As of this writing we do not know whether the winds of change
gathering at the
White House and in Vice President Cheney's office will soon sweep
out of the US State Department.
Whether Secretary Rice will also be swept away by those winds of

Vice President Cheney must be enraged over the fact that it was
long time friend and deputy Richard Armitage who was the original
source of the
Valerie Plame leak to Robert Novak.
President Bush must be furious at Armitage.
Was Armitage acting on his own or on Colin Powell's orders?

This all comes on the heels of Secretary Rice's colossal blunder at
the UN in
supporting the notorious "cease fire resolution", rather
than vetoing it as she should have. Secretary Rice appears to have

there will be
no "second resolution" at the U.N. to assure that the situation in

The deteriorating situation in Lebanon as chunk after chunk of the

What is France's real agenda? If there is a hidden agenda on the
part of France
it ought not to be terribly hard to decipher.
France has millions of unruly Moslems who have burned thousands of

anti-Semitic attacks in France against the 600,000 member French
Many of those Moslems are from North Africa, but rather than return

thousands of Lebanese Christians without a peep of complaint from
the U.N. Syria
has falsely claimed to have withdrawn from Lebanon in the aftermath
of what is
widely believed to have been the Syrian assassination of Lebanese

so-called "civilians" that Syria has inserted into Lebanon, a nation
population without that Syrian influx is under 4 million.
Those Syrian fifth columnists constitute a threat to Lebanese

France after all needs a place to deport its millions of unruly

Moreover, Syria has undeveloped oil reserves. Lebanon and Syria are

And France is a nuclear power. It can play its own hand in Lebanon
and Syria if
events play out according to this alleged hidden French agenda.
Israel could not hope or even think of fighting France. The 600,000
would be potent "human shields" for France to hide behind. Nor could
defeat a nuclear armed France even if it wanted to. The best Israel
for is that those 600,000 French Jews might be allowed to immigrate
That Secretary of State Rice was blind-sided by France in all of
becoming increasingly clear. This was not the first time that
bamboozled. This is indeed a dangerous Universe.
There is no doubt that we live in a Dangerous Universe. What can
we do to make life safer for everyone? Let us start with America's
Secretary of State,who clearly is an improvement over those who
have served as U.S. Secretary of State in the recent past. However,
although we strongly supported Condi Rice when she rightfully said
that we do not wish to see the smoking gun of Saddam's weapons of
mass destruction arsenal,(which were used to murder the Kurds and
the Iranians, neither were gassed with jelly beans or
cotton candy, and which we believe were transferred to Syria and
buried, like the monster Saddam himself, under various rocks, from
which people like Saddam had hoped to crawl up from under),to be a
mushroom cloud we are much less than happy about her support for a
so-called "palestinian" state. The world needs no
more terrorist states. The world needs to rid itself of the
terrorist states it already has. So we are quite disturbed about
news articles the the one immediately below and urge that you
contact Secretary of State Rice and President Bush and urge that
they abandon their call for a so-called "palestinian" state.
"Rice: U.S. Could Help Train, Equip Palestinian Forces
February 2, 2005
By Arshad Mohammed
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Secretary of State Condoleezza
Rice on Tuesday held out the possibility of U.S.
support to train and equip Palestinian forces as she
seeks to promote Middle East peace on a visit to the
"Obviously the Palestinians are going to need help in
terms of training and equipping their new security
forces and I am sure that there will be ways that we
might be involved in that," she said.
"We have a long way to go to fully capable Palestinian

