, even to their children,” he said.

The trial had been a life-changing event for people like him, born immediately after the war. “It was like a dam opening. I remember sitting, glued to the radio. I grew up saying I’m not a Jew, I’m an Israeli – and suddenly we were confronted with this story.” The exhibition, he hoped, would help to keep the story in the collective consciousness of the Israeli people.

Micky Goldman, an Auschwitz survivor who became a policeman in the new state of Israel, joined the investigation unit which gathered evidence against Eichmann. He also testified at the trial and witnessed Eichman’s execution.

“I had no grudge against him,” he said in video testimony for the exhibition. “I knew back then and I know it to this day that a human being cannot avenge what the Germans had done to us. I perceived him as a tool through which I could learn the truth about the Holocaust. Apart from that, he was nothing to me. He, who sent me to Auschwitz.”

The exhibition has had an unbelievable response since opening last week, Armoni said. After it ends in April, the organisers hope to take it abroad.

Avner A, the curator with 25 years service as a Mossad agent, says the story is still incomplete. “Every day I find something new, often from small stories of people coming to see the exhibition,” he said. “My role is to find all these small pieces and put them together. I am still investigating. We still don’t have the whole story. But this is as close as we can get.”

Jewish Conspiracy Theory, the Eichmann Testimony and the Holocaust: Deborah Lipstadt’s Contribution to Holocaust Revisionism

Paul Grubach

Copyright 2011

(Note: Page numbers in parentheses cited in the following essay refer to The Eichmann Trial, by Deborah E. Lipstadt, Schocken Books, New York, 2011.)

In the interests of fairness and truth, this review was sent to Deborah Lipstadt and Christopher Browning prior to its publication here. They were asked to correct any statements that they believe to be false or misleading. No response from either has been received by press time.

Introduction

Deborah E. Lipstadt, Dorot Professor of Modern Jewish History and Holocaust Studies at Emory University (Atlanta, Georgia) and widely known for her assaults on “Holocaust denial,” has once again made headlines with the release of The Eichmann Trial. This interesting but flawed book is Lipstadt’s analysis of the issues surrounding the famous capture and trial in Israel of SS Lieutenant-Colonel Adolf Eichmann, and the dramatic effect that “Holocaust Survivor” courtroom testimony had upon world-wide opinion. April 11, 2011 marked a half century since the beginning of “this trial of the century,” and the book’s release was presumably timed to commemorate it. It has been said that The Eichmann Trial consolidates Deborah Lipstadt’s standing as one of the major figures in the present-day Jewish world.

Lipstadt is considered by many to be an important Holocaust scholar; she served as a consultant to the team planning the United States Holocaust Memorial Museum (p.ix), and authored three books dealing with the Jewish experience during the Second World War. Since the early 1990s, this pro-Zionist academic who delights in her Jewish identity (p. 186) has been recognized as the most prominent opponent of “Holocaust denial,” a pejorative term meant to demonize Holocaust revisionism, the historical movement contending there was no Nazi plan to exterminate the Jews during the Second World War, the “Nazi gas chambers” never existed, and the claim of six million murdered Jews is a gross exaggeration. For a Holocaust revisionist critique of Deborah Lipstadt and her views, I refer the reader to my essay.1

In early 2000, Lipstadt’s notoriety was firmed up by the high-profile libel case brought by British historian David Irving. Irving, who lost the case, charged that he was libeled when Lipstadt labeled him a “Holocaust denier” in her attack upon the revisionist movement, Denying History: The Growing Assault on Truth and Memory.2 Her rendition of this headline grabbing case, History on Trial: My Day in Court with David Irving, was a National Jewish Book Award winner.

Her latest endeavor, The Eichmann Trial, begins with an Introduction that discusses the court battle with Irving and the “Holocaust denial” movement, and then moves into issues other than the Eichmann case. Before we discuss the trial and testimony of Adolf Eichmann, some other important subjects that Lipstadt addresses must be examined.

Was Simon Wiesenthal a Jewish-Zionist Conspirator?

Lipstadt points out that world famous “Nazi Hunter” Simon Wiesenthal (1908-2005) exaggerated his role in the Eichmann capture (pp.5-8). However, she is even more disturbed about Wiesenthal’s lies about Holocaust history, which others have also brought to the public’s attention. To prevent any misunderstanding, we will let Lipstadt tell the story:

“Wiesenthal’s aggrandizement of his role in the Eichmann capture is far less disturbing and historiographically significant than another of his inventions. In an attempt to elicit non-Jewish interest in the Holocaust, Wiesenthal decided to broaden the population of victims—even though it meant falsifying history. He began to speak of eleven million victims: six million Jews and five million non-Jews. Holocaust historian Yehuda Bauer immediately recognized that this number made no historical sense. Who, Bauer wondered, constituted Wiesenthal’s five million (p.8)?”

Lipstadt attempted to clarify the situation with this comment: “In fact, this figure [five million “murdered” Gentiles] is too high if one is counting victims who were targeted exclusively for racial reasons, but too low if one counts the total number of victims the Nazi regime killed outside military operations (p.8).” She goes on to claim that the number of non-Jewish victims of an alleged “Nazi plan” to mass murder people on “racial or ideological” grounds was much less than five million.

Lipstadt then continues with this most revealing storyline: “Wiesenthal admitted to Bauer that he had invented a historical fantasy in order to give the Holocaust a more universal cast and to find a number which was almost as large as the Jewish death toll but not quite equal to it. When Elie Wiesel challenged Wiesenthal to provide some historical proof that five million non-Jews were murdered in the camps, Wiesenthal, rather than admit that he invented the five million number, accused Wiesel of ‘Judeocentrism,’ being concerned only about Jews (p.9).”

Why is this admission of such importance? One of the standard charges leveled against Holocaust revisionism by Deborah Lipstadt is that it is a groundless “conspiracy theory.” She describes “Holocaust deniers” as “a group motivated by a strange conglomeration of conspiracy theories, delusions, and neo-Nazi tendencies.”3 Consider her attack upon Professor Arthur Butz’s Holocaust revisionist classic, The Hoax of the Twentieth Century: “Despite its veneer of impartial scholarship, Butz’s book is replete with the same expressions of traditional anti-Semitism, philo-Germanism and conspiracy theory as the Holocaust denial pamphlets printed by the most scurrilous neo-Nazi groups.”4

In her Denying the Holocaust, Lipstadt defined “conspiracy” as “premeditated distortions introduced for political ends.”5 So, by Lipstadt’s own criteria, Wiesenthal could be considered a Jewish-Zionist conspirator, because he told the world a premeditated distortion (that five million non-Jews were murdered by the National Socialists) in order to serve a political goal (gain non-Jewish interest in the Holocaust, an ideology that serves the needs of political Zionism).

The Power of a Jewish Zionist to Spread Holocaust Falsehood: Wiesenthal’s Fabrication and President Jimmy Carter

The story of Wiesenthal’s invented historical fantasy has an even more important twist. It became “accepted wisdom” among many powerful and influential groups (p.10). We let Lipstadt pick up the story here:

“At the first Holocaust memorial commemoration in the Capitol Rotunda, both President Jimmy Carter and Vice President Mondale referred to the ‘eleven million victims.’ Carter also used Wiesenthal’s figures of ‘six million Jews and five million others’ in his Executive Order establishing the United States Holocaust Memorial Council. I have attended Holocaust memorial commemorations in places as diverse as synagogues and army forts where eleven candles were lit. More significant is that strangers have repeatedly taken me and other colleagues to task for ignoring the five million non-Jews. When I explain that this is an invented concept, they become convinced of my ethnocentrism (p.10).”

The influential Simon Wiesenthal invented a historical fantasy, and the most powerful man on the planet, the president of the United States, ends up repeating it—a tribute to the ability of a Jewish-Zionist to propagate a myth! The reader should ask himself: how many millions of Americans believe the myth that the Germans murdered five million non-Jews because the President of the United States said that it was “true”? Ironically, in her 1993 anti-Revisionist tome she castigated Arthur Butz for claiming that Jews have the power to manipulate governments.6 According to Lipstadt’s 2011 book, however, Wiesenthal’s Holocaust falsehood carried enough “moral” authority to manipulate the most powerful figure in the US government into being a mouthpiece for it!

The Eichmann Trial actually confirms as true what Lipstadt stridently condemns about Holocaust revisionism. She writes:

“Deniers [Holocaust revisionists] build their pseudo-arguments on traditional anti-Semitic stereotypes and imagery. They contend that Jews created the myth of the Holocaust in order to bilk the Germans out of billions of dollars and ensure the establishment of Israel. Once again the devious Jews have harmed innocent multitudes—Germans and Palestinians in particular—for the sake of their own financial and political ends. To someone nurtured by the soil of anti-Semitism, this makes perfect sense (p. xx).”

Nevertheless, Lipstadt partially validated and made some sense of a traditional “anti-Semitic stereotype.” According to her findings, Simon Wiesenthal did create a myth of a non-Jewish Holocaust for the sake of Jewish ends: he wanted to gain non-Jewish interest in the Holocaust ideology. This devious fabricator did harm the Germans—he slandered them by falsely claiming they murdered five million Gentiles. I can vividly recall that in decades past a non-Jew would be tagged with the dreaded “anti-Semite” label if he dared suggest in a mainstream publication that Simon Wiesenthal was a “Jewish Conspirator.”

Lipstadt’s Double Standard and Possible Motives

The “Five Million Murdered Gentiles” Myth also demonstrates two other points: how intellectuals like Lipstadt have infused the Holocaust issue with a hypocritical double standard, and how the Holocaust ideology changes according to the propaganda needs of the moment. According to her criteria, it is “morally acceptable” to question, debate and repudiate the story that the Nazis murdered five million non-Jews. Yet, according to the same standards, that the Nazis murdered around six million Jews is “not a matter of debate.”7 It is “an established fact that needs no validation (p.222n23).” What lies behind this double standard?

A passage from Lipstadt’s 1993 Denying the Holocaust may shed light upon her present-day motives. She opined: “There is a psychological dimension to the deniers’ and minimizers’ [Holocaust revisionists’] objectives: The general public tends to accord victims of genocide a certain moral authority. If you devictimize a people you strip them of their moral authority, and if you can in turn claim to be a victim, as the Poles and Austrians often try to do, that moral authority is conferred on or restored to you.”8

While one can only theorize about Lipstadt’s real motive, her lack of objectivity with regard to other aspects of the Holocaust suggests that correcting the historical record may not be her true intention. Perhaps fearing that non-Jewish groups (e.g., the Poles) who often are in conflict with the Jews may be accorded moral authority by their inclusion in the Holocaust, the ethnocentric Lipstadt may be attempting to strip them of this by devictimizing them, and thereby enabling the Jewish community to gain all of the “moral authority” that the Holocaust ideology has to offer. In other words, she may want to capture all the sympathy and aggrandizement the Holocaust ideology has to offer for her fellow Jews, and not share a bit of it with any potential non-Jewish enemy.9

Are Holocaust Lies an Existential Threat to Non-Jews?: The Motivation of Holocaust Revisionists

Lipstadt speaks of the two different reactions to Holocaust revisionism coming from her community: “Some find the overt anti-Semitism of Holocaust deniers the ranting of idiots who are best ignored. Others take these comments quite seriously and see a dire and existential threat to Jewish well-being. They see a Holocaust-denying president of a large country, one that is poised to have nuclear weapons, occupying the podium of a world forum that was founded in the wake of the Final Solution with a mandate to stop genocide. They hear him deny the Final Solution and threaten the existence of the Jewish state (p.xxvii).”

Some of what she writes actually sheds light upon the legitimate motives of many Holocaust revisionists. Just as many Jews perceive Holocaust revisionism as a threat to Jewish well-being, so too does a growing number of Europeans (especially Germans), Euro-Americans, Christians, Palestinians, Muslims and Iranians see Holocaust falsehoods (such as Simon Wiesenthal’s “Five Million Murdered Gentiles” Myth) as a threat to the well-being of their people.10

In the above passage Lipstadt makes an obvious reference to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. The Holocaust ideology has been invoked by pro-Zionist American politicians like former Vice Presidential Candidate Sarah Palin, Senator John McCain and former President George W. Bush as a “justification” for a future Israeli and/or American attack upon Iran. In their view, in order to prevent another Holocaust of the Jews, Iranian nuclear facilities must be destroyed. Although Ahmadinejad espoused revisionist ideas before these political figures linked an attack upon his country with the Holocaust, he may have correctly perceived that Holocaust falsehood would ultimately end up as a dire and existential threat to the well-being of his people. Ahmadinejad’s revisionism is actually in the best interests of Iran—it exposes the Holocaust falsehoods that are used to “validate” an attack upon the Iranian nation.11

Lipstadt speculates on the motivation of Holocaust revisionists: “The indispensable element of the ideology of both [Holocaust] perpetrators and [Holocaust] deniers is a deep-seated Jew hatred (p.129).” She confuses “hatred” with “moral outrage.” The responsible Revisionists that I associate with do not “hate Jews.” Just as Lipstadt would probably tell you that her indignation over Wiesenthal’s Holocaust lie motivated her to expose it, Revisionists too are outraged by the Holocaust lies they are inundated with and which, in turn, they feel motivated to expose. Unfortunately, possibly due to the Jewish ethnocentrism that others see within her, (p.10) Lipstadt is unwilling to acknowledge this.

Let us now turn to the central issues of Lipstadt’s book—the Eichmann testimonials and his world famous trial in Israel.

Adolf Eichmann on Trial

The Importance of Adolf Eichmann

Adolf Otto Eichmann was an SS Lieutenant-Colonel and Head of the Jewish Office of the Gestapo during the Second World War. According to the traditional Holocaust story, he is said to have a played a seminal role in the “Final Solution,” the alleged National Socialist plan to exterminate the Jews of Europe. At the end of the war he escaped to Argentina, where he was captured by Israeli agents in May 1960. He was transported to Israel, subjected to a show “trial,” and then executed on May 31, 1962. The testimonies of the former commandant of Auschwitz, Rudolf Höss, along with the memoirs of Eichmann are an important portion of the evidence for the traditional view of the Holocaust. For those who have transformed the Holocaust into a sacred religion, Adolf Eichmann has remained one of the most enduring symbols of Holocaust evil.12

Does Lipstadt Employ a Hypocritical Double Standard on the Race Issue?

Lipstadt argues that Eichmann was a dedicated National Socialist who ardently believed in its ideology. “This was a well-read man who accepted and espoused the idea of racial purity,” she writes (p.164). What Lipstadt fails to tell the reader is that, in this respect, she is similar to Eichmann: she too accepts and espouses some type of racial purity for her “Jewish race.”

As Jewish author Ellen Jaffe McClain pointed out in Embracing the Stranger: Intermarriage and the Future of the American Jewish Community, Lipstadt is flatly opposed to intermarriage between Jews and non-Jews. In McClain’s own words:

“Although people like Deborah Lipstadt, the Emory University professor who has written and lectured widely on Holocaust denial, have exhorted Jewish parents to just say no to intermarriage, much the way they expect their children not to take drugs, a large majority of parents (and more than a few rabbis) are unable to lay down opposition to intermarriage [between Jews and non-Jews] as a strict operating principle.”13

At the Irving/Lipstadt trial in winter-spring of 2000, historian Irving was labeled a “racist” because he was accused of opposing the intermarriage between Whites and non-Whites. Even D.D. Guttenplan, an anti-Irving journalist who covered the trial, hinted at the racial double standard at work here. He wrote: “[I]t was hard not to feel queasy listening to Rampton [the defense attorney for Lipstadt] quiz Irving about his attitude to ‘intermarriage between the races’—on behalf of a defendant who has written, ‘We [Lipstadt and her fellow Jews] know what we fight against: anti-Semitism and assimilation [of Jews and non-Jews], intermarriage [between Jews and non-Jews] and Israel-bashing.”14

Lipstadt’s opposition to intermarriage and assimilation between Jews and non-Jews is consistent with the view that, just like Eichmann, she espouses racial purity for her ethnic group.

Christopher Browning and the Eichmann Testimony

Christopher R. Browning is the Frank Porter Graham Professor of History at the University of North Carolina–Chapel Hill. The author of numerous books and papers on Nazism and the Jewish experience during World War II, he is widely considered to be a leading expert on the “Final Solution.”

Browning testified at the David Irving–Penguin Books/Deborah Lipstadt libel trial in London in 2000, perhaps the most famous Holocaust court case since the Eichmann Trial in 1961. Considering Professor Browning’s current stature among academic historians and his importance to the defense of Lipstadt’s Holocaust beliefs, one should consider very carefully whatever he writes about Adolf Eichmann.

In his highly praised 2004 book, The Origins of the Final Solution, Browning gently offered this cautionary caveat about Eichmann’s testimony: “As with any detailed eyewitness testimonies after so many years, Eichmann’s various accounts differ from one another and are not free of puzzling contradictions with other evidence.”15

What Browning wrote in an obscure 2003 essay, “Perpetrator Testimony: Another Look at Adolf Eichmann”, about the untrustworthiness of the SS Lieutenant-Colonel’s memoirs is even more revealing: “Even more than most memoirs,” our Holocaust historian pointed out, “the Eichmann testimonies, both before and after capture, are consciously calculated attempts at self-representation, self-justification, and legal defense. It must be said as emphatically as possible that, at the core of these testimonies, there are three monstrous falsehoods that are central to his whole enterprise.”16 We will discuss the “three monstrous falsehoods” in a moment.

A Reason to be Skeptical of the Postcapture Eichmann Testimonials

For the sake of brevity, we will divide the Eichmann memoirs into two phases—those composed before his capture (precapture testimonies), and those composed while he was in Israeli custody (postcapture testimonies). Even if Browning and Lipstadt never made their devastating allegations in regard to the Eichmann memoirs, historians would have legitimate reason to be skeptical of anything that conforms to the Holocaust ideology in his postcapture testimonials. To-wit:

Lipstadt confirms that Eichmann was under tremendous psychological stress while in Israeli captivity: he trembled incessantly during the initial interrogation (p.44). After all, he was facing death by hanging, which in itself is a form of very stressful coercion. He “feared receiving the treatment that he had meted out (p.44).” On one occasion, when he was about to be taken from the interrogation room, he thought he was going to be shot. His knees buckled and he cried out in a pleading voice: “I have not told you everything yet (p.44).”

Lipstadt points out the severe disadvantages that Eichmann was subjected to during his pretrial interrogations: he was deprived of adequate legal counsel while his Israeli interrogators had an entire police bureau and prosecutorial team backing them up (p.44). Nevertheless, this does not stop Lipstadt from claiming that tapes of Eichmann’s testimony during his pretrial interrogations provided the world with “the most vivid and specific perpetrator-testimony about the murders that had thus far been heard in public (p.68).”

After his capture it is possible that Eichmann was coerced or bribed to give false testimony that supports traditional Holocaust claims. After all, Israel has a vested interest in promoting the Holocaust ideology, as the state is founded upon it.17 Another distinct possibility is that he gave false testimony in order to escape a death sentence, a strategy that we will explore more fully in a moment.

Of course, Eichmann may have been tortured, or mind-altering drugs may have been used to gain the testimony the Israelis wanted to hear. Lipstadt confirms that his Israeli captors drugged him before he was returned to Israel in order to make him more compliant: while he was on the flight from Argentina to Israel, he was in a semicomatose state (p.19).

Lipstadt relates a bizarre story that, if true, would demonstrate how submissive and compliant Eichmann had become to Israeli demands during captivity. So no one accuses me of making this up, I will let Lipstadt tell the story. While he was in Argentina, Eichmann’s captors “took Eichmann to the toilet. They waited outside. After a few minutes, Eichmann called out to [one of his captors], ‘Darf ich anfangen?’ (‘May I begin?’) Only when told yes did he begin to move his bowels (p.17).” During his interrogations and trial, however, Lipstadt claims that Eichmann was alert, argumentative, stubborn and anything but submissive (pp. 44, 107, 127, 136).

So, the pertinent question is: how reliable are the Eichmann testimonies? It is important to list what Browning claims are the three “monstrous falsehoods” in the Eichmann testimonies: (1) he was not an anti-Semite; (2) in his early career, from the mid-1930s until 1941, he wanted to help the Jews find a home for themselves; and finally, (3) with the outbreak of war “he was an utterly passive receiver of orders, who took no initiatives and made no decisions. He simply obeyed. He had nothing to do with killing Jews, though admittedly he played a minor role in their evacuation.”18 The mainstream “Final Solution” researcher adds that the Eichmann memoirs are plagued with other falsehoods: “In addition to these three colossal lies, Eichmann told innumerable little lies when confronted with a succession of incriminating documents and testimony…Eichmann was not a particularly subtle or skillful liar.”19

In The Eichmann Trial, Lipstadt cited this Browning essay, although she never informed the reader that this “Final Solution” expert exposed the Eichmann testimony as a faulty and unreliable historical source (p.177, p.219n47). Nevertheless, she wrote that Eichmann spewed forth a long series of lies (pp.128). Israeli interrogators insisted Eichmann was a liar (p.44), and he told “fables” and spewed forth “fantasies”(p.50).

By insisting that Eichmann was a liar and fabricator, Lipstadt has unwittingly given credence to one of David Irving’s theories about the Eichmann memoirs.

David Irving and the Eichmann Testimonials: Did Eichmann Concoct a Phony Hitler Order to Murder the Jews?

In the early 1990s, Lipstadt’s archenemy David Irving put forth a very plausible theory about the alleged Hitler order for the destruction of the Jews in the Eichmann memoirs. In July 1941, Eichmann maintained, he was summoned to Berlin to visit Reinhard Heydrich, the chief of the Reich Security Main Office (RSHA). Heydrich allegedly uttered to him the fateful words: “I’ve come from the Reichsführer SS [Heinrich Himmler]. The Führer [Adolf Hitler] has given the order for the physical destruction of the Jews.”20 Lipstadt gives the same story, only a much shorter version of it (p.68).

Irving then remarked: “I’ve always said, ‘Hitler wasn’t involved, whatever happened— Hitler gave no orders [for the physical extermination of the Jews], there’s no proof of it.’ Here we have Eichmann writing something very specific indeed. What is the explanation?”21

By 1958 Eichmann realized that he was being hunted; his days were numbered, Irving theorizes. He could be captured, arrested and put on trial at any time. The former head of the Jewish Office of the Gestapo had sleepless nights wondering how he was going to defend himself in court, how he was going to get off of the hook and escape the hangman’s noose. One possible way of escaping a death sentence was to claim that he was merely following orders. Irving hypothesized that Eichmann changed the wording of the statement that Heydrich actually uttered to him. He inserted into his memoirs this doctored and false statement: “The Führer has given the order for the physical destruction of the Jews.” By so doing, Eichmann placed the responsibility on Hitler in order to support his future courtroom defense that he had only been obeying the Führer’s commands.22

Browning’s colleague, Oxford history professor Richard Evans, attacked Irving by charging him with document manipulation. Evans alleged that Irving was simply rationalizing away evidence that does not fit his theories; he twisted and distorted the evidence in order to make it conform to his viewpoint.23 In light of what Browning has revealed about the Eichmann memoirs, this is a groundless smear.

As Browning pointed out, Eichmann’s memoirs are consciously calculated attempts at legal defense in court.24 In addition, at the core of Eichmann’s memoirs is the contention that Eichmann was a passive receiver of orders, a bureaucrat who took no initiatives and made no decisions. He simply obeyed the orders of his Führer.25Finally, the former lieutenant-colonel was also, according to Browning, a liar and falsifier of history.26

What Lipstadt writes in The Eichmann Trial supports Browning. In his pre-trial interrogations Eichmann claimed that he was “exclusively a carrier out of orders (p.43).” In Lipstadt’s own words: “He was not guilty, he insisted, because his superiors ordered him to do terrible things (p.43).” When Eichmann took the stand, he declared that he obeyed the orders of his superiors (p.110). Eichmann told the judges that he bore no guilt because he had to follow “orders by a supreme head of state (pp. 61, 131).”

If all of this is so, then it is perfectly logical for Irving to infer that Eichmann may have inserted in his memoirs the false statement that “the Führer has given the order for the physical destruction of the Jews.” It would simply be an example of a “falsifier of history” creating a plausible defense for his upcoming trial. Eichmann’s falsehood would have placed the responsibility on Hitler in order to support his future courtroom defense that he had only been obeying the Führer’s commands.27Indeed, Lipstadt opined, “it must have been clear to the judges that this man [Eichmann] would say anything if he thought it would clear him (p.124).”

Even many mainstream historians of the “Final Solution” disbelieve Eichmann’s “Hitler murder order” claim, for Browning admitted:

“When I [Browning] have suggested to my colleagues that we must take seriously Eichmann’s repeated testimony to the effect that he learned from Heydrich in the fall of 1941 of Hitler’s order for the physical destruction of the Jews, I have met with either embarrassed silence or open skepticism. How can I be so gullible? Don’t I know that Eichmann’s testimony is a useless conglomeration of faulty memories on the one hand and calculated lies for legal defense and self-justification on the other? From it we can learn nothing of value about what actually happened during the war, only about Eichmann’s state of mind after the war. These are documents that reveal how Eichmann wished to be remembered, not what he did.”28

Viewed in the light of what Christopher Browning and Deborah Lipstadt have written on the credibility of the Eichmann testimonials, Irving’s theory is not an attempt to “explain or rationalize away” evidence that refutes his theories. Contrary to what Evans charged, Irving’s theory is a logical inference and a plausible hypothesis: Eichmann may have concocted a phony Hitler order for the mass murder of Europe’s Jews as a desperate effort to avoid hanging.

More Evidence for the Holocaust Revisionist View of the Final Solution

Lipstadt and other “Holocaust experts” define the “Nazi Final Solution to the Jewish Question” in these terms: “The aim of The Final Solution was the destruction of the ‘entire Jewish people’ (p.141).” Elsewhere she is even more emphatic: “Killing all Jews—irrespective of age, location, education, profession, religious orientation, political outlook, or ethnic self-identification—was thepriority in the race war that Nazi Germany conducted (p.9).”

Lipstadt contradicts herself. During the Second World War the Hungarian government, which was allied with Germany, agreed to release forty thousand Jews who ultimately would be allowed to immigrate to Palestine (p.99). Eichmann opposed the plan, but Lipstadt points out that Hitler supported it (p.99)! These Jews were not going to be murdered in the “Hitler gas chambers.” This undermines Lipstadt’s claim that killing all Jews was the ultimate goal of Hitler’s Final Solution. Contradictions like this offer the reader another reason to reject the traditional view of the Holocaust and accept a Revisionist interpretation.

Eichmann and the “Nazi Gas Chambers”

During his pretrial interrogations by Israeli Police Inspector Avner Less, Eichmann spoke of his alleged observations of the “Nazi gas chambers.” Tape recordings of these statements were played in court (pp.67-68). We remind the reader that when Eichmann made these assertions he was deprived of legal counsel and was all alone with the interrogators (p.44). Was he under the influence of drugs? Was he coerced or bribed into making these statements? Did he make these statements to “please his captors” in the hope of escaping death by hanging?

Furthermore, The Eichmann Trial never informs its readers that Professor Browning virtually discredited Eichmann as a reliable “eyewitness” of the “Nazi gas chambers.” Rather than repeat this subject matter here, I refer the reader to my essay.29

As far back as 2003 Browning concluded: “Clearly, anyone who wants to dismiss Eichmann’s testimonies on the grounds of their demonstrated unreliability and shameless self-serving lies can easily do so, and many of my colleagues have done precisely this.”30 If historians in Browning and Lipstadt’s Holocaust camp have dismissed Eichmann’s testimonies because of their gross untrustworthiness, then Holocaust revisionists should do likewise—refuse to accept them as evidence for the “Nazi gas chambers” and an alleged Hitler plan to exterminate Europe’s Jews.

Was the Eichmann Trial a Zionist Show Trial?

Let us compare what Lipstadt has written about the Eichmann trial with what the online encyclopedia Wikipedia lists as characteristics of a “Show Trial.”31

  1. A “show trial” is a highly public affair. The Eichmann Trial opened on April 11, 1961 and it was broadcast by radio and television around the world, in addition to all of the press coverage it received (p.231). Lipstadt sums up a major consequence of the Eichmann affair: “Even though the Holocaust had been remembered and commemorated, never before had it received such consistent attention. Never had it been on the front pages of newspapers throughout the world, as it was during the trial. (p.192).”
  2. The guilt of the defendant in a “show trial” is determined beforehand. Eichmann’s lawyer Robert Servatius challenged the very legality of the proceedings and argued that Israel had no right to try Eichmann (pp.58-59). Lipstadt writes that the Israeli prosecutor Gideon Hausner “had no doubt that the judges would reject Servatius’s arguments no matter what he said (p.59).”
  3. A “show trial’s” main goal is to present the accusation and verdict to the public as an impressive example and warning. Israeli Prime Minister David Ben Gurion eventually came around to the idea that the trial would be used as a means to educate the Israeli public about the Holocaust (p.28). Prosecutor Hausner “wanted the trial to capture the imagination of Israelis, among others, and give them a personal sense of what had happened (p.55).”
  4. Wikipedia writes: Such trials can exhibit scant regard for the principles of jurisprudence and even for the letter of the law.” Lipstadt describes trial characteristics that fit this description: “The prosecution would call a series of witnesses who had no connection with Eichmann. Some legal experts considered their testimony highly prejudicial and legally irrelevant. Much of it was based on hearsay, if not outright gossip (p.55).”
  5. In such flawed and largely phony judicial proceedings, defendants have little opportunity to justify themselves. During his pretrial interrogations Eichmann was deprived of adequate legal counsel, while his interrogators had an entire police bureau and prosecutorial team backing them up (p. 44). Lipstadt admits that Eichmann’s defense team was subjected to severe legal disadvantages during the duration of the entire trial (pp. 44-45).
  6. The defendants in such trials often sign statements under duress and/or suffer torture prior to appearing in the courtroom. Lipstadt confirms that Eichmann was under severe stress prior to the trial and during his interrogations (p.44). We also know that Eichmann was drugged by his Israeli captors (p.19). Could he have been drugged or coerced during his pre-trial interrogations while he faced his Israeli interrogators totally alone without the benefit of legal counsel?

