The Osama bin Laden Myth

Paul Craig Roberts, Contributor
Activist Post

The interview below with Osama bin Laden was conducted by the Karachi, Pakistan, daily newspaper, Ummat and published on September 28, 2001, 17 days after the alleged, but unsubstantiated, al Qaeda attack of September 11, 2001, on the World Trade Center twin towers and Pentagon. The interview was sensational. The alleged “mastermind” of 9/11 said that he and al Qaeda had nothing to do with the 9/11 attack. The British Broadcasting Corporation’s World Monitoring Service had the interview translated into English and made public on September 29, 2001.

Osama bin Laden’s sensational denial was not reported by the US print and TV media. It was not investigated by the executive branch. No one in the US Congress called attention to bin Laden’s refusal of responsibility for the greatest humiliation ever inflicted on a superpower.

To check my memory of the lack of coverage, I googled “Osama bin Laden’s interview denying responsibility for 9/11.” Some Internet sites reproduced the interview, but the only mainstream news source that I found was a 1 minute YouTube video from CNN in which the anchor, after quoting an al Jazeera report of bin Laden’s denial, concludes that “we can all weigh that in the scale of credibility and come to our own conclusions.” In other words, bin Laden had already been demonized, and his denial was not credible.

The sensational news was unfit for US citizens and was withheld from them by the american “free press,” a press free to lie for the government but not to tell the truth.

Obviously, if bin Laden had outwitted not only the National Security Agency, the CIA, the Defense Intelligence Agency, and the FBI, but also all 16 US intelligence agencies, all intelligence agencies of Washington’s NATO puppet states, Israel’s Mossad, and in addition the National Security Council, NORAD, US air traffic control, and airport security four times on the same morning, it would be the greatest feat in world history, a movement building feat that would have made al Qaeda the most successful anti-imperialist organization in human history, an extraordinary victory over “the great satan” that would have brought millions of new recruits into al Qaeda’s ranks. Yet the alleged “mastermind” denied all responsibility.
I remember decades ago when a terrorist attack occurred in Europe, whether real or an Operation Gladio http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Gladio false flag attack, innumerable organizations would claim credit. Perhaps this was the CIA’s way of diverting attention from itself, but it illustrates that every intelligence service understands the value to an organization of claiming credit for a successful attack. Although bin Laden denied responsibility, in 2011 some al Qaeda leaders, realizing the prestige value of the 9/11 attack, claimed credit for the attack and criticized Iranian President Ahmadinejad for questioning the official US story.

Although only a few Americans are aware of the September 28, 2001 interview in which bin Laden states his non-involvement with the 9/11 attacks, many Americans have seen post-2001 videos in which a person alleged to be bin Laden takes credit for the attacks. There are two problems with these videos. Experts have examined them and found them to be fakes, and all of the videos appeared after bin Laden was reported by the Pakistan Observer, the Egyptian press, and Fox News to have died in mid-December, 2001, from lung disease. http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,41576,00.html See also http://www.legitgov.org/News-Bin-Ladens-Death-and-Funeral-December-2001

Bin Laden also suffered from kidney disease. According to a CBS news report on January 28, 2002, Osama bin Laden was hospitalized for dialysis treatment in the Pakistani military hospital in Rawalpindi on September 10, 2001, the day before 9/11. http://www.globalresearch.ca/where-was-osama-on-september-11-2001/3194

Obviously, a man suffering from terminal lung and kidney disease did not survive for another decade to be murdered by a US Navy SEAL team in Abbottabad. A Pakistani TV interview with the neighbor of the alleged “bin Laden compound” exposed the assassination hoax. This sensational interview also went unreported by america’s “free press.” I had the interview translated, and it is available here: http://www.globalresearch.ca/pakistan-tv-report-contradicts-us-claim-of-bin-laden-s-death/25915 See also http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-south-asia-13329078

Shortly after the alleged assassination 30 members of the SEAL unit died in a mysterious helicopter crash in Afghanistan, and now we learn that not a single one of the thousands of sailors on the aircraft carrier, the USS Carl Vinson, witnessed bin Laden’s alleged burial at sea from that ship. The press reports with a straight face that for unexplained reasons it was kept secret from the ship’s sailors. This is supposed to be the explanation of the sailors’ emails reporting to family and friends that they witnessed no burial at sea. Some speculate that the SEALs were bumped off before their questions to one another, “Were you on that raid?,” reached outside the unit. Apparently, it doesn’t strike the media or the public as strange that the US government captured and killed the terror mastermind without interrogating him and without keeping any evidence or presenting any witnesses to support the assassination claim.

Adolf Hitler claimed that communists burned down the Reichstag and that Polish troops had crossed the frontier and attacked Germany. With 9/11 americans experienced Washington’s version of these grand lies. An omniscient bin Laden dying from terminal illnesses in distant Afghanistan defeated the American National Security State and drove his attack through the walls of the Pentagon itself, requiring for our defense a “war on terror” that destroyed US civil liberties and financially ruined the country in order to prevent the triumph of a man who died of natural causes in December 2001.

On May 9, 2011, Professor Michel Chossudovsky republished the September 28, 2001, Osama bin Laden interview in Global Research.

Global Research Editor’s Note
We bring to the attention of our readers the following text of Osama bin Laden’s interview with Ummat, a Pakistani daily, published in Karachi on September 28, 2001. It was translated into English by the BBC World Monitoring Service and made public on September 29, 2001.

The authenticity of this interview, which is available in recognized electronic news archives, is confirmed.
Osama bin Laden categorically denies his involvement in the 9/11 attacks.

Bin Laden’s statements in this interview are markedly different from those made in the alleged Osama video tapes.

In this interview, Osama bin Laden exhibits an understanding of US foreign policy. He expresses his views regarding the loss of life on 9/11. He also makes statements as to who, in his opinion, might be the likely perpetrator of the September 11 attacks.

This is an important text which has not been brought to the attention of Western public opinion.

We have highlighted key sections of this interview. It is our hope that the text of this interview, published barely a week before the onset of the war on Afghanistan, will contribute to a better understanding of the history of Al Qaeda, the role of Osama bin Laden and the tragic events of September 11, 2001.

Full text of September 2001 Pakistani paper’s “exclusive” interview with Usamah Bin-Ladin

Ummat (in Urdu), Karachi, 28 September 2001, pp. 1 and 7. http://ummatpublication.com/2012/11/25/

Ummat’s introduction

Kabul: Prominent Arab mojahed holy warrior Usamah Bin-Ladin has said that he or his al-Qa’idah group has nothing to do with the 11 September suicidal attacks in Washington and New York. He said the US government should find the attackers within the country. In an exclusive interview with daily “Ummat”, he said these attacks could be the act of those who are part of the American system and are rebelling against it and working for some other system. Or, Usamah said, this could be the act of those who want to make the current century a century of conflict between Islam and Christianity. Or, the American Jews, who are opposed to President Bush ever since the Florida elections, might be the masterminds of this act. There is also a great possibility of the involvement of US intelligence agencies, which need billions of dollars worth of funds every year. He said there is a government within the government in the United States.

The secret agencies, he said, should be asked as to who are behind the attacks. Usamah said support for attack on Afghanistan was a matter of need for some Muslim countries and compulsion for others. However, he said, he was thankful to the courageous people of Pakistan who erected a bulwark before the wrong forces. He added that the Islamic world was attaching great expectations with Pakistan and, in time of need, “we will protect this bulwark by sacrificing of lives”.

Following is the interview in full detail:

Ummat: You have been accused of involvement in the attacks in New York and Washington. What do you want to say about this? If you are not involved, who might be?

