Rohrabacher bill would end aid to Pakistan

NOVANEWS

 

Rep. Dana Rohrabacher, R-Costa Mesa, is part of the growing fray over U.S. aid to Pakistan, and has introduced a bill that would halt the flow of that money.

The raid that resulted in Osama bin Laden‘s killing in Pakistan “made it clear that Pakistan’s leadership concealed, protected and enabled the al Qaeda leader for many years,” according to a statement from Rohrabacher’s office.

“We can no longer afford this foolishness,” Rohrabacher said. “The time has come for us to stop subsidizing those who actively oppose us. Pakistan has shown itself not to be America’s ally.”
Pakistan has received over $18 billion in U.S. aid since 2001, according to Rohrabacher, who introduced his bill Thursday.

Senate Intelligence Committee Chairwoman Dianne Feinstein, a California Democrat, expressed similar sentiments Monday in questioning continued aide to the country.

“Either we’re going to be allies in fighting terror, or the relationship makes less and less sense to me,” Feinstein told reporters. “Everyone knew that bin Laden was the head of al Qaeda. Everybody knew that he was the leader of the attack on New York City. And to enable him to live in Pakistan in a military community for six years, I just don’t believe it was done without some form of complicity.”

According to a Politico story, “Feinstein broke with the top two members of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee — Democrat John Kerry of Massachusetts and Republican Dick Lugar of Indiana — who have defended American aid to country where the world’s most-wanted terrorist was hiding out for six years.”

Rubio urges more U.S. action against Syria

NOVANEWS

 

Florida Sen. Marco Rubio joins a bipartisan group of senators condemning the violence in Syria and asking the White House to get tougher on its government.

WASHINGTON — Florida Sen. Marco Rubio Wednesday called for the Obama administration to ratchet up the pressure on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad, whose regime has attacked anti-government protestors.

The freshman senator joined fellow Sens. Joe Lieberman, I-Conn., John McCain, R-Ariz., and Ben Cardin, D-Maryland, at a Capitol Hill press conference, to unveil a resolution that urges President Obama to expand sanctions against the Syrian government and speak out on the situation “directly, and personally.”

“We ask you to lead us now in making the cause of the Syrian people America’s cause as well,” Rubio, a member of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, said in remarks directed at Obama. “In our words and actions, it should be clear that America is on the side of the Syrian people and that we support their right to peacefully pursue a better future for their country. We must also send an important message to the Syrian regime that we condemn its crimes and that Bashar al Assad should no longer be treated as the legitimate ruler.”

The press conference marks the Miami Republican’s first major appearance on the foreign policy stage and he bookended it with appearances on CBS and CNN.

“Any time a government has to use government forces and army forces to kill unarmed citizens in order to hold onto power, that makes them illegitimate and that’s what’s happening in Syria,” he said on CBS. “I hope the United States will be a clear voice saying that.”

The resolution declares that al-Assad’s government – “through its campaign of violence and gross human rights abuses, has lost its legitimacy” – an assertion the White House has not made, as it has with Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi.

“I know that there are some who had hoped when these protests first broke out that Bashar al- Assad would pursue the path of reform rather than the path of violence and brutality,” Lieberman said. “But that’s clearly not been his choice… He is not a reformer. He is a thug and a murderer, a totalitarian leader who is pursuing the Qaddafi model, and hopes to get away with it.”

McCain said that three officials with the Syrian regime face sanctions, “but not the guy that’s giving the orders. It’s time we indicted the guy that’s giving the orders. And it’s time for the president of the United States to speak up forcefully and frequently.”

McCain said the senators aren’t pushing for air strikes like those launched in Libya – noting the uprisings are occuring “all over Syria.

“As a matter of practicality it’s almost impossible to intervene in any way but the ways we are advocating,” McCain said.

State Department spokesman Mark Toner called the treatment of protestors “barbaric measures” and suggested “there’s a window here for the Syrian government to address those concerns and that’s closing rapidly.”

White House spokesman Jay Carney said the White House has increased pressure against Syria and is working with its allies “to urge the government of Syria to cease the violence, to engage in political dialogue.”

He said the situations in Libya and Syria were unique, but that “it has been made abundantly clear to the Syrian government that its security crackdown will not restore stability and will not stop the demands for change in Syria.

“As it is in all these countries, it’s up to the people of the region to decide who its leader should be,” Carney said. “But we believe that the government ought to listen to its people, refrain from violence, and engage in political dialogue.

Musharraf–U.S. will lose if it alienates Pakistan

NOVANEWS

Former Pakistani president Pervez Musharraf warned in an interview on Wednesday that the United States will be “a loser” if it alienates Pakistan in the war against al-Qaida and Islamic militants.

Musharraf, speaking about the U.S. raid in Pakistan which eliminated Osama bin Laden, also told ABC News there was no deal between his government and Washington almost a decade ago allowing U.S. forces to conduct a unilateral raid in Pakistani territory, as reported by the British newspaper The Guardian.

