  4. I hate to fall into the stereotype of a Jew-obsessed UNZ reader. However this deserves notice. A dissident geneticist Dr. Eran Elhaik is upending the idea that Ashkenazi Jews are descended from ancient Levantines. Here is his website https://khazardnaproject.wordpress.com/2017/08/29/shaming-23andme-works/

    I had the pet bullshit theory that Jews are pretty average in intelligence, but that Jews more closely related to the Khazars are more intelligent, and since Khazars are Turkic and Turkic people are more Asian, and Asians are pretty smart, it is the Asian portion of Khazar genes that is responsible for Jewish geniuses.

    Well that too is bullshit, the video below explain the multi-people non-levantine origin of Ashkenazi Jews. but one really neat fact is that those who Ashkenaz whose ancestors spoke exclusively Yiddish have more East Asian (Q haplogroup male, and the equivalent Asian female haplogroup) than other Ashkenazi Jews.
    Dr. Eran Elhaik says this at 27:30 in the video below

    neat stuff

    It looks like an Iran war is unofficially off the table. Ukraine is a no go. North Korea has long secured its borders. Is this it for the US military? Forays in Africa and Middle Eastern states? At a minimum I thought maybe Venezuela would see some limited operations but nope.

    It’s very odd. An America without wars of aggression/wars of choice is no America at all. Instead it will settle for more pseudo-racial tension as the main distraction. Boring.

    Emergency rule is not going to go away and Joe Biden is not going to go away. The Disunited States remain loyal to D.C. money masters. The Republican party a silly shadow of a political party standing for nothing and caring about pelf. The States squat on their haunches and the population obeys. Then we can talk about the unseemly haste to inject everyone with experimental drugs and let the devil take the hindmost. I do not believe we have a Republic, and I am not convinced we have any real interest in being one. We are returned to a time darker than that our poet Vachel Lindsay wrote in with few men and mostly cowards who pretend they are free.

    God Send The Regicide
    Would that the lying rulers of the world
    Were brought to block for tyrannies abhorred.
    Would that the sword of Cromwell and the Lord,
    The sword of Joshua and Gideon,
    Hewed hip and thigh the hosts of Midian.

    Let Gabriel and Michael with him ride.

    Maybe they could carpet-bomb French towns again ? It’s been a while.

    French bashing is still well tolerated, even popular in most English speaking countries. There should not be that big of an outcry.

    Plus they dare build their own fighter jets, even get them to fly: that would show them to behave, all the while keeping the U.S military busy for a week or so.

    Much better than poking the Russian bear who just showed, here and there, that he’s had about enough.

    Bonus, the surrendering monkeys could be made to give thanks, maybe pay for the help, even adopt junk food and ban healthcare once and for all.

    Only good things, I tell you.

  8. First off it looks like the black woman wasn’t ‘quite’ all there, if you know what I mean. Not quite the full shilling.
    Secondly, the string of attacks, on Asians, will be down to western msm calling out the fake virus as having originated in Wuhan , China.

    So when you add western, msm propaganda with low IQ blacks (and whites) you get revenge attacks on Asians.

    I’m not trying to defend blacks and their high criminality, but certainly of late, courtesy of the Covid 1984 fake virus propaganda, it’s certainly one of the main reasons for attacks on Asians.

    On the bright side, if we must have blacks, stealing from ‘Black Lives Matter’ strikes me as one of the more harmless activities they could get up. But don’t hide the stories. We all want to hear.

  10. @anyone with a brain

    ‘… Dr. Eran Elhaik is upending the idea that Ashkenazi Jews are descended from ancient Levantines…’

    It’s all good — but really, this is like upending the idea that there’s a Father Christmas.

    No, Jews didn’t come from Palestine. Palestinians come from Palestine.

    Strangely, i usually get an immediate status update (typically yes, we will buy the book and make it available) but in this case, the request has been “under review” for 10 days now. Am I smelling censorship at work?

    Anything at this point. Anything. Make me feel its budget is justified. It’s like buying a sports car and just parking it in your garage…. I mean… Come on. I understand prestige but this is just asinine. I half suspect all these quasi-racial issues are due to the fact there is no war to distract the masses.

  13. CIA “Masters-of-the-World”
    Short Technical History
    3,097 words

    Abstract: I offer a General Thesis involving the Globalist Deep State initiating and developing the capacity to take over the world, and to effectively create a hidden Technocracy run by the United States CIA – even before the CIA per se’ was created.

    It likely began with the Manhattan Project in 1942 and other dirty tricks accomplished during World War II under the OSS, and progressed through various other events of world-balance-of-power-changing significance including the blocking of the Suez Canal in 2021. I cite this only as a hint at the capability of what the Globalist Deep State through the CIA can do if it wants to: the making of airplanes crash and disappear; buildings collapse, people disappear, elections stolen, markets manipulated, “if you can dream it – the CIA can DO it!”

    I suggest that the CIA (or whatever one cares to call it) has had approximately 80 years of unlimited money; unlimited intellectual monopoly; unlimited other resources (material and otherwise); and most importantly, unlimited carte blanche ‘permission’ and direction if you will, to do whatever the hell it wants to do to assist the Globalist Deep State in continuing to amass more power and money and control over the world for its own private ends.

    [MORE]

    This thesis is purely conjecture on my part. This list is not exhaustive; it is just what I’ve been able to cobble together from commonly available resources. I’m sure others can add dozens or hundreds of other events of world-balance-of-power-changing importance of like kind of which I’m unaware.

    Due to the nature of the Manhattan Project, its technology, security, secrecy, operations, protocols, etc., it’s not too difficult to imagine that the Manhattan Project was in fact a “CIA Project” – even before the CIA was in existence.

    As with The Prisoner’s Dilemma, the CIA/Deep State is now at a point where it can mess with people and other nations just because it CAN, not necessarily because it needs to. If we agree that the CIA is the ‘dirty tricks’ branch of the Globalist Deep State, like it or not, it does seem that the CIA has found the kernel by which it is able to largely do most anything it wants with the world and thus, perusing this list, one might gain a better understanding of how the hell the world REALLY works!

    * * *

    1) 1942-1945; Manhattan Project: EVERYTHING in the world changed after the Manhattan Project:

    – the Manhattan Project was the single, seminal event in world history that changed the way life is lived for most all humans, the way governments govern, and the way the slaves and peons experience reality

    – the government became the god of everything for everyone, like it or not

    – the ‘social contract’ supposedly established by the Constitution and 200 years of US history was thrown out the window by the covert, extra-legal changes the operation of the Manhattan Project made in the lives of US citizens – whether they knew it or not

    – life in these United States and in the rest of the world can rightfully be marked on the grand scale as “before the bomb” and “after the bomb”; the bomb became the conceptual line of demarcation; the independent Yankee Farmer was on his way out and the corporate/government slave/worker was surely on his way in. The Manhattan Project proved, maybe more than any other one thing, that government CAN become all-encompassing, all powerful, all amoral… and that consequently, individual citizens can become unwitting pawns and slaves to the government/corporate establishment doing anything and everything the master of the slaves wants them to do: “give me bread – and I’ll be your butcher of other humans – even though I may possess one of the brightest scientific minds ever known”…

    – saying something was ‘secret’ and that it could not be divulged gave the government tremendous leverage over the rest of the world in all fields as it had a virtual monopoly on what was ‘true’ and what was not. Thus rose the proliferation of fake news, lies, psyops, propaganda, infomercials, disinformation, etc.; the black and white of truth and falsehood became intentionally blurred by government obfuscation designed to control the minds, beliefs and actions of citizens. “We can’t tell you that because it’s classified”.

    – the “Government Blackball” was the tool used to intimidate, coerce and control citizens in the workplace by the threat or taking of job opportunities from them for infractions of national security; “if you mess up here, we will revoke your Security Clearance and we can make it so you will never work on a government contract project ever again ANYWHERE; and that’s just the beginning; if you mess up badly enough we can shoot you on sight, hang you in front of your wife and kids, or imprison you for life; we have your mug shot and prints on file so you can’t run or hide”; Nature creates the sex drive; the sex drive creates kids; the law demands parents feed, cloth, educate and house those kids; the bankers create housing (Levittown’s) and 30 year mortgages; the government creates jobs; one man that messes up is sufficient example to scare the shit out of millions of others who need jobs to feed and house THEIR kids; the same technique and process infiltrates throughout large corporations and the military-industrial-complex, wall street, everywhere! This kept most workers meek, docile, hungry, compliant – and silent. THAT BEHAVIOR CREATED FOLLOWING GENERATIONS OF MEEK, MILD, COMPLIANT, CONFORMIST CITIZEN-WORKERS – many of whom are your neighbors today.

    – the two combined factors of Secrecy (the embargo on information) and the Blackball were far more important than the winning of the World War in securing to the Globalist Deep State owners of the US government the power they so crave; they could have lost the War and it would not have mattered as much as gaining world domination through the auspices of the Manhattan Project.

    – the dumbing down of the citizens began about this time; group-think was in, free-think was out.

    – the greatest secret of all to come from the Manhattan Project is that the technical ability to invent the A-bomb may have been the LEAST important of the accomplishments of the Manhattan Project for the Globalist Deep State

    – the monopoly of having the first and only A-bombs (for a time) brought a new giddiness and exhilaration, but also a new awareness and new realization; the realization was that if the Globalist Deep State (US) were to survive into the foreseeable future, it would have to rule the world; there could be no half effort at world dominance; this would require a means and method to promote and control this; the ‘future’ CIA would become the US agency created to do that;

    – the beginnings of “big science”

    – the beginnings of government-monopoly health/physics: monitoring, disclosure, treatment, and control changed

    – the formalization of security clearances and information classifications

    – the implementation of the concept of compartmentalization and “need to know”

    – the formal embargoing, monopolization, and weaponization of information

    – the realization by government that with the creation of enough Fiat currency out of nothing but the stroke of a pen, the government could do almost anything it could imagine

    – the realization by government that hidden, black budgets could get more done than visible, transparent congressionally-approved appropriations could; that the way to govern going forward would be to keep everything secret and hidden not only from enemies but also from the electorate, congress and the courts;

    – the creation from nothing of numerous secret towns and cities that had not existed before

    – the lies, deception and crooked, illegal ‘deals’ that were made to accomplish the goal

    – the fact that \$2.3 billion in expenses and nearly one million workers working on one project could be effectively hidden from world view for three or more years was itself a major accomplishment in propaganda and deception – a great beginning for far bigger things to come in the future

    2) 1945-1952; Operation Paperclip; the acquisition of some of the world’s brightest minds from around the world for the benefit of US military programs: Space, rocketry, weapons, aeronautics, spying, espionage, etc; the Fort Hunt Treaty; Nazi General Gehlen, Bormann, Nazi Yellow cake; continuation of the Nazi SS Intelligence apparatus AFTER the War; both the German state, and the German Military surrendered at the end of the War – but the Nazi SS and the Nazi Party did NOT; the de facto ‘beginning’ of the CIA two years BEFORE it was to become the CIA

    3) 1945-1991; Cold War; numerous false flags used to create fear and hysteria to solidify CIA control over congress and the courts, and to feed cash to the Military-Industrial-Complex;

    3.1) 1947 Central Intelligence Agency (CIA) Officially Authorized; dissolved the OSS; incorporated the Nazi SS Intelligence Network and Operations;

    3.2) 1947 to present; Roswell and other UFO Incidents; The CIA got involved with information embargoing, control and non-disclosure to include psyops, propaganda, lies, etc. to further CIA ends.

    4) 1951 . . .; Area 51, NASA, China Lake, Vandenburg, TTR, Canaveral, Diego Garcia, Creech, Dugway, et al; the creation and establishment of numerous places around the world where secret scientific and technical work can be done safely and securely; MASSIVE black budget infrastructure projects hidden in plain sight; the growth of the CIA as a stand-alone agency-contractor-procurer-hirer of the secret government; lots of surveyors, concrete, rebar, blacktop, sewer lagoons; contracts with only PO boxes for contact and payment; roads and power-lines that lead to places that don’t exist; buses and airlines that YOU and I can’t ride; towns and man-camps with no names that aren’t on any maps; places where “CIA Research” is done: it may be an “Air Force Installation”, but the research being done is initiated by, directed by, paid for by, gleaned by, embargoed by, and later used by the CIA; Las Vegas becomes “Langley West” and the Strip becomes its cover;

    In collaboration with the US Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO), the CIA became sole arbiter of what information was available to the public; e.g. – the publicly-perceived laws-of-physics became 30-50 years BEHIND the real, KNOWN laws of physics known only to the US government and its secret agencies as administered by the CIA; no new thought, discovery, invention or technology was able to be disclosed or exploited unless the CIA determined it to have little or no value to the government; the lone inventor/thinker/discoveror was done; the CIA controlled all new information and applications of same; corporations, in order to secure government contracts, became de facto ‘arms’ or ‘agents’ of the CIA; thousands of patents per year of corporate invention and discovery became the norm; they willingly practiced first-right-of-refusal to the CIA of any new technology or discoveries generated within their corporate structure in exchange for government contracts and ‘preferred contractor’ status; scientific journals and other publishers became tools of the CIA willing to embargo information in exchange for controlled leaks of years-old ‘new’ information; how best to keep people “barefoot, pregnant and in the kitchen”: hoard all new scientific discoveries and technical information and only allow the publication of things that are so old they’re of little use or value on the open market when disclosed; secret government research labs run by the principles learned from the Manhattan Project allow all this;

    Young, bright minds are captured early; sent to Berkeley, USC, Stanford, MIT, etc. and given opportunities to soar – while being watched, and their creative output controlled and embargoed; the CIA got the best minds of the generation; a generation or more of the world’s brightest kids got sucked into working for the most secret, duplicitous, and evil employer around; they might think they’re working for Draper, EG&G or Teledyne, but in fact, they’re really working for the Globalist Deep State via the CIA; the ‘black’ budget became the ‘real’ budget; ‘conspiracy theories’ were only ‘theories’ to those who were not in the loop; Bernays was “the man”;

    The CIA torched the Library at Alexandria and canceled the Age of Enlightenment; the Gutenberg Press was moved to Langley – ‘six’ floors below street level; intellectual regression to pre-Renaissance-era levels was inculcated world-wide;

    5) 1962-2012; Three Kennedy Assassinations: actions done to insure the CIA’s future existence

    6) 1960-1979; Viet Nam War; more tests of EVERYTHING! solidification of Deep State power; tests of Agent Orange and others for future land poisoning elsewhere; just another “outdoor research lab” for tests of lots of stuff; to provide cover and diversion for the K129 Recovery

    7) 1969-1979; Faked Moon Landings: to provide cover and diversion for the K129 Recovery; “under which shell is the pea . . .”; and to complete the change-over in the public eye of NASA from being a military spy agency (as it had began), into the public ‘beneficent’ agency it now tries to appear to be; the perfection of simulation-and-modeling as a refined technique for psyops and propaganda; Laurel Canyon, Lookout Mountain and Hollywood film adjuncts and collaboration; the world becomes Kubrick’s ‘back lot’ procured by the CIA;

    8) 1968-1978; K129 Soviet Submarine Recovery “Project Azorian”: after recovering the Soviet K129 Submarine and the most critical secrets of the Soviet military war-making powers, protocols and policies in place at the time, the CIA succeeded in gaining sufficient technical mastery to cause the death of the USSR later; that was just the beginning of all the follow-on “mastery of the world” effects (but what a start!) Tell the biggest lie; tell it well; repeat it often. “We know enough about how your most secret critical systems work that we can keep your ICBMs from leaving the pad; we can disarm your H-bombs; we can keep your seeds from germinating; we can destroy your currency; we can poison your food and water; we can turn your farmland into wasteland for 24,000 years. Die voluntarily – or we will kill you”. (this is the same kind of thinking as that of Fermi and Oppenheimer when they formulated the plan in 1945 to poison the food of German citizens with finely ground radioactive fissile materials if the A-bomb did not ultimately work; THAT plan was ultimately rejected);

    The same message is given to ALL nations resulting in the US CIA gaining de facto supremacy and control over all nations from that time forward; (most have gotten the message, some few try to test the limits);

    This project became the precursor to Stuxnet, 20 years later;

    “Preemptive Nuclear First Strike” became the firmly embedded US war-waging doctrine for all future policy;

    9) 1991; USSR Dies: due to Soviet emasculation from the K129 Recovery actionable intelligence trove; proof of the value of K129 Recovery Effort; Russia is thrown a life-ring; CIA writes the script and controls the narrative for Globalist Deep State World Domination from then on; from time to time Russia and China play like they are going to start a war with the US; the US responds with measured strength and nips their heels but the events are solved with no nuclear war anywhere in the world; champagne toasts are exchanged; a few lives may be lost on both sides but that price is small to pay for some semblance of quasi-world stability; the MIC of most nations get to play their games and life goes on, the rich get richer, the powerful get more powerful, the weak and poor get weaker and poorer; the Globalist Deep State further coalesces its world domination; but for so long as the CIA makes the rules and calls the game, Nuclear Winter is prevented; Putin was given a role and he seems to be playing it as scripted;

    10) 2000; Y2K; false flag test of many components; perceived by those outside the loop to be a failure but was instead a grand success for the perpetrators; creation of “Five Eyes” further solidifies and enhances the Thesis presented here;

    11) 2001; 9/11: Mini-nuclear shaped-charges used effectively; resulting in the Iraq war; Patriot Acts, etc.; more tyranny, ad infinitum

    12) 2010; Stuxnet, et al : the CIA proved to all world powers that almost nothing can be safe, secure or hidden if the CIA wants to muck it up badly enough; “We are in charge!”

    13) Numerous Others . . .; Beirut, Bali, China, Afghanistan, etc.; planes crash, people disappear, Chinese pork and chicken supply problems; various pandemics, run drugs, launder money, ‘fix’ elections, manipulate markets, etc.; just daily dirty tricks – “keep the skill-set sharp”

    14) 2020; Covid Hoax and Lock-downs: dump Trump; test Universal Civilian Lock-down plan effectiveness; unjustly enrich pharmaceutical companies, control people totally with the jab, test the ease with which populations can be hoodwinked and controlled; etc.; dry run for the REAL event later as needed;

    15) 2021; Suez Canal Blockage: a couple clicks of a mouse from a console in Nevada shut down most world commerce in a minute; “Full Speed; Hard Right”; [“now we own it!”] one more strategic pawn in the world game of global dominance; just another test for use when really needed; next time may be a dozen ships and permanent blockage;

    * * *
    To Recap: It seems that since 1972 or so, the CIA has become quite proficient at the task they have set for themselves – to protect the US from nuclear attack on its soil by any other nation – and in so doing, by aggressive and offensive default, rule the world. The Manhattan Project, the K129 Recovery, and the Stuxnet Cyber-attack were key events in this 50 year exercise. Numerous others have played greater or lessor roles. So far, Nuclear War has NOT broken out on US soil. Can the CIA continue to prevent that?

