Ersnst Zündel on Leuchter report regarding Auschwitz investigation

Ernst Zündel’s 2015 Interview at First International Identitarian Congress in Mexico

This appears to be Ernst’s last interview, conducted approximately 2 years before his 2017 death. He was still sharp as a tack.


Germany: Since 1945 a Vassal State to Israel

An 87-year-old lady of high intelligence and spotless reputation, Frau Ursula Haverbeck of Vlotho, Germany, has recently been sentenced to 10 months in prison for speaking out against incessant German-bashing. What did she say? Demanding proof about alleged atrocities in Auschwitz,  as so repeatedly and vociferously claimed. She says no such proof can be found.Sheer heresy!

Specifically, Ms. Haverbeck insists that Auschwitz was a work camp, not a death camp. That’s good news – isn’t it? She agreed that there were casualties – as there will be in any war – but no deaths due to gassings. There never was a Führer plan to kill the Jews of Europe in government-sponsored, industrial-type fashion.

She said all this, and more, on an hour-long national television show called Panorama, similar to America’s Sixty Minutes.

imgres-2Frau Haverbeck (right) is certainly no skinhead. She comes across as poised, articulate, and very well-informed. For her heretical assertions, she is expected to be incarcerated for almost an entire year. For her principled stand on behalf of historical truth, she earned herself the leftist slur “Nazi-Oma,” repeated with palpable relish on just about every European network and print syndication.

Off with her head!

As Ian Greenlaugh, a VT colleague of mine, noted this morning:

What sort of nation throws 87-year-old women into jail for speaking the truth? Certainly not one that can consider itself to be a functioning free and fair democracy.

A “free and fair democracy?” Well, that’s exactly what Germany is not . We’re talking faux “democracy.”  The Bundesrepublik, as a truncated post-war Germany has been rechristened, is still a vassal state, a fossil of a war lost by the German military more than seven decades ago, as we are never allowed to forget.

Here’s what’s not widely understood. Germany is an Allied -occupied colony and has been for more than 70+ years, despite a threadbare democratic façade. A conqueror’s ceasefire was declared in 1945 when the military arm of the Third Reich surrendered.  A pro forma ceasefire came into effect on the 8th of May 1945 as part of the military alliance called NATO. But there was never a peace treaty. Ever.

A genuine peace treaty was never allowed to be born.

It is my firm contention that World War II didn’t end.  In Germany, there is a bitter saying that the Bundesrepublik has been installed “… to keep the Americans in, the Russians out, and the Germans down.” That folkish wisdom fits the situation.

In 1998 in an interview taped five years before Ernst Zundel was politically kidnapped in broad daylight on American soil, he explained to an Israeli reporter exactly what this means:

Germany’s political enemies currently in charge of that chunk of real estate, called “Germany” in the vernacular, have succeeded in inducing guilt complexes into an entire unsuspecting population leading to the classic symptoms of the massive national psychosis that we can see today. A jokester once observed that there are more televisions in Germany than there are bathtubs, which means that brains gets scrubbed more often and more thoroughly than backsides.

After seventy+ years after the Third Reich surrendered, Germany is still an occupied country, a fact kept from the German people, “re-educated” to the hilt. Your average German has not the faintest clue.

“Induced insanity”, as Dr. Rigolf Hennig, a noted German psychiatrist, has stated, “has little to do with intelligence but a great deal to do with suspension of logical thought brought about by pseudo-religious indoctrination.”

Let me try to explain that to you. As the Catholic Church relies on Infallibility, politically beholden  judges in the German courts rely on “Manifest Obviousness” or Offenkundigkeit – roughly akin to the Anglo-Saxon concept of “Judicial Notice” – meaning “… what exists need not be proven.” Tuesday follows Monday. The sun sets in the West. The moon shines bright at night. Moscow is the capital of Russia. Guilt on the German character is fixed for all eternity. They gassed six million Jews.

Disbarred attorney Horst Mahler, who was sentenced to more than 10 years for his politically incorrect statements

What do you call a country in the very heart of Europe that does not have its own elected government? A USA protectorate? An Israeli colony? A trial run for the New World Order? Twistspeak in the Orwellian mode?

Here is the seamy tale. Legally, the Bundesrepublik is not the legitimate successor to the Reich. Even Germany’s own highest Constitutional Court affirmed it. It cannot be the legitimate successor because, under international law, the “Reich” is still the legitimate state and two states cannot legally govern the same geographic area at the same time.  Just as Russia didn’t disappear after the Soviet regime collapsed, the German Reich continues to exist, regardless of politically motivated claims to the contrary.

Offenkundigkeit exists to enforce political dogma and punish heresy. It means that if you are unlucky enough to end up with a legitimate question – for instance, Did Six Million Really Die? – before a judge who toes the expected political line, the fix is in for you before the trial even begins. A defense on the merits of your case is strictly precluded by law. You are not allowed to argue what you suspect to be true, or what you know to be true, or what you can prove to be true. Offenkundigkeit stands in the courtroom like the golem that it is – and you better stand at attention!

You are forbidden by law to bolster your assertion or even your opinion with evidence such as forensic facts – and if an attorney is foolish enough to insist, he or she is “guilty” of the same “crime” as his or her defendant – “guilty by mere association and intent.

Think of it this way: A man of impeccable repute is falsely accused of being a thief. Since most defendants are unschooled on details of the law, he may assume that he must prove his innocence. Not so! According to law and convention, the state must prove he stole.

He claims he didn’t steal. He argues there’s no evidence he stole. He gets himself a lawyer. The lawyer argues that the accusation can’t be true – where is the evidence? The judge replies: “It’s obvious. Offenkundig. Are you a thief yourself? Shut up – or else, I’ll sentence you for stealing.”

Offenkundigkeit has, thus, become the Holy Cow of German jurisprudence regarding so-called “war crimes” – and, lately, hate speech crimes. It gives beholden judges court jester license.

How can a defense attorney then offer a solid rebuttal, if the law not only forbids it but endangers the attorney himself? The short answer is that he can’t. The long answer is written on the wind.

The German “war crimes” trials and now their modern version, “hate crimes” trials, are a farce. They are the bull horns of a military occupation that likes to dress itself in democratic finery but is, in fact, an autocratic instrument enforcing a false history. The simple truth is that the German Reich was not obliterated when the German Wehrmacht surrendered. It was kept feeble on purpose by the victorious Allies so it could be ruled by a malicious cabal that took over as a provisional government whose function  to this day is to ensure endless “reparation” for a “crime” forensic science disproved decades ago!

The Bundesrepublik – it’s acronym is BRD – was meant to be a temporary measure, but you know what happens when unwelcome guests invade your house, rob you of your property title, dig in their heels and stay put. If they have the power that you no longer have, you’re stuck with unwelcome intruders that write the rules for you!

The Bundesrepublik was never meant to last. It was put in its place because there was a vacuu
m – until such time as the ill-fated Germans, held to be pathologically addicted to authoritarian rule of grandiose design, were sufficiently “matured politically” to vote themselves a government more suitable to Allied tastes. This, sadly, never happened. From the Allies’ point of view, the occupation was a noble interim – on paper. Until desirable maturity in the German populace had taken root, the powers-that-be would rule the besieged, bloodied, starving, decimated Germans for their own good in their own ruins, and “re-educate” them thoroughly for as long as it took until they came to their senses.

Zundel Lead Attorney Sylvia Stolz was bodily carried out of the courtroom for insisting that her client had the right to submit exculpatory evidence. Subsequently, Stolz was sentenced to more than three years in prison, two-thirds of which she served.

Ceasefire, yes – but no peace treaty.

That ceasefire exists to this day. That means any minute new guns could start firing again!

The pity is that the Germans were never told of this provisional arrangement that would have given them their freedom as soon as they showed proper remorse and paid enough restitution for crimes alleged to have happened. The facts of the matter were quietly swept under the rug.

Thus was created a bottomless pit. A thoroughly “re-educated” German can never show enough remorse. Not as long as there is still a nickel to be filched or a submarine to be delivered as a gesture of “good will” to the State of Israel.

Three post-war generations came and went. The usurpers of Germany’s sovereignty stayed on because they liked their cozy nests. They made the Germans pay for their own occupation through an arrangement called Stationierungskosten paid out of the BRD treasury, defended by the Allies’ guilt cudgel called Offenkundigkeit. Nobody knew what to ask – until Ernst Zundel’s Mannheim trial brought that red herring to the fore.

What the Holocaust establishment will never say about Anne Frank

While the story of Anne Frank is tragedy, the basic facts of the Frank family history fly in the face of the belief that Auschwitz was an “extermination factory.”

…by Jonas E. Alexis and David Merlin

 

David Merlin has a Bachelor of Arts degree in history and economics from the University of California, Berkeley. He also has a Juris Doctor. He is currently writing a book on the “Irving vs. Lipstadt” trial. He is a frequent contributor to the Committee for Open Debate on the Holocaust, CODOH.com.

Jonas E. Alexis: Anne Frank is arguably one of the most difficult personalities of World War II. She has been revered by political leaders of all stripes, including like Nelson Mandela. When the Ann Frank Exhibition was opened in 1994, Mandela, a Communist and Marxist/Leninist throughout his political career and a product of Jewish messianic and subversive movements, declared then that

The Anne Frank Exhibition explores the past in order to heal, to reconcile and to build the future. I think we will all agree that it is not the most pleasant thing to revive bitter memories, to invoke the pain and suffering of the past.

“But, like the people of the Netherlands and others in Europe who experienced the harsh realities of Nazism and fascism, like the people in the developing world who lived under the brutality of colonialism, we, in South Africa know too well that we cannot move forward with confidence if we ignore the past.”

How ironic that the man who uttered those words did not even think that Leninism was worse than Nazism or Fascism. Mandela was even trained by the Israeli Mossad!

In any event, there is now an Anne Frank Exhibition in South Africa, but there is not a single exhibition for millions upon millions of innocent people who suffered under Lenin and Stalin—not even in America, the land of “democracy” and “freedom.”

Beyoncé and Jay Z have even all the way to Amsterdam to visit the Anne Frank House, but they never asked the most damning question ever: whatever happened to other people who suffered under the Bolshevik Regime? Do they deserve our sympathy?

Are these people being fair? Are we really being careful with the historical account? One cogent observer by the name of Marc C. Digiuseppe has recently sent me his great assessment on the some of the problems facing the political and historical world which states in part:

“The German people were maligned and abused by the Western Oligarchs in World War I. The Oligarchs cleverly navigated a diplomacy that played upon Germanic Traditions—abstract notions of pride and honor—a rule of the clan that had endured for thousands of years…

“This entire process was then repeated upon the German people at the end of World War II.”

Absolutely true. The questions before us are simply these: When will the Holocaust establishment be fair to the German people, particularly those who suffered under the Red Army? When will they look at the death and evil on both sides of the historical equation? More importantly, what aren’t they telling us about Anne Frank?

Well, we’ll let Merlin answer that question for us.

Now, some readers will probably say that we are trying to deconstruct history here. Not at all. We should all sympathize for those who have suffered under violent regimes and for those who have absolutely and positively nothing to do with revolutionary movements.

In fact, we should all be able to separate good, bad, and indifferent people. But it is not fair to sympathize for one particular group while ignoring the suffering of others. And the Holocaust establishment has certainly tampered with the Anne Frank account. Now let us allow Merlin to talk about this issue.

David Merlin: There is a rather pretentious writer for the New York Times named Ed Rothstein. Mr. Rothstein specializes in pious critiquing of Holocaust tales and museums. He wrote an article about the Anne Frank extravaganza exhibit put on at the Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles. The article is entitled “Playing Cat and Mouse With Searing History.”[1]

Rothstein feels that people are drawing the wrong “lesson” from the exhibit. The exhibit is not horrible enough and “horrific circumstances are distilled into effervescent platitudes!” In fact, Mr. Rothstein has totally missed the history lesson.  Maybe Mr. Rothstein can be excused since the backstory history of the Frank family is never mentioned by Holocaust Believers.

While the story of Anne Frank is tragedy, the basic facts of the Frank family history fly in the face of the belief that Auschwitz was an “extermination factory.” To Quote Bradley Smith’s Blog,

“Official history is that non-working Jewish people arriving at Auschwitz were all ‘gassed.’ But of the eight sent to Auschwitz on September 3, 1944 from the Annex, not one of them was killed in a gas chamber. Instead, five of the eight were transported back to Germany-Austria in November 1944.”

Otto Frank

The details of the eight individuals from the Annex are:

  1. Anne Frank– sent to Auschwitz, then transported to Belsen where she died of typhus (in Belsen not Auschwitz).
  2. Otto Frank– left behind in Auschwitz with those in the sick barracks. Survived the War.
  3. Edith Frank-Holländer–left behind in Auschwitz as the Germans retreated.
  4. Margot Frank (Anne’s older sister) died of typhus in Belsen (not Auschwitz).
  5. Fritz Pfeffer, sent to Auschwitz then transported to Neuengamme concentration camp where he died on 20 December 1944. His cause of death is listed in the camp records as “enterocolitis.”
  6. Auguste van Pels born Auguste Röttgen (Hermann’s wife), whose date of death is unknown. Witnesses testified that she was with the Frank sisters during part of their time in Bergen-Belsen. According to German records, van Pels was sent to Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany with a group of eight women on November 26, 1944. Hannah Goslar’s testimony was that she spoke to van Pels through the barbed wire fence “in late January or early February”. Auguste was transferred on February 6, 1945 to Raguhn (Buchenwald in Germany), then to the Czechoslovakia camp Theresienstadt ghetto on April 9, 1945.
  7. Peter van Pels died in Mauthausen (not Auschwitz).
  8. Hermann van Pels died in Auschwitz. It is often claimed that he was “gassed.” However, according to eyewitness testimony, this did not happen on the day of his arrival there. Sal de Liema, an inmate at Auschwitz who knew both Otto Frank and Hermann van Pels, said that after two or three days in the camp, van Pels mentally “gave up.” He later injured his thumb on a work detail, and requested to be sent to the sick barracks. There is no evidence whatever for the assertion that Hermann van Pels was gassed.

The pattern is the same with other groups closely associated with Anne Frank who were also sent to Auschwitz from Holland.

  1. Eva Geiringer — born May 11, 1929. Sent to Auschwitz May 1944 Step-sister of Anne Frank. Survived the War. Married Zvi Schloss, also refugee from Nazi Germany.   She is a co-founder of the Anne Frank Trust UK. Her experiences story was made into the play And Then They Came for Me – Remembering the World of Anne Frank.
  2. “Fritzy” Geiringer, mother of Eva, Married Otto Frank. Survived the War.
  3. Heinz Geiringer, brother. Survived Auschwitz but died on a forced march out of the camp.
  4. “Pappy” Geiringer. Survived Auschwitz but died on a forced march out of the camp.

The Geiringers were immigrants from Austria; They too ignored a call up for labor service received July 6, 1942 and went into hiding. They were found out on May 11, 1944, detained and were sent to Auschwitz that month.

  1. Janny Brandes-Brilleslijper. Was arrested for forgery. Was in the Westerbork, Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen concentration camps. Traveled to Auschwitz on the same train as the Frank family and to Belsen with Anne and Anne’s older sister Margot. Survived the War.
  2. Lientje, sister of Janny. Was in the Westerbork, Auschwitz and Bergen-Belsen concentration camps with Janny. Survived the War.”

Not one of the group of 14 was gassed or executed.

There is more: Anne, Margo, Janny, and Lientje were put on trains and transported back across Poland into Germany. It is pretty obvious that they were not moved around due to their value as workers.

How do Believers in an alleged policy to “Exterminate all Jews” explain this?  Rothstein dances around the issue, playing up the tragedy and avoiding the actual history.

“Otto Frank, Anne’s father and the sole survivor of the “secret annex”

Rothstein also skims over the transportation problem with lurid rhetoric, “where the Germans had shipped her from Auschwitz along with other condemned souls in the waning months of the war.”

The point is exactly that the people transported out of Auschwitz were NOT condemned but saved.  Their later tragic deaths by disease, cold, etc. may have been negligence (or not) but to bray out that they were “condemned souls” is absurd and dishonest.

Even Rothstein’s “waning months of the War” claim is a conflation. Anne, et al were transported out in November 1944.

The display that Rothstein finds most meaningful in the Exhibit is a “symbolic” wall of children’s clothes: Typical of a Holocaust Believer to worship symbolism and ignore the Truth.

The obvious point is that (whatever German policy was earlier) by September 1944 the policy was not to “exterminate all Jews.”

The Shady Mr. Frank

The promoters of the Anne Frank story leave out unpleasant information about Otto Frank.

The official story was that Otto Frank and his family were detained because they were Jewish. However a recent book by Carol Ann Lee, The Hidden Life of Otto Frank (Penguin Books, 2003), brings to light never before documented information about Otto Frank.

The operative fact was that Otto Frank was always in need of money.  With one broken engagement already behind him, in 1925 Frank married Edith Hollander, a women with a substantial dowry and heiress to a scrap-metal and industrial-supply business.

It was, he later admitted, ‘a business arrangement’, though not even his well-to-do wife could help when, in the early Thirties, the family banking business plunged once again into the red.[2]

Getting out of Germany

Otto Frank and his family emigrated from Germany to Holland in 1933, evidently under a cloud of some illegal business transactions. It is interesting to note that the various Anne Frank Websites blame the emigration on anti-Semitic policies of the National Socialists.

However, Hitler did not gain power until after the passage of the Enabling Act on March 24, 1933 and the Nuremberg laws were not passed until September 1935.  By then Otto Frank had been in Holland for over two years.[3]

Frank had established his franchise for the Amsterdam branch of Opekta pectin company by September 1933, evidently after months of planning. Interestingly, Frank had previously managed  managed a large rival firm  named Pomosin, which also traded pectin to factories from the Dutch town of Utrecht.

All this clearly shows that failed business dealings had already prompted Otto Frank to look for a creditor free life in Holland.

 Business with the Germans

Holland did not give the Franks Dutch citizenship. When the Germans occupied Holland in 1940 Frank was happy to do business with the Occupying German Army (the pectin his firm produced was essential for the preservation of the German army’s rations.) In her book, Lee writes…”Otto Frank made a pact with the devil […]”

Otto manufactured and wholesaled pectin and other products to the German army.

“Pectin was a preservative that could be put to many uses, depending upon the type of pectin it was. All pectin was useful for food production, but certain kinds could be applied as a balm for wounds and as a thickener for raising blood volume in blood transfusions.

Other types of pectin were used in the steel industry as a hardener and in the oil industry as an emulsifier. Therefore, it is possible that the Wehrmacht used the pectin they bought from Otto Frank’s company for the war industry.”

Carol Ann Lee details evidence that after the War Otto paid hush money to people to keep his business dealings with the Nazis secret.

Otto Frank’s illegal activities

Frank illegally re-registered his business naming the husband of a secretary, Jan Gies, owner and changing the business name to Gies & Co. but Frank continued to act as an illegal “sleeping partner.”

Two years later, in July 1942, Margot Frank receives a call-up to report for a German work camp. Otto Frank went into hiding.

There is also the matter of the two Opekta employees, Martin Brouwer and Pieter Daatzelaa, who were arrested in March 1944 for dealing in counterfeit ration cards. They worked in the same building as the Annex.

Rather than mention what appears to be a sizable black market food and fake ration card ring centered at the Gies & Co building,  protectors of the “Anne Frank Brand name” make the dramatic claim that the family “had been betrayed”but, when Otto Frank was discovered in hiding, he and his family were illegal aliens in Holland with a string of legal violations by Otto Frank, including strong connections with a counterfeit ration card operation.

The family was held for almost a month at Westerbork Detention Center while all this was sorted out. When the Frank family’s legal status was determined they were all transported to Auschwitz. None of the women were registered into the camp and none seemed to work.

All of the family survived the alleged “Extermination Factory.” As mentioned above, Anne and her older sister were transported back to Germany, where Anne Frank died of typhus right at the end of the War.

The “official” Anne Frank website ignores all these inconvenient facts about Otto Frank and the Frank Family’s visit to Auschwitz.

Dutch ration cards from Amsterdam’s Dutch Resistance Museum

The Diary and the Anne Frank Brand Name

The pages that constitute the “Diary” were actually various loose sheets of paper allegedly left by the police strewn on the floor of the Annex.

