the only question that matters: is it true?

Iran has signed the NPT. As a signatory to the NPT, Iran may rightfully, legally, use nuclear technology for peaceful energy purposes. Iran has submitted to and passed repeated IAEA inspections. The US intelligence community (NIE) does not consider Iran a nuclear threat. Israel refuses to sign the NPT. Israel has an estimated several hundred undeclared nuclear weapons. Russia and China have warned that an attack on Iran will have global consequences. That's the situation in a nutshell. Where to next, people? Where to?

Mantiq al-Tayr: Solomon Dwek and the Six Imams

Original here.

1. Rabbi Israel Dwek, the father of Solomon Dwek, has been in the news this week. It does appear that the main report found in PolitickerNJ.com and now all over the Internet is inaccurate. Nonetheless, Daddy Dwek is still very very upset. Who could blame him?

I mean, imagine if your son started doing business deals while still in his teens and built himself a mini empire that included:

a gambling boat, estates in Jersey and Florida, office buildings and plans to build high-rises just across the river from Manhattan.”

Gee, where did he get the money for all that? But I digress. Well, maybe not. Where’d he get all that money? I think I know. It is because he is an “observant” Jew. Red highlights, as usual, are mine.

“Dwek is the observant son of Rabbi Isaac Dwek, leader of the Syrian Jews who turned a summer getaway in Deal, N.J., into a wealthy sanctuary of Mediterranean-style mansions for their Brooklyn-based community.”

My goodness, I highlighted the whole thing, didn’t I?

I wonder how Daddy Dwek was able to do all this. Anyway, maybe Daddy was the source of funding for baby Dwek’s casinos. I hope we learn more about Daddy in the near future.

Clearly baby Dwek was probably doing lots of scamming all along and then in 2006 he deposited a $25 MILLION dollar check at a bank drive through.

Wow. I’d love to see the look on Mantiq’s bank teller’s face if I drove up in my obviously expensive car and dropped a check for 25 million bucks into the tube.

But I digress.

Anyway, it was a bad check, so Solomon did just what you’d expect from the son of a Rabbi who turned a summer getaway into a wealthy sanctuary of mansions for his fellow Jews, he attempted to withdraw 23 million dollars based on the bad check.

Oops.

And that’s how Solomon Dwek got a job working for the FBI.

Please note that we here at Mantiq al-Tayr do not endorse the “Solomon Dwek Method” (patent pending) for getting a government job. We recommend instead that you apply according to standard procedures, get a job interview, wait for several years while working for a temp agency in the daytime and singing in sleazy bars downtown at night, and then find out that your job was given to somebody well-connected in the community of Zion. But once again, I digress. Back to the Daddy Dwek blues.

So Daddy Dwek is terribly upset. I mean wouldn’t you be? Your son has been caught engaging in extremely serious bank-fraud and has thus “brought shame” upon your tight little religious community that expels members who marry from outside. I would expect him to be very upset – can’t we all agree?

Oh, but according to reports on the Internet, he doesn’t seem to be all that upset about his son being a lousy good for nothing crook. Nope.

Now the initial report said that Big Daddy was so upset that he was going to “Sit Shiva” – which we at Mantiq al-Tayr thought at first meant he was converting to Hinduism or something.

Shiva is just alright with me

But, according to the report on the event we learned what it means to “sit Shiva”.

“As explained to PolitickerNJ.com, Rabbi Dwek will sit Shiva for Solomon Dwek, observing the Jewish custom of mourning for an immediate family member who has died.”

But, sadly, it seems that Rabbi Isaac Dwek, who converted a summer getaway into mansions for his followers, ain’t gonna sit no Shiva on his son. Apparently this was a mistake according to the this report.

But, what the great Rabbi did do was to deliver:

” a very emotional sermon in which he strongly denounced the phenomenon of a Jew informing on other Jews, said that he is also a victim in this saga together with Klal Yisroel, and asked for prayers from the entire Jewish community for his terrible suffering.”

Yup. This is called the law of the Moser. The big D:

“took to his pulpit on Saturday to cite the Talmudic Law of Moser that prohibits a Jew from informing on another Jew to a non-Jew.”

But:

“Rabbi Dweck did not renounce his son, nor is he sitting shivah according to halachah.”

So your son is a total crook and you are upset not because of that, but because he assisted federal authorities in the country that allowed the Big D to turn a summer getaway into “a wealthy sanctuary of Mediterranean-style mansions for their Brooklyn-based community” in rooting out the unbelievable criminality going on all around Big D and his friends.

But you aren’t so upset that you’ll shiva on him, maybe because he did follow part of the law of the Moser and didn’t have to root out Big Daddy Dwek. Maybe that was part of his deal with the FBI. I hope the question comes up in court.