Usamah [Osama bin Laden]: In the name of Allah, the most beneficent, the most merciful. Praise be to Allah, Who is the creator of the whole universe and Who made the earth as an abode for peace, for the whole mankind. Allah is the Sustainer, who sent Prophet Muhammad for our guidance. I am thankful to the Ummat Group of Publications, which gave me the opportunity to convey my viewpoint to the people, particularly the valiant and Momin true Muslim people of Pakistan who refused to believe in lie of the demon.

I have already said that I am not involved in the 11 September attacks in the United States. As a Muslim, I try my best to avoid telling a lie. I had no knowledge of these attacks, nor do I consider the killing of innocent women, children, and other humans as an appreciable act. Islam strictly forbids causing harm to innocent women, children, and other people.

Such a practice is forbidden ever in the course of a battle. It is the United States, which is perpetrating every maltreatment on women, children, and common people of other faiths, particularly the followers of Islam. All that is going on in Palestine for the last 11 months is sufficient to call the wrath of God upon the United States and Israel.

There is also a warning for those Muslim countries, which witnessed all these as a silent spectator. What had earlier been done to the innocent people of Iraq, Chechnya, and Bosnia?

Only one conclusion could be derived from the indifference of the United States and the West to these acts of terror and the patronage of the tyrants by these powers that America is an anti-Islamic power and it is patronizing the anti-Islamic forces. Its friendship with the Muslim countries is just a show, rather deceit. By enticing or intimidating these countries, the United States is forcing them to play a role of its choice. Put a glance all around and you will see that the slaves of the United States are either rulers or enemies of Muslims.

The US has no friends, nor does it want to keep any because the prerequisite of friendship is to come to the level of the friend or consider him at par with you. America does not want to see anyone equal to it. It expects slavery from others. Therefore, other countries are either its slaves or subordinates.

However, our case is different. We have pledged slavery to God Almighty alone and after this pledge there is no possibility to become the slave of someone else. If we do that, it will be disregardful to both our Sustainer and his fellow beings. Most of the world nations upholding their freedom are the religious ones, which are the enemies of United States, or the latter itself considers them as its enemies. Or the countries, which do not agree to become its slaves, such as China, Iran, Libya, Cuba, Syria, and the former Russia as received.

Whoever committed the act of 11 September are not the friends of the American people. I have already said that we are against the American system, not against its people, whereas in these attacks, the common American people have been killed.

According to my information, the death toll is much higher than what the US government has stated. But the Bush administration does not want the panic to spread. The United States should try to trace the perpetrators of these attacks within itself; the people who are a part of the US system, but are dissenting against it. Or those who are working for some other system; persons who want to make the present century as a century of conflict between Islam and Christianity so that their own civilization, nation, country, or ideology could survive. They can be any one, from Russia to Israel and from India to Serbia. In the US itself, there are dozens of well-organized and well-equipped groups, which are capable of causing a large-scale destruction. Then you cannot forget the American Jews, who are annoyed with President Bush ever since the elections in Florida and want to avenge him.

Then there are intelligence agencies in the US, which require billions of dollars worth of funds from the Congress and the government every year. This funding issue was not a big problem till the existence of the former Soviet Union but after that the budget of these agencies has been in danger.

They needed an enemy. So, they first started propaganda against Usamah and Taleban and then this incident happened. You see, the Bush administration approved a budget of 40bn dollars. Where will this huge amount go? It will be provided to the same agencies, which need huge funds and want to exert their importance.

Now they will spend the money for their expansion and for increasing their importance. I will give you an example. Drug smugglers from all over the world are in contact with the US secret agencies. These agencies do not want to eradicate narcotics cultivation and trafficking because their importance will be diminished. The people in the US Drug Enforcement Department are encouraging drug trade so that they could show performance and get millions of dollars worth of budget. General Noriega was made a drug baron by the CIA and, in need, he was made a scapegoat. In the same way, whether it is President Bush or any other US president, they cannot bring Israel to justice for its human rights abuses or to hold it accountable for such crimes. What is this? Is it not that there exists a government within the government in the United Sates? That secret government must be asked as to who made the attacks.

Ummat: A number of world countries have joined the call of the United States for launching an attack on Afghanistan. These also include a number of Muslim countries. Will Al-Qa’idah declare a jihad against these countries as well?

Usamah: I must say that my duty is just to awaken the Muslims; to tell them as to what is good for them and what is not. What does Islam says and what the enemies of Islam want?

Al-Qa’idah was set up to wage a jihad against infidelity, particularly to encounter the onslaught of the infidel countries against the Islamic states. Jihad is the sixth undeclared element of Islam. The first five being the basic holy words of Islam, prayers, fast, pilgrimage to Mecca, and giving alms Every anti-Islamic person is afraid of it. Al-Qa’idah wants to keep this element alive and active and make it part of the daily life of the Muslims. It wants to give it the status of worship. We are not against any Islamic country nor we consider a war against an Islamic country as jihad.

We are in favour of armed jihad only against those infidel countries, which are killing innocent Muslim men, women, and children just because they are Muslims. Supporting the US act is the need of some Muslim countries and the compulsion of others. However, they should think as to what will remain of their religious and moral position if they support the attack of the Christians and the Jews on a Muslim country like Afghanistan. The orders of Islamic shari’ah jurisprudence for such individuals, organizations, and countries are clear and all the scholars of the Muslim brotherhood are unanimous on them. We will do the same, which is being ordered by the Amir ol-Momenin the commander of the faithful Mola Omar and the Islamic scholars. The hearts of the people of Muslim countries are beating with the call of jihad. We are grateful to them.

Ummat: The losses caused in the attacks in New York and Washington have proved that giving an economic blow to the US is not too difficult. US experts admit that a few more such attacks can bring down the American economy. Why is al-Qa’idah not targeting their economic pillars?

Usamah: I have already said that we are not hostile to the United States. We are against the system, which makes other nations slaves of the United States, or forces them to mortgage their political and economic freedom. This system is totally in control of the American Jews, whose first priority is Israel, not the United States. It is simply that the American people are themselves the slaves of the Jews and are forced to live according to the principles and laws laid by them. So, the punishment should reach Israel. In fact, it is Israel, which is giving a blood bath to innocent Muslims and the US is not uttering a single word.

Ummat: Why is harm not caused to the enemies of Islam through other means, apart from the armed struggle? For instance, inciting the Muslims to boycott Western products, banks, shipping lines, and TV channels.

Usamah: The first thing is that Western products could only be boycotted when the Muslim fraternity is fully awakened and organized. Secondly, the Muslim companies should become self-sufficient in producing goods equal to the products of Western companies. Economic boycott of the West is not possible unless economic self-sufficiency is attained and substitute products are brought out. You see that wealth is scattered all across the Muslim world but not a single TV channel has been acquired which can preach Islamic injunctions according to modern requirements and attain an international influence. Muslim traders and philanthropists should make it a point that if the weapon of public opinion is to be used, it is to be kept in the hand. Today’s world is of public opinion and the fates of nations are determined through its pressure. Once the tools for building public opinion are obtained, everything that you asked for can be done.

Ummat: The entire propaganda about your struggle has so far been made by the Western media. But no information is being received from your sources about the network of Al-Qa’idah and its jihadi successes. Would you comment?

Usamah: In fact, the Western media is left with nothing else. It has no other theme to survive for a long time. Then we have many other things to do. The struggle for jihad and the successes are for the sake of Allah and not to annoy His bondsmen. Our silence is our real propaganda. Rejections, explanations, or corrigendum only waste your time and through them, the enemy wants you to engage in things which are not of use to you. These things are pulling you away from your cause.