“Never! And this is the assertion being cast by the Guardian and I rejected that. I condemn such an insinuation,” Musharraf said. “There was no such deal.”

Musharraf acknowledged however that Pakistani intelligence might have helped bin Laden remain undetected for years at his compound in the garrison town of Abbottabad, but said this it would have been a “rogue element” in the ranks.

It was more likely that this was a big “blunder” by Pakistan in failing to detect the al-Qaida leader for years, he said.

Pakistan has come under fire for failing to track down the world’s most wanted man, who was shot dead in a U.S. commandos raid on May 2 in a heavily fortified compound not far from Islamabad.

But Musharraf, who was president until 2008 after seizing power in a coup in 1999, said the action was a violation of Pakistan’s sovereignty and a sign of mistrust between the two partners.

“Certainly it was a violation of our sovereignty,” he said, adding he supported Islamabad’s decision not to allow U.S. officials back into the compound.

“That was a good decision. I don’t think we can accept, no government can accept a violation of their sovereignty.”

Musharraf said Pakistan had co-operated with the U.S. in many other cases and said the unilateral U.S. action showed a lack of trust.

“What kind of friend is that, that you haven’t taken us into confidence?” he said.

“In my time, we apprehended three dozen, dozens of al-Qaida people . . . we co-operated with each other, we spotted the target, we identified it.

“You can’t clap with one hand. If you don’t trust Pakistan, how can Pakistan trust you?”

Pakistan suffered “all the consequences of mayhem and tribal warfare in Afghanistan,” after joining Washington in the battle against al-Qaida and the Taliban, and that trust and co-operation are needed, he said.

“The requirement is absolutely Pakistan and U.S. relations must be good . . . But if there is mistrust and we are pulling in different directions, trust me, we are losing the battle against terror.

“To (the) extent that you want to alienate Pakistan, you will be a loser. And Pakistan will also be a loser, there’s no doubt. The world will lose.”

Musharraf, a former Pakistani military commando and army chief, resigned as president under pressure in 2008. He now lives in self-imposed exile in London, but is wanted over the 2007 murder of ex-premier Benazir Bhutto, accused of failing to provide her with enough security.

Really Dumb Lying — Legacy of Palin the Prevaricator

NOVANEWS

 

By Robert S. Becker

Like any huckster selling remedies and wisdom she doesn’t possess, Sarah Palin is hardly the first or worst (or is it best?) of our venomous media liars. The Palin didn’t invent rightwing chicanery, but she’s honed her own incendiary opportunism. Death panels, paling around with terrorists, Birtherism worth investigating, and let’s now all praise W. for bagging bin Laden. Feh!

The legacy of Palinesque lying, whether congenital, pathological or tactical, carries one obvious, lasting, real-world impact — more Christine O’Donnell-Sharon Angle kin. True, when competing with master dissemblers Limbaugh and Beck, the Palin is late to the Lying for Dollars Multi-Millionaires’ Club. But those true fringe scammers spent decades honing their “black hole” style of entertainment, mastering the art of gobbling up reason and truth like deep space spirals munching solar systems.

Considering how little of political substance she learned in three years, the Palin remains the luckiest, flakiest vaudevillian around, her wacky sneers and smirks the perfect cover up. Yet, she’s not lied us into a trillion dollar war — though “Drill, baby, drill” turns “Kill, baby, Kill” when God identifies enemies “too big for their britches.” Nor has Palin enacted a media Black List akin to Joe McCarthy forbears, nor plunged the nation into depression. Who knows what fiascos Alaska avoided because she quit being governor to attain her celebrity destiny, “famous for being famous”?

Her mounting voter negatives aside, the Palin wins one dubious modern competition — the most successful, self-promoter to make a brand (indeed industry) of misrepresentation and innuendo, profiting handsomely from books, TV shows, endorsements and speeches. A babbling bobblehead. Though less dangerous to the world than discredited liars like W. or Cheney, the Palin train wreck persists, suckering the gullible and the witless media that glamorizes (then feasts on) flakey fakes.

Palin’s Spawn: Bachmann, The Donald

Without the Palin refudiations, would we suffer our national epidemic of outlandish mendacity, laughable if not so corrosive? Doesn’t the Palin inspire the breathtaking assaults on common sense known as Michelle Bachmann? Would the Donald’s notoriety rise above village crazies, mouthing any nonsense passing through his sieve-like head? Nope, thanks, Sarah.

As demented McCarthy long ago seeded the hateful fringe now hijacking the GOP, the spawn of the Palin will eclipse her own historical position in footnotes — as failed V.P. candidate, failed governor, and failed, unelectable, politician, indeed a national joke. Hey, it’s a career, and in politics ripples can expand expectedly, for good and ill. Condemned by a 1954 Senate censure, the ostracized, disgraced McCarthy turned to drink and died at 48 only three years later. Can bad things still happen to bad people?

