Facts not Fairies

Dedicated to the world’s Victims of Jewish Terror, Jewish Racism and Jewish Anti-Semitism

“I am not concerned that anyone would think Israel is a terrorist regime. Everybody knows a terrorist and rogue regime when they see one.” –Zionist Benjamin Netanyahu

“Terrorism is the best political weapon for nothing drives people harder than a fear of sudden death.” – Zionist Adolf Hitler

The Jew World Order

Jewish Neocon Michael Ledeen, in his book, The War Against The Terror Masters, admits World Conquest by the Jews. Since 911 the term ‘terrorism’ has been adopted by the Zionist terrorists and placed at the heart of their political discourse. That discourse, it is to be remembered, is not a dialogue but a monologue. There is no debate. The Media are not only handed the analytical viewpoint, but also the vocabulary they have to use.

Mossad,  provoked America’s air strike on Libya in 1986 by making it appear that terrorist orders were being transmitted from the Libyan government to its embassies around the world. But the messages originated in Israel and were re-transmitted by a special communication device – a “Trojan horse” – Mossad had placed inside Libya by their worldwide network of Sayanim.

Sayanim are residents of other countries who co-operate with the Katsas (Mossad case-officers). ‘

There are thousands of sayanim around the world. In London alone, there are about 2,000 who are active, and another 5,000 on the list.”

Dimitri Khalezov’s Nuclear Demolition Videos Being Scrubbed Off Web!

.

On March 15, 2010 Having watched all 26 videos by Dimitri Khalezov, I posted them here @ Facts Not Fairies. There was a total silence from the the ‘9/11 Truthers’ on these most amazing videos – except for a few forums here and there. Youtube has since censored these videos and are being censored throughout the web. Dimitri Khalezov websites have also been taken down. Now is your chance to watch, download, upload these videos and spread the truth.

Glenn Canady says

Here’s the deal. Somebody is busy trying to remove all videos about Dimitri Khalezov’s nuclear demoltion theory out of existence on the Internet. At the end of this article I’m going to list all the pages that show this censorship. I feel that Dimitri’s theory is the best one because it fits ALL the evidence. He also wrote a book on the entire thing which I want to read also. This type of scrubbing never happened with the Nano Thermite theory. I still believe nano thermite could have been used because something melted a lot of steel before the 150kT nuclear demolotion charges were blown in all 3 buildings. I will cover this first and then give you links where you can see all the videos being scrubbed off the web. Please post links to this article on your facebook walls so we can get people to be aware of Dimitri’s excellent research on this.

Why I believe nuclear demolition fits all the evidence we know about.

They didn’t call it “ground zero” for nothing! Before 911, ground zero only meant the area below or above a nuclear detonation, after 911, they changed some of the dictionaries to say it was also the place where terrorists attacked the trade centers. It’s all mind control.

Dimitri Khalezov has been an expert in nuclear demolition for many years and has an incredible amount of proof that the buildings were taken down by underground micro nuclear demolition charges! I’ve posted some links to other material such as the melted cars that could have only been done by EMP type effects caused by a nuclear bomb since there was no jet fuel burning at ground level AND some of these cars were missing engine blocks! They were totally melted! How do you melt an engine block when no fire was burning at ground level – many of these cars were 7 blocks away! They were never explained in any way. Also it was never explained why Tritium levels were 55 times more than normal at ground zero. And of course we have ALL the strange cancers from first responders and many of them have died. They were forced to wear “air quality” badges which Dimitri says were really just radiation detectors in disguise so they could monitor everybody’s exposure and pull people out of the hot zones for a while when their badges reported higher radiation. Easy to lie to everybody and tell them the badge is to monitor air quality. That is pure garbage if you think about it. There is not going to be that much difference in “air quality around such a relatively small area anyway.
Dimitri even said that in the 70’s he was told that the Americans had authorized the twin towers to be taken down at the end of their lifetimes with small nuclear demolition charges! I did some research and it was true! It was determined that only a nuclear demolition charge could safely bring down both Towers and Building 7 because of their construction. Here’s some good information on nuclear demolition… (Continued below the videos )

Information on Nuclear Demolition plans for Trade Center buildings Can you believe that? Here I find out that the original PLAN for the trade towers was to take them down by nuclear demolition charges and nobody in our government or press reported this! Of course they didn’t want that information reported because people would start putting the pieces together. The Russians knew it because they were informed of it in the 70s. Dimitri even remembers everybody getting a good laugh at the crazy Americans plan to destroy a skyscraper with a nuclear demolition charge when he was a young man working in the field. Apparently the Sears tower in Chicago also will be taken down by a 150
Kt nuclear demolition charge at the end of its life also. If you ever see that one fall down by after a bombing or airplane and it comes down all nice and neat you can be sure that a demolition nuke brought that down too because the experts concluded that only a nuclear demolition charge could do it properly.

