The Torah Jews are the only anti Zionist Jewish collective. They are just very few but their message is clear, coherent and consistent.

The New Yorker: "The ridiculous deserves ridicule"


FLC

"... I know that the subject is serious; that is just one reason why the graphic, which he apparently made at Kinkos, is so ridiculous. And if Israeli intelligence thinks that’s what a real bomb looks like, maybe their other projections are off as well. I’m surprised he could get that thing past U.N. security.
Anyway, with the justification that the ridiculous deserves ridicule, I invite you to pile it on, using this photo as the basis for a caption contest.
I’ll start the ball rolling with one of mine own:
”And, what’s worse, if Wile E. Coyote ever gets hold of this, the Roadrunner is toast.”..."

'Why Qatar wants to invade Syria'


By Pepe Escobar

Make no mistake; the Emir of Qatar is on a roll.

What an entrance at the UN General Assembly in New York; Sheikh Hamad bin Khalifa al-Thani called for an Arab coalition of the willing-style invasion of Syria, no less. [1]

In the words of the Emir, "It is better for the Arab countries themselves to interfere out of their national, humanitarian, political and military duties, and to do what is necessary to stop the bloodshed in Syria." He stressed Arab countries had a "military duty" to invade.

What he means by "Arab countries" is the petromonarchies of the Gulf Counter-Revolution Club (GCC), previously known as Gulf Cooperation Council - with implicit help from Turkey, with which the GCC has a wide-ranging strategic agreement. Every shisha house in the Middle East knows that Doha, Riyadh and Ankara have been weaponizing/financing/providing logistical help to the various strands of the armed Syrian opposition engaged in regime change.

The Emir even quoted a "similar precedent" for an invasion, when "Arab forces intervened in Lebanon" in the 1970s. By the way, during a great deal of the 1970s the Emir himself was engaged in more mundane interventions, such as letting his hair down alongside other Gulf royals in select Club Med destinations, as this photo attests (he's the guy on the left).

'The Emir, in Club Med camouflage!'

 So is the Emir now preaching an Arab version of the R2P ("responsibility to protect") doctrine advanced by The Three Graces of Humanitarian Intervention (Hillary Clinton, Susan Rice and Samantha Power)?

This is certainly bound to go down well in Washington - not to mention Ankara and even Paris, considering French president Francois Hollande has just called for UN protection of "liberated zones" in Syria.

As for the Emir's Lebanon precedent, that's not exactly uplifting, to say the least. The so-called Arab Deterrent Force of 20,000 soldiers that entered Lebanon to try to contain the civil war overstayed its welcome by no less than seven years, turned into a Syrian military occupation of northern Lebanon, left officially in 1982 and still the civil war kept raging.

Imagine a similar scenario in Syria - on steroids.

A 'pretty influential guy'

As for the Emir's humanitarian - not to mention democratic - ardor, it's enlightening to check out what US President Barack Obama thinks about it. Obama - who defines the Emir as a "pretty influential guy" - seems to imply that even though "he himself is not reforming significantly" and "there's no big move towards democracy in Qatar", just because the emirate's per capita income is humongous, a move towards democracy is not so pressing.
 
So let's assume the Emir is not exactly interested in turning Syria into Scandinavia. That opens the way to an inevitable motive - connected to, what else, Pipelineistan.

Vijay Prashad, author of the recent Arab Spring, Libya Winter, is currently writing a series on the Syria Contact Group for Asia Times Online. He got a phone call from an energy expert urging him to investigate "the Qatari ambition to run its pipelines into Europe." According to this source, "the proposed route would have run through Iraq and Turkey. The former transit country is posing to be a problem. So much easier to go north (Qatar has already promised Jordan free gas)."

Even before Prashad concludes his investigation, it's clear what Qatar is aiming at; to kill the US$10 billion Iran-Iraq-Syria gas pipeline, a deal that was clinched even as the Syria uprising was already underway. [2]

Here we see Qatar in direct competition with both Iran (as a producer) and Syria (as a destination), and to a lesser extent, Iraq (as a transit country). It's useful to remember that Tehran and Baghdad are adamantly against regime change in Damascus.

The gas will come from the same geographical/geological base - South Pars, the largest gas field in the world, shared by Iran and Qatar. The Iran-Iraq-Syria pipeline - if it's ever built - would solidify a predominantly Shi'ite axis through an economic, steel umbilical cord.

Qatar, on the other hand, would rather build its pipeline in a non-"Shi'ite crescent" way, with Jordan as a destination; exports would leave from the Gulf of Aqaba to the Gulf of Suez and then to the Mediterranean. That would be the ideal plan B as negotiations with Baghdad become increasingly complicated (plus the fact the route across Iraq and Turkey is much longer).

Washington - and arguably European customers - would be more than pleased with a crucial Pipelineistan gambit bypassing the Islamic Gas Pipeline.

And of course, if there's regime change in Syria - helped by the Qatari-proposed invasion - things get much easier in Pipelineistan terms. A more than probable Muslim Brotherhood (MB) post-Assad regime would more than welcome a Qatari pipeline. And that would make an extension to Turkey much easier.

Ankara and Washington would win. Ankara because Turkey's strategic aim is to become the top energy crossroads from the Middle East/Central Asia to Europe (and the Islamic Gas Pipeline bypasses it). Washington because its whole energy strategy in Southwest Asia since the Clinton administration has been to bypass, isolate and hurt Iran by all means necessary. [3]

That wobbly Hashemite throne


All this points to Jordan as an essential pawn in Qatar's audacious geopolitical/energy power play. Jordan has been invited to be part of the GCC - even though it's not exactly in the Persian Gulf (who cares? It's a monarchy).

