أرسل الرئيس محمود عباس بـ “تعازيه الحارة” لعائلة رجل الدين اليهودي المتطرف، عوفاديا يوسيف، الزعيم الروحي والحاخام الأكبر لحزب “شاس” الإسرائيلي.

وأوضحت صحيفة “يديعوت أحرنوت” العبرية أن عباس قدم تعازيه، الاثنين (7/10)، خلال لقائه بـ (14) عضواً من أعضاء البرلمان الإسرائيلي من مختلف الكتل السياسية تحت مسمى “لوبي حل الدولتين”.

ونشرت الصحيفة العبرية تصريحات على لسان أبو مازن، قال فيها إنه إلتقى الحاخام يوسيف بمقر المقاطعة بمدينة رام الله، وسط الضفة الغربية، في وقت سابق. متابعاً: “والآن أنقل تعازيَ وأسفي وأسف الشعب الفلسطيني لوفاته”.

وكان الحاخام اليهودي عوفاديا مات صباح اليوم بعد صراع طويل مع المرض، واشتهر بأرائه ومواقفه المتطرفة ضد الفلسطينيين والعرب.

يذكر أن ذات الحاخام في عام 2001 دعا لإبادة الفلسطينيين، قائلاً: “يجب أن لا نرأف بهم، ويجب علينا إبادتهم”. ووصفهم بـ”الأشرار والملعونين”.

The defense chiefs will discuss Iran, Syria and the situation in Lebanon, as they have done regularly over the past year, among other issues.

Ya’alon will also meet with UN Secretary General Ban Kimoon, Sen. Robert Menandez, chairman of the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, and the heads of Jewish communities.

Later, he will visit a Lockheed Martin production center in Texas and inspect the F-35 fifth-generation multirole fighter jet, which is due to come into service for the Israel Air Force in 2015.

Defense officials view the F- 35 as a guarantee of Israel’s regional qualitative edge, and have remained committed to the project despite the technical difficulties that have plagued the aircraft’s development in recent years.

The air force will form a squadron of F-35s at the Nevatim Airbase southeast of Beersheba, which currently houses F-16 squadrons and C-130 Hercules transport planes.

Urging halt to Iran nuke program, Naziyahu signals discord with Obama

Speaking at weekly cabinet meeting, PM insists Tehran must not maintain any enrichment capacity; US would allow peaceful program

Times of Israel

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called Sunday for Iran to be kept from having any capability to enrich uranium, reiterating an Israeli demand that could put him on a collision course with US efforts to engage Tehran diplomatically.

The statement, before a weekly cabinet meeting, came a day after the Prime Minister’s Office attempted to paint the US and Israel on the same page regarding Iran, after US President Barack Obama said the US estimate on a timeline for Iran to get a bomb was more conservative than Israel’s.

“Iran — which has violated all understandings and misled time and time again, which has declared its intention to destroy the State of Israel and, of course, has violated other decisions as well, and which leads terrorism on five continents — must not be allowed to have an enrichment capability,” Netanyahu declared. “This is the most important point.”

The US and other world powers engaged in talks with Tehran over its nuclear program have signaled that they would accept some enrichment for civilian purposes as long as it was under international supervision. Iran says its nuclear program is for peaceful purposes, a claim Israel and much of the West have rejected.

Shortly after Iranian President Hassan Rouhani’s trip to New York in September, during which he met with Western diplomats on the sidelines of the UN General Assembly, US Secretary of State John Kerry indicated that Iran could potentially preserve its enrichment capability for a peaceful program.

“If it is a peaceful program, and we can all see that, the whole world sees that, the relationship with Iran can change dramatically for the better and it can change fast,” Kerry told CBS’s “60 Minutes.”

In Sunday’s meeting, Netanyahu was clear in his position that sanctions must remain in full force until Iran is prevented from attaining nuclear weapons. “The sanctions on Iran are working,” he said. “They are very strong; they are a moment away from achieving their goal. The sanctions must not be eased before the goal of dismantling Iran’s enrichment capability, in effect, the ability to produce nuclear weapons, is achieved.”

The US has vowed to keep sanctions in place until it sees action from the Iranian side, while Tehran has called for sanctions relief as a starting measure.

On Saturday, daylight seemed to open between Washington and Jerusalem over the pace of Iran’s nuclear program, though sources in Jerusalem attempted to downplay the discord.

Obama, in a wide-ranging interview with the Associated Press on Saturday, disclosed that US intelligence agencies believe Iran continues to be a year or more away from having the capability to make a nuclear weapon. Israel contends that Tehran is on a faster course and could be just months away from breakout capacity.

An official in Netanyahu’s office said Saturday night that Obama and Netanyahu “see eye to eye on the need to prevent Iran from getting nuclear weapons.”

“The critical time that the prime minister refers to is not the time for completing production of a nuclear bomb but rather the time needed for Iran to complete enriching uranium, which is the most important component in preparing a nuclear weapon,” he said regarding the time frame issue.

“If Iran decides to complete enriching uranium it can do so within a few weeks of the start day,” he said on condition of anonymity, because he is not allowed to discuss the issue with the media.

Israel views a nuclear-armed Iran as a threat to its very existence, citing Iran’s repeated calls for Israel’s destruction, its long-range missile program and its support for violent anti-Israel groups like the Hezbollah in Lebanon. Iran insists that its nuclear program is for civilian use.

“There is no reason why Iran, which claims it wants nuclear energy just for peaceful purposes, should maintain the ability to enrich uranium, which allows for the development of material necessary for building a bomb,” the Israeli official said.

Rouhani recently delivered a conciliatory speech at the United Nations in which he said Iran had no intention of building a nuclear weapon and declared his readiness for new negotiations with world powers.

At the end of the visit, Rouhani and Obama held a 15-minute phone call as the Iranian leader was traveling to the airport. It was the first conversation between the nations’ leaders in 34 years and raised hopes that a breakthrough on the nuclear issue could portend ties between the United States and Iran.

Netanyahu has greeted Rouhani’s outreach with deep skepticism, expressing fears that Iran will use upcoming nuclear talks as a ploy to get the world to ease painful economic sanctions while secretly pressing forward with its nuclear program.

On Friday, Netanyahu returned from the United States, where Iran was the main topic in talks with Obama and his address at the United Nations.

Obama Botched an Earlier Syria Peace Deal

NOVANEWS

One year and 80,000 lives ago, the U.N. envoy had carved a path for a government “transition.” But the White House and Hillary Clinton rejected it.

(SAUL LOEB/AFP/Getty Images)

Despite Secretary of State John Kerry’s frenetic efforts, preparations for the “Geneva II” peace conference on Syria’s civil war are already foundering. The rebel movement has become increasingly radicalized against Syrian dictator Bashar al-Assad and more fractured. A newly confident Assad, meanwhile, has somewhat relegitimized himself as a signatory to a new chemical-weapons ban negotiated by the United States and Russia under U.N. auspices, which his government is tasked with implementing over the next year. Defying global opprobrium over his use of sarin gas, Assad has also positioned himself in a series of high-profile TV interviews as a preferable alternative to Islamist rebels who want to create a fundamentalist state.

All of which should prompt a reexamination of the first Geneva conference in the summer of 2012, on which Kerry’s new push for peace is based. According to some officials involved, perhaps the greatest tragedy of Syria is that, some 80,000 lives ago, President Obama might have had within his grasp a workable plan to end the violence, one that is far less possible now. But amid the politics of the 2012 presidential election—when GOP nominee Mitt Romney regularly accused Obama of being “soft”—the administration did little to make it work and simply took a hard line against Assad, angering the special U.N. Syria envoy, Kofi Annan, and prompting the former U.N. secretary-general to quit, according to several officials involved.

Former members of Annan’s negotiating team say that after then-Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov on June 30, 2012, jointly signed a communique drafted by Annan, which called for a political “transition” in Syria, there was as much momentum for a deal then as Kerry achieved a year later on chemical weapons. Afterward, Annan flew from Geneva to Moscow and gained what he believed to be Russian President Vladimir Putin’s consent to begin to quietly push Assad out. But suddenly both the U.S. and Britain issued public calls for Assad’s ouster, and Annan felt blindsided. Immediately afterward, against his advice, then-U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice offered up a “Chapter 7” resolution opening the door to force against Assad, which Annan felt was premature.

