America’s “Nonconventional War” against Syria: Western Media Narrative Enters into Comedy Act

NOVANEWS
Global Research

“If all the world is a stage,” as William Shakespeare once said, then the current mainstream media narrative on Syria must be the comedy act; this time, however, it isn’t very funny. Having spent the last three years failing to exert their desire for regime change in Syria, the western imperialist, globalist powers and the corporate financier interests that sustain them are becoming increasingly desperate for a change in the geopolitical tide. Beginning in 2014, they have constantly attempted to leverage any potential outlet as a means of toppling Assad and proceeding in the implementation of their hegemonic agenda across the Middle East and Eurasia.

One example was their attempt to spin the Geneva II communiqué to falsely imply that it mandated Assad should step down. This was done in context to the fact that the Syrian National Council was vastly shedding any remaining legitimacy it may have had; one must not forget an excellent Guardian piece by Charlie Skelton titled, “The Syrian Opposition: Whose Doing the Talking?”, which documented the clear connections between the leading Syrian National Council front-group members and western corporate-financier interest. By January 2014, many members were resigning over the illegitimacy of the council as noted by Nile Bowie who stated:

In a recent letter explaining his resignation, former SNC Secretary-General Mustafa al-Sabbagh concedes that the organization failed to extend humanitarian relief efforts and to make any political or military progress; he describes the SNC as “a body that is entirely separate from the Syrian domestic arena.” Former member Mohammad Bassam Imadi’s description is no less critical; he stated in a recent interview that the SNC “…was only some expatriates who were living outside Syria, they lost touch with reality in Syria. They didn’t know what was going on…They thought that within a few months they will become presidents or ministers so they were not interested in doing anything other than contacting the foreign powers…”

The Issue of “Moderate Rebels”

That was in January 2014. It was in this context that the increasingly militant Syrian opposition forces on the ground were increasingly being exposed as primarily driven by Al Qaeda aligned militants that were the outgrowth of western financing and geopolitical posturing. Whatever multiplicity of identities and splinter groups that exist among the opposition on the ground, the primary driving force had become the Islamists as noted in the New York Times’ Islamist Rebels Create Dilemma on Syria Policy.” As the article notes, “Even the Supreme Military Council, the umbrella rebel organization whose formation the West had hoped would sideline radical groups, is stocked with commanders who want to infuse Islamic law into a future Syrian government.

Furthermore, Reuters has admitted that the military command of the allegedly moderate, western-backed Free Syrian Army (FSA), is dominated by Islamists. One has yet to name me any viable moderate opposition force on the ground of sizable influence that is not in one way or another tied to Islamist groups from Al Qaeda’s Syrian franchise Jabhat Al-Nusra to the Islamic Front which is heavily active on the ground. The paradigm presented in the mainstream media depicting a distinction between jihadis, who are described as being small-numbered and mostly foreign, and indigenous “democracy” factions is patently false. An 2012 interview with Omar Gharba’, a Wahhabi cleric and member of the US-backed “Free Syrian Army” (FSA) who had previously been seen smashing a statue of the Virgin Mary in Idlib, demonstrates clearly the FSA mentality

The FSA boasts various unorganized brigades that serve as a magnet for extremist foot-soldiers including the “Osama Bin Laden Brigade” of the Souqour Dimashq (Hawks of Damascus) Battalion in the FSA. Furthermore, one must not ignore the role of western intelligence in propping up and commandeering the FSA as was a cknowledged by Saddam al-Jamal, leader of the FSA Eastern Front and a member of the FSA Staff Board or Supreme Military Council who defected to join the even more extremist entity, the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant/Syria (ISIL/ISIS). His previous involvement with the Supreme Military Council umbrella group is particularly notable considering the New York Times’ statement that its formation was anticipated by the west for potentially playing a role in sidelining the radicals; on the contrary, it is “stocked with commanders who want to infuse Islamic law into a future Syrian government.”

The FSA, touted as the west’s last hope against the radicals, frequently cooperates with the Al-Qaeda “Jabhat Al-Nusra” as was done in the Christian town of Sadad in late November 2013. Prominent rebel leader Jamal Maarouf of the Syrian Revolutionary Front (SRF), seen as moderate by the west, admitted toThe Independent that he carries out joint operations with Al Qaeda and has no problem with them; he said, “this is a problem outside of Syria.”

Syrian Christians have also been severely affected because of the inherent extremism that characterizes the militarized Syrian opposition Syrian Catholic Archbishop Jacques Behnan Hindo expressed dissatisfaction with US support for Islamist force in an interview with the French-language station, KTO, of the Archbishop of Paris. New York Times’ Christians Squeezed Out by Violent Struggle in North Syria documents the plight of Syrian Christians, particularly in the east, that were fleeing from Arab Islamist rebel gangs. The rebels were also noted to be heavily entrenched in the refugee camps in Turkey who would force young men in groups of 20 to 30 to be drafted into their armed groups. Kurdish militias that controlled the region were seen as preferable to the rebels.

Another point amiss in the mainstream media narrative is with regards to the beginning and nature of the crisis in Syria. The mainstream media attempts to imply the Syrian uprising began as a peaceful, nonviolent struggle that was subsequently suppressed by a violent crackdown by the government. Missed in this simplistic, reductionist approach is the broader reality of a concerted, foreign-sponsored insurrection, with the opposition being armed and violent from the beginning. Numerous reports establish this including Sharmine Narwani’s reportSyria: The Hidden Massacre which notes the armed nature of the uprising form the beginning. Murdered Dutch Priest Father Frans van der Lugt , working on the ground in Syria and having lived there since 1966, had made similar points clearly undermining the western narrative through various publications he has made. Among his most critical conclusions was that

From the start, the protest movements were not purely peaceful. From the start I saw armed demonstrators marching along in the protests, who began to shoot at the police first. Very often the violence of the security forces has been a reaction to the brutal violence of the armed rebels.

He also concluded regarding media coverage of the situation:

In the first place, it has to be said that it is very difficult to provide a nuanced and objective account of what is happening. Many journalists fall into describing matters in black and white. For them, good and evil are not interwoven, but are clearly separated. They demonize the one side and glorify the other. Thus, for example, it is not true that our [the Syrian] government has only bad sides and the opposition only good ones. But because the US, Europe and certain Arab countries support the opposition, they endeavor, whether consciously or unconsciously, to idealize it as much as possible, without engaging in any careful analysis of the real situation. Certain interests are obscuring our view of the real situation and contaminating the description of it.

