Adam Levick at CiF Watch has written a good piece on the English Defence League.

I am cross posting it below, On the English Defence League (the “enemy of my enemy” is sometimes still just my enemy) by Adam Levick.

“I know many people might be tempted by the English Defence League due to their opposition to radical Islam but, in reality, their venom is actually directed against Muslims, as a group – and they often engage in rhetoric suggesting that all Muslims are Jihadists. As such, EDL, it should be clear, is not an anti-totalitarian movement, but rather, a racist one.

Radical Islam, there should be no doubt, represents the biggest threat to the progressive values I cherish – values such as individual liberty, tolerance, religious pluralism, democracy, a free press, gender equality, and gay rights. Further, I view the fight against this radical, anti-Semitic, millenarianistic movement – diffuse though it is (that is, it’s not represented by any one single state actor) – as the moral test of our generation.

More broadly, its tragic that there hasn’t developed a broad-based mainstream coalition to fight radical Islam across the globe – one which unites the anti-totalitarian elements within both the left and the right.

While it is, perhaps, understandable that many see the English Defence League (EDL) as political allies in the fight against Jihadism in Europe, all of the available evidence demonstrates that EDL (grass-roots supporters as well as many within its leadership) is far too compromised by affiliations with neo-Nazis, and other radical racist movements, for principled anti-Islamists to make an allegiance with them.

It is simply a fact that some EDL organizers are proven Neo-Nazis

Wayne Baldwin, member of the EDL’s Birmingham Division

In the video clip in this Modernity post you will see Luke Pippen, EDL’s Welsh Division organizer, in front of a house with his friends, tattooed skinheads giving the Nazi salute.

At an EDL protest in Birmingham fascists and right-wing extremists were clearly visible, some happily giving Nazi salutes. They included Chris Renton, a BNP supporter from Weston-super-Mare, who runs their website.

One face seen at most EDL events is Alan Spence from Newcastle upon Tyne. Spence is pretty much now the EDL organizer in Newcastle. Spence, who is a BNP gold member and has only recently deleted swastikas and Combat 18 images from his Facebook page, has appeared in photographs with both his spiritual leaders, Nick Griffin and Chris Robinson.

Davy Cooling, a fully fledged British National Party (BNP) member, is now a key activist in the EDL Luton “division”. This is demonstrated by his status as administrator of the Luton division’s Facebook group. Cooling still shows interest in the party, as shown by his posting on the Facebook site of the BNP’s 2009 Red, White and Blue Festival, which said: “I may attend, it will be my first one – what’s the score?”

It has been revealed that the leader of the English Defence League is a former BNP member who has served 12 months’ imprisonment for assaulting an off-duty police officer. Self-proclaimed EDL leader Tommy Robinson is really Stephen Yaxley-Lennon, from Bedford.

EDL leader “Tommy Robinson”

Kevin Carroll is considered to be one of the founding fathers of the EDL. It was revealed in a BBC documentary, Young, British and Angry, that he had signed the nomination papers in the 2007 Luton council elections for Robert Sherratt, a BNP candidate and activist in the Nazi November 9th Society.

BNP, it should be noted, is allied, in the European Parliament, with the nationalist Hungarian party, Jobbik, whose leaders advance an often openly anti-Semitic agenda. In a newsletter published by a group calling itself “The trade union of Hungarian police officers prepared for action,” the following was printed. “Given our current situation, anti-Semitism is not just our right, but it is the duty of every Hungarian homeland lover, and we must prepare for armed battle against the Jews.” The editor of the union, Judit Szima, was, at the time, a Jobbik candidate in the upcoming election for the European Union parliament. Szima “didn’t see anything wrong with the content of the article.”

While I’m sure there are plenty of non-racists among the membership of EDL, as well, its clear the group’s leadership is irreparably compromised by racist and extremist allegiances – enough to make me question the motivations of any genuine anti-racist opponents of radical Islam who are flirting with the organization.

Further, there have been some Jews tempted by EDL’s alleged support for Israel, and opposition to anti-Semitism – and EDL has set up a recruitment effort aimed at Jews. In response, many have argued, quite persuasively, that such “support” merely represents a cynical attempt by EDL to gain respectability. And, that, ultimately, such support will vanish once the services of their Jewish allies are no longer required. In such a scenario, it is feared, given EDL’s background and fascist affiliations, it certainly isn’t far-fetched to see them pivot from anti-Islam agitation to anti-Semitism.

As Modernity has pointed out:

“Why [would] neo-Nazis suddenly take a liking to Israelis, and Jews. The problem being is that, neo-Nazis don’t like Jews, and in particular Israel as it is seen as the centre of Jewish power. That is something that all neo-Nazis fear the most. A central theme to Nazism is the notion that Jews control and manipulate events around the world from a central location, in this case Israel. [Warning: illustrative links to original Nazi propaganda, nasty racist material.] It is hardly credible that entrenched neo-Nazis would suddenly wake up one-day and decide “Yes, we like Israelis.” It seems incongruous, and ever so improbable.”

As Jon Benjamin, UK Board of Deputies chief executive, said:

“The EDL’s supposed ‘support’ for Israel is empty and duplicitous. It is built on a foundation of…hatred which we reject entirely.” 

