‘The Times of Israel, an independent Israeli newspaper that counts among its staff a number of former reporters for the Israeli daily Ha’aretz, published a fascinating but largely overlooked story datelined Jerusalem and Zhitomir, Ukraine, March 16, 2014, and which was written by its respective Russian and Ukrainian correspondents, Hirsh Ostropoler and I. Z. Grosser-Spass, citing a secret report provided to the Israeli government [1].

The report, written by a select panel of scholars of Jewish history drawn from academia and other research centers, concluded that that European Jews are in fact descended from Khazars, a war-like Mongol-Tatar group that ruled over Ukraine and southern Russia, which mass-converted to Judaism in the eighth century AD.

Zionists have long argued that the land claimed by Israel was the biblical birthright of the Jewish people who were forced from the land in a so-called «diaspora» after repeated conquests by various empires. Proof that Ashkenazi Jews, which make up a majority of the Israeli Jewish population, have no historical link to Palestine would call into question the entire premise of Israel as the historical «5,000-year old» homeland of the Jewish people.’

Putin Aide Says Israel is Training ISIS

8 Dec 2014 A senior aide to Russian President Vladimir Putin has accused Israel’s Mossad of training Islamic State (aka ISIS) terrorists operating in Iraq and Syria, Iran’s Press TV reports. Alexander Prokhanov told the state-controlled news outlet [as opposed to ‘corporate-controlled news outlet,’ a descriptor we’ve yet to see when foreign news outlets cite any report in the US mainstream media] that Mossad is also likely to have transferred some of its “spying experience” to the leadership of ISIS, even as Israeli military advisers assisted the terrorists in other ways. Prokhanov said ISIS is a byproduct of US policies in the Middle East. “ISIS is a tool at the hands of the United States. They tell the Europeans that if we (the Americans) do not intervene, ISIS will cause you harm,” he said. In fact, however, he added, Iran and Russia are the main targets of ISIS terror.

‘Israel, not Russia, was behind the downing of the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 over eastern Ukraine in July, an American political commentator says.

In a phone interview with Press TV on Sunday, Professor James Henry Fetzer said, “While the United States is claiming that the newly released photographs by Russia — claiming that the Ukrainian military jets targeted the Malaysia Airlines Flight MH17 — are preposterous, [but] that does not mean they are not authentic, or that the plane having been shot down by Ukrainian jets is not true.”

On Friday, Russian state media released satellite images purportedly showing a Mikoyan MiG-29 fighter jet firing a missile at the MH17.’

The decision this week by the ICC not to investigate the point-blank killing, by Israeli commandos, of nine unarmed Turkish passengers on board the Mavi Marmara aid vessel in 2010, although there was a ‘reasonable basis’ to believe that Israel had committed a war crime in its maritime attack upon civilians, seems indefensible.

The decision not to prosecute will inevitably raise questions about the integrity and impartiality of the ICC in the face of political pressure by the global Israel lobby that already operates in Washington, London and Brussels.

The reason given by the ICC chief prosecutor that the court is more concerned with larger scale incidents, ignores the fact that this attack upon civilian passengers in international waters was part of a six year campaign by the Israeli government to effect an illegal regime change in Gaza by means of a blockade of essential goods to 1.8 million Palestinian Arabs – that still continues today.

This perverse decision would seem to have severely damaged the court’s credibility in any future war crimes investigation and could well signal its own demise as a claimed international body that has yet to be ratified by the U.S. (or its client state, Israel), China or India – i.e. over half the global community.

‘On November 9, the ugly face of America’s money-saturated election process was put on full display.

Sheldon Adelson and Haim Saban, two billionaires with right-wing, pro-Israel agendas, took the stage at the Israeli American Council’s inaugural conference in Washington, D.C. They fantasized about bombing Iran and about buying the New York Times because they said it’s biased against Israel. Both are bound to play an outsized role in the 2016 presidential elections by flooding the campaign with money to support their favored candidates. In a post-Citizens United world, Adelson and Saban are kings, and Israel will be the beneficiary of their largesse if the donors have the ear of a future president.’

‘The United States is spending an “endless” amount of wealth and sacrificing human lives to fight wars on behalf of Israel, a “disaster” for the American people and US foreign policy, the co-founder of Scholars for 9/11 Truth says.

“America is now investing endless troops, endless time, endless treasury, exceeding trillions of dollars now, in fighting wars for Israel,” said James Henry Fetzer, who’s also an editor at Veterans Today and a retired professor in Madison, Wisconsin.

“This is a complete and total disaster for the American people brought to us by none other than George W. Bush and especially Dick Cheney and Donald Rumsfeld,” Fetzer told Press TV on Monday.’

A cartoon appearing in an Israeli newspaper is under fire (Haaretz.com)

An editorial cartoon in Israel’s Haaretz newspaper is drawing criticism for using Sept. 11 imagery to depict U.S.-Israel relations under Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.

In it, a character resembling Netanyahu is seen flying a small plane into a building that resembles a World Trade Center tower. An American flag flies atop the skyscraper.

The cartoon, which appeared Thursday, comes after the Israeli leader was reportedly criticized by an Obama administration official as being a “chickensh**.”