One of the pillars of Qatar's foreign policy is unrestricted support for the MB - no matter the latitude. The MB has already conquered the presidency in Egypt. It is strong in Libya. It may become the dominant power if there's regime change in Syria. That brings us to Qatar's help to the MB in Jordan.
At the moment, Jordan's Hashemite monarchy is wobbly - and that's a transcendental understatement.

There's a steady influx of Syrian refugees. Compound it with the Palestinian refugees that came in waves during the crucial phases of the Arab-Israeli war, in 1948, 1967 and 1973. Then add a solid contingent of Salafi-jihadis fighting Damascus. Only a few days ago one Abu Usseid was arrested. His uncle was none other than Abu Musab al-Zarqawi, the infamous former head of al-Qaeda in Iraq, killed in 2006. Usseid was about to cross the desert from Jordan to Syria.

Amman has been mired in protests since January 2011 - even before the spread of the Arab Spring. King Abdullah, also known as King Playstation, and photogenic Washington/Hollywood darling Queen Rania, have not been spared.

The MB in Jordan is not the only player in the protest wave; unions and social movements are also active. Most protesters are Jordanians - who historically have been in control of all levels of state bureaucracy. But then neo-liberalism reduced them to road kill; Jordan went through a savage privatization drive during the 1990s. The impoverished kingdom now depends on the IMF and extra handouts from the US, the GCC and even the EU.

Parliament is a joke - dominated by tribal affiliation and devotion to the monarchy. Reforms are not even cosmetic. A prime minister was changed in April and most people didn't even noticed it. In an Arab world classic, the regime fights demands for change by increasing repression.

Into this quagmire steps Qatar. Doha wants King Playstation to embrace Hamas. It was Qatar that promoted the meeting in January between the King and Hamas leader Khaled Meshaal - who had been expelled from Jordan in 1999. That left indigenous Jordanians wondering whether the kingdom would be swamped by yet another wave of Palestinian refugees.

Arab media - most of it controlled by the House of Saud - has been drowning in stories and editorials predicting that after the MB ascends to power in Damascus, Amman will be next. Qatar, though, is binding its time. The MB wants Jordan to become a constitutional monarchy; then they will take over politically after an electoral reform that King Abdullah has been fighting against for years.
Now the MB can even count on the support of Bedouin tribes, whose traditional allegiance to the Hashemite throne has never been wobblier. The regime has ignored protests at its own peril. The MB has called for a mass demonstration against the King on October 10. The Hashemite throne is going down, sooner rather than later.
It's unclear how Obama would react - apart from praying that nothing substantial happens before November 6. As for the Emir of Qatar, he has all the time in the world. So many regimes to fall - and become Muslim Brothers; so many pipelines to build.

US Says Libya Attackers Linked to Al-Qaeda


Local Editor
 
The US intelligence community said that attack on a US consulate in Libya was by militants linked to al-Qaeda, but noted that "many unanswered questions" remained.
US ambassador to Libya killed
"It remains unclear if any group or person exercised overall command and control of the attack, and if extremist group leaders directed their members to participate," Shawn Turner, spokesman for the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, said in a statement Friday.
"We do assess that some of those involved were linked to groups affiliated with, or sympathetic to Al-Qaeda."

US Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens and three other Americans were killed in the assault.

"As we learned more about the attack, we revised our initial assessment to reflect new information indicating that it was a deliberate and organized terrorist attack carried out by extremists," Turner explained.

But Turner stressed that despite "progress" made in the investigation, "there remain many unanswered questions."

9/11 Certainly a False Flag Operation: Mark Dankof



Almost two weeks have passed since the 11th anniversary of the 9/11 attacks, and scholars, journalists and authors are still trying to figure out the hidden realities behind the “most hideous terrorist attacks ever perpetrated in American soil,” as described by Victor Argothy of the University of Delware’s Disaster Research Center.


American journalist and radio host Mark Dankof
Israel’s involvement in the 9/11 attacks and the possibility that it might have been a false flag operation with the objective of laying the groundwork to attack Afghanistan, Iraq and other Muslim nations are among the most popular theories which the members of 9/11 Truth Movement have proposed.

Mark Dankof believes that they were the Israelis who masterminded and perpetrated the 9/11 attacks, and believes that there’s abundant evidence confirming this speculation.
On the 11th anniversary of the September 11, 2001 attacks, I conducted an in-depth interview with Mark Dankof to examine his viewpoints regarding the events that led to the collapsing of the twin towers of the World Trade Center, the traces of the footsteps of Israel in the attacks and the reasons why the United States and Israel employed these attacks to launch an all-out war against the Muslim world. What follows is the text of this interview.

Q: Mark, in your writings and broadcasts about 9/11, you’ve talked about the Israeli foreknowledge of the attacks. Is there compelling evidence to verify this? Do you mean that Israel was somehow involved in the attacks or may have benefited from them in one way or another?

A: I will reiterate what I said on Press TV. I believe Dr. Alan Sabrosky of the U. S. Army War College is correct. The Israeli Mossad pulled off the 9/11 attacks. They had the motive, the means, the opportunity, and the network in the domestic United States to keep their involvement from public exposure. As Dr. Sabrosky puts it, “It is 100% certain that 9/11 was a Mossad operation. Period.”

It was my broadcast colleague, Mark Glenn of The Ugly Truth, who did the initial exclusive interview on the air with Sabrosky, when the Good Doctor finally went public with what he knew. That single broadcast was the pivotal event on the airwaves internationally which began the process of unraveling the essence of what really happened and why, on September 11, 2001.

