Recently, YouTube suddenly shut down the If Americans Knew YouTube channel. This contained 70 videos providing facts-based information about Israel-Palestine.

People going to the channel saw a message telling them that the site had been terminated for “violating YouTube guidelines”—implying to the public that we were guilty of wrongdoing. And ensuring they didn’t learn about the information we were trying to disseminate.

When we tried to access our channel, we found a message saying our account had been “permanently disabled.” We had received no warning and got no explanation.

After five days, we received a generic message saying YouTube had reviewed our content and determined it didn’t violate any guidelines. Our channel became live once more.

So why was it shut down in the first place? What happened and why?

As it turns out, Israel and Israeli institutions employ armies of Internet warriors—from Israeli soldiers to students—to spread propaganda online and try to get content banned that Israel doesn’t want seen.

Perhaps like our videos of Palestinians killed by Israeli forces.

What happened

A few days before the termination of our channel, we received a form email from YouTube, telling us we had gotten “one strike” for a short video about a Palestinian man killed by Israeli soldiers. The video was part of our series of videos to make Palestinian victims, usually ignored by US media, visible to Americans.

It takes three minutes to view the video and see that it contains nothing objectionable, unless revealing cruelty and oppression is objectionable:

YouTube’s email claimed we had somehow violated their long list of guidelines but did not tell us which one, or how. It simply stated:

“Your video ‘Ahmad Nasser Jarrar’ was flagged for review. Upon review, we’ve determined that it violates our guidelines. We’ve removed it from YouTube and assigned a Community Guidelines strike, or temporary penalty, to your account.”

Such a penalty is not public and does not terminate the channel.

Three days later, before we’d even had a chance to appeal this strike, YouTube suddenly took down our entire channel. This was done with no additional warnings or explanation.

This violated YouTube’s published policies.

YouTube policies say there is a “three-strike” system by which it warns people of alleged violations three times before terminating a channel. If a channel is eventually terminated, the policies state that YouTube will send an email “detailing the reason for the suspension.”

None of this happened in our case.

We submitted appeals on YouTube’s online form, but received no response. Attempts to find a phone number for YouTube and/or email addresses by which we could communicate with a human being were futile.

YouTube’s power to shut down content without explanation whenever it chooses was acutely apparent. While there are other excellent video hosting sites, YouTube is the largest one, with nearly ten times more views than its closest competitors. It is therefore enormously powerful in shaping which information is available to the public–and which is not.

We spent days working to upload our videos elsewhere, update links to the videos, etc. Finally, having received no response or even acknowledgment of our appeal from YouTube, we decided to write an article about the situation. We emailed YouTube’s press department a list of questions about its process. We have yet to receive any answers.

Finally that evening we received an email with good news:

“After a review of your account, we have confirmed that your YouTube account is not in violation of our Terms of Service. As such, we have unsuspended your account. This means your account is once again active and operational.”

Our channel was visible once more. And YouTube had now officially confirmed that our content doesn’t violate its guidelines.

Ultimately, the YouTube system seems to have worked, in our case. Inappropriate censorship was overruled, perhaps by saner or less biased heads. In fact, we felt that there might at least be one positive result of the situation—additional YouTube employees had viewed our videos and perhaps learned much about Israel-Palestine they had not previously known.

But the whole experience was a wakeup call that YouTube can censor information critical of powerful parties at any time, with no explanation or accountability.

Israeli soldiers paid to “Tweet, Share, Like and more”

Israel and partisans of Israel have long had a significant presence on the Internet, working to promote the Israel narrative and block facts about Palestine, the Israel lobby, and other subject matter they wish covered up.

Opinionated proponents of Israel post comments, flag content, accuse critics of “antisemitism,” and disseminate misinformation about Palestine and Palestine solidarity activists. Many of these actions are by individuals acting alone who work independently, voluntarily, and relentlessly.

In addition to these, however, a number of orchestrated, often well-funded projects sponsored by the Israeli government and others have come to light. These projects work to place pro-Israel content throughout the Internet, and to remove information Israel doesn’t wish people to know.

One such Israeli project targeting the Internet came to light when it was lauded in an article by Arutz Sheva, an Israeli news organization headquartered in an Israeli settlement in the West Bank.

The report described a new project by Israel’s “New Media desk” that focused on YouTube and other social media sites. The article reported that Israeli soldiers were being employed to “Tweet, Share, Like and more.”

The article noted, “It is well known nowadays that what happens on Facebook, Twitter and YouTube has great influence on events as they occur on the ground. The Internet, too, is a battleground.” It was “comforting,” the article stated, to learn that the IDF was employing soldiers whose job was specifically to do battle on it.

Israeli students paid to promote Israel on social media

Another project to do battle on the Internet was initiated in 2011 by the 300,000-strong National Union of Israeli Students (NUIS). The goal was “to deepen and expand hasbara [state propaganda] activities of students in the State of Israel.”

Under this program, Israeli students are paid \$2,000 to work five hours per week to “lead the battle against hostile websites.”


An announcement for the program (translated here into English) noted that “many students in Israel master the Internet and are proficient at using the Internet and social networking and various sites and are required to write and express themselves in English.” Students can work from the comfort of their own homes, points out the announcement.

“Students work in four teams: Content, Wikipedia, Monitoring and New Media,” according to the program description. It details the responsibilities for each team:

The content team is responsible for creating original content in a news format.

The monitoring team is responsible for “monitoring efforts while reporting and removing anti-Semitic [sic] content from social networks in a variety of languages.” (The program conflates criticism of Israel with antisemitism; see below.)

The New Media team is responsible for social media channels, “including Facebook accounts in English, French and Portuguese, Twitter, YouTube channels, and so on.”

The Wikipedia team is “responsible for writing new entries and translating them into languages that operate in the program, updating the values of current and relevant information, tracking and preventing bias in the program’s areas of activity.”

This program sometimes claims it is working against antisemitism, but it conflates antisemitism with criticism of the state of Israel. This is in line with an Israel-backed initiative to legally define “antisemitism” to include discussing negative facts about Israel and its treatment of Palestinians.

Campaign to infiltrate Wikipedia

Several years ago, another project came to light that targeted Wikipedia. While manipulating Wikipedia entries doesn’t directly impact YouTube, it provides a window into some of these efforts to manipulate online content.

A 2008 exposé in the Electronic Intifada revealed: “A pro-Israel pressure group is orchestrating a secret, long-term campaign to infiltrate the popular online encyclopedia Wikipedia.”

While it is common and appropriate for individuals to edit Wikipedia entries to add factual information and remove inaccurate statements, this project was the antithesis of such editing. As EI, reported, its purpose was “to rewrite Palestinian history, pass off crude propaganda as fact, and take over Wikipedia administrative structures to ensure these changes go either undetected or unchallenged.”

Author Ali Abunimah reported that a source had provided EI with a series of emails from members and associates of the pro-Israel group CAMERA (Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America) that showed the group “was engaged in what one activist termed a ‘war’ on Wikipedia.”

CAMERA Senior Research Analyst Gilead Ini organized a project to infiltrate Wikipedia.

CAMERA called for volunteers to secretly work on editing Wikipedia entries. It emphasized the importance of keeping the project secret. Volunteers were schooled in ways to elude detection. After they signed up as editors, they were to “avoid editing Israel-related articles for a short period of time.”

They were also told to “avoid, for obvious reasons, picking a username that marks you as pro-Israel, or that lets people know your real name.”

CAMERA also warned them: “Don’t forget to always log in… If you make changes while not logged in, Wikipedia will record your computer’s IP address.”

A Wikipedia editor known as Zeq helped in the effort, telling volunteers: “Edit articles at random, make friends not enemies—we will need them later on. This is a marathon not a sprint.” He emphasized the importance of secrecy: “You don’t want to be precived [sic] as a ‘CAMERA’ defender’ on wikipedia that is for sure.”

