Iran’s radical Marxist cult Mohajedeen e Khalq, better known by its acronym MEK, is somewhat reminiscent of the Israel Lobby’s American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) in that it operates somewhat in the shadows and is nevertheless able to punch well beyond its weight by manipulating politicians and understanding how American government functions on its dark side. MEK promotes itself by openly supporting a very popular hardline policy of “democratic opposition” advocating “regime change” for Iran while also successfully selling its reform credentials, i.e. that it is no longer a terrorist group. This latter effort apparently convinced then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on 2013 as she and President Barack responded to the group’s affability campaign by delisting MEK from the government list of terrorist organizations.

This shift in attitude towards MEK was a result of several factors. First, everyone in Washington and the Establishment hates Iran. And second, the Executive Order 13224, which designates Iran’s Revolutionary Guards as a terrorist organization, ipso facto defines any group fighting against it as one of the good guys, justifying the change

MEK is best described as a cult rather than as a political movement because of its internal discipline. Its members are, according to the testimony of those who have somehow escaped, subjected to considerable indoctrination best described as brainwashing. Though not exactly imprisoned, adherents are kept isolated and separated insofar as possible and cannot contact their families. Their possessions are collectivized so they have no money or other resources. If they are in contravention of the numerous rules that guide the organization they are punished, including physically, and there are reports of members being executed for trying to escape.

The current head of the group is Maryam Rajavi, the wife of the deceased co-founder of MEK, Massoud. She is reported to be politically savvy and speaks excellent English learned in part to enable her to communicate with adoring American politicians. The group itself was founded in 1965. Its name means “People’s Holy Warriors,” derived from its Marxist/populist roots and its religiosity. It was not unlike the Taliban which developed in adjacent Afghanistan. During the 1970’s it rebelled against the Shah and was involved in bombing and shooting American targets. It executed U.S. Army Lt. Col. Lewis Hawkins in 1973 as he was walking home from the U.S. Embassy and in 1975 it killed two American Air Force officers in their chauffer driven car, an incident that was studied and used in CIA training subsequently as an example of how not to get caught and killed by terrorists. Between 1976 and 1978 the group bombed American commercial targets and killed three Rockwell defense contractors and one Texaco executive.

MEK welcomed the Iranian revolution and also the occupation of the U.S. Embassy but soon fell afoul of the Ayatollah Khomeini regime. It eventually moved to join Iran’s enemy Saddam Hussein in Iraq and participated on the Iraqi side in the bloodletting that followed when the two countries went to war in 1980-8. For that reason alone, MEK is particularly hated by most Iranians and the repeated assertion that it is some kind of “Iranian democracy” alternative is ridiculous as the people in Iran would never accept it. In terms of the duplicity surrounding its marketing, it is reminiscent of Iraqi con artist Ahmed Chalabi, who also had little following inside Iraq but was able to convince Pentagon geniuses like Paul Wolfowitz that he represented some kind of democratic movement. At the time Chalabi was also secretly working for Iran.

MEK was protected by Saddam and later by the U.S. invaders who found a weapon to use against Iran useful. They were housed in Camp Ashraf near Baghdad, and later, after Ashraf was closed, at so-called Camp Liberty. In 2013, when the Iraqis insisted that they go elsewhere the President Barack Obama facilitated their removal to Albania under the auspices of the United Nations refugee program, with the \$20 million dollar bill being footed by Washington. The organization’s political arm, the National Council of Resistance or Iran (NCRI), meanwhile established itself in Paris under the control of Maryam Rajavi, in part to place it closer to the American and European sources of its political legitimacy and financing. In 2001, to make itself more palatable, the group had renounced violence.

The MEK folks in Albania have become a bit of a problem. Through various additional migrations they have multiplied and now number around 3,000 and have largely adhered to their cultish ways even though one of the original objectives of the move into Europe was to somehow deprogram and “deradicalize” them in an environment far removed from Iran-Iraq. Part of the problem is that the Albanian government likes the U.N. subsidies used to support the MEK associates, but it will not let them work as they have no legal status and they cannot resettle or lead normal lives. So they resort to criminal activity that includes promotion of fraudulent charities, drug trafficking and even a form of slavery in which their own people are sold and traded as laborers. The temporary solution has been to move the MEK out of a rundown university property in the capital Tirana to a more remote site in northern Albania dubbed Ashraf-3, but local people believe that that is just kicking the can down the road and that MEK should be forced to go somewhere else, preferably in the United States, which seems to like them so much.

Also, Albania is majority Muslim and has been subjected to the same Saudi Arabian ultra-conservative wahhabi promotion backed by lots of money that has plagued many states in the Middle East. Albanians accustomed to the mild form of Turkish Islam suddenly found themselves confronting the Sunni-Shia divide and also the MEK as agents of both Saudi Arabia and Israel. Many outraged Albanians see the unreformed MEK in their midst as a terror time bomb waiting to go off, but the government, under pressure from the U.S. Embassy has not sought their removal.

Meanwhile back in the United States everything involving the non-deradicalized MEK is just hunky dory. MEK and the NCRI are enemies of Iran and also seem to have plenty of money to spend, so they buy high ranking American speakers to appear at their events. Rudy Giuliani and John Bolton have appeared regularly, as have Senators John McCain, Lindsey Graham and Jeanne Shaheen. At a 2015 appearance in Paris, Giuliani brought the crowd to its feet by calling for “Regime change!” after shouting out that the “Ayatollah must go!” In August 2017, Senators Roy Blunt, John Cornyn, Thom Tillis and Carl Levin met with Rajavi in Paris. Newt Gingrich also considers himself a friend of the Iranian resistance while Elaine Chao, Secretary of Labor and wife of Senate Majority leader Mitch McConnell spoke in Paris for five minutes in 2015 and was paid \$50,000. The payments made to the other politicians have not been revealed.

And then there is the Saudi and Israeli angle. Saudi Arabia is now the major funder of MEK/NCRI. It’s intelligence chief Turki al-Faisal spoke before the group in 2017. Israel funded the group in its early days and its external spy service Mossad continues to use MEK stay-behinds in Iran to assassinate scientists and tamper with computer systems. The CIA, which recently expanded its anti-Iran task force, it also working closely with MEK. And Giuliani, Bolton, Chao are all in the White House inner circle, which, not coincidentally, is baying for Iranian blood.

Lost in all of the above is any conceivable American interest. It is difficult to even make the claim that Iran threatens the United States or any vital interest and the drive to decapitate the Mullahs, both literally and figuratively, really comes from Riyadh and Tel Aviv. And there is potential collateral damage where it really might matter as MEK cultists continues to sit and fester in a holding pattern maintained by Washington in the heart of Europe. What comes next? War of some kind with Iran is appearing to be increasingly likely given recent remarks by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, threating to crush the Iranians. Is Washington intending to send the MEK warriors on sabotage missions inside Iran, something like the resistance to the Germans in World War 2? Maybe Giuliani and Bolton know the answer to that question.

    No, Washington doesn’t have to….Israel has already been using the MEK for bombings and assassinations in Iran and of Iranians elsewhere also for years now. Its been common knowledge in the ME.
    Unless the pentagon gave the MEK some of their missing 21 trillion then its likely Israel is financing them.

    ‘Israeli Mossad Agents Posed as CIA Spies to Recruit Terrorists to Fight Against Iran’
    Foreign Policy magazine cites CIA memos from 2007-2008 that the Mossad recruited members of Jundallah terror group to fight against Tehran; U.S. was reportedly furious with Israel and moved to limit joint intelligence programs.

    Barak Ravid
    Jan 13, 2012


    Israeli Mossad agents posed as CIA officers in order to recruit members of a Pakistani terror group to carry out assassinations and attacks against the regime in Iran, Foreign Policy revealed on Friday, quoting U.S. intelligence memos.
    Foreign Policy’s Mark Perry reported that the Mossad operation was carried out in 2007-2008, behind the back of the U.S. government, and infuriated then U.S. President George W. Bush.
    Perry quotes a number of American intelligence officials and claims that the Mossad agents used American dollars and U.S. passports to pose as CIA spies to try to recruit members of Jundallah, a Pakistan-based Sunni extremist organization that has carried out a series of attacks in Iran and assassinations of government officials.
    According to the report, Israel’s recruitment attempts took place mostly in London, right under the nose of U.S. intelligence officials.
    “It’s amazing what the Israelis thought they could get away with,” Foreign Policy quoted an intelligence officer as saying. “Their recruitment activities were nearly in the open. They apparently didn’t give a damn what we thought.”
    According to a currently serving U.S. intelligence officer, Perry reports, when Bush was briefed on the information he “went absolutely ballistic.”
    “The report sparked White House concerns that Israel’s program was putting Americans at risk,” the intelligence officer told Perry. “There’s no question that the U.S. has cooperated with Israel in intelligence-gathering operations against the Iranians, but this was different. No matter what anyone thinks, we’re not in the business of assassinating Iranian officials or killing Iranian civilians.”
    The intelligence officer said that the Bush administration continued to deal with the affair until the end of his term. He noted that Israel’s operation jeopardized the U.S. administration’s fragile relationship with Pakistan, which was under immense pressure from Iran to crack down on Jundallah.
    According to the intelligence officer, a senior administration official vowed to “take the gloves off” with Israel, but ultimately the U.S. did nothing.
    “In the end it was just easier to do nothing than to, you know, rock the boat,” the intelligence officer said.
    Apparently, the Mossad operation caused a fiery debate among Bush’s national security team and it was only resolved when U.S. President Barack Obama drastically scaled back joint U.S.-Israel intelligence programs targeting Iran, Perry quotes several serving and retired officers as saying.
    The U.S. State Department has vehemently denied any ties to Jundallah and many U.S. intelligence officials remained angry with Israel over the 2007-2008 operation.
    “Israel is supposed to be working with us, not against us,” Foreign Policy quoted an intelligence officer as saying. “If they want to shed blood, it would help a lot if it was their blood and not ours. You know, they’re supposed to be a strategic asset. Well, guess what? There are a lot of people now, important people, who just don’t think that’s true.”
    The CIA, the White House, and the Mossad failed to respond to the Foreign Policy report by the time it went to press