"Likely PA Prime Minister a Holocaust-Denier
By Rafael Medoff
Jewishsf.com | February 26, 2003 c.e.
While European Union officials praised Yasser Arafat's decision to
appoint his first-ever prime minister, historians of the Holocaust
winced at the news that a leading candidate for the job is the
author of a book denying that the Nazis murdered 6 million Jews.
The candidate is Mahmoud Abbas (also known as Abu Mazen), Arafat's
second in command, and his book, published in Arabic in 1983,
translates as "The Other Side: The Secret Relations Between Nazism
and the Leadership of the Zionist Movement." It was originally his
doctoral dissertation, completed at Moscow Oriental College.
The book repeatedly attempts to cast doubt on the fact that the
Nazis slaughtered 6 million Jews, according to a translation
provided by the Simon Wiesenthal Center in Los Angeles.
"Following the war," he writes, "word was spread that six million
Jews were amongst the victims and that a war of extermination was
aimed primarily at the Jews...The truth is that no one can either
confirm or deny this figure. In other words, it is possible that the
number of Jewish victims reached six million, but at the same time
it is possible that the figure is much smallerbelow one million."
Abbas denies that the gas chambers were used to murder Jews, quoting
a "scientific study" to that effect by French Holocaust-denier
Abbas' book then asserts: "The historian and author Raoul Hilberg
thinks that the figure does not exceed 890,000."
That is, of course, utterly false. Hilberg, a distinguished
historian and author of the classic study "The Destruction of the
European Jews," has never said or written any such thing.
Abbas believes the 6 million figure is the product of a Zionist
conspiracy: "It seems that the interest of the Zionist movement...is
to inflate this figure so that their gains will be greater," he
writes. "This led them to emphasize this figure in order to gain the
solidarity of international public opinion with Zionism. Many
scholars have debated the figure of six million and reached stunning
conclusionsfixing the number of Jewish victims at only a few
Another falsehood. In fact, no serious scholar proposes such a
After reducing the magnitude of the Nazi slaughter so that it no
longer seems to have been a full-scale Holocaust, Abbas seeks to
absolve the Nazis by blaming the Zionist leadership for whatever
killings did take place. According to Abbas, "A partnership was
established between Hitler's Nazis and the leadership of the Zionist
movement...[the Zionists gave] permission to every racist in the
world, led by Hitler and the Nazis, to treat Jews as they wish, so
long as it guarantees immigration to Palestine."
In addition to encouraging the persecution of Jews so they would
immigrate to the Holy Land, the Zionist leaders actually wanted Jews
to be murdered, becausein Abbas' words"having more victims meant
greater rights and stronger privilege to join the negotiation table
for dividing the spoils of war once it was over. However, since
Zionism was not a fighting partnersuffering victims in a battleit
had no escape but to offer up human beings, under any name, to raise
the number of victims, which they could then boast of at the moment
Perhaps sentiments of this sort were common within Abbas' circle of
graduate students in the Soviet Union in the 1970s. But in the free
world, such propaganda has never been accepted as serious
In most Western countries, Holocaust-deniers have been treated as
pariahs. In Canada and many European countries, Holocaust-denial is
a criminal offense. In New Zealand, Canterbury University recently
issued an apology for having accepting a master's thesis denying the
Holocaust, while the French minister of education revoked a doctoral
degree that was awarded to a Holocaust-denier by the University of
Nantes. A Polish university professor who denied the Holocaust was
suspended from his position. The Japanese publisher Bungei Shunju
shut down one of its magazines for printing an article denying the
International pressure compelled Croatian President Franjo Tudjman
to publicly retract statements in his book doubting that the
Holocaust had taken place. Austrian Freedom Party leader Jorg Haider
was ostracized by the international community for his remarks
praising members of the SS, as was French politician Jean Marie Le
Pen, for questioning the existence of the gas chambers and
belittling the significance of the Holocaust. A recent poll found 64
percent of Americans believe world leaders should likewise refuse to
meet with Abbas.
Yet some in the media have treated Abbas with kid gloves, to say the
least. The official BCC News Profile of Abbas reports: "A highly
intellectual man, Abbas studied law in Egypt before doing a Ph.D. in
Moscow. He is the author of several books." The New York Times
recently characterized Abbas as "a lawyer and historian...He holds a
doctorate in history from the Moscow Oriental College; his topic was
Zionism." Neither the BBC nor the Times offered any further
explanation as to the contents of Abbas' writings.
Bestowing the title "historian" upon Mahmoud Abbas awards his
writings a stature they do not deserve, and deals a grievous insult
to every genuine historian.
If Abbas is elevated to the post of prime minister of the
Palestinian Authority, not only the media but the entire
international community will be confronted with the question of
whether Abbas deserves to be treated any differently from Tudjman,
Haider and Le Pen.

