Victims of YaltaVictims of Yalta: The Secret Betrayal of the Allies—1944-1947

By Nikolai Tolstoy. This book tells the sordid tale of the betrayal of millions of anti-Bolshevik Russians who fought back against the Soviet terror before and during World War II, and how they were betrayed by the Allies in what is called “Operation Keelhaul.”

After the war, literally millions of anti-communist Cossack fighters and civilians came under the control of British, French and American forces.

Tolstoy says these Russians included prisoners of war, forced laborers, collaborators, refugees and émigrés. Some were Russian POWs who had fought against the Soviets in Waffen-SS units. Still others were captured Soviet soldiers.

(Unfortunately for them, Stalin considered any Soviet soldier who surrendered a traitor and deserving of death.) And many were merely average Russians who had fled the USSR to escape the Soviet terror campaigns. . . .

But no matter the status of the person, the secret Moscow agreement of 1944, confirmed at the 1945 Yalta conference, demanded that ALL Soviet citizens in the West be forced to return to Russia.

This was a death sentence by execution or forced labor in the Gulag for the vast majority, and Churchill, FDR and the other Western Allied leaders were well aware that they would be ensuring millions of people certain death.

According to Tolstoy’s estimate, based on data from a former NKVD officer, in the end, a total of 5.5 million Russians were “repatriated” from areas formerly occupied by the Axis.

Of these, 20% received a death sentence; 20% received a 25-year labor camp sentence; about 17.5% received sentences of five to 10 years; 10% were exiled for six years or more; 15% worked as conscripts in assigned areas and were not allowed to return home; and about 17.5% were allowed to return home but remained blackballed, thus finding it difficult to survive.

Of course not all Russians went peacefully, so the Allies used either force or subterfuge to get the Cossacks and their families to agree to relocation. For instance, at Camp Peggetz near Lienz, Austria, the British guaranteed a group of thousands of Cossacks that they were attending an important British conference to determine their fate, when in fact they were being delivered into Soviet hands.

When the Cossack men figured out the plan, they refused to board the military transport trucks and fought back. The Brits truncheoned the disarmed Cossacks into unconsciousness and threw their bodies like “sacks of potatoes” onto the trucks bound for the Soviet camp, according to one witness.

Women and children thus went more willingly. “Repatriation programs” were also enacted in France, Belgium, Holland, Finland, Switzerland, Sweden and Norway. The only country known to have resisted forced repatriation of Russians was Liechtenstein.

In the end, this massive betrayal of millions of human beings remains one of the blackest stains on the West and helps explains the general distrust Russians even today have for the trustworthiness of Western politicians.

Patton: Right Man At The Wrong Time

Patton. An American general that even the Germans admired. Some say if he had been in Eisenhower’s place, Allied troops would have entered Berlin six months earlier. And may be the American army would have soon after fought the Red Army……

Patton foresaw that Soviet Russia would become a threat to America. He wanted to ally with the Germans (not Nazi) to fight the communists. He had a major ‘flaw’ in the then prevailing conditions; he was anti-Semitic.Patton died mysteriouslyAt the end of World War II, one of America’s top military leaders accurately assessed the shift in the balance of world power which that war had produced and foresaw the enormous danger of communist aggression against the West. Alone among U.S. leaders he warned that America should act immediately,while her supremacy was unchallengeable, to end that danger. Unfortunately, his warning went unheeded, and he was quickly silenced by a convenient “accident” which took his life.

Thirty-two years ago, in the terrible summer of 1945, the U.S. Army had just completed the destruction of Europe and had set up a government of military occupation amid the ruins to rule the starving Germans and deal out victors’ justice to the vanquished. General George S. Patton, commander of the U.S. Third Army, became military governor of the greater portion of the American occupation zone of Germany.

It was only in the final days of the war and during his tenure as military governor of Germany — after he had gotten to know both the Germans and America’s “gallant Soviet allies” — that Patton’s understanding of the true situation grew and his opinions changed. In his diary and in many letters to his family, friends, various military colleagues, and government officials, he expressed his new understanding and his apprehensions for the future. His diary and his letters were published in 1974 by the Houghton Mifflin Company under the title The Patton Papers.

Several months before the end of the war, General Patton had recognized the fearful danger to the West posed by the Soviet Union, and he had disagreed bitterly with the orders which he had been given to hold back his army and wait for the Red Army to occupy vast stretches of German, Czech, Rumanian, Hungarian, and Yugoslav territory, which the Americans could have easily taken instead.

Patton best American general WW2

On May 7, 1945, just before the German capitulation, Patton had a conference in Austria with U.S. Secretary of War Robert Patterson. Patton was gravely concerned over the Soviet failure to respect the demarcation lines separating the Soviet and American occupation zones. He was also alarmed by plans in Washington for the immediate partial demobilization of the U.S. Army.

Patton said to Patterson: “Let’s keep our boots polished, bayonets sharpened, and present a picture of force and strength to the Red Army. This is the only language they understand and respect.”

Patterson replied, “Oh, George, you have been so close to this thing so long, you have lost sight of the big picture.”

Patton rejoined:

“I understand the situation. Their (the Soviet) supply system is inadequate to maintain them in a serious action such as I could put to them. They have chickens in the coop and cattle on the hoof — that’s their supply system. They could probably maintain themselves in the type of fighting I could give them for five days. After that it would make no difference how many million men they have, and if you wanted Moscow I could give it to you. They lived on the land coming down. There is insufficient left for them to maintain themselves going back. Let’s not give them time to build up their supplies. If we do, then . . . we have had a victory over the Germans and disarmed them, but we have failed in the liberation of Europe; we have lost the war!”

Patton’s urgent and prophetic advice went unheeded by Patterson and the other politicians and only served to give warning about Patton’s feelings to the alien conspirators behind the scenes in New York, Washington, and Moscow.

The more he saw of the Soviets, the stronger Patton’s conviction grew that the proper course of action would be to stifle communism then and there, while the chance existed. Later in May 1945 he attended several meetings and social affairs with top Red Army officers, and he evaluated them carefully. He noted in his diary on May 14:

“I have never seen in any army at any time, including the German Imperial Army of 1912, as severe discipline as exists in the Russian army. The officers, with few exceptions, give the appearance of recently civilized Mongolian bandits.”

And Patton’s aide, General Hobart Gay, noted in his own journal for May 14: “Everything they (the Russians) did impressed one with the idea of virility and cruelty.”

Nevertheless, Patton knew that the Americans could whip the Reds then — but perhaps not later. On May 18 he noted in his diary:

“In my opinion, the American Army as it now exists could beat the Russians with the greatest of ease, because, while the Russians have good infantry, they are lacking in artillery, air, tanks, and in the knowledge of the use of the combined arms, whereas we excel in all three of these. If it should be necessary to fight the Russians, the sooner we do it the better.”

Two days later he repeated his concern when he wrote his wife: “If we have to fight them, now is the time. From now on we will get weaker and they stronger.”


SS means no more in Germany than being a Democrat in America — that is not to be quoted. I mean by that that initially the SS people were special sons of bitches, but as the war progressed they ran out of sons of bitches and then they put anybody in there. Some of the top SS men will be treated as criminals, but there is no reason for trying someone who was drafted into this outfit . . .”


“Today we received orders . . . in which we were told to give the Jews special accommodations. If for Jews, why not Catholics, Mormons, etc? . . . We are also turning over to the French several hundred thousand prisoners of war to be used as slave labor in France. It is amusing to recall that we fought the Revolution in defense of the rights of man and the Civil War to abolish slavery and have now gone back on both principles.”

“Actually, the Germans are the only decent people left in Europe. it’s a choice between them and the Russians. I prefer the Germans.”

“What we are doing is to destroy the only semi-modern state in Europe, so that Russia can swallow the whole.”


After a visit to ruined Berlin, he wrote his wife on July 21, 1945: “Berlin gave me the blues. We have destroyed what could have been a good race, and we are about to replace them with Mongolian savages. And all Europe will be communist. It’s said that for the first week after they took it (Berlin), all women who ran were shot and those who did not were raped. I could have taken it (instead of the Soviets) had I been allowed.”

“It is my present thought . . . that when I finish this job, which will be around the first of the year, I shall resign, not retire, because if I retire I will still have a gag in my mouth . . . I should not start a limited counterattack, which would be contrary to my military theories, but should wait until I can start an all- out offensive . . . .”

In his book Target Patton, Robert Wilcox believes he was.
Wilcox writes that Patton was threatening to quit the Army and denounce Supreme Allied Commander, General Dwight D Eisenhower, once his junior and close friend, who he believed had made a deal with the Soviets to stop him racing them to Berlin.  This left hundreds of thousands of German troops free to escape to kill U.S troops in the Battle of the Bulge, and let the Russians take Eastern Europe.
Wilcox says General ‘Wild Bill’ Donovan, boss of the Office of Strategic Service  –  forerunner of the CIA  –  ordered assassin Douglas Bazata to kill Patton.  The historian interviewed Bazata, who died in 1999, and was granted access to his diaries.
Wilcox cites diary entries which apparently reveal that Bazata arranged for the lorry to plough into Patton’s car, then broke his neck with a rubber-bullet gun. Bazata said that when the general began to recover, U.S. officials turned a blind eye as Russian agents poisoned him. No autopsy was performed.
Wilcox said: ‘Bazata confessed to me that he had caused Patton’s accident. ‘Patton wanted to go to war with the Russians. The administration thought he was nuts.
‘He also knew secrets of the war which would have ruined careers. I don’t think Dwight Eisenhower would ever have been elected president if Patton had lived to say the things he wanted to say.’

89-Year-Old Grandma Loses Appeal, Sentenced to Prison for Questioning the Holocaust®

Detmold, Germany – An 89-year-old German woman was sentenced to 14 months in prison for incitement of racial hatred after losing an appeal on a prior conviction.

Ursula Haverbeck, often referred to in the German press as the “Nazi Grandma,” is known for extremist views that have run afoul of German hate speech laws in the past—with courts having previously given her fines and another suspended sedition sentence, according to Fox News.

In Germany, anyone who publicly denies, endorses or plays down the extermination of Jews during Adolf Hitler’s regime can be sentenced to a maximum of five years in jail for incitement of racial hatred.

Wikipedia explains German hate speech laws as:

Volksverhetzung, in English “incitement of the masses”, “instigation of the people”, is a concept in German criminal law that refers to incitement to hatred against segments of the population and refers to calls for violent or arbitrary measures against them, including assaults against the human dignity of others by insulting, maliciously maligning, or defaming segments of the population. It is often applied to, though not limited to, trials relating to Holocaust denial in Germany.

According to a report by German state-run broadcaster, Deutsche Welle (DW):

A German court in Detmold has sentenced Holocaust denier Ursula Haverbeck to 14 months in prison, after the 89-year-old woman lost her appeal to a prior conviction on Tuesday. However, four months were shaved off her original conviction of 18 months. Prosecutors wanted the sentence upheld, Haverbeck’s lawyers were seeking exoneration.

The Detmold court had initially sentenced Haverbeck to eight months imprisonment in September 2016, after she sent a letter to the town’s mayor, Rainer Heller, claiming that Auschwitz was not a concentration camp.

Following the trial, the octogenarian handed out pamphlets to journalists, as well as the judge and prosecutor, entitled “Only the truth will set you free,” in which she once again denied the Nazi atrocities. Haverbeck was handed an additional 10-month sentence for the stunt.

In the United States, incitement of violence is criminal but “assaults against human dignity of others by insulting, malicious maligning, or defaming segments of the population” are considered an exercise of free speech, and thus protected under the First Amendment.

Essentially, German law has criminalized speech as a means of controlling political discourse—meaning the government will tell you what is acceptable to say, and who is fair game to malign, and what groups and classes are protected.

While some speech may be extreme and repulsive, the prohibition on certain ideas, even the most repugnant, being put into the public marketplace of thought is a fast track to totalitarian governmental control—essentially legitimizing the “thought police.”

According to DW:

Haverbeck and her late husband Werner Georg Haverbeck, who was an active member of the Nazi party in the run-up to and during the Second World War, founded a right-wing education center called Collegium Humanum, which has been banned since 2008. She has also written for the right-wing magazine Stimme des Reiches (Voice of the Empire), which she also used to express her views that the Holocaust never took place.

Haverbeck has been sentenced on similar charges on five other occasions but has not yet served any jail time as she appeals the cases.

In October, she was sentenced to six months in prison by a Berlin court after being found guilty of inciting racial hatred for claiming the gas chambers at Auschwitz concentration camp “were not real.”

Prior to that, in August, she was given a two-year prison sentence by a regional court in Lower Saxony, according to DW.

The 89-year-old has appealed the rulings passed down against her in each case and claims she has been merely been repeating an opinion.

The most recent appeal verdict is not final, either, as Haverbeck’s attorneys plan to take the case to the Higher Regional Court in Hamm – which will serve as the final opportunity to challenge the prison sentence.

Nice German Lady Caged for Offending Jews


ursula haverbeck


A court in Detmold on Friday sentenced Ursula Haverbeck (pictured above) to eight months in jail on charges of sedition. The presiding judge ruled out the possibility of parole and said that Haverbeck had a lack of “any kind of respect” and that she had made more offensive comments in the courtroom.

Haverbeck is expected to appeal against the sentencing. In Germany, anyone who publicly denies, endorses or plays down the extermination of Jews during Adolf Hitler’s regime can be sentenced to a maximum of five years in jail.

Haverbeck was found guilty of writing a letter to Detmold’s mayor, Rainer Heller, saying it was “clearly recognizable” that Auschwitz was nothing more than a labor camp. She wrote her message at the time when the Detmold court was trying Reinhold Hanning, a former guard who served at the Auschwitz concentration camp.

The 94-year-old was sentenced to five years in prison after the court found him guilty of being an accessory to the murder of 170,000 people, mostly Jews. Haverbeck spoke about Hanning’s trial in her letter, alleging that the witnesses at the trial were set up to prove the existence of the concentration camp.

Ursula Haverbeck is known for her right-wing extremist views. Several courts have sentenced her and her punishments include two fines and another suspended sedition sentence. She was on trial last year for saying that the Holocaust was “the biggest and longest-lasting lie in history.”

An estimated 6 million Jews were exterminated across Europe under Adolf Hitler’s dictatorship.

The Jews have a documented history of fabricating alleged “genocides” of their people, and specifically a “holocaust of 6 million.” For example, an October 31, 1919 article in The American Hebrew journal entitled “The Crucifixion of Jews Must Stop!” warned of the impending mass murder and starvation of “six million” Jews in Eastern Europe, specifically using the term “holocaust” to describe the alleged situation.

BERLIN, July 19.–Russia’s 6,000,000 Jews are facing extermination by massacre. As the famine is spreading, the counter-revolutionary movement is gaining and the Soviet’s control is waning. [ END OF FIRST PARAGRAPH ]


The September 8, 1919 edition of the New York Times ran an article entilted “Ukrainian Jews Aim To Stop Pogroms” that alleges that “6,000,000” jews in the Ukraine and Poland are “in peril”, and “have received notice through action and by word that they are going to be completely exterminated”!See PDF of the article archived on the New York Times website HERE.

Dr. Paul Nathan’s View of Russian Massacre

STARTLING reports of the condition and future of Russia’s 6,000,000 Jews were made on March 12 in Berlin to the annual meeting of the Central Jewish Relief League of Germany by Dr. Paul Nathan, a well-known Berlin publicist, who has returned from an extensive trip through Russia as the special emissary of Jewish philanthropists in England, America, and Germany, to arrange for distribution of the relief fund of $1,500,000 raised after the massacres last Autumn.

Dr. Nathan paints a horrifying picture of the plight and prospects of his coreligionists, and forecasts at any hour renewed massacres exceeding in extent and terror all that have gone before. He left St. Petersburg with the firm conviction that the Russian Government’s studied policy for the “solution” of the Jewish question is systematic and murderous extermination.

Dr. Nathan read to the meeting a circular addressed to the garrison of Odessa, calling upon the soldiers to “rise and crush the traitors who are plotting to upset the holy Government of the Czar and substitute for it a Jewish empire.”

He concluded with an appeal to the Jewish money powers of the world to arrest Russia’s career as a borrower. The financiers of the world should call a halt to Russia, not only for humanitarian reasons, but for practical reasons. Russia’s bankruptcy is an established fact, he added.”

via Eric Hunt

And why was Russia “persecuting” the jews in 1906 you might wonder? Well, the article cites the “paranoid”, “antisemitic” belief by the Russian authorities of a jewish plot/conspiracy to overthrow the government of the Russian Czar and establish a “jewish empire”. Hmmmmm. Well look what happened in 1917. Turns out this belief wasn’t so “crazy” after all.

Furthermore, the article notes that the reporter to the Central Jewish Relief League of Germany made “an appeal to the Jewish money powers of the world to arrest Russia’s career as a borrower.” The “Jewish money powers of the world” have sufficient power to wage war on a nation by preventing it from being able to borrow money? And yet we’re told it’s just another “anti-semitic canard” that the jews dominate and control the world financial/banking industy. Interesting.

Add this to the other fabricated “holocausts of 6,000,000 jews”, including:


1931 – The Montreal Gazette, December 28th, 1931, page 25: “SIX MILLION JEWS FACE
STARVATION. … FEARS CRISIS AT HAND. … six million Jews in Eastern Europe face
starvation, and even worse, during the coming winter.”

“Of these 6,000,000 Jews almost a third have already been massacred by Germans, Rumanians, and Hungarians, and the most conservative of the scorcekeepers estimate that before the war ends at least another third will have been done to death.”source

HOLOCAUST Handbooks Series, Vol. 6
Don Heddesheimer – The First Holocaust
Jewish Fund Raising Campaigns with Holocaust Claims During and After World War One
 – The First Holocaust features an amazing collection of press clippings and propaganda articles dating back to the late 19th century that make claims of the suffering and imminent extermination of European Jewry. Among such articles we find that Jews have, dozens of times before WWII, invoked the cabalistic “6,000,000″ number as the number of Jews on the verge of death and destruction during various periods of turmoil and conflict in Europe and Russia. Undoubtedly, this book exposes the deliberate fraudulence of these sinister Zionist campaigns and media blitzes — long before Hitler became Chancellor of Germany in1933 — designed to elicit public sympathy and financial support for Jewish political ambitions, such as Zionism and Communism.

The obsessive invocation of the cabalistic fable of “6,000,000 dead or dying Jews” dating back at least four decades prior to the events of WWII directly undermines and betrays the notion that 6,000,000 Jews perished in Europe between 1939-1945, as Jews have claimed. It was a lie the first time, and it is a lie today! Read moreDownload book as pdf



Most Americans have no real understanding of the operation of the international money lenders. The accounts of the Federal Reserve System have never been audited.

The Scam And How It Works

Most Americans have no real understanding of the operation of the international money lenders. The accounts of the Federal Reserve System have never been audited. It operates outside the control of Congress and manipulates the credit of the United States”― Barry M. Goldwater

It is well enough that people of the nation do not understand our banking and monetary system, for if they did, I believe there would be a revolution before tomorrow morning.”― Henry Ford

The Zionist’s/Globalist’s most valuable weapon is the banking system. In 1913 on December 23 the Federal Reserve Act (an unconstitutional act) was passed while most of the Senate was home on Christmas break and Wilson signed the bill into law.

Let me explain how the Federal Reserve works. First the name is a misnomer as there is nothing Federal about it. This is an institution in private hands, those of our old friends the Rothschilds. By printing off paper and loaning it to the country at interest they get a percentage right off the top, which we pay to them in items that have actual value, such as gold when we were on the gold standard, and now oil which our currency is anchored to. Not only do they suck out the natural resources and wealth of a nation through this scam, they also gain control of the economy, which they can manipulate however they wish by creating inflation, recessions, depressions etc. By creating these conditions in the economy they gain a secondary way to steal the wealth of a nation. While people work to buy items of value such as land, property, precious metals, etc. the banking elite can crash the economy like they did in the 2008 housing crash and buy the items people worked their entire lives to purchase back for pennies on the dollar, not to mention steal even more of our actual resources in exchange for more paper (tax money) through government bailouts for the banks and organizations that created the crisis to begin with. The employees and CEOs of these organizations got huge bonus checks while our money was used to keep the corporations and banks these people own from going bankrupt; we covered their “losses”.

This is all one big scam, folks. They did this exact same thing to Germany just before WWII. While the average German’s worth was 800 deutchmarks, the average worth of a German Jew was 10,000 deutchmarks. Many economists have written about this topic, including a number of Jews themselves. What we are seeing today is an exact repeat of what they did with an artificial bread shortage to cause the French and Russian revolutions, only with 1920’s Germany and the modern day they use the stock market for the same effect, which is to say they starve people into having nothing left to lose to start a revolution. They created the housing bubble and subsequent crash in 2008 and bought back property and assets at pennies on the dollar, then flooded the economy with money causing debt and inflation. Next they will create an artificial crash and restrict the money supply causing hyper inflation and a depression, then they will attempt another communist revolution, which they are already priming with Marxist groups funded by George Soros. When the crash happens they will likely blame Trump and the corrupt capitalist government (that they are corrupting) and either another powerful leader such as Adolf Hitler will rise or they will take the entire world under a global communist coup.

The new law will create inflation whenever the trusts want inflation. It may not do so immediately, but the trusts want a period of inflation, because all the stocks they hold have gone down… Now, if the trusts can get another period of inflation, they figure they can unload the stocks on the people at high prices during the excitement and then bring on a panic and buy them back at low prices.…The people may not know it immediately, but the day of reckoning is only a few years removed.” (Congressman Charles A. Lindbergh, referring to the Federal Reserve act, Congressman Lindbergh stated this a few years prior to the stock market crash in 1929 which ushered in the Great Depression Congressional Record, Vol. 51, p. 1446.

Is Washington the Most Corrupt Government in History? By Paul Craig Roberts

by Paul Craig Roberts

“Think about this. The bin Laden story, including 9/11, is fake from start to finish…. Where is there any evidence that the United States is a functioning democracy?” — Paul Craig Roberts

November 29, 2017.  Robert Mueller, a former director of the FBI who is working as a special prosecutor “investigating” a contrived hoax designed by the military/security complex and the DNC to destroy the Trump presidency, has yet to produce a scrap of evidence that Russiagate is anything but orchestrated fake news. As William Binney and other top experts have said, if there is evidence of Russiagate, the NSA would have it. No investigation would be necessary. So where is the evidence?

It is a revelation of how corrupt Washington is that a fake scandal is being investigated while a real scandal is not. The fake scandal is Trump’s Russiagate. The real scandal is Hillary Clinton’s uranium sale to Russia. No evidence for the former exists. Voluminous evidence for Hillary’s scandal lies in plain view.

Why are the clearly false charges against Trump being investigated and the clearly true charges against Hillary not being investigated? The answer is that Hillary with her hostility toward Russia and her denunciation of Russian President Putin as the “New Hitler” is not a threat to the budget and power of the US military/security complex, while Trump’s aim of normalizing relations with Russia would deprive the military/security complex of the “enemy” it requires to justify its massive budget and power.

Why hasn’t President Trump ordered the Justice Department to investigate Hillary? Is the answer that Trump is afraid the military/security complex will assassinate him? Why hasn’t the Justice Department undertaken the investigation on its own? Is the answer that Trump’s government is allied with his enemies?

How corrupt does Mueller have to be to agree to lead a fake investigation designed to overthrow the democratic election of the President of the United States? Why doesn’t Trump have Mueller and Comey arrested for sedition and conspiring to overthrow the president of the United States?

Why instead is Mueller expanding his investigation beyond his mandate and bringing charges against Manafort and others for decade-old under-reporting of income? Why instead is Congress harassing journalist Randy Credico for interviewing Julian Assange? How does an interview become part of the House Intelligence (sic) Committee’s investigation into “Russian active measures directed at the 2016 U.S. election?” There were no such active measures, but the uranium sale was real.

Why havent the media conglomerates that have produced presstitutes instead of journalists been broken up? Why can presstitutes lie 24/7, but a man can’t make a pass at a woman?

Once you begin asking questions, there is no end of them.

The failure of the US and European media is extreme.

The presstitutes never investigate real events. The presstitutes never question inconsistencies in official stories. They never tie together loose ends. They simply read over and over the script handed to them until the official story that controls the explanation is driven into the public’s head.

—  §  —

Consider, for example, the Obama regime’s claim to have murdered Osama bin Laden in his “compound” in Abbottabad, Pakistan, next to a Pakistani military base. The official story had to be changed several times. The Obama regime claim that Obama and top government officials had watched the raid via cameras on the SEALs’ helmets had to be abandoned. There was no reason to withhold the filmed evidence, and of course there was no such evidence, so the initial claim to have watched the killing became a “miscommunication.” The staged photo of the top government officials watching the alleged live filming was never explained.

The entire story never made any sense: Osama, unarmed and defended only by his unarmed wife, was murdered in cold blood by a SEAL. What in the world for? Why murder rather than capture the “terrorist mastermind” from whom endless information could have been gained? Why forgo the political fanfare of parading Osama bin Laden before the world as a captive of the American superpower?

Why were no photographs taken? Why was Osama’s body dumped in the ocean. In other words, why was all the evidence destroyed and nothing saved to back up the story?

Why the fake story of Osama being given a sea burial from an aircraft carrier? Why was no media interested that the ship’s crew wrote home that no such burial took place?

Why was there no presstitute interest in the fact that the SEAL unit, from which the SEALs on the alleged raid on bin Laden’s compound were drawn, was loaded against regulations in one 50-year old Vietnam era helicopter and shot down in Afghanistan, with all lives lost? Why was there no presstitute interest in the parents of the SEALs complaints about inappropriate procedures that cost their sons’ lives and about fears expressed to them by sons that something was wrong and they felt endangered?

Did the SEAL unit have to be wiped out because the members were asking one another, “who was on that raid?” “Were you on the bin Laden raid?” When in fact no one was on the raid.

Why wasn’t Congress interested?

Why was the live Pakistani TV interview with an eye witness of the alleged raid on bin Laden’s compound not reported in the US media? The witness contradicted every aspect of the official story. And this was immediately after the event. There was no time for anyone to concoct an elaborate counter-story or motive to do so.

Osama bin Laden had been dead for a decade prior to the false claim that Navy SEALs murdered him in Pakistan in May 2011. Here are the obituaries from December 2001.

Here is bin Laden’s last confirmed interview. He says he had nothing to do with 9/11. Why would a terrorist leader who succeed in humiliating “the world’s only superpower” fail to boost his movement by claiming credit?

“I  DIDN’T  DO  IT.”

Think about this. The bin Laden story, including 9/11, is fake from start to finish, but it is inscribed into encyclopedias, history books, and the public’s consciousness.

And this is just one example of the institutionalized mass lies concocted by Washington and the presstitutes and turned into truth. Washington’s self-serving control over explanations has removed Americans from reality and made them slaves to fake news.

So, how does democracy function when voters have no reliable information and, instead, are led into the agendas of the rulers by orchestrated events and fake news?

Where is there any evidence that the United States is a functioning democracy?

Trump on Lauer firing: ‘When will the top executives at NBC & Comcast be fired?’


President Donald Trump marked the firing of “Today” show anchor Matt Lauer on Wednesday by accusing NBC, its parent company, and their executives of “putting out so much fake news.”

Lauer’s dismissal was announced Wednesday in a memo to NBC News from its chairman, Andrew Lack, who said the longtime “Today” show anchor was fired over allegations of “inappropriate sexual behavior.” Trump, in a post to Twitter, suggested that Lack and other NBC executives should be similarly let go.

