Rohingya people trying to cross the Naf river into Bangladesh to escape the genocide

by Kevin Barrett

The West, led by the US, is pouring huge sums of money into Myanmar (Burma) and blathering about the supposed “democratization” of that long-time human rights pariah nation. Meanwhile, the Rohingyas – a Muslim ethnic group called “the most persecuted group in the world” by the UN – are facing slow-motion extermination. Though they’ve lived there for centuries, Burma’s government refuses to grant them citizenship, and is trying to get rid of them.

Mass murder, pogroms, the burning of homes and mosques – the usual tools of attempted genocide – are being deployed against them. And still the US lavishes money and praise on the regime…while Nobel prize-winning human rights icon Ang San Suu Kyi ignores the genocide in her own country. I was a guest on yesterday’s Press TV program on the slow-motion genocide of the Rohingyas:

Myanmar’s democracy icon Ang San Suu Kyi and Nobel Peace prize winner has not spoken out against atrocities and ethnic cleansing proposal against the Rohingya people. The silence from Ang San Suu Kyi is deafening as Myanmar’s President Thein Sein, a former junta general said on Thursday that the “only solution” was to send nearly a million Rohingya Muslims – one of the world’s most persecuted minorities — to refugee camps run by United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). “We will send them away if any third country would accept them,” he added. “This is what we are thinking is the solution to the issue.” The UN refugee agency has snubbed the idea of setting up refugee camps to accommodate the Rohingyas. The UN says decades of discrimination have left the Rohingyas stateless, with Myanmar implementing restrictions on their movements and withholding land rights, education and public services. For the past two years, waves of ethnic Muslims have attempted to flee the country in the face of systematic oppression by the Myanmar government. The government of Myanmar refuses to recognize them claiming the Rohingyas are not native and has classified them as illegal migrants, although they have lived in Myanmar for centuries.

Let it Begin Here, the American Armageddon

I EXPECTED THE REAL SATAN TO BE…LESS OBNOXIOUS

If There is a Satan, His Home is America

 by  Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

There are no people in the world like Americans.  Americans love their country so much and have, because of that blinded love, Americans have become, if any people today are, the representation of the power of Satan on earth. 

That  love turns to hate quickly and never with a moment of thought that those who point the fingers, where to bomb, where to hit, are, invariably the enemy themselves.

From the controversial new HBO television show,Newsroom:

YouTube

Americans lie.  America’s real history is stealing land from Indians, slavery, treachery of every kind at every turn, the Mexican War, the Spanish American War, the Robber Barons who owned our government then, 150 years ago.

Their great grandchildren help control the world and orchestrate war, drug dealing, eternal disease and poverty, these are American also. This is the heritage of American “conservatives.”

More American heritage is that of crime, imported from the sewers of Europe, some organizations centuries old, criminals to prey upon a nation of immigrants, keeping them in generations of slavery while our cities grew tall and fat and hard cities governed by criminals.

They are much the same today, industries controlled by cabals of gangsters, hardly just banking, oil and defense, all of them, from timber and coal to diamonds and gold, all rigged, fixed like our elections.

The Five Points Gang – Early  1900′s

Our government has and always will be the collection of thieves we deserve.  No office can be held without the nod from the mob leaders, without millions in drug money flowing in.

Moments ago, I was watching a Youtube video of a county sheriff talking about his oath.  Before three words were out he began to show his real bosses, the timber companies.  For others, it is the mine owners, the plunderers of the land, fracking America into a poisoned pit of filth.

We love America so much we put our children in schools we hate, move them on to jails and prisons where they are sexually abused, starved to death on frozen “pot pies” and baloney sandwiches made from discarded mouldy bread. 

Fifteen million of our children rot in prison, two million more serve in our military.

I was one of those.  You can ride a “joystick” and destroy and enemy “convoy” that turns out to be a wedding party.

Where our troops go – the drugs flow

You can load bales of heroin onto planes, told that this is how we “stabilize” Afghanistan as we stabilized so many other nations before, across South and Central America, Southeast Asia, always leaving death in our wake.

America?  One family, the Bush boys, three generations of them, managed to put one commodity on a downward price spiral, perhaps the only economic success we enjoy.

Our children can now buy heroin and cocaine, ecstasy and “meth” at bargain prices, dropping every day as planeloads fly in from around the world or are carried over the Mexican border that we talk of so much but leave wide open.

We used to just love slave labor but the drug money pays better.  But who does it pay?

Drug money pays those who talk the loudest, the gun totin’ sheriffs, the prosecuting attorneys, those empowered with protecting our borders, those who run our banks and, most of all, drug money flows into the retirement funds of our congress.

They get several billion dollars a year in drug profits. Why do we have 15 million of our kids locked up?  Drugs.

This is the primary reason and to market drugs in a carefully orchestrated collapsed economy is like selling candy to a baby, which, of course, is what we do.

What are our other addictions?  Americans pay.  We don’t like taxes, instead prices of everything in America reflect rigging, every day, just to survive, bills arrive.

Welcome to the nuclear age – literally.

For those stupid enough, you can spend your entire income on texting, “tweeting” and “pay per view” television.

We also pay for water, something quickly disappearing or sewers or electricity and the sulphurous smoke or invisible radiation that is the byproduct.

Every nuclear plant leaks, leaks a hundred times more than we are told, actually, we are never told. Drive the highways, look at half of America’s trees, dying from acid rain, state after state, laws “revised” during the Bush43 regime.

There is no poison deadly enough, no pollution dirty enough, nothing so bad that Americans can’t breath or eat or drink it, no medicine dangerous enough or expensive enough, not when there is profit to be made.

While you aren’t looking, we double the interest on your mortgage.  Your home, years of savings and work, years of pride, now worthless, “upside down” as we call it, owned no longer by you but a bank.

Do, they really own it?

Then we look at the banks, the money they lent wasn’t theirs, they things they say they own they had sold off long ago, sometimes twice, as during the Reagan “savings and loan” period.

Pick up the newspaper, look at the job ads.  There are no real jobs, not even for college grads, not for nurses or police officers or teachers.  In most of America, a college education won’t buy you a job making hamburgers on the midnight shift.

Another generation of soldiers get to play destroyed health roulette.

Every job, what do we offer?  We offer our children jobs where they are taught to lie, to prey on the hopes of the poor, claims “We will save your home,” or worse, magic elixers to cure all ills.

We offer imaginary training for jobs that never existed, our children work as shills for gangsters or they join the military and take their chances.

How does our military care for its own?

Over one million veterans who claim the government has cheated them will testify.  And 50,000 soldiers, once “heroes” who were thrown out of the military after years of service will testify.

War crimes tribunals around the world will testify to the good works we set to in the name of “freedom.”

Good works = drugs and death

I look back nearly half a century ago.  I see a nation of factories and small homes, of new and growing businesses, a nation learning to respect its own, challenges of racial prejudice and equal rights based on gender, that and other vital issues were our failure.

We were raping our land, poisoning our workers, we would learn, for awhile at least, we would grow, we would change and then, I pick the year 1972, it stopped.

We began going backwards, first slowly, then more rapidly.

Was this the forerunner of what our lives were going to look like?

Our new middle class, larger homes, better jobs, more education first grew then it shrunk and now it is gone.

The homes, millions of them, stand empty as do thousands of factories.

The money is there but now we know it isn’t real.  Before we had less and owed nothing.  Now we have nothing and owe everything.

I remember, not so long ago, being asked to “accept” a seat in congress.  The election, I was told, was rigged.

I had been a lobbyist for powerful companies, was a war veteran and was told I could have the “easy life” in Washington as long as I asked no questions and did as I was told.

I knew then Washington was filled with thieves and I saw myself as above them somehow.  I must have been insane.

There is still an America.  People still work a long hard day.  There are few families, most are broken, children with one parent, the other unemployed, jailed, addicted to drugs or alcohol.

Trillions of dollars are out there, 40% with a few dozen people, the rest with a few thousand more.

There is fear.  I have watched a dozen friends go from relative wealth and ease, private planes, summer homes, luxury vacations to sleeping outdoors and begging food.

They had the wrong skills.  Instead, I was trained to shuffle money back and forth, to tap telephones, to rig elections, to tell people what they wanted to hear.

I got to be one of the hundreds of thousands who fit in the NWO’s version of the world, where nations order car bomb attacks the same way you order “take away” Chinese food.

SWIFT – Turning electrons into money – At least for a while.

I remember, years ago, when I first learned I could create a billion dollars out of thin air using the SWIFT system and “less than nothing” for collateral for what we termed “financial instruments that carry the full faith and credit….”

Ah, language, the delightful moral flexibility of language.

Yesterday, former vice president Dick Cheney endorsed Mitt Romney for president.  Cheney is the single most hated person of the last 75 years.

Were people better informed, you might take that to the last thousand years.

The job of the endless “lie machines” is to convince Americans that electing Romney, a despicable fraud and moron, to the White House doesn’t matter.  They can prove they are correct.

Were they more honest they could simply admit that since the Supreme Court is controlled by organized crime and most of Congress is under the thumb of an unspeakable secret society, even I won’t touch this further, it doesn’t matter who you elect.