The Western media is unleashing such a baseless propaganda, which make us surprise but it reflects on what is in their hearts and gradually they themselves become captive of this propaganda. They become afraid of it and begin to cause harm to themselves. Terror is the most dreaded weapon in modern age and the Western media is mercilessly using it against its own people.

It can add fear and helplessness in the psyche of the people of Europe and the United States. It means that what the enemies of the United States cannot do, its media is doing that. You can understand as to what will be the performance of the nation in a war, which suffers from fear and helplessness.

Ummat: What will the impact of the freeze of al-Qa’idah accounts by the US?

Usamah: God opens up ways for those who work for Him. Freezing of accounts will not make any difference for Al-Qa’idah or other jihad groups. With the grace of Allah, al-Qa’idah has more than three such alternative financial systems, which are all separate and totally independent from each other. This system is operating under the patronage of those who love jihad. What to say of the United States, even the combined world cannot budge these people from their path.

These people are not in hundreds but in thousands and millions. Al-Qa’idah comprises of such modern educated youths who are aware of the cracks inside the Western financial system as they are aware of the lines in their hands. These are the very flaws of the Western fiscal system, which are becoming a noose for it and this system could not recuperate in spite of the passage of so many days.

Ummat: Are there other safe areas other than Afghanistan, where you can continue jihad?

Usamah: There are areas in all parts of the world where strong jihadi forces are present, from Indonesia to Algeria, from Kabul to Chechnya, from Bosnia to Sudan, and from Burma to Kashmir. Then it is not the problem of my person. I am helpless fellowman of God, constantly in the fear of my accountability before God. It is not the question of Usamah but of Islam and, in Islam too, of jihad. Thanks to God, those waging a jihad can walk today with their heads raised. Jihad was still present when there was no Usamah and it will remain as such even when Usamah is no longer there. Allah opens up ways and creates loves in the hearts of people for those who walk on the path of Allah with their lives, property, and children. Believe it, through jihad, a man gets everything he desires. And the biggest desire of a Muslim is the after life. Martyrdom is the shortest way of attaining an eternal life.

Ummat: What do you say about the Pakistan government policy on Afghanistan attack?

Usamah: We are thankful to the Momin and valiant people of Pakistan who erected a blockade in front of the wrong forces and stood in the first file of battle. Pakistan is a great hope for the Islamic brotherhood. Its people are awakened, organized, and rich in the spirit of faith. They backed Afghanistan in its war against the Soviet Union and extended every help to the mojahedin and the Afghan people. Then these are very Pakistanis who are standing shoulder by shoulder with the Taleban. If such people emerge in just two countries, the domination of the West will diminish in a matter of days. Our hearts beat with Pakistan and, God forbid, if a difficult time comes we will protect it with our blood. Pakistan is sacred for us like a place of worship. We are the people of jihad and fighting for the defence of Pakistan is the best of all jihads to us. It does not matter for us as to who rules Pakistan. The important thing is that the spirit of jihad is alive and stronger in the hearts of the Pakistani people.

Read about Osama Bin Laden in Michel Chossudovsky’s international best-seller America’s “War on Terrorism” According to Chossudovsky, the “war on terrorism” is a complete fabrication based on the illusion that one man, Osama bin Laden, outwitted the $40 billion-a-year American intelligence apparatus. The “war on terrorism” is a war of conquest. Globalisation is the final march to the “New World Order”, dominated by Wall Street and the U.S. military-industrial complex.

Is Money Just Another Drug?

Anna Hunt, Contributor
Activist Post

http://www.wakingtimes.com/2012/11/19/is-money-just-another-drug/Marriam-Webster’s definition of addiction is: “compulsive need for and use of a habit-forming substance (as heroin, nicotine, or alcohol) characterized by tolerance and by well-defined physiological symptoms upon withdrawal; broadly: persistent compulsive use of a substance known by the user to be harmful.”

Just as drugs, cigarettes and alcohol, money, sex, shopping or any other activity can be habit-forming and lead to addiction. Dr. Leon F. Seltzer, a clinical psychologist and author of Paradoxical Strategies in Psychotherapy, elaborates in a recent blog in Psychology Today:

As addicts progress (or rather, regress) into their addiction, to derive sufficient gratification they must constantly seek more and more of their drug of choice. For ‘more’ is the keyword of addiction. It doesn’t matter whether they’re addicted to a substance, relationship, or activity—the ‘ante’ for getting enough of the object of their craving must continually be raised.

As drug addicts seek their next fix, a millionaire is likely to continuously seek the next million.

Drug addicts can be destructive, manipulative and, at times, dangerous. Can we say the same about individuals addicted to money? Dr. Seltzer thinks so:

But of all the things one might be addicted to, nothing tops the greed-laden pursuit of wealth in its audacity, manipulativeness, and gross insensitivity to the needs and feelings of others. Not to mention its extreme, short-sighted, irresponsible covetousness. Ask a multi-millionaire or billionaire so afflicted (if you can find one willing to talk to you!), and you’ll discover that their ‘mega-fortune quest’ really has no end point. They won’t be able to name the definitive ‘millionth’ or ‘billionth’ that, finally, will do it for them. They can’t because the means by which they reap their riches has itself become the end.

As a drug addict constantly seeks a “high”, money addicts seek their next deal or payout in order to satisfy the ego and get a boost of dopamine that, to them, comes with making a “killing.” Dr. Seltzer shares his insight about the reason behind this:
In general, their ‘money high’ has to do not just with feelings of fiscal elation but with a kind of self-inoculation. What perpetual wealth production inoculates them against are underlying, and barely recognized, feelings of distress—such as depression, anxiety, guilt or shame—which stem from a belief that deep, deep down they may not be good enough at all. So greater and greater financial success is required to help them sustain their cherished illusion that they really are superior—in economic terms, vastly superior—to others: a most convenient narcissistic ‘fix’ for whatever subterranean doubts they may yet harbor about themselves.

In our world, there are likely as many money addicts as there are drug addicts, although it is not yet illegal to crave more money. Quite the opposite. People that focus on growing their monetary fortune are often described as motivated, productive and successful. Yet, just as communities, friends and families suffer due to drug addictions, the world suffers at the hand of greed.

On an ethical level, the worst thing about their pursuits is that their mercenary, ego-driven achievements frequently do considerable damage to others and their prospects. Not always but typically those who might be called ‘greed addicts’ aren’t in the professions or creative Arts, but in business: entrepreneurs, investors, speculators, lenders, CEOs. And most often their successes contribute little or nothing to society.

Rather, their undertakings are cunningly contrived to transfer money out of the pockets of others and into their own. Exceedingly competitive and aggressive, they’ll take ruthless advantage of every opportunity to turn a profit—and not shy away from turning against others in the process.

Today, we are surrounded by greed that’s masked in industry, technology, banking, politics … the list goes on. That’s not to say that all wealthy people – or bankers, politicians and industry tycoons – are money addicts, but there are many that continually seek wealth with little regard to the planet or humanity. At what point do we say enough, and start treating money addicts like drug addicts … or better yet criminals?

USA: Dissolving the Union

“An indestructible Union, composed of indestructible states”?

By Roi Tov

The recently reelected President was laughing hard at his lame aide; the latter didn’t know where to hide the report he had just shown. It summarized the online secession petitions from all American states. Texas led it with over 100,000 thousand signatures; yet, this state has over 25 million inhabitants. Still laughing, the President said “Impossible, the United States Supreme Court ruled in 1869 regarding the secession of Texas that the US is ‘an indestructible Union, composed of indestructible states,'” he lectured among tears of laughter and summarized, “The petition didn’t achieve even 1% of the votes!” The aide left in shame.