Before Palin, power-mad schemers lied to pitch otherwise unsellable, indigestible crimes — hawking Vietnam or Iraq wars with smoke and mirrors. Official falsifications once had real-world context and point, however dastardly; thus, Colin Powell’s career was sacrificed to get U.N. okay on Iraq. Before the Palin, important liars fooled all of the people some of the time. The Palin lies with abandon, simply for publicity that week, not whether she impacts a real political decision; careening mindlessly from the mundane to the serious, one wonders if she ever cares whom she hoodwinks.

Sound Bite Gamesmanship

For me, the Palin transforms public lying, producing a never-ending patter of media gamesmanship — or ridicule disguised as entertainment. No pretense to accuracy, no evidence to impede thought, pure sound bites laced with prejudice, jingoism, and racial fear-mongering. Who more than Palin turns politics into TV’s Jeopardy, though she acts like wrong answers count the same as right ones. Will our grandchildren not scoff at delusional Creationism? Or denial of man-made climate change?

No doubt there’s some magical mystery tour at play, for the Palin holds her own. Her splashy performance makes Mitt Romney looks like Mayberry’s Barney Fife. Ditto, Tim Pawlenty, whose modest competence disappears inside itself. And then there’s Newt Gingrich, who lies worse than the Palin but lacking her smiling sneer, shrinks to irrelevance.

Perhaps the Palin’s lying doesn’t offend as it should because it’s tweeted, not spoken outloud. She is so verbally-challenged off the cuff, some award sympathy and that deflects her dishonesty. Her pathology invokes pathos in the uninformed and comic snarkiness amuses the pathetic faithful. Millions apparently respond to the petty, high school put down artist, the snickering cheerleader with inside, coded jokes.

Obama or Palin? What’s Plan B?

In only three years, the Palin has legitimized mendacity, shocking the left by proving how many wingbats agree that willful contempt of the truth is just dandy. But this is one empress without clothes — the bigmouth mudslinger who has no real solutions to any problem. It’s quite amazing how her tiresome regiment still resists all content, even a political hobbyhorse. Her fare is fringe comfort food that distills mythic Reagan smugness with knee-jerk Bushism seasoned by Tea Party goofiness. Talk about no there there.

Curiously, Obama also gets tagged as an empty suit because his unfeeling “pragmatism” squashed what sounded great as campaign rhetoric. Yet, he’s opposite to the Palin — a conventional, wonkish politician stocked with outdated, Democratic messaging and seeming agendas to fix things. Obama brims over with facts and proposals, albeit half-baked and diluted, but he does converse in ideas, honors expertise, and respects learning and science. But unlike his unprincipled, “everything is negotiable” secularism, the Palin denies compromise, knowledge or “elitist” competence. Her credo voices the faithful’s fixation on reductive, moral absolutism: opponents are not just wrong but wicked sinners full of bad faith.

Unfortunately, in turning rightward, Obama relinquished the higher calling that could challenge the transcendent, if rapturous vision the Palin still effectively pitches. Craven or not, she’s all about childlike beliefs, pushing Biblical fables as literally true, the voice of the monumentally average (and below). Ever the true believer than politician, she hawks her backward evangelicalism with a most unrogue-like conventionality. I fear America is coming down to this choice — between one brand of wary, risk-averse calculation, with its own insular arrogance, vs. a primitive, smug, moralistic certitude about everything. Whether pitched to pragmatism or dogmatism, neither paradigm addresses growing, real-world suffering or challenges in the terra firma where the majority lives. Which leads to either greater tragedy or opportunity.

John Demjanjuk convicted of aiding murder of 27,900 Jews in Holocaust

NOVANEWS

 

John Demjanjuk, Sobibor Nazi - AFP - 12.5.11

German court finds 91-year-old suspected Nazi guilty of acting as accessory to mass murder as a guard at Sobibor camp during World War Two, but releases him from his 5-year-sentence due to his advanced age.

Reuters

A German court on Thursday found retired Ohio autoworker John Demjanjuk guilty of aiding the murder of 27,900 Jews at the Nazi death camp Sobibor.

The Munich court found the 91-year-old guilty of being an accessory to mass murder as a guard at Sobibor camp in Poland during World War Two, and sentenced him to five years in jail.

However later Thursday, the court decided to release Demjanjuk from jail because of his advanced age.

“The accused is to be released,” Judge Ralph Alt told the Munich court on Thursday after handing down a guilty verdict and sentencing the Ukraine-born Demjanjuk to five years in jail.

Demjanjuk had been exonerated in a separate Holocaust trial two decades ago in Israel, where he was initially sentenced to death for being the notorious “Ivan the Terrible” camp guard at Treblinka in Poland. The ruling was overturned by Israel’s supreme court after new evidence exonerated him.

Ulrich Busch (L) lawyer of accused Nazi death camp guard John Demjanjuk, stands next to him in a courtroom in Munich May 12, 2011. Reuters1/10Holocaust survivors welcomed the guilty verdict, as did the Nazi-hunting Simon Wiesenthal Center, where Rabbi Marvin Hier said: “John Demjanjuk’s Nazi past finally caught up with him.”