2. Of course, as this article informs us, the FBI only did this because the FBI is an anti-Semitic organization. That’s why the FBI works so closely with the ADL and has quit working with CAIR and why the FBI has, whether it wants to admit it or not, scared the absolute shit out of the Muslim community for years now. But the real problem at the FBI is anti-Semitism. Let’s look at the article closely. Here’s the opening salvo from an obvious nut case:

“Anti-Semitism was behind the highly publicized arrests last week of rabbis, including three from the Aleppo-Syrian Jewish community in New York and New Jersey, according to Yitzhak Kakun, editor-in-chief of the Shas weekly Yom Le’Yom

Of course Kakun admits he does not know the details of the case, but to arrest Jews is to be anti-semitic, because as we have seen with people like Aron Raskas and Yisreal Medad, there is one standard for Jews – they do whatever they want, and one standard for the rest of us, we do whatever they want.
Not to be outdone in sounding like an idiot, a Shas Member of Parliament named Nissim Ze’ev had this to say:

“The US police are trying to make it seem as though there is some kind of Jewish mafia.”

Well, guess what. There is.

“Ze’ev was referring to impression some media outlets had given by calling the group of rabbis involved the “Kosher Nostra,” a play on the words “Cosa Nostra.” (Wanna have some fun and learn something about the groceries you buy? Do a search on “Kosher Nostra” in Google and see what you find.)

The Shas party is one that wants to have its matza and eat it to. They are largely parasites living off the Israeli (and hence the US) government and while they can seem to be better than the other crazies in Israel – like Netanyahoo, they are in Netanyahoo’s coalition government. Nonetheless they like to play down their obvious nuttiness and distance themselves from people even crazier than they are. Therefore the following comment form Ze’ev.

“Saul Kassin [one of the suspects in the money-laundering scheme] is a man who contributes to many different causes, many of them very Zionistic,” said Ze’ev.

“He helps various charitable institutions in Israel and he has also helped fund IDF projects,” added Ze’ev. “We are not talking about a community that is particularly supportive of Shas. They are much more Zionist and nationalist.”

Ze’ev thinks he’s helping theses guys. What he has just done is provide the FBI with possible leads. Hey FBI dudes, what “charitable institutions” in Israel is Ze’ev talking about and what the hell is Kassin doing supporting IDF projects? Hello?

But the tuyuur here at Mantiq al-Tayr believe that Kakun wins the contest for sounding like a total fool.

“Regardless of the details of the case – I am not familiar with the precise charges and the evidence – you would never see the FBI and police behaving that way with Muslim sheikhs or Christian priests. It is so obvious that the whole thing is motivated by anti-Semitism.”

I’ll let the commentors on this blog deal with the Christian priests part. Let’s look at the “Muslim sheikh” thingy dingy for a minute.

The FBI loves to arrest Muslim leaders. Look here, and here for a couple of examples. We’ll give you another in in just a second.

But first let’s also point out that US government agencies love to arrest Muslims. I guess it’s a good way to get promoted. Who knows. Anybody remember the mass arrests in LA? Here’s a BBC report about hundreds being arrested. Imagine if they had been Jews? Here’s another report on the joys of being Muslim in the US.

But let’s go back to Mantiq al-Tayr’s favorite arrest of Muslims. We call it here “The Flight of the Six Imams.” Wikipedia, an entity obviously controlled by Islamofascists, racistly refers to the incident as “Sheikhs on a Plane.”

Six American Muslim Imams, one of them blind, were arrested back in November for 2006 and the FBI was involved in that one too.

What do you think they were arrested for?

A. Money Laundering

B. Selling organs of Jewish children living in Palestinian-occupied Israel.

C. Bank Fraud.

D. All of the above.

E. Praying in an airport

I’ll let you all guess the right answer. Oh, alright, for those of you who belong to the Shas party and are too stupid to figure it out, here’s a little info.

They had made the tactical mistake of doing their congregational sunset prayer near the airport gate before the plane took off, scaring the hell out of passengers who have been brought up by the Islamofascist media in these United States to be terrified of Muslims and especially of anything Arabic. Most reports say they were handcuffed and escorted off the plane. They were later released that same day. They sued everyone involved in the case so Congress passed a law, after the fact, to protect those who reported them to authorities for not being regular white people like Timothy Mcveigh.

Imagine what would have happened if a bunch of Orthodox Jewish Rabbis were arrested and handcuffed on an airplane and dragged off for interrogation because they weren’t acting like normal white people? Especially if it turns out that they, just like the six Imams, had done nothing wrong.

Here’s a picture of these terrifying Imams. [pic removed - just a bunch of normal looking middle aged guys walking through an airport, click to original to see it. - ed.]

Lions, Tigers and Imams oh my!

And here is what a judge has just now said about their case.

“The right not to be arrested in the absence of probable cause is clearly established and, based on the allegations … no reasonable officer could have believed that the arrest of the Plaintiffs was proper.”

In case you didn't know, Bin Laden worked for US till 9/11

Former FBI translator Sibel Edmonds dropped a bombshell on the Mike Malloy radio show, guest-hosted by Brad Friedman (audio, partial transcript).

In the interview, Sibel says that the US maintained 'intimate relations' with Bin Laden, and the Taliban, "all the way until that day of September 11."

These 'intimate relations' included using Bin Laden for 'operations' in Central Asia, including Xinjiang, China. These 'operations' involved using al Qaeda and the Taliban in the same manner "as we did during the Afghan and Soviet conflict," that is, fighting 'enemies' via proxies.

