Syria’s Kurds and the Wages of Treachery

Syrian Kurdish forces have been among the bravest and most effective in the war against ISIS in Syria. However as things stand they may well also be on course to be the most treacherous.

Whether organized under the auspices of the PYD (People’s Protection Units) or SDF (Syrian Democratic Forces) there is no doubting that the role played by the Kurds in northern Syria in first resisting and now taking the fight to ISIS will go down in history. But now as the Kurds continue their advance through Raqqa Province, closing in on Raqqa from the north, it is  clear that with the backing of US military forces, they are intent on exploiting the chaos of the conflict to carve out their own autonomous territory of Rojava (Western Kurdistan) with Hasakah as its capital.

Syrian concerns over the Kurds’ intentions were initially raised in March, when at a meeting in the town of Rmeilan in Hasakah Province the Kurds and their allies unilaterally declared a northern autonomous federation, which understandably the Syrian government refused to accept or recognize. In January, two months prior to the declaration of said northern federation by the Kurds,US troops had taken control of an airfield just outside Rmeilan.  It doesn’t take a genius to discern a connection between both.

Indeed there is something undeniably murky when it comes to the manner in which the Americans have developed a close military alliance with the Kurds over the past few months, even at the cost of incurring the extreme displeasure of their NATO ally Turkey. It suggests that in the Kurds and various other groups that make up the SDF, the Pentagon believes it has finally fastened onto the ‘third force’ it has been trying to cultivate within the conflict as a wedge between the Assad government and ISIS with an eye on asserting a military and geopolitical presence in the country beyond the current conflict.

In this respect, there is no reason to believe that regime change in Damascus is off Washington’s table, though as with Iraq after the first Gulf War in 1990-91 the willingness of the US to abandon the Kurds as and when it suits should give the Syrian Kurds pause for thought when it comes to trusting any promises or pledges of support that come gift-wrapped in an American accent now.

The Kurds, we know, are thanks to Sykes Picot the largest stateless people in the world, spread between four nations in the Middle East – Iran, Iraq, Syria, and Turkey, along with a wider Kurdish diaspora spread mostly across Europe. There is no accurate figure when it comes to the size of the Kurdish population, but it is thought to number anywhere between 20-30 million. That being said, it would be a mistake to consider them a homogenous group. How could they possibly be so after generations spent fragmented across different countries, regarded with suspicion and mistrust and experiencing regular bouts of repression in the process?

There are 2.5 million Kurds in Syria, predominately located in the north close to the border with Turkey, and in 2011 President Assad granted 300,000 of them citizenship, a gesture his opponents and detractors in the West dismissed as instrumentalist. Regardless, Syria remains a sovereign state and its people will not accept any of its territory being cleaved off in the context of a conflict in which over 60,000 Syrian soldiers and officers have lost their lives fighting to defend that sovereignty. Some of those Syrian soldiers and officers, as British journalist Robert Fisk wrote in February, were killed courtesy of the Kurds, when after the battle for the Mineq airbase in 2013 retreating Syrian soldiers and officers made it to Kurdish-held territory only to be handed over to the Nusra by the Kurds in exchange for Kurdish prisoners. The Syrian officers were separated from the soldiers and executed.

Though it has long ceased to matter in Washington, US ground forces operating in Syria without the prior consent of the country’s legitimate government constitutes a violation of the country’s sovereignty and does not bode well when it comes to trusting US motives going forward. Where Washington is concerned neither the Syrians or Iranians or Russians are under any illusions, of course, and will no doubt be prepared for any eventuality.

There is also the no small matter of Turkey’s determination to lump the Kurds in the same box with ISIS, thus adding another layer of intrigue to this unfolding drama. The notion that Ankara would stand by while something approximating to a Kurdish state is established on its border at any time, never mind at a time when it is engaged in a military campaign to crush the PKK, is delusional in the extreme.

It was the English poet William Blake who said, “It is easier to forgive an enemy than to forgive a friend.” The brave men and women of the YPG and SDF could do worse than bear the wisdom of those words in mind.

The Kurds throughout their history have revealed a proclivity for accepting the support of any imperial power to further their aims of a state of their own. This has been their mistake given that whatever imperialism gives with one hand it obliterates with the other.

On ceasefire anniversary, UN agencies urge end to Gaza’s ‘de-development spiral’

UN agencies have urged an end to what they describe as the Gaza Strip’s “de-development spiral”, in a report marking the two-year anniversary of the ceasefire that ended ‘Operation Protective Edge’.

In a statement released Friday, 16 heads of United Nations agencies in Palestine call for the “uninterrupted and predictable flow of material and increased funding to address humanitarian needs and boost economic prospects for Gaza’s 1.9 million residents.”

In the report, UN agencies “document collective progress made in the last two years, as well as some of the remaining challenges in the recovery and reconstruction effort.” To date, “half of the homes which suffered partial damages and a third of destroyed homes have been rebuilt.”