“Humanity owed this to the memory of the tortured and the dead,” Elan Steinberg of the American Gathering of Holocaust Survivors and their Descendants said, adding his “cynical manipulation of the legal system has at last been ended”.

Ukraine-born Demjanjuk, who was once top of the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s list of most wanted Nazi war criminals, said he was drafted into the Soviet army in 1941 then taken prisoner of war by the Germans.

Demjanjuk attended the 18-month court proceedings in Munich – birthplace of Adolf Hitler’s Nazi movement — in a wheelchair and sometimes lying down, with his family trying to argue that he was too frail to stand trial.

His son, John Demjanjuk Jr., said in an e-mail ahead of the verdict that his father was a victim of the Nazis and of post-war Germany.

“While those who refuse to accept that reality may take satisfaction from this event, nothing the Munich court can do will atone for the suffering Germany has perpetrated upon him to this day,” he said.

Prosecutors had faced several hurdles in proving Demjanjuk’s guilt, with no surviving witnesses to his crimes and heavy reliance on wartime documents, namely a Nazi ID card that defense attorneys said was a fake made by the Soviets.

Guards at Nazi death camps like Sobibor were essential to the mass killing of Jews because extermination was the focus of such camps, prosecutors said. Some 250,000 Jews were killed at Sobibor, according to the Wiesenthal Center.

Defense attorney Ulrich Busch told the Munich court on Wednesday that even if Demjanjuk did become a prison guard, he did so only because as a prisoner of war he would have either been shot by the Nazis or died of starvation.

Demjanjuk emigrated to the United States in the early 1950s and became a naturalized citizen in 1958, working as an engine mechanic in Ohio.

Wife of U.S. serviceman charged with helping husband video tape sex acts with a 5-year-old girl

NOVANEWS

 

Ed note–The world-wide trafficking in sex-videos involving children is dominated by the Zionist mafia and although it is not specifically mentioned in this piece, we can at least partly assume that the perps were hoping to sell this video to those who had the network to sell it en masse. A few years ago there was an international ring of Zionist gangsters who were selling videos of captured children not only being raped on film, but killed as well. They were selling these videos for as much as $10,000.00 to mostly-Zionist customers over the internet. When an Italian television station did a news broadcast detailing this event, noting that it was a for-the-most-part “Zionist” circumstance,  the producer of the program was fired by his Zionist boss. We can just imagine the ensuing noise if there were any Muslims involved in this diabolical business.

 

ONSLOW COUNTY-NC — An Onslow County woman was arrested Wednesday night for sex crimes she helped her husband commit on a 5-year-old.

“You can’t sugar-coat what’s happened here,” said Sheriff Ed Brown.

Laura Elizabeth Anderson, 23, was incarcerated in the Onslow County Jail. Her bond was set at $100,000. She is charged with first-degree sexual offense, indecent liberties, and crime against nature.

The Onslow County Sheriff’s Office assisted NCIS in executing a search warrant that led to her arrest.

“The wife (Laura Elizabeth Anderson) was on base,” said Sheriff Brown, “had actually been picked up at the main gate and carried to the residence for the purpose of serving the warrant, not only on the residence, but also on the computers they had in the residence.

“An NCIS agent had received information that Anderson and her husband were involved in recording video of sex acts they jointly participated in on a 5-year-old.

According to an NCIS report, they would give sleeping pills to the child and perform the sex acts while she was unconscious.

“They do have evidence sufficient to support what you’ve been told at this time,” said Brown.

Anderson’s husband is a sailor assigned to Camp Lejeune Naval Hospital.

He and another sailor are persons of interest in this case. Their names have not been officially released yet.

The Sheriff doesn’t know the child’s condition.

“You can ponder that in your mind, the damage that has been done to that child at 5 years of age, and the destruction of her future life that has been done at that time,” he said.

NCIS is also investigating whether there may be additional victims.

Osama bin Laden Transfigured

NOVANEWS

 

by Philip Giraldi,

 

The execution-style slaying of Osama bin Laden has been touted as a great success for United States intelligence operatives and also for the special operations soldiers, sailors, and airmen who executed the plan. But it also leaves one feeling a bit uneasy about where this is all going now that the world’s most wanted fugitive is dead. A retrospective look at the fifteen year manhunt mounted by the US government estimates that it cost something like $3 trillion to kill him. An effort is being made to confirm that bin Laden was still a very dangerous man, plotting with his associates and “coming up with ideas” about attacking transportation hubs in the US, but there is little to suggest that the aging terrorist was well positioned to mount any effective operations against anyone. As he relied on couriers to communicate his wishes he was not even able to send instructions or advice to his remaining associates in under a week, hardly qualifying him as a hands-on master of terror.

