The United Jewish Kingdom


Gilad Atzmon – gilad.co.uk May 28, 2012

The Telegraph( Click Here ) reported yesterday that “ministers have criticised Britain’s biggest exam board after pupils were asked to explain ‘why some people are prejudiced against Jews’ as part of a GCSE (General Certificate of Secondary Education).
Apparently more than 1,000 teenagers are believed to have sat the religious studies test papers, which challenged pupils to assess the reasons behind anti-Semitism.
The Assessment and Qualifications Alliance, which set the exam, rightly said that the question acknowledged that “some people hold prejudices” – they probably expected the students to examine the reasons that lead to anti Jewish feelings rather than simply justifying them.
Michael Gove, the Education Secretary who is notorious for his pro Israeli stand and his intimate relationships with the Jewish lobby, has managed to produce a particularly lame statement that should disqualify him from any holding any position related to education.

To suggest that anti-Semitism can ever be explained, rather than condemned, is insensitive and, frankly, bizarre,

 

antisemitism

 

Gove told The Jewish Chronicle.  The ‘education’ minister should actually accept that every social phenomenon or tendency should be subject to an academic scrutiny, scientific research and critical examination. The education minister should actually encourage critical thinking and freedom of thought, however, being one of the pillars of the CFI (conservative Friends of Israel) we shouldn’t really expect a drop of integrity from Minister Gove.
Jon Benjamin, chief executive of the infamous ultra Zionist Board of Deputies of British Jews  (BOD), said:

Clearly this is unacceptable and has nothing whatsoever to do with Jews or Judaism.

Benjamin and the BOD have been pouring news about the ‘rise’ of anti Semitism for years. One would wonder why are they now tormented by the attempt to question the reasoning behind the phenomenon that concerns them so much and for so long.
The exam board insisted that the question was part of a paper focusing on Judaism and the “relevant part of the syllabus covers prejudice and discrimination with reference to race, religion and the Jewish experience of persecution”.
But here comes the interesting bit. While the question is fully legitimate and deserves a thorough examination, one may wonder how would the exam board expect to mark some academically valid possible answers. For instance, how would a board’s examiner mark a young truth telling British student who may suggest that anti Jewish feelings could be realised as a direct reaction to the concerning facts that it was the Jewish Lobby led by Lord Levy that financed the Labour government that took us into an illegal War in Iraq? The student may argue that some people mistakenly identify Jews (as a collective) with the horrendous non-ethical acts of just a few Jews, this is where prejudice, plays its role.  Bearing in mind it was also Jewish chronicle writers such as David Aaronovitch and Nick Cohen who were supporting this criminal act in the mainstream media, such an answer is coherent and consistent with the facts.  Another honest student may suggest that with 80% of the Tory MPs (including education minister Michael Gove ) being CFI  members there is a reason to believe that the British Government is under the control of a foreign power. Following the pressure of the CFI, the Tory government recently amended the British Universal Jurisdiction law just to allow Israel war criminal to visit the Kingdom. I guess that some students must be clever enough to notice that acts taken by British politicians who shamelessly attempt to appease their pro Israeli paymasters on the expense of British values and ethical consideration actually expose Jews in this country to some potential animosity. How would the exam board mark such a reasonable and critical young and innocent thinking?
It seems as if the exam board is not really prepared to tackle the issue seriously. Its representative told the Jewish Chronicle

we would expect [students to refer] to the Holocaust to illustrate prejudice based on irrational fear, ignorance and scapegoating.

In other words, the British education system admits here openly that it expects students to repeat textbook ready-made answers rather than thinking critically and thoroughly. Is it really ‘irrational’  to be tormented by the irritating idea that the vast majority  of your leading party MPs are friends of a non-ethical, racist and expansionist foreign power? Is it reasonable to wonder why Jewish Chronicle Writers were over represented in some pro war advocacy? Is it really unreasonable for a young British student to ask why the American Jewish Lobby AIPAC is pushing for a war against Iran that can escalate into a nuclear conflict? Shouldn’t British students try to examine the relationships between the Jewish Lobby and the Jewish community? Shouldn’t Religious students try to examine the complex relationship between Jews, Judaism and Jewishness? Shouldn’t they look into the relationship between The Old Testament and IDF’s crimes against humanity? For sure they need do, this is actually the real meaning of education.  To educate is to teach how to learn said Martin Heidegger, but in Britain 2012 Education means to teach student how to answer the appropriate kosher answer.
As it happens the exam board reacted quickly and submissively to Jewish pressure. Its representative said

the board is obviously concerned that this question may have caused offence, as this was absolutely not our intention.

I guess that the exam board who were obviously subject to some relentless pressure may now be able to form their own answer to the question. They may grasp by now what is to root cause of ‘anti Jewish prejudice’ and it has nothing to do with the ‘holocaust’, ignorance’ or ‘irrationality’. It is actually the natural reaction to abuse of our most precious intellectual right, the freedom to think.
Another uniquely banal mind Rabbi David Meyer, the executive head of Hasmonean  High School, told the Telegraph that the question had “no place” in an exam.

The role of education is to remove prejudices and not to justify them,” he said.

It is pretty amusing or actually sad to find out that a Rabbi and an executive head of a Jewish school doesn’t know the difference between  ‘question’ and  ‘justification’. However, Rabbi Meyer, surely knows that Rabbinical and Talmudic education encourages debate and critical thinking. I wonder why Rabbi Meyer doesn’t approve the idea that Goyim teenager should also learn how to think critically and even learn how to debate?
Seemingly, the Telegraph found only one single voice of reason in the entire kingdom.  Clive Lawton, formerly an A-level chief examiner for religious studies, said: “I do understand why people might react negatively to the question, but it is a legitimate one.”
If anyone including Michael Gove and the BOD want to prevent the rise of anti Jewish feelings and prejudice in general they may want to look briefly in the mirror. It is their attitude that put Jews at a growing risk. As it happens, it is always Jewish power exercised by just a very few that introduces danger to the entire Jewish community and beyond.

