'Israeli subs with nukes in Gulf'

‘Israeli subs with nukes in Gulf’

Jerusalem Post – Sept 24, 2012

Israel is planning to permanently station a submarine carrying nuclear cruise missiles in the Persian Gulf, the Sunday Times reported on Sunday.

Israeli submarines have visited the Gulf before, but the decision has now been taken to ensure a permanent presence of at least one of the vessels.

The paper claims that the government has decided to station at least one of three submarines armed with nuclear missiles permanently within striking distance of Iran in the Persian Gulf.

According to the article the submarines are moving to the Persian Gulf in respone to the growing missile threat to Israel from Syria, Iran and Hizbullah.

Israeli submarines are known to periodically visit the area but this is the first report that they may be permanently stationed there.

The diesel powered submarines are Dolphin class and were built in Germany to Israeli specifications.


BBC Promotes English Democrats, a Party With No Assets, No Income..( No Membership?)

Kevin Boyle – No One to Vote For Sept 24, 2012

The English Democratic Party has been receiving coverage on a number of different BBC programmes, including the national news. Their ‘Directors report’ tells a tale.
Zero assets, zero income, zero investments. Should this operation be treated like a serious political organisation?
If only some of the rest of us were offered similar access to the airwaves.

Comment – September 26, 2012

Linked below in the comments section under the title: “FIRST CLASS IDIOT DOES SOME RESEARCH ON ENGLISH DEMOCRATS” more less confirms the fraudulent nature of the English Democrats. Wherein commenting on Kevin Boyle’s post, and we quote: “He confused the official English Democrats with the “UKIP” front the unofficial English Democratic Party.”
As if the English Democrats were the ‘official’ party and the UKIP were some beakaway group.
Of course the opposite is true but this sort of reverse logic bears the hallmarks of disinformation that is the characteristic of those in the service of the New World Order.

Steve Pieczenik: World War III starts 25 September 2012

Jim Fetzer – Veterans Today Sept 20, 2012

Dr. Steve Pieczenik, former Deputy Assistant Secretary of State in three administrations, who earned his Ph.D. at MIT, has revealed that he has been told by a high-ranking general–whom I believe to have been Gen. Richard Myers–that 9/11 was a “false flag” attack, which was done by the government in order to arouse the American people to support wars of aggression in Afghanistan and Iraq. On Alex Jones, he has now asserted that Israel is going to attack Iran on Yom Kippur, which begins on Tuesday, 25 September 2012. He insists that Barack Obama and Benjamin Netanyahu are at odds over this, where Obama and the Pentagon are opposed to any such attack. I think Pieczenik is very honest and has run risks by revealing that he was told it had been a “false flag” operation to induce the public to support wars of aggression in Afghanistan and Iraq.

I wish that I could believe that the US “won’t be drawn into another unpopular war”. Given the coming November presidential elections, however, where a new war in the Middle East would be overwhelmingly unpopular with the American public, Obama needs plausible deniability, which means that it must appear to the public as though this engagement was initiated by Iran, where the most likely scenario has an Israeli sub torpedo the USS Enterprise, our first nuclear-powered carrier, and blame it on Iran. This would not be the first example of monumental hypocisy by Obama. The administration, for example, has opposed the invalidation of the indefinite detention provisions of NDAA, which were blatantly unConstitutional on their face and take us back to a time prior to the Magna Carta. I am also stunned that DHS continues to acquire more and more ammunition: what conceivable reason can it have for stocking more than 1.5 BILLION ROUNDS of .40 hollow point, which is not even permissible for use in warfare under the Geneva Conventions?

DHS does not engage in operations abroad; therefore, it has to be for operations within the borders of the USA. That enormous quantity would require absurd storage were it not to be used in the near term. Between the FEMA camps and the surveillance (probably predator) drones being authorized here (for no other discernible reason), we have to bite the bullet and acknowledge that our own government, THE US GOVERNMENT, IS PREPARING TO GO TO WAR WITH THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. It has to be anticipating some cause of massive unrest and actual uprising by ordinary citizens, which could come from (1) the collapse of our economic system (where our bank accounts are vacated), (2) masses with Fukushima-induced radiation sickness (becoming like a vast class of Zombies), or (3) the nation is decimated by nuclear retaliation as a consequence of an attack on Iran (and the public is ravaging for its own survival). The third, at present, appears to me to be the most probable.

Circumstantial Proof

Bear in mind that Iran has not attacked any other country for more than 300 years. Iran has signed the Non-Proliferation Treaty (NPT) and has allowed inspectors into its facilities. Iran has disavowed the pursuit of nuclear weapons, even though it is my belief that it is entitled to have them and that, as in the case of the “Cold War”, where mutually assured destruction of the US of the USSR and of the US by the USSR ushered in a period of stability that endured for nearly fifty years, it would bring greater stability to the Middle East. Israel, by comparison, has 200-600 or more of these little beauties. Israel has refused to sign the NPT. Israel will not allow inspectors into its own facilities. Israel has refused to participate in a conference in Finland to discuss the nuclear disarmament of the Middle East, for the obvious reason that Israel wants nuclear disarmament for every country in the Middle East except Israel! If an attack where imminent, then we would expect Israeli shills to be attempting (again) to demonize Iran and its leaders as a threat to the world, where Ed Koch is fulfilling that role:

Iran Will Attack U.S. if It Gets Nuclear Weapons

By Edward Koch

The New York Times of Sept. 17 reported that “in Iran, the commander of the powerful Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps, Gen. Mohammad Ali Jafari, took the unusual step of holding a news conference on Sunday to warn that ‘nothing will remain’ in Israel if it or any other nation launches attacks against his country.

“He said that Iran and its allies — presumably Hezbollah in Lebanon and Hamas in Gaza — would retaliate at Israel’s borders, as would Iran itself in Israel and beyond, targeting American military bases in the Persian Gulf and shutting down the Strait of Hormuz,” according to the newspaper.

The Times goes on to report: “Iran has often threatened to counter any attack, but the general’s threats were unusually specific and signaled Iran’s intent to turn any possible attack into a regional conflict. ‘Our response to Israel is clear: I think nothing will remain of Israel,’ General Jafari said, according to an account by The Associated Press. ‘Given Israel’s small land area and its vulnerability to a massive volume of Iran’s missiles, I don’t think any spot in Israel will remain safe.’ General Jafari also confirmed, in what appeared to be the clearest terms so far, that some high-level advisers from his elite unit were working in Syria and Lebanon, underscoring how deeply intertwined the many conflicts in the region have become.”

So now we have one of Iran’s top generals joining the president of Iran in calling for the destruction of Israel. The Iranian general threatens Israel’s total demise and destruction “if [Israel] or any other nation launches attacks against his country.” The Iranian president’s longstanding calls for Israel’s destruction have always been unconditional.

Israel is normally referred to by Iranian government officials as the “little Satan” and the U.S. as the “big Satan.”

You can be sure that if and when Iran develops a nuclear bomb and a rocket capable of reaching the U.S., we here in the U.S. will be at risk simply because we exist. The fanatic Muslims engaged in jihad against Western civilization have as their goal the total destruction of Western civilization which they both envy and hate. Their ultimate objective is to convert the world to Islam.

How dumb are we supposed to be? What conceivable reason would there be for Iran to attack the United States? There is too much belief in the infallibility of technology, alas, where Bibi may believe that the “Iron Dome” protects Israel and the Joint Chiefs may believe that satellite-mounted lasers and AEGIS cruiser electronic-warfare capabilities are going to prevail against even the sophisticated anti-ship missiles in the Iranian arsenal. The use of an Israeli sub to sink the USS Enterprise and blame Iran gives Obama his “free pass” for committing the greatest atrocity in human history. Estimates have an attack on Iran’s nuclear facilities at 1,000,000 dead outright and another 35,000,000 premature deaths as the contamination spreads across Afghanistan, Pakistan, and India. But that is not counting the additional millions of US citizens in response.

Situation Assessment

My best guess is that Pieczenik is honest as the day is long but has been induced to believe the US won’t go along, whereas we are already taking measures in anticipation of a retaliatory nuclear assault. Bibi’s assassination might stop it in its tracks, but I doubt that will happen. The Israel’s are going to torpedo an old ship, ready for the scrap-heap, the Iranians and the Russians will respond and most of us are going to be casualties in the greatest nightmare to befall the human race. It will fulfill Curtis Lemay’s fondest wish in believing that a nuclear war is “winnable”, but I think JFK got it right when he surmised that would be a war in which the living will envy the dead. I wish it were otherwise and hope that I am wrong, but that is how I see it.

Pieczenik is not being allowed back on the air with Alex Jones. Our B-1 and B-2 bombers, I have been informed, have been transferred to within striking range of Iran–and the B-2s are now equipped with MOPs (Massive Ordnance Penetrators), 30,000 bombs designed for deep penetration before they explode. And Navy bases are taking steps to protect resources that would be damaged by air-borne detonations during an expected nuclear retaliation. My belief is that an assault has been planned for 25 September 2012, Yom Kippur, to launch the Jewish holy day in spectacular fashion. Iran and Russia (and possibly China, too) are going to retaliate with a massive response. We in the USA are not going to be spared. There is still the grotesque attitude among military minds that nuclear wars are “winnable”. Every human being, not just every American, should be required to watch “Dr. Strangelove” annually as a reminder of its complete insanity.