Most Americans have welcomed the death of bin Laden because the reality of his crimes against the American people would appear to be undeniable. That said, there has also been a certain level of unease becoming more evident in discussions of the assassination because an unarmed bin Laden was killed without any due process, a pattern of behavior that has been characteristic of both the George W. Bush and Barack Obama administrations. The White House clearly did not want to permit bin Laden to appear in a show trial, in which he would inevitably be the star and would have been able to make a powerful case against US policy.

Many Americans also have begun to question the White House narrative about how and why bin Laden was killed, particularly as the story has changed a number of times. Indeed, the first accounts that he was resisting with an AK-47 in hand have now somewhat mellowed into a version that has him hiding in a bedroom with his son and his wife, where he and they were shot dead. As the president put it in his official statement on the end of the terrorist leader, “After a firefight, they killed Osama bin Laden.” The word “after” and its placement is significant as it implies that there was some shooting followed by a targeted assassination. The subsequent rapid disposal of the body at sea also will lead to more questions than answers and is already beginning to do so.

But what is particularly disquieting about the bin Laden story is how it is being used by some media commentators and politicians to support the reactionary war on terror policies of both George W. Bush and Barack Obama. In the press and on Capitol Hill there have been suggestions that the successful tracking of bin Laden came about because of torture, that the key information that led to his hideout in Pakistan was developed in a CIA secret prison. Demagogic politicians like congressman Peter King are extolling the virtues of enhanced interrogation and calling for more of it.

The fact is, however, that there is no evidence that the significant information that eventually led to bin Laden’s hideaway came through the harsh treatment of anyone. Senator Joe Lieberman and others who have become cheerleaders for the targeted killing are praising the war against terror and are calling on the administration to expand it to include more operations by delta soldiers and navy seals, but they have long favored a more aggressive policy overseas just about everywhere. They may be envisioning and hoping for more assassination operations to kill undesirable leaders in countries that are currently in turmoil, like Yemen and Syria. If that is so, they are opening a door that should remain closed for many good reasons including one in particular: if we start assassinating them they will start assassinating us.

But amidst the euphoria over the death of America’s great enemy, many Americans have, perhaps surprisingly to some, not embraced the more war all the time agenda and instead are seeing the death of bin Laden as an opportunity to restore some measure of normality and sanity to our fractured foreign and defense policies. President Obama has scored a great success in the eyes of most Americans. He has killed the terrorist leader who has been the target of the worldwide thrashing about that US government forces have engaged in for the past ten years. With bin Laden gone, it is time to cash in the political capital and bring about some real change. This should be a liberating moment, a moment of transfiguration, not a recipe for more of the same.

Minus the always overinflated threat posed by bin Laden, there is a good opportunity to end the phony war on terror started by Bush and continued as overseas contingency operations by his successor. The timing is perfect if only the President of the United States has the courage to seize it because the raid casts light on several false assumptions being made by the administration to support continued conflict in Asia. First is the true nature of the relationship with Pakistan, which the White House has seen as an essential ally, an absolute sine qua non for success in Afghanistan. The raid on Abbottabad did not only kill a terrorist and his associates, it revealed the true depth of the folly that the United States is engaged in in south and central Asia vis-à-vis its would-be friends in Islamabad.

Pakistan recognizes that the United States will not remain in Afghanistan forever and is acting in support of its own interests, which means establishing working relationships with every side to every dispute in central Asia. The full story of Islamabad’s concealment of bin Laden may never come out, but no one in the intelligence community who knows anything about Pakistan believes that he was not being protected by someone at some level in the country’s government. If elements in the Pakistani government have been capable of hiding for nearly ten years the man being desperately sought by the US, they are capable of anything in support of their own interests, which should surprise no one.

Pakistan’s understandable failure to fully comply with Washington’s “you are either with us or against us” challenges the other major assumption, that the Taliban can be defeated militarily leading to some sort of viable quasi-democratic regime in Kabul. But with Islamabad playing an ambivalent role and quite likely providing safe havens for the Taliban on its territory there can be no military victory. Taking the two assumptions together and turning them on their heads, President Obama should be coming to the conclusion that killing more young Americans and Afghans while spending billions of dollars in a pointless war is not only a waste of resources, it is a course of action that will likely end up very badly indeed, making bloody and corrupt Iraq look like a model government in a civics class. Obama should take the opportunity provided by the death of bin Laden and the political space that his new-found popularity affords him to declare victory and get out of central Asia. And leaving a battlefront might become addictive, leading to some serious questioning of what is going on in Libya. The removal of the bin Laden threat will not undo ten years of bad policies and persistent blundering but it could well spark a revolution in the way Washington sees the rest of the world and could actually bring about some change for the better. Let us hope that President Obama has both the wisdom and the courage needed to grasp the nettle.

Criminal’s NATO and Afghan raid kills girl, cop

NOVANEWS

 


KABUL: NATO says its troops and Afghan forces mistakenly killed a young girl and a man who turned out to be a police officer during an overnight raid in eastern Afghanistan.

A NATO statement Thursday says a combined NATO-Afghan force was pursuing a Taleban leader in Nangarhar province’s Surkh Rod district on Wednesday, when a man came out of the targeted house threatening them with a gun.

