The digital giants have taken over the world. Nobody has ever amassed this much power. Hitler would die of envy if shown the greatness of Google. Huxley and Orwell’s protagonists could only dream of what Bezos and Gates do. The latter overthrew the US President and installed one they prefer, and for good reason. The combined net worth of the top 100 ultra-rich people in the US has skyrocketed by $195 billion since Biden took office, according to Bloomberg’s calculations. These giants control the minds of billions. Nations hock their lands and industries to purchase their patent medicines. These giants know our faces, our names, all about us, even the cells we are made of, down to the last protein. Gods have been defeated, gentle Christ and mighty Sabaoth, not to mention angry Allah. Is that a thing of which it is said, ‘See, this is new’? (Eccl 1:10) No, my jaundiced ancestor was right — it has already been done in the ages before us.

Once upon a time, the giants almost pushed the gods off Olympus. Apollodorus tells us that the gods could not win, until they remembered the oracle that the giants would only be defeated if a mortal man was to help the gods. Only Man can facilitate the gods’ victory over the giants, divined the Greeks in their Gigantomachy, just as the Christians knew only a Son of Man could defeat Death. When the giants had almost defeated the gods, a mortal man, Heracles, stepped forward and snatched victory from the jaws of defeat. Now we are in dire need of a brave mortal to tackle giants. If there is no Heracles, anyone will do; but the giants have to be defeated. And indeed, unlikely Giant Killers have stepped forward.

The uprising began in rebellious Moscow, where the city arbitration tribunal demanded that Google restore a deleted YouTube account or pay billions of dollars in fines. Impossible, you’d say — Google is free to do whatever they want. They shadow-banned Unz.com; its brother giant Twitter banned Trump; there is no way to overturn their decisions, for such companies are private, and private property is sacred — otherwise it’s Communism and Gulag; they can do whatever they want, and their smart lawyers have already included their right to unplug you in every one-click contract agreement.

Yet Russia isn’t all that different from any other Western nation. Until this happened, the Russian legal system had refused to consider claims against the tech giants. Russian law did not allow for it. It was enough for the giants to stipulate that all claims should go to London or to some other tame court of their preference for the Russians to meekly submit. However, the giants overreached themselves when they blocked this avenue to sue them in Western jurisdiction for many Russians. The Russians responded by creating a new law that established the priority of their national law, and required the courts and tribunals to accept and judge the cases if there is no way to sue in the agreed Western jurisdiction.

This new law was applied by the Moscow Arbitration Tribunal after Google, in July 2020, deleted the account of Tsargrad, a Christian conservative TV channel and news agency belonging to Konstantin Malofeev, an unusual Russian digital media lord. Slate magazine made a profile of the man some years ago, while he was still planning to create Tsargrad. Slate grossly exaggerated Malofeev’s proximity and importance to Putin, for he is an outsider, but otherwise it gives you the general idea. Malofeev had been sanctioned by US and EU authorities in 2014, but the account of the media company he is the main owner of was blocked six years later, in the summer of 2020. Tsargrad had over one million subscribers when suddenly, and without warning, YouTube deleted its account. At first, they explained their action by asserting that Tsargrad was “breaking the community rules’, as always. Later on, Google claimed they blocked Tsargrad because its owner had been sanctioned.

The Moscow tribunal rejected both claims. (Read here the tribunal decision in full, English translation comes after Russian version) It stated that Google didn’t prove Tsargrad broke community rules; even had that been the case, Google would have had to give six months’ warning before breaking the contract. As for sanctions, the Tribunal ruled that US and EU sanctions are a part of public law of those particular countries, and cannot be applied in Russia; Google has to restore their account or suffer legal consequences.

The consequences are financial, and exponential. For the first week of non-compliance, Google would have to pay a little over one thousand dollars, nothing to speak about there. But afterwards, the fines double each week, and in half a year’s time Google would have to pay over $70 billion! Exponential fines can be very threatening. Can the Russians make Google pay? Yes! Google (google.ru) has a few billions on their accounts in Russia, all eminently liable to be seized. On the other hand, if Google restores the blocked account, they won’t have to pay a cent. Stories related to this historical decision are filed here (in Russian).

Anyway, Malofeev had been sanctioned by the US and EU over six years ago, when he was allegedly supporting the Russian rebels in Donbas (he says he ran a humanitarian mission). Why, all of a sudden, did Google freeze his account in 2020?

ORDER IT NOW

There is an honest answer to this question, but Google’s cagey lawyers would never admit to it. In 2020, encouraged by their meteoric rise to the top of the pandemic-troubled world, Google and the other giants unleashed their might to erase ideologically unacceptable (for them) media. They carried out a large-scale ideological cleansing of pro-family, Trump-friendly, conservative, Christian sites and accounts, and of sites that didn’t support the paradigm of gay and trans, anti-male, anti-white woke propaganda. The sites that doubted the official Covid narrative were also banned or shadow-banned. They forbid their clients to trust in God, summed it up a Russian observer. The timing of the cleansing was connected with the US Presidential elections of November 2020. The giants planned to remove Trump and install Biden by hook or by crook. Accounts that were likely to disagree with this massive fraud planned by the giants were deleted. Didn’t this constitute meddling in the important elections? For sure, but it was the giants, not the Russians, who meddled, and they even had FBI on their payroll.

Not only did American accounts suffer in this purge; the giants cleansed Russian accounts, too. Though there aren’t many Russian-reading voters in the US, the giants didn’t want to take any chances. They planned and executed probably the first complete global takeover of discourse in human history. Tsargrad was one of the smothered media voices.

Konstantin Malofeev, the Tsargrad owner, fits the proscribed profile down to a tee. He is conservative, even radical-conservative, a church-going family man and father of three, who does not support LGBTQ+. He is in his forties; he’s a strong admirer of Donald Trump; he followed Trump’s model all the way to marrying off his daughter to a Jewish oligarch’s son. (He is also a tycoon by his own right.) Malofeev modelled his media after Trump’s preferred Fox News, and even hired Jack Hanick, a founding producer for Fox News. His Tsargrad media outlet has been described as “Russian Fox News”; so he is a wannabe Russian Donald Trump. Malofeev is not a hugely popular figure, but nor is Navalny. He is radical-conservative politically, but at the same time is all for a social welfare state, for help to families. He thinks Covid is a creation of Fort Detrick, just like our Ron Unz says. (This is a widely shared view in Russia; last week it was expressed by Mr Volodin, the Parliament speaker who said the new coronavirus could be a product of a leak from a US laboratory.) Malofeev is supportive of Vladimir Putin, though Putin is too liberal and moderate for him. He works with Alexander Dugin, the prominent Russian philosopher who also thinks Putin is not Putin enough. Dugin was present at the press conference regarding the Tsargrad victory over Google, and he gave a fervent short speech calling upon mankind to remove the usurper Giants and regain freedom. I could hear the footsteps of History echoing at this event; Russia was rebelling against the established order again, just as she did in 1917, over a hundred years ago!

