The Jewish banking family, the Rothschilds: What’s the Real Story About the Armenian Genocide?

What’s the Real Story About the Armenian Genocide?

by David Sims

FEW PEOPLE understand the true reason the Armenian Genocide happened. The most common (and mistaken) belief is that the motivation was Turkish nationalism. The promulgation of that incorrect view is largely the work of the Jews, upon whose ethnic relations most of the blame really does fall. (ILLUSTRATION: Emmanuel Curasso)

Because the Armenian Genocide was prompted, not by Turkish nationalism, but by the financial interests of a Jewish banking family, the Rothschilds. Although Turkish nationalism made it easier for the Rothschilds to manipulate the situation, and whereas a certain amount of ethnic strife preceded 1915, it was the meddling of these Jewish bankers that caused the genocide itself.

The Rothschilds owned (since 1884) the Caspian and Black Sea Petroleum Company, which extracted oil from fields near Baku, in Azerbaijan, and shipped it over the Caucasus by rail to Batumi in FSR Georgia, thence by sea via the Dardanelles to their refinery in Fiume (a port city now called Rijeka, in Croatia) on the Adriatic. The products, including kerosene, were then sold throughout central Europe in competition with similar products sold by the Rockefeller-owned Standard Oil company. The Rothschilds wanted to eliminate ethnic conflict along the trade route, and since the Armenians were the weakest party in those conflicts, the cheapest way for the Rothschilds to get what they wanted was to eliminate the Armenians.

There is a photograph taken by a German officer in 1915 showing a row of young women who had been hanged upon crosses in mockery of the Crucifixion of Jesus because they had refused to convert to Islam. Many of the Young Turks’ “infantry” were, indeed, Muslims. But Jews were directing the campaign.

In conventional history, subject matter that is considered by the Jews to be sensitive may be presented in a way that is either almost accurate but nowhere near complete, or else it is reasonably complete but nowhere near accurate. Or it might be neither complete nor accurate, but rather an intentionally deceptive fabrication.

It is so with the common account of the instigators of the Armenian Genocide: the “Young Turks.” What the historical narratives commonly omit is that the Young Turks were founded by a Jew who grew up in Italy, Emmanuel Curasso. Curasso set up the Young Turks as a secret society in the 1890s, beginning in Salonika, Macedonia. Most of the Young Turks, and virtually all of their leadership, were Jews.

This isn’t really uncommon. The Jews have learned many tricks of political deception. They will go so far as to set up their own opposition, and, attributing its membership to other ethnicities — e.g. Muslims, Christians, racists — will later condemn these other groups for deeds that they, themselves, committed. Most of the time, the corrupted version of history goes into the school textbooks unchallenged (for a trivial example, see https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aF5UfnhuF_c ).

Assisting the Rothschilds wasn’t the Young Turks’ only purpose. They also wanted to undermine Sultan Mehmed in order to facilitate the theft of Palestine by Zionist Jews.

Many of the Jews among the Young Turks adopted noms de guerre. For example, the real name of the Young Turk writer known as “Tekin Alp” was Moishe Cohen. Also, the editor-in-chief of the Young Turks’ main newspaper, The Young Turk, was Vladimir Ze’ev Jabotinsky, a Zionist Jew who worked as a journalist in Italy during the 1890s and lived in Odessa prior to the Armenian Genocide.

So, really, the blame for the deaths of 1.5 million Christian Armenians doesn’t belong to any sort of nationalism. It belongs to greedy Jews who wanted their oil business to enjoy increased profits.

We read in “The Armenian & Jewish Genocide Project: Eliminating Ethnic Conflict Along the Oil Route From Baku to the Suez Canal Region” by Clifford Shack:

Considering this brief history at the dawn of the new Oil Age, a question presents itself to the inquisitive and demanding student. To an all-powerful banking family like the Rothschilds, whose vast wealth bankrolled many a war, causing millions of fatalities… was the removal of a small minority like the Armenians a fair price to pay for the peace in a region so crucial to the development and investment of the Far East, which contained countless millions, later billions of consumers? Squeamish the Rothschilds were not, their line of work requires pragmatism to rule their day.

It would be fair to say that the genocide of a group of a million or so, to serve the benefit of a billion or so, is less of a question of should it be done, than how it could be done. So as not to reveal any plausible motive which could link the actual planners to the genocide, the scheme involved a proxy party, which was manipulated through layers of influence, providing sufficient cover for the planners.

The mere elimination of the Armenian population of Baku would not solve the problem of ethnic conflict in that region. The surrounding areas would provide reservoir effect in resupplying the conflicting minority element. [It is here interesting to note that there is no malice on the part of big business in their decision to erase a population. It is simply easier to erase a million than tens or hundreds of millions of the surrounding Moslem population.]

There is some exculpatory verbiage in Shack’s text.

“…was the removal of a small minority like the Armenians a fair price to pay for the peace in a region so crucial to the development and investment of the Far East, which contained countless millions, later billions of consumers? … It would be fair to say that the genocide of a group of a million or so, to serve the benefit of a billion or so, is less of a question of should it be done, than how it could be done.”

That’s misleading. Possibly Clifford Shack is confused here. Corporations in general, and most definitely the Rothschilds in particular, do not exist to serve mankind, nor even their customers. They exist to make a profit, to convey wealth to their owners, their shareholders.

The Rothschilds didn’t have any “greater good of mankind” motives when they began plotting the murder of the Armenians. They had their own advancement, the increase of their own wealth and power, as their incentive.

Jews Plotted The Armenian Holocaust

Turkey/Zionist Articles, History Articles, Turkey’s Choice: Russia Or NATO?, Jewish Young Turks Were Murderers!, Jews Plotted The Armenian Holocaust

JEWS PLOTTED THE ARMENIAN HOLOCAUST
By Brother Nathanael Kapner, Copyright 2007-2010

 


BUSINESS AS USUAL is a powerful motivating force especially when Jews like the Rothschilds are running an oil business.

Banking is the forte of the Jewish House of Rothschild. But raw materials–especially oil–are money in the bank.

The Young Turk movement, AKA Committee of Union and Progress, arose out of the Rothschilds’ oil interests in the Black Sea area of the Ottoman Empire in the late 1800s. ‘Creating stability’ in an incendiary realm was necessary for the Rothschilds’ new oil enterprise Baku Oil. The instability of the Armenian Christians’ financial and intellectual prominence in the area was not “good for business.”

Thus hand-picked Jews of Salonika, (Jews made up the majority of the city’s population), and foreign agitators such as the Russian Zionist, Vladimir Jabotinksy, the editor of The Young Turk newspaper, were just what the Rothschilds needed for ridding the source of that instability, the Armenian Christians.

Now, the Zionist Young Turks who sought for the break up of the Ottoman Empire in order to obtain Palestine–and the House of Rothschild, who needed a Jewish-controlled Turkey and hegemony over the entire Middle East, could work together. This meant funding for the Jewish Young Turks and revolutionary subversives for the Rothschilds.

HISTORICAL BACKGROUND OF THE JEWISH YOUNG TURKS1680: Sabbatai Zvi, a Turkish Jew, proclaims himself to be the Jewish Messiah in Salonica. After amassing a following of thousands of Jews – he led them on a Zionist exodus to Palestine. On the way he decided to become a Muslim. Many of his followers saw this as God’s plan and also became Muslims.

1716: A group called the “Donmeh” forms in Salonica of Sabbatai Zvi’s followers headed by Sabbatai Zvi’s successor, Baruchya Russo. By the early 1900’s, the Donmeh numbers in the hundreds of thousands. They were known as “Crypto Jews” because though outwardly appearing to be Muslims, they were still Jews following the customs of the Jewish occult Kabbala which Sabbatai Zvi taught. They continue in their fervent, (yet secret), Zionist vision.

1860: Jewish Hungarian Zionist named Arminius Vambery becomes an advisor to the Sultan Abdül Mecit while secretly working as an agent for Lord Palmerston of the British Foreign Office. Vambery tries to broker a deal between the Zionist leader Theodore Herzl and Sultan Abdul Mecit over the creation of Israel but fails.

1891: Out of the Donmeh a Zionist political group forms called The Committee of Union and Progress, later called The Young Turks. The group is headed by a Freemason Jew by the name of Emmanuel Carraso who organizes the secret Committee of Union and Progress in Geneva with the help of the Rothschilds.

1895-1896: Sephardic Jews of Salonika together with the Turks massacre Armenian Christians in Istanbul.

1902 & 1907: Two Congresses of The Young Turks meet in Paris to plan, prepare, and effect the penetration the Sultan’s army leading to the military coup of 1908.

1908: The Jewish Young Turks revolt and force the Sultan Abdul Hamid II into submission.

1909: The Jewish Young Turks rape, torture, and slaughter over 100,000 Armenians in the city of Adana, also known as Cilicia.

1914: The Jews of The Young Turks create unrest, turmoil, and bolster the paid Serbian assassin, Gavrilo Princip, which leads to World War I.

1915: The Armenian Holocaust engineered by the ruling Jews of The Young Turks, leaves 1.5 million Armenian Christians starved, tortured, and murdered.

1918: Jew Mustafa Kemal ‘Ataturk’ ascends into leadership.

1920: Russian Jewish Bolsheviks supply Ataturk iwth 10 million gold roubles, 45,000 rifles, and 300 machine guns with ammunition.

1921: Ataturk occupies the Port of Baku in conjunction with the Russian Jewish Bolsheviks ceding it to the Bolsheviks five days later. The Rothschilds are delighted.

1922: Jewish Kemalists orchestrate the burning of Smyrna resulting in the ‘ethnic cleansing’ of over 100,000 Armenian and Greek Christians left tortured, starved, raped, and dead.

THE BRITISH AMBASSADOR TO THE OTTOMAN EMPIRE SIR GERALD LOWTHER’S LETTER TO SIR CHARLES HARDING, May 29, 1910— “Shortly after the revolution in July 1908, it soon became known that many of the Young Turks’ leading members were Freemasons. It was noticed that Jews of all colours, native and foreign, were enthusiastic supporters of the new dispensation, till, as many Turks expressed it, every Hebrew became a potential spy of the Young Turks. Turks began to remark that the movement was rather a Jewish than a Turkish Revolution.” —

JEW ABE FOXMAN OF THE ADL DENIES THE ARMENIAN HOLOCAUSTFor many years, the Anti Defamation League and now its director, Abraham Foxman, refuse to acknowledge that the massacres of 1.5 million Armenians between 1915 and 1923 constituted genocide. Jews simply can’t stand to share their so-called “martyred-race” status with anyone else. And besides, Jews don’t like to have their crimes pointed out to them. If one does, he is instantly labeled an “Anti Semite!”

Foxman has reiterated the ADL’s opposition to formal U.S. recognition of the Armenian Holocaust calling a proposed Congressional resolution “a counterproductive diversion.” This position is inconsistent with the ADL’s mission statement “to secure justice and fair treatment to all citizens alike.”

But the Jew Abe Foxman and his racist ADL organization do not care about any other ethnic group but their own. And they will lie and suppress the historical facts (and all historical facts that incriminate the Jews) of the Armenian Holocaust and the role that the Jews played in it. Foxman and all Jews do this in order to perpetuate their image as “innocent victims.”

WE CANNOT ALLOW THE JEWS to get away with their suppression of historical facts that incriminate the Jews any longer. Abe Foxman and his racist Jewish friends love to see Revisionist Historians thrown in jail for questioning particulars of the Jewish Holocaust in Germany.

But it is Foxman and the rest of the Jewish censors who should be thrown in jail for denying the Armenian Holocaust! Why do Jews abide by a double standard constantly? Aren’t we all sick of it and all these Jews for that matter by now?

I, for one, Brother Nathanael Kapner, a former Jew and now an Orthodox Christian, will do all in my power to expose the Jews. For the Jews are *not* innocent victims of persecution against them but have *prompted* backlashes against them throughout their “wandering-among-the-nations” history.

The Jews in fact are the most fierce perpetrators of racist crimes the world has ever known. And the Armenian Holocaust of which the Jews are responsible is a clear example of their Jewish racist crimes.

Gunaysu: The Jews of Turkey and the Armenian Genocide

avatar
About Ayse Gunaysu(34 Articles)
Ayse Gunaysu is a professional translator, human rights advocate, and feminist. She has been a member of the Committee Against Racism and Discrimination of the Human Rights Association of Turkey (Istanbul branch) since 1995, and is a columnist for Ozgur Gundem. Since 2008, she writes a column titled “Letters from Istanbul,” for the Armenian Weekly.

A groundbreaking book by independent scholar and historian Rifat Bali was published recently in Turkey, unearthing facts and first-hand accounts that unmistakably illustrate how the Turkish establishment blackmailed the leaders of the Jewish community—and through them Jewish organizations in the United States—to secure their support of the Turkish position against the Armenians’ campaign for genocide recognition. The title of the book, Devlet’in Ornek Yurttaslari –Cumhuriyet Yıllarında Türkiye Yahudileri 1950-2003, can be roughly translated into English as “The Model Citizens of the State–Jews of Turkey in the Republican Period 1950-2003.” (I will refer to the book as “The Model Citizens” in this article.)

The book is a product of the meticulous work Bali carried out for many years at around 15 archives worldwide, including the American Jewish Archives (Cincinatti, Ohio), B’nai B’rith International Archives (Washington, D.C.), National Archives and Records Administration (Maryland), Israeli National Archives (Jerusalem), Central Zionist Archives (Jerusalem), Turkish State Archives (Ankara), public archives in Tel Aviv, private archives (like that of Manajans Thomspson A.S., an advertising agency based in Istanbul), and his personal archives. He also researched hundreds of books, dissertations, and articles in Turkish and other languages, and interviewed numerous individuals.

“The Model Citizens” is in fact the complementary volume of Bir Turklestirme Seruveni–Cumhuriyet Yıllarında Türkiye Yahudileri, 1923-1945 (A Story of Turkification–Jews of Turkey in the Republican Period 1923-1945), a reference book Bali published in 1999 that reveals the true picture of the relations of domination between the ruling elite and non-Muslims in general (and Jews, in particular) after the founding of the Turkish Republic.

Rifat Bali’s books are the richest sources of information for anyone looking to study the history of the non-Muslims in Turkey during the republican period. These books differ from others by their sheer wealth of archival references, details from daily life, and insights into the political, social, and cultural background. They are the result of arduous and untiring work carried out in both the public and private archives, in addition to a very detailed scanning of the daily press—which, apparent in both volumes of the history of the Jews of Turkey, significantly sheds light on how the “establishment” in Turkey, an organic system covering not only the state apparatus but also the representatives of the “civil society” from business organizations to the press, operated as a whole to treat the non-Muslims in Turkey as hostages and not as equal citizens. Although the history of the minorities in Turkey has become a topic of interest among the dissenting academia and a limited circle of intellectuals (especially after the turn of the millennium simultaneously with Turkey’s prospective membership to the European Union), as far as I can see, none of the works in this field is supported by such a comprehensive press scan, which includes cartoons in addition to news items and articles.

Turkish Jews lobbying against the Armenian Genocide

In his 670-page book, Rifat Bali gives a detailed account of the Turkish government’s efforts to mobilize its Jewish subjects to win the support of the Jewish lobby in the United States against the Armenian campaigners. At the same time, Bali shows, how the Turkish authorities played the Israeli government against U.S. policymakers for the same purpose, by making use of its strategic position in the Middle East, at times promising rewards (i.e., raising the level of diplomatic relations with Israel), at times overtly or covertly making threats (i.e., cutting off Israel’s vital military logistical resources by hindering the use of U.S. bases in Turkey).

The book also offers rich material about how Turkish diplomats and semi-official spokesmen of Turkish policies, while carrying out their lobbying activities, threatened both Israel and the U.S. by indicating that if the Jewish lobby failed to prevent Armenian initiatives abroad—Turkey might not be able to guarantee the security of Turkish Jews. Such Armenian initiatives included the screening of an Armenian Genocide documentary by an Israeli TV channel in 1978 and 1990; Armenian participation in an international conference in Israel in 1982; Armenian genocide bills up for discussion in the U.S. House of Representatives, and so on. It has been a routine practice for Turkish authorities to invariably deny such threats. However, Bali’s industrious work in the archives reveals first-hand accounts that confirm these allegations.

But this is not all. Rifat Bali throughout his book unfolds the entire socio-political setting  of the process of making the Jewish community leaders active supporters of Turkish governments’ struggle against the “Armenian claims” in the international arena.

Now let us look at this background. From what Bali brings to our attention, we can see that there has always been a frantic, extremely vulgar anti-Semitism freely expressed by Islamic fundamentalists and racists, and openly tolerated by the government and judiciary. Such anti-Semitism—escalating at times with the rising tension between Israel and the Muslim countries of the Middle East—often went as far as warmly praising Hitler for doing the right thing and exterminating the Jews; declaring Jews the enemies of the entire human race; listing characteristics attributed to Jews as the worst that can be found in human beings; in one instance, putting up advertisements on walls in Jewish-populated neighborhoods in Istanbul; and in another case, sending letters to prominent members of the Jewish community threatening that if they didn’t “get the hell out of Turkey” within one month, no one would be responsible for what happened to them.

Whenever Jewish community leaders have approached the authorities for a determined stance against such open anti-Semitism, the answer has been the same: These are marginal voices that have no significant effect on the general public; and there is freedom of expression in Turkey.

The eternal indebtedness of Jews to Turks

An important fact about such violent anti-Semitism is that it goes hand in hand with the widespread official and public conception of the Jews as guests who are indebted to their hosts; it is a debt that cannot be paid no matter how hard the debtors tried. This view isn’t only shared by extremist elements in Turkey, but by the entire society—from the elites to the average person. It is a conviction purposefully designed and maintained by the establishment. And it enables the perpetual, unending, and unrestricted generation and regeneration of the relations of domination in Turkey between the establishment and non-Muslims in general, and Jews in particular, manifested in the treatment of the latter as hostages.

There are regular manifestations of this relationship. The most unbearable is the shameless, extremely offensive repetition by both top-ranking government officials and the mainstream media of how Turkey generously offered shelter to the Jews in 1492, when they were expelled from Spain, and how the Turkish people have always been so “kind” to treat the Jews with “tolerance” throughout history. This theme is repeated on every occasion but is voiced more loudly and more authoritatively whenever pressure on Turkey regarding the Armenian Genocide increases abroad. Another theme has been the obligation of the Jews to show material evidence of their gratitude to Turkey on account of the latter’s welcoming of German Jewish scientists right after the Nazis’ ascension to power. (Readers of Bali’s first volume instantly will remember how Turkey declined thousands of asylum requests by German Jews; how 600 Czeckoslavakian Jews on board the vessel “Parita” were turned down; and how 768 passengers on the Romanian vessel “Struma,” after being kept waiting off Istanbul for weeks in poverty and hunger, were sent to death in the Black Sea by Turkish authorities, with only one survivor in the winter of 1942.)

An illustrative example is the story of the fury that broke out in Turkey in 1987 when the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum Council in Washington, D.C. decided to include the Armenian Genocide—as the first genocide of the 20th century— in the Memorial Museum that was going to be built.
The mainstream media, and not only the ultra-nationalist extremists, started a campaign that would last for years. Melih Asik from Milliyet (which has always positioned itself as a liberal and democratic newspaper), in his article on Dec. 20, 1987, accused “Jews” for being “ungrateful.” After observing the regular ritual of reminding the Jews of the Turks’ generosity in 1492 and during World War II, he wrote: “We treated them with utmost kindness for many years and now these same Jews are preparing to present us to the world in the Holocaust museum as genociders. Before everything else this behavior should be exhibited in the museum of ‘historical displays of ingratitude and disgrace.’”

Melih Asik, as can be seen, is so confident that his readers would not question the use of the words “these same Jews,” nor ridicule the identification of those Jews who sought shelter in the Ottoman Empire in 1492 with those sitting in the Holocaust Memorial Museum Council in 1987. He is that confident because he knows that such identification and essentialization is a regular, daily pattern internalized by the readers of the Turkish press.

Another very liberal and democrat anchorman of Turkey, Mehmet Ali Birand, known as a taboo breaker in recent years, joined—and even surpassed—Asik in his Dec. 29, 1987 article that appeared in Milliyet. In it, he publicly called on the Jews of Turkey to fulfill their “duty of gratitude” and do their best to prevent the Armenians from including the Armenian Genocide in the museum. He added: “Isn’t it our right to expect [such a display of gratitude] from every Turkish citizen?” There’s hardly any need to mention that just before this call to duty, Birand paid tribute to the routine of mentioning the Turks’ generosity towards the Jews back in 1492.

Not an apologist at all

Yet, it is important to note that Bali is by no means interested in justifying the Jewish lobby’s vigorous efforts to please the Turkish authorities. While he puts forth a wealth of evidence of the huge pressure the Jewish community in Turkey is subjected to, that evidence does not prevent him from giving a critical account of how the Jewish leadership in Turkey has displayed an eagerness to advocate Turkish views and to support official Turkish policies. There are numerous accounts in the book of how the Turkish chief rabbinate confirmed the Jewish community’s happiness and well-being in Turkey, opposing the promotion of the Armenian Genocide thesis, and how the Quincentennial Foundation, established by Turkish Jewish leaders in 1992 to celebrate the 500th year anniversary of the arrival of the Jews to Ottoman lands, actively championed Turkish official theses.

It is clear from the book that Bali does not like to make comments on the meaning of his findings; rather, he puts the facts together like a scientist, avoiding to make personal comments, draw conclusions, or speculate about the reasons or outcomes of certain facts and events. What he exposes is clear enough to make the picture complete in the eyes of the reader. It’s up to the reader to acknowledge, for example, the fact that those who criticized Turkish Jews for their submissiveness had no right to expect bravery—when none of them raised their voice against the rabid anti-Semitism freely displayed by fundamentalists, or against the innuendos from government officials, or against the quite obvious threats from opinion leaders who kept asking the Jews to prove their loyalty to the Turkish state or relinquish their right to be treated as equal citizens.

A last word about Rifat Bali’s book “Model Citizens.” It should definitely be translated into English for those who are interested in the Jewish factor in Turkey’s struggle against Armenian initiatives to recognize the genocide. It would be impossible for anyone either in Turkey or elsewhere to make a realistic, objective, and complete evaluation of Turkey’s success in securing the support of Jewish leaders both in Turkey and abroad without reading this book. Not only that, but the “Model Citizens” is a guide to understanding how deeply rooted anti-Semitism still is in Turkey that claims to be a European country knocking on the door of the EU. It also shows how powerful it can be when mobilizing a country’s human resources against its Jewish citizens—to make the leaders of the Jewish community act as they are told. Turning the pages of Bali’s book, the reader is made to see that anti-Semitism has a historical context so horrifying and so vivid in the collective memory that it can be very instrumental in manipulating victims, and very successful in carving out “model citizens” as the voluntary executioners of government policies.


Jewish Bankers Were the Cause of Both World War 2 and the Armenian Genocide

A rare color photo of Adolf Hitler which shows his true eye color (date unknown)by David Sims

IT SHOULD be no secret to any educated person that wars are usually instigated for financial reasons. The Armenian Genocide (1915), often blamed on Turkish nationalism, was actually triggered by the Rothschild banking family, through their agent, a Jew named Emanuel Curasso. He was part of the group that led the Young Turks, whose membership was a mixture of Muslims and Jews.

The Rothschilds owned the Caspian and Black Sea Petroleum Company, which extracted oil from fields near Baku, in Azerbaijan, and shipped it to their refinery in Fiume on the Adriatic. The products were then sold throughout the Middle East. The Rothschilds wanted to eliminate ethnic conflict along the trade route, and since the Armenians were the weakest party in those conflicts, the cheapest way for the Rothschilds to get what they wanted was to eliminate the Armenians.

Likewise, the Second World War began because Germany broke away from the Jewish banking houses (including the Rothschilds). The Jewish bankers had expected Hitler to place Germany in debt with loans from their banks as his means of bringing about Germany’s economic recovery. Instead, Hitler found other means — including international barter and alternative financial systems in which the Jews didn’t have any usurious fingers in the pie.

This fact was well-understood at the time, and it was summarized by Viscount Lymington: “If we have a period of peace for only three years, the financial system of Messrs. Frankfurter, Warburg, and Baruch, and most of Wall Street, will topple of its own accord.” (Source: The New Pioneer, May 1939.)

That was the actual reason for the Second World War. Hitler was about to yank the Jewish vampire off the back of Western civilization, and that vampire did not want to be deprived of its prey. So it began a war to defend the parasitical status quo.

The invasion of Poland was a pretext. If it had been the real reason for the war, then the simultaneous invasion of Poland’s eastern half by the Soviet Union would have been just as objectionable as Germany’s invasion of Poland’s western half.

Jewish ADL Violated US Law By Attacking Trump

ADL VIOLATES LAWBy Attacking Trump, The ADL is Violating Their 501c3 Status

From DAILY STORMER

The Jew ADL has come out and attacked Donald Trump for not denouncing the support of David Duke, the alt-right and Anime Nazis.

Here are their demands, from a press release:

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today called on presidential candidate Donald Trump to distance himself from white nationalist and former KKK Grand Wizard David Duke, as well as other white supremacists, and publicly condemn their racism.

Although he did not explicitly endorse Mr. Trump, David Duke recently said on his radio program, “Voting against Donald Trump at this point is really treason to your heritage.” He encouraged listeners to volunteer for the campaign, saying that at Trump campaign offices, “you’re going to meet people that have the same kind of mindset that you have.”

Mr. Trump may have distanced himself from white supremacists, but he must do so unequivocally,” said Marvin D. Nathan, ADL National Chair, and Jonathan A. Greenblatt, ADL CEO. “It is time for him to come out firmly against these bigoted views and the people that espouse them.”

Look at that.

The Jews say Trump “must” do something. It’s an order.

The ADL is a non-profit with 501c3 status, and this attack on Our Leader clearly violates the legal limitations associated with this tax group.

From the IRS website:

Under the Internal Revenue Code, all section 501(c)(3) organizations are absolutely prohibited from directly or indirectly participating in, or intervening in, any political campaign on behalf of (or in opposition to) any candidate for elective public office. Contributions to political campaign funds orpublic statements of position (verbal or written) made on behalf of the organization in favor of or in opposition to any candidate for public office clearly violate the prohibition against political campaign activity. Violating this prohibition may result in denial or revocation of tax-exempt status and the imposition of certain excise taxes.

Can’t really get any more clearcut than that.

Trying to stump someone is obviously “intervening.” As is making demands that a politician endorse a certain position or be subject to abuse. By condemning the candidate Trump, they are attempting to influence the election by portraying him negatively.

This violation is very, very clear.

These Jews are lawyers. You’d think they’d know better.

I hope Trump sues them.

Jew Jake Tapper Invokes David Duke And KKK To Try And Stump The Trump

From INFO STORMER

No one seemed to care when Sen. Robert Byrd endorsed Obama, even though he had been in the KKK for years! (INCOG)

The CNN Jew Jake Tapper has invoked David Duke and the KKK as part of an underhanded effort to stump the Trump. Tapper asked Trump if he would disavow Duke’s support of his campaign while associating Duke with the KKK. As if, Trump has any control who supports him.

First off, it has been over 40 years since Duke was in the KKK and Duke doesn’t consider himself any sort of “supremacist.”

Secondly, where were these Jews back in 2008 demanding Barack Obama to disavow support from “Black power” groups?

These talking points are mainly coming from the subversive Jews at the Anti-Defamation League. If the ADL is trying to kill Trump’s campaign with this nonsense, than it is clear that Trump’s campaign is on the right track. There are few organizations in the United States more vile than the ADL.

The good news is that everyone is seeing how desperate and ridiculous these tactics are. They are doomed to fail.

As many people are getting wrapped up in Putin worship at the moment (perhaps for legitimate reasons), it is a good time to revisit some of the things Vlad has said not too long ago. This is a Putin speech in Israel from 2012. Putin subsequently banned Holocaust revisionism in Russia in 2014.http://www.jta.org/2014/05/05/news-op…

Putin outlaws Holocaust® Denial in Russia

Putin, Vladimir-Listens to Rabbi.jpg (1)RECEIVING THE WORD — Russian President Vladimir Putin listens intently as Moscow’s Chief Rabbi Berel Lazar explains Hebrew law to him during a 2013 visit to the new Jewish Museum in the Muscovite capital. Putin personally donated one month of his salary towards construction of the museum, thought to be the largest of its kind in the world.

MOSCOW — Russian President Vladimir Putin signed a law [May 5] making the denial of [alleged National Socialist] crimes and distortion of the Soviet Union’s role in the World War II a criminal offense punishable by up to five years in jail.

The law, described by critics as an attempt to curb freedom of expression to appease conservative Russians, the ex-KGB spy’s main support base, also criminalizes the public desecration of [Soviet] war memorials.

Risky to dispute Soviet WWII role

The Kremlin has used World War II as a pillar to unite a society that Putin has said lost its moral bearings following the 1991 Soviet collapse.

It has become increasingly risky for Russians to dispute an official line that glorifies the wartime achievements of the Soviet leadership and plays down its errors.

The new law would ban “wittingly spreading false information about the activity of the USSR during the years of World War II.”

Russian officials and media have raised the specter of [National Socialist] Germany repeatedly during Moscow’s confrontation with the West over Ukraine, calling the overthrow of a Russian-allied president in February a coup carried out in part by “neo-Nazi” forces.

TV channel taken down
for questioning Leningrad siege

Independent channel Dozhd (TV Rain) was taken off the air earlier this year after asking viewers whether Leningrad, now St Petersburg, should have been given to German troops to save lives during its 872-day siege during World War II.

In a comment posted when the legislation was first introduced, veteran TV host Vladimir Posner said he believed its aim was “to shut the mouths of journalists, historians and writers.”

He said he feared it would “practically ban criticism of Stalin” for “grave mistakes that led to the deaths of hundreds of thousands of our soldiers.”

World’s First Anti-Holocaust Convention

Instauration, Dec. 1979

 

A great and historic weekend — $50,000 offered for proof of gassing.

 

 

Labor Day weekend marked what may be the end of one historical epoch and the beginning of another — the end of the domination of the Six Million myth over the Western mind and the start of a new wave of historical revisionism that might well signal the reappearance of truth in history.

 

The Revisionist Convention of the Institute for Historical Review was held at Northrop Institute of Technology in Los Angeles. Speakers came from all over the world: Robert Faurisson from France; John Bennett from Australia;Udo Walendy from Germany; Louis FitzGibbon from Britain; Arthur Butz andJames Martin from the US.

 

The proceedings began on Friday, August 31. Some of those present already knew each other. For the most part, however, the faces belonged to new converts to the anti-Holocaust cause. A significant proportion of the attendance were engineers — people with a liking for hard facts who instinctively resist overblown claims and sly innuendo. Also present were several physicists, a brace of computer programmers and one commercial airline pilot. The convention was dedicated to the memory of the founding father of revisionism, Dr. Harry Elmer Barnes, who passed into the realm of eternal history in 1968.*

*[Actually, Dr. Harry Elmer Barnes passed away on Aug. 25, I969]

Saturday, the meeting began in earnest in the Northrop auditorium.

 

The delegates were formally welcomed by Willis Carto, one of the organizers of the Institute for Historical Review and the dynamic force behind Liberty Lobby. He then yielded to the permanent chairman George Resch, a libertarian investment counsellor associated with the Institute for Human Studies in San Francisco.

The first speaker was Dr. James Martin, life-long friend and colleague of Barnes, who presented a lively and informative chronology of revisionism. The only professional historian at the meeting, Martin remarked that we need not worry that very few present-day revisionists are professional historians. After all, not one of the Holocaust promoters is! Martin asserted many modern historians privately accept the truth of the revisionist argument, but are afraid to come out and say so. “There are two ‘Six Million’ atrocity stories,” Martin stated:

In Soviet propaganda the gassed six million are Slavs, not Jews. The Kremlin uses the myth to buttress the Soviet policy of keeping Germany divided and disarmed.

 

Dr. Arthur Butz, author of The Hoax of the Twentieth Century, presented a fascinating account of developments in the revisionist field since publication of his book in 1976.

Butz described the continuing persecution of individuals in Europe who dared to question the Holocaust. Manfred Roeder, the German attorney, was expelled from the German bar, prosecuted for writing the foreword to Thies Christophersen’s Auschwitz Lie, and had to flee the country. Christophersen himself was given a suspended jail sentence for writing the truth about Auschwitz and faces a further trial upon his return to West Germany.

Butz also explained that Dr. Wilhelm Staglich, author of the recently publishedAuschwitz Myth and a retired Hamburg judge who served in an anti-aircraft battery at Auschwitz, has also been subject to legal attack. His pension was reduced by 20% for five years for contradicting death camp atrocity tales.

 

worlds-first-anti-holocaust-convention-1979-2060-dr-wilhelm-staglich-pics

[Image] Dr. Wilhelm Stäglich, (1916 – 2006) German judge and historian, was an important revisionist writer, most notably for his detailed study, Der Auschwitz-Mythos (The Auschwitz Myth). During the Second World War he served from mid-July to mid-September 1944 as an Ordonnanzoffizier (orderly officer) on the staff of an anti-aircraft detachment stationed near the Auschwitz camp. As part of his duties, he maintained contact with the SS camp command, and had unlimited access to the Auschwitz main camp, where the command was headquartered.

 

When he appealed, the judge ruled it was no good introducing the books, or articles of Butz and Faurisson as evidence, because Butz and Faurisson were pseudonyms! As for the German translation of the Hoax of the Twentieth Century, Butz said it has been placed on the Bonn government’s “Index“, which means that it may not be advertised, or sold to minors.

 

Butz went on to relate that late in 1978 a respected German historian, Professor Hellmut Diwald, had published his massive History of the Germans by Propylaen, a division of Axel Springer’s publishing combine.

[Image] Professor Hellmut Diwald’s book “Geschichte der Deutschen” (History of the Germans).

