Jewish leaders to Kerry: Confront Hungary’s rising anti-Semitism

Acute concerns over growth of extremist Jobbik party, violence against Jews, cemetery desecration, widespread anti-Jewish sentiment

Times of Israel

The heads of several major American Jewish groups called on Secretary of State John Kerry on Tuesday to confront Hungarian officials about the “alarming rise of anti-Semitism in Hungary.”

“Given the growth of hatred against Jews and other minorities (particularly the Roma) in Hungary, we urge you to keep the issue of intolerance and discrimination squarely on the US-Hungarian bilateral agenda,” the organization leaders urged. “We also encourage you to raise the matter personally in your direct dealings with Hungarian officials.”

 

The letter was addressed to Kerry and Ambassador Michael Kozak, the State Department’s acting special envoy on anti-Semitism.

The Jewish leaders commended the US State Department for its 2012 Human Rights Report that “identified a number of troubling developments” impacting the 100,000-strong Hungarian Jewish community, the largest in central Europe.

These developments included “the rise of the xenophobic and anti-Semitic Jobbik party, which has called for the creation of a list of Jewish public officials, repeated the historic ‘blood libel’ against Jews, and labeled Jews a ‘national security risk.’”

Jobbik is not a member of the current ruling government in Hungary, but holds 47 seats in the National Assembly, the country’s unicameral 386-seat parliament.

The leaders also noted an “increase in violence against Jewish individuals and institutions”; the desecration of Jewish cemeteries and Holocaust memorials; “the proliferation of anti-Semitic materials in the media, on the Internet, and in the streets”; and “the attempted rehabilitation and glorification of World War II-era figures, who were openly anti-Semitic and pro-fascist.”

The letter was signed by the heads of a broad spectrum of US Jewish religious and political groups, including, among others, Rabbi David Zwiebel of the Orthodox umbrella group Agudath Israel, Rabbi Julie Schonfeld of the Conservative rabbis’ group Rabbinical Assembly and Rabbi David Saperstein of the Reform movement’s Religious Action Center in Washington. They were joined by the Anti-Defamation League, the American Jewish Committee, the Simon Wiesenthal Center, the World Jewish Congress, the women’s group Hadassah, and the heads of umbrella bodies, including Jerry Silverman of the Jewish Federations of North America and Rabbi Steve Gutow of the Jewish Council for Public Affairs.

The letter noted Kerry’s promise at the time of the publication of the State Department human rights report that the US would engage “governments at the highest levels and [push] them to live up to their obligations to do right by their people.”

The letter comes just two days after the leadership of the Hungarian Jewish community’s umbrella federation, the Mazsihisz, resigned over accusations that local Jewish leaders had failed to challenge the country’s Prime Minister Viktor Orban’s statements on anti-Semitism at a World Jewish Congress confab a week earlier.

Dr. Peter Feldmajer, president of the Mazsihisz since 1991, quit Sunday, together with other communal leaders, following a no-confidence motion and several hours of fierce debate at the annual meeting of the group at the Budapest Jewish community headquarters.

Feldmajer was blamed for being too soft on Orban, who condemned anti-Semitism in Hungary in a speech to WJC, but who, critics said, did not go far enough in condemning the far-right Jobbik party in his own government.

An ADL poll in 2012 found that 63% of Hungary’s population held negative views of Jews, compared to 47% in 2009.

Times of Israel

Five Russian warships entered the Mediterranean Sea on Thursday and are scheduled to dock in Limassol, Cyprus.

Russian news sources reported that the ships would bolster the country’s new regional task force. Russia currently has a naval base in Tartous, Syria.

In March, Russian Defense Minister Sergei Shoigu announced that the naval task force was needed in order to protect Russian interests in the region.

“The task force has successfully passed through the Suez Canal and entered the Mediterranean,” Capt. First Rank Roman Martov was quoted as saying in Russian news agency RIA Novosti. “It is the first time in decades that Pacific Fleet warships enter this region.”

The Russian navy maintained a squadron of 30-50 ships in the region from 1967 until 1992 as part of its Cold War with the United States.

According to RIA Novosti, the task force currently includes an anti-submarine ship, a frigate, and rescue tugs. Joining the task force from the Pacific fleet are a destroyer, amphibious warfare ships, and a tanker.

On Sunday, Navy Commander Admiral Viktor Chirkov said that nuclear submarines may be added to the task force in the future.

According to the Russian defense ministry, the command and control agencies for the Mediterranean task force will be based in either Novorossiysk, Russia, or Sevastopol, Ukraine.