An independent investigative mission by the Arab League, comprising of over 160 monitors in November 2011 produced a reality different from media exaggerations and spin put forth by the opposition. Unsurprisingly, the report was buried by Qatar, who along with Saudi Arabia, was working with the west and proxies in Lebanon to undermine and overthrow the Syrian government and spread their hegemony across the Middle East.

The Council on Foreign Relations, one of the corporate-financier think-tanks that drive US and NATO foreign policy also admitted:

The Syrian rebels would be immeasurably weaker today without al-Qaeda in their ranks. By and large, Free Syrian Army (FSA) battalions are tired, divided, chaotic, and ineffective. Feeling abandoned by the West, rebel forces are increasingly demoralized as they square off with the Assad regime’s superior weaponry and professional army. Al-Qaeda fighters, however, may help improve morale. The influx of jihadis brings discipline, religious fervor, battle experience from Iraq, funding from Sunni sympathizers in the Gulf, and most importantly, deadly results. In short, the FSA needs al-Qaeda now.

The Dire Significance

It is significant to belabor this point in light of recent statements by the US that it was pledging $500 million to the Syrian opposition, an absolute moral outrage considering the systematic dismantling of the Syrian state that the rebels had done, carrying out the directive of their western backers. Political football issues thrown around in the media about whether the US should go back into Iraq or not or whether we should have armed the Syrian rebels earlier or not misses the point and poses a danger to humanity as a whole.

The point is the fact that the US had been funding Syrian opposition groups since 2005 under Bush as revealed by Wikileak cables. Obama is essentially carrying out “Bush’s wars” in the Middle East through a different political cover; however, it would be erroneous to describe these as simply “Bush’s wars” but rather the wars of a corporate-financier elite that dominates the west and whose agenda has been coming full circle since 1991, merely disguised with updated political spin to cater to the dominant public opinion.

Democracy in the west has become rule by intellectual confusion; imperialism is a system that has evolved to grant global corporate-financier domination in all major world theaters, with the Middle East being the pivotal theater to secure access into Eurasia and secure western hegemony versus Russia and China which is the stated objective of former National Security Advisor Zbigniew Brezinzski’s “The Grand Chessboard and the Neo-Conservatives’Rebuilding America’s Defenses.” “Pax Americana” is the phrase employed by the Neo-Cons but can we honestly say that what we are observing today from Libya to Syria is in anyway making the world more peaceful?

Enter the Jester

The media jester here enters the world with foolishness that is incredibly transparent to those who are aware of the reality at play. The comedy act is that the Syrian rebels were deliberately transformed into the extremist hordes that they are now, not by deliberate financing by the west, but by Assad collaborating with the extremists against the moderates and seculars. This has become official US State Department dogma; the claim had appeared around January 2014 in the The Telegraph and has been repeated by Al Jazeera who stated:

Sources told the UK-based newspaper that the aim of the double game played by Assad was to convince Western countries that the Syrian uprising was sponsored by “Islamist militants” in order to hinder international support for it.

“Jabhat al-Nusra, and the even more extreme Islamic State of Iraq and al-Shams (ISIS), the two al-Qaeda affiliates operating in Syria, have both been financed by selling oil and gas from wells under their control to and through the regime, The Daily Telegraph quoted an anonymous intelligence source as saying.

“The regime is paying al-Nusra to protect oil and gas pipelines under al-Nusra’s control in the north and east of the country, and is also allowing the transport of oil to regime-held areas,” the source was quoted as saying. “We are also now starting to see evidence of oil and gas facilities under ISIS control.”

The Daily Telegraph also reported that Syrian military defectors and rebels said that the government “deliberately released militant prisoners” who joined the extremist groups that are combating moderate rebel forces.

This is hardly reliable considering that the sources included western intelligence officials and anonymous, unverifiable activist accounts which in context to other, well-documented facts, makes them unconvincing. Dr. Joshua Landis, who is hardly a pro-Assad figure, does an excellent job at poking holes in some of the specifics of these accusations but misses some significant points. In reality, it is the west that has deliberately created the political context that made the rise of Islamists in Syria and across the greater Middle East possible. Pulitzer-Prize winning investigative reporter Seymour Hersh documented in his 2007 piece in the New Yorker titled The Redirection” that the US government, then under Bush, was working with Saudi Arabia and the Hariri political faction in Lebanon to undermine Syria and Iran’s influence in the region through the means of playing upon sectarian and ethnic lines to reorient the region in their own image. Let’s not forget that it has the European Union who had lifted its oil embargo on Syria in order to purchase oil from oil fields clearly documented to be held by Islamist rebels in a bid to further their destabilization of Syria.

Tony Cartalucci has written extensively of the implications of Hersh’s work in the context of Syria today, citing very prophetic quotes from The Redirection that predicted the engineered quagmire today. As Cartalucci revealed, Seymour Hersh notes:

“To undermine Iran, which is predominantly Shiite, the Bush Administration has decided, in effect, to reconfigure its priorities in the Middle East. In Lebanon, the Administration has coöperated with Saudi Arabia’s government, which is Sunni, in clandestine operations that are intended to weaken Hezbollah, the Shiite organization that is backed by Iran. The U.S. has also taken part in clandestine operations aimed at Iran and its ally Syria. A by-product of these activities has been the bolstering of Sunni extremist groups that espouse a militant vision of Islam and are hostile to America and sympathetic to Al Qaeda.” The Redirection, Seymour Hersh

Hersh’s report would also note:

“Robert Baer, a former longtime C.I.A. agent in Lebanon, has been a severe critic of Hezbollah and has warned of its links to Iranian-sponsored terrorism. But now, he told me, “we’ve got Sunni Arabs preparing for cataclysmic conflict, and we will need somebody to protect the Christians in Lebanon. It used to be the French and the United States who would do it, and now it’s going to be Nasrallah and the Shiites” –The Redirection, Seymour Hersh

On the role of the Hariri faction, much was noted in the fact that Lebanon would be used as a staging ground to organize Sunni militants to undermine Syria. Also included is the fact that Walid Jumblatt, a Druze member of the Hariri faction, would meet with Dick Cheney in 2006 and recommend using the Muslim Brotherhood in any attempt to undermine Assad. Hersh noted how US support was already helping the Islamists:

There is evidence that the Administration’s redirection strategy has already benefitted the Brotherhood. The Syrian National Salvation Front is a coalition of opposition groups whose principal members are a faction led by Abdul Halim Khaddam, a former Syrian Vice-President who defected in 2005, and the Brotherhood. A former high-ranking C.I.A. officer told me, “The Americans have provided both political and financial support. The Saudis are taking the lead with financial support, but there is American involvement.” He said that Khaddam, who now lives in Paris, was getting money from Saudi Arabia, with the knowledge of the White House. (In 2005, a delegation of the Front’s members met with officials from the National Security Council, according to press reports.) A former White House official told me that the Saudis had provided members of the Front with travel documents.