“Wow, Matt Lauer was just fired from NBC for ‘inappropriate sexual behavior in the workplace,’” Trump wrote online. “But when will the top executives at NBC & Comcast be fired for putting out so much Fake News. Check out Andy Lack’s past!”

It was not immediately clear what from Lack’s past Trump was referring to.

Trump also later used Lauer’s firing to criticize MSNBC’s president Phil Griffin and one of the cable network’s stars, Joe Scarborough.

“So now that Matt Lauer is gone when will the Fake News practitioners at NBC be terminating the contract of Phil Griffin? And will they terminate low ratings Joe Scarborough based on the “unsolved mystery” that took place in Florida years ago? Investigate!”

The “unsolved mystery” appears to be a reference to a 28-year-old staffer who died in 2001 while working for Scarborough, who was a congressman at the time. According to news reports, Lori Klausutis died when she hit her head after experiencing a heart arrhythmia, according to a Miami Herald story citing a report from a medical examiner.

Scarborough, who Trump took swipes at on Twitter Monday over his show’s ratings, responded to the president’s tweets by suggesting he is “not well.”

“Looks like I picked a good day to stop responding to Trump’s bizarre tweets. He is not well,” Scarborough wrote on Twitter Wednesday.

Scarborough’s brother, George Scarborough, accused Trump of “crossing the line” by spreading “#FakeNews.”

“I need to see a public apology to my brother Joe or else he has lost my support for good … which is saying a ton given all the support I’ve shown him in past 2 years,” George Scarborough tweeted. The post was shared by Joe Scarborough’s “Morning Joe” co-host, Mika Brzezinski.

While the president was eager to pile onto Lauer and NBC News, he is no stranger to allegations of sexual misconduct. At least 16 women have accused Trump of some form of sexual misconduct, allegations that the president has denied.

He also bragged on the now-infamous “Access Hollywood” recording, made in 2005, about how his celebrity status allowed him to sexually assault women with impunity. Trump apologized for the remark, which he said was “locker room talk” that he had never actually carried out.

US Bows to Israeli/Saudi Alliance in Blaming Iran


Exclusive: Contrary to common belief, Israel supported Iran’s Islamic Republic for more than a decade in the 1980s before shifting its favors to Saudi Arabia in the 1990s and making sure the U.S. followed suit, recalls Ted Snider.

By Ted Snider

At first, American officials couldn’t believe it. In 1993, the Israelis began pressuring the Clinton administration to view Iran as the greatest global threat. Only a short time earlier, in the 1980s, Israel had been cooperating with the Iranians militarily and selling them weapons to fight Iraq in the Iran-Iraq War.

Back then, the Israelis were Iran’s best lobbyists in Washington, pushing the Reagan administration to talk to Iran, to sell arms to Iran, and even to ignore Iran’s tough talk on Israel. In that process, Israel was aided by a group of staunchly pro-Israeli officials within the Reagan administration whom we now know as the neoconservatives.

In 1981, just months after Iran had held 52 American diplomatic personnel hostage for 444 days, senior State Department officials Robert McFarlane and Paul Wolfowitz were advocating on behalf of the Israeli desire to sell Iran weapons. That initiative, which was continued by McFarlane when he became President Reagan’s National Security Advisor, ultimately led to the Iran-Contra scandal of 1986 when Reagan’s secret approval of U.S. arms shipments to Iran became public.

Yet, even in the wake of that scandal and the end of the Iran-Iraq War in 1988, the neoconservatives who remained influential under Reagan’s successor, President George H.W. Bush, pressed ahead with the goal of getting the U.S. to warm its relations with Iran. Iraq’s defeat at the hands of the U.S. military and its allies in the Persian Gulf War of 1990-91 further reduced the Arab threat to Israel’s security and encouraged more thinking about a possible U.S.-Iranian détente.

The Bush-I administration’s 1991 “National Security Strategy of the United States” said the U.S. was open to “an improved relationship with Iran,” a country that a 1991 National Intelligence Estimate said was “turning away from revolutionary excesses . . . toward more conventional behavior.”

However, in 1993, with the Clinton administration in power, the Israelis changed their tune, urging the U.S. government to find Iran lurking behind every terrorist attack, every conflict and every threat.

There appear to have been several factors leading to this Israeli switch – from the fact that the Cold War was over and thus Arab states that had relied on Soviet weaponry were weakened; that Iran-backed Hezbollah was challenging Israel’s military occupation of southern Lebanon; and that Israel could no longer profit from Iran’s desperate need for weapons (with the war with Iraq over and Iran’s treasury depleted) while the Arab oil states offered a more lucrative opportunity for both geopolitical and financial gain.

Hooked on the Money

Israeli leadership had found the billions of dollars from arms sales to Iran useful in maintaining Israel’s large military/intelligence infrastructure as well as Israel’s development of Jewish settlements inside Palestinian territories on the West Bank. With that cash source gone, Israel began recalculating its longstanding Periphery Strategy, which had called for countering Arab pressure from close-in states by cultivating relations with non-Arab regional powers on the periphery, such as Iran and Turkey.

There were also two other seismic events that altered the geopolitical landscape. The Cold War was over and Saddam Hussein’s Iraq had been humiliated in the Persian Gulf War. While the Israelis saw both events as positive, there were unintended consequences. The end of the Cold War meant the exit of the Soviet Union from the Middle East: that left Israel’s traditional Arab enemies even more enfeebled and the U.S. government less worried about losing influence in the oil-rich region. Iran also emerged as relatively stronger than Iraq due to Iraq’s failed invasion of Iran and its catastrophic defeat after its invasion of Kuwait.

Israel’s 1992 elections also brought Yitzhak Rabin, Shimon Peres and the Labor Party to power, raising the possibility of finally reaching a peace accord with the Palestinians and thus the possibility of more normalized relations with the Arab world. In turn, that raised the potential for more lucrative arrangements with oil-rich sheikdoms by, in effect, renting out the Israel Lobby to the Sunni-ruled Gulf states so they could push their historic conflict with the Shiites whose power base was Iran.

“There was a feeling in Israel that because of the end of the Cold War, relations with the U.S. were cooling and we needed some new glue for the alliance,” Efraim Inbar of the Begin-Sadat Center told Trita Parsi. “And the new glue was radical Islam.”

But it was a very selective kind of radical Islam: not the kind Saudi Arabia was financing and exporting through Wahhabi fundamentalism and violent jihadists like those in Al Qaeda, but Iran’s radical Shiite Islam. Selling Iran as the number one global terror threat gave birth to a new Middle East enemy that replaced the Soviet Union and reinflated Israel’s value to the U.S. in the region. “Iran,” Inbar went on to explain, “was radical Islam.”

A New Alliance

For the first time, an alliance between Israel, Saudi Arabia and the United States became possible with Iran as the designated enemy. The Israeli-Saudi relationship has evolved mostly in secret over the past couple of decades but has popped into view in recent years as Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his inner circle have emphasized the common interests – especially animosity toward Iran – that they share with Saudi Arabia.

Netanyahu has recently referred to this Israeli-Saudi alliance when he said that Iran was driving Israel into cooperative arrangements with what he called “the modern Sunni states.” He referred to “a new alliance between Israel and Islamic states. … The good news is that the other guys are getting together with Israel as never before. It is something that I would have never expected in my lifetime.”

Nine months ago, Netanyahu delivered the same message when he said “for the first time in my lifetime, and for the first time in the life of my country, Arab countries in the region do not see Israel as an enemy, but, increasingly, as an ally.”

Though the Israeli-Saudi relationship is rarely spoken of out loud, Israeli Energy Minister Yuval Steinitz admitted recently that Israel “has ties that are . . . partly covert with many Muslim and Arab countries.” Saudi Arabia was the only one he specifically named. According to Reuters, he said those ties are fueled by “common concerns over Iran.”

But there are other foundations for this relationship. For years, Saudi Arabia sought to buy influence in Washington’s policy circles regarding the Middle East but was largely unsuccessful because Israel had cornered that market and Israel’s influential American supporters demonized lobbyists, academics and others who took Saudi money. Eventually, it became clear to Saudi Arabia that it made more sense to rent out Israel’s sophisticated lobbying apparatus rather than to fight it.

Investigative journalist Robert Parry reported that Saudi money helped seal this Israel-Saudi alliance, with the Saudis giving Israel billions of dollars and Israel reciprocating by giving Saudi Arabia added influence in Washington.

But Official Washington was surprised in the 1990s when Israel’s turnabout began — and Iran went from being a misunderstood nation tilting toward moderation to the world’s leading sponsor of terrorism. Despite some bewilderment, U.S. policymakers soon readjusted their rhetoric as the legendary Israeli influence operations carried the day. Shiite Iran became the new terror threat, even after the 9/11 attacks that were organized by Al Qaeda, a Sunni fundamentalist group associated with Saudi Arabia.

The Islamic State

The gap between the facts on the ground – the recognition that Al Qaeda and Islamic State remain the real chief terror threats from radical Islam – and the propaganda of principally blaming Iran for terrorism has led to a quandary for U.S./Israeli propagandists. They want to focus Americans’ fury on Iran and its allies, Syria and Hezbollah, but it is Saudi-and-Gulf-connected terror groups, such as Al Qaeda and Islamic State, that were chopping off heads of innocents and sponsoring terrorist attacks in the U.S. and Europe.

That disconnected reality explains why America’s response to the emergence of the Islamic State can best be characterized as confused and bizarre. Though the Obama administration claimed it was taken by surprise by the Islamic State’s emergence in Iraq and Syria, it really wasn’t. Rather, policymakers had sought to persuade the American public on the need for a “regime change” conflict in Syria, an Iranian ally. This strategy went back years.

A WikiLeaks-released cable dated Dec. 13, 2006, and written by the charge d’affaires of the U.S. embassy in Damascus to the Secretary of State recommended that the U.S. “coordinate more closely with” Egypt and Saudi Arabia in a policy to weaken President Bashar al-Assad’s government in Syria and “to play on Sunni fears of Iranian influence.” The cable also recognized that Islamist extremists were “certainly a long-term threat” to the Syrian government.

Over the years, there was little change in this inconvenient truth that jihadists were playing a crucial role in achieving these geopolitical goals.  For instance, in a December 2009 cable, then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton stated that “Saudi Arabia remains a critical financial support base for al-Qaeda, the Taliban . . . and other terrorist groups.”

By Aug. 12, 2012, the U.S. government knew explicitly that Islamic extremists were the engine in the Syrian insurgency. A classified Defense Intelligence Agency Information Intelligence Report unambiguously declares that “The salafist [sic], the Muslim Brotherhood, and AQI [al-Qaeda in Iraq, later ISIS and the Islamic State] are the major forces driving the insurgency in Syria.”

Section 8.C. of the report astonishingly predicts that “If the situation unravels there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared salafist principality in eastern Syria.” Section 8.D.1. of the report goes on specifically to say that “ISI could also declare an Islamic State through its union with other terrorist organizations in Iraq and Syria.”

So, the U.S. government knew that the Islamic extremists drove the Syrian insurgency that Washington and its regional allies were supporting. U.S. intelligence analysts also had a surprisingly good idea what the possible outcome of that support was.

Yet, to advance the regional goals of the Israeli-Saudi tandem – i.e., the overthrow of the Syrian government because of its ties to Iran – the U.S. government was, in effect, supporting the very terrorists the war on terror was meant to eradicate.

Selling Al Qaeda

At times, senior Israeli officials made clear their preferences for Sunni extremists over more moderate Arabs associated with Shiite-ruled Iran. For instance, in September 2013, then-Israeli Ambassador to the United States Michael Oren told the Jerusalem Post that Israel favored the Sunni extremists over Syria’s largely secular President Bashar al-Assad.

Michael Oren, Israel’s former ambassador to the United States.

“The greatest danger to Israel is by the strategic arc that extends from Tehran, to Damascus to Beirut. And we saw the Assad regime as the keystone in that arc,” Oren said in the interview. “We always wanted Bashar Assad to go, we always preferred the bad guys who weren’t backed by Iran to the bad guys who were backed by Iran.” He said this was the case even if the “bad guys” were affiliated with Al Qaeda.

Oren reiterated this position in June 2014 at an Aspen Institute conference. Speaking as a former ambassador, Oren said Israel would even prefer a victory by the Islamic State, which was then massacring captured Iraqi soldiers and beheading Westerners, than the continuation of the Iranian-backed Assad in Syria.

“From Israel’s perspective, if there’s got to be an evil that’s got to prevail, let the Sunni evil prevail,” said Oren, who is now a member of the Knesset and part of Netanyahu’s government.

Other senior Israelis have expressed similar sentiments. Sima Shine, who is in charge of Iran for Israel’s Ministry of Strategic Affairs, urged Assad’s removal even if that might turn Syria over to extremists. “The ‘devil we know’ is worse than the devil we don’t,” she said in June 2013. “If Bashar remains in power, that would be a huge achievement for Iran.”

So, in 2014, when Islamic State jihadists advanced through Syria and Iraq and knocked on the door of Lebanon, their success should not have come as a surprise to President Obama and other U.S. policymakers. Today’s Iraq, Syria and Lebanon have in common that they are Iran’s three principal allies in the region.

In other words, the Islamic State’s interests largely corresponded to those of Israel, Saudi Arabia and the U.S.: isolating and weakening Iran. Only the Islamic State’s shocking excesses of videotaped beheadings of Americans and other captives – as well as its military successes inside Iraq – forced President Obama’s hand in committing U.S. forces to stop the Islamic State onslaught.

Obsessed with Assad

Still, America has long been bent on removing Assad from Syria. The coincidence of Islamic State and American interests in this regard is revealed in section 8.C of the DIA report: “there is the possibility of establishing a declared or undeclared salafist principality in eastern Syria (Hasaka and Der Zor), and this is exactly what the supporting powers to the opposition want, in order to isolate the Syrian regime, which is considered the strategic depth of the Shia expansion (Iraq and Iran).”

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad.

So, the Islamic State’s advance into this region was consistent with American (and more to the point, Israeli and Saudi) interests because these Sunni extremists would block the supply lines from Iran to Lebanon’s Hezbollah. Thus, initially at least, the U.S. government acquiesced to the Islamic State and Al Qaeda’s Nusra Front taking the lead in damaging or destroying Iran’s allies in Syria.

And Iran suspected as much. According to Iran expert Trita Parsi, the Iranians believed that the initial relaxed approach by the U.S. government toward the Islamic State and Al Qaeda’s Nusra Front was because those militants were the point of the spear against pro-Iranian Shiite influences in not only Syria but Iraq and Lebanon as well.

So, the Saudi government provided the “clandestine financial and logistic support to Isis and other radical groups in the region,” according to a leaked Hillary Clinton email on Sept. 17, 2014.

Less than a month later, on Oct. 2, 2014, Vice President Biden told a seminar at Harvard’s Kennedy School that “the Saudis, the emirates … poured hundreds of millions of dollars and tens of thousands of tons of military weapons into anyone who would fight against Assad except that the people who were being supplied were Al Nusra and Al Qaeda and the extremist elements of jihadis.”

The DIA report also named the Gulf States as among the “supporting powers” of the Syrian opposition. And at a May 2015 meeting between President Obama and the Princes of the Gulf Cooperation Council, according to David Ignatius of the Washington Post, “Obama and other US officials urged Gulf leaders who are funding the opposition to keep control of their clients, so that a post-Assad regime isn’t controlled by extremists from the Islamic State or al-Qaeda.”

However, with the Israel lobby redirecting Official Washington’s ire toward Iran, more political space was created for these Saudi-connected terror groups to carry out the regime change missions in Syria and elsewhere.

And Israel didn’t just prefer a victory in Syria by the extremists of Al Qaeda and the Islamic State. United Nations observers in the Golan Heights reported witnessing cooperation between Israel and Syrian rebels, and Israel has frequently bombed Syrian targets (and here and here).

Netanyahu also reported that Israel has hit Hezbollah forces fighting against the Islamic State and Al Qaeda in Syria dozens of times. Recently, it has been revealed that Israel also provided funding, food and fuel to Syrian rebels fighting Assad.

Lebanon’s Crisis

But the Syrian “regime change” strategy didn’t work. With help from Iran and Hezbollah and Russia’s intervention in 2015, Assad and his army not only survived but routed the Islamic State, Al Qaeda’s Nusra and other jihadists from major urban strongholds. Instead of Iran losing an ally in the region, Iran emerged with a stronger alliance and greater influence.

This setback, however, has not changed the Israeli-Saudi priorities; it has only made them more intense. As the outcome in Syria became more apparent, the anti-Iran gun sight pivoted to Lebanon. The recent confusing events in Lebanon, like the earlier ones in Syria, are best made sense of by looking through the gun barrel that is targeted on Iran.

On Nov. 4, after being summoned to Saudi Arabia, Lebanese Prime Minister Saad al-Hariri unexpectedly and mysteriously resigned. Hariri’s resignation came just one day after a meeting in Beirut with Ali Akbar Velayati, a senior foreign policy advisor to Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei, that was reportedly very positive. Velayati praised Hariri and reaffirmed Iran’s support for his coalition government.

Yet, a day later, speaking from Saudi Arabia, Hariri claimed his resignation was catalyzed by fear of an Iranian-Hezbollah assassination. But the Lebanese army said “it had not uncovered any plans for assassinations in Lebanon.” Neither had the army. So, why resign?

The clue may be provided by Saudi State Minister for Gulf Affairs, Thamer al-Sabhan, who expressed Saudi Arabia’s desire for “toppling Hizbullah.” He promised that “The coming developments will definitely be astonishing.” He said the desire was not just his own, and that people “will see what will happen in the coming days.”

The Saudis said Hariri resigned because Hezbollah had “hijacked” his coalition government. Al-Sabhan called Hezbollah “the Party of Satan.”

Hassan Nasrallah, the head of Hezbollah, said that the resignation was “imposed on Prime Minister Hariri” by the Saudis. Nasrallah said Hezbollah did not want Hariri to resign, having been a part of Hariri’s coalition government for almost a year. Lebanese President, Michel Aoun, seemed to share Nasrallah’s suspicion, insisting that he would not accept Hariri’s resignation until Hariri returned to Lebanon from Saudi Arabia because his “resignation must be voluntary.”

In Lebanon, there was the suspicion that Hariri was held under house arrest. On Nov. 10, President Aoun told a meeting of foreign ambassadors that Hariri had been “kidnapped.”

Now, having finally returned to Lebanon after a French intervention brought him to Paris, Hariri met with President Aoun who asked him “to temporarily suspend submitting [his resignation] and to put it on hold ahead of further consultations on the reasons for it.” Hariri agreed.

Israel seems to have applauded Saudi Arabia’s Lebanese action and reaffirmed the Iranian motivation behind it. Prime Minister Netanyahu said that “The resignation of Lebanese Prime Minister Hariri and his statements are a wake-up call for the international community to act against Iranian aggression.”

Netanyahu also made a rare public acknowledgement of the Israeli-Saudi alliance when he said that Iran was driving Israel into cooperative arrangements with what he called “the modern Sunni states,” referring to “a new alliance between Israel and Islamic states.” According to reporting by Israel’s Channel 10, a leaked classified cable from the Israeli foreign ministry to Israeli ambassadors reveals that Israel ordered them to support Saudi Arabia’s efforts and to rally support for Hariri’s resignation.

Iran has also suggested that President Trump and the United States approve of this Lebanese intervention. The resignation of the Lebanese Prime Minister came days after Trump’s son-in-law Jared Kushner visited Saudi Arabia on a trip that was not made known publicly.

Yemen’s Tragedy

While this new alliance took aim at Iran by targeting Assad in Syria and Hezbollah in Lebanon, it also has targeted a Shiite spin-off sect, the Houthis in Yemen. Since 2015, the Saudis have been bombing and blockading Yemen, the Middle East’s poorest country. But on Nov. 5, Saudi Arabia expressed outrage after intercepting a ballistic missile fired by Houthi forces in Yemen toward Riyadh. The Saudis accused Iran of providing the missile and ordering the attack – and called this an “act of war” by Iran and Hezbollah.

General Mohammad Ali Jafari, the commander of the Iranian Revolutionary Guards, called the charge against Iran “baseless,” as did Iran’s ambassador to the United Nations, Gholamali Khoshroo. Even Saudi officials were calling the missile a Yemeni Burqan 2H missile when it was intercepted. The Houthis said they fired the missile in response to the long-running Saudi bombardment that included a recent attack that killed 26 people.

Despite these denials of Iranian responsibility and the context of Saudi Arabia’s air war, U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations. Nikki Haley called on the U.N. to hold Iran accountable for violating U.N. Security Council resolutions by supplying the missile. She called on the U.N. to take “necessary action” against Iran.

The U.S. government has consistently rationalized the Saudi bombardment of Yemen as necessary to thwart Iranian influence in the Persian Gulf. U.S. accusations about Iran allegedly supplying the Houthis with weapons hang precariously on an “assessment” that Iran has used fishing boats to smuggle weapons into Yemen.

However, according to investigative journalist Gareth Porter, the U.S. was never able to produce any evidence for the link between Iran and the Houthis because the boats were stateless, and their destination was Somalia, not Yemen. An earlier ship was, indeed, Iranian but was not really carrying any weapons.

The Houthis also are allied with former President Ali Abdullah Saleh who maintains control over the army, so the Houthis could get all the weapons they need from local arms supplies, including military bases stocked with American-made weapons.

And just as Iran does not substantially arm the Houthis, so it does not control them. In fact, they have proven to be beyond Tehran’s efforts to influence them. In 2014, the Iranians specifically discouraged the Houthis from capturing the Yemeni capital, Sanaa. However, the Houthis captured the city anyway, demonstrating Iran’s lack of control.

A U.S. intelligence official told The Huffington Post that “It is wrong to think of the Houthis as a proxy force for Iran.” Yemen specialist Gabriele vom Bruck has called Iran’s influence over the Houthis “trivial.” She said the Houthis want to be independent, not controlled by Iran: “I don’t think the Iranians have influence in their decision-making.” To the extent that Iran is involved in Yemen at all, that involvement came as a result of the devastating Saudi air war.

Dating back to the Obama administration, the U.S. government has made the Saudi aerial bombardment of Yemen possibleThe U.S. refuels the Saudi bombers in flight, supplies the bombs and provides targeting intelligence.

This U.S. complicity in what is widely regarded as a humanitarian catastrophe has continued into the Trump administration. A White House statement as recently as Nov. 24 reaffirmed U.S. support for Saudi Arabia, declaring: “We remain committed to supporting Saudi Arabia and all our Gulf partners against the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps’ aggression and blatant violations of international law. Backed by the Iranian Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, the Houthi rebels have used destabilizing missile systems to target Saudi Arabia.”

The statement again reveals, not only the alliance with Saudi Arabia and the silence about its devastating bombing attacks, but the strategy of turning Yemen’s human tragedy into another excuse to blame Iran. The Iranian foreign ministry said the White House statement “clearly and without question proves America’s participation and responsibility in the atrocities committed by Saudi Arabia in Yemen”.

Bahrain & Qatar

Washington’s Saudi-Israeli-supplied blinders on the Middle East carry over to other regional conflicts, too. For instance, in 2011, protesters in Bahrain demanded a true constitutional monarchy, the resignation of the Prime Minister, greater civil liberties and a real elected parliament. Though Bahrain has a parliament, it is actually governed by the U.S.-backed dictator, King Hamad ibn Isa Al Khalifa, whose family has ruled Bahrain for over 200 years. The prime minister, the king’s uncle, is the longest reigning prime minister in the world, in power now for nearly 40 years.

Bahrain’s population is about 70 percent Shiite, though the ruling family, the government, the army and the police are all Sunni. The Shia have long been victims of discrimination. And the government maintains its control through repression, including the use of torture. Bahrain is located between Sunni Saudi Arabia and Shiite Iran and is seen by the U.S. as a strategically located check on Iranian influence and power.

Though the Obama administration touted itself as a big proponent of the “Arab Spring” and its promised democratization, Washington sided with the Bahraini dictators against the majority of the Bahraini people.

Days after mass arrests and beatings of protesters, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, Admiral Mike Mullen, went through with his planned visit to Bahrain where he reaffirmed the U.S.’s strong commitment to its military relationship with Bahrain and called Bahrain’s response to the protests “very measured.” Mullen stressed the U.S.-Bahrain “partnership” and “friendship.”

On the same day, Secretary of Defense Robert Gates also gave full support to the Khalifa dictatorship. The U.S. continued to support the regime and to call for “stability” and “reform”: two words that are code for standing by dictatorships.

To help put down the protests in Bahrain, 1,000 Saudi troops invaded Bahrain across a causeway that connects the countries. The Obama administration remained silent.

Qatar also has suffered under the new Saudi-Israeli alliance because Qatar has pursued a more independent foreign policy than Saudi Arabia likes and now faces a Saudi-led siege as a consequence. Former British diplomat Alastair Crooke explained that Qatar’s principal sin is seeking peaceful coexistence with Iran.

When Washington asked Saudi Arabia to make reasonable proposals for the termination of the siege, Saudi Arabia included the demand that Qatar break all ties with Iran.

In other words, many of the most important events of the past several years are best explained as attempts to weaken Iran by weakening its proxies or allies or by setting up situations that appear to implicate Iran to justify hostility toward Iran.

A problem, however, has been that the major terrorist groups that have infuriated the American public are not Iranian-linked Shiites but rather Saudi-connected fundamentalist Sunnis. Still, the claim that “Iran is the chief sponsor of terrorism” has become a rote and routine refrain from both Republicans and Democrats – as well as the U.S. mainstream media.

Much as Russia now gets blamed for every negative turn in Western democracies, Iran is the all-purpose villain whenever anything goes wrong in the Middle East. Yet, to understand these conflicts and crises, it is best to view them through the perspective of the hostility that the Saudi-Israeli alliance directs toward Iran and the acquiescence of U.S. governments, regardless of which party is in power.

Kike Nathan Guttman has no problem though with the Union of Synagogue and State, hence the giant 40 ft satanic menorah that is erected up in front of the white-house lawn every December. And Rabbi Moline could care less about the US constitution. He is really referring to his Talmud, the constitution of the Jews which has usurped our American constitutional law.

The Jews hate the Moore because he fought against removing the Ten Commandments from the courthouse and because Moore strongly opposes pro-queer lawspro-abortion laws, mass immigration and anti-gun laws, all which the Jews actively promote and lobby for to further their White Christian Genocide agenda .

The Jews’ media covered for Clinton, did all they could to protect Clinton from his very serious charges on sex crimes. But the Jews’ media is now doing all they can to destroy Roy Moore for his far less serious allegations.

The Jews media attacks on Roy Moore have nothing to do with justice for women and everything to do with preventing a sincere Christian from being elected. It’s all about the Jewish destruction of Christianity and nothing else. Jews don’t want REAL Christians like Judge Roy Moore in power, in political office. Why ? Because Jews, in order to attain and maintain their power, view Christianity, with its attendant moral influence, as a threat. For profligacy and perversion of sexual mores, places the Gentiles under the Jews’ dominion. More reasons can be read here

Operating in the realm of the press and mass media, Jews present Christianity in a bad light. This works to their benefit. For Christianity confers strength and moral fiber to the Gentile population, which would be a formidable force in opposing the Jewish quest for control.

FoxJews has jumped on the Jews media bandwagon to destroy Moore. Fox guarding the henhouse news occasionally shows their true colors like with this. FoxNews pretends to be pro Christian while they broadcast their subtle poison by helping the rest of the Jews’ media poison the election for Roy Moore.