Annan resigned a month later. At the time, the soft-spoken Ghanaian diplomat was cagey about his reasons, appearing to blame all sides. “I did not receive all the support that the cause deserved,” Annan told reporters in Geneva. He also criticized what he called “finger-pointing and name-calling in the Security Council.” But former senior aides and U.N. officials say in private that Annan blamed the Obama administration in large part. “The U.S. couldn’t even stand by an agreement that the secretary of State had signed in Geneva,” said one former close Annan aide who would discuss the talks only on condition of anonymity. “He quit in frustration. I think it was clear that the White House was very worried about seeming to do a deal with the Russians and being soft on Putin during the campaign.” One of the biggest Republican criticisms of Obama at the time was that he had, in an embarrassing “open mike” moment, promised Moscow more “flexibility” on missile defense after the election.

Administration officials deny this account, as do some who were involved at the State Department. Nonetheless, Frederic Hof, a U.S. ambassador who was Clinton’s special adviser for transition in Syria at the time, agrees that the negotiations could have been better handled. The harsh demand that “Assad must go” voiced by Clinton and British Foreign Secretary William Hague was “gratuitous,” says Hof, a senior fellow at the Atlantic Council. “Perhaps a greater effort should have been made to give Annan the time to do his due diligence.” Still, Hof says he saw no evidence that the administration was posturing for political reasons.

A current senior State Department official concedes that one of the problems with making the Annan communique work may have been Clinton’s distaste for getting involved in extended direct mediation, in dramatic contrast to her successor, who has opened up negotiations on several fronts at once—with Syria and the Russians, with Iran, and between the Palestinians and Israelis. “We’ve made more trips to the Mideast in the last nine months than she made in four years,” says this official.

While Clinton excelled at “soft” power—selling America’s message abroad—one emerging criticism of her four-year tenure at State was that she consistently avoided getting her hands dirty with direct mediation. Clinton agreed to leave key negotiations in crisis spots—in particular the Mideast and south-central Asia—to special envoys such as George Mitchell and Richard Holbrooke, and she rarely stepped in as each of them failed. Veteran reporter David Rohde, in an assessment as Clinton was leaving office in January, suggested that Clinton wanted to avoid embarrassment or failure ahead of a 2016 presidential run; he quoted one State Department official as saying that he was “really happy to have someone in the job who does not retain political ambitions.”

Still, Hof and critics of the administration say a 2012 peace deal would have been a steep, uphill climb at best. “I think there were a couple of problems that raised their ugly head in the immediate wake of this thing being signed on June 30,” Hof says. “Number one, it became clear to both Annan and the Russians that Assad had no interest whatever in being ‘transitioned.’ He was able to read the text of the Geneva agreement quite accurately…. By the same token, the opposition was unhappy with Kofi’s handwork because there was no explicit language to the effect that Assad will step down.”

But what happened next was that the Geneva communique disappeared onto a dusty shelf; even Kerry when he took office chided the Obama administration for being “late” in pushing peace. And what Kerry faces now is a newly assertive Assad and a vastly more fractured opposition riddled with extreme elements that want no part of a U.S.- or Western-brokered peace. All of which makes that missed opportunity even more painful.

Naziyahu–’We have lost a Torah Giant’

ynet

Israeli officials and religious leaders expressed deep sorrow over the death of Shas ‘ spiritual leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef on Monday. “One of the great minds of the generations is gone,” said Israeli Chief Rabbi David Lau.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said, “Rabbi Ovadia was a Torah giant and a mentor for thousands. He worked extensively to glorify Israeli heritage but also took into consideration historic changes and realities of modern life in his rulings.

“He loved the Torah and the people. I greatly appreciated his warm personality and his direct manners. I grew wiser with each of our meetings. The Jewish people have lost one of the great minds of the generation.

Netanyahu spoke about the deep impression the rabbi made on him: “I appreciated his heartfelt and direct way. I always left out meetings wiser, and I seek to send my condolences and the condolences of the whole Israeli people to his family, to his many pupils, to those who cherished his way. There are many who did, and we will all miss him. May he rest in peace.

“I was just telling the rabbis what a huge loss this is to the nation of Israel. I think about the chain of generations, the Mishna, the geniuses of Babylon and Spain. I mentioned Rabbi Karo. This is the legacy of Rabbi Ovadia. A link in the chain of the love of the Torah, and teaching it in Israel throughout the generations. He determined that the Ethiopian Jews are Jews for any matter and interest, and walked where other people, as grand as they were, hadn’t the tenacity to walk. He led by going ahead of the camp and adjusted the legacy to the renewing people of Israel. That is a mighty quality. Mighty. A very great loss to the people of Israel and to the spirit of Israel, which he represents.”

The Arab world also responded to the death of Rabbi Ovadia. Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas expressed his condolences Monday afternoon, saying, “I’ve met with the Rabbi’s family before, and I’d like to express my condolences, and those of the Palestinian people, about his passing.”

Al Jazeera announced the death of the rabbi, defining him as “The influential spiritual leader of the Sephardic Jewish community.”

British Ambassador to Israel, Matthew Gould, said he is saddened by the rabbi’s death: “I had the honor of meeting him and seeing his unusual spirit. I got to see up close his love of man, and his will for peace. I send my condolences to his family, to Rabbi Yizhak Yosef, and to all of the Shas movement.”

Education Minister Shai Piron said: “Along with his hundreds of thousands of disciples, I ache for the death of Rabbi Ovadia Yosef today. He was one in his generation in wisdom, leadership, and ruling. The rabbi left an irremovable signature on Israeli history. His legacy will go on to lead Israel for many years.|

Minister of Strategic Affairs Yuval Steinitz also sent his condolences, saying, “The people of Israel lost a dear man, a great rabbi and a huge man of spirit. I had the privilege to read some of his books and meet him about a dozen times and I was always impressed by his wisdom and concern for all the people of Israel. I send my regards to the Yosef family and to my friends in Shas for the great loss.”

Yair Lapid and his Yesh Atid party said in a statement, “The rabbi shaped the Chief Rabbinate and was one of the great halachic arbiters. His passing leaves the Torah world with a huge vacuum.”

The Habayit Hayehudi Party said, “Rabbi Ovadia Yosef will be missed in every Israeli household. He knew how to connect the people with the Torah. We mourn his loss and send our condolences to his family and his students.”

Overwhelmed with grief, MK Eli Yishai (Shas) burst into tears after saying “Blessed be the True Judge. The crown of our head fell.”

Shas chairman Arieh Deri was equally as mournful, and had difficulty repressing tears as he cried, “How will we be left alone? Who will lead us? We remain orphans.”

I$raHell’s Case Against Diplomacy With Iran Based Upon Lies

 

“Netanyahu’s case against diplomatic relations with Iran is built on two false premises: first, the claim based on a false translation that Iran wants to destroy Israel … Second, it is based upon the false claim that Iran is developing nuclear weapons.”–James Fetzer

by Jim Fetzer and Press TV

Netanyahu featured image

Press TV has conducted an interview with James Fetzer, a professor with the University of Minnesota, in Madison, Wisconsin, about US President Barack Obama’s apparent change of tone vis-à-vis Iran and his possible willingness to ease Washington’s tensions with Tehran plus Israel’s reaction to that. The following is an approximate transcript of the interview.

Press TV: We saw President Obama’s speech at the UN General Assembly and what he said regarding Iran. Then we again saw what he said on Iran after his meeting with Benyamin Netanyahu.

How are you interpreting this sudden change in tone?

Fetzer: I believe it is a very positive development. Netanyahu’s case against diplomatic relations with Iran is built on two false premises: first, the claim based on a false translation that Iran wants to destroy Israel.

On 25 October 2005, then President Ahmadinejad cited the Ayatollah Khomeini’s observation that this regime occupying Jerusalem must vanish from the pages of time, which was a call for regime change, not the destruction of Israel.

While the loss of his position as prime minister might be a catastrophe for Netanyahu, I believe the world would breathe a sigh of relief.

Second, it is based upon the false claim that Iran is developing nuclear weapons. The 16 intelligence agencies of the United States converged in the conclusion in 2007 that Iran was not pursuing a nuclear weapons program – a conclusion they reaffirmed in 2011, which means that the imposition of sanctions upon Iran for the development of a nuclear weapons program by the Obama administration is contradicted by the findings of its own intelligence agencies and represents a form of collective punishment, which was found to be a war crime by the Nuremberg Tribunal.

Press TV: Iran has been saying – and I’m quoting officials here and those involved with the nuclear program – that it’s been allowing IAEA inspections of its nuclear capabilities, nuclear facilities, nuclear activities and that the supervision that the IAEA has on these activities is even beyond what Iran is entitled to based on the NPT.