In addition to the hysterical ravings of Ed Koch, the GOP appears to want to Carterize Barack Obama by saddling him with difficulties in the Middle East that parallel the Iranian hostage crisis that cost him the election with Ronald Reagan, which is why Mitt Romney has been placing so many of his eggs in the foreign policy basket. He and Bibbi turn out to be close friends, where Netanyahu may believe that he will be in the position to dictate US foreign policy if Romney should be elected. How many Americans fall for this rubbish may be difficult to calculate, but it is not difficult to discern that Ed Koch is playing a propagandistic role here in attempting to induce the false belief that Iran poses a threat to the US and Israel, when it is the US and Israel that pose a threat to Iran–and to their own nation’s residents. Iran has never threatened “to wipe Israel off the map” and the general was obviously discussing a response to an attack upon Iran by Israel and not reiterating a deliberate mistranslation that has been used as an instrument of disinformation for far too long.

September 18th, 2012 by Dominique de Kevelioc de Bailleul

Speaking with Infowars’ Alex Jones, former Assistant Deputy Secretary of State Dr. Steve Pieczenik says Israel plans to attack Iran before the U.S. elections of Nov. 6., and, that an attack on Iran will assuredly kickoff WWIII, according to him.

Moreover, Pieczenik, a man whose career inspired the character Jack Ryan of the Tom Clancy book series, says the ‘October Surprise’ will not take place in October. Instead, the big surprise will come earlier, in late September.

Dr. Pieczenik says the specific date of the strike on Iran is Sept. 25th or 26th, Yom Kippur—the Jewish holiday, which commences in the year 2012 at sundown on the 25th, and ends at nightfall, the following day.

“It [an Israeli attack on Iran] could be earlier than October, because we have Yom Kippur. And I predicted on your radio show, and I predicted to our national security people, privately, that Benjamin Bibi Netanyahu would start something on Rosh Hashanah,” says Pieczenick.

“This [prediction] was over a year ago, and I said it on your radio show. He was as predictable as a clock, and the Israelis will be very predictable, on Yom Kippur,” he adds.

Pieczenik says it’s clear to him that Israeli prime minister Bibi Netanyahu has already planned to attack Iran and has been desperately trying to enlist the U.S. to back him up. But, with or without U.S. direct help, Pieczenik is certain that Israel will attack Iran.

Moreover, he says Netanyahu is an extremest, who will “lie” for his personal and selfish cause, a conclusion also drawn by many Israelis who protest his regime.

“Everything Bibi is saying to the Americans and the American Jews is an absolute, unmitigated lie,” Pieczenik, a Jew, himself, says forcefully,

“What we have here is a collusion between Saudi Arabia, neocon Jews of America and Israel, against a president, who, whether I like or dislike, and may have lied about Osama Bin Laden,” he adds, “he [President Obama] is the son . . . a son of a CIA operative, the grandson of a CIA operative, who understands very well what the issues of intelligence are.”

With help from his neocon friends, Netanyahu threatens the entire world with the suicidal notion that Iran must be attacked, and the Israeli prime minister must be stopped, even if it means assassination, according to Pieczenik

“In a couple of weeks, they [Israel, Saudi and neocons] will try to initiate another war, unless their ex-Mossad operatives and their ex-Shin Bet will take out Netanyahu, and do to Netanyahu what happened to Rabin,” exclaims Pieczenik. “They know what I’m talking about. Otherwise he will bring down Israel, the world, and there will be a third world war.”

He also says, “What we are, is [sic] at the brink of war, that is being precipitated by two major countries. That is, Israel, particularly Bibi Netanyahu, who knows his country is failing economically, socially, politically.” And the other country is “Saudi Arabia.”

Pieczenik says the Israelis, Saudis and neocons were behind the 9/11 attacks, an accusation also made some years ago by many researchers of the incident. Once considered a crazy idea forwarded by some ‘conspiracy theorists’, who seek to see a conspiracy in every major world event, the conspiracy theorists have been mostly vilified, though no reinvestigation of the 9/11 incident has been seriously proposed by any member of Congress.

Today, the ‘conspiracy theory’, or ‘inside job’ theory, appears to be much, much closer to ‘fact’ than the account of that day was published through the official Congressional report of 9/11, giving rise to a strong possibility of a Mossad, Saudi and neocon conspiracy to carryout a false-flag attack on the United States and blame the crime on Osama bin Laden, Iraq and Afghanistan.

Given evidence of Mossad’s checkered past and involvement with the attack of the USS Liberty on Jun. 8, 1967, killing 34 American soldiers, Pieczenik comments won’t be received as a big surprise to many Americans.

I want Netanyahu to “begin telling the truth, that the involvement of Israel was, in 9/11” says Pieczenik. “Over 134 Mossad operatives were picked up on 9/11. The FBI picked them up [and] debriefed them. They were clearly involved with the Pakistani ISI and Saudi Arabian intelligence” on 9-11. [See James H. Fetzer: Mossad Played Crucial Role in 9/11 Attacks.]

And, as far as the U.S. Ambassador to Libya, Christopher Steven: he was murdered by the Israeli, Saudi Arabia and Zionist neocons cabal, according to Pieczenik. [See ‘Innocence of Muslims, the GOP and World War III”.]“The killing of the ambassador is to precipitate war, so that Israel can finally get into Iran and try to destroy Iran,” he says. “It will be the beginning of the end of Israel. It’s Armageddon for Israel,” if it attacks Iran.“The Pentagon source informed me the distance between the Libyan embassy, where the ambassador was, and where the rioters were, was so large, and two days of delay in response . . ., simply that they [the killers of Stevens and three other embassy employees] were professionals ready to take out our ambassador,” he adds, and with the “approval from Saudi Arabia.”Adding to Saudi Arabia’s involvement of the two-plane demolition job in NY City, the crash of another alleged plane into the Pentagon, and the alleged downing of another plane into the woodlands of Pennsylvania, he says, “Saudi Arabia and Israel are twins. . . . There’s no way you can separate Israel from Saudi Arabia, or Saudi Arabia from Israel. They go back all the way to 9/11.”[But see “9/11 Truth will out: The Vancouver Hearings I” and “9/11 Truth will out: The Vancouver Hearings II”.]

Then the subject of the killing of alleged mastermind of 9/11, Osama bin Laden. According to Pieczenik, the account of Navy Seal Admiral William McRaven and President Obama regarding bin Laden’s death in Pakistan is another unmitigated “lie.”

“Then we get to the issue of Osama Bin Laden, which Obama said incorrectly and lied to the public that Osama Bin Laden was killed by Seal Team 6,” states Pieczenik. “Admiral McRaven had lied, repeatedly—unfortunately, a decent admiral, but for whatever reason he repeatedly insisted on saying Seal Team 6 killed Osama Bin Laden.”Pieczenik says Bin Laden had already been dead, and McRaven had known that. [See Osama bin Laden: 1957-2001.]And the names that came out of 9-11 unofficial investigation are, what Pieczenik calls, the “neocon chicken hawks” of “Paul Wolfowitz, Elliot Abrams and Michael Chertoff.”He adds, “Chernoff, the Chernoff Group, which is nothing more than a cover for the CIA and FBI, run by Charles Allen, a former CIA operative.”

Moreover, U.S. intelligence was behind the uprising in Libya, the assassination of Libyan president Muammar al-Gaddafi, and the murder of U.S. Ambassador to Libya Christopher Stevens, according to Pieczenik.

“Why this particular ambassador,” Pieczenik asks, rhetorically. “I think it’s very important for your audience to understand . . . Stevens was an ‘Arabist’. . . ”

He goes on to explain to the Infowars listeners that so-called Arabists are experts of Arabic culture, language and Arab history. But, these State Dept. professionals also could pose a threat to Israel’s ongoing propaganda war in a long-standing effort to elicit sympathy for the Jewish state.

Israel is no friend of America, according to Pieczenik.

He says, “From a geopolitical point of view, Israel is a strategic liability and has been a strategic liability for over 20 years. Since 1968, we have had no need for Israel other than the fact it covered us under the Soviet Union on the eastern, southern and northern flank.”

Presently, Israel is engaged in an all-out “provocation propaganda” campaign, according to Pieczenik, with the knee-jerk accusation from Netanyahu of Iranian involvement in the tourist bus explosion in Bulgaria, as the most recent and egregious example. The Bulgarian bus bomb incident is still under investigation.

But the Obama Administration won’t bite to being drawn into another unpopular war—following the failures, war crimes and lies surrounding the attack of Iraq and Afghanistan by the Bush Administration. [NOTE: This, I believe, is false: “‘Innocence of Muslims’, the GOP and World War III”.]“Netanyahu has no idea that Petreus will not save him; Dempsey will not save him; our Navy will not save him; McRaven will not save him; neither will Obama,” states Pieczenik.“He cannot get that message through, so he’s pushing this through until he kills one of our ambassadors, precipitate what we call ‘provocation propaganda’, only with the approval of Saudi Arabia.”Yom Kippur falls on the dates Sept. 25 and 26. Watch for those dates, says Pieczenik.