And as if to dispel any claims by critics who fail the read the report in its entirety and try to claim that this support is passive and not active, Hersh noted:

“…[Saudi Arabia’s] Bandar and other Saudis have assured the White House that “they will keep a very close eye on the religious fundamentalists. Their message to us was ‘We’ve created this movement, and we can control it.’ It’s not that we don’t want the Salafis to throw bombs; it’s who they throw them at—Hezbollah, Moqtada al-Sadr, Iran, and at the Syrians, if they continue to work with Hezbollah and Iran.” –The Redirection, Seymour Hersh

What must be noted is the intimate relationship of Saudi Arabian interests to the corporate-financier, globalist interests in the west and the joint-investment by both forces to perpetuate their hegemony across the Middle East at the expense of Iranian, Chinese, and Russian influence. Saudi Arabia is also the primary underwriter of Islamist forces in the world, financing the most violent of groups, and is used as a “Swiss Army knife” to undermine nations against the western geopolitical objective from Mali to Pakistan. Also to be noted is that Dick Cheney is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR) as well Hillary Clinton, both who carried out the same agenda of undermining Syria under two supposedly different political administrations. Hillary Clinton has basically admitted that the CFR runs American policy, a fact that has been documented in the work of renowned Dr. Carroll Quigley in Tragedy and Hope.”

Democrats and Republicans; in terms of mainstream foreign policy and who benefits, there is no different. The US has a historic role in supporting groups like the Muslim Brotherhood against secular nationalist leaders to destabilize targeted countries. There is also the role of color revolutions used to create protest movements through US government and corporate funded NGOs that capitalize on legitimate social dissent in places like the Middle East to push forward proxies into power (see also The Revolution Business). When that fails, you get armed insurgencies; a classic case study of this was the NATO destabilization of Libya and the manner in which the media attempted to spin it on political lines as documented in this article, along with its connection to Syria.

Breaking Free From the Matrix

The reality is clear before us. We can continue to entertain the media jester fooling our intelligence with acts of intellectual comedy and foolery or we can rise up and say no more and work to spread true information at the grassroots level. The establishment does not seek what is in our interest and the western corporate-financier agenda is not only the enemy of those it attacks in the east but also its own people it is fooling and robbing in the west.

The way to undermine this agenda is to boycott the corporate interests driving it and replace them with local, self-sufficient options outside of the global economic scam of corporatized globalization. That is the only way to reclaim political power and redistribute it into the hands of the people. Otherwise, we are only spinning a political hamster wheel of faux-democracy, depriving us of the right of sovereignty under the very illusion that we have it. We must tip the balance of power in our favor. Otherwise, the media jester will continue dancing on the world stage before our eyes and mocking our intelligence with its foolishness. It is an act of intellectual comedy so detached from reality that those who are awake almost feel to urge to laugh but are stopped by the thought of the utter depravity that has become the current world order.

Wajeeda, 62-years-old, in Aida refugee camp, with a granddaughter.

There are more than five million Palestinian refugees registered with the United Nations, making up the largest group of refugees in the world. The Palestinian refugee advocacy group BADIL estimates there are an additional 2.7 million unregistered Palestinian refugees, making up 66 percent of the Palestinian population worldwide.

They have been waiting more than sixty years to exercise their right to return since their first mass forced displacement with the ethnic cleansing of Palestine by Zionist forces in 1948, what Palestinians call the Nakba or catastrophe, during the establishment of the State of Israel.

Five generations since then, many Palestinian refugees today live in poor conditions in crowded camps. The stateless are among the most vulnerable, as their plight in Syria continues to show.

With the conviction that the right of return is not a side issue but is at the core of the so-called conflict, this series depicts a Palestinian refugee child with a grandparent, a first-generation refugee. Through it I hope to emphasize not only the duration of the plight of Palestinian refugees, but also to visualize the extraordinary bond and solidarity that Palestinian refugees share across generations, preserving their dignity and determination during the long wait and fight for justice.

I first worked on this series in 2008 but I had left it buried and unfinished in my archive. Although I have worked for years in these camps and know how central the issue of Palestinian refugees are, I put it aside as there were always developments in Palestine that seemed more urgent.

This series questions the way the “conflict” is portrayed and how a core issue remains largely left out of the story, leaving the plight of millions of Palestinians in a perpetual state of uncertainty and invisibility.

As the first generation of refugees and the immediate survivors of the Nakba become fewer in number, it is more urgent than ever to bring their histories back to the center of the discourse on Palestine.

Wajeeda, the woman in the photo above, told me: ”I remember when we were under the tent [after the 1948 Nakba]. It was a very small tent for four persons but we were seven children there. There were only six toilets for hundreds of people. The life was very bad. I know that to return to the homeland is just a dream but I still hope for these children of the new generation to return.”

Mohammad, 83 years old, lives in al-Azzeh camp, the smallest in the West Bank and where the unemployment rate is high. “I cannot explain my feelings with one sentence,” he says. “Those who have no country have no dignity. I have no dignity. I always think of the past. Life was better then. We had our land. Now if you don’t work, you don’t eat. I feel angry. I was a fighter against the British and the Zionists. If I had the strength to fight, I will fight the Palestinian leaders.”

It was a simple life but we did not need any help from other people or institutions. I could go back once to Beit Jibrin, and when I saw that everything was destroyed I felt very sad.”

Our family owned 1,000 dunums [a dunum is the equivalent of 1,000 square meters]. We had fifty goats, twenty-five cows, two camels and fifty hens. When the Israeli soldiers entered the Palestinian villages, they shot everywhere and we were afraid. When I heard that my friend and his wife were killed, I became even more afraid and I hid myself and my family in a well for one night. For two years we had been going from one place to another. Once I was able to return to my village, five years after we left. Everything was destroyed, including my home. I just found two dogs that I knew before and they recognized me. I was very sad when I saw all the destruction.”

Gaza mothers face another Ramadan without their imprisoned sons

NOVANEWS

140627-nidal-alsarfiti-gaza.jpg

Nidal al-Sarfiti is one of many parents facing another Ramadan with a loved one behind Israeli bars.

Najat al-Agha, known as Um Diya, is in her sixties and shows up every week outside the offices of the International Committee of the Red Cross in Gaza City.

Every Monday, mothers, fathers, wives and children of Palestinians held in Israeli prisons gather there to demand the freedom of their loved ones.