At the same time, I’d like to have your comment on how Iran’s cooperation with the IAEA plays into this and the fact that the IAEA has not come up with any evidence that Iran is pursuing a weapons program.

And then Israel, which is known to possess nuclear weapons as the only entity in the region that’s known to possess nuclear weapons, how ironic that is when it comes out and says that it wants Iran to stop enriching uranium, to put its entire nuclear program altogether away – that coming from an entity that has weapons of mass destruction itself.

Fetzer on Netanyahu

Click here: “Israel’s case against diplomacy with Iran is based upon lies”

Fetzer: Well, of course, all the points you make are impeccable. Iran has signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty; Iran has allowed inspectors; Iran is not pursuing nuclear weapons. All of that is very evident in the record.

Israel, however, has 200-600 of these little beauties, has never signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty, and will not allow inspectors.

I believe Netanyahu is attempting to refocus attention on Iran because the agreement to remove chemical weapons from Syria reached by the United Nations threatens to cast the spotlight on the fact that Israel also has a huge arsenal of chemical and biological weapons. It possesses these weapons of mass destruction, which it has never disclosed in violation of nuclear, biological and chemical conventions.

And Netanyahu and other hawks in Israel are terrified of the thought that they might actually be held responsible under international law, which they have made a practice of flouting in the past.

Press TV: Regarding what was said by our guest in New York (Alon Ben-Meir, Mideast Director of the World Policy Institute), he was saying that the “charm offensive” by Iran is not enough that in order for mistrust to be resolved between the two sides that action is needed.

But this is also what Iran is asking the US. Iran is saying that we can’t, after three decades of mistrust, expect the United States to say something … you can’t expect Iran to trust them when they say that they want rapprochement with Iran; they are recognizing Iran’s nuclear rights.

Already we’re seeing contradictory remarks being made by Obama on this, even in his remarks. So, what do you think is needed for that confidence building?

Fetzer: Well, it’s necessary to take a hard objective look at the evidence. Iran has never made an effort to overthrow the government of the United States, but in 1953, Kermit Roosevelt and the CIA overthrew the democratically elected government of Iran.

It’s atrocious to suggest the US has reasons to distrust Iran when Iran has every reason to distrust the United States. Iran is a peaceful nation, it hasn’t attacked any other country in over 300 years, has signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty, allows inspectors, and is perfectly entitled to develop a peaceful nuclear energy program.

Lurking in the background is that fact that Iran has the capacity to provide nuclear fuel rods to developing nations at much lower prices than the American nuclear industry, which would like nothing better than to cut off the competition that Iran represents. The situation is completely hypocritical …

I am hoping that Obama will follow the lead provided by the American people when they objected overwhelmingly – some 90 percent of the American people – to the idea of throwing cruise missiles into Syria, which would not only kill many more Syrians than the administration alleges had died from the use of these gas attacks, which clearly were committed by the rebels and not by the Syrian government, but would be in obvious violation of international law when Obama claims to be upholding international law.

I am reminded of the stories from Vietnam – “We had to destroy the village in order to save it.”

Press TV: Do you think that Israel is actually in favor of relations between Iran and the US, Iran and the West and is working towards that aim?

Fetzer: Israel is trying to defeat any normalization of relationship between Iran and the United States – which would be all for the good.

Israel has committed many terrorist acts and blamed them on others including Iran. In 1992, it attacked its own Israeli embassy in Buenos Aires and then again in 1994 attacked its own Jewish community center. I published on this with Adrian Salbuchi. Israeli attacks, Argentina: 1992False Flag attacks in  and 1994″, and there are many other instances of terrorism committed by Israel, not by Iran.

George Galloway: The Killing of Tony Blair

NOVANEWS 

 

“Some people make a living, others make a killing” – an exclusive new documentary on Tony Blair which will break unexplored ground

Thank you for all the pledges so far! 

Your contributions so far have been overwhelmingly generous. Given the great enthusiasm we have received so far, we have raised our ambitions to making a feature length documentary for global cinema release in order to reach the widest audience possible and to making this the best and most thorough documentary it can be. Therefore we need to keep raising funds.  Please keep circulating the link and keep telling your friends and family to continue to donate. Tony Blair knows we are after him, let’s let him know we mean business!

I’m making the definitive documentary about the Blair years. Years of war and plunder, death and destruction, corruption and disillusion. Tony Blair killed the Labour Party as we knew it. He and George W. Bush helped killa million people in disastrous wars and Blair is currently making a financial killing out of both.

He's making 'a killing', out of killing.
He’s making ‘a killing’, out of killing.

In 2003, I was expelled from the Labour Party over my outspoken opposition to Bush and Blair’s war in Iraq. I promised that until the last day of my life I would go on fighting to put Tony Blair on trial, a real trial in The Hague, for war crimes and crimes against humanity. This documentary, the mother of all documentaries, will expose Blair’s crimes.

This documentary will not be another sterile chronicle of the Blair years. I witnessed his mendacity firsthand and am able to offer you the inside story. I will pull no punches in going toe to toe with those in the upper echelons of New Labour; the likes of Peter Mandelson and Alistair Campbell are all in my sights and so are the big business bankers he consults for. There is no doubt that the debates will be heated. But from that heat will come light.

I need your help to launch this film. We are trying to raise £50,000 here on this site. This target is the absolute bare minimum we need to complete the research and filming. In total, we will need more than twice that amount to purchase further archive materials, distribute and market the documentary. We are confident that a successful Kickstarter campaign will empower us to match funds from other sources.

This is an all-or-nothing platform. If we don’t raise the full £50,000 in just 40 days, no money changes hands. I hope you will want to be a part of this. You can be the difference to help make history, stop Blair in his tracks, halt his profiteering, and bring him to some kind of justice. It is an ambitious project, but it is not beyond us.

Thank you,

George Galloway MP

The film will look at how Blair rose without trace to hijack the Labour Party and to fly it to destruction. At how a million people lie dead as a result of the Blair era. In Afghanistan, Iraq, Lebanon, Pakistan, and even on the streets of western capitals, like London and Madrid. At how he feathered the beds of the rich and powerful and how finally, upon leaving office, he ruthlessly exploited his Downing Street contacts and climbed into those feathered beds himself. His Faustian pact with the likes of Rupert Murdoch, the bankers and the City slickers will be laid bare.

This film will break new and unexplored ground with never before seen footage, exclusive interviews and penetrating commentary. In addition, diplomats, investigative journalists, well-known artists and activists, as well as victims of the Blair era will all participate.

Risks and challenges Learn about accountability on KickstarterAs with any documentary, there are risks and challenges that may arise over the course of the production of this film. Two of our biggest challenges will be finalising the documentary in the foreseen timeline as well as reaching our financial target.

This is a very ambitious project, hoping to reveal information not yet seen or told before. Without a doubt there are certain people who may want to obstruct our work given the contents of the film. In addition, given the investigative nature of the documentary, we are cognisant that during the making of the film we may come across new facts and information that will warrant additional research. For this reason, a challenge will be to try and complete the documentary in the scheduled timescale, while allowing flexibility to improve it through further research or new interviewees. Newly found information can also influence the financing of the film, as further costly archive footage may need to be purchased or new shooting locations may need to be visited. We firmly believe that these challenges will be overcome and we will not make any compromises with regard to the quality of this documentary.

The timescale we have set for the delivery of rewards is a rough estimate and we will do all we can to give them to you at the indicated time. Delivery of some of the rewards, however, could directly be affected by delays we may encounter while making the documentary. Please rest assured that we will of course make sure that the rewards are delivered and that our team will do its upmost to send them to you as soon as possible.

NSA and Jewish Bankers: Two Zionist Monsters

NOVANEWS 

by Jonas E. Alexis

nsa-auge

Glenn Greenwald of The Guardian has conducted an interview with the Israeli newspaper Haaretzduring which he declared that

“The cardinal point is that part of the goal of the NSA is to completely eliminate privacy everywhere in the world. Its goal is to make every piece of human communication that is done by electronic means vulnerable to monitoring and surveillance − to collect, store and analyze every message transmitted by people via the telephone or the Internet.

“All the specific revelations are only examples of this: the fact that they collected the telephone records of all American citizens, that they detail every phone call made by every American citizen; the Prism and XKeyscore programs, which show how they can collect billions of pieces of communication every day and store and analyze the things you say, who you say them to, which websites you visit and so on.

Those are the means. The essence is the vast, sealed system of surveillance which is conducted in absolute secrecy.”[1]

Of course, the obvious question the inquiring mind would ask is this: “What’s the problem with that?” Greenwald responded,

“If those with power are capable of monitoring everything we do or say, that means we are very limited in what we can do or say against them. That’s the reason that every tyranny has always used surveillance as a tool to preserve its power.