Standing next to the President, but invisible to him, was Madame History, Satan’s whore. She also was laughing but for a different reason. Next to the President were reports on the recent election results, the military budget, and the country’s international trade trends. The President was a smart person, yet he was unable to integrate the data. It showed the USA couldn’t survive in its actual form for much longer.

Money, Money, Money

Ignoring the Madame, the President looked at the trading trends report; it wasn’t a disaster. The Congressional Research Service had published “U.S. International Trade: Trends and Forecasts” in September 2011. Oddly enough, it showed that the financial crisis the country had experienced in recent years had delayed the end. The crisis caused U.S. imports to drop faster than U.S. exports, diminishing the deficit. However, that had reversed once the crisis ended in August 2009. The bottom line was a bit worrying, in 2010, the country’s trade deficit in goods reached $645.9 billion on a balance of payments (BoP) basis, more than the $505.9 billion in 2009, but less than the $830.1 billion in 2008. The Congressional Budget Office estimated that, in 2012, the U.S. government will run a budget deficit of $1.1 trillion, or 7.3% of gross domestic product. There was no chance of solving the issue; yet, over the years countries had survived tougher situations. Compare Germany in the aftermath of WWII to its current condition as the European Union’s largest economy. The President took a deep breath; there was no reason for alarm. The Madame laughed harder.

Following a century of a dollar-based world economy, most Americans couldn’t understand the real picture anymore. There is a simple, but excellent, way of describing the problem of the statistics presented by the US Government. Bolivia is a producer of coffee. A pound of average coffee costs around $1 there. In the US, a coffee of similar quality costs around $4. Let’s say that both economies sell just one pound of coffee per year. Measuring the production of each economy in dollars, then the US economy could claim to be four times larger than the Bolivian one. However, measuring by weight, both economies would be the same size. The world’s economy is measured in US dollars and thus it is highly biased toward the American economy, presenting it as much larger than it is. In order to keep this illusion of economic size, a key goal of the US government is to keep its currency as the global monetary measurement unit. However, this won’t last. It makes no sense to calculate the trade between China and India in US dollars; the distortions in such a case are multiple. In the case of Thai products reaching Nepal via India, measuring the events in American dollars is ridiculous. The solution is to adopt a basket of carefully balanced measurement methods; this would probably happen in the next decades. Measuring under a more accurate system, the US would probably rate as the third largest economy in the world. Measuring the EU as one economic unit, then the US would be just fourth. In 2012, the largest Asian economies began trading among themselves in local currencies; the percentage of international trade calculated in dollars will drop sharply in subsequent years.

At first sight, this seems to be of no consequence. Let China buy Russian timber while paying in yuan and rubles. There is no way of blocking that. The point is that in the last century, the USA practically stopped producing goods. Items marked “made in the USA” have become a rarity. That is the reason for the large trade deficit abovementioned. Once the international producers of goods begin trading in foreign currencies, the US government loses its capability to manipulate the cost of the goods it purchases by monetary methods. This means that the price of the goods purchased by the USA will increase in the future; the deficit problem won’t be solved.

“Let’s Nuke Them!”

Calmly, the President dropped the financial reports and looked at the military papers. One of them caught his attention; it was the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute Yearbook 2012, which included a list of the world’s top 15 military spenders in 2011. It showed the USA at the top of the list. Not only that, the country spent 41% of the world’s expenses on the military, despite the country having less than 4.5% of the world’s population. The following country on the list, China, had just 8% of the total expense, despite its population being more than four times larger than the American one. This was wildly unbalanced. Could he cut the expense, lower the deficit, and become the Abraham Lincoln of this century?

It took him less than a second to dismiss the idea. The little of what was left of American industries was closely related to the military. Even an innocent-looking computer company like Hewlett-Packard was listed as the 20th largest defense contractor of the US government. The company is the creator of the Navy Marine Corps Intranet; a network second in size only to the Internet itself. Cutting the military expenses would cause irreversible damage to the domestic industry. Moreover, like China, the USA was thirsty for raw materials. China was a civilized country; it just kept peacefully buying Australian ores. In contrast, America gained access to cheap raw materials, especially oil, by war. Much of the military industry depended these days on rare earth minerals; recently, the USA had gained access in Afghanistan to one of the largest rare earth deposits on earth. The President couldn’t stop the attack on that country right now. It would hit his country’s military and corporations. Regardless of his wishes, in the coming years, the military will continue to grow, together with the deficit.

“Viva Mexico!”

At this point, the President began thinking badly of his aides. Both economy and military seemed to have joined forces against the USA; yet, they brought him non-operational papers. What was he supposed to do with them? At least he could rejoice in his recent victory. Birth certificate or not, Bibi’s support or not, he had beat them all! He looked briefly at their statistics, smiled smugly, and went out for a coffee. There was nothing to do in the Oval Office.

The Madame stayed behind, still laughing hard. Deeply indoctrinated by American bipartisan politics, the President had entirely missed the point. A paper by the Center for Immigration Studies claimed that in November 2012 Hispanics comprise 17.2% of the total U.S. population, 15% of adults, 11.2% of adult citizens, and 8.9% of actual voters. Moreover, projections show that their relative increase in the population and the number of their voters will continue growing. Yet, both Democrats and Republicans promoted negative policies towards them. Over 70% of them voted for the President because he was the lesser of two evils. Towards the end of 2012, the American army was little more than an army of Mexican mercenaries fighting for their citizenship. By the end of 2006, one of the supplements of The New Mexican, New Mexico’s leading English newspaper, was titled “Reconquista,” (“Reconquest” in Spanish), making allusion to the fact that over 30% of that state’s population is, in fact, Mexican. It won’t take long until this large segment of the population, at least in certain states, drops the bipartisan approach. The parties ignore their needs; once they finish their military and get citizenship, they realize they cannot advance in the anglo-oriented society. It had done them no good. The military and industrial analysis performed above shows the Federal Government will lack the funds to fix the situation, even if it wanted to do so. A social time-bomb is ticking.

The President had returned to his sumptuous seat. He disliked people preparing his coffee, they never got it right. He took a sip and relaxed. “Mr. President, Mr. President,” somebody was shouting while running in his direction. It was the annoying aide he had dismissed before. “Mr. President, the court resolution also added that it recognized the possibility of the divisibility ‘through revolution, or through consent of the States,'” the aide said. Obtuse to reality, the President took a second sip and smiled. Madame History’s shadow was cast on him.

New York, USA – The Cross of Bethlehem II —

Back in Bethlehem by Ro’i Tov

“Roi’ Tov  seeks to reveal life in Israel as a Christian Israel Defense Force (IDF) officer– from human rights violations to the use of an extensive network of underground agents. The Cross of Bethlehem II — Back in Bethlehem centers on his recognition as a refugee and his subsequent definition as political prisoner of Bolivia.

Tov grew up as an outsider in the tight-knit kibbutz along the Jordan Valley. In The Cross of Bethlehem II — Back in Bethlehem, Tov seeks to share how he was caught between staying steadfast in his Christian faith and remaining obedient to his country’s military. Caught in a military that challenges his spiritual and moral beliefs, Tov achieved the rank of captain while serving in the IDF.

When he left Israel and threatened to disclose the details of what he’s witnessed to the world, Tov became a refugee, traveling to Thailand, China, the United States and Bolivia, where he became first a refugee, and afterwards a political prisoner.”