Maureen Dowd’s non-bombshell

Kevin MacDonald – Occidental Observer Sept 23, 2012

Maureen Dowd recently wrote a column dripping with what is routinely labeled “anti-Semitism” by the ADL and other guardians of political correctness  (“Neocons Slither Back“). Most commentators (see here) focused on her claim that Dan Senor is Mitt Romney’s guru on all things related to Israel. Jeffrey Goldberg weighs in:

Maureen may not know this, but she is peddling an old stereotype, that gentile leaders are dolts unable to resist the machinations and manipulations of clever and snake-like Jews. (Later, Hounshell wrote, “(A)mazing that apparently nobody sat her down and said, this is not OK.”)

This sinister stereotype became a major theme in the discussion of the Iraq war, when critics charged that Paul Wolfowitz and Douglas Feith, among other Jewish neoconservatives, were actually in charge of Bush Administration foreign policy. This charge relegated George W. Bush, Dick Cheney, Donald Rumsfeld, Condoleeza Rice, Colin Powell, Stephen Hadley and the other Christians who actually set policy to the status of puppets.

Of course, no one would say there was anything sinister about saying that Karl Rove had inordinate influence on Bush on domestic issues. It’s only a problem when a Jew is said to have influence; the implicit (ridiculous) theory is that no Jew could ever have a strong influence on a president, especially on issues related to Jewish ethnic interests—prototypically Israel. As usual, the actual facts are irrelevant. Simply saying that a Jew has such influence crosses the line—even though Dowd never mentions that Senor is a Jew.
The fact is that Bush was a naif who had no business being president. The following is from my review of Jacob Heilbrunn’s They Knew They Were Right: The Rise of the Neocons:

Heilbrunn also has some nice nuggets on George Bush’s naiveté in the area of foreign policy. The first time [Richard Perle] met Bush, he immediately sensed that he was different from his father. Two things were clear to Perle: one was that Bush didn’t know much about foreign policy and another was that he wasn’t too embarrassed to confess it. Like Wolfowitz, Perle admired Bush’s ability, as he saw it, to cut to the heart of the matter rather than become mesmerized by Washington policy talk. (p. 230) The fact that Bush was a babe in the woods on foreign policy was seen as a plus by the neocons. “In August 1999 an excited Wolfowitz told me over lunch . . . that Bush had the ability to penetrate the dense fog of foreign policy expertise to ask a simple question. ‘Tell me what I need to know? [sic]’ Bush, Wolfowitz said, was ‘another Scoop Jackson’” (p. 230)—a comment that certainly doesn’t reflect well on Jackson. Although Heilbrunn states that we can never know for certain what was going on in Bush’s brain in the days and months after 9/11, his comment that Bush “moved further and further into the web that the neoconservatives had woven around him” (p. 235) seems reasonable.

Bush was in way over his head and was a sitting duck for the neocons. And a big part of the web they wove consisted of falsified or cherry-picked intelligence reports engineered by Douglas Feith, David Wurmser and Abram Schulsky, and presided over by Paul Wolfowitz. As to the other “Christians” who actually made the decision to invade Iraq, Heilbrunn notes that “the movement’s non-Jewish members were largely bound to the group by a shared commitment to the largest, most important Jewish cause: the survival of Israel” (p. 69). This may be correct in some cases (quite possibly Henry Jackson). But “it is often quite difficult to separate such sentiments from the personal and professional attractions of being involved in neoconservative networks.”
Quite simply, at least by the time of the Clinton administration, the neocons had become the only foreign policy game in town within the Republican Party. Going with the flow had a lot of benefits and no costs—exactly the reason why the vast majority of politicians support the Israel Lobby. The power of the Lobby stems from their creating a situation where support for their policies is a no brainer for any ambitious politician.
I don’t think that Romney is anywhere near as naive or unschooled on foreign policy as Bush. But neither does he have any strong principles. He is one of the politicians described above—looking for ways to ingratiate himself with the media and the big money, and one-upping Obama on Israel is a natural strategy. I rather doubt it will work. Netanyahu is widely seen as having overplayed his hand in demanding the U.S. wage war on behalf of Israel. As Stephen Walt notes in arguing that the Israel Lobby is still alive and powerful, “That is one hell of an ask, of course, and sometimes when you demand the moon you don’t get it” (“How (not) to hide the elephant in the room.” Wasn’t the 100,000 dead, trillion dollar war in Iraq enough? (BTW, if you think Goldberg is outrageous, check out Walt’s target, David Rothkopf. The good news is that even supposedly sophisticated defenders of Israel (Rothkopf is CEO of Foreign Policy) are so out of touch with reality that they have become deliciously easy targets.)
But there is something else in Dowd’s column that one would think would send the ADL into a tizzy. Describing the foreign policy advocated by Senor, she writes:

A moral, muscular foreign policy; a disdain for weakness and diplomacy; a duty to invade and bomb Israel’s neighbors; a divine right to pre-emption — it’s all ominously familiar.

So an American Jew is demanding a foreign policy where the U.S. has “a duty to invade and bomb Israel’s neighbors.” What happened to all the blather about promoting democracy and freedom that has been the staple of neocon rationales for rearranging the politics of the Middle East in Israel’s favor? You know the line: It’s not about the interests of Israel. It’s about doing good for all humanity.
Dowd clearly crossed a line here, not even mentioning how Senor himself would propagandize his policy recommendations. Instead she implies that Senor is simply trying to advance Israel’s interests. This is a flagrant example of the loyalty issue—that Senor’s main loyalty is to Israel even though he has a powerful position in American politics.
This is exactly the sort of thing that the ADL goes after tooth and nail. We expect to see condemnations and demands that the offending person be fired forthwith. Followed usually by abject apologies.
A search of the ADL’s website does indeed find a complaint about Dowd. It’s a letter to the NYTimes on a column she wrote in 2009 about our predatory financial elite:

While one can agree or disagree with Maureen Dowd’s portrayal of Goldman Sachs and other bankers (column, Nov. 11), her statement that “the bankers who took government money and then gave out obscene bonuses are the same self-interested sorts Jesus threw out of the temple” potentially raises one of the classic themes of anti-Semitism linking Jews and abhorrent money-lending practices.

However unintentional, Ms. Dowd’s invoking the New Testament story to illustrate our current financial mess conjures up old prejudices against Jews.

I rather doubt that the vast majority of Dowd’s liberal non-Jewish readers made the connection. The ADL’s angst was doubtless fueled by the reality that in fact Jews are vastly overrepresented (see here and here) among the predatory financial elite. The ADL operatives are holed up in their bunker assuming that all non-Jews immediately make these connections, when the reality is that such connections are far more likely to be made by Jews than your typical terrified and cowed intelligent non-Jew whose bible is the NYTimes and who loves liberal columnists like Dowd.
So if they were so touchy about any hint that Jews were involved in the financial scandals, why give her a pass on this one?
I don’t know. But it may be that the ADL is hoping the entire thing will just go away. Sometimes the ignoring strategy is best. Since everyone who is paying attention knows full well that in fact Senor and other prominent Jewish neocons are promoting foreign policy that is in their ethnic interest, at some point they lose credibility. And the incredible chutzpah of Netanyahu in more or less demanding that the U.S. go to war with Iran makes it pretty difficult to maintain that Israel has nothing to do with it. Plus the fact that Dowd is notoriously liberal and thus generally on the same side as the Jewish community on domestic issues.
And some people are just too big to bring down easily, so there is a certain risk in attacking Dowd—that such attacks will result in a loss of credibility. There’s definitely an art to continually lying through your teeth that black is white and expecting people to fall in line when the results are completely contrary to their interests. You have to pick your battles and hope that things don’t get too out of control.
But having said that, the fact that they avoided this battle may be a sign that the organized Jewish community is on the defensive on the role of Jews in U.S. foreign policy. It’s about time.


Iranian commander: Israeli strike could trigger WWIII

Joanna Paraszczuk – Jerusalem Post September 23, 2012

A senior Iranian military commander on Sunday said that an Israeli pre-emptive strike on Iran could “trigger World War III,” repeating threats made over the past few weeks that Tehran will attempt to destroy Israel if the Jewish state launches an attack on Iran either with or without the US.

Brigadier General Amir-Ali Hajizadeh, commander of the IRGC’s aerospace division, also told state-owned al-Alam TV that Iran would target US bases in the region should Israel attack.

He warned that an Israeli strike could lead to a wider conflict, saying, “It’s impossible to imagine an independent war between Iran and the US or the Zionist Regime [Israel],” but rather it is more likely that other regional countries  would side with Iran or Israel in case of war.

“One should not imagine that the countries in the region would declare neutrality if a war breaks out,” he added according to a report by Iran’s Press TV.

Also on Sunday, Deputy Commander of the IRGC Brigadier General Hossein Salami said Iran is no longer concerned about threats from Israel.

“We have crossed the line of worrying about threats from the Zionist Regime [Israel],” Salami said according to Sepah News, the IRGC’s official news site, adding that in its wars over the last decade Israel has encountered harsh retaliation from the Islamic Republic’s ‘regional branches’, and is no longer a threat to Iran.

