What We Knew In The Early Days Of COVID

by Tyler Durden 07November2022 – 12:30 AM https://www.zerohedge.com/covid-19/what-we-knew-early-days-covid

Via The Brownstone Institute,

The claim is now everywhere:

  • We had to lock down because we just didn’t know about this virus.
  • It was all very confusing and we had to play it safe.
  • We had no other option because we just had no clarity about what we were dealing with.
  • The precautionary principle dictated the unprecedented actions. 

 

The world famous Prague Astrological Clock in Old Town Square.

The world famous Prague Astrological Clock in Old Town Square.

Actually, the precautionary principle goes both directions.

 

It also dictates that we not enact policies that we know for sure would wreck lives and liberties. They did it anyway, without sufficient knowledge that the measures would achieve any positive good.

 

We approach the third year and people have forgotten that all the harms of lockdowns were strongly warned about by many voices in many venues. In addition, the virus was much better understood back then and openly discussed. We knew for certain that the panic and fear were being wildly overblown.

 

Below follows resources assembled by the ‘Robber Baron‘ and many others who write for the Brownstone Institute. These citations from newspapers, magazines, academic journals and interviews, with many respected voices, show that we certainly knew tremendous amounts in the early days.

 

All the warnings and information were readily available to anyone paying attention.

We certainly live in an age of short attention span but many these signs and warnings came weeks or months before the world locked down and they chronicled the damage as it was happening.

 

Why all this came to be completely ignored remains the burning question.

If Lockdown Saves Just ONE Life…

28Octeber2020 Common Sense Soapbox:

How can anybody value the economy above human life? Should we be willing to halt economic progress if it saves just one life? Well, as Ron finds out, the “economy” is just the name we used to describe the actions of millions of human beings, producing and trading goods & services with each other. All of our lives DEPEND upon the economy. When people aren’t allowed to work and produce, they’re made poorer, unhealthier, and unhappier. Also, slowing down production has major consequences, like rising rates of global and domestic food insecurity. In this sense, lockdowns may be causing more deaths than they’re preventing. If that’s the case, we should end them to save lives.

The Experts Are Lying To You

The COVID World post date: March 12th, 2022 Archived: https://web.archive.org/web/20220313013005/https://thecovidworld.com/the-experts-are-lying-to-you/

By Mark McDonald

A recent post I saw:

“After an amazing two years as an infectious disease expert, I am moving on. I am now an expert in no-fly zones and Central European affairs. Excited for this new opportunity.”

Will you follow his expert advice on how to combat Russian aggression toward Ukraine?

You followed his “guidance” on masks and shots. Why not war in Europe? I hope you have all learned your lesson by now: Don’t blindly follow experts. They are lying to you. You must begin to think for yourselves.

 

It’s been quite cold here in Los Angeles recently. I spotted a woman sitting outside on a park bench, wearing a mask. “Why are you wearing that?” I asked her. “It keeps me warm,” she said. From fear to face warmer. Progress? Perhaps you’ll argue that it’s her “choice” to use a face diaper as a face warmer. Fair enough. But what if that choice is an illusion? What if we have all been lied to and conditioned to engage in behaviors that harm ourselves and others, all the while under the impression that we are simply making a choice?

 

If you are not a Muslim woman displaying your proof of purchase, a surgeon operating on a patient in the OR, or a criminal engaged in an illegal act, you have no business covering your face. To believe otherwise renders you a fool. For large groups of people to continue to behave this way reeks of a cultural injection—similar to an mRNA injection—of toxicity, a redefining of values that has led to widespread social damage. Why do so many people make such bad choices? They have allowed themselves to follow experts.

 

The problem is that experts are not always honest. Think of Anthony Fauci, exposed as a liar multiple times by Senator Rand Paul. When truth is sacrificed as recommendations are made, there can be no real choice. This is why informed consent is foundational in the provision of medical care. A doctor telling a patient to agree to a procedure simply because “it’s good for you” is not acting either responsibly or ethically. He must include all meaningful risks as well as potential benefits; otherwise, a patient cannot make a choice to accept the recommendation.

 

Even if honest, experts may also be inexpert at offering advice, despite their mastery of information within their area of expertise. A fire marshal may know exactly how fire spreads throughout a building, and that walls and doors slow its advance. His recommendation to schools to keep all classroom doors closed—even in summer—to protect children from dying in a fire, however, would be foolish. And it should be ignored if received.

 

For two full years, Americans simply followed the advice of experts—to their detriment. As the politics changed, the pandemic magically ended. Now Americans are “choosing” to continue to live in fear, or to live as fools. Unfortunately, many have not learned their lesson, and as the new crisis du jour shifts to Russia and Ukraine, they are making the same mistake of rallying behind a unified political narrative that attacks any dissent, any question, any exploration or nuanced position as treasonous and indecent. This sounds all too familiar.

 

Just as one could accept that a Chinese virus was spreading throughout the US without advocating for an indefinite stoppage of all life, one can now accept that a Russian invasion is spreading throughout Ukraine without advocating for support of a full-scale war between the US and Russia. For two years, safe and effective early treatment for a virus was attacked as irresponsible quackery. All roads led to universal vaccination, which is now proving to have been a complete failure and likely hindering the development of herd immunity and the extinction of viral contagion.

 

It now appears that the only road available to us is an international war. Recent government advice suggested that it’s important to “stay safe” by remaining six feet apart while seeking cover in a bomb shelter. We’re also told that it’s a sign of virtue to accept $7 per gallon gas prices as a sign of support for the Ukrainian people. Oh, and why not swap your vehicle out for an electric car as well. Greater suffering means you are a better person. What will you sacrifice this time, to follow the road recommended by experts?

 

Until only a month ago, tremendous pressure had been growing to change course domestically—skyrocketing inflation, soaring fuel prices, an invasion across our southern border. As the threat of annihilation by a virus ultimately revealed itself to be an emperor without any clothes, the power of the people’s voice grew, and both politicians and the experts who support them began to feel frightened. Corrupt leftwing politicians began to fall, through both regular and recall elections. The fall elections were shaping up to be a complete rout for the Democrat party, largely responsible for the collapse of the country in under a year.

 

Now we have a new threat of annihilation, one we may truly experience if we continue to listen to the experts who advocate for a new war. Perhaps it’s time for Americans to think for themselves and ask the age-old question, “Cui bono?” There is a high probability that those throwing their support behind any movement stand to benefit from it. Will you?

How Money From Gates And FTX Bought Scientific Silence

by Tyler Durden 23November2022 – 01:20 AM https://www.zerohedge.com/covid-19/how-money-gates-and-ftx-bought-scientific-silence

Authored by Jeffrey Tucker via The Epoch Times,

Looking back, it’s utterly bizarre how the world of science could have gone so silent even as the world locked down and lives were shattered by the billions by governments the world over. The silence was deafening. We went from a March 2, 2020, letter signed by 800 public health experts associated with Yale University—which warned against quarantines and closures—to a strange disappearance of nearly all clear voices a few weeks later. And so things stood for the better part of two years.

FTX-logo

 

Governments were allowed to create vast carnage based on a novel experiment with absolutely no precedent in history and no scientific literature that backed it. Even the World Health Organization’s pandemic plan included nothing like lockdowns as a solution to a widespread pathogen. At the time, it was obvious to me and others that the silence was due not to broad agreement with the policies but to something else.

 

That something, sad to say, was money.

 

We are more and more discovering the heightened role that the crypto exchange FTX played in funneling money to major public health outposts and academics at Johns Hopkins and Stanford University, as well as its family connections to the Columbia University department of public health. And before that funding spigot opened up, there was the Gates Foundation which had clearly pivoted from seemingly nonpartisan research to full support for the lockdowns.

 

To be sure, there is no one explanation for the disaster. The whole profession had already been infected by the intellectual virus of mechanistic rationalism and modeling. The idea was that if you slap some math and equations together and let the computer take over, you can gain a picture of disease outcomes under various scenarios. Such models are easily manipulated with small changes in variables.

 

Deborah Birx relied on these entirely in her push to get the Trump administration to greenlight the lockdowns. And there can be no doubt about that history now that Trump’s Twitter account is alive again. The end of the censorship allows us to see how he was pressured to throw out his best instincts and instead adopt a lockdown policy, not just for two weeks but for months after, even to the point of criticizing Governor Brian Kemp of Georgia for opening up that Trump considered to be “too soon.”

 

(As an aside, the restoration of Trump’s account also allows us to see that his last two tweets urged all Jan. 6, 2021, protesters on Capitol to stay peaceful and respect the blue. It’s no wonder the ancien régime at Twitter wanted his account blocked and blasted away.)

 

Having studied this trajectory closely, it seems impossible to overlook the political motives here. No question that many elites in many places had whipped themselves up into a frenzy to the point that they were willing to crush the whole of society and even give up two years of education for kids in order to drive Trump from office. The plot was to get him to make the initial call himself based on telling him lies about virus severity and the effectiveness of lockdowns. No question that he was hornswoggled.

 

However, in addition to these factors, one cannot neglect financial factors. Quite plainly, the grant money at the time and for two years later was clearly on the side of lockdowns and the Democrat Party, plus the elite media and their narrative line that openness equals death and lockdowns/masking/mandates were public-spirited.

 

Vast numbers of scientists who could have and should have spoken out remained silent, or, worse, lent their voices in support of the outrage. Much of the reason has to do with how science is funded at the university level. It’s all about getting the next grant. It’s tragic but there is a strong motivation here to curate one’s opinions in a way that paves the way for future funding sources.

 

This is why it is not necessary that every sellout scientist be in receipt of direct funds from Gates, FTX, or the pharmaceutical industry. All that needs to happen to control a whole sector of opinion is for the word to get out on the streets that a funding source is there with countless millions and is ready to fork over.

 

As a result, even the smartest and most credentialled people can be easily made to fall in line. And no question that FTX quickly picked up the reputation of somehow being concerned about “pandemic planning” and so the whole of the industry lined up with their palms out. After all, FTX promised $100 million in grants!

 

This is why, the Washington Post reports, “The shock waves from FTX’s free fall have rippled across the public health world, where numerous leaders in pandemic-preparedness had received funds from FTX funders or were seeking donations.”

 

The seeking part is key here. But so is the money trail. FTX funded the later stages of the single biggest trials for repurposed therapeutics for COVID. Countless lives hung in the balance on these trials. Many physicians the world over had experienced great outcomes in dire circumstances from generic drugs such as HCQ, Ivermectin, fluvoxamine, and others, especially when used with other vitamins and zinc. Testing them was crucial.

 

The results were backed by a predictable media blitz: such therapeutics don’t work. Meanwhile, the study has been severely criticized not only for poor study construction but also for the conflicts of interests of top researchers who also consulted with pharmaceutical companies.

 

This is all very significant because there is a strong sense that the reason for the neglect of therapeutics—by the National Institutes of Health, Gates Foundation, and also major media, which smeared anyone who suggested there might be a better way—might all trace to the economic motive of shutting down cheap alternatives to vaccines.

 

Independent journalist Alexandros Marinos has mapped out the timeline of the study:

Who funded the TOGETHER trial when?

Who funded the TOGETHER trial when?

 

The Gates Foundation was first in, followed by Rainwater and FastGrants. FastGrants is a program established by the Charles G. Koch Foundation that also ended up giving money to Imperial College modeler Neil Ferguson, who first drove lockdown propaganda in the UK and United States. FTX modeled its own grant-giving program on FastGrants and then picked up the funding burden later in the process. (There is supreme irony here: the lie all over the internet was that the Great Barrington Declaration was funded by Koch, whereas in fact that money stream was going to the opposition!)

 

In addition, the Post notes, FTX “awarded $1.5 million to Stanford University’s Center for Innovation in Global Health in July for seed grants intended ‘to catalyze research and innovations that prepare for and help prevent the next pandemic.’”

 

Also: “The Future Fund’s commitments included $10 million to HelixNano, a biotech start-up seeking to develop a next-generation coronavirus vaccine; $250,000 to a University of Ottawa scientist researching how to eradicate viruses from plastic surfaces; and $175,000 to support a recent law school graduate’s job at the Johns Hopkins Center for Health Security.”

 

We don’t know how much money Gates/FTX gave to JHU’s Center for Health Security (which had sponsored Event 201) but it was enough to cause the Center’s head Tom Inglesby to completely reverse his earlier position against lockdowns to become a leading champion of them.

 

“Overall, the [FTX] Future Fund was a force for good,” Inglesby told the Post. “The work they were doing was really trying to get people to think long-term … to build pandemic preparedness, to diminish the risks of biological threats.”

 

Following the money trail from FTX to the public health establishment will undoubtedly reveal more in the way of information, especially considering that Sam Bankman-Fried’s brother Gabe ran a lobbying organization entirely devoted to “pandemic planning.”

 

No question that this whole machine became an industrial behemoth over two years. When I first started Brownstone Institute, my phone and email began to blow up with offers of money and funding, but always with a proviso. I had to connect our scientists with their network of scientists in an already established system.

 

There was no question in my mind what was going on: I was being told to play ball in exchange for large checks to make this fledgling nonprofit work. In some way, this astonished me: I was being offered a path to riches provided I would gut the whole mission! And this was happening even before we had published any of our research!

 

So, yes, I saw how this system works firsthand. Of course I completely rejected the idea simply because going along would defeat the whole point of founding an institute in the first place. And yet the presumption on the part of the contacts was that surely this was just another racket in a space full of them and I would be happy to give up all principles for generous funding. I never considered it even for one instant.

 

There is a grotesque tragedy to all of this. Great people gave up all their principles and integrity in exchange for grants and grease from big shots who used their money and power to wreck the world over two years, and they were able to do it with very little professional opposition. And yet here we are today. Who are the real stars in the world of science today? Not those on the Gates/FTX gravy train. It is the men and women who stuck their necks out to do the right thing.

LIES
1. Calling it a vax is a lie.
2. Calling it a pandemic is a lie.
3. Calling it a protection is a lie (the vax).
4. Saying the vaccinated are protected is a lie.
5. Saying the unvaccinated are unprotected is a lie.
6. Portraying “free-choice on medicine” – as “antivaxers” is a lie.

TRUTHS
1. Demanding injections of synthetic mRNA is Domestic Terrorism.
2. Using threats of harm – on those who do-not obey is Domestic Terrorism.
3. Injections of synthetic mRNA harms ones natural Immunity System.
4. The harm being caused by the injections is being suppressed (fraud).
5. Government officials can lie to the people while legally shielded from personal liability.
6. The manufacturers of mRNA have been shielded from liability from the harm it causes.
7. Government is running a “protection racket”. [a legally recognized crime]
8. Government officials are harming the people under the guises of “protecting them”.
9. A harmful gene therapy (synthetic mRNA) has been fraudulently re-named a “vaccine” to shield Big Pharma of any liability from the harm it causes. This behavior is a crime.
10. The failure of the legal system (its prosecutors) to charge these officials with Fraud and Domestic Terrorism reveals that the prosecutors are complicit in executing these crimes.

The people are now demanding that these Criminals be charged with these Crimes.

Execute your most important function — or resign from your posts. Humanity is waking up and watching.

Additionally, those who support the existing system (the police, the military, the doctors, the teachers, the MSM) are being requested to step aside. Do not become complicit in executing these crimes. The people who are exposing these crimes are not your enemy. Do not denigrate them or attack them. Instead, take your hats off to them.

7. Calling the vax “safe and effective.”

You can’t make that statement until AFTER testing of 8-12 years!

The state of Uttar Pradesh in India, which has the equivalent of two-thirds of the United States population, has been declared COVID-free, the state government announced last week. There are no more active cases of coronavirus in the 33 districts of Uttar Pradesh, which has a population of 241 million people.

I would add under “Lies” Them: PCR testing kits work Creator: It was made to test for cancer, side benefits it pics up all viral infections but can’t differentiate between them. Ie, You could have herpes and yet you would test positive to COVID which may I add has never been isolated. Food for thought

No, There Will Not Be Any “Pandemic Amnesty”

BY TYLER DURDEN 03November2022 – https://www.zerohedge.com/political/no-there-will-not-be-any-pandemic-amnesty

Authored by Mark Jeftovic via BombThrower.com,

Nothing is Forgotten, Nothing Will Be Forgiven.

On the very first day of this year I wrote that the pandemic was over and that only the most brainwashed true believers would cling to the absurd narratives that enabled it. Since then, all of it has been exposed to be falsehoods, cluelessness and lies:

  • Vaccines were never tested or proven to stop transmission.
  • The fatality rate was around 0.005%
  • Ivermectin worked
  • Masks don’t
  • Lockdowns did more damage than good

…and the final straws for the credibility of all involved:

  • This thing came out of a lab, and
  • There is significant credible evidence of vaccine injuries and death

Innumerable careers, reputations and lives have been destroyed in order to enforce a completely debunked narrative as truth. The mainstream media, Big Tech, governments at all levels, neo-liberal glee clubs like the WEF, all coordinated to gaslight the entire population of the world that we were facing existential annihilation, and would have to henceforth trade in our civil rights to these authorities to escape it.

 

The economic damage is only now beginning to be felt in runaway inflation with central banks powerless to contain it, at risk of destroying what’s left of the economy.

 

We don’t need to enumerate the litany of injustice, ridicule and persecution  anybody who tried to counter these absurd narratives had to endure. Lost friends, family, jobs, position, businesses, cancelations, deplatformings – all of it.

 

So it is unsurprising, now that the edifice is crumbling, that those who piled on to the persecutions, those who feathered their nest being “on the right side of history”, seeing that it’s all turning to dust in realtime, are starting – one and all – to back away from their role.

 

Now the name of the game is to distance oneself from the most intense and virulent outbreaks of mass formation psychosis in recorded history:

“Sooner or Later Everyone Sits Down to a Banquet of Consequences”

If the globally botched pandemic response accomplished one thing, it was to open many people’s eyes to how obsolete and ill equipped our current institutions are for handling a global crisis in this new, decentralized, multi-polar world.

 

While these insular elites believed they had Divine Right to “re-imagine” every aspect of our lives for some grandiose Great Reset, it’s these sclerotic, self-serving institutions they inhabit who are going to get their asses re-imagined. With a vengeance.

 

Here’s what you can do to reclaim your life, and take your power back from those who abused it and used their positions against you:

  1. Vote out any politician who imposed lockdowns or vaccine mandates – regardless of party affiliation. At least the ones who doubled down on them after it became clear how destructive and ineffective they were.
  2. Cancel all paid subscriptions to the mainstream media – you’re better off supporting the many independent outlets and those doing real journalism and providing high-signal content.
  3. Advocate for defunding state-run media apparatuses: NPR in the US, CBC in Canada, BBC in the UK, et al
  4. De-Google-fy your life: Start looking at alternatives to Big Tech. There are other search engines like Duck, Facebook is quickly becoming irrelevant, Twitter may be fun for awhile longer given the meltdowns over the Musk takeover.
  5. Don’t hire or do business with Covid fanatics. If you’re hiring or scouting vendors, check their socials: were they demonizing lockdown skeptics? Hashtagging “#Freedumb”? (Better start scrubbing those timelines, mofos)
  6. Buy Bitcoin. Yes, I’m shilling BTC because Bitcoin is the global opt-out – stacking sats is calling b/s on everything.

There will be no pandemic amnesty. More likely, by the time this is all over, there will be pandemic tribunals.

No Amnesty for Lockdowners

Jeffrey A. Tucker 01November2022 Updated: 02November2022  https://www.theepochtimes.com/no-amnesty-for-lockdowners_4834331.html
Commentary

Now that we can talk to our friends and neighbors about it, the reality is sinking in. What our public health experts and politicians did to this country was egregious. Inspired by the totalitarian lockdowns in Wuhan, China, and urged to replicate that policy by the World Health Organization in a report that Dr. Anthony Fauci and the National Institutes of Health approved, all constitutional rights were thrown out by the government.

 

The churches were shut. The schools were closed, in some places for as long as two years, thus sacrificing the education of a whole generation. We faced restrictions on house parties. We couldn’t visit the elderly in homes, not even their sons and daughters who were paying the rent. There were even restrictions on travel between states: Quarantine rules made it impractical.

 

Health authorities specifically demanded the need to close all venues where people congregate. Nothing like this had ever happened before. Once people were allowed to crawl out from their domestic holes, they were forced to mask up (even though we had zero evidence that this would achieve anything!) and eventually get vaccine shots that everyone said would end the pandemic but obviously didn’t.

 

It’s been nearly three years of imposed hell. We now live with the after-effects, including terrible inflation, learning loss, drug addiction, rising crime, cultural nihilism, and wholly justified public fury, which are driving the Democrats to doom on Nov. 8 because it was the Democrats who leaned in and perpetuated all these policies long after they obviously failed.

 

So sure, people are upset. The right answer would be for our health authorities and politicians to apologize and beg for forgiveness. But nothing like that has happened. They just keep on pretending that all of this was fine. There has been no repeal of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s claimed power to quarantine you next time, and the Biden administration’s own pandemic planning scheme is to prohibit states from opting out the next time around.

 

So let’s discuss Emily Oster’s piece in The Atlantic in which she claims that everyone needs to immediately comply with some kind of amnesty that she has declared. We’re supposed to forget it all and move on. And why is this? Because, she says, there was so much uncertainty. They just didn’t know about the virus. It was the fog of war, after all, and everyone did their best.

 

“We didn’t know,” she wrote, and then kept invoking the supposed “uncertainty” of the times, a word she deployed five times. Why, if she (or they) were so uncertain, did they so quickly decide to wreck all liberty in the United States? The so-called precautionary principle would suggest that government should undertake no such policy because of the obvious harms it would impose. They did it anyway.

 

Here’s the problem. This is complete rot. We knew from February 2020 of the risk stratification of the disease’s serious outcomes. It was in all the papers. We had the data. We knew from the Diamond Princess experience in February 2020 that there were no deaths of those younger than the age of 70 on the ship. That comported with every bit of information we had at the time. Based on what we knew at the time, there was absolutely no case for locking down at all and every reason to not do this.

 

For that matter, Oster could have merely read the news. MSNBC on Jan. 30, 2020, reported that Dr. Ezekiel Emanuel, formerly Barack Obama’s health adviser, said: “Everyone in America should take a very big breath, slow down, and stop panicking and being hysterical. We are having a little too much histrionics on this.”

 

On March 4, 2020, Slate reported: “There are many compelling reasons to conclude that SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, is not nearly as deadly as is currently feared. But COVID-19 panic has set in nonetheless. … Allow me to be the bearer of good news. These frightening numbers are unlikely to hold. The true case fatality rate, known as CFR, of this virus is likely to be far lower than current reports suggest.”

 

On the same day, Psychology Today reported: “Yes, this virus is different and worse than other coronaviruses, but it still looks very familiar. We know more about it than we don’t know. … It’s scary to think that an invisible enemy is out there to make you sick. But your doctor is not panicking, and you don’t need to, either.”

 

We can even turn to Fauci himself, who wrote as follows on Feb. 28, 2020, in the New England Journal of Medicine: “The overall clinical consequences of Covid-19 may ultimately be more akin to those of a severe seasonal influenza (which has a case fatality rate of approximately 0.1 percent) or a pandemic influenza (similar to those in 1957 and 1968) rather than a disease similar to SARS or MERS, which have had case fatality rates of 9 to 10 percent and 36 percent, respectively.”

 

On March 17, 2020, legendary epidemiologist John Ioannidis broke it all down: “The current coronavirus disease, Covid-19, has been called a once-in-a-century pandemic. But it may also be a once-in-a-century evidence fiasco. … One of the bottom lines is that we don’t know how long social distancing measures and lockdowns can be maintained without major consequences to the economy, society, and mental health. Unpredictable evolutions may ensue, including financial crisis, unrest, civil strife, war, and a meltdown of the social fabric. At a minimum, we need unbiased prevalence and incidence data for the evolving infectious load to guide decision-making.”

 

Wow, talk about prophetic! All of that happened. He knew this not because he was clairvoyant, but because he has a working brain. You can’t just shut down society without egregious consequences that affect health, economics, social relations, and so much more. In other words, authorities acted with extreme measures that were in no way justified by the data and did so with measures they knew for sure would massively damage the social fabric.

 

For that matter, we’ve known about the damage of lockdowns since they were first pushed in 2005–06. Famed epidemiologist Donald Henderson warned that such measures would turn a manageable pandemic into a catastrophe!

