The BBC’s Panorama channel ‘investigation’ into Labour’s ‘anti-Semitism’ was so blatantly one sided its broadcast as ‘news’ demanded an explanation. In an attempt to grasp why the British national broadcaster fails to fulfil its core mission to report the news in as unbiased a manner as possible, I interviewed a former senior editor for the BBC. The editor, a 35 year veteran of the BBC, reveals the culture that has steered the BBC into its present position as a Zionist mouthpiece.

In acting as a whistle blower, the former editor risks severe consequences. In Britain leading journalists have been locked behind bars and put under threat of extradition for reporting information whose truthfulness has not even been challenged.

Sadly, this danger is heightened under the present toxic political atmosphere in Britain, as demonstrated by its purging of a major political party and its tolerance for abuse of its judicial system to deter and punish anyone who dares to question the Zionist narrative.

Q: When did the BBC become openly biased?

A: The BBC has always been biased towards Israel, and its bias has been well documented. The reasons for this bias have long been the subject of serious academic studies, the best known of which is Greg Philo’s and Mike Berry’s More Bad News from Israel. In fact, in 2006 an independent report commissioned by the BBC’s own governing body concluded that the BBC’s coverage of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict “does not consistently constitute a full and fair account of the conflict but rather, in important respects, presents an incomplete and in that sense misleading picture.”

Q: Who and what drove this cultural and political direction within the corporation?

A: There are a number of drivers behind this biased BBC culture. The most important is the fact that a small number of hardline Zionists occupy key positions at the top and middle levels of the corporation, as well as at the shop-floor level, by which I mean the people who select what to publish or broadcast on a daily basis and who provide editorial steer to journalists. This has been widely publicised and has been in the public domain for some time — see, for example, this http://tinyurl.com/ydhjzeek , these (a) http://tinyurl.com/y7mjtkc6 , (b) http://tinyurl.com/y7k39vsh , and (c) http://tinyurl.com/y3x9nktl . Also see this http://tinyurl.com/y6ne4apn and this http://tinyurl.com/y7l88zwl .

Q: What about political impartiality, supposedly a core BBC value?

ORDER IT NOW

A: Unfortunately, there are many examples of such pro- Israel hype, some blatant and others who slant the news by use of emphasis and/or omission. For instance, there was Sarah Montague’s interview with Israel’s defence minister, Moshe Ya’alon, in March 2015, Head of Statistics’ Anthony Reuben’s reflection on fatalities in Gaza ( http://tinyurl.com/ycc9p8d4 ), and the utilization of Gil Hoffman, an Israeli army reservist and chief political correspondent for the Jerusalem Post to write for the BBC News website ( http://tinyurl.com/yanppk93 ) to mention but a few.

Q: Does the broadcaster have the means or inclination to fix itself ?

A: In my opinion, the chances of the BBC fixing itself is about zero. Apart from what I have said above, it is a cowardly, spineless organisation. Not only does it always pursue the path of least resistance by selecting to broadcast what is least likely to upset the Zionist lobby, but it is also deadly afraid of what the Daily Mail might say about its output. Very often, and by that I mean almost on a daily basis, one would hear senior managers ask at the morning agenda-setting editorial meetings, “What would the Daily Mail say about that?” Invariably, they would choose what is least likely to be picked up and criticised by the Daily Mail. Please remember, this is a public broadcaster that is funded by taxpayers (yes, the License Fee is a tax) and is supposed to “Educate, Inform and Entertain”, not propagandise on behalf of Israel.

Q: Some of the so-called Labour ‘Whistleblowers’ were exposed by Al Jazeera as Israeli Lobby assets. Is it possible that the BBC was so bold as to interview these characters hoping that no one would notice or was it simply a matter of a clumsy decision making? Can the BBC match the journalistic dedication of organisations such as RT or Al Jazeera?

A: There is no chance whatsoever that the BBC would do anything approximating Al Jazeera TV’s programme on Israeli infiltration of the Labour Party ( http://tinyurl.com/yad6fslm ). The BBC is institutionally pro-Zionist and institutionally spineless.

Q: You worked in the corporation for 35 years, did you notice a deterioration in the quality of people hired? Was there a change in employees’ attitudes and their willingness to express themselves freely and critically?

A: I worked for the BBC’s English-language outlets as an editor and senior editor for 35 years. Since the early 1990s there has been growing intolerance of criticism of editorial management decisions, even in internal forums which internal BBC propaganda claims are meant for staff to speak freely. This applies across the board on all matters. But certainly with regard to Israel and Zionism, any questioning of BBC impartiality would attract accusations of anti-Semitism and would certainly spell the end of one’s career, no matter how privately and confidentially such criticism is conveyed.

  1. It wasn’t always this way. See the 2002 BBC documentary Dead in the Water, documenting Israel’s 1967 attack on the USS Liberty.

    It demonstrates conclusively that the attack was deliberate and even goes so far as to speculate that it was a black-flag operation intended to justify a joint US-Israeli invasion of Egypt proper.

    Personally, I’m skeptical of that — although it’s possible. I think Israel just wanted to ensure she wasn’t forced to withdraw from Sinai as she had been in 1956. After all, in the upshot, we didn’t force Israel to withdraw this time — but she may not have been sure of that outcome. Making it appear the Egyptians had sunk the Liberty would have helped to assure we would be in no mood to demand any such thing of Israel.