IsraHell Hints at New Strikes, Warning Syria Not to Hit Back

NOVANEWS

In a clear warning to Syria to stop the transfer of advanced weapons to Islamic militants in the region, a senior Israeli official signaled on Wednesday that Israel was considering additional military strikes to prevent that from happening and that the Syrian president, Bashar al-Assad, would face crippling consequences if he retaliated.

“Israel is determined to continue to prevent the transfer of advanced weapons to Hezbollah,” the Israeli official said. “The transfer of such weapons to Hezbollah will destabilize and endanger the entire region.”

“If Syrian President Assad reacts by attacking Israel, or tries to strike Israel through his terrorist proxies,” the official said, “he will risk forfeiting his regime, for Israel will retaliate.”

The Israeli official, who had been briefed by high-level officials on Israel’s assessment of the situation in Syria, declined to be identified, citing the need to protect internal Israeli government deliberations. He contacted The New York Times on Wednesday.

The precise motives for Israel’s warning were uncertain: Israel could be seeking to restrain Syria’s behavior to avoid taking further military action, or alerting other countries to another military strike. That would increase the tension in an already fraught situation in Syria, where a civil war has been raging for more than two years.

There could be a secondary audience for the warning, analysts said, in Hezbollah and its primary supporter, Iran. Hezbollah, which is based in Lebanon, has said in recent days it could use weapons supplied by Iran to retaliate for recent Israeli strikes on Syria.

Nearly two weeks ago, Israeli warplanes carried out two strikes in Syria, the first hitting bases of Syria’s elite Republican Guard and storehouses of long-range missiles, in addition to a military research center that American officials have called the country’s main chemical weapons site.

A more limited strike on May 3 at Damascus International Airport was also meant to destroy weapons being sent from Iran to Hezbollah. The Israeli government did not confirm either of the attacks, which followed another earlier this year.

The Syrian government publicly condemned Israel for the assaults, saying it “opened the door to all possibilities.” The Syrian deputy foreign minister, Faisal Mekdad, declared, “We will respond immediately and harshly to any additional attack by Israel.”

Mr. Assad and Hassan Nasrallah, the leader of Hezbollah, have each said in recent days that the Israeli-Syrian border, which has been relatively quiet despite the more than two years of civil war inside Syria, could become a “resistance front,” in response to Israeli attacks.

On Wednesday, mortar shells, fired from across the Syrian border, landed in the Israeli-occupied Golan Heights. The shells landed on Mount Hermon, a popular tourist site, and were the latest in a series of what Israel has generally considered errant fire from internal Syrian fighting.

Israel did not fire back, as it had on several previous occasions, but it closed Mount Hermon to the public for several hours during a Jewish holiday on which hiking in the Golan is popular.

In his comments, the Israeli official said that “Israel has so far refrained from intervening in Syria’s civil war and will maintain this policy as long as Assad refrains from attacking Israel directly or indirectly.”

“Israel,” he said, “will continue its policy of interdicting attempts to strengthen Hezbollah, but will not intercede in the Syrian civil war as long as Assad desists from direct or indirect attacks against Israel.”

Mark Regev, a spokesman for Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu of Israel, declined to discuss the meaning of the Israeli official’s statement. “We’re not going to comment on the story,” he said.

American and Israeli political analysts agree that Israel has little motive to intervene in Syria’s civil war, but that it is deeply concerned about the transfer of advanced weapons, as well as the danger that Mr. Assad’s stockpiles of chemical weapons could be used against it.

Amos Yadlin, Israel’s former military intelligence chief who now directs the Institute for National Security Studies in Tel Aviv, said that the timing of the warning could have been linked to intelligence Israel had received about something it wanted to prevent.

That, he said, could be a Syrian intention to react, albeit belatedly, to the recent airstrikes on its soil, an imminent shipment of weapons to Hezbollah, or signs of action by Syrian proxies in the Golan Heights.

Mr. Yadlin said that, aside from Mr. Assad, Russia could be another intended recipient for the Israeli official’s message. Two of the weapons systems that Israel has identified as game-changing “red line weapons” — SA-17 antiaircraft weapons and Yakhont shore-to-sea missiles — were supplied by the Russians, he added. The convoy that Israeli warplanes struck in January was carrying SA-17 antiaircraft weapons.

A Western diplomatic official who works in the region said that after the recent airstrikes, Israel had sent a similar message to Mr. Assad through back channels — probably Russia — saying it was not attacking his government but would do so if he retaliated. Perhaps, this official said, Jerusalem now wanted to broadcast the message publicly because the real audience is Iran and Hezbollah, whose leaders have been among the loudest threatening responses.