My only comment is simple.  How fast do you want your kids to die?  Romney can certainly hurry up their end, his every word tells us that. Study his beliefs, take time, look into them carefully, his history, what he says, watch his face, hear his words. Evil? I believe he is genuinely evil.

Are there people who wish all Americans dead, who wish America a smoking ruin?  Of course there are.

Our problem is that many of those people are members of our government, some leaders of our military, fewer now than in 2008, but they are Americans.

Where is the Romney big money coming from? What do they want in return?

Watching Romney tell the NAACP that he would gladly begin a race war, basking in their endless booing, one could take that as a sign, not one from heaven certainly.

Romney is a Mormon and to him, heaven is a planet where he will inseminate endless virgins, mindless floating vaginas of no distinguishable age or race.

Yes, this is exactly what Romney believes, this is the core of Mormonism, kind of like Scientology, actually, a lot like Scientology.

You get lots of “being a god” rather than following the teachings of a god.  Think of it as like selling free car insurance, which is exactly what it is compared to.

Hey, but with Washington filled with buggering thieves, what does it matter anyway?

—————–

ROMNEY BIRTHER QUESTION

Father George and son Mitt Romney

Few are aware but George Romney, father of Mitt, was born in Mexico.  What fewer know is that his parents had fled the US and renounced their American citizenship.

They never had it renewed, instead entered the US illegally through Mexico with their Mexican born son, father of Mitt Romney.

This would make Romney, Mitt Romney, the son of an illegal alien.

This was a confusing time in American history, with Mormons fighting two wars against the United States, not just over polygamy but over the genocide that the Mormon Dannites practiced against Christians.

Finding this history, as with much more, will be a challenge.  Mormon history is one of violence, some perpetrated by Mormons, massacres, and some against.

However, it did lead to two wars, 1858 and 1880, where Mormons rebelled against the United States, many fleeing the country, renouncing citizenship and many returning without complying with required oaths of allegiance or following citizenship guidelines.

To an extent, even today, areas of Mormon majority inside the US tend to follow theocratic law, not unlike Sharia law, rather than English Common Law as expressed through the Constitution.

Ask a Christian who shows up in a Mormon based court.

Ah, but this is, part and parcel, the nature of regionalism, is it not?

NUCLEAR FALSE FLAG FUTURE

By Jeff Prager for Veterans Today

I’m not a physicist but I understand physics better than most. Not just any physics since the field is even more specialized than medicine. You wouldn’t see an endocrinologist for lower spinal surgery would you?

You also wouldn’t see a physicist preoccupied with the Bose-Higgson to evaluate the elements found in the 35+ dust samples taken by the USGS at Ground Zero. Specifically, thorium, uranium, strontium, barium, cerium, lanthanum, yttrium, potassium, sodium, antimony, molybdenum, magnesium, vanadium and several other elements were collected in dust samples mapped at Ground Zero and collected in double bagged procedure.

My specialty is nuclear demolition and even more specifically, fusion triggered fission devices of a micro-scale. Although I may be a layman I’m a retired layman and my hobby is reading. Granted, some folks my age love golf, or fishing, or hunting, or any myriad of hobbies and beloved passtimes. I read. All day. Every day. My personal philosophy not realized until my very late 40s, like 49, is that the purpose of life is to educate ones self and the primary sources of education based on Socrates and Plato’s philosophies is reading and dialogue or cordial argument between adversaries. Of course I can’t read along with you but I can provide you with some brief dialogue to consider.

We live in what I call the Age Of Depletion. Examine peer reviewed geologic data and copper is going to deplete in the near future, around 2040 or soon thereafter. Sooner than other natural resources. Copper powers everything and there are only very poor replacements; aluminum loses significant current to the atmosphere.

In the Age Of Depletion governments have access to the very latest science and they plan not just this year, next year and the year fater but 25, 50 and 100 years in advance and they develop contingency plans for every possible scenario that might develop. We could accurately state that they have plans A, B, C, D, E, F, G, H, I, J and  K with several more plans like REX84 and other such described executive measures to protect the elite, the wealthy, and the influential.

We also live in what I call the Age Of The Micro Nuclear Device. Interestingly, these devices don’t look much different than conventional large explosive devices except they’re quite small, and far more importantly they’re designed using a fission/fusion hybrid detonation mechanism which reduces residual radiation in three significant ways. First, total radiation is reduced by 97-99% and second, residual radiation dissipates in just days, a week at the most. Last, moisture, rain, flooding or water of any kind also rapidly reduces the radiation to almost undetectable levels.

The international nuclear treaties covered pure fission of plutonium and uranium. They do not cover hybrid fusion triggered fission devices of the type I described above. The global military industrial complex, intelligence agencies, shadow governments (your choice of terminology here) and influential wealthy criminal cabals needed to develop weapons that weren’t covered under international treaties and thus could be used with impunity. This was done. Micro sized fusion triggered fission devices work perfectly and aren’t covered by international treaties.

A fusion triggered fission device detonates in less than 600 billionths of a second; approximately 550 billionths for the fusion process and 50 billionths for the fission, and sometimes much less. The fusion boost increases total yield many fold yet reduces overall radiation output.

I mentioned the Age Of Depletion for a critically and crucial reason. We are in it. Lumber, water, petroleum, copper, the rare earth metals and certain other natural resources are in short supply when viewed across the next several decades. We have a hard time planning next month. Governments plan 25, 50 and 100 years in advance as I mentioned.

Bali, Beirut, the USS Cole, Mumbai and several other alleged terrorist bombings were false-flag micro-nuclear events perpetrated by intelligence organizations to further the agenda of regime change and the fraudulent and farcical War On Terror which now manifests itself in every country, the USA included. Micro nuclear devices were used in Oklahoma City and several other false flag terror events perpetrated by the rogue and not-so-rogue intelligence community.
Micro-nuclear devices are here to stay. Nuclear grenades. Nuclear golf balls. Nano-nukes. Just ask the 1000s of dead First Responders who have often died from not one, not two, but three rare cancers. Reggie Hillaire just recovered last year from thyroid cancer. He just came down with Multiple Myeloma, a rare blood plasma cancer that only afflicts people over 70. Reggie is under 50. Multiple Myeloma, non-Hodgkins Lymphoma, Esophageal cancer, Brain cancers, Pancreatic cancers, Leukemia and other forms of RAPIDLY developing cancer is seen in First Responders yet never before seen anywhere else other than Chernobyl, Nagasaki and Hiroshima.

This isn’t an essay to theorize that 911 was a nuclear event. It’s an essay to wake up America, perhaps the world, that highly sophisticated micro-nuclear devices not only exist but are used with some fair regularity. Nuclear physicist Dr. Christopher Busby found proof of these devices in the deserts of Iraq, specifically in Fallujah bomb craters and other local Iraqi areas using hair samples from many dozens of volunteers. Enriched uranium was used in Iraq. His report was published in a prestigious peer reviewed journal in the UK within the last few months.

911 was nuclear. It’s not the first nuclear event and it won’t be the last. Expect more. It’s inevitable. I believe a nuclear event will happen again in the USA.

Last, I’d like to make it clear as the sun rises that the newest micro nuclear devices look nothing like you might expect when detonated, leave almost no detectable radiation for more than a few days at most, sometimes only hours, require sophisticated detection equipment to distinguish and identify the rare isotopes and can often mimic the explosion of a small grenade. Don’t be fooled. These devices are used with great regularity.

Here is unequivocal and irrefutable physics, chemistry and mathematics proof that 911 was a nuclear event:

The Rape of Greece by (Jewish) Bankers

NOVANEWS

Mike Stathis, Chief Investment Strategist, AVA Investment Analytics

After suffering through nearly five years of a very severe recession, the worst is yet to come for the Greek people. According to consensus estimates it will take twelve years for the Greek economy to regain its pre-recession output.

Although I view this estimate as generous, it nevertheless represents an extremely slow recovery when compared to the most adversely affected nations from previous financial crises. My own estimates indicate that it will take Greece at least eighteen years to reach its pre-recession economic output.

Even if Greece were to begin its recovery later this year, it will have lost more than 16% of GDP since its pre-recession peak, making it one of the most severe losses of economic output seen from all financial crises in the 20th and 21st centuries.

Of course, Greece is not going to begin a recovery in 2012, 2013 or 2014. In fact, by the time the IMF is finished with its austerity measures, Greece could set a new world record in terms of economic destruction.

So what is the root cause for the implosion of the Greek economy?

Is it due to the nation’s high rate of tax evasion, lack of competitiveness, its overly generous retirement system and poor labor participation, as we have all been told by the media and their “expert” sources?

If you believe these are the real reasons for the collapse of Greece, you may have also been fooled by other myths and lies spread by the banking cartel and their media friends.

The big secret is that the formation of the euro has been largely responsible for the economic problems seen in many of the euro zone member states. This has obvious implications for both of the future of the euro as well as the future composition of the euro zone.

Numerous economic organizations aligned with the globalization and banking establishments have even acknowledged that the decline in the current accounts of South East Area (SEA) countries coincided with their entry into the European Monetary Union (EMU).

For instance, in a research report published nearly three years ago the IMF admitted that just prior to entry into the EMU, several SEA European nations began to record a current account deficit, reflecting various economic and infrastructural imbalances within the euro zone.