Consider just a few of the facts discussed by Dr. Robert Sungenis in his two-part series for Dr. E. Michael Jones’ Culture Wars (July/August 2012 edition and the current September 2012 edition available online). The Sungenis series is an extended review of Christopher Bollyn’s book, “Solving 9/11: The Deception That Changed the World.” Many of these facts are also accessible online through Wikispooks through their dossier entitled, “9/11: Israel Did It.”
Fact: The BBC reported on September 23, 2001 that most of the “nineteen Muslims” are still alive. Rex Tomb, Chief of Investigative Publicity for the FBI noted that the reason bin Laden and the Taliban have never been officially accused by the United States for orchestrating 9/11 is “because the FBI has no hard evidence connecting bin Laden to 9/11.” Dick Cheney stated in an interview with Tony Snow on March 26, 2006 that “We’ve never made the case, or argued the case that somehow Osama bin Laden was directly involved in 9/11. That evidence has never been forthcoming.” Robert Muller of the FBI admitted the same when he stated that, “In our investigation, we have not uncovered a single piece of paper either here in the U. S. or in the treasure trove of information that has turned up in Afghanistan and elsewhere that mentioned any aspect of the September 11th plot.”
Fact: Zionist Jew and Netanyahu pal, Larry Silverstein, obtained the lease for the Twin Towers just ten weeks before 9/11. He doubled the insurance and included a clause for “terrorists’ acts.” When it came time to collect, Silverstein claimed there were two incidents of “terror” since two buildings were hit by planes, which allowed him to seek for double indemnity. His victory in court was overseen by Zionist Jew Michael B. Mukasey. Silverstein later gave conflicting accounts of why he was not eating breakfast at the Windows of the World restaurant at the Twin Towers on 9/11, a complete departure from his usual routine. Or why his son, Roger, and daughter, Lisa did not show up for work as usual at the World Trade Center on that fateful morning. Take a look at what Bollyn, Sungenis, and Wikispooks chronicle about the astounding list of high-profile Zionist Jews connected to the Twin Tower complex who were all conveniently missing from the area on 9/11. Frank Lowy; Lewis Eisenberg; Ronald S. Lauder; Jules Kroll; Jerome Hauer. This is all especially interesting given the Jerusalem Post report that the foreign ministry of Israel had the names of 4,000 Israelis believed to be in the area of the Twin Towers or the Pentagon at the time of the attacks, yet only one Israeli is known to have died that morning. How did all of these Jews know to be absent that morning?

Maybe it has something to do with the admission of Jewish-run company Odigo [later purchased by Comverse Infosys, an Israeli company which specializes in phone and wiretapping] which had offices two blocks from the Twin Towers, that two of its employees received instant messages warning of a large-scale attack two hours before the planes hit the Twin Towers. The Israeli newspaper, Haaretz, carried the story. Two weeks after 9/11, the Vice President of Odigo, Alex Diamandis stated, “The messages said something big was going to happen in a certain amount of time, and it did–almost to the minute.” Bollyn and Sungenis note another oddity in all of this: the Israeli company, ZIM, which vacated its 10,000 square foot office space in the North Twin Tower only a few days before 9/11 even though the company lease ran to the end of 2001, losing $50,000 in the process. When the FBI’s Michael Dick began an investigation of this suspicious activity, Michael Chertoff removed him from the case.

Chertoff is an Israeli citizen; his cousin, Benjamin Chertoff, wrote the infamous article for Popular Mechanics that attempted to support the U. S. government’s position on 9/11 and to defuse the sharp criticism of American physicists and scientists which definitively stated that the official story of how the Towers came down was a scientific absurdity and impossibility. Chertoff’s mother, Livia Eisen, had been an agent for the Israeli Mossad. Chertoff also played a major role in the prosecution of the 1993 False Flag terror bombing of the World Trade Center eight years before. As Bollyn and Sungenis tell it, and as Wikispooks narrates the story, Chertoff was assigned the investigation of the aftermath of 9/11 as the Assistant Attorney General. He had the final authority on the removal of the steel girders from ground zero. This removal of crime evidence was undertaken by scrapyards and junkyards that were Zionist-owned. Two of the junkyards were Hugo Neu Schnitzer East and Metals Management Northeast. Hugo Neu is a Jewish immigrant. He invests Israeli venture capital with Nir Belzer who is the senior manager of Israel’s Millennium Materials Technologies Funds with Oren Gafri. Gafri served as an executive with Israeli Aircraft Industries, Ltd., Bedek division, which specialized in aircraft conversion. Gafri also trained in Israel’s nuclear program, including explosive coatings of super-thermite (the kind found in the dust of 9/11). It was another Zionist, Yoram Shalmon of PowerLoc Technologies, who contracted to remove the 250 tons of steel girders from ground zero.


In the case of Michael Chertoff, he was later made the head of the Department of Homeland Security. He used the Sensitive Security Information program to confiscate evidence to forestall investigation into 9/11, including the confiscation of the three private video tapes of the attack on the Pentagon. These tapes have never been released.

Then there is Philip Zelikow, an Israeli citizen like Chertoff. He ends up as the writer of the official United States Government Report on 9/11.
Fact: Steel melts only at 2,777 degrees Fahrenheit. Jet fuel burns no hotter than 1,517 degrees Fahrenheit. There was nothing in the World Trade Center buildings, barring explosives and thermite that could burn hotter than jet fuel. Strong circumstantial evidence suggests that a sophisticated form of super-thermite had been applied to large sections of the World Trade Center.
There are interesting super-thermite connections in this case when one considers the logical possibilities. There is the aforementioned Oren Gafri connection. Gafri served as an executive with Israeli Aircraft Industries, Ltd., Bedek division, which specialized in aircraft conversion. Gafri also trained in Israel’s nuclear program, including explosive coatings of super-thermite (the kind found in the dust of 9/11).