Zeq recommended that they work with and learn from an independent, pro-Israel Wikipedia editor known as Jayjg, but directed them to keep the project secret even from him.

When this all came to light, Wikipedia took measures against such manipulation of its system and the CAMERA program may have ended.

If it did, others stepped into the breach. In 2010 two Israeli groups began offering a course in “Zionist editing” of Wikipedia entries. The aim was “to make sure that information in the online encyclopedia reflects the worldview of Zionist groups.” A course organizer explained that the use of the word “occupied” in Wikipedia entries “was just the kind of problem she hoped a new team of editors could help fix.”

Israel’s Ha’aretz newspaper reported: “The organizers’ aim was twofold: to affect Israeli public opinion by having people who share their ideological viewpoint take part in writing and editing for the Hebrew version, and to write in English so Israel’s image can be bolstered abroad.”

There was to be a prize for the “Best Zionist Editor”—the person who over the next four years incorporated the most “Zionist” changes in the encyclopedia. The winner would receive a trip in a hot-air balloon over Israel.

High tech millionaire Naftali Bennett, a right-wing minister close to the settler movement, describes the program:

The UK Guardian reports: “One Jerusalem-based Wikipedia editor, who doesn’t want to be named, said that publicising the initiative might not be such a good idea. ‘Going public in the past has had a bad effect,’ she says. ‘There is a war going on and unfortunately the way to fight it has to be underground.’”

Again in 2013, there was evidence of pro-Israel tampering with Wikipedia. Israel’s Ha’aretz reported that a social-media employee of NGO Monitor edited articles about the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in an allegedly biased manner. “Draiman concealed the facts that he was an employee of NGO Monitor, often described as a right-wing group, and that he was using a second username, which is forbidden under Wikipedia’s rules,” according to the paper.

Such actions have had an impact. A website critical of Wikipedia said in 2014 that there were “almost ten times as many articles about murdered Israeli children as there are articles about murdered Palestinian children,” even though at least 10 times more Palestinian children had been killed.

The website also pointed out: “While editors like Zeq (TCL) and CltFn (TCL) may get banned in the end, the articles they started remain.”

If YouTube reviewers and others use Wikipedia in their determination about whether content should be removed or not, these efforts to censor Wikipedia could adversely affect their decisions.

Social Media Missions for Israel
Title image from Forward article about the Act.IL campaign.

In 2017 yet another project to target Internet platforms was launched. Known as, the project uses a software application that “leverages the power of communities to support Israel through organized online activity.”

The software is a joint venture of three groups: Israel’s IDC University; the Israeli American Council, which works to “organize and activate” the half million Israeli-Americans who live in the U.S.; and another American group called the Maccabee Task Force, created to combat the international boycott of Israel, which it terms “an anti-Semitic movement.” Maccabee says it is “laser focused on one core mission—to ensure that those who seek to delegitimize Israel and demonize the Jewish people are confronted, combatted and defeated.”

Image from Maccabee end of year report.

In addition, the project is supported by Israel’s Strategic Affairs Ministry and Israel’s intelligence community. Its CEO is an eight-year veteran of Israeli army intelligence.

Israel’s Jerusalem Post reports that Act.IL is “a wide-ranging grassroots campaign app that lets individuals combat BDS in the palm of their hand” or, as we will see, from public computers in the US.

“Act.IL is more than just an app,” the Post article explains. “It is a campaign that taps into the collective knowledge of IDC students who together speak 35 languages, hail from 86 countries and have connections to the pro-Israel community all over the world.”

The article claims: “A platform like Act.IL offers world Jewry an opportunity to fight for one thing the majority can rally behind: Israel.” (This ignores the fact that there are many Jewish individuals who oppose Israeli policies.)

Israel partisans around the world download the app, and then “in this virtual situation room of experts, they detect instances where Israel is being assailed online and they program the app to find missions that can be carried out with a push of a button.”

An organizer notes: “When you work together, with the same goals and values, you can be incredibly powerful in the social media landscape.”

Some missions ask users to report videos. Israeli government officials say that the app “is more effective than official government requests at getting those videos removed from online platforms.”

The project is led by former Israeli intelligence officers and has close ties to American casino billionaire Sheldon Adelson. Another funder is the Paul R. Singer Foundation, funded by the Republican hedge fund billionaire.

The Forward calls Act.IL a new entry into the “online propaganda war” that “has thousands of mostly U.S.-based volunteers who can be directed from Israel into a social media swarm.”

According to the Forward, “Its work so far offers a startling glimpse of how it could shape the online conversations about Israel without ever showing its hand.”

The Forward reports: “ says that its app has 12,000 sign-ups so far, and 6,000 regular users. The users are located all over the world, though the majority of them appear to be in the United States. Users get ‘points’ for completed missions; top-ranked users complete five or six missions a day. Top users win prizes: a congratulatory letter from a government minister, or a doll of David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s founding prime minister.”

Act.IL’s CEO, a veteran Israeli army intelligence officer, said the Israeli military and its domestic intelligence service “‘request’’s help in getting services like Facebook to remove specific videos that call for violence against Jews or Israelis.” This according to the Forward report.

The officer later tried to walk back his statement, “saying that the Shin Bet [intelligence service] and the army don’t request help on specific videos but are in regular informal contact with He said that’s staff is largely made up of former Israeli intelligence officers.”

Teens in American JCCs carry out missions assigned from Israel
New Jersey “Media Room,” a project of IAC New Jersey in partnership with Act.IL.

The project recruits Jewish teens and adults and sometimes operates out of local Jewish community centers, the Forward says. The paper describes one example:

“The dozen or so Israelis sitting around a conference table at a Jewish community center in Tenafly, New Jersey, on a recent Wednesday night didn’t look like the leading edge of a new Israeli government-linked crowdsourced online propaganda campaign.

“Tapping on laptops, the group of high school students and adult mentors completed social media ‘missions’ assigned out of a headquarters in Herzliya, Israel.”

In addition to the Tenafly “media room” another operates in Boston in cooperation with the Combined Jewish Philanthropies of Greater Boston. There are also regular advocacy-training sessions at The Frisch School, a Jewish day school in Paramas, New Jersey. Other media rooms are reportedly in the works, with one in Manhattan, hosted by The Paul R. Singer Foundation, scheduled to open soon.

The Forward reports: “In November, the Boston media room created a mission for the app that asked users to email a Boston-area church to complain about a screening there of a documentary that is critical of Israel. The proposed text of the email likens the screening of the film to the white supremacist riot in Charlottesville, Virginia, and calls the film’s narrator, Pink Floyd frontman Roger Waters, a ‘well-known anti-Semite.’”

Photo of Boston Media Room published by Combined Jewish Philanthropies of Greater Boston, which states: “Media Room Ambassadors are students and adult mentors who are trained with the knowledge, skills, and tools to positively influence public discourse by developing pro-Israel social media campaigns.”

According to the Forward, also produces “pro-Israel web content that carries no logo. It distributes that content to other pro-Israel groups, including the Adelson-funded Jewish fraternity Alpha Epsilon Pi and The Israel Project, which push them out on their own social media feeds.”

The Forward predicts: “Initiatives in cyberspace seem likely to increase.”

Israeli media report that the Israeli military “has begun scouring Jewish communities abroad for young computer prodigies” to recruit for its ranks.

An Israeli official described the process: “Our first order of business is to search Jewish communities abroad for teens who could qualify, Our representatives will then travel to the communities and begin the screening process there.”

Israeli Government Ministry backs secret online campaigns
General Sima Vaknin-Gil told Israeli tech developers to “flood the Internet” with pro-Israel propaganda. As Israel’s Chief Censor, she said: ” “We censor information that is critical to our enemies, who have no capabilities like us, do not have a Jewish brain, and therefore our enemy relies to a large extent on open information…”

Israel’s Strategic Affairs Ministry, which is behind this and similar projects, has mobilized substantial resources for online activities.

