Federal Judge To Vets Sick From Chemical Weapons Testing: Get In Line

NOVANEWS
Thousands of U.S. military veterans exposed to chemical weapons such as mustard gas and lewisite as part of the military’s secret weapons testing programs may be entitled to updated information from the government about the health hazards they may face, but a federal judge ruled on Wednesday that veterans won’t be able to receive government-funded health care from providers outside the Department of Veterans Affairs system.
In Oakland, Calif., Chief U.S. District Judge Claudia Wilken ruled this week that although the VA is struggling to keep up with all of the physical and mental issues facing veterans today, the government is immune from lawsuits that would require it to pay private medical bills. The veterans “have not shown that the care is inadequate or that they are unable to address any inadequacies through the (VA) system,” Wilken said. Eugene Illovsky is a lawyer for the plaintiffs, which included Vietnam Veterans of America, Swords to Plowshares, other organizations and individual veterans. He said, “The VA system is a rationed system,” and that “we’re going to try to keep fighting on the issue as best we can.” It is not yet known whether the groups will appeal Wilken’s ruling. The U.S. first began testing the potential health effects of chemical weapons on soldiers during World War I. The program expanded during World War II to include more than 60,000 veterans. However, the Defense Department and VA have long refused to share the findings.During the Cold War, the testing expanded to include psychiatric drugs such as LSD, in addition to chemical and biological substances. 
The Pentagon says it stopped testing chemical weapons on live subjects in 1975 and that all participants consented to the program, but government officials have acknowledged in recent years that they did not provide full information to the subjects about the chemicals or their possible effects. Illovsky applauded Wilken’s ruling that “the Army has an ongoing duty … to provide test subjects with newly acquired information that may affect their well-being.” Exposure to many “contaminants of concern” can cause serious medical conditions such as cancer and may result in death. In a post for Veterans Today from 2010, veteranRobert O’Dowd, who served in the 1st, 3rd and 4th Marine Aircraft wings during the 1960s and slept in a radium-226-contaminated workspace, wrote that many veterans wanted information about contaminants because they want to “connect the dots of serious illness” and share the findings with their medical care provider. Dowd also took issue with the military’s claims that the veterans voluntarily participated in the chemical programs. “No one in their right mind would voluntarily live and work on a Superfund site,” he wrote. “For the most part, veterans are not provided the choice of military assignments.”

The Arab Spring, Clash of Civilizations et al–Cui Bono?

divideandconquer

MUSLIMS AND CHRISTIANS OF THE MIDDLE-EAST, HEED MY WORDS…

You have been victims of a divide-and-conquer strategy that has completely demoralized your people, created strife and tension and disunity which has successfully pitted Shia against Sunni, Muslim against Christian, Kurdish against their neighbors, and vice-versa on all previous groups mentioned, all benefitting the furtherance of “The jewish Utopia.” http://www.thetruthseeker.co.uk/?p=70583

It is zionism/israel/zOGs-of-USA-UK-Etc., that are MANIPULATING, FINANCING, RADICALIZING, and COORDINATING the proxies known as “the rebels” in Syria, as they did in Libya; however, there is one very big difference between what they did in Libya, to what they are doing in Syria:

THE WORLD NOW KNOWS WHO IS BEHIND “the rebels.”

Once the veneer had been lifted-off of the intended obfuscation/lie that the “Arab Spring” happened all on its own, and “the Libyan people revolted” and “the Syrian people revolted” and on and on it went, the people affected PERSONALLY by all of this evil began to seriously soul-search and question all that they were told previously about who is right and who is wrong and who is doing what to whom for whatever reason(s), and then discovered the ugly truth(s), first said by a few who were ignored, the world may have been able to prevent so much catastrophe if only “the people” affected by the subterfuge and treason by the “usual-suspects” had only believed the truths sopken by these few. As one commentator stated–“This has become known as the Arab Spring. Unfortunately, like all their previous struggles, there is a poisonous snake in the background, which covertly is directing and orchestrating this Arab Spring to reap its fruits for itself.” 

I tire of repeating myself as what I am saying in this essay I, and a growing number of others, have repeated literally hundreds of times personally in-writing, but it is necessary because of the importance of what is being repeated, and for the fact that obviously the information has not reached enough people, and those individuals and groups with the power and gravitas/influence to get started motivating people to speak-out and help change what is happening to OUR planet, not just what is happening to people in other nations, or with other religions.

It is becoming more and more known that there are very serious allegations that the Saudi “royals” are really crypto-jews installed by the zionist-controlled British after WW1. Other evidenced allegations say Ataturk was a donmeh jew who facilitated the destruction of The Ottoman Empire, which absolutely had to happen to be the catalyst of the physical-national “founding” of israel, because that land was part of the western boundary of The Ottoman Empire, known as Palestine, as if anyone needed to be reminded of that. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Palestine It also must be remembered that SUBTERFUGE is THE GREATEST TOOL employed against humanity, because with subterfuge, people never can truly know who is “the good guy,” who is “the bad guy,” what is true, what is false, if a movement legitimate or not, and on and on.

Now, having said all of that, people need evidence and proofs to share with others, and to provide a basis for the greater-understanding of why things have happened, and are happening, to the people of the world as they are:

http://www.terrorism-illuminati.com/blog/2002-iraqi-intel-reported-wahhabis-are-jewish-origin#.UfTWMonD8dV

“The U.S. Department of Defense has released translations of a number of Iraqi intelligence documents dating from Saddam’s rule. One, a General Military Intelligence Directorate report from September 2002, entitled “The Emergence of Wahhabism and its Historical Roots”, shows the Iraqi government was aware of the nefarious purposes of the Wahhabis of Saudi Arabia, often known as Salafis, in serving Western interests to undermine Islam.”

“…D. Mustafa Turan wrote, in The Donmeh Jews, that Muhammad ibn Abdul Wahhab was a descendant of a family of Donmeh Jews from Turkey. The Donmeh were descendants of followers of the infamous false-messiah of Judaism, Shabbetai Zevi, who shocked the Jewish world in 1666 by converting to Islam. Viewing it as a sacred mystery, Zevi’s followers imitated his conversion to Islam, though secretly keeping to their Kabbalistic doctrines. In Europe, the Shabbeteans were eventually led a century later by Jacob Frank, claiming to be a reincarnation of Zevi. And, according to Rabbi Antelman in To Eliminate the Opiate, to them belonged the Rothschilds who had a hand in the founding of the Bavarian Illuminati. The Donmeh community of Turkey were concentrated in the city of Salonika, which became a hotbed of Masonic activity, and from which the Young Turk movement evolved, which aided in the collapse of the Muslim empire of the Ottoman Turks. There is evidence that
 Ataturk himself, the founder of the modern Turkish state, was of Donmeh origin as well.

