THE ‘JEWISH QUESTION’
NOW A GLOBAL ISSUE

By Brother Nathanael Kapner, Copyright 2009-2010

“JEWS RULE THE WORLD BY PROXY,” said the Malaysian prime minister, Mahathir Mohamad, in a speech to Indonesian heads of state in 2003, “they get others to die for them,” he emphasized.

Bringing the issue of Jewish control up-to-date, on January 29, 2009, South Africa’s deputy foreign minister, Fatima Hajaig, was hailed before the national human rights body for saying that “Jewish money controls the United States.”

Here is what Hajaig told a political rally in Johannesburg in mid January 2009:

“Jews control America, no matter which government comes into power, whether Republican or Democratic, whether Barack Obama or George Bush. The control of America, just like the control of most western countries, is in the hands of Jewish money.” View Entire Story Here.

Outraged by the remarks, the South African Jewish Board of Deputies filed a complaintagainst Hajaig with the South African human rights body.

JEWISH OUTRAGE GOES GLOBALOUTRAGE TOWARDS ANYONE WHO PROFFERS VALID CRITICISM of Jewish affairs is the continual accepted response by world Jewry. But for a Gentile to be “outraged” by Jewish apartheid in Israel, Jewish genocide in Gaza, Jewry’s applause of Gazan genocide, & Jewish control of American & European political life, is to be slandered, vilified, and to have his or her job and life in jeopardy.

The latest victim of Jewry’s vilification came from the pen of Abraham Foxman of the Anti Defamation League (ADL) on January 23, 2009. Labeling the highly respected journalist Bill Moyers as an “Anti Semite” simply because Moyers censured Israel for its massacre of Palestinian children, Foxman did not blush to blow his putrid Judaic smoke into the face of this high profile Gentile figure.

And the latest human target of Jewish “outrage,” Bishop Richard Williamson, was bloodied with spiteful arrows by the entire global Jewish community beginning on January 24, 2009. Jews were offended when Williamson, a ‘holocaust denying’ bishop, was brought back into the Vatican fold after being excommunicated.

World Jewry, whose outrage was voiced by Germany’s Central Council of Jews and Rabbi David Rosen of the American Jewish Committee, (there are thousands of Jewish “councils” & “committees” ), called the move by the Roman Catholic Church “shameful,” a “mockery,” and “contemptuous of the religion of Judaism.” Now it appears that Jews are demanding of the Catholic Church a new dogma to replace the crucifixion of Christ: “Holocaustology.”

THE JEWISH QUESTION TODAYTHE PHRASE, ‘THE JEWISH QUESTION,’ originates from the title of an 1843 book, “Die Judenfrage,” by the German historian, Bruno Bauer. Bauer argued that Jews could achieve political emancipation only if they relinquished their religious consciousness. Bauer posited that since political emancipation requires a secular state, it does not leave any “space for social identities” such as religion.

But history and evolving social issues have proven Bauer quite wrong. Though political emancipation of the Jews did come about through Jewish secularism, in the end, Jews still clung to their “social identity” through attachment to their historical “religious” roots.

The Jewish Question today goes far beyond the issue of religion. The ‘Jewish Question’ that the entire world is now challenged with has to do with the tremendous power that the Jews — a self-conscious elitist group — wield in the social & political arena, globally.

Jewish control of today’s social & political life was recently summed up by the renowned historian, Mark Weber. In a recent article dealing with the relevance of Holocaust revisionism, Weber addressed the issue of Jewish Zionist power in its historical perspective:

“The Holocaust assumed an important role in the social-cultural life of America and western Europe owing to a phenomenal increase of Jewish influence and power.

The Holocaust Remembrance campaign is not so much a source of Jewish-Zionist power as it is an expression of it. For this reason, debunking the Holocaust will not shatter that power.” View Entire Story Here.

But what will “shatter” the power that the Jews wield over us in our social & political life? How is it that only 5 Congressmen opposed Resolution HR 34 passed by the US Congress on January 9, 2009, absolving the Jews of Israel of committing crimes against humanity in their recent invasion of Gaza? The entire world stands outraged by Israel’s genocide of Gazan innocents, yet US politicians seem to have no conscience whatsoever. Why?

It is because Jews with their money wield control of the careers of US politicians. If a Senator or Congressman does not cater to the Jewish Lobby, chiefly represented by AIPAC which bribes and keeps a running profile on all politicians, their careers will be terminated in the next election.

“Absolute power corrupts and power corrupts absolutely,” even corrupting the very consciences of politicians. But it is now time for the “outrage” that Jews express toward their critics be turned against them. For if we are not outraged by Jewry’s corruption of Western society’s social & political life, we have not been paying attention…

Differences between Free Speech and Hate Speech


Are The Jews Gods Chosen people?


Jew SPEW Videos….

Khazar, Ashkenazi Jews are big-mouthed, immoral people and totally self-centered hypocrites. Spiteful, up the ying-yang. Most of them are all for “Diversity,” NWO/Globalization, non-White Immigration into the White countries of the West (but never, ever in sacred Israel, of course) and having us FIGHT THEIR GD WARS for precious Israel (which they stole because they think God promised them the place).

They’ll do anything to confuse, divide and destroy the one race that most presents a real threat to them: The White Race. If you think about it, you’ll see this has always been the case.

Say one little thing about absolutely anything they, or that lousy evil country Israel ever does and they’ll scream “anti-Semite,” “Nazi,” “hater,” like the paranoid nutcases they are. Because of the Politically Correct muzzle installed on us by them, they fully expect you to keep your mouth shut no matter what they say or do.

They don’t give a damn what you think — they could care less — they’re the “Chosen Ones,” remember?

What’s worse, is that they’re not even the Israelites of the Bible. Say what? Yep, even that, too, is a lie. Go HERE and read up on the real facts of the matter. They sure as hell won’t tell you!

Just watch this hard to find video of the disgusting dyke Jewess, Sandra Bernhard, as she Jew-Spews on Sarah Palin. Read more here

No thumbnail but works fine. See it here and nowhere else!

Folks, this is typical Jew hate for White people. Figure it out — nothing but utter arrogance and hatred for the White Goyim non-stop out of their big fat mouths, 24/7!

Evidently, Dyke Bernhard, or ADL Jews, purposefully went and had all the videos of this removed wherever they could. But I did manage to find the above video at an obscure site, and captured it right before it was deleted. It looks like it was originally created as an on-line Internet ad, specifically directed at Jew elites infesting the Washington, DC area.

                                                                                                                                                                       

Jew rabbi Nachum Shiffren mistakenly tells the truth. LOL

Feeling the hate in Jerusalem.

Liberal “anti-Zionist” Jews interview partying Israelis and so-called “American” Jew traitors visiting sacred Israel while on vacation (they love visiting their true motherland and often even serve in their army). Listen to what they have to say about Obama and Negroes. And we support these truly obnoxious people with our hard-earned tax dollars? Hell, Israel wouldn’t survive one damn year without brainwashed America paying them billions. In fact, Israel literally gets most of America’s foreign financial support.

Catch the drunk guy at the end who says he had a grandmother lost at Auschwitz — all Jews are trained from birth on how to put out that line of bull.

This video is titled “the wife of Victor Vancier” (original name of the Jewish Defense League’s head, Christian hater, Chaim Ben Pesach). I don’t know if she is or not, but she’s definitely one totally crazed, obscene JDL Jewess (note the Star of Satan around her neck). She sure scares the bejeesus out of me!

Totally obnoxious Jewish Defense League freaks causing a ruckus over something stupid on a city street. Word has it, that the funky red-haired big mouth with the bull horn is the “Mad Jewess” herself; who frequently comes here and makes the most inane comments, cursing everybody under the sun. What a total Jew byatch!

Just listen to the pornography hero, the Jew Al Goldstein (SCREW magazine), tell us what he thinks. Not only is the sick pig extremely disgusting (don’t watch if you’re sensitive to the foulest of language), but he’s obviously one arrogant Jew up the ying-yang. Note the other big porno Jews he talks about.
Sarah Silverman: I’m F–king Matt Damon. Like we care, you Jew skank?

Bob Saget’s (oh yeah, he’s a Jew) rendition of the purposefully sickening, Jew Aristocrat “joke.” They find this routine funny (it gets old, fast), but it really shows just how insanely perverted and scatalogical Jews are. Don’t watch if you can’t handle the absolute foulest language. You kiddies better not, either.

Dead Goyim. See a pair of sickingly arrogant Jews spout off about the funeral for a little old White woman (supposedly a friend, too). Jews are extremely disrespectful of anyone not Jewish (especially White Christians), but the lousy GD bastards have the nerve to scream bloody murder should anyone else dare say JACK about them. That’s how self-absorbed Jews are.

The Chief Rabbi of Arad and his followers screaming and harrassing some Israeli Christian women. These wackos are hopped-up “meshugge” (crazy) to the extreme about Christianity and Jesus. Note how these people do NOT look like the ancestry of people from this area, but Eastern European (they are the Khazar race who converted many generations ago). This is how those “meek” orthodox Jews really behave when Jews have control, like in Israel. Sorry SOBs.

Some crazy Jew rabbi telling his congregation that Jews are the greatest, smartest and most moral, kindly, etc. etc. race on the planet. These people literally tell themselves all the time that God gave only them the mandate to lead the rest of us goyim — Jews are so completely off the richter scale in the arrogance department that it’s breathtaking in scope. Note where he says they are only 15 million of them on the planet. They’ve been saying that line of bull for the last 100 years, even after they supposedly lost 6 million in the “holocaust” crap they go on and on about. These people lie so constantly and so big that White people just can’t get their heads around it. This is the actual, real-life “The Big Lie” that Herr Hitler was talking about, not what the Jews have always claimed as the Big Lie — the lying Jews have turned even this quote around on it’s head!