The worst accusations to come out against Roy Moore so far is that he touched a woman over her clothing. But of course the Jews’ media reports it as sexual assault trying to make it seem like something Bill Clinton did.

If Moore was accused by somebody besides Jews’ media stooges, it might be something to take serious. But the media has a wicked history of protecting evil doers like Clinton while smearing squeaky clean Chrisitians like Michele Bachman.

Whether Roy Moore even saw or knew the so-called victim 40 years ago is anybody’s guess. The mass media attacks on Moore imply that he really is a Christian. Otherwise the Jews media wouldn’t attack Moore so viciously.

It goes without saying that the Jews media did all they could to limit the damage to Slick Willie in the rape interview with JB. Below is a watered down Jewtube 9 minutes of NBC’s Lisa Meyers interviewing Juanita Broaddrick about Bill Clinton raping her:

end note ~ Always remember…anybody getting bad press or coverage in the (((media))) is a enemy of the jews and an ally of the goyim, whether that person knows it or not. Support Roy Moore now  !

Image result for smoloko goebbels



~ note – Yes ! No wonder the kikes and their judenpresse are going after Moore so hard….He’s a true Christian who knows Judaism (and Islam) is a false satanic religion and will not tolerate Jewish tyranny against Christians !


Judge Moore was sued by the ACLU for displaying the Ten Commandments in his courtroom foyer. He has been stripped of his judgeship and now they are trying to strip his right to practice law in Alabama. The judge’s poem sums it up quite well.

By Judge Roy Moore

America the Beautiful, or so you used to be.
Land of the Pilgrims’ pride; I’m glad they’ll never see.
Babies piled in dumpsters, Abortion on demand,
Oh, sweet land of liberty; your house is on the sand.
Our children wander aimlessly poisoned by cocaine,
Choosing to indulge their lusts, when God has said abstain.
From sea to shining sea, our Nation turns away
From the teaching of God’s love and a need to always pray.
We’ve kept God in our temples, how callous we have grown.
When earth is but His footstool, and Heaven is His throne.
We’ve voted in a government that’s rotting at the core,
Appointing Godless Judges who throw reason out the door,
Too soft to place a killer in a well deserved tomb,
But brave enough to kill a baby before he leaves the womb.
You think that God’s not angry, that our land’s a moral slum?
How much longer will He wait before His judgment comes?
How are we to face our God, from Whom we cannot hide?
What then is left for us to do, but stem this evil tide?
If we who are His children, will humbly turn and pray;
Seek His holy face and mend our evil way:
Then God will hear from Heaven and forgive us of our sins,
He’ll heal our sickly land and those who live within.
But, America the Beautiful, if you don’t – then you will see,
A sad but Holy God withdraw His hand from Thee.
~Judge Roy Moore

The Ultimate Weapon of Mass Destruction: “Owning the Weather” for Military Use

In-depth Report: 

Author’s Introductory Note

Environmental modification techniques (ENMOD) for military use constitute, in the present context of global warfare, the ultimate weapon of mass destruction.

Rarely acknowledged in the debate on global climate change, the world’s weather can now be modified as part of a new generation of sophisticated electromagnetic weapons. Both the US and Russia have developed capabilities to manipulate the climate for military use.

Environmental modification techniques have been applied by the US military for more than half a century. US mathematician John von Neumann, in liaison with the US Department of Defense, started his research on weather modification in the late 1940s at the height of the Cold War and foresaw ‘forms of climatic warfare as yet unimagined’. During the Vietnam war, cloud-seeding techniques were used, starting in 1967 under Project Popeye, the objective of which was to prolong the monsoon season and block enemy supply routes along the Ho Chi Minh Trail.

The US military has developed advanced capabilities that enable it selectively to alter weather patterns. The technology, which was initially developed in the 1990s under the High-frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP), was an appendage of the Strategic Defense Initiative – ‘Star Wars’. From a military standpoint, HAARP  –which was officially abolished in 2014– is  a weapon of mass destruction, operating from the outer atmosphere and capable of destabilising agricultural and ecological systems around the world.

Officially, the HAARP program has been closed down at its location in Alaska. The technology of weather modification shrouded in secrecy, nonetheless prevails.

Weather-modification, according to the US Air Force document AF 2025 Final Report,  offers the war fighter a wide range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary”, capabilities, it says, extend to the triggering of floods, hurricanes, droughts and earthquakes:

‘Weather modification will become a part of domestic and international security and could be done unilaterally… It could have offensive and defensive applications and even be used for deterrence purposes. The ability to generate precipitation, fog and storms on earth or to modify space weather… and the production of artificial weather all are a part of an integrated set of [military] technologies.”

In 1977, an international Convention was ratified by the UN General Assembly which banned ‘military or other hostile use of environmental modification techniques having widespread, long-lasting or severe effects.’  According to the Convention on the Prohibition of Military or Any Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques:

The term “environmental modification techniques” refers to any technique for changing – through the deliberate manipulation of natural processes – the dynamics, composition or structure of the Earth, including its biota, lithosphere, hydrosphere and atmosphere, or of outer space. (Convention on the Prohibition of Military or Any Other Hostile Use of Environmental Modification Techniques, United Nations, Geneva: 18 May 1977)

While the substance of the 1977 Convention was reasserted in the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC) signed at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio, debate on weather modification for military use has become a scientific taboo.

Military analysts and scientists are mute on the subject. Meteorologists are not investigating the matter and environmentalists are largely focussing on greenhouse gas emissions under the Kyoto Protocol. The possibility of climatic or environmental manipulations as part of a military and intelligence agenda, while tacitly acknowledged, is not part of the broader debate on climate change under UN auspices.

While discussion of  the post Cold War military applications of  weather warfare is a taboo, the US Air Force has nonetheless acknowledged the strategic importance of ENMOD techniques in the modern battlefield of non-conventional warfare and intel opsincluding the conduct, without the enemy’s knowledge, of “covert” weather modification operations.

While the US Force acknowledges that ENMOD weapons are part of military arsenal, there is no formal proof or evidence that ENMOD techniques have been used by US military against a foreign country or enemy of  the US.  

At this juncture in our history, US-NATO forces are deployed worldwide.

The US and its allies are waging war on Syria and Iraq and targeting Iran and North Korea. They are also threatening Russia and China.

The Pentagon has formulated the contours of a global military agenda, a “long war”, a war without borders.

“Weather warfare” is the ultimate WMD  with the potential of destabilizing an enemy’s ecosystem, destroying its agriculture, disabling communications networks. In other words, ENMOD techniques can undermine an entire national economy, impoverish  millions of people and “kill a nation” without the deployment of troops and military hardware. 

The following text, with the exception of some small edits was first published in September 2004.

The 2004  article was a follow-up on an earlier study by the author entitled Washington’s New World Order Weapons Have the Ability to Trigger Climate Change, Third World Resurgence, January 2001, http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO201A.html

While The  Ecologist published in 2007 a shorter version of the above study, the issue of climatic manipulation for military use has largely been ignored by Environmentalists.

The URL of the original article is:


This essay is dedicated to the memory of  Dr. Rosalie Bertell, who, from the very outset revealed the diabolical nature of the HAARP project, as part of an integrated non-conventional weapons program:

“It is related to fifty years of intensive and increasingly destructive programs to understand and control the upper atmosphere. … HAARP is an integral part of a long history of space research and development of a deliberate military nature. The military implications of combining these projects is alarming. … The ability of the HAARP / Spacelab/ rocket combination to deliver very large amounts of energy, comparable to a nuclear bomb, anywhere on earth via laser and particle beams, are frightening. The project is likely to be “sold” to the public as a space shield against incoming weapons, or, for the more gullible, a device for repairing the ozone layer.

It is my sincere hope that this article will renew the debate on the dangers of weather warfare and will contribute to the broader objective of World peace which requires the relentless “disarming” of the US- NATO military apparatus.

Officially, the HAARP program has been closed down at its location in Alaska. The technology of weather modification shrouded in secrecy, nonetheless prevails.

Michel Chossudovsky, May 18  2015

Weather Warfare

The significant expansion in America’s weather warfare arsenal, which is a priority of the Department of Defense is not a matter for debate or discussion. While, environmentalists blame the Bush administration for not having signed the Kyoto protocol, the issue of “weather warfare”, namely the manipulation of weather patterns for military use is never mentioned.

The US Air Force has the capability of manipulating climate either for testing purposes or for outright military-intelligence use.  These capabilities extend to the triggering of floods, hurricanes, droughts and earthquakes. In recent years, large amounts of money have been allocated by the US Department of Defense to further developing and perfecting these capabilities.

Weather modification will become a part of domestic and international security and could be done unilaterally… It could have offensive and defensive applications and even be used for deterrence  purposes. The ability to generate precipitation, fog, and storms on earth or to modify space weather, … and the production of artificial weather all are a part of an integrated set of technologies which can provide substantial increase in US, or degraded capability in an adversary, to achieve global awareness, reach, and power. (US Air Force, emphasis added. Air University of the US Air Force, AF 2025 Final Report,

http://www.au.af.mil/au/2025/ emphasis added)

While there is no firm evidence that the US Air Force weather warfare facilities have been deliberately applied to modify weather patterns, one would expect that if these capabilities are being developed for military use, they would at least be the object of routine testing, much in the same way as the testing of new conventional and strategic weapons systems.

Needless to say, the subject matter is a scientific taboo. The possibility of climatic or environmental manipulations as part of a military and intelligence agenda, while tacitly acknowledged, is never considered as relevant. Military analysts are mute on the subject. Meteorologists are not investigating the matter, and environmentalists are strung on global warming and the Kyoto protocol.

Ironically, the Pentagon, while recognizing its ability to modify the World’s climate for military use, has joined the global warming consensus. In a major study (pdf) , the Pentagon has analyzed in detail the implications of various global warming scenarios.

The Pentagon document constitutes a convenient cover-up. Not a word is mentioned about its main weather warfare program: The High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) based in Gokona, Alaska –jointly managed by the US Air Force and the US Navy.

There are several mainstream explanations on weather and climate change, none of which fully explains, within their respective terms of reference, the highly unusual and erratic weather occurrences, not to mention the human toll and devastation, which have led to the destabilization of entire agricultural and eco-systems. Needless to say these explanations never address the issue of climate manipulation for military use.

Climatic Manipulation by the US Military: The HAARP Program

The High-Frequency Active Auroral Research Program (HAARP) based in Gokona, Alaska, has been in existence since 1992. It is part of a new generation of sophisticated weaponry under the US Strategic Defense Initiative (SDI). Operated by the Air Force Research Laboratory’s Space Vehicles Directorate, HAARP constitutes a system of powerful antennas capable of creating “controlled local modifications of the ionosphere” [upper layer of the atmosphere]:

“[HAARP will be used] to induce a small, localized change in ionospheric temperature so that resulting physical reactions can be studied by other instruments located either at or close to the HAARP site”. (HAARP website)

Nicholas Begich –actively involved in the public campaign against HAARP– describes HAARP as: “A super-powerful radiowave-beaming technology that lifts areas of the ionosphere  by focusing a beam and heating those areas. Electromagnetic waves then bounce back onto earth and penetrate everything — living and dead.”

(for further details see Michel Chossudovsky, http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/CHO201A.html )

World renowned scientist Dr. Rosalie Bertell depicts HAARP as “a gigantic heater that can cause major disruptions in the ionosphere, creating not just holes, but long incisions in the protective layer that keeps deadly radiation from bombarding the planet.” (quoted in Chossudovsky, op cit.)

According to Richard Williams, a physicist and consultant to the David Sarnoff laboratory in PrincetonHAARP constitutes “an irresponsible act of global vandalism.”

He and others fear a secret second stage where HAARP would

“beam much more energy into the ionosphere. That could produce a severe disruption of the upper atmosphere at one location that may produce effects that spread rapidly around the Earth for years.” 

(Quoted in Scott Gilbert, Environmental Warfare and US Foreign Policy: The Ultimate Weapon of Mass Destruction, 

http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/GIL401A.html )

HAARP has been presented to public opinion as a program of scientific and academic research. US military documents seem to suggest, however, that HAARP’s main objective is to “exploit the ionosphere for Department of Defense purposes.” (quoted in Chossudovsky, op cit).

Without explicitly referring to the HAARP program, a US Air Force study points to the use of “induced ionospheric modifications” as a means of altering weather patterns as well as disrupting enemy communications and radar. (Ibid)

HAARP also has the ability of triggering blackouts and disrupting the electricity power system of entire regions.

An analysis of statements emanating from the US Air Force points to the unthinkable: the covert manipulation of weather patterns, communications systems and electric power as a weapon of global warfare, enabling the US to disrupt and dominate entire regions of the World.

Weather Warfare: A Corporate Bonanza

HAARP has been operational since the early 1990s. Its system of antennas at Gakona, Alaska, was initially based on a technology patented by Advanced Power Technologies Inc. (APTI), a subsidiary of Atlantic Ritchfield Corporation (ARCO).

The first phase of the HAARP Ionospheric Research Instrument (IRI) was completed by APTI.  The IRI system of antennas was first installed in 1992 by a subsidiary of British Aerospace Systems (BAES) using the APTI patent. The antennas beam into the outer-atmosphere using a set of wireless high frequency transmitters.

In 1994, ARCO sold its APTI subsidiary, including the patents and the second phase construction contract to E-Systems, a secretive high tech military outfit with links to the CIA (http://www.crystalinks.com/haarp.html ).

E-Systems specializes in the production of electronic warfare equipment, navigation and reconnaissance machinery, including “highly sophisticated spying devices”:

“[E-Systems] is one of the biggest intelligence contractors in the world, doing work for the CIA, defense intelligence organizations, and others. US$1.8 billion of their annual sales are to these organizations, with $800 million for black projects-projects so secret that even the United States Congress isn’t told how the money is being spent.

http://www.earthpulse.com/haarp/vandalism.html )

“The company has outfitted such military projects as the Doomsday Plan (the system that allows the President to manage a nuclear war) and Operation Desert Storm.”

(Princeton Review, http://www.princetonreview.com/cte/profiles/internshipGenInfo.asp?internshipID=998 )

With the purchase of APTI, E-Systems acquired the strategic weather warfare technology and patent rights, including Bernard J. Eastlund’s US Patent No: 4,686,605 entitled “Method and Apparatus for Altering a Region in the Earth’s Atmosphere, Ionosphere and/or Magnetosphere”.

It is worth mentioning that the Eastlund /APTI patents were based on the research of Yugoslav scientist Nicola Tesla (many of whose ideas were stolen by US corporations).

(See Scott Gilbert, Environmental Warfare and US Foreign Policy: The Ultimate Weapon of Mass Destruction,  

http://www.globalresearch.ca/articles/GIL401A.html )

Eastlund described this deadly technology as capable of:

  “causing…total disruption of communications over a very large portion of the Earth…missile or aircraft destruction, deflection or confusion… weather modification…”

(http://www.wealth4freedom.com/truth/12/HAARP.htm ),

Not surprisingly, the patent had previously been sealed under a government secrecy order.Barely a year following the E-Systems purchase of APTI’s weather warfare technology, E-Systems was bought out by Raytheon, the fourth largest US military contractor. Through this money-spinning acquisition, Raytheon became the largest “defense electronics” firm in the World.Meanwhile, ARCO which had sold APTI to E-Systems, had itself been acquired by the BP-AMOCO oil consortium, thereby integrating the largest oil company in the World (BP).

Raytheon through its E-Systems subsidiary now owns the patents used to develop the HAARP weather warfare facility at Gakona Alaska. Raytheon is also involved in other areas of weather research for military use, including the activities of its subsidiary in Antarctica, Raytheon Polar Services.

“Owning the Weather”: Towards the Expanded Final Stage

The HAARP antenna array and transmitters were slated to be built in several distinct phases http://www.haarp.alaska.edu/haarp/phases.html

During the Clinton administration, the “Filled Developmental Prototype” (FDP), namely a system composed of an array of 48 active antenna elements with connected wireless transmitters, was installed and completed at the HAARP facility in 1994. (See Figure 1 below) Under the initial Developmental Prototype (DP), only 18 of the 48 transmitters were connected.

Bernard Eastlund in a 1997 interview described this antenna array in its Filled DP stage as the “the largest ionospheric heater ever built”.

This system of 48 antennas, however, while fully operational, was not according to Eastlund, powerful enough (in 1997) “to bring the ideas in his patents to fruition”:.

“But they’re getting up there”, he said. “This is a very powerful device. Especially if they go to the expanded stage.”

(quoted in Scott Gilbert, op cit,

see also http://www.emagazine.com/january-february_1997/0197currhaarp.html )

This ‘final expanded stage’ envisioned by Eastlund, which will provide maximum capability to manipulate the World’s weather patterns, has now been reached.Under the Bush administration, the main partner of Raytheon (which owns the patents) in the construction and development stage of the HAARP antenna array, is British Aerospace Systems (BAES), which had been involved in the initial installation of the antenna array in the early 1990s.The multimillion dollar contract was granted by The Office of Naval Research to BAES in 2003, through its US subsidiary BAE Systems Advanced Technologies Inc. The contract was signed barely two months before the Anglo-American invasion of Iraq.

Using Raytheon’s technology, BAES was to develop the HAARP Ionospheric Research Instrument (IRI) to its maximum capabilities of “Full size or final IRI (FIRI)”.

In April 2003, BAE Systems Advanced Technologies outsourced the production and installation of the antennas to Phazar Corp (http://www.phazar.com/ ), a company specializing in advanced wireless antennas for military use.

(Phazar owns Antenna Products Corporation of Mineral Wells, Texas http://www.antennaproducts.com/).

Phazar was entrusted with producing and installing 132 crossed dipole antennas items for the HAARP facility.

(http://www.antennaproducts.com/News%20Release%2004-18-03.pdf )

A year later, in April 2004, the final phase in the expansion of the HAARP facility was launched. (Dept of Defense, 19 April 2004). This phase consisted in equipping all the 180 antennas with high frequency transmitters.  BAE Systems was awarded another lucrative contract, this time for $35 million.

In July 2004, Phazar had delivered and installed the 132 crossed dipole antennas including the antenna support structures and ground screen items at the HAARP facility, bringing the number of antennas from 48 under the FDP stage to 180. (see Table 2).

Meanwhile, BAE Systems had contracted with Jersey based defense electronics firm DRS Technologies, Inc in an $11.5 million outsourcing arrangement, the production and installation of the high-frequency (HF) radio transmitters for the HAARP antenna array.

(See http://www.drs.com/press/archivelist.cfm?PRESS_RELEASE_ID=1529&preview=1 and Business Wire, 15 June 2004).

DRS specializes in a variety of leading edge products for the U.S. military and intelligence agencies.

http://www.drs.com/corporateinfo/index.cfm ).

Under its contract with BAE Systems Information and Electronic Warfare Systems in Washington, D.C., DRS is to manufacture and install “more than 60 Model D616G 10-Kilowatt Dual Transmitters” to be used with the HAARP system of antennas. (It is unclear from the company statements whether all the 180 antennas will be equipped with a transmitter, bringing the system up to full IRI capabilities).

Deliveries and installation are to be completed by July 2006. While HAARP is described as a “research project”, the production of the transmitters was entrusted to DRS’ C41 “Command, Control, Communications, Computers and Intelligence (C4I) Group”

Testing of HAARP Equipment (2003- 2004)

It is worth noting that the expansion of the antenna array (e.g. during 2003-2004) required, as part of the contracts reached with BAE Systems and its various subcontractors, the routine testing of the installed weather warfare equipment. An intermediate stage Limited IRI (LIRI), could be in operation by 2004, following the completion of the 180 antenna array under the Phazar contract and pending the final delivery of the remaining HF radio transmitters.

In this regard, a report published by the Russian parliament (Duma) in 2002, suggests that the US Military had plans to test its weather modification techniques at its Alaska facility, as well as at two other sites:

“The committees reported that the USA is planning to test three facilities of this kind. One of them is located on the military testing ground in Alaska and its full-scale tests are to begin in early 2003. The second one is in Greenland and the third one in Norway.

“When these facilities are launched into space from Norway, Alaska and Greenland, a closed contour will be created with a truly fantastic integral potential for influencing the near-Earth medium,” the State Duma said.

The USA plans to carry out large-scale scientific experiments under the HAARP program, and not controlled by the global community, will create weapons capable of breaking radio communication lines and equipment installed on spaceships and rockets, provoke serious accidents in electricity networks and in oil and gas pipelines and have a negative impact on the mental health of people populating entire regions, the deputies said. (Interfax News Agency, original Russian, BBC Monitoring, 8 August 2002, emphasis added)

Whether this report by the Russian Duma on testing “starting in early 2003” is correct or not, the US administration must be confronted nationally and internationally, at the political and diplomatic levels, at the UN and the US Congress, by the international scientific community, by environmentalists and the antiwar movement. The future of humanity is threatened by the use of weather modification techniques.

Moreover, to wage an effective campaign, it is essential that corroborating scientific investigation of the unusual weather occurrences observed in recent years (and particularly since early 2003) be undertaken. This investigation should be far-reaching, collecting relevant data, correlating specific weather occurrences to recorded antenna activity at the Alaska site as well as at the two other sites, etc.

The Full Size Ionospheric Research Instrument FIRI stage, described as  “a maximum size of 180 antenna elements, arranged in 15 columns by 12 rows” is scheduled to be completed by mid-2006 (assuming the installation of the remaining dual transmitters), at which time the HAARP program will have reached its maximum FIRI capacity, meaning the ability to selectively modify, for military use, weather patterns anywhere in the World.

“The IRI is currently [June 2004] composed of 48 antenna elements and has a power capacity of 960,000 watts. When installed, the additional 132 transmitters will give HAARP a 3.6 mega-watt capacity [see Table 2 below]. The HAARP build-out is jointly funded by the U.S. Air Force, the U.S. Navy and the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA). (Business Wire, 10 June 2004)

This advanced stage of full capacity (FIRI) corresponds to what the US Air Force has called “Owning the Weather”:

US aerospace forces [will] ‘own the weather’ by capitalizing on emerging technologies and focusing development of those technologies to war-fighting applications… From enhancing friendly operations or disrupting those of the enemy via small-scale tailoring of natural weather patterns to complete dominance of global communications and counterspace control, weather-modification offers the war fighter a wide-range of possible options to defeat or coerce an adversary… In the United States, weather-modification will likely become a part of national security policy with both domestic and international applications. Our government will pursue such a policy, depending on its interests, at various levels.

(US Air Force, emphasis added. Air University of the US Air Force, AF 2025 Final Report, http://www.au.af.mil/au/2025/ )

Weather Warfare against “Rogue States”

The unusual climatic occurrences in the US and Western Europe have been extensively documented.

However, what the news media has failed to underscore is that a number of unusual and dramatic climatic changes have occurred in recent years in countries which are identified as possible targets under the US Administration’s pre-emptive war doctrine.

Weather patterns in North Korea, for instance, have been marked since the mid-1990s by a succession of droughts, followed by floods. The result has been the destruction of an entire agricultural system. In Cuba, the pattern is very similar to that observed in North Korea. (see Table 3)

In Iraq, Iran and  Syria, a devastating drought occurred in 1999. In Afghanistan, four years of drought in the years preceding the US led invasion in 2001, have led to the destruction of the peasant economy, leading to widespread famine.

While there is no proof that these weather occurrences are the result of climatic warfare, Phillips Geophysics Lab, which is a partner in the HAARP project provides a course for military personnel at the Hanscom Air Force Base in Maryland, on “Weather Modification Techniques”. The course outline explicitly contemplates the triggering of storms, hurricanes, etc. for military use.

(See his slide show at http://www.dtc.army.mil/tts/1997/proceed/abarnes/

Weather manipulation is the pre-emptive weapon par excellence. It can be directed against enemy countries or even “friendly nations”, without their knowledge. Weather warfare constitutes a covert form of pre-emptive war. The manipulation of climate can be used to destabilize an enemy’s economy, ecosystem and agriculture (e.g. North Korea or Cuba). Needless to say it can trigger havoc in financial and commodity markets and can potentially be used as an instrument of “insider trade” for financial gain. It has the ability of destabilizing a country’s institutions. Concurrently, the disruption in agriculture creates a greater dependency on food aid and imported grain staples from the US and other Western countries.

The Bush administration has stated that it reserves the right to attack these countries preemptively, with a view to ensuring the security of the American homeland.

Washington –as part of its nuclear posture review– has threatened several countries including China and Russia with pre-emptive nuclear strikes. One would assume that the same targeting of rogue states exists with regard to the use of weather modification techniques”.

While there is no evidence of the use of weather warfare against rogue states, the policy guidelines on “weather intervention techniques” have already been established and the technology is fully operational.

Table 3: Unusual Weather Occurrences: North Korea, Cuba, Afghanistan and Iraq

North Korea

Recurrent flooding and drought often in the same year has hit North Korea since 1995, 220,000 people died in the ensuing famine, according to Pyongyang’s own figures. U.S. figures place the number of deaths resulting from famine at 2 million.

The first major flooding occurred in 1995.

There were floods and drought in 1999. The serious water shortage resulting from the 1999 drought was conducive to the destruction of crops.

“The temperature of water in rice fields goes beyond 40 degrees and the tall rice plants fresh from the rice seedling beds are withering. In particular, nearly all after-crop maize seedlings and seeds are perishing,” it added.

In 2001, in June there was an extensive drought with rainfall just 10% of normal levels, which served to undermine agricultural crops. And then a few months later, in October, there were extensive floodings leading to the further destruction of rice harvests and a crisis situation in food distribution.

“Officials in Kangwon province – an area which already suffers food shortages – say the impact of the torrential rain and flooding has been devastating. The normal recorded rainfall for October should be around 20mm. But in the worst-affected areas 400mm (18 inches) of rain fell in just 12 hours. “It was the worst flooding we’ve had since records began in 1910,” said Kim Song Hwan, head of the government’s Flood Damage Rehabilitation Committee for the region.

For several years Cuba has been affected by recurrent droughts. In 1998, rainfall in Eastern Cuba was at its lowest level since 1941.

A United Nations team estimated 539,000 people, 280,000 of them farmers, were directly affected by reduced availability of food or reduced income through production losses. Some reported effects are: hunger in areas; a loss of up to 14% of the sugar cane crop planted last year and a reduction in this spring’s planted crops, since rains were not sufficient for some seeds to germinate (which will reduce next year’s crop); as much as 42% losses in food staples such as root vegetables, beans, bananas, and rice in the five eastern provinces; and livestock, poultry, and egg production losses

In 2003, a devastating drought hit the Western part of Cuba

In 2004  May-June, the country is hit by the worst drought in its history:

 “A severe drought enveloping eastern Cuba has eroded 40 percent of the farmland, starved thousands of heads of cattle and has close to 4 million people counting every drop of water they consume.” The drought is described as the worst in 40 years.

“The drought has robbed underground water levels of some 10 feet over the past 10 years, leaving over 5,000 wells across the province dry,” said Leandro Bermudez, a geologist and the second man at Cuba’s National Institute of Hydraulic Resources.

(MSNBC, 21 June 2004 http://msnbc.msn.com/id/5262324

The cities are running out of water. According to the Independent,  “Drought is bringing Cuba to its knees

Unnoticed by the world, the longest dry period for decades has brought much of Cuba to its knees. Could this be the crisis that finally destroys Fidel’s revolution?

“All across central and eastern Cuba, farmers, ranchers, city dwellers and government officials are scrambling to deal with a punishing drought that began a decade ago and intensified in the last two years.

Although traditionally arid, the provinces of Holguin, Camaguey and Las Tunas hold some of Cuba’s finest pasture and farmland and have long been crucial to this communist nation’s dairy, beef and agricultural industries.