    Of course, Israel muffed it. She wasn’t able to sink the Liberty, and wasn’t able to prevent her from sending out a distress signal. Machine-gunning the lifeboats was of no use if the attack had to be aborted before the Liberty could be finished off and the surviving crew members never needed to get into those lifeboats.

  2. During the six day war MOSSAD by way of deception provided good looking prostitutes to the Egyptian Air Force personal to distract them whilst their planes were destroyed by MOSSAD. Arabs have yet to learn how the enemies of Islam, enemies of humanity operate by way of deception. 911 terror was also orchestrated by the same entity by way of deception. Tel LIE vised 911 EvangeLIED Santa Claus worshipper’s are also pretending to play around to bring about their Armageddon.


    Zionism is cut from the same cloth as Nazism and Bolshevism, and cut by the same hand – the Anglo-American banking establishment. Insider Anthony C. Sutton has documented this quite well, as has Bill Clinton mentor Carroll Quigley. Zionism is really a bizarre parody of Nazism, right down to the tribal “master race” fantasy, the concentration camps, and the internal, hated, ethnic “other.” Israel was created with an alliance between Nazis and self-hating, atheist, Zionist Jews – Nazi troop ships brought whole Jewish factories and villages to Palestine before the war. They betrayed the observant Jews of Europe. But yes, Mossad works with the CIA to do these false flags. They also fund and run ISIS with the Paedo-gon. Wahabists in Saudia Arabia are in league with them, because they wish to wipe out all other sects of Islam. Israel is left alone, you’ll notice. ISIS never even mentions them. Likewise, they never attack oil rich nations allied with the USA. Only those oil-rich nations that have their own financial system, that stand apart from – the banking establishment. The first thing they did in Libya was to airlift out the gold reserves, and install a Rothschild central bank.

    The Zionist West created Israeli Secret Intelligence Service ISIS to demonize Islam and Muslims.
    The Zionist West has a history of making mockery of the Creator of Heaven’s and earth.
    These are the same godless people whose ancestor’s have killed messenger’s of God that were sent to remind humanity to live by the Shari’ah TEN Commandments.
    But instead they have deviated by engaging in false flag hoaxes such as 9-11, Boston Marathon, London 7-7-7, Paris false flags.
    The have removed the institution of family and decency by legalizing homosexuality, pornography, gambling, Adultery, fraudulent money and outright criminal wars based on Weapons of Mass Deception.
    And now they got people such as yourselves invoking insults to your Creator without even reflecting what repercussion and wrath it will invite from your maker.
    But ISIS-Israeli Secret Intelligence Service disguised as Islamic state needs to hear this loud and clear: No country’s actions are worse than yours. What you choose to carry out is infinitely more reprehensible – because whenever you do something horrific you have the audacity to invoke God’s name first.

    ‘There’s nothing special about Israel. The BBC has a policy on every contentious subject, domestic or international. A conspicuous current example is Brexit.’

    Lol. This piece notwithstanding, the BBC used to give Israel a pretty hard time.

    Then, at some point about fifteen years ago, it was very noticeably brought to heel and has since toed the Zionist line as closely as it can without visible displays of submissive piddling.

    The same applies to the Guardian, by the way. Many of its staff who used to report accurately on the Middle East can now be found on Middle East Eye.

    In a way, I find the Zionism of these organs a lot more nauseating than that of, say, the Wall Street Journal or Fox News. At least with the latter, there’s a kind of ideological consistency to their Zionism. With the BBC and the Guardian, it’s the rankest, most craven hypocrisy imaginable.

  5. A primary strategy of the parasitic race in question is to subvert cultural institutions so they promote the parasitic race’s interests even when these interests are destructive of the host nation’s culture and the well-being of its citizens. The parasitic race has become confident that it now controls the host population as this strategy becomes widespread and brazen. The ultimate outcome is likely to be unpleasant for the host population but also an exceedingly unpleasant surprise for the parasitic race. This tragicomedy has been playing out now for well over two millennia.

    Interesting. I was about to comment that the BBC was often anti-Israel and pro-Palestine (e.g. in its coverage of Jenin, and Muhammad al-Durrah), but in the light of your comment I realise that these things happened more than 15 years ago, and I haven’t been paying attention to BBC TV news since then.

    It would be interesting to know how the change was made, and by whom.

    The USS Liberty was an ELINT ship. The Israeli’s attacked it to prevent the US listening in to Israeli military radio traffic, and keep the US in the dark re Israel’s operations.

  9. Here is an article that clearly explains the pro-Israel bias in America’s mainstream media:

    https://viableopposition.blogspot.com/2019/04/the-pro-israel-skew-in-american.html

    This study shows us that the pro-Israel narrative has become so firmly entrenched in the American mainstream media that it is almost impossible for news consumers to discern the truth about the situation in Israel and Palestine. This has greatly benefitted Washington which has made it abundantly clear that it sides with Israel in this fifty year-old conflict.

    Thnx for the BBC video. I don’t normally ‘do’ such, but there is one BBC video I know of that is an absolute must, namely “The century of the self,” and in particular, its revelations about Bernays.