Information about Melted Cars many blocks away from Ground Zero
This was not caused by Jet Fuel! There was no jet fuel even on the ground. Some of these melted cars were 7 blocks away from the buildings! There was no fire anywhere near these vehicles and jet fuel can’t melt engine blocks anyway! Only an EMP from a nuclear detonation or a energy weapon can do this. There is no other explanation of all the melted cars. But those cars weren’t mentioned in the report either!

Raja Mujtaba on Mark Glenn’s Show

Posted on 15. Feb, 2011 by Raja Mujtaba in Interviews

Egyptian Revolution Hijacked – Raja Mujtaba

Mark Glenn of The Ugly Truth, a Christian but a friend of Islam works on the promotion of interfaith harmony. He interviewed Raja Mujtaba after reading the article by Dr Anwar Ul Haque’s article Jesus In Islam.

Besides talking on the commonalities between Christianity and Islam, Mark Glenn raised a number of current issues happening in the Muslim World.

Egyptian revolution is not only the most current but also the most important one. The developments in Egypt will not only have impact within the Arab world but its ripples would go far and beyond; Pakistan would be no exception.

Its shockwaves have already shaken Yemen, Jordan, Algeria etc. The dynastic rule in Syria, Saudi Arabia and Libya are also threatened. In essence the kingdoms all over the Muslim world will topple to a new order.

In Egypt, the old guards are still intact. The top five generals who are holding the fort are all pro US and Israel. They have committed to abide by all the international treaties meaning that they would hold all treaties with Israel and honour the same. If this be the case, then the people of Egypt will find no relief or change to their advantage.

The US and Israel have used the people of Egypt to make them feel as if they were the catalyst of change but the actual power has not been transferred to the people, power remains where it was.

The Egyptian army is buying time, they have given six months time for the constitutional changes or framing a new one. As the time goes, army will be better entrenched, people will not be able to hold on to Tahrir Square and its not easy to mobilize the people repeatedly.

This revolution would only have been more meaningful had the old generals also been sent packing along with Hosni Mubarak. Why the revolution in Iran succeeded that the people in power cleansed the Iranian army of the American and Israeli influence in its Armed Forces.

Talking on Pakistan, the American and the Israeli thrust to breakup Pakistan or Pakistan’s reaction if Iran is attacked, it was made clear that being a Shia or Sunni state makes no difference. To be either, one has to be a Muslim. This divide is being wedged in by the Zionists but the Muslims within themselves have no such feelings. They have inter marriages and live in harmony but the Zionists and Zionist dominated America are working on this theory to create rifts amongst the different sects of Islam.

Israel or the US cannot attack Iran without containing Pakistan.  Not only the people of Pakistan are very enthusiastic about being Muslims but have nuclear teeth also. Therefore Pakistan would be no pushover.

American presence in Afghanistan is primarily to contain Pakistan for which they want to delink her from China and Islam besides denuclearizing it. Towards that end, they are busy stirring trouble and terrorism in Pakistan. In this mode, India is also a part of this nefarious and ugly game.

Raymond Davis is just the tip of the iceberg. Ever since his arrest, there have been no drone attacks in Pakistan. He killed 2 with his gun, the third was run over by the vehicle that came to rescue him but had to flee from the scene before it was exposed as to the baggage of explosives it was carrying.

Strange thing that American diplomats are terrorists. Raymond has confessed that he is a consultant and not a diplomat. Hillary Clinton and her State office are bringing enormous pressure on Pakistan to grant Davis a diplomatic status.

Even if its assumed that Davis was a diplomat, that does not give him the license to kill. For any crimes of that nature he would be tried according to the law of the land.