LOOKS LIKE THE CREEPY LITTLE JEWESS REMOVED IT, PROBABLY AFTER SEEING THAT I HAD IT HERE.

OK, so the censoring Jews took the last video out. Can’t be letting the Goyim get wise. But check out the above video from some crazy-haired, smug little Jewess creep telling us the entire Jewish race are the real Jesus (and even reflections of God himself). Can you believe the sheer arrogance? According to her, we have to come to the Jews for holy guidence and if not, all us Goy will end-up in the FEMA camps! Talk about some unbelievably stuck-up people.

Disgusting French Jew and his very own daughter sing in bed about the joys of incest. You would not believe the filthy Jew’s impact on morality in Europe — trust me.

Rahm Emanuel — a love song. Don’t watch this one on a full stomach!

My New Haircut — Jewish Edition. This flabby little putz thinks he’s God’s gift to women. Listen to what he has to say about the “shiksas.” These are truly arrogant and obscene people, not at all like they want you to think.

DELETED for some reason.

Jew York. Bratty, self-centered Jewess does the Jew rap! These people actually believe they are so funny and “hip?” Please. Just think about how they constantly scam America and manipulate us into wars — always killing non-Jews — not only Muslims, but Christians, too. These people could care less about anything besides their own arrogant Jewness and material possesions, while living comfortably in the West.

 

Deleted by Jewish Censors at Youtube. Can’t be letting the Goyim get the real deal.

The midget Jew, Robert Reich, Obamas economic advisor doesn’t want recovery jobs from Obama’s “stimulus” program to go to “White Male Construction Workers.” The proven corrupt Negro politician, Charlie Rangel, smirkingly tells Reich the Middle class won’t bother to do or say anything, since they are too busy trying to work for a living. Unbelievable!

How Three Million Germans were Mass Murdered after Destruction of the Reich

Nigel Jones reviews After the Reich: From the Liberation of Vienna to the Berlin Airlift by Giles MacDonogh.

Giles MacDonogh is a historian of wine and gastronomy, but in this book, pursuing his other consuming interest – German history – he serves a dish to turn the strongest of stomachs. It makes particularly uncomfortable reading for those who compare the disastrous occupation of Iraq unfavourably to the post-war settlement of Germany and Austria.

MacDonogh argues that the months that followed May 1945 brought no peace to the shattered skeleton of Hitler’s Reich, but suffering even worse than the destruction wrought by the war. After the atrocities that the Nazis had visited on Europe, some degree of justified vengeance by their victims was inevitable, but the appalling bestialities that MacDonogh documents so soberly went far beyond that. The first 200 pages of his brave book are an almost unbearable chronicle of human suffering.

His best estimate is that some three million Germans died unnecessarily after the official end of hostilities. A million soldiers vanished before they could creep back to the holes that had been their homes. The majority of them died in Soviet captivity (of the 90,000 who surrendered at Stalingrad, only 5,000 eventually came home) but, shamingly, many thousands perished as prisoners of the Anglo-Americans. Herded into cages along the Rhine, with no shelter and very little food, they dropped like flies. Others, more fortunate, toiled as slave labour in a score of Allied countries, often for years. Incredibly, some Germans were still being held in Russia as late as 1979.

The two million German civilians who died were largely the old, women and children: victims of disease, cold, hunger, suicide – and mass murder.

Apart from the well-known repeated rape of virtually every girl and woman unlucky enough to be in the Soviet occupation zones, perhaps the most shocking outrage recorded by MacDonogh – for the first time in English – is the slaughter of a quarter of a million Sudeten Germans by their vengeful Czech compatriots. The survivors of this ethnic cleansing, naked and shivering, were pitched across the border, never to return to their homes. Similar scenes were seen across Poland, Silesia and East Prussia as age-old German communities were brutally expunged.

Given that what amounted to a lesser Holocaust was unfolding under their noses, it may be asked why the western Allies did not stop this venting of long-dammed-up rage on the (mainly) innocent. MacDonogh’s answer is that it could all have been even worse. The US Treasury Secretary, Henry Morgenthau, favoured turning Germany into a gigantic farm, and there were genocidal Nazi-like schemes afoot to starve, sterilise or deport the population of what was left of the bombed-out cities.

The discovery of the Nazi death camps stoked Allied fury, with General George Patton asking an aide amid the horrors of Buchenwald: ‘Do you still find it hard to hate them?’ But the surviving inmates were soon replaced by German captives – Dachau, Buchenwald, Sachsenhausen and even Auschwitz stayed in business after the war, only now with the Germans behind the wire.

It was Realpolitik, not humanitarian concern, that caused a swift shift in western attitudes towards their former foes. Fear of Communism spreading into the heart of Europe, and the barbarities of the Russians – who kidnapped and killed hundreds of their perceived enemies from the western zones of Berlin and Vienna – belatedly made the West realise that they had beaten one totalitarian power only to be threatened by another.

Even that hardline Kraut-hater Patton was sacked for advocating a pre-emptive strike against Russia. Building up West Germany and saving Berlin from Soviet strangulation with the 1948 airlift became the first battles of the Cold War – even if that meant overlooking Nazi crimes and enlisting Nazi criminals in the ‘economic miracle’ of reconstruction.

Although MacDonogh roundly condemns all the occupying powers, the British emerge with some credit. Apart from one Air Marshal who looted art treasures; and an MI5 interrogator nicknamed ‘Tin Eye’ Stephens who ran a private torture chamber, British hands may have been grubby, but were not deeply blood-stained. British squaddies preferred to purchase their sex privately with a packet of fags or a pair of nylons, rather than in the Soviet style.

MacDonogh has written a gruelling but important book. This unhappy story has long been cloaked in silence since telling it suited no one. Not the Allies, because it placed them near the moral nadir of the Nazis; nor the Germans, because they did not wish to be accused of whitewashing Hitler by highlighting what was, by any standard, a war crime. Giles MacDonogh has told a very inconvenient truth.

The popular image of this man, particularly in the United States, is a crude caricature…

Contrary to popular belief, Goebbels was successful as a propagandist not because he was a master of the “Big Lie,” but rather as a result of his fidelity to facts and truth. As biographer Heiber notes: “Goebbels was accordingly able to celebrate his information policy as being not only superior to the enemy’s in its monolithic character, but also of a ‘seriousness and credibility’ which ‘simply cannot be surpassed.’

The boast could be made with some justification: “Seen in the long view, Goebbels preached, the best propaganda is that which does no more than serve the truth.”

Goebbels’ frankness and even courage won him a measure of popular admiration. Writes Heiber: He understood the value of admitting reverses and even, now and then, errors; his readiness to be thus “candid” was a kind of knowledgeable wink at his audience — “Look, I take you seriously. Let’s be frank with one another” — and enabled him to ensnare them all the more. The result was that later on, after 1943, after he had borrowed … the “blood, sweat and tears” theme of Churchill, people were ready to believe in the ray of hope which he astutely let shine through the somber coloring of his speeches. [p. 134]

“As other influential Nazis began to creep into their shells,” comments Heiber, “Goebbels could dare to appear before a mob and not only gain a hearing, but even arouse faith and hope …” [p. 134]

As the war dragged on, Goebbels’ front-page editorial essays in the weekly paper Das Reich played an increasingly important role in sustaining public morale. They were widely reprinted and routinely read over the radio. “His articles in Das Reich,” acknowledges Heiber, “were indeed excellent, brilliantly written, and full of bright ideas …” [p. 235]

Heiber also notes:

Goebbels’ articles were carefully worked out more than a week before they were to appear, written in excellent, polished German, stylistically enjoyable and relatively discriminating in content; often they seemed illumined by the lofty wisdom of a great thinker. Their very titles were reminiscent of philosophical treatises: “On the Meaning of War,” “The Essential Nature of the Crisis,” “On the Work of the Spirit,” “On Speaking and Being Silent,” “The Indispensability of Freedom,” “About National Duty in War.” …It is all very well turned and very solid. These articles made an impression, and Goebbels knew it. [ p. 252 ]

Regrettably, little of what Goebbels wrote and said during the latter war years — when he was at the peak of his powers — has been translated into English.

One of Goebbels’ greatest wartime propaganda achievements was his exploitation of the Katyn massacre story. In April 1943, the Germans discovered at Katyn, near Smolensk in occupied Russia, a mass grave of thousands of Polish officers who had been taken prisoner by the Soviets in 1939, and shot by Soviet secret police in April 1940. On Goebbels’ orders, German newspapers and magazines devoted great attention to the story, giving it weeks of detailed, often front-page coverage. His astute treatment of the story contributed significantly to a major Allied political defeat — a break in relations between the Soviet government and the Polish government-in-exile. (Meanwhile, American and British officials and newspapers backed the Soviet lie that Germans were responsible for the atrocity.)

In addition to his work as the nation’s chief propagandist, during the war Goebbels took on ever greater organizational and policy-making responsibilities, playing an increasingly important role in keeping the nation’s industrial and social machinery functioning. In February 1942 Hitler entrusted him with special authority to oversee assistance to people ravaged in Allied air attacks — a post that was to assume ever greater importance as the aerial bombardment of Germany steadily escalated.

In the summer of 1944 Hitler named him “Reich Plenipotentiary for the Total War Mobilization.” Thus, during the final catastrophic months of the war Goebbels — along with Armaments Minister Albert Speer — directed Germany’s human and material resources for maximum war production, while simultaneously continuing somehow to operate the nation’s electric power and water plants, transportation and telephone systems, food and fuel supply networks, public schools, radio broadcasting and daily newspaper publishing. This organizational feat of keeping essential social and community services functioning, while at the same time maintaining and even sharply increasing armaments production — in spite of devastating aerial bombardment and an ever worsening military situation — is an achievement without historical parallel.