More than 12,500 cattle have died in Holguin alone in 2004 and milk production has fallen 20 percent. The price of beans, plantains, sweet potatoes and other staples has soared in private markets.

The drought has caused millions of dollars in losses and officials are spending millions more digging wells, building a water pipeline and taking other measures to try to ease the crisis – huge sums in an impoverished nation struggling through tough economic times and a battle with the United States.

Officials also have moved thousands of cattle to more fertile areas and are working furiously to finish a 32-mile pipeline that will draw water to Holguin city from Cuba’s largest river, the Cauto. The $5 million pipeline could be completed next month.

The above report date to September 2004, it was published before, the hurricanes hit the Cuban coastline followed by torrential rains.

Afghanistan and The former Soviet Republics of Central Asia

The worst drought in Afghanistan history occurred in the three consecutive years prior to the onslaught of the US led invasion, from 1999 to 2001. The agricultural recovery of the 1990s, in the wake of the Soviet-Afghan war was brought to a standstill.

In the wake of the US led 2001 invasion,  the United States supplied Afghanistan with genetically modified wheat and appropriate types of fertilizer to be used with the GM wheat, which was said to be high yield drought resistant. The donation of GM wheat, however, also led to destabilizing the small peasant economy because the GM wheat varieties could not reproduced locally. In 2002, famines which were barely reported by the media, swept the country.

Similar although less severe conditions prevailed in the former Soviet republics of Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Tajikistan, Turkmenistan, and Uzbekistan.

Like Afghanistan, Tajikistan has had its infrastructure ruined by prolonged civil war with Muslim fundamentalists. Since then, the worst regional drought in 74 years has destroyed food crops over a large part of the nation, rendering almost half of the 6.2 million people in the country vulnerable to the threat of famine and disease, up from 3 million last year. About the only portion of the economy that has been unaffected is the drug trade. Tajikistan is the transit route for 65 to 85 percent of heroin smuggled out of Afghanistan, the world’s largest producer.


Triggered by the lowest rainfall (2001) in living memory, vast tracts of Iran, Uzbekistan, Pakistan and Tajikistan are being reduced to desert as the water table sinks, long-established wells dry up and herds of livestock perish.

The crisis appears to fulfill alarming climate change predictions suggesting that states along the old Silk Road will experience steeper rises in temperature than any other region on earth. By the end of the century it will be 5C hotter in an area which regularly sees the thermometer soar above 40C.

The study, published last year by the Tyndall Centre for Climate Change Research at the University of East Anglia, predicted that Asian countries from Kazakhstan to Saudi Arabia will warm up more than twice as much as others. “Several states,” the report added, “including Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan and Iran, [are facing] famine.”

In Tajikistan, the United Nations appealed for aid to avert disaster. “Substantial foreign aid is needed or else there will be a large-scale famine,” said Matthew Kahane, the UN’s humanitarian aid coordinator, speaking from the capital, Dushanbe.

“The country has had its lowest rainfall for 75 years. Families who survived last year by selling their cows and chickens now have no other means of coping. Some households have sold the glass out of their windows and the wooden beams from their roofs to raise money for food.”

(The Guardian, 0ct 30, 2001,

In 1999, Iraq suffered its worst drought of the century, with the effect of triggering an even greater dependence on imported grain under the oil for food program. There was a drop of up to 70  percent in domestic yields of wheat, barley and other cereals, which served to further weaken the country’s economy, crippled by economic sanctions  and the routine bombing by allied aircraft in the no-fly zones.

A similar (although less serious) situation prevailed in Syria and Iran, marked by significant declines in agricultural output.

Global Poverty: How the Rich Eat the Poor and the World

The Big Lies

First published by GR on January 24, 2016

The 2016 Oxfam Davos Report which the mass media have ignored arrestingly shows that 62 individuals – 388 in 2010 – now own more wealth than 50% of the world’s population. More shockingly, it reports from its uncontested public sources that this share of wealth by half of the world’s people has collapsed by over 40% in just the last five years.

Yet the big lies persist even here that “the progress has been made in tackling world poverty” and “extreme poverty has been halved since 1990”.

Reversing Undeniable Fact as Ultimate Justification

Unbelievably, the endlessly repeated assertion of the form that ‘the poor are being lifted out of poverty in ever greater numbers’ continues on untouched despite the hard evidence that, in fact, the poorer half of humanity has lost almost half of their wealth in just the last five years.

This big lie is significant in its implications. For not only is a pervasive claim about the success of globalization undeniably falsified while no-one notices it. Basic market theory and dogma collapses as a result. What is daily claimed as an infallible benefit of the global market is shown to be the opposite of reality. What does it mean for “trickle-down theory” when, in truth, the trickle down goes up in hundreds of billions of dollars to the rich from the already poor and destitute?

What can we say now of the tirelessly proclaimed doctrine that the global market brings “more wealth for all” when, in fact, unimpeachable business evidence shows the opposite reality on the ground and across the world. For the poor have undeniably lost almost half their share of global wealth while the richest have multiplied theirs at the same time.

The evidence proves, in short, that the main moral and economic claims justifying the global market are very big lies becoming bigger all the time.

Worse than delusional, the lived reality of impoverishment of billions of people is reversed, the victims are continually proclaimed to be doing better under the system that increasingly deprives them of what little they have, and a trillion dollars worth of loss to the poorer half of humanity ends up in the pockets of the rich within only five years.

While the ever bigger lies go on justifying the global system that eats the poor alive as “poverty amelioration”, ever more of the same policies of accumulation by dispossession justify still more  stripping of  the majority as more “austerity”, more “welfare cuts”,  and more “labor flexibility” – in a word, more starvation and depredation of people’s lives and life conditions as “more freedom and prosperity for all”.

The Statistical Shell Game that Masks the Life-Devouring Reality

As World Bank, IMF and like figures claim to show the uplifting of the poor out of poverty across the world,  media of record like The Guardian and the New York Times report the claims with headlines to show all is well and getter for the poor and the majority as they are in fact grindingly reduced in their actual lives, work and life security. Thus the very big lies are instituted as given facts which economists and social scientists propagate without a blink.

In fact, these alleged great gains for the poor out of poverty and absolute poverty alike are based on income gains of less than a cup of coffee a day, an observation that is so well blocked from view that readers may now be seeing it for the first time. Thus the hypnotic thrall of the big lies are sustained, while no other life support system is. I have had economists and interviewers of high note respond angrily when this delusion is pointed out, as if I was letting down the poor rather than exposing the big lies. In this way, we find that the masking falsehoods  have gone so deep into expert and public assumption that the real-life world can no longer be engaged. These big lies then work in the background to the non-stop big lies that precede endless  foreign conflicts and wars to “defend the free world”

No-one appears to observe that the income gains ’lifting the poor out of poverty’ typically refer to emigrants from the countryside into polluted cities, insecure and dehumanized life conditions for those who formerly had at least a family dwelling, clean air and water and living horizons.  In short, the standard $1.50 +/- measure of uplift out of poverty and extreme poverty is inhumanly absurd, but triumphally used as proof that the system is serving the least too.

The Counter-Revolution against Social Evolution that Engineers Deepening Recession

Throughout the unseen redistribution of wealth from the poor to the rich (now buried in much talk of “inequality”), ever more “market reforms” are enforced as “enhanced competition”, “liberalized de-regulation”,  “reduced welfare costs” and “austerity programs to correct excesses”. The “excessive entitlements” of the system are all projected on the victims so that  the truly insane entitlements of the richest to multiply their fortunes with no committed life function, value or coordinate but still more money-demand for them is somehow not noticed. This is yet another level of normalized big lies forming the ruling thought system.

In fact beneath the pervasive propaganda conditioning citizens to believe in the private money shell game devouring the world, the poorer half of humanity has been deprived of one trillion dollars of wealth while the 62 richest people have gained almost twice as much for themselves by the operations of this global disorder. Yet the Davos Report further emphasizes that still another US $760 billion goes annually to non-producing investors by immense transnational tax evasion with impunity across the world. Again the borderless money-capital freedom of ‘globalization’ vastly enriches the richest, while simultaneously doubling down on deprivation of the poor as ‘poverty reduction’.

Here the system is programmed in effect to strip the funding of all public sectors and institutions which have evolved to serve the common life interest. Public services and infrastructures too are perpetually driven towards bankruptcy not only by never-ending defunding, cutbacks, privatizations, and corporate lobby control of public policies and subsidies, but by ever-soaring public tax evasion near one trillion dollars annually about which governments and trade treaties have done nothing to correct yet.

Thus governments which could invest in sustaining humanity’s social and ecological life support systems from growing deterioration and collapse are now systematically bankrupted or debt enslaved along with most citizens. In consequence without governments knowing why, the world economy slips into ever deeper recession from the collapse of economic demand at the public and majority levels.

Eating the World Alive as Global Competition

The new law of human evolution is that are required to compete for more money and commodities for themselves as “necessary to survive”, with the borderless system de-regulated and structured to increasingly impoverish the great majority while multiplying the wealth of the rich. The facts are now long in. Corporate globalization is not only out of control. It is eating the world alive at all levels towards cumulative collapse of organic, social and ecological life organization. Global competition means, in fact, the majority’s life means and security keep falling as the environment is looted and polluted on ever larger scales of depredation. Yet only “more growth” of this system is imagined as a solution. The system is clinically insane

While the common life-ground is blinkered out a-priori by the ruling value system, those deprived and left behind disappear into multi-level big lies proclaiming the opposite. This is why the facts are not reported. This is why claimed actions to stop the world bleeding blinker out the system disorder causing them. This is why even progressives assume economic falsehoods as if they were true. Like a cancer system at the macro level, this exponentially multiplying private money-sequence system has only one set-point – to blindly grow itself while masking the life-devouring disorder as “enhancing people’s well-being”.

Now Just FIVE Men Own Almost as Much Wealth as Half the World’s Population

Last year it was 8 men, then down to 6, and now it’s probably just 5.

The super-rich are absconding with our wealth, and the plague of inequality continues to grow. An analysis of 2016 data found that the poorest five deciles of the world population own about $410 billion in total wealth.

As of June 2017, the world’s richest five men owned over $400 billion in wealth. Thus, on average, each man owns nearly as much as 750 million people.

Why Do We Let a Few People Shift Great Portions of the World’s Wealth to Themselves?

Most of the world’s super-super-rich are Americans. We the American people created the Internet, developed and funded Artificial Intelligence, and built a massive transportation infrastructure, yet we let just a few individuals take almost all the credit, along with hundreds of billions of dollars.

Defenders of the out-of-control wealth gap insist that all is OK, because, after all, America is a ‘meritocracy’ in which the super-wealthy have ‘earned’ all they have.

They heed the words of Warren Buffett:

“The genius of the American economy, our emphasis on a meritocracy and a market system and a rule of law has enabled generation after generation to live better than their parents did.”

But it’s not a meritocracy. Children are no longer living better than their parents did. In the eight years since the recession the Wilshire Total Market valuation has more than TRIPLED, rising from a little over $8 trillion to nearly $25 trillion.

The great majority of it has gone to the very richest Americans. In 2016 alone, the richest 1% effectively shifted nearly $4 trillion in wealth away from the rest of the nation to themselves, with nearly half of the wealth transfer ($1.94 trillion) coming from the nation’s poorest 90% — the middle and lower classes.

That’s over $17,000 in housing and savings per lower-to-middle-class household lost to the super-rich.

A meritocracy? Bill Gates, Mark Zuckerberg, and Jeff Bezos have done little that wouldn’t have happened anyway. ALL modern U.S. technology started with — and to a great extent, continues with — our tax dollars, our research institutes and our subsidies to corporations.

Why Do We Let Unqualified Rich People Tell Us How To Live? Especially Bill Gates!

In 1975, at the age of 20, Bill Gates founded Microsoft with high school buddy Paul Allen. At the time Gary Kildall’s CP/M operating system was the industry standard.

Even Gates’ company used it. But Kildall was an innovator, not a businessman, and when IBM came calling for an OS for the new IBM PC, his delays drove the big mainframe company to Gates.

Even though the newly established Microsoft company couldn’t fill IBM’s needs, Gates and Allen saw an opportunity, and so they hurriedly bought the rights to another local company’s OS — which was based on Kildall’s CP/M system.

Kildall wanted to sue, but intellectual property law for software had not yet been established. Kildall was a maker who got taken.

So Bill Gates took from others to become the richest man in the world. And now, because of his great wealth and the meritocracy myth, many people look to him for solutions in vital areas of human need, such as education and global food production.

— Gates on Education: He has promoted galvanic skin response monitors to measure the biological reactions of students, and the videotaping of teachers to evaluate their performances.

About schools he said, “The best results have come in cities where the mayor is in charge of the school system. So you have one executive, and the school board isn’t as powerful.”

— Gates on Africa: With investments in or deals with Monsanto, Cargill, and Merck, Gates has demonstrated his preference for corporate control over poor countries deemed unable to help themselves.

But no problem — according to Gates, “By 2035, there will be almost no poor countries left in the world.”

Warren Buffett: Demanding To Be Taxed at a Higher Rate (As Long As His Own Company Doesn’t Have To Pay)

Warren Buffett has advocated for higher taxes on the rich and a reasonable estate tax. But his company Berkshire Hathaway has used “hypothetical amounts” to ‘pay’ its taxes while actually deferring $77 billion in real taxes.

Jeff Bezos: $50 Billion in Less Than Two Years, and Fighting Taxes All the Way

Since the end of 2015 Jeff Bezos has accumulated enough wealth to cover the entire $50 billion U.S. housing budget, which serves five million Americans.

Bezos, who has profited greatly from the Internet and the infrastructure built up over many years by many people with many of our tax dollars, has used tax havens and high-priced lobbyists to avoid the taxes owed by his company.

Mark Zuckerberg (6th Richest in World, 4th Richest in America)

While Zuckerberg was developing his version of social networking at Harvard, Columbia University students Adam Goldberg and Wayne Ting built a system called Campus Network, which was much more sophisticated than the early versions of Facebook.

But Zuckerberg had the Harvard name and better financial support. It was also alleged that Zuckerberg hacked into competitors’ computers to compromise user data.

Now with his billions he has created a ‘charitable’ foundation, which in reality is a tax-exempt limited liability company, leaving him free to make political donations or sell his holdings, all without paying taxes.

Everything has fallen into place for young Zuckerberg. Nothing left for him to do but run for president.

The False Promise of Philanthropy

Many super-rich individuals have pledged the majority of their fortunes to philanthropic causes. That’s very generous — if they keep their promises. But that’s not really the point.

American billionaires all made their money because of the research and innovation and infrastructure that make up the foundation of our modern technologies. They have taken credit, along with their massive fortunes, for successes that derive from society rather than from a few individuals.

It should not be any one person’s decision about the proper use of that wealth. Instead a significant portion of annual national wealth gains should be promised to education, housing, health research, and infrastructure. That is what Americans and their parents and grandparents have earned after a half-century of hard work and productivity.

‘Art’ video of naked tag game in Polish ex-Nazi camp has Jewish groups demanding answers

'Art' video of naked tag game in Polish ex-Nazi camp has Jewish groups demanding answers
Outraged Jewish rights groups have penned a letter to the Polish president, demanding an explanation for a bizarre naked “game of tag” art performance inside a former concentration camp’s gas chamber.

The 5-minute video (WARNING: EXPLICIT CONTENT), titled “Game of Tag,” shows several men and women, all stark naked, running and laughing in a concrete dungeon resembling a gas chamber. The title on the video says that it was filmed in “two different locations: in the basement of a private home and in a gas chamber of one of the former concentration camps.”

The video was filmed in 1999 by Artur Zmijewski, but has returned to the headlines after activists tracked down the exact location of the filming: the Stutthof concentration camp, east of the city of Gdansk.

In 2015, the “performance” courted controversy when it became a part of an exhibition reflecting on the impact the concentration camps left on Polish, Jewish and German societies.

The exhibition was held at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow and was endorsed by the Israeli embassy in Poland, which requested the removal of the controversial “art piece” shortly after it sparked outrage. The call was supported by numerous Jewish groups, who denounced the film as “revolting” and the “most disgusting” and immoral thing, according to the Wiesenthal Center’s Efraim Zuroff.

The video “causes extraordinary anguish to Auschwitz survivors to whom the Holocaust is not a remote event in history, but rather serves as an enduring warning about the dangers of anti-Semitism, racial hatred and xenophobia,” The Times of Israel cited World Jewish Congress President Ronald Lauder as saying at the time.

However, while the museum initially pledged to pull the video, the only thing it did was limit access to the work, which remained a part of the exhibition being displayed in a specially built enclosure with the disclaimer, “Only for adult viewers.”

Defending its decision, the museum said that visitors should decide for themselves if they want to watch the performance, arguing that the video should not be taken as an insult, and is just a way to rekindle a discussion about the suffering of the Jews at the hands of Nazis.

A number of prominent Jewish groups, including the Organization of Holocaust Survivors in Israel and the Simon Wiesenthal center, appealed to Polish President Andrzej Duda on Wednesday to reveal if the Polish government was aware of the filming and whether the artist was given the go-ahead by the local authorities, the Times of Israel reported, citing a letter they sent to Duda’s office. The activists also asked if there are applicable rules that regulate proper conduct at the site and whether the circumstances of the filming were subject to investigation by the authorities.

The Stutthof concentration camp was established in September 1939 and functioned until it was liberated by the Allies on Victory Day: May 9, 1945. Between 1939 and 1945, some 65,000 people, including 28,000 Jews, were exterminated there or died due to the dire conditions in the camp.

Muslim population in Europe to triple by 2050, even with ‘zero migration’ – study

Muslim population in Europe to triple by 2050, even with ‘zero migration’ – study
Europe’s Muslim population will multiply even if all migration stops permanently, a study has found. On the other hand, high migration sees predictions of some 76 million Muslims dwelling in Europe by 2050.

A revealing survey by Pew Research Center, ‘Europe’s Growing Muslim Population’, looks at the future of the 25.8 million Muslims currently residing in European countries. Citing a comprehensive swath of data, it is an attempt to see how the size of Europe’s Muslim population may change in the coming decades, depending on levels of migration.

All three scenarios – zero, moderate and high – considered by researchers produced a thought-provoking outcome: the number of Muslims in Europe will rise at any rate of migration, as they are younger and “have higher fertility (one child more per woman, on average) than other Europeans, mirroring a global pattern.”

Under a first, “zero migration” scenario, the Muslim population of Europe still would be expected to rise from the current level of 4.9 percent to 7.4 percent (roughly 36 million) by the year 2050 even “if all migration into Europe were to immediately and permanently stop.”

A second, “medium” migration scenario assumes that the flows of refugees stop, but “regular” migrants continue to come for reasons other than fleeing wars and instability. Under these conditions, Muslims could comprise 11.2 percent (59 million) of Europe’s population in 2050.

A third, “high” migration scenario, in which the heavy influx of predominantly Muslim migrants recorded between 2014 and 2016 continues indefinitely, paints a far more pessimistic picture. In this case, Muslims could make up 14 percent (75 million) of Europe’s population by 2050 – nearly triple the current figure.

Should that happen, several major European countries are expected to shoulder most of the burden. In Sweden, nearly a third of the population (4.5 million, or 30 percent) would be Muslims, whereas in Austria and Germany Muslims would represent up to 19 percent of the population.

Also, if high migration continues until 2050, Britain’s Muslim share will grow to 17.2 percent, Finland’s to 15 percent and Norway’s to 17 percent.

These four maps show estimated Muslim populations in Europe in 2016, and projections for 2050 in zero migration, medium migration and high migration scenarios: http://pewrsr.ch/2inJnRY 

“While Europe’s Muslim population is expected to grow in all three scenarios – and more than double in the medium and high migration scenarios – Europe’s non-Muslims, on the other hand, are projected to decline in total number in each scenario,” says the Pew report.

Interestingly, researchers noted that while Europe’s Muslim population is diverse, comprising Muslims born in Europe and in non-European countries, its self-identification still plays a role. “Levels of religious commitment and belief vary among Europe’s Muslim populations,” the report said.

Europe’s Muslim population is expected to grow in all three of the migration scenarios we modeled, while Europe’s non-Muslims are projected to decline in total number in each scenario http://pewrsr.ch/2inpNWn 

While some of those Muslims “would not describe Muslim identity as salient in their daily lives,” for others, Islamic identity “profoundly shapes their daily lives.” In the meantime, “not all children born to Muslim women will ultimately identify as Muslims, but children are generally more likely to adopt their parents’ religious identity than any other.”

From mid-2010 to mid-2016 alone, the share of Muslims in Europe rose more than 1 percentage point, from 3.8% to 4.9% (from 19.5M to 25.8M). By 2050, the share of the continent’s population that is Muslim could more than double, rising to 11.2% or more. http://pewrsr.ch/2io75hh 

Researchers said it was difficult – if not impossible – to predict future migration levels. “Although none of these scenarios will play out exactly as projected, each provides a set of rough parameters from which to imagine other possible outcomes,” the study added.
There has been a heavy influx of migrants to Europe over the past two years, with Germany and Central European nations most affected, along with arrival points such as Italy and Greece.

The crisis gave rise to various far-right parties benefiting from popular fears of mass migration. In a bid to stem the flow of migrants, the EU undertook a major policy change, introducing tougher border controls and stricter eligibility criteria for new arrivals.

Previous polls suggested the majority of Europeans are wary of Muslim immigration. In August this year, Germany’s Bertelsmann Foundation found that every fifth European citizen does not want Muslims as neighbors. A February study by the UK-based think tank Chatham House revealed that an average of 55 percent of people in 10 European countries “agreed that all further migration from mainly Muslim countries should be stopped.”

The Israeli spy company which protected Weinstein operates in London; Britain must investigate its activities

Harvey Weinstein, American film producer, has been accused of harassment and rape by over 82 women [Lights Camera Jackson/Faceboo]

You’d be forgiven for thinking that the story was the paranoid raving of the strangest of conspiracy theorists, but it’s true; alleged multiple-rapist and disgraced Hollywood mogul Harvey Weinstein really did hire former agents of Israel’s Mossad spy agency to snoop on his accusers and on journalists who were planning to report the story that has rocked the world since the start of October.

In a long and meticulous investigative report published by The New Yorker earlier this month, journalist Ronan Farrow broke the news that Weinstein hired Israel’s Black Cube to spy on Rose McGowan – who accuses him of rape – and on Ben Wallace, a reporter at New York magazine whose story on Weinstein was ultimately spiked by his editors.

Hired via Weinstein’s lawyer — to ensure the secrecy provided by attorney-client privilege — the Israeli firm went to extreme lengths to get dirt on McGowan. According to The New Yorker report, the firm dispatched a former Israeli military officer to pose as a women’s rights activist, whilst hinting to Wallace that she also had an allegation to make against Weinstein.

The women used the false name “Diana Filip” and gained McGowan’s trust while pressing her subtly for information. According to the report, her employer, Black Cube, seemed to have obtained half of a draft manuscript of a book on which McGowan was working. Weinstein appeared to be after any information that could discredit McGowan, or that could be used against her in any future court case. The actress first came out publicly with some of her allegations to The New York Times in October.

The Black Cube spy was named soon afterwards by the Mail Online as Stella Penn Pechanac, apparently a former air force officer and small-time actor.

When she recounted her experiences with Weinstein, “it seemed like soap-opera acting,” recalled Wallace when speaking to The New Yorker’s Ronan Farrow. Over the course of two meetings, Wallace explained, he grew suspicious of the woman’s motives. With the journalist, Pechanac used the name “Anna” but he and McGowan both identified her from the same photo shown to them by Farrow.

According to Wallace, “Anna” was pumping him for information “about the status and scope of my inquiry, and about who I might be talking to, without giving me any meaningful help or information.”

Black Cube’s website advertises the company as a “select group of veterans from the Israeli elite intelligence units” and boasts proudly of having former killers and spies as current members of its board, including the former head of Israel’s National Security Council, Giora Eiland, and (somewhat bizarrely) “the late Meir Dagan,” the former head of the country’s Mossad spy agency.

Although The New Yorker reported that documents it had obtained proved that Black Cube invoiced Weinstein for $600,000, the Mail Online claimed that the amount may have been much higher.

For once, words really do fail me. The level of deceit, immorality and mercenary vindictiveness required for this company to agree to such a contract is staggering.

In 2016, well before naming Weinstein in the US press this year, McGowan tweeted information which – without naming him explicitly– identified Weinstein indirectly as “my rapist”. It may have been this which prompted him to unleash private investigators onto her.

Once exposed — to much public disapprobation — as having worked for a man alleged to have sexually harassed as many as 100 women – including 18 alleged rapes – Black Cube issued a rather weak non-apology. “In retrospect, it’s a shame we took the job,” Black Cube board member and former Tel Aviv University Professor Asher Tishler told Israeli news media. However, he defended working with Weinstein, claiming that “the job was taken in a justified manner.” He claimed that the money paid to the company for spying on a woman allegedly raped by the Hollywood producer would now be given “to women’s groups”.

Black Cube’s claims of good faith have absolutely no credibility whatsoever. Talk of Weinstein’s abuses had reportedly been an “open secret” in Hollywood for decades.

What’s more, as journalist Max Blumental points out, Weinstein has a long record of financial and political support for Israeli causes. Indeed, it was former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert – once of the Israeli Labour Party and with a prison sentence for fraud and bribery on his record – who first recommended Black Cube to Weinstein and apparently made the introductions.

Black Cube has offices in Tel Aviv, Paris and London. Given the company’s admission that it worked on a disgustingly unethical project to protect the man who may well turn out to be Hollywood’s biggest sexual predator ever, it is surely time for the British and French authorities to investigate the “business” activities of this mercenary spy agency. What else, we need to know, is Black Cube up to?

For Those Living Under the Heel of Zionist Oppression And Terror, Every Day is Apocalypto



Like mob lawyers tasked with getting their criminal clients acquitted (despite the fact they know they’re guilty as hell) all can be rest assured powerful Jewish groups in the US and elsewhere–and particularly those constantly loudmouthing about Jewish persecution–have known from the beginning about the now-infamous organ-trafficking business officially sanctioned by the Israeli government. After all–in addition to spying on and then blackmailing certain targeted individuals–it’s the job of these various groups to know what kind of problems might be lurking out on the horizon possibly impacting their most valued client, meaning the Jewish state. Therefore knowing everything–including the most heinous crimes their client has committed–is a prerequisite of sorts if these groups are to successfully engage in the “great commission” for which they were created, meaning damage control for that great criminal headquarters disguising itself as a viable political entity known as Israel.

It’s not difficult to imagine then how thrilled-as-pigs-in-shit these same powerful Jewish groups must have been when–after producing a blockbuster movie portraying the role of Jewish organized crime interests in the crucifixion of Jesus–the world’s most popular actor at the time puts together yet another blockbuster film depicting a brutal, bloodthirsty tribe of savages whose MO is kidnapping powerless people from neighboring villages, half of whom become victims of organ harvesting when their hearts are cut out while the other half are reduced to slaves.

The movie was Apocalypto, produced and directed by Mel Gibson whose career was deliberately and systematically destroyed by Jewish Hollywood as a result of his producing the highest-grossing movie of all time portraying Jesus Christ in the kind of dramatic light in which He truly deserves to be seen, meaning honorable. Like the aforementioned works The Passion and Apocalypto, producing movies with storylines that are 3rd-trimester pregnant with strong cultural and political implications has been Gibson’s signature since making Braveheart, complete with his depiction of William Wallace as a Christ-like revolutionary fighting for his people’s freedom from an oppressive, barbaric ruling system.