Inside Iran: A view from the booming, modern streets of Tehran


Paul Koring – Globe and Mail May 25, 2012

Big, boisterous and booming, Tehran defies the caricature so often painted in the West portraying Iran as a repressed, bitter, colourless society, throttled by sanctions and in the relentless grip of dour-faced mullahs.

Tehran seems utterly transformed since my first grim wartime visit to Iran in 1988, near the end of a bloody eight-year conflict that left a million people dead.

Even before landing, and even at 3 a.m., Tehran is vast and sprawling, a carpet of lights sweeping down from the cool heights of the wealthy northern neighbourhoods to the overcrowded poor slums in the south.

A mother and her two daughters stand on a corner in Jolfa, where young people socialise. Click to enlarge

By day, it’s a chaotic, traffic-choked modern city of more than 10 million (perhaps 15 million, if weekday commuters are included), capital of a nation defiantly proud of its history, culture and heritage and intent on reasserting itself as the region’s most powerful player.

For much of the Arab world, Iran remains the historic Persian rival and enemy. Israel sees the Islamic Republic as an existential threat, one that has called for the destruction of the Jewish state. Successive U.S. administrations see it as a rogue, terrorism-sponsoring state. According to Human Rights Watch, Iran’s theocracy is engaged in a “broad-based campaign … to severely weaken civil society by targeting journalists, lawyers, rights activists, and students” after the 2009 post-election demonstrations.

As the propaganda war rages and a confrontation looms over its controversial nuclear program, Iran forges ahead.

Its capital doesn’t look beleaguered. Cranes festoon the skyline. Modern blocks of multimillion-dollar apartments march up the Alborz mountain foothills in prime locations north of the city. Hundreds of thousands are betting on a housing boom. Fuelled by vast reserves of oil and gas, Iran’s economy has boomed even as successive U.S. administrations have attempted to isolate it.

As far away as Karaj, 30 kilometres to the west, modern new housing complexes, mostly high-rises but also planned communities of single-family dwellings, are sprouting in a fast-growing corridor that resembles the edge cities in the United States. A four-lane highway and high-speed commuter trains bring tens of thousands into Tehran daily.

As in most of the world’s great cities, talking house prices is standard fare at north Tehran dinner parties full of the upwardly striving middle class.

“We borrowed from my family, my wife’s family and the bank when we bought five years ago,” says a middle-class, 30-something engineer, with the near-certain confidence that he got into the market at the right time. “And our house has more than doubled,” he says, before adding with a tinge of worry, “so it was worth it – as long as we don’t get a bubble burst like in America.”

It’s far different from the dark, fearful and partially deserted capital that I remember from 1988 during the so-called “war of the cities” when Iran and Iraq traded salvos of Scud-B missiles. Then the sickly smell of death wafted from buildings destroyed by the incoming missiles and everyone lived in fear of the next random blast.

Nearly two-thirds of Iran’s 80 million people are too young to remember either the Islamic Revolution of 1979 or the devastating war with Saddam Hussein’s Iraq that followed. Yet both continue to shape Iran’s world view, even as it attempts to transform its economy from a massive oil-and-gas exporter into a diversified, 21st-century country.

In less than a decade, Tehran has opened four Metro lines that now whisk more than two million passengers daily on four lines. Two more are under construction. Fares are about 20 cents, less for monthly passes. But, like straphangers everywhere, there are complaints, mostly about crowding, less so about the cars at the front and back of each train reserved for women, although women can also choose to ride elsewhere. And cellphones work even in the tunnels. So, to the irritation of many, near-constant conversations fill the trains.

Clean, fast and frequent, the Metro would be the envy of many mega-cities. But there’s a tussle with the central government over funding, flooding remains a problem in some stations and some want nicer cars. “Last year I was in China, they have French trains so I wonder why we are stuck with Chinese trains,” one well-travelled commuter said.

Even “modesty” has been transformed. Tehran’s streets are a blaze of colour. Many, especially older women, still wear the traditional black hijab. But Tehran’s urban fashionistas wear clingy jackets, lots of make-up and flashy head scarves, pushing the limits with bright prints, gauzy whites and flimsy silks.

Long, elegant and tree-lined Vali-asr is called Tehran’s Yonge Street by those familiar with both cities. Window-shoppers peer at luxury-car showrooms and fancy shops full of imported designer goods. Businessmen moan about the new express bus lanes on the west side, complaining that their well-heeled customers can’t leave their cars (and drivers) idling at the curb any longer while they drop in to look at the latest offering in a fancy lingerie store.

Old Tehran still exists. South of the city’s centre, in the cool shadows of Tehran’s huge bazaar, beneath centuries-old arches, crowds jam the alleys. But there’s also wrenching dislocation. Chinese and Indian imports are bankrupting tiny manufacturing shops and small clothing makers in what is now the world’s 18th-largest economy.

At street-side coffee stands or high-priced restaurants, Iranians gossip about politics and hope, with apparent unanimity, that the looming confrontation with the United States will be defused.

When the talk shifts to domestic politics, the hot topic is whether Mohammed-Baqer Qalibaf, the hard-driving, pragmatic and wily mayor of Tehran, who has built a reputation for getting things done, will take a run at the presidency next year.

He has already clashed with President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the hard-liner who is on the outs with the top religious leadership and also was once mayor of Tehran.

So closely do Tehranis dissect the tea leaves of their murky politics that there’s complex debate over whether Mr. Qalibaf is deliberately allowing huge revolutionary murals that covered some buildings to fade in parts of Tehran where they are unpopular, while repainting them in even more vivid colours in neighbourhoods where revolutionary fervour remains strong.

Mr. Qalibaf, a former Revolutionary Guard commander with a proven combat record and a growing power base in the capital, has been trying to build political bridges abroad – for instance, rubbing shoulders with world leaders at Davos. However, plans to visit the United States for a transit conference were blocked – apparently by Mr. Ahmadinejad.

