The President Finally Stands Up to the World’s Tormentors—Will All Hell Now Break Loose

“I only regret that I have but one life to give for my country.”

Nathan Hale, during the American Revolution,
just before he was hanged by the British

“Ask not what your country can do for you, ask what you can do for your country.

President John F. Kennedy
Inaugural Address, 1962

Barack Obama was from the start a creation and puppet of the Jews. Now, he is making war against his creators. He’s had enough and isn’t going to take it any longer. Sparks are flying in our nation’s capital. The Jews are angry and they intend to smash this runaway President and his “smart-aleck” black wife, Michelle. The gloves are off and they’re plotting some very, very sinister “payback.” Might it all end with President Obama being assassinated by Israel’s ruthless Mossad?

The Battle Lines Are Drawn

Benjamin Netanyahu, Barack Obama,and Mahmoud Abbas at the recent peace talks.

Already, the battle lines are drawn. It started with Obama telling Israel’s Benjamin Netanyahu that the Israelis must play fair with the oppressed Palestinians and come to peace terms in the Middle East. Obama next instructed General Petraeus to wrap things up in Afghanistan, that he, the President, intended to keep his campaign promise to the American people to be out of Afghanistan by the end of 2011.

The Jews were furious. They want blood, war and territory, not peace. My sources tell me that Jew Rahm Emanuel, White House Chief of Staff, accompanied by Obama’s 2008 campaign chief and now top political advisor David Axelrod, stormed into the Oval Office. Rahm screamed and Axelrod threatened, but Obama held his ground and came back with a shocking proposal: “Rahm, David, I thank you for your past support; now it’s time for us to go our separate ways. I’ll give you til November 1st to pack your bags!”

Taking on the Chicago “Dons”

The two one-time puppet handlers were flabbergasted. The next day, Obama got calls from Chicago’s top Jewish “Dons”—the billionaire who had raised him up from obscurity and made Barack a star. The Crowns, Pritzkeny, Mikvahs, Solows began to put the screws on Obama. It didn’t work!

Then, the President directed Jew Treasury Secretary Timothy Geithner to warn the Red Chinese communists that America would no longer permit the Jews and China to deconstruct the U.S.A. and build China into the New World Order Colossus.

“Tell the Chinese to quit playing with their currency, the Yuan, to let it float upward in accordance with the market,” the President instructed Geithner. “Stop their manipulation, too, of gold and oil markets.”

Geithner nearly fell off his chair.

He stammered and went out the door a mental wreck. Barack Obama, taking up for the American workers and economy, defying the Jew masters who were behind Beijing’s artificial economic success. This was unbelievable.

Just Saying No to Homosexual Perverts and Illegal Aliens

Obama fired his White House budget director, the Jew Peter Orszag. He phoned Nancy Pelosi and Harry Reid and told them he wasn’t going to support the “Dream Act” legislation, the Jews’ plan to give amnesty to millions of illegal aliens.

He next appointed a new Commandant for the Marine Corps, a General who opposed the homosexual agenda and is against ending the military’s “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy of Bush and Clinton.

Then Obama did another bold thing: He ordered his Attorney-General, Eric Holder, the sole black in the Administration with any real authority, to go to the federal appeals court and try to void a lower court’s nullification of the “Don’t Ask, Don’t Tell” policy. Obama is now making war on the satanic Jews who are the movers and shakers behind the perverted homosexual freaks! What a turnabout.

Keeping Campaign Promises—Tax Breaks for Middle Class

And there’s more. His Jewish handlers had instructed Obama to throw out his campaign promise to give the middle class tax breaks. “Do not extend Bush’s tax breaks for the middle class,” they had commanded.

In defiance, in mid-September Obama fired Larry Summers, his Jewish Chairman of the White House’s Council of Economic Advisors and replaced him with an old friend, Austan Goolsbee, Obama then announced he would move to extend the Bush tax cuts for the middle class. The Jewish elite are furious.

Taking on the Jewish-Owned Healthcare Insurers

Another Jewish plan was to have “ObamaCare” passed and then, once the government, under the new law, required all employers and workers to have healthcare insurance, the healthcare insurance corporations—whose stock is owned by wealthy Jewish investors—would jack the price of insurance up to astronomical levels. Indeed, the companies did exactly that. Even before the law goes into effect in 2011, prices for healthcare insurance went up a staggering 27% nationwide—in just three months. The Jews were gleeful and deliriously happy, counting their profits.

But—watch out! Obama got his Secretary of Health and Human Services to write a letter to all the insurance companies threatening them with White House action (IRS audits, Justice Department investigation?) if they so arrogantly continued to shaft American workers by unjustifiably raising prices.

Reportedly, Obama intends to go after Big Pharma, too. He, Attorney-General Holder, and Obama’s FDA are already telling the pharmaceutical giants that their price increases for prescription drugs are outrageous and won’t be tolerated. The corporations are also being warned to stop peddling defective drugs that are killing people.

The Jews, once again, went nuts and Obama’s phone was almost melted with blistering threats from his former “friends.”

The Jews Retaliate

In retaliation, the Jewish media, previously admirers and supporters of everything Obama did—turned sour. The “Messiah” image for Obama in just the last two months has gone out the window.

The Jew-owned newspaper The Washington Post, the same yellow rag that had been used to upend Richard Nixon’s presidency, employed their same journalist Bob Woodward, of Watergate and “Deep Throat” fame, now an associate editor, to write a new book entitled Obama’s Wars, blasting Obama’s White House leadership as inept and fumbling.

In response, Obama, to stay ahead in the PR battle, is coming out with his own book in a few months, a book that will have a favorable picture of Barack, Michelle, and the kids on the front cover.

Meanwhile, Bill O’Reilly, of the Zionist-owned Fox News TV channel, has just released his smear book, Pinheads and Patriots, with a picture of Obama on the cover as a “pinhead.”

So, liberal Democrats, neocon Republicans, and the media, urged on by their Jewish bosses, are all on the attack. The Jews didn’t bargain for an Obama with a spine. What happened to their puppet, the old “Stepan Fetchit village idiot?”

Obama Tired of Being Their “Nigger”

Michelle Obama and Carla Bruni

What had happened? For one thing, Obama was sick and tired of repeating, “Yassa, yassa” to his Jewish masters. Michelle Obama had enough of Rahm Emanuel’s contemptuous attitude toward her and Barack, too. She complained to her husband, Barack: “The Jews treat us and all blacks like we are plantation slaves. They hate us!”

Getting wind of this, the Jews’ lashed out at Michelle with a book published in France, in which France’s First Lady, the prostitute Carla Bruni, says that Michelle told her that living in the White House is “hell.” “I can’t stand it,” Ms. Obama reportedly told Carla Bruni. Bruni, of course, is married to France’s President Sarkozy, a fanatical Zionist Jew born in Hungary, like his Jew pal, George Soros.

The First Lady, Michelle, had been forced by the Jews to replace her black assistant with Susan Cher, a hard-nose Zionist taskmaster. Even her black appointments and social director had been ousted by White House Jewish controllers. Michelle was fed up.

Jewish Lie: “Obama is a Moslem”

Poster in Israel depicting Obama with a Palestinian head-dres

The media went to work to take Barack and Michelle down a few notches. They put out new trash that Obama was “secretly” a Moslem. The Los Angeles Times, Jew-owned as is all the media, threatened to put up a video on YouTube they had previously shelved of Obama years ago speaking to a pro-Palestinian group blasting Israeli treatment of Arabs.

The Jewish elite has also contacted their friends, John Hagee and other Judaizer and Zionists in the Christian evangelical community. Expect harsh, increasing criticism of Obama in coming months and possibly even a huge protest rally by these pseudo-Christians in Washington, D.C., to demonstrate against Obama’s “anti-Semitism” and support for the Palestinians. Hagee and his lying ilk will trumpet: “God is angry at you, Obama, for opposing His Chosen People, Israel!”

Expect Senator John McCain and homos Lindsey Graham and Joseph Lieberman to viciously attack the President, to support Israel and their Jewish overlords. Sarah Palin, too, will join in the unseemly attack. She is 100% a Jewish puppet.

The Obamas countered this week by attending a Christian church in Washington, D.C.—the first time they had done so in months. Michelle now has to put up with the media, which once touted her as a fashion model, suggesting to magazine readers and TV viewers that the First Lady is “frumpy, out of touch, fat, and stupid.”