According to official data from a variety of sources, the current accounts in seven nations within the SEA have imploded since the mid-1990s. For instance, in 1994, these nations maintained an overall average current account balance to an average deficit of 10% in 2008.1

In contrast, the picture in Northern Europe (the Northern Euro Area, NEA) is radically different. When the current accounts of the NEA are examined, eight nations have accumulated current account surpluses over the same period.2

By the IMF’s own admission, it was the creation of the EMU that drove the declines in current accounts by allowing countries to maintain their investment levels above what could be financed from lower domestic saving.

This admission is quite striking considering that the IMF is not only part of the international banking cartel, but is also a component of the globalization establishment.

1 The SEA consists of Cyprus, Greece, Italy, Malta, Portugal, Slovenia, and Spain. SEA-4 denotes the four largest SEA countries: Greece, Italy, Portugal, and Spain; the latter three joined the EMU in 1994 and the euro area in 1999, and Greece joined the euro area in 2001. The remaining SEA countries, SEA-3 (Cyprus, Malta, and Slovenia) joined the EMU in 2004 and the euro area in 2007–08. Not included in this analysis is Slovakia, which joined the EMU in 2009.
2 The NEA comprises Austria, Belgium, Finland, France, Germany, Ireland, Luxembourg, and the Netherlands.

 

Thus, adoption of the euro has largely been responsible for the current economic problems seen in Greece, Italy, Spain, and other nations. They were doomed from the beginning due to the inherent differences in each nation’s economic, trade and infrastructural base. These differences served as inspiration for the formation of the euro as a way for NEA nations to exploit their SEA counterparts. This is a point that I detailed more than three years ago.

“One thing is for certain. In order for the union to succeed, all nations must be provided with a somewhat equivalent infrastructural base. Otherwise, the disparities in commerce will present problems.

Let me give you a simple example of this. Arguably, Germany has the most modernized road system in Europe. This enables an efficient means of transportation for a vibrant consumer and business activity.

In contrast, Greece’s transportation infrastructure is horrendous. As a result, the cost structure for goods and many services is higher by necessity. This disparity leads to a relative difference in the strength of the euro depending on which nation you are in. But there are other economic uncertainties, such as who will bail out troubled nations.

Given the economic, social and sovereignty issues, it is possible that by 2020, Germany will pull out of the union, most likely for economic reasons alone. If that happens, you can bet France will soon follow.”

Source: AVA Investment Analytics, June 2009 Intelligent Investor. May 27, 2009.

 

As the true architects of the EMU, the Jewish Banking Cartel realized that the euro would create economic problems for SEA member states. But they didn’t tell German and French officials. Instead, they promoted the euro as a gateway to greater economic prosperity for NEA nations in order to gain support from Germany and France.

The only problem was that the bankers neglected mention of contingent liabilities that would surface as SEA nations collapsed. Now that the destructive nature of the EMU is beginning to surface, German and French officials are second-guessing whether they will remain in the EMU over the long-term. These discussions have been ongoing for a while now, but they have not received much media coverage because the most serious talks have occurred behind the scenes.

There is a very good reason why the U.K. never joined the euro. Hopefully, by now you realize why.

My guess is that the IMF regrets publishing the research report referred to in this article because it really blows the lid off of the myths that the euro would bring economic prosperity for all member states.

Immediately after the euro was launched, Wall Street banks and their associates in Europe began

flooding Greece and other EU member states vast sums of consumer credit.The idea was to pervert European consumers to become as irresponsible as those in the U.S. The bankers achieved this objective in just a few short years.

The timing of this financial bait-and-switch was indeed very convenient for Wall Street, as it coincided with the collapse of the dotcom bubble in the U.S. Thus, a refocus on European consumers during the dotcom recession in the U.S. provided Wall Street parasites and their colleagues in Europe with new hosts.

In the early stages of the take down, bankers made enormous sums of money flooding European nations with consumer and business credit. Now that many of these nations are economically distressed, the bankers are moving in to seize a good deal of taxpayer-owned assets using the IMF as its Trojan horse.

IMF officials have infiltrated many EU nations, offering to supply each with finance capital that has come from taxpayers from around the globe. In return, these nations are required to adhere to very specific criteria in order to receive new rounds of financing. With each round of financing comes the promise of further economic destruction.

In short, rather than some humanitarian rescue fund, the IMF serves as a taxpayer-funded Leveraged-Buyout firm which for some strange reason is controlled by the international banking cartel. Once a nation agrees to accept funds from the IMF, it has agreed to allow bankers to reengineer the entire nation. You can imagine which side stands to benefit and which stands to lose.

As part of its conditional loan agreements, the IMF has implemented a very controversial form of austerity which it has used since its formation decades ago. In fact, the austerity measures utilized by the IMF have been directly responsible for the much of the demise of the Greek economy since 2010.

It is a well-known fact that the IMF’s approach to austerity most often destroys rather than restores economic stability. As history shows, in almost every situation when the IMF has become involved, it has made the nation worse off. Many nations are aware of this. Just ask officials in Brazil, Iceland, Hungary, Argentina, and many other nations what they think of the IMF. Greece is now learning how the IMF works.

The IMF’s approach to austerity has been structured as a pro-cyclical fiscal policy, which is designed to 

tighten the budget. The objective of this approach is to improve the target nation’s competition by a reduction in labor costs that is expected to materialize as the result of internal devaluation of the economy. In turn, export trade is supposed to become more competitive, which is expected to help the recovery process. But this cookie-cutter approach is riddled with numerous flaws.

In most cases when the IMF becomes involved, the pro-cyclical approach does more harm than good because it has been designed as a solution to address normal economic contractions. But the IMF only enters the picture when nations are facing very severe economic problems that extend beyond those encountered during typical economic contractions. As a result, the IMF’s pro-cyclical approach actually makes nations worse off because the “geniuses” at the IMF assume that the economic problems are cyclical in nature. Clearly, the problems in Greece do not resemble those seen during a normal economic contraction. Greece is in fact in a severe depression.

Furthermore, as a way to carry out its globalization agenda, the IMF disregards the cultural uniqueness

of nations it seeks to “assist,” thereby inflicting lasting socioeconomic and political disruptions. This points to an entirely different topic of discussion that I may address in the future.

Overall, the economic approach taken by the IMF is one of privatization. This leads to a large reduction in government control of the economy. While some might view this as a good thing, the problem is that government control of basic goods and services is required in order to prevent industry collusion and price gouging which is often the result of privatization in nations with poor regulatory controls. The U.S. offers a good illustration of this point.

European politicians have been led to believe that the IMF’s recommendations are in the best interest of the people. Yet, the IMF’s misguided approach to austerity continues to harm the entire European economy. This is not by coincidence, as the IMF serves as an arm of the Jewish Banking Cartel, which itself is the primary component of the Jewish Mafia.

The Western media has also played a key role in the rape of Greece by the banking segment of the Jewish Mafia. As always, the Western media monopoly has teamed up with establishment economists in order to convince the people that the IMF is competent and is acting in their best interests.

The media has also placed sole blame for Greece’s economic problems on Greek officials and the Greek people. This is a theme that is all too familiar. As one example, you will recall how the media focused on “greedy” and “deceitful” homebuyers in the U.S. as the source of the real estate collapse rather than focusing on widespread fraud by Wall Street banks.

Serving as a very important component of the Jewish Mafia, the means by which the Western media monopoly operates is all too predictable. It always blames the victims and never the villains. This mechanism serves as the primary means to prevent revolts in response to criminal activities committed by bankers, corporations and governments. When this approach is not fully effective, the Jewish Mafia uses its operatives in the government to intimidate and incarcerate individuals that threaten to uncover the entire operation.

It is certainly true that Greece has a very high level of tax evasion, is not as competitive as nor is as open to trade in comparison to most E.U. member states. But the fact is that its system of commerce has served it well for centuries. The same can also be said of Italy, Spain, Portugal and other member states whose economies have imploded since joining the EMU.

Each of these nations made the vital mistake of joining the EU and more recently the EMU. Once they accepted the globalization philosophy engineered by the Jewish Mafia, each participant nation cast aside its sovereignty, and thus control over its destiny.

Just as planned, the European component of the globalization scheme has served as a portal for the Jewish Mafia to pervert the society and extort the economy of each EU member state. Thus, Greece offers a glimpse of what the future holds for other nations in the EU.

Due to the IMF’s continued austerity, Greece’s economy continues to worsen. The unemployment rate in Greece is near record-highs, unit labor costs remain among the highest in the euro zone, while Greece’s Real Effective Exchange Rate remains higher than prior to its recession in 2006.

Not only has internal devaluation sought by the IMF’s pro-cyclical strategy not worked, Greece’s economy has been made much worse than it would have been without the “assistance” of the IMF.

Rather than focus on addressing longer-term issues, the bankers have continued to cut government spending and wages at the worst possible time. For instance, during the 2010-2011 period, the IMF demanded Greece cut spending by a whopping 8.7% of GDP.

For 2012, the IMF has approved spending cuts of 2.8% of GDP, most of which is slated to come from revenue increases. Much of this revenue boost is expected to come from a clampdown on tax collection from wealthy citizens, while the rest will come from the IMF’s radical privatization plan.

Private property owners are also being targeted by the banking cartel. Greek property owners are now required to pay a special “emergency” property tax which has been linked to their electric bill. If this tax is not paid by the due date, the “plug is pulled.”