    Has the CIA created some sort of “Peace in Our Time”? If so, at what price?

    All I’m attempting to suggest here is that like with the peeling of an onion, if one begins to peel back the visible layers, there seems always to be ‘just one more layer’. And even if one gets to what one may assume to be the ‘core’, even THAT may have more layers that need to be peeled to find the true center of the thing.

    The CIA has attempted to create a situation (like the onion) where it is largely removed from any cause-and-effect chain of plausibility. “Things just happen” – but no one seems to know who or what caused them.

    How near is the Globalist Deep State to achieving its long range goals?

    Is Nuclear Winter imminent – or forever abolished?

  15. A123 says:

    I have been skeptical about Marine Le Pen’s chances in the 2022 French elections. However, the current government’s inability to deal with violent migrants is opening the door: (1)

    Nearly nine in 10 French citizens say that both security and terrorism are key issues that will determine which candidate they vote for in next year’s presidential elections, a new opinion poll has revealed.

    The poll, released by the international polling and market research firm Institut français d’opinion public (Ifop), showed that 86 percent of the French population considers “security and the fight against terrorism as well as the fight against [crime]” as crucial issues for the 2022 elections, Le Journal du Dimanche reports.

    France saw a myriad of terrorist attacks between May 2020 and April 2021. In the months of September and October, alone, four people were wounded (two seriously) after a radical Islamic terrorist from Pakistan attacked them with a butcher knife outside of the old Charlie Hebdo headquarters; the history teacher Samuel Paty was beheaded by a Chechen Islamist migrant after showing caricatures of the Muslim prophet as a part a class on freedom of speech; three Christians were murdered in the Basilica of Notre-Dame in Nice by a Tunisian boat migrant; and a Greek orthodox priest was wounded seriously after being shot by an assailant.

    Last week, a female police officer in Rambouillet — a French commune of just 25,000 people — was stabbed to death by a Tunisian migrant in front of her own police station.

    The populist leader Marine Le Pen — who enjoys widespread support among police officers and the military for her hardline positions on crime and migration — undoubtedly see opportunity in the poll numbers. A survey published last month by the French cable channel BMFTV showed that 48 percent of those questioned about France’s 2022 presidential election said that Marine Le Pen’s victory was “probable”.

    Highly credible retired military officials are warning about a potential civil collapse: (2)

    [MORE]

    An “open letter to our political rulers” published on April 21 on the website of the conservative weekly Valeurs Actuelles and signed by more than 7,600 retired military personnel, including 26 generals and an admiral, 78 colonels or their navy equivalent and hundreds of officers from the Army, the Air Force, the Navy and the Gendarmerie, warns the French political class of the risk of a civil war if the government fails to take action.

    Unlike their active-duty colleagues, retired military personnel are no longer bound by the ban on making their opinions known publicly and can therefore express themselves more freely. That is why the list of signatories apparently does not include active duty officers, although Armed Forces Minister Florence Parly promised on Sunday that this would be checked and sanctions taken if it turns out that active duty soldiers are also among the signatories.

    However, more than the warning by members of the military, what seems to send a wave of panic through the government and the left is the reaction of Marine Le Pen, president of the Rassemblement National (National Rally, RN), who called on the signatories of the open letter to join her in her fight.

    There is an unprecedented swing against Open Borders Globalism inside of France. There is no external leader that can step in to help to prop up the French left. Merkel is retiring and her CDU successor Armin Laschet lacks international credibility.

    A year is a LONG time in politics. However, this is the first serious threat to Elite Left rule in Europe in a “core” country.

    ‘Working-Class People of Color Hate the Riots Left Cheers.’

    Maybe true — but the underlying assumption is idiotic.

    The implication is that ‘people of color’ — blacks, Hispanics, Arabs, the Multiple flavors of East and South Asians all share some quality beyond not being ‘white.’

    No, they don’t. One might as well assume that since none of them resemble raccoons, barn swallows, puff adders, and bluefin tuna are all alike.

    Worse, as long as we’re stuck in this ‘people of color’ versus whites paradigm, we’ll never get anywhere. Hispanics are tired of blacks. Asians loathe them. We could unite tomorrow and solve our black problem in five minutes.

    There’s the expression, ‘divide and conquer.’ The corollary would be ‘unite your opponents and lose.’ That’s what we practice now.

    @orchardist

    How near is the Globalist Deep State to achieving its long range goals?

    So near they can see & smell it. So far that it remains beyond their grasp.

    More accurately, it remains beyond their exclusive grasp. They’ve lost the ability to achieve their goals without sharing the spoils – seats at the table of great powers will have to be ceded to outsiders. It is no longer possible that the world will be run by the Globalist Deep State. The best they can hope for is that the world will be run by an amalgam of Deep States with slightly different MOs, interests and socio-economic-political characteristics. The resulting New World Order will be the sum vector of their internal and external power struggles and policy debates. Not what the CIA had in mind, but there it is.

    The wall faced by the “Globalist Deep State” is that they have lost control of the world’s wealth. The Chinese Deep State has “cornered the market” for produced goods (aka: wealth creation), and the Russian Deep State (as ever, punching far above their weight class) has all but “cornered the market” for energy distribution (aka: wealth distribution) on the World Island. Add in their respective abilities to defend their nations and their interests militarily, and it becomes clear that their respective Deep States’ interests cannot be denied out of hand. A naked lunge for global hegemony by a CIA/MIC-based Deep State will necessarily either fall short of the mark, or at best result in the most devastatingly Pyrrhic of victories.

    A decade or two ago, they all but had their goals in hand. Alas, as they went about “creating their own realities’, that train left the station. Their increasingly confused floundering about on the now empty platform is what we’ve been witnessing ever since. Unless they get their act together fast, they may even lose significant parts of their own heartland (USA & EU). Should that be allowed to happen, unable to bring the West’s resources under consolidated control, they’ll simply fizzle out. Or…

    Is Nuclear Winter imminent – or forever abolished?

    The question is unanswerable. We (or at least I) simply don’t know whether their “long range goals” have an All or Nothing clause attached, and to what extent the various parties to the agenda have committed themselves to it if there is such a clause. Doubtless, not all of them have but which will prevail is above my pay grade.

    The great question facing the Russian and Chinese Deep States is whether the CIA’s designs can be maneuvered into failing peacefully, if not gracefully. This decade will see that Either/Or play itself out. My read of the situation is it won’t take the whole decade.

    PS: I fully agree that the impact the early 20thC’s Technocracy movement underpinned the rise of the CIA. I think you may find interesting that the 1930’s Bolshevik Critical Race Theory proponents found in Columbia U. an equally hospitable home when Hitler threw them out of Frankfurt. Exploring their relationship, given the current socio-political situation in the US & EU may yield rewards.

    Once one commands world Cyberspace ‘totally’ (or as much of it as is needed to make it function like it is total), can one keep it forever? i.e. can dominance NOW lead to permanence?

    Can possession of dominance now be “cascaded” to insure dominance forever? – i.e. if one has it now, is it even thinkable that one would ever let go of it – ever?

    Can cascading successes and dominance’s [like the Manhattan Project; Project Azorian; Stuxnet, et al] be parleyed into perpetual possession and dominance forever – or for as long as we might understand “forever” to be?

    They may think so (as you seem to), but if they do they’d be as wrong as it’s possible to be.

    In the 1st place both Russia and China have their own domestic internet infrastructure and could isolate their IT sectors pretty effectively if/when push comes to shove. Iran is much more vulnerable, which is why it’s placing itself under their umbrella(s).

    More importantly, in the 2nd place both of their IT infrastructures sit on a robust civil infrastructure whereas the USA’s admittedly very sophisticated IT sits on a dilapidated, 100 yr old mess. EG: Taking the entire US power grid down instantly and permanently (or effectively so) is well within the capabilities of a small “sleeper” group.
    Where’s the CIA’s “technical mastery” when the lights go out?
    Where is it 3-4 wks later when the diesel runs out?
    Would the ensuing domestic chaos, incl 100 nuclear reactors melting down overwhelm even the tight-bunned ladies in Nevada?
    Would the remaining 4-eyes (CA, UK, AU & NZ) take up the CIA’s banner knowing what happened to their big brother? Even if they did, the fact that they’d be playing with half of a suddenly very vulnerable deck wouldn’t be lost on them.
    Would the Euro-weenies allow the CIA to play their games from their soil? Or would they recognize the new realities and deport every operative they could find?

    This and other such considerations is why the US’ blustery threats are being shrugged off by their rivals.

She said there wouldn’t be any trouble until sundown, and five o’ clock would do. I went along with her when she came back. She was inconceivably cynical and flippant about the whole thing; said a row would be a very good thing for the Zionist cause, arouse world Jews and increase contributions to the new Agency.

    Hamas has killed more Palestinians than the IDF in recent days. (1)

    Asked specifically about three children killed in an incident in Bein Hanoun, in the northern Gaza Strip, IDF Spokesperson Hidai Zilberman told Israel’s Army Radio on Tuesday that a number of those killed in Gaza were hit by errant rockets fired by Palestinian terrorists, not by Israeli airstrikes.

    “We know that one third of the rockets fired from the Gaza Strip did not reach Israel and fell inside Gaza,” Zilberman said. “What we can learn from this is that many Gaza residents who were injured or killed were not hit by Israeli airstrikes but the civilians were hit by rockets from the terrorist groups themselves.”

    At the same time, the IDF pointed out that Hamas and Islamic Jihad have purposefully embedded themselves within the civilian population. “They are using their civilians, the Palestinians, their homes, schools, hospitals, and mosques in Gaza as human shields and are making it virtually impossible for us to strike only those involved in military activity,” said IDF Lieutenant Colonel Jonathan Conricus on Tuesday.

    Israel continues to take great pains to minimize civilian casualties. But it is impossible to prevent them entirely in a conflict like this, particularly as Hamas also utilizes the cynical practice of firing from behind human shields,” he added.

    As Tel Aviv came under fire on Tuesday evening from a barrage of rockets launched from Gaza, the Israeli army sent a message to Gaza citizens: “The IDF is striking Hamas weapons stores hidden inside civilian buildings in Gaza. Although Hamas wants to put you in harm’s way, we urge you to stay away from Hamas’ weapons sites and get to safety. Our goal is only to strike terror.”

    When will the ICC prosecute Iranian al’Hamas for War Crimes? Use of civilians as Human Shields certainly qualifies.

    The whole thing really is an indictment of Zionists, if not necessarily Jewish culture in general.

    Taking Israel to stand for the whole, the Jews have to be the worst rulers of all time.

    On the one hand, they seem to be incapable of reconciling their subjects to their new status — ala Spaniards with Indians in the New World, for example, or the British in India. On the other hand, they don’t seem able to simply crush all thought of resistance with unadulterated terror ala the Mongols.

    No — they don’t reconcile their untermenschen-to-be to their fate. Nor do they manage to intimidate them. They just endlessly harass, humiliate, dispossess, abuse, and simply enrage their victims.

    …and they wonder why resistance continues. What else is supposed to happen? The Palestinians have no choice. The Jews refuse to give them one.

    There are just too many statements from Zionism’s twentieth century magnates to ignore, from Begin to Weizmann to Ben Gurion — not a one of them religious in the traditional sense, yet appealing to a Scriptural rationale nevertheless. Thing is, westerners — and particularly Americans — are very naive when it comes to understanding this. Zionists labor to exploit this naivete. It’s how they convince so many that a negative word about Israel is identical to marching Jews off to the death camps.

They are victims of Islamic organizations… Fatah, Hamas, PLO, etc. Rational negotiation would yield fair compensation and a good place to go. Many Muslim parents would take their children and leave to avoid another generation of failure.

    Islamic terrorists stole the pipes and concrete needed to sustainably use the Gaza aquifer. It has now been destroyed by Muslims, and it is irreplaceable. Desalinization is a pipe dream. The Islamic colony in Gaza cannot build it, cannot operate it, and cannot afford it. 1.5-2.0MM occupiers will have to depart Gaza within a decade or two. Muslim decolonization is inevitable.

  50. So, anyways …

    I’ve been doing some research into the Sheikh Jarrah issue. Found a nice paper authored by Avocats Sans Frontières (Lawyers Without Borders), essentially affirming what most legal experts already knew: Israel’s occupation of East Jerusalem is illegal and, as the occupying power, it has no authority to affect transfer of its own population to it, making its determination of land ownership therein null and void. Pretty boilerplate.

    I read once more about the double-standard practiced by Israel’s courts, one that allows Jews to claim property they had owned prior to 1948 while denying Palestinians the same. There’s a story from 2009 about a Palestinian family who was able to procure vital documents from the Turkish government which proved that the title deeds upon which Jewish organizations have relied to prove ownership of the Shaikh Jarrah properties are — brace yourselves now! — fraudulent. (The court, of course, didn’t admit those documents, though ASF noted their glib dismissal.)

    Jonathan Cook’s coverage of the same story included one particular detail that elicited a chuckle, however dark the humor:

    Late last year the Associated Press news agency exposed a scam by settlers regarding land on which they have built the Migron outpost, near Ramallah, home to more than 40 Jewish families. The settlers’ documents were supposedly signed by the Palestinian owner, Abdel Latif Sumarin, in California in 2004, even though he died in 1961.

    Part of all interceptor systems is threat analysis. Iranian al’Hamas munitions are of such low quality the system can intentionally ignore the 80%+ of rockets headed to empty desert.

    The message in the letter is clear: human rights and international law should not even be considered in allocating U.S. military aid.

    I remember participating in a street march on a well known American campus back in ’91, protesting the first Gulf War. Quite a crowd. We brought downtown traffic to a standstill. Near the tail end, its momentum dying, I happened to catch the spontaneous rant of a young firebrand railing against numerous indignities, among which he happened to itemize Christian and Muslim fundamentalism. It hadn’t dawned on me at the time, but after a reflective spell, when I had become more conscious of the Jewish presence in my environs, I realized just how many had joined us at that rally, and the feisty young advocate’s omission stood out in stark relief against the stagecraft to which I’d grown accustomed since birth.

    Sometimes it’s what you don’t hear that makes all the difference.

    Muslim “friendly fire” in Gaza has become so destructive that even known pro-terrorist collaborators like Defense for Children International – Palestine [DCIP] are admitting the truth about Muslim civilians killed by Hamas negligence & incompetence: (1)

    what DCI-P admits next is amazing:

    In a second incident around 6:05 p.m., initial investigations suggest a homemade rocket fired by a Palestinian armed group fell short and killed eight Palestinians, including two children. The rocket landed in Saleh Dardouna Street near Al-Omari Mosque in Jabalia, North Gaza, according to evidence collected by DCIP. Mustafa Mohammad Mahmoud Obaid, 16, was killed in the blast, and five-year-old Baraa Wisam Ahmad al-Gharabli succumbed to his injuries around 11 p.m. on May 10.

    Palestinian security sources and explosives experts indicated the cause of this explosion was a Palestinian armed group rocket that fell short. Another 34 Palestinian civilians were injured in the blast, including 10 children, according to DCIP’s documentation.

    Eight killed and 34 injured from one Hamas rocket.

    And then:

    Six Palestinian children and two adults were killed in a third blast that occurred around 6 p.m. in Beit Hanoun about 800 meters (2,600 feet) west of the Gaza Strip perimeter fence. Those killed included Rahaf Mohammad Attalla al-Masri, 10, and her cousin Yazan Sultan Mohammad al-Masri, 2; brothers Marwan Yousef Attalla al-Masri, 6, and Ibrahim Yousef Attalla al-Masri, 11; as well as Hussein Muneer Hussein Hamad, 11, and 16-year-old Ibrahim Abdullah Mohammad Hassanain, according to information collected by DCIP. When the blast occurred, members of the al-Masri family were reportedly harvesting wheat in the field outside their home, and their children were playing nearby, according to information collected by DCIP.

    DCIP has not yet confirmed the cause of these deaths. At the time of the incident, Israeli drones and warplanes were reportedly overhead and Palestinian armed groups were firing homemade rockets towards Israel. DCIP continues to investigate these incidents to determine and identify the responsible parties.

    The deaths of the al-Masri family was already confirmed by Israel on Tuesday as being from Hamas rockets. There was clearly no military target and Israel doesn’t randomly target a family – Israel diverts rockets when it sees children in the area, and they were outside.

    Watching “Muslim leaders” kill Muslim children is a tragedy, but there is little anyone on the outside can do. When will parents get rid of the so-called “Muslim leaders” who are killing their children?

  63. On the US “Nuclear Preemptive First Strike Capability” Doctrine

    One does not make a cherry pie unless one intends for it to be EATEN. So too, one does not design, build and test a new nuclear weapon unless it is intended to be USED.

    “Ultimate use” was the prime motivator for nuclear weapon designers, test group directors, and AEC officials. “Ultimate use” is why Congress appropriated the funds for new nuclear weapons development. “Ultimate use” is why the Pentagon plays war games.

    The activities engaged in by the US Nuclear Weapons Testing Industry for 47 years (1945-1992) was NOT frivolous or willy-nilly – those involved had purposeful intent and patriotic will. They BELIEVED that the activities in which they were engaged was purposeful and had high moral value.

    “Nuclear Preemptive First Strike Capability” was ALWAYS paramount and the highest goal in all this activity. “Absolute reliability” i.e. – will a device detonate when required to under all conceivable conditions? – was the optimum objective – the holy grail. Anything less was unacceptable. “How the hell do we know if the damn thing is going to WORK”! Test, Test, Test!

    To believe differently is incongruous.