Malofeev offered Trump his support in regaining access to the discourse snatched by the Giants. In his touching letter to Trump (read it here in full, the English version comes after Russian) he wrote: “Mr President, it is clear to me that the US elections were stolen from you and your voters, and that Big Tech’s efforts to repress this information is both a moral outrage and a prosecutable crime. The death of democracy in America hurts every country in the world, Russia included. I, and many other Russians are ready to help you in your fight for free speech any way we can. Use our court system, and seriously consider my offer to partner in building future platforms. Let’s join forces and decisively go on the offensive against the free-speech haters in Big Tech. Let’s build superior free-speech platforms for people in all countries.”

At the press conference, he called for Trump to accept his assistance in his fight against the giants. Mr Malofeev is a maverick, by Russian or by any standards, but so was Trump. Anyway, who but a maverick would enter a melee against fearsome giants? Only Real Men are able to do it. Though my own views are very far from theirs, I’d say God bless anybody who would save free speech from being smothered by Giants.

P.S. Iran Revelation

For a long time, our readers have wondered why President Putin is so friendly with Israel. A possible explanation was provided last week by Iran’s Foreign Minister Mohammad Javad Zarif. His seven-hour-long recording (allegedly made for the Oral History project) had been leaked by a Farsi émigré site based in London. In this leak (it had been acknowledged by Mr Zarif who said he was quoted out of context, while Zarif opponents allege he himself leaked it) Zarif reveals that, in his view, Russia does not want Iran to normalise its relations with the West and is trying to undermine the Vienna talks. As long as the US is out of the nuclear deal and Iran continues to be sanctioned, Tehran remains in the Russian sphere of influence, he said. In the al-Jazeera report, Russia actively tried to undermine the nuclear deal, the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA), because she would not benefit from Iran enjoying normalised ties with the West, according to the diplomat. “Russia doesn’t benefit if our ties with the West are normalised”, he said.

Zarif also offered a very different version of Russia’s entry into the Syrian war. The late General Soleimani, who was assassinated by the Americans last year, visited Russia in 2015 and met with President Vladimir Putin to discuss intervening in Syria’s civil war in support of President Bashar al-Assad. It was previously accepted that Putin had been talked into the war by Soleimani. Zarif provides a completely different account, saying it was Putin who convinced Soleimani to bring Iranian troops to Syria, rather than Soleimani convincing Putin to intervene. “Putin entered the war with air power, but also brought Iran into the war with ground forces. Until then we had no ground forces there,” Zarif said.

Zarif and Lavrov

If this conspiratorial interpretation is right, it would explain Russia’s positive attitude to Israel, for no country and no politician has done as much as Israel’s Netanyahu to keep Iran estranged from the US. But for Israel’s opposition, Iran might have forfeited the Axis of Resistance in the Obama era. So Israel should be cherished by Russia, indeed! Likewise, Israel was loved by the US military industries as her might inspired Arabs to buy American hardware.

Simple-minded Jews explain the US drift to make up with Iran by the influence of John Kerry. “Kerry’s daughter Vanessa is married to an Iranian national and physician. His best man at the ceremony was the son of Mohammad Javad Zarif, Iran’s Minister of Foreign Affairs. Zarif was also Kerry’s chief counterpart in the nuclear deal negotiations. Cozy crew! Look no further why Kerry hates Israel”, says Investment Watch Blog. They would be furious if their political positions were explained by having their relatives in Israel! It seems that some American patriots (like our colleague Philip Giraldi) would prefer to downgrade the special relations with Israel and to upgrade relations with Iran. Washington lawyer Reed Rubinstein, in the Jerusalem Post, suggests that the Biden administration “permits or supports a new intifada if Israel refuses to accede quietly to a new Iran deal or takes ‘unapproved’ steps to defend itself against the Iranian threat.” It is one possible reading. “This would be a catastrophic mistake and horrific breach of trust” – whines the lawyer. What ‘trust’, buddy? International politics is a cutthroat business. Perhaps Iran will cross over to the US, while the Jews will move their sympathies to Russia.

ORDER IT NOW

However, one should not make too much out of the partial leak of Zarif’s talk. It could mean that Zarif would like to play Gorbachev on the Islamic Republic and bring Tehran into the Pax Americana. Then he would have invented such a story implying that Iranians would make peace with the US on Washington’s conditions but for perfidious Putin. And in observed reality, Russians were always publicly supportive of JCPOA, and approving of Iran making peace with Israel and the US.

Jews and plotters

Lurashenko and Putin
Lurashenko and Putin

In the recent plot against Belarus President Lukashenko, there is a curious detail totally missing in press reports. The trump evidence of the plot is a tape purporting to be a recording of a conversation between a Belarusian general and the chief plotter, lawyer Yuri Zenkovich, who has Belarusian and American citizenships. In Belarus, Zenkovich was an opposition activist, a well-known member of the Belarusian Popular Front. He left for the US in the mid-2000’s, where he began to build his career as a lawyer, said the US Embassy. The general apparently was used to trap the lawyer, who actively looked for potential accomplices in the Belarus Army. In the tape (5:05), the lawyer tries to convince the general to join the plotters by saying: “I am supported by US Jewish capital. I have excellent relations with the American Jewish Committee. This is an NGO headed by three hundred of the wealthiest Jewish families of America. It is the Jewish Lobby of America”.

On the American Jewish Committee site there is a quotation “American Jewish Committee is the dean of American Jewish organizations.” — THE NEW YORK TIMES. We have no idea whether the AJC or its members offered their support to Mr Zenkovich. Belarus’ KGB chief offers us the comforting point of view that the plotters were rather plotting to swindle their supporters and donors and to spend it on “loose women and vodka”. Perhaps. But it is funny – the best way to convince a military general is to tell him rich American Jews support the cause. I couldn’t find an AJC response to this accusation; the plot was never referred to in the US media.

