A quite incredible story out of England has not received much media coverage in the United States. It concerns how the Israeli Embassy in London connived with government officials to “take down” parliamentarians and government ministers who were considered to be critical of the Jewish State. It was also learned that the Israeli Embassy was secretly subsidizing and advising private groups promoting Israeli interests, including associations of Members of Parliament (MPs). The story is interesting on several levels, particularly given the recent furor in the U.S. over allegations that Russia has been interfering in American politics.

By way of comparison, though no evidence has been provided to support the claim, Russia allegedly arranged for a hack into the Democratic National Committee server to obtain factual information potentially embarrassing to the Hillary Clinton campaign. The information was then made public and may have influenced how some Americans voted.

Compare that to what has been going on meanwhile in Britain, where an Israeli Embassy diplomat named Shai Masot, “an officer in the Israel Defense Forces and…serving as a senior political officer at the London Embassy,” was meeting with Maria Strizzolo, a senior British civil servant who was formerly chief of staff to Conservative parliamentarian and ardent Zionist Robert Halfon. Masot is certainly an intelligence officer under diplomatic cover. Masot and Strizzolo’s candid discussion, which was secretly recorded by al-Jazeera, related specifically to getting rid of Foreign Office Minister Sir Alan Duncan, regarded as a supporter of an independent Palestinian state.

To Masot’s additional query “Can I give you some MPs that I would suggest you would take down?” Strizzolo suggested “…if you look hard enough, I’m sure there is something that they’re trying to hide…a little scandal maybe.” Another alleged pro-Arab member of Parliament Crispin Blunt was also identified, with Strizzolo confirming that he was on a “hit list.”

It was also learned that Masot had been secretly subsidizing and advising two ostensibly independent groups, the parliamentary Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI) and the Labour Friends of Israel (LFI). Masot did, however, express concern that Israel’s control over incoming parliamentarians was not quite what it used to be: “For years, every MP that joined the parliament joined the LFI. They’re not doing that any more in the Labour Party. CFI, they’re doing it automatically. All the 14 new MPs who got elected in the last elections did it automatically.”

Shai Masot also was working with friendly young British Jews, providing them with jobs at his embassy and then seeding them into positions in advocacy organizations where they continued to be paid secretly by him while promoting positions that would protect Israel from any criticism. One such group is Britain’s National Union of Students (NUS). Recently there has been somewhat of a furor over Shakira Martin, a vice president in the group, who accepted an all-expenses paid trip to Israel organized by the Union of Jewish Students, a pro-Israel organization which is among those receiving funding and guidance from the Israeli embassy in London. The al-Jazeera tape has also revealed that Richard Brooks, another NUS vice president, had been plotting with pro-Israel activists to remove elected NUS president Malia Bouattia, a supporter of Palestinian rights and the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement.

It does not require much in the way of imagination to realize that the Masot meetings probably occur every day right out in the open in Washington, including Israeli officials and Congressmen as well as heads of political advocacy organizations and lobbies. The list of prominent politicians “taken down” by Israel is lengthy, and includes Cynthia McKinney, Adlai Stevenson III, Paul Findley, Chuck Percy, William Fulbright, Roger Jepsen, and Pete McCloskey. And a similar situation prevails in the U.S. regarding human rights and politically liberal organizations that are ostensibly privately funded. As Jeff Blankfort has noted, they are frequently headed by American Jews who prove quite willing to criticize the United States but are generally reluctant to say anything bad about Israel. Whether they are actually directly or indirectly on the Israeli government payroll would be an interesting project for a good investigative journalist.

One might reasonably consider Israel’s interference in the democratic process in friendly countries like the U.K. and U.S. as much farther reaching and damaging than anything Moscow has done. Yet Russia is being excoriated by the U.S. and European media daily, investigated by Congress and sanctioned because of what are little more than unproven allegations. Israel has clearly done some things to interfere with local politics that are arguably much worse and the silence is deafening. So one should not be surprised by the toothless British reaction to the suggestion that its government officials might be removed by the clandestine activity of a foreign country: “The Israeli ambassador has apologized…the UK has a strong relationship with Israel and we consider the matter closed.”

Britain under its new Prime Minister Theresa May has also been rolling over in response to Israel’s perceived interests almost as obsequiously as the U.S. Congress. After Secretary of State John Kerry described Israel’s government as “extreme right wing” on December 28th, May sprang to Tel Aviv’s defense, saying “we do not believe that it is appropriate to attack the composition of the democratically elected government of an ally. We are also clear that the settlements are far from the only problem in this conflict. In particular, the people of Israel deserve to live free from the threat of terrorism, with which they have had to cope for too long.”

May’s rejoinder could have been written by Netanyahu, and maybe it was. Two weeks later, her government cited “reservations” over a French government sponsored mid-January Middle East peace conference and would not sign a joint statement calling for a negotiated two-state solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict after Netanyahu vociferously condemned the proceedings.

It all recalls Pat Buchanan’s description of the U.S. Congress as an Israeli occupied zone, which raised holy hell at the time even though Buchanan did not go far enough judging by what has been happening in Britain. Indeed, lobbying on behalf of Israel is a global phenomenon with organizations like the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) existing in various forms in a number of other countries. BICOM, the Britain Israel Communications and Research Centre, is an AIPAC clone located in London. It is well funded and politically powerful, working through its various “Friends of Israel” proxies. Americans might be surprised to learn that in Britain Jewish organizations uniquely are allowed to patrol heavily Jewish London neighborhoods in police-like uniforms while driving police type vehicles and there have been reports of their threatening Muslims who enter the areas.

Indeed, wherever one goes – Western Europe, Canada, Australia, New Zealand and the United States – there is a well-organized and funded mechanism in place ready, willing and able to go to war to protect Israel. Most of the organizations involved take at least some direction from officials in Tel Aviv. Many of them even cooperate fully with the Israeli government, its parastatal organizations and faux-NGOs like the lawfare center Shurat HaDin. Their goal is to spread propaganda and influence the public in their respective countries of residence to either hew to the line coming out of Tel Aviv or to confuse the narrative and stifle debate when potential Israeli crimes are being discussed.

Israel’s diaspora allies are backed up by a formidable government organized machine that spews out disinformation and muddies the waters whenever critics surface. The Israeli Foreign Ministry has a corps of paid “volunteers” who monitor websites worldwide and take remedial action and there is a similar group working out of the Prime Minister’s office. That is why any negative story appearing in the U.S. or Britain about Israel is immediately inundated with pro-Israel comments, many of which make exactly the same coordinated points while exhibiting the same somewhat less than perfect English. On sites like Yahoo they are actually able to suppress unwelcome comments by flooding the site with “Dislike” responses. If a comment receives a large number of dislikes, it is automatically blocked or removed.

The sayanim, local Jews in their countries of residence, are essential to this process, having been alerted by emails from the Israeli Foreign Ministry about what to do and say. The reality is that Israel has lost the war of public opinion based on its own actions, which are becoming more and more repressive and even inhumane and so are difficult to explain. That means that the narrative has to be shifted by Israel’s friends through subterfuge and the corruption of the information and political processes in each country. In some places the key media and political players who are engaged in the process can simply be bought. In other places like England they can be intimidated or pressured into taking positions that are neither in their own countries’ interests nor morally acceptable. In large countries like the United States, Britain and France a combination of friendly suasion and coercive elements often come together.

In some extreme cases the game Israel plays is brutal. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu recently warned New Zealand that backing a U.N. resolution condemning Israeli settlements would be a “declaration of war.” In all cases, the objective is the same: to repress completely, discourage or misrepresent any criticism of Israel and to block any initiatives that might be taken that would do damage either to the Israeli economy or to the country’s perceived standing in the world. In some countries including the U.S. and Britain, Israel’s advocates work their subversion of local institutions right out in the open and are highly successful in implementing policies that often remain largely hidden but that can be discerned as long as one knows what to look for.

  1. Wasn’t it a past British government that made the original deal with Zionist to carve the state of Israel out of Palestine in exchange for Jewish Zionists lobbying the US to join Britain in their war with Germany during WW1?

    The deal was partially explained in the Balfour Declaration.

    The British Balfour Declaration is the font of Israeli trouble making.

    What goes around comes around.

  3. Amazing Isn’t it how closely the Israelis mirror the methods of the old USSR. Blackmail, disinformation, front groups and I particularly note the “seeding” of young operatives into establishment positions. Sounds a lot like the neocons as well. A certain historic lineage on view for all to see here.

    The zionist element have been at work spoiling the British press of the right for a good while now. The Spectator, the Telegraph and the TLS all hew the line.

    Only a public crackdown on all sources of foreign influence in our politics will curtail this. And it must not be done in a manner that leaves doubt who the main culprits are.

    My prediction is that while Trump is dancing a waltz with the Israelis now, he will soon discover that they always cheat on their end of the deal. When that happens, we may hope he does the right thing. At least that will be his strong inclination.

    I hope that President Trump doesn’t allow himself to be unduly influenced by Israel and its supporters. Israel is a big problem, both for itself and the U.S., and religiously hyperbolic references to Jerusalem as its ‘eternal capital’ are worrisome.
    The best thing for people who identify as Jews is to emigrate and assimilate into western civilization, as the religious and political climate in the mideast will only bring continued danger and conflict for themselves and for the entire world.
    The U.S. does not need an ‘ally’ in the mideast which is dedicated to people of one religion and is thus a lightning rod for religious and ethnic hatred by the benighted cultures surrounding it. We need to stay out of the mideast – except for a robust diplomatic and intelligence network, in conjunction with a strong military here at home capable of protecting us from any aggression that may be directed toward our country.
    Israel has done a wonderful job solving the technical problems encountered in carving a country out of a desert, but the idea of a nation dedicated to a religion was flawed from the start. What they defend militarily, and would like the U.S. to as well, is doomed. Not only dangerous, wasteful and ultimately unwinnable in a practical sense, the fight to establish and preserve this kind of state is ethically indefensible.

  7. Another great article, Phil. I hope Trump looks to you for advice.

    In all cases, the objective is the same: to repress completely, discourage or misrepresent any criticism of Israel and to block any initiatives that might be taken that would do damage either to the Israeli economy or to the country’s perceived standing in the world.

    Far more insidious than any overt threat from Muslim invaders, the pervasive and covert infiltration of all levels of society by Israeli interests is going to be a formidable challenge to overcome. But, as AIPAC is fond of saying internally, a night flower wilts in sunlight. It is incumbent upon us to pour as much sunlight as we can everywhere to rout the vermin in our midst before they destroy us completely. As it is, the continued damage to our country is near-fatal.

    Israel’s diaspora allies are backed up by a formidable government organized machine that spews out disinformation and muddies the waters whenever critics surface. The Israeli Foreign Ministry has a corps of paid “volunteers” who monitor websites worldwide and take remedial action

    We see them everywhere, and we certainly recognize the “regular” hasbarats that are embedded here among the commenters at Unz Review. You know who they are – a number of them will pop up to call Phil an antisemite shortly. The Israeli Megaphone Project has already been active for a while, polluting blogs everywhere, causing important conversations about the Israeli occupation of our government to be drowned out by a cacophony of pre-formatted talking points that are readily cut-and-pasted from professionally published “manuals” by the Israeli government.

    On sites like Yahoo they are actually able to suppress unwelcome comments by flooding the site with “Dislike” responses. If a comment receives a large number of dislikes, it is automatically blocked or removed.

    This is a clear violation of our right to freedom of expression. I welcome a vigorous debate between the Israelis/Israel-firsters and the rest of us in any forum. However, shutting down our ability to speak and express our criticism of the corruption of our government by malevolent Jewish power mongers suppresses our human rights and is an affront to our democratic ways. In much of Europe, it is considered antisemitic to criticize Israel or Zionism, even if the object of criticism are actions rather than people. Jewish institutions such as the Holocaust Industry are completely taboo, and revisionism is treated as criminal offenses in many countries. These same people deflect criticism to other countries such as Iran and sow the seeds of Islamophobia because a distracted populace with alternate targets and false flags is easy to control, as is evident if we look around us today. As many have said before me, the truth does not need legislation to protect it, as truth is self-evident. If revisionism is false, it should be easy to debunk, but it is never provided the opportunity to be openly debated, and anyone attempting to do so is immediately characterized as an antisemite, or worse, a clansman or white supremacist (even if they are non-white jews).