There’s much grumbling, mainly about prices. International sanctions aren’t blamed, but rather the government’s reduction of subsidies on everything from gasoline (still only 50 cents a litre) to foodstuffs.

In place of across-the-board subsidies, the government created a set of direct payments to the poorest to cushion the impact of price hikes, a scheme that seems to have worked. Even the International Monetary Fund gave it high marks. “My monthly expenses have more than tripled but somehow I can still manage. Everyone manages, it’s the way we are,” a teacher says.

More quietly, many are furious about endemic corruption and – unlike most subjects – are afraid to talk too much about it.

Some things haven’t changed. The huge, walled complex that was once the U.S. embassy in the heart of Tehran remains a ghostly reminder of the takeover in 1979. Once a museum, then an “education centre,” the buildings seem frozen in time, now mostly deserted and guarded by only a few bored basiji, the paramilitary “civilian volunteers” of the revolution who zealously engage in policing moral transgressions and were front-and-centre in cracking down on anti-government protests in 2009.

“No matter how hard they try, America can’t crush us,” boasts a basiji, although he is far too young to remember the 1979 revolution that ousted the pro-Western shah and created an Islamic regime.

But even Iranians who quietly oppose the ruling theocracy (and no one dares publicly oppose it after the crushing of the 2009 demonstrations) believe the country has been badly miscast and is subject to an unwarranted double standard.

“We didn’t invade Afghanistan but we looked after millions of Afghan refugees,” said a musician with no links to the government. “I don’t want Iran to have nuclear weapons but I don’t understand why it’s okay for Israel to have them,” he added.

At the other end of the political spectrum, a woman who came back to Tehran after decades of self-imposed exile in France, remains bitterly disappointed that anti-government dissent has been crushed or scattered.

“This is an old, sophisticated society with a great history and literature,” she said. “Iran isn’t going to disappear, it will be a major player no matter who is in power.”

The Truth is Out There


By M. SABEHEDDIN

Ignorance…brought about anguish and terror. And the anguish grew solid like a fog and no one was able to see.”

– The Gospel of Truth, 17:10, Nag Hammadi Texts

“Humanity is asleep, concerned only with what is useless, living in a wrong world….Do not prattle before the People of the Path, rather consume yourself. You have an inverted knowledge and religion if you are upside down in relation to Reality. Man is wrapping his net around himself. A lion (the man of the Way) bursts his cage asunder.”
The Sufi Master Sanai, teacher of Rumi, in The Walled Garden of Truth (1131 C.E.).

What role does conspiracy and cover-up play in the multifarious facets of life in the closing years of this twentieth century? Are powerful groups manipulating events as part of a long-range strategy to bring about a totally controlled global society? Does recognition of conspiracies lead to paranoia and delusion? Or does it actually explain events and thereby empower people?

It is not the purpose of this short article to examine the range of crimes, cabals and secret plots broadly covered by the word conspiracy. Nor do we intend to prove the existence of some international conspiracy at work in the crisis torn world of the 90s. What we want to touch on is the implications of conspiracy theories for personal transformation. What we want to explore here is a different way of seeing the world.

First let us define the meaning of that seemingly disturbing word: “conspiracy”. Webster’s International dictionary gives, as one connotation, “a combination of men for an evil purpose; a plot”. The Oxford Dictionary of English agrees, defining conspiracy as “a combination of persons for an evil or unlawful purpose; an agreement between two or more to do something criminal, illegal or reprehensible; a plot”.

If, as a significant number of researchers claim, it can be shown that influential – largely hidden – elites have knowingly combined their efforts in a plot(s) to manipulate and control people and events, then on the basis of the standard definition just cited, a conspiracy does indeed exist.

Readers who are accustomed (or is it conditioned?) to automatically regard any mention of conspiracy as irrational paranoia, will find this very subject a ‘problem’.

Jonathon Vankin, the author of two excellent books exploring a host of conspiracy theories, observes that, “The word ‘conspiracy’ may be a ‘problem’ for some, but only because it represents the unknown, mystery, and risk. Those are the things that grip the human mind and bring it to life. These ideas can only be a problem for those who wish to keep our minds under control.”

Last century the British politician, Benjamin Disraeli, a man of wide political experience, declared that “the world is governed by very different personages from what is imagined by those who are not behind the scenes.” This century U.S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt has been quoted as saying: “In politics, nothing happens by accident. If it happens, it was planned that way.”

“Ruling elites will use conspiracy,” states political scientist and activist Dr. Michael Parenti. “They will finance elections, publicity campaigns, publishing houses, wire services, and academic studies. They will use surveillance, mobsters, terrorists, assassins and death squads.”

Conspiracy researchers ‘look behind the dark curtain’ that shrouds history and the sacrosanct assumptions reinforcing contemporary society.

There really are, as investigative author Jim Hougan says, two kinds of history, the safe, sanitized “‘Disney version,’ so widely available as to be unavoidable…and a second one that remains secret, buried, and unnamed.”

This “second” version of history, Jonathon Vankin and John Whalen argue, does indeed have a name: “conspiracy theory.” According to the co-authors of 50 Greatest Conspiracies of All Time the official, safe “Disney” version of history “could just as easily be called the ‘New York Times version’ or the ‘TV news version’ or the ‘college textbook version.’ The main resistance to conspiracy theories comes not from people on the street, but from the media, academia, and government – people who manage the national and global economy of information.”

The structure of the modern world demands mass adherence to faith in the institutions that maintain the existing order and make it run. These institutions are innumerable: government, business, science, education, politics…and their survival is dependent on people’s faith in authority.

“We have to believe the institutions are functioning in our best interests,” wrote Vankin in his 1991 ground-breaking book Conspiracies, Cover-Ups and Crimes. “We have to believe what the people within those institutions assure us to be true.”

This is why ‘conspiracy theories’ are universally anathema to the Establishment. They directly challenge the status quo, undermining the blind faith of the ‘brainwashed’ masses in society’s machiavellian ‘leaders’!