Robert Piper, the UN Coordinator for Humanitarian Aid and Development Activities, warned that “repairing the damages from the 51-day hostilities cannot be our only measure of success, given that humanitarian and socio-economic indicators were already so dire before 2014.”

Piper added: “We must reverse Gaza’s de-development trajectory and address the needs of a population that has gone through three rounds of conflict, nine years of an Israeli blockade and the consequences of the Palestinian internal divide.”

The senior UN official emphasised that “addressing economic recovery requires much greater financial investments and serious policy changes, including a lifting of [Israeli-imposed] restrictions on both imports and exports.”

On October 2014, donors pledged US$ 3.5 billion to support Gaza. According to the World Bank, only an estimated 40 percent had been disbursed by April this year.

Whitewashing I$raHell War Crimes, the NYT Turns its Back on Survivors and Critics

By Barbara Erickson 

So it’s settled, according to The New York Times: Israel was not at fault in a strike that killed 10 civilians near a United Nations school in the 2014 assault on Gaza, nor was it guilty of breaking the law in other instances that left innocent victims dead during that conflict.

This, at least, is what the Israeli military claims, and in a one-sided story in the Times this week, Isabel Kershner takes the Israeli military findings at face value, never questioning its conclusions or seeking commentary from outside sources.

She opens her piece with a summary of the military’s own account of the strike on the school, recounting it as established fact without attribution. Kershner goes on to say that the army also declared itself innocent of deliberately causing civilian deaths in two other attacks during the 51-day offensive: a strike on the Bureij refugee camp and the death of 12 members of one family in Rafah. The three cases were among seven closed without charges this week.

The school was hit, according to the army account, because militants targeted by an air-to-ground missile happened to pass by the site too late for the Israeli army to correct its aim; the Bureij bombing was “justified and legal” because the building hit was being used by Hamas as a control center; and the Rafah deaths were caused by “errant mortar fire” from Gaza militants.

Her story makes no mention of other instances that raised international outrage, such as the mortar attack that killed four boys playing soccer on a beach, the massacre in the Shujaiya neighborhood of Gaza City and the excessive and deadly bombardment of eastern Rafah after Palestinians captured an Israeli soldier.

The article likewise fails to include any comments by outsiders on the military decision to close seven cases. Kershner did not seek responses from Gaza residents or from human rights groups that have also investigated and documented the Israeli attacks.

Other media outlets, however, included these outside perspectives: The Guardian, for instance, sought reactions from Gaza residents affected by the strikes, and the International Business Times quoted extensively from an Amnesty International staff person.

But the Times finds no reason to look for sources beyond the Israeli military, which happens to be the entity under investigation. At the same time, it shows little concern for what the people of Gaza experience.

This week’s story, for example, concludes with two paragraphs about Israeli air and tank strikes on the beleaguered strip this week. A total of 50 bombardments hit the enclave after militants fired a single rocket toward the town of Sderot.

Kershner’s story tells us only what “Israeli analysts” have to say about the strikes. The targeted sites were “empty,” she reports, and “no deaths were reported.” Other news sources, however, state that four people were injured.

The Times insists that it provides full and fair accounts, that it is neutral and balanced, but its editors and reporters fail to follow even minimal journalistic standards in reporting on Israel. Those accused of war crimes are allowed to speak for themselves without the annoyance of outside observers to challenge any aspect of their claims. Those who bear the brunt of these alleged crimes have no voice at all.

ABC Shifts Blame from US Wars to Doctors Without Borders

NOVANEWS
Image result for ABC LOGO
By David Swanson 

ABC Television’s 20/20 will air a program on Friday called “The Girl Left Behind,” the main thrust of which is already apparent on ABC’s website.

The horribly tragic story is that of Kayla Mueller, an American held hostage and reportedly raped and tortured by ISIS before dying — it’s unclear how, possibly at the hands of ISIS, possibly killed by bombs dropped by U.S. ally Jordan.

Another hostage who was freed reported that ISIS blamed Kayla Mueller for U.S. actions in the Middle East. Among those actions, we learned this week, was imprisoning future ISIS leader Abu Bakr al-Baghdadi at Abu Ghraib, not just at Camp Bucca as previously reported.

Mueller, like fellow ISIS victim James Foley, meant well and was in Syria to try to help people nonviolently. But U.S. policy has made it unsafe for Americans to travel to many places.

ABC will seek to pin blame for what happened to Mueller on Doctors Without Borders. She was kidnapped out of a Doctors Without Borders car, and that organization negotiated the freedom of its employees while refusing to help Mueller or even to trust her family enough to share with them information intended for them from ISIS.

But Doctors Without Borders was in Syria to help people and appears to have meant well. Blaming the doctors is easy to overdo here, and not just because the United States has been bombing its hospitals — acts that may not involve rape or torture, but do involve murder and maiming. The U.S. government could have helped Mueller by never having destroyed Iraq in the first place, never having sought to overthrow Syria, never having overthrown Libya, or never having flooded the region with weapons. Or the U.S. government could have negotiated with ISIS or allowed victims’ families to do so — something it now allows, too late for Kayla Mueller. Or the U.S. government could have announced new policies that ISIS would likely have accepted as ransom.