    If we are to survive as our founders intended us to, we have to uproot this scourge from our land and add Israel to the list of countries that are banned from entering the US. Moreover, we have to chop off the long arm of the Mossad with tentacles throughout our way of life, such as the handling of our phone bills by the likes of Israeli corporations like Amdocs.

    The sayanim, local Jews in their countries of residence, are essential to this process, having been alerted by emails from the Israeli Foreign Ministry about what to do and say

    While it may be difficult to detect and uproot all the sayanim in this country, a good place to start would be to remove all dual passport holders from our government. If you seek a position in our politics and our governance, your loyalties have to exclusively be with the US, and you can not have allegiance to any other princes or potentates. This is harder to do than it sounds. Any Jew in this country can immediately become a citizen of Israel, so even if they renounce their Israeli citizenship, it can be reinstated on demand, so it is not a sufficient deterrent to require a single citizenship.

    When the infestation reaches the proportions that it has in this country, eradication of the pestilence is fraught with dangers and threats to our own constitution. It can easily devolve into witch hunts like McCarthyism and many innocents can be caught up in the net along with the devious culprits. It is a case where the medicine can kill the patient.

    What are we to do? That is not a rhetorical question.

    @annamaria

    That was quick annamaria! I read the two new articles that seemed worthwhile on Counterpunch earlier this evening, by Cockburn and Fisk. Neither was too convincing.

    The article at that link has some real interest, much known, but a few points not, either did not or had long forgotten the A, B, C classification of the occupied territories.

    I’ve said it before, but a two-state solution is obvious:the Israelis living on land where traditional, Ottoman, or Jordanian title held, and they have simply seized it, pay. The settlers become Jewish Palestinians.

    This doesn’t work where Palestinians were forced out with unfair payments and pressure, nor does anything to regain land from sales by traitor Palestinians at not-unreasonable prices.

    So, in the end, you have a Jewish state with an Isaeli-Arab minority, and a Palestinian state with a Palestinian-Jewish minority.

    Hell, the settlers are much closer in spirit and culture to the less-reasonable Muslim Palestinians than to many Jews.

    Voila, the neo-two-state solution!

    Of course, also agreeing with your own comments here.

This from the country that forces certain (if not most) visitors landing at Ben Gurion Airport to open up their Gmail and Facebook accounts so a bunch of IDF thugs can rifle through them in an effort to detect even the faintest whiff of anti-Semitism. And if you tell them to take a hike, you will be on the next flight back to your country of origin. This must be that renowned Jewish sense of humor at work.

    Of course his posture so far has been extremely pro Netanyahu – but when you consider what else he has undertaken to do to “drain the swamp” he is clearly already in imminent danger of impeachment or assassination – naturally he could never have been president had he voiced the slightest criticism of Israel, any more than he could expect to keep the job (and possibly his life) if he did so now. The forlorn hope is that he has an agenda in his back pocket: maybe, for example, his moving of the embassy to Jerusalem will come with the condition that ‘greater’ Israel becomes one state with all citizens having equal rights – that might give Bibi a severe case of indigestion!

When asked basic questions about the I/P conflict and the Mideast she was shockingly ignorant. When asked if she ever read any books about Israel she was only able to cite two books that were written by noted anti-Israel extremists.

    Rather than conceding her lack of knowledge Tonge later claimed that she was “caught in a trap”.

There is a point that which almost all “Vichy” U.S. politicians will not go beyond: the Israeli entitlement to slaughter goyim at will. Even the “liberal” Elizabeth Warren will not challenge this Israeli “God given right”.

    Here is the location of the Israeli embassy within DC’s embassy district, adjacent to the embassies of Malaysia and Pakistan across the road to the North, China to the East, and Bangladesh to the South.

    No surprise there. Plenty of ignorance all around. Some of the most ignorant, in fact, are those who support the sadistic mafia State (sorry for the redundancy) including both well meaning Jews and goyim, especially their “leadership.”

  33. Very good article, Philip. Indeed, Israel subterfuge and manipulation is ubiquitous in American life and beyond. It’s ‘who we are’. Pan-Zionist values and taboos are at the heart of political correctness. They permeate Western civilization.

    So speak out against racism and anti-Semitism!

    Similarly, the vaunted value of Jewish safety has embedded itself deeply into the American mind. Politically, it expresses itself via heightened sensitivities (guilt), fixed language taboos, entrenched double-standards, minority worship (and the negation of white interests), and Zio-centric foreign policies that produce serial wars of aggression.

    Jews have suffered enough!

    Zionist values dictate how people talk and think and it even informs them of what not to say. They deeply influence our entire way of life. This indoctrination is ongoing. Just turn on your TV.

    Stop the racism and hate and bigotry!

    Most thoughtful Americans understand this–at least subconsciously–and they act accordingly, via self-censorship and political accommodation.

    Never forget!

    Americans avoid looking directly into the face of Jewish power. After all, it doesn’t really exist, right? It’s a conspiracy theory.

    It was much subtler and more complicated. Balfour was himself a Christian Zionist (as Wikipedia might put it “citation needed”) and the wording was watered right down partly under the influence of the Jewish Cabinet minister Edwin Samuel Montagu who opposed it. It never involved “carving the state of Israel out of Palestine”. It is also a very far fetched interpretation to suggest that it is “the font of Israeli trouble making” in Britain today and thus some kind of just retribution. No need to complicate things. Today Israel needs support in the UN and friends wherever they can be found and that, not some mystical connection to Arthur Balfour is what inspires its PR and private lobbying and influence.

    Why Did the Al-Jazeera Expose Fail? By Gilad Atzmon

    [MORE]

    “The Lobby”, the Al-Jazeerah expose of the Israeli Embassy and the Jewish Lobby infiltration into British politics is a landmark in journalism. It seems that Qatari TV outsmarted Israeli intelligence in the UK and beyond.

    In the program, an undercover journalist named ‘Robin’ managed to infiltrate into the corridors of the Jewish lobby in Britain, secured the trust of a senior Israeli intelligence officer and, most importantly, managed to reveal the depths of Israeli interference in British politics.

    We learned how Israel and its lobby plot against Britain and the Brits. In the program, Shai Masot, an Israeli official was caught on camera conspiring to “bring down” a British minister.

    We learned how our own treacherous MPs shamelessly serve a foreign power and foreign interests. In Episode 3 we witness British politicians and Israeli lobbyists such as MP Joan Ryan caught on camera smearing a Labour voter as an ‘anti-Semite’, and practically conspiring against her own party. Ms Ryan does it all for the Jewish state, a state with a horrid record on human rights and war crimes. I wonder what is it that motivates MP Ryan? Is it greed, or is it just power seeking?

    The Brits should certainly ask themselves how come it is left to a Qatari TV network to reveal the shocking news about their democracy being taken over by a foreign Lobby. Should this not be the concern for the BBC or the Guardian? And even after the Al-Jazeera expose, the British media remained silent and the question must be asked: would it have stayed as silent had Shai Masot been a Russian? Would it have stayed as silent if MP Joan Ryan was exposed as an Iranian lobbyist?

    But Al-Jazeera fell into an all-too-common trap. Troubled by its own findings, it tried to soften them with the usual politically correct fluff. Instead of concentrating on the British aspect of this saga and allowing the Brits to speak for themselves, Al-Jazeera allowed an Israeli – academic Ilan Pappe to speak for us. Similarly, Jackie Walker, certainly a victim of the Israeli campaign was also asked, “as a Jew” (as well as a Black person), to spell out for us her own identitarian philosophy. All other commentators on the Israeli espionage operation came from recognised Palestinian solidarity perspectives. Despite the fact that the dirty dealings of the Israeli Embassy and the treason of members of the Israeli lobby groups in Britain is a clear offence against British sovereignty and the British people, only one Brit, journalist Peter Oborne, addressed the offence from a clear British perspective.

    This is wrong. “The Lobby” exposed, above all, a gross interference with British sovereignty, a crude intrusion into the British democratic process and government. Al-Jazeera failed because it turned this British national tragedy into an internal Jewish dispute.

    For obvious reasons, Al Jazeera chose not to delve into the deep, cultural meaning of the Israeli operation. Israel is, above all, the Jewish state and, as I have mentioned many times before, plotting against other people’s regimes is deeply embedded in Judaic teaching and Jewish culture. It is in practice the message of The Book of Esther, which teach the Jews how toconspire against their rulers and, by proxy, to win over their enemies. You can read The Book Of Esther for yourselves (it’s pretty short and very entertaining): http://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/jsource/Bible/Esther.html

    Shai Masot was no junior embassy employee as claimed. He was a senior intelligence officer operating from the safety and immunity of its embassy on behalf of the Jewish state. He was working alongside Israeli Ambassador Mark Regev and the two are seen together in the film, sitting side by side, addressing various Jewish lobby groups. Shai Masot has been recalled and, I understand, is currently seeking other employment. Mark Regev should now be expelled and the matter must be investigated by MI5.

    When Chucky condemns America about Arab immigrants – everyone knows that he is totally against immigration of Arabs in Israel. The dichotomy is glaring. One question leads to another – and one answer leads to the truth of the whole situation.

    Every time Chucky Israel says no to Trump, major numbers of people are going to see “obnoxious NY JEW stomping on America” flashing across the screen. Contempt for Jews is growing in the American middle class.

    The Gentile American elite are another matter – they are victims of Jew terror. The Jews have them by the gonads. Their public lives are always dependent on Jew approval. They all experience the terror – some knowingly and gladly take the perks and goodies – others in true Stockholm fashion actually sympathize with their Jew terrorists. In the last 50 years, maybe 5 America elite have object to the Jew terror.

    The wall had nothing to do with African immigrants, it was built during the Second Intifada and its purpose was to keep Palestinians out of Israel. Conveniently, in many areas they built the wall across the Green Line essentially confiscating more Palestinian the land.

    The Israelis have no problem to deport African immigrants. They even offered them $3,500 cash and a one-way ticket home or, alternatively, they could choose prison.

    The fact that there is a permanent underclass in Israel that has a higher living standard than those in their home country doesn’t exactly make Israel “a light unto the nations”. In fact it is eerily similar to Israel’s secret ally, Saudi Arabia. They have much in common.

    Unfortunately Annamaria, America’s FP decision-making system is even more ridiculous than that:

    She, [Stephanie Schriock of Emily’s List], then explained how congressional candidates’ views on Israel are determined by the need to raise money from pro-Israel Jews.

    I started as a finance director. I worked for candidates in the 90’s as their finance director. And I would come on a congressional race, I am a twenty-something kid who also knows nothing beyond the state borders, let alone overseas, and you thought about where you are going to go to raise the money that you needed to raise to win a race. And you went to labor, you went to the choice community, and you went to the Jewish community. But before you went to the Jewish community, you had a conversation with the lead AIPAC person in your state and they made it clear that you needed a paper on Israel. And so you called all of your friends who already had a paper on Israel – that was designed by AIPAC – and we made that your paper.

    This was before there was a campaign manager, or a policy director or a field director because you got to raise money before you do all of that. I have written more Israel papers that you can imagine. I’m from Montana. I barely knew where Israel was until I looked at a map, and the poor campaign manager would come in, or the policy director, and I’d be like, ‘Here is your paper on Israel. This is our policy.’ We’ve sent it all over the country because this is how we raise money. … This means that these candidates who were farmers, school teachers, or businesswomen, ended up having an Israel position without having any significant conversations with anybody…

    By Salah Zakkour, Press Release:

    We, members of the Syrian American community, wholeheartedly support Congresswoman Tulsi Gabbard’s courageous fact-finding trip to Syria in January. With this trip Rep. Gabbard demonstrated her strong commitment and determination to bringing about an end to all forms of support by the United States Government and its allies to the extremists and terrorists who have been destroying Syria and other countries of the Middle East during the past several years.

    Rep. Gabbard’s trip to Syria was only a logical next step toward gathering the necessary first hand information in support of her similarly courageous bi-partisan bill, the Stop Arming Terrorists Act. We consider her trip a significant step toward ending the U.S. government’s illegal policy of forced regime change in other countries, including Syria, with the help of extremist and terrorist groups. We urge all other members of Congress to follow Rep. Gabbard’s steps in order to directly see for themselves what is really happening in Syria, instead of relying on dubious information and fake news that is being fabricated by all those who are bent on overthrowing the Syrian government. Those people are blatantly ignoring the wishes of the majority of the Syrian people and closing their eyes to the humanitarian catastrophe it has created.