“It’s probably doubling down on the message to make sure it’s known to him and the others,” he said, also on the condition he not be named because of the delicacy of the situation. “Maybe some of the others who are calling on him to respond but also have an interest in him surviving would hear it better from this channel than other channels. Maybe it’s more directed at Iran and Hezbollah than it is at Syria.”

As for whether the timing of the statement indicated an imminent strike, this official said, “I wouldn’t think they would telegraph a punch like that so publicly.”

Pro-Palestinians who resort to anti-semitism and Nazi apologism - as well as Muslims who confuse anti-Zionism with anti-Judaism to such an extent that they try to deny the Jewish roots of their own religion - are IMO (hopefully!) well intentioned idiots who should ideally stay away from public forums lest they taint their entire cause with their stupidity. Fortunately, my experience is that thoughtful and intelligent pro-Palestinians tend to outnumber them by far.

US Dollar Collapse and Japan’s Sham Currency War: The Hidden Agenda Behind Japan’s Kamikaze Quantitative Easing

NOVANEWS
Global Research

 

US$ dollars have been flooding the financial markets ever since Bernanke launched quantitative easing allegedly to turnaround the US economy. These huge amounts of US$ toilet paper are mainly in financial markets (and in central banks) outside of the United States. A huge chunk is represented as reserves in central banks led by China and Japan.

If truth be told, the real value of the US$ would not be more than a dime and I am being really generous here, as even toilet paper has a value.

That the US dollar is still accepted in the financial markets (specifically by central banks) has nothing to do with it being a reserve currency, but rather that the US$ is backed/supported by the armed might and nuclear blackmail of the US Military-Industrial Complex. The nuclear blackmail of Iran is the best example following Iran’s decision to trade her crude in other currencies and gold instead of the US$ toilet paper.

If the United States were not a military threat and a global bully that can blackmail with impunity the oil exporting countries in the Middle East, the global financial system which hinges on the US$ toilet paper would have collapsed a long time ago.

The issue is why has the US$ not collapsed as it should have by now?

When we apply common sense and logic to the state of affairs, the answer is so simple and it is staring at you.

But, you have not been able to see the obvious because the global mass media, specifically the global financial mass media controlled mainly from London and New York, has created a smokescreen to hide the truth from you.

Let’s analyse the situation in a step by step manner, and apply common sense.

1. The US is the world’s biggest debtor. The biggest creditors are China and Japan, followed by the oil exporting countries in the Middle East. With each passing day, the value of the US$ toilet paper is worth less and less. Like I said earlier, even toilet paper has some intrinsic value. It reaches zero value when everyone has to carry a wheelbarrow of US$ to purchase anything.

2. For the US$ toilet paper creditors, they cannot admit the fact that they have been conned by the global Too Big To Fail Banks (TBTFs) acting in concert with the FED and the Bank of England to accept US$ toilet papers. The central bankers of these countries have a reputation to preserve (not that there is in fact any reputation, for their so-called financial credibility is also part of the scam) and the political leaders that relied on them is in a bigger bind. How can the political leaders be so very stupid to trust these central bankers (who have stashed away in foreign tax havens huge US$ toilet papers as a reward for their complicity). This is the current state of affairs in plain English. They are having sleepless nights worrying if and when the citizens would wise up to this biggest con in history i.e. the promotion and acceptance of fiat currencies, the US$ being the ultimate fiat currency.

3. The global financial elites led by the FED know that this state of affairs is to their advantage and they are exploiting it to the hilt! They also know that no country or organisation has the military resources to threaten the US to stop this global ponzi scheme which has been going on since 1945 and intensified since 1971 when President Nixon de-coupled the US$ from gold. The pound sterling is another story but, it is not relevant for the purposes of this analysis.

4. Additionally, and as a result of the above-stated scam, countries were led to believe and to accept the false economic theory that export generated growth (GDP) should be the foundation of economic development, as the United States having limitless US$ toilet paper has the ability and the means to purchase the global exports, it being the largest consumer market in the world. In the result, the world’s factories and their workers, including those in the developed world such as France and Germany worked their butts off to be rewarded with US$ toilet paper whose value is less than the paper and ink that produce it! The financial frolic went on for more than forty years and came to an abrupt and foreseeable end in the 2008 global financial tsunami.

5. When the party ended, the United States was up to her eyeballs in debts as a result of reckless financial speculation in the global derivatives casino and the consumption binge financed by housing mortgages. Debts must be repaid. But, the US has no means to do so. They cannot produce enough goods to earn the revenue to pay the debts because US manufacturing has been outsourced to the developing world – China became the world’s number 1 factory. So, the financial elite appointed helicopter Bernanke to lead the charge for the US and the UK to use the printing press (digital or otherwise) to print more US$ toilet papers to pay off the debt. In economic jargon, this is “monetising the debt”. It is outright fraud, but no one (i.e. central bankers) in his right mind would admit to this fraud as they would be hung from the lamp-posts if the truth is discovered as was the case when the Italian fascist leader Mussolini was hung by the Italian partisans.