    IMHO, religion is a ‘mental crutch;’ it only works for those smitten by ‘fear of death,’ namely their own. ‘Believe in me, get eternal life’ is the pitch that believers swallow hook, line and sinker. Now the BBC [as the AusBC] conduits hasbara in all its forms and degrees; this is only possible because that is both permitted and so ordered by the ‘deep state.’ Now, the big Q: ‘Why?’ Has the big A: ‘Judaizing heresy.’ This did not suddenly arrive 15 years ago but preceded Balfour and may have originated with Oliver Cromwell. As a form of ‘proof’ I offer one comment, taken together with its two responses, from another unz-thread:

    Note that in those comments, Cromwell’s angle was finance but the introduced parasites’ poison was subsequently infiltrated into the X-tian religion to the point where the Anglos are, to use my word, totally smitten and consequentially abase themselves before the ‘Judaizing heresy’ which in turn means that the controlling faction in the Anglo [UK,US,etc.] ‘deep state’ all quiver in fear of their own *inevitable/irreversible* deaths. What miserable cretins. rgds

  12. The Canadian Broadcasting Corporation (CBC) is also under the editorial control of pro-Zionists.

    Since the takeover, they have a limited number of revolving topics: holocaust, anti-semitism, slavery, South African Apartheid, Jewish diaspora feel-good stories, Black lives matter, aboriginal suffering, colonialism, Islamophobia/ why-can’t-we-accept-women-in-hijabs, the KKK, white racism, reparations for Jewish victims of history, refugees, the need to crush white identity….

    You cannot go a week of even a day without a mention of one of the above. News critical of Jews or Israel is not allowed.

  13. Tsigantes says:

    My father was a Fleet st. journalist trained on the job after the war, and rather too quickly made a war correspondant covering the Greek civil war, Korea and Partition. After this he was sent to Washington in the 60s as the paper’s in situ correspondent, one of the first. I was christened at St. Bride’s in Fleet st. with a legendary editor standing as Godfather. There were no journalism or media schools in those days and journalists did not make much money, even the best had modest incomes. One did not enter this field to in order to make a fortune.

    This all changed sometime in the late 1980s. Suddenly as a young person I was meeting other young people who fresh out of Oxford or Media Studies were making double my father’s salary as a syndicated senior journalist when they were still juniors and saw this as normal. Those at the television studies were raking in even more and the former modest Beeb salaries began to rise. Along with The City, “media” suddenly became a lucrative career choice for the young. During this period the quality of the copy editing and editing in general began to noticeably wobble and nose dive. This coincided too with Margeret Thatcher’s printer’s strike war, the shuttering of the Times, the moves to the Docklands, the rise of the computer. And since then, it has been downhill all the way in terms of quality and integrity – though quality reporting and journalism did continue to exist here and there, though always less and less. And sometime in the early 2000s we were informed of the new eye-watering salaries at the top of the Beeb, awarded to unknown outsider appointees with no experience of journalism or media – salaries justified by the need to compete with “business”. Supposedly, without fantastically large salaries the “best” would not be attracted to these jobs!

    Yes, the technical side of journalism changed radically in those years but this was no reason to affect quality – in fact it could easily have improved quality. Yet today’s msm is a repulsive morass of lies and outright propaganda, of such transparent poor quality that it would be laughable if it weren’t so sinister.
    I put this timeline forward for consideration!

    ‘…Yes, the technical side of journalism changed radically in those years but this was no reason to affect quality – in fact it could easily have improved quality. Yet today’s msm is a repulsive morass of lies and outright propaganda, of such transparent poor quality that it would be laughable if it weren’t so sinister…’

    That accords with my impression. Sometimes I think that I’m just becoming a suspicious and cynical old man — but it really does seem like over the years things have gotten worse…and worse, and worse. It used to be that you could put a certain credence in what you read and saw — okay, there might be a slant, but you weren’t literally being lied to.

    Now, you are. When I go to the media these days, it tends to be see how they’re spinning it, what they’re hiding and what they’re not, etc — not to find out what the truth is so much as to see what lies they’re trying to get me to believe. ‘Is Fox News hiding this as well? They’re not? That’s interesting…’

    Hardly likely to have been tasked to listen to Israeli military radio traffic if it didn’t have Hebrew speaking translators on board. See this excerpt from a post at Global Research:

    The USS Liberty Revisited
    By Elias Davidsson

    A different story was leaked to the Associated Press. In a AP wire story from 9 June 1967, written by Bob Horton from aboard the aircraft carrier America, he quoted an unnamed officer who told him:

    “To put it bluntly, [the Liberty] was there to spy for the U.S. Russia does the same thing. We moved in close to monitor the communications of both Egypt and Israel. We have to. We must be informed of what’s going on in matter of minutes.”[14]

    That story, published in the garb of a “credible source”, was also contrived. For, as transpired during various inquiries and testimonies, the Liberty did not carry Hebrew-speaking officers or linguists able to monitor Israeli communications.[15] According to US Marine Bryce Lockwood, cited by Joan Mellen, he was specifically told by David Lewis of the Liberty, that in the case they intercept Israeli communications, they were to drop those. They were not to intercept communications of their ally.[16] As for the Arab-speaking linguists on the Liberty, they found themselves virtually out of work, as by June 8, the Egyptian army was already defeated by Israel and there were no Egyptian combat communications to be monitored.

  18. Of course the BBC is a Zionist mouthpiece. The English aristocracy has interbred with the Jews since the time of Oliver Cromwell in the 1600’s. A Jew, Benjamin Disraeli, even served as the PM of the UK twice in the 1800’s, during the reign of Queen Victoria. He was of Sephardic Jewish Italian mercantile background.