Israel’s Ynet news reports that the Ministry’s director “sees it as a war for all intents and purposes. ‘The delegitimization against the State of Israel can be curbed and contained through public diplomacy and soft tools,’ she says. ‘In order to win, however, we must use tricks and craftiness.’”

The director, General Sima Vaknin-Gil, told a forum of Israeli tech developers at a forum: “I want to create a community of fighters.” The objective is to “curb the activities of anti-Israel activists,” and “flood the Internet” with pro-Israel content.


An Israeli report in December stated that the ministry has acquired a budget of roughly \$70 million to “stand at the forefront of the battle against delegitimization, adopting methods from the fields of intelligence and technology. There is a reason why ministry officials define it as ‘a war on consciousness terrorism.’” [‘Delegitimization’ is a common Israeli term for criticism of Israel. See here for a discussion of the term.]

A Ha’aretz article reports: “The Strategic Affairs Ministry’s leaders see themselves as the heads of a commando unit, gathering and disseminating information about ‘supporters of the delegitimization of Israel’—and they prefer their actions be kept secret.”

The article reports that the Ministry includes a job role entitled “Senior official—new-media realm,” responsible for surveillance and activities “in the digital realm.”

This individual head is responsible for analyzing social media and formulating a social media campaign against sites and activists who are deemed a threat to Israel.

Among the job’s responsibilities are:

“Analysis of the world of social media, in terms of content, technology and network structure, emphasizing centers of gravity and focuses of influence, methods, messages, organizations, sites and key activists, studying their characteristics, areas, realms and key patterns of activities of the rival campaign and formulating a strategy for an awareness campaign against them in this realm and managing crises on social media. That is, surveilling of activities mainly in the digital arena.”

Officials at the ministry are charged with “construction and promotion of creative and suitable programs for new media.”

The unit works to keep its activities secret from the public. For example, a program to train young Israelis for activities on social media was exempted from publishing a public bid for funding. Similarly, the ministry’s special unit against delegitimization, “Hama’aracha” (The Battle), is excluded from Israel’s Freedom of Information Law.

The 29th floor of Tel Aviv’s Champion Tower is the nerve center of a 24-7 ‘war’ in which Israeli agents working behind the scenes advance U.S. legislation, torpedo events, organize counter-protests, & close bank accounts.. The Director says: ‘In order to win we must use tricks and craftiness.’

Its activities reportedly include a “24/7 operations room monitoring all the delegitimization activities against Israel: Protests, conferences, publications calling for an anti-Israel boycott and international bodies’ boycott initiatives. The operations room will transfer the information to the relevant people to provide a proper response to these activities, whether through a counter-protest or through moves to thwart the initiative behind the scenes.”

Other programs include a 22-million-shekel project to work among labor unions and professional associations abroad “to root out the ability of BDS entities to influence the unions,” and a 16-million-shekel program focused on student activities throughout the world.

Israel’s UNIT 8200
Photo from article about Unit 8200 on Britain Israel Communications and Research Centre website.

Another Israeli entity that plays a role in covert Internet activity is the Israeli military’s legendary high-tech spy branch, Unit 8200. This unit is composed of thousands of “cyber warriors” primarily 18 to 21 years of age; some even younger. A number of its graduates have gone on to top positions at tech companies operating in the U.S., such as Check Point Software (where the spouse of the Jewish Voice for Peace head is employed as a solutions architect).

In 2015 Israel’s Foreign Ministry announced plans “to establish a special command to combat anti-Israel incitement on social media.” The command would operate under the foreign ministry’s hasbara [propaganda] department and would especially recruit from graduates of Unit 8200.

An article in the Jewish Press about the new command reports that Unit 8200 “has developed a great reputation for effectiveness in intelligence gathering, including operating a massive global spy network. Several alumni of 8200 have gone on to establish leading Israeli IT companies, including Check Point, ICQ, Palo Alto Networks, NICE, AudioCodes, Gilat, Leadspace, EZchip, Onavo, Singular and CyberArk.”

Check Point Software headquarters in Tel Aviv. Founded by a former Unit 8200 member, it also has offices throughout the U.S. Israeli tech companies sometimes assist in online spying efforts.

Numerous Israeli tech companies, many of them headed by former military intelligence officers, assist in these online spying efforts, sometimes receiving Israeli government funding “for digital initiatives aimed at gathering intelligence on activist groups and countering their efforts.”

According to the ministry’s statement, among the Command’s activities is finding videos with inflammatory content and issuing complaints to the relevant websites.”

To be clear, this is an occupying military working covertly to achieve censorship of reporting on its atrocities.

YouTube & Google officials meet with Israeli Minister
YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki speaking to the Israel Collaboration Network’s Israeli Women in Tech Group on August 25, 2016.

Major Internet companies have reportedly been cooperating in this effort.

In 2015 Israel’s Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely announced that she had visited Silicon Valley and met with YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki and Google’s Director of Public Policy (it is unclear whether this was was Jennifer Oztzistzki or Juniper Downs; Hotovely’s announcement referred to “Jennifer Downs”).

“At the end of the meeting,” Israeli media reported, “it was agreed that Google would strengthen bilateral relations with the Foreign Ministry and build a collaborative work apparatus.”

Another Israeli news report about the meeting states: “…it was agreed that the companies would strengthen ties with the Foreign Ministry and build a regular mechanism of control to prevent the distribution of those incendiary materials on the network.”

Google, which owns YouTube, denied the Foreign Ministry’s report. The Ministry accordingly “clarified” its statement somewhat, but continued to say that Israeli officials would be in “regular contact with Google’s employees in Israel who deal with the problematic materials.”

Such officials often have close ties to Israel. For example, Facebook’s Head of Policy in Israel, Jordana Cutler, had previously been employed for many years by the Israeli government. (More about Facebook can be found here.)

The Linkedin page for Facebook’s Jordana Cutler

The meetings seem to have had a significant effect.

In 2016 Fortune magazine reported: “Facebook, Google, and YouTube are complying with up to 95% of Israeli requests to delete content that the government says incites Palestinian violence, Israel’s Justice Minister said on Monday.”

More recently, the Israeli Ministry of Justice said that its cyber unit handled 2,241 cases of online content and succeeded in getting 70 percent of it removed.

According to a 2017 report, Google, in its capacity as the operator of Youtube, announced that it was updating the steps it was already taking on this score.

Among other things, Google said it would increase the number of members of the “Trusted Flagger program,” which enables certain organizations and government agencies to report content. It also said it would “increase support for NGOs and organizations working to present a ‘corrective voice.’”

Given the record of infiltration and orchestrated activities described above—many financed by a combination of certain influential billionaires and the Israeli government itself—it’s hard to imagine that Israeli organizations and partisans are not thoroughly embedded in this program. In fact, one of the NGOs already working with YouTube as a “trusted flagger” is the Anti-Defamation League, whose mission includes ‘standing up for Israel.’

Anti-Defamation League celebrates Israel at 2017 New York City parade.

A leaked secret January 2017 ADL strategy paper detailed how to counter the pro-Palestine movement. Among its many strategies were some focused on the importance of efforts in cyber space.

The paper was produced in collaboration with the Reut Institute, an Israeli think tank, and included an endorsement by Sima Vaknin-Gil, who stated that “the correlation between the Ministry’s mode of operation and what comes out of this document is very high, and has already proven effective… ”

The document’s executive summary noted: “Cyberspace, broadly defined, stands out as a crucially important arena (for monitoring and counter and pro-active strategies) which requires more resources and attention due to its current influence, rapid growth and growing complexity.”

The paper called for “a mix of policy advocacy and industry engagement with corporations such as Google, Facebook, and Twitter in a manner consistent with the ADL Center for Technology and Society and its Anti-Cyberhate Working Group.”

An illustration in the ADL-Reut working paper on improving Israel advocacy. It noted: “While the pro-Israel network increasingly is active in this domain, much more can be done.”

The paper also recommended: “‘Bottom-up efforts’ of crowd-sourcing to enhance the adaptive capacity of the pro-Israel network.”