“The second problem is that it’s a tool of intimidation. If the population knows that it is always being watched, people will have far less motivation to act, because they will feel vulnerable and threatened. The result is a kind of political paralysis among the public.

“The third and perhaps most important thing is that human behavior changes very fundamentally when there is no private space. People who know they are being observed behave in a manner that is far more restrained, narrow and fossilized. They become a lot less free, a lot less willing to test boundaries.

“Supervision and surveillance encourage conformity in people and eliminate something very essential in the human experience, in human nature: the freedom to do things when we know that no one is looking.

“The history of almost every country that exercises surveillance of its citizens is one of extreme abuse of that power. There is no consolation in the thought that the government promises to use that power exclusively against terrorists. Its use is almost always against political dissidents or against people who constitute a threat or challenge to the power apparatus. ”[2]

edward-snowden

We have seen in previous articles that the Israeli regime is one of the political forces behind the NSA. Edward Snowden indeed found himself drowning in the Zionist river of time but somehow swam against the currents and found a way out.

According to Snowden, people are floating in the Zionist river at their own perils. The end of that Zionist river is the end of American privacy. The end of that river is the end of privacy in virtually the entire world. Now Snowden is warning those who are still consciously or unconsciously floating in that river. He said:

“The surveillance of whole populations, rather than individuals, threatens to be the greatest human rights challenge of our time. A culture of secrecy has denied our societies the opportunity to determine the appropriate balance between the human right of privacy and the governmental interest in investigation.

“These are not decisions that should be made for a people, but only by the people after full, informed, and fearless debate. Yet public debate is not possible without public knowledge, and in my country, the cost for one in my position of returning public knowledge to public hands has been persecution and exile.

“If we are to enjoy such debates in the future, we cannot rely upon individual sacrifice. We must create better channels for people of conscience to inform not only trusted agents of government, but independent representatives of the public outside of government.”[3]

Once again, Snowden here is right in line with rational thought. What he is saying here is firmly compatible with what the Founding Fathers said and defended.

YOU ARE A TERRORIST IF YOU RESIST THE NSA

bankers

The NSA’s covert activity, however, gets worse almost every two weeks or so:

“Top secret US government documents…characterize even the most basic political and legal opposition to drone attacks as part of ‘propaganda campaigns’ from America’s ‘adversaries.’

“The entry is part of a top secret internal US government website, similar in appearance to the online Wikipedia site. According to a June interview with Snowden in Hong Kong, the only individuals empowered to write these entries are those ‘with top secret clearance and public key infrastructure certificates,’ special access cards enabling unique access to certain parts of NSA systems. He added that the entries are ‘peer reviewed’ and that every edit made is recorded by user…

“The NSA entry further claims that ‘manipulation of statistics’ over civilian deaths is a frequent propaganda tool of ‘adversaries,’ citing one study that concluded that roughly 9 out of 10 victims from drone strikes are civilians. To contrast such propaganda studies, the NSA entry cites a New America Foundation study concluding that ‘civilians make up about one-third of those killed.’

“The US has previously denounced drone opponents as US adversaries and even terrorist sympathizers. In 2011, the Bureau of Investigative Journalists published a study documenting numerous civilian deaths in Pakistanduring the same time period for when John Brennan, then the chief White House counterterrorism adviser and now CIA Director, had falsely asserted there were no such deaths. Subsequent reports further proved the clear falsity of Brennan’s statements.”

“The US government has a long history of treating drone opponents as national security threats.”[4]

It has been reported recently that the NSA had a “U.S. assassination program,” where it seems to be that people who do not comply with what the NSA does would be exterminated.[5]

The evidence has not been fleshed out completely, but we do know that the NSA has gathered even social-networking data on Americans “to map behavior.”[6] As Gene Healy of the CATO Institute has put it, no one can hide from the NSA anymore.[7]

Here’s the rub: when NSA workers are not spying on Americans, they are spying on their spouses and girlfriends. The Associated Press recently reported:

“Confirming media reports that agency workers used surveillance technology in their private life—a practice jokingly known as ‘loveint’—the NSA’s inspector general, General George Ellard, released a letter to a US senator disclosing details of the romantic snooping.”[8]

In other words, you, the average American, pay your taxes, and that money goes to support people who will be using the NSA to spy on their husbands and wives and girlfriends. Listen to this:

“A National Security Agency employee was able to secretly intercept the phone calls of nine foreign women for six years without ever being detected by his managers, the agency’s internal watchdog has revealed.

“The unauthorised abuse of the NSA‘s surveillance tools only came to light after one of the women, who happened to be a US government employee, told a colleague that she suspected the man – with whom she was having a sexual relationship – was listening to her calls.

“The case is among 12 documented in a letter from the NSA’s inspector general to a leading member of Congress, who asked for a breakdown of cases in which the agency’s powerful surveillance apparatus was deliberately abused by staff. One relates to a member of the US military who, on the first day he gained access to the surveillance system, used it to spy on six email addresses belonging to former girlfriends.”[9]

But that means nothing to people like Diane Feinstein, who is fighting tooth and nail to preserve the NSA’s illegal activities against Americans.[10]

If counter-terrorism is not one of the biggest jokes ever told, then nothing is.

THE BANKERS ARE TOO FAT TO BE JAILED?

sachs

What we are clearly seeing here is that if you are against anything that the Zionist regime has cooked up, then you are more than likely to be labeled a terrorist or something equally worse.

Whatever they do, you must accept it. In the Zionist world, free speech and free expression are simply relics of the past.

Whenever the Zionist mob is not in charge, they ask for diversity; but whenever they take control over the academia, they fine you if you ask for just an ounce of diversity.

If you question the “Holocaust” in Germany—like the 73-year old Bishop Williamson has done—you will be fined $2,431.[11] Then you have Zionist shills such as David Cameron who will increase funding for the Holocaust story to stay alive.[12]

Where will Cameron get the money? Well, he will loot the average guy in England. “Up to 146 million Europeans are at risk of falling into poverty by 2025…”[13]

There is more bad news. You, the average American, are going to send your sons and daughters to die not for freedom but for the Zionist regime. Citing again Andrew Bacevich:

“Few of the very rich send their sons or daughters to fight. Few of those leaving the military’s ranks find their way into the ranks of plutocracy.”[14]

And what do all those perpetual wars bring? Bacevich tells us: “civic decay, child poverty, homelessness, illegitimacy, and eating disorders,” where many people are now “overweight, overmedicated, and deeply in hock…”[15]

If you think that Bacevich is just pulling your leg, just read the article by the American Prospect last month entitled, “What’s Killing Poor White Women?”[16] And if you think the Zionist regime cares about what you think, just read about the current situation in America.

Virtually everyone knows that the debt ceiling in America is pathetic and that the country is already in its economic coffin. Obama summoned both parties at the White House precisely because they all know the country is already on the brink of economic collapse.[17]

matt-taibbi (1)

Yet in the midst of all this, Netanyahu wants the U.S. to threaten Iran, obviously to produce more bloodshed in the Middle East.

The Zionist regime is currently looting pension funds,[18] and this activity has already sent shockwave across the nation.[19]  But you have to zip your lips.Business Insider has recently declared that “markets are crumbling all around the world as government shutdown gets close,”[20] but the Zionist regime is pushing more wars in the Middle East, including a bloody conflict with Iran. It has also been reported that nearly 5 million people are unemployed in Spain alone,[21] but we cannot focus on this problem because Israel is much more important.

Jewish companies such as Goldman Sachs and Wall Street are largely responsible for the economic collapse, but you, the average American, must use your own retirement money to bail them out.[22]

How do those companies use your precious money? Those Jewish bankers use them to fund drug lords and terrorism! Matt Taibbi of the Rolling Stone reported last February:

“For at least half a decade, the storied British colonial banking power helped to wash hundreds of millions of dollars for drug mobs, including Mexico’s Sinaloa drug cartel, suspected in tens of thousands of murders just in the past 10 years…

“The bank also moved money for organizations linked to Al Qaeda and Hezbollah, and for Russian gangsters…

“‘They violated every [expletive] law in the book,’ says Jack Blum, an attorney and former Senate investigator who headed a major bribery investigation against Lockheed in the 1970s that led to the passage of the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act. ‘They took every imaginable form of illegal and illicit business.’”[23]

And if you think that the war in Afghanistan has produced democracy, think again. In 1979, Afghanistan was producing only 250 tons of opium. By 2007, when the neo-Bolsheviks took over the country, at least “40,000 tons of illicit opiates have been stockpiled in Afghanistan, mostly to be marketed abroad.