The IMF has also “convinced” Greek officials to slash 150,000 government jobs by 2015 and weaken collective bargaining arrangements. And the minimum wage was recently cut by 20% for workers 25 and over, and by 32% for those under 25.

The 2013-2014 period promises to cause much more pain for Greeks, as the IMF has pushed Greek officials towards spending cuts, specifically from pensions, social transfers and defense. While the Greek youth suffers an unemployment rate of 50%, Greek adults face pension cuts of up to 40%. There appears to be no end in sight to the rape of Greece by the Jewish Banking Cartel.

Since the IMF’s First Review of the Stand-By Arrangement released in September 2010, the organization has consistently underestimated the severity of Greece’s economic contraction. In total the miss in GDP by the IMF since this time has been greater than 7%. This is a huge miss, especially considering the short time span of the estimates, the IMF’s open access to official data, and the huge number of IMF staff members dedicated to this nation.

In each of the five reviews conducted by the IMF since September 2010, Greek GDP and unemployment rate projections missed by a huge mark. As a result, the IMF had to lower its GDP and raise its unemployment estimates in subsequent reviews.

As a result of the IMF’s austerity initiatives, virtually every economic and financial measure of Greece’s economy remains in a downward trend, from the stock market, retail sales, and current account balance, to GDP, PMI, bank deposits and new car registrations; many continuing to make new lows. The notable exceptions are the new highs being made in Greece’s interest burden on its debt, spreads with euro bonds, its unemployment rate (now at nearly 22%), and unit labor costs.

It is important to remember that the IMF is staffed with thousands of “highly trained” analysts and economists who are paid very handsomely. They also receive one of the most generous public sector retirement pensions which are of course funded by taxpayers from around the world.

Upon careful examination of the economic data and projections from each review conducted by the IMF, I have concluded that there is absolutely no way an economic.

organization staffed with reasonably competent individuals could consistently make so many mistakes of such a large magnitude over a period of less than two years. Thus, either the IMF is remarkably incompetent, or IMF officials have intentionally understated their estimates for the Greek economy.

What could be the motive of the IMF to mislead Greek officials?

Part of the blueprint of the Jewish banking heist is to privatize a great deal of Greece’s public assets. This privatization plan will turn over valuable public assets in Greece to the private markets, enabling the vultures to squeeze as much money from Greek citizens as possible. Accordingly, projections by the IMF rely heavily on the private sector to extract large sums of money from Greeks (€35 billion over the next two years, or 15.4% of GDP) in order to “improve productivity.”

It is my opinion that the IMF made extraordinarily optimistic projections and has only made modest revisions with each review it has conducted in order to lure Greek officials into accepting this privatization plan. In support of this accusation, it has been reported by highly reputable sources that other much less optimistic projections were not being made public.

On the other hand, if Greek officials had been provided with accurate projections early on, it is likely they would have opted to default on the national debt without accepting the privatization plan. A complete default in Greek debt would have hit the bankers very hard. But with the help of the IMF, the Jewish Banking Cartel will get taxpayers to pay back the debt while they strip Greece of government assets.

If my analysis is correct, the actions by the IMF represent a form of premeditated economic extortion.

Even if I am wrong, at the very least, IMF head Lagarde should be forced to resign and a complete overhaul of this taxpayer-funded organization should commence.

Don’t expect anyone to face criminal charges for this heist because bankers are never held accountable, especially when they are Jewish. A large portion of their getaway always occurs through the hands of the media crime bosses who distract and spin things so that the real criminals are shielded from scrutiny.

By misrepresenting the reality of Greece’s demise, the media has hoodwinked people to think that this blatant fraud is the result of Greece’s own internal failures. As a result, very few people even realize the bankers are engaging in economic extortion.

In response to its own incompetence (or even complicit fraud), the IMF continues to ratchet down on Greece further, insisting that more austerity is needed. Thus, the highly inaccurate economic projections from the IMF have given it more bargaining power to gradually push Greek officials into a corner.

Keep in mind that as the IMF makes the Greek economy worse, it lowers the value of assets planned for the privatization auction.

Thus, the IMF has an incentive to make Greece’s economy even worse because it will enable the Jewish Banking Cartel to snatch up Greek airports, sea ports, utilities companies and other critical assets at fire sale prices. Thereafter, they will hold the Greek people to their own financial terms.

And finally, the social engineering segment of the Jewish Mafia will enter the crime scene to ensure the end of Greek religion, culture, solidarity and heritage. We are now witnessing the rape of Greece by the Jewish Banking Cartel.

Now that Greece has made the fatal decision to accept further assistance by the IMF and EU, it will face a much more severe depression in coming years. After the nation’s most valuable assets are sold, the Greek people will face an indefinite period of economic extortion and social reengineering at the hands of the Jewish Mafia.

As I have discussed in the past, the only solution for Greece is to exit the European Monetary Union, and later the European Union. But because Greek politicians have already been bought off by the bankers, the only way Greece can be saved is by the efforts of the Greek people.

This is also the only viable solution for Italy, Spain and Portugal if in fact the people of these nations wish to restore their nation.

Careful observers are now witnessing the mechanism by which the IMF always functions. Unfortunately, the destruction caused by the IMF certainly is not going to end with Greece unless the people unite and reclaim their nation from the criminals.  Most important, we must all prevent this from ever happening again.

Double Standards?! Who, US?

NOVANEWS

by Kevin Barrett

Here’s my latest interview on Press TV. Scroll down to find links for previous Press TV interviews. -KB

US seeks to dominate world through double standards: Analyst

Press TV has conducted an interview with Kevin Barrett, author and Islamic studies expert, Madison about US double standards in supporting a pledge to hunt down global terrorism, but actually supporting terrorist gangs and working with them to topple independent or sovereign governments. The following is an approximate transcription of the interview.

Press TV: We were discussing the role of the US and its Arab allies in fueling the unrest in Syria. Kofi Annan is in Syria right now and he has also pointed out that the elements that are backing militant gangs in Syria are hindering the hopes for peace.

Syria has time and time again called for the issue of foreign interference to be raised at the UN Security Council to no avail. Why isn’t this issue being brought into more focus as far as the UN goes?

Barrett: There is a double standard at work. It seems the different countries look at these things differently particularly the US, which is trying to dominate the world unilaterally. It is seeking to impose its double standard on the world.

If any other nation were supporting armed forces attacking the US from within the US that would be called terrorism and of course it would be unacceptable.

But when the same thing is happening in Syria and it is in fact the US that is supporting these armed forces attacking the Syrian government, that’s supposedly different. But it isn’t really.

At some point, the world needs to establish a single standard to deal with all these situations.

And in Syria the fact that there are foreign parties supporting these anti-government rebels, is going to have to be dealt with openly and it should be part of the process with Kofi Annan.

Press TV: Regarding the recent Friends of Syria meeting held a few days back, there was a call for imposing a Libya-Style scenario on Syria as far as implementing a no-fly zone, which was vehemently rejected by Russia. Secretary of State Hilary Clinton responded saying Russia will pay a price for it stance on Syria.

Where is this going to head? Do you think the US is banking on this Libya-style scenario to be replicated in Syria or are they going to try other ways to achieve their aims?

Barrett: I don’t think they will be able to impose their so-called no-fly zone on Syria, which really means shooting down planes and bombing the country. It’s an Orwellian sort of doublespeak term that doesn’t mean what it sound like it says.

And the Russians learned their lesson in Libya and Russia does have a much closer relationship with Syria than it had with Libya and I don’t think the Russians are going to be allowing the US and other countries to be attacking Syria openly. So I think that really is off the table, I can’t imagine that the US government is crazy enough to try to risk a war with Russia over Syria where really the US has no vital interests.

This is a war in which I’ve said in other Press TV interviews…

The real force behind the war is the Likud Zionist Party in Israel, which has an agenda to destabilize the Middle East and in particular to break Syria up into a number of different countries based on their various ethnic and religious differences.

This has been a Zionist project for decades and you can see it coming to fruition today as they’ve managed to get the US on board with it and they’re laying waste to the whole region.

CIA, Punjabi Taliban and Urban Guerrilla Warfare in Pakistan

NOVANEWS

As if Pakistan was not going through enough havoc, the country is now facing a severe security threat. This time though, it is not the disruptive north, rather the region of Punjab; considered to be the state’s industrial, agricultural and cultural hub.

by Zaki Khalid

Yesterday, nine young police trainees were brutally killed and their bodies mutilated at a small house for rent in suburban Lahore. They had come from the Khyber Pakhtunkhwa province. What this attack shows is how powerful the intelligence gathering mechanism of these militants has become. It is not easy keeping check of who comes and goes in the crowded streets and alleys today. The terrorists have laid out their network of informers well. And they belong to the notorious Moaviya Group or Momin Brigade of the TTP (Pakistani Taliban).

The group’s leader is Asmatullah Moaviya, a radical heretic mullah from Punjab who pledged his oath of allegiance to Hakeemullah Mehsud, brother of Baitullah Mehsud. Both the Mehsud brothers are long time CIA assets: Baitullah was initially held at Guantanamo Bay and mysteriously released by the US later on citing “medical issues” (we all know what they were trying to hide). The ISI during Panetta’s tenure as CIA chief gave HUMINT and TECHINT to their American counterparts so that drones could take Baitullah down. The CIA kept resisting and ISI officials were pretty sure by then that something smelt bad. However, a few days later the Pakistani spooks provided manufactured reverse intelligence to the CIA and they accidentally killed their own asset.