Vankin quotes anthropologist Jules Henry as saying that “our civilization is a tissue of contradictions and lies.” Henry used the term “sham” for the everyday deceptions that reinforce this malignant society. “Sham gives rise to coalitions because usually sham cannot be maintained without confederates.” In other words, to keep the system afloat requires a conspiracy. “In sham,” Henry continues, “the deceiver enters into an inner conspiracy against himself.”

Acknowledging the conspiracies and cover-ups behind history and contemporary events means we can no longer lie to ourselves, like Colin Wilson’s “Outsider” who “cannot live in the comfortable insulated world of the bourgeois, accepting what he sees and touches as reality.”

Modern civilisation is a conspiracy against Reality.

R.D. Laing explains in The Politics of Experience how people are ‘conditioned’ and ‘brainwashed’ by modern society. Beginning with the children, Laing says, “It is imperative to catch them in time. Without the most thorough and rapid brainwashing their dirty minds would see through our dirty tricks. Children are not yet fools, but we shall turn them into imbeciles like ourselves, with high IQs if possible.

“From the moment of birth, when the Stone Age baby confronts the Twentieth century mother, the baby is subjected to these forces of violence, called love, as its mother and father, and their parents and their parents before them, have been. These forces are mainly concerned with destroying most of its potentialities, and on the whole this enterprise is successful. By the time the new human being is fifteen or so, we are left with a being like ourselves, a half-crazed creature more or less adjusted to a mad world. This is normality in our present age.”

In our conditioned environment we accept what we are told, largely without question. Society, or more precisely the ruling elites, define reality.

Central to every conspiracy is the suppression of specific information or the deliberate avoidance of certain key facts. Control of information is a mechanism of social control. If information is used by the ruling elites to programme and mentally enslave people, then information can be used to deprogramme and liberate them. Knowledge is the key to freedom.

According to the Sufis, the potential for clear, direct perception in man in his everyday life is largely frustrated by a distorting complex of sociopsychological conditioning factors. Often these appear in the seemingly innocuous forms of unfounded assumptions and expectations. Consequently man is ready mental putty in the hands of powerful manipulators. Conspiracies are detected only by the exercise of unfettered perception and thinking. Thus, conspirators must propagate a necessary level of confusion in those whom they seek to deceive and control.

The mere realisation of the existence and activities of various ‘conspiracies’ orchestrated by powerful ruling elites, has a largely liberating effect on a thinking individual, disclosing to him as it does the vast magnitude of the lies and deception incorporated in the various layers of official culture. The whole social structure, educational structure, economic and political structures are directly challenged.

Once a person realises that there is a ‘hidden history’ behind our so-called history, they invariably start to want to break away from the futile human pattern of seeing reality as it is not and thereby living a lie. They want to abandon the anaesthetic of ignorance and suppression within which man cocoons himself and to embrace the intensity of reality – as it is.

Conspiracies and cover-ups do exist. However, their underlying root cause is our own irresponsibility, ignorance and inactivity. The world tells us what we want to hear, giving us justifications for different states of irresponsibility. Civilization may well be destroying itself, but individuals don’t have to destroy themselves with it.

The modern world with its phobias, neurosis, contradictions and conflicts, is what we must overcome. We must break our links, sever our ties; plumb the depths of our unconsciousness, and cut the bonds with which we’ve bound ourselves.

Confronted by the intrigue of conspiracy and cover-up, we don’t react to the sham by constructing an equally dogmatic, paranoid worldview. Nor do we become down-cast, depressed or consumed with red-hot anger. There is no point in hiding away or running wildly in the street. Just be AWARE. From the inner certainty, clarity and calm of AWARENESS proceeds right and constructive action. Channel your anger, your fear, your hopes and dreams into TOTAL AWARENESS. By discerning society’s true condition you are free from the bonds of ignorance and no longer a pawn in the game. Awakening from the sleep of conditioned existence we can appreciate the words of the Sufi teacher Al Ghazzali: “The higher one ascends a mountain, the farther one sees.”

Some radical students of the Bible identify the existing social, political and economic order as “Babylon”. A name synonymous with a system of total oppression and exploitation, taken from the Book of Revelation. The government, the bureaucracy, indeed all worldly authorities are mere instruments of Babylon. Babylon, built on falsehood and sustained by ignorance, will one day come crashing down because of fundamental untruths. Awakened to the actual nature of this world, one’s life is that of exile. A stranger in a strange land. Conspiracy and cover-up is what we first encounter when we begin to perceive real life in Babylon.

“It may be that mankind has been invited to participate in a bizarre kind of contest with some undeclared cosmic opponents,” says Brad Steiger, a writer on the paranormal. “Man may have been challenged to play the Reality Game; and if he can once apprehend the true significance of the preposterous clues, if he can but master the proper moves, he may obtain a clearer picture of his true role in the cosmic scheme of things.”

Are Our Taxes Paying For The World’s Fattest Fat Cats?


Are Our Taxes Paying For The World’s Fattest Fat Cats?

Adam Creighton, writing in “The Australian”, reports on the obscene amounts of hard earned taxpayer funds paying for public service bureaucrats. The head of the Department of Climate Change, one of many departments of dubious value, is set to earn at least $700,000 a year by 2014, a 39 per cent pay rise in two years…The secretary of the Prime Minister’s department will get $825,000 a year, more than any other and a 50 per cent pay rise.

These increases are preposterous. For instance, the head of the US Treasury earns less than $200,000 a year and the Bank of England governor is paid about pound stg. 310,000 ($487,000). These are roles where the need to attract talent is surely at least as pressing…

The profusion of senior executive service personnel, the 2790 bureaucrats in Canberra who typically earn between $200,000 and $360,000 a year, is even starker. Their number remained broadly flat between 1984 and 2001, but since then their ranks have almost doubled.Entire suburbs of Sydney and Melbourne are paying tax to support these jobs.”

We decided to do a quick search to compare the most recent salaries from some other politicians and bureaucrats in the US and UK to what is being proposed for our bureaucrats in 2014.