    Yes that would be the Landman Document but the Brits promised the Palestinians independence as early as 1915 (McMahon-Hussein Correspondence) & 1939 (White Paper).

    “Future of the Middle East – United Pan-Arab States By Sam A. Cohen (2014)
    Chapter 8: Palestine
    History: In 1917, the House of Rothschild and the international banking community, which was dominated by Jews, sent a letter on behalf of the recently formed Zionist movement to His Majesty’s government asking the British to designate Palestine, an area that came into possession of the british at the end of the first world war, as a homeland for the Jewish people. As a quid pro quo they offered to use their considerable Jewish influence to bring America into the war of the side of the allies. The British response came in the form of a letter from the British Foreign Secretary Arthur James Balfour, known as the Balfour Declaration.
    Britain did not own Palestine and had NO rights to establish anything for anybody there. No one had consulted the Palestinians or the Arabs for that matter before sending this declaration. At the end of the war the British were humiliated when the Anglo-American zionists published this threatening warning:
    Landman Document 1918 – Anglo-American Zionists published a threatening warning to the British Government by means of the Landman document. Addressing the British Government as if they were speaking to an equal, they said in effect:
    “You forget that you did not give us Palestine as an unsolicited gift (Balfour Declaration). It was handed over as the result of a secret bargain concluded between ourselves. We have scrupulously observed our part in bringing America into the war on your side. We call on you to fulfil your obligations in turn. You are aware of our power in the United States: take care that you do not attract the hostility of Israel, otherwise you will come up against grave international difficulties.”

    He has named former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani as an (informal) adviser on US cybersecurity. He was happy to take on the appointment , and according to a Wall Street Journal article, January 28-29, 2017, Rudy Giuliani said, “Solving cyberdefense is a passion of mine.”

    Not only is it the right thing to do, but every country has a positive obligation to ferret out all the information it possibly can on what its potential enemies are doing, as well as what its allies might be doing.

    Seriously, think about this: Would you want our government to intentionally not know what Israel is up to?

    Why would you expect any other country, including Israel, not to do the same? Have you forgotten that Obama had to apologize to Merkel when we got caught tapping her phone? Does anyone serious think we stopped tapping her phone?

    I’m as idealistic as the next guy. But there comes a time when you have to stop having a snowflake-style freak-out every time you learn Israel did something like this. We do it. They do it. Everyone does it. And it’s an essential part of running a competent government in any country.

    Zionist Terrorism and Imperial Response
    British Policies towards Jewish Resistance in Palestine 1944-1948
    (pdf)

    As a result of the First World War, Great Britain became the mandatory power for Palestine and governed the territory de facto as a part of her Empire. However, she did not only enjoy the country’s amenities but was also confronted with the internal conflicts of the population.

    Due to the emergence of Zionism and National Socialism, Jewish immigration to the Holy Land increased exponentially. Whereas the Jews longed for their own state, the Arabs feared becoming the minority in Palestine. Therefore, Arabs as well as Jews tried to vie for the support of both the British as well as that of the international community. The Empire, on the other hand, chose to act as a mediator and engaged in the finding of a peaceful solution acceptable for both sides.

    Apart from the political aspect, Jewish and Arab extremists used violent methods and rebelled against the mandatory power with differing outcomes. Whereas the Great Arab Revolt was resolutely quelled by the Empire in the 1930’s, the Jewish efforts were more successful and not as easily put down.
    From 1944 onwards, several Jewish underground organisations launched a terrorist campaign which in fact lasted until the British announcement to withdraw from Palestine in 1948.

    Until its very last days in Palestine, the Empire found no appropriate policy either to break up the [zionist terrorist] underground or at least to stop the attacks on military and civilian targets.

    To label McCarthyism as a Witch Hunt is a gross mischaraterization, and seems out of tune with the rest of your generally good comment, Mr. Cloak & Dagger.

    By now, even the most casual student of 20th century history should know that the American establishment was riddled with Reds from at least the 1930s up through the 1950s, after which they slipped away or transmogrified, aided in their escape by the successful demonization of Wisconsin Sen. Joe McCarthy in the mass media, with the likes of Edward R. Murrow leading the way.

    Tail-gunner Joe McCarthy had the Reds dead to rights, yet it was he who was demonized and ultimately discredited, while the Commies all slithered away. How did it happen?

    It has been said that Major D. D. Eisenhower was a protégé of Jewish financier Bernard Baruch. Perhaps that circumstance might account for Ike’s meteoric rise past any number of more experienced senior officers to be named Supreme Allied Commander.

    Eisenhower himself had been described in his West Point yearbook as “That terrible Swedish Jew.”

    (Moving quickly now, please hang on…)

    With the death of EMCC’s chairman and chief financial backer Harry L. Straus in a plane crash on October 25, 1949, EMCC was sold to typewriter maker Remington Rand on February 15, 1950. Eckert and Mauchly now reported to Leslie Groves, the retired army general who had managed the Manhattan Project.

    The most famous UNIVAC product was the UNIVAC I mainframe computer of 1951, which became known for predicting the outcome of the U.S. presidential election the following year. This incident is particularly noteworthy because the computer predicted an Eisenhower landslide when traditional pollsters all called it for Adlai Stevenson.

    –Wikipedia

    (My bold)

    How could a cheesy POS like UNIVAC I predict anything, let alone an election, with its paltry 1K of memory?

    Anyway, for those who figured or were hoping that this was going somewhere, your effort is not in vain:

    President Dwight Eisenhower masterminded the downfall of the anti-Communist demagogue Senator Joseph McCarthy.

    https://www.amazon.com/Ike-McCarthy-Eisenhowers-Campaign-against/dp/1451686609

    “David Nichols, one of the premier scholars of the Dwight Eisenhower presidency, has turned upside down the overwhelming consensus that Joseph McCarthy self-destructed while the president watched passively. Nichols’s compelling narrative illustrates how Ike led the charge to destroy McCarthy, fundamentally changing the historical record.”

    (Review by Irwin F. Gellman, author of The President and the Apprentice)

    Of course, Ike let Stalin take Berlin. Ike also called in the 101st Airborne to enforce integration of Little Rock Central in 1957, after Arkansas Gov. Orville Fauvus had used the Arkansas National Guard to surround LRC to prevent its integration.

    And even today, people who should know better are still repeating the shopworn myth that McCarthyism was a witch hunt.

    That’s not worthy of you. Cynicism/realism is fair enough but you could be logically tighter and more precise. I refer only in passing to the omission of “inconsistent” in your description of the hypothetical promises. More important is the question whether promises were made at all. And if there were promises whether anyone was entitled to say they were clear enough for the disappointed party to be able to persuade a fair minded person what the promiser should have done but hasn’t. As I read in the #106 link the text of the Balfour declaration had been negotiated over many months by a lot of legal and other professionally subtle minds. It doesn’t seem to come down to anything as crude as “the occupied territories” v. “occupied territories” but it could be said that, if the Brits didn’t try to provide for some Jewish immigration to Palestine while maintaining law and order then Zionist Jews had grounds for complaint – despite the strong opposition by anti-Zionist Jews to creating a race based nation. My impression is tbat the Brits behaved honourably vis-a-vis Jews, hadn’t made any relevant promises to France not subsumed in the 1919 peace settlement but grossly underestimated the problems they were going to have with Arabs spread around the old Ottoman provinces.

    Considering your worries about Israel’s independence from the US, the best way (for the US) would be an immediate stop to the enormous redistribution of the US money&power to Israel. Two actions are sorely needed: the expulsion of all dual-citizens from US government (what is their primary allegiance, btw?) and replacing the state infusion of money from US to Israel with the private donations from the US Jews that love Israel but only from afar.

Still a million of unemployed that do not receive unemployment benefits. It’s beginning to look like Mr Donald Trump will be the best president that this country has ever had. Already in two weeks he has done more for the US than Obama and any other president that comes to mind has done in four or eight years.

    “The commander of US forces in Europe, General Ben Hodges, has lined up tanks on Poland’s border with Russia and fired salvos that the general says are a message to Russia, not a training exercise.”

    I guess Lemnitzer’s ghost lives on…

    On 20th July, 1961, at a National Security Council meeting, Lemnitzer presented Kennedy with an official plan for a surprise nuclear attack on the Soviet Union.

    On 13th March, 1962, General Lemnitzer presented Robert McNamara with a top-secret memo, urging President Kennedy to order a variety of shocking incidents to create a rationale for invading Cuba. Code named Operation Northwoods, the memo suggested that the administration should arrange a terror campaign in Miami and Washington that would create international revulsion against the government of Fidel Castro.

    Hey, Sam. Jew-phobia? Really? As you well know, I have neither hate nor fear of you or your coreligionists. On the contrary, I am awe-inspired by the raw power of organized Jewry. It is not a trivial thing to establish a powerful Lobby that is feared by most elected officials. Need proof? How about this quote from former SOD Chuck Hagel:

    “The Jewish Lobby intimidates a lot of people,” declared Hagel in 2008, “Most of the time members play it safe and adopt an ‘I’ll support Israel’ attitude. AIPAC comes knocking with a pro-Israel letter, and then you’ll get 80 to 90 senators on it. I don’t think I’ve ever signed one of the letters…I’m a United States senator. I’m not an Israeli senator.”

    No, Sam. It’s not fear that motivates me. My sole purpose is to expose the machinations of the night flower in the hope that one day it will wilt. Here’s one of my earlier posts here at Unz, which demonstrates this:

    Look, you can pretend all you want that you can’t see the 800 lb gorilla in the room, but thanks to the tremendous efforts of Mearsheimer & Walt, Justin Raimondo, Phil Giradli, Paul Findley, Ray McGovern, and Alison Weir, more and more Americans are realizing the Israel Firsters are putting the interests of a foreign country ahead of their own.

    I seem to recall both Dershowitz and Hoenlein who, attending a Herzilya conference, suggested that the days of Israel’s dependence on the U.S. were numbered because the American public were “poisoned” by such works as M&W’s book.

    With Nut n’ Yahoo’s upcoming speech to Congress aimed at sabotaging the President’s nuclear negotiations with Iran, more Americans will come to understand that their representatives are beholden to AIPAC and the Israel Lobby. As a result, the days of the special relationship are numbered. The night flower will soon [wilt] regardless of [your] efforts… and [those of] other Hasbarats, who are paid (by the word judging by the length of your posts) to prevent that from happening by pumping out lies!

    You must admit, Sam, more and more people are aware of and discussing the machinations of the 800 lb gorilla than ever before… and that’s a good thing, whether you care to admit it or not.

    I disagree.
    The two advantages of “College or Harvard” are networking with people of influence; and developing skills (not necessarily intelligence or maturity) that offers the ability to apply technic to influential networks and therefore become effective in pursuing goal that managers of that influential community seek to obtain — for themselves.

    The failure of intelligence and maturity, esp. emotional maturity, causes i.e. protesters to fail to notice that they are acting stupidly, and often as not, contrary to their own best advantage.

    Lots of PR pros among the protesters, who can wriggle those thumbs to beat the band; they’ve mastered ‘social media’ and know how to appeal to the masses and sell ice makers to Eskimos, but too stupid to know that someone else is collecting the royalties on the ice makers and collecting revenues from selling the ice to Californians.

    Hi geokat62,

    You might have noticed S2C has a peculiar fixation of matters of a holocaustian bent.

    I think the Lobby (Jewish lobby, Israel lobby, AIPAC, holocaust lobby, ADL — call it what you will, all are part of the 6-part interlocked star system — which is an Assyrian symbol, btw, according to that very useful IHR essay LondonBob mentioned http://www.ihr.org/jhr/v06/v06p389_john.html The Assyrians were highly successful warriors, and cunning: Ken Harl lectures on the Great Ancient Civilizations of Asia Minor. After describing how an Assyrian leader had ginned up a conflict between two other groups in the region, Harl made the off-hand comment “That’s what a smart leader does: get someone else to destroy your enemies for you.” Rube as I was at the time, it was quite an insight.) —

    Anyway, back to holocaustism: I gather the US teevee watching public is being bombarded with Hitler, Nazi, WWII and holocaust programs, and internet as well as hard-copy publishers are adding to the blizzard of holocaust überall and über alles propaganda.

    Smells like desperation to me.

    When an oak tree is dying it puts out tons of acorns to assure its survival. I think we’re witnessing a signal that Quercus L. / holocaustianus is dying.
    The brand is beyond spanking, it’s D E D dead.