ISIS asked, in exchange for Mueller’s freedom, for the freedom of Aafia Siddiqui or $5 million Euros. If the U.S. government had, instead, offered an apology to the victims of its wars and prison camps, and massive reparations to the region, ISIS might very well have responded in kind. Instead, the U.S. government proceeded to bomb people, including many civilians, for a cost many times greater than $5 million Euros.

The telling of Mueller’s story is, in itself, worthwhile. But the focus on an American victim of a war that is victimizing all kinds of people fuels dangerous attitudes. Focusing on the crimes of ISIS, but not of Saudi Arabia or Bahrain or, for that matter, the United States, looks like propaganda for more war. When a New Yorker like Jeffrey Epstein rapes, nobody proposes to bomb New York, but when Baghdadi allegedly rapes, the appropriate response is widely understood to be bombing people.

I don’t think the suffering of Kayla Mueller or James Foley should be used to justify the infliction of more suffering. As 9/11 victims have been used as a justification to kill hundreds of times the number of people killed on 9/11, some of the victims’ relatives have pushed back. James Foley is pushing back from the grave. Posted online is a video of Foley talking about the lies that are needed to launch wars, including the manipulation of people into thinking of foreigners as less than human. Foley’s killers may have thought of him as less than human. He may not have viewed them the same way.

The video shows Foley in Chicago helping the late Haskell Wexler with his film Four Days in Chicago — a film about a protest of NATO. I was there in Chicago for the march and rally against NATO. And I met Wexler who tried unsuccessfully to find funding for a film version of my book War Is A Lie.

In the video you can watch Foley discussing the limitations of embedded reporting, the power of veteran resistance, veterans he met at Occupy, the absence of a good justification for the wars, the dehumanization needed before people can be killed, the shallowness of media coverage — watch all of that and then try to imagine James Foley accepting the use of his killing as propaganda for more fighting.

When Foley’s mother sought to ransom him, the U.S. government repeatedly threatened her with prosecution. So, instead of Foley’s mother paying a relatively small amount and possibly saving her son, ISIS goes on getting its funding from oil sales and supporters in the Gulf and free weapons from, among elsewhere, the United States and its allies. And we’re going to collectively spend millions, probably billions, and likely trillions of dollars furthering the cycle of violence that Foley risked his life to expose.

Settlement Reached in Case of Professor Fired for “Uncivil” Tweets

NOVANEWS

By: Center for Constitutional Rights

Chicago Today, the Center for Constitutional Rights (CCR) and co-counsel Loevy & Loevy announced the settlement of Professor Steven Salaita’s case against the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) for firing him from his tenured position over his personal tweets criticizing the Israeli government’s assault on Gaza in 2014. Professor Salaita sued UIUC, the university Board of Trustees and high-level administrators for violating his First Amendment right to free speech and for breach of contract. Salaita’s firing became a flashpoint for debates over academic freedom, free speech, and the repression of Palestinian rights advocacy. In exchange for Professor Salaita’s agreement to release his claims, the university has agreed to pay $875,000.

“This settlement is a vindication for me, but more importantly, it is a victory for academic freedom and the First Amendment,” said Professor Salaita. “The petitions, demonstrations, and investigations, as well as the legal case, have reinvigorated American higher education as a place of critical thinking and rigorous debate, and I am deeply grateful to all who have spoken out.”

Professor Salaita’s firing prompted student walkouts; the cancellation of more than three dozen scheduled talks and conferences at the school; further pledges to boycott UIUC by more than 5,000 academics; a vote of no confidence in the university administration by 16 UIUC academic departments; and public condemnation by prominent academic organizations, including the American Association of University Professors (AAUP), the Modern Language Association, and the Society of American Law Teachers. In April, the AAUP released a scathing report on Salaita’s termination and, in June, voted to censure the UIUC for its actions. In August, a federal judge rejected the university’s argument that Professor Salaita had not actually been hired, despite a contract and his impending family move to the university, writing, “If the Court accepts the University’s argument, the entire American academic hiring process as it now operates would cease to exist.”

Within hours of the court’s decision, Chancellor Phyllis Wise, who sent Professor Salaita the letter notifying him of his termination a year prior, resigned from the UIUC. The following day, the university revealed that administrators had been using personal email accounts in an attempt to avoid publicly releasing their correspondence. In one email released under the Freedom of Information Act (FOIA), Chancellor Wise admitted that she was not only using her private email because of the litigation, but was deleting her messages after sending. Provost Ilesanmi Adesida resigned a few weeks later. Prior FOIA productions had revealed that wealthy UIUC donors had threatened to withhold funding unless Professor Salaita was terminated.