“We have become a people on the defensive,” Goebbels wrote in Das Reich of Feb. 11, 1945 — eleven weeks before the end. “We work and we fight, we wander, we leave our homes, we suffer and endure, and we do all this with a silent dignity which, in the end, will arouse the admiration of the entire world. Europe may well be happy that it still possesses such a people. Today this people is the salvation of Europe. Tomorrow, therefore, it will be Europe’s pride.”

His final radio address, broadcast over what remained of a tattered network, was delivered on April 19, 1945. As he had done every year since 1933, he spoke on the eve of Hitler’s birthday. Even on this occasion, when the terrible end was glaringly obvious to all, Goebbels still spoke with eloquent, controlled passion, frankly acknowledging the supreme gravity of the situation while inspiring hope. He had not lost his ability to rouse his countrymen with fervor as well as a certain seeming nobility.

“Do not let yourself be disconcerted by the worldwide clamor that will now begin,” he urged in a letter written to his stepson just days before his death. “There will come a day, when all the lies will collapse under their own weight, and truth will again triumph.” In his final testament written just hours before he took his life, Hitler named Goebbels as his successor as Chancellor — a tribute to steadfast loyalty even to the bitter end. But Goebbels held this empty position for just a few hours. After he and his wife had their six children put to death, and with Soviet troops just a few hundred yards away, on the evening of May 1, 1945, Joseph and Magda Goebbels ended their lives in the courtyard outside the Führerbunker.

Contrary to popular belief, Goebbels was successful as a propagandist not because he was a master of the “Big Lie,” but rather as a result of his fidelity to facts and truth. As biographer Heiber notes:

Goebbels was accordingly able to celebrate his information policy as being not only superior to the enemy’s in its monolithic character, but also of a “seriousness and credibility” which “simply cannot be surpassed.” The boast could be made with some justification: Seen in the long view, Goebbels preached, the best propaganda is that which does no more than serve the truth.” [p. 254]

“Goebbels’ real lies, his conscious lies, always pertained to mere detail …,” writes Heiber. “Goebbels’ lies were more in the nature of those equivocations and evasions by which government spokesmen everywhere seek to ‘protect’ the ‘national interest’.” [pp. 134, 135]

It is also common to imagine that, however skilled, Goebbels was little more than a clever ranter who won support from his countrymen by appealing to base feelings of envy, revenge, conceit and arrogant pride. This view, which implicitly demeans Germans as a nation of emotional and mental cripples, is especially widespread in the United States. If he thinks about it at all, the typical American imagines that if he had been living in Third Reich Germany, he would not have “fallen” for Goebbels’ “obvious” lies.

Such a self-flattering view is based on ignorance. In his classic study, Propaganda (New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1968; Vintage, 1973 [p. 54]), French scholar Jacques Ellul pointed out that Goebbels’ postwar image is itself a propaganda distortion:

There remains the problem of Goebbels’ reputation. He wore the title of Big Liar (bestowed by Anglo-Saxon propaganda) and yet he never stopped battling for propaganda to be as accurate as possible. He preferred being cynical and brutal to being caught in a lie. He used to say: “Everybody must know what the situation is.” He was always the first to announce disastrous events or difficult situations, without hiding anything. The result was a general belief between 1939 and 1942 that German communiqués not only were more concise, clearer and less cluttered, but were more truthful than Allied communiqués (American and neutral opinion) — and, furthermore, that the Germans published all the news two or three days before the Allies. All this is so true that pinning the title of Big Liar on Goebbels must be considered quite a propaganda success.

Enric Marco was exposed shortly before he was due to share a platform at the camp with then Prime Minister Jose Luis Rodriguez Zapatero.

Madrid-based historian Benito Bermejo, an expert on Spain’s deportees, became interested in Marco after meeting him at a conference in 2002. Bermejo found his story especially intriguing as Enric Marco claimed to have been imprisoned in Flossenbuerg, a camp in Bavaria and an unusual destination for a Spanish deportee.

Bermejo read all the versions he could find of Marco’s past, starting with his claim that he had been an anarchist forced to flee to France from his home city of Barcelona after the Spanish Civil War had been lost.

“I was curious, interested, but then I became very perplexed.”

“[Marco’s] version of events changed each time he told it, both about the camp and how he had got there,” Bermejo told the BBC.

Benito Bermejo also found it mysterious that on the few occasions he tried to talk to him face to face, Marco did not want to discuss his experiences in Germany.

As head of the Amical de Mauthausen, Marco showed a penchant for high-octane speeches packed with horrific details of life in Flossenbuerg.

He moved several MPs to tears when addressing Congress on International Holocaust Remembrance Day in January 2005.

Searching the foreign ministry archive, the historian found an official request from army command in Catalonia for information on Marco’s whereabouts, as he had failed to present himself for compulsory military service in 1943.

The foreign ministry replied that Marco was at that time employed by the Deutsche Werke naval shipyard in Kiel, northern Germany.

Far from fighting fascism, he had signed up as one of 20,000 Spaniards who worked for the Third Reich under a 1941 agreement between Franco and Hitler.

“So now I know that Marco was not a deportee, that he went to Germany voluntarily and that there is something strange going on,” says Bermejo.

But he still had doubts over the extent of Marco’s deception because some volunteer workers who got into trouble did end up in concentration camps.

Marco was briefly imprisoned in Kiel but never convicted, let alone sent to a camp.

For months Bermejo sought an explanation from him. Then, with the 60th anniversary event at Mauthausen days away, he sent a report to the prime minister’s office and the Amical association. And he waited.

“What more could I do? I decided that going public with what I knew would be a kind of declaration of war and very controversial at that moment.”

————————————————————————————————-

In a secret wartime memorandum, Winston Churchill told his advisers that he wanted to “drench” Germany with poison gas.

Churchill’s July 1944 memo to his chief of staff Gen. Hastings Ismay was reproduced in the August-September 1985 issue of American Heritage magazine. “I you to think very seriously over this question of poison gas,” the four-page note began. Britain’s wartime leader continued: “It is absurd to consider morality on this topic when everybody used it [gas] in the last war without a word of complaint from the moralists or the Church.

On the other hand, in the last war the bombing of open cities was regarded as forbidden. Now everybody does it as a matter of course. It is simply a question of fashion changing as she does between long and short skirts for women.”

Churchill’s directive bluntly stated: “I want a cold-blooded calculation made as to how it would pay to use poison gas … One really must not be bound within silly conventions of the mind whether they be those that ruled in the last war or those in reverse which rule in this.” Specifically he proposed: “We could drench the cities of the Ruhr and many other cities in Germany in such a way that most of the population would be requiring constant medical attention … It may be several weeks or even months before I shall ask you to drench Germany with poison gas, and if we do it, let us do it one hundred per cent. In the meantime, I want the matter studied in cold blood by sensible people and not by the particular set of psalm-singing uniformed defeatists which one runs across now here now here now there.”

Churchill’s proposal, which would have meant violating the 1925 Geneva Protocol outlawing the use of poison gas, was never adopted. His military advisers argued that gas warfare would divert Allied war planes from the more effective strategy of bombing Germany’s industries and cities. Gas attacks would not be decisive, they feared, and Germany would very probably retaliate with devastating effect against Britain. Churchill complained to an associate that he was “not at all convinced by this negative report,” but he reluctantly gave in. “Clearly I cannot make head against the parsons and the warriors at the same time,” he complained in private.

The American Heritage article, written by Stanford University history professor Barton J. Bernstein, also reported that top American military officials urged the U.S. to begin gas warfare against Japan. Maj. Gen. William N. Porter, chief of the Chemical Warfare Service, pleaded in mid-December 1943 with U.S. Army superiors to initiate gas warfare against the Japanese, and on several occasions in 1945 Gen. George C. Marshall, U.S. Army chief of staff, urged using gas in the Pacific. There was some popular support for this view. The New York Daily News declared “We Should Gas Japan,” and Washington Times-Herald agreed, explaining “You Can Cook `Em Better with Gas.” But this was a minority view. About 75 percent of Americans reportedly opposed initiating gas warfare. After the war Gen. Marshall said that the main reason that gas wasn’t used was opposition from the British, who feared that a desperate German might then use it in Europe.

The United States produced about 135,000 tons of chemical warfare agents during the war, while Germany turned out about 70,000 tons, Britain about 40,000 and Japan only 7,500 tons. Although the Allies had larger stockpiles of traditional chemical agents, Germany developed far more advanced and lethal nerve gasses, most notably the devastating agents Tabun, Sarin and Soman. They were never used.

After the war a British Army chemical warfare expert concluded that Germany could have delayed the June 1944 Allied cross-channel invasion by six months if it had gas. “Such a delay,” he noted, “could have given the Germans sufficient time to complete their new V-weapons, which would have made the Allies’ task all the harder and England’s long range bombardment considerably worse.” Even in March and April 1945, when German military resistance was rapidly collapsing, Germany kept its pledge not to use gas. Hitler reportedly refused to consider using poison gas in part because of his recollection of the horror of his own gassing during the First World War, which temporarily blinded him.

Depleted Uranium & Phosphorous: Massive Deformities of Fallujah Babies

[Editor’s Note: American readers and especially military families need to comprehend the depth of criminality by the Pentagon in its decision to use depleted uranium. The Pentagon is dominated by  satanic New World Order traitors who know full well the genetic damage caused by depleted uranium  They are working towards a goal of assisting in the ultimate destruction of America and its military power in order to clear the decks for a One World government. While I’m sure a substantial percentage of Pentagon players are operating on pro-war, Rambonian testosterone, the real decision makers are NWO minions who are undermining America’s long term survival by converting the US military into Third Reich Nazis. The treason is so utterly blatant and obvious. How can so many be so blind? We, the American people, will reap the whirlwind, not the military or political leaders who are behind this treason. They will remain well hidden in underground cities while you and I die because of their treachery…Ken]

Depleted Uranium & Phosphorous: Massive Deformities of Fallujah Babies (June 12, 2008)

http://www.uruknet.de/?p=m44812&hd=&size=1&l=e

Original Title: IRAQ: ‘Special Weapons’ Have a Fallout on Babies

12du_baby.jpgFALLUJAH, Jun 12 (IPS) – Babies born in Fallujah are showing illnesses and deformities on a scale never seen before, doctors and residents say.