It says the troops killed the man and then discovered he was a police officer. The troops also shot at someone running out of the back of the compound who they believed had a weapon. The soldiers later realized there was no weapon and that they had killed “an unarmed Afghan female adolescent.”

A neighbor, who goes by the name of Ayatullah, says the girl was 12 years old.

Zionist State: Sex Slavery The Growing Trade

NOVANEWS

 

Source–http://antiisgood.wordpress.com

Sex slavery: The growing trade in Israel, thousands of Eastern European and Russian girls lured to Tel Aviv and enslaved into prostitution.

As customers – demands for slave trade workers who do not have HIV or AIDS …

“Your male and female slaves are to come from the nations around you; from them you may buy slaves. You may also buy some of the temporary residents living among you and members of their clans born in your country, and they will become your property. You can will them to your children as inherited property and can make them slaves for life…..” (Leviticus 25:44-46)

There are an estimated 20,000 female sex slaves forced into prostitution in Tel-Aviv each year. According to a report released in 2005 by the Knesset Subcommittee on Trafficking in Women, between 10,000 and 15,000 women had been smuggled into Israel over the previous four years to work as prostitutes. According to the report, the women, who were mostly from the former Soviet Union, were sold at public auction for as much as $10,000 and forced to work up to 18 hours a day. On average, the women received only three percent of the money they earned from prostitution, and many were raped and beaten. Most of the women had been smuggled over the Egyptian border and lured from Russia and Eastern Europe on false promises of secretarial jobs.

Israel Sex Slavery Thrives
Israel and the Ugly Slavery Trade

Human rights groups have long demanded actions against the trade in women in Israel. These women many from the former Soviet, are working as prostitutes in a condition of virtual slavery. Many of the Russian women who have ended up in Israel’s brothels, some smuggled into the country from Egypt on the back of camels, expected to find jobs a cleaners and or working in childcare. There are certain places where auctions are taking place. The Israeli police well know the names. They are nightclubs or regular bars. The women are brought there, buyers come and look at their bodies and their teeth, then the bidding starts. They are held by the pimps, beaten and totally isolated

Dozens of brothels and peepshows have sprung up in Tel Aviv and Haifa in the last few years. There are over 20,000 women in prostitution in Tel Aviv. Their customers pay for 45,000 acts of prostitution every day. Women are held in apartments, bars and brothels where they are bought by up to 25 men a day. They sleep in shifts, four to a bed. (Police officials, Michael Specter, “Traffickers’ New Cargo: Naive Slavic Women, “New York Times, 11 January 1998, They cannot walk freely. They cannot leave the apartment as they wish. Usually the passports have been taken.

Amnesty International investigation of the trade in Russian women suggests Israel’s police and government officials have largely ignored the abuse.

The arrest of prostitutes is frequent, as illegal workers, the men who brought them to Israel many of whom are Israelis are not arrested. The Justice Ministry spokeswoman Etty Eshed (1998)said the government would think about making legal changes to address trafficking in the “near future” but had no date or plan for doing so. (Elisabeth Eaves, “Israel not the promised land for Russian sex slaves,” Reuters, 23 August 1998)

The Israeli police say they are powerless to stop the flow of trafficked women until the laws change. “They (trafficked women) are very much afraid to come to the police and complain, so the police really can’t do anything,” said a police spokeswoman Linda Menuhin. “Israel has no law against trafficking people, and no law against prostitution.” Rachel Benziman, legal adviser to the Israel Women’s Network, said there are a variety of crimes, rape, abduction, battery, deceit and theft which the authorities rarely bother to prosecute for, even though they have the power to do so. “It’s not a problem of finding the right section in the criminal code. It is more a problem of finding the women who will testify and finding the motivation. she said. (Elisabeth Eaves, “Israel not the promised land for Russian sex slaves,” Reuters, 23 August 1998)

Israel does not have a specific law against the sale of human beings. (Michael Specter, “Traffickers’ New Cargo: Naive Slavic Women,” New York Times, 11 January 1998). There is no law related to bringing women from another country into Israel for prostitution. (CEDAW Report, 8 April 1997) If trafficked and prostituted women are caught they are deported. Since 1994, not one woman has testified against a trafficker. (Betty Lahan, director of Neve Tirtsa Prison, Michael Specter, “Traffickers’ New Cargo: Naive Slavic Women,” New York Times, 11 January 1998)

There are no official numbers regarding the extent of prostitution and the traffic of women in Israel, but there is a general consensus that it is becoming more prevalent. (CEDAW Report, 8 April 1997). There has been a steady increase in the numbers of foreign women involved in prostitution who are arrested for illegal stays in Israel and who are detained before being deported to their home-countries; in over 95% of the cases, they were from the former USSR. The average time these women spend in prison is 50 days.