 

On two pages, Diwald wrote some critical things about the Holocaust story. The press shrieked for censorship. Golo Mann, Thomas Mann’s half- Jewish son, declared:

These two pages are the most monstrous that I have yet to read in a German book since 1945.

 

The publisher responded to the clamor by recalling the first edition of the book and substituting an altered version in which the offending pages were rewritten. Springer promised that this was only the start of an extensive job of rewriting and that eventually the history would be “unrecognizable.

 

In the English-speaking world, Butz said, most of the efforts to suppress revisionism have been through the “curtain of silence” technique. But from time to time there had been official government intervention. Harwood’s work Did Six Million Really Die? was banned in South Africa at the behest of the Jewish Board of Deputies, which published an “Answer to Harwood” called Six Million Did Die. The German translation of Harwood’s book was placed on the German “verboten-for-young- peopleIndex in late 1978.

 

The Institute of Jewish Affairs in London published in the psychopolitical journalPatterns of Prejudice the only critique of Butz worthy of the name that has appeared anywhere in the world. In April 1977, Butz wrote the magazine Index on Censorship in London, which is supposed to defend academic freedom, and followed up his letter with a personal visit in the summer of 1977. No action was taken.

 

Butz concluded his lecture by underlining the unacademic behavior of academics toward the controversy. He gave as an example Professor Wolfe of New York University who wrote to the New York Times condemning a book which he calledFabrication of a Hoax. He demanded that Butz be brought up on charges of “academic incompetence.” Clearly, the man had never read the book and had only seen a New York Times mention of it, where the title had been incorrectly reported. In an afterthought, Butz philosophized:

I’ve never been able to understand the hostile reaction from Zionist groups. Jews should be elated to discover that large numbers of their people were not deliberately destroyed.

 

Next on the program was Udo Walendy, the German translator of Butz’s book, who gave his first English-language lecture. His subject was faked atrocity photographs, of which he showed many dramatic examples.

 

worlds-first-anti-holocaust-convention-1979-2056-udo-walendy-pics

[Image] Udo Walendy, born in 1927 in Germany, is one of the most prolific revisionist researchers, writers and publishers in the world. He has written numerous books and since the early 1970s has been publishing a German periodical called Historische Tatsachen (Historical Facts), so far encompassing over 110 issues — including the German version of Did Six Million Really Die?and the German language version of the first Leuchter Report.

 

Walendy, who had been fired from his teaching job, because of his political views, exhibited an enlargement of one widely reproduced photograph of supposed victims of Dachau gas ovens. When it was established that Dachau never had any gas ovens, investigation proved the picture actually showed German corpses collected after the saturation bombing of Dresden.

 

On Saturday evening the convention members were “entertained” with a variety of Holocaust propaganda films, including Genocide (Britain), The Nuremberg Trials (USA) and Nacht und Nebel (France). Butz, Walendy and Faurisson presented a critique of each film in turn, but it was not long before viewers themselves were able to decipher the routine formula of the films, since each used almost exactly the same stills and clips.

 

The “martyred Warsaw ghetto boy” (now alive, well and well off in Britain) appeared in the films looking as plaintive as ever. As Faurisson pointed out, the commentary did not state that he had been arrested in a crackdown on juvenile thieves.

The audience searched in vain for shots and bodies piled up vertically/horizontally/pyramidically (depending on which Holocaust “expert” one reads) in gas chambers at Auschwitz. The gruesome shots came from Belsen, where thousands died of typhus epidemics, because no Zyklon B was available to disinfect the camp’s new arrivals.

 

worlds-first-anti-holocaust-convention-1979-2063-professor-faurisson-pics

[Image] Professor Faurisson. For more than 20 years, Robert Faurisson has been Europe’s foremost Holocaust revisionist scholar. He was born on January 25, 1929, in Shepperton, England. His father was French and his mother was Scottish. As a boy and young man, he attended schools in Singapore, Japan, and in France. He was educated at a Lycée in Paris, and at the renowned Sorbonne. For his views Faurisson has repeatedly been a victim of physical assault. Between November 1978 and May 1993 he was a victim of ten attacks, at least nine of them carried out by Jewish thugs. None of the criminal assailants in any of these assaults has ever been brought to justice.

 

Sunday morning, Professor Faurisson delivered an address on the fraudulent gas chambers at Auschwitz. He compared the alleged asphyxiation of inmates to the execution of murderers in American prison gas chambers, pointing out that it was the neutralization of the gas which posed the most problems. In the US a full hour must pass before the gas chamber can be opened. The prisoner’s body must then be hosed down by a clean-up squad wearing gas masks and rubber gloves. Fans expel the almost neutralized gas into the atmosphere, but even then the risk is still so high that the guards must come down from their watchtowers to avoid the possibility of receiving a fatal dose of gas. The gas chamber itself must be hermetically sealed.

 

worlds-first-anti-holocaust-convention-1979-2068-rudolf-hoess-in-uniform

[Image] Rudolf Höss (center) was born in Baden-Baden on 25 November 1900, the son of pious Catholic parents. Höss was appointed as the first Commandant at Auschwitz concentration camp on 1 May 1940 and held this position until 1 December 1943 (3 years, 7 months). Höss was arrested by British military police near Flensburg, Schleswig- Holstein, on 2 March 1946, tortured and then handed over to the Polish authorities just over two months later.  He was executed by hanging on 7 April 1947, next to the house inside the Auschwitz camp, where he had lived with his wife and five children.

 

Faurisson asked the delegates to compare these precautionary measures with the account of Rudolf Hoss, one of the commandants of Auschwitz. In his “confession” to his Polish Communist jailers, Hoss stated the gas chamber operators entered the chamber immediately (sofort) after gassing 2,000 jews, while eating and drinking (and therefore not wearing gas masks). Faurisson demanded:

What kind of super-powerful fan could have evacuated the room so efficiently that it even removed the hydrocyanic acid (gas) from the entire room, from the pockets of air in between the bodies and from the walls, clothing, hair and bodies?

 

He then asked the audience to compare the Hoss confessions with the reality of the structures at Auschwitz. With a series of slides, some of which he obtained from the Auschwitz museum staff, Faurisson showed that the structure which is currently represented as a gas chamber is nothing of the sort. The entry to the room is not a hermetically sealed steel door, as described in Holocaust tracts. The “peephole” so frequently described is not in the gas chamber door, but in the door of an adjacent anteroom. Since there is an ordinary glass window high up in the gas chamber, Faurisson wondered why those being gassed could not have smashed their way our, or at the very least smashed the glass to allow the gas to escape.

 

 

Resolution unanimously adopted at the Revisionist Convention

 

We, the speakers, delegates and officers of the Institute for Historical Review 1979 Revisionist Convention, meeting at Los Angeles this September 2, after reviewing the evidence that the Germans killed six million Jews during World War II in an unprecedented act of genocide, and considering both sides of this question, as well as the evidence of genuine atrocities, resolve the following:

 

WHEREAS the facts surrounding the allegations that gas chambers existed in occupied Europe during World War II are demonstrably false, and

 

WHEREAS the whole theory of “the Holocaust” has been created by and promulgated by political Zionism for the attainment of political and economic ends, specifically the continued and perpetual financial support of the military aggression of Israel by the people of Germany and the U.S., and

 

WHEREAS the constantly escalating level of “Holocaust” propaganda distributed by the mass media and government agencies is poisoning the minds of the American people, especially youth, and

 

WHEREAS we are conscientiously concerned that this strident hate propaganda is seriously impeding the necessary peace, unity, brotherhood and understanding that we desire among all the peoples of the Western World; now therefore,

 

BE IT RESOLVED we urge that the Congress of the US investigate the whole question of war guilt, military aggression in the 20th century, the relationship of private political and banking interests with military aggression, deceitful wartime propaganda masquerading as fact, the real responsibility for war, twisted history, the Nuremberg War Crimes Trials, proven atrocities and genocide, such as the murder of thousands of Ukrainians and Poles at Vinnitsa in 1937 and Katyn in 1940 and the truth of the alleged extermination of six million Jews in Europe during World War II.

 

 

Most astonishing of all, Faurisson showed pictures of the far end of the gas chamber where there is an open doorway, but no door! In fact, it appears there was never a door. The doorway leads to the crematorium where corpses were incinerated. How was it, Faurisson asked, that the gas stayed in the room and did not flow out and gas the incinerator workers? And how was it that the Germans used hydrocyanic acid, which is inflammable and explosive, so near the ovens?

 

At regular intervals along the gas chamber walls were the remains of partitions which had previously divided the room into segments. Puzzled by this, Faurisson took the original German plans of the room to a specialist in mortuary construction in Paris, who took one look at them and said straight away that the structure was obviously a morgue. Part of it had been built underground to keep the bodies cool.

Louis FitzGibbon (1925 – 2003), a British scholar and humanitarian, was active for years in publicizing the suppressed truth about the 1940 killing of thousands of captured Polish officers by the Soviet secret police. Although the facts about the massacre are now well established, during the 1970s his efforts on behalf of justice and historical truth were considered controversial because many people still endorsed the World War II claim by the Allied powers that the gruesome wartime killings had been carried out by German authorities.

Next on the program was Louis Fitz-Gibbon, the English author of Katyn, and half-brother of the pro-Holocaust writer Constantine Fitz-Gibbon (who translated the Hoss “confessions”). Louis presented a film about the Katyn massacre produced by the Polish Ex-Combatants Association in Britain. He then described his personal quest for 10,000 other missing Poles not found at Katyn. The author described how he had finally found what he was looking for, in the form of a KGB document which gave all the horrifying and clinical details of a similar massacre.

 

The final speaker of the morning session was Dr. Austin App, an elder statesman of the revisionist movement. The theme of his talk was the injustice of postwar reparations which pumped untold billions of dollars and marks into Israel – all, because of an “imaginary crime.

In the afternoon the delegates reassembled to listen to Devin Garrity, head of Devin-Adair publishing house, who spoke about his life-long struggle against censorship in the publishing industry.

 

John Bennett, an Australian civil liberties lawyer, gave a short talk on what he had been up to down under, publishing his own flyers and sending Butz’s books to libraries and historians.

 

worlds-first-anti-holocaust-convention-1979-2051-john-t-bennett-pics

[Image] John T. Bennett (1936-2013) was for decades well known in Australia as a vigorous and outspoken defender of civil liberties and freedom of speech and inquiry. He is also known as a Australia’s leading revisionist writer and publicist.

 

Bennett was drawn into the controversy when Australian Zionists tried to force a Palestinian radio program off the air. In the course of defending the Palestinians’ right of free speech, he found the Butz book was being suppressed by the same crowd. Bennett quoted a real gem from one of his critics, a Dr. Rubenstein:

Were the Holocaust shown to be a hoax, the number one weapon in Israel’s propaganda armory disappears.

 

The convention ended with a dramatic announcement from Willis Carto. He said the Institute for Historical Review was releasing a press statement offering a$50,000 reward to any person, anywhere in the world, who could prove that Nazis had operated gas chambers to exterminate Jews.

 

News of the reward, Carto stated, would be forwarded to the publishers of so-called “witness testimony” with the request that the witnesses step forward to have their evidence examined by a panel of knowledgeable investigators. As of November 25, no claimants for the reward had shown up. Carto also announced that the Institute would soon be starting a new publication journal of Historical Review to provide a platform for revisionists from around the world and that the first issue in the spring of 1980 would contain transcripts of the papers presented at the convention.*

 

Before the convention disbanded, the delegates were unanimous in expressing their profound thanks to the organizers for their foresight and courage. They had reason to only a few years ago such a meeting on such a subject would have been unthinkable.

 

 

* Subscriptions to the Journal of Historical Review cost $20 per year. But as an introductory offer charter subscribers will only be charged $16 and will also receive at no additional charge Katyn by Louis Fitz-Gibbon.

Fake Film Documentaries – ‘Nazi’ Concentration Camps on Staten Island
“As senior director for the popular movie house newsreel, he often created world events with actors and movie sets. One such news feature film, Inside Nazi Germany, made in 1938, included footage of a “concentration camp” that was filmed on Staten Island with scores of New York City actors. Much of the film’s footage was shot within the borders of the Third Reich by a free-lance cameraman, but [Louis] Rochement [Glenn’s producer] felt that the film had been censored by the German authorities and ordered Glenn to re-enact widely reported Nazi camp atrocities.”
http://www.fpp.co.uk/Auschwitz/docs/fake/GlennObit.html

In November 1941, the British government decided that there were not enough dramatic photographs of Nazi atrocities. The BSC arranged for a studio in Canada to create such photographs using actors, stage-sets, costumes, and dummies for the manufacture of war scenes in which actors dressed up as Nazi soldiers were shown mass-murdering innocent people. These photos were widely circulated in the United States. – Desperate Deception: British Covert Operations in the United States, 1939-44

The following book details how the BRIZIS and YANKIZ set up a fake German Concentration Camp on Staten Island to create “news reel” footage depicting “Nazi atrocities” with which to get the American public to support the war against Germany. This was done in Canada too where fake photos and were created, all to demonize the Germans! But of course, it didn’t stop there when the war ended.

Dino A. Brugioni was one of the founders of the CIA’s National Photographic Interpretation Center. He also co-authored the CIA’s “Retrospective Analysis of the Auschwitz-Birkenau Extermination Complex.” In the “About the Author” section of this book it notes that he “became the CIA expert in photo fakery and photo manipulation.” Of course this topic is of interest to revisionists. It is doubly interesting in that the self-admitted CIA expert in photo fakery is also the one who wrote the CIA’s report based on aerial photos to prove the Holocaust.

Stalin’s “Torch-men-Order” #0428 confirmed by Russia
The so-called “torch-men order” (Fackelmännerbefehl) is the command No. 0428, issued November 17th, 1941 by Stalin. It declares that Russian partisans in German uniforms, particularly those of the Waffen-SS, were to destroy all settlements within a swathe of about 40 – 60 km depth from the main battle lines and to ruthlessly kill the civilian population. With these tactics it was important to leave a few survivors, which would report the supposed German terror attacks. This method of warfare was also confirmed by German soldiers who captured many Russian partisans wearing German uniforms.

The Stawka headquarters of the highest commands orders:

All settlements, in which German troops are found, up to a depth of 40 – 60km from the main lines of battle, are to be destroyed and set on fire, also 20-30km from the roads. For the destruction of the settled areas in the required radius, the air force will be made available, also artillery and rocket-launchers will be used extensively, as well as intelligence units, skiers and Partisan divisions, who are equipped with bottles with flammable liquid. These hunting expeditions in their activities of destruction are to be dressed to the greatest extent in German soldier’s uniforms and uniforms of the Waffen-SS looted from the German army.

This will ignite hatred toward all fascist occupiers and make the conscription of partisans from the outlaying areas of fascist territories easier. It is important to have survivors who will tell about “German atrocities”. For this purpose every regiment is to form hunter-units of about 20- 30 men strong with the task to detonate and incinerate the villages. We have to select brave fighters for this action of destruction of settled areas. These men will be especially recommended to receive bravery awards when working in German uniforms behind enemy lines and destroying those settlement outposts. Among the population we have to spread the rumor that the Germans are burning the villages in order to punish the Partisans.

HOLOCAUST DENIAL LAWS: THE TRUTH IS NO DEFENSE – EVIDENCE INADMISSABLE, DEFENSE FORBIDDEN

ernst_dees

German courts are forbidden by orders from higher up to accept such motions to introduce evidence, as is stated in Article 97 of the German Basic Law: “Judges are independent and subject only to the Law.”

Germany’s Basic Law, which was negotiated between German politicians and primarily the U.S. occupational forces right after WWII, is considered to be its constitution, although formally seen it has never been approved by a referendum of the German people, hence lacks formal legitimacy.

One hideous feature of German legal standards is that, when it comes to “the Holocaust,” it pits human dignity against the right to search for the truth. According to this “logic,” the human dignity of all Jews – those who suffered back then and those who live today – depends on everyone accepting the orthodox Holocaust narrative. And since the protection of human dignity is the first and most important article in the German constitution, this has priority over everything else.

What I pointed out first in court was the fact that denying us the search for the truth is an even more serious violation of human dignity than denying the Jews a certain narrative of a detail of their history. After all: what sets us humans apart from bacteria and insects? Isn’t it the capacity to doubt our senses and to systematically search for the reality behind the mere semblance.

In Germany, if a person is taken to court on the charge of Holocaust Denial a truly Orwellian law exists that it is illegal to submit evidence to the court that refutes the alleged gas chambers or any other aspect of the Holocaust narrative. It is illegal for the defendant to defend their position. If the defendant attempts to defend their position in court the defendant will be found guilty of Holocaust Denial and further fines or years of imprisonment will be added to the defendant’s punishment for attempting to defend his or her position. If the defendant’s lawyer attempts to defend their client’s position the lawyer will also be charged and convicted of Holocaust Denial as happened to German lawyer Sylvia Stolz.

The truth is no defense. In Germany you can go to jail for telling an audience what the curator of the Auschwitz Museum said about Auschwitz. Can you call the curator as a witness? No. The truth is no defense. One can go to prison for reporting scientific findings regarding the alleged homicdal gas chambers. Is science a defense? No. They criminalize the honest practice of science. It is a crime to speak the truth.

German Laws for the Suppression of Free Speech

The precedence of individual rights and the distinction between the expression of opinion and claims of fact underlie the prohibition of the so-called “Auschwitz-Lüge” (“Auschwitz lie”). The expression was first coined by right-wing extremists and anti-Semites both in Germany and elsewhere to deny the systematic mass murder of European Jewry in Auschwitz and other concentration camps under the Nazis. The “lie,” they maintain, was invented by Jews to defame Germans and to exploit them financially. In the meantime, the expression has acquired a broader meaning and now serves as a shorthand description of assertions denying that the Holocaust occurred.

The Criminal Code, in its Sections 185, 189 and 194, prohibits the defamation and denigration of the character of deceased persons and make such denigration punishable by law. The statement that Jews were not persecuted during National Socialism is clearly false. The mass murder of Jews in the gas chambers of the Third Reich is a historical fact that has been proven by countless witness statements and documents, numerous court rulings and extensive historical research.

In dealing with denial of the Holocaust, criminal law clearly finds itself in conflict with the right to express one’s opinion. While recognizing that prohibiting the “Lüge” represents a limitation of the right to free expression, German jurisprudence holds that the injury to the personal honor of those defamed (Jewish citizens) weighs so heavily that it takes precedence over freedom of expression.

In a ruling issued in April 1994, the Federal Constitutional Court confirmed that Holocaust revisionism is not protected under the Basic Law’s guarantee of freedom of opinion. “In weighing the importance of free speech against that of individual rights, courts must consider on the one hand the severity of the offense caused by Holocaust denial to the Jewish population in light of the suffering inflicted upon it by Germany. On the other hand, the opinion expressed is not particularly deserving of protection,” the constitutional court judges wrote, “stemming as it does from a claim of fact that has been proven untrue. This court has consistently protected the personal honor of those defamed above the right of others to make patently false statements.”

The “Auschwitz-Lüge” may also be prosecuted under Section 130 of the Criminal Code, which makes incitement (Volksverhetzung) a punishable offense. The current German legal interpretation of incitement protects public peace and human dignity. The constitutional foundation of the Federal Republic of Germany recognizes no interest that could justify injuring the personal honor and dignity of some of its citizens and promoting enmity and hatred toward them. Germany is not, incidentally, the only nation that considers denial of the Holocaust to be beyond the limits of free speech. France passed a law in 1990 that makes it a criminal offense to dispute the facts of the Holocaust as recognized by French courts or the 1945 international war crimes tribunal held in Nuremberg. A similar law exists in Italy.

Sylvia Stolz “The Reality of Freedom of Expression”

In this video, Sylvia Stolz, who has been called the German Joan of Arc, discusses her experiences as a trial lawyer defending Ernst Zündel and others who have been charged with holocaust denial. A question that people have been asking for a long time is that if the holocaust is based upon such solid evidence, and can withstand historical scrutiny, then why is it against the law to question it, as indeed is the case in France, Germany, and certain other countries?

But the picture of just how repressive things can get in countries where laws like this are on the books is darker and more Kafkaesque than most of us realize. Stolz describes the arbitrary and coercive parameters set by the German legal system when defense attorneys  attempt to submit evidence or mount a rational, reasoned defense of their clients. In cases where defendants are charged with holocaust denial, normal judicial procedures and rules of evidence are in essence tossed out the window, making a legal defense practically impossible. What comes through loud and clear from Stolz’s talk is the complete, utter insanity of holocaust denial laws. Here is a bit from the video description:

In the speech, Stolz discusses her experiences as a defence lawyer for so-called Holocaust deniers in Germany, and describes the Orwellian system of state-enforced repression there which denies defendants (and their lawyers!) the right to explain themselves under threat of additional charges for the “repeat offence” of expressing a forbidden idea, even in their own defence in a court of law. Stolz further relates how the subject of the Holocaust itself has never been clearly or adequately defined by the German courts through the normal channel of judicial findings-of-fact in precedent decisions. Instead, the courts have relied on the arbitrary doctrine that the facts of the Holocaust are “self-evident” and thus in no need of proof, despite the obvious objection that the arguments of the “deniers” themselves clearly demonstrate that those facts are indeed contestable and thus cannot be “self-evident” by definition.

In the face of such abuses and absurdities, other lawyers might throw up their hands and simply walk away: Sylvia Stolz has the courage to call injustice what it is, and take a stand. Her speech is an extraordinary document of our times, a deeply moving call “to think what is true, to feel what is beautiful, and to want what is good.” Wherever you may fall along the ideological spectrum, if you believe in freedom of expression, this speech is a must.

Stolz has been arrested, jailed and stripped of her license to practice law. And on February 25, 2015 she was sentenced to 20 months in prison for “racial incitation”… on the basis of statements she made in this speech. The talk was given on November 24, 2012.

Holocaust skeptic Vincent Reynouard sentenced to two years prison in France
In light of all the ‘Je Suis Charlie’ free speech hoopla, the French regime just confirmed their fraudulent stance on the issue by sentencing a man, Vincent Reynouard, to two years in jail for his non-violent historical opinions concerning the ‘Holocaust.’ The ‘free speech’ sham continues in the Talmudic Republic of France.

In France, Holocaust revisionists are now treated as dangerous criminals


Vincent Reynouard, condemned for having the wrong view of history as it pertains to WWII and “Holocaust,” has now been refused a bank account. Is not the right to have a bank account a basic right of citizenship, necessary for carrying on one’s business in modern society … and not a privilege to be taken away for political reasons? This signals that questioning the “Holocaust” is intended to be utterly stamped out, not just discouraged. Also that the private sector is being forced to carry out the policies of the political governmental sector. And it also signals that Vincent Reynouard’s work in this field is effective, ie. successful, and as he is a younger man than Robert Faurisson and not likely to pass from the scene soon on his own — he must be stopped. Reynouard rightly speaks of a religous taboo, saying that “in our modern secularized societies, the Hitlerian “gas chamber” has become a religious taboo. He cites a columnist writing for L’Express: “Holocaust denial is not a hypothesis [to be debated]; Holocaust drew a line beyond which doubt is a crime.”  Imagine that this is accepted in a supposedly Democratic society!

Why ‘Holocaust Denial’ Laws are Dangerous
Justice applied selectively is not justice. It is a form of injustice. Because “denial” laws prohibit dissident views about only one chapter of history, they are inherently unfair. They inhibit historical inquiry and restrict free speech.

“Holocaust denial” laws are the result of a well-organized, long-term Jewish campaign. In 1982, the Institute for Jewish Affairs in London, a London-based agency of the World Jewish Congress, announced that it was launching a worldwide campaign to persuade and pressure governments to outlaw “Holocaust denial.” The anti-revisionist laws that were subsequently enacted in several European countries reflect the success of this initiative. Germany enacted its “Holocaust denial” statute in 1985 (amended in 1994), France in 1990, Austria in 1992, Belgium in 1995, and Slovakia in 2001. Underscoring the organized nature of this campaign, the International Association of Jewish Lawyers and Jurists in June 1998 called for new and more severe laws against “Holocaust denial.”

The ‘Holocaust’ storyline is one of the most easily debunked narratives ever contrived. That is why those who question it are arrested and persecuted. Truth needs no protection from scrutiny.

GENERAL REVISIONIST ARTICLES

The Great Holocaust Mystery: Reconsidering the Evidence by Thomas Dalton

The Holocaust is the greatest murder-mystery of the 20th century. Six million Jews, we are told, perished at the hands of the Nazis—in gas chambers, ghettos, and concentration camps. They were starved, suffocated, and shot. Their bodies were buried in mass graves, or burned in the ovens of Auschwitz, or on open flames. And all simply because they were Jews. It was the embodiment of evil, the greatest crime ever perpetrated.

Traditional historians claim to know about this crime in great detail. They have documents, photographs, and hard evidence. They have incriminating testimony from key Nazis. Some of the gas chambers have survived. And they have innumerable Jewish eyewitnesses. According to some, it is the “most well-documented event in history.”1

And yet, when we ask detailed and pointed questions, our historians fall short. They don’t really know when, where, or how the Jews died. They have no technical explanation of how it was possible, for example, to gas thousands of people per day in a single room, and then to dispose of their bodies—such that not a trace remains. They cannot find the mass graves that allegedly held thousands of bodies. They cannot explain wartime aerial photographs that show a disturbingly calm Auschwitz camp. And they refuse to even consider a raft of contradictory evidence. In fact, many aspects of the traditional story simply don’t add up. The deeper we look, the more puzzling the picture becomes—and hence, the great mystery.

As with any murder, we, as investigators, would like to examine several aspects of the crime; these would include the motive, the means by which it was conducted, and the bodies of the victims. We would furthermore like to consider all ancillary and related evidence that might support, or refute, the traditional story. As we will see, all these areas are problematic, from the conventional standpoint.

Comment by Jewish Revsionist Paul Eisen:
This is from the excellent revisionist website Inconvenient History.
I don’t often post straightforward revisionist pieces because I think this is best left to specialists and scholars. But this is different. This is the clearest and most comprehensive overview of the subject I’ve seen.

I hope it’s read widely by all Holocaust worshippers, by all the Jewish apparatchiks and their lackeys who promote it and by all the state and institutional bodies who enforce it.

Holocaust Revisionism in 60 Seconds
By Thomas Dalton, PhD

On the traditional view, the Holocaust was the deliberate murder of some 6 million Jews by the Nazi regime during World War II.  Hitler’s intention all along was to kill the Jews, and many died in specially-constructed gas chambers.  The corpses were burned in crematoriums, and the ashes scattered.  Some of the most infamous extermination camps—Treblinka, Sobibor, Belzec—were completely dismantled and have all but vanished, as have the remains of the victims.

Revisionists believe, on the other hand, that there was never an intention to kill the Jews; rather, the Nazis simply wanted them out of Germany.  They believe that there were no homicidal gas chambers, and that the number of Jews who died during the war, from all causes, comes to less than 1 million—and perhaps only 500,000 or so.

Traditionalists call revisionists “Holocaust deniers,” because, they say, the revisionists deny that the Holocaust happened.  But this is obviously a misleading claim.  Revisionists accept that Hitler wanted a Germany free of Jews, and that he forcibly removed many of them, seized their property, and sent many others to labor camps.  They also accept that Hitler knew that many Jews would die in the process.  Depending on your definition, this could certainly count as a “holocaust.”  Revisionists do deny, however, that 6 million died, and they do deny that the Nazis constructed homicidal gas chambers.  They do not deny that a tragedy happened to the Jews, nor do they deny that many thousands of them died.

SOME TROUBLING FACTS

So, how can the average person begin to check these claims, to see where the truth lies?  Start with the “6 million” figure.  How plausible, in general, is this number?  The war in Europe ran for roughly 2,000 days (or 5½ years:  Sept 1939 to April 1945).  If the Germans killed 6 million Jews, then they must have averaged 3,000 per day—every day, 365 days a year, for five and a half straight years.  And of coursethey also must have burned, buried, or otherwise disposed of those same 3,000 bodies per day.  This fact, in itself, seems highly implausible, especially given all the other urgencies of war.

But isn’t the “6 million” figure documented in hundreds of history books?  The number itself is, but not the details.  Given all we supposedly know about this event, one would expect that there would be a clear and concise breakdown of the number, showing roughly where, and how, 6 million died.  Experts like Raul Hilberg claim that there are three main categories of deaths:  camps (primarily the 6 main “death camps”), shootings, and ghettos.  So, the experts should be able to show us how many died in camps, how many by shooting, and how many in the ghettos—such that the numbers add up to 6 million.  But they cannot do this.  The reader is invited to look at any mainstream published source for this information; it does not exist.  One can find numbers individually for each camp, or each ghetto, but virtually never any total to 6 million.  This strongly implies that there are serious problems with the overall picture.

Furthermore, the “6 million” number has a history that long precedes WW2.  One can find various accounts of “6 million suffering Jews” as far back as the 1860s.  In major newspapers like the New York Times and the Times of London we find about 2 dozen occurrences of that number in the six decadesbefore Hitler even came to power (in 1933).  And it shows up another 2 dozen times before the end of the war—a miracle if it were true.  This all suggests that the number was more symbolic than factual.

THE CONTEXT

The situation in Germany prior to 1933, back to at least the 1850s, was of a dominant Jewish minority, vastly disproportional to their size of 1-2% of the population.  This is very well documented, for press, entertainment, academia, and several sectors of business.  Given the tragedy of WWI and the crushing war reparations, among other things, it is understandable that Hitler and others wanted to completelyremove the Jews from German society.  And in fact this is, apparently, all they ever wanted—ethnic cleansing.  Hitler’s first letter on the topic, from 1920, speaks directly to this need to remove them.  Same with all his speeches through the 1930s, even into the war years.

Hitler, Goebbels, and others used words like vernichtung and ausrottung, which are flamboyant terms for removal or elimination.  But they do not entail murder.  The press always translates these terms in English as ‘extermination’ or ‘annihilation,’ in a literal or physical sense.  But the press was doing that for decadesbefore Hitler.  NY Times articles dating back to the 1870s decry the “extermination,” “annihilation,”, and even “holocaust” against the Jews in various countries—it really is striking how common this theme is.  Again, one senses that any action against Jews is portrayed in the harshest possible terms.

THE GAS CHAMBERS

The gassing story is rife with problems.  Allegedly, the Nazis crammed up to two thousand people intoenclosed rooms—some underground—and dumped cyanide pellets on them.  But this is senseless, because (a) the rooms generally had neither windows or ventilation, to vent the poisonous gas, (b) the pellets would keep emitting poison for hours, killing anyone who went inside, and (c) there is no plausible way to remove the bodies in a timely manner.  The Dachau camp has, today, a single gas chamber with two metal chutes for the gas pellets.  However, just 20 meters away are five delousing rooms (for clothing and bed linens), each with a well-engineered cyanide gas circulation machine.  It makes no sense to use a ridiculous method to kill people, when a proper one existed in the very same building.

And for all that, cyanide gas killed only about 1 million Jews, we are told—all at Auschwitz.  By contrast, more than 2 million were gassed with “exhaust gas from diesel engines.”  Not only is this even less workable than gas pellets, but it is nearly impossible to kill someone in any reasonable time with diesel exhaust—not enough carbon monoxide in it.  Some traditionalists now argue that they were gasolineengines, with higher monoxide content.  But this does not solve the many practical problems and inefficiencies of pumping engine exhaust gas, of any kind, into a sealed room.

Killing thousands per day is one problem; disposing of the bodies is another.  How do you completelyeliminate a corpse?  The usual line is: burned in a crematorium.  But the crematoria all were designed with individual person ovens, and each took about an hour to burn one body.  All of Auschwitz had a total of about 50 ovens, and thus could dispose of perhaps 50 x 20 hours = 1,000 bodies per day.  And that’s at the largest of all death camps.  Smaller camps like Treblinka, Sobibor, and Belzec had precisely zeroovens.  Hence all the bodies, we are told, were burned in the open air, over big log fires.  But this seems to be technically impossible, at the rate claimed—up to 6,500 per day.

Furthermore, crematoria and open-air fires create a lot of smoke—smoke that would be visible from both ground and air.  As it happens, we have 10 reconnaissance air photos of Auschwitz from 1944.  Of all these, only one photo shows even a single smoking crematorium chimney.  Four photos show small fires burning, but only from one very small corner of the camp.  Evidence of mass burning is strikingly absent.

SURVIVORS?

But what about all the Holocaust witnesses?  Well—what, after all, did the victims witness?  Enforced evacuation and encampment (true), people dying en route (true), people catching typhus and dying in the camps (true), dead bodies stacked in and around the crematoria (true), people separated from family members and disappearing (true).  And all this amidst a major war.  Such true facts get mixed with rumor and wild speculation, and suddenly we get stories of 2,000 Jews getting gassed in a basement of a crematorium, “5 million dead at Auschwitz” (NY Times), “6 million exterminated,” etc.  These are the kinds of issues that true Holocaust researchers should be investigating.

Why I Call Myself a Holocaust Denier by Paul Eisen
(Paul Eisen is a Jewish Revisionist)

My family were ordinary folk – ‘twice-a-year Jews’ we used to call them. But like most of us second and third generation, upwardly mobile, North London Jews, our Jewishness filled our lives. And, at that time, that meant Zionism and the Holocaust. For me, my family and our friends, a post-Holocaust Israel meant quite simply ‘never again’.

But, while seemingly ordinary, my family was also rather extraordinary. My father was unusually tolerant and free-thinking, and my mother too was unusually lively in her thinking. A born rebel, there was nothing she loved more than to burst a balloon. As for me, I started off, first as the family tsaddik – awfully concerned with God and my Jewishness (though always strangely at odds with other Jews) – then the family dissident-intellectual. By young adulthood, you would have found me somewhere on the Zionist left – unquestioning in my support for the Jewish state but wishing it would not behave quite so badly and stop embarrassing me in front of my friends. However, when it came to the Holocaust, my faith was unwavering….