Turan maintains that Abdul Wahhab’s grandfather, Sulayman was actually Shulman, having belonged to the Jewish community of Bursa in Turkey. From there he settled in Damascus, where he feigned Islam, but was apparently expelled for practicing sorcery. He then fled to Egypt and he again faced condemnation, so made his way he to the Hijaz, where he got married and fathered Abdul Wahhab. According to the report, the same is claimed in The Donmeh Jews and the Origin of the Saudi Wahabis, Rifat Salim Kabar.

The notion of the Saudi family being of Jewish heritage has been published by Mohammad Sakher, who, it is claimed, was ordered killed by the regime for his revelations. The report relates a similar account, but from different sources. According The Wahabi Movement/The Truth and Roots, by Abdul Wahhab Ibrahim Al-Shammari, for example, ibn Saud is actually descended from Mordechai bin Ibrahim bin Mushi, a Jewish merchant from Basra. Apparently, when he was approached by members from the Arabian tribe of Aniza, then claimed to be one of them, and traveled with them to Najd and his name became Markhan bin Ibrahim bin Musa.”

http://aangirfan.blogspot.com/2011/11/jewish-control-of-saudi-arabia.html

“…In the mid-18th century, Hempher made contact with Wahhab in order to set up the Wahhabi sect.
Reportedly, the purpose of the Wahhabi sect was to bring about an Arab revolt against the Ottomans and pave the way for a Jewish state in Palestine.
Hempher’s memoirs are recounted by the Ottoman writer Ayyub Sabri Pasha in his 1888 work, ‘The Beginning and Spreading of Wahhabism.’…”

http://www.radioislam.org/ataturk/jewish.htm

“ZICHRON YAAKOV — There were two questions I wanted to ask, I said over the phone to Batya Keinan, spokeswoman for Israeli president Ezer Weizman, who was about to leave the next day, Monday, Jan. 24, on the first visit ever made to Turkey by a Jewish chief of state. One was whether Mr. Weizman would be taking part in an official ceremony commemorating Kemal Ataturk. Ms. Kenan checked the president’s itinerary, according to which he and his wife would lay a wreath on Ataturk’s grave the morning of their arrival, and asked what my second question was.

“Does President Weizman know that Ataturk had Jewish ancestors and was taught Hebrew prayers as a boy?”

“Of course, of course,” she answered as unsurprisedly as if I had inquired whether the president was aware that Ataturk was Turkey’s national hero…”

NOW, in-light of all of this information, what about “The Young Turks” and “The Armenian Genocide?” That was blamed on MUSLIMS who were TURKS, as we all know, but WHO BENEFITED FROM THIS MASSACRE AND SHAME THAT THIS MASSACRE RIGHTFULLY SHOULD BRING? Again…SUBTERFUGE/DECEPTION is the game that these creatures play so well because anyone would do something well if they had MILLENNIA to hone the craft.

http://rense.com/general64/genoc.htm

“The plans of the 1915-23 Armenian Genocide, where a million and half Armenians perished in a barbaric way in their ancestral lands in modern Turkey, actually were drawn up and were in place by the year 1910 or 1912. There is the book “Inner Folds of the Ottoman Revolution” written by Mevlan Zadeh Rifat in Turkish and published in 1929, the author, a pro-sultan Turk, claims that the “Armenian genocide was decided in August 1910 and October 1911, by a Young Turk committee composed entirely of displaced Balkan Jews in the format of a syncretist Jewish-Muslim sect which included Talaat, Enver, Behaeddin Shakir, Jemal, and Nizam posting as Muslims. It met in the Rothschild-funded Grand Orient loge/hotel of Salonika.” Syncretism means a combination of different forms of belief or practice; masonism fits that description. As the masons started the 1897 revolution in France with the cry “liberty, fraternity, equality,” Young Turks used the same slogan in
their revolution of 1908….”

For ANYONE who wants to find reasons to refute any of the above, please include in your rebuttal WHY THE ACTIONS OF THE PEOPLE/FAMILIES LISTED ABOVE HAVE ONLY BENEFITED israel AND HAVE PAVED-THE-WAY FOR THE CATASTROPHE THAT WE SEE HAVING ALREADY OCCURRED TO OUR PLANET. It must also be noted that Saudi Arabia and The Emirate states are not known for their generosity to the Palestinians, but are very willing to do business with the nation most responsible for the policies against Muslims and Christians in Palestine, and elsewhere, for that matter, israel: http://www.presstv.ir/detail/2013/07/27/315771/s-arabia-israel-army-sign-arms-deal/

So, does anyone have a good explanation for why this would be happening: “Israeli Radio reported that Saudi Arabia signed a 50-million-dollar deal with Israeli army to supply the foreign-backed militants with old Israeli military equipment and arms.  The reports added that the weapons include different kinds of anti-tank
missiles, military vehicles, artillery equipment, and night vision devices.”

This article was published in 2010, and exposed israel and Saudi Arabia doing covert deals, and I believe it is important enough to be remembered: “Israel Air Force aircraft dropped off large quantities of military gear at a Saudi Arabian military base a week ago, in preparation for a potential attack on Iran, a number of Iranian and Israeli news outlets have reported.

The unconfirmed report, first published by the semi-official Iranian news agency Fars and the Islam Times Web site, claimed that on June 18 and 19, Israeli helicopters unloaded military equipment and built a base just over 8 km. outside the northwestern city of Tabuk, the closest Saudi city to Israel, located just south of Jordan. All civilian flights into and out of the city were said to have been canceled during the Israeli drop-off, and passengers were reportedly compensated by the Saudi authorities and accommodated in nearby hotels.