“As of 2012, it was the world’s leading supplier of opium, with 74% of the global market, a figure that was expected to hit 90% as U.S. combat troops leave (and foreign aid flees). In other words, success in an endless war in that country has meant creating the world’s first true narco-state.”[24]
In short, we have reached an intolerable situation. We have the NSA virtually sucking the life out of virtually every American and much of the world by snooping on them, and we have Zombie Capitalist monsters such as Goldman Sachs, Wall Street, Bain Capital, JPMorgan Chase literally cheating the average American.

We have the Israeli regime currently destabilizing the West Bank by destroying Palestinian homes and building Jewish settlements in replacement.[25] Human Rights Watch recently declares,

“Israeli military forces should cease actions in a West Bank Bedouin community that were apparently intended to displace the residents without lawful justification.

“The military demolished all homes in the community on September 16, 2013, and blocked four attempts by humanitarian groups to provide shelters, with soldiers using force against residents, humanitarian workers, and foreign diplomats on September 20.

“Under international humanitarian law in effect in the occupied West Bank, the deliberate unlawful forced transfer of a population is a war crime.”[26]

JOURNALISTIC FRAUD

Seymour-Hersh-

Noted journalist Seymour Hersh has recently declared that serious journalism has been hijacked. The only way to get back to serious issues is, says Hersh, to “fire 90% of editors and promote ones you can’t control.”[27]

The New York Times, Hersh continues, “spends so much more time carrying water for Obama than I ever thought they would. Nothing’s been done about that story, it’s one big lie, not one word of it is true. It’s pathetic, they are more than obsequious, they are afraid to pick on this guy [Obama].”[28]

Good point. The New York Times has been sheltering their Zionist president for quite some times now. The New York Times has declared that terrorist activities have dropped because of the NSA.[29] Neoconservative magazines such as the Weekly Standard were already working on this case since last August.[30]

In other words, the NSA should continue its covert operation against Americans.

Yet to say that the NSA actually stops terrorist activities actually begs the question: who is supporting the Syrian rebels/terrorists now? Who is suspending both international law and the American Constitution to support terrorist regimes in the Middle East? Russia? China? Norway? Iceland? North Korea? Or maybe Cuba?

The answer is quite obvious: it is the neo-Bolshevik/Zionist regime in America and Israel that is supporting terrorism. The Washington Post has recently reported that the CIA is currently training the rebels/terrorists,[31]who themselves have more than likely used chemical weapons and put the blame on Assad.

Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov has recently said,

“We read reports and hear from various sources, semi-official and trustworthy, that some official representatives of a number of the countries of the region surrounding Syria allegedly established contacts and meet regularly with leaders of Jabhat al-Nusra and other terrorist groups, and also that those radicals have some components of chemical weapons maybe found in Syria or maybe brought from somewhere, and not just on the Syrian territory, but also that chemical weapons components have been brought to Iraq and that provocations are being prepared there.”[32]

Second, the claim that the NSA has actually stopped at least 54 terrorist plots is misleading at best. Keith Alexander has admitted under oath that this is not the case.[33] And after months of denying that the NSA can actually use devices such as cell phones to snoop on Americans, Alexander finally admitted that there is more to the NSA than meets the eye and ear.[34]

POISONOUS SNAKE

Bishop Williamson

Bishop Williamson

In response to the article by the New York Timeson the issue that the NSA has thwarted terrorist activities, one commentator declared, “So? What is your point? Letting an Orwellian police state spring up like a poisonous snake? I think not.”[35]

Precisely. Keith Alexander has recently reiterated his position that “it is in the nation’s best interest to put all the phone records into a lockbox that we can search when the nation needs it.”[36] And at this present moment the NSA is storing your online data for at least one year.[37]

Mark Landler of the New York Times has declared a few days ago that Obama has had a deeply “frustrating private correspondence with the leaders of Iran,”[38] leaving the impression that Washington has always wanted peaceful dialogue and has reached out to Iran.

The simple fact is that it is the opposite! Iran has always reached out to the U.S. Even after the 9/11 attack, Iran sent his deep sympathies to Bush and agreed to fight terrorism. But Bush, in his tyrannical mode, rejected Iran’s proposals.[39]

Moreover, Obama, in some instances, has tried to deal with Iran in a more respectful manner. But the Israeli regime has always tried to tell him what to say and what not to say. In other words, they got him handcuffed.[40]

Even before Rouhani called Obama recently, White House National Security Advisor Susan Rice “informed her Israeli counterpart Yaakov Amidror Friday of the planned telephone conversation U.S. President Barack Obama was to hold with Iranian President Hassan Rohani and then informed him of its contents after it had taken place.”[41]

The United States has to send tell Israel contents of a dialogue between Washington and Iran! That is power. Netanyahu responded by saying that the Iran deal is a trap.[42] Netanyahu declares,

“Just like North Korea before it, Iran professes to seemingly peaceful intentions; it talks the talk of nonproliferation while seeking to ease sanctions and buy more time for its nuclear program.”[43]

As soon as the two Zionist talking heads met in Washington, Netanyahu asked Obama to threaten Iran even more. And he did.[44] Netanyahu, in return, was pleased with Obama’s threatening manner.[45]

Netanyahu went even further to declare that Hourani is “a wolf in sheep’s clothing” who does have a “charm offensive.”[46] As Daniel Levy of European Council on Foreign Relations has put it,

“Netanyahu is signaling that there is no realistic deal that would be acceptable to Israel. For instance, a consensus exists among experts and Western officials that Iran’s right to enrich uranium — in a limited manner and under international supervision — for its civilian nuclear energy program will be a necessary part of any agreement. Netanyahu rejects this.”[47]

Jeffrey Goldberg

Jeffrey Goldberg

Even before Netanyahu and Obama met, Simon Peres was already sounding the alarming, saying things like “all options are on the table.”[48] Yet the vast majority of Americans—76 percent of them—would prefer direct talks with Iran.[49]

In all honesty, how does this man sleep at night with all his lies and deceptions under his pajamas? Israel does not even sign the Non-Proliferation Treaty, but the same regime is dictating that this or that nation should be sanctioned.

Moreover, the Zionist regime inexorably produced massive death in the Middle East, and it seems that every month they need more blood from the goyim for their bar-mitzvah rituals.

Just last month alone, 900 civilians were slaughtered in Iraq,[50] a country where the neo-Bolsheviks have already established their Jewish heaven on earth. Widespread torture and inhumane behavior continue to be the norm in Libya,[51] where the neo-Bolsheviks made their visit in 2011.

This year alone, 5,740 people have already lost their lives in that country.[52] Last July, 1,000 people lost their lives in the same country. It is almost the same situation in Afghanistan, where thousands upon thousands of civilians have lost their lives. As a result, people are fleeing those countries by the thousands.[53] We see the same thing in Syria, where it has been reported that more than 115,000 people have lost their lives.[54] The war has also produced a form of “sexual jihad.”[55]

What is even more interesting is that the neo-Bolsheviks in America are currently denouncing Hasan Hourani for his cogent essay.[56]Jeffrey Goldberg for example propounds that Hourani “is  attempting to charm the pants off the United Nations, President Barack Obama, world Jewry and Charlie Rose”[57] by saying nice things but doing something else in secret. Brian Williams of NBC propounded the same thing.[58]

Golberg has five reasons as to why we should not take Hourani seriously, but none of those reasons is compatible with the Israeli nuclear warheads programs.

Golberg asserts that Rouhani cannot be taken seriously because Rouhani said 1) he “will not even talk about suspending uranium enrichment; 2) Hourani seems to be a moderate, but that’s what makes him so dangerous; 3)Rouhani wants to pursue nuclear weapons because, according to Goldberg, “it’s in the best interest of Iran’s rulers”; 4) Iran lies about its nuclear program when it declares that it is “un-islamic.”

Goldberg asserts, “mass murder of innocent people is also prohibited by Islam, but Khamenei’s government engages in this practice through its support for Hezbollah and Bashar al-Assad in Syria, among others. The regime also kills many people directly, of course, including peacefully protesting Iranians.”

And finally, Goldberg declares that “the supreme leader is, in fact, the nuclear program’s chief backer.”[59]

In short, The Zionist regime both in Israel and in America is doing the same thing that the Pharisees did in the first century: they are pushing the goyim to do all their dirty work and, as a result, absolve themselves from any responsibility.

