UPDATE: On the morning of September 21st Phil Giraldi was fired over the phone by The American Conservative, where he had been a regular contributor for fourteen years. He was told that “America’s Jews Are Driving America’s Wars” was unacceptable. The TAC management and board appear to have forgotten that the magazine was launched with an article by founder Pat Buchanan entitled “Whose War?” which largely made the same claims that Giraldi made about the Jewish push for another war, in that case with Iraq. Buchanan was vilified and denounced as an anti-Semite by many of the same people who are now similarly attacking Giraldi.

I spoke recently at a conference on America’s war party where afterwards an elderly gentleman came up to me and asked, “Why doesn’t anyone ever speak honestly about the six-hundred-pound gorilla in the room? Nobody has mentioned Israel in this conference and we all know it’s American Jews with all their money and power who are supporting every war in the Middle East for Netanyahu? Shouldn’t we start calling them out and not letting them get away with it?”

It was a question combined with a comment that I have heard many times before and my answer is always the same: any organization that aspires to be heard on foreign policy knows that to touch the live wire of Israel and American Jews guarantees a quick trip to obscurity. Jewish groups and deep pocket individual donors not only control the politicians, they own and run the media and entertainment industries, meaning that no one will hear about or from the offending party ever again. They are particularly sensitive on the issue of so-called “dual loyalty,” particularly as the expression itself is a bit of a sham since it is pretty clear that some of them only have real loyalty to Israel.

Most recently, some pundits, including myself, have been warning of an impending war with Iran. To be sure, the urging to strike Iran comes from many quarters, to include generals in the Administration who always think first in terms of settling problems through force, from a Saudi government obsessed with fear over Iranian hegemony, and, of course, from Israel itself. But what makes the war engine run is provided by American Jews who have taken upon themselves the onerous task of starting a war with a country that does not conceivably threaten the United States. They have been very successful at faking the Iranian threat, so much so that nearly all Republican and most Democratic congressmen as well as much of the media seem to be convinced that Iran needs to be dealt with firmly, most definitely by using the U.S. military, and the sooner the better.

And while they are doing it, the issue that nearly all the Iran haters are Jewish has somehow fallen out of sight, as if it does not matter. But it should matter. A recent article in the New Yorker on stopping the impending war with Iran strangely suggests that the current generation “Iran hawks” might be a force of moderation regarding policy options given the lessons learned from Iraq. The article cites as hardliners on Iran David Frum, Max Boot, Bill Kristol and Bret Stephens.

Daniel Larison over at The American Conservative has a good review of the New Yorker piece entitled “Yes, Iran Hawks Want Conflict with Iran,” which identifies the four above cited hawks by name before describing them as “…a Who’s Who of consistently lousy foreign policy thinking. If they have been right about any major foreign policy issue in the last twenty years, it would be news to the entire world. Every single one of them hates the nuclear deal with Iran with a passion, and they have argued in favor of military action against Iran at one point or another. There is zero evidence that any of them would oppose attacking Iran.”

And I would add a few more names, Mark Dubowitz, Michael Ledeen and Reuel Marc Gerecht of the Foundation for Defense of Democracies; Daniel Pipes of the Middle East Forum; John Podhoretz of Commentary magazine; Elliot Abrams of the Council on Foreign Relations; Meyrav Wurmser of the Middle East Media Research Institute; Kimberly Kagan of the Institute for the Study of War; and Frederick Kagan, Danielle Pletka and David Wurmser of the American Enterprise Institute. And you can also throw into the hopper entire organizations like The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC), the Washington Institute for Near East Policy (WINEP) and the Hudson Institute. And yep, they’re all Jewish, plus most of them would self-describe as neo-conservatives. And I might add that only one of the named individuals has ever served in any branch of the American military – David Wurmser was once in the Navy reserve. These individuals largely constitute a cabal of sanctimonious chairborne warriors who prefer to do the heavy thinking while they let others do the fighting and dying.

So it is safe to say that much of the agitation to do something about Iran comes from Israel and from American Jews. Indeed, I would opine that most of the fury from Congress re Iran comes from the same source, with AIPAC showering our Solons on the Potomac with “fact sheets” explaining how Iran is worthy of annihilation because it has pledged to “destroy Israel,” which is both a lie and an impossibility as Tehran does not have the resources to carry out such a task. The AIPAC lies are then picked up and replayed by an obliging media, where nearly every “expert” who speaks about the Middle East on television and radio or who is interviewed for newspaper stories is Jewish.

One might also add that neocons as a group were founded by Jews and are largely Jewish, hence their universal attachment to the state of Israel. They first rose into prominence when they obtained a number of national security positions during the Reagan Administration and their ascendancy was completed when they staffed senior positions in the Pentagon and White House under George W. Bush. Recall for a moment Paul Wolfowitz, Doug Feith, and Scooter Libby. Yes, all Jewish and all conduits for the false information that led to a war that has spread and effectively destroyed much of the Middle East. Except for Israel, of course. Philip Zelikow, also Jewish, in a moment of candor, admitted that the Iraq War, in his opinion, was fought for Israel.

Add to the folly a Jewish U.S. Ambassador to Israel who identifies with the most right-wing Israeli settler elements, a White House appointed chief negotiator who is Jewish and a Jewish son-in-law who is also involved in formulating Middle East policy. Is anyone providing an alternative viewpoint to eternal and uncritical support for Benjamin Netanyahu and his kleptocratic regime of racist thugs? I think not.

There are a couple of simple fixes for the dominant involvement of American Jews in foreign policy issues where they have a personal interest due to their ethnicity or family ties. First of all, don’t put them into national security positions involving the Middle East, where they will potentially be conflicted. Let them worry instead about North Korea, which does not have a Jewish minority and which was not involved in the holocaust. This type of solution was, in fact, somewhat of a policy regarding the U.S. Ambassador position in Israel. No Jew was appointed to avoid any conflict of interest prior to 1995, an understanding that was violated by Bill Clinton (wouldn’t you know it!) who named Martin Indyk to the post. Indyk was not even an American citizen at the time and had to be naturalized quickly prior to being approved by congress.

Those American Jews who are strongly attached to Israel and somehow find themselves in senior policy making positions involving the Middle East and who actually possess any integrity on the issue should recuse themselves, just as any judge would do if he were presiding over a case in which he had a personal interest. Any American should be free to exercise first amendment rights to debate possible options regarding policy, up to and including embracing positions that damage the United States and benefit a foreign nation. But if he or she is in a position to actually create those policies, he or she should butt out and leave the policy generation to those who have no personal baggage.

For those American Jews who lack any shred of integrity, the media should be required to label them at the bottom of the television screen whenever they pop up, e.g. Bill Kristol is “Jewish and an outspoken supporter of the state of Israel.” That would be kind-of-like a warning label on a bottle of rat poison – translating roughly as “ingest even the tiniest little dosage of the nonsense spewed by Bill Kristol at your own peril.”

As none of the above is likely to happen, the only alternative is for American citizens who are tired of having their country’s national security interests hijacked by a group that is in thrall to a foreign government to become more assertive about what is happening. Shine a little light into the darkness and recognize who is being diddled and by whom. Call it like it is. And if someone’s feelings are hurt, too bad. We don’t need a war with Iran because Israel wants one and some rich and powerful American Jews are happy to deliver. Seriously, we don’t need it.

    Amen brother! And I would like to throw some gasoline on your Neocon fire. President Trump has never worked with military generals before and he is extremely naive to their absolute Machiavellian manipulation of him. Most generals today are expert political backstabbers who advanced during the tragic Neocon and PC era of the past 30 years. Who can forget the disgusting General Casey when he said, “And what happened at Fort Hood was a tragedy, but I believe it would be an even greater tragedy if our diversity becomes a casualty here.” The generals that Trump hired for his administration are now running circles around him, particularly McMaster. They want war to keep the Neocons happy and that is what this crop of generals has been trained to do.

    Yet, in a classic, paradox-tinged pro-Israel loop-back, the ‘alt-Right’ and ‘white nationalist’ movement, is increasing positive links with security-fence-building, also-ethnic-nationalist Israel:

    US alt-right leader, Richard Spencer, appeared on Israeli TV last month to call himself a “white Zionist”

    The above from an interesting article by British activist and Nazareth, Palestine resident Jonathan Cook, speaking of how Israel’s Netanyahu is making an alliance with even the anti-Semitic Western alt-right, with the instinct to show all other Jews that Israel is their only home & safe haven … and hence the ‘progressive’ Jews should abandon any support for boycott of Israel or for Palestinian rights:

    The Israeli prime minister has repeatedly called on all Jews to come to Israel, claiming it as the only safe haven from an immutable global anti-semitism. And yet, Mr Netanyahu is also introducing a political test before he opens the door.

    Jews supporting a boycott of Israel are already barred. Now, liberal Jews and critics of the occupation like Mr Soros are increasingly not welcome either. Israel is rapidly redefining the extent of the sanctuary it offers – for Jewish supremacists only.

    For Mr Netanyahu may believe he has much to gain by abandoning liberal Jews to their fate, as the alt-right asserts its power in western capitals.

    The “white Zionists” are committed to making life ever harder for minorities in the West in a bid to be rid of them. Sooner or later, on Mr Netanyahu’s logic, liberal Jews will face a reckoning. They will have to accept that Israel’s ultra-nationalists were right all along, and that Israel is their only sanctuary.

    Guided by this cynical convergence of interests, Jewish and white supremacists are counting on a revival of anti-Semitism that will benefit them both.

    I suppose Ledeen still believes what he said fifteen years ago, when the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq were still young and dewy-fresh:

    “Every ten years or so, the United States needs to pick up some small crappy little country and throw it against the wall, just to show the world we mean business”.

    This even became known as “The Ledeen Doctrine”; I am sure he is very proud.

    Perhaps today he thinks Iran is a suitable “small crappy little country”. If so, he is very badly mistaken.

    From an April 2003 Haaretz article:

    The war in Iraq was conceived by 25 neoconservative intellectuals, most of them Jewish, who are pushing President Bush to change the course of history. Two of them, journalists William Kristol and Charles Krauthammer, say it’s possible.

    This is a war of an elite. [Tom] Friedman laughs: I could give you the names of 25 people (all of whom are at this moment within a five-block radius of this office) who, if you had exiled them to a desert island a year and a half ago, the Iraq war would not have happened.

    If Jews are “white”, they are a special kind. The Jews, you see, are “God’s chosen” people with a special relationship with the diety … something that eludes the rest of the human race. Jews, at least for the hardcore, must be born of Jewish mothers. So, evidently the privilege of being “chosen” is a genetic disposition associated with the female mitochondria that must be handed down from one generation to another. Therefore, the rest of us, born of non-Jewish mothers, do not and cannot have this privilege.

    Co-Authors Reflect Ten years After Publishing Controversial Book,
    ‘The Israel Lobby’

    “The 2007 book, The Israel Lobby and U.S. Foreign Policy argued that a loose coalition of interests, which supports Israel, lobbies the U.S. government to skew U.S. foreign policy to Israel’s favor. The authors also assert this reality damages, both America’s and Israel’s, long-term interests. “The Israel Lobby” ignited a firestorm of debate. Critics accused the authors of giving voice to historic anti-Semitic slurs. Supporters hailed the book as opening a door to needed dialogue on a taboo subject.

    Ten years later, the book’s co-authors, John Mearsheimer and Stephen Walt, join Worldview to discuss the changes in Middle East dialogue in the decade since they wrote the book. Mearsheimer is professor of political science at the University of Chicago and authored numerous books including, The Tragedy of Great Power Politics. Walt is a professor of International Affairs at the Harvard Kennedy School of Government. He also authored the book, Taming American Power: The Global Response to U.S. Primacy.”

    I’m strongly against any war with Iran, but this comes of as an unhinged and bigoted rant. Not nearly everyone who is pushing for war with Iran is Jewish, and this narrative perpetuates the myth, beloved by alt-right types and paleocons, of a well-intentioned but naive Trump administration that was hijacked by Jewish neocons. In reality, despite differences within the administration, Iran was always something they could all agree on. H.R. McMaster and James Mattis are well known Iran hawks, and neither are Jewish. Nikki Haley isn’t Jewish, nor is Rex Tillerson. Steve Bannon and Michael Flynn wouldn’t have stopped Trump from going to war if they hadn’t been forced out of the administration, as both, especially the latter, were absolute lunatics when it came to Iran. On that subject, they were worse than neocons. And of course there’s Trump himself, whose bloodlust regarding Iran has always been on full display from the beginning, if you were paying attention. Hostility toward Iran might in fact be the most consistent theme of the Trump administration and of Trump himself, who has been known to vacillate on virtually every issue, except this one.

    If you supported Trump because you thought he might be some sort of isolationist dove, you have only yourself to blame. Evil Jewish neocons didn’t force you to ignore the massive evidence that was always right in front of your face.

    Tbere’s a problem with your diagnosis, a potentially fatal problem. In contrast to your mere abuse and vituperation PG makes a reasoned case that America is being pushed towards war with Iran that cannot benefit the US by American Jews who put what they perceive as the interests of Israel first. If you can attack his case on its facts or its reasoning why don’t you do so? It could enlighten impartial readers. But perhaps you are a troll as Che Guava suggests and your purpose is to add strength to PG’s persuasiveness.

Obviously, not all Jews in DC’s and NYC’s elite are driving us to war, and of course many non-Jews are. It remains incontrovertible, however, that a very active, powerful, organized, and influential minority of people, who identify as Jewish, are restless and effective Israel-firsters. They see dragging America into Israel’s wars in the Middle East as furthering Israel’s national security interest. Only a fool would deny the obscene amount of power the Zionist faction wields in the USA.

    Anyone who reads knows that Israel (and its agents, where not dual citizens, the Jewish ones effectively all are, and the goyim dupes and toadies, who are not, ‘cept sometimes with marriage) have been the tail that wags the US dog for many years, starting over a century ago, in finance, commerce, and law in NYC, in a small way the scope is ever wider and the effects more and more blatant.

    The USA is a colony of Israel, everybody is knowing it, but some lie and deny.

    From my reading of history, I would placing the tipping point from ‘excessive power’ to ‘colonial masters’ at the 1967 war of Israel and its neighbours.

  32. I’m intrigued by the sudden anti-Israeli and anti-Jewish line on the US internet. My theory: for about 45 years, the CIA and various private American groups have been trying to destroy what is now called the EU, seen as a challenge to US global hegemony. Up to the Ukrainian coup, Putin was a neocon, and probably also CIA, “asset”. His job was to serve as a battering ram to break up the EU and then as a bogeyman to frighten the resulting plethora of small and largely defenceless statelets to cling to the US for protection, thereby restoring and reinforcing US global hegemony. The idea was to “unwin” the cold war, so to speak! Putin either double-crossed his handlers or quite simple messed up but, in either event, he went for m being an asset to being a major liability. He was discrediting the US and consequently, strengthening the EU, the very opposite of what he was supposed to do. The neocons and the CIA leadership therefore broke with Putin, without, one assumes, giving up the idea of destroying the EU. However, part of the US hegemonist “clan” still thinks it can use Putin to destroy the EU. So they held back Obama. Didn’t work. Then they tried to install a Putin stooge in the White House. Blew up in their faces. Then they tried to install a Putin stooge in France. Didn’t work. The present Israeli government seems to share the neocons’ view that Putin is a liability that must be removed. Logically, therefore, the next step must be to try to install a Putin stooge in Israel. That probably won’t work either but I think the current anti-Israel and anti-Jewish line is the start of that process. The saving grace in all this is the sheer ineptitude of the CIA. At best, their schemes don’t work and at worst, they turn out to be cures worse than the disease!