 

So here we are, living amid catastrophe. There are no apologies. There’s only coverup. Now, you might ask the following: Why, if the mainstream media from late-January through mid-February 2020 were counseling calm and urging against lockdown frenzy, and even Fauci was saying that we didn’t need a vaccine to get out of this pandemic, was there a sudden shift? What new evidence came in that caused Fauci, along with his minions and inner circle, to surround Trump in early March 2020 and demand that he greenlight the lockdowns?

 

Why did this happen? I have my own theories, but they’re only that. My suspicions are that 1) Fauci and his gang believed that they were culpable for the pandemic due to the National Institutes of Health’s funding of the Wuhan lab and so pushed the lockdowns in the hope of stopping the spread or just causing a chaotic diversion of attention, and 2) getting Trump to wreck the economy would be the surest path to unseating him in the November 2020 election. On the second point, it so happened that the manufactured disease panic allowed changes in absentee voting rules that ultimately led to Trump’s defeat.

 

Now, you could call this a conspiracy theory. I sincerely hope it isn’t true because it would be a scandal for the ages. And perhaps I’m wrong here, and there’s some other reason for the egregious actions that wrecked millions of businesses and lives. I would like to know what it is. But as for Oster’s excuse that we just didn’t know—that we believed that the virus was worse than it was, that masks would stop the spread, and so on—that claim is utterly baseless. So, too, does her demand for “amnesty” for the lockdowners fall flat.

 

We knew. We knew for sure, based on existing data what the nature of the threat was, and we knew for sure, based on historical experience and common sense, the deep damage that would be caused by the lockdowns. The plea of ignorance here simply doesn’t hold up to any evidentiary standard.

Moms for Liberty says NO AMNESTY for covid tyrants who committed “crimes against children”

04November2022 by: https://www.naturalnews.com/2022-11-04-moms-for-liberty-no-amnesty-covid-tyrants.html

Children School Pandemic-Mask-Hand Sanitizer

(Natural News) In response to American Federation of Teachers (AFT) president Randi Weingarten’s endorsement of The Atlantic for demanding “amnesty” for covid criminals, Moms for Liberty co-founders Tina Descovich and Tiffany Justice are saying no way.

 

In a statement to the independent media, Descovich and Justice explained that Weingarten endorsed the Atlantic piece because she knows that she herself is one of the criminals who deserves to be punished for her crimes against children.

 

“No amnesty for the people that committed crimes against children,” Justice is quoted as saying to Breitbart News editor-in-chief Alex Marlow on SiriusXM Patriot’s Breitbart News Daily. (Related: Remember when Weingarten decided to remove her face muzzle during a speech in violation of local mandates because supposedly nobody could hear her?)

 

“Of course Randi Weingarten [president of American Federation of Teachers] wants to forgive and forget everything that happened during COVID, because she was a key player,” Descovich added to the conversation.

 

“She kept schools closed. What unions did to children for over a year, in some places, and continuing in some places, between forced masking, quarantining for weeks and months on end, to these children – it is not easily going to be forgotten.”

Weingarten’s abuse of children “destroyed their lives,” Moms for Liberty says

For two years, America’s school children were forced to wear covid veils (face masks), stay away from their peers, and live under the heavy boot of medical tyranny – all because of tyrants like Weingarten who thought they would get away with it.

 

“It destroyed children’s lives,” Descovich says.

 

“The trajectory for children that lost two years of education, when you look at the NAEP [National Assessment of Educational Progress] scores, you know, chances are a lot of these kids are not going to be able to graduate and their future is dismal because of women like her. So of course she wants to put it behind us and forget everything that has happened, but parents are not going to be able to do that very easily.”

 

What Descovich is referring to, here, is something called the Nation’s Report Card, which shows that scamdemic-related school closures led to children’s reading and math scores plummeting to the lowest levels in American history.

 

“The truth of the matter is – you know, Tina said they won’t be able to graduate,” Justice interjected. “The truth is they probably will, because the metrics are being changed, and they’re making it easier and easier to graduate.”

 

“We have, you know, declining student engagement, declining attendance, declining achievement scores, and yet graduation rates have never been higher. And so that just shows you this is a system that’s very intent on protecting itself. The union is very invested in protecting the system, and they want you to focus on what I like to call the alphabet soup: The CRT / SEL / DEI, ‘If only children felt safe and valued, if only this, if only that, then they could learn.’”

 

In other words, children in America are no longer learning reading, writing, and arithmetic, and are instead getting a steady diet of LGBT indoctrination, “diversity, equity, and inclusion” reprogramming, and various other anti-white, anti-American propaganda.

 

Together with the National Education Association (NEA), the AFT has reportedly pulled in some half a billion dollars in dues, nearly all of which ends up going towards far-left political causes.

 

“They are promoting radical progressive ideology in this country – they are so far away from their core issue of public education,” Descovich added about these two groups.

If You Want Forgiveness, Emily, Here’s Your Program

By 03November2022 https://www.lewrockwell.com/2022/11/karen-kwiatkowski/if-you-want-forgiveness-emily-heres-your-program/

Being lectured to, condemned, ridiculed and hated by elitist bullies is bad enough on a single day or for one issue.

 

This behavior went on for over two and a half years, for nearly a thousand days, in a thousand ways.  The economic, social, interpersonal, and educational costs associated with the idiotic mandates and unscientific policies will last a lifetime for many, and certainly shortened the lifetimes of many more.

 

The suggestion printed by the WEF-loving, pro-war lefties at The Atlantic is that they and their global team of unscientific lemming-like nanny-state bullies – just possibly – were a bit misinformed (not their fault) in 2020/21 regarding masking, untested genetic injections, and actual death rates, etc (not their fault).  This bully squad accepted without question the lies their government told them (not their fault).  They not only eagerly, but radically and angrily defended and promoted those lies (partly their fault).

 

They hope we understand that it wasn’t entirely their fault, and that they are still smart and educated.  They really just wanted to live and survive a flu-like disease with a death rate comparable to any other bad flu – and their nagging and incoherent jammering and name-calling was just so we also wouldn’t die – unless we refused the experimental free required shot and continued to live our lives and try and keep our businesses open, then if we died it was kind of funny to them.

 

Their excuse was fear, but in reality it was not fear at all, and nor was it hate although it looked like it. It was contempt from Day One.  Leftover contempt from the Trump era, pumped up and recirculated via a government over-response to a disease that now we understand to have been created via gain of function in a government lab by American scientists, including several who had close personal and professional relationships with Fauci. It was individual contempt, political contempt, and institutional contempt for the masses as demonstrated by the Gates Foundation and its compadres, the Democratic Party, and numerous government aligned institutions and industries.

 

Emily Oster wants us to forgive each other, but it isn’t hate they dished out to us.  If it had been, that hate might be forgiven.  If they hated us because they didn’t know any better – and now they don’t hate us anymore because they know better – well, that can be forgiven.

 

However, contempt is not something that can be “forgiven” by the formerly contemptible. Their contempt for us has nothing to do with us, and it isn’t our problem.  Their contempt for us should be eliminated – not by our “forgiveness” which is irrelevant – but by their own internal change, their own decisions, individually, that we are at least their equals, and quite possibly, in the case of the COVID policy fiasco, examples they could and should have followed, rather than condemned.

 

There are some steps that, if taken, would make me believe that they are serious. Oster has tossed out a veiled and somewhat worried request for a kind of “forgiveness” and tellingly she also used the word “amnesty.” She knows what we all know:  crimes were committed, and citizen trust in governing institutions and their university/media/industry cohorts has been broken and will not be easily restored.

 

Clearly, most people harmed by the myriad of bad policies and bad attitudes by the virulent anti-critical thinking crowd are no where near ready to forgive.  There could be a time for that after court cases are adjudicated, government bureaucrats fired, politicians kicked out of office, and the books and the science comes out from behind the shadows.  When the ghoulish merger of government and big Pharma and the medical institutions is destroyed, and we gain back the freedom we should have always had with regards to our health care decisions and actions, then there could be time for forgiveness.

 

I’d like to see a 12 step movement embraced and acted upon by people like Emily.  Addicts, like the The bullying anti-science left wing are addicts – they gave over personal responsibility to think and act soberly and fairly, to the thing they are addicted to – government centralized power and their own comfortable sense of superiority over people who disagree with them politically. To this end, I recommend that Emily Oster and all of her peers and allies:

  1. Admit they were powerless over their knee-jerk acceptance of government messaging, that their lives had become unmanageable, and yet they remained arrogant.
  2. Come to believe a Power greater than themselves could restore them to sanity – and that power is not the federal government or its associated bureaucracies and lackey institutions.
  3. Made a decision to turn their will and their lives over to the care of God as they understand God.
  4. Made a searching and fearless moral inventory of themselves, and their actions, beliefs and behaviors over the past 3 years.
  5. Admitted to God, to themselves and to another human being the exact nature of their wrongs.
  6. Were entirely ready to have God remove all these defects of character.
  7. Humbly asked God to remove their shortcomings.
  8. Made a list of all persons they have harmed and became willing to make amends to them all.
  9. Made direct amends to such people wherever possible, except when to do so would injure them or others.
  10. Continued to take personal inventory and when they were wrong, promptly admitted it.
  11. Sought through prayer and meditation to improve their conscious contact with God as they understood God, praying only for the knowledge of God’s will for them and the power to carry that out.
  12. Having had a spiritual awakening as the result of these steps, they tried to carry this message to other addicts, and to practice these principles in all their affairs.

 

I’d be happy if they simply looked into half of these 12 –  choose any six steps and go for it.  But I imagine that none of these steps is what Emily and her ilk had in mind.

 

Maybe when their icons are sitting in jail, having lied publicly one too many times, and having participated in mass murder, they will recognize their addiction, and seek to make a personal change.  With Covid, this group of almost a hundred million Americans demonstrated a thousand days of collapses in critical thinking, a thousand days of lockstep unwillingness to question authority, and a thousand days of animalistic rage and aggression toward those who displayed a healthy distrust of large, nontransparent and unaccountable organizations and institutions.

 

So far, none of this is being addressed.  No doubt we will suffer these kinds of freedom-destroying government-driven movements again, be the crisis a man-made disaster, a false flag, or an act of God.  Next time, however, the other hundred million of contemptibles among us might not take it lying down.

Medical Experiments. Kidnappings and More

Israeli Labor Medical Experiments on Sephardi Children

The Ringworm Children: Medical High Dose X-ray Experimentation on Sephardi Children by the Israeli Labor government

Posted 9September2011 vidsupquick “The Ringworm Children testing of large radiation doses on humans.”: A Jewish Genocide
Directed by David Belhassen and Asher Hemias. The documentary won the award for “Best Documentary” at the Haifa International Film Festival and was featured as a documentary at the Israel Film Festival in Los Angeles in 2007.

 

In the early 1950’s, approximately 100,000 immigrant children, primarily from North Africa, received X-ray radiation treatment for ringworm upon their arrival in Israel. At the time, the medical establishment thought ringworm a grave danger to public health. It was later discovered that these treatments caused high rates of infertility, cancer and death. This tragic affair was hidden from the public eye for decades… until now. Through exhaustive research and testimonies of survivors, this emotional documentary illustrates how stereotyping immigrants can have horrific consequences.

Israel allowed one senior health official, Dr. Chaim Sheba, to conduct a massive program of unnecessary medical treatments which actually killed many of the victims. 100,000 Jewish (and Palestinian) Arab children were irradiated with high doses of X-rays. 6,000 of the victims died within the first year or so after treatment. To this day, many of the remaining victims suffer cancers, epilepsy, infertility and other brain disorders.

Ringworm and Radiation

By Barry Chamish 19August2004 Web Archive: http://web.archive.org/web/20080603161817/http://web.israelinsider.com/views/3998.htm

On August 14, at 9 PM, Israel’s Channel Ten television screened a documentary film which exposes the ugliest secret of Israel’s Labor party founders: the deliberate mass radiation poisoning of nearly all Sephardi youths of a generation.

 

“The Ringworm Children” (translated in Hebrew as “100,000 Rays”), directed by David Belhassen and Asher Hemias, recently won the prize for “best documentary” at the Haifa International film festival, and in the past year has made the rounds of Jewish and Israeli film festivals around the world. But it had yet to come to Israeli television screens. The subject is the mass irradiation of hundreds of thousands of young Israeli immigrants from Middle Eastern countries — Sephardim, as they are called today. The story goes like this:

 

In 1951, the director general of the Israeli Health Ministry, Dr. Chaim Sheba, flew to America and returned with seven x-ray machines, supplied to him by the American army.

 

They were to be used in a mass atomic experiment with an entire generation of Sephardi youths to be used as guinea pigs. Every Sephardi child was to be given 35,000 times the maximum dose of x-rays through his head. For doing so, the American government paid the Israeli government 300 million Israeli liras a year. The entire Health budget was 60 million liras. The money paid by the Americans is equivalent to billions of dollars today.

 

To fool the parents of the victims, the children were taken away on “school trips” and their parents were later told the x-rays were a treatment for the scourge of scalpal ringworm. 6,000 of the children died shortly after their doses were given, while many of the rest developed cancers that killed thousands over time and are still killing them now. While living, the victims suffered from disorders such as epilepsy, amnesia, Alzheimer’s disease, chronic headaches and psychosis.

 

That is the subject of the documentary in cold terms. It is another matter to see the victims on the screen.

 

To watch the Moroccan lady describe what getting 35,000 times the dose of allowable x-rays in her head feels like. “I screamed make the headache go away. Make the headache go away. Make the headache go away. But it never went away.”

 

To watch the bearded man walk hunched down the street. “I’m in my fifties and everyone thinks I’m in my seventies. I have to stoop when I walk so I won’t fall over. They took my youth away with those x-rays.”

 

To watch the old lady who administered the doses to thousands of children: “They brought them in lines. First their heads were shaved and smeared in burning gel. Then a ball was put between their legs and the children were ordered not to drop it, so they wouldn’t move. The children weren’t protected over the rest of their bodies. There were no lead vests for them. I was told I was doing good by helping to remove ringworm. If I knew what dangers the children were facing, I would never have cooperated. Never!”

 

Because the whole body was exposed to the rays, the genetic makeup of the children was often altered, affecting the next generation. We watch the woman with the distorted face explain, “All three of my children have the same cancers my family suffered. Are you going to tell me that’s a coincidence?”

 

The majority of the victims were Moroccan because they were the most numerous of the Sephardi immigrants. The generation that was poisoned became the country’s perpetual poor and criminal class. It didn’t make sense. The Moroccans who fled to France became prosperous and highly educated. The common explanation was that France got the rich, thus smart ones. The real explanation is that every French Moroccan child didn’t have his brain cells fried with gamma rays.

 

The film made it perfectly plain that this operation was no accident. The dangers of x-rays had been known for over forty years. We read the official guidelines for x-ray treatment in 1952. The maximum dose to be given a child in Israel was .5 rad. There was no mistake made. The children were deliberately poisoned.

 

David Deri makes the point that only Sephardi children received the x-rays: “I was in class and the men came to take us on a tour. They asked our names. The Ashkenazi children were told to return to their seats. The dark children were put on the bus.”

 

The film presents a historian who first gives a potted history of the eugenics movement. In a later sound bite, he declares that the ringworm operation was a eugenics program aimed at weeding out the perceived weak strains of society. The Moroccan lady is back on the screen. “It was a Holocaust, a Sephardi Holocaust. And what I want to know is why no one stood up to stop it.”

 

David Deri, on film and then as a panel member, relates the frustration he encountered when trying to find his childhood medical records. “All I wanted to know was what they did to me. I wanted to know who authorized it. I wanted to trace the chain of command. But the Health Ministry told me my records were missing.” Boaz Lev, the Health Ministry’s spokesman chimes in: “Almost all the records were burned in a fire.”

 

We are told that a US law in the late ’40s put a stop to the human radiation experiments conducted on prisoners, the mentally feeble and the like. The American atomic program needed a new source of human lab rats and the Israeli government supplied it. Here was the government cabinet at the time of the ringworm atrocities:

 

Prime Minister – David Ben Gurion; Finance Minister – Eliezer Kaplan; Settlement Minister – Levi Eshkol; Foreign Minister – Moshe Sharrett; Health Minister – Yosef Burg;
Labor Minister – Golda Meir; Police Minister – Amos Ben Gurion.

 

The highest ranking non-cabinet post belonged to the Director General of the Defence Ministry, Shimon Peres.

 

That a program involving the equivalent of billions of dollars of American government funds should be unknown to the Prime Minister of cash-strapped Israel is ridiculous. Ben Gurion had to have been in on the horrors and undoubtedly chose his son to be Police Minister in case anyone interfered with them.

 

Finance Minister Eliezer Kaplan was rewarded for eternity with a hospital named after him near Rehovot. But he’s not alone in this honor. Chaim Sheba, who ran Ringworm Incorporated, had a whole medical complex named after him. Needless to say, if there is an ounce of decency in the local medical profession, those hospital names will have to change.

 

After the film ended, there was a panel discussion which included a Moroccan singer, David Edri, head of the Compensation Committee for Ringworm X-Ray Victims, and Boaz Lev, a spokesman for the Ministry Of Health.

 

TV host Dan Margalit tried to put a better face on what he’d witnessed. He explained meekly that “the state was poor. It was a matter of day to day survival.” Then he stopped. He knew there was no excusing the atrocities which the Sephardi children endured.

 

But it was the Moroccan singer who summed up the experience best. “It’s going to hurt, but the truth has to be told. If not, the wounds will never heal.”

 

There is one person alive who knows the truth: Shimon Peres. The only way to get to the truth and start the healing is to investigate him for his role in the mass poisoning of over 100,000 Sephardi children and youth.

 

But here is why that won’t happen. The film was aired at the same time as the highest-rated TV show of the year, the finale of Israel’s talent-hunt show: “A Star Is Born.” The next day, the newly-born star’s photo took up half the front pages. There was not a word about “The Ringworm Children” in any paper, nor on the Internet. Until now.

The Kidnapping of Yemenite, Mizrahi and Balkan Children by the Israeli Labor government

edut-amram-org-the-kidnappings-logo The kidnapping of Yemenite, Mizrahi and Balkan Children

The Yemenite, Mizrahi and Balkan Children Affair

https://www.edut-amram.org/en/the-kidnappings/

In the early years of the State of Israel, and especially in the fifties, thousands of babies and toddlers disappeared from their families – families of immigrants who came to Israel and were housed in transit and absorption camps. About two-thirds of the children were from families of Yemenite immigrants. According to low estimates, in those years every eighth child of a Yemenite family disappeared. The remaining third of the children were from other Mizrachi families – Tunisian, Moroccan, Libyan, Iraqi and others – and a small number were children of families who immigrated from the Balkans. Thousands of testimonies by parents indicate a similar method: parents were asked to give their children to nurseries or hospitals under the pretext that there “they will be given more appropriate care.” Sometimes children were violently taken by social workers or nurses, placed in ambulances and forcibly transferred to these institutions. The parents were not allowed to stay with their children and were told to go home and to return only to breastfeed their babies. A few days later the parents were told that their child had died. The parents never saw their child’s body and were not allowed to take their child to be buried. In many cases, parents did not receive a death certificate or received it much later, retroactively. A few dozen children were returned to their parents after the latter’s fierce protests, but the fate of most of the children is unknown. Many appeals to law enforcement agencies, government offices and various officials were unsuccessful. The children were not located and proof of their deaths was not found. On the contrary: some of them were found years later in the bosom of other families.

 

The affair came to light again a few years later, when most of the families received draft orders from the IDF for the children pronounced as “dead.” Over the years, and only after strong public criticism, official inquiries were conducted by the state. The first was an inter-ministerial joint committee of the Departments of Justice and Police, which operated between 1967 and 1968 (the Bahlul- Minkowski Committee). The Shalgi Committee, which was defined as a committee of inquiry and operated between 1984 and 1988, was the second committee. Only in the late nineties, after the protest of the late Rabbi Uzi Meshulam was the official investigative committee established, and it published its findings in 2001. Later a gag order was placed on all the committee’s materials, until 2066. All the committees concluded that most of the babies had died, and that the fate of about a dozen babies is unknown. The fact that the important materials of the investigation remained inaccessible and confidential for another seventy years creates serious resentment.

 

The manner in which the investigation committee dismissed the children’s disappearance is deeply disturbing. The Committee found it necessary to note that in those years official records were improperly taken and were in evident disarray, in order to dismiss the records in which it was documented that the babies had not died. At the same time, it relied upon lists of infants’ deaths that were composed retroactively, and accepted such records as a credible and reliable source of information. The committee did not see fit to investigate why two important archives related to the affair were destroyed around the time this committee operated, and it was satisfied with the explanation that the archives were destroyed “by mistake.” Moreover, the Committee focused on examining the claim of “establishment kidnappings,” but did not consider that it is highly possible that the disappearance of the children was a phenomenon which took place in parallel channels, under the auspices of an indifferent establishment which looked the other way, rather than being a result of a direct instruction or an expressed intention of the establishment (for further reading see Prof. Boaz Sangero’s article – Hebrew).

 

The adoptees and the missing adoption flies

Over the years we learn of more and more stories of children who went missing, and at the same time – of adults who have discovered they are adopted, and are trying to locate their biological parents. The adoptees all speak of a similar experience – on the one hand the desire to find out who their real parents are, and on the other hand – the great difficulty of confronting their adoptive parents, who perceive this move as ingratitude and distrust. Even those who manage to overcome these difficulties, tell us that in fact it is impossible for them to locate the biological family – adoption files do not exist, or exist but contain only partial records, and this does not enable them to locate the biological family. Families seeking to locate their children who disappeared encounter similar problems: non-existent documents, incomplete records, forged signatures and procedures which block access to information (especially in the Ministry of the Interior). Even in cases where parents were able to locate their child, they cannot force the disclosure on the child, for both legal and emotional reasons.

 

The tragedy of the families and the adopted children is manifold – the many parents whose child was taken away and have passed away in recent years without ever learning of his/her fate; children who were separated from their parents and families, many forced into institutions and orphanages, believing that they were abandoned by their parents; siblings and entire communities that grew up in the shadow of this tragedy. The families continue to bear the pain of this affair even now – when the denial and concealment prevent them from finding out what happened to their loved ones, or from the chance of finding some comfort in discovering what occurred, and perhaps reuniting with their disappeared children and siblings. (For further reading about the adoptees see Shlomi Hatuka’s investigative report).

Similar affairs from around the world

Similar affairs in the Western world, of removing babies and children from their parents, and handing them over to “more worthy” families or to institutions, have come to light in recent years. In Canada, Australia, and Switzerland children were taken out of families perceived as “backward,” and given to adoption or sent to an institution, as part of a policy of “assimilation” designed to re-educate those groups and eliminate their spiritual and cultural existence. In Ireland, young women who gave birth out of wedlock were forced to give their children up for adoption, imposed by Catholic institutions with the state’s approval. About 1,500 children and infants were taken from their families in the colony of Reunion and sent to France. They were falsely promised education and welfare there, but in practice they served as cheap labor, suffered psychological , physical, and sexual abuse, and were entirely cut off from their families. In Argentine, hundreds of babies of dissident parents were kidnapped during the military dictatorship from 1976 to 1983. In Spain thousands of babies were kidnapped close to their birth and sold for adoption after the parents were told that their child had died. The kidnapping was committed for financial gain, and it involved nurses, doctors, private hospitals and nuns. In many cases, exposing the affairs resulted in media exposure and heavy public pressure that eventually led to procedures of inquiry, recognition and the acceptance of responsibility by the state.

 

In the affairs referred to here, several factors that enabled the deeds exist simultaneously – racism, and a patronizing attitude that assumes there are parents and families who especially deserve to raise children, and on the other hand – there are families who do not deserve to raise their children, “inferior” people from whom it is acceptable and even desirable to take away the children. Families from the “wrong” groups – poor families, families of low social status, single mothers or families with a different culture or a different political outlook – all these are seen as groups that cannot and do not deserve to raise their children. These affairs, like the disappearance of the children of Yemen, the East and the Balkans, can be termed “crimes of racism and patronising”.