All behind closed doors and condone by both Labor and Liberal when in government, has made Australian Public Service the national leading non productive taxpayer funded drain on public coffers.

Here are the results:

Name Job Salary ($AUD)
Bill Daley White House Chief of Staff USA $167,000
Tim Geithner Secretary of the Treasury USA $186,000
Ben Bernanke Chairman, Federal Reserve Bank USA $194,000
Gen. Martin Dempsey Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff USA $215,000
David Cameron Prime Minister of the United Kingdom UK $224,000
Jeremy Heywood Permenant Secretary, Prime Minister’s Office UK $244,000
Sir John Sawers Chief of the Secret Intelligence Service UK $268,000
Sir Gus O’Donnell Cabinet Secretary UK $376,000
Barack Obama President of the United States USA $390,000
Mervyn King Governor of the Bank of England UK $487,000
Blair Comley Secretary, Department of Climate Change Aust $700,000
Dr Paul Grimes Secretary Department of Sustainability, Environment, Water, Population Aust $700,000
Dr Martin Parkinson Secretary of the Treasury Aust $805,000
Dr Ian Watt Secretary, Department of Prime Minister & Cabinet Aust $825,000

In the real world of Australian politics and government, the bureaucrats are running the country with a “Yes Minister” mindset blanketing elected members of parliament by an out of control public service. Do you think that Tony Abbott will have the guts to take back control of the public service, remove the deadwood and massive over staffing of this taxpayer funded disgrace?

Email your members of parliament to find out what views they have concerning Australian public servant receiving 2.5 time the salary of USA President Obama and Britain’s Prime minister extracted from a taxpaying workforce of only 33% of our tiny 23 million people.

This is an outrageous disgrace!

Extravaganza of Crapoganda


Nima Shirazi – Wide Asleep in America May 13, 2012

Two news reports by major wire services this weekend demonstrate just how pervasive misinformation and propaganda are in the mainstream media when it comes to the Iranian nuclear issue.

The first:

Reuters reported this week that Catherine Ashton, the European Union’s High Representative for Foreign Affairs and Security Policy and chief nuclear negotiator for the P5+1, has high hopes for the new round of talks with Iran resuming May 23rd in Baghdad and will approach the meeting as a “serious set of discussions that can lead to concrete results.”

Sounds positive enough, especially when coupled with the statement Ashton made at the end of last month’s meeting in Istanbul. “We have agreed that the Non-Proliferation Treaty forms a key basis for what must be serious engagement, to ensure all the obligations under the NPT are met by Iran while fully respecting Iran’s right to the peaceful use of nuclear energy.”

However, another comment made by Ashton on Friday is cause for considerable concern. She told reporters in Brussels, “My ambition is that we come away with the beginning of the end of the nuclear weapons programme in Iran. I hope we’ll see the beginnings of success.”

Such a statement is certainly alarming. Despite the hysterical cries of Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and his right-wing acolytes here in the U.S., both Western and Israeli intelligence, along with the IAEA, have consistently confirmed that Iran has no nuclear weapons program.

One would assume that the chief P5+1 negotiator would understand and acknowledge this simple – and vitally important – fact. Perhaps Ashton’s recent private audience with Netanyahu in Jerusalem was more dangerous and detrimental to the negotiations than one would even expect.

(Of course, the sheer absurdity of Ashton’s meeting with the Prime Minister of a state that is not a signatory of the NPT, has an undeclared stockpile of hundreds of nuclear warheads, is a constant violator of international law and perpetrator of war crimes, and which is in consistent breach of countless Security Council resolutions goes without saying. That Netanyahu would have any role whatsoever in these discussions, let alone issuing demands to both the U.S. government and Ashton herself, proves beyond a shadow of a doubt how designed for failure these negotiations were from the start.)

The second:

In one of the most embarrassing examples of published propaganda over the Iranian nuclear program to date, The Associated Press today “reported” that it has obtained an undated “computer-generated drawing” of “an explosives containment chamber of the type needed for nuclear arms-related tests that U.N. inspectors suspect Tehran has conducted” at its Parchin military complex.  The news agency says it was bequeathed this rendering “by an official of a country tracking Iran’s nuclear program who said it proves the structure exists.”

One version of the AP exclusive contains this detail:

That official said the image is based on information from a person who had seen the chamber at the Parchin military site, adding that going into detail would endanger the life of that informant. The official comes from an IAEA member country that is severely critical of Iran’s assertions that its nuclear activities are peaceful and asserts they are a springboard for making atomic arms.

What mysterious country could that possibly be, one wonders?!  The answer is so painfully obvious as to make AP scoopster George Jahn’s attempts at anonymity patently ridiculous and pathetic.  Jahn, unsurprisingly, has a long history of silly reporting on the Iran nuclear issue.

This detonation chamber stuff, by the way, has been debunked for half a year now.

The story also notes that former IAEA official Olli Heinonen, who himself has a long history of pushing dubious information about Iran’s nuclear file, said that the computer graphic provided to the press is “‘very similar’ to a photo he recently saw that he believes to be the pressure chamber the IAEA suspects is at Parchin.”  Heinonen added that “even the colors of the computer-generated drawing matched that of the photo.”

Pretty convincing, huh?  Ok, heres the computer drawing this whole thing is about:

Yes, really.  That’s it.  Really.  No, please stop laughing and believe me.  That’s really the thing they’re talking about.  Yes, seriously.  I mean it.

These are the depths to which propaganda about the Iranian nuclear program have sunk.  It’s not even clever anymore, it’s just stupid.

Just in case anyone is interested, I have successfully uncovered the true identities of the crack Israeli computer graphics team that came up with that drawing:

I want my NPT.

*****

UPDATE:

May 13, 2012 – For those who have forgotten, “b” over at the excellent Moon Of Alabama blog was quick to remind us about the “rather infamous drawings of mobile bio-weapon laboratories Colin Powell presented to the United Nations Security Council as ‘proof’ for weapons of mass destruction in Iraq”:

  1. Yup.  And then the United States invaded Iraq, occupied it for almost a decade, and killed hundreds upon hundreds of thousands of human beings there.  Take another look at these images and think about that.  For a decade.