    And that is exactly the way the power elite think – although they are usually much more cautious about speaking their mind in public.

    Anyway, the American public has shown many times that it really doesn’t give a rat’s ass about foreigners being killed or maimed – not three of them, not three million of them. Foreigners might as well be bugs. What really matters is that feeling of power and superiority: their country is Top Nation and can whip anyone else, yes sir. Politicians continually rely on that undercurrent of nationalist chuavinism, and it never lets them down.

  39. “For those American Jews who lack any shred of integrity, the media should be required to label them at the bottom of the television screen whenever they pop up, e.g. Bill Kristol is “Jewish and an outspoken supporter of the state of Israel.”

    How does that happen? The question defies the entire article. The “Media”. The media Phil just described, is Jewish owned and operated. Who the Hell is going to get the Jewish Jeff Bezos (to cite only one example, but a huge one in Washington), who supports losing enterprise Washington Post, the AEI, the AJC and all the rest with BIG money, how are you going to get HIM to splash across the front page that Bill Kristol is, “Jewish and an outspoken supporter of the state of Israel.” ? How does that work? What are the mechanics of such a proposition? Loss of subscribers? Check, already done. Boycott the WashPost’s advertisers? They already lost those because the paper isn’t viable in the business model of a newspaper, it’s only a very loud megaphone for the Jewish interest. The damned thing runs a 60 million dollar deficit every month, supported tirelessly by Amazon. But nowadays it has become a Pro-Israeli rap-sheet, a monster-shouter for these wars, all of them. How are we to oppose THAT?

    Phil also forgets (or maybe Jewish influence and owndership is so great and such a hegemony he can’t cover it all) the death-grip stranglehold Jews hold on our courts, the banks, Wall Street. Protest any of it, you’re an “Anti”, a racist, a bigot, a Nazi. The most racist, Nazi race/religion/monolith on the planet, Jews, label all who oppose it, racist. And that’s the mantra and they have the media to back it up. Oppose their instruments, the Clintons, all of a sudden, shazzzaaam! You’re dead of a robbery on the streets at 4:00 AM. There are dozens of dead on the tab of this cabal. This is Israel’s crew and nobody fucks with these guys.

    Ye Gawds, growing up in the 60′s, the WashPost was hideously anti-war. Look at them now.

    Hasbara Tactics

    By controlling information one can control people and the social networks. Hasbara volunteers help to police social networks for Israel. The big media are dealt with through BICOM and AIPAC, whilst the social media are policed unofficially by the Hasbara troll brigade. Priority is to stop influencers being compromised by anti-Israel sentiment.

    Troll techniques

    1. Turn up randomly asking question about Israel, trying to engage/educate.

    2. Guilt by association, they point to some source your are linked to as being anti-semitic or neo-nazi.

    3. Opportunity to redeem – the offer chance to recant from your naive ways.

    4. Smears and insults – if the top 3 fail then it’s just character assassination.

    5. Name bombing – using seo in blackhat ways to denounce and smear people. ie website with 37 mentions of someones name will prob get a Page one on Google.

    6. Hasbara trolls generally follow the rules of social networks, because they want to continue to influence people and subvert open and free debate.

    The Zionist Jews that control the US media are fully complicit in horrific war crimes and intentionally deceiving the American people. That fact is easily proven as they have been supporting the FSA, the White Helmets and other terrorist groups and ruses in Syria. These covert actions and propaganda campaigns have led to the slaughter of tens of thousands of innocent people. The entire Syrian war is being misreported in the US media. Israel and the US are on the same side with Saudi Arabia and are pumping billions of dollars to terrorist factions in the warzones. That fact is continually being covered up by the CIA infiltrated US mainstream media. The proof of such is here:

    There is no mystery here. Zilch. Culture follows itself, rather like a tree follows its life pattern.

    WASP culture was born from the Reformation.Specifically, it was born of Anglo-Saxon Puritanism, which was a Judaizing heresy. Judaizing heresy necessarily produces culture that is pro-Semitic. That is true of even the earliest WASPs. Thomas Cromwell allied with Jews, inviting them back into England, because that made sense according to the theology that drove him and the entire Puritan Revolution.

    By the beginning of the Victorian era, virtually 100% of the British Empire’s WASP Elites were rathr hardcore pro-Semitic. A majority of them were pro-Jewish, in a secular way that would have seemed wrong to ‘orthodox’ Puritans but actually was the inevitable child of that movement and its driving doctrines and passions. The rest of the pro-Semitic WASP Elites of the Victorian era were pro-Arabic and pro-Islamic (a few of those pro-Moslems were either pro-Iranian or pro-Turkish, but most were pro-Arabic).

    Out of that divide would come two things: the Balfour Declaration, and thus the eventual creation of the nation of Israel, and the Brits backing the House of Saud and thus necessarily Wahhabi Islam.

    The pro-Semitic nature of WASP (Elite) culture guaranteed – because nobody was powerful enough to stop WASP culture from creating them – both Israel and Saudi Arabia.

    And look what we have today: the successor to the British Empire, the USA, backing both Israel and Saudi Arabia as they do endless mischief, more than a bit of it evil.

    WASP culture created both Israel and the power of the Saudis. WASP cultural Elites are anything but innocent victims of Jewish and Saudi manipulations.

    I had emailed the following comment to a friend just a few hours ago. It seems germane, so I’m taking the liberty of just pasting it here, in the context of the Iran policy discussion :

    As you know I had high hopes of Trump, based mostly on my wishful thinking about his dog-whistles. Now I am mostly inclined to view him in terms appropriate to the sell-out to the Judaic world order detailed by Petras in his recent article on Who Rules America.

    The main serious person I know of who continues to harbour hopes about Trump’s hidden agenda is Mark Glenn of The Ugly Truth.

    I had shared with you my opinion that the anti-Iran bluster was just that, given that Russia is Iran’s strategic partner. But lately I concluded that it was probably just dangerous Judaic policy. A recent editorial essay in Rothschild’s Economist has given me pause. The article strongly opposes taking on the nuclear pact with Iran. So what are the mega-Jews concerned about? Maybe Trump intends to lever Iran into nuclear status. Their leadership says that’s what will happen. Trump, like Bannon with his absurd affirmations of allegiance to Judeo-Christian civilisation, might be loving the Jews to death. A nuclear armed Iran might very well be what humanity needs. And America as well. Just a thought.

    https://www.economist.com/news/leaders/21728896-it-right-worry-about-irans-growing-influence-trump-administration-may-be-about

    I know this will not convince you. That’s okay. It’s just a possibility. But keep it tucked away in a recess of your head for future reference.

    If Iran gives every indication of proceeding with nuclear arming, once the US leaves it no alternative, it would require a nuclear umbrella until such time as it could defend itself. That might come from Russian or Chinese nukes under the rubric of SCO. Like American nukes in Turkey and Germany, these could be put at the disposal of the Iranis without violating the Non-Proliferarion Treaty, or at least no more than the American nukes under foreign control do.

    When the Federal Reserve Bank of the United States, created in 1913 by Mr. Paul Warburg, a German Jew belonging to the Banking Firm of Kuhn, Loeb and Company, had been a few years in existence, in 1916 to be precise, President Woodrow Wilson thus summed up the situation in U.S.A.: “A great industrial nation is controlled by its system of credit. Our system of credit is concentrated. The growth of the nation, therefore, and all our activities are in the hands of a few men. . . We have come to be one of the worst ruled, one of the most completely controlled and dominated Governments in the civilized world—no longer a Government by conviction and the free vote of the majority, but a Government by the opinion and duress of small groups of dominant men.” From the similar testimonies quoted by Christopher Hollis in The Two Nations, let us take one. “Behind the ostensible government,” ran Roosevelt’s policy, ” sits enthroned an invisible government owning no allegiance and acknowledging no responsibility to the people.”

Isn’t that a clever sleight of hand? According to the pro-Israel (by extension jews) propaganda I’m required to care about, despite it having nothing to do with my life, my family’s life, my neighbors’ lives, and my community’s lives… Israel is that big of a deal. Actually, I hear more about Israel in the media than I hear about my home state of Michigan. Michigan is probably a lot more important to the US economy, US security, US tourism industry, Midwestern industrial technology industry, US engineering industry, and the Midwestern Farming economy, than Israel is. Then there are the people who live here, who are Americans. Israel first, then Americans? Okay, got it.

    If the public were exposed to as much emotionally captivating propaganda about Michigan as they were about Israel, I’d posit the public would see a far better investment in Michigan than they would in Israel. That includes an emotional investment.

    I don’t know what can be politely said or how it would shape up, but Midwesterners desperately need to understand the Israel (by extension jewish) problem. They’re bleeding us and getting away with it, all while getting away with incessantly calling us racists and anti-semites. Because again, caring about Michigan and its people first is just morally irreprehensible. Israel first, then Israel second, etc… Got it bigot? That sleight of hand, it’s just always there. I don’t fully grasp how this large scale agit-prop psychology works. I do understand jewish solidarity. I’ll hand it to jews, they have the strongest ethnic/religious/cultural solidarity I’ve ever seen.

These Jews will then be surrounded by implacable enemies who will sooner or later wipe them out. Throughout their history, Jews have had a fatal attraction to this kind of zealotry.

  92. Excellent article. In matters involving Israel, politically-active Jewish-Americans have a conflict of interest the size of Brooklyn. This conflict must be identified. And loudly.

    Since every Jew is automatically eligible for Israeli citizenship, these Diaspora Zionists should be sidelined from playing a decisive role in formulating US policies in the Middle East. This exclusion represents nothing more than common sense.

    Sadly, few writers, pundits or intellectuals dare to examine the poisonous consequences of this ongoing charade. Jewish privilege is has reached its zenith in American life. People are afraid.

    Zionists have successfully orchestrated a series of criminal, preemptive wars and invasions based on deliberate falsehoods and manufactured disinformation. These ongoing Jewish machinations go back to WWI, and earlier.

    Meanwhile, millions of lives have been destroyed. Trillions of dollars have been squandered. Today, Israel confiscates more and more territory, gets to keep its nuclear WMD, and quietly goes about expelling non-Jews from its ever-expanding territories. The Zionist state’s aggressive, race-based policies are totally at odds with everything America supposedly stands for. Yet they endure in plain view and with virtually no criticism. This is Jewish power.

    To sustain these glaring double-standards, political and cultural life in the US has been completely warped. Israel’s unique and perilous status requires it. Even Free Speech is being criminalized. And it’s all in order to preserve the special status of Washington’s most sacred cow.

    The time has come to unmask these mega-powerful crypto-Israelis and Zionist institutions for what they are: ruthless agents an unscrupulous global cabal.

    When examined objectively the power that one very small ethnic group wields in this country is frightening and a direct threat to constitutional democracy. Jews are a little over one percent of the population, yet individual Jews, almost all Zionist and anti-Christian, exercise overwhelming control of the entertainment and news industries. Similar individual Jews have a nearly overwhelming presence in higher education, the legal system, the financial sector. Until recently such Jews formed a majority of the Supreme Court. Jews like Adelson, Saban and many others wield overwhelming financial control of the political system in this country. Others have formed innumerable open and covert organizations to promote Jewish interests, e.g., Soros, Dees, et al. There is no Elders of Zion but that this country is now essentially run by people, all drawn from this minority of Zionist, anti-Christian Jews, drawn in turn from a very small Jewish minority should be of concern to any rational citizen, Jew or non-Jew.

Just how much Treason is the result of so-called “dual loyalty”?

    And isn’t Treason subject to some rather serious legal sanctions? Why aren’t we hanging Traitors instead of quietly flying them back to Israel or wherever?

    Ultimately the reason is that Jews are Holy objects to Christians. Christians worship Yeshua (a Jew) and his putative father-god YHWH. It really is that simple. America has enough Evangelicals alone to ensure the course never deviates and will fulfill their sacred prophesies. Jews run media? So what? Jews run RELIGION in America – both the communist bureaucratic State diversity cult as well as Christianity (Yeshuanity). It’s awfully hard to condemn Jews when one worships them.

    Ashkenazi Jews, and those are the ones we are mainly dealing with, are an endogamous caste of bankers, progressive journalists, lawyers, and social scientists (including, now, education), that have migrated all over Europe, but never identifying as European, with exceptions that prove the rule.
    As a tribe, once can read Kevin MacDonald’s work to see how they work in remarkable ethnic cohesion–not necessarily as an “organized conspiracy” (though that certainly happens), but as an ethnic drive.

    Outside of an almost symbolic launch of cruise missiles into Syria in April, how has Trump been a warmonger?

    You haven’t been paying attention. Since the initial strike in April, the Trump administration has deliberately attacked regime or allied forces an additional five times. (one, two, three, four, five).

    Including the Tomahawks in April, that’s a total of 6 deliberate attacks on the Syrian Arab Republic or its allies (so far), which is already 6 more than Obama carried out during his entire presidency. And it’s not like this is the end of Trump’s tenure, either; it’s the 9th goddamn month since he’s been in office. I’m sure the war hawks in Wahington are quite pleased with his progress, as they should be.

    In addition to all that, Trump has also cut off aid to the Syrian rebels. His Afghanistan policy /escalation is also symbolic.

    Anyone could tell by that point that Assad isn’t going to be overthrown. The aim now is to limit the Assad regime’s territorial gains as much as possible, and the “rebels” proved they were useless at doing that when Shia militia reached the Iraqi border at al-Tanf, and cut them off from reaching Deir ez-Zor back in May (which was what one of the attacks mentioned above was about).

    After that, the Trump administration put all its eggs in the “Syrian Democratic Forces/People’s Protection Units (SDF/YPG) basket, the mainly Kurdish (with some Arab fighters) militia that the US has been using to fight ISIS since 2015 (it’s also, ironically, a hard left socialist organization. Think Kurdish Antifa. Though I doubt Trump knows or cares or could do anything about it even if he did). Trump has given the SDF <a title=”"https://sputniknews.com/amp/middleeast/201709141057402885-america-weaponry-deir-ez-zor/&quot;https://sputniknews.com/amp/middleeast/201709141057402885-america-weaponry-deir-ez-zor/&quot;heavy weaponry with the aim of confronting Assad and limiting his territorial gains. They’ve also been pressuring the rebel groups they formerly supported to join the SDF.

    I have sympathy for the SDF/YPG and the Syrian Kurds, and it made sense to support them when they were under direct assault from ISIS (though US motives were hardly altruistic even then). But ISIS is all but beaten now, and this is a dangerous game the US is playing, which could readily lead to a military confrontation betweeen the US and Russia and/or Iran. In fact, just a few days ago, the SDF seized part of Deir ez-Zor after SAA forces reached the city, and the Pentagon is now accusing Russia (which has in the past at least had good relations with the SDF/YPG), of deliberately bombing SDF fighters, in close proximity to American special forces.

    US troops won’t be in direct combat and there will only be 15000 there anyway.

    Only 15,000! I guess you wouldn’t mind, then, if they Taliban, or the Afghan Army for that matter, or any other country, put 15,000 troops on American soil, as a “symbolic” gesture.

    Trump has also accelerated US collaboration in the sadistic torture of Yemen by the Saudis, past the levels under even Obama, which was already shameful.

    And again, we should also keep in mind that it’s only been 9 months. For his next act, Trump might be thinking about ending the Iran deal in October.

    Which certainly doesn’t mean there isn’t a particular problem, exactly as Giraldi describes it with plenty of sound supporting examples, of dual loyalty jews pushing wars that favour Israel.

    In fact, the reality is that Giraldi might be guilty of, at most, overstatement, but since a large part of the problem is precisely that any reference at all to the problem is suppressed, one might expect an honest opponent of the US’s military interventionism to temper his criticism of Giraldi’s piece appropriately. For whatever reason, instead, you seem to feel the need to hysterically accuse it as though it contains no truth whatsoever.