The new cases, and the number of deaths among children, have risen after “special weaponry” was used in the two massive bombing campaigns in Fallujah in 2004.

After denying it at first, the Pentagon admitted in November 2005 that white phosphorous, a restricted incendiary weapon, was used a year earlier in Fallujah.

In addition, depleted uranium (DU) munitions, which contain low-level radioactive waste, were used heavily in Fallujah. The Pentagon admits to having used 1,200 tonnes of DU in Iraq thus far.

Many doctors believe DU to be the cause of a severe increase in the incidence of cancer in Iraq, as well as among U.S. veterans who served in the 1991 Gulf War and through the current occupation.

“We saw all the colours of the rainbow coming out of the exploding American shells and missiles,” Ali Sarhan, a 50-year-old teacher who lived through the two U.S. sieges of 2004 told IPS. “I saw bodies that turned into bones and coal right after they were exposed to bombs that we learned later to be phosphorus.

“The most worrying is that many of our women have suffered loss of their babies, and some had babies born with deformations.”

http://www.liveleak.com/e/942_1212054722“I had two children who had brain damage from birth,” 28-year-old Hayfa’ Shukur told IPS. “My husband has been detained by the Americans since November 2004 and so I had to take the children around by myself to hospitals and private clinics. They died. I spent all our savings and borrowed a considerable amount of money.”

Shukur said doctors told her that it was use of the restricted weapons that caused her children’s brain damage and subsequent deaths, “but none of them had the courage to give me a written report.”

“Many babies were born with major congenital malformations,” a paediatric doctor, speaking on condition of anonymity, told IPS. “These infants include many with heart defects, cleft lip or palate, Down’s syndrome, and limb defects.”

The doctor added, “I can say all kinds of problems related to toxic pollution took place in Fallujah after the November 2004 massacre.”

Many doctors speak of similar cases and a similar pattern. The indications remain anecdotal, in the absence of either a study, or any available official records.

The Fallujah General Hospital administration was unwilling to give any statistics on deformed babies, but one doctor volunteered to speak on condition of anonymity — for fear of reprisals if seen to be critical of the administration.

“Maternal exposure to toxins and radioactive material can lead to miscarriage and frequent abortions, still birth, and congenital malformation,” the doctor told IPS. There have been many such cases, and the government “did not move to contain the damage, or present any assistance to the hospital whatsoever.

“These cases need intensive international efforts that provide the highest and most recent technologies that we will not have here in a hundred years,” he added.

The International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) expressed concern Mar. 31 about the lack of medical supplies in hospitals in Baghdad and Basra.

“Hospitals have used up stocks of vital medical items, and require further supplies to cope with the influx of wounded patients. Access to water remains a matter of concern in certain areas,” the ICRC said in a statement.

A senior Iraqi health ministry official was quoted as saying Feb. 26 that the health sector is under “great pressure”, with scores of doctors killed, an exodus of medical personnel, poor medical infrastructure, and shortage of medicines.

“We are experiencing a big shortage of everything,” said the official, “We don’t have enough specialist doctors and medicines, and most of the medical equipment is outdated.

“We used to get many spinal and head injures, but were unable to do anything as we didn’t have enough specialists and medicines,” he added. “Intravenous fluid, which is a simple thing, is not available all the time.” He said no new hospitals had been built since 1986.

Iraqi Health Minister Salih al-Hassnawi highlighted the shortage of medicines at a press conference in Arbil in the Kurdistan region in the north Feb. 22. “The Iraqi Health Ministry is suffering from an acute shortage of medicines…We have decided to import medicines immediately to meet the needs.”

He said the 2008 health budget meant that total expenditure on medicines, medical equipment and ambulances would amount to an average of 22 dollars per citizen.

But this is too late for the unknown number of babies and their families who bore the consequences of the earlier devastation. And it is too little to cover the special needs of babies who survived with deformations.

Depleted Uranium – NATO’s Dark Secret

The US and NATO militaries began using bullets made of DU in the 1991 Gulf War and have been using it in every major armed conflict since that time. It is used because it is extremely dense (1.6 times as dense as lead) which makes it ideal for piercing heavy armor. The U.S. used 640,000 pounds of DU ammunition just in the first gulf war alone. In the 2003 invasion they used an estimated 4,000,000 pounds.

Depleted Uranium Downplayed & Denied by Fed ‘Research’ Advisory Gp.

DU HEALTH HAZARDS DOWNPLAYED
Activists blast scientists, feds for minimizing depleted uranium’s link to Gulf War Illness

DALLAS, Texas—Research on the health effects of the highly toxic weapons substance known as depleted uranium, or DU, is not high on the list of priorities of the Research Advisory Committee on Gulf War Veterans Illnesses, which met July 18 to July 19 in Dallas [Hilton Anatole Hotel] .

Despite this, the veterans group made DU a priority. Despite extensive reports showing the devastating effects of DU, AFP was the only media outlet at the meeting. Although this committee, mainly comprised of scientists, expressed some concern about the effects of DU—the ultra-dense radioactive component used in massive quantities mainly as kinetic-energy penetrators in various U.S. military munitions—other pursuits are taking precedence, at least at this time.

DU, used in the Balkans and currently used extensively throughout Afghanistan and Iraq, is tied to numerous cancers among soldiers and civilians, who inhale DU aerosols or ingest residue through their skin or on their food and in their water. It’s thought to have long-term effects via soil and groundwater infiltration. It as also been linked to birth defects in their offspring, including rare forms that are not usually seen in developed countries.

One prominent researcher at the Dallas meeting claimed concerns about DU and its relation to Gulf War Illness (GWI), while worthy of consideration, may be exaggerated.

“We’ll look at DU in the future if the epidemiological studies implicate it as a possible cause of Gulf War Illness,” committee member Dr. Robert Haley told AFP, just after the program concluded at Hilton Anatole Hotel. He went on to claim: “As far as we can tell, there’s no ‘Gulf War Illness’ in the second Gulf War, (from) 2003 and after.

He said GWI is a term applied to what he called an “ethereal,” or mysterious, variety of maladies that, in his view, stem mainly or solely from Operation Desert Storm and Desert Shield in 1990 to 1991, when hundreds of enemy storage sites containing dangerous chemical and biological military stockpiles, and some nuclear plants, were blown up by U.S. military technicians and fighter pilots. Chemical, biological and radioactive substances were spread around the turbulent, unpredictable environment of the Middle Eastern desert.

But Gulf War I troops were also exposed to DU aerosols and particles, as well as the fallout from such demolitions, all of which are blown across the countryside, often hitting troop formations and civilian centers, especially during the region’s notoriously intense sandstorms.

DU clean-up expert Dr. Doug Rokke, a Vietnam and Gulf War veteran who did not attend the Dallas program but has attended other committee meetings, responded to Haley’s claims by saying that the immediate DU-exposure testing needed within 24 hours of contact with DU residue “was deliberately delayed and denied” during wartime. So 15 to 16 years later, the direct evidence of DU exposure in Gulf War I is gone, but the long-term health effects from DU, including cancers and myriad other problems, are still affecting many veterans.

“Respiratory problems and rashes appear right away [with DU exposure],” Rokke said. Later comes lung cancer and other illnesses.

Rokke acknowledged that exposure to sarin and other chemical agents, hazardous immunizations, pesticides and other substances all contribute to GWI along with DU. He also told AFP that the Veterans Administration’s (VA) own reports through 2006 show that there are 205,097 casualties from the current Iraqi Freedom and Enduring Freedom operations—including 67,000-plus soldiers categorized with “ill-defined” illnesses. He said there are 1,584 with cancers, more than 21,000 with parasitic infectious diseases, and many more with various illnesses, including 36,000 respiratory and 61,000 neurological ailments, in round numbers.

“That’s nonsense,” Rokke said about the notion that GWI is limited to the first Gulf War.

According to VA figures from August 2006 obtained by AFP, of the 205,000 GIs who have returned from Iraq and Afghanistan, at least a third of the total have sought medical care, for such problems as malignant tumors (1,584), endocrinal and metabolic diseases (36,409), nervous system diseases (61,524), digestive system diseases (63,002), musculoskeletal diseases (87,590), and mental disorders (73,157), among many other conditions. One of the largest categories is “ill defined”—or mystery conditions (67,743). In comparison, a relatively small number (35,765) have sought VA care for injuries. Thus, figures obtained by AFP corroborate what Rokke contends.

In the first day of the committee’s hearings, held at the University of Texas Southwestern School of Medicine, a general list of research priorities, which was not necessarily complete or final, was laid out. The main “areas of interest” were, in order: Epidemiological studies of the rates of neurological diseases such as Parkinson’s disease; neuro-imaging, which covers the newest ways to look at subtle differences in brain chemistry that are hard to discern with traditional means; autonomic function; the use of animals as models for studying the effects of Gulf War exposures; the inflammatory effects on Gulf War vets of Gulf War exposures; and, among others, pre-clinical studies of the effects of Gulf War exposure on human cells.

Further down the list, the DU reference fell under the “other topic” category. Centered on studying the soldiers who were at the Camp Doha incident, the DU-related section of the research plan took into account cancer, reproductive effects, multi-symptom conditions, etc.—in comparison to veterans not exposed to DU.

The Camp Doha incident was a series of explosions that ripped through a United States ammunition depot in July 1991, showering soldiers with shrapnel. At least 50 Americans and six Britons were wounded. Injuries ranged from minor cuts to severe shrapnel wounds. The incident, at Blackhorse Camp at Doha, about 12 miles west of Kuwait City, apparently began with an electrical fire on a truck carrying 155-mm. howitzer shells. DU is used in those and many other munitions.