Pastor Wright and Farrakhan Spill the Beans About the Jews

Barack Obama had been personally hurt when his former pastor, Chicago’s Jeremiah Wright, publicly complained that he couldn’t so much as get in a phone call to the President. “The Jews in the White House—they control Barack; they won’t let him talk to me,” said Wright.

Another old associate, Louie Farrakhan, surprised everyone when, on a national TV program, he revealed that the Jews had “created” Obama and that Chicago billionaire Jews had bragged that “Barack Obama will be America’s first Jewish President.”

“Do you realize,” Farrakhan solemnly told a shocked interviewer, “that before Barack Obama was elected, he was selected?”

Blacks Disappointed in Obama

Moreover, Barack Obama knew of my own video, Rothschild’s Choice: Barack Obama and the Hidden Cabal Behind the Plot to Murder America (Available on DVD), which exposed the Jews’ plans to use Obama as their weapon to communize America and destroy the Constitution. Obama’s ego took a blow when he realized that more and more people saw him as nothing more than a Jewish mouth, a yes-man.

Even most blacks around the nation were beginning to get the message that Obama was owned by rich Jews hostile to American—and black—economic interests. They bristled at the high unemployment rates of blacks and the billions of dollars for bankers and pennies for ordinary Americans. Blacks had begun to abandon Obama in droves, and Barack was heartsick and chafed to think he would go down in history as a traitor both to his own race and to average Americans, white or black.

Obama Joins Other Courageous Presidents

Barack Obama is not the first President to rebel against his Jewish creators and masters. Eisenhower did it and gave his brilliant farewell address warning of the profit-loving, war-mongering “Military-Industrial Complex.” Richard M. Nixon and John F. Kennedy, too, declared private wars against the Jews, the CIA, and the corrupt bankers. Truman before them did the same.

Truman did everything the Jews told him for years, then he got mad and disgusted and kicked Jewish financier Bernard Baruch out of his office and began to turn the screws against the Communists, whom he knew were the creation and secret-loves of the Jews. That was the birth of the successful Truman Doctrine, which was a warning to the Communist Jews in the Kremlin to back-off their plan for more world conquest.

The Jews, in turn, cursed Harry and told him they wouldn’t give him a dime to run for another term as President. They told him that as an ex-President, he would get no lucrative corporate board appointments, and no high-paid speaking gigs either and would have to go back to Independence, Missouri a poor man.

Harry Truman’s response: “Fine—and go to hell!”

Ike, who in 1956 ordered Israel to withdraw its troops from the Sinai, after retirement became a small college President. No big bucks for him after leaving the White House.

JFK was assassinated because the Jews saw he and his brother, Bobby (also murdered), as threats to their whole scheme for global domination. JFK had ordred Israel to give up its nuclear arsenal, and that drove them crazy.

Clinton and both Bushs generally played ball with the Jews, though George, Sr. was forced out of office because he once threatened to cut off foreign aid money to Israel. Clinton did the same and the Jews punished him with the Lewinsky scandal and impeachment.

George W. Bush, however, kissed the soles of the Jews’ shoes. He sent American troops to die in futile Middle Eastern wars for Israel, and co-operated with the Mossad in the 9/11 atrocity. In return, the Jews gave him two terms as President, made him a multimillionaire many time over, and today are publishing he and Laura’s hokey, baloney “memoirs.”

What Will Happen to Obama?

So, what will happen to the brave Barack Obama? Can he win against these beasts who have such a firm grip on the scalps of ordinary American citizens and are even now painting an imaginary target on Obama’s forehead? We shall see. It seems as if Obama is going to try and ally himself closer to what he perceives to be the everyday American. He’ll probably dump a lot of his pro-Wall Street swindler schemes—which his Jewish handlers favored. He’ll support the American workers, and take on Red China’s unfair trade policies. He will fight the bankers, the insurance crooks, and the globalist corporate traitors on Wall Street. He wants to actually become the President of the People, not the special interests. However, he will likely continue to be a left-wing radical, but no longer will Obama be in the hindpocket of the Illuminati Jews.

The Jews Will Kill Him…Or Depose Him

But, can he hold out against the many weapons the Jews have accumulated over the years? The Jewish lobby is going to pull out all stops to destroy the President. If they don’t kill him, they’ll try to embarrass and shame him through fake media stories and so forth. It will be open season against the Jews’ enemy, Barack Obama. If he’s lucky, he’ll be able to stick around until 2012 and be replaced by a more loyal servant of the Jews. If not, he’ll be eliminated—that is, assassinated; he’ll be another JFK.

Even if you and I do not agree with President Obama’s socialist policies, I urge you: Please pray for him, that God would protect him. It would be a disaster if he were to be assassinated. What we should pray for is for good health for the President and that he would abandon his long-held socialist ideas. That would be the best of all things.

Does He Have the Guts to Continue the Battle?

We shall soon see if this man has the guts, the gumption, to be a real man and stand up against such a formidable, sinister combination. We’ll know in a few short months whether President Obama will cave in or continue the battle against these monsters.

The Jews and their cohorts have Satan as their everyday companion and guide and he is crafty, cunning, and an able opponent. My advice to Barack Obama: Humble yourself before God, seek Him and give your life totally over to Jesus. Through Him, the weak are made strong, the desert shall see an abundant rain. You can deserve that Nobel Peace Prize. You can have a lasting legacy. You can defeat the evil force that has so oppressed America and the world. You can overcome.

“And he that overcometh, and keepeth my works unto the end, to him will I give power over the nations.” (Revelation 2:26)
POSTNOTE: Rahm Emanuel is already gone, having resigned October 1st. As unbelievable as it is, his White House associates gave Rahm Emanuel a dead fish as a going away gift. This is, of course, a death sign of the Chicago mafia (Click here to read article). David Axelrod has publicly announced that he, too, is leaving the White House. Larry Summers, also, is departing. Peter Orszag resigned as Budget Director. The other Jews on my Swindler’s List are afraid that they are next. The war heats up.

The War On Terror
by Dr. Paul Craig Roberts
Global Research, October 16, 2010

Does anyone remember the “cakewalk war” that would last six weeks, cost $50-$60 billion, and be paid for out of Iraqi oil revenues?

Does anyone remember that White House economist Lawrence Lindsey was fired by Dubya because Lindsey estimated that the Iraq war could cost as much as $200 billion?

Lindsey was fired for over-estimating the cost of a war that, according to Joseph Stiglitz and Linda Bilmes, has cost 15 times more than Lindsey estimated. And the US still has 50,000 troops in Iraq.

Does anyone remember that just prior to the US invasion of Iraq, the US government declared victory over the Taliban in Afghanistan?

Does anyone remember that the reason Dubya gave for invading Iraq was Saddam Hussein’s weapons of mass destruction, weapons that the US government knew did not exist?

Are Americans aware that the same neoconservarives who made these fantastic mistakes, or told these fabulous lies, are still in control of the government in Washington?

The “war on terror” is now in its tenth year.  What is it really all about?

The bottom line answer is that the “war on terror” is about creating real terrorists. The US government desperately needs real terrorists in order to justify its expansion of its wars against Muslim countries and to keep the American people sufficiently fearful that they continue to accept the police state that provides “security from terrorists,” but not from the government that has discarded civil liberties.

The US government creates terrorists by invading Muslim countries, wrecking  infrastructure and killing vast numbers of civilians. The US also creates terrorists by installing puppet governments to rule over Muslims and by using the puppet governments to murder and persecute citizens as is occurring on a vast scale in Pakistan today.

Neoconservatives used 9/11 to launch their plan for US world hegemony. Their plan fit with the interests of America’s ruling oligarchies. Wars are good for the profits of the military/security complex, about which President Eisenhower warned us in vain a half century ago.  American hegemony is good for the oil industry’s control over resources and resource flows. The transformation of the Middle East into a vast American puppet state serves well the Israel Lobby’s Zionist aspirations for Israeli territorial expansion.

Most Americans cannot see what is happening because of their conditioning.  Most Americans believe that their government is the best on earth, that it is morally motivated to help others and to do good, that it rushes aid to countries where there is famine and natural catastrophes. Most believe that their presidents tell the truth, except about their sexual affairs.