Henry Ford: Can a Freemason be an “Anti Semite”?


May 8, 2012

fordnew.jpegLeft. Henry Ford, 33 degree Freemason (1863-1947)

Freemasonry is an arm of Illuminati Jewry. Yet Henry Ford’s “The International Jew” (1920) is  perhaps the most informed and scathing condemnation of Illuminati Jewry ever.

The contradiction is explained if we see Ford in the context of Freemasonry’s build-up of Hitler. Freemasonry & Ford also built up Illuminati Jewish Russia for the dialectical clash called World War II.

This is from “Masonic Movers & Shakers of World II”

Anthony Sutton dedicates a chapter to Henry Ford’s Masonic Machinations during WW2.

Not only did Ford have a significant role in the events of WW2, he also served as business representative of the American League to aid and co-operate with Russia in 1918 alongside many other Bolshevik Jewish financiers and Freemasons. At the same time Ford financed Adolf Hitler in the early 1920’s, the formative stage of the Nazi Movement.

In 1928, Ford merged his German assets with the I.G. Farben chemical cartel. Carl Bosch of I.G. Farben became head of Ford A.G. Motor in Germany while Edsel Ford joined the board of American I.G. Farben. Illuminati Jews, the Warburgs were on the boards of I.G. Fareben i the US and Germany. The Oppenheimer bankers were given “honorary Aryan status” by the Nazis.

Hitler had a picture of Ford in his office and decorated the auto mogul in 1938, in honor of Ford’s 75th birthday.

In 1932, Ford built a huge automotive plant in Gorki Russia
which produced over 80,000 vehicles per year.
Anthony Sutton wrote in 1976:


“It is important to note as we develop our story that General Motors, Ford, General Electric, DuPont and the handful of U.S. companies intimately involved with the development of Nazi Germany were — except for the Ford Motor Company — controlled by the Wall Street elite — the J.P. Morgan firm, the Rockefeller Chase Bank and to a lesser extent the Warburg Manhattan bank.” (Wall Street and the Rise of Hitler, p.31.)

The book 10,000 Famous Freemasons reveals that all of these firms were dominated by the Masons.

FORD MOTOR COMPANY AND GENERAL MOTORS

Henry Ford was a Masonic enterprise from the very beginning. Henry Ford was organizer and owner of Ford Motor Company. He was raised  in the Palestine Lodge No 357 Detroit Michigan 1894 and remained a staunch member of this Lodge for 53 years.

“Masonry is the best balancewheel the United States has, for Masons know what to teach their children.” Ford funded Communism and Nazi-ism, he also sponsored the famous Anti-Semitic ‘The International Jew’ and was honorary member Zion Lodge No1.

The Mason-run  General Motors operated and owned ‘Opal’ which was Germany’s second largest tank manufacturer alongside Ford’s German holding.

Charles Erwin Wilson was President of General Motors 1941-53, then US Secretary of Defence. Vice president of General Motors Corp 1929 – 39, director from 1934 and exec vice president from 1939-40. Raised in Fellowship Lodge No 681 Anderson. Received 33rd degree AASR at Boston in 1954.

Also with Ford and General Motors was Ernest R.Breech who became Exec vice president and director of Ford from 1946-1955 and Chairman of the board from that date. Breech was also vice president of General Motors 1933-1942. Raised in Austin Lodge No 850 Chicago in 1924. Soverign Grand Inspector General and 33rd degree AASR (NJ).

Charles S.Mott was Vice President of General Motors 1916-37 and Director since 1913. A member of Central City Scottish Rite Bodies at Syracuse NY and received 33rd degree in 1941.

Without Ford and GM Germany’s war production (especially in the field of tanks) would have been nothing. Sutton writes:

“In brief, there is documentary evidence that Ford Motor Company worked on both sides of World War II. If the Nazi industrialists brought to trial at Nuremburg were guilty of crimes against mankind, then so must be their fellow collaborators in the Ford family, Henry and Edsel Ford. However, the Ford story was concealed by Washington — apparently like almost everything else that could touch upon the name and sustenance of the Wall Street financial elite”. (p.89)

IBM

IBM was another Masonic Enterprise. The notorious Thomas J.Watson was President and Director of IBM 1914-49, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive officer 1949-56 and Chairman of the board after 1956. Watson was raised in 1901 in Valley Lodge No 109, Rochester, New York and received the Grand Lodge 50 year service medal in 1952, and in 1954 was presented the Grand Lodge medal for distinguished achievement.

In “IBM and the Holocaust: The Strategic Alliance Between IBM and the Nazis,” Edwin Black writes that information technology–in the form of IBM’s Hollerith punch-card machines–provided the Nazis with a unique and critical tool in their task of cataloging and dispatching their millions of victims.

As the book’s title suggests, Black maintains that IBM had a strategic alliance with the Third Reich in which it licensed and custom-designed its products for use in the machinery of the Holocaust.

IBM has responded to questions about its relationship with the Nazis largely by characterizing the information as old news.


DOW CHEMICAL

Dow Chemical were part of the IG Farben umbrella corporation and were suppliers of large stocks of Magnesium for incendary bombs and other chemicals for the production of explosives.

Williard H. Dow
President of Dow Chemical Co from 1930, chairman of the board 1941-47. Was also a director of several other Dow corporations. Mason 32nd degree AASR and Shriner.

Leland I. Doan
President of Dow Chemical from 1949, Vice President from 1938-49. Mason 32nd degree AASR at Alexandria.

GENERAL ELECTRIC

General Electric was JP Morgan’s enterprise with extensive involvement in funding pre and post-revolutionary Russia. They also heavily funded the Nazis.

Charles Edward Wilson was President of General Electric Co 1940-42 and 1944-50, Director of office of Defense mobilization 1950-52. Vice president of GE 1930-37, Exec vice president 1937-39 and then president. Life member of Mariners Lodge No 67 New York City, in 1948 received Achievement Award of the Grand Lodge of New York.