Ex-Colleague Says Armitage Was Source of CIA Leak
By R. Jeffrey Smith
Washington Post Staff Writer
Tuesday, August 29, 2006; Page A06
The leak of information about an undercover CIA employee that
provoked a special
prosecutor's investigation of senior White House officials came from
Secretary of State Richard L. Armitage, according to a former
at the department.
Armitage told newspaper columnist Robert D. Novak in the summer of
Valerie Plame, the wife of a prominent critic of the Iraq war,
worked for the
CIA, the colleague said. In October of that year, Armitage admitted
State Department officials that he had made the remark, which was
based on a
classified report he had read.
Powell's history as a witness is somewhat checkered to say the least.
"It was Powell whom President Reagan summoned to the White House to
help National Security Advisor Frank Carlucci clean up the mess after
the Iran-contra debacle." Below is excerpted from:
"Behind Colin Powell's Legend-Saving Reagan By Robert Parry & Norman
"We need you, Colin," the familiar voice of new national security
Frank Carlucci pleaded over the phone in December 1986. "This is
serious. Believe me, the presidency is at stake." With those words,
Colin Powell re-entered the Iran-contra affair, a set of events he
dangerously advanced in January 1986when he arranged missile
deliveries to Iran , while keeping Pentagon colleagues in the dark.
just as Powell played an important behind-the-scenes role in those
missile shipments, he would be equally instrumental in the next
the scandal's cover-up in 1987-88 The documentary record-some of it
recently declassified at the request of The Consortium-reveals
disturbing new questions about Colin Powell's own "character and
competence," including clear discrepancies in his sworn testimony.
But in late 1986, as Carlucci called Powell in West Germany , the
House needed some cool heads and some steady hands. President Reagan
was reeling day after day from disclosures of the reckless
arms-for-hostage scheme with Iran and diversion of money to the
Nicaraguan contra rebels.
After sounding Powell out about his willingness to join the National
Council staff, Carlucci made sure he could wall Powell off from the
Dec. 9, 1986, the
White House obtained from the FBI a statement that Powell was not a
criminal suspect. The next day, Carlucci asked Defense Secretary
Caspar Weinberger "to call Peter Wallison, WH Counsel-to tell them
Colin had no connection with Iran arms sales-except to carry out
President's order," Weinberger wrote down. He then "called Peter
Wallison-Told him Colin Powell had only minimum involvement on
With Carlucci satisfied that his old friend, Powell, could sidestep
the spreading Iran-contra stain, Reagan formally asked the general on
Dec. 12, 1986, to quit his post as commander of V Corps in West
Germany and to become deputy national security adviser. Powell
accepted, taking over those new duties on Jan. 2, 1987. As always,
Powell took to his task energetically.
To put the Iran-contra scandal behind the White House, he help ed
limited mea-culpa speech by Reagan on March 4, 1987. The president
arms-for-hostage deal "was a mistake." But Powell failed to force in
some phrasing exonerating his patron, Weinberger, and by inference,
Colin Powell. A Confident General Powell testified before both the
congressional committees and special prosecutor Lawrence Walsh.
Under oath, the general asserted that he did not know about the
arms shipments to Iran a key point given the fact that those arms
transfers represented a felony under the Arms Export Control Act. He
insisted that he did not know that U.S. weapons were being shipped
until mid-January 1986 when President Reagan signed a "finding" that
made the deliveries legal.
The distinction was crucial to Powell's
defense of himself and Weinberger. Powell stuck to his story even as
evidence emerged proving that he and Weinberger were reading
top-secret intelligence intercepts in September and October 1985 in
which Iranians described the delivery of U.S. weapons. The Consortium
obtained one of those reports, dated Oct. 2, 1985. It was marked
"SECRET SPOKE ORCON" and was signed by Lt. Gen. William Odom, the
director of the National Security Agency. The sensitive electronic
intercept had picked up a phone conversation a day earlier between
Iranian officials, identified as "Mr. Asghari" who was in Europe and
"Mohsen Kangarlu" who was in Tehran . "A large part of the
had to do with details on the delivery of several more shipments of
weapons into Iran ," wrote Odom in the "exclusive" report which went
only to top officials at CIA, the NSC and the Pentagon. "Asghari then
pressed Kangarlu to provide a list of what he wanted the `other four
planes' to bring. ... Kangarlu said that he already had provided a
list. Asghari said that those items were for the first two planes.
Asghari reminded Kangarlu that there were Phoenix missiles on the
second plane which were not on the first. ...[Asghari] said that a
flight would be made this week."
When asked about this and other
touchy points by congressional investigators on June 19, 1987, Powell
pleaded a weak memory. He repeatedly used phrases such as "I cannot
specifically recall." At one point, Powell said, "To my recollection,
I don't have a recollection." When asked if Weinberger kept a diary,
Powell responded, "The Secretary, to my knowledge, did not keep a
diary. Whatever notes he kept, I don't know how he uses them or what
does with them. He does not have a diary of this ilk, no." As for his
own notebooks from the Iran-contra period, Powell announced that he
had destroyed them.
Weinberger offered similar testimony, claiming
that he took notes "occasionally, but comparatively rarely" and that
they were not "kept in any formal way." Whatever their condition,
however, Weinberger's notes were not delivered to Congress or to the
special prosecutor. That gap of evidence was crucial in the failure
the early Iran-contra investigations to breach the White House
stonewall. Fall-Guy Plan In 1987, the White House cover story-blaming
the scandal on Oliver North and other out-of-control NSC
officers-held, even though North had publicly denounced the official
version as a "fall-guy plan." Thanks in no small part to Powell's
fencing with his inquisitors, the investigation was blunted, Ronald
Reagan's presidency was saved and George Bush could tell the voters
that he had been "out-of-the-loop" on Iran-contra.
The Consortium investigation found that Powell's records at the NSC
and at the
Pentagon revealed no information about-or apparent interest
in-longstanding allegations that the contras engaged in cocaine
trafficking -(Ironically, recent disclosures in federal court records
cite Bermudez as the contra leader who gave a green light to massive
contra cocaine shipments into the United States .) After Congress
its Iran-contra investigation in fall 1987, Powell mounted a
counter-attack -To his surprise, though, Powell was not quite through
with Iran-contra. In 1991, Walsh's investigators stumbled upon
Weinberger's long-lost notes which had been filed away in an obscure
corner of the Library of Congress. Among those papers was a note from
Oct. 3, 1985. It indicated that Weinberger had received information
from an NSA intercept that Iran was receiving "arms transfers"-the
point that Powell had tried so hard to obscure.
The belated discovery of Weinberger's diaries led to the former
indictment for obstruction of justice. The notes also prompted Powell
to submit a pro-Weinberger affidavit that stunningly contradicted
Powell's own earlier sworn testimony in which he had insisted that
Weinberger maintained no "diaries." In the affidavit dated April 21,
1992, however, Powell argued that he regarded Weinberger's daily
as a "personal diary" and that it was "entirely possible" that
Weinberger would not have understood these personal papers to be
within the scope of the Iran-contra document requests. Though the
contradiction was clear, Powell was never held to account.. The only
threat to Powell's reputation would be the trial of Caspar Weinberger
which was scheduled to start in January 1993 and which listed Powell
as a prospective witness. Bush -pardon(ed ) Weinberger, on Christmas
Eve 1992. Weinberger thus was spared a trial-and Powell was saved the
embarrassment of public attention over his dubious role in the

contributions to foreign policy and national security. James A.