Hakeemullah is dead or alive, that is yet to be confirmed. News reports also mentioned that Asmatullah Moaviya was arrested by security agencies from Lakki Marwat area. This news too, is disputed and hence needs verification.

Meanwhile, let me get you back on track to what the alarming thing is. An attack of such an improbability and precision in the heart of bustling Lahore has made it clear that Pakistan’s central east zone is being prepared into being a battlefield for urban warfare. Guerrilla warfare is being analyzed by security threat analysts in the ISI and according to others, Pakistan’s Army Chief General Kayani is strongly considering options to revive Civil Defence drills across Pakistan under highly secure and supervised locations. Since a few days, my colleagues at TX and I have been discussing what civilians like us will do to cope with the dangers of an urban guerrilla warfare.

To a great extent, there are exaggerations prevailing in peoples’ speculation that Blackwater is behind all this. From my talks with a Major from the ISI stationed in Lahore, Blackwater a.k.a. Xe LLC a.k.a. ‘Academi‘ does not have any presence in Pakistan anymore. However, this does not mean that the country has been rid of the Virginian Menace: CIA. I was told that there are still a considerable number of CIA personnel in Pakistan but ever since the last months of Gen Pasha’s tenure, they are under strict surveillance. MI6 is dormant but French intelligence is again into adventurism. It was reported by my sources last month that French embassies have been giving clearance to many North African people. Some Moroccan and others from Algeria. German Al Qaeda recruits have already started to increase and all their penetration into Pakistan is via Afghanistan. Indian intelligence RAW has been training TTP militants for well over 5 years now. The Moaviya group is direct CIA with no intermediary.

A close friend and brother in Egypt’s General Intelligence Directorate chipped in to add that Qatar has been recruiting jihadists-for-hire from Libya, Somalia and Algeria. They used them first against Gaddafi, then in Syria and now in Pakistan. France and Qatar’s spy agencies have been collaborating together on this with frequent visits of the DGSE chief to Doha.

Getting back to the issue at hand: The “Punjabi” Taliban, or so they call it. In the troubled Balochistan province, scores of Hazaras especially citizens adhering to Shiite beliefs are being massacred by the day. Their killers are also the Moaviya group and Lashkar-e-Jhangvi al-Aalami. So on the western front we have sectarian killings and on the eastern, urban warfare. Last week, a Pakistan Army camp in Wazirabad near Gujrat city was attacked and soldiers embraced martyrdom. This was the second such attack in Punjab. Previously, four MI officials and a Pakistan Army Major were attacked and martyred near Chakwal city last year in November by the same Moaviya group.

Punjab’s threat level has gone from orange to red. The militants have openly warned of more such attacks in the future especially on intelligence desks around Punjab and police stations and jails. In short, Pakistan in entirety now faces an existentialist threat. Lahore is placed on prime position and next comes Karachi.

What could be a better technique to get Pakistan Army into fighting small pocket wars within Punjab and Sindh so that India waits for the right time to pounce?

The TTP were never affiliated with the Afghan Taliban who are resisting allied forces in Afghanistan. Mullah Omar and his aide Zabeehullah Mujahid have been saying for more than five years now that they do not endorse or support TTP attacks on Pakistanis. That sums it all up. As far as religious extremism goes, Punjab is a hotbed of sectarian militant groups. Some are militant anti-Shiites and others militant anti-Sunnis. All are headed by the same grandmaster i.e. CIA. Weapon supplies are stocked in Khost and especially Kunar. I tweeted about some related developments recently that Special Task Force 373 units were seen meeting with four RAW Majors in Afghanistan at an undisclosed Indian Consulate. This was just a week ago.

With America wanting to destabilize Pakistan before it leaves and turn it into a buffer state, Pakistan’s Strategic Plans Division is formulating a new contigency-based formula for Punjab (details later, perhaps). The military is on one hand dealing with terrorists (local assets for foreign powers) as well as the hyper-sensational Pakistani media, which is more a mouthpiece for the enemy than the country itself. Pakistan’s military establishment is engaged in multi-pronged warfare: counter terrorist and counter psyops.

I leave my readers with this for now. I try to remain formal but it gets hard especially when I see children roaming around my city that might flow with rivers of blood in the coming days. God save us. God save all Pakistanis and every innocent soul in the world from the tyranny of Zion and its Luciferian machinations in the form of CIA, NATO, MOSSAD, “AL QAEDA” et al. Amen to that.

Uri Avnery on Shamir’s Death – What Every Jew Must Know

NOVANEWS

Uri Takes Us into the Belly of the Beast – Fifty Years of Real Israeli History

“Yitzhak Shamir is gone. Another Zionist terrorist is dead.”

by  Jim W Dean, VT Editor

featuring  Uri Avnery

——————————–

[ Editor’s note:  The direction here has more balance than one might suspect, more respect for a fanatic, Shamir was that, and words from one who knew him best, someone who shared the title of “Zionist-Terrorist” long before Israel was more than a dream.  Intro by Jim Dean, article by Uri Avnery, who spins the truth well and this comment by Senior Editor Gordon Duff ]

While corruption in leadership is systemic the world over, and certainly not a modern invention, the Israeli Zionist hard core elite took corruption to a new level.. They fully supported terrorism.

They were actually the victimizers from day one, while wearing the victims’ sheep clothing, and huge numbers of Israelis were just fine with that.

But our contempt in no way should be reserved for them. Our own various political structures and media, most reprehensibly those in the supposedly free Western countries has hidden this well known truth from their citizens for many decades.

Not only do they censor the truth, but they promote the continued lying to the public down to the grammar school level.

They are beneath contempt, except for the public’s cooperation for being a bit too easy to lie to.

Uri Avnery is our VT expert on all things regarding Zionist history be it ideological, political, military or morals. He has provided us in his article below a unique retrospection on the death of former Israeli prime minister and terrorist leader Yitzhak Shamir.  For desert he includes another deeply flawed Israeli leader, Ehud Olmert, as a foil of sorts.

Being a famous former terrorist has always been a huge political resume polisher in Israel. Hard line Zionists, and even the medium variety feel more secure have experienced murderers at the helm.

But what of the bad public relations consequences you ask? There are not any.

You see, those sworn to protect the United States ‘from all enemies, foreign and domestic,‘ …well…they don’t really like that domestic part, because it would include a good batch of them, you know…treason!!

Why? Because our Founding Fathers always warned that the preservation of the American Republic, sometimes referred to as ‘the experiment’, would live or die based on ‘an informed public’.

The Wise Men Knew Where the Attacks Would Come From – And The Have

Intelligence agencies have huge divisions solely tasked to creating disinformation and confusion in targeted countries as part of their offensive operations.

But here in the land of the free, while we have foreign Intel operations being run on us all the time, especially by the Israelis, we also have taxpayer funded government employees who are just as dangerous, making sure that ‘we don’t see it coming’ when they want to steal a little democracy from us. It’s the ole ‘what you don’t know won’t hurt you’ schtick.

You can add to the list both political parties, our media, most educational institutions and even some religious ones. Why? Because they know this is going on and they lie…if even by omission.

What varies among them are the methods used. the degree to which they participate, and what outside motivation and encouragement is required to keep them serving in what I call their ‘adulterated oaths’.

The worst of these work for Israeli Intelligence on the side, and have for a long time. The list goes way up to the top where they are even given a special name, ‘protected entities’.

If you don’t know what that means, don’t worry. All the law enforcement and counter intelligence people do. It’s an open scandal and a big morale problem in counter intelligence.

Uri – the Irgun teen at 14 – 1940

The details are below so I will not leak the gems that Uri has for us here, some from his personal experience.

In closing I will share with you what I can only call an attitude of contempt from these people and entities toward their respective peoples.

They think you are too stupid and naive to deal with realpolitik. They we would just go into a cave and cry all day if we really knew…so we don’t deserve to know.

Yet they fully understand the attraction that most have to the delusion that we have a government ‘of the people’.  They are happy to indulge us and supply free straws to snort that up.

But the crooks on the inside, they can think of nothing more stupid than to put people that naive in charge. They consider us a national security threat. That is the mind game they play on themselves to not feel so bad in deceiving us all.

There are risks in standing up to power – They tried to kill Uri several times.

If you want some respect from these people you have to earn it. How? By busting them and putting their lying, thieving butts in prisons to rot, that’s how.

But what do we actually do instead? We elect them to office. We let them run rigged party conventions, rigged 911 investigations, and refuse to investigate themselves. Imagine that?

We even put them in the Justice Department were then can obstruct justice and block all possible ways of getting to them.

And they are not too worried about us coming up with any new ways to get them…not worried at all. Uri will show us below the Israeli version of the scam, a la Shamir or Olmert.

Those of you that are real angry with me right now for this very straight forward chat, I will close with a very old one liner.

Know thyne enemy.

Two Faces

by Uri Avnery 

Yitzhak Shamir – The Proud and Unrepentant Terrorist

TWO FORMER Prime Ministers of Israel are in the news these days. They represent two of the many faces of Israel. They also raise a universal question: which is preferable – an honest fanatic or a corrupt pragmatist?