America is threatening to break off all diplomatic relations with Pakistan; it would be a sad affair but if they want to do so let them please themselves. Pakistan is quite used to living under sanctions, this would be a blessing in disguise.

Muslims and Christians have all in common but for a few things. The major difference being the trinity. Islam has no such concept, the God is all by Himself, He was neither born of anyone nor did He give birth to anyone. The God is free of all such worldly needs.

The Zionists are working to create a faithless society that has no belief in the God and the life after death. When this concept of life after death is attacked and people made to believe in this then it becomes very easy to set in all the social immoralities as is happening in the West where the institution of family has been destroyed; single parenting, gay culture and other such activities are being encouraged.

The Muslim and the Christian scholars can always sit and have a scholastic dialogue to settle the differences.


Has WAR become America’s religion ?

The Anti-Empire Report

February 3rd, 2011
by William Blum

A cautionary tale

In July of 1975 I went to Portugal because in April of the previous year a bloodless military coup had brought down the US-supported 48-year fascist regime of Portugal, the world’s only remaining colonial power. This was followed by a program centered on nationalization of major industries, workers control, a minimum wage, land reform, and other progressive measures. Military officers in a Western nation who spoke like socialists was science fiction to my American mind, but it had become a reality in Portugal. The center of Lisbon was crowded from morning till evening with people discussing the changes and putting up flyers on bulletin boards. The visual symbol of the Portuguese “revolution” had become the picture of a child sticking a rose into the muzzle of a rifle held by a friendly soldier, and I got caught up in demonstrations and parades featuring people, including myself, standing on tanks and throwing roses, with the crowds cheering the soldiers. It was pretty heady stuff, and I dearly wanted to believe, but I and most people I spoke to there had little doubt that the United States could not let such a breath of fresh air last very long. The overthrow of the Chilean government less than two years earlier had raised the world’s collective political consciousness, as well as the level of skepticism and paranoia on the left.

Washington and multinational corporate officials who were on the board of directors of the planet were indeed concerned. Besides anything else, Portugal was a member of NATO. Destabilization became the order of the day: covert actions; attacks in the US press; subverting trade unions; subsidizing opposition media; economic sabotage through international credit and commerce; heavy financing of selected candidates in elections; a US cut-off of Portugal from certain military and nuclear information commonly available to NATO members; NATO naval and air exercises off the Portuguese coast, with 19 NATO warships moored in Lisbon’s harbor, regarded by most Portuguese as an attempt to intimidate the provisional government. In 1976 the “Socialist” Party (scarcely further left and no less anti-communist than the US Democratic Party) came to power, heavily financed by the CIA, the Agency also arranging for Western European social-democratic parties to help foot the bill. The Portuguese revolution was dead, stillborn. 1

The events in Egypt cannot help but remind me of Portugal. Here, there, and everywhere, now and before, the United States of America, as always, is petrified of anything genuinely progressive or socialist, or even too democratic, for that carries the danger of allowing god-knows what kind of non-America-believer taking office. Honduras 2009, Haiti 2004, Venezuela 2002, Ecuador 2000, Bulgaria 1990, Nicaragua 1990 … dozens more … anything, anyone, if there’s a choice, even a dictator, a torturer, is better.

We are so good even our enemies believe our lies

I’ve devoted a lot of time and effort to the question of how to reach the American mind concerning US foreign policy. To a large extent what this comes down to is trying to counterbalance the lifetime of indoctrination someone raised in the United States receives. It comes in news stories every day.

On January 27, the Washington Post ran a story about the State Department personnel who were held hostage at the American embassy in Tehran, Iran for some 14 months, 1979-81. The former hostages were preparing to hold a 30th anniversary remembrance the next day.

“It was wrong on every conceivable count,” said L. Bruce Laingen, who was the charge d’affaires. “It was absolutely wrong. … That is my most vivid memory today.” Former political officer John W. Limbert agrees, saying that he “would take any opportunity” to tell his captors “what a terrible thing they had done by their own criteria.”

What criteria, I wonder, did the man think his Iranian captors were guided by? In 1954, the United States had overthrown the democratically elected government of Mohammad Mossadegh, resulting, as planned, in the return to power from exile of the Shah. This led to 25 years of rule by oppression including routine torture as the Shah was safeguarded continuously by US military support. Is this not reason enough for Iranians to be bitterly angry at the United States? What was Mr. Limbert thinking? What do Americans who read or hear such comments think? They read or hear distorted news reports pertaining to America’s present or historical role in the world every day, and like in the Washington Post article cited here — there’s no correction by the reporter, no questions asked, no challenge put forth to the idea of America the Noble, America the perpetual victim of the Bad Guys.