“Professor Salaita’s case galvanized champions of academic freedom and Palestinian rights activists alike, making clear that punishing speech―even speech that dares to criticize Israeli government atrocities―will not be tolerated. It resulted in widespread condemnation of the university’s actions and a federal court decision finding he had a contract and his tweets were protected by the First Amendment. Professor Salaita has in fact won―and this settlement permits him to move on and refocus on his work as a premier scholar and an excellent teacher,” said Center for Constitutional Rights Deputy Legal Director Maria LaHood.

In July 2014, after his contract with the university had been signed, Professor Salaita tweeted a number of strongly worded messages from his private account expressing his outrage and dismay at the Israeli government’s attacks in Gaza, which killed more than 500 children. Professor Salaita’s firing is part of a broader crackdown on activism for Palestinian rights that includes event cancellations, baseless legal complaints such as the ongoing case in Washington against Olympia Food Co-op board members for boycotting Israeli goods, administrative disciplinary actions, false and inflammatory accusations of terrorism and antisemitism, and legislation to prohibit boycotts of Israeli goods and institutions. The Center for Constitutional Rights co-authored a report this fall with the organization Palestine Legal on the widespread attempts to silence U.S. activists critical of Israel’s policies, called “The Palestine Exception to Free Speech”.

“Make no mistake: the size of this settlement is an implicit admission of the strength of Professor Salaita’s constitutional and contractual claims,” said Anand Swaminathan of Loevy & Loevy. “He has scored a major victory for those who care about free speech and academic freedom. In the future, university administrators will have to think twice before they choose the interests of wealthy donors and alumni over upholding their constitutional obligations. This legal victory could not have been possible without the support of a large and committed movement of activists and academics.”

Obstacle to Peace”, The Genocide of a Land. Palestine

NOVANEWS
By: Dr. Paul Craig Roberts
Israel_Palestine_Flag

In our days of darkness, spreading ignorance, and absence of serious debate in public forums, we can take hope from the fact that some scholars still produce serious and informative books on the most critical issues of our time. If in the future policymakers again seek the guidance of truth, they will have the information at hand. One such book of truth is Jeremy R. Hammond’s just published Obstacle to Peace, a closely reasoned, heavily documented (68 pages of footnotes), fully indexed, readable book with a Foreword by Richard Falk, an Introduction by Gene Epstein, and an endorsement by Noam Chomsky.

The obstacle to peace is the United States government, which has consistently opposed the entire world’s decades long effort to stop the Zionist genocide of a land called Palestine.

Palestine is a stolen and oppressed land. Israel’s greatest leaders themselves acknowledge the fact. Tom Are quotes David Ben-Gurion:

If I were an Arab leader, I would never make terms with Israel. That is natural, we have taken their country. Sure God promised it to us, but what does that matter to them? Our God is not theirs. We came from Israel, it’s true, but that was two thousand years ago, and what is that to them? There has been anti-Semitism, the Nazis, Auschwitz, but was that their fault? They only see one thing: we have come and stolen their country. Why should they accept that?  http://thomas-l-are.blogspot.com

What once was a country consists today of a few small isolated Palestinian ghettos in the West Bank surrounded by Israeli settlements and an open air prison known as Gaza. Periodically Israel launches military assaults on the civilian population of Gaza, destroying the lives of the people and the infrastructure of the prison camp.

Israel then prevents outside efforts from sending supplies to the suffering people in Gaza. “Freedom flotillas” crewed by Nobel Laurates, present and former members of US and European legislative bodies, and even members of the Israeli Knesset set sail with supplies for Gaza and are pirated and captured in international waters by the Israeli Navy, which, as a warning to others, kills some of the delegation in “self-defense.” The United States steadfastly defends Israel’s criminal behavior with its UN veto and other governments, though disapproving, are unwilling to confront Washington and force a change.

Washington’s 21st century wars in the Middle East were initiated by neoconservative regimes whose principal policymakers are tightly allied with Israel. The wars focused on Arab nations—Iraq, Libya, and Syria—that were supportive of the Palestinians and had foreign policies independent of Washington. Washington succeeded in destroying two of the countries and has not given up on destroying Syria despite the risk of confrontation with Russia.

The risks that Washington is imposing on Americans and Europeans in order to advance Israeli expansion in the Middle East are horrific. Zionists claim a “greater Israel” from the Nile to the Euphrates. Washington’s wars in the Middle East are designed to remove obstacles to “greater Israel.” For example, on past occasions Israel has attempted to seize southern Lebanon for the water resources, but were driven out by Hezbollah, a militia supplied by Syria and Iran. This is one reason Syria and Iran are on Washington’s target list.

To achieve its or Israel’s goals, Washington uses jihadists. Russia sees the jihadists as threats that could spread to the Muslim areas of the Russian Federation, and Russia acts to protect itself. China also has realized that its province bordering Kazakhstan is subject to jihadist destabilization and appears to be aligning with Russia, Iran, and Syria against Washington’s effort to overthrow the Syrian government and install in its place chaos as Washington has done in Iraq and Libya, thus removing another constraint on Israel’s expansion and the restraint of a secular Syrian government on jihadism.