 

Yitzhak Shamir died two weeks ago and was buried in the cemetery of the “Great of the Nation” in Jerusalem.

He was 97 years old and had been vegetating for years in a state of dementia. Most Israelis did not know that he was still alive.

When I described him on TV as “the most successful terrorist of the 20th century”, the interviewer raised his eyebrows. But it was an accurate description.

Shamir was not a great thinker. In his teens he joined the right-wing Zionist youth organization of Vladimir Jabotinsky in Poland, and since then he did not change his world-view one iota.

In this respect he was absolutely immovable. He wanted a Jewish state in all of the historical country. Period. No nonsense about Arabs and such.

We both joined the Irgun underground at the same time. I was too young to take part in actual terrorist actions, he, eight years my senior, carried them out.

At the time, the Irgun killed scores of Arab men, women and children in attacks on Arab markets, in retaliation for Arab attacks on Jewish civilians. We defied the policy of “self-restraint” ordered by the Zionist leadership.

Israeli Prime Minister Menachem Begin, circled – Shamir is Second From the Left on the Bottom Row. They Escaped Crimes Against Humanity Trials.

In the summer of 1940 the Irgun split. One of the commanders, Avraham Stern, founded the organization known to the British as the “Stern Gang”. Eventually it was called LEHI, acronym for Fighters for the Freedom of Israel.

 

Avraham Stern – Zionist Terrorist who is Honored to This Day

Stern was a logical person. The aim was to set up a Jewish state in all of Palestine. The enemy was the British Empire. The enemy of my enemy is my friend.

 

Therefore we must cooperate with the Nazis. He sent several emissaries to contact the Germans. Some were intercepted by the British, the others were ignored by the Nazis.

I could not accept this atrocious logic and did not join, though the temptation was there. Shamir did.

He was caught and imprisoned (unlike Stern himself, who was caught and shot on the spot). Within a short time, virtually all the members of the organization were killed or arrested.

The group ceased to exist – until Shamir and a colleague, Eliahu Giladi, broke out. The two acted together and brought LEHI to life again. One day Shamir had Giladi tried and shot.

Giladi was not accused of treason, but, on the contrary – of excessive zeal. He made plans for revolutionary actions, such as killing David Ben-Gurion and the entire Zionist leadership.

Shamir decided that his adventurous nature endangered the organization and that he must be removed. Afterwards Shamir named his daughter Gilada.

[Editors Note: “I was afraid that he had gone completely crazy,” wrote Mr. Shamir, who is 77 years old and was swept from office when his Likud Party lost the 1992 national election. “I knew that I had to take a fateful decision, and I didn’t evade it.”…Shamir, memoirs, 1994]

Many years later I asked him which historical personality he admired most. He answered without hesitation: Lenin. I understood that he admired him because Lenin ruthlessly followed the maxim “the end justifies the means”.

Shamir was one of LEHI’s three leaders. He was responsible for operations and organization, meticulously building a deliberately small group of selected individuals, executing incredibly daring actions.

Lord Moyne – British minister murdered by Shamir’s Irgun

He himself planned every single operation in the greatest detail. The most famous was the assassination of Lord Moyne, the senior British functionary in the Middle East, in Cairo.

He was arrested again when the British shut down Tel Aviv and conducted a house-to-house search.

Shamir was well disguised but could not hide his most obvious characteristic: he was very small, almost a dwarf, with a big, strong head. The soldiers were instructed to arrest every man below a certain height.

This time he was sent to a detention camp in Africa, from which he duly escaped. He reached French Djibouti, was brought by a French warship to Paris where he stayed until Israel came into being.

LEHI never amounted to more than a few hundred members. But it played a major role in driving the British out of this country.

IN ISRAEL, Shamir disappeared from view. For years he worked for the Mossad. It was rumored that his specialty was sending letter bombs. When he resurfaced, he joined the party of his erstwhile competitor, Menachem Begin. He was appointed Knesset chairman.

Once I decided to stage a small demonstration in the Knesset. I wore under my jacket a t-shirt saying “Peace is better than a Greater Israel”. During the plenary session I took the jacket off. After some minutes of shock, an usher asked me politely to see the chairman in his office.

Shamir received me with a big smile and said: “Uri, where would we be if every member did something like that? Now that you have made your point, would you please put your jacket on again?” Which I did, of course.

When Begin made peace with Egypt and even I voted for him, Shamir abstained. After Lebanon War I, when Begin resigned saying “I can’t go on any more”, Shamir took his place.

As prime minister, his most outstanding achievement was to do nothing, except building settlements – quietly and unobtrusively. Under American pressure, he attended the Madrid peace conference, determined not to budge an inch. As he remarked later, he was quite ready to negotiate with the Arabs for any length of time.

Nazi-Zionist Coin of WWII – While British Tommies were dying to reach concentration camps in Germany, Zionist Jews were murdering Tommies in Palestine as a thank you. After the war the Zios claimed, ‘You did not do enough’. In the U.S. the Irgun openly ran fundraising tours which the Roosevelt administration did nothing to stop due to ‘political sensitivities’ of the Jewish community.

He did not dream of making peace, which would have drawn frontiers and barred the way to Greater Israel.

His ideology was summed up by his most famous dictum, alluding to the old adage that the Arabs want to throw the Jews into the sea:

“The Arabs are the same Arabs and the sea is the same sea.”

Another famous statement: “It is permissible to lie for the fatherland.”

Remarkably, this man, who joined the Irgun (like me) in protest against “self-restraint”, exercised self-restraint par excellence when Saddam Hussein rained missiles on Israel during the Gulf War.

Shamir was content to let the Americans do the job.

His other great achievement was preventing Jews from reaching the US. When the Soviet leadership allowed Jews to emigrate, almost all of them proceeded straight to the US. Shamir persuaded the White House to shut the gates, and thus compelled more than a million Russian Jews to come to Israel where they now swell the ranks of the extreme right.

[Editors Note:  Thank God they did not come here. We would have a million more Israeli spies.]

For a short time he was the mentor of the young Binyamin Netanyahu, but then he came to detest him. After Netanyahu made a small tactical concession to the Arabs, he called him “Angel of Destruction”.

One may assume that he was also disgusted by Netanyahu’s penchant for luxury. When not lying for the fatherland, Shamir was straight as a ramrod, living in utmost modesty. There never was – or could be – even the slightest hint of corruption.

Will Olmert beat all of his corruption charges? This past Prime Minister was not a terrorist…just a crook, and proud of it, too.

Which leads us straight to Ehud Olmert.

ONCE upon a time there was a Minister of Education, Zalman Aran, who was known for his dry humor. A party functionary once came up to him and said:

“Ziama, you can congratulate me. I have been acquitted!”

“Strange,” Aran replied, “I have never been acquitted!”

Olmert has been acquitted many times. During his entire career, he has danced from one acquittal to the next.

This week it happened again. After a long trial, in which he was accused on five different counts of corruption, he was acquitted of four.

One concerned his habit of letting himself be invited by several charity organizations to lecture in the US, and letting all of them pay separately for the same first class ticket (using the surplus for his family’s private outings.)

Another count: reporting to the State Comptroller that his collection of expensive pens was worth a tenth of its real value.

The district court decided to acquit him on all counts for lack of proof, except one: that as Minister of Industry he had favored the clients of his close friend, who obliged him by keeping a large amount of cash stashed away in his safe.

Olmert celebrated his partial acquittal as a great victory. The media – the same media which celebrated his indictment when it all started – are taking part in the celebration. He is still awaiting the outcome of an even bigger trial.

The accusation, this time: taking bribes for the building of a huge multi-billion architectural monster in the center of Jerusalem when he was mayor of the city. Everybody expects that he will be acquitted, as usual.

Among the outcries against the Attorney General in the media was the accusation that he, a mere civil servant, had toppled an incumbent Prime Minister on trumped-up charges. Worse, that he had done so just when Olmert was about to make peace with the Palestinians.

Nonsense. In his years in the Prime Minister’s office, during which he initiated two dirty wars (Lebanon War II and Operation “Cast Lead”), he had plenty of time to make peace.

He did Indeed produce a peace plan – but only on the eve of his expected political demise. With peacemakers like this, who needs warmongers?

However, Olmert is already hinting that after his next acquittal he will return to political life.

SHAMIR, THE dead honest fanatic, has many followers. Olmert, the living corrupt pragmatist, has very few.

Netanyahu, their current successor, has the vices of both and the virtues of neither.

Whitewashing Criminal Fraud

NOVANEWS

by Stephen Lendman

 

Wall Street crooks walk away free every time. So do their London counterparts and other corporate bosses.

Crime pays so why not commit it. The only penalty is nasty headlines for a few days and minor slap on the wrist fines or admonishments about promising no repeats. At least not until next week.

Most politicians also get off easy, and not just in America.

In August 2009, former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert was indicted in three corruption cases. They related to Rishon Tours as well as the Talansky and Investment Center affairs. More on them below.

On January 5, 2012, he and 17 others were indicted for allegedly giving or receiving bribes related to various real estate deals.

He was charged with taking bribes worth 1.5 million NISs (Israeli New Shekels).