Whether deliberate or not, nevertheless Gibson (along with Iranian co-producer/screenwriter Farhad Safinian) stumbled on to something big with the storyline of Apocalypto since–allegorically speaking–it is for all intents and purposes a cleverly masked yet impossible-to-avoid-noting depiction of Zionism 101 and the situation in which the world finds itself these days as a result of what may be delicately termed “Jewish interests”.

For those who have not had the pleasure of watching the movie, the storyline reads like any 21st century headline in which Jewish interests are directly or indirectly involved. It is the time of a brutal, savage civilization (if it can be called that) of South American Natives adept at nothing more than making war and propped up by forced slave labor and held together with the religious glue of human sacrifice. The system cannot function without the work of slaves and in order to keep the population docile and distracted the captured men from neighboring villages–physically without blemish or defect–are dragged onto an altar and in full view of all those in attendance are subjected to a 15th century version of the same gory, grisly business described in newspaper headlines across the world recently, namely the Jewish ritual practice of harvesting Gentile organs. Their hearts are cut out of their bodies, still beating, by the high priests of that society and held high for all to see. Invoking the powers and blessings of the deity upon whose good graces this brutal savage society is dependent for their prosperity, the high priest also appeals to the people, reminding them they are a “chosen” people, a “light among nations” and “destined to rule the world with exhortations such as–

“We are a people of destiny…destined to be the masters of all time, destined to be nearest to the gods…”

And just before plunging the knife (scalpel) into the chest of the victim, exhorts the deity for whom it is being done with–

“Great Kulkulkan, whose fury could scourge the earth to oblivion, let us appease you with this sacrifice…to exalt you in your glory and make our people prosper…

And, predictably, the assembled crowd roars in approval over the suffering occurring, much like the celebrations seen taking place in Israel during Operation Cast Lead as men, women and children in Gaza were bombed into oblivion and incinerated with white phosphorus. There is no soul-searching amidst these people, no fear of any higher power other than the violent god who demands they sacrifice powerless others in appeasing his bloodlust. Naturally, the Mayans love hearing the high priest speak of their specialness, their exceptionalism and their superiority, so much so that not an eek of pity or compassion is heard from the crowd as the victims are literally gutted like fish.

Other scenes are equally reminiscent of the cauldron of misery that has been inflicted upon subject peoples wherever Jewish power has reigned, and particularly in Israel. The peoples–prior to their capture, are content to live their lives with raising their families and living peaceably with their neighbors. As they sleep, their captors invade, depriving them of even the semblance of a fair fight. Those not sacrificed are forced to live in camps where squalor reigns and that might as well be any refugee camp where Palestinians and others are forced to “exist”, complete with raw, flowing sewage, emaciated people and some who have gone mad from the life of privation and suffering they have endured.

In short, Apocalypto is the story of the 20th and 21st centuries in places such as Palestine, Iraq, Afghanistan and anywhere else neighboring peoples have been subjected to the “tender mercies” of God’s chosen people now given a free hand to nostalgically relive the exploits of their forefathers in the Old Testament who invaded, murdered, enslaved, and in all other ways reduced those living within the vicinity of their grasp to a veritable hell on earth. At the same time, fat men such as John Hagee, Hal Lindsey, Pat Robertson and their cohorts on the false prophet circuit who have made billions in decoding and predicting the mystery concerning the end of the world have missed the fact that for those living in the land made holy by the life and death of Jesus Christ every day is Apocalypto.

One can just imagine the pickle this particular movie put these powerful Jewish groups in. Knowing they and their operations were the topic of the film’s plot and being depicted allegorically in the story of the Mayans as they brutally murdered and enslaved their weaker neighbors, at the same time they could not draw attention to these parallels, and particularly not when the major part of the world’s people knew little to nothing about the grisly business of organ harvesting taking place at that time to the “disawareness” of the world’s peoples, save the Palestinians who knew all too well. These same Jewish groups were forced therefore to simply bite their tongues and not breath a word of protest. It does however speak volumes as to why Gibson was obviously targeted in the now-infamous drunk-driving incident where he blamed the Jews for all the wars after being stopped by–surprise, surprise–a Jewish cop.

“Our lands were ravaged…We seek a new beginning…” said a native as he and his people fled the approaching storm of violence, murder and enslavement.

It is a warning to all as the terrible exercise of Jewish power and the devastation it has wrought everywhere is more and more apparent, and something that–if indeed anything survives–will be the cry of those left–

“Our lands were ravaged…We seek a new beginning…”

Israel to Impose Fines for Commemoration of Nakba (Palestinian Defeat)

IMEMC | – –

Israeli occupation authorities are prepared to impose massive fines on Palestinians who commemorate the Israeli occupation of Palestine, a report revealed on Tuesday.

An Arab member of the Knesset said, according to Days of Palestine, that occupation authorities have decided to fine institutions which rent out space for events organized by non-Jewish citizens, which the state regards as illegal.

“The Israeli measure is against the simplest basics of democracy and free speech,” explained Jamal Zahalkeh MK. “It is racist because it targets Arab citizens and their institutions.”

On Sunday, the Israeli Culture and Sport Minister, Miri Regev, and Attorney General Avichai Mendelblit met and agreed on how to implement the so-called “Nakba Law” which first surfaced in 2011.

It stipulates that any institution in receipt of government funds will be fined up to three times of the said funds if it rejects Israel as a “Jewish and democratic” state; incites racism, violence or terrorism; supports armed resistance or terrorist acts against Israel; or commemorates Israel’s “independence day” as Palestinian Nakba Day.

Israel Hayom said that Regev asked for the meeting after reports about an event hosted by a Jaffa theatre in honor of former Joint Arab List MK Basel Ghattas, who was indicted of smuggling telephones to Palestinian security prisoners.

Regev and Mendelblit, the newspaper said, agreed that complaints about alleged violations of the Nakba Law, by public institutions, would be passed on to the finance ministry, which would have a week to respond on whether a given incident in fact violates the law.

Dutch Furious as Israel seizes Solar Panels donated to Palestinians

Ma’an News Agency | – –

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — The Netherlands has reacted with outrage after Israeli authorities seized dozens of solar panels in a remote occupied West Bank village that were donated by the Dutch government.

Israeli forces confiscated the solar panels in the isolated village of Jubbet al-Dhib east of Bethlehem on Wednesday that were installed last year, under the pretext that they were built without the nearly impossible to obtain permits required by Israel to develop in Area C — the 61 percent of the West Bank under full Israeli military control.


report Saturday by Israeli news daily Haaretz cited a statement from the Dutch Foreign Ministry, that said the Dutch government lodged a protest with Israel over the confiscation of the electricity equipment, which was said to be a hybrid power system of both diesel and solar power.

The Dutch government-donated electrification project in the southern Bethlehem region cost about 500,000 euros, 350,00 euros of which went to Jubbet al-Dhib, according to the report.
The Dutch Foreign Ministry has requested Israel return the equipment and is “currently assessing what next steps can be taken,” the ministry’s statement to Haaretz said.
However, according to Haaretz, “A source close to Dutch diplomats in the West Bank told Haaretz that these softly worded statements cover the anger brewing in the government of the Netherlands, a close friend of Israel’s, at the damage to the humanitarian project.”
Ma’an reported at the time that 60 solar panels were seized, though Haaretz said that in fact 96 panels were taken down, in addition to other electronic equipment of the system that was also seized, which was funded by the Dutch and installed about nine months ago by the Israeli-Palestinian organization Comet-ME, which builds water and energy systems for Palestinians.
According to the report, Comet-ME implemented the project with the assistance of the town’s women’s committee using environmentally and socially sustainable methods.
The mayor of the village told Ma’an at the time of the raid that the solar panels were confiscated as well as destroyed, but Haaretz cited Comet-ME as clarifying that items were taken by Israeli forces intact, while equipment that was not seized was destroyed by Israeli forces and left behind.
The cost of the confiscated and damaged equipment is valued at 40,000 euros, though the material and social damage is “much greater, as their seizure immediately resulted in the loss of power for the 30 families in the village and its public buildings,” Haaretz wrote.
On the day of the raid, a spokesperson for COGAT, the Israeli agency responsible enforcing Israeli policies in the occupied territory, told Ma’an that stop-work orders had been delivered for the equipment, however, according to Haaretz, orders to cease construction and confiscation orders were given to the residents only during the raid itself, and not prior to the raid, “as is required by planning and construction laws.”
“Had orders been given in advance the village and its representatives could have taken administrative or legal action,” the report stressed.
“We emphasize that the village has other electricity sources,” COGAT also told Ma’an at the time. According to Haaretz, this likely refered to “a couple of noisy and polluting generators from aid organizations, which supply power for three hours a day,” which were received after Israel confiscated a solar-powered public lighting system in 2009.
Some 150 Palestinians reside in Jubbet al-Dhib, which is neighbored by the illegal Noqedim settlement — home to Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman — as well as the illegal El David settlement, in addition a number of Israeli outposts, that, despite being illegal even under Israeli domestic law, still enjoy connection to the power grid and access to other infrastructure, according to Haaretz.
Meanwhile, all Israeli settlements in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem, are considered illegal under international law.
“In order to contribute in reducing the suffering of the people of the village, help them to stay in their lands by protecting it from the ambitions of the Israeli occupation to confiscate it, the idea of using solar technology to light up the village streets, as well as lighting the village gathering center (the mosque) was considered,” ARIJ wrote in a village profile in 2010.
However, Israeli authorities have continued to refuse to grant a license for the project, forcing residents and NGOs to carry on with the solar panel installation without Israeli permission.
“The Israeli civil administration’s decision not to grant a license to implement the project of solar energy technology in Jubbet al-Dhib village means depriving the Palestinian residents of their most simple human rights of access to the most basic rights such as: education, health, the right to work, and the sense of humanity,” the report said.
ARIJ affirmed that the Israeli restrictions represented a violation of international human rights law and “confirms the continuation of Israeli policy towards Palestinians to increase their suffering by causing people to leave their homes, and controls Palestinian lands in order to expand Israeli settlements.”
“This policy does not only include Jubbet al-Dhib village, but almost ten Palestinian villages, which suffer from the lack of services and development projects,” the group wrote at the time.
More than 300 structures demolished by Israeli authorities in 2016 were erected with support of international organizations or with the financial help of the European Union, according to an Israeli military official cited in a report by Israeli newspaper The Jerusalem Post.
The official told The Jerusalem Post that a new procedure was put in force in 2016, which allows Israeli authorities to demolish a structure built without Israeli permits within 60 days of its construction without legal proceedings.
In 2016, Palestinians experienced the highest number of Israeli demolitions recorded in a year since rights groups began recording the incidents.

  1. And with one stroke Israel makes 10,000 more BDS supporters. I think someone has put a curse on Israelis that they act crazy until it’s too late to save their Jewish state.

  2. Are there separate standards for Israelis and every other nation on earth? Are not ethnic ghettos and apartheid illegal since 1945?

  3. The hatred and hypocrisy of the Israeli government seems to have no limit. It seems useless to criticize their actions in the occupied territories. Why should they be expected to listen to anyone on earth when they openly disobey a commandment delivered to them by God himself in the Torah of Moses.

    “The stranger that dwells with you shall be unto you as one born among you, and you shall love him as yourself; for you were [once] strangers [too,] in the land of Egypt: I am the Lord your God.” –Leviticus (Vayikra) 19:34

    The Nakba: Israel’s ethnic cleansing operation to create a Jewish majority in Palestine

    The Nakba: Israel’s ethnic cleansing operation to create a Jewish majority in Palestine

    Today marks the 69th anniversary of the Palestinian Nakba, which means “catastrophe.”

    The founding of Israel as a “Jewish State” was preceded by a massive ethnic cleansing operation to remove as many of the Muslim and Christian inhabitants as possible.

    During Israel’s “war of independence,” over 750,000 Palestinians were driven from their homes, never to be allowed to return. Hundreds of towns were razed; villagers were massacred. Their very existence on the land was nearly wiped from history as Israel built new towns over the ruins and gave them Hebrew names.

    This devastating humanitarian disaster is given almost no attention by in American history books or by the mainstream news media even though it is crucial in understanding the ongoing violence in Israel-Palestine and the Middle East in general.

    Palestinian refugees and their descendants living in the West Bank and Gaza continue to live under an Israeli military occupation funded by American taxpayers to the tune of $10 million a day.

    Hundreds of Palestinians political prisoners in Israeli jails continue their mass hunger strike for humane living conditions that began on April 17. Israeli forces continue to kill Palestinians with impunity, killing four Palestinians this month alone, including a teenage girl and a young fisherman today in Gaza.

    It is imperative that we educate our communities and demand an end to the use of our tax dollars for killing and destruction.

    Here are some ways you can do so:

    • Share our short summary “How Palestine Became Israel” article with people who are new to the issue.
    • Order a Nakba Pack or Nakba Pack Lite, which contain various printed educational cards and brochures that you can distribute at events, churches, libraries, etc.
    • Watch and share Occupation 101, an award-winning documentary film on the root causes of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
    • Post about the Nakba on Facebook and Twitter.
    • Check to see what your local newspaper wrote about this tragedy, and write a letter to the editor with the facts they omitted.
    • Call your Congressperson and ask them to oppose aid to Israel until it complies with international law concerning Palestinian human rights.
    • Learn about the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions movement and get involved with a local chapter.

Israelis to evict entire Bedouin Community from Jerusalem

IMEMC News | – –

The Bedouin community in al-Baba Mountain, in the town of Al-Eizariya, occupied East Jerusalem, stands steadfast in face of Israeli plans which aim to evict them.

According to Al Ray Palestinian Media Agency, not even the children are willing to wave their rights, repeating that al-Baba Mountain is “our land and we will still here.”

The Bedouin resident Khaled al-Basha, 45, said that they were shocked with the Israeli decision to evict the community as a whole.

Al-Basha described the decision as unjust and merciless.

The Israeli civil administration notified the community 10 days ago, of their impending eviction from their houses in Al-Eizariya, where 57 Palestinian Bedouin families (with a total of 300 members) reside.

The chairman of the Committee of Services of al-Baba Mountain, Attallah Mazarah, warned of the eviction order, which seeks to deport the entire community. He added that Israeli occupation authorities have already demolished some houses in the community, but the decision now states the intention to evict all.

He stressed that the inhabitants of Al-Baba, along with all Bedouin communities, will not accept a new deportation from their lands.

A lawyer of the community filed a petition with the Israeli civil administration, against the decision, last Wednesday, but the administration did not respond.

Mazarah called on the Palestinian Authority to adopt a strict stance against the Israeli policy.

An official from the Coalition for Palestinian Rights in Jerusalem, Zakaria Ouda, said that the new Israeli measures in al-Baba are a part of the same old scheme which aims to evict the Bedouin communities, and to establish E1 settlement, which will include 12,000 settling units.

Ouda explained that the bigger plan seeks to connect 8 settlements in occupied Jerusalem, separating the northern parts of the West Bank from the south. The plan will, n effect, evict and isolate many Palestinian neighborhoods.

“It is part of the Israeli plans that are named by the Israeli occupation government as ‘Greater Jerusalem’, whose borders extend to the settlements of Gush Etzion in the south, Ma’ale Adumim to the east, and Giv’at Ze’ev in the north,” he said.

This is reportedly part of a major plan aimed at adopting the policy of ethnic cleansing within Jerusalem’s Palestinian population, in order to create a Jewish majority.

Oudah called on the Palestinian Authority to make use of its relations with other countries to stop this plan, and to exert pressure on Israel to end policies which seek to expel Palestinians from occupied Jerusalem.

The National Office for the Defense of Land and the Resistance of Settlements also warned of the plans for settlement and displacement in Jerusalem.

It was explained, in a documentary report issued Saturday, that the plan of evicting the Bedouin communities is one of the most dangerous ethnic cleansing plans in occupied Jerusalem.

The report stated that, if the Israeli occupation succeeds in evicting the Bedouin community, it will be able to isolate Jerusalem totally, from its Palestinian connection.

The Beduoin communities in occupied Negev were displaced from their lands in Tal Arar, Negev, in 1948, and have been residing in Palestinian lands near occupied Jerusalem. He noted that there are aerial photographs from the 1960s and 70s which prove their presence in al-Baba Mountain and all the Bedouin communities.

Israeli occupation authorities built the apartheid wall in 2003, leading to the reduction of livestock and water sources upon which the Bedouin community of al-Baba Mountain relied .

The demolition process has been raging in al-Baba compound for the last four years, reaching 52 demolitions, including a kindergarten, and involving the confiscation of residents’ vehicles, preventing them from renovating their homes and any expansion of the population.

The Israeli Civil Administration offered the residents of Jabal al-Baba material temptations to transfer to them the so-called “Jerusalem Gate” on the land of Abu Dis residents, but they were refused. The last attempt was about a month ago, when Israeli forces demolished four houses and tried to get signatures from the population, to find an alternative for them. But, the citizens refused, and, so, Israeli authorities began issuing eviction orders and deportations for the entire community.

Israel argues confiscation of occupied land benefits Palestinians

Ma’an News Agency | – –

BETHLEHEM (Ma’an) — The Israeli government defended the legality of the outpost “Regularization law” at the Israeli Supreme Court on Monday, and said that the expropriation of Palestinian-owned land would benefit Palestinians because they would receive financial compensation for it, reportedly describing Palestinian laws prohibiting the sale of land to Israelis as “racist.”

The hearing came in response to two petitions filed by human rights groups to the court demanding to strike down the law, which would pave the way for the retroactive legalization of dozens of illegal Israeli settler outposts.

The Regularization law, passed by the Israeli parliament in February, states that any settlements built in the occupied West Bank “in good faith” — without knowledge that the land upon which it was built was privately owned by Palestinians — could be officially recognized by Israel pending minimal proof of governmental support in its establishment and some form of compensation to the Palestinian landowners.

Israeli NGO Peace Now said in a statement on Monday that in response to the petitions — one of which was submitted by Peace Now and fellow rights groups Yesh Din and ACRI — the government justified the law by saying that the Palestinian landowners would receive monetary compensation.

“The government even went as far as to claim that the Palestinian landowners whose land was stolen by Israeli citizens actually benefit from the law, since they actually want to sell their lands, but can’t do so due to Palestinian laws,” Peace Now said, adding that the response also claimed that the illegal settlements in the West Bank “are a national interest that justifies confiscation of private lands.”

Israel also claimed that Palestinian laws that prohibit selling land to Israelis were “racist,” ACRI said in a statement.

According to ACRI, the Israeli state’s response argued that the parliament, or Knesset, can impose law in the occupied territory to address “problems faced by Israelis” and that settlers were considered a “local population.”

The state of Israel responded to arguments that imposing laws in the occupied territory was unjustified, due to the fact that Palestinians in the West Bank cannot vote for the Knesset, saying the issue was “irrelevant, since Palestinians also do not vote for the Military Commander who is enacting laws in the West Bank,” ACRI reported.

The rights groups had argued in the petition that the law was not just a contravention of international law but unconstitutional for Israel, as it “clearly violates the basic law: human dignity and liberty, while forcing authorities to expropriate rights of land ownership and usage from Palestinians for an unlimited time period.”

“The government attempts to present Israeli citizens, who are directly involved in land theft of Palestinians, as deserving a reward for their participation in the thievery,” the Peace Now said.

“Additionally, the law violates international humanitarian law, the laws of occupation and other international conventions signed by Israel, which oblige the state of Israel to protect the rights of residents of the occupied territory and forbid the expropriation of their property for any use by an immediate security need,” the petitioners said.

“Up until today, Israeli laws in the West Bank applied only to Israeli citizens on a personal basis. Passing the law is a clear act of applying sovereignty and thereby it is an act of illegal annexation.”

ACRI wrote that the Israeli state’s response “completely ignores the extent of the continuous unlawful violations of rights of Palestinian landowners caused by illegal takeovers of their land for settlement purposes. It expresses Israeli policies to retroactively legalize illegal Israeli construction in the West Bank in contravention to Israeli law as well as International Humanitarian Law, while rewarding the perpetrators who had illegally taken over land not belonging to them.”

Since the occupation of the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, in 1967, between 500,000 and 600,000 Israelis have moved into Israeli settlements in occupied Palestinian territory, in violation of international law.

The estimated 196 government recognized Israeli settlements scattered across the Palestinian territory are all considered illegal under international law.

While members of the international community have rested the solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict on the discontinuation of illegal Israeli settlements and the establishment of a two-state solution, Israeli leaders have instead shifted further to the right, with more than 50 percent of the ministers in the current Israeli government publicly stating their opposition to a Palestinian state.

Why Do Buddhists Avoid Attachment?

“Attachment” May Not Mean What You Think It Does

Buddha With Birds

The principle of non-attachment is key to understanding and practicing Buddhist religious philosophy, but like so many concepts in Buddhism, it can confuse and even discourage many newcomers to the philosophy.

Such a reaction is common to people, especially from the West, as they begin to explore Buddhism. If this philosophy that is supposed to be about joy, they wonder, why does it spend so much time saying that life is inherently full of suffering (dukkha), that non-attachment is a goal, and that a recognition of emptiness (​shunyata) is a step toward enlightenment?

All those things sound discouraging, even depressing at first glance.

But Buddhism is indeed a philosophy of joy, and the confusion among newcomers is partly because the words from the Sanskrit language do not have exact translations in English, and partly because the personal frame of reference for Westerners is much, much different than that of Eastern cultures.

So let’s explore the concept of non-attachment as used in Buddhist philosophy. To understand it, though, you’ll need to understand its place within the overall structure of basic Buddhist philosophy and practice. The basic premises of Buddhism are known as the Four Noble Truths. 


The First Noble Truth: Life is “Suffering.”
The Buddha taught that life as we currently know is full of suffering, the closest English translation of the word dukkha. The word has many connotations, including “unsatisfactoriness,” which is perhaps the translation that might be better suited.

So to say that life is suffering means, really, that there is a vague feeling that things are not entirely satisfactory, not quite right. A recognition of this vague dissatisfaction and suffering is what constitutes what Buddhism called the First Noble Truth.

It is possible to know the reason for this “suffering” or dissatisfaction, though, and it comes from three sources.

First, we are dissatisfied because we don’t really understand the true nature of things. This confusion is most often translated as ignorance or avidya, and its principle feature is that we aren’t aware of the interconnectedness of all things. We imagine, for example, that there is a “self” or “I” that exists independently and separately from all other phenomena. This is perhaps the central misconception identified by Buddhism, and it leads to the next two reasons for dukkha or suffering.

The Second Noble Truth: Here Are the Reasons for Our Suffering
Our reaction to this misunderstanding about our separateness in the world leads to either attachment/grasping/clinging on the one hand, or aversion/hatred on the other hand. It’s important to know that the Sanskrit word for the first concept, Upadana, does not have an exact translation in English; its literal meaning is “fuel,” though it is often translated to mean “attachment.” Similarly, the Sanskrit word for aversion/hatred, devesha, also does not have a literal English translation. Together, these three problems—ignorance, clinging/attachment and aversion—are known as the Three Poisons, and a recognition of them forms the Second Noble Truth.

Now, perhaps, you can begin to see where non-attachment may come into the picture since we will later see that it is an antidote to one of the Three Poisons.

The Third Noble Truth: It Is Possible to End the Suffering
The Buddha also taught that it is possible NOT to suffer. This is central to the joyful optimism of Buddhism—the recognition that a cessation to dukkha is possible. The essence of this cessation is nothing more than to relinquish the delusion and ignorance that fuel both the attachment/clinging and the aversion/hatred that makes life so unsatisfying. The cessation of that suffering has a name that is quite well known to almost everyone: Nirvana.

The Fourth Noble Truth: Here Is the Path to Ending the Suffering
Finally, the Buddha taught a series of practical rules and methods for moving from a condition of ignorance/attachment/aversion (dukkha) to a permanent state of joy/satisfaction (nirvana).

Among those methods is the famous Eight-Fold Path, a set of practical advisory recommendations for living, designed to move practitioners along the route to nirvana.


Non-attachment, then, is really an antidote to the attachment/clinging problem described in the Second Noble Truth. For if attachment/clinging is a condition of finding life unsatisfactory, it stands to reason that nonattachment is a condition conducive to satisfaction with life, a condition of nirvana.

It is important to note, though, that the advice is not to detach or un-attach from people in your life or from your experiences, but rather to simply recognize the non-attachment that is inherent to begin with. This is a rather key difference between Buddhist and other religious philosophies. While other religions seek to achieve some state of grace through hard work and active repudiation, Buddhism teaches that we are inherently joyful and that it is really a matter of simply surrendering and relinquishing our misguided habits and preconceptions that will allow us to experience the essential Buddahood that is within us all.

When we simply relax the illusion that we have a “self” that exists separately and independently from other people and phenomenon, we suddenly recognize that there is no need to detach or un-attach, because we have always been interconnected with all things at all times. Much the way it is an illusion to call the various oceans separate bodies of water when in fact they are part of one large ocean, it is similarly an illusion to imagine that we exist in a distinct separateness from the rest of the world.

Zen teacher John Daido Loori said,

“[A]ccording to the Buddhist point of view, non-attachment is exactly the opposite of separation. You need two things in order to have attachment: the thing you’re attaching to, and the person who’s attaching. In non-attachment, on the other hand, there’s unity. There’s unity because there’s nothing to attach to. If you have unified with the whole universe, there’s nothing outside of you, so the notion of attachment becomes absurd. Who will attach to what?”

To live in non-attachment means that we recognize there was never anything to attach or cling to in the first place. And for those who can truly recognize this, it is indeed a position of joyfulness.

Did You Know That in 2012 Bill Gates Agreed to Fund Chemtrail Project?


This was back in 2012…

Geo-engineers are finally coming out of the “chemtrail” closet, as reports are now emerging about deliberate plans in the works to dump untold tons of sulfate chemicals into the atmosphere for the purported purpose of fighting so-called “global warming.”

The U.K.’s Guardian and others are reporting that a multi-million dollar research fund, which just so happens to have been started and funded by Microsoft founder and vaccine enthusiast Bill Gates, is being used to fund the project.

A large balloon hovering at 80,000 feet over Fort Sumner, New Mexico, will release the sulfates into the atmosphere within the next year [i.e. 2013].

The stated purpose for this massive release of toxic sulfate particles is that doing so will allegedly reflect sunlight back into the atmosphere, and thus cool the planet. But many environmental groups and advocates of common sense are decrying the idea as dangerous, and one that could result in permanent damage to ecosystems all across the globe.

“Impacts include the potential for further damage to the ozone layer, and disruption of rainfall, particularly in tropical and subtropical regions, potentially threatening the food supplies of billions of people,” said Pat Mooney, Executive Director of the ETC Group, a Canadian environmental protection group.

“It will do nothing to decrease levels of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere or halt ocean acidification. And solar geo-engineering is likely to increase the risk of climate-related international conflict, given that the modeling to date shows it poses greater risks to the global south.”

But the Gates-backed cohort is persistent in its efforts to geo-graffiti the world, as its scientists insist that governments are not doing enough to fight back against the supposed environment impacts of global warming.

If governments refuse to implement high enough carbon taxes to eliminate greenhouse gases, in other words, then Gates and Co. believes it has no choice but to “save the planet” by polluting it with sulfate particles.

Spraying the skies with sulfate particles will destroy the planet faster than ‘global warming‘ ever could,

Sulfate particles are toxic, though, and constitute the very same type of ambient particulate matter (PM) that the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) considers to be a noxious air pollutant.