At the same time, it urged:

“Strengthening pro-Israel organizations that mobilize and coordinate a network of ‘nodes’ e.g. Jewish Community Public Affairs (JCPA) and its network of Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRCs) in the USA; Hillel, which is present in nearly five hundred locations in the U.S. and globally; the Israel Action Network (IAN) that reaches nearly 160 federations in the U.S.; or the Jewish Congress (WJC) that represents dozens of Jewish communities around the world.”

The detailed, 32-page document reported that in recent years “a massive investment of resources and talent” had been directed against the pro-Palestine movement. One of the results, the paper said, was to create a “world-wide pro-Israel network.” It was this network that the report wished to mobilize. One of the paper’s concerns was that since Israel’s 2014 attack on Gaza “a growing number of Jews have become more critical of Israel.”

The document recommended a degree of stealth, noting: “high-visibility response by the pro-Israel side can be counterproductive.”

What this means

Nevertheless, despite all these forces arrayed against information about Palestine reaching the American public, our channel is back up on YouTube. In fact, we’ve just uploaded a new video:

This one is about the death of a nine-year-old boy. [Perhaps the Israeli government would consider this incitement to Palestinians to rebel against occupation; we see it as incitement to the world in general, and Americans in particular, to care.]

In other words, Israel’s efforts at censorship don’t always succeed.

But sometimes they do, and other YouTube users have not always been so fortunate. For example, YouTube has terminated several Palestinian news organizations.

One was the al-Quds network, which, according to a report in Middle East Eye, “relies on young reporters and volunteers using phones and other digital devices to cover local news across the Palestinian territories.” They would often report Israeli soldiers committing various human rights violations.

Its YouTube channel was terminated in 2011, and its editor says they had to “to create a new channel from scratch.” By 2017 its new channel had gained almost 10 million views before it was suddenly suspended without warning again last October. It now, however, appears to have a YouTube channel in operation.

According to the MEE report, YouTube also suspended the Filisten al-Youm TV channel last August, and in 2013, apparently following complaints by the Anti-Defamation League, YouTube closed down Iran’s PressTV channel. (A Press TV YouTube channel now also appears to be available again.)

Palestinian social media users risk even greater consequences.

The Israeli government has arrested Palestinians for videos, poems, and other posts it dislikes. A 2016 report estimated that “more than 150 arrests took place between October and February 2016 based on Facebook posts expressing opinions on the uprising. A recent video posted on social media led to the imprisonment of a 16 year old girl, her mother and cousin.

In addition, Palestinian access to social media is somewhat controlled by Israel. As a Huffington Post article reports, ”Palestinians’ digital rights and access to the Internet are compromised in very basic ways, because Israel controls the infrastructure and services of Palestinian telecommunication companies in the West Bank.”

While the situation has greatly improved in recent years – the Israeli government finally announced in 2016 that it would allow Palestinians in the West Bank to access 3G wireless networks, making this one of the last regions in the world with such access after years of Israeli restrictions – it is important to remember the enormous power Israel wields over this largely captive population.

While Israel is able to organize entire campaigns to filter and flood social media, its immense control over Palestinians impedes their access to the same media.

Given these facts, it is extremely important for people to search out information for themselves, go directly to our websites and others, subscribe to diverse email lists, and not rely on social media for information. [Please subscribe to our news posts here.]

Facebook, YouTube, Twitter and others are private companies. In the end, they have the power to censor information, and they periodically do so. For a few days, we felt acutely what that was like. If Facebook had joined the ban, as has happened with others, we would have been even more cut off from what is essentially today’s “public square.”

The Internet and social media give us far more access to information and tools for communication and activism than ever before, but they, too, can be controlled—and they are.

It is up to us, as always, to overcome.

Our videos are also being uploaded to Daily Motion, Vimeo, and BitChute, and many are already on our news blog, Timeline, and main website, where all of them will eventually be available.

    Hi Alison Weir, the situation is much worse: they attack the computers of people who oppose their power. Two years ago, immediately after I had an online row with Esther Voet, who is an important zionist in the Netherlands, my computer was uncontrollable for at least an hour. Hard disk ticking, doing its tasks very slowly etc., as if it had a virus. I had precisely the same phenomenon a couple of months ago, when I reacted to a YouTube video of Vincent Reynouard, a famous French dissident.

    Goggle is totally under Jewish Israeli control. I first noticed they changed their search results back in 2006.

    To illustrate do this….enter Muslim terrorist–you will get results for Muslim terrorist. Then enter Jewish terrorist—you will get 250,000 hits for ‘terrorist attacks on Jews’..not Jewish terrorist.
    Enter for example ‘text document of US-Israel MOU of 1973’ —you will get zero–only some general sites referring to it.
    Goggle has buried access to thousands of the original official documents concerning Israel —-whereas before something like the 1973 MOU would come up immediately you now have to know the exact government agency it comes under then go to that agency and search for it in the archives—very time consuming and most people wont do that.

    Goggle has also listed Jerusalem as the capitol of Israel for several years now.

  8. Any time Israel is in propaganda trouble, lots of jews are recruited to write on any site, in any language.
    Long ago Israel paid \$ 3.5 or \$ 4.5 dollar per comment.
    But this trick is losing effectiveness, as regular commenters notice that when the need is there all of a sudden new commenters pop up, pro Israel.
    They are recognised immediately.
    When the crisis is over, they disappear.

    A few primate remarks.

    Why in the first place rely on intermediates: wikkipedant, fecesbook, tweeter, gaggle, gagglemail, and not systemically divert readers to an ip and serving simple pages? As a two-step, a “real” full text search engine, that scrapes all of these pages, a search engine ruled by free, and open source code. Why not open for review the map of internet hardware on a real time basis for the whole of the internet. All of this without interference of the human intermediate predator-victim-greedmonger.

    The short answer, to tango, we need to be two …at least. Meaning the level to which to up understanding of the digital and internet goes beyond human average comprehension, probably because of lack of formal learning, lastly because of lack of cognitive ability(of course, and “intellectuals” mostly included, how can one pose as “harvard” or “jale” when no cognizance of man – machine communication is present). If at that, the one side pushes information, it then needs to be accredited for at the receiving end, too much to ever dream of. Could it be added that if never, the internet and information permeability would become a dead zone for greed, and instead of an asset to the few for “scraping” the bucket of commoners, a dime at a time, would become a liability to them, and an asset for escaping the commoner fairy tale, an asset for outliers and “unacceptable ideas” . What it should be to beat the barrier of “technology neutral”.

    As for manually editing, and yoursteevee cancelling of “your channel”, primitive indeed. Little to be learned there, seeing a trap, sticking one’s head in there, do it repeatedly, …and denouncing the trap according to individual preference, is lame. Pi-spool, patron, the Amazons, name them, who prey on “dumbstruck masses”(not our term, not to be at risk of censoring by an unknown anonymous).

    Intellectual languor, consumer tales applied to information, the lay of the land.

    Again(not a first in denouncing), the 99.5 of universally shared DNA material might be the matter, meaning lack of comprehension of human interests on both, elites’ and commoner’ side. As a prediction, the “problem” will get worse, in an escalating manner, the battle to “control” the internet is won.

    The browser becoming a server, of the client in all of his nudity(some people surf the “internet” in underware), just one more example of two way manipulation of proprietary hardware. Share!, share!, share.

  10. Excellent article. It is also heartening to see Alison Weir on UNZ. For the better part of two decades, she has been doing meticulous research on the corrupting impact of pro-Zionist political activism. And her job has not been easy.

    Weir has had her character impugned, her scholarship marginalized, and she has faced unscrupulous opposition in countless instances. But she has prevailed.

    Typically, Judeo-supremacists refuse to debate Ms. Weir or her political allies since this tactic would shed far too much light on Israeli behavior as well as its unsavory core beliefs. Thus, Weir and others like her are routinely ignored and/or ridiculed. I suspect Ron Unz gets similar treatment.