There may be another damning super-thermite connection Ehud Barak, the prime minister of Israel until March of 2001, came to the United States shortly after leaving office, as reported by Bollyn and Sungenis. He came, ostensibly, to work as a special advisor for Electronic Data Systems and as a consultant with SCP Partners, a Mossad-run private equity company focused on “security related” work … was his real cover to oversee the 9/11 attacks? Bollyn clearly suspects this on the basis of the fact that in 2001, SCP Partners did business with Metallurg Holding, Inc., as well as Advanced Metallurgical Group, N. V. (AMG), both sharing the same Wayne, PA address. AMG specializes in the production of super-thermite, and others which manufacture specialized coatings of nano-composites. This is the same Ehud Barak who was in the London studio of the BBC within minutes of the explosive demolitions of the Twin Towers on 9/11, declaring minus any evidence of culpability that there needed to be a “War on Terror” and “U. S. military intervention in Afghanistan.” Is this a case of the real perpetrator assigning the blame to convenient and demonized enemies?
 

Bollyn mentions two other interesting connections. LVI Group, Inc. and Controlled Demolition, Inc., which had previously done multi-million dollar contracts of research and development for the Department of Defense in areas of “asbestos abatement” and “preparing structures for demolition prior to the placement of charges.” And what may be the clincher in terms of troubling circumstantial evidence: Science Applications International Corporation (SAIC). SAIC provided all the experts who wrote papers for the NIST investigation of 9/11. It headed the investigation of the 1993 WTC bombing; it makes nanothermites through its subsidiary, Applied Ordinance Technology, and subcontracts to the Central Intelligence Agency to spy on CIA employees. It has employed Robert Gates and John Deutsch.

One thing is sure. Israelis Michael Chertoff and Philip Zelikow are not about to allow extensive examination and investigation of these disturbing pieces of information and the connections they suggest. They will debunk the insistence of American physicists like Stephen Jones of Brigham Young University that the scientific facts disprove the official conclusions. They will ignore the trails on accessibility to nano-thermite. They will ignore the questions surrounding Larry Silverstein’s obtaining of the Towers and the highly profitable character of the insurance arrangement that made him a ton of money. They will ignore the Odigo connection in terms of establishing Israeli foreknowledge of the event. They will ignore the fact that Building 7 of the World Trade Center came down instantaneously in its own footprint as the other buildings did, but without being struck by an airplane, what Alan Sabrosky terms “the tipping point.”

Then there is the Chertoff/Zelikow concealment of the Five Dancing Israelis on 9/11 who were arrested and later quietly allowed to return to Israel, courtesy of a direct order from Michael Chertoff. These Five Dancing Israelis were jumping for joy and photographing themselves with the collapse of the Twin Towers in the background, first in Liberty State Park after the initial impact. Later, other witnesses saw them celebrating on a roof in Weehawken, New Jersey, and subsequently in a parking lot in Jersey City. Residents of the area called police. The Israeli men were posing as Arabs running a New Jersey moving company. Two of the five were later positively identified as agents of the Israeli Mossad. These individuals were carrying multiple passports, thousands of dollars in cash, and tested positive for explosives as reported only by the Bergen Record in Paolo Lima, New Jersey. Three vans traced to these five Israelis were seized, one prior to the Lincoln Tunnel; another at the George Washington Bridge; the final one on King Street between 6th and 7th which the Israelis fled after they blew it up. The moving company which owned these vans, Urban Moving Systems (UMS), was a Mossad front. The two Mossad agents in this operation were the Kurzberg brothers, Paul and Sivan. Dominic Suter, another Mossad agent, was the registered owner of Urban Moving Systems (UMS), and allowed to flee the United States for Israel by the FBI on September 14, 2001, courtesy of Chertoff’s directive. After Suter’s escape, the other 5 men failed lie detector tests but still were allowed to flee. Three of these men, Oded Ellner, Omer Marmari, and Yaron Schmuel, show up on Israeli television in November 2001. Ellner took the lead on that show, and said that “Our purpose was to document the 9/11 event.” This too proves Israeli foreknowledge, as does the Odigo incident.
Fact: The American airport which was at the center of the 9/11 operation was Boston’s Logan Airport. Who provided security at that airport on that fateful day? The Israeli airport security firm International Consultants on Targeted Security (ICTS) is the answer.
Fact: Who had control of security at the World Trade Center since 1987? The answer is the Israeli Mossad, as documented by Christopher Bollyn. In 1987, the Mossad procured the contract under the name of Atwell Security, a subsidiary of the Eisenberg Group under Shaul Eisenberg of the Mossad. The New York representative for Atwell at that time was Peter Zvi Malkin, who joined the Israeli Haganah at age twelve, nabbed Adolf Eichmann in 1960, and was an explosives expert. Malkin worked closely with Rafael “Dirty Rafi” Eitan, the senior Mossad agent who ran the Jonathan Pollard espionage operation in the 1980s while working out of the Israeli Embassy in Washington, and who also ran the PROMIS computer software alternation plot. The PROMIS plot enabled Israel and Communist China to siphon American nuclear secrets from Los Alamos Nuclear Laboratories, using Israeli asset and British media mogul Robert Maxwell as the broker of the altered computer program. My review of Gordon Thomas’s Seeds of Fire will brief your readers and viewers on this one.