Deliberately spraying the skies with tiny particles composed of any material, for that matter, is hazardous both to respiratory health in humans and animals, as well as to water sources, soils, and other delicate environmental resources.

“Sulfate particles from acid rain can cause harm to the health of marine life in the rivers and lakes it contaminates, and can result in mortality,” says an online water pollution guide.

A University of Washington (UW) report also explains that sulfate particles “contribute to acid rain, cause lung irritation, and have been a main culprit in causing the haze that obscures a clear view of the Grand Canyon.”

Blocking the sun with reflective particles will also deprive humans of natural sunlight exposure, which is a primary source for naturally generating health-promoting vitamin D in the body.

So once again, Bill Gates is at the helms of a project that seeks to control the climate in artificial ways using toxic chemicals, an endeavor that is sure to create all sorts of potentially irreversible problems for humanity and the planet.

Agenda 21

UN Pushes Population Control Agenda

Written by  

According to the United Nations, the earth’s population will reach seven billion by October 31. For the world body, however, that is not something to celebrate. In fact, the UN Population Fund is focused on ways to decrease the world’s population, and has selected October 31, “7 Billion Day,” as a day to raise awareness about “sustainable development.”

The United Nations has openly proclaimed that the world’s increasing population is a cause for concern. Likewise, the UN has advocated for its Agenda 21 program that seeks to bring about “sustainable development.”

On February 10, The New American’s William Jasper wrote of Agenda 21:

The UN’s Agenda 21 is definitely comprehensive and global — breathtakingly so. Agenda 21 proposes a global regime that will monitor, oversee, and strictly regulate our planet’s oceans, lakes, streams, rivers, aquifers, sea beds, coastlands, wetlands, forests, jungles, grasslands, farmland, deserts, tundra, and mountains. It even has a whole section on regulating and “protecting” the atmosphere. It proposes plans for cities, towns, suburbs, villages, and rural areas. It envisions a global scheme for healthcare, education, nutrition, agriculture, labor, production, and consumption — in short, everything; there is nothing on, in, over, or under the Earth that doesn’t fall within the purview of some part of Agenda 21.

Agenda 21 is yet another means to achieve ultimate control. Additionally, as noted by LewRockwell.com, a key component of Agenda 21’s sustainable development is population control, since Agenda 21 seeks to achieve reduced consumption, social equity and the preservation and restoration of biodiversity. Proponents of Agenda 21 and sustainable development believe every societal decision should be based on environmental impact, including land use, education, and population control.

A United Nations resolution adopted by the UN General Assembly specifically designed to implement Agenda 21 reads:

…. population growth rates have been declining globally, largely as a result of expanded basic education and health care. That trend is projected to lead to a stable world population in the middle of the twenty-first century… The current decline in population growth rates must be further promoted through national and international policies that promote economic development, social development, environmental protection, and poverty eradication, particularly the further expansion of basic education, with full and equal access for girls and women, and health care, including reproductive health care, including both family planning and sexual health, consistent with the report of the International Conference on Population and Development.

Likewise, the March 2009 U.N. Population Division Policy brief began with the statement, “What would it take to accelerate fertility decline in the least developed countries?”

The same theme was prevalent in the 2009 World Population Report released by the United Nations Population Fund entitled “Facing a Changing World: Women, Population and Climate.” That document made a number of frightening assertions:

  • “Each birth results not only in the emissions attributable to that person in his or her lifetime, but also the emissions of all his or her descendants. Hence, the emissions savings from intended or planned births multiply with time.”
  • “No human is genuinely “carbon neutral,” especially when all greenhouse gases are figured into the equation. Therefore, everyone is part of the problem, so everyone must be part of the solution in some way.”
  • “Strong family planning programmes are in the interests of all countries for greenhouse-gas concerns as well as for broader welfare concerns.”

Many of our own lawmakers and members of the Obama administration have openly called for population control. Former vice president Al Gore, for example, made the following statement regarding population control:

“One of the things we could do about it is to change the technologies, to put out less of this pollution, to stabilize the population, and one of the principle ways of doing that is to empower and educate girls and women. You have to have ubiquitous availability of fertility management so women can choose how many children have, the spacing of the children.

You have to lift child survival rates so that parents feel comfortable having small families and most important – you have to educate girls and empower women. And that’s the most powerful leveraging factor, and when that happens, then the population begins to stabilize and societies begin to make better choices and more balanced choices.”

Maurice Strong, head of the United Nations Environmental Program, alluded to population control and more when he stated in 1990, “What if a small group of these world leaders were to conclude that the principle risk to the earth comes from the actions of the rich countries? In order to save the planet, the group decides: Isn’t the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn’t it our responsibility to bring this about?”

President Obama’s Science Adviser John Holdren wrote a book in 1977 called Ecoscience in which he indicated support for forced abortions, sterilization through infertility drugs or through the nation’s drinking water or food, having babies seized from single mothers or teen mothers and given away to couples, requiring that “people who contribute to social deterioration…be required by law to exercise reproductive responsibility” (i.e. more forced abortions or sterilizations), and creating a transnational “Planetary Regime” that controls the global economy and dictates the details of American lives by use of an armed international police force.

Holdren went so far as to say that the United States Constitution permits population control, “Indeed, it has been concluded that compulsory population-control laws, even including laws requiring compulsory abortion, could be sustained under the existing Constitution if the population crisis became sufficiently severe to endanger the society.”

Population control has also found support amongst other prominent Americans, including Microsoft’s Bill Gates, U.S. Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Sierra Club Director David Brower, Planned Parenthood Founder Margaret Sanger, and David Rockefeller.

Given the United Nation Population Fund’s push for decreased population, and the surprising level of support it has received within our own federal government, groups like the John Birch Society are pushing to defund the UNPF. According to the JBS:

The propaganda from the UNFPA (known as the United Nations Fund for Population Activities from 1969 to 1987) indicates that its programs do nothing more than “reduce poverty and ensure that every pregnancy is wanted, every birth safe, every young person is free of HIV/AIDS, and every girl and woman is treated with dignity and respect.” And how does the UNFPA accomplish such lofty-sounding goals? By promoting “family planning,” access to abortions, and instituting sex-ed programs, especially for youth.…

So, instead of promoting policies that would delay marriage and childbearing for the poverty-stricken of many countries, the UNFPA encourages promiscuity. Instead of abstinence training, a sexual revolution is advanced. And, instead of telling teens the truth about free sex, they hype the glories of condom use that afford little or no protection from sexually transmitted diseases rampant in many third world countries. Shockingly, the UN’sanswer to gender discrimination and sex selection brought about by the one-child policy is “safe” abortions.

Fortunately, the U.S. House of Representatives Relations Committee has introduced HR 2059, which defunds the United Nations Population Fund. The legislation has 83 cosponsors and is said to save taxpayers $400 million.

What’s clear is that the American people must act quickly as civilized nations are beginning to act in accordance with the UN’s drive for population control. In the United Kingdom, for example, the Daily Mail reports that thousands of “abnormal babies” are being selectively aborted each year. This is expected behavior in a world where population control takes center stage.


New Vaccines Will Permanently Alter Your DNA

by Jon Rappoport, guest writerThe reference is the New York Times, 3/9/15, “Protection Without a Vaccine.” It describes the frontier of research. Here are key quotes that illustrate the use of synthetic genes to “protect against disease,” while changing the genetic makeup of humans.

This is not science fiction:

“By delivering synthetic genes into the muscles of the [experimental] monkeys, the scientists are essentially re-engineering the animals to resist disease.”

“’The sky’s the limit,’ said Michael Farzan, an immunologist at Scripps and lead author of the new study.”

“The first human trial based on this strategy — called immunoprophylaxis by gene transfer, or I.G.T. — is underway, and several new ones are planned.” [That was nearly two years ago.]

“I.G.T. is altogether different from traditional vaccination. It is instead a form of gene therapy. Scientists isolate the genes that produce powerful antibodies against certain diseases and then synthesize artificial versions. The genes are placed into viruses and injected into human tissue, usually muscle.”

Here is the punchline:

“The viruses invade human cells with their DNA payloads, and the synthetic gene is incorporated into the recipient’s own DNA. If all goes well, the new genes instruct the cells to begin manufacturing powerful antibodies.”

Read that again: “the synthetic gene is incorporated into the recipient’s own DNA.”

Alteration of the human genetic makeup.

Not just a “visit.” Permanent residence. And once a person’s DNA is changed, doesn’t it follow that he/she will pass on that change to the next generation of children, and so on, down the line?

The Times article taps Dr. David Baltimore for an opinion:

“Still, Dr. Baltimore says that he envisions that some people might be leery of a vaccination strategy that means altering their own DNA, even if it prevents a potentially fatal disease.”

Yes, some people might be leery. If they have two or three working brain cells.

This is genetic roulette with a loaded gun.

And the further implications are clear. Vaccines can be used as a cover for the injections of any and all genes, whose actual purpose is re-engineering humans.

The emergence of this Frankenstein technology is paralleled by a shrill push to mandate vaccines, across the board, for both children and adults. The pressure and propaganda are planet-wide.

If you’re going to alter humans, for example, to make many of them more docile and weak, and some of them stronger, in order to restructure society, you want everyone under the umbrella. No exceptions. No exemptions.

The freedom and the right to refuse vaccines has always been vital. It is more vital than ever now.



Louis-Ferdinand Destouches, pen name Celine, (1894 -1961), a French physician,

 is “considered one of the most influential writers of the twentieth century.”  – Wikipedia

Less well known, Celine was an outspoken “anti-Semite.” In this excerpt from his 1937 book“Trifles for a Massacre,” he maintains that Jewish power and influence is the only subject that matters. The fact that it is taboo indicates the takeover (facilitated by traitorous Freemason shills) is complete. Was Celine  a “hater” or, in fact, a patriot and realist?

“That which effectively characterizes “progress” in various societies, over the course of centuries, is the rise of the Jew to power, to all of the powers… All of the revolutions have given him an increasingly important status… The Jew who was less than nothing in the time of Nero, is in the process of becoming everything..”   


No doubt Mr. Celine would be accused or charged with ‘hate speech’ for telling the truth about the Jews today.

In all candor, …those who have returned from Russia [are] full of details concerning inconsequential items, while avoiding the essential: they say nothing about the Jew.

The Jew is a taboo in all of the books which they present us. Gide, Citrine, Dorgelès, Serge, etc., [his contemporaries] don’t say a word about it…

Therefore they babble… They give the impression of having busted-up the violin, of having overturned the dish, but in reality they have broken nothing at all…

At the present time, the only important thing for the man of affairs, the literary intellectual, the film director, the financier, the industrialist, the politician (for whom this is most important) is not to run afoul of the Jews. 

The Jews are our masters – here and there, in Russia, in England, in America, everywhere! …Be the clown, the insurgent, the intrepid, the anti-bourgeois, the fierce righter of wrongs…the Jew doesn’t give a damn! It is entertainment…Gibberings!

But don’t touch upon the Jewish question, or you will be quickly put to the fire… Quick as a shot, you will be made to relent, one way or another…The Jew is the King of Gold, at the Bank and in Court… By proxy or in person. He owns everything…the Press…the Theater… the Radio…the Chamber of Deputies…the Senate…the Police…over here, and over there… The great inventors of the Bolshevik tyranny have elicited a thousand cries of horror… that is well understood.

They strike terror into the heart, yet are never, ever seen as pointing out the proliferation of Kikes, nor as adding-up to a global conspiracy… An odd blindness… (at the same time it is necessary to bone-up on Hollywood, its secrets, its intentions, its masters, its universal hype, its incredible market of world-wide stupefaction…  

Stalin moreover is nothing but an executioner – of enormous scope, of course, thoroughly endowed with conspiratorial virtues, a Bluebeard for a Marshal, a formidable scarecrow, indispensable in Russian folklore…

But in the end nothing but a stupid executioner, a human dinosaur for the Russian masses who can be made to kowtow only at that price. But Stalin is only the executor of lowly deeds, and is very obedient, like Roosevelt or Lebrun, precisely, in cruelty. [Lebrun, French President (1932-40.)

Revolution is another story! Infinitely complex! Everything existing as structures within structures, and behind the scenes. And in that backstage are the Jews in command, the absolute masters. Stalin is only a front-man, like Lebrun, like Roosevelt, like Clemenceau.


The success of the Bolshevik Revolution can be understood, in its long run, only as having been of the Jews, for the Jews, and by the Jews… Kerensky competently prepared the way for Trotsky, who prepared the way for the current Comintern (Jewish), Jews in matter of sect and race, Jewish racists (as they all are), the armed circumcised avengers of the Jewish passion, of Jewish vindictiveness, of Jewish despotism. The Jews egged the wretched of the earth, those stultified by castle and clod, on to the assault on the Romanov citadel…and while they threw the slaves into the assault upon all that perturbed them, with armaments going off and things collapsing here, there and everywhere, those stultified by the clod, the hammer and the sickle, after a moment of drunken jabber, have quickly fallen back under new bosses, new bureaucrats and a new, increasingly Jewish, slavery.

That which effectively characterizes “progress” in various societies, over the course of centuries, is the rise of the Jew to power, to all of the powers… All of the revolutions have given him an increasingly important status… The Jew who was less than nothing in the time of Nero, is in the process of becoming everything.

In Russia, this miracle has been accomplished… In France, almost… How can it be recruited, and reformed into a Soviet of the USSR? With workers, manual workers (to the second generation, at least) as most enthusiastic Stakhanovites, and then the intellectuals, Jewish bureaucrats, exclusively Jewish… No more white intellectuals! The possibilities for white critics no longer exist!… This is the prime directive implied in every Communist revolution. The Jews can remain in power only on the condition that all of the Party intellectuals be Jews, or at least be furiously Judaized…espoused to Jewesses, half- breeds, half- and quarter-Jews…(these latter are more rabid than the others…).

For the sake of good form, various well-enstooged Aryan figures are tolerated, for the parade before foreigners… (genre Tolstoy) brought into perfect submission by favor and fear. All of the non-Jewish intellectuals, that is to say all of those who must not be communists, Jewish and communist being for me synonymous, have all been hounded to death…

Their conviction has been made! and strongly made! However nightmarishly disgusting one might find Russia, it nonetheless represents the setting into motion of the world revolution, the prelude to the great completely Jewish night! of Israel’s great triumph!

You can sprinkle whatever you want over tons and tons of paper, concerning Soviet horrors, you can issue, wad-up, and strike your pages, but however much your pen attacks and labors with indignation, it will only make them laugh all the more…

They will find you increasingly blind and obtuse… When you proceed everywhere to proclaim that the USSR is a hell…you will still be wasting your breath…

But it will give them less pleasure when you proceed no longer to pretend, and that it is the Jews who are the devils of the new hell! and that all of the goys are the damned. But in spite of that effort at reclamation, you can be certain of the massive propaganda…(and the Ural mines are not yet exhausted)… It’s a little more complicated when you sell-out on the party line, the Jewish party line. In the end, it’s a little bit more costly… That’s all.

From Wikipedia:

Image result for Trifles for a MassacreCéline’s literary legacy was characterized by a virulent antisemitism, racism and bigotry. His Trifles for a Massacre, is an endless litany critical of Jews and their influence on French society. Both The School of Cadavers and The Fine Mess contain antisemitic themes. These anti-Semitic books have been banned in France and have not been reprinted.

After Germany’s defeat, Céline fled to Denmark (1945). Named a collaborator, he was convicted in absentia (1950) in France, sentenced to one year of imprisonment and declared a national disgrace. He was subsequently granted amnesty and returned to France in 1951.

Following his return from exile, he lamented his ruined reputation but never voiced regret for his antisemitic works, rather preferring to make additional statements of Holocaust denial, stating that “white Aryan Christian civilization” had ended with Stalingrad and that early in his life he had recognized the Jews as “exploiters.”

In 2011, the 50th anniversary of Céline’s death Frederic Mitterrand the French Minister of Culture and Communication announced that Céline would be excluded from the a list of 500 French Culture Icons to be honored that year because of his antisemitic writings.


Harvard Immunologist: Unvaccinated Children Pose ZERO Risk to Anyone and Here’s Why

Dear Legislator:

My name is Tetyana Obukhanych. I hold a PhD in Immunology. I am writing this letter in the hope that it will correct several common misperceptions about vaccines in order to help you formulate a fair and balanced understanding that is supported by accepted vaccine theory and new scientific findings.

Do unvaccinated children pose a higher threat to the public than the vaccinated?

It is often stated that those who choose not to vaccinate their children for reasons of conscience endanger the rest of the public, and this is the rationale behind most of the legislation to end vaccine exemptions currently being considered by federal and state legislators country-wide.

You should be aware that the nature of protection afforded by many modern vaccines – and that includes most of the vaccines recommended by the CDC for children – is not consistent with such a statement.

I have outlined below the recommended vaccines that cannot prevent transmission of disease either because they are not designed to prevent the transmission of infection (rather, they are intended to prevent disease symptoms), or because they are for non-communicable diseases.

People who have not received the vaccines mentioned below pose no higher threat to the general public than those who have, implying that discrimination against non-immunized children in a public school setting may not be warranted.

Polio Vaccine

IPV (inactivated poliovirus vaccine) cannot prevent transmission of poliovirus. Wild poliovirus has been non-existent in the USA for at least two decades.

Even if wild poliovirus were to be re-imported by travel, vaccinating for polio with IPV cannot affect the safety of public spaces.

Please note that wild poliovirus eradication is attributed to the use of a different vaccine, OPV or oral poliovirus vaccine. Despite being capable of preventing wild poliovirus transmission, use of OPV was phased out long ago in the USA and replaced with IPV due to safety concerns.

DTaP Vaccine

Tetanus is not a contagious disease, but rather acquired from deep-puncture wounds contaminated with C. tetani spores. Vaccinating for tetanus (via the DTaP combination vaccine) cannot alter the safety of public spaces; it is intended to render personal protection only.

While intended to prevent the disease-causing effects of the diphtheria toxin, the diphtheria toxoid vaccine (also contained in the DTaP vaccine) is not designed to prevent colonization and transmission of C. diphtheriae. Vaccinating for diphtheria cannot alter the safety of public spaces; it is likewise intended for personal protection only.

The acellular pertussis (aP) vaccine (the final element of the DTaP combined vaccine), now in use in the USA, replaced the whole cell pertussis vaccine in the late 1990s, which was followed by an unprecedented resurgence of whooping cough.

An experiment with deliberate pertussis infection in primates revealed that the aP vaccine is not capable of preventing colonization and transmission of B. pertussis. The FDA has issued a warning regarding this crucial finding.

Furthermore, the 2013 meeting of the Board of Scientific Counselors at the CDC revealed additional alarming data that pertussis variants (PRN-negative strains) currently circulating in the USA acquired a selective advantage to infect those who are up-to-date for their DTaP boosters, meaning that people who are up-to-date are more likely to be infected, and thus contagious, than people who are not vaccinated.

Flu Vaccine

Among numerous types of H. influenzae, the Hib vaccine covers only type b. Despite its sole intention to reduce symptomatic and asymptomatic (disease-less) Hib carriage, the introduction of the Hib vaccine has inadvertently shifted strain dominance towards other types of H. influenzae (types a through f).

These types have been causing invasive disease of high severity and increasing incidence in adults in the era of Hib vaccination of children. The general population is more vulnerable to the invasive disease now than it was prior to the start of the Hib vaccination campaign.

Discriminating against children who are not vaccinated for Hib does not make any scientific sense in the era of non-type b H. influenzae disease.

Hepatitis B Vaccine

Hepatitis B is a blood-borne virus. It does not spread in a community setting, especially among children who are unlikely to engage in high-risk behaviors, such as needle sharing or sex.

Vaccinating children for hepatitis B cannot significantly alter the safety of public spaces.

Further, school admission is not prohibited for children who are chronic hepatitis B carriers. To prohibit school admission for those who are simply unvaccinated – and do not even carry hepatitis B – would constitute unreasonable and illogical discrimination.

In summary, a person who is not vaccinated with IPV, DTaP, HepB, and Hib vaccines due to reasons of conscience poses no extra danger to the public than a person who is. No discrimination is warranted.

Vaccine Adverse Events

How often do serious vaccine adverse events happen?

It is often stated that vaccination rarely leads to serious adverse events. Unfortunately, this statement is not supported by science.

A recent study done in Ontario, Canada, established that vaccination actually leads to an emergency room visit for 1 in 168 children following their 12-month vaccination appointment and for 1 in 730 children following their 18-month vaccination appointment.

When the risk of an adverse event requiring an ER visit after well-baby vaccinations is demonstrably so high, vaccination must remain a choice for parents, who may understandably be unwilling to assume this immediate risk in order to protect their children from diseases that are generally considered mild or that their children may never be exposed to.

Measles Outbreaks

Can discrimination against families who oppose vaccines for reasons of conscience prevent future disease outbreaks of communicable viral diseases, such as measles?

Measles research scientists have for a long time been aware of the “measles paradox.” I quote from the article by Poland & Jacobson (1994) “Failure to Reach the Goal of Measles Elimination: Apparent Paradox of Measles Infections in Immunized Persons.”

Arch Intern Med 154:1815-1820:

“The apparent paradox is that as measles immunization rates rise to high levels in a population, measles becomes a disease of immunized persons.”

Further research determined that behind the “measles paradox” is a fraction of the population called low vaccine responders.

Low-responders are those who respond poorly to the first dose of the measles vaccine. These individuals then mount a weak immune response to subsequent RE-vaccination and quickly return to the pool of “susceptibles” within 2-5 years, despite being fully vaccinated.

Re-vaccination cannot correct low-responsiveness: it appears to be an immuno-genetic trait. The proportion of low-responders among children was estimated to be 4.7% in the USA.

Studies of measles outbreaks in Quebec, Canada, and China attest that outbreaks of measles still happen, even when vaccination compliance is in the highest bracket (95-97% or even 99%). This is because even in high vaccine responders, vaccine-induced antibodies wane over time. Vaccine immunity does not equal life-long immunity acquired after natural exposure.

It has been documented that vaccinated persons who develop breakthrough measles are contagious. In fact, two major measles outbreaks in 2011 (in Quebec, Canada, and in New York, NY) were re-imported by previously vaccinated individuals.

Taken together, these data make it apparent that elimination of vaccine exemptions, currently only utilized by a small percentage of families anyway, will neither solve the problem of disease resurgence nor prevent re-importation and outbreaks of previously eliminated diseases.

Is discrimination against conscientious vaccine objectors the only practical solution?

The majority of measles cases in recent US outbreaks (including the recent Disneyland outbreak) are adults and very young babies, whereas in the pre-vaccination era, measles occurred mainly between the ages 1 and 15.

Natural exposure to measles was followed by lifelong immunity from re-infection, whereas vaccine immunity wanes over time, leaving adults unprotected by their childhood shots. Measles is more dangerous for infants and for adults than for school-aged children.

Despite high chances of exposure in the pre-vaccination era, measles practically never happened in babies much younger than one year of age due to the robust maternal immunity transfer mechanism.

The vulnerability of very young babies to measles today is the direct outcome of the prolonged mass vaccination campaign of the past, during which their mothers, themselves vaccinated in their childhood, were not able to experience measles naturally at a safe school age and establish the lifelong immunity that would also be transferred to their babies and protect them from measles for the first year of life.

Luckily, a therapeutic backup exists to mimic now-eroded maternal immunity. Infants as well as other vulnerable or immunocompromised individuals, are eligible to receive immunoglobulin, a potentially life-saving measure that supplies antibodies directed against the virus to prevent or ameliorate disease upon exposure.

Conclusion: Discrimination Against Unvaccinated Children Unnecessary

In summary:

1) due to the properties of modern vaccines, non-vaccinated individuals pose no greater risk of transmission of polio, diphtheria, pertussis, and numerous non-type b H. influenzae strains than vaccinated individuals do, non-vaccinated individuals pose virtually no danger of transmission of hepatitis B in a school setting, and tetanus is not transmissible at all;

2) there is a significantly elevated risk of emergency room visits after childhood vaccination appointments attesting that vaccination is not risk-free;

3) outbreaks of measles cannot be entirely prevented even if we had nearly perfect vaccination compliance; and

4) an effective method of preventing measles and other viral diseases in vaccine-ineligible infants and the immunocompromised, immunoglobulin, is available for those who may be exposed to these diseases.

Taken together, these four facts make it clear that discrimination in a public school setting against children who are not vaccinated for reasons of conscience is completely unwarranted as the vaccine status of conscientious objectors poses no undue public health risk.

Everything is Rigged: From Medicine to Politics to Finance — You Are Living in a Fabricated Fairy Tale

The temptation to think that what you are living may be a lie is too big to ignore. In fact, things should always be under close scrutiny of your intellect and reasoning capabilities instead of blind acceptance and submission.

These lies can vary anywhere from your close ones telling white lies so that you don’t feel bad about something to the government and the media lying to you about life changing issues, such as health, education, politics and terrorism.

The main thing we are going to focus is the big lies you are being told. These lies can cause irreparable damage to some people and they shouldn’t be avoided and forgiven.

1. The media (media bias and false information)

It’s not a rare occurrence that most of the lies you will get to hear are those presented by the media.

Although one of the five core principles of journalism is ‘truth and accuracy’, you will not find the media’s cover-up stories, misinformation and abuse of out-of-context information rare.

Many of the stories you have read turned out to be utter lies that had nothing to do with fairness and honesty. Just from last year, could see the ‘cooked’ Reuters Poll, clearly misinforming a lot of readers, and if you decide to explore similar fairy tales, we will give you some links below.

Mass media fabricated stories are most often the result of media bias. When such thing happens, you can put these six types of media bias in your knowledge base. Sometimes, knowing this information will help you recognize bias without using a fact checking site.

In other times though, you will need to see if the story you are reading is written from a medium which uses a fact checker, the most popular being the Pinocchio Test.

The Washington Post, for example, state that they use a fact checker in accordance with the International Fact-Checking Network.

You can also check websites such as FactCheck and Media Bias/Fact Check.

However, sometimes you can’t trust anything. Even though the media can fabricate stories, in many of the cases the stories are just retold statements made by others who chose to lie.

2. Food, Health and the Environment

How would you feel to know that you’ve been fed poison through food, medicine and the air? Since the mass media is the only means through which information can get to you, it is only fair to mention them here.

The media won’t tell you this, because in these cases, they choose to lean on the words of ‘official statements’ or ‘scientific research and reports’ or to simply ignore certain discoveries and truths.

Such was the case of Cannabis and stories stating ‘the deadly effects of Marijuana’. As an example, an article by the DailyMail leans on claims made by a person with an anti-cannabis background.

Another clue you can notice that this might be a biased article is that is has no sources stated, although it doesn’t report on an interview, but on a so called ‘Expert’s devastating 20-year study’.

However, the mainstream media won’t tell you about the healing properties of cannabis and how useful it can be for society in many aspects, not only health. They are not paid for it.

Have you ever heard a large news organization report on the destructive effects of GMO? Try for yourself!

Go on Google and write ‘GMO Harms bees’ or ‘Destructive effects of GMO’ and tell us which major news organization comes in the results.

The answer is: none.

This is the same for MANY stories that are worth more attention than that which is given to the Cardashians or to some ludicrous attention to rich and famous people or some blatant arguments between politicians.

Many of these stories don’t come from the mainstream media, but can emerge in various different websites.

Note that EVEN THEN you will need to check if the story is well supported with facts and arguments. The thing is that the facts are out there and everyone keen on finding them will succeed.

The general public, though, shouldn’t be blamed for accepting such notions as plausible and normal, and this is no thanks to education.