“If Camp Doha shows something, it moves [the DU research] up the hierarchy,” Haley said to more than a dozen researchers at the first hearing. He said an obscure group, known as the Merit Review Group, “has the final say on the science” and is the body that would re-prioritize DU research, depending on the outcome of initial studies.

Haley, who is well known in scientific circles for GWI studies on Navy Seabees, argued for a middle ground between the committee focusing on long-term research that would delay more immediate treatment for veterans with GWI.

Anthony Hardie, who works in Wisconsin’s VA office and is himself an ill Gulf War vet, called the $15 million of funding for the group as “a small pittance of appropriations” and expressed disappointment over the results of earlier phases of GWI research over the last 16 years.

“I’m deeply disappointed this is all we have,” he said, adding that too much money was spent trying to prove “there was nothing wrong.”

After day one, researcher Lea Steele remarked that the clinical application of all the research projects and techniques outlined that day are “dazzling science, yes,” but she’s worried that too many precious dollars will be eaten up in fancy research and not enough will be available to treat sick vets.

The Advisory Committee is chartered by the VA secretary. It welcomes and solicits information from physicians, scientists, veterans and the general public related to medical research about GWI.

Helpful material includes information about treatments, causes, relevant scientific studies and other promising avenues for medical research. Appropriate submissions may be sent to the committee scientific staff. The mailing address: RAC-Gulf War Veterans Illnesses (T-GW), U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, 2200 S.W.

U.S. BLOCKS UN PROBE OF DEPLETED URANIUM BOMBS IN YUGOSLAVIA

By John Catalinotto

A United Nations official who chairs the task force investigating the impact on the environment of the 78-day U.S.-NATO bombing campaign against Yugoslavia said on Oct. 14 that NATO officials had refused to cooperate regarding their use of depleted-uranium weapons.

Pekka Haavisto, task-force chairperson, said his team was unable to determine the extent of pollution caused by uranium-tipped weapons. He said NATO refused either to admit using the weapons or to cooperate with the task force.

Sara Flounders of the International Action Center denounced NATO’s refusal to cooperate. The IAC has opened a Commission of Inquiry to Investigate U.S.-NATO War Crimes Against Yugoslavia. Flounders said that “given the refusal of NATO to cooperate, the commission will have to look to Yugoslav reports of DU contamination to establish the facts.”

Depleted uranium—or DU—is the waste product of the process to collect the enriched uranium used for nuclear weapons or nuclear-power plants. It is radioactive and poisonous. And it is so dense that when turned into a metal alloy it can greatly increase the power of a shell to penetrate armor. DU was heavily used in the 1991 Gulf war against Iraq, especially against Iraqi tanks.

When the DU shell hits metal armor, it starts to burn and releases tiny particles of the radioactive metal into the air. When humans inhale or ingest these particles, the particles lodge in lungs or other organs, becoming a long-term site of radioactive contamination—a hot spot in the body.

Iraqi doctors have found high levels of leukemia and other cancers and birth defects in the areas where DU was most used during the war. In addition, about 100,000 U.S. troops have experienced symptoms categorized as the Gulf War Syndrome, which may be at least partially caused by DU.

“We did not find any evidence that depleted uranium was used against the tanks and vehicles we inspected,” Haavisto said. He admitted, however, that only a small number of tanks had been examined.

In its report, the task force says immediate action is needed to obtain information from NATO confirming “if, how and where” depleted uranium weapons were used.

NATO and Pentagon officers have publicly admitted using depleted uranium weapons during the campaign against Yugoslavia, but they claim it was only in small quantities. Yet they used the A-10 fighter-bomber extensively. This plane, known as the Warthog, can deliver thousands of DU rounds each minute against a target.

Only U.S. planes fired DU weapons in the war against Yugoslavia.

The UN report also recommends immediate action to clean up four pollution “hot-spots”—at Pancevo, Kragujevac, Novi Sad and Bor. Toxic waste spills and other damage at these sites are serious and pose a threat to human health, it stated.

Haavisto, a former Finnish environment minister, said an urgent clean-up program would cost some $20 million. Yugoslav reports stress that the environmental damage is much greater and would require much more money to clear it up adequately.

 

THE VIDEO the VATICAN DOESN’T WANT YOU TO SEE! Enthronement of Satan

A public enthronement of Satan occurred September 26, 2015. Malachi Martin had said that the last Pontiff would be under the control of Satanic forces. According to Malachi Martin, a private enthronement of Satan was completed at the Vatican in 1963, when a group of Luciferian bishops and cardinals came together and venerated Satan in the Vatican. Another ceremony venerating Satan took place on the same day in the United States, and Martin claims these ceremonies were conducted together on purpose. Martin, who was murdered, also gave clues that a public enthronement would take place at some point, as well as the fact that the last pope would be under the direct control of Satan. I suspected something might be coming during this time period (September 22-28, 2015) in which Prometheus (Lucifer) would be unveiled in some way. This happened right in front of our faces.

PAPAL DECREE BANNING CLERGY FROM ROTARY CLUB MEMBERSHIP

On January 11, 1951, The Vatican issued a Decree banning “members of the clergy” from belonging to a Rotary club association.  According to the Decree, lay people are permitted to join as long as they adhere to the provisions set forth in Canon Law, but priests are explicitly forbidden from belonging to Rotary or participating in their meetings.  The WILD VOICE continues to research this, but to the best of our knowledge at this time the Decree has never been officially lifted, rescinded or annulled.  We are most interested in providing true and accurate information and so now respectfully reach out and ask any qualified parties (Canon lawyers, Vatican historians, etc.) to please contact us if they are aware of any credible documentation detailing exactly on what date and by whose authoritythis Papal Decree was officially nullified or amended, if it ever was.  We will immediately update and edit this article as necessary with respect to any new verifiable information.

Here below is the full text of the Papal Decree issued on January 11, 1951.

Papal Decree – Pope Pius XII
Jan 11, 1951
First published in Osservatore Romano, Vatican City daily
(English translation below by the Archdiocese of Chicago)
“The Supreme Sacred Congregation of the Holy Office:  a decree. Wednesday, Dec. 20, 1950.
“The question has been asked of this Supreme Sacred Congregation whether Catholics may be members of the association commonly called “the Rotary club.”
After ascertaining the opinion of the Reverend Fathers Consultors, Their Eminences the Cardinals, charged with safeguarding faith and morals, decreed in their plenary meeting of Wednesday, Dec. 20, 1950 as follows:
Members of the clergy may not belong to a Rotary club association or take part in its meetings; laymen are to be urged to observe the provisions of Canon 684 of Canon Law.
And on the 26th of the same month and year, His Holiness Pope Pius XII approved the resolution and ordered it published, after hearing it in an audience granted to His Excellency the Assessor of the Holy Office.
Given in Rome at the offices of the Holy Office on Jan. 11, 1951.
Marino Marani, Notary of the Supreme Sacred Congregation of the Holy Office.”

CATHOLICISM AND ROTARY – STILL AN OPEN QUESTION ?

Rotary International explains the relationship of The Rotary Club and The Catholic Church in a website article titled “Catholicism and Rotary” (below).  It incorrectly states that Pope Pius VI addressed The Rotary Club in 1970 (Pope Pius VI died in 1799).  We have found a speechPope Paul VI gave to conference attendees of Rotary International in Italy on March 20, 1965 (The Rotarian, June, 1965 issue), and also in Rome in November of 1970, and again in Milan, 1974.  However, there is no evidence in any of his speeches that he had actually and formally reversed the Papal Decree of Pope Pius XII forbidding priests from Rotary membership.
As the article points out, it is true that Pope John Paul II spoke to Rotary International members in Italy both in 1979 and (as part of a larger meeting with other groups) in the year 2000.  Nowhere in these speeches though does he say that the ban on Catholic priests from belonging to Rotary International had ever been lifted.  An important distinction should and must be made between giving a speech to a group of people and holding or endorsing membership in an organization.  Pope John Paul II also spoke to banking associations and space research conference attendees at one time or another, but that obviously does not make him either an investment banker or an astronaut.
Pope Francis is the first known Pope to receive and accept a Rotary Club Membership.
The article also states that The Catholic Truth Society declared that “Rotary is neither secret nor seditious“.  However, The Catholic Truth Society is only a publishing house based in London and of course holds no real Church authority to reverse a Papal Decree.
It would be only logical to assume that if indeed the Rotary Club was able to concretely demonstrate that the Papal Decree of 1951 specifically prohibiting clergy from belonging to The Rotary Club was ever officially reversed then they wouldcertainly mention it.  They don’t.

from ‘Catholicism and Rotary – Rotary Club of Eureka

The problem seems to have started in Spain in 1928 when a bishop laid charges that Rotary was nothing but a new Satanic organization. The church also criticized and condemned Rotary for showing a concept of life of service without reference to church teaching. Indeed, it seems that the church believed it was a secret society with quasi-religious overtones. For whatever reason, the Vatican took up the reins and in 1929 it issued a decree that “it is not expedient” for Catholic priest to participate in Rotary either as members or guest. This decree and its application was worrisome to many Catholics in Rotary not the least of which was then RI President Tom Sutton who was himself a Catholic.

Critical and at times disparaging articles regularly appeared in Catholic newspapers. Sutton’s attempts to convince the Secretary of State at the Vatican were fruitless and the anti-Rotary articles continued to be published.

The factual errors were shown to be false and by 1933 there was a mood swing in the Vatican. Priests were now allowed to use their discretion about attending or even joining Rotary. Nevertheless, one of the results of the church attitude was a slow development of Rotary in predominantly Catholic countries such as Ireland.

The uneasy peace continued until 1951 when yet another Vatican decree warned Priests that they should not join Rotary and that the faithful should be aware of seditious and suspected organizations.