    Perhaps something of interest to Ron Unz personally — apparently Hans-Georg Maaßen linked to an Unz Review article (not sure which one) on his Twitter timeline, which caused a minor shitstorm in DE when Luisa Neubauer, a young woman prominently involved in the ‘Fridays for Future’ movement inspired by Greta Thunberg, (more or less) called Maaßen an anti-Semite for linking to the UR:

    PI-News — „Antisemitismus“ als politischer Totschläger

    Drei Tage hat es gedauert, bis die notorische Flugsünderin Luisa Neubauer von ihren zahlreichen Hinterleuten soweit geschult war, um den Versuch zu unternehmen, ihren Antisemitismus-Vorwurf gegen den CDU-Bundestagskandidaten Hans-Georg Maaßen inhaltlich zu belegen. Was allerdings dabei herauskam, war so jämmerlich wie der Vorwurf infam war. … Dass Maaßen angeblich über seinen Twitter-Account mit einer rechtsoppositionellen amerikanischen Internet-Plattform namens „The Unz Review“ verlinkt ist oder war, sagt so wenig über den Grund dieser Verlinkung aus wie Fräulein Neubauers höchstwahrscheinliche Verlinkung mit allerlei linken und linksextremen Plattformen. Und mit der Behauptung, beim Plattformgründer Ron Unz handele es sich um einen Antisemiten und Holocaust-Leugner sollte sie schon deshalb sehr vorsichtig sein, weil Unz selbst Jude ist.

    Run the text thru an online translator; these normally do a pretty good job.

    I did not see exactly what Neubauer said (about Maaßen), but here it is claimed she specifically called Ron Unz an anti-Semite and ‘Holocaust denier’: “Und mit der Behauptung, beim Plattformgründer Ron Unz handele es sich um einen Antisemiten und Holocaust-Leugner …” — the UR is described as right wing/populist (“rechtsoppositionellen”).

    Maaßen is no minor figure: from 2012 until late 2018 he was head of the Verfassungsschutz, which is a kind of political police in DE nominally charged with protecting the German Constitution (Verfassung or Grundgesetz) — but via a major shitstorm he was forced out after disputing that migrants were violently targeted after a German was stabbed to death (by a migrant) in the city of Chemnitz in 2018 — Maaßen was widely smeared at the time as the German political and media establishment moralized about the Hetzjagd (which never happened) — he recently announced that as a member of the CDU he will run for a seat in the Bundestag (link).

    We have entered a new era in the Palestinian-Israeli conflict. The old days of Israel committing war crimes against the downtrodden, captive Palestinians are over. The world has done zero to address Israel’s fundamental crime of nation-stealing: a megalith crime that can only be described as the longest and most vicious war crime in our modern history. A crime that millions of people around the world consider to be even worse than the holocaust. After some 73 years of enduring relentless Israeli terrorism, land-theft, cultural appropriation AND the silence of the world, the Palestinian Resistance has finally taken charge and has, literally overnight, turned the tables against Israel. From here on, there will be accountability for Israel for any crime it commits against the Palestinians. From here on, all previous Israeli red lines will be crossed in favor of the Palestinians. From here on, the death of Israel is no longer a far-fetched fantasy. From here on, the Palestinian Resistance will take charge of Palestine’s destiny. And its destiny is total liberation.

After all, Armenians, to take an example, most certainly have their idiosyncrasies, but in general, we can live with them. Armenians aren’t going to make us declare war on Turkey, nor are they going to enforce a 9:00 pm curfew for all unmarried women under forty. They can keep on being Armenians, and the rest of us can adjust a bit, and we’ll all get by.

    Everything you write is spot on, of course. Just one small thing:

    1948 was already well into the era of the modern nation state when the state of Israel and its borders were recognized.

    Israel’s borders have never been legally determined. Back in 1947, when the U.N. advanced its ridiculous partition plan, that plan was not recognized by those representing Palestinian interests, so it was never ratified by the U.N. Security Council, giving it no force of law. The U.N. then organized a special committee to resolve the inequities of the plan, but before those could be worked out, Israel waged a war of aggression against Palestinians (resulting in the naqba), the British Mandate ended, and Israel declared statehood unilaterally, whereupon Arab armies then entered the fray.

    Israel doesn’t have borders. It has a front line that’s constantly advancing into Palestinian land, one which — they hope — will extend to the Nile in the east and Euphrates in the west, incorporating the Arabian Peninsula. They do dream big, after all.

    But yes, the vast majority of nations have set aside this kind of manifest destiny ambition. It simply doesn’t factor into their politics.

    On the other hand, the U.N. Partition Plan — and Israel’s acceptance of it — constitutes Israel’s sole legal claim to a right to exist, so if that right is to be respected, surely it’s reasonable to insist Israel abide by its terms.

    Palestinian Jews have a sovereign claim on Jewish Palestinian land stretching back thousands of years. Palestinian Christians have an overlapping claim on part of this land (Golgatha, Gethsemane, etc.), which is an issue for the two indigenous Palestinian faiths to work out with each other.

    Not only is the UN unnecessary, it is actually a destructive force. The General Assembly and various agencies are populated by Elite bureaucrats. A class guaranteed to exacerbate any situation when they get involved. Setting aside the UNSC:

    When has the UN actually made things better? Its hard to think of any example.

    When has the UN made them worse? Its agencies empower Non Governmental Organizations [NGO] to traipse about, instigating political upheaval.

    ‘As Israeli journalists probed the IDF public affairs staff, they discovered the elaborate hoax and its purpose. For some strange reason, the army believed Hamas commanders read the NY Times and make operational decisions based on its headlines. The IDF had planned, according to this report., to lure Palestinian militants into a trap which would bring hundreds of their fighters into the group’s elaborate underground defensive system, whereupon the IAF would bomb the tunnel network, burying the fighters alive. But Maariv reports today the ruse failed. Hamas did not bite, and its fighters lived to fight another day.

    ‘IDF sources told Maariv the plan had been carefully orchestrated over three years and the army had set great hopes for it. It claimed that the only reason it failed was that it hadn’t allowed enough time to convince Hamas to fall into the trap…’

    Statement: AP ‘horrified’ by Israeli attack on its office

    NEW YORK (AP) — An Israeli airstrike destroyed a high-rise building in Gaza City that housed offices of The Associated Press and other media outlets on Saturday. All AP employees and freelancers evacuated the building safely.

    AP President and CEO Gary Pruitt has released the following statement:

    We are shocked and horrified that the Israeli military would target and destroy the building housing AP’s bureau and other news organizations in Gaza. They have long known the location of our bureau and knew journalists were there. We received a warning that the building would be hit.

    The Israeli government says the building contained Hamas military intelligence assets. We have called on the Israeli government to put forward the evidence. AP’s bureau has been in this building for 15 years. We have had no indication Hamas was in the building or active in the building. This is something we actively check to the best of our ability. We would never knowingly put our journalists at risk.

    We are seeking information from the Israeli government and are engaged with the U.S. State Department to try to learn more.

    This is an incredibly disturbing development. We narrowly avoided a terrible loss of life. A dozen AP journalists and freelancers were inside the building and thankfully we were able to evacuate them in time.

    The world will know less about what is happening in Gaza because of what happened today.

    Usually, they target Arab or Muslim journalists or TV stations (much easier to get away with).

    This one is going to hurt Israel badly.

    It appears that an elegant act of deception by the Israeli Defense Forces may have led to the slaughter of hundreds of Hamas terrorists, all without a single civilian caught in the crossfire.

    On Friday, IDF issued a tweet through their English language social media channels that “air and ground troops are currently attacking in the Gaza Strip.” Predictably, establishment media outlets gobbled up the news as the latest evidence of an Israeli invasion of Palestine.

    In response to the supposed invasion, hundreds of Hamas fighters who had previously been hiding among the civilian Palestinian population fled into the terror group’s extensive tunnel network to prepare for a bloody final battle with Israeli forces, according to The Jerusalem Post.

    The invasion never came, however.

    Instead, as the confused Hamas fighters came out of the tunnels, 160 Israeli aircraft flew overhead and rained fire and fury upon the terrorists.

    The Jerusalem Post reported the attack struck 150 targets including anti-tank and mortar teams. The IDF verified the claim on Twitter with impressive footage of the assault.

    Hamas suffered a crushing defeat once they no longer were able to hide behind human shields.

    No one will believe attempts to spin an obvious IDF victory into anything else.

    PEACE 😇

    What’s interesting about the success of the ruse, was that the IDF did the exact same thing in 2008, just in reverse. IDF commanders said they weren’t allowed to attack, so the Palestinian police went ahead with their graduation parade, and 200 Palestinian fighters were killed in a surprise attack. This attack seems to have buried dozens of Hamas fighters in their tunnels, and more importantly, it destroyed those tunnels as useful hideouts. So far, about half of Hamas regular forces are out of operation.

    Hamas has very poor intelligence on Israel and relies heavily on media reports, as it has no choice. Now you can’t do this kind of ruse too often. You have to skip a war or two.

    Although it would be amusing if Hamas fell for it again in the very next round 🙂

    The problem is locating and identifying Hans fighters, who hide among the civilian population and in tunnels.

    1– author Sara Yeel Hirschhorn, who appeared o,n BBC. Asked about the recent reports from Carnegie and Human Rights Watch calling for equal rights for all people in the landHirschhorn said that the violence we are seeing today shows that while equality may be ideal, “the kind of violence that may be necessary to create a different paradigm” from the two-state paradigm is “truly staggering,” and “it may not be the right time for that.”

    Last night Hirschhorn rationalized Israel’s privileging of Jews from the country’s new critics in the House of Representatives:

    —–I have no problem with Ilhan Omar calling #Israel as #ethnonationalist #state, I just wonder if she can find me any nation-state on the face of the planet that IS NOT an ethnonationalist state.

    The Israel lobby is plainly on the defensive over the images of disproportionate destruction/killing. Michael Oren attacked the New York Times for purveying a “total Hamas narrative.”

    Gil Troy joins in: “You would think from the article that Israel is expelling hundreds of Palestinians in Sheikh Jarrah. The Western media’s complicity is not naive — it’s diabolical.”

    But: hundreds of Palestinians have been evicted from East Jerusalem neighborhoods, and Palestinians regard this as part of a very long tradition of ethnic cleansing.

    Longtime Israel supporter Bari Weiss has a piece at Substack that is very valuable inasmuch as it offers a naked justification of the slaughter of innocents, as the price of Zionism/Jewish self-determination:

    —-it appears that more than 50 Palestinians have been killed. Some of these people are entirely innocent non-combatants, including children. This is an unspeakable tragedy. It is also one of the unavoidable burdens of political power, of Zionism’s dream turned into the reality of self-
    determination.

    • Or, the children killed by Hamas “friendly fire”?

    Even strident anti-Israel groups, such as Defense for Children International – Palestine [DCIP] are forced to admit that tragic Muslim friendly fire incidents are taking place: (1)

    a homemade rocket fired by a Palestinian armed group fell short and killed eight Palestinians, including two children. The rocket landed in Saleh Dardouna Street near Al-Omari Mosque in Jabalia, North Gaza, according to evidence collected by DCIP. Mustafa Mohammad Mahmoud Obaid, 16, was killed in the blast, and five-year-old Baraa Wisam Ahmad al-Gharabli succumbed to his injuries around 11 p.m. on May 10.

    Palestinian security sources and explosives experts indicated the cause of this explosion was a Palestinian armed group rocket that fell short. Another 34 Palestinian civilians were injured in the blast, including 10 children, according to DCIP’s documentation.

    The IDF captured a particularly inept Hamas ” friendly fire” failure (below).

    Muslim Elites leading the Occupation of Judea & Samaria don’t want peace. They want to keep personal power. Pushing false aspirations for a judenfrei land from the River to the Sea is futile and doomed to fail. However, it does sound like German propaganda from the 1930’s.

    Also, Iranian Hamas has chewed up over 20% of its available rocket supply, either fired or destroyed in storage. At last count, they have managed to killed 10 Israelis, all unarmed civilians. The total ineffectiveness of the Hamas offensive is obvious for all to see.

    Has the Hamas provocation weaked Israeli resolve? No.

  113. https://www.wsj.com/articles/almost-nothing-youve-heard-about-evictions-in-jerusalem-is-true-11621019410

    In the case now before Israel’s Supreme Court, the owner is an Israeli corporation with Jewish owners whose chain of title is documented back to an original purchase in 1875. Until 1948, the neighborhood now known as Sheikh Jarrah was home to both Jewish and Arab communities. Jordan invaded Israel in 1948 and occupied half of Jerusalem, expelling every one of its Jewish inhabitants and seizing their property.

    The plaintiff and its predecessors in title have spent four decades in court seeking to recover possession of the properties. In every case, courts have ruled in favor of the owners. In the latest lawsuits, the courts ruled that four of the eight defendants were squatters with no legal rights in the land, and the remaining four were descendants of tenants who had never paid rent.
    Nevertheless, Israeli courts have treated the Palestinian squatters and leaseholders alike as “protected tenants,” and would shield them from eviction indefinitely if they paid rent. They have refused to do so.
    The laws involved are the same as any landlord would invoke. There is only one objection in this case: the owners are Jews. Western progressives have elevated the desire of some Arabs not to have Jewish neighbors into a human right and a legal entitlement that even the Jewish state must protect.

    The real story behind Sheikh Jarrah is a microcosm of the conflict: Israel is condemned for policies that are entirely unremarkable, while discrimination against Jews is proclaimed to be a rule of international law.

    When Israel reunited Jerusalem and ended the Jordanian occupation in 1967, it had to decide what to do with these properties. In the many cases in which Jordan had officially transferred the title of Jewish-owned properties to Palestinians, Israel respected the new titles—and still does—even though they are based on forcible takings in a war of aggression followed by ethnic cleansing against Jews. Where title had never been transferred, however, Israel returned properties to their owners. Critics of Israel claim that Arabs can’t recover property under the same law, but the law is entirely neutral—it is simply the case that Jordan took property from Jews, not Palestinians.

    Title to the properties in dispute in Sheikh Jarrah was never given by Jordan to Palestinians, so Israeli law respects the unbroken title of the plaintiffs. This case has nothing to do with ethnicity or religion. The only discrimination in the legal treatment of Sheikh Jarrah property is historic, by Jordan, and against Jews to the benefit of Palestinians.

    This systemic religious discrimination via why state laws about public education are so important. Fraudsters need “useful idiots” to propagate their criminal activity. And, infiltrating schools is an attractive scheme to spread anti-Semitic propaganda.

    While Florida is not the first state to act, the recent passage of

    HB 741 also bans [public schools from] “applying a double standard to Israel by requiring behavior of Israel that is not expected or demanded of any other democratic nation, or focusing peace or human rights investigations only on Israel.”

    Public Universities are covered by this law. In the Southern U.S., they enroll the bulk of the student population. To illustrate the point — In Florida, what are the largest public & private universities?

        • [Public] #1 — University of Central Florida ~70,000
        • [Public] #4 — University of Florida ~50,000

        • {Private} #12 — Nova SouthEastern University (∆) ~20,000
        • {Private} #17 — University of Miami ~15,000

    The hope for PEACE scored a huge win when the Florida GOP enacted HB741 into law.

    This entire tag team are bankrupt of facts and truths but continue to support each others false claims. In their pretend fantasy world. It is sort of funny. Talha quit because he ran out of myths regarding the Muslim/ Jew conflict.

    The most dispelled myth presented by this group is that Palestinians are a distinct tribe of people that resided in Palestine as the original descendants from Cannon, prior to the creation of Israel. You can show them passports from 1927 of Jews with Palestinian passports, to know avail.

    Palestine is a physical place that does not represent a people. Palestinians called themselves Arabs not a separate people until 1967. Palestine was considered part of Syria. These are documented facts. Yet they continue on with the phony Palestinian cause. 90 % of the Palestinians can be traced back to Arabs living in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq etc. You can track tribal genealogy by their last names, yet the cling to this false narrative of Palestinians as being the original Cannonites. Historical truth means nothing to these Jew haters. One size fits all.

    https://jcpa.org/article/who-are-the-palestinians/

    MYTH
    “The Palestinians are descendants of the Canaanites and were in Palestine long before the Jews.”
    FACT
    Palestinian claims to be related to the Canaanites are a recent phenomenon and contrary to historical evidence. The Canaanites disappeared from the face of the earth three millennia ago, and no one knows if any of their descendants survived or, if they did, who they would be.
    Sherif Hussein, the guardian of the Islamic Holy Places in Arabia, said the Palestinians’ ancestors had only been in the area for 1,000 years.9 Even the Palestinians themselves have acknowledged their association with the region came long after the Jews. In testimony before the Anglo-American Committee in 1946, for example, they claimed a connection to Palestine of more than 1,000 years, dating back no further than the conquest of Muhammad’s followers in the 7th century.10 And that claim is also dubious. Over the last 2,000 years, there have been massive invasions that killed off most of the local people (e.g., the Crusades), migrations, the plague, and other manmade or natural disasters. The entire local population was replaced many times over. During the British mandate alone, more than 100,000 Arabs emigrated from neighboring countries and are today considered Palestinians.

  126. You cannot make up how stupid the propaganda exist on UR day after day the same BS.

    https://jcpa.org/article/who-are-the-palestinians/

    Yet again, Palestinian leaders are claiming that the Palestinians are descended from the Canaanite people who lived in the land of Canaan before the Israelite tribes settled in it. No less than the Chairman of the Palestinian Authority, Mahmoud Abbas, made that claim in Germany; no one was taken aback by his remarks or questioned him.1

    Chief Palestinian negotiator Saeb Erekat frequently makes the assertion,2 and during an international forum, he insultingly sniped at senior Israeli politician Tzipi Livni that his origins lay with the Canaanites of Jericho who were wiped out by the Israelites, alluding to “war crimes” of Joshua ben Nun.3 Again, none of the senior international officials who were present made any effort to ask questions, raise doubts, or come to the defense of the abashed Israeli representative.

    Ironically, a strong dissenting view to this thesis that the Palestinians can be traced back to the Canaanites comes from Hamas. On March 23, 2012, the Hamas Minister of the Interior and National Security, Fathi Hammad, linked the Palestinians’ origins to Egypt and the Arabian Peninsula:

    Who are the Palestinians? We have many families called al-Masri, whose roots are Egyptian! They may be from Alexandria, from Cairo, from Dumietta, from the north, from Aswan, from Upper Egypt. We are Egyptians; we are Arabs. We are Muslims. We are part of you. Egyptians! Personally, half my family is Egyptian – and the other half are Saudis.4

    The Palestinians’ Canaanite narrative is not new. It emerged after the fall of the Hashemite monarchy in Syria in 1920, Syria’s incorporation into the French Mandate, and King Faisal’s flight to Iraq so that he could assume the throne there in 1921. Yasser Arafat claimed that the Palestinians are descendants of the Jebusites, whom he describes as a Canaanite tribe.5 In short, this argument has been around for a while.