6. Initially, central bankers confronted with this situation and having to face a restless populace embarked on a regime of competitive easing/ devaluation of their currencies. But, the price was horrendous. Inflation spiked in all these countries. But, this scheme of things did not work out as planned for the simple reason, the US$ toilet paper continued to be lower as a result of more QE by Bernanke. China realised the danger and adopted other means to overcome this situation, one of which was to enter into bilateral arrangements with her trading partners to finance trade in their respective currencies. Such agreements were entered between China and Japan, members of BRIC, Malaysia etc. This counter-measure was perceived as a threat to the continued dominance of the US$ toilet paper regime. In the result, Obama declared at the urging of the financial elites (he does not have the grey cells to think) a foreign policy shift – the Asia Pivot to prevent a further deterioration of US$ dominance.

7. When Japan entered the agreement with China, her behaviour was deemed unacceptable since Japan was under the nuclear protection of the US. Japan was caught between a rock and a hard place. It was expected that sooner or later the US would apply the squeeze on Japan to behave in a proper manner. Applying geopolitical strategies, the US towing South Korea along provoked North Korea by launching a military exercise which included flying B-2 bombers which are capable of carrying nuclear weapons. North Korea responded in the manner that was expected. Japan was exposed and in like manner reacted by seeking US protection. To muddy the waters and complicate the situation, the US engineered a Idispute between China and Japan over the sovereignty of the Diaoyu Islands. This was followed by the installation of a new regime in Japan by the election of the Prime Minister Shinzo Abe and the appointment of Haruhiko Kuroda as the Governor of the Bank of Japan (BOJ).

8. Now comes the mechanics of US counter-measures in shoring up the artificial dominance/value of the US$ toilet paper. Japan was ordered to do its part as a quid pro quo for being protected by the US’s nuclear umbrella. A new version of the Plaza Accord must be put in place – a “reverse Plaza Accord”.

9. Let me explain. In the 1985 Plaza Accord, the dollar was devalued to reduce the current account deficit and to help the US recover from the recession of the early 1980s. It was a managed devaluation and the exchange value of the Dollar versus the Yen declined by 51 per cent from 1985 to 1987 – reaching ¥151 per US$1 in March 1987. The dollar continued to slide till 1988. The effect of the strengthened Yen depressed Japan’s exports and brought about the expansionary monetary policies that resulted in the infamous asset bubbles of the late 1980s. The G-6 countries then gathered in 1987 in Paris to arrest the slide of the dollar and to manage and stabilise the international currency markets. The end result was the Louvre Accord. In the next 18 months the dollar strengthened to ¥160 per US$1.

10. However, in the current situation, the devaluation of the US$ toilet paper was the result of massive QEs so as to enable US to monetise her debts. However, for US to continue to monetise her debts and have the world’s central banks agreement to continue to hold dollar reserves, the value of the dollar must appreciate, failing which the dollar would collapse, the US defaulting on her debts, as creditors would no longer accept US$ as payment. The trick was to artificially inflate the value of the dollar without arousing any suspicions.

11. In the 1970s, following the de-coupling of the dollar from gold by President Nixon, the dollar would have collapsed in like manner as it was not backed by gold. It became pure fiat money! The trick then was to create an artificial demand for dollar which would in turn raise the value of the currency. This was effected by the proposal of Kissinger to the Arabs that if they would dollarize their oil exports, the US would guarantee their safety and survival even from the threats of Israel. When the Arabs agreed to this arrangement, every country in the world had to buy oil in US$. Countries have to exchange their currencies into US$ to buy oil. This demand for US$ strengthened the currency and prolonged the US fiat money monopoly.

12. However, this option is no longer available presently as oil is now being sold in other currencies besides the US$. The petro-dollar is no longer in dominance. In any event, the continued use of petro-dollars would spike the oil price and this would be inflationary and detrimental to the US economy as well as the world’s economy in the present economic climate – i.e. deep recession. Another means must be used.