Demands and Goals

  • Official recognition of the affair of the children’s disappearance – infants and toddlers were taken from their parents by fraud and coercion. The children were given to adoption, sometimes sold for money, sometimes transferred to orphanages, all without their parents’ knowledge or approval.
  • Official recognition of the of the racist background of the affair – these actions became possible in the context of a racist and discriminatory perception of the immigrant families, most of them immigrants from the East, as families that are incapable and do not deserve to raise their children.
  • A public investigation of the medical and scientific aspects of the affair. The state must come clean regarding the nature of the medical treatments used on the immigrants, including experimental treatments for scientific research which were used on the immigrants without their consent.
  • Adding the affair of the children of Yemen, the East and the Balkans to secondary school curricula.
  • Complete public transparency regarding the affair, and the release of all the relevant materials and documents which are in government and private archives, in order to enable the children to be located and all the levels of the truth about the affair to be exposed.
  • Setting up a professional body for locating each of the children, including funding DNA tests for the families and the adoptees, and examining adoption and late registration files.
  • Clearing the name of Rabbi Uzi Meshulam.
  • Compensation for the victims of the affair

We have a number of purposes for re-igniting the public debate on the affair:

Providing a space for the families and their stories, for the enormous pain and suffering that was their lot, which continues to be denied by Israeli society. Even today the families are treated as suffering from “hallucinations,” and sometimes parents are even accused of abandoning their children. The families, who lost hope that the affair will be handled appropriately by the establishment, continued carrying the open wound without being able to speak legitimately about the tragedy that struck them. Therefore, the primary goal of our consciousness-raising evenings is “community healing” – not to wait for recognition by the establishment but to work within the community and for the community to alleviate even a little of the suffering of the families.

 

Carrying out the wishes of the deceased parents- many parents whose children disappeared continued to search for them, and they left us a will: “We want our children to know we did not abandon them.” Knowing this is important not only for the families but also for adopted children who grew up with a serious feeling of abandonment.

 

Applying public pressure to open the archives that are closed to the public. We demand to open the relevant files to any family and anyone who requests them, in order to understand what happened to their missing children, as well as full access to the testimonies given to the investigation committee by the different agents involved in the affair.

 

Israeli society must recognize the case as a serious crime of patronizing. The removal of children from their families by force and deceit is defined by the UN as genocide. Israeli society must learn from this affair of the dangers of racist and patronizing attitudes, and conduct some serious soul-searching concerning the past and present of this society.

I felt embarrassed, suddenly I was ashamed of my jewelry

I mean, my jewelry are part of my Mizrahi (Eastern) identity

While she “freed” me from male oppression

She trapped me in another cage

It’s something that feminism should ask itself:

Why religious women, Mizrahi women and Arab women can’t find a place in it

it is a question that needs to be asked.

A few years ago I met Shlomi Hatuka (Mizrahi poet & activist)

He began to show me stories of people, I was shocked. Shocked!

I said: “It can’t be true!”

He told me: ‘Look, it happened. Children were simply abducted here ‘

Between 48 and 54 is the peak of the event

Children and babies are taken from their parents

Many mothers say: ‘We saw the boy, the baby was alive, I did not see a body, I have not seen a Tomb …

and I did not see the child ever since.

What the Yemenite families claim is that the children were taken from them

And were sold or given up for adoption to Ashkenazi families

My mom saw that I am interested in the topic

and she told me: ‘You know that they tried to take Grandma’s baby as well?”

She gave birth in a transit camp (“Maabara”), and at the same time some other women gave birth

And the baby was taken from them at birth and they told them: ‘The baby is dead! ”

My grandmother refused to believe. She just went there, searched through the rooms, she was lucky

She just found him, picked him up and left

And the other women who were with her, who gave their babies

They have not seen the babies since

Some children were taken from their families and not even given up for adoption, they just stayed in institutions

It’s like in the kibbutz where the children “belong” to everyday. this social concept that children are everyone’s

“So she has eight children but she has non so we’ll divide them!”

Social justice at the expense of the weak

Now, the parents who have taken adoptions

Isn’t it reasonable to go and check that the children you adopted were given up legally?

Not only that they didn’t check that, but even in cases when Yemeni families were able to find the child

They slammed the door in their face, said to them: “If you’ll come here, we’ll call the police! ”

People always say: ‘Oh they did not say anything!” That’s not true-

They went to the police, filed complaints, wrote letters to ministers, all sorts of government officials

they were simply ignored!

After 16, 17 years the parents began to receive military induction orders for the children who allegedly died

Every eighth child at the time, every eighth child, dissapeared

it’s a collective trauma

And then people wonder that we created a society with fundamental distrust between its parts

All these institutions of MCHC and nurses and that

So women developed a total lack of trust in these systems

Every time a nurse came to visit they would hide their children

The “Yemenite children affair” is not only about Ashkenazi versus Sephardi

It’s also about women versus women

Around this issue of “Feminine Solidarity” I always say to myself: Wait, but there’s this original sin here that we have not discussed yet!”

Ashkenazi women who came to Yemeni mothers and simply ripped babies out of their hands

The government Committees say: “Let me handle this!”

Three committees examined the issue and said: ‘It did not happen! ”

They literally tried to cover their tracks

We do not have these documents, we have testimonials, we have the families

Just as a Holocaust survivor comes and tells his story no one tells him: ‘Give me documents to prove that you were in the Holocaust”

You can not stand in front of a mother who tells you how her boy was taken from her hands. Not just taken, ripped out of her hands

And remain indifferent

This affair is so shocking that it must be part of the public discourse in Israel

It must be part of what you learn in the curriculum

Because you can’t learn about racism in Israeli society without this provision.

Not long ago the University of Haifa published published a study

which concluded that child’s chances of taken out of his home by social services is doubled if he is a Mizrahi child

The perception is that the Blacker the family is the less adequate it is to raise children, it is less cultured

and it is bellow the rest in every possible way.

When Israelis meet Germans they often wonder: What did they do? What their grandfather did during the Holocaust? ”

So many times I look at people. It could be just people on the street

And I think to myself: ‘Where was their grandmother? ”

Was she a nurse in a nursing room?”

I mean, this is Jews versus Jews, it is inconceivable

taking children from a community is defined by international law as genocide

It is defined a as a type of genocide

Because if you take the children then you actually cut the continuity of this group

I heard a story from a women whose grandmother said in a kind of acceptance:

“God healed their wound with the girl they took away from me”

This woman needs to get a prize, “The Israel Prize”!

Instead they tell her: ‘You are hallucinating… you are insane”

THE ZIONIST STATE’S CRIMES AGAINST THE JEWS

06 January 2021  23 Tevet 5781 http://palmtreeofdeborah.blogspot.com/2021/01/the-zionist-states-crimes-against-jews.html

Whether it is Ben Hecht’s book Perfidy or Barry Chamish’s voluminous exposés, tales of the Ringworm Children or the stolen Yemenite babies, the Modern Zionist State’s crimes against Jews have been documented.  Here is just the latest.

Israel Is Pfizer’s Lab Rat

Ehud Barak Spills the Beans: Israel Is Pfizer’s Lab Rat for Covid-19 Vaccine Experimentation

Former Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Barak, who is no less treacherous or traitorous than Netanyahu, in a pique over the present Prime Minister’s glory-grabbing over his vaccine ‘success,’ spills the beans to a Ynet reporter about why Pfizer made the deal.  According to Barak, it had nothing to do with Netanyahu’s personal appeal to the company’s CEO, but everything to do with the Israeli population’s being the perfect lab rat for experimentation.

 

According to reports, it was made clear to Pfizer that Israel’s centralized healthcare system with its decades of records on every citizen (which would necessarily be made accessible to them) would make its population the ideal test subject as “… if someone in a high-risk group is given the vaccine and then dies, it is much easier to identify a background disease or condition as the cause of death.”

 

“This data is a treasure trove for Pfizer. With this data, Pfizer can show that it vaccinated an entire high-risk population in a country with no deaths wholly attributable to the vaccine,” Barak said.

 

“These data are a treasure, which is why Pfizer, with deliberate intent, put Israel first to receive the vaccine. Not because of Netanyahu’s talks with the CEO.”

Lancet Issues Major Disclaimer On Anti-HCQ Study, As Manufactured Disinformation Foments Hysterics

by Tyler Durden 02June2020 https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/exposing-manufactured-disinformation-enabling-hydroxychloroquine-hysterics

The Lancet has issued a major disclaimer regarding a study which prompted the World Health Organization to halt global trials of hydroxychloroquine (HCQ), an anti-Malaria drug currently being used around the world to treat COVID-19.

 

As we noted last week, major data discrepancies have called the entire study into question – though the lead author says it does not change the study’s findings that patients who received HCQ died at higher rates and experienced more cardiac complications than without.

Until the data has been audited, The Lancet issued the following “expression of concern” regarding the study.

“Important scientific questions have been raised about data reported in the paper by Mandeep Mehra et al,” reads the “expression of concern” from The Lancet.

“Although an independent audit of the provenance and validity of the data has been commissioned by the authors not affiliated with Surgisphere and is ongoing, with results expected very shortly, we are issuing an Expression of Concern to alert readers to the fact that serious scientific questions have been brought to our attention. We will update this notice as soon as we have further information.”

-The Lancet

Of course, this is yet more evidence of the manufactured disinformation surrounding HCQ that Richard Moss, MD, (via AmericanThinker.com)  exposes below…

 

I took hydroxychloroquine for two years.  A long time ago as a visiting cancer surgeon in Asia, in Thailand, Nepal, India, and Bangladesh.  From 1987 to 1990.  Malaria is rife there.  I took it for prophylaxis, 400 milligrams once a week for two years.  Never had any trouble.  It was inexpensive and effective.

 

I started it two weeks before and was supposed to continue it through my stay and four weeks after returning.  But I stopped it after two years.  I was worried about potential side effects of which there are many, as with all drugs right down to Tylenol and aspirin.  These, however, are rare.  At a certain point, I was prepared to take my chances with mosquitoes and plasmodium, and so I stopped.

 

Chloroquine, the precursor of HCQ, was invented by Bayer in 1934.  Hydroxychloroquine was developed during World War II as a safer, synthetic alternative and approved for medical use in the U.S. in 1955.

 

The World Health Organization considers it an essential medicine, among the safest and most effective medicines, a staple of any healthcare system.  In 2017, US doctors prescribed it 5 million times, the 128th most commonly prescribed drug in the country.  There have been hundreds of millions of prescriptions worldwide since its inception.  It is one of the cheapest and best drugs in the world and has saved millions of lives.  Doctors also prescribe it for Lupus and Rheumatoid arthritis patients who may consume it for their lifetimes with few or no ill effects.

Then something happened to this wonder drug.

 

Hydroxychloroquine

Hydroxychloroquine

 

From savior of the multitudes, redeemer and benefactor of hundreds of millions, it transformed into something else: a purveyor of doom, despair, and unspeakable carnage.

 

Hydroxychloroquine and Trump

Hydroxychloroquine and Trump

 

It began when President Trump discussed it as a possible treatment for COVID-19 on March 19, 2020.  The gates of hell burst forth on May 18 when Trump casually announced that he was taking it, prescribed by his physician. 

 

Attacks on Trump and this otherwise harmless little molecule poured in.  The heretofore respected, commonly used, and highly effective medicinal became a major threat to life, a nefarious and wicked chemical that could alter critical heart rhythms, resulting in sudden cataclysmic death for unsuspecting innocents.  Trump, more than irresponsible, was evil incarnate for daring to even mention it.  While at it, the salivating media trotted out the canard about Trump’s nonrecommendation for injecting Clorox and Lysol or drinking fish-tank cleaner to combat COVID.  It was Charlottesville all over again. 

 

Before a nation of non-cardiologists, the media agonized over, of all things, the prolongation of the now infamous “QT interval,” and the risk of sudden cardiac death.  The FDA and NIH piled on, piously demanding randomized, controlled, double-blind studies before physicians prescribed HCQ.  No one mentioned that the risk of cardiac arrest was far higher from watching the Superbowl. Nor did the media declare that HCQ and chloroquine have been used throughout the world for half a century, making them among the most widely prescribed drugs in history with not a single reported case of “arrhythmic death” according to the sainted WHO and the American College of Cardiology.  Or that physicians in the field, on the frontlines, so to speak, based on empirical evidence, have found benefit in treating patients with a variety of agents including HCQZincAzithromycin, Quercetin, Elderberry supplements, Vitamins D and C with few if any complications.  Or that while such regimens may not cure, they may help and carry little or no risk.

 

And so, the world was aflame once again with a nonstory driven by the COVID media.  The HCQ divide within the nation is only a continuation of innumerable divides that have surfaced since the pandemic began — and before.  One will know the politics of an individual based on his position on any number of pandemic issues: lockdowns, sheltering in place, face masks, social distancing, “elective surgery,” and “essential businesses.”  The closing of schools and colleges.  Blue states and Red states.  Governor Cuomo or Governor DeSantis.  Nationwide injunctions or federalism.  The WHO and Red China.  Or, pre-pandemic, Brexit, open borders, DACA, and amnesty.  CBD oil, turmeric, and legalizing marijuana.  Russia Collusion, Trump’s taxes, the 25th amendment, Stormy Daniels, the Ukraine non-scandal, and impeachment. Or Obamagate. And now HCQ.

 

HCQ is only another bellwether.  It represents the latest nonevent in a long string of fabricated media nonscandals.  If a nation can be divided over HCQ it can be divided over anything.  It shows neatly, as many of the other non-issues did, whether one embraces the U.S., our history, culture, and constitutional system, or rejects it.  Whether one believes in Americanism or despises it.  It is part of the ongoing civil war, thus far cold, but who knows?  The passions today are no less jarring than they were in 1860.  One would have thought that a man taking a medicine prescribed by his physician, even a President, would be a private matter.  But no.  Not today.

 

We swim in an ocean of manufactured disinformation created by a radical COVID media, our fifth column.  They inflame the nation one way or another based on political whims.  The propaganda arm of the Left, they seek victory at all costs including dismantling the economy, culture, and our governing system.  Is there a curative for the COVID media and their Democrat allies who would destroy a nation to destroy Trump?  He is all that stands between us and them.  Is there an antiviral for this, the communist virus that has infected the nation, metastasized throughout its corpus, and now threatens the republic?

The Ministry of Health has been lying and making thing up from April 2020. Health Minister Yaakov Litzman quit over the lies

Arutz Sheva http://www.israelnationalnews.com/

18May2020-Health Minister Yaakov Litzman: There was an overreaction on coronavirus

Outgoing Health Minister: I shouted during the government meeting when the Director-General said there could be 10,000 coronavirus deaths.

Ben Ariel, 18May2020 https://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/280391

Outgoing Health Minister Yaakov Litzman said on Sunday that he, too, thought there was an overreaction when preparing for the coronavirus outbreak.

 

Speaking in an interview on Reshet Bet radio, Litzman claimed that Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu “responded to the fears of the Director-General of the Ministry of Health, Moshe Bar Siman Tov.”

 

“I, too, thought it was an overreaction when my Director-General said there could be ten thousand dead. I shouted during the government meeting, in his presence, that it would not happen. The Prime Minister accepted this exaggeration and responded to the fears of the Director-General, I am not complaining about him, because overall the situation is excellent.”

 

Litzman also spoke about his new role as Minister of Construction and Housing, and made it clear that he would look out for everyone, including the haredi public. “There is no shame in helping the haredi sector,” he added. “I want every young couple in Israel to have an apartment.”

 

According to the Ministry of Health’s data, there are 3,403 active cases of coronavirus in Israel, 44 of whom are in serious condition. To date, 272 Israelis have died of the coronavirus and 12,942 have recovered.

Feiglin: Health officials lied through their teeth

Former MK recounts to Avi Abelow his experience at Knesset Health Committee hearing on COVID shot for children.

Arutz Sheva Staff, 22November2021 https://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/317364

Israeli Knesset Committee on Shots for Kids with Former Knesset Member Moshe Feiglin

 

Former MK Moshe Feiglin recounted to Avi Abelow his experience at last week’s Knesset Health Committee hearing on the COVID shot for children.

Feiglin accused Israeli health officials of “lying through their teeth” to push an agenda of vaccinating children.

 

He said that Public Health Services Chief Sharon Alroy-Preis referring to “kids who got infected from COVID as sick even though they have no symptoms” was misleading.

 

“They’re not sick, they’re absolutely healthy. They got the disease without even feeling it and became naturally immune – the best type of immunity you can get.”

 

He also said Alroy-Preis had claimed “one kid in Israel has already died from COVID, and that was a lie. No kid has died from COVID in Israel and I proved it during her speech.” In footage from the hearing, Feiglin is seen explaining that the child in question had COVID antibodies though he was not sick with COVID, but his death was nevertheless attributed to COVID by the government.

 

Feiglin was also critical of Dr. Boaz Lev, who heads the Health Ministry team for combatting the coronavirus, for failing to address evidence of serious side effects.

 

“They got together a community of 75 doctors like him – each one of which either works for the Health Ministry or is head of a hospital or some kind of organization heavily financed by Pfizer. In other words, they picked a group of people, knowing exactly how they would vote, and got 73 out of 75 voting in favor.

 

“When I asked Dr. Lev about this, he said ‘we came to the conclusion there are no serious side effects [of the COVID shot].’ I asked him, have you heard of a little side effect called death? He said no, of course not. So I told him, have you heard of the 16,000 deaths reported by the VAERS [Vaccine Adverse Effects Reporting System] in the US? He said no.

 

“This is the trial of our kids, and you haven’t heard about 16,000 cases of death reported in the official American system for reporting vaccine side effects? This is insane,” he said.

Feiglin at the hearing:

Tombstone:Woman was murdered by Hospital Covid Ward

Tombstone claims woman was ‘murdered by COVID ward’

Grave marker lists recently deceased elderly woman as ‘murder victim’ of COVID ward at hospital in central Israel.

Arutz Sheva Staff, 24October2021 https://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/315614

A grave marker recently put in place for a woman who died last month has drawn attention across Israel, after images of it were uploaded to social media networks.

 

The unusual grave marker claims that the woman whose remains are interred beneath was “murdered” by the hospital staff at the COVID ward in Beilinson Medical Center in Petah Tikva.

“Murdered by Beilinson Hospital in the coronavirus ward on the 20th of September 2021. May her blood be avenged.” the grave marker reads.

The woman in question was 71 at the time of her death, was rushed to the hospital after suffered a pulmonary embolism and a heart attack.

 

Hospital officials responded Sunday afternoon, condemning the claims made on the grave marker.

 

“Serious, incitement, and lacking any basis in fact,” officials said.

 

“The woman in question was elderly and unvaccinated when she was brought to the hospital after being treated at home for a significant period,” the hospital said in a statement. “She was admitted after suffering a heart attack and a pulmonary embolism, and passed away with a raging case of COVID.”

 

“The COVID ward staff at the hospital, who treated and continue to treat hundreds of patients with dedication and professionalism are working day and night to save lives.”

English Translation “Was murdered ”

Real-News-IL-tweet-24October2021-'Murdered by Beilinson Hospital in the coronavirus ward on the 20th of September 2021. May her blood be avenged” the grave marker reads.

Democrats BEG for covid forgiveness after DESTROYING the lives of millions

02November2022 by: https://www.naturalnews.com/2022-11-02-democrats-beg-for-covid-forgiveness-after-destroying-the-lives-of-millions.html

This article may contain statements that reflect the opinion of the author

(Natural News) In anticipation of the coming Nuremberg 2.0 criminal trials that will seek the indictment of covid co-conspirators who mass murdered millions of people across the globe, Democrats are now begging for “amnesty,” hoping we will all forgive and forget what they did to the victims. The raw tyranny and authoritarian spite demonstrated by Democrats in their mad push for mandatory vaccines, cruel lockdowns of children and the economic destruction of small businesses is simply supposed to be waved away and forgotten, according to Emily Oster, writing for The Atlantic, a left-wing globalist propaganda mouthpiece.

 

Oster — who pushed for vaccines, social distancing and masks — claims that the people pushing all the covid tyranny simply didn’t know what they were doing.

 

In other words, they were all just following orders and should therefore be forgiven. This is the same excuse offered by Nazis in East Berlin, who begged for mercy after slaughtering innocent civilians who were merely trying to escape tyranny.

 

According to rigorous estimates published by Steve Kirsh, Ed Dowd and others, covid vaccines have already likely killed more than one million people in America alone. Globally, at least 20 million people have been killed by these vaccines, with billions facing disability due to vaccine injuries.

An epic backlash against the tyrants

The backlash against Oster’s article has been truly epic. Across the ‘net, pundits and truthers unleashed a backlash of fury against Oster and The Atlantic for daring to suggest that all their crimes against humanity should simply be forgotten and forgiven without even an apology from those who mercilessly pushed covid tyranny (and destroyed millions of lives in the process). John Nolte from Breitbart.com probably said it best in a recent article, stating:

 

There will be no forgiveness before there’s a reckoning for the mercenary liars who abused our elderly and children.

There will be no moving on before there’s justice for those who were bankrupted, fined, jailed, mourned alone, forced into lonely despair, and stripped of youth’s magic and irreplaceable moments.

 

Most of all, there will be no reprieve because you are not sorry; because given the opportunity, you will do it all over again; because you are vicious, heartless, mercenary, politically-driven bullies only asking for amnesty so you can catch us off guard the next time.

 

Nolte is correct. The left-wing covid tyrants — sometimes called covidians — have no remorse. They offer no apology. They are begging for mercy simply because they got caught abusing others, and they hope to never face the consequences for their own actions.

If you want forgiveness, here’s what needs to happen

We call for a legal and lawful process of investigating and indicting all those who pushed covid crimes upon the world, followed by prosecutions and due process court hearings. Nuremberg 2.0 needs to get under way so that the truth is told and those responsible are exposed for their crimes.

 

In addition, we suggest all the following actions:

 

1) A nationwide apology by all the media outlets who pushed covid lies, vaccine propaganda, mask nonsense and social distancing disinformation. Front page. Large font. Full admission of guilt.

2) The reinstatement of all the people fired for refusing masks, vaccines, etc., with full back pay.

3) The construction of a “COVID Wall of SHAME” monument specifically naming the criminals who are found guilty in taking part in this global covid conspiracy that targeted humanity. At the same time, we must also erect a “COVID Wall of HEROES” to publicly acknowledge those who told the truth, who stood up to tyranny and who saved lives by resisting the covid insanity. (Let’s start with Z for Zelenko…)

4) We need some guarantee that left-wing tyrants won’t try this again, because they are constantly seeking new ways to control people, destroy lives and achieve global depopulation. How can we be assured they aren’t already cooking up another nefarious toxin or pathogen to unleash upon the world?

I cover all this and more in today’s podcast via Brighteon.com:

– Democrats are begging for covid AMNESTY because they got caught
– But they have NO remorse, and they aren’t sorry. They are EVIL.
– Dems need to offer nationwide APOLOGY for covid tyranny, censorship and lies
– Those who were FIRED need to be reinstated with back pay
– All assets of vax pharma executives should be SEIZED
– Funds should be used to pay families of VACCINE VICTIMS
– We donate nearly $14K to California attorneys suing hospitals for covid murder
– Why God rewards those who pay it forward and don’t hoard money for themselves
– Eurozone inflation soars beyond 10% as Europe faces winter of collapse
– Nearly 40% of small businesses in USA can’t pay rent
– The US economy has been WRECKED by Biden and the Dems
– Important thoughts about FORGIVENESS – but only after apologies are given
– Which items still work after an EMP attack

Democracy-Police beating old man-freedom

 

In a stunning article published in the academic journal “Minerva”, the mainstream academic publisher Springer has allowed truth to be spoken. Minerva may not be known to many of you, but by no means is it “obscure.” It has a decent 5-year impact factor of 2.7. (That is decent for the social sciences, anyway.). And it’s a Q1 journal in its subfield. And by the way, the first author on the paper is Yaffa Shir-Raz, who broke the story with video from the internal meeting at the Israeli ministry of health and how they hid many of the key findings regarding the Pfizer mRNA vaccine adverse effects.

Censorship and Suppression of Covid‑19 Heterodoxy: Tactics and Counter‑Tactics

Yaffa Shir‑Raz, Ety Elisha. Brian Martin. Natti Ronel, Josh Guetzkow

Accepted: 28 September 2022, Published online: 01 November 2022

Having personally lived through what may be among the most intensive slander, defamation and derision campaigns of the COVIDcrisis, none of what was described in this article surprised me. I think that I can probably guess the names of some of the interviewed physicians and medical scientists discussed in the article, as so many have shared their own experiences with me. But seeing it written out in a dry academic style and published like a case series study of global corporate, organizational and governmental psychopathology and greed is another thing altogether. I expected the article to bring a tear of relief at being heard and validated, but instead it just left me numb.