    Many rich Jews from the US married into the British aristocracy in the late 1800’s after the industrial revolution lured away a lot of farmers to work in the factories, and the rich landowning aristocrats started having trouble holding on to their family estates. The popular BBC show Downton Abbey was about such a union. The aristocrats got to hold on to their family estates, while the Jews gained the respectability and legitimacy that they craved. Win-win.

    Tony Blair, as soon as he became prime minister, essentially liquidated the “Arabic Section” of the BBC. The article below is incorrect, the Arabic Section was shut down in 1997 and under Tony Blair’s prime ministership. The Middle East Monitor is yet another of those propaganda outlets financed by various states with common aims.

    More than a decade later, in 1996, the BBC was forced to close down its Arabic section following pressure from Riyadh when the Saudis again sought to suppress a documentary exposing more executions in the country. Around 250 journalists lost their jobs

    The Daily Mail angle is interesting. I read the online DM every day and they’ve a very active commentariat that are a proxy for UK opinion.

    IMO they’re running the following editorial policy:

    1) Cover all major news stories plus lots of human interest ones (Royalty, crime, social, lifestyle etc.)

    2) Generally allow free comments that can run into 1000’s. Give the British free rein on comments and the results can be hilarious – and their comments section is obviously now a big part of the DM’s success.

    3) The GB public is Royalist, Brexit, conservative and hate all the SJW stuff while enjoying celebrity glamour.

    4) The DM runs the obligatory pro-Zionist stories, always with censored comments (only favourable allowed – but permitting heavy red down arrowing). They tried hard with the Corbyn Anti-Semitism stories but got zero reaction. The British public couldn’t care less about Anti-Semitism. Their pet hates are Tony Blair (WMD lies), Theresa May (going back on Brexit) and Meghan Markle (sticking two fingers up to British traditions) and in general BBC “luvvies” and immigration.

    5) They even ran a human interest angle on 9/11 (The brother of a UK person who was killed in the Towers and who questioned the official story). The DM actually laid out the counter arguments and got a massive commentary response agreeing that it was all fakery.

    The BBC claims that these neo-Nazis were supporters of the Russian-speakers who do not wish to be controlled by the ZioNazis of Kiev.

    In reality, the Italian police said the precise opposite. This weaponry was destined to help the ZioNazis of Ukraine. They were to be used against the beleaguered defenders of the Donbass region.

    You raise an interesting point. I remember the outcry over the Beeb reporting on the Falklands…that the Beeb was left wing and treasonous. The BBC was giving massive air time to Labour MPs and talking heads saying that the Falklands should be abandoned, handed to the Argentinians.

    My left wing father (ex-WW2 RN submarine officer) surprised me by pointing out that whatever the rights or wrongs of UK ‘owning’ the Falklands the fact was that they did and therefore in the circumstance of armed invasion the UK was obliged to defend it on the principle of national sovereignty. Not to mention discouraging other such invasions.

    I bring this up because exactly these issues have re-appeared today.

    That is, the old left-wingism of BBC reportage has morphed into the new left-wingism of today: i.e. LGBT+, racism, anti-semitism, indoctrinating homosexuality & trans issues into infants in state schools etc. Pro-EU, pro-open borders, pro-migrant, pro-Israel, pro-war. Anti-Brexit, anti-sovereignty, anti-patriotism, anti-nationalism, anti-religion, anti traditional family…all of which the Beeb loudly deems ‘fascist’ [deplorable] across all its channels.

    Mrs Thatcher changed many things about the UK, and few of them for the better.

    We stopped worrying about the trade deficit. North Sea Oil disguised its huge underlying expansion.

    We expanded credit exponentially. Mortgages were literally the only credit most people had, but that all changed.

    As a result, house prices started their inexorable rise.

    As a result, more women started working outside the home.

    Which inflated house prices even more.

    She “liberalised” Sunday trading.

    Blair, Major and Cameron just kept this going, and threw a few more debt-financed items into the mix. There was no real structural difference – apart from opening the borders, of course.

    “I am reminded of a conversation I had a couple of years ago with the city fathers of Liverpool, who were talking excitedly about their plans for the 2008 city of culture. They spoke a good deal of the booming ‘leisure sector’ in the city; eventually I came to realise that what they meant by this was drinking. I remember sitting in one of those packed drinking dens late one night with a notebook thinking blearily I had cracked the mystery of Labour’s economic policy: create as many students as possible, encourage them to live in blighted city centres, surround them with cheap drink and all-night licensing hours, allow them heavy debt, and let the consequently rampant ‘leisure industry’, in league with property developers, rebuild your cities.

    I don’t watch BBC now – the satellite footprint has been reduced – and only occasionally goto the site.

    I would not call that slant leftwing (the Yanks do though). All of those “liberation movements” should be categorized and analyzed using the functional yardstick by asking what is the intention and final aim. Most of the objectives are easily seen as pro-capitalism and anti-working class (e.g. migration= lower wages, dilution of class identity, social cohesion and solidarity), others aim at creating social tensions by conferring rights and privileges and aggravating differences; e.g. making Blacks more assertive leads to more conflict. Note that none of those social issues address the main mission of the Left: a Socialist society, end of Capitalism. Remember why Blair (that criminal low-life) opened the gates to immigration? The New Labour study that concluded that immigrants tend to vote Labour.

    I, for one (a hardline socialist) do not subscribe to any of those diversity diversions.

    As to the Falklands, it was a godsend for the Churchillian Maggie.