    What gives?

    Hostility toward Iran (and imperialism generally) is deeply rooted in the American foreign policy establishment (which isn’t close to being all or mostly Jewish), and can’t be explained by naive WASPs being manipulated by clever Jews.

    Of course, the Israel Lobby is much bigger than just jews, and stupid American Christians manipulated by their church leaders into believing fatuous ideas about Israel based upon dubiously interpreted biblical nonsense has historically provided a lot of its political clout.

    That’s another problem, but it doesn’t make the problem highlighted by Giraldi not a problem. The jewish individuals named by Giraldi still massively disproportionately dominate the foreign policy media and political debate on ME wars, and the wealthy jewish Israel supporters mentioned by him still massively disproportionately influence who gets heard and which opinions are suppressed and which promoted.

  130. I wonder where Mr. Giraldi would put David Horowitz on the list? Although Horowitz is not a public policy maker, but rather an author and blogger, but definitely is a known Jewish voice. I respect Horowitz tremendously because of his background as an ex-Communist and his dead-on criticism of the American Left, both historically and currently. Although rather knee-jerk in his defense of Israel, I would not doubt his loyalty to this country one iota. I do not know if David Horowitz is a dual Israeli-American citizen, but he is not a legislator nor a government policy maker, so as far as I am concerned, the issue is moot. If one questions the loyalty to America, of Jews or any other group for that matter, the issue of holding dual citizenship while holding certain government offices should be something of concern. Once out of public office or service, then they can resume their dual citizenship. It makes the issue of loyalty less questionable.

    The late Samuel Huntington said in his amazing book Clash of Civilizations and the Remaking of World Order that Saudi Arabia and Iran are fighting for supremacy in the Islamic world. Syria is a proxy war between the two countries. Now Israel has become BFF with Saudi Arabia because they too want a piece of Syria, for the oil reserve in the Golan Heights. So now US troops are suddenly bombing “ISIS” in Syria while supplying “rebels” with arms, even though by the CIA’s own admission most of the arms supplied have fallen into the hands of ISIS since the rebels joined forces with them.

    Make no mistake Jews and Arabs run this country. That is why Trump went to Israel and SA for his first foreign trip, he knows who America’s daddy is, even if most Americans are still in the dark. His entire administration is crawling with Israel loving Jews, starting with his son-in-law the most loyal son of Israel. Even Steve Bannon and Breitbart are crazy gung ho pro-Israel. Nikki Haley might as well be renamed Israel’s ambassador to the UN. Every time that daft woman opens her mouth the US is in danger of going to war with somebody, usually on behalf of Israel.

    When was the last time Iran conducted a jihad against the west? All the Muslim terrorists now attacking the west are Sunnis, funded by Saudi Arabia. The only time Iran had direct armed conflict with the US was when they kicked us out of Tehran, for trying to steal their oil. All their beef is with Israel, not with the US. Why are we taking up Israel’s cause? Trump is a moron of the first order and has no understanding of what really goes on in the mideast. He surrounds himself with pro-Israel neocons and Jews and is easily manipulated. He’s stupid and dangerous. I voted for him because he presented himself as someone completely different, someone anti-war and anti-immigration, now he’s a neocon globalist libtard, the worst of all worlds.

    Anyway, the American public has shown many times that it really doesn’t give a rat’s ass about foreigners being killed or maimed – not three of them, not three million of them. Foreigners might as well be bugs. What really matters is that feeling of power and superiority: their country is Top Nation and can whip anyone else, yes sir.

    True words sir!

    The evil empire sustains itself primarily through this attitude of its people. It does not matter how the Jews connive to shape it. Only thing that matters is that they buy into it without exercising their conscience.

    Americans, remember, such glory has a cost. You will find soon enough that a cancerous soul is too high a price to be “Top Nation,” for essentially a blink in cosmic time.

    “I’m glad they have the capability, if need be, to destroy the hostile military bases that encircle them“. There are no scenarios in which Iran could destroy US bases without changing the meaning of the word “suicidal”, is there?

    In the case of a defensive war with United States, there sure would be. At that point Iran would not have much hope but to inflict as much damage as possible on the aggressor. Although Iran does not nearly have the ability to fully reciprocate the harm the US can inflict on it, it hopefully has the capability to inflict enough damage so that an offensive war against it would be intolerable to the US. That’s how deterrence works.

    U.S. does not wish to go on an offensive mission against Iran.

    If that’s true, and I sincerely hope it is, it’s because Iran has sufficient deterrent capacity, which includes not only the anti-ship missiles in the Gulf, but also Hezbollah’s arsenal of ~130,000 short, medium and long-range rockets capable of reaching every square inch of Israeli territory.

    Once writers could safely assume their readers’ familiarity with the Bible. Hunter Thompson used the word “Selah” humorously(?) to mark points to which he thought his readers should pay particular attention. Selah is the English transliteration of a word, appearing in many of the Psalms, which seems to be an indicator of some kind of liturgical/performance action. Based on context it seems to assign an especial importance to the preceding verse or verses.

    In fact, the reality is that Giraldi might be guilty of, at most, overstatement, but since a large part of the problem is precisely that any reference at all to the problem is suppressed, one might expect an honest opponent of the US’s military interventionism to temper his criticism of Giraldi’s piece appropriately.

    “overstatement” the word, if applied, would be an understatement. As I wrote in #59, PG has been at it since at least 2005.

Jews are prominently represented in all areas which require cognitive leadership, but I won’t call it a preponderance. Calling it so would be inaccurate, if not wilfully mendacious.

    The United States, like all great powers, has in her history an unbroken record of wars preceding the rise of Neocons [not interchangeable with Jews]. That Jews in leadership positions have contributed to foreign policy [here in the U.S., as they did for various HMGs] is not in dispute; what is, is this infernal charge of a Jewish plan spanning millennia. You must’ve seen it here. No matter whether one subscribes to a reality-based worldview or otherwise, that charge, strips off agency from all others: a patently absurd position, which can only arise from Antisemitism.

The diaspora has been nothing but trouble for every country they’ve lived in for the past two thousand years. Even today many of these people simply cannot be loyal to whichever country they live in. Their loyalty is and always will be with their tribe. I said many because there are certainly exceptions. Not all Jews support Israel and many are as anti-war as they come.

    As millions of gentile youth went to Europe to fight Hitler and save their arses from the Nazis, the Jews overwhelming enrolled in colleges to avoid the draft. Once the war is over they’ve become the most well educated and were in perfect position to take over the media, academia, Wall Street, Hollywood, Capitol Hill, the judiciary, and now the latest conquest, Silicon Valley.

    Instead of some much needed introspection on why Hitler came to power, Jews hide behind the convenient label of “anti-semitism” and did everything they could to wrest power from the WASPs and actively bring the entire west to ruins through mass immigration, endless foreign wars and financial manipulation. But they’re getting a little ahead of themselves with this open borders madness. As Europe and America become more Muslim, it’ll also become more anti-semitic. In the end they might just be signing their own death warrant with what they promote.

    That’s false, in any discerning context.

    “White” implies a lack of detectable sub-saharan African and Arab genes if we are speaking about any tribe from Europe, the ME, or Africa. Racial Jews have both.

    The statement that “Jews are White” is not only false insofar as they are concerned, but is also an implication that other Whites can have African genes but remain as White as Whites without them.

    Jews are obsessed with outrunning their race-mixing shame, or in other words with outrunning the African gene, which is a large motivator behind their equality politics. They are essentially a race mixed tribe who couldn’t deal with:

    1. what they did in a race mixing context
    2. what they did as justification for further race mixing or extinction
    3. the spiritual (as per God’s biblical edicts) implications of their race mixing
    4. and the practical (HBD) ramifications of their race mixing.

    So, in essence, we have a tribe who has long resigned themselves to creating a world wherein there is no better tribe than their race mixed tribe, where their race mixed tribe is somehow looked upon as god’s tribe, and in which they survive as an inbred race mixed tribe.

    They can never outrun their gene, and will always be sore about that fact. Everytime that you see a “Jew Fro”, be reminded of their gene, what they claim about themselves, and their motivations.

    That god’s tribe is a race-mixed tribe is a ridiculous notion. God, as a concept, is both nature and a racial King (both concepts can be readily proven in historical religious studies – the “unknowable” god that Jews currently present to outsiders is a parallel to the mesopotamian AN, and other non-anthropomorphic sky god’s that always come into existence when a tribe wants to rule multiple other tribes and therefore needs to depart from the racial King concept).

    Most race mixed tribe’s would come to the conclusion that either continued race mixing or fading into the good night would be reasonable outcomes for them. However, with this tribe we have a refusal to concede to their past sin and thus a demand for all other pure tribes to be destroyed so that they may thrive and rule.

    Indeed, and the Iraq War occurred in 2003.

    Haaretz wrote in that year:

    In the course of the past year, a new belief has emerged in the town: the belief in war against Iraq. That ardent faith was disseminated by a small group of 25 or 30 neoconservatives, almost all of them Jewish, almost all of them intellectuals (a partial list: Richard Perle, Paul Wolfowitz, Douglas Feith, William Kristol, Eliot Abrams, Charles Krauthammer), people who are mutual friends and cultivate one another and are convinced that political ideas are a major driving force of history.

    That paragraph is not incorrect, even if it is not the full story.

    Jews are prominently represented in all areas which require cognitive leadership, but I won’t call it a preponderance. Calling it so would be inaccurate, if not wilfully mendacious.

    Can you not conceive that the undoubted “prominent representation” (at least) in the area of foreign policy, and the evident tilt of that foreign policy towards wars that appear to be in the interests of Israel (or at any rate the interests of Israel as they are seen by those prominent representatives), could create a justified concern in a reasonable opponent of US military interventionism that US policy in that area is being pushed in the wrong direction by a powerful group whose loyalties are at least conflicted?

    Can you not accept that dual loyalty could ever be a legitimate concern for those who don’t like the way US policy is pushed by the “prominent representation” you are prepared to admit to?

    Can you not accept that “dual loyalty” is a perfectly legitimate suspicion to raise against anyone with clear nationalist or religious ties to a foreign country?

    That Jews in leadership positions have contributed to foreign policy [here in the U.S., as they did for various HMGs] is not in dispute; what is, is this infernal charge of a Jewish plan spanning millennia. You must’ve seen it here.

I recall a Jewish editor friend who had been US correspondent for a major newspaper responding in 2003 to statements about the Jewishness of neo-cons noting that Rumsfeld and Cheney weren’t Jewish. I think it is hard to get away from groupthink (among Jewish neo-cons) as part of the disaster and that groupthink would include seeing no difference between US and Israeli interests in what it took, in missionary spirit, to sort out the undemocratic ME. Think of the way Australians and New Zealanders lined up to fight for the British Empire from the Boer War (and earlier) to WW2. Not exactly analagous but near enough.

    I don’t understand the Trump opposition to the Iran deal. Do you?

    Wars tend to advance military careers so it is a bit worrying that Trump seems to love generals in such an unbalanced way.

    PG may ne a bit overboard in his suggestion (if I rightly infer it) that the neocons who seized the opportunity after 9/11 to grab the agenda for their own uniquely thought out agenda did so for Israel rather than America but is it possible to ignore the less highminded control of US politicians by AIPAC and similar lobby groups supported ny the money of people like Sheldon Adeldon?

    Ignoring what we could say about your religion’s weirdness, and how easily Christian symbolism is explained, your “monotheism” is nothing to be proud of and especially in this comments section.

    Monotheism is an analogy for World government. All relatively modern (within the past 5000 years or so for civilized tribes) concepts of god are analogies for Kingship or rulership.

    God began from the concept of the tribal hero or leader, who evolved into an ethnic King either in reality or later myth, and then we had deified ancestor Kings as gods.

    Later, when tribes had the opportunity to spread empire and rule other tribes, the deified ancestor king concept was unhitched from its tribal roots and the non-anthropomorphic and unknowable “sky god” was imagined so that the different tribes could believe in the same god without ethnic conflict. This much is even well explained on Wikipedia, if you know where to read.

    Your god is fake, and not even legitimate insofar as religious anthropology is concerned. Most deifiied ancestor kings turned sky god would still have a racial connotation. Your sky god supposedly is one that originated from a mixed race tribe, which is laughable if there is supposed to be any notion of true spirituality linked to your god. That original spirituality, apart from any political imperialism, being inextricably linked to racial Kings, Heroes, and ancestors.

    It doesn’t matter how much “weird” Kabbalah you invent to place yourselves at the foot of your World King, this phantasm is just that. Most people take medication for schizophrenia.

    I can see ancestor veneration as a form of spirituality, because there are at least genes connecting the prayerful person to the deceased. But to worship a politically invented “unknowable” being in the hope that the world will do the same has to be a form of mental illness. If not mental illness, then its pure imperialism.

    Last, let’s get real. You don’t actually worship a god, but the Sabbath; which is the result of your hopes for world imperialism that will have the rest of the world working while you do not. A master-slave relationship, yes?

    Now if you could only get gentiles to always at least carry something in their pockets on Saturdays to represent work and so the Sabbath is not desecrated, while you wait for every Jew to eschew work two Saturdays in a row to mark the arrival of your world empire.

    You may be tempted to make the point that not all Jews believe in the political program, which I would then retort with pointing out that in fact Kristol does. He’s as politically Jewish as it comes.

    I’d relent to your point for Jews who denounce Judaism. No others.

    Well, Orthodox Judaism does have a political program in the sense that it desires the resurrection of the Davidic monarchy in Palestine in the post-Messianic age. But that won’t be for some time, I’m told, and besides, the most hardcore Orthodox Jews tend not to be Zionists, which is what you seem to be primarily worried about.

    Yet, in a classic, paradox-tinged pro-Israel loop-back, the ‘alt-Right’ and ‘white nationalist’ movement, is increasing positive links with security-fence-building, also-ethnic-nationalist Israel

    Steve Bannon and his supposed alt-right rag Breitbart are incredibly pro-Israel. I supposed it has something to do with its founder Andrew Breitbart being a Jew. Every time Trump or Nikki Haley says something nasty about Iran, you’ll get plenty of Breitbart commenters echoing their sentiment egging them on, you can tell by their inane comments many have no idea why they should hate Iran, other than Breitbart told them to. They’ve fully bought into the Breitbart narrative that Iran is evil and must be destroyed.

    You might also have pointed out unkindly his failure in basic logic as exemplified by the reference to Noam Chomsky as if PG eere saying that all Jews agreed.

    “America’s Jews” reads, to me, like it refers to all Jews in America. At the very least, using the phrase indicates that one tends to see the differences among such a large group of people as unimportant enough to justify viewing them as a monolith rather than a diverse group of human beings who display wide variation in beliefs and behavior. I’d call that bigotry. If Giraldi would like to clarify, he’s free to do so.

    Still, it would be good to know where Trump’s anti-Iran views come from.

    It probably comes in part from a bigoted view of Islam and Muslims, one that collapses even such coarse-grained distinctions as the Sunni-Shia split, which makes him incapable of recognizing that the threat from “radical Islamic terror” comes overwhelmingly from Sunni jihadists, and essentially not at all from Shia. Resentment over the 1979 hostage crisis probably also plays a role. He no doubt remembers it, as it was on TV at the time quite a bit.

    As for why Iran is so hated among other influential actors, the fact that it is an independent country that sits on a large amount of oil is no doubt the predominant factor. Veteran military and intelligence guys are no doubt still seething over losing such an important American ally as the Shah (same reason they hated Castro so much). The memory of the hostage crisis exacerbates this, as it probably does with Trump himself. And yes, the fact that Iran supplies Hezbollah, the major deterrent to Israeli aggression and colonialism, plays a role as well.