13. This is the reason for the sudden “shock and awe” monetary policy of the new Japanese regime of Shinzo Abe and Haruhiko Kuroda. My detractors will accuse me of indulging in conspiracy theories. But, the facts speak for themselves. I had said earlier, that the G-7 countries have collectively attempted to devalue their currencies but, it did not stem the slide of the US$ because Bernanke was increasing the intensity of QE since 2008. And the EU was not willing and or able to adopt a suicide policy of massive QE as Germany was well aware of such a risk having suffered the negative effects of hyperinflation. China would not kow-tow to the US and in fact together with fellow members of BRIC was adopting counter-measures to confront Bernanke’s QE financial weapon. That left only one country who can be compelled to do the US bidding, to commit Hara-kiri to save and or prolong the US$ toilet paper regime – Japan!

14. And so, Japan launched its sudden massive QE and the desired effect is that now the US$ toilet paper has artificially appreciated in value vis-a-vis the Yen and less so with other currencies. This cannot be disputed by my detractors because:

On May 11, the financial elites of G-7 countries explicitly agreed with this kamikaze policy of Japan.

Koichi Hamada has also declared earlier that the target for this policy is to allow the dollar to rise to ¥110 per US$1 and this rise would be managed in a staggered fashion in small increments (step by step approach) thereby controlling the rate of inflation in Japan which would not be allowed to exceed the agreed target rate.

It is suggested that Japan can do this because it can utilise its huge dollar reserves of US$1.2 Trillion to manage the devaluation! According to Alan Ruskin, the global head of Group of 10 foreign-exchange strategy in New York at Deutsche Bank ASG, he said “I think we are opening up the door to look at 105 in the next few months and 110 by the end of the year …” and this surely must be interpreted to mean that Koichi Hamada’s strategy is definitely in play.

In conclusion, it is my view that such “managed artificial appreciation” of the US$ toilet paper while effective in the short run would fail in the long run because the fundamental issues of the US economy have not been addressed and resolved. Only real economic growth can reverse the dollar’s demise.

Seriously, would Bernanke stop further QE when the yen exchange rate reaches ¥110 by the year end? Has not Bernanke declared that QE would continue till 2015? And since Japan has drawn the Red Line at ¥110, can Japan risk further damage to its economy and continue to back-stop US beyond ¥110?

The US$ quadrillion derivative casino is the millstone around the US and the global economy, and as long as this is not resolved, the crisis would only get worse. Like water, after sufficient heat, the boiling point would be reached.

While I cannot forecast the precise date of the implosion, I am of the view that the end is near, sparked by a black swan event and then snowballed to its final devastation.

Max Blumenthal: We uncovered some remarkable things that were unfamiliar to me, because you associate the Islamophobia industry with a small coterie of funders and activists who are very open about their opinions, but we found some more insidious groups who are playing still an effective role in pushing what I consider to be a right-wing, reactionary agenda.

And it started when I saw the interfaith ceremony after the Boston bombings, it was nationally-televised, Barack Obama spoke there, and the Muslim representative was supposed to be Iman Suhaib Webb, who is one of the foremost Islamic religious figures in the country, and he was replaced at the last second with someone named Nasser Wedaddy, who’s a Mauritanian internet activist who has really no … he’s unknown in the Muslim community. He works for a group called the American Islamic Congress. And I’d looked into who they were, got their funders, realized they were funded by people like Sheldon Adelson, the Bradley Foundation — which is a right-wing foundation behind Daniel Pipes and the whole Islamophobia industry that had Zuhdi Jasser, who testified at Peter King’s hearing, on their board — so we did a report for EI about this group that was clearly being put forward to create a wedge in the Muslim community and undermine mainstream Muslim organizing, also to take Palestine off the table.

This is a group that was heavily involved in promoting the Iraq war and received grants from the Bush administration, still receives grants from the Obama administration, and then it rolled into this next investigation into the Human Rights Foundation, which is this kind of shadowy human rights group run by figure named Thor Halvorssen. He’s a Venezuelan oligarch, he’s the son of an oligarchic family heavily-connected to the Venezuelan anti-Chavez opposition.

Actually I went … I didn’t know but I went to college with him at the University of Pennsylvania. He was a right-wing activist there, ran the conservative paper which published all kinds of borderline racist, anti-feminist, anti-gay articles, continued conservative activism after college and then rolled it into this Human Rights Foundation, which he’s been using to whitewash the Venezuelan opposition, to whitewash all sorts of neo-conservative figures and himself, by bringing legitimate human rights defenders together with neo-conservatives, with right-wing radical libertarians like PayPal founder Peter Thiel, who openly … he says he opposes democracy.

And so the Norwegian press calls it the washing machine. But it’s co-sponsored by the Norwegian government, it’s co-sponsored by Amnesty International, and what we did at EI was to investigate its funders. We found that it shares the same funding network as the Islamophobia industry, as the American Islamic Congress; that Nasser Weddady from the American Islamic Congress was being thrown out, junketed out, to Norway along with Ahmed Benchemsi who’s the co-founder with Weddady of Free Arabs, which says that it was sponsored by the American Islamic Congress.