There are currently more than five thousand Palestinians in Israeli prisons, including hundreds in administrative detention — held without charge or trial by Israeli military court orders.

Al-Agha’s son Diya has already served 22 years of a life sentence. He was accused in 1992 of storming an Israeli settlement and killing an Israeli army officer, she says.

“Diya was supposed to be released as part of last year’s agreement between the Palestinian Authority and Israel to release dozens of those detained before the Oslo accords were signed in 1993,” Um Diya said, referring to the peace agreement signed by Israel and the Palestine Liberation Organization. She held portraits of Diya and Muhammad, a second son who is also imprisoned by Israel.

Israel had agreed to release 104 long-term Palestinian prisoners as part of a US-brokered deal to resume negotiations. After releasing 78 men in three groups, Israel unilaterally reneged on releasing the final group in March.

Diya al-Agha was supposed to be among the last released.

Muhammad al-Agha is in the eleventh year of a twelve-year sentence. “My son Muhammad was accused of engaging in the second intifada that broke out in 2000,” Um Diya said.

Constant grief

140627-um-diya-gaza.jpg

Um Diya holds a poster of her two sons in Israeli jail.

Visibly emotional, Um Diya spoke about the agony of her sons’ absence. 

“I am a mother and I have two other grown children, in addition to the ones who are in detention,” she said. “However, over the last long years, I can’t ever remember feeling happy.”

“Every year during Ramadan, when family members gather around for a meal, I stay silent and sad for a few hours before breaking my fast,” she said.

In a few days, Muslims all over the world will mark the month of Ramadan by abstaining completely from food and water from sunrise to sunset.

Um Diya hopes that the Palestinian Authority and international organizations can help bring her sons and other Palestinian detainees home from Israel’s prisons.

She contrasts the lack of attention received by Palestinian prisoners to the spotlight placed on three Israeli youths who went missing while hitchhiking between settlements in the occupied West Bank on 12 June.

Israel claims that the youths were abducted by members of Hamas.

“Can you imagine, three missing settlers have generated sympathy from world leaders for the families of those settlers? We come here to protest weekly, but no seems to be listening,” Um Diya said.

“From 2006 to 2011, Israel banned us from visiting our sons in detention because of the abduction of one soldier, Gilad Shalit. Is that just?”

“Nightmare”

Um Rami Anbar, in her late fifties, also comes to the weekly protest to call for the release of her son Rami. She said that he was “kidnapped” by Israeli forces in 2002 at a checkpoint in the center of the Gaza Strip. Accused of “armed action against Israeli forces,” he was sentenced to eighteen years.

“Rami left behind a wife and a daughter,” his mother said. “I see the six remaining years of his sentence as a nightmare, as if they are sixty years. I have high blood pressure and diabetes. I cannot be sure I will see my son again.”

Rami, his mother said, is her eldest son and acted as the head of the family when his father was jailed by Israel for six years. “When he was only nine, Rami took responsibility for his younger siblings and for me,” Um Rami said.

“I call on all mothers around the world to stand by us, so that our sons are freed,” she added. “I recall when Shalit was abducted in Gaza, the United Nations hosted the parents of Shalit to talk about their ordeal. Why is the world not standing by us?”

Longing to hold a grandchild

Nidal al-Sarfiti wore a neat suit and a Palestinian kuffiyeh — the traditional checkered scarf — around his neck as he took part in Monday’s gathering.

“My son Ali was snatched by the Israeli army in 2000, when he was lining up to get a magnetic ID card to enter Israel,” al-Sarfiti recounted. “The day he was arrested I advised him not go to, because we learned that youths were being arrested when they got to theErez checkpoint seeking work permits.”

But Ali insisted, his father said. “He told me, ‘I got a permit three times already, I don’t think I will be arrested.’” Ali received a lengthy sentence, al-Sarfiti explained, for belonging to the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine, a secular, leftist political party and armed resistance group Israel has deemed illegal.

Al-Sarfiti, a retired civil servant, was also overcome with emotion as he spoke about his son.

“My grandchildren, my daughters and their husbands gather at my home, every year during Ramadan. Despite their pleasant presence, I do not feel pleasant at all,” he said.

“I always wish for the moment that I’ll be able to hold a grandchild from my own son, Ali, especially since I lost two other sons, who died early at an age.”

During feasts such as Eid al-Fitr, marking the end of Ramadan, al-Sarfiti said he feels “bitterly alone” as he pays customary visits to family members without Ali by his side.

He, like the other parents outside the Red Cross offices, faces another Ramadan with a loved one behind Israeli bars.

This video published today shows Israeli activists from the dissident group Boycott from Within disrupting the filming of the new NBC drama show Dig on location in the ethnically cleansed Palestinian coastal city of Jaffa, in present-day Israel.

The activists are greeted with racist slogans by people on the set.

Dig, to be shown on NBC’s cable network USA, has generated strong protests from Palestinians who see it is as part of Israel’s effort to consolidate its control and advance the Judaization of occupied Jerusalem.

Responding to protests from Palestinians, NBC vice president Cory Shields promised last December that the show would not be filmed in Silwan in eastern Jerusalem, a Palestinian neighborhood which Israel’s occupation municipality is in the process of ethnically cleansing.

But NBC has violated this promise and the filming has proceeded in Silwan and other locations targeted for Israeli settlement.

The Israeli government and Jerusalem’s occupation municipality are providing the series a $6.3 million grant. The cast and crew recently met with Minister of Jerusalem and Diaspora Affairs Naftali Bennett, leader of the extreme right-wing nationalist and pro-settler party Habayit Hayehudi (Jewish Home).

Invading the set

Shortly after someone from the film crew calls out “action,” the video shows activists marching on to the set shouting “One, two, three, four occupation no more, five, six, seven eight, we don’t dig apartheid state” and “Shame on you Hollywood! Shame on you NBC!”

The activists, who can be seen carrying large protest banners, are met with a racist response.

They are told to “go to Sudan” and “go to Hizbullah” and in one disturbing moment an extra begins to sing a song in praise of Baruch Goldstein, the American settler who massacred 29 Palestinians at the Ibrahimi mosque in the occupied West Bank city of Hebron in 1994.

Goldstein was killed by survivors defending themselves.

The extra says to camera “I ask for blessings on Baruch Goldstein’s grave… because what he did was self sacrifice. Not because you’ve got to kill Arabs, but because in his action he saved many Jews.”

One of the protestors says: “Our message is that you [NBC] are complicit in Israeli crimes, in whitewashing Israeli crimes with the support and investment of the Jerusalem Municipality and Naftali Bennett.”