    It is not necessary for YOU to manipulate Zarif’s interview given for the Iranian oral history project where suppose to be secret, to justify Putin’s love for Israel and Jewish mafia. Everyone knows that the triangle who voted for erection of Israel in Palestine were the enemy of Muslims, US – Britain – Russia.

    Russia always, always, always cooperated with the west against Muslim. Russia also had a role in 1953 Coup against Mosaddeq to bring him down. Stalin helped Britain and US to bring Mosaddeq down by ordering Tudeh party members, fifth column, remain at home and do not go into the street in support of Mosaddeq.

    Stalin even tried to steal more territory from Iran, Azerbaijan, in 1945, but could not do it.
    Please don’t manipulate Zarif’s words, because this part that Russia cannot be trusted is the opinion of the majority of Iranians since they know the dark history of Russia in Iran which continues to the present.

    Remember what Khomeini said: neither the west, nor the east

    Have you ever asked yourself why did Russia cooperated with criminals and voted for sanctions against Iranian children more than 4 times to please the west and Israel to receive few bones as concessions?

    Have you ever thought about the fact that Russia started working on Bushehr nuclear power in 1995, but did not finished until 2011, a lot of delays. In addition, Russia cooperated with the west and Israel to break the agreement of selling S-300 to Iran despite the fact that Iran paid for them and expected delivery.
    These are few points to remember that why Iranians cannot trust Russia, it is not limited to Zarif.

    I would ask people to read the following to understand zarif’s concern:

    https://www.atlanticcouncil.org/blogs/iransource/does-russia-really-want-a-us-return-to-the-iran-deal/

    [The Kremlin has also backed European efforts to save the Joint Comprehensive Plan of Action (JCPOA) since the US’s unilateral withdrawal from the deal in 2018. Below the surface, however, Russia’s views may be more complicated and ambivalent. Indeed, Moscow could both gain and lose from President-elect Joe Biden successfully salvaging the JCPOA.

    After Trump withdrew from the JCPOA though, Iran was forced to turn to China and Russia for more of its trade. In principle, both Beijing and Moscow expressed sympathy with Tehran, but neither offered significant assistance to the Islamic Republic in practice. As a matter of fact, Chinese and Russian banks reduced their transactions with Iran rather than risk loss of business in the US.

    Thus, Biden’s intent to return to the JCPOA has mixed implications for Moscow.]

    Google is Bolshevik Jew tyranny controlled by two Jews or recent Russian-resident ancestry.

    The “Jewish Terror” inflicted upon Russia by Bolshevik Jews beginning in 1917 which we’ve been deceived into calling “The Russian Revolution” resulted in the Jew led slaughter of 67 million Christian Russians as tallied by Solzhenitsyn who also provided the “JT” label.

    The quoted paragraph coupled with the author’s apparent Jew name dissuades from scanning this article any further.

    Not even inclined to identify the slight-of-hand deception nearly certain to be contained herein.

    Zarif strongly believes that Russia did not want Iran to enrich uranium. Israel is the country trying very hard to deny Iran of her right to enrichment under NPT. The country that should not have the right to enrich uranium is ISRAEL not Iran. Israel is not signatory to NPT. In fact the west must help Iran with its enrichment program according to the treaty. Why doesn’t Russia deny Israel of enrichment? Why does Russia demand from Israel to stop enrichment? Russia can offer Israel fuel for ever.

    February 27, 2005: Russia and Iran conclude a nuclear fuel supply agreement in which Russia would provide fuel for the Bushehr reactor it is constructing and Iran would return the spent nuclear fuel to Russia.
    The problem is that Iran CANNOT afford to trust anyone for its fuel because any time the west, including Russia, can stop providing Iran fuel to force Iran towards certain direction, where has happened in the past. The past is a good reason not to trust anyone including Russia.

    Besides Iran like other country under NPT has a RIGHT to enrichment where the West including Russia does not want Iran to have. This is ridiculous knowing that Iran has spent more than $100 billion dollars to protect its RIGHT, yet the west, including Russia, deny Iran of its right because ALL of them do not want to see a developed and rich Iran with her own resources, human capital and determination to reach its goal.

    Zarif in his interview said: we came into agreement with US that Iran can enrich Uranium at
    Natanz for Bushehr reactor in 2015. But Russia injected two obstacles into the case :

    1- Russia insisting that she will provides Iran with the fuel ‘forever’.

    2- Russia seriously told Iran that Russia WILL NOT give Iran a license that iran can use
    her own fuel from Natanz for Bushehr reactor!!!

    Why is Russia less cooperative that US? Why does Russia denies Iran its right to enrich?

    No country under NPT can afford to rely on another country for fuel to run its xpensive reactor to produce electricity. Especially Iran, a targeted country.

    I can believe this assessment about Russia, but other points he makes I cannot accept, knowing that Zarif left Iran for the US when he was very young. He studied and took responsibilties in New york, for over 25 years. Therefore, he is very western oriented. Rouhani and his cabinet members, the reformists, are corrupt and his economic advisor are west educated and servant of the neoliberalism that neocons offer at the Chicago school,.
    Thus, their position in the society is very weak and they cannot be elected in the coming election in June 2021.
    Thus these traitors, thieves, and corrupt ‘politicians’ have NO chance unless something happens to influence the election.

    The game that Biden and its zionist regime are playing at this point is all focused on the Iranbian election. Iranian people are fed up with the ‘reformists’ that Zarif, Rouhani, Ali Larijani, are part of it.
    Majority of the people view ‘reformists’ as Iran fifth column and they want them to get lost as soon as possible.

    Those who leaked this tape to Saudi Arabia outlet ‘Iran International’ are trying to influence Iran election result for the benefit of the Iran fifth column, the reformist’ but it’s too late.
    They must go.

    (typo correction: prize, not prized)

    And one non sequitur: So, the result of the U.S. deep state/media villification campaign against Putin’s Russia for the past decade seems to be a de facto Eurasian alliance between Russia and China. If Shamir is on the mark, the U.S. foreign policy clique could have avoided that by welcoming Iran back to the imperial fold long ago. Why encircle Russia, China and Iran only to make them allies? Is D.C. insane, just slow on the draw, or only mentally deficient?

    Also, Europe has always been skeptical of the U.S. animosity toward Iran, with which it wants to trade. If the overriding U.S. objective has always been simply to keep its weak EU/NATO satrapies on the imperial leash, why have we continued to dump on Iran? The only answer I can think of is Israel and its dominant role in U.S. policy in the Near East. If we now make nice with Iran, wont we then have to break with Israel and the Gulf oil monarchies? Is that even possible?