Whatever else one can say about the “Diary,” it has been a huge goldmine and everyone connected with young Anne Frank has exploited her story, usually by establishing a “Foundation”  such as Eva Geiringer’s Anne Frank Trust UK.More than 30 million book copies have been sold along with movie rights, plays, and exhibits like the pay-to-view show at the Los Angeles Wiesenthal Center   ($15.50 to enter. Not included with general admission. Advanced reservations are recommended.)

In his will, Otto Frank bequeathed the original manuscripts to the Netherlands Institute for War Documentation. The copyright however belongs to the Anne Frank Fonds, a Switzerland-based foundation.

Over the years, there have been numerous legal brawls over ownership of the publishing rights.

For example,  Cornelis Suijk—a former director of the Anne Frank Foundation and president of the U.S. Center for Holocaust Education Foundation—announced in 1999 that he was in the possession of five pages that had been removed by Otto Frank from the diary prior to publication; Suijk claimed that Otto Frank gave these pages to him shortly before his death in 1980. It cost US$300,000 to Suijk’s Foundation to get the pages back to the The Netherlands Institute for War Documentation.

Also see: “a legacy feud is simmering between the owners of Frank’s writings — the Switzerland-based Anne Frank Fonds — and stewards of the “Secret Annex” museum visited by more than one-million people each year, the Anne Frank House.[4]

The disputes among the various trusts and foundations aside, they all unite in preserving the value of the Anne Frank Brand name.  The Netherlands State Institute for War Documentation paid for a report that claimed that the various papers were “authentic.”

But then, after years of claiming that the Diaries were the sole work of  Anne, The Anne Frank Fund, based in Basel, Switzerland, has claims that it holds exclusive copyright because Otto Frank was a co-author!

It all leads one to suspect that the various Anne Frank trusts, foundations, and museums are not shooting straight with the facts.

Conclusion

Obviously the detention and death by disease of Anne Frank is a tragedy but a review the facts puts a slightly different spin on the story than the myth making exploitation of the tragedy by the folks at Anne Frank House, the Anne Frank Fonds, and the Simon Wiesenthal Museum.

Lerner Spectre, wife of Stockholm´s Supreme Rabbi: “Jews must lead the world”!

 When Jesuit, Jew and Rothschild agent Edward Mandel House on behalf of Pres. Woodrow Wilson  wrote the Peace Treaty of Versailles without any German participation – and so that WW2 was inevitable –  he used special literature: Some time ago, Stan Monteith, a pioneer NWO researcher and broadcaster, found a typewritten copy of the “Protocols of the Elders of Zion” in the papers of Col. Edward Mandel House at Yale University. Colonel House, at the peak of his powers, was the central figure at the Peace Conference.

The Protocols have been and are still being postulated by Jews to be a fraud – but this has never been proved in court. And the systematic fulfilment of them can only be explained by them being a fact.
Researcher and Rabbi Marvin Antelman writes in his Book “To Eliminate the Opiate” vol 1, p. xviii that the authors were the Jewish Schiffs Warburgs, Morgan, Rothschild, Rockefeller. 

Two remarkable statements are made:
a. East European Zionist Jews immigrated to America, established Hollywood (which they still own) and launched concept of “the American Dream” (about insatiable greed, greatness and immorality), i.e. they shaped the minds of the Americans (and thus of much of the world) the way the Zionists wanted them to be.
b. The question is not what the Germans did to the Jews, but what the Jews did to the Germans – see my post on the Unknown Adolf Hitler and  here.  Hitler was a Jew  – possibly a Rothschild – although Rabbi Antelman claims  Hitler was the deliberate ritual creation of a  ritual participated in by his   Jewish  and here mother, Klara Pölzl, and a  Sabbatean Frankist. So, there was any reason for this antisemite to conceal his family.  He is even said in 1912-13 to have had a Tavistock-brainwashing and being deconstructed to become  a British agent.  The Rothschild programmers work out of  Tavistock.

Comment
The Protocols are the 2. Communist Rothschild Manifesto – Jewish world Hegemony, the NWOAgenda 21, Techhnocracy.  Karl Marx wrote the first of the kind by order and payment of his cousin, Nathan Rothschild of the London City.
It is Jewish Luciferianism with the one purpose to let the Pharisees have their final victory over Jesus Christ whom they know they could not defeat at Golgatha. They hate him, because he is their master´s absolute opponent in a world they see as belonging to Lucifer – not to his brother (see Book of Job) Jesus Christ, who tries to steal some of the souls which inescapably belonged to Lucifer and his stooges  – until Christ sowed his offer of salvation from the NWO-Limbo  which is as old and evil as Mankind.

A Who’s-Who List of Anti-White Jewish ‘Pseudo-Intellectual’ Quackery

By Thomas Müller

If I didn’t know any better, I’d think this was an organized conspiracy. Unlike “privileged whites,” Jewish pseudo-intellectuals are constantly handed the megaphone. The following is just a representative list. There are many more. In fact, I defy any reader to provide as examples two Judaics, who have a platform or are in academia, who oppose the dissemination of this nasty screed. #(((EverySingleTime))) #Getarealjob.

Hat tip to “Fellow White Person” @FellowWhites for creating this list in a satire format that will hopefully remain below the radar of Twitter’s algos and censors.

TNN Advisory: Absolutely do not harass or even communicate with these individuals. It’s exactly what they want, and it will backfire. Don’t be juvenile like Daily Stormer. Ignore them, and instead use your energies to spread awareness far and wide among the sleeping sheeple.

‘The US has lost the war in Syria and is now in bed with terrorists!’ : The Saker

SPUTNIK  INTERVIEWS  THE  SAKER

September 28, 2017. Here is the original and full transcript of my recent interview with Sputnik (by email). Due to the decision by the Sputnik editors to remove parts of my replies which I consider to be essential, I have taken the painful decision not to grant any further interviews to Sputnik. — The Saker

“ALL THE US WANTS IN WAR, WAR, AND MORE WAR!”

“It is hard to talk with people who confuse Austria and Australia”. — Vladimir Putin
(See Putin has openly mocked the United States)

Sputnik: Could you comment on the US recent actions in Deir ez-Zor? What could have been behind the alleged US provocations in the region?

The Saker: The US has lost the war in Syria. The good and the bad terrorists are in full retreat, Assad is firmly in power and nobody believes anymore that he can be removed. The Israelis are in a total panic mode. The Saudis are enraged. And the Russian peace initiative is backed by all the actors who truly matter: the Syrians themselves, of course, but also Iran and Turkey.  Even Hezbollah has declared victory. This is a massive loss of face for the Empire and a humiliation for the USA.

As a result, the Americans are falling back to their plan B – that is, to partition Syria, and keep control of at least some areas in the northeast of the country in order to keep US military forces (illegally) present in Syria, keep control of the oil fields east of the Euphrates river and continue to destabilize and subvert the liberated regions of Syria.

The Americans hope to achieve that by using the Syrian Kurds as their boots on the ground.  The problem with that plan is that with the help of the Russians, the Syrians have freed the city of Deir-ez-Zor and that their forces have now crossed the Euphrates river.  Now it is the American plan B which looks increasingly threatened.  This is why the Americans are engaging in terrorist attacks against Russian military personnel.

Sputnik: What are the US’ major objectives in Syria and what could Russia expect from the US-led coalition in the near future? Did the US State Department really abandon the idea to topple Bashar al Assad?

The Saker: The US-lead coalition is composed of three entities: the US armed forces, the good terrorists and the bad terrorists.  The rest of that ‘coalition’ is entirely theoretical.  This means that all that the Russians can expect from such a ‘coalition’ are more terrorist attacks, more provocations.

The US State Department can abandon the idea to topple Bashar al Assad or not, this will make exactly zero difference on the ground.

Secretary Tillerson has proven himself a weak man, unable to even contain Nikki Haley at the UN, never mind taking any effective actions against the Neocons and their allies in the US deep state.  The latter are now back in total control of the USA.

These people have a single operating mode: war, war and more war.

As for a sudden outbreak of peace, that is their worst nightmare.

The Russians fully understand that and this is why they work with everybody else in the region, even crazy states like Israel or Saudi Arabia.  At least those two are capable of making a deal and sticking to it. In contrast, the USA are what the Russians called “non-agreement capable” (недоговороспособны).

This is why even Putin said that it is “hard to talk with people who confuse Austria and Australia”.

Sputnik: Is it possible that Daesh struck some sort of a deal with the US in order to save the lives of terrorists and preserve their positions in Syria?

The Saker: Of course!  Daesh and all the other terrorist groups are working hand in glove with the United States.  The recent satellite photos published by the Russians prove that: they are all working together and they have been doing this for years.

Sputnik: Is it possible that Washington is considering Daesh and Al-Qaeda’s affiliate al-Nusra Front as an effective bulwark against the Assad regime?

The Saker: Not anymore.  That was their original plan, but now that all the terrorists, good and bad, have been either defeated or have switched sides and are part of the Russian peace plan, the last American hope is for the Kurds.  Of course, the Americans will still be working with Daesh, al-Qaeda, al-Nusra, ISIS and all of the other labels the various Takfiri groups use, but by now they know that it is over and that they will not topple the Syrian government or even conquer most of Syria.

Sputnik: If there is cooperation between US military personnel and Daesh, was it authorized by Washington or has the Pentagon/CIA taken the liberty to collude with terrorists in order to achieve America’s objectives (oust Assad, split Syria up) using all means possible?

The Saker: I don’t have access to secret US negotiations transcripts, but it is an easy guess to make that the CIA and the Pentagon have been working with Takfiri terrorist groups as far back as the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan. This has then continued in Bosnia, Chechnia, Kosovo, and, of course, on 9/11 when Takfiri terrorists have been used as patsies to sit in the planes which were slammed in the Twin Towers before they, along with World Trade Center 7, have been brought down by controlled demolition.

You have to understand a simple but crucial fact: Takfiri terrorists are the foot soldiers of the Empire. They are the creation of the US and the US has always tried to control them, more or less successfully.

Sputnik: Could Moscow continue its cooperation (intelligence sharing and etc.) with Washington on Syria given the US controversial actions in the region? Will the US continue efforts to disrupt the Syrian Arab Army’s advance in Deir ez-Zor, Idlib, northern Syria? And what should Russia do to avoid possible US traps?

The Saker: Moscow should continue to engage in deconfliction efforts with the USA, just because there might be mentally sane US officers in Syria who would want to avoid a potentially very dangerous incident between US and Russian forces.  But the real solution is to begin to demand a full withdrawal of all US forces from Syria as they are they totally illegally.

The Russians should also accept as a fact that the US will continue to break agreements, refuse to abide by the terms of any negotiated deal, and continue to support all the terrorist forces in Syria and the rest of the region.

The United States are simply unable to collaborate in any meaningful way.  All they can do is sabotage any and all peace efforts and subvert the Syrian government.  This is very sad, but this is also a fact of life.

Instead, what the Russians should do is give their fullest support to the Syrian, Iranian and Hezbollah forces on the ground until they finally liberate Syria from all the terrorist forces, including the Americans.

'Israeli flags won’t save you': Erdogan threatens Iraqi Kurds with famine over referendum

IF AMERICANS KNEW

Why Invasion of Iraqi Kurdistan May Result in Collapse of Mid-East

Ekaterina Blinova

Sputnik: The Iraqi Kurdish issue should be solved only through diplomatic means, Israeli political analyst Avigdor Eskin told Sputnik. According to Eskin, one should take into account both the political and economic interests of regional and global players in the region, as well as the unstoppable Kurdish enthusiasm to gain independence.

In case Middle Eastern powers take a military option against Iraqi Kurdistan, blood will flow and a process of self-destruction by most of the region’s states will become inevitable, Israeli political analyst and commentator Avigdor Eskin told Sputnik, commenting on the results of the Kurdish independence vote.

On Wednesday, Iraqi Kurdistan’s High Elections and Referendum Commission announced that more than 92.73 percent of more than 3 million voters said “yes” to the region’s separation from Baghdad.

The Kurdish referendum has triggered protest from the governments of Iraq, Iran and Turkey. The three have signaled that they are ready to consider a wide range of options to tackle the Kurdish secessionism.

What’s Behind Iran, Turkey and Iraq’s Opposition to Kurdish Independence?

According to the political analyst, the states’ motivation is understandable: “While Iraq is losing a part of its territory, Turkey and Iran as well as Syria have every reason to fear that their Kurdish population would try to join their jubilant brethren in Iraqi Kurdistan.”

He highlighted that “Turkey is already suffering from an internal armed struggle with the Kurds.”

“The situation in Iran is less dramatic,” Eskin continued. “However, some fights with radical elements within the ethnic minority are taking place in the Kurdish region of Iran.”

And of course, one shouldn’t forget about the Syrian Kurds’ incentives to gain independence from Damascus, he noted.

“However, this does not mean that the war is the only option,” the Israeli analyst stressed.

For instance, Ankara threatened to undermine Iraqi Kurdistan’s energy business by “clamping” its main “oil artery” — the Kirkuk-Ceyhan pipeline.According to the Kurdish media outlet Rudaw, the Kurdish Regional Government (KRG) started exporting oil to the Turkish Mediterranean export terminal of Ceyhan in May of 2014 after Baghdad “froze payments to Erbil from the national budget as pressure and punishment for trying to go ahead with the oil sales.”

Still, according to Eskin, it is unlikely that Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan will deliver on his promise to impose an embargo on the Kurds given the substantial investments Ankara and other powerful players had made in the region.

Why Oil Embargo on Iraqi Kurdistan is Highly Unlikely

As The Financial Times reported on September 21, Ankara has “helped build the KRG’s infrastructure, including constructing a $550m airport in Erbil,” with about 1,300 Turkish companies having business ties with the autonomous region.

One should also keep in mind that in June 2017 the KRG signed a 20-year-long deal with Russia’s Rosneft to cooperate on the exploration and production of hydrocarbons.

In accordance with the agreement, the Russian company “will get access to the major regional transportation system with the throughput capacity of 700,000 barrels per day (bpd)” with the prospect of expanding the existing pipeline up to “1 million bpd by the end of 2017.”

Furthermore, Rosneft and Iraqi Kurdistan are planning to launch a pipeline to export gas to Turkey and Europe by 2019.

Besides Rosneft, Russia’s Gazprom Neft company is currently engaged in three oil projects in the region.

The other two players interested in the uninterrupted flow of oil from Iraqi Kurdistan are the US’ ExxonMobil and France’s Total.

Iraqi Kurdistan has an estimated 45 billion barrels of oil reserves and 5.66 trillion meters of natural gas, according to the KRG’s Ministry of Natural Resources.

“We can guess that Rosneft, for example, would not have signed the contract for $4 billion if there were no certain assurances from the Turkish side. The same is in the case of major Western companies,” Eskin underscored, adding that Ankara’s threats were largely directed toward “rebellious Kurds.”

Why Israel Won’t Abandon Iraqi Kurdistan

The Israeli analyst drew attention to the longstanding alliance between Erdogan and Barzani.

“The Kurds in Iraq and their folks in Turkey are deeply divided,” Eskin said. “While the Barzani family leans more towards the West and towards Israel the secular Kurdish Workers’ Party (PKK) was rather ‘Marxist’ in Western terms.”

The analyst underscored that Israel has supported Iraqi Kurdistan since the early 1960s and it “will not abandon friends after 50 years of alliance.””Israel was the first country to assist the Kurds when ISIS [Daesh] started their extermination,” Eskin highlighted. “Israel always tried to develop friendship with other minority groups such as Kurds, Christians and Persians (before 1978).”

The current progress in relations with the Arabs will not alter Israel’s stance toward the Kurdish struggle for independence, he noted.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu has repeatedly voiced his endorsement of the Iraqi Kurds’ pursuit of sovereignty.

US, European Powers Not Interested in Splitting Iraq Up’

Eskin doesn’t agree with those who believe that the West is interested in splitting Iraq up: According to the Israeli political analyst, the US and its European NATO allies “want to see in Iraq a balance between different religious and ethnic groups rather than any kind of partitions.”

“Americans especially invested a lot of efforts and money in post-Saddam Iraq and they do not want to admit the failure of their foreign policy,” Eskin explained. “Britain and France do not want to admit that their map drawing [the 1916 Sykes-Picot Agreement] for the Middle East was a gross mistake. And nobody in Washington wants to get a reminder from the Kurds that their invasion in Iraq was a total failure.”

Therefore, on September 21 the UN Security Council members almost unanimously warned about “the potentially destabilizing impact” of the Kurdish referendum and “expressed their continuing respect for the sovereignty, territorial integrity and unity of Iraq.”

Mutually Acceptable Compromise is the Only Way Out

However, the reality on the ground now dictates its own rules. While a military solution would obviously deal a heavy blow not only to the Middle Eastern region, but also to the geopolitical and economic interests of global players, the only way out is a mutually acceptable compromise and non-violent concessions, the analyst suggested.

Eskin emphasized “the great wave of enthusiasm among the Kurds” adding that those who predicted that the plebiscite would be used as just a bargaining chip between the KRG and Baghdad had obviously misread the situation.

According to Eskin, “the compromise is obvious: [Iraqi] Kurdistan will not encourage the Kurds in Turkey and Iran to rebel and in exchange — no military pressure and no sanctions [will be imposed on it].”On the other hand, however, Baghdad risks losing both oil revenues and face in case Iraqi Kurdistan secedes.

Therefore, “there is an urgent need for cooperation between Russia and the US [on the issue],” the analyst believes.

While Washington still has influence on decision-makers in Iraq, Moscow has recently emerged as a powerful negotiator and broker in the Middle Eastern region. According to the analyst, the two may potentially help solve the Baghdad-Kurdish dilemma.

Meanwhile, the Russian Foreign Ministry emphasized “the need to avoid anything that could further complicate and destabilize the already conflict-ridden Middle Eastern region,” while commenting on the Kurdish independence vote.

Moscow underscored that it “maintains… unwavering commitment to the sovereignty, unity and territorial integrity of the friendly Iraq and other Middle Eastern states.” On the other hand, the ministry stressed that it “respects the national aspirations of the Kurds.”

It pointed out that “all disputes… between the Iraqi federal government and the government of the Kurdish Autonomous Region… should be resolved through constructive and respectful dialogue with a view to devising a mutually acceptable formula of coexistence within a single Iraqi state.”

Space Technology, Global Warfare, The Pentagon “First Strike Attack Plans”. Growing US Military Presence in “Asia-Pacific Pivot

Testimony of Bruce Gagnon at Zumwalt12 Trial

 1

First published in February 2017

My name is Bruce Gagnon and I work for the Global Network Against Weaspons & Nuclear Power in Space – this is our 25th year of operation.  I specialize on space technology and the missiles that are used by the military today.  Every thing the Pentagon does today is directed by space technology.

Most of the destroyers built at BIW carry advanced SM-3 interceptor missiles (Standard Missile -3) that are key elements in Pentagon first-strike attack planning.

Living in Bath I’ve felt a special responsibility to learn about the military role of the warships built at BIW.  They have nothing to do with defending the coastline of the US – the Zumwalt destroyer ‘christened’ on June 18, 2016 at BIW is a stealth, forward deployed, attack weapon to be aimed at China. I became particularly interested in where these ships will go when they head to the Asia-Pacific.

So in recent years I have travelled to places like Japan, South Korea, Australia, Philippines and Okinawa where the US is deploying a growing military presence under a strategy called ‘Asia-Pacific pivot’ created by President Obama and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton.  The pivot requires more ports-of-call for our warships, more airfields for our planes and more barracks for our troops.

The idea is to send 60% of US military forces into the Asia-Pacific in order to encircle China and Russia.  Imagine if the reverse was happening and China (or Russia) were lining up ships along our coasts and putting troops and bases near our borders in Canada or Mexico.  We’d go ballistic.

The reason I missed the jury selection process was because I was attending my son’s wedding in Taiwan at the same time.  From there I went to Okinawa for a week and stood beside local people who have been protesting outside a US Marine base daily for more than 900 days straight.

The reason for their protests is simple: the Marine base sits beside pristine Oura Bay which is now being measured for a twin-runway airfield for US war planes. The runways will sit on top of endangered coral reefs.   People make a living from this sacred water body where endangered sea mammals now live. Two million cubic meters of landfill will be put on top of the coral reefs in order to build the ten meter high airfield. There are presently 32 US military installations on Okinawa taking up 20% of the island.  The people have been protesting regularly since 1952 against US bases but you’d never know that in the United States because these protests are not reported in our corporate run media.