The claim follows a report two weeks ago in the London Times Magazine that Saudi Arabia had given Israel permission to fly through a narrow corridor of airspace in northern Saudi Arabia so as to shorten the flight time required for Israeli jets to reach Iran.” http://www.jpost.com/Middle-East/Is-Israel-arming-in-Saudi-Arabia

Is THIS, ladies and gentlemen, the work of people and administration who have the best interests of the Muslims and Christians of the Middle-East in-mind, or the actions of pupets of and to the zionist cabal that has used people pretending to be what they are not as a strategy throughout history?  REMEMBER, IT IS ALWAYS ABOUT DECEPTION BECAUSE AS LONG AS THE PEOPLE ARE IGNORANT OF WHAT IS REALLY HAPPENING, THE GOAL WILL BE REACHED AND THE “CLOCK” WILL BE RUN-DOWN DUE TO INTENTIONAL DISTRACTIONS PUT IN-PLACE TO WASTE TIME AND RESOURCES CHASING “GHOSTS.”

If you believed that the plotting-and-scheming by “Muslim”-controlled nation of Saudi Arabia could not get any worse, here is more:  ”Saudi political activist, known as Mujtahidd, has revealed that Al Saud government has helped Egyptian defense minister with one billion dollars to topple former president Mohamed Morsi.” Mujtahid who has gathered lots of attention for his tweeter campaign against Saudi government, said in his latest tweets that Commander-in-Chief of Egyptian armed forces General Abdel Fattah al-Sisi who is also country’s defense minister, received a one billion dollar aid from Saudi Arabia for removing Morsi from power on July 3.”

This was the essay that provided the motivation for me to write this essay.  I am not in any way, shape, or form, a supporter of Morsi or the zionist-proxy “Muslim Brotherhood,” but I could not ignore the apparent reality that Saudi Arabia was intimately involved in the tumult-and-chaos that we all now see taking-place in Egypt,and that does NOTHING more than further destabilize and weaken that nation, all for the benefit of only player in this “The Grand Chessboard.”

I have spoken a great deal about “By Way of Deception, Thou Shalt Do War” which is mossad’s motto, so allow me to give you a piece of evidence that is quite startling in the reality that this is admitted POLICY of those who are making war upon various peoples and nations across our planet: http://whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICLES/deception.html ”Our motto is: ‘By way of deception, thou shalt do war.’”

http://www.globalresearch.ca/the-provocateur-state/67

“…Back in 2002, following the trauma of 9-11, Secretary of Defense Donald H. Rumsfeld predicted there would be more terrorist attacks against the American people and civilization at large. How could he be so sure of that? Perhaps because these attacks would be instigated on the order of the Honorable Mr. Rumsfeld. According to Los Angeles Times military analyst William Arkin, writing Oct. 27, 2002, Rumsfeld set out to create a secret army, “a super-Intelligence Support Activity” network that would “bring together CIA and military covert action, information warfare, intelligence, and cover and deception,” to stir the pot of spiraling global violence.

According to a classified document prepared for Rumsfeld by his Defense Science Board, the new organization–the “Proactive, Preemptive Operations Group (P2OG)”–would actually carry out secret missions designed to provoke terrorist groups into committing violent acts. The P2OG, a 100-member, so-called “counter-terrorist” organization with a $100-million-a-year budget, would ostensibly target “terrorist leaders,” but according to P2OG documents procured by Arkin, would in fact carry out missions designed to “stimulate reactions” among “terrorist groups”–which, according to the Defense Secretary’s logic, would subsequently expose them to “counter-attack” by the good guys. In other words, the plan is to execute secret military operations (assassinations, sabotage, “deception”) which would intentionally result in terrorist attacks on innocent people, including Americans–essentially, to “combat terrorism” by causing
 it!

This notion is currently being applied to the problem of the Iraqi “insurgency,” it seems….”

Unfortunately, it appears that the Kurds are the next target of “the usual-suspects” in the game of subterfuge after the disastrous defeat of the FSA and their fellow proxies of israel/zionist-cabal by the SAA in recent months. “The head of Turkey’s main Kurdish party has welcomed contacts between the Ankara government and Syria’s Kurds, saying it could step up pressure on Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and help change the course of the civil war, Turkish intelligence officers met in Istanbul last week with Saleh Muslim, head of Syria’s Democratic Union Party (PYD), a Kurdish group whose militias have been fighting for control of parts of Syria’s north near the Turkish border.” http://au.news.yahoo.com/world/a/-/world/18209869/kurds-could-help-shift-course-of-war-in-syria/

If the above was not clear enough how this game works, there is more: “It won’t just affect Turkish-Kurdish relations but also the course of events in Syria by creating pressure on the regime,” he said. “Kurds can be effective in Syria, and we need to increase support for them. Western countries, including the United States, should establish proper ties with Syria’s Kurds.” Turkey is one of the strongest backers of the rebels seeking to topple Assad in a war that has claimed more than 100,000 lives since March, 2011. Syria’s ethnic Kurdish minority has been alternately battling Assad’s forces and the Islamist-dominated rebels for control of parts of the north.”
In order to create MORE instability, mistrust, and confusion, a couple of days ago on July 30, 2013, a car bomb killed Kurdish Syrian politican Isa Huso. What is important to note is that he was a vocal opponent of Assad, but the Kurds of Syria did not lay the blame on the Syrian government for the assassination, and this possible plan to pull the Kurds into the fight fully against Assad has apparently completely backfired: “Isa Huso was a member of the Supreme Kurdish Council, aimed at bringing together Syrian Kurdish groups, and an opponent of President Bashar al-Assad. Syria’s main Kurdish militia later issued a call to arms to all Kurds to fight jihadists operating in the north.” “He (Huso) had reportedly been imprisoned several times under Mr Assad’s rule for campaigning against human rights abuses…”
http://www.defence.pk/forums/middle-east-africa/268030-kurdish-politician-syria-assasinated-jihadists.html#ixzz2afXs2XxU

If my words are not enough, then please allow the words of CHRISTIAN Greek Orthodox Archbishop Hanna to be the game-changer: “…those who bear arms against the Syrian people and the Syrian Army – regardless of their names and affiliations – are mere pawns that serve Israel and its project to divide and control the Arab region.” http://www.globalresearch.ca/archbishop-atallah-hanna-those-who-bear-arms-against-syria-serve-israel/5344217