    Our task now is to gather up those Quercus L. / Anne Frank nuts and genetically engineer them to be compatible with the family Europus- Americanus.

    —-

    hey — something else from the IHR essay on Balfour Declaration, that LondonBob linked, two things, actually:

    1. Herbert Samuel, a Jewish and zionist member of British parliament, worked hand-in-glove with Chaim Weizmann to secure Palestine for Jews. It was his suggestions that brought about the Sykes Picot agreement.

    2. Prime Minister Asquith was resistant to Samuel’s entreaties on behalf of zionism. Feeling put-upon, he said,

    “I confess that I am not attracted by the proposed addition to our responsibilities, but it is a curious illustration of Dissy’s favorite maxim that race is everything to find this almost lyrical outburst proceeding from the well-ordered and methodical brain of H.S. [Herbert Samuel]“

    “Dissy” is Benjamin Disraeli, a “Christianized Jew” –

    “. . .whose writings on race were profound: they are however ignored by modern historians. In his book Tancred, published by Frederick Warne, London, in 1868, Disraeli wrote: “All is race—there is no other truth” (page 106). And in his book Endymion, published by Longmans, London, he wrote:

    No man will treat with indifference the principle of race. It is the key to history and why history is so often confused is that it has been written by men who were ignorant of this principle and all the knowledge it involves… Language and religion do not make a race—there is only one thing which makes a race, and that is blood. [pages 249-250]”

    https://chechar.wordpress.com/category/benjamin-disraeli/

    Is it fair to speculate that Hitler read Disraeli? Or that the notions Disraeli advocated were ‘in the air,’ and are characterized as “evil” only when associated with Hitler/German intent to protect “race” and “blood?”

  134. @geokat62

    Two quick points:

    Humiliating a congressman or British MP is standard operating procedure for everyone except his own personal cronies. It’s what politicians do, including yours, mine, and everyone’s. Recall the lampooning of Grover Cleveland, “Ma, Ma, where’s my Pa? Gone to the White House, ha, ha, ha.” If it helps your emotions, something like this is being done to Netanyahu and his wife right now — check out some Israeli news. The American Petroleum Institute reported a few days ago that the Russians have been funding the crackpot Gaia people opposing to the pipeline through the Dakotas as well as funding the anti-fracking PR movement. It’s what people do in place of shooting wars.

    Second point: Humiliating a British MP or congressman is better than having the shooting war.

    Welcome to the world after Adam ate the forbidden fruit. Pick your poison. As bad as we all despise politicians, it’s better to have them shamed by spies than to have the rest of us shot at by armies. As somebody somewhere once said, politics is what we do in place of fisticuffs.

    Sam, how surprising that you rely on Trumpian statements and NBC to diagnose Iran’s economic situation, rather than dive into the wealth of economic data that you are so well-trained to discover and interpret.

    Be that as it may —

    I prefer to follow carefully the explanations actual Iranians acquainted with the actual situation had to say about what Iranians thought of the JCPOA, and why they signed. Seyed Hossein Mousavian was a member of Iran’s National Security Council. He discusses US-Iran relations and his book about the topic —

    https://www.c-span.org/video/?320226-1/iran-united-states#

    (tune in at ~55 min. Mousavian is not cowed by US propagandists)

    Iran absorbed the deaths of a million or more of its people & $600billion in damages in a war that US encouraged and that the Saudis financed Saddam to execute. According to Ronen Bergman in “The Thirty Years War,” Israel made out like bandits selling weapons to Iran: “We never considered the ethics of the situation, we just sold, sold, sold, pocketing the profits and letting them kill each other.” (It’s part of that “most moral in the world” thingy.) nb. Saddam’s demand for payment of debts he incurred in that war precipitated Iraq’s invasion of Kuwait, then G H W Bush’s invasion of Iraq, then the starvation of Iraqi children, then the all-out war on Iraq, then ISIS. ALL of which provided benefits & profits to Israelis)

    Iran was attacked with chemical weapons, killing or injuring 100,000 Iranians. EVEN SO, Ayatollah Khomeini refused the requests of Iran’s military leaders to retaliate with chemical weapons: Iran walks the talk.

    If Trump thinks Iran is intimidated by his bluster, or that Iranians are not able to withstand the shit that USA and zionist Israel dishes out on a daily basis, turning it into dignity and self-sufficiency, he should think again, maybe even take a lesson. For Iranians, reality is not a television show.

    Far be it for me, a man of megger intellect, to take on a man who can come up with the words “lugubrious drollery” – especially a Jew.

    The Mossad – the Israeli spy agency’s motto is “by deception we make war.” This says that Israel is at “war” with the world all the time. Perhaps that is why the world is “jew-phoebia.”

    Considering the Jew’s warlike attitude to the world – isn’t it justifiable to be “jew-phoebia.”

    The Jew “projects” his nasty attitude on to the world. The Big Jew cultural leaders indoctrinate their children with the notion that the world hates them and that they must be at war with the world 24/7/365. Has there been a day in the last sixty years that Israel has not been at war with the world?

    This Jew cultural mindset is self-fulfilling. Hate begets hate. It is human nature to abhor being spied on and manipulated by someone who hates you. This is not hard to understand.

    But this magnificently intelligent Jew, just cannot overcome his backwards upbringing. In the argument between nature and nurture – when it comes to the Jews, genetic intellectual nature, loses out to cultural nurture. How how sad!

    Trump’s position on the matter is really framed by Bannon and Flynn. There is an emerging transcontinental alliance which seeks to limit China’s influence in the region and Iran needs to seek a path in the best interest of her young labour force; abstain from posturing through MRBMs, not to mention the myriad other smaller destabilising involvements in the ME. This btw is not just my opinion but that of the large majority of Iranian immigrants in this country. Especially in LA.

    Flynn is essentially a glorified technician in the combat intelligence trade and not a deep thinker. Several of the men appointed to supply Flynn’s staff are men like Flynn. We must remember that when these fellows were promoted to their retirement ranks, promotion rates were very high, too high. Would some of them have been promoted that high in ordinary circumstance? Perhaps they would have been but I have doubts.

    iffen’s Adornoian Nazi personality scale.

    We’ve been down this path before.

    I previously asked you to express your sentiments about this crucial piece of information that M&W brought to light:

    Israel’s enthusiasm for war eventually led some of its allies in America to tell Israeli officials to damp down their hawkish rhetoric, lest the war look like it was being fought for Israel. In the fall of 2002, for example, a group of American political consultants known as the Israel Project circulated a six-page memorandum to key Israelis and pro-Israel leaders in the United States. The memo was titled “Talking about Iraq” and was intended as a guide for public statements about the war. “If your goal is regime change, you must be much more careful with your language because of the potential backlash. You do not want Americans to believe that the war on Iraq is being waged to protect Israel rather than to protect America.”

    but, for some reason, you refused to respond.

    Now correct me if I’m wrong, but one would think most red-blooded Americans would be livid upon learning the so-called GWOT was a phony war. Instead of fighting terrorism, it is really being waged to protect Israelis, not Americans. But wait, wait, here’s the kicker: even though it is being waged to protect Israelis, it is being paid for by the American taxpayer (and his children and his grandchildren and his great grandchildren) and not the Israeli taxpayer who is benefiting from it. And what a bill… $6,000,000,000,000.00 and counting.

    Now, as I say, you would think that most red-blooded Americans would not be pleased if he were to ever see this information plastered on the front pages of the NYT or WaPo, or the TV news networks. Fat chance that happening. So the only Americans I can think of who, when presented with this explosive information, would still support these policies are the Evangelicals, and we all know why… something to do with the rapture and such.

    So, in response to your Adoronian f-scale test, I decided to develop a test of my own. I call it geokat62′s The Dumb Goy scale test or TDG-scale test.

    Spoiler Alert: the evangelicals score very high. Just ask Sam. I can just imagine all The Dumb Goy jokes he and his comrades tell each other while sitting around the dinner table. But in order to get this info out of Sam, we would have to inject him with a truth serum.

    So Saddam was the new Hitler and was demonized every day in the media to the point that most Americans believed he was responsible for 9/11, the Anthrax Attacks, and Global Warming ( forget about the last one, I made that one up).

    How about we make a bet, Sam? I bet the mullahs will be constantly referred to as the new Hitlers. And I bet that the MSM will demonize them every day to the point that most Americans will come to believe that the Mullahs are responsible for 9/11, the Anthrax Attacks, and Global Warming (I’m serious about the last one this time).

    I’m having rather a splendid time watching the nincompoops on CNN trying to outdo each other condemning the POTUS’ recently delivered lashes in the woodshed to Australia’s constipated PM. They should really get on with the programme shouldn’t they?

    After all, everything reduces to the Game doesn’t it? One in which Russia having thought they had finally gotten their man ensconced, just received a jolly good dressing down from Nanny Nikki at the UN. And, they are not upper-class English either for whom a good talking to from Nanny is the very thing they look forward to most. So the negotiations start. There is a method to what appears madness, and Bannon’s the Svengali hypnotist and I do like him!

    Anyway, what of Kushner? I think he stays quiet for the moment until the parameters of the U.S-Russia deal are fully established. Once in place, Netanyahu gets a partial treatment as he has been already told that the recent expansion in Jerusalem and no more.

    Iran will have to stop operating on the basis of whatever deal they thought they had with Barry. There is a new deal.

    Flynn’s dislike of Iran has a very reasonable basis. They act far too big for their britches. Whatever they were a thousand years ago applies no longer and we want a world ruled by well-ordered, well-capitalised nations. A world which seeks lasting equilibrium, commerce and prosperity. On a much smaller scale, the very same is incumbent upon the Pals to observe. That the world, mostly the U.S.-Russia alliance sets very little store by the ill-conceived ambitions of itinerant peoples seeking nationhood, when they’d be better served living as citizens of an already prosperous and viable nation. I think Robin called this Pax Judaica in the Israel. Sure, why not.

    “These anonymous power-brokers are out of their minds if they truly believe that the Russian people will rise up against their own government, overthrow Putin and install an American puppet to rule their country so the vile oligarchs of Wall Street can continue pillaging Russia’s economy and its natural resources as they did so openly under the weak and addled Yeltsin….
    Sure, America would have gone nuts and demanded sanctions against Russia around the entire universe to the end of time. So what? Russia is getting that treatment anyway. In retrospect, perhaps it should have taken care of business just as it did with Georgia. Fuck the EU. Cut off their gas, oil and other trade. Strand the Americans on the international space station. Strand the American troops in Afghanistan. And, go all out to pursue trade exclusively with non-Western countries. It’s not like they didn’t have any other cards to play. And, it’s not like they were treated fairly and respectfully in any way by the American government or its aparatchiks in the EU, NATO or even the UN.
    If America thinks it can up the ante by threatening nuclear war, well, the Russians can play that wild card too. So, either don’t believe their bullshit or just face reality and accept that human beings are suicidal and totally insane. This is how it may well end: a small clique of over-privileged Americans want it ALL and are willing to destroy it ALL if they can’t have it, like a peevish little kid who breaks his toys when told its time to go to bed.”

    You may puff against Iran on some allegedly rational basis, but the sorry truth is, Israel wants to become a Hegemon. Wall Street and MIC want to become a Hegemon. (Do you seriously believe in their pursuit of the “lasting equilibrium, commerce and prosperity?”) And, unfortunately for humanity at large, the ziocons, banksters, and war-profieetrs have made a strong alliance against the future of humanity.

    … just received a jolly good dressing down from Nanny Nikki at the UN

    I wasn’t sure who you were referring to, Sam, so I had to look it up:

    [Nikki] Haley [the new US Ambassador to the UN] has been described by South Carolina Senator Lindsey Graham as a “strong supporter of the State of Israel”. As Governor of South Carolina, she signed into law a bill to stop efforts of the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) movement. This legislation was the first of its kind on a statewide level. Haley also stated that “nowhere has the UN’s failure been more consistent and more outrageous than in its bias against our close ally Israel”.

    https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nikki_Haley

    Now I understand why the use of the term of endearment. With such a strong endorsement from Lindsey, you just know she has a bright future in Washington, DC (District of Corruption).

    A world which seeks lasting equilibrium, commerce and prosperity.