    Iran being unable to flood the market with its oil keeps upward pressure on oil prices by limiting supply. This is naturally a plus for an oil producing nation like Russia. Imagine a nation looking out for its own interests? Unheard of in most of the West. In the US we actually cancel pipeline projects that would lower the cost of oil for American consumers.

    I’ve never met a Russian who spoke unkindly about the “rebellion.” It is probably due to generational conditioning and a desire to thrive in the Soviet system. The fact that they or their parents moved speaks louder than words. I know of one Russian who now has his foot in the door for a return to Russia. Speaks too of what they see happening here.

    Sadly our descendants will also be speaking well of the woke revolution unless some miracle comes along to stop the nonsense. Bet they try to move to Russia too.

    I don’t know what Zarif expected… Did he expect China/Russia to willingly take all the risks so Iran can have some bargaining chips to make a deal with the US?

    In any case, that deal Iranian leadership want so much is worthless. Because Iran is the strongest country in the region, you’ll be the desinated villain no matter what you do. You only need to take a look at what happened to USSR/Russia to know this.

Makes me very skeptical of Zarif’s claims and overall agenda.

    The Anglo/Zionists planned and prepared for WW1 ten years in advance including setting up the Fed and the income tax in 1913 to finance it and the ensuing forever wars. They interrupted WW1 to take over Russia, but achieved their goals of destroying Germany and establishing lsrael shortly after 1945.

    The Jewish takeover?

    Churchill was a puppet of the Rothschild banking family that ran Britain.

    Churchill was a war criminal and mass murderer. (Dresden and India).

    As an alcohol gambler always in debt you can not seriously believe he was anything more than a figure head obeying Rothschild directives.

    He betrayed his own people by refusing peace with Hitler and brought both his nation and its empire to their knees. The lend-lease agreement allowed Rothschilds to take all of Britain’s gold and put Britain in debt by 1942. WW2 was a Rothschild construct since they funded Hitler and destroyed Britain in one sly move using Churchill as their front man.

    You betray yourself by aggrandising Churchill. He was parasitic scum.

    Since Rothschilds own Russia’s national bank Putin has no option but to be on good terms with Israel, since Jerusalem is Rothschild’s ultimate sanctuary.

    Besides, half of Israel’s Jewish immigrant population is of Russian origin, consequently Israel holds the same power over Putin and does the Russian population in Donbass and adjacent areas.

    Then there is the considerable Jewish population in Belarus which demands protection against Biden’s Jewish friends. Those Jews would never accept western rule.

    Putin is a politician of the possible, not a politician of the fantastic (Zarif), or a politician of the ridiculous (Biden).

    Ultimately Israel will be safer under Russian protection than the seriously insane US.

    At some point Israel and Iran must make peace with each other and this could only happen under Russian guarantees and jurisdiction.

    Saudi Arabia is a British construct and the Wahhabi sect is a Rothschild approved mechanism designed to bring conflict within the Muslim world (bearing in mind the Bank of England is 98% owned by the Rothschild family, which provides British finance and has since the beginning of Queen Victoria’s reign in 1836, if not before.)

    To bring back and maintain freedom for democratic people, which can only be very relative, they need to give up their obsession with politics, state and media, they need to stop investing power in these, they need to become much more small scale self organizing in a multitude of ways. They need to disempower mob media like Facebook, Twitter, etc, they need to stop becoming part of mob systems, investing power in them. They need to stop forming mobs and too big masses, as all these are blind and will finally be controlled, and he will be individually disempowered by them per definition. By formation of masses democratic man thinks he gains power and influence, but actually, he gives his power and influence away, and he becomes atomized. Democratic people need to kill their own giant monsters, state, media and corporations, cut them into pieces, they need to dissolve their own web of political organizations, do away with their own armies of bureaucrats and managers, and take care that these never come into being to the extent as has occurred over the last century.

    [In any case, that deal Iranian leadership want so much is worthless. Because Iran is the strongest country in the region, you’ll be the desinated villain no matter what you do.]

    Iranian leaders, like General Suleimani and Mr. Khamenei, know that the west has its own project and no matter what you do, there is more excuses to DENY you the right to develop your country with your OWN resources and an educated force that Iran has. That’s why they worked hard to create Iran’s assets, indigenous made by Suleimani/Khamenei camp.

    The West including Israel are frighten to see a DEVELOPED Iran that is not under control. Instead, they want another Saudi Arabia, a petty colony, where is forced to put its resources and her people blood at the service of the west to expand their hegemony over the world.

    Iran is willing to work with everyone, if Iran is treated with respect and is allowed to have a sovereign and developed nation.

    The ‘reformists’ camp, including Rouhani and Zarif have different views. This camp wants to work with the west regardless of what the demands. They are willing to give more concessions if it is necessary. Zarif never understood, or was not willing to accept that the west has its own plan, colonization of Iran at any price to bring Iran under Jewish mafia control.

    I did not talk what Zarif said about General Soleimani. Zarif never understood that Suleimani was working very hard to create assets for the diplomacy group to succeed. He was threaten by
    Suleimani, a confident and humble man.

    Suleimani wanted Iran to negotiate from the position of strength. He correctly understood that the west do not give a damn about Iran and only was interested to have another Saudi Arabia.

    Zarif is not a strong negotiator because he has been in the position of power for too long, but his achievements is little. His weak negotiation technique brought MORE sanctions for Iran where he is trying to blame on General Suleimani to cover up his own weakness.

    No one buys these rubbish. Many believe that, Zarif has been taken advantage of by the west, and he was deceived by the western negotiator team. The west does not give a damn about Zarif, why he should trust the west so much?

    Wendy Sherman, the US nuclear negotiator team, in her book “Not for the Faint of Heart” makes the assertion that she obtained more concessions from the team by shedding ‘few tears’ to influence Iranian soft spots, the hearts.

    Zarif has been in power for so long without much to show. Iran’s capability to defend itself has been build by the ‘hardliners’ not the ‘reformists’. But, the reformists have been kept in power with the influence of the west almost 40 years, except Ahmadinjad who is in another category.

    What is the achievement of Iran fifth column the ‘reformists’? Nothing!

    Majority of the assets gained by Iran has been made by Soleimani/Khamenei camp, where the west hate so much, and had to eliminate Suleimani by assassination. Why does no one go after Zarif? Because the traitors ‘reformists’ cooperates with the west like slaves.