This is just one example of many as the US now has well over 800 military bases spread around the world.

I was compelled to sit in the roadway at BIW on June 18 as a cry to the American people. Look at what we are doing!  I tried to give voice to the many people (mostly farmers and fishermen) I’ve met in these places who are seeing their way of life destroyed because of expanding US bases in their communities.

We can’t afford endless war nor can we afford the $4-7 billion for each of the Zumwalt destroyers. Climate change and growing poverty are our real problems but there is sadly no money or political interest to deal with these issues here at home.

Even my neighbor who works at BIW told me the day after our arrests that we can’t keep paying for these warships.

We could save lives and the planet if we convert BIW to build commuter rail systems, wind turbines, solar and tidal power systems. This would both create more jobs and address climate change.

A study at UMASS-Amherst Economics Dept. called “The US Employment Effects of Military and Domestic Spending Priorities” says that we would double the jobs at a place like BIW if we built rail systems there.  The study reports that military spending is capital intensive while every other kind of investment is labor intensive.  That means more jobs when we build things we really need.

On May 21, 2015 a protest was held by the workers at BIW that shut down Washington Street in front of BIW for well over an hour.  I was contacted by a union member who invited me to march in that protest.  The person even called the union hall and spoke with the president of S6 to ask if it was OK that I came.  He said sure as long as I didn’t bring a sign.  They were protesting the growing outsourcing of work to non-union sources.  I arrived just before noon and stood around in the big crowd for about half an hour.  There were many hundreds of workers along Washington Street.

Finally the march started off down by the South Gate on Washington Street.  The entire street was shut down and no one was arrested – including me who was marching along in the crowd.  Traffic had to have been blocked for well over an hour.

We must think of our children and grand kids.  What do they need to survive?  More war or a real future on our planet?

I am not guilty of any crime – other than not doing enough to help stop this madness.  Our demands and our actions on June 18 were perfectly reasonable.

I wanted to alert our community to a larger crime – the crime of continued preparation for endless war and destruction of life on our beautiful and sacred Mother Earth.

My decision to sit down in the road was influenced by the oath I took when I joined the military. I took seriously my oath to defend the constitution and our country and I now believe what I was doing on June 18 was in line with that oath.

Thank you.

Trump and Israel Want War Against Iran, But It Won’t be One-sided

     

 

This week’s headlines have been dominated by reaction to US President Donald Trump’s bluster against North Korea during his address to the UN General Assembly on Tuesday. This has overshadowed the equally threatening and ominous references he made in the same speech to Iran.

Anyone listening to him will have been left with two impressions: Trump’s speech faithfully echoed the utterances of Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu, and it brazenly beat the drums of war against Iran.

Trump described Iran as a ‘rogue state’ and ‘corrupt dictatorship’ that exports violence, anarchy, and bloodshed. He also said that he had reached a decision regarding the P5+1 nuclear agreement with Iran, while declining to reveal what it is. This has led many observers to conclude that he will soon withdraw from the agreement, in line with his electoral promise to tear it up on the grounds that it is the worst agreement in US history, and in deference to the dictates of the Israel lobby.

Trump is widely expected to announce the US’ withdrawal from the agreement in mid-October when he testifies to Congress in his semi-annual review. This is likely to be accompanied by a further tightening of the sanctions and the economic blockade on Iran. And it could prompt the Iranian government to immediately resume the enrichment of uranium at very high levels, giving it the capacity it to produce nuclear warheads.

It was no coincidence that shortly before Trump spoke, Netanyahu demanded that the nuclear agreement be scrapped or altered, while likening Iran to a hungry tiger on a vicious rampage in the region and the world. Nor was it a coincidence for Israeli Chief of Staff Gadi Eizenkot to announce that Israel has plans already in place for attacking Iran and Hezbollah, which he described as an Iranian surrogate whose growing missile and intelligence-gathering capacity (via pilotless drones) was a top Israeli concern.

The Israeli occupation state is the only country that backs Trump’s stance. The EU is opposed to it, especially French President Emmanuel Macron who warned it would be a ‘mistake’ for the US to withdraw from the nuclear agreement. Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov expressed the same view and vowed that his country would continue to uphold the deal.

Trump is literally implementing Israeli dictates. He is planning to drag his country and the world into a ruinous war in the Middle East: a war whose main victims will be Arabs and Muslims, and which will not spare the citizens of those states that host American military bases, which along with Israel can be expected to be targeted in any Iranian retaliation.

Iran will certainly not stand by with folded arms in response to the attempt to cancel the agreement it spent five years negotiating with the six major powers, and ratchet up the economic sanctions that have stifled it for decades and inflicted huge damage on its economy and its people’s livelihoods. President Hassan Rouhani replied by stressing that his country was ready for all scenarios, including that of immediately resuming its nuclear activities. Revolutionary Guard Commander Mohammad-Ali Jafari went further, threatening to deliver a painful blow to the US if compelled to do so. Saturday’s test of a new ballistic missile a few days after Trump’s speech – apparently taking a leaf out of North Korea’s book – was intended to demonstrate that Iran is not prepared to take his threats lying down.

After the failure of his plans in Syria and the entire region, and after the humiliating embarrassment inflicted on him by North Korean President Kim Jong-un, who defied him by carrying out fresh nuclear and missile tests, Trump wants to return to the Middle East in force and start fires there. He is confident that the region’s oil-rich governments will cover the war’s expenses and does not mind turning their citizens into their victims.

But the Israelis who are pushing for this war will also pay a heavy price. They too will not be secure, either during or after this war, as hundreds of thousands of missiles will be aimed at their cities and settlements from Iran, Lebanon and Syria. It would be the mother of all wars, and with Israel armed to the teeth with nuclear weapons, potentially the region’s last. This time round, however, it will not be one-sided.

Trump is playing with fire. He may not only burn his fingers but also millions of our innocent people unless he is restrained, and unless his deranged tendencies and the megalomania which dominates his behaviour and policies are brought under control.

Superpowers failed to advance own plots in Iraq: Iran VP

A senior Iranian official says superpowers have failed to advance their personal agendas in Iraq, emphasizing that Iran and Turkey should help the neighboring Arab state protect its borders against destabilizing acts.

In a phone conversation with Turkey’s Prime Minister Binali Yildirim on Thursday, Iranian First Vice President Is’haq Jahangiri described Iraq as an important country in the Arab world and said Tehran is strongly against the measures that threaten the country’s territorial integrity.

Jahangiri further slammed the secession referendum held Monday in Iraq’s semi-autonomous Kurdistan region, stressing, however, that “the schemes devised by superpowers for Iraq have faced defeat.”

In defiance of Baghdad’s stiff opposition, the Kurdistan Regional Government (KRG) held a non-binding referendum on secession from the mainland. Kurdish officials said over 90 percent of the voters said ‘Yes’ to separation from Iraq.

With the exception of Israel, all major regional and international parties had voiced serious concerns over the move, saying it would compound the country’s problems.

Iraqi Kurdish officials have been harshly criticized for turning a deaf ear to Baghdad’s objections and going ahead with the unconstitutional plebiscite before any negotiations and consultations with the central Iraqi government.

In the run-up to the vote, both Tehran and Ankara had held conversations with Iraqi and Kurdish officials to help prevent the situation from getting out of hand.

Jahangiri further said, “Our consultations in Baghdad are to continue, and we are trying for the developments that have followed the referendum to be managed.”

The official said the Iraqi Parliament’s ratification and the decisions made by the government of Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi serve as the basis for any decision, stressing that “we should firmly stand by Baghdad in managing the situation.”

The legislature and the federal government have both outlawed the referendum.

International borders should not be manipulated under any circumstances, the official asserted. “We should fully support Iraq and Syria’s territorial integrity, and Iran and Turkey’s solidarity in this area is very important and instrumental,” Jahangiri stated.

Jahangiri also said the recent trilateral talks held among the Iranian, Turkish and Iraqi intelligence services as well as foreign ministers have proven beneficial.

Yildirim, for his part, censured the Kurdish vote as “a strategic mistake,” which is the result of excessive demands by certain people, and had further disturbed calm in the already troubled region.

He likewise said Ankara attaches great importance to Iraq and Syria’s territorial integrity, and is against disintegration and creation of fabricated governments in these countries.

The Turkish premier also said Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan is set to travel to Tehran on October 4, expressing hope that the trip would witness appropriate decisions and agreements between the countries.


The Mossad’s role in the Kurdish Independence movement

The Mossad’s role in the Kurdish Independence movement

Mossad station chief Eliezer Tsafrir (far right) with Kurdish fighters in about 1975. In 1965 Ben Gurion directed the Mossad to train and supply Kurdish separatist guerillas. (Tsafrir was also active in Iran.)

Israeli strategists have long wished to balkanize the Middle East to make it easier for Israel to dominate the region. These efforts to break up the surrounding nations into smaller units were described by Moshe Sharett in the 1950s, by Yinon Oded in the 1980s, and more recently by the neocons in the Clean Break document. (See this article for more details.)

Since dismembering Iraq has long been desired, it is no surprise to learn of Israel’s role in assisting the Kurdish independence movement.

Michael Goldfarb reports on this in the The Forward; below are excerpts:

We have no friends but the mountains,” is an old Kurdish saying.

No friends but the mountains — and Israel — is the reality. There is a deep affinity between Israel and the Kurds. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was alone among world leaders when he endorsed Kurds preparing to vote in an independence referendum.

But it was a rare public declaration of this secret closeness. Israeli-Kurdish friendship is the geopolitical love that dares not speak its name, for the Kurds would prefer it be kept quiet. Open alliance with the Jewish State remains a taboo for most countries in the Middle East. It makes it all the more ironic that Kurdistan is commonly referred to as “Yehudistan”.

….. Israel has long held a slightly different view of the Kurdish struggle for independence. In some ways, Israel’s view is pragmatic. The Middle East could do with another secular democracy.

….. Eliezer Gheizi Safrir [usually spelled Tsafrir], Mossad’s station chief in Kurdistan in the mid-1970’s [said]:

“They called me Kak Gheizi,” he said proudly. Kak or kaka means brother. It is a term of friendship. “These are good people,” says Gheizi. “They share the same values as Jews.”

But the relationship between the Kurds and Jews has a historical aspect, too. Gheizi was there at the beginning, in the mid-60’s, when Mullah Mustafa Barzani, the first leader of the modern Kurdish independence movement, flew to Israel to ask David Ben Gurion for support.

“They asked us for three machine guns and one broadcasting station,” Gheizi laughs. “That was the beginning.”

Ben-Gurion knew the relationship had to be secret. The regional sensitivities were too great; Israel’s Arab neighbors would have seen overt help to Kurds trying to break away from an Arab country as an act of aggression.

For these reasons, Ben Gurion assigned the Mossad to handle it.

Next came training of the Kurdish guerillas, the peshmerga. “We gave them a whole line of training, from small group commander to battalion commander,” Gheizi explained. “We supplied them with field cannons thanks to the generosity of Arab Armies who left us this equipment in the wars.”

Israeli soldier Tzuri Sagi, right, was sent on a secret mission to aid Kurdish leader Mullah Mustafa Barzani in 1966.

But the main thing Mullah Mustafa wanted from Ben Gurion was an introduction. According to Gheizi, Barzani would tell Ben-Gurion, “Amrika, please bring Amrika to help us more.” When Barzani heard Henry Kissinger was in Israel, he called Gheizi and said, “Tell Yitzhak [Rabin] to bring him by the ear to meet us here.” But Israel was unable to deliver America.

But the history goes back much further than Ben Gurion. Jews lived in Kurdistan from the time of the destruction of the First Temple. Not all those dispersed during that catastrophe were taken to Babylon, and some ended up due north a few hundred miles in the Kurdish mountains. They remained there until the early 1950’s, when they were airlifted to Israel as post-colonial Iraq took on a determined anti-Semitic color. [This “anti-Semitic color” was helped when the Mossad bombed synagogues and made it look like this was done by Iraqi Muslims.]

….. Kurdish independence won’t happen soon, and relations with Israel will continue to be opaque. Mullah Mustafa’s son, Massoud Barzani, runs the Kurdistan Regional Government. Open acknowledgement of friendship with Israel will not help him.

Nor did it help when, two weeks ago, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan expressed his displeasure with the referendum and Netanyahu’s endorsement of it. This week, Bibi changed tactics and issued a cease and desist order to his cabinet, saying no one was to discuss the result publicly.

The love that dare not speak its name, the love that everyone in the region knows about, will continue to be pledged behind closed doors.

Google blocks Catalan independence info app following Spanish court ruling

Google blocks Catalan independence info app following Spanish court ruling
The High Court in Catalonia has ordered US tech giant Google to remove an application which provided information on where and how to vote in Sunday’s referendum on the region’s independence from Spain.

The judge said that the “On Votar 1-Oct” application on the Google Play smartphone app store violated the ruling of Spain’s Constitutional Court, which labelled the plebiscite illegal.

Google was also ordered to block any future applications developed by the gmail address “Onvotar1oct@gmail.com,” which was behind the banned app.

The judge said the appearance of the app once again showed the “reluctant attitude” of the Catalan government to previous court rulings to block referendum websites.

“They mean to dodge said blockades with computer applications for mobile devices, which, like the web pages, only promote and facilitate the holding of the referendum on October 1,” he said.

According to the Spain Report, Google has followed the court order and blocked the app which is now inaccessible from the Spanish territory.

“We remove content from our platforms when we receive a court order or when it violates our terms and conditions,” the company said.

The local authorities in Catalonia reiterated on Friday that the vote will go ahead as scheduled on Sunday, despite strong opposition from Madrid.

Spanish authorities have been actively working to prevent the vote as thousands of additional police were deployed to the region, with orders to take control of the voting booths.

Earlier this week, the organization managing the registration of domains ending in .cat was raided by the police.

The .cat Foundation was forced to block websites with information about the referendum in accordance to a court warrant issued serval days earlier.

According to the organization, the court order, which saw stipulated that four four .cat domains related to vote be shut, was “unprecedented and absolute [in] scope.”

Around 140 websites related to the Catalan referendum were taken down in September in accordance with the court orders.

‘Critical moment for Spain’s democracy’: UN slams Madrid’s attempts to halt Catalan referendum

Spanish attempts to hinder the Catalonian independence referendum, scheduled for this Sunday, violate fundamental human rights, UN experts said, adding that Madrid “cuts off” public information “at a critical moment for Spain’s democracy.”

“Regardless of the lawfulness of the referendum, the Spanish authorities have a responsibility to respect those rights that are essential to democratic societies,” UN experts on human rights and the promotion of democratic order said in comments on Thursday.

The experts urged Madrid to ensure that their measures against the referendum “do not interfere with the fundamental rights to freedom of expression, assembly and association, and public participation.”

The UN was referring to the arrests earlier in September of top-ranking Catalonian officials, including Junior Economy Minister Josep Maria Jové. The Civil Guard repeatedly conducted searches of the Catalonian government buildings, and the Catalan president Carlos Puigdemont denounced the “totalitarian attitude” shown by the Spanish state in arresting Catalan officials at that time.

The Spanish state prosecutor also ordered a criminal investigation of 712 Catalan mayors for co-operating with the process.

“The measures we are witnessing are worrying because they appear to violate fundamental individual rights, cutting off public information and the possibility of debate at a critical moment for Spain’s democracy,” the UN experts said.

They also criticized Madrid’s decision to deploy some 4,000 police officers in Catalonia, with an order from the Government to “act in case the illegal referendum takes place”.

“We are concerned that this order and the accompanying rhetoric may heighten tensions and social unrest,” the experts said. “We urge all parties to exercise the utmost restraint and avoid violence of any kind to ensure peaceful protests in the coming days.”

Catalonia is a region of some 7.5 million people in Spain’s north-east, which has its own language and culture, perhaps strongest in its capital, Barcelona.

The previous, informal independence referendum held in the region in 2014 saw 80 percent of those who voted choose independence. Nevertheless, the result was ignored by Madrid as the ballot was ruled unconstitutional.


Vatican diplomat accused of uploading child porn from Canadian church on Christmas

Vatican diplomat accused of uploading child porn from Canadian church on Christmas
Canadian police have issued an arrest warrant for a high-ranking Vatican diplomat suspected of uploading child pornography from a church in Ontario last Christmas holidays.

According to police in Windsor, Ontario, Carlo Capella,50, allegedly uploaded the child porn to a social networking site while visiting a place of worship last December.

“In February of 2017, the Windsor Police Service Internet Child Exploitation Unit received information that originated from the Royal Canadian Mounted Police National Child Exploitation Coordination Center indicating that a suspect in the city of Windsor had allegedly uploaded child pornography using a social networking website,” police explained.

Capella is wanted on charges of accessing, possessing and distributing child pornography police said. The offenses occurred between December 24 and December 27.

CBC reports the pornography is not believed to involve children from the area.

Capella is a Vatican diplomat in Washington and was recently recalled after the US State Department said there were “possible violation of laws relating to child pornography images” by one of its diplomats in Washington. While the State Department didn’t identify Capella, the Italian news agency ANSA did, which was later confirmed by other media outlets.

Capella has diplomatic immunity, meaning he can’t be prosecuted in the US.  The Vatican refused a request to strip Capella of his immunity, and said it was investigating the case. It yet unclear if the Vatican is investigating the Windsor case, or if this is a separate incident regarding child pornography.

The Diocese of London confirmed it helped authorities in an investigation of “possible violations of child pornography laws by using a computer address at a local church.” spokesman Nelson Couto said in a statement, the Windsor Star reports“No further comments can or will be made, as the Windsor Police Service has asked the Diocese of London not to discuss the investigation.”

Capella was born in Italy became a priest in 1993 before entering the Vatican in 2004. He was posted to India and Hong Kong.

The Catholic Church has been mired in sexual abuse scandals spanning generations across the world.

Pope Francis has said he would employ a zero tolerance policy over abuse within the church, but has been accused of moving too slowly on the issue. A 2013 law signed by the pontiff on crimes related to child pornography says crimes, “even if committed abroad,” carries a prison sentence of up to 12 years.

Israeli occupation authorities today closed the Ramallah-Nablus road near the Jalazone refugee camp north of Al-Bireh in the occupied West Bank.

Occupation forced placed concrete blocks on the main road between Ramallah and the villages and towns to its north.

The Israeli army claimed that the closure of the street was due to repeated shootings by Palestinian youths at the Beit El settlement.

Israel regularly closes roads leading to major Palestinian towns and cities further hindering the life and movement of Palestinians. Often this is to facilitate the movement of illegal settlers through the occupied territories, in particular during religious festivals.

Israeli embassy accused of pressuring UK university to censor free speech

A UK university has been accused by students of bowing to Israeli pressure and censoring free speech following revelations of a meeting between university officials and the Israeli ambassador days before an event during Israel Apartheid Week.

Email correspondence obtained through a freedom of information request, seen by MEMO, reveal details of a meeting between the Israeli Ambassador Mark Regev and senior staff at the University of Manchester (UoM) prior to an event during Israel Apartheid Week last March.

The documents were obtained from UoM after the Information Commissioner’s Office (ICO) – the body regulating data protection in the UK – found UoM to be in breach of the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) by not disclosing information requested by a student activist over its relations with controversial Israeli institutions.

Manchester University student, Huda Ammori, lodged the complaint against UoM after an unsuccessful bid to obtain details about the nature of the university’s relation with Israeli organisations. In August, the ICO stepped in and instructed UoM to provide a response to the request within 35 days, in accordance with its obligations under the FOIA.

In one of the correspondence obtained by Ammori, the Israeli embassy thanked Dr Tim Westlake, director of student experience at UoM, for “hosting” the Israeli ambassador and “discussing openly some of the difficult issues that [we] face”. The embassy also discussed ways to “increase take up of the Erasmus Programme”, which is a European Union student exchange programme.

The email correspondence includes details of the meeting between UoM and the Israeli embassy, in particular, their concerns over two events organised by the university’s Action Palestine and BDS societies, during Israeli Apartheid Week. In its email the embassy said: “These are just two events of many that they are running in their so called and offensively titled ‘Israeli Apartheid Week’.”