But how could the Holocaust not be true? by Paul Eisen

How could the Holocaust not be true?  How could such a delusion and deception have taken place?  How could all those survivors be so wrong in their testimonies?  How could all those perpetrators be so wrong in their confessions?  How could all those documents, unspecific as they are, have been falsified?  Arthur Butz called his groundbreaking revisionist study “The Hoax of the Twentieth Century”, but a hoax of this size and nature just defies belief.  Conspiracy theories rarely convince, nor do those who propagate them, so surely the sheer absurdity of the revisionists’ claim tells us all we need to know.  So, if revisionism is to have any credibility at all, it must demonstrate how, if false, the Holocaust narrative, as we know it, came to be.

A Brief History of how the Masters of Make-Believe made the world believe in Death Camps
Auschwitz as we know it is a Hollywood creation

Today’s Hollywood Jews are the heirs of the original crop of wartime Hollywood producers and directors who were called into service by the U.S. Army to “document” the concentration camps. Although they were not allowed into Auschwitz-Birkenau or Majdanek which were under the tight control of the Soviet Union, they actually had better film-making opportunities at the camps located in Germany proper which had suffered from intense American bombardment. With supply lines and infrastructure smashed to pieces, horrific scenes in these camps caused by hunger, poor hygiene and disease were not hard to find in 1945.

To tell the story, let’s go back to the beginning when George C. Marshall, U.S. Army Chief of Staff, called upon award-winning Hollywood director Frank Capra to head a special section on morale to explain to soldiers “why the hell they’re in uniform.” Marshall explained to Capra that these were not to be “propaganda films like those created by the Nazis and Japan, but sensitive and objective troop information films.” That, however, they were not.

The Revisionists’ Total Victory on the Historical and Scientific Level
By Robert Faurisson

robert faurisson
Robert Faurisson

“The rising flood, particularly on the Internet, that is bringing to the world’s knowledge the spectacular achievements of historical revisionism is not suddenly going to halt its advance or return towards its source.” – Robert Faurisson

In France and in the rest of the world historians and specialists of “the Holocaust” no longer know what to answer to the revisionists’ arguments. And to speak only of my own case, which has been going on since 1978 (that is, for some thirty-seven years), never has my country’s justice system, despite the tireless requests by self-righteous associations to rule against me on the substance of my writings or statements, been able to note therein the least trace of anyrashness, negligence, deliberate ignorance, falsehood, falsification or lying. My adversaries, rich and powerful though they may be, have never succeeded in getting our judges to convict me on the merits of the conclusions reached through my research work which, for over half a century, has focused on what is commonly called “the genocide of the Jews”, “the Nazi gas chambers” and “the six million (or nearly)” Jewish victims of the Third Reich. At most, at the end countless cases I have lost suits (whether as plaintiff or defendant) or been found guilty mainly 1) for a malevolence, supposed but not demonstrated, towards the Jews, 2) for breaking the gayssotine(the Fabius-Gayssot or Faurisson Act, legislation of convenience specifically targeting the findings of my research) or 3) by virtue of the “good faith” (sic) of individuals like Léon Poliakov or Robert Badinter, even though found to be at fault by the judges themselves…

Bill Clinton, in a rare picture with his pants up.

Whenever an important skype bites the bullet, you can be sure that all the cucked politicians will form a procession to go grovel before God’s chosen.

Bill Clinton is a man who’d entire career was devoted to serving the Jew. He would be nobody if it wasn’t for his (((backers))). The only politician more corrupt than Bill in recent memory would be his own wife, Hillary.

These two don’t breathe before asking Soros or Bibi for permission.

Politico:

Bill Clinton, in Jerusalem for former Israeli President Shimon Peres’ funeral, met with the country’s prime minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, on Thursday evening.

A video released on Netanyahu’s YouTube channel shows the former U.S. president greeting Netanyahu and his wife, Sara, as well as posing for photographs and signing a guestbook in front of the American and Israeli flags. Clinton seems to compliment Netanyahu’s tribute to Peres in the video.

“Of all of the things that have been tweeted out, yours was my favorite,” said Clinton, whose wife, Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton, met with Netanyahu in the U.S. on Sunday.

Can you imagine what it’s like to be Bill Clinton?

I mean, to enthusiastically suck up to your racial enemy, like a lap dog?

ap768592258985

Yeah, you better look down.

This is a man whose soul has been hollowed out and replaced with mindless servitude.

Bill Clinton also sat down to chat with Netanyahu and others during the visit, according to the clip.

President Barack Obama will also attend the funeral, where he is expected to speak, along with a large delegation of U.S. officials and members of Congress.

3dc0d17018510e32f54caccc3e801d6f104f318421e3546b45bdc64dc04af521

The only question, really, is if slick Willie received some instructions from Bibi for Hillary. The campaign isn’t going well. And the Jews know that if the Glorious Leader follows up on his promise to stop giving Israel free military support, their little scheme to control the middle eastern is going to come to a dramatic end.

And they’re not going to stand for that.

So you can be sure that there’s a lot of back-room dealings to undermine Trump’s bid for presidency.

But the rats can scheme all they want; their plots can only pour oil on the flames of our discontent.

‘Feel Good Hoax’: How US Propaganda Works in the Syrian War

21st Century Wire says…

One thing is certain about the War on Syria: the propaganda war being waged by the west and all of its agencies, from government to corporate media, to charities and third sector NGOs – is much larger and more pernicious than anything seen in modern history.The effort is extremely well-financed (to the tune of hundreds of millions of dollars at least), and well-coordinated – too well in fact for many journalists to follow, many of whom have been seduced by multimillion dollar documentary productions of Netflix and endlessly cycled staged video clips and still images on networks like CNN and the BBC, and in newspapers like the New York Times, the Washington Post, The Times and The Guardian too. 

Why so much effort, and why the desperation by the west? What’s at stake? The credibility of the Obama government, the Erdogan government, the Cameron/May governments, the Hollande government, NATO, the UN, western relations with Saudi Arabia, as well as a gas pipeline for Qatar into Europe, hundreds of billions in defense and ‘reconstruction’ contracts, Soros’s billions invested in various ‘projects’, the Golan Heights, Eurasian dominance and checkmate of Russia, and the supremacy of Smart Power as a geopolitical weapon of choice for the Atlanticist bloc leaning forward into the 21st century – to mention only a few items.

For the nation of Syria, the stakes are even higher – the survival of their country.

So as we can see, there is a lot at stake for west and their business partners, and it should go without saying that they will do almost anything to take the many spoils of this latest war…

Consortium News

Manipulation of public perception has risen to a new level with the emergence of powerful social media. Multibillion-dollar corporate giants, such as Facebook, Twitter and Google, influence public perceptions, often via payments for “boosting” Facebook posts, paid promotion of Tweets, and biased results from search engines.

Marketing and advertising companies use social media to promote their clients, but so do U.S. foreign policy managers who hire or enlist these companies to influence public perceptions to support U.S. foreign policy goals.

The results of similar media manipulation can be seen in the widespread misunderstanding of the conflict in Syria, amid the demonization of the Syrian government and leadership and the skillful use of social media by anti-government activists. Influenced by both mainstream and this alternative media, most people in the West do not know that Bashar al-Assad remains popular with many Syrians. Nor do they realize that Assad won an election two years ago. For example, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton described making sure that Twitter was primed for street protests in Iran following the 2009 election, ready to spread and manage news of protests following the election and the killing of a young woman, which was blamed on the Iranian government although the circumstances of her death were murky. [Hard Choices hardback, p 423]

There were three contestants in the Syrian presidential election of June 2014. Turnout was 73 percent of the registered voters, with 88 percent voting for Assad. In Beirut, the streets were clogged with tens of thousands of Syrian refugees marching through the city to vote at the Syrian Embassy. Hundreds of Syrian citizens living in the U.S. and other Western countries flew to Syria to vote because Syrian Embassies in Washington and other Western capitals were shut down.

While Secretary of State John Kerry was condemning the Syrian election as a “farce” before it had even happened, a marketing company known as The Syria Campaign waged a campaign to block knowledge of the Syrian election. Along with demonizing President Assad, the company launched a campaign which led to Facebook censoring information about the Syrian election.

Incubating Propaganda

The Syria Campaign was created by a larger company named “Purpose,” which – according to its website – “incubated”. The Syria Campaign. The company’s website says, “Purpose creates new movements, brands and organizations from the ground up to address complex global challenges. We apply this experience as movement creators to our work with progressive companies, nonprofits and philanthropies, helping them to put purpose and participation at the heart of what they do.”

The “White Helmets” are marketed in the West as civilian volunteers doing rescue work. On Sept. 22, it was announced that the Right Livelihood Award , the so-called “Alternative Nobel Prize,” is being given to the U.S./U.K.-created White Helmets “for their outstanding bravery, compassion and humanitarian engagement in rescuing civilians from the destruction of the Syrian civil war.” The major achievement of The Syria Campaign has been the branding and promotion of the “White Helmets,” also known as “Syria Civil Defense,” which began with a British military contractor, James LeMesurier, giving some rescue training to Syrians in Turkey with funding provided by the U.S. and U.K. The group stole this name from the REAL Syria Civil Defense as documented in this recent report from Aleppo.

SEE ALSO: WHO ARE SYRIA’S WHITE HELMETS

But the White Helmets are largely a propaganda tool promoting Western intervention against Syria. Unlike a legitimate rescue organization such as the Red Cross or Red Crescent, the “White Helmets” only work in areas controlled by the armed opposition. As shown in this video, the White Helmets pick up the bodies of individuals executed by the terrorists; they claim to be unarmed but are not; and they falsely claim to be neutral.

Many of the videos from Al Qaeda/terrorist-dominated areas of Syria have the “White Helmets” logo because the White Helmets work in alliance with these extremist groups as primarily a media marketing tool to raise public support for continuing the support to the armed opposition as well as the demonization of the Syrian government. 

The Rights Livelihood press release said the White Helmets “remain outspoken in calling for an end to hostilities in the country.” But that is false, too. The White Helmets actively call for U.S./NATO military intervention through a “No Fly Zone,” which would begin with attacks upon and destruction of government anti-aircraft positions and aircraft.

A Major Act of War

Taking over the skies above another country is an act of war that would require a major U.S. military operation, according to senior American generals.

1-Martin-Dempsey

The New York Times reported that in 2012 General Martin E. Dempsey, chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, told the White House that imposing a no-fly zone in Syria would require up to 70,000 American servicemen to destroy Syria’s antiaircraft system and then impose round-the-clock control over Syrian airspace.

General Carter Ham, former commander of the U.S. Africa Command who oversaw the aerial attacks on Libya in 2011, said on CBS News that “I worry sometimes that, when people say ‘impose a no-fly zone,’ there is this almost antiseptic view that this is an easily accomplished military task. It’s extraordinarily difficult. …

“It first entails — we should make no bones about it. It first entails killing a lot of people and destroying the Syrian air defenses and those people who are manning those systems. And then it entails destroying the Syrian air force, preferably on the ground, in the air if necessary. This is a violent combat action that results in lots of casualties and increased risk to our own personnel.”

In other words, an appeal for a “no-fly zone” is not a call for a non-violent solution. It is seeking a bloody act of war by the United States against Syria, a nation that poses no threat to America. It also would almost surely be carried out in violation of international law since a United Nations Security Council resolution would face vetoes from Russia and probably China.

Also, the White Helmets have never criticized or called for the end of funding to extremist organizations including Nusra Front, Al Qaeda’s Syrian affiliate. On the contrary, White Helmets are generally embedded with this organization which is defined as “terrorist” by even the U.S., which is likely why the head of the White Helmets, Raed Saleh, was denied entry to the U.S.

The foreign and marketing company origins of the White Helmets were exposed over 1½ years ago – and since then, writer Vanessa Beeley has revealed the organization in more depth in articles such as “Who Are the White Helmets?” and “War by Way of Deception.” 

Despite these exposés, understanding of the White Helmets is limited, with many liberal and progressive people uncritically accepting the propaganda and misinformation about Syria. Much of the progressive media has effectively blocked or censored critical examinations amid a flood of propaganda about “barrel bombs” dropped by the “brutal dictator” and his “regime.” 

In the last week, Netflix started showing a 40-minute documentary movie about the “White Helmets” that amounts to a promotional video. A substantial portion of it takes place in Turkey where we see trainees in hotel rooms making impassioned phone calls to inquire about their families in Syria. 

The “family values” theme is evident throughout, a good marketing angle. The political message of the video is also clear: after a bombing attack, “It’s the Russians …. they say they are fighting ISIS but they are targeting civilians.”

The movie includes video previously promoted by the White Helmets such as the “Miracle Baby” rescue, an incident that may or may not have been staged. The video includes self-promoting proclamations such as “You are real heroes.” While no doubt there are some real rescues in the midst of war, many of the videos purporting to show the heroes at work have an unrealistic and contrived look to them as revealed here.

Tricking Progressives

“Alternative media” in the West has echoed mainstream media regarding the Syria conflict. The result is that many progressive individuals and groups are confused or worse. For example, the activist group CodePink recently issued a media release promoting the Netflix White Helmets propaganda video.

The White Helmets video is produced by Grain Media and Violet Films/Ultra-Violet Consulting, which advertises itself as a marketing corporation specializing in social media management, grant writing, crowd building and campaign implementation. The only question is who paid them to produce this video…

There is growing resistance to this manipulation and deception. In response to a petition to give the Nobel Peace Prize to the White Helmets, there is a counter petition at Change.org. Following the Right Livelihood Awards’ announcement, there will soon be a petition demanding retraction of the award to the White Helmets.

The story of the White Helmets is principally a “feel good” hoax to manipulate public perception about the conflict in Syria and continue the drive for “regime change.” That’s why big money was paid to “Purpose” to “incubate” The Syria Campaign to brand and promote the White Helmets using Facebook, Twitter, etc. That’s why more big money was paid to create a self-promotional documentary. 

The judges at Rights Livelihood were probably influenced by the documentary since critical examination of facts around Syria is so rare. It’s a sad commentary on the media. As veteran war correspondent Stephen Kinzer recently wrote, “Coverage of the Syrian war will be remembered as one of the most shameful episodes in the history of the American press.”

“STOP THE WAR IN SYRIA: Dont be Fooled by Propaganda” ~ Veterans for Peace

Omran pencil bw
Veterans for Peace

“Recently, a compelling photo of a bleeding and seemingly confused young Syrian boy seated in an ambulance in Aleppo was widely distributed and commented upon in domestic and international news media.  In response, some journalists have called for the Obama Administration to “take action,” including bombing government military targets in Syria.”

Veterans For Peace feels great sympathy for all of the victims in Syria, and for all who have lost family members, friends and loved ones in this terrible war.

Many of us are veterans of military conflicts that were sold to the American public with emotionally compelling but misleading messages and images. We recognize and denounce the manipulation of selected images of human suffering as propaganda used to justify yet further military violence, which will only lead to more death and suffering.

Why are we not seeing images of suffering on both sides of the war in Syria?

Why is an image of an injured boy used to call for yet more violence?

The “no fly zones” and “safe zones” that some pundits are calling for in Syria are acts of war that would lead to more violence and destruction, as happened in Libya, a nation that was virtually destroyed by a so-called “humanitarian intervention.”

“No-fly zones” and “safe zones” would put U.S. Air Force pilots in direct military confrontation with Russian Air Force pilots, leading to a dangerous military escalation between two nuclear powers – an existential threat to all life on earth.

The widely seen photo of the young Syrian boy is just the latest and most graphic example of the psychological warfare being waged against public opinion in the U.S. and worldwide.

Almost every day, the media misrepresents the conflict in Syria as a fight between democracy-loving “rebels” and the “brutal dictator Assad.”  What is actually happening in Syria is foreign intervention to destroy the last secular, multi-religious nation in the Middle East.

Violent extremist groups are receiving arms, training, and support from the United States, and billions of dollars from Saudi Arabia and Qatar, two undemocratic monarchies who have their own reasons for seeking “regime change” in Syria.

We believe that the only way to resolve the crisis in Syria and to assist the victims of this conflict is to end the fighting, not to escalate it.

The Syrian people have the right to elect their leaders and to determine their own future.

vets for peace

We call on the United States government to cease all military, political and economic assistance to armed opposition groups in Syria and to take actions to pressure US allies to do the same.

Veterans For Peace further calls for an end to all economic sanctions against Syria, especially of medicines, including much needed cancer medicines.

We call on the U.S. government to provide massive humanitarian assistance for the millions of Syrian refugees, and to allow more Syrian refugees into the United States.

The Syrian Government has the right to defend itself from foreign aggression and the “regime change” schemes of the United States and its allies. 

We call on the all parties to do their utmost to avoid killing innocent civilians.

It is time to bring the Syrian war to an end.

It is time to begin the hard work of healing the wounds of the terrible war that has been imposed upon the people of Syria.  We must take responsibility for the role of our own government.

We must allow the people of Syria and the Middle East to live in peace”

Vanessa Beeley on RT: ‘Terrorist Factions Have Been Imposed on Syria by US-NATO-GCC Coalition’

21st Century Wire says…

International tensions around Syria have reached a fever pitch following the recent attack on a UN Aid Convoy near Aleppo, and also the recent massacre carried out via a US Coalition airstrike which killed over 70 Syrian Army soldiers and wounding a further 100. Still, Washington, led by regime change hawks John Kerry and Samantha Power, claims that everything is “Russia’s fault” and “the Syrian regime’s fault” – despite overwhelming evidence to the contrary. 

21WIRE special contributor Vanessa Beeley spoke to RT International today about these, and other urgent aspects unfolding in the Syrian Conflict, including the exposure of terrorist-embedded and western-funded faux ‘NGOs’ the White Helmets and Aleppo Media Centre.Watch:

WHO ARE SYRIA’S WHITE HELMETS (terrorist linked)?

21st Century
Vanessa Beeley
21st Century Wire

Who are the White Helmets? This is a question that everyone should be asking themselves.

A hideous murder of a rising star in UK politics, Jo Cox MP, has just sent shock waves across the world. Within hours of her death, a special fund was established in her name to raise money for 3 causes. One of those causes is the Syrian White Helmets.

Are we seeing a cynical and obscene exploitation of Jo Cox’s murder to revive the flagging credibility of a US State Department & UK Foreign Office asset on the ground in Syria, created and sustained as first responders for the US and NATO Al Nusra/Al Qaeda forces?

white helmet infographic (2)
FOLLOW THE MONEY: The White Helmets are just one component of the new NGO Complex.

If this is the case, and I fear it is, the depravity of our government, the US government, the state led media and associated Syria Campaign support groups have reached a new level of perversion of Humanity. The White Helmets have been demonstrated to be a primarily US and NATO funded organisation embedded in Al Nusra and ISIS held areas exclusively.

This is an alleged “non-governmental” organisation, the definition of an NGO, that thus far has received funding from at least three major NATO governments, including $23 million from theUS Government and $29 million (£19.7 million) from the UK Government, $4.5 million (€4 million) from the Dutch Government. In addition, it receives material assistance and training funded and run by a variety of other EU Nations.

A request has been put into the EU Secretary General to provide all correspondence relating to the funding and training of the White Helmets. By law this information must be made transparent and available to the public.

There has been a concerted campaign by a range of investigative journalists to expose the true roots of these Syria Civil Defence operatives, known as the White Helmets.  The most damning statement, however, did not come from us, but from their funders and backers in the US State Department who attempted to explain the US deportation of the prominent White Helmet leader,Raed Saleh, from Dulles airport on the 18th April 2016.

“It was unclear whether Mr. Saleh’s name might have shown up on a database, fed by a variety of intelligence and security agencies and intended to guard against the prospect of terrorism suspects slipping into the country.” ~ New York Times

Mark Toner, State Department spokesperson:

“And any individual – again, I’m broadening my language here for specific reasons, but any individual in any group suspected of ties or relations with extremist groups or that we had believed to be a security threat to the United States, we would act accordingly. But that does not, by extension, mean we condemn or would cut off ties to the group for which that individual works for.”


So we come back to the initial question.  Why is the tragic death of a passionate and ambitious politician being exploited? Why are all political parties in the UK endorsing the Jo Cox fund to provide financial assistance for an organisation the UK Government is already funding and training?

Why are the public once more being used as political pawns to further our government’s imperialist objectives inside Syria and their covert, illegal, proxy intervention of a sovereign nation via both terrorist forces and phony humanitarian first responders?

Phillip hammond meets white helmets
Phillip Hammond, UK Foreign Secretary meeting White Helmets in southern Turkey

The White Helmets are perhaps being demonstrated to be the most crucial component of the US and NATO shadow state building inside Syria.  Led by the US and UK this group is essential to the propaganda stream that facilitates the continued media and political campaign against the elected Syrian government and permits the US and NATO to justify their regime of crippling economic and humanitarian sanctions against the Syrian people.

If this latest mechanised ‘NGO’ blueprint is successful then we could see it being re-deployed as key to future neo-colonialist projects. The White Helmets are a direct intra-venus line into the terrorist enclaves within Syria, acting as a conduit for information, equipment and medical support to maintain the US NATO forces.

Is this the future of warfare, is this the “swarming” outlined in a 2000 report produced by theRAND Corporation and entitled: Swarming and the Future of Conflict.

“The emergence of a military doctrine based on swarming pods and clusters requires that defense policymakers develop new approaches to connectivity and control and achieve a new balance between the two. Far more than traditional approachesto battle, swarming clearly depends upon robust information flows. Securing these flows, therefore, can be seen as a necessary condition for successful swarming.”

[Update 22/6/2016] An important “previously unpublished interview with Jo Cox” was released today by Adam Barnett.  In this interview Jo Cox makes a clear statement regarding the way the UK Government should be maximising the use of their assets, the White Helmets, inside Syria:

“Second thing: many organisations, whether it’s the White Helmets or others, have got really creative ideas about how to operate under the siege and civil war conditions. They’ve got really interesting ideas about channelling money, getting aid in, thinking creatively about how they operate, which DfID [Department for International Development] should be listening to. [emphasis added]

And then the third thing is about giving airtime to civil society groups, making sure that they get more time on panels– and making sure this is representative of the diversity of civil society views as well, whether that’s women’s groups, or the White Helmets, or NGOs, or just doctors or people who are literally trying to get on with making society function in response to the humanitarian crisis.”

Is this why we are seeing what is, in effect, crowd funding for  proxy war? Do we really want to look back and be “judged by history” for enabling conflict and state terrorism, violating international law and invading sovereign nations.  Are we prepared to accept the consequences of such actions, consequences that should be taken by our governments alone but are now being diffused outwards to the general public.  Is this an attempt by our government to disassociate themselves from their criminal actions?

To condense our research on the Syria White Helmets, we have collated all relevant articles and interviews below.  We condemn wholeheartedly any senseless murder but we recommend that there is serious public and political re-evauluation of the morality of funding a US NATO organisation established to further “regime change” objectives in Syria.

Mass murder is being committed across Syria and the region by US and NATO proxy terrorist militants. Funding the White Helmets will serve to prolong the suffering and bloodshed of the Syrian people.

Saudis reject US 9/11 act as threat to sovereignty, Russia says it damages international law

Saudi Arabia has rejected the Congressional approval of the act that would allow the families of victims of the 9/11 attacks to sue Riyadh for damages, claiming it weakens the sovereign immunity of the nation. Russia has slammed the legislation as undermining international law.

According to a Saudi Foreign Ministry source, who spoke with the state-run Saudi Press Agency, the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act (JASTA) will contribute to the “erosion” of the principle of sovereign immunity, one of the cornerstones of conduct in international relations. The law, the source claimed, will also have a negative impact on all nations, including the United States.

The diplomat stressed that many other nations and experts oppose JASTA because of the “dangers” the bill represents, as seen by the opposition posed to it by President Barack Obama and the US secretary of defense, Ash Carter.

The official, however, expressed “hope that wisdom will prevail and that Congress will take the necessary steps to correct this legislation in order to avoid the serious unintended consequences that may ensue.

On Wednesday,  in a 348-77 vote chose to override the presidential veto which Obama had used last week.

Also known as House Resolution 3815, JASTA creates an exception to the sovereign immunity law introduced in 1976, allowing US citizens to sue foreign countries for acts of terrorism that kill Americans on US soil.

The sovereign immunity law had been invoked to shield Saudi Arabia from lawsuits over the September 11, 2001, terrorist attacks.

Fifteen of the 19 men who hijacked commercial airliners and used them as missiles to target the World Trade Center and the Pentagon on that date were subjects of the Gulf kingdom. Riyadh has denied backing the hijackers.


Earlier in September, the Saudi-led Gulf Cooperation Council expressed “deep concern” about the bill, with Secretary General Abdullatif al-Zayani calling it “contrary to the foundations and principles of relations between states.

Established in 1981, the GCC consists of Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, and the United Arab Emirates. In a separate statement, the government of Qatar said JASTA “violates international law, particularly the principle of sovereign equality between states,” according to Reuters.

Such laws will negatively affect the international efforts and international cooperation to combat terrorism,” said the UAE foreign minister, Sheikh Abdullah bin Zayed Al Nahyan, according to state news agency WAM.

Two of the 9/11 hijackers were Emirati.


The Russian Foreign Ministry on Friday slammed Washington’s passing of JASTA.

Washington has once again demonstrated total disregard for international law, legalizing the possibility of filing lawsuits in US courts against states suspected of supporting terrorism,” the Foreign Ministry’s Information and Press Department said in a statement, as cited by RIA Novosti.

The United States, where many politicians have come to believe in their own ‘uniqueness,’ insistently continues along the line of extending its jurisdiction to the entire world, disregarding the notions of state sovereignty and common sense,” the statement reads further.

The Russian Foreign Ministry also pointed to the fact that “it reached the point that in this case, even the administration, which is usually willing to juristically blackmail other countries, was against [JASTA].

ISIS & Al-Nusra not in Damascus: Kremlin on major outcome of Russia’s campaign in Syria

Damascus, Syria © Omar Sanadiki
The main result of Russia’s operation in Syria is that Islamic State and Al-Nusra Front terrorists have been kept out of Damascus, Kremlin spokesperson Dmitry Peskov said.

Russian airstrikes on radical Islamists in Syria over the past year have ensured that “neither Islamic State, nor Al-Qaeda nor the Nusra Front are now sitting in Damascus,” Peskov said in a conference call with reporters.

He noted, however, that assessing the success of the ongoing operation is the task of military experts.

Responding to a question on whether the Russian leadership anticipated that the operation in Syria would last more than a year, Peskov said that no time frame was outlined when the initial decision to send aircraft to Syria was made.

At the same time, the main goal was declared to help Syrians and the Syrian Army in the fight against terrorists, who at the start of [our] operation occupied most of the country,” he pointed out.

Peskov also commented on the recent reports by the Syrian Observatory for Human Rights, which earlier in the day said some 3,800 civilians had been killed as a result of Russian Air Force operations in the country.

We do not view the information about what is happening in Syria from an organization stationed in the United Kingdom as valid,” Peskov said.

According to various reports, the total number of fatalities in the conflict ranges from 290,000 to 470,000 people. Over 4 million people have fled the country and some 6.5 million people are internally displaced. An estimated 13.5 million people inside Syria are in need of urgent humanitarian assistance, including 6 million children, according to the latest  by UNICEF.

Syria has been engulfed in civil war since 2011, with the government fighting a number of rebel groups in addition to radicals such as Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) and Al-Nusra Front (Jabhat Al-Nusra), recently ‘rebranded’ as Fatah al-Sham.

Russia began its anti-terrorism campaign in the Middle Eastern country following a request from Syrian President Bashar Assad in September 2015. The operation was officially concluded in March. However, a part of the Russian forces remains in Syria to assist the country’s authorities with military and humanitarian tasks.

Earlier this week, Peskov said Russia will continue its military operation in Syria. He also expressed Russia’s readiness to continue the dialogue with the US regarding joint actions to combat terrorists in the country, despite the recent rift between the two co-chairs of the Syria Support Group, or SSG. Washington, which supports the so-called ‘moderate opposition’ in Syria, previously promised to separate rebels from the Al-Nusra Front terrorist organization, but has not yet lived up to that obligation.

Relations were also marred by the US-led coalition’s bombing of Syrian government forces’ positions near the eastern city of Deir ez-Zor on September 17. The incident dealt a serious blow to the Syrian ceasefire deal, which Moscow and Washington agreed to earlier this month, with the Syrian Army General Command at the time saying the airstrike “paved the way” for Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) militants. Washington acknowledged the airstrike and even apologized for the mistake.

Also, on September 19, a UN humanitarian convoy consisting of 31 trucks was attacked while heading to Aleppo. According to the Red Cross, 20 civilians and one aid worker died as a result. Initial reports by the organization claimed the convoy had been targeted by an airstrike. The US State Department was quick to blame Damascus and Moscow for the attack. The Russian Defense Ministry, however, stated that Russian and Syrian warplanes did not launch airstrikes on the aid convoy, with Moscow saying that only militants who control the area had information regarding its location.

French fighter jets take off on mission against ISIS stronghold in Mosul, Iraq

At least eight fighter jets began flying off French aircraft carrier Charles de Gaulle in anti-terrorism operations in Iraq’s second largest city of Mosul. Officers insist this does not constitute an offensive to retake to Mosul.

It was not, however, immediately clear whether the French Rafale jets were deployed to conduct military airstrikes or to carry out surveillance operations.

Despite reports of France planning to launch airstrikes, a French defense official told AP that the mission “in no way”marked the start of an offensive in Mosul, stressing that the ministry would not give further details for security reasons.

The jets took off from the Charles de Gaulle aircraft carrier on Friday in the eastern Mediterranean for a mission against Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL), AFP and AP reported. An AFP photographer on the flight deck said he saw as many as eight jets taking off from the carrier.

Meanwhile, French radio station RTL reported that as many as 24 warplanes will participate in Friday’s operations with sorties every three minutes. Each of the aircraft is supplied with four 250kg (551lb) laser-guided bombs, it said.

Over the past week, French planes carried out as many as 32 missions and destroyed four terrorist targets with airstrikes and ground support from Iraqi forces, AP reported citing French military.

The 38,000-tonne Charles de Gaulle aircraft was sent to the region earlier in September. Powered by two nuclear reactors, it has more than 1,900 crew members. This is the third time the ship has taken part in military operations since February 2015 providing support to the US-led anti-terrorism coalition.

On Thursday, the UN said that at least 700,000 people in Mosul would be in need of assistance once the assault on the city begins.

“Mosul has the potential to be one the largest… disasters of many, many years,” warned Bruno Geddo, the United Nation Refugee Agency’s main representative in Iraq.

Washington earlier said it would send 600 extra troops to Iraq to train local forces to help recapture Mosul.

Iraq’s second largest city Mosul has been under jihadist control since June 2014 when IS seized vast areas in the Middle East. Since that time, Iraqi forces have managed to regain large swaths of territory and are currently preparing to carry out an offensive with the help of air and artillery support aimed at retaking Mosul. US and Iraqi officials said the operation is due to take place in mid-October.

France has also been involved in providing support to the US-led anti-terrorism coalition in Syria. In June, the French Defense Ministry announced it had deployed special forces on the ground in northern Syria to advise rebels and help them fight Islamic State.

“The offensive at Manbij is clearly being backed by a certain number of states including France. It’s the usual support – it’s advisory,” a French Defense Ministry official told AFP referring to operations aimed at recapturing a key strategic town occupied by IS. Manbij is considered a key waypoint between the Turkish border and the jihadist stronghold of Raqqa.

Int’l MH17 crash investigation ‘politically deficient, defective by process’

© Maxim Zmeyev
The Dutch-led investigation into the MH17 crash was politically motivated; its goal was to determine why Russia was responsible instead of finding out who actually downed the plane, says Joaquin Flores, an Editor-in-Chief at Fort Russ news.

The Dutch-led criminal investigation into the ill-fated flight MH17 has concluded the missile which downed the passenger jet came from a rebel-held area in eastern Ukraine. According to the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) a Buk missile system was brought from Russia.

The JIT consists of investigators and experts from the Netherlands, Belgium, Australia, Malaysia and Ukraine.

RT: What do you make of the investigation results? Are you surprised?

Joaquin Flores: We are not at all surprised by the results. The very problem with the JIT from its genesis was that it was put together by NATO as a result of a failure to actually create a truly independent inquiry team which was rejected at the level of the UN Security Council, once it became clear the point of any investigation was going to be to determine how it was that the Russian Federation was responsible instead of looking at the first question, ‘who did it?’ So, that was the problem from the very start. It was a geopolitically motivated investigation and it was flawed. Of course, you have a conflict of interest here, right at the start because the Netherlands is a NATO country. And NATO has been actively involved in this conflict on the side of the Ukrainian government. So, we are not at all surprised by the results and it is politically deficient, and by process it is also defective.

RT: This is meant to be an independent report, isn’t it? And surely, you would hope that politics stayed out of the report. Do you think this is the case?

JF: It can’t be the case. We know that what happened was there was an original proposal to create a truly independent inquiry into this. And once it became clear that it was going to be politicized and had the intention of predetermining guilt of the Russian Federation which is not a party to the conflict – this was a critical flaw. And the real victims here are the families of the deceased in this tragedy…

‘Such an approach is not scientific’

Dutch journalist Joost Niemoller, the author of ‘MH-17: The Cover-up Deal’ said the investigation has not been objective and he sees many problems with the way it was carried out.

“My main criticism is that the investigation was organized by the Dutch in very close collaboration with the Ukrainian government. When you do objective research, you would say that it is possible the Ukrainians did it. And now that is not possible anymore because the Ukrainians are researching themselves,” he told RT.

“What you see here is that the main evidence presented is the tapes with all those conversations …And when I asked what the source of these tapes is, they answered that it is Ukrainian Secret Service. And when I asked are there other sources, they said “no”. I don’t believe that you could take it seriously,” said Niemoller.