The Atwell/Mossad security contract for the World Trade Center, as Bollyn and Sungenis tell it, was one the Port Authority of New York felt compelled to cancel in 1987 when it was revealed that one Avraham Shalom Ben-Dor, former head of the Israeli Shin Bet, was running the Atwell contract while working with Rafi Eitan. Bollyn and Sungenis also tell us that the cancellation of this contract forced Mossad to come up with a new one, which they did. Jules Kroll and Kissinger connected-Maurice Greenberg, the CEO of the bailed out AIG Insurance Company, Jackie Kennedy boyfriend, and associate of Shaul Eisenberg of the Asian branch of the Mossad, put it together.

This is the tip of the Israeli connections in this case, as Christopher Bollyn and Robert Sungenis put it together. Sungenis has done a couple of radio shows with me on the subject. Bollyn’s book and Sungenis’ review cover much, much more, including the Ptech-Guardium network.

Q: The mainstream media and influential Jewish groups in the United States vilify the critics of the official accounts of the 9/11 attacks as conspiracy theorists and rebuff their arguments about the possible involvement of Mossad in the attacks. What do you think in this regard? How should the 9/11 Truth Movement uphold its objectives and confront the defamation and smear campaign headed by the state-owned mainstream media?

A: The only course of action is to continue to present the known facts, first on the scientific evidence, secondly on the party that had the motive, the means, the opportunity, and the resources to cover up the deed after the fact. We are less than candid when we fail to acknowledge that the Zionist control of the six major American media conglomerates is monolithic, and makes Corporate Media a purchased accomplice in what is going on. This fact, and Zionist control of the Federal Reserve Board (money supply) and Presidential and Congressional elections through PAC money and media control, makes for a completely unlevel playing field. In the case of the 9/11 Truth Movement, the chief strategy is clearly the utilization of the Internet, and foreign media outlets and journalists, to get the word out domestically and internationally. We have to do an end run around Corporate Media, their ownership, their agents of influence, and pursue guerrilla strategies. This is what Mark Glenn and I are doing with The Ugly Truth, and with our occasional appearances on Press TV and Russia Today. We have no money, no corporate benefactors, and plenty of adversaries with a lot of animosity toward us and plenty of their own benefactors in marginalizing us professionally with demonization and malicious untruth on the Internet.
The job that Republican congressional candidate in Maryland, Kenneth R. Timmerman, attempted to do on me with the help of an ex-friend of mine, Howard Phillips of the Constitution Party and Washington’s Conservative Caucus, in a piece for the Richard Mellon Scaife-financed Accuracy in Media entitled, “Tehran TV Loves Ron Paul,” is a case in point. This goes back to an article I wrote in 2007. Timmerman threatened to sue me if I didn’t withdraw the piece. I didn’t withdraw. He then resorted to the sort of thing that appeared this year in Accuracy in Media. This is the way it is. I have since commented on Timmerman in a radio broadcast of September 5th, 2012. I have also responded to Howard Phillips in writing. You can evaluate the evidence for yourself on what is going on here. Mantiq al-Tayr covered some of these shenanigans in Stealth Zionism. What is important to see here is the extent to which the American Right specifically, and the American political and journalistic enterprise generally, has been hijacked by these Zionist Agents of Influence. This even includes elements of the Libertarian Party, as I recently demonstrated in my piece on Wayne Allyn Root.
It all points to Israel. The American public needs to understand that the entire history of this State is rooted in racism, terror, racial genocide, theft, and False Flag Operations. Look at the King David Hotel Bombing in Jerusalem in 1947; Deir Yassin; the Lavon Affair; Israel’s deliberate attack on the USS Liberty on June 8th, 1967; the Pollard spy case and the subsequent AIPAC, Ben-Ami, and Stewart Nozette spy cases. Your readers and viewers need regular acquaintance with a resource like Grant Smith’s The Israel Lobby Archive, for the Institute of Research: Middle Eastern Policy where these topics are concerned. This is clearly a State that would have no hesitation to pull off a False Flag operation in New York on September 11, 2011, if they felt it benefited them, as Benjamin Netanyahu himself has stated it did. He said the day after 9/11 that [where Israel's interest is concerned], “It’s very good.” He also stated that “We are benefiting from one thing, and that is the attack on the Twin Towers and Pentagon, and the American struggle in Iraq. . . . these events swung American public opinion in our favor.”


I have a suggestion for those interested in the truth and international dissemination of the truth before time runs out. It may already be too late. One is to see that the independent film producer, Merlin Miller of Americana Pictures, gets the funding he needs to produce his completed movie screenplay on Israel’s premeditated attack on the USS Liberty, entitled “False Flag.” The second is that the funding be brought forth to put Michael Collins Piper’s book on the Kennedy Assassination, Final Judgment, into cinematic production. Why? If the American public ever discovers what the State of Israel has been doing at their expense, and why, the Zionist enterprise will be finished. This is why Merlin Miller recently ventured into Tehran for the New Horizon Independent Film Festival hosted by Director Mohammad Tayyeb and a host of others. Miller is a West Point graduate, former American Army Officer and Paramount Pictures producer. He is sick of what the Zionist Lobby is doing to this country, and to the rest of the world. He needs our help to level the cinematic playing field with this project. Decent people everywhere will profit if it comes to pass.

I want to make something absolutely clear. Involvement in this is not for the faint of heart. Dr. Philip Giraldi, former CIA Station Chief, head of the Council for the National Interest, and columnist for The American Conservative and Antiwar.com, has warned Mark Glenn and a few of the rest of us that we may want to join Giraldi in being abroad after the American elections. Why? Draw your own conclusions regarding what may well be soon upon all of us. The clock is ticking. It is terrifying. And Israel’s propaganda machine in the United States is kicking in to make it happen, everyone from Rupert Murdoch and Fox News to John Hagee, the rotund Zionist-mouthpiece of Cornerstone Church in San Antonio.