    British Bullshit Corporation , a propaganda tool at the service of the City

  43. The good news is that the BBC in its present form may well be doomed. It is financed of course by the ‘licence fee’, currently £150 a year or so. Resistance to paying this is growing very fast. Apparently over a million households (about 5% of the existing base) are cancelling their payments every year, and most people under the age of 30 have little or no time for broadcast TV whatever.

    The comment sections of newspaper-website stories about BBC profligacy or bias are loaded with exhortations to stop paying, or accounts from those who stopped paying long ago encouraging others to do likewise. The fee (in reality a regressive tax) is enforced by third-party companies controlled by the notorious public contractor, Capita. They employ the sort of low-lifes who are too stupid even to qualify as traffic wardens, though they are cut from much the same cloth. These men (they are usually men) are given rigorous sales targets and work on commission. They concentrate on areas of high-density, low-value housing, because that is more efficient: most ‘evaders’ are relatively poor or ill-educated. Capita maintains a flaky database of every address in the UK, so they think they know which households are unlicensed. The assumption is that everyone watches live TV and if they do not have a licence to do so they are criminals.

    The ‘enforcement agents’ try to elicit a doorstep admission; this tactic is especially productive with women, and most of those prosecuted are indeed women of social class C and below. The accused appear at the local Magistrates’ Court, which often seems little more than a conveyor belt for such cases. The maximum fine is £1000, but in practice the average is about £200. If you cannot or will not pay they put you in jail.

    Capita also sends out blizzards of letters to non-payers, addressed to ‘The Occupier’, using carefully calibrated conditional language to threaten impending prosecution. These, together with the tactics outlined above, have made the BBC very unpopular indeed. For years, the BBC tried to distance itself from the process by pretending that it was the province of the ‘TV Licensing Authority’ (later ‘TV Licensing’) and the BBC itself was merely the recipient of the proceeds. The internet has changed all that: everyone now knows that TVL is merely a trading name of the BBC.

    Even BBC supremo Lord Hall admitted this week that the BBC may have to move eventually to a subscription model. If that happens, the whole rotten edifice will collapse, but I would not put it past the UK Government to fund it from general taxation. Even so, the decline in TV-viewing by the young will guarantee a weakening and perhaps an end to the BBC’s power and reach.

    @Tired of Not Winning

    Your comment carries a certain amount of substance, but is essentially flawed I fear. I suspect that you are not a native Briton, or if you are, you are unaware of the sometimes very subtle nuances of the English class system and especially of the aristocratic traditions it supports. The BBC was never staffed by the aristocracy (or indeed the rest of the upper-class – not all upper-class Brits are members of the aristocracy). It traditionally attracted middle-class metropolitan intellectuals (anathema to the upper-classes), many of whom were indeed Jewish (Alan Yentob, Michael Grade, etc). Lord Reith (its august early Chairman) was given a peerage, but by no means could he be described as aristocratic (in common with the great majority of peers today), being the son of a poor Scottish Presbyterian minister. Thus the views taken by the BBC are by no means to be conflated with those of the aristocracy. The opposite is more frequently the case.

    It is true that the examples of titled aristocrats marrying into money are many. Comparatively few such unions involved Jews, however. A classic example is to be found when the ninth Duke of Marlborough inherited his ancestor’s monstrous house Blenheim Palace, a gift from Queen Anne (together with the dukedom) to John Churchill for his leading role in having defeated Louis XIV’s force in the War of Spanish Succession (the palace was named after the crucial battle of Blenheim in 1704). The ninth duke inherited an impoverished estate, with most of the palace’s art treasures already sold. He rescued the Churchill’s fortunes (they were never actually very wealthy, and had only originally acquired the Blenheim estate on account of it being a gift from Queen Anne) by the tactic of contracting a loveless marriage to American heiress Consuela Vanderbilt in 1895. She, of course, was not at all Jewish.

    As for Disraeli, he was indeed Jewish, and was (as was the custom with outgoing Prime Ministers) given an earldom (he was created Earl of Beaconsfield on his retirement from politics). Several other ‘political Jews’ have subsequently been ennobled, the highest rank of peerage awarded to one such being the marquessate of Reading, created in 1926 for Rufus Isaacs. None the less, to claim, as you do, that the English aristocracy are somehow to be generally conflated with Jewry is a crass error. The bulk of the aristocracy remain very English. Indeed a good chum of mine’s family have been Lords of theh Manor of the same Lincolnshire estate for nigh on a thousand years (since 10680 and nary a Jew has ever besmirched their noble line.

    I think there was something they didn’t want us to find out. It’s significant that it was an advanced surveillance ship that they attacked. Something about the nature of the war and who really started it perhaps. Or maybe it was simply punitive for not having entered the war on their side.

    The neocon Bush administration appears to have done a lot for making many organizations prozionist. It was a motive blended with the war on terror, and the “either with us or against us” philosophy.

The sailors on the Liberty did not know it of course, but it was an agreement between the highest level of the US government, namely LBJ, to have the Israelis sink the ship, blame the Egyptians, and then have the US go to war against Egypt rather than let Israel lose precious lives in combat. If anyone is to blame it is the president of the United States and those who knew about the arrangement. The attack on the Liberty stopped because a Russian spy trawler appeared on the scene.