Nevertheless, Lipstadt rejects the notion that this was a “show trial.” The Eichmann Trial presents the arguments of those who believe the trial was legally sound, and argues that the three judges were scrupulously fair (pp. 58-59, passim). “In fact,” Lipstadt avers, “giving the lie to any notion that this was a ‘show trial,’ throughout the proceedings the judges clashed with Hausner (p.121).” The judges and Eichmann’s defense attorney did expose at least one “Holocaust Survivor” as a false eyewitness, something defenders of the trial will say demonstrates the fairness of the Israeli legal system (p.99).

The three judges refused to let the trial degenerate into a total legal farce, like the show trials in the Stalinist Soviet Union and Communist Eastern Europe. After all, for the world to take it seriously, Israel could not afford to let the Eichmann trial to be viewed like the Stalinist show trials of the 1930s. Lipstadt reveals how successfully the divergent goals of both the judges and prosecutor ultimately serviced Zionist objectives: “The judges’ primary objective was to conduct a scrupulously fair legal proceeding that would win the respect of the world. Hausner’s goal was to tell the story of the Holocaust in all its detail, and in so doing, to capture the imagination not just of Israel’s youth and world Jewry, but of the entire world (p.121).”

False Eyewitness Testimony and the Eichmann Trial

To her credit, Lipstadt points out that many of the “Holocaust survivors” who stepped forward to testify at the Eichmann trial offered unreliable or false eyewitness testimony. A representative from Yad Vashem, Israel’s official Holocaust memorial, Rachel Auerbach, who screened this testimony, “recognized that just because they [“Holocaust survivors”] said that they had seen something did not ensure its reliability.” She observed that many of those who volunteered to testify were people who claimed to have ‘seen Eichmann’ at places where he had never been or where ‘no one could have identified him in those days.’ There were also those she described as ‘morbid publicity seekers (p.54).’” Nevertheless, Auerbach believed that most of those who offered to testify were “highly responsible people (p.54).” Lipstadt offers us reasons to doubt this.

Prosecutor Hausner was intent on proving that Eichmann, in addition to being a seminal figure behind the alleged Nazi plan to murder European Jewry, was also guilty of committing murder with his own hands. He was accused of shooting a child who tried to steal fruit from an orchard outside his villa in Hungary during the war (p.99). An alleged eyewitness to the “murder” testified against Eichmann. Lipstadt then makes this eye-opening revelation: “Ultimately, Hausner’s efforts regarding the murder were thwarted when questions posed by both Servatius [Eichmann’s defense attorney] and the judges proved that Avraham Gordon, whom Hausner called as the witness to the murder, could not have observed it (p.99).” We can now add Mr. Gordon to the long list of other “Holocaust survivors” who gave false testimony.

Holocaust Revisionists such as myself are thankful that Deborah Lipstadt—Holocaust Revisionism’s arch enemy no less!—has publicly made clear that much of this “Holocaust Survivor” testimony is false and unreliable.

Eichmann’s Testimony and the Wannsee Conference

According to the traditional Holocaust story, in January 1942 German leaders held a conference at Wannsee, a locality in southwestern Berlin, at which they planned the mass murder of Europe’s Jews. Eichmann wrote the minutes for this seminal meeting (p.227).

Israeli Judge Yitzhak Raveh questioned Eichmann about what was discussed at the Conference: “What […] was talked about there?” Eichmann answered: “The various possibilities for killing (p.132).” So, it would be logical to presume that mass murder in “gas chambers” would be a “possibility for killing” that was discussed. Nevertheless, Eichmann gave a different and seemingly conflicting response to another judge.

Judge Moshe Landau wanted to know why there was nothing in the minutes about the “methods of killing,” and the “specific killing methods, such as gas (p.136).” That is to say, Eichmann put nothing in the minutes about the “Nazi gas chambers.” German officials allegedly did not want “references to them to be widely circulated (pp.136-137).” Lipstadt writes: “No, Eichmann assured him [Judge Landau], there was no specific talk of killing methods (p.137).”

Let us get these inconsistencies perfectly straight. Eichmann tells Raveh that the various possibilities for killing were discussed, but he tells Landau that there was no specific talk of killing methods! The confusing and apparently contradictory nature of Eichmann’s two responses gives even the most hardcore believer in the traditional Holocaust story a reason to doubt that the “mass murder of Jews in gas chambers” was ever discussed at Wannsee. This further confirms what mainstream “Final Solution” historian Browning wrote back in 2003 about the unreliability of the Eichmann testimonials: “[T]he testimonies of especially [Rudolf] Höss [former commandant of Auschwitz concentration camp] and to some extent Eichmann are confused, contradictory, self-serving, and not credible.”32

A New Holocaust Myth?—“Specially Adapted Cement-Mixer Apparatuses”

According to the standard Holocaust story, after the Jews were gassed their corpses were burned in crematoriums, or thrown into mass graves and some time later were dug up and burned en masse in open-air cremations. To the best of my knowledge, no physical evidence of mass graves, with the corpses of murdered Jews, was ever shown to the court at Eichmann’s trial, nor was there any physical/forensic evidence of mass murder presented. Israeli authorities must have foreseen that the lack of physical evidence for Holocaust claims would be a cause for world-wide doubt, and something would have to be said to quell suspicion. Significantly, the prosecution provided “eyewitnesses” who claimed the Germans “destroyed” all of the physical evidence (pp. 53, 141). Lipstadt writes: “Leon Wells told of Operation 1005, the group of Jewish prisoners assigned to eradicate the evidence by opening mass graves and exhuming, burning, and pulverizing the bodies (p.87).”

The burning of bodies leaves behind a large amount of unburned bones and teeth, as the official historians of these concentration camps are clearly aware.33 Holocaust historian Yitzhak Arad declares that the bones of the hundreds of thousands of alleged murder victims at Chelmno concentration camp were “destroyed by a special bone-crushing machine.”34 Yet, on the next page, he quotes “Holocaust survivor” Leon Feldhendler who stated that at Sobibor concentration camp the bones were crushed into ashes with hammers.35

The Eichmann Trial tells another story regarding alleged corpse disposal on the part of the “German murderers.” Lipstadt refers to the work of Rachel Auerbach, the Holocaust researcher associated with Yad Vashem, who aided Prosecutor Hausner. During the Second World War, Auerbach’s interviews with escapees from Treblinka concentration camp alerted the world to the “Nazi mass murders” that were allegedly taking place (p.52). Lipstadt writes about Auerbach’s “discoveries”: “Long before Eichmann’s capture, Auerbach had conducted research on Operation 1005, the large-scale secret campaign to destroy evidence of the Final Solution by digging up the mass graves, pulverizing the bodies in specially adapted cement-mixer apparatuses, and erasing all traces of the atrocities. She also found two people who had participated as slave laborers in this effort (p.53).”

In the “authoritative” Holocaust history books consulted, I cannot find any mention of “specially adapted cement-mixer apparatuses” for the disposal of murdered Holocaust victims.36 There is not one iota of physical evidence to show that these devices ever existed. No one has ever found one to show the world, and no authentic engineering diagrams of these devices have ever been uncovered. If I am wrong, then it is up to Deborah Lipstadt to provide us with the physical evidence.

Did Lipstadt ever consider the possibility that the story of the “specially adapted cement-mixer apparatuses” is another concocted Holocaust tale, like the “steam chambers” of Treblinka, the “electrocution chambers” of Belzec, and the “soap factories” that utilized the bodies of dead Jews?37 Was the “cement mixer” story cooked up to account for the lack of physical evidence for the Holocaust? Keep in mind that, with the exposé of Simon Wiesenthal’s “Five Million Murdered Gentiles” Myth, Lipstadt confirmed that the Holocaust ideology contains deliberate falsehoods, which are intelligently designed to achieve definite political goals (pp.8-9).

Closing Statement

The influence of the Holocaust doctrine on post World War II thought and politics is one of the most spectacular examples in history of how a fallacious ideology for which there is no credible evidence can come to fashion the thinking of a whole society and dominate the outlook of an age. Lipstadt’s book gives the reader a glimpse how this all was accomplished.

She reveals the motivations of an influential Jew who created a Holocaust falsehood and turned it into “accepted fact.” The iconic “Nazi hunter” Simon Wiesenthal invented a Holocaust myth out of nothing, and the President of the United States and influential elites ended up repeating it “as the truth.” When closely analyzed, her book actually vindicates what mainstream “Final Solution” historian Christopher Browning revealed years ago: the Eichmann testimonies, pillars of the traditional Holocaust story, are grossly unreliable pieces of evidence that do not prove a thing. Finally, she showed how Israel conducted a highly successful propaganda trial that skillfully employed the mass media to firmly implant the Holocaust ideology in the public consciousness of the West (p.193).

Though Ms. Lipstadt would most likely vehemently deny it, The Eichmann Trial in an inadvertent way is a contribution to Holocaust revisionism.

Israel – Boycott, Devestment, Sanctions – FRANCE BANS BDS: because it is “anti-semitic”

ZOG FRANCE

Ed-note (Sabba) – Boycotting israel is a crime, boycotting israeli product is anti-judaism: but how about boycotting Russia and Russian products: shouldn’t that be called for what it is, i.e. anti-christianism?

JEWISH PRESS

The highest court in France this week upheld the criminal conviction of 12 political activists for the crime of advocating sanctions and a boycott against Israel.

“BDS is illegal in France,” announced Pascal Markowicz, head attorney for CRIF, the umbrella organization for Jewish communities in France. Any actions to promote the movement, he added, “are completely illegal. If [BDS activists] say their freedom of expression has been violated, now the highest legal instance in France has ruled otherwise.”

The group was arrested for distributing anti-Israel material in a supermarket under the French law on Freedom of the Press.

Twelve activists wearing shirts that bore the words, “Long live Palestine, Boycott Israel” entered the store and began passing out flyers from the BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions) movement.

The flyers said: “buying Israeli products means legitimizing crimes in Gaza.”

The law imposes a prison term and/or fine of up to $50,000 for those who “provoke discrimination, hatred or violence toward a person or group of people on grounds of their origin, their belonging or their not belonging to an ethnic group, a nation, a race or a certain religion.”

The court ruled that BDS is inherently discriminatory and thus outlawed its promotion.

Éric Zemmour: The Rise of the Shoah as the Official Religion of the French Republic

Translation by Guillaume Durocher

Translator’s note: Éric Zemmour is a Sephardic Jewish French journalist and pundit, no doubt the “most nationalist” voice allowed on French television, all but telling people to vote for the Front National. I found his bestselling book Le Suicide français, while sometimes false or circumspect, surprisingly frank on certain issues. The title is taken from the text. Given the length of the text, I have bolded admissions that are significant for a mainstream publication.

The following is taken from Éric Zemmour, Le Suicide français (Albin Michel: 2014), “De Gaulle raflé au Vél d’Hiv,” pp. 379-385.

[French President Jacques Chirac, July 16, 1996:] There are, in the life of a nation, moments which hurt the memory and the idea one has of one’s country. . . . France, the fatherland of the Enlightenment and of the rights of man, land of refuge and asylum, France, on that day, committed the irredeemable. Betraying her word, she delivered her wards to their tormentors . . .

It was Brutus, his adoptive son, who returned, according to the legend, to finish off Caesar, stabbed with dagger strikes; it was Jacques Chirac, the self-styled heir of Gaullism, whose role it was to destroy the Gaullian mystique. The latter was founded upon the distinction between a legal but illegitimate Vichy [regime], a de factobut not de jure authority, and Free France, incarnation of national legitimacy, of the only France, of the France which fights . . . 



If France, on that day, that of the Vél’ d’Hiv roundup, July 16, 1942, “committed the irredeemable,” then France resides in Vichy, and not in London; [Marshal Philippe] Pétain is indeed the head of the French State and [General Charles] de Gaulle returns to being a rebel and seditionist general, sentenced to death in abstentia. . . . This Gaullian mystique had founded the General’s entire political œuvre. . . .

Chirac’s speech consecrated a new approach to the Second World War, seen solely as a battle against Nazism, a regime almost excluded from the human race, outside of Germany and even of history, very different from the struggles between nations for European and global hegemony. A convenient narrative which authorized future surrenders. Even though [the Socialist François] Mitterrand had been the President who had abolished entire areas of French sovereignty by signing the Treaty of Maastricht, he was repulsed by this symbolic renunciation: “Those who demand that France apologize do not love their country.”

Though weakened by sickness[1], Mitterrand had fought, without ever giving way. He had organized a “National Day Commemorating the Racist and Anti-Semitic Persecutions Under the De Facto Authority of Vichy (1940–1944)”, believing this concession would be enough. He had passionately justified this at length before [Sephardic journalist] Jean-Pierre Elkabbach following revelations by [journalist] Pierre Péan on his lasting friendship with René Bousquet, the organizer of the Vél d’Hiv roundup, and the publishing of the infamous photo — which General de Gaulle had declined to make public during the 1965 presidential campaign — where we discover a young Mitterrand receiving the francisque [one Vichy’s highest medals] from the hands of the old Marshal.

On July 16, 1994, Mitterrand endured the hisses of young Jewish activists without batting an eye, making [Jewish politician and President of the Constitutional Council] Robert Bandinter rage: “I am ashamed of you!”[i.e., the Jewish activists] The worst attacks would come from those whom he [Mitterrand] had promoted. [Socialist politician] Lionel Jospin, pressed to draft his “balance sheet,” would cast his small stone: “We would dream of a simpler and clearer itinerary for the person who had been the leader of the French left during the 70s and the 80s. What I cannot understand is the maintenance, into the 1980s, of ties with people like Bousquet, the organizer of the great roundups of Jews.”

Exhausted, on the day of his departure from the Élysée, Mitterrand fulminated still, in the ear of Jean d’Ormesson, against “the Jewish lobby” which had tormented him so.

The expression shocked, repulsed, provoked a thousand virulent attacks against the incorrigible anti-Semitism of President Mitterrand.

[“Nazi hunter”] Serge Klarsfeld was the target [of the comment]. Mitterrand accused him of having moved heaven and earth, French and American Jews, national and international pressure groups, to make him submit. Mitterrand had never given way; Chirac would never even try to resist. Klarsfeld was triumphant. It was the struggle of his life.

Chirac was acclaimed, celebrated by the media and an almost unanimous political class. The media and the left had already forgotten that they had condemned, four years earlier, the “xenophobic” and “racist” Chirac for his comments on “the noise and the odors” [of immigrants], which described the exasperation of the French worker who gets up early, and earns less than his African next-door neighbor does from various social benefits. During this same year of 1991, Chirac’s great rival, [Valéry] Giscard [d’Estaing] had raised the specter of “the [immigrant] invasion” to warn the country of the tragic destiny that awaited it — and to try to resurrect his approval ratings. But Chirac, elected in 1995, had defeated his longtime enemy and his demons. It was time to shed his old skin. They erased the distant traces of “Chirac the Fascist” to write the poetry of “Chirac the antiracist,” a connoisseur of exotic civilizations and primitive arts, the conciliator who did not hesitate to “look upon the history of France with its light and its shadows.”

Chirac, never forgetting petty politics, would overdo it, associating the suffering of the Jews sent to the camps with Jean-Marie Le Pen’s tasteless jokes (without naming him); he even concluded his sermon on the the conflicts tearing Yugoslavia apart with a human-rights-ist hodgepodge. But no one held it against him; this speech on the Vél’ d’Hiv would eternally be held to his credit, even among his fiercest opponents; it would endure as his masterpiece, his legacy to a grateful posterity, his abolition of the death penalty[2].

Serge Klarsfeld’s victory, and behind him, of all those who had expected the arrogant France of “the rights of man” to recognize — finally — her crimes, was total; but it was a Pyrrhic victory.

After Mitterrand’s long resistance, this French atonement was experienced by some as the dazzling proof of overwhelming and insolent Jewish domination, capable of forcing the submission of the leader of the “the fifth-greatest power in the world.” Over many years, the slow elevation of the “Shoah” as the crime of crimes, and of the Jews as absolute victims, had already greatly irritated the survivors and heirs of other historical massacres. Already in 1976, Charles Aznavour, of Armenian origin, had declared, commenting on his song “Ils sont tombés”[3]: “He who does not recognize all genocides does not recognize any.”[4]

The Caribbean Blacks would increasingly take offense at what they felt to be a “double standard.” The victimhood competition of memories, which [historian] Alain Besançon once termed “historical amnesia and hypermnesia,” was the inevitable consequence of this rise of the Shoah as the official religion of the French Republic. The comedian Dieudonné, [Jewish comedian] Élie Semoun’s former partner, was furious at not having found the necessary financing for a film he wanted to make dedicated to [Jean-Baptiste] Colbert’s Code noir,[5] and would become the leading figure of this victimhood competition. With a talented desanctifying earthiness, Dieudonné would accumulate distinctions and provocations, such as the “Pariah-hood Prize” which he had awarded to the Holocaust-denier Robert Faurisson by an actor wearing the striped pajamas of a deportee. The Jewish institutions complained, retaliated, got him sentenced in court, hounded the comedian from television, the radio stations, and even managed to shut the doors of performance halls to him. Dieudonné and his admirers, more and more numerous, in particular among young Arabs and Blacks of the banlieues, were convinced of the irresistible and sectarian power of the “Community”; all the more fearsome in that one did not have the right — like the God of the Old Testament — to pronounce his  [the Jewish community’s] name.

The Dieudonné brushfire was contained for a while; but, thanks to the Internet, his success went on.

President Chirac, however, had to take the frustration of Black activists into account. They, too, got their commemorative day on the Black slave trade, and their memorial law. The slippery slope proved to be diabolical. A law on the Armenian genocide was voted; and the colonial conquests were condemned.

Every “community” demanded its own memorial law and its own commemorative day, its own crime against humanity, its own genocide. Every “community” demanded that the French state repay its debt towards them. France was no longer this venerated lady whose epic deeds were celebrated, but a hated stepmother who had accumulated crimes and injustices which supercilious creditors maintained a fastidious and vindictive accounting. We abandoned the glorious days of those who “died for France” to enter into the bitter days those who “died because of France.”

Everyone dreamed of becoming a victim, of acquiring the power — both real and imagined — which this victimhood had granted the Jews.

A historian was threatened with a trial because he did not want to recognize the “genocidal” character of the Black slave trade; even though he rightly argued that “the slave had to be maintained alive to be profitable.” The most renowned historians defended their young colleague. Finally, the politicians were touched. The historian André Kaspi was charged with examining the question of commemorations in France; he proposed the possible removal of annual national commemorative days. “It is not healthy that the number of commemorations has doubled over the course of half a century. It is unacceptable that the Nation surrender to ethnic interests and that we multiply the days of atonement to appease victims’ group.”

After these strong words, nothing was done. Days of commemoration are now a legal acquis in the name of “the reconciliation of memories.” A splendid anti-sentence.

On July 16, 2012, to celebrate with éclat his recent entry to the Élysée, and to contrast with his predecessor who had thought it good to denigrate repentance, François Hollande denounced “the crime committed in France and by France” [at the Vél’ d’Hiv]. In one sentence, the new President showed the full meaning of his Corrèzianfriend’s [Chirac] transgression; he had erased the handful of verbal disclaimers that Chirac had still peppered his speech with. Hollande had eliminated any reference to Germany, to the Nazis, to the war, to the defeat, as if the exterminationist will of the Hitlers, Himmlers, and Eichmanns had been negligible, as if any historical contextualization was superfluous. . . . The survival of three-quarters of the Jews of France was entirely credited to those [few] French, those “anonymous heroes” [as opposed to French society as a whole], the Righteous Ones, thus accepting the materially impossible theory of Serge Klarsfeld. France was this inherently guilty nation for ever and ever. For all eternity.

Hillary Clinton condemns anti-Israel boycotts as ‘counter-productive’

Presidential frontrunner seeks to bolster her pro-Israel credentials with a promise to lobby groups to fight back against attempts to isolate the Jewish state

Hillary Clinton has condemned the BDS movement in a letter to longtime supporter and Hollywood mogul Haim Saban and dozens of other Jewish leaders.

Clinton, the frontrunner in the race for the Democratic party presidential nomination, wrote to Saban to ask for his advice on “how leaders and communities across America can work together to counter BDS”. She expressed the opinion that BDS “seeks to punish Israel and dictate how Israelis and Palestinians should resolve the core issues of their conflict”.

The Boycott, Divest and Sanction (BDS) movement, spearheaded by Palestinian advocacy groups who claim Israel is similar to apartheid South Africa, seeks to boycott companies which do business in the State of Israel and encourages organizations and institutions to divest from the country until Israel ends what they call “its occupation and colonization of all Arab lands”.

In the letter dated 2 July, Clinton said “the BDS campaign is counterproductive to the pursuit of peace and harmful to Israelis and Palestinians alike” and pledged to mount a bipartisan effort “to fight back against further attempts to isolate and delegitimize Israel”.

Aaron Keyak, a prominent pro-Israel Democrat, met Clinton’s letter with praise. Keyak said “the BDS movement is not just anti-settlement or anti-Israel, it is fundamentally founded on antisemitic ideology. Reasonable people can talk about what the best way to bring about a two-state solution but there will be no peace so long as the other side doesn’t recognize Israel’s fundamental right to exist.”

He went on to say that this is just a reminder that Clinton “is not only pro-Israel but a strong pro-Israel leader” and expressed the hope that this letter “will prevent the sort of hyperbolic over-the-top attacks from Republicans saying that she is somehow anti-Israel”.

But Yousef Munayyer, a Palestinian-American scholar and director of the US Campaign to End the Israeli Occupation, told the Guardian: “Hillary Clinton demonstrated once again that she is a creature of Washington that is out of touch with the progressive base of her party.”

Munayyer added: “At a special moment in this country, when progressive dynamism is leading the charge on equality and social justice, Clinton chose to side with the forces who support inequality and injustice for Palestinians. Her stance on BDS might win her some campaign contributions but it will do little to convince anyone she represents positive change.”

On the right, Noah Pollak, the executive director of the Emergency Committee for Israel, said Clinton’s letter was “welcome news” but was still skeptical of her bona fides on the issue. He went on to warn “she will not be taken seriously as a pro-Israel candidate if she comes out in support of Obama’s Iran deal”.

Clinton’s letter represents one of her most detailed statements on any issue related to foreign policy since announcing her plans to run for president in April.

Why I Support the BDS Movement Against Israel

by Chris Hedges

“Gaza, a year after Israel carried out a devastating bombing campaign that lasted almost two months, is in ruins,” writes Hedges. (Photo: Agencia de Noticias/flickr/cc)

The Palestinians are poor. They are powerless. They have no voice or influence in the halls of power. They are demonized. They do not have well-heeled lobbyists doling out campaign contributions and pushing through pro-Palestinian legislation. No presidential candidate is appealing to donors—as Hillary Clinton did when she sent a letter to media mogul Haim Saban denouncing critics of Israel—by promising to advance the interests of the Palestinian people. Palestinians, like poor people of color in the United States, are expendable.

Justice for Palestine will never come from the traditional governmental institutions or political parties that administer power. These institutions have surrendered to moneyed interests. Justice will come only from us. And the sole mechanism left to ensure justice for Palestine is the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement against Israel. Sanctions brought down the apartheid regime of South Africa. And they are what will bring down the apartheid regime of Israel. BDS is nonviolent. It appeals to conscience. And it works.

The struggle against apartheid in South Africa was long and hard. This struggle will be too.All Israeli products including Jaffa citrus fruits, Ahava cosmetics, SodaStream drink machines, Eden Springs bottled water and Israeli wine must be boycotted. We must refuse to do business with Israeli service companies. And we must boycott corporations that do business with Israel, including Caterpillar, HP and Hyundai. We must put pressure on institutions, from churches to universities, to divest from Israeli companies and corporations that have contracts with Israel. The struggle against apartheid in South Africa was long and hard. This struggle will be too.

Gaza, a year after Israel carried out a devastating bombing campaign that lasted almost two months, is in ruins. Most of the water is unsafe to drink. There are power outages for up to 12 hours a day. Forty percent of the 1.8 million inhabitants are unemployed, including 67 percent of the youths—the highest youth unemployment rate in the world. Of the 17,000 homes destroyed by Israel in the siege, not one has been rebuilt. Sixty thousand people remain homeless. Only a quarter of the promised $3.5 billion in aid from international donors has been delivered—much of it diverted to the Palestinian Authority, the Israeli puppet regime that governs the West Bank. And no one in Washington—Republican or Democrat—will defy the Israel lobby. No one will call for justice or stay the Israeli killing machine. U.S. senators, including Bernie Sanders, at the height of the Israeli bombardment last summer voted unanimously to defend the Israeli slaughter of a people with no army, navy, air force, mechanized units, artillery or command and control. It was a vote worthy of the old Soviet Union. Every senator held out his or her tin cup to the Israel lobby and chose naked self-interest over justice.

Israel, like the United States, is poisoned by the psychosis of permanent war. It too is governed by a corrupt oligarchic elite for whom war has become a lucrative business.

Israel, like the United States, is poisoned by the psychosis of permanent war. It too is governed by a corrupt oligarchic elite for whom war has become a lucrative business. It too has deluded itself into carrying out war crimes and then playing the role of the victim. Israeli systems of education and the press—again mirrored in the United States—have indoctrinated Israelis into believing that they have a right to kill anyone whom the state condemns as a terrorist. And Israel’s most courageous human rights campaigners, intellectuals and journalists are slandered and censored in their own country, just as American critics such as Norman Finkelstein, Max Blumenthal and Noam Chomsky are in the United States.

Those who become addicted to the wielding of the instruments of war, blinded by hubris and a lust for power, eventually become war’s victims. This is as true for Israel as for the United States.

Israel’s goal is to make life a living hell for all Palestinians, ethnically cleansing as many as it can and subduing those who remain. The peace process is a sham. It has led to Israel’s seizure of more than half the land on the West Bank, including the aquifers, and the herding of Palestinians into squalid, ringed ghettos or Bantustans while turning Palestinian land and homes over to Jewish settlers. Israel is expanding settlements, especially in East Jerusalem. Racial laws, once championed by the right-wing demagogue Meir Kahane, openly discriminate against Israeli Arabs and Palestinians. Ilan Pappe calls the decades-long assault against the Palestinian people “incremental genocide.”

In Gaza, Israel practices an even more extreme form of cruelty. It employs a mathematical formula to limit outside food deliveries to Gaza to keep the caloric levels of the 1.8 million Palestinians just above starvation. This has left 80 percent of the Palestinians in Gaza dependent on Islamic charities and outside aid to survive. And the periodic military assaults on Gaza, euphemistically called “mowing the lawn,” are carried out every few years to ensure that the Palestinians remain broken, terrified and destitute. There have been three Israeli attacks on Gaza since 2008. Each is more violent and indiscriminate than the last. Israeli Foreign Minister Avigdor Lieberman has said that a fourth attack on Gaza is “inevitable.”

Israel is not an anomaly. It is a window into the dystopian, militarized world that is being prepared for all of us, a world with vast disparities of income and draconian systems of internal security. There will be no freedom for Palestine, or for those locked in our own internal colonies and terrorized by indiscriminate police violence, until we destroy corporate capitalism and the neoliberal ideology that sustains it.

During its 51-day siege of Gaza last summer Israel dropped $370 million in ordinance on concrete hovels and refugee camps that hold the most densely packed population on the planet. Two thousand one hundred four Palestinians were killed. Sixty-nine percent—1,462—were civilians. Four hundred ninety-five were children. Ten thousand were injured. (During the attack six Israeli civilians and 66 soldiers were killed.) Four hundred Palestinian businesses were wiped out. Seventy mosques were destroyed and 130 were damaged. Twenty-four medical facilities were bombed, and 16 ambulances were struck, as was Gaza’s only electrical power plant. Israel tallied it up: 390,000 tank shells, 34,000 artillery shells, 4.8 million bullets. Most of the civilians who died were killed in their homes, many of the victims torn to shreds by flechette dartssprayed from tanks. Children were burned with white phosphorous or buried with their families under rubble caused by 2,000-pound iron fragmentation bombs. Others died from dense inert metal explosive, or DIME, bombs—experimental weapons that send out extremely small, carcinogenic particles that cut through both soft tissue and bone. The Israel Defense Forces, as Amira Hass has reported, consider any Palestinian over the age of 12 to be a legitimate military target. Max Blumenthal’s new book, “The 51 Day War,” is a chilling chronicle of savage atrocities carried out by Israel in Gaza last summer. As horrible as the apartheid state in South Africa was, that nation never used its air force and heavy artillery to bomb and shell black townships.