“There are no other works about Israel from a Christian angle and by an IDF officer,” says Tov. “Israel is in the news daily, and I believe my book gives a refreshing view on the events occurring in Israel.”   The book reads independently of Part I, The Cross of Bethlehem – The Memoirs of a Refugee.”  – (Description of the book, which is available on Amazon.com.)

Government cannot serve two masters !

By  W J Anthony

A wise US Federal Government will not ignore the recent reaction of almost a million American citizens who think it is time for American Government to follow the tenets of the US Constitution.   The present petitioning for secession by an astounding number of almost a million Americans presents a response that was foreseen by the founders of this nation when the Declaration of Independence was written in 1776.  Various signers of the Declaration expressed their concern that the new Government might be endangered if the Constitution is not followed faithfully.

The words of the second paragraph of the Declaration of Independence explained

“We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.  That to secure these rights, Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed.  That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends, it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

The growing number of the many thousands of petitioners from all of the 50 states

have demonstrated their concern that the Federal Government has shown itself to have been engaged in “a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object, (which) evinces a design to reduce them (the People) under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.  Such has been the patient sufferance of these colonies (now states), and such is now the necessity which constrains them to alter their former Systems of Government.”

The many petitions, that the many thousands of People have now publicly published, charge that the Federal Government has usurped the powers of the States and abused the People of the States.  The violations of authority committed by the Federal Government have been clearly explained and documented by certain members of Congress and by renowned scholars of Government who believe the role of Government must serve the unalienable Rights of the People.

The Americans People have the responsibility to examine what they should do about the violations of the Constitution by the Federal Government.  The recent election is over, but the present exercise of the powers of the Federal Government, as an expressed intent of the President, is to personally use the war authority to permit him to kill people without trial and to use America’s war powers to dominate the People of other nations, without the consent of such People.  Eventual retaliation by other nations threatens the security of the People of these United States.

It is clear, that many thousands of People have exercised their right to petition the President to resolve the Constitutional grievances that have been presented to the Presidency.  The response by the President will determine if the American People can expect the President to comply with the tenets of the Constitution and end the violations that he has committed in his executive orders and his commitment of US Military and Intelligence organizations to illegal and unjust war operations in Libya, Syria, Afghanistan, Pakistan the Middle East and Africa.  Without a reply to the grievances of the People, the necessity to impeach him from office by trial is self-evident.

The Declaration of Independence makes the People of these United States responsible to decide if our Federal Government – the President and/or the Congress – has become destructive of the unalienable Rights of the People.  The Declaration states “That whenever any Form of Government becomes destructive of these ends (unalienable Rights), it is the Right of the People to alter or to abolish it and to institute new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.”

The time has come, when we the People have the very important obligation and responsibility to decide if the present form of Federal Government can be altered to become the Government that will truly conform to the tenets of the Constitution.

How will the People choose to alter the Federal Government; will they need a convention to do that?  Who will represent each of the States?

Once the changes have been identified by agreement of all the States, who will be responsible to put them into effect?

What will be required to present the changes to the People of each State and obtain their approval of the final enactment of the changes?

What changes will be required for the US Congress to design with legislation that fulfills the intent of the Constitution and the petitioners?

If it becomes the obligation of the People to abolish the present Federal Government, it then becomes the responsibility of the People to institute and establish new Government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to the People shall seem most likely to effect their Safety and Happiness.

There may be a need to provide an automatic lock that would prevent a future President or Congress from abusing the powers of Government by the un-Constitutional behavior of incumbent employees of Government.

Among the examples of officials who might assume an authority to violate the tenets of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution, two examples come to mind:

– A Presidency assumes war powers without the legitimate use of them.

– A Supreme Court judgment is destructive of the unalienable Rights of People.

The thousands of secession petitioners represent a legitimate concern about the Rights of People that are described in the second paragraph of The Declaration of Independence.

If the President ignores the petitions from thousands of People in the 50 States who want to alter the present Government of the United States, then un-Constitutional actions of the Federal Government can be expected to convince the People to abolish the entire Federal Government and construct a new Government that is in accord with the Constitution.

If Congress fails to move for impeachment of the President, will the oaths of the Military – sworn to protect the Constitution – authorize the Joint Chiefs of Staff of the Military to protect the Constitution and assume the authority to prosecute the President and save the nation as the United States?

America is at the crossroad of our future!

What is the truth … if We choose to secede ?

40 Outrageous Facts Most People Don’t Know

Once you go down the rabbit hole, you will discover things that most people don’t know. Here are 40 outrageous facts that most people are clueless about.

1. The IRS is not a U.S. Government Agency. It is an Agency of the IMF. (Diversified Metal Products v. IRS et al. CV-93-405E-EJE U.S.D.C.D.I., Public Law 94-564, Senate Report 94-1148 pg. 5967, Reorganization Plan No. 26, Public Law 102-391.)

2. The IMF is an Agency of the UN. (Blacks Law Dictionary 6th Ed. Pg. 816)

3. The U.S. Has not had a Treasury since 1921. (41 Stat. Ch.214 pg. 654)

4. The U.S. Treasury is now the IMF. (Presidential Documents Volume 29-No.4 pg. 113, 22 U.S.C. 285-288)

5. The United States does not have any employees because there is no longer a United States. No more reorganizations. After over 200 years of operating under bankruptcy its finally over.

6. The FCC, CIA, FBI, NASA and all of the other alphabet gangs were never part of the United States government. Even though the “US Government” held shares of stock in the various Agencies. (U.S. V. Strang , 254 US 491, Lewis v. US, 680 F.2d, 1239)

7. Social Security Numbers are issued by the UN through the IMF. The Application for a Social Security Number is the SS5 form. The Department of the Treasury (IMF) issues the SS5 not the Social Security Administration. The new SS5 forms do not state who or what publishes them, the earlier SS5 forms state that they are Department of the Treasury forms. You can get a copy of the SS5 you filled out by sending form SSA-L996 to the SS Administration. (20 CFR chapter 111, subpart B 42 2.103 (b) (2) (2) Read the cites above)

8. There are no Judicial courts in America and there has not been since 1789. Judges do not enforce Statutes and Codes. Executive Administrators enforce Statutes and Codes. (FRC v. GE 281 US 464, Keller v. PE 261 US 428, 1 Stat. 138-178)

14. New York City is defined in the Federal Regulations as the United Nations. Rudolph Gulliani stated on C-Span that “New York City was the capital of the World” and he was correct. (20 CFR chapter 111, subpart B 422.103 (b) (2) (2)

15. Social Security is not insurance or a contract, nor is there a Trust Fund. (Helvering v. Davis 301 US 619, Steward Co. V. Davis 301 US 548.)

16. Your Social Security check comes directly from the IMF which is an Agency of the UN. (Look at it if you receive one. It should have written on the top left United States Treasury.)

17. You own no property, slaves can’t own property. Read the Deed to the property that you think is yours. You are listed as a Tenant. (Senate Document 43, 73rd Congress 1st Session)

18. The most powerful court in America is not the United States Supreme Court but, the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania. (42 Pa.C.S.A. 502)

20. The King of England financially backed both sides of the Revolutionary war. (Treaty at Versailles July 16, 1782, Treaty of Peace 8 Stat 80)

…and as history repeats itself, Prescott Bush, father of George HW Bush and grandfather of George W. Bush, funded both sides of World War II.  The Bush family have been traitors to the American citizens for decades.

“Sarah, if the American people had ever known the truth about what we Bushes have done to this nation, we would be chased down in the streets and lynched.”