    Free speech (when it goes both ways) is the enemy of Zion.

    So the Zionist message is this: Shut up.

    Indeed, Israel’s multi-faceted campaigns to propagandize, intimidate and censor are legendary, though rarely discussed in our ‘mainstream media’. The deafening silence here is no accident. It is a calculated end-product of Jewish-cultivated taboos.

    Weir’s report gives us a rare glimpse into the Talmudic State’s secret world of information manipulation. Her discoveries however are as worrisome as they are explosive. And what she reveals may be just the tip of the iceberg.

    When one factors in the amount of money that flows into Washington from pro-Israel lobbies, billionaires, and NGOs, it is clear that Israel plays a far bigger role in US elections than Russia could ever even dream about. But unique taboos protect Israel from any scrutiny in this area.

    Witness Israel’s organizational prowess and real-world success in shaping, restricting and dominating political discourse. The level of control is both infuriating and chilling. Taking on the Israel Lobby has ruined countess careers. In the case of Palestine, countless lives have been lost or ruined. Countless.

    On top of that, since many crypto-Israelis own/manage/operate new media institutions such as Facebook, YouTube and Google (in addition to most of our ‘mainstream’ media) open political discourse in America is under increasing pressure. There are some things you simply cannot discuss. Don’t say that word!

    (((Liberals))) call it ‘Hate Speech’.

    Indeed, not only do our guardians of discourse hate certain words and concepts, but some of these speech regulators want to put you in jail just for uttering them

    Thus, publicly discussing the JQ is next-to-impossible. (Unless it’s an all-Jewish panel of ‘experts’)

    But if simple ‘truth’ was a primary political value in America, today’s information titans would be supporting–and maybe even sponsoring–open discussions on this subject. Why not?

    What better way to arrive a truth and understanding than free and open exchange of facts, opinions and ideas?

    But it’s not so simple. These lofty objectives are no longer tantamount. What’s become a top US priority is maintaining the pro-Zionist status quo. But achieving this will require, among other things, increased censorship. The stakes are huge.

    And So far, the other side is winning.

    One request to Alison Weir: Please avoid using the insidious and manipulative term ‘antisemitism’. (Please note that it was recently spelled ‘anti-Semitism’, but Jewish leaders realized that
    ‘anti-Semitism’ is not anti- ‘Semites’ at all. It’s simply anti- Jews. So the charde was up. What to do? Change the spelling.

    So the term is now just ‘antisemitism’ (no hyphen). This reduces the semitic nature of the ‘disease’ while maintaining the term’s powerful, diagnostic authority.)

    So the pseudo-scientific term, ‘antisemitism’ is still with us. It has been concocted and popularized however for purely political reasons. It’s also been insidiously conflated with ‘genocide’. Very crafty. Very manipulative.

    But the simple truth is this: ‘anti-Semites’, are not ‘anti-semitic’; they are simply anti-Jewish. (And sometimes is for a damned good reason.)

    Despite myths to the contrary, anti-Jewishnes (anti-Semitism’) is not a virus or a psychological illness. it reflects an attitude; often an informed attitude. Nothing more.

    But they want you to feel ashamed.


    Besides, no thought or attitude or belief should ever be criminalized. What matters is conduct. Behavior. Words may bruise but it is physical behavior that maims and kills.

    So please resist the deceptive efforts to manage speech, Ms Weir. This includes circulating the insidious term, ‘antisemitism’. Thank you!

  20. It is depressing that the monster seems to be winning.

    That is what it is.
    That is what each and every participant in these programs is part of, the monster.

    Psychologically conditioned/tortured from birth to accept the necessity of discrimination, hatred, impunity and systematic lying and deception against all out-groups, the vast majority of humanity, even if it means destroying all.
    This is what is at the root of being a jew, The Cult of Moloch.

    Of course, the more appropriate description of the international collective is: Torah-Pharisees-Talmud extremists adherents, there is nothing spiritual about it, it is an extreme, maniacal form of cultural narcissism.

    One day, maybe even one day soon, this extreme hateful discrimination will be made illegal on the planet; the day cannot come soon enough.

    The illegitimacy of the occupation of the Palestinian lands by the zionists/Torah-Pharisees-Talmud extremists is beyond doubt in a fact-based, equitable universe; it is a blight upon humanity.

    Every one should know the facts about Deir Yasin

    Some quotes from a coherent Israeli scholar, Yuval Harari, his book, “Sapiens
    p. 195 It’s for your own good: “… Evolution has made Homo sapiens. like other social mammals, a xenophobic creature. Sapiens instinctively divide humanity into two parts, ‘we’ and ‘they’. We are people like you and me, who share our language, religion and customs. We are all responsible for each other, but not responsible for them. We were always distinct from them, we owe them nothing. We don’t want to see any of them in our territory, and we don’t care an iota what happens in their territory. They are barely even human. …
    p. 242 Blind Clio: “… Ever more scholars see cultures as a kind of mental infection or parasite, with humans as its unwitting host. Organic parasites, such as viruses, live inside the body of their host. They multiply and spread from one host to the other, feeding off their hosts, weakening them, and sometimes killing them. As long as the hosts live long enough to pass along the parasite, it cares little about the condition of its host. In just this fashion, cultural ideas live inside the minds of humans. They multiply and spread from one host to another, occasionally weakening the host and sometimes even killing them. … – can compel a human to dedicate his or her life to spreading that idea, even at the price of death. The human dies, but the idea spreads. …. … Successful cultures are those that excel in reproducing their memes, irrespective of the costs and benefits to their human hosts. … Similar arguments are common in the social sciences, under the aegis of game theory. Game theory explains how in multi-player systems, views and behaviour patterns that harm all players nevertheless manage to take root and spread. …

    Each and every participant in these perception manipulation programs, yes, we know that you reading this, is committing crimes against humanity, and one day, on this world or hereafter, you will be called for these sins.

    How much more of this infection can the planet stand?!

    I urge all people, including self-identifying jews to research and fully understand what this is.
    Regardless of the perception management which has been inflicted upon you, the best place to start with a fact-based review of the historic progress and impartial analysis is the seminal work by Douglas Reed, “The Controversy of Zion“, unfortunately censored (surprise, surprise), but available online using the keywords in a search.
    Please protect your identity as best as possible, since those referred to in this article are monitoring, keeping records, and taking punitive actions.

    I honestly, and with good intentions only, believe that many self-identifying jews would renounce this religion if they knew the facts.

    If you are working for one (or more) of these perception management organizations, (i.e. deception organizations), don’t you think it is incumbent upon you to really know about that for which you fight (so dirtily)?!

    Why not read it?!
    What are you afraid of?

    There are the votes with UN and Unesco, where Israel is isolated more and more.

    Then there is the increasing number of Israel critical comments, in the USA, in Germany, in the Netherlands, despite all efforts by jews to control these.
    Just now the anti Soros president of Hungary was re-elected.

    Forgot what incident it was, where, on a generally pro jewish Dutch site, there was so much negative comment on Israel that someone exclaimed ‘this cannot be representative’.
    French jews feel so threatened that more an more leave France.
    In the Netherlands any jewish institute is guarded, even jewish restaurants want protection, after a few incidents.
    No Dutch jew goes into the street wearing the traditional jewish headdress.

    Last but not least, Trump may have good jewish connections, he’s not a jewish puppet.
    And, I read here, some 50% of the USA citizens now recognise that Deep State does exist.
    What, in my opinion, the zionists never anticipated is how Israel would advertise judaism.
    The holocaust is more than 70 year ago, the fairy tale of ‘land without people for people without land’ no longer is believed.

    Jewry in the present USA should ask themselves if the Weimar Republic situation resembles the USA situation.
    Jewish sociologist Stephen Steinlight already years ago feared immigration from the south ‘they did not know the holocaust, for them jews are just rich Americans’.
    But, wrote Steinlight, there is always the lifeboat Israel.
    Steinlight does not understand that this lifeboat is dependent on jewish influence in the USA.