A report by Action on Armed Violence (AOAV) found Israel killed and injured more civilians with explosive weapons in 2014 than any other country in the world. Hamas’ indiscriminate firing of wildly inaccurate missiles—Finkelstein correctly called them “enhanced fireworks”—into Israel was, as a U.N. report recently charged, a war crime, although the report failed to note that under international law Hamas had a right to use force to defend itself from attack.

The disparity of firepower in the 2014 conflict was vast: Israel dropped 20,000 tons of explosives on Gaza while Hamas used 20 to 40 tons of explosives to retaliate. Israel’s wholesale slaughter of civilians is on a scale equaled only by Islamic State and Boko Haram. Yet Israel, in our world of double standards, is exempted from condemnation in Washington and provided with weapons and billions in U.S. foreign aid to perpetuate the killing. This is not surprising. The United States uses indiscriminate deadly force in Iraq, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia that outdoes even Israel, leaving behind civilian victims, refugees and destroyed cities and villages in huge numbers.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who during his last election campaign received 90 percent of his money from U.S. oligarchs such as Sheldon Adelson, has internally mounted a campaign of state repression against human rights advocates, journalists and dissidents. He has stoked overt racism toward Palestinians and Arabs and the African migrant workers who live in the slums of Tel Aviv. “Death to Arabs” is a popular chant at Israeli soccer matches. Thugs from right-wing youth groups such as Im Tirtzu routinely beat up dissidents, Palestinians, Israeli Arabs and African immigrants in the streets of Tel Aviv. It is a species of Jewish fascism.

Israel is not an anomaly. It is a window into the dystopian, militarized world that is being prepared for all of us, a world with vast disparities of income and draconian systems of internal security. There will be no freedom for Palestine, or for those locked in our own internal colonies and terrorized by indiscriminate police violence, until we destroy corporate capitalism and the neoliberal ideology that sustains it. There will be no justice for Michael Brown until there is justice for Mohammed Abu Khdeir. The fight for the Palestinians is our fight. If the Palestinians are not liberated none of us will be liberated. We cannot pick and choose which of the oppressed are convenient or inconvenient to defend. We will stand with all of the oppressed or none of the oppressed. And when we stand with the oppressed we will be treated like the oppressed.

Reflections on Jewish Intermarriage into Native Elites

“I want to thank my Jewish daughter. I have a Jewish daughter. This wasn’t in the plan but I’m very glad it happened.”
Donald Trump, February 2015.

As discussion continues among White advocates over the Trump candidacy, I haven’t failed to notice that perhaps the most persistent criticism of Trump from our ranks has been his strong links to Jews, in particular his familial ties to Jewish blood. There’s certainly some substance to this. Trump’s daughter, Ivanka, has adopted the Jewish religion as her own and has been married to Jewish real estate speculator Jared Kushner since 2009. Both of Donald Trump’s grandchildren are Jewish. Looking into the situation in more detail, I was intrigued to discover that Ivanka’s previous two significant relationships were also with Jews, Greg Hirsch and James Gubelmann. Of further note is Ivanka’s very close friendship with Chelsea Clinton, another progeny of the American power elite, who married the Jewish financier Marc Mezvinsky in 2010. The Trump and Clinton situations are excellent examples of the centuries-old practice of strategic Jewish intermarriage with native elites, and this phenomenon deserves some focussed attention.

Jewish intermarriage into non-Jewish power elites is a significant but under-researched aspect of Jewish strategies to maintain and expand influence. At first sight, of course, it appears paradoxical. A major part of the Jewish group evolutionary strategy is concerned with segregation of the gene pool and preventing high levels of genetic admixture from surrounding groups. Judaism has historically been replete with social and cultural controls designed to minimize contact with non-Jews, and therefore greatly inhibit admixture. Additionally, converts are dissuaded and scorned in Judaism in a manner quite without parallel in any other religious culture. However, as Kevin MacDonald has noted in A People That Shall Dwell Alone (2002, hereafter PTSDA), conversion and admixture were permissible, if not eagerly sought, when such an admixture was very small and offered significant net benefits to the group. Similarly, at the opposite end of the Jewish strategic ghetto, controls were also far from airtight — the most sincere Jewish apostates to Christianity tended to be overwhelmingly poor and obscure, and were little mourned by the group at large. The eugenic benefits of pursuing such a strategy are obvious.



Even in ancient times there is evidence that “some gentile-derived genes were being selected for their effects on resource-obtaining abilities within the Jewish community (PTSDA, 41).” By targeting the rich and powerful for intermarriage, Jews could obtain significant and immediate material resources, an improvement in social status, and also useful genetic material. Though very few in number, ancient converts, and their more celebrated modern counterparts, have been disproportionately intelligent and successful. MacDonald writes that

It is possible that even this relatively small genetic admixture from surrounding populations could be adaptive for a strategizing group because the group would benefit from new genetic combinations, e.g. intelligence, greater phenotypic similarity etc…Evidence in favor of this hypothesis would be that Jewish proselytism, while highly limited and restricted, has been more successful among wealthy, intelligent, and talented individuals and that this pattern was actively encouraged by the Jewish community (PTSDA, Chapter 2, 41).[1]

Earlier this year Princeton University Press published Todd Endelman’sLeaving the Fold: Conversion and Radical Assimilation in Modern Jewish History. Endelman’s work purports to examine phenomena like intermarriage and conversion but, typically for mainstream Jewish scholarship, it neglects to engage in any real sense with aspects of these phenomena that reflect less favorably on Jewish culture, particularly the nature of elite-level intermarriage. However, there are a few useful snippets of information that offer substantiation for MacDonald’s observations. Those Jews who drifted into the non-Jewish gene pool were indeed, according to Endelman, “swindlers, drunkards, whores, schlemiels, schlemazels, nudniks, and no-goodniks” whose “social, cultural, and even moral level was low.”[2]By contrast, those non-Jews welcomed into the Jewish fold were from the very highest social levels, and the efforts taken to entice young princes, landowners, or heirs of industry to take Jewish wives were remarkable for their long-term, premeditated nature. Endelman remarks on census data from Berlin, covering the period 1770–1826, which indicates that elite Berlin Jews were utilizing baptism as “a long-term strategy to make their daughters eligible for eventual intermarriage.”[3]

Of course, the most significant barrier to Jewish attempts to intermarry with the non-Jewish elite were the religious aspects of marriage, and the requirement that Jews convert to Christianity before being permitted to take a Christian spouse. This barrier only began to weaken in the late eighteenth and early nineteenth centuries, beginning in the German-speaking lands where some of the aforementioned leading Jewish families began baptizing their daughters in long-term strategies for intermarriage with the Prussian elite, the Junkers. By the late 1700s many of the Junkers had fallen on hard times financially, due in large part to Jewish predation. The same period witnessed a boom in the wealth of Jewish bankers. Deborah Hertz writes in Jewish High Society in Old Regime Berlin that “discrete private loans to those who could afford the high interest rates was one way that the Jewish bankers increased the wealth they acquired in the Seven Year’s War.”[4] Indebted nobles began frequenting the homes of their Jewish creditors, either to make payments or plead for extensions. It was in these circumstances that the first fraternization began between the Prussian nobility and the daughters of the Jewish elite. There is even some suggestion that nobles were heavily pressured, via their debts, to take Jewish wives for easier terms. For example, Hannah Arendt argued that intermarriages between the Prussian nobility and Jewish women were simply “a continuation of the creditor-debtor exchanges of the earlier years.”[5] Eventually this mode of contact evolved into the “salon” culture, in which soirées were staged and hosted by Jewish financial magnates with the specific purpose of encouraging the mixing of the Prussia nobility and selected Jewesses.[6]

Civil marriage wasn’t introduced in Prussia until 1874. Until then there were a considerable number of insincere conversions that facilitated intermarriage but failed to disguise the fact that the Jewish wives of the Prussian nobility continued to carry on Jewish lives. Hertz describes the Jewish families as “socially opportunistic” strategizers who were motivated by “status-hungry desires” and “craved the higher positions possessed by Christians.”[7] The vast majority of Jewish women who married into the Junker class derived many of the social benefits now attached to their status in non-Jewish society, while retaining “strong ties to friends and relatives who remained Jewish.”[8] The flurry of Jewish intermarriages into the Prussian elite only began to ebb away around 1813, when Prussian society witnessed a backlash against the encroachment, and a number of “anti-Semitic” salons were established.[9] Many of the salon women were treated with scathing disdain by those members of the elite who resented the Jewish incursion. For example, Wilhelm von Humboldt, the Prussia philosopher and diplomat, once described salon star Rahel Levin as a “monster.” And when Levin married Karl August Varnhagen von Ense, the cream of the Prussian elite, von Humboldt asked a friend whether “there was anything a Jew could not achieve.’”[10]

Jewish intermarriage to British aristocracy

Although the salons of Prussia and Paris facilitated the extension and deepening of Jewish influence, no nineteenth-century native elite was subjected to Jewish penetration as strongly as the British aristocracy. In 1936 England’s Arnold Leese, a former military veterinarian and leader of a small Fascist group, published a pamphlet titled Our Jewish Aristocracy: A Revelation. At the outset of the publication, Leese wrote that he wished to impress upon his fellow Britons that “their race is being displaced and replaced, and without notice to any individual.” Compared with our contemporary situation, Leese couldn’t even imagine what genuine displacement and replacement would actually look like. However, what Leese did manage to produce was a valuable, though imperfect, piece of research that made a convincing case for the argument that the British elite was being slowly displaced and replaced with Jewish genes. My careful re-examination of his lengthy list of British nobles with Jewish ancestry indicates that Leese made a handful of errors, but the majority of those listed were indeed related to Jews by blood or marriage.

In his classic work, The Jews (1922), Hilaire Belloc wrote that Jewish intermarriage into the British elite was more “subtle and penetrating” than even the Jewish acquisition of key positions in the institutions of the State. Belloc stated that:

Marriages began to take place, wholesale, between what had once been the aristocratic territorial families of this country and the Jewish commercial fortunes. After two generations of this, with the opening of the twentieth century those of the great territorial English families in which there was no Jewish blood were the exception. In nearly all of them was the strain more or less marked, in some of them so strong that though the name was still an English name and the traditions those of a purely English lineage of the long past, the physique and character had become wholly Jewish and the members of the family were taken for Jews whenever they travelled in countries where the gentry had not yet suffered or enjoyed this admixture (223).

The two main reasons for the more extensive Jewish penetration of the British aristocracy were the earlier introduction of civil marriage, and the admission of Jews to the hereditary peerage on a par with the native elite (beginning with Nathan Mayer Rothschild in 1884). Endelman writes that in Britain, “marriage without a religious ceremony became legal in 1837, and in 1839 Hannah de Rothschild (1815–1864), daughter of the founder of the English branch of the banking clan, married Henry FitzRoy, younger son of the second Lord Southampton, at St. George’s, Hanover Square, without first becoming a Christian.”[11] Although romantic historical renditions of the marriage portray it as a love affair between two people whose families objected to the pairing, the ensuing scale and extent of Jewish intermarriage into the peerage following the union suggest that the Rothschilds and the wider Anglo-Jewish Cousinhood were very keen on the development. In fact, within a century the scale of Jewish intermarriage with the British aristocracy was such that it led L.G. Pine, editor of Burke’s Peerage from 1949–1959, to write in 1956 that “the Jews have made themselves so closely connected with the British peerage that the two classes are unlikely to suffer loss which is not mutual.”

Pine’s astute comment bears some reflection because it cuts to the heart of Jewish intermarriage with native elites. Jews historically have tirelessly engaged in efforts to position themselves either in elite positions or in positions that place them between the elite and the great mass of people. Jews have sought these positions of power and influence in order to pursue their goals and interests — goals and interests which are very often at odds with the interests of native populations. This conflict of interests is the root cause of what has been termed “anti-Semitism,” and one of the main strategies Jews have employed against “anti-Semitism” is that of crypsis. Cryptic strategies have involved insincere conversions to Christianity and the abandonment of phenotypic characteristics that provoke hostility. The argument here is that Jewish intermarriage with native elites should be seen, partly, as a more extreme example of Jewish crypsis.  What better way for a foreign elite to occupy powerful positions in a society than to do so in a manner which gives the impression that the foreign elite is nothing more than the traditional, native elite? By inter-breeding so acutely with the native elites, and blending their interests so tightly, the strategy also places further distance between the native elite and the people it leads. As Pine suggests, the native elite can no longer act on behalf of the people and against foreign influence because intermarriage has ensured that any Jewish loss would in fact be “mutual.”

The Trump and Clinton intermarriages should be seen as part of this greater strategy of expanding power and influence cryptically, and “normalizing” or blurring the image of Jews at the top of our society. Also, in the same way that one injects small amounts of microbes in order to immunize oneself against a disease, by taking in small amount of the “best” genes or personalities Jewry “immunizes” itself against the threat of a reaction from the financially and politically powerful. To be clear, although it is clearly helpful, the argument here is not that intermarriage is any longer essential to the expansion of Jewish power and influence. It’s continuance in the present is in part merely a symptom of the geriatric, decayed, and increasingly alien nature of our existing elites. Our sick society has an elite composed of media types, corporate vultures, and opportunistic politicians. And when a society hands over the top positions of power and influence to the financially rich but morally and ideologically bankrupt, it will not be cream that rises to the top, but scum.

Jews no longer have to reach across a cultural Rubicon in order to penetrate an exalted native elite. They already occupy the same dubious space as it. In Diversity in the Power Elite: How It Happened, Why It Matters (2006) G. William Domhoff and Richard Zweigenhaft state that “Jews are overrepresented overall in the corporate elite. Jews are also now overrepresented in both the Senate and the House.”[12] The need for the salons has long since dissipated. The rotten elites, both foreign and domestic, can intermingle in their board rooms and political venues, their fates and interests, as Pine stated, now entwined. Chelsea Clinton and Marc Mezvinsky, the son of an Iowa Congressman and a Philadelphia Congresswoman, met at a 1993 Democratic political retreat in Hilton Head, South Carolina. Ivanka Trump met Jared Kushner in a heavily-Jewish social milieu built around the upper echelon of corporate real estate. The social circles are mutual.

A couple of weeks ago, during a conversation with a White advocate of many years’ service, I was asked my opinion on the monarchies of Europe and their future. I replied that although I have a lingering respect for centuries of tradition, the time has come for the decrepit old elites to be swept away. In the course of the ongoing invasion of foreign peoples into Europe, the remaining aristocracies will not survive long anyway. The invaders will not respect the history, tradition or authority of people who are no more than relics of past European glories. The inbred, quasi-Jewish denizens of Europe’s crumbling manorial estates may lock the doors of their palatial residences, but if push came to shove, they would be no more spared the ravages of a racial conflict than the humblest member of society. Nor should we mourn the passing of these people and their toppling from power and influence. These older elites have had centuries to prove that they deserved their positions through service to the folk and concern for the collective material well-being. Time and again they failed. Their corporate and political successors are failing even more rapidly, and much more profoundly.

If it can be said that many White advocates are elitists in the sense that they reject the proposition that “all men are equal,” it must be made clear that this in no way suggests support or endorsement for the existing elite, or the qualifications by which this group claims elite status. Quite the opposite. We are thus both elitist and “anti-elite.” In the same way, we acknowledge the influence of genes and heredity on one’s personality, behavior, and abilities but reject the idea that heredity alone is a qualification for individual or familial power. One does not find hereditary elites in nature. A lion may rule a pride but none of his cubs, talented though they may be, are necessarily destined to take his place. In the long history of monarchy in Europe, Fate placed a crown upon a genius only once in centuries. The remainder of these ages witnessed Europe laboring under despots, the mediocre, the inept, the feeble, the cowardly and the venal.

One of the great lies fed to the masses is that we now live in an era of meritocracy, with access to elite status open to anyone who is “talented” enough. But the lie doesn’t bear up under closer scrutiny. Even if one adopts the position that successfully competing to get into a “meritocratic” institution like an elite university is an avenue towards eventual, wider, elite status, one is confronted with phenomena like Jewish overrepresentation at elite universities. The fact remains that we live in what a January 2015 article in The Economist described as a flawed “hereditary meritocracy.” The hereditary meritocrats who compose our modern elites benefit from social and ethnic networking in much the same way as the hereditary aristocrats did in earlier periods. There are gatekeepers controlling access to elite universities, elite media positions, and elite social functions. As has been stated, Jews are massively overrepresented across all indicators of elite power and influence. Meritocracy, like modern democracy, is an illusion.

This discussion is aimed primarily at moving us away from references to “our” elite, as opposed to the Jewish elite. If anything resembling the old WASP elite still exists in America, it is either moribund, corrupted, or beyond saving. The salvation of our people will not come from throwing our support behind an imagined non-Jewish group already possessing some wealth and power. As discussed above, interests and bloodlines have been intertwined enough for any such group to view a decline in Jewish power as a decline in its own. “Our” elite isn’t really “ours” at all. There is simply one, heavily-Jewish, elite, and we are in ideological, material, and spiritual opposition to it. How excited, then, should we really be about Donald Trump? For all his bluster, Trump is a creation and product of the bourgeois revolution and its materialistic liberal ideologies. We are teased and tantalized by the fantasy that Trump is a potential “man of the people.” But I cannot escape the impression that he is a utilitarian and primarily economic character, who seeks a social contract based on personal convenience and material interest. In his business and political history I see only the “distilled Jewish spirit.” In his family tree I see distilled Jewish blood. Time will tell how useful his “drawing attention to the immigration issue” will be. Time will also tell whether, if he is successful in reaching the White House, he would do anything to reverse the decline of White America.

I’d love to be proven wrong.


[1] A recent paper notes that this process is quite common in nature and may well have occurred in humans. The technical term for the spread of favorable genes from one population to another is “adaptive introgression.” It has been proposed that human populations settling in Eurasia acquired beneficial genes “‘for free’ at a frequency of a few percent” from Neanderthals and other groups which then spread rapidly. The same thing may have happened with Jewish populations in Europe, thus accounting for the superior IQ of Ashkenazi groups compared to other Jewish groups, especially Middle Eastern Jews.

Adaptation through the acquisition of new mutations is generally a slow process: it is rare for favourable alleles to appear, and these are often lost by chance when they first occur in a single individual or in very few individuals. By contrast, if favourable alleles have emerged in one group, they can spread to other groups relatively rapidly by gene flow. This process, called ‘adaptive introgression’, is well documented in bacteria and plants, and described in some cases in animals, but it has not previously been considered an important factor in human adaptation. However, because Neanderthals and Denisovans lived in Europe and Asia for hundreds of thousands of years, they presumably carried alleles that were favourable given the conditions where they lived. Through gene flow, modern humans spreading across Eurasia from Africa could then acquire these alleles ‘for free’ at a frequency of a few percent, thus ensuring that they were not lost and could be acted upon by positive selection.

Key Questions for “Half Jewish?” The Heirs of Intermarriage

——————————————————————————-

What Is Wrong with Intermarriage?

Science and Religion
Woman in Judaism

We live today in a multi-cultural and multi-religious society. We mix freely with, and respect, people of all faiths. Many Jews today grow up fully assimilated and comfortable in a secular society and environment. Why is it such a tragedy if a Jewish man finds a non-Jewish woman (or vice versa) with whom he feels totally compatible and decides to marry her? He claims that she is a genuinely lovely person with a fine character – often much nicer than any Jewish woman he has met. She is at home with his Jewish background and culture and both share the same values, hobbies and pursuits. A perfect match, yet not made in Heaven. Why not?

The decision to marry out is perhaps the most telling moment, when a person must consider what being Jewish actually means. Is being Jewish simply an accident of birth? Is there a difference between a Jew and a non-Jew? Can one retain full Jewish identity if married to a non-Jewish partner? What if one finds the perfect partner – loving, caring, considerate, good fun – but unfortunately non-Jewish? If one has found true love, does religion really matter?

Where do you come from?

No person just arrives on the scene. We are all the product of bygone generations; in the case of the Jews, descendants of Abraham, Isaacand Jacob. Jacob’s family descended to servitude in Egypt and after 210 years was miraculously redeemed by G–d through Moshe, His faithful servant. The Children of Israel were subsequently constituted as a nation at the stand at Sinai – the Torah being their “wedding contract” with G–d.

To date, Jewish history spans over 3,300 years. To be born a Jew today is not an accident of birth but the sum total of over 3,300 years of ancestral self-sacrifice, of heroes who at times gave their very lives for their beliefs. Greeks, Romans, Crusaders, Nazis and Communists all tried to obliterate Jewish practice and faith, but failed. The indomitable Jewish spirit survived and clung to its traditions despite all odds.

And now, the very latest link of that glorious tradition has the option of severing the chain in one fell swoop – or not!

A story was told by Mr. George Rohr, an American philanthropist, at a convention for the Lubavitcher Rebbe‘s emissaries in 1996. Mr Rohr related how he had the privilege to meet the Rebbe on one occasion just after Rosh Hashanah. Mr. Rohr thought it appropriate to present the Rebbe with a “spiritual” gift. A short time before, he had set up a beginners service at his shul in Manhattan, and on Rosh Hashanah 120 Jews attended this new service. Mr. Rohr decided to announce this to the Rebbe and was sure the Rebbe would receive much nachas from this good news. When his turn arrived, he confidently strode up to the Rebbe and said, “Thank G–d, this Rosh Hashanah we set up a beginners service in our shul and had 120 Jews with no Jewish background participate!”

Until that point the Rebbe had a broad smile on his face, but when Mr. Rohr told him the news the Rebbe’s face dropped, and Mr. Rohr searched his words for anything he may have said that had upset the Rebbe.

“What?!” said the Rebbe.

Mr. Rohr repeated, “… 120 Jews with no Jewish background.”

“No Jewish background?” asked the Rebbe. “Go and tell those Jews that they are all children of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.”

Now Mr. Rohr understood. The Rebbe objected to these Jews being described as having no Jewish background. Every Jew has a very illustrious background – they are all sons of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob!

The Chosen People

One may ask, however, why must I continue this chain, to pass on the traditions and to carry the baton just because my mazal was that I was born Jewish? There are plenty of others who will carry on the traditions. What difference does it make if I sidetrack a little and shunt myself into a dead-end?

Jews are called Bnai Yisrael. The word Yisrael is an acronym for the phrase, “Yesh Shishim Ribo Otiot LeTorah” which means that there are 600,000 letters in the Torah. Every Jew is compared to a letter in a Torah scroll. Even if only one letter is missing the entire scroll is incomplete and invalid. Every Jew is an ambassador of his people in his echelon in society. That is his G–d-given responsibility and privilege. To shirk this responsibility is to deny oneself the ultimate privilege.

Children

The Torah explicitly forbids intermarriage. The source is in Deuteronomy 7:3-4,

You shall not intermarry with them; you shall not give your daughter to his son, and you shall not take his daughter for your son, for he will cause your child to turn away from after Me and they will worship the gods of others.

This is also the Scriptural source for the law of matrilineal descent. Since the verse states “for he (ie a non-Jewish father) will cause your child to turn away … “, this implies that a child born to a Jewish mother is Jewish whereas, if a Jewish man marries a non-Jewish woman, the child is not Jewish.

A Jewish woman who has already married out and borne children should be encouraged to give them a full Jewish education. There are today thousands of practising Jews who only have a Jewish mother. However, to a couple contemplating intermarriage, the facts speak for themselves. Except in a small number of cases in which the mother is very determined and gives the child a very positive, strong Jewish education, in many cases the child grows up with a mixed and confused identity; in simple English, half-Jewish. Technically, there is no such thing – one is either 100% Jewish or not. However, in terms of identity, the child feels only half-Jewish. Even if the mother is a proud Jew, the father, whether atheist, agnostic, Protestant, Catholic, Muslim etc., does not share the same beliefs and values. Even if he is sympathetic, or even agrees to the child being brought up Jewish, there are bound to be differences. Does one celebrate Chanukah or Xmas, both or neither? Whichever one chooses is confusing or even contradictory. Many intermarried couples today celebrate both – but what sort of message does this give the child? Is the child Jewish, thus rejecting the notions of Christianity, or is the child a Christian with Jewish roots? It causes great confusion for the child and in many cases the child sees both faiths only on a superficial level, distanced by his parents from true belief.

The child is also given the test of mixed allegiances. All passages of life create a problem. Should the child be circumcised, christened, both or neither? Should the child have a Bar Mitzvah or be confirmed, marry in a synagogue or a church, be buried in a Jewish cemetery or be cremated?

And what chances are there that the child should want to marry a Jew, and carry on the chain?

There is another point: people are social beings. From time immemorial they have gathered in communities. One thing the international Jewish community prides itself in is the idea of Kol Yisrael Chaverim – all Israel are one fraternity, one brotherhood, one nation. If you are traveling to Bangkok and need a place for Shabbat you can be sure that if you turn up in shul you will get an invitation. Wherever a Jew goes he will have an international support group that extends hospitality and help, if needed. By having a non-Jewish child one has extricated the child from that community and bequeathed alienation to him. Everybody wants to belong – it is a basic human need. Intermarriage causes great confusion to children with regard to where they actually belong.

It’s in the genes

Marriage in general, even between two people of similar background, entails a certain risk as to eventual adjustment and compatibility. Even if the two have been acquainted for some time there is no sure guarantee as to what the relationship will be like when the acquaintance is turned into a marriage, where the two will be thrown together under one roof for 24 hours a day, day after day and week after week. But when the backgrounds are entirely different, and where these differences date back for scores of generations – and are consequently of a deep and lasting quality – the chances of adjustment and compatibility are lessened.

Intermarriage often results, sooner or later, in friction and unhappiness. That a casual, or even more serious, kind of relationship seemed in the past to indicate compatibility, is not a proof that it would be so ever after in a marriage situation.

No change

Even if a couple are happy with each other, deeply in love, and have decided to marry despite their different religious backgrounds, there are so many factors that can change a person’s feelings.

King Solomon states, “I am sleeping but my heart is awake.” A Jew may be sleeping spiritually but his inner Jewish heart is always awake and, at certain times, is aroused. Years into a marriage, where much of the relationship is routine, the soul and Jewish heart may be aroused to search for the deeper meaning to life. There may be a quest for spirituality and rediscovery of one’s roots.

Consider the possibility that these feelings will not be shared by your spouse. On the other hand, a Jewish partner means a shared history and a shared destiny.

But it works!

There is, of course, the argument that the percentage of intermarriages is considerable and many of them seem to last. However, the statistics show that the percentage of separations and divorces among intermarried couples is greater than among marriages within the faith..

It’s simply not right

To be honest – in the plain sense of the word – one would not wish to drag another party into an alliance which is likely to be troubled. If there is true love between the two parties, one would certainly not wish to cause the other this pain, and would readily forgo the prospect of immediate and short-lived pleasure in order to spare the other the probable result. Otherwise the professed love is tinged by selfishness.

Should there be children from such a union, there is the added consideration of the possibility of the children having to witness constant friction – and worse – between their parents.

One’s personal desire is no justification for involving oneself to involve another person – least of all a loved one – into such a situation, even if the other person is agreeable, and sincerely so. No person has the right to harm another person.

A Jewish marriage

A Jewish marriage is called a Binyan Adei Ad – an everlasting edifice. In order that the edifice of marriage should indeed be strong and lasting, everything connected with the wedding, as well as the establishment of the couple’s home, should be in full compliance with the instructions of the Torah. The Torah is called Torat Chaim – the Torah of life – it is the source of everlasting life in the Hereafter as well as the true guide to life on earth.

The analogy of marriage to an “everlasting edifice” is not merely a figure of speech but contains also an important idea and moral. In the case of any structure, the first and most important step is to ensure the quality and durability of the foundation. Without such a foundation, all the efforts put into the walls, roof, decorations and so on, would be of no avail. This is even more true of the structure of marriage; if its foundations are unstable, what tragedy could result! This is why a Jewish marriage must, first of all, be based on the rock- solid foundation of the Torah andmitzvot. Then the blessing of joy and happiness will follow the couple for the rest of their lives.

Should I marry a Jewess just because she is Jewish?

Many young people feel themselves pressured by their parents to marry a Jewish spouse and, even though the choice is wider in the non-Jewish world, they feel obligated to marry within the fold out of a sense of duty. They often ask the question, what is the difference between the Jew and the non-Jew – both dress the same, both share common values, both eat the same food? If a man finds himself with a choice between two women, one Jewish and one non-Jewish, should he marry the Jewish woman just because she is Jewish?

The answer is a resounding “Yes!” Yes, because therein lies the potential for a truly Jewish marriage. Although at present there seems to be no difference between the Jew and non-Jew, as people grow older they change and mature. The vicissitudes, strains and challenges of life pull a person in all directions. If one is at least married to a Jew, there is more common ground and potential for growing in the same direction.

However, as strongly as the answer is yes, it carries an equally strong piece of advice. The institution of marriage – any marriage – needs much hard work. No marriage can be taken for granted. As stated above, the foundation for a good marriage must be the Divine directives of the Torah, but a man and wife must understand that they have to work very hard to implement these directives in order to make the marriage successful.

Is conversion an option?

Conversion is serious business. A serious conversion can take years and involves serious changes in lifestyle and conduct.

To undergo a “cosmetic” or “plastic” conversion is, obviously, no solution to a seriously minded person. The Halachah is very clear in its insistence that the would-be convert honestly and wholeheartedly accepts all the mitzvot. Accepting all but one of the mitzvot automatically invalidates the conversion, and the non-Jew remains a non-Jew exactly as before. Of course, it is possible to mislead a rabbi or a Rabbinic Court by declaring one’s readiness to accept all the mitzvot, but one cannot mislead the Creator who is the One who imbues the Neshamah.