US to provide $1B to hire cops

(CNN) -- The federal government will give $1 billion in grants to law enforcement agencies in every state to pay for the hiring and rehiring of law enforcement officers, Vice President Joe Biden and Attorney General Eric Holder announced Tuesday.

The money comes from the stimulus bill -- the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 -- the officials said. The law is designed to help pull the U.S. out of its recession by providing and saving jobs, and helping those most affected by the downturn in the economy.

Beneficiaries can include state, local and tribal governments.

Judaism seeks collective not personal salvation

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 fulfills 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 individuals' 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 are not taught to them, they can be easily manipulated as per the priests' political goals at any given moment.

The tragedy of the Shabas Goy

Larry Franklin is apparently trying to get a Jewish publishing house to issue his memoirs, so he is Jewing up his story to the max (the comments to both links, even in the Washington Times (!), reflect the growing fury at the Jewish running of the United States). Not only is the FBI filled to the brim with anti-Semites (just think of the blurbs by Cynthia Ozick, David Mamet, and Abe Foxman!), but he was actually working for the FBI trying to infiltrate improper Zionist influence in the American government - I'm not sure how the treason of trying to put American Jews in jail will go over with the Jewish publishers - until the FBI turned the tables on him and charged him. The story makes no sense. If he was working for the FBI he had a perfect defense to the government's charges, so why then did Franklin take a plea bargain with a tremendously long sentence? Franklin seems to be mangling the time-line: he started to try to help the FBI in order to mitigate his sentence only after they caught him.

Commentary: Flipping Enemies

WASHINGTON, July 30 (UPI) -- Geopolitical trendies ran a new one up the international flagpole to see if anyone saluted. It claimed to be the magic formula on "How to Win in Afghanistan."

"Flipping the Taliban" is the new recipe for success in Afghanistan. In the July/August 2009 issue of Foreign Affairs, Fotini Christia, a member of the Security Studies Program at MIT, and Michael Semple, an Irish official with the EU delegation who was expelled from Afghanistan last December for his involvement in a Taliban reconciliation effort, put forward their "flipping" the enemy thesis that makes the exercise a tad harder than flipping hamburgers.

The Horror: war vets can't turn it off as they search and destroy stateside

Excerpt:

A genuinely damaged, even psychopathic layer, taught by the military to kill and abuse, has been let loose in American society, with untold consequences. If the Persian Gulf War, a skirmish by comparison, helped produce mass murderer Timothy McVeigh, what kind of havoc will the current unending wars create? All the official lies about the "wonderful" work "our men and women in uniform" are doing, and doing in the name of "the American people," can't conceal the ugly and quite horrifying truth.

One social worker in Colorado Springs, Sister Kateri Koverman, who has counseled people in war zones for almost four decades, comments, "We have a public disaster here, and no one really knows how to deal with it."

Recession shadowing Chicago bid for Olympic games

Illuminati-ville. - Ed.

Excerpt:

Earlier events that placed Chicago on an international stage, Ms. Healey said, also came during periods of financial gloom: a World’s Fair in 1893 and again in 1933.

To hear Ms. Healey and other bid leaders tell it, there is no downside. If the International Olympics Committee were to choose Chicago over Madrid, Rio de Janeiro and Tokyo on Oct. 2, advocates predict the Games would not only break even but would also make money (as have, they say, earlier Olympics in the United States), generate more than $22 billion in indirect economic impact on the city and create $1 billion in new tax revenue. Many of the sites needed for the events would not require construction because they already exist.

Organizers say private financial support is mounting, with $60 million raised so far for the bid, and no city dollars are expected to be needed for either the bid or the Games.

On that last point, however, residents of Chicago seem skeptical. They have heard promises before.

The "impossible" health care solution: go back to cash

>The expansion of health insurance and government entitlements created "free money" and thus the explosion of healthcare costs. The solution is simple and "impossible": we all pay cash.

Here's why healthcare (a.k.a. sick-care) costs cannot be reduced; the entire system is based on vast pools of "free money." The corporate-America or union/government employee who goes to the doctor pays a few dollars for a visit and drugs; the "real cost" is of no concern. Ditto the "real costs" charged to Medicare and Medicaid.

The link between the "consumer" of healthcare and the provider has been broken for decades. There is no "free market" in healthcare--there isn't any market at all. We live in a Kafka-esque nightmare system in which "some are more equal than others" and hundreds of thousands of dollars are lavished on worthless tests, procedures and medications for two reasons:

1. because there's "free money" to pay the bills

2. so-called "defensive medicine" in which worthless tests are administered to stave off random (sometimes valid, sometimes nuisance) malpractice lawsuits.

There is a solution so simple and so radical that it is "impossible" (and of course you're reading it here): shut down insurance and all government entitlements, and return to the "golden era" of the 1950s when everyone paid cash for healthcare.