    ForeignPolicy….The Mossad “do false flag ops posing as everything you can imagine,”

    ”Former CIA officers express skepticism that Mossad would have had many reservations about using or implying American cover to conduct operations.
    The Mossad “do false flag ops posing as everything you can imagine,” a former senior CIA officer who has worked extensively on the region told Yahoo News Friday on condition of anonymity, adding that he found the “false flag” report “very” credible. “They have even recruited Arabs in the U.S. posing as [Central Intelligence] Agency and carrying fabricated credentials.”
    Several close European allies of Israel openly accused it in 2010 of breaching international diplomatic conventions and their friendship, by forging their nations’ passports for alleged use by a Mossad assassination team.
    After Hamas operative Mahmoud al-Mabhouh was found dead in his Dubai hotel room on January 23, 2010, furious Dubai authorities painstakingly reconstructed the alleged assassination plot, publicly releasing photos, close circuit television footage and numerous details about the cover identities, passports, credit cards and travel itineraries of the alleged assassination team. Israel’s European allies were furious when confronted with the evidence–published in newspapers around the globe—that their citizens’ identities and passports had been stolen to infiltrate the alleged Israeli assassination team into Dubai.
    The United Kingdom in March 2010 expelled a Mossad official posted to the Israeli embassy in London after a British investigation found evidence that Israel had forged British passports for use in the hit job that killed Hamas operative Mahmoud al-Mabhouh in a Dubai hotel room.

    Poland in June 2010 arrested another alleged Mossad officer accused by Germany of forging a German passport that was used in the Dubai hit job.

    “I want to categorically deny any United States involvement in any kind of act of violence inside Iran,” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton told journalists at the State Department Wednesday.
    Iran didn’t seem convinced by the American denials–however unusually adamant and categorical they may have sounded to American observers’ ears.

    “”On Saturday, Iran’s Foreign Ministry handed a letter to the Swiss ambassador in Tehran to deliver to Washington, that reportedly described “evidence” Iran had obtained showing the CIA along with British intelligence had guided the assassination.
    “”””according to a report by Reuters’ Parisa Hafezi.” data-reactid=”44″”We have reliable documents and evidence that this terrorist act was planned, guided and supported by the CIA,” the Iran Foreign Ministry said in the letter, Iran state TV reported, according to a report by Reuters’ Parisa Hafezi.

    “Mossad continues to use MEK stay-behinds in Iran to assassinate scientists and tamper with computer systems.” Indeed. So much for MEK renouncing violence.

    “MEK cultists continues to sit and fester….. in the heart of Europe.” Here in US as well. They were leafleting at events in DC in 2013, the moment they were off the terror list.

    First, everyone in Washington and the Establishment hates Iran.

    Hmm, wonder who is responsible for making that happen? I’ll have to ‘cough, cough’ think about that.

    The same ones who keep tricking the USA into fighting their wars for expansion and ME domination and those who protest are branded as neo-Nazi, anti-Semites who foolishly put their nation’s wants and needs ahead of a regional bully are the ones who made the DC mob hate Iran.

    I’m sorry to say that one of my slippery senators, Roy Blunt, is in this photo. Blunt is a tried and true friend of Israel and a good buddy of that money spigot, Sheldon Adelson, who buys politicians as a hobby.
    Trying to get a straight answer out of Blunt is impossible, as the man has been lurking in the DC Swamp long enough to know the murkiest parts to hide in.

  10. War of some kind with Iran is appearing to be increasingly likely given recent remarks by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, threating to crush the Iranians.

    War against Iran has been waged by cultish goons in DC and TA for decades; it’s not something that is increasingly likely.

    This article is otherwise excellent and its emphasis on the cultish nature of groups with aspirations of power and it’s my hope that more folks will understand that concept vis a vis what runs this utterly bankrupt third world strip mall republic.

    IOW, as most UR readers understand, the MEK are only one of the cults we peasants have to be concerned with.

  11. Probably Iran has to be painted as another dramatic enemy because the ruling cultists need distractions from issues like this.:

  13. I have always argued that parts of the MEK or all of the MEK was motivated by the remnants of the Shah’s family and/or network. This information contradicts that dynamic.

    I am missing the internal mechanics here. If the MEK aided in the ouster of the Shah, there needs to be some explication as to how they ended on the outside of the current power dynamic so much as to be advocating for the revolution or regime change they are.

    Although there’s no possibility of them having any mass popularity within Iran and thus being pretenders to the throne they’re useful as spies and terrorists. Being Iranian they can move around within the country where an outsider couldn’t without being noted. Whatever claims to legitimacy they may have had from the time of the overthrow of the Shah has been long gone due to their collaboration with countries hostile to Iran, first Iraq’s Hussein and now the US. They’ve simply been a tool of Iran’s enemies for many years now. At the lower level their covert actions are risky for those carrying them out and they are expendable cannon fodder, basically just dupes. The leadership offers their services to whoever will pay them, currently the US. American politicians are for sale so the list of names showing up to publicly support them and then cash their checks looks to be the usual bunch of tough-talkers. Since MEK are seen by most Iranians as traitors it also shows how weak the American hand really is and how straws are being grasped at. Economic sanctions, political pressure, constant military threats, subversion and terrorism have all been used but the Iranian government hasn’t budges. MEK can’t really do anything but it demonstrates the cynical nature of all the involved parties.

    THE MEK HAS NO SUPPORT in Iran. This terrorist organization like Al Qaeda, traitor KURDS, ISIS, to mention few, are supported by the main terrorist countries, US-Israel-MI6, and their petty colonies, the western intelligence services funded by terrorists Arab head of states in the region like Saudi Arabia, microscopic entity like Emirate.

    Maryam Rajavi who run the terrorist organization MEK now, was married to another pimp by the name of Abrishamchi, where she secretly forced herself into Masoud Rajavi’s bedroom to become his mistress and soon after his wife where Masoud ordered Her husband to divorce her so they get married to make DEMOCRATIC REVOLUTION IN IRAN, a laughing stock indeed, for many years following this sexual affair between traitors. Their ‘democratic union’ did not last long, however, and soon Maryam became his pimp to force other women in the camp, in Iraq, to be prepared to SLEEP WITH MASOUD, the ‘rahbar’ to keep him active. This sexual criminality was exposed two years ago when few women from the camp were able to escape. US officials were aware of this criminalilty but they were so desperate to keep it hidden. Are the Jewish mafia and their dumb servants have ever told YOU? Of course no, because many of them are rapists themselves including the traitors at the black house.

    So, that’s why you see this traitor, Maryam, goes from one impotent man to the another begging for supports. Only terrorists and impotent ‘men’ have given support to receive his/her \$\$\$\$\$\$\$ funded by the Saudis.

    Criminals at work in Camp Liberty
    Massoud and Maryam Rajavi accused of sexual cruelty

    Now, there was an attempted assassination on MBS’ life more than a MONTH ago where he was wounded and had to stay in bed since. That was the reason BEHIND HIS DISAPPEARNCE OVER A MONTH, WHERE PUMPEO HAD TO TRAVEL UNEXPECTEDLY TO SAUDI ARABIA MAKE SURE HE IS ALIVE OR DEAD.

    The MEK HAS NO SUPPORT among Iranians. The MEK sympathizers are very small in Iran and abroad, and are CONSIDERED TRAITORS by majority of Iranian people, thus, whoever is supporting these traitors and terrorists, politically or economically, are look at as enemies of the Iranian people.

    Trump, is so illiterate and ignorant that aligning himself with Jewish Mafia and then reads their messages written by a members of Jewish mafia, like Miller, to Iranians expecting Iranian people follow his stupid messages.

    Iranians are laughing SO HARD at him, who on the one hand attacking Iranian government and telling Iranian people that he is their ‘savior’, and on the other hand, he is in bed with the Jewish Mafia , the enemy of Iranian people and the humanity at once. How dumb one can get and still expect result.

    Hi Ronald Thomas West,

    Referenced above, the “October Surprise,” I assume you refer to Ronald Reagan’s running mate, George H.W. Bush’s (clandestine) meeting with Iranian officials prior to the election where President Jimmy Carter was narrowly defeated by voila, DECEPTION. Eh?

    Oh man… that shit has to be the Mother of All examples of ZUS presidential election “rigging” since the satanic Dealey Plaza coup, Elm Street, Dallas.

    (Zigh). A tad exasperated, I have yet to learn how & why the CIA / Mossad ever allowed information on the treasonous H.W. Bush meeting in Paris go (to some extent) PUBLIC. (Zigh)Unless of course they wanted it that way — unaccountably rub shit in dumb goyim-voter faces.

    Unless it’s mentioned in his memoir, I do not know anything about Jimmy Carter having issued a complaint / expose of the crime! He must be dedicated to Christian “forgiveness because at all special presidential gatherings, Jimmy Carter & G.H.W. Bush mugs appear smiling together in MSM pictures.

    So I have a question for you, Mr. West.

    At the time, did the GOP, Jewish Lobbies, and major billionaire donors simply not give a damn about rigging a mere ZUSA election?

    Subsequently, who leaked the Paris meeting’s information & to whom?

    Will appreciate your (anyone!) making reply, comment response. Thanks. R.T.W.!!!

    Pompeo is a surly bastard with a grandiose imperial military attitude.

    His attitude is 100% the opposite of our forefathers – Washington and the others counseled against getting involved in foreign intrigues.

    Pompeo acts as if he is the world’s cop. He plans to blow up Iran – just as Netanyahu wants, and the PNAC prescribes.

    He wants to starve the country until it blows up and the people of Iran start killing each other. He wants to send in CIA and Mossad thugs to start the killing process. Then he wants to install a pro-Israel military strong man like Egypt has.

    He threatens every other country in the world, if they do not go along with his plans.