Atheist: “Blasphemy is a victimless crime.”

Salman Taseer was murdered in Pakistan a few weeks ago. He was the governor of Punjab province and a member of the secular Pakistan People’s Party. The man who killed him, Mumtaz Qadri, was lauded by some as a hero, showering rose petals on him. Photos taken at the scene show him smiling.

Taseer had dared to speak out against Pakistan’s stringent anti-blasphemy law, calling for leniency for a Christian mother sentenced to death under the blasphemy ban. A national group of 500 religious scholars praised the assassin and issued a warning to those who mourned Taseer. “One who supports a blasphemer is also a blasphemer,” the group said in a statement, which warned journalists, politicians and intellectuals to “learn” from the killing. “What Qadri did has made every Muslim proud.”2

Nice, really nice, very civilized. It’s no wonder that decent, god-fearing Americans believe that this kind of thinking and behavior justify Washington’s multiple wars; that this is what the United States is fighting against — Islamic fanatics, homicidal maniacs, who kill their own countrymen over some esoteric piece of religious dogma, who want to kill Americans over some other imagined holy sin, because we’re “infidels” or “blasphemers”. How can we reason with such people? Where is the common humanity the naive pacifists and anti-war activists would like us to honor?

But war can be seen as America’s religion — most recently Pakistan, Iraq, Afghanistan, Somalia, Yemen, and many more in the past — all non-believers in Washington’s Church of Our Lady of Eternal Invasion, Sacred Bombing, and Immaculate Torture, all condemned to death for blasphemy, as each day the United States unleashes blessed robotic death machines called Predators flying over their lands to send “Hellfire” (sic) missiles screaming into wedding parties, funerals, homes, not knowing who the victims are, not caring who the victims are, thousands of them by now, as long as Washington can claim each time –- whether correctly or not — that amongst their number was a prominent blasphemer, call him Taliban, or al Qaeda, or insurgent, or militant. How can we reason with such people, the ones in the CIA who operate these drone bombers? What is the difference between them and Mumtaz Qadri? Qadri was smiling in satisfaction after carrying out his holy mission. The CIA man sits comfortably in a room in Nevada and plays his holy video game, then goes out to a satisfying dinner while his victims lay dying. Mumtaz Qadri believes passionately in something called Paradise. The CIA man believes passionately in something called American Exceptionalism.

As do the great majority of Americans. Our drone operator is not necessarily an “extremist”. Sam Smith, the publisher of the marvelously readable newsletter, the Progressive Review, recently wrote: “One of the greatest myths draped over this land is that the so-called wing nuts mainly come from the far right and left. And that there is, however, a wise and moderate establishment that will save us from their madness. In fact, the real wing nuts are to be found in the middle. … having captured both public office and major media, [they] spread disaster, death and decay with impunity. Take, for example, the 60,000 some American troops killed in pointless wars beginning with Vietnam. Now count the number of political assassinations, hate murders, terrorist acts and so forth. There is simply no comparison. Yet every war that we have fought in modern times has been the direct choice of the American establishment, those who pompously describe themselves as moderates, centrists, or bipartisan.” 3

Extending the comparison: In 2008 a young American named Sharif Mobley moved to Yemen to study Arabic and religion. American officials maintain that his purpose was actually to join a terror group. They “see Mobley as one of a growing cadre of native-born Americans who are drawn to violent jihad.” 4 Can one not say as well that the many young native-born Americans who voluntarily join the military to fight in one of America’s many foreign wars “are drawn to violent jihad”?