Speaking about the conclusions of the investigation, which suggests Russians are responsible, he said the problem since the very beginning was that investigators thought they knew what happened and “now they are looking for evidence” for that.

“This is not a scientific way of working. You have to check out all possible scenarios and you have to keep those scenarios on the table all the time,” he told RT.

Facts on the Ground: Syrian SAA Forces with Support of Russia Liberating Aleppo, against the “US Supported Terrorists”

This carefully documented report by political correspondent Marwa Osman confirms that the US is supporting and arming the Al Qaeda affiliated rebels  which are the object of the Syrian government’s endeavor to Liberate Aleppo, with the support of Russia. 

Crimes against humanity are being committed by Al Qaeda with the support of its sponsors including the US, Britain, Turkey and Saudi Arabia. 

The Western media reports accusing Russia of deliberately targeting civilians are fabricated. 

The Syrian government operation is directed against the various terrorist entities with the support of Russia.

America’s air raids launched by Obama in 2014 under a fake counterterrorism label are intent upon protecting rather defeating the ISIS – Daesh terrorists.

The oil CEO’s comments ignored some of the fundamental reasons behind ongoing Native American opposition.

The CEO of North Dakota’s biggest oil company said that simply paying off native communities with oil-related work would defuse the ongoing standoff against the US$3.7 billion Dakota Access pipeline. Native American communities say that economics are not a factor when faced with the irreparable damage that the pipeline.

Military-Style Raid Ends Native Prayer Against Dakota Pipeline

James J. Volker, CEO of Whiting Petroleum Corp, said that economic opportunities such as oil service contracts and jobs related to the oil industry, such as water hauling, could be given to Native American-owned companies.

“We, as an industry, would like to see them provide those services … It does provide a better standard of living for them, it does provide a direct tie to the energy business and makes them and their tribal leaders more inclined to have more energy development,” said Volker, speaking to the Independent Petroleum Association of America on Tuesday.

Thousands have protested in support of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, who say that the 1,168-mile pipeline from North Dakota to Illinois will run through sacred sites and damage the environment, including local water supplies, with the Missouri River as a foremost site among those that could potentially face ruin in the event of a rupture. The tribe says that their rights have been violated and that they were not adequately consulted on the project.

Obama Wants Government Consultations with 567 Native American Tribes

Over 300 native tribes, along with environmentalists, have come together in opposition to the pipeline in what has been described as the largest Native American mobilizations in decades.

Dave Archambault II, chairman of the Standing Rock Sioux Tribe, said that while he appreciated Volker’s suggestions, money did not come into the equation and the pipeline would have immensely adverse direct effects on his people, trumping any sort of potential short-term financial gains.

“It’s going to be very difficult for us to allow this line to come through just because some Indigenous-owned company may benefit,” Archambault said. “If this pipeline goes through, we will be the first to pay the cost.”

Volker said that he was sensitive to Native American concerns over the pipeline and that he “wouldn’t want necessarily a pipeline to go through the cemetery where all my relatives are buried.”

Construction of small sections of the pipeline located on federal lands have been halted, making up 3 percent of the overall project, but the construction continues at other sites. Protesters, however, have vowed to continue their opposition until the project is suspended permanently.

Lummi Nation Donates Salmon to Dakota Pipeline Resistance

The third largest tribe in Washington state, the Lummi nation lives mostly off of the salmon industry.

The Lummi nation will donate salmon to the Standing Rock Sioux nation and others leading the fight against the Dakota Access pipeline, driving over 1,000 miles to the site of the encampments Thursday.

OPINION:
Tribal Dakota Pipeline Resistance the Start of Something Bigger

The pipeline, which would transport over half a million barrels of crude oil from Illinois to North Dakota, has met resistance from over 300 nations across the U.S. to protect their sovereignty, treaty-protected lands and the water source for millions downstream.

“It’s a traditional teaching among our people to show caring and love by feeding one another and supporting each other when times get rough,” Josh Phair, who helped with the trip, told the Bellingham Herald.

The Lummi tribe, the third largest in Washington, mostly lives off of the salmon industry but was moved by actions of “these people who are working really hard to protect our water, protect our rights, because what we know as tribal people is that what happens in one part of Indian Country happens to all the other tribal communities in the United States,” Waylon Ballew, who helped pack the salmon, told the Bellingham Herald.

 

A fluctuating gathering of about 5,000 is continuing to camp out on both privately-owned and state-seized land, facing repression from both state and federal law enforcement and private security contractors.

The tribes are trying to delay construction until a federal court rules on pending lawsuits against the pipeline company, which they argue did not engage in meaningful consultations and violates several federal mandates and treaties.

One Torturer to Another: Kissinger Honors Bahrain FM With Award

Published 29 September 2016
Bahrain, which is home to the U.S. Navy’s Fifth Fleet, is infamous for repressing political dissenters.

Former Secretary of State Henry Kissinger—known for orchestrating bloody coups and wars—awarded Bahrain’s Foreign Affairs Minister Shaikh Khalid bin Ahmed Al Khalifa with a Lifetime Achievement Award for economic development and “respect for religious pluralism.” The state official is known for presiding over a bloody military crackdown on Arab Spring protests.

“It was granted to HM the King in recognition of his continued achievements and incessant efforts in all fields, notably in development, respect for religious pluralism in the Kingdom of Bahrain and his interest in bolstering Bahrain-U.S. ties at all levels, making of them an exemplary model of relations among nations, based on strong and clear foundations,” wrote the state Bahrain News Agency Tuesday when Kissinger awarded the prize during the U.S. C3 Summit, held to strengthen ties between the U.S. and Arab countries.

bin Ahmed Al Khalifa, Bahrain’s second-ever foreign minister, honored the king in his acceptance speech and touched on the 120-year-old relationship with the U.S., which is “in constant progress at all levels, particularly in the economic, military and political areas.”

“U.S.-Bahraini ties have underpinned common interests and become the main security-preserving factors in the region and that the trade relations were given a boost with the signing of the FTA in 2005, affirming Bahrain’s readiness to take all possible measures to open up new cooperation horizons for the two friendly people and countries,” he said according to BNA.

WATCH: Protests and police repression continue in Bahrain

Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton met with bin Ahmed Al Khalifa when she was secretary of state and reaffirmed their “time-tested relationship based on mutual interest and mutual respect,” including seeing eye-to-eye on Israel and Iran. In a primary debate, Clinton said that her singular idol is Kissinger, who recently met with Donald Trump to advise him on foreign policy.

Kissinger, 92, played a crucial role in shaping U.S. foreign policy between 1969 and 1977, when the U.S. was at war with Vietnam, Cambodia and Laos, and orchestrated the CIA-backed military coup that ousted the democratically-elected socialist president of Chile, Salvador Allende.

Documents released in 2014 revealed that in 1976, Kissinger planned to launch airstrikes against Havana, strike ports and military installations in Cuba and send Marine battalions to the U.S. naval base in Cuba’s Guantanamo Bay.

Opposition political groups in Bahrain staged large protests during the Arab Spring of 2011, when demonstrators across the Arab world took to the streets calling for greater democracy. The protests in Bahrain were put down when neighboring Saudi Arabia sent troops to restore order.

Political tensions have continued since then in Bahrain, which is home to the U.S. Fifth Fleet.

“This is a country that has subjected its people to imprisonment, torture and even death for daring to desire democracy,” wrote leading Bahraini democracy campaigner Nabeel Rajab, which the U.S. called to be released earlier this month.

Rajab said recent strong U.S. statements on Bahrain’s human rights problems were good “but unless the United States is willing to use its leverage, fine words have little effect.” He urged U.S. President Barack Obama to use American influence to resolve the Yemen conflict.

Emails from Hillary Clinton’s time as secretary of state reveal that her staff helped grant access to Clinton Foundation donors, including the Bahraini al-Khalifa monarchy accused of killing and torturing hundreds of people during the 2011 Arab Spring-inspired uprising there. The monarchy of Bahrain gave the foundation US$32 million.

Holy Land upside down: Record US Aid Comes amid Israeli Settlement Construction Boom

Record US Aid Comes amid Israeli Settlement Construction Boom

Published 14 September 2016
New data shows Israel has increased settlement construction by 40 percent in the first half of 2016.

As the United States approves a US$38 billion military aid package to Israel, the largest in history, Israel is refusing to halt illegal settlement construction—despite stern U.S. statements—with data revealing that construction on occupied land has increased by 40 percent in the first half of 2016 compared to the previous six months.

For Netanyahu Palestinians, Not Israelis, Do ‘Ethnic Cleansing’

Israeli rights organization Peace Now said Wednesday that data released by the Israeli Central Bureau of Statistics shows that since the start of the year Israel built 1,195 units in Jewish settlements across the West Bank.

“Netanyahu is the prime minister of one sector only—the settler sector, which comprises less than 5 percent of the Israeli population,” Peace Now said in the statement, according to the Palestinian news agency Ma’an. “(Netanyahu’s) investments in the settlements do not only come on the expense of the Negev, the Galilee and the rest of Israel but also lead towards a one-state reality.”

The news comes after U.S. President Barack Obama on Wednesday approved a 10-year memorandum of understanding between Israel and the U.S. granting Tel Aviv a yearly US$3.8 billion in military aid, a US$700 million increase on the existing amount.

“Both Prime Minister (Benjamin) Netanyahu and I are confident that the new MoU will make a significant contribution to Israel’s security in what remains a dangerous neighborhood,” Obama said after the signing.

Critics have repeatedly slammed Washington over failing to use leverage from the massive military aid to force Israel to halt settlement construction, which successive U.S. administrations have labeled illegal.

But Netanyahu, the head of the most right-wing government in Israel’s history, has claimed removing settlers from illegal communities in the West Bank would be tantamount “ethnic cleansing.”

Netanyahu’s comments drew criticism from the Obama administration, which labeled them “inappropriate and unhelpful,” but did not affect the lavish package.

Most countries around the world view settlements as illegal.

Greeks on refuge islands feel abandoned by Europe

Increasing tension between locals and refugees stranded on Greek islands, as all sides appeal for help.

Greece has become Europe’s buffer zone as refugees are stranded on the Greek islands [John Psaropoulos/Al Jazeera]

by

John Psaropoulos is an independent journalist based in Athens. His blog is http://www.thenewathenian.com

Chios, Greece – Months after arriving on Chios, Rusde Endris has become fearful. The Syrian man was recently taking an evening walk with his 18-year-old wife on a patch of green across the street from town hall. He says two Greek men approached them and tried to remove her headscarf.

“They had drunk wine. They were talking in Greek. One was a big, tall man. I only wanted to protect my wife,” he says showing knife cuts on his back from the attack.

“One of the men punched her in the eye. She was pregnant and she lost the baby after this,” he says showing a photograph of a Greek hospital report on his mobile phone.

The report, stated that one Fatme Endris had had a miscarriage. “I went to the police but the police here did nothing because it was Greeks who did this.”

‘People are afraid’

Six months since the European Union-Turkey agreement curbed newly arriving refugees on Greece’s eastern Aegean islands, sentiment is beginning to turn against them.

Earlier this month a young Syrian man who calls himself Ali Ali was caught on the wrong side of an anti-migrant demonstration – another recent phenomenon on the island.

“I was in the park with a friend. Some people hit me and the police arrived and separated us. One person threw a rock at my chest and someone else hit my foot with a stick,” he says, showing a bandaged right foot.

Outright violence is still rare, but some islanders are beginning to demand assimilation.

“I am Muslim. I cover my head. They don’t like this cover. Why?” asks Bushra Asheh, an English teacher whose husband was killed when a suicide bomber destroyed their house in Syria.

“When I went to the market, a woman said, ‘Why do you put this?'” pointing to her hijab. “‘It’s not beautiful.’ I said I am Muslim. She made a face like this,” says Asheh, making an unpleasant facial expression.

One of the factors turning islanders against refugees is a spate of petty crimes.

“Five months ago, two 15-year-old girls had their bags ripped off them just across the street. One of them was my goddaughter. It was 8pm. Why do this?” asks Yiorgos Pilioglou, a tyre repair man across the street from one of two tent cities that have sprung up in Chios town. “At some point things will take a bad turn … people are afraid.”

“The police can’t tell me not to go out after 10pm. I am not going to adjust to the migrants. They should adjust to me,” fumes Yiorgos Manaras, who runs a sweet shop nearby.

A few kilometres outside town, villages surrounding the Chios government-sponsored refugee camp complain of home break-ins, missing chickens and dug-up vegetables. The camp sits in and around a disused aluminium moulding plant known by its acronym, VIAL.

In the village of Vavyloi, Apostolos Kambouris says his brother surprised a burglar in his house. “He took a hundred dollar bill and his wife’s good earrings, then tried to escape by jumping out of the first storey window. We didn’t see the man but he was later caught because he broke his leg jumping. He turned out to be an Algerian.”

“You can’t explain to old people whose pension has been cut and who struggle to make co-payments for medicines why others who’ve just arrived on the island as refugees are being fed for free,” says a baker’s shop assistant who declined to be named.

“I understand that this comes from overseas humanitarian organisations but some people don’t. Some people here go hungry,” he says.

Turning points and breaking chaos

Greeks scrambled to feed and clothe refugees as they walked through the Balkans last year. Two events turned that flow into a standing population, altering refugee politics in Greece.

In February, Austria, Slovenia, Serbia and Croatia agreed to register refugees at the border Greece shares with former Yugoslav Macedonia. Overnight, Greece became a buffer zone between the Turkey and the rest of Europe, and its refugee numbers climbed.

The turning point in the frustrations of east Aegean islanders, however, was the EU-Turkeyagreement a month later. Turkey would make an effort to restrain crossings and re-admit those caught on its territorial waters; but those who make it as far as Greek waters are no longer allowed on the Greek mainland, but are confined on the islands of Chios, Lesvos, Samos, Kos and Leros.

The idea was to quickly separate them for either deportation or asylum processing. Asylum applicants are allowed to travel to mainland Greece after their first interview. But both procedures face staffing shortages and progress at a slow pace. Since March, just 578 people have been returned to Turkey under the deal.

The result is that camps built for 7,500 people are already burdened with twice that many, so they are left unlocked, turning these entire islands into massive holding areas. Many have been there for six months.

“They don’t want to be here, we don’t want them here. We’ve become a landfill,” says Chios taxi driver Antonis Patsoulas succinctly.

The difficulty of waiting has caused three inter-ethnic eruptions in the camps.

Last April, about 500 Syrians fled VIAL claiming they were being harassed by Afghans. They occupied Chios’ main port, forcing ferries to dock at another port 40 kilometres away. The disruption to commerce and passenger traffic produced an angry mob which tried to intimidate the Syrians into leaving, prompting police to conduct a more orderly evacuation.

Last July, Pakistani inmates rioted at the processing centre on Leros, ransacking its offices. They had just been shipped in from Athens and assumed they were being deported back to Turkey. Islanders formed a posse to help police guard the camp, and forced volunteer organisations to evacuate.

“They said to us, ‘if you don’t go, you’ll be in trouble,'” says Catharina Kahane, who had worked on the island for months with her charity, Echo100Plus.

Last week, inter-ethnic tensions caused the largest riot to date at the Moria camp on Lesbos, which destroyed two thirds of it and left two thousand people without shelter.

Where is the EU?

The insecurity of islanders is metastasising into political opposition. The mayor of Chios, Manolis Vournous initially supported a government plan to spend 3.7m euros ($4.1m) building a second, large camp at a disused landfill site, which would enable him to shut down the two tent cities in town. He is now careful to accommodate those who want refugees off Chios altogether.

“Let’s say we find space for another thousand people. What will happen when you get a thousand and one?” Vournous says. “We haven’t seen the EU say, ‘I can see you’re under pressure, I can see you’re carrying a great burden on behalf of the EU, but I’m here to support you to recover as a society.'”

Vournous is indignant at the lack of EU support.

“I am carrying out its policy to prevent Germany, Italy, Austria, Hungary and Spain from flooding with people,” the mayor tells Al Jazeera. “And the EU isn’t even providing enough money for that; but I would also expect it to help me develop the economy, to show that we won’t always be a frontier post; but it has no wish to do this.”

The people of Chios are so frustrated with their role as European Union frontier, some are thinking of seceding.

During a five-hour session of the city council last week, one attendant suggested declaring Chios a city-state. Another suggested a referendum on whether refugees should be allowed to spend more than 72 hours on the island.

A vocal opposition now holds regular demonstrations demanding the closure of all refugee camps and the shipping of refugees to the Greek mainland.

Even the regional government is now against building more infrastructure. “Northern Aegean islands’ capacity for refugees is defined by the hotspots they now have,” says Christiana Kalogirou, North Aegean prefect. “The Aegean cannot by itself bear the burden of the problem.”

Kalogirou blames the European Asylum Support Office, EASO, which was meant to send hundreds of caseworkers to Greece following the deal with Turkey. So far it has sent a few dozen, of whom only 20 are on the islands.

“The fact that Europe hasn’t pursued this staffing as it should … has created the difficult conditions on the islands,” says Kalogirou. She estimates that 70 cases a day are added to a backlog now standing at 9,000.

EASO spokesman Jean-Pierre Schembri says his agency relies on the staff EU members volunteer. “On September 2, we issued a co-ordinated call for 100 staff to be deployed on the islands … We’re still far away from it. We’re still making repeated appeals.”

Europe is addressing a backlog of 1.1 million asylum applications from last year, and member states say caseworkers cannot be spared.

The lack of staff has led to an open quarrel over asylum process. German Chancellor Angela Merkel’s spokesman Stefan Seibert on Wednesday chastised Greece for being too slow to send rejected asylum applicants back to Turkey. But a Greek asylum official tells Al Jazeera that EASO is exclusively responsible for the first winnowing of refugees.

“Greece has no role in accepting or rejecting nominations,” says the official. “It is obvious that if experts do not have the requisite experience, the quality of their work will be poor and the procedure will be vulnerable to litigation and unfair to the asylum seekers.”

The official also says that asylum authorities are wary of deporting applicants because “No EU member state has recognised Turkey as a safe third country so far.”

The result of all these shortcomings is social tension on the islands.

Chios journalist Yiannis Stevis believes the far-right minority will make its presence increasingly felt, as legitimate authority fails to live up to its task. He believes the harassment of refugees who occupied the port in April was a watershed moment for Chios.

“It was a catalyst for the change in public opinion. It sanctioned the far-right elements to have a say in what will happen in the city. I don’t deny them their opinions, but they are a minority; they cannot determine developments, which is what they did that night.”

Ukraine’s battle between the banks and the borrowers

How a foreign currency debt crisis is leaving Ukrainians at risk of losing their homes.

Maria Baranska works 10-hour shifts, seven days a week at her photo studio but still risks losing her home to the bank [Chris Scott/Al Jazeera]

by

Lviv, Ukraine – Maria Baranska, a 68-eight-year-old grandmother of four, could pass as a poster child for Ukraine’s post-Soviet economy.

Two decades ago, in 1996, Baranska pooled a lifetime of savings to become the proprietor of the photo studio where she had worked for 19 years as a state employee.

In the years that followed, the two-storey building located in a historic neighbourhood next to the tramway came to occupy a niche market in the western Ukrainian city of Lviv.

“We had line-ups on Sundays,” says Baranska, describing those boom times. “Soldiers would come to have their pictures taken, and if a girl bought a hat, she would come here to have her picture taken and [her friends] would get photographed wearing that same hat also.”

When the technology shifted from film to digital, Baranska took out – and paid off – two bank loans to upgrade her equipment. Then in 2007, she signed her name as a guarantor on a third loan intending to launch her son Oleg into business.

This was “the start of our troubles,” explains Baranska, discussing a process that has seen her in court fighting a bank that is intent on evicting her from the centrally located, fourth-floor apartment where she has lived since 1991.

Ukraine’s interest rate is among the world’s highest: annual rates of 30 percent on loans made in the national currency are common.

In a bid for cheaper credit, during the early 2000s many borrowers, like the Baranskys, signed contracts committing them to receive and pay back their bank mortgages in dollars or Swiss francs.

These arrangements supplied loans at percentages ranging from one third to one half of the national currency average. But they exposed borrowers to the risks of exchange rate fluctuations, and in the case of Maria and Oleg Baransky the timing was unlucky.

Pummelled first by the world financial crisis then by political instability, the value of Ukraine’s currency, the hryvnia, declined from a rate of five to the US dollar in the year the Baranskys took out the loan to 25 to the dollar today. So, in 2007, the Baranskys’ $120,000 mortgage was worth 600,000 hryvnia, but with the changing rates, their debt has ballooned up to more than 2 million hryvnia today, despite monthly payments in excess of $1,300 over more than seven years .

Maria Baranska still works 10-hour shifts every day at the studio where a picture of Ukraine’s President Petro Poroshenko presides looks down from the wall. But, after the seven years of payments that also included a 14 percent yearly interest, Oleg and Maria defaulted in 2015, still owing about $80,000 on the original $120,000 loan.  

The Baranskys’ story is not atypical. Following a directive from the Central Bank, Ukraine’s banks stopped issuing foreign currency loans in 2009. Still, according to the Independent Association of the Banks of Ukraine [NABU], an industry lobby group, there are 54,000 foreign currency loans outstanding in the country for a combined value of $2.4bn.

“In 2006 and 2007 people had money,” says Lyubov Molchanova, a specialist with the Kiev-based debtor advocacy group Financial Maidan, contextualising the problem. “There were stable jobs and stable salaries. People took loans to buy a home, or a car, or for healthcare or education.”

Herself a former banker, Molchanova blames the banks in that pre-crisis period for corralling clients into foreign-currency mortgages. “They would tell [borrowers] ‘the national currency is expensive; you won’t be able to pay [the interest]. If you [take a loan] in foreign currency it’ll be cheaper and better’,” she says.

‘I used to have 12 employees. Now I have two’

On the macro level, until October 2008, the Ukrainian government intervened economically to maintain the exchange value of the hryvnia at a fixed rate, creating a sense of security, explained Molchanova.

After this was discontinued during the financial meltdown in late 2008, many a Ukrainian small business wilted under the twin pressures of declining sales and escalating debt service costs in hryvnias.

“I used to have 12 employees,” says Katia Ravlyuk, 40, a clothes shop owner, debtor, and friend of Maria Baransksa’s, in Lviv. “Now I have two.”

The effects of the crisis have cut across a cross-section of society. Like Baranska, Raisa Sharikova is enmeshed in a legal process that could result in her losing her home as well.

Standing in front of the court in Zhitomyr, a small, dusty city west of Kiev, the 49-year-old accountant explains how her family contracted a loan of $20,000 from Ukraine’s Taskombank in 2008 to upgrade the insulation in their apartment.

With an income of 3,500 hryvnias a month at that time, scheduled payments of 1,750 hryvnia’s a month were manageable at first, but grew burdensome as the value of the hryvnia slid.

In the spring of 2014, when Sharikova’s 18-year-old son enlisted to fight separatist rebels in the east, the family had to invest its own money to equip him with a flak jacket and other gear.

“The prior?ty was to keep him alive. The gear they were handing out [at the front] didn’t protect [him],” recalls Sharikova. Struggling with the high interest, Sharikova ended up paying $38,000 in principal and percentages on the $20,000 loan before defaulting in January 2015 still owing $7,000.

Who is to blame?

The question of who is to blame and what to do about the debt debacle has stirred controversy. Last December, under pressure from the banking sector, President Poroshenkovetoed a bill passed by Ukraine’s parliament that would have converted loans like Sharikova and Baranska’s back into hryvnias at a pre-crisis exchange rate.

In the meantime, starting in early 2015, debtor activists held protests and pitched army tents in central Kiev to draw attention to their plight.

Following Ukraine’s 2014 Maidan revolution, the country’s new government voted for a moratorium that has suspended most, though not all home evictions in cases of unpaid mortgages.

No legislation aimed at making debts more manageable has succeeded since then in navigating its way through parliament to be signed into law.

Debtor advocates and banks trade blame for the impasse. Activist groups, including Financial Maidan told Al Jazeera that they are demanding a significant write-down of their debts, but the banks warn against easy answers.

“There’s this impression that banks are a kind of fat cat that’s overeaten,” explains Olena Korobkova, executive director of the banking association, NABU.

But Korobkova says this caricature is at odds with the reality of a banking sector that is itself in crisis.

“About 70 banks [out of 187] have been liquidated in [the past] two years,” she explains. “They lost billions [when Russia annexed] Crimea. We have [assets] in Donetsk that we can’t get to [because of the war there].”

Sitting in her office on a bustling Kiev street above a luxury goods store, Korobkova emphasises that the banks are vulnerable, and need the hard-currency income from the mortgages to pay their depositors, some of whom have accounts in dollars.

She concedes that some may have been lax a decade ago when evaluating potential borrowers, but rejects suggestions that the banks could have factored the possibility of a currency collapse into their risk assessment, arguing that the political crisis, which is behind the latest round of devaluations, was unforeseeable.

“Banks have been taken hostage by same situation as the borrowers,” she contends.

Two bills from two sides

Korobkova argues that a unilateral debt write-off could provoke more bankruptcies and inflation. Earlier this year, after consultations with the government, the NABU threw its support behind a debt relief bill that it views as a compromise. The cost of this bill to the banking sector will be 45 billion hryvnia ($1.8bn) according to the association.

Under the bankers’ bill, known as bill 4004, qualifying debtors would see their mortgages converted into hryvnias at half the exchange rate in effect at the time of the bill’s passing. Financial Maidan has responded with a bill of its own that mandates a two-thirds mark-down. But there are differences in the two texts that go beyond the relief amount and extend to the criteria for eligibility.

According to the bank document, among other conditions, eligible debtors must have taken out a loan for the purpose of buying a home, the borrower should not have any other home, and the account should not have been in arrears before January 1, 2015.

Olena Korobka argues that such restrictions are legitimate, saying “there are conscientious and unconscientious borrowers” and citing cases where a debtor has bought three apartments in an expensive district and is renting them out.

But, activists opposing the bank deal insist that the effect of these cumulative conditions is to disqualify as many debtors as possible. Maria Baranska and Raisa Sharikova, for example, both of whom could lose their apartments, would each be ineligible for relief, in Baranska’s case because she took a loan to start a business, and in Sharikova’s because her loan went to renovate a home and not to buy one.

Furthermore, in their final analysis, bankers and activists differ drastically in their assessment of how many debtors would qualify under the criteria of the banks. Korobka quotes a number of 37,000, while Financial Maidan says the figure is no more than 3,000.

This April, in a vote in parliament, neither the bill presented by the bankers nor that of the activists garnered enough support to move past the first stage of deliberations. Each party is in the process of drafting a new bill along essentially the same lines, they told Al Jazeera.

Day in court

In municipal courtrooms across Ukraine, hearings are being held between debtors and banks. The sessions typically last less than 15 minutes.

The mistrust between the two sides is palpable. Some borrowers accuse the banks of account falsification. Activists also claim that the banks are exploiting Ukraine’s mortgage law. According to Molchanova of Financial Maidan, legislation in Ukraine does not limit the amount of a person’s property a creditor can seize to secure the monetary value of a debt.

Activists say the banks have their eye on prime, centrally located apartments like Maria Baranska’s, and, in cases of repossession, have sold them at below market value before coming back to the debtor for further repossessions.

Korobkova says that in such instances the banks sometimes sell groups of mortgages that are in default to a collection agency, and that what those agencies then do with the collateral of each individual borrower is out of the banks’ hands.

Day of reckoning

Another contrast between the activist and bank-sponsored debt-relief bills is the matter of home evictions.

The bill presented by activists demands that the moratorium on evictions be extended by three years, whereas under the bank rules, evictions can start again as soon as the law is signed.

One person who can appreciate what this will mean in practice is Lyudmila Kaminska. The 38-year-old single mother is living on a disability pension. She was stuck with a $45,000 mortgage when her husband ran off in 2008 shortly after the couple bought a new apartment. After a period of struggling but failing to keep up with payments with the help of relatives, Kaminska’s mortgage was referred to a judge in 2010.

Kaminska continued to make partial payments until 2014, but one day last December, while Kaminska was at a meeting with her bank, three collectors from a Kiev-based agency knocked on her apartment door.

“He stuck his foot in the door. He said the apartment wasn’t ours any more,” recounts Kaminska’s 19-year-old son, Andrei. He is a medical student, who was at home with Kaminska’s father at the time.

According to Andrei, when he tried to close the door one man threatened to break it, and the three agents then forced their way inside. Andrei and his brother Sergei, 16, describe how over the next 36 hours a tense standoff ensued as the collectors called for back-up and about 30 men hired by the collection agency squatted in the kitchen and an adjoining bedroom, while the family and a smaller number of supporters from Financial Maidan movement in Vinnytsia huddled in the back room.

The brothers say that from photographs of the men, they were able to identify one of them as a local criminal who had spent time in jail.

The Kaminskys say that the collectors stole a knife, made a mess in the kitchen and promised to return before leaving the next day. In subsequent weeks the family received phone calls from the collection company, and in mid-March they received a video in the mail showing other households in Ukraine being evicted.

Because Kaminska’s mortgage had been outstanding for several years, it was not covered by the moratorium voted for by parliament in 2014. But according to the Kaminskys, their dispute is about more than just payment arrears.

Speaking through Andrei as an interpreter, Kaminska alleges that when Ukraine’s UkrSibbank sold her mortgage to the collection agency in 2011, she was not informed of the change, and that the bank continued to pocket her subsequent payments, amounting to $5,000, without applying them to her debt.

UkrSibbank did not respond to repeated phone calls and emails from Al Jazeera seeking to obtain a comment on this allegation.

This experience has left the family defiant. “There’s no way we’re paying. We don’t know who to pay,” says Andrei.

Common good

In promoting their respective agendas, both the NABU and the debtors insist that they are working for the common good. Korobkova argues that adopting an activist-style write-off would equate to risking “the macro-economic stability of the country for the benefit of less than one percent of the population”.

For their part, debtors speak angrily about the high interest rates that they say are a cause of their continued indebtedness, and are choking the middle class.

“If we had decent interest rates, this country would flourish,” says Katia, Maria Baranska’s friend from Lviv. “We’re young and energetic.”

By email, Alexander Kravchuk, an economist with the Kiev-based Institute for Social and Labour Research, explains that the high interest rates in Ukraine are determined largely by the perceived risk of default. But it seems that the prognosis might be a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Experiences like the Kaminskys’ show that future evictions could get violent in the absence of established rules.

Debtors represent a broad spectrum of society, are organised, and are present in all regions of Ukraine. Until now, the moratorium has maintained a social peace, but no one knows what will happen if this is challenged.

Here’s How the Government Is Turning the Entire United States into a Debt Prison

By Shaun Bradley of The Anti-Media

Since the United States was founded, citizenship has represented a safe haven from oppressive regimes around the world. By preserving the principles of small government and free markets, those who were willing to work hard found success, and America became a magnet for innovation. But as the U.S. continues to erodepersonal and economic freedom, more people than ever before are handing over their U.S. passports to seek better opportunities abroad.

The staggering amount of debt held by the American empire ensures the public will be working it off for generations to come. The government has already begun its campaign to make it more difficult to leave the country, and it has also begun to crack down on the finances of the eight million Americans living abroad. Regardless of whether you’re a millionaire with multiple foreign bank accounts or a recent college graduate with a boatload of debt, the status of being a United States citizen brings with it a burden that will only grow heavier over time.

Since 2008, the number of individuals giving up their citizenship has increased by almost 560%, setting new records each of the past three years. Some of these expats are motivated by the extra tax load paid when working abroad while others are trying to avoid student loan debt. Others have just had enough of theencroaching police state.

Every taxpayer left in the country now owes more than $149,000 of the national debt, so it’s no surprise the tide is beginning to turn. By hook or by crook, in the coming years, citizens will be fleeced of that money through higher taxes, savings that are inflated away, and an overall drop in their standard of living. Many can see the writing on the wall and have become determined to protect themselves from the years of economic repression coming down the pipe.

Draconian steps have already been taken to slow the rate of expatriation. For one, the IRS has broadened its reach into foreign bank accounts through the Foreign Account Tax Compliance Act. Through agreements withover 100 nations, the law is able to require all financial institutions abroad to report the account details of any American customers they have. With access to this new information, the IRS canrevoke the passports of potential tax evaders and hinder their ability to travel using yet another additional power the agency was granted last year.

The Internal Revenue Service is one of the most powerful agencies of the federal government and has a track record of persecuting groups for political reasons. The fact that they have now set their sights are expats shouldn’t surprise anyone.

The Tea Party movement, whatever your views on it, experienced this first-hand during the 2012 elections. Jenny Beth Martin, national coordinator of Tea Party Patriots spoke on the targeting scandal:

“The IRS has demonstrated the most disturbing, illegal and outrageous abuse of government power. This deliberate targeting and harassment of tea party groups reaches a new low in illegal government activity and overreach.”

While penalties are being levied against those with enough money to work around the world, the most impactful measures are aimed at those just making ends meet. The initial paperwork for renouncing citizenship used to cost just $450, but it has skyrocketed to $2,350, making it the most expensive fee of any country in the world. It may not seem like much in the grand scheme of things, but this additional expense directly targets the young and working class, creating a huge barrier to even starting the process. As an added bonus, the price increase has raised over $12 million for government coffers in just over a year.

The $19.5 trillion in debt that has been amassed through decades of interventionist policies and clandestine operations can only be maintained by taxing the government’s human livestock. After all, the federal government counts student loans as almost 30% of their net worth. If the young and productive workers of the future are allowed to leave, U.S. power and wealth will go with them.

The Millennial generation has been completely duped by the federal loan programs, pumped out to any 18-year-old with a pulse. The $1.3 trillion in outstanding student loans is akin to indentured servitude for those entering the dismal job market. And students themselves aren’t the only ones on the chopping block — 90% of these loans are co-signed by the parents, attaching the ball and chain further up the family tree. For those tempted to jump ship and disappear into another country, their families will be held responsible in their stead. It’s reminiscent of North Korea, where the families of defectors are punished.