After all, did Rabbi Ovadia Yosef declare that “Goyim were born only to serve us [Jews]”? Didn’t he say that “you must send missiles to them and annihilate them”?[60] Didn’t William Kristol say that Obama “is a born-again neocon”?[61] Didn’t Jewish historian Yuri Slezkine of the University of California declare that this is “The Jewish Century”?[62]

Hersh concludes,

“I would close down the news bureaus of the networks and let’s start all over, tabula rasa. The majors, NBCs, ABCs, they won’t like this – just do something different, do something that gets people mad at you, that’s what we’re supposed to be doing.”[63]

This is a sad story but Hersh could not flesh out the fact that the news media is largely a Jewish town.[64] I am sure that Hersh knows that Hollywood, which makes a mockery out of any sacrilegious things in movies such asSweetwater Vengeance (they have yet to ridicule the Talmud in those movies), is also a Jewish empire.[65]

GOLDMAN SACHS AND THE REST OF US

Lloyd-Blankfein

Here’s an interesting thing: the oligarchs think that we have not given monstrous companies such as Goldman Sachs enough credit. Listen to this message by a self-proclaimed Ayn Rand devotee:

“Imagine the effect on our culture, particularly on the young, if the kind of fame and adulation bathing Lady Gaga attached to the more notable achievements of say, Warren Buffett.

Or if the moral praise showered on Mother Teresa went to someone like Lloyd Blankfein, who, in guiding Goldman Sachs toward billions in profits, has done infinitely more for mankind.

“(Since profit is the market value of the product minus the market value of factors used, profit represents the value created.) Instead, we live in a culture where Goldman Sachs is smeared as “a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity. . .[66]

Matt Taibbi, who is not even a Christian, was shocked: “What a world we live in, where Mother Teresa wins more moral praise than Lloyd Blankfein! Who can bear living in a society where such a thing is possible? Quel horreur![67]

Taibbi continued to say, “From tech stocks to high gas prices, Goldman Sachs has engineered every major market manipulation since the Great Depression — and they’re about to do it again.”[68] Taibbi is right.

Goldman Sachs, the Jewish banking and securities firm, came close to being shut down in 2010, but they cleared the issue by paying $550 million to settle their fraud case.[69] It is well known that Goldman Sachs was implicated in a sex trafficking scandal with Backpage.com—the biggest one in the United States.[70] Taibbi ofRolling Stone wrote in 2010:

“The first thing you need to know about Goldman Sachs is that it’s everywhere. The world’s most powerful investment bank is a great vampire squid wrapped around the face of humanity, relentlessly jamming its blood funnel into anything that smells like money.”[71]

People who ought to be in jailed

People who ought to be in jailed. So far, only Madoff got what he deserved.

Former Goldman Sachs vice president Greg Smith, a Jew himself, quit in 2012 after twelve years because he finally had the guts to say that the firm does not serve people but serves what the New Testament calls Mammon.

Smith declared that in order to get promoted in the company, you have to persuade “your clients to invest in the stocks or other products that we are trying to get rid of because they are not seen as having a lot of potential profit…Get your clients—some of whom are sophisticated, and some of whom aren’t—to trade whatever will bring the biggest profit to Goldman. Call me old-fashioned, but I don’t like selling my clients a product that is wrong for them.”[72]

Smith continues,

“I attend derivative sales meetings where not one single minute is spent asking questions about how we can help clients. It’s purely about how we can make the most possible money off of them.

“If you were an alien from Mars and sat in on one of these meetings, you would believe that a client’s success or progress was not part of the thought process at all. It makes me ill how callously people talk about ripping their clients off. Over the last 12 months I have seen five different managing directors refer to their own clients as ‘muppets,’ sometimes over internal e-mail.”[73]

Smith’s defection caused a lot of damage to the company, for right after his article appeared in the New York Times, Goldman Sachs’ shares dropped 3.4 percent, costing the company $2.15 billion.[74]

While this move prompted some to say that Smith committed career suicide,[75] he is a courageous man, and others have praised his honesty and boldness.[76] Yet Smith has not been the only whistleblower; accusations against Goldman Sachs were already made in 2011 when it was discovered that Goldman Sachs was “exploiting”clients.[77]

POLITICAL AWAKENING

Elizabeth O'Bagy

Elizabeth O’Bagy

But despite the Zionist political power over us, Americans are waking up and beginning to see that they have been lied to.[78] In addition, more and more neoconservative think tanks are beginning to be exposed as hoaxes and propaganda machines. The Elizabeth O’Bagy story is a classic case in point.

The legendary O’Bagy, who served as an analyst for the neoconservative Institute for the Study of War (headed by Jewish neocon Kimberly Kagan) and who was a frequent guest in the Zionist media, kept telling the entire world that she was a Ph.D. student at Georgetown University.

There was one problem: Georgetown had no record of O’Bagy. Once the world knew that she was a joke, the Institute fired her. Here’s the kicker: O’Bagy has been hired by John McCain as a legislative assistant. McCain declared:

“Elizabeth is a talented researcher, and I have been very impressed by her knowledge and analysis in multiple briefings over the last year.”[79]

What probably brought O’Bagy to McCain’s attention was that she had close contacts with Syrian rebel/terrorist organizations and

“her work became widely cited by high-profile figures, including Senator John McCain.

“In a lengthy Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing with Secretary of State John Kerry, Secretary of Defense Chuck Hagel, and General Martin Dempsey, McCain cited ‘Dr. O’Bagy’ extensively, quoting her Wall Street Journal op-ed, in which she argued, ‘the war in Syria is not being waged entirely or even predominately by dangerous Islamists and al-Qaida die-hards.’

“Indeed, the moderate nature of the Syrian rebels is a trope of O’Bagy’s reports for ISW just as it has been in McCain’s calls on the White House to arm the Syrian rebels. It is said that O’Bagy even orchestrated McCain’s trip to Syria to visit rebel commanders.”[80]

John McCain

John McCain

As Ryan Evans of the National Interest rightly puts it,

“Still, we have to give Senator McCain some credit for his consistency. For a few years now, his view of the world has been largely fictional. At least he now employs an effective specialist in foreign-policy fictions.”[81]

Evans is right. In response to McCain’s article on Putin, Russian politician Dmitry Peskov declared that McCain’s piece is “not intelligent.” He continued to say that

“McCain presents himself as a pro-Russian politician, because he is supposed to support the interests of the people against the oppressing authorities.

“This point is so naïve, and it’s so something from the Cold War propaganda arsenal, that it’s even difficult to explain, why the senator of the USA has such primitive thoughts.”[82]

Glenn Greenwald would probably call that “herd behavior.”[83]

McCain is wrapped around “primitive thoughts” because the neo-Bolshevik/Zionist/neoconservative dream is primitive in its ideological and political form. Those “primitive thoughts” want to drag the world to the Zionist guillotine where millions upon millions will be screaming for their lives like slaughtered chickens.

Perhaps it is time to put those Zionists out of jobs. Perhaps it is time to put them on trial for their crimes against humanity. Let the trial begin!

Narcotics: Business of Western wars

 

Container trucks carrying NATO supplies are seen parked at the Pakistani town of Chaman, before being moved to Afghanistan, July 27, 2012. Container trucks carrying NATO supplies are seen parked at the Pakistani town of Chaman, before being moved to Afghanistan, July 27, 2012.

By Gordon Duff and Press TV

 

“Heroin trafficking is the lubrication that keeps the wheels of Western politics moving as intended.”

It was only a week ago that the US government released Eric Harroun, a former soldier who had been fighting with foreign backed al-Qaeda terrorists and the CIA against the Assad government in Syria.

This week, former Army sergeant Joseph Hunter and a group of other veterans, one from Germany’s armed forces, were arrested for much the same thing, offering “security services” for Colombian drug cartels.

Were worldwide press censorship to ease, the public would learn that America’s drone program is used more for maintaining control of drug production and distribution than terrorism. In fact, according to Russian officials, heroin from Afghanistan, all produced and exported under unspoken but very public approval of US officials, killed over one million people last year.

Drug production, when examined using economic modeling, makes oil racketeering and arms trafficking seem primitive in comparison.

No technology is used, fertilizer financed through IMF programs, poppy fields irrigated through USAID programs, heroin processed in German-built labs, shipped on American truck convoys or CIA-leased aircraft, distributed around the world at 10,000% profit.

The CIA has been doing this since the early 1980s and, as every sane person in the world knows, built the drug empire in Afghanistan, the largest in the world.