    Pompeo has many equally misguided, foolish, imprudent cohorts in this administration. Gina Haspel, Nikki Haley, Mike Pence, Mad Dog Mattis, and John Bolton. They are all maliciously arrogant, and willing to shed American blood for the express benefit of Israel. None of them exemplify the spirit of our American founders.

    Rogue Israeli intelligence officer Ari Ben Menashe blew the whistle (eye witness to GHWB present at Paris), another source was the SR-71 Blackbird pilot who flew Bush to Paris somehow got crossed up with his ‘seniors’ and gave up the fact he’d provided the transport. That 2nd is off the top of my head.

    The recently deceased Robert Parry was covering Iran-Contra and had written about Ben Menashe for Newsweek and Ben Menashe is likely how he was put onto the ‘October Surprise’ story but I’ve since come to the conclusion Parry was a limited hangout. In any case when Ben Menashe published his memoir naming GHWB and Robert Gates as October Surprise principals, Newsweek immediately turned on him, he was no longer a credible witness according to mainstream-

Secondly, the MEK is a blend of secular Marxism and Shiite religion, much to the detriment and distortion of the latter. The Taleban, at least originally, were students (“taleb” is the Arabic word for a student of religious sciences) who studied in Pakistan during the time of the Russian occupation in madrasas, or religious schools, funded by the Saudis. In other words, they are students and advocates of Wahhabi, or puritanical Sunni, Islam. Thirdly, the rules and punishments imposed on the followers of the MEK are not those advocated even by the Shiite brand of law school, or Sharia. The Taleban are imposers of strictly interpreted Wahhabi Sharia. Finally, the Taleban are essentially an Afghan nationalist movement fighting foreign occupation as Afghanestan has been know to do historically, The MEK are betrayers of their country and, as such, must find foreign patrons.

    This is a fascinating article. I’m wondering if MEK is more than a 1965 communist leaning organization.

    To survive so long and be so powerful under the Restrictive Persian government I wonder if their base is some ancient religious ethnic guild regional mafia type clan.

    Dumbest thing the shah ever did was use the oil money to build high schools and colleges and send students abroad. Just like in America in the 50s 60s 7os, and Russia in the late 19 th century ; the liberal teachers preached revolution, whether communist or religious.

    If MEK is a Mossad front, I doubt they created MEK. Mossad probably found some already existing clan. They did that a lot during the Zionist take over of Palestine; trying to recruit existing groups like Druse, Christians, whatever.

    For instance in America the Old Testament evangelicals existed for 400 years. Israel didn’t have to create them. Israel just took them over.

    I was thinking just the same thing. What I’ve understood with my little knowledge about the Iranians is that the majority of them are neolibrals who don’t want religion to govern their lives. Their values are western oriented. If any regime installs Capitalism/Sexism, you wouldn’t see the resistance you would expect to see from a conservative muslim society. West knows this and this is why they believe that the regime change in the favor of western values will be successful in Iran. The Iranian version of Islamic ideology (Shiite) was hijacked from the days of Ummayd. Shiite’s, unlike their sunni counterparts don’t need to act in a rightous way as determined by the koran. They like the Christians, believe that they have a direct pass to paradise regardless of their deeds, so there’s no obligation to the religion or it’s constitution which current regime upholds. I’ve always assumed that these MEK’s are just the more extreme version of that Iranian fraction.

    I remain as ever a tad suspicious of Iran and their ambitions — I don’t think for a minute the Islamic revolution is over.

    However, I Iran is not a threat to the US nor Israel for that matter and as she has been keeping her end of the deal — it appears the one’s in default is the US.

    Given the our invasions and by the admissions of Dr. Giraldi and others, I don’t think we can be sure who is at play with the MEK. I have no doubt that there are multiple parties interested in ruling iran or whatever state they can get their hands on.

    I have to take no view of n whether they are communists — I have no supporting data on that.

    i have to shift my views here. but on the data — the MEK is likely to lead a strict islamic state, based on their academic history and disagreements with the clerics and the Ayatollah. However, I think that is best done via the political process.

    I do appreciate their vow of celibacy — that’s a huge plus — but not a basis for an entire polity of governance.

    The MEK neither is Islamic NOR Marxist. Everyone knows these two terms don’t go together.
    MEK is a terrorist organization in the service of imperialism and Zionism to kill people. These traitors were used by Israel to assassinate Iranian scientists.
    MEK has NO SUPPORT among Iranian people, only is used by the Iranian fifth column abroad including Payam Akhavan, a CIA asset and its extension. Akhavan is the founder of ‘Iran document’ in New Heaven funded by the CIA to make FAKE documents against Iranian government. Akhavan left Iran at the age of 8, but in the petition he signs for the empire to bomb Libya or Syria, he pose as ‘Iranian’ not Canadian. He has received the title og ’young world leaderd’ hoax for his services for imperialism/Zionism.

    The MEK is a terror entity responsible for thousands of civilian death in post revolution Iran.

    [my applause ladies]

    Which ‘ladies’ are you talking about. Are you talking about ‘Maryam Rajavi’ a traitor in bed with mass murderes, in the west and Saudi Arabia for \$\$\$ to kill Iranian people? Who except the axis of evil US-Israel-Saudis is benefiting?

    Masoud Rajavi not only fled to Iraq and embraced Saddam and killed Iranian people along Saddam, but also he was a sexual abuser of women in the camp. I use ‘was’, because widely is believed that HE IS DEAD. Mayam, an imposter, was married to Masoud’s fried before ending in bed with Masoud, but she divorced him on Masoud’s order to be united with a traitor and terrorist Masoud, a ‘leader’.
    This terrorist couple told dummies since they are bringing “democratic revolution” to Iran, thus they have to be united in bed, however, he asked other men not to do it, except himself. Soon after the union, he was asking other women in the camp to follow Maryam foot step to satisfy his sexual DESIRE. Maryam had to prepare women for the night.

    [Therefore, Rajavi called for a compulsory divorce according to which all MEK members had to get divorce. But that was not the end of the story. While he forbade his men from having sexual relations with their wives, he decided to take their place. As a result, he turned Camp Ashraf into a big harem where he could have his female comrades in arms night and day. Risking their lives, however, some of the sexual victims managed to escape from the camp to show the true colors of Rajavi, once their spiritual leader and now the most lecherous man in the world they know.]

    Many women tried to escape, but were not able to. The whole situation exposed a few years ago.

    Batoul Soltani:
    I’m Batoul Soltani, a resident of Germany. I was born in Isfahan. I’ve been living in Germany for more than four years. Before that, I was in the MEK for 20 years and before that I was in Iran for 20 years.
    We were pursuing more ambitious goals and looking for a better tomorrow thinking that they – according to their slogans – would bring people more democracy or a brighter future. Looking for such ideals, we fell for their slogans and joined their organization. We had passed the point of no return.
    What I saw in this organization was that women were merely tools in every level I witnessed. After all, 20 years is not a short period of time. And what we witnessed from the beginning – though my marriage conformed to social norms and was not an organizational marriage – I encountered women who were devoid of emotional involvement with their husbands but the organization had made them marry. For the first time, I saw compulsory marriages in the organization. It’s very difficult to love someone by force. I think that it’s very difficult for a woman to do so.

    In Islamic practice, there are three sources used to derive sharia, or Islamic law: the Quran, the sunna (or practice) of the Prophet and ijtihad, the individual reasoning of the jurisprudent (or intellectual striving–word derives from same Arabic root as “jihad”.) In the Sunni world, there are four recognized schools of Islamic law: Hanifi, Shafi’i, Maliki, and Hanbali. Of these, the Hanifi school is the most liberal and is practiced in modern Egypt, while the Hanbali is the strictist and gave rise to Wahhabism. During the reign of the Buyids (945-1045), a Persian Shiite ruling family in Baghdad, a specifically Shiite branch of law was derived which came to be regarded as the “fifth” branch of Islamic law. In this branch of law, the customs and sayings of Ali, the son-in-law of the Prophet and his descendants were also considered as legitimate sources of law. Another major difference between Sunni and Shiite Sharia is that for the Sunnis, the Gate of Ijtihad (or reasoning) was closed sometime in the thirteenth century, while the Shiites continued to practice ijtihad up until the present. This gave Shiite law a greater ability to deal with changes in the world.

    Gearóid Ó Colmáin participated in the New Horizons conference in Iran and also signed the 9/11 letter.

    Iranian author and scholar of Islam Blake Archer Williams, whose essay on Sacred Communities was featured on The Saker’s blog, sent along Ó Colmáin’s essay on his thoughts on the Conference:

    [nb. Ó Colmáin is a tad too Irish/Roman Catholic by my lights, and I must admit I clipped the paragraphs comparing NSDAP to zionism: hey, it’s my comment box.]


    The Occupation: Reflections on a recent trip to Iran.

    Excessive emotional focus on the brutality the Israeli Defense Forces in Palestine, while justified, nevertheless serves to mask the deeper forces driving the world to war: Jewish eschatology, anti-Gentilism, and the Israeli occupation of the Western mind. It is time to break the taboo.

    I visited Iran last week for the Sixth International New Horizons Conference in the religious city of Mashad. The New Horizons conference is organised by an Iranian NGO and invites writers and intellectuals from all over the world to debate and discuss problems in international relations. This year’s conference focused on the recent US embassy move to Jerusalem.

    I wrote a paper for the conference book entitled ‘The Noahide Laws: Bedrock for a Planetary State called Israel’ arguing that many Jewish rabbis and influential oligarchs wish to see Jerusalem as the capital of a world government which would have one set of laws for Jews and another for gentiles. I described how the legal mechanisms of Jewish-dominated global governance are already being implemented at UN level, unbeknownst to most of the world’s population. Globalisation is as much a matter of a certain religious fanaticism as it is of monopoly capitalism – a fact dialectical materialists cannot and will not ever comprehend.

    This was my fourth trip to Iran, the third on an official basis. Mashad is home to the tomb of the Eight Shiia Imam. The city never sleeps with pilgrims arriving all the time from all over the world. I visited Mashad university with former US Psychological Operations Counterterrorism analyst Scott Bennett where I delivered a lecture on the history of European anti-Semitism.