The “enemy of my enemy is my friend” is a tempting but dangerous road to go down. Whether or not the EDL decides to turn on its Jewish/Zionist supporters is not really the main point. What’s at stake is more than our safety. Its our integrity. “

“Our goal is two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side in peace and security,” (President Obama) such is the illusion that resurfaces to restart the peace negotiations that will stabilize the mid-east. For 63 years that “goal” has been the carrot held before the people of the United States and Britain as the ultimate resolution for the Israeli/Palestinian crisis. In reality there is nothing in the statement that is true.

The Israeli government, from its inception in May of 1948 to now, has never had as its “goal” two peoples in two states living in peace and security. Indeed, the opposite has been true: “What should be obvious now, after the carefully researched and scholarly work of Dr. Pappe (The Ethnic Cleansing of Palestine) and …Dr Morris (Righteous Victims), …complemented now with the materials preserved by Sir Richard C. Catling, is the truth about the creation of the State of Israel: the acceptance of UN Resolution 181 by the Jewish Agency Provisional Government as the designated Jewish State was not done with intent to abide by the goal of the UN General Assembly—to provide a state for two peoples in the land of Palestine—but rather to use it as a means to gain eventual control of all the land and cleanse that land of its indigenous people to whatever extent possible.” (The Plight of the Palestinians 6).

In truth the Jewish Agency, from 1939 to the Declaration of the establishment of the State of Israel, acted as a colonial power taking by force the land of the indigenous peoples and maintains that policy to the present day. Jeff Halper tracks over nineteen illusory “peace proposals” aborted by the Israeli government in his detailed article “The Problem with Israel” (11-23-2006 in The Plight of the Palestinians).

If the Israeli government never had as a “goal” peace with the indigenous people, the facts on the ground today clearly establish the consequences of the Israeli intent to eradicate the possibility of a Palestinian State. A cursory look at a map of what remains to the Palestinians now demonstrates the impossibility of a viable state.

  1. Close to 500,000 Israelis live in illegal settlements throughout the West Bank linked by a series of highways traversing Palestinian land serving Israelis only. This means that citizens of another state populate major segments of the proposed Palestinian state and use highways that interconnect to Israel but are not useable by the state that owns the land.

  2. The eastern border of the West Bank, the Jordan River, is no longer the eastern border since Israel has determined unilaterally that it needs a second border for security purposes lest enemies fire rockets or gain access to Israel from Jordan. The land theft here confiscates the richest agricultural land in Palestine as well as major water resources thus denying the Palestinian people necessary subsistence resources for the proposed state.

  3. The entire West Bank is surrounded by an imprisoning wall, a 400 mile barrier of cement and steel that locks the people of Palestine inside with all egress and ingress controlled by the Israeli military. While the Palestinians have welcomed the possibility of UN Peace Keepers along the border of the green line, Israel refuses to relinquish its control.

  4. The Israelis have successfully divided the West Bank into three subareas surrounded by the IDF and the wall making a contiguous state impossible without the complete compliance of the Israeli government. The 500 checkpoints within the West Bank would be removed one assumes should a state be proposed in time; but that has not been determined even now.

  5. Finally, Gaza sits isolated from the West Bank on the edge of the Mediterranean surrounded by the IDF with Egyptian support on the south. The Israeli navy ensures Israeli control in international waters.

A future state for the Palestinians is a mirage; the peace pretense is in fact a delaying tactic to ensure that such a state never exists. No state can be viable without borders that it controls unhindered by another state. No state can exist that does not control the continuity of access to its land, its water, including the sea, and the airspace over it.

No state has the right to take by force another people’s land, to confiscate its most productive arable areas, to steal its aquifers, to deny it the right to self-defense, to dictate what laws it will live by, to build on land within the borders of another and transfer its people to those settlements, and no state has the right to imprison another state with walls of cement and steel determining thereby the borders of that state. It should be clear by now that a state for the Palestinians cannot exist and the peace talks brokered by the United States is a farce.

But if the future state of the Palestinians is a mirage, the present Israeli State mocks the definition of a nation State; a true state has jurisdiction over a given territory. The state of Israel refuses the demarcation of its borders and refuses to abide by the United Nations resolutions that demand it return the land it has illegally occupied to the people of Palestine. Given this defiance, the possibility of establishing “two states, Israel and Palestine, living side by side” can be construed as nothing less than hypocrisy.

Let’s be absolutely clear about “peace in Palestine.” There cannot be a resolution of the crisis between Israel and Palestine unless the United Nations wrests total control of negotiations from the United States. Obama must realize by now that Israel is determining what will be negotiated, when it will be negotiated, with whom it will be negotiated, and at what time it will cease to be negotiated. He must also realize that Israel is using him as a patsy to delay resolution so that Israel can leverage more military ordinance and more billions from the United States knowing full well that nothing will result from these meaningless talks.

And, finally, Obama must understand by now that he can achieve nothing from Israel because the Congress of the United States is owned by Israel, virtually every one of them, more than two thirds in the House and 100% in the Senate. As a result, nothing he might hope to accomplish by way of equity of resolution can be brought into the open without the Congress crying foul against the victimized Israelis. He is literally a slave in the office of the Presidency, shackled to the demands of Israel; his only option is defiance.