“If the Zionists really do strike Iran, it would provide a historic opportunity for the Islamic Revolution to wipe [Israel] off the face of the earth,” he said, adding that Iran would then “reclaim the lands occupied by Israel for the Palestinians.”

Salami then said that an Iranian infantry battalion would be able to “break Israel’s back” within a day. “The Regime [Israel] is only 24 kilometers wide in parts,” he explained.

Salami said that Iran was known as a great power and was capable of fighting on many fronts.

“We do not intend to start a war, but if someone starts a war against us, we will respond offensively and strike everywhere and will not stop,” he added, noting that the IRGC’s strategies and tactics are offensive, not defensive, in nature.

“Our enemy will begin the war, but we will be the ones to end it,” he asserted.

Salami said that Iran had gained knowledge in weapons manufacturing, including modern missile technology. The Islamic Republic has missiles capable of destroying enemy bases in the region, he claimed.

Referring to Iran’s recent announcements of new military developments, Salami noted that Iran had unveiled its Ra’ad (‘Thunder’) air defense system during its annual military parade on Friday.

The Ra’ad system is equipped with domestically made Taer (‘Bird’) missiles, which have a range of 50 kilometers and can hit targets at 22,000 meters, according to the Iranian state media.


‘Flintstone’ spy device explodes at Iranian nuclear site

Uzi Mahnaimi – Sunday Times September 23, 2012

Hardened uranium enrichment facility buried deep underground at Fordow, near the Holy City of Qom. Click to enlarge

A MONITORING device disguised as a rock exploded when it was disturbed by Iranian troops near an underground nuclear enrichment plant, according to western intelligence sources.

Revolutionary Guards were on a patrol last month to check terminals connecting data and telephone links at Fordo, near Qom in northern Iran, when they saw the rock and tried to move it, the sources said.

Iranian experts who examined the scene of the explosion found the remains of a device capable of intercepting data from computers at the plant, where uranium is being enriched in centrifuges.

It is feared a significant source of intelligence may have been lost for the West, which believes Iran could be preparing to use enriched uranium to make a nuclear bomb.

The Iranians initially kept news of the explosion secret. But last week Fereydoun Abbasi, the country’s vice-president and head of its nuclear energy agency, disclosed that power lines between Qom and the Fordow facility had been blown up on August 17.

The site, which was unknown until its existence was revealed three years ago, has been under scrutiny by American, British and Israeli intelligence agencies. Up to 3,000 centrifuges are hidden beneath 260ft of rock. Early reports suggested the blast was intended to cut power supplies to the plant and damage the centrifuges. But inspectors from the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA), who visited Fordow the day after the explosion, made no mention of any damage or disruption in their report.

Mr Abbasi alleged “terrorists and saboteurs” might have infiltrated the IAEA to undermine the nuclear programme, which Iran maintains is for peaceful purposes.

Intercepting the computer and phone lines from the plant would have enabled western analysts to estimate the output from the centrifuges, which are delicate and subject to frequent breakdowns.

The Iranians’ enrichment of uranium has become a question of considerable diplomatic importance. Binyamin Netanyahu, the Israeli prime minister, warned last week that Iran would have what it needed for a nuclear weapon by the middle of next year, and has threatened a unilateral attack. London and Washington believe Iran is making slower progress.

Mossad, Israel’s overseas intelligence service, is believed to have killed several Iranian nuclear scientists. British and American agents are also reported to be active.

British officials admitted earlier this year that a fake rock found in Moscow in 2006 contained monitoring and transmission equipment used for espionage.


The Absurdity of the Male Sex Drive

David Richards – henrymakow.com Sept 23, 2012

David Richards is a 24-year-old Englishman teaching in Mongolia.
The male sex drive is a maddening irritant that that has a widely disproportionate influence over the minds of men!
I was 13 years old when I first realized my sex drive was terrorizing me.  
Like all teenage boys, a combination of hormones made me obsessed with sex. This was exacerbated by the easy availability of pornographic images, which left me as frenzied as a kitten in a tray of catnip.
Left to my own devices, I might relieve myself 3-6 times a day. An orgasm was followed by a prolonged drowsiness that I found uncomfortable. I soon became irritated and bored by my addiction.
My sex drive was more suited to a bonobo monkey than a schoolboy. It was impossible to concentrate during math class with a dull ache in my loins for the entire hour. And at 13, there was no relief in sight – I was still a long way off from being sexually active!
Over a decade later, my sex drive has only dulled a little. I must still wrestle with it on a daily basis. 
Why does it need to be so fierce? I don’t need to father 100s of children.

U.S. Distrust in Media Hits Record High

Huffington Post – September 21, 2012

A new Gallup poll released on Friday found that U.S. distrust in the media hit a record high.

The results are based off a survey distributed between Sept. 6-9, 2012. The results were consistent with years past, as distrust in the media typically increases during election years from the year before. However, this year’s distrust was the highest since Gallup started recording results to this question in the 1990s.

When asked “how much trust and confidence” respondents had when it came to the media “fully, accurately, and fairly” reporting the news, 60 percent of respondents said they do not trust the mass media “very much/at all.” There is a 20 percent difference between negative and positive views of the media, with only 40 percent of respondents saying they trust the mass media a “great deal/fair amount.”

According to Gallup, “Trust in the media was much higher, and more positive than negative, in the years prior to 2004 – as high as 72% when Gallup asked this question three times in the 1970s.”

The results are also consistent with a recent poll conducted by Public Policy Polling for Daily Kos and the SEIU. Regardless of political leanings, 78 percent of survey respondents said they had an unfavorable view of the political press.


The Nitrous Zone of the Rapture of the Deep

Smoking Mirrors – September 23, 2012

Dog Poet Transmitting…….
May your noses always be cold and wet.
Wailing in the wilderness, is it an avocation or an occupation? I think it’s part of the Occupy Yourself Movement. If you can’t occupy yourself, someone or something else is going to occupy you. There’s no exception to this rule, ♫You gotta serve somebody♫ Why do people not get this? Don’t ask me because, I don’t know. When you can’t occupy yourself, terrible things become commonplace. When you can’t occupy yourself, frustration, rage and insanity become commonplace. How consistently do we see random outbreaks of violence, on the part of people pushed too far and the outrageous behavior of the authorities, on a day to day basis? Meanwhile, corporate madness is so out of control that sane has truly left the building. Close on the heels of the corporations, are the governments that are owned by the corporations. When these two get together on a collaboration, it’s like Shit for Brains, pulling an all nighter, with Turtle on a Fencepost. You can’t make this stuff up, or you wish they couldn’t but they do.
Eventually, the combination of this congregation of numb nuts, leads to the ultimate clusterfuck. In some ways, I guess it is not a bad thing, because there is a chance that this will backfire, on the world’s nastiest collection of nogoodnicks the world has seen, since the world started remembering this sort of thing. Why they are the worst of the worst, is because you can implicate them in a great many of the most terrible atrocities that the world has ever seen. There’s no question they did these things. Now, they ironically have their six million all gathered together. Here is the church and here is the steeple, open your hands to see psychopaths among the sheeple. It’s dark shit that won’t quit and, as we all know, that’s not the half of it. They founded Monsanto and the list of crimes from this one company is staggering. I’m not supposed to mention these things. That is probably why the voice is wailing in the wilderness but… as Omar Khayyam said, “wilderness is paradise enow”. Lots of people don’t want me to say these things, not the least of which are the people I am saying these things about. Let me help you out, which way did you come in? These things have to be said or we are dead. The possibility that Iranian bombs and missiles might hit Israeli chemical storehouses or Dimona is, “a consummation devoutly to be wished” but “first we kill all the lawyers”. No, I don’t want to kill anyone but what do you do? Quarantine is a great idea. I hope that’s the outcome but .♫Darkness, darkness be my pillow♫ When you’ve got a madman at the helm, you’re talking, Ship of Fools on a Titanic excursion.
Yes, somebody is looking to make a wrong turn into Damnation Alley, seeking to prove that evil destroys itself. “Well”, you may well ask, “why has it taken so very, very long for this to happen”? Some things only get handled during Denouement day of The Apocalypse. Eventually, the whole world gets the picture, even if these clowns who control the majority of the media, for the obvious reasons, don’t want you to hear about it. ♫Set me free, why don’t you babe, get out my life, why don’t you babe♫
They have no intention of changing. After all, their Opium War has been a resounding success. Their most odious mouthpieces, are possessed of projectile diarrhea and engaged in an endless litany of withering contempt, against that nation of seeming dumbasses, who just keep putting up with it, courtesy of a government that is totally co-opted by odious mouthpieces and devious darklings. I’m a trend kind of a guy. I watch social trends, political trends and the trends of Nature. Then I do comparative trends, in relation to all of them, not forgetting religious trends and corporate trends. Specific trends are one thing and comparative trends are something else. This is the kind of thing you see when all these economic pundits, keep getting it all wrong so consistently. They are looking at one part of the picture and they are also owned by the forces that manipulate the things they predict. That’s another trend. There are trends inside of trends. Half Past Human does great logistics on this sort of thing. Be comparative people, don’t just focus on partial equations. This is like having everything you need in your jacket and forgetting to put your pants on before you go out the door. This is a violation of the Boy Scout motto.
Leave no stone unturned and definitely don’t be sticking your hands under any stones, before you turn them over. This is what gets you into too close a contact with Gila Monsters and Moray Eels. Don’t be getting into the nitrous zone of the Rapture of the Deep. There you are in the beauty of the coral and all those pretty tropical fish and Mr. Barracuda is waiting motionless, off to the side. Sea Urchins are nestled in the sand. Sharks are cruising with their briefcases in their fins. There’s a certain poetry to the irony of sharks. If they stop moving they die. It’s some kind of ‘no rest for the wicked’ kind of a thing. That means “eternal vigilance is the price of liberty”.
People think I wholesale the Americans, as an aggregate collection of numbskulls. That’s not the case. I’m an American; let’s say I used to be. I have no sense of connection to that anymore but I remember all kinds of good people from there and that ‘can do’ spirit, that boundless optimism and the courage and generosity that I experienced and saw there. I also saw a lot of things that I didn’t like and people I had no respect for. The selfishness and greed, among a certain segment of the population, the indifference to the less fortunate and the callous meanspiritedness, along with the denial and stupidity, religious intolerance and a host of things that one finds in that Republican, Christian fundie rat’s nest. So there are mixed reads on the whole dynamic. Large parts of the world are screwed up, because of America and their owners, the Israelis. The Israelis would be in a world of hurt, without their catamite nation. In the process, America is imploding, as well as being looted from the ground up, by the biggest thieves, from the smallest demographic that was put together just for that purpose. It’s a criminal banking empire, with the mentality of Murder Incorporated. They’re gangsters and worse.
The Talmud is all one needs, to be aware of to see the mindset that predominates among this group. They are the epitome of materialism and the essence of materialism is, ‘me first, you later, maybe’. It’s the Golden Calf in endless redux, a sort of Rabid Redux, if I can mangle John Updike just a bit. It’s hard to find a hyperbole excessive enough to define these guys. These are the people who stood in the hills above Gaza, with their cocktails and binoculars and cheered Operation Cast Lead. These are the people who supported that genocide by a 94% majority. These are the people who slander others with the claims of behavior that they practice. These are the false fag aficionados, who engineered the 9/11 attacks. This site is down again but it will be back. It will keep coming back. I will keep coming back. Others will keep coming back, cue Chumbawamba.
As has been said here many times, one day follows another, as we wait for the other shoe to drop. We hope it doesn’t happen. We seek to do what can be done, to keep it from happening but it has always happened before, by hook or by crook. The Dark Shit Express, the Midnight Train to Hell, keeps running. The mind tries to grasp the depth of that perfidious iniquity in the empty hearts of these monsters. It is nothing human. I’ve run out of things to say.
End Transmission…….
The radio show isn’t up yet but we have hopes it will soon be. 