Your right to self-shield, information from a questionable source

The NSF is an NGO, which are notoriously popular vehicles for intelligence operatives in foreign countries and here too. So please take this information from where it comes. As with all psyops, the good information is mixed together with the bad, and you have to sort it through yourself. It is worthwhile, in my opinion, to have the supplies on hand necessary to stay in your house for weeks on end should that be necessary. But as for isolating yourself on account of a non-deadly flu bug? Um not so much. And the sign on the door? Also not sure about that. Just be careful and Think Your Own Thoughts. - Ed.

The purpose of this White Paper is to set out the legal precedents and practical implementation of voluntary self-shielding and self-quarantine. At the end of this article are quotations from various legal sources that tend to support the conclusion that voluntary, at-home self-shielding and (if necessary) self-quarantine are viable, practical and easily available alternatives to mandated vaccination, isolation or incarceration in relocation centers during a declared “pandemic emergency.” Since the process is entirely voluntary, it preserves the rights and freedoms of the people and families choosing to self-shield.

They're getting ready for something big this fall

Now more than ever this is looking to be the case.

It's obvious they're getting the public ready for mandatory swine flu vaccinations. They're not publicly calling for mandatory vaccinations yet, but clearly it's heading in that direction. Anyone who has seen the World Health Organization (WHO) memos knows that their plans are. The only way for them to pull this off is to declare emergency powers under martial law. I believe this will happen in the fall.

Israeli tanks, bulldozers roll into Gaza

Here have some cement. We're so generous and peace loving. Oh wait a second our tank will be right in to destroy whatever you build. - Ed.

The Israeli army has launched another cross border attack on the Gaza Strip, opening fire on villagers' homes south of the impoverished sliver.

Israeli tanks and bulldozers rolled hundreds of meters deep into the strip on Wednesday and flattened cultivated fields in Al Qararra town in southern Gaza.

According to witnesses several Palestinian homes were damaged in the attack but there were no reports of casualties. Four tanks and two bulldozers conducted the attack.

Palestinian sources say the invading Israeli troops were forced to retreat after they faced resistance from Palestinian fighters.

Gaza to get cement for first time since war

PR / Hasbara stunt by Israel - Ed.

GAZA - Israel will allow a one-time transfer of cement into Gaza for the first time since its war in the enclave and amid a new US peace push in the region, officials said on Wednesday.

Hardline Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Defence Minister Ehud Barak okayed the transfer of more than 310 tonnes of cement for rebuilding a flour mill, a sewage treatment facility and the British cemetery, one defence official said.

The one-off consignment will also include some steel and is expected to be transferred "in the coming weeks," he said.

NJ man arrested in probe found dead

A veteran New Jersey political consultant who was among dozens arrested in a huge corruption sweep last week was found dead in his Jersey City apartment on Tuesday, the same day that one of three mayors charged in the case resigned.

The circumstances surrounding the death of the consultant, Jack M. Shaw, are “suspicious,” said Edward J. DeFazio, the Hudson County prosecutor. He said it did not appear to be a homicide. “It could be natural, it could be accidental, it could be suicide,” he said, refusing to elaborate. An autopsy is set for Wednesday.

boo hoo hoo, they don't like our great idea

CFR associate: plan for world government stalled

Jurriaan Maessen

The choir warming to the idea of a one world government was joined recently by CFR-member and presidential professor of political science, Thomas G. Weiss. In his presidential address at the 50th convention of the International Studies Association in mid February of this year, Weiss argued for world government and a world currency out of the current economic crisis. At the same time he discerns an increasing resistance on the part of the people to accept such a world government in any way, shape, or form.

In his speech titled “What Happened to the Idea of World Government”, Weiss outright rejects the idea of national sovereignty in favour of “overarching central authority” to set things straight. He then goes on to lament recent developments in the United States, where it has become less fashionable to speak of world government: a clear sign that the people are gradually beginning to develop an allergy for the new world order and its most vehement proponents:

“Once a staple of informed debate on international affairs- and as hard as it is to believe, especially in the United States- “world government” is a term no longer used in polite company, unless as my Graduate Center colleague Rob Jenkins states, “it is to dismiss those who advocate the idea as hopelessly na├»ve, or to demonize those suspected of secretly plotting the creation of a global leviathan.”

Social Intelligence

Excerpt:

Unchecked, repressed, and overwhelming guilt may be the greatest impediment to genuine relating. Guilt inhibits the flow of spontaneity that actual relating demands. Guilt binds consciousness to the past while corrupting our capacity to be fully present with another person. Guilt distorts our personality with excessive self-consciousness that embarrasses us and leaves us feeling socially inept. Left unattended, guilt doesn't go away but turns into resentment and finally, a toxic emotional sludge. Guilt sucks. Guilt sucks the life force right out of your body.

As long as we suffer from a guilty conscience, we cannot truly relate openly and directly. Before social intelligence can be increased, guilt must be dealt with. If we think we don't feel or have any guilt we may have effectively repressed it and if so, an unconscious guilt complex may be pulling our strings. Some of us manage to escape guilt through the toxic magick of the psychopath. Others temporarily alleviate their guilt by pretending it's not there. What is guilt? Guilt expresses a negative emotional reaction to betraying someone's moral or ethical code that we have been conditioned to care about.