The persistence of these delusions is extraordinary in the face of daily headlines that report US government bullying of, and interference with, virtually every country on earth. The US policy is to buy off, overthrow, or make war on leaders of other countries who represent their peoples’ interests instead of American interests. A recent victim was the president of Honduras who had the wild idea that the Honduran government should serve the Honduran people.

The American government was able to have the Honduran president discarded, because the Honduran military is trained and supplied by the US military. It is the same case in Pakistan, where the US government has the Pakistani government making war on its own people by invading tribal areas that the Americans consider to be friendly to the Taliban, al Qaeda, “militants” and “terrorists.”

Earlier this year a deputy US Treasury secretary ordered Pakistan to raise taxes so that the Pakistani government could more effectively make war on its own citizens for the Americans. On October 14 US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton ordered Pakistan to again raise taxes or the US would withhold flood aid. Clinton pressured America’s European puppet states to do the same, expressing in the same breath that the US government was worried by British cuts in the military budget. God forbid that the hard-pressed British, still reeling from American financial fraud, don’t allocate enough money to fight America’s wars.

On Washington’s orders, the Pakistani government launched a military offensive against Pakistani citizens in the Swat Valley that killed large numbers of Pakistanis and drove millions of civilians from their homes. Last July the US instructed Pakistan to send its troops against the Pakistani residents of North Waziristan. On July 6 Jason Ditz reported on that “at America’s behest, Pakistan has launched offensives against [the Pakistani provinces of] Swat Valley, Bajaur, South Waziristan, Orakzai,and Khyber.”

A week later Israel’s US Senator Carl Levin (D,MI) called for escalating the Obama Administration’s policies of US airstrikes against Pakistan’s tribal areas. On September 30, the Pakistani newspaper, The Frontier Post, wrote that the American air strikes “are, plain and simple, a naked aggression against Pakistan.”

The US claims that its forces in Afghanistan have the right to cross into Pakistan in pursuit of “militants.” Recently US helicopter gunships killed three Pakistani soldiers who they mistook for Taliban.  Pakistan closed the main US supply route to Afghanistan until the Americans apologized.

Pakistan warned Washington against future attacks. However, US military officials, under pressure from Obama to show progress in the endless Afghan war, responded to Pakistan’s warning by calling for expanding the Afghan war into Pakistan.  On October 5 the Canadian journalist Eric Margolis wrote that “the US edges closer to invading Pakistan.”

In his book, Obama’s Wars, Bob Woodward reports that America’s puppet president of Pakistan, Asif Ali Zardari, believes that terrorist bombing attacks inside Pakistan for which the Taliban are blamed are in fact CIA operations designed to destabilize Pakistan and allow Washington to seize Pakistan’s nuclear weapons.

To keep Pakistan in line, the US government changed its position that the “Times Square Bombing” was the work of a “lone wolf.” Attorney General Eric Holder switched the blame to the “Pakistani Taliban,” and Secretary of State Clinton threatened Pakistan with “very serious consequences” for the  unsuccessful Times Square bombing, which likely was a false flag operation aimed at Pakistan.

To further heighten tensions, on September 1 the eight members of a high-ranking Pakistani military delegation in route to a meeting in Tampa, Florida, with US Central Command, were rudely treated and detained as terrorist suspects at Washington DC’s Dulles Airport.

For decades the US government has enabled repeated Israeli military aggression against Lebanon and now appears to be getting into gear for another Israeli assault on the former American protectorate of Lebanon. On October 14 the US government expressed its “outrage” that the Lebanese government had permitted a visit by Iranian President Ahmadinejad, who is the focus of Washington’s intense demonization efforts. Israel’s representatives in the US Congress threatened to stop US military aid to Lebanon, forgetting that US Rep. Howard Berman (D,CA) has had aid to Lebanon blocked since last August to punish Lebanon for a border clash with Israel.

Perhaps the most telling headline of all is the October 14 report, “Somalia’s New American Primer Minister.” An American has been installed as the Prime Minister of Somalia, an American puppet government in Mogadishu backed up by thousands of Ugandan troops paid by Washington.

This barely scratches the surface of Washington’s benevolence toward other countries and respect for their rights, borders, and lives of their citizens.

Meanwhile, to silence Wikileaks and to prevent any more revelations of American war crimes, the “freedom and democracy” government in DC has closed down Wikileaks’ donations by placing the organization on its “watch list” and by having the Australian puppet government blacklist Wikileaks.

Wikileaks is now akin to a terrorist organization. The American government’s practice of silencing critics will spread across the Internet.

Remember, “they hate” us because we have “freedom and democracy”, First Amendment rights, habeas corpus, respect for human rights, and show justice and mercy to all.

The World According to Gordon Duff

by Peter B. Collins on August 24, 2010

PBC Podcast 167 [1:13:32m]: Play Now | Play in Popup | Download

Gordon Duff, senior editor at Veterans Today, offers a sweeping view of America’s wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, the WikiLeaks saga, and the events of 9/11. Duff, a Marine veteran of Viet Nam, claims intelligence sources worldwide, especially in Pakistan. He asserts that most events called “terrorism” are false flag events, that Israel’s Mossad is in control of much of the disinformation in circulation today, that bin Laden has been dead for years, that all top officials of the Federal Reserve are dual citizens with “Israeli passports in their dresser drawers next to the marijuana”, that North Korea’s submarines and the nuke they tested came from Israel, and that the WikiLeaks leaks were orchestrated in Tel Aviv. He also has a very different view of Pakistan’s ISI and the insurgents lumped together as the “Taliban”. Duff is an amiable man whose rambling narrative is loaded with information that can’t be proved or disproved by those of us without security clearances, yet his worldview is fascinating and very different from corporate media reports and “conventional wisdom”. Your humble host encourages you to listen with an open mind and adequate skepticism, and decide for yourself.

Jewish Religious Leaders in Israel Command Jewish women to Sleep

with the Enemy!

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

Commentary by Dr. David Duke: This excellent article by Rev. Ted Pike once again shows the extraordinary nature of the Jewish “religion” which is more like a handbook of Jewish supremacism and war against Gentiles than a moral foundation of laws. For the Jewish religion, “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” only applies to fellow Jews. The article quotes recent Jewish publications in 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 Jewish dominated media. It would be on the front page of the Jewish Owned NY Times and repeated in every newspaper and every newcast all over the world.  The fact is that this latest pronouncement of Jewish leaders is hidden by the mainstream media, and that proves once again the Jewish hegemony over it.–dd

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.

By Gordon Duff STAFF WRITER/Senior Editor

“Initially, groups, Zionists, “banksters” and con men of all kinds rushed to the side of the neocons, seeing them as “hapless bumpkins” both naive and “on the make.”  It was believed that, behind every “family values” type was a thief, a child molester or an ambitious “sell out” looking to exploit the stupidity of those around them and prey on fear and ignorance…and to a large extent, this has been correct.”

When President Obama took office in January, 2009, it was expected he would do as he had promised, end the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, wars he claimed were illegal and immoral, close the prison at Guantanamo, end the drone attacks on Pakistan and restore the constitutional rights lost under the Bush administration through the Patriot Acts and other ill advised legislation.

A new investigation into 9/11, along with investigations of the manipulation of intelligence leading to the invasion of Iraq and the shameful torture and rendition programs and the massive financial crimes that crashed the American economy in 2007 was also expected.  In fact, one of the common discussions prior to the election was whether President Bush and Vice President Cheney would resign, seeking pardon’s from their successor, on the expectation that criminal proceedings would lead to their eventual arrest and imprisonment for war crimes or even treason.

Two years later, President Obama is a virtual “ghost.”  Everything he promised to undo is the same or worse.  Even more surprising, the mainstream media says nothing about these promises being broken.  How long will we wait for the questions, “When will former Vice President Cheney be arrested,” or “Are there plans to control ‘death squads’ in Afghanistan or begin to curtail the massive heroin exports from that country?”

President Obama is silent on these and other issues and the press, normally on a chief executive like a pack of dogs, remains oddly silent.  Does anyone detect the smell of tyranny?

We are now receiving clear evidence from sources within the military that by 2007, civilian control of the United States, though not entirely over, had been severely compromised.  Most American’s aren’t aware of the “Dominionist” movement that began in the late 1970s.  Their goal was to take control of the military forces of the United States in order to overthrow the government and replace it with a “Christian” government, a theocracy, overthrowing the constitutional republic we now have.