    Ah yes, lasting equilibrium. How did PNAC describe their policy prescription, Sam? That’s right, A Clean Break, A New Strategy for Securing the Realm. Rather than seeking an equilibrium via the outdated notion of land for peace, the authors recommended a different approach, one that might best be described as a disequilibrium… or peace for peace. In plain English, something I know you disdain, it means the following: I will beat you on the head so hard that you will no longer demand land for peace, you will be content accepting peace for peace. All it needed to be successfully implemented was to recruit the top dog of The Dumb Goy to lead the campaign to remove those countries that still supported the legitimate resistance by the rock throwing Pals against the brutal occupation. As former General Wesley Clark informed us. the undisputed leader of The Dumb Goy was directed to take out 7 Muslim countries in 5 years. Now you know why Michael Ledeen admonished the Bush administration “faster please.” He knew that things had to move quickly before The Dumb Goy woke up and caught wind of what was afoot.

    So, we are all eagerly awaiting to see how “the game,” as you put it Sam, will play out. The only 2 pieces left standing are Iran and Russia. I was always intrigued by the fact that you were so enamoured with Trump. Time will tell if you were justified.

    No one, Sam? Forget about my phrase, what about the Yiddish term goyisher kop?

    Here’s an interesting excerpt from Born to Kvetch: Yiddish Language and Culture in All of Its Moods (pp. 66-67):

    No apostate Yiddish speaker would use this phrase, any more than the term goyisher kop, gentile head, would ever be applied to a real non-Jew. Goyisher kop means “idiot,” “simpleton,” as in the old joke about the Jewish convert to Christianity who gets up on the morning after his baptism, puts on tallis and tefillin and starts to daven. “Moyshe,” says his wife, “Host zikh nekhtn opgeshmat, You converted to Christianity yesterday.” Moyshe stops praying, gives himself a slap in the forehead, and cries out, “Goyisher kop!”

    I’m not sure if it’s funny, but it gets the idea across. Goyisher kop is closely related to the synonymous but less common poyersher kop, peasant head, which developed from the German Bauernschädel, peasant—i.e., thick—skull. Aside from their initial letters, Poyersher and goyisher sound quite similar in spoken Yiddish, while Bauer, the German for farmer or peasant, already encompasses all the basic meanings of goy, including the implication of Christianity. And the poyer, the peasant, the Bauer of Bauernschädel, was the type of goy with whom Jews had much of their contact. The widespread Yiddish idea of goyim as stupid seems to owe as much to German ideas about Germans as to Jewish ones, and the goyisher kop probably developed under the influence of the poyersher.

    Not every goy was apoyer, but every poyer was a goy, and to the
    Yiddish speaker they were all Jed Clampett. On the great chain of Yiddish being, gentiles fall somewhere between Francis the Talking Mule and Bigfoot, and goy is almost always as much as to say uneducated, uncouth, uncircumcised—not necessarily good, not necessarily bad, but never anything like one of us.
    To the Jews, whose behavior was hedged in at every turn, goyim seemed creatures of pure instinct, masses of appetite intent on gratification.

    There was no Torah to stand between them and their desires, no system of fences to hinder or defer their satisfaction. As the folk song has it:

    Shikker iz er, He is drunk,
    Trinken miz er, Has no choice but to drink,
    Vayl er iz a goy. Because he is a goy.

    Men, women, and children: they drink, they fight, and they screw. Once in a while they beat up a Jew. And since drinking is drinking and screwing is screwing, goyim are goyim: the politics at play between yid and yidene scarcely exist between the male goy and the female goye. The only real difference is that licentiousness takes a greater toll on women, and the word goye carries with it a whiff of desiccation, a sense of having seen better days. Clark Gable could have been described as a sheyner goy, a handsome non-Jew, but to call Ingrid Bergman—or anybody else—a sheyne goye would make no more sense than saying that she was a goodlooking hag. Ingrid Bergman, Marilyn Monroe—a gentile woman of any age in whom the sap is still running is a shikse, not a goye.

    There, that’s in plain enough Yiddish, eh?

    It is not a good time to be Iran. With the MSM and the servile congress completely controlled by the Israel backing US Jews, Iran is an easy safe logical target to blame for the ME problems. Trump will give Russia a deal they cannot refuse, to abandon Iran. They will break up Syria (an Israeli wet dream) into a Sunni state and an “others” state with a Russian naval base in it.

    It will not be a good time to be Netanyahu. In no way is Trump going to put up with Netanyahu’s BS for very long. Trump campaigned, that his son-in-law was going to fix the Palestine Israel problem. That is anathema to Netanyahu. Of course, this will never happen – and it will make daddy very unhappy. The Palestinians will also be offered a deal they cannot refuse – but in the end, it will be the Jews who will kill the deal.

    On the domestic scene, the Dems look pathetic – Chucky Israel looks like a total obstructionist and Pelosi is living in another century. On most fronts, Trump has the backing of the American people. Clearly the NY Jew feminists and the left-wing rioters are way out of the mainstream of America thought. Success on the business side of things, will be the hardest nut for Trump to conquer.

    Trump’s biggest problem will be his family. His sons and daughter, and wife are not going to be happy. Melania and Ivanka will go MMA before it is over.

    They were so “hot & bothered” about President Putin’s having influenced the 2016 election, and now even after pro-Israeli President Trump and P.M.

The truth will always “Trump” the lies. More Americans are realizing what a problem Israel is to America. The days of the tail wagging the dog are soon to be over.

    FYI, NoseytheDuke: An educated and thoughtful friend (Dean C.) reminded me about the 1993 (terrorist) WTC bombing. Without his trying to knock me off topic, Dean suggested that the ’93 incident gave FEMA the inspiration to create the prophetic 1999 “Self Study For Terrorism” manual cover.

    Dear Miss McKinney, I just want you to know that you along with a few others (e.g., Paul Findlay, Alison Weir, Phillip Giraldi, Justin Raimondo, Ray McGovern, Mearsheimer and Walt) are heroic figures b/c of the sacrifices you were prepared to make for the truth, for justice, and for peace.

    For those who are unaware of the alleged sins The Lobby accused Miss McKinney of committing, here’s the wiki version of events:

    Other factors in her defeat were her controversial statements regarding Bush’s involvement in 9/11, her opposition to aid to Israel, a perceived support of Palestinian and Arab causes, and alleged antisemitism by her supporters. and on the night before the primary election, McKinney’s father stated on Atlanta television that “Jews have bought everybody … J-E-W-S.”Cynthia McKinney had been through a long contentious relationship with the American Israel Public Affairs Committee, and commentators such as Alexander Cockburn allege that money from out-of-state Jewish organizations, angered by her stand on Middle East issues, was key in her election defeat. Cockburn also wrote that “Buckets of sewage were poured over McKinney’s head in the Washington Post and the Atlanta Constitution.”According to the Anti Defamation League, McKinney’s use of the New Black Panther Party as security, given that organization’s use of antisemitic and racist invective, and her failure to distance herself from that group, are “troubling.”Georgia political analyst Bill Shipp addressed McKinney’s defeat saying: “voters sent a message: ‘We’re tired of these over-the-top congressmen dealing in great international and national interests. How about somebody looking out for our interests?’ ” https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Cynthia_McKinney

    Robert Halfon sends his deputiy Strizzolo to meet an Israeli operative from Mossad in order to discuss how to smear and destroy those MPs that are not enthusiastic enough about Jewish State, and how to influence the UK government to benefit Israel.
    “With his father Clement Halfon having upped his level of Orthodox Jewish practice and now living in Jerusalem, Robert Halfon says of his own Jewish allegiance: “I believe in it all. But I don’t do enough.” But he certainly makes up for it by his constant support for Israel and courageous stand against Islamic fundamentalism.” http://www.jewishtelegraph.com/prof_101.html

    The same treasonous activities have been going on in the US – just look at the power of the Lobby over Congresspeople. If Israel-firsters are so proud and certain about their “Jewish allegiance” then they should better move to their state of allegiance and stop using (in parasitic fashion) the US’ and UK’ resources. Note that Mario Strizzolo, an aide to the Israel-firster Robert Halfon, has resigned after the recorded scandalous rendezvous with the Mossad operative, but her boss Halfon has not. Halfon is a former political director of the Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI) parliamentary group.

    “… doesn’t Zionist Israel predicate its theft of Palestinian land on god giving it to them?”

    I hesitate to answer on behalf of iffen and Sam Shama, but I offer “yay” to your question, above.

    However, as one looks back into modern history of the Middle East, there is the horrific siege of Tal al-Zaatar (“the hill of thyme”) to reflect upon.

    During the Lebanon civil war (1976) Tal al-Zaatar was a camp that housed > 25,000 Palestinians. Some accounts place the camp’s population @ 50,000.

    A Bad-Dream Team consisting of Christian Maronite irregulars, Zionists, and forces led by the late-Syrian president Hafez al-Assad, brutally attacked Tal al-Zaatar. Thousands died and when the attackers entered the camp, most of the survivors were shot including doctors and nurses.

    By the standards of today’s immoral US/Zionist humanitarian war, the 3-headed culprit’s “Final Solution” was logical since Tal al-Zaatar had no remaining water & medicine. Please look at the “link” below that admittedly casts uprooted Palestinian light upon this abomination involving ungodly forces of the region’s Three People of the Book .

    http://uprootedpalestinians.blogspot.com/2012/04/who-is-responsible-fot-fall-of-tal-al.html

    Maybe U.R. Comment Team iffen and Sam Shama has something to add about this 1976-era monstrous & forgotten injustice? No doubt, knowledgeable that Sam Shama is an external “Insider,” I see where he has intelligently intimated the coming of a Trump/Putin military alliance that will gang up on Sunni & Shiite “backsliders” and will solve the Zionist’s pesky historical problem of creating Greater Israel.

    In the gaseous words of Rocky & Bulwinkle’s nemesis Boris, it’s going to be “Poof your a Goof” for 2-State solution advocates.

    Do I have this scenario correct, Sam? Frankly, & as you may recall, I thought the same way… but I do not believe god is in-charge of this blatant land grab operation.

    Once you understand the comparison between Zionism and Nazism, and learn how terror was a weapon used by the Zionists in its quest to steal land from the lawful owners, it is quite a historical lesson.

    It all depends on where you get your historical information.

    Herbert Hoover met w/ Hitler & Goering in 1938. He said their three idees fixes were to unify Germany from its fragmentation in the Treaty of Versailles; to expand into Russia in order to control agricultural land that the British could not blockade, as had happened in WWI, causing starvation of 800,000 German civilians; and to destroy Russia’s Bolshevik government. Germans formed an army and fought a war, the British and French having declared war upon them. https://www.amazon.com/dp/0817912347/ref=rdr_ext_tmb

    Zionism’s on-going idees fixes are to create an exclusively Jewish state in lands inhabited by other people for over 1500 years, expelling those people or making their lives a living hell; to subvert and maneuver other national powers to provide political, financial, and military cover and support to bring that about; to destabilize states where Jews dwell in peace, in order to terrorize Jews to aliyeh to Israel to fulfill the in-gathering of the diaspora mandate; and to keep resistant neighbors in a state of chaos. Zionists used terror tactics, then & now. https://tz-sw.diebuchsuche.com/vitabu-isbn-9783639291131.html and https://archive.org/stream/TheIronWall-ZionistRevisionismFormJabotinskyToShamir/Ironw_djvu.txt

    You make the comparisons.

    wrt History lessons:
    “The official name of the party was “Nationalsozialistische Deutsche Arbeiterpartei“, “National-Socialist German Workers’ Party”, NSDAP.
    They did not refer to themselves as “Nazi”.
    That term was in regular use in Germany before the rise of the NSDAP as slang for a backwards peasant, derived from “Ignaz”, somewhat akin to the American epithet “hick”.
    Its use for the party and its adherents originated with the party’s enemies. ”

    When you use the term Nazi and make mindless comparisons, Bibi grins & zionism wins.

    So, Soros funds groups that criticize Israel. Groups that the establishment ignores.

    Where are the riots? Cuz Soros funds riots in America. Where’s the election interference? Cuz Soros does that in America, too. America, which is 1000x better to minorities than Israel. Soros funds leftist organizations outside Israel to exhale hot gasses. Israel, which is 1000x worse to minorities than Israel.

    Soros is a fake leftist. I don’t know how ethnocentric he is (it’s a high bar, when we’re talking Jews), but he’s absolutely soft on Israel (galactically obvious reason is because Jewish). If he was a genuine leftist, the situation I just outlined would be reversed. Trauma surgeons who do nothing but nose jobs are phonies. Leftists who are more outraged by America than Israel are phonies.