Q: Can we interpret the 9/11 attacks in the context of a false flag operation aimed at providing the U.S. government with a convincing pretext to wage wars in the Middle East and dominate the vast oil reserves of the region?

A: This is clearly my interpretation, both in terms of oil and natural gas resources and pipelines, as well as providing Netanyahu and his Likudniks the pretext to expand the borders of Eretz Yisrael from the Nile River to the Tigris and Euphrates. The position papers of the Project of the New American Century (PNAC) entitled, “A Clean Break: A Strategy for Securing the Realm,” and the September 2000 PNAC production of Rabbi Dov Zakheim, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Paul Wolfowitz and Company entitled, “Rebuilding America’s Defenses,” are prima facie evidence of this, in my opinion. It is noteworthy that in the September 2000 release, the authors advocate another “catastrophic and catalyzing event–like Pearl Harbor” to get the American public behind a perpetual war footing and military presence in the Middle East and Central Asia. Reading these PNAC releases in conjunction with Robert Stinnett’s book on FDR and Pearl Harbor entitled, “Day of Deceit,” and Pat Buchanan’s review of Herbert Hoover’s diary on FDR and Pearl Harbor, should contextualize how ominous this reference really is.

We are headed for a Third World War spearheaded by the Zionist/Talmudic Ideology of Racial Supremacy, Jewish International Banking, and Oil and Natural Gas Consortiums. It will be sold to the American public as something in their own interest and in the interest of protecting the homeland. This is absolutely absurd. Last night, when watching an NFL football game, I witnessed an outlandish United States Marine Corps recruiting ad which showed a bunch of American kids in high technology military uniforms and helmets, the latest automatic weaponry, and plenty of zeal, disembarking from amphibious vehicles and charging into the teeth of enemy fire and smoke on a shoreline The orchestrated music in the background and the video-game appearance of the ad, were topped off by the punchline of the advertised appeal to join the War Machine: Which Way Will You Run? Goebbels would have been proud. Unfortunately for the kids who may be motivated to sign up courtesy of this NFL halftime advertisement, they’ll discover an amphibious assault launched on Iran in the Persian Gulf theatre is not a video game. And the American public will discover Netanyahu’s agents in the United States have sold them an entire bill of goods once again.

Q: According to Amnesty International, of the 173 men being kept at the Guantanamo Bay prison, only three have convicted and their trial “failed to meet international fair trial standards.” What’s your viewpoint regarding this horrendous detention facility which President Obama had promised to close, the people who are being kept there under charges of terrorism and the destiny which awaits them?

A: It is clearly unacceptable. But it mirrors Obama’s commitment to the ongoing development of a domestic American police state, as I said on Press TV. An American President whose Justice Department actually argues in public has the authority to order the assassination of American citizens on suspicion of terrorist activities or involvement with a terrorist group, without charges, trial, and legal representation, has a non-existent view of the American Constitution, Bill of Rights, and habeas corpus. This parallels Obama’s continuation of the PNAC/Bush/Cheney/Wolfowitz foreign policy in the Middle East. Millions of people who voted for this guy have been betrayed. The vexing quandary is that the only alternative to him is Mitt Romney, clearly bought and paid for by the Israeli Lobby, as the Sheldon Adelson connection underscores. And Congress is also bought and paid for in terms of Netanyahu’s machine. Just take a look at the yearly list of Congressional contributions to political candidates emanating from Israel-friendly PACs as published by the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs. The evil fruits of all of this are evident, and underscore Dr. Philip Giraldi’s friendly warning to anti-Zionist, pro-freedom, antiwar activists that they might enjoy living somewhere else in the near future. The nightmare of Palestine, Gaza, Lebanon, Iraq, Afghanistan, Syria, and soon Iran, will be accompanied by the continued transformation of the United States into a country whose economy, foreign policy, government, media, and educational establishment are simply enslaved to what Greg Felton refers to as the Zionist Parasite. I no longer recognize the America of my youth. Others tell me the same thing. At least a few of us understand why this has happened, and what it likely means for the future.

Q: Do you see the 9/11 events as some kind of justification for waging a military, media and cultural war against Islam? Following the attacks, we have seen a tremendous rise of Islamophobic sentiments in the U.S. and Europe, and offensive insults to the Islamic sacraments. You remember the Jyllands-Posten cartoons ridiculing Prophet Muhammad, the burning of the Holy Quran by Pastor Terry Jones, the recent anti-Islamic movie by Sam Bacile and other attacks on the Islamic values in the West. What’s your evaluation of these events and their connection to the 9/11 attacks?

A: There is a direct connection of all of this to Israeli money and Jewish interests. The Think Progress report proves it. This is just the tip of the iceberg The plan is to desecrate the Islamic faith, as Jewish interests subverted and financed the earlier American Christian cultural demise and eclipse with pornography, abortion-on-demand, the homosexual rights movement, and movies and TV shows that trashed orthodox Christianity, the substitutionary atonement of Christ, the Virgin Mary, and the New Testament. When there are angry protests against this desecration of Islam in North Africa, the Middle East, Central Asia, and the Indian Subcontinent, the Zionists will have succeeded in demonizing Islamic people of faith as violent, irrational, dark-skinned extremists.