    Claiming that “America’s Jews are Driving America’s Wars” is not, because (a) it isn’t true

    Clearly it is true, as Giraldi has demonstrated it by naming high profile and highly influential individuals involved in the driving, and you have not effectively contested his point. All you have done is point to other issues that you feel are more important in that driving. That’s fine as far as it goes, but it isn’t a refutation.

    , (b) it’s bigoted,

    Again, this is your ideological dogma speaking and it has no relation to reality. Declaring it as “bigoted” merely because it offends your antiracist ideology is particularly absurd since Giraldi has adduced evidence to support his case whereas you have merely declared it anathema on principle. You should ponder who is the bigot here (clue – it isn’t Giraldi).

    (c) it makes you look cranky and turns a lot of people off.

    Again, you merely kowtow to the taboo that is one of the strongest weapons in the US militarist armoury. Taboos (political ones that are imposed in order to protect elites and their dogmas from attack) should be smashed, not meekly worshipped.

    Proposing to label people on TV by ethnicity (Kristol isn’t repellent because he’s Jewish) is similarly obnoxious.

    The proposal (tongue in cheek, of course, because of the inherent absurdity of expecting the US media of all groups to do any such thing) is to highlight the potential nationalist bias of a supposed expert on foreign policy who is presumably expounding the supposed benefits of a policy that just happens to benefit (as they see it) the country they feel loyalty to. Doesn’t seem particularly unreasonable when you put it that way.

    A colonial ideology like “R2P” isn’t an example of solidarity and internationalism anymore than its 19th century predecessors like “The White Man’s Burden” were.

    Just like all those “drawbacks” of communist regimes around the world didn’t justify criticism of communism, because they “weren’t real communism”. I’m afraid R2P and “humanitarian” intervention are absolutely the very essence of “internationalism” and “solidarity”. You just don’t want to admit it because it calls your faith into question.

    It’s the dominant problem (or one of them). That ought to force a shift in priorities.

    That’s your opinion. I think the quote from Haaretz linked in post 21 above better reflects the reality of the invasion of Iraq, at least – probably the single worst (most costly and most egregiously illegal and immoral) example of military interventionism in recent years:

    The war in Iraq was conceived by 25 neoconservative intellectuals, most of them Jewish, who are pushing President Bush to change the course of history.

    But presumably Haaretz’s writer was just another unhinged bigot, in your view.

    The “messianic age” is a political program that the resurrection of the Davidic Monarchy is a part of. Getting the world to that Messianic time comprises the political actions to which I was referring.

    There are so many varieties of Orthodox Jew, even “hardcore variety”, that it is impossible to make such sweeping statements. However, if a statement were to be made, I can tell you from lengthy first hand intimate experience that the majority are not anit-Zionist unless you are using anti-Zionism as a qualification for “hardcore”.

    If that’s the case, then most Orthodox Jews are not “hardcore”. But you could fool me, because everything that they do in life is directed and defined by their Judaism, from clothing, to food, to Shabbos, to dating and marriage, to education, etc.

    It comes from holding US embassy staff hostage for 400+ days in Tehran.

    Iranians had every right to expel the Embassy staff, but Iranian leadership screwed up big time by allowing the hot headed students to take and hold Americans hostage that long. The hurt was compounded by the failed rescue attempt disaster.

    Americans are non-vindictive and quite generous when victorious (e.g. Germany and Japan), but don’t take defeat and humiliation very well (e.g. Viet Nam).

    Of course Americans, including Trump, only remember what was done to Americans, but conveniently forget that US&UK started it all when they overthrew the democratically elected Mosaddegh in 1953, installed the unelected Shah, trained SAVAK to torture Iranians for decades,…..and the rest is history, as they say.

    Nevertheless, even though they were the wronged party, Iranian should have sent the entire embassy staff to the airport first day, swept the embassy for anything useful, then raise it to the ground. Sort of like what they did to the two US patrol boats that ‘accidentally’ invaded Iranian territorial waters. The US sailors were treated well, were fed, then quickly released. Incident closed.

    Good point – missed that one. Disappointing to have done so, since it’s such a common feature of the spurious antiracist critique.

    Still, it would be good to know where Trump’s anti-Iran views come from.

    Do normal American views in an American Presidential candidate particularly require explaining? In Trump’s case they go back to before his candidacy, so it’s not just a result of the preponderance of anti-Iranian zealots around him now.

    As for how all the obsessively dishonest and irrational nonsense about Iran came to be mainstream in the US, I have in the past suggested the following as explaining the situation:

    1. Undue political and media influence from Iran’s regional rivals, Israel and Saudi Arabia, whose interests a paranoid US fear of Iran clearly serves;

    2. Lingering soreness about the US getting some much-deserved payback from Iranians at the time of the hostage crisis, for decades of bloody interference in Iranian affairs;

    3. Simple outrage at the sight of a medium sized developing country daring not to breathlessly ask “how high, sir?”, when told to jump by Washington.

    [To 2 can be added soreness about other occasions when the US has received some kickback against its own military aggression from Iran or Iran's allies, such as Lebanon, Iraq and most recently Syria.]

    Also, one can look for people in Trump’s family and close associates who are members of or have affiliations to the groups that have the strongest reasons to badmouth Iran – Israelis, jews who identify as pro-Israel, Saudis, sunni muslims in general.

    I don’t think there’s any great mystery there.

  200. Giraldi is correct. There must be a situation whereby those with a personal [pro or con] relationship with any foreign country be recused from holding any policy position. Even those elected to serve in the Congress and vote for disbursement of taxes for any foreign country with which there is a family or ethnic relationship shall not be qualified to vote. Tax dollars must be objectively voted for the benefit of the interests of the U.S. This does not restrict first amendment rights or the selection of those elected. These restrictions shall apply to every U.S. citizen regardless of race or religion. U.S. tax dollars are currently awarded on the basis of those receiving campaign contributions which contributes to corruption. Furthermore, it denies U.S. citizens benefits from their own taxes.

    The entire news media is corrupt as well as Hollywood. Moreover, citizens must begin to sue in Federal courts when they can prove that a group, such as AIPAC or the ADL, is seeking punishment or actually instigated punishment because a U.S. citizen has exercised the right to freely object to serving the interests of any particular foreign country. If it is lawful and within our constitutional rights to criticize our own country, it is indeed lawful to criticize any country on this earth, Israel included!

    That paragraph is not incorrect, even if it is not the full story.

    I said as much. Krauthammer & Co were instrumental, but they were hardly the lead pieces in the orchestra.

    Can you not conceive that the undoubted “prominent representation” (at least) in the area of foreign policy, and the evident tilt of that foreign policy towards wars that appear to be in the interests of Israel (or at any rate the interests of Israel as they are seen by those prominent representatives), could create a justified concern in a reasonable opponent of US military interventionism that US policy in that area is being pushed in the wrong direction by a powerful group whose loyalties are at least conflicted?

    I can conceive it and indeed concede it, that Kristol & Co were influential. A president’s policy is ultimately his own and various interests always seek to align themselves with it, perhaps gaining in other sundry concerns. But the recent wars had many promoters, GWB, Cheney, Rumsfeld, Powell, Rice to name a few. I am deeply sceptical of the notion that these wars were conceived on Israel’s behalf. I am further amused, if not troubled, by this idea that Jews in this country are steadfast in their support of Israel as a monolithic bloc. You’d be hard-pressed to find a group more given to argument and disagreement. But, as in Britain, to call into question loyalties of U.S. Jews, would be to give succour to a favourite falsehood of the fringe. American Jews no more support the state of Israel than do the gentile citizenry.

    I do not mean to say that all U.S. wars were the fruit of clear-headed thinking, indeed some weren’t, but I am yet to be presented with a roster of such, waged by other great powers, never in question, never in fault nor folly.

    Indeed, but that has nothing whatsoever to do with the case Giraldi makes here, except to the extent that you speculate that it is motivation for presenting it.

    Quite so in the case of this particular piece. And I meant more the commentaries which inevitably call as home, Giraldi’s corner.

    Further, I must say the lines demarcating his various articles do get blurred in my view, each vying to outdo the previous in its single-minded reviling of a certain group. In those articles, should you feel disposed to search, you will find that infernal idea of which I speak.

    Our Christian god is hopeful and merciful seeking peace for all of humanity. The Jew god favors one tribe. The Christian god is moving humanity to peace – the Jew god to division, hate, chaos and war.

    The Jew god exhibits himself in Israel. He champions apartheid, summery killing, torture, detention without trial, squatting, gross unfair internal wars against defenseless people, and endless waring attacks on its neighbors. “By deception it makes war.”

Who do you think is more likely to be driving the push behind war?

    The top brass of the U.S. military is one of the prime factors behind confrontation with not only Iran, but Russia (even more dangerously). These guys have been prepping for the Big One since their days at West Point. And as anti-Semites love pointing out, the number of Jews in the military (and especially the top ranks) is negligible.

    Why is the Trump administration and Congress about to sell heavy weaponry to the junta in Ukraine, that has ties to anti-Semitic nationalists? Who is the more anti-Jewish party in that conflict, Ukraine or Russia? Putin has good relations with Israel and with Jewish (and non-Jewish) Russian oligarchs. If the Jews back Ukraine over Russia, they must be stupid. How is it then that they have so much influence?

    For what it is worth – Trump would do what is necessary to get rid of ISIS – but that he is not interest in more big wars.

    Trump is a builder of buildings – it is not in his DNA to destroy things.

    I am a Christian and therefor I am hopeful. I was hopeful then and I am hopeful now. No question but that Trump is negatively influenced by his Jew connections. He very well may stupidly kill the Iran nuke treaty, but that does not mean war. Until NKorea is settled, no war is going to happen with Iran.

    Yes – you Jews are running things – but right into the ground. What craziness and chaos that is going on in today’s American culture is on YOU JEWS – you broke it – you own it!

    Very interesting film and commentary.

    In fact, there are Orthodox who firmly support the state of Israel, including Orthodox who have immigrated to Israel.

    One comment that Rabbi Shapiro made was that the Israeli military didn’t need or want the Orthodox Yeshiva students. If true, the question or drafting Yeshiva students becomes a matter of internal Israeli policy, to be determined by the political process in Israel. If so, what can the effect of a rally in New York, USA be? Are the Orthodox trying to influence US pressure on Israel? Why should the government of Israel listen to New York Orthodox at all?

    As far as the internal politics of Israel, many of the people on this thread see Israel as the racist aggressor in the Middle East, pressuring the US to cause chaos and destruction in the area.

    I’m an American Firster, but I do support the existence of Israel. I think it’s the responsibility of Israel, and not the US to maintain the existence of Israel. I fully support the commenter who wanted to do away with dual ciizenship. A citizen can have only one primary loyalty. This extends to dual citizenship with Israel, Mexico, Iran, or Hungary (though I have much sympathy with Hungarian citizens).

    The government of Israel wants the character of Israel to be Jewish (although Rabbi Shapiro would argue, not TOO Jewish. That’s an internal Israeli affair, on which I wish to have no influence. In my opinion, any state that wishes to maintain its existence will have to pursue policies that could be termed as racist. Like, the US totally excluding Muslims from further immigration. Racist perhaps, and totally necessary. But, the US should not become involved in the internal affairs of other countries. And yes, that means stopping US foreign aid to Israel.

    As far as the 2003 attack on Iraq being a result of Jewish dual loyalists: it’s possible. But, if so, let me point out that whatever influence the Jewish neocons had on the Iraqi attack was the stupidest ever. In fact, Jewish popular opinion tends, in my opinion, to be extremely stupid and self-destructive. In 2003, there were at least two states in the Middle East very hostile to Israel: Iraq and Iran. Who was the biggest enemy of Iran: Iraq. So, was taking out Iraq as a country helpful to Israel? Now, Iran is no longer facing Iraq, which had the population, and is only facing Saudi Arabia, which has only money and mercenaries. Was Israel a net beneficiary? So, if the neocons were acting out of Israel’s interest and not the US’s, they were being extremely stupid. I do consider neocons to be stupid, but that’s the point.

    Looking at Jewish US popular opinion, Jews voted 70% for Obama and almost the same proportion for Hillary in 2016. Is it in the interest of US Jews to bring in more Muslims? More Muslims in Sweden and France have made parts of those countries unbearable for the Jews, who favored the open border policies. If you look on the websites of Jewish organizations in the US, you’ll see almost universal horror at the very mild travel exclusions of the Trump Presidency. Whatever Jewish influence there is, runs directly counter to the real interests of Jewish US citizens.

    Someone mentioned that Israel itself is instituting ideological tests for aliya, or Jewish immigration to Israel. I think this is a sensible policy for Israel. If Israel wishes to maintain its character, the immigrants should reflect the ideological and cultural identity of the current population. But, I wish to make that an internal policy of Israel through, at a minimum, ceasing foreign aid to Israel and doing away with dual citizenship.

  244. Israelis, and American Zionists and their lackeys, push for a war against Iran because they think they can win cheaply. This is what they thought about Iraq, Lebanon, and Syria. They think they can engineer this without fatal damage against both Israel and the AngloZionist Empire. Despite what McMaster and Mattis may say for political consumption and to keep their jobs, they know that as a military mission this is impossible for the US in 2017. Any preemptive strike will ignite a general war in the Mideast, with the real possibility of drawing in Russia and China, in a nuclear exchange. The former US and Israel will have no other allies. The fighting could easily lead to
    the Israelis’ deploying the Samson Option – self-immolation; it is ringed with 100,000 Hezbollah rockets. The former US would confront an economic crisis it cannot print its way out of, and ignition of war will provide the impetus for the breakup both of the Zionist State – what radioactive remnant there is left – and the former US, by no means assured of
    preventing major military and economic damage to the Heimat.

    Hubris. Chosen. The Exceptional Nation. God and Karma are just. If they ignite a war, they will
    get what they deserve; if they do not, they will also get what they deserve.

  245. Why do literate people keep using this term that the Jews of the media have inflicted upon the discussion? This use of the word “Semite” or “Semitic” as a substitute for saying “Jewish” is just plain silly. The vast majority of the world’s Semites are Arabs, just as Arabic is by far the most important Semitic language. They use this euphemism, because as secular Jews they do not want to suggest they they are religious Jews.

    I took the Israeli Ulpan program once in Jerusalem, the three-month intensive Hebrew language course. In that class there were around 20 adult immigrants to Israel, and of that group there were three of us who claimed to believe in God. Most of the class were Russian or Ukrainian immigrants, secular Jews who had lost their place in the Communist government, so they moved to Israel. Every day one of them would say “I don’t believe in God at all. Judaism is my race.” Then all the others would shake their heads in agreement. This is what being a secular Jew is all about: atheists who still think they are Jews on the basis of race.

    In the middle of the first millennium AD there was a tribal chief in Central Asia who converted to Judaism, and he brought in Jewish scholars to teach his people. These Kazars became Jews, and these people with very very few Semitic, Middle Eastern genes make up the majority of the European, Ashkanazi Jews. It should be pretty obvious that these people have few ancestors indeed who can trace their families back to the Levant, and gene studies bear this out. So, calling these people Semites is just plain ridiculous; nor does it make sense to call someone an anti-Semite just because he denies that European secular Jews have a right to go take over land that has been occupied by Muslims and Christian Arabs for the last thousand years. This is, like so much else in our media world, is a scam enabled by gentile ignorance.

    If we disregard a bit of “semantic play” and undercurrent of, say, certain attitude in the question, it’s legit.