executive officer of Enron Corp., presented the award at a ceremony
prior to the afternoon panel discussion on politico-military factors
and the future of warfare. "I am deeply honored to be the first

said. In his remarks, he thanked both the Baker Institute and Enron

start it." Powell said the institute represents a very successful
collaboration between the corporate leaders in Houston and the
of Rice University. Powell said we are now moving from a world of
danger to a world in which, with the end of the Cold War and
containment, "we have lost the rules that gave us the means to make
appropriate choices. "New rules are needed. So there will be new
elements of power, new ways of competing and the ideas and structure
that we will need to deal with this new world will emerge from places
of learning, places of study and places of introspection, such as the
Baker Institute. I predict this will be one of the leading
institutions of that kind," he said.

"Will Joe and Valerie Wilson Sue Richard Armitage? No.
They just want Cheney, Rove, and Libby.
By Byron York
The new attorney for Joseph and Valerie Wilson says the Wilsons do
not plan to add former State Department official Richard Armitage to
their lawsuit against top Bush administration officials...In July,
the Wilsons sued Cheney, Rove, and Libby, along with ten other un-
named co-defendants, charging that were part of a conspiracy
to "discredit, punish and seek revenge against the plaintiffs that
included, among other things, disclosing to members of the press
Plaintiff Valerie Plame Wilson's classified CIA employment."
Armitage was not named in the suit....This week, a new book, Hubris,
by the Nation's David Corn and Newsweek's Michael Isikoff, confirmed
widespread rumors that Armitage was the original leaker in the CIA
A few weeks ago, the Wilsons made changes in their legal team,
joining forces with the liberal advocacy group Citizens for Ethics
and Responsibility in Washington (CREW). The Wilsons also hired the
San Francisco-based firm Cotchett, Pitre, Simon & McCarthy.
Constitutional lawyer Erwin Chemerinsky, who helped write the
lawsuit, remains with the case.....Citizens for Responsibility and
Ethics in Washington is best known for its filing of ethics
complaints against members of Congress, the overwhelming majority of
them Republicans. Sloan is a former aide to Democratic lawmakers
John Conyers and Charles Schumer.

Here yet another internet posting tracks the terrorists' best friend
Capitol Hill, Robert Carlyle Byrd : "Wednesday, Feb. 27, 2002 Sen.
About War on Terror Senator Robert Carlyle Byrd , D-W.Va., the famous
Klux Klansman, complained today, "There's no end in sight in our
mission in Afghanistan." The remarks "were among the harshest in
Congress yet about the anti-terrorism campaign," the Associated Press
noted today. Long ago saddled with the nickname Senator Pork for his
notoriously wasteful squandering of taxpayer dollars, Byrd controls
spending legislation as chairman of the Senate Appropriations
Committee. Though he loves bringing boondoggle make-work projects
to West Virginia, he has begun expressing reluctance about footing
the bill for ending terrorism." Byrd's obstructionism to fighting
terrorists like arafat and bin Laden and their master: Saddam
seems to have no bounds, "Thursday, October 10, 2002 By a 66-31 vote,
the Senate rejected an amendment by Sen. Robert Carlyle Byrd D-W.Va.
most outspoken Senate opponent of the war resolution - that would
have ended the authorization for him to use force against Iraq after
two years." Fortunately a number of people on and off the net have
been keeping track of the terrorists' best friend on Capitol Hill, US
Senator Robert Carlyle Byrd of West Virginia, for instance: "WHY AM I
SURPRISED? Finally, Congress has somewhat meekly voiced its support
for Israel. The Senate version of the bill was symbolic and largely
omitted language from the House which placed blame on Arafat. Despite
the watering down in the Senate, two members voted against it: "The
two most senior Democrats, Sens. Robert Carlyle Byrd of West Virginia
Ernest "Fritz" Hollings of South Carolina, still opposed it, however
Byrd is a former Klansman. " http://opinionated.blogspot.com/
"This ex-Klansman wasn't just a passive member of the nation's most
notorious hate group. According to news accounts and biographical
information, Sen. Byrd was a "Kleagle"-an official recruiter who
signed up members for $10 a head. He said he joined because it
"offered excitement" and because the Klan was an "effective force" in
"promoting traditional American values." Nothing like the thrill of
gathering `round a midnight bonfire, , tying nooses, and promoting
white supremacy with a bunch of your hooded friends. The ex-Klansman
allegedly ended his ties with the group in 1943. He may have stopped
paying dues, but he continued to pay homage to the KKK. (someone) in
West Virginia discovered a letter Sen. Byrd had written to the
Imperial Wizard of the KKK three years after he says he abandoned the
group. He wrote: "The Klan is needed today as never before and I am
anxious to see its rebirth here in West Virginia" and "in every state
in the Union." The ex-Klansman later filibustered the landmark 1964
Civil Rights Act-for more than 14 hours. He also opposed the
nominations of the Supreme Court's two black justices, liberal
Thurgood Marshall and conservative Clarence Thomas. Meanwhile, author
Graham Smith recently discovered another letter Sen. Byrd wrote after
he quit the KKK, this time attacking desegregation of the armed
forces. The ex-Klansman vowed never to fight "with a Negro by my