Noah Brown, president of the Association of Community College Trustees wrote:

“If you default, your financial life is ruined. You have to deal in cash for the rest of your life. It used to be death and taxes were the only certainty. You can throw in student loans now.”

Many are learning the hard way that these loans are unique and can’t be wiped away by simply declaring bankruptcy. Instead of the collateral being a house or a car, it’s future earnings that can be seized.

Those who find themselves with no way out have been offered a deal with the devil — work in the public sector for 10 years and you will be granted your freedom. This has created a perverse incentive to work directly for the state, placing fresh cogs in the military, police, and bureaucratic machines. The policies seen so far are soft measures compared to what may be tried in the future as the government grows and the economy weakens. A new type of debt prison is being built in the U.S., and as the inmates realize their predicament, the rush for the exits could be chaotic — so long as people can afford to pay the fee to leave.

Those who understand the fragile state of our economic and political system can see that when politicians start building walls, it may be more about keeping people in than out. Despite the brainwashing often conducted in public schools, many are realizing the future for U.S. citizens may look very different than the past. The freedom and opportunity that have been synonymous with U.S. citizenship are being transformed before our eyes. When America abandoned its core values and let loose the scourge of oppressive big government, the countdown to when citizens would pay the price began.


Return American Government to the Constitution and Natural Law or Continue Existence as Debt Slaves and Chattel, the Choice is yours America

The beginning of sorrows for the modern age in America…

051715_1626_MilitiaOrga1.jpg

Since 1861, everything that has been done by the District of Columbia or the Several States in compliance with the District has no constitutional authority whatsoever, since the government created by the Constitution ceased to exist. We have been living either under a military dictatorship under Abraham Lincoln or under a globalist, corporate oligarchy that gained control after their agents murdered Lincoln; eventually gaining complete control over the reins of power, with Americans none the wiser.

With the incorporation of 1871, the oligarchy began slowly and systematically altering the way we conduct business and view our world… like a frog in a kettle we’ve been made accustomed to the corporate world view and taught less and less about the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God. Today we live under corporatism that has expanded and enveloped the American Republic and after 154 years, we’ve lost the knowledge of what it truly means to be an American.

The national status of Washington, D.C….

The District of Columbia is FOREIGN to the Several States and in a state of war against the natural rights of the people within them. It is NOT a party to the Constitution since Congress adjourned sine die, so people contracting with them are not doing so under Article I, Section 8, and clauses 17 and 18. It is a totally foreign entity like France or Spain and not constrained by any limitation of our Constitution and Bill of Rights. The United States Code and the Uniform Commercial Code has replaced our Constitution and Bill of Rights today; all outcroppings of the Lieber Code introduced by the Lincoln dictatorship, in 1863.

Note that I’m NOT quoting any Supreme Court or other inferior court case on any of this… since the Supreme Court is the legal department of the corporation, not government of the people. When it comes to the American Republic, the Supreme Court as constituted today has no jurisdiction or bearing since it is a corporation. Organic government is part of the natural world and pertains to the Laws of Nature and is constituted to secure our natural rights, no more.

The Supreme Court today is part of the corporate government, having no requirement or incentive to respect or abide by the Constitution and Bill of Rights. The corporations control and pay ALL the corporate courts and your tax dollars go to the stockholders of the Federal Reserve System, which includes the Rothschild Bank of London; they determine how they’re spent, not Congress.

Fiction vs Natural…

Corporations are legal fictions created by government for facilitating commerce by among other things, LIMITING LIABILITY. When you limit liability, you remove a commensurate amount of responsibility for actions performed by limiting compensation for damages to those that are harmed. Officers of corporations are also protected from personal liability for the actions of the corporation as a whole. Individual People have no such protection from liability and are still held fully liable for their actions under the law unless they incorporate; do you see the vicious circle here?

In my opinion, changing the playing field in favor of corporations by limiting their corporate liability over individuals is not only unfair but unjust since government is favoring their creation, not the People. Going one step further, by government incorporating itself it is now no longer a government of the people but another corporation representing the interests of its fellow corporations. Government in America has completely severed its connection to and reliance on the People and today views us as human resources, with them in the position of god.

Even non-profit corporations are managed by people who are not volunteers; many who received exorbitant salaries and bonuses for administering the corporation… so the term non-profit is just a bit deceiving in my view. Look into the Red Cross, animal rights groups, or political organizations incorporated as non-profits; they all bring in huge sums of money, little of which actually goes for the intention you sent your money in for… supporting the bureaucracy before the cause.

Despite all the marketing and hype to the contrary, corporations are all about one thing, money. Limited American government is about one thing, securing our Natural Rights. It appears that America has turned to worshipping money instead of the Creator. The oligarchy’s United States Government, Inc., has driven us into a state of debt unparalleled in human history. I have seen reports that their unfunded liabilities for their social programs, corporate subsidies, foreign bribes and wars, banking derivatives, and other expenses not permitted under the Constitution exceed $1.5 quadrillion dollars; many times the GDP of the whole world.

Restoring the American Republic…

I believe if we’re to regain our freedom, we must return to the Constitution as of March 1861 and the American Republic constituted at that time before secession; return to government of the people and accountable to them. I also believe the debt of the United States Government, Inc. should be repudiated and the corporation and its subsidiaries posing as State Governments dissolved, all political entities should return to their organic Constitutions or charters as applicable. States that were admitted by the corporation should return to the status of territory until Congress, lawfully constituted, can consider their admissions as of the current date of admission, not retroactively (ex post facto). In my opinion, all borrowing for programs and spending that is not specifically permitted by the Constitution is not legitimate public debt since the people have not given their consent through the Constitution.

“The general misconception is that any statute passed by legislators bearing the appearance of law constitutes the law of the land. The U.S. Constitution is the supreme law of the land, and any statute, to be valid, must be in agreement. It is impossible for both the Constitution and a law violating it to be valid; one must prevail. This is succinctly stated as follows:’

‘The General rule is that an unconstitutional statute, though having the form and name of law is in reality no law, but is wholly void and ineffective for any purpose; since unconstitutionality dates from the time of its enactment and not merely from the date of the decision so branding it. An unconstitutional law, in legal contemplation, is as inoperative as if it had never been passed. Such a statute leaves the question that it purports to settle just as it would be had the statute not been enacted.’

‘Since an unconstitutional law is void, the general principles follow that it imposes no duties, confers no rights, creates no office, bestows no power or authority on anyone, affords no protection, and justifies no acts performed under it.’

‘A void act cannot be legally consistent with a valid one. An unconstitutional law cannot operate to supersede any existing valid law. Indeed, insofar as a statute runs counter to the fundamental law of the land, it is superseded thereby.’

‘No one is bound to obey an unconstitutional law and no courts are bound to enforce it.” — 16 Am Jur 2d, Sec 177 late 2d, Sec 256:

Politicians using our credit for the purpose of buying votes or filling the pockets of favored corporations through legislation outside the authority of their oath of office are committing fraud; the people should not be on the hook for fraudulent debt.

Let the bankers and their corporations pay the debt that was contracted for their benefit for purposes outside the Supreme Law of the American Republic; we have been plundered enough!

The following excerpt from our Declaration of Independence states in no uncertain terms the principles of American law, the Laws of Nature and Nature’s God, which is Natural Law.

“When in the Course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the Laws of Nature and of Nature’s God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation.’

‘We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.— That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed, — That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.” — Declaration of Independence, 1776.

Unless and until We the People understand what has happened to America and act accordingly, which is not petitioning or otherwise engaging politically with the District of Columbia or any corporate municipality in America, we will remain human resources to be used or disposed of at the oligarchy’s direction and will. Our local governments must be forced to unincorporate and return to their natural accountable state. Officers serving us in government must understand that they are personally liable to us should they attack our natural rights; everyone must respect the principle of “do no harm”.

When Insults Had Style

Today the political jibes and satire are aimed at the bank accounts of crooked politicians. Not so long ago there was a richness of language sadly that is missing from today’s vocabulary. Journalists too could hold their own in any bout of verbal jousting.

King’s toady Lord Sandwich acidly addressed the editor of The North Briton. “Sir, you will either die on the gallows or of the pox.” John Wilkes, perhaps an anti-Semite, replied: “That depends, sir, on whether I embrace your politics or your mistress.” This exchange has wrongly been attributed to Gladstone and Disraeli.

It was an era when people could communicate with considerable panache. Most will have smiled at the exchange between Winston Churchill and Lady Astor who had said to him: “If you were my husband I would give you poison.”

“If you were my wife I would take it,” the turncoat politician immediately replied. With the benefit of hindsight many will have wished the pair had married. Britain’s wartime unelected premier has taken credit for many celebrated jibes. Among the best examples are, “A modest little person with much to be modest about.”

Irish playwright George Bernard Shaw detested Winston Churchill. Well aware that the object of his ire was better known for his cohorts than his friends, he wrote: “I am enclosing two tickets to the first night of my new play. Bring a friend, if you have one.” Winston replied, “Cannot possibly attend first night, will attend second, if there is one.”

Churchill was not so much a great orator as an unashamed plagiarist. Many of his comments in his ‘blood, soil, tears and sweat’ speeches were stolen from the dialogues of earlier ~ and often foreign statesmen. Many other jibes still erroneously credited to Churchill were amusing music hall audiences long before the old fraud was born.

Insults that carried a venomous sting must include Clarence Darrow’s: “I have never killed a man, but I have read many obituaries with great pleasure.”

All writers have their critics. But, as Finnish composer Jean Sibelius surmised, “There has never been a monument to celebrate a critic’s life.”

Journalist Ernest Hemingway had his share of critics. One of the best was William Faulkner’s summing up of the war correspondent’s writing style. “He has never been known to use a word that might send the reader to a dictionary.”

One hapless author received a memo from Moses Hadas. “Thank you for sending me a copy of your book. I’ll waste no time reading it.”

U.S President Abraham Lincoln was known for his sharp wit. “He can compress the most words into the smallest idea of any man I know.” One of Lincoln’s remarks still carries weight because it applies to so many politicians today: “It is better to keep one’s mouth shut and be thought a fool than to open it and remove all doubt.”

Mark Twain, renowned for his sharp wit once said; “I didn’t attend the funeral but I sent a nice letter saying I approved of it.”

Those in a poor relationship may take heart from Stephen Bishop’s remark: “I feel so miserable without you. It is almost like having you here.” Equally sardonic the opinion of Irvin S. Cobb: “I have just heard about his illness. Let us hope it is nothing trivial.” Attributed to Oscar Wilde is the remark, “Some cause happiness wherever they go; others whenever they go.”

After they go brings us neatly to the subject of the afterlife which prompted Jack E. Leonard to surmise; “There’s nothing wrong with you that reincarnation won’t cure.”

Freedom of Speech the Jewish Way : “Roger Waters Needs to Shut Up About the Jews”

Jewish Shock Jock Howard Stern: “Roger Waters Needs to Shut Up About the Jews”

186491627sk00019-7th-annual

RADIO personality Howard Stern has asked if Pink Floyd star Roger Waters wants Jews to “go back to the concentration camp”, after the British musician attacked Jon Bon Jovi for playing in Tel Aviv. (ILLUSTRATION: Ex-Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters)

New York disc jockey Stern — who is Jewish — launched the blistering criticism of Waters in a seven-minute rant on his popular radio show this Tuesday.

Waters, an outspoken Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions activist, said in an open letter issued in the run-up to Bon Jovi’s sell-out show last week that the singer would be standing “shoulder to shoulder… with the settler who burned the baby” — a reference to the Jewish extremists who firebombed a Palestinian home in August — should he go ahead with the concert.

His letter — the latest in a long-line of anti-Israel missives to artists including Robbie Williams, Dionne Warwick and the Rolling Stones — also said Bon Jovi, 53, had forfeited his chance to “stand on the side of justice”, despite making no reference to attacks perpetrated by Palestinian terrorists.

Blasting 72-year-old Waters in characteristically fiery fashion, Stern said: “He’s gotta shut up, Roger Waters.

“What is with Roger Waters and the Jews? Where do you want the Jews to go Roger?

“Where do you want them to go? You want them to go back to the concentration camp?”

US shock jock Howard Stern

Defending the state of Israel, he added: “There are so many Arab countries and so much land around Israel that if you threw a pin in a pool, that’s what Israel is.

“Picture a desert with no natural resources, no water, no oil. It was a shithole that nomads would essentially walk over. So they figured, where’s the one place they can stick Jews where no one will be offended.”

Stern, who last year said “if you’re anti-Israel you’re anti-America”, also claimed Arab countries “don’t want” Palestinians.

The representative body for Palestinians in the US defended Waters — who accused Robbie Williams of “endorsing deadly racism” with a Tel Aviv concert this summer — as a “human rights activist”, and accused Stern of making “racist assumptions”.

The Lost Ten Tribes

THE BRITISH ISRAEL nonsense has its origins in the Jews’ myth about the “lost ten tribes,” who were the Sheenies who had scattered throughout the civilized world and set up their colonies wherever the natives were sufficiently industrious and prosperous to be fleeced. In the Middle Ages there were all sort of tales about where the ten tribes were living, and this drivel was given a great impetus in the time of Cromwell, when a Kike turned up with the story that he had found in Peru a tribe of Indians who understood and spoke Hebrew and so must be descendants of the “ten tribes.” This eventually produced Joseph Smith’s variety of Christianity, which I mentioned in the December 1989 issue of Liberty Bell.

The Puritans of the Commonwealth and perhaps Cromwell himself (unless he was cynically repaying the Yids who had financed his revolution) were suckers for propaganda to the effect that the kindred peoples, God’s Race and the English, if united, would rule the world, but so far as I know, the specific statement that the “ten tribes” had migrated to Britain was first made by a Huguenot refugee in England named Abbadie around 1688; the only edition of his book, Le triomphe de la providence et de la religion, known to me was published at Amsterdam in 1723, but may not be the first.

The “British Israel Movement” was begun by an English lunatic, Richard Brothers, who, in 1793, discovered that he was God’s Nephew, because God = Jesus, and he was the son of Jesus’s brother, Jakob (James); there were, of course, some chronological difficulties in fixing his birthday, but with God all things are possible. Brothers, therefore, was by his glorious heredity, the “Prince of the Jews” and the destined ruler of the world, and therefore the true King of Great Britain. George III did not agree, and Brothers accordingly was locked up for a while, but there were in England persons no more intelligent than he, including at least one an influential Whig in the Parliament; they procured his release and censored his ravings so that they could be published without exciting derision. The only one I have seen is entitled A Correct Account of the Invasion and Conquest of this Island by the Saxons,…the Descendants of the Greater Part of the Ten Tribes.

This kind of hogwash, doubtless financed by the Yids, was especially popular as justifying the admission of undisguised Kikes to full British citizenship, and as fostering the comforting dream of British-Jewish dominion over the world, as decreed by old Yahweh.

Thousands of English and Scots developed a thirst for this sweet swill, which seemed to provide an historical justification of Christianity apart from the more or less incredible tales in their holy book. No one, so far as I know, has ever tried to compile a complete bibliography of the hundreds of books and booklets published on this subject, which was officially known as “British-Israel Identity.” The first two words are commonly omitted by epopts of the cult in this country. (I remember having heard, years ago, the beginning of a quarrel between two female crackpots, who differed on the question of whether Americans were descended from the same Israelite tribe as the British or a different one. I left before the hair-pulling started.)

There are all sorts of amusing incidents in this carnival, e.g., one book was translated into Italian by an Englishman eager to tell the Italians who owned the world.

A. F. R. A. Glover (not, I devoutly hope, an ancestor of the well-known Classical scholar!), constructed an elaborate genealogy, showing, step by step, the descent of Queen Victoria from a bandit chief named David, who is conspicuously mentioned in the Jew-Book. No one seems to know whether the Queen was amused. One wonders also whether she knew whether or not her adored husband, Prince Albert, was half a Jew. (There was a rumor that his royal father’s Yiddish treasurer consoled the queen for her husband’s insuperable aversion from women. Frank Harris, somewhere in his voluminous memoirs, says that Victoria’s son, King Edward VII, spoke German with the accent of a Bavarian Jew, but refuses to discuss the scandal, well-known in his day.)

There was a certain amount of truth in the claims of the votaries of British-Israel Identity. Remember that even in the time of the great King Edward I, who tried to clean up England in 1290, any Sheeny who was not a notoriously criminal usurer could scurry around to the nearest church and persuade or pay a credulous or venal clergyman to sprinkle him with magic water, which instantly made him an Englishman and beyond the King’s power. A large number of Jews did precisely that, accumulated large fortunes, and married their lavishly dowered daughters to the sons of necessitous or greedy members of the landed gentry and not infrequently even to sons of peers. This calculated pollution of English blood had gone so far by the first decades of this century that Hilaire Belloc was sure that none of the great territorial families was without a Jewish admixture that was evident in the features of their young men.

The British-Israel poppycock greatly facilitated the rise of Jews to political power in the train of D’Israeli, whom Victoria made a British earl (!) and, for a time, her Prime Minister. The recent ascent of a rabbi to the House of Lords is only the natural result of the growing corruption of the preceding century.

The British-Israel agitation had a disastrous consequence. Men like Cecil Rhodes and Lord Milner were too intelligent, of course, to take the genealogical drivel seriously, but they were so gullible that they did believe in a permanent alliance between Great Britain and Jewry. That sealed the doom of Britain, for the Jews, with their fixed and instinctive policy of “first defile, and then destroy,” naturally ruin first the nations, such as Germany and Britain, that were most hospitable to them.

The Jews Who Are Not The Ancient Israelites


In this medieval painting, Jesus is handed over to the Romans by the Sanhedrin and Pharisees. Talmudism is a quasi-reincarnation of these Pharisee’s control system, followed by a racial group NOT descended from these people.

Judaism is Pharisaism, which Christ preached against. A modern Orthodox Jew’s theology is the same as a Pharisee of Christ’s day. The Ancient Israelites (who were not Jews, nor were they their ancestors) practiced Mosaism, the religion of Moses.

Jesus was a Hebrew (that is, a descendant of Eber), an Israelite (a descendant of Jacob), and a Judahite (a descendant of Judah) but not a Jew!

Modern Jews are not even Israelites; they have no relation to Jesus at all. Modern Ashkenazi (or Yiddish) Jews are, in fact, primarily descended from a Turkic people, known as the Khazars, who converted to Judaism in the late 9th Century AD and the Jewish Edomites who converted to, or rather created, Judaism hundreds of years before. According to some genetic tests, 60% of Jewish DNA is Central Asian Turkic. The remaining 40% is of Semitic, specifically Edomite, origin.

The Edomites were a mixed people, descended from Esau (the son of Isaac, and brother of Jacob). Esau had married several women of different ethnicity’s that existed in the land of Canaan at that time, including Hittites, Hivites, Horites, Canaanites, and Ishmaelites (Arabs).

A bitter rivalry between the descendants of Esau and Jacob continued throughout history, and as they lived in close proximity for hundreds of years, their hatred worsened. The Romans referred to the Edomites as Idumeans, separate from Israelites, when they lived in the region of Palestine together. The Romans later divided Palestine into districts, with Idumea (land of Edomites) being one of the districts. Some Edomites converted to the religion of the Israelites although in doing so, they bastardized it, creating the books known as the Babylonian Talmud.

At the fall of the Roman Empire, the Edomite Jews became scattered over all of Europe, with the majority settling down in the Turco-Mongolian (Khazaric) area of Russia, where they intermarried with the heathen Khazars who had converted en masse to Judaism. They are called Ashkenazi, and make up at least 90% of modern Jewry. Every Israeli Prime Minister has come from this heathen background. Which means their ancestors never walked the hills of Palestine. The only Jews with Abrahamic blood flowing in their veins come from the Sephardic Jews, whose lineage can be traced back to Esau/Edom.

Here are some quotes that show this:

“Hasdai ibn Shaprut, who was foreign minister to Abd-al-Rahman, Sultan of Cordova, in his letter to King Joseph of the Chazars (about 960 AD) … speaks of the tradition according to which the Chazars once dwelt near the Seir Mountains [The ‘Seir Mountains’ are none other than the original land of Esau-Edom – ‘Thus dwelt Esau in Mount Seir: Esau is Edom’ (Genesis 36:8). Seir was a mountain range sought of the Dead Sea and was also known as the ‘land of Edom’ (Genesis 36:21). The Seir mountains were the home of the Edomites for nearly a millennium (The Edomites arrived in Edom or Seir at the end of the 14th and beginning of the 13th century B.C. Encyclopedia Judaica, Vol. 6, p. 372) Thus we have it from Jewish sources that the Khazars originally ‘dwell near the Seir Mountains’ so are racially of Edomite stock. But how and when did Edomites get to Khazaria? There is evidence that in the 6th century BC, some of the Edomites fled their homeland of Seir and migrated north, ‘After the fall of Jerusalem, in 586 BC, the Edomites began to press northward (Ezekiel 36:5).”

(The New Westminster Dictionary of the Bible, ed. by Henry S. Gehman, The Westminster Press, Philadelphia, 1970, p. 418}].” (The Jewish Encyclopedia, Vol. IV, (1905), p. 3).

“… the Idumeans (Edomites) were…made Jews…and a Turkish people (Khazars) were mainly Jews in South Russia…The main part of Jewry never was in Judea and had never come out of Judea.”

(H.G. Wells, The Outline of History, 3rd ed., MacMillian, 1921, p. 494).

“Edom is in Modern Jewry.”

(The Jewish Encyclopedia,1925 edition, vol. 5, p. 41)

“… the large majority of surviving Jews in the world of Eastern European, and thus perhaps mainly of Khazar origin. If so, this would mean that their ancestors came not from the Jordan but from the Volga, not from Canaan, but from the Caucasus…and that genetically they are more closely related to the Hun, Uigur and Magyar tribes than to the seed of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob.”

(Arthur Koestler, The Thirteenth Tribe, Random House, 1967, p. 17).

Strictly speaking, it is incorrect to call an ancient Israelite a ‘Jew’ or to call a contemporary Jew an ‘Israelite’ or a ‘Hebrew.’”

(The Jewish Almanac, Compiled and Edited by Richard Siegel and Carl Rheins (New York: Bantam Books, 1980) p. 3.)

Those who interchange the words “Jew” and Israelite, call Abraham a Jew, though Abraham was not an Israelite or a Jew. The word “Jew” is not used in the Bible until nearly 1,000 years after Abraham. Abraham was a Shemite (that is a descendant of Shem), and he was also a Hebrew (a descendant of Eber or Heber). But to say that he was a Judahite is to say that he descended from his own great-grandson, which is impossible!

One of Jacob’s (Israel’s) children was Judah (Hebrew “Yehudah”). His descendants were called Yehudim (“Judahites”). In Greek the name is Ioudaioi (“Judeans”). Most all Bible translations use the word “Jew,” which is a modern, shortened form of the word “Judahite.” A “Jew” in the Old Testament would be a “Judahite;” and a “Jew” in the New Testament would be a “Judean.”

The Bible uses the term “Jew” or Judahite in three distinct ways:

1) One who is of the tribe of Judah in a racial sense (as Jesus was);

2) One who is a citizen of the southern nation of Judah, including the Tribes of Benjamin and most of the Tribe of Levi; it will even include Canaanites and Edomites who were citizens of Judah (these are from whom modern Jews descend); and,

3) One who is a follower of the religion of Judaism, or as it was more anciently known as Pharisaism (After the Pharisees).

Thank you, CelticSicilian.

As we can see here, whenever I say “Jews” on my blog, I really mean “Khazars” or “Chazars.” Most everyone uses the term “Jew” as a short-hand so the readers can understand of whom they speak. But they’re really not Jews of the Bible or the Old Testament (the Torah) as advertised by them. They have resurrected Pharisaism (which Jesus preached against) in the teachings of the Talmud and only by this can they be called “Judaic.”


Polish “Jews” studying the Talmud. These are the Ashkenazim, racially the Khazars, who come mostly from Germany, Poland and Southern Russia. The richer German Ashkenazim have been in the US the longest, with many of the poorer ones being allowed to immigrate in the 1880’s as white Europeans. Little did we know just what we were doing.

These Khazars are from Eastern Europe, mostly Poland and Southern Russia, some of whom migrated into Germany and other European nations. They’ve considered themselves “Jewish” from the Holy Land, for centuries now (the first few generations is all it would take) and their main religious book is the Talmud, some of it written in Babylon and then added to by themselves in Europe during the middle ages. And some was written by Sephardic Jews, in exile in Egypt and elsewhere, passed onto Jewish communities in Spain, then on-towards the European Khazars north and eastward.

All of this is very complex and confusing for most Americans, hence people just call them “Jews.” And they want you to think of them as Israelites, instead of anything else, so as to take full advantage of the biblical status, victimhood and economic clout, but mostly for the cohesiveness of their racial stock. As such, this is the most racist group in the world, once you see their actions in toto.

The Khazar racial group, who are the main promoters of Zionism and Jewish supremacism, may well have less “Holy Land” DNA than even the Palestinians that they have been trying to clear from the region for decades. This is one of the biggest lies of all history and, unbelievably, is still being promoted to this day. Often, when the Jew is not on the radar, he freely discusses this very fact among themselves, but the moment any Gentile brings it up, he is called a “anti-Semite.” Curious, huh?

This is done mostly to befuddle the surrounding Christians and has worked marvelously for them. Witness the rise of “Dispensationalists” who believe that we need to support these people and the State of Israel for the sake of Christianity — even when these very same people believe in a Talmud that says Christ was nothing but a Egyptian magician and is now being boiled for eternity in a vat of excrement or semen in the bowels of hell!

“The modern Jew is the product of the Talmud.” -– Michael Rodkinson, in preface of Babylonian Talmud, page XI.

“The Talmud is to this day the circulating heart’s blood of the Jewish religion. Whatever laws, customs, or ceremonies we observe-whether we are Orthodox, Conservative, Reform, or merely spasmodic sentimentalists-we follow the Talmud. It is our common law.” -– Herman Wouk, “This is My God.”

They’ve also worked tirelessly to elimanate any signs of Christianity from public property in the US. No longer can even the Manger scene be set-up in the town square for Christmas. Yet the menorah is perfectly legal. Any sign of Jesus supposedly serves as a reminder of that day in Jerusalum, 2,000 years ago and they say they don’t want to be called “Christ-killers” over it. In reality, the Talmud states that it was them, the Pharisees who killed Jesus (Baleem) with their own hands and not the Romans. According to them, he was stoned, strangled and decapitated at least four times (a bit of over-kill) in a trash dump.

As an “Egyptian magician,” Jesus is considered a “false-prophet” by their Orthodoxy, so they are really out to stop you from worshipping Him in any way. And even Jewish political and social engineers, like the Jewish Anti-Defamation League (ADL) and even your very own government (can you believe that?), are now attacking the New Testament’s writings,*  while totally ignoring anything about this Talmud.

Some evangelical “ministers,” like the Bishop John Hagee, insist on deceiving their flocks about all of this, never telling you a thing about the real-life “hate” speech about Christians contained in the Talmud, nor that they call us “Goyim,” or cattle. They also have other secret code names for the non-Jew, like “Cuthanite” or “Heathen.” These special names would eventually get out and the Talmudic Jews would then change them, sometimes even giving out secret code books to their Yeshiva students so they could correlate the names with what they study in the Talmud.

Bishop Hagee says we have to support the State of Israel no matter what (basing it on the Old Testament or Torah) and conveniently ignoring all the evils that this country (based on the Talmud) does to the world, including to the USA. He believes that with the restoration of ancient Israel and the Temple Mount, we’ll see Jesus Christ descend from the heavens to take his place in the new Third Temple finally bringing about the 1000 year reign of Christ.

But his Zionist chums believe unabashedly otherwise. Once all this takes place, it will really be the Jewish Messiah (called the “Mosiach”) who appears and the borders of Israel “will then magically expand to the size of the globe.” In other words, the Jews will take over the entire planet, rendering Bishop Hagee, his flock and the rest of us poor slobs as slaves to them and their “Messiah.”

Basically, both the Zionists and Orthodox Jews are using Christian Zionists to jack-up all the Armageddon bit for the security of supposedly secular Israel and, along with all this, creating the groundwork in advance of the Jewish Messiah, in the hopes it will entice Him to show up to the party — but for real. This is a big part of the overall Jewish Agenda and the New World Order.

Who’s right? Who knows? I say it’s probable that both sides are very wrong but such thinking could get all of us into some serious BS. Like in World War BS. I’m being as serious as I possibly can be here.

Now, the Khazar Jews, or the Ashkenazim, have serious positions of power in the Western world; although it’s quite true that many are not religious or orthodox Jews. Yet the State of Israel is obviously, blatantly the number-one issue for them, not America. So, in effect, they’re indeed fullfilling the exact same wishes of their religious people.

Plus, it’s seems readily apparant that the real money power in this world, such as the Rothschilds, are fully behind all of this kind of thinking. Baron Edmond de Rothschild bought huge amounts of land in Palestine, in advance of the arrival of European Ashkenazim and even before Zionisim was introduced, supposedly the work of one Theodor Herzl.

But there is a segment of Jews (the Torah Jews), who reject this line of Zionisim and act patriotically in the nations they live. They believe only God can do such things and such behavior by the Zionists is sinful and dangerous (they are right, there). But these people have been generally ignored by the majority of Jews, unfortunately.

* The US State department’s “Office of Global anti-Semitism” has recently declared parts of the New Testament as anti-Semitic “Hate speech,” such as when Jesus is turned over to the Romans, but not one word about any of the hate speech directed at Christians, contained within the Talmud!

Despite passionate support of Israel by evangelicals, ADL claims Christianity is inherently anti-Semitic. ADL says the New Testament is the seedbed of suspicion and blame against Jews leading to the Holocaust of WW II.3 Televangelist John Hagee, recipient of numerous ADL/B’nai B’rith awards, upholds ADL propaganda.

These 5 Censored Books Tell a History the Establishment Wants Hidden


Dr. William Pierce on the ADL

In late September, the ADL released a report stating the National Alliance is the “most dangerous organized hate group in America.” But it is the ADL which is the true hate group. It earns its living: selling hate. It makes its money by persuading Jews and wannabe Jews that they are in great danger — but if everyone will just send them a nice, fat check today, the ADL will protect them. The ADL deliberately makes the National Alliance sound scary. Their press releases tend to be deceptive and are written in a way calculated to lead to misinterpretation. Then, if the newspapers exaggerate things even more, why so much the better.

One of the ADL’s fondest projects is “combating hate speech.” “Hate speech,” of course, is whatever they find offensive or dangerous to their interests. The ADL is especially concerned about the propagation of what they consider dangerous ideas over the Internet and has been working with software developers to develop censorship programs which can be installed on any computer, so that computer users cannot find any Politically Incorrect material on the Internet. But lobbying to stamp out the Bill of Rights isn’t the ADL’s only activity. They’re also the largest and most effective private espionage organization in America — in which guise they have committed more criminal acts than the National Alliance has been “linked” to.

Know Your Place Shut Your Face

The increasingly tyrannical nature of “hate speech” legislation and political correctness as well as the manner in which they are enforced has been highlighted by recent events in the United States and abroad in the West.

On October 30, police in Eugene, Oregon arrested and charged Damien Leon Ramirez, a 23-year-old student at the University of Oregon (UO), with intimidation after he reportedly hurled “anti-Semitic” slurs at members of Alpha Epsilon Pi (AEPi), an international Jewish fraternity with a chapter on the Ducks’ campus.

Robin Holmes, vice president of student life at UO, condemned the so-called “hate crime” committed by Ramirez.

“The University of Oregon community is deeply disturbed by the crimes alleged to have been committed against AEP,” Miss Holmes was quoted as stating according to recent reports. “We do not tolerate hate crimes or threats founded in bias against any individuals or groups.”

Miss Holmes went on to praise Eugene police for arresting and charging Ramirez, and noted the UO president has intervened in the case, expressing “his concern and support for the fraternity.”

Miss Holmes’s statement concluded: “At UO, we are committed to diversity and creating a welcoming, supportive, and respectful community. We are grateful to the Eugene Police Department for their swift action related to the October 30 incident. In cases like this, student conduct procedures may also be initiated. . . . The university will continue to work with AEP to ensure that they have the resources and support needed to feel safe as a part of our campus community.”

In truth, though, what really happened was hardly worth a major incident.

Given the current atmosphere of modern American college campuses, Ramirez had likely been drinking and a confrontation between himself and members of the Jewish fraternity ensued.

As a direct result of political correctness and cultural Marxism, tyrannical ideologies institutionalized via mass media and mainstream academia in the West today, making mean or derogatory statements about non-whites, especially blacks and Jews, is now considered a crime in America.

“If every stupid, drunken college student who called another college student a nasty name were arrested, our jails would fill and our colleges and universities would empty,” Dr. Kevin Barrett ofTruthJihad.com explained to AMERICAN FREE PRESS in a recent interview. “I’m not in favor of drinking, stupidity, or name-calling, but I am in favor of common sense, and what we’re seeing in Oregon is not common sense.”

This reporter also spoke with Dr. Kevin B. MacDonald, editor of The Occidental Quarterly, a scholarly publication focusing on white identity and political interests.

“I abhor the ever-increasing penalties for expressing thoughts,” MacDonald told AFP. “In the U.S., as seen in the University of Oregon incident, universities, including public universities that should be held to First Amendment standards, routinely penalize students for certain types of speech. In other cases, people can lose their jobs for stating their beliefs. In Europe, it’s far worse, with individuals subject to legal sanctions, including fines and imprisonment.”