A word of caution: within the Jewish community today one may convert in either an Orthodox or Progressive establishment. An Orthodox conversion is the longer-shorter way. It may be arduous and take a longer time, but it is the shortest way to universal recognition. Anyone serious about conversion should consult a competent rabbinic authority. The reader is referred to the book Who is a Jew by Rabbi J.E. Schochet, which discusses this issue at length.

Advice to parents

Parents often seek rabbinical advice on how to stop an intermarriage.

In truth two pieces of advice are needed. One, before the crisis, and one after. When a child is born we wish the parents “Mazal Tov”. In many cases, straight after the Mazal Tov, the parents put their newborn child’s name down to attend the best schools in the area. One often hears from parents that they want to give their children the best education possible. By this they mean that they wish to expose their children to the highest levels of academia available in the secular world coupled with a weak pre-Bar Mitzvah education in the basics of Judaism. They expect their child to be worldly, educated, modern and open minded. They then pronounce that after such a broad education the child will be able to make his own choice about who he wishes to marry. When the child decides to intermarry the parents then run to the rabbi for a quick fix. Some parents resign themselves to the situation while others seek a token conversion.

In truth, such an education does not give the child free choice at all. If their choice is between a modern well-equipped science laboratory and an old stuffy synagogue classroom with a boring teacher – for sure they will choose the lab!

The story is told of a person who was asked if he knew what a Tallit Katan was. He replied affirmatively indicating on his own body the size of a pair of Tzitzit suitable for a seven year old – probably the type he once wore at Hebrew School. He was then asked what size suit he wore. When he appeared puzzled at the question it was explained to him that, since he now wears an adult size suit, why does he see himself in a child’s size Tzitzit!

The point of this story is simple. The man’s conception of Judaism is that of a child’s because while in every other subject – Maths, English, History, etc. – he proceeded to higher education, in Judaism he stopped at Bar Mitzvah. No wonder he chooses to be assimilated since his choice appears to be between an adult modern world and an archaic irrelevant past.

If parents want to give their children a real choice, they have to give them a strong Jewish education and identity. It is only then that an informed choice can be made.

A father once came to a rabbi with his daughter and asked the rabbi to persuade her not to marry out. The rabbi asked the daughter why she didn’t want to marry a Jew. She replied that her father never took her to synagogue, never ate kosher, never kept Shabbat or the festivals – in short, lived exactly like their non-Jewish neighbours, so why now the hypocrisy in demanding that she marry a Jew! The rabbi turned to the father and said that he agreed with her. The father was dumbstruck and then said that he had brought her to the rabbi to convince her not to marry out, and not to agree with her. The rabbi responded that, in order for her not to marry out, the father had to start living as a Jew. He suggested that the father should lay Tefillin daily and that his wife should start lighting the Shabbat candles. After a lot of persuasion the daughter eventually married a Jew.

To live as a Jew – that is the advice before the crisis, since prevention is the best cure. But what if one is already in a crisis?

When it comes to a Jewish heart one never knows when and how its innate Jewish feelings will be aroused. However, parents should consider the following:

All the members of a Jewish family constitute one organism and, when one part of it needs special treatment, it can be given in one of two ways; either directly, if possible, or indirectly, through strengthening other parts of the body, particularly those that govern the functions of the entire organism. The head of the family is called the Baal Habayit and the wife is called the Akeret HaBayit, corresponding to the heart of the family. Thus, strengthening the commitment to the Torah and mitzvot on the part of the parents has a beneficial effect upon all the members of the family. Of course, it may sometimes entail certain difficulties by having to make some changes, perhaps even radical ones, in regard to habits and lifestyle. On the other hand, considering the far-reaching benefits, and especially the fact that parents surely would not consider anything too difficult if it could be beneficial to their children, of what significance can any difficulty be? Often, living more Jewishly is easier than it would seem.

There is the assurance that, however one’s everyday life and conduct was in the past, a Jew can always start a new life through Teshuvah – which literally means returning to one’s essence.

Jewish Attitudes Toward Non-Jews

Level: Basic

• You don’t have to be Jewish to find favor in G-d’s eyes
• G-d gave only seven basic commandments to gentiles
• Yiddish words for gentiles are goy, shiksa and shkutz
• Judaism does not approve of interfaith marriage, but it is very common
• Jews do not proselytize, but it is possible to convert to Judaism

FriendsJudaism maintains that the righteous of all nations have a place in the world to come. This has been the majority rule since the days of the Talmud. Judaism generally recognizes that Christians and Moslems worship the same G-d that we do and those who follow the tenets of their religions can be considered righteous in the eyes of G-d.

Contrary to popular belief, Judaism does not maintain that Jews are better than other people. Although we refer to ourselves as G-d’s chosen people, we do not believe that G-d chose the Jews because of any inherent superiority. According to the Talmud (Avodah Zarah 2b), G-d offered the Torah to all thenations of the earth, and the Jews were the only ones who accepted it. The story goes on to say that the Jews were offered the Torah last, and accepted it only because G-d held a mountain over their heads! (In Ex. 19:17, the words generally translated as “at the foot of the mountain” literally mean “underneath the mountain”!) Another traditional story suggests that G-d chose the Jewish nation because they were the lowliest of nations, and their success would be attributed to G-d’s might rather than their own ability. Clearly, these are not the ideas of a people who think they are better than other nations.

Because of our acceptance of Torah, Jews have a special status in the eyes of G-d, but we lose that special status when we abandon Torah. Furthermore, the blessings that we received from G-d by accepting the Torah come with a high price: Jews have a greater responsibility than non-Jews. While non-Jews are only obligated to obey the seven commandments given to Noah, Jews are responsible for fulfilling the 613 mitzvot in the Torah, thus G-d will punish Jews for doing things that would not be a sin for non-Jews.

The Seven Laws of Noah

According to traditional Judaism, G-d gave Noah and his family seven commandments to observe when he saved them from the flood. These commandments, referred to as the Noahic or Noahide commandments, are inferred from Genesis Ch. 9, and are as follows: 1) to establish courts of justice; 2) not to commit blasphemy; 3) not to commit idolatry; 4) not to commit incest and adultery; 5) not to commit bloodshed; 6) not to commit robbery; and 7) not to eat flesh cut from a living animal. These commandments are fairly simple and straightforward, and most of them are recognized by most of the world as sound moral principles. Any non-Jew who follows these laws has a place in the world to come.

The Noahic commandments are binding on all people, because all people are descended from Noah and his family. The 613 mitzvot of the Torah, on the other hand, are only binding on the descendants of those who accepted the commandments at Sinai and upon those who take on the yoke of the commandments voluntarily (by conversion). In addition, the Noahic commandments are applied more leniently to non-Jews than the corresponding commandments are to Jews, because non-Jews do not have the benefit of Oral Torah to guide them in interpreting the laws. For example, worshipping G-d in the form of a man would constitute idolatry for a Jew; however, according to some sources, the Christian worship of Jesus does not constitute idolatry for non-Jews.

Goyim, Shiksas and Shkutzim

The most commonly used word for a non-Jew is goy. The word “goy” means “nation,” and refers to the fact that goyim are members of other nations, that is, nations other than the Children of Israel.

There is nothing inherently insulting about the word “goy.” In fact, the Torah occasionally refers to the Jewish people using the term “goy.” Most notably, in Exodus 19:6, G-d says that the Children of Israel will be “a kingdom of priests and a holy nation,” that is, a goy kadosh. Because Jews have had so many bad experiences with anti-Semitic non-Jews over the centuries, the term “goy” has taken on some negative connotations, but in general the term is no more insulting than the word “gentile.”

The more insulting terms for non-Jews are shiksa (feminine) and shkutz (masculine). I gather that these words are derived from the Hebrew root Shin-Qof-Tzadei, meaning loathsome or abomination. The word shiksa is most commonly used to refer to a non-Jewish woman who is dating or married to a Jewish man, which should give some indication of how strongly Jews are opposed to the idea of intermarriage. The term shkutz is most commonly used to refer to an anti-Semitic man. Both terms can be used in a less serious, more joking way, but in general they should be used with caution.

If you are offended to hear that Jewish culture has a negative term for non-Jews, I would recommend that you stop and think about the many negative terms and stereotypes that your culture has for Jews.

Interfaith Marriages

I once received a message from a man who told me that many Jews do not like gentiles. He knew this because his (Jewish) girlfriend’s friends and parents disapproved of him. I explained that these people did not disapprove of him because he was Christian; they disapproved of him because he was a Christian dating a Jew, which is another issue altogether.

Traditional Judaism does not permit interfaith marriages. The Torah states that the children of such marriages would be lost to Judaism (Deut. 7:3-4), and experience has shown the truth of this passage all too well. The 2000 National Jewish Population Survey found that only a third of interfaith couples raise their children Jewish, despite increasing efforts in the Reform and Conservative communities to welcome interfaith couples.

This may reflect the fact that Jews who intermarry are not deeply committed to their religion in the first place: if something is important to you, why would you marry someone who doesn’t share it? Certainly, the statistics show that intermarried Jews are overwhelmingly less likely to be involved in Jewish activities: 85% of Jewish couples have or attend a Pesach seder, while only 41% of intermarried Jews do; 66% of Jewish couples fast on Yom Kippur while only 26% of intermarried Jews do; 59% of Jewish couples belong to a synagogue while only 15% of intermarried Jews do. These statistics and more are sufficiently alarming to be a matter of great concern to the Jewish community. And the rate of intermarriage has grown dramatically in recent years: according to the Jewish Databank, the rate of intermarriage has risen from 13% in 1970 to 47% since 1996, though the rate of intermarriage seems to have stopped increasing. One Orthodox Jew I know went so far as to state that intermarriage is accomplishing what Hitler could not: the destruction of the Jewish people. That is an extreme view, but it vividly illustrates how seriously many Jews take the issue of intermarriage.

The more liberal branches of Judaism have tried to embrace intermarried couples, hoping to slow the hemorrhaging from our community, but it is questionable how effective this has been in stemming the tide, given the statistics that intermarried couples are unlikely to have any Jewish involvement or to raise their children Jewish.

Dennis Prager and Joseph Telushkin provide an excellent discussion of the issues involved in intermarriage in their book The Nine Questions People Ask About Judaism. They note that if the non-Jewish spouse truly shares the same values as the Jewish spouse, then the non-Jew is welcome to convert to Judaism, and if the non-Jew does not share the same values, then the couple should not be marrying in the first place.

If you are considering interfaith dating or marriage, consider this:

Many people who are considering interfaith marriage or dating casually dismiss any objections as prejudice, but there are some practical matters you should consider. And before you casually dismiss this as ivory tower advice from a Jewish ghetto, let me point out that my father, my mother and my brother are all intermarried, as well as several of my cousins.

The Stereotypes
Why are you not seeking out a Jewish partner? If you ask many Jews why they don’t want to date other Jews, you will hear the ugliest list of antisemitic stereotypes this side of Nazi propaganda. They will tell you that Jewish men are cheap, neurotic mamma’s boys, not handsome and macho like gentile men. They will tell you that Jewish women are frigid, materialistic and plain, not fun and sexy like gentile women. Interestingly, the stereotypes you hear from gentiles seeking Jews are quite different: that Jewish men are good providers, that they treat women well, that they don’t abuse women or get drunk, and they don’t sleep around; that Jewish women are smart, level-headed and loyal, not bubble-headed bimbos. In fact, there are quite a lot of gentiles who have registered for JDate, a Jewish dating network, because they specifically want to date and marry a Jew. If you think the negative stereotypes don’t fit you, what makes you think they fit Jews of the opposite sex?
 
The Marriage
Where will you get married, who will perform the ceremony and how will it be performed? Most movements of Judaism don’t allow interfaith marriages to be performed in their synagogues, nor do they allow their rabbis to perform interfaith marriages, and before you casually dismiss this as bigotry, let’s remember: you’re the one who is imposing your beliefs (or lack of beliefs) on them, not the other way around. You’re asking them to put a religious stamp of approval on an act that has nothing to do with their religion. You might as well ask the rabbi to say “amen” to a blessing over a ham and cheese sandwich. But now that you know you may have to be married in a church: how do you feel about being married under a cross or crucifix? How will your relatives feel when they are told, “in Jesus’ name, let us say ‘Amen’,” as happened at an interfaith marriage in my family?
 
The Holidays
What will you do when Christmas and Chanukkah overlap? When Easter and Pesach overlap? Whose holiday will you celebrate? Will your gentile husband veto the annual Chanukkah visit to your parents because Christmas is more important, as happened to an intermarried friend of mine? Will your gentile wife be willing to cook and/or eat the cardboard meals of Pesach? Will your gentile spouse be willing to sit through the lengthy seder ritual at your parents’ house, or the lengthy High Holiday services?
 
The Children
How will the children be raised? The Jewish grandparents want a bris, and the gentile grandparents insist on baptism. The Catholic grandparents want the child to learn catechism while the Jewish grandparents are looking forward to the bar mitzvah. Many interfaith couples think they are being oh-so-enlightened by raising the children with both faiths and letting them choose. This makes about as much sense as asking your child to choose which parent’s surname he wants to keep: ultimately, you’re requiring the child to pick favorites with his parents. A Reform rabbi provides an excellent discussion of the problem here. Aside from that, the message you are giving your children is that none of it is real, that none of it matters, that religion is a Chinese menu and you can pick one from Column A and one from Column B. You are certainly welcome to believe that, but don’t expect your local church or synagogue to agree with you. Even the more liberal movements of Judaism don’t approve of bar mitzvah training for a child who is simultaneously receiving religious training in another faith, because it causes too much confusion for the child. If you want your children to learn about all faiths, don’t send them to bar mitzvah training; send them to a comparative religion class.

These are just a few of the more important considerations in interfaith relationships that people tend to gloss over in the heat of passion or in the desire to be politically fashionable.

Conversion

In general, Jews do not try to convert non-Jews to Judaism. In fact, according to halakhah (Jewish Law), rabbis are supposed to make three vigorous attempts to dissuade a person who wants to convert to Judaism.

As the discussion above explained, Jews have a lot of responsibilities that non-Jews do not have. To be considered a good and righteous person in the eyes of G-d, a non-Jew need only follow the seven Noahic commandments, whereas a Jew has to follow all 613 commandments given in the Torah. If the potential convert is not going to follow those extra rules, it’s better for him or her to stay a gentile, and since we as Jews are all responsible for each other, it’s better for us too if that person stayed a gentile. The rabbinically mandated attempt to dissuade a convert is intended to make sure that the prospective convert is serious and willing to take on all this extra responsibility.

Once a person has decided to convert, the proselyte must begin to learn Jewish religion, law and customs and begin to observe them. This teaching process generally takes at least one year, because the prospective convert must experience each of the Jewish holidays; however, the actual amount of study required will vary from person to person (a convert who was raised as a Jew might not need any further education, for example, while another person might need several years).

After the teaching is complete, the proselyte is brought before a Beit Din (rabbinical court) which examines the proselyte and determines whether he or she is ready to become a Jew. If the proselyte passes this oral examination, the rituals of conversion are performed. If the convert is male, he is circumcised (or, if he was already circumcised, a pinprick of blood is drawn for a symbolic circumcision). Both male and female converts are immersed in the mikvah (a ritual bath used for spiritual purification). The convert is given a Jewish name and is then introduced into the Jewish community.

In theory, once the conversion procedure is complete, the convert is as much a Jew as anyone who is born to the religion. In practice, the convert is sometimes treated with caution, because we have had some of bad experiences with converts who later return to their former faith in whole or in part. However, it is important to remember that Abraham himself was a convert, as were all of the matriarchs of Judaism, as was Ruth, an ancestor of King David.

Guantanamo Bay – Repatriation

Aamer repatriation: ‘Arrangements will be put in place’ to ensure public safety, says UK govt

Downing Street told BBC Radio London on Friday the government had “no plans” to detain Shaker Aamer when he returns to the UK, but added that “arrangements will be put in place” to ensure public safety.

Aamer, 46, the last British inmate at Guantanamo Bay, arrived at London’s Biggin Hill airport in a Gulfstream jet at 12.57pm on Friday, having left Guantanamo Naval Air Station at 11.30pm local time (03:30 GMT).

Aamer, who was held for almost 14 years without trial, was born in Saudi Arabia but has British residency, and his family is based in London. His case was debated in the House of Commons in March, with Washington urged to speed up the transfer, which was cleared back in 2007.

Aamer was originally detained in Afghanistan in 2001 and accused of having links to Al-Qaeda. He was later transferred to Guantanamo Bay detention camp, where he has been held without charge.

Human rights charity Reprieve played a key role in the campaign to free Shaker Aamer, representing him in court and ensuring his case stayed in the public eye.

Reprieve was one of the first observers to spot Aamer’s plane leaving Guantanamo Bay, roughly three hours before news of his release was broken in the press.

Aamer has never been charged with a crime or faced trial since he arrived at the notorious high-security US prison in Cuba. The US military claimed he was a “close associate” of Osama Bin Laden and a “recruiter, financier, and facilitator” for Al-Qaeda. Aamer later said he confessed to being a jihadist under torture by the CIA, adding that he would have told interrogators “he was Bin Laden” to make the torture stop.

According to the detainee, US interrogators told him they would rape his five-year-old daughter.

“One interrogator talked about what he would do to my five-year-old daughter in details that destroyed me,”Aamer said, as cited by the Independent.

Late last month, US President Barack Obama agreed to send the last remaining British detainee at Guantanamo Bay back to the UK. Prime Minister David Cameron had raised the issue of Aamer’s imprisonment with Obama back in January, during a visit to the White House. Although the president pledged to “prioritize” the case, Aamer’s legal team complained in August that nothing had been done in reality to help his cause.

Speaking to the press, Aamer’s US legal counsel described Washington’s refusal to release Aamer as “shameful.” One of Aamer’s lawyers, Ramzi Kassem, urged the British government to pressure the White House further. His call appears to have been finally acted on.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn welcomed Aamer’s release and called for the Guantanamo prison to be shut down.

I am delight to hear that Shaker Aamer has finally been released after 13 years in Guantanamo Bay. He is the last British residence to be detained there despite never being brought to trial.”

Now that Shaker has been released, the scandal of Guantanamo detention camp itself must be brought to an end. I hope that Shaker and his family will now be given the time and space to rebuild their lives.”

———————————–

Shaker Aamer, the last British resident held at Guantanamo Bay, has been released after spending 13-years locked up without charge or trial.
He volunteered for a charity in Afghanistan back in 2001, where he was seized by bounty hunters and handed over to U.S. forces.
Two months later, he was transferred to Guantanamo Bay prison, and claims he was tortured while there.

Finally at large: Shaker Aamer freed from Guantanamo, coming home

Friday 30 October 2015 11.56 GMT Last modified on Friday 30 October 2015Shaker Aamer has been released after 14 years of incarceration at Guantánamo Bay, where he was beaten by his US military jailers but never tried for any offence, the UK’s foreign secretary, Philip Hammond, has confirmed.“The Americans announced some weeks ago that they were going to release Shaker Aamer from Guantánamo and I can confirm that he is on his way back to the UK now and he will arrive in Britain later today,” he said.

A spokesman for David Cameron – who had personally raised Aamer’s case with Barack Obama – said there were no plans to detain Aamer on his return. He added: “The prime minister has been clear that the public should be reassured that everything to ensure public safety is in place.”

According to the flight-tracking firm FlightAware, a plane left Guantánamo Bay bound for Biggin Hill airport in southeast London at 11.30pm local time (4.30am GMT). It landed just after 1pm GMT.

Shaker Aamer lands in the UK after release from Guantanamo Bay
While it is unclear where Aamer will be taken on arrival, he has told his lawyers that he wants first to be given a thorough medical examination, and then wishes to see his wife. He has said that he wants to discuss his children with his wife before meeting them.

Aamer may be questioned by anti-terrorism police or MI5 officers, but given that ministers – including Cameron – had campaigned for his release, he is unlikely to need to spend his first night back on British soil in a police cell.

Though the US leaked claims – some extracted from the torture of other detainees – that Aamer fought for al-Qaida and was paid by Osama bin Laden, he was never tried for any offence. He insists he is innocent and was working in Afghanistan for an Islamic charity when he was detained.

When Shaker Aamer is free from Guantánamo the slurs will start

He has said British officials were aware – and on one occasion, present – when he was being beaten by US interrogators. The Foreign Office has said it “did not accept allegations of … complicity in his mistreatment”. Whether he wishes to, or can, pursue his allegations, remains to be seen.

Using testimony from Shaker Aamer and four other detainees, this animated film reveals the daily brutality of life inside Guantánamo.
In January, Cameron raised Aamer’s case with Obama in the White House and won an assurance from the US president he would prioritise the issue. An announcement that Aamer was to be released followed in September. Friday’s actual release came after the passing of a mandatory 30-day notice period that has to be given to the US Congress in such cases.

Aamer’s father-in-law, Saeed Siddique, 73, said he did not believe the family would see him on Friday. “I won’t be meeting him at the airport, it will just be lawyers,” Siddique said. “It was his wish, he said no one come to the airport except lawyers.”

Speaking briefly at the family home in south-west London, Siddique said: “It is a delightful day for all of us. It’s really a miracle. But I have to say we never gave up hope that we would see him again.”

He added that he believed his son-in-law would go directly to hospital. “I don’t know when I will see him. It’s up to his lawyers.”

Asked when Aamer would see his wife and children, Siddique said: “Everybody is happy, but I don’t think they will see him today.”

Reprieve lawyer Cori Crider, who last saw Aamer at the beginning of October, described him as being “more upbeat than I have seen him in years”.

She told Sky News: “He seemed genuinely to think that maybe this was it, there was a light at the end of the tunnel and he was going to see his wife and kids again. Remember, Shaker Aamer is about to meet his youngest son for the first time. Can any of us imagine what that must be like, to have a son who is nearly 14, and be about to meet him for the first time?”

Crider said Aamer was very concerned about his own health, had been on a number of prolonged hunger strikes and had family health issues. A number of doctors had come forward to offer to assist him, she added, and he wanted a thorough medical checkup.

Asked if Aamer would talk publicly about his experiences, Crider said: “I think he will make up his own mind about it, and really, woe betide the person who tries to silence Shaker Aamer.” She added that it would be up to him “how much of his story and the terrible things he witnessed that he wants to tell”.

Former Guantánamo detainee Moazzam Begg said Aamer’s greatest test was yet to come, that of readjusting to normal life.

“Shaker is a courageous, resilient, kind and thoughtful person who has faced the worst the world has to offer and survived,” Begg said. “His qualities have been acknowledged by his tormentors and I’m certain he won’t disappoint when he’s ready to tell his side of the story. Until he does, he deserves our respect, support, prayers and right to family life and privacy.”

Andy Worthington, co-director of the We Stand With Shaker campaign, said: “We’re delighted to hear that his long and unacceptable ordeal has come to an end. We hope he won’t be detained by the British authorities on his return and gets the psychological and medical care that he needs to be able to resume his life with his family in London.”

Amnesty International UK’s director, Kate Allen, said: “After so many twists and turns in this appalling case, we won’t really believe that Shaker Aamer is actually being returned to the UK until his plane touches down on British soil.

“We should remember what a terrible travesty of justice this case has been, and that having been held in intolerable circumstances for nearly 14 years, Mr Aamer will need to time to readjust to his freedom.”

Judging by the descriptions given by Clive Stafford Smith, the director of Reprieve, Aamer will need prolonged treatment. He has been on hunger strike and held in solitary confinement.

He can be expected to receive compensation, perhaps as much as £1m, as 15 other British residents and citizens did in 2010, in return for dropping a civil case for unlawful imprisonment. They abandoned their demands for evidence they said would back their case that MI5 and MI6 were involved in their rendition to Guantánamo Bay.

In 2010, officers from the Metropolitan police visited Aamer at the US military jail in Cuba where they questioned his allegations of British security and intelligence agency complicity in his mistreatment. Aamer has said British officials were aware he was beaten at Bagram, the US prison in Afghanistan, before he was secretly flown to Guantánamo, and on one occasion a British intelligence officer was present when US interrogators banged his head against a wall.

It is unclear whether Aamer’s lawyers have advised him to agree to a confidentiality agreement and to voluntary security measures. Binyam Mohamed agreed to such measures, including regular reports to a police station, when he was released.

Aamer, born in Medina, Saudi Arabia, 47 years ago, is a British resident with a British wife and four British children – his fourth child, Faris, was born the day he was flown to Guantánamo.

His wife, Zin Siddique, and her family live in Battersea, south London, where the MP Jane Ellison has campaigned for his release.

He was captured by what are said to be bounty hunters from the anti-Taliban Northern Alliance in Afghanistan and handed over to US forces in December 2001. Two months later, he was rendered to Guantánamo.

Repeated calls by successive British governments for his release will weaken the impact of any hostile stories, or smear tactics, directed at Aamer on his return.

It’s not just Putin that makes Zionists hate Russia

Commentary — The following is a December 25, 1998 article from the Washington Post that has been archived in the Jewish Virtual Library.  The bluntness with which Russian Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov condemned the Zionist role in ruining his country during the 1990s is breathtaking. 

Zyuganov was poised to win the upcoming Russian Presidential elections. Out of desperation, Yeltsin appointed Vladimir Putin (then 46 years old) prime minister in order to save Zionist power in Russia from the prospect of a Zyuganov victory Remember, Yeltsin stole those elections from Zyganov in 1996 by hook and by crook, using every trick in the book. (Former Russian President Dmitri Medvedev publicly admitted that Yeltsin had not actually won that election against Zyuganov.)

Putin didn’t actually work out the way Zionists had hoped, and has himself come into the Zio cross hairs. But it is important to realize that in Russia, both on the nationalist right and the Communist left, there is a great deal of animosity towards Zionist power that goes well beyond Putin, and this goes a long way in explaining the Zionist crusade against Russia.


Communist Party Leader Attacks Jews


In an open letter, Communist Party leader Gennady Zyuganov claimed there is a Zionist conspiracy to seize power in Russia and asserted that “Zionist capital” has wrecked Russia’s economy. The letter appeared to be aimed at the Russian business tycoons known as the “oligarchs,” who were instrumental in reelecting President Boris Yeltsin over Zyuganov in 1996. Most of these business people are Jewish, including Boris Berezovsky, who has called for outlawing the Communist Party in Russia.

Zyuganov wrote the letter in the aftermath of criticism in parliament of Albert Makashov, a member of his party. In recent months, Makashov has made virulently anti-Semitic statements. The lower house of parliament, the State Duma, in which Zyuganov’s party is the largest single faction, has refused to condemn Makashov.

“Zionism has in reality revealed itself as one of the varieties of the theory and practice of the most aggressive imperialistic circles striving for world supremacy,” according to Zyuganov, who also compared Zionism to fascism. “The only difference between them is that Hitler’s Nazism was performing under the guise of German nationalism and sought world supremacy openly. And Zionism, performing under the guise of Jewish nationalism, is operating stealthily, using other people’s hands.”

Zyuganov said that by attacking Zionism he did not mean to attack Jews. “We have never put an equation mark between the notions of a ‘Jew’ and a ‘Zionist,’” he said. “The spread of Zionist ideology among the Jewish people is by far not the fault, but a misfortune of the Jewish people.”

Zyuganov added that Jews were welcome to leave Russia, or recognize Russia “as their only “Motherland,” or “assimilate” into its ethnic groups, but they could not be some kind of “inner emigrant in it, acting for the damage of her interests in favor of another state or an international corporation.”

“One of the reasons of the present catastrophic conditions of the country, mass impoverishment and dying out of its population,” Zyuganov insisted, was the “Zionization of the government authorities.” He claimed these officials were ignoring “the aggressive, destructive role of Zionist capital in ruining Russia’s economy and plundering her property owned by all.”

Yeltsin a puppet of Jewish oligarchs, according to Jewish Telegraphic Agency

Precommentary — This 16-year-old article from the Jewish Telegraphic Agency underscores a point often made on the David Duke Show about fact that during the administration of Russian President Boris Yeltsin the assets of the Russian people were plundered by Jewish oligarchs. As a result, the Russian people were plunged into incredible poverty and suffered a “demographic collapse,” with the Russian male life expectancy plummeting by eight years.

Tycoons with Jewish roots accused of ‘puppeteering’ Russian leader

by LEV KRICHEVSKY, Jewish Telegraphic Agency

Friday, May 28, 1999

But since Russian President Boris Yeltsin dismissed the government of Yevgeny Primakov and appointed Sergei Stepashin as prime minister earlier this month, these tycoons have leapt back into Russia’s chaotic political fray — and onto the radar screens of the country’s newspapers and televisions. Though they have varying levels of identification with the Jewish community, the tycoons are associated in the public’s eye with Judaism,

Wary of an anti-Semitic backlash, Jewish leaders are carefully watching the oligarchs’ return to their powerful, behind-the-political-scenes role.The names appearing most often in the media are Boris Berezovsky, a controversial figure with allegedly close ties to Yeltsin’s family, and Anatoly Chubais, the leader of the young reformers and a former first deputy prime minister who is now head of the state electrical utility monopoly. Both were openly delighted by Primakov’s fall. Berezovsky, who has converted to Christianity, is open about his Jewish roots; Chubais is not.