Spain Might Break Apart

Catalonia Cries for Independence, Spain Might Break Apart, And Its Military Threatens To “Crush” The “Vultures”

Testosterone Pit – Sept 21, 2012

Spain has enough problems: a debt crisis, a hangover from a housing bubble, unemployment of over 25%, youth unemployment of over 50%, massive demonstrations against “structural reforms” that the government is trying to implement in its desperate effort to keep its chin above water…. And now it has a new one: the possible breakup of the country. The military has already chosen sides. 

It started last week in Barcelona, capital of the Autonomous Region of Catalonia, the richest region in Spain. Of the 7.5 million Catalans, between 600,000 and 1.5 million—an astounding 8% to 20% of the population!—protested in the streets, demanding independence.

Antagonism between Catalonia and Spain has simmered for a long time. But the financial fiasco that Spain is mired in deepened the fissures. Out-of-money Catalonia had to ask the central government for a bailout. Catalans are frustrated. They claim that under the current fiscal setup, Catalonia transfers €16 billion annually to the central government, and that these transfers bankrupted the region. Now, in exchange for the bailout, the central government has imposed austerity measures that cut into health care, education, and other services.

On Thursday, Catalan President Artur Mas met with Prime Minister Mariano Rajoy, originally to beg him for a new tax deal. But the massive demonstration in Barcelona had added independence to the agenda. Rajoy brushed him off, with references to the constitution that didn’t allow regions to secede.

“Constitutions may or may not be modified, but they do not subjugate the will of the people,” Mas lamented after the meeting. As leader of the Democratic Convergence of Catalonia and chairman of the governing Convergència i Unió (CiU) coalition, he represents the middle class and has supported Catalan independence only in an ambiguous manner. Until now. “Catalonia will follow its path,” he said. Parliament would meet next week to “consider the next steps.”

“Illegal and lethal,” howled Foreign Minister José García-Margallo and threatened Catalonia with exclusion from the EU if it chose independence. Decisions in Brussels as to which country will be allowed to accede to the EU have to be unanimous, and Spain’s veto would bar Catalonia “indefinitely,” he said.

Nevertheless, Friday morning, CiU spokesman Francesc Homs pushed that agenda further: after the elections—early elections could be held on November 25—Parliament may initiate the path to independence. This could be by referendum, but there would be alternatives, he said, “for example” a parliamentary vote to declare statehood.

The CiU hasn’t yet decided how to articulate its demand for statehood in its electoral program, but the strategy toward independence is an “irreversible process,” Homs said. He described Spain as a “lion” attacking the Catalan “gazelle” whose sole weapon is “agility.” And the threat of getting kicked out of the EU? “Catalans are European citizens,” he said, and he didn’t know how it would be possible to kick them out. But he wasn’t worried about the all-important business community. “We won’t lose investments if things are expressed democratically,” he said.

The response was immediate. Catalan independence would be a “tremendously huge problem“ for businesses, said Joan Rosell, president of the Spanish Confederation of Employers’ Organizations (CEOE), which represents state-owned and private sector enterprises. Employers, he said, supported a single market as a way out of the current turmoil.

Declaring statehood would have no legal value, Deputy Prime Minister Soraya Saenz de Santamaria declared at a press conference after the Council of Ministers. And the government didn’t welcome early elections, she said; “political instability” would aggravate the crisis. But she threw Mas a bone: the government would be willing to consider reforming the financing model of the Autonomous Regions.

A discussion of the nitty-gritty of independence has broken out. Hot topic: the distribution of central government debt. Would Catalonia have to carry 20% or 16%? Or none because Spain issued the bonds and not Catalonia? Would Catalonia be better off within Spain or as independent state? Would it even be financially viable? Rumors are swirling that members of the governing coalition have asked the European Commission if Spain can legally stop Catalans from seceding, and if it can expel an independent Catalonia from the EU via its veto power. As there is no law that would allow secession, there is also no law regulating it. So everything is up in the air. But the fact that this is getting serious attention, shows just how far the process has already gone.

And the military staked out its role. Colonel Francisco Alaman promised to crush the “vultures” if they chose independence. “Independence for Catalonia? Over my dead body,” he said. “Even if the lion is sleeping, don’t provoke the lion, because he will show the ferocity proven over centuries.” Words of the crazed fringe? Apparently not. “Deeply-rooted thinking in large parts of the armed forces,” explained retired Lt-Gen Pedro Pitarch. And it opened a whole new chapter in the Eurozone saga that, despite all assurances to the contrary, simply keeps getting more uncertain.

When the German Constitutional Court nodded with a stern smile on the ESM bailout fund and the Fiscal Union treaty, politicians breathed a sigh of relief. The German revolt was over. But steam is billowing once again from the misaligned pipes of the Eurozone, this time in France, where the Fiscal Union treaty had been silenced to death. Read….

US taxpayers paid more to Israeli defense budget than Israelis

Alison Weir – Veterans Today Sept 17, 2012

The Israeli army’s chief of staff states that in the past three years, “US taxpayers have contributed more to the Israeli defense budget than Israeli taxpayers,” according to a report in the Jerusalem Post, a prominent Israeli newspaper.

According to the report, Lieutenant-General Gabi Ashkenazi made the statement during a speech on September 11th. In it he emphasized: “We must preserve ties with the United States. I believe this is a security necessity.”

According to the newspaper the speech was at the Calcalist Conference, which appears to be an annual event in Tel Aviv sponsored by the Calcalist newspaper, an Israeli Hebrew-only daily financial newspaper. It is is part of the group that publishes Yedioth Ahronoth, the largest circulation newspaper in Israel.

American taxpayers give Israel over $3 billion per year (over $8 million per day), more than to any other nation, despite the fact that Israel is smaller than New Jersey and is in the top 30 richest countries in the world.

Per capita, Israelis receive $10,000 more U.S. tax money than average.

Some of the other top recipients of US tax money, Egypt and Jordan, were provided this assistance in return for diplomatic recognition of the Israeli state.

According to the Congressional Research Service, Israel is given this money in a lump sum at the beginning of the fiscal year. Americans then pay interest on money they have given to Israel, while Israel makes interest on it.

In recent years Israel has reported a lower unemployment rate than the US and a better account balance

Ashkenazi’s statements are extremely significant, since this is the first time that an Israeli leader has pointed out that American taxpayers pay more to Israel’s defense budget than do Israelis.