Defiance means publicaly recognizing the hypocrisy of America pretending to serve as an objective broker for peace when in fact Israel speaks for America. As matters stand now in Palestine, Israel occupies virtually the entire land area of Mandate Palestine and controls the little that remains to the Palestinians. For Obama to bargain a delay in further construction of illegal settlements when the real issue is the removal of all settlements from Palestinian land if there is to be a distinct state of Palestine is the height of hypocrisy to say nothing of ridiculousness. To bargain with a man, Mahmoud Abbas, who does not legally hold office or speak for all Palestinians, leaving the justly elected Hamas party out of the room, is equally hypocritical and ridiculous.  To bargain a just settlement from this reality is nothing less than a sham.

Peace cannot exist unless justice exists. That means a return to the premises that the UN in 1947 used to create “two states living side by side in peace and security.” How ironic, but how true. Based on UN resolutions since that date, Israel must be forced to relinquish all illegally obtained land by action of the Security Council with America abstaining. By this one act, Obama can free himself from Israeli control, free America to act justly toward both Palestinians and Jews, and show the world that it is no longer tethered to the defiant state of Israel. Allowing the UN resolutions to be acted upon by the world’s communities enables that body to reclaim its purpose as a union created to resolve disputes and foster equity among its members.

For Obama, his defiance will bring him everlasting rewards as a man of principle, of morals, and of compassion, a man who wields only the banner of justice against entrenched power thereby freeing the American flag to unfurl above the White House unencumbered by the chains that have secured it to the will of a few at the expense of the many.

Ensures that the United States is not judged guilty  as America removes itself from the will of the community of nations and brings Israel back into that community as a trusted member not a rogue state that disdains international law and flaunts justice.

Israeli Cabinet passes loyalty bill

October 11, 2010

by Michael Leon  

– Loyalty oath to Jewish state part of ethnic cleansing campaign as Israel veers into fascism –

By Aron Heller

JERUSALEM — Israel’s Cabinet approved on Sunday a bill that would require new citizens to pledge a loyalty oath to a “Jewish and democratic” state, language that triggered charges of racism from Arab lawmakers who see it as undermining the rights of the country’s Arab minority.

Few non-Jews apply for Israeli citizenship so if the bill passes into law, the legislation would not directly affect Arab citizens of Israel, who make up 20 percent of the population.

Nevertheless, it has infuriated the Arab minority and stoked tensions with Palestinians at a time when fledgling peace talks are deadlocked over Israel’s refusal to extend a moratorium on new building in West Bank Jewish settlements.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu defended the bill by saying it reflected the essence of Israel at a time when he said many in the world are trying to blur the connection between the Jewish people and their homeland.

“The state of Israel is the national state of the Jewish people and is a democratic state in which all its citizens — Jews and non-Jews — enjoy full equal rights,” he said. “Whoever wants to join us, has to recognize us.”

Ahmad Tibi, an Arab lawmaker, called the move a provocation.

“Its purpose is to solidify the inferior status of Arabs by law,” he said. “Netanyahu and his government are limiting the sphere of democracy in Israel and deepening the prejudice against its Arab minority.”

Unlike their Palestinian brethren in the West Bank and Gaza Strip, Israel’s Arabs are citizens, with the right to vote, travel freely and to collect generous social benefits. But they have long suffered from second-class status, frequently suffering discrimination in housing and the job market.

While the new bill would not force them to profess their loyalty, it would require a foreign-born spouse to take the oath in order to receive citizenship




repression of non-violence in Beit Ommar, West Bank

While Bil’in’s Abdallah Abu Rahmah is sentenced to a 12-month jail term,

Around 70 Palestinian, Israeli and International solidarity activists demonstrated in Beit Ommar against the Israeli settlement of Kamei Tsur, which is built on village land. Israeli Forces arrested four Palestinians, three international, and one Israeli solidarity activists. An Israeli Special Forces unit disguised in Palestinian clothes snuck of on the rear of the demonstration and arrested three youth. Additionally, the Israeli and international solidarity activists were pepper sprayed before being arrested. Sound bombs and tear gas were used against the demonstrators and members of the press were also beaten.


Yazid Sayigh writing on the First Intifada:

The extensive use by Israel of undercover units to capture or, more frequently, kill intifada activists, couple with its successive decisions to outlaw Fateh’s Shabiba movement, relax IDF rules of fire, and allow widespread use of supposedly non-lethal plastic bullets (which killed dozens of Palestinians in following months) encouraged militarization of the uprising.

Press Release

11 October 2010

Bil’in’s Abdallah Abu Rahmah sentenced to a year in prison
Bil’in protest organizer Abdallah Abu Rahmah was sentenced to 12 months imprisonment today, for his involvement in his village’s unarmed struggle against the wall.

Media contact: Jonathan Pollak +972546327736

Abdallah Abu Rahmah was sentenced today to 12 months in prison, plus 6 months suspended sentence for 3 years and a fine of 5,000 NIS. In the sentencing, the judge cited the non-implementation of an Israeli High Court ruling which declared the current route of the wall on Bil’in’s land illegal as a mitigating factor.

The military prosecution is likely to appeal this sentencing – as they did in the case of Adeeb Abu Rahmah, who was also sentenced for 12 months on similar charges but is still in prison after 15 months, pending the decision about the prosecution’s appeal. The defense attorney, adv. Gaby Lasky, is considering an appeal against Abu Rahma’s conviction.

Today’s sentencing hearing was attended by diplomats from the United Kingdom, the European Union, Belgium, Germany along with representatives of UNSCO and Human Rights Watch.