To get all of this from Hammond, you might have to connect some dots. But what you will get is a massive amount of verbatim dialogue that documents beyond all doubt the conspiracy between Israel, Washington, and the US presstitutes to get rid of “the Palestinian problem” by getting rid of Palestinians.

What does emerge strongly from Hammond’s book is that justice is not a thriving characteristic of the Israeli government, US foreign policy, or the media. The United Nations has produced report after report documenting the extermination of a people, but is powerless to act because of Washington’s veto.

What has happened to Palestinians is a replay of what happened to the native inhabitants of North America and Australia. Palestinians have been dispossessed and murdered. For this crime, the United States shares responsibility with Israel.

Become informed while you still can. Propaganda is turning truth-tellers into “conspiracy theorists” and “domestic extremists.” We can’t take the continued presence of truth-tellers for granted.

The Israelification of the American domestic police

NOVANEWS

The Israelification of the American domestic police departments is a deliberate continuation and intensification of the American Domestic Police State since 9-11.

JohnAdams

by Jonas E. Alexis & Mark Dankof

Gordon Duff was again absolutely right when he declared in 2012 that

“Slowly, every police department in the United States, at the behest of the Department of Homeland Security [DHS], is being trained by Israeli groups. As part of this training, there is an increased move to use of military uniforms, armored vehicles, heavy weapons, illegal surveillance, lying to the people, press and courts and systematic interference in the electoral system…”

If this seems hocus pocus, hang in there. Listen to the Boston Globe back in 2011:

“Police chiefs from Newton, Framingham, and Belmont headed off last weekend for a weeklong counterterrorism seminar in Israel, funded by the Anti-Defamation League. They are joining a dozen other senior law enforcement officials from the Northeast to network and get first-hand advice from Israeli security experts.”[1]

The Jerusalem Post confirmed the report.[2] JINSA, the Jewish Institute for National Security Affairs, admitted in the same year that “top level American police chiefs, sheriffs, and senior federal agents” were indeed trained in Israel.

Two years later, Israel National News again concurred that “A delegation of law enforcement executives from the United States” was trained in Israel. The Times of Israel confirmed the report.[3]

We are also told that the Israeli army “trained London Police in tactics and strategy during Gaza crisis” in 2014.[4]

Even during the Occupy Wall Street movement in 2011, Max Blumenthal himself admitted that the US police force and other officials were trained in Israel. Blumenthal called the plan the “Israelification of America.” The Jewish Virtual Library has an article entitled “U.S.-Israel Strategic Cooperation: Joint Police & Law Enforcement Training.” We learn:

“With the United States on constant terror alert since the events of September 11, 2001, American police and law enforcement officials are taking advantage of Israel’s expertise in various facets of counter-terrorism and first response to better protect the American people.

“In 2002, Los Angeles Police Department detective Ralph Morten visited Israel to receive training and advice on preparing security arrangements for large public gatherings. From lessons learned on his trip, Det. Morten prepared a new Homicide Bomber Prevention Protocol and was better able to secure the Academy Awards presentation.

“In January 2003, thirty-three senior U.S. law enforcement officials – from Washington, Chicago, Kansas City, Boston and Philadelphia – traveled to Israel to attend a meeting on “Law Enforcement in the Era of Global Terror.”  The workshops helped build skills in identifying terrorist cells, enlisting public support for the fight against terrorism and coping with the aftermath of a terrorist attack…

“In September 2013, a special team of bomb squad members from cities along the U.S.-Mexico border travelled to Israel in an effort to improve techniques and tactics for dealing with illegal immigration and IED attacks.”

The Jerusalem Post again agreed with the report.[5]

Obviously we have a situation here. We all know by now that Israel has spread covert and terrorist activities in much of the West and the Middle East.[6] For example, the late Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir was a member of a terrorist organization called the Stern Gang that led to the assassination of British Resident Minister in the Middle East Lord Moyne in August 1944.[7]

The fundamental question is this: Why have our domestic police departments been brainwashed in Israel? Didn’t Abu Ghraib teach us anything? Didn’t British journalist Robert Fisk write that “Abu Ghraib torture trail leads to Israel”?[8] Did anyone enjoy sodomy at that place? How about raping boys in the same madhouse in front of their mothers?[9] How about “a uniformed soldier receiving oral sex from a female prisoner, a government contractor engag[ing] in an act of sodomy with a male prisoner and scenes of forced masturbation, forced exhibition, and penetration involving phosphorous sticks and brooms”?[10]

If those acts were morally repugnant, why again are we sending elected officials to be trained in a foreign land which has caused nothing but misery in the United States? More importantly, how would the Founding Fathers of America respond to this pernicious enterprise? Didn’t they unanimously declare that America should never be involved in foreign entanglements?