If the costs of the Iraq war, which was largely pushed by Israel partisans in the Bush administration, were added into the equation, the American tax money on behalf of Israel would quite likely dwarf the amount paid by Israeli taxpayers.

Some top economists predict that the cost of the Iraq war will be $3 trillion.

Israel has a population of about 7 million people.

Today, Israel partisans are similarly pushing attacks on Iran.

Israel has frequently been accused of using American funds in violation of U.S. arms control laws.

 Ashkenazi and War Crimes Accusations

IN 2010 Turkey issued an arrest warrant for Ashkenazi for Israeli forces’ killing of 9 civilians, including one who held American citizenship.

In 2008 a complaint was filed at the Hague accusing Ashkenazi of war crimes. Accusers stated:

On 27th December 2008, the suspect, Chief of Staff, ordered the Israeli army to attack densely populated areas in the Gaza Strip. For three weeks, 1,500 tons of bombs were dropped from the air on residential neighborhoods in Gaza and tens of thousands of artillery shells were fired from tanks. For 3 weeks, the army damaged and destroyed houses, schools, hospitals, infrastructure, water and electrical plants, killed more than 1,300 people, hundreds of them children, and injured about 5,300 people. Thousands of houses were bombed or shelled and 50,000 residents were made homeless, without shelter.

Prior to this, the suspect was part of a group, which implemented a siege on 1.5 million people in the Gaza Strip, denying them a regular supply of food, water, medicine, fuel and electricity for 18 months.

According to international law, it is absolutely prohibited to bomb residential areas in a way that interrupts the lives of civilians; to carry out executions without trial, to collectively punish; to destroy or damage hospitals, schools and homes. The prohibitions against collective punishment were enshrined in the Geneva Conventions after the behavior of the Nazis in Europe during World War II when they destroyed entire villages to punish residents for sheltering the resistance. 194 countries agree with the prohibitions of the Fourth Geneva Convention.

In December 2008, a complaint was filed in the Hague against the suspect, on suspicion that he had committed war crimes and crimes against humanity for ordering the siege of Gaza


Iran Says Nuclear Equipment Was Sabotaged

Associated Press – September 23, 2012

Iran on Saturday accused the German technology company Siemens of planting tiny explosives inside equipment Iran bought for its disputed nuclear program, a charge Siemens denied.

Aladdin Boroujerdi, a prominent lawmaker, said Iranian security experts discovered the explosives and removed them before detonation. The authorities believe that the booby-trapped equipment was sold to derail uranium enrichment efforts, he said.

Siemens said its nuclear division had had no business with Iran since the 1979 revolution.

Any sale of nuclear equipment to Iran is banned under United Nations sanctions, raising the possibility that if the country indeed has some, it was acquired through third parties.

Mr. Boroujerdi did not say when or how Iran had obtained Siemens equipment. Despite a wide array of international sanctions, Germany remains one of Iran’s most important trading partners.

The United States and its allies suspect that Iran’s nuclear work is aimed at producing weapons. Iran says it wants to enrich uranium only for peaceful purposes, and asserts that it has been the target of a concerted campaign by Israel, the United States and their allies to undermine its nuclear efforts covertly.

Some Iranian officials have also suggested that specific European companies sold faulty equipment to Iran with the knowledge of American intelligence agencies and their own governments, since the sales would have harmed the country’s nuclear program.

Fereydoon Abbasi, Iran’s most senior nuclear energy official, said on Monday that separate explosions — which he attributed to sabotage — had cut power supplies to Iran’s two main enrichment facilities.


Unplugging the New World Odor

Henry Makow Ph.D. – (Slightly revised from 14/6/09.)

If there were a webcam in the Monkey House at the local zoo, would you watch it?
Then, why watch TV or go to the movies? Why cruise the Internet or listen to most music? It’s the same thing as watching the chest pounding, screeching, defecating and copulating of monkeys. Of course humans outdo monkeys with mindless killing and mayhem.
If not a Monkey House, then the world increasingly resembles a hive which, thanks to the mass media, vibrates at the same frequency. For example, when the stock market is plummeting, everyone is panicking. (When Money is God, an economic downturn becomes a spiritual crisis.)
But there are other causes for the gloom: the spreading knowledge that our institutions  (government, media, education, religion etc.)  have been subverted and society now has no way of self-correcting.
The world feels like a roller coaster; we are holding on for dear life. Perhaps we need to let go. Perhaps we need to vibrate at our own unique frequency.
Perhaps I would be more effective if I devoted more energy to my private life. The external world is negating my private world even though it hasn’t physically impinged on it yet. I have impoverished myself by my constant focus on the Monkey House. I don’t think I am alone in this.
Our minds are like blotters, hoping to find a reflection of our ideals in the world. We need to turn the mirror around so the back faces the world. We need to use our personal lives (not the world) to reflect our ideals.
I envy people who can make God, Jesus or Mohamed the focus of all their thoughts. I often resolve to read the lives and saying of mystics. Clearly I need another focus. Family. Sports. A hobby.

Iran’s Revolutionary Guard says expects Israel to launch war

Reuters – September 22, 2012

Israel will eventually go beyond threats and will attack Iran, the commander of Iran’s Revolutionary Guards was quoted as saying on Saturday.

As speculation mounts that Israel could launch air strikes on Iran before U.S. elections in November, Mohammad Ali Jafari told a news conference that the Jewish state would be destroyed if it took such a step.

“Their threats only prove that their enmity with Islam and the revolution is serious, and eventually this enmity will lead to physical conflict,” Jafari said when asked about Israeli threats to strike Iran’s nuclear facilities, the Iranian Students’ News Agency (ISNA) reported.

“We are making all efforts to increase our defensive capabilities so that if there is an attack … we could defend ourselves and other countries that need our help with high defensive capabilities.”

Jafari’s comments, made at an Islamic Revolutionary Guard Corps (IRGC) military exhibition, come as Israeli leaders have increased their rhetoric against Iran.

“A war will occur, but it’s not clear where or when it will be,” Jafari was quoted as saying on Saturday. “Israel seeks war with us, but it’s not clear when the war will occur.”

“Right now they see war as the only method of confrontation,” he said.

Israel, which bombed an Iraqi nuclear reactor in 1981 and launched a similar strike against Syria in 2007, has threatened to do the same in Iran if diplomatic efforts fail to stop the nuclear work it believes is aimed at getting weapons capability.

Iran, which says its nuclear work is for peaceful means, has said it could strike U.S. military bases in the region as well as Israel if attacked.

“If they (Israel) start something, they will be destroyed and it will be the end of the story for them,” Jafari said, according to ISNA.


BBC Promote Unheard-Of ‘Spoiler’ Party

Kevin Boyle – No One To Vote For Sept 22, 2012

Why is the BBC starting to intensively promote a political party no one has even heard of………while many small parties with significant numbers of members get hardly any airtime at all?
The BBC News tonight (Saturday 22nd Sept) had a short news item reporting on the ‘English Democrats’ conference taking place near Leicester today.
The Guardian too has been covering the English Democrats. These people are, seemingly, a splinter group that has separated from UKIP.
UKIP, for those who might not know, have been stealing large numbers of votes from amongst disillusioned Tories, particularly, but also from the once-loved-but-now-viscerally-loathed Labour Party.
UKIP is seriously threatening the red-team-blue-team-yellow-team one-party-state status quo. Their leader, Nigel Farage, is making lots of fans by making speeches like this and this and this.
The BBC (i.e. the establishment) promotion of the ‘English Democrats’ is surely devised to split the UKIP vote and thus nullify demands that Mr Farage is making (from an increasing position of strength) that he would ‘do a deal’ with the Tories or Labour, provided he got a “cast iron guarantee” that a free and fair referendum of the British people would be held on our membership of the European Union.
Such a vote would present a serious threat to the international communist banking goal of eliminating nation states.
Therefore it appears that (apologies to any suicidalists who are honestly committed to this party):
The English Democratic Party are effectively working to destroy the chances of the very policies they promote.
The English Democrats are sponsored establishment poison.
Understand this and if you want us out of Europe there is only one party to vote for and it ain’t these witless wreckers.
The English Democrats will again be featured on ‘The Politics Show’ tomorrow.
BBC overlords divide-and-rule one more time (but it won’t be the last).