  • In 1963, the Kennedy administration was faced with a steadily disintegrating situation in Vietnam. At a turbulent cabinet meeting, Attorney General Robert Kennedy asked: If the situation is so dire, why not withdraw? Historian Arthur Schlesinger, present at the meeting, noted how “the question hovered for a moment, then died away.” It was “a hopelessly alien thought in a field of unexplored assumptions and entrenched convictions.”
  • I watched 21 Marines in full dress uniform with rifles, fire a 21-gun salute to the President. It was then that I realized how far America’s military had deteriorated. Every one of them missed the bastard.
  • Soviet expansion was self-defense, not imperialism like with the United States. The Soviets, in World War I and II, lost about 40 million people because the West had used Eastern Europe as a highway to invade Russia. It should not be surprising that after WW2 the Russians were determined to close down that highway.
  • In March 2010 Secretary of “Defense” Robert Gates complained that “the general [European] public and the political class” are so opposed to war they are an “impediment” to peace.
  • The major problem in establishing both the United States and Israel as nations was what to do with the indigenous people. Same solution. Kill ’em. Without legality. Without mercy.
  • From the film “The Battle of Algiers”:

Journalist: M. Ben M’Hidi, don’t you think it’s a bit cowardly to use women’s baskets and handbags to carry explosive devices that kill so many innocent people?

Ben M’Hidi: And doesn’t it seem to you even more cowardly to drop napalm bombs on defenseless villages, so that there are a thousand times more innocent victims? Of course, if we had your airplanes it would be a lot easier for us. Give us your bombers, and you can have our baskets.

  • … the seamless transition from the Cold War to a perpetual Global War on Terrorism
  • One of the reasons some countries allow US bases is because the leaders are worried about being overthrown in a coup and they think that the presence of the US military might discourage such action, or that if a coup breaks out the US can help to put it down. There’s also the large payments made to the government by the US and the prestige factor. Small countries can have inferiority complexes and, as absurd as it may seem to the likes of you and I, having an American base in the country can seem to be a feather in their cap; one of the same reasons they join NATO. Another reason for a base: the US can have intelligence information embarrassing to the country’s leader. This is known as blackmail.
  • George Washington referred to the new American republic as the “infant empire”
  • Foreign aid might be defined as a transfer of money from poor people in rich countries to rich people in poor countries.
  • “He [Obama] is trying to say: ‘Do not hate us … but we will continue to kill you’.” – Ayman al-Zawahri, Al Qaeda’s second-in-command
  • “Since both the US and France lost in Vietnam, then the ‘fight for our freedom’ must have been unsuccessful, and we must be under the occupation of the North Vietnamese Army. Next time you’re out on the street and you see a passing NVA patrol, please wave and tell them Tim says hello.” – Tim Moriarty
  • The American Museum of History, on the Mall in Washington, DC: One of the popular exhibitions in recent years was “The Price of Freedom: Americans at War”. This included a tribute to the “exceptional Americans [who] saved a million lives” in Vietnam, where they were “determined to stop communist expansion”. In Iraq, other true hearts “employed air strikes of unprecedented precision”.
  • “The United States became the target of terrorists on 9/11 not because of the country’s freedom and democracy, but because U.S. Middle East policy has had nothing to do with freedom and democracy.” – Stephen Zunes
  • The Wikileaks documents raise issues of national embarrassment, not national security.
  • Orange, Rose and Green Revolutions in other countries require coordinated US government intervention aimed at creating what has been called “genetically modified” grassroots movements.
  • Mikhail Gorbachev: “I feel betrayed by the West. The opportunity we seized on behalf of peace has been lost. The whole idea of a new world order has been completely abandoned.” (Interview in 2000.)
  • George Bernard Shaw used three concepts to describe the positions of individuals in Nazi Germany: intelligence, decency, and Naziism. He argued that if a person was intelligent, and a Nazi, he was not decent. If he was decent and a Nazi, he was not intelligent. And if he was decent and intelligent, he was not a Nazi. — (I suggest that the reader make any substitution for the word “Nazi” s/he deems appropriate.)
  • “The whole art of Conservative politics in the 20th century is being deployed to enable wealth to persuade poverty to use its political freedom to keep wealth in power.” – Aneurin Bevan, Labour Party (UK) minister, 1897-1960
  • “Which adversary has a navy justifying our expenditure of $90 billion for 30 Virginia-class submarines, and which enemy air force justifies our plans for about 340 F-22 fighter planes at a cost of $63 billion? This is pork and waste writ large, making the ‘Bridge to Nowhere’ look like child’s play.” – Letter in the Washington Post, 2009
  • So many foreign leaders keep silent in the face of US crimes, even when they’re the victim, that we’ve gotten used to that. So Hugo Chávez’s outbursts can seem weird and dangerous.