The so-called Holyland case made headlines. It’s a Jerusalem luxury housing project. Olmert was city mayor at the time. Later he was Israel Land Administration minister.

On January 8, a Haaretz editorial headlined “Holyland corruption case is a fight for Israel’s soul,” saying:

“The Israeli entire public must reject corruption and remove those stained by it from government.”

The Holyland complex “emerge(d) as an extravagant memorial to municipal corruption, riches to entrepreneurs, fringe benefits to elected officials, and kickbacks to go-betweens.”

In other words, it was business as usual for crooked profiteers and complicit politicians. Haaretz called the case “a watershed in the way the public relates to the conduct of government.”

Whether those indicted are convicted or exonerated, “the system….will find it hard to present a defense….”

It’s fundamentally corrupt. It’s rife with bribes, kickbacks, and cronyism. Crimes are committed multiple ways. Everyone involved has both hands in the till. The resulting architecture makes Israel’s skyline “ugly.”

On April 26, 2010, Israel’s Ynet News headlined “Der Spiegel: Israel is a corrupt country,” saying:

Israelis know it. So do Germans. Headlines explain it. Der Spiegel covered it in an article headlined “The land of affairs.” Jerusalem corruption is replicated throughout the country.

At the time, Der Spiegel writer Kristof Schult said Olmert might find himself in prison. So far, he got off nearly scot-free. More on that below.

His article said increasing numbers of Israelis believe their main threat is internal. He didn’t mean bomb-throwing terrorists. Haaretz urged Israeli judges to “reject corruption and remove those stained by it from government.”

Nearly two years after the news broke, indictments were handed down. Besides Olmert, former Jerusalem mayor Uri Lupolianski and former Israel Land Administration (ILA) director Yaakov Efrati face charges.

A key prosecution witness, identified only as “S,” served as middleman in corrupt deals. He told police that “in talks I held with Mayor Olmert, with chairman of the local planning and building committee Lupolianski and with members of the local committee, it was made clear to me that via the ‘give and take’ method, I could get (what) I desired.”

“I want to stress: The hints were from those people to me, not the reverse, because I wouldn’t have dared.”

The deal involved developers getting huge tax breaks, additional building rights, and other benefits worth tens of millions of dirty dollars.

The Holyland Park Corporation and businessman Hillel Charney asked for plea bargain consideration on lesser charges with no indictment. He’s implicated in bribing city officials.

In 1999, he got land in question rezoned for residential use. Originally it was for hotels. He won approval to build apartments. He sold part of it to Holyland Park Corporation (HPC). It’s also a defendant in the case.

Like in America, Israeli corruption runs broad and deep.

From 2003 – 2007, HPC and complicit parties bribed Jerusalem officials. In return they got what they wanted. At the same time, so did others for farmland and other rezoning priorities. Months of investigation put the pieces together.

Olmert was implicated in earlier financial crimes. In 1988, he was involved in forging Likud party campaign donation receipts. Others were convicted. He got off scot-free.

He lives a charmed life. Maybe he pulls the right strings with the right people in the right places.

He faced three earlier corruption charges. They involved Rishon Tours as well as Talansky and Investment Center affairs.

On July 9, he was acquitted on Rishon Tours and Talansky charges. He was convicted only of breach of trust in the Investment Center case.

Talansky accusations forced his resignation as prime minister.

Reasonable doubt got him off. Jerusalem District Court president Mossia Arad ruled:

“The defendant’s claim that he wasn’t aware of it, has its problems, but there wasn’t enough evidence presented to prove that his version of events isn’t reasonable. (T)here were no clear directives or procedures.”

The court accepted Olmert’s argument about disorder in his office as prime minister, but not corruption.

“We arrived at the conclusion that the evidence does not prove beyond reasonable doubt that the defendants chose a course of action that would gain the defendant profits,” said Arad.

“(N)o document was found in which the defendant directed Risby-Raz to collect the extra money. Indeed, there are documents that could point to the defendant’s awareness of surpluses.”

“(T)here was no joint fraud system by the defendant and Rishon Tours. There were no special relations with the Rishon Tours owners, and no proof of a system to produce profits.”

Observers called it one of Israel’s most significant corruption trials. Charges involved events occurring from 2002 – 2006. At the time, Olmert was Jerusalem mayor. Later he was ILA minister.

He was accused of double-billing $92,000. His Rishon Tours account held funds in that amount stolen from public organizations. He allegedly used it for private travel for himself and family members.

He built a relationship with Rishon Tours owner Emanuel Baumelshpiner. Charges alleged he ordered his agency to transfer funds from other customer accounts without their authorization or knowledge.

In the Talansky affair, Olmert was charged with receiving $600,000 from US businessman Morris Talansky from 1993 – 2005. In return, it was alleged he helped him with various business deals. Olmert claimed the funds were for political, not personal, use.

The court held that despite evidence of conflict of interest, none proved he used his office for criminal wrongdoing. Prosecutors failed to prove charges beyond a reasonable doubt, it said. As a result, conviction isn’t warranted.

Olmert was also accused of failing to disclose US businessman Joe Almaliah’s donations to Israel’s state comptroller as well as misleading him about their source.

Again the court ruled that prosecutors failed to make their case.

Olmert was convicted on one minor breach of trust charge. It was for failing to disqualify himself from oversight from various transactions.

Despite considerable evidence, he escaped conviction on multiple counts of fraud. Overall, he dodged a bullet, but he’s not home free yet.

He still faces trial on Holyland charges. As explained above, it’s for allegedly accepting bribes as Jerusalem mayor to facilitate its construction.

On July 10, Haaretz headlined “Verdict shows Olmert was no saint, but trial reflects a desecration of Israeli democracy,” saying:

Talansky charges forced his resignation as prime minister. He left office “shamed and humiliated.” Charges “sealed his political-public coffin.”

He was publicly called a “scoundrel, a liar, a schemer and a thief.” Despite his acquittal, some observers and members of his own party believe he’s guilty “beyond all reasonable doubt.” Exoneration doesn’t prove innocence.

Even conviction only of breach of trust is no “cause for celebration or pride….” Calling his offense a “procedural impropriety” avoids issues of justice.

Holyland bribe charges remain. A key state witness will soon testify. If evidence he presents looks credible, “Olmert can expect another grueling year of process and testimonies.”

If he dodges another bullet, will he attempt a political comeback? Voters will have final say on that score.

A Final Comment

Months before Rishon Tours, Talansky and Investment center charges surfaced, Gideon Levy called Olmert a “hedonistic, spendthrift prime minister, a relatively small-time, corrupt man who, like many others, did not know where to draw the line between public and private money and who – like many of his colleagues….thought that a politician deserves everything….”

He “and his transgressions will be remembered as a footnote in history,” predicted Levy.

He stressed a far graver issue. It involves unequal judicial treatment for Jews and Arabs as well as Israel’s rich and poor.

“Can anyone seriously claim that a wealthy (Jew) armed with a phalanx of high-priced lawyers is consigned to the same legal fate as” any Arab or ordinary Israeli, Levy asked?

Israel’s legal system reveals apartheid justice as well as unequal treatment for rich and poor Jews. Stealing shekels doesn’t rise to that level of criminality. It’s not even discussed in judicial or political circles.

Israel has no profiles of courage able to transform itself into a legitimate, just, democratic nation respecting the rights of everyone. It remains a fundamentally flawed rogue state threatening humanity.

Phony Whistleblower Runs Interference for Assange the “Mossadnik”

NOVANEWS
WIKILEAKS AND ASSANGE, MOSSAD OPERATION GETTING A “BREATH OF LIFE”

Andrew Drake Spins “Bad NSA” to “Good Assange,” Proving Drake Still Doing “Dirtywork”

 by Gordon Duff, Senior Editor

So many had been fooled.  Andrew Drake seemed too good to be true.   But then we look. 

His information is all a decade old, all watered down, bland assertions, old news then it comes.

He is on RT where Julian Assange has become a “non-entity,” eating up time as their media circus master, eating up most of their funds too.

We see now that the Israelis asked Putin to help lob a ‘touche’ round over the American bow.

 

YouTube 

Drake’s performance, the “whistleblower” a decade late and 50 cents short is tearful and heroic.  Then we noticed.  His accusations go nowhere.  In fact, he lacks any substance at all.  Worse things than this are published in Newsweek.

Assange himself admits the whole things is a lie, here from news.com.au:

WIKILEAKS founder Julian Assange concedes there is no current indictment pending against him that could result in his extradition to the US.

But the WikiLeaks founder insists US prosecutors are building a case.
The Australian-born 40-year-old is about to spend his third night holed up in Ecuador’s embassy in London as he awaits a decision on his bid for political asylum.
He is trying to avoid extradition to Sweden over sexual assault allegations, which he says are baseless.
Mr Assange previously claimed there was a secret US indictment against him over his role in publishing thousands of secret US diplomatic cables.

“Previous claims” means he lied.  Why would the US wait to extradite from Sweden when Britain is our NATO ally and Sweden isn’t.  Assange is aligned with the powerful Israel lobby in the US that controls congress and, were he to keep his “pants zipped” at the proper times, would be welcomed among the right wing war mongers who are his strongest supporters here.  As for Drake, this is just more of the same, pure fiction and “grandstanding.”