    How much money does Soros spend subverting Israeli nationalism, vs. how much he spends on America? Got a link for that? A list of organizations he gave $20 to doesn’t tell us much.

Then the Zionists can publish a list and whine about it. Then you get to post the link. So what? What has Soros done in Israel? Do you have some articles from the conservative English press in Israel, as to Soros’ invidious influence? If Soros is making advances there, shouldn’t they be complaining about it?

    Kabuki theatre. Fake fights between condottieri. Taking a dive. This stuff is not exactly new.

  209. Svigor says:

    Zionists’ problem with Soros is that he isn’t ENOUGH of a hypocrite on Israel:

    http://forward.com/news/131728/j-street-flap-shines-spotlight-on-george-soros-and/

    In 2009, Soros declared that he is not a Zionist and not a practicing Jew. But he added that he has “a great deal of sympathy for my fellow Jews, and a deep concern for the survival of Israel.”

    These statements did little to make Soros welcome within the Jewish establishment. In return, he has steered clear of dealing with Jewish groups and rarely takes on issues relating to Israel.

    And, perhaps unintentionally, Soros’s money is flowing to a wide variety of American Jewish charities. Thanks to the his company’s matching-fund program, Soros matches on a 3:1 basis any charitable donation made by his employees. And this, according to tax filings, has meant that Soros dollars have been reaching organizations ranging from New York’s UJA-Federation to a Chabad kollel in Brooklyn, and even to Taglit-Birthright Israel.

    The common theme in his work is an effort to further democratize societies: He set up a foundation in Ukraine toward that end before its independence from the Soviet Union, and has recently fought southeastern European countries over their strict policies toward Syrian, Iraqi and Afghani refugees flowing over their borders.

    How much “fighting” has Soros done in Israel over their much stricter policies toward refugees from anywhere?

    Soros was already known to have defunded previous investments in Israeli organizations operating in the West Bank, such as SodaStream, from which he divested in 2014. But this hack shows that several organizations which received Open Society grants actively deny Israel’s right to exist. Such grants include over $1 million to I’lam, an anti-Zionist organization, and over $2.5 million to Adalah, which frequently accuses Israeli forces of war crimes.

    On its public list of expenditures, Open Society says that over its 33 years in existence it has spent “$1.6 billion on democratic development in the countries of Eastern Europe and the former Soviet Union,” and “$2.9 billion to defend human rights, particularly the rights of women, ethnic, racial, and religious minorities, and often marginalized groups such as drug users, sex workers, and LGBTQ communities.”

    Billions on lefty causes outside Israel, a couple million to organizations that bitch about Israel. Sounds like a hypocrite to me. Just not enough of one to keep the Zionists happy.

  211. @Art

    Art,

    I’d really like to trust Vladimir Putin to not abandon Iran… but?

    We must never forget that the Zionist Israel is “One” with the U.S.A. who at present is the # 1 gunslinger on the planet. Doubtless Russia is a very close # 2.

    I look to the words of the late-Mao Zedong who said, “Power emerges from the barrel of a gun.”

    I believe President Putin is well aware that Wall Street Jews in President Trump’s cabinet want to quickly clean up the mess in the Middle East, of course in favor of the Zionist desire for a Greater Israel. AFTERWARD, PIVOT FAR EAST WHERE THE WORLD’S LARGEST (POTENTIAL) CONSUMER MARKET IS LOCATED.

    So here is what I think is about to go down in favor of the ever-plotting Zionist global planners:

    1.) Exert give & take pressure upon Putin’s Russia. In other words, give the Motherland
    territorial and significant financial incentives to go along with insane US Zionist planning.

    2.) Once # 1 is officially registered, give rulers of the Islamic Republic of Iran a mob-type offer
    that “they cannot refuse,” or else face the (allied) twin Super-gunslinger consequences

    3.) Once Iranian influence is neutralized in Syria, Assad can rule over a diminished Syria and
    Putin can forever have Tartus as Russian naval base. Lebanon will be totally screwed and
    Israel’s northern border map will expand.

    4.) Netanyahu is under fraud indictment in Israel, which is a good thing and credit must be
    given to Israeli “law” in this case. Next week “Bibi” meets The Donald in D.C. and
    consequently, matters must happen quickly in order for indicted Netanyahu’s desire to
    have Trump make Jerusalem home to the US Embassy.

    5.) Ancillary parts such as Egypt, Turkey, and Saudi Arabia will be well compensated for
    keeping the Arab Street” in line by cracking heads as Islam’s 3rd holiest site (Dome of the
    Rock, where The Prophet ascended into heaven) draws closer & closer to Jews in control
    of East Jerusalem. \

    The goal is to formalize Israel as the predominant financial & nuclear power in the Middle East and make way for a highly profitable Goldman Sachs Group pivot East. Off the cuff, this is what I think is going down now.

    Peace be with you, Art…, and thanks for asking such a good question. I truly hope the Trump administration does not go apeshit and start aerial strikes against Iran, a contingency for which the Ayatollahs must be anticipating and forming a creative military counter strike. Scary, eh?

    At any rate, until 4-months or so ago, I avoided reading “Press Prestige” daily newspapers, for example, The New York Times and The W.S.J. and primarily relied upon web sites, like The Unz Review for getting critical news information and valid opinion.

    However, as I began to read The Wall Street Journal on daily basis, I learned how myopic I had become to being aware about how there is factual basis for Marx’s theorem of “economic determinism.” This becomes especially clear in today’s global political economies that are propelled by The Goldman Sachs Group which was magically awarded a “pole position” in the Trump administration.

    Therefore, I feel it’s not good to only peer into troubled www-waters where I am fairly comfortable, and it’s good to “up periscope” and read The Wall Street Journal when affordable.

    Speaking respectfully, Art, a couple questions (below) for you to consider.

    Do you believe China can ever become as “free” as our US/Zionist nation? Remember how the American people never actually voted upon NAFTA, including backroom “Fast Track” deals that managed to deindustrialize the US in < five years? (In fact, anti-NAFTA candidate Ross Perot's daughter's wedding got a Deep State threat that persuaded the billionaire to bail out of the POTUS election while still alive)

    Did the American people choose freedom (with "volition") when McCain and Obama stopped their POTUS campaigns in order to hasten the Big Bank/?Wall Street bail out, taxpayer heist?

    For me, and before all hell-on-earth breaks out, Israeli Zionists must be "pushed" out the D.C. inner chambers as soon as possible! Recall how "National Review" Neoconservatives piled on with a "Stop Trump" letter during the 2016 campaign? How curious is it now that President Trump will add Elliot Abrams as under-Secretary of State?

    Finally, Art, on your statement, "A billion and a half belligerent people of one tribe is not a good thing."

    I apologize for the rude contentiousness with you, a worthy ally.

    I am far from being an expert on the long history of China, but as an undergrad, I have studied Modern China and I learned why Sun Yat Sen became so pissed off by Imperial oppressors.

    So as a novice, Art, I’d recommend research into who were the financiers behind the European nation who helped get almost 75% of China’s male adult population hooked on opium. By 1949, and with China’s addiction problem out-of-control, I read that Chairman Mao Tse Tung gave opium addicts a difficult choice to either rehab or stand in front of a firing squad.

    (NOTE: I understand there’s volumes of bullshit history written on Mao’s China that were written by “scholars” who were doped up by rabid anti-communists who had close ties with the M.I.C. )

    To conclude, and according to my limited knowledge of China’s ancient history, I respectfully disagree with the Chinese being in the Top Two “Most Troublesome Tribes” on the Earth.

    My vote for the # 1 Most Troublesome Tribe of the 20th-21st century goes to England/ America-based Jewish Zionists who currently celebrate the 50th anniversary of the 1967 war
    and dramatic West Bank colonization.

    My vote for the planet’s Most Troublesome Tribe runner up? Hm, let me think about this for a moment.

    Uh — are multicultural Neoconservatives considered a “tribe.’ I realize that Elias Canetti might lend support to this idea, but nope… I must be fair, Art!

    So my nomination for the Earth’s # 2 Most Troublesome Tribe to the # 1 Most Troublesome Tribe is …….. The United Commenters of Unz Review!

    Post scriptum: I believe modern Zionists, riding on Goldman Sachs Group greased wheels, are fully capable of doing to Xi Jinping’s China what they have done to Spain, England, and what remains of the U.S.A. Given smack down of Russian Orthodox Church power again, and Bolshevik history could repeat itself in Russia.

    Hi RobinG,

    Think about 1.5 billion North Koreans. The North Koreans do not sell communism to their people – they sell ethnocentrism. They sell purity of blood.

    The current day Chinese are very ethnocentric. It is as old as time – politics is what it is – those in power stay in power by being ethnocentric. Tough times bring xenophobia.

    “I would be most happy to be wrong about China.”

    Art,

    Thanks to your inspiration, I have given more thought to your concerns about China’s behavior.

    This year, Chinese leader Xi jinping and businessman Jack Ma addressed the Davos globalist assembly. I believe that only those who are approved by Zionists get such limelight opportunities. (Note: Former-POTUS candidates Pat Buchanan and Congresswoman Cynthia McKinney, and Ralph Nader never got invited to Davos)

    Must check, Art, but I have yet to read about anyone affiliated with President Putin’s inner-government having a crack to speak at Davos this past month. If such was the case, perhaps a Russian attendee had connection to the “Atlanticist Integrationists,,” a rather influential government sector which Paul Craig Roberts feared was gaining influence upon President Putin? At any rate, if you have any insight as to who stands behind Russian “Atlantic Integrationists” I will appreciate your letting me know. I suspect The Goldman Sachs Group.

    Now I return to China and what I now see as a scary compatibility with Zionist global business planning.

    In past posts at The Unz Review, & as a reminder, I noted how the Goldman Sachs Group is hustling to do investment in China without having to carry the overhead burden of Chinese partners. I feel that Xi Jinping’s Jack Ma’s presence at Davos helped forward the Goldman Sachs Group goal. In addition, (nationalist?) President Trump’s close friend Mr. Scaramucci addressed the Davos crowd, and in the usual contradictory manner, he assured them, “President Trump is globalism’s last great hope.”

    Digging some into possible Chinese-brand “troublemaking,” I looked down the non-Mao “Capitalist Road” and learned things about Sheldon Adelson’s flourishing casinos in Macau and his troublesome connection with a Chinese crime boss. Please consider the “link” below?

    http://www.rawstory.com/2015/05/sheldon-adelsons-ties-to-alleged-chinese-crime-boss-under-scrutiny-after-new-testimony/

    In order to fully participate and harvest fruit$ in the global economy, including President Trump’s forthcoming “nationalist/populist” variation, a country’s linkage to Zionist high finance is & shall be imperative, axiomatic from the “get go.”

    Lucky for the Holy See that its population is small and the US/Zionists don’t bother placing sanctions upon the Vatican for opposing Israeli settlements and Catholic complaining about Chinese trafficking of prisoner organs for transplant. Knowing better, I believe US Roman Catholic Bishops stayed mum when the national scandal broke about New Jersey-based rabbis who were nabbed in the same illegal & highly profitable kidney transplant activity.

    At present, the Peoples Republic of China leadership recognizes such FLAWED FACT, and in the coming weeks, it will be interesting to watch how China acts when western European countries MIGHT (?) refuse to go along with intensified US/Zionist economic sanctions upon Iran. (My greatest fear is that President Putin has secretly agreed to, at minimum, down size the Iranian Revolution’s impact upon creation of Greater Israel)

    Art, I learned from reading Solzhenitsyn & evaluating my own behavior that each individual & nation has a dark side. He advised national leaders to recognize such, and for its own survival sake, repent from “troublemaking.” Look to Trump’s true statement broadcast a day ago where he said, “The US has blood on its hands.” Essentially, was Donald Trump sincere… who the hell knows? But in reaction, the Corporate-Zionist Media put former-Secretary James Baker on cable TV, and with statesmanlike dignity, Baker proclaimed that US bloodletting is morally acceptable because we have democracy and a free press.

    I regret having gone under here with prolixity, but now I see how Mao’s days of “Iron Rice Bowl” and “Barefoot Doctors” belong to the Preferential Treatment for the Peasant past. Thank you, Art.

    Chuck Orloski,

    You have covered a lot of ground in this comment. There are well meaning productive people at Davos – but at the top of the food chain is the oligarch Jew Rothschild banker system.