Israeli embassy staff accused the speakers, including Holocaust survivor and historian Marika Sherwood, of anti-Semitism. They said that the speakers had “cross[ed] the line into hate speech” and that their talk was not “legitimate criticism” of Israel. The officials were especially keen to stress their disapproval of the talk by Sherwood, which was going to compare her experience as a child surviving Nazi brutality and the injustices committed by the Israelis against the Palestinians.

In her response to the accusations, Sherwood told MEMO:

I am not an anti-Semitic Jew! I am an anti-Israeli Jew! The two are not the same. And yes, to me the way Israelis behave towards the Palestinians, whose land/property they have claimed/confiscated/overtaken is as the Nazis behaved towards me and my fellow Jews in Hungary WWII.

“We cant all go back to where our ancestors lived thousands, even hundreds, of years ago,” Sherwood reasoned. “Can you imagine all the Brits who settled in the Americas, in Australia, NZ, South Africa, coming back to claim the UK?”

Organisers, unaware that senior UoM officials had met with the Israeli embassy days before the event, were pressured to meet a number of demands before the university granted permission to hold the event: Academics chosen to chair the meetings were replaced by university appointees, publicity was limited to students and staff, the organisers were told talks would be recorded and the title of Sherwood’s talk had to be changed because “of its unduly provocative nature”.

MEMO contacted UoM over the allegation that they censored free speech, their reasons for putting pressure on the students and if it was in the habit of senior staff to host foreign embassy delegations to discuss internal university matters.

#FreedomOfSpeech

In response, UoM spokesperson said: “Events held on campus are reviewed under the University’s Code of Practice on Freedom of Speech if they concern potentially controversial topics and whenever they involve external speakers. This includes events organised through and in the University of Manchester Students’ Union. In deciding whether or not an event should go ahead, the University pays due regard to all relevant legislation, including the Equality Act 2010.”

Read: UK students to begin hunger strike in solidarity with Palestinian prisoners

“However, such legislation does not act to prohibit completely the expression of controversial views. In this case the University allowed the events to proceed in line with the requirements of the Act and our commitment to principles of freedom of speech and expression.”

While the university refuses to admit any outside coercion, the Israeli embassy has previously been found to have exerted undue influence on British institutions. Earlier this year an Al Jazeeradocumentary made the sensational revelation concerning a senior Israeli diplomat, Shai Masot, who was captured on video conspiring to “take down” certain UK government ministers such as Sir Alan Duncan for speaking out against Israeli policy and sympathising with the plight of the Palestinians.

The scoop also revealed that the Israeli embassy was providing covert assistance to supposedly independent groups within the Labour party; jobs at the embassy were being offered to groom young Labour activists; and how concerned the embassy was with removing not just Foreign Office Minister Sir Alan Duncan, but also Crispin Blunt MP, the chair of the Foreign Affairs Select Committee (both of whom are Conservative MPs), as well as Jeremy Corbyn MP, the leader of the Labour party.

Defense for Children International, Palestine

Meet Osama, age 15, attacked by settlers

Israeli settlers attacked a Palestinian 15-year-old in the northern West Bank, near Nablus, on September 6, beating and dragging him before throwing him off a stone fence.

Osama Daghlas, in a sworn testimony to Defense for Children International – Palestine, said he was sitting with his cousin in a northern area of Burqa when a group of more than 10 Israeli settlers approached from Homesh settlement, which borders the area. The group of settlers pursued and assaulted Osama, dragged him naked by his feet, and threw him around two meters (2.2 yards) to the ground.

“Several settlers were running behind me when suddenly I felt something hit the back of my head,” Osama told DCIP. “I regained consciousness intermittently and saw around five settlers dragging me. My clothes were completely torn and I was entirely naked.”

Osama’s cousin, Salah Daghlas, managed to escape. However, several of the settlers caught and pinned Osama to the ground.

“Around four settlers came towards me. One of them put his knee on my face while I was lying on the ground and another put my hands behind my back and sat on me,” Osama said.

He began to fall in and out of consciousness but estimated that the settlers dragged him on his back by his feet for around 500 meters (547 yards) towards Homesh settlement, beating him.

The group then threw him from a stone fence. He regained consciousness to see around 10 settlers standing on the stone fence above him. A settler then threw a sound grenade next to him before the group left Osama lying on the ground.

Hearing a loud sound, a shepherd came to the area and discovered Osama. The teen was treated at Rafidia hospital in Nablus.

The attack on Osama was the most recent in a string of violence incidents carried out by Israeli settlers this year. Settler violence has seen a sharp surge in the first half of 2017, according to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs (OCHA). After three consecutive years of decline, OCHA reported that Israeli settler attacks on Palestinians and their property has increased by a startling 88 percent from 2016, including seven child injuries.

According to international law, Israel has an obligation to protect the Palestinian population under military occupation. However, DCIP documentation shows that Israeli forces frequently fail to intervene in settler attacks.

“DCIP demands an investigation into the identities of the perpetrators of this attack,” said Ayed Abu Eqtaish, Accountability Program director at DCIP. “Repeated failure by the Israeli authorities to hold settlers accountable for attacks will continue to result in unchecked violence against Palestinian children.”

Welcome to Fara’a refugee camp

Standing on the roof of Waleed Abd al-Jawad’s home, you can see the entirety of the northern West Bank’s Fara’a refugee camp, a mash of concrete buildings stamped into what looks like the middle of nowhere.

As Abd al-Jawad talks, his four-year-old daughter, Tasneem, weaves around lines of laundry on the roof, the sole open space where she and her six siblings play. While Fara’a is surrounded by agricultural land, these spaces are private and inaccessible.

Poverty, cramped homes, limited public space, and geographic isolation all separate children in Fara’a from their right to play.

Tasneem was born into refugee status in Fara’a. The refugee camp was among 58 the United Nation formed in the West Bank, Gaza, Syria, Lebanon and Jordan as temporary housing for some 750,000 Palestinians expelled from their homes in 1948.

Over the next seven decades, the tent grid would be replaced with concrete structures. Successive generations would be born into the remote camp offering few outlets and opportunities.

Tasneem’s two bedroom, 590 square foot home is too small to function as a bearable living space for her nine-member family. Her siblings, fearful to play in the camp’s narrow and car-packed streets, are pushed to the roof.

Fara’a’s Popular Committee runs a park inside the camp but 14-year-old resident Sara Einajeh told DCIP most children avoid the area.

“It is not safe because people smoke there, and most of the games are broken and unsafe,” Sara said, adding that the camp park requires an entrance fee that most cannot afford.

Camp resident Abdul-Raheem Teim said that he, along with his five siblings, feel confined to the camp streets because they are forbidden from playing on the nearby private agricultural lands.

“There are no recreational places inside the camp,” the 16-year-old told DCIP. “The only place to play football and other similar games is the street.”

A British Mandate period prison formerly used by Jordan and Israel was rehabilitated and equipped with a soccer field. However, Abdul-Raheem said security guards prevented children in the camp from using the space.

The geographic isolation of Fara’a has also been detrimental to children’s access to services, according to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA). Refugee camps in other areas of the West Bank also have insufficient services, but are near cities or towns where they can access medical clinics, social services, and recreational spaces.

Aimad al-Shawish of Fara’a Popular Committee told DCIP that inadequate services force residents to travel to Tubas. While some residents obtain medical and social services as well as access to recreational space in the city, the journey is too expensive for many families to make regularly.

“I take the children to the UNRWA clinic in the camp, but most of the time they are transferred to public or private hospitals because of lack of medicine,” Abd al-Jawad said. The UNRWA clinic serves some 7,600 Fara’a refugees who live inside the camp’s one tenth of a square mile.

Faraa_4.jpg

Director of Badil Resource Center for Palestinian Residency and Refugee Rights Nidal al-Azza told DCIP he believes that refugee children should be entitled to safe recreational spaces. Without them, he said, children can’t enjoy their right to play.

The central role of play in healthy child development has been widely established because of its impact on children’s cognitive, physical, and emotional funtioning. Without play, children are less able to regulate themselves, problem-solve, or develop age-approriate motor skills, along with many other competencies.

For this reason, the right “to engage in play” is enshrined in Article 31 of the Convention on the Rights of the Child.

But after 70 years of unresolved displacement and 50 years under Israeli military occupation, disagreements are common over who is legally accountable for addressing the needs of Palestinian refugees, al-Azza said. The result, he explained, is gaps in both protections and services for children living in camps.

“We need a clear agreement or regulation to clarify the responsibilities and duties between the PA, or the host country, and UNRWA,” al-Azza told DCIP.

A look back in history shows that two United Nations organizations were originally conceived to address the needs of newly homeless Palestinians in the aftermath of 1948.

In 1949, UNRWA was established to provide humanitarian emergency relief to refugees from inside the bounds of former British Mandate Palestine. It was meant to be a short-lived effort, that would disappear with the final status resolution and resettlement of this group.

No one anticipated UNRWA would still be in operaton today, let alone providing basic services to five million Palestinian refugees.

A second organization, the little known United Nations Conciliation Commission for Palestine (UNCCP) was formed one year earlier, in 1948. It was tasked with resolving the Palestinian refugee issue, but with an inherent flaw. Meant to be both a mediator between authorities in conflict and advocate for a “durable solution” that would guarantee protections for Palestinian refugees, the organization failed on both counts.

In 2017, UNRWA continues to call the world’s attention to the plight of Palestinian refugees but has no directive to negotiate a permanent solution.

The prolonged conflict in which Palestinian refugee camps stand stagnant has blurred the lines around which party should ensure particular rights of refugees. Amid many urgent and long-standing needs, questions like who should create spaces for tag and imaginative play get lost in the shuffle.

As Israel enters its 50th year of military control over the Occupied Palestinian Territory, it continues to ignore its obligation to guarantee the human rights of the Palestinian population it occupies.

The Palestinian Authority acts as host for Fara’a camp but has never achieved the status of a sovereign state, complicating its ability to fulfill its responsibilities.

UNRWA meanwhile battles recurring funding shortages, curbing available resources.

“My dream is to build a place for children in which they could play and have fun,” Abdul-Raheem said. “It has to be large and free and for all the children. It has to be a place for children where they can pursue their hobbies and talents.”

Iraq Orders Kurdistan to Surrender Its Airports

ERBIL, Iraq — Iraq’s prime minister, angered by a vote on independence by his nation’s Kurdish minority, has given the country’s Kurdish region until Friday to surrender control of its two international airports or face a shutdown of international flights.

Kurdish leaders in northern Iraq had antagonized Iraq, Turkey and Iran by holding the referendum on Monday. The results have not yet been announced, but the Kurdish Regional Government said on Tuesday that the vote had gone overwhelmingly in favor of independence from Iraq.

A “yes” vote would not lead to an immediate declaration of independence for the semiautonomous region, but it would direct the regional government to begin the process of creating an independent state, including negotiating a separation with Baghdad.

Iraqi officials have called the referendum unconstitutional and have refused to negotiate with the Kurdish leadership. The Iraqis fear losing a third of the country and a major source of oil should Kurdistan break away.

Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi said Tuesday that his government had decided to demand control of the airports because the referendum had “destabilized” the region. He said humanitarian and other “urgent” flights would be exempt from the ban.

Referring to the Kurdish leadership, he added, “Unfortunately, some have tried to weaken Iraq and be stronger than the state.”

“We are partners in this country, and the partnership means we work together and don’t carry out unilateral decisions that lead to division and conflict and weakness,” Mr. Abadi said.

There was no immediate response by leaders of the Kurdistan Regional Government. In an address in Erbil on Tuesday night, Massoud Barzani, the region’s president, referred indirectly to Mr. Abadi’s ultimatum.

“We ask the Baghdad government not to threaten the Kurds because of the referendum,” he said. He urged the Iraqi government to enter negotiations and to respect what he said was the will of the Kurdish people to seek a nation of their own.

He added that the referendum had been approved by a wide margin, though he did not provide figures. The Kurdish authorities are expected to announce the vote results on Wednesday.

Turkey and Iran fear that a move toward independence by the Iraqi Kurds will inflame separatist fervor among their countries’ Kurdish minorities. Videos on social media showed Kurds in at least two Iranian cities celebrating the Iraqi Kurds’ vote.

The United States also opposed the vote, worried that it could set off ethnic conflict, break up Iraq and undermine the American-led coalition against the Islamic State.

Both Turkey and Iran have threatened sanctions against the Kurdish region, including the closing of border crossings. Turkish and Iraqi troops are conducting military exercises on Iraq’s northern border near Kurdistan, and Iranian forces are carrying out similar maneuvers on Iraq’s eastern border.

Turkey’s president, Recep Tayyip Erdogan, said Tuesday that Kurdistan’s action risked provoking a wider conflict, and he warned that Kurds would go hungry from a trade blockade with Turkey.

“If Barzani and the Kurdish Regional Government do not reverse this mistake as soon as possible, they will go down in history with the shame of taking the region into an ethnic and sectarian war,” he said in a televised speech from Ankara.

The Kurdish regional government, which has its own parliament and military force, operates international airports in its capital, Erbil, and in the northern city of Sulaimaniyah. There is no domestic Kurdish airline in the autonomous region.

Iraq asked other countries last week to halt flights into the Kurdish region, but only Iran complied.

Mr. Abadi is expected to meet on Wednesday with the Iraqi Parliament, which has voted to request that Iraqi troops be sent to disputed areas that are controlled by the Kurds but claimed by Baghdad. The would include the multiethnic, oil-rich city of Kirkuk, which the Kurds seized in 2014.

As the Islamic State rose in northern Iraq in 2014, Kurdish fighters took advantage of the chaos, and in some cases of fleeing Iraqi troops, to expand the Kurdish territory by 40 percent.

The Iraqi Parliament has also requested that the government consider closing land crossings linking Iraqi Kurdistan and the rest of the country.

The move by Mr. Abadi was viewed in Kurdistan as the beginning of a campaign to pressure the region to back away from independence.

For the Kurds, an independent state has been a national aspiration for generations. When borders in the Middle East were redrawn after World War I, the Kurds were denied a homeland. About 30 million Kurds are spread across Iraq, Iran, Syria and Turkey.

For decades, Baathist-led governments in Baghdad tried to crush or evict the Kurds from their traditional lands and replace them with Arabs. But the Kurds were protected from Saddam Hussein’s troops by an American no-fly zone starting in 1991, and have since built a thriving proto-state across northern Iraq.

Analysts say that even if the referendum does not result in immediate independence, it strengthens the Kurds’ leverage in negotiating greater autonomy from Baghdad.

Caught, Israel orchestrating world war, by Gordon Duff, Senior Editor VT

Caught, Israel orchestrating world war


By Gordon Duff and Press TV

 

 “The plans are clear, an invasion of Syria, splitting the Kurdish region of Iraq off, into an Israeli controlled military bastion for an invasion of Iran. What isn’t being said, however, is that, in order to push the United States back to war after a decade of military and economic disasters, assassinations, false flag terror and a campaign of counterfeit WMD intelligence is planned.”

 

The proposed moves, as outlined below and confirmed through DEBKA, would require the United States to return to “Bush era unilateralism,” moves unlikely if President Obama, Secretaries Kerry and Hagel and JCOS Chief, General Martin Dempsey were still alive, despite wild conspiratorial claims quoted below.”

related Interviews:

The Israeli “security publication,” DEBKA, a key part of their “war through deception” campaign against the world, has now made it inexorably clear, Israel is putting into motion their “final solution,” a campaign to pit nation against nation.

The result, the planet a smoldering ruin, Israel ruling over the ashes and mass graves, is a foregone conclusion, at least to Netanyahu and his worldwide terrorist network.

DEBKA openly admits plans to move Israeli troops into Syria and Iraq, to “con” Turkey, Jordan and the Arab and Gulf States into a war intended to, not just destroy Iran and Pakistan but China and Russia as well, pitting them against NATO in the fatal Armageddon they and their followers believe will ensure Satan’s dominion over man.
Do people really think like that?

Yes, they actually do, the Zionists, the Neocons, and the Dominionists, a vast worldwide network of financial criminals, corrupt politicians and power-mad tyrants. In America, those now seeking to stage a military coup in the United States, submit to full Israeli control and lead the world into a new “dark age.”
Conspiracy theory? Of course, very much so, but not just a theory but plans long whispered now made clear, plans impossible to misconstrue.

Plans in motion

The plans are clear, an invasion of Syria, splitting the Kurdish region of Iraq off, into an Israeli controlled military bastion for an invasion of Iran. What isn’t being said, however, is that, in order to push the United States back to war after a decade of military and economic disasters, assassinations, false flag terror and a campaign of counterfeit WMD intelligence is planned.
The proposed moves, as outlined below and confirmed through DEBKA, would require the United States to return to “Bush era unilateralism,” moves unlikely if President Obama, Secretaries Kerry and Hagel and JCOS Chief, General Martin Dempsey were still alive, despite wild conspiratorial claims quoted below.

Softening up the Goyim

The American president is a likely assassination target. A new 9/11 style terror attack is a necessity, the groundwork already laid at Sandyhook and the Boston Marathon.

The preparations are already underway, with political and military division in the US being contrived, “sequestration,” threats of gun seizure and a planned economic crash, another “pump and dump.”

The terrorism is underway as seen in Boston, hoax articles outlining an imaginary 20,000 man US force to move into Syria as a “buffer” have been placed in American newspapers.

World conquest and planetary annihilation

In the Middle East, Israel is coordinating with Saudi Arabia and the Gulf States along with Turkey, the Mossad supported Communist PKK terrorists in Turkey, key leaders in the Kurdish Regional Government of Iraq, Al Qaeda led rebels and Druze militias inside Syria.
Syria and Iraq will be dismembered. Jordan has already fallen to Israel and their Al Qaeda allies, now Israel’s base of operations against not just Syria but Iraq as well.

From there, the move will be Iran, then Afghanistan and the Caspian Basin.

If China and Russia fail to recognize the threat in time and “go nuclear” to block this move against Asia, the planned attack on Pakistan, scheduled for a 2015-2017 time frame will bring about a world war.

Beginning with deception and cover

More stories have been planted, more hoaxes, describing an agreement allowing Israel to build an air base in Turkey to attack Iran. Turkey has failed to issue denials though such an act would label them a rogue state. They are playing a very dangerous game and can well expect the betrayal any “friend” of Israel suffers. Turkey is fully “onboard,” cutting a deal with the Kurdish PKK, a first step toward joining Israel in a conquest of Northern Iraq. Israel has also promised Turkey an “occupation zone” comprising nearly a third of Syria.

Azerbaijan has long been steeped in Israeli/Turkish plots. They have been promised Iran’s Caspian oil reserves.
They actually put it in writing

Key to this is getting the United States to follow the plans DEBKA clearly outlines for them.
Issue 585, dated April 26, 2013 has laid out their startling plans beginning with a broad move into Syria. Israel has no plans to use its own troops, of course. Since their defeat in Lebanon in 2006, the IDF has been shown as capable of mass punishment and reprisals against unarmed civilians inside Israel and the occupied zones.

DEBKA’s “fairytale” is carefully coordinated with terror cells and death squads in the US, all working under the broad cover of America’s Israeli controlled press:

“On Friday, April 26, a few hours after this issue reaches DEBKA-Net-Weekly subscribers, Jordan’s King Abdullah II will be sitting down at the White House with President Barack Obama. When they finish talking, they will shake hands on the exact date in the coming days for the consignment of 20,000 American troops to the Hashemite Kingdom.

Obama has ordered the biggest overt surge of US troops in six years in any Middle East country.
This air base will be home to the incoming American troops. US engineering corps units have been working 24/7 to expand the base, adapt it to its new functions and construct accommodation for the GIs.
 Most of the contingents will be airlifted to their new base from US and Europe through Israeli air space, according to DEBKA-Net-Weekly’s exclusive military sources.
 Israeli Air Force jets will escort the transports over the eastern Mediterranean until they touch down in Jordan and keep an air umbrella in place over the American force for the duration of its stay.

The heavy equipment – tanks, missiles, self-propelled artillery, armored vehicles and Patriot missile intercept batteries – will be transported by sea to two destinations: Jordan’s Red Sea port of Aqaba and the Israeli port of Haifa.
These arrangements were tied up by Defense Secretary Hagel in his talks this week with Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, Defense Minister Moshe Ya’alon and Chief of Staff Lt. Gen. Benny Gantz.