The subliminal message in the West is that Arabs and Iranians aren’t truly human beings made in the Image of God and that invading and occupying their countries is legitimate and honorable, while killing them and destroying their families and communities isn’t a problem for a “civilized” society that wants to help itself to their property and natural resources. This all serves the Zionist Eretz Yisrael agenda, the Oil and Natural Gas Consortiums, and the Bankers. It also serves to weaken legitimate Christianity and Islam by pitting them against each other when they should be in natural alliance, facilitating the destruction of the opposition to the New World Order Ben Gurion envisioned. We must not fall for this.
Decent people in the West and in the Islamic world must join forces against this evil Divide and Conquer strategy. This is why my radio partner, Mark Glenn, started his Crescent and Cross outreach some years ago. Glenn was one of the first to recognize how the Master Plan of the Hidden Hand was being put together. He’s been proven right through time, as the Sam Bacile film release corroborates. Eric Margolis clearly tagged this latest piece of cinematic trash “Neo-Conservative pornography” serving the interest of those promoting the War of Civilizations. That War of Civilizations is clearly synonymous with the Zionist agenda and gameplan. They are one and the same.
Q: Reacting to the 9/11 attacks, the Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “It’s very good… Well, it’s not good, but it will generate immediate sympathy [for Israel].” In what ways have the 9/11 events served the interests of the Israeli regime? Will Tel Aviv continue to benefit from the repercussions of the 9/11?

A: In the short term, it created the climate of American public support for the idiotic and destructive policies which followed September 11, 2001, including using the American military as a Janissary Force in support of the Likud/Netanyahu agenda in Palestine, the Middle East, and Central Asia, while heading for national economic bankruptcy while doing so. This policy of Likud is an extension of the earlier Irgun and Stern Gang policy shared by David Ben Gurion himself: to “restore the Kingdom of David and Solomon to its biblical borders,” the so-called Eretz Yisrael, or Greater Israel vision for not only controlling the territory from the Nile River to the Tigris and Euphrates Rivers, but governing the entire planet from a Jewish-controlled Jerusalem in global control of the International Banking System and all the nations of the earth in subservience to it. These pro-Zionist zealots in John Hagee’s “Christian” cult are operating in self-delusion and self-contradiction at precisely this point. How does support of World Government and the New World Order equate with being “pro-America?” How does commitment to Jesus Christ and his Kingdom equate with support for something rooted in a doctrine of racial supremacy, violence, theft, and deception? What is the New Testament’s understanding of the composition of the eschatological evil of 2 Thessalonians 2 and Revelation 13?

Exposure of the nature and methodology of Zionism, combined with the catastrophic consequences for those who support it in the United States and Europe, will change Israel’s status as a cunning beneficiary of 9/11 to its ultimate victim. I predict that there will be a backlash against Zionism and the Israeli Lobby once the disaster they have crafted for everyone else completely materializes. It may take a Third World War and a global economic collapse to facilitate that. But it will happen. It will make Iranian backlash against the American and British policies in Iran from 1953 to 1979 look like child’s play by comparison. Those who truly planned, plotted, and implemented what happened in New York City on September 11, 2001, will rue the day they did.

Q: Do you find any connection between the 9/11 attacks and the long-run policies of the United States government in denigrating Iran and endangering its interests in the region? It was after the 9/11 attacks that George W. Bush declared his War on Terror and branded Iran as part of an Axis of Evil. He had devised plans to attack Iran, but his term ended and he couldn’t fulfill his promise of invading Iran. What’s your take on that?

A: American machinations go back to Kermit Roosevelt’s Operation Ajax in 1953. The Islamic Revolution in Iran in 1979 was a response to what the United States had been doing in that country in the previous quarter of a century, among many other things. Since 1979, it is clear that Zionist and American imperial interests were interested in bringing back an Iranian regime that could be controlled by these interests. Bush was demonizing Iran as part of the Axis of Evil, clearly at the behest of the Bankers, the Oil Consortiums, and the PNAC/Zionist crowd. A future preemptive military strike on Iran would meet with the approval of the Oil Consortiums and Saudi Arabia, the Bankers who want to preserve the declining American dollar as the reserve currency of the planet, and Israel’s Likudniks. This is the alliance which is creating trumped up charges about Iran’s nuclear program and their alleged threat to the survivability of the planet. The only people threatening the planet and world peace are the people trying to get this war started. Make no mistake about it.

Q: And finally, what’s your analysis of the U.S. mainstream media’s coverage of the 9/11 attacks and its aftermaths? Which trajectory and policy line did they follow? Now, almost one decade after the attacks, how are they reacting to the different controversies surrounding the event?

A: The mainstream U.S. media, as we have already seen, sustained the myth regarding the perpetrators of the 9/11 attacks and the legitimacy of American military operations in the Middle East and Central Asia thereafter. They did so as agents of Zionism, Banking, Oil, and Multinational Consortiums and Interests. This is why the employment of Alternative Media, the Internet, and Foreign Media is so essential in removing the veil regarding the role of the U.S. mainstream media in perpetrating fraud and tragedy. The falsehoods and mythologies they continue to perpetrate on Pearl Harbor, the Kennedy Assassination, the USS Liberty attack, and 9/11 must be absolutely exposed and debunked, not simply in the interest of a recovery of historical truth, but to accomplish the defenestration of Mainstream Media once and for all. This would remove them as an effective force in selling the False Flag incident soon to come which is being planned to legitimize and sell a preemptive military attack on Iran. Their absolute defenestration forever would be a prelude to a cleansing of all of the other corrupt American and global institutions corrupted by the Mark of the Beast. Their comprehensive discrediting and defeat would give the rest of us a foothold in regaining control of our respective houses. Let the effort begin.

The Powerplays behind "The Innocence of Muslims"

 

by Thierry Meyssan

Israel’s big ploy moves ahead in the shadow of the demonstrations and reactions to the film "The Innocence of Muslims." However, the appearance of Hezbollah on the scene has reversed the situation, which could prompt Tel Aviv to call off the operation.