    I argued that European anti-Semitism was principally due to the cruel behaviour of Jewish financiers who repeatedly and relentlessly got princes and paupers into debt through the illicit practice of usury. One simply needs to read the extensive literature on the topic written by Jews such as Bernard Lazard,Heinrich Graetz, Werner Sombart, Cecil Roth or Gershom Sholem to understand why gentiles distrusted and despised Jews. Since Christ cleared the money-lenders from the temple, Roman Catholic teaching has proclaimed usury to be a mortal sin equivalent to murder.

    Jews are encouraged by the Talmud to lend to the gentile at interest: it is the fundamental difference between the Jew and the Christian, a fact understood by all Europe’s great philosophers from Augustine to Aquinas and from Nietzsche to Marx, but lacking among the craven clique of contemporary philosophasters.

    In most cases, those who denounce anti-Semitism have never read any of the relevant literature.

    Multipolar chaos or Christian world order

    There were important disagreements at this conference. Russian philosopher Alexander Dugin contended that a multipolar world of traditional civilisations would resolve many of the problems of the current world disorder. But Catholic intellectual E. Micheal Jones, Tehran-based Islamologist Blake Archer Williams and this writer argued that the natural tendency of the world is towards unification.

    To be sure, national democratic revolutions propelled by populism can open avenues of resistance to globalisation but only on an extremely limited scale. For example, Trump’s presidency has allowed debate on the origins of climate change to flourish. Now, thousands of important dissenting voices in the scientific community can finally be heard and the project for one-world government – the driving force behind climate pseudo-science is weakened.

    Nonetheless, I believe we will have a global super-state in time whether we like it or not. Multipolarity has not brought global peace, nor did the multipolar order of 1913 prevent the first world war.

    There is no post revolutionary iran. the islamic desire to evangelize the planet is not singularly momentary and over.

    And it is accurate that during the revolution a lot of blood was spilled by several different entities.

    Clearly, I am applauding celibacy and those ladies who so practice. Prudence in military action, need not dismiss qualities of virtue — i am unclear what it is that has you so twisting in the wind and misplacing my comments to read out of their specific and intended meaning. The constant misappropriation of another’s arguments has really become a skill by so many of you. it’s a rather strange practice.

    But to your commentary.

    That’s all very interesting, but it’s bearing on my comments is nil.

    It is my understanding that the MEK desires to govern iran. Their intentions is to provide greater autonomy from the religious right, ideas born out of their academic leanings. I have no data to support that they are Marxists or communists. I am not an advocate of inciting revolutions as a general practice. But if the MEK is willing to take that risk – that is their business. Here’s to a more peaceable route, but those are choices made by those seeking leadership.

    Our founders were certainly viewed as terrorists no doubt.

    One need not search among the women of the mek to find women devoid of emotional attachment. The list of detached narcissistic women are plenty here on our shores. They are murdering their children in the womb and bragging about it – to the near beat of of 1 million a year. . They are flaunting all manner of behaviors with each other men, and other asundary beasts. They too want power, money, position and leadership – save they are not so willing to pay that price and more inclined that men do the heavy lifting for them —

    So while i may not subscribe to their violent desire for revolution — i am willing to give them a nod, for bravery. give me a woman willing to fight for me

    It’s a very important distinction, and Orwell wrote about it and I believe the Zionist chieftan, Max Nordau did as well.

Muslims have long memories, it seems. Maybe that’s more about the people of this region —

    I am saying, it’s none of my business. For the most part. The Iranians I have known are fairly genial and I have had good to better than good relations with them.

    1. Since the killing of JFK, I see elite US Zionist Jews as having great influence upon presidential elections.

    2. As the Iranian hostage crisis dragged on, with great MSM & subsequent public pressure upon President Jimmy Carter to do something, he tried with futility what became known as “The Debacle in the Desert.”
    (For me, I have some admiration for PreZIdent Carter for his restraint & not launching an awful bombing attack upon Teheran and gain VOTES)


    3. I intuit Carter was too genuinely committed to the rather practical Camp David Peace agreement and the long-range Israeli “Greater Israel” plan required America to have the tough conservative (?) talking Ronald Reagan as president.

    4. With the Carter administration history, the Zio-Republicans were in a great position to allow the survival of the Islamic Republic of Iran, and such temporary distortion came with the huge Zionist “bonus” of having a nine (9) year savage war between Iraq and Iran. Of course, ZUS helped each side!


    I have an inexplicable sense that Ben Menashe’s experienced-recording of what he knew was taboo for general dumb goyim knowledge, but having all of it appear availably in print did not ruffle anyone in Tel Aviv, London, & D.C.

    The long and short of it is that private citizen George H.W. Bush was not alone when he visited Teheran in 1978, but rather was accompanied by two additional private citizens, one each from the United States and Great Britain: Ronald Wilson Reagan, and Margaret Hilda Thatcher, neither of whom held any official governmental position at the time, nor did Bush himself, after being replaced (fired) as DCI in 1977 by President James “Jimmy” Earl Carter Jr. Additionally Carter subsequently fired 700 CIA covert operatives, an operation that may not have gone over well with the “cowboys” at CIA.

    Mansoor produced a confidential document called the “Country Team Minutes” of April 26, 1978, more than a year before the hostage crisis. The meeting was held in Iran. The second paragraph of the routine minutes, states,

    “The Ambassador commented on our distinguished visitors, Ronald Reagan, George Bush and Margaret Thatcher, and commented that Teheran seems to be the site for an opposition parties congress.”

    I don’t know about the U.K., but in the United States, the Logan Act prohibits private citizens from negotiating with a foreign government, or meddling in foreign affairs.

    Certainly, everyone should know by now that U.S. laws apply only to the common folk, and not to the elite, untouchable oligarchs who rule us, nor to their dimwitted front men. If the kingpins want to fix an election, by George, that’s what they’re going to do.

At the time my piece had been written (2013) only 250 MeK rank and file had been evacuated from Iraq to Albania. That larger rank and file have been hostage to the USA and Israel but most of all hostage to the narcissism of its leadership.

    You are of course kidding. every muslim desires for all to come to the truth — it’s a tenet of faith. The question for such practice is whether said desires will be by force or buy the consent of the offered. If you know a muslim who does desire that you the truth and come to it by way Islam as the best means — you have not met a muslim.

    I have no idea what you are talking about. I always applaud celibacy — and I always support it. Kids in Texas — I have no clue what you are on about. If you are talking about the incels(?) I think my position is very clear. Based on their self definition: not a fan of wikipedia but:

    While it is a form of celibacy — it does represent the understanding of celibacy.

    1. by choice or
    2. lacking the ability by biology or rarer still —
    3. no desire at all

    It is not merely the inability because one can’t find a partner. The incels are making a claim that they would have relations if they could find someone to have them with. But from a scriptural perspective that is an incomplete understanding or misrepresentation. the celibate person chooses so because they are not married and will not so engage until they get married regardless of the opportunities that may come their way in the mean time. Circumstance and happenstance are not the same.

    I think i used the example of the thief. Suppose a thief who wanted to steal but simply could not find any available targets. He comes to you and says, i am not longer a thief because i couldn’t find anyone to steal from, when I checked all the doors were locked. It may be great that locked doors prevent one from stealing — but that doesn’t make one no longer a thief.

    Now if that is the issue, then i stand where i came in. However, I suspect that the other matter is my tone, which had more to to do with the article itself than the incel admonitions. On that I would agree that i could have been less stringent in my comments and more respectful that people are celibate for a variety of reasons and such celibacy, even if not withing the frame I observe should be honored. I would agree that I could have been more accommodating/understanding.

    My hand is the same as it always has been — very traditional views on male female relations

    As for dishonest speech — you’ll have to be specific. I may err on some data – but being untruthful — not my practice.

    I gave know and have good relationships with muslims, I have never known a one who didn’t invite to become a muslim and leave my nice, but mistaken beliefs in christianity. I have had wonderful conversations and learned a good deal. I have several Qu’rans given me as gifts, I think it was understood that such a gift is an honor and so I am.

    But I am also a tad concerned. everyone of these delightful people have made a point to correct me numerous times concerning how to reference the prophet/teacher mohammed. The persistent correction to call him the “honorable”. this is a very peculiar insistence and one i am not inclined to embrace, anymore than i embrace any suggestion that we create laws that make criticizing another’s faith illegal or laws that offending jews by challenging the holocaust or criticizing israel should be outlawed.

    The case that you made for the chastity of the Iranian women based on their religion is entirely baseless.

  61. @Hessler

    First let’s stay on topic

    my comments were directed toward the women recruits in the MEK. now the reason I made that comment is because i watched a documentary about the women recruits in the MEK and that was a requirement.


    while celibacy is not a required practice amon Muslims, and i have had these conversations — it is encouraged.


    at no time did i argue that celibacy was a fundamental requirement or practice among muslims. Because they don’t jesus in the same way — the concept of fidelity or chastity before marriage would for many to be ‘unreasoned restraint’, my term, not one derived from any muslim.


    it would be an error to claim that i made a case for islamic celibacy —- i did not. i do not. i never have.

    Thank you for your comment, Tahla. Your vote of confidence on the Colonel’s primer in my view makes it even more compelling, considering that English language background on Islam is so terribly twisted, mainly due to political agendas of the usual suspects. One reason I shared this primer is the fact that I was so often amazed when reading it by information that was completely new to me, an expat American, ex-Catholic (my folks say you never can really shake it, and I still embrace it gently on my own terms) searcher for truth. From the very start we receive information that was never presented through usual channels of information; it’s almost as if Islam, its roots and basic teachings have been deliberately withheld or manipulated in order to prevent people from seeing it as a religion worthy of serious consideration, and indeed, an extension and end point of the Abrahamic faiths.