In those conversations, our sources disclose, Israeli leaders offered every assistance, including air and intelligence resources, needed for preserving the Hashemite throne in Jordan, including support for the incoming US force. Netanyahu gave this pledge to King Abdullah on the four occasions that they met in Amman.”

The plans, quoted directly from the highest Israeli and Jordanian sources, could never be realized without an America crippled by powerful terrorist organizations like AIPAC, long above any law.

Current American doctrine prohibits any military action without, not only a UN Security Council resolution but a new National Intelligence Estimate. Previous “NIE’s” had found no evidence of nuclear programs in Iran. Similarly, current Israeli claims of WMD use by Syria were rejected by Washington this week.

Israel’s plans are clear. What is also clear is that many Americans will die to get Israel the war they want, the war that Zionism needs to survive.

What is also clear is that, in order to get that war, more Americans will die and that many have died already.

Irgun

The Irgun was a 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 Haganah moved 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.

In August 1948, the newly formed Israeli cabinet votee to issue an ultimatum telling the Irgun to join the IDF (thereby losing their own organizational identity) or force would be used against them. 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.

Trump warned: send help or risk making Puerto Rico crisis ‘your Katrina’

 Drone footage shows flooding in Puerto Rico after Hurricane Maria – video

Donald Trump will visit Puerto Rico next Tuesday, to see some of the devastation wrought by Hurricane Maria on the lives of 3.5 million Americans. As the president announced the visit, however, one Democratic congresswoman who was born in Puerto Rico warned that his lack of attention to the disaster so far risked making it “your Katrina”.

The White House said on Tuesday Trump had also made additional disaster assistance available, “by authorizing an increase in the level of federal funding for debris removal and emergency protective measures”.

But it took the president five full days to respond to the plight of the US territory. When he finally did so on Monday night, his comments on Twitter were so devoid of empathy it threatened to spark new controversy.

Hot on the heels of the billowing dispute he single-handedly provoked over African American sporting figures protesting against racial inequality during the national anthem, Trump effectively blamed the islanders – all of whom are American citizens – for their own misfortune.

“Texas & Florida are doing great but Puerto Rico, which was already suffering from broken infrastructure & massive debt, is in deep trouble,” Trump wrote. The US territory was hit by Maria soon after the two states were struck by Harvey and Irma.

Trump acknowledged that “much of the island was destroyed” but caustically went on to say that its electrical grid was already “in terrible shape” and that Puerto Rico owed billions of dollars to Wall Street and the banks “which, sadly, must be dealt with”.

The following morning, the president spoke to reporters at the White House before a bipartisan meeting on tax reform. Next Tuesday would, he said, be the earliest feasible day to visit the island, due to the extent of the damage. The island has been “literally destroyed”, Trump said, expressing confidence “they’ll be back”. The people of Puerto Rico “are important to all of us”, he said.

Federal authorities were landing relief supplies “on an hourly basis”, Trump said, adding that he will also stop in the US Virgin Islands, also severely damaged.

Later, at a press conference in the White House Rose Garden, he denied that he had been preoccupied with the NFL issue, insisting that the government has had “tremendous reviews” for its response, which now includes the military. “We understand it’s a disaster, it’s a disaster that just happened,” he told reporters. “The grid was in bad shape before the storm and Puerto Rico didn’t get hit by one hurricane; it got hit by two hurricanes; and they were among the biggest we’ve ever seen.

“We are unloading on an hourly basis massive loads of water and food and supplies for Puerto Rico. And this isn’t like Florida where we can go right up the spine or Texas where we go right down the middle and distribute; this is a thing called the Atlantic Ocean, this is tough stuff. The governor has been so incredible in his statements about the job we’re doing: we’re doing a great job.”

Trump added for emphasis: “Everybody has said it’s amazing the job we’ve done in Puerto Rico. We’re very proud of it and I’m going there on Tuesday.”

Trump’s Monday night tweets were the first comments he had made on Puerto Rico since hours before Maria made landfall as a category 4 hurricane, pummelling the island and destroying its entire power network with winds up to 155mph (250km/h). On that occasion he told the people of Puerto Rico: “We are with you.”

But for many Puerto Ricans the reality five days after the hurricane struck was that the US president had not been with them. About 700 Federal Emergency Management Agency (Fema) staff were on the island in a total of 10,000 federal workers, carrying out search and rescue missions and supplying basic food and water. But Trump spent those five days mired in his self-made battle with African American sports stars, seemingly oblivious to the plight of millions of Hispanic Americans in peril in a natural disaster zone.

“At the same time that he was doing all of that, we had American citizens in Puerto Rico who are in a desperate condition,” said Hillary Clinton, Trump’s defeated opponent in the 2016 election, in a radio interview which aired before Trump’s late-night tweets on Monday. “He has not said one word about them, about other American citizens in the US Virgin Islands. I’m not sure he knows that Puerto Ricans are American citizens.”

The Trump administration has refused to waive federal restrictions on foreign ships carrying life-saving supplies to Puerto Rico – a concession it readily made for Texas and Florida in the cases of hurricanes Harvey and Irma.

In the last of his tweets on Monday night, Trump said “food, water and medical are top priorities – and doing well”. On Tuesday morning, while continuing to tweet about the NFL, he wrote: “Thank you to Carmen Yulin Cruz, the Mayor of San Juan, for your kind words on Fema etc. We are working hard. Much food and water there/on way.”

On the island, Governor Ricardo Rosselló, has warned that Puerto Rico is on the brink of a “humanitarian crisis”. In the hard-to-reach interior of the country, thousands are struggling with destroyed houses, a heatwave and rapidly depleting supplies of clean water and food.

Earlier on Monday, Rosselló made a point of thanking George HW Bush and former Florida governor Jeb Bush for their calls of support.

Most Puerto Ricans were spared the experience of reading Trump’s tweets as a result of the total blackout. But condemnation was swift in mainland US. Juliette Kayyem, a former senior official in the Department of Homeland Security under Barack Obama, said Trump’s response showed “a lack of empathy of epic proportions”.

On Tuesday Nydia Velázquez, a Democratic representative from New York, said she was concerned that Trump’s continued tweets about NFL players showed he did not grasp the severity of the crisis. Referring to criticism of George W Bush following a hurricane that devastated New Orleans in 2005, she warned the president: “If you don’t take this crisis seriously this is going to be your Katrina.”

Velázquez also said she was “offended and insulted” by Trump’s tweet that Puerto Rico’s public debt contributed to the crisis.

Joe Crowley, another New York Democrat, said it was “absolutely ridiculous” for Trump to mention debt “when people are suffering and dying”.

“Here’s a president who’s used bankruptcy throughout his entire career,” he said.

 This article was amended on 26 September 2017 to show Jeb Bush was the governor of Florida, not Texas as an earlier version said.

Puerto Rico is being treated like a colony after Hurricane Maria – The Washington Post

Help never comes to the U.S. territory as quickly as it’s needed.

 September 26

Julio Ricardo Varela is co-host of the 2017 Webby-nominated In The Thick podcast and senior digital editor of LatinoUSA.org, the website for NPR’s Latino USA, a 2014 Peabody-winning show anchored by Maria Hinojosa and produced by The Futuro Media Group.

Almost a week after Hurricane Maria destroyed the U.S. territory of Puerto Rico, President Trump paused from his weekend NFL obsession to share his thoughts about the 3.4 million American citizens who are now living with no power, no real communication, limited access to food and water, eight-hour lines to get gasoline, a collapsed infrastructure, and horrific stories of desperation and survival.

The federal government had already responded with relief packages for hurricanes Harvey (Texas) and Irma (Florida). But Trump didn’t sympathize with Puerto Ricans on Monday night. Instead, on Twitter he blamed the island for its problems, as if residents allowed a Category 4 hurricane to ravage their homes to spite him. Amid the worst humanitarian crisis in modern Puerto Rico’s history, Trump reminded the world that the commonwealth still had a $115 billion debt that Wall Street will still need to collect.

No power? No food? No way to communicate with others?

Just pay up, Puerto Rico, because according to Trump, your U.S. citizenry might not get you the billions and billions of dollars you will need to rebuild an island that, officials say, was demolished so badly, it set Puerto Rico back nearly 20 to 30 years. And despite reports that short-term federal aid is now being rushed to the island — nearly a week after Maria — White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Monday afternoon that plans to pursue a more comprehensive long-term relief package are premature.

The United States may not like to see itself as the type of nation that has colonies, but if you’re not treating Puerto Rico and its American citizens the same way as you treat states and theirs, that’s the only explanation. The island always struggles to get federal aid for natural disasters that flows virtually automatically to people on the mainland. Maria is the worst example, but it’s hardly the first.

Even though Trump will tour Puerto Rico next week, the White House still seems to be taking its time asking for the money that it’s obvious the island will need. “Our focus is still continuing to be on the lifesaving efforts in the immediate disaster response efforts, which are still currently underway,” Sanders said Monday in the White House briefing room. “And those funds have been secured and are available, and once we have a greater insight into the full assessment of damage, then we’ll be able to determine what additional funds are needed, but we’re still in that kind of fact-finding process on that piece of it.”

The “kind of fact-finding process” isn’t providing any comfort to Puerto Ricans, who continue to share stories with friends and relatives on the mainland that would break the hearts of the most hardened cynic or Trump supporter. A friend of mine who lives on the island said that “Puerto Rico was hit by an atomic bomb of nature.”

As Puerto Rican journalist Jay Fonseca told me Sunday night, the early response by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) has been atrocious: Diesel fuel for generators is scarce. Towns outside metro areas are unreachable. Hospitals can’t treat patients. Countless texts, spotty phone calls and tweets from the island tell of lost homes, flooded streets, looting, highways destroyed and the real fear that some parts of the island have yet to fully report on the damage. Reporters now covering the story are finding that the initial information coming from Puerto Rican social media during the first hours after Maria was hauntingly true.

And although FEMA and Trump are now telling the world that relief efforts going well, a trusted longtime journalist friend who is covering what is happening in Puerto Rico disagreed, texting: “I’ve yet to see a National Guard, FEMA, Red Cross or federal vehicle anywhere on this island.”

Congress, meanwhile, has put out plenty of statements, but it hasn’t had any serious conversations about a real bipartisan relief package in the billions of dollars. On Monday, Sen. Marco Rubio (R-Fla.) told reportersin San Juan that the goal should be “to rebuild Puerto Rico stronger than ever. These aren’t normal times. This is a crisis.” A statement from House Speaker Paul D. Ryan (R-Wis.), though, didn’t mention any prospect of an immediate aid package or commitment to real money.

None of this is a new development in the very complicated relationship between the United States, Puerto Rico and the U.S. Virgin Islands, another Caribbean territory that was slammed by Maria and Irma.

In 1989, when Hurricane Hugo descended on South Carolina, Puerto Rico and the USVI, President George H.W. Bush was criticized for not acting quickly enough. More relief for the Caribbean had to be added belatedly to a bill that was initially meant to address damage from California earthquakes. When Georges hit Puerto Rico in 1998, it took about six months for the federal government to act on a long-term plan for the island.

Why?

Trump’s tweets on Monday offer some answers. Americans don’t really view Puerto Ricans as fellow Americans with equal rights. Nearly half don’t realize Puerto Ricans are U.S. citizens. Trump underscored this point when he brought up Texas and Florida. Those two states are getting the money, but what about Puerto Rico? Welcome to second class.

In addition, the island’s massive debt means that Puerto Rico has no money to spend its way into sustained recovery. Apparently, Trump wanted to highlight that as well. Will Puerto Rico be a serious priority for the United States? Or just a backward island with a bad power grid that has to solve its own problems, even when the most dire problem — a Category 4 hurricane — was totally out of its control?

Finally, there is Wall Street. It seems that bondholders will look like compassionless fools if they begin to ask for their money now, but that doesn’t matter to Trump, and it won’t matter to those who want to get paid. Would a relief package include more opportunities to privatize the island’s utilities and infrastructure, resulting in an island where profit is valued over the well-being of its residents?

Trump’s attitude toward Puerto Rico is just the latest example of how the United States views its island colony — good enough to be a place for U.S. companies to make money, but not good enough to have any real political power. Any push for a bipartisan solution for comprehensive relief has no political value for anyone in Washington. Puerto Ricans who live on the island lack representatives with voting power. Rubio’s advocacy is helpful, but he already represents more than 1 million Puerto Ricans in Florida. Might one motivation for his concern be heading off an exodus of thousands more Puerto Ricans to the Sunshine State, which will happen once more and more three-hour flights off the island are available?

If Washington follows its typical path of inaction, Puerto Rico’s desperation will only intensify. Will Trump and Congress eventually see that such desperation needs relief, or will the United States continue to let Puerto Rico suffer? History doesn’t leave much reason to hope for the best.

Censorship of photographic exhibition exposing Israeli brutality angers Scots

Whenever they are confronted with irrefutable evidence of Israeli brutality it seems that the only options for supporters of the Zionist State are censorship, abuse and intimidation

When Israeli soldier-medic Elor Azaria shot dead a badly injured Palestinian youth in a street in Hebron last year he had no idea that his war crime had been captured on camera. Once the shocking images were released they resulted in a trial and prison sentence which attracted international attention because of the cold-blooded nature of this very public execution.

It proved to be a hugely embarrassing moment for Israel and its supporters who, until then, had always vigorously denied accusations that Zionist occupation forces carried out street executions of injured Palestinians. Such denials were hard to maintain in the light of video evidence, and now last year’s controversy has been revived by Zionists who’ve tried to get a photographic exhibition depicting Abdul Fatah Al-Sharif’s execution closed down.

Whenever they are confronted with irrefutable evidence of Israeli brutality it seems that the only options for supporters of the Zionist State are censorship, abuse and intimidation. The pro-Israel lobby appears to have gone to astonishing lengths to get the exhibition outside an Edinburgh church banned. A barrage of intimidation, including abusive phone calls, vandalism and angry confrontations, has been endured by church staff since the photographs and explanatory captions went on display.

Now Police Scotland has opened itself to accusations of being used as a Zionist stooge after officers tried to shut down the hard-hitting photographic exhibition at the world famous Edinburgh Fringe festival. It seems that photographic evidence of Azaria’s street execution of the young Palestinian is still too much to stomach for supporters of the Tel Aviv regime.

“This morning… Palestinians Ramzi Al-Qasrawi and ‘Abd al-Fatah Al-Sharif were shot after stabbing a soldier in Tel Rumeida, Hebron. The soldier sustained medium-level injuries. While Al-Qasrawi died on the spot, Al-Sharif was injured and fell to the ground. In video footage captured by Hebron resident ‘Imad Abu Shamsiyeh, (Al-Sharif) is seen lying on the road injured, with none of the soldiers or medics present giving him first aid or paying him any attention at all. At a certain point, a soldier is seen aiming his weapon at Al-Sharif and shoots him in the head from close range, killing him. Although this occurs in the plain view of other soldiers and officers, they do not seem to take any notice.”

“The Legacy of Balfour” is a documentary exhibition created by the Network of Photographers for Palestine (NPP) on show outside St. John’s Church in the Scottish capital’s Princes Street to highlight international human rights abuses. Since it opened, it has been targeted by vandals suspected to be from pro-Israeli lobby groups. This weekend, after a complaint to local police officers, an attempt was made to close it for good.

Police in Edinburgh were called after a member of the public entered the church and became verbally abusive towards the staff inside. A female complainant, whose identity is being withheld by the police, demanded that the exhibition be shut down. The police officers agreed until church staff intervened and a compromise was reached. Ironically, all of the pictures in the exhibition depicting Israeli atrocities towards the Palestinians were removed, whereas equally graphic images of British atrocities remained on view.

The aim of the exhibition is to depict the impact of the Balfour Declaration on the lives of millions of Palestinians. In 1917, the then British Foreign Secretary, Arthur J. Balfour – whose stately home is in Whittingehame, just 25 miles or so from Edinburgh – promised a “national home” for Jewish people at the expense of the Palestinians who were living and working on the land which they rightly regarded, and still do to this day, as home. The subsequent brutalities carried out by Zionist Jewish terror gangs followed by the Israel Defence Forces on the Palestinian population were caught on camera over the following hundred years; some are part of the exhibition which examines the continuity between Britain’s rule in Palestine during the Mandate Period (1921-48) and current Israeli policies in the occupied Gaza Strip and West Bank.

While no one was available from Police Scotland on Sunday to comment on the action of local officers in Edinburgh, MEMO understands that official complaints by members of the public and the Network of Photographers for Palestine have been lodged. NPP members say that they are outraged by the attempt to shut down their exhibition.

The curator of the exhibition and secretary of the NPP is Phil Chetwynd. “Bizarrely, the woman who was complaining objected solely to the pictures and not the written explanation beneath the images which were probably more damning of the Zionist regime,” he explained. “It seems that Zionist supporters find it easier to dismiss words as ‘lies’ but when confronted by images of the work that the [Israeli] regime carries out it’s not so easy to dismiss.”

He pointed out that the exhibition has been targeted by vandals since it opened. “We have simply replaced the damaged images but this woman – and we have no idea who she is – called the local police who tried to shut it down. Our enquiries indicate that the complaint was made against just one picture depicting the murder of a Palestinian man by an Israeli soldier, and yet all the pictures of Israeli actions against Palestinians had to be taken down.”

This happened, said Chetwynd, despite protests from members of the general public present at the time. “They insisted that the story contained in the exhibition should definitely be told in full.”

What puzzled NPP members was that the same police officers decided that the pictures of British atrocities in Palestine should not be censored and should be allowed to remain on view.

It is understood that the NPP and members of the public are now lodging complaints to the Scottish Police Investigations and Review Commissioner about the action taken by the capital’s police force. Officers, they believe, have been “manipulated into colluding with this clear infringement of freedom of expression in Scotland.”

The censored pictures have been replaced by the NPP which has published the full version of the exhibition on social media, so that it can be seen in its entirety should any further vandalism take place.

Far from being intimidated by the hostile reaction, NPP members say they are now open to offers from around Scotland and beyond from anyone who wants to display “The Legacy of Balfour” exhibition at their church, community centre, library, workplace or gallery. The full exhibition can be seen on the group’s Facebook page which is also the best point of contact for Phil Chetwynd.

The NPP has a second Fringe exhibition this year on Palestinian refugees and it is entitled “Displaced”. It will go on show in Inverness next weekend and on to Lochinver before it heads to Ramallah and Gaza City in October.

UN takes first step to end Israel’s impunity

A UN list of companies that do business with Israel’s illegal settlements would boost the global movement for Palestinian rights. Ryan Rodrick BeilerActiveStills

UN officials are finally moving to hold Israel accountable for breaking international law, though they are facing fierce resistance from Israel and its allies.

“After decades of Palestinian dispossession and Israeli military occupation and apartheid, the United Nations has taken its first concrete, practical step to secure accountability for ongoing Israeli violations of Palestinian human rights,” said Omar Barghouti, a founder of the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement. “Palestinians warmly welcome this step.”

On Wednesday, Israel’s Haaretz newspaper reported that the UN’s human rights office began sending letters to some 150 companies around the world warning them that they may be added to a database of firms doing business with Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem.

This week Nickolay Mladenov, the top UN political official in Jerusalem, told the UN Security Council that “Israel’s illegal settlement activities have continued at a high rate” in gross breach of UN resolutions.

There is a growing legal consensus that international law requires governments to prohibit all trade with the settlements.

“This could snowball”

Israeli officials have admitted that many firms – though they did not provide names – have already responded to the letters by assuring the UN human rights office that they will not renew their contracts in Israel or seek new ones.

“These companies just can’t make the distinction between Israel and the settlements and are ending their operations altogether,” a senior Israeli official told Haaretz. “Foreign companies will not invest in something that reeks of political problems – this could snowball.”

The senior Israeli official confirmed what a top EU diplomat had reported back to colleagues in Brussels.

In a June memo written when he was the EU ambassador in Tel Aviv, Lars Faaborg-Andersen admitted that the EU had no reliable way to distinguish exports from settlements from other Israeli goods.

The Israeli official’s comments also echo the findings of a secret report by two influential Israel lobby groups leaked to The Electronic Intifada earlier this year.