This is not the first time opponents of NBC’s complicity in Israeli colonization have made their way on to a Dig set.

Earlier this month Jason Isaacs, the Dig actor who previously starred in several Harry Potter films, was confronted on set as the show filmed on location in eastern occupied Jerusalem.

It remains to be seen whether Isaacs will condemn the kind of racism expressed on the set of his new show.

I$raHell can’t force-feed occupation to those who hunger for freedom

By Jonathan Cook

 Nazareth

For more than a month Israel sought to wriggle off a hook that should have snared it from the start. Two children, 17 and 16, were shot dead during Nakba Day protests near Ramallah, in which youths threw stones ineffectually at well-protected and distant Israeli military positions.

Hundreds of Palestinian children have lost their lives over the years at the end of a sharpshooter’s sights, but the deaths of Nadim Nuwara and Mohammed Abu al-Thahir in Beitunia were not easily forgotten. Israel was quickly cornered by an accumulation of physical and visual evidence.

Israel’s usual denials – the deaths were faked, video footage was doctored, Israeli soldiers were not responsible, the youths provoked the soldiers, no live ammunition was used – have been discredited one by one. Slowly Israel conceded responsibility, if only by falling into a grudging silence.

Murder on film

A CCTV camera mounted on the outer wall of a carpentry shop provided the most damning evidence: it captured the moments when the two unarmed boys were each hit with a live round, in one case as the youth can be seen walking away from the protest area (see video below).

But rather than come to terms with the world as it now is, Israel wants to preserve the way it once was. It believes that through force of will it can keep the tide of accountability at bay in the occupied territories.

There has been no admission of guilt, no search for the guilty soldiers and no reassessment of its policies on crowd control or the use of live fire – let alone on the continuation of the occupation. Instead, 20 soldiers arrived last week at the store in Beitunia, threatened to burn it down, arrested the owner, Fakher Zayed, and ordered he remove the camera that caused so much embarrassment.

According to Israel, the fault lies not with a society where teenage soldiers can choose to swat a Palestinian child as casually as a fly. The problem is with a Palestinian storekeeper, who assumed he could join the modern world.

The nostalgia for a “golden era” of occupation was evident, too, last week in a policy change. Israel has rounded up hundreds of Palestinians in the hunt for three Israeli teenagers missing since 12 June. Palestinian cities like Hebron have been under lockdown for days, and several Palestinians youths killed, while soldiers scour the West Bank.

Officially reintroducing torture

But with the search proving fruitless, Israel’s attorney-general approved the reintroduction of the notorious “ticking bomb” procedure.

In doing so, he turned the clock back 15 years to a time when Israel routinely used torture against prisoners. Israel may not have been alone then in using torture, but it was exceptional in flaunting its torture dungeons alongside claims to democratic conduct.

Only in 1999 did the country’s supreme court severely limit the practice, allowing interrogators one exemption: a suspect could be tortured only if he was a ticking bomb, hiding information of an attack whose immediate extraction could save lives.

Now Israel’s law chief has agreed that the Palestinian politicians, journalists and activists swept up in the latest mass arrests will be treated as “ticking bombs”. Israel’s torture cells are back in business.

Israelis have been lulled into a false sense of security by the promise of endless and simple technical solutions to the ever-mounting problems caused by the occupation.

Force-feeding abductees

This week, Israel’s prime minister, Binyamin Netanyahu, hoped to find another “fix” for Palestinians who refuse to remain supine in the face of their oppression.

Netanyahu is racing through a law to force-feed more than 100 Palestinian prisoners who are two months’ into a hunger strike. The inmates demand that Israel end the common practice of holding prisoners for months and sometimes years without charge, in what is blandly termed “administrative detention”.

Such prisoners, ignorant of their offence, are unable to mount a defence. And as it becomes ever clearer to Palestinian society that Israel is never going to concede Palestinian statehood, things that were once barely tolerated are now seen as unendurable.

Last week, the heads of the World Medical Association urged Israel to halt the legislation, which in a double bill of compulsion will require doctors to sedate and force-feed prisoners to break their hunger strike.

The WMA called the practice “tantamount to torture”. The legislation violates not only the autonomy of the prisoners but the oaths taken by the doctors to work for their patients’ benefit.

The liberal Haaretz newspaper warned that Israel was rushing headlong towards “a new abyss in terms of human rights violations”. And all this to prevent reality pricking the Israeli conscience: that Palestinians would rather risk death than endure the constant indignities of a life under belligerent occupation.

Israelis have yet to realise the dam is soon to burst. They still believe a technical fix is the way to solve ethical dilemmas continuously thrown up by the longest occupation in modern times.

Israel’s technical solutions work to an extent. They confine Palestinians to ever smaller spaces: the prison of Gaza, the city under lockdown, the torture cell, or the doctor’s surgery where a feeding tube can be inserted.

But the craving for self-determination and dignity are more than technical problems. You cannot force-feed a people to still their hunger for freedom.

Belligerent occupations – especially ones where no hope or end is in sight – engender evermore creative and costly forms of resistance, as the hunger strike demonstrates. A physical act of resistance can be temporarily foiled. But the spirit behind it cannot be so easily subdued.

More Aid to ISIS: Zio-Puppet Obama & Jewish Lobby’s Demand for Horrific Bloodshed in Middle East

NOVANEWS

By Dr. David Duke

The new request by President Barack Obama for an increased $500 million “aid” to “rebels” in Syria—which actually means arming the al Qaeda militants in ISIS who threaten the US-supported government in Iraq as well—is a treasonous act which is only understandable in terms of the Jewish Supremacist control and direction of the American government.

The ISIS, al Qaeda offshoot which America has supported and trained in Syria, is now overrunning Iraq! This terrorist organization has promised terrorism and attacks against America as well as Americans anywhere in the world.

Zio-toadie Sen. Graham recently on the CBS Face the Nation program said that ISIS wants to make more 9-11 attacks against America.

Yet, our Zio-controlled talking heads didn’t dare ask him the obvious question. “Then why have you been supporting Syrian terrorists, considering that ISIS and al Nusra, al Qaeda elements dominate the rebel forces?

Hasn’t the U.S. Government prosecuted Americans who have given money to terrorists? Why shouldn’t you and most of the Congress of the United States as well as the President of the United States, Barack Hussein Obama, be prosecuted for treason?”

Treason!

The CNN map below shows the terrorist, al Qaeda organization, ISIS, dominating almost all of the “rebel held” territory in Syria, under the thumb of Zionists who hate Syria because of its strong support of Palestinians, traitors in the United States government have been supporting this al Qaeda offshoot with American money and weapons.