"Brother Netanyahu, thank you so much or treading on my terrorist work."

“Brother Netanyahu, thank you so much for treading on my terrorist work.”

After more than three years of political manipulation and covert warfare, what has been the result of all the training in Israel? Peace and harmony? Or chaos in major centers in America? What do we see in places like Dallas, Ferguson, Baltimore, etc.? Isn’t the Israeli regime actually killing two birds with one stone here? Aren’t they dividing and subjugating people in America through covert means? Aren’t they implicitly repeating what people like Louis Wirth did in major cities in America?[11]

If pawns and thugs in the BLM movement suddenly realize that they are being manipulated, if all decent Americans find out that the police force and US officials were trained in Israel, there would be anger in America. And that anger obviously has the potential to produce unwanted and ugly consequences, such as violent reactions.

We are not proposing violent reactions. What we are proposing is the antithesis of violence. Our view is that the US and Israeli governments must act according to reason and the moral law and political order, not according to the dictates of essentially Talmudic dogmas,[12] which are essentially anti-Logos and anti-Western.

If they cannot do that, then they have to know that they cannot fool the masses forever. Once the masses suddenly wake up from their dogmatic slumber, violent reaction will inevitably ensue, and we all hope and pray that it doesn’t come to that pivotal point.

We have seen how similar events have played out in history, most specifically during the Hep-Hep riots in 1819 in Germany. Once the mob and much of the middle class realized that they were economically being reduced to rubble and abject poverty through cheating and vices, and once they stumbled upon the real perpetrators, chaos loomed. E. Michael Jones writes,

“Police officers were beaten and thrown to the ground and a military unit which the police called for help was met with a hail of rocks. Ten of the rioters were arrested, and six of them held in jail. The mob then attacked the house of Theresie Huegelin, where the Jew Abraham Loeb Brueckner ran a junk shop.

“After breaking down the door of Brueckner’s shop, the mob smashed the store windows, as well as the windows on the second floor of the building. During the rioting, one of the protesters insulted the royal city commissioner by shouting ‘Hep-Hep’ in his face, and then laughing shouted tauntingly ‘arrest me’…

“The tumult grew so large on August 4 that the president of the council was forced to call in reinforcements. Signs of Jewish businesses were ripped down and trampled on. Finally, the rioters invaded the house of Moises Forchheimer. Forchheimer was not at home at the time, but his wife, who was, was forced to pay the rioters 60 pennies to get rid of them…

“Of the 16 men arrested for rioting in Frankfurt, 15 had either already declared bankruptcy or they were unemployed former soldiers, day laborers or street urchins, a group of people, in other words, who in the best of times were at the periphery of the economy and were being pushed into penury by the influx the lower class Jews who undercut their tenuous connection to the local economy.”[13]

One of the main reasons for the Hep-Hep riot again was that the Jewish oligarchs began to cheat the system and sucked the blood out of the middle class. This was never an isolated case. Centuries earlier, we find the same phenomenon in Poland, most particularly during the 1600s. Jewish historiographer Heinrich Graetz declared that once the Jews began to immerse themselves in the study of the Talmud, wickedness again became the rule:

“A love of twisting, distorting, ingenious quibbling, and a foregone antipathy to what did not lie within their field of vision, constituted the character of the Polish Jews. Pride in their knowledge of the Talmud and a spirit of dogmatism attached even to the best rabbis, and undermined their moral sense…Integrity and right-mindedness they had lost as completely as simplicity and the sense of truth.

“The vulgar acquired the quibbling method of the schools, and employed it to outwit the less cunning. They found pleasure and a sort of triumphant delight in deception and cheating against members of their own race; cunning could not well be employed, because they were sharp-witted; but the non-Jewish world with which they came into contact experienced to its disadvantage the superiority of the Talmudical spirit of the Polish Jews.”[14]

This energized an anti-Jewish spirit among the Poles, for they knew that they were being cheated. This quickly led to violence among the Gentiles, who in 1638 “slew 200 Jews, and destroyed several synagogues.”

Ten years later, Jews clung to the book of Zohar for Messianic revolution, and this again caused “bloody retribution,” during which Jews were slain.[15]

Within the next three years, anti-Jewish resistance led again to a bloody war that took the lives of thousands of Jews, and caused many others to move to places like the Netherlands, Bohemia, Austria, Italy, and Hungary.