5_ch_photoarchive_images_image_file_100

Chubais with Boris Yeltsin

The change in Berezovsky’s status has been particularly noticeable. Only one month ago, the man often referred to as Russia’s “modern-day Rasputin” narrowly escaped arrest on corruption charges and was forced to stay out of the country. A warrant for his arrest was later lifted.

Another figure whose name often appeared on front-page articles in the past two weeks is Vladimir Goussinsky, a media mogul and the president of the Russian Jewish Congress.

Goussinsky traditionally keeps a low profile, yet he is believed to have recently formed an alliance with Berezovsky to have his business interests represented by some of the key figures in the new government.

Stepashin, 47, a staunch ally of Yeltsin, was responsible for much of the military operation in Russian’s southern breakaway republic of Chechnya in which Russia lost tens of thousands of its citizens.

Stepashin said he would keep the backbone of the previous government, but he is likely to dismiss the Communist ministers brought in by Primakov.

Communist leader Gennady Zyuganov was quoted as saying he would not like to see Stepashin surround himself with “cawing predators who are still stealing from the country as they did before,” a veiled reference to the oligarchs and the young reformers.

In the past, the oligarchs have been frequent targets of anti-Semitic propaganda, much of it coming from the Communists.

After the lower house of Parliament, which is dominated by the Communists, approved his nomination last week, Stepashin said his government would fight economic crime and vowed to take bold steps to implement economic reforms and to fight the crime and corruption that have plagued Russia since the collapse of communism.

A tough-talking, round-faced man who does not belong to any party, Stepashin has been in politics since 1990. He was first deputy prime minister and interior minister under Primakov.

Some analysts here argue that he is merely a transitional figure, while others say Yeltsin has picked him to be his political heir in the 2000 presidential elections.

According to some, Berezovsky’s influence is already being felt.

On Saturday, Yeltsin appointed Vladimir Rushailo to the key post of interior minster.

Russian media have described both Rushailo and newly appointed First Deputy Prime Minister Nikolai Aksyonenko as “tools” of Berezovsky. Rushailo has denied having any links with Berezovsky, and Stepashin denies any outside force influenced him in his choices.

Among those ministers who retained their jobs in the new Cabinet is Foreign Minister Igor Ivanov. Stepashin must finalize the lineup in the coming days.

But despite the denials, some politicians are already convinced that someone else is pulling the strings.

The government is “absolutely servile. We will soon figure out who is the puppeteer — be it Berezovsky or someone else — by the lineup of the new Cabinet,” said Grigory Yavlinsky, head of the Yabloko liberal parliamentary group.

Not everyone agrees with Yavlinsky’s assessment.

“I don’t see any oligarchs here,” said Alexander Livshitz, Russia’s former finance minister. He said the country’s top business people were still regrouping after last year’s economic crisis in which most of them suffered heavy losses.

Meanwhile, Jewish leaders are maintaining a low profile on the issue. But they note that Stepashin visited the Choral Synagogue, Moscow’s main synagogue, last year to discuss the restitution of Jewish property, most importantly the fate of the dozens of Torah scrolls, which are now stored in state archives and museums.

“We have been in constant contact with Stepashin and his ministry over the restitution issue,” said Pinchas Goldschmidt, Moscow’s chief rabbi.

As interior minister, Russia’s top police official, Stepashin also had to deal with the issues of rising political extremism and anti-Semitism that became especially prominent in the wake of last year’s crisis.

Two months ago, a visiting delegation of the Anti-Defamation League met with Stepashin to discuss the issue. He told the delegation he was strongly behind enforcing the laws against anti-Semitism in Russia. Abraham Foxman, the ADL’s national director, described Stepashin after the Moscow meeting as “someone who understands the problem of anti-Semitism and wants to do something about it.”

But some Russian Jewish leaders see a different silver lining in Stepashin’s appointment.

“It’s good to see that after two tries Russia has finally found a prime minister who is not Jewish,” said Goldschmidt, referring to the fact that both previous heads of Cabinet dismissed by Yeltsin in the past 14 months — Sergei Kiriyenko and Primakov — had Jewish roots.

“It is good for the Jewish community because people tend to blame the entire community for the mistakes of individuals.”

“Russian” Oligarchs Mostly Zionist Supremacists, says Israeli Media

Vitaly Malkin

A large number of the infamous “Russian” oligarchs are in fact Zionists who hold—and conceal—their dual Israeli-Russian citizenship, a new article in the Israeli newspaper Haaretz has revealed.

Titled “Just don’t call them Gaydamak: Meet Israel’s Russian oligarchs,” the article confirms what knowledgeable observers have known for a long time: that Jewish Supremacists took advantage of the chaos in the collapsing Soviet Union to emerge from their middle-ranking Communist Party membership to seize control of huge parts of that nation’s economy.

According to the Haaretz article, “more than a handful of Russia’s richest men have made their way to Israel in recent years, but most keep their ties to the Jewish State out of the limelight for fear of antagonizing the Russian authorities or hurting their business interests.

“In the past decade, wealthy businessmen from the former Soviet Union have flocked to Israel in private planes via the Moscow-Tel Aviv route.

“They live below the radar, zealously guarding their privacy and hiding their assets and Israeli citizenship.

Valery Kogan

“Many of them fear that if their Israeli assets and citizenships were revealed, it would complicate their relations with Russian authorities or hurt their business interests.

“A good example is the case of Vitaly Malkin, one of the richest and most influential politicians in Russia.

“A former banker who Forbes estimated to be worth $1 billion, he was elected to the Russian Senate in 2004 and quickly accumulated power and influences in the halls of government.

“Among other things, Malkin was Gaydamak’s partner in the company Avalon, which was involved in a scandal involving Angolan debt to Russia.

“Malkin appeared to be a man inevitably on the rise until March of this year, when he was forced to resign from government in shame following a shocking revelation: He was an Israeli citizen.

“A mysterious oligarch who doesn’t hide his connection to Israel is Valery Kogan.

Alexander Mashkevitch

“In 2008, Kogan made headlines here when he bought five plots of land covering 11 dunams (nearly 3 acres) in the luxury community of Caesarea for NIS 64 million.

“Kogan is close to Putin, and Forbes estimated his fortune to be $1.8 billion.

“Together with his business partner Dmitry Kamenshchik, Kogan owns Moscow’s Domodedovo International Airport, the largest airport in Russia, serving 28 million passengers per year.

“He also owns an $18-million mansion in Connecticut and in 2009, bought an apartment in the Sea One residential tower project along the Tel Aviv promenade for NIS 110 million.

“Kogan lives in Russia most of the year, visiting Israel every now and

then.

“Kogan’s neighbor in the Sea One project is Alexander Mashkevitch, a Russian oligarch who resides in Israel part of the year.

“He was ranked number 287 on Forbes’ 2010 list of the richest people in the world. At the time, the magazine estimated his wealth to be $3.3 billion.

“Mashkevitch was born in Kyrgyzstan in 1954 and made his money in the mining industry. He has held Israeli citizenship since 1991.

“Today, he owns mines in Kazakhstan, Africa and Eastern Europe. His other business holdings include an insurance company in Kazakhstan.

“Together with his business partners and the Kazakh government, he controls 54 percent of the shares of the mining company Eurasian Natural Resources Corporation.

“In the past, Mashkevitch has been tied to money laundering investigations in Belgium, the United States and Switzerland. He denies the allegations and has never been indicted or convicted.

“Moshe (Viatcheslav) Kantor, 60, is the president of the European Jewish

Congress and the person behind the Russian fertilizer empire Acron Group.

“The Russian tycoon, who Forbes estimated to be the 39th richest person in Russia with $2.3 billion, has ties to Israel but doesn’t significantly invest here.

“Very active in philanthropy and Jewish organizations, he splits his time between his homes and offices across Europe, particularly in Russia and Switzerland, and his mansion in Herzliya.

“Vladimir Gusinsky is a Russian oligarch who once held great influence in Israel but these days makes do with visits.

“In Russia, Gusinsky because a media baron in the early 1990s and was seen as one of the big businessmen closest to the government of then-Russian President Boris Yeltsin. He is now the owner of the Russian-language television network RTVi.

“Another billionaire who maintains ties with Israel is Ihor Kolomoyskyi, the third-richest person in Ukraine.

Vladimir Gusinsky

“Forbes estimated his wealth at $3 billion, while the Ukranian magazine Korrespondent put it closer to $6 billion.

“He is involved in philanthropic activity and contributes to various institutions, among them Yad Vashem.

“In Ukraine, Kolomoyskyi is one of the cofounders of PrivatBank and a major stockholder in Naftogaz, the largest gas and oil company in the country.

“He is also one of the key partners in Privat Group, one of the largest holding companies in Ukraine, through which he controls the Ukrainian national airline, Aerosvit, which declared bankruptcy in 2012.”

Israeli Colonel Leading ISIL Terrorists Captured in Iraq

EXCLUSIVE: Israeli Colonel Leading ISIL Terrorists Captured in Iraq

Sourced from Fars News Agency, Tehran – Darkmoon
Identical report available on Syrianfreepressnetwork

We have no idea if this story is true or not. Readers are invited to make up their own minds. It has been sent to us by a reliable correspondent, however,  who vouches for its authenticity. If true, this story proves beyond any shadow of doubt that Israel is behind the most sinister and bloodthirsty terrorist organization in the world, known variously as ISIS, ISIL, Islamic State (IS), or Daesh.

Israeli Colonel Yusi Shahak of the Golani Brigade,
captured in Iraq by Iraqi forces along with several other ISIL terrorists

TEHRAN (FNA)- Iraqi security and popular forces have caught an Israeli colonel from Golani Brigade along with a number of ISIL terrorists, a commander disclosed on Thursday.”The security and popular forces have held captive an Israeli colonel,” a commander of Iraq’s popular mobilization forces said on Thursday.

“The Zionist officer is ranked colonel and had participated in the Takfiri ISIL group’s terrorist operations,” he added.

Noting that he was arrested along with a number of ISIL terrorists, the commander said, “The Israeli colonel’s name is Yusi Oulen Shahak and is ranked colonel in Golani Brigade of the Zionist regime’s army with the security and military code of Re34356578765az231434.”

He said that the relevant bodies are now interrogating the Israeli colonel to understand the reasons behind his fighting alongside the ISIL forces and the presence of other Zionist officers among ISIL terrorists.

The Iraqi security forces said the captured colonel has already made shocking confessions.

ISISisilIsraelColonelMeme

Several ISIL militants arrested in the last one year had already confessed that Israeli agents from Mossad and other Israeli espionage and intelligence bodies were present in the first wave of ISIL attacks on Iraq and capture of Mosul in Summer 2014, but no ranking Israeli agent had been arrested.

Political and military experts told FNA that the capture of the Israeli colonel will leave a grave impact on Iraq’s war strategy, including partnership with Israeli allies.

In a relevant development in July, Iraqi volunteer forces announced that they had shot down a drone that was spying on the Arab country’s security forces in the city of Fallujah, Western Iraq.

Iraq’s popular forces reported that they had brought down a hostile surveillance aircraft over the Southeastern Fallujah in Anbar Province.

They said that the wreckage of the ISIL’s spy drone carried ‘Israel-Made’ labels. This was not the first Israeli-made drone downed in Iraq. In August an Israeli Hermes drone was shot down in the vicinity of Baghdad Airport.

Could THIS man
have anything interesting to teach us about ISIS
and its secret agenda?

US Impotence and Russia’s Intervention in Syria: A Watershed Return to International Diplomacy?

 

The end of international law and diplomacy

The end of the Cold War was welcomed as a new era of peace and security in which swords would be transformed into plows, former enemies into friends, and the world would witness a new dawn of universal love, peace and happiness.

Of course, none of that happened. What happened is that the Anglo-Zionist Empire convinced itself that it had “won the Cold War” and that it now was in charge. Of the entire planet, no less. And why not? It had built anywhere between 700 to 1000 military bases (depending on your definition of “base”) worldwide and it had split up the entire globe into several areas of exclusive responsibility named “commands”. The last time any power had mustered the megalomania needed to distribute various parts of the planet to to different commands was the Papacy in 1494 with its (in)famous “Treaty of Tordesillas”.

And to make that point abundantly clear, the Empire decided to make an example and unleashed its power against tiny Yugoslavia. Yugoslavia, a founding member of the Non-Aligned Movement was viciously attacked and dismembered, creating an immense wave of refugees, mostly Serbs, which the democratic and civilized world chose to ignore. Furthermore, the Empire unleashed yet another war, this time in Russia, which pitched the semi-comatose Eltsin regime against what would later become a key part of al-Qaeda, ISIS and Daesh: the Wahabis in Chechnia. Again, many hundreds of thousands of “invisible refugees” resulted from that war too, but they were also largely ignored by the democratic and civilized world, especially the ethnic Russians. It took Russia a full decade to finally crush this Wahabi-Takfiri insurgency but, eventually, Russia prevailed. And by that time, the AngloZionists had turned their attention elsewhere: the US and Israeli “deep states” jointly planned and executed the 9/11 false flag operation which gave them the perfect excuse to declare a “global war on terror” which basically gave the AngloZionists a worldwide “license to kill” à la 007, except that in this case the target was not a person, but entire countries.

We all know what followed: Iraq, Afghanistan, Philippines, Somalia, Ethiopia, Somalia, Sudan, Yemen, Mali, Pakistan, Syria, Libya, the Ukraine – everywhere the US was at war, whether officially or covertly. The spectrum ranged from an (attempted) complete invasion of a country (Afghanistan) to the support of various terrorist groups (Iran, Syria) to the full financing and management of a Nazi regime (the Ukraine). The US also gave full support to the Wahabis in their long crusade against the Shia (KSA, Bahrain, Yemen, Syria, Iran). What all these wars had in common is that they were all completely illegal – the US and any ad hoc “coalition of the willing” became an acceptable substitute for the UN Security Council.

Here again it is important to remind everybody – especially those Muslims who rejoiced at the bombing of the Serbs – that this all began with the completely illegal destruction of Yugoslavia followed by an even more illegal bombing of Serbia.

Of course, the Empire also suffered from a few humiliating defeats: in 2006 Hezbollah inflicted on Israel what might well be one of the most humiliating military defeats in modern history while in 2008 a tiny force of truly heroic Ossetian fighters backed by a comparatively small Russian military contingent (only a small part of the Russian military was involved) made mincemeat of the the US-trained and US-funded Georgian military: the war was over in 4 days. Still, by and large, the first decade of the 21stcentury saw a triumph of the law of the jungle over international law and a full vindication of the age old principle of “might makes right”.

Logically, these were also the years when the US diplomacy basically ceased to exist. The sole function of US diplomats remained the delivery of ultimatums “comply or else…” and the Empire simply stopped negotiating about anything. Seasoned and sophisticated diplomats like James Baker were replaced either by psychopaths like Madelaine Albright, Hillary Clinton and Samantha Power, or by mediocre non-entities like John Kerry and Susan Rice. After all, how sophisticated must one be to threaten, bully and deliver ultimatums? Things got so bad that the Russians openly complained about the “lack of professionalism” of their US counterparts.

As for the poor Russians with their pathetic insistence that the norms of international law must be observed, they looked hopelessly passé. I won’t even mention the European politicians here. They were best characterized by the Mayor of London, Boris Johnson, who called them “great supine protoplasmic invertebrate jellies‘.

But then, something changed. Dramatically.

The failure of force

Suddenly everything went south. Every single US victory somehow turned into a defeat: from Afghanistan to Libya, every US ‘success’ had somehow morphed itself into a situation where the best option, if not the only one left, was to “declare victory and leave”. This begs the obvious question “what happened?”.

The first obvious conclusion is that the US forces and their so-called “allies” have very little staying power. While they are reasonably skilled at invading a country, they then rapidly lose control of most of it. It is one thing to invade a country, but quite another to administer it, nevermind rebuilt it. It turns out that US-led “coalitions of the willing” were unable to get anything done.

Second, it became obvious that the enemy which was supposedly defeated had really only gone into hiding and was waiting for a better time to come back with a vengeance. Iraq is the perfect example of that: far form being really “defeated”, the Iraqi Army (wisely) chose to disband itself and come back in the shape of a formidable Sunni insurrection which itself gradually morphed into ISIS. But Iraq was not an isolated case. The same happened pretty much everywhere.

There are those who will object and that that the US does not care if it controls a country or if it destroys it, as long as the other guy does not get to “win”. I disagree. Yes, the US will always prefer the destruction of a country to an outright victory of the other side, but this does not mean that the US does not prefer to control a country if possible. In other words, when a country sinks into chaos and violence this is not a US victory, but most definitely a US loss.

What the US missed is that diplomacy makes the use of force much more effective. First, careful diplomacy makes it possible to build a wide coalition of countries willing to support collective action. Second, diplomacy also makes it possible to reduce the number of countries which openly oppose collective action. Does anybody remember that Syria actually sent forces to support US troops against Saddam Hussein in Desert Storm? Sure, they did not make a big difference, but their presence gave the US the peace of mind that Syria would at least not overtly oppose the US policy. By getting the Syrians to support Desert Storm, James Backer made it very hard for the Iraqis to argue that this was an anti-Arab, anti-Muslim or even an anti-Baathist coalition and he made Saddam Hussein look completely isolated (even when the Iraqis began shooting missiles at Israel). Second, diplomacy makes it possible to reduce the overall amount of force used because “instant overkill” is not needed to show the enemy that you really mean business. Third, diplomacy is the necessary tool to achieve legitimacy and legitimacy is crucial when engaged in a long, protracted, conflict. Finally, the consensus which emerges from a successful diplomatic effort prevents the rapid erosion of the public support for a military effort. But all these factors were ignored by the USA in the GWOT (Global War on Terror) and the “Arab Spring” revolutions which now have come to a screeching halt.

A diplomatic triumph for Russia

This week saw a true diplomatic triumph for Russia culminating in Friday’s multilateral negotiations in Vienna which brought together the foreign ministers of Russia, the US, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. The fact that this meeting took place right after Assad’s visit to Moscow clearly indicates that the sponsors of Daesh and al-Qaeda are now forced to negotiate on Moscow’s terms. How did that happen?

As I have been mantrically repeating it since the Russian operation in Syria began, the Russian military force actually sent to Syria is very small. Yes, it is a very effective one, but it is still very small. In fact, the members of the Russian Duma have announced that the costs of the entire operation will probably fit in the normal Russian Defense budget which has monies allocated for “training”. However, what the Russian have achieved with this small intervention is rather amazing, not only in military terms, but especially in political terms.

Not only has the Empire (very reluctantly) had to accept that Assad would have to stay in power for the foreseeable future, but Russia is now gradually but inexorably building up a real regional coalition which is willing to fight Daesh on the same side as the Syrian government forces. Even before the Russian operation began, Russia had the support of Syria, Iran, Iraq and Hezbollah. There are also strong signs that the Kurds are basically also willing to work with Russia and Assad. On Friday it was announced that Jordan would also coordinate some as of yet unspecified military actions with Russia and that a special coordination center will be set up in Amman.

There are also very strong rumors that Egypt will also join the Russian-lead coalition. There are also signs that Russia and Israel are also, if not working together, at least not working against each other: the Russian and Israelis have created a special line to directly talk to each other on a military level. The bottom line is this: regardless of the sincerity of the different parties, everybody in the region now feels a strong pressure to at least not look opposed to the Russian effort. That, by itself, is a huge triumph for Russian diplomacy.

Putin’s secret weapon: the truth

The current situation is, of course, totally unacceptable for the Global Hegemon: not only has the US-lead coalition of 62 countries managed to conduct 22,000 strikes with nothing to show for it, but the comparatively smaller Russian coalition has managed to completely displace the Empire and negate all its plans. And the most formidable weapon used by Putin in his proxy war with the USA was not even a military one, but simply speaking the truth.

Both at his UN speech and, this week, at his speech at the Valdai Conference Putin has done what no other world leader before has ever dared doing: he openly call the US regime incompetent, irresponsible, lying, hypocritical and terminally arrogant. That kind of public “dissing” has had a huge impact worldwide because by the time Putin said these words more or less everybody knew that this was absolutely true.

The US does treat all its allies as “vassals” (see Valdai speech) and the US is the prime culprit for all the terrible crises the world now has to face (see UN speech). What Putin did is basically say “the Emperor is naked”. In comparison, Obama’s lame speech was comically pathetic. What we are witnessing now is an amazing turn around. After decades marked by the “might makes right” principle advocated by the USA, suddenly we are in a situation where no amount of military might is of any use to a beleaguered President Obama: what use are 12 aircraft carriers when you personally look like a clown?

After 1991 it appeared that the only superpower left was so powerful and unstoppable that it did not need to bother itself with such minor things like diplomacy or respect for international law. Uncle Sam felt like he was the sole ruler, the Planetary Hegemon. China was just a “big Walmart”, Russia a “gas station” and Europe an obedient poodle (the latter is, alas, quite true). The myth of US invincibility was just that, of course, a myth: since WWII the USA has not won a single real war (Grenada or Panama do not qualify). In fact, the US military fared even much worse in Afghanistan that the under-trained, under-equipped, under-fed and under-financed Soviet 40th Army which, at least, kept all the major cities and main roads under Soviet control and which did some meaningful development of the civilian infrastructure of the country (which the US is still using in 2015). Nevertheless, the myth of US invincibility only really came crashing down when Russia put a stop to it in 2013 by preventing a US assault on Syria by a mix of diplomatic and military means. Uncle Sam was livid, but could do nothing about besides triggering a coup in Kiev and an economic war against Russia, neither of which have succeeded in their goals.

As for Putin, instead of being deterred by all the US efforts, he invited Assad to Moscow.

Assad’s Moscow visit as yet another indicator of US impotence

This week’s visit by Assad was nothing short of extraordinary. Not only did the Russian succeed in getting Assad out of Syria and to Moscow and then back without the bloated US intelligence community noticing anything, but unlike most heads of state, Assad spoke face to face to some of the most powerful men in Russia.

First, Assad met with Putin, Lavrov and Shoigu. They spoke for a total of three hours (which, by itself, is quite remarkable). They were later joined by Medvedev for a private dinner. Guess who else joined them? Mikhail Fradkov, Head of the Russian Foreign Intelligence Service, and Nikolai Patrushev, Head of the Russian Security Council:

Normally, heads of state do not meet personally with men like Fradkov or Patrushev and, instead, they send their own experts. In this case, however, the topic discussed was important enough to 1) get Assad personally to the Kremlin and 2) get all the top players in the Kremlin around the same table for a personal discussion with Assad.

Obviously, not a word came out from this meeting, but there are two main theories circulating out there about what was discussed.

The first theory says that Assad was told in no unclear terms that his days were numbered and that he would have to leave.

The second one says the exact opposite: that Assad was brought in to signal to him, and the US, that he had the full support of Russia.

I don’t believe that either one of these is correct, but the second one is, I think, probably closer to the truth. After all, if the goal was to tell Assad that he had to go, a simple phone call would have been enough, really. Maybe a visit by Lavrov. As for “backing Assad”, that would go in direct contradiction with what the Russians have been saying all along: they are not backing “Assad” as a person, although they do recognize him as the sole legitimate President of Syria, but they are backing the right of the Syrian people to be the only ones to decide who should be in power in Syria. And that, by the way, is something that Assad himself has also agreed to (according to Putin). Likewise, Assad has also agreed to work with any non-Daesh opposition forces willing to fight against Daesh alongside the Syrian military (again, according to Putin).

No, while I believe that the meeting between Assad and Putin was, at least in part, a message to the USA and the others so-called “friends of Syria”, indicating that their “Assad must go” plan had failed, I believe that the main purpose of the behind-closed-doors meeting with all the top leaders of Russia was something else: my guess is that what was discussed was a major and long term alliance between Russia and Syria which would formally revive the kind of alliance Syria had with the Soviet Union in the past. While I can only speculate about the exact terms of such an alliance, it is my guess that this plan, probably coordinated with Iran has two major aspects:

a) military component: Daesh must be crushed.

b) political component: Syria will not be allowed to fall under US control.

Considering that the Russian military operation is assumed by most Russian experts to be scheduled to last about 3 months, we are dealing here with separate, middle to long term, plan which will require the Syrian armed forces to be rebuilt while Russia, Iran and Iraq jointly coordinate the struggle against Daesh. And, indeed, it was announced on Friday that Iraq had authorized the Russian military to strike at Daesh inside the Iraqi territory. It sure looks like the Russian operation has acted as a catalyst for a region paralyzed by US hypocrisy and incompetence and that the days of Daesh are numbered

Too early to celebrate, but a watershed moment nonetheless

Still, it is way too early to celebrate. The Russians cannot do it all by themselves, and it will be incumbent upon the Syrians and their allies to fight Daesh, one small town at a time. Only boots on the ground will really liberate Syria from Daesh and only true Islam will be able to defeat the Takfiri ideology. This will take a time.

Furthermore, it would be irresponsible to underestimate the Empire’s determination and ability to prevent Russia from looking like “the winner” – that is something which the US imperial ego, raised in centuries of imperial hubris and ignorance, will never be able to cope with. After all, how can the “indispensable nation” accept that the world does not need it at all and that others can even openly oppose and prevail? We can expect the US to use all its (still huge) power to try to thwart and sabotage every Russian or Syrian initiative.

Still, the recent events are the mark that the era of “might makes right” has come to an end and that the notion that the US is an “indispensable nation” or world hegemon has now lost any credibility. After decades in the dark, international diplomacy and the international law are finally becoming relevant again. It is my hope that this is the beginning of a process which will see the USA undergo the same evolution as so many other countries (including Russia) have undergone in the past: from being an empire to becoming a “normal country” again. Alas, when I look at the 2016 Presidential race I get the feeling that this will still be a very long process.

Israeli Rightists push for Takeover of Al-Aqsa compound

Right-wing Jewish organisations are advocating for an increased Israeli presence at the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound.

Right-wing political leaders and groups have called for Israel to exercise control over the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound as the Israeli government takes harsh measures to quell ongoing Palestinian unrest.

Calls for calm at Jerusalem’s Al-Aqsa

Returning to the Mount, a hardline right-wing Zionist organisation, announced this week that it would pay 2,000 shekels ($516) to Jewish-Israelis detained while praying at the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, the third holiest site for Muslims.

Jewish groups refer to the site as the Temple Mount and their increased incursions into the mosque compound have triggered Palestinian protests across the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip.

Although formally banned from praying there, Israeli activists enjoy police escort when they venture into the compound.

Speaking to Israel’s Channel 2 on Tuesday, Raphael Morris, head of Returning to the Mount, accused the Israeli government of imposing “ruthless restrictions” on Jewish Israelis.

“We are not prepared [to let] the situation deteriorate.”



“We must act not only to end the slide, but moreover for the addition of rights for Jews on the mount, the first of which is prayer,” Morris said, as reported by the Times of Israel website.

The group’s Facebook is full of posts calling for Israel to destroy the Al-Aqsa Mosque and raise a Jewish temple in its place.

These fever-pitch calls come at a time when Palestinian protests against Israel’s ongoing occupation and harsh policies are growing in frequency in Palestinian communities in Israel and in the West Bank and Gaza.

Protesters have been met with force, with Israeli soldiers using live ammunition, rubber-coated steel bullets, tear gas and stun grenades.

Since October 1, Israeli forces or settlers have killed 66 Palestinians, including unarmed protesters, bystanders and alleged attackers.

More than 1,000 Palestinians, among them children, have been arrested this month, according to the Palestinian Prisoners Club.

During that same period, nine Israelis have been killed by Palestinians in stabbing or shooting attacks.

Also on Tuesday, Israeli Deputy Minister Tzipi Hotovely – a member of the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s ultra-nationalist Likud party – referred to the Al-Aqsa Mosque compound as “the centre of Israeli sovereignty, the capital of Israel”.

“It is my dream to see the Israeli flag flying” over Al-Aqsa, she told Knesset TV, the Israeli parliament’s television channel.

In response, Netanyahu’s office later that night put out a statement saying that “non-Muslims visit the Temple Mount [Al-Aqsa compound]” but are not permitted to pray there.

Biblical claims

Hotovely was criticised in May when she cited religious texts as justification for Israeli settlement expansion. Citing medieval Jewish scholar Rabbi Shlomo Ben Yitzhaki,she said that “the creator of the world” took the land from Palestinians “and gave it to us”.

More than 530,000 Israelis live in Jewish-only settlements – considered illegal by international law – across the West Bank, according to the Israeli rights group B’Tselem.

Last month, the Temple Mount and Eretz Yisrael Faithful Movement, a hardline Israeli organisation that advocates removing the Al-Aqsa Mosque, organised a march as tensions soared.

The group published a statement calling on Jews to protect the Temple Mount, which is “in the hands of Israel’s enemies”.

“We will stop the Islamisation of the Temple Mount and the construction of more mosques,” it read, adding that Israeli police forces will provide the marchers with protection.

According to Al-Shabaka: The Palestinian Policy Network, a research group, Israeli leaders intentionally attempt to portray the ongoing unrest as a religious conflict in order to justify using force against anti-occupation protests and to deflect criticism of harsh policies.

“Israel’s framing of the conflict along religious lines is an attempt to decontextualise the clashes that have been happening between Palestinians and Israeli settlers,” Nur Arafeh, a policy fellow at Al-Shabaka, told Al Jazeera.

Arafeh said that Palestinian “resistance to a settler-colonial and apartheid” are time and again “distortedly linked to religious fervour”.

“While Netanyahu claims that he has no intention to change the status quo, Israeli settlers have strong and deepening ties with Israeli authorities that have been providing them with financial, political, and legal assistance and coverage.”