3. Education

There is a saying which goes: If you want to destroy a country, destroy its education. Education is the foundation to every society, as it teaches the people to be a part of society. Education can be directed in such way to leave people in total ignorance of what is really important.

Education shapes society. This means that its shape will dictate the shape of society. You can see examples of prospering societies that have decided to turn their educational systems to havens for knowledge and individual development.

The smartest and most advanced societies invest in proper education which nowadays is far from what education may seem to many other countries.

So how is the education like in most countries? A classroom with an army-like precise order in seating, teaching and testing will produce the same individuals who try to conform to a society which tells them what to do, instructs them on what is good and bad and leads their lives while they are unaware of all of that.

These classrooms provide no free space for critical thinking, except for controlled forms of critical thinking which is instructed against a certain truth (so that it remains hidden).

Speaking of presenting the truth, many countries decide to shape their educational materials to their preference. You haven’t learned of genocides on the indigenous Americans in school, nor have you learned anything about Nikola Tesla.

4. The Government and Corporations

The governments are those who represent the people. Lucky for them or not, some of these people have some very deep pockets.

The root of the problems doesn’t start from the government. For a person to become a part of the government, he/she needs a lot of finance, and this won’t come from the regular people.

The best backers for politicians are the wealthiest corporations, such as pharmaceutical companies, electrical and oil companies and similar giants in their industries.

What the backer asks in return is complete protection and clearance for every crime against humanity they intend to commit. Such was the case with cannabis, which was shunned for so many years despite the truth.

Another case is the hidden truth about Nikola Tesla’s idea for wireless electricity. The list goes on and on. Monsanto, Oil, Terrorism and many more are topics you should reconsider looking into.

These lies are impregnated in the fabric of society on a daily basis. The government chooses the education, the media, the social media, science and everything you can think of.

While you can’t change some things overnight, the one thing you can change is what to trust in. Always look at things with scrutiny.

That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t trust anything you hear, but you should always start with a neutral mind and build your attitude towards information as you discover new information on the way.

Shock News: Female jewish IDF Soldiers Work As Weekend Prostitutes In Tel Aviv Brothels

They even earn extra cash ‘servicing’ Arab clients in kinky massage parlors.

An edited abridgement of an article in the Jerusalem Post, containing additional commentary by Lasha Darkmoon and an extended footnote called “Sex Slavery in Israel”. 

(Click to expand)

“The situation is enough to make you cry in despair, or vomit from shame.” — Jewish author David Weinberg in an article called Not So Holy Land, quoted below.

They say she was 20 years old and was in the country for 15 years.

This 40-year-old prostitute had worked for a year and two months at a brothel in Tel Aviv, not far from where another prostitute had committed suicide. On condition that we not reveal where she works, Jenny ( not her real name) agreed to sit down and discuss Israel’s sex industry with us.

“Some days I only have two customers, others as many as 10,” Jenny reveals.

Along with four other women, all in their mid-30s to early 40s, Jenny  works from 10am to 7pm a 9-hour day. (Sometimes from 11am to 8 pm).  The women watch Russian-language TV and smoke cigarettes on a small patio.

Another woman works the phones, providing details to the johns: “NIS 200 (US$57) for half an hour, erotic massage, shared shower.” She advertises the prostitutes’ supposed attributes: “Young girl, hard but large breasts.”

(NIS = New Israeli shekel. 1 NIS = 28 US cents. Further references to shekels in this article have been converted into US dollars in brackets for the reader’s convenience. — LD)

Which girl that refers to is not clear, since none of them match the glowing description.

According to estimates, some 15,000 women are involved in sex work in the Jewish state. A recent report found that 1,000 girls under the age of 18 are involved in some form of prostitution here. Underage boys and transgender teens are also involved.

Human trafficking has been common, with several thousand women being smuggled in from the former Soviet Union in the 1990s.

LD: Israeli pimps can buy women and girls from Russia, Ukraine and other former Soviet Union countries for relatively small sums: for as little as $25 in the 1990s. An official report reads: “Women and children are taken from Russia mostly for prostitution. Their number is estimated at 30,000-60,000 a year. According to the Office of United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, over the past two decades, over 500,000 women were sold from Russia to other countries.” See You Can Buy Women and Girls as Slaves for as Little as $25. [LD]

They [the brothel owners] concentrate on neighborhoods such as 1 Finn Street, a “notorious drug and prostitution den,” which was recently torn down next to the central bus station. We hear stories about the Hasan Arfa area near Yitzhak Sadeh Street, a warren of tin shacks and garages supposedly overrun by drug users and sex workers.

Right now, there are reportedly 300 brothels in Tel Aviv.

Rebecca Hughes of social action organization Atzum’s Task Force on Human Trafficking writes, “There is a dangerous gap between the glamorous depiction of prostitution in pop culture and the reality that prostituted women, many of them minors, are forced to contend with on a daily basis. Most women do not choose to be prostitutes.”

The brothels operate openly, advertising their services on the street; young men are paid to scatter business-sized cards on sidewalks throughout the city. These vividly colored cards usually include pornographic photos of the women and advertise the services they are willing to offer. Some of the girls offer to visit customers in motels, or even at home. Just give them a phone call and they will be there.

Other women claim to offer “all varieties of massage, seven days a week, 24 hours a day.”

Some even specify “NO SEX!”

LD: What kinky perversions and fetish fantasies must they be offering if NORMAL SEX is not on the menu? The mind boggles. A little investigation reveals that virtually every form of sex on offer in these Israeli brothels is a dreary variation of the solitary vice. As one of the prostitutes quoted below points out: “Most [of my clients] just want a nude massage and to ‘finish’ on me.”

Masturbation, according to Freud, is “the primal habit”. This the Jews know and promote masturbation on an epic scale throughout the world, which is why it is well known that Jews are the main force behind  the $100 billion a year porn industry. [LD]    

Brothels and massage parlors are located everywhere in Tel Aviv. There is not a neighborhood that doesn’t have them. For NIS 350 ($100) you can have a “tantric massage” from 10pm to midnight. Elsewhere, in “the nicest place in Tel Aviv near the sea,” you can enjoy a “spoiling massage” at the hands of “four young, beautiful women.”

In all, there are 44 massage parlors within 10 kilometers of  the beach. They offer every type of woman. A “full-nude body massage”, lasting 30 minutes, costs NIS 200 ($57). The age of the masseuses usually range from about 21 to 34. Most places had similar hours: open from 10am to 6pm with three to five women, then from 6pm to 4am with a new shift.

Outside 98 Hayarkon Street, an ugly, dilapidated building in an area undergoing gentrification, signs had been pasted to the sidewalk protesting that women worked 12-hour days and serviced 20 to 30 men a day. They were left over from the Saturday-night demonstration, outside the building where a woman named “Jessica” had committed suicide. “A house of prostitution is a rape center” some signs said, while others proclaimed more starkly “Prostitution = Rape.”

Laws in Israel, which seem to be rarely enforced, have criminalized solicitation of prostitution – but being a customer is not a crime.

The protesters alleged that women were forced into prostitution, that brothel security guards had supplied them with drugs. In other reports, heroin addiction was given as a reason for women entering prostitution, or staying in it. In 2011, then-MK Orit Zuaretz tried to introduce a bill to make it illegal for men to be clients of sex services. “If you buy a blood diamond, it is criminal; if you buy the body of a woman, it should be criminal, too. I don’t understand why this is tolerated by the public in a Jewish state,” the Kadima MK told the press at the time.

The legislation, which never passed, led to a strange incident in Ashdod, in which a 56-year-old man turned himself in to police to protest the issue, claiming he often frequented brothels.

THIS YEAR, a woman who allegedly made NIS 47 million ($13.5 million) from running Tel Aviv brothels was arrested. According to sources familiar with the story, she had managed a brothel on Ben-Yehuda Street that is now a hotel, which was open seven days a week and charged NIS 270 ($77) for sex. Police charges against this madam ran the gamut from pimping to creating a public nuisance and money-laundering.

If police really wanted to close these “houses of shame,” as they are called in Hebrew, they could easily do so. A quick  perusal of the free Banana magazine that advertises sex services—or simply picking up all the business cards scattered all over the sidewalks (see picture)—would make it easier to crack down on the pimps and procuresses.

Jenny says she has never seen a policeman bother her place of business. A mother of an eight-year-old, Jenny lived in a central Israeli town before moving to Tel Aviv. She was born in Donetsk, Ukraine, and came to Israel more than a decade ago. Prostitution became a relatively convenient way to make money. With NIS 200 for a “massage,” she takes home half of this sum (about $23).

She describes her daily routine. She doesn’t use drugs or drink on the job. “Some of the men are nice, others are not. Some want me to be like an acrobat. It can be difficult. But most just want a nude massage and to ‘finish’ on me.”

Those who want “extras” pay more in tips. “I split the initial NIS 200 ($57) with the boss, but the tips I pocket myself. Why would I tell them about that?” It seems the story is a kind of wink-wink-nod-nod, with the “boss” who isn’t on the premises, and the madam who works the phones and knows the girls engage in oral or actual sex, though that’s not on the menu of offerings.

“Extras, you should talk to the girl,” the woman explains over the phone. “Massage, we offer massage,” she says, but has to clarify. Men who pay for sex are expected to bring their own condoms, and the women dispose of the condoms after each act. “We don’t keep them on the premises,” she explains. “That way, if police come, it looks like a massage parlor.”

Rooms are decorated with ugly wallpaper and air-conditioning units. A small personal shower is in one corner, with a chair, a place for the john to hang his clothes and a massage table. Towels are stacked in another corner and there are candles, oil and a clock.

A young woman in her 20s from Beersheba, originally from Ukraine, says she began her career in prostitution while in the IDF. She did her soldiering during the week and worked as a weekend prostitute.


LD: Many of these Jewish girls work as part-time prostitutes, masturbating Arab clients in massage parlors during the evening shift or at weekends. As many as 500 Israeli soldiers  were recently reported to have been caught up in this network of vice. See “Israeli soldiers caught in prostitution cycle over economic woes.” . . .  See also “Economic Woes turn Israeli Soldiers into Prostitutes.” [LD] 

Not all the girls were Russians, though most were. A phone survey indicates that about 20 percent are Sabras (Israeli-born Jews). The rest are described as “Europeans,” a euphemism for the former Soviet Union. About 10 percent of the girls are black Africans. They mostly come from Ethiopia, but are described for some reason as “Brazilian.”

One of the prostitutes is an Arab. From Haifa. “I work from noon to 4am,” she reveals. “Which isn’t normal, but it’s only once a week.” She says she can make as much as NIS 1,600 for her 16-hour shift ($457)

Another woman was more negative about the situation:

“This is a crap country. The men are crap; they don’t treat you like a person, they just want the service and to leave. I hate working here, but I have huge bills, I can’t afford my apartment or my cellphone, and I am helping my brother and father pay for things.”

If these women were all addicted to heroin being forced on them by thugs guarding the door, it was not evident. The premises we visited had no men in them at all. Despite the stories claiming that most of the customers were Arab or haredi (Orthodox Jews), the customers were generally Israeli Jewish men in their 30s and 40s. None of them were religious.

At one all-Russian massage parlor in south Tel Aviv near the beach, however, most of the customers appeared to be Arab men who had just gotten off work, with a few tourists poking their heads in.


Sex Slavery in Israel

by Lasha Darkmoon

The situation in Israel is far worse than this Jerusalem Post article, written by Israeli Seth Frantzmen, makes out.

Only quite recently, Ha’aretz news published this article: Ten indicted for running one of Israel’s biggest brothels in Tel Aviv. – The brothels, incidentally, used only Schicksen, or non-Jewish girls. Eight of those arrested were women. Their two brothels had an estimated total income in excess of $28 million over several years.

Sex slavery, it has to be noted, is universal and not confined to Israel. Only last year an attractive 14-year-old British girl was sold into sex slavery by her Albanian boyfriend and raped as many as 110 times a day for cash.

Sex trafficking is the second largest criminal industry in the world, netting $32 billion a year.

My own researches reveal that sex slavery is common throughout the world and that the way it is often done is through heroin addiction. The girl is usually enticed into applying for a seemingly well-paid job. She is then brutally raped by her captor and injected with heroin. Her passport confiscated, she is now forced to work for her pimp (or his syndicate), with threats that her family will be killed if she refuses. The idea that this is happening in other parts of the world, but not in Israel, is absurd.

We have frequent reports of Russian, Moldavian and Eastern European girls abducted by Israeli pimps and forced into a horrendous life of prostitution in Tel Aviv involving 16-hour shifts. The Israeli police, as we can see from the Jerusalem Post article above, are not interested in putting an end to these horrors. In many cases, they are probably to be found in league with the pimps and making use of the same brothels. An average pimp has 4-6 girls working for him and can earn up to $150,000-$200,000 a year. The police would get their cut.

Here is an extract from a previous article of mine called Secret Sex Life of the Jews:

If you can get hold of Ilana Hammerman’s  In Foreign Parts: Trafficking in Women in Israel, you will read harrowing accounts of Israel’s contemporary sex-service industry. Innocent young girls, many of them underage, are kidnapped in Russia and Eastern Europe and forced into a life of prostitution in Tel Aviv. Locked up without food, subject to threats and violence by their Jewish pimps, these wretched girls are sometimes expected to sleep with up to sixty customers a day. Their most assiduous clients, sporting black hats and bushy beards, are “religious” Orthodox Jews taking a sabbatical from their wives.

Here is the kind of eye-popping revelation we come across in Hammerman’s shocking book:

I had a very famous rabbi who would come and order a girl to have sex with him in the doggie position, and would ask her to bark,” a former brothel owner testified at a [Knesset] parliamentary committee. One of the working women, presented as a devout Christian, expresses an aversion to her religious clients: “They had a big black hat and under it [another] little black hat and they were real perverts.” 

According to a CNN report in 1998, Israel now has the highest per capita consumption of prostitute services in the world. One million visits are paid to prostitutes each month, making brothel hopping one of the nation’s most popular pastimes. Thousands of women are abducted annually—mostly from Russia, Ukraine, Moldavia, Uzbekistan and China—and sold into sex slavery in Israel. “The situation,” Jewish author David Weinberg wrote in a 1998 article about prostitution in Israel, entitled Not So Holy Land, “is enough to make you cry in despair—or vomit from shame.”

Thoughts on “Shock News: Female IDF Soldiers Work As Weekend Prostitutes In Tel Aviv Brothels”

  1. Jews are what make this planet a living hell. Just look around at the misery and suffering of all humanity. Look at the wars, mass slaughters, pollution, moral decrepitude, perversity, corruption and nuclear insanity that prevails over this planet; all directly attributed to the eternal Jew and their lust for money and power.

    Life today is like living in a Pieter Bruegel painting You best be belivin’ in hell, because you be livin’ it!

    I don’t know about heaven, but most assuredly if there is one, there won’t be any Jews there.

      1. Pieter Breugel (the Elder) was born about 10 – 15 years after Hieronymus Bosch died. Bosch’s influence on Breugel – both came from Brabant, the Netherlands – is, IMO, fairly obvious. That is not to detract from Breugel’s work. Both Bosch and Breugel were geniuses, and Breughel (the Younger) was no slouch, either.

        Bosch’s “Woman with a Veil” is a timeless piece of incredible beauty. Compare that with the cookie-cutter-crap produced by modern “artists” such as the vile, violent and anti-white “art” of Cleon Peterson’s “Lets Start A War”, or the excrement focused dabblings of the Stool Sculpture Deity Cult. And some call the 15th Century part of the “Dark Ages”!

      2. The “Woman with a Veil” painting is not Bosch, it’s a mislabelling by one of those dumb poster companies. The real artist is Herman Richir, a late 19th century painter from Belgium.

        Not to say that Bosch didn’t have the talent to paint beauty, because he most certainly did. His sort of subversiveness is seen in many of the great artists commissioned to work for The Church. There’s Bernini’s lustfull realistic sculptures, Botticelli’s obvious pagan themes, etc. Geniuses, they were being paid to make propaganda but what they were doing was showing those perceptive enough to get it “the other side”.

      3. Thanks, L Beene! 🙂 It did seem strangely out of place, but Bosch – and the Breugels – were all artists of extraordinary talent. I’ll substitute the “Garden of Earthly Delights” in my comment above, and stand by every word of what I wrote. And I’d also stand by “Woman with a Veil” being a timeless piece of incredible beauty, as well as my floccinaucinihilipilification of modern “art”.

        Israel: The Promised Land of Organized Crime – Full Version

White House “contender” Kamala Harris stays silent on Israel’s crimes

Kamala Harris’ visit to Israel was announced when Benjamin Netanyahu tweeted this photo.

Kamala Harris, a US senator from California and reportedly a potential Democratic candidate for the presidency, made a quiet trip last week to the Middle East.

Information about her trip was not posted on her website or Twitter feed but was announced via social media by both Benjamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, and Yair Lapid, another prominent Israeli politician.

Katherine Franke, a professor at Columbia Law School, was among the first to express concern.

Harris’ office did not respond to questions from The Electronic Intifada regarding whether or not she addressed Israel’s human rights abuses and violations of international law during her trip.

Palestine News Network did report on Harris’ brief visit with 10 female students at Al-Quds University in the occupied West Bank.

She told the students she had driven by Israel’s separation wall en route to the university and inquired whether it posed “a real barrier” to their movement. The unanimous answer was yes. Students then told her about other restrictions Israel inflicts on them.

The publicized meetings with Israeli officials, for their part, appeared friendly. Netanyahu stressed “the potential for deepening cooperation in water management.” Israel is known to be stealing water from Palestinians living under occupation.

Looking the other way

We do know from a June 2016 Jewish News of Northern California questionnaire – published before Harris won her US Senate seat in November last year – that Harris has a strong tendency to look the other way when it comes to Israeli human rights abuses. Knowing something about the wall and doing something about it are two very different things.

Referring to a previous Middle East trip, Harris stated: “Israel’s supreme court is a beautiful monument to a government founded on the highest of human ideals. The beauty of the architecture and spirit of design left a lasting impression – the straight lines in the building represent the immutable nature of truth, while the curved glass and walls were built to represent the fluid nature of finding justice.”

This propaganda – or ignorance – is disturbing. And it puts Harris increasingly at odds with grassroots Democrats who support economic sanctions against Israel – or more serious action – for its settlement activity. Though illegal under international law, such activity has been enabled by Israel’s courts.

Harris appears to be unaware of what Human Rights Watch has called the “separate and unequal” reality for Palestinians in the occupied West Bank. That reality is based on a “two-tier” legal system.

Her comment also disregards the dozens of laws discriminating against Palestinian citizens of Israel.

Later in the same questionnaire, Harris rejected the boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) movement.

She asserted that the “movement is based on the mistaken assumption that Israel is solely to blame for the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”

She added: “The BDS movement seeks to weaken Israel but it will only isolate the nation and steer Israelis against prerequisite compromises for peace. At a time when anti-Semitism is on the rise – especially in Europe – and the Middle East is growing increasingly unstable, I believe we should not isolate Israel, the only democracy in the region.”

No Democratic candidate who made a similar argument today against boycotting apartheid South Africa or Jim Crow segregation in the American South would stand a chance of winning the presidential nomination – or representing the state of California.

Harris certainly does not make a similar case opposing boycotts of American states that legislate discrimination against transgender people.

In fact, she has been a leader in challenging such bigotry.

Yet when it comes to equal rights – and doing anything about the lack of rights for Palestinians – she proposes an exception for Israel. Polling suggests this will put her out of step with liberal Democrats who are expected to be the main driving force in the 2020 Democratic nominating process.

Harris does not appear to have always held such anti-Palestinian views. They are seemingly a more recent creation of her run for the US Senate.

In 2012, The Electronic Intifada reported that Harris – then California’s attorney general – “rejected a request by a Zionist group to prosecute a professor at California State University, Northridge (CSUN) for ‘misuse of state resources’ because he uses university servers to host a website on which he campaigns for the boycott of Israel.”

The rejected organization, the Global Frontier Justice Center, appeared to be a front group for Shurat HaDin, a “law center” with close ties to Mossad, Israel’s spying and assassination agency.


Zaid Jilani with The Intercept has examined Harris’ track record regarding Palestinian rights.

When questioned in June by Jilani about how Israel had disenfranchised Palestinians in Jerusalem, Harris gave an evasive reply.

Jilani further noted that Halie Soifer, foreign policy adviser to Harris, was previously a speechwriter for the Israeli ambassador to the US. This job would have required defending occupation, racism and numerous human rights violations.

Jilani also highlighted Harris’ non-answer to a question from The Jewish News of Northern California. Not once did she refer to Israel’s settlements in the occupied West Bank, while responding to a question specifically asking whether she would characterize such settlements as illegal.

She did, however, voice her support for Israel as a “Jewish state” in her response. “Lasting peace can only be found through bilateral negotiations that protect Israel’s identity, ensure security for all people and include the recognition of Israel’s right to exist as a Jewish state.”

Israel’s “right to exist as a Jewish state” by definition relegates Palestinians to an inferior status as Harris would presumably recognize if asked a similar question regarding whether the US should be a “Christian state” or a “white Christian state.”

Additionally, “bilateral negotiations” is a code word for allowing Israel, the more powerful party, to continue to do what it wants regarding illegal settlements in the West Bank, including East Jerusalem.

Wrongly applying family history

In March this year, Harris spoke at the annual conference of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, an influential lobby group.

Perhaps the saddest aspect of that speech was her reference to her own family history.

Harris stated: “Look at my own life where a daughter of a South Asian mother and a Jamaican father concluded her own interfaith wedding with her husband breaking a glass and everyone yelling mazel tov.”

Harris should know that Palestinians from the occupied West Bank and Gaza have, in effect, been banned from marrying citizens of Israel. She should also learn about the discrimination faced when people of different faiths marry within Israel.

Most Americans would find it abhorrent for the government to block relationships between people of different faiths or different races. Yet Israel has been going down this apartheid path by castigating such relationshipsand legislating against them.

Consequently, organizations such as Human Rights Watch have roundly condemned Israel for its position.

Harris is either oblivious to such criticisms or simply does not care.


Arab states embrace Israel despite domestic resistance

The Palestinian call to boycott Israel is receiving growing support in the Gulf. Ryan Rodrick BeilerActiveStills

Activists and political figures gathered in Kuwait City earlier this month for the first regional conferencededicated to combating normalization with Israel.

“The Zionist entity is taking advantage of regional circumstances and normalizing relations with some Arab Gulf countries. That is what necessitated holding this conference,” said Saad Akasheh, chairman of Kuwait Catalyst Company, in one of the opening speeches.

The conference was organized by BDS Gulf, a group that backs the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement for Palestinian rights, under the patronage of Marzouq al-Ghanim, the current speaker of the Kuwaiti parliament.

Participants focused on strategies to divest from firms complicit in Israel’s military occupation, such as security company G4S, technology giant Hewlett-Packard, French engineering multinational Alstom and South Korea’s Hyundai.

There were also calls for laws and regulations in Gulf countries to actively exclude corporations involved in Israeli crimes.

G4S has lost numerous contracts in Jordan and Lebanon as a result of activist campaigns.

It also took a big hit in Kuwait last year, where the country’s public pension and social security fund divested from G4S shares.

Omar Barghouti, one of the founders of the BDS movement, told participants in a recorded address that normalization is one of Israel’s strongest weapons to counteract the isolation it is experiencing because of boycotts.

Barghouti said that normalizing ties with Israel – which can include trade, cultural, sporting, political and military relations – is not only “a threat to the cause of Palestine, the central cause in the Arab region, but also to all the peoples of the region, as the Zionist colonial and racist project works against the region’s stability and prosperity.”

Video of the entire conference can be seen on YouTube.

Despite domestic resistance movements, Arab states’ relations with Israel have never been more overt.

Normalization in Jordan

In contrast to Kuwait’s anti-normalization conference, the invite-only World Science Forum, held at the Dead Sea in Jordan earlier this month under the patronage of King Abdullahincluded 10 Israeli academics and scientists.

BDS Jordan relaunched the call for Jordanian academic and cultural boycott in light of the event.

Jordan signed a peace treaty with Israel in 1994, but it remains deeply unpopular in a country with close historic and social ties to Palestine, and Jordanian society has generally resisted official efforts to promote relations with Israel.

“At a time when normalization conferences are bombarding Jordan and the Jordanians and exploiting Jordanians’ interest in scientific forums by receiving academics of the Zionist entity and imposing their presence in an attempt to force Jordanian individuals and institutions into normalization, there is a need for a movement of academics and intellectuals to address this massive wave of normalization,” BDS Jordan stated.

The group added that since its founding, Israel has “always expressed colonial ambitions on Jordanian territory and has occupied some of them and stolen their resources.” BDS Jordan also urged the Jordanian government to “boycott the Zionist entity academically, culturally and scientifically.”

Jordanian news website 7iber also denounced normalization at the conference.

Last summer, an Israeli security guard shot and killed two Jordanian nationals at a building used by the Israeli embassy in Amman. Amid a popular outcry that the gunman was spirited back to Israel where he was given a hero’s welcome, Jordan has since refused to reopen the embassy.

Israel has also threatened to withdraw from the Red Sea-Dead Sea Water Conveyance Project if the embassy does not reopen.

The Jordanian government said the project, which would generate hydroelectric power using a canal from the Red Sea to the Dead Sea, will continue regardless of Israeli participation.

Activists and environmentalists would see an Israeli withdrawal as a victory; the mega-project has long been criticized for potentially devastating ecological effects, as well as helping Israel to further dispossess Palestinians of their water resources.

Gulf “brotherhood” with the US and Israel

While Saudi Arabia has drawn ever closer to Israel out of a shared enmity towards Iran, their alliance has recently moved from the shadows into the open.

Muhammad bin Abdul Karim Issa, former Saudi justice minister and close ally of Crown Prince Mohammad bin Salmanreportedly told Israeli media that violence against Israel is “un-Islamic” – in all its forms.

Israeli officials have also been welcome to speak to Saudi media as well.

In an unprecedented interview, Israeli military chief Gadi Eizenkot spoke to the Saudi newspaper Elaph.

He boasted about the two countries’ “many shared interests” and the readiness to share intelligence – likely a tacit admission that this has already been going on.

Eizenkot also bragged about the Israeli military, saying its status has never been better.

The United Arab Emirates is also taking steps towards a normalized relationship with Israel.

In an interview with the American news agency Defense & Aerospace Report, Abdullah al-Hashmi, an Emirati general, affirmed that Israel and his country do not pose any danger to one another.

“The UAE is a strategic partner of the United States. The UAE is not going to go and fight any of the United States allies, we’re going to fight in the same line and we’re going to defeat the same enemy,” the general said.

He also talked about the US as the “big brother” to the Emirates and Israel, acting as a broker between the two smaller siblings as the three allies jointly face off against Iran.

Earlier this year, the Israeli air force, which has killed and injured thousands of Palestinian and Lebanese civilians, and the United Arab Emirates air force, which has done the same in Yemen, participated in joint military exercises.


Macron publicly ‘humiliates’ Burkina Faso president as French leader’s Africa trip goes wrong

Emmanuel Macron’s visit to Africa has been tainted not only by attacks and protest on his first stop in Burkina Faso. The president of the African nation apparently wasn’t so much into French humor either, leaving the room during Macron’s speech at a local university.

Meeting with the students of the University of Ouagadougou in Burkina Faso on Tuesday, the French leader reiterated his position that France’s paternalistic approach to the African countries should be ended. The tradition of African nations reproaching France in case if something goes wrong should also be broken, he said, adding that the students spoke to him “as if he were a president of Burkina Faso” when complaining about the poor state of the university.