Finally, as for anyone who says that it is “anti-Semitic” to expose the plots, schemes, subterfuge, treason, crimes-against-humanity, and all of the other evil committed by the zionist-cabal/israel/various zOG’s across the world, all that I have to say is this: THE TRICK NO LONGER WORKS BECAUSE PEOPLE NOW KNOW THAT IT WAS ALWAYS NOTHING MORE THAN A SHIELD BY WHICH THE cabal, QUITE SUCCESSFULLY FOR DECADES, USED TO PROTECT THEMSELVES FROM EXPOSURE AND PROSECTION FOR ALL OF THE EVIL THAT HAS TAKEN-PLACE TO GET HUMANITY TO THE CATASTROPHE THAT WE ALL SEE BEFORE US: “Anti-Semitism is a trick we always use.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jUGVPBO9_cA&sns=tw

I can go on and on and this essay would quite literally become a book, but my point is made. The people of this planet are very quickly, apparently, realizing the very deep level of deception that has been employed against them to muddle-their-minds and manipulate their feelings, actions, and beliefs, and thankfully because of word spreading in Arab nations, and other across the world, NOW, FINALLY, people are putting all of the pieces together and reaching conclusions that may very well change the course upon our planet and the human-race have been manipulated and deceived into accepting.

Like in the iconic film from the 80′s that opened-up millions of people’s eyes to serious inconsistencies with the world around them, “They Live”, the people of Syria, Arab nations, zOG-controlled “West”, and other areas, are figuratively putting-on-the-sunglasses and seeing the manipulation for what it has ALWAYS BEEN.

“The moment of revelation”: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QVgl1HOxpj8
For those who are unaware of information regarding israel being intimately involved in 911, please do not take-off those sunglasses just yet…
The discussion that led to the essay of “Israel Did 911, All the Proof in the World” and a very large portion of unabridged information that went to create THE essay on the subject:http://theinfounderground.com/smf/index.php?topic=5367.0 The essay, “israel Did 911, All the Proof in the World”: http://ehpg.wordpress.com/israel-did-911/ Must-see video on the issue that simplifies it: Dr. Alan Sabrosky lays-out the case that israel did 911, AND THE MILITARY KNOWS IT https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NUbTe50UUgM and his interview on PressTVhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EPLU4N7gmY4
Let us, please, never forget what “Bibi” Netanyahu said when asked about 911: http://whatreallyhappened.com/WRHARTICLES/fiveisraelis.html ”IT’S VERY GOOD!…WELL NOT GOOD, BUT IT WILL GENERATE IMMEDIATE SYMPATHY FOR israel.”

If “they” did it on 911, what is stopping “the usual-suspects” from orchestrating and carrying-out ANOTHER massive psy-op on the world, just like 911, except this time, blamed on Iran? Let’s all listen to the words of “Patrick Clawson (ex-World Bank, ex-IMF, and now Director of the strongly pro-Israel Washington Institute for Near East Studies) questioned about what would should happen if negotiations with Tehran fail, his response was to openly advocate a false flag event to spark a war with Iran.” http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M84l19H68mk &http://consciouslifenews.com/israel-lobbyist-patrick-clawson-calls-covert-means-against-iranians-pearl-harbor-style-provoke-war-video/1138271/

As long as people are sharing information that they find with others, and begin using their critical-thinking skills and asking hard questions of those in positions of authority over them, the deception that has been the greatest trick-and-trap used against humanity will no longer have its evil hold on the masses, and in-turn, will be the catalyst for real discussions and change to take place in the hearts and minds of humanity.

Assad says sure he will defeat Syrian Zio-NATO Rat’s

NOVANEWS

syrianrats

news.yahoo.com

Syrian President Bashar al-Assad said on Thursday he was confident of victory against rebels in a 28-month-old civil war that has killed more than 100,000 people and sent nearly two million fleeing abroad.

Insurgents have seized large swathes of territory, but Assad’s forces have staged a counter-offensive in recent weeks, pushing them back from around the capital Damascus and retaking several towns near the border with Lebanon.

“If we were not sure that we were going to win in Syria, we would not have the ability to resist and the ability to continue fighting for more than two years against the enemy,” state news agency SANA quoted Assad as saying.

Assad has framed the revolt against four decades of his family’s rule as a foreign-backed conspiracy fought by Islamist “terrorists”. When pro-democracy protests started in March 2011, a military crackdown eventually led to an armed insurrection.

In a statement published in the official army magazine to mark the 68th anniversary of the Syrian army’s creation, Assad said soldiers had shown “courage in the face of terrorism… and the fiercest barbaric war in modern history”.

State television said Assad visited the town of Daraya, southwest of Damascus, on Thursday to meet members of the security forces.

A picture posted on the presidency’s Facebook page showed Assad, in a suit, shaking hand with a soldier in army fatigues and a helmet. Behind them was a scene of war; wires hanging from electricity pylons near an apartment block damaged by an explosion. No civilians could be seen.

The army targeted Daraya with artillery after rebels moved into the area last year. The army has since been able to retake parts of the town but at the expense of widespread material damage and many civilian casualties, according to residents.

U.N. investigators say Assad’s forces have carried out war crimes including unlawful killing, torture, sexual violence, indiscriminate attacks and pillaging in what appears to be a state-directed policy. They say rebels have also committed war crimes, including executions, but on a lesser scale.

The struggle in Syria has become markedly sectarian, broadly pitting majority Sunni Muslim rebels against Assad’s minority Alawite sect, which is an offshoot of Shi’ite Islam.

Assad has relied on Alawite-led army units and security forces from the start, but has turned increasingly to loyalist militia armed and funded by Damascus to fight the rebels.

He has also received solid support from Shi’ite regional powerhouse Iran, Lebanon’s Hezbollah movement and longtime ally Russia, while his fragmented foes have received little military aid from their Western backers, wary of the growing presence of hardline Islamist groups, some of which are linked to al Qaeda.

Muscatatuck Urban Training Center (MUTC) is a 1,000 acre urban training facility located near Butlerville, Indiana. MUTC is used to train civilian first responders, Foreign Service Institute,[1] joint civilian/military response operations, and military urban warfare.
 

By Avalon

Tonight at 8:00 PM EST, YouTube researcher Dahboo7 will be featured on Intellihub with Shepard Ambellas at UnboundRadio.com. Dahboo7 will be talking about the escape of more than 1,000 inmates from a prison near Benghazi in Libya and Al Qaeda Militants from Abu Ghraib. These stories are virtually unreported in mainstream corporate media.