    Suleimani would have been the next president if he wanted to. Zarif was shocked to see millions of people poured into street after the Jewish mafia pimp assassinated Suleimani. His popularity went to the roof. He could not imagined that Suleimani has millions of supporters. This popularity now held by the Sepah, the military. Then he Zarif attacked Iranian people and accused them of loving ‘protagonist’ instead of ‘diplomat’.

    This is a serious mistake to assassinate a beloved leader to improve the ‘reformist’ position for the next election. Those who are responsible for Suleimani assassination are stupid and COWARD. Now, Iranian people do not accept anyone from the ‘reformists’, only someone like Suleimani where the west eliminated. The stupid assassin created another another SAINT. Only uninformed person who does not care about his own country’s interest do that.

    [I don’t know what Zarif expected… Did he expect China/Russia to willingly take all the risks so Iran can have some bargaining chips to make a deal with the US?]

    No he did not. But Iran gave a lot to get some sanctions relieve and expected both The European countries and Russia and China involved in the negotiation to continue supporting the deal and giving some relieve.
    Iran received no help from the European colonies and some support from Russia. Russia supported the deal but China continue buying little oil from Iran where was not sufficient for Iran to survive and had to take other initiatives to survive, especially in the era of Covid which still going on.

    Inactivity of other members of the deal against the aggressor, helped the assassin to tighten the robe further around Iran’s neck.

    Why 1917 was so wonderful?
    Because that was a great push to kill greed, to make people free, safe, employed, to improve, to go to the happy future for all – something very different from what we have now.
    This is what philosopher and writer Zinoviev wrote on the Stalin era:
    You should understand whose interests Stalin expressed, who followed him. Why did my mother keep the portrait of Stalin? She was a peasant woman. Before collectivisation, our family lived well. But at what cost did they get it? Hard work from dawn to dusk. And what were the prospects for her children (she gave birth to eleven children!)? To become peasants, at best, artisans. Collectivisation began. Destruction of the village. Flight of people to cities. And the result of this? In our family, one person became a professor, another became a plant director, a third became a colonel, and three became engineers. And something similar happened in millions of other families. I do not want to use evaluative expressions “bad” and “good” here.
    I just want to say that in this era in the country there was an unprecedented in the history of mankind the rise of many millions of people from the very bottom of society into masters, engineers, teachers, doctors, artists, officers, scientists, writers, directors.
    Stalin was adequate to the historical process that gave birth to him.
    It was not he who gave birth to this process, but he put his stamp on it, giving him his name and his psychology. This was his strength and his greatness.
    It is possible that young people will someday yearn for the Stalin times. The people (the same, allegedly deceived and raped) are already yearning and meet the mention of their name with applause.
    And we could win the Great Patriotic War only thanks to the communist system. After all, I saw the war from the first day, I went through it all, I know what and how it happened. If not for Stalin, not for the Stalin’s leadership, they would have defeated us already in 1941. End of quote.
    This is my answer why I cherish 1917.

    I have often mentioned on UR the hidden struggle between the reformists led by Zarif and Rouhani and the old guard led by Khamenei and Suleimani. That begs the question: why did Trump cancel the JCPOA and later approve the assassination of Suleimani as both moves strengthen the conservative camp at the expense of the reformists. Some of Trump’s fans like the historian Mike King argued that Trump was pretending to help Israel by cancelling JCPOA when his real intent was to help the Iranian conservatives being nationalists opposed to the NWO of the globalists. I found this argument hard to swallow but Trump often did the right thing for the wrong reason; maybe Trump was seeking the satisfaction of Netanyahu but ended up inadvertently helping the conservative cause in Iran.

    I fully agree with you about the futility of Iran seeking a fair and honourable deal with the West as Westerners have proven time and again that they are nothing more than Zionist stooges. And yes I also agree with you that Ahmedi Najad was an exceptional leader for he was not only a fine scholar and a humble and honest man but he dared speak for the truth when he challenged the Holocaust narrative raising many cries of objection from some of my Iranian ‘ liberal’ acquaintances.

    Though I have had one nagging question on my mind: will Iran find a suitable replacement for the heroic martyr Suleimani?

    French prof. Fourtillian with high credentials was put into mental hospital, Soviet style, following his statements about the present corona-virus as lab-made and the “vaccines” as destructive. Fourtillian exposed the patents obtained by the Pasteur team, which includes a world-specialist in VIH and its genomic insertions, the latter being the remarkable difference between the Wuhan virus and the ancestors. It was Luc Montaigner, Nobel prize 2009, at the Pasteur Institute who discovered the VIH virus and the team incorporated into Covid-Sars-2. Past October 2020, Montaigner while sustaining at the French media that the covid-19 virus is manmade, indicted China for its production and release. Trump retook the issue and made a public accusation placing the blame on China, and so it stayed thereon. So while saying the truth about the artificial nature of Covid-19, Montaigner was placing the blame on China protecting his pals at home: the head of the project of insertion of VIH was his past Ph.D. student. For the documents, one can reach illustration at the sites below.Hmm, in 2010 “took refuge” in China, where he was placed a laboratory at his disposition at Shanghai, after promoting the wave coding of genomes. So he backstabbed China, protected his buddies at home and made a case for WW3.

Liquidating all those other revolutionary leaders, some far more important and competent than he was, under false pretenses was uncalled for. I mean getting them all to confess that they were Nazi agents and spies in those show trials, how credible or sensible was that, especially considering he was the one who went on to sign a deal with Hitler?

    This sort of transformation could have happened without Bolshevism. Russia jumped from feudalism to communism and did not experiment with truly free markets under full industrialisation. Not to forget that the assassination of Stolypin by a demented Zionist Jew killed the reforms that made Russia the biggest grain producer by 1911. Under the leadership of the wise and efficient Stolypin, Russia might have avoided entanglement in the European WWI and with Russia’s potential, free markets would have let the Russian genie out of the bottle sparing the Russian people the brutality of the NKVD, Stalin’s purges and the GULAG, sparing the Ukrainians the Holodomor and maybe sparing the Russians the misery of WWII. Communism is superior to feudalism but the achievements of communists were soaked with blood and tears.

    So your mother was rich, had 11 children, not uncommon in those wonderful days of freedom. Then the God-hating/communist junta came in, and soon, the girls were fortunate to have 2 children, they became poor. As the “”wonderful” revolution of 1917 progressed, the girls lived and died in shabby little flats in communal buildings, without the joy either of many children or the joy of living on the land.