"recession's over, recovery underway" What's missing in action?

The mainstream media is gleefully hyping "the recession is over, the recovery is underway." Nice, except for everything that's missing in action.

"The recession is over, the recovery is underway." Exactly what will be driving this fabulous "recovery"? Let's check in on the usual forces which have powered previous recoveries:

1. Autos/vehicles: missing in action (MIA). Annual sales have plummeted from 17 million vehicles a year to about 9 million a year, and the U.S. probably contains about 30 million surplus/lightly used vehicles ( a number snagged from economist David Rosenberg's latest report). Modern vehicles can easily last 15-20 year, so the "need" to replace vehicles is rather low. Actual "necessary" replacement might require as few as 5 million vehicles a year.

With unemployment at 16%, assets down by $10 trillion and the FIRE economy (finance, real estate and insurance) in disarray, where does anyone think the consumer borrowing firepower will come from to finance an extra 8 million vehicles a year?

2. Housing/real estate: missing in action (MIA). Let's see: new home sales down from 1.4 million a year to 350,000 a year and the headlines are screaming "recovery in housing" even as house prices are down 50% from the bubble peak and still declining. The Case-Shiller index just came in at a year-over-year decline of 17% and the market is cheering because it's a few tenths of a percent "better than expected."

The model is the famous Church and Pike committees of the 1970s, which exposed widespread CIA lawlessness; created the modern legal and congressional oversight structures for intelligence; and cleaved the history of the CIA into before- and after- periods.

Renegade MI5 officer proves very useful for controlled media to throw various ideas and people under the bus

Excerpts:

Sat on a floor cushion in a fug of joss stick smoke in the sitting room of Hackhurst Farm, a 400-year-old rural idyll at the end of a country lane which he has occupied since last month with a group of eco-campaigners, the 43-year-old former spy outlined his journey from an atheist in charge of MI5's Libya desk to the stiletto-heeled messianic proclaimer of a crusade to dismantle a "Zionist empire", whose control is apparently exerted over the planet by nefarious means from vaccines to mortgages. [oh ha ha ha how ridiculous! - ed.]

Far from being unwell, Mr Shayler insisted he was merely following the same instincts that persuaded him to blow the whistle on the alleged misdeeds of MI5 and MI6 in 1997 – and illegally print extracts from Spycatcher while a student – by bringing into the open unpalatable "facts" about the state of humanity.

...He is also complimentary about David Icke, the former BBC sports presenter who has gone before him in revealing himself as Jesus's reincarnation before suggesting the world is controlled by shape-shifting lizards. Mr Shayler said: "David has done some enormously important work. I see him as the John the Baptist to my Christ. I have spoken to him on the phone and suggested we meet."

...For his part, the former spy and self-confessed user of cannabis and magic mushrooms is unapologetic in his certainty that he is now the subject of a higher calling: "I don't give a fuck what other people think of me. A bloke in a frock is whole lot less offensive than blowing up innocent people in Iraq and Afghanistan." [that is true - ed.]

Chief psyops channel: military planning for "possible" H1N1 outbreak. In the fall. Possibly.

From Barbara Starr

WASHINGTON (CNN) — The U.S. military wants to establish regional teams of military personel to assist civilian authorities in the event of a significant outbreak of the H1N1 virus — the swine flu — this fall, according to Defense Department officials.

The proposal is awaiting final approval from Defense Secretary Robert Gates.

The officials would not be identified because the proposal from the U.S. Northern Command’s Gen. Victor Renuart has not been approved by the secretary.

Flu Conspiracy crossing over from wacky to mainstream on account of all the distressing FACTS


Do drug companies secretly favor a world flu pandemic? [or not so secretly???? - ed.]


By Dr. Mercola

In early May, Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius admitted the swine flu virus was not quite the fearsome plague it was widely reported to be in April when the novel influenza A strain (official name H1N1) first emerged in the U.S.

On May 6, Sebelius said:

“We are cautiously optimistic that what we are seeing right now is presenting itself as a much milder virus than the initial cases ... in Mexico.”[1]

Ms. Sebelius’ remark was likely prompted by the fact the swine flu virus is showing itself to have mild symptoms, quick recovery time, and low incidence of death among the vast majority of H1N1 patients throughout the world (with the single exception of Mexico).

A little over a month later, on June 11, the World Health Organization (WHO) raised its swine flu pandemic alert from a 5 to a 6. [2] Phase 6 is the highest level alert, and reflects the speed with which a virus is spreading – not its severity.

WHO actually considers the severity of the H1N1 virus to be moderate, generally defined as an illness requiring neither hospitalization nor even medical care.[3]

This organ stealing angle of the New Jersey corruption case is beyond the pale.

Now that all these other victims start coming out of the woodwork, I guess we have to notice, hmm? It's not *just* the Palestinians anymore.

Here's more from Joe Cannon, in which he links the practice directly into the Israeli government.