This would be a military dictatorship.

The president would be “nominally” in charge but foreign policy, particularly in line with issues involving the Middle East and Israel would be controlled by a group from within the military in conjunction with their allies in the media, banking and extremist groups, both American and Israeli “Taliban.”   This group would control Homeland Security, the Department of Justice, the Supreme Court, stacked with “Dominionist” allies, backers and those compromised for “other reasons.”

Even the Mormon Church, a Christian offshoot organization, once actually at war with the United States, that runs Utah, Arizona, Nevada, New Mexico, Wyoming, Idaho and part of Western Colorado as a private fiefdom, has thrown in with the Dominionists, in fact, the Catholic Church, besieged on all sides by scandals, is onboard with them too.

Key members of congress would fall into line, managed by committee assignments and the new campaign finance laws, including the application of aspects of McCain-Feingold that allow the highly organized Israel lobby to “buy” members of the House of Representatives with ease, flooding any district with cash, controlling primary elections, even overseeing judicial elections and appointments.

This week, Fox/Newscorp owner, Israeli Likudist Rupert Murdoch put $1,000,000 into one election alone in Ohio.

In the end, nothing promised would ever get done.  Attempts to regulate financial thievery would be blocked, prosecutions of financial criminals would be blocked and, conversely, the criminal justice system would we wielded, under repressive and illegal statutes, enforced by endless overlapping agencies unaccountable and even unattributable, as a tool of social upheaval.  The pre-staging of a militaristic and theocratic tyranny has long taken root and infested every federal agency.

Take a look at the world around you.


“Dominionism” is the religious basis for “neo-conservatism,” the establishment of corporate based totalitarian rule under military authority.  Packaged and sold as a return to “traditional values” or as providing security from nearly endless threats, foreign and domestic, invariably manufactured, often staged and carefully sold to the public through a “dramatized” press tasked with “softening up” the public to accept dictatorship, the neo-conservatives have been surprisingly flexible.

With the core of Dominionist teachings dependent on a reinterpretation of the KJV bible, stressing an apocalyptic end times scenario dependent on Jews settling in the Middle East, American sects, long known for their anti-Semitism are now ardent “pro-Zionists.”  The “rub” as it were, being that, once the “end times” come, Jews are destined to either convert to Christianity or suffer a repeat of the holocaust, this time at the hands of their new found friends.

As a trade off, their reward to offset the eventual end of Judaism or the destruction of the Jewish people, the State of Israel has been offered the full and unrestricted use of America’s military forces to retake what Zionists believe to be the Jewish homeland, all of the Middle East from the Nile in Egypt to the Euphrates in Iraq, from the Turkish border to Mecca in the south.


American conservatives, as we know them, rose from two areas, “big money” from the East Coast mob, the “Skull and Bones” types and the isolationist Midwest, groups that resented anyone of other than Northern European ancestry and Protestant worship practices.  During the 1930s, both groups came together behind a single cause, support of Adolf Hitler as a potential savior of the world, and the elimination of Jews as a threat to Christian civilization.

Toward that end, American banking firms, headed by the Bush family and others, underwrote, not only rebuilding Hitler’s arms industry but supported the Nazi racial policies as well.  Millions of Americans were staunchly behind Adolf Hitler, Time Magazines “Man of the Year” for 1940.  After World War II, we erased all of this from our history.  It had become an inconvenient truth.

We even erased and have tried to cleanse even the internet of records of the 1934 “Business Plot” which was to install a Fascist dictatorship in Washington based on the German model, concentration camps, ovens and all, a plot originated by the same people we now call “neo-conservatives” or “Christian Zionists” or “Dominionists.”

Thus, the strange marriage between Israel and the Dominionists is not unlike the marriage between Hitler and Germany’s Jewish Zionists who believed that Hitler was going to “export” Jews to Palestine.  From Sara Powell’s brilliant review of Lenni Brenner’s Zionism in the Age of Dictators:

“…however difficult it may be, the reader must confront some rather disturbing conclusions. The most unsettling realization for this reviewer is that pre-Holocaust Zionists were able to politically align themselves with the Nazis because both groups fundamentally saw race as an important dividing line-and, moreover, were determined to keep it that way. From Vladimir Jabotinsky to Albert Einstein, “assimilation” of Jews into the societies in which they lived was not an acceptable option…. As Jabotinsky explained, “It is impossible for a man to become assimilated with people whose blood is different from his own” (p. 10); in Einstein’s words, “Palestine is first and foremost not a refuge for East European Jews, but the incarnation of a reawakening sense of national solidarity” (p. 29). Finally, David Yisraeli, a member of the Stern Gang, wrote the following in late 1940, as part of a proposal to Hitler.

It was delivered in 1941 to two German diplomats in Lebanon:

3. The establishment of the historic Jewish state on a national and totalitarian basis, bound by a treaty with the German Reich, would be in the interest of a maintained and strengthened future German position of power in the Near East (p. 301).

Another disturbing conclusion a reader must inevitably face is that Zionists learned both tactical and political lessons from the Nazis and that, even today, these lessons are applied to further the Zionist cause.  Although most likely known to potential readers of this book, another disturbing element is the cover-up of the less than savory roles of current Israeli leaders, including former prime ministers, in the terrorist Irgun and Stern Gang just before, during, and after the Holocaust.  Likewise, the succumbing of various U.S. officials to Zionist pressure is a familiar, but distressing, story.”

As noted, this isn’t the first time Jewish leadership has aligned itself with destructive elements, nor are they the only ones to do so.  Americans favoring an end to illegal immigration have aligned themselves with Dominionists who, by and large, are backed by corporate sponsors dependent on, not only the influx of cheap, illegal foreign labor but exporting American jobs as well.


Initially, groups, Zionists, “banksters” and con men of all kinds rushed to the side of the neocons, seeing them as “hapless bumpkins” both naive and “on the make.”  It was believed that, behind every “family values” type was a thief, a child molester or an ambitious potential “sell out” looking to exploit the stupidity of those around them and prey on fear and ignorance.  To a large extent, this has been correct but the fallout, especially economically, has been much worse than anyone had anticipated.  Few had foreseen a credit crunch that would dry up even the funds financial criminals used to underwrite their own schemes.

9/11, the Patriot Acts, torture and rendition, the invasion of Iraq, the oil price “run-ups” and the toxic derivative crash that destroyed the American economy in 2007 would not have been possible without Israeli “friends” in the press managing public opinion and deflecting criminal inquiries.  Even when the public learned that the invasion of Iraq was based on falsified intelligence, nothing was done. Similarly, the same “capability” that created the phony “WMD” intelligence reports also created non-existent terrorist organizations, helped produce and distribute counterfeit “bin Laden” threats and even staged terrorist attacks.


The movement began in Colorado Springs, home of the Air Force Academy.  The goal was to take control of the Air Force, control all promotions, assignments, all incoming officers candidates and use the Air Force academy to indoctrinate a generation of officers to oppose the American government.  Veterans Today has been approached, not only by numbers of officers candidates reporting this bizarre plot but we have also been informed that the “Dominionists” claim total control of West Point and the Naval Academy at Annapolis along with full control of the officer corps of both those services.

The Marine Corps seems to be immune.  A letter received by a group supporting military freedom in the military outlined the problem with the Marine Corps.  They were said to “lack Christian spirit” evidenced by their continued support of the constitution.


There were serious repercussions when the public was inadvertently made aware of this plot in August 2007.  A group of “Dominionists” stole 6 nuclear weapons from Minot Air Force Base in South Dakota.  These weren’t “inadvertently loaded” as the cover-up implies.  It is impossible for nuclear weapons to be loaded on a B 52 bomber by accident.  80 members of the Air Force were “fired” for this “mistake” and as many as 10 have been “suicided” or “accidented” since.  There is, however, a strong rumor, no more than a rumor but one within the military community that at least one nuclear weapon is still unaccounted for.  No proof of this allegation has been received.

However, this incident represented, during the Bush (2) administration, not just a total breakdown of the “good order and discipline” of the Air Force but something more serious, even more serious that mutiny.  As this involved strategic nuclear weapons and the total compromise of our nuclear command authority, it represented a transfer of authority from the President of the United States to a group operating outside the government, it represented a partial “coup.”