 

The publication summarized much of what I have personally experienced (and by way of disclosure of conflict of interest, I was mentioned as an example in the introduction, although I did not participate in the survey). Much but not all. It missed the ubiquitous Wikipedia re-writing of personal history (and in my case, writing me out of the history of nine of my issued US patents).

 

It missed Amazon deleting the very credible and well referenced book on “Prepare and protect from the novel Coronavirus” which Dr. Jill Glasspool-Malone PhD (Biotechnology and Public Policy) had worked so hard to publish in the first week of February 2020 – with the only explanation being that it “violated community standards”.

 

It missed the concerted effort to deny my contributions as a young man to coming up with the whole idea of using mRNA as a drug or vaccine, and developing the technology to the point where it was proven in a mouse model. It missed the (largely successful) stolen valor campaign to credit two scientists (one a Fauci post doc, the other a Bio-N-Tech VP) who came along almost a decade after my work and sought to take credit for my contributions while writing me out of history.

 

It missed the professional infiltration and disruption campaigns designed to destroy the American trucker protest movement and the medical freedom movements. It missed the YouTube deletions of US Senate testimony convened by a sitting US Senator, Ron Johnson.

 

It missed the incredibly ugly campaign waged in Maui against a fifth generation Hawaiian former military service MD who had the temerity (as a beloved local public health officer) to insist that he see data justifying genetic COVID vaccination of pregnant women with an unlicensed product before he would recommend that procedure. It missed the Maui-based MD/PhD Pediatric Cardiologist (and devout Pastor with a long history of voluntary public works) which was similarly railroaded for raising concerns about myocarditis in children who received the gene therapy-based COVID vaccines.

 

It missed the storm of controversy and censorship triggered by my participating in a conversation with Mr. Joe Rogan, which reached such a fever pitch that a member of congress inserted a transcript of that discussion into the congressional record as a method to insure a permanent historic record of the discussion.

 

It also missed the 17,000 Physicians and Medical Scientists who endorsed the declarations of the Global Covid Summit. It missed the Biden White House appropriating the name “Global Covid Summit” and holding their own in an effort to flood the information zone and internet searches with its own propaganda.

 

But it got a lot right, and it has documented that these attacks against medical care providers and medical scientists have happened in an amazingly coordinated fashion all over the world.

 

What has happened to the western world? The Chinese Communist Party censorship policies and practices which we once ridiculed, the ham handed propaganda of the former Soviet Union, have become assimilated and normalized throughout the west. We have met the enemy, and we have become him.

We have met the enemy and he is us

We have met the enemy and he is us

Following is the short version of this academic publication, the abstract.

Abstract: The emergence of COVID-19 has led to numerous controversies over COVID-related knowledge and policy. To counter the perceived threat from doctors and scientists who challenge the official position of governmental and intergovernmental health authorities, some supporters of this orthodoxy have moved to censor those who promote dissenting views. The aim of the present study is to explore the experiences and responses of highly accomplished doctors and research scientists from different countries who have been targets of suppression and/or censorship following their publications and statements in relation to COVID-19 that challenge official views. Our findings point to the central role played by media organizations, and especially by information technology companies, in attempting to stifle debate over COVID-19 policy and measures. In the effort to silence alternative voices, widespread use was made not only of censorship, but of tactics of suppression that damaged the reputations and careers of dissenting doctors and scientists, regardless of their academic or medical status and regardless of their stature prior to expressing a contrary position. In place of open and fair discussion, censorship and suppression of scientific dissent has deleterious and far-reaching implications for medicine, science, and public health.


So how did we even get here? Step by normalizing step. With former President Barack Obama leading every step of the way.

Barack Obama criticises censorship in meeting with Chinese students

Barack Obama, the US president, has strongly criticised censorship in his first public appearance in China, veering directly into one of the most sensitive areas of Communist party policy.

Mr Obama told an audience of 400 Chinese students that freedom of “expression, and worship, of access to information and political participation” were “universal rights”….

Obama: The internet is “the single biggest threat to our democracy”

President Obama loved the internet. Now he has second thoughts.

By Peter Kafka Nov 16, 2020, 3:30pm EST

Obama was calling for a “serious conversation” about our information dystopia two years ago. Now he’s calling for “a combination of government regulations and corporate practices” to deal with it.

 

It is difficult to be optimistic that we’ll get there. It’s hard to see the federal government regulating big tech in a serious way, because Democrats and Republicans don’t have shared facts about the problem; Republicans, in fact, have elected a QAnon promoter to Congress. And Big Tech isn’t remotely comfortable regulating itself — it would rather have government regulate big tech. And it would be surprising if Joe Biden — who had little to say about tech during his presidential campaign — and Kamala Harris — a longtime ally of Silicon Valley — make it a focus in a pandemic presidency.

Barack Obama Takes On a New Role: Fighting Disinformation

The former president has embarked on a campaign to warn that the scourge of online falsehoods has eroded the foundations of democracy.

Barack Obama-tweet-19April2022-In recent years, we've seen how quickly disinformation spreads

Barack Obama-tweet-19April2022-In recent years, we’ve seen how quickly disinformation spreads

Mr. Obama is making another trip to Silicon Valley, this time with a grimmer message about the threat that the tech giants have created to the nation itself.

 

In private meetings and public appearances over the last year, the former president has waded deeply into the public fray over misinformation and disinformation, warning that the scourge of falsehoods online has eroded the foundations of democracy at home and abroad.

 

“I think it is reasonable for us as a society to have a debate and then put in place a combination of regulatory measures and industry norms that leave intact the opportunity for these platforms to make money but say to them that there’s certain practices you engage in that we don’t think are good for society,” Mr. Obama, now 60, said at a conference on disinformation this month organized by the University of Chicago and The Atlantic.


And now this has all been completely normalized under years nine and ten of the (interrupted) Obama-Biden presidential administration, and incorporated into an Administrative State edict.

Summary of Terrorism Threat to the U.S. Homeland

•“The United States remains in a heightened threat environment fueled by several factors, including an online environment filled with false or misleading narratives and conspiracy theories, and other forms of mis- dis- and mal-information (MDM) introduced and/or amplified by foreign and domestic threat actors.…The primary terrorism-related threat to the United States continues to stem from lone offenders or small cells of individuals who are motivated by a range of foreign and/or domestic grievances often cultivated through the consumption of certain online content.

 

•Key factors contributing to the current heightened threat environment include:

 

•The proliferation of false or misleading narratives, which sow discord or undermine public trust in U.S. government institutions

 

•For example, there is widespread online proliferation of false or misleading narratives regarding unsubstantiated widespread election fraud and COVID-19.

 

•Grievances associated with these themes inspired violent extremist attacks during 2021.”

 

•“As COVID-19 restrictions continue to decrease nationwide, increased access to commercial and government facilities and the rising number of mass gatherings could provide increased opportunities for individuals looking to commit acts of violence to do so, often with little or no warning.

 

•Meanwhile, COVID-19 mitigation measures—particularly COVID-19 vaccine and mask mandates—have been used by domestic violent extremists to justify violence since 2020 and could continue to inspire these extremists to target government, healthcare, and academic institutions that they associate with those measures.”


So, here we are. The US Government lies about “domestic violent extremists” justifying violence (?? What violence ??) based on resistance to “COVID-19 mitigation measures—particularly COVID-19 vaccine and mask mandates”, and both corporate media and Big Tech do everything they can to support and reinforce that narrative.

Violence like this?

But what really happened? What happened to front line physicians and scientists who stood their ground and spoke truth to power? And why didn’t more physicians stand up and object?

People dumping their brains in front of the Alter of Science

People dumping their brains in front of the Alter of Science

Here are the findings from this limited study:

Findings

Study participants reported being subject to a wide variety of censorship and suppression tactics used against them by both the medical establishment and the media, due to their critical and unorthodox positions on COVID-19. They also described the counter-tactics they used to resist. We divide the findings into two sections, the first describing censorship and suppression tactics and the second describing the counter-tactics used by our participants.

Silencing Dissent: Censoring and Suppressing Tactics

Tactics of censorship and suppression described by our respondents include exclusion, derogatory labelling, hostile comments and threatening statements by the media, both mainstream and social; dismissal by the respondents’ employers; official inquiries; revocation of medical licenses; lawsuits; and retraction of scientific papers after publication.

Exclusion

Respondents reported how, at a very early stage of the epidemic, when they just began to express criticism or their different position, they were surprised to discover that the mainstream media, which until then had seen them as desirable interviewees, stopped interviewing them and accepting opinion pieces from them.

Denigration

Respondents reported that exclusion was only the first step: shortly after that they started being subjected to defamation by the media, and disparaged as “anti-vaxxers,” Covid deniers,” “dis/misinformation spreaders” and/or “conspiracy theorists”.

Recruiting “Third Parties” to Assist in Discrediting

One prominent tactic our respondents claim was used by the media to discredit them was the use of seemingly independent “third party sources,” such as other doctors, to undermine them, for example by writing defamatory articles.

 

Another “third party” source used by the media, according to our respondents, was “fact-checking” organizations, a practice that is ostensibly meant to verify published information to promote the veracity of reporting. However, some respondents alleged that the fact-checking groups were recruited and operated by corporate or other stakeholders to discredit them and try to discredit the information they presented.

 

Some of the participants said that those “factchecking” groups were used to discredit and defame not only the researcher or doctor who presented a contrarian opinion or information, but also others who were associated with them. Some respondents said that the media persecuted them to the point of blackening their name at their workplace, resulting in their dismissal, or that they were forced to resign.

Online Censorship

Some respondents reported being censored on social media networks (e.g., Facebook, Twitter, TikTok, YouTube, Google, LinkedIn), and said some of their posts, tweets, videos or even accounts were taken down by the networks.

 

Respondents noted that the removal of their materials from social networks was accompanied by a notice claiming they had violated the “community rules.” They emphasized that these were academic materials, backed up scientifically.

 

I became aware that an academic YouTube video that I had put together regarding the paper in the XXX journal … was pulled down by YouTube, and I received a notice that it had violated terms of the YouTube community… without ever having any terms of use from YouTube that would explain what types of terms would be applied to a four PowerPoint slide scientific video…

 

One of the respondents reported on censorship even in Google Docs, which means that even private communications are being censored:

 

Google Docs started restricting and censoring my ability to share documents… This is not Twitter throwing me off like they did. This is an organization telling me that I cannot send a private communication to a colleague or to a friend, or to a family member…

Censorship and Suppression by the Medical and Academic Establishment

Some of the respondents reported that they were subjected to defamation by their own institution, with the apparent intention to harm their reputation and careers. For example:

 

…in [my country], we have approximately 55,000 physicians. My name appeared on the official website of the Ministry of Health, that I’m the only person, one medical doctor who is… distributing disinformation…. There was a concerted effort to… ruin my reputation even though, this is unbelievable, they [the hospital where I work] had the lowest death rate basically in the world.

 

Some participants also said that they had received a clear message from the institution where they worked that they were not allowed to identify themselves with the institution when giving an interview or a testimony or expressing their views—in some cases as a condition of renewing their contract.

 

I gave X (a certain treatment) testimony, and that kind of went viral. And the hospital was not happy because my affiliation had shown up… They offered me a new contract. They said …, we got some new terms for you, because my old contract was not restricted. The new one basically had like seven or eight restrictions of my first amendment rights… basically I couldn’t talk to the press, I couldn’t speak in public…, unless I said, these are my opinions not that of my employer… It was a relatively short conversation. I said that’s never going to happen, I’m never going to sign that thing, and we said goodbye.

 

In some cases, respondents reported that following a position or criticism they expressed, they were dismissed from their institution, or were notified that their contract would not be renewed.

 

Similarly, respondents said they were summarily dismissed or disqualified from prestigious positions, such as serving on leading health or scientific committees, or editing medical journals, without due process or transparency.

 

In one case, the respondent had learned that his country’s parallel to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) intervened and asked the university to “examine” his “case”:

 

…my university president invited me to talk about “corona”. In that meeting, I was informed… that the [The equivalent health authority to the CDC in the interviewees’ country] had written a letter to the president, asking him to examine my case because, according to the ministerial letter, I was going public with methodologically questionable things. According to the president, the university has never received similar requests before…

 

Some of the interviewees said that the health establishment had not only blackened their reputation and taken serious measures against them but also cooperated with the media and made sure to spread the information about those measures through them.

Official Inquiries

Some doctors reported on official inquiries launched against them, such as investigating or threatening to withdraw their medical license.

 

One of the respondents reports that a million-dollar lawsuit was filed against him.

 

Another respondent reports on a police search conducted at his private clinic in his home.

Retraction of Scientific Papers

Some researchers and doctors recounted how their research had been retracted by the journal after publication.

 

Another theme that arose repeatedly during the interviews was that research critical of COVID-19 policies and orthodoxy were treated in ways the interviewees had never encountered before in their careers. This included having papers rejected from journals (often multiple times) without peer review, the journal review and publication process taking many months longer than typical for the journal, and even having papers rejected from pre-print servers such as MedRXiv.

 

In one case, an interviewee said he felt so threatened by the medical establishment that he refrained from putting his name on papers he co-authored with other researchers, and that those whose names do appear on the papers were trying to hide or stay under the radar until the paper was published.

But there is a ray of hope. A small number of physicians and medical scientists resisted.

Counter‑reaction: Fighting Back

The respondents noted that their initial reaction to the attacks and censorship was shock and surprise, since for the first time in their lives they felt excluded from the scientific/medical community, attacked by the media and sometimes by their employers, and/or disparaged as “conspiracy theorists” who endanger the public health. Yet, despite the censorship, the personal attacks and defamation, the dismissals, the damage to reputations and the economic price, all respondents nevertheless stated that none of it deterred them, and they decided to fight back, using various counter-tactics.

First Reactions: Shock and Surprise

Most respondents describe their initial reaction to the persecution and censorship they experienced as shock. Some said that they felt threatened, and for the first time, excluded from the scientific/medical community.

 

Respondents said that they felt that the threats, dismissals and attacks against them were in fact an attempt to silence them, just because their opinions were not aligned with those dictated by the authorities.

 

Some respondents said they felt that the censorship and unprecedented attacks they experienced were especially vicious because those who did it knew they were valued and influential.

Determined to Fight

Our respondents stated that the censorship and suppression they experienced made them want to fight back and make their voices heard more, on the grounds of freedom of speech and their concern for public health.

 

Some of them even noted that the attacks on their reputation made them even more determined and eager to expose the information that was being censored.

 

Some of the respondents said they decided to take official or legal actions against the organizations that censored them.

 

The respondents’ counter-reactions were expressed in several ways: a desire to disclose the act of censorship and the information that was censored, which they claim is evidence-based; use of alternative channels in order to spread their positions and views in relation to COVID-19 publicly; establishment of support networks with colleagues; and development of alternative medical and health information systems. That is, they created a kind of a parallel world to the mainstream establishment.

Exposing the Censorship

Some respondents stressed that they wanted to expose the censorship act itself.

Using Alternative Channels

Respondents noted that when they understood that they were censored by the mainstream media, they decided to use alternative channels, such as social media platforms, to spread their position and contrary information and voice their opinions in public.

 

Some of the respondents said that to protect themselves, they were forced to open “secret” telegram or anonymous Twitter accounts. Although they express frustration, they are still doing it in order to spread information. For example, one participant noted it is absurd that scientists should keep secret telegram accounts so that the government does not revoke their licenses or damage their reputations.

Creating Social Support Networks

Some of the respondents revealed that they created support networks of fellow scientists, physicians, lawyers and politicians with similar views and opinions. These networks were used not only to exchange information, but also to receive support and empathy from “outsiders” like them, to make new friends and create a new community.

Developing Alternative Medical and Health Information Systems

Beyond their activities in disseminating information and data, some of the respondents noted that they are working to establish new alternative platforms and organizations dedicated to developing and providing health information and medical treatments— including new journals and non-profits, instead of the existing ones, which they claim have failed and disappointed. They explain this as a means of coping with the censorship and suppression they experienced due to their opposing positions, which grant them a sense of hope and a feeling that they are building “a new world”.

Discussion

The censorship tactics reported by our respondents are consistent with those identified in Jansen and Martin’s (2015) framework on the dynamics of censorship, including:

1. Cover-Up—Our findings show that this tactic was very prominent, which is not surprising, since, as Jansen and Martin noted, if people aren’t aware of censorship, they are not upset about it. The cover-up tactics included various methods. For example, using third-party sources such as other doctors or “fact-checkers” to discredit dissident scientists and doctors. Since these sources are portrayed as independent, they help mask the real sources behind the censorship.

2. Devaluation—This tactic was described by our study respondents and included various aspects, such as publishing false and disparaging claims about them, dismissing them from work in academia or medical institutions, and stripping them of various senior positions—all actions that were felt by our respondents to be intended to undermine their credibility and legitimacy. The tactic of devaluation, also known as a “negative campaign” or a “smear campaign,” is often used by corporations, and its aim is to harm the reputation of an individual or a group (Griffin 2012; Lau and Rovner 2009). Smear campaigns help distract public attention from the content of the targets’ message and deflect the discussion from the criticism or allegations raised and instead focus the attention on those raising these allegations.

3. Reinterpretation—This tactic involves framing censorship as a means of “protecting the public” from the dissenting doctors and scientists, portraying them as “misinformation spreaders” endangering public health in a time of crisis. This framing echoes attempts by policymakers in other areas to justify censorship by arguing that contradictory information might confuse the public and cause panic (Clarke 2002; Frewer et al. 2003; Sandman 2007; Gesser-Edelsburg and Shir-Raz 2016).

4. Official Channels—As our respondents described the censorship actions taken against them were only part of a wider range of silencing and repressive actions, which also included formal proceedings, such as investigating or withdrawing their medical licenses, suing them or ordering a police search of their homes.

5. Intimidation—The respondents interpreted all the above tactics as being intended to intimidate and deter them from continuing to publish their views and criticism, and also single them out in a way that implicitly invites harassment by others and serves as an example to other doctors and scientists. Some of our respondents noted they were intimidated to the point they felt it necessary to use an assumed name to continue operating on social media and/or avoid putting their names on papers they co-authored.

So you ask, “why didn’t more physicians stand up and object?”

Because the entire profession has been subjected to the most aggressive and coordinated propaganda, censorship, and defamation campaign the modern western world has ever seen.

And still some persevered.

Saint Augustine, the doctor of the Roman Catholic Church, famously said “The truth is like a Lion. You don’t have to defend it. Let it loose. It will defend itself.”

Integrity. Dignity. Community.

Three simple words that ring like bells.

Israeli People’s Committee releases report on adverse effects related to Covid-19 vaccine

Dr. Pinky Feinstein, chairman of independent Israeli group including doctors, attorneys and researchers, discusses findings of report.

Arutz Sheva Staff , May 24 , 2021 9:05 AM https://www.israelnationalnews.com/News/News.aspx/306730

The Israeli People’s Committee – Report of Adverse Effects Related to Corona Vaccine May 2021

https://www.the-people-committee.com   Click to download PDF file  Click to Download the .pdf report  The Israeli People`s Committee Report of Adverse Events Related to the Corona Vaccine, April 2021

Dr. Pinky Feinstein, the chairman of the Israeli People’s Committee, with a crucial message to the world – NEVER HAS A VACCINE INJURED SO MANY!
The American VAERS system reveals 3,409 reports of mortality amongst vaccinated people in the United States in the first 4 months of 2021.According to US VAERS system 7 deaths in ages 0-17 were reported in relation to Covid 19 vaccination during 2021, 6 of them of Pfizer-Biontec.

 

We received 330 reports of deaths occurring in proximity after the vaccination (90% up to 10 days after the vaccination). 64% are men. According to the ministry of health’s statement: only 45 deaths occurred in proximity after the vaccination.
According to data from the Central Bureau of Statistics (CBS), during January-March 2021, in the midst of the vaccination operation, there was a 18% increase in overall mortality in Israel compared to the tri-monthly average mortality in the previous year. In fact, the period of January-March 2021 is the deadliest one in the last decade, with the highest overall mortality rates, when compared to the corresponding months over the last 10 years. According to this assessment, it is possible to estimate that the number of deaths in Israel, which have occurred in proximity after the vaccination, currently stands at about 1600-1700 people. There is a high correlation between the number of people vaccinated per day and the number of deaths per day, in the range of up to 10 days post vaccination, in all age groups. The risk of death after the second vaccination is higher than the risk of death after the first vaccination. Up until the publication date of this report, a total of 2,646 reports of adverse events have been recorded by The Israeli People`s Committee, and the reports continue to flow in. These reports indicate damage to almost every system in the human body. They also highlight the incomprehensible gap between official Israeli media reports and what is really happening, enabling a “two worlds” situation due to journalistic failure to sense, identify and report on what is actually happening in citizens’ real-life.

 

This assessment is added to the fact that around 250,000 people did not show up to get the second dose of vaccine, despite all massive social and occupational pressure of the green passport. We believe that the majority of them decided to do so due to experiencing adverse effects following the first vaccine dose. In our analysis, we have found a relatively high rate of cardiac-related injuries. 25% of all cardiac events occurred in young people below the age of 40, the most common diagnosis in these cases being myocarditis or pericarditis.

 

Additionally, a high prevalence of massive vaginal bleeding, neurological, skeletal and skin damages have been observed.
It should be noted that a significant number of adverse events reported are related, directly or indirectly, to coagulopathy (myocardial infarction, stroke, miscarriages, disruption of blood flow to the limbs, pulmonary embolism).
There are probably many thousands of unreported cases. We get growing numbers of reports about this phenomenon from medical staff within hospitals and clinics. The general impression is that hospitals seem to be dealing with a chaos and confusion regarding the way to handle growing numbers of vaccine injured patients while at the same time to keep them out of records. Many doctors in emergency rooms nowadays begin their anamnestic inquiry by the question: “When were you vaccinated?” yet write nothing about it in discharge letters.

 

In light of all the above and the detailed information ahead and for the sake of the good, reliable and advanced medicine, for all people and from the pure intention, we would like to hereby declare the statement that all branches of medicine should agree about: “Once you apply new medication of all sorts to mass people and have insufficient knowledge about its true safety, all adverse effects that follow must be regarded as related to this medication until proven otherwise. This is the only way to obtain the true information, to ensure maximal safety surveillance and to make sure that non-medical motives will have no influence on the process of evaluating and learning the true nature of this medication and its influence on people.”

HOLOCAUST OF THE UNBORN: Babies are DYING because their mothers got “vaccinated” for covid

06November2022 by: https://www.naturalnews.com/2022-11-06-unborn-babies-dying-mothers-fathers-vaccinated-covid.html

This article may contain statements that reflect the opinion of the author

(Natural News) One of the most concerning side effects of Wuhan coronavirus (Covid-19) “vaccines” is that they seem to be preventing reproduction by killing babies still in the womb.

 

Rates of stillbirth, new reports indicate, continue to increase as fully vaccinated mothers fail to deliver their children in growing numbers. As many as 28 out of 29 women, depending on the data source – that statistic comes from Pfizer itself, believe it or not – are experiencing stillborn deliveries in the covid injection era.

 

A hospital in the Fresno, Calif., area circulated an email internally that suggests stillbirths are up big time – 500 percent, in fact – compared to pre-Operation Warp Speed. That email was leaked to the independent media, which is reporting on it while the corporate media ignores it.

 

As far as mainstream news goes, Fauci Flu shots are still the best and greatest thing a person can take to protect against the Chinese Flu. In reality, though, the shots are having a depopulation effect on those who take them. (Related: Earlier this year, it was reported that at least half a million spontaneous abortions have occurred as a result of covid injections.)

Nurse says she heard of two mothers whose babies developed blood clots in the womb

Prior to the release of the shots, stillbirths were relatively rare. At the hospital in question, about one or two occurred every three months or so. Now, dozens of stillbirths are occurring monthly – a substantial increase.

 

The Epoch Times, which first reported on the revelation, reached out to the head nurse who wrote the email to inquire about why she referred to the cases as “demise patients.” She has yet to respond.