    Surprising to me:
    1) the angel Gabriel facilitated Muhammad’s reception of maxims, the Quran
    2) the way the Colonel describes the Muslim view of Christians and the New Testament (Christians misunderstood the New Testament, distorting it in a way to make them believe that Jesus was one element of a triune God. (I have my views on this, but I will not share them now, as it’s not my goal.))
    3) the idea of the “Aryan heresy”. Some Christian church fathers didn’t view Islam as a new religion, rather a Christian heresy.
    4) the significant influence of the intellectual cultures of the Hellenistic world and Zoroastrian Persia. This makes perfect sense, as these much older, more established cultures had great intellectual and mystical traditions, and it’s natural that they would influence the faith as it was established in their lands.

    These are a few points that I found illuminating from just the first two pages of the primer. I heartily recommend it to English speakers who want a better understanding of Islam. I’m also interested in the 10 -15% that you, Tahla, might find inaccurate or questionable, but I realize that you’re busy with something and not replying. In time, my friend.

    No. none of the suggestions you make are geemnaine to what I am responding to.

    In made an offside comment about the women in MEK’s commitment to celibacy — that’s it. i applauded such practice.

    In response a comment was made that my applause included support for women engaged in divorce, murder and adultery. My comment of “praise” for that practice was taken deliberately out context and frame to attack the MEK as though my acknowledgement was carte blanche for everything the MEK — entirely false.

    Then a comment was made that islam has no foundation requirement for celibacy. Again, that was not a position I made. I corrected that position. I added some commentaries by muslims about their faith and celibacy (Islamic celibacy)

  68. @anonymous

    i missed these comments, excuse the delay.

    Now you might have wanted to ask me a question about what I meant —–

    — the islamic revolution is not a singular event, it is a movement, a process and that process did not cease when the the power was shifted or seized by the clerics.

    i have no definitive answer point of view whether Pres Hussein’s efforts to rebut said spread of the revolution was effective or not. He thought so. he thought enough of it to expect Kuwait to chip in for the price. As far as i am concerned, that is a dispute between the parties involved.

    Let’s be clear, I opposed any move against iraq. i opposed an invasion of Afghanistan as unnecessary to the task and strategically untenable. So I have not a clue what you are on about concerning zionism — as i have stated my view on the matter regularly and consistently. I am not a fan of iran. But I have not found any cause to invade them, though I am not as convinced as many other of their regional benevolence. Again, that is largely a issue for those in the region ro resolve and have stated as much.

    Dumb though they may be — I don’t have any supporting data to make that conclusion. It’s a leap to infer that “high context” cultures are by definition marxists, i prefer to be more circumspect. As in my habit, I am careful to name call merely as pejorative. But your accusation is without merit. I have made no encouraging remarks for regime change.

    I am unclear why you use the term you — the only entities that would be anyway connected to me — would be those of the US and i paid a heavy price for opposing invasion in the region — more than you will ever know, perhaps even larger than i will know. But I would oppose it nonetheless — unwise.

    It is my understanding that the MEK are iranians. And it is also clear that during the revolution they were integral in advancing change. it was the student population that did a lot of the heavy lifting. It is my understanding that in the struggle for governance the youth and the educational elite lost out to the clerics. Over time the clerics, and the academics eventually had a falling out and the those most disgruntled were – are now referred to as the MEK. Their goal as i understand is to gain power because they believe their leadership is better suited for a prosperous and liberty encouraging environment. Again, that is their business. I have stated my position on any further regime change escapades. I am going to eschew responding to the unsupported accusations, save to say they are false to a one. But we do agree that this matter is iranian business.

    We also agree that sovereignty matters. And that sovereignty should be respected. I am more concerned about the sovereignty of the US than anyone else’s at the moment, unless they are a “clear and present danger” (i think i just dated myself) to the US or our allies. I do not consider Iran such a threat.

    As for the comments by Sen Flake. i have only this to say, i am more interested in the rule of law here in the US and that as applied to our borders that allows foreigners to undermine US citizens, and i care not a twiddle about the color of their skin, how compliant and hard working they are.

    i don’t think you have any idea who feminists are or who Sec Clinton is. Celibacy is no more their cup of tea than it is for Pres Trump or the president prior. Nothing in my comments supports rape in any manner. you are just off to the races. Not a single comment i made supports any criminal activity in any way. Abu grahib will be a blight on the system of US system of military justice for a very long time. i suspect that these are the tactic developed by the lead intel officer at Guantonomo which reflected the practices of Israeli interrogation techniques — tragic in every way. i am sure the men and women who were actually responsible escaped review.


    Look you took a simple comment and went of the rails in applying it in very unsavory content — clearly for which it was not intended.

    when responded to those misapplications — you seem yo have doubled down on your suspicions — incorrect on multiple levels. You have, in my view mistaken my detachment for something else.

    Hi Robin (and Frankie),

    Do you think most Muslims are aware of the distinctions that Lang outlined?

    Probably not – most Muslims just follow the Islam of their region, the more religiously educated know these distinctions.

    don’t identify with any sect

    There is a major difference between a sect and a school of thought or a school of juristic interpretation. The major sects are Sunni (whether Salafis and Wahhabis are Sunnis is also up for debate), Shiah, Zaydi, Ibadi. Religion is messy sometimes.

    10-15% disagreement

    I’ll mention a few examples:
    1) He mentions that the Mu’tazilites were driven out with “much bloodshed and suffering”, when it was the Mutazilites that inspired the “inquisition” upon the orthodox scholars – many were tortured and imprisoned:
    2) He mentions mystics were “often tortured and crucified”, but I’ve only read of Mansur al-Hallaj and maybe one or two others. Hallaj’s gruesome death was more due to political issues than theological. More often than not, some of the most senior scholars in the Muslim world were (and continue to be) Sufis – the former Grand Muftis of Pakistan and Egypt come to mind.
    3) The Sunni schools never closed the doors of ijtihad. He makes note that the process to derive rules still continues so that’s a good distinction. But the doors of ijtihad were not closed (though some scholars posited that they should be), there simply has not been anyone considered qualified at that level of scholarship to set up their own independent school for centuries; the last person who came close was Imam Suyuti (ra), but the other scholars didn’t recognize his right to do so.
    4) Deoband is a Islamic institution of learning (like al-Azhar, al-Qarawiyyin) that is fully within the Sunni tradition – you can ask any of the scholars of Syria who have praised their scholarship and works. They definitely a little more “rough around the edges” on some things, but fully within the Sunni spectrum of thought.
    5) He should have added Ijma (or consensus – especially of the first generation) as a source of law for Sunnis.
    6) He stated; “consensus groups can be of any size” – which is the first time I’ve heard heard this proposed. It logically makes no sense. That means me and my garage band can form a “consensus” on an issue and it’s as legitimate as rulings coming out of the IFA of the OIC:

    The notion is silly on its face and divests the word “consensus” of any lexical meaning.
    7) He stated that Ibadis consider Sunnis and Shiahs to be non-Muslims; I have never come across this. Now it is true they are descended from the original Khawarij who did have those extreme views, but the Ibadis broke off from them and chilled out a long time ago.

    Those were just some – there are other slight issues – but overall it’s a solid effort. Even if Colonel Lang considers Islam to be a danger, I appreciate that he can overcome his internal bias and approach the subject from a serious academic perspective (and gets most things right); it’s flattering actually that someone would take the time and effort to do so*. Which is why some of the mistakes should not detract from the work as a whole. I especially appreciate the humility with which he states certain things, like; “Some of the groups and their origins (from a Western point of view)”. I’m also glad he mentions extremist branches of Salafi-Wahhabi thought as being the troublesome jihadi sort. I may have my doctrinal issues with Salafis and Wahhabis, but many of them are simple Muslims and some of them are the most non-political Muslims you will ever find. Shaykh Hamza Yusuf described the best of them (fairly accurately) as “grumpy Amish”.


    *Note: I mean, some of the stuff he gets laser-accurate like the Mu’tazilite theological positions surviving among Zaydis is just awesome.

For example, i never stated that islam promoted celibacy — nor did i suggest. repeating a position i did not make and have thoroughly rebutted — brings us back to square on. i did not claim, i did not suggest that Islam demanded celibacy. Claiming that i did now has as much value as it did when it was first stated — not. It was never pressed.

    B. What i did say was — I applaud the celibacy in reference to women of MEK, which based on a documentary I saw was a requirement for recruitment.

    C. In response to incorrect assertions about what I contended — all thus far inaccurate, i included some commentary on celibacy and islam. Those commentaries make it clear the role celibacy plays in islamic life and I noted it reflected my understanding based on conversations I have had with muslims.

    D. no apologies required as you have only advanced and addressed the very issues that have no bearing or reflection of anything I have said.

    Based on the released data — the role of the CIA was financial and some material. But that coupe could not have been accomplished if not for a effective Iranian organized and cohesive contingent.

    Even in examining the CIA’s acknowledgement of support, it’s clear that this was an inside job by the military and wealthy elite. Of course it makes sense to play down the Iranian role — I suspect enough heads have rolled. But when looking at what took place and how — this was impossible with insider opposition. Monet to grease the wheels, but even when the CIA wanted to backout – the iranians intended to move forward. And one of the agents on scene disobeyed the hold order and proceeded. The Iranians intended to move forward regardless and further revealing is the debate over who did what as to the specifics between the CIA and the Iranian winners.

    My position as with Vietnam is rare — because given colloquial understanding – it’s just too inconvenient and costly to unravel and challenge that narrative. My disagreement with said narratives does not by definition make me a liar anymore than being accused on being a jew makes me a jew.

    Good grief.

    I think its high time for the Iranians to examine their own history of regime change and violent revolution — the US should cease being a scapegoat for every state’s dysfunctions, save when the data makes it clear.

    My dear friend, I simply said it is up for debate. I cannot make that call, others – far more qualified than I – do. Unfortunately, many in the West assume the dichotomy in the major sects of Islam means that “Sunni” is equivalent to “not Shiah”. This is not the case; Sunnis (or Ahl us-Sunnah wal-Jama’a) have specific doctrines and methodologies. This is why, in the Amman Message, the Salafi were distinguished as a group and not simply assumed to be under the Sunni umbrella – this document was signed by major Salafi and Wahhabi scholars themselves:

    The monotheism of Salafis and Wahhabis has never been in question. The closest school of law they adhere to is that of the Hanbali (with a very strong emphasis on the positions of Imam Ibn Taymiyyah [ra]) and they adhere to the creed as formulated by Imam Tahawi (ra); though some of their interpretations are a bit off from normative Sunni ones – especially those tending towards anthropomorphism.