Since that time, no American president has had definitive control over America’s nuclear forces, reliable control of our nuclear arsenal.  Both President Bush and Obama thus lacked command authority.  Moreover, President Obama, upon taking office, assumed a presidency whose authority and power were compromised by the failure of President Bush to respond to this attack on America from the extreme right, in fact, the middle of his own constituency.


Proof is piling up that the Department of Defense played a role in 9/11.

The majority of the world’s credible scientists and engineers have proven beyond a doubt that the destruction of the World Trade Center was caused by a controlled demolition.   The “hard science” is there, not just that, “hard evidence” is there also.  The residue from the demolition was found everywhere, has been analyzed, and there are no longer any doubts.

Moreover, every aspect of the investigation has been proven compromised, openly interfered with and this has been carefully documented but not widely reported in the United States.  The trail is leading three directions:

1.     An Arab terrorist group began planning the 9/11 attacks during the late 1990s but was infiltrated by the Mossad and/or agents working for the CIA

2.     Their efforts were supplemented, paralleled, augmented and eventually replaced by a vast and highly complex domestic “false flag” attack designed to realign the world.

3.     Israel, with its control of the media and its ability to operate openly inside the United States with impunity due to a compromised security relationship, CIA, DOJ, FBI, would take the lead in carrying out the attacks.  Arabs would quickly be blamed and a carefully scripted press would “seal the deal” while a rigged investigation was already “in the can.”

Recently, the Pentagon paid $47,000 for 9,500 copies of Operation Dark Heart, the memoir of Lt. Col. Anthony Shaffer.  We were told it contained classified information on Afghanistan, information that would aid the enemy.  This was a lie.  What it contained was a chapter on Operation Able Danger, a Pentagon effort involving Shaffer and other officers using the internet or “open source” information to track terrorist organizations.  Shaffer and his group, Captain Scott Phillpott, James D. Smith and Major Eric Kleinschmidt identified, as early as 1999, the group accused of responsibility for the 9/11 attack and created a chart showing the structure of the terrorist organization.  Mohammed Atta, reputed leader of the 9/11 operation, was prominently featured, his photograph adorned the “number one” position.

When attempts were made to inform the FBI through chain of command, all information on the hijackers was ordered destroyed by the Department of Defense and the group’s efforts to warn appropriate counter-terrorist organizations were silenced.

Then they were ordered to destroy their materials.

In 2005, 9/11 Commission Chairman Thomas Kean, said he was aware of the report but no evidence was given backing up the claims of foreknowledge of 9/11.  However, on June 14, 2004, an unnamed high ranking Navy officer informed the 9/11 Commission that he had reviewed the charts and other materials we now know to have been destroyed by the government.  The Commission chose to ignore this report and omit any record of it from their findings, evidence that, not only did the government have full knowledge of the accused hijackers 2 years in advance but destroyed evidence and protected the terrorists.  The Commission was unable to give any credible reason to fail to investigate these serious allegations.


When President Nixon refused to hand over documents to the Watergate investigators, claiming “executive privilege,” he said he did so in the interest of protecting the power of the presidency.  Nixon explained that only a powerful presidency could protect the nation from tyranny, popular sentiment shifting congress to an extreme, the military and its history of feudalistic tendencies or the “monied interests” that have always bought and sold the United States Senate since its inception.  Nixon said he looked on the presidency as a stewardship yet his forced resignation is the only such occurrence in over two centuries of American history.

Nixon, often accused of bouts of paranoia, when reexamined in light of where American history has gone, was a veritable “Nostradamus.”

These “checks and balances” of the constitution are those really intended by the Founding Fathers, yes, protecting capital from seizure by the “underclasses” for sure but also allowing a nation state to develop in a world, at the time, bereft of representative government in any form, on any continent.

President Washington and later, President Eisenhower, warned of the “military industrial complex,” in their own ways.  Neither would have imagined that the issue of separation of church and state, a critical aspect of the constitution under continual attack on the grounds of “moral necessity,” would be the weakness that would bring about failure of representative government in the United States, that “hapless bumpkins” would bring down America.

Today we watch a presidency in paralysis.  Any threat to stop criminal activity in the private sector is met with accusations of “socialism.”  Attempts to seek peace and keep promises are seen as favoring terrorism and showing his true “Muslim” roots.  In truth, no president has ever faced the likelihood of assassination, hardly at the hands of an extremist or “lone gunman” but at the hands of the powerful forces that surround him.

These threats, these tactics meant to enfeeble the presidency, encumber democracy and paralyze the government are nothing compared to the dangers America faces with strategic nuclear forces under the control of an apocalypse death cult, the “American Taliban” that runs the Air Force Academy and other service academies in a manner more consistent with prison camps than schools.  Proselytizing, not only through intimidation but the systematic use of “mind control” techniques, decades of these practices, has created a monster among us, a military force no longer American in the sense that serving the constitution and supporting democratic ideals defines “American.”

Truth and the American mind …

In struggle with the American mind

Since The Great Flood hit Pakistan in July …

  • many millions have been displaced, evacuated, stranded or lost their homes; numerous roads, schools and health clinics destroyed
  • hundreds of villages washed away
  • millions of livestock have perished; for the rural poor something akin to a Western stock market crash that wipes out years of savings
  • countless farms decimated, including critical crops like corn; officials say the damage is in the hundreds of millions of dollars and it does not appear that Pakistan will recover within the next few years
  • infectious diseases are rising sharply
  • airplanes of the United States of America have flown over Pakistan and dropped bombs on dozens of occasions 1

I direct these remarks to readers who have to deal with Americans who turn into a stone wall upon hearing the United States accused of acting immorally; America, they are convinced, means well; our motives are noble. And if we do do something that looks bad, and the badness can’t easily be covered up or explained away … well, great powers have always done things like that, we’re no worse than the other great powers of history, and a lot better than most. God bless America.

A certain percentage of such people do change eventually and stop rationalizing; this happens usually after being confronted X-number of times with evidence of the less-than-beautiful behavior of their government around the world. The value of X of course varies with the individual; so don’t give up trying to educate the hardened Americans you come in contact with. You never know when your enlightening them about a particular wickedness of their favorite country will be the straw that breaks their imperialist-loving back. (But remember the warning from Friedrich Schiller of Germany: Mit der Dummheit kämpfen Götter selbst vergebens. — “With stupidity even the gods struggle in vain.”)

Here’s a recent revelation of wickedness that might serve to move certain of the unenlightened: New evidence has recently come to light that reinforces the view of a CIA role in the murder of Patrice Lumumba, the first prime minister of The Congo following its independence from Belgium in 1960. The United States didn’t pull the trigger, but it did just about everything else, including giving the green light to the Congolese officials who had kidnaped Lumumba. CIA Station Chief Larry Devlin, we now know, was consulted by these officials about the transfer of Lumumba to his sworn enemies. Devlin signaled them that he had no objection to it. Lumumba’s fate was sealed. 2

It was a classic Cold War example of anti-communism carried to absurd and cruel lengths. Years later, Under Secretary of State C. Douglas Dillon told a Senate investigating committee that the National Security Council and President Eisenhower had believed in 1960 that Lumumba was a “very difficult if not impossible person to deal with, and was dangerous to the peace and safety of the world.” 3 This statement moved author Jonathan Kwitny to observe:

How far beyond the dreams of a barefoot jungle postal clerk in 1956, that in a few short years he would be dangerous to the peace and safety of the world! The perception seems insane, particularly coming from the National Security Council, which really does have the power to end all human life within hours. 4

President Eisenhower personally gave the order to kill the progressive African leader. 5

We can’t know for sure what life for the Congolese people would have been like had Lumumba been allowed to remain in office. But we do know what followed his assassination — one vicious dictator after another presiding over 50 years of mass murder, rape, and destruction as competing national forces and neighboring states fought endlessly over the vast mineral wealth in the country. The Congo would not hold another democratic election for 46 years.

Overthrowing a country’s last great hope, with disastrous consequences, is an historical pattern found throughout the long chronicle of American imperialist interventions, from Iran and Guatemala in the 1950s to Haiti and Afghanistan in the 1990s, with many examples in between. Washington has been working on Hugo Chávez in Venezuela for a decade.