George Bush Senior speaking in an interview with Sarah McClendon in December 1992

21. You can not use the Constitution to defend yourself because you are not a party to it. (Padelford Fay & Co. v. The Mayor and Alderman of The City of Savannah 14 Georgia 438, 520)

22. America is a British Colony. (THE UNITED STATES IS A CORPORATION, NOT A LAND MASS AND IT EXISTED BEFORE THE REVOLUTIONARY WAR AND THE BRITISH TROOPS DID NOT LEAVE UNTIL 1796.) Respublica v. Sweers 1 Dallas 43, Treaty of Commerce 8 Stat 116, The Society for Propagating the Gospel, &c. V. New Haven 8 Wheat 464, Treaty of Peace 8 Stat 80, IRS Publication 6209, Articles of Association October 20, 1774.)

23. Britain is owned by the Vatican. (Treaty of 1213)

24. The Pope can abolish any law in the United States. (Elements of Ecclesiastical Law Vol.1 53-54)

25. A 1040 form is for tribute paid to Britain. (IRS Publication 6209)

32. The United States Government was not founded upon Christianity. (Treaty of Tripoli 8 Stat 154.)

33. It is not the duty of the police to protect you. Their job is to protect the Corporation and arrest code breakers. Sapp v. Tallahasee, 348 So. 2nd. 363, Reiff v. City of Philadelphia, 477 F.Supp. 1262, Lynch v. N.C. Dept of Justice 376 S.E. 2nd. 247.

34. Everything in the “United States” is For Sale: roads, bridges, schools, hospitals, water, prisons airports etc. I wonder who bought Klamath lake. Did anyone take the time to check? (Executive Order 12803)

35. We are Human capital. (Executive Order 13037)

36. The UN has financed the operations of the United States government for over 50 years and now owns every man, women and child in America. The UN also holds all of the Land in America in Fee Simple.

37. The good news is we don’t have to fulfill “our” fictitious obligations. You can discharge a fictitious obligation with another’s fictitious obligation.

38. The depression and World War II were a total farce. The United States and various other companies were making loans to others all over the World during the Depression. The building of Germanys infrastructure in the 1930’s including the Railroads was financed by the United States. That way those who call themselves “Kings,” “Prime Ministers,” and “Furor.”etc could sit back and play a game of chess using real people. Think of all of the Americans, Germans etc. who gave their lives thinking they were defending their Countries which didn’t even exist. The millions of innocent people who died for nothing. Isn’t it obvious why Switzerland is never involved in these fiascoes? That is where the “Bank of International Settlements”is located.Wars are manufactured to keep your eye off the ball. You have to have an enemy to keep the illusion of “Government” in place.

39. The “United States” did not declare Independence from Great Britian or King George.

40. The etymology of government means to control the mind. From Latinised Greek gubernatio “management, government”, from Ancient Greek κυβερνισμός, κυβέρνησις (kybernismos, kybernesis) “steering, pilotage, guiding”, from κυβερνάω (kybernao) “to steer, to drive, to guide, to act as a pilot” plus Latin mente “mind”.

You or I may think someone understands the whole truth about an issue that is of immense importance to the peace and life of all of humanity.

For years, nothing has been able to satisfy our hope to find the truth of that issue.   Then, an unexpected explanation appears, as the result of …

A Cup of Coffee with Roi Tov

Christopher Bollyn – An Interview with Roi Tov, Author of The Cross of Bethlehem

Americans are generally quite naïve about Israel and how the Zionist state really functions. The general ignorance about Israel is primarily due to the fact that most people are woefully misinformed about the Middle East having grown up consuming news and entertainment products provided by Hollywood and the Zionist-controlled media. This has resulted in a very significant part of the American population suffering from an extremely distorted point-of-view. Prior to 9/11 this may not have been a matter of great concern, but with the U.S. involved in at least two long-term wars in the Middle East, Americans can no longer afford to be blissfully ignorant about the Zionist state of Israel and its criminal network that are the root of the conflict in the region.

The Cross of Bethlehem is a remarkable book about Israel, written by an intelligent Israeli dissident who converted to Christianity and writes under the name Ro’i (Roy) Tov. Having had a career at Israel’s highest scientific institution and having served in top-secret military units provided Tov with unique insights. These experiences, however, made Tov a marked man when he tried to leave Israel and write a critical book about the Zionist state. When Tov refused to return to Israel, the Mossad targeted him for assassination.

I read The Cross of Bethlehem with great interest because it is a unique book that reveals the hidden truth about Israel. I conducted the following interview with the author at the end of November 2010. Both Roi Tov and I would suggest that you ask your public library to get a copy.

Christopher Bollyn: I would like to ask about your family’s migration to Israel. Was your family a Zionist family to start with? Did you agree with your family’s decision to move to Israel or would you have preferred to stay in Argentina?

Roi Tov: My grandparents migrated from Germany and Poland to South America early in the 20th Century. Some of their sons migrated to Israel and my parents decided to join them later on. The first time I heard of Zionism was in the meetings at the embassy before the trip; I was very unhappy mainly due to the certainty that I was being moved into a war zone. No kid can understand that; yet, I was not asked.

Bollyn: At what age did you decide that you were interested in the teachings of Jesus Christ? Did you see any conflict in what you were taught on the kibbutz and what Jesus Christ says? Were you able to talk openly about the teachings of Jesus with your friends or did you feel the need to keep your beliefs private? Did your beliefs in Jesus Christ make you a heretic in the eyes of secular Israelis who are not religiously bound by the teachings of the rabbis?

Roi Tov: I would like to begin with an anecdote. I currently live in Bolivia, a country that gave me political refuge. People here are notoriously unaware of time; once I was forced to wait three hours for a scheduled meeting and the other side didn’t even apologize for the delay. Yet, whenever I give a public speech, people want to know the exact second I converted to Christianity. It doesn’t work in such a way. It’s a process and it takes time. In The Cross of Bethlehem I describe some of the relevant early experiences: a bishop in Rome; a fisherman by the sea. There were others on which I cannot comment since my Teachers can still be identified.

Yet, there is an important point I emphasized in The Cross of Bethlehem. First, I met the negative sides of Judaism. Knowing evil, I began searching for goodness and Christ was there.

From early on I was aware of what my fate would be if found. I describe how, while at the university, I ventured a little joke (Since my Israeli ID number on my internal passport began with 111, I told a friend and informant of the Shin Bet that I had the Mark of the Trinity on me) and almost paid dearly for that. Eventually the fact was discovered and I paid dearly; I am a refugee now.

A point which is difficult for outsiders to understand is that even the lives of secular Jews in Israel are regulated by Pharisaic rabbis. Israel lacks a constitution or proper secular legislation.

Bollyn: The Cross of Bethlehem is a remarkable book because it is a critical view of Israel and Israeli society as seen by a very intelligent insider. Reading the book, one gets the impression that you have been pursued, watched, and targeted for assassination by the Mossad simply because you were planning to write a book about your life and experiences in Israel. Is this how you see it? If so, what does this say about the state of Israel and the notion of “freedom of speech” for Israelis?

Roi Tov: Thank you. As always, reality is complex. My persecution is not only due to The Cross of Bethlehem. In the book I describe how I was invited by Dow Chemical to their European headquarters and asked to transfer classified American missile technology developed by Dow to Israel. Back in Israel I contacted Uzi Eilam – back then Head of Mashmam (Israel Ministry of Defense’s Center for Control of Special Operations) – and asked to be kept out of it. The result was the Ministry of Defense discovered that I was a Christian who had had access to sensitive information for years. I was punished for that in a variety of ways until 2002 when unexpectedly I was sent to Bethlehem as part of the Defensive Shield Operation; my loyalty was being checked. This was my first serious test as a Christian (or to be more exact anything prior to this paled in comparison) and I passed it superbly. The Cross of Bethlehem is rich on the details, so I’ll just comment here that most IDF officers – my peers – would regard my actions as treasonous despite my not having violated any law. Adding insult to injury, I decided to publish the book.