“The Israeli army, which served as prosecutor, judge and jury in this case, is try to use Abu Rahmah to set an example that will deter people from protesting. They have even said so themselves”, said Mohammed Khatib of the Popular Struggle Coordination Committee. “Their message falls on deaf ears, as we have no choice but to continue struggling for our lands, our freedom and our dignity”, he added.

Abu Rahmah, the coordinator of the Bil’in Popular Committee Against the Wall and Settlements, was arrested last year by soldiers who raided his home at the middle of the night and was subsequently indicted before an Israeli military court on unsubstantiated charges that included stone-throwing and arms possession. Abu Rahmah was cleared of both the stone-throwing and arms possession charges, but convicted of organizing illegal demonstrations and incitement.

An exemplary case of mal-use of the Israeli military legal system in the West Bank for the purpose of silencing legitimate political dissent, Abu Rahmah’s conviction was subject to harsh international criticism. The EU foreign policy chief, Catherine Ashton, expressed her deep concern “that the possible imprisonment of Mr Abu Rahma is intended to prevent him and other Palestinians from exercising their legitimate right to protest[…]”, after EU diplomats attended all hearings in Abu Rahmah’s case. Ashton’s statement was followed by one from the Spanish Parliament.

Renowned South African human right activist, Archbishop Desmond Tutu, called on Israel to overturn Abu Rahmah’s conviction on behalf of the Elders, a group of international public figures noted as elder statesmen, peace activists, and human rights advocates, brought together by Nelson Mandela. Members of the Elders, including Tutu, have met with Abu Rahmah on their visit to Bil’in prior to his arrest.

International human rights organizations Amnesty International condemned Abu Rahmah’s conviction as an assault on the right to freedom of expression. Human Rights Watch denounced the conviction, pronouncing the whole process “an unfair trial”.

Legal Background
Abu Rahmah, the coordinator of the Bil’in Popular Committee Against the Wall and Settlements, was acquitted of two out of the four charges brought against him in the indictment – stone-throwing and a ridiculous and vindictive arms possession charge. According to the indictment, Abu Rahmah collected used tear-gas projectiles and bullet cases shot at demonstrators, with the intention of exhibiting them to show the violence used against demonstrators. This absurd charge is a clear example of how eager the military prosecution is to use legal procedures as a tool to silence and smear unarmed dissent.

The court did, however, find Abu Rahmah guilty of two of the most draconian anti-free speech articles in military legislation: incitement, and organizing and participating in illegal demonstrations. It did so based only on testimonies of minors who were arrested in the middle of the night and denied their right to legal counsel, and despite acknowledging significant ills in their questioning.

The court was also undeterred by the fact that the prosecution failed to provide any concrete evidence implicating Abu Rahmah in any way, despite the fact that all demonstrations in Bil’in are systematically filmed by the army.

Under military law, incitement is defined as “The attempt, verbally or otherwise, to influence public opinion in the Area in a way that may disturb the public peace or public order” (section 7(a) of the Order Concerning Prohibition of Activities of Incitement and Hostile Propaganda (no.101), 1967), and carries a 10 years maximal sentence.




Stuxnet Computer Worm–Israel’s Attempt To Silence Iran on 9/11 or Veiled Threat to the Entire World?

In Uncategorized

October 11, 2010

by crescentandcross 


In mid September, news stories from mainstream media sources featuring Israel as both creator and propagator of a new doomsday computer virus named Stuxnet swept the globe. Unlike the ordinary, run-of-the-mill colds afflicting today’s computers on a regular basis, this new super-bug was unlike anything seen before, literally a weapon of mass destruction given its capabilities of doing apocalyptic damage to the “critical infrastructure”–meaning electricity, water, sewage, oil refineries, telecommunications, national defense, food production, etc–of all industrialized nations.

The reasons for Israel being fingered as the lone gunman in this crime were several. First, the bug in question–while making its way to other parts of the world, nevertheless was disproportionally concentrated in Iran, and–more importantly–targeted the nuclear facility at Natanz whose destruction is numero uno on Israel’s wish list. Next were two “fingerprints” left on the would-be murder weapon, one of them being a reference to the biblical heroine Esther whose reputed actions (celebrated yearly in the Jewish religious festival known as Purim) saved the Jews of Persia (today’s Iran) from yet another in a seemingly-endless parade of persecution of God’s chosen people.

The other was a date left hidden in the code–May 9, 1979, the day that an Iranian Jew named Habib Elghanian was executed by the newly-formed government following the overthrow of the Shah (effectively marking the end of Zionist control over that country) and leading to the flight of tens of thousands of Iranian Jews.

Those experts who were asked to give their diagnoses concerning the who, what, where, when, why and how of this super-flu were near-unanimous in their assertion that the one culprit most likely to have cooked up this technological biological weapon was Israel. Furthermore, they were also in agreement that the virus in question–although concentrated in Iran, nevertheless, was something that directly threatened the fragile systems of the entire world, in that the Stuxnet worm gave hackers command-and-control ability of all critical infrastructure mechanisms of ALL industrialized nations.

All the “big heavies” in terms of mainstream news outlets carrying info on this new-and-improved electronic plague have described it as nothing short of the 4 horsemen of the apocalypse, the scope and scale of which are eerily-reminiscent of the entire Y2K hysteria of over a decade ago. The picture they paint is one where every facet of modern life could be exploited in such a way as to bring about cardiac arrest and subsequent organ failure to the body-politic, where in just a few days’ time otherwise-peaceful/productive metropolises are turned into war zones.