Thursday, August 31, 2006
WITH the disclosure that former Deputy Secretary of State Richard
Armitage was the initial source for Robert Novak's July 2003 column
that outed CIA operative Valerie Wilsonalso known as Valerie
Plame, wife of former ambassador and Iraq-war critic Joseph Wilson --
it is now clear that all the hype about a Bush-inspired vendetta
against the Wilsons is bunk....No one knows how much special
prosecutor Patrick Fitzgerald has spent in taxpayers' money
investigating this leak, but figure the probe came with a hefty
price tag because he has been in business since December 2003. We do
know now, however, that when Fitzgerald set up shop, the secretary
of State and someone at the Department of Justice knew that Armitage
leaked the story....What did America learn? Rove confirmed Wilson's
identity. Big deal. As Mark Corallo, who served as Rove's spokesman
during this controversy, noted, Rove "never made a single phone call
to a single journalist on this matter. He simply answered two phone
questions from two journalists." For confirming, not initiating, the
Armitage leak, Rove was hauled before a grand jury five times.
Rove is not the only White House aide made to jump through hoops.
Some 2,000 White House staffers also were hopping as they had to
produce phone records, diaries and correspondence.
Then-New York Times reporter Judith Miller spent 85 days behind bars
before disclosing who told her about Wilsoneven though she never
wrote about the CIA operative's identity. That's another colossal
waste of taxpayers' dollars, which would have been better spent
jailing a real criminal.
Fitzgerald has charged Scooter Libby, Vice President Dick Cheney's
former top aide, with perjury and obstruction of justice. But the
special prosectuor's failure to charge the original leaker makes one
question whether Fitzgerald was mindful of his office's mandate --
that a special prosecutor's probe, as Attorney General Janet Reno
wrote in 1999, "be conducted ably, expeditiously and thoroughly, and
that investigative and prosecutorial decisions will be supported by
an informed understanding of the criminal law and Department of
Justice policies." Instead, Fitzgerald's actions have been plodding
and heavy-handed, landing a journalist who didn't write on the leak
behind bars, while the leaker remained anonymous and free....As for
the time table, while Deputy U.S. Attorney General James B. Comey
told reporters that Fitzgerald had a reputation for working quickly,
Fitzgerald has spent years investigating a leak that he has failed
to prosecute, although the Libby prosecution is pending.
The irony is that as Joe Wilson charged that the White House was
pursuing him as an act of revenge, he emerges as a partisan bent on
punishing those with whom he disagreed. Wilson, after all, once
bragged that he wanted to see Rove "frog-marched out of the White
House in handcuffs." The Wilsons filed a silly lawsuit suit against
Libby, Cheney and Rove.
Armitage was not an Iraq war hawk, so it should come as no surprise
that Wilson's attorney has given Armitage a pass....Yes, it is about
the abuse of government power. The victims are the innocent staffers
and journalists who had to face the threat of jail over three years
while Armitage was too ashamed to come forward and admit what he had