MacDonald was referring to the recent case of the colorful and politically incorrect French comedianDieudonné M’bala M’bala, who has performed a variety “anti-Semitic” comedic skits and performances to large French audiences. In many of his more controversial performances, Dieudonné mocks the Jewish fixation on the alleged “Holocaust” narrative of WWII, which objective scientists, scholars, historians, and other professionals have systematically debunked and exposedas one of modern history’s greatest deceptions.

In 2009, Dieudonné was convicted by a French court for “hate crimes,” resulting in a €10,000 ($10,750) fine. The French comedian challenged the ruling at the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR), located in Strasbourg, France, which “rules on individual or state applications alleging violations of the civil and political rights set out in the European Convention on Human Rights,”according to its official website.

On November 10, the ECtHR ruled against him, arguing “that laws on freedom of expression did not offer protection for anti-Semitic comments or statements denying the Holocaust,” The New York Times recently reported.

The organized Jewish community, led by the Anti-Defamation League (ADL) in the U.S., unsurprisingly praised the ECtHR decision. “Dieudonné is a recidivist anti-Semite who appeals to anti-Jewish prejudices for laughs. He mocks Holocaust survivors, invented an anti-Semitic salute, and has called for authorities to free the leader of the gang that murdered Ilan Halimi,” stated Jonathan A. Greenblatt, the CEO of the ADL, shortly after the Court’s decision. “While hate speech is constitutionally protected in the U.S., and properly so, we understand and respect the different legal regimes in European democracies. Dieudonné’s conduct clearly violated French law, and he should pay the consequences.”

Dr. Barrett found the prosecution of Dieudonné particularly disturbing.

“Common sense suggests that Jews, the richest and most powerful per-capita ethnic group in America, have profited mightily by playing the victimology card,” Dr. Barrett noted. “Billions in ‘Holocaust’ reparations from Germany, trillions looted from America and sent to support genocide in Occupied Palestine, and if anyone tells the truth about this, as Dieudonné has, they’re liable to be arrested for ‘hate speech.’”

Dr. MacDonald is skeptical of the ADL’s commitment to free speech in America.

“Despite the ADL’s statement that they believe the First Amendment is a fixture of American law, they have done all they can to enact laws on ‘hate speech,’ ” MacDonald pointed out. “In fact, they would love to have the First Amendment gutted by rulings of the Supreme Court.”

The ADL was one of the most ardent supporters of the “Hate Crimes Prevention Bill,” which was passed by the U.S. Congress in 2009. The bill is also known as the Matthew Shepard and James Byrd, Jr. Hate Crimes Prevention Act, and received overwhelming support from the organized Jewish community as well as other minority lobbying organizations. The bill is an absolute affront to the First Amendment and free speech in America.

GERMANY – MUNICH BANS ANTI-ISRAEL LECTURE BECAUSE OF HURT JEW FEELINGS

boycott-israel

Published On 09/25/2016 | By infostormer | Featured Articles, Jewish Problem, News

In Munich, the cultural affairs department banned an anti-Israel lecture because they were afraid it would hurt the feelings of Jews.

The fact of the matter is that Israel is an entity of global Jewish terrorism.  It should be destroyed.  The world would be in a much better place without it.

This shows how much power the Jews have in the West.  They have totally subverted our systems.  Most Western governments are more concerned about what is best or Jews and Israel than their own people.  This is another example of this.  Why the hell should the German government at any level give a damn if a lecture hurts the feelings of some rat faced skypes?  Because of the Holocaust hoax of 60 trillion?  lol

From Jerusalem Post:

Munich’s cultural affairs department pulled the plug on an anti- Israel lecture slated for Friday in a city-subsidized building, because the talk would have crossed the line into antisemitism.

Stefan Hauf, a spokesman for the mayor, told The Jerusalem Post on Thursday that the city’s cultural commissioner intervened to stop the lecture on “Antisemitism Today” organized by the Salam Shalom Working Circle Palestine-Israel association.

Munich’s cultural commissioner, Hans- Georg Küppers, said in a letter to Eine-Welt- Haus – where the lecture was to be held – that it was probable that “during the event the line between criticism of Israel and antisemitism will be crossed,” the Merkur news outlet reported.

Salam Shalom – a hardcore anti-Israel group – promotes the Boycott, Divestment, Sanctions campaign on its website targeting the Jewish state. ”Salam Shalom has no right to be in city rooms. Salam Shalom would be better located in the NPD headquarters,” Green Party city councilman Dominik Krause told the Merkur.

The NPD is the main neo-Nazi party in Germany.

Jew wants money to fight against free speech


Jewish Supremacists Reveal Internet Censorship Efforts

Desperate attempts by Jewish Supremacists to censor the Internet because of the danger it poses to their conspiracy have been revealed in a special inquiry held before the Israeli parliament.

stop-Jewish-censorship-sign

According to a report in the Jerusalem Post, the Anti-Defamation League is in an “ongoing relationship with Internet hosting company GoDaddy” to take down any website which it deems to be too revealing of Jewish extremism, and also “works with Facebook” for the same purpose.

According to the ADL representative, giving evidence during a Knesset hearing on the Internet and the threat it poses to Jewish Supremacy, the ADL has already succeeded in removing 30 sites hosted by Godaddy.

Knesset Immigration, Absorption and Diaspora Committee chairman MK Yoel Razbozov called for even further censorship, saying that “countries” need to enact legislation restricting free speech.

Representatives of the Foreign Ministry, the Ministry of Jerusalem and Diaspora Affairs, the Israeli Internet Association and the Anti-Defamation League, among other bodies, testified at the hearing.

According to the report, “Facebook is coming around, they just need time,” Ronald Eissens of the International Network Against Cyberhate added.

The World Zionist Organization has established a “communications center” for the internet and is “beginning two pilot courses for training Israelis to engage in this struggle,” WZO Department for Countering Anti-Semitism chief Yaakov Hagoel told lawmakers.

“I don’t see us winning the battle but at least we are putting up a fight,” he said.

Committee member MK Dov Lipman told The Jerusalem Post that he “fear[s] that we are fighting a losing battle,” saying that countering the facts was not a way forward, and that only outright censorship provided any solution.

“I am convinced that our focus should be on getting Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and urge websites to remove anti-Semitic materials and not with setting up our own sites and pages to negate the anti-Semitism. I will present this proposal to the chairman of the committee and will push hard for this to be the government’s direction.”


How Jewish Organizations Masquerade for “Human Rights” as They Support Jewish Supremacy!

By Dr. David Duke — The hypocrisy of the Jewish Supremacist “Anti-Defamation League” (ADL) in supporting the racist state of Israel while supposedly “opposing” racism in America has been highlighted once again with the construction of a brand new Jews-only housing project in occupied East Jerusalem.

housing-East-Jerusalem

The Jews-only housing project was announced this week by the Israeli state— the ultra-racist, supremacist state which the ADL, of course, fanatically supports.

According to a report in the Times of Israel, the Jewish state “gave approval Wednesday for the construction of 172 new homes for Jewish settlers in annexed East Jerusalem.”

The announcement comes hot on the heels of plans unveiled in Israel on June 5 for a further 3,200 “settler homes” in East Jerusalem and the occupied West Bank, all to be financed by the Israeli government.

All of these housing units are segregated and are reserved only for Jews.

The ADL has been completely silent on this, and all similar developments in their beloved “democratic” Israel.

To understand the full meaning of this development, consider what the reaction of the ADL and other Jewish groups would be if the US government had to build housing projects from which Jews were specifically excluded.

The ADL and the other Jewish Supremacist groups would be up in arms, screaming “discrimination,” “hate,” and “racism,” and their coreligionists who control the mass media would have banner headlines decrying “American Government Racism.”

In fact, it would be unthinkable for the US government to build housing units reserved for one race only, and to specifically exclude Jews.

The ADL has for many years pretended to be a “civil rights” organization, and has been at the forefront of desegregation programs in America and elsewhere.

To the present day, the ADL still proudly boasts on its website of its support for desegregation programs –but the same website simultaneously announces its support for Israel.

ADL-segregation

How does the ADL “justify” supposedly opposing racial segregation in America, but supporting racial segregation in Israel?

The answer is simple: the ADL (and other similar Jewish Supremacist hate groups such as the SPLC) do not actually care about human rights at all.

What they are actually all about is not “human rights,” but a deliberate program of drawing attention away from Jewish racism, both in America and in Israel.

For example, the ADL also boasts about the Jewish role in promoting homosexual marriage in America—but in Israel, homosexual marriage is illegal.

ADL-marriage

The ADL supports Israel—which engages in the wholesale ethnic cleansing of the Palestinian people, which prohibits marriages between Jews and non-Jews, which practices strict racial segregation, which has a racially-based immigration policy, and which rounds up, imprisons and deports non-Jewish illegal immigrants.

All of these policies would be a top priority for the ADL to oppose—if they were implemented in America.

But because they are implemented in Israel, the ADL and the Jewish Supremacist controlled media will not only give it a pass, but will actively cover up and hide these obvious examples of ultra-Jewish racism and anti-Gentile hatred.

* The ADL is also completely silent about the overt Jewish racism and discrimination against all races which has allowed Jews to dominate the Ivy League universities in America.

In truth every so-called “anti-racist” policy they have supported in America was only meant to destroy the traditional American 90 percent majority so they could take over the United States.

The following is one of the new graphics found in my new book, The Illustrated Protocols of Zion. It shows the Jewish supported efforts against so called “White Privilege” and the true “Jewish Privilege” that rules academia, Hollywood and media, banking and politics in America.

UK OPENS SECRET FILES FROM THE 1940S EXPOSING JEWISH TERRORISTS

jew-terrorists2

Published On 09/28/2016 | By infostormer | Jewish Problem, News

The UK has opened previously secret files from the 1940s exposing many of the Jewish terrorists that plagued Palestine.

jewish-terrorists

Israel was essentially founded on Jewish terrorism against the British and Palestinians.

One of the most notable Jewish terror operations was the bombing of the King David Hotel which resulted in the deaths of 90 people including several Brits.

From The Canadian Press:

The call to British military security forces came early in the morning, shortly after 1 a.m., and could not be ignored. The informant’s message was alarming: Assassins planned to kill the commander of British forces in Palestine the following morning; evasive action was needed.

The source didn’t know the details of the plan, but warned that Gen. Evelyn Barker would be attacked on the brief journey between his home in Jerusalem and his office at British headquarters. The assailants were militant Jews from the Stern Gang, determined to drive the British from the land in their bid for Jewish sovereignty.

Before dawn broke on Nov. 14, 1946, according to secret documents declassified Wednesday by the National Archives, Barker’s security team was notified of the imminent threat. He changed his route, other special precautions were put in place, and he arrived without incident.

Barker was particularly controversial because of his incendiary comments after militants bombed Jerusalem’s King David Hotel, used by the British as a political and military base, in July 1946, when Britain was still the administrative power in Palestine under an arrangement worked out in 1920, but was increasingly unable to control events as Jews and Arabs sought control.

The King David Hotel blast killed more than 90 people and infuriated Barker, whose offices were in the hotel.

He reacted by banning British troops from having any social or business dealings with Jews, saying that they would be punished “in a way the race dislikes as much as any, by striking at their pockets and showing our contempt for them.”

The plot against Barker is only one of hundreds of plans described in the newly public files that detail how British officials were tormented by the militants. The official British attitude toward the Jewish underground is summed up on the file’s title page: “Jewish Terrorist Activities in the Middle East.”

British influence was waning and the militants sensed a lack of resolve that could be exploited, said Saul Zadka, author of “Blood in Zion: How the Jewish Guerrillas drove the British Out of Palestine.”

“They realized getting rid of the British was the key to establishing Jewish sovereignty in Palestine,” he said.

Irgun Tz’va’i Le’umi (Etzel):
Background & Overview


Irgun: Table of Contents | “The Revolt” | Menachem Begin


Print Friendly and PDF

Armed Jewish underground organization, founded in 1931 by a group of Haganah commanders, who left the Haganah in protest against its defense charter. In April 1937, during the Arab riots, the organization split—about half its members returned to the Haganah. The rest formed a new Irgun Zeva’i Le’umi (abbr. Etzel), which was ideologically linked with the Revisionist Movement and accepted the authority of its leader, Vladimir Jabotinsky.

Etzel rejected the “restraint” policy of the Haganah and carried out armed reprisals against Arabs, which were condemned by the Jewish Agency. Many of its members were arrested by the British authorities; one of them, Shlomo Ben Yosef, was hanged for shooting an Arab bus. After the publication of the White Paper in May 1939, Etzel directed its activities against the British Mandatory autorities.

At the outbreak of World War II, the organization declared a truce, which led to a second split (see Lohamei Herut Yisrael). Etzel members joined the British Army’s Palestinian units and later the Jewish Brigade.

From 1943 Etzel was headed by Menachem Begin. In February 1944, Etzel declared war against the British administration. It attacked and blew up government offices, military installations and police stations. The Jewish Agency and the Haganahmoved against the Etzel in a campaign nicknamed the Sezon. Etzel joined the Jewish Resistance Movement and after its disintegration in August 1946, Etzel continued attacks on British military and government objectives.

In April 1947, four members of the organization were hanged in Acre prison. In May 1947, Etzel broke into the fortress at Acre and freed 41 prisoners. In July 1947, when 3 other Etzel members were executed, the I.Z.L. hanged two British sergeants.

After the Declaration of Independence, the Etzel high command offered to disband the organization and integrate its members into the army of the new Jewish state. Full integration was achieved in September 1948.

The Zionist Terror Network

 

Introduction

This booklet documents the background and criminal activities of Jewish Zionist terrorist groups, and especially the Jewish Defense League. Particular emphasis is given here to terror–including murder–against “thought criminals” who question the Holocaust story that six million Jews were systematically killed during the Second World War.

Zionist terrorists openly proclaim an arrogant Jewish-supremacist ideology and acknowledge their readiness to use violence against those who disagree with them. With a well-documented record of bigotry and crime, they pose a serious danger to our society, and to men and women everywhere who treasure freedom.

Meir Kahane and the Jewish Defense League

The most zealous non-governmental Zionist terrorist organization has been the Jewish Defense League. Its activists have been involved in a wide range of crimes, and the US Federal Bureau of Investigation has repeatedly cited it as a criminal terrorist group.

The Jewish Defense League was founded in 1968 by Rabbi Meir Kahane. Born Martin David Kahane in 1932 in Brooklyn, New York, he was the first-born son of an orthodox rabbi who was active in the “revisionist” movement of Zionist hard-liner Ze’ev Jabotinsky. Jabotinsky and other leaders of his movement were guests at the Kahane household while Martin (Meir) was a boy. As a youth, Kahane became an active member of the Jewish-supremacist Betar movement, which Jabotinsky had founded in 1925. Kahane’s first arrest came in 1947, when he was fifteen, for leading a group of Betar youth in an attack against visiting British foreign minister Ernest Bevin. (note 1)

Two of Jabotinsky’s most fervent followers went on to gain notoriety as leaders of Zionist terror groups, and, later, as prime ministers of Israel: Menachem Begin, who once headed the Irgun group, and Yitzhak Shamir, who headed the Lehi group (Stern gang). Shamir, for example, played a crucial role in the Lehi murder in November 1944 of British Middle East envoy Lord Moyne, and in the September 1948 assassination of Swedish United Nations peace mediator Count Folke-Bernadotte. (note 2)

For a time in the 1960s, Kahane led a double life. He lived and worked under the name of Michael King, keeping this identity secret even from his wife. During this period, he later related, he worked for the Central Intelligence Agency and for the Federal Bureau of Investigation. For the FBI he spied on the right-wing John Birch Society as well as on various left-wing student groups. (note 3)

Posing as the non-Jewish Michael King, he had affairs with a number of young women he picked up in New York bars. One of them was Gloria Jean D’Argenio, a (non-Jewish) 22-year-old model who worked under the name of Estelle Evans. After their meeting in 1966, they promptly began an affair. Never revealing his true identity, he even proposed marriage. After Kahane/King broke off the relationship a few weeks later, she attempted suicide by hurling herself into the East River, dying two days later (on Kahane’s 34th birthday). (note 4)

Kahane’s life changed dramatically in 1968, when he and several colleagues founded the Jewish Defense League. Brandishing guns and provocative slogans (“Every Jew a .22,” “Never Again”), Kahane’s JDL quickly attracted considerable media attention. Kahane pointedly exploited rising anti-black sentiment among Jews in the New York area. (note 5)

Kahane and his new organization received important and probably crucial support from two powerful allies: Israel’s right-wing Herut political party and the New York Mafia.

Between December 1969 and August 1972, Kahane’s JDL–with important support and guidance from Menachem Begin’s Herut party in Israel, top officers of Israel’s Mossad secret service, and several wealthy American Jewish businessmen–carried out a campaign of criminal attacks against Soviet Russian diplomats and other Soviet targets in the USA. The goal was to focus attention on and generate sympathy for Soviet Jewry, and to damage relations between the United States and Soviet Russia. (note 6)

On May 12, 1971, Kahane and a dozen other JDL members were arrested by federal agents for conspiracy to manufacture explosives. One day later, Kahane announced an alliance with a group founded by Mafia boss Joseph Colombo, Jr., a one-time killer who had risen to head the Colombo crime syndicate. “Kahane received substantial aid from the New York Mafia,” writes Israeli journalist Yair Kotler in his biography of the JDL founder. Until Colombo’s murder in 1971, relations between Kahane and the New York City mob boss were very close, and the two criminal chiefs worked closely together. (note 7)

Kahane claimed to have spent a total of three years in American prisons as a result of his militant activities. (note 8) During the early 1970s, Kahane abandoned the JDL and moved to Israel–returning on occasional visits to raise money. Building on the international notoriety he had gained as JDL leader, in 1976 he launched his radical Kach party. In 1984 he was elected to the Israeli Knesset (parliament) as his party’s only deputy. Meanwhile, the JDL’s New York chapter collapsed, and splinter groups emerged with names such as the “Jewish Direct Action,” the “United Jewish Underground,” “Save Our Israel Land,” and the “Jewish Defenders.” (note 9)

Kahane was assassinated on November 5, 1990, while addressing a meeting of supporters at a hotel in midtown Manhattan, New York City. (note 10)

Rabbi Kahane’s Ideology

In numerous speeches and essays, and in several books, Meir Kahane preached an arrogant and even genocidal message of Jewish supremacy and ruthless Zionism. For the JDL leader and his many fervent followers, any and all measures to further Jewish survival and welfare–including terror, dispossession and murder–are entirely justified. (note 11)

Typical of his passionate and outspoken prose style is a representative essay by Kahane that appeared in 1980 in a leading Jewish community paper. He wrote: (note 12)

…Vengeance is a fundamental Jewish concept that is a precept, injunction, commandment for the Jew…Vengeance becomes, thanks to the gentilized and perplexed era in which we live, a maligned thing…Let the government of Israel, which is responsible for the lives of its citizens, make the streets, buses, shops and homes of the Ishmaelites [Palestinians] perpetual places of terror and stark insecurity…Wipe away the bitter degradation of God’s name that is symbolized by Arab refusal to bow to Jewish sovereignty. A truly Jewish government is one that understands the need to…burn out the desecration by removing, burning out, the evil that is the Arab nation in our midst.

In another essay, this one published in 1973, Ka-hane emphasized Jewish invincibility. The day will come, he promised, when all non-Jews would acknowledge the superiority of the Chosen people: (note 13)

The Jewish people cannot ever be destroyed, but rather they and their G-d of History will emerge in days to come triumphant over the evils and foolishness of all other nations. Zion will and must emerge as the mount to which all peoples will turn and the Jewish L-rd will be the One before Whom all knees bend…

In an essay published in 1982, Kahane stressed the pitiless, either-or, us-or-them, nature of the struggle between Jews and their “enemies”: (note 14)

Let us look at events through Jewish eyes…Lebanon:…A war was begun [by Israel] against a “Palestinian” enemy–an entire people–which seeks to wipe out the Jewish state and the vast majority of its Jews. It was…a war unto the death, the utter destruction of the enemy, the instilling of total fear, terror, until he capitulates and acknowledges the L-rd.

Jewish and liberal democratic values are incompatible, Kahane often insisted: “I have said it a million times. Western democracy as we know it is incompatible with Zionism…The idea of a democratic Jewish state is nonsense.” (note 15) On another occasion he stated: “Democracy is for people who don’t have the truth. No earthly, temporal government has any relevance to the actions of the Jew when its orders and regulations are contrary to [Jewish] Torah law…Judaism has never been a democratic form of society.” (note 16)

A virtual obsession for Kahane was the brutal wartime treatment of Europe’s Jews. “Never Again,” the JDL slogan, pointedly referred to the Holocaust experience. In Kahane’s view, every non-Jew is a potential Nazi murderer. “As long as one gentile lives opposite one Jew, the possibility of a Holocaust remains,” he wrote. (note 17) The moral measure of every action, Kahane stressed, must be “is it good for the Jews?” Failure to act in accordance with this principle, he emphasized, will lead to “a new Auschwitz.” (note 18)

In his biography of Kahane, author Robert Friedman relates some of the quirkiness of the militant rabbi’s personality. Recalling his first meeting with him at his “Museum of the Potential Holocaust” in Jerusalem, Friedman wrote: “It struck me on that first encounter that Kahane was a man obsessed with sex and violence. He chattered incessantly about Arab men sleeping with Jewish women.” (note 19)

Kahane publicly called Arabs “dogs,” (note 20) and on at least one occasion promised to eliminate Arabs from Israel “like bug spray on these cockroaches.” (note 21) In numerous speeches, and in a 1980 book entitled They Must Go, Kahane outlined his plan for the forcible mass expulsion (or “transfer”) of Palestinian Arabs from the “Land of Israel”–that is, “greater Israel” (including the West Bank territory seized by Israel in 1967).

Kahane’s worldview was summed up in the “statement of principles” of the Kach movement, which he founded and headed. It begins with an arrogant description of “the Jewish People” as “special, chosen, holy and supreme.” (note 22) A primary Kach goal is

the transfer of the Arabs from all parts of Eretz Israel [the enlarged “Land of Israel”]. The Arabs’ presence in Israel ensures hatred, disturbances, and bloodshed. It is a time bomb, threatening the existence of the Zionist enterprise. The Arabs living in Eretz Israel must therefore be transferred to the Arab countries.

Kahane and his supporters agitated for an Israeli law that would criminalize sexual relations between Jews and non-Jews. (At it is, Jews were already forbidden from marrying non-Jews in Israel.) The proposed law would also outlaw a broad range of social contacts between Jews and non-Jews, including mixed schools, community centers, beaches, and even neighborhoods. (note 23)

Kahane and his sympathizers have never been particularly bothered by the parallels between his proposed law and Hitler’s “Nuremberg Laws” of 1935, which similarly banned sexual relations between Jews and non-Jews. (note 24)

As Kahane and other hardline Zionists have persistently pointed out, Jewish religious law clearly forbids Jews to marry non-Jews. (note 25) Similarly, Ka-hane never tired of citing Jewish religious scripture in support of his ruthless, uncompromising message. As American Jewish author Lenni Brenner has acknowledged, Kahane and his supporters are (note 26)

absolutely correct in insisting that Judaism was a tribal religion, replete with hereditary priests performing animal sacrifices. It was genocidal to the Amalekites, and tried to do so toward the Canaanites. There was much else that was fanatic and racist.

Support for Kahane and the JDL

Few prominent Israeli or American Jewish community leaders were ever willing publicly to support Kahane, and major American Jewish organizations–such as the American Jewish Committee, the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai B’rith, and the American Jewish Congress–took care to disavow Kahane and the JDL. At the same time, though–and in spite of his well-documented criminal record and his message of undisguised bigotry and arrogance–Kahane and the JDL enjoyed sympathy and considerable support from a surprisingly broad cross-section of American Jewry. Over the years, American Jewish businessmen gave millions of dollars to Kahane. (note 27)

At the conclusion of an address given in 1971 at a prosperous synagogue in Potomac, Maryland, during which the JDL leader praised the fire-bombing of a car, the well-to-do congregation gave Kahane a standing ovation. (note 28) Jackie Mason, a prominent American comedian, publicly supported Kahane and performed at a fund-raising benefit for the JDL in early 1972. “Democratic principles shouldn’t apply to Israel like they do to America,” explained Mason (like Kahane, an ordained Rabbi).(note 29) At a single fundraiser dinner in Boston in 1986, more than $20,000 was reportedly collected for Kahane. (note 30)

An indication of Kahane’s acceptance by even major American political figures came in 1972, when the JDL leader was invited by US Senator Henry “Scoop” Jackson to stand together with him on a New York City stage. This was during the powerful politician’s campaign for the Democratic party’s presidential nomination. (note 31) Another prominent JDL supporter was US Congressman Mario Biaggi, who represented the Bronx in Washington. (note 32)

A leading Jewish community paper, the sensational Brooklyn-based weekly Jewish Press (with a circulation of 130,000 to 160,000), took on Kahane as an editor and columnist, giving him an influential forum for his strident and often deliberately mendacious writing. (note 33)

America’s most influential daily paper, the (Jewish-owned) New York Times, gave Kahane a measure of respectability and legitimacy by publishing essays by him on its widely read “op ed” opinion page. (note 34) Kahane’s book, They Must Go, which calls for the genocidal mass expulsion of Palestinian Arabs from their ancient homeland, was published in 1980 by the “mainstream” New York publishing firm of Grosset & Dunlap.

American television, newspapers and magazines never subjected Kahane to even a fraction of the criticism and contempt they so readily directed against non-Jewish militants in groups such as the Ku Klux Klan, the “Aryan Nations” or “The Order,” which preached comparable messages and goals.

In Israel, Kahane won support and even a measure of fanatical devotion from many “ordinary” Jews, particularly “Sephardic” Jews from the Arab world (who now make up a majority of Israel’s Jewish population). Describing a visit by Kahane to the Israeli city of Afula in July 1985, during a period of Jewish-Arab tension there, journalist Yair Kotler wrote: (note 35)

His appearance was enough to heat up the atmosphere and incite the curly-haired young people on the street corners, who see each Arab as a potential threat to their social standing.
Those on the street corners shouted “Kahane the savior!”‘ They attacked Arabs, both from within Israel [proper] and the [occupied] territories who came to Afula to work. They threw stones at Arab cars…
They looted shops. The mob continued to shout “Kahane, Kahane! Death to the Arabs,” sweeping before it everyone it encountered…
His [Kahane’s] distorted face was seen by millions of viewers in Israel and throughout the world as he shouted, “The only answer is to throw the Arabs out. I want the Arabs out, out, out!”
The city was a volcano. Kahane had set the tone from afar, and fear and hatred were rampant. Passions ran high. The Arab was the enemy…Meir Kahane, the racist who had come to Israel from the United States, had lit a fire.

Kahane is dead, but the flames of bigotry and fanaticism he worked so hard to fan still burn. Indeed, recent surveys show that ever more Israeli Jews support, or are at least willing to seriously consider, the most brutal measures against the Arabs living under their control, including genocidal forced mass expulsion from the land of “greater Israel.”

 

Zionist Criminal Activities:
A General Overview

Over the years, Zionist militants have carried out hundreds of illegal actions against real or imagined “enemies,” including many acts of vandalism and harassment, and countless threatening phone calls. What follows here, though, are details about some particularly spectacular criminal operations. While JDL responsibility for many of them has been conclusively established, in some cases precise responsibility could not be established.

  • On January 26, 1972, a JDL team firebombed the New York City offices of a US-Soviet cultural exchange agency. Killed in the fire was a 27-year-old secretary (who happened to be Jewish). Thirteen others were injured. One participant, Sheldon Siegel, confessed to police that he had made the bomb, and provided the names of the others involved in the crime. Several years later Kahane acknowledged JDL responsibility for the crime. However, the case against the JDL members who were charged in the incident was eventually dismissed on a technicality. (note 36)
  • In May 1972, ten JDL thugs broke into the Austrian consulate in Washington, DC, and beat Austria’s ambassador to the US, Karl Gruber, as well as the building’s janitor. (note 37)
  • In May 1974, JDL members attacked Arab-American community activist Dr. Mohammed Mehdi with a lead pipe, sending him to the hospital with a broken back. It took nearly a year for the police to make an arrest, even though a perpetrator had appeared on television to boast of the deed. A short time later, Mehdi’s offices in Manhattan were almost totally destroyed in an apparent arson attack. (note 38)
  • On February 21, 1975, a US federal court found Kahane guilty of violating terms of a probation stemming from his 1971 felony conviction for manufacturing firebombs. He had been forbidden from having anything to do with bombs, dynamite or other weapons, or encouraging violence. Citing incriminating letters written by Kahane in which he had urged followers to assassinate Russian and Arab diplomats, the judge sentenced the rabbi to one year imprisonment. Kahane served eight months of this term in a Manhattan halfway house, which he was allowed to leave every day to eat in kosher restaurants. Kahane used this period of “imprisonment” to conduct JDL business. (note 39)
  • In 1975, 21-year-old JDL member David Kamaiko hijacked an executive helicopter in New York City, demanding $2 million ransom to buy guns for the JDL. Kamaiko shot the pilot before he was himself subdued. (note 40)
  • In 1978, Canadian JDL leader Joseph Schachter bombed the home of right-wing activist Donald Andrews. (note 41)
  • On April 11, 1982, JDL member Allan Goodman opened fire with a machine gun at a Muslim house of worship in Jerusalem, killing two Palestinian Arabs: an elderly man and a 20-year-old youth. After entering the mosque, he continued firing, critically wounding several people. Goodman, from Baltimore, Maryland, had received paramilitary training at the JDL’s Camp Jedel in New York state. In an interview, Kahane said of the crime, “There was nothing wrong with what he did…the act was perfectly correct.” (note 42)
  • In 1987, three members of the Jewish Defense League were arrested for their involvement in at least six bombing attacks carried out the New York area between 1984 and 1987. The accused were Jay Cohen, Sharon Katz and Victor Vancier, head of the JDL in the New York area. After admitting his role in the terror bombings, Vancier was sentenced in October 1987 to ten years imprisonment. Another JDL member, Murray Young, was sentenced to five years in prison. (note 43)
  • FBI officials believe that the JDL was behind the bomb blast in mid-August 1985 that killed Tscherim Soobzokov in Paterson, New Jersey, and a similar (although non-fatal) bombing attack in early September 1985 directed against Elmars Sprogis in Brentwood, New York. Soobzokov and Sprogis were falsely alleged to have been “Nazi war criminals.” (note 44)
  • In January 1991, Kurt Haber–identified in newspaper reports as a “Jewish Holocaust survivor”–was charged with making criminal threats against the Arab-American Anti-Discrimination Committee. (note 45)

Alex Odeh Murder

Perhaps the most widely-publicized crime in which the JDL has been implicated is the murder on October 11, 1985, of Alex Odeh, West Coast regional director of the American-Arab Anti-Discrimination Committee. Odeh was killed in a bomb blast when he entered his group’s office in Santa Ana, southern California. (note 46)

An FBI official announced in 1985 that the Jewish Defense League was believed responsible for the murder of Odeh and at least two other terrorist incidents on the East Coast. “We are attributing the three bombings to the JDL,” said FBI official Lane Bonner. (note 47) Similarly, an FBI report released in July 1986 cited “elements” of the Jewish Defense League as responsible for the murder of Odeh. (note 48)

Three JDL members were identified by US federal investigators in 1988 as the perpetrators of the bombing that took Odeh’s life. The accused assassins, who were born in the USA but fled to Israel to avoid punishment, are Keith Fuchs, Andy Green and Robert Manning. (note 49) Law enforcement officials in Los Angeles and New York have named Robert Manning–an important Jewish Defense League activist–as a suspect in at least four political bombings in 1985, including the one that killed Odeh. Manning, authorities said, had a two-decade history of violent activities that also included threats against producers of a television show. (note 50)

After joining the southern California chapter of the Jewish Defense League as a charter member in 1971, Manning quickly earned a reputation as a particularly tough street fighter. JDL chief Irv Rubin praised him as a “pretty strong boy. I’ve seen him fight. We tangled with Nazis in the streets, Arabs in the streets. He was a real active guy.” (note 51) In a 1988 court document, a federal prosecutor wrote: “It became known that [Manning], while purporting to act on behalf of the Jewish cause, on several occasions placed or threw explosive devices at locations of Arab antagonists.” (note 52)

The Israeli government sought to obstruct the FBI’s investigation of the Odeh slaying, the federal agency charged in November 1987. (note 53) Manning himself tried to evade extradition by claiming heart trouble, by taking 20 sleeping pills, and by charging that he was being wrongfully persecuted simply because he is a pious, orthodox Jew. In spite of all this, Manning was finally extradited to the United States in July 1993. (note 54)

Official Confirmation of JDL Terrorism

The US Justice Department’s Federal Bureau of Investigation has repeatedly characterized the JDL as a terrorist and criminal organization. A report issued in 1985 by the FBI’s Terrorist Research and Analytical Center confirmed: (note 55)

In FBI terrorism analyses published since 1981, responsibility for 18 terrorist incidents has been attributed to groups seeking to publicize past and present injustices suffered by the Jewish people. While claims for some of these acts have been made in the names of the “Jewish Defenders,’ “United Jewish Underground,” and “Jewish Direct Action,” 15 of the incidents were attributed to the Jewish Defense League (JDL), by far the most well known of these groups.

Also in 1985, the FBI named the Jewish Defense League as the second most active terrorist group in the United States. (Only Puerto Rican terrorists were more active during this period.) The FBI linked the JDL to 37 terrorist attacks carried out from 1977 to 1984. (note 56) Two years later, the FBI announced that Jewish extremist groups had carried out 24 terrorist acts from 1981 through 1986, 17 of which were the work of the Jewish Defense League. (note 57)

Another US federal government agency, the Department of Energy, similarly characterized the JDL in a report issued in 1986: (note 58)

For more than a decade, the Jewish Defense League (JDL) has been one of the most active terrorist groups in the United States. Although the JDL maintains that it is a political action group concerned with dramatizing the plight of Soviet Jewry and, in more general terms, protecting Jews and Jewish interests worldwide, the FBI has long classified it as a terrorist organization.
…The underlying purpose of the JDL is to reverse the mythical image of the Jews as victims. This militancy also fuels the anti-Soviet campaign designed to create and foment new sources of tension in Soviet-American relations…
The JDL, however, has also attacked Arab, Iranian, Iraqi, Egyptian, Palestinian, Lebanese, French, and German targets in the United States… In 1978 [for example], Egyptian diplomats were targeted…Attacks have also been staged by League chapters in France, Britain, Italy and Israel.