So there they are, having this human rights extravaganza, that Thor Halvorssen calls “the Davos of human rights” — no one knows that he was a long-time right wing activist, no one knows what his agenda is, and the Norwegian government seems to think that it’s sort of just this benign event designed to connect human rights defenders around the world, when it’s really anything but that. It’s partly about regime change, it’s partly about whitewashing sordid figures who are representing the oligarchic class in Venezuela. And it’s also, just generally speaking, about the right-wing neo-conservatives and libertarians co-opting the human rights cause, and gaining control of it.

One of the things they’re going to do when they gain control of it is gradually force Palestine off the table. And a lot of the people who participated in this conference seem pretty comfortable with that.

EI: Max, talk a little bit more about what these investigations tell us about the structure and influence of these types of organizations that fund the worldwide Islamophobia industry.

MB: There are definitely less than ten foundations who are at the core of this Islamophobia industry. And what we found in our investigation, in this two-part investigation, is maybe less than five. And there are really less than twenty key Islamophobic figures, and they’ve managed to have a massive impact on American culture, and on Europe, which is having a much harder time assimilating Muslim immigrants partly because they just don’t have an immigrant culture, they don’t have an immigrant tradition like the United States.

And so in Norway — I mean Oslo is the site of Anders Breivik, the far-right Islamophobic terrorist’s murderous rampage. He attacked Oslo’s main government building, and he attacked a youth camp run by the governing labor party because he blamed these people — he called them “cultural Marxists,” or “multiculturalists,” and he blamed multiculturalism for destroying Europe, for letting Muslim immigrants in. By the way, this is the same rhetoric we heard from conservative campus organizers like Thor Halvorssen.

And what Breivik left is a 1,500-page manifesto outlining his influences. And it’s just basically a compendium of the writings of all the figures produced by the Islamophobia industry, who are funded by the Bradley Foundation, who are funded by the Donor’s Capital Fund, and these are the two — two of the main funders of the Human Rights Foundation, which is behind the Oslo Freedom Forum.

So we found that this network stretches further beyond anything we imagined before, and it’s gained the cooperation of the Norwegian government — which suffered these attacks from an Islamophobic terrorist. So we thought that this was shocking. So Ali, the publisher of EI, Ali Abunimah, called the Norwegian government. The foreign ministry was appearing at this conference, conferring legitimacy on it, and they dismissed us. Amnesty International was called and they dismissed us too.

So they really can’t say that they didn’t know. That what we’ve done here with this investigation is for the first time revealed — the Norwegian press hasn’t been able to do this after years of investigation — revealed the funders of Thor Halvorssen and the Human Rights Foundation, and shown their connection not just to the international Islamophobia industry, but to the figures who radicalized Anders Breivik.

And I really think that this is a huge scandal that is just beginning to unfold.

EI: Max, what has been the reaction so far to this expose to the Oslo Freedom Forum and the figures behind it.

MB: These are people who are really experienced — the people who put on the Oslo Freedom Forum — are very experienced in PR, in publicity, in using social media. They’re very powerful, they have a vast network, and their response has been pathetic. It’s been almost nothing. A series of insults directed at me and Ali Abunimah, and really nothing else, because they are unable to challenge a single fact that we’ve reported. And this two-part investigation spans almost 9,000 words. We just relied on solid facts.

And I think that slowly but surely the Norwegian press is starting to pick up on it. Klassekompen, which is the major left-wing daily in Oslo has covered our reporting, and they grilled Thor Halvorssen about it. And his response was, well, I’ll take money from anyone as long as they give me the money unconditionally. But ironically, he’s attacked people in the past — like Danny Glover, for example, for taking funding for two films he had in development from the Venezuelan government.

So it’s hypocrisy on his part, and I think what he really wants to do, and what the American Islamic Congress wants to do, and what Free Arabs wants to do is duck and cover. And hope that they’re just powerful enough and their funders are reliable enough that they could weather the storm. While they might be right, we’re going to continue to expose these people, and just let the public judge.

Finally, in the case of the Oslo Freedom Forum, the Norwegian public really should have a right to have a say, because they’re paying for this. They’re paying for this guy’s operation. The Norwegian government is kicking in lots of money, over $100,000 a year, for him to put on this whitewashing festival. So it’s really up to them to have a say.

And it’s up to the American public, because the State Department is kicking in hundreds of thousands of dollars in grants to the American Islamic Congress — a group that promoted the war on Iraq, to do things that we don’t even understand. Nobody knows what they’re doing. They have an office in Tunis, and they have an office in Cairo, and we don’t know what they’re doing there, and that’s our tax money.