    So, it is incorrect.
    Wrong (I guess in moral sense) doesn’t apply in geopolitics.

    Then towards Mexico.
    Then, having some “empty” space within, West.
    Hawaii.
    Then Cuba….Philippines….and the rest till today.

    Constant………growth.

    It’s easy to even mark it: just follow the builds of US military bases.

    Collapse of Soviet Union simply gave the same idea just a new, fresh impetus.

    So, blaming Jews for Canada 1812 is just ridiculous.
    And from then on it’s simply the same game.

    I just believe that a good regional war is necessity for US national interest.

    Not only “elites”, but everyone in US (and loyal satellites and vassals).
    That’s how it’s been since US got conceived.

    I mean, everyone except Trump supporters want war.
    And what do Trump supporters want: make America great…..again.
    If I got all that right, they want, what, US from late 50′s?
    Wasn’t that a direct result from being a winner, without internal destruction, of WW2?

    So……

    It must be a war, IMHO, somewhere, to keep the same system going on.

    Now, if we don’t want the war, well, really, we’d want to change the system.

    I am deeply sceptical of the notion that these wars were conceived on Israel’s behalf.

    Opening paragraph of Chapter 1 of Stephen Sniegoski’s The Transparent Cabal:

    THERE IS A GROWING realization that the U.S. war against Iraq and American Middle East policy in general has been disastrous to American interests. In the words of A. Richard Norton, professor of international relations at Boston University, who served as an adviser to the James Baker-led Iraq Study Group, “Surveying U.S. history, one is hard-pressed to find presidential decisions as monumentally ill-informed and counterproductive as the decision to invade and occupy Iraq; however, a decision to go to war against Iran would arguably surpass the Iraq war as the worst foreign-policy decision ever made by an American president.” The unnecessary American war against Iraq has not only killed and wounded thousands of Americans and hundreds of thousands of Iraqis, but has also actually increased the terrorist threat to the United States. An American attack on Iran would compound this damage geometrically, bringing about a major conflagration in the heart of the oil-producing region of the Middle East that would reverberate throughout the entire world. This disaster is highly likely unless the United States completely eschews all elements of the Middle East war policy.

    How did the United States come to formulate this colossally erroneous policy? This is not simply a question of significance to those who study history; it is of vital importance to everyone alive today. For it is only by understanding the origins of and motivation behind the current policy that we may establish the proper alternative policy, to extricate the United States from the existing quagmire and bring about the best settlement now possible. This work examines a controversial and in some respects taboo subject: the close relationship of the American neoconservatives with the Israeli Likudnik right, and their role as the fundamental drivers of the Bush administration’s militant American policy in the Middle East —a policy which inspired both the 2003 war in Iraq and the equally militant solutions contemplated since for other Middle East policy problems. It marshals evidence to illustrate that the war in Iraq (a foreign-policy blunder of colossal proportions, considered from the perspective of the American national interest) and the policy that inspired it and continues to inspire our approach to other actors and issues in the Middle East, have their common origin in the orientation of the neoconservative policy towards service of the interests of Israel. This orientation is at the root of the explanation for why our policy does not seem to address or correspond with the genuine security needs of the United States. Such an understanding does not mean that the neoconservatives necessarily or consciously sought to aid Israel at the expense of the United States, but rather that they have seen American foreign policy through the lens of Israeli interest. Ideology and personal ties have blinded them to what most others clearly see as the foreign policy reality.

  280. Sparkon says:

    No dual citizen should be allowed to serve in any official capacity at the federal, state, or local level in these United States of America.

    In December, 1956 — just six months before his untimely death at age 48 — Sen. Joseph R. McCarthy gave a speech “George Washington’s Surrender” in which he recounted British Gen. Cornwallis’s warning to Gen. Washington, that, despite its victory at Yorktown, the United States would become the British Crown’s poodle on the leash of Judaized Christianity.

    [MORE]

    “The confession of General Cornwallis to General Washington at Yorktown has been well hidden by historians.

    “Jonathan Williams recorded in his LEGIONS OF SATAN, 1781, that Cornwallis revealed to Washington that

    “A holy war will now begin on America, and when it is ended America will be supposedly the citadel of freedom, but her millions will unknowingly be loyal subjects to the Crown.”
    [...]
    “Your churches will be used to teach the Jew’s religion and in less than two hundred years the whole nation will be working for divine world government. That government that they believe to be divine will be the British Empire. All religions will be permeated with Judaism without even being noticed by the masses, and they will all be under the invisible all-seeing eye of the Grand Architect of Freemasonry.”

    And indeed George Washington himself was a Mason, and he gave back through a false religion what he had won with his army.”

    “Cornwallis well knew that his military defeat was only the beginning of world catastrophe that would be universal and that unrest would continue until mind control could be accomplished through a false religion. What he predicted has come to pass.
    [...]
    We are aliens in our own country because of false religion. All are praying for divine deliverance into that “Divine Government” which Cornwallis knew to be the British Empire. A false religion has been used to deceive us into allegiance to our enemies of Yorktown and Bunker Hill. No! Not a gun has been fired but the invisible and malignant process of conquering America with the Jew’s religion has gone on unabated.
    [...]
    Once man gives over to false religion, he is no longer rational because he originates no thought. His life is controlled by whomever controls his religion.”

    We have to put these “Jews” someplace. Today’s Jews are not related to the Jews of Jesus’ time. It’s the RCC and Zioevangizers who give them their status. The priesthood ended when the temple was destroyed. They want to rebuild the temple, but that will never happen. Julian the Apostate tried that. What would happen today is another earthquake. If these “Jews” want to practice the Old Testament ways let them and we must send the Jews in the West to Israel.

    I know the Bible said they were to be disbursed but those original Jews are gone. Today’s “Judaism” is a mishmash of the Kabbala and the Talmud. Nothing to do with the Old Testament. Let these strange people do their own thing.

    Christian Zionism did not start until the late 19th century publication of the Scofield bible.

    Catholic and Orthodox are NOT Zionist.

    In fact, please take a read of the Civilta Cattolica article I posted above and you will see that the church is intimately connected to resusting jewish power, as jewish power leads eventually to the rise of the antichrist.

    Also, search for John Chrysostom ‘Against the Jews’ to understand how Christianity and the Jews are absolutely opposites.

    Christian Zionism will likely morph into the religion of the antichrist, becoming THE most deadly heresy.

    Concerning gratitude towards the peoples who shelter them, the Israelites regard themselves as absolved, since they believe them to be usurpers. Just to the contrary, they use every sort of means in order to gain supremacy over them, of which they believe to have been assured by the Old Testament. The time they pass within the bosom of other people is for them, so to speak, a time of penance, punishment and exile; and the inhabitants of the countries harboring them pass for enemies which, as soon as the promised hour of universal Jewish dominion over the world will have come, are to be subjugated.

Breitbart News, posing as part of the alt-Right, has thus repolarized audiences that were increasingly seeing through the bipartisan control that corporate-financial special interests hold over Western society. The frequent reference to Breitbart as alt-Right by the mainstream media closes the circle of deception: the MSM audience is left in no doubt that Breitbart is beyond the pale and can be safely ignored, while Breitbart’s immense crowd of dupes, reassured that they form part of a breakaway movement, remain trapped in their silo.

It is a loosely-guarded secret that Jewish Zionists made deals with the German government to make life difficult for German Jews, in order to help populate what was then known as Palestine. As Jews were the “cream of German society”, who could blame them for not wanting to leave?
    As to the “death camps”, there was no such thing. These “camps” were recreated by the soviets after WW2 as propaganda pieces. That famous holohoax (oops, I mean “holocaust ™”) showplace, Auschwitz has a chimney not connected to anything, poor design of the so-called “gas chambers” which would have resulted in the deaths of the operators, and doors that swing “the wrong way” making it impossible to retrieve the bodies. In fact, claims about the efficiency of the crematoria (thousands of bodies totally cremated per day) cannot be duplicated today, even with today’s technology.
    As to the true nature of the “camps”, they were work camps, complete with housing, dining facilities, medical and dental facilities, and a wealth of recreational facilities. Now, if these “camps” were “death camps”, why all the ancillary facilities? It would have been easier to dispatch the enemies in place, rather than using Germany’s energy-poor rail and other transportation systems.

    Hey RobinG,

    Abu Sa’id al-Khudri (ra) was a Companion (ra) of the Prophet (pbuh). The hadith you are referring to is basically a reiteration of a verse of Qur’an that denounces some Jews for claiming “Uzayr” is the son of God. There honestly aren’t a whole lot of details in the authentic sources and I have read various explanations by the scholars. The one that makes the most sense to me is that there was a (now-extinct) heretical group living among the Jews in the Hijaz that had developed due to isolation from major Jewish learning centers and being surrounded by pagans – only God knows, barring any discovery of major new evidence on the matter.

    Probably the most comprehensive write-up (at least in English) that I have come across is the one from Prof. Jonathan Brown:

    http://almadinainstitute.org/blog/the-quran-the-jews-and-ezra-as-the-son-of-god/

    As far as Ezra (assuming this “Uzayr” in the Qur’an is referring to him), he was a major Jewish priest in the time after the Babylonian Exile:

It was well known that they were enamored of their handsome, tall, blonde Nazi captors, and were in no small measure willing to abase themselves in every way possible to endear themselves to the guards and Kommandant.

    The services they offered went from ratting out their fellow Jews to the guards- to offering lewd favors for those guards who’d deign to accept them. So yes, the vulgar description at the top of this post is on occasion apropos, and I can’t help but see Paul Ryan as one of these modern day kapos, willing to do anything, no matter how abased, to please his masters. It’s just that now the roles are somewhat reversed, and Sheldon Adelson is playing the part of Nazi Kommandant, and Paul Ryan is the homosexual kapo willing and eager to perform depraved favors to earn Sheldon’s approval, while betraying his own people for a few privileges.

    Bill presided over the holocaust in Waco, where the people he was responsible for protecting from harm were burned alive by his goons, including the children. Do you think such a man cares about the American people?! Hell no he doesn’t, that’s why ((they)) chose him.

    Did Dubya care about the people in NYC on 9/11? Or the tens of thousands of Americans who either died or were maimed in his wars? Did you see him joking about the missing WMD?

    all Western politicians of any consequence today are selected because they’re willing to betray their people and their nations for personal gain. If the Fiend told Merkel to start a war with Russia, and she had the wherewithal to make it happen, do you think that sow would hesitate for a second?

    IOW it isn’t the stick that motivates these people, but the proverbial carrot.

    it isn’t fear of their nations being destroyed that motivates today’s Western politicians, but rather the perks and privileges (in a word; power) that these politicians enjoy that makes them willing to betray their people and nations to the tender mercies of the Fiend.

    one of the best characterizations for today’s Western politicians is that hunchback from the movie 300. He didn’t betray his people out of fear of death or even suffering, but rather so he could enjoy sexual favors and decadent privileges.

    That is why Merkel is betraying and destroying Germany. That is why John McCain and Paul Ryan are destroying their nations and condemning so many innocents to die in contrived wars.

    so they can personally be lavished with more perks

    I wish you were right, and it was out of fear of nuclear annihilation that they betray their people. That would be more palatable than seeing them betray their nations and people for a dalliance here and a liaison there.

    Don’t EVER underestimate just how strong is the support of most American Jews for Israel. I have never seen this support go much below 83% even when Israel’s behavior towards it neighbors was at its most barbarous stages such as during its numerous and murderous forays into Lebanon or Gaza over the years.

    http://www.jpost.com/Jewish-World/Jewish-News/US-Jews-strongly-support-Israel-new-poll-shows

    This support hasn’t manage to go much below this 83% figure even when it has became increasingly evident that it was Israel that had pushed for the US’s numerous interventions in the Mideast. Even recent, increasing evidence that Israel has supplied much or most of the support for the ISIL rebel movement in Syria seems to have not budged this figure either. These people are real “true believers’ and their support for Israel continues irregardless of how outrageous Israel’s behavior becomes.

    But history simply repeats itself. This strong support for Israel resembles just how American Jews continued to strongly support Stalin well into the early 1950s even though news of mass genocides in the USSR in places like the Ukraine had started to became apparent as far back as the early and mid 1930s. Jews then, as now, simply ignored the the evidence (the message) but made absolutely sure to harshly punish the messengers.

    This article, for instance, on the Ukrainian genocide of 1932-1933 (AKA The Holomador) not only got Malcolm Muggeridge, who had actually visited the Ukraine when this genocide was occurring, fired as a reporter from the Manchester Guardian Newspaper but also blacklisted for almost two decades (or more) afterwards.

    http://www.garethjones.org/soviet_articles/soviet_and_the_peasantry_2.htm)

    The NY Times NEVER forgave him for contradicting its shill, the infamous (and Pulitzer Prize winning) Walter Duranty.

    After all, it was only gentiles who were the ones being murdered and we all know that it is only considered genocide when Jews are the ones dying.

    The French author and philosopher Voltaire, who had supplied the intellectual firepower behind the most important parts of our own Bill of Rights (freedom of religion, freedom of speech) said it very presciently over two hundred years ago that:

    “They (Jews) are, all of them, born with raging fanaticism in their hearts, just as the Bretons and the Germans are born with blond hair. I would not be in the least bit surprised if these people would not some day become deadly to the human race…”

    Miller received a liberal education typical of other American Jews, but adopted a more conservative perspective in high school. As a student at Duke University, Miller became active in David Horowitz’s conservative Freedom Center think tank and began to fight the silencing of conservative viewpoints.

    In January 2016, he joined Trump’s election campaign. Later the same year, he was chosen to serve as one of the President’s advisers.}

He has ONLY a BA degree in liberal art, yet he is advising an illiterate zionist stooge on world issues and the complicated Middle East and writing his weaponized ‘speeches’ to boost the Jews’ interest against the interest of the rest in the world.

    This illiterate fellow copies from the garbage that comes from a baby killer, Netanyahu, and feed it to the world. The people in the middle East reject the zionist garbage when they see it, since they are knowledgeable. The comments in the region has pained trump A ZIONIST CLOWN, at the best.

    Hey Paul Leo Faso,

    Goldman Sachs Group wants to make its “Big Move of the Century.”

    November 2016, Wall Street Journal reported that Goldman Sachs Group is coaxing incredibly populated China to have untethered (market) investment acces$ there.

    Such initiative is helped by the ZUSA government’s big plan for an economic & military “pivot” to the Far East which of course under Obama was called the Trans Pacific Partnership (TPP). Some might recall how candidate Trump called the trade agreement “bad” for America and vowed to do a better deal? Where is it? (SIGH)

    Today, interested ZUSA subjects hear nothing about Emperor Trump’s plan for a Far East “pivot” that will also help make America “great again.”

    However, North Korea’s “Rocket Man” has served the ZUSA government ( including Secretary Mnuchin’s beloved Goldman Sachs Group) very well by facilitating an astronomical boost of military weaponry around the China neighborhood.

    When young in Scranton, I used to hear a lot of the song, “When Irish eyes are smiling.”

Jews are physically chicken. The also don’t have the concept of giving back to this country, which has given them so much. My Dad was Jewish, so I might have ended up in that typical group of Jews you talk about; except for certain reasons. Saw communism up close and personal within the former East Germany and Czechoslovakia in the 1980′s. My dad was a World War Two veteran. I know he originally voted for Wendell Willie and didn’t want to go, but he was called up in the first peace time draft in 1941. I was pretty young when he died, but he was thrilled that his parents had the good sense to come here after World War One. He used to call this country “the best one in the world” So I did grow up with the idea that one day I would do something in return for this country. Couldn’t be infantry of course, I’m female, but proud that I went.