Nancy Pelosi, Chuck Schumer are no better than Trump, they can pretend to oppose Trump all they want, Trump just says out loud what they are thinking. The good ol uniparty rolls on.

    https://mondoweiss.net/2019/07/progressive-introduced-conference/

    Senate Democrats blocked a Middle East policy bill that was proposed by Florida Senator Marco Rubio in January. That bill contained a provision that would have given states the legal right to punish companies if they boycotted Israel. At the Christians United for Israel (CUFI) Summit earlier this month, Rubio blamed the death of his bill on Minnesota Rep. Ilhan Omar and other freshman congresswoman

    This resolution will fuel arguments that anyone (including members of Congress & candidates) who supports, tolerates, or even brushes up against BDS is anti-Israel & anti-Semitic — and the argument that those who back this Resolution who don’t denounces them as such are hypocrites.” In fact, Rubio has already done this. After the resolution was introduced in March he tweeted, “House Dems offer resolution rebuking #BDS but won’t pass bill protecting states & local govts who decide not to contract with firms that boycott #Israel.

    In addition to providing future fodder for pro-Israel lawmakers and groups like AIPAC, H.Res. 246 also effectively tags BDS supporters as antisemitic. While the legislation doesn’t come out and say this directly, it claims that the “BDS Movement targets not only the Israeli government but also Israeli academic, cultural, and civil society institutions, as well as individual Israeli citizens of all political persuasions, religions, and ethnicities, and in some cases even Jews of other nationalities who support Israel” and goes on to assert that “many of its supporters explicitly deny, the right of the Jewish people to national self-determination.” The text also states that “a founder of the BDS Movement has denied the right of the Jewish people in their homeland, saying, ‘We oppose a Jewish state in any part of Palestine. No Palestinian, rational Palestinian, not a sell-out Palestinian, will ever accept a Jewish state in Palestine.’”

    Notably the resolution has not received support from Reps. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Ilhan Omar, Ayanna Pressley, or Rashida Tlaib, who all found themselves targets of a racist Twitter tirade from President Trump last Sunday. Trump mentioned Israel six times while attacking the congresswomen and said they should apologize to the people of the country.

    Tlaib recently blasted the resolution as unconstitutional and, according to Al-Monitor, Omar might be introducing her own resolution to possibly counter this one. “We are introducing a resolution..to really speak about the American values that support and believe in our ability to exercise our first amendment rights in regard to boycotting,” she told site, “And it is an opportunity for us to explain why it is we support a nonviolent movement, which is the BDS movement.”

    Ilhan Omar’s bill backs Americans’ right to boycott Israel. Here’s why it will fail
    https://www.rt.com/usa/464519-omar-bds-bill-analysis/

    Omar (D-Minnesota) formally submitted the resolution to the House Judiciary Committee on Tuesday. Though the bill’s text does not explicitly mention BDS, it unmistakably endorses the movement that seeks to launch an international pressure campaign to incentivize Israel to withdraw from occupied territories and negotiate a peace settlement with the Palestinian leadership.

    The resolution was co-introduced by Palestinian-American congresswoman Rashida Tlaib (D-Michigan), the only other member of Congress who openly supports BDS. The bill has attracted four other co-sponsors – all Democrats

    While President Donald Trump has got a lot of flak from the media and Democrats for recognizing Jerusalem as the Israeli capital, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-New York) has boasted that it was he who urged the president to do so.

    Schumer has clashed with Omar before, over her support for the Palestinian cause. Speaking at the annual American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) conference, he accused her of anti-Semitism.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-California) also attacked Omar the 2019 AIPAC meeting. Though not mentioning Omar by name, she made a thinly-veiled reference to comments she had made about the Israel lobby in the US that some mainstream media construed as being anti-Semitic.

    “We must also be vigilant against bigoted or dangerous ideologies masquerading as policy and that includes BDS … it does not recognize the right of Jewish people to national self-determination,” Pelosi said.

    Notably, pro-Israel lobbyists spent more than $22 million during the 2018 US election cycle, with AIPAC leading the way. Members of both parties received substantial sums. In fact, according to data from the Center for Responsive Politics, Democrats actually received more in pro-Israel campaign contributions during the 2016 and 2018 election cycles.

    As for the Republicans, they have been taking the crusade against BDS to even greater extremes. The very first bill introduced into the Senate in 2019, by Senator Marco Rubio (R-Florida), included the provision called “Combating BDS Act of 2019” that would allow states to take punitive measures against companies that pledge not to do business with Israel or Israeli-owned companies – one of the central tactics promoted by BDS.

    When it came up for a floor vote in February, the bill was approved by 77 votes to 23. The only reason it is not the law of the land is that its companion bill has yet to be voted on in the House.

    Anti-BDS bill
    Worse still for Omar, opposition to her bill is already being played out in Congress. On the very same day that she introduced the resolution, the House Foreign Affairs Committee, of which Omar is a member, voted on another bill to explicitly denouncing BDS. The movement undermines the two-state solution by and unfairly demands concessions from just one side of the conflict, while incentivizing the Palestinian leadership to reject negotiations, the bill says.

    The counter-resolution currently has the support of about 70 percent of House Democrats, including the vice chair of the House Progressive Caucus, Ro Khanna (D-California), who is a co-sponsor. Because the bill does not criminalize or otherwise penalize those who support BDS, it has come to be seen as a compromise position between criminalization and support.