Just like the commercials that warn you “Don’t try this at home”, I urge you not to waste your time trying to educate the likes of Thomas Friedman of the New York Times, who not long ago referred to “the men and women of the US Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine Corps” as “the most important peacekeepers in the world for the last century.” 6 What can you say to such a man? And this is the leading foreign policy columnist for America’s “newspaper of record”. God help us. The man could use some adult supervision.

A man named Barack Obama

For many years I have not paid a great deal of attention to party politics in the United States. I usually have only a passing knowledge of who’s who in Congress. It’s policies that interest me much more than politicians. But during the 2008 presidential campaign I kept hearing the name Barack Obama when I turned on the radio, and repeatedly saw his name in headlines in various newspapers. I knew no more than that he was a senator from Illinois and … Was he black?

Then one day I turned on my kitchen radio and was informed that Obama was about to begin a talk. I decided to listen, and did so for about 15 or 20 minutes while I washed the dishes. I listened, and listened, and then it hit me … This man is not saying anything! It’s all platitude and cliché, very little of what I would call substance. His talk could have been written by a computer, touching all the appropriate bases and saying just what could be expected to give some hope to the pessimistic and to artfully challenge the skepticism of the cynical; feel-good language for every occasion; conventional wisdom for every issue. His supporters, I would later learn, insisted that he had to talk this way to be elected, but once elected — Aha! The real genuine-progressive, anti-war Barack Obama would appear. “Change you can believe in!” Hallelujah! … They’re still saying things like that.

Last week Obama gave the traditional annual speech at the opening of the United Nations General Assembly. 7 To give you an idea of whether the man now sincerely expresses himself “outside the box” at all, here’s what he had to say about Pakistan: “Since the rains came and the floodwaters rose in Pakistan, we have pledged our assistance, and we should all support the Pakistani people as they recover and rebuild.” Does he think no one in the world knows about the American bombs? Did he think he was speaking before sophisticated international diplomats or making a campaign speech before Iowa farmers?

Plus endless verbiage about the endless Israeli-Palestine issue, which could have been lifted out of almost any speech by any American president of the past 30 years. But no mention at all of Gaza. Oh, excuse me — there was one line: “the young girl in Gaza who wants to have no ceiling on her dreams”. Gosh, choke. One would never know that the United States possesses huge leverage over the state of Israel — billions/trillions of dollars of military and economic aid and gifts. An American president with a minimum of courage could force Israel to make concessions, and in a struggle between a thousand-pound gorilla (Israel) and an infant (Hamas) it’s the gorilla that has to give some ground.

And this: “We also know from experience that those who defend these [universal] values for their people have been our closest friends and allies, while those who have denied those rights — whether terrorist groups or tyrannical governments — have chosen to be our adversaries.”

Such a lie. It would be difficult to name a single brutal dictatorship of the Western world in the second half of the 20th Century that was not supported by the United States; not only supported, but often put into power and kept in power against the wishes of the population. And in recent years as well, Washington has supported very repressive governments, such as Saudi Arabia, Honduras, Indonesia, Egypt, Kosovo, Colombia, and Israel. As to terrorist groups being adversaries of the United States — another item for the future Barack Obama Presidential Liebrary; as I’ve discussed in this report on several occasions, including last month, the United States has supported terrorist groups for decades. As they’ve supported US foreign policy.

“Yes, of course it’s nice to have a president who speaks in complete sentences. But that they’re coherent doesn’t make them honest.” — John R. MacArthur, publisher of Harper’s Magazine. 8

The secret to understanding US foreign policy

In one of his regular “Reflections” essays, Fidel Castro recently discussed United States hostility towards Venezuela. “What they really want is Venezuela’s oil,” wrote the Cuban leader. 9 This is a commonly-held viewpoint within the international left. The point is put forth, for example, in Oliver Stone’s recent film “South of the Border”. I must, however, take exception.

In the post-World War Two period, in Latin America alone, the US has had a similar hostile policy toward progressive governments and movements in Guatemala, Salvador, Nicaragua, Honduras, Grenada, Dominican Republic, Chile, Brazil, Argentina, Cuba, and Bolivia. What these governments and movements all had in common was that they were/are leftist; nothing to do with oil. For more than half a century Washington has been trying to block the rise of any government in Latin America that threatens to offer a viable alternative to the capitalist model. Venezuela of course fits perfectly into that scenario; oil or no oil.

This ideology was the essence of the Cold War all over the world.

The secret to understanding US foreign policy is that there is no secret. Principally, one must come to the realization that the United States strives to dominate the world. Once one understands that, much of the apparent confusion, contradiction, and ambiguity surrounding Washington’s policies fades away. To express this striving for dominance numerically, one can consider that since the end of World War Two the United States has:

The 9/11 Truth Movement

The Truthers have long been pressing me to express my support for their cause. Here’s how I stand on the issue. I’m very aware of the serious contradictions and apparent lies in the Official Government Version (OGV) of what happened on that fateful day. (Before the Truthers can be dismissed as “conspiracy theorists”, it should be noted that the OGV is literally a “conspiracy theory” about the fantastic things that a certain 19 men conspired to do.) It does appear that the buildings in New York collapsed essentially because of a controlled demolition, which employed explosives as well as certain incendiary substances found in the rubble. So, for this and many other questions raised by the 9/11 Truth Movement, the OGV can clearly not be taken entirely at face value but has to be seriously examined point by point. But no matter what the discrepancies in the OGV, does it necessarily follow that the events of 9/11 were an “inside job”? Is it an either/or matter? Either a group of terrorists were fully responsible or the government planned it all down to the last detail?

What if the government, with its omnipresent eyes and ears, discovered the plotting of Mideast terrorists some time before and decided to let it happen — and even enhance the destruction — to make use of it as a justification for its “War on Terror”? The Truthers admit that they can’t fully explain what actually took place, but they argue that they are not obliged to do so; that they have exposed the government lies and that the fact of these lies proves that it was an inside job. The Truthers have done great work, but I say that for me, and I’m sure for many others, to accept the idea of an inside job I have to indeed know what actually took place, or at least a lot more than I know now. It is, after all, an incredible story, and I need to know how the government pulled it off. I need to have certain questions answered, amongst which are the following:

  1. Were the planes that hit the towers hijacked?
  2. Did they contain the passengers named amongst the dead?
  3. Were they piloted or were they flying via remote control?
  4. If piloted, who were the pilots?
  5. Did a plane crash in Pennsylvania? If so, why? What happened to the remains of the plane and the passengers?
  6. Did a plane crash into the Pentagon? What happened to the remains of the plane and the passengers?
  7. Why do Truthers say that some, or many, of the named Arabic hijackers have been found alive living abroad? Why couldn’t their identity have been stolen by the hijackers?

If the Truthers can’t answer any or most of the above questions, are they prepared to consider the possibility of 9/11 being a “let-it-happen” government operation?

Do words have to mean something?

“Holocaust denier barred from leading tour at Auschwitz”. That was the headline over a short news item in the Washington Post on September 22. The story, in full, read: “British historian and Holocaust-denier David Irving will not be permitted to give tours at Poland’s Auschwitz-Birkenau State Museum, museum officials said Tuesday after the controversial historian arrived in Poland to lead a tour of Nazi sites. Irving told the British Daily Mail on Friday that Treblinka was a genuine death camp but that Auschwitz was a ‘Disney-style tourist attraction’.”

So how can Irving be called a “Holocaust-denier” if he says that the Nazi concentration camp at Treblinka “was a genuine death camp”? I don’t know. Do you? Why don’t you ask the Post? They never reply to my letters. And while you’re at it, ask them why they and their columnists routinely refer to Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad as a “Holocaust-denier”. You might even point out to them that Ahmadinejad said in a speech at Columbia University (September 24, 2007), in reply to a question about the Holocaust, “I’m not saying that it didn’t happen at all. This is not the judgment that I’m passing here.”

Indeed, I don’t know if any of the so-called “Holocaust-deniers” actually, ever, umm, y’know, umm … deny the Holocaust. They question certain aspects of the Holocaust history that’s been handed down to us, but they don’t explicitly say that what we know as the Holocaust never took place. Yes, I’m sure you can find at least one nut-case somewhere.