The report, which was endorsed by the Israeli government, concluded that most of the “collateral damage” being done to Israel by the BDS movement is a result of a growing “silent boycott” – groups, individuals and companies who make undeclared decisions to refrain from engaging with Israel, either because of their support for Palestinian rights, or simply to “avoid unnecessary problems and criticisms.”

Household names

Last month, The Washington Post named some of the American companies warned by the UN that they may be listed in the database.

They include household names such as CaterpillarTripAdvisor, Priceline.com and Airbnb.

According to Haaretz, about 30 of the 150 companies are American while others are from Germany, South Korea and Norway.

The Washington Post also outlined the strong American opposition to the database, whose creation was mandated by a UN Human Rights Council vote last year. Nikki Haley, the US ambassador to the UN, has called the database “shameful” and said her country is considering pulling out of the UN Human Rights Council.

Israel has set up a government task force to try to thwart the list, but according to Haaretz, most of the officials involved in the effort believe publication of the database in December is “inevitable.”

With the list looming, US lawmakers have proposed legislation – the Israel Anti-Boycott Act – that could impose harsh fines and prison terms for companies and their personnel who participate in a boycott of Israel and its settlements that is deemed to be encouraged by an international organization.

Israel’s “desperation”

The intensity of the US pressure – and the long history of the so-called international community’s pandering to Israel – means that it cannot be taken for granted that UN officials will not capitulate again.

Two years ago, then UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon caved in to Israeli and American pressure and removed Israel from a UN list of serious violators of children’s rights.

In March, Ban’s successor Antonio Guterres bowed to US pressure and suppressed a report that found that Israel practices apartheid against Palestinians.

One of the conclusions of that report is that research and legal analyses by UN bodies – such as the United Nations Center Against Apartheid – were critical resources for civil society activists in their efforts aimed at “legitimating boycott, divestments and sanctions, and contributing to the overall formation of a transnational movement against apartheid in South Africa.”

The report urged a similar approach toward ending Israeli apartheid. Veteran campaigner Adri Nieuwhof recently wrote for The Electronic Intifada that UN registers of firms, athletes and entertainers complicit in South African apartheid gave a huge boost to the international solidarity campaign.

“That Israel wants to nip the planned database in the bud is a sign of desperation,” Nieuwhof wrote. “Israel is already a pariah state in the minds of ordinary people around the world. If Israel’s crimes do not cease, its isolation will grow.”

“We hope the UN Human Rights Council will stand firm and publish its full list of companies illegally operating in or with Israeli settlements on stolen Palestinian land, and will develop this list as called for by the UN Human Rights Council in March 2016,” BDS co-founder Omar Barghouti stated.

“If implemented properly, this UN database of companies that are complicit in some of Israel’s human rights violations may augur the beginning of the end of Israel’s criminal impunity.”


The jews as Crimeless Victims

When will the world cease to tolerate the special treatment of the jews: the most over-privileged, entitled, and undeserving minority? When will they realize what benefits the parasite does not benefit the host? The parasitic nature of the jews has long been recognized, but it is truly shocking how closely they resemble bipedal tapeworms or flukes. Just like their helminth counterparts irritate intestinal linings, the jews irritate the social fabric that holds together the communities they have colonized. The helminth worms generate a disgusting, protective mucus that insulates them from attack; just like the jews exude a form of intellectual mucus that prevents the healthy elements of a society from working directly against them or for their removal. The parasite tricks the host into tolerating it, just as the jews have tricked the Whites into tolerating every kind of perversion, amoral behavior, and hostile genetic alien in their midst; not in the least of which is the jew itself.

The endless unsubstantiated and alleged “hate crimes” that inexorably accompany any collection of jews are a prime illustration of the defensive measures used by the jews that follow the parasitic example. The rat-faced men will perpetrate the most unbelievable lies and frauds to convince the host that the chosenites are actually poor, helpless victims; not parasites draining the vitality, drinking the blood, and ultimately compromising their hosts’ ability to survive. Attempts to dislodge the parasitic jews are met with slimy, slippery accusations and claims of unlikely and unverifiable crimes against the “light of the world.” We’ve all heard of victimless crimes; the jews have invented themselves as crimeless victims. The actual crimes, those committed by the jews, are of course lost among their whining about victimhood and other pustulent effusions. And so they are quickly left at large to continue soiling the societies they have invaded.

All the typical hallmarks of the hebraic hoax were recently on display in Oakland: supposed graffiti on the wall of a synagogue, zero pictures to substantiate it, the tall tale of “hate” coming from a community that is one of the most brainwashed and supportive of the talmudic White genocide agenda, random references to Nazis, and lots of hand-wringing all around.

In the early hours of the first day of Rosh Hashanah, unknown vandals scrawled anti-Semitic words of hate on the walls of Temple Sinai in downtown Oakland. Rabbi Jacqueline Mates-Muchin got the call shortly after 4:45 a.m. on Sept. 21 from the temple’s security firm.”

Alleged wordcrime that cannot and will not be supported with any empirical evidence. The unbelievable fantasy tale of how the security service noticed the supposed graffiti in the darkness before dawn, and notified the rabbi before 5:00 a.m. Unsurprisingly, the rabbi was awake, and had probably just finished washing some paint off her hands at 4:45 a.m. A single, simple question will suffice to expose the unknown vandals: “Hey rabbi! Watcha doin’?”

There, low on the side of the building, were the words, “Fuck you Jewish Nazis.” “So they’re stupid as well as obnoxious,” [congregational president Sam] Schuchat told [JWeekly].”

How quickly the jew-controlled narrative collapses. By the third sentence in the article, the scope of the graffiti has already shrunk from being scrawled all over walls, to four words barely above ground level on a single wall. Just like the holohoax at Auschwitz, there may initially have been 4 million crimewords, then there were 1.5 million crimewords, then there were merely four; and the only evidence to support that meager number is the self-serving bleating of a hideous rabbinical creature. Oh, and for good measure, “Don’t forget the Nawrtzees and all that poisecution, you dirty goyim!”

Police were on the scene quickly, and are investigating the incident as a hate crime. Experts are reviewing video from surveillance cameras at the synagogue and from the surrounding neighborhood.”

In the city of Oakland, which is one of the most crime-ridden urban cesspools in the entire dysfunctional USSA, the police have an overwhelming backlog of uninvestigated and unsolved cases. However, they have the time to respond quickly to a non-crime “incident” based solely on kvetching. I wonder if the semitic surveillance footage “experts” will be able to resist the urge to use some of those (((Hollywood))) special effects to make Hitler appear as the alleged perpetrator in the video recordings.

Meanwhile Mates-Muchin came up with a plan: Cover the graffiti with butcher paper, and invite people to write “more inspiring messages,” Schuchat said.”

Instead of doing something that makes sense, like documenting the alleged graffiti with a camera, Moloch’s rabbi uses up the temple’s extensive supply of butcher paper to cover the entire side of the building.  Looks like they’ll have to use newspaper to clean up after the kapparot chicken sacrifices and ritual child murder.

I grew up in a synagogue where we had Holocaust survivors come talk to us,” [Sara Stillman] said. “They showed us their arms, they showed us their numbers. It seemed like a piece of history. To realize that history is not gone…”

Notice the tacit jewish admission in (((Stillman’s))) statement that the whole holohoax production is a charade: it seemed like a piece of history. It wasn’t a piece of history, it was just clever semitic play-acting to make it look like history. It is Protocol Number 5 reduced to practice: “[P]eople are content with a show and rarely pause to note, in the public arena, whether promises are followed by performance. Therefore we shall establish show institutions which will give eloquent proof of their benefit to progress.” The jew concludes with an Orwellian lament that could be straight from 1984, decrying the fact that the rat-faced men have not quite succeeded in getting rid of history.

The repulsive sham propaganda of the jews is intended to debilitate Whites with guilt, and make them pliable, docile victims for the talmudic plans for extinction through miscegenation and the elimination of White homelands.  We must stop letting the hebraic helminths have their uncontested, parasitic control over our education, our morality, our sense of justice, and our minds. We must tirelessly work for the benefit and advancement of our White race, and stop tolerating the hostile aliens who drain our racial vigor through perversion and moral corruption for their direct benefit. We must resist White genocide.

Unemployment in Gaza reaches highest levels since 2014

Gaza’s unemployment rate rose to 44 percent during the second quarter of 2017, reaching the highest rate since the end of Operation Protective Edge in 2014.

The figures were published in a 27 September press release by Gisha, an Israeli NGO focusing on access restrictions for Palestinians in the Israeli-occupied and blockaded Gaza Strip.

The 44 percent unemployment rate for the second quarter was up from 41.1 percent in the first quarter of the year.

Among people in the workforce younger than 29-years-old, unemployment rose from 56.9 percent in the first quarter to 61.9 percent in the second.

According to Gisha, “these are the worst unemployment rates since the beginning of 2014, when Israel halted entry of construction materials altogether, paralyzing Gaza’s construction sector”.

Gisha attributes the rise in unemployment rates to “a significant drop in the number of individuals employed in the construction sector (15,484 people down from 20,472 in the first quarter).

Other factors cited by the NGO include “measures taken by the Palestinian Authority against its employees in the Strip”, as well as a reduction in work hours during Ramadan.

“Such a significant decline over a very short period of time underlines the desperate state of Gaza’s economy”, Gisha states. “The continuous decline in the employment of women and young people attests to negative economic growth and a severe lack of opportunities for development”.

Summarising the situation, Gisha notes that long-standing Israeli restrictions continue, or have even tightened. “The number of people exiting Gaza through [the Israeli-controlled] Erez Crossing, including merchants and businesspeople, continues to decrease, indicating a further tightening of the closure, and no laborers are permitted to exit”.


Generations of uncertainty

Stateless Palestinian refugees in Egypt are banned from studying and working in several professions.

Pan ChaoyueXinhua

Ahmad, a young merchant living in the Egyptian city of El-Arish, was nursing a recent heartbreak.

Less than a month ago, he asked for an Egyptian woman’s hand in marriage. He was rejected, he said, because he is a Palestinian carrying a refugee travel document.

Yet his family have resided in Egypt for the better part of a century.

Ahmad’s family is originally from al-Maghar in central Palestine. They were forced out when the village was ethnically cleansed by Zionist forces in May 1948, the month the state of Israel was declared.

The family were among the estimated 11,600 Palestinians who fled to Egypt that year. There the authorities issued them refugee travel documents but not citizenship.

Unlike refugees who ended up in Syria, Jordan and Lebanon, Palestinians who fled to Egypt did not have access to relief services from UNRWA, the United Nations agency for Palestine refugees, as Egypt prevented it from operating in the country.

Vulnerable

Ahmad and his family have to renew their travel documents every three years. Their tenuous status leaves them feeling vulnerable.

“We face many problems,” Ahmad told The Electronic Intifada. “We are discriminated against when we have to present [our documents] to the Egyptian police or army on the road, and we are made to feel like settlers in Egypt with no rights.”

Their refugee status makes it difficult to travel outside the country.

Ahmad said that he and his family members have been prevented from performing the Hajj pilgrimage in Mecca, and thus fulfilling their religious duty.

“Three years ago, we were banned from attending pilgrimage. My mother and brother tried to travel this year to perform their pilgrimage, and the Egyptian authorities prevented them from doing so because they carry Palestinian travel documents,” Ahmad said.

“There are many complications when it comes to travel.”

That is not the only limitation borne from their refugee status.

“We are barred from owning property on Egyptian soil,” Ahmad said. “We have sidestepped this problem by registering our property under the names of relatives who hold Egyptian nationality, or reliable friends.”

But even when Ahmad wanted to set up natural gas service at his apartment, he said, “I had to register it under the name of one of our relatives who holds Egyptian citizenship.”

Subsequent waves of mass displacement of Palestinians by Israel have swelled the number of refugees in Egypt over the years. There were some 160,000 Palestinian refugees residing in the country as of 2014.

Israel has prevented Palestinian refugees from exercising their right of return from the lands and properties from which they were expelled.

“Golden age”

Marwan Mustafa’s grandfather came from Gaza to work in Egypt in 1962. Five years later, he was joined by the rest of his family in the wake of Israel’s seizure of the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, Egypt’s Sinai Peninsula and Syria’s Golan Heights.

Mustafa, a 29-year-old journalist, said Palestinian refugees in Egypt enjoyed better treatment during the years of Egyptian president Gamal Abdel Nasser. Nasser’s tenure, starting in 1952, is considered a “golden age” for Palestinians in the country.

“My father used to repeat a saying that Palestinians would hear in universities: Enroll the Palestinian, and if there is space left, enroll the Egyptian.”

Such treatment deteriorated after Nasser’s death in 1970. Palestinian refugees were cut off from public services such as education and healthcare after a Palestinian faction in Cyprus assassinated Yusuf al-Sibai – an Egyptian writer and culture minister who supported President Anwar Sadat’s normalization with Israel – in Cyprus in 1978.

A law enacted in 1981 restricted the participation of Palestinian refugees and other foreigners in the workforce through a regime of permits and quotas.

Palestinian refugees also have to pay extra fees for university education, and are banned from studying medicine, pharmacy, journalism, political science and economics.

Economic burden

Restrictions to access to jobs in the private sector force many Palestinian refugees in Egypt to work as truck or taxi drivers or as day laborers and street vendors.

The fee to renew travel documents and residency rights has increased over the years, causing an additional economic burden for refugees. Residency may be revoked if a Palestinian spends more than six months outside Egypt.

Palestinian refugees can obtain a Palestinian Authority passport from the body’s embassy in Egypt. But it’s next to useless.

“When I tried to apply for a visa to go to Turkey, the Turkish embassy asked for an online application because I was residing in Egypt,” Ahmad said.

But when he started the online application process, he was told to apply directly through the embassy because he doesn’t hold citizenship.

“When I went to the embassy another time, they asked me again for an online application because in their view, I should be treated like an Egyptian.”

It was yet another disappointment for the stateless young man. With restrictions on his ability to pursue a career and improve his situation, he is not marriage material. Unable even to travel, despair is a more likely companion, as for many in his position.

“I was stuck in a loop and in the end I did not apply for a visa.”

Terrorists Used Sarin in Khan Sheikhoun

Russia:

Russia claims to have evidence that it was terrorists who used sarin gas in the Khan Sheikhoun incident this past April.

Featured image: Director Russian Foreign Ministry’s Non-Proliferation and Weapons Control Department, Mikhail Ulyanov (Source: U.S. Mission Photo/Eric Bridiers)

The Director Russian Foreign Ministry’s Non-Proliferation and Weapons Control Department, Mikhail Ulyanov spoke to reporters at a press conference on Tuesday with new insights into the chemical incident this spring. Counter to the narrative supplied by the UN, Ulyanov claims the Russian government has evidence this event was orchestrated by “rebels” in the Khan Sheikhoun.

According to Ulyanov, the Russian government is “keeping a close watch on the situation. There is an enormous amount of evidence implicating the terrorists, who set off a sarin bomb ‘on the ground’ for provocative purposes, knowing the blame would be pinned on Damascus.” This is a suspicion shared by many opponents of the “Syrian opposition,” and for good reason.

There’s a long list of reasons to be suspicious of the US verdict on the Khan Sheikhoun attack, a main one being that the US had publicly stated they no longer intended on removing Assad the day before. Another fact taken into account is that no investigators from any independent bodies have been able to reach the site of the incident (inside ‘rebel’ territory), supposedly out of fear for investigators safety.

However, in Ulyanov’s words, this is a cheap excuse, and in reality, inspectors from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) are “refusing” to visit. Ulyanov says the OPCW’s position “arouses indignation” and that “according to our data, the security situation permits access to” the site of the attack.”

While the UN has pretty much stated which way their investigation is leaving, Ulyanov was fair, saying he would wait until the full results were released at the end of next month. Ulyanov stated that the official Russian position would be to wait and “study this report, will assess its quality and how serious the investigation was or whether this was once again far-removed from reality.”

Ulyanov also addressed the OPCW’s preliminary inquiries and program of chemical weapons removal that was started by an agreement between Russia and the Obama regime after the East Ghouta chemical attack pinned on Assad in 2013. Ulyanov stressed that Damascus is in fact in full compliance with this agreement. Which is another reason to doubt US claims on Khan Sheikhoun.

According to the Director, the truth is that

“not a single violation by Syria, no one has ever found any chemical substances concealed from the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons.”

He also said that the statements from the OPCW that run counter to this are, in reality, measures being taken to achieve “political goals, as a means of putting pressure on Damascus.”

In 2013, the OPCW received a Nobel Peace Prize for their removal of chemical weapons elements from Syria. This prize was held up as an example of global cooperation yet now the organization, and their UN partners seem to be backtracking, despite the OPCW saying all chemical weapons were removed from Syria last year.

NEO – Is the Kurdish referendum a bluff or the real deal?

by Jim W. Dean,  VT Editor   … with New Eastern Outlook,  Moscow

Breaking News:  Iraqi MPs demand deployment of government troops to disputed areas with Kurds

Barzani’s son controls all the security organizations and has suppressed all dissent against the regime

[ Note: The balloon is going up in Iraq, and a bizarre one at that. With only Israel publicly supporting Barzani, he is pushing ahead. He is not crazy, so he has to have more than Israel behind him.

The only possible suspects are the US and Saudi Arabia, as they have both the means and the motive, since a quasi-independent but still dependent Kurdish state will be the only viable base from which to challenge Iran and cushion the bitterness they feel for not winning fully in Syria.

This would allow them both to be military allies and funders of the Kurds in both Syria and Iraq, and to continue their destabilization programs with Israel, and then have Turkey wondering when its turn was going to come. Imagine that.

While in the article below, submitted a few days ago, I mention that Barzani wants to prove he has overwhelming support of the Kurds to strengthen his hand in negotiating a bigger cut of the Iraqi budget, so he can steal even more than he has been.

If the Kurds want someone like that leading them, then they deserve him; but Iraq has a strong position of not having an “ethnic state” inside the country; autonomy yes, but a separate state, no.

But the Iraqi MPs were quick to show their disapproval, as we had breaking news as I was posting this that they have voted for deploying Iraqi troops in the disputed Kirkuk area, which is a major oil producer. That seems to be the line in the sand for them, as Kirkuk is not officially part of autonomous Kurdistan.

This is going to be quite a show folks, so hold onto your hats. It looks like a lot more people are going to die for the greed of a few… Jim Dean ]

–  First published  …  September 25,  2017  –

The countdown to the Iraqi Kurdish referendum has begun and the battle lines are drawn. Barzani Is pushing full steam ahead, stating that he sees no other option. Baghdad has taken a legal stance, which is of no concern whatsoever for the Kurds despite their having agreed to the Iraqi constitution.

Abadi has led Iraq through tremendous challenges

Prime Minister Abadi was the first to mention possible military action, but with the important caveat of there being Kurdish military violence against those in the Kurdish region, especially Kirkuk, opposing the referendum. This would not be the first time that a war was started to protect a minority.

Look what happened with the crazy Neo-fascists in Ukraine, who crowed from the podium of their Parliament, the Rada, that they planned to ethnically cleanse Ukraine of all Russians. That country is now a crippled Western puppet, with the standard of living much worse due to looting by its criminal oligarchy class, one supported by the US.

All were blind, or in denial, to the disaster that loomed before them, and of course, none of them will accept responsibility for any of it. This government unaccountability is growing into the biggest national security issue that all citizens face, which includes more countries falling under the control of these criminal oligarchies, where they become un-prosecutable.

Do we have a similar situation to Ukraine looming in Iraq? Can Baghdad really risk a civil war with the Peshmerga while it is still fighting ISIS after a long and devastating war? Where will the retreating ISIS fighters from Deir Ezzor in Syria retreat to but to Iraq, to express their bitterness in defeat by engaging in a never ending terror bombing war which still plagues Iraq?

Iraq finally joins Syria to defend their border

Al-Bakumal is a strategic border crossing for both Syria and Iraq

The Iraqi army is pushing toward the Al-Bakumal crossing to close that back door, at least on ISIS convoys being able to cross over, carrying arms and equipment to reinforce the surviving ISIS units there.

The SDF Kurds announced they are pivoting north of Deir Ezzor, westward, to clear ISIS from the east side of the Euphrates to the Syrian border, all non-Kurdish territory, and which just happens to have one of the richest oil fields in Syria. The US and SDF are engaged in a war of aggression on Syria, replacing ISIS as the tool to accomplish that.