Walter RG Baker, a veteran of General Electric since 1916, rose to directorship of many banks and corporations including General Electric (international); GE Supply Corp and GE Credit Corp. Mason.

owendyoung.gifOwen D Young, left – Lawyer, financier, corporation officer and author of ‘Young Plan’ for war reparations after WW1. Counsel and Vice President of General Electric 1913-22. Chairman of the Board of GE 1922-39. Deputy Chairman of Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Chairman Radio Corporation of America. Chairman Advisory Council National Broadcasting Co. Director American and Foreign Power Co, NY Life Insurance Co, American Broadcasting Co. Also Chairman Federal Reserve Bank of New York. Also served on many national and international trade and economic committees. Heavily involved with funding Nazis and Soviets through General Electric. Raised in Evergreen Lodge No363, and served on NY Committee of Grand Lodge Awards of the Grand Lodge of New York.

According to Hitler’s financial genie, Hjalmar Horace Greeley Schacht, and Nazi industrialist Fritz Thyssen, it was the 1928 Young Plan (the successor to the Dawes Plan), formulated by Morgan agent Owen D. Young, that brought Hitler to power in 1933.

Fritz Thyssen claims that, “I turned to the National Socialist Party only after I became convinced that the fight against the Young Plan was unavoidable if complete collapse of Germany was to be prevented.”

The difference between the Young Plan and the Dawes Plan was that, while the Young Plan required payments in goods produced in Germany financed by foreign loans, the Young Plan required monetary payments and “In my judgment [wrote Thyssen] the financial debt thus created was bound to disrupt the entire economy of the Reich.”

The Young Plan was a device to occupy Germany with American capital and pledge German real assets for a gigantic mortgage held in the United States.The ulterior motive was to increase unemployment and fuel the rise of Hitler to power.

B.I.S. — THE APEX OF CONTROL

This interplay of ideas and cooperation between Hjalmar Sehacht in Germany and, through Owen Young, the J.P. Morgan interests in New York, was only one facet of a vast and ambitious system of cooperation and international alliance for world control. As described by Carroll Quigley, this system was

“… nothing less than to create a world system of financial control, in private hands, able to dominate the political system of each country and the economy of the world as a whole.”

NUREMBURG

The Nuremburg Trials were a Freemasons free-for-all, a whitewash designed to cover their own tracks, and distract attention from more horrific events in Masonic Soviet Russia.

Movers and Shakers of Nuremberg included:

Walter Beals
Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of Washington 1933-34, 1945-46 and presiding judge for the War Crimes Tribunal in Nuremberg 1946-48. Mason and 32nd degree AASR.

CONCLUSION


  The evidence suggests that you cannot reach the top in business or government if you are not a Freemason. This form of secret discrimination is a fundamental betrayal of the social contract. Why would anyone feel they owe anything to society? 

The record also suggests that Freemasonry foments war to concentrate wealth and power in its hands and to degrade and demoralize humanity in advance of the New World Order.

Christianity around the World Is under Assault, but not from Muslims


The neo-conservative cabal entwined in Western governments and media is fond of stating that «Judeo-Christianity,» itself a loaded term, is under assault from «Islamo-fascists» around the world. The record, however, is clear.

From Moscow to Cairo and Damascus to east Jerusalem, Christianity is under assault, not from main stream Islam but from a nexus of Jewish and «Christian» Zionists allied with the disruptive forces of non-governmental organizations financed by global troublemaker George Soros, alias Gyorgy Schwartz.

In Moscow, a feminist rock band called «Pussy Riot» has used trademark Soros disruption tactics against the Russian Orthodox Church. Prior to the recent Russian presidential election, Pussy Rioters staged a sacrilegious, intolerant, and insensitive «concert» during worship services at the Cathedral of Christ the Savior in Moscow. After they were imprisoned for hooliganism, the Pussy Riot punkers instantly received support from all the usual suspects that kow-tow to the anti-Gentile line of the Zionists and their deep-pocketed Soros allies: The Washington Post, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, Bloomberg News, and Forbes magazine. 

Recently, tens of thousands of Orthodox believers took part in a vigil outside Christ the Savior in support of the Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill, who, himself came under fire from the propagandists of the West and global Zionism for wearing an expensive wristwatch, a gift from his parishioners.

Almost half of the Russian public surveyed in a poll conducted by the Levada Center agreed that the Pussy Rioters deserve a two- to seven-year sentence for their antics. However, the Soros and neo-conservative/neo-liberal NGOs and media outlets have demanded the immediate release of the politically-active trollops.

Last year, a group of women protesters from Ukraine, who call themselves FEMEN and are linked to Soros disruption operations, staged a topless protest inside the Vatican. Although the Catholic Church, as an institution, has much to answer for, the disrespect shown by the action to devout Catholics is in keeping with Soros’s and his supporters’ disrespect for the Christian faith. 

Attacks on Christianity are also the norm in illegally Israeli-occupied east Jerusalem and the West Bank. Attempts by some Western media to report on Israel’s gulags in the occupied territories comes at a tremendous price, something that was witnessed by the veteran White House correspondent for Hearst Newspapers, Helen Thomas, after she criticized Israel’s occupation of Palestine to an undercover rabbi who «ambushed» her with a hidden camera on the grounds of the White House. Thomas was pilloried and fired by Hearst after the Zionist/neo-conservative cabal ganged up on the 91-year old Thomas.

In a recent CBS “60 Minutes” piece on Israel’s repression of Arab Christians, Israeli ambassador to the United States Michael Oren told one whopper of a lie but received a free pass on it from the generally Israel-subservient media. Oren, in his answer to a question posed by veteran CBS newsman Bob Simon about Oren having attempted to “spike” a report on the plight of Christians in occupied Israeli territory by interceding with CBS 60 Minutes executive producer Jeff Fager before the segment aired, replied, “There is always a first time.”