The American media's coverage has led the public to believe that Rosenbaum's kidney trafficking was purely a matter of private enrichment. But a former Israeli officer has said under oath that the Israeli government runs this ring, and that the master of the ring -- "Ilan" is obviously Ilan Peri -- functions as an agent of that government.
And how could that be? Very simple. It's called Jewish Racism. Let Brother Nathanael explain it to you because he was born and raised Jewish.

Israel's menacing rhetoric toward Lebanon and threats to Iran are intrinsically linked

The world should not make the mistake of believing that Israel’s menacing rhetoric toward Lebanon is a separate issue from Israel’s threatening attitude toward Iran.

Israel has made it quite clear that in any future conflict with Hezbollah, Israel will regard the Lebanese government as being responsible for Hezbollah’s actions. This means that any attack Israel launches against Hezbollah will now include action against all of Lebanon and Lebanon’s armed forces.

Since Israel now regards Hezbollah as an integral part of the Lebanese government, any future war launched by Israel to destroy Hezbollah will have to involve a full-on invasion – which, of course, is what the Israelis have always wanted to do and have attempted a number of times before. But next time it will different. Next time the Israelis invade Lebanon it will be with overwhelming force and the resulting occupation of southern Lebanon up to the Litani River will likely be permanent.

Israeli attack on Iran in early August?

There is an overwhelming body of evidence that after destabilizing Iran for the past few weeks, Israeli government is going to directly attack Iran from airstrips in Egypt with flights over Saudi Arabia and via nuclear powered submarines that are capable of carrying nuclear tipped missiles. In anticipation of an imminent attack, Turkey and the Gulf states have placed their armed forces on alert.

British newspapers are reporting increased Israeli activity in the region. The chatter is growing. First there was a report in the Times. Now the London Daily News has investigated Israeli submarine movements. These revelations come on the heel of the Biden statement that seemed to have given a nod to Israel. President Obama later denied that the US had given a green signal to Israel to attack Iran. Can Iran retaliate against an Israeli attack?

The head of Mossad, Israel’s overseas intelligence service, has assured Benjamin Netanyahu, its prime minister, that Saudi Arabia would turn a blind eye to Israeli jets flying over the kingdom during any future raid on Iran’s nuclear sites.

Earlier this year Meir Dagan, Mossad’s director since 2002, held secret talks with Saudi officials to discuss the possibility.

IDF vets train US jews to protect themselves

by Maayana Miskin

(IsraelNN.com) Starting in late July, a group of Israeli combat veterans will be holding a training camp in New York to teach advanced self-defense techniques to Jews in U.S. communities. An increasing number of American Jews have expressed interest in the program following a wave of anti-Semitic incidents worldwide over the past year, organizers report.

The group calls itself Kitat Konenut New York – a reference to the “rapid response teams” active throughout Judea and Samaria. Rapid response teams in Israel, comprised of local civilians who are IDF veterans, have often been the first on the scene of terrorist attacks and other emergencies, and have prevented casualties.

It was founded in 2006 in response to a shooting attack at a Jewish center in Seattle, Washington. One woman was murdered in the attack, and several others were wounded.

The group is apolitical, and does not take part in demonstrations. “Our agenda is to protect Jews,” says group member Yonatan Stern.

However, the group does have a firmly held political belief. “We believe in the constitutional right to bear arms,” Stern says. Kitat Konenut encourages all American Jews to learn how to use weapons, and to purchase their own firearms for self-defense. if

Trainees learn the IDF's unique martial arts style, known as Krav Maga, and learn to identify suspicious objects and dismantle improvised explosives. They are also trained to use a variety of both non-lethal and lethal weapons, including assault rifles and sniper rifles. Trainers review techniques to deal with situations ranging from knife fights to urban warfare.

Training this year will begin on July 31 and conclude on August 9.

Martial law and the militarization of public health: the worldwide h1n1 flu vaccination program

by Michael Chossudovsky

Excerpt:

The underlying political intent is to use the WHO level six pandemic to divert public attention from an impending and far-reaching social crisis, which is largely the consequence of a deep-seated global economic depression.

On the basis of ... expert assessments of the evidence, the scientific criteria for an influenza pandemic have been met. I have therefore decided to raise the level of influenza pandemic alert from Phase 5 to Phase 6. The world is now at the start of the 2009 influenza pandemic. ... Calling a pandemic is also a signal to the international community. This is a time where the world's countries, rich or poor, big or small, must come together in the name of global solidarity to make sure that no countries because of poor resources, no countries' people should be left behind without help. ...The World Health Organization has been in contact with donor communities, development partners, resource poor countries, and also drug companies as well as vaccine companies. Margaret Chan, Director-General, World Health Organization (WHO), Press Briefing, 11 June 2009

How best to tame the Nation's citizens, to rein in people's resentment in the face of mounting unemployment?

Create a Worldwide pandemic, instil an atmosphere of anxiety and intimidation, which demobilizes meaningful and organized public action against the programmed enrichment of a social minority. The flu pandemic is used to foreclose organized resistance against the government's economic policies in support of the financial elites. It provides both a pretext and a justification to adopt emergency procedures. Under the existing legislation in the US, Martial Law, implying the suspension of constitutional government, could be invoked in the case of "A Catastrophic Emergency" including a the H1N1 swine flu pandemic.