Israel Sex Slavery Thrives
Article Confirms Israel’s White Slave Trade
News/Comment Posted in National Vanguard 2003-12-08 – By Jeff Hook

Have you read the article “Fighting the Flesh Trade?” If not, please do. It confirms every fact revealed by the late Dr. William L. Pierce in his various American Dissident Voices broadcasts on the subject of Israel’s White Slave Trade. On December 5, 2001, the article appeared on the Jewsweek.com Web site — complete with accompanying images. I hosted a copy of it on the old Jeffsarchive Web site, until I received an e-mail from a law firm representing Jewsweek, informing me of their intent to sue if the article wasn’t removed immediately. I removed the article, and linked directly to their site. They then removed the article.

I then linked directly to the site of the copyright holder, the Jerusalem Post. By that evening, the Jerusalem Post had also removed the article. Well, that was two years ago. Now the Jerusalem Post has seen fit to re-activate the URL, so you might want to take a gander at what the Jews are doing to the women of our race. Here’s a synopsis:

1. 3,000 White European women per year are smuggled into Israel as sex slaves.
2. They are promised legitimate jobs, but put to work as prostitutes.
3. They are locked in apartments with barred windows.
4. They are relieved of their passports.
5. They are beaten, tortured, and gang-raped (Jewish method of “breaking them in”).
6. They are sold at pimping auctions! – during which they are forced to undress.
7. They are forced to service up to 15 Jews a day, 7 days a week, in Israel’s 400+ brothels.
8. There are 280 brothels in Tel Aviv alone!
9. Pimps and traffickers are ignored by police – prostitution is not a crime.

White slave trade now earns US$1 billion annually in Israel.
Worldwide Lack of Concern Over Israel’s White Slave Trade – By Frederico Napolitano – 04 14, 2004

Worldwide Lack of Concern Over Israel’s White Slave Trade News
Women from Eastern Europe continue to be preyed upon by Jewish slave dealers in Israel. In a deceptive and vile fashion, the Jewish slave racketeers often lure poverty-stricken girls from Russia, Ukraine, and other eastern European nations with the false notion of becoming a well-paid teacher or secretary. Many of these women are mothers or daughters who see these phony job listings as wonderful opportunities to improve their family’s economic situation.

Even the fraction who know they will work in the sex trade are not aware they will be abused and enslaved. Once they arrive in Israel, their passports and visas are destroyed. A process of utter intimidation to force the girls into compliance follows. Jewish pimps often rape and beat their victims in order to break their will to resist.

There is a little media recognition of the problem. In an article from the November 12 edition of the Jerusalem Post, editor Isaac Herzog writes that, “in the past few years Israel has been flooded with thousands of women who are smuggled into the country in order to engage in prostitution, as part of a vigorous trade.” In the past few years alone, Herzog states that nearly 3,000 women have been forced into sex slavery in Israel. Most of the women come from countries bled dry by over half a century of Jewish communism. With little prospects for a better life for themselves and their family, they trustingly come to Israel for a better job and are usually never heard from again. A very small percentage has escaped either by their own courageous efforts or due to a raid by Israeli immigration authorities.

Working in collusion with Jewish organized crime gangs in Europe, the girls are funneled into the slave state of Israel in a variety of atrocious ways. Acting in accordance with their Talmudic sanctioning of treating Gentiles like cattle, the Israeli dealers savagely compel the “cargo” to trek across the unforgiving Egyptian desert at all times of the day in any type of weather. “Women who complain of any kind of pain during the taxing march are drugged with medications and painkillers, and anyone who breaks down and collapses is abandoned on the roadside in the desert, as if she were a dying freight animal,” says Herzog.

The problem is exacerbated by the fact that the same tribe who engages in this trafficking of White women is the same tribe who owns and manages nearly all of the mass media in America and Europe. Jews make up only a tiny fraction of all White nations, yet occupy most of the managerial and ownership positions of the news and entertainment media. The profound lack of knowledge about the plight of these women would most likely not be the same if the victims were Jewish and the traders were Gentiles.

Israel Trafficking
There are no official numbers regarding the extent of prostitution and the traffic of women in Israel, but there is a general consensus that it is becoming more prevalent. (CEDAW Report, 8 April 1997)

There has been a steady increase in the numbers of foreign women involved in prostitution who are arrested for illegal stays in Israel and who are detained before being deported to their home-countries; in over 95% of the cases, they were from the former USSR. The average time these women spend in prison is 50 days. The women themselves are supposed to pay for their expenses to leave Israel, but when their resources are inadequate, the Ministry of Interior finances their deportation from a special budget. (Authorities, Neve Tirza women’s prison, CEDAW Report, 8 April 1997)

Traffickers and pimps earned US $50,000 – 100,000 a year from each prostituted woman, resulting in a US $450 million sex industry. (“A modern form of slavery,” The Jerusalem Post, 13 January 1998)

1,500 Russian and Ukrainian trafficked women have been deported from 1995-1997. (Michael Specter, “Traffickers’ New Cargo: Naive Slavic Women,” New York Times, 11 January 1998)