 

California Today, which also reported on the leaked email, put together a video segment that you can watch at the RAIR Foundation website.

 

If you are an Epoch Times subscriber, you can also watch a 25-minute video exposé about the leaked email at this link.

 

Leaked Hospital Memo Reveals 500 Percent Rise in Stillbirths [mRNA Covid Vaccine]

 

Epoch has a live chat associated with the video in which one woman claims she suffered not just one but two stillbirths after getting jabbed back in early 2021.

 

“I was a ‘liberal’ and believed my doctors,” this person wrote. “I’m so glad word is getting out about this. Hopefully others can be spared this horrible pain.”

 

Another person mentioned the “Under the Skin” documentary, which discusses the problems sheep who get vaccinated with mRNA shots for brusellosis suffer. Many of the sheep died not long after the experimental drug was injected into them, the film explains.

 

“I am a nurse and I have heard of two mothers whose babies have had blood clots in the womb,” wrote another. “I have NEVER heard of such a thing before. It’s just hearsay, though. I have no actual evidence.”

 

Someone else asked what it is going to take for more people to come to a realization that these shots are dangerous and have no business being injected into people’s bodies based on everything we now know about them.

 

“Herod did the same thing with his massacre of the innocents,” wrote someone else, referring to the famous Bible story about the genocide of all male children two years and younger in the vicinity of Bethlehem, where Jesus Christ was born.

 

“I will repeat one virologist who said, ‘whoever made the virus is satanic, however whoever made the vaccines is 10 times as satanic,’” wrote another person, referring to the two different types of spike proteins in the virus versus the injections.

I think the numbers are really troubling and I don’t think we know the reasons why yet.

What we do know it’s not neonatal Covid – the rates of Covid-19 infection in babies are very low

and deaths from Covid are thankfully very, very small, so this isn’t Covid affecting babies

Covid Scotland: Vaccines ruled out in neonatal deaths spike

https://www.heraldscotland.com/news/23028843.covid-scotland-vaccines-ruled-cause-neonatal-deaths-spike/?ref=rss

PUBLIC health experts ruled out any link between spikes in neonatal deaths and the Covid vaccine

without checking whether any of the infants’ mothers had received the jag during pregnancy.

Experts stressed, no “plausible” link to justify investigating maternal vaccination status.

Public Health Scotland (PHS) said its consultants had given “careful consideration” to the “potential

benefits and harms” of carrying out such as analysis as part of its probe into the tragic deaths of 39 infants,

but concluded against doing so

PHS added A risk that “identifying the vaccination status of the mothers, even at aggregate level,

would result in harm to those individuals and others close to them,

through actual or perceived judgement of the effects of their personal vaccination decision”

Furthermore “the outcomes of such analysis, whilst being uninformative for public health decision making,

had the potential to be used to harm vaccine confidence at this critical time”

PHS response, “We do not have any plans to examine maternal vaccination status, as there is no public health reason to do so”.

We should never ever have had a pandemic preparedness team that did not consider the indirect and long-term effects.

We focussed on the direct effects of excess deaths from covid,

but from the beginning it’s likely the indirect effects will lead to more deaths,

and more morbidity and more economic impacts than Covid deaths itself

What I see is still a focus on the direct effects of Covid

Nobody who is in charge of the NHS, or any of the new health secretaries, are making any noises about it

Vast majority of covid deaths now occurring in the fully jabbed … after Biden and the CDC fraudulently claimed vaccines stop transmission

23November2022 by: https://www.naturalnews.com/2022-11-23-vast-majority-covid-deaths-occurring-fully-jabbed.html

This article may contain statements that reflect the opinion of the author

(Natural News) We thought this day would never come, but the corporate-controlled media – specifically The Washington Postnow admits that the “vast majority of Americans dying from the coronavirus received at least the primary series of the vaccine.”

 

All this time, we have been told that the unvaccinated are responsible for covid deaths. Fake president Joe Biden infamously called it a “pandemic of the unvaccinated,” and yet now we know straight from the horse’s mouth that this was all a lie.

 

The latest data from August 2022 shows that 58 percent of what they are calling covid deaths occur in people who received at least one injection for the Fauci Flu. The more injections a person gets, the higher his or her likelihood of infection or death.

 

“Based on past figures and the current trends, we can reasonably estimate that the number of vaccinated / boosted COVID-19 deaths will only rise,” reports “Techno Fog” on The Reactionary Substack.

 

“In September 2021, the vaccinated accounted for 23% of COVID-19 deaths; in January / February 2022, the vaccinated were 42%.” (Related: Remember when the government of Alberta was caught deleting data showing that a bulk of “covid” deaths at any given time occur in the newly jabbed?)

FDA lied in claiming that covid jabs are >90% effective – effective at what?

That all of this is now being openly admitted is shocking, though not really when considering the fact that the criminals behind this mass genocide continue to walk and will more than likely never face any kind of punishment.

 

They know this, which is why they are allowing their controlled media sources to admit the truth. They are mocking the general public and saying: yes, we are murdering you, and no, there is nothing you can do about it.

 

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) of course played a role in this as well, falsely claiming from the very beginning the Fauci Flu shots are 91 percent and 93 percent “effective,” referring to the Pfizer-BioNTech and Moderna mRNA (messenger RNA) injections, respectively.

 

“At the time of the official approvals, both Pfizer and Moderna hadn’t submitted any type of long-term numbers on effectiveness,” Techno Fog reveals. “Their trials were polluted with the unblinding of participants and their safety studies are ‘ongoing.’”

 

“Now, we’re seeing efficacy numbers plummet within months of vaccination. The pandemic is of the vaccinated. The boosters? They’re to the benefit of the medical establishment and the pharmaceutical companies, as they mask the true problems with the two-shot vaccines.”

 

Despite being almost done with his multi-decade tenure siphoning American taxpayer money while holding the highest-paid seat in the federal government, Tony Fauci continues to this very day to push the shots, falsely claiming that the data “overwhelmingly show the effectiveness of vaccines.”

 

Again, what we want to know is: effective at what? If depopulation was the goal all along then sure — the jabs are very effective. Notice that Fauci has never once stated what, exactly, these shots are effective at doing.

 

There is an almost zero chance that Fauci or anyone else involved in perpetrating this global hoax will ever be held accountable, at least in the current age. Perhaps they will eventually face some kind of supernatural judgment seat as some religions believe.

 

“None of this is due to failure or incompetence,” pointed out a commenter about the scamdemic. “It is all intentional and by design.”

 

“This is Little Mengele’s parting death gift to us from him and his fellow Big Pharma murderers,” wrote another about Fauci’s outgoing statements about how covid shots are backed by “data.”

HOLOCAUST: UK government confirms 1 in 310 boosted individuals died within 48 days of vaccination

11November2022 by: https://www.naturalnews.com/2022-11-11-uk-1-in-310-boosted-individuals-died.html

This article may contain statements that reflect the opinion of the author

(Natural News) The national statistical institute of the United Kingdom — the Office for National Statistics (ONS) — has published horrific data on those who took the covid-19 booster shots. The data shows that 1 in 310 boosted individuals DIED within 48 days of vaccination. The covid-19 vaccines do not prevent infection, transmission, nor do they prevent death. Not only has this mRNA technology failed and caused an astronomical amount of debilitating side effects in the population, but it also poses a serious threat to the survival of the human race.

Boosted individuals dying off at horrifying rate in the UK

The data set, published on September 8, 2022, is titled, “Characteristics associated with the risk of death involving coronavirus (COVID-19) among people receiving a booster vaccination.” In Table 1, the data shows that 62,801 individuals who received a booster shot by December 31, 2021 actually DIED. The average time between receiving a booster jab and losing one’s life was approximately 7 weeks or (48 days).

 

Individuals who take just three doses of the Pfizer and Moderna covid-19 vaccines are causing excessive amounts of inflammation in their body, via unpredictable, runaway transcription of spike proteins in their cells. The vaccine-compliant are priming themselves for an early death, either through immune depletion or cardiovascular failure, among other serious health issues. An astronomical number of people are dying within a month and a half of getting vaccinated. News stories about young people dying “suddenly and unexpectedly” have exploded around the globe.

 

This is the same series of vaccines that the CDC just added to their ever-expanding childhood vaccine schedule. While Europe has made strides to stop covid-19 vaccination of children, these depopulation vaccines will soon be mandated on schoolchildren in states like California, New York, and Illinois. These deadly jabs are set to be mandated on children in these states specifically, because the governors in these failed states promised to do so, and the people of these states were unable, or hopelessly unwilling, to vote these lawless administrations out of office.

Vaccinated populations account for 90% of covid-19 deaths now

Out of the 62,801 post-booster deaths, a shocking 4,781 were determined to be from covid-19. Breakthrough infections after vaccination are not only common, but they are sometimes deadly and lead to mass fatalities. Every public figure who concertedly advertised “mild” covid-19 illness after vaccination seriously misled the public. The risk of death after covid-19 vaccination is now greater than if there was no vaccine at all.

 

Another data set from ONS compares the vaccinated population with the unvaccinated population. Between January 1, 2022 and May 31, 2022, the vaccinated population accounted for 9 of every 10 covid-19 fatalities! Most of the deaths (91%) were among individuals who were triple and / or quadruple vaccinated. As a matter of fact, mortality rates per 100,000 people are lower in every single unvaccinated age group throughout England. The politicians who promoted vaccines were wrong, and no amnesty should be granted. The authoritarians who locked populations down and destroyed lives; the abusers who threatened the unvaccinated and blamed them for mass death; THEY should be held accountable.

 

The authoritarian governments that bribed citizens and rolled out covid-19 vaccines in a hostile, coercive, and discriminatory manner are responsible for human rights abuses and cold, cruel democide. This should be the topic of concern in all political circles — locally, state-wide, and nationally. Any political leader, government official, or media pundit who pushed the covid-19 vaccine into existence and enforced mandates should be interrogated, and in many cases, charged with crimes. These investigations should most definitely include the “father of the vaccine” himself — Donald J. Trump, and it should include the head of the government’s “coronavirus task force” — Dr. Anthony Fauci. No one should be above the law.

Medical System Struggles with How to Treat Heart Disease Caused by COVID Vaccines

JAHA vaccine triggered myocarditis

JAHA vaccine triggered myocarditis

by Brian Shilhavy
Editor, Health Impact News 30October2022  https://healthimpactnews.com/2022/medical-system-struggles-with-how-to-treat-heart-disease-caused-by-covid-vaccines/

One of the most prestigious medical journals dealing with heart disease, the Journal of the American Heart Association (JAHA), has published two new articles this month dealing with how to detect and treat COVID-19 vaccine induced heart disease (myocarditis, pericarditis, and myopericarditis). They are:

Vaccine‐Triggered Acute Autoimmune Myocarditis: Defining, Detecting, and Managing an Apparently Novel Condition

Myocarditis After COVID‐19 Vaccination in Pediatrics: A Proposed Pathway for Triage and Treatment

Medical journals are generally not written for the public, but for doctors and other medical professionals, so you will not hear about this in the corporate news which is heavily sponsored by the drug companies who produce the COVID vaccines, and would not want the general public to have this information.

 

The JAHA published studies admit to a difficult situation in treating what they refer to as a “novel” cardiac disease that is caused by COVID-19 vaccines without fueling “vaccine hesitancy” which would reduce the number of people getting COVID-19 vaccines, which of course they are obligated to believe are necessary to fight the COVID-19 “virus” disease.

 

To admit otherwise, would be to admit these vaccines are a total scam and unnecessarily killing and maiming people, a criminal offense.

Among the seemingly endless “unknown‐unknowns” that the COVID era has foisted on policy makers, public health, health care providers, researchers, and the public is the apparently novel cardiac disease identified in this issue of the Journal of the American Heart Association (JAHA) as ”myocarditis after COVID‐19 vaccination,” elsewhere as ”postvaccine myocarditis,” and perhaps in the future along the lines of ”vaccine‐triggered, self‐limiting, acute autoimmune myocarditis.” This potentially serious complication has been associated with serious harm, arguably most prominently through promotion of vaccine hesitancy, another complex mechanism underlying COVID19‐mediated harm. (Source.)

So the fact that JAHA even has to address this issue and give guidance to medical providers in how to detect and treat these new “novel”  vaccine-induced cardiac diseases, proves that these vaccines cause harm, especially among young males.

 

The fact that JAHA is even addressing this issue, is truly astounding, because they are basically admitting that this is a very real and very serious problem, and that they have been totally unprepared on how to detect and treat these vaccine-induced cases of heart disease.

 

They try to minimize the true danger by stating that those who have been detected with these forms of heart disease have mostly been treated and sent home with no evidence of continuing heart problems.

Despite the wide variation in management, which remains provider and center‐specific, to date, the overwhelming majority of these patients have recovered clinically and have been discharged home within 10 days or less with no residual echocardiographic evidence of significant cardiac dysfunction.

But here’s the elephant in the room nobody wants to address: NOBODY knows what the long-term effects are from these COVID-19 vaccine-induced heart problems.

These patients are now undergoing close outpatient cardiology follow‐up and testing to understand if there are significant long‐lasting sequelae. The CDC is also investigating the long‐term effects of COVID‐19 vaccination associated myocarditis through surveys of patients and healthcare providers. (Source.)

To even get studies like this published in the prestigious medical journals, the authors have to parrot the CDC mantra that all these cases are “rare.” But the fact that they have to address the issues of vaccine-induced heart disease and how to detect and treat them, contradicts the belief that these cases are “rare.”

 

Since I am not constrained by Big Pharma funding or employment, I am going to share data that the Government has collected in their Vaccine Adverse Events Reporting System (VAERS) that strongly suggests these cases are not rare, but epidemic. This is the information that seldom appears in these studies, and NEVER appears in the corporate media.

 

I took the three forms of heart disease that JAHA referenced, which are myocarditis, pericarditis, and myopericarditis, and searched for these three forms in VAERS following COVID-19 vaccines. The search found almost 25,000 cases, with 381 deaths, 1,145 permanent disabilities, over 5000 ER visits, and nearly 13,000 hospitalizations. (Source.)

 

VAERS carditis cases 2022.10.21

VAERS carditis cases 2022.10.21

By contrast, using the exact same search terms for all FDA-approved vaccines for the previous 30+ years before the COVID shots were given emergency use authorization in December of 2020, we get the following results (source):

VAERS Carditis 30 years record

VAERS Carditis 30 years record

So for 30 years of previous vaccine history 86 deaths linked to these three forms of heart disease were reported to VAERS, or less than 3 per year, but for just ONE year, the year 2021, there were 244. (Source.)

 

That’s a 8,411% increase of deaths due to heart disease following the experimental COVID-19 vaccines compared to ALL vaccines the previous 30 years.

That is NOT “RARE!”

Keep in mind that it is estimated that less than 1% of all vaccine injuries are reported to VAERS. (Source.)

 

This is a crime where people should prosecuted, tried, and if convicted publicly executed. Because if this data was shared with the public, most people would undoubtedly prefer to risk getting COVID than risk dying or being disabled due to heart disease, especially when it comes to children and young adults.

 

But that would hurt vaccine sales, and so most of the public remains ignorant on the actual data.

Study finds 84% increase in incidence of cardiac-related DEATH among men under 40 following mRNA vaccination

13October2022 by:
https://www.naturalnews.com/2022-10-13-men-cardiac-related-death-after-mrna-vaccination.html

This article may contain statements that reflect the opinion of the author

(Natural News) The Florida Department of Health (FDOH) has found that men under 40 are at high risk of experiencing cardiac-related death after taking the mRNA Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccines.

 

According to a statewide study headed by Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph A. Ladapo, there was an 84 percent increase in the relative incidence of cardiac-related deaths among males aged 18 to 39 within 28 days following mRNA vaccination. The study investigated vaccinated Florida residents aged 18 and older.

 

Given the high level of global immunity to COVID-19, the FDOH said any supposed benefits to getting men between 18 to 39 vaccinated with mRNA vaccines “is likely outweighed by this abnormally high risk of cardiac-related death among men in this age group.”

 

The results of this study were announced right before the surgeon general made an official recommendation for men aged 18 to 39 against getting mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.

 

“Those with preexisting cardiac conditions, such as myocarditis and pericarditis, should take particular caution when making this decision,” said the office in its statement.

 

This statement also reaffirmed the FDOH’s previous guidance recommending COVID-19 vaccination for healthy children and adolescents between the ages of five and 17. It added a new recommendation against vaccination for infants and children under five years old.

 

“Far less attention has been paid to safety and the concerns of many individuals have been dismissed – these are important findings that should be communicated to Floridians,” said Ladapo in his own statement, referring to the analysis. (Related: Ben Armstrong lauds Florida Surgeon General Dr. Joseph Ladapo, lawyer Thomas Renz for exposing flaws of COVID-19 vaccines.)

 

Twitter preventing Ladapo from sharing results of crucial vaccine study

During an interview with Tucker Carlson’s Fox News program “Tucker Carlson Tonight,” Ladapo expressed concerns after Twitter refused to allow him to share the study identifying cardiac-related risks associated with the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.

 

“It’s an enormous deal,” Ladapo told Carlson. “If it had been known two years ago or so that this vaccine would increase cardiac deaths in young men by 84 percent, would they have approved it? The obvious answer is no.”

 

When asked about why Florida is the only state that has pursued a study examining the effects of the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines, Ladapo noted that he sees it as “a reflection of how many things have been so backward during the pandemic.”

 

“You would never give something to someone who was young and healthy and increase their risk of dying from sudden cardiac death by 84 percent,” said Ladapo. “But the response is, ‘Well, you know, COVID is pretty bad.’ Yes, COVID can be terrible, but we don’t give people medications that kill them. So there’s been so much confusion. But yes, that was our finding and it was a surprise. But that’s what the numbers show.”

 

In a statement, Twitter claimed that Ladapo’s tweets referencing the study violated the company’s “current misleading information policy,” which covers “synthetic and manipulated media, COVID-19 and civic integrity.”

 

“If we determine a Tweet contains misleading or disputed information per our policies that could lead to harm, we may add a label to the content to provide context and additional information,” said the company.

Thai study: Nearly 3 in 10 children experience HEART COMPLICATIONS after getting vaccinated

24August2022 by:
https://www.naturalnews.com/2022-08-24-thai-study-children-experience-heart-complications-vaccinated.html

This article may contain statements that reflect the opinion of the author

(Natural News) A study from Thailand found that at least 29 percent of children who received Pfizer’s mRNA Wuhan coronavirus (COVID-19) vaccine experienced potentially life-threatening heart complications.

 

The study was conducted primarily by researchers from the Mahidol University in Bangkok, with the assistance of several other researchers from different hospitals in the capital. It studied 301 students from two schools, all between the ages of 13 and 18.

 

All of the students were partially vaccinated, having received a dose of Pfizer’s mRNA COVID-19 vaccine. Forty-four of the participants had underlying health conditions, such as allergic rhinitis, asthma, G6PD deficiency and thalassemia trait. (Related: Study finds 29% of teenagers develop heart problems following second dose of Pfizer’s mRNA COVID-19 vaccine.)

 

Researchers conducted laboratory tests to establish a baseline, and then followed up with the students at intervals of three, seven and 14 days after they receive the second dose of the COVID-19 vaccine.

 

The researchers found that 29.24 percent of the study participants – or 88 of the 301 students – experienced cardiovascular incidents following vaccination, including heart palpitations, chest pains, shortness of breath, tachycardia and myopericarditis.

 

Fifty-four students had abnormal electrocardiogram results. Six students experienced mitral valve prolapses. Another six had high blood pressure and seven were diagnosed with heart inflammation.

 

Two of the children had to be hospitalized, with one of them being admitted to an intensive care unit.

 

The conclusion of the researchers was particularly mild, considering the study’s findings. They believe that, if adolescents have to be vaccinated, they should at least be monitored for side effects, especially if they receive the mRNA COVID-19 vaccines.

 

Study once again proves vaccines shouldn’t be given to children

Medical professionals who reacted to the Thai study all believe that it provides more evidence proving that children should not be given COVID-19 vaccines.

 

“Any form of heart damage in young persons is concerning since the long-term risks of heart failure and sudden death with exercise are unknown,” noted Dr. Peter McCullough, a cardiologist and the chief medical adviser for the Truth for Health Foundation. “This is one of [about] 200 published papers demonstrating the risks of COVID-19 vaccination far outweigh any theoretical benefit.”

 

Dr. Anish Koka, another cardiologist, said the results of the new study “are not reassuring.” He also criticized the study authors for characterizing some of the heart conditions the children experienced, such as myopericarditis, as “mild.”

 

At the very least, Koka noted, the study “helps fill in some of the data void so parents and their doctors can be better informed when discussing the risks and benefits of the vaccines.”

 

Del Bigtree and Jefferey Jaxen, on an episode of “The Highwire,” noted that American public health institutions continue to ignore the evidence.

 

“Does someone want to actually put a pause button out and say, ‘Hold on a second, this doesn’t look so good?’ They’re literally ignoring that,” said Bigtree.

 

“This is the state of science in the United States, and this is why we may be in some real trouble until this changes,” said Jaxen. ”

People who Lost legs from the Covid Vax

A List Of People Who Had Their Leg Amputated Shortly After Receiving COVID-19 Vaccine

by The COVID World post date: November 25th, 2021 https://thecovidworld.com/a-list-of-people-who-had-their-leg-amputated-after-receiving-covid-19-vaccine/

As the vaccination train rolls on, tales of horrifying side effects continue to pile up. The mainstream media reports only on these cases in isolation, if at all, deliberately ignoring the wider pattern of serious blood clots directly linked to vaccination. At this point, the evidence seems deniable only when these cases are not looked at together as a group.

 

Here is a list of people from around the world that, in just the last few weeks and months, have had their leg amputated as a result of the COVID-19 vaccine.


Dave Mears: Former Taekwondo World Champion’s Leg “Exploded” 1 Month After Receiving AstraZeneca Vaccine

Former taekwondo world champion Dave Mears had his left leg amputated just a month after receiving the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine, which caused his leg to “explode”.

 

Mears received the shot on March 4th and immediately developed flu-like symptoms and a sky-high temperature. A month later, he was hospitalized for a leg infection that was so bad that his leg ‘exploded’ at Peterborough City Hospital, showering blood everywhere.

 

Doctors had no choice but to amputate his left leg above the knee.

“There was blood everywhere. It was terrifying. I had the operation and they amputated the leg and I lost five units of blood. It was pretty serious and I was very poorly after that.”

39-year-old Cicera Santos from Brazil had to have her left leg amputated due to blood clots just a week after getting the Pfizer COVID-19 vaccine.

 

Santos took the shot on August 25th and was hospitalized four days later with venous thrombosis in her left leg. The thrombosis was so severe that doctors had no other option but to amputate her leg below the knee.

 

The mother-of-two said after the amputation:

“I was affected by venous thrombosis in my left leg just a week after the vaccine.

I was a healthy person before this and I never had problems with my blood circulation.”

Viennese construction worker Goran had to have his right leg amputated due to blood clots just 3 weeks after receiving his first AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.

 

Goran had developed severe pain in his leg and “spat blood once or twice a day”. By March 13th, the pain in his leg got so bad his wife called an ambulance.

 

The builder of more than 30 years said:

“I’ve never felt such pain in my whole life. My leg was white, blue and black.”

He had to have three surgeries in one week and was put in an induced coma. When he awoke, doctors told him that his lower leg had been amputated.

“I will never forget that pain when I woke up for the rest of my life.”

56-year-old Alex Mitchell lost his leg just 2 weeks after receiving the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine on March 20th.

 

Mitchell, from Glasgow Scotland, was hospitalized on April 4th after collapsing at home. He had developed blood clots in his lower abdomen and in both legs which forced surgeons to remove his left leg above the knee.

“The doctors were speaking to consultants all around the world about me, because it was unheard of for someone with this level of clotting to survive.”

Despite losing his leg, Mitchell was still positive about the vaccine and did not want to ‘discourage’ others from taking the shot.

“I had the vaccine because I want things to go back to normal as soon as possible and the only way we can do this is by being vaccinated. I wouldn’t want to discourage people from having the Covid jab.

 

From what they know, what happened to me is rare. It’s only going to affect maybe one or two people, so don’t let it put you off.”

Australian Harold Molle had to have his left leg amputated because of blood clots just three days after his second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine.