On-going hunger strike in The Hague to support imprisoned asylum seekers in The Netherlands

The Hague – Activists on their second day of hunger strike have been supporting imprisoned asylum seekers in the Netherlands who officially started the strike on 1 May 2013, protesting against a dysfunctional asylum Dutch policy.

Around 20 activists were gathered today at Plein in The Hague city centre to hold a hunger strike that has started yesterday morning at 10.00 on a rainy day.

Jan Willem Hordijk, a spoke-person of the peaceful sit-in, is a student at Ede University and member of ‘Kritische Studenten Utrecht’ and ‘Deportation Resistance Group’. “Hunger strikes have a strong impact on the public and our strike is also a solidarity statement to support the thousands refugees who have been unjustly imprisoned in Holland”, he stated today.

 

The protest though is not only for those imprisoned but also to thousands refugees who live ‘trapped’ in The Netherlands on the streets, without documents, without money, without access to services.

According to the latest statistics of the ministry of Justice, around 100,000 people live illegally in the Netherlands, 45,000 people of this group have an asylum background. Around 10,000 voluntarily return to their country of origin, because they often end up living on the streets.

Allawy, an Iraqi citizen, is a refugee and asylum seeker in The Netherlands since 2007 when he arrived to the country. “I stayed for the first three years in an asylum centre in Alkmaar, then I was thrown on the streets due to the negative judgment of my application. Since then I lived with the help of churches and friends.”

Allawy is one of the many  ‘homeless’ refugees. Every year around 6.000 asylum seekers, whose applications have been denied at the last appeal, live on the streets. Many undocumented refugees get the residency though, others obtain a Refugee Residency Permit, others have children with Dutch nationality thus can stay, and others receive a legal residency due to medical issues.

The Dutch policy on asylum has seen many developments and changes since 1998, when the principle of personal responsibility was enacted. In case asylum seekers were difficult to be deported, they were put on the streets with an order to organize their own return to their home country.

However, refugees face many hurdles in ‘organizing their return’ while living on the streets and with no access to basic social services. Returning is not possible for many of them because their country of origins will not accept them back; examples are Ethiopia, China, Mauretania, Yemen, Mali, and Guinea, which in only some cases allow this measure.

As a result, rejections of asylum applications increased and the number of asylum applicants drastically decreased from about 47.000 a year before 1999 to 14.000 in 2011 – EU and UN data revealed.

In 2011 the Dutch Prime Minister Mark Rutte claimed at a cabinet meeting in The Hague that: “The asylum policy will become more selective and more restrictive”.

Human Rights Watch and the EU commissioner Cecilia Malmström expressed concerns many times regarding the tougher and tougher Dutch immigration and asylum policy. The Netherlands adopts an “integration test” only with immigrants from specific countries who want to join their family members or spouses. Citizens from the European Union (EU), the European Economic Area (EEA), Switzerland, Australia, Canada, Japan, New Zealand, South Korea, and the US are exempted from this test and from any financial requirements to be met.

On 17th of January 2013 the Russian asylum seeker Aleksandr Domatov committed suicide in the detention Centre of Rotterdam Airport. The SP Parliament Member Sharon Gesthuizen strongly questioned the effectiveness of the Dutch asylum policy, nonetheless its inhumanity.

The Netherlands represents today one of the strictest European countries in terms of asylum and immigration policy and is holding the European record for detaining non-documented refugees.

15-year-old girl learns the truth about the holohoax, submits a report and gets an A

NOVANEWS
Written by Martin Hill

Jazzy

A 15-year-old girl from Southern California who attends a public high school tells the story of how she recently became aware of questions concerning the holocaust. After hearing the establishment’s version of the ‘shoah’ in her history class for weeks along with persistent rumors that Obamacare included provisions for microchipping all Americans, she was very upset at all the frightening and traumatizing details. But then she had an encounter which led her to question what she had been taught, and decided to conduct her own investigation.

Upon completion of her research, she decided to submit a report for a school project in an elective class she was taking for extra credit. She titled it ‘Holohoax,’ and got an A on the report! Unfortunately for the regime, the widely accepted version of the ‘holocaust’ which has been passed down for generations and constantly promoted through Hollywood propaganda films is not enough to brainwash the youth, who are increasingly thinking for themselves, outside the box.

Here is Jazzy’s report as well as a brief video introduction.