    You are right to see the money angle of Judaism. Israel is NOT number one to the Big Jews – money is. Big Jew money created Zionist Israel. Zionist Israel will serve Big Jew money. The Little Jews are just a tool — pitiful fodder to be used and manipulated. Who can respect them?

    China is just the same – its history is one of spurts of creativity and productivity – then a consolidation of power and wealth, that leads to subjugation and stagnation. The Jew will collaborate and combine with those Chinese in power. The combination of world Jew money banking and the Chinese population and productivity, would rule the world.

    How about we make a bet, Sam? I bet the mullahs will be constantly referred to as the new Hitlers. And I bet that the MSM will demonize them every day to the point that most Americans will come to believe that the Mullahs are responsible for 9/11, the Anthrax Attacks, and Global Warming (I’m serious about the last one this time). And all the polls will show that most Americans support an attack on Iran and you can point to them as irrefutable facts.

    So, do we have a bet?

    I just came across a very interesting article that may explain why Sam is a little reluctant accepting the bet I proffered him. Here’s a few excerpts:

    In a 2009 policy paper titled, “Which Path to Persia? Options for a New American Strategy Toward Iran,” the neocon think tank, the Brookings Institution, laid out in detail various means of provoking war and regime change against Iran.

    In it, Brookings explicitly revealed how a “superb offer” would be given to Iran, only to be intentionally revoked in a manner portraying Iran as ungrateful:

    …any military operation against Iran will likely be very unpopular around the world and require the proper international context—both to ensure the logistical support the operation would require and to minimize the blowback from it. The best way to minimize international opprobrium and maximize support (however, grudging or covert) is to strike only when there is a widespread conviction that the Iranians were given but then rejected a superb offer—one so good that only a regime determined to acquire nuclear weapons and acquire them for the wrong reasons would turn it down. Under those circumstances, the United States (or Israel) could portray its operations as taken in sorrow, not anger, and at least some in the international community would conclude that the Iranians “brought it on themselves” by refusing a very good deal.

    The so-called “Iran deal,” introduced during the administration of US President Barack Obama, represents precisely this “superb offer,” with Flynn’s accusations serving as the “turn down” ahead of the “sorrowful” war and attempted regime change the US had always planned to target Tehran with.

    In fact, Flynn would seemingly draw almost verbatim from the ploy described by Brookings in 2009, by stating:

    Instead of being thankful to the United States for these agreements, Iran is now feeling emboldened … As of today, we are officially putting Iran on notice…

    Flynn’s statement encapsulates a documented conspiracy drafted under President Bush, implemented under President Obama, and finally coming into full fruition under President Trump, once again illustrating the continuity of agenda that transcends party politics, presidencies, and political rhetoric – driven by immense corporate-financier special interests, not the will of the American public.

    http://www.activistpost.com/2017/02/us-betrays-iran-deal-predicted-edges-closer-war.html

    The only revision I would make to the concluding sentence is this: “driven by the immense Israel Lobby special interests, not the will of the American public.”

    “What I know has more to do with the kindred interests of the world’s super rich as opposed to the ‘interests’ of some imagined Jewish hive-mind.”

    Sam,

    I see sense in what you said above. My thought process differs given that I am programmed to look at world leader’s proclivity for good and evil.

    A goal for the remainder of my life is to become aware when empowered “kindred interests” turn dark and violate the ultra-humane “interests” of Christ crucified that are on display in The Sermon on the Mount. Another part of the Gospel admonishes believers to expose “evil” which St. Joan did all the way to the stake.

    Consequently, Sam, when I see evil in my self, I try to expunge it the best I can. In addition, when I witnessed the W. Bush administration’s sickening Shock & Awe on TV while at work as an Emergency Response Coordinator, I went as far as to piss off my company owner and called
    the attack evil. “Evil” — did not fart around.

    Afterward, any plans I had to “get ahead” with TEEM Environmental, Inc., rapidly went down with Iraqi babies & the Baathist water. The company owner was quite certain that I was unpatriotic & supported Saddam! In fact, myopic Mr. Pat S. likely thought I suffered from having a A-rab “hive-mind.”

    I intuit you would like my views on the people mentioned (above) a tad better than those expressed by Dr. David Duke. So for now, and for the purpose of E.S.T. and having to watch The Andy Griffith Show shortly, my views on prominent historical figures mirror those of Pat Buchanan who authored “Churchill, Hitler, and The Unnecessary War.” My next read will be “The Chief Culprit,” a book which is likely not on Education Secretary Betsy DeVos’s reading list.

    Lastly, prior to his death September 30, 2010, I enjoyed email exchanges with Joseph Sobran who once edited The National Review until his having run afoul to The Lobby. Thus, as soon as you mentioned a “hive-mind,” I could not help myself but to remember Mr. Sobran’s very fine web site “The Hive” and the Catholic knowledge available therein. Refer to “link” below?

    Amen to your wise words (from the Scranton-based bleacher seat section) opposite the almighty D.C. “Amen Corner.”

    One matter? If you can, try and read Canadian author, Michael Springate’s, fine (fiction) book titled, “The Beautiful West and The Beloved of God.”

    The story centers upon the dynamic love of a working class Canadian girl (with child) and a Muslim fellow. The young man got an opportunity to participate in how the vaunted “Global Economy” is supposed to work (for all), and upon his father’s plea, he traveled alone to Egypt in order to help an uncle kick-start a small business. The book is maturely objective, intense, and I had the honor to read Mr. Springate’s manuscript and write a ‘blurb” for the book cover.

    Remember how Warren Commission attorney Arlen Specter defied the law of physics and criminally invented “The Magic Bullet Theory”?

    In Robert Lifton’s book, “Best Evidence,” the author scientifically notes that when people are shooting at yellow duckies at a Carnival, a bullet strikes a duckie and it naturally tips backward and not forward.

    I wonder what modern day US high school level physics teachers think when they watch Abraham Zapruder’s film, and observe the trajectory of JFK’s both hands to his throat (front) as Jackie lunges for the limo trunk in order to retrieve a section of her husband’s brain matter?

    Thankyou for replying, I know I’m not in your league of understanding world politics. I read your comments with great interest.

    Last night I was composing an email to someone, which I was never intending to send. It went:

    The Irish may have produced some lyrical poets, the Scottish some instructive economists, the Germans and French some fascinating philosophers and the Jewish any number of quantum magicians and psychologists. But it was the English who produced Newton and Darwin and on those two discoveries the modern world, that so many people now wish to flock to, was born, and still exists.

    You don’t do HBD, do you? Where does culture come from? The English survived 300 years of feudalism. We are returning to feudalism.

    Watching the Brexit proceedings has helped me understand how left-right politics works. Conservatives want to run a country and to do that, they need power. Leftists want power but they are bogged down by procedures and when they get power they don’t really know how to run a country (and hence they fall prey to profiteers – champagne socialists).

    After what has happened with Brexit, if the left get back into power they will monstrously reform delicately balanced procedures that have evolved over 1000 years and will install a virtual one-party state (Commie-Capitalism, like China). Human Rights exist to get the left into power. HR produces a knee-jerk reaction in ordinary people that gives the left its voters.

    What is amazing is the number of English (including some assimilated SAsians and WIndians) who see this without having any degrees in PPE. That gives me hope.

    A time may come when trading is not the solution; when real world practical solutions are required. That may be a financial crash, an energy blackout, civil unrest, plague, or worse. Practical solutions require practical, objective, altruistic, minds.

    Think about Brave New World – some people escaped and went back to nature to start again.

    The interesting thing about the AngloScandiManics (the offspring of lactose tolerance) is that whereas other diasporas cling to their traditions, the ASM seem to be programmed to go forth and spawn new cultures. There has to be an evolutionary value in that. Intellectual diversity. Ideas. True progress. Marxism was an invention. Darwinism was a discovery.

    Chuck,

    Thank you so much for bringing up Joseph Sobran. He is a special hero and influence to me.

    I read his newspaper columns – they were always interesting – never the conventional wisdom of the times. He always had something different to say, and he said it well.

    In one column, Sobran wrote about the words of Jesus and how important they were – in how “just the words themselves” had positively affected mankind in our everyday lives. Jesus’ words were about hope, sacred life, love, truth, forgiveness, and grace. The words prescribed the actual functioning of Western culture on an everyday level for everyday people. I began to see Christianity as more than a religion that connected us to God, but as a benign benevolent philosophy that connected us to each other.

    The Christian religion has baggage and the burden of old thinking – but not the Christian philosophy – it is always idealistic and fresh. If mankind ever finds peace – it will be a philosophical Christian dominated arrangement. Its idealism is the only way forward.

    Thanks again.

    Sam,

    Remember the once revered Nanny who allegedly murdered children Lucia and Leo Krim, October 2012? Afterward, she was arrested, taken into custody, and for some strange reason, was induced into a coma. Do you remember the Nanny’s name?

    If not, life goes on, and you juts might remember the name of the children’s father? A hint: He was a big Media cyber-executive who did a “no-no” and publicized a huge lawsuit filed against High Rollers for their abject fleecing of draper-level beings.

    You’re a young whipper-snapper but do you remember the popular old Texaco TV commercial? Entrust your money to the Man who wears the David Star!

    To S2C,

    I am a life-long Pennsylvania resident. Our latest Governor, Tom Wolf (D.) was the # 1 contributor to his successful campaign against Tom Corbett, an unpopular Republican who drank heartily from the teat of Marcellus Shale natural gas drillers.

    Not to completely bore you & waste time, I want tell you a little story that demonstrates how politician “shit” flows uphill, cross country, subsurface, and downhill.

    Yesterday, multi-millionaire Governor Wolf advised the PA legislation to make all public school districts seek competitive bids for their school bus driving needs. Makes good sense, eh S2C?

    However, this means that companies who are awarded school bus contracts must come in with rather “bottom-line” bids. Absent of course is School Board’s consideration of the quality of the “winning” organization — for example, fleet condition/maintenance reliability, and the character, skill, and patience of CDL drivers whose daily wages are naturally driven down by the “guvmint” money saving process.

    (Had I a fleet of horses, plentiful feed, and covered wagons, I would offer a spiteful bid for the Johnstown Flood Area School District’s bus service needs)

    State Governors & elected Legislators earn and (perhaps) deserve getting paid more than public school bus drivers. Agreed… however, unlike PA Governor Tom Wolf, I can not even dream of financing an “Orloski” campaign to execute a hostile “take over” for his chauffeur’s job.

    From a source I can not find, Karl Marx said, “When politicians get the power of the purse, democracy is over.” In such absurd case (as are rigged US elections), I support Milton Friedman-Fleecing Competition, as a better (post-democratic) way. Drive down the astronomical Federal, State & Local payrolls by installing politicians & staffs by a “low bid” process.

    He must have a set of balls the size of buffalo! But for me & likely others, the part about Governor “Blago” being framed is a tad bit hard to swallow, but I admit to speaking as one fooled by Fake News many times before, courteous of high ranking jerkoffs.

    Refer to article, below? Thank you.

    But it was the English who produced Newton and Darwin and on those two discoveries the modern world, that so many people now wish to flock to, was born, and still exists.

    Hi helena — sorry for the delay in responding.

    You are so right about Newton and Darwin – there are no equals in human science. But there are also many other Brits of major stature. One of them is Michael Faraday – and his discoverer of electromagnetism. Our world runs today on electromagnetism. Another great is William Thomson (1st Baron Kelvin), and his basic work on thermodynamics. What doesn’t run on electricity is powered by thermodynamics principles. In the 17oo’s and 18oo’s in Britain, the highest form of achievement was to discover something about nature. Brit science was an achievement of culture – not genetics. In most cultures, true genus is not even recognized.

    It is impossible not to believe in HBD. Clearly tribes have characteristic traits, both emotional and intellectual. But with that said – today biological genetics is not moving humanity forward – culture is. The knowledge that all human culture demands and wants to assimilate, is driving humanity. We are on a path to have the knowledge to read every human’s genetic code and as a result improving their health. Advancement by biological genetics is to slow a method for change. Knowledge is going to change genetics – not the other way around.

    Marxism was an invention. Darwinism was a discovery. There is a book there.

    I am a short-term pessimist and a long-term optimist. But I fear that the long-term is a long way off.

    We the people have only two ways to object to the current situation – voting and boycotting. Only our power is numbers. Voting worked – now it is time for the money thing.