    As I wrote before, around 1890 or so one Rothschild wrote to another ‘the only enemy of jews is jews’.

    Weird coincidence.
    I’m inclined to think no coincidence, if so, what a stupid reaction, proof of what the article says, what, except some particulars, is nothing new, as I explained.

    Felipe Fernández-Armesto, ‘Truth, A History and a Guide for the Perplexed’, New York 1997
    The book describes the development of the concept ‘truth’.
    The idea of an objective truth is relatively new, may have existed with people like Archimedes, he did experiments, but then disappeared until Galileo.
    Truth, most of the time was, and alas even today is, what a leader says.
    Around 1870 the catholic church expressed this explicitly, what the pope says is true.
    Some even today believe that.

    I often wondered if jews never left the ‘true is what the leader says’ idea.
    How they keep asserting obvious nonsense as truth, I cannot understand it.
    But there is the assertion that jews have a high capacity for self delusion.

    Arthur Koestler blamed jiddish for that jews of his time never said anything rational.
    I wonder if language was, maybe is, the cause.

    CNN journalist finally calls out Rand Paul for his obvious Nazi tendencies

    by failing to advocate for the bombing and utter destruction of Syria, he’s demonstrating his anti-Semitism – and why the Holocaust happened in the first place.

    at 2:10 into the video, the journalist says Paul’s reluctance to destroy Syria, demonstrates an “historical parallel”, going back to America’s reluctance to bomb the rail tracks leading to Auschwitz.

    clearly, Assad is Hitler, and if we don’t destroy Syria utterly, and plunge that nation into the abyss, (like we did Libya and Iraq), then Rand Paul is Himmler and wants to gas the Jews.

    Every day that the Golan Heights is not recognized by the UN as Israel’s sovereign and eternal lands, is a Holocaust!

    every day that Trump sits on his hands, more Jews are going into Assad’s ovens. (figuratively of course)

    and Rand Paul, by saying Trump doesn’t have a blank check to bomb anywhere he wants to- because of 9/11- is showing us all that Rand Paul is Himmler, reincarnated!

    wasn’t two thousand years of persecution enough for you Rand Paul?!

    wasn’t six million enough for you Rand Paul?!

    Yiddish is German. Many people apparently assume that Yiddish is some dialect of Hebrew or Aramaic with a few Germanic words and phrases. It is the opposite. Yiddish is Jewish German, a dialect of German.

    That Jews across many centuries and in multiple countries continued to use Yiddish as their main language is very telling. In Yiddish, Jews who were citizens of Russia wrote diatribes about the inferiority of all things Russian and Slavic to German language and culture.

    The 20th century saw the replacement of Yiddish as the language of Ashkenazi Jews with English. Angles and Saxons were Germanic. Old English is virtually identical to Old Continental Saxon.

    So what is the deal with Jews and things Germanic?

    If Koestler is correct in that assertion about Yiddish leading to Jews being irrational, then what is said about Jews and Germanic culture? And then, what is said about Jews and WASP culture (Angles and Saxons are Germans) and the Anglosphere?

    The moral midget of Jewish State has practiced all kinds of discrimination and all kinds of crime against non-Jews, which the Jews used to accuse of other people.
    As for the “solemn pledge of the medical profession,” it has been preempted by the policies of killing, torturing, mutilating, robbing, and keeping locked in the occupied territories the native population of Palestinians.
    What morality can be expected from the Moldovan thug Avigdor Lieberman? Or from your amoral Bibi and Herzog?

    Libertarians argue that since it is not government that is doing the censoring, it is all OK.

    REAL libertarians would never make such a silly argument.

    More than 100 years ago, it was well understood by everyone who cared that natural monopolies (rail, oil, etc.) can be far more oppressive within their spheres of influence than any government entity. Anti-trust laws were one of the responses.

    Another response is the doctrine of the “common carrier”: Greyhound, Google, Pacific Railroad, Facebook, United Airlines, Twitter etc. are NOT allowed to refuse service to people except in cases of narrowly defined OPERATIONAL reasons, e.g. a drunk and rowdy rail passenger. In particular, common carriers are NOT permitted to deny service based on a person’s political views.

    Arbitrary denial of service by Google, Facebook, Twitter and even domain name administrators is a gross violation of long-established EXISTING law.

    Similarly, informal cooperation among market-dominating monopolies such as the Amazon/Washington Times, Google/Youtube, Facebook etc. violates existing anti-trust laws and various other provisions of federal and state law.

    we started working from the operations room on a regular basis. We had a database of student volunteers from dozens of countries, and it became more and more organized. We started setting up departments: One department created pro-Israeli marketing content, another department found and marked online articles that required our attention, and a third department dealt with finding and reporting pages that incite against Israel.” … Within only two weeks, it was downloaded by over 6,000 people in 27 countries around the world …

    “In the months before the app’s launch, we ran it a pilot among a group of some 800 students, most of them Americans,” … During the pilot period, we were able to remove 2-5 inciting pages or videos every week. We’re working with the IDF [Israeli Defense Forces] and the Shin Bet [Israeli version of the FBI], who are giving us information on such inciting content, and even they couldn’t keep us with how fast we were getting things removed.” … “Companies, such as Facebook, remove content following reports from the community,” Ben-Yosef explains. “If there is only one person reporting it, he usually gets told by Facebook the content doesn’t meet the criteria for removal. If 300 report it—the content is removed immediately. As soon as content inciting against Israel is posted online, we send a message through the app and all of its subscribers immediately report it.” …

    “Students from the University of California (UC), where there are a lot of anti-Israel activists, came to us for help,” Briga says. “We organized a joint campaign, in which we opened Skype chats at the IDC and at UC campuses and we let random students just sit down and have a conversation with someone from here [Israel].

    I remember this phenomenon way back in the mid-’90s, when any web page even remotely critical of israel or the jews would disappear within about 2 hours.

    Of course, back then there weren’t anywhere near the numbers of web sites and web pages to censor — they had it pretty easy back then.

    As someone commented in these pages in the past couple months, quoting someone or another — if you want to find out who’s really in power, find out who you cannot speak against.

    Good points. I have often suspected that part of hasbara operations includes posting anti-semitic material that they then “discover” and attack with gusto for propaganda purposes.

And having a cartoonish Jew super-villain to take the fall makes a complicated and ambiguous world easy to understand and explain. No self-reflection and thinking required.

    This kind of nutty paranoia and magical thinking is more a cognitive dissonance avoidance strategy than an expression of deep seated anti-semitism but it provides fodder for the hasbara propaganda mill which can easily paint these cranks as hardcore Jew haters.

    The influence and respect that Zionist Jews enjoy in western society is unmatched by any other religious, cultural or ethnic group and a big enough challenge as it is.

    Very simple. I just noticed that the print media hated Assad Sr. So I knew he must be the good guy. Same thing with that war in Kosovo Serbia and Croatia in the 90s. Print media claimed Muslims good Serbians and Croatians bad.

    So I knew the Kosovians were Muslim supremacists getting a religious and human trafficking smuggling drug and weapons dealing criminal enterprise into Europe. And the non Muslim countries were just fighting against invasion.

    Like most elderly enlightenment still fighting the reformation anti catholic old communist useful idiot “ intellectuals” you got it totally wrong about what the Pope said around 1870.

    The Catholic Church never stated that the what the Pope said was true.

    What was stated was that the Pope was the supreme arbiter of matters of Catholic doctrine, faith and morals.

    The Pope is always right about specifically catholic doctrine only as it applies to faith morals.

    The Pope has no authority nor pretensions to, other religions and or secular positions on this or that.

    Being such a great intellectual and historian albeit biased and prejudiced you might look into your own pathetic little country’s history.

    Shortly after the return to the Old Testament known as the reformation, your own Dutch reformed cities and provinces invited the Jewish insurers who had been expelled from Spain in
    From their base in Amsterdam the Jewish usurpers backed by the Dutch Reformed church took over England and N Europe.