Speaking of nut-cases, two days after Ahmadinejad spoke at Columbia, Congressman Duncan Hunter (R.-CA) introduced legislation “To prohibit Federal grants to or contracts with Columbia University” (HR 3675, 110th Congress). I’m surprised he didn’t call for a Predator to fly over the campus and drop a few bombs. Don’t ya just love our Congressmembers? Soon to be joined it seems by a few Teaparty types who think that Barack Obama is a socialist. (If Obama is a socialist, what, I wonder, do they call Hugo Chávez? Or Karl Marx?) The new Madame Speaker of the House may be Alice in Wonderland.

Zionist Power in America . . .

The State And Local Bases Of

Zionist Power In America

By James Petras


Any serious effort to understand the extraordinary influence of the Zionist power configuration over US foreign policy must examine the presence of key operatives in strategic positions in the government and the activities of local Zionist organizations affiliated with mainstream Jewish organizations and religious orders.

There are at least 52 major American Jewish organizations actively engaged in promoting Israel’s foreign policy, economic and technological agenda in the US (see the appendix). The grassroots membership ranges from several hundred thousand militants in the Jewish Federations of North America (JFNA) to one hundred thousand wealthy contributors, activists and power brokers in the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC). In addition scores of propaganda mills, dubbed think tanks, have been established by million dollar grants from billionaire Zionists including the Brookings Institute (Haim Saban) and the Hudson Institute among others.

Scores of Zionist funded political action committees (PAC) have intervened in all national and regional elections, controlling nominations and influencing election outcomes. Publishing houses, including university presses have been literally taken over by Zionist zealots, the most egregious example being Yale University, which publishes the most unbalanced tracts parroting Zionist parodies of Jewish history (Financial Times book review section August 28/29 2010). New heavily funded Zionist projects designed to capture young Jews and turn them into instruments of Israeli foreign policy includes “Taglit-Birthright” which has spent over $250 million dollars over the past decade sending over a quarter-million Jews (between 18-26) to Israel for 10 days of intense brainwashing (Boston Globe August 26, 2010). Jewish billionaires and the Israeli state foot the bill. The students are subject to a heavy dose of Israeli style militarism as they are accompanied by Israeli soldiers as part of their indoctrination; at no point do they visit the West Bank, Gaza or East Jerusalem (Boston Globe August 26, 2010). They are urged to become dual citizens and even encouraged to serve in the Israeli armed forces.

In summary the 52 member organizations of the Presidents of the Major American Jewish Organizations which we discuss are only the tip of the iceberg of the Zionist Power Configuration: taken together with the PACs, the propaganda mills, the commercial and University presses and mass media we have a matrix of power for understanding the tremendous influence they have on US foreign and domestic policy as it affects Israel and US Zionism.

While all their activity is dedicated first and foremost in ensuring that US Middle East policy serves Israel’s colonial expansion in Palestine and war aims in the Middle East, what B’nai B’rth euphemistically calls a “focus on Israel and its place in the world”, many groups ‘specialize’ in different spheres of activity. For example, the “Friends of the Israel Defense Force” is primarily concerned in their own words “to look after the IDF”, in other words provide financial resources and promote US volunteers for a foreign army (an illegal activity except when it involves Israel). Hillel is the student arm of the Zionist power configuration claiming a presence in 500 colleges and universities, all affiliates defending each and every human rights abuse of the Israeli state and organizing all expenses paid junkets for Jewish student recruits to travel to Israel where they are heavily propagandized and encouraged to ‘migrate’ or become ‘dual citizens’.

Method: Studying Zionist Power

There are several approaches for measuring the power of the combined Zionist organizations and influential occupants of strategic positions in government and the economy. These include (a) reputational approach (b) self claims (c) decision-making analysis (d) structural inferences. Most of these approaches provide some clues about Zionist potential power. For example, newspaper pundits and journalists frequently rely on Washington insiders, congressional staff and notables to conclude that AIPAC has the reputation for being one of the most powerful lobbies in Washington. This approach points to the need to empirically examine the operations of AIPAC in influencing Congressional votes, nomination of candidates, defeating incumbents who do not unconditionally support the Israeli line. In other words analyzing the Congressional and Executive decision- making process is one key to measuring Zionist power. But it is not the only one. Zionist power is a product of a historical context, where media ownership and wealth concentration and other institutional levers of power come into play and shape the current decision-making framework. Cumulative power over time and across institutions creates a heavy bias in the political outcomes favorable to Israel’s organized agents in America. Once again the mere presence of Jews or Zionists in positions of economic, cultural and political power does not tell us how they will use their resources and whether they will have the desired effect. Structural analysis, the location of Zionists in the class structure, is necessary but not sufficient for understanding Zionist power. One has to proceed and analyze the content of decisions made and not made regarding the agenda of Israel’s backers operating in the USA. The 52 major Zionists organizations are very open about their claims to power, their pursuit of Israel’s agenda and their subservience to each and every Israeli regime.

Those who deny Zionist power over US Mid East foreign policy are left-Zionists namely Noam Chomsky and his acolytes. They never analyze the legislative process, executive decision-making, the structures and activity of the million member Zionist grassroots and the appointments and background of key policy makers deciding strategic policies in the Middle East. Instead they resort to superficial generalizations and political demagogy, imputing policy to “Big Oil” and the “military-industrial complex” or “US imperialism”. Categories devoid of empirical content and historical context about real existing policy making regarding the Middle East.

The Making of Zionist Power in the US Government

To understand US submission to Israeli war policies in the Middle East one has to look beyond the role of lobbies pressuring Congress and the role of political action committees and wealthy Zionist campaign contributions. A much neglected but absolutely essential building block of Zionist power over US foreign economic, diplomatic and military policy is the Zionist presence in key policy positions, including the Departments of Treasury and State, the Pentagon, the National Security Council and the White House.

Operating within the top policymaking positions, Zionist officials have consistently pursued policies in line with Israel’s militarist policies, aimed at undermining and eliminating any country critical of the Jewish States’ colonial occupation of Palestine, its regional nuclear monopoly, its expansion of Jews only settlements and above all its strident efforts to remain the dominant power in the Arab East. The Zionist policymakers in Government are in constant consultation with the Israeli state, ensuring coordination with the Israeli military (IDF) command, its Foreign Office and secret police (MOSSAD) and compliance with the Jewish State’s political line. Over the past 24 months not a single Zionist policymaker has voiced any criticism of Israel’s most heinous crimes, ranging from the savaging of Gaza to the massacre of the humanitarian flotilla and the expansion of new settlements in Jerusalem and the West Bank. A record of loyalty to a foreign power which even exceeds the subservience of the Stalinist and Nazi fellow travelers in Washington during the 1930s and 1940s.

Zionist policymakers in strategic positions depend on the political backing and work closely with their counterparts in the “lobbies” (AIPAC) in Congress and in the national and local Jewish Zionist organizations. Many of the leading Zionist policymakers rose to power through a deliberate strategy of infiltrating the government to shape policy promoting Israel’s interest over and above the interests of the US populace. While a degree of cohesion resulting from a common allegiance to Tel Aviv can account for suspected nepotism and selection, it is also the case that the powerful Jewish lobbies can play a role in creating key positions in Government and ensuring that one of their own will occupy that position and pursue Israel’s agenda.

Stuart Levey: Israel’s Foremost Operative in the US Government

In 2004, AIPAC successfully pressured the Bush Administration to create the office of Undersecretary for Terrorism and Financial Intelligence (UTFI) and to name its protégé Princeton graduate Stuart Levey to that position. Before, but especially after his appointment, Levey was in close collaboration with the Israeli state and was known as an over the top Zionist zealot with unbounded energy and blind worship of the Israeli state.

Within the confines of his Zionist ideological blinders, Levey applied his intelligence to the singular task of turning his office into the major foreign policy venue for setting US policy toward Iran. Levey more than any other appointed official in government or elected legislator, formulates and implements policies which profoundly influence US, European Union and UN economic relations with Iran. Levey elaborated the sanctions policies, which Washington imposed on the EU and the Security Council. Levey, organizes the entire staff under his control at Treasury to investigate trade and investment policies of all the world’s major manufacturing, banking, shipping, petroleum and trading corporations. He then criss-crosses the US and successfully pressures pension funds, investment houses, oil companies and economic institutions to disinvest from any companies dealing with Iran’s civilian economy. He has gone global, threatening sanctions and blackballing dissident companies in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and North America which refuse to surrender economic opportunities. They all understood Levey operated at the behest of Israel, services Levey has proudly performed.