Monday, July 27, 2009

A huge simulation coordinated by the Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) and the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) has begun today with no mainstream media coverage at all.

The security exercise known as National Level Exercise 09 (NLE 09) will last for five days and will involve foreign security officials working in conjunction with the US military, as well as Federal, State, Local Tribal and Private Sector representatives.

According to a factsheet in the recesses of the FEMA website, the agency will host National Level Exercise 2009 (NLE 09) on July 27 through July 31, 2009:

Private citizen petitions court against state's experimental nukes

Comment by Peter Chamberlain:

If we all followed this brave little woman's example and used the courts to stop all of this B.S. that the government is ramming down our throats, we would tie-up the courts and probably send an undeniable signal to our corrupt leaders that, "ENOUGH IS ENOUGH!!" We truly are "mad as hell and we're not going to take it anymore!!!"


Dear Anti-Nuke Friends and Allies,
Today was a first for me, as I filed in the Baltimore City Circuit Court as a private citizen for the first time in my 50 years. You see, I have a real beef against a pro-nuke decision made by an employee of the State of Maryland.
At court, I petitioned a judge to review the decision made by the Maryland Public Service Commission Hearing Examiner, who approved an application to construct an experimental, BOMB-Plutonium-fueled, double-sized reactor to sit on - and dump into - our already dead and dying Chesapeake Bay.

This is going to pose a bad PR problem for "The Jewish People"

Christopher Bollyn
Busted: The Orthodox Criminal Network

The FBI's mass arrest on July 23 of Orthodox rabbis, their partners-in-crime, and the venal and corrupt politicians who accepted bribes from a Jewish gangster-turned-witness provides essential insight into the extensive Othodox Jewish criminal network that dominates Israel, New York, New Jersey, and to a great extent the United States of America. Having written a great deal about this subject, particularly in relation to the false flag terror attacks of 9-11, there are a few important things that need to be pointed out about this developing story.

Cryptogon: Leaked phone conversation re: black ops world

I first theorized that EEstor was connected to the Black World in 2006. Now, thanks to an astonishing leak of a private telephone conversation, you can hear Dick Weir, the CEO of EEstor, talking about how he was recruited by the CIA when he was at TRW and how, later on, CIA told him to take the EEstor technology to Lockheed Martin.

This telephone conversation is between Dick Weir and an unidentified person. It’s loose on the Internet. Several aspects of EEstor’s technology, finances and history are discussed. It sounds like the person asking the questions is performing a due diligence workup on EEstor, but that’s just a guess on my part.

I’m not going to link to the audio for the moment but searching for Dick Weir EEStor mp3 will do the trick for you. The file is 18MB and is about 38 minutes long.

Conflict of Interest? Just a scoche. Probable psychopath alert.

A scientist who advises the Government on swine flu is a paid director of a drugs firm making hundreds of millions of pounds from the pandemic.

Professor Sir Roy Anderson sits on the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (Sage), a 20-strong task force drawing up the action plan for the virus.

Yet he also holds a £116,000-a-year post on the board of GlaxoSmithKline, the company selling swine flu vaccines and anti-virals to the NHS.

Sir Roy faced demands to step down yesterday amid claims that the jobs were incompatible. 'This is a clear conflict of interest and should be of great concern to taxpayers and government officials alike,' said Matthew Elliott of the TaxPayers' Alliance.

'You cannot have the man in charge of medical emergencies having any financial interest in the management of those emergencies. We need someone totally unbiased to tackle this crisis.'

The Department of Health and GSK denied there was a conflict and said Sir Roy did not attend Sage meetings where vaccines and drugs were discussed.

What's good for Goldman is bad for the nation

Excerpt:

Oil traded at $67 yesterday. Gold rose to $954 and bond yields on the 10-year T-note rose to 3.7%.

All of this sounds vaguely inflationary…and vaguely bullish. Besides, Goldman stock is rising. And as we all know, what’s good for Goldman is good for the country.

Wait…we’re kidding…right?

Yes, we are kidding. What’s good for Goldman is generally bad for the country. Goldman makes money by separating investors from their money. Nothing wrong with that; someone has to do it. But the big banks are most profitable when speculation is rampant and debt is growing. That is, when people are going further and further into debt…and speculating on rising asset prices. We know you don’t really prosper by borrowing and gambling. But that doesn’t make casinos unpopular, or lenders unlawful. Bankers, like undertakers, benefit from human frailty. At least, they benefit as long as the government bails them out. Otherwise, they fall victim to their own human frailty.

But this is a minority opinion. Most economists disagree with us. And there are so many of them…if all the economists who disagreed with us were laid end-to-end…it would be a good thing. They believe that the economy is stabilizing…and on its way back to normal. Trouble is, ‘normal’ ain’t what it used to be.

Idaho police sodomize man with taser

Then they placed the Taser gun against his genitals and threatened to do the same.

At the time, the domestic violence suspect was lying face down with three officers on top of him, according to the Idaho Statesmen.