I don’t think Syria is about to let them take the rich oils field there, and will use its air force to defend them. To allow them to be stolen by the US and SDF, after the huge sacrifices of the Syrian Army and people would stain there hard fought victory. That would pose the question of what will the Russian air force do, and then how would the US coalition respond.

The Russians have said they are only in Syria to fight ISIS. The US says the same, but also that it will protect its proxy Kurdish forces. So far the Kurds have chased ISIS out of their own territory and then selectively taken traditional Arab land and resources to add to the wealth of a future Kurdish independent state.

And yes, it would be one with US military bases on it and all the protection that the Pentagon could supply, so the US still ends up with a Balkanization of Syria it sought from the beginning. You can look to South Korea as a working example.

Russian command demonstrates what it can and will do

The Russians recently showed what they can do to back up their own forces and allies if they want to. HTS in Idlib province, prompted by someone, launched a major attack against the SAA in Hama while the deconfliction logistics were still incomplete. The goal seems to have been to inflict a devastating loss on the SAA to draw emergency reinforcements away from the critical Deir Ezzor battle, possibly so someone else would have a better chance at grabbing the oil wells east of the city.

The HTS offense was successful initially, pushing the SAA back until they reached a point where a Russian police monitoring force of 29 men was cut off and surrounded, providing a plum capture prize to use as hostages. The Russian police fought hard to hold their positions, knowing that the cavalry would be coming, on the ground and from the air. Both Syrian and Russian air power were concentrated to crush the HTS attacking force, and to bomb its logistics bases to bits.

General Rudskol of the Russian command was putting on display what it would inflict upon attacking jihadis threatening to eliminate a Russian monitoring force. After 24 hours of combat, the Russian command reported 850 dead jihadis, 11 tanks, 4 infantry vehicles, 46 technicals, 5 mortars, 20 trucks, and 38 ammunition depots destroyed.

A joint special ops force of Russian and Syrian commandos fought their way through, to relieve the 29 Russian policemen with no KIAs reported. Part of this was due to two SU-25s providing low level air cover for them as they advanced. This day will be studied in Russian military academies for a long time.

I share that story because both sides in Iraq have to be careful not to bring ruin down on themselves after having a long war with ISIS, and now with a country that needs rebuilding. To now stumble into a civil war, thinking there will be a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow would be delusional.

So far, the Barzani Kurds only have Israel as a public supporter, due to their long and intimate relationship, which includes supporting Kurdish terrorism against Iran, where the MEK alone is credited with 12,000 victims, (four 9-11s), with all their names on the rolls of the Habilian victims’ Association.

The Kurds and regional Politics

Turkey knows that independence for Iraqi Kurds would light a time-bomb fuse that could not be put out. Its posing that it could trigger a regional conflict was not an exaggeration. Iran has promised to close its border with Iraq if the Kurdistan referendum takes place.

Turkey, for now, has promised it would impose sanctions, but would that include the off-the-books oil exports that have flowed out the back door via the Turkish pipeline? Turkey has its own looting oligarchy. Would they give that up?

At the end of the day I suspect this may all be about money behind a nationalist smokescreen. The Kurds want a bigger share of Iraq’s oil wealth and are gambling this is a good time to get it. But what has not been reported much is that they just did this back in 2014.

Baghdad’s 2014 deal with the Kurdish region

Baghdad got 550,000 barrels of oil a day from the Kurds for 17% of the Iraqi budget, plus anything else going out the back door via Turkey that could all be in Barzani’s pocket, or his war fund. The Peshmerga got a billion dollars in military support to fight ISIS, and yes, you can assume that a good hunk of that money disappeared.

What the Kurds need is long term development, but the allure of a monthly stipend from the countries oil wealth is very seductive, as are the one-hour-a-day jobs that many Saudis have that work for the government. A moral rot consumes a country where everyone fights to get on the gravy train.

My bet is that Barzani is thinking he will use the referendum to say get his cut of the budget up to say 25%. But I think that is a bad bet as Baghdad would look like a fool to be renegotiating the Iraqi Constitution every few years to suit the Kurds. Will it decide to see “a permanent solution” to the Kurdish problem which could be a disaster for both? That is the big question, and we also have to ask who would benefit the most from that disaster, with the answer being “the usual suspects”.

The Kurds’ weak economic point is their having an undiversified economy where everyone looks toward increased oil revenues as their salvation. But for Barzani it has been a great unifier politically. Baghdad has been struggling with its own serious economic problems where ironically, despite its energy wealth, much of that failure is due to not having had enough electricity for manufacturing businesses to increase critically needed domestic production and jobs, and reduce imports.

Iraq also has a ruling class that has been a looting class, taking its purloined funds out of the country, to the UAE generally. But fortunately the new Iranian gas pipelines are coming on stream to fix the electric power shortage so manufacturers can operate more than a few hours a day.

Showdown at the Kirkuk corral

Barzani and Abadi are playing a big game of chicken now, hoping the other will blink and back off. The Iraqi popular militias (PMUs) think that a civil war is unavoidable, and are ready for it. But if someone can fund the PMUs as Iran has done, then outside powers can intercede to help the Kurds, and will do so.

Some think that could be the Saudis wanting an anti-Iran base in Iraqi Kurdistan. After all, the King had stated that regime change in Iran was his main goal. Good luck with that your highness. But the Saudis have now publicly come out against the referendum, maybe feeling that a civil war would push Baghdad more into the hands of Iran.

We are just starting to climb out of the tragic mess in Syria and also Iraq, with what looks like a special delivery service bringing a new replacement war to the region. I fear for the Iraqi people as I did for the Syrians during my 2014 trip as an election monitor.

I could never have foreseen the turnaround that has happened, not in my wildest imagination. Syria is now the template for how not to be swallowed by the US Deep State and its allies. You have to have powerful friends who also know they are on the menu, and that a coalition defense is the only way to survive.

Humanitarian catastrophe in Raqqa & numerous US mistakes, airstrikes on civilian objects – Moscow

Humanitarian catastrophe in Raqqa & numerous US mistakes, airstrikes on civilian objects – Moscow
Repeated targeting mistakes of the US-led coalition in Raqqa have caused significant damage to civilian infrastructure in the city, while a lack of humanitarian aid has led to a catastrophe, a senior Russian diplomat said.

Oleg Syromolotov, who supervises counterterrorism cooperation with other nations on behalf of the Russian Foreign Ministry, said the actions of the US and its allies in Syria differ greatly from how Russia acts.

Russia actively works to provide humanitarian assistance in Syria and bring about a return to normal life on the ground while “the same cannot be said about the US and its cohort,” the diplomat told the RIA Novosti news agency in an interview.

“We are witnessing a humanitarian catastrophe in Raqqa as we previously did in Mosul [in Iraq]. It was caused by a lack of effective effort to deliver humanitarian aid and create corridors for the evacuation of civilian population, as well as persistent mistakes of the US Air Force, including airstrikes targeting civilian sites,” he stressed.

The Russian diplomat voiced the accusations in an interview with the agency, which will be published in full later on Friday.

Last Sunday, the high civilian death toll of the Raqqa siege and US reluctance to acknowledge it was highlighted in a report released by Human Rights Watch.

“There is enough evidence to indicate that many civilians were killed, dozens,” Nadim Houry, HRW director of terrorism and counterterrorism division, told RT. “When we asked them [US-led coalition]… on how they conducted their investigation they said these were… secrets that they could not share with us.”

The government in Damascus on Thursday called on the UN Security Council to pressure the US, so that American troops would stop “systematic” airstrikes targeting civilian infrastructure in Syria. The Syrian government reiterated that the US presence on its territory was illegal.

Syromolotov reiterated Russia’s criticism of Washington’s failiure to cooperate with the Syrian government in Damascus in tackling terrorism.

“This is an absurd situation, in which a foreign force, present on Syrian territory illegally and without consent from the government of Syria, starts imposing some geographic boundaries for the Syrian Army, which is fighting to free its own country from terrorists,” he stressed.

The remark is an apparent reference to US troops in Syria attacking militia fighters allied with Damascus, saying the troops were targeted upon crossing the border of the American zone of control.

Despite setbacks and international efforts to curb foreign funding, IS and other terrorist groups continue to receive funding and supplies from outside of Syria, Syromolotov pointed out.

“The most imminent task for the international community is to eradicate ISIL and other UN-designated terrorist organizations, including Jabhat Al-Nusra, regardless of what rebranding this Al-Qaeda offshoot uses to hide. The issue here is not only the resources this ‘terrorism international’ has in its own right,” he said.

The Russian diplomat said Moscow had the impression that the US is not eager to see IS fully defeated.

“We tell our American colleagues: we are offering coordination of our efforts in fighting terrorists in Syria, but you reject it. Who benefits? ISIL,” he said.

He added that Russia maintains contact with the US to avoid potential conflicts over their respective military operations in Syria.

“The dialogue continues on the level of military specialists. For example, the Russian military command in Syria informed their American partners through an established channel about the area of operation against ISIL in Deir ez-Zor,” the diplomat said, calling the terrorist group Islamic State (IS) by its former name.


Alarming graphic predicts radioactive aftermath of N. Korean nuclear launch

Alarming graphic predicts radioactive aftermath of N. Korean nuclear launch
In “response to inquiries,” a graphic has been posted online showing the expected range of a radioactive cloud resulting from a North Korea-launched nuclear bomb over the Pacific Ocean. While quite alarming, it was found too rough by some users.

The simulation was posted on Twitter by Lassina Zerbo, the head of the Comprehensive Nuclear Test Ban Treaty Organization, which is tasked with monitoring weapons tests.

Zerbo called it a “rough simulation” of a “radio-isotope cloud” from a “hypothetical atmospheric burst” over the Pacific.

In response to inquiries: Rough simulation (Sept15-29) of -isotope cloud from hypothetical atmospheric burst over Pacific:  

The graphic did not provide supporting data, nor the threat that such a cloud could pose to human health. Zerbo later clarified that it was “simply a rough simulation” that he posted in response to inquiries.

Simply a rough simulation of potential cloud that cld carry isotopes! In response to specific inquiries and nothing more.

Some people weren’t happy with the post, with one person calling it “misleading” and saying that “folks will interpret [it] as cataclysmic.”

This is very misleading. Folks will interpret as cataclysmic. Localized rad levels and global fallout totally different.

A Harvard PhD professor said that people “will confuse it with the kinds of fallout clouds they are used to reading about, the ‘take shelter for 2 weeks’ kind.”

They will confuse it with the kinds of fallout clouds they are used to reading about, the “take shelter for 2 weeks” kind.

It comes as Washington and Pyongyang continue their war of words, with President Donald Trump vowing“devastation” for North Korea on Tuesday, should the US decide to pursue a military option to deal with the crisis.

His warning came after North Korean Foreign Minister Ri Yong-ho told the UN General Assembly (UNGA) in New York that Trump’s insults against leader Kim Jong-un make “our rocket’s visit to the entire US mainland inevitable.”

According to Ri, the “most powerful detonation of an H-bomb” would be one possible “highest-level” action against the US.

“It could be the most powerful detonation of a hydrogen bomb in the Pacific,” Ri told Yonhap while in New York. “We have no idea about what actions could be taken, as it will be ordered by leader Kim Jong-un.”

H-bombs, or hydrogen bombs, are thermonuclear weapons which are more powerful than fission-based atomic bombs. You can read about them in more detail here.

Responding to Ri’s comments at the UNGA, Trump posted on Twitter that the North Korean leadership “won’t be around much longer,” while calling Kim “Little Rocket Man.”

Just heard Foreign Minister of North Korea speak at U.N. If he echoes thoughts of Little Rocket Man, they won’t be around much longer!

North Korea is believed to have conducted six nuclear tests, with the latest viewed as the most powerful. Monitoring groups estimate the September 3 test was 16 times the size of the bomb that destroyed Hiroshima, Japan, in 1945.

The United Nations has implemented sanctions against Pyongyang in response to the tests. The sanctions include capping crude oil supplies to North Korea at present levels and reductions in other commodities. They also include banning textile imports.

Earlier this week, the Trump administration announced additional sanctions against eight North Korean banks and 26 individuals who the US says act as the banks’ representatives in various countries.

Meanwhile, Russian Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov urged all parties to stick to a diplomatic approach to the crisis last week, saying “we have to calm down the hotheads and understand that we need pauses, we need contacts.”

Russia and China have both called on all sides to avoid escalation of the crisis, and have devised a double freeze plan which would see North Korea suspend its nuclear and ballistic missile tests in exchange for a halt in joint US-South Korea military exercises. That plan, however, was promptly rejected by Washington.

“The Wars Of The Jews”, Part II – Israel presents replica Arch of Titus to UNESCO

ROME TITUS JERUSALEM

ED-NOTE – They chose a replica of the Arch of Titus to prove THE link between the Jews and Jerusalem. They could have chosen something else, but no, they took THE symbol of the “Wars of the Jews” against Athens-Rome-Edom-Christianity, in one word: the West. And it is no accident. The “Wars of the Jews” against us have never ceased though they took a different form. Learning from their mistakes, they understood the best course of action was to live and wage war ‘by way of deception’, thru infiltration and subversion and that strategy has proven to be the right one.  They gave up trying to fight Rome/Christian Europe/the West in a fair fight out in the open as they did 2000 years ago. Instead, they got us and are still getting us to destroy ourselves with our own hands and with a smile on our face. 

The Arch of Titus is highly symbolic on many accounts. It is now impossible to walk underneath it but when that was still possible to do so, Jews never did. All  Church and civil officials in Medieval Christian Rome were sworn into office underneath the Arch. The Jewish Moshiach (our Anti-Christ/Dajjal) will reveal himself in the Roman Forum, some say it will be underneath the Arch of Titus, though some others deny this claim. The Arch of Titus/Rome is one of the main key needed to decipher the Jewish ‘enigma’, the other key being Babylon. We have said it many times before and we say it again: it is impossible – repeat: IMPOSSIBLE – to understand the history of Europe/the West since the Renaissance to our present time, it is impossible to understand our current XXIst Century geopolitical situation and the rush to war without knowing Roman History and Jewish Eschatology.

IMPOSSIBLE.

——————————————————————————-

YNET – Israel presented the United Nations Education, Science and Culture Organization (UNESCO) with a replica of a portion of the Arch of Titus depicting the destruction of the Second Temple in Jerusalem.

The replica, created by Israel’s Antiquities Authority with prior agreement from the Italian holders of the rights to the monument, is an exact copy of a portion of the inside wall of the Rome landmark.

It depicts a triumphal procession by Roman soldiers returning from destroying the Second Temple in Jerusalem and exiling the Jewish people, carrying the Temple’s Menorah, among other ritual items.

The idea was devised by Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, following the organization’s decision last year that failed to acknowledge Jewish ties to the Temple Mount or Western Wall.

Israel hopes the replica of the panel from the arch, which will be put on display at UNESCO’s headquarters, will serve as a reminder the Second Temple had in fact existed on the Temple Mount, a fact vigorously denied by the Arab states.

Carmel Shama-Hacohen, Israel’s envoy to UNESCO, presented the gift to Director Irina Bokova in a ceremony Tuesday at the organization’s Paris headquarters.

The ceremony was also attended by Chairman of the UNESCO Executive Board, Michael Worbs, as well as the envoys of France, Italy, Spain, the Netherlands and other countries.

“The Arch of Titus was not built by Jews or made to their specifications,” said Shama-Hacohen. “It is also not the result of a political vote led mostly by modern-day dictatorships, but a decision made in real-time some 2000 years ago by the Romans to glorify themselves and demean the exiled Jewish people.”

“Ever since, Jews have endeavored to never pass underneath it as it was a symbol of ruin and humiliation. It was a twist of fate, then, and an UNESCO absurdity, that it’s precisely this element that strengthens the position of Israel and the Jewish people as to their special historical bonds with the Temple Mount, the Wall and Jerusalem in general,” he concluded.

Only hours after a terror attack in Har Adar, Shama-Hacohen said decisions made against Israel in UNESCO “risk human lives.”

The ambassador thanked Director Bokova several times in his speech for coming out against the anti-Israeli decisions, raising the ire of the organization’s Arab lobby.

Director Bokova said the original Arch of Titus illustrates a tragic occurrence in the annals of the Jewish people and serves as testimony to the thousands of years-long link between the Jewish people and Jerusalem.

“Knowledge is key in fighting any form of prejudice, hatred, xenophobia, racism and anti-Semitism—especially when those are bred on a bed of ignorance and on turning a blind eye to history,” Bokova said.

The Mossad’s role in the Kurdish Independence movement

The Mossad’s role in the Kurdish Independence movement

Mossad station chief Eliezer Tsafrir (far right) with Kurdish fighters in about 1975. In 1965 Ben Gurion directed the Mossad to train and supply Kurdish separatist guerillas. (Tsafrir was also active in Iran.)

Israeli strategists have long wished to balkanize the Middle East to make it easier for Israel to dominate the region. These efforts to break up the surrounding nations into smaller units were described by Moshe Sharett in the 1950s, by Yinon Oded in the 1980s, and more recently by the neocons in the Clean Break document. (See this article for more details.)

Since dismembering Iraq has long been desired, it is no surprise to learn of Israel’s role in assisting the Kurdish independence movement.

Michael Goldfarb reports on this in the The Forward; below are excerpts:

We have no friends but the mountains,” is an old Kurdish saying.

No friends but the mountains — and Israel — is the reality. There is a deep affinity between Israel and the Kurds. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was alone among world leaders when he endorsed Kurds preparing to vote in an independence referendum.

But it was a rare public declaration of this secret closeness. Israeli-Kurdish friendship is the geopolitical love that dares not speak its name, for the Kurds would prefer it be kept quiet. Open alliance with the Jewish State remains a taboo for most countries in the Middle East. It makes it all the more ironic that Kurdistan is commonly referred to as “Yehudistan”.

….. Israel has long held a slightly different view of the Kurdish struggle for independence. In some ways, Israel’s view is pragmatic. The Middle East could do with another secular democracy.

….. Eliezer Gheizi Safrir [usually spelled Tsafrir], Mossad’s station chief in Kurdistan in the mid-1970’s [said]:

“They called me Kak Gheizi,” he said proudly. Kak or kaka means brother. It is a term of friendship. “These are good people,” says Gheizi. “They share the same values as Jews.”

But the relationship between the Kurds and Jews has a historical aspect, too. Gheizi was there at the beginning, in the mid-60’s, when Mullah Mustafa Barzani, the first leader of the modern Kurdish independence movement, flew to Israel to ask David Ben Gurion for support.

“They asked us for three machine guns and one broadcasting station,” Gheizi laughs. “That was the beginning.”

Ben-Gurion knew the relationship had to be secret. The regional sensitivities were too great; Israel’s Arab neighbors would have seen overt help to Kurds trying to break away from an Arab country as an act of aggression.

For these reasons, Ben Gurion assigned the Mossad to handle it.

Next came training of the Kurdish guerillas, the peshmerga. “We gave them a whole line of training, from small group commander to battalion commander,” Gheizi explained. “We supplied them with field cannons thanks to the generosity of Arab Armies who left us this equipment in the wars.”

Israeli soldier Tzuri Sagi, right, was sent on a secret mission to aid Kurdish leader Mullah Mustafa Barzani in 1966.

But the main thing Mullah Mustafa wanted from Ben Gurion was an introduction. According to Gheizi, Barzani would tell Ben-Gurion, “Amrika, please bring Amrika to help us more.” When Barzani heard Henry Kissinger was in Israel, he called Gheizi and said, “Tell Yitzhak [Rabin] to bring him by the ear to meet us here.” But Israel was unable to deliver America.

But the history goes back much further than Ben Gurion. Jews lived in Kurdistan from the time of the destruction of the First Temple. Not all those dispersed during that catastrophe were taken to Babylon, and some ended up due north a few hundred miles in the Kurdish mountains. They remained there until the early 1950’s, when they were airlifted to Israel as post-colonial Iraq took on a determined anti-Semitic color. [This “anti-Semitic color” was helped when the Mossad bombed synagogues and made it look like this was done by Iraqi Muslims.]

….. Kurdish independence won’t happen soon, and relations with Israel will continue to be opaque. Mullah Mustafa’s son, Massoud Barzani, runs the Kurdistan Regional Government. Open acknowledgement of friendship with Israel will not help him.