In effect, any outside party with access to such systems is tantamount to someone holding a gun to the head of a nation while making demands.

In other words, according to the news stories as written and presented to the world at large, a Jewish plot to undermine the existing world order not only passed the Censor Judaica, but were allowed to profligate–AND WITH ABSOLTELY NO PROTESTS FROM ORGANIZED JEWISH GROUPS. Remember, this in a day and age when anyone mentioning the particulars concerning who owns the lion’s share of media, banking, and financial interests in the West results in an organized campaign of screeching and howling that leaves ears ringing for months on end.

All the world need remember is the manner by which the banshees were set loose in full-force in a well-coordinated “HOW DARE YOU” crusade to shout down any intelligent, reasonable discussion concerning undeniable massacres such as Operation Cast Lead and the murder of 9 civilians aboard the Mavi Marmara.

And yet, news stories theorizing that Israel was the main culprit in the development and deployment of a computer virus (for all intents and purposes just as devastating as a nuclear weapon for all the mayhem it could directly bring to industrialized countries) and not a peep of protest from the Jewish state or her supporters…“Silent as death,” as the old saying goes, as people worldwide adopt the notion that a “Jewish conspiracy” is afoot threatening total meltdown of the world as we know it with just a computer keystroke…

Which can mean only one thing, which is that it is obviously in Israel’s interest for the world to believe she was/is responsible for releasing this Angel-of Death computer virus upon mankind’s fragile systems necessary for survival…

The reasons for Jewish interests allowing such “anti-Semitic conspiracy theories” to not only receive the light of day but flourish without the typical theatrics all are accustomed to seeing and hearing range from typical run-of-the-mill hypocrisy to deeper, darker motives. In the first case, Israel loves the mystique and the mystery that such theories do for her image, as hers is a culture rooted in the kind of lore where an angry, vengeful god named Yahweh brings destruction upon entire peoples who deal with his chosen people in a manner displeasing and unacceptable.

The other reason is much more troubling in its implications, which is that Israel released the virus not in the interests of destroying Iran’s nuclear program, but rather in conveying the threat to the entire world–”Give us what we want, or else”…

What people watching all these modern-day political dramas must understand first and foremost is that the language spoken between the various players in this political version of The Sopranos is of a completely different dialect from that used by the average peaceable citizen. It is laden with symbolism and subtlety, no different than the coded messages mafia thugs use in communicating certain ideas to both associates and rivals. When Mob bosses such as Netanyahu, who involved in a turf war with rival families and wanting troops from Western countries out on the streets as the “button men” rather than made-members of his own family use language depicting the “danger” the world faces from a nuclear-armed Iran, what he and his associates really mean is that Israel will destroy these Western nations if they don’t “go to the mattresses” in fighting Israel’s wars for her.

Whether it is the implied threat of “going nuclear“, destroying the economies of the West through Zionist control of banking and finance or employing the Sampson Option of bringing the entire house down through the use of a computer virus where Israel is given back-door control of the various functions of all Western nations’ critical infrastructure, the impossible-to-avoid message here to the West is simple–“You can pay now, or pay later”.

The fact that the flurry of news stories detailing the existence of this virus took place a mere 3 days after Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejhad spoke on the floor of the UN General Assembly and brandished one of the biggest guns in his arsenal–meaning the likelihood that the governments of Israel and America colluded with each other in bringing about 9/11–cannot be counted as mere coincidence. His mentioning the unmentionable while literally speaking to the entire planet must have resulted in apoplexy amongst the various criminal elements responsible for bringing this about. What Iran did in effect was to say to the criminal elements in Israel, America and the West conspiring against the Islamic world–

“You wanna play rough? Fine, let’s play rough. Today we’ll talk about your role in 9/11, the Mossad agents arrested that day, the van loaded with explosives headed towards the George Washington bridge and all that…Tomorrow, maybe we’ll talk about the USS LIBERTY and how Israel deliberately murdered 34 American servicemen in the interests of getting America involved in fighting her wars for her in the Middle East…The day after that? Who knows? How about Israel’s role in the assassination of JFK? The list just goes on and on, and before you know it, people in America will start believing things today that they wouldn’t yesterday and then you’ll find yourself in a world of hurt…”

And therefore, in her state of absolute apoplexy, Israel–through her control of Western media–allows the entire world (and most importantly, the governments of the West) know that “time is just about up” and if a recalcitrant Obama does not get busy with his presidential pen in signing the necessary interest-bearing contracts sending American missiles, bombers and troops to Iran, that Israel will wipe America and the West off the map through a meltdown of critical infrastructure.

“Timing is everything”, so the old saying goes, and with that in mind, the explosion across the world-wide media of both the “Stuxnet” computer worm AND the idea that its authors were Jewish and all of this taking place a mere few days after Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejhad’s speech at the U.N. indicates panic and desperation on the part of Israel and her mad dreamers. Indeed, they know their hour is late and therefore are resorting to desperate measures in dealing with desperate times. The fact that a very-visible flight on the part of Obama’s most important Jewish advisors–Emmanuel, Axelrod and Summers–is taking place indicates that indeed the impending chaos planned for America and the West is the torpedo that the rats see approaching the ill-fated ship of state and that this explains their sudden “flight from Egypt”.