 

 

Holohoax

A lie known worldwide, spreading to clueless people and creating disaster everywhere, has caused so many German lives to be spitefully taken. The “Holocaust”, an alleged story of millions of Jews being tortured in concentration camps, has been proven time and time again to be inaccurate, For the acclaimed number of murdered Jews to be true is impossible, proven so not only by logic, but also the fact that the “survivors” of these evens have been known to and even admitted to being paid to lie about it. This in itself should be proof enough of this act of misleading propaganda being false, but there is indeed more evidence.

One reason to believe that the Holocaust is a lie is that the Jews claimed to have been murdered in gas chambers, groups as a time. However, no evidence of such occurrences has been shown or documented. According to scientists who were assigned to study the bodies of the victims of World War 2, “Most of them died from typhus epidemics. Most of the rest of them died from starvation and lack of medical supply care resulting from allied bombing raids against food and medical supply lines. (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=holohoax) The Jews show pictures of hair and clothing of women and children, claiming that they were used for soap and rugs after their owners being stripped of them and brutally killed. However, the truth lies in the fact that “The Germans were against typhus, which was the real reason for shaving heads, fumigating buildings, and cremating corpses.” (http://www.urbandictionary.com/define.php?term=holohoax) Also, heads were shaved and people were gathered top be treated not with lethal gases in order to commit genocide, but with repellant, to stop the epidemic of head lice spreading throughout the camps.

Another thing that contradicts the lies of faulty “survivors” is that the number of Jews said to be killed in the camps was inaccurately stated. Six million Jews were supposedly killed in the Holocaust, when not even such an amount existed in Europe entirely, let alone Germany. “In 1939, there were nearly 15,700,000 Jews in the world. After the Second World War that number had risen to over 18,000,000 Jews. What this means is that of the 15,000,000 original Jews on the planet, 6,000,000 were gassed, leaving only some 9,000,000-plus. Then, the world Jewish population rebounded and doubled to over 18,000,000 in less than nine years – an astronomical feat, which astounded biologists and baby doctors everywhere!” (http://exposing-the-holocaust-hoax-archive.blogspot.com/2009/09/fun-facts-holohoax-for-dummies.html) Not only were the Jews not murdered, but were give a choice. “For that we must go back to one Ilea Ehrenburg,* chief Soviet propagandist during the Second World War and later on to die in Israel, who coined the mythic number on Dec. 22, 1944 – BEFORE tens of thousands of Jewish internees, given the choice of staying to be “liberated” by the Communists or going with their German captors, did not hesitate to choose the latter option!”

(http://exposing-the-holocaust-hoaxarchive.blogspot.com/2009/09/fun-facts-holohoax-for-dummies.html)

Thus proving that the Jewish population was not forced to concentration camps to be scalped and gassed.

Not only do we have visible proof of the holocaust being a lie, but also some very trustworthy witness: The American Red Cross. The Red Cross was asked to do an investigation and search of the camps and corpses, and make accurate reports on their findings. “Says the Report: ‘In the chaotic condition of Germany after the invasion during the final months of the war, the camps received no food supplies at all and starvation claimed an increasing number of victims. Itself alarmed by this situation, the German Government at last informed the ICRC on February 1st, 1945 … In March 1945, discussions between the President of the ICRC and General of the S.S. Kaltenbrunner gave even more decisive results. Relief could henceforth be distributed by the ICRC, and one delegate was authorized to stay in each camp …’ (Vol. III, p. 83).”

(http://www.ihr.org/books/harwood/dsmrd01.html) In reading this, one may conclude that the Germans did not intentionally kill the Jews, but strove to maintain lives. Many of the allegations against the Germans made by Jews involved gas chambers, which they claimed to be stripped, shaved, and gathered into for a mass killing. However, in order for a gas chamber to exist on a premise, there must be airtight doors and high chimneys, neither of which was found at the former “death camps.” Also, there is no proof of the gassed Jews except for allegations made by hired phony witnesses. According to the Red Cross, “Though six million Jews supposedly died in the gas chambers, not one body has ever been autopsied and found to have died of gas poisoning. We have been shown piles of bodies from World War II, but most of these persons died of typhus or starvation or Allied bombings and a great many of those were murdered Germans – the equivalent of ten football fields should be packed full of gassed bodies to present as evidence, yet not one body has ever been discovered.” (http://www.biblebelievers.org.au/holohoax.htm) If this is not proof enough, what else is needed? What excuse can be made in retort?

This is not to say that the Holocaust did not take place. It is only to prove that it did not happen as it was told according to the Jews. Not only in the camps, but all over the world, people died; suffered from starvation, typhus and bombing raids in World War 2. Lastly, without being given the evidence that it did happen as it is told, we are shown clues that the effects on Europe of World War 2 was much different; not a story that would benefit the Jews, giving them compensation each month for some thing that was simply a hyperbole.