Nor did it help when, two weeks ago, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan expressed his displeasure with the referendum and Netanyahu’s endorsement of it. This week, Bibi changed tactics and issued a cease and desist order to his cabinet, saying no one was to discuss the result publicly.

The love that dare not speak its name, the love that everyone in the region knows about, will continue to be pledged behind closed doors.

Instead of Taylor Force Act, Congress should consider Rachel Corrie Act, Orwah Hammad Act

Instead of Taylor Force Act, Congress should consider Rachel Corrie Act, Orwah Hammad Act

Sometimes it takes a tragedy to bring about change. The story of Taylor Force is one such tragedy. A young American in the prime of his life was stabbed to death in an unnecessary, unprovoked act of terrorism while  in Israel on a Vanderbilt University study program. Perhaps the only good that can come of such a dreadful event is in learning a lesson to ensure that it never happen again.

Our government wants to protect its citizens wherever they are in the world, so enacting some constructive legislation would be a smart move. Unfortunately, that’s not what Congress is currently contemplating.

The US Senate is debating a bill right now—the Taylor Force Act—that would prohibit foreign aid to the Occupied Palestinian Territories unless the Palestinian Authority ends stipends to the families of those who have been killed, injured, or imprisoned. Congressional reasoning is that the so-called “Martyrs’ Fund” encourages terrorism.

The United States currently gives The Palestinian Authority a relatively small amount of aid each year (in 2016 about $300 million, roughly 8 percent of what Israel receives); the Taylor Force Act would withhold about $230 million until the Fund disappears.

It is important to understand that this fund is not an incentive for Palestinians to commit terrorism. It is a social program to provide for the families of those killed, injured, or held prisoner by hostile forces. 

Most of the fund provides for those killed or injured while peacefully demonstrating, defending their property, or going about their business, and the thousands wrongly imprisoned or detained without charge. This is the program that would be shut down by the Taylor Force Act.

The fund also supports Palestinians killed by Israel while using armed resistance – in the case of Taylor Force, a knife – against a country that has one of the most powerful, advanced militaries on earth.

It is customary for members of an oppressed population to resist. In fact, it is an internationally recognized right, as stated by the UN in 1982:

The General Assembly…reaffirms the legitimacy of the struggle of all peoples for independence….and liberation from…foreign occupation by all available means, including armed struggle.

Palestinians have engaged in this struggle for independence from foreign occupation since 1967, only to find themselves losing more lives, land, and rights every day.

Undeniably, the killing of Taylor Force and other civilians is a war crime, and it is legitimate to abhor such a crime–no matter the nationality of the criminal. All countries that engage in war have killed large numbers of civilians–nevertheless, all governments provide for the families of soldiers who have died in the line of duty. This includes the Palestinian government. Enabling these families to put food on the table is not an endorsement of any act of terrorism but a humane, compassionate act. No country should be required to withhold such support.

It must also be said that the shutdown of this social program would likely result in the opposite of the intended outcome: it may lead to yet more resentment and extremism.

Proposed legislation that could make things better, not worse

Perhaps instead of the Taylor Force Act, Congress should bring some other bills to the floor—bills that would begin to address the real problems in Israel/Palestine.

Here are a few suggestions.

We could start with the Rachel Corrie Act, prohibiting the U.S. from giving aid to countries that practice home demolitions. Rachel Corrie was killed in 2003 as she worked in Palestine with the International Solidarity Movement (ISM). Rachel, clearly visible with a neon vest and bullhorn, confronted an IDF soldier on a bulldozer, about to demolish the home of a Palestinian pharmacist, when she was run over in what is widely believed to be a deliberate act.

The incident was investigated by the Israeli army and deemed “a regrettable accident” (as is often the case when Israelis are violent). An IDF spokesman explained that the group of protesters that day were “acting very irresponsibly, putting everyone in danger.” Interestingly, peacekeepers were the danger, not the demolition team at the home of an innocent man and his family.

The Rachel Corrie Act might discourage Israel from this ongoing, illegal practice. (Over 48,000 homes and other structures have been destroyed since the occupation began in 1967.) Rachel Corrie was from Washington, so Senators Patty Murray (D) and Maria Cantwell (D) from Washington should consider sponsoring such a bill. It might encourage Israel to desist from the collective punishment practice of demolishing homes.

Another idea for legislation would be the Brian Avery Act. This bill would prohibit the U.S. from giving aid to countries that use curfews as a form of collective punishment. Brian Avery was shot in the face in an unprovoked attack by Israeli soldiers during a curfew in the West Bank city of Jenin.

Curfews often last for days or weeks, sometimes even months, with only brief respites to obtain food. Sometimes the interludes are cut short without warning, and then enforced punitively. Palestinians have often been killed or injured during curfews; many more have their education disrupted, lose their jobs, or go out of business; the health of others suffers due to lack of medication or medical treatment. In addition, curfews often include home invasions and detentions.

Brian Avery, an American, was acting as an international observer during the curfew as he, like Rachel Corrie, worked for the ISM. He was wearing a reflective vest and had his hands up, but he was shot and seriously injured. His injuries were too severe to handle in the local hospital, but Israel spent several hours in negotiation before allowing him to be transported to an Israeli hospital. Even still, the ambulance was stopped at the border for an hour.

The investigation into this incident was completely botched and Brian’s injury was deemed “an unfortunate incident” because according to IDF Colonel Dan Hefetz, ISM activists “knowingly endanger themselves.” The Brian Avery Anti-Curfew Act might stop this dangerous form of collective punishment from causing any more tragedies. Brian came to Palestine from New Mexico, so Martin Heinrich (D) and Tom Udall (D) should consider sponsoring the bill. It could save the lives, careers, businesses, and health of many Palestinians.

Another possible piece of legislation would be the Emily Henoschowitz Act, which would limit aid to countries that illegally besiege another country or practice piracy on the high seas. Emily Henoschowitz is an Israeli-American who got involved with ISM in 2010 when she found the Palestinian situation too compelling to ignore.

While Emily was in Palestine, the Gaza Freedom Flotilla, loaded with humanitarian aid and construction materials for Gaza, was attacked by Israel. Nine Turkish citizens (one also an American citizen) were killed. When Emily heard about this incident, she joined in a demonstration. She was hit in the face with a tear gas canister.

Emily resents the attention she has gotten over her injury, compared to hordes of Palestinians who are injured or killed daily without notice. “I’m white, I’m Jewish, I’m an Israeli citizen and American,” she points out. “When I’m hit by tear gas there are articles, the Israeli government gets involved. When Palestinians are hit, who gives a s***?”

The root of this issue is not Emily’s presence at a demonstration or even the act of piracy against the Freedom Flotilla. The root is the siege of Gaza—now in its tenth year—that necessitated international intervention. The siege by Israel has sealed off Gaza by land, sea, and air, and destroyed the region’s economy. Combined with “wars” against the people of Gaza, contaminated water, and electricity shortages—all perpetrated by Israel—the siege is the real problem. The Emily Henoschowitz Act might cause Israel to finally pull back its brutal blockade. Emily is from Maryland, so Senators Ben Cardin (D) and Chris Van Hollen (D) should bring some accountability by sponsoring this bill.

The Tristan Anderson Act would limit U.S. aid to countries that restrict other countries’ freedom of movement by building barriers. In 2009, Tristan Anderson was in the town of Ni’lin, at one of the weekly demonstrations against the West Bank Barrier. Most of Ni’lin’s residents get their income from agriculture, and the wall was set to cut farmers off from 1/3 of their land. Israeli Border Police rarely allow such protests occur without reprisal. ISM describes the incident: “Tristan was shot in the face from about 60 meters away, crushing his skull, blinding him in one of his eyes, and sending shards of bone penetrating deep into his brain.” This occurred after the demonstration had finished.

Investigation showed that at the time of the incident, Tristan was half a mile from the wall and had not been near it for hours. Why he was shot with a tear gas canister is not clear—no one has given an explanation. Meanwhile, eight years later, “Tristan continues to require around the clock care because of cognitive impairment and physical disability. He is also paralyzed on half his body and uses a wheelchair.”

The “good” news is that Israel has since begun using a less lethal method of crowd control in Ni’lin. It is nicknamed “skunk water,” [see this video] and Reuters paints a vivid picture of the practice: “Imagine taking a chunk of rotting corpse from a stagnant sewer, placing it in a blender and spraying the filthy liquid in your face. Your gag reflex goes off the charts and you can’t escape, because the nauseating stench persists for days.”

In an official statement that denies freedom of speech and assembly to both Palestinians and visitors, the IDF announced its regret that “foreign nationals co-operate with violent rioters against the building of the security fence, whose purpose is saving the lives of Israeli citizens. [Anyone] who illegally participates in a violent demonstration takes upon himself the risk of personal harm during the dispersal of these disturbances.” The Tristan Anderson Anti-Barrier Act could give Israel the motivation to tear down that wall and so that Palestinians can enjoy the freedom that all people deserve. Tristan is from California, and his senators, Dianne Feinstein(D) and Kamala Harris (D) ought to sponsor this bill in order to encourage the deconstruction of the Wall.

Congress might also consider a Tariq Abukhdeir Act, which would limit U.S. funding of countries that imprison and/or detain minors. Tariq Abukhdeir is an American citizen who was visiting his family in Palestine for the summer. His cousin Mohammed had been burned alive in a horrific act just a day earlier by Israeli settlers.

In the summer of 2014 Tariq, then 15 years old, was severely beaten by two Israeli police, then dragged and repeatedly kicked before being arrested for allegedly throwing stones. He adamantly denied the charge, but remained in prison for several days. In spite of a video of the assault, “showing at least two Israelis methodically delivering blows to Tariq’s limp body,” only one officer was prosecuted. He was found guilty and sentenced to 45 days of community service.

This case got wide attention because Tariq is an American citizen. At least 8,000 Palestinian children have been arrested since 2000 and placed in a military detention system “notorious for the systematic ill-treatment and torture of Palestinian children.” Most are accused of throwing stones, which carries a potential maximum sentence of 10 to 20 years.

As for adults, If Americans Knew reports, “Since the Israeli occupation of Palestinian territory in 1967, more than 800,000 Palestinians have been detained under Israeli military orders in the occupied Palestinian territory. This number constitutes approximately 20 percent of the total Palestinian population in the oPt and as much as 40 percent of the total male Palestinian population.”

The United States should not tolerate this excessive incarceration–especially of minors. The Tariq Abukhdeir Act might cause Israel to think twice before imprisoning children. Bill Nelson (D) and Marco Rubio (R) of Florida, Tariq’s home state, need to lead the way by sponsoring this bill.

And finally, Congress should propose the Orwah Hammad Act, which would cut off funding to any country that encourages the practice of building of settlements inside other countries.  Orwah Hammad, an American citizen, was 14 years old in 2014 when he participated in a weekly demonstration in the town of Silwad. He was shot in the neck with a live bullet, and died that night. During his funeral, IDF soldiers fired rubber-coated steel bullets and tear gas.

Silwad residents have been fighting for their property and livelihood for 20 years, since Israel confiscated much of their farmland to build a settlement. This is an illegal act under international law.

International law hasn’t stopped Israel from building over 250 settlements all over the West Bank, with approximately 500,000 Israeli settlers. In addition to the built-up areas, Jewish-only roads and closed military zones—also illegal—give Israel control of fully fifty percent of the West Bank. The Orwah Hammad Anti-Settlement Act might cause Israel to rethink the wisdom of breaking yet another international law. Senators John N. Kennedy(R) and Bill Cassidy (R) of Orwah’s home state of Louisiana should sponsor the bill.

The stories of Rachel, Brian, Emily, Tristan, Tariq, and Orwah have been heard around the world because they are—or were—American citizens. A handful of European advocates for Palestinians have also been killed or injured, and have also made the papers. A number of Israelis have also tragically died or been hurt. But thousands of Palestinian children, women, and men have died; tens of thousands have been injured; hundreds of thousands live in poverty; millions are without hope and without help.

The Taylor Force Act would lead to more suffering for Palestinians, and more boldness on the part of Israel, as US complicity would only reinforce Israel’s current actions. Home demolitions, detention of minors, the West Bank barrier, settlements, curfews, and skunk water would all continue unchecked.

These illegal practices and collective punishment methods only make Palestinians angrier and more hopeless, resulting in an ever-escalating cycle of violence.

The Foreign Assistance Act, which “prohibits…assistance to any country which engages in a consistent pattern of gross violation of internationally recognized human rights,” sounds like it can be applied to Israel. Why are we forking over $10 million a day, $3.5 billion a year, to the Israeli government?

The answer is in the fine print: “except when extraordinary circumstances exist which necessitate continuation of such assistance or the national interest of the United States requires such assistance.” Our leaders seem to think Israel’s continued human rights abuses are in our best interest.

How is a system of oppression and illegal occupation, that births resentment and violence, good for America? Or Israel? Or anyone?

Jared Kushner Registered To Vote In New York… As A Woman

Renegade Editor’s Note: Could it be that Kushner is really a female-to-male tranny? I have long thought that this could be the case, with Jared’s sloping shoulders and narrow frame. We already had a male-to-female First “Lady” with Michelle Obama, so this really would not be too shocking.

By Dawn Luger

According to public records, the president’s son-in-law and senior adviser Jared Kushner is registered as a female voter in New York. Kushner allegedly checked the wrong box when he registered to vote in 2009.

The husband of first daughter, Ivanka Trump, Jared Kushner is president Donald Trump’s senior advisor. But he’s also registered to vote as a woman. According to The Hill, democratic opposition research group American Bridge first spotted the error, which Wired then reported first.

“Kushner can’t even fill out the most basic paperwork without screwing it up, so it’s a mystery why anyone thinks he’s somehow going to bring peace to the Middle East,” Brad Bainum, a spokesperson for the group, told Wired about the mistake. “Would anyone but the president’s son-in-law still have a West Wing job after repeated disclosure errors and a botched a security clearance form?”

This isn’t Kushner’s first problem with paperwork either.

Kushner, who has a vast portfolio of issues at the White House, has had to amend his federal security clearance forms multiple times to include meetings with foreign contacts. He toldcongressional investigators that the mistakes have been due to a “miscommunication” with his assistant. –The Hill

Prior to 2009, Kushner’s New Jersey voter registration noted his gender as “unknown.” Newsweek verified that the New York State Board of Elections has Kushner registered as a woman.

It’s not clear if this constitutes a breach of voting laws, but it is quite ironic considering the Trump administration’s claims of widespread voter fraud. Moreover, it adds to the already embarrassing fact that Kushner is registered to vote in two states—both New York and New Jersey.

However, it is entirely possible that this was simply a mistake on Kushner’s part, and he didn’t know about it, so he couldn’t rectify the problem. Either way, regardless of the reason Kushner is listed as a woman in voter records, it adds to the narrative that he’s incompetent and fails to follow proper procedures. This doesn’t exactly inspire confidence in terms of his ability to advise the president.

The jews as Crimeless Victims

When will the world cease to tolerate the special treatment of the jews: the most over-privileged, entitled, and undeserving minority? When will they realize what benefits the parasite does not benefit the host? The parasitic nature of the jews has long been recognized, but it is truly shocking how closely they resemble bipedal tapeworms or flukes. Just like their helminth counterparts irritate intestinal linings, the jews irritate the social fabric that holds together the communities they have colonized. The helminth worms generate a disgusting, protective mucus that insulates them from attack; just like the jews exude a form of intellectual mucus that prevents the healthy elements of a society from working directly against them or for their removal. The parasite tricks the host into tolerating it, just as the jews have tricked the Whites into tolerating every kind of perversion, amoral behavior, and hostile genetic alien in their midst; not in the least of which is the jew itself.

The endless unsubstantiated and alleged “hate crimes” that inexorably accompany any collection of jews are a prime illustration of the defensive measures used by the jews that follow the parasitic example. The rat-faced men will perpetrate the most unbelievable lies and frauds to convince the host that the chosenites are actually poor, helpless victims; not parasites draining the vitality, drinking the blood, and ultimately compromising their hosts’ ability to survive. Attempts to dislodge the parasitic jews are met with slimy, slippery accusations and claims of unlikely and unverifiable crimes against the “light of the world.” We’ve all heard of victimless crimes; the jews have invented themselves as crimeless victims. The actual crimes, those committed by the jews, are of course lost among their whining about victimhood and other pustulent effusions. And so they are quickly left at large to continue soiling the societies they have invaded.

All the typical hallmarks of the hebraic hoax were recently on display in Oakland: supposed graffiti on the wall of a synagogue, zero pictures to substantiate it, the tall tale of “hate” coming from a community that is one of the most brainwashed and supportive of the talmudic White genocide agenda, random references to Nazis, and lots of hand-wringing all around.

In the early hours of the first day of Rosh Hashanah, unknown vandals scrawled anti-Semitic words of hate on the walls of Temple Sinai in downtown Oakland. Rabbi Jacqueline Mates-Muchin got the call shortly after 4:45 a.m. on Sept. 21 from the temple’s security firm.”

Alleged wordcrime that cannot and will not be supported with any empirical evidence. The unbelievable fantasy tale of how the security service noticed the supposed graffiti in the darkness before dawn, and notified the rabbi before 5:00 a.m. Unsurprisingly, the rabbi was awake, and had probably just finished washing some paint off her hands at 4:45 a.m. A single, simple question will suffice to expose the unknown vandals: “Hey rabbi! Watcha doin’?”

There, low on the side of the building, were the words, “Fuck you Jewish Nazis.” “So they’re stupid as well as obnoxious,” [congregational president Sam] Schuchat told [JWeekly].”

How quickly the jew-controlled narrative collapses. By the third sentence in the article, the scope of the graffiti has already shrunk from being scrawled all over walls, to four words barely above ground level on a single wall. Just like the holohoax at Auschwitz, there may initially have been 4 million crimewords, then there were 1.5 million crimewords, then there were merely four; and the only evidence to support that meager number is the self-serving bleating of a hideous rabbinical creature. Oh, and for good measure, “Don’t forget the Nawrtzees and all that poisecution, you dirty goyim!”

Police were on the scene quickly, and are investigating the incident as a hate crime. Experts are reviewing video from surveillance cameras at the synagogue and from the surrounding neighborhood.”

In the city of Oakland, which is one of the most crime-ridden urban cesspools in the entire dysfunctional USSA, the police have an overwhelming backlog of uninvestigated and unsolved cases. However, they have the time to respond quickly to a non-crime “incident” based solely on kvetching. I wonder if the semitic surveillance footage “experts” will be able to resist the urge to use some of those (((Hollywood))) special effects to make Hitler appear as the alleged perpetrator in the video recordings.

Meanwhile Mates-Muchin came up with a plan: Cover the graffiti with butcher paper, and invite people to write “more inspiring messages,” Schuchat said.”

Instead of doing something that makes sense, like documenting the alleged graffiti with a camera, Moloch’s rabbi uses up the temple’s extensive supply of butcher paper to cover the entire side of the building.  Looks like they’ll have to use newspaper to clean up after the kapparot chicken sacrifices and ritual child murder.

I grew up in a synagogue where we had Holocaust survivors come talk to us,” [Sara Stillman] said. “They showed us their arms, they showed us their numbers. It seemed like a piece of history. To realize that history is not gone…”

Notice the tacit jewish admission in (((Stillman’s))) statement that the whole holohoax production is a charade: it seemed like a piece of history. It wasn’t a piece of history, it was just clever semitic play-acting to make it look like history. It is Protocol Number 5 reduced to practice: “[P]eople are content with a show and rarely pause to note, in the public arena, whether promises are followed by performance. Therefore we shall establish show institutions which will give eloquent proof of their benefit to progress.” The jew concludes with an Orwellian lament that could be straight from 1984, decrying the fact that the rat-faced men have not quite succeeded in getting rid of history.

The repulsive sham propaganda of the jews is intended to debilitate Whites with guilt, and make them pliable, docile victims for the talmudic plans for extinction through miscegenation and the elimination of White homelands.  We must stop letting the hebraic helminths have their uncontested, parasitic control over our education, our morality, our sense of justice, and our minds. We must tirelessly work for the benefit and advancement of our White race, and stop tolerating the hostile aliens who drain our racial vigor through perversion and moral corruption for their direct benefit. We must resist White genocide.