    Of course you keep ignoring the most critical point. The situation is about religion, not ethnicity.

    It is 100% objectively proven fact that Palestine is not holy to Muslims. Muhammad led his Colonial Settlers to the region ~1,400 years ago. Why do Muslims insist on stealing and occupying Infidel (Christian & Jewish) lands.

    It is 100% objectively proven fact that al’Aqsa is in the wrong place. The story requires an existing mosque on a hill before Muhammad passed. His Colonial Settlers had not invaded Jerusalem by then. There was no existing mosque on the Temple Mount or any other hill in the city. al’Aqsa needs to be moved to a historically accurate location.

    Peace is straightforward. Relocate the non-indigenous religion and its structures to Muslim lands. There is plenty of money available if safeguards guarantee it will not be siphoned off to corruption or violence. A New Muslim Palestine that does not have a border with authentic Jewish Palestine would resolve many of the problems. A Protectorate run by a reliable 3rd Party, such as an Egyptian Military Governor, would also be helpful.

    …or hey. As far as Muslims are concerned, the Quran is actually what God gave to Abraham — just uncorrupted by the hands of man over time. They’re the real Jews! They should get it!

    So everyone should have Palestine. How about just letting the Palestinians have it?

    You, as a Jew in America by way of Eastern Europe have no more right to Palestine than Talha, as a Muslim in America by way of Pakistan has a right to it. The Palestinians do have a right to it. They were living there.

    That is what we are fighting for. We do not recognize the Muslims as the real Jews. We Jews are the real Jews. That is what wars are for. The Muslims have coopted the Tomb of the Patriarchs where Sarah Issac, Jacob, and Abraham are buried. The land for the tombs were purchased by Abraham, it is the first land transaction listed in the bible and gives detailed account of the transaction. The Muslims took it over and you guessed it and built a mosque over it and refused to let the Jews pay there. It is in Hebron. The Jews have repopulated Hebron and taken back the tomb.
    We Jews do not recognize the Islamic appropriation of our holy sites, we want them back. We are willing to fight for it.

    We accepted it Colin. The Muslims rejected it and went to war. They lost we won. Wars have consequences. The Muslims never accepted a Jewish state and swore to the destruction of the Jewish state and they were going to push the Jews into the sea. I think if someone said that to you, you would get as much space between them and you as possible. Originally Trans Jordan was part of the Jewish mandate. So we were left with half of the half of the loaf.

    The amount of Jihadi Colonial effort going into public pleas for a ceasefire is a sign of significant weakness. For example: (1)

    Mousa Abu Marzouk, the deputy head of the political bureau of the Palestinian movement Hamas, told the Lebanon-based Al-Mayadeen TV channel that he believes “the ceasefire efforts currently underway will succeed”.

    “I expect a ceasefire within a day or two,” he said, without providing further details.

    Another Hamas official on Wednesday predicted an “imminent” ceasefire thanks to mediation efforts by Egypt and Qatar currently underway.

    I added the Wikipedia article on Abba Eban (Aubrey Evans when a British army officer). I think my ancient memory of him was correct and that there was no way he would have countenanced the murder of JFK by Mossad. He was Deputy PM to Levi Eshkol for the 5 months after Ben Gurion resigned before the murder. So it would have to be assumed that Ben Gurion set it going with Shamir before he resigned and Eban in particular was kept in the dark.

    From that it follows that it would be worth following up at least two possible Eban related lines. One presumes he was compromised shortly after the murder by enough information to require him to make a choice and accept that his only realistic choice was to be part of the defence team rather than be ridiculed and ostracised. The other guesses that he would have picked up clues to the truth in the long run – and his was a long run near the top – and that a really diligent search of everything to do with him would throw up clues.

    Whatever its other flaws, Islam is decidedly the most tolerant of the three Abrahamic religions. Both Christianity’s and Judaism’s records are wretched in this regard.

    ‘Democrats then blocked the bill, and on party lines, by a vote of 217 to 209. Tragic. Tragic that the Democratic majority is moving against Israel and in favor of Iranian-backed terrorists. Tragic that there isn’t total bipartisan support for backing Israel, the only true democracy in the Middle East. And certainly America’s greatest ally in that region…’

  164. Israel Destroys Gaza’s Only Library as Biden ‘Threatens’ Reporter Who Asks About Gaza

    Biden continues his shameful betrayal of any moral stance on the Gaza slaughter. He flew to Detroit to get behind the wheel of a massive Ford F-150 electric truck. But before he was able to step on the accelerator, he was met at the airport by two members of Congress, Rashida Tlaib and Debby Dingel, who each have major Arab constituencies. They weren’t happy. An aide recounted in more refined language what Tlaib must’ve told the president:

    “Palestinian human rights are not a bargaining chip and must be protected, not negotiated,” the aide said Tlaib expressed to Biden. “The U.S. cannot continue to give the right-wing [Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin] Netanyahu government billions each year to commit crimes against Palestinians. Atrocities like bombing schools cannot be tolerated, much less conducted with U.S.-supplied weapons.”

    “Congresswoman Tlaib reiterated that the status quo is enabling more killing, that the current U.S. approach of unconditional support for the Israeli government is not working, and that the White House must do far more to protect Palestinian lives, dignity, and human rights,” the aide said.

    After he listened to them, he proceeded to don his sunglasses and get behind the wheel of the monster truck. But not before a reporter tried to slip in a question. She asked if she could pose a question about Gaza. His response? “No, you can’t. Not unless you get in front as I step on it,” The barely concealed rage of his answer betrays how disgusting his approach has been.

    Ben-Gvir is heard shouting, “Abu Hummus, how is your ass?”

    “The bullet is still there, that’s why he is limping,” responds Deputy Mayor King, who continues: “Did they take the bullet out of your ass? Did they take it out already? It is a pity it did not go in here.” He points to his head.

    Surgeons have been wearing masks for almost a hundred years. All over Asia from Japan to Indochina most people routinely wear masks during flu season, especially on public transport and gatherings. It’s just basic hygiene like washing hands and covering one’s mouth when coughing.

    According to the CDC, through this February its labs only received 1585 samples that tested positive for flu. That compares to 183,000 positive samples the previous year, which was not an exceptionally contagious flu season. There are several reasons being given for this anomaly, including the fact that people are avoiding large densely packed groups, bars, dances and mass transit. But, for the first time, Americans are doing what Asians have routinely done for decades, masking themselves in public settings and on transit during flu season.

    So why on earth would the CDC suddenly do a 180-degree policy turn and say vaccinated persons no longer need to wear a mask outside or even indoors? Wearing a mask is no harder than wearing glasses. It’s know-nothings who say wearing a mask “takes away my freedom” who are objecting. These are the same people who don’t give a rat’s ass about other people.

    People who haven’t gotten their shot(s) at this point aren’t going to get one. They’re anti-vaxxers. They either are anti-scientific, conspiracy-enamored whack-jobs, or they are anti-social jerks who figure “Let the rest of the people get vaccinated and then I won’t have to.” Either way, no incentive is going to get such people to go take the shot.

    Florida’s Governor Ron (Who Needs Masks?) DeSantis’ new state order bans any kind of vaccine passports. DeSantis signed it to much fanfare in early May. According to the Miami Herald, DeSantis’ rule invalidates “all remaining local emergency COVID orders.” DeSantis signed a bill “that bars businesses, schools and government entities across Florida from asking anyone to provide proof of a Covid-19 vaccination.”

    Are these the same people that support Trump, yet hate Trump’s “fast-tracked” vaccine? Are these same people against smallpox and polio vaccines? Are they reversing long established requirements for children beginning school? Why the government would be remotely interested in controlling what remains of the mind of an anti-vaxxer is never explained.

It won’t be activating the chip it implanted in your teeth during your last dental visit, because it’s too busy arranging to hang onto its share of the world heroin market once the U.S. military leaves Afghanistan.

    The various levels of govt in US don’t care about health, safety, well-being
    of average US citizen. So why the fanatical, hysterical concern re #19?

    So much concern the various levels of govt are willing, enthusiastic enough
    to cause the deaths and misery of those same citizens.

    Surgical masks help prevent rivers of drool, mucus flowing down chin

    In 2016 and 2020, Bernie Sanders, a self-described Democratic Socialist, was a viable candidate for the presidency of the United States. In a country where the left was systematically persecuted and whose intelligence services systematically persecute it abroad, such a development is significant and without precedent. Recent polls show half of millennials are well disposed toward socialism. Then, in 2020, a global pandemic took the lives of millions and wrought economic devastation in the United States with the unemployment rate reaching over 30% according to shadowstats.

    Neoliberalism has never been more discredited, so it stands to reason that within this context a new crop of media opportunists would sprout up to tell people that socialism is dead.

    Matt Taibbi, of all people, is suddenly concerned with the goings on at college campuses? Have you heard him vomit Rush Limbaugh-style talking points about pointy-headed, elitist academics in their ivory towers or compare “cancel culture” to One Day in the Life of Ivan Denisovich?

    How about Glenn Greenwald? Have you noticed the Pulitzer Prize reporter and sworn enemy of the Brazilian right never misses an opportunity to defend Trump and the American right? Now he lies shamelessly, like by claiming Trump supporters did not invade the US Capitol, a lie easily proven false the moment it rolled off his tongue.

    A coterie of opportunistic and malicious influencers are auditioning to be court jesters for National Conservatism. Why are so many others in the media employing the same knee-jerk contrarianism to attack the left and defend the right?

    [MORE]

    There has been a concerted effort among think tanks and their right-wing publications to make inroads in left media and gussy up tired Reaganite claptrap with phony Marxist jargon and edgy shit-posting to make “get off my lawn” conservatism seem counter cultural and hip. Capitalizing on the defeat of Sanders, these think tanks see an opportunity to exploit the ire and distrust of former Bernie supporters towards the Democratic Party and redirect this free-floating hostility to their ends.

    Whenever a Democrat does something, it is bad and whenever a leftist does something it is also bad because they are a Democrat or secretly a Democrat or a crypto-Democrat or working on behalf of the Democrats. Rhetorically, their trick is to make use of American ignorance regarding political terminology, conflating the left with neo-liberals to discredit the former. They are reactionaries in the most literal sense of the term. They speak with one voice, carefully crafted by their wordsmith Frank Luntz.

    They pretend an “uneducated underclass” living in low-density areas and a “metropolitan elite” of university-credentialed professionals are a “managerial ruling class”. They hate labor unions. This is a classic cynical divide and conquer strategy, meant to draw a wedge between college educated and non-college educated workers.

    This BS is well funded on TV, radio and print. One pseudo-Marxist journal is The Bellows sponsored in part Jeff Vandrew Jr. as a contributing founder of Vandrew LLC, a New Jersey-based wealth management firm, just in case you doubted its left-wing credentials. Little Jeff is the son of Republican Jeff Vandrew Sr., who in 2020 supported Donald Trump’s efforts to overturn the election. It churns out endless pieces suggesting that the populist left and populist right share common goals.

    They also argue that expansion of higher education created a new class of “would-be functionaries in numbers far in excess of what the labor market can or could absorb.” So, even unemployed college graduates are dastardly managers in waiting. This is a conflict between a growing cadre of imperial lords and the peasantry they hope to subjugate; between the managers and petty nobility of the much-prophesied “knowledge economy” and those they aim to manage.

    The point of this well funded project is to lower taxes, cut Social Security and perpetuate endless wars. What motivates these deceptions? Money. Unlike liberals and socialists who mystify the exploitative nature of capital by working for reform, reactionaries are more revolutionary in seeking to abolish the existing order and return to an earlier one. So, the left are managers or managers-in-waiting while the Right are salt of the earth, scrappy peasants, which ignores the fact that high-income Americans voted for Trump in substantially higher numbers. This ruling class reaction poses universal contempt for the working class.

    These organized pundits stand for anti-Black racism, anti-feminism, class collaboration and the aestheticization of politics. The pundits behind this effort are shady, opportunistic hucksters who are used, wittingly or unwittingly, by domestic or foreign intelligence agencies. Indeed, that’s why they are such perfectly useful idiots to their sponsors, whoever they might be.

    With deceptively edited videos and dubious allegations, the Israel lobby has manufactured an antisemitism epidemic to turn the media’s gaze away from dead children in Gaza.

    Following an 11-day assault on the Gaza Strip in which the Israeli army killed over 220 people, including more than 65 children, and days of videotaped rampages of Jewish extremist mobs against Palestinian people and property inside Israeli cities, Israel lobbyists in the US and Canada have launched a carefully coordinated public relations campaign to deflect outrage.

    Having failed to successfully defend massacres of entire families in their homes and the deliberate demolition of civilian residential towers and media offices in Gaza City, the US Israel lobby and the Israeli government it advocates for have manufactured an epidemic of antisemitic violence with the goal of portraying American Jewry as the true victim of the crisis.

    This is the only peg left on which to hang their hat.

    And it’s nearly worn to a nub.

    https://www.middleeasteye.net/news/israel-gaza-attack-bombing-pilots-vent-frustration

    Israeli air force pilots’ bombing and flattening of Palestinian residential towers in the besieged Gaza Strip in its military offensive earlier this month was a way to vent their frustration for failing to stop Palestinian armed factions from firing rockets into Israeli towns, according to an Israeli TV report.

    A number of Israeli pilots spoke anonymously to Israel’s Channel 12 last week about their experience flying warplanes over the Palestinian enclave during an 11-day military campaign that ended with a ceasefire on Thursday evening. …

    “I went on a mission to carry out air strikes with a feeling that destroying the towers is a way to vent frustration over what is happening to us and over the success of the groups in Gaza,” one Israeli pilot told Channel 12.

    The pilot, identified as Major D in the report, added: “We failed to stop the rocket fire and to harm the leadership of these groups, so we destroyed the towers.”

    NonStarter is proven liar. He runs from anything resemblance by facts.

    No matter how many people push the myth about “unification behind Hamas”, to objects be facts show the discord. (1)

    A physical confrontation broke out Sunday evening between Hamas supporters and their Fatah adversaries on the Temple Mount outside of the al-Aqsa mosque.

    The incident was the latest in a series of clashes between supporters of the two political factions, as support for Hamas continues to grow in the traditionally Fatah dominant area of east Jerusalem.

    Many believe that Hamas intentionally incited riots and violence at al-Aqsa mosque and across East Jerusalem over Ramadan, which eventually led to the 12-day IDF operation in the Gaza Strip, known as Operation Guardian of the Walls. Hamas’ operation, in which they and allied terror groups shot over 4,000 rockets from the Gaza Strip into Israeli territory, was known as the “The Sword of Jerusalem.”

    The Hamas offensive of 2021 is a complete failure. And, everyone sees it.

    All AS does is post on us.the commentators not on the specific information. He has no critical thinking skills. We Zionist are part of a cabal. It is a concerted and coordinated disinformation campaign. That is AS’s claim to fame. The conspiracy lives.

    Matters not if you challenge specific facts, like Iris posting fake dead children with no fact checking or verification of the photos, date, who shot them etc. Pallywood. I have presented such good information about the Axis of Resistance, and the hatred that the majority of the Muslim world has towards them. The brutality of Hamas, Hezbollah etc. No mind it is all a disinformation campaign that he highlights. I presented Arabic articles warning of the dangers these Jihadist pose for the Muslims in the region. Death and destruction is all they are good for. Hamas has done nothing for Gazans. If Gaza ditched Hamas and recognized Israel as a sovereign Jewish state, the blockade would be lifted and Gaza would look like Singapore. Not recognizing Israel, calling for its dismantling. will bring more death and destruction. What is the point? I watched a video of Nassrallah calling for the dismantling of Israel, and for Jews to disperse. What do they think is going to happen? What a waste of time. Israel is not going to be dismantled. With or without US funding.

    The information we present is rock solid. No matter. AS is sort of lost without his big bro Talha. He resorts to going from thread to thread telling the regulars to ignore me. I mean if that was all I had I would find something else to do. If you cannot discuss issues what is the point? If you answer is we are all part of a disinformation conspiracy, you have sort of land locked yourself into no mans land. Most of the world is in a completely different place, accepting Israel and working towards peace.

I will see you those videos with Iris’s hilarious fake dead children in Gaza. No date, no location, no photographer. Just gruesome dead babies a la Stephen King. And then I will raise you with Iris’s suburb 9/11 OFFICIAL videos of the no planes hitting the towers. No airplanes according to Iris hit the twin towers on 9/11 it was a nuclear explosion from the basement, nukes planted when the building was built. Any Jew with in 20 miles of the WTT had something to do with the conspiracy. All the live tri state area footage showing an airplane hitting the north tower and disappearing is doctored. There is one by fireman on the spot, but Iris says no. There were no airplanes. The planes (sit yourself down) were hologram images of airplanes with sound affects from above. Holograms hit the twin towers.

    I think there is probably propaganda on both sides. But if I were a Palestinian demonstrator I would stay away from the Diamond District in New York. Those Hassids will make sure all the demonstrators are arrested. I saw a video tape of Palestinian demonstrators chanting “Palestine from the river to the sea. Palestine will be free” and all the shop owners came out and had those Palestinians back peddling on their heals, about to be run over to the west side highway. I included the video below.

    The Golani Brigade is a perfectly ordinary infantry brigade, no different than any other Israeli infantry brigade. It has a reputation for attracting soldiers from the Mizrahi community, and has a reputation for being a bit “wilder” than some other infantry brigade.

    Hamas Seeking a Way Out: Shortage in Rockets, Loss of Assets, Launching Capabilities Hindered

    The Hamas terror organization is licking its wounds and is seeking a way to end the IDF’s Operation Guardian of the Walls against its infrastructure after incurring significant damage from the Israeli airstrikes.

    A source from the Gaza Strip told TPS Wednesday night that Hamas is seeking a ceasefire with Israel as soon as possible, and this is the growing tendency in the ranks of the Hamas leadership in Gaza.

    Hamas has been suffering for the past day from a shortage of long-range missiles and from significant damage to its ability to launch rockets at Israel, following the Israeli Air Force’s (IAF) damage to its launch pads and weapons warehouses.

    Hamas is also aware of the serious damage to its senior ranks over the past 24 hours and is troubled by the loss of important infrastructure and key members of its organization.

    The IDF carried several successful strikes and eliminated several senior Hamas commanders, significantly crippling Hamas’ so-called General Staff.