    A possible boycott target is Amazon – it works on short margins – a large loss of business for a short period of time would really hurt.

    Liberal elite Bezos has dumped on Trump and the immigration thing – payback is due. A one month boycott should be announced with the specific demand that the fake-news anti-Trump Washington Post editor and chief be fired. If nothing happens then another month – then December.

    “.. what’s a draper?”

    In case Sam Shama is to hung by his own doing & fails to reply, I will venture a guess.

    During early 1900s to around maybe late 1980s, very talented women made very fine drapery (drapes) which even middle-class American families managed purchase for their homes.

    The work of the most talented drape-makers developed quite a good reputation, and their drapes naturally began to appear in the homes & business offices owned by American society’s “upper crust.”

    As we know by reading his low hanging Unz missives, Sam Shama has lots of “crust.”

    “Only our power is in numbers… voting worked.”

    Speaking respectfully especially to you, our power lay in AWARENESS about what Zionists did to Germany and what they are now doing to us.

    Regarding “voting,” as I have previously suggested via Unz Review comment, POTUS elections are actually a process of elimination as to who gets to misrule our country, particularly when it comes to fossilize policies which favor Israeli interests.

    Yes, voting did work for Donald Trump and he’s now upgrading his attacks upon the truly “crooked” Corporate Media, and with his 7-nation travel ban, the president broadens his transformational battle with attacks on US court judgments. (Note: In Gulag Archipelago I recall how A. Solzhenitysn traced the evolution of Soviet law under Stalin. He wrote chapters “The Law as a Child, The Law Matures, and The Law as a Man.” It’s interesting to look at SCOTUS court case evolution from Marbury v. James Madison (1803) to the W. Bush administration’s knee jerk passing of the ominous “Patriot Act”)

    In addition, Art, former President Jimmy Carter emphasized (to Oprah) that “the US is no longer a democracy,” and President Trump was fairly consistent in emphasizing how “rigged” was the election which he won via taking the Electoral College this past November.

    Better than your recommended “boycott” of Jeff Bezos’s global-Amazon, in my view, would be a boycott of the Zionist global selling of False History about the rise of Hitler and the Holocaust which some astute professors have nicknamed the “Holohoax” and got fired.

    Real power lay in AWARENESS, Art, and such requires a mass proclivity to recognize & rebel against Fake News/Agenda News and seek truth. And lest we forget, Mao Tse Tung asserted that “power emerges for the barrel of a gun”? Given the average American’s engineered unawareness about who really did 9-11, the Zionists used the greatest Gunslinger’s “barrel” on the planet to start an evil “War Against Evil.”

    To paraphrase Smokey the Bear, only AWARENESS can ultimately prevent immoral & unnecessary Zionist wars.

    If you find time, please consider reading the article “link” (below) where solid historical information is conveyed and is conveniently banished by powerful US & other influential global institutions.

    Hey, Sam. Given those impressive returns, gullibility is understandable. But what isn’t is the lack of action by the SEC and the lack of interest by the WSJ, when they both were presented with rock solid evidence years in advance. Given your intimate knowledge of the trading business, I was curious to see if you had a plausible explanation:

    Outside analysts raised concerns about Madoff’s firm for years. The first real concerns about Madoff’s operation were raised in May 2000, when Harry Markopolos, a financial analyst and portfolio manager at Boston options trader Rampart Investment Management, alerted the SEC about his suspicions. A year earlier, Rampart had found out that Access International Advisors, one of its trading partners, had significant investments with Madoff. Markopolos’ bosses at Rampart asked him to design a product that could replicate Madoff’s returns. However, Markopolos concluded almost immediately that Madoff’s numbers didn’t add up. After four hours of trying and failing to replicate Madoff’s returns, Markopolos concluded Madoff was a fraud. He told the SEC that based on his analysis of Madoff’s returns, it was mathematically impossible for Madoff to deliver them using the strategies he claimed to use. In his view, there were only two ways to explain the figures—either Madoff was front running his order flow, or his wealth management business was a massive Ponzi scheme. This submission, along with three others, passed with no substantive action from the SEC. At the time of Markopolos’ initial submission, Madoff managed assets from between $3 billion and $6 billion, which would have made his wealth management business the largest hedge fund in the world even then.

    The culmination of Markopolos’ analysis was his third submission, a detailed 17-page memo entitled The World’s Largest Hedge Fund is a Fraud. He had also approached The Wall Street Journal about the existence of the Ponzi scheme in 2005, but its editors decided not to pursue the story. The memo specified 30 numbered red flags based on 174 months (a little over 14 years) of Madoff trades. The biggest red flag was that Madoff reported only seven losing months during this time, and those losses were almost statistically insignificant. This produced a return stream that rose in a nearly perfectly straight line. Markopolos pointed out the markets are far too volatile even under the best of conditions for this to be possible. Later, Markopolos testified before Congress that this was like a baseball player batting .966 for the season “and no one suspecting a cheat.”

    Yes, the SEC, the NASD, and as you mention the WSJ were all among the stellar cast completely star struck by Bernie’s reputation, which in addition to the “steady returns” included a longish stint as the Chairman of the NASD, a regulatory body. No one could believe the former top cop to be a thief.

    Years ago I spotted the man at a favourite establishment of his called Keen’s – one of the oldest steakhouses in Manhattan. When he entered [with a dinner partner], sort of a hush settled in the dining room, with people nudging each other whispering about his presence – so rare and difficult was it apparently, to “get Bernie to manage your money!”

    You might imagine the consummate skill with which he played the part of the reluctant, brilliant, money-manager desperately sought after by the glitterati of nyc and FL !

    I wasn’t all that familiar with his reputation at the time and the steak was more interesting, but upon reflection, after the scandal broke years later, I reckoned I had witnessed the act of a master criminal.

    Your having found the old Texaco commercial on You Tube was pretty good freshman-level research, but I hoped you might have drilled deeper into my quip, above. Here is what it really means:

    After the CIA/Mossad 1954 operation that resulted in the overthrow of Mossadegh who wanted to nationalize Iran’s oil fields, the Anglo Persian Oil Co. was replaced by a joint venture including B.P/, Dutch/Shell… and Texaco. Long ago, & perhaps before you were born, Sam, I realized the “Big Prize” of controlling Middle East crude was sought after by Deep State players who would piss on consumers and tell them it’s “leaded-High Test.”

I wish I had kept a list of all Steve Sailer’s catchphrases, they are so funny and clever.

    Yes, I see what you’re saying. But there is a difference between abnormalities that can be traced to one or a few genes and something like IQ that is influenced by so many genes, it will be a while before much intervention can be made at the molecular level; with embryos maybe.

    What’s more, deliberate-planned closed mindedness (like yours) helps perpetuate the success of Zionist-driven Fake News & Op-Eds, and such dis-jointed bullshit naturally pisses me off, and makes it extremely difficult for me to practice “Love thine enemy.”

    Recalling how you once commented (here @ Unz) that countering anti-semitism is almost a full-time job, I see that’s one (1) reason why you contribute here so often, Sam.

    Sam..please … please .. stop the Sham!

    How could you say you weren’t familiar with Bernie’s reputation?

    You seem to know Bernie on a first name basis. Why are you hiding the fact that you and Bernie attended the same synagogue. Every week you and Bernie and other coreligionists prayed on the Shabbat Holiday where Jews are required to observed the Mitzvah of Tzedekah. As you know, this prayer places on every Jew the obligations to right the injustices of society by contributing money to help individuals or groups in need themselves, or, engaged in helping others.

    We all know what a Mensch Bernie was. He gave a great deal of money to his friends in need. He gave millions to his
    millionaire friends, Fred Wilpon and Saul Katz, who badly needed to buy a baseball team. As you recall, the ill gotten money was used to purchased a controlling half of the Mets baseball team for the sum of 135 million dollars.

    While Bernie was giving millions to business friends and members of his tribe, including Jewish charities and other Jewish organizations, he was fleecing billions from his clients. Thousands lost their life savings and many companies who invested with Bernie lost their employee’s pension funds. Thousands were financially devastated by Bernie’s Ponzi scheme.

    The court appointed lawyer, Irving Pickard, who was tasked with clawing back the money has only been able to recover 11 billion of the 17.5 billion principal lost in the fraud.

    6.5 billion is still missing. I would bet my Dunkin Donut Christmas gift card the lost billions were deposited in criminal Israeli banks. This money will be secured and available to Bernie’s friends when they decide to make Aliyah. This available money arrangement will be similar to the German Jewish Haavara Agreement. Better known as the Transfer Agreement.

    Sam….. do you and the Jewish masters of the universe think we all have Goyish Cups?

    Bernie was the fall guy for the vast network of Jewish fraudsters on Wall Street. Do you really believe one man and his sons were able to steal 60+ billions on their own?

    These fraudster had friends in the SEC office and at the WSJ. This is why the Security and Exchange Commission, and, at the time, the Jewish owned Wall Street Journal, failed to report and timely investigate Bernie’s criminal Ponzi Scheme.

    Sam … how many people from the SEC were fired for not doing their job? I rest my case.

    As you know I learned from you that in the Ma’ariv portion
    of the Shabbat evening prayers, there is a special one entitled Ahavat Olam, which means love for the world around us.

    Since Israel is a Jewish religious ethnocentric state, does the Ahavat Olam prayer apply only to the Jewish world or does the love extend to Goys?

    Israeli Sephardic leader Rabbi Ovadia Yosef claims non- Jews exist to serve Jews. He said recently ” Goyim were born only to serve us. With that they have no place in the world; only to serve the People of Israel. Why are gentiles needed? They will work, they will plow, they will reap. We will sit like an effendi and eat. ”

    Now I know why Rabbi Ovadia Yosef and his followers love the world around them. It is obvious.

    I also recently learned that the most important Jewish holiday is Yom Kippur, the day of atonement . On Yom Kippur, forgiveness is asked of God, but arguably more important is the forgiveness asked of one’s fellow men on the eve of Kippur. Do the Jews in Israel have the same prayers as American Jews? If they do, do you think Israelis ask the Palestinians for forgiveness?

    Do the Jewish fraudsters, Bernie Madoff, Michael Milken, Ivan Boesky, Ron Perelman, Marc Rich, Barry Minkow, Martin Wolf, Ben Friedman, and the list goes on endlessly.

    …. ever ask for forgiveness. Every one of these master cooks attended a Synagogue regularly and were very close to the Jewish community. Many even had close ties to Israel.

    Before you respond to my post and call me a virulent anti Semite, it is important you know my definition of anti Semitism is different from probably yours, and the official Jewish definition.

    Shammy’s BS is clearly on the nose for more than just a few commenters here at The Unz Review.

    It’s a shame that the authors/enthusiasts of the two hypotheses that together convincingly explain the evolution of Western Civilisation (Hajnal Line and JDS), each do not accept the validity of the other. That book you mentioned could be an exploration of the two hypotheses.

  295. NoseyTheDuke,

    I am rather disappointed that Sam failed to give credit to you in his comment # 305. Lucky for him that Rehmat must be on vacation & is absent on Unz Review comment “thread” for > 2- weeks.

    So obvious Sam Shama does not have the courage of his deceptive conviction to make a response to “Anon’s” truly unprecedented service to what remains of patriotic Americans.

    In the meantime, I deposit the Rense article (below) with the hope that Sam Shama chews on truly “solid food” for a change instead of his own narcissist pablum.

    Talk later, Nosey, I must now go to my yard and start am school bus pickups.

    P.S.: Thanks again “Anon” for your unforgettable comment # 304. I wish you could write articles @ Unz Review!

    Saw a TV prog the other night about James Clerk Maxwell. Einstein used to keep a photo of him on his study wall. For some infuriating reason, Scots are brighter than they ought to be. James Hutton was just a farmer, although a step up from Robert Burns socially. Hugh Miller was a stonemason and quarry worker. David Hume was just a fat bloke.

    True story – Scots punch way above their weight when comes to intellectual matters.

    Maxwell’s wave equations are part of the bedrock of science.

    Adam Smith is another human game changer.

    Thanks!

    Peace — Art

    Thanks for the response, Art, tracked down the item, if anyone’s interested.

    Interestingly, both Maxwell and Miller were massively informed by their faith having arrived there by their own reasoning and examination, in (different) ages, when it was fashionable to deprecate such things, if one wished to appear ‘modern’ (despite Miller’s suicide).