WAKE UP AND SMELL THE ANTI-SEMITISM !
By Jeff Dunetz,
campaigns are underway-
not only in the Middle East,
but in Europe and America,
I have an uncontrollable urge to run up all 102
floors of the Empire State building, shimmy my
way up the TV antenna and start screaming,
begging, pleading as loud as I can: "Wake up,
world! The war in Israel is not just about land! It's also about
hatred of the Jewish people!"
Most American Jews will probably think I'm paranoid, a person who
finds a pogrom coming out of every closet. But if we look at the
and deeds of Islamic activists-in the Mideast and beyond-we see
virulent ant-Semitic messages being distributed regularly to a broad
A few hours of Internet research came up with hundreds of examples of
Arab leaders and official press attacking Jews. They don't attack
Israel on how it deals with Palestinian issues; this state-sponsored
anti-Semitism drudges up ancient stereotyping and blood libel. And
this rhetoric has expanded into Europe, the U.S., and the UN.
For starters, the Palestinian media has called for the killing of all
Jews. In October 2000, after two Israeli solders were lynched in
Ramallah, Dr. Ahmad Abu Halabiya gave a sermon on official
Have no mercy on the Jews no matter where they are, in any country.
Fight them, wherever you are.
Wherever you meet them, kill them. Wherever you
are, kill those Jews and those Americans who are like
them - and those who stand by them... (translation by
Doesn't sound like purely a land battle to me.
Let's look at Israel's neighbors. During the
Pope's trip to Syria last year, President
They (the Jews) tried to kill the
principles of all religions with the
same mentality in which they
betrayed Jesus Christ in the
same way they tried to betray
and kill the Prophet
Muhammad. (ADL, October
Maybe the moderate Saudis are a little more reasonable? In December
2001, the Saudi government-controlled newspaper, Al-Watan, published
report entitled, "The Jewish organizations are implementing their
strategic and hellish plan to take over the world":
The Jews act by means of the control of the media,
politics and the economy in order to weaken the
non-Jewish groups and bring about their
disintegration." (translation by memri.org)
In the Saudi government daily Al-Riyadh, columnist Dr. Umayma Ahmad
Al-Jalahma of King Faysal University in Al-Dammam, wrote last week
(March 10, 2002) on "The Jewish Holiday of Purim." The following are
excerpts of the article:
Special Ingredient For Jewish Holidays is Human Blood From Non-Jewish
For this holiday, the Jewish people must obtain human blood so that
their clerics can prepare the holiday pastries. In other words, the
practice cannot be carried out as required if human blood is not
The Jews' spilling human blood to prepare pastry for their holidays
a well-established fact, historically and legally, all throughout
history. This was one of the main reasons for the persecution and
exile that were their lot in Europe and Asia at various times.
How the Jews Drain the Blood From Their Young Victims:
I would like to tell you how human blood is spilled so it can be used
for their holiday pastries. The blood is spilled in a special way.
is it done? For this holiday, the victim must be a mature adolescent
who is, of course, a non-Jew-that is, a Christian or a Muslim. His
blood is taken and dried into granules. The cleric blends these
granules into the pastry dough; they can also be saved for the next
holiday. In contrast, for the Passover slaughtering, about which I
intend to write one of these days, the blood of Christian and Muslim
children under the age of 10 must be used, and the cleric can mix the
blood [into the dough] before or after dehydration. The Actions of
Jewish Vampires Cause Them Pleasure:
Let us now examine how the victims' blood is spilled. For this, a
needle-studded barrel is used; this is a kind of barrel, about the
size of the human body, with extremely sharp needles set in it on all
sides. [These needles] pierce the victim's body, from the moment he
placed in the barrel.
These needles do the job, and the victim's blood drips from him very
slowly. Thus, the victim suffers dreadful torment-torment that
the Jewish vampires great delight as they carefully monitor every
detail of the blood-shedding with pleasure and love that are
to comprehend. (translation by memri.org)
Egypt, the first Arab country to make peace with Israel, recently ran
a TV series called "Horseman Without a Horse," a 30-part series based
on the anti-Semitic forgery, "The Protocols of the Elders of Zion."
Sheikh Muhammed Abd Al Hadi La'afi, responsible for Religious
and Instruction in the Office of the Wakf, wrote in the official P.A.
newspaper Al-Hayat Al-Jadida (May 18, 2001):
The battle with the Jews will surely come... the decisive Muslim
victory is coming without a doubt, and the prophet spoke about in
than one Hadith and the Day of resurrection will not come without the
victory of the believers [the Muslims] over the descendents of the
monkeys and pigs [the Jews] and with their annihilation.
These hate-filled teachings proliferate even in America. The
Washington Post reported (March 2002) on Muslim elementary and high
schools in the U.S.:
[One] 11th-grade textbook, for example, says one sign of the Day of
Judgment will be that Muslims will fight and kill Jews, who will hide
behind trees that say:
'Oh Muslim, Oh servant of God, here is a Jew hiding behind me. Come
here and kill him.' Several students of different ages, all of whom
asked not to be identified, said that in Islamic studies, they are
taught that it is better to shun and even to dislike Christians, Jews
and Shi'ite Muslims... [In addition,] maps of the Middle East hang on
classroom walls, but Israel is missing.
Beyond the traditional anti-Semitic slurs, there is a new strategy