Now they have swept into Iraq as well. Now we are being told that they are planning 9-11 style attacks on United States.

Only when you understand the Zio stranglehold on the American government and media can one know why we have been supporting our supposed worst enemy in Syria.

The Syrian Government has been making great gains against the terrorists and with the end of the horrific bloodshed in sight American Nobel Peace Prize-winning Barack Obama is now sending a half of billion dollars of weapons of mass destruction to the terrorists in Syria to fulfill the Jewish Zionists wish for the slaughter to continue, even escalate.

Iraq-ISIS-mapThere is one obvious reason why America would support the radical terrorists in Iraq against a Western educated medical doctor, Bashar Assad, who has the support of the majority of the citizens of Syria. He has dared to remain a supporter of the Palestinian people and the Hezbollah leaders in Lebanon who successfully defeated the Israeli invaders of Lebanon.

Syria was one of most advanced, secular states in the entire Mideast, as was Iraq. Both nations had flourishing Christian communities, education of women in universities, until the overthrow of Saddam Hussein and the driving out of hundreds of thousands of Iraqi Christians into Syria. Now the combined Christian population of the two nations is in danger of genocide from the mass murderers of ISIS.

The war in Syria has resulted in the persecution of Christians by groups paid for, and armed by the US government.

The war in Syria has resulted in the persecution of Christians by groups paid for, and armed by the US government.

Over a million Christians are in Syria and they all support the government as well as the leading Sunni Cleric of the nation, the Grand Mufti of Syria. The reason why America supported the al Qaeda invaders is simply because Israel wanted to see the successful, anti-Zionist state of Syria destroyed.

Why would America support al Qaeda terrorists and mass murderers, the answer is very, very simple: Because American policy and media is completely dominated by Jewish radicals who don’t give a damn about America. All they care about what they see as Israel’s interests.

There is simply no other reason why the American government would send even more money, arms and training, to the “Syrian rebels”—who, as everyone around the world knows, are completely dominated by the radical ISIS (also known by the acronym ISIL) element.

According to news reports, Obama sent Congress a $500 million request Thursday for a Pentagon-run program that would “significantly expand previous covert efforts to arm rebels” in Syria.

Although White House spokeswoman Caitlin Hayden claimed that the military assistance would “help the Syrian people . . . push back against the growing number of extremists like ISIL” this is an obvious lie.

The reality is—as has been shown even by a recent election in Syria, acknowledged by observers as free and fair, given the violence in that country, which saw President Bashar Al-Assad win nearly 90 percent of the votethat the vast majority of the Syrian people support the current Syrian government.

There is therefore no reason for the White House to claim that the “Syrian people” are being attacked by their government. The only people doing the “attacking” are a handful of malcontents, backed by an internationally-motivated group of extremists such as the ISIS—and armed, trained and supplied by the American government.

On the face of matters, there is no rational reason why the US government would want to arm “rebels” who are aligned to the very group which is violently opposed to American interests in Iraq—and which is responsible for the most extreme, bloody and violent massacres and mass murders of recent times.

isis-terror01

The only way in which this apparent contradiction can be explained is by the “strategy” being employed by Israel in the Middle East—which is a microcosm of the overall worldwide strategy pursued by the Jewish lobby against all Gentile nations.

This “strategy” consists of creating discord and disunity, so that attention is diverted away from Jewish Supremacist activities.

This is no “secret” policy—it was recently openly declared by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on American television, particularly referring to Syria and Iraq.

On the NBC “Meet the Press” show, Netanyhau laid out the strategy as follows:

“What you’re seeing in the Middle East today in Iraq and in Syria is the stark hatred between radical Shiites — in this case led by Iran — and radical Sunnis led by al-Qaeda and ISIS and others,” Netanyahu said.

“Now both of these camps are enemies of the United States, and when your enemies are fighting each other, don’t strengthen either one — weaken both.

“And I think by far the worst outcome that could come out of this is that one of these factions, Iran, would come out with nuclear weapon capability. That would be a tragic mistake — it would make everything else pale in comparison.
“I think that there are two actions you have to take: one is to take the actions that you deem necessary to counter this ISIS takeover of Iraq, and the second is not to allow Iran to dominate Iraq the way it dominated Lebanon and Syria.

“You actually have to work on both sides — as I say, you try to weaken both.”

This “strategy”—as set out by the wirepullers who control the US government and its foreign policy—explains why Obama now seeks to increase “aid” to the “Syrian rebels” even though this is blatantly against American interests.

While the whole world calls for an end to the horrific bloodshed, the New York Times gives an insight into the Zionist position.

NYT-syria-israel

Here is a quote from the New York Times from September 5, 2013. The article’s title is“Israel Backs Limited Strike Against Syria.”

“This is a playoff situation in which you need both teams to lose, but at least you don’t want one to win — we’ll settle for a tie,” said Alon Pinkas, a former Israeli consul general in New York. “Let them both bleed, hemorrhage to death: that’s the strategic thinking here. As long as this lingers, there’s no real threat from Syria.”

This high up Israeli Zionist criminal says it all.

While the world wants to end the slaughter, The Israelis and their Zionist cohorts in the United States want the mass murder of innocents in Syria to go on and on!

There is simply no other reason for America to arm and supply “rebels” in Syria. All that will happen is that the bloodshed, suffering and misery of millions of innocent people will continue and even be extended.

Yet this extended bloodshed and suffering is exactly what the Jewish Supremacists want. It forms an intrinsic part of their atavistic hatred of all Gentiles. As long as the Jewish Supremacists can instigate violence and destabilize other nations, the less time the world will have to focus on their own activities.

Jews DO Control the Media

NOVANEWS

Jews do control the media, Hollywood, U.S. foreign policy and the government, in a program akin to the “Protocols of the Learned Elders of Zion,” and Jews are a distinct people and have a right to set the world’s agenda on moral issues, a new article in the Jewish newspaper The Times of Israel has announced.

The article, titled “Jews DO control the media” was written by New York-based Jewish Supremacist Elad Nehorai, who guest writes on that paper and the Huffington Post.

In it, Nehorai admonishes his fellow Jews for being coy about their power over the media, Hollywood and the U.S. government, in this way:

“We Jews are a funny breed. We love to brag about every Jewish actor. Sometimes we even pretend an actor is Jewish just because we like him enough that we think he deserves to be on our team. We brag about Jewish authors, Jewish politicians, Jewish directors. Every time someone mentions any movie or book or piece of art, we inevitably say something like, “Did you know that he was Jewish?” That’s just how we roll.