Wherever they went, however, they took the study of the Talmud with them, bearing the same attitudes towards Gentiles. “Far from giving up their own method in a foreign country,” Graetz said, “they demanded that all the world should be regulated by them, and they gained their point.”[16]

In the same century, capitalism fell in the hands of the Jews. French historian Fernand Braudel called this “the ‘age’ of great Jewish merchants,”[17] during which they were involved in “lucrative areas of commerce” such as piracy

“in which these Jewish merchants specialized. Questions of morality did not apply…Jewish merchants were the brains behind the brawn—financing, advising, and sometimes leading the Caribbean’s emerging fighting force: a ragtag crew of misfits of every nation that coalesced as the dreaded pirates of the Spanish Main.”[18]

Eventually in the 1660s, “the pirate capital acquired a reputation as the world’s ‘wickedest city.’”[19]

We want neither “the world’s wickedest city” nor violent reactions. The best way to avoid both detrimental acts is for the Powers That Be to submit their will to reason and abandon their covert and subversive activities. In other words, we are proposing a return to Logos.

This is actually a modus vivendi because Logos is what unites us all as human beings. In addition, since we are all creatures of Logos, then to act against reason and the moral universe is detrimental and therefore dangerous. As Israeli historians such as Benny Morris, Ilan Pappe and Zeev Sternhell have shown, the Israeli regime has been acting against reason since 1948,[20] and it is irresponsible to allow the US police force to be trained in that region of the world.

What we can say is that decent police officers probably have no clue of what’s going on. They do not know that they are being manipulated. But one thing is for sure: the violent events we saw in Ferguson and more recently in Dallas actually distract people from focusing on the Israeli occupation, concentration camps in Gaza, and perpetual wars in the Middle East.[21] What’s your assessment, Mark Dankof?

Mark Dankof:  Jonas, I believe your overview of the nature of the problem of the increasing involvement of Israel in training domestic American police departments mirrors the dangers of Israeli involvement with the American National Security Establishment and its sixteen (16) agencies. Your overview, and the recent work of Dr. E. Michael Jones of Culture Wars in discussing the Jewish infiltration of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s, provide a wealth of information on just how serious the implications of all of this are for the people of the United States.

It is noteworthy that the Mainstream Media (MSM) consortiums are discussing none of these developments. This is not accidental. Your work, that of Dr. Jones, and sources like Dr. Paul Craig Roberts and Dr. Philip Giraldi, ex-CIA Station Chief and Israeli critic at the Council for the National Interest, should cause every American of any political spectrum or skin hue to lose much sleep late at night.

In recent years, I have been sounding the alarm on this through my radio shows, TV guest appearances, and articles. I have urged Americans to consider the real track record of the Zionist State of Israel vis a vis the United States over many decades.

Some of these subjects have dealt with the Lavon Affair; the Kennedy AssassinationIsrael’s purloining of nuclear raw materials for their weaponized Dimona operation at the NUMEC plant in Pennsylvania after the death of Kennedy; the USS Liberty affair in 1967; the Jonathan Pollard spy case; the PROMIS affairIsrael’s involvement in 9-11; the Rosen-Weissman AIPAC spy case and the tampering with that court case undertaken by then Congresswoman Jane Harman of California at the behest of Israeli intelligence, proven by an NSA wiretap and intercept; the Ben Ami Kadesh spy case; and Israel’s criminal alliance with the terrorist Mujahedeen-e-Khalq organization which has resulted in both the illegal assassinations of Iranian nuclear scientists in Iran at the behest of Israel (along with many other criminal acts over the years), and the bribing of key Zionist and Neo-Conservative tools in the American government to achieve the removal of the MEK from the State Department’s list of terrorist organizations.

In my now dated piece for Al Jazeerah entitled, “Kitat Kohenut and the Israeli Police State in Amerrika,” much of what is discussed there has now been further developed by your work and that of Dr. Jones.

Now we add to all of this the clear record of the State of Israel in direct involvement in ethnic cleansing in Palestine, Gaza, and the Sabra and Shatila murders in southern Lebanon among the laundry list of criminal acts since the bombing of the King David Hotel in Jerusalem in 1946,[22] and the lunacy of facilitating the Zionist State’s involvement in training domestic American police departments comes into absolute focus.

I have just finished Taleeb Starkes’ fine perspective on “Arguments Against the Race Grievance Mafia” for VT. Much of what he says I agree with. To that, I’d add that Dr. E. Michael Jones’ perspective on Ferguson and Black Lives Matter for Culture Wars and two You Tube videos would be essential additional ingredients in adding to Taleeb’s legitimate points and concerns. The Jones’ discussions on line may be accessed here and here.

At the end of the day after ruminating about these matters and the implications, I conclude the following: 1) Jewish and Zionist manipulation of the Civil Rights Movement in the 1960s, the recent tragedies like Ferguson and the Black Lives Matter phenomenon, and the skillful employment of their control of Mainstream Media (MSM) consortiums to do it, has an agenda attached to it. 

That agenda involves pitting unsuspecting African-Americans and European-Americans against each other while both factions ignore how this Fifth Column has pitted them against each other to facilitate Jewish Talmudic Supremacy in the United States and the latter’s hijacking of our Federal Government, our Central Banking System, our Foreign Policy, our Educational Institutions, our NGOs, our Mainstream Media (MSM), and last-but-not-least our degenerate culture courtesy of the Frankfurt School and its Institute of Social Research.