    Sorry old man, you can’t be anti Israel, anti Jewish influence and anti catholic at the same time.

    Who fought communism for 70 years? The Catholics. Which churches joined a notorious soviet communist front the World Conference of Churches?

    Every stupid Protestant church in the world despite that it was well known that the WCC was a soviet communist front.

    Do you have any idea how ancient and old fashioned your pseudo intellectual anti Catholicism is? You sound like a 1930s Jewish communist professor.

    And who cares about this Pope. He’ll be dead soon. Didn’t the tiny insignificant Netherlands recognize Israel in the 1940s? And didn’t the Vatican refuse to recognize Israel until very recently?

    Making snide remarks about the one organization on earth that fought detrimental Jewish influence in Europe for 16,00 years and fought the Soviet Union while most Protestant churches gladly joined a well known soviet communist front just shows you are a brainwashed leftist pseudo intellectual

    Finally on the early 1930s Stalin realized that a Yiddish speaking NYC organization wouldn’t make much progress in an English speaking nation.

    So Stalin decreed 4 rules:

    1 the CPUSA headquarters be moved from Jewish NYC to Chicago.

    2. That the communists learn English and use it in personal and official CPUSS life And all meeting and publications be in English.

    3. That Jews be no more than 40 percent of the CPUSA instead of 80 to 90 percent as it was during the 19 teens and 20s.

    4. That the head of the CPUSA not be a Jew or have Jewish grandparents. Which is how they got Gus Hall for decades as there were so few goyim to hold that office.

    And what American organization fought communism all those years while the government hired thousands of them and useful idiot pseudo intellectuals worshipped the CPUSA

    Not sure what point you are trying to make here. That Muslims don’t fully understand what is required of them, as commanded of us by the Almighty One?

    True Muslims live by the following verse;

    And those who have believed and done righteous deeds – We will surely assign to them of Paradise [elevated] chambers beneath which rivers flow, wherein they abide eternally. Excellent is the reward of the [righteous] workers [29:58]

    Praying regularly is just one of the manifestations of, “those who have believed,” that is, belief in True Monotheism.

    Righteousness is refraining from the many ills of mankind; Murder, Rape, Intoxication, Promiscuity, Immodesty, Greed, Fraud, Thievery, Usury, Gambling, etc.

    Taking up arms against evil, if you are so inclined (and good for them, who do), is also righteousness in my view, if one does not cross the line between a just fight (any area of enemy military scope), and committing evil (slaughter of innocents).

    And, most Muslims do a pretty good job in some of those contexts (promiscuity, immodesty, gambling, etc.), while others require improvements (e.g. greed, bribery, etc.).

    Yiddish isn’t German even if they use many German words. I’ve read an article some years ago telling the history of historical research about Yiddish. There was an old theory that Yiddish was of German origin, but more modern ideas show that its origins is a turkish language. This is confirmed in any case by what Shlomo Sand says in his book about the origins of the Jewish people, a book that is a definitive about about this theme and also extremely interesting. Central European Jews didn’t come from Germany and then moved to the East. They came originally from West Asia and moved to East Europe.

    Hi # 257,

    Is it possible that the “old lefty,” j. dykstra, actually resents the present right-wing (conservative) intellectual wing of the ZUS Roman Catholic Church?

    Below is a rather waffling (deceitful?) new article written by the great Patrick Buchanan.

    An experienced politician,”revisionist” historian, author, Pat Buchanan knows that Trump’s presidential campaign was financially supported by billionaire Sheldon Adelson — a born-again character right out of the Protocols, & an uptown nut who wants Iran annihilated.

    PreZident Trump is not merely hooked by a “War Party.”

    Pat Buchanan knows better. Adelson and Jewish Neoconservatives are pulling Trump’s puppet strings. (Article below)

    Oh well, # 257, I offer suggestion that “old lefty,” j. dykstra, might actually despise the Vatican City Lowerarchy and ZUS Roman Catholic political-intellectuals, (other examples, Newt Gingrich, Jeb Bush, Governor Andy Cuomo), whose public deeds are regrettably opposite to those offered by Catholics, Philip Giraldi and Ray McGovern.

    Servus, # 257.

    j. dykstra might support the “lefty” work of the brave Chicago-based peace activist,
    Kathy Kelly. Her organization’s web site,, [email protected]. Kathy did months of jail time for protesting at a U.S. military base HQ that specialized in killing by drones. F.Y.I., I co-wrote an “Open Letter to the Catholic Church” which requested Pope Francis to meet with Kathy Kelly while he visited the U.S. Par for the course, not one Catholic magazine/web site published the open letter.

    How to make the Jews hated by any rational person:
    “The pandering to Jewish interests is widespread in the federal government and is bipartisan. Israel runs a large trade surplus with the United States because it has free access to the U.S. market and can also bid on government contracts, a privilege normally afforded only to NATO allies. Plus Washington foots the bill for more than 20% of Israeli defense spending, even allowing Israel to use American taxpayer provided dollars to buy weapons from its own defense industry, which competes with that of the U.S.
    Indeed, in the past year, there has been a virtual flood of legislation that has been favorable to Israel and some Jewish-related issues even though there is no actual interest in play for other Americans. On the contrary, much of the legislation actually denies to citizens and residents the Constitutional rights to free speech and freedom of association. The most recent legislation benefiting Israel and punishing Israel’s host of enemies was rolled into the omnibus spending bill that was signed into law on March 23rd. Israel received additional money for its “defense” while the Palestinians saw money going both to the Palestinian Authority as well as to the United Nations to help refugees in the Middle East cut dramatically.
    Twenty-four states are now requiring statements pledging not to boycott Israel from those citizens and organizations that receive government funding or even seek local government employment. Two bills in Congress also seek to define as anti-Semitism any criticism of Israel. On December 12th 2017 the Anti-Semitism Awareness Act was approved by the House of Representatives with 402 affirmative votes and only two libertarian-leaning congressmen voting “no.” The Israel Anti-Boycott Act that is also currently making its way through the Congress would far exceed what is happening at the state level and would set a new standard for deference to Israeli interests on the part of the national government. It would criminalize any U.S. citizen “engaged in interstate or foreign commerce” who supports a boycott of Israel or who even goes about “requesting the furnishing of information” regarding it, with penalties enforced through amendments of two existing laws, the Export Administration Act of 1979 and the Export-Import Act of 1945, that include potential fines of between \$250,000 and \$1 million and up to 20 years in prison.”

    Polish Atrocities against Germans before 1. September 1939

    “Poland wants war with Germany and Germany will not be able to avoid it even if she wants to.”
    – Polish Marshal Rydz-Smigly as reported in the Daily Mail, August 6th, 1939)


    ”under Polish pressure the Germans in the southern and eastern districts were subjected to oppressive treatment. On Aug. 19 1920 the Poles felt strong enough, indeed, to make an attempt to seize the country by force. On all sides bands of Poles, chiefly recruited from Congress Poland, usurped authority. A number of Germans were forcibly carried across the frontier into Poland, and many were killed. Several weeks elapsed before it was possible to quell this rising and restore order…It had been suggested by the Entente that non-resident Upper Silesians of the German Reich should vote outside Silesia, at Cologne. Germany protested against this, and her protest was recognized as valid by the Entente. In January 1921 the date of the plebiscite was fixed for March 20 1921.
    An immediate revival took place in the use of terrorism by the Poles, especially in the districts of Rybnik, Pless, Kattowitz, and Beuthen. It reached its climax in the days preceding the plebiscite. Voters from other parts of the German Reich were frequently refused admission to the polls; sometimes they were maltreated and even in some instances murdered; and houses where outvoters were staying were set on fire… The day after the plebiscite the Polish excesses recommenced, and from that date onwards continued without interruption… Practically all the towns voted for Germany… the first days of May witnessed a new Polish insurrection which assumed far greater proportions than the former one. Korfanty had secretly raised a well-organized Polish force which was provided with arms and munition from across the border, and was reinforced by large bodies of men from Poland…
    By June 20 the British troops had again occupied the larger towns, while the Poles had the upper hand in the rural districts. As a result of the difficulties in paying his men and providing them with food Korfanty now lost control over his followers. Independent bands were formed which plundered the villages, ill-treated the Germans, and murdered many of them.”