Levey coordinates his campaign with Zionist leaders in Congress. He secures sanctions legislation in line with his campaigns. His policies clearly violate international law and national sovereignty, pressing the limits of extra territorial enforcement of his administrative fiats against a civilian economy. His violation of economic sovereignty parallels Obama’s announcement that US Special Forces would operate in violation of political sovereignty on four continents. For all intents and purposes, Levey makes US policy toward Iran. At each point he designs the escalation of sanctions, and then passes it on to the White House, which shoves it down the throats of the Security Council. Once new sanctions approved by Levey and staff are in place they are there to enforce them: identifying violators and implementing penalties. Treasury has become an outpost of Tel Aviv. Not a single leftist, liberal or social democratic publication highlights the role of Levey or even the terrible economic pain this Old Testament fanatic is inflicting on 75 million Iranian civilian workers and consumers. Indeed like Israel’s Judeo-fascist rabbis who preach a “final solution” for Israel’s enemies, Levey announces new and harsher “punishment” against the Iranian people (Stuart Levey, “Iran’s New Deceptions at Sea Must be Punished” FT 8/16/2010, p. 9). Perhaps at the appropriate moment the Jewish State will name a major avenue through the West Bank for his extraordinary services to this most unholy racist state.

The Strategic Role of Local Power

The Israel Lobby Archive recently released declassified documents of the American Zionist Council (AZC) subpoenaed during a US Senate investigation between 1962-63. The documents reveal how the Israeli state through its American Jewish conduits ­ the mainstream Zionist organizations ­ penetrated the US mass media and propagated its political line, unbeknownst to the American public. Stories written by a host of Jewish Zionist journalists and academics were solicited and planted in national media such as The Readers Digest, The Atlantic Monthly, Washington Post among others, including regional and local newspapers and radio stations (Israel Lobby Archive, August 18, 2010). While the national Zionist organizations procured the journalists and academic writers and editors, it was the local affiliates who carried the message and implemented the line. The level of infiltration the Senate subpoenaed Zionist documents in the 1960’s reveal has multiplied a hundred fold over the past 50 years in terms of financing, paid functionaries and committed militants and above all in structural power and coercive capability.

While the national leaders in close consultation with Israeli officials receive instructions on which issues are of high priority, the implementation follows a vertical route to regional and local leaders, politicians, and notables who in turn target the local media and religious, academic and other opinion leaders. When national leaders ensure publication of pro Israeli propaganda, the locals reproduce and circulate it to local media and non-Zionist influentials on their “periphery”. Letter campaigns orchestrated at the top are implemented by thousands of militant Zionist doctors, lawyers and businesspeople. They praise pro-Israel scribes and attack critics; they pressure newspapers , publishing houses and magazines not to publish dissidents. The national and local leaders promote hostile reviews of books not promoting the Israeli line, influence library decisions to pack their shelves with pro Israeli books and censor and exclude more balanced or critical histories. Local militants in co-ordination with Israeli consuls saturate the public with thousands of public meetings and speakers targeting Christian churches, academic audiences and civic groups; at the same time local Zionist militants and, especially millionaire influentials, pressure local venues (university administrators, church authorities and civic associations) to disinvite any critic of Israel and their supporters from speaking. In the last resort, local Zionists demand that a pro-Israel propagandist be given equal time, something unheard of when an Israel apologist is scheduled to speak.

Local Zionist organizations make yeoman efforts to recruit mayors, governors, local celebraties, publishers, church people and promising young ethnic and minority leaders by offering them all expenses paid propaganda junkets to Israel and then to write or give interviews parroting what they were fed by Israeli officials. Local leaders mobilize thousands of militant activist Zionists to attack anti-Zionist Jews in public and private. They demand they be excluded from any media roundtables on the Middle East.

Local Zionist functionaries form rapid response committees to visit and threaten any local publisher and editorial staff publishing editorials or articles questioning the Israeli party line. Local leaders police (“monitor”) all local meetings, speaker invitations, as well as the speeches of public commentators, religious leaders and academics to detect any “anti-Zionist overtones’ (which they label “covert anti-Semitism”). Most of the major Jewish religious orders are lined up as the clerical backbone of local Israeli fundraising, including the financing of new “Jews only” settlements in the Palestinian West Bank.

Local functionaries are in the forefront of campaigns to deny independent Middle East specialists and public policy academics, appointments, tenure or promotion, independently of the quality of their scholarship. On the other hand, academic hacks who toe the pro-Israel line, by publishing books with blanket attacks on Israeli critics among Christians and Muslims and countries like Turkey, Iran or whoever is a target of Israeli policy, are promoted, lauded and put on the best seller list. Any book or writer critical of Zionist Power or Israel is put on a local and national ‘index’ and subject to an inquisition by slander from a stable of Jewish Torquemadas.


The power of Israel in the US does not reside only in the influence and leadership of powerful Washington based “pro-Israel lobbies”, like AIPAC. Without the hundreds of thousands of militant locally-based dentists, podiatrists, stockbrokers, real estate brokers, profesors and others, the “lobby” would be unable to sustain and implement its policy among hundreds of millions of Americans outside the major metropolises. As we have seen from the Senate declassified documents, over a half-century ago, local Zionist organizations began a systematic campaign of penetration, control and intimidation that has reached its pinnacle in the first decade of the 21st century. It is no accident or mere coincidence that University officials in Northern Minnesota or upstate New York are targeted to exclude speakers or fire faculty members critical of Israel. Local Zionists have computerized databanks operating with an index of prohibited speakers, as the Zionists themselves admit and flaunt in contrast to “liberal” Zionists who are prone to label as “anti-Semitic” or “conspiracy theorists” writers who cite official Zionist documents demonstrating their systematic perversion of our democratic freedoms.

Over the decades, the distinction between Zionist power exercised by a “lobby” outside the government and operatives “inside” the government has virtually vanished. As we have seen, in our case study, AIPAC secured the undersecretary position in Treasury, dictated the appointment of a key Zionist operative (Stuart Levey) and accompanies his global crusade to sanction Iran into starvation and destitution. The planting of operatives within key Middle East positions in government is not the simple result of individual career choices. The ascent of so many pro-Israel Zionist to government posts is part of their mission to serve Israel’s interest at least for a few years of their careers. Their presence in government precludes any Senate or Congressional investigations of Zionists organizations acting as agents of a foreign power as took place in the 1960’s.

As the major Zionist organizations and influentials have accumulated power and abused the exercise of power on behalf of an increasingly bloody racist state, which flaunts its dominance over US institutions, public opposition is growing. The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions campaign is gaining strength even in the US (see Harvard divestment in Israeli companies). US public support for Israel, by all measures, has dropped below 50%, while polls in Western Europe show a marked increase in hostility to Israel’s ultra-rightist regime. Anti-Zionist Jews are growing in influence especially among young Jews who are appalled by the Israeli slaughter in Gaza and assault on the humanitarian flotilla. Equally important the presence of anti-Zionist Jews on panels and forums has given courage to many otherwise intimidated non-Jews who heretofore were fearful of being labeled “anti-Semitic”.

The Zionist power configuration rests on a declining population base: most young Jews marry outside the confines of the ethno-religious Jewish-Israeli nexus and many of them are not likely to form the bases for rabid campaigns on behalf of a racist state. The Zionist leadership’s high intensity and heavily endowed effort to fence in young people of Jewish ancestry via private schools, subsidized “summer programs” in Israel etc. are as much out of fear and recognition of the drift away from clerical chauvinism as it is an attempt to recruit a new generation of Israel First militants.

The danger is that the US Zionist support for the ultra-rightist and racist regime in Israel is leading them to join forces with the far right in the US. Today Jewish and Christian Manhattan rednecks are fermenting mass Islamic hatred (the so called “Mosque controversy”) as a distraction from the economic crises and rising unemployment. Zionist promotion of mass Islamofobia, so near to Wall Street, where many of their fat cats who profit from plundering the assets of America operate, is a dangerous game. If the same enraged masses turn their eyes upward toward the wealthy and powerful instead of downward to blacks and Muslims, some unpleasant and unanticipated surprises might rebound against, not only Israel’s operatives, but all those wrongly identified as related to a misconstrued Jewish Motherland.