But don’t just take our word for it. Instead, let’s consider the dire tone of one Melissa Hathaway, former United States National Cybersecurity Coordinator in speaking of the Stuxnet worm and its potential for devastation–“No country is prepared to deal with it. All of these guys are scared to death. We have about 90 days to fix this before some hacker begins using it…”

More ominous however are the words of war criminal and former Israeli Prime minister Ariel Sharon whose incautious words indicate the real systemic madness afflicting the entire Zionist endeavor–

“Let them tremble, let them call us a mad state. Let them understand that we are a savage country, dangerous to our surroundings, not normal, that we might go wild and start World War Three just like that, or might one day go crazy and burn all the oil fields in the Middle East. Personally, I don’t want to be any better than Harry Truman who snuffed out half a million Japanese with two fine bombs.”

Jewish Religious leaders Say Sexual Seduction of Gentile Enemies is a Jewish “Mitzvah” or an “utmost commandment of Jewish Religious law”

By Rev. Ted Pike

This excellent article by Rev. Ted Pike once again shows the extraordinary nature of the Zionist “religion” which is more like a handbook of Zionist supremacism and war against Gentiles than a moral foundation of laws. For the Zionist religion, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” only applies to fellow Jews. The article quotes recent Jewish  

publications in the Zio=Nazi state of ‘Israel’. The most respected authorities of Judaism say that the laws of the Jewish “religion” impel a Jewish woman, even if she is married at the time, to deceive Gentiles and have sexual intercourse with them for the sake of Jewish interests! 

Question: Is promoting sexual seduction of your enemies the morality of a “religion” or the morality one would expect from an organized crime outfit. One could not imagine Protestant, Catholic or Muslim leaders preaching such a doctrine of immorality. Could you imagine the media response in America if the Pope came out and said that it is not only moral but a Christian imperative for Christian women, even married ones, to sexually seduce enemies of Christiandom or the Catholic Church? Could you imagine Billy Graham promoting such a doctrine. Could you imagine any Muslim leader promoting such a doctrine to Muslim women?

If such a Papal policy were to be exposed it would be one of the leading news stories in our Zionist dominated media. It would be on the front page of the Zionist Owned NY Times and repeated in every newspaper and every newcast all over the world.  The fact is that this latest pronouncement of Zionist leaders is hidden by the mainstream media proves once again the Zionist hegemony over it.

What kind of religion sanctions deception and immorality for the sake of political goals? Orthodox Talmudic Judaism. The Babylonian Talmud encourages Jews to cheat and deceive Gentiles whenever necessary! In fact, “by way of deception” is the motto of Israel’s spy agency Mossad. Official license to deceive and even commit sexual immorality was seen in Israel this week.

Eminent Orthodox Rabbi Ari Shvat responded to a female student’s question about the morality of seducing and sleeping with an enemy. “ I was asked a question by a student of mine who was a religious girl that had been recruited by the Mossad. She wanted to know if a woman was allowed to do this kind of work.” Shvat ruled yes and published an essay in Tehumin, an annual collection of articles on law and modernity. The Jewish World summarizes: “A new Halachic study ruled that seducing an enemy for the sake of national security is an important mitzvah…” It is, in fact, an “utmost mitzvah” (legal command). Shvat’s work was published by the Tzomet Institute, a non-profit organization dedicated to “seamlessly merging Judaism with modern Israeli life.”

In the ruling, Shvat says women can be “used to seduce enemy agents in order to cajole information out of them or see them captured.” Jewish World says such women were used to capture nuclear whistleblower Mordechai Vanunu and to assassinate a senior Hamas operative in Dubai last January. Such deception, says the rabbi, is “Halacha,” or binding Talmudic law. Even with homicidal intent, he writes, “sexual intercourse with a Gentile for the sake of a national cause is not only sanctioned, but is a highly important mitzvah…Our Sages of Blessed Memory elevate such acts of dedication to the top of the Halacha’s mitzvahs pyramid.”

Rabbi Yisrael Rosen, head of Tzomet Institute and editor-in-chief of Tehumin, called the study “daring and important…Although it is highly unlikely that Mossad agents will seek rabbinical advice, this essay is very important and courageous. The author is versed in religious discourse and even conservative rabbis would surely agree with his thesis.”

Shvat’s ruling, reported by a major Jewish news agency, is presented without criticism. It reveals a disturbing, even ominous fact: Talmudic Judaism encourages Jews to ensnare and deceive Gentiles in order to advance Jews and Jewish causes, as long as they can get away with it. If they are caught and Israel is embarrassed, the “holy name of God” (synonymous with Israel’s good reputation) may be blasphemed. If that is a real possibility, the Talmud tells Jews to back off. But in order to save the Jewish nation it is even morally permitted to murder and commit adultery.

God “Outlawed” the Gentiles

The Talmudic position concerning deception of Gentiles is embodied in the Halachic dictum, “It is permitted to deceive a goy (Gentile).” [1] In legal and business matters, the Talmud says Gentiles are beneath equality with Jews. As the 1905 Jewish Encyclopedia explains [2], the Gentiles were “outlawed” by God from the beginning.