    Stalin had spies everywhere, and millions of people were being sent to the camps. Under those circumstances I suppose most women might keep a picture of the dictator on the wall. It’s called survival instinct.

    Hitler’s army got to within about 10 miles of Moscow, despite being massively outgunned in tanks, artillery, everything. What kind of idiot would let the Germans progress so far? A competent leader would have stopped them easily in Poland, and without any doubt at all in Little Russia.

    No, it took a peculiar kind of idiot to let Hitler get within 10 miles of Moscow. A FOREIGN idiot, or perhaps a traitor, half Jewish and all Georgian, not Russian at all.

    I cannot under any circumstances imagine Putin letting NATO get within 10 miles of Moscow, although the strategic balance is weaker for Moscow now than it was in 1941. This is because Moscow now has competent and loyal leadership.

    how could Putin allow that if indeed Shamir is reporting truthfully? I don’t know how much control Russia has over its own media, relative to Jewish media power in Russia

    Indeed how can Putin be as friendly to the Zionists as he is, when we know what Zionist power really is all about…a power that would not under any circumstance have the best interest of the Russian nation as any of its concerns.

    I mean I don’t expect Putin to be out in the streets challenging Jews to fist fights every time he saw one. but what he must be routinely involved in securing the interest of the Russian people appears to warrant a much different routine attitude towards Israel on his part.

    if such an attitude is absent in place of which is the Israel friendly Putin that I believe then I for one regard Putin at all times with a large pinch of salt.

    Regarding the JCPOA, the interesting point is that Obama said that “Russia was a help on this” – helped the US reach an agreement with Iran. He’d been worried they mightn’t, seeing he’d been so hostile to Russia, but
    “Putin and the Russian government ‘compartimentalised’ on this [separated the nuclear deal from Ukraine and other US-RF contentions]… And we would not have achieved that agreement had it not been Russia’s willingness to stick with us and the other members…”

    Mr. Shamir:

    Since you are an insider (in Russia) and have seen it yourself, maybe you are right.
    But from I have read from many sources, as an outsider, it appears that Soviet people (Russians/Slavs overwhelmingly) won not because of Stalin, but despite of him.

    1. Stalin was so mesmerized by Hitler that he dismissed all advance warnings of impending attack from his excellent spy network.
    Sorge even got the exact day (from his Japanese sources), but Stalin did not believe his agents.
    Stalin knew that Hitler would invade USSR most definitely. But not just then. Stalin was so sure of the non-aggression pact that he believed Hitler would not invade for 2-3 years, which would give the Red Army time to prepare.

    2. Stalin had 1,000s of experienced officers, generals, marshals, admirals shot or exiled to Siberia on bogus charges and his paranoia.

    3. Stalin was so mesmerized by Hitler and the non-aggression pact, that when the first reports of shootings at border started coming in to Kremlin, he forbade his frontline generals from shooting back: he considered those “provocations” by parties unknown who wanted Nazi Germany and USSR to go to war. Stalin was terrified of fighting Hitler just then.

    4. When Stalin realized this was the Real McCoy, he went into some kind of a shock and hid in his office. Incommunicado. For several days. His frontline generals were begging to be allowed to withdraw in good order. But nobody would dare give them permission without Stalin’s OK.
    By the time Stalin came out of his catatonia, Nazi invaders had cut off and destroyed several Soviet armies. The losses were catastrophic.

    5. Stalin’s one saving grace was that – unlike Hitler – when Stalin realized that this war was beyond his depth, he turned over the running of the war to professional soldiers, like Zhukov.

    And finally: in his day Napoleon’s Grande Armée was at the same level as Wehrmacht was in WW2: a rung (or maybe two) above any army of the day. And yet Russians – without Bolsheviks and without Stalin- defeated Napoleon and wiped out his Grande Armée. Same as they did to the Wehrmacht.

The Italians didn’t murder their King’s famy when they threw him out and their rise out of poverty was no less impressive than that of the Russians. Okay, your family prospered, but can you really be so nonchalant about the cost? The murders? The tortures? The imprisonements?

    Had the bolsheviks not seized power, the newly created Russian parliament may have made the same great strides forward, maybe even more so,without the senseless killing and suffering. And who knows, your brother might have made general.

    Israel Shamir’s view of communism is what is called “rationalization” in psychology. And this state rationalization is repeated by all brainwashed communists, so it is very familiar. Communism is a system of murder and oppression. But the murderers and oppressors benefited by it so they call murder and oppression good. Mental illness. Inability to understand evil when the evil is in you. The Russians defeated Germany because Stalin put machine gunners behind his own people, and destroyed their families if they surrendered, which is what all those who were free did. Everyon who could was happy thay there were liberated from the communisits and cheered.

  83. Israel, you are in over your head on Russian history, and should stick to defending Tel Aviv in their genocide project against the Arabs.

    Calling 1917 a Revolution is an outright lie. You are just trying to gloss over the horrendous bloodshed resulting from this ‘foreign’ invasion from Jews that were bought and paid for by the New York bankers (Jacob Schiff et al), In concert with the Rothchilds in the City of London, and all their cohorts.

    You see, Jews have had a hatred for Russia for centuries due to Russia’s military foiling their plans, chiefly their assistance to the United States against the Jewish slave trade from Africa to the American South. England and US Jews were getting hugely wealthy by this trade, but when there arose a counter movement against slavery in the US, the Jewish river of money was at risk. This was one on the causes of conflicts between England and America.

    During one of these periods, the Russian Czar sent their Navy to help defend against the slave traders. You see, England was making immense amounts of money from the slave trade and the trade in cotton, which England had a relative monopoly on, and with their new machinery, were able to make huge gains on the manufacturing of products, along with the sale of slaves to the American South.

    The Russians turned out to be spanners, and helped the US defeat the British, along with dealing a blow to the Slave traders. This, of course, earned the Russians the lasting enmity of Jews and the slave traders.

    Fast forward to the late 19th century, during which Schiff and his Jew-buddies took a look at a closer opportunity to get into the slave business again. This time, via importing hundreds of thousands of Chinese surfs which they put to work as slave labor in building the thousands of miles of railroads in the US, along with the Panama canal.

    One last observation, relative to your comment about Stalin being to tough on his lieutenants. Remember, they were Jewish and deserved everything that was coming to them, including assassination, the same RX they dealt to the Russian populous. Were it not for Stalin (a Georgian), the Jews would have sold Russia down the river to Hitler for chump-change. That is because all they wanted was money, not to go to war with Germany.