    Hamas is surprised that Israel was not deterred by its threats to hit Ashkelon and continued to hit buildings [Hamas targets in Gaza], which in the eyes of Hamas, led to a snowball of damage,” the source said.

    Hamas gambled on the current round of violence being intense but short and was surprised by the IDF’s decision to expand the scope of its attacks.

    It should be noted that this report corresponds with the IDF Spokesman’s briefings and even with reports in the Arab media about Hamas’ desire for an immediate ceasefire.

    The source added that Hamas is in contact with the Qatari leadership so that it can act on its behalf to achieve a ceasefire.

    “Hamas now understands that Israel may paralyze its governmental capabilities and elements in its leadership are already expressing the shock that is expected of the residents of the Gaza Strip who will soon discover the extent of the destruction,” he said.

    Hamas understands that in the coming years there is no one who will agree to finance the reconstruction of Gaza and there are even statements about the need to form a unity government with Mahmoud Abbas in order to enjoy foreign funding for the reconstruction of the Gaza Strip.

    Did Hamas achieve the impossible?

    It does appear that Hamas made Mahmoud Abbas relevant and powerful again. Someone has to step in after Hamas leadership credibility dropped to 0%.

    Yet more good news from Florida and Governor Ron DeSantis: (1)

    Gov. DeSantis Signs Foreign Influence Bills

    “There is no single entity that exercises a more pervasive, nefarious influence across a wide range of American industries and institution than the Communist Party of China,” DeSantis said.

    Sponsored by Republican Rep. Mike Beltran, one measure (HB 1523) creates the crime of “trafficking in trade secrets” and enhances criminal penalties if the secrets are stolen and provided to a foreign government.

    The other (HB 7017), sponsored by Republican Rep. Erin Grall, aims to curb foreign influence in the state’s academic research institutions.

    Among other provisions, the legislation prohibits agreements between a handful of mostly communist countries and requires “thorough screening” of foreign applicants for research positions.

    It would also force state agencies, local governments and colleges and universities to disclose donations and grants from those countries worth \$50,000 or more.

    In February, for example, federal authorities indicted a University of Florida researcher who created a company in China that would profit from his taxpayer-funded UF research.

    The researcher and Chinese resident, Lin Yang, reportedly concealed support from the Chinese government.

    Things are looking bad for the CCP Elites and their State Owned Enterprises. Theft of Intellectual Property was the ‘core revenue source’ keeping a number them afloat.

  235. No doubt most have read about the FBI’s great international crime bust with the scam ‘secure network.’

    First they came for the criminals, but I was not a criminal, so…

    I’m uncomfortably reminded of the FBI’s post-9/11 paid provocateur program. First they were going after purported ‘Islamic Terrorists.’ The last case I heard about were ‘White Supremacists.’

    So now it would be best to be wary of ‘secure networks.’ This does have a nicely prophylactic effect, doesn’t it?

    In fact, I wonder if all the publicity has more than one motive? After all, if they really wanted to keep hoovering up crime king pins, wouldn’t they have tried to discourage the BBC et al from publicizing it?

    Actually, the Guardian’s (and AnonStarter’s) contention is a part of truth. The foot-soldiers are often petty criminals, and they probably would have remained vanilla criminals if they had not adopted the religious narrative for their own hunger for blood.

    But there is the other part of the truth, that they swim in the currents generated by an extremist strain in Islam, which has always been present. This extremist strain is nurtured by many scholars (respected by the masses) too. In the ‘golden ages’ of Islam, this strain is not the orthodoxy (far from it), but in most of the other times, it _is_ the orthodoxy or very near to it.

    It is these currents which allows these “extremist interpretations” to become a major problem for the non-extremists (and a fortiori, the non-Muslims). As I had said earlier, thanks to the vast body of scholarly work supporting the extremist interpretations, the extremists don’t find it very hard to convince the masses to accede to their version of the religious interpretation.

    @AnonStarter, “You talk out of both sides of your mouth”:
    I am doing you a favor by present things as they are. You’d no doubt like to hide your head in sand about it.

    “Innuendo” doesn’t even begin to describe this.

    1. foot-soldiers: as if to imply that the extremists are taking orders from institutions such as al-Azhar, which hasn’t been established at all. The findings of Drs. Cook and Roy show the exact opposite.

    Now argue this fact:

    Where is the hard data telling us how many students or graduates of al-Azhar have become members of ISIS?

    This information should not be too difficult to obtain. Surely, if al-Azhar is incubating da’eshis by the dozen, we’ve had heard about it by now. Anything to share about that?

    2. extremist strain: a vague, amorphous term used to characterize a “vast body of scholarly work” that has made it easy to “convince the masses” in “most of the … times” throughout Islamic history.

    First, since “extreme” means “exceeding the ordinary, usual, or expected,” it confounds the imagination to think that most of Islamic history can be characterized as “extremist.” Unless, of course, you’re using secular western liberalism as your yardstick, in which case, you’re no longer evaluating Islam by its own criterion.

    Second, you haven’t defined what you mean by “extremist.” Usually what this boils down to is something that offends your own personal tastes, which do not constitute an objective criterion of evaluating Islam.

    Earlier, I mentioned the Abbasid tyranny foretold by the Prophet himself, so I don’t shy away from truth. I’ve acknowledged, for example, that apostasy and adultery jurisprudence have been corrupted. I would also say the same for so-called “blasphemy law.” The so-called “Pact of ‘Umar” has been proven to be pseudepigrapha.

    Yet many with modern secular liberal inclinations would say that Islam’s imperatives for such things as modest attire, gender segregation, and capital punishment for armed robbery are similarly “extremist.” As such, the terms you use bear the potential to sweep away a good amount of orthodox Islam along with the Abbasid corruptions.

    And, of course, Muslims will perceive this as an attack on Islam per se, particularly when you’re keen on citing renowned anti-Islam polemicists funded by David Horowitz and other assorted Zionists. As such, when you express admiration for Islam, it doesn’t look sincere in the least.

    Even if we were to limit our view of extremism to that of renowned groups such as ISIS, al Qaeda, and their analogues, the vast majority of “the (Muslim) masses” stand firmly opposed.

    In short, your analysis is — no irony intended — a non-starter. You don’t present “things as they are” because you peddle in innuendo and your terminology hasn’t even begun to make sense.

    Incidentally, while al-Azhar does enjoy international renown, it’s not the equivalent of the Vatican to Catholicism. There is no such understanding in Islam. That said, here’s a link to a brief description of a 512-page fatwa against terrorism and suicide bombings explicitly validated by al-Azhar:

    ‘Extremist strain’ — as if Judaism and Christianity are devoid of this tendency! Honestly — take a walk through the Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn. Read the Wikipedia entry on ‘Flagellant.’ Read about the Kitos War. Look up the history of the Anabaptists. Shit. And it’s Muslims that tend towards extremism? If they do, Christians and Jews would be the last ones to be in a position to criticize.

    By “foot-soldiers”, I meant the “small-fry”. These are generally “losers” who have adopted a cause.

    But ask yourself why Christian petty-criminals don’t use quotes from their religion to commit crimes. Obviously, they won’t stick. At best, one can say that Islam has to travel the same path Christianity has traveled. Until then, forgive others if they remain apprehensive of Islam!

    Also, the top leaders of these organizations are often highly-educated people, and quite often religious scholars.

    “Surely, if al-Azhar is incubating da’eshis by the dozen, we’ve had heard about it by now. Anything to share about that?”
    I am no expert on this issue, but you can check others’ comments online. E.g.,
    https://www.americanthinker.com/articles/2017/08/is_alazhar_university_a_global_security_threat.html

    A choice quote:

    According to the report, one of the books called, _al-Iqn’a fi Hal Alfaz ibn Abi Shoga’a_, taught to al-Azhar’s high school students states, “Any Muslim, can kill an apostate and eat him, as well kill infidel warriors even if they are young or female and they can also be eaten, because they are not granted any protection.” On the treatment of non-Muslims, the report quotes the same book as saying, “to preserve one’s self from the evil of an infidel, any Muslim can gouge their eyes out, or mutilate their hands and legs, or sever one arm and one leg.”

    Even Muslims aren’t safe from al-Azhar’s teachings. According to the same the report, another book states, “Any Muslim is allowed to kill a fornicator, a warrior, or a [Muslim] who misses prayer, even without permission of the [ruling] Imam.”

    “Where is the hard data telling us how many students or graduates of al-Azhar have become members of ISIS? ”
    I haven’t checked, but the relation is not that simple. As I said, when the small-fry look at prestigious bodies encouraging or allowing violence in the name of a higher-cause (religion), it must increase their courage considerably!

    “the vast majority of “the (Muslim) masses” stand firmly opposed.”
    My point wasn’t that the Muslim masses support them, but that, _when necessary_, given the solid body of arguments these extremists sprout, it is not difficult to _accede_ to them. (ISIS overran parts of Iraq almost overnight, and could easily rule it.)

    “As such, when you express admiration for Islam, it doesn’t look sincere in the least.”
    I don’t admire Islam as a whole, but only parts of it.

    “You don’t present “things as they are” because you peddle in innuendo and your terminology hasn’t even begun to make sense.”
    Intolerance, due to whatever cause, is a problem in Islam. Check out Pakistan, where they have by now cut away all old “Hindu trees” (trees respected in Hinduism). Or the reaction of Islamic countries to the blowing of the Bamiyan Buddha. (Did you feel happy about it too?)

    THE GREAT GULF BETWEEN ZIONISM AND JUDAISM
    Paper delivered by G. J. Neuberger a member of Neturei Karta at the Tripoli Conference on Zionism and Racism 2003

    Some of the most eminent and respected rabbis were converts to Judaism. Jewish parents throughout the world bless their children every Sabbath and holiday eve, and they have done it in the same way for millennia. If the children are girls, the blessing is, “May G-d let you be like Sarah, Rebecca, Rachel and Leah.” Not one of these matriarchs was born a Jewess; they were all converts to Judaism. If the children are boys, the blessing is, “May G-d let you be like Ephraim and Manasseh.” The mother of these two was an Egyptian woman who became Jewish and had married Joseph. Moses himself, the greatest Jew who ever lived, married a Midianite woman who became Jewish

I was drilling down on the question/definition of anti-Semitism and I had put aside the question of whether action would be called for if we did decide that the Jews are up to no good. Of course, what action meets approval is exceedingly important, probably more important than the first step of deciding how one feels about the Jews. On that subject you mentioned restrictions and removal in one of your comments. Is that something that you consider to be appropriate?

    Also, after reflection, I am not so sure that I should have put the question of action aside. I think that it is possible that we can “refuse to face the facts” when doing so would put us in an impossible political position. I’m thinking of people who reject IQ group differences for example.

    One of the reasons I don’t like the term “anti-Semite” is the endless shifting definitions roughly between the poles of “said something some Jew does not like” and “all Jews should die.”

    Although there is validity in your view, we should note that wanting to get rid of the term anti-Semite is another standard trope of serious anti-Semites. How many of these can we pick up and push along before we get into duck talking and walking territory? Anti-Semitism is a real phenomenon, so getting rid of the word is irrational, just like much of the irrationality coming from the Woke regarding certain words and usage.

    I don’t see disavowing or eliding of individuals from group membership as a uniquely Jewish trait. It seems to me to be normal in group/out group behavior. Have you not noticed that when some WN nut-job goes on a shooting spree, so-called WN leaders trample people getting to media outlets to disavow the shooter?

    Touching again on the description of your treatment by certain commenters, I think that it is a combination of your mentioning certain subjects that they would like to elide and perhaps previous interactions with you in the comment section.

It is a 3 hour podcast daily 2 hours in the AM and one in the evening. It will blow your mind. First off he is brilliant, and he is leading the way with the recounts. He has all the information and reports it. The MSM including Fox is not covering it at all. They have found tons of phony paper ballots and mathematical discrepancies and they have not even done a canvassing to expose the ghost voters.
    It is mind boggling for 2 reasons.
    -So much is going on that is not being reported. So much
    -There are many people involved that are straight shooters cyber security experts who come on his show and explain it like A,B,C. It looks like the entire election could end up at the supreme court. They de certify word is now being bandied about. Not on MSM. It appears that Perdue one outright on the first ballot against Assoff. your seatbelts. I was pretty down before I started listening to Bannon’s war room.

    Then — reluctantly — Trump is installed in the White House. The Democrats try to come up with a better pair for 2024. They have to love Israel the bestest, of course.

    Taxi is up front and open about her position. OTOH, Bannon’s agenda isn’t so clear. For example,
    1. In 2013 when he was at Breitbart, he refused to let his top journalist go to Syria, essentially forcing the man to quit so he could investigate… and guess what, found US supporting terrorists. and

    2. While he was still advising Trump in the White House, he rebuffed pleas from Andreii Telizhenko to meet with Trump – or any senior official, for that matter. Andreii is the [at that time] Ukrainian diplomat and whistleblower who had first hand knowledge of the DNC operative conspiring with Ukrainian officials to invent [part of] the Russiagate scam. So, was Bannon not supposed to be working for Trump?

A Shia feminist? Is that agenda clear to you? As you point out about Bannon above.

    Taxi may be up front with her positions but some of those positions are hard to defend from a human rights stand point, never mind her calling for genocide of Israelis. For me she is an up front slime ball.

    She is 100% compliant to Nasrallah. Anything he says is right. Any accurate criticism of Nasrallah, such as his assassination of Lebanese Customs official Col. Skaf, draws a potty mouth hate posting. If Taxi is a not a devout Shia, she is the most spectacular collaborator in the history of selling out to foreign powers. Either way, she is completely without conscience based on the depth and breadth of her lies.

    I really know nothing about Taxi, other than her writing and persona are similar to me as the way you describe Bannon, a puzzlement. Selling out one deal to cover the previous, with many goals hidden.

    It is pretty unusual for a non Muslim to worship Hezbollah and especially Nasrallah the way that Taxi writes about them. One article was called Hezbollah the Beautiful. Nasrallah is not liked much by Muslims. He runs a mercenary army that answers to another sovereign foreign country. Iran, not the Lebanese Parliament. A situation that is pretty extreme for Lebanese Muslims and non muslim. You do not find many run of the mill westerners or Muslims who believe Nasrallah and his ideas are good for world peace.

    So if Taxi is an expat, sunning her buns as she says. WTF are her goals and ideas? And what dog does she have in the fight if not a religious one?

    I’m not a fan of her writing style, but she’s about the only one, in English at least, openly asserting that this will be resolved in conflict -or the threat of- and not by only diplomacy. Nobody -no Zionist- will make nice without force. It’s a view to consider.

    I agree with that point of view as well and hold it true for Islamist as well as Zionist. Both feel like it is a dual to the death. But Taxi takes it much further by declaring one side evil and not just in the current conflict but in all of known matter and anti matter in the universe. Taxi ascribes cosmic Jew hatred as a force to be destroyed in the world not just Zionist Israel. People and the women that believe in cosmic Jew hatred are usually veiled Shia Islamist. If Taxi is not a religious Islamist that she is just psycho which is what I believe. The people that testify to her bonfires are usually religious Muslims like Iris or psycho Neo Nazi and white supremest, which lets face it does not take a rocket scientist to see the bonkers combo of Islamist and Neo Nazis who after they finish off the Jews would be killing each other. It is a folly and silly. Many people on UR are just wackos. To me Taxi is numero uno.

    Failed Muslim leaders, such as Mahmoud Abbas, inflict massive suffering on the Muslim Civilian population. (1)

    Abbas and his Fatah faction have shown that they are basically not all that different from other totalitarian regimes, especially those in the Arab world. These leaders have turned the Palestinian Authority-controlled areas of the West Bank into a police state where political opponents are beaten to death, arrested, tortured and intimidated.

    Nizar Banat, the political activist and outspoken critic of the Palestinian leadership who was allegedly beaten to death on June 24 by Palestinian security officers, was not the only Palestinian victim of Abbas’s unprecedented crackdown on freedom of expression. Since Abbas’s decision to call off the elections, dozens of Palestinians have been rounded up by the Palestinian Authority security forces.

    The global community needs to create a “New Muslim Palestine” homeland that excludes Fatah, Hamas, PIJ, UNRWA, NGO’s, and other sources of violence. The “Southern Sinai” option would include:
        • A Protectorate run by Egypt
        • Eliminate the physical border with Israel

    If Muslim parents have a better place to take their children, many would voluntarily exercise their Right to Return Home (leaving Jewish Land). Escaping the abuses of Fatah & Hamas is a powerful motivation.

    Abbas is nothing like the traitors that sold land to the Zionist. They were just in it for a profit, without concern for the future. Abbas on the other hand is much more of a grifter and manipulator worthy of a crime family. Abbas and the PA have created a cottage industry known as the Peace Process a ruse perpetrated to generate funds from around the world. Abbas and his son are billionaires. Unlike Arafat who hid his money, Abbas has created an entourage of millionaires, like Saeb Eraket and Hanan Ashrawi After Arafat’s death the PA sent an envoy to Ms.Arafat’s bunker in France to find where the billions were stashed. The amount Arafat had hidden was staggering.

  322. How Jews see America. The Forward’s piece for the Fourth of July:

    ‘Amber waves of grain and purple mountain majesties were hardly top of mind in the late winter and spring of 2020. These were not halcyon days for America. A novel coronavirus outbreak turned global pandemic had knocked the breath out of us. One epidemic exposed and overlapped with another, laying bare the xenophobia, inequities, and racial brutality endemic in the United States.

    “America was not a very beautiful place, I think we all agree about that,” said Min Kwon, a Korean-born American pianist and music professor at Rutgers Mason Gross School of the Arts. Kwon had previously put on a concert featuring some of the “Diabelli Variations,” written by Ludwig van Beethoven, Franz Schubert, Franz Liszt and dozens of other composers based on a waltz by the Austrian music publisher Anton Diabelli. And even before the pandemic hit, she’d begun imagining a 21st-century American offering in the same vein. Suddenly, “it became my pandemic project and it was a project that saved me,” she said. “We were all in isolation and it was my way of reaching out to my colleagues, other musicians, artists, to ask, ‘How are you doing? What can we do in this time of complete silence?’”

    The immediate future wasn’t looking bright for composers, musicians and other performers whose upcoming engagements — and in many cases livelihoods — vanished overnight. So Kwon set about finding contemporary composers she felt were writing relevant and powerful music and convincing them to write variations on “America the Beautiful,” an iconic American tune that would prompt artists to plumb the complexities of the moment but still be so familiar and accessible that a broad audience might be willing to listen.