Molle said about the incident:

“It was excruciating pain.

It’s going to cost me now, I’ve got to get an artificial leg and a wheelchair.”

Despite losing his leg, he too spoke positively about the vaccine.

“The vaccine worked because it saved me in the hospital because I caught COVID there, and if I didn’t have the vaccine they said I would have most probably got real sick.”

Thai student Ketsiri Kongkaew had to have her leg surgically removed just weeks after receiving the AstraZeneca COVID-19 vaccine.

 

The 20-year-old, who had received her shot on August 13th, immediately developed a high temperature and flu-like symptoms and was hospitalized a week later for severe blood clots in her left leg which gave doctors at Krabi Hospital no other option but to surgically remove her leg.

 

Her grandmother, Harlia Kongkaew, said about the injury:

“She [Ketsiri] was transferred to Surat Thani Hospital for an X-ray where doctors said that there was a blockage in the artery and that she had to be sent to Krabi Hospital for emergency surgery. That’s when her left leg got amputated above the knee.

This was a result of the vaccine. She never had any diseases before this.”

The student initially seemed to recover from her operation and was put on blood thinners, which caused a brain haemorrage just two months later. Doctors performed emergency surgery but Ketsiri died after a few days.

Senator Jeanine Calkin had to have her right leg amputated because of a blood clot that had developed shortly after receiving the COVID-19 vaccine.

 

Calkin, who is a senator for the state of Rhode Island, said after the amputation:

“Doctors discovered that I had an infection, which had led to blood clots. The clotting had blocked the flow of blood to my legs. The doctors determined that to save my life, they needed to amputate my right leg, which they did on Friday.”

Despite the clot developing shortly after receiving the jab, Calkin stated that she does not believe it was related to the vaccine.

Fauci Funded ‘Cruel’ Puppy Experiments Where Sand Flies ‘Eat Them Alive’; Vocal Cords Severed

by Tyler Durden 24October2021 – https://www.zerohedge.com/medical/fauci-funded-cruel-puppy-experiments-where-sand-flies-eat-them-alive-vocal-cords-severed

While recent attention has been focused on Dr. Anthony Fauci’s National Institutes of Health (NIH) funding the genetic manipulation of bat coronaviruses in the same town as the bat coronavirus pandemic emerged, a bipartisan group of lawmakers have demanded answers over ‘sick’ experiments on drugged puppies, according to The Hill.

 

“Our investigators show that Fauci’s NIH division shipped part of a $375,800 grant to a lab in Tunisia to drug beagles and lock their heads in mesh cages filled with hungry sand flies so that the insects could eat them alive,” writes nonprofit organization the White Coat Waste Project. “They also locked beagles alone in cages in the desert overnight for nine consecutive nights to use them as bait to attract infectious sand flies.”

As The Hill‘s Christian Spencer writes:

 

The White Coat Waste Project, the nonprofit organization that first pointed out that U.S. taxpayers were being used to fund the controversial Wuhan Institute of Virology, have now turned its sights on Anthony Fauci on another animal-testing-related matter — infecting dozens of beagles with disease-causing parasites to test an experimental drug on them.

 

House members, most of whom are Republicans, want Fauci to explain himself in response to allegations brought on by the White Coat Waste Project that involve drugging puppies.

 

According to the White Coat Waste Project, the Food and Drug Administration does not require drugs to be tested on dogs, so the group is asking why the need for such testing.

 

White Coat Waste claims that 44 beagle puppies were used in a Tunisia, North Africa, laboratory, and some of the dogs had their vocal cords removed, allegedly so scientists could work without incessant barking. -The Hill

 

The concerned lawmakers are led by Rep. Nancy Mace (R-SC), who said in a letter to the NIH that cordectomies are “cruel” and a “reprehensible misuse of taxpayer funds.” Mace is joined by reps Cindy Axne (D-Iowa), Cliff Bentz (R-Ore.), Steve Cohen (D-Tenn.), Rick Crawford (R-Ark.), Brian Fitzpatrick (R-Pa.), Scott Franklin (R-Fla.), Andrew Garbarino (R-N.Y.), Carlos Gimenez (R-Fla.), Jimmy Gomez (D-Calif.), Josh Gottheimer (D-N.J.), Fred Keller (R-Pa.), Ted Lieu (D-Calif.), Lisa McClain (R-Mich.), Nicole Malliotakis (R-N.Y.), Brian Mast (R-Fla.), Scott Perry (R-Pa.), Bill Posey (R-Fla.), Mike Quigley (D-Ill.), Lucille Roybal-Allard (D-Calif.), Maria E. Salazar (R-Fla.), Terri Sewell (D-Ala.), Daniel Webster (R-Fla.) and Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-D.C.) via The Hill.
Hilariously, Snopes lists this story as “mixture” because “it is unclear whether Dr. Anthony Fauci, director of the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) at NIH, personally approved the project.
So the buck stops wherever…

How will Fauci spin this?

IT GETS WORSE: Fauci funded inhumane medical experimentation on minority AIDS orphans in NYC

28October2021 by: https://www.naturalnews.com/2021-10-28-fauci-funded-inhumane-medical-experimentation-aids-orphans.html

 

Dr. Anthony Fauci

Dr. Anthony Fauci

(Natural News) After it was revealed that Tony Fauci sent American taxpayer dollars to an animal abuse operation that tortured and murdered dogs, it has since come to light that Fauci did much the same thing to human AIDS orphans in New York City back in the early 2000s as well.

 

Circulating photos include one depicting a young black boy being experimented on at a NYC hospital. The boy shown was one of hundreds that Fauci exploited as part of a Tuskegee-style government-Big Pharma experiment that led to at least 25 minor deaths during the study, another 55 deaths after the fact in foster care, and hundreds more deaths after that.

 

“In 2005, the city of New York hired the VERA Institute to form a final report on the drug trials,” it was reported. “VERA was given no access to medical records for any of the children used in trials. Their report was published in 2008.”

 

“They reported that twenty-five children died during the drug studies, that an additional fifty-five children died following the studies (in foster care), and, according to Tim Ross, Director of the Child Welfare program at VERA (as of 2009), 29% of the remaining 417 children who were used in drug studies had died (out of a total 532 children that are admitted to have been used).”

Nobody likes Fauci except the mainstream media

As always, no payment or compensation was given to any of the children who were used in the trials, nor to their parents. They were mere fodder for Fauci’s mad scientist “research,” which continues to this very day as no president has yet had the guts or gall to get rid of him.

 

Fortunately, there are brave souls not in government who are coming forward to tell all about what the National Institute of Health (NIH) has been doing for decades, committing serious crimes against humanity.

 

The following video features an Incarnation Children’s Center (ICC) interview between Liz Brown and Mimi Pascual that talks all about this in greater depth. It starts around the 24:30 mark where key points of the interview occur:

Dr. Tony Fauci-funded research at the New York City Incarnation Children’s Center (ICC) interview with Lizz Brown and Mimi Pascual

Numerous documents and interviews with children and childcare workers at ICC who participated in the Fauci-funded research are speaking out about the horrors they witnessed and contributed to, not realizing fully what they were doing until the damaging effects and deaths appeared after it was completed.

 

Fauci, of course, more than likely knew fully about the risks involved. To him, though, human life is meaningless. Its only worth is to be experimented on for “research” purposes.

 

Back then, only a few hundred children were affected by Fauci’s mad scientism. Today, the entire world is being injected with experimental poisons, the full effects of which have yet to fully manifest.

 

“Dr. Fauci is Dr. Frankenstein and Dr. Moreau into one,” joked one commenter at The Gateway Pundit.
“More like Dr. Mengele,” responded another.

 

“One might ask … ‘Why now? Why is Fauci being exposed and incriminated now?’” speculated another. “Could it be he is no longer a trusted and valuable tool for the cabal in power?”

 

“This … ‘man’ … has been scum since the introduction of HIV back in the ’80s. The disease was politicized back then … and oh! Lookie here … this ‘new’ ‘not-gain-of-function-disease’ … that he has had a direct hand in … has been … politicized, too …”

 

Another called out National Geographic for launching a ridiculous “documentary” portraying Fauci as some kind of hero for humanity rather than the demented monster that he truly is.

 

“This is all coming back to light because this is one of the reasons that black people in New York City refuse to take the jab,” noted another.

Why Fauci and the global cabal insist your children be injected for ‘protection’ against a disease that poses no threat to their health

by Leo Hohmann [Source: https://leohohmann.com/2021/10/26/why-fauci-and-the-global-cabal-insist-your-children-be-injected-for-protection-against-a-disease-that-poses-no-threat-to-their-health/]
26October2021 https://www.israpundit.org/why-fauci-and-the-global-cabal-insist-your-children-be-injected-for-protection-against-a-disease-that-poses-no-threat-to-their-health/

 

 

Ronald Reagan once said, “Don’t be afraid to see what you see.”

 

He made the statement in his farewell address on Jan. 11, 1989. He was giving advice on how U.S. foreign policy should view the former Soviet Union as it tried to shed its image as a brutal totalitarian society.

 

What Reagan was trying to say is that if it still looks like communism, then it probably is. Don’t pay attention to what they call it. Pay attention to how it looks, how it feels to those living under the regime.

 

Freedom-loving citizens of America, Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Israel and Canada would do well to heed Reagan’s advice and apply it today.

 

The label on the political party in power may say “Democrat” or “Republican” but what’s happening all around you? If you see friends and relatives in what’s supposed to be a free society being fired from their jobs – critical jobs like nurses, doctors, firefighters, cops, soldiers and truck drivers – because they won’t concede to having an unknown experimental substance injected into their bodies, then you should not hesitate to take this at face value.

 

Don’t brush it aside as some temporary anomaly.

 

You’ve heard it all by now from your friends and family.

 

“Don’t get so carried away.”

 

“Why are you always so negative?”

 

“Calm down. Things will change when the [fill in the party of your choice] take over in the next election.”

 

But things never do seem to change.

 

Call it what it is: Authoritarianism. Totalitarianism. Fascism. Communism. Dictatorship. You might not have the perfect adjective, but you know when something isn’t right. It doesn’t look right. It doesn’t feel right.

 

We are living in a critical juncture in history. A relatively small cadre of very wealthy, very powerful elites are pushing us hard to accept a new system of corporate communism, actually more like fascism, in which an insanely bloated government has teamed up with big business to force the people to accept an agenda that many feel uncomfortable with.

 

These elites, with their buddies in the corporate media, use fear-basedpropaganda to stir up hatred for the non-compliant, while pressuring everyone – man, woman and child – to submit to the “new normal.”

 

Get this injection or face an unthinkable future on the fringes of society. You will be relegated to a permanent underclass, unfit for work, travel or even being able to buy or sell where the respectable people gather.

 

They are “losing patience,” as Biden announced in his Sept. 9 order for national injection mandates, with we, the non-compliant ones.

 

That’s not what free societies look like. Not even close. If you don’t have the right to choose what goes into your body under threat of being deemed an untouchable social and economic outcast, then you don’t have the right to choose anything. Once you accept the premise that your employer or the government has that level of control over your life, things can only go downhill from there.

 

But the message coming from Big Tech, Big Pharma, Big Religion and Big Government is simple and direct – conform or get left behind.

 

Pope Francis and powerful evangelical leaders such as Franklin Graham are also on board with this new global order, rebranded by the World Economic Forum as the Great Reset. So are the most important political leaders of both parties. In fact, any leader of people who pushes the idea of mandated universal injections is on board with the reset of humanity and transhumanism, whether they realize it or not.

 

I mean what I said: ANY LEADER who pushes the injections as “safe and effective” is not going to be on your side when it matters most. Ditch them now.

 

Why do I say that? Because these injections hold the key to transforming humanity, genetically re-engineering the human species into something the transhumanists call Humanity 2.0.

 

Does that mean the initial shots for the three gene-based injections from Pfizer, Moderna and Johnson & Johnson will turn you into something irreversibly anti-human or anti-God?

 

I am not qualified to answer that question, but at the very least the pressure to receive regular Covid shots under threat of losing your job and your freedom of movement opens up a massive socio-economic thoroughfare for those who would misuse the new gene-based technology for nefarious purposes.

 

And if we look at the track record of those pushing the hardest for these shots, it’s clear we are talking about people who have not earned our trust. They do not operate under the same ethical standards as we normies.

 

So let’s look at the goals of the biomedical industry in their own words.

 

The Human Genome Project was launched by the U.S. government in 1990 and completed 13 years later on April 14, 2003 – at this point scientists had mapped out the sequence of all 3.2 billion nucleotide bases (the equivalent of 3.2 billion letters of information).

 

Since the Human Genome Project’s completion in 2003, the focus turned from discovering the DNA sequences to analyzing them and formulating ways to edit and improve the genetic makeup of all living things.

 

But the arrogance of modern science does not stop there.

 

Scientists have for the last decade or so been conducting experiments to not only genetically re-engineer what it means to be human but to digitize and store the DNA information they are capturing from animals and human beings.

 

Note the official logo of the Human Genome Project. It is very instructive as to its all-inclusive goals for the future of humanity.

The widespread PCR testing kicked off during the Covid scare serves nicely the purposes of DNA data collection.

 

Patrick Wood, one of the most respected researchers on the modern technocracy and transhumanism movements, has authored an article, Global Blueprint Exposed: The Takeover of all Genetic Material on Earth, tying together the strands of a monstrous global power grab being carried out under the cover of a health emergency.

 

Wood traces the origins of today’s globalist push for a Great Reset of human civilization to the beginning stages of the international biodiversity movement, which started in 1987 with the publication of Our Common Future, also known as The Brundtland Report, a U.N.-commissioned study named after its chairman, Gro Harlem Brundtland. The ideas contained in this study were reflected in the 1992 United Nations Convention on Biodiversity held in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, around the same time that the U.N. was working on its massive undertaking, Agenda 21.

 

Once he “learned what to look for,” Wood said it started popping up everywhere he looked, starting with Our Common Future, which states:

 

“The diversity of species is necessary for the normal functioning of ecosystems and the biosphere as a whole. The genetic material in wild species contributes billions of dollars yearly to the world economy in the form of improved crop species, new drugs and medicines, and draw materials for industry.”  (emphasis added)

 

The specific development of biodiversity is seen in Chapter 6, Species and Ecosystems: Resources for Development:

 

“Species and their genetic materials promise to play an expanding role in development, and a powerful economic rationale is emerging to bolster the ethical, aesthetic, and scientific case for preserving them. The genetic variability and germplasm material of species make contributions to agriculture, medicine, and industry worth many billions of dollars per year… If nations can ensure the survival of species, the world can look forward to new and improved foods, new drugs and  medicines, and new raw materials for industry.”

 

Further on, Brundtland states:

 

“Vast stocks of biological diversity are in danger of disappearing just as science is leaning how to exploit genetic variability through the advances of genetic engineering… It would be grim irony indeed if just as new genetic engineering techniques begin to let us peer into life’s diversity and use genes more efficiently to better human conditions, we looked and found this treasure sadly depleted.“

 

Wood has cracked the biomedical word code. When they use the word “biodiversity” they mean “genetic resources.”

 

“Genes are something to be exploited and used more efficiently than they are used in their natural state,” he explains.

 

The keys to understanding where these global predators are taking us were “hiding all these years in plain sight and in plain English,” Wood told me. “It’s inconceivable to me that this has not been uncovered before, that this connection to the Convention on Biodiversity has not been reported. This certainly explains why biotech and Big Pharma are holding the entire world hostage over this pandemic considering that both the virus and the injection are genetically engineered.”

 

This connection went undiscovered until now because we the people did not dig deep enough into those globalist documents and take them seriously. And those who did inspect the documents found that the public did not want to believe what was in them.  They were “afraid to see what they might see,” as Reagan warned. It was easier to write us off as wingnuts and wearers of tinfoil hats.

 

There were hints, though, even in the 1990s, to what was truly being planned for the future.

 

Wood cites one such nugget he mined from the 1994 book, The Earth Brokers, which called out the real agenda of the burgeoning biodiversity movement coming out of the U.N. and Agenda 21. The authors write on page 171:

 

“Neither Brundtland, nor the secretariat, nor the governments drafted a plan to examine the pitfalls of free trade and industrial development. Instead, they wrote up a convention on how to ‘develop’ the use of biodiversity through patents and biotechnology.”

 

Meanwhile, advances in the development of gene editing and the digitization of human DNA has taken off at rocket speed since these ideas about “exploiting” bio-genetic material were first put forth in dry academic papers during 1980s.

 

I believe these scientific advances have now crossed an important line in the spiritual realm, the God realm, where no man has the right to tread.

 

It should be obvious by now that the virus led to the need for a “vaccine” and the “vaccine” led to the idea of digital health passports, which contain a scannable QR Code on a cellphone app.

 

Getting people to accept the digital passports is the key to the globalists’ plan to digitize all of human life by gradually adding more personally identifiable information to the app along with your banking and financial-transaction data.

 

They have to get this ready for people to accept the new digital money system based on blockchain technology. More than 65 central banks worldwide are in various stages of preparing to launch new digital currencies as a replacement for cash.

 

The injections have been sold as just an ordinary “vaccine” which just happen to require continuous “booster shots” to remain effective. That’s a deception. In fact, the shots represent mankind’s initial foray into universal gene editing that will offer endless opportunities for later edits through the continuous boosters.

 

That’s why the corporate media and its billionaire-backed “fact checkers” went bonkers right from the start, in 2020, as soon as anyone pointed out the obvious, that these injections are not like any previous vaccines, that they actually do change your genetic coding, instructing your body to artificially create a toxic spike protein and then deliver that toxin to cells throughout your body.

 

Dr. Tal Zaks, the chief medical officer of Moderna, admitted this in a 2017 TED Talk, before Covid and before it became forbidden to point out the truth about the mRNA technology, which was fully developed already in 2017 as a potential treatment for cancer but still lacked FDA approval. “We have hacked the software of life,” Zaks said.

 

Moderna explained basic structure of the mRNA technology on its website, likening it to “a computer operating system.” Your body is the hardware and the mRNA injection is the software. Once installed, the biopharma industry can “plug and play” any future update it deems you to be in need of. See screenshot from Moderna website below.

 

Moderna explained basic structure of the mRNA technology

Moderna explained basic structure of the mRNA technology

What does this all mean and where is it heading?

 

These injections represent the final frontier of man playing God and will lead to something so evil that God will have no choice but to destroy those responsible. How or when that destruction takes place, no one knows, but you can count on a great reckoning at some point.

 

These power hungry elites in the government, the corporations and many of the churches have no respect for the individual to make choices for himself or herself. They now claim ownership over your body, meaning they can dictate what goes into it. There’s no more hiding behind obscure U.N. documents. They have outted themselves as cruel, anti-human taskmasters.

 

Did Bill Gates care that his polio vaccines were killing and paralyzing thousands of Indian children before the Indian government finally put an end to the experiment? Not in the least.

 

These elites see humanity as their personal playground for experimentation.

 

Dr. Anthony Fauci’s division of the NIH funded a barbaric experiment at the University of Pittsburgh that involved grafting the scalps of 5-month aborted babies onto “humanized” mice and rats. He funded another study at a North African lab in Tunisia in which 44 Beagle puppies were infected with disease-causing parasites, after which some had their vocal chords removed so scientists could work on them without having to endure their incessant barking as they died slow, painful deaths.

 

This is the same Dr. Fauci who parents are being asked to trust for advice regarding the vaccination of their children. He appears daily in the big corporate media outlets making it his top priority to deceive parents into offering up their children to the Covid-vaccine experiment. He says he wants every child injected by the end of the year with his gene-altering “vaccine,” despite the data showing children under 18 have a 99.998 percent statistical chance of surviving Covid. He’s making the rounds on all the major media spreading lies about the dangers of Covid to children and how safe and effective the experimental mRNA serum will be for kids ages 5 to 11.

 

Is this the type of man you want to trust with decisions about your child’s health?

 

He is not the only one up to his neck in the drive to force-feed the new gene-editing experimentations under the cover of “vaccines.”

 

Dr. Richard Besser, a pediatrician and former acting director of the CDC, told CNN on Oct. 22 that U.S. pediatricians will “push much harder” for the Covid vaccines in children than in most other countries. The injections for kids ages 5 to 11 will be rolled out as soon as Nov. 1 and the pressure for parents to comply will be intense.

 

If they say you must get injected then you must do it. Or lose your job. Lose your career, lose your college education, lose your ability to pay your bills and put food on the table. If they say you must inject your child, you must do it, or pull them out of school.

 

Looking like communism yet?

 

To know their agenda, all we need to do is listen to what these elitist global predators say in their own words.

 

But here’s the key: Don’t listen to what they say when they’re being interviewed by NBC, ABC, CNN or the Washington Post. These are their propaganda hirelings. No, you must listen to what they say when they’re speaking to each other, when they don’t think anyone on the outside is paying attention.

 

So if you want to know the real reason for Covid and the insane response to Covid from governments across the formerly Free World, just listen to Fauci and his colleagues speaking at a Future of Health Summit at the Milken Institute in 2019.

 

Fauci and his biomedical buddies openly discussed the need for a “disruptive event” – a ‘flu-like virus’ out of China – to justify bypassing decades of approval for a new vaccine technology (mRNA) they wanted to introduce. They knew such an experiment would never fly unless people were scared to death of a new killer virus.

 

Shockingly, the video of these mad scientists discussing their evil plans is still up on Twitter. Watch and try not to lose the contents of your stomach.

But wait. It gets worse.

 

Bill Gates, Klaus Schwab, Anthony Fauci and company want to use the fear conjured by the virus to prod people to accept a new digital ID system.

 

They want to take your physical identity and merge it with your digital identity so you will be easier to track, monitor and evaluate in terms of your worth to society. Klaus Schwab, the founding director of the World Economic Forum, told us this in his book The Fourth Industrial Revolution. We should have listened when that book came out in January 2017, almost five years ago.

 

Also in 2017, Dr. Seth Berkley, CEO of Bill Gates’ Gavi Global Vaccine Alliance, wrote a piece for Nature magazine that emphasized the need to move the masses into digital ID systems.

 

In 2018, GAVI announced that digital identity was the focus for its INFUSE program, in line with goal 16.9 of U.N. Agenda 2030, which in September 2015 was approved by more than 100 nations as an update to Agenda 21.

 

The below graphic, since removed from GAVI’s website, lays out the final stage of the digital-identity health passport system, dubbed “Access to Other Services.”

 

The digital-identity health passport system

The digital-identity health passport system

 

“…the digital child health card can be used to access secondary services, such as primary school, or financial services, serving as the foundation for a broadly recognized digital identity.”

 

 

So you see where they are going with this whole health-passport scam. It has nothing to do with your health. Your physical, digital and financial life will all be tied together into one nifty little digital identification card, scannable with a QR code on your cellphone. Is it a coincidence that starting in 2022, all of the older cellphones, flip-phones and “burner phones” will be phased out, no longer serviceable by your cell-service provider?

 

 

Conform or get left behind. The decision is yours. As for me and mine, leaving it all behind is starting to look better and better.

 

 

But, in the process of making that decision, don’t be afraid to see what you see.

A Fowl Tale

The presumptuous fowl thought that they could manage their own affairs better than the farmer could. They decided to hold democratic elections…

Rabbi Lazer Brody Posted on 17March2013  https://breslev.com/411124/

The farmer was so frustrated – the fowl in the barnyard just couldn’t get along. They had plenty to eat and drink. They had dry bedding. They had a spacious barn and a beautiful barnyard with lush green grass and clear-water fish pond. The farmer provided them with all their needs. Yet they never seemed to be satisfied. If envy were fire, then the poultry barn would have been burned down long ago. In fact, the farmer had lost two previous poultry barns due to fires. He certainly didn’t want to lose a third one.

The presumptuous fowl thought that they could manage their own affairs better than the farmer could. One night, they held a clandestine meeting in the barnyard, thinking that the farmer was asleep. They decided to hold democratic elections. Whoever would receive a majority would govern the poultry barn.

The wise farmer was well-aware of everything that transpired in the barnyard. The chickens, turkeys, ducks and geese had never noticed the tiny yet sensitive monitors connected to the barn’s rafters which enabled the farmer to see and hear everything. “If the silly birds think they can handle their affairs better than I can, let them try!” Amused, the patient farmer let the poultry play…

During the weeks preceding the elections, the inter-poultry relations deteriorated to a new low. Instead of each flock presenting its own positive program for poultry progress, they just disparaged one another. The barnyard bickering became bitter and unbearable.