The significance of these coordinated escapes cannot be underestimated. Many of these prisoners are Al Qaeda Militants from Abu Ghraib, and with the recent administration by the Obama administration that they are supporting Al Qaeda, the obvious conclusion one can draw from this escape is that it was not an escape at all – they were allowed to escape to fight in Syria against Assad forces.

Moreover, recent videos depict Al Qaeda Militants using the FGM-148 JAVELIN, a highly advanced U.S. Ground–to–Air Missile technology manufactured by Raytheon and Lockheed Martin

In a recent ArmyTechnology.com article, Javelin Portable Anti-Tank Missile, United States of America, the Javelin is described as:

Javelin is a portable anti-tank weapon, supplied by Raytheon / Lockheed Martin Javelin joint venture. It is shoulder-fired and can also be installed on tracked, wheeled or amphibious vehicles.

In 1989, the US Army awarded a contract for the development of Javelin as a replacement for the M47 Dragon anti-tank missile. The Javelin joint venture was formed by Texas Instruments (now Raytheon Missile Systems) of Dallas, Texas and Lockheed Martin Electronics and Missiles (now Missiles and Fire Control), of Orlando, Florida.

Raytheon is responsible for the command launch unit (CLU), missile guidance electronic unit, system software and system engineering management. Lockheed Martin is responsible for the missile seeker, missile engineering and assembly.

Javelin entered full-rate production in 1994 and the systems were first deployed in June 1996 by the US Army at Fort Benning, Georgia.

[…]

The Javelin JV received a $176m contract in December 2009 from the UK Ministry of Defence for over 1,300 Javelin missile rounds and related engineering support. The delivery of the missiles began in 2010 and will carry on through 2012.

The US Army awarded a $309m contract to the Javelin JV in August 2010 to produce Javelin missile-firing systems for infantry troops. The first Javelin missile was fired from the Common Remote Operations Weapon Station II (CROWS II) mounted on a Stryker IFV in December 2010.

Qatar has also requested for the FMS of 500 Javelin guided missiles in March 2013, according to the Defense Security Cooperation Agency.

Could there be more to this story that is absent from the MSM? Coincidentally, a Massive Nuclear Terror Attack Drill is commencing in Indiana from August 1 to 17, 2013 Simulating A Nuclear Explosion in Columbus Ohio.

These are some of the topics being discussed tonight at 8:00pm EST on the Intellihub broadcast with Shepard Ambellas on UnboundRadio.Dahboo7 and Shepard will also be discussing the recent news involving theCIA and Geoengineering. Detailed in a ridiculous article posted Wednesday, July 17, 2013 at 3:00 by MotherJones.com by Dana Liebelson and Chris Mooney titled, CIA Backs $630,000 Scientific Study on Controlling Global Climate these two wannabe ‘journalists’ start their article with ‘Conspiracy theorists, rejoice!’ Google: Foundation for National Progress George Soros

Briefly, the CIA and Geoengineering news is echoed at theindependent.uk.co and at FoxNews.com – but the MotherJones.com article craftily dismisses the significance of this news in their article, which states:

The Central Intelligence Agency is funding a scientific study that will investigate whether humans could use geoengineering to alter Earth’s environment and stop climate change. The National Academy of Sciences (NAS) will run the 21-month project, which is the first NAS geoengineering study financially supported by an intelligence agency. With the spooks’ money, scientists will study how humans might influence weather patterns, assess the potential dangers of messing with the climate, and investigate possible national security implications of geoengineering attempts.

The total cost of the project is $630,000, which NAS is splitting with the CIA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, and NASA. The NAS website says that “the US intelligence community” is funding the project, and William Kearney, a spokesman for NAS, told Mother Jones that phrase refers to the CIA. Edward Price, a spokesman for the CIA, refused to confirm the agency’s role in the study, but said, “It’s natural that on a subject like climate change the Agency would work with scientists to better understand the phenomenon and its implications on national security.” The CIA reportedly closed its research center on climate change and national security last year, after GOP members of Congress argued that the CIA shouldn’t be looking at climate change.

The Examiner.com posted an in–depth analysis on July 21, 2013 by Teri Webster in their article CIA linked to chemtrails, decades of dangerous experiments – suggested reading for MotherJones.com readers.

Indiana at center of national terror response training exercise

By Jake Miller 22 hours ago

Thousands of members of the armed forces including members of the Indiana National Guard are participating in mass disaster training in Jennings County.

Exercise Vibrant Response is in full effect at the Muscatatuck training camp and Camp Atterbury in Johnson County.

More than 5,000 members of the military and civilians from across the country are taking part in the two-week, large-scale disaster response exercise. The scenario is a nuclear terrorist attack in Columbus, Ohio—and the backdrop is as close to the real thing as it gets.

Zio-Nazi chief rabbi slammed for racial slur

NOVANEWS

Times of Israel

David Lau, the recently elected chief Ashkenazi rabbi of Israel, was broadly condemned for a racist comment about basketball players at the Maccabiah Games.

Exhorting his haredi Orthodox constituents to devote their time to learning Torah rather than watching basketball, Lau said on Tuesday, “Why do you care about whether the ‘kushim’ who get paid in Tel Aviv beat the ‘kushim’ who get paid in Greece?” 

Kushim is the equivelent of ‘nigger’ in Israeli slang.

The remarks were first reported by a phone news service for haredim, Hakol Haharedi, and subsequently picked up by major Israeli newspapers.

According to The Jerusalem Post, Knesset Education and Sports Committee Chairman Amram Mitzna said it was “very unfortunate that rabbis who are supposed to guide the way ethically fail time and time again by making racist statements.”

Lau, who was elected last week as chief rabbi, canceled a planned vacation abroad after the remarks were published.

Member of Neturei Karta charged with offering to spy for Iran

NOVANEWS

Haaretz

A Jerusalem resident belonging to the Naturei Karta ultra-Orthodox group has been charged with offering to spy for Iran, it was revealed after a gag order lifted on Thursday.

The man, aged 46, met with Iranian representatives at the Iranian embassy in Berlin in January 2011 and offered his services as a spy against Israel. He has been charged with making contact with a foreign agent and with intent to commit treason.