    I don’t know much about the Liberty incident but its clear that it was a setup to involve the US in the 6 day war if necessary. My theory is as follows:

    The Liberty arrived at the war zone quite late in the war, day 4 as I believe. It was a backup arranged between the US and Israeli MICs if the Jews were losing the war and Egypt was about to take over Zion. If this happened the ship could be attacked and bring the US into the war attacking Egypt. As it happened the Jews were in a clear winning position by day 4. There was therefore no need to attack the ship but the Jews did it anyway. I think this was to judge their position in regards to US/Zion political relations. The Jews could always pretend it was an accident and cover themselves this way, so there was never any issue with that. It was what the US did that was of interest to them. As it turned out, the US kneeled down and covered it up, so the Jews knew from that point that the US was their shabbos.

    As a further comment, I’d say that that was why the ship was not sunk. It seems to me that since the ship was an unarmed sitting duck and not very large, it would be impossible for planes and torpedo boats to not sink it. Why was the ship only hit with one torpedo and not six? The idea was to create enough damage to create an ‘atrocity against the US’ that could be taken up by the political system and media if they so desired, but they didn’t. It could be that this aspect, to test US political reaction, was part of the plan from the beginning.

    Daily Mail is surprising good in publishing stories w/o any spin. Also lots of photographic and video evidence in ‘terrorist attacks’ stories that other media outlets withhold.

    There are a lot of people reading the Daily Mail online. My latest comment there just got 1326 up votes (and 145 down votes).

    Read the book Blood in the Water by Joan Mellen about the joint zio.US and Israeli attack on the USS Liberty, this book came out in December 2018 and is the best overall book on the war crime committed against the crew of the Liberty.

    The book can be had on amazon.

    “… salaries justified by the need to compete with “business.”

    — Salaries justified by the need to buy journalists and make obedient and eager presstitutes out of the “unknown outsider appointees with no experience of journalism or media.”

    This is how we’ve got Amanpour, Maddow, Colbert, Stephanopoulos, the whole editorial of the NYT, the molested and deformed New Yorker, and other Atlantic Councils specializing in disinformation and slander.

    That may all be an under researched flight of imagination but it hangs together well enough that I wouln’t dismiss it as totally implausible starting from the assumption that the Israelis could have sunk the ship easily enough.

    You may be interested to know that Nigel Farage’s Brexit Party (which I joined a few months ago for a trifling fee) is currently making a national exercise of asking it’s first registered supporters’ base to make suggestions for popular and effective national policies once the party gains government office (which is increasingly likely to be quite soon, and quite certain).

    One of the most common and popular national policy suggestions has been the scrapping of the BBC’s nationally-protected financial status courtesy of it’s funding by a mandatory “Licence Fee” – a government-backed tax which rises every single year.

    Once this happens, and the BBC is suddenly made to live by the same market rules of supply-and-demand as everyone else, there will be very sudden and very profound changes at the BBC. It’s bloated, corrupt tax-funded lifestyle encompassing colossal management and celeb salaries, monopoly on political broadcasting power, and shameless money-wasting purchases of 3rd-party independent productions for radio and television full of Jew / black / gay cultural-marxist garbage will come to a very sudden end.

    “The Times They are a-Changin’ ” – as (((Bob Dylan))), enduring BBC cultural hero, used to say.

    Did you also read this part (see the bold text) of the quote from the USS Liberty Revisted article in my original post?

    According to US Marine Bryce Lockwood, cited by Joan Mellen, he was specifically told by David Lewis of the Liberty, that in the case they intercept Israeli communications, they were to drop those. They were not to intercept communications of their ally.[16] As for the Arab-speaking linguists on the Liberty, they found themselves virtually out of work, as by June 8, the Egyptian army was already defeated by Israel and there were no Egyptian combat communications to be monitored.

    And see the bolded sentence in the quote below, copied from the same article, which would further add to the likelihood that the Liberty was intentionally sent into harm’s way as a convenient target (lightly armed and therefore unable to fight back) for a devastating false flag attack. It appears other US listening stations on Cyprus were quite capable of monitoring Israeli communications.

    Responding to the charge that Israel knowingly attacked and made a concerted effort to sink (with the loss of all hands) the intelligence gathering ship of their closest friend and benefactor, the excuse was made that Israel did it to hide from the US that they were planning an attack on Syria.

    Another motive initially offered for Israel’s action was that it did not wish the United States to know about Israel’s plans to attack Syria. Admiral Thomas Moorer, for example, wrote in the July-August 1997 issue of The Link magazine:

    Israel was preparing to seize the Golan Heights from Syria despite President Johnson’s known opposition to such a move…. And I believe [Israeli Defense Minister] Moshe Dayan concluded that he could prevent Washington from becoming aware of what Israel was up to by destroying the primary source of acquiring that information – the USS Liberty.[4]

    Israel actually made no attempts to hide its plans to attack Syria. U.S. officials, such as U.S. Ambassador to Israel Walworth Barbour, reported on June 8, that he “would not, repeat not, be surprised if the reported Israeli attack [on the Golan] does take place or has already done so.”[5] Israeli Intelligence Chief Aharon Yariv told Harry McPherson, a senior White House aide who was visiting Israel at the time, that “there still remained the Syria problem and perhaps it would be necessary to give Syria a blow.”[6] Such suspicions were not based on interceptions by the USS Liberty but on direct contacts between the U.S. and Israel. In any case, the USS Liberty was not the only platform able to intercept Israeli communications. Such interception could be effectively be carried out from Cyprus.[7] And the Liberty was not tasked to intercept Israeli communications.

    Regarding religion being a mental crutch. I do understand where you’re coming from and don’t want to disagree, just offer another viewpoint.