    What sets them apart from the majority is what they themselves bring to the table; which is often a very charged and bitter my-way-or-the-highway approach to the religion. They are given to much arguing with people and have introduced a dangerous tendency among adherents where amateurs feel qualified to pass legal verdicts – especially in the realm of tossing accusations of takfir left and right. All of this has been recognized by some of their own scholars, if you know how significant Shaykh Albani (ra) was in the Salafi-Wahhabi circles, then it is worth reading his warnings to people who tread that path:

    I don’t have any personal grudge against many Salafis or Wahhabis and consider them my brothers in faith and will readily pray behind them (even though some might not pray behind me or even consider me Muslim). However, it cannot be overlooked that they have set in motion certain trends where seriously pathological and violent groups have emerged from among their ranks.

    You should read history of science by George Sarton, to find out about the contribution of Muslims to science that you use. These books are not re-printed again because they want you stay as illiterate as you are to make stupid comments and make an idiot of yourself.

    And they use you as a foot soldier for their army to massacre Muslims that you have been doing for a long time and especially since the 9/11 where was a FALSE FLAG OPERATION designed and implemented by Neocon Bush and Israel to frame Muslims so to invade, massacre, loot, rape and change the geopolitical of the region for ‘world government’ where “greater Israel is embedded.

    You are fooled by Orientalist racists, go and read “orientalism” by Edward Said to find out why you are making such a racist comment. Islamic civilization is NOT a threat, but YOU ARE, imperialism and Zionism. The ISIS is NOT islamic. ISIS, Al Qaeda and more are creation of the axis of Evil US-Israel-Britain as a proxy to invade and create chaos so to fool the illiterate LIKE YOU.

    They don’t re-print so no one knows that YOUR BASIC sciences like Mathematics, and Medicine has been stolen from Islamic sciences like Avicenna , Razi. The only medical book used in western University was Avicenna’s CANON, Islamic.

    [The Canon of Medicine remained a medical authority for centuries. It set the standards for medicine in Medieval Europe and the Islamic world and was used as a standard medical textbook through the 18th century in Europe.]

    You the racist, should know that the Western music is build upon Islamic music (Persian) where it traveled from the Middle East to Spain and then into Italy and France. Flamingo music that your get erection from, is based on and influenced by Arabic music so Turkish.

    Instead of making racist and ignorant comments, read a little bit then comment. I know illiterate racist Americans, like your illiterate ‘president’ don’t like to read, even a report, just watching porno videos to get better at licking pussy.

    A, I have no objection to response — ever. i do challenge attributing arguments i am not making to me. For example, i never stated that islam promoted celibacy — nor did i suggest. repeating a position i did not make and have thoroughly rebutted — brings us back to square on. i did not claim, i did not suggest that Islam demanded celibacy. Claiming that i did now has as much value as it did when it was first stated — not. It was never pressed.

    B. What i did say was — I applaud the celibacy in reference to women of MEK, which based on a documentary I saw was a requirement for recruitment.

    C. In response to incorrect assertions about what I contended — all thus far inaccurate, i included some commentary on celibacy and islam. Those commentaries make it clear the role celibacy plays in islamic life and I noted it reflected my understanding based on conversations I have had with muslims.

    D. no apologies required as you have only advanced and addressed the very issues that have no bearing or reflection of anything I have said.

    And at the end of the discussions i have returned to the initial issue of the MEK in relationship regime change supported by the US. The word or idea tagging so as to malign another is quire a staple among commenters here — but i won’t pretend that it is innocent.

    Lemme correct that for ya… Iran is NOT a threat to the ZUS at all… unless the ZUS makes the mistake to attack Iran.
    “Islamic civilization” is also NOT a threat to the ZUS… as for spineless puppet Europe, the threat only exists because of the general unwillingness of the EU ZUS puppet regimes to secure borders, or, in the case of some former huge colonial empires, like ZUK, bc of their own immigration policies…
    This is compounded by Europe’s subservience to the ZUS destabilizing ME wars, which generate large numbers of displaced people, many of whom then proceed to try to get into Europe.
    In the case of Turkey opening the floodgates, it’s pretty certain the US participated in it, to foster a strategy of tension in Europe.

    If you are implying the wars in the MENA are some kind of preemptive attacks against an Islamic civilization ‘threat’, that is a laughable and totally preposterous idea.

    The Zio-american wars in the MENA are part of the fraudulent war on terror, itself based on the 9/11 Zionist false flag & they are carried out to weaken and break up states in order to improve Israel’s position in the region.

    The Israeli Origin of 9/11 and the War on Terror by author C. Bollyn

    Both 9/11 and the War on Terror are products of Israeli military intelligence. 9/11 was meant to start the War on Terror. Understanding the Israeli origin of both is key to understanding the deception.

    The most anti mullah regime people in and outside Iran, have unmeasurable hate towards this treacherous group. The mullah are way preferred to this cult. Of course, unless the US and their buddies, the MEK, want to rule an empty country. And there’s no nation in ME whose people have such passionate love for their nation as Iranians do. Dynasties have come and gone, but Iran and its people are still there. They won’t forgive the MEK for siding with an enemy that invaded their country, and was claiming part of it (Khuzestan). They helped the enemy in the destruction of their homeland, aided in rapping their mothers, sisters, daughters, and Trump, Bolton, and the rest of the cabals think they will change Iran. With these traitors? They are about to create hatred that was never there . One need not be an Iranian to see thru MEK treachery.

    His love affair with Iran is ridiculous.

    Unlike you, I’ve actually been there. They don’t discuss Israel internally – they discuss Saudi and The Gulf States. They want to take down Saudi – not Israel. Rouhani works for Israel via the Swiss and German Jewish banks that are funding the \$5 billion a year “invasion” of the Arab Middle East with liquid cash injections.

    I was working with government analysts at The Persian Gulf Studies Center.

    I was to have my own TV show on Press TV.

    There has only been one time in Iran’s history when it did not work with Israel, and that was under President Mamoud Armedinejad. When he pulled the plug he was surrounded by Rouhani and Rafsanjani lackey Swiss banker crooks. His scientists were targeted and military bases blown as well as The Stuxnet virus.

    When he organized a “Holocaust Conference”, well…that was it…

    In the end Israel collapsed the Riall and took down the economy.

    I was in Iran from late October 2016 to January 2017. There were clearly ZERO meaningful sanctions on Iran. Luxury goods everywhere. Building everywhere. When i asked the lawyer assigned to me for my political asylum application where were all the sanctions he said, “This is the Silk Road baby, they can never stop the flow.”

    Huge tankers filled with oil run to Germany every week. Never stopped. The cash has never been stopped. The interference in the Middle East is deeply unpopular by the population who would like the \$5 billion back in iran.

    Iranians riot over the price of eggs and cost of living – you appear to think it would be difficult to take down Iran economically when they are not even enforcing the supposed “sanctions” they have on right now?

    Iran is a joke militarily – dependent on China and Russia who in turn rely on Israel to steal their tech for them.

    What Iran does have is a committed core of militia’s and IRGC.

    Here is a list of articles from The Times Of Israel detailing Israel’s LONG technological involvement with China. You tell me how this self evident collusion ties in with Middle East events, particularly as Russian Jewish Israeli gangsters PILE their drug money into Israeli banks. The Belt & Road Initiative and the fact Israel is BRAGGING it is supplying the high tech for all of it AND heading the BRICS, cyber security…


    Despite the simple self evident fact Israel is heading the whole damned FRAUD that is this Middle East break up – colluding heavily with Russia, China AND Iran to get the job done – it will not matter to the true believers who swallow the “alt-media” narrative fed by “experts” like Giraldi who will NEVER utter the words, “The Talpiot program”, NOR make ANY comment of the “Technology Juggernaught” that Israel has become and HOW that affects the narrative of the unfolding Middle East catastrophe.

    Netanyahu is BRAGGING in plain view – Giraldi has ZERO to say on this subject.


    I had alot to say on this subject since 2007.

    In 2011 I went to jail for three years over it. The Israeli Ambassador and Israeli deputy Foreign Minister came out against me – Giraldi…ZERO to say about it. Maybe Giraldi, is just another Jesuit faker Catholic? Likes his socialism and free stuff? Would prefer to live in wonderful free and democratic Putin’land?

    P.S Dealing doesn’t mean winning, I think west will loose to Islamic civilization.

    Your accusation of me being ignorant is an exercise in futility. While I may not be an expert on the issue at hand but I take extreme care in making sure that I talk within the orbit of my knowledge.

    First, I never said Islam is a defect. Just think about it, in the grand game of the civilizations, Islamic civilization is the finalist along with the western civilization. Obviously, they didn’t make it to this point by doing “nothing”. You don’t need history lessons to be able to make that assessment.

    Second, I’ve seen lot’s and lot’s of documentaries (MVGroup, BTN, FTN, of scientific history and I’ve concluded that the contributions of the Islamic civilization in the progress of the human race, not merely in science but also in finance, medicine, cosmology, legislation, arts, architecture, and all things really are superior to that of the west till date.

    There’s a Boris Johnson 2 parts documentory about the contribution of the Islamic civilization. An eye opener for a common folk in the west as to how much advanced the Islamic civilization really was. Their lifestyle was also far superior compared to the west. Among the rise and fall of the different civilizations, Islamic civilization has the best run for 800 years. As Andrew Marr said “Islam didn’t really expanded, it exploded” One of the reason why it was so successful in a short period of time is that and I quote Boris Johnson “Everyone wanted to be among the winners, to live a good life” again you really don’t need historical details to make that out. Popular astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson said in one of his shows “Arabic was the official language of science for 800 years”

    My conviction, give the credit where the credit is due….