In more recent years, the official report went on,

The JDL has pursued a dual-track strategy of acts of civil disobedience and generally peaceful protest, along with acts of outright terrorism…Bombing is the JDL’s favorite tactic, accounting for 78 percent of all JDL incidents. Shootings are next, accounting for 16 percent, followed by arson, vandalism, and kidnaping, accounting for one percent each…
Since 1968, JDL operations have killed seven persons and wounded at least 22…Sixty-two percent of all JDL attacks are directed against property; 30 percent against businesses; four percent against academics and academic institutions; and two percent against religious targets.
Typically, an anonymous caller will claim responsibility for a specific terrorist act for either the JDL or one of its alleged subgroups, only to have an official spokesman for the JDL deny the group’s involvement the following day.
In the past, although the JDL was among the most active terrorist organizations in the United States, the threat it posed appeared to be primarily symbolic…Recent events, however, suggest that this view requires revision. The increase of militant Jewish terrorism represents not only an escalation of violence, but a significant change in targeting patterns, as well as a dramatic shift in tactics.
…The group appears to be concentrating its efforts on persons and institutions it considers to be enemies of Judaism and Israel. The targets now [1986] include alleged former Nazis and war criminals; Palestinian and Arab individuals and institutions; and persons and so-called research centers promoting views about the Holocaust that minimize the dimensions of Jewish suffering.
Perhaps the most far-reaching change, however, is the increasing use of assassination, both to draw attention to the terrorists’ causes and to eliminate perceived enemies of the Jewish people and Israel.

Mordechai Levy and the Jewish Defense Organization

Besides Kahane, two of the most prominent JDL activists have been Irv Rubin and Mordechai Levy. Each has been repeatedly arrested for criminal activities.

Until 1982 or 1983, Mordechai (Mark) Levy was one of the most active of Jewish Defense League activists. (note 59) Among his numerous arrests was one in 1981 as a suspect in a car bombing. (note 60) On one occasion he dressed up in a full regalia Nazi uniform to apply for a parade permit to march at Independence Hall in Philadelphia, apparently in an effort to alert the local Jewish community to the “dangers of neo-Nazism.” (note 61)

After leaving the JDL (supposedly because it was not “militant enough”) he founded the Jewish Defense Organization. He claimed that his group, based in New York City, had more than 3,000 members. (The real figure was probably no more than a few dozen.) In the years that followed, Levy and rival Zionist militant Irv Rubin engaged in increasingly bitter feuding.

In August 1989, Levy was arrested following a dramatic night-time confrontation with Rubin and other JDL members. Fearing that Rubin was trying to kill him, Levy went to the roof of the building where he lived and began spraying the lower Manhattan street with semiautomatic rifle fire, wounding an air-conditioning repairman as he sat in his parked van. (note 62) Levy was later sentenced to four and a half years imprisonment for injuring the 69-year-old repairman. (note 63)

On April 22, 1993, Jewish Defense Organization members attacked demonstrators who had gathered in Washington, DC, to protest the US Holocaust Memorial Museum. At least one person was seriously injured. A JDO spokesman told reporters that several members of his group had attacked and beat “four or five” of the 150 or so persons who had rallied to express their opposition to the Museum. (note 64)

One of the victims was David Willcox, a 52-year-old employee of the Washington Suburban Sanitary Commission. He was standing on a street corner when three men wearing black “paramilitary” uniforms and skull caps with the Star of David attacked, beating him on the head and legs with metal pipes. Willcox required hospitalization and 12 stitches in his head.

Two JDO members later confirmed the attack against Willcox. JDO spokesman Michael Schneider told a reporter that his group would continue to do “whatever is necessary ” to “defend” Jews, including attacking “enemies” in the street. The FBI said that it is investigating the attack against Willcox as a possible act of “domestic terrorism,” while city police announced that they were looking into the incident as a possible “hate crime.” (As we go to press, though, no arrests have been made.)

Irv Rubin

Since the early 1970s, Irv Rubin has been perhaps the most prominent Jewish Defense League activist and spokesman. After a time as leader of the group’s JDL’s West coast operations, he emerged as “national chairman” of the post-Kahane JDL. By 1979, Rubin had managed to get arrested 39 times in connection with JDL activities. (note 65)

In March 1992, Irv Rubin was arrested on suspicion of conspiring to commit murder. He was released a few days later after the Los Angeles district attorney’s office determined that police lacked sufficient evidence to hold him. (note 66)

In August 1992, Rubin’s JDL succeeded in forcing a Los Angeles restaurant and nightclub, the Largo, to cancel a concert on behalf of the Palestine Aid Society, to raise money for humanitarian assistance. Rubin warned Largo proprietor Mark Flanagan that he could “expect trouble” and an “angry protest” unless he cancelled the event. Soon after, Flanagan discovered that his business’ door locks had been destroyed by still-dripping fast-acting molecular glue. Then, just hours before the event was to begin, Flanagan canceled the concert out of fear that patrons might be victims of a possible JDL attack. (note 67)

Violence Against
Holocaust Revisionists

Among the most persistent targets of Jewish terrorists in recent years have been those who reject the generally accepted Holocaust story that six million Jews were systematically murdered in Europe during the Second World War.

In recent decades, a growing number of scholars have been citing an impressive body of evidence that raises serious doubts about many supposedly well-documented aspects of the Holocaust story. These “Holocaust revisionists” include acclaimed best-selling British historian David Irving, French professor Dr. Robert Faurisson and Dr. Arthur Butz of Northwestern University. (For more about Holocaust revisionism and the arguments of revisionist historians, write for a catalog of books, tapes and other material from the Institute for Historical Review.)

Incidents of violence against revisionist “thought criminals” have included:

  • George Ashley, a high school history teacher and supporter of the IHR, has been the target of several terrorist attacks because of his revisionist views. In April 1982, two bricks were hurled through the front window of his suburban Los Angeles home. One month later, two gasoline fire bombs were thrown against the front of his house, and in December of 1982, JDL criminals ransacked Ashley’s home, causing an estimated $26,000 in damage. (note 68) Mordechai Levy later boasted: “We warned him [Ashley] that if he continued his activity, he would pay a consequence…We warned that if the school board does not stop Ashley, we would stop him.” (note 69)
    In July 1984, Ashley received repeated telephone calls from someone who threatened to bomb his home. A JDL member identified by police from tape-recordings of the threats was later arrested.
    (note 70) In August 1984, JDL member Michael S. Canale was arrested on suspicion of making a bomb threat against George Ashley. (note 71)
    In May 1985, Ashley’s home was the target of a another bomb attack, in which no one was hurt. The letters “JDL” were spray-painted on the walkway leading to Ashley’s front door.
    (note 72) This attack was cited in a January 1986 federal government report: (note 73)
  • The following month [May 1985], the JDL claimed credit for bombing the house of George Ashley, Los Angeles-area high school teacher who had told students that the number of Jews killed by the Nazis during World War II was considerably less than the commonly accepted figure of six million, and that not more than a million Jews perished during the war.
  • Dr. Charles Weber, a contributor to the IHR’s Journal of Historical Review, had his car vandalized in two separate incidents during the month of April 1985. A note from the JDL, which threatened to escalate the attacks into a bombing, was left behind in the second incident. (note 74)
  • Dr. Reinhard K. Buchner, a professor of physics at California State University, Long Beach, and a member of the IHR Editorial Advisory Committee (1980-1983), was the victim of repeated JDL harassment in 1981, 1982 and early 1983. He was spat upon, physically attacked, threatened by phone, and harassed at his office and home. (note 75)
  • German-Canadian publisher Ernst Zündel, a prominent revisionist activist, has been repeatedly attacked by the Jewish Defense League. In December 1983, JDL thugs beat him on the steps of Toronto’s Old City Hall. The JDL carried out another attack against him on February 6, 1984.
    In September 1984, Zündel’s home in Toronto was damaged in a pipe-bomb attack. A group calling itself “The People’s Liberation Army of the Jewish Defense League” claimed responsibility in a phone call to a local television station. In January 1985, a JDL mob attacked Zündel, his attorney Doug Christie and Christie’s female legal secretary at the entrance to a Toronto courthouse.
  • The office of a German-American group was set on fire in 1985, apparently because of the organization’s skepticism about Holocaust claims. According to a report on terrorism issued in January 1986 by the federal Department of Energy, in June 1985 (note 76), an anonymous caller stated that the JDL had intentionally set fire to the offices of the German-American Political Action Committee in Santa Monica, California. The German-American group probably incurred the JDL’s wrath by its advocacy of the view that “Jews were not gassed by the Nazis…[and that] numbers and reports of predetermined extermination are greatly exaggerated by professional liars.”

Target: Institute for Historical Review

Since its founding in 1978, the Institute for Historical Review has been the leading American publisher of books and other materials questioning the Holocaust extermination story. For this reason, its office in southern California, as well as individual IHR employees, soon became targets of a systematic campaign that included a drive-by shooting, three firebombings, vandalization of IHR employee-owned automobiles, slashings of 22 tires of employee automobiles, JDL-organized demonstrations outside the IHR office, and numerous telephone threats during office hours and at night to IHR employees at home. So intense did the harassment become that the family of one IHR employee was forced to move. (note 77)

During the course of a JDL demonstration in front of the IHR office on March 19, 1981, Mordechai Levy and other JDL protesters attacked the car of the landlord’s agent, who had arrived to ensure security. While shouting threats, Levy smashed the right front passenger window of the man’s car as he drove off. (note 78)

A few weeks later, on April 5, 1981, JDL hoodlums staged another violent demonstration outside the IHR office, during which an IHR employee was thrown to the ground and beaten.

In the early morning hours of June 25, 1981, came the first firebombing attack against the IHR office. Fortunately, the arson device–similar to a “Molotov cocktail”–caused only minor damage. A man claiming to represent the “Jewish Defenders” announced responsibility for the attack in phone calls to news agencies. (note 79)

The second arson attack against the IHR office came on April 25, 1982, in which a copy machine, a few pieces of furniture and some records were damaged. In a telephone message to a local news agency, a group calling itself “the Jewish Defenders” claimed responsibility. (note 80)

In an attack on September 5, 1982, the IHR office was riddled with gunfire, demolishing two windows and damaging the front door. Additionally, a small arson device caused some slight damage to the front of the office. Later that day, as throughout the week, came a barrage of murder-threatening telephone calls. Although the caller’s voice was identified as that of Mordechai Levy, typically, no one was arrested in the case. (note 81)

Fire-Bombing Arson Attack

This terror campaign culminated in a devastating arson attack on the Institute’s offices and warehouse in Torrance on July 4, 1984–the 209th anniversary of American independence. Damage in the attack, carried out in the early morning hours of the 4th, was estimated at $400,000. (note 82)

In a special edition of the IHR Newsletter (August 1984), IHR Director Thomas Marcellus summed up:

As a physical entity, the Institute for Historical Review has virtually ceased to exist. Ninety percent of our book and tape inventory–the largest collection of revisionist historical literature to be found anywhere–has been wiped out. Every last piece of office equipment and machinery–including desks, chairs, files and shelves–lay in charred heaps of useless, twisted scrap. Manuscripts, documents, artwork, galleys and film negatives–products of more than six long years of a tough, dedicated effort to bring suppressed historical data to people the world over–no longer exist. Tens of thousands of books…estimated at over $300,000 in value, are gone…More than 2,500 square feet of space that was once the world’s most controversial publisher lies blackened in chaos and total ruin.

Two days later, JDL leader Irv Rubin showed up at the site of the gutted IHR offices to publicly praise the arson attack. The JDL, he declared, “wholeheartedly applauds the recent devastation of the offices of the Institute for Historical Review.” Denying any personal responsibility himself, Rubin said that the criminal attack had been carried out by a former JDL activist named Larry Winston (Joel Cohen). “I believe, with all my heart, that he [Winston/Cohen] had something to do with this” arson, Rubin declared. (note 83)

Although no one was ever arrested in connection with the 1984 firebombing, the sophisticated nature of the attack suggests that it could have been the work of trained operatives of a foreign governmental agency.

Apart from local news coverage, American newspapers and television reported almost nothing about this act of criminal “book burning.” This skewed media treatment moved noted journalist Alexander Cockburn to observe (in the pages of the liberal weekly The Nation): (note 84)

The outfit in the United States that does publish material belittling generally accepted accounts of the Nazi extermination of the Jews is called the Institute for Historical Review. I don’t recall much fuss when its offices in Torrance, California, were firebombed in July 1984. Perhaps this is what Mailer meant by “sophistication” in handling such heterodox opinion.

At the same time, though, a few prominent voices courageously spoke out against the attack. American historian John Toland–who received the Pulitzer prize for general non-fiction in 1971 for his book The Rising Sun–wrote to the IHR: (note 85)

When I learned of the torching of the office-warehouse of the Institute for Historical Review, I was shocked. And when I heard no condemnation of this act of terrorism on television and read no protests in the editorial pages of our leading newspapers or from the halls of Academe, I was dismayed and incensed…I call on all true believers in democracy to join me in public denunciation of the recent burning of books in Torrance, California.

British historian David Irving, author of numerous acclaimed, best-selling works of history, declared: “I was deeply shocked to hear of the fire-bomb attack on your premises.”

JDL Harassment of IHR Conference

In mid-February 1989, Jewish Defense League intimidation brought on the cancellation of a three-day Institute for Historical Review conference at two hotel sites in southern California.

Arrangements had been made months in advance to hold the Ninth IHR Conference at the Red Lion Inn hotel in Costa Mesa. Several days before it was to begin, the hotel received the first of a barrage of telephone threats warning that if it permitted the IHR gathering to take place as scheduled, there would be large, disruptive demonstrations in front of the hotel. It didn’t take many such threats to persuade general manager Russell Cox to cave in to the Zionist group, and to cancel the hotel’s contract with the IHR. Cox then added insult to injury by permitting JDL chief Rubin to hold a “news conference” in the hotel lobby.

Arrangements were then hastily made to relocate the IHR gathering to a nearby Holiday Inn hotel. However, just hours before it was to commence–and as attendees were arriving–the Holiday Inn likewise cancelled out, bowing to JDL threats similar to those made against the Red Lion Inn.

At this point, and with help from former US Congressman John Schmitz, IHR Director Tom Marcellus made emergency arrangements with Joe Bischof, proprietor of the “Old World Village” shopping center in Huntington Beach, to hold the IHR Conference there. Bischof refused to bow to JDL intimidation, including a demonstration at the site by a handful of sorry-looking placard-waving JDLers led by Rubin, who shouted insults at passersby. In spite of the disruption, and some inconvenience for attendees, the Ninth IHR Conference proved one of the most successful and high-spirited ever. (note 86)

JDL Thugs Attack Young Jewish Revisionist

On January 22, 1992, revisionist activist David Cole was attacked by JDL thugs at a meeting held at the University of California at Los Angeles. Before the meeting began, JDL leader Rubin first tried to push the youthful Cole down a flight of stairs. JDL hoodlums also harassed and pushed around meeting organizer Robert Morrissey. After the meeting commenced, JDL punks tried to shout down the speakers, and then threw food at Cole. Finally, a JDL thug assaulted Cole–who is Jewish–hitting him in the face and bloodying his nose. (note 87)

The tumult was recorded on videotape by a camera crew of the CBS television news program “48 Hours,” as well as by news crews of two local Los Angeles television stations. Neither of the two local stations mentioned a word of the incident in their nightly news broadcasts. Similarly, CBS officials decided not to air even a second of this outburst, not even in a segment about Holocaust revisionism that was part of the CBS television network’s hour-long magazine-format program “48 Hours” broadcast of February 26, 1992. Network officials apparently decided that scenes of Zionist hoodlums beating a young Jewish revisionist would not “fit” with the image of revisionism that CBS wanted to project to its many viewers. (note 88)

Violence in Europe

The Murder of François Duprat

In France, François Duprat–a gifted young historian, educator, and prolific writer–was murdered in 1978, thereby becoming the first person to be killed because of his support for Holocaust revisionism. Duprat had publicized the writings of former concentration camp inmate Paul Rassinier, distributed a booklet, Did Six Million Really Die?, and had published a revisionist article of his own, “The Mystery of the Gas Chambers.” (note 89)

As a result of such activism, the 38-year-old teacher was assassinated on March 18, 1978, when the car he was driving was blown up in a bomb blast. His wife, who was with him, lost the use of her legs in the attack. A Jewish “Remembrance Commando” and a “Jewish Revolutionary Group” promptly claimed responsibility for the murder. (note 90) So sophisticated was the attack that it is difficult to believe that no government agency was involved.

The Israel Connection

It is no secret that Israel provides training and weapons for local “Jewish defense groups” in the United States and many other countries. Victor Ostrovsky, a former intelligence case officer of the Mossad, Israel’s spy and secret service agency, confirms this connection in his much-discussed book, By Way of Deception. (note 91) One department of the Mossad, writes Ostrovsky, is the Tsafririm, which is

responsible for setting up Jewish defense groups, called “frames,” or misgerot, all over the world, now including some parts of the United States, where anti-Semitism is regarded as a threat…The main job is to help the leaders of Jewish communities outside Israel plan for their own security. Part of this is done through the hets va-keshet, or “bow and arrow,” Israel’s paramilitary youth brigades.
…Often youths from other countries are brought over [to Israel] to spend the summer learning about security, picking up such skills as completing obstacle courses, pitching tents, and learning how to use a sniper rifle and Uzi assault rifle. Still others learn upgraded security skills, such as how to build a slick, for hiding weapons or documents, when and how to do security checks, as well as fundamentals of investigation and intelligence gathering.

Israel provides weapons for the many “Jewish defense groups,” confirms Ostrovsky, indirectly through known arms dealers.

Tagar/Betar

In Europe the most important Zionist terrorist group is Tagar, the youth (or “student”) branch of the radical Zionist movement Betar. The Tagar/Betar group has carried out numerous criminal attacks against “enemies,” including Holocaust revisionists. Headquartered in Paris, Tagar/Betar has close ties with the Israeli government, and particularly with the political party of Begin and Shamir. Tagar is reportedly controlled by Israel’s covert operations agency, the Mossad. (note 92)

Tagar activists have often boasted of their determination to “strike” against anyone who “denies the Holocaust.” Tagar admitted responsibility for a physical assault against French revisionist historian Olivier Mathieu during a television interview in February 1990. Three months later, Tagar thugs sacked the “Ogmios” bookstore in Paris (which carried revisionist titles).

Tagar/Betar activists receive combat training along military lines from Israeli army officers. Tagar members wear paramilitary blue uniforms with white ties (the Zionist colors). Tagar/Betar has operated in Europe with the knowledge and approval of high French officials such as Prime Minister Laurent Fabius (who is Jewish). In more than one Tagar/Betar attack against opponents, French police have passively stood by. (note 93)

Tagar activists have operated in France under other names, including “Jewish Defense Organization” and “Jewish Combat Organization.” Private para-military groups are strictly forbidden in France, except Jewish ones. Between June 1976 and April 1991, such Jewish “militias” have carried out 50 attacks. In effect, Jewish terrorists in Europe can attack their “enemies” with impunity. (note 94)

Tagar has also been active in the United States. In February 1992, the “Tagar Student Zionist Organization at the Ohio State University” in Columbus organized a protest meeting against Holocaust revisionism. The group distributed a leaflet–which, typically, contained factual falsehoods–specifically attacking revisionist activist Bradley Smith. (note 95)

Robert Faurisson

Dr. Robert Faurisson–Europe’s most prominent Holocaust revisionist (and a member of the Editorial Advisory Committee of the IHR’s Journal of Historical Review)–was severely injured in a nearly fatal attack on September 16, 1989. (note 96)

After spraying a stinging gas into his face, temporarily blinding him, three assailants punched him to the ground and then repeatedly kicked him in the face and chest. The 60-year-old scholar, who had been out walking his poodle in a park in his home town of Vichy, suffered a broken jaw and severe head injuries. Physicians operated for four and a half hours to repair his jaw and treat a broken rib and badly swollen face.

A group calling itself “The Sons of the Memory of the Jews” claimed responsibility for the savage attack. In a statement, the group threatened: “Professor Faurisson is the first, but will not be the last. Let those who deny the Shoah [Holocaust] beware.”(note 97) While French police officially would acknowledge only that “three young Jewish activists from Paris” had carried out the assault, the attackers are strongly suspected to have been with the Tagar/Betar organization. (note 98)

Prominent individuals and organizations in France, along with the country’s most influential daily newspaper, Le Monde, condemned the attack. However, French-Jewish “Nazi hunter” Serge Klarsfeld sought to excuse or justify the crime. “Someone who has provoked the Jewish community for years should expect this sort of thing,” he said. “One cannot insult the memory of the victims without inviting the consequences.” (note 99)

While the September 1989 attack against Faurisson was the most vicious, it was neither the first nor the last. Between November 1978 and May 1993, he was attacked on ten separate occasions. (note 100)

Other Terrorist Incidents in Europe

  • On November 5, 1980, an arson attack destroyed the office, warehouse and printing plant in Sussex, southern England, of the firm that prints Did Six Million Really Die? and other revisionist publications of the Historical Review Press. Damage was estimated at 50,000 pounds. A leftist journalist, Manny Carpel, was found guilty of the crime, and sentenced to two and a half years imprisonment. (He served only a little more than a year.)
  • In January 1984, in Cologne, Germany, Professor Hermann Greive, a non-Jewish authority on Jewish religious writings, was shot to death by a member of Kahane’s Kach group. The murder was reportedly carried out in keeping with a Jewish scriptural injunction that demands death for non-Jews who “pry” into Jewish religious writings. (note 101)
  • On February 10, 1988, terrorists set fire to the automobile of German historian Ernst Nolte while it was parked at the Free University in Berlin, where he was a professor. An anonymous letter, signed with a five-pointed star, declared: “We attack Nolte because he is one of those who personally represents the continuity of fascism” and as co-founder of a “reactionary” group called the “Academic Freedom League.” Nolte had been widely criticized for his moderately revisionist views of Second World War history. (note 102)
  • On April 20, 1991, Betar/Tagar thugs carried out a violent attack against several persons who were to attend a conference in Paris on the French writer Marc Augier. (Under the pen name of Saint-Loup, Augier wrote a series of books on the French “Legion of Volunteers,” which fought on the eastern front during the Second World War.) Three or four of the victims were hospitalized. One, a 67-year-old woman, was in a coma for two months. Two Tagar members were arrested in connection with the attack, but two and a half years later they had still not been brought to trial. (note 103)
  • A bookstore in Paris had to be shut down for good in 1992 after repeated violent attacks by Jewish militants. The bookstore was targeted because it sold revisionist titles and was operated by revisionist publisher Pierre Guillaume.
  • On October 19, 1992, a team of about 30 Betar activists shoved and insulted pedestrians, smashed automobiles, and threw tear gas at police in the central plaza of the German city of Rostock. The group was led by the “Nazi-hunting” (and anti-revisionist) husband-wife team of Serge and Beate Klarsfeld. The Betar activists, some of them carrying Israeli flags, insulted passersby with shouts of “Dirty Germans! Dirty Nazis!”. (note 104)
  • In December 1992, the chief of the Jewish Defense League in Israel announced that he was sending teams of killers to Germany to murder “neo-Nazis.” Every German who cries “Heil Hitler,” or otherwise identifies himself as a Nazi, declared 33-year-old Rabbi Baruch Ben-Joseph (Baruch Green), is a target for death. (note 105) Prominent German far-right political figures are not the only persons on the Israel JDL’s hit list, confided one JDL member: “Persons behind the scenes are often more important, such as the professor who denies or whitewashes the Holocaust in a book.” (note 106)

Conclusion

As this report shows, non-governmental Zionist terrorism has been a problem for more than twenty years. It remains a serious problem today.

Espousing Jewish supremacy, the Zionist terrornetwork operates internationally, linking Israel, Europe and the United States. In addition to the suffering and destruction resulting directly from its many crimes, the network’s campaign of bigotry fosters a dangerous climate of hate and intolerance. Through intimidation, threat and violence, Jewish-Zionist terrorists have succeeded in silencing numerous voices. Many others have never spoken up out of fear that they might likewise become victims.

Particularly alarming is the important support provided to these criminal groups by the government of Israel. This official collaboration poses a threat not only to the freedom and security of individuals in many countries, but to the very freedom and sovereignty of nations.

At the same time, though, the danger should not be exaggerated. Zionist power is formidable but not limitless.

For one thing, Jewish militants are often so inept and mutually suspicious that they squander much of their energy on attacks against each other. (note 107)

Moreover, the number of individuals and organizations that Zionist militants perceive as “anti-Semitic enemies” has increased so dramatically in recent years that any one person or group is less likely to be singled out for attack. (Even the much-feared “anti-Semite” epithet has lost much of its impact. In 1991, an Israeli government cabinet minister denounced President George Bush as “anti-Semitic” because he wasn’t acting quickly enough in approving a $10 billion loan guarantee to Israel.)

The readiness of Zionist militants to use violence against those whose views they reject is an implicit admission of moral and intellectual weakness. By resorting to violence against Holocaust revisionists and others, Zionist fanatics inherently acknowledge their inability to discredit their adversaries’ arguments in free and open debate. Each new act of intimidation and violence only serves to further underscore this intellectual impotence.

In the long run, ideas and arguments cannot be destroyed by violence. Holocaust revisionism, in particular, has made such strides in so many countries in recent years that it can no longer be effectively suppressed.

    The Manning case was the subject of two revealing articles in the influential Jewish community weekly Jewish Press (Brooklyn), July 5, 1991. The first, “Israel’s Chief Rabbinate: Torah Law Forbids Extradition of Mannings” (p. 2), reported that leading Israeli rabbis had declared that the extradition of Robert Manning and his wife from Israel to the United States would be a violation of Jewish “Torah Law,” or Halacha. The article went on: “Rabbi Shaul Yisraeli, a prominent member of the Chief Rabbinate, said that he always had opposed the extradition agreement Israel has with other countries because it is contrary to Torah Law.” The second article, “More On the Mannings: What the Feds Are Really After” (p. 56C), related: “The [Jewish] Shulchan Aruch and the Rambam state explicitly that it is absolutely forbidden to send a Jew into the hands of a Gentile. In the words of the Rambam, ‘It is forbidden to send a Jew into the hands of the Gentile, be it his money or his body…one who does so has no portion in the World to Come’.”

    One condition for Manning’s extradition to the US was that he would not be charged or prosecuted for his role in the Odeh killing. In October 1993, a federal jury in Los Angeles found Robert Manning guilty of complicity in the 1980 bomb death of a secretary at a computer company, 32-year-old Patricia Wilkerson.

Zionist Bombing In Jerusalem 1946

This clip is from episode one of a British-made documentary from 2002 titled ‘The Age Of Terror’, and examines the bombing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem on 22nd July 1946 by Zionist-Jewish terrorists, in which the south wing of the hotel, then occupied by British civil-military authorities, was bombed killing ninety-one people. Twenty-eight of the victims were British, forty-one Arabic, while seventeen were Jewish.

The Zionist terrorists who carried-out the attack were known as the Irgun, and were led by a future prime minister of Israel, Menachem Begin. The King David Hotel bombing was an act of terrorism that is widely-considered to be the first real incidence of 20th century terrorism. It is most significant indeed that the narrator – British actor Sir Ian McKellen – unequivocally states that Jews were the first terrorists of the 20th century. Sir Ian also states that terrorists of the future learned from the example set by Zionist Jews in 1946. He is correct on both points. That Jews invented modern-day terrorism is an indisputable fact. The Zionist state of Israel is the mother of terrorism as we know it.

It is somewhat ironic, although not at all surprising, that an Israeli should also be the architect of the ‘war on terror’. His name? Benjamin Netanyahu, another who has held office as prime minister of Israel. And also it is important to take a note of the dress code of the terrorists? If all failed on the day who would shoulder the blame of the attack on the innocent people? The Muslim Arabs no less, now can we draw comparisons to the same type of attack on civilians over half a century on. You decide!

Turkey’s “Illegal Invasion” of Syria: Operation “Euphrates Shield” Turns Into Operation “Occupation”

Turkey’s “Illegal Invasion” of Syria: Operation “Euphrates Shield” Turns Into Operation “Occupation”By Salman Rafi Sheikh

Turkish President Erdogan in USA

Turkey’s operation ‘Euphrates Shield’ that had originally begun as the operation to drive the Kurdish militias back to the eastern side of Euphrates River is now turning into a mission to create a ‘safe zone’ inside Syria to reinforce not only its own position in the region but also to buttress the Turkey-backed militias controlling the eastern part of Aleppo city.

The decision has come at a time when US-Russia sponsored ceasefire has failed to hold and when battles on various fronts have once again escalated to the point of extremely heightened confrontation. This particular course of action is likely to put Turkey back on confrontation course with Syria and Russia and pave the way for the NATO forces’ direct entry in the conflict. Some recent most developments strongly indicate that things are now turning to this direction.

President Recep Erdogan redefined the scope of ‘Euphrates Shield’ in a major statement on Monday, September 19. Having first taken over the Syrian border towns of Jarablus al-Rab, Turkish troops are “now going down as far as al-Bab”, i.e., 30 kilometres further inside the Syrian territory, as he put it. Erdogan posed the question that is on everyone’s lips: “But why are you going down there?” Then, he offered an answer himself: “We need to rid these places from being a threat to us”. Simple though it looks, Turkey’s decision indicates the critical turn the Syrian-conflict is likely to take in the montsh to come.

One day after Erdogan’s announcement, the Turkish government submitted a motion to the parliament for extending the mandate authorizing the Turkish Armed Forces to take military action in Syria. The proposal seeks one more year authorization for the government to carry out cross-border military operations against “terrorist threats” and allows deployment of foreign troops on Turkish territory too.

The new plan, to put is simplest terms, is to create a safe zone in Syria the size of the Grand Canyon, a campaign that could be one of the biggest foreign military interventions in its modern history. Needless to say, Erdogan’s new plan involves political and military risks. Militarily, this plan implies deployment of thousands of Turkish soldiers in Syria for years and increase risks of a possible military confrontation with Syrian forces as also with its biggest allies: Russia and Iran. Politically, it is likely to put its relations with regional and extra-regional powers on an entangled path. Already, Erdogan has largely ignored the criticism from Moscow, Tehran and Damascus that the Turkish incursion is a violation of international law and an infringement of Syria’s sovereignty (read: Erdogan outlined this plan only four days after the visit by the Russian Chief of General Staff Gen. Valery Gerasimov to Ankara on September 15).

However, it is not this side of the conflict that Erdogan is set to annoy, his drive against Kurds, many believe, is also likely to further fracture Turkey’s relations with the US. However, given the lukewarm attitude of Western powers, including the US, towards the concept of ‘safe zone’, this is least likely to happen. It is so because Erdogan seems to have anticipated that when a zone actually materializes, its raison d’etre as a strategic foothold inside Syria will at once become obvious to NATO. Hence, the September 20 motion, which is most likely to be passed by the parliament in its upcoming session, to authorize deployment of foreign (NATO/US) troops in Turkey and the related authorization to use Turkish territory as a transit route too.

Needless to say, there is no love lost between Erdogan and Kurdish militias and Turkey’s moves directly indicate that its primary motivation is to contain the Kurdish militias in a corner. In the first week of September, Turkey’s defence minister said the YPG should not be allowed to lead any operation on Raqqa and that “local forces” should be used instead. He added that Turkey would not tolerate the YPG extending their territory “by using the Daesh operations as an excuse”.

On Tuesday, September 5, Erdogan was reported to have said he and the US president Barack Obama were seeking to work together to push ISIL out of Raqqa. But like Turkey’s fight for Jarabulus and towns on the Syrian border, the battle for Raqqa carries more significance for Erdogan than the removal of ISIL, for it is mainly about limiting the gains of the YPG and expanding Turkey’s influence in Syria.

“Raqqa is one of the issues the US and Turkey are currently discussing. We need to demonstrate our presence in the region. If not, the terrorist groups such as Daesh, the PKK and the Syrian offshoot the People’s Protection Units [YPG] will occupy the vacuum,” he said, according to the pro-government Daily Sabah newspaper.

This is quite evident that any on-the-ground involvement in the push for Raqqa by Turkey would bring its forces on to a battlefield that the YPG-dominated Syrian Democratic Forces (SDF) have long been contesting. The move could also see Turkey’s troops, along with the rebel groups it supports, passing through or near areas which Syrian Kurds regard as their heartland.

In this context, the current push for the control of al-Bab carries a double advantage for Ankara. Firstly, Ankara estimates that it would give a major push for its project to create a ‘safe zone’ inside Syria, which will be free of attack by Russian and Syrian jets or ground forces and become a de facto Turkish enclave. Secondly, it also estimates that the control of al-Bab, which is only 50 kilometres northeast of Aleppo city, would enable Turkey to significantly reinforce the rebel forces controlling the eastern part of Aleppo city.

The primary question that one must be asking is: what critical objective(s) Erdogan is seeking to materialize out of this expanded military presence in Syria? By pushing for the control of al-Bab, Raqqa and Aleppo city at the same, not only is Turkey planning to drive the Kurds out of the focus but also preparing to become a major negotiator/stakeholder, alongside and on part with US and Russia, in any final settlement of the conflict. How did Erdogan achieve this feat? Simply put, he has quite stealthily inserted Turkey into the crucial fault lines in regional politics by cunningly exploiting the geopolitical rivalry between the US and Russia in Syria and the related ‘great game’ unfolding in the Black Sea region. His plan, in this context, is to maintain enough Syrian territory under his occupation for as long as the new US president arrives next year and the agenda for “regime change” in Syria is reborn.