Several senior officials of the Israeli government and high-ranking members of Netanyahu’s Likud party are committed supporters of Temple Mount movements and have attempted to advance their programme in the Knesset, according to a December 2014 report by the Jerusalem based group Ir Amim.

The report found that Netanyahu has “refrained from confronting them publicly or from commenting on the destructive impact of their actions”.

Between May 2013 and October 2014, the Knesset Interior Committee held 14 discussions about Jewish access to the mosque compound, as compared to four meetings in the decade prior.

Ir Amim describes these discussions “as a central stage for backing extreme right Temple movement activists” and “a platform for right-wing Knesset members to level criticism at authorities responsible for security” at the holy site.



Some 27 right-wing Jewish movements advocate for an expansion of Israel’s presence at the compound, according to the United Temple Mount Movement, an umbrella group that represents the organisations.

While many only publicly focus on increasing Jewish prayer at the site, they all maintain the messianic view that the mosque will be replaced with a Jewish temple, according to another Ir Amim report published in October 2014.

‘Intense incitement’

In recent months, however, security forces have imposed tighter entry restrictions to the Al-Aqsa area on Palestinians, often placing arbitrary age restrictions on male worshippers.

Earlier this month, Netanyahu banned all Knesset members from visiting the holy site, including Palestinian legislators in the Israeli parliament.

While Netanyahu has been mostly quiet about right-wing Jewish groups pushing for an Israeli takeover of the holy site, he has lashed out at Palestinian legislators who defy his order.

Most recently, Bassel Ghattas, a legislator in the Knesset and member of the Balad political party, defied the ban and visited the mosque to show solidarity with worshippers on Wednesday.



Emphasising that Ghattas is a Christian, Netanyahu accused him of attempting to “provoke” an escalation and “inflame the situation”.

Yousef Jabareen, a Knesset member from the Arab-majority Joint List electoral coalition, said that Netanyahu and his political allies “are the ones who have been inciting”.

“We have been witnessing intense incitement by Netanyahu and his allies against Palestinian Knesset members,” he told Al Jazeera.

“The idea is to delegitimise our role in Israeli politics,” he said. “I believe that this incitement serves Netanyahu to go ahead with his discriminatory policies” against Palestinians in Israel and the occupied territories.

Israeli forces storm hospital for 3rd time to seize Palestinian suspect’s records (VIDEO)

Israeli authorities have stormed a hospital in Jerusalem for the third constitutive day, deploying rubber bullets and smoke grenades, in order to gain access to the medical records of Palestinians allegedly wounded in clashes with police.

Israeli police officers raided the the Bagthamha Makassed Hospital in the Jerusalem neighborhood of al-Tur using rubber bullets, smoke grenades and sound bombs on Thursday. Authorities were trying to find a medical record belonging to a 15-year-old Palestinian boy, who was allegedly hit with a .22 caliber Ruger bullet during a recent clash with Israeli security forces, Haaretz reports.

Thursday’s raid happened as hospital staff participated in a pause of solidarity with the support of the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC). Scared of being injured in the raid, people ran for their lives away from the hospital. While in the hospital, according to reports, Israeli forces harassed and insulted the patients.

Hospital officials say the police have been raiding the medical facility for the third day running in order to find and arrest Palestinians suspected of involvement in clashes with the Israelis.

Israeli authorities say the hospital unlawfully failed to report those injured by gunfire.

No arrests were made during Thursday’s raid, according to hospital officials. However police said the files were found and the teenager in question will be indicted.

Dr. Ali Al-Husseini, head of the hospital, told Maan news agency that the raids took place because doctors refused to share patients’ records with the Israeli authorities in order to protect patients’ privacy.

“It is not our job to give any information about anyone [who] comes to hospital or to take any personal information. Our job is only to help them and provide them with medical treatment,” al-Husseini said.

Despite this, the Israelis continue to threaten and pressure the hospital staff to provide admissions and reasons for hospitalization.

The head of the hospital accused the Israeli authorities of “desecrating” the medical facility as he appealed for help to the international community.

“The hospital has become desecrated by Israeli troops,” he said. “Israeli violations against the Palestinian hospital are against the law and until today we cannot find anyone to protect the hospital, the patients, and the staff.”

The first raid on the hospital took place this Tuesday. On Wednesday the 250-bed hospital was raided for the second time, when Israeli security forces accused the medical staff of collaborating with rioters and harboring the injured from Israeli justice.

Israel razes Palestinian village in Negev for 90th time

Officials directed bulldozers to destroy the homes of Bedouin villagers in al-Araqib, who return each time to rebuild.

Palestinian women protest against home demolitions in the ‘unrecognised villages’ of Israel’s Negev region [Reuters]

Israeli authorities have demolished a Bedouin village in the Negev region in the country’s south for the 90th time since 2010.

Accompanied by heavily armed police officers, officials showed up in Araqib on Wednesday morning and bulldozers rolled through the remaining homes, according to local media.

Israel-Palestine: The conflict and the coverage – Listening Post (Full)

Araqib is one of more than 40 “unrecognised” villages scattered across the Negev region.

An estimated 80,000 Bedouin Palestinians who carry Israeli citizenship live in the communities, which are often denied state services, including water, electricity, rubbish pick-up and education facilities, according to the Association for Civil Rights in Israel.

The Adalah Legal Center for Arab Minority Rights estimates that 22 families made up of 110 people live in Araqib. The villagers return and rebuild after each demolition.

“Israel plans on putting a forest in the place of their homes,” Majd Kayyal, Adalah’s media coordinator, told Al Jazeera.

Israel claims the villagers’ homes were built without permits, while locals say they were placed on the land after being displaced from their original villages during Israel’s establishment in 1948.



“They continue storming the village to demolish it and evict its residents,” he said.

An Israeli police spokesman was not available for comment on the demolition.

A diverse community of Muslims, Christians, and Druze, an estimated 1.7 million Palestinians carry Israeli citizenship and live in communities across the country.

Adalah has documented more than 50 discriminatory laws that target Palestinian citizens of Israel by stifling their political expression and limiting their access to state resources, notably land.

‘Ongoing escalation’

Yousef Jabareen, a legislator in the Knesset, Israel’s parliament, and member of the Joint List, a political alliance of four Arab-dominated parties in Israel, said that the “demolition of al-Araqib is ongoing escalation against our community”.

“Instead of adopting policies of equal allocation of resources and responding to the special socioeconomic needs of the Arab community [in Israel], Israeli leaders – including [Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu – continue to increase these harsh, discriminatory policies,” he told Al Jazeera.

The demolition comes at a time of soaring unrest, with Israeli forces clashing with Palestinians as anti-occupation protests spread in Israel, the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip with increasing frequency.

Incidents between Palestinians and Israelis have surged since the start of the month, sparked by incursions by hardline Israeli groups into Al-Aqsa Mosque compound, the third holiest site in Islam.



Despite Netanyahu pledging to maintain the current status quo, Palestinians worry that the visits mark the first stage of an eventual plan to partition the compound into Muslim and Jewish sections.

Since October 1, Israeli forces have killed 63 Palestinians, including unarmed protesters, bystanders and suspected attackers. Nine Israelis have been killed by Palestinian attackers in stabbing or shooting incidents.

More than 100 Palestinian citizens of Israel, among them activists and minors, were arrested during a week-long span in early October, Adalah said.

After Knesset member Bassel Ghattas, a member of the Balad political party, visited Al-Aqsa Mosque compound on Wednesday, Netanyahu accused him of “provocation” and said that the visit to the holy site was “only to inflame the situation”.

Secret US Attack, Cited by Putin Part of Pentagon´s BioWarfare Plan in Syria

US Plan to Spread Cholera Across Syria and Turkey May be Failing

Kaiser_346By Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

Update:  America has launched a second attack on the Aleppo power plants (read below)

They say an animal is most dangerous when cornered

Last week two American F-16s attacked the city of Aleppo in Syria, a city of 2.5 million people, one of the oldest inhabited cities on earth.  Russia’s President Putin called the attack “strange” and questioned America’s motives.  In the aftermath of the attack, the reasoning behind the seemingly bizarre assault has become clear, America is trying to bring down the Assad government using germ warfare.

Syria’s natural water supply, the Euphrates River, carries cholera of course, but also dozens of waterborne illnesses totally resistant to antibiotics where even the best palliative care is unlikely to guarantee a favorable outcome.

Back in 2013, Aleppo was under a similar assault, Sarin gas, blamed on the Damascus government, a “red line” that nearly brought on an American air assault against Syria.  When it was discovered that the Sarin gas had been produced by an American research facility in Tbilisi, Georgia, later subject of a Russia Today documentary banned in the US,  and smuggled into Syria witnessed by a Press TV film crew headed by Serena Shim (murdered in Turkey), America stood down.

The current attack, coinciding with both the refugee crisis in Europe and the large scale military operations that are cleansing Aleppo Province of coalition backed “moderate terrorists,” is in all probability what brought the Pentagon to the point of taking out Aleppo’s water purification facilities.  America’s goal was to start a cholera epidemic in one of the largest cities in the Middle East, driving tens of thousands of refugees into the middle of a massive military operation against terror groups the Pentagon has been playing with for some time.

Thus far, however, the Pentagon plan has been a failure.  Were it more successful, up to 100,000 refugees may have fled into Hatay Province, Turkey, infecting up to a million more there in a region clogged with refugees.

You see, cholera is a “gift that keeps on giving,” a massively infectious disease.  A dozen cholera patients can overburden any clinic or even regional hospital.  A dozen cholera carriers can, within days and under the right conditions, war and refugees for instance, recreate conditions not seen since the Middle Ages.

Coinciding with the America attack has been a total blackout of all reports from the region, including Twitter and Facebook postings, a total cleansing of all reports of the American bombing with the exception of Veterans Today, TASS and Russia Today. Even the statements of President Putin, and he mentions the American attack on 3 occasions, are banned from all western press and cleansed from the internet.

The Pentagon plan is specifically biological warfare and not the first time it has been used in Syria.  The Free Syrian Army, with both Israeli and American special operations advisors with every unit, has targeted water supplies across Syria, particularly Damascus.

From EMedicine on biological warfare:

Cholera

Cholera is an acute and potentially severe gastrointestinal disease (stomach andintestines) caused by the bacteria Vibrio cholerae. This agent has been investigated in the past as a biological weapon. Cholera does not spread easily from human to human, so it appears that major drinking water supplies would have to be profusely contaminated for this agent to be effective as a biological weapon.

Cholera normally can infect water or food that becomes contaminated by human bowel waste. The organism can survive for up to 24 hours in sewage and as long as six weeks in certain types of relatively impure water containing organic matter. It can withstand freezing for three to four days, but it is killed readily by dry heat, steam, boiling, short-term exposure to ordinary disinfectants, and chlorination of water.

The toxin causes a person’s intestines to create massive amounts of fluid that then produces thin, grayish brown diarrhea.

We know of the Pentagon plan to destroy Aleppo’s chlorination facility.  The Euphrates River with its endless supply of human waste would do the rest.

Anyone who doesn’t believe the Pentagon and CIA are capable of this is a fool.

Update:  Warplanes of US-led alliance attack power plant in Aleppo

A military source told SANA that warplanes of the Washington alliance violated Syrian airspace and attacked civilian infrastructure in Mare’a, Tal Sha’er, and al-Bab in Aleppo countryside on Sunday.

The source added that the warplanes attacked the biggest electric power plant that feeds Aleppo city, which resulted in cutting off power from most neighborhoods in Aleppo city.

This transgression comes only 8 days after two F-16 warplanes belonging to the alliance targeted two power plants in al-Radwaniye area east of Aleppo city, cutting off power from the area.

Washington Accuses Putin. Russian Airstrikes are Targeting “Our Guys” in Syria: CIA Operatives, Military Advisers, Mercenaries, Special Forces, … Instead of ISIS Terrorists

Russian Airstrikes are Targeting “Our Guys”: 

The Western media quoting US officials has reported that the Russian Air Force is not really targeting ISIS terrorists.

They are targeting CIA sponsored operatives inside Syria. 

According to a US official in an interview with Fox News:

‘Putin is deliberately targeting our forces. Our guys are fighting for their lives.’

Moscow is “deliberately targeting” U.S.-backed forces in Syria as part of a military campaign that has killed up to 150 CIA-trained rebels, a U.S. official told Fox News

The claims state that Russia’s apparent mission to destroy ISIS is really a facade, and that their real mission is to kill American assets. (October 14, 2015).

The “Our Guys” category (“fighting for their lives”) not only includes bona fide “moderate terrorists” trained by the Western military alliance, it also includes countless Western military advisers, intelligence agents and mercenaries (often recruited by private security companies) operating on the ground inside Syria since March 2011.

In a bitter twist, by making these accusations directed against Moscow, the Obama Administration candidly acknowledges what has been known from the outset: the presence of Western forces inside Syria in support of Al Qaeda affiliated terrorists. Lest we forget, this constitutes an undeclared act of war against a sovereign country in violation of international  law (Nuremberg).

Amply documented, from the outset of the Syrian insurgency, Western special forces and covert intelligence agents including British SAS, French Parachutistes, CIA, MI6  and Mossad have integrated rebel ranks. Their activities are not limited to training. They are routinely involved in overseeing the conduct of terrorist operations on the ground together with Turkish and Qatari special forces, as well thousands of mercenaries recruited from Muslim countries:

“As the unrest and killings escalate in the troubled Arab state, agents from MI6 and the CIA are already in Syria [2012 report] assessing the situation, a security official has revealed. Special forces are also talking to Syrian dissident soldiers. They want to know about weapons and communications kit rebel forces will need if the Government decides to help.  (Syria will be bloodiest yet, Daily Star, January 2012). (emphasis added)

From the outset of the insurgency, Al Qaeda affiliated rebel forces including ISIS and Al Nusrah are “infiltrated” by Western military and intelligence  operatives.

“MI6 and the CIA are in Syria to infiltrate and get at the truth,” said the well-placed source. “We have SAS and SBS not far away who want to know what is happeningand are finding out what kit dissident soldiers need.” ” (Syria will be bloodiest yet, Daily Star, January 2012). (emphasis added)

.

.

(The SBS operatives referred to above are the British Royal Navy’s Special Boat Service (SBS), often recruited from the Royal Marine Commandos)

These foreign forces are also involved in intelligence  and logistics as well as terror command operations directed against the government of Bashar Al Assad. They are in permanent communication and liaison  through their satellite phones with US, NATO, Turkey and Israel military and intelligence.

.

.

Without Western support, the terrorists would not have been able to gain control over entire regions of the country. In this regard, Vladimir Putin intimates that this would not be possible without foreign support:

“The so-called Islamic State [ISIS] has taken control of a huge territory. How was that possible? Think about it: if Damascus or Baghdad are seized by the terrorist groups, they will be almost the official authorities, and will have a launchpad for global expansion. Is anyone thinking about this or not?” (Vladimir Putin’s speech to the Valdai Conference, October 2015)

Covert support to the terrorists has been provided from the outset of the war in March 2011. The CIA is supporting terrorists as a means to triggering “regime change” in Syria, implying the conduct of covert intelligence operations within Syrian territory:

“The U.S. spy agency has been arming and training rebels in Syria since 2013 to fight the Assad regime  (WSJ, September 30, 2015 emphasis added)

According to the Daily Mail:

And after the CIA spent more than two years secretly working to arm, train and fund thousands of select so-called moderate Syrian rebels to oppose Assad, U.S. officials have watched those groups become the target of Russian missiles. (emphasis added)

Russia’s Smart Bombs do not Distinguish between the Terrorists and their Western Advisers
Russian air strikes initiated in September are directed against terrorist units integrated by Western operatives and advisers.
Russia’s “smart bombs”, however, are not in a position to distinguish between the rank and file “jihadist” terrorists and the Western special forces and mercenaries which have integrated (“infiltrated”) rebel forces since March 2011.
CIA Operatives together with British SAS and French Special Forces on the Ground in Syria

Reports confirm that US, British and allied Special Forces have been on the ground since the outset of the war in 2011. The underlying pattern is similar to that of Libya where Western special forces had integrated terrorist ranks prior to the launching of NATO’s military intervention.

The website of Britain’s SAS candidly acknowledges that  …[T]here has been growing chatter indicating that British Special Forces are in some way assisting forces aligned against the Syrian regime”:

Reports from late November last year state that British Special forces have met up with members of the Free Syrian Army (FSA), the armed wing of the Syrian National Council. The apparent goal of this initial contact was to establish the rebel forces’ strength and to pave the way for any future training operations.

More recent reports have stated that British and French Special Forces have been actively training members of the FSA, from a base in Turkey. Some reports indicate that training is also taking place in locations in Libya and Northern Lebanon. British MI6 operatives and UKSF (SAS/SBS) personnel have reportedly been training the rebels in urban warfare as well as supplying them with arms and equipment. US CIA operatives and special forces are believed to be providing communications assistance to the rebels.” http://www.eliteukforces.info/uk-military-news/0501012-british-special-forces-syria.php (emphasis added)

In August 2015, Britain’s Sunday Express Tabloid headlined “SAS dress as ISIS fighters in undercover war on jihadis,” (see screen shot below)

More than 120 members belonging to the elite regiment are currently in the war-torn country on operation Shader, tasked with destroying IS equipment and munitions which insurgents constantly move to avoid Coalition air strikes.

It comes just days after David Cameron gave “carte blanche” for the SAS and SBS to target IS leaders as part of the Government’s “broad spectrum” response to the murder of 30 British tourists by ISIS gunman Seifeddine Rezgui in the Tunisian beach resort of Sousse.

Though the Prime Minister is being kept informed, senior military sources last night told the Sunday Express that he would not be required to “green light” every mission.

The article portrays SAS forces disguised as ISIS terrorists acting as part of a covert British Counter-Terrorism operation. (For further details see Stephen Lendman, British SAS Special Forces Dressed up as ISIS Terrorists, Global Research, August 4, 2015)

The truth of the matter is that these SAS commandos are there to integrate rebel ranks on the ground, overseeing carefully planned terror operations against Syria, in permanent liaison with US-NATO et al.

French Parachutistes on the Ground Advising the Terrorists

The French have been actively involved since the outset of the insurgency on the ground in liaison with their US, British and Israeli counterparts. In February 2012, 13 French military officers were arrested in Homs pointing to the presence of foreign troops on Syrian soil inside rebel ranks. The report suggested that the arrested officers could have been part of “a larger contingent” of  French Parachutistes (special forces).“ (The Daily Star  March 5, 2012)

The French government initially denied the report, insisting that “not a single French soldier is on Syrian soil.” Yet sources confirmed that negotiations between Paris and Damascus were held, in all probability regarding the repatriation of the French military officers:

“A French Foreign Ministry spokesman said: “We deny the idea that there are French troops on the ground in Syria. A Defense Ministry spokesman added: “We have no information on this. We neither confirm nor deny it.” (Report: 13 French officers captured in Syria – Israel News, Ynetnews, emphasis added)

Freemasons worship Lucifer

The Satanic Freemasonry Lodge
The Symbols say it all

“He shall honour the God of forces: a god whom his fathers knew not”… he shall speak great words against the most High, and shall wear out the saints of the most High, and think to change times and laws Dan:7:25;11:38

The Freemasonry Society seems on the outside to be a respectable “Men’s Club” and a very charitable Organization. However, if we were to closely inspect their teachings, with an open mind and a prayerful attitude, we would soon find that this Group is nothing like it appears to be to the public eye! Its true goals and objectives are far from being innocent!moralsdogma.jpg - 6.49 K      Masonry is in reality, a Religion, and is the worship of Lucifer or of Satan himself! We can know this simply by examining their use of symbols. But of course, the Leaders of this seemingly benevolent Organization find it prudent to carefully hide the fact that they are satanic. Let us begin by reading what the great Masonic Leader Albert Pike had to say about Masonry in his famous book, Morals and Dogma:

“Lucifer, the Light-bearer! Strange and mysterious name to give to the Spirit of Darkness! Lucifer, the Son of the Morning! Is it he who bears the Light, and with its splendors intolerable, blinds feeble, sensual, or selfish souls? Doubt it not!” Albert Pike, Morals and Dogma of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry, p. 321, 19th Degree of Grand Pontiff.

Albert Pike gives solid evidence of Freemason’s worship of Satan on the cover of Morals and Dogma. Below the seal of “God”, Pike writes a Latin phrase, which proves to be a typical satanic phrase. One look at this phrase would alert any Satanist that the contents of this book are Satanic! What is this phrase? “DEUS MEUMQUE JUS” The literal meaning is “God and My Right”

A former Satanist, Doc Marquis says this statement is a very characteristic one within Satanism. It has two meanings. First, this phrase means that the Freemason can depend upon their God, Lucifer, to determine their Right and Justice. Secondly, since the God of Freemasonry is Lucifer, Masons are saying that they are “using occult methods”, through Lucifer, to achieve their Rights and Justice.

pike.jpg - 12.34 K      Marquis says that this phrase is very powerful and very dangerous within Satanism. If a Satanist sees this phrase in Latin on Pike’s book, he knows the material within is Satanism!

The Mason seeks power even the power to control the forces of Nature. This is typical of the Luciferian Worshipper. Way back in the Garden of Eden, Satan, posing as the beautiful Serpent, convinced Eve that she needed the same knowledge that God had finally convincing her to eat from the forbidden Tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Ever since sin came into the world, those who practice it seek selfish power to control others and the world around them. This seeking of power is typical of those who get involved in Witchcraft, also known as “THE CRAFT.” Let’s see what Manly P. Hall, Master Mason, has to say about THE CRAFT and the powers of Lucifer:

“The day has come when Fellow Craftsman (Freemason) must know and apply their knowledge. The lost key to their grade is the mastery of emotion,which places the energy of the universe at their disposal. Man can only expect to be entrusted with great power by proving his ability to use it constructively and selflessly. When the Mason learns that the key to the warrior on the block is the proper application of the dynamo of living power, he has learned the mystery of his CRAFT. The seething energies of LUCIFER are in his hands, and before he may step onward and upward, he must prove his ability to properly apply energy. He must follow in the footsteps of his forefather, Tubal-Cain, who with the mighty strength of the war god hammered his sword into a plowshare.” Manly P. Hall, 33rd Degree Mason, K.T., The Lost Keys of Freemasonry or The Secret of Hiram Abiff

MASONIC SYMBOLSTHE BAPHOMET

For additional confirmation that the Masons really do worship the Devil, we need look no further than their use of symbols. We will investigate just a few of them now.

bapho.jpg - 25.78 K      The Freemasons adore the figure of the Baphomet, a half man and half goat creature, which in reality represents the “God of forces” or the Devil. Albert Pike, revered Mason said this about the Baphomet:

“The Gnostics held that it [universal agent] composed the igneous [pertaining to fire] body of the Holy Spirit, and it was adored in the secret rites of the Sabbat or the Temple under the hieroglyphic figure of Baphomet or the hermaphroditic goat of Mendes .” Pike, op. cit., p. 734,teaching of the 28th Degree

      The dualistic nature of life and the male female aspects of creation are believed to be contained within the drawing of Occultist Eliphas Levi’s Baphomet (above). Levi was one of the foremost Satanists and Freemasons. The image of the Baphomet combines both male and female androgynous qualities; one arm masculine, one feminine; the breasts of a woman with a phallic object on its lap. The illustration also shows one arm points toward a white crescent moon the other towards a dark crescent moon, representing the duality of good and evil. Here is what Eliphas Levi said about the Baphomet in his book, Haute Magie:

“The goat on the frontispiece carries the sign of the pentagram on the forehead, with one point at the top, a symbol of light, his two hands forming the sign of hermetism, the one pointing up to the white moon of Chesed, the other pointing down to the black one of Geburah. This sign expresses the perfect harmony of mercy with justice. His one arm is female, the other male like the ones of the androgyn of Khunrath, the attributes of which we had to unite with those of our goat because he is one and the same symbol. The flame of intelligence shining between his horns is the magic light of the universal balance, the image of the soul elevated above matter, as the flame, whilst being tied to matter, shines above it. The ugly beast’s head expresses the horror of the sinner, whose materially acting, solely responsible part has to bear the punishment exclusively; because the soul is insensitive according to its nature and can only suffer when it materializes. The rod standing instead of genitals symbolizes eternal life; the body covered with scales the water, the semi- circle above it the atmosphere, the feathers following above the volatile. Humanity is represented by the two breasts and the androgyn arms of this sphinx of the occult sciences.”

The Baphomet contains several representations of the Occult pantheistic God of Forces (Pan), or the positive and negative aspects of Nature. Basically, this teaching revolves around the idea that good and evil are the same or to be blended together. (Please read my articles in this Web Site about the New Age Movement, for additional insight)… and just who is Pan? Why, he is none other than the Devil himself!

If you look closely, you will see Baphomet making the sign of the Devil’s Trinity with his right hand, representing the forces of darkness and light joining together into one.“Baphomet is also known as the Sabbatic goat, in whose form Satan is to be worshipped at the Witches’ Sabbath”. Frank Gaynor, Dictionary of Mysticism pg. 24
THE PENTAGRAM AND THE PHOENIX

baphtarot.jpg - 24.53 K      The Goat of Mendes or Baphomet which Freemasons make use of in their symbols is seen here, with the Pentagram on it’s head. As you can clearly see, the Tarot Card with the goat and Pentagram is called The Devil. The Pentagram is a frequently utilized symbol in both the Masonry and Satanism, and it has evil significance. The women’s Division of the Masonry called The Eastern Star also makes prominent use of the Pentagram symbol

Once again, let’s go to Occultic Writer and 33rd Degree Freemason, Manly Hall, for an explanation of this symbol. In his book, The Phoenix: An Illustrated Review of Occultism and Philosophy pg. 176,177 we read the following:

“Among the ancients a fabulous bird called the Phoenix is described by early writers … in size and shape it resembles the eagle, but with certain differences. The body of the Phoenix is one covered with glossy purple feathers, and the plumes in its tail are alternately blue and red. The head of the bird is light in color, and about its neck is a circlet of golden plumage. At the back of its back the Phoenix has a crest of feathers of brilliant color … The Phoenix, it is said, lives for 500 years, and at its death its body opens and the new born Phoenix emerges. Because of this symbolism, the Phoenix is generally regarded as representing immortality and resurrection … The Phoenix is one sign of the secret orders of the ancient world and of the initiate of those orders, for it was common to refer to one who had been accepted into the temples as a man twice-born, or reborn. Wisdom confers a new life, and those who become wise are born again.”

To “become wise” means to gain the new Occultic Light, and to thus be “born again” into the New Age Luciferic Worldview.

doubleeagle.gif - 2.33 K

Thus we see now that these two birds are not eagles, as they seem to be, but rather the Phoenix Bird of Ancient Egyptian Mythology. When Manly Hall talks about being born again, it isn’t in the usual Christian sense at all. Let’s read what the emergence of the Phoenix Bird really means, in relation to the idea of being “born again”, but rather a rising again from one’s own ashes (note the Phoenix bird with the smoldering fire under it).

phoenixb.gif - 37.18 K      In Barbara Walker’s book, “Now is the Dawning” she tells us that the Egyptians believed that the Phoenix represented a god who “rose to heaven, in the form of a star, like Lucifer, after his fire- immolation of death and rebirth.”

Those involved in the New Age Movement, Occultism, and Freemasonry, believe that Lucifer was unjustly thrown out of heaven by God, and will “rise again” to be Ruler of the Universe in God’s place. He will in fact, “become God,” according to them. Likewise, followers of Lucifer here on Earth, supposedly discover the “secret knowledge” or “Gnosis” of Lucifer and also after initiation become “reborn to become gods! “(Lucifer DID promise Eve in the Garden that she would become as a god).

New Agers with the Sunrise also portray this same idea. That is why the NEW AGE is also referred to as THE NEW DAWN Let me tell you a little Occult history. The Bible talks about Nimrod who had to do with the building of the Tower of Babel in Babylon which of course is the birthplace of Occultism. His evil followers believed that when Nimrod died, he was immortal and went to live up in the Sun.

And so whenever the Sun would rise in the morning, the Babylonians believed it to be Nimrod “rising again” he supposedly went down at night to fight off the evil creatures in the ocean when the Sun set but he came up again every morning, victorious! This of course symbolizes Lucifer “dying” when he got thrown out of heaven and then “rising again” when he will once again rule the World! And this New Age period is supposed to be a time when Occultism and Lucifer’s followers will reign supreme upon the face of the Earth! Thus, the Occult Phoenix bird is shown with a smoldering fire underneath and it “rises from its ashes” in triumph.

The rising of the phoenix bird also symbolizes the New Age idea that the “Divine Cosmic Plan” that the highly evolved Great Masters have for our Earth Civilization is going to come into effect soon. Earth will “rise from its ashes” and begin anew, its inhabitants having the new Cosmic Consciousness. It is like a “rebirth” of the Ancient Occult Mystery Religions in our World.

The following quotation is from an Occult site, regarding the Phoenix bird:

“Ovid tells the story of the Phoenix follows: “Most beings spring from other individuals; but there is a certain kind which reproduces itself. The Assyrians call it the Phoenix. It does not live on fruit or flowers, but on frankincense and odoriferous gums. When it has lived five hundred years, it builds itself a nest in the branches of an oak, or on the top of a palm tree. In this it collects cinnamon, and spikenard, and myrrh, and of these ‘materials builds a pile on which it deposits itself, and dying, breathes out its last breath amidst odours. From the body of the parent bird, a young Phoenix issues forth, destined to live as long a life as its predecessor. When this has grown up and gained sufficient strength, it lifts its nest from the tree (its own cradle and its parent’s sepulchre), and carries it to the city of Heliopolis in Egypt, and deposits it in the temple of the Sun.”