    An anglo who believes the word “jew” somehow means the ancient race of Hebrews known as the nation of Israel who were chosen and protected by God until being scattered abroad and caused to forget their identity due to having turned their back on God.

    Some theologians suggest anglo-zionists are driven by an irrational belief that persons who call themselves jews are the original Hebrews, when history shows the word jew does not occur in the bible until a century after the nation of Israel disappeared.

    Medical science likewise has proven incapable of helping anglo-zionists take the first step in confronting facts further complicated by masochistic tendencies which ignore how the ultimate hero in their religious system was born to a family of true Hebrews 500 years after Israel disappeared, and who entered Jerusalem and told these same jews “You are of your father satan, and of his desires you will do.”

    There is in modern day evangelical journals an immense literature allegedly capable of avoiding questions arising from any system of worship based on mutually exclusive faiths, and whose penalties include both crucifixion and the USS Liberty, but for purposes of question at hand, the definition of Anglo-Zionist will suffice.

    I may be wrong wasting unnecessary and dangerous time, that the executions should be carried out summarily by the people in revolutionary decision and action. and who knows a lot of that may take place obviating much legal proceeding ultimately. and of course what the people decide and do in direct collective revolutionary activity on the streets is 100% legal. the people in popular action are the law not the constitution!

    @Avery There were pro-German conspiracies among Russian generals in 1930s; now we know it for sure. Perhaps some of the arrested generals were innocent, but there was a great need to purge out the plotters. As for beginning of the war, Stalin tried his best to avoid war with Germany. He remembered the WWI, and he was adamant to avoid the repeat. Would you say he tried too hard? It anyway convinced the Russians that the war was something their leaders tried to avoid at all costs, so if it came, it couldn’t be avoided. As for “despite”, this was a Khruschew line. There is no way to refute such a claim. You can say Caesar took Gaul because of his legions and despite himself lol.

Apart from a two-year stay in Europe in 1875-76, Forbes lived in China from 1857 to 1882. The “Career and Honors” section of his biography states that this criminal received awards for his lifelong work with “poppies.”

    “ As for beginning of the war, Stalin tried his best to avoid war with Germany”

    Was this why Molotov stubbornly refused Hitler’s proposition during their last meeting to keep a demilitarised area of 200 km along the German Russian border after the takeover of Poland? I suppose the Russians having a strategic depth in the thousands of kilometres could have afforded this concession to the big bad Nazi leader. Maybe we should give some consideration to Suvorov’s theory about the true intentions of Stalin. Some military strategists attribute the German rapid advance to the predominantly offensive rather than defensive Soviet forces that were stationed along the new Soviet/German border.

    France fell to the German attack because the French lacked the strategic depth that the Soviets had along their extremely hostile weather. Moreover, we cannot discount the decisive role of American military and civilian help that was extended to the Soviet Union despite being as much guilty of the aggression against Poland as the Germans were.

    Whatever the brainwashed say, in terms of murders and oppression, communism never managed to beat capitalism. Just a few examples. WWI, a purely capitalist affair – more than 8 million soldiers killed, not to count civilians. War in the Pacific during WWII involved exclusively capitalist powers and claimed millions of lives, many of them civilians. Civilian casualties in Hiroshima, Nagasaki, and many other Japanese cities bombed using conventional explosives were inflicted by capitalist “democracy”. More recent examples: killed by capitalist war criminals Vietnamese, Afghanis, Iraqis, Libyans, etc. number in the millions. During and immediately after 1965 CIA-organized anti-Sukarno coup in Indonesia more than 1 million was killed.

    Or if we stick to the USSR, after restoration of capitalism in 1991 overall population loss in the former USSR in just ten years (1991-2000) dwarfed the losses from Bolshevik repressions over more than 70 years.

    The key fault of communism (or at least “socialism” implemented in the USSR, which I know first-hand) was not that, but the fact that it was a loser-oriented society. The difference between what you got working hard and doing as little as possible was not sufficient to stimulate people. Lazy scum got the same heavily subsidized housing, free education and healthcare, ridiculously cheap childcare, and other kudos as honest hard-working people.

    If anything, the media in post-Stalin USSR were freer than they are in today’s West. In terms of wealth, you could get far ahead of the common crowd exclusively by dishonest means, exactly like under “free market” capitalism. Being born into the family of party bigshots got you the same unfair advantage as being born into the family of various Rockefellers, Bushes, Waltons, Hiltons, etc. Those things are common between the systems. Incentives to work for those who had to earn their keep themselves was deficient in “socialism”, like it becomes deficient in “woke” dictatorship.

However, a lot more people died because of NKVD repressions. These people, even though they were not directly killed by the authorities, are nonetheless victims of repressions.

    Same rule applies to 1990s.

    For the feeble-minded: if you close a person in a room w/o access to food and water, and this person dies of thirst and hunger, this person is your victim, even though you did not shoot, strangle, or directly murder this person in any other way.

    Mr. Zarrinnal also covers the negative role of Russia on ‘Iran deal’.

    [When the JCPOA (the formal acronym for the nuclear deal) was signed, the Russian foreign minister, Lavrov, was not in the collective picture, and he had put in his utmost effort to stop the deal, words that Zarif said to his interlocutor “you will never be able to publish” (31). Examples of these efforts included a later-discarded text of the agreement presented by the U.S. team to Iran, drafted by Russia but also France, specifying that Iran must seek a vote from the Security Council every six months for the renewal of JCPOA (34). Zarif added that Russia also attempted to obstruct the deal by raising tensions. It attempted to generate indefinite reliance on Russian industries and contractors for Bushehr’s nuclear power plant, whereas Iran wanted temporary Russian assistance after which it would become self-reliant.

    Russia also refused, Zarif added, to provide a license to Iran for the use of its own fuel in the plant. It appears from the tape that the two countries reached an agreement, however, according to which Iran would become self-reliant after a ten-year period (32).]

    Who are these traitors except the Iran fifth column, ‘the reformists’ who have flirted with American presidents but have nothing to show for it. The only achievement these traitors under Rouhani ‘leadership’ had was more SANCTIONS. Iran sanctions doubled under traitor Rouhani.
    Now, Iran fifth column with NO credibility wants to deceive Iranian people again and change the election result using fears to please his masters abroad.

    These traitors and their masters, American presidents, zionists and assassin, must get lost. Their time is UP.

    the nations of Europe were mercantile economies in the early to mid 20th century, not capitalist.