that strikes at the heart of our Jewish heritage, seeking to deny our
history. Remember the dismantling of Joseph's Tomb, the attack on
Rachel's Tomb, and the ancient Jericho synagogue that was destroyed
the Palestinians? Their purpose was to turn Jewish history into a
myth. The Mufti of Jerusalem has said of the Temple Mount:
"There is not the smallest indication of the existence of a Jewish
temple on this place in the past." (Boston Globe, April 2001)
The Mufti's comments have been echoed by Arafat's cabinet, and much
the official press of the Arab world. In some sort of kow-tow, even
The New York Times described the Temple Mount as what "Israel claims
to have been the site of the first and second Temples." The Temple is
mentioned in the Jewish Bible, the Christian Bible, the Koran, and
every history book of the past 3,000 years. But it is now just a
And let's not forget how, throughout the Arab
world, the World Trade Center attack was
reported as a Jewish-led conspiracy.
At a meeting in Damascus in October 2001
with a delegation from the British Royal
College of Defense Studies, Syrian Defense
Minister Mustafa Tlass said the Mossad
planned the ramming of two hijacked
airliners into the WTC towers. He also told
the British visitors that the Mossad had given thousands of Jewish
employees at the towers advance warning not to go to work on
11. (Jerusalem Post, October 19, 2001) The slander took hold.
Paknews.com, a sophisticated English-language news site based in
Pakistan, found that 71 percent of its readers believed the report of
a September 11 "Jewish conspiracy."
The Holocaust is another point to examine.
The Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Haj Amin
al-Husseini, lived in Berlin from 1941-45. He
was in charge of supervising Axis
propaganda to Muslims all over the world.
When Jews fleeing Hitler's ovens were able
to obtain emigration visas to Palestine, the
Mufti was instrumental in getting those visa
cancelled. He met several times with Hitler,
and personally recruited 20,000 Muslims in
Bosnia to serve in the Waffen SS. (See:
This tradition continues today. "Mein Kampf," previously banned by
Israel, has been allowed by the PA and was sixth on the Palestinian
best-seller list. A senior commander in Arafat's personal bodyguard
Fawzi Salem al-Mahdi (known as "Abu Hitler"), whose two sons bear the
first names Hitler and Eichmann. The official Arab mouthpieces are
among the ranks of the most stubborn Holocaust deniers. And American
neo-Nazi and white supremacist parties have found in Muslims a new
audience to advance theories discredited in the west for more than 50
BEYOND THE MIDDLE EAST
Anti-Jewish sentiments are spreading far beyond the Middle East.
France has one of the largest Jewish communities in the world, and is
also one of least hospitable to its Jewish residents. CRIF (an
umbrella group of Jewish organizations in France) reported that
between September 2000 and November 2001 there were 330 anti-Semitic
incidents in metro Paris alone, nearly one per day. The study also
reported that the perpetrators are primarily young Arab immigrants.
(ADL, January 2002)
Britain's Chief Rabbi, Rabbi Jonathan Sacks, has said that Jews of
country are suffering from the worst anti-Semitism since the
Holocaust. The contributing factors of this anti-Semitism have been
the rise in Islamic fundamentalists who use the Israeli-Arab conflict
as an excuse to create open displays of anti-Semitism. (Simon
Weisental Center, February 2002)
In December 2001, the largest neo-Nazi march since World War Two took
place in Berlin.
At the world conference on Racism in Durban this past September,
literature with hook-nosed Jewish caricatures were distributed inside
while thousands of South African Muslims marched outside carrying
banners saying that Hitler should have finished the job. (Jerusalem
Center for Public Affairs, December 2001)
Copies of the libelous "Protocols of the Elders of Zion" are selling
fast in Malaysia and Pakistan. "The Bulawayo Chronicle," which
supports the government of Zimbabwean president Robert Mugabe,
recently published a 3,000-word article alleging Jewish
for the ongoing economic problems facing the country.
America is not exempt, either. In the year
2000, 73 percent of all reported hate crimes
on the basis of religion were against Jews,
according to FBI figures.
The spreaders of hate have a strong ally in
the press. Organizations such as the BBC,
The New York Times and the once-proud
CBS News, have subtly manipulated
terminology and provided unbalanced
reporting. When Israel suffers a terrorist
attack and retaliates by targeting the terrorists, it is called the
"cycle of violence"-drawing a moral equivalency between civilians and
terrorists, and dehumanizing civilian victims. Let's not forget how
the press uses the word "terrorist." If a military action is targeted
toward civilians anywhere in world, it is "terrorism," but somehow
when it targets Jewish civilians, it is "militancy," "activism,"
"freedom fighting," or as The New York Times prefers: "What Israel
claims is a terrorist act."
CALL FOR ACTION
Make no mistake about it-this is a war about much more than land. It
is being waged by Islamic zealots who corrupt the name of religion to
spread hate. The anti-Zionist rhetoric is just a front for deep
During an appearance at Harvard University, a student stood up and
asked Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. to address himself to the issue of
Zionism. The question was clearly hostile. King responded, "When
people criticize Zionists, they mean Jews. You are talking
anti-Semitism." (San Francisco Chronicle, January 21, 2002)
We need to wake up before it's too late.
Recognize what is going on and take action.
Write your government; tell them to take
action against anti-Semitism in your county.