Sometimes you talk to me like I’m still a colonial power,” the French president said. “But I do not want to deal with electricity in universities in Burkina Faso,” Macron added, smiling. Apparently warmed up by a mix of laughter, applause and whistling in the audience, he carried on. “It is the work of the president [of Burkina Faso],” he said, pointing at president Roch Marc Christian Kabore, who was listening to Macron’s speech from the same stage.

At this point, Kabore suddenly stood up and left the room. “He’s leaving… Stay there! So, he went to repair the air conditioning,” Macron shouted after the African state leader. The video posted on Macron’s Twitter account has been edited to exclude his comments addressed to Kabore.

Social media users reacted with saying the French leader “disrespected” his counterpart, having displayed “arrogance” and “immaturity.” “Imagine a foreign country president having such an attitude in France and say the same thing to Macron,” a Twitter user pointed out.

Attacks and protest

Hours before the French delegation arrived in Burkina Faso, two unknown hooded assailants on a motorcycle propelled a hand grenade at a bus carrying French troops. The attackers missed their intended target and wounded three civilians instead.

The French president acknowledged the incident, but tried to downplay it, shifting the focus on the persisting terrorist insurgency in the country instead of stationed French troops. “It’s only a grenade, I don’t forget the deaths your people had to suffer yesterday, and in the weeks and months before,” Macron said during a press conference at Burkina Faso’s presidential palace.

“And they are victims of what? Not of a reaction to a visit by France’s President. They are the victims of terrorism, of the deadly obscurantist terrorism against which we are all fighting with determination,” he added.

In a separate incident, the French delegation’s convoy was pelted with stones, and at least one vehicle was damaged. Macron was not in the convoy at the moment of the attack, as the president was meeting with his Burkina Faso’s counterpart Roch Marc Kabore, according to Macron’s spokesman Bruno Roger-Petit.

“A vehicle from the delegation was the target of stone-throwing,” the spokesman said in a tweet. “But we’re not talking about hundreds of attackers or loads of cars destroyed.”

Students were protesting near the university where Macron was giving his speech. The rally participants chanted “Down with imperialism” and carried banners reading “French troops – out of Burkina Faso, out of Africa” and “No French bases in Burkina & Africa.”

France has complicated relations with its former African colonies, which have been independent since 1960s. Their ties with the former metropole, however, were never completely severed. France has intervened military more than 30 times in the continent since the decolonization of Africa and has its troops stationed in a number of its former colonies.

Burkina Faso is not an exception, where French contingent participates in the anti-terrorism Operation Barkhane, which commenced back in 2014. On Tuesday, while responding to a question at the university why France sends more soldiers in than it receives African exchange students, the French president stated that the troops should only be “applauded” for their service.

NSA former intelligence contractor Edward Snowden

Snowden Denounces ‘Lie, Cover-Up’ in New Zealand After Latest Spying Revelations

Whistleblower Edward Snowden is feeling vindicated after a New Zealand Herald report citing official documents which appear to show that a mass surveillance program continued after then-Prime Minister John Key claimed it had been halted; Snowden has accused Key of engineering a cover-up which enabled him to “steal” the 2014 general election.

Official New Zealand government documents show that a mass surveillance program, which former Prime Minister John Key insisted had been halted, had in fact continued during his time in office, according to an investigation by the New Zealand Herald.

Whistleblower Edward Snowden has accused Key, who was in office from 2008 to 2016, of “stealing” the 2014 general election by falsely claiming that the program had been stopped.

​Shortly before the election, investigative reporter Glenn Greenwald, who examined the files Snowden leaked from the NSA, and Snowden alleged that the New Zealandgovernment was carrying out mass surveillance of its residents.

Snowden warned New Zealanders that “If you live in New Zealand, you are being watched,” and accued Key of “not telling the truth about mass surveillance.”

Key issued a strong denial of the claims and even released several declassified papers to support his position. He claimed that the Speargun project to tap New Zealand’s internet cable had been dropped in March 2013.

”There is not, and never has been, a cable access surveillance program operating in New Zealand,” Key said on September 15, prior to the general election on September 23 in which his National Party gained one seat to remain in government.

“There is not, and never has been, mass surveillance of New Zealanders undertaken by the GCSB (Government Communications Security Bureau),” the prime minister added.

​However, new documents show that the development of Speargun continued after March 2013, “Apparently because the scheme was ‘too broad,'” the Herald reported on Tuesday.

“Instead, they show Speargun wasn’t actually stopped until after Key was told in a secret briefing that details were likely to become public because they could be in the trove of secrets taken by NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden.”

“Cabinet documents from April 2013 then show Speargun — or Initiative 7418 — had its funding extended through to June the following year,” the newspaper wrote.

According to Snowden, the GCSB used a mass surveillance tool called XKEYSCORE, developed by the NSA, to intercept and monitor the internet communications of ordinary citizens.Writing in The Intercept, Greenwald asserted on the basis of the Snowden files that “at some point in 2012 or early 2013,” the GCSB implemented the first phase of the Speargun project.

The second phase of the project, which was conceived in April 2012, involved the insertion of “metadata probes” into “cable access” equipment, which appeared to be a reference to the Southern Cross Cable, New Zealand’s only point of telecommunications access. The leaked NSA documents note that the first such metadata probe was scheduled for installation in “mid-2013.”


Egypt slams Israeli minister’s call to resettle Palestinians in Sinai

Egyptian authorities have criticised the Israeli Minister of Social Equality Gila Gamliel over her recent statements, in which she called for an alternative Palestinian state to be established in the Sinai Peninsula.

Egypt’s foreign minister, Sameh Shoukry, denounced today Gamliel’s statements stressing that Egypt firmly rejects any kind of “talk or thoughts” that undermine Egypt’s territorial sovereignty.

“The Egyptian domestic affairs should not be included in any statements by foreign parties most importantly when these statements touch Egyptian sovereignty,” Shoukry said in a press conference.

Shoukry noted that the Egyptian authorities have conveyed Cairo’s rejection on Gamliel’s statements to the Israeli ambassador in Cairo, adding that her comments “were made a long time ago.” He also denied summoning the Israeli ambassador.

“The Egyptian land in Sinai, which was watered with the blood of our sons and martyrs, is not something that can be given away or allowed to be attacked,” the Egyptian minister added.

An official source at the Egyptian foreign ministry told Quds Press that officials believe that the recent mosque attack is an Israeli attempt to empty Sinai from its original residents to build a Palestinian state in as an alternative for the two-state solution in the West Bank.

The Egyptian official noted that the Egyptian Embassy in Tel Aviv has asked Israel for clarifications on Gamliel’s comments, noting that the Israeli government had stressed that the statements “were personal comments and did not represent government policy.”

On his part, the Egyptian MP, Mostafa Bakry, told Quds Press that the Israeli statements were linked to the recent terrorist attack in Sinai.

Last week, Gamliel said during her visit to Cairo that “it is impossible to create a Palestinian state except in Sinai.”

Rejecting a Palestinian state in the West Bank, she noted that “a Palestinian State is a dangerous idea for the State of Israel,” she explained, stressing: “Between the River Jordan and the [Mediterranean] sea there cannot, and must not, arise a Palestinian state.”

“This call could be unacceptable to the international community and the Arab countries, which are neighbours to Israel, but it is based on our primary and historic right to the land of Israel,” the Israeli minister reiterated.

Report: Hariri’s financial empire is collapsing

The construction empire of Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri is crumbling according to a report in the Wall Street Journal (WSJ)

Hariri’s political career and his business empire have been built on decades of support from the Saudi royal family. Both are now said to be collapsing.

Saudi Oger Ltd, the company owned by the Hariri family, closed its operations in the Kingdom this summer after the Saudi royal family cut spending on large construction projects. The company, reported WSJ, now relies on the Saudi government to pay millions of dollars in wages owed to former employees.

The precarious situation of Hariri’s business empire is suggested to be intertwined with the announcement of his recent resignation in Riyadh.

The Saudi Kingdom’s influence on the Hariri family stretches back to the 1980s when Rafic Hariri – father of Saad Hariri – made his fortune after moving to Saudi Arabia from Lebanon as a teenager. Saudi Oger, the company he founded, quickly grew into a multi-billion dollar business, due to large contracts awarded by the Saudi royal family. The construction firm supported the entire Hariri financial and political empire.

Rafic Hariri returned to Lebanon as a wealthy man, entered politics, becoming prime minister for the first time in 1992 and used his wealth to fund his campaign, while the support he received from the Saudi royal family helped build his support base among the Lebanese Sunni community.

Following his assassination in 2005, Saad Hariri took on the responsibilities of his father’s political and business duties.

Analysts believe the political influence enjoyed by Hariri stems mainly from his long standing relations with Saudi Arabia. According to the WSJ, bankers who worked with the firm said the problems facing Hariri’s business began nearly three years ago, as the Kingdom began to deal with the impact of lower oil prices on public finances.

Problems began to mount for the Hariri empire after Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman tightened spending to deal with the recession. The measures he introduced impacted the multi-billion dollar construction projects, including those overseen by Saudi Oger.

Saudi Oger struggled to pay the salaries of thousands of its employees including senior French businessmen. According to the WSJ, Hariri repeatedly told French diplomats that his company is working to pay late salaries. The French ambassador to Saudi Arabia is even said to have written a strongly worded letter to Hariri in June 2016 demanding payment.

At this point the Saudi government intervened and paid the French employees the equivalent of nine months’ wages, which cost the Kingdom millions of dollars, according the WSJ report.

Saudi Oger’s problems don’t end there. In 2016, the Saudi Ministry of Finance demanded documents from the company about its spending practices. Bankers who worked for the company say they put forward different scenarios to save it. The WSJ also said that Saudi Oger sold its stake in a Jordanian bank for about $ 1 billion to raise funds.

Netanyahu calls for Azaria to be pardoned

The Israeli Prime Minister signed a petition calling for the soldier to be granted an amnesty

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu yesterday signed a petition demanding an Israeli soldier convicted of killing a wounded Palestinian be pardoned.

According to Israeli newspaper Maariv, the petition demands amnesty be granted to Elor Azaria who was sentenced to 18 months in prison earlier this year after he was convicted of the murder of Palestinian Abdel Fattah Al-Sharif at the end of March 2016. Al-Sharif was lying motionless on the ground in the occupied city of Hebron when Azaria walked up to him and shot him at point-blank range.

His sentence was reduced to 14 months in September. Earlier this month, Rivlin rejected Azaria’s request for a pardon. According to a statement released by his office: “The president has taken into account the offenses you committed and their circumstances… and he has decided to reject the request.” Maariv reported that Rivlin would consider the petition if he received it officially, nothing that it would be necessary to wait six months before considering a new request for amnesty.

Rivlin has come under intense criticism as a result of his decision with an online campaign being launched depicting him in a Palestinian headdress. Police opened investigations into possible cases of incitement.

Many prominent Israeli figures had supported Azaria’s appeal, including Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman who said last month that the soldier should be freed from prison without delay. At the time of his sentencing in July, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu along with a group of senior Israeli ministers called for the soldier to be pardoned.

Azaria was awarded compensation earlier this month amounting to some $6,900 from the head of the Manpower Directorate of the Israel Defence Forces; half the amount that is normally paid to soldiers who complete their military service. Azaria only served 18 months of his three year term in the army.

During and after his trial, Azaria has received widespread support from the Israeli public and was labelled a national hero under the slogan “Israel’s son”.

Israel mulls 300% increase in court fees for Palestinians

The Israeli government’s Constitution Committee is to discuss a draft bill tomorrow which would force Palestinians to pay three times as much as Israelis to submit petitions to the Supreme Court.

The committee is expected to approve the fees which will be charged.

Should Minister of Justice Ayelet Shaked support the proposal and it be approved by the committee, the news fees will come into effect immediately.

“This law is racist and aims to prevent the Palestinians from petitioning the Supreme Court in any decision it takes, especially in those decisions that are related to the Palestinians’ fate and the seizure of their lands, such as demolition, confiscation and similar decisions,” a member of the Joint List said according to the Safa News Agency.

The source expected the law to be ratified.

The law, the source added, was in addition to numerous discriminatory laws that are being passed in the Knesset. They are similar to Palestinians being charged with “demolition costs” when their properties are razed by occupation forces, the source explained.

Fury as Russia launches investigation into whether the last tsar Nicholas II was killed with his family as part of a ‘Jewish ritual murder’, at behest of Putin’s ‘confessor’

  • The country’s final emperor was shot with his wife and five children in 1918 
  • Some in Russian Orthodox Church insist he was murdered in a Jewish ritual 
  • Theory was dismissed in 1990s but new investigation will explore it again 
  • Jews have been accused of ritual murder by anti-Semites since Middle Ages 

Russia is launching an investigation into whether Tsar Nicholas II and his family were killed by Jews as part of a ‘ritual murder’ in a move that has infuriated anti-Semitism campaigners.

Father Tikhon Shevkunov, the Orthodox bishop heading an investigatory panel, is among hardcore members of the church who claim the final Russian emperor was murdered in a Jewish ritual.

Tsar Nicholas was shot with his wife and five children by Communist Bolsheviks in 1918 after Vladimir Lenin came to power, and wild rumours about the circumstances surrounding his death have circulated ever since.

Boruch Gorin, a spokesman for the Federation of Jewish Communities, Russia’s largest Jewish group, expressed a strong concern about the claims, which he described as a ‘throwback to the darkest ages’.

Some Christians in medieval Europe believed Jews murdered Christians to use their blood for ritual purposes, something which historians say has no basis in Jewish religious law or historical fact.

The tsar and his family were executed by a Bolshevik firing squad on July 17, 1918, in a basement room of a merchant’s house where they were held in the Ural Mountains city of Yekaterinburg. The Russian Orthodox Church made them saints in 2000.

Conspiracy theories blaming the Jews for spearheading the Bolshevik revolution were popular among the post-revolution Russian emigres and the Russian Orthodox Church abroad, and were later picked up by some hard-line nationalists.

Mr Gorin said his group was shocked and angered by the statements from both the bishop and the Investigative Committee, which he said sounded like a revival of the century-old ‘anti-Semitic myth’ about the killing of the imperial family.

Discussing the Tsar’s murder, Father Shevkunov claimed the ‘Bolsheviks and their allies engaged in the most unexpected and diverse ritual symbolism’.

This is the room where the tsar was shot. Nicholas and his family were canonised as passion bearers, a title commemorating believers who face death in a Christ-like manner, by the Russian Orthodox Church in 2000

How claims of ‘ritual murder’ are just the latest slur against Jews in Russia

Jews in Russia have long struggled against anti-Semitism both before, during and after the days of the Soviet Union.

Under the Tsars, the country’s five million Jews mostly lived in poverty and were confined to a Pale of Settlement in the west of the empire.

They faced discriminatory laws and were often the victims of anti-Jewish riots known as Pogroms, which were often organised by the royal family.

After the 1917 Russian Revolution, the new Bolshevik government abolished all restrictions on Jews and proclaimed their opposition to all forms of anti-Semitism.

Yet persecution soon began afresh, with synagogues and other Jewish properties confiscated by the state in 1919 under anti-religion laws.

Stalin, who took power in 1924, was known for his anti-Jewish outbursts, and used anti-Semitic tropes in his power struggle with Trotsky, who was of Jewish heritage.

By the 1940s, Soviet campaigns against ‘rootless cosmopolitans’ – which many took as a supposed euphemism for Jews – led to the deaths of several leading Jewish intellectuals.

After the Second World War, Nazi persecution of the Jews on Soviet soil was denied, and people of Jewish heritage accused of kowtowing to the Americans and influencing policy in Washington.

Thousands of Jews have emigrated to Israel over concerns about anti-Semitism in a phenomenon that has continued under the Putin regime.

He claimed that ‘quite a few people involved in the execution – in Moscow or Yekaterinburg – saw the killing of the deposed Russian emperor as a special ritual of revenge’.

And he alleged that Yakov Yurovsky, the organizer of the execution who was Jewish, later boasted about his ‘sacral historic mission.’

He put forward as evidence the claim that a bullet was assigned to eat royal but the majority of the bullets hit the tsar because ‘everybody wanted to be part of the regicide’ and ‘it was a special ritual for many’.

The ‘ritual’ claims were dismissed by the Prosecutor General’s Office in the 1990s but will be explored again as part of a new criminal investigation into the killing.

But Bishop Tikhon’s said his panel were taking the claims ‘very seriously’.

His claims carry particular weight given his reported close ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin and influence within the church.

An investigative committee has now launched a ‘psychological and historical evaluation’ into the matter as part of the on-going criminal case into the slaying of the Romanovs.

Marina Molodtsova, a senior Investigative Committee official, said the probe would ‘resolve issues of whether the Romanov family murder had a possible ritual component’.

Key members of a church commission linked to the criminal investigation ‘do not have any doubts’ the shooting was ‘ritualistic’, he said.

A staunchly pro-Putin MP, Natalia Poklonskaya, 37, has also claimed the tsar’s killing had ‘evil’ religious motives.

‘They murdered the entire royal family, they killed the children in front of their father, they killed the mother in front of the children,’ said the politician, formerly the chief prosecutor in Crimea. This is a crime, a frightening ritual murder.’

The 'ritual' claims were dismissed by the Prosecutor General's Office in the 1990s but will be explored again as part of a new criminal investigation into the killing

‘Many people are afraid to talk about it – but everyone understands that it happened. It is evil.’

Top Bolshevik Yakov Sverdlov – who specifically ordered the killing of the last tsar – was also Jewish, say supporters of this theory.

Alexander Boroda, president of the Federation of Jewish Communities of Russia, said the accusations – tantamount to a conspiracy theory – were plainly aimed at Jews, and risked stirring up hatred.

‘Accusing Jews of a ritual murder is one of the most ancient anti-Semitist slanders,’ he said.

‘It repeatedly causes persecutions resulting in deaths of hundreds and thousands of people.

‘But each time those accusations were considered by people free of anti-Semitic prejudices, it emerged that this slander is false.’

‘It’s regrettable that it is being advanced again, presenting libelous slander as a theory worthy of an inquiry,’ he said.

Judaism was the first religion to abolish human sacrifices and does not know the concept of a ‘ritual murder’, he said.

Tikhon is widely seen as Putin’s personal confessor and spiritual adviser.

The ultra-conservative churchman once said: ‘You can believe those rumours if you want, but they certainly are not spread by me.’

The pair were introduced to one another by exiled Russian banker Sergei Pugachev, estranged lover of British socialite and former BBC Horse People presenter, Alexandra Tolstoy.

Russia Has Awoken and the New Russian Revolution Has Deposed Yahweh

ed note–it is something of a dated article, but still very interesting to read in terms of understanding the seismic changes that have occurred in Russia and how it all plays out on the world scene today, and particularly viz a viz Syria and Iran.


Shortly after Vladimir Putin was elected president of Russia in 2000, the murdered family of Czar Nicholas was beatified. Until quite recently, the centers of Jewish power had hoped to preserve some idealized memories of the murderous Soviet system in the minds of the Russians, but it turned out to be a vain hope.

Because Bolshevism was formulated and executed by Jews, their power centers had retained fond hopes of being able some day to reconnect and reinstall some sort of Jewish lobby leverage in the Kremlin. These fond hopes were dashed by Vladimir Putin.

By the end of 2008, the Russians were expected to have decided on what archetype they preferred: Stalin’s “Patriotic War” or Czarism. Until quite recently, Stalin had remained slightly ahead of Czar Nicholas II . “Then, however, the Czar mysteriously pulled ahead.” (Die Welt, 17 July 2008, page 1) After that, the choice no longer had to be made.

The Jewish Lobby was of course hoping that a Czarist cult would never rise again, since the Czar had been the great adversary of the Bolshevik Jews. Now however, the Russians again see in Czar Nicholas II a kind of savior who, like Jesus, had dared to oppose the Pharisees.

Following on the heels of the organized collapse of the Soviet Union, the global Jewish Lobby was able to install Boris Yeltsin (alias Jelzman) in the Kremlin. Once they had seized control of Russia’s natural resources, they believed they could rule forever, or at least as long as they were operating under the protection of the US military forces. Not only did they control the military bloodhound USA, which they could let loose against any country that became troublesome; they also controlled Russia, whose energy wealth they could use to exploit and enslave the entire planet. Yeltsin-Jelzman allowed the Russian military forces to disintegrate rapidly.

In the early 1990s the Arab press investigated the Jelzman case and exposed Yeltsin as a puppet of the Lobby, providing additional background details. On 28 November 1992 the newspaper “Al Arab”, published in London, made the following announcement on the front page: “The name change was decided upon at the 20th Party Congress … Yeltsin is a Jew. Risselov, a member of the Volksunion, revealed that the family name of President Yeltsin was Jelzman, a German Jewish name. The 20th Party Congress then decided to change the family name of Boris Jelzman to Yeltsin … The reason given for this change was that the Russian people would be afraid of the name Jelzman since his grandfather Jelzman had murdered thousands of Russians under Beria.”

Everything had seemed to be going well for the Lobby. Then, out of a clear blue sky, Putin’s coup occurred.

He deposed the terrible Jelzman-Yeltsin. Today Yeltsin’s Jewish background is openly discussed even in the Establishment press, where as he is described as having “converted to Christianity”. For example, on page 1 of its issue of 17 July 2008, Die Welt refers to “Boris Yeltsin, the Communist who later converted to Christianity.”

When they brutally murdered the Czar’s family in Yekaterinburg on the night of 17 July 1918 in the house of the engineer Ipatjev, the Bolsheviks unwittingly established “…a cult that, 90 years later, is still as strong as ever.” (Die Welt, 17 July 2008, p. 1) This was true even though Jelzman did everything in his power to erase the memory of the Czar from Russian consciousness. “Boris Yelzin even had the Ipatjev house demolished without being able to stop the growing fondness for the Czar in Russia.” (Die Welt, 17 July 2008, page 1).

However, the Russian schools now teach that it was Jews who murdered the Czar’s family, which is probably the reason why even Wikipedia has begun reporting that the murderers were Jews, a fact that could not be mentioned in former times. “On 4 July 1918, the Cheka took over guarding the Romanovs in Yekaterinburg. They were accompanied by Jakov Jurovski… Jurovski was a Jew.” (from Wikipedia). Two additional Jewish assassins who joined the Jurovski murderers were Alexander Belobarodov and Filip Goloschtschokin.

Today the Russians weep when they think of the horrible crime. “Only the Jews would have been capable of such a terrible bloody crime” stated a participant in the memorial mass in front of the Church of the Blood that was held in Yekaterinburg in 2008.

According to eyewitness reports of the massacre, “the Czarina complained to Commandant Jurovski about the empty room in which they were held and she requested two chairs. Jurovski then had two chairs brought in, on which the Czarina and her ill son Alexi sat down. Jurovski ordered the other family members to stand in two rows behind mother and son, then brought in the execution detail. Jurovski informed the Czar that the government had ordered their execution and therefore, he was now going to shoot them. The Czar said nothing except the words ‘Forgive them Father, for they know what they do’ as Jesus said on the Cross. Then Commandant Jurovski shot him. All the other soldiers also shot Nicholas as well, and he died immediately. Then the firing squad began shooting wildly to kill all the other members of the family. When the shooting was over, Alex and three of his sisters were still alive and lying wounded on the floor. The bullets that were fired at the girls seemed to have been deflected. The soldiers then began bayoneting the victims. However, the bayonets became stuck in the girls’ bodices. This was because, during internment in Alexander Palace, the children and Lady-in-waiting Anna Demidova had sewed a large number of the family jewels and diamonds into a pillow and the girls’ bodices. On the evening they were murdered they were wearing these bodices, and in addition, Demidova attempted to deflect the bullets with the pillow. For this reason the execution lasted about 20 minutes until the last member of the family was dead. After the murders, Jurovski attempted to erase all traces of the crime.” (1)

According to a report released by Archbishop Wikenti on 17 July 2008, around 40,000 persons took part in a religious procession from Yekaterinburg to an abandoned mineshaft some 18 kilometers distant.

In conjunction with the memorial service for the Romanovs, copies of “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” were offered for sale.

The bodies of Czar Nicholas, his German wife Alexandra and their five children had been carried to that place after they had been shot by their Jewish murderers in the night of 17 July 1918 in Yekaterinburg. In conjunction with the memorial service for the Romanovs, copies of “The Protocols of the Elders of Zion” were offered for sale. Large numbers of printed pamphlets were distributed along with the Protocols. The printed materials were entitled “Why we hate the Jewish Mafia” and posed the question “Is This Xenophobia or Self Defense?” The student Ivan Kolsev, 20, who had wrapped himself in a Czarist banner, expressed the opinion of many when he said “Democracy has no future — we are returning to Monarchy!” On the banner was written “In honor of Russia: for Czar and Fatherland.” [Agence France-Presse (AFP), 28 July 2008.]

For the Russians, the Jews are guilty of having killed emissaries of God when they murdered the Romanov family, since the family has been beatified. “…Just as they once crucified Jesus” said a participant in the memorial services. “Nicholas and Alexandra were our father and mother — they were like Russia’s parents”said another of the faithful. Another participant in the memorial mass expressed enthusiasm for the return of the Czarism: “The Czar is God’s chosen on Earth, we must have a Czar.” (AFP 17 July 2008.)

The new Czarist cult is more than a revolution, it is the rebirth of the Russian nation after all the suffering the Bolsheviks inflicted on it. Venezuelan President Hugo Chavez expressed this view during his visit to Moscow at the end of July 2008: “Venezuela takes note of the rebirth of Russia with great and affectionate attention.” (Die Welt, 23 July 2008, p. 5)

President Medvedev then expressed sincere appreciation to President Chavez for his heartfelt interest. Since his first day as President of Russia, it has been Putin’s principal goal to enable Russia’s reawakening. He and his allies have always had a clear picture of the people who murdered the Romanovs along with 55 million other Russians.

It was always clear to Putin that these peoples’ primary aim was to suck Russia dry and annihilate it for all time with their unparalleled parasitism. A Kremlin politician close to Putin was quoted as saying about the then most influential Jews: “Boris Beresovski and Vladimir Gussinski are like bacteria that establish themselves in diseased bodies, but then die when the bodies grow healthy again.”[Jewish Telegraph Agency (JTA), 2 April 2002.] This statement reminds us of a passage from Mein Kampf: “The Jew is and will remain the eternal parasite, a freeloader that, like a malignant bacterium, spreads rapidly whenever a growth medium is made available to it.” (Chapter 11)

Vladimir Gussinski was the head of the Jewish Central Committee in Russia as well as chairman of the Jewish World Congress. After fleeing Russia for refuge in Israel, he stated to the world press that in Russia, “a new state ideology against the West is to be feared… It has many anti-Jewish characteristics.” He called the then Russian president, Vladimir Putin, an “extreme anti Semite and secret admirer of Hitler.” (Spiegel, 25/2000, p. 180)

In early July 2008 observers noted a new high point in Russia’s struggle against the Lobby, when the new US ambassador was installed in Berlin. Former chancellor Gerhard Schröder, an intimate friend of Putin, declined the invitation of the American ambassador, without explanation.

In the entire history of Post-War-Germany, or BRDDR, this had never before occurred. Such a snub could never have happened before, even in a dream. In addition to the fact that Schröder is not overly fond of the Lobby, he was certainly advised by his friend Putin to decline the invitation in order to demonstrate the new power relationship in Europe. “When the new American embassy is opened in Berlin, Gerhard Schröder was absent. The ex-chancellor had been invited by the Americans, but he declined the invitation… The reasons for the former chancellor’s failure to appear are not known.” (spiegel.de, 4 July 2008)