    The Chrlotyteville matter can be seem as a conflict of pinions. Vandalizing a Holocaust memorial is pure, unadulterated, crime.

    many people believe the Holocaust is a blood libel cynically used to demonize the German people in particular and all people of European extraction in general.

    a device to use collective guilt in such a one-sided and dishonest way that it allows Zionists to murder and genocide an entire people with impunity, and even claim victim status as they do it.

    is it any wonder that some people have had it with the endless shrieking about the Holocau$t?

    what are there, about twelve movies every month demonizing Germans and southern men while all Jews are always made out to be victims or violin-playing geniuses?

    I agree that there are a lot of good and decent Jews, and that blanket stereotypes about people in general are not fair to the individuals who represent the exceptions, but then where were the Jewish voices of outrage when Israel was dropping white phosphorous in Gaza? It seems like John Stewart was the last Jewish voice on the msm that spoke of the Palestinians as humans.

    I didn’t watch the Emmys, but I doubt there were many people there who spoke out against the Eternal Wars for Israel that the ZUSA has been engaged ever since the 9/11 false flag attack.

Gorky said that Iran was a threat to the USA; I suggested that Gorky look at a map and count the bases USA had surrounding Iran, then tally up the bases that Iran had on or around US territory. “What is Iran doing to USA, that USA should aim so many guns at Iran, on its own home turf,” I asked SG.
    Honest to god — I have it on record — Gorky came near to popping a blood vessel when he screamed in my face: “Iran says Death to America!”
    For that reason, USA should maintain Iran in the crosshairs of 36 military bases, about which, in your cribbed view, Iran should be totally complacent.

    All Jews in the USA need to be made to feel extremely uncomfortable.

    A week or so ago a US Congressional committee held a hearing on Syria. More than two or three of the reps said things like, “There are good Muslims and bad Muslims. We need to persuade the good Muslims to call out the bad Muslims.”

    In other words, in the view of the US Congress it is appropriate — necessary, even, to put the entire Muslim community under the microscope so that we inherently good Americans may pass judgment on them, and also so that Muslim A can be induced to rat out Muslim B.

    I couldn’t believe it.

    But if that’s the way things work according to US Congress, then I see no reason why the same system should not apply to Jews, all American Jews. And given the cosmopolitanism of Jews, maybe not just American Jews but ALL Jews should be put under the microscope, examined and judged, and required to call out those of their number who offend against American interests.

    Nah! I can’t think of a single scholar who thought this applied to all Jews in general – it most certainly did not.

    The nuance is found when you accept certain aspects about the Arabic language and rhetoric. According to the rules of rhetoric, it is completely fine to state “the Jews” or “the people” any either of the following cases; 1) when all of the group is meant, 2) when some of the group is meant, 3) when just one of the group is meant. The context must be explored in order to determine the intention.

    In fact, one might say a similar discussion is going on in this thread regarding Mr. Giraldi’s use of the phrase “American Jews” in his title; context and intention is key.

    Languages are quirky like that and don’t translate well always. For instance, it is a completely valid grammatical statement in Arabic (and the sentence has its own qualification) to say something like; all the men left the room except the cat.

Then I reminded you of one of the favorite modern examples; Jewish communists spying for the USSR. -Rosenberg, Greenglass, Oppenheimer?, etc.

    Breitbart was a JINO, in name only. Actually more closely ethnically related to .. Steve Bannon and The Donald.

    He was adopted at three weeks old and raised Jewish but became agnostic. His biological parents had been Irish American. He said that his birth certificate indicated his biological father was a folk singer. His adoptive mother had converted to Judaism when marrying his adoptive father. – Liepedia

    Not even a real Jewish mother to love him. A convert. Oh dear how sad never mind.
    The real puzzle is – of the three, Trump, Bannon or Breitbart, who is the most assiduous Zionist?

    The Mizrahi are really NOT ARABS.

    Sephardi are not indigenous MENA Jews. They are descendants of Jews who lived in Spain and then spread north to Europe and south to the MENA.

    Mizrahi like many MENA Christians are actually descendants of the original Jews who lived in the MENA centuries before both the 650AD Arab Muslim invasion and the creation of Christianity, 2,000 years ago.

    In addition to Chaldeans, Assyrians, Berbers Yazidis, Zorastrians, , and Mizrahi Jews, there are plenty of groups in the MENA who are NOT ARABS but descendants of ancient indigenous people.
    There are also Persian Jews, an ancient and powerful group who have lived in Persia for at least 4,000 years. They have recently invaded and conquered Beverly Hills Ca.
    I know all about the Khazar theory and the Ashkenazi Jews. Why tell me about them.
    People who know little about Jews, Palestine and Jewish history generally don’t know that Mizrahi Jews exist and think that they are Sephardi Jews. Like you.

    What Hojjat al-Islam Mojtaba Zonour, a former advisor to the Supreme Leader’s representative to the Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps, actually threatened was that Iran could use its missiles to destroy 36 different U.S. military bases. He singled out the U.S. Fifth Fleet headquarters in Bahrain specifically and said Iran could flatten it

    .

    Well, why should we take lightly the words and intentions of you Supreme Leader and his Advisors as anything but a threat? They did say very similar things [Khomeini was exhorting his followers from Paris] months prior to taking over the U.S. embassy in ’79.

    As for speaking Farsi, I do speak some [time spent in the Gulf] and Khatib’s writing is a very helpful paraphrase of what was said. You’ve got a shitty translator. That’s all. I’ve got a far better one evidently. Let me give you a direct translation :

    A member of the National Security and Foreign Affairs Committee of the Parliament said that 36 US military bases are in Iran’s missile systems. According to Fars Qom, Hojatoleslam Mujtaba Zolnour said during the commemoration of the day of the mobilization of industrial engineers with an emphasis on the achievement of the field of influence. : The leadership has kept the country away from this influence, but now it is also a serious threat to the Iranian nation, and the resolutions that it is said to have been abrogated have led to other problems and, in fact, the threat to the enemy has become more and more complete

    Hey Wulf,

    Speaking about the “Muslim ban”, what do you think about it?

    It wasn’t a “Muslim ban” – it was obviously targeted towards certain Muslim countries while exempting others. Calling it a “Muslim ban” was the Left trying to shift the parameters of the discussion.

    As I posted a long time ago…
    Every nation has a right to set immigration policies it feels are best for its future. If the people of the US decided they only wanted nubile Brazilian women with certain chest and hip ratios – it is fully within their rights.

    I’m not an SJW Muslim, I don’t get triggered by people trying to keep Muslims out of Western countries. With the way certain Muslims behave when allowed into secular-free societies, it may actually be doing them a favor (for their spiritual well-being and afterlife) if they are kept in societies that have rules to keep their behavior in check if they are not spiritually mature enough to do it themselves.

    Thanks for nice Bernard Lewis quote which I shall happily accept as genuine despite BL being Jewish and therefore specially liable to be subjected to fake quotes. I don’t think the Brits treated Australians as worse cannon fodder than their own in the early 20th century. Despite Churchill’s understandable ruling class preference for Imperial Indian interests over anything to do with those low class colonials lots of upper and upper middle class English men (and women) knew the young Australia and appreciated it, not least for the money they had made.

    If you rely on the impression given by Peter Weir’s ?(David Williamson’s) film “Gallipoli” that it was an English officer giving the fatal order for the worst suicidal attack then you have been, like many of us, taken in by the voìce – which was not untypical of the kiñd of officer class Australian who actually gave the order. More generally, Australians and other Dominion troops tended to be physically bigger and fitter than the English and often from a rural background of familiarity with guns and observing terrain. They weren’t so much used as cannon fodder (none on the dreadful first day of the Somme I think) as chosen for the tough battles necause they were good – and all volunteers. Indeed Australia had largely managed to get its troops in France out of the clutches of inadequate professional British generals by forming a corps under Gen. John Monash whom Lloyd George wrote up in his memoirs as the general who should have become British Commander-in-Chief in 1919. (My first boss, snorted at this when I quoted it though he had known and enormously admired Monash – a quote ” any – presumably plaintiff’s – solicitor who hadn’t – pre WW1 – retained Monash as expert [engineering] witness was prima facie guilty of negligence”. Monash was the son of Prussian Jewish immigrants who went to Scotch College and built up a big civil engineering business while advancing as part time soldier. My said first boss was quite capable of making generalisations about Jews which weren’t entirely favourable but for honourable character I think he would have put Monash and Lloyd George at opposite poles, which explaìned the snort).

    If Sanders ever advocated a no-fly zone, you should be able to find him doing so somewhere in the public record. Of course, the reason you haven’t produced any such example is because there isn’t one. Since you were so sure that Sanders had advocated a no-fly zone, this just confirms that you have absolutely no idea what you’re talking about and should probably shut up forever.

    As for Sanders advocating the removal of Assad through “negotiated settlement”, yes, he has advocated this, but everyone knows that he would have no power to do this unless military force was used, which Sanders opposes. So it’s meaningless boilerplate. Besides, we’re not talking about whether Sanders is great on foreign policy (I agree he isn’t), we’re talking about whether he would have been better than Trump. I think it’s clear he would be. Trump has not only, at times, talked about removing Assad, he’s actually attacked Assad with military force 6 times so far, without even Congressional approval. Sanders is pretty bad on foreign policy, but it would be hard for him to be worse than Trump.

    Those American Jews who are strongly attached to Israel and somehow find themselves in senior policy making positions involving the Middle East and who actually possess any integrity on the issue should recuse themselves, just as any judge would do if he were presiding over a case in which he had a personal interest.

    The British administrators of Imperial India were not likely to recuse themselves over questions involving India’s relationship with Great Britain.

    There are some strong parallels here.

    The British in India regarded themselves as racially superior to Indian nationals, showed a high level of ethnic solidarity, and had social systems in place to separate them from the natives, along with rewards for working in the Imperial administration (i.e. they lived in a comfortable elite bubble – with, as Ron pointed out elsewhere, a select group of Anglicized high caste native collaborators).

    Imperial India was required to provide troops and funding for British wars , with trade and finance designed to benefit British interests and the Home country (Great Britain).

    Natives calling for independence from Great Britain, were harassed and investigated, and faced prison as subversives, with Indian Nationalism being denounced in the British owned Indian press.

    In fact the British crushed the attempt of Mahatma Gandhi and the Indian National Congress to force them to “quit India” in 1942 but they were weakened by the mass campaign and exhausted officials + the lack of sufficient troops to defeat renewed mass campaigns that eventually led them to leave.

    To my mind, it’s a question of how the small Ziocon minority intend to run their US colony over the longer term (and how they plan to deal with dissent).

    Every one of it’s wars has been waged under fake threats and false pretexts.

  427. I have not read all 436 comments, so I don’t know if this issue has been addressed, but I must say that it appear to me extremely important to distinguish “Jews” from violent Zionists with control issues.

    Most Jews are no worse than any others, while most modern Zionists seem to be the big problem.

    Ethically, philosophically, and practically it makes no more sense to bash all Jews than it does to bash all Muslims.

    In a practical sense, we goyim would do well to avoid rejecting all Jews for the very simple reason that the ethical, honest and intelligent ones are a huge force against the nutcase violent Zionists and Israel firsters.Also, it makes no sense whatsoever to disperse our energy struggling against the good guys while it makes sense to target and marginalize the key culprits such as the troublemakers named in the article. I suspect that all it would take would be to isolate and defang a relative few and it wouldn’t be long before the rest of us could enjoy a little peace.

    Unfortunately, it takes continuous effort to suppress the goof balls who sprout at every opportunity like mushrooms after a rain on a compost pile, and most goyim don’t get that, so we’re screwed outta the gate.

    The violent Zionists and Israel firsters are no doubt as big a threat to ethical Jews as they are to the goyim, and this has been recognized by the perceptive ones since the first rumblings of Zionist agitation over a century ago.

    It is refreshing to find a word at this stage of my reading and writing career that I either don’t know, or know so little about. For me, it first came to (renewed) awareness with the Jeff Sessions involvement in the “Russia” inquiries.
    At dictionary.com we get, “2. to withdraw from a position of judging so as to avoid any semblance of partiality or bias.”
    But it seems to denote that the subject of the recusing, would qualify for the position, otherwise?!
    I don’t think this is the case with U.S.A. policy in the Middle East, specifically.
    As a matter of fact, the condition of performing duties, for the U.S. government, under oath, but actually performing those duties with the primary interest that of a different, independent political faction and/or nation-state is well covered in the U.S. Constitution, and under U.S. Federal Law; one place it can be seen is at this link:

    https://www.law.cornell.edu/uscode/text/18/part-I/chapter-115

    18 U.S. Code Chapter 115 – TREASON, SEDITION, AND SUBVERSIVE ACTIVITIES
    18 U.S. Code § 2381 – Treason: “Whoever, owing allegiance to the United States, levies war against them or adheres to their enemies, giving them aid and comfort within the United States or elsewhere, is guilty of treason and shall suffer death, or shall be imprisoned not less than five years and fined under this title but not less than $10,000; and shall be incapable of holding any office under the United States.
    (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 807; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(2)(J), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2148.)”
    18 U.S. Code § 2384 – Seditious conspiracy:
    “If two or more persons in any State or Territory, or in any place subject to the jurisdiction of the United States, conspire to overthrow, put down, or to destroy by force the Government of the United States, or to levy war against them, or to oppose by force the authority thereof, or by force to prevent, hinder, or delay the execution of any law of the United States, or by force to seize, take, or possess any property of the United States contrary to the authority thereof, they shall each be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than twenty years, or both.
    (June 25, 1948, ch. 645, 62 Stat. 808; July 24, 1956, ch. 678, § 1, 70 Stat. 623; Pub. L. 103–322, title XXXIII, § 330016(1)(N), Sept. 13, 1994, 108 Stat. 2148.)”

    It seems quite straight-forward under U.S. Federal law that persons who will not work in the best interests of (all/majority of) the people of the United States of America, on Middle East affairs, or anything else, all fit into the same category for treatment under the existing law, they do NOT qualify for positions in the U.S. government, and may not qualify for citizenship in the U.S.A..

    Am I missing something?

    You make many good points, jacques, & I confess to being a tad chastened.

    When one feels a little guilty, you start to think up counter-arguments and defenses: instead of saying, ie. “It was totally wrong to write that ALL Jews must be made to feel uncomfortable,” I try to defend it, parse it, point out its rationality.

    Best I could come up with is the experience of joining J-Street in its very earliest days. I went to the local temple to organizing meeting, attended training sessions, practiced media presentations, planned & hosted interfaith events — the works. Then J Street grew – phenomenally — and became AIPAC lighte. J-Street co-sponsored, with ZOA and AIPAC, the Iran Task Force, whose mission was to take down Iran economically. So from my perspective, I had been seduced to join in solidarity (god I hate that word) with the “good guys” who were, in my hope, going to counter the efforts of the “bad guys” who were threatening Iran, against the best interests of MY primary interest, the USA. But in fact, J-Street was merely the back bench.

    How do you know who the “good Jews” are?

    After that painful lesson w/ J-Street, I took my advocacy efforts straight to pro-Iran groups (carefully vetted — MEK has “Iran” attached to it, but MEK seeks to destroy Iran.) I became active with groups that organized and prepared activists to lobby Congress in support of the JCPOA. We had arranged a final meeting before our scheduled visit to Capitol Hill. A Jewish guy appeared at that meeting and more or less commandeered it; he knew more about what we were doing than we did; he pretended to support our activism, got everyone talking freely, got everyone slobbering all over Jews and their rights to defensible borders etc etc etc, then, in effect, he pulled off his shirt and displayed his SuperJew loyalty: “Your efforts will fail,” he assured us. “And if JCPOA does pass, it will still be a benefit to Israel, because Israel will then have access to Iran’s nuclear secrets.”