    Although all this information is easily available for anyone looking, in the jewish controlled media, it’s never advertised. Jews have made sure that no one in the west come to discover of what the Islamic civilization is capable of. The MSM portrays the muslims/Arabs as sub-human to support the Anglo-Zionaist war on the Islamic civilization. Among the 1001 lies that Jews told, one of which is they are smarter then the rest of the world. Jews also installed Feminism/Gayism in the western societies to make a culture-shock situation against the Islamic conviction for the support of their war.

So instead I caved in and turned to alcohol for the satisfaction I was looking for. The neighbour that I hated became my best friend. I had to get close to him because of his connections to acquire the stuff at special discount, his knowledge about the use and effects of alcohol. It was the friendship born out of necessity. It had nothing to do with respect or emotions.

    I don’t think I made any claims that Jews were a threat to the US, certainly not a clear and present danger. I think US policy is too wedded to jewish as they relate to Israeli interests beyond what is helpful to the US.

    Muslims are quite agreeable to making a dollar, but I think as with many, including many Jews, they think of capitalism as mercantilism — they are not the same thing. Both rely on texts beyond scripture for basic rules concerning honest dealings and accountability.

    Our system while it is losing tough with both, has foundation underpinnings to accountability, and honest dealings.

    how limiting the practice of islam is to women depends on where one is practicing islam. One Pres hussein’s issues among muslims, was that he was allowed a lot of women in places of political, economic and intellectual arenas — though not just him — but the society as a whole. There are a lot of outspoken muslim women.

    Given the rise of other societies, in a form the west may lose. Anything is possible — with the caveat of — what winning means. i was giving a session once to a group of marines and let slip the idea that the US might nor even exist in the future — it just came out — i was back peddling like a duck to ut in context. But in the US our dissipation will be done in by ourselves. And sadly, millions of US citizens are aiding in that process, including political, economic and educational and religious leaders. And it need not be.

    Talking about clear and present dangers to people who either don’t recognize it or simply don’t care enough to prevent it as they invite those dangers in — is hard work. I voted for Pres Trump because I thought he got. He doesn’t, in my view.

    because anything is possible, I have to conceded that the west, the US, might lose. If so, it will nor be because we didn’t topple enough islamic states.

    If a nuclear device is “lit off” in an American or European city, it will have Israel’s fingerprints all over it. Israel is desperate to keep the American money spigot running, as well as sabotaging the Palestinian “peace process” that the world wants it to take seriously.

    In fact, if a nuclear device is “lit off” anywhere in the world, it will have come from Israel’s secret nuclear “stockpile”.

    The “power outage” in Atlanta was a convenient excuse for Israel to perform a logistical “sleight of hand”, as an Israeli plane was allowed to land and take off during the “power outage” without receiving customs clearance or inspection. This is one of many Israeli companies that possesses a “special exemption” granted by the U S government that frees it from customs inspections. Just maybe another one of Israel’s nukes was just being pre-positioned or nuclear triggers (tritium) were being renewed, getting ready for “the big one”. As most Americans are tired of all of the foreign wars being fought for Israel’s benefit, another “incident” on American soil would be enough to galvanize the American public, once again, (just like WTC 9-11) to support another war for Israel’s benefit. Israel’s “samson option” is a real threat to “light one off” in a European or American city, if Israel’s interests are not taken seriously.

    Israel refuses to abide by IAEA guidelines concerning its nukes as they are already distributed around the world. Israel would not be able to produce all of them as most of them are not in Israel, proper. No delivery systems are needed as Israel’s nukes are already “in place”. Look for another “false flag” operation with the blame being put on Iran or Syria. You can bet that some Iranian or Syrian passports will be found in the rubble.

    Israel also threatens to detonate nuclear devices in several US cities. Talk about total INSANITY; the so-called “Samson Option” is it.

    As an aside, American “foreign aid” is prohibited from being given to any country that has not signed the “Nuclear Non-proliferation Treaty” or refuses to abide by “International Atomic Energy Agency” (IAEA) guidelines regarding its nuclear devices. Guess what?? Israel does not abide by EITHER and still gets the majority of American “foreign aid”. This prohibition also applies to countries that do not register their “agents of a foreign government” with the U S State Department. Guess what?? Israel (again) with its “American Israel Political Action Committee” (AIPAC) still gets “foreign aid” in contravention of American law..

    There are forty or so congressmen, senators and thousands of high-level policy “wonks” infecting the U S government who hold “dual citizenship” with Israel. Such dual citizenship must be strictly prohibited. Those holding dual citizenship must be required to renounce said foreign citizenship. Refusal to do so should result in immediate deportation with loss of American citizenship. Present and former holders of dual citizenship should never be allowed to serve in any American governmental capacity.

    When Netanyahu addressed both houses of congress, it was sickening to see our politicians slobber all over themselves to PROVE that they were unconditional supporters of Israel…just who the hell do they work for? Certainly not for the interests of the American people and the United States…they should renounce their United States citizenship and be deported to Israel…

    [However, after all is said, you still haven’t negated my assertion that Islamic civilization is a threat for western civilization.]

    I assume by saying ‘Islam’ is a threat, you mean Islamic civilization is a threat to Western civilization, which this is called ‘the clash of Civilizations’ theory HOAX by Samuel Huntington/Bernard Lewis to frighten Western population not knowing about the history of Christianity and the West against the rest make them frighten. This hoax theory appeared after the end of COLD WAR to keep the population active and on board to achieve the final destiny, the world hegemony.

    In Huntington’s view, China’s rise is problematic because is going to assert itself as the regional hegemon and then other countries and civilization, Islamic, will join china to bring Western hegemony down.

    Look, The western empire, British then and American now always has used Muslims as food soldiers to expand their empire. In India, they used Muslims to expand their influence and topple Mutual empire and outlawed their language, which is Persian, and then divided the country to weaken India as a threat. The west has influenced Islamic civilization for many centuries and they have a lot in common contrary to your thinking that they ‘are enemies’.
    This HOAX theory was pushed to keep the Western population in check, to bring them on board for their wars against a straw man, Muslims, for expansion of their influence and final destiny, hegemony over the world.

    Of course, no empire stays as ‘empire’ forever and eventually go down. American empire for sure is declining, but I assure you that the replacement will not be ‘Islamic’, although Muslims have the population, resources and human capital to achieve it. Have you seen Islamic world as divided and powerless as today? The clash of civilization HOAX theory wants to weaken all Islamic countries for its goal, where in my opinion is a mistake.

    It is true that American Empire is declining for some times now. These wars actually helps its own demise. They are using invasion, occupation and committing crimes against humanity abroad will definitely result in their demise, especially the rise of an illiterate Zionist stooge to power in US, will speed the process up and many will benefit from it including China and Russia. I hope we will get multi polar center of powers. I assure you that ‘Islamic civilization’ is not the next empire in line, not in yours and mine life time, not even in our grandchildren’s life time, so RELAX, but China may do that sooner than later.

    If you have not read ‘Orientalism’ by Edward Said, you may need to read it to understand why the west is always preoccupied with demonizing other groups, especially Muslims.

    In my view here are some relevant references:

    “23 All things are lawful [g]for me, but not all things are helpful; all things are lawful for me, but not all things [h]edify. 24 Let no one seek his own, but each one the other’s well-being.

    25 Eat whatever is sold in the meat market, asking no questions for conscience’ sake; 26 for “the earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness.”

    27 If any of those who do not believe invites you to dinner, and you desire to go, eat whatever is set before you, asking no question for conscience’ sake. 28 But if anyone says to you, “This was offered to idols,” do not eat it for the sake of the one who told you, and for conscience’ sake; [i]for “the earth is the Lord’s, and all its fullness.” 29 “Conscience,” I say, not your own, but that of the other. For why is my liberty judged by another man’s conscience? 30 But if I partake with thanks, why am I evil spoken of for the food over which I give thanks?

    31 Therefore, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God. 32 Give no offense, either to the Jews or to the Greeks or to the church of God, . . .”

  136. @Hessler

    Your position is an issue very much in discussion among believers about the meaning of the guarantee you reference. The juxtaposition between faith and what that looks like (works)

    14 What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Depart in peace, be warmed and filled,” but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? 17 Thus also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.

    18 But someone will say, “You have faith, and I have works.” Show me your faith without [a]your works, and I will show you my faith by [b]my works. 19 You believe that there is one God. You do well. Even the demons believe—and tremble! 20 But do you want to know, O foolish man, that faith without works is [c]dead? 21 Was not Abraham our father justified by works when he offered Isaac his son on the altar? 22 Do you see that faith was working together with his works, and by works faith was made [d]perfect? 23 And the Scripture was fulfilled which says, “Abraham believed God, and it was [e]accounted to him for righteousness.” And he was called the friend of God. 24 You see then that a man is justified by works, and not by faith only.

    25 Likewise, was not Rahab the harlot also justified by works when she received the messengers and sent them out another way?

    26 For as the body without the spirit is dead, so faith without works is dead also.”

    Bit OT, but I wanted to provide a bit of an update on the latest developments regarding The Lobby’s efforts to get the position of Special Envoy to Monitor & Combat Anti-Semitism filled.

    A few weeks back, I posted the following tweet by the Executive Director of the ADL, Jason Greenblatt:

    This just in:

    So The Lobby would like to tighten the screws on The Dumb Goyim even further by calling for the establishment of a Special Envoy to Monitor & Combat Anti-Semitism? Get ready folks, Big Brother is about to get even Bigger.

    Well, based on an article, Pompeo Promises Anti-Semitism Envoy Eventually, But Advocates Urge Quick Action, released by the Jewish daily, the Forward, it appears that this position was established way back in 2004 by the George W Bush Administration.

    Here’s the article in full, followed by the letter the ADL recently sent to SoS, Pompeo… they are worth the read.