Obviously, we can see that the Phoenix bird has to do with Ancient Egyptian Sun Worship! Freemasonry is in reality built upon the Ancient Mystery Religions of Egypt and Babylon!

Freemasonry and Lucifer

Masonic Grand Lodges promote the
teaching that Lucifer is the Holy Spirit. 

Downloadable SOURCE DOCUMENTS proving
that claim are provided.  See footnotes.

Do Freemasons worship Lucifer?

Over the years, some people have claimed that Freemasons worship Lucifer, or Satan.  The truth of the matter is that the name Lucifer is not found in the rituals of the Blue Lodge, or the York Rite.  We do not believe that Lucifer is mentioned by name in the Scottish Rite degrees, either.  However, one of the “Sacred Words” in the17th Degree of the Scottish Rite is “Abaddon,” the angel of  the bottomless pit, mentioned in Revelation 9:11.

Worship does occur in Masonic Lodges.  One of the primary purposes of Freemasonry is worship.  That fact is clearly stated in the Declaration of Principles which is contained on pages 37-39 of the Indiana Monitor and Freemason’s Guide.  (To examine the source materials, see footnotes.)  Masons worship a god which they call the Great Architect of the Universe.  The symbol they have chosen to represent their god is the All Seeing Eye, which the Egyptians used to represent their pagan god, Osiris.   Many Masons are well aware of the pagan connection.  It is clearly stated in a number of Masonic Monitors.  An example is found on page 116 of the Kentucky Monitor. 

Since Freemasonry teaches a false plan of salvation, Masons are not following in the teachings of Jesus Christ.  2 John 1:9 allows us to know that since they are not following in the teachings of Jesus, they do not have God.  Freemasonry is classic paganism.  1 Corinthians 10:20-21 allows us to know that the sacrifices of pagans are offered to demons, rather than God.   Although we can say with certainty that the god of Freemasonry is a demon, we do not know specifically which demon Masons worship in lodge.  We simply know that they refer to their demon as the Great Architect of the Universe, or GAOTU.  All demons are under the leadership of Satan.  Therefore, Freemasons cannot avoid worshiping Satan by proxy.  Very few of them realize the facts in this aspect of Masonic worship.  A great many Masons, even some who do not claim to be Christians, would leave the lodge immediately if the names of Satan, or Lucifer, were substituted for the GAOTU in Masonic prayers.  Satan would not allow that to occur, because the more effective lie is the one which is closer to the truth, without being true.   The reason that a name such as the GAOTU is chosen for the object of worship is discussed in The Men’s Club, an essay on the Ex-Masons for Jesus website.

red_line.gif (1167 bytes)

Do Satanists worship Lucifer?

Many people believe that Satanists worship Lucifer, however Satanists tell us that such is not always the case.  Satanist Anton LaVEY wroteThe Satanic Bible and The Satanic Rituals.  On the front cover flap ofThe Satanic Rituals, LaVEY wrote:

Satanism is a vital philosophy which asks you to take your fate in your own hands–break the barriers that confine you–sweep aside all that is smothering you–realize your full innate power.   The most important commandment of Satanism is: Satanism demands study – not worship.

Satan does not need to receive worship to achieve his goals.  All he has to do is to keep a man from following Jesus.  Satan knows that anyone who does not follow in the teachings of Jesus does not have God. (2 John 9)

Freemasonry demands study also, if one is to become a Master Mason in fact, as well as in name.     The Committee on Masonic Education of the Grand Lodge of Iowa has written a small booklet which has been adapted for use by a number of Grand Lodges, including Indiana.  The booklet was produced to encourage the new Mason to study and learn more about Freemasonry, so that he will do his part to fulfill its mission.  The text reads as follows:

It is safe to say that among the countless thousands who have in the past been raised to the Sublime Degree of Master Mason, no one of them realized at the time the full implications of the ceremony. This clearly would be impossible. Yet it is vitally important that the deeper meanings of this degree be understood if one is to become a Master Mason in fact as well as in name.

Your enjoyment of Freemasonry, its value to you in your future life, your contribution to the fulfillment of its great mission, will be in direct proportion to your understanding of its secrets, which, if you recall the degree through which you have just passed, you do not yet have and which can only be gained by your own endeavors and the assistance of your brethren. Your own endeavors will depend entirely on your devotion to Freemasonry’s great mission of bringing to mankind a full comprehension of the Brotherhood of all men under the Fatherhood of one everliving God.

Much has been written of Freemasonry. Probably your own Lodge possesses a library of books telling of the history of Freemasonry and treating of its philosophy, symbolism, and jurisprudence. These books are at your disposal at all times and there are many others that you may purchase for study in your own home.

There are also many magazines on the subject. Your own Grand Lodge publishes a monthly magazine, The Indiana Freemason.   Recognized as one of the very best Masonic publications now available, The Indiana Freemason will be sent to you for only a few cents per issue. Thus you can learn more and more about Masonry if you will–but you yourself must furnish the will.

This booklet is only an introduction to the great field of Masonic learning an invitation to you to enter that field for your own pleasure and profit. We hope it will provide a starting point from which you will go on and on in a search for Masonic light. Your efforts will be richly rewarded.

Since Grand Lodges stress the importance of a Masonic education, and they recommend reading Masonic publications as the most effective means, we will take a look at Masonic literature and expose some of “the deeper things of the craft.”   Beginning with Grand Lodge documents, we will establish the connections between Freemasonry and Lucifer.  The Mason who reads Masonic literature could uncover the connections as easily as we have.

Please Note:

We do not recommend discussing the connections between Satanism and Freemasonry with a Mason, in an attempt to lead him from the lodge.  You will not be given a good hearing.  The conversation will likely end before you have documented the connections.   Most Masons are not aware of the connection and will be offended by your approach.   We present this material here, that you might know that this is a spiritual battle.  Paul wrote:

Put on the full armor of God so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms. (Ephesians 6:11-12)

Having said that, we know that Masons will find this page and be offended by it.   We fully believe that it is of little significance that we offend them with the truth.  What is of major significance is that they continue to offend God by practicing Freemasonry.  Most Masons who read the information presented here will not admit that it is true.  Some will send us Email telling us that we don’t know what we are talking about.  If that were true, how could we provide the source documents for the quotes which follow to verify our claims?

We make the following offer to Masons:  If any of you can find any significant error in the material which follows, we will remove the entire web site from the internet.   In order to “claim the prize,” you must PROVE a significant error.  Simply stating that we are wrong, when we have provided the evidence, (the source documents are  downloadable)  will only make you look foolish.  After you have considered the evidence, and you can’t prove it wrong, we suggest you ask yourself a few questions:

  • When I stand before Jesus Christ on judgment day, will He believe that I was not aware of the connections between Freemasonry and Satanism?”
    • Can a Christian knowingly remain a member of an organization which lifts up Lucifer, without denying Jesus Christ?  What will Jesus say?  Who else’s opinion is going to matter? 

You might ponder Matthew 7:21-23,  Matthew 10:32-33, 1 Corinthians 10:20-22,   2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1, 1 John 1:5-2:6, 1 John 4:4-6 and 2 John 9.  It is your soul which is on the line.

Establishing the connection from the Grand Lodges to Lucifer

Grand Lodges are the authorities of Freemasonry.  Grand Lodges recommend that Masons read Masonic literature that they might realize all that Freemasonry holds for them.  While encouraging the membership to study, Masonic leadership knows that the majority will not.  The man who does begin to study Masonic literature might begin by reading his Masonic Monitor.  A statement contained in the Indiana Monitor and Freemason’s Guide recommends a Masonic book known as The Builders, with the words:

WHEN IS A MAN A MASON? The following was written by Brother Dr. Joseph Fort Newton, as the closing paragraph of his widely read book “The Builders.” It bids fair to become a Masonic classic. . . . (Indiana Monitor and Freemason’s Guide, page 172)

The Builders is an especially good book with which to start a study of Freemasonry.  Henry Wilson Coil stated that The Builders was written at the express request of the Grand Lodge of Iowa.  Coil states that the book is in widespread use among Masons. He wrote:

Dr. Newton was an active Freemason and lectured widely to lodges in Iowa, delivering especially a lecture called The Men’s House. At the request of the Grand Lodge of Iowa, he wrote The Builders, a copy of which was presented to every candidate raised in that State. It has also become one of the most widely read Masonic books of modern times. It has been translated into several foreign languages and, after the first edition in 1914, it appeared in editions as follows: 1915, 1916, 1920, 1921, 1922, 1924, and 1926. A revised edition was published in 1930, 1945, and 1946, and a revised and enlarged edition was issued in 1951 (315 pages), . . .

(Coil’s Masonic Encyclopedia, page 445)

The book is currently available from Masonic sources.  The publisher described the book in a recent catalog as “The outstanding classic in Masonic literature of all times.  Many Grand Lodges present a copy to each newly raised Mason.”

On page 57 of the builders, in the chapter entitled The Secret Doctrine, and continuing through page 59, is a glowing tribute to Arthur Edward Waite.  It contains the following:

Perhaps the greatest student in this field of esoteric teaching and method, certainly the greatest now living is Arthur Edward Waite, to whom it is a pleasure to pay tribute.

(The Builders, page 57)

Speaking of Waite’s books, Newton wrote:

And the result is a series of volumes noble in form, united in aim, unique in wealth of revealing beauty, and of unequalled worth. Beginning as far back as 1886, Waite issued his study of the Mysteries of Magic, a digest of the writings of Eliphas Levi, to whom Albert Pike was more indebted than he let us know.

(The Builders, page 59)

The Mysteries of Magic contains the following on page 428:

What is more absurd and more impious than to attribute the name of Lucifer to the devil, that is, to personified evil,  The intellectual Lucifer is the spirit of intelligence and love; it is the Paraclete, it is the Holy Spirit, while the physical Lucifer is the great agent of universal magnetism.

To personify evil and exalt it into an intelligence which is the rival of God, into a being which can understand but love no more-this is a monstrous fiction. To believe that God permits this evil intelligence to deceive and destroy his feeble creatures is to make God more wicked than the devil. By depriving the devil of the possibility of love and repentance, God forces him to do evil. Moreover a spirit of error and falsehood can only be a folly which thinks, nor does it deserve indeed the name of spirit. The devil is God’s antithesis, and if we define God as He who is we must define His opposite as he who is not.

(The Mysteries of Magic, page 428)

Masonic literature, such as this work of Eliphas Levi and Arthur Edward Waite, often does not contain what Christians would consider a conventional understanding of Lucifer, or the devil.   This work declares Lucifer to be God, if we view the statements from the perspective of someone who believes in the Trinity.  Levi and Waite have blasphemed the Holy Spirit. The Reverend Dr. Joseph Fort Newton has commended them for it.   Notice that they claim also that the devil does not exist.  Masonic literature does not embrace a conventional understanding of Jesus, God, the Holy Spirit, or Satan.

We have linked the Grand Lodges of Iowa and Indiana to a book which clearly states that Lucifer is the Holy Spirit.

Notice the path here.  It does not involve the “higher degrees” of Freemasonry.

  • The path begins with the Grand Lodges, which promote The Builders.
  • The Builders points to The Mysteries of Magic, which states that Lucifer is God.

The path from the Grand Lodges to Luciferianism and/or Satanism is quite short.

Many Freemasons would dispute the fact that Freemasonry is Satanic, claiming that Lucifer is not Satan, or the devil.  They often point out that the Roman name, Lucifer, appears in the KJV translation of Isaiah 14:12.  The original text is Hebrew and does not contain the Roman name, Lucifer.  That is true.   We have heard this defense from so many Freemasons that it seems obvious that the argument is being taught within the Masonic system, as a defense of Masonic literature which lifts up Lucifer.  Some Masons we have debated have considered Lucifer to be one of the “good guys.”   Obviously, Levi, Waite and Pike thought so.    Pike wrote on page 321 of Morals and Dogma that, “Lucifer is the Light Bearer.”  Freemasonry is said to be a search after light.

Grand Lodges cannot directly tell Freemasons that Lucifer is God without scaring a lot of them off before they are sufficiently ensnared.   Grand Lodges obviously want their members to find this material, yet they also want to be able to claim, “We have never taught any such thing.”  When the documentation is on the table, such denials are seen to be just another Masonic lie.

Masons should ask themselves why they would remain a member of an organization which promotes literature which declares Lucifer to be God?

What impact does this have on the church?

The Bible states:

Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:  For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. (2 John 9-11)

By allowing Masons to be members of the congregation, the other members have a share in the evil work of Freemasonry.  Satan is served and he has a legitimate charge to bring against the church. Freemasonry is a malignant growth which Jesus does not want in His church.  The seven letters to the churches in the book of Revelation reveal that God will hold the church responsible not only for what it does, but also for what it tolerates.  Did you ever wonder why you are not seeing revival?

The Reverend Dr. Joseph Fort Newton, the man whose book pointed toThe Mysteries of Magic, was both a Mason and the pastor of a church. The Mysteries of Magic declares that Lucifer is God.  Newton declared the words in the works of Arthur Edward Waite to be “noble in form, united in aim, unique in wealth of revealing beauty, and of unequalled worth.”   Newton knew enough about Masonic literature to know that Albert Pike had borrowed from the writings of Eliphas Levi when he wrote Morals and Dogma.  That fact demonstrates that Newton knew the literature well.  One of Waite’s books contains four pages of instructions to conjure Lucifer.  We will not be placing that on the site,  as we would not want to enable anyone to try it.  With Masons, you never know how far into the pit they are leaning.  Who can tell which member of your congregation they will ensnare next?  Who is to stop them from going after your brother, your son, or your grandson?  Fortunately, it is much easier to keep a man out of the lodge by talking to him before he joins than it is to get him out once they have him ensnared.  If men know the truth about Freemasonry, they usually won’t join the lodge.

The Reverend Dr. Newton obviously knew that Freemasonry was incompatible with Christianity, yet we sincerely doubt that he would have admitted that he was not a genuine Christian.  If he were really a Christian, why would he have praised the works of Levi and Waite?  You should not expect any Mason who is standing in the pulpit to admit that he is a phony.  But if he won’t repent and renounce Freemasonry when confronted with the facts, can he be the genuine article?

Is your pastor a Mason?  If so, part of his “ministry” is to maintain that a man can be both a Christian and a Mason.  Are you contributing to his salary, or otherwise funding his “ministry?”  That is the most effective way to say Godspeed to him.  Don’t share in his evil deeds.  Feed the poor instead.

Rituals of Freemasonry
Freemasonry Proven To Worship Lucifer

Part 3 of 5

Once you understand what is going on in the world you can then recognize evidences of Satanism in so many, many places.

THE PENTAGRAM

It was proven from Masonic books that Masons worship both Lucifer and Satan. They serve both the “good” Lucifer and the “evil” Satan. They believe that both good and evil exist in equal measure in the world.

They also believe good cannot exist without an equally powerful evil.

This belief is the reason we see both type of 5-pointed stars within Masonry; the star with the upright single point is a symbol of the “good” Lucifer, while the star with the two points upward is a symbol of the “evil” Satan. It also takes 33 degrees of rotation of a pentagram (one point up) to achieve a Satanic pentagram (two points up). Coincidence?

I don’t think so.

The women’s division of Freemasonry, Eastern Star (above right) is based upon the “evil Satan” Star, the Goats Head of Mendes. This is one of the Infernal Names of Satan within Satanism.

In looking at the Eastern Star Goatshead (above right), the star itself is a Goatshead, and the star in the middle is a plain Goatshead, which is within an inverted pentacle. In one symbol there are three instances of inverted pentagrams.

So, just how important is the Pentagram to the Satanist? Listen to the Witch of Salem, Massachusetts, Laura Cabot, on this question. In her book, Power of the Witch: The Earth, the Moon, and the Magical Path to Enlightenment, Cabot says,

“It really isn’t that difficult to distinguish the Craft from Satanism. Witches wear the pentacle with the point up. Satanists reverse it with the point down …”

Once we examine the two symbols above, both Masonic, we can only conclude that Freemasonry admittedly serves both the “good Lucifer” and the “evil Satan!”

Cabot has more to say on page 93, about the significance of the Pentagram to witchcraft.

“It [Pentagram] consists of a five-pointed star inside a circle. It is the key symbol of the Craft. It is the witch’s Mandala ….”

The Pentagram, inside a circle or with no circle, is the key symbol of witchcraft. Both “good” and “evil” pentagrams are within Freemasonry in abundance.


THE TRIANGLE — CONTINUED FROM PREVIOUS ARTICLE


The Triangle wasn’t the first subject mentioned on this page because the Pentagram is far more important to their practice of Witchcraft.

The triangle is part and parcel of the Pentagram. The triangle plays a big part within the Hexagram as well.


FREEMASONRY TEACHES MAN IS BECOMING GOD

To the occultist, the triangle is very important. It is used constantly in every conceivable manner. It is used either with the point up or down.

When you see the point down, this represents the Deity and is called the Deity’s Triangle or the Water Triangle.

The Earthly Triangle or Pyramid Triangle is what it is called when one point is up. It “symbolizes the PERFECT OR DIVINE MAN.” This quote is not from some heinous Black-hooded Satanist, it comes from a 33rd Degree Masonic author named George Steinmetz [Freemasonry: Its Hidden Meaning , New York, Macoy Publishing and Masonic Supply Company, 1948, p. 63, repeated on p. 67]

Freemasonry joins all pagan groups in saying that man can become “divine” or “perfect.” In another book, George returns to this theme once again:

“Be still — and know — that I am God … That I AM GOD — the final recognition of the All in All, the unity of the Self with the Cosmos — the cognition of the DIVINITY OF THE SELF!”

[George H. Steinmetz, The Lost Keys of Freemasonry, Richmond, Virginia, Macoy Publishing and Masonic Supply Company, 1923, p. 92]

Freemasonry has been so sensitive about any of its secrets ever becoming public knowledge. Masons in every age knew that if the general public knew the Satanic core that existed in the heart of Freemasonry, the organization would either go into oblivion or would be arrested and put in jail. Now you know why Freemasonry insists that its Initiates pledge that, if they divulge any of Masonry’s secrets, he would agree to having his throat slit and be disemboweled.

Manly P. Hall, another 33rd Degree Mason, writes,

“Man is a God in the making …”

[The Lost Keys of Freemasonry, p. 92]

Masonic author, Joseph Fort Newton, clearly and boldly states,

“.. to the profoundest insight of the human soul — that God becomes man that man may become God.”

[The Religion of Freemasonry: An Interpretation, Macoy Publishing and Masonic Supply Company, 1969, p. 37]



MASONRY ACKNOWLEDGES THAT FREEMASONRY ORIGINATED IN THE PLACE WHERE SATAN DWELLS!


Albert Churchward, another Masonic author states that the triangle pointing upward us a symbol for Set, which is one of the Infernal Names for Satan. [Signs and Symbols of Primordial Man ,George Allen and Company, Ltd., 1913, p. 189, 309, and 471]. Then, Masonic author, J.S.M. Ward states,

“With the point upwards, the equilateral triangle stands for Shiva the Destroyer and signifies the flame which rises upwards from the funeral pyre toward Heaven. This symbol is familiar to us in several degrees, most notably the Thirtieth degree.”

[Freemasonry and the Ancient Gods, 1921; also reported by Masonic authors William Meyer, The Order of the Eastern Star, p. 20; Alain Danielou, The Gods of India]

Shiva is another name for Satan in the occult. The triangle with one point pointing up is a symbol for Satan. Most likely this is the reason why the pyramid is such an important symbol to the Mason. This is the symbol on the reverse of the one dollar bill. This symbol contains two triangles: the Pyramid itself and the All-Seeing Eye of Horus (Osiris).

Occultists know that both Horus and Osiris are alternate names for Satan. There is one more proof from Masonic authors, that Satan is the one they worship.

Masonic authors tell us that they worship Lucifer in yet another way. Lynn Perkins (a Masonic Author), states that

“Shamballa has a bearing on the ancient origins of Freemasonry and upon its future in the coming Aquarian Age …”

[Masonry In The New Age, p. 56]

Then, on pages 55-56, Perkins says that today’s Mason has no idea that Freemasonry comes from such an ancient, esoteric source. Most Masons today understand that the roots of their organization are in Satanism. When Perkins said that Freemasonry had its origins in Shamballa, he just identified Masonry as Satanic.

Alice Bailey, with her Demon MasterMaster D.K. – writing through her, stated that

“Shamballa is the mythological place where the ‘Lord of the World’, Sanat Kumara, or Shiva , is supposed to live.”

[Discipleship in the New Age].

Masonic author, Perkins, has just admitted that Freemasonry originated in the place where Shiva (Satan) lives.

Manly P. Hall, 33rd Degree Mason, K.T., in his book, Initiates of the Flame boldly admits Freemasonry is from Hell:

“Those who follow the path of faith (or the heart) use water and are known as the Sons of Seth, while those who follow the path of the mind and action are the Sons of Cain, who was the son of SAMAEL , the Spirit of Fire. Today, we find the latter among the alchemists, the Hermetic philosophers, the Rosicrucians and the Freemasons.”

[p. 20]

Hall places Freemasonry among the circle of the damned — Sons of Cain , who rebelled against God; alchemists who are known sorcerers, Black Magicians, and worshippers of Satan, and the Rosicrucians who have so desecrated the precious cross of Jesus Christ with Pentagrams and Hexagrams as to make you sick.

Hall’s major revelation was that Freemasonry is the son of SAMAEL. being careful not to confuse Samael with the beloved prophet Samuel. SAMAEL is one of the Infernal Names of Satan. In fact,House of Theosophy author, writing under the influence of her demon possessing her — Master D.K. — identifies SAMAEL as Satan! [The Secret Doctrine] In fact, Satanists have a symbol of SAMAEL.

The pentagram on the left with the one point up represents the Divine Man specifically and Lucifer the good god generally; the pentagram on the right with two stars up and the goats head is called the Goats Head of Mendes by most Satanists, but Black Magick Satanists call him SAMAEL.

A Shriner Freemason admits to worshipping Lucifer

EXCERPT FROM: HUMANUM GENUS (On Freemasonry)
Pope Leo XIII

Encyclical of Pope Leo XIII 20 April 1884

“34. Wherefore, not without cause do We use this occasion to state again what We have stated elsewhere, namely, that the Third Order of St. Francis, whose discipline We a little while ago prudently mitigated,[16]
should be studiously promoted and sustained; for the whole object of this Order, as constituted by its founder, is to invite men to an imitation of Jesus Christ, to a love of the Church, and to the observance of all Christian virtues; and therefore it ought to be of great influence in suppressing the contagion of wicked societies. Let, therefore, this holy sodality be strengthened by a daily increase. Amongst the many benefits to be expected from it will be the great benefit of drawing the minds of men to liberty, fraternity, and equality of right; not such as the Freemasons absurdly imagine, but such as Jesus Christ obtained for the human race and St. Francis aspired to: the liberty, We mean, of sons of God, through which we may be free from slavery to Satan or to our passions, both of them most wicked masters; the fraternity whose origin is in God, the common Creator and Father of all; the equality which, founded on justice and charity, does not take away all distinctions among men, but, out of the varieties of life, of duties, and of pursuits, forms that union and that harmony which naturally tend to the benefit and dignity of society. (Amen!)

The Morgenthau Plan – AKA The Jewish plan to rid the world of Germans.

I take this somewhat personally since if this Evil JEWISH plan had been implimented I would NOT be typing this!

The Morgenthau Plan, proposed by United States Secretary of the Treasury Henry (The Jew) Morgenthau, Jr., advocated that the Allied occupation of Germany following World War II include measures to eliminate Germany’s ability to wage war. (AKA Genocide)

Roosevelt’s support for the plan

Secretary of the Treasury Henry J. Morgenthau Jr. convinced Roosevelt to write to Secretary of State Cordell Hull and Secretary of War Henry L. Stimson saying that a US occupation policy which anticipated that “Germany is to be restored just as much as the Netherlands or Belgium” was excessively lenient. A better policy would have the Germans “fed three times a day with soup from Army soup kitchens” so “they will remember that experience the rest of their lives.” Morgenthau was the only Cabinet member invited to participate in the Quebec Conference during which the Plan was agreed to.

Roosevelt’s motivations for agreeing to Morgenthau’s proposal may be attributed to his desire to be on good terms with Joseph Stalin and to a personal conviction that Germany must be treated harshly. In an August 26, 1944 letter to Queen Wilhelmina of the Netherlands, Roosevelt wrote that “There are two schools of thought, those who would be altruistic in regard to the Germans, hoping by loving kindness to make them Christians again — and those who would adopt a much ‘tougher’ attitude. Most decidedly I belong to the latter school, for though I am not bloodthirsty, I want the Germans to know that this time at least they have definitely lost the war.” Roosevelt is also quoted as saying to Morgenthau that “We have got to be tough with Germany and I mean the German people not just the Nazis. We either have to castrate the German people or you have got to treat them in such a manner so they can’t just go on reproducing people who want to continue the way they have in the past

World Jewish Congress approves resolution calling for criminalizing Holocaust denial

holocaust

The resolution on anti-Semitism also calls countries where appropriate constitutional provisions exist to consider banning neo-Nazi parties.

ed note–so, in other words, these same Jewish interests CONSTANTLY lecturing others on ‘free speech’ and CONSTANTLY warning of the dangers of ‘Islamic Shariah Law’ where people are punished for holding/voicing opinions contrary to the precepts of a certain religion are now calling for laws to be made criminalizing free speech/free thought as pertains the ‘holy of holies’–meaning the Holocaust.

As one famous philosopher stated over and over when warning of Jewish power, ‘beware the leaven of the pharisees, which is hypocrisy and lying’

Haaretz

The World Jewish Congress approved on Tuesday a resolution that calls on countries around the world, “in particular those whose Jewish populations were decimated in the Shoah,” to outlaw the public denial of the Holocaust, and where appropriate constitutional provisions exist, to consider banning neo-Nazi parties.

The resolution also urges Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orban and other national leaders and legislators in Europe to join the 125 legislators from more than 40 countries in signing the 2009 London Declaration on Combating Anti-Semitism.

The WJC decided to hold its Plenary Assembly in the Hungarian capital as an expression of solidarity with the local Jewish community in the city, who have been under threat of rising anti-Semitism ever since the extreme right-wing Jobbik Party won a relatively large share of the vote in the last election.

The WJC resolution, supported by hundreds of delegates from Jewish communities around the world, urges the Hungarian authorities “to take effective measures including by enacting and enforcing legislation, for the protection of all citizens and residents of this country, in particular vulnerable minorities such as the Roma and the Jews, against threats of violence, racist hate and insults and the denial of the Holocaust.”

On Sunday night, the Hungarian prime minister opened the Plenary Assembly promising to act more forcefully against anti-Semitism, although he did not specifically mention the Jobbik Party, which captured 17 percent of the vote in the 2010 election. WJC officials expressed disappointment with his speech, which to their minds lacked substance.

In the resolution, the WJC calls on Hungary “to recognize that the ideology and the actions of the Jobbik movement and its subsidiaries, including the New Hungarian Guard, pose a fundamental threat to Hungary’s democracy, and that decisive action by all democratic forces against these contemporary expressions of extremism must now be taken.”

The resolution also expresses concern about recent signs of rising anti-Semitism in Ukraine.

Earlier today, the Plenary Assembly heard about a new legislative initiative in Greece, which promises a radical crackdown on anti-Semitism and other forms of racism in the country. David Saltiel, the head of the country’s Jewish community, who reported on the development, said the legislation will be submitted to parliament in the coming days, following the Easter holiday break.

According to the legislation, any individual or group that incites against or acts violently toward other individuals or groups “because of their racial origin, the color of their skin, their religion and/or their sexual preferences” could be punished with three months to six years in jail and be fined up to 20,000 euros. The same punishments would apply to Holocaust denial and the National Socialist salute. The legislation also stipulates that if a parliamentary party chief is found to be in violation, public funding for his or her party would be suspended.

David Irving:

The Morgenthau Plan, more formally known as the Treasury Plan for the Treatment of Germany, was devised by Assistant Treasury Secretary Harry Dexter White and Secretary Henry R. Morgenthau Jr. in the summer of 1944. Morgenthau had just visited the battlefields of Normandy and spoken with General Dwight D Eisenhower, the Supreme Allied Commander, then arrived in Britain for talks with Mr Winston Churchill, the British prime minister and his advisers.

While important elements of the Plan, including the subtle re-education of the Germans by their own refugees and the dismantling of German heavy

industry to aid British exports, were indeed put into effect, in the directive 1067 which the U.S. Joint Chiefs of Staff finally issued to Eisenhower, the main parts of the Morgenthau Plan, including orders to liquidate entire classes of suspected Nazi war criminals upon simple identification, and to leave the German nation to ‘stew in its own juice,’ were not formally implemented.

The Morgenthau Plan would have led to the death by starvation and pestilence of ten million Germans in the first two years after the war, in addition to the one million who had been killed in the saturation bombing and the three million killed in the enforced expulsion from Germany’s eastern territories.

The Plan, enthusiastically adopted by German-born Lord Cherwell (Professor Friedrich A. Lindemann, Churchill’s close friend, economic, strategic and scientific adviser), was pushed through at the Quebec summit conference between Roosevelt and Churchill on September 15, 1944.