He couldn’t even breathe.

It was all caught on tape. Here is the exchange that took place:

Startling new evidence that the "swine flu" pandemic is man made

by Dr. True Ott [link to videos of his presentation in the upper right corner of this page - ed.]

Murder suspects are either convicted or acquitted at trial based on the prosecution's presentation of EVIDENCE which usually hinges on MOTIVE, OPPORTUNITY, and TIME-LINES combined with physical documents. To gather such hard evidence, detectives and/or federal agents often spend months following leads and interviewing witnesses. In the trial phase, re-creating the sequence of events is essential. I submit this paper will provide more than enough hard evidence to at least result in a series of criminal indictments of charges of MASS MURDER, and CONSPIRACY TO COMMIT WORLD GENOCIDE against Novartis Pharmaceutical principals and agents and others.

...

Understanding these historical facts is very important for this reason: Those that ignore history are doomed to repeat it. This is doubly true when it comes to blindly accepting a "novel" mass vaccination for a weaponized, "reverse engineered" virus.

The historical record is very clear ­ attenuated, live viruses in vaccines SPREAD the disease very effectively. When combined with SQUALENE ADJUVANT ­ the virus becomes many times more potent and lethal. When given to CHILDREN IN SCHOOLS, millions of "typhoid Matts and Marys" will be spreading the disease exponentially.

Chillingly, the Novartis patent for the "novel pandemic flu" declares that "African green monkey kidney cells" will be used for the "viral growth substrate" ­ i.e. the carrier medium.
(Page 3, paragraph 0037) We also see that "oil-in-water" squalene-based adjuvants will also be included (page 8 ­ 0098) but most incredible of all, because this is a "recombinant" and "novel" split vaccine, it is deemed necessary to include fragments of attenuated viruses (i.e. live pathogens) in the vaccine medium.

On July 13, 2009, the W.H.O. sanctioned this lunacy by declaring: "In view of the anticipated limited vaccine availability at global level and the potential need to protect against "drifted" strains of virus, it is recommended that promoting production and use of vaccines such as those that are formulated with oil-in-water adjuvants and live attenuated influenza vaccines is important."

We're the medical establishment, and we're here to help....

Watching the local news this morning I saw a commercial for Shots, etc., a medical entrepreneur specializing in exactly what their name says. The ad was followed up by a 'news feature' on swine flu that said unless an effective vaccine was developed, 40% of Americans may get the flu over the next year and hundreds of thousands may die. Of course the proximity of ads for vaccines and 'news' on swine flu was just a coincidence, wouldn't you think?

Gates reassures Israel on US-Iran strategy

Looks like they're getting cold feet about WW III in Washington. - Ed.

JERUSALEM (Reuters) - U.S. Defense Secretary Robert Gates moved to reassure Israel on Monday that Washington's bid to talk Iran into giving up sensitive nuclear work was worth pursuing, despite Tehran's reticence.

President Barack Obama has put the quest for engagement with Iran at the core of U.S. foreign policy. Israel, which says a nuclear-armed Iran would threaten its survival, has hinted at preemptive strikes should it deem diplomacy a dead end.

During a visit to Israel, Gates affirmed Obama's hope for an Iranian response to the American overtures in time for the U.N. General Assembly in late September.

"I think, based on the information that's available to us, that the timetable that the president has laid out still seems to be viable and does not significantly increase the risks to anybody," Gates told reporters at a press conference with his Israeli counterpart, Ehud Barak.

US says parade of officials visiting Israel purely coincidental

Bethlehem - Ma'an/Agencies - US President Barack Obama will dispatch four of his most senior foreign policy advisors to Israel this week.

The visits seemed designed to pressure Israel on two issues, ending illegal settlement activities and holding off on attacking Iran.

But that all four officials will arrive in Israel almost consecutively was purely a scheduling coincidence, American officials have insisted, according to the AP.

Mantiq al-Tayr: Jew Jersey

1. Back in 2005, poor Tad Rickman, writing for the Denver Daily News, made a typo for which he become infamous for a while. Here’s what he did.

“The Denver Daily News would like to offer a sincere apology for a typo in Wednesday’s Town Talk regarding New Jersey’s proposal to ban smoking in automobiles. It was not the author’s intention to call New Jersey ‘Jew Jersey.’”

I think now everyone owes Tad an apology.

The fact that evil assholes such as the folks below were nabbed in New Jersey should come as no surprise. The state is really not much more than a an Israeli fort filled with all kinds of Israeli spies and criminals.

Racist web posts traced to Homeland Security

Imagine my shock. - Ed.

After federal border agents detained several Mexican immigrants in western New York in June, an article about the incident in a local newspaper drew an onslaught of vitriolic postings on its Web site. Some were racist. Others attacked farmers in the region, an apple-growing area east of Rochester, accusing them of harboring illegal workers. Still others made personal attacks about the reporter who wrote the article.

Most of the posts were made anonymously. But in reviewing the logs of its Internet server, the paper, The Wayne County Star in Wolcott, traced three of them to Internet protocol addresses at the Department of Homeland Security, which oversees border protection