    Pompeo Promises Anti-Semitism Envoy Eventually, But Advocates Urge Quick Action
    Ben FractenbergJune 1, 2018
    Advocacy groups welcomed Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s promise to appoint a special envoy to monitor and combat anti-Semitism, but continued to urge him to fill the vacancy as soon as possible.

    Pompeo was vague on a specific timeline, telling legislators he’d “move on” picking someone after Rep. Chris Smith (R-N.J.) asked him in a hearing last week to quickly appoint an envoy to combat “this scourge of anti-Semitism, which is rising all over the globe.” Advocates voiced frustration with the lack of specifics, but it’s unlikely the job, which has been open since President Trump’s inauguration last year, will be filled soon.

    The director of Human Rights First, Susan Corke, told the Forward she was “heartened” by Pompeo’s promise and that she’s been giving assurances by other State Department officials that they won’t drag their feet, but was still a bit frustrated “he didn’t commit to a timeline.”

    Corke’s group helped lead a coalition of dozens of organizations and individuals, including the Anti-Defamation League and former anti-Semitism envoy Ira Forman, to sign a May 23 letter addressed to Pompeo calling for a swift appointment.

    “That position has been vacant for over 16 months now,” Corke added. “This should be an obvious one. It’s required by law and has bipartisan support in Congress.”

    The State Department did not return a request for comment.

    Advocacy groups are already dealing with an administration that has been slow to fill key positions throughout the executive branch.

    Former Secretary of State Rex Tillerson was particularly unhurried, with more than 60 Senate-confirmed posts remaining vacant during his tenure.

    Tillerson had also expressed skepticism over the anti-Semitism position’s impact.

    “One of the things that we are considering — and we understand why [special envoys] were created and the good intentions behind why they were created — but one of the things we want to understand is by doing that, did we weaken our attention to those issues? Because the expertise in a lot of these areas lies within the bureaus, and now we’ve stripped it out of the bureaus,” Tillerson said during a 2017 hearing.

    The position was created in 2004 under the Global Anti-Semitism Review Act. Past envoys have worked with European governments to counter anti-Semitic incidents and appoint their own officials to monitor hatred.

    Forman, for example, worked with Hungarian leaders in 2015 to abandon plans to erect a statue honoring former government minister Bálint Hóman, who helped deport more than 400,000 Jews to Auschwitz in 1944.

    There has been a noticeable rise in anti-Semitic incidents worldwide since that position was left vacant.

    Britain saw a 34 percent jump in assaults in 2017 and France reportedly had a 26 percent jump during the same period, according to figures from a British anti-Semitism watchdog group. And this year saw the fatal stabbing of an 85-year-old French Holocaust survivor in March, in what Paris prosecutors believe was an anti-Semitic attack.

    Anti-Defamation League spokesman Todd Gutnick said they too hoped the role would be filled “as quickly as possible” considering the rise in violence.

    “America plays an essential role in the fight against anti-Semitism, but this role has been hamstrung for well over a year,” Gutnick said in a statement. “Giving the near daily reports of anti-Semitic attacks and incidents across Europe and elsewhere, there’s no better time for a capable and dedicated individual in this post to spur diplomatic efforts to stem anti-Semitism abroad.”

    Brookings Middle East policy expert Shalom Lipner said he didn’t think the appointment would be held up indefinitely since combating anti-Semitism was as “apolitical an issue as you can find right now.”

    He added that the rise in anti-Jewish assaults while the post was left vacant could lead some to question the ability of a single, new envoy to “put the toxic genie back in its lantern,” but said the post still “holds great symbolic value,” as world leaders wonder whether Washington will continue to weigh in on instances of anti-Semitism in their country.

    “A lot of people look for moral leadership,” said Lipner, who served as an advisor in the Israeli Prime Minister’s Office. “This issue can affect broader relationships.”

    The Honorable Michael Pompeo Secretary of State
    U.S. Department of State
    2201 C Street NW
    Washington, DC 20520 Dear Mr. Secretary:
    Now that you have been confirmed as Secretary of State, we wish you every success in this essential work and in representing the interests of every American. As members of civil society and faith-based groups who care deeply about combating global anti-Semitism, we hope that the United States will remain a leader in fighting this global problem. A near-term action you can take to signal that this will be a priority for you is to immediately identify and appoint someone to the position of U.S. Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti- Semitism, as you pledged to do in your written nomination hearing responses. We are also concerned that the position of Assistant Secretary for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor remains vacant. These two positions work best when they work together.
    The special envoy position has now sat vacant for over fifteen months, seven of which have passed since Secretary of State Rex Tillerson recommitted to retain it in August. Five bipartisan Congressional letters have been sent to the administration on the subject – emphasizing just how seriously Members of both parties and in both chambers of Congress view this continued vacancy. We urge you to work with the White House to advance the staffing of the Special Envoy position as one of your priority actions.
    The absence of a U.S. Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism is particularly distressing given the increased number of anti-Semitic incidents taking place around the world, including in many countries where the United States enjoys otherwise strong diplomatic ties.
    For example, during 2017, violent anti-Semitic assaults increased 34 percent in Britain according to the Community Security Trust and increased 26 percent in France according to the French Ministry of the Interior. In March, an 85-year-old French Holocaust survivor was brutally stabbed to death because she was Jewish and left to burn in her home in Paris. Two Jewish houses of worship were firebombed in Sweden, including one where Jewish youths were gathered inside. And synagogues in Tunisia and Iran were also desecrated.
    In January 2018, the Polish Sejm passed a law, later signed by President Andrzej Duda, that criminalizes certain speech about individual Polish complicity or collaboration during the Holocaust. As a result, anti-Semitic rhetoric in Poland, in both private media and on state television, has intensified.

    The Special Envoy position and the Office to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism, established under the Global Anti-Semitism Review Act (Public Law 108-332), which Congress passed in 2004 with broad bipartisan support, and signed into law by President George W. Bush, were created to respond to crises such as these. Past envoys have developed and implemented policies and partnerships to combat antisemitism, working with foreign governments and civil society.
    With each additional day that passes without a Special Envoy due to U.S. inaction, Jewish communities around the world are less safe. And our European allies do not have a high level official dedicated to fighting anti-Semitism to whom to turn for assistance.
    Congressional commitment to the position and staffing the office has since been prioritized through appropriations. House Report 114-693 on the FY17 Omnibus specified that “the Committee recommendation… includes funds for support of the Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism.” The explanatory statement on the FY17 Omnibus went further, declaring that “the Secretary of State is directed to fill the position of Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism authorized by Public Law 108-332 in a timely manner.”
    Last summer, nearly two dozen of the nation’s most prominent religious leaders – including representatives of the Catholic, Muslim, Protestant, Evangelical, Hindu, Sikh, and Jewish faiths – signed an open letter to Secretary Tillerson urging him to fill the position “as soon as possible.” In June of last year, 116 Members of Congress signed a letter that urged Secretary Tillerson “to maintain staff in the Office to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism” while an envoy was being selected.
    We cannot afford further delay in fully addressing the problems and threats facing Jewish communities around the world. By appointing a respected and effective advocate, and equipping the office of the Special Envoy with adequate resources and staffing, you will be reasserting U.S. moral leadership on this issue and reassuring Jewish communities that
    the United States stands with them.
    Failing to come together in the face of this rising tide of hate also would threaten the progress made since the Holocaust toward a world based on respect for human rights. Where antisemitism is resurgent, it is a harbinger of greater human rights problems. Therefore, it is also important to nominate an Assistant Secretary of State for Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor who will work closely with the Special Envoy.
    We urge you to fully implement Public Law 108-332 by returning adequate administrative and subject-matter staff to the Office to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism and appointing a respected and qualified U.S. Special Envoy to Monitor and Combat Anti-Semitism without delay.

    Hi geokat,

    By paraphrase of P.G’s article title, am going to write something rather mean spirited toward Bishop Bambera.

    First, as a few commenters here seem to have forgotten, this article title is “MEK’s money sure can’t buy love.”

    By signing the letter, it’s apparent to me that Bishop Bambera’s “love” for elite US Zionist censors & contempt for anti-semitism might help the Scranton Diocese relieve some additional financial pressure.

    With prayer that you won’t keel over from boredom, geo, I’ll offer context. (Zigh)

    F.y.i, the headline in today’s The Times-Tribune is “Diocese has jury report on abuse.”

    The Diocese of Scranton & five (5) other Roman Catholic dioceses received a Pennsylvania grand jury report that outlined how decades of sexual abuse allegations against priests were handled administratively.

    And when will the the report seep down to the flock trough? Eh-hem. “State Attorney General Josh Shapiro expects the grand jury report late this month…,” right before Independence Day fireworks are launched (on scene) at Scranton’s courthouse square.

    Selah, (Zigh) Indulgences, “put your two-cents in and away goes your sin!”

    Thanks, geo!

    Hi Hessler, been away a few days and didn’t look at UR.
    A very good analogy. If you’re a stranger in town/country. But this is our home (The West) and our people (Caucasian). We’re not strangers, we surely can find a nice “pub”, or a discounted “liquor store “. After all we own the “damn breweries, distilleries , and vineyards “. Now, in the world, why would we want someone (Rothschild ) to point out where are our own bars (Taxes) are, for God’s sake.
    We’ve become dependent on the very parasite that’s making us sick, and which will make eventually kill us…..?????

    Hi Frankie P
    Well put. Begging them for money, ironically given by “us”. Read the news written by our own (some), supervised by an “expert Zionist “. MSM , Hollywood entertainment propaganda, using our Caucasian sisters and daughters to enhance the message, always with a propped up Jew who can’t act. Pathetic how we can’t see this. I think if our choices (shoved upon) are these cuckhold whores in all three branches of our sinking “ship “, we should encourage all on the BDSM

    Look at loyalty, they won’t join the army of “slaves”, but are proud to fly from the land of their birth and join a ” foreign terrorist group (IDF) and proudly kill native Palestinians, the “Nurse” case and this government only has praises for this terrorist. When did Palestinians have a conflict with us? But all the butchering is done by our money, our weapons …,,, and our “citizens “…..,.

    Did the hunger strike bear useful fruit?