The Meaning of Life and the Meaning of Ourselves

Visible Origami – Sept 22, 2012

Dog Poet Transmitting…….
May your noses always be cold and wet.
Never have I seen it so crazy as it is right now. This morning I went looking for our dog Alfie. He was nowhere to be found. I was pretty sure the lady who rents the apartment below our house had lost him because he is always hanging out there. I couldn’t find him anywhere. I search the house. Finally I looked in the basement, into a locked room; doors locked on both sides and… and? He was in there. There is no earthly explanation for this. It defies the laws of gravity, possibility, whatever. I wasn’t down there and there is no way he got past the door on his own. Inexplicable, totally inexplicable. Good thing I found him and would not stop looking. He woulda been toast in a couple of days; worse than toast actually.
I can’t figure out what is going on. There’s a chain letter going around that has to do with me; first I heard about it. All kinds of things are taking place without my knowledge. How strange is strange? It’s stranger than strange. It’s new and improved strange. It’s reconstituted strange. It’s strange with asterisks. It’s stranger than fiction. It makes fiction look like dead things that go bump in the night.
Welcome, welcome to Dog Poet Transmitting and the saucer pod where we seldom know what’s happening but we do our best. We seek meaning. We seek authenticity. We seek truth. We seek. Tonight we are sailing in the saucer pod across lands yet to be created, across new landscapes yet to be invented. We seek, the undefined and the indefinable. We are like you, buffeted by winds and words that come out of nowhere. Is it real? Is anything real? We are not here, we are everywhere.
Massive changes await. We don’t know what they are. Massive changes await both within and without. It is intimidating, certainly frightening, scary stuff. Stuff that waits in the darkness which is potential light unrevealed. It’s not really darkness. We are the darkness, like being in a womb, unborn. Somehow we got things backwards. We saw darkness as light and light as darkness so when the darkness speaks to us it seems like light and when the light speaks to us it sounds like darkness.
How far away is the thing that we seek? Our mind tells us it is far ahead somewhere, off to the side, behind us perhaps but somewhere out of reach, always out of reach and it has remained out of reach for lifetimes, following life times. It is not far away at all and that is why we can’t find it. It’s part of us. It is inside us. It is closer to us than we are to ourselves. It is waiting for the moment of surrender and that is what all these difficulties of life are about. They are there to break us down, to show us what our helplessness is and we cannot surrender until we see and embrace our helplessness. As long as we do not recognize our helplessness. We are helping ourselves to avoid what we are in the defense of what we are not. We are living as what we are not and that is why we are on the wheel of pursuing what we are and we go on as what we are not finding new variations of what we are not and there is no end to the variations of what we are not and each variation of what we are not looks like some new variation of what we are. There are no variations to what we are. It is non-variable and we cannot bear the sameness of what we are. It is our inability to bear the sameness that forces us to seek the variable. This is why we are sensation seekers. This is why we embrace trivia.
We have no we. We have me and me is not real so the real of me we do not have either. Does this make sense? We certainly hope so. This is a massive stumbling block. It is why we do not connect with ourselves and we do not connect with others. The unreal in us cannot connect to the real in others. People sit at the feet of masters for their whole lives but do not get what is being emanated and projected from within, as an expression of what is real in everyone. They are focused on the external expression of something that cannot be represented by that. It is merely the transmitting device. You cannot fall in love with the transmitting device but you do. That is not why the teacher is there. It is the same with the teacher within. We are that teacher within. We are not the transmitting device that we imagine ourselves to be. We go on thinking of ourselves as the flute instead of the flute player. It’s why we can’t make the real music that the flute contains.
I’m hoping we can get to the heart of things and not continue to see ourselves as the chest which contains the heart or even the heart rather than what the heart contains. We are focused on the husk instead of the kernel. The kernel knows itself. The husk knows nothing. The husk is like the chaff as opposed to the wheat. The chaff does not bring forth new wheat.
On and on it goes and where it stops, nobody knows because, we are all nobody lacking the essential somebody. How did we get into this predicament. You can say that it started in what is called the Garden of Eden and our being cast out of paradise is what it is all about. We cast out, so we are told because we ate the apple and discovered that we were naked and felt ashamed so we hid from the lord. What does it all mean?
All these scriptures that we read have a deeper meaning that what we are reading. Who is reading these things? The false self is reading them. How can they mean anything to the false self? They mean something to the false self, insofar as the false self can find meaning appropriate to the false self. You hear talk about the hidden mysteries. You may have read about these mysteries. You may know about the veil of the High Priestess. You may have heard about passing behind the veil of the High Priestess which closes forever behind the neophyte who is no longer a neophyte. There is no High Priestess outside of you. The High Priestess is within, in a secret place within. She discloses the truth to the seeker. This truth cannot be gained anywhere else. It goes deeper and deeper within and you are no longer what you were. There is no longer the one that you were. This is a process of initiation. There is a great temple within. There are residents there. They mean something. They are archetypes. They are resonating eternals. They make up the components of what you really are. They are the vibrating housing of the infinite. What I am saying is what I am saying and not what I am saying. Faith is the substance of things unseen. Faith is the SUBSTANCE of things unseen. You are the origin of things unseen.
Why is it so seemingly impossible for us to arrive at the Christed state? Why are we so full of doubt? Why we see and not see? Why do we hear and yet not hear? Why do we fear external authority and give it power over us when it has no power? Greater is that which is in you than that which is in the world. If God is for me, who can be against me? We hear these phrases and we think we know what they mean but why are we not employing them? Why do we not employ what we hear? How can we hear something and remain deaf to it? How can we see something and not see it? This is a mystery, isn’t it? This is a great and enduring mystery. How can we tremble on the web of the great spider of Maya and have it drink our blood and be unaware that it is happening to us? How can we drink of the dream waters, the waters of Lethe and seek deeper sleep? This is not our real self doing this. This is our false self dragging us deeper and deeper into the murk. We are trying to hide from ourselves but we cannot accomplish that, not forever. Meanwhile our suffering continues unabated. Our suffering is the hallmark of our struggle. Why do we struggle? We struggle against surrender because we are unwilling to trust. We are unwilling to trust because we lack the faith and we lack the faith because we put both our trust and faith in what is not real. If we had but the faith of a mustard seed. If we had but the faith of a mustard seed.
What is going on? What is going on? What is not going on? Why do we walk around massive lies that we know to be massive lies and are indifferent to this? Why do we carry the truth around with us and are indifferent to it? Fear plays a great part in all of this. We fear exposing the existence of the lies to ourselves. It’s the Emperor’s New Clothes. All the truth we need to know is revealed in children’s fables. We find ourselves unable to become as a little child. What is going on? Why do we do this to ourselves? Why do we always hurt the one we love and cater to those who hurt us? C’mon people, get with the program. Who is this program being brought to us by? Who is the sponsor?
We are watching a lie take place every day and we are encouraging it. It makes us feel in solidarity with our fellows. We cannot bear the great aloneness but we are alone. We have always been alone because we are disconnected. Death is our greatest friend because death continually free us from the snares we get ourselves caught in. We rail against our liberator and we crucify him, over and over again. Thus ends the written portion of our communication today. This is a part of tonight’s radio show and you will have that sometime this weekend. I felt it important to put this into writing so you would have it.
End Transmission…….
The radio show will be up some time this weekend.

“As The War Drums Beat”

Merlin Miller – The Ugly Truth September 20, 2012

I contemplate my recent trip to the Islamic Republic of Iran and ask myself who wants war between America and Iran. I quickly surmise that it is not the American people, nor the Iranian people, but globalists (international bankers and their multinational beneficiaries). They control Israel, the American media and most of our politicians…and by extension our foreign policy.
My journey to this exotic and little understood land began with an invitation to “New Horizon – The First International Independent Filmmakers Festival”. It was a conference and festival held in Tehran from September 2nd through September 7th. Filmmakers and intellectuals from around the world attended. It was one of the most stimulating experiences that I have ever had and an effective bridge between diverse cultures and perspectives – with the purpose of promoting truth, justice, liberty, and peace.
This initiative was undertaken, not by America or other world leaders, but by a country unfairly besieged with sanctions and threats of war. My observations were in stark contrast to the perceptions of most Americans. What I experienced was a devout country with a love of God, family, and nation – and an uncompromising respect for the noblest of human endeavors.
As I write this, a giant, beautiful book, Rubaiyat of Omar Khayyam, lies next to me. Khayyam’s wonderful poems have survived the test of time and are a testament to the normally peaceful spirit of the Persian people. This treasure was given to me by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad. Inside its back cover, he inscribed the following for me (transcribed from Farsi):

In the name of God who loves human beings.

My dear brother:
I, you, we and all of us are pursuing truth and happiness for human beings, which is unfortunately a victim of world powers.
This is a historical opportunity to undermine all inhuman relations and put an end to prejudices, which have questioned the truths and separates them, to build a new beautiful world based on love, justice and beauty.
This is a historical and certainly achievable objective. It only needs our hands, minds and hearts to join each other.
I pray Great God to bless you, who love humanity and wish success for all. I hope to meet you in a better future.