We’re a driven group, and not just in regards to the art world. We have, for example, AIPAC, which was essentially constructed just to drive agenda in Washington DC. And it succeeds admirably. And we brag about it. Again, it’s just what we do.

But the funny part is when any anti-Semite or anti-Israel person starts to spout stuff like, “The Jews control the media!” and “The Jews control Washington!”

Suddenly we’re up in arms. We create huge campaigns to take these people down. We do what we can to put them out of work. We publish articles. We’ve created entire organizations that exist just to tell everyone that the Jews don’t control nothin’. No, we don’t control the media, we don’t have any more sway in DC than anyone else. No, no, no, we swear: We’re just like everybody else!

Does anyone else (who’s not a bigot) see the irony of this?

Let’s be honest with ourselves, here, fellow Jews. We do control the media. We’ve got so many dudes up in the executive offices in all the big movie production companies it’s almost obscene.

Just about every movie or TV show, whether it be “Tropic Thunder” or “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” is rife with actors, directors, and writers who are Jewish. Did you know that all eight major film studios are run by Jews?

But that’s not all. We also control the ads that go on those TV shows.

And let’s not forget AIPAC, every anti-Semite’s favorite punching bag. We’re talking an organization that’s practically the equivalent of the Elders of Zion. I’ll never forget when I was involved in Israeli advocacy in college and being at one of the many AIPAC conventions.

A man literally stood in front of us and told us that their whole goal was to only work with top-50 school graduate students because they would eventually be the people making changes in the government. Here I am, an idealistic little kid that goes to a bottom 50 school (ASU) who wants to do some grassroots advocacy, and these guys are literally talking about infiltrating the government. Intense.

Now, I know what everyone will say. That everyone tries to lobby. Every minority group and every majority group. That every group has some successful actors and directors. But that’s a far call from saying that we run Hollywood and Madison Avenue. That the Mel Gibsons of the world are right in saying we’re deliberately using our power to take over the world. That we’ve got some crazy conspiracy going down.

Okay. Fine. So some of that is kooky talk.

But let’s look at it a bit deeper.

Maybe it’s true: everyone lobbies. Maybe it’s true there are actors of every ethnicity out there. But come on. We’re the ones who are bragging about this stuff all the time. Can’t we admit that we’re incredibly successful? Can’t we say it to the world?

I’ll give my theory for why Jews don’t want to talk about their control of the media.

First of all, as much as Jews like to admit that so many of them are successful, and that so many of them have accomplished so much, they hate to admit that it has to do with they’re being Jewish. Maybe they’ll admit that it has something to do with the Jewish experience. But how many Jews will admit that there is something inherently a part of every single one of them that helps them to accomplish amazing things?

The ADL chairman, Abe Foxman, was interviewed in a great article about the subject and he said that he “would prefer people say that many executives in the industry ‘happen to be Jewish.’” This just about sums up the party line.

The truth is, the anti-Semites got it right. We Jews have something planted in each one of us that makes us completely different from every group in the world.

We’re talking about a group of people that just got put in death camps, endured pogroms, their whole families decimated. And then they came to America, the one place that ever really let them have as much power as they wanted, and suddenly they’re taking over.

Please don’t tell me that any other group in the world has ever done that. Only the Jews. And we’ve done it before. That’s why the Jews were enslaved in Egypt. We were too successful. Go look at the Torah — it’s right there. And we did it in Germany too.

This ability to succeed, this inner drive, comes not from the years of education or any other sort of conditional factors, but because of the inner spark within each Jew.

Now, the reason groups like the ADL and AIPAC hate admitting this is because, first of all, they are secular organizations. Their whole agenda is to prove that every Jew is the same as every other person in the world. I cannot imagine a more outlandish agenda. No, we’re different. We’re special.

Of course, people hate when anyone says this. They assume that if you’re saying that Jews are special, it somehow implies that they’re better.

To be honest, I’m not really sure what the word “better” even means. What I do know is that being special simply means a person has a responsibility to do good.

I think that’s the real reason most Jews are so afraid to admit that there’s something inherently powerful and good about them. Not because they’re afraid of being special. But because they’re afraid of being responsible. It means that they’re suddenly culpable when they create dirty TV shows that sully the spiritual atmosphere of the world. It means that things can’t just be created for the sake of amusement or fun or even “art.”

Suddenly, we can’t screw up the world.

The interesting thing is that Jews have done so much for the world in so many other ways. They’ve moved forward civil rights; they’ve helped save lives in Darfur, Haiti and just about everywhere else.

But that’s not enough. Fixing the world physically is only half the battle.

Our larger battle, the harder battle, is elevating the world spiritually. And this is what the people that fight with every inch of their soul to prove that Jews are just the same as everyone else are afraid of. It means that we can no longer just “express ourselves.” We’ll have to start thinking about the things we create and the way we act. It means we’ll have to start working together. It means we’ll have to hold one other, and ourselves, to a higher standard.

The time has come, though. We no longer have to change our names. We no longer have to blend in like chameleons. We own a whole freaking country.

Instead, we can be proud of who we are, and simultaneously aware of our huge responsibility — and opportunity.”

Bill Clinton: Dick Cheney and Saudi Zio-Wahhabi regime Created ISIS Crisis in Iraq

Bill Clinton: Dick Cheney and Saudi regime Created ISIS Crisis in Iraq

Former President Bill Clinton hit back against Dick Cheney after the former vice president attacked the Obama administration for creating the current crisis in Iraq.

“You know, if they hadn’t gone to war in Iraq, if they did not support radical terrorist groups from the first place, none of this would be happening ,” Clinton said in an interview to be broadcast Sunday on NBC’s “Meet the Press,” referring to Cheney and former President George W. Bush’s administration, according to USA Today.

Cheney, as vice president, was a proponent of the 2003 U.S. invasion of Iraq, saying the country had developed weapons of mass destruction. The United States invaded Iraq and removed dictator Saddam Hussein, but the alleged weapons were never found.

During the NBC interview with David Gregory, Clinton was asked about the situation in parts of Syria which have been overrun by the terror forces of the Islamic State of Iraq and Syria (ISIS).

“Cheney has been incredibly adroit for the last six years or so attacking the administration for not doing an adequate job of cleaning up the mess that he made. And I think it’s unseemly.”

Earlier this month, Cheney wrote in a commentary for The Wall Street Journal that America’s enemies have been “emboldened” by Obama’s decision to pull out of Iraq and Afghanistan, and they are now a major threat to the United States.

“Rarely has a U.S. president been so wrong about so much at the expense of so many,” Cheney, along with his attorney daughter Liz Cheney, wrote in the opinion piece.