A small brothel with ten women can make up to 750,000 shekels a month (US $215,000). (Michael Specter, “Traffickers’ New Cargo: Naive Slavic Women,” New York Times, 11 January 1998)

Women trafficked from Eastern Europe, were stripped and sold naked as slaves to Tel Aviv traders for US$500-1,000. Smuggling, fraudulent documents, collaboration between police and brothel owners are involved. There are routine brutal beatings and sexual abuse. (New York Times 11 January 1998)

The non-profit Israel Women’s Network estimates that 70% of prostituted women in Tel Aviv, Israel’s commercial center, come from the former Soviet republics, and that about 1,000 women are brought into Israel illegally each year. At any one time, as many as 100 women may be awaiting deportation in Neve Tirza women’s prison near Tel Aviv’s Ben-Gurion airport, a prison spokeswoman said. (Elisabeth Eaves, “Israel not the promised land for Russian sex slaves”, Reuters, 23 August 1998)

A poll by the Women’s Network showed 44% of Israelis believed all Russian immigrant women provided sexual services for pay. Illegal immigrants in Israel, who are mostly Russian, are often stereotyped as having brought crime and prostitution while exploiting Israeli laws enabling anyone with a Jewish grandparent to immigrate.(Elisabeth Eaves, “Israel not the promised land for Russian sex slaves,” Reuters, 23 August 1998)

Official Response and Action
While trafficked women are frequently arrested as illegal workers, the men who brought them to Israel – many of whom are Israeli citizens — are not. Justice Ministry spokeswoman Etty Eshed said the government would think about making legal changes to address trafficking in the “near future” but had no date or plan for doing so. (Elisabeth Eaves, “Israel not the promised land for Russian sex slaves,” Reuters, 23 August 1998)

Police in Israel say they are powerless to stop the flow of trafficked women until the laws change. “They (trafficked women) are very much afraid to come to the police and complain, so the police really can’t do anything,” said spokeswoman Linda Menuhin. “The problem is there is no law against trafficking people, and no law against prostitution.” Rachel Benziman, legal adviser to the Israel Women’s Network, said there are a variety of crimes — rape, abduction, battery, deceit and theft — which the authorities rarely bother to prosecute for, even though they have the power to do so. “It’s not a problem of finding the right section in the criminal code. It is more a problem of finding the women who will testify and finding the motivation. When it comes to drug dealing, the police don’t wait for someone to come into their office and say they have found drugs. They look for it. We expect them to do the same thing for the trafficking of women — but they don’t,” she said. (Elisabeth Eaves, “Israel not the promised land for Russian sex slaves,” Reuters, 23 August 1998)

Policy and Law
Israel does not have a specific law against the sale of human beings. (Michael Specter, “Traffickers’ New Cargo: Naive Slavic Women,” New York Times, 11 January 1998)

There is no law related to bringing women from another country into Israel for prostitution. (CEDAW Report, 8 April 1997)

If trafficked and prostituted women are caught they are deported. Since 1994, not one woman has testified against a trafficker. (Betty Lahan, director of Neve Tirtsa Prison, Michael Specter, “Traffickers’ New Cargo: Naive Slavic Women,” New York Times, 11 January 1998)

Omar Bin Laden, Osama Bin Laden Son: Sea Burial Demeaning, Killing ‘Criminal’: Report

NOVANEWS

 

Omar Bin Laden

 

A statement purporting to come from a son of Osama bin Laden denounced the al Qaeda leader’s killing as “criminal” and said his burial at sea had humiliated the family, an online monitoring service said.

The statement, attributed to Omar bin Laden, bin Laden’s fourth eldest son, said the al Qaeda chief’s children reserved the right to take legal action in the United States and internationally to “determine the true fate of our vanished father,” the SITE Intelligence Group said.

There was no independent confirmation of the authenticity of the letter, published on the website of Islamist ideologue Abu Walid al-Masri, although several specialists on militant propaganda said the text appeared genuine.

Omar bin Laden, who has been based in the Gulf in recent years, did not immediately respond to emailed and telephoned requests for comment.

The letter said, in part: “We hold the American President (Barack) Obama legally responsible to clarify the fate of our father, Osama bin Laden, for it is unacceptable, humanely and religiously, to dispose of a person with such importance and status among his people, by throwing his body into the sea in that way, which demeans and humiliates his family and his supporters and which challenges religious provisions and feelings of hundreds of millions of Muslims.”

The letter said the U.S. administration had offered no proof to back up its account of the mission. It alleged the goal of the raid had been to kill and not arrest, adding that afterwards the American commandos had “rushed to dispose of the body.”

ADVERTISEMENT

Some Muslims have misgivings about how U.S. forces killed bin Laden in a raid in Pakistan on May 2 and disposed of his body in the ocean.

Questions have multiplied since the White House said the al Qaeda leader was unarmed when U.S. helicopter-borne commandos raided the villa where he was hiding in the city of Abbottabad.

Bin Laden’s swift burial at sea, in what many Muslims say was a violation of Islamic custom, has also stirred anger.