This was simple theatre and the real clown, pure “center ring entertainment,” at least it is hoped, will be accused rapist Julian Assange, now pretending the Americans are after him.  After who?  Julian what?  We thought he either died or had moved to an estate in Britain where he went on fox hunts with former Nazi sympathizers and posed continually.

Did Mussolini have a grandson, I wonder?  If not a grandson perhaps a “mini-me?”

[Editors Note: So once again we ask the age old Intel analyst first questions. Why now, and who does this benefit? Think about that as you watch this. We are in 2012Everyone has long been aware of all the data gathering, and it has been a zero issue in the Presidential campaigns.

Assange’s Wiki-move blew up in his face when he ran an operation with Israel and his hero Rupert Murdock to use an anti-Imperial America smokescreen to seed help propaganda in the War on Iran build up that Israel was trying to suck the U.S and American military into as dupes and cannon fodder…payback maybe for the Soviet Afghan war.

Do you think Putin’s Russia has less or more surveillance than here? You know it’s more. His government as put 3,00,000 entrepreneurs in prison over the last ten years. It is a country where you can pay a bribe to have your competitions arrested and sent to prison.

Does RT think Americans are going to buy that the Putin regime feels Americans pain over our bad government? The polls have consistently shown that…Congress permanently in the tank and not caring a bit over it. And then we had Bonzo Bush leaving office with the worse ratings in history besides Nixon.

The Russians are putting some cards down on the table for some flank moves they are making and using their media, just like it’s done here. Gordon has more below from the VT archives…Jim W. Dean]

The timing for this is perfect.  Putin just returned from kissing Netanyahu’s behind in Israel, stating “Iran’s nuclear program the greatest danger to the world.”  We know that Putin knows Iran has no nuclear program.

Then, perfectly timed, this bomb, which we will make sure blows up in their faces, the attempt to resurrect Wikileaks through Russia, a weapon against Iran by the powerful Israel lobby in the US helped along by Israel’s new partnership with Putin, replacing the US as their main ally.

Back in 2010, Veterans Today caught Assange (just in time for Chritmas), not just covering for 9/11 and cheerleading for Israel but pushing for war against Iran and the breakup of Pakistan.

Then, in December, CFR Director Zbigniew Brezezinski on NPR with Judy Woodruff accused Assange and Wikileaks of being staged in order to output phony intelligence for an agency.

Ziggy never said Mossad, but we already knew. Every word out of Wikileaks was Israeli propaganda. Here is the interview:

YouTube 

Then, months later, when it turned out that everything Wikileaks did was approved in Tel Aviv first and that the New York Times was working directly with Wikieaks to pick out the “proper material” to help Israel, we had the proof.

Rupert Murdoch – Dead Man Walking

The world had the proof, Assange was part of the Rupert Murdoch spy ring, working for Israel, on the inside, accessing secret info, not through “hacking” but through Mossad spying just as was being done in Britain and across the US.

In America, the flood of Wikileaks info came from AIPAC where former Rand Corp head, Steve Rosen, White House advisor, spilled the beans.

AIPAC was a spy organization and we tracked their material, not to newspapers or spy organizations but to Wikileaks.

It wasn’t that Wikileaks and Assange were actually leaking anything.  They were planting phony leaks, created to promote international war and discord.

Assange was, in fact, along with Murdoch, Israel’s biggest intelligence coup since Jonathan Pollard.

Now he is being recycled and the NSA is helping, giving Andrew Drake to RT, the platform so often used by Israel’s friends, to spin back his long lost credibility.

The biggest thing Israel needs back is Wikileaks and the opportunity to push for a new war, a war with Iran and to put phony intelligence into the system through Assange.

We are watching, on the video above, an intelligence agency setting the stage for war with Iran by trying to build a case against Neocon hero Julian Assange, the beloved friend of Israel by trying to create the phony idea that he is being hunted.

Has Julian Assange Found Religion at the New Putin/Israel altar?

Asssange is a hero of the ultra-right and huge and powerful Israel lobby in Washington.

Nobody is hunting him.

He is the most protected man on earth, money everywhere, friends wherever Israel buys them including most of the US congress.

There hasn’t been a mention of indicting Assange for years.  We could have brought him here at any time.

This is bull.  This is spying.  This is deception and cover.

This is the Mossad and Drake and Assange working for the NSA by playing a very mild case of how “medium bad” the US used to be long ago and how dangerous the toothless right wing war monger Assange is, what a danger he is.

Assange has one assignment, war with Iran, where he started years ago before he was outed as an Israeli agent. Now we have another. Too late boys.

ENDGAME

We have named one gang, Assange the stooge, Murdoch the sponsor, Tony Blair and Bush 43 the shills, Netanyahu holding Putin’s strings for the oligarchs of Moscow, Adleman of Vegas and Koch Brothers, whose failure to put enough mob money behind Mitt to guarantee a world war failed.

The goal is simple.  Take America down and this is the team.  Force Iran to close Hormuz.  Make Putin leader of the Middle East, bleed Turkey and India away from America, have Israel finally show its Soviet colors.

This is one step in the New World Order where we begin to see the players move.

These are the pawns.

—————————————

Addendum, edited and annotated version of Brzeziinski interview on PBS:

ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI: But I think the most serious issues are not those which are getting the headlines right now. Who cares if Berlusconi is described as a clown. Most Italians agree with that. Who cares if Putin is described as an alpha dog? He probably is flattered by it.

The real issue is, who is feeding Wikipedia on this issue — Wiki — Wiki — WikiLeaks on this issue? They’re getting a lot of information which seems trivial, inconsequential, but some of it seems surprisingly pointed. …The very pointed references to Arab leaders could have as their objective undermining their political credibility at home, because this kind of public identification of their hostility towards Iran could actually play against them at home.

Editor’s note:  The use of the term, “pointed” is key.  This indicates two classes of information and also begins building a hypothesis to support “intent.”  If there is “intent” in the leaks, then they are an intelligence operation, not a leak.

It’s, rather, a question of whether WikiLeaks are being manipulated by interested parties that want to either complicate our relationship with other governments or want to undermine some governments, because some of these items that are being emphasized and have surfaced are very pointed.

And I wonder whether, in fact, there aren’t some operations internationally, intelligence services, that are feeding stuff to WikiLeaks, because it is a unique opportunity to embarrass us, to embarrass our position, but also to undermine our relations with particular governments.

Editor’s note: Brzezinsky goes exactly there, indicating his belief that Wikileaks is tied to an intelligence agency.  This is a full and direct challenge to the credibility of wikileaks showing no reservations whatsoever.

For example, leaving aside the personal gossip about Sarkozy or Berlusconi or Putin, the business about the Turks is clearly calculated in terms of its potential impact on disrupting the American-Turkish relationship….the top leaders, Erdogan and Davutoglu and so forth, are using some really, really, very sharp language.

JUDY WOODRUFF: But this is 250 — it’s a quarter-of-a-million documents.

ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI: Precisely.

JUDY WOODRUFF: How easy would it be to seed this to make sure that it was slanted a certain way?

ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI: Seeding — seeding it is very easy.  I have no doubt that WikiLeaks is getting a lot of the stuff from sort of relatively unimportant sources, like the one that perhaps is identified on the air. But it may be getting stuff at the same time from interested intelligence parties who want to manipulate the process and achieve certain very specific objectives.

Editor’s note:  Brzezinski’s assertion is that “chickenfeed,” things off the news, low level “junk” intel is being “seeded” by an intelligence service to serve an agenda with “very specific objectives.”  Can anything be more clear?

STEPHEN HADLEY :  The — what we know or what has been said publicly is it looks like a data dump through a pretty junior-level person. So, in terms of that material, it looks like a data dump. Generally, in Washington, I have had the rule that, if there are two explanations, one is conspiracy and one is incompetence, you ought to go with incompetence. You will be right 90 percent of the time.

Editor’s note:  The Obama administration withdrew the AIPAC spying convictions when it was clear that Stephen Hadley would be put on the stand by the defense.  Hadley’s very close relationship with the defendants in this spy trial brings up a number of interesting questions which are not hard to answer if you read his response above.

ZBIGNIEW BRZEZINSKI: But, Steve, the other foreign intelligence services don’t have to wait for me to make that suggestion.   I think they can think of it themselves, particularly after the first instance.

Nazi troops steal 1000 goats from southern Lebanon

NOVANEWS

A file photo of Israeli soldiers near the Lebanese border

A file photo of Israeli soldiers near the Lebanese border
Israeli military forces have stolen 1000 goats from Shebaa farms in southern Lebanon following their failure to abduct two shepherds.

The incident occurred when at least 20 Israeli soldiers crossed the Lebanese border at Mount Hermon region and infiltrated 500 to 800 meters into the Labanese Shebaa farms in southern Lebanon in order to abduct shepherds Mohammed Qassem Hashem and Ahmed Haidar.

After failing to kidnap the shepherds, the Israeli forces then stole 1000 goats in the area and took them to the Israeli-occupied sections of the Shebaa farms.

The Israeli military frequently violates Lebanon’s airspace, territorial waters and border.

The violations contravene United Nations Security Council Resolution 1701, which ended the Israeli war on Lebanon in 2006.

UN Security Council Resolution 1701 calls on Israel to respect Lebanon’s sovereignty and territorial integrity.