    Appears he appeals to a different demographic than those two groups; what do you have against diversity and multiculturalism, mcohen???

    re your closing sentiment, “think peace not hate.” Hate to sound cynical, but I don’t think you really mean that.
    OR maybe you subscribe to your co-ethno-religio-tribe member, self-proclaimed “proud Levite,” Michael Ledeen’s definition of peace:

    “Peace is not the opposite of war, it is the result of war. It’s what happens when a war is fought and one side beats the other side and the winning side imposes terms on the loser, and those terms are called peace and are generally hammered at a peace conference and sometimes it takes the form of a peace treaty.”

    You’ll get a kick outa this, mcohen: a Black guy called in to C Span Washington Journal and complained that C Span does not pay appropriate attention to what Jews in Israel are doing to Palestinians in Gaza, and also that Israel is expelling tens of thousands of Black Africans. He said, “We [Blacks] have supported Israel for years, and this is the thanks we get.”

    The C Span MOD basically ignored the comment — Move along, nothing to see — but you can be sure CAMERA will write it up and demand that C Span mend its ways or No Soup for You.

    But I thought it was interesting that the BLACK community is showing cracks in its slavish (isn’t it weird how words pop into your brain?) support for Jews and Israel, as if NAACP or BLM has ever done anything for them. Slowly the giant awakes.

    The Israeli “art students” — Mossad — were in the US to monitor and chaperone the coming 911 attack. The wanted it to succeed. They were ready to help. Perhaps they did help. They certainly danced in celebration on the day of the attack. The Zionist state is no friend of the US. In fact, it is no friend to anyone.

    Their are many problems confronting the Zionists in their information war. Among them:

    (1) Though very well organized, the Zionists effort is vastly outnumbered: thirty million Jews worldwide vs seven billion non-jews.
    (2) Though control of the mass media once enabled the dominance of the Zionist “narrative” (ie the big lie), the internet and smart phone cameras have ended that monopoly. It’s very nearly impossible to convince someone of a lie when they already know the truth and witness it daily with their own (lying?) eyes.
    (3) The underlying mental defect of garrison state, siege-mentality Zionism, that more violence will somehow solve the problem.
    (4) The decline of American power in the world, the decline of American support for Israel, growing awareness of disproportionate Israeli influence (ie “subversion”) of the American political system, and the decline of support for Israel by the younger generation of American Jews.
    (5) Other factors you might wish to add.

    (1) Though very well organized, the Zionists effort is vastly outnumbered: thirty million Jews worldwide vs seven billion non-jews.

    Irrelevant. Money buys votes, money buys support, money buys censorship, money buys total media control.

    Money wins, thus Israel wins. Every time.

  147. Hasbara trolls are easy to spot, now that I’ve had plenty of experience with their shamelessly dishonest (& relentlessly maudlin) behavior.

    I know decent people who happen to be Jews.

    But these trolls embody every negative stereotype of Jews that ever came down the pike.

    Parentheses added.

    FAKE, PHONY, COUNTERFEIT, IMPOSTER “Jews” in equally counterfeit (((Rothschild)))-“Israel”.

    Why counterfeit, fake, phony, IMPOSTER “Jews”? Read on to find out.

    Why do I call them FAKE, PHONY, COUNTERFEIT, IMPOSTER “Jews”, and what is the real meaning of ZION-ist? Read on:

    The so-called “Sephardi” “Jews” (10% of all “Jews” today) are of BERBER-ARAB descent. The remaining 90% of so-called “Jews” today (the “Ashkenazi”) are of SLAVO-TURKIC descent. This means, that they have NO LEGITIMATE CLAIM to being the direct lineal descendants of the original, true IBERI (Hebrews) of the Old Testament era! NONE. WHAT-SO-EVER. Read Paul Wexler’s work in _The Non-Jewish Origins of the Sephardic Jews_, and _The Ashkenazic Jews: A Slavo-Turkic People in Search of a Jewish Identity_. Also, read THE GREAT DECEPTION: SYRIA, BRITAIN AND THE ROMAN CONSPIRACY, by Comyns Beaumont, IF you wish to discover the TRUE geographic location of the people, places & events described in both the Old & New Testament.

    And, (((they))) ADMIT AS MUCH, in (((their))) own publications:

    Encyclopedia Judaica 1971, Vol 10:23: “Jews began to call themselves Hebrews and Israelites in 1860 [AD].”

    Page 3 of the 1980 Jewish Almanac states: “Strictly speaking it is incorrect to call an Ancient Israelite a Jew or to call a contemporary [modern] Jew an Israelite or a Hebrew.”

    (You see, what these BERBER-ARABS & SLAVO-TURKS did, was HIJACK the very much VENERATED name & identity of the TRUE, ORIGINAL IBERI, or IBRI (Hebrews) of the Old Testament era, on their way to HIJACKING the entirety of Western Civilization! When did they do it? 1860 AD.

    With regard to the meaning of ZION-ism, read these three extremely relevant quotes about “Jew”-ish SUPREMACISM (i.e., ZION-ism):

    1) “We Jews regard our race as superior to all humanity, and look forward, not to its ultimate union with other races, but to its triumph over them.” (Goldwin Smith, Jewish Professor of Modern History at Oxford University, October, 1981)

    2) “We Jews, we are the destroyers and will remain the destroyers. Nothing you can do will meet our demands and needs. We will forever destroy because we want a world of our own.” (You Gentiles, by Jewish Author Maurice Samuels, p. 155).

    3) “We will have a world government whether you like it or not. The only question is whether that government will be achieved by conquest or consent.” (Jewish Banker Paul Warburg, February 17, 1950, as he testified before the U.S. Senate).

    WHY, is all the foregoing SO VITAL for ALL AMERICANS to FULLY comprehend? Read on:

    Study the history of the so-called “Russian” “Revolution”. It was (((Rothschild)))-agents, (((Paul Warburg))), and (((Jacob Schiff))) who FINANCED fellow-tribesman (((Lev Bronstein))) alias (((Leon Trotsky))) to the tune of \$20 Million (USD) in gold, when (((Bronstein/Trotsky))) boarded a ship in New York Harbor!, bound for Russia, and the (((Rothschild)))-financed overthrow (really massacre) of the 300-year-old ORTHODOX CHRISTIAN Romanov Family Dynasty. It is historically significant, that the so-called “Russian” “Revolution” was a FAKE, PHONY, COUNTERFEIT, IMPOSTER “Jew”-ish operation, from beginning to end.

    And what was so remarkable about the Catholic church’s contribution to the defeat of Communism was that it was done without there being any supernatural being to help.

  150. @Ron Unz

    Ron, is there any chance someone could make a go of a competitor for YouTube, Facebook and any other censors?

    The legal problem of defamation law could presumably be dealt with by making sure that viewers couldn’t miss the message that the site moderator warns that there is a substantial chance that anything posted contains untrue material because the main content of the site is material banned from other sites but made available on BANNED so that viewers can make their own assessment of the impact censoring practices of private businesses my have on First Amendment rights.

    It would surely be possible to attract advertising revenue and changing the published list of those who had been invited to advertise and did advertise on Facebook etc. but declined to BANNED might be of interest to many. Maybe there would be scope for charging for subscriptions, especially for those who wanted notifications when something was posted that had been allegedly banned from X and referred to Y.

    Do you see problems?

  151. @Reality Check

    And after all that, they have the chutzpah to claim that they don’t collude or act in concert and that Judaism is not a group evolutionary strategy.