But the world was changing and the decree caused an immediate angry response among others, from the then-Catholic and RI President Arthur Laqueux, and even from the Rotarian, Catholic Bishop of Fort Wayne Indiana who publicly declared the decree “quite incomprehensible.”

Fairly soon, the Vatican begin to react and by the end of the decade, the Catholic Truth Society was able to declare that Rotary is neither secret nor seditious. Gradually there was a thaw in the relationship between the church and Rotary. In 1970 Pope Pius VI addressed Rotarians in Italy and in 1979 Pope John Paul II spoke at the Rotary International convention in Rome praising many of Rotary’s humanitarian programs. Later, Pope John Paul II accepted a Paul Harris Fellowship and a World Understanding and Peace award from Rotary.

Finally, before becoming Pope Francis, then-Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio accepted an honorary membership in the Rotary Club of Buenos Aires.

 

 


‘ROTARIAN JUBILEE’ – AT POPE FRANCIS INVITATION

rotary club pope francis masonOn April 30, 2016 Pope Francis greeted Rotary members at a special Jubilee audience.
According to Vatican Radio nearly 9,000 Rotary members attended the Jubilee Audience in St. Peter’s Square at the invitation of Pope Francis. Rotary kicked off the Rotarian Jubilee the day before with a conference on the challenges refugees are facing worldwide.

The conference was organized by the Jesuit Refugee Service – in partnership with Rotary, UNHCR and WFP – and entitled “Helping Refugees to Start Over”.
Mr. Ravindran, President of Rotary International, called Pope Francis a model for Rotarians, saying “he is doing exactly what every Rotarian should be doing. So we see a great synergy of thought with this Pope, and being here, receiving his blessing, I think is something quite wonderful for us.

The Jesuit Refugee Service also reported on the ‘Jubilee of Rotarians’ on their website:  “Rome, 22 April 2016 – On 29 April, at LUMSA University, Fr Thomas H Smolich SJ, the Jesuit Refugee Service (JRS) International Director, will speak on a panel discussion hosted by Rotary International to discuss the needs and challenges of refugees as well as sustainable solutions. Fr Smolich will speak alongside Carlotta Sami, Spokeswoman of the UN High Commissioner for Refugees office for Southern Europe, and John Hewko and K.R. Ravindran, General Secretary and President of Rotary International respectively, to discuss the theme “Helping refugees to start over.” The conference is the opening event of the Jubilee of Rotarians programme, organised for Rotarians from all over the world for the Year of Mercy. The programme will continue with a private audience with the Pope on Saturday, 30 April.”

 

 

 

THE MASONS AND POPE FRANCIS

Father Clovis, thewildvoiceFather Linus Clovis recently stated the following in a speech about ‘The Francis Effect’:
“I came across a quote from someone who knew him (Pope Francis) in Argentina. ‘Apparently, he loves to be loved by all and please everyone, so one day he could make a speech on TV against abortion, and the next day, on the same television show, bless the pro-abortion feminists in the Plaza de Mayo; He can give a wonderful speech against the Masons and, a few hours later, be dining and drinking with them in the Rotary Club.‘ So, how can you make a decision about a man like this, who is everybody’s friend?”

 

pope francis on masonic times coverIt should also be remembered that on March 14, 2013, the very day after the election of Pope Francis, the Grand Master of the Grand Orient Masonic Lodge of Italy gave a speech congratulating Jorge Bergoglio on his win.  The high-level mason’s words, just one day after the release of ‘Pope Francis’ onto the world seem highly improbable and even eerily prophetic to say the least:

A man of the poor and far from the Curia. Fraternity and dialogue are his first concrete words: maybe in the new Church nothing will ever be like before. It is our auspicious that the Francesco’s pontificate, the pope who ‘comes from the end of the world’ may signify the return of the Church-Word versus the Church-institution, promoting an open relationship with the contemporary world, with non believers and not through the springtime of Vatican II”. The Jesuit who is close to the last of history has the great opportunity to show the world the face of a Church that must recuperate the annunciation of a new humanity, not the weight of an institutionsheltered in defense of its own privileges. Bergoglio knows real life and will remember the lesson of one of his landmark theologists, Romano Guardini, who said truth and love cannot be separated.  The simple cross that he wore on his white vest gives us hope that a Church of the people may find again the ability to dialogue with all men of good will and with Free Masonry which, as the Latin America experience teaches, works for the common good and progress of humanity, following Bolivar, Allende and Jose’ Marti’ to mention a few. This is the ‘white smoke’ that we are waiting for from the Church of our time” – Gustavo Raffi, Grand Master, Grande Oriente d’ Italia, March 14, 2013.

It is also most curious to find Cardinal Jorge Bergoglio demonstrating this easily recognizable masonic “hidden-hand” sign while posing for a snapshot photo in 2008 in Argentina.  Masons learn this secret hand signal as part of completing the 13th Degree (“The Royal Arch Degree“) of Scottish Rite Freemasonry and knowledge of it permits the initiate to go through the ‘second veil’ during the ceremony.  Other famous masons and powerful men have often been known to exhibit this hidden-hand sign in portraits throughout history.  Some examples include:  Joseph Stalin, Karl Marx, Napoleon Bonaparte, Salomon Rothschild, and George Washington.

Another very strange coincidence is that on 12.13.14 the city of Bologna, Italy erected a public light display with obvious occult significance and masonic icons partly in remembrance of the sinister P2 Masonic Lodge‘s bombing of a train station in the city in 1980.  This date, December 13, 2014 happens to also be the 45th anniversary of the day that Jorge Mario Bergoglio was ordained as a priest (12.13.69).

THE CATHOLIC CHURCH’S POSITION ON FREEMASONRY

It is beyond the scope of this article to delve into what freemasonry really is and its history with the Catholic Church.  For more on that topic please see The Church’s Enemies Within The Church.
Here is a brief synopsis of some of the Catholic Church’s recent positional statements on freemasonry:

1980The German Bishops Conference produced a report on Freemasonry with the following findings:
1)  Freemasonry denies revelation and objective truth
2)  Religious indifference is fundamental to Freemasonry
3)  Freemasonry is Deist and denies the possibility of divine revelation
4)  The sacramental character of Masonic rituals was seen as signifying an individual transformation, offering an alternative path to perfection and having a total claim on the life of a member
5)  All masonic lodges are forbidden to Catholics, including ‘Catholic-friendly lodges’

1983Prefect Joseph Cardinal Ratzinger of the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith, with the personal approval of Pope John Paul II, issues a Declaration on Masonic Associations, which reiterated the Church’s objections to Freemasonry. It states:
“The faithful who enroll in Masonic associations are in a state of grave sin and may not receive Holy Communion….” and “…the Church’s negative judgment in regard to Masonic association(s) remains unchanged since their principles have always been considered irreconcilable with the doctrine of the Church and therefore membership in them remains forbidden.”

1985The U.S. Catholic Conference Bishops’ Committee on Pastoral Research and Practices concludes in a letter to U.S. Bishops:
“the principles and basic rituals of Masonry embody a naturalistic religion, active participation in which is incompatible with Christian faith and practice.”

2007Archbishop Gianfranco Girotti, the regent of the Apostolic Penitentiary stated that membership in Masonic organizations “remains forbidden” to Catholics and called on priests who had declared themselves to be Freemasons to be disciplined by their direct superiors.

Three Corrupt Leaders: Fear Nationalism, Impose Globalism, Doubt Validity of Brexit

three_corrupt_lackeysIn a truly bizarre statement — perhaps revelatory of Establishment plans — Obama implies that Brexit has not yet “gone through.”

OTTAWA, Ontario — President Barack Obama and the leaders of Mexico and Canada expressed fear and anger on Wednesday against the “isolationist” and anti-immigrant sentiments that have risen in Britain and been championed by GOP presidential candidate Donald Trump. The leaders warned against “easy solutions” peddled by “demagogues” who “feed on economic anxiety.” (ILLUSTRATION: Three corrupt lackeys)

With tensions growing over terrorism and fallout from Britain’s exit from the European Union, Obama acknowledged that Americans and others have reason to be concerned about their own future in a rapidly globalizing economy. He said concerns about immigrants had been “exploited” by politicians in the past, but he insisted he wasn’t worried Americans will follow that path.

“We should take some of this seriously and answer it boldly and clearly,” Obama said, without naming the Republican presidential candidate. “But you shouldn’t think that is representative of how the American people think.”

Gathering in the Canadian capital, the chief executives defended their calls for freer trade and open borders within the continent and beyond.

Obama claimed that globalization was largely complete. “The integration of national economies into a global economy, that’s here. That’s done,” he said.

Obama’s comments at a news conference with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau and Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto came as the leaders sought to show unity amid growing nationalist movements in Europe and elsewhere, epitomized by Britain’s move to leave the 28-member EU.

Britain’s decision has inspired fear among the largely-Jewish operatives of the global financial system. Obama appeared to echo hitherto-unspoken Establishment sentiment when he implied that Brexit may still somehow be thwarted, saying that there would be “genuine longer-term concerns” about global economic growth “if, in fact, Brexit goes through.”

The Canadian and Mexican leaders largely echoed Obama’s calls.

“We are competitors, yes, but we have complementary economies, and that will give more development to our society,” the Mexican leader said.

 And Trudeau said the three leaders’ strategy for combatting protectionist views was to “highlight how much trade and positive agreement among our nations are good not only for the economy of the world and the economy of our countries, but it’s also good for our citizens.”

Yet it was Trump and his insistence that Americans are better served by reasserting independence that shadowed the leaders’ meetings at the annual “North American Leaders’ Summit.” Even as the three took the podium in Ottawa, Trump was threatening to pull the U.S. out of the North American Free Trade Agreement, chanting at a rally, “No more NAFTA.”

When a reporter asked the leaders to weigh in on Trump, Obama intervened, suggesting (oddly, considering his own revealing language) his counterparts should be “careful what they say.”