The accused, whose name has not been released, met with three Iranian representatives at the embassy and reportedly told them that he was opposed to the existence of the state of Israel. He also said he wanted to see the Israeli government replaced with a “government of goyim.”

He reportedly said during interrogation by the Shin Bet security service that his motives were hatred of Israel and the desire for monetary reward.

According to the indictment, the Iranians told the Israeli man at the end of the meeting that they would convey his offer to more senior officials. An Iranian who called himself “Hajj Baba” gave the accused an email address, and instructed him to enter the email account, where a message from them would await him. In addition, he instructed the suspect to be in telephone contact with him through the embassy’s phone number.

On his return to Israel, the accused continued to maintain contact with the Iranians. He checked the mailbox several times from an internet cafe in Jerusalem, and called the Iranian embassy in Berlin twice from public phone booths in the capital.

It appears from the indictment that he was unable to reestablish contact.

The suspect reportedly criticized Iran during his meeting at the Berlin embassy for its inability to protect its own people against Israeli assassins. Asked whether he was not ashamed to criticize Iran while requesting political asylum, the man responded that he did not want political asylum. He also said that he was prepared to kill Zionists.

The accused was arrested two weeks ago, but details of the case were not released for publication under a gag order. The order was lifted Thursday, though the man’s identity remained under seal.

His detention was extended by the Jerusalem Magistrate’s Court on Thursday morning.

Attorney Nava Ezra-Rahmani, representing the Israel police, told the court that the evidence against the accused was based on his confession, images on his mobile phone and a note he had received from the Iranians. Other evidence included his plane tickets, his passport and the email mailbox via which he maintained contact with the Iranians.

Judge Yigal Marzel ordered the accused held until further notice. An additional hearing will be held next Monday. “I am satisfied that there is a sufficient evidentiary basis,” the judge said.

Appearing in the accused’s defense, attorney Yair Nahurai said that “the indictment charges him with initiating the contact, but it’s worth noting that the events in question occurred two-and-a-half years ago. In other words, he himself broke off the contact. Additionally, no damage was done and he has not been accused of espionage – only contact with a foreign agent and the intention of spying.”

Naturei Karta is an offshoot of Agudat Yisrael that was established in Jerusalem in 1938. It opposes Zionism and calls for the dismantling of the state of Israel, based on the belief that Jews are forbidden from having a sovereign state before the coming of the messiah.

XKeyscore: NSA tool collects ‘nearly everything a user does on the internet

NOVANEWS

• XKeyscore gives ‘widest-reaching’ collection of online data
• NSA analysts require no prior authorization for searches
• Sweeps up emails, social media activity and browsing history
• NSA’s XKeyscore program – read one of the presentations

XKeyscore map

One presentation claims the XKeyscore program covers ‘nearly everything a typical user does on the internet’

A top secret National Security Agency program allows analysts to search with no prior authorization through vast databases containing emails, online chats and the browsing histories of millions of individuals, according to documents provided by whistleblower Edward Snowden.

The NSA boasts in training materials that the program, called XKeyscore, is its “widest-reaching” system for developing intelligence from the internet.

The latest revelations will add to the intense public and congressional debate around the extent of NSA surveillance programs. They come as senior intelligence officials testify to the Senate judiciary committee on Wednesday, releasing classified documents in response to the Guardian’s earlier stories on bulk collection of phone records and Fisasurveillance court oversight.

The files shed light on one of Snowden’s most controversial statements, made in his first video interview published by the Guardian on June 10.

“I, sitting at my desk,” said Snowden, could “wiretap anyone, from you or your accountant, to a federal judge or even the president, if I had a personal email”.

US officials vehemently denied this specific claim. Mike Rogers, the Republican chairman of the House intelligence committee, said of Snowden’s assertion: “He’s lying. It’s impossible for him to do what he was saying he could do.”

But training materials for XKeyscore detail how analysts can use it and other systems to mine enormous agency databases by filling in a simple on-screen form giving only a broad justification for the search. The request is not reviewed by a court or any NSA personnel before it is processed.

XKeyscore, the documents boast, is the NSA’s “widest reaching” system developing intelligence from computer networks – what the agency calls Digital Network Intelligence (DNI). One presentation claims the program covers “nearly everything a typical user does on the internet”, including the content of emails, websites visited and searches, as well as theirmetadata.

Analysts can also use XKeyscore and other NSA systems to obtain ongoing “real-time” interception of an individual’s internet activity.

Under US law, the NSA is required to obtain an individualized Fisawarrant only if the target of their surveillance is a ‘US person’, though no such warrant is required for intercepting the communications of Americans with foreign targets. But XKeyscore provides the technological capability, if not the legal authority, to target even US persons for extensive electronic surveillance without a warrant provided that some identifying information, such as their email or IP address, is known to the analyst.

One training slide illustrates the digital activity constantly being collected by XKeyscore and the analyst’s ability to query the databases at any time.

KS1 

The purpose of XKeyscore is to allow analysts to search the metadata as well as the content of emails and other internet activity, such as browser history, even when there is no known email account (a “selector” in NSAparlance) associated with the individual being targeted.

Analysts can also search by name, telephone number, IP address, keywords, the language in which the internet activity was conducted or the type of browser used.

One document notes that this is because “strong selection [search by email address] itself gives us only a very limited capability” because “a large amount of time spent on the web is performing actions that are anonymous.”

The NSA documents assert that by 2008, 300 terrorists had been captured using intelligence from XKeyscore.

Analysts are warned that searching the full database for content will yield too many results to sift through. Instead they are advised to use themetadata also stored in the databases to narrow down what to review.

A slide entitled “plug-ins” in a December 2012 document describes the various fields of information that can be searched. It includes “every email address seen in a session by both username and domain”, “every phone number seen in a session (eg address book entries or signature block)” and user activity – “the webmail and chat activity to include username, buddylist, machine specific cookies etc”.

Email monitoring

In a second Guardian interview in June, Snowden elaborated on his statement about being able to read any individual’s email if he had their email address. He said the claim was based in part on the email search capabilities of XKeyscore, which Snowden says he was authorized to use while working as a Booz Allen contractor for the NSA.

One top-secret document describes how the program “searches within bodies of emails, webpages and documents”, including the “To, From, CC, BCC lines” and the ‘Contact Us’ pages on websites”.