Oren knows full-well that it was not the first time that Israel’s international network of hasbara propagandists and Zionist sayanim well-entrenched in media outlets has attempted to kill a story unfavorable to Israel. Oren, alias Michael Bornstein, gave up his American citizenship when he agreed to become Binyamin Netanyahu’s ambassador in Washington. Oren, a life-long Zionist, laughably claims he emigrated to Israel from his native West Orange, New Jersey to escape what he described as “anti-Semitism” rampant among the town’s largely Catholic residents. Oren is a veteran of the Israel Defense Force and served in Lebanon during that nation’s bloody civil war, a war in which Israel took the side of a right-wing Christian President.

In the 60 Minutes piece, the Christians of the Holy Land were referred to as the “invisible people,” with many trying to flee the onslaught of steady and growing Jewish encroachment on traditionally Arab and Christian lands. The broadcast featured a Palestinian Christian family completely surrounded on all four sides by Israel’s separation wall on te West Bank.

Oren and his fellow Jewish Zionists, aided and abetted by so-called “Christian Zionists” like John Hagee and members of groups like Christians United for Israel, which are financed by Israeli interests, do not want Americans to see Christians being treated as second-class citizens in an apartheid state. Former President Jimmy Carter knows the hard way what happens when someone dares speak the truth about Israel’s racist policies, which affect Palestinian Christians and Muslims, alike.

True to form, the anti-Gentile Oren called the 60 Minutes report “outrageous” and “incomprehensible.” Simon said, “I never gotten a reaction before from a story that hasn’t been broadcast yet.”

After the suspicious activities of Israeli “art students” and others suspicious Israelis linked to Israeli intelligence prior to the 9/11 attacks were reported by Fox News, the Associated Press, and others, Israel’s public relations shill in Washington, Mark Regev, dismissed the stories as an “urban myth.” Regev is now the public relations spokesman for Netanyahu’s government. Fox pulled down its four-part series from its website amid a flurry of Israeli and domestic U.S. Jewish criticism. A veteran AP reporter recounted the threatening phone calls his editor received from a Boston-based Israeli-funded media “watch dog” group, CAMERA or the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America.

Israel supporters also rallied against CBS, claiming that Christians in Israel are the only Christian community in the Middle East protected from “Islamist terrorists.” That must come as news to Maronites and other Christians in Syria and Copts in Egypt who have been beset by Wahhabist Salafist terrorists supported by Israel’s Lobby in North America and Europe. It is well-known that Syria’s Christians have been protected by Bashar al Assad’s government while Syrian Islamist rebels have received support from Israel and their neo-conservative supporters abroad who nest in such outfits as the American Enterprise Institute and the Hudson Institute in Washington, DC. Attacks on Copts in Egypt, including the bombing of a church in Alexandria, have been determined by Egyptian authorities to have been signature Israeli-style “false flag” attempts to garner support for Egyptian dictator Hosni Mubarak during his final days in power. The Egyptian Bar Association said Israel was behind the 2011 New Year’s bombing of Saints Church in Alexandria that killed 22 parishioners who were celebrating midnight mass. The world media dutifully reported the attack as the work of Islamist terrorists.

A document prepared by an inter-faith group of Catholics, Protestants, and Orthodox called Kairos Palestine and issued in 2009, calls Israel’s occupation of the West Bank and east Jerusalem “clear apartheid,” echoing President Carter’s similar charge. Oren and his Zionist colleagues merely dismissed the document and its authors — patriarchs, archbishops, and bishops of the Greek Orthodox, Roman Catholic, Armenian Orthodox, Coptic, Syrian Orthodox, Maronite, Ethiopian, Greek Catholic, Syrian Catholic, Lutheran, Anglican, and Syrian Catholic churches — as being the work of “anti-Semites.”

Similarly, anti-Gentile invectives have been hurled by Israeli Jewish leaders and Jewish leaders abroad at Christian church leaders who back the Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) program against Israel for its draconian apartheid policies in the Occupied Territories. Particular anti-Gentile abuse has been heaped on leaders of the Church of England; the Church of Scotland; five large American denominations – the Episcopalians, Methodists, Presbyterian, Lutheran, and United Church of Christ; the National Council of Churches of Australia; the Quakers; the Lutheran Church of Sweden; the United Reformed Church of England, Scotland, and Wales; the Protestant Church of the Netherlands; the Church of Norway; the South African Council of Churches; the British Methodist Church; the United Church of Canada; and the World Council of Churches. Personal insults from the hasbara propaganda machine have been thrown at retired South African Anglican Archbishop Desmond Tutu; retired Swedish Lutheran Archbishop K. G. Hammar; Anglican Archbishop of Canterbury Rowan Williams; and President Carter, a Baptist. Some 140 leading Jewish Israelis have also endorsed the BDS policies of the Christian churches, which puts a significant dent in the argument that the movement has «anti-Semitic» intentions.

And to further inflame inter-religious tensions around the world, the Israeli Mossad’s fingerprints can be seen on false flag violence that seeks to inflame Buddhist-Muslim tensions in Thailand and Myanmar; Muslim-Christian tensions in Indonesia, Turkey, the Philippines, Sudan, and Nigeria; Sunni-Shi’a tensions in Iraq, Yemen, and Syria; and Hindu-Muslim tensions in India.

This past Good Friday, as with all Good Fridays since the papacy of Pope John Paul II, saw Franciscan brothers the world over collect donations in Catholic churches around the world for the Holy Land’s besieged Christians and their churches. It was not the actions of Muslims that prompted the appeal for help but the actions of the Jewish state of Israel. That fact was made very clear in the international appeal of the Franciscan order, named for St. Francis of Assisi, who was a sole voice of reason during the infamous Crusades and who earned the respect of the Muslim leader Saladin and his nephew, the Sultan of Egypt Malek al Kamil.

The world is ready for religious leaders to emulate the peace-making of St. Francis, Saladin, and Sultan Malek and not the extremism of Zionists, Christian Zionists, and the catalysts for violence and intolerance endemic in the Soros movement and its agents provocateurs.