    Interesting hair-splitting. Can you actually explain the difference? As far as I know, any society where some people own means of production and transportation (plants, land and farms, railroads, ships, etc.) and others don’t and work for wages is capitalist.

    Ok, I understand where your coming from. Capitalism is the normal human activity of trade where a person reaps the reward for the good or service he provides. Free trade is an important factor in such a system. In a mercantile economy, a few aristocrats, or well connected people control most of the country’s trade, for the benefit of their country (king), and naturally, for themselves. It’s a closed system where the average person is prevented from rising too high. The first World War was between monarchies looking to expand, not capitalists. The wars between communist and non-communist nations were wars of freedom. No one ever fled toward the communists. It had nothing to do, or very little to do, with capitalism. It had to do with freedom, to practice one’s religion, free speech, private property rights and the rest of those items listed in the Bill of Rights.

    Yes, we should not forget American aid, as you say. And why not name the whole bunch, ”The Anglo-American Establishment”. They paved the way early. Among some, betraying The White Army. How is it even possible to think they lost grip after WWI, the war they started. Are we to believe that wasn’t connected to number 2, in their interest, as the continuation of their plan?
    Like they conjured Hitler, they surely must have handled Stalin.

    That’s not true, there were people fleeing in that direction. Admittedly, fewer than in the other one.

    Do you sincerely believe that in the US of 2021 we actually have those rights? If you do, I have a bridge to sell you.

    There an Italian saying “ all roads lead to Rome”. And all wars lead to the glory of the PTB who are nothing more than the descendants of the bloodlines hiding behind many layers of power structures with their nerve centre being the “City” in London. Hitler rebelled and the response was swift and deadly. Stalin played his cards wisely and ruthlessly and managed to hold on to power after the Anglo-Zionist empire initiated the Cold War which came to an abrupt end in 1990, the same way it started, only to initiate a bunch of fresh recruits onto the oligarchic train for the rip-off of Russia’s resources pushing her heroic people into poverty and despair until Putin managed to turn the tables. I hope that ultimately Putin is a true rebel who through his solid alliance with China’s Xi can put an end to the fiend that has been manipulating European politics for more than 25 centuries starting with Roman Empire all the way to the American Empire that appears to be on its last leg. But then who knows; maybe Putin and Xi are part of a new plan. Only time will tell.

    Thanks for the link which speaks a lot about pre-Bolshevik Russia. I wish Israel Shamir, a decent and brilliant writer, abandons his romantic association with that bloody revolution of 1917 by jettisoning the drilled illusions into his mind by the Soviets and the Israelis. Yes indeed, as Hitler stated in Mein Kampf, the communists killed the great potential of Russia.

  115. @Johnny Rico

    For starters Trotsky was a far better war leader than any other Bolshevik as he created the Red Army and led them to victory against the Whites and several foreign interventionists including UK, US, Japan. But I guess you have a problem with him because he was a Jew, as many of the other purged revolutionaries, but still it was absurd to make up those lies in the show trials that they were Hitler’s agents bent on destroying the Soviet Union on behalf of the Nazis.

    In fact, during my student year at Concord College, Shrewsbury, Shropshire, our English history teacher taught us that the Russian industrial revolution was aided by France only to make Tzarist Russian Industry surpass in volume French industry before WWII. The Russian potential was great but it was wrecked by WWI and the communist takeover.

    It was brilliant Serge Witte who was a key figure in propelling the industrial revolution. In addition, Russian nobility and intelligentsia had been working selflessly to open the gates to higher education for children of lower classes (see zemstvos). Not just the amazing Moscow School of Mathematics and the formidable math department of St. Petersburg University (see Andrej Markov), but there were also great Russian achievements in belle lettres and fine arts and architecture.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Industrialization_in_the_Russian_Empire

    Certain industries of the Russian Empire were characterized by extremely rapid growth. From 1894 to 1914, in the Russian Empire, coal production increased by 306%, oil – by 65% (growth stopped in 1901, since then no increase has been observed), gold – by 43%, copper – by 375%; cast iron – by 250%; iron and steel – by 224%. Russia supplied 50% of world egg exports; it owned 80% of the world production of flax. At the beginning of the 20th century, the Russian Empire, along with the United States, occupied a leading position in world agriculture

    Jewish-American capital was the decisive factor in provoking the revolution of 1905 and weakening the Russian empire. https://strangeside.com/russo-japanese-war-financed-by-jacob-schiff/

    In February 5664/1904, Schiff invited a number of Jewish communal leaders to a meeting in his home. “Within 72 hours, war will break out between Japan and Russia,” he informed the gathering. “The question has been presented to me of undertaking a loan to Japan. I would like to get your views as to what effect my undertaking of this would have upon the Jewish people in Russia.”

    … Schiff agreed to set US financial machinery in motion and raise the required funds. “[It was not] so much [because of] my father’s interest in Japan,” his daughter, Frieda, explained later, “but, rather, his hatred of Imperial Russia…”

    Altogether, of the total of 410 million dollars raised by Japan to win its war, 180 million dollars was raised in the US. After Japan’s victory in 5665/1905, Schiff was granted diplomatic honors in Britain and Japan. The British king, Edward VII, invited him for a luncheon at Buckingham Palace. Then he was invited by the Japanese emperor to personally receive one of Japan’s highest honors, the Second Order of the Sacred Treasure.

    And then the flower of the Russian intelligentsia was exterminated on the orders of “smart Alexes” of Bolshevik persuasion.

    It is long overdue for the sanctimonious society “Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation” to learn some history of the decisive Jewish role in the communist revolutions, beginning with the Bolshevik revolution. It is laughable that the society “Victims of Communism Memorial Foundation” chose to celebrate Mr. Sharansky, a supremacist admired by mega war criminal Bush the lesser.

    Cecil Rhodes and Lord Rothschild wanted to get more gold mines in South Africa, so they subverted the British government to wage the Boer Wars. This Anglo/Zionist partnership evolved into a plot to destroy Germany, GB’s rival, and establish lsrael, Rothschild’s dream. This partnership planned and prepared for WW1 ten years in advance including setting up the Fed and the income tax to finance WW1 and the ensuing forever wars. They accomplished their goals shortly after 1945. The history books of the West have been falsified to hide this. During the world wars, Churchill represents the most obvious Anglo partner. The Zionist bankers in London are a major part of their deep state, and Churchill was indebted to them.