To search for emails, an analyst using XKS enters the individual’s email address into a simple online search form, along with the “justification” for the search and the time period for which the emails are sought.

KS2 

KS3edit2 

The analyst then selects which of those returned emails they want to read by opening them in NSA reading software.

The system is similar to the way in which NSA analysts generally can intercept the communications of anyone they select, including, as one NSA document put it, “communications that transit the United States and communications that terminate in the United States”.

One document, a top secret 2010 guide describing the training received by NSA analysts for general surveillance under the Fisa Amendments Act of 2008, explains that analysts can begin surveillance on anyone by clicking a few simple pull-down menus designed to provide both legal and targeting justifications. Once options on the pull-down menus are selected, their target is marked for electronic surveillance and the analyst is able to review the content of their communications:

KS4 

Chats, browsing history and other internet activity

Beyond emails, the XKeyscore system allows analysts to monitor a virtually unlimited array of other internet activities, including those within social media.

An NSA tool called DNI Presenter, used to read the content of stored emails, also enables an analyst using XKeyscore to read the content of Facebook chats or private messages.

KS55edit 

An analyst can monitor such Facebook chats by entering the Facebook user name and a date range into a simple search screen.

KS6 

Analysts can search for internet browsing activities using a wide range of information, including search terms entered by the user or the websites viewed.

KS7 

As one slide indicates, the ability to search HTTP activity by keyword permits the analyst access to what the NSA calls “nearly everything a typical user does on the internet”.

KS8 

The XKeyscore program also allows an analyst to learn the IP addresses of every person who visits any website the analyst specifies.

KS9 

The quantity of communications accessible through programs such as XKeyscore is staggeringly large. One NSA report from 2007 estimated that there were 850bn “call events” collected and stored in the NSA databases, and close to 150bn internet records. Each day, the document says, 1-2bn records were added.

William Binney, a former NSA mathematician, said last year that the agency had “assembled on the order of 20tn transactions about US citizens with other US citizens”, an estimate, he said, that “only was involving phone calls and emails”. A 2010 Washington Post article reported that “every day, collection systems at the [NSA] intercept and store 1.7bn emails, phone calls and other type of communications.”

The XKeyscore system is continuously collecting so much internet data that it can be stored only for short periods of time. Content remains on the system for only three to five days, while metadata is stored for 30 days. One document explains: “At some sites, the amount of data we receive per day (20+ terabytes) can only be stored for as little as 24 hours.”

To solve this problem, the NSA has created a multi-tiered system that allows analysts to store “interesting” content in other databases, such as one named Pinwale which can store material for up to five years.

It is the databases of XKeyscore, one document shows, that now contain the greatest amount of communications data collected by the NSA.

KS10 

In 2012, there were at least 41 billion total records collected and stored in XKeyscore for a single 30-day period.

KS11Legal v technical restrictions

While the Fisa Amendments Act of 2008 requires an individualized warrant for the targeting of US persons, NSA analysts are permitted to intercept the communications of such individuals without a warrant if they are in contact with one of the NSA’s foreign targets.

The ACLU’s deputy legal director, Jameel Jaffer, told the Guardian last month that national security officials expressly said that a primary purpose of the new law was to enable them to collect large amounts of Americans’ communications without individualized warrants.

“The government doesn’t need to ‘target’ Americans in order to collect huge volumes of their communications,” said Jaffer. “The government inevitably sweeps up the communications of many Americans” when targeting foreign nationals for surveillance.

An example is provided by one XKeyscore document showing an NSAtarget in Tehran communicating with people in Frankfurt, Amsterdam and New York.

KS12 

In recent years, the NSA has attempted to segregate exclusively domestic US communications in separate databases. But even NSA documents acknowledge that such efforts are imperfect, as even purely domestic communications can travel on foreign systems, and NSA tools are sometimes unable to identify the national origins of communications.

Moreover, all communications between Americans and someone on foreign soil are included in the same databases as foreign-to-foreign communications, making them readily searchable without warrants.

Some searches conducted by NSA analysts are periodically reviewed by their supervisors within the NSA. “It’s very rare to be questioned on our searches,” Snowden told the Guardian in June, “and even when we are, it’s usually along the lines of: ‘let’s bulk up the justification’.”

In a letter this week to senator Ron Wyden, director of national intelligence James Clapper acknowledged that NSA analysts have exceeded even legal limits as interpreted by the NSA in domestic surveillance.

Acknowledging what he called “a number of compliance problems”, Clapper attributed them to “human error” or “highly sophisticated technology issues” rather than “bad faith”.

However, Wyden said on the Senate floor on Tuesday: “These violations are more serious than those stated by the intelligence community, and are troubling.”

In a statement to the Guardian, the NSA said: “NSA’s activities are focused and specifically deployed against – and only against – legitimate foreign intelligence targets in response to requirements that our leaders need for information necessary to protect our nation and its interests.

“XKeyscore is used as a part of NSA’s lawful foreign signals intelligence collection system.

“Allegations of widespread, unchecked analyst access to NSA collection data are simply not true. Access to XKeyscore, as well as all of NSA’s analytic tools, is limited to only those personnel who require access for their assigned tasks … In addition, there are multiple technical, manual and supervisory checks and balances within the system to prevent deliberate misuse from occurring.”

“Every search by an NSA analyst is fully auditable, to ensure that they are proper and within the law.

“These types of programs allow us to collect the information that enables us to perform our missions successfully – to defend the nation and to protect US and allied troops abroad.”

IsraHell to require psychological testing for acquiring a gun license

NOVANEWS

rabbiguncontrol

ed note–we can just see the questionaire–

Q–you believe in the Torah, yes?

A-Yes

Q You believe that the Jews are God’s chosen people, yes?

A. Yes

Q. You believe in all that business about leaving nothing alive that breatheth, as outlined in the Torah, yes?

A. Yes.

Q. Therefore, in accordance with Jewish law, you will use your firearm judiciously, meaning that you will kill non-jews with it in order to purify the Jewish state as God commanded, whether they are men, women or children, just like Baruch Goldstein did when he entered a mosque in the West Bank and shot to death nearly 40 Arabs, yes?

A. Yes.

Q. Gun permit approved. Congratulations.

Haaretz

The Public Security Ministry plans to make psychological testing a prerequisite for obtaining a gun permit, not merely a medical-history form signed by a doctor.