    In other words, how do you know who the “good Jews” are?

    I no longer contribute my support “in solidarity” with Jewish groups of any stripe.

    I think it’s time we non-Jewish Americans stood up and claimed America for Americans; it’s time for US to organize and infiltrate and speak out as boldly and as forcefully as Jewish groups do.

    I typed this — but I’m not sure about it —> if Jews wish not to be marginalized and targeted as members of the “bad Jews” cohort, then they will have to give their support to OUR efforts and OUR organizations.
    I’m not sure about it because I have witnessed infiltrators — I participated in a seminar planned and hosted by Muslims in my community, with the goal of making Islam known to non-Muslim members of the community. A break-out session was arranged so that small groups could talk with a practicing Muslim. The “Muslim” woman assigned to my small group was dressed in long robe, hair covered, etc. As the conversation progressed she revealed that she was born & raised in a Jewish family, converted to Christianity, now converted again to Islam. iow, a spy, an infiltrator. damn it.

    re your statement:

    “In a practical sense, we goyim would do well to avoid rejecting all Jews for the very simple reason that the ethical, honest and intelligent ones are a huge force against the nutcase violent Zionists and Israel firsters.”

    Really? How’s that working out so far (where “so far” means the last century or so)?

    I talk to far more Iranians (non-Jewish) who argue that the Iranian people and Israelis/Jews are age-old friends and should be so again, than I hear of Jews who argue that Israel and Iran should renew their age-old friendship. I suspect this is so because the Jews who run Israel, or at least the ideological basis for the form of zionism that dominates Israel (from its earliest Jabotinskyite days until today) are mostly of Eastern European origin: they are NOT majority Iranian Jews (I’d hazard a guess that there are more Iranian Jews in Los Angeles than in Israel).
    Israel’s leaders — and American Jewish “trouble makers” are, similarly, not German Jews, not Sephardic or Mizrahi, they are East European Jews (although those Tehrangeles Jews ARE among the trouble-maker class: Ed Royce, Eliot Engel, Brad Sherman, Diane Feinstein, even Pelosi dance to their tune. They behave as would be expected of an expatriated group who may have lost wealth or possessions or status upon leaving Iran — compare them to exiled Cubans who resent like hell being dispossessed of their gambling enclaves and sugar plantations, etc.); they’re from Poland, Lithuania, Hungary, Belarus. Their orientation to things Jewish is Talmudic; their long history in Poland is extremely important to understand inasmuch as it influenced their ways of being-in-the-world, which they brought to Israel AND TO USA; their worldview is inflected by Heinrich Graetz’s version of Jewish history

    Also, it makes no sense whatsoever to disperse our energy struggling against the good guys

    Agree wholeheartedly.

    “while it makes sense to target and marginalize the key culprits such as the troublemakers named in the article. I suspect that all it would take would be to isolate and defang a relative few and it wouldn’t be long before the rest of us could enjoy a little peace.”

    You are more optimistic than I.

    My tendency is to start by learning all that can be gleaned about the topic (‘zionism’ may be the broadest topic in all of modern history, inasmuch as zionists/Jews inhabited in and adapted from at least a dozen cultures).

    Our next step, as non-Jewish Americans seeking to “enjoy a little peace” ought to be to summon the courage to speak the truth in love (not squishy sentimentality but with love that is manly integrity, preparing the world for our children & grandchildren). Host lectures in your church and library, your living room and local newspaper. Share what you have learned: I believe people are eager to be well-informed.

    This packet of information about the American Jewish Congress might serve as an aid to identifying, “isolating and defanging” those “relative few . . .”

    I KNEW the Koch brothers would be mentioned!

    Bernie Sanders scarcely made a speech without blasting the Kochs, but I don’t recall him hinting at the excessive wealth/power wielded by Haim Saban or Adelson.

    When you bother to think about it, you realize that Jews arrived in USA with more wealth and more educational attainment –courtesy of their former host countries — than any other immigrant group. Phil Weiss one wrote a column expressing his “gratitude to Jewish bankers” who helped his family and so many others get a jump-start.

    So why bash the Kochs — they made their money the hard way, they earned it, employing thousands in the process and committed to American interests and USA inside the global community. You got a problem with that?

    If you can bash the Kochs, so what if others are antisemitic?
    Is there a law against not liking Jews?

    OH — why, yes there is.
    Unlike the Kochs, Jews have special protections from people who might call out Jews who do what are thought to be evil deeds.
    How did that come about? How did Jews get to be a privileged group to the extent that there is a special office that sniffs under toilet seats and into medicine cabinets to discover any whiff of antisemitism?

    do you suppose some people might think special privileges for Jews and no one else flies in the face of US Constitutional principles?

    For those who think that the universe was created, monotheism is better than polytheism because monotheism best describes the physical universe. The universe is consistent, its rules of organization are the same everywhere.

    You mean the dual citizen Iranians who went back to Iran and broke the law? Or the ex FBI spook who went missing while “investigating” cigarette smuggling?

    Then let’s recall all the American military patriots who were maimed and murdered by Iranian IED’s.

    I hate that Americans were killed and injured, but that is a risk when you invade another nation. Death in war is not “murder”. We would have been better off bringing all our troops home and leaving Iraq to the Iraqis.

    Then let’s go back to the bombing of American embassy’s around the world that Iran is behind

    Those have tended to be Al Qaeda inspired, AQ is allied with Saudi and Israel not Iran.

    Then let’s recall the Marine baracks bombed in Lebanon.

    The sad result of using the USS New Jersey to shell villages in the hills above Beirut. US troops should have never been sent in. Reagan did the right thing by pulling our troops out of Israel’s mess and bringing them home.

    let’s recall the American hostages held by Iran for 444 days after they took over our embassy in Tehran.

    the greatest threat to our safety and sovereignty- the ability that private wealthy citizens have to disproportionally influence politics

    it isn’t really private wealthy citizens but rather International banking cartels that own our central bank and use our own money to corrupt our politics and buy our media and subvert our universities until ‘we the people’ are disenfranchised slaves in our own lands.

    the problem isn’t David Geffen and his millions. The problem is that from the length and breath of our media to the Wall Street banks to the universities to the courts to even our Supreme Court, the ill-gotten lucre looted from our Treasury is used as a weapon against us, to corrupt and corrode our institutions; the very institutions we all depend on to inform and educate us all.

    and that’s why there are so many Jews sitting on our courts

    lurking in our universities

    slithering on Wall Street and using their poodles like Bubba to hand Robert Rubin the keys to the Treasury and kill Glass–Steagall so they can loot near infinite truck loads of our hard-earned wealth all to themselves. And then use that wealth to further corrupt our politicians and create a circle of theft and villainy that is seems only a proverbial ‘strong man’ can save us from.

    perhaps the thieves at the Fed will decide they’ve looted enough lucre and exerted enough nefarious power over the lives of others, that they’ll decide on their own to hand over power and the coining of our currency back to the representatives of the republic, who’ll return to governing for the sake of a principled and moral standing in the world. But I’m not holding my breath.

    There was no ethnic cleansing of Jews from Gaza. Sharon decided it was less costly to remove the Jewish occupation there than continue Army protection and support for the Jews in Gaza. This also gave Sharon the opportunity to iniatate armed support for the Palestinnian Authority to attack Hamas and divide the group. Moreover, the U.S. tax payer paid the expenses for Israel’s withdrawal from Gaza. Each Israeli family that was displaced received U.S. tax dollars to build a new home and cover additional expenses. Remember the Jews left nothing for the Palestinians but the desolate land upon which the Palestinians quickly cultivated to grow vegetables that could be sold in the West Bank. However, the armed, poor victim Jews would not allow the vegetables to leave Gaza and be sold. Therefore the Palestinians had to watch their efforts and vegetables rot while the armed Israelis stood watch. There are towers and armed soldiers surrounding the Gaza strip which is approximately 6 miles wide and 26 miles long. Our Secretary of State, Condelessa Rice, went to Israel to solve the rotting vegetable problem. To add to the Palestinians suffering, the Israelis demanded that al Sissi of Egypt close the gateway crossing into Egypt. Sissi gained power through an armed takeover of Egypt, thus under U.S. law, it is illegal for the U.S. to provide foreign aid to any country gained through armed insurrection! The U.S. has ignored it own law and coninues to provide $1.5 billion tax dollars to Egypt.

    “Since the October War in 1973, Washington has provided Israel with a level of support dwarfing the amounts provided to any other state. It has been the largest annual recipient of direct U.S. economic and military assistance since 1976 and the largest total recipient since World War ll. Total direct U.S. aid to Israel amounts to well over $140 billion in 2003 dollars. Israel receives about $3 billion in direct foreign assistance each year, which is roughly one-fifth of America’s entire foreign aid budget. In per capita terms, the United States gives each Israeli a direct subsidy worth about $500 per year. This largesse is especially striking when one realizes that Israel is now a wealthy industrial state with a per capita income roughly equal to South Korea or Spain.” -Univ. of Chicago Professor, John J.

    Jesus was a Judean, not a “Jewish” man. There is a difference. Iranian followers of the Hebrew religion have never called themselves “Jewish”, they have always been called and called themselves “Ya-hood”. That translates to Judean, not Jewish. Their community is 2,500 years older than any “Jews” that sprung up in history.
    Judeans are Middle Eastern; Jews are ancestral converts to Judaism (only in appearance) from a Turko-Mongolic fallen country known as Khazaria. Judaism, like all other -isms, is a construct of the European banking cartels, which are composed and headed by Khazarians. The Khazarians are everyone’s problem today because of their “chosen” ideology and the depths to which they’ve implemented it over centuries. The Khazarian Jews morphed a Yiddish culture into a Semitic appearing one. They are not Semites. They are descendants of Cain, not Shem or Sem.
    The Hebrew religion is only the Books of Moses. Judaism is the Books of Moses as amended and defied by the Talmud and Kabala. The Talmud and Kabala are aimed at creating loopholes in the Word of God as passed on to Moses. They took the first five books of the Torah, and added their own. Because the Talmud and Kabala defy the Word of God, they are, by definition, Satanic. They have added books to the Tanakh that are purely political and a mountainload of tactics and strategies on how to dominate Gentiles.
    The Judean consider “Israel” to be all of mankind, not simply a nation. They consider Abraham’s covenant with God to pre-date Moses, and therefore, the Judean religion. It is a covenant with all mankind. The “Jews” consider only themselves to be “Chosen”.
    Because the labels are applied in English and European languages, Iran’s Judeans are called Jewish as well, but they are not the same thing at all. Iran’s Judeans are direct descendants of the Hebrews of the Bible, the Jews are simply political imposters. They are basically trying to steal the identity of the Judeans.

I fully support Valerie Plame’s decision to disseminate Philip Giraldi’s article via the method of re-Tweeting the Unz Review article. The Jewish involvement in foreign policy decision-making and the Jewish involvement in the corporate media coverage of foreign policy is a legitimate topic of discussion.

    I also hereby disavow President Trump’s actions which signal the continuation of Neo-Con involvement in the formation of foreign policy for the United States. George W Bush and the Neo-Cons dragged the United States into the Iraq War debacle. George W Bush is gone, but the Neo-Cons remain. Many millions of us voted for President Trump in the hope that he would dispense with the disastrous foreign policy advice emanating from the Neo-Cons.

  510. Boldeagle says:

    This writer is an idiot and exemplary of why Jews must protect themselves from antisemites. I could pick his article apart bit by bit but given time contraints, I’ll mention just a few bonehead statements.

    Concerning Iran he does not mention once that the most popular slogan by crowds is Death to America. Yes, it’s Death to Israel too, but you can bet they would go after America if they had the means and it would have nothing to do with Jews. The 1979 riots against America and kidnapping had zero to do with Jews.

    The writer suggests that Iran does not wish to destroy Israel. Idiot. They say it over and over just as that German guy said it 70 years ago. What is there not to understand here?

    A complete dunce, his remedy is that Jews in America should never make decisions on the mideast, but suggests they those in security have the North Korea portfolio instead. Really? North Korea is a greater threat to Israel in many ways than other Islamic countries. North Korea was building the nuclear reactor in Syria which Israel destroyed ten years ago, killing several top North Koreans. North Korea is happy to export weapons to all of Israel’s main enemies and would continue with nuclear weapons if possible. Iran gets much of its nuclear technology from North Korea. So if Jews were overlooking NK, might they not have a similarly harsh view as they do of mideast countries that are out to destroy them?

    If Jews are sensitive to Israel and concerned about potential enemies, the reason lies in the misinformation dolts and idiots spread about Israel, thus always putting it in danger. There are more lies told about Israel than any country in the world. Want proof? The once highly thought of British medical journal The Lancelet picked on Israel for years, writing hundreds of incendiary pieces disparaging that country. Finally they went to far with an overtly anti-semitic piece and the top person of the Lancelet made a trip to Israel to see for himself, after being the chief critic for over a decade. He came back saying he was wrong, that he had made serious errors and that Israel was not the country he had been led to believe. He vowed to stop writing those types of articles.

    Much of the world condemns Israel without knowing facts. Same with countries. So if Jews are interested in protecting Israel it’s the truth they are most interested in protecting.

    There is a saying when a serious event occurs. “What’s in it for the Jews?” Some will jump on that as typical self serving Jewishness but what it really means is this. Jews are the canary in the coal mine when it comes to serious political matters. It may be the Jews who suffer first but eventually it will be everyone. So when it is asked, “What’s in it for the Jews?” it really means, what is the future looking like for all of us.

    Now I could never expect an antisemite turd like this writer to get any of that. His position is clearly revealed early on. He doesn’t like or trust Jews and blames them for wars. Never mind that a host of countries trying to develop nukes would love to try one out on Israel only to see what improvements they might need to use the next one on the US. Israel and Jews are the canaries. Personally I’d like to see those canaries live and prosper because that would be good news for the rest of us. Anything less would be a harbinger that would and should scare all Americans, idiot writer included.

    Many true Jews apparently would also agree and have warned about the frauds that use the Jewish narrative to further their own greedy, perverted causes.

    I do wish real Jews would speak out against them more frequently and get more exposure.

    [T]he evidence from anthropology concurs with history in refuting the popular belief in a Jewish race descended from the biblical tribe. From the anthropologist’s point of view, two groups of facts militate against this belief: the wide diversity of Jews with regard to physical characteristics, and their similarity to the Gentile population amidst whom they live. Both are reflected in the statistics about bodily height, cranial index, blood-groups, hair and eye colour, etc. Whichever of these anthropological criteria is taken as an indicator, it shows a greater similarity between Jews and their Gentile host-nation than between Jews living in different countries. …The obvious biological explanation for both phenomena is miscegenation, which took different forms in different historical situations: intermarriage, large-scale proselytizing, rape as a constant (legalized or tolerated) accompaniment of war and pogrom.

    Arthur Koestler, The Thirteenth Tribe (1976).

    “The Invention of the Jewish People,” first published in Hebrew in Israel with the title, Matai ve’ech humtza ha’am hayehudi?, is by Shlomo Sand, Professor of History at Tel Aviv University.

    It explains and clarifies a lot about Zionism as well as “Semitism.”

    The book was a bestseller in Israel for several months …

    http://mondoweiss.net/2011/12/new-york-times-implies-anti-zionism-is-anti-semitic.html

    Countering official Zionist historiography, Sand questions whether the Jewish People ever existed as a national group with a common origin in the Land of Israel/Palestine. He concludes that the Jews should be seen as a religious community comprising a mishmash of individuals and groups that had converted to the ancient monotheistic religion but do not have any historical right to establish an independent Jewish state in the Holy Land. In short, the Jewish People, according to Sand, are not really a “people” in the sense of having a common ethnic origin and national heritage. They certainly do not have a political claim over the territory that today constitutes Israel and the occupied Palestinian territories, including Jerusalem.”