Human rights are not properly defended in Israel because the country lacks a constitution. Sadly, ensuring human rights and the creation of a Palestinian state were conditions imposed by the UN on Israel’s sovereignty (when it was created). Since it failed in both, it has lost it. We are talking about an illegitimate state, which on 16 October 2009 was defined by the Human Rights Council of the UN as a terror organization (see Article 1690 of the Goldstone Report and others).

Bollyn: You write that Israel’s Mossad and Shin Bet keep tabs on Israelis in the same way that East German’s secret police (Stasi) or the KGB of the Soviet Union spied on their fellow citizens. Are the Israeli secret services at the top of the pecking order? Who are they really serving? Do they take orders from the Rothschilds, the banking family who played a leading role in organizing and financing the creation of the state of Israel?

Roi Tov: It’s not only my writings that say this. The Shin Bet itself has openly said that. Following Rabin’s assassination, the Shin Bet agitator Avishai Raviv appeared in an Israeli court. There we learned about “Haagaf Hayehudi” (The Jewish Department of the Shin Bet) and about Avishai pushing Yigal Amir into committing the hideous murder in the name of hatred, war, and war bankers. These are facts: Israel is a police state run by organizations keeping a network of “politruks.”

If walking in downtown Tel Aviv – a city I like very much in its design despite all my troubled history there – you’ll find that Rothschild Boulevard is one of the most beautiful spots in town. Yet, throwing all the blame on one small family would be quite naïve. The people appearing in The Cross of Bethlehem as the “Isaacsons” are very rich and influential – “Rahamim” was a personal friend of Yitzhak Rabin – yet very few people know them. The super-rich stay in the shadows for their own safety.

The design of general goals is defined by a small cabal, call it the Elders of Zion if you like, which includes people in Israel and outside it. Yet, if one of the cabal members changes his mind in a way perceived as dangerous by the others – see Rabin’s case – he’s dispensable. The implementation is left to many servant organizations, depending on their nature. Some of them are criminal in nature – like the Mossad – others are financial, commercial, political, scientific, and so on. Back to the beginning of this question, The Cross of Bethlehem exposes the methods used by these entities from the operational point of view, and as such is quite unique. Spycatcher and A CIA Diary are similar, but they are presented from the point-of-view of the criminal organization (MI5 and CIA are both clearly presented as violators of human rights).

Bollyn: Your analysis in The Cross of Bethlehem of the power structure of the Pharisees and how the Talmudic rabbis have stolen the Bible from the people is brilliant. You wrote:

Along with foreign doctrines brought from Babylon, the Pharisees adopted the old Hindu symbol for spiritual strength as their own. To ingratiate it in the eyes of the people they called it the Star of David, or in direct translation from Hebrew, “David’s Shield.” To justify their foreign beliefs, they claimed they were given orally to Moses in Sinai, a false claim which is not mentioned in the Bible. Without understanding this oral tradition, they asserted, you could not interpret the Bible correctly. Thus the Pharisees stole the Bible from the people. Jesus tried to explain that the correct interpretation is the one arising from faith and love, not the monstrous apparatus based on personal convenience created by the rabbis. He said people were equal many years before the false socialist doctrines made a joke of that idea.

Further on, you say that Christianity poses a singular threat to the power structure of the modern-day Pharisees:

I realized that Christianity poses a singular threat to Jewish leadership. Universally, religion deals with salvation or redemption of the human soul. Judaism speaks about an ethnic salvation, provided the group fulfils the 613 Mosaic Laws written in the Pentateuch, the Bible’s first five books. The laws’ fulfillment is enforced and monitored by a dedicated group of priests. In essence, the individual’s good-standing depends on the priests’ judgment. As a result this is a powerful control tool over the general population. Since most of the population is not instructed on law, and moral values – which could serve as general guidelines – are not taught to them, they can be easily manipulated as per the priests’ political goals at any given moment.

Jesus broke up this line of reasoning. He taught about personal redemption based on faith and love, of having direct access to God through our prayers and thus of being independent from priests. He preached for a better society, the Kingdom of God, a society based on justice and love. Such a society can exist within the framework of a modern state, but it would lead to the loss of power by the few men thriving under Pharisaic modeled societies.

The Israeli occupation of Palestine is the core problem in the Middle East and the Pharisaic state of Israel is the cause of that unresolved Gordian knot in the Holy Land. In these lines and pages you put your finger directly on the crux of the problem: Evil men, who claim to be the authority of Mosaic Law, have stolen the Bible from the Jewish people and control them by keeping them in a rabbinical “Auschwitz of the mind.”

While you have managed to escape from the grip of the Pharisees, there are millions of other Jews and Israelis still being held in their rabbinical prison. In your opinion, is Yeshua (the Aramaic/Hebrew name for Jesus, which means salvation) the only true way to liberate the Jewish people from the false dogma of the Pharisees that holds them captive?

Roi Tov: I try hard to keep distance from the fake teachings and bad culture of my people; yet, just once let me answer your question with another one: If beyond Yeshua there were another answer to their false dogma, don’t you think that in the more than 2700 years that have passed since Isaiah (“Ysha’ayahu” in Hebrew means roughly “God’s Salvation”) denounced polytheistic practices and idolatry, and specifically prophesized Yeshua and the New Covenant, they would have found it? Communism is not an answer. Zionism is not an answer. Kibbutzim are not an answer. The Israeli Defense Force (IDF) and their nuclear weapons are not an answer. Surveillance, assassination, and crippling of political opponents are not an answer. The only answer is Love and Faith; Jesus brought us that.

Bollyn: In The Cross of Bethlehem you wrote about how your Bible studies in the kibbutz school avoided the parts of Scripture that did not fit with the Israeli worldview: “Even in my quasi-Communist high school – which claimed to be secular – we skipped Chapter 53 of the Book of Isaiah, which contains the clearest and exact allusion to Jesus, His deeds, and the New Covenant in the Old Testament.”

Avoiding Scripture, testimony, and evidence that does not fit one’s point of view is a clear indication of intellectual dishonesty. The avoidance of inconvenient facts about Israel is a common practice in the Western media. While dissidents from countries like China and Burma are front-page news in the West and honored with Nobel prizes, dissidents from Israel, such as Mordechai Vanunu and you, are completely ignored. Why is that?

Your criticism of Israel’s discriminatory policies and lack of democratic values is fair and relevant, and certainly deserves to be heard. Mordechai Vanunu’s revelations about Israel’s nuclear weapons program are of immense historical importance, yet the Western media pretends that Israeli dissidents like you and Vanunu don’t even exist. What does this say about the pro-Israel bias of the Western media and the public’s cultivated ignorance of Zionism and Israeli reality?

Roi Tov: A few years ago I was awarded formal political asylum under the 1951 Geneva Convention on Refugees, following an unsuccessful assassination attempt on me by Israel. I had a place in a church and was preaching openly. I couldn’t see how I would publish The Cross of Bethlehem; yet I kept working on the manuscript. Now it is very readable, and considering that English is not my native language and that I never studied it properly, achieving this was quite a feat. I had no illusions of reaching the New York Times headlines, yet I was experiencing a freedom of speech unparallel to anything an Israeli citizen could possibly expect. Many people around me spoke of my charisma; Israel panicked.