THE GAME

By “security,” we mean killings, in this case, the group had actually been hired by Americans law enforcement posing as Colombian drug dealers. (usually, such “busts” are intended to rectify marketing “irregularities” through eliminating competition)

Their job was to murder anyone, including drug enforcement officers, public officials and their family members, even the president of the United States, if asked.

There is a problem with all of this, perhaps more than one problem.

Isn’t this exactly what thousands of Americans, members of the military, the intelligence services, thugs working for USAID and NGOs, have been doing all along.

Political power of the drug

America’s government faces a shutdown, this time because powerful banks and insurance companies feel their profits and political power threatened by health care laws that regulate their long despicable practices.

The members of congress paid by the insurance and health care racketeers were, in dozens of cases, put into office by drug money laundered through offshore accounts controlled for them by former presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

This marriage of power, the narcotics lobby, the pro-war lobby, particularly McCain, Graham and Lieberman, is also the heart of the Israel lobby.

Before the last election, in meetings with the former head of the FBI’s drug task force, I was given documents outlining ties between top Republican Party officials and the Mexican drug cartels, which are currently terrorizing over a dozen American states.

OUR MORMON BROTHERS

Gangs of killers employed by these cartels, fully supported by the Republican Party, control most of America’s southwest region and are closely partnered with the LDS (Latter Day Saints) religious sect.

They have set up their own “kingdom,” called “Deseret” inside the United States where they have married religious rule with organized crime.

The Kingdom of Deseret still exists, a region covering nearly 18% of the United States, extending from the Mexican border to the snowy peaks of Idaho.

Citizens of Deseret control much of the FBI and CIA, gambling operations in Las Vegas and have enjoyed over a century of partnership with lawless elements in Mexico.

Extremists among the Deseret hierarchy boast of controlling America’s naval vessels operating in the Mediterranean and Persian Gulf and of their ability to access nuclear weapons.

This is the group that controls the NSA. The NSA’s $4 billion “fusion center” is being constructed in Utah, an LDS-controlled region, “ground zero” for the Kingdom of Deseret.

Background

As early as the 1840s, the LDS terrorized wagon trains heading across the west, kidnapping women, murdering all others.

Within their own community, they maintained control through “Avenging Angels,” assassins that enforced religious doctrine and hierarchical control, though murder. This system still exists.

It was the model for America’s current privatization model, with mercenary groups answerable to extremist organizations and racketeers, all paid for by American taxpayers, running drugs, delivering poison gas to al-Qaeda and orchestrating terror attacks.

In the late 1800s, the LDS or “Mormons” as they are called, fled to Mexico after an unsuccessful war against the United States. There, they formed alliances with bandits and revolutionaries along the border, groups that have now “morphed” into the drug cartels of today.

Those relationships are alive and well today and extend through the heart of America’s financial centers and controlling America’s lower legislative body, the House of Representatives.

Key members of that organization enjoy huge financial benefits from offshore accounts that were made public during the last election, made public and then forgotten.

CARTEL PARTNERS

This power is used in combination with the Israeli AIPAC lobby to support NSA spying and widespread manipulation of financial markets, particularly using the mass of proprietary data gleaned through spying and given to Israel through the recently publicized Memorandum of Understanding.

Call this a “front row ticket” to controlling all financial transactions, technology and intellectual property of the United States, controlling and peddling around the world through open and legalized “piracy.”

Afghanistan

The war in Afghanistan has made the power of the narcotics lobby over America’s military, intelligence and governmental organizations more than obvious.

The narcotics cartels obviously control America’s media.

During the 12 years of American rule, Afghanistan has gone from a nearly drug free nation under the Taliban to a country of addicts and the producer of over 95% of the world’s refined heroin.

Even the United Nations has been warned off, no longer even reporting heroin production in Afghanistan. America talks about its anti-drug efforts though former US envoy, Richard Hollbrooke, openly admitted that narcotics production was key to America’s policy in Afghanistan.

No one has spoken of it since.

Invisible drug empire

Two weeks ago, the US government sentenced an African American soldier, a West Point graduate, to prison for involvement in the heroin trade in Afghanistan. From Navy Times:

“A West Point graduate and former Army captain busted for trafficking heroin from Afghanistan to the U.S. was sentenced Sept. 4 to 10 years in a federal prison. Saleem Akbar Sharif, 36, of Johns Island, S.C., also agreed to surrender $100,000 in drug profits. He pleaded guilty last year to conspiracy and possession with intent to distribute heroin.”

There is a problem here.

The US government has never admitted that heroin is produced in Afghanistan. They claim only opium paste is produced.

For a West Point graduate to be arrested for making only $100,000 selling narcotics, the crime should have been laziness and inefficiency.

No document has ever admitted any heroin production in Afghanistan, there are no records, and, in particular, not one photograph of any heroin production facility.

The US has never found one, in its “war on drugs.” Similarly, the US never found WMD’s in Iraq or the dozen or more massive underground bunker complexes Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld cited when advocating an American invasion of Afghanistan.

In a televised interview with Tim Russert, Rumsfeld spoke of facilities that housed thousands, underground monorails, storage of armored vehicles, entire cities underground.
YouTube – Veterans Today –

He supplied a graphic, not entirely unlike the cartoon Netanyahu held in his hands while humiliating himself before the UN general assembly in his diatribe about Iran’s nuclear energy program.

But heroin production does exist.

Yet, chemicals used to produce heroin are shipped into Afghanistan at US government expense labeled “dry cleaning supplies.”

The same containers leave through the Pakistani port of Karachi, laden with processed heroin, or so top security officials in Pakistan have told me.

These containers, unnumbered and unregistered, move under the full authority of the United States government.

If you check the Internet, looking for news of anti-drug operations or photographs posted on social network sites, you will never see opium transported, never see heroin processing facilities, never see a container loaded or a plane packed with heroin flown out to NATO headquarters in Brussels to be unloaded.

In a dozen years, there has been no evidence published, none sought and much suppressed.

This is the power of the private and not so private armies that protect and defend the world’s narcotics traffickers, a group which includes political leaders, the US, Canada, Britain, France, Israel, Switzerland, Turkey, certainly Afghanistan but more, so many more.

Heroin trafficking is the lubrication that keeps the wheels of Western politics moving as intended.

Naziyahu and Obama Seek “The Truth”

NOVANEWS

The world must stand up to and stop Israel’s bullying of its neighbors and of the U.S. leadership, or the irrational men that run Israel will trigger catastrophe.

by James M Wall

Obama and Netanyahu March 13 in PM residence

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is in the United States this week, vowing to expose “the truth” about Iran.

The exposure vow from Netanyahu was just the opening barrage in what is expected to be a four-day visit with ample diplomatic fisticuffs.

Obama spoke last week to the United Nations General Assembly and pledged to turn his attention to a pursuit for peace in the Middle East. Specifically, he said he would focus on resolving the issue of Iran’s nuclear development and finding a path to peace between Israel and Palestine.

In Obama’s UN speech he forcefully pointed to the two issues which will consume his diplomatic energies “in the near term”:

America’s diplomatic efforts will focus on two particular issues: Iran’s pursuit of nuclear weapons and the Arab-Israeli conflict. While these issues are not the cause of all the region’s problems, they have been a major source of instability for far too long, and resolving them can help serve as a foundation for a broader peace.

The United States and Iran have been isolated from one another since the Islamic revolution of 1979. This mistrust has deep roots. Iranians have long complained of a history of U.S. interference in their affairs and of America’s role in overthrowing the Iranian government during the Cold War.

On the other hand, Americans see an Iranian government that has declared the United States an enemy and directly or through proxies taken American hostages, killed U.S. troops and civilians, and threatened our ally Israel with destruction.

I don’t believe this difficult history can be overcome overnight. The suspicions run too deep. But I do believe that if we can resolve the issue of Iran’s nuclear program, that can serve as a major step down a long road toward a different relationship, one based on mutual interests and mutual respect.

Say this for Obama; he knows how to slip AIPAC’s talking points into the middle of a peace speech. He did so when he said that Americans see an Iranian government that “has declared the United States an enemy and directly or through proxies taken American hostages, killed U.S. troops and civilians, and threatened our ally Israel with destruction.”

To put the best spin on this statement, we might conclude that Obama is referring to what Americans think about Iran (thanks to Israel’s propaganda that Iran’s primary interest is not its economy but its desire “to wipe Israel off the map”, a false statement.)

Whatever he had in mind by including the misleading, inflammatory bromide that Iran threatens “our ally Israel with destruction”, it was not an appropriate statement for a world leader seeking to bridge a gap that has extended over 34 years.