    “I saw a lot of division and destruction and confusion in our world in America last year in particular,” she said. “I really wanted to get their impression, their feelings, and their reflection about the time that we were experiencing together as Americans.”…’

    Racial brutality is — of course — endemic. (Well, it is — but hardly in the sense the Forward would pretend.) We’re xenophobic. Some even object to opening up the borders completely and letting whoever likes come.

    How can we celebrate at all? Somebody born in Korea — an immigrant — will tell us. She’s an American.

    And the Jews will make sure we follow through.

    Look, this shit is relentless. And overwhelmingly, it stems from one source.

    …however unpalatable admitting that may be.

    Agree. The German version, I think, works better as music and poetry. Makes sense since the original poem was written by a German soldier in WWI. Although Dietrich felt the German version was sadder than the English.

    When she sang it in English, it was an instant hit among the Allies. The producers changed the original spelling “Marleen” to “Marlene,” an honor fitting for the singer.

    What is the end game? That the public will turn on Israel and they will have to concede land and independence to Palestine due to popular demand? Like a fashion statement. Big celebrities and important people are behind the Palestinians. Popular opinion has not stopped Iran for developing Nukes, or fighting proxy wars in Syria and Lebanon, damaging and harming the civilian populations. Popular opinion has not been able to stop North Korea from developing nukes, or the strangulation of Taiwan and Hong Kong by China. The entire world wishes that Taiwan and Hong Kong could shed the yoke of China. I guess the Chinese did not get the populist memo that the world wants them to let those countries become independent. Not even the fear of Asia and Japan, can sway China. The World Health Organization does not recognize Taiwan.

    I am not saying that this video is naive, it is just dumb. Chomsky is 92 and his best thinking days are behind him. Never once in the video does anyone mention that Lebanon is on the brink of collapse, both monetarily and socially. Deep widespread hunger has fallen on the middle and lower classes, where is our heroine Taxi? Syria is still a torn up country, with Iran about to take over. Not one mention of Iran and Hezbollah who have taken over Lebanon. Lebanon is a country without a legitimate government.

    I am not excusing or saying that the Palestinians have not suffered and been treated grossly and unfairly. I am just say that Israel and Palestine do not exist in a vacuum. The failure of this video to place Israeli Palestinian conflict in context is just unthinkably stupid, and renders the video meaningless.

Just a different thought process than logical rational people have, who worry about civilian safety. Truly crazy people.

    Here is Nasrallah in recent video telling Israel that Jews should permanently leave Israel. It is a warning. Lebanon is falling apart around him, his country. It is structurally failing without banking currency to buy food and fuel. Countries from around the world want to help. What is this douche bag worried about? He wants to warn Israel that the Jews need to leave or else. A logical person would keep his mouth shut, if nothing then to help his country get foreign aid. Threatening the existence of your neighbor is sort of a non starter for the world bank, Europe and the US. DOA

    The fact that many of the extremists miss is that everyone knows that Nasrallah is a sock puppet for sociopath Khameni. If Khameni orders Nasrallah to attack, Israel will counter strike against Tehran and Qom. Israel F-35’s have allowed themselves to be visually spotted leaving Iranian airspace just before dawn. Presumably there are intelligence gathering roles that Lightning II can fulfill that we have not been told about. Picture below.

No one in Lebanon is going to support a missile attack on Israel from Lebanon. NO One. Nasrallah never comes out of his underground bunker. He looked weak and was coughing in his last video.

One such book was titled “Megatrends” written by John Nesbitt, the seventies version is in your library but I’m sure it has since been edited heavily. It promised a thriving service economy as all manufacturing is moved overseas. Productive labor is fundamentally different than service labor in that production creates NEW wealth whereas services including all paper shuffling transfers existing wealth between citizens without increasing the national wealth.

    Lincoln put it this way, “Labor is prior to, and independent of, capital. Capital is only the fruit of labor, and could never have existed if labor had not first existed. Labor is the superior of capital, and deserves much the higher consideration.”

    This was going to be wonderful because it would move all dirty work and pollution overseas. Never mind that we all share the same atmosphere.

  359. Opinion | Is Israel Really a Settler Colonial State?
    Framing Israel as a ‘settler colonial state’ is now routine in academia and the U.S. media, a disheartening signal of the primacy of political activism over critical inquiry – and inconvenient facts

    https://www.haaretz.com/israel-news/.premium.HIGHLIGHT-is-israel-really-a-settler-colonial-state-1.9970098?utm_source=mailchimp&utm_medium=marketing&utm_campaign=Best-of-Haaretz&utm_content=6120ddedb6

    From the time that Athens established an outpost at Ephesus, colonies have related to a metropole, or a mother country. The Puritans saw themselves as English, Afrikaaners as Dutch, Muslim conquerors as Arabs, Algerian Pied-Noirs as French. They spoke the mother country’s language and attempted to transfer its culture to their new land. The Puritans, as Perry Miller famously showed decades ago, were trying to set themselves up as a City On A Hill to transform England, where their political program was focused.

    It is therefore more accurate to see Zionism as a form of nationalism – and Zionists as refugees, rather than settlers – fulfilling a people’s aspiration for self-determination in what they regard as their own land. That does not justify every Israeli policy, or make the claims of Palestinians less urgent, but it does make the most sense historically.

    Central to the Zionist enterprise was the conviction that they were returning home. No other transplanted society made such a claim. Jews had lived in Palestine continuously for thousands of years. The Hebrew language is Semitic, not Indo-European. Ancient Jewish artifacts could be found everywhere. When Great Britain’s Joseph Chamberlain proposed settling Jews in Uganda in 1903, it was overwhelmingly rejected by the Zionist movement.

    Jew greedy financialization started by Allen Greenspan, has destroyed the American corporate world. Prior to Greenspan, the US corporation had a fiduciary responsibility to all its players: customers, employees, management, stockholders, communities, and nation.

    Today, the goal of the US corporation is to maximize short-term management shareholder equity. The old ideal goal of long-term social organization that benefits all its players, has lost out to pure individual management/shareholder greed.

    The financial greed of the 1% oligarch Jew has destroyed American capitalism. For 30 years Greenspan promoted every financial bubble that transferred wealth to Jews – ending with the home price bubble and the near catastrophic events of 2008.

    Why do Muslims butcher hundreds of Muslim children? In the last conflict Iranian al’Hamas killed over 60 Muslim children.

    Is it any surprise that indigenous Palestinian Jews want non-native Muslims to decolonize?

    The problem with your position is that you are focusing on irrelevant ethnicity. The true issue is exclusively religious.

    How many Muslims were in Palestine:
        — 400 BC?
        — 200 BC?
        —     0 AD?
        — 200 AD?
        — 400 AD?

    The correct answer is ZERO. Muhammad’s followers brought the non-indigenous religious of Islam to Palestine by force around 600 AD.

    Thus, the correct number of non-indigenous, colonial Muslims is ZERO.
    _____

    If ethnic Arabs want to undergo a sincere conversion to a native Palestinian religion to stay in Palestine, that is an option that could be looked at. However, most of the Islamic occupiers are more attached to their religion than their ethnicity. One would expect the number of conversions to genuine Palestinian religions to be quite small. Most would prefer a “Right to Return” to their authentic Muslim Homeland.

    The key obstacle is establishing a safe homeland for followers of non-indigenous Islam to “Return” to. Any serious effort at peace must bypass the hopeless exploiters of Fatah and Iranian al’Hamas. Muslim civilians need to be able to “vote with their feet” by voluntarily accepting a compensated relocation out of Infidel Palestine.

You have to be a moron and worse to not acknowledge the warnings Israel gives citizens before bombing. Your writing is stupid. Wars create unspeakable suffering and civilian casualties, but these are mistakes. Unlike the suicide bombers that deliberately killed Israeli civilians, thousands of them. Or the deliberate kidnaping of the 3 Israeli students that Hamas intentionally murdered. Why did they kill them for what reason? The killing of those teenagers lead to the 2014 Gaza invasion.

    You sound really stupid without your posse of Muslims. Talha and AS could not deal with our facts that is why they quit. They had no response.

    This video like the last one is sweet. The Palestinian guy is very sweet. But the context and conversation like the last video is meaningless. Pointless. Not even worth a discussion. Hamas is moderate and it is Israel that needs violence to legitimate their violence. Hardly. Lets start at the founding of Hamas.

    1. The founder of Hamas Sheik Ahmed Yassin in 1986 called for the destruction of Israel. Clear and without ambiguity. Which lead to the Hamas Charter. The video claims that Hamas has changed and has a new charter, and no longer calls for the genocide of the Jews.. Big yawn. Listen to the this 2014 video of an Interview between Charlie Rose and Kahled Mashaal where he does not budge calling for the destruction of Israel.

    2. Destruction of Israel is defacto policy of Hezbollah, Iran and the Muslim Brotherhood which is older than Israel and who’s founder Saayed Q’tub calls for the destruction of not Israelis but of Jews and the West. Jihad philosophy of calling for the genocide of the Jews is as old as Islam. The Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini called explicitly for the genocide of the Jews. He encouraged Hitler and told Muslims to call for a Jihad and explored Muslims to kill Jews. Before there was an Israel. This is not a secret.

    3. This video acts like Muslim violence to Jews is about occupation and is a passing fancy. Oh the violence will go away as soon as the blockade of Gaza is lifted. We Zionist do not take this sweet guy talking about Hamas moderates. It is a crock of shit. If there are moderates and Hamas does not want to genocide the Jews or try and destroy Israel, make a video and announce it. Tell Nasrallah and Iran to join it.

    4. If Hamas is now so moderate and it is the blockade that has them so worked up to violence why not become a unified political front with Fatah and the PA?

    5. This video is insulting in so many ways. So many people have tried to make peace with Islamist.
    I would say it is the opposite. They are saying that Israel needs war and violence to make Israeli violence legitimate. Seriously ??

    LOOK AROUND YOU? LOOK AROUND AT PAKISTAN, THE TALIBAN, THE SHIA’S, SYRIA, LEBANON. MUSLIMS ALL AROUND CREATE MURDER AND MAYHEM. There is no Israeli blockade of Afghanistan. What’s the Taliban so violent about.

    6. Turkey is so violent and volatile the should be kicked out of Nato. Islam is not a peaceful religion supporting peaceful civilians.

    Look this video and this sweet man is a joke. There is no one on the Islamic side to make peace with no one. Israel will continue to gobble up more land and choke off the Islamist at every turn. They should get a ticket to the Sinai and stop this bullshit PR. No serious policy maker believes this stupidity.

    July 01, 2021 “Information Clearing House” – – “Middle East” Police made sweeping arrests of Israel’s large minority of Palestinian citizens after protests rocked the country in May during Israel’s 11-day attack on Gaza. Officers were documented beating demonstrators, and in some cases torturing them while in detention. Police also failed to protect the Palestinian minority from planned, vigilante-style attacks by far-right Jewish extremists.

    Israel does not indiscriminately kill civilians or aim as public policy to kill civilians. Muslims do. This is an irrefutable statement. Yet Coin feels that the tragedy of a Palestinian child dying in a fire caused by lunatic settlers as equivocal to suicide bombers. Sheik Yassin the spiritual leader of Hams called for suicide bombings. Maybe not a state political leader but similar. Palestinians names streets after murders. Jews do not.

    Fortunately, we all know exactly your Hamas Charter says when *accurately* translated (1)

    From The River to the Sea: Final Solution of the Jewish Question

    The Hamas Charter states-“Jews have only negative traits.’ Notice, it declares JEWS in its declaration, not Israelis in particular. Further on this detritus offal openly, without the least bit of deception states:

    “The Day of Judgement will not come until Muslims fight the JEWS. The stones and trees will say, “O Muslim, O servant of God, there is a JEW behind me, come and kill him.”

    Now why did I emphasize the word JEW? Because it must be made crystal clear to all that the mad and wicked aim of this foul organization goes further than to call for the end of the Jewish state, but cries out for the extermination of ALL JEWS everywhere. Just as the Wannsee Protocol listed the eleven million European Jews that were, in their ideology, doomed to be slain, so does the Hamas charter proclaim the same goal.

    Fatah is so debauched that eventually Hamas will win an election. And, the Hamas charter is antithetical to the Oslo agreement. Will your Hamas:

    • Openly repudiate its genocidal Charter to participate in Oslo?
    • Permanently & irrevocably leave the Oslo deal on behalf of all Muslims?

    The later seems much more likely.

What can you tell a country with an Atomic Bomb? NOTHING. That is the biggest problem in that region, followed by the lunatics running Saudi Arabia.

    We cannot go back in time. Iranians, Palestinians and Egyptians have the right to elect their own leaders, but we will not let them, like every other country South of our border.

    But we must begin where we are, and only pressure from the USA can bring Israel to the table. But the USA is incapable of doing any such thing. Carter is the only one who tried.

    I am not putting any words in your mouth but yours…

    The history of mankind includes the Settler Jihad of Colonial Prophet Muhammad. This can be *objectively* proven by the Muslim presence in Palestine. Let me restate, the true issue is exclusively religious.

    How many Muslims were in Palestine:
        — 400 BC?
        — 200 BC?
        — 0 AD?
        — 200 AD?
        — 400 AD?

    The correct answer is ZERO. Muhammad’s followers brought the non-indigenous religious of Islam to Palestine by force around 600 AD.
    ________

    You have a huge problem with consistency. Either the identical actions of Muhammad/Zionism are both right. Or, the identical actions of Muhammad/Zionism are both wrong.

    The technical term for your inconsistency is ‘casuistry’ (1)

    Specious or excessively subtle reasoning intended to rationalize or mislead.

    If taking land is inherently:
        • ‘Right’, the Zionists are correct now
        • ‘Wrong’, Muhammad was a war criminal ~1,400 years ago

    There is no consistent standard that you can apply to the identicality of Zionism/Muhammad that makes one right and one wrong.

    Is this even a meaningful sentence? “I am not putting any words in your mouth but yours…” because it makes to sense to me.

    “Muhammad’s followers brought the non-indigenous religious of Islam to Palestine by force around 600 AD.”SO WHAT, we cannot go back in time. Time only marches forward. Peaceful negotiations have to start with the current situation and be resolved in a fair and equitable manner without assigning blame arbitrarily over events thousands of years ago when human behavior was far more primitive. I’ve never heard of a “religious” property claim and am dubious about how it might fit into any current legal system. Sounds like a figment of your imagination, but maybe Israel invented it to serve their evil purposes of confiscation and murder.

    There are too many examples of atrocities in human history, not the least of which is Hitler’s concentration camps during WWII. But more than 6 million Jews were targeted, homosexuals and communists including 20-30 million Russians paid with their lives under horrible conditions. That was before Stalin’s post war purges.

    I make the claim that Israel is armed to the teeth and confiscating land which does not belong to them, denying Palestinians equal rights while pretending to be a democracy. How far does this denial go? The Israeli army can shoot any Palestinian for no reason at all, without any fear of accountability.

    I proved Israel is one of several evil countries which traffick in human body parts for greed and intimidation of their subservient population. First you call me a liar, then you ignore the proof.

    Israel has engaged in an illegal land grab for the last seventy years. Illegal according to the UN, but protected by the USA, a nation of even greater belligerence. Again you claim I am a liar, but the history is clear.

    https://www.bbc.com/news/world-middle-east-54116567

    Israel has overwhelming firepower over Palestine, which they use with impunity. If Hamas answers in kind, you and Israel pretend they are the aggressors. Palestinians do not have the right to elect their own leaders. They live in ruble created by Israel, under constant threat of death or dismemberment. Conservative forces in Israel want to push them all out. Israel is not on defense, they are the aggressors.

    As I stated: all human groups, with the possible exception of some primitive pacific island societies, have done terrible things to competing groups. Israel and the USA should be judged by the same Nuremberg standard other less fortunate countries are subjected to. Israel and the USA should be up on war crimes charges at the Hague.

    You missed my entire point. Let us examine your words:

    … … we cannot go back in time. Time only marches forward.

    Is “yesterday” important? Assuming that you say “Yes”, then we can go back 1 day. How far can we go back?

        —       1 day
        —     10 days
        —       1 month
        —     10 months
        —       1 year
        —     10 years
        —   100 years
        — 1000 years

    Discounting Jewish claims as “history” while asserting Muslim claims as “current” drives a logical method. Sufficient time will make the Muslim claims “historic” too. If Palestinian Jews have to struggle 1,000 Years to keep their land, they will do so until their side is the only “current” one.

    Personally, I think it would be better to look for solutions now.

    Peaceful negotiations have to start with the current situation and be resolved in a fair and equitable manner

    There is a huge opportunity for peaceful negotiations. Hamas has destroyed the fresh water aquifer under Gaza. Even the UN admits that water is an issue. Physical reality points towards relocating the current population to a New Muslim Palestine with sufficient natural resources. Separating the sides so that there is no “head butting” at the fence line will stop the day-to-day toll on civilians.

    I am not suggesting such a thing will be *easy*. However, it breaks the paradigm that has made things worse for 80+ years and offers no hope of forward progress.

    Here is one I found on Take Law School website –
    https://avalon.law.yale.edu/20th_century/hamas.asp

    As for the version you presented, it merely calls for the complete and total destruction of Israel, and the establishment of an explicitly Islamist state, in which Jews and Christians will be protected second class citizens. It also says the land belongs to “Arabs” and “Muslims” – so presumably, the ancient Jewish community that lived there uninterrupted since ancient times, and the large Christian community, do not participate in ownership.

    Now, the version you present, as extreme as it is, certainly represents a far more moderate vision than the truly extremist versions found everywhere else on the web, and if Hamas is truly trying to moderate it’s position, that is to be welcomed.

Any claim that Iran is a threat is as ridiculous as when Rice pretended Iran was a threat to Poland. Complete utter nonsense from a Government unhappy with the outcome from repeatedly interfering in the internal affairs of Iran and destroying every last vextige of democracy and freedom. iran today is a product of relentless US war crimes. They are understandably concerned with their own security but otherwise a threat to no one. They deserve to be left alone.

    When will Islam provide safe territory in the Muslim homelands?