The turkeys pranced around haughtily, always pointing an accusing wing at the chickens and complaining, “We’re sick and tired of supporting you chickens. The farmer makes a mint selling our wing feathers as quills, for scribes the world over uses them to write Torah scrolls, tefillin and mezuza parchments. It’s about time the rest of you freeloading fowl stop depending on us for income. Go to work!”

The geese, just as smug as the turkeys, honked to no end in the chicken’s faces too. They’d boast, “Do you know why the farmer has no dogs? We are better that watch dogs! Thanks to our honking, everyone in the barnyard knows when a stranger is approaching. And furthermore, we bite too! An unwelcome visitor doesn’t easily forget being snapped in the leg by a goose. It’s about time the rest of you parasitic chickens begin contributing to the defense of the barnyard. Do you expect our goslings to put their lives on the line at a young age while your chicks just chirp away? No way! Enough with the preferential treatment of chickens. You must begin to equally share the defense burden…”

“And the economic burden too,” added the turkeys.

The ducks had nothing against the chickens. In fact, they had always lived in peace with the chickens. Yet, the ducks saw that if they don’t make a coalition with the powerful turkeys and geese, they might lose all influence in the barnyard and become outcasts just like the chickens.

The chickens suffered non-stop humiliation. The other birds united against them. One undaunted hen got up from her coop and gave a clucking cry, “So what if our husbands don’t seem to be working or defending the barnyard? Our master the farmer has tremendous joy and gratification from our husbands’ crowing at the crack of dawn. This wakes him up every morning. By virtue of our roosters’ crowing, the farmer gives us feed, water and fresh bedding every day. Besides, the eggs that we lay are what really generates the bulk of the income in the barnyard…”

The turkeys gobbled and the geese honked at the top of their larynxes, drowning out the chickens. “Are you hens crazy?” they guffawed. “Who ever heard such nonsense! Do you really think that your roosters’ crowing is what defends us? We defend ourselves! Your husbands are a bunch of lazy cockadoodles. And as far as your eggs are concerned, all do is make baby chicks all the time while freeloading from our already strained economy. Go to work! Stop having so many baby chicks! Send your husbands to help defend the barnyard!”

A few embarrassed roosters thought that if they stopped crowing and  joined the ranks of the geese defenders, then there would be peace in the barnyard. But in truth, the roosters were never welcome in the ranks of the defenders. The female geese would honk in their ears all the time, driving the roosters insane.

Then, an argument broke out among the chickens. The black roosters refused to participate in the barnyard elections. “Since the beginning of our existence, our unwavering allegiance has been to the farmer. We don’t recognize any fowl regime. No one will ever force us to stop crowing.”

The white chickens and the brown chickens protested, “But we must be a part of the system! We must have our own political power; how else will we receive a fair share of feed, water and shelter? And, if we’re not in the government, the whole barnyard will lose its allegiance to the farmer. We might even lose the right to lay eggs and to crow.”

The non-stop arguing in poultry barn was like one big boiling cauldron. The chickens couldn’t even get along with each other. Now that the black chickens had boycotted the elections, an argument broke out between the white chickens and the brown chickens. The white chickens wanted sweet chicken feed, while the brown chickens demanded spicy chicken feed. Consequently, they split into two separate parties. If that wasn’t bad enough, the brown chickens couldn’t decide on a leader, so they appointed three brown roosters to jointly run the party affairs. Yet, in all the history of poultry, three roosters have never been in agreement on anything…

Sure enough, the elections were inconclusive. The chickens lost much of their electoral power because of those who refused to vote and because of their lack of unity. The ducks received slightly more votes than the other flocks, but lacked a majority. In order to govern, they needed the geese and the turkeys.

Meanwhile, the geese and the turkeys made a pact – either they go into the coalition together or not at all. The ducks had a difficult time dealing with all the geese-and-turkey demands, but in the end, gave in. Don’t expect ideology in poultry politics…

Meanwhile, with chaos in the barnyard, the weasels, foxes and wolves are lurking this very moment in the forest right outside the farm’s borders, just ready to devour all the plump poultry. The farmer knows that they are there, and only his constant vigilance keeps the predators away.

And Now Gazprom Reminds Europe: Winter Will be Big (Video)

By John Galt on 06September2022 https://johngaltfla.com/economics/and-now-gazprom-reminds-europe-winter-will-be-big-video/

Epic propaganda:

Gazprom has published a video with an epic soundtrack “And winter will be big”

YouTube Comments:

I think it has a massage: see you in the spring…

А зима будет большая… Вот, гляди-ка, за рекой Осень тихо умирает, Машет желтою рукой. Плачут мокрые осины, Плачет дедушка Арбат, Плачет синяя Россия, Превратившись в листопад. И, сугробы сокрушая, Солнце брызнет по весне… А зима будет большая — Только сумерки да снег. And the winter will be big … Here, look, across the river Autumn is slowly dying Waving yellow hand. Wet aspens are crying, Crying grandfather Arbat, Crying gray Russia Turned into leaf fall. And, crushing the snowdrifts, The sun shines in spring… And the winter will be big – Only dusk and snow.

Think Napoleonic War of 1812 The retreat from Moscow or The Great Patriotic War of World War ll.

Yet we have buffoons in the US, especially on financial television, which claim that the problems of Europe, Japan, and South Korea will not impact the domestic economy.

 

The bad news is that just this one chart shows that the impacts are coming, soon and fast:

ALUMINUM ZINC INVENTORIES EUROPE 2017-2022

ALUMINUM ZINC INVENTORIES EUROPE 2017-2022

Once the US inventories are depleted, all bets are off on just how fast US industrial production collapses as these are crucial metals for manufacturing.

 

Maybe Senile Joe can start a game show called “Wheel of Protein” where Jen Psaki spins it to see if poor people can win 4 months worth of food at 2000 calories per day or a couple of tanks of gas for their used cars.

Ex-Polish FM thanks US for destruction of Russian gas pipeline

27 Sep, 2022 21:32  https://www.rt.com/news/563632-sikorski-usa-nordstream-poland/

Moscow has called the incidents a ‘terrorist attack’

Radek Sikorski MEP-tweet-27September2022-Thank you USA

Radek Sikorski MEP-tweet-27September2022-Thank you USA

While the US, Russia and most European governments have reserved judgment as to who might be behind Monday’s explosion that damaged both Nord Stream pipelines, former Polish Foreign Minister Radoslaw Sikorski had no such qualms.

 

“Thank you USA,” Sikorski tweeted on Tuesday, alongside a photo of the massive gas leak in the waters of the Baltic Sea. Both pipelines were severely damaged off the coast of the Danish island of Bornholm, in what many now call a deliberate act.

 

Sikorski later tweeted, in Polish, that damage to Nord Stream means that Russia will have to “talk to the countries controlling the Brotherhood and Yamal gas pipelines, Ukraine and Poland” if it wishes to continue delivering gas to Europe. “Good work,” he concluded.

 

Nord Stream 1 and Nord Stream 2 lost all pressure on Monday, after what the Swedish and Danish authorities later said were a series of undersea explosions. The first pipeline was operating at reduced capacity after what Russia said were technical difficulties, while the second was fully pressurized but not operational, due to German refusal to certify it.

 

Russian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman Maria Zakharova wondered if Sikorsky’s tweet amounted to an “official statement that this was a terrorist attack.” Meanwhile, Moscow’s deputy ambassador to the UN, Dmitry Polyanskiy, thanked Sikorski for “making it crystal clear who stands behind this terrorist-style targeting of civilian infrastructure!”

Polish Prime Minister Mateusz Morawiecki didn’t go quite as far as Sikorski, but chose to describe the Nord Stream incident as “an act of sabotage, related to the next step of escalation of the situation in Ukraine.”

 

Not just any MEP, Sikorski is a former UK citizen and a fellow at numerous US and NATO think-tanks, as well as Poland’s former defense (2005-2007) and foreign minister (2007-2014). In October 2014, he was caught fabricating a claim about Russian President Vladimir Putin wanting to partition Ukraine with Warsaw, and was forced to recant.

 

Sikorski called Russia a “serial rapist” in January 2022 and in June told Ukraine’s Espreso TV that NATO had the right to give Kiev nuclear weapons. He is married to American pundit Anne Applebaum, who is also an outspoken foe of Russia.

 

While Sikorski thanked the US for the Nord Stream sabotage, Kiev blamed Russia. President Vladimir Zelensky’s adviser Mikhail Podoliak called it “a terrorist attack planned by Russia and an act of aggression towards EU,” arguing the best response would be sending German tanks to the Ukrainian army.

Signing of treaties on accession of Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics and Zaporozhye and Kherson regions to Russia

A ceremony for signing the treaties on the accession of the Donetsk People’s Republic, the Lugansk People’s Republic, the Zaporozhye Region and the Kherson Region to the Russian Federation took place in of the Grand Kremlin Palace’s St George Hall.

September 30, 2022 – 16:00 The Kremlin, Moscow http://en.kremlin.ru/events/president/news/69465

President of Russia Vladimir Putin: Citizens of Russia, citizens of the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics, residents of the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions, deputies of the State Duma, senators of the Russian Federation,

 

As you know, referendums have been held in the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics and the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions. The ballots have been counted and the results have been announced. The people have made their unequivocal choice.

 

Today we will sign treaties on the accession of the Donetsk People’s Republic, Lugansk People’s Republic, Zaporozhye Region and Kherson Region to the Russian Federation. I have no doubt that the Federal Assembly will support the constitutional laws on the accession to Russia and the establishment of four new regions, our new constituent entities of the Russian Federation, because this is the will of millions of people. (Applause.)

 

It is undoubtedly their right, an inherent right sealed in Article 1 of the UN Charter, which directly states the principle of equal rights and self-determination of peoples.

 

I repeat, it is an inherent right of the people. It is based on our historical affinity, and it is that right that led generations of our predecessors, those who built and defended Russia for centuries since the period of Ancient Rus, to victory.

 

Here in Novorossiya, [Pyotr] Rumyantsev, [Alexander] Suvorov and [Fyodor] Ushakov fought their battles, and Catherine the Great and [Grigory] Potyomkin founded new cities. Our grandfathers and great-grandfathers fought here to the bitter end during the Great Patriotic War.

 

We will always remember the heroes of the Russian Spring, those who refused to accept the neo-Nazi coup d’état in Ukraine in 2014, all those who died for the right to speak their native language, to preserve their culture, traditions and religion, and for the very right to live. We remember the soldiers of Donbass, the martyrs of the “Odessa Khatyn,” the victims of inhuman terrorist attacks carried out by the Kiev regime. We commemorate volunteers and militiamen, civilians, children, women, senior citizens, Russians, Ukrainians, people of various nationalities; popular leader of Donetsk Alexander Zakharchenko; military commanders Arsen Pavlov and Vladimir Zhoga, Olga Kochura and Alexei Mozgovoy; prosecutor of the Lugansk Republic Sergei Gorenko; paratrooper Nurmagomed Gadzhimagomedov and all our soldiers and officers who died a hero’s death during the special military operation. They are heroes. (Applause.) Heroes of great Russia. Please join me in a minute of silence to honour their memory.

(Minute of silence.)

Thank you.

 

Behind the choice of millions of residents in the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics, in the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions, is our common destiny and thousand-year history. People have passed this spiritual connection on to their children and grandchildren. Despite all the trials they endured, they carried the love for Russia through the years. This is something no one can destroy. That is why both older generations and young people – those who were born after the tragic collapse of the Soviet Union – have voted for our unity, for our common future.

 

In 1991 in Belovezhskaya Pushcha, representatives of the party elite of that time made a decision to terminate the Soviet Union, without asking ordinary citizens what they wanted, and people suddenly found themselves cut off from their homeland. This tore apart and dismembered our national community and triggered a national catastrophe. Just like the government quietly demarcated the borders of Soviet republics, acting behind the scenes after the 1917 revolution, the last leaders of the Soviet Union, contrary to the direct expression of the will of the majority of people in the referendum of 1991, destroyed our great country, and simply made the people in the former republics face this as an accomplished fact.

 

I can admit that they didn’t even know what they were doing and what consequences their actions would have in the end. But it doesn’t matter now. There is no Soviet Union anymore; we cannot return to the past. Actually, Russia no longer needs it today; this isn’t our ambition. But there is nothing stronger than the determination of millions of people who, by their culture, religion, traditions, and language, consider themselves part of Russia, whose ancestors lived in a single country for centuries. There is nothing stronger than their determination to return to their true historical homeland.

 

For eight long years, people in Donbass were subjected to genocide, shelling and blockades; in Kherson and Zaporozhye, a criminal policy was pursued to cultivate hatred for Russia, for everything Russian. Now too, during the referendums, the Kiev regime threatened schoolteachers, women who worked in election commissions with reprisals and death. Kiev threatened millions of people who came to express their will with repression. But the people of Donbass, Zaporozhye and Kherson weren’t broken, and they had their say.

 

I want the Kiev authorities and their true handlers in the West to hear me now, and I want everyone to remember this: the people living in Lugansk and Donetsk, in Kherson and Zaporozhye have become our citizens, forever. (Applause.)

 

We call on the Kiev regime to immediately cease fire and all hostilities; to end the war it unleashed back in 2014 and return to the negotiating table. We are ready for this, as we have said more than once. But the choice of the people in Donetsk, Lugansk, Zaporozhye and Kherson will not be discussed. The decision has been made, and Russia will not betray it. (Applause.) Kiev’s current authorities should respect this free expression of the people’s will; there is no other way. This is the only way to peace.

 

We will defend our land with all the forces and resources we have, and we will do everything we can to ensure the safety of our people. This is the great liberating mission of our nation.

 

We will definitely rebuild the destroyed cities and towns, the residential buildings, schools, hospitals, theatres and museums. We will restore and develop industrial enterprises, factories, infrastructure, as well as the social security, pension, healthcare and education systems.

 

We will certainly work to improve the level of security. Together we will make sure that citizens in the new regions can feel the support of all the people of Russia, of the entire nation, all the republics, territories and regions of our vast Motherland. (Applause.)

Friends, colleagues,

 

Today I would like to address our soldiers and officers who are taking part in the special military operation, the fighters of Donbass and Novorossiya, those who went to military recruitment offices after receiving a call-up paper under the executive order on partial mobilisation, and those who did this voluntarily, answering the call of their hearts. I would like to address their parents, wives and children, to tell them what our people are fighting for, what kind of enemy we are up against, and who is pushing the world into new wars and crises and deriving blood-stained benefits from this tragedy.

 

Our compatriots, our brothers and sisters in Ukraine who are part of our united people have seen with their own eyes what the ruling class of the so-called West have prepared for humanity as a whole. They have dropped their masks and shown what they are really made of.

 

When the Soviet Union collapsed, the West decided that the world and all of us would permanently accede to its dictates. In 1991, the West thought that Russia would never rise after such shocks and would fall to pieces on its own. This almost happened. We remember the horrible 1990s, hungry, cold and hopeless. But Russia remained standing, came alive, grew stronger and occupied its rightful place in the world.

 

Meanwhile, the West continued and continues looking for another chance to strike a blow at us, to weaken and break up Russia, which they have always dreamed about, to divide our state and set our peoples against each other, and to condemn them to poverty and extinction. They cannot rest easy knowing that there is such a great country with this huge territory in the world, with its natural wealth, resources and people who cannot and will not do someone else’s bidding.

 

The West is ready to cross every line to preserve the neo-colonial system which allows it to live off the world, to plunder it thanks to the domination of the dollar and technology, to collect an actual tribute from humanity, to extract its primary source of unearned prosperity, the rent paid to the hegemon. The preservation of this annuity is their main, real and absolutely self-serving motivation. This is why total de-sovereignisation is in their interest. This explains their aggression towards independent states, traditional values and authentic cultures, their attempts to undermine international and integration processes, new global currencies and technological development centres they cannot control. It is critically important for them to force all countries to surrender their sovereignty to the United States.

 

In certain countries, the ruling elites voluntarily agree to do this, voluntarily agree to become vassals; others are bribed or intimidated. And if this does not work, they destroy entire states, leaving behind humanitarian disasters, devastation, ruins, millions of wrecked and mangled human lives, terrorist enclaves, social disaster zones, protectorates, colonies and semi-colonies. They don’t care. All they care about is their own benefit.

 

I want to underscore again that their insatiability and determination to preserve their unfettered dominance are the real causes of the hybrid war that the collective West is waging against Russia. They do not want us to be free; they want us to be a colony. They do not want equal cooperation; they want to loot. They do not want to see us a free society, but a mass of soulless slaves.

 

They see our thought and our philosophy as a direct threat. That is why they target our philosophers for assassination. Our culture and art present a danger to them, so they are trying to ban them. Our development and prosperity are also a threat to them because competition is growing. They do not want or need Russia, but we do. (Applause.)

 

I would like to remind you that in the past, ambitions of world domination have repeatedly shattered against the courage and resilience of our people. Russia will always be Russia. We will continue to defend our values and our Motherland.

 

The West is counting on impunity, on being able to get away with anything. As a matter of fact, this was actually the case until recently. Strategic security agreements have been trashed; agreements reached at the highest political level have been declared tall tales; firm promises not to expand NATO to the east gave way to dirty deception as soon as our former leaders bought into them; missile defence, intermediate-range and shorter-range missile treaties have been unilaterally dismantled under far-fetched pretexts.

 

And all we hear is, the West is insisting on a rules-based order. Where did that come from anyway? Who has ever seen these rules? Who agreed or approved them? Listen, this is just a lot of nonsense, utter deceit, double standards, or even triple standards! They must think we’re stupid.

 

Russia is a great thousand-year-old power, a whole civilisation, and it is not going to live by such makeshift, false rules. (Applause.)

 

It was the so-called West that trampled on the principle of the inviolability of borders, and now it is deciding, at its own discretion, who has the right to self-determination and who does not, who is unworthy of it. It is unclear what their decisions are based on or who gave them the right to decide in the first place. They just assumed it.

 

That is why the choice of the people in Crimea, Sevastopol, Donetsk, Lugansk, Zaporozhye and Kherson makes them so furiously angry. The West does not have any moral right to weigh in, or even utter a word about freedom of democracy. It does not and it never did.

 

Western elites not only deny national sovereignty and international law. Their hegemony has pronounced features of totalitarianism, despotism and apartheid. They brazenly divide the world into their vassals – the so-called civilised countries – and all the rest, who, according to the designs of today’s Western racists, should be added to the list of barbarians and savages. False labels like “rogue country” or “authoritarian regime” are already available, and are used to stigmatise entire nations and states, which is nothing new. There is nothing new in this: deep down, the Western elites have remained the same colonisers. They discriminate and divide peoples into the top tier and the rest.

 

We have never agreed to and will never agree to such political nationalism and racism. What else, if not racism, is the Russophobia being spread around the world? What, if not racism, is the West’s dogmatic conviction that its civilisation and neoliberal culture is an indisputable model for the entire world to follow? “You’re either with us or against us.” It even sounds strange.

 

Western elites are even shifting repentance for their own historical crimes on everyone else, demanding that the citizens of their countries and other peoples confess to things they have nothing to do with at all, for example, the period of colonial conquests.

 

It is worth reminding the West that it began its colonial policy back in the Middle Ages, followed by the worldwide slave trade, the genocide of Indian tribes in America, the plunder of India and Africa, the wars of England and France against China, as a result of which it was forced to open its ports to the opium trade. What they did was get entire nations hooked on drugs and purposefully exterminated entire ethnic groups for the sake of grabbing land and resources, hunting people like animals. This is contrary to human nature, truth, freedom and justice.

 

While we – we are proud that in the 20th century our country led the anti-colonial movement, which opened up opportunities for many peoples around the world to make progress, reduce poverty and inequality, and defeat hunger and disease.

 

To emphasise, one of the reasons for the centuries-old Russophobia, the Western elites’ unconcealed animosity toward Russia is precisely the fact that we did not allow them to rob us during the period of colonial conquests and forced the Europeans to trade with us on mutually beneficial terms. This was achieved by creating a strong centralised state in Russia, which grew and got stronger based on the great moral values ​​of Orthodox Christianity, Islam, Judaism and Buddhism, as well as Russian culture and the Russian word that were open to all.

 

There were numerous plans to invade Russia. Such attempts were made during the Time of Troubles in the 17th century and in the period of ordeals after the 1917 revolution. All of them failed. The West managed to grab hold of Russia’s wealth only in the late 20th century, when the state had been destroyed. They called us friends and partners, but they treated us like a colony, using various schemes to pump trillions of dollars out of the country. We remember. We have not forgotten anything.

 

A few days ago, people in Donetsk and Lugansk, Kherson and Zaporozhye declared their support for restoring our historical unity. Thank you! (Applause.)

 

Western countries have been saying for centuries that they bring freedom and democracy to other nations. Nothing could be further from the truth. Instead of bringing democracy they suppressed and exploited, and instead of giving freedom they enslaved and oppressed. The unipolar world is inherently anti-democratic and unfree; it is false and hypocritical through and through.

 

The United States is the only country in the world that has used nuclear weapons twice, destroying the cities of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in Japan. And they created a precedent.

 

Recall that during WWII the United States and Britain reduced Dresden, Hamburg, Cologne and many other German cities to rubble, without the least military necessity. It was done ostentatiously and, to repeat, without any military necessity. They had only one goal, as with the nuclear bombing of Japanese cities: to intimidate our country and the rest of the world.

 

The United States left a deep scar in the memory of the people of Korea and Vietnam with their carpet bombings and use of napalm and chemical weapons.

 

It actually continues to occupy Germany, Japan, the Republic of Korea and other countries, which they cynically refer to as equals and allies. Look now, what kind of alliance is that? The whole world knows that the top officials in these countries are being spied on and that their offices and homes are bugged. It is a disgrace, a disgrace for those who do this and for those who, like slaves, silently and meekly swallow this arrogant behaviour.

 

They call the orders and threats they make to their vassals Euro-Atlantic solidarity, and the creation of biological weapons and the use of human test subjects, including in Ukraine, noble medical research.

 

It is their destructive policies, wars and plunder that have unleashed today’s massive wave of migrants. Millions of people endure hardships and humiliation or die by the thousands trying to reach Europe.

 

They are exporting grain from Ukraine now. Where are they taking it under the guise of ensuring the food security of the poorest countries? Where is it going? They are taking it to the self-same European countries. Only five percent has been delivered to the poorest countries. More cheating and naked deception again.

 

In effect, the American elite is using the tragedy of these people to weaken its rivals, to destroy nation states. This goes for Europe and for the identities of France, Italy, Spain and other countries with centuries-long histories.

 

Washington demands more and more sanctions against Russia and the majority of European politicians obediently go along with it. They clearly understand that by pressuring the EU to completely give up Russian energy and other resources, the United States is practically pushing Europe toward deindustrialisation in a bid to get its hands on the entire European market. These European elites understand everything – they do, but they prefer to serve the interests of others. This is no longer servility but direct betrayal of their own peoples. God bless, it is up to them.

 

But the Anglo-Saxons believe sanctions are no longer enough and now they have turned to subversion. It seems incredible but it is a fact – by causing explosions on Nord Stream’s international gas pipelines passing along the bottom of the Baltic Sea, they have actually embarked on the destruction of Europe’s entire energy infrastructure. It is clear to everyone who stands to gain. Those who benefit are responsible, of course.

 

The dictates of the US are backed up by crude force, on the law of the fist. Sometimes it is beautifully wrapped sometimes there is no wrapping at all but the gist is the same – the law of the fist. Hence, the deployment and maintenance of hundreds of military bases in all corners of the world, NATO expansion, and attempts to cobble together new military alliances, such as AUKUS and the like. Much is being done to create a Washington-Seoul-Tokyo military-political chain. All states that possess or aspire to genuine strategic sovereignty and are capable of challenging Western hegemony, are automatically declared enemies.

 

These are the principles that underlie US and NATO military doctrines that require total domination. Western elites are presenting their neocolonialist plans with the same hypocrisy, claiming peaceful intentions, talking about some kind of deterrence. This evasive word migrates from one strategy to another but really only means one thing – undermining any and all sovereign centres of power.