Under the plan, new legislation would not be necessary; rather, the guidelines would be added to existing regulations followed by the ministry’s Firearm Licensing Department. The ministry is working with the Health Ministry on the plan.

Under the program, every licensed gun holder must undergo a psychological test, whose results would remain valid for three or six years. It is not yet clear if the exam’s costs, about NIS 500 per person, would be paid by the gun holders or the security firms that employ them. The Public Security Ministry also plans an exam with a psychiatrist for anyone who does not pass the psychological exam.

“There are many examples of people carrying out shootings or committing suicide, and then it’s discovered after the fact that the doctor missed one of the stipulations on the forms,” said Public Security Minister Yitzhak Aharonovitch during a meeting of the Knesset Interior and Environment Committee. “All those who carry weapons will be subject to this, and I hope we get it done as soon as possible.”

The Public Security Ministry cites shooting incidents using licensed firearms, including suicides. This includes the shooting rampage by Itamar Alon at a bank in Be’er Sheva last May. That gun was licensed privately, not through a security firm.

Public Security Ministry officials have also said security employees will no longer be allowed to bring firearms home from work starting on August 27, before the next school year. The new plan will also require security firms to provide safes at workplaces for weapons not needing to be carried at any given time, though there will be exceptions letting certain employees take their weapons home.

The IsraHell bank that opens its doors to everyone – except Arabs

NOVANEWS

A startling conversation with a representative of Bank Mizrahi Tefahot in Kiryat Shmona sheds light on the obstacles faced by non-Jewish clientele.

Haaretz

Mizrahi Tefahot Bank’s new ad campaign “From Dan to Eilat” has been hard to miss since taking to the airwaves several weeks ago. With a life preserver around his neck, actor Dvir Benedik climbs aboard his sidecar-equipped motorcycle along with his dog Rambo, and the pair sets out to solve a riddle: Why don’t people switch banks?

As Mizrahi’s pitchman, Benedik has been telling us to switch banks for four years now. But it turns out that despite his cross-country expeditions, Mizrahi has been systematically skipping entire sections of Israel – particularly areas inhabited by Arabs. It also turns out that the bank’s doors aren’t actually wide open to all Israelis.

In early 2012 several Mizrahi call center reps referred Arabs looking to open an account to the branch in Kiryat Shmona. After a while the officer at the branch in charge of recruiting new clients – we’ll call her “L.” – phoned the call center with a request: Stop sending us Arab customers or you’ll receive a “negative denial.”

What she meant was the referral of a client to a branch that didn’t result in an account being opened, something that would appear as a black mark on the rep’s record. L. knew that under Israeli law a client asking to open an account can’t be turned down, so she instructed phone reps to convince Arab callers to drop the idea – mainly by making it clear that the bank doesn’t provide credit at the time a new client opens an account, but only after several months have passed. A phone conversation between L and the call center that reached Haaretz reveals what occurred at the branch.

L.: So, about the cousins – do you know what “cousins” are?

G., the call center represenative: No, I don’t know. What does it mean?

L.: The…Arabs. Arabs, Druze…whatever you call them. We don’t provide credit immediately, only after half a year; between four to five months…

G.: Let’s say a client is in the best economic shape, by definition because he’s Arab then that’s how it is?

L.: A new account, a new account! You offer him all sorts of things. So don’t offer. Tell him, pay a visit if you really want. Say that we don’t give it right away – only in four to five months. I closed three of your referrals.

G.: But what’s the deal? Another customer is great and an Arab isn’t?

L.:I don’t want…I, I can’t say it on the phone, but I’m telling you so you can understand between the lines. There are things that go unsaid, but I’m sorry, that’s simply how it works at this bank, at our branch. There are no authorizations here. They aren’t given immediately, only after five months. Why? Because they live in villages across the line [1967 borders]:It’s Mas’ade [in the Golan] it’s Ashar [apparently, a mistaken reference to Ghajar, part of which is in Lebanon] … We’re afraid of giving here at the branch, because there’s been bad experience with these people, you understand? That they took the money and ran off, and we have a new manager and deputy manager here who aren’t willing to do
it.

G.: And if he’s from a village that isn’t within those lines, is it okay?

L.: No. I’m telling you again, no. No. No go. If you want to make an effort, don’t make it on the cousins, okay? I’m telling you so you’ll simply understand, because it would be a pity if I close on a negative.

G.: The truth is I’ve been having a very hard time with what you’re saying. If you were talking specifically about Mas’ade or a certain village you would be making a logical argument.

No logical argument

L.: There is no logical argument – it’s the argument of this branch. I’m explaining to you so you won’t have a bunch of turndowns.

G.:I don’t care about the turndowns. You’re saying something that’s hard to listen to.

L.:I know it’s hard, but that’s how it works at this branch. It always has been that way.

G.: Then alright, I’ll do my job and I’ll refer anyone who’s a good client, and you decide whether to close him.

L.: No problem. But you should know they’re very angry at me. [They say] ‘Why do they promise me something at the call center…’

G.:I don’t promise anyone anything. For everything, I say it is [contingent] on the branch’s approval. But if there’s a good client, I’ll send him, I won’t say … unless you say living in a certain village, then it’s logical. Beyond that I can’t understand.L.: There’s no problem. I’m just telling you our side. We don’t provide credit immediately. There were two here yesterday. One left upset. He wants to sue me personally and the bank [for credit] that I’m not ready to give him, and why did they promise him and he isn’t getting. We’ll get a lawsuit here…We’ll certainly receive something from the Bank of Israel. The other one was angry and I managed to calm him down, but he’ll wait five months with the expectation that he’ll receive it. I want to minimize damage at the outset so that’s what I say. Because it’s an instruction from above, from the highest place in the branch, that we don’t give them – perhaps after five months, half a year. If they execute a

standing order to save NIS 1,000 to NIS 1,500 [a month] maybe they’ll think about it, about some small credit of NIS 3,000 – even an eight or nine (thousand shekel) credit line. That’s about the size of it. You simply need to understand, if they don’t have collateral then there’s nothing.

L.:I’m really sorry. It’s terribly important for me to explain to you that I very much want to recruit clients. It’s my job at the branch. I want to help everyone walking in, and it’s important for the other side working with me to understand me. It comes from a good place, not a bad place…