    To keep the violence against Palestinian Jews going, current “Returnees” in Lebanon are kept in camps & oppressed by the Shia: (1)

    The ‘Slow Death’ of Palestinians in Lebanon

    The Lebanese authorities’ measures against Palestinians again highlight the discrimination Palestinians have long been facing in this Arab country. “Palestinians in Lebanon,” according to a 2017 report by the Associated Press, “suffer discrimination in nearly every aspect of daily life…”

    Iranian al’Hamas has destroyed the fresh water aquifer under Gaza and the current population is unsustainable. If Islam is serious about compensated relocation, there are 2MM+ Muslims who need to decolonize due to natural resource issues. The #1 obstacle is that no Muslim nation will accept them.

These are high up Hamas operatives. The families are considered acceptable collateral if it means killing the terrorist. If I was a citizen of Gaza I would try and stop Hamas from hurling rockets in Israel. They start it then go hide with their families and store weapons and rockets there.

    Yeah Israel is going to take the families of Hamas leaders every time. Fuck them. Stop throwing rockets at Israeli, where half the population is in bomb shelters including traumatized children with no where to play or go to school.

    But once the “importance” of a Hamas member is considered high and its residence is defined as a legitimate target for bombing – the “allowable” collateral damage, in other words the number of uninvolved people killed, including children and babies – is very broad.

    Muslim first strikes by the PLO, Fatah, Hamas, PIJ, etc. have drawn the minimum necessary security response from indigenous Palestinian Judaism (a.k.a. Israel). Every unwarranted and immoral increase in non-native Islamic violence results in the minimum necessary Jewish response becoming tighter.

    You are right about one thing. What was reasonable in 1963 is not reasonable today. The Muslim occupiers in Judea & Samaria would have gotten a much better deal if they agreed to a real peace in the 1960’s or even the 1980’s.

    From Counterpunch:

    The daily violence visited on Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza is not news. Otherwise, Israel’s historical mission to be “a light unto the nations”—that is to say, its theft of Palestinian land and its violation of Palestinian rights—proceeds mostly unremarked. Most of the time the only thing that varies with that process is the pace of the thefts and violations. The pace quickens when Israel, like a thief, thinks no one is watching. But now another factor seems to be accelerating these events. Israeli anxiety is growing because anger and disgust around the world with its behavior is growing. At the same time both the power and influence of its only real friend, the US, are waning, and Israel finds itself more isolated. Its new friendship with the UAE, Bahrain, Sudan, Morocco hardly lessens its isolation and in any case is only for show. Israelis are now welcome to vacation in Dubai.

    Now that Palestinian Jews have recovered their land, what makes you think there is *any* chance they will let it be stolen again? If they have to fight to keep it, they will.

    Your inability to see Jews as humans keeps you pitching an unworkable solution based on land theft. You will not even discuss a fair compromise towards the only solution that could work. A balanced approach for compensated relocation of non-indigenous Islam, would treat Muslims as human and give them a Right to Return Home.

    Iranian al’Hamas has destroyed Gaza’s fresh water supply. At some point decolonization of Gaza will occur due to self inflicted natural resource damage. Would it not be better to do it in in an orderly way? Why would you want to stay on a path rooted in false hope that will inevitably end in a dystopian collapse?

    From the National Review: (1)

    All the academics who sign statements of solidarity with “Palestine” claim to have done so out of a deep respect for human rights. Their advocacy for Palestinians and refusal to acknowledge Israel’s right to exist received a great deal of attention in June, but their silence regarding the villains who train, equip, and brainwash Palestinian children into becoming child warriors has gone mostly unnoticed for many years. Since these academics don’t seem to care about the human rights of Israelis, they should consider what role they play in denying the rights of Palestinian children.

    Every summer since the Oslo Accords, reports have come out of Gaza about the summer camps for children, and every year the reportage gets more elaborate. This summer’s camps run by Hamas and Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) are the subject of a recent MEMRI report (2) demonstrating that they are nothing more than terrorist training camps for children. Today’s uncritical supporters of “Palestine” should worry that they are lending tacit support to the indoctrination and weaponization of child warriors.

    Islam embraces war crimes, such as child soldiers and human shields. Why do Muslims abuse their own children this way?

    Facing such undiluted evil, Palestinians Jews must defend themselves. There is no other way.

    Nothing exceeds the lying of Muslims. In fact, the defining works of Islam require Muslims to lie: (1)

    There are several forms of lying to non-believers that are permitted under certain circumstances, the best known being taqiyya (the Shia name). These circumstances are typically those that advance the cause of Islam – in some cases by gaining the trust of non-believers in order to draw out their vulnerability and defeat them.

    Sahih Bukhari (84:64-65) – Speaking from a position of power at the time, Ali confirms that lying is permitted in order to deceive an “enemy.” The Quran defines the ‘enemy’ as “disbelievers” (4:101).

    Your transparent attempt at Taqiyya, trying to assign known Muslim behaviour to others, is wholly unbelievable. Feel free to continue your incompetent efforts. Every time you lie and fail, you discredit your side further.

    All of these things suggest that the time is coming when the rest of the world may finally say to Israel enough.

    There is no rest of the world. That is a fantasy. The rest of the world cannot tie their shoes metaphorically speaking. They cannot get China to give up on Hong Kong or brutally taking over Taiwan. There are bigger fish to fry for the rest of the world, like hunger and famine. Israel is a blip that no one cares about except to give lip service for oil, but no one cares about oil anymore including the Arabs who need Israel more than ever, when their oil is gone. The need Israel not the Palestinians. Wake up. You are in a trance of make believe. I have been watching this back and forth with A123 and you’re total failure in recognizing that there exists two sides to every conflict. Your insistence in portraying Jews and Israel as evil invaders, is proof that you are not honest. What happened in Palestine/ Israel happens thru out the world. India/Pakistan, China Tibet. Religious differences to land claims. One side is not inherently evil.

    You forget in your mythical story telling of the conflict the history of Arabia, which did not belong to the Arabs no fault of the Jews. It belonged to the Ottomans and after that was a grab bag for European Empires who recklessly divided it up. Also no fault of the Jews. During every empire the Jews resided in Palestine continually, bought land from Ottoman Sheiks, lived in Palestine same as Muslims and Christians.
    There were more Arab Muslims than Jews but so what, they both had equal claims and all the coinage, passports etc were written in Hebrew and Arabic.

    When it came time for sovereignty there was a sincere desire to split the land like India and Pakistan for whatever reason did not work out. Wars were fought and the Jews won sovereignty fair and square like all other peoples in the world who fight and win. Your refusal to deal with facts, belies you’re racism.

    It is always useful for people like you to show the map of Arabia and the little sliver of yellow that the Jews have sovereignty over surrounded by 32 Muslim only countries where no Jews are allowed or can even fly over in an airplane. And as far as apartheid watch the video of my favorite Hillel Neur addressing some of your concerns about the rights of the Palestinians.

    Your writing is silly, unintelligent, unaware of the history and facts and a polemic against the Jews only. You are not even a good proponent of the Palestinians who intelligent opposition recgongize the indisputable facts and evidence of the Jewish claims. Come back when you have more interesting and intelligent issues to talk about, but for now you are a two bit tin horn of stupidity and racial hatred. The Arab Muslims in Arabia are a mess and destroy and fight with themselves and their dictators and Mullahs. What is going over there has nothing to do with the Jews. It is a mirage of propaganda.

    What History.
    WATCH: Missing Section of First Temple-era City Wall of Jerusalem Revealed

    The First Temple contained five altars: one at the entrance of the Holy of Holies, two others within the building, a large bronze one before the porch, and a large tiered altar in the courtyard. A huge bronze bowl, or “sea,” in the courtyard was used for the priests’ ablutions. Within the Holy of Holies, two cherubim of olive wood stood with the Ark; this innermost sanctuary was considered the dwelling place of the Divine Presence (Shekhina) and could be entered only by the high priest and only on the Day of Atonement (Yom Kippur).

    The Temple suffered at the hands of Nebuchadrezzar II of Babylonia, who removed the Temple treasures in 604 BCE and 597 BCE and totally destroyed the building in 587/586. This destruction and the deportations of Jews to Babylonia in 586 and 582 were seen as fulfillments of prophecy and, therefore, strengthened Judaic religious beliefs and awakened the hope for the reestablishment of the independent Jewish state.

    Why is Colin Wrong so offensive when it is proven that he is a debauched prevaricator? He has to know that blind panic is an obvious admission of guilt.

    Objective facts prove that the Muslim Authority occupying Judea & Samaria openly embraces Apartheid: (1)

    How Palestinian Leaders Are Deceiving Americans

    The Palestinian Authority does not want the world to know that it has a law that prohibits the sale of property to the Israeli “enemy.”

    In 2018, a PA court sentenced an American-Palestinian to life imprisonment for violating the law. The defendant, Issam Akel, who holds an Israeli ID card in his capacity as a resident of Jerusalem, was accused of attempting to sell property in Jerusalem to Israeli Jews.

    He was sentenced in spite of protests from Israel and the US. Then US Ambassador to Israel David Friedman said that Akel’s incarceration was “antithetical to the values of the US and all those who advocate the cause of peaceful coexistence.” The PA was eventually forced to release Akel in January 2019 under pressure from the US government.

    Akel was lucky to be released because he held an American passport.

    When will the violent Muslim Authority of Mahmoud Abbas renounce Apartheid?

    Twenty-year genetic trail behind Covid’s creation By Neville Hodgkinson July 13, 2021

    https://www.conservativewoman.co.uk/twenty-year-genetic-trail-behind-covids-creation/

    A 20-YEAR trail of patent applications concerning the virus responsible for Covid-19 proves it is neither new nor the result of a jump from animals to humans, an inquiry has been told.

    Instead, the patents show that a natural virus, harmless to humans, was subjected to numerous laboratory modifications which ‘weaponised’ it, such that it could become the basis of a marketing campaign for tests and vaccines which are of questionable value to the public health, but which have proved to be a financial bonanza for drug companies.

    He said that ‘somebody knew something in 2015 and 2016 which gave rise to my favourite quote of this entire pandemic’. This was a statement made by Peter Daszak in 2015, and reported in the National Academies Press on February 12, 2016, in which he declared: ‘We need to increase public understanding of the need for medical counter-measures such as a pan-coronavirus vaccine. A key driver is the media, and the economics will follow the hype. We need to use that hype to our advantage, to get to the real issues. Investors will respond if they see profit at the end of the process.’

    A wide ranging question, I will share my Top 3:

    Virtue #1 — Front Page Complexity

    Dim Trolls do not like words. They also have trouble with simple tasks like “scrolling down”. Unless they come here looking for a specific article, most of the Trolls plague the top two ‘picture’ threads each day.

    Virtue #2 — Author Quality

    Even if you disagree with an author here, odds are they are respectful and at some level rational. Mr. Unz is human and therefore fallible. He has made a couple of grievous errors like Ta卍i The Troll, but they are exceptions rather than the rule.

    Virtue #3 — Trolls to Ignore

    The most brain dead Muslim posters intentionally offend Christians & Jews in an attempt to draw outrage. Truly incoherent, mostly but not entirely Islamic, rage posting can be replaced inoffensive grey bars. See my sample list below [MORE].

    You also have the option to leave truly comedic flailers unblocked. Laughing at a frequent poster in this thread, Colin Obviously Wrong, is like having a free comedy channel. He has to grasp that everyone here is laughing at him, yet he continues to amuse with his antics.

    Everyone serious — Christian, Muslim, & Jew — understands that Jerusalem is not holy to Islam. The Quran does not name Jerusalem, and there are at least two huge, obvious impossiblities with the Islamic fabrication:

    -1- Muhammad died before his Colonial Jihad reached Jerusalem. It cannot mark the Furthest or Westernmost place he reached. It has to refer to a Muslim Settlement with a “Mosque on a Hill” that existed while Muhammad was alive. Roman records are 100% reliable for buildings on military fortifications. There is a 0% chance that there was a Mosque on the Temple Mount.

    Romans were understandably much less diligent about “uninteresting” things buried during construction. The Western Wall is believed to be the Roman construct that is closest to the site of Solomon’s Temple. Anyone claiming that it actually “is” part of the temple is a Muslim Taqiyya deceiver setting up a straw man.

    -2- The Christians & Jews of Jerusalem were in abject fear of the oncoming Jihadi killers, thieves, and rapists at the time of the Colonial Prophet Muhammad’s “Night Flight”. To accept the Muslim Settler Myth one has to believe:

        • A Flaming Horse flew over Infidels to the Temple Mount.
        • A previously non-existent Flaming Mosque erupted and became a permanent building on the Temple Mount.
        • Infidels were so oblivious to Flaming, flying horses and spontaneous Flaming mosque appearances that they did not notice.

    Be honest… al’Aqsa is in the wrong place.

    If anything in the “Night Flight” myth was even vaguely related to Jerusalem the Infidel account of Revelations would have Five Horseman — Death, War, Flaming Muhammad, Famine, and Plague.

    Once Islam accepts objective truth… Muslim Decolonization from a city that is *not* holy to Islam becomes 100% honorable.

    I wasn’t aware of the footage or any controversy. After fiddling around with your link I have only made sense of the long raw footage video and I can’t see anything surprising. It is of interest that some apparently intelligent people, like Iris, judged by contributions on other threads (I assume the same Iris), persists in a bizarre story of nuclear explosions on 9/11.

    Douglas Reed, The Controversy of Zion, Chapter 12:

    The Light and the Shadow

    Before Jerusalem fell in 70 AD two bands of travellers passed through its gates. The disciples bore a new message to mankind, for Christianity had been born. The Pharisees, foreseeing the fate which they had brought on Jerusalem, removed to a new headquarters from which (as from Babylon of yore) the ruling sect might exercise command over “the Jews,” wherever in the world they lived.

    These two small groups of travellers were the vanguard of parties of light and of darkness which, like a man and his shadow, have gone ever since through the centuries, and ever westward.

    The crisis of “the West” today traces directly back to that departure from doomed Jerusalem nineteen centuries ago, for the two groups bore into the West ideas that could never be reconciled. One had to prevail over the other, sooner or later, and the great bid for victory of the destructive idea is being witnessed in our generation.

    [MORE]

    In the centuries between the story of the West was always, in essentials, that of the struggle between the two ideas. When “the Law” according to the Levites and Pharisees was in the ascendant, the West made slaves of men, brought heretics before an inquisition, put apostates to death, and yielded to primitive visions of master-racehood; thus the Twentieth Century was the time of the worst backsliding in the West. When the West made men and nations free, established justice between them, set up the right of fair and open trial, repudiated master-racehood and acknowledged the universal fatherhood of God, it followed the teaching of him who had come to “fulfill the Law.”

    The Romans, when they took Jerusalem, struck medals with the inscription, “Judaea devicta, Judaea capta.” This was a premature paean; Jerusalem might be ruined and Judea be empty of Jews, but the ruling sect was free and victorious. Its opponents around the temple had been swept away by the conqueror and it was already established in its new “centre,” to which it had withdrawn before the fall of the city.

    The Pharisees were as supreme in this new citadel as the Levites once in Babylon, but in the outer world they espied a new enemy. The sect which believed that the Messiah had appeared, and called itself Christian, did not acknowledge this enmity; on the contrary, its ruling tenet was “love your enemies.” But as the first tenet of the Pharisaic law was “hate your enemies,” this was in itself a deliberate affront and challenge to the elders in their retreat.

    They saw from the start that the new religion would have to be destroyed if their “Law” were to prevail, and they were not deterred by the warning voices which (at this juncture as on all earlier and later occasions) were heard within their own ranks; for instance, Gamaliel’s words when the high priest and council were about to have Peter and John scourged for preaching in the temple: “Consider well what you are about to do. If this be the work of men, it will soon fall to nothing; but if it be the work of God you cannot destroy it.” The majority o the Pharisees felt strong enough, in their own manmade Law, to “destroy it,” and if necessary to work for centuries at that task.

    Thus the Pharisees, when they left the surviving Judeans to their fate and set up their new headquarters at Jamnia (still in Palestine), took their dark secrets of power over men into a world different from any before it.

    Previously their tribal creed had been one among many tribal creeds. Blood vengeance had been the rule among all men and clans. The neighbouring “heathen” might have been alarmed by the especial fierceness and vindictiveness of the Judaic creed, but had not offered anything much more enlightened. From this time on, however, the ruling sect was confronted by a creed which directly controverted every tenet of their own “Law,” as white controverts black. Moreover, this new idea in the world, by the manner and place of its birth, was forever a rebuke to themselves.

    The Pharisees in their stronghold prepared to vanquish this new force that had risen in the world. Their task was larger than that of the Levites in Babylon. The temple was destroyed and Jerusalem was depopulated. The tribe of Judah had long since been broken up; now the race of Judeans was dissolving. There remained a “Jewish nation,” composed of people of many admixtures of blood, who were spread all over the known world, and had to be kept united by the power of the tribal idea and of the “return” to a land “promised” to a “special people”; this dispersed nation had also to be kept convinced of its destructive mission among the nations where it dwelt.

    “The Law,” in the form that was already becoming known to the outer world, could not again be amended, or new historical chapters be added to it. Moreover, Jesus had addressed his rebukes specifically to the falsification of these “commandments of men” by the scribes. He had been killed but not controverted or even (as the growth of the Christian sect showed) given his quietus. Thus his arraignment of the Law stood and was so conclusive that not even the Pharisees could expect to convince anybody simply by calling him a transgressor of it.

    Nevertheless, the Law needed constant reinterpretation and application to the events of changing times, so that the “special people” could always be shown that each and every event, however paradoxical at first sight, was in fact one of Jehovan fulfilment. The Pharisees at Jamnia invoked once more their claim to possess the oral secrets of God and began, under it, to reinterpret the “statutes and commandments” so that these could be shown to apply to Christianity. This was the origin of the Talmud, which in effect is the anti-Christian extension of the Torah.

    The Talmud became, in the course of centuries, “the fence around the Law”; the outer tribal stockade around the inner tribal stockade. The significance lies in the period at which it was begun: when Judea was gone, when “the people” were scattered among all nations, and when a new religion was taking shape which taught that God was the father of all men, not merely the patron of a selected tribe.

    Looking back from this distance of time, the task which the Pharisees undertook looks hopeless, for the wish to become part of mankind must surely have had strong appeal to a scattered people.

    The Pharisees, as the event has proved, were successful in their huge undertaking. The Talmud was effective in interposing a fence between the Jews and the forces of integration released by Christianity.