‘A new federal lawsuit in the United States seeks immediate release of a government report about how American charities contribute to Israel’s secret nuclear weapons program.

The Institute for Research: Middle Eastern Policy has filed a lawsuit in the DC District Court to obtain an unclassified study conducted in 1987 for the Pentagon titled “Current Technology Issues in Israel.”

The closely-held report named three institutions– Israel’s Weizmann Institute, Technion University, and Hebrew University– which raise “substantial tax-exempt charitable funding through affiliates in the United States.”’

Raytheon, a major American defense contractor and the world’s largest producer of guided missiles, has won an Israeli contract to supply $149.3 million in Tamir missiles, the projectiles used in Israel’s Iron Dome defense system.

The Iron Dome system was jointly developed and funded by the US. It is credited by the IDF with shooting down over 700 rockets from Gaza that were headed for Israeli population centers, a “kill ratio” of about 85-90 percent of the total rockets fired at population centers. (Most of the 4,500 rockets fired from Gaza fell in uninhabited areas in Israel or, in some cases, inside Gaza.)

The contract, from Israel’s Rafael Advanced Defense Systems Ltd., is intended to expand Israel’s supply of Tamir missiles, according to a Raytheon press release last week.

‘Much of the grim and murky circumstances of the Zionist ethnic cleansing of Palestinians in the late 1940s have gradually been exposed over time. One aspect – rarely researched or deeply discussed – is the internment of thousands of Palestinian civilians within at least 22 Zionist-run concentration and labor camps that existed from 1948 to 1955. Now more is known about the contours of this historical crime, due to the comprehensive research by renowned Palestinian historian Salman Abu Sitta and founding member of the Palestinian resource center BADIL Terry Rempel.

The facts are these.’

Let’s begin with 1910-1913. The Rothschilds had several prominent business partners in America. Amongst them were John D Rockefeller, J P Morgan, the Warburg brothers and Jacob Schiff.  There was  a gathering of their agents on a private railcar across the river from Manhattan on November 22, 1910. They went from there to Jekyll Island Georgia to draft the legislation that would become the Federal Reserve Act. Also in 1913 the IRS was created. The Federal Reserve Act gave Bankers the right to charge us interest on money they created out of nothing. The IRS was needed to pay the interest on the money that was created out of thin air.

1917. The Jewish Bankers of London and New York had decided to sell America’s entry into WW I in exchange for the Balfour Declaration written in the form of a letter to Lord Rothschild. Wealthy Jewish families financed the Soviet revolution.

1920-1933. Prohibition made Jewish mobsters like the Purple Gang, the Bronfmans and other fantastically wealthy. When alcohol prohibition was over, drug prohibition began with the banning of certain drugs and marijuana.

1929-1939. The Great Depression. Millions of Americans starved to death. A Leftist radio priest had millions of followers. But no reform was  allowed for the monetary system. The Federal Reserve made rich people richer and poor people poorer. Rich people do not die in famines.

1939-1945. The US was maneuvered into World War II. This took some doing. Lord Halifax, the British Foreign Secretary, had told the Germans that His Majesty’s Jewish government wanted them to gather the Germans together and to protect Christian Europe from the Soviets who had killed tens of millions of Gentiles and had threatened to kill more in Europe. The Rothschild owned Bank of  England had loaned Hitler £350 million to buy guns and to reorganize Farben.  The Polish Jewish Communists began a campaign to kill German civilians. And the Polish government was encouraged to use their military forces to fire at an unarmed German planes carrying mail to Danzig. That did force Hitler to invade. Then the Rothschild owned governments of Britain and France declared war.

The Soviets had devoted 40% of their GDP to arms causing widespread hunger. When the war started, Stalin had ten times as many tanks, ten times as many planes and ten times as many artillery pieces as did the Germans.  Hitler attacked Stalin because his intelligence services had been warned of an invasion. Initially, the Germans had some success against the Soviets because the latter’s Army was in an attack position and not in a defensive mode. Neutral Swedish observers reported that 60% of the Soviet losses were due to Russians killing each other. Not everyone approved of the massive slaughter of Gentiles in the Soviet Union. But FDR did manage to reluctantly bring the Japanese Emperor into the war. The Emperor had been trying to negotiate a settlement with FDR since 1936. He had even offered to pull out of China and to become an ally of the US against the Soviet Union. He did not understand that the whole purpose of the war was to expand Jewish Communism into Europe and Asia. FDR at Yalta agreed to give north Korea to Stalin.

The post war period saw the rise of the Cold War which first required the elimination of the real anti-Communists like General Patton. The Cold War was very expensive. And then there was the rise of Israel as a state. More about the costs of the Israeli state later.

Israel sprays ‘skunk water’ into Palestinian homes

22 Sept 2014 A new report highlights Israel’s use of supposedly “non-lethal weapons” against unarmed Palestinian protesters. The report – “Proven Effective: Crowd control weapons in the Occupied Territories” – was published by the group Who Profits and launched at a conference in Jerusalem on 10 September. Focusing on tear gas, skunk water and “The Scream” (a high volume acoustic device strapped atop Israeli military vehicles), the report documents their regular use to violently crush unarmed Palestinian demonstrators throughout the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem.