Look at the facts, Mr. Obama. Iran wants what every other nation wants, a nuclear power system. Does it want a nuclear arms system? Most likely it does, with one good regional reason.

 

 

Israel probably has as many as 200 nuclear war heads.  It has long been understood that nations have no intention of ever using a nuclear bomb. Nukes are deterrents. A nation foolish enough to use one against a nuclear-enemy can expect equal or more response, hence, what kept the peace in the Cold War between the U.S. and the Soviet Union was MAD, mutually assured destruction.

The irrationality of a small country like Iran building a single bomb and using it to “destroy Israel”,  thereby evoking enough nuclear bombs into Iran to eradicate forever a country that until 1924 was the Persian Empire, staggers the imagination. When Netanyahu spoke Tuesday to the United Nations General Assembly, he made assertions like this sentence from the transcript reported by MJ Rosenberg:

“Today our hope for the future is challenged by a nuclear-armed Iran that seeks our destruction.”

open-secrets-israeli-foreign-nuclear-policies-israel-shahak-paperback-cover-art

In this one sentence, Netanyahu lays out his full-fledged paranoia, a belief that Iran would commit national suicide because it hates Jews.

  He also fails to support his allegation that Iran is “nuclear-armed”.

It is not.  Pray for the Israeli people who have reelected a man with these views.

The fact that Netanyahu continues as prime minister of a major industrial power is frightening. Paranoia on a scale this large, with at least 80 nuclear bombs awaiting use, is a major, major argument for eradicating all nuclear arms worldwide.

The New York Times asked veteran diplomat Gary Sick for a comment on Netanyahu’s speech.  Sick was polite but obviously surprised:

Gary G. Sick, a former National Security Council staff member who specializes in Iran and who is now a research scholar at Columbia University, said he saw in Mr. Netanyahu’s speech a somewhat ineffective attempt to abort the momentum that Mr. Rouhani had sought to build.

“He was so anxious to make everything look as negative as possible he actually pushed the limits of credibility,” he said, noting that it seemed incongruous after Mr. Rouhani’s diplomatic overtures and President Obama’s cautious responses. “It really is jarring to see that, the extreme element, and how far he was willing to push it. He did himself harm by his exaggerations.”

The nuclear arms race is the most destructive, immoral, impractical, suicidal components of the world’s military obsessions.  All nuclear arms should all be banned. Unfortunately, in the realpolitik of the 21st century, the chances of a nuclear arm ban are slim to none.

Barack Obama has to be aware of the irrational views of Netanyahu.  So it is that when Obama enters the world political boxing ring, he enters with an 800-pound gorilla on his back, a potent political force that keeps whispering in his ear, “is this good for Israel”?

A gorilla? Yes, a gorilla, which is one way to describe a particular reality whose name must not be spoken, even though it influences whatever is going on in the room of world politics, corporate strategy meetings or a marriage counseling session. The gorilla is always there, but as in the Harry Potter books, his name “must not be spoken”.

 

 

The leader of the world’s sole remaining super power functions in politics, domestic and foreign, with no reference to Israel’s political prisoners, its checkpoints, its home demolitions, or its repressive occupation. Because President Obama does not speak “the name” except in the lofty phrase, “our ally”, Obama focuses on Iran’s nuclear program as something that concerns him.

Of course, the nation it really concerns is Obama’s 800-pound gorilla which succeeded in getting Iraq neutered as a troublesome neighbor and is eager to do the same now with Iran and Syria.

Sykes-Picot agreement  300 X 300

Israel seems to be redrafting the Sykes-Picot agreement originally written at the close of World War I.  It was a plan (shown at left) which two Western diplomats, Sir Mark Sykes, of Great Britain, and Georges Picot, of France, designed to create new Middle East national borders for the benefit of victorious Western colonial powers.

Israel, one of the world’s leading nuclear powers, wants to make the Middle East nuclear-free, with the exception of Israel, of course.

The best way to accomplish this, from Israel’s perspective, is to break up many states into smaller, weaker “tribal states” which would pose no military threat to the reigning Middle East power, Israel.

Obama’s speech did not deal with new borders. Rather he revealed a distressing willingness to provide preferential treatment to Israel in the region:

Since I took office, I’ve made it clear in letters to the supreme leader in Iran and more recently to President Rouhani that America prefers to resolve our concerns over Iran’s nuclear program peacefully — although we are determined to prevent Iran from developing a nuclear weapon.  .  . So these statements made by our respective governments should offer the basis for a meaningful agreement. We should be able to achieve a resolution that respects the rights of the Iranian people while giving the world confidence that the Iranian program is peaceful.

But to succeed, conciliatory words will have to be matched by actions that are transparent and verifiable.  After all, it’s the Iranian government’s choices that have led to the comprehensive sanctions that are currently in place. .  .  .

Obama does not call for the abolishment of all nuclear weapons in the Middle East or the world, for that matter, though he has spoken of the need for just such an ideal development.

He only wants to keep Iran from having its own private stash. And to pressure Iran into voluntarily giving up its nuclear ambitions the U.S. government has implemented, along with other world powers, increasingly stringent economic sanctions against Iran.

As a result, Iran’s economy is feeling the pressure. In his speech, which had many positive elements, Obama adopted a parental or empirical tone, telling Iran it had brought those ugly “comprehensive sanctions” on itself.

But I want to be clear. We are encouraged that President Rouhani received from the Iranian people a mandate to pursue a more moderate course, and given President Rouhani’s stated commitment to reach an agreement, I am directing John Kerry to pursue this effort with the Iranian government in close cooperation with the European Union, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Russia and China.

The roadblocks may prove to be too great, but I firmly believe the diplomatic path must be tested.

MJ Rosenberg knows that the U.S. and Iran leaders are on the “same page” at this moment in history. He is also a realist who understands Israel’s political ambitions.

Both leaders would like to see the nuclear issue resolved and the crushing sanctions removed. Rosenberg, a former AIPAC staffer who long ago departed from AIPAC’s clutches, writes about the thawed U.S.–Iranian relationship:

This is a major breakthrough – as anyone who has paid even a little attention over the past 34 years knows.

However, I do not see this process leading anywhere because the Netanyahu government and its lobby, the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), are determined to end the process and they have the ability to do it.

They intend to use the United States Congress to cause Rouhani to abandon negotiations by making clear that Congress will accept nothing short of an Iranian surrender on nuclear issues. Unlike President Obama who wants to ensure that Iran’s nuclear program is not used to produce weapons, the lobby, which writes the laws imposing sanctions on Iran, insists that Iran give up its nuclear program entirely.

AIPAC listed its demands in a statement last week. Its bottom line is this:

Congress must not consider lifting economic sanctions until the Iranians stop uranium enrichment, stop work on installing new centrifuges, allow international inspection of nuclear sites, and move out of the country its stockpile of highly enriched uranium. In contrast to the administration which, recognizing that Iran (like every other country) has the right to nuclear power for peaceful purposes, AIPAC says that Iran has no such right. (Israel, of course, has a large stockpile of nuclear weapons but, hey, that’s different.)

Not only that, if Iran does not agree to total nuclear surrender, “The United States must support Israel’s right to act against Iran if it feels compelled—in its own legitimate self-defense—to act.”

In his essay for Foreign Policy, “Maximum Bibi”, Daniel Levy writes about the new Iranian leader who gives strong signals that he is ready to negotiate the nuclear issue:

This debate has taken on a new urgency given the diplomatic opening seemingly created by the election of Rouhani. It is no secret that Netanyahu has been dragged out of his comfort zone by the possibility of a U.S.–Iran rapprochement. Former President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad’s aggressive and insulting behavior made him a convenient adversary for Israel; Rouhani and his diplomatic team, notably polished Foreign Minister Javad Zarif, present a challenge of a very different order of magnitude.

Levy clarifies the obvious: Ahmadinejad, who has a Tea Party “shoot from the mouth” political style, enjoys the limelight as a troublemaker. Israel’s talented propagandists took advantage of Ahmadinejad’s barnyard strutting, and gleefully made him the face of all things Iranian.

Ahmadinejad was easily Israel’s favorite leader.  He was tailor-made for generating the Israel-as-victim trope.

But today, Ahmadinejad is old news. Better that we focus this week on President Obama who wants to revolve conflict without war, facing off against Prime Minister Netanyahu, who wants to shove the U.S. into yet another Middle East war, for Israel’s benefit.

Sykes-Picot was a colonial, exploitative agreement that guaranteed instability in the Middle East for generations to come. Reshaping the same region for Israel’s benefit would be nothing less than Sykes–Picot Redux.