    Two examples from our present time illustrate the effect of the Talmud, many centuries after its compilation. The brothers Thoreau in their books give the diligent student some rare glimpses behind the Talmudic walls; in one book they depict the little Jewish boy in Poland who had been taught to spit, quite mechanically, as he passed the wayside Calvary and to say, “Cursed be thou who created another religion.” In 1953, in New York, a young missionary of the Moravian Church in Jerusalem described the seizure by the Zionists of the Moravian leper home there, called “The Jesus Mission”; their first act was to putty over the name “Jesus” which for more than a hundred years had been inscribed above its door.

    Such incidents as these (and the ban on the mention of the name Jesus) derive directly from the teaching of the Talmud, which in effect was another “New Law” with a specifically anti-Christian application. For this reason the next period in the story of Zion is best described as that of the Talmudists, the former ones being those of the Pharisees and of the Levites.

    While the Pharisaic Talmudists, in their new academy at Jamnia, worked on the new Law, the tidings of Jesus’s life and lesson spread through the territories of Rome.

    A Pharisee greatly helped to spread them; Saul of Tarsus set out from Jerusalem (before its fall) to exterminate heretics in Damascus and before he arrived there became a follower of Christ. He preached to Jew and Gentile alike, until he was prevented, and he told the Jews, “It was necessary that the word of God should first have been spoken to you; but seeing that ye put it from you and judge yourselves worthy of everlasting life, we turn to the Gentiles.”

    Dr. Kastein says of Saul, named Paul, that “he made all those whom he persuaded to believe in his prophecy renegades in the widest sense, whether they were Jew or Gentile.”

    However, what Paul (and others) said was in fact inevitable at that point in time, because men everywhere were groping towards the universal God and turned to the teaching of Jesus as growing things to the light. Possibly this impulse in men was also the reason why Jesus had to appear among the Judeans; the Judaic creed was tribalism in its most fanatical form, even at that time, and, as every action produces its reaction, the counter-idea was bound to appear where the pressure was greatest.

    This was a fateful moment for that great area, then little known or populated, which today is called The West. Had not the disciples turned their faces westward, the term, “the West,” and that which it denotes, might never have come about.

    What is called “Western civilization” cannot be conceived without Christianity. During the nineteen hundred years which followed the death of Jesus the West improved so greatly that it left the rest of the world behind. In material things its advance was so great that at the time when this book was written it was on the brink of the conquest of space; it was about to open the universe to exploration by man. But that was much the lesser part of its achievement.

    Its greatest improvement was in the field of the spirit and of man’s behaviour towards man. The West established men’s right to public charge and open trial, or release, (a right which was again in jeopardy in the Twentieth Century) and this was the greatest advance in the entire history of man; on the survival or destruction of this achievement depends his future.

    The shadow that followed the disciples out of the gates of Jerusalem, before the Romans entered, also followed Christianity into the West and the Talmudic sect dogged it during all those centuries. The West, in the Twentieth Century, became the scene of the struggle between the nations which had risen with Christianity and the sect dedicated to the destructive idea.

    Not only the West is involved in its issue. About five hundred years after the life of Jesus the instinctive impulse of men to seek one God produced another challenge to Talmudic racialism, and this time it came from among the Semitic masses. The Arabs, too, attained to the concept of one God of all men.

    Muhammad (dismissed by Dr. Kastein (racist Yid, 5ds) as “a half-educated Bedouin”), like Saul on the road to Damascus, had a vision of God. His teaching in many ways resembled that of Jesus. He held Jesus to have been, like Abraham and Moses, a prophet of God (not the Messiah). He regarded himself as the successor of Moses and Jesus and as the prophet of God, whom he called Allah. There was but one God, Allah, the creator of mankind, and Allah was not the tribal god of the Arabs, but the God of all men.

    This religion, like Christianity, taught no hatred of other religions. Muhammad showed only reverence for Jesus and his mother (who are both the subjects of profane derision in Talmudic literature).

    However, Muhammad held the Jews to be a destructive force, self-dedicated. The Koran says of them, “Oft as they kindle a beacon fire for war, shall God quench it. And their aim will be to abet disorder on the earth; but God loveth not the abettors of disorder.” All down the centuries the wisest men spoke thus of the tribal creed and the sect, until the Twentieth Century of our era, when public discussion of this question was virtually suppressed.

    Thus was Islam born, and it spread over the meridianal parts of the known world as Christianity spread over the West and Buddhism, earlier, over the East. Great streams began to move, as if towards a confluence at some distant day, for these universal religions are in no major tenet as oil and water, and in the repudiation of master-racehood and the destructive idea they agree.

    Christianity and Islam spread out and embraced great masses of mankind; the impulse that moved in men became clear. Far behind these universal religions lay Judaism, in its tribal enclosure, jealously guarded by the inner sect.

    In the Twentieth Century this powerful sect was able to bring the masses of Christendom and Islam to the verge of destructive battle with each other. If the present generation sees that clash, the spectacle will be that of one great universal religion contending with another for the purpose of setting up the creed of the “master-race.”

    Towards this strange denouement, nineteen centuries ahead, the two parties of men set out from Jerusalem long ago

    This is such horse shit. Fantasize away. Day dream all you want. But who the fuck is Douglas Reed but a fantasist. He is not a religious scholar or an historian. He is no body who writes fiction so Jew haters can wet themselves.

    And you should know Shlomo right? You can barely read and write. You cannot put two sentences together with your Yidy, Yid ,Yidy. Are you a white guy Shlomo? I bet your a darkie. Here is what Reed said about dark colored people. He thought them low life Schomo. He liked the invasions of whites colonization you so complain about the Jews in Palestine. You hypocrite dog. Why not read what Reed thought of black?

    In the 1960s Reed was outspoken in his opposition to the decolonization of Africa. In his The Battle for Rhodesia (1966) he explicitly compared decolonization to the above-mentioned appeasement of Hitler; he strongly supported Ian Smith’s unilateral declaration of independence from the United Kingdom, arguing that Smith’s Rhodesia had to be defended as “the last bulwark against the Third World War”, just as Czechoslovakia should have been defended against Hitler in 1938.

    Reed died in Durban in 1976. Two years later The Controversy of Zion was finally brought to print, the manuscript having lain on top of a wardrobe in Reed’s home for over two decades.[5]

    Richard Thurlow wrote that Reed was one of the first antisemitic writers to deny Hitler’s extermination of the Jews.[6] In a review of Reed’s Lest We Regret written in 1943, George Orwell compared Reed, with his unheeded early warnings about the Nazis, to the Greek mythological figure Cassandra. Orwell wrote that Reed dismissed the Nazis’ persecution of German Jews, and even the pogroms, as just “propaganda.” Reed cited a story in the Daily Herald about Germans in football clothes playing football with 500 Jewish babies in a football stadium near Kiev “bouncing and kicking them around the arena.” This story had also been dismissed in the New Statesman as “complete fabrication” and “nonsense.”[7] Orwell summed-up Reed’s book as: “the dominant notes being back to the land, more emigration, down with the Reds and—above all—down with the Jews.” Orwell warned that Reed had an “easy journalistic style”, stating he was a “persuasive writer” through which he was “capable of doing a lot of harm among the large public for which he caters.” Orwell compared Reed’s outlook to that of the anti-Hitlerian Nazi dissident Otto Strasser and the British fascist leader Oswald Mosley.[8]

    The Controversy of Zion, Douglas Reed

    Chapter 2 • The End of Israel

    About five hundred years before the event of 458 BC, or nearly three thousand years ago today, the brief and troubled association between Judah and the Israelites (“the children of Israel”) came to an end. Israel rejected the chosen people creed which was beginning to take shape in Judah and went its own way. (The adoption of the name “Israel” by the Zionist state which was set up in Palestine in 1948 was transparent false pretence).

    The events which led to the short-lived, unhappy union covered earlier centuries. The mythological or legendary period of Moses was followed by one in Canaan during which “Israel” was the strong, cohesive and recognizable entity, the northern confederation of the ten tribes. Judah (to which the very small tribe of Benjamin attached itself) was a petty chiefdom in the south.

    Judah, from which today’s Zionism comes down, was a tribe of ill repute. Judah sold his brother Joseph, the most beloved son of Jacob-called-Israel, to the Ishmaelites for twenty pieces of silver (as Judas, the only Judean among the disciples, much later betrayed Jesus for thirty pieces of silver), and then founded the tribe in incest, (Genesis 37-38). The priestly scribes who wrote this Scriptural account centuries afterwards had made themselves the masters of Judah and as they altered the oral tradition, whenever it suited them, the question prompts itself: why were they at pains to preserve, or possibly even to insert, this attribution of incestuous beginnings and a treacherous nature to the very people who, they said, were the chosen of God? The thing is mysterious, like much else in the Levitical Scriptures, and only the inner sect could supply an answer.

    Anyway, those Scriptures and today’s authorities agree about the separateness of “Israel” and “Judah.” In the Old Testament Israel is often called “the house of Joseph,” in pointed distinction from “the house of Judah.” The Jewish Encyclopaedia says, ‘‘Joseph and Judah typify two distinct lines of descent” and adds (as already cited) that Judah was “in all likelihood a non-Israelitish tribe.” The Encyclopaedia Britannica says that Judaism developed long after the Israelites had merged themselves with mankind, and that the true relationship of the two peoples is best expressed in the phrase, “The Israelites were not Jews.” Historically, Judah was to survive for a little while and to bring forth Judaism, which begat Zionism, (which begat hell on earth – 5ds).

    The Controversy of Zion, Douglas Reed

    Chapter 14 • The Movable Government

    Then came the event which has produced such violent results in our time: the Talmudic government moved into Christianized Europe and established itself among peoples to whom the nature of its dogma and its methods were strange and even incomprehensible. This led, in the course of many centuries, to the recurrent clash of the alien ambition and creed against native interest, which our century is again experiencing.

    The nature of Westerners (more especially in the northern latitudes) is to be candid, to declare purposes, and to use words to express intention, and Christianity developed these native traits. The force which appeared among them was of the opposite character, oriental, infinitely subtle, secretive, conspiratorial, and practised in the use of language to disguise real purposes. Therein lay its greatest strength in the encounter with the West.

    The removal to Europe came about through the Islamic conquests. The Arabs, under the Prophet’s banner, drove the Romans from Palestine. By this means the native inhabitants of Palestine, who had inhabited it some two thousand years before the first Hebrew tribes entered, became the rulers of their own country, and remained so for nine hundred years (until 1517, when the Turks conquered it). An instructive comparison may be made between the Islamic and the Judaic treatment of captives:

    The Caliph’s order to the Arab conquerors in 637 AD was, “You shall not act treacherously, dishonestly, commit any excess or mutilation, kill any child or old man; cut or burn down palms or fruit trees, kill any sheep, cow or camel, and shall leave alone those whom you find devoting themselves to worship in their cells.” Jehovah’s order, according to Deuteronomy 20.16, is, “Of the cities of these people, which the Lord thy God doth give thee for an inheritance, thou shall save alive nothing that breatheth.” [Yahweh loves the murdering of children, the old, olive trees, sheep, and more. The smell of blood and burnt flesh in the morning will bring blessings. 5ds]

    From Palestine, Islam then spread its frontiers right across North Africa, so that the great mass of Jews came within the boundaries of the same external authority. Next, Islam turned towards Europe and invaded Spain. Therewith the shadow of Talmudic Zionism fell across the West. The Moorish conquest was “supported with both men and money” by the Jews, who as camp-followers were treated with remarkable favour by the conquerors, city after city being handed to their control! The Koran itself said, “Their aim will be to abet disorder on the earth”; the Islamic armies certainly facilitated this aim.

    Another suggestion for shaming the great and good (and especially celebrity historians) into coming out for truth..

    Four days ago I emailed [Sir] Simon Schama at

    sms53@columbia.edu

    and

    simon.schama@gmail.com

    with a long challenge to get the Leo Frank story right and rescue it from liars. It was perhaps over long and wordy but established my philosemitic credentials and lamented that like adolescent girls with body image issues sufferering from anorexia nervosa Jews who were conscious of not being as smart as a Jew should be displayed the kind of combination of lack of ssruple and stupidity that the latest team for exonerating Frank exhibit. I invited him to use his authority, and research, to put an end to it.

    The reason I had him in mind was that I had been prevented by the FT moderator of comments from referring to previous UR material on the case when I sought, politely, to draw Schama’s attention to it after he had written of the Frank case as illustrative of American anti-semitism.

    I have had no response and no indication of non delivery. I therefore suggest that you proffer him the article and book for review. I would suggest that you might at least make it difficult for him not to reply by suggesting and asking about his expectations for a fee, pointing out that you, though quite capable of upsetting fellow Jews when they deserved to be upset , wanted nothing more than to counter meretricious deviousness, and that you hoped Schama would recognise this as a case where Jewish honour was at stake and, very likely being endangered by some very stupid people.

    Khamenei looks weaker by they day. He issued an edict saying that Iranians have a right to protest about water. Then his police acted on his instruction: (1)

    IRAN — At Least Three Dead After Police Open Fire on Protesters Demanding Water

    What makes the protests significant is that the Iranian people are making a strong statement about the recently elected government headed by the fanatical jurist Ebrahim Raisi. Raisi is one of the regime’s chief enforcers, having greenlighted thousands of executions during the 1980s. The protesters know his record and what his election means to their chances for any meaningful reforms going forward.

    If sociopath Khamenei cannot control Raisi, what good is he? A leader who is both weak & deranged is a bad combination. Iran will be much better off when its people get rid of the Ayatollahs and their failed revolution.

    Art, you do realize that the annual flu vaccines are less effective than the Covid-19 jabs, right? The CDC website is a bit of a maze, but here’s one example –

    A 2018 study showed that among adults hospitalized with flu, vaccinated patients were 59 percent less likely to be admitted to the ICU than those who had not been vaccinated. Among adults in the ICU with flu, vaccinated patients on average spent 4 fewer days in the hospital than those who were not vaccinated.

    The flu shots are a bit of a guessing game, with scientists trying to predict which strain will be most dominant. There are huge fluctuations in effectiveness, depending on whether they guess right or not.

    According to data from Gaza’s health ministry, some 98,000 people – or just less than five percent of the two million population – have so far received a shot.

    Some 336,300 vaccine doses have also been donated from various countries, including Russia and the United Arab Emirates, as well as through the global COVAX programme.

    “Luxury Beliefs are the latest Status Symbol for Rich Americns”

    https://nypost.com/2019/08/17/luxury-beliefs-are-the-latest-status-symbol-for-rich-americans/

    A former classmate from Yale recently told me “monogamy is kind of outdated” and not good for society. So I asked her what her background is and if she planned to marry.

    She said she comes from an affluent family and works at a well-known technology company. Yes, she personally intends to have a monogamous marriage — but quickly added that marriage shouldn’t have to be for everyone.

    She was raised by a traditional family. She planned on having a traditional family. But she maintained that traditional families are old-fashioned and society should “evolve” beyond them.
    What could explain this?

    In the past, upper-class Americans used to display their social status with luxury goods. Today, they do it with luxury beliefs.

    People care a lot about social status. In fact, research indicates that respect and admiration from our peers are even more important than money for our sense of well-being.

    We feel pressure to display our status in new ways. This is why fashionable clothing always changes. But as trendy clothes and other products become more accessible and affordable, there is increasingly less status attached to luxury goods.

    The upper classes have found a clever solution to this problem: luxury beliefs. These are ideas and opinions that confer status on the rich at very little cost, while taking a toll on the lower class.

    One example of luxury belief is that all family structures are equal. This is not true. Evidence is clear that families with two married parents are the most beneficial for young children. And yet, affluent, educated people raised by two married parents are more likely than others to believe monogamy is outdated, marriage is a sham or that all families are the same.

    ‘Upper-class people don a luxury belief to separate themselves from the lower class’

    [MORE]

    Relaxed attitudes about marriage trickle down to the working class and the poor. In the 1960s, marriage rates between upper-class and lower-class Americans were nearly identical. But during this time, affluent Americans loosened social norms, expressing skepticism about marriage and monogamy.

    This luxury belief contributed to the erosion of the family. Today, the marriage rates of affluent Americans are nearly the same as they were in the 1960s. But working-class people are far less likely to get married. Furthermore, out-of-wedlock birthrates are more than 10 times higher than they were in 1960, mostly among the poor and working class. Affluent people seldom have kids out of wedlock but are more likely than others to express the luxury belief that doing so is of no consequence.

    Another luxury belief is that religion is irrational or harmful. Members of the upper class are most likely to be atheists or non-religious. But they have the resources and access to thrive without the unifying social edifice of religion.

    Places of worship are often essential for the social fabric of poor communities. Denigrating the importance of religion harms the poor. While affluent people often find meaning in their work, most Americans do not have the luxury of a “profession.” They have jobs. They clock in, they clock out. Without a family or community to care for, such a job can feel meaningless.

    Then there’s the luxury belief that individual decisions don’t matter much compared to random social forces, including luck. This belief is more common among many of my peers at Yale and Cambridge than the kids I grew up with in foster care or the women and men I served with in the military. The key message is that the outcomes of your life are beyond your control. This idea works to the benefit of the upper class and harms ordinary people.

    It is common to see students at prestigious universities work ceaselessly and then downplay the importance of tenacity. They perform an “aw, shucks” routine to suggest they just got lucky rather than accept credit for their efforts. This message is damaging. If disadvantaged people believe random chance is the key factor for success, they will be less likely to strive.

    ‘The key message is that the outcomes of your life are beyond your control’

    White privilege is the luxury belief that took me the longest to understand, because I grew up around poor whites. Often members of the upper-class claim that racial disparities stem from inherent advantages held by whites. Yet Asian Americans are more educated, have higher earnings and live longer than whites. Affluent whites are the most enthusiastic about the idea of white privilege, yet they are the least likely to incur any costs for promoting that belief. Rather, they raise their social standing by talking about their privilege.

    In other words, upper-class whites gain status by talking about their high status. When laws are enacted to combat white privilege, it won’t be the privileged whites who are harmed. Poor whites will bear the brunt.

    It’s possible that affluent whites don’t always agree with their own luxury beliefs, or at least have doubts. Maybe they don’t like the ideological fur coat they’re wearing. But if their peers punish them for not sporting it all over town, they will never leave the house without it again.

    Because, like with diamond rings or designer clothes of old, upper-class people don a luxury belief to separate themselves from the lower class. These beliefs, in turn, produce real, tangible consequences for disadvantaged people, further widening the divide. Just as fashionable clothing will soon be outdated, so will today’s fashionable beliefs.

    In the future, expect the upper class to defame even more values — including ones they hold dear — in their quest to gain top-dog status.