Showing that the neocon movement has always identified closely with the interests of Israel’s Likudnik right wing, the discussion contends that neocon advice on Iraq was the exact opposite of conventional United States foreign policy, which has always sought to maintain stability in the region to promote the flow of oil. Various players in the rush to war are assessed according to their motives, including President Bush, Ariel Sharon, members of the foreign-policy establishment, and the American people, who are seen not as having been dragged into war against their will, but as ready after 9/11 for retaliation.

    I do tend to be philosemitic for reasons that probably come down to no bad expetiences with Jews and appreciation of wit, himour and intellect that I happen to enjoy and value rather than, by contrast, their disproportionate support for philanthropic causes I approve of, like hospitals, or enjoy, like the Arts. (It is not so much that I cynically assess the publicised philanthropic efforts of rich self-made Jews and non-Jews alike as ways of buying social acceptance but I regard giving by the rich as just a good part of all civilised traditions and of human psychology; cf. Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs).

    Now, would you try to make sense of the particular. I mean “Another philosemitic apologia”. What was philosemitic about what I wrote? What makes it an “apologia” either in the traditional and dictionary sense – or in some version you might care to define for your purposes?

    Yes, there are those Israel first TV and new media people who belatedly want to convince us that Iraq was all about oil. For some reason, oil was never mentioned throughout the nineties as the cause to attack Iraq. Moreover, oil was not given as the reason to invade Iraq by Bush or Cheney — remember it was WEAPONS OF MASS DESTRUCTION! Indeed, Colin Powell did not discuss oil when he presented the U.S. case for attacking Iraq at the United Nations meeting. The U.S. was not suffering an oil shortage. Although the U.S. had the CIA working inside Iraq with the Kurds for years, the CIA was not there seeking knowledge of Iraq’s oil — just guess why the U.S. was paying tax dollars to the Kurds. Did Kissinger at one time promise the Kurds their own state as compensation for their cooperation? Oil was never the reason that Iraq was attacked — Israel had been promised regime change in Iraq.

    Why not be pro-American — U.S. tax payers contribute billions to Israel. The last Memorandum of Understanding also provides that the U.S. share its science developments and provide its “raw” intelligence with Israel. Also, Israel has the American market of 330 million within which to sell its products. Israel gives the U.S. a market of perhaps 5 million people for sales. Israel is not a democratic state; it is a religious state. Most disturbing is that Israel will not proclaim that it has borders. Israel does not recognize international law — only laws from which it alone can benefit.

    North Korea is a greater threat to Israel in many ways than other Islamic countries. North Korea was building the nuclear reactor in Syria which Israel destroyed ten years ago, killing several top North Koreans. North Korea is happy to export weapons to all of Israel’s main enemies and would continue with nuclear weapons if possible. Iran gets much of its nuclear technology from North Korea.

    Concerning Iran … …The 1979 riots against America and kidnapping had zero to do with Jews.

    this from Wiki regarding Israel’s involvement with Iran’s terror organization under the Shah

    SAVAK… … was the secret police, domestic security and intelligence service established by Iran’s Mohammad Reza Shah with the help of the United States’ Central Intelligence Agency (the CIA) and Israeli Mossad.

    more:

    A turning point in SAVAK’s reputation for ruthless brutality was reportedly an attack on a gendarmerie post in the Caspian village of Siahkal … after this attack SAVAK interrogators were sent abroad for “scientific training to prevent unwanted deaths from ‘brute force.’ Brute force was supplemented with the bastinado; sleep deprivation; extensive solitary confinement; glaring searchlights; standing in one place for hours on end; nail extractions; snakes (favored for use with women); electrical shocks with cattle prods, often into the rectum; cigarette burns; sitting on hot grills; acid dripped into nostrils; near-drownings; mock executions; and an electric chair with a large metal mask to muffle screams while amplifying them for the victim. This latter contraption was dubbed the Apollo—an allusion to the American space capsules. Prisoners were also humiliated by being raped, urinated on, and forced to stand naked.[17] Despite the new ‘scientific’ methods, the torture of choice remained the traditional bastinado used to beat soles of the feet. The “primary goal” of those using the bastinados “was to locate arms caches, safe houses and accomplices …”[18]

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SAVAK

    I like that they place the “primary goal” of the torture in quotes, to point out that the primary goal was really sadistic cruelty for its own sake.

    when Israel’s Mossad was given a free hand to torture Iran’s men and women into submission to Israel’s agenda, Iran and Israel were bestest buddies. But ever since Iran freed itself from the brutal Shah regime, Israel has demanded Iran’s destruction.

    And it’s only because the US has acted like Israel’s bitch and relentlessly threatened Iran, that Iran resents the US. Only the dumbest of the dumb think Iran dislikes America because we’re too free.

    that’s like saying the Palestinians hate the Jews because Israel is a democracy

    From a purely pragmatic view, an Israeli passport is not a great asset and there’s no real advantage over having just a USA passport. This means American Jews with full loyalty to Israel may still choose to hold only American citizenship. They know that if things get difficult for them personally or for America as a whole, they can go straight to Israel with no questions asked. Until then, they can hedge their bets by remaining superficially American while intrinsically Israelis-in-waiting.

    As such, being Jewish and being Israeli is effectively the same thing. Jews can therefore be considered dual citizens and hence have conflicts of interest with regards to America’s foreign policy.

  573. Why is it that Jews get collectively blamed by Mr. Giraldi and many commenters on the article for the hawkish views of Jewish neoconservatives, but not praised for the dovish views of left-leaning Jewish anti-war activists and writers? Noam Chomsky, Glenn Greenwald, Howard Zinn, Max Blumenthal, Matt Yglesias, Eric Alterman, Phillip Weiss, etc.—-Jews are highly overrepresented among prominent critics of American foreign policy as well as supporters. (Libertarian Jews, like Murray Rothbard, are also generally very critical of American foreign policy.)

    Indeed, the anti-Vietnam War movement of the 1960s and early 1970s was heavily Jewish (e.g. Jerry Rubin and Abbie Hoffman). I presume that, based on the standards of collective responsibility he uses in this article, Mr. Giraldi would be happy to thank and praise American Jews collectively for their opposition to the epically disastrous Vietnam War, the architects of which were largely Gentiles. (Unlike the Jewish architects of the Iraq War, such as President George W. Bush, Vice-President Dick Cheney, Secretary of State Colin Powell and Secretary of Defense Donald Rumsfeld. Gentile supporters of the war were mostly relatively low ranking officials, like speechwriter David Frum or “Special Assistant for [x, y z]” Elliot Abrams.)

    (To drop the sarcasm for a moment in case someone doesn’t get this—I’m not in fact saying that Jews should collectively be praised for anti-Vietnam War activism; I think the idea of assigning collective moral responsibility to ethnic groups is stupid. I also, for instance, think it’s stupid to collectively blame whites for African slavery, Germans for the Holocaust, Americans for crimes against Amerindians, etc. as opposed to the ideologies and institutions responsible for a given atrocity.)

    We are all Jews now
    By Gilbert Porter Blythe
    October 19, 2003

    Since September 11, 2001, George W. Bush has made no attempt to understand the motives of people who hate us. A few hours after the World Trade Center collapsed, he announced that “America was targeted for attack because we’re the brightest beacon for freedom and opportunity in the world.” Two days later, he spoke of terrorists who “hate our values” and “hate what America stands for.” President Bush has never deviated from this theme. He insists that attacks on our soldiers in Iraq are led by people who “hate freedom.”

    In Mr. Bush’s view, Arabs, the Taliban, al Qaeda, and Muslims all around the world do not hate us because we have hurt them or harmed their interests in any way. They hate us because they hate freedom, and America stands for freedom. It is only a small step to conclude that they hate us because we are good and they are bad. Some of the president’s less simple-minded advisors paint a slightly more complex picture: Arabs are jealous of America’s cultural and economic success, and their oppressive regimes channel internal discontent into hatred for America and Israel.

    It is convenient but dangerous for Americans to convince themselves that their enemies have no real grievances, but want to kill us only because they hate our goodness and blame us for their own failures. If they really hate us for what we are rather than what we do, they cannot be reasoned with but must be treated as dangerous madmen. We need not think seriously about their motives or consider what we may have done to injure or offend them.

    The almost deliberate blindness required for this point of view is particularly evident in the president’s insistence that Iraqis attack our soldiers because the attackers “hate freedom.” What they hate, of course, is occupation by foreigners, rule by infidels, daily humiliation, and the steady stream of Iraqi casualties added to the estimated tens of thousands we killed during the initial phase of the war. They do not hate freedom; they seek freedom from occupation and humiliation.

    To insist that Osama bin Laden also hates freedom is equally obtuse, in light of his clearly stated reasons for opposing the United States: the presence of American troops on the sacred soil of Saudi Arabia, economic sanctions against Iraq, and especially our unwavering support for Israel. In his October 18 message to Americans he was quite explicit: “We are counting our dead, may God bless them, especially in Palestine, who are killed by your allies the Jews. We are going to take revenge for them from your blood, God willing, as we did on the day of New York.” Mr. bin Laden has frequently denounced what he describes as the cultural and moral decadence of the West, but he has never cited it as a reason to kill us.

    It is only by convincing ourselves we are the blameless victims of unfathomable hatred that we can justify acts that shock the world and that even our European allies oppose: preemptive war, unilateral violence, and detention without charges. We are so convinced of our own purity and of the irrational wickedness of our enemies that we turn on our former friends, most strikingly against the French, if they fail to understand that we are in a struggle of pure good versus pure evil.

    There is a not-coincidental similarity between the president’s views of good and evil and the Jewish preoccupation with anti-Semitism. Jews have always insisted that if gentiles dislike them it is because of who they are, not what they do. Adopting a view like that of Mr. Bush’s view of attacks against the United States, they refuse to consider whether their own actions may cause hostility. In the United States, the Anti-Defamation League, the Simon Wiesenthal Center, and countless smaller organizations are on constant alert for anti-Semitism anywhere in the world, yet the ADL and the Wiesenthal Center are silent as to why anyone would dislike Jews. The Steven Roth Institute of Contemporary Anti-Semitism and Racism at Tel Aviv University has extensive files of reported anti-Semitism but nothing to say about what causes it. For those organizations, anti-Semitism is like Mr. Bush’s conception of Osama bin Laden: an irrational upwelling of pure evil.

    Some Jews have tried to explain anti-Semitism. Hannah Arendt concluded that 20th-century anti-Semitism was an outgrowth of totalitarian Marxism and Nazism that somehow singled out Jews as unacceptable outsiders. Theodor Adorno and Max Horkheimer of the Frankfurt School argued that it was part of what they called “the authoritarian personality” and was something akin to mental illness. In his 1978 book In Bluebird’s Castle, George Steiner wrote that Nazis were anti-Semites because Jews had better, more humane values. Robert Wistrich, who calls anti-Semitism “the longest hatred,” published his views in a 1999 book whose title summarizes his findings: Demonizing the Other.

    Some Jews have argued that Christians hate Jews because they see them as “Christ-killers,” but that does not explain persistent hostility toward Jews by the ancient Greeks and Romans, or why Muslims have repeatedly repressed Jews. The most common view among Jews is the one expressed by the World Union of Jewish Students in its brief Internet discussion of the causes of anti-Semitism, in which it concludes it is a “persistent hate without logic.” That is an almost perfect expression of Mr. Bush’s view of anti-American terror: it, too, is “hate without logic.”

    The Jewish dismissal of gentile grievances is just as sweeping and self-serving as Mr. Bush’s dismissal of Arab and Muslim grievances against us. Human beings do not “hate without logic.” Sustained hatred takes too much energy for it to be wasted on millions of innocents. Over the centuries, Jews have been disliked because of their clannishness, contempt for non-Jews, disrespect for national institutions, disloyalty, sharp business practices, and many other things people do not like. But just as Mr. Bush has convinced himself that the Iraqis who attack our soldiers “hate freedom,” Jews have convinced themselves they are blameless targets of irrational hatred.

    For many Jews, any criticism of Jews or of Israel is hatred and bigotry. Practically the entire world deplores Israel’s treatment of Palestinians, yet the Israeli authorities refuse to examine their own motives or behavior. Instead, they insist their critics are anti-Semites, meaning, presumably, that if any other group treated Palestinians as they do, the world would approve.

    It is, of course, very much in the interest of American Jews to encourage Mr. Bush in his delusions about the motives of our enemies. Arabs and Muslims hate us primarily because we support Israel and pay for the weapons with which it kills Palestinians. If we were to think about the motives of terrorists rather than dismiss them as delusional murderers, we might reconsider our support for Israel. That would be anathema for Jews, many of whom make no secret of their passionate commitment to Israel.

    For the many influential Jews in Mr. Bush’s circle and in the media, that is why it is important to encourage Americans to think like Jews, that is, to ignore or downplay the concrete reasons others may have to hate us, and to think of them as irrational fanatics who respond only to force. It is in the interest of Jews for gentiles to think like Jews, to see the world as a black-and-white battleground of the virtuous against the wicked, rather than as a complex tangle of competing claims in which there may be legitimacy on both sides. George W. Bush is only the most important and powerful convert to that view of the world.

    It would be entirely in keeping with our increasingly Jewish way of thinking to invent a new word, analogous to anti-Semitism, to describe those who hate freedom. “Anti-libertism” or “libertophobia” are awkward constructions, but with enough repetition, Americans could be trained to believe that all attacks on the United States are just vicious, irrational acts of “anti-libertism” to be forcibly put down. Acts of “anti-libertism” obviously would be the work of maniacs rather than rational men acting on real grievances.

    In fact, the word is unnecessary. We already have the word we need. Only America stands with Israel in a world filled with anti-Semites. Only the United States defended Israel when it bombed what it said was a terrorist camp in Syria in retaliation for a Palestinian suicide bombing in October. Only the United States and its client states — Micronesia and the Marshall Islands — voted with Israel against a UN General Assembly resolution in September urging Israel to withdraw its threat to “remove” Yasser Arafat. No fewer than 133 nations voted the other way. In 2001, when delegates to a conference on racism in South Africa criticized Israel, only the Americans walked out in solidarity with Israel. It is no surprise that the Arab world sees America and Israel as joint enemies. Muslims burn American flags at the same rallies at which they burn Israeli flags, and chant “death to America” with almost as much as passion as they chant “death to Israel.”

    Mr. Bush may as well announce that American and Israeli interests really are indistinguishable, and that attacks on the United States are really attacks on Israel, motivated by the same blinkered hatreds. Let us therefore use the word that most readily comes to mind, and recognize that those who hate us are, first and foremost, anti-Semites and that hatred of America is simply another form of “the longest hatred.” More than ever, in our thinking and in our behavior, we are all Jews now.

Therefore, the Talmudic crybabies/history revisionists are trying to go back to the dead Yinon Plan by attempting to use and eventually throw the Kurds under the bus through another regional brushfire.

    It is important to distinguish between American Jews as a class and its (self-appointed!) leadership. The American Jewish community as a whole is moderate and reasonable.

    It’s a big club…and maybe that should give you pause.

    How many countries have the Jews been expelled from? How many people, nations, and movements dislike Israel and the Jews?

    What is it they say…“… the only common denominator in all of your failed relationships is you.”

    Read the book “when Jews became white” which is taught in graduate level courses. Chomsky also states that the rich and influential segment of Jewish population in the West, broke with the progressive Jewish tradition in the 20th century and sided with the oppressors. Neocons as