    Since I first fasted in Ramadhan in 1977, I’ve only missed doing it about 3 times. I’ve discovered that far from being a mental crutch, the discipline required to fast has brought about tangible benefits and new understanding.

    Doing the Christian fast in Lent would have similar results. I don’t feel in reality there is a spiritual division between the different religions! The same goes for praying, It’s not just wishy washy pie in the sky, after a while the electricity of the life force will be felt coursing through the body whatever the religion. Sorry, I don’t normally proselytize.

    In this State June 29, 2009 State Department briefing, Secy of State Hillary Clinton about the “unfortunate events that occurred yesterday . . .” —

    “which were a test of the inter-American system’s ability to support and defend democracy and constitutional order in our hemisphere.
    The United States has been working with our partners in the OAS to fashion a strong consensus condemning the detention and expulsion of President Zelaya, and calling for the full restoration of democratic order in Honduras. Our immediate priority is to restore full democratic and constitutional order in that country.”

    https://www.c-span.org/video/?287334-1/state-department-daily-briefing

    Ian Kelly, State Department Spokesman, said the US joined in “condemning” the “deplorable actions” that occurred.”

    Forward to about 21 min. when a journalist (!) challenges Kelly, saying that it is not clear that US is demanding that Zelaya be returned to power, citing Secy. Clinton’s ambiguous statements in that regard.
    Kelly rejects that notion and claims that US joined in an OAS statement demanding Zelaya’s return to power.

    That was early days in what Zelaya told Grey Zone was Honduras’s “descent into hell.”

    Over the past several weeks C Span has devoted several of its Washington Journal call-in segments to the “situation of migrants at the border,” where they are horribly treated.” “Concentration camp,” “just like the Nahzees,” and “just like Germany persecuted the Jews” were voiced and amplified as if the speakers had actual information on what they were talking about (rather than performing one of the more intriguing abilities of the mynah bird), nor was it registered the grand irony of these chants.

    Unz commenter robjil has informed Unz readers what C Span has failed do:

    robjil provided several links to- and excerpts from- articles and interviews about Israeli involvement in the 2009 coup

    from robjil’s July 8, 2019 comment:

    https://www.opdeepstate.com/2018/10/21/honduras-and-the-israeli-coup-a-new-special-relationship-immigration/

    One topic we touched on was a comment the left-leaning Zelaya had made concerning “Israeli mercenaries” operating in Honduras. This had unleashed a predictable hullabaloo in international media, with commentators tripping over each other to portray the besieged leader as an anti-Semite extraordinaire on some sort of permanent acid trip.

    In my write-up of the interview, which was published in an insignificant publication, I happened to point out that Israeli mercenaries weren’t exactly foreign to the Central American landscape. When the piece came out, the publisher of another insignificant publication—to which I had contributed some anti-coup articles—threw a fit. How dare I bring the Israelis into it; I would alienate all of Washington!

    Who are the Oligarchs of Honduras? They are five Jewish families. Sorry, but that is reality. What would the protesters do if they knew about this? What kind of place is these Jewish Oligarchs creating in Honduras? It must not be much good, since they are fleeing to the US. Why can’t these protesters protest about what these Oligarchs are doing down there?

    https://www.islam-radio.net/islam/english/jewishp/honduras/jew_rule_honduras.htm

    The ‘Turks’ are the oligarchy. A term uncommon in the first world, but appropriate for the third poorest country in the Americas, where it refers to a fistful of families tied together before and after the coup that ousted the president flirting with Hugo Chavez-like policies.

    Even if everybody calls them ‘Turks’ they are actually families of Jewish origin coming from Arab countries in the 40s and 50s, away from the desert and the wars. They are the Rosenthals, the Facussé, the Larachs, the Nassers, the Kafies and the Goldsteins. Five surnames controlling the manufacturing industries, energy utilities, telecommunications, tourism, banks, finance, concrete makers and commerce, airports or the congress. Practically everything.
    They are the kernel of that 3% of Hondurans controlling 40% of the GNP. They are the aristocrats in a country where 70% of the population are poor.

    People like Jaime Rosenthal, presidential candidate in 4 elections and owner of banks, airports, breweries, soccer teams and communications media. He has invested in real estate, phone companies, and the meat exporting business, insurances and telecommunications. Or the Facussés, related with the Nassers, who, in the course of several decades, have divided their energies between business and politics. They are the tycoons of the textile industry in a country where most of brand name garments sold in the USA are made. They control also chemical and precious metals industries. These two families have produced many government officials and there is no decision in the country which is made without them.

    Most of them couldn’t read, write or even speak Spanish when they arrived, but they grew out of the limelight, founding newspapers, exploiting mines, bringing electricity and telephones to the country. They intermarried, they sent their children to American colleges, and they ousted the traditional upper middle class of German and Spanish origin. After three generations they are still controlling the country not letting anybody join their powerful elite.

    In their press briefing on Jun 29, 2009, neither Secy Clinton nor Ian Kelly mentioned Israeli involvement.

  87. The BBC has always been a Jewish mouthpiece; the idea it was at one time good is a fallacy. I’d like (if this comment is allowed) to draw attention to what seems to be the most important idea to be censored, which is that Jews in USA, UK, USSR, Poland, France, and Germany networked with the intention of killing white ‘goyim’ plus of course others. See https://big-lies.org/how-master-race-won-ww2/
    ..
    Another important issue is the nuclear issue. And of course the fake Holocaust remains a staple dietary item of the BBC