America’s “Humanitarian War” against the World

US-Nuclear-War

The following  text is a point by point thematic summary of Prof. Michel Chossudovsky‘s presentation at the Science for Peace Conference, Academy of Sciences, Malaysia. Kuala Lumpur, 15-16 August 2016

Introduction

Historically, science has supported the development of the weapons industry and the war economy. “Science for Peace” indelibly requires reversing the logic whereby commissioned  scientific endeavors are directed towards supporting what President Eisenhower called “The Military Industrial Complex”.

What is consequently required is a massive redirection of science and technology towards the pursuit of broad societal objectives. In turn, this requires a major shift in what is euphemistically called “US Foreign Policy”, namely America’s global military agenda.

Military Affairs: The Current Global Context 

The world is at a dangerous crossroads.  The United States and its allies have launched a military adventure which threatens the future of humanity.

Under a global military agenda, the actions undertaken by the Western military alliance (U.S.-NATO-Israel) in Afghanistan, Libya, Yemen, Pakistan, Palestine, Ukraine, Syria and Iraq are coordinated at the highest levels of the military hierarchy. We are not dealing with piecemeal military and intelligence operations. Major military and covert intelligence operations are being undertaken simultaneously in the Middle East, Eastern Europe, sub-Saharan Africa, Central Asia and the Asia Pacific region.

The current situation is all the more critical inasmuch as a US-NATO war on Russia, China and Iran is part of the US presidential election debate. It is presented as a political and military option to Western public opinion.

The US-NATO military agenda combines both major theater operations as well as covert actions geared towards destabilizing sovereign states. America’s hegemonic project is to destabilize and destroy countries through acts of war, support of terrorist organizations, regime change and economic warfare.

U.S. and NATO forces have been deployed in Eastern Europe including Poland and Ukraine. In turn, military maneuvers are being conducted at Russia’s doorstep which could potentially lead to confrontation with the Russian Federation.

The U.S. and its allies are also threatening China under President Obama’s “Pivot to Asia”.

The U.S. led airstrikes initiated in August 2014 directed against Iraq and Syria under the pretext of going after the Islamic State are part of a scenario of military escalation extending from North Africa and the Eastern Mediterranean to Central and South Asia.

THE HISTORY OF NUCLEAR WAR AND “COLLATERAL DAMAGE”  

“We have discovered the most terrible bomb in the history of the world. It may be the fire destruction prophesied in the Euphrates Valley Era, after Noah and his fabulous Ark…. This weapon is to be used against Japan … [We] will use it so that military objectives and soldiers and sailors are the target and not women and children. Even if the Japs are savages, ruthless, merciless and fanatic, we as the leader of the world for the common welfare cannot drop that terrible bomb on the old capital or the new. …  The target will be a purely military one… It seems to be the most terrible thing ever discovered, but it can be made the most useful.” (President Harry S. Truman, Diary, July 25, 1945)

“The World will note that the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima a military base. That was because we wished in this first attack to avoid, insofar as possible, the killing of civilians..” (President Harry S. Truman in a radio speech to the Nation, August 9, 1945).

[Note: the first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945; the Second on Nagasaki, on August 9, on the same day as Truman’s radio speech to the Nation]

(Listen to Excerpt of his speech, Hiroshima audio video)

Hiroshima after the bomb

Is Truman’s notion of “collateral damage” in the case of nuclear war still relevant? Publicly available military documents confirm that nuclear war is still on the drawing board  of the Pentagon.

Compared to the 1950s, however, today’s nuclear weapons are far more advanced. The delivery system is more precise. In addition to China and Russia, Iran and North Korea are targets for a first strike pre-emptive nuclear attack.

US military documents claim that the new generation of tactical nuclear weapons are harmless to civilians.

Let us be under no illusions, the Pentagon’s plan to blow up the planet using advanced nuclear weapons is still on the books.

War is Good for Business:

Spearheaded by the “defense contractors” (Lockheed Martin, Northrop Grumman, Boeing, British Aerospace  et al), the Obama administration has proposed a one trillion dollar plan over a 30 year period to develop a new generation of nuclear weapons, bombers, submarines, and intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBM) largely directed at Russia and China.

War with Russia: From the Cold War to the New Cold War

Blowing up Russia, targeting Russian cities is still on the Pentagon’s drawing board.  In the words of Hillary Clinton, the nuclear option is on the table.  Preemptive nuclear war is part of her election campaign.

GLOBAL WARFARE

The US has formulated a global war scenario, which is defined in military documents.

There are three major regional deployments of US-NATO which threaten Global Security:

  1. Eastern Europe on Russia’s Western Frontier, with the deployment of US-NATO military hardware on Russia’s doorstep
  2. “The Pivot to Asia” largely directed against China
  3. The Middle East and North Africa, extending to Central Asia

In the above regions, the use of nuclear weapons on a preemptive basis is contemplated against both nuclear and non-nuclear states.

In other regions of the World including Latin America and sub-Saharan Africa, non-conventional forms of warfare are envisaged including destabilization,  ”regime change”,  covert support to terrorist organizations, economic warfare.

1.  THREATENING RUSSIA ON ITS WESTERN FRONTIER

Russia is threatened on its Western frontier with the US-NATO deployment of the so called missile defense system.

A pro-US regime has been installed in Kiev which integrates two prominent Neo-Nazi Parties.

Neo-Nazis are heavily integrated in Ukraine’s National Guard and military. The US government is channeling financial support, weapons and training to a Neo-Nazi entity –which is part of The Ukraine National Guard– The Azov Battalion (Батальйон Азов) is  under the jurisdiction of the Ministry of Internal Affairs, the equivalent of America’s Homeland Security.

2. “PIVOT TO ASIA”:  SOUTH CHINA SEA

China is threatened by the US military in the South China Sea

WAR WITH CHINA IS CURRENTLY ON THE DRAWING BOARD OF THE PENTAGON AS OUTLINED IN A RAND REPORT COMMISSIONED BY THE US ARMY

 

 

Washington is actively involved in creating divisions between China and its neighbours.

The objective is to draw South East Asia and the Far East into a protracted military conflict by creating divisions between China and ASEAN countries, most of which are the victims of Western colonialism and military aggression: Extensive crimes against humanity have been committed against Vietnam, Cambodia, Korea, the Philippines, Indonesia. In a bitter irony, these countries are now military allies of the United States.

Bilateral economic relations with China are destabilized. The Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP) is a US hegemonic project which seeks to control trade, investment, intellectual property, etc in the Asia Pacific region.

THAAD MISSILE DEPLOYMENT IN SOUTH KOREA DIRECTED AGAINST CHINA

THAAD missiles are deployed in South Korea, against China, Russia and North Korea.  Washington states that THAAD is solely intended as a Missile Shield against North Korea.

US-NATO WAR IN THE MIDDLE EAST AND NORTH AFRICA (MENA)

Meanwhile, under the pretext of  waging a “war on terrorism”, US-NATO are intervening militarily in the broader Middle East Central Asian region extending from the Mediterranean to Central Asia: Afghanistan, Iraq, Libya, Syria and Yemen, resulting in several million civilian deaths.

THe objective is to destabilize and destroy sovereign countries and to displace secular governments under regime change.

The next stage of the Middle East war is Iran.

The Global War on Terrorism is a Big Lie. Al Qaeda is a Creation of US Intelligence

From the outset of the Soviet-Afghan war in 1979 to the present, various Islamic fundamentalist paramilitary organizations became de facto instruments of US intelligence and more generally of the US-NATO-Israel military alliance.

The US has actively supported Al Qaeda affiliated terrorist organizations since the onslaught of the Soviet Afghan War.  Washington has engineered the installation of Islamist regimes in Afghanistan and Pakistan. It has destroyed the fabric of secular societies.

Confirmed by Israeli intelligence media,  the Al Qaeda opposition fighters in Syria are recruited by US-NATO and the Turkish high command.

They are the foot-soldiers of the Western military alliance, with special forces in their midst. The Al Qaeda affiliated “moderate” terrorist organizations in Syria are supported by Saudi Arabia and Turkey.

The counter-terrorism agenda is bogus. It’s a criminal undertaking. What is being bombed is the civilian infrastructure of a sovereign country.

The Historical Origins of al Qaeda

In this video-footage President Carter’s National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brzezinski (1979) arrives in a helicopter and speaks to a translator in front of a seated crowd of Mujahedeen:

‘We know of their deep belief in god – that they’re confident that their struggle will succeed. – That land over-there is yours – and you’ll go back to it some day, because your fight will prevail, and you’ll have your homes, your mosques, back again, because your cause is right, and god is on your side.’

The video-footage can be found in the documentary series “Cold War” (Episode #24, Soldiers of God, 1975-1988), Turner Original Productions (Time Warner), 1998. Speaker Kenneth Branagh.

The Central Intelligence Agency using Pakistan’s ISI as a go-between played a key role in training the Mujahideen. In turn, the CIA-sponsored guerrilla training was integrated with the teachings of Islam. The madrasahs were set up by Wahabi fundamentalists financed out of Saudi Arabia:

Destroying National Sovereignty and Secular Societies, Installing an Islamic State (Made in America)

What has been the fate of Afghanistan.

A progressive secular state in the 1970s and early 1980s has become a US failed State integrated by US supported Al Qaeda terrorists. This is the model that US-NATO want to impose on Syria, Iraq, Libya: Destroy national sovereignty and replace it with an Islamic State which conforms to Washington’s demands.

Kabul University in the 1980′s

 

Unknown to the American public, the US spread the teachings of the Islamic jihad in textbooks “Made in America”, developed at the University of Nebraska:

… the United States spent millions of dollars to supply Afghan schoolchildren with textbooks filled with violent images and militant Islamic teachings, part of covert attempts to spur resistance to the Soviet occupation.

The primers, which were filled with talk of jihad and featured drawings of guns, bullets, soldiers and mines, have served since then as the Afghan school system’s core curriculum. Even the Taliban used the American-produced books,..

The White House defends the religious content, saying that Islamic principles permeate Afghan culture and that the books “are fully in compliance with U.S. law and policy.” Legal experts, however, question whether the books violate a constitutional ban on using tax dollars to promote religion.

… AID officials said in interviews that they left the Islamic materials intact because they feared Afghan educators would reject books lacking a strong dose of Muslim thought. The agency removed its logo and any mention of the U.S. government from the religious texts, AID spokeswoman Kathryn Stratos said.

“It’s not AID’s policy to support religious instruction,” Stratos said. “But we went ahead with this project because the primary purpose . . . is to educate children, which is predominantly a secular activity.”

… Published in the dominant Afghan languages of Dari and Pashtun, the textbooks were developed in the early 1980s under an AID grant to the University of Nebraska -Omaha and its Center for Afghanistan Studies. The agency spent $ 51 million on the university’s education programs in Afghanistan from 1984 to 1994.” (Washington Post, 23 March 2002)

 

 

CONCLUDING REMARKS 

War is not an inevitable process. War can be prevented through mass action.

War criminals occupy positions of authority. The citizenry is galvanized into supporting the rulers, who are “committed to their safety and well-being”. Through media disinformation, war is given a humanitarian mandate.

The legitimacy of the war must be addressed. Antiwar sentiment alone does not disarm a military agenda.

The corporate backers and sponsors of war and war crimes must also be targeted including the oil companies, the defense contractors, the financial institutions and the corporate media, which has become an integral part of the war propaganda machine.

There is a sense of urgency. Today, the antiwar movement is virtually defunct.

What is the Truth

The real threat to global security emanates from the US-NATO-Israel alliance, yet realities in an inquisitorial environment are turned upside down: the warmongers are committed to peace, the victims of war are presented as the protagonists of war.

The homeland is threatened.

The media, intellectuals and the politicians, in chorus, obfuscate the unspoken truth, namely that the US-NATO led war destroys humanity.

When the lie becomes the truth there is no turning backwards.

When war is upheld as a humanitarian endeavor, Justice and the entire international legal system are turned upside down: pacifism and the antiwar movement are criminalized. Opposing the war becomes a criminal act. Meanwhile, the war criminals in high office have ordered a witch hunt against those who challenge their authority.

The Big Lie must be exposed for what it is and what it does.

It sanctions the indiscriminate killing of men, women and children.

It destroys families and people. It destroys the commitment of people towards their fellow human beings.

It prevents people from expressing their solidarity for those who suffer. It upholds war and the police state as the sole avenue.

It destroys both nationalism and internationalism.

Breaking the lie means breaking a criminal project of global destruction, in which the quest for profit is the overriding force.

ACTIONS

1. The role of media disinformation in sustaining the military agenda is crucial.

We will not succeed in our endeavours unless the propaganda apparatus is weakened and eventually dismantled. It is essential  to inform our fellow citizens on the causes and consequences of the US-led war, not to mention the extensive war crimes and atrocities which are routinely obfuscated by the media. This is no easy task.  It requires an  effective counter-propaganda program which refutes mainstream media assertions.

It is essential that the relevant information and analysis reaches the broader public.   The Western media is controlled by a handful of powerful business syndicates. The media conglomerates which control network TV and the printed press must be challenged through cohesive actions which reveal the lies and falsehoods.

2. There is opposition within the political establishment in the US as well as within the ranks of the Armed Forces.

While this opposition does not necessarily question the overall direction of US foreign policy, it is firmly opposed to military adventurism, including the use of nuclear weapons. These voices within the institutions of the State, the Military and the business establishment are important because they can be usefully channeled to discredit and ultimately dismantle the “war on terrorism” consensus.  The broadest possible alliance of political and social forces is, therefore, required to prevent a military adventure which in a very real sense threatens the future of humanity.

3. The structure of military alliances must be addressed. A timely shift in military alliances could potentially reverse the course of history.

Whereas France and Germany are broadly supportive of the US led war, there are strong voices in both countries as well as within the European Union, which firmly oppose the US led military agenda, both at the grassroots level as well within the political system itself.

The weakening of the system of alliances which commits Western Europe to supporting the Anglo-American military axis, could indeed contribute to reversing  the tide. Washington would hesitate to wage a war on Iran without the support of France and Germany.

4. The holding of large antiwar rallies is important and essential. But in will not in itself reverse the tide of war unless it is accompanied by the development of a cohesive antiwar network.

What is required is a grass roots antiwar network, a mass movement at national and international levels, which challenges the legitimacy of the main military and political actors,
 as well as their corporate sponsors, and which would ultimately be instrumental in unseating those who rule in our name. The construction of this type of network will take time to develop.

Initially, it should focus on developing an antiwar stance within existing citizens’ organizations (e.g. trade unions, community organizations, professional regroupings, student federations, municipal councils, etc.).

Close down the weapons factories and the military bases.

Bring home the troops.

Members of the armed forces should disobey orders and refuse to participate in a criminal war.

According to the ex-chief of Turkish counter-terrorism, Erdoğan is protecting Daesh

| 19 SEPTEMBER 2016

In a long interview, the ex-chief of Turkish counter-terrorism, Ahmet Sait Yayla, talks about the support offered personally to Daesh by Président Recep Tayyip Erdoğan.

Ahmet Sait Yayla left his country when repression was brought to bear on anyone who was not prepared to contribute to the policies of the AKP (the Justice and Development Party).

According to him:
- Fidan, the head of the secret services (MIT) is in charge of the relations between the Turkish state, al-Qaïda and Daesh.
- The Turkish secret services have been furnishing military aid to the Islamic Emirate for years.
- The Turkish government transfers military equipment to Daesh via its humanitarian aid agency.
- Daesh soldiers, including their number 2, Fadhul Ahmed al-Hayali, receive free medical treatment in Turkey.
- The leader of Daesh in Turkey, Halis Bayancuk, is the son of the man who created the Turkish Hizbollah (a group of Kurdish Sunni agents provocateurs), and disposes of police protection on the orders of President Erdoğan.
- Daesh pursues its oil traffic with the help of Turkey and the Kurdish Regional Government of Iraq. Ahmet Sait Yayla has not told the whole story. It seems that this interview represents for him a way of threatening Erdoğan that he may say more, thus protecting his 19-year-old son, who is still held in Turkey.

“THE ART OF WAR”

PSYOPs: Operation Syria

While the emirate of Qatar is sponsoring?promotes an international tour? of an exhibition on the crimes attributed to the Syrian Arab Republic, Manlio Dinucci recalls —with supporting documents—, what we in fact know about this conflict

| ROME (ITALY) | 27 SEPTEMBER 2016

JPEG - 29.5 kb
Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani, Emir of Qatar since 2013. Qatar is an absolute monarchy. In theory, since 2003 the country has a constitution that provides for the election of a parliament. In practice, political parties are banned and the legislative elections always postponed.

Special units of the US Armed Forces and Secret Services are trained for “PYSOPs”: psychological operations that the Pentagon defines as «planned operations to use specific information to push emotional and motivational buttons and thus the conduct of the public, organizations and foreign governments». Why? «To bring about or consolidate conduct promoting pre-set objectives».

This is exactly what the colossal political and media PSYOP launched against Syria aims at.

An attempt has been made for five years to demolish the Syrian state, pulling it apart from within with armed terrorist groups and infiltrating it from abroad and causing more than 250,000 deaths. Now that the military operation is failing, a psychological operation is launched to make the government and any Syrian resisting aggression look like the aggressors.

The PSYOP kicks off with demonizing President Assad (a fait accompli with Milosevic and Gaddafi). Thus Assad is presented as a sadistic dictator who delights in bombing hospitals and exterminating children, with the help of his buddy Putin (depicted as a neo-tsar of the born-again Russian empire).

This is why, at the beginning of October, various “humanitarian” organizations took the initiative to organize a photographic exhibition at Rome, funded by Qatar’s absolute monarchy. This has already been exhibited at the UN and the Holocaust Museum in Washington through the joint initiative of the USA, Saudi Arabia and Turkey. This contains part of the 55,000 photos that a mysterious Syrian deserter (code name Caesar), says that he shot for the Damascus government to document the torturing and killing of prisoners, that is, its own crimes (regarding the reliability of the photos see the reports below).

At this point we need another exhibition, to exhibit all the documentation that PSYOP’s “intelligence” on Syria demolishes.

For example, the official document of the Pentagon’s Intelligence Agency, dated 12 August 2012 (de-classified on 18 May 2015 through the initiative of “Judicial Watch”): this reports that “Western countries, the Gulf States and Turkey support the opposition forces in Syria to establish a Salafist principality in Western Syria, something the powers that support the opposition desire with the aim of isolating the Syrian regime”.

This accounts for the meeting in Syria in May 2013 (documented by photo) between the US Senator John McCain (representing the White House), and Ibrahim al-Badri, the «caliph», at the head of Isis.

JPEG - 18.8 kb
In this picture (May 2013), we see Senator John McCain with the future caliph Ibrahim, head of ISIL (left). In an email, the senator’s office called our interpretation of this photograph as “absurd”, arguing the ISIL death threats against him. Yet one year later, the senator himself admitted to know ISIL leaders and to keep in touch with them.

This also explains why in 2013, President Obama secretly authorizes operation “Timber Sycamore”. This operation driven by the CIA and funded by Riyadh with millions of dollars, armed and trained “rebels” to infiltrate Syria (see The New York Times [1]).

Other documentation is found in Hillary Clinton’s e mail (de-classified under «case number F-2014-20439, Doc No. C05794498»). In December 2012, Hillary Clinton, as Secretary of State, writes that given the “strategic relationship” between Iran and Syria, «overthrowing Assad would constitute a huge advantage for Israel, and would also reduce Israel’s understandable fear of losing its nuclear monopoly».

To destroy the PSYOP’s “intelligence”, we also need to look back in history, to how the US has exploited the Kurds since the first Gulf War in 1991. At that time the aim was “to balkanize” Iraq, while today it is to disaggregate Syria. Today, the airbases set up by the US in the Kurdish area in Syria serve the strategy of “divide and rule”, a strategy that does not strive to liberate people but to subjugate them – including the Kurds.

US holds world hostage to political ‘reality show’ – Zakharova

© Georges Ourfalian
Washington’s foreign policy is driven by hysteria and resembles a “reality show” in which nobody cares about facts and resorts to old cliches and attacks on Russia to gain international and domestic political capital, said Russia’s foreign ministry spokeswoman.

The political process driven by Moscow and Washington aimed at establishing a long-lasting peace in Syria is hanging by a thread after a series of events this month led to severe mistrust between the leading nations involved in the peace process.

While US-Russian relations steadily deteriorated after the February 2014 coup in Ukraine, both states found the political will to cooperate on a number of important international issues ranging from Iran’s nuclear program to the Syrian armed conflict.

Months-long diplomatic efforts on behalf of Russia and the US almost produced results, when US-led coalition jets bombed Syrian government forces’ positions near the eastern city of Deir ez-Zor, killing 62 troops and “paving the way”, according to the Syrian Army General Command, for Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorists to storm the city before Russia intervened on Saturday, September 17.

Two days later on Monday, an attack on a UN aid convoy which killed more than 20 people near Aleppo saw the US-Russian brokered cease-fire crumble. The US held Syria and Russia responsible for the strike on the convoy delivering food relief to a rebel-held area. However, Moscow denied the accusations, and blamed Washington for not honoring agreements on Syria.

As the violence in Syria gathers new momentum, all efforts to cease hostilities have failed. At the UN Security Council, earlier this month, US envoy Samantha Power slated her Russian counterpart with regards to Moscow’s objectives in Syria, while Russia accused the US of not living up to its promises.

On Wednesday, top US and Russian diplomats exchanged mutual accusations as they shared their positions on peace prospects in the war-torn country. Washington is preparing to suspend the “bilateral engagement” on Syria with Moscow, including the establishment of the Joint Implementation Center, unless Russia immediately halts the attack on Aleppo and restores the ceasefire, John Kerry told Russia’s Sergey Lavrov. The Russian FM asked the US to live up to its obligation to separate US-backed opposition from terrorists.

When asked by a journalist from Russian tabloid Komsomolskaya Pravda what had happened in Syria that had erased the months-long diplomatic effort, Zakharova said that the context of current Russian-US relations should be examined through the prism of domestic US politics that impacts Washington’s behavior on the international stage.

The spokeswoman explained that US behavior in terms of its approach to Syria and Russia in general is influenced by two facts, the first of which is the inability of the outgoing US President Barack Obama to produce tangible results in terms of his stated foreign policy objectives which have not materialized after eight years in office.

“He [Obama] had received a credit [of trust] to perform a particular job as the head of the country, which declares itself an international leader,” Zakharova said. “[Obama] now needs to do everything possible to somehow influence something, and somehow inscribe himself in the history of international relations, as long as the international community has issued him with such a credit [of trust]. He needs to report but there is nothing to report. Almost everything that he stated on the foreign policy direction, did not play out.”

Now in order to secure his legacy in the international arena, the office of the Noble Peace Prize laureate is being “hysterical” and getting“impudent” in its foreign policies.

The second domestic process that impacts American diplomacy is the US presidential election race where both candidates, Democrat Hilary Clinton and Republican Donald Trump, are manipulating foreign issues to secure their victory, especially when it comes to US relations with Moscow.

“Unfortunately, this is the trouble of the modern world, where the largest and most powerful empire uses international relations and international platforms for addressing internal issues, political processes and ambitions. It is our misfortune. We are all hostages to it,” Zakharova said.

Not diplomacy but “shaping public opinion” is what drives American behavior on international platforms such as the United Nations, Zakharova said, calling such an approach an “online reality show” demonstrated to audiences to influence their opinion of US politicians. Zhakharova called Power’s attack on Churkin following the American strike on Syrian army positions a “part of the show.”

The show is there to “distract attention” America’s inability to fulfill its obligations, Zakharova said. “You need to explain to the world why the Syrian settlement is not moving on, why the year-long efforts are now negated. Who’s to blame? Russia.”

Claiming that no one is buying this “wag the dog” approach, Zhakharova stressed that battling terrorism calls for an“adequate action,” namely combining efforts with Russia on Syria.

“Now it has come to this critical moment – either they fulfill their obligations, or the [peace] process can really slow down seriously,” the diplomat stressed, reiterating Lavrov’s comments to Kerry earlier in the day.

The US and its allies are using “cliches”, demanding that Russia must explain its actions Syria and prove the “seriousness” of its commitment to peace.

“But who are they that we have to prove something to them?” the diplomat wondered. “It is they who have to prove [their commitment], after destroying Iraq, Libya, walking all over the Middle East with their boots, breaking all conceivable laws of existence in the region.”

“It is they who have to prove the sincerity of their intentions with regard to Syria …that they see this state as a state, not some colony or some kind of black hole,” she said.

Obama: Congress’ veto override of 9/11 bill ‘a mistake’

US president says Senate’s vote to override his veto of legislation would “set a dangerous precedent”.

US President Barack Obama has called the Senate’s vote to override his veto on a bill that allows families of the victims of the September 11, 2001, attacks to sue Saudi Arabia’s government a mistake.

Calling it a “political vote”, Obama said on Wednesday that the bill would set “a dangerous precedent” that could put US troops and interests at risk.

“If we eliminate this notion of sovereign immunity, then our men and women in uniform around the world could potentially start seeing ourselves subject to reciprocal loss,” Obama said during a town hall meeting-style interview on CNN, referring to potential lawsuits.

Earlier on Wednesday, the US Congress passed into law the controversial bill that allows family members of 9/11 victims to sue Saudi Arabia for its alleged backing of the attackers.

Both the Senate and House voted overwhelmingly on Wednesday in favour of the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act, or JASTA.

“The White House and the executive branch [are] far more interested in diplomatic considerations,” said Senator Chuck Schumer, a sponsor of the bill. “We’re more interested in the families and in justice.”

The vote was a blow to Obama and to Saudi Arabia – one of the US’ oldest allies in the Arab world.

Obama, who vetoed the measure last week, said in a letter to Senate leaders on Tuesday that other countries could use JASTA to justify similar immunity exceptions to target US policies and activities that they oppose.

“If any of these litigants were to win judgments – based on foreign domestic laws as applied by foreign courts – they would begin to look to the assets of the US government held abroad to satisfy those judgments, with potentially serious financial consequences for the United States,” Obama said at the time.

Obama’s veto was overturned in Wednesday’s congressional vote – the first override of his presidency.

Fifteen of the 19 men who carried out the 2001 attacks were Saudi nationals. Families of the victims spent years lobbying lawmakers for the right to sue the kingdom in US courts for any role elements of Saudi Arabia’s government may have played.

Saudi Arabia has long denied any involvement in the attacks that killed nearly 3,000 people. Riyadh strongly objected to the bill.

Al Jazeera requested comment from the Saudi embassy in Washington but did not receive a response by the time of publication.

Speaking after the Senate vote, White House spokesman Josh Earnest called the move “the single most embarrassing thing the United States Senate has done possibly since 1983” and “an abdication of their basic responsibilities as elected representatives of the American people”.

Stephen Kinzer, a senior fellow at the Watson Institute for International and Public Affairs at Brown University, said the eight-decade-long US-Saudi relationship was “entering into a new phase”.

Other analysts warned that Saudi Arabia could, in response to the law, pull billions of dollars from the US economy and persuade close allies in the Gulf Cooperation Council to scale back counterterrorism cooperation, investment, and US access to important regional military bases.

“This should be clear to America and to the rest of the world: When one GCC state is targeted unfairly, the others stand around it,” said Abdulkhaleq Abdullah, an Emirati Gulf specialist and professor of political science at United Arab Emirates University.

“All the states will stand by Saudi Arabia in every way possible.”

Chas Freeman, former US assistant secretary of defence and ambassador to Saudi Arabia during Operation Desert Storm, said the Saudis could respond to the law in ways that risk US strategic interests, such as permissive rules for overflight between Europe and Asia, and the Qatari airbase from which US military operations in Afghanistan, Iraq, and Syria are directed and supported.

“The souring of relations and curtailing of official contacts that this legislation would inevitably produce could also jeopardise Saudi cooperation against anti-American terrorism,” he said.

Saudi Foreign Minister Adel al-Jubeir told reporters in June that the US had the most to lose if JASTA was enacted.

Joseph Gagnon, a senior fellow at the Peterson Institute for International Economics, said estimates put the figure of official Saudi assets in the US at between $500bn and $1 trillion, when considering potential foreign bank deposits and offshore accounts.

Solid facts? 5 flaws that raise doubt over int’l MH17 criminal probe

An international inquiry has found that MH17 was taken down from within rebel-held territories by a BUK system transported from Russia. However, some uncertainty over it lingers – investigators withheld key evidence citing security concerns.

During the presentation of its findings, the Joint Investigation Team (JIT) stated that it would not disclose all the information and evidence sources it used in its inquiry.

“We cannot and do not want to tell you everything because that can jeopardize the investigation and play into the hands of the perpetrators,” the body said.

Unnamed eyewitnesses

According to the JIT the BUK was brought into Ukraine from Russia by a low-loader and then taken to the alleged launch site near Snezhnoye. The cornerstones of this conclusion are open-source materials and “witness statements” gathered by investigators. However no people who provided the statements were named, with the JIT citing security reasons.

The inquiry also mentioned eyewitnesses who allegedly saw the smoke trail following the launch of the BUK near Snezhnoye. The Dutch-led team has not released any video accounts from these people to back up their claims.

 

Anonymous phone call interceptions

Apart from using eyewitnesses, the international team analyzed “intercepted telephone conversations”. The JIT said it examined “approximately 150,000” intercepted telephone calls, but during its presentation, the international team released the transcripts and audio recordings of only a handful of them. One of the phone calls in particular includes an alleged discussion about the need for a missile system and a confirmation that rebel forces had procured one.

Although the JIT provided the date for the calls it is not clear as to who exactly was involved in the conversation and who handed over the respective data. While the JIT claimed it has independently evaluated their authenticity, Russia, for instance was not included in the process.

Computer simulation vs. video evidence

While stressing that the JIT was able to track “much of the route” of the BUK missile system from Russia, investigators provided only few videos and images of the system, allegedly in Ukraine.

The main evidence on the path of the low-loader with the Buk was hence presented not with real images, but merely a computer reconstruction. It showed the alleged route of the missile system through communities in eastern Ukraine right to the alleged launch site.

The investigators also cited the importance of anonymity because of potential security issues for the people who had provided them with materials.

Radar data and satellite images

Pinpointing the exact location of the BUK missile launch was one of the key tasks for the Dutch-led team. In its report investigators cited data received from the US which purported to show that MH17 was downed by a BUK missile “launched from a site about six kilometers south of the village of Snizhne [Snezhnoye].” The images have not been attached to the report.

On September 26 Russia challenged JIT claims releasing raw data from a radar located in Russia, which registered no objects approaching MH17 from the territories held by rebels. Moscow also called on Ukraine to release its radar data, which the Russian Defense Ministry continues to point out, has still not been made public.

Missile type and flight trajectory

On Wednesday the international team reiterated that it could not specify the exact type of missile used to down the Malaysian Boeing, saying it was a 9M38-series rocket.

Yet Russian company Almaz-Antey, said it could clearly identify the missile being of type 9M38, which is already decommissioned in Russi, after carrying out experiments last year. That was not reflected in the latest JIT report.

Almaz-Antey further questioned the JIT report since it had handed over “top-secret” data on BUK missile characteristics to the investigators earlier. Yet the international team opted to study a “similar” US missile to model the impact, which according to Almaz-Antey massively differs from the Russian BUK including a different potential flight path.

‘Zero tolerance’: Belgian migration minister slammed for taking ‘racist’ ad as compliment

© Roberto Salvador
The Belgian minister for migration and asylum, Theo Francken, has been slammed for reposting a satirical advertisement featuring himself arresting an undocumented migrant in, let’s just say, quite an unconventional way.

The caricature advertisement showed the minister’s face pasted over the body of a policeman who was swooping in on a chopper to arrest a migrant by putting a suction cup on a black man’s head. He is then brought into the helicopter afterwards. The video is concluded by a ‘Zero Tolerance’ tagline, apparently referring to diet Coke.

“Look what I found, zero tolerance, it’s amusing,” Francken posted, as quoted by Belgian media outlet RTBF.

The message, perhaps obviously, triggered online outrage of epic proportions, with local politicians speaking out against the ad as well as other Belgian residents.

“You think this is funny? You make us vomit, Mr. Francken,” Ahmed Laaouej, a member of parliament who is of Moroccan descent and represents the Belgian Socialist Party, posted on Twitter.

Other users also reposted screenshots of the gif, calling the tweet ‘racist’ and commenting “This says a lot!”

Following the backlash, Francken first defended his post with a statement, “So every video in which a non-white person is arrested is racist? Political correctness has no borders.”

However, soon the post was deleted from his Facebook account.

The creator of the .gif advertisement, graphic designer Roberto Salvador, told Foreign Policy that he meant the ad to be a satire, and was genuinely surprised after discovering that the minister regarded it as more of a compliment.

Salvador added that the inspiration for his ad became a news article published on Monday in Belgian weekly Le Vif about Francken having deployed 100 police officers, dozens of vehicles, and a chopper, to arrest 12 undocumented African migrants in the Molenbeek district of Brussels.

“I wanted to express that with a caricature in the form of a GIF. The original message took on a different significance. The media quickly called it a ‘racist video,’ but it is purely contextual,” Salvador emphasized.

Following the initial repost by the minister, he also tweeted, “Theo Francken has shared my gif, I’m dying.”

Francken is widely known as a Flemish nationalist, and has been lining up some hardline measures for migrants. Last week, he suggested that the country’s migration law should be tightened, adding that he plans to extend detention for undocumented migrants. In August, he backed the burqini ban.

Francken is by no means the only Belgian official with such hardline views: last year Interior Minister Jan Jambon was slammed for saying refugees should wear special badges so police could identify them more easily.