The passage in Moses’ farewell address: ‘The Lord came form Sinai, and rose up from Seir unto them; he shined forth from Mount Paran’. . . indicates that the Almighty offered the Torah to the Gentile nations also, but, since they refused to accept it, He withdrew His ‘shining’ legal protection form them, and transferred their property rights to Israel, who observed His law. A passage in Habakkuk is quoted as confirming this claim: ‘God came from Teman, and the Holy One from Mount Paran. . .He stood and measured the earth he beheld, and drove asunder [“outlawed”] the nations.’ . . .the Talmud adds that He had observed how the Gentile nations steadfastly refused to obey the seven moral Noachian precepts, and hence He decided to outlaw them.” (Baba Kama 38a).

The rabbis believed Gentiles demonstrated their stupidity by thinking their own laws were worthy of obeying. The Talmud denies the Gentile status as a “man,” so they are also excluded from being the Jews’ neighbor.

Another reason for discrimination was the vile and vicious character of the Gentiles… With such a character… it would naturally be quite unsafe to trust a Gentile as a witness… He could not be depended upon to keep his promise or word of honor like a Jew.” (Bek. 13b) A Gentile. . . is not a ‘neighbor’ in the sense of reciprocating and being responsible for damages caused by his negligence; nor does he watch over his cattle. Even the best Gentile laws were too crude to admit of reciprocity.

The meaning of these passages is obvious: As animals cannot be “neighbors” to men and as the behavior and laws of the animal world do not require observance by humans, so the Gentile world is beneath the Jewish. This source confirms: “The Torah outlawed the issue of a Gentile as that of a beast.”

In a Jewish Courtroom

Jewish contempt for Gentile law was best illustrated in the courtroom. Imagine a Jewish court in Babylon in 350 A.D. as the Jewish Encyclopedia describes:

It sometimes happened that the Gentile, wishing to take advantage of the liberal Jewish laws, summoned his Jewish opponent to a Jewish court. In such cases the Gentile would gain little benefit, as he would be dealt with by the Jewish or Gentile laws, as might be least advantageous to him. The judge would say: ‘This is in accordance with our law’ or ‘with your law’ as the case might be. If this was not satisfactory to the Gentile, legal quibbles and circumventions might be employed against him.

The primary source for the above quote, Baba Kama 113a (Soncino edition), elaborates:

Where a suit arises between an Israelite and a heathen, if you can satisfy the former according to the laws of Israel, justify him and say: ‘this is our law’; so also if you can justify him by the laws of the heathens justify him and say (to the other party): ‘This is your law; but if this cannot be done, we use subterfuges to circumvent them. This is the view of R. Ishmael, but R. Akiba said that we could not attempt to circumvent them on account of the sanctification of the Name.

However, the same source comments: “but were there no infringement of the sanctification of the Name, we could circumvent him.”

By “sanctification of the Name,” Rabbi Akiba refers to the dignity and reputation of God’s name in the eyes of the world. If lying in the court may bring disrespect to Israel and thus to the God of the Hebrews will, then it had better not be done. The real question about perverting justice against a Gentile is whether a Jew can get away with it. The Jewish Encyclopedia summarizes the majority opinion, stating: “The Mishnah. . .declares that if a Gentile sue an Israelite, the verdict is the for defendant; if the Israelite is the plaintiff, he obtains full damages.” [3]

The Divine Right of Cheating

Outright robbery of a Gentile is not endorsed, but the Talmud makes broad provision for indirect thievery; a Jew doesn’t need to return a lost article to a Gentile. Baba Kama 113b continues: “And with all lost things of thy brother’s: it is to your brother that you make restoration, but you need not make restoration to a heathen.”

As Rabbi Akiba warned, the Jew must avoid bringing God’s name into dishonor by cheating Gentiles. Yet, as a passage in B.K. 113b, 114a reveals, Rabbi Samuel was not above cheating a Gentile out of the full price of a gold bowl, while Rabbi Kahana cheated a Gentile out of both the number and price of a quantity of barrels.

A passage from the Talmud describes with praise how the head of a famous Talmudic academy cheated a Gentile out of a gold bowl for less than even a copper one was worth. This passage continues with examples of cheating from the likes of Rabina and Ashi, sages from the academy at Sura in Babylonia, and the two most important figures in the final editing of the Talmud.

“Public Property”

Despite the fear that defrauding Gentiles might bring dishonor God’s name, the Talmud generally upholds the right of Jews to Gentiles’ property. God “outlawed” Gentiles at Mt. Sinai and their property rights were now Israel’s. The Rabbis by their own decree could at least theoretically declare the property of Gentiles to be ownerless. The Jewish Encyclopedia (p. 621) summarizes:

All retaliation or measures of reprisal are based on the Jewish legal maxim of eminent domain, ‘the judicial authority can annul the right to the possession of property and declare such property ownerless.’

Pharisees: The Original Racists

Perhaps the most remarkable feature of Rabbinic bias against the Gentile was that, in most cases, there is no mention of the possibility that the “goy” is doing his best or is the rightful owner of his property. He is viewed as a member of a class with known characteristics: The Jew is good, the Gentile bad; the Jew must be acquitted, the Gentile convicted. An essentially racist view of human nature was assumed. Indeed, the Pharisees were the original racists. Few religions possess such racist undertones as rabbinic Judaism.