JPEG - 22.7 kbThe international reactions to the film by "Sam Bacile" are more and more incomprehensible if taken at face value, ignoring who is behind it and what their objectives are.
 
This provocation designed to instigate a clash of civilizations is very different from previous ones. It’s goal is not to stigmatize Islam vis-à-vis Western populations to elicit hatred toward the Muslims but is rather directed at Muslims to insult them and thereby incite hatred toward Westerners. This is not "Islamophobia"; it is "Islam-bashing" and its objective is to arouse anger among Muslims and direct that anger toward specific targets: those who in the U.S. or among their allies wish to interrupt the cycles of wars begun on September 11, 2001.

No one knows if the film, "The Innocence of Muslims," really exists in full-length form. So far, only a thirteen-minute clip has emerged, the most offensive parts of which were dubbed over the soundtrack at a later date. First placed on YouTube, the video had no impact until it was diffused in Arabic by the Salafist television station, Al-Nas. Salafist groups then reacted violently but instead of attacking the station or its Saudi sponsors, they turned their ire on American diplomatic representatives.

The State Department was warned on September 9—two days before the release of the film by the Salafist television station—that several of its embassies would be attacked on the 11th. Yet this alert was not taken seriously and diplomatic personnel were not informed of the threat. The State Department had been expecting anti-American demonstrations to take place to mark the anniversary of the September 11th attacks.

It has since been established that behind the Benghazi mob, a commando was already prepared to attack the Consulate and then the fortified villa which was to be used as a safehouse in the case of a serious crisis.

The target of the operation was the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Chris Stevens. This specialist in Near-Eastern Affairs was known both for his American imperialist views but also his anti-Zionist ones. This was confirmed by the special Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat as he deplored the death of a diplomat who had done much to comprehend the point of view of the Palestinian people and in turn make that viewpoint understood in Washington.

A second target was to be designated to punish France for having aligned herself with U.S. positions. Paris, in fact, refuses to let itself be dragged into a war against Iran and also refuses to get itself more deeply enmeshed in the Syrian quagmire. Consequently, a whole new provocation was launched, employing a satirical magazine that has for years relayed the Neo-conservative viewpoint within the French Left. Anticipating the consequences, France immediately suspended activity at twenty of its embassies and deployed heavy security around them.

At home, the French government presented itself as the guarantor of the freedom of expression. Accordingly, it defends the right of the enemies of Islam to indulge in blasphemous caricatures. But then, openly contradicting itself, the same government announced a prohibition of any demonstration hostile to the film or the magazine, thus denying freedom of expression to the defenders of Islam.

In the French tradition, freedom of expression is considered a foundational condition of democracy. It therefore is accompanied with prohibitions against libel and defamation seen as threatening to democratic debate. The main characteristic of "Innocence" is that it has no connection to historical reality and presents no critique of Islam. It is entirely composed of defamatory scenes. However, libel is not a human right.

Returning to the realm of geopolitics, "The Innocence of Muslims" is reminiscent of the operation which unfolded around the publication of The Satanic Verses. It was 1988 and Iran had just triumphed over Iraq thanks to massive support from the West. In few years, the Imam Khomeini had transformed a colonized population into a nation of warriors. He drew from his religion the strength that allowed him to transform the country and to defeat the enemy. In order to fracture this dangerous Islamic Republic, MI6 commissioned a work from the British writer, Salman Rushdie. Rouhoullah Khomeini immediately issued a religious decree condemning him to death. The campaign halted immediately and the fatwa though maintained, was not carried out.

On this occasion, Teheran should have reacted just as promptly. But Iran was in a corner; in condemning the film it would be playing the game of those pressuring Washington to go to war against Iran. The tactical solution emerged from the intervention by new protagonists. At the outset, the Ayatollah Ali Khamenei condemned the film by affirming that the enemy was Zionism. Then, at a later stage, Hezbollah Secretary-General Hassan Nasrallah positioned himself at the head of the movement. In Beirut, during an impassioned speech and facing a galvanized audience, he forced those spreading the insults to face up to their responsibilities. Hezbollah’s eruption onto the scene modifies the equation dramatically. 

We are witnessing a shift from the atrocies committed by small-scale disorganized Salafist groups, easily manipulated by Israel, to a warning issued by an extensive, highly-structured organization, operating with combat-ready cells within numerous countries. This time, it is Tel-Aviv who’s in a trap; it has lost control of a protest movement that could at any moment turn against Israel.

For its part, the Obama Administration to extricate itself from the situation issued multiple soothing declarations for the benefit of Muslims but displayed a total lack or solidarity with France. Instead, it condemned the contradictions of French policy, hoping to push in the direction of Paris the smoking powder keg before it explodes in its own face.

Whatever the case, Benjamin Netanyahu is not letting up on the pressure, demanding that Barack Obama trace "a red line" at the militarized nuclear ambitions he attributes to Iran and demanding that the U.S. president go to war when he deems the Iranians will have crossed it.

What Really Matters!



When all gets dark
And life loses its colours
When evil tightens the grip
And the wicked leads the way
When fall falls before its time
and frost grows around
When your heart is torn and worn,
and you feel like throwing it away
Don't give up, just wait a little while,
Turn your back
Close your eyes and
Remember what you have forgotten
Try to find if you've lost, 
Apologize if you've hurt,
Forgive if you have been hurt,
Caress if you've been deprived,
Pursue, if you have dream
Share if you've been bereft,
Giggle if you've been aggrieved,
Embrace if you've been shun,
Give if you've been denied,
Excel if you've been scorned,
Feed if you've tasted hunger

Rejoice if you've felt somber
Accompany those who know

Hold on tight to those you love,

Cherish those who care for you,
Because life is too short
and it is full of wonder