In July 2009 I was cowardly and brutally attacked and nearly strangled to death by Israeli agents (in cooperation with locals). Almost everything was stolen (though a hidden copy of The Cross of Bethlehem manuscript survived) – including my travel documents. Showing their grandeur, the assailants inflicted irreversible damage to my throat. I am now able only to whisper for short periods of time and will probably soon lose my ability to speak at all.

Rabin spoke about the “indefatigable conspirator,” referring to Shimon Peres, and he spoke similarly about the Shin Bet and their tendency to “cook data.” He paid dearly for that, but he was absolutely right. The Zionist-Pharisaic cabal will stop at nothing in order to go on with their Business of War. Achieving this requires controlling the mainstream media; this is achieved in a variety of ways – my story illuminates some of these.

Bollyn: In your epilogue you concluded: “Maybe the criminal society that hunts me will cease to exist. Perhaps it will transform itself into a decent civilization. Either way, it will not continue to exist under its current laws. The record of history bears witness that criminal regimes do not remain in power forever.”

At this point what are the chances that Israel will transform itself into a decent civilization and what are the chances that the Zionist state will cease to exist? Which outcome seems more likely to you? Do you think there is a chance for a democratic state in Palestine in which Jews, Muslims, and Christians of all ethnic groups can live together?

Roi Tov: I accept the recent definition of the State of Israel as a terror-inflicting entity by the United Nations Human Rights Council. Moreover, the State of Israel exists in clear violation of the conditions imposed on its sovereignty by the UN, the body that brought that state into being. These violations cross frontiers. A clear case was the assassination attempt of Khaled Mashal, when Israel was forced to recognize its crime and supply the antidote. Benjamin Netanyahu signed the order to commit the crime and at that moment became the first well identified bio-terrorist.

Under such conditions we can ask only for the Repentance of Israel. I do not mean only the appearance of an Israeli representative at midnight in a barely illuminated alley who would ask forgiveness from the unelected representative of the millions of victims. That’s not good enough. Israel must fully indemnify for its crimes inside and outside its borders. Moreover, it must dismantle the terror organizations that enabled the commitment of these crimes, beginning with its main five intelligence agencies. Its agents must be brought to an international court; they bear personal responsibility for their crimes. It must stop seeing ethnic Jews across the world as the property of the Zionist-Pharisaic cabal and automatic informants of its agencies. It must begin treating all humans as equal creations of God.

Let me end with the following question: with all its arrogance of power and self-righteousness, can the State of Israel bring back to life even one of its victims?

Plagues of Israel

“Let my people go,” the man repeated before…

A man went unto Pharaoh, and said unto him, “Thus saith the Lord, Let my people go, that they may serve me.” He was repeating the words Moses had said so many years before while warning Pharaoh of the plagues. Yet, the situation was the inverse. Not for the people; they suffered now as harsh restrictions on their freedom as in Ancient Egypt. The difference was in the source of the plagues. In Biblical times, they had been sent by God; nowadays, the uncrowned pharaoh was their source. Most of his ingenious plagues would have been unthinkable in ancient times. In its obsession to control, evil knew no boundaries.

Methodically, the man presented the plagues’ shortlist.

“Let my people go,” the man repeated and added “because people have the right to eat cottage cheese without going broke.” This was an unconvincing beginning. Cottage was a staple food there; thus, he got pharaoh’s attention immediately. Encouraged, the man continued.

“Let my people go,” the man repeated and added “because people have the right to be governed by a fair, clear, and properly disclosed law system.” The Speaker of the Knesset had confirmed that the Israeli government acted according to secret protocols, never allowed by law. Years before, it had been made public that Israel routinely performed illegal medical experiments on its population without the latter being warned. Moreover, the Israeli government routinely violated the rule of law, by recognizing its official precognition capabilities. In contradiction to the Criminal Law, which formally defined the country’s legal system, these officials could act on their feeling that an individual was to commit a crime.

“Let my people go,” the man repeated and added “because people have the right to purchase a house without paying an enslaving mortgage for the rest of their lives.

“Let my people go,” the man repeated and added “because people deserve to live without being threatened with imminent wars. Governments ruling by fear, are unrighteous.”

“Let my people go,” the man repeated and added “because people have the right to choose their religion and spouses in complete freedom.”

“Let my people go,” the man repeated and added “because people deserve a system of justice which does not favor the rich.” Shortly before, Israel had deleted $360 million debt from one of its richest citizens, on the grounds of his control of the local energy market.

“Let my people go,” the man repeated and added “because people deserve the security of knowing that they are not surrounded by provocateurs of the secret police.” Years before, it had been proven in the Israeli court that the assassin of Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin had been provoked by a secret police agent. Inexplicably, the latter was set free by the court. Without stopping to breathe, the man continued:

“Let my people go,” the man repeated and added “because people deserve an honest leadership, one which is not busy accusing others of crimes it also commits. You accuse Nazi Germany of atrocities; yet, you defended Jewish Mr. Morel until his death in 2007. He had left Poland in 1994, when he became an Israeli citizen. That was the result of inquiries that began for his war crimes during WWII and right after it. His crimes were backed by over a hundred witnesses, including 58 former inmates; compare that with the very questionable evidences–possibly forgeries–and no witnesses in the case of John Demjanjuk. The main event refers to the period in which he was commander of the Zgoda camp in Poland, between March and November 1945. Between 1500 and 2000 inmates were tortured to death. It seems Morel took special joy in the perpetration of these murders. Justice cannot be relative.”

“Hey! These are not ten plagues. I declare your argument invalid for failing to meet Biblical standards,” Pharaoh summarized smugly. Raising his impressive voice, he called his Minister of Defense. He urgently needed a war to silence this fool.

Standing up to evil, the man continued. “All these are bad and terrible. Yet, pharaoh could repent, correct the situation and be forgiven. Yet, in your ungodly kingdom, one disturbing topic can’t be forgiven. Instead of sacrificing yourselves for the sake of your sons, you sacrifice your sons for the sake of your profits.” Pharaoh Netanyahu jumped to attention.

“I will mention only two examples, but innumerable cases exist,” the man said and continued “In 2006, Israel was defeated in Lebanon. The army commander back then was Dan Halutz. In the morning of the Israeli attack, he gave the order and then he found time to contact his broker and sell his stocks in the Tel Aviv Stock Exchange. Then, you, Pharaoh Netanyahu, transformed the affair of bringing your captive son—Gilad Shalit—into a business. You let him suffer for years after the negotiations had ended for political profit considerations. You are not better than General Halutz. A key event in your history is the Binding of Isaac (Genesis 22:1-24) in which Abraham is requested by God to sacrifice his son Isaac. After Abraham’s Faith is successfully tested, an angel of God stops the event before Isaac is sacrificed. Somehow, even this simple event is twisted by the Jews. Based on this, the sacrificing of the young is defined by you as a righteous event. It has become a role-model for Jews along history. Is this a true teaching? Even if you don’t know what’s going on in the Middle East, you can correctly judge a violent event there. Who is right: a nicely dressed general explaining his crimes on television or his victims? Jesus said: (John 10:11) I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep. The general didn’t die for his sheep: he sent others to die in order for him to survive. You are a bad shepherd, misinterpreting the Bible and abusing innocents for your own convenience and profit.” The man ended his speech when Netanyahu raised in his seat in clear protest.

Pharaoh was smiling; his smile deformed that old scar on his fat lip, creating a grotesque image. “Bring here the torturer,” he commanded. Appearing out of nowhere, guards seized the man. “Let my people go,” the man repeated before being strangled.