It was part of the price that Churchill and Cherwell were willing to pay for a broad package of American concessions over which Morgenthau had political control including further Lend-lease aid (Phase II) to the British Empire after the war; moreover Mr Churchill needed his support on military issues including joint British strategic control of the atomic bomb (the Hyde Park agreement which was signed on September 18, 1944) and Britain’s participation in the war in the Pacific. We can only speculate about Harry Dexter White’s purpose in canvassing a plan which would have ruined the largest country in Central Europe, the last bastion that would protect Western Europe from the Red Army in post-war years.

The memorandum endorsing the plan’s objectives was initialled (Okayed) by F.D.R. and W.C. on September 15, 1944.

The Plan caused immediate controversy. Hearing that it had been initialled at Quebec, Henry L. Stimson, Secretary of War (Kriegsminister), made bitter comments about the Semites in his unpublished private diary. Anthony Eden, British foreign secretary (1940-1945).and later prime minister, dismissed Morgenthau’s and Lord Cherwell’s lobbying, in a hitherto unpublished document, as a piece of gratuitous impertinence: ‘These ex-Germans,’ wrote Eden, ‘seem to wish to wash away their ancestry in a bath of hate. A.E. Nov 19.’

When details of the Morgenthau Plan leaked to the press in America, angry British politicians demanded to know if Churchill had indeed signed such a document.

In 1953, after the F.B.I. levelled Soviet spy charges against the plan’s co-author, Herry Dexter White, Sir Winston Churchill sent to Lord Cherwell a letter behind which was all the anxiety and guilt of a great man who realizes he has been duped.

The Morgenthau Plan and the Problem of Policy Perversion

Prof. Anthony Kubek

The Morgenthau Diaries consist of 900 volumes located at Roosevelt Library in Hyde Park, New York. As a consultant to the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee, I was assigned to examine all documents dealing with Germany, particularly ones related to the Morgenthau Plan for the destruction of Germany following the Second World War. The Subcommittee was interested in the role of Dr. Harry Dexter White, the main architect of the Plan.

Secretary of the U.S. Treasury Henry Morgenthau, Jr. served in President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s Cabinet from January of 1934 to July of 1945. Before Morgenthau was appointed Secretary of the Treasury, he had lived near Roosevelt’s home at Hyde Park, N.Y. for two decades and could be counted as one of his closest and most trusted friends. His appointment was clearly the culmination of twenty years of devotion to, and adoration of, his neighbor on the Hudson. According to his official biographer, Morgenthau’s “first joy in life was to serve Roosevelt, whom he loved and trusted and admired.” /1

The Treasury Department under Secretary Morgenthau had many functions that went beyond anything in the Department’s history. The Morgenthau Diaries reveal that the Treasury presumed time and time again to make foreign policy. In his Memoirs Secretary of State Cordell Hull described it in these terms:

Emotionally upset by Hitler’s rise and his persecution of the Jews, Morgenthau often sought to induce the President to anticipate the State Department or act contrary to our better judgment We sometimes found him conducting negotiations with foreign governments which were the function of the State Department. His work in drawing up a catastrophic plan for the postwar treatment of Germany and inducing the President to accept it without consultation with the State Department, was an outstanding instance of this interference. /2

Actually it was Dr. Harry Dexter White, Morgenthau’s principal adviser on monetary matters and finally Assistant Secretary of the Treasury, who conducted most of the important business of the Department. The Diaries reveal that White’s influence was enormous throughout the years of World War II. Shortly after Morgenthau became Secretary in 1934, White joined his staff as economic analyst on the recommendation of the noted economist, Prof. Jacob Viner of the University of Chicago. Then 42 years old, White was about to receive a doctorate in economics from Harvard University, where he previously had taught as an instructor. He moved up quickly in the Treasury Department, named in 1938 as Director of Monetary Research and in the summer of 1941 acquiring an additional title as “Assistant to the Secretary.” Articulate, mustachioed, and nattily dressed, he was a conspicuous figure in the Treasury but remained unknown to the public until 1943, when newspaper articles identified him as the actual architect of Secretary Morgenthau’s monetary proposals for the postwar period.

The Diaries reveal White’s technique of dominating over general Treasury affairs by submitting his plans and ideas to the Secretary, who frequently carried them directly to the President It is very significant that Morgenthau had access to the President more readily than any other Cabinet member. He ranked beneath the Secretary of State in the Cabinet, but Hull complained that he often acted as though “clothed with authority” to project himself into the field of foreign affairs. Morgenthau, Hull felt, “did not stop with his work at the Treasury.” /3

Over the years White brought into the Treasury a number of economic specialists with whom he worked very closely. White and his colleagues were in a position, therefore, to exercise on American foreign policy influence which the diaries reveal to have been profound and unprecedented. They used their power in various ways to design and promote the so-called Morgenthau Plan for the postwar treatment of Germany. Their actions were not limited to the authority officially delegated to them: their power was inherent in their access to, and influence upon, Secretary Morgenthau and other officials, and in the opportunities they had to present or withhold information on which the policies of their superiors might be based. What makes this a unique chapter in American history is that Dr. White and several of his colleagues, the actual architects of vital national policies during those crucial years, were subsequently identified in Congressional hearings as participants in a network of Communist espionage in the very shadow of the Washington Monument. Two of them worked for the Chinese Communists.

Stated in its simplest terms, the objective of the Morgenthau Plan was to de-industrialize Germany and diminish its people to a pastoral existence once the war was won. If this could be accomplished, the militaristic Germans would never rise again to threaten the peace of the world. This was the justification for all the planning, but another motive lurked behind the obvious one. The hidden motive was unmasked in a syndicated column in the New York Herald Tribune in September 1946, more than a year after the collapse of the Germans. The real goal of the proposed condemnation of “all of Germany to a permanent diet of potatoes” was the communization of the defeated nation. “The best way for the German people to be driven into the arms of the Soviet Union,” it was pointed out, “was for the United States to stand forth as the champion of indiscriminate and harsh misery in Germany.” /4

Anyone who studies the Morgenthau Diaries can hardly fail to be deeply impressed by the tremendous power which accumulated in the grasping hands of Dr. Harry Dexter White, who in 1953 was identified by Edgar Hoover as a Soviet agent. White assumed full responsibility for “all matters with which the Treasury Department has to deal having a bearing on foreign relations…” /5 He and his colleagues had Secretary Morgenthau’s complete approval in the formulation of a blueprint for the permanent elimination of Germany as a world power. The benefits which might accrue to the Soviet Union as a result of such Treasury planning were incalculable.

When members of the Senate Internal Security sub committee asked Elizabeth Bentley, who was a courier between White and Soviet agents, whether she knew of a similar “Morgenthau Plan” for the Far East, she gave the following testimony:

Miss Bentley: No. The only Morgenthau Plan I knew anything about was the German one.

Senator Eastland: Did you know who drew that plan?

Miss Bentley: [It was] Due to Mr. White’s influence, to push the devastation of Germany because that was what the Russians wanted.

Senator Ferguson: That was what the Communists wanted? Miss Bentley: Definitely, Moscow wanted them [German factories] completely razed because then they would be of no help to the allies.

Mr. Morris: You say that Harry Dexter White worked on that?

Miss Bentley: And on our instructions he pushed hard. /6

When J. Edgar Hoover testified before the Subcommittee on November 17, 1953, he affirmed this testimony:

All information furnished by Miss Bentley, which was susceptible to check has proven to be correct. She had been subjected to the most searching of cross-examinations; her testimony has been evaluated by juries and reviews by the courts and has been found to be accurate.

Mr. Hoover continued:

Miss Bentley’s account of White’s activities was later corroborated by Whittaker Chambers; and the documents in White’s own handwriting, concerning which there can be no dispute, lend credibility to the information previously reported on White. /7

Morgenthau hit the ceiling when he got a copy of the Handbook for Military Government in Germany, which was designed for the guidance of every American and British official upon entering Germany. The Handbook offered a glimpse of a very different kind of occupation that Treasury officials were hoping for. Its tone was moderate and lenient throughout Germany was not only to be self-supporting but was to retain a relatively high standard of living. Morgenthau wasted no time in showing the Handbook to President Roosevelt, who immediately rejected its philosophy as too soft. Impressed by the critical memorandum White had prepared, the President killed the Handbook and sent a stinging memorandum to the Secretary of War, Henry L. Stimson, and a copy of which was sent to Hull. “This so-called Handbook is pretty bad,” Roosevelt began, and he instructed that “all copies” be withdrawn immediately because it gave him the impression that Germany was to be “restored just as much as The Netherlands or Belgium, and the people of Germany brought back as quickly as possible to their pre-war estate.” /8

Thus both Hull and Stimson were put on notice by the President that the State and War Departments must develop harsher attitudes towards Germany or be bypassed in the formulation of that policy. According to General Lucius Clay, suppression of the Handbook eventually had a “devastating effect on the morale of American officials responsible for disarming Germany.” /9

Meanwhile the State Department and the Joint Chiefs of Staff had earlier completed their own prospectus and directive for postwar Germany. In the State document there was to be no “large-scale and permanent impairment of all German industry.” /10 ICS 1067, as the military directive was numbered, was unmistakably akin in spirit to the “soft” State Department prospectus. Moreover, it was in “harmony” with the Handbook — that is to say, this draft not only tolerated but actually encouraged friendly relations between American soldiers and German civilians. From various inter departmental meetings with State and War, a new version of JCS 1067 finally emerged. It completely reversed the spirit of the original draft. It was largely the handiwork of Harry Dexter White. It is indeed remarkable how the Treasury intervened and eventually got the State and War Departments to alter their basic policy on postwar Germany.

In the realm of finance, of course, the Secretary of Treasury would naturally be involved in the postwar treatment of Germany. But Morgenthau delved deeply into matters altogether unrelated to economics. The Germans needed psychiatry, Morgenthau told White. He said he was interested in “treating the mind rather than the body,” and in planning “how to bring up the next generation of children.” It might be wise to take the whole Nazi SS group out of Germany, he thought, and deport them to some other part of the world. “Just taking them bodily,” he told White, and he “wouldn’t be afraid to make the suggestion” even though it might be very “ruthless … to accomplish the act.” /11

Regarding the punishment of Nazi leaders, White suggested that a list of “war criminals” be prepared and presented to American officers on the spot, who could properly identify the guilty and shoot them on sight. Morgenthau remarked jokingly that a good start could be made with Marshal Stalin’s “list of 50,000” — a reference to Stalin’s vodka toast to Roosevelt and Churchill at the Teheran Conference. /12

The disposition of the Ruhr Valley was one of the main topics discussed in one of the many Treasury meetings. For many years the coal fields of the Ruhr had been essential to the German economy. The British economist John Maynard Keynes had said after World War I that the Kaiser’s empire was built “more truly on coal and iron than on blood and iron.” /13 Coal was the backbone of all German industry, vital to her electric power and to her chemical, synthetic oil, and steel industries. /14 It was Morgenthau’s persistent view, therefore, that the Ruhr should be “locked up and wiped out,” and he was positive that the President was in “complete accord” on this point.

As the discussion proceeded, White shrewdly intimated that it might be better to place the Ruhr under international controls which would “produce reparations for twenty years.” This was a straw proposal that Morgenthau promptly rejected. “Harry, you can’t sell it to me at all,” he said, “because it would be under control only a few years and the Germans will have another Anschluss!” The only program he would have any part of, Morgenthau declared, was “the complete shut-down of the Ruhr.” When Harold Gaston, the Treasury public relations officer, interrupted to ask whether this meant “driving the population out,” Morgenthau replied: “I don’t care what happens to the population… I would take every mine, every mill and factory and wreck it.” “Of every kind?” inquired Gaston. “Steel, coal, everything. Just close it down,” Morgenthau said. “You wouldn’t close the mines, would you?” inquired Daniel Bell, one of the Secretary’s assistants. “Sure,” replied Morgenthau, and he reiterated that the only economic activity which should remain intact was agriculture — and that could be placed under some type of international control. He was for destroying Germany’s economic power first, he said, and then “we will worry about the population second.”

Morgenthau seemed very confident that the President would not waver in his support of a punitive program for postwar Germany. Any effective plan, however, would have to be executed within the next six months, or otherwise the Allies might suddenly become .”soft.” The best way to begin, Morgenthau advised, was to have American engineers go to every synthetic gas factory, and dynamite them or “open the water valves and flood them.” Then let the “great humanitarians” simply sit “back and decide about the population afterwards.” Eventually the Ruhr would resemble “some of the silver mines in Nevada,” Morgenthau said. “You mean like Sherman’s march to the sea?” asked Dan Bell. Morgenthau answered bluntly that he would make the Ruhr a “ghost area.” /15

Such was the character of Secretary Morgenthau’s views on the treatment of Germany. Never in American history had there been proposed a more vindictive program for a defeated nation. With the Treasury exerting unprecedented influence in determining American policy toward Germany, the fallacies of logic, evasion of issues and deliberate disregard of essential economic relationships manifest in the above conversation were incorporated in the postwar plan as finally adopted. Furthermore, no paper of any importance dealing with the occupation of Germany could be released until approved by the Treasury. The State and War Departments became virtually subservient to the Treasury in this area, normally their responsibility. /16

At a meeting in the President’s office, Morgenthau and Stimson presented their opposite views. Stimson objected vigorously to the Treasury recommendation for the wrecking of the Ruhr. “I am unalterably opposed to such a program,” he declared, holding it to be “wholly wrong” to deprive the people of Europe of the products that the Ruhr could produce. /17 The Treasury Plan, if adopted, would breed new wars, arouse sympathy for Germans in other countries, and destroy resources needed for the general reconstruction of ravaged Europe. He urged the President not to make a hasty decision, and to accept “for the time being” Hull’s suggestion that the controversial economic issue be left for future discussion. /18

At the Quebec summit conference between Roosevelt and Churchill in September 1944, Morgenthau was asked to explain his plan to the British. Churchill was horrified and “in violent language” called the plan “cruel and un-Christian.” But Morgenthau hammered on the idea that the destruction of the Ruhr would create new markets for Britain after the war. He also promised Churchill an American loan of $6.5 billion! Churchill “changed his mind” the next morning. /19

Although foreign affairs and military matters were discussed in depth at the Quebec Conference, neither Hull nor Stimson were in attendance. The Treasury Department took precedence over State and War in negotiations regarding Germany.

The effects of Morgenthau’s victory at Quebec were quickly felt in Washington. At a luncheon with Undersecretary of War Robert Patterson, Morgenthau brought up the Quebec agreement. Patterson said jokingly: “To degrade Europe by making Germany an agricultural country, isn’t that offensive to you?” Morgenthau replied: “Not in the case of Germany.” /20

Hull felt strongly that Morgenthau should have been kept out of the field of general policy, and so did Stimson. When Stimson heard of the President’s endorsement of the Treasury plan at Quebec, he quickly drafted another critical memorandum. “If I thought that the Treasury proposals would accomplish [our agreed objective, continued peace),” he wrote, “I would not persist in my objections. But I cannot believe that they will make for a lasting peace. In spirit and in emphasis they are punitive, not, in my judgment, corrective or constructive.” He continued:

It is not within the realm of possibility that the whole nation of seventy million people, who have been outstanding for many years in the arts and the sciences and who through their efficiency and energy have attained one of the highest industrial levels in Europe, can by force be required to abandon all their previous methods of life, be reduced to a level with virtually complete control of industry and science left to other peoples … Enforced poverty is even worse, for it destroys the spirit not only of the victim but debases the victor. It would be just such a crime as the Germans themselves hoped to perpetrate upon their victims — it would be a crime against civilization iLself. /21

Word of “Morgenthau’s coup at Quebec” leaked to the press with two results. One was that Roosevelt, because of the adverse reaction, evidently concluded that his Treasury Secretary had made “a serious blunder.” The other was to stiffen German resistance on the Western front. Until then there was a fair chance that the Germans might discontinue resistance to American and British forces while holding the Russians at bay in the East in order to avoid the frightful fate of a Soviet occupation. This could have shortened the war by months and could have averted the spawning of malignant communism in East Germany.

How the Treasury officials were able to integrate basic features of their plan into the military directive, originally prepared by the Joint Chiefs of Staff and known as JCS 1067, is fully disclosed in the Diaries. White saw to it that many elements of his thinking were embodied in ICS 1067. Previous directives for guidance of American troops upon entrance into Germany, which already had undergone six or more revisions of a stylistic nature, were now brought more in line with the punitive thinking of Morgenthau and White. A new directive, which called for a more complete de-nazification, was, with some modifications, the spirit and substance of the Treasury plan. In the two full years that ICS 1067 was the cornerstone of American policy, Germany was punished and substantially dismantled in accord with the basic tenets of the Morgenthau Plan. JCS 1067 forbade fraternization by American personnel with the Germans, ordered a very strict program of de-nazification extending both to public life and to business, prohibited American aid in any rebuilding of German industry, and emphasized agricultural rehabilitation only.

Subsequently, JCS 1067 became a severe handicap to American efforts in Germany. It constituted what may be called without exaggeration a heavy millstone around the neck of the American military government. It gave only limited authority to to the United States military government by specifically prohibiting military officials from taking any steps to rehabilitate the German economy except to maximize agricultural production.

Through various channels, White had gathered information concerning the kind of policy directives other departments had in preparation. This he was able to achieve through a system of “trading” which Morgenthau had initiated at his suggestion. As Elizabeth Bentley told the Internal Security Subcommittee, ‘We were so successful getting information… largely because of Harry White’s idea to persuade Morgenthau to exchange information.” Treasury officials, for example, would send information to the Navy Department, and the Navy would reciprocate. There were, according to Miss Bentley, at least “seven or eight agencies” trading information with Morgenthau. /22

At the Yalta Conference on February 4, 1945, the question of postwar treatment of Germany was the most important item on the agenda. The President’s conduct suggests the powerful effect on his thinking of White’s masterplan and Morgenthau’s salesmanship. On the major points regarding Germany the President easily capitulated to the Soviets. Stalin and Roosevelt were in general accord that the defeated Germans should be stripped of their factories and left to take care of themselves. But Churchill wished to preserve enough of the existing economic structure of Germany to permit the defeated nation to recover to some degree.

In his book Beyond Containment, William H. Chamberlain assesses Yalta as a tragedy of appeasement:

Like Munich, Yalta must be set down as a dismal failure, practically as well as morally … The Yalta Agreement represented, in two of its features, the endorsement by the United States of the principle of human slavery. One of these features was the recognition that German labor could be used as a source of reparations … And the agreement that Soviet citizens who were found in the Eastern zones of occupation should be handed over to Soviet authorities amounted, for the many Soviet refugees who did not wish to return, to the enactment of a fugitive slave law. /23

After President Roosevelt returned from Yalta, State Department officials grasped an opportunity to push through their own program for postwar Germany. On March 10, 1945, Secretary of State Edward Stettinius submitted for the President’s consideration the draft of a new policy directive for the military occupation of Germany. The prime movers in this strategy were Leon Henderson, James C. Dunn, and James W. Riddleberger, the departmental expert on German affairs. They purposely did not consult with Treasury officials because they knew there would be major objections from them. The March 10 memorandum was a reasonable substitute for the rigorous JCS 1067, which was so pleasing to White and Morgenthau. It was based on the central concept that Germany was important to the economy recovery of Europe. It provided for joint allied control of defeated Germany, preservation of a large part of German industry, and a “minimum standard of living” for the German people. The memorandum had no provision for dismemberment, and Germany was to begin “paying her own way as soon.. as possible.” /24

When Morgenthau saw a copy of the State Department memorandum, he became so furious that he immediately telephoned Assistant Secretary of War John J. McCloy to voice his complaints. “It’s damnable, an outrage!” he exclaimed. “Riddleberger and these fellows are just putting this thing across … I’m not going to take it lying down.” The State Department plan, if adopted, would have spelled complete defeat for Morgenthau and White. “It makes me so mad,” Morgenthau raged, “I think the President should fire Jimmy Dunn and two or three other fellows.” /25

Several days later, armed with a memorandum drafted by White, Coe, and Glasser, he hurried to the White House. He was disturbed to find Roosevelt’s daughter, Anna, and her husband, Maj. John Boettinger, caring for the President, “whose health by that time was faltering to the point where mental lapses could be expected.” Roosevelt apparently no longer thought that Morgenthau had “pulled a boner” with his destroy-Germany plan and when Boettinger commented “You don’t want the Germans to starve,” the President replied “Why not?” Morgenthau told White he was worried about Boettinger’s attitude. The question one may ask is did the Soviets know what the American people did not know — that Roosevelt was close to death and liable to blackouts at any moment?

Morgenthau reported jubilantly, however, to his “team” that the President had accepted his plan as “a good tough document.” He confided in his diary:

We have a good team, they just can’t break the team… It is very encouraging that we had the President back us up… they tried to get him to change and they couldn’t — the State Department crowd. Sooner or later, the President just has to clean his house. I mean the vicious crowd… They are Fascists at heart… /26

The State Department was sorely disappointed that the President had rejected their March lath memorandum. It was a severe defeat for Riddleberger, Dunn, and others who were advocating a reasonable program for Germany. Morgenthau felt that the new JCS document should declare unmistakably that the State Department paper of March 10 was officially withdrawn. White asked McCloy and General Hilldring whether everyone in the War Department would understand that the new document “superseded” the March 10 memorandum. McCloy assured him that everyone would be duly notified. White then asked whether it would be perfectly “clear” in the Army that the Treasury document “took precedence over and caused the revision of any document contrary to it.” General Hilldring answered there would be no problem here.

A cardinal point of dispute between the Treasury and the Department of War resided in the question of the treatment of German war criminals. Stimson advised the President to have trials rather than the “shoot on sight” policy advocated by Morgenthau. Stimson believed the accused should have a right to be heard and be allowed to call witnesses to his defense. /27 Another subject of controversy between the Treasury on the one side and the State and War on the other was the question of reparations. The Treasury believed that reparations should be limited to whatever the Allies could wring out of defeated Germany at the end of the war. Morgenthau and White were dead set against the old concept of long-term reparations payments, because such annual tribute would necessitate the re-building of industry on a large scale in Germany. They wished to make the Germans “pastoral” and then throw upon them the full responsibility for taking care of themselves. The World War I application of “reparations” would result in nothing more or less that the revitalization of German industrial might. In their thinking this specter loomed large indeed.

White and his colleagues were careful not to jeopardize postwar relations with the Soviet Union. They frequently expressed their fears of Western encirclement of Russia. They thought that those individuals in the American government who wished to restore Germany were motivated by the idea that a strong Reich was necessary as a “bulwark against Russia.” This attitude was certainly responsible for many of the current difficulties between Washington and Moscow. At one of the interdepartmental meetings a dispute developed over the question of compulsory German labor as restitution for war damages in Russia. Treasury officials were boldly advocating the creation of a large labor force with no external controls. This view was challenged by War, State and other departments as treating 2 or 3 million people as slave labor. Morgenthau reminded his opponents that the whole issue of compulsory labor had already been decided upon at Yalta. “We are simply carrying out the Yalta agreement,” he exclaimed, and anyone who is going to protest “… is protesting against Yalta …” It is significant that five months previously, President Roosevelt had sent a memorandum to Morgenthau to the effect that if “they [Russia] want German labor, there is no reason why they should not get it in certain circumstances and under certain conditions.” /28

White opined that if the Russians needed two million German laborers to reconstruct their devastated areas, he saw nothing wrong with it; it was “in the interest” of Russia and even Germany that the labor force come from the ranks of the Gestapo, the S.S., and the Nazi party membership. “That’s not a punishment for crime,” he stated, “that’s merely a part of the reparations problem in the same way you want certain machines from Germany… /29

As long as Morgenthau was Secretary of the Treasury, White performed adroitly in his strange Svengali role. But fundamental changes in the management of American foreign policy occurred after Harry Truman became President. While the President was still a Senator, he read in the newspapers about the Morgenthau Plan, and he didn’t like it. Morgenthau wanted to come to Potsdam, threatening to resign if he was not made a member of the U.S. delegation. Truman promptly accepted his resignation.

What were the final results of the Morgenthau Plan? What actual effect did it have on Germany? “While the policy was never fully adopted,” wrote W. Friedmann, “it had a considerable influence upon American policy in the later stages of the war and during the first phase of military government.” /30 Although President Roosevelt and Prime Minister Churchill eventually recognized the folly of what they had approved at Quebec, Morgenthau, White, and the Treasury staff saw to it that the spirit and substance of their plan prevailed in official policy as it was finally mirrored in the punitive directive known as JCS 1067.

In a very definite way JCS 1067 determined the main lines of U.S. policy in Germany for fully two years after the surrender. Beginning in the fall of 1945, to be sure, a new drift in American policy was evident, and it eventually led to the formal repudiation of the directive in July of 1947. Until it was officially revoked, however, the lower administrative echelons had to enforce its harsh provisions. “The military government officers,” writes Prof. Harold Zink, “were unable to see how Germany could be reorganized without a substantial amount of industrialization. They tried to fit the Morgenthan dictates into their economic plans, but they ended up more or less in a state of paralysis.” /31

As White had certainly anticipated, the economic condition of Germany was desperate between 1945 and 1948. The cities remained heaps of debris, and shelter was at a premium as a relentless stream of unskilled refugees poured into the Western zones, where the food ration of 1,500 calories per day was hardly sufficient to sustain life. As Stimson, Riddleberger, and others had predicted, the economic prostration of Germany now resulted in disruption of the continental trade that was essential to the prosperity of other European nations. As long as German industrial power was throttled, the economic recovery of Europe was delayed — and this, in time, led to serious political complications. To nurse Europe back to health, the Marshall Plan was devised in 1947. It repudiated, at long last, the philosophy of the White-Morgenthau program.

The currency reforms of June, 1948, changed the situation overnight. These long overdue measures removed the worst restraints, and thereupon West Germany began its phenomenal economic revival.

After all this has been said, an implicit question haunts the historian. It is this: if the Morgenthau Plan was indeed psychopathically anti-German, was it also consciously and purposefully pro-Russian? The Secretary of the Treasury never denied that his plan was anti-German in both its philosophy and its projected effects, but no one in his department ever admitted that it was also pro-Russian in the same ways. In his book, And Call It Peace, Marshall Knappen suggested in 1947 that the Morgenthau Plan “corresponded closely to what might be presumed to be Russian wishes on the German question. It provided a measure of vengeance and left no strong state in the Russian orbit.” /32

In document after document the Diaries reveal Harry Dexter White’s influence upon both the formative thinking and the final decisions of Secretary Morgenthau. Innocent of higher economics and the mysteries of international finance, the Secretary had always leaned heavily on his team of experts for all manner of general and specific recommendations. /33 White was the field captain of that team; on the German question he called all the major plays from the start. As a result of White’s advice, for example, the Bureau of Engraving and Printing was ordered in April, 1944 to deliver to the Soviet government a duplicate set of plates for the printing of the military occupation marks which were to be the legal currency of postwar Germany. The ultimate product of this fantastic decision was to greatly stimulate inflation throughout occupied Germany, and the burden of redeeming these Soviet-made marks finally fell upon American taxpayers to a grand total of more than a quarter of a billion dollars. /34 White followed this recommendation with another, in May of 1944, which again anticipated the emerging plan. This time he urged a postwar loan of 10 billion dollars to the Soviet Union. /35

Remember that, in her testimony before the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee in 1952, the confessed Communist courier Elizabeth Bentley charged that White was the inside man who prepared the plan for Secretary Morgenthau, and “on our instruction he pushed hard.” Also, J. Edgar Hoover of the FBI charged that White was an active agent of Soviet espionage, and despite the fact he had sent five reports to the White House warning the President of White’s activities, Truman promoted him to a position at the United Nations. When the shocking story of White’s service as a Soviet agent was first revealed by Attorney General Herbert Brownell in a Chicago speech, it created quite a stir of public charges and counter-charges by then retired Harry Truman.

The concentration of Communist sympathizers in the Treasury Department is now a matter of public record. White eventually became Assistant Secretary. Collaborating with him were Frank Coe, Harold Glasser, Irving Kaplan and Victor Perlo, all of whom were identified in sworn testimony as participants in the Communist conspiracy. When questioned by Congressional investigators, they consistently invoked the Fifth Amendment. In his one appearance before the House Committee on Un-American Activities in 1948, White emphatically denied participation in any conspiracy. A few days later he was found dead, the apparent victim of a heart attack (which is questioned by some investigators). Notes in his handwriting were later found among the “pumpkin papers” on Whittaker Chambers’ farm. /36 In a statement before the Senate Internal Security Subcommittee in 1953, Attorney General Brownell declared White guilty of “supplying information consisting of documents obtained by him in the course of duties as Assistant Secretary of the U.S. Treasury, to Nathan Gregory Silvermaster…” /37 Silvermaster passed these documents on to Miss Bentley after photographing them in his basement. When asked before two congressional committees to explain his activities, Silvermaster invoked the Fifth Amendment.

Never before in American history had an unelected bureaucracy of faceless, “fourth floor” officials exercised such arbitrary power over the future of nations as did Harry Dexter White and his associates in the Department of the Treasury under Henry Morgenthau, Jr. What they attempted to do in their curious twisting of American ideals, and how close they came to complete success, is demonstrated in the Morgenthau Diaries, which I had the privilege of examining and which were published by the Subcommittee of the Committee on the Judiciary, United States Senate, in 1967.