The bad example of the most respected sages of Israel had a widespread and corrosive effect on the relations of Jews with their neighbors. One wonders if the Gentiles were aware of their position as fair game to predatory Jews. Choschen Ham spells out some of the ground rules for exploiting Gentiles:

If a Jew is doing good business with an Akum [Gentile] it is not allowed to other Jews in other places to come and do business with the same Akum. In other places, however, it is different, where another Jew is allowed to go to the same Akum, lead him in, do business with him and to deceive him and take his money. For the wealth of the Akum is to be regarded as common property and belongs to the first who can get it.

And again:

If a Jew is doing business with an Akum and a fellow Israelite comes along and defrauds the Akum, either by false measure, weight, or number, he must divide his profit with his fellow Israelite, since both had a part in the deal, and also to help him along. [4]

Secret Hatred

Just as the Talmud gives Jews the right to cheat Gentiles, so any inquiry into its true teachings by Gentiles is answered deceptively. This continues today. Jews must maintain a well-meaning appearance in order to dwell and trade among Gentiles. A commentary in Abodah Zarah (I, 2, fol. 7b) laments: “Since we are in captivity, we cannot live without trading with them, and we depend upon them for our food, and we must fear them. . . .” (Pranaitis, p. 65) For this reason, Jews were encouraged to practice philanthropy, even toward Gentiles. “Needy Gentiles may be helped as well as needy Jews,” for the sake of peace. [5] Yet such expedients are to be employed only when there is no alternative. “Therefore,” the Talmud says,

If you enter a town and find them celebrating a feast, you may pretend to rejoice with them in order to hide your hatred. Those, however, who care about the salvation of their souls, should keep away from such celebrations. You should make it known that it is a hateful thing to rejoice with them, if you can do it without incurring their enmity. [6] 


No one is allowed to praise them or say how good an Akum is. How much less to praise what they do or to recount anything about them which would redound to their glory. If, however, while praising them you intend to give glory to God, namely, because he has created comely creatures, then it is allowed to do so. [7]

Gentiles: Keep Out

Separatism between Jew and the corrupting Canaanites had a divinely sanctioned purpose in the time of Joshua. But the Pharisees nourished and intensified racism long after its usefulness was done. Gentiles were forbidden from becoming acquainted with the Jewish religion—an instruction never given by God. The Pharisees considered a Gentile so far beneath a Jew that hospitality or religious instruction were forbidden to him. In Sanh. 104a, “Hezekiah b. Hiyya deduces from II Kings XX.18 that he who shows hospitality to a heathen brings the penalty of exile upon his children.” The Jewish Encyclopedia article on “Gentiles” (p. 621) heartily agrees:

The Talmud comments on the untruthfulness of Gentiles (a band of strange children whose mouth speaketh vanity, and their right [in raising it to take an oath] is a right hand of falsehood) and contrasts it with the reputation of a Jew: The remnant of Israel shall not do iniquity nor speak lies; neither shall a deceitful tongue be found in their mouth. (Zeph. iii. 13) [8]

Such holiness may be facilitated by following this suggestion from the Talmud as related by the Jewish Encyclopedia, p. 617, “Judah ben Illai recommends the daily recital of the benediction ‘Blessed be thou… who hast not made me a goy.’”

Why Have Jews Been So Persecuted?

What if these passages from the Talmud weren’t written in the Talmud by authority of the Pharisees but in the New Testament by authority of Jesus? If they were, Jesus’ followers would have become the most despised and mistrusted of men. Christians (if any survived) would have faced discrimination and even banishment from civilized society. People today would laugh at any Christian reply that their sufferings were caused by bigoted nations.

Yet history books in our educational system describe the long saga of Jewish suffering as primarily caused by Christian “anti-semitic” bigotry against “innocent” Jews.

Why have the Jews been exiled from 60 countries since they began to follow the leadership of the Pharisees nearly two millennia ago? It’s because of something toxic within the religion of the Pharisees.

Jesus put it most directly: Rabbinic Judaism is the “synagogue of Satan” (Rev 3:9)—the church that Satan goes to, the religion he inspired and owns.

Four Palestinians, three internationals and one Israeli solidarity activist were arrested by Zio=Nazi Forces during a Palestinian demonstration against Karmei Tsur, an illegal Zionist settlement built on Beit Umar land. The arrested Israeli solidarity activist was injured after the Army held her down and deployed pepper spray directly to her eyes. Several undercover Nazi’s disguised as Palestinians came behind the demonstrators and arrested three Palestinians teenagers.

An additional Palestinian activist with mental disabilities was arrested during the protest. Sound bombs and tear gas were used by Nazi’s  against the demonstrators, and one member of the press had their camera broken by a Gestapo.

Around two dozen Zio=Nazi soldiers and border police blocked the path of the demonstrators, who began to chant against the occupation. Nazi soldiers then began making arrests and firing sound bombs and tear gas directly at protesters. Members of the press were also beaten by Zio=Nazi’s. Some of the youth in the demonstration responded by throwing stones. Karmei Tsur is one of five illegal Zio=Nazi settlements, deemed illegal by international law, that are built on land belonging to Beit Umar villagers.

The demonstration, which takes place in Beit Umar every Saturday, started at around 1pm as 70 Palestinians, supported by International and Israeli solidarity activists, marched towards the Karmei Tsur settlement. The demonstration is organized by the National Committee Against the Wall and Settlements in Beit Umar, and the Palestine Solidarity Project.