M. Ahmadinejad
September 8, 2012

I found President Ahmadinejad to be a humble man with a firm handshake and intense, intelligent eyes. Despite his courteous and dignified bearing, he has been regularly berated, and routinely misrepresented, by a controlled western media. Is their demonization justified, or has he been targeted as the lone political figure standing against Zionist powers? This is my attempt to represent truths, such that the world might have a better understanding of Iran, its people, and its leadership.
The Iranian people are similar to Europeans in appearance…a beautiful people, poised and kind. Their women wear clothing which modestly cover them, but in elegant fashion and with serene faces that are usually exposed. They return smiles and are not treated as second class citizens, as we have been conditioned to believe. In fact, they outnumber men in higher education enrollments. There is no profanity and women are safe on any Tehran street – at any time of day or night. The influences of western civilization have not been totally removed, but the Iranians resist the decadence of cultural-Marxism. I attribute this largely to their faith and love of family. I was surprised to discover that the Islamic faith actually honors Jesus and Christianity. However, through Zionist media control, policy dictates, and other manipulations, the Christian world is incessantly convinced that Muslims should be our enemies and that we should be theirs.
Muslims look with jaundiced eye upon the outrageous media lies and perpetual assaults on their faith and culture. Hollywood’s promotion of twisted films can provoke extremist reactions, and we are then led to believe that Muslims are all radicals. We never question the bizarre promotion of these divisive, Zionist inspired productions, or the actions of multinational interests in the internal affairs of sovereign Islamic nations. Were we to look honestly at the many false portrayals, we would see remarkable similarities to how our Christian communities have also been assaulted – increasingly with contempt and disrespect by these same Zionist and Cultural Marxist propagandists. They seek a globalist new world order – devoid of the diversity and freedoms associated with independent nation states.
As I wandered from the festival grounds to meet people on the streets, I found them to be most helpful and without animosity – despite my obvious American nationality. I enjoyed their exotic food and came to appreciate the craftsmanship of their products. The only negative sensation that I had was in witnessing the mad house traffic situation in Tehran. A city of 15 million, it has grown faster that it’s infrastructure. Despite this, the city is thriving with new construction and beautiful parks and monuments – which reflect a noble and accomplished people. The Iranians seemingly love Americans, but are rightly concerned and critical of our irrational and invasive government policies. The common response seems to be “why would your country want to attack us?”
The current condemnation of Iran is supposedly due to the possibility that they may develop nuclear weapons. We should all work for a world free from nuclear threat, but the sovereignty of nations must also be respected. Iran is signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and has opened their facilities for inspection, declaring their interest is for energy development only. No evidence to the contrary has been shown, and Iran’s Supreme Leader, the Ayatollah Khamenei condemns nuclear weaponry – actually declaring a “Fatwa” against them – as it is contrary to their nation’s faith. However, Israel, their chief accuser (and architect behind the campaign to falsely accuse Iraq of possessing “weapons of mass destruction”), is believed to possess over 300 nuclear weapons. Israel is not signatory to the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty and has no intention of sharing information or opening their facilities for inspection – yet America continues to march to their fanatical war drums against others. Why is there no pressure on Israel to meet the same standards and why are we imposing “sanctions” against a nation that has done us no wrong? It is a preliminary act of war, and only imposed because Israeli lobbies demand it of our lap-dog politicians, who incredibly serve Zionist interests rather than the American people.
Iran is a strategic rival for regional hegemony in the resource rich middle-east and has stood strong for Islamic unity. They also courageously and most justifiably call for an end to the Palestinian occupation – the ruthless suppression of an enslaved people, largely funded by America. There is no greater injustice than that being perpetrated against the Palestinian people. World condemnation, through the United Nations is consistently blocked by U.S. actions on the Security Council. As a result, the Non Aligned Nations Movement (NAM) is growing as an alternative to the UN. Its recent success is not generally reported in Western media, but 120 nations came together in Tehran the week before the New Horizon Film Festival – in unity and in opposition to the evils of the Israeli occupation of Palestine. The Secretary General of the United Nations even attended, as well as observers from Russia and China. The Palestinian occupation and Israeli aggressions (including “false flag” operations against other nations) are at the root of the discontents for Zionism.
As President Ahmadinejad gave me copy of Khayyam’s works, I gave him copy of my western motion picture, “Jericho”, and my political book, “Our Vision for America”. When I asked him what messages I might convey to the American people, he indicated “truths” and “Iran’s desire for peace”. Through lies and evil acts, Globalists and Zionists falsely portray Iran, as they seek conflict between nations. I later told him that our State Department should be meeting with Iran’s leaders and not depending on the initiatives of private citizens, like me. However, I hope that he and the Iranian people take hope in the prospect that many patriotic Americans are awakening to the evils that have consumed us, even while our politicians continue to betray the otherwise good spirit and traditions of the American people. Growing numbers seek answers that might save America and truly promote world peace.
Americans do not want war, and are beginning to realize that our politicians, of both major parties, initiate these actions against the wishes of the American people – and in accord with the intrigues of international bankers and their Zionist agents. It is time we stopped them by creating alternatives in politics, and in media. Iran sees the need and is taking appropriate initiatives, and so should America.
I went to Iran to promote the prospects for producing “False Flag”, a critically important motion picture. I returned to America more committed than ever to produce this political thriller and, through commercial entertainment, help awaken a sleeping America. Vital truths must be revealed so that new evils are not perpetrated against the people of America and Iran, with destructive effects resonating throughout the world. I also return committed to building a viable third party, which will represent traditional working class Americans, rather than perpetuating a corrupt two party system, which serves special global interests. God willing, my answer to the courageous efforts of President Ahmadinejad is “I also hope to meet you in a better future”.

Topless Kate, 2 Massacres and an Initiation

Sandra Barr – truthseeker444 September 21, 2012

Dating back to the very earliest civilisations Goddesses are depicted with their breasts exposed, from Babylon to Sumeria, Egypt, Greece and Rome, goddesses were depicted with their breasts exposed.
Ordinary peasants were never depicted bare chested, just Goddesses.
When the pictures of Kate topless hit the front pages, I immediately smelled a rat; it all seemed so staged…

Catholics call for Israeli hate-crime crackdown

Russia Today – Sept 20, 2012

Trappist monk walks past graffiti that reads 'Jesus monkey' in Hebrew, sprayed on the walls of the Latrun monastry between Jerusalem and Tel Aviv

A spate of hate crimes against Christian places of worship in Israel has prompted usually reticent Roman Catholic officials to speak out, hoping that intervention by authorities might bring an end to the vandalism.

­In the early hours of September 4, vandals set fire to the door of a renowned Trappist monastery in Latrun (outside Jerusalem) and defaced it with anti-Christian graffiti, stating “Jesus is a monkey”.

In the two weeks which have elapsed since the act of desecration, no arrests have been made, despite police vows that the culprits would be brought to justice. Similar incidences of vandalism also occurred in the months preceding this attack.

The Rev. Pierbattista Pizzaballa, one of the church’s top officials in the Holy Land, expressed deep concern over the state of relations between Jews and Christians.

In an interview with the Associated Press, Pizzaballa pointed out that because the local Christian population is miniscule, they aren’t taken into consideration by “the majority”. Approximately 155,000 of Israel’s citizens are Christian, which equates to less than 2 per cent of the population.

He stated that “the main atmosphere is ignorance.”

However, he also told AP that the minority Christian population may not have invested “enough energy and initiatives” in reaching out to Israeli Jews.

The “custos” (custodians) of Catholic holy sites, including Pizzaballa, have issued a declaration, calling on leaders to act. Although he recognizes that the arson and vandalism that Christians have been victims of are not demonstrative of wider attitudes, he is firm that Israel must do more.

In February this year, a Jerusalem monastery was tagged with the phrase “death to Christians,” painted in Hebrew, as part of what is now known as the “price tag campaign”. In July, an Israeli lawmaker ripped the New Testament out of a Bible and threw it into the garbage, later claiming that “millions of Jews were murdered in the name of the New Testament,” and calling the book “revolting.”

Shortly after the September attack, a statement signed by the Latin Patriarch for Jerusalem, Fouad Twal, and Giorgio Lingua, Apostolic Nuncio for Jordan, the Assembly of Catholics Ordinaries of the Holy Land asked, “what kind of ‘teaching of contempt’ for Christians is being communicated in their schools and in their homes?”

Pizzaballa echoed their concerns, asking AP, “What is going on in Israeli society today that permits Christians to be scapegoated [sic] and targeted by these acts of violence?”


France, allies still mulling Syria no-fly zone

AFP – September 22, 2012

France is still discussing with allies whether to try to set up a no-fly zone in Syria to help rebels under assault from regime forces, a top French official said Friday.

“We are working, but not only us, a lot of countries are working on the issue of a no-fly zone, but for the moment it is clear that it’s very difficult to set up for several reasons,” he said during a visit to Washington.

“We are talking with all our partners, with the Turks, with the Americans, with the Brits, with others,” said the official, who asked not to be named.

But for the moment no decision had been taken, he said, stressing any such move would also need approval from the UN Security Council, where it would likely encounter stiff resistance from veto-bearing nations Russia and China.

“It is a very complex decision for legal reasons and for practical reasons,” the French official stressed.

“The military assessment is that this is extremely complicated. This has to be looked at very carefully by the Pentagon, by our military people, the British military, the Turks.”

Any such partial no-fly zone over Syria would be implemented for humanitarian reasons to help Syrians displaced inside the country as they seek to escape the bloody conflict which has claimed an estimated 29,000 lives, according to Syrian rights monitors.

During a visit to Beirut last week, French Defense Minister Jean-Yves Le Drian ruled out sending weapons to the Syrian opposition or trying to set up a no-fly zone.

“A no-fly zone over all of Syria, or even over a part of it, would mean mobilizing such large means that we would be in a war situation,” he said.

US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton was asked during a trip to Turkey last month whether operational planning being conducted by Washington and its allies included a possible no-fly zone to protect Syrian civilians.

“The issues you posed in your question are exactly the ones the minister and I agreed need greater in-depth analysis,” she said in Istanbul.

“It is one thing to talk about all kinds of potential actions, but you cannot make reasoned decisions without doing intense analysis and operational planning,” she added.