media. Write letters about their inaccuracies

to power in Germany, Hitler wrote "Mein Kampf" which outlined many of
his plans, including a discussion of the "Jewish Problem." His
horrible goals were laid out in black and white. Despite the
forewarning, most people had their heads in the sand and were
surprised when Hitler followed through on his plans. Seventy years
ago, we did not take Hitler at his word. Will we take today's
anti-Semites at their word?

Plamegate Revelation: Liberal Silence Deafening
August 29, 2006Vox Populi, Will Malven
The silence from the Left is, well, deafening. Come on folks, you
know of what I am speaking. It's Plamegate of course and the silence
of which I take note is the complete absence of commentary in the
Left-wing blogosphere about the revelation that it was Richard
Armitage, not Karl Rove, not Dick Cheney, not even Lewis "Scooter"
Libby that was Robert Novak's source for the identity of Valerie
The silence in the Liberal blogs is absolutely deafening, Armitage's
revelation is not addressed at dailyKos.com, not even mentioned at
democraticunderground.com, nary a word at the Huffington post,
Wonkette says nothing, Crooksandliars misses the story entirely,
MyDD has zippo, yep even Buzzflash which purports to supply pretty
much all the important news for the moonbats failed to mention
Richard Armitage. Amazing how inconvenient facts seem to be
swallowed up in the static of repetition Katrina, Katrina, Katrina,
Lieberman, Lame-ont, Rumsfeld, Katrina, Bush, Brownie, Katrina,
Floyd, Kat whoops, did I say Floyd? I'm sorry just a slip. You most
assuredly won't find any mention of Hurricane Floyd in those Left-
wing moonbat blogs. It is another "inconvenient fact" and therefore
to be ignored by the Left.
The dedication of Liberal bloggers to the truth is less than
overwhelming; of course you knew that didn't you. Liberals are
liars. If you don't believe me just watch "Lassie" err former
Senator, Presidential Candidate, and Vice-Presidential Candidate
John Edwards whenever he answers a question about the war. He bats
his eyes like a Main-Street hooker. Watch Joe "Plagiarizer" Biden
whenever he answers a question about national security, he appears
to have suddenly gotten a piece of sand in his eyes, blink-blink-
blink-blink. In fact the blink reflex is a relatively good indicator
of a person's veracity. When the individual is telling the truth,
their eyes blink normally like everyone else, but let them leave the
realm of fact for the dodgy terrain of untruth and suddenly their
eyes are all a flutter. I suspect if we were to put all the Liberal
politicians together in the same room, they would be able to power a
windmill and reduce the energy requirements of DC. Once you know
this truth, it can be quite amusing to watch Democrats as they
struggle with the truth. It's not infallible, but it is useful.
As for the silence, are you really surprised? The Left has spent
much of the past few years hounding the Bush Administration about
the events surrounding the Novak article. Karl Rove was demonized,
Vice-President Cheney was loudly accused, the President was held up
to scrutiny for his statement that anyone in his administration
involved in the outing of a CIA operative "would be taken care of."
The moonbats of dailyKos and Democraticunderground have openly
bragged about the imminent demise of either Rove or Cheney on an
almost daily basis. They have blithely ignored any information that
would have easily redirected their ire toward those who were more
likely to have been the "leaker."
Liberal arrogance (and it is an epidemic among them) is based on
their ignorance of the facts. Usually that ignorance is by choice.
They choose to "ignore" the facts with which they are confronted,
believing instead their own mythology. So now they have been caught
with their mouths hanging open with nothing to say. Being that
profoundly wrong will do that to you. All of that hope hanging on
their delusional faith in a myth which was never based in reality.
You can expect to see them equally silent in November when all of
their delusional prognostications of a glorious victory in which
they (the just and right) seize back power from conservatives (the
evil and heartless). Of course some of them will immediately revert
into their delusional state and claim that the Republicans have
stolen the elections they have long assumed they would win. They
seem to be incapable of understanding that mere hatred of
Republicans and President Bush is not a sufficient reason for people
to vote for them. One must have some clue as to how to run the
nation and it is becoming increasingly clear that the Democrats
don't have and will never have a clue.
So far, every "policy proposal" they have come forward with has been
a bland accumulation of generalities. They haven't any idea as to
how to deal with the nation's problems.
So look for more of these omissions as time progresses. Richard
Armitage has been a hero of the Left because he was hostile to the
Bush Administrations plans for Iraq. For him to be revealed as the
notorious "leaker" of Robert Novak fame is a severe blow to the
Hey moonbats: "Armitage is the Leaker!" "Armitage is the
Leaker!" "Armitage is the Leaker!" Na-na-na-na-na-na! What ya think
about them apples Markos?
I tell you I love it. Even Karl Rove couldn't have planned this
could he? Hmmm, you never know.

"One of the most influential Nazi spies in the U.S. was Dr. Walter
Becher, an anti-Communist "refugee leader" from the Hitler regime.
Becher joined the Nazi Party in December, 1931, and became an editor
of Die Zeit, a Nazi propaganda sheet in 1937. He was a Brown-Shirt
a spell and a member of the National Socialist Student Bund. He
editorialized for the purge of all Jews from state-owned radio in
Prague. During the war, Becher worked in the Goebbels Propaganda
Ministry and for the Wehrmacht as a war correspondent. Soon after the
war, he founded a newspaper in Germany that agitated for the
restoration of National Socialism. Becher had his advocates in
Washington, D.C. In 1957, Congressman Usher Burdick inserted one of
Dr. Becher's propaganda pieces in the Congressional Record, and in
August 1959, seven more appeared in the pages of the Record. When he
junketed to the States, conferences were arranged for him by the
Department. His geopolitical opinions were trumpeted by scores of
newspapers and the Mutual Broadcasting Network's 600 affiliates. Dr.
Becher's early contacts in Washington were McCarthy and William
in the Senate, and a handful of congressmen in the House. T.H. Tetens
in The New Germany and the Old Nazis, was awed by the Nazi's
camaraderie with Beltway politicians, and tracked his movements
through the District of Columbia: "During the early fifties, when he
first came to Washington, he began to build for himself a formidable
political machine. His scheme was very simple. If he could obtain the
support of leading politicians in the United States, his prestige and
stature would grow enormously at home.... With the help of the
McCarthy faction in the United States, he could establish a
reputation as the foremost leader of the anti-Communist crusade."

in Munich in the 1950s: Albert Gore (father of former Vice President