Clinton’s wife Hillary, a potential Democratic presidential candidate in 2016, was the first secretary of state under the Obama administration and helped to create the current foreign policy in the Middle East.

In the NBC interview, Bill Clinton praised George W. Bush for not getting involved in the blame game, unlike Cheney, over the current Iraqi insurgency by Islamist ISIS fighters.

“I give President Bush, by the way, a lot of credit for trying to stay out of this debate and letting other people work through it,” Clinton said.

Hollywood is “Run by Jews”—Gary Oldman Joins Marlon Brando in Naming Movie Industry Bosses

NOVANEWS

Actor Gary Oldman has been forced to issue a grovelling apology to the Jewish Lobby for daring to say what everyone knows—that Jews run Hollywood and movie industry—and for daring to speak this truth, he has of course been forced to apologize.

hollywood-jews

Oldman, whose Hollywood career has included some star performances in blockbusters, made his remarks in an interview with Playboy magazine’s  July/August issue, when the topic of Mel Gibson came up.

Referring to the famous incident when Gibson made some comments about Jews after being arrested for driving under the influence, Oldman said that Gibson “got drunk and said a few things, but we’ve all said those things.

“We’re all f**king hypocrites,” Oldman continued, pointing out the probable truth that almost everyone, Jews as well, would have used some sort of ethnic comment in private.

He said that Gibson has been made into an “oucast” but “some Jewish guy in his office somewhere hasn’t turned and said, ‘That f***ing kraut’ or ‘F*** those Germans,’ whatever it is? We all hide and try to be so politically correct. That’s what gets me.”

Oldman then went on to explain why exactly Gibson was singled out when other people are not:

“Mel Gibson is in a town that’s run by Jews and he said the wrong thing because he’s actually bitten the hand that I guess has fed him – and doesn’t need to feed him anymore because he’s got enough dough.”

gabler-book

This was the comment which drove the Jewish Supremacist Anti-Defamation League (ADL) over the edge, and it issued an attack over his “choice of words”—in other words, for simply speaking the truth, which in ADL eyes, amounts to an “anti-Semitic candard.”

Oldman, obviously realizing that his future career opportunities had probably just gone out the window, then issues a govelling apology—but bizarrely, so doing, quoted once again from a new book which actually discusses—and proves—that Jews do run Hollywood

“If, during the interview, I had been asked to elaborate on this point I would have pointed out that I had just finished reading Neal Gabler’s superb book about the Jews and Hollywood, An Empire of Their Own: How the Jews invented Hollywood,” Oldman said in his apology.

“The fact is that our business, and my own career specifically, owes an enormous debt to that [Jewish] contribution.”

In publicly announcing what everyone knows—and which the ADL hysterically denounces as a “canard”—Oldman has joined Marlon Brando as another Hollywood Star who has dared to “bite the hand that feeds them.

This extract below from Dr. David Duke’s book, Jewish Supremacism, serves as a pertinent reminder of that incident:

The Lesson of Marlon Brando

Jewish power is such that they can make craven even the greatest of Hollywood icons. Marlon Brando is a prime example.

In the early days of his acting career he was completely under the control of Jewish agents and acquaintances. Brando wrote in his autobiography that he was given an important role in a disgustingly pro-Zionist play called A Flag Is Born, written by avid Zionist Ben Hecht and directed by Luther Adler. As Brando notes,

It was essentially a piece of political propaganda advocating the creation of the state of Israel … Everyone in A Flag Is Born was Jewish except me … I did not know then that Jewish terrorists were indiscriminately killing Arabs and making refugees out of them in order to take their land … The play, as well as my friendship with the Adlers, helped make me a zealous advocate for Israel and later a kind of traveling salesman for it…

Brando then began giving propaganda speeches for a Zionist organization, and even contributed money himself to the Zionist Irgun organization, a terrorist group.

Marlon Brando later learned the truth about Zionism and dramatically changed his opinion.

“Now,” he said in 1994, “I understand much more about the complexity of the situation than I did then …   I sided with Jewish terrorists without acknowledging that they were killing innocent Palestinians in their effort to create the state of Israel …  One of the strangest government policies is that largely because of the political influence of Jewish interests, our country has invested billions of dollars and many American lives to help Israel reclaim land that they say their ancestors occupied three thousand years ago.” 

During an appearance on the Larry King television show, actor Marlon Brando dared to comment that “Hollywood is run by Jews. It is owned by Jews.”

Brando contended that Jews are always depicted as humorous, kind, loving, and generous while they slander every other racial group, “but are ever so careful to ensure that there is never any negative image of the kike.”

Jewish groups came down unmercifully on Brando, stating in their press releases that they would see to it that he “would never work again.”

No one in the Jewish press seemed to notice that the threats simply validated Brando’s observation of their unchallenged media power. Brando became so intimidated by the onslaught of hatred and threats against him that he had to arrange an audience with Rabbi Hier of the Simon Wiesenthal Center.

In probably the best acting job of his life, Brando cried and got on his knees and kissed Rabbi Hier’s hands, begging for forgiveness for offending the supreme Jewish gods of the Western World.

Brando publicly renounced his heresy against the new Jewish gods, and thus the Jewish high priest absolved him of his sin.

Brando had become a good object lesson for famous Gentiles who might dare speak the truth about Jewish supremacism, and he has said nothing but positive things about Jews ever since.

If someone wants to understand how the Jewish supremacists maintain their almost complete media control, the Brando incident is an excellent illustration. They do it by both the carrot and the stick.

They reward those Goyim who go along with their evil as they did Brando in his early career, but they are unmerciful to anyone who dares to even utter a word against them. Public figures who publicly oppose them have to be either incredibly stupid or magnificently brave.

Marlon Brando naively thought that by telling the obvious truth about Israel he might endure serious criticism, but he never dreamed of the tidal wave of filth and abuse that would descend upon him.

In a pitiful scene, Brando prostrated himself at the feet of his master like a whimpering dog, literally licking the hand of the tyrant that beat him.

There can be no renewal for our people until that kind of intimidating power is broken. There is no possibility of redemption for our people until we summon the courage necessary to defy our Jewish supremacist overlords. Finally, no regeneration of our society can occur until real freedom of speech and press is restored.

Once I discovered the Jewish power over the American media, I resolved never to surrender my freedom of speech in deference to it. No matter if it might cost me my reputation, my freedom or even my life; I became and still remain determined to oppose the media masters who seek to destroy our way of life and our very life form itself. I am confident that in time my kinsmen will likewise rise up in defiance rather than kneel in dishonor — as Marlon Brando did— to our would-be masters.