All of this is to the absolute detriment of both African Americans and European Americans once both greatly influenced by Christianity in American culture and life. The increasing absence of the latter is evident in the rise of sexual perversion, family disintegration, violence, hatred, race baiting, and scapegoating on both sides.

2) The Israelification of the American domestic police departments is a deliberate continuation and intensification of the American Domestic Police State since 9-11.

I said this a few years ago for The Oslo Times and Press TV among many other outlets on many occasions. Take a look at the Missouri Information Action Center (MIAC) report of 2008 for earlier evidence of where we are heading.

It was proven that year that the Federal Department of Homeland Security (DHS), the Anti-Defamation League of B’nai Brith (ADL), and the Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC), were developing an “American Domestic Terrorist Profile” for the Missouri State Police which stated that a disproportionate number of these dangerous people were believed to be found among many supporters of Pat Buchanan, Ron Paul, the National Rifle Association (NRA), and white males who go to Christian churches while opposing abortion-on-demand, gay marriage, globalist trade treaties, and American membership in NATO.

The report was withdrawn when it came to light. What has not been withdrawn, but increased is the ongoing Israelification of our domestic American police departments, our National Security apparatus, and the Zionist power and financial wherewithal to support subversive movements like Black Lives Matter, for reasons already discussed and chronicled everywhere from Russia Insider to the Washington Times.

The Endgame is terrifying for all of us. We could be staring a Third World War and the final completion of the Domestic American Police State’s construction right in the face after the next Presidential Inauguration in January of 2017. Let African-Americans and European-Americans of good will recognize what has happened in this country, and band together in an absolutely cemented alliance to stop it. Catastrophe is at our very doorstep.

Alexis: Great assessment again, Mark. The good news for us is that, catastrophe or not, reason or Logos will triumph in the end. And because we are not blind to higher realities and metaphysics, because we submit our will to what Kant calls practical reason, the current regime is scared of people like us—and they should.

The god of the current regime is unbridled passion and appetite, lust, and ultimately Mammon. We are proposing the antithesis of all this. They will never like people like us, for we will continue to expose them for what they really are.

Moreover, if The Lord of the Rings teaches us anything, it is that patience is an ethical medicine. Frodo quickly began to panic as soon as he realized that Gollum was a cunning creature that deserved to die.

Frodo came to that conclusion because he was frightened. He thought that a small creature like Gollum could alter what Hegel calls the “ultimate design…whose rationality is not that of a particular subject, but a divine and absolute reason.”[23]

What Frodo didn’t realize was that Gollum was inexorably fulfilling what Hegel termed “the cunning of reason.” “I am frightened; and I do not feel any pity for Gollum,” said Frodo. “For now I am really afraid. What a pity that Bilbo did not stab that vile creature, when he had a chance…”

For Frodo, the death of Gollum would have been the end of his pain. Gandalf, being wiser than the lad who obviously could not see beyond the physical world, corrected Frodo and responded:

“Pity? It was Pity that stayed his hand. Pity, and Mercy: not to strike without need.” Gandalf accepted Frodo’s argument that Gollum deserved to die, but added:

“Many that live deserve death. And some that die deserve life. Can you give it to them? Then do not be too eager to deal out death in judgment. For even the very wise cannot see all ends… There was more than one power at work, Frodo…It was the strangest event in the whole history of the Ring so far: Bilbo’s arrival just at the time, and putting his hand on it, blindly, in the dark…

“It had slipped from Isildur’s hand and betrayed him; then when a chance came it caught poor Deagol, and he was murdered; and after that Gollum, and it had devoured him. It could make no further use of him: he was too small and mean…[then] it abandoned Gollum. Only to be picked up by the most unlikely person imaginable: Bilbo from the Shire!

“Behind that there was something else at work, beyond any design of the Ring-maker. I can put it no plainer than by saying that Bilbo was meant to find the Ring, and not by its maker. In which case you also were meant to have it. And that may be an encouraging thought.”[24]

Frodo could not fully grasp Gandalf’s point—until, at last, the Ring was gone and the enemy was completely destroyed. It was destroyed not on Frodo’s terms, but in the fullness of time. Frodo obviously realized that if he had to play by the rule, he had to be patient and apply wisdom.

The lesson for us here is that there are indeed powers that are beyond man’s reason and intellect in this world, but Logos will never act in a way that will contradict reason and intellect. This is why we can say with certainty that a movement that acts against reason is anti-Logos and therefore anti-humanity. That movement, as Hegel and Solzhenitsyn perceived, will be destroyed at the end of all things. This means that truth or Logos will prevail.

That indeed is an encouraging thought. But the simple question that every decent and reasonable person must answer is this: Do we have the moral and intellectual courage to follow the truth or Logos? As Solzhenitsyn put it,

“Let each man choose: will he remain a witting servant of the lies, or has the time come for him to stand straight as an honest man, worthy of the respect of his children and contemporaries?”[25]