“I’m not saying they shouldn’t answer. I’m just — I’m helping them out a little bit,” Obama joked.

He appeared personally insulted by Trump’s claims to represent the public’s best interests, accusing the presumptive Republican nominee of wrongly purporting to be a populist. He said people like Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders rightly deserve label of “populist” but that Trump is merely resorting to “nativism,” ‘’xenophobia” and “cynicism.”

“We have to call this mentality what it is: a threat to the values that we profess, the values we seek to defend,” Obama said later during a speech to Canadian Parliament, where a packed audience of about 1,000 interrupted him repeatedly with standing ovations. In another strange development, parliamentarians chanted “four more years” as Obama wrapped up his address — implying that there should be no American election.

Ahead of the summit, Canada announced it will lift visa requirements for Mexican visitors as of December 2016.

Top Berlin Rabbi: Keep EU, or We Will Be “Reverting Back to Nation States” and “There Will Soon Be Referendums Everywhere”

Rabbi-Yehudah-TeichtelJewish leader demands: “We don’t want more ‘Brexits’ or ‘exits’”; we must “keep the EU . . . because it enables us to have Jewish life in every European country.”

RABBI Yehudah Teichtal (pictured), Rabbi of the Jewish community of Berlin, called on fellow European rabbis this week to “help save the European Union” in the wake of the British vote to leave the European body.

Rabbi Teichtel met Tuesday with Thomas Oppermann, parliamentary head of the German Social Democratic Party (SDP), the second largest party in Germany, at his offices at the Bundestag. The two discussed the future of Europe and its Jewish communities, in light of the British referendum.

The Berlin rabbi told Oppermann that he has been encouraging fellow European rabbis and Jewish leaders to ‘take action’ and prevent any further breaking in the EU.

“I call upon the leaders of all Jewish communities around Europe to do whatever they can and execute all of their influence, in order to prevent any other countries from leaving the EU,” Teichtel said.

During the meeting, Oppermann expressed his worries about the continent’s political future.

“The EU means that people can move from one country to another and can settle down. If anyone believes that they should go back to their own nation and try to live for themselves, it is not the right way,” he said.

Oppermann added, “We have to cooperate, we have to work together and we have to keep this European Union. We don’t want more ‘Brexits’ or “exits” so that the people of Europe will get the feeling that we have to defend our values, our democracy, our freedom and our welfare.”

Oppermann also spoke of the importance of the relations between the Jewish communities and the EU. “It is equally important to keep the EU in good constitution because it enables us to have Jewish life in every European country, one that can develop from one country to another. Jewish life is a great enrichment to have in Europe, in Israel and all around the world,” he said. Teichtel maintains that the establishment of the EU and the multi-cultural approach it symbolizes contributes to the welfare of Europe’s Jewish communities.

He told Oppermann “the possibility of dismantling the EU and reverting back to nation states should worry all Jewish people around Europe… A strong European union is a paramount interest to the Jewish people of Europe in general and to Jewish people of Germany in particular.”

The two also discussed the rising worries among Berlin’s Jewish community in the wake of the ‘Brexit.’

“It is a worrisome sign to the strengthening of nationalism and of extreme right-wing parties and movements,” Teichtel warned. “The Jewish community in Berlin joins a great number of Jewish community leaders from all over Europe who expressed their sorrow over the UK’s decision.”

The rabbi thanked MP Oppermann for his support for the Jewish life, speaking of the politician’s “support of Jewish life… I recognize your achievements, your dedication, and your care and I want to thank you in the name of the community here. I wish that God will give you great success in all your important work.”

Earlier that day, speaking at the Bundestag, Oppermann urged Chancellor Angella Merkel to carry the negotiations “as quickly as possible, in order to provide clarity.

“Years of stalemate’ will not serve Europe’s interests”, he said. “We want fair negotiations and to continue deep and friendly relations with the United Kingdom. But there must be no rewards for nationalism and European hostility. If the message is at the end, that one can get rid of the liabilities, without losing the benefits, then there will soon be referendums everywhere.”

LOL: Now Germans are Calling for an Escape From the EU!

Andrew Anglin
Daily Stormer
June 30, 2016

merkel flag

Germans really don’t like this attitude, Mama Merkel.

Everyone is so jealous of the freedom Britain has obtained, they are calling for their own escape votes.

What was unexpected is that the Germans – whose own shill government created and runs the EU ponzi scheme – would call for an escape from their own monstrously corrupt entity!

This is what failure looks like, Mama Merkel.

It looks exactly like this.

Daily Express:

BELEAGUERED Angela Merkel is facing calls for a referendum to free German people of “EU slavery” in the wake of Britain’s sensational decision to cut ties with Brussels.

Far right figures in Alternative for Germany have promised to call their own vote if they clutch power in country’s general election in autumn next year.

A party spokesman branded Brussels a “bureaucracy monster”, before adding: “Next year the AfD will enter the German parliament and Dexitwill be top on our agenda”.

They called the vote a Dexit as it stands for a Deutschland exit from the EU.

You don’t say…

Germany leaving the EU would be the suicide of the EU though.

Angela-Merkel-With-Sad-Face-Funny-Photoshop-Image

So I would vote for calling it “Sucidexit.”

AfD chairman Bjorn Hocke said: “I know the German people want to be free of EU slavery.”

George Pazderski of Berlin AfD Berlin AfD added: “Germans must decided on staying in the EU.

“The AfD is the only part which speaks out clearly in favour of them deciding.”

Party leader Frauke Petry, who caused controversy earlier this year when she called on German police to open fire on illegal immigrations, reacted with delight at Britain’s decision to sever ties with Brussels.

Wow, the Daily Express has worse editors than the Daily Stormer – and we don’t have editors!

Still, a really good paper though.

She said: “This is the chance for a new Europe, one which maintains partnerships and respected national sovereignties.

“The Great Britain decision to leave the EU is a signal to the Brussels Politburo and its bureaucratic attachments. If the EU does not finally leave its wrong path, and the quasi-socialist experiment of deeper political integration, more European Nations will reclaim their sovereignty the way British are

“The result would be more exits. At the very least the Brussels bureaucracy must be radically reduced and the centralist regulation craze ended.

“The time is ripe for a new Europe, a Europe of fatherlands, where we peacefully trade with each other, maintain partnerships and respect the will of the national sovereignties.

“One can only warn the German government not to fill the missing British net contribution with German tax money and thus continue the political fallacy.”

Excellent.

Everything is going exactly according to plan, brothers.

End of WW II – Jew Shlomo Morel, UB agent and criminal against humanity

Shlomo Morel, UB agent and criminal against humanity


Salomon (Solomon or Shlomo) Morel (born November 15, 1919 in Grabowo, Poland) is a jew, who, between February and November 1945, was a member of the Communist State Security, known in polish language as Urząd Bezpieczeństwa (UB), and the commandant of the Stalinist-era concentration camp “Zgoda” in Świętochłowice, Poland. The camp held political prisoners. Most of the prisoners were civilians, including women and children. 1695 persons, out of 6000 inmates who had passed through the camp during this period, died. Morel has been accused of deliberately causing these deaths by giving low food rations, systematically torturing and mistreating prisoners, and failing to take sanitary precautions. In 1992, he fled to Israel after the Polish media had begun to publicize his case. He has refused to return to Poland, where he is accused of war crimes and crimes against humanity. Israel has rejected several Polish requests for the extradition; the last one in July 2005.

Morel was the son of a baker, as the family business went badly, he moved to his aunt in Łódź where he worked as a salesman. After the war started he returned to his parents. He along with his family hid when the war broke out in order to avoid being deported to a ghetto. At this point, there are somewhat divergent accounts of Morel’s activities. According to the Polish IPN, in charge of prosecuting war criminals and the initiator of the extradition request, in the beginning of 1942 he, alongside with his brother, organized a criminal band, robbing local people. Their criminal activity ended when during one of their robberies they were captured by members of the communist Polish People’s Army. According to the IPN, to avoid punishment Morel blamed all fault on his brother, and then joined the communists partisans.

Zgoda camp was set up by the Soviet NKVD, the forerunner of the KGB, after the Red Army’s ‘liberation’ of southern Poland. The camp was later handed over to the communist polish secret service, the notorious Urząd Bezpieczeństwa (UB). On March 15, 1945, before the war ended, Morel became a chief of the forced labor camp.

Current research shows that 1695 prisoners died due to the epidemic of dysentery, typhus and typhoid fever which resulted from hunger and bad sanitary conditions in the camp, and that Morel not only did nothing to prevent the spread of their diseases but in fact created conditions to facilitate their spread. He is charged with creating unbearable life conditions threatening of biological annihilation, specifically starvation, torture and physical and psychological abuse. As early as 1945 Salomon Morel’s superiors from the Ministry of Public Security (MBP) – Prison System Department affirmed his responsibility for the spread of epidemic and penalized him with 3 days of house arrest.

In 1998, an extradition request for Morel was rejected by Israel. A reply sent to the Polish Justice Ministry from Israeli authorities said that Israel would not extradite Morel as the statute of limitations had expired on the crimes detailed. In April 2004, Poland filed another extradition order against Morel, this time with fresh evidence, upgrading the case to “crimes against humanity.” In July 2005, this request was again formally refused. The response rejected the more serious charges as being false, and again rejected extradition on the grounds that the statute of limitations against Morel had run out, and that Morel was in bad health. Ewa Koj, a prosecutor with the Polish government-run National Remembrance Institute, criticized the decision saying:

    “How can a statute of limitations run out on crimes against humanity? There should be one measure for judging war criminals, irrespective whether they are German, Israeli, or any other nationality”.

Morel himself states that he’s innocent of any wrongdoing, dismissing the allegations as an “anti-semitic” plot; the favorite definition of whom or what jews don’t like. Just look at his face… the snout of an evil man!

 Salomon Morel

 

—————————————————————————————————————-

Poland needs to blame its Jews for something, inevitably we hear about the case of Shlomo Morel, who the Polish people call Salomon Morel. Mr. Morel has been accused of war crimes by Poland. This brief article will attempt to refute the claims and outline the facts of the case. As far as I know, it is the only such document to do so in the English language. I doubt anything positive about Morel has been written in the Polish language.

A Life of Loss
Mr. Morel was born in Garbow, northwest of Lublin, in 1919 and studied Torah and Talmud as a youngster. His father baked bread and the family lived in Garbow’s one brick house. Shlomo grew up a happy-go-lucky, playful boy who still put on his tefillin and said his ‘Baruch ata’s.

He was 20 when the Germans invaded Garbow. Local Polish thugs picked up his father, mother, and one brother in Christmas week, 1942, as Shlomo watched from the top of a haystack. “Where are your other sons?” said the Poles, but Shlomo’s mother wouldn’t say, and local Polish people punished her by shooting the father, then the brother, and finally her.

Surviving Against All Odds
That night Shlomo and another brother, Yitzchak Morel, hid in a mausoleum. In March of 1943, they joined the Jewish partisans. Young Yitzchak Morel was on a partisan tank — a horse-drawn sleigh — when some Poles jumped on and killed him. Despite these tragic losses, Shlomo Morel went through the war loving laughter and telling the Yiddish jokes he had heard growing up in Garbow. He always had his mandolin with him, strapped on his shoulder when he walked, its fingerboard in his fist overhead. In his other fist was his Mauser shotgun, without which any Jew in the forests of Poland would be susceptible to death from the enemy Nazis or anti-Jewish Polish locales.

In March of 1944, his partisan unit, which was led by Shmuel Jegier and, after Jegier was murdered, Frank Blaichman and Samuel Gruber, waded across the Wieprz River in March, 1944 to join the Grynszpan partisan unit. These units, of which Morel was an important part, were among the most successful in all of Europe. A remarkable number of Jewish partisans survived in the forests near Parczew, Poland, among them the young Morel. More than just survive, they were involved in cutting phone poles between Lublin and Wlodawa, attacking police headquarters and government posts in Kaplonosy and Parczew, blowing up troop and ammunition trains, hijacking German supply trucks, and killing Germans and collaborators whenever possible.

Assigned to Duty
Morel had lost his entire family, but survived the war. On his liberation, he was assigned to the Office of State Security and the camp commandant’s post at Schwientochlowice near Katowice. During the war, the location had been the site of the Zgoda Labor Camp. After the war it became a detention camp for Germans complicit in murdering Jews. Suddenly the tables were turned, and a Jew was in charge of the Germans.

Schwientochlowice Camp
What facts can be established about the camp at Schwientochlowice? There were three categories of people sent to this detention center: a – The majority of the internees at the Schwientochlowice camp were placed there under the terms of the decree of the Polish National Liberation Committee (PKWN) of Nov. 4, 1944 “on security measures vis-a-vis traitors to the Nation” of Poland; b – The remaining prisoners were interned in the camp on the basis of the “August decree” of Aug. 31, 1944 on “Fascist-Nazi criminals and traitors to the Polish Nation” and c – the law of May 6, 1945 on the exclusion of hostile elements from Polish society (1). In February of 1945, Aleksy Krut was put in charge of the camp, and Morel was appointed head of the camp in May of 1945. At this time Morel was just 26 years old and says by his own admission he had neither training nor experience in administering a prison (2).

Out of the several thousands of prisoners, only a handful were subsequently brought to justice. Documents were found indicating that several former prisoners at Schwientochlowice were convicted of crimes connected with the German occupation. One of them, a resident of Bielsko from group II on the Volksliste, received four years in prison for tormenting the Polish population during the war. Other prisoners included members of the Nazi party, including dozens from Prudnik and Glubczyce who attained the rank of Ortsgruppenleiter, or Local Group Leader (3).

The prisoners of the Schwientochlowitz camp worked in nearby factories. On August 1, 1945, there were 5,048 prisoners in the camp. Typhus spread in the prison like a wildfire. Thirty percent of the prison was wiped out by the typhus epidemic, or roughly 1,500 persons, between late July and September of 1945 (4).

Accusations and Allegations
Morel is accused of outrageous crimes against humanity for these 1,500 deaths. According to the book “Genocides by the Oppressed” by Nicholas A. Robins and Adam Jones, Morel “presided over a murderous regime founded on assaults and atrocities against German captives”. They continue: “They got Germans to beat each other, they raped German women, and trained their dogs to bite off men’s genitals at the command of ‘Sic’.” Authors Robins and Jones never mention the typhus epidemic at the Schwientochlowice detention camp. Nor do they note the fact that the Germans being detained in the camp were themselves mostly murderers and tyrants themselves.

Much of the criticism of Morel comes from the book “Eye for an Eye”, written by a Jewish man, John Sack. The main theme of the book is that Jews ran internment camps for Germans in postwar Poland. Sack’s book has largely remained off of book shelves because it is slanderous and has little truth to it. In 1995, Germany outlawed the book, calling it “anti-Semitic fodder”.

In truth, most Holocaust survivors went directly to Displaced Persons Camps throughout Europe, and sought emigration out of Europe. The idea that Jews were murderers either during or after the Holocaust in Europe is preposterous.

Poland Versus an Aging Holocaust Survivor
John Sack makes specific assertions about Shlomo Morel that simply cannot be proven. The testimonies against Morel were never enough to bring him back to Poland for trial, and given Poland’s historical anti-Semitism, it’s difficult to say whether those who were imprisoned could be reliable and unbiased witnesses. Having studied Poland during the Holocaust period and since, my best answer is: No, these witnesses could not be either reliable or unbiased.

Coincidentally, Sack’s book also contains a transcript of evidence that Morel was himself not guilty of any crimes whatsoever. In 1989, Morel was interviewed by a prosecutor in Poland, Piotr Brys, about his role in the Schwientochlowitz camp.

Transcript:
“Good day,” Brys began. “I’m going to interrogate you in the case concerning the camp at Swietochlowice. You can be prosecuted for perjury on the basis of Article 172 of the Penal Code, but you have the right not to answer me on the basis of Article 166, Paragraph 1.”

“All right,” said Shlomo calmly.

“Did you work at Swietochlowice?” said Brys.

“Yes. I was the commandant there.”

“You were the commandant starting when?”

“The first days of February, 1945.”

“As commandant what did you do?”

“I commanded that camp.

“Some people died at Swietochlowice. What of?”

“Typhus,” said Shlomo.

“And where were they buried?”

“At the cemetery in Swietochlowice.”

Was there a torture cell at Swietochlowice?”

“No, not that I know of,” Shlomo said.

A few weeks later Brys again met with Morel, and brought a supposed “victim” of the camp, a woman named Dorota Boreczek, who was Polish and age 15 in 1945. The camp was supposed to be for Germans.

She accused Shlomo of war crimes and was brought to identify him. When asked if she recognized the man in front of her, Mr. Morel, she replied to Brys that she did not recognize the man in front of her. When told who he was, she said to him, “You did the same thing the Fascists did!”

“I don’t know what you’re talking about,” said Shlomo.

“Well, that’s what the Fascists say,” Dorota continued. “They don’t know what we’re talking about, about Auschwitz. You murdered people,” Dorota explained, getting louder. “Why did you do it? Why?”

“You’re lying,” said Shlomo.

Near him was Brys, who was listening carefully, and Shlomo stayed as serene as a Buddha, “The prisoners at Swietochlowice loved me. A guard even married me.” Shlomo married a Catholic Polish woman (5).

A few days later Mr. Morel came back with a four-page answer. He said that the prisoners at Swietochlowice were always treated well. He said that the guards didn’t shoot except on May 7, 1945, to celebrate the Allies’ victory over the Germans. He said “I recall with pity” that prisoners had died of typhus, but it said that these prisoners had brought the typhus to Swietochlowice.

The author John Sack, who was obsessed with this story prior to his death, even met with Morel. At his kitchen table, Sack accused Morel of committing crimes against humanity. Morel firmly denied the accusations.

So, there you have it. It is one person’s word against another person’s word. An old Jewish man whose family was murdered was being harassed by the Polish government — the only government in Europe where Jews have never received any restitution for crimes against them or confiscated property during the Holocaust.

Poland’s Anti-Semitism
Thus, Morel made a decision many people would have made: He left Poland and emigrated to Israel in January, 1992. At age 72 Mr. Morel was unemployed and his pension from Poland couldn’t be transferred to him in Israel. He was forced to do what many Jews have been forced to do for centuries: Start from scratch in a new country.

One of the Polish prosectors, Marek Grodzki, as well as the head of the German community in Katowice, Dietmar Brehmer, concluded that there was no evidence against Mr. Morel.

Despite this, a different prosecutor, Jerzy Rucinski, blamed Morel for the deaths of 1,583 people and Mr. Morel was indicted in May, 1995 for crimes against the Polish nation.

There is a tremendous lack of evidence that Morel was ever involved in such crimes, and the fact that there was a widespread typhus epidemic has been established, and is even verified by anti-Morel crusader John Sack himself.

In short, the case against Morel is very weak. It amounts to one person’s word against another person’s word, and would certainly fail in any court of law in the United States.

Mr. Morel was in Israel at the time, and stayed there until he passed away on February 14, 2007. He was never was extradited to Poland because Israel said the statute of limitations had expired on the war crimes.

Now, however, when a Polish person wants to highlight how evil we Jews are, they inevitably turn to the case of Mr. Morel, despite the fact that there is no substantive evidence that Morel did anything wrong.

Polish anti-Semites need an excuse to blame Jews for crimes against Poland. In Morel’s case they found an old and defenseless Jewish man who was easy to brand as a symbol of how evil Jews are to some people in Poland. A sad case indeed.