 

We have already heard about the deterrence of Russia, China and Iran. I believe next in line are other countries of Asia, Latin America, Africa and the Middle East, as well as current US partners and allies. After all, we know that when they are displeased, they introduce sanctions against their allies as well – against this or that bank or company. This is their practice and they will expand it. They have everything in their sights, including our next-door neighbours – the CIS countries.

 

At the same time, the West has clearly been engaged in wishful thinking for a long time. In launching the sanctions blitzkrieg against Russia, for example, they thought that they could once again line up the whole world at their command. As it turns out, however, such a bright prospect does not excite everyone – other than complete political masochists and admirers of other unconventional forms of international relations. Most states refuse to ”snap a salute“ and instead choose the sensible path of cooperation with Russia.

 

The West clearly did not expect such insubordination. They simply got used to acting according to a template, to grab whatever they please, by blackmail, bribery, intimidation, and convinced themselves that these methods would work forever, as if they had fossilised in the past.

 

Such self-confidence is a direct product not only of the notorious concept of exceptionalism – although it never ceases to amaze – but also of the real ”information hunger“ in the West. The truth has been drowned in an ocean of myths, illusions and fakes, using extremely aggressive propaganda, lying like Goebbels. The more unbelievable the lie, the quicker people will believe it – that is how they operate, according to this principle.

 

But people cannot be fed with printed dollars and euros. You can’t feed them with those pieces of paper, and the virtual, inflated capitalisation of western social media companies can’t heat their homes. Everything I am saying is important. And what I just said is no less so: you can’t feed anyone with paper – you need food; and you can’t heat anyone’s home with these inflated capitalisations – you need energy.

 

That is why politicians in Europe have to convince their fellow citizens to eat less, take a shower less often and dress warmer at home. And those who start asking fair questions like “Why is that, in fact?” are immediately declared enemies, extremists and radicals. They point back at Russia and say: that is the source of all your troubles. More lies.

 

I want to make special note of the fact that there is every reason to believe that the Western elites are not going to look for constructive ways out of the global food and energy crisis that they and they alone are to blame for, as a result of their long-term policy, dating back long before our special military operation in Ukraine, in Donbass. They have no intention of solving the problems of injustice and inequality. I am afraid they would rather use other formulas they are more comfortable with.

 

And here it is important to recall that the West bailed itself out of its early 20th century challenges with World War I. Profits from World War II helped the United States finally overcome the Great Depression and become the largest economy in the world, and to impose on the planet the power of the dollar as a global reserve currency. And the 1980s crisis – things came to a head in the 1980s again – the West emerged from it unscathed largely by appropriating the inheritance and resources of the collapsed and defunct Soviet Union. That’s a fact.

 

Now, in order to free itself from the latest web of challenges, they need to dismantle Russia as well as other states that choose a sovereign path of development, at all costs, to be able to further plunder other nations’ wealth and use it to patch their own holes. If this does not happen, I cannot rule out that they will try to trigger a collapse of the entire system, and blame everything on that, or, God forbid, decide to use the old formula of economic growth through war.

 

Russia is aware of its responsibility to the international community and will make every effort to ensure that cooler heads prevail.

 

The current neocolonial model is ultimately doomed; this much is obvious. But I repeat that its real masters will cling to it to the end. They simply have nothing to offer the world except to maintain the same system of plundering and racketeering.

 

They do not give a damn about the natural right of billions of people, the majority of humanity, to freedom and justice, the right to determine their own future. They have already moved on to the radical denial of moral, religious, and family values.

 

Let’s answer some very simple questions for ourselves. Now I would like to return to what I said and want to address also all citizens of the country – not just the colleagues that are in the hall – but all citizens of Russia: do we want to have here, in our country, in Russia, “parent number one, parent number two and parent number three” (they have completely lost it!) instead of mother and father? Do we want our schools to impose on our children, from their earliest days in school, perversions that lead to degradation and extinction? Do we want to drum into their heads the ideas that certain other genders exist along with women and men and to offer them gender reassignment surgery? Is that what we want for our country and our children? This is all unacceptable to us. We have a different future of our own.

 

Let me repeat that the dictatorship of the Western elites targets all societies, including the citizens of Western countries themselves. This is a challenge to all. This complete renunciation of what it means to be human, the overthrow of faith and traditional values, and the suppression of freedom are coming to resemble a “religion in reverse” – pure Satanism. Exposing false messiahs, Jesus Christ said in the Sermon on the Mount: “By their fruits ye shall know them.” These poisonous fruits are already obvious to people, and not only in our country but also in all countries, including many people in the West itself.

 

The world has entered a period of a fundamental, revolutionary transformation. New centres of power are emerging. They represent the majority – the majority! – of the international community. They are ready not only to declare their interests but also to protect them. They see in multipolarity an opportunity to strengthen their sovereignty, which means gaining genuine freedom, historical prospects, and the right to their own independent, creative and distinctive forms of development, to a harmonious process.

 

As I have already said, we have many like-minded people in Europe and the United States, and we feel and see their support. An essentially emancipatory, anti-colonial movement against unipolar hegemony is taking shape in the most diverse countries and societies. Its power will only grow with time. It is this force that will determine our future geopolitical reality.

Friends,

 

Today, we are fighting for a just and free path, first of all for ourselves, for Russia, in order to leave dictate and despotism in the past. I am convinced that countries and peoples understand that a policy based on the exceptionalism of whoever it may be and the suppression of other cultures and peoples is inherently criminal, and that we must close this shameful chapter. The ongoing collapse of Western hegemony is irreversible. And I repeat: things will never be the same.

 

The battlefield to which destiny and history have called us is a battlefield for our people, for the great historical Russia. (Applause.) For the great historical Russia, for future generations, our children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. We must protect them against enslavement and monstrous experiments that are designed to cripple their minds and souls.

 

Today, we are fighting so that it would never occur to anyone that Russia, our people, our language, or our culture can be erased from history. Today, we need a consolidated society, and this consolidation can only be based on sovereignty, freedom, creation, and justice. Our values ​​are humanity, mercy and compassion.

 

And I want to close with the words of a true patriot Ivan Ilyin: “If I consider Russia my Motherland, that means that I love as a Russian, contemplate and think, sing and speak as a Russian; that I believe in the spiritual strength of the Russian people. Its spirit is my spirit; its destiny is my destiny; its suffering is my grief; and its prosperity is my joy.”

 

Behind these words stands a glorious spiritual choice, which, for more than a thousand years of Russian statehood, was followed by many generations of our ancestors. Today, we are making this choice; the citizens of the Donetsk and Lugansk people’s republics and the residents of the Zaporozhye and Kherson regions have made this choice. They made the choice to be with their people, to be with their Motherland, to share in its destiny, and to be victorious together with it.

 

The truth is with us, and behind us is Russia!

(Applause.)

Vladimir Putin’s Battle Cry Against The Deep State

by Tyler Durden, 07October2022 – 06:00 AM https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/vladimir-putins-battle-cry-against-deep-state

Authored by Oscar Silva-Valladares via The Ron Paul Institute for Peace & Prosperity,

The recent ceremony of accession of four Ukrainian regions to Russia brought a speech from President Putin that outlined the reasons behind Russia’s current struggles, the character and identify of its foes and, more importantly, laid the groundwork for Russia’s next level of confrontation with the West beyond the ongoing military conflict in Ukraine.  In his speech, Putin clearly defined the present fight as a worldwide battle in which Russia plays a leading role against the Deep State that ultimately runs the West and which uses all available tools – including military, economic, cultural, and social – in its attempt to preserve unipolar world domination.

Vladimir Putin speech on the four Russian Ukrainian regions joining Russia

Vladimir Putin speech on the four Russian Ukrainian regions joining Russia

Putin’s words were directed to three distinctive audiences: the collective West, the Global South and Russia. He went back to Middle Ages history to remind the origins and impact of Western resource exploitation and colonialism in the Americas, Asia and Africa through imperialistic wars, racism, and slavery.  He touched upon the military exploits of the 20th century led primarily by the US and its allies and its impact in Germany and Japan at the end of the Second World War, Korea in the 1950s, Vietnam in the 1960-70s and its latest failed adventures in Iraq, Libya, Syria, and Afghanistan. He also highlighted the dire days of Russia during the 1990s and the Western powers’ attempts to turn it into a dismembered and passive cheap natural resources outlet. Putin’s message to Russians had nationalistic and religious tones, touching on the defence of traditional family values as a call to arms against the threat caused by dwindling population growth. He also named US monetary printing as one of the key tools used by the Western establishment to achieve its self-preservation and supremacy goals, reminding that paper doesn’t feed nor warms human beings.

 

It would be tempting to see this speech narrowly as just another manifestation of Russia’s position in the big geopolitical battles, but what Putin has done is setting international rivalry in deep historical and cultural terms which have an undoubted appeal across the globe. Critics will see Putin’s benign characterization of Russia as a cynical ploy that hides the country’s role, through its commanding post in the Soviet Union, in the subjugation of Eastern European countries after World War II, but nevertheless the Global South will see things differently.

 

Putin’s scathing attack against the West is a multi-headed weapon as it rallied to the conservative segments of a population dismayed by globalism imposing a deeply disturbing agenda that goes against traditional views on family, marriage and sex, but it also has leftist tones, as his criticism also goes against the same globalism that is worsening wealth disparity, and even a libertarian appeal as he referred to the imposition of states of emergency, media control and sanctions on other societies as examples of Western made totalitarianism. Putin’s primary target was the Anglo-Saxon establishment, mainly the US and Great Britain, and he attempted to build a wedge within the West as he focused on sovereignty, a cry with resonance in countries like Hungary and Italy, and on traditional anti-war sentiments in Germany and Japan by remembering the horrors of the World War II bombings in Dresden, Hamburg, Cologne, Hiroshima, and Nagasaki.

 

An immediate consequence of Putin’s rhetorical escalation will be increased US pressure on the Global South to follow anti-Russian sanctions.  To successfully counter this menace, and as Russia needs its continuous support, it will have to combine ideology with pragmatic and tangible support in terms of access to critical energy and food resources to the poorer countries. The recent abstentions of China, India and Brazil on a UN Security Council resolution calling for condemnation of the Ukraine referenda no doubt were driven by these countries’ expectations on Russia’s future actions.

 

Following the end of the Cold War and the collapse of the Soviet Union, and as it gradually abandoned socialism, Russia lost the powerful ideological appeal that it had during decades in the Global South and in the West’s anti-establishment segments.  The most remarkable aspect of Putin’s recent speech is bringing back ideological confrontation into the forefront. This new battle looks to present the West’s defence of democracy, freedom, and sovereignty as hollow and hypocritical. A combined message of anti-colonialism and conservatism is a powerful tool but Putin’s indirect and subtle appeal to people power as the only way to finally counter the Deep State is even stronger. Putin’s identification of the Deep State as humanity’s foe may be his ultimate ideological legacy, something avoidable if the US would have resigned itself to be just a normal country and to focus primarily on its people’s prosperity.

Power Blackout Risks Loom For Quarter Of All Americans

by Tyler Durden 18November2022 – 03:49 PM  https://www.zerohedge.com/markets/power-blackout-risks-loom-quarter-all-americans

The US heating season has officially begun, and new warnings show that a quarter of all Americans could experience energy emergencies this winter if temperatures fall below average due to tight fossil fuel supplies.

 

Power grids from the Great Lakes to Louisiana, New England, Carolinas, and all of Texas are the most at risk for power supply shortfalls during high-demand periods, according to Bloomberg, citing a new report from the North American Electric Reliability Corporation (NERC), a regulatory body that manages grid stability.

 

NERC said a cold snap for an extended period could spark grid strain due to soaring power demand from households and businesses. This would cause supplies of natural gas, coal, and backup diesel generators to draw down more quickly and possibly experience shortages.

“The trend is we see more areas at risk, we see more retirements of critical generation, fuel challenges and we are doing everything we can. 

“These challenges don’t kind of appear out of nowhere,” John Moura, NERC’s director of reliability assessment, said during a media briefing.

How power is shared in North America

For instance, the demand for diesel is rising, but East Coast supplies are at record lows for this time of year. Shortage of fuel used to power the economy, from heating to trucking, has about 25 days left of supplies in storage. Any supply disruption could leave power generation plants with supply gaps this winter.

US diesel supply

US diesel supply

Jim Matheson, chief executive officer of the National Rural Electric Cooperative Association, told Bloomberg that electricity demand is set to outpace “available supply during peak winter conditions, consumers face an inconceivable but real threat of rolling blackouts.”

 

Matheson warned: “It doesn’t have to be this way. But absent a shift in state and federal energy policy, this is a reality we will face for years to come.”

 

NERC’s warning about unstable grids covers about a quarter of the US population. The average household is expected to pay 47% more for electricity than a year ago — and there are at least 20 million households behind on utility bills.

 

The tightest power supplies are expected to be in the central US, managed by the Midcontinent Independent System Operator due to a large number of generators shut last winter and Gulf Coast power plants aren’t shielded against cold snaps. Then there’s New England, consists of six states in the US Northeast, Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont, which faces NatGas shortfalls due to inadequate pipeline infrastructure.

“There is a very real possibility that New England could be facing a dire set of consequences this winter,” James Danly, a commissioner on the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, warned Thursday.

Rapid decarbonization of the electricity sector is one of the main reasons America’s power grid is less reliable than ever before. Solar and wind are inconsistent, as Europe found out last winter, which only paves the path for a nuclear future.

The Blessing that Cured the Queen

19September2022 by Lazer Brody https://lazerbeams.com/the-blessing-that-cured-the-queen/

 

Shotzer Rebbe-King George VI c. 1939

Shotzer Rebbe-King George VI c. 1939

Here is an amazing true story that few people are aware of. It’s also a secret that even fewer people knew. And, it’s the unforgettable account of when the Shotzer Rebbe of London met face-to-face with King George VI. This was the momentous meeting that saved the life of the future Queen Elizabeth.

Epilepsy and the Royal Family

Epilepsy was in the genes of the British royal family. Queen Elizabeth’s uncle Prince John, the youngest son of King George V, died at age 13 from a severe seizure. That was in 1918.

Queen Elizabeth, age 9, with her grandparents King George V and Queen Mary on the balcony of buckingham Palace, 1935

Let’s fast-forward to 1939. Now, King George VI was deathly afraid that his 13-year-old daughter Elizabeth would meet the same fate as his brother Prince John.

The Kindertransport

That same year, the Jewish Agency was organizing the famous Kindertransport (German for “children’s transport”). This was the rescue effort of children from Nazi-controlled territory. It took place during the nine months prior to the outbreak of the World War II in September of 1939. The United Kingdom took in nearly 10,000 predominantly Jewish children from Germany, Austria, Czechoslovakia and Poland. This initiative encountered strong resistance from certain British circles.

 

The Chief Rabbi of England at the time was Rabbi Joseph Herman Hertz. He decided to intercede on behalf of the Kindertransport, so he visited King George VI together with the holy tzaddik, The Shotzer Rebbe of London, Grand Rabbi Shalom Moscowitz, osb”m.

The Rebbe’s Blessing

King George VI never saw such an illuminated countenance as that of the Shotzer Rebbe. He asked for a blessing for his daughter, who was 13 at the time, and suffering from epileptic seizures. “Please, might the Rebbe pray that my daughter will live.”

 

The Rebbe answered unequivocally, “If Your Majesty will assure that the Kindertransport is approved, and thereby save Jewish children, then undoubtedly measure for measure, the princess will not only live, but her ailment will disappear altogether.”

 

The King was deeply moved. The Kindertransport began immediately and the princess – later to be Queen Elizabeth II who passed away at the ripe old age of 96 on September 8, 2022 – was miraculously cured immediately.

 

Rabbi Lazer Brody’s teacher and spiritual guide, Grand Rabbi Naftali Moscowitz shlit’a, aka the “Melitzer Rebbe of Ashdod,” is the grandson of The Shotzer Rebbe of London, Grand Rabbi Shalom Moscowitz, osb”m. Recently, Rabbi Lazer visited the holy gravesite of the Shotzer Rebbe at  the Adath Yisroel Cemetery in Enfield, outside of London, and prayed for all of our readers, subscribers and supporters.

Gush Katif and Hurricane Katrina –

Gush Katif | Gaza Disengagement

Wikipedia-logoFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gush_Katif https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Israeli_disengagement_from_Gaza#Greenhouses
Gush Katif (Hebrewגוש קטיףlit.‘Harvest Bloc’) was a bloc of 17 Israeli settlements in the southern Gaza strip. In August 2005, the Israeli army forcibly removed the 8,600 residents of Gush Katif from their homes after a decision from the Cabinet. Their communities were demolished as part of Israel’s unilateral disengagement from the Gaza Strip.

Evacuation

On August 13, 2005, the Gush Katif region was closed to non-residents, in keeping with the plan to evacuate the Katif bloc. Though effectively violating the Disengagement law, which most residents viewed as highly immoral and illegitimate,[25] most settlers did not voluntarily leave their homes or even pack in preparation for the eviction. On August 15, 2005, the forcible evacuation of the Gush Katif settlements began. On August 22, 2005, the residents of the last settlement, Netzarim, were evicted. In essence, many residents returned to pack the contents of their homes and the Israeli government began the destruction of all residential buildings. On September 12, 2005, the Israeli Army withdrew from each settlement up to the Green Line. All public buildings (schools, libraries, community centres, office buildings) as well as industrial buildings, factories, and greenhouses which could not be taken apart were left intact.

 

Originally, the Israeli cabinet had planned to destroy synagogues in the settlement, but the government caved in to pressure from religious Jewish organizations and reversed its decision.[26][27] However, most of the synagogues were destroyed by Palestinian mobs immediately after the evacuation. Abu Abir, a member of the Popular Resistance Committees terrorist organization, commented that “The looting and burning of the synagogues was a great joy…It was in an unplanned expression of happiness that these synagogues were destroyed.” Later, in 2007, it was reported that “The ruins of two large synagogues in Gush Katif, the evacuated Jewish communities of the Gaza Strip, have been transformed into a military base used by Palestinian groups to fire rockets at Israeli cities and train for attacks against the Jewish state, according to a senior terror leader in Gaza.”[28]

Video: ‘Wise Men’ of 2005: No Rocket Threat

The “Wise Men of Chelm”? Knesset Members in 2005 said it is “ridiculous” to think terrorists will hit Ashkelon after the exit from Gaza.

Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu 12MarchM2012, 10:35 AM (GMT+2) https://www.israelnationalnews.com/news/153660

In what many would say is a parallel to the “Wise Men of Chelm,” Knesset Members in 2005 said it is “ridiculous” to think terrorists will hit Ashkelon after the exit from Gaza.

 

Arutz Sheva now presents a video of an Israel National News (Arutz Sheva) television in 2009, when the IDF entered Gaza in the counterterrorist Cast Lead campaign against terroroists, aired a Channel Two program, in which Amit Segal viewed promising speeches in 2005 on behalf of the “Disengagement” program to exit Gaza.

Politicians: “There is No Threat of Rockets from the Disengagement”

04February2009
Channel 2’s political correspondent has gathered together the statements of many of Israel’s leading politicians before the disengagement on how there is no danger of rockets. As seen on Arutz Sheva.
IsraelNationalNews.com

A majority of MKs voted in favor of the law that resulted in the expulsion of more than 9,000 Jews from Gaza, as well as from four Jewish communities in northern Samaria, and the withdrawal of all IDF forces.

 

“There is an argument according to which there will be a threat…a threat and retreat…a threat on the Negev communities,” said Meir Sheetrit, formerly of the Likud and now in the Kadima party, which was founded by Ariel Sharon after he feared the Likud would not approve his plan.

 

“I have never before heard such a ridiculous argument,” MK Sheetrit proclaimed.

 

Meretz MK Ran Cohen stated from the Knesset podium, “The Disengagement is good for security,”

 

He then scoffed at the “right wing people [who] stood here and talked about Kassams flying from here to there….If we don’t go out of Gaza in two or three years, maybe after one year, the [rocket] range will reach Ashkelon.

 

Even doctor of philosophy and current Finance Minister Yuval Steinitz, who now is calling for a ground invasion of Gaza, opined, “I think that this plan under the conditions is appropriate for our confidence.”

 

Before the Disengagement, Hamas relentlessly and brutally attacked Jews, including women and children, in Gaza for years, escalating the attacks with the onset of the Second Intifada, also known as the Oslo War in 2000.

 

After the expulsion in the summer of 2005, Hamas immediately fired rockets on the western Negev and the outskirts of Ashkelon. As they improved their rocket capability and smuggled into Gaza advanced missiles, the attacks reached Ashkelon and Ashdod and as far north as the edge of metropolitan Tel Aviv, prompting the Cast Lead counterterrorist operation.

 

Since then, southern cities have been under attack several times, the latest being the current assault that began Friday. Hamas and other terrorist groups have fired more than 150 rockets on Israeli civilians in the past five days.

Hurricane Katrina

Wikipedia-logoFrom Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hurricane_Katrina
Hurricane Katrina was a destructive Category 5 Atlantic hurricane that caused over 1,800 fatalities and $125 billion in damage in late August 2005, especially in the city of New Orleans and the surrounding areas. Katrina originated on August 23, 2005

Katrina emerged into the Gulf of Mexico on August 26 and began to rapidly intensify. The storm strengthened into a Category 5 hurricane over the warm waters of the Gulf of Mexico[1] before weakening to Category 3 strength at its second landfall on August 29 over southeast Louisiana and Mississippi.

Flooding, caused largely as a result of fatal engineering flaws in the flood protection system (levees)[2] around the city of New Orleans, precipitated most of the loss of lives.[3] Eventually, 80% of the city, as well as large tracts of neighboring parishes, were inundated for weeks.[4] The flooding also destroyed most of New Orleans’s transportation and communication facilities, leaving tens of thousands of people who had not evacuated the city prior to landfall stranded with little access to food, shelter, or other basic necessities. The scale of the disaster in New Orleans provoked massive national and international response efforts; federal, local, and private rescue operations evacuated displaced persons out of the city over the following weeks.

The Superdome, which was sheltering many people who had not evacuated, sustained significant damage.[66] Two sections of the Superdome’s roof were compromised and the dome’s waterproof membrane was essentially peeled off. Louis Armstrong New Orleans International Airport was closed before the storm but did not flood. On August 30, it was reopened to humanitarian and rescue operations. Limited commercial passenger service resumed at the airport on September 13 and regular carrier operations resumed in early October.[67]

Gush Katif and Katrina – Even 5 Years Later – Inseparable

August 23, 2010 https://yeranenyaakov.blogspot.com/2010/08/gush-katif-and-katrina-even-5-years.html

 

The emotional toll of the victims of the Disengagement was, and still is, extremely high – years after it took place. Just look at this study that underscores this. The study was done in 2008. I doubt much has changed.

The emotional toll on Hurricane Katrina victims is also still very high, according to Fox News.

NEW ORLEANS – A startling number of Gulf coast area children displaced by Hurricane Katrina still have serious emotional or behavioral problems five years later, a new study found.

 

More than one in three children studied — those forced to flee their homes because of the August 2005 storm — have since been diagnosed with mental health problems. These are children who moved to trailer parks and other emergency housing.

 

Nearly half of families studied still report household instability, researchers said.

 

“If children are bellwethers of recovery, then the social systems supporting affected Gulf Coast populations are still far from having recovered from Hurricane Katrina,” the researchers said.

 

The study was published online Monday in the journal Disaster Medicine and Public Health Preparedness.

Katrina and Isreal’s Withdrawal from Gaza

Posted by  07SEPTEMBER2009   https://randomthoughtsbypauly.blogspot.com/2009/09/katrina-and-isreals-withdrawal-from.html

Close to 10,000 Jews were expelled from their homes in the Gaza Strip and parts of northern Samaria. Katrina’s death toll is now expected to reach at least 10,000.
America’s population ratio to Israel is about 50:1. Ten thousand Jews who lost their Gaza homes is the equivalent of about 500,000 Americans who are now reported to be displaced as result of Katrina.

 

Gaza’s Jewish communities were located in Israel’s southern coastal region; America’s southern coastal region now lies in ruins.

 

The U.S. government called on Louisiana residents to evacuate their homes ahead of the storm. The Israeli government, backed by statements from U.S. officials, demanded Gaza residents evacuate their homes.

 

Katrina, written in Hebrew, has a numerical equivalent of 374, according to a biblical numbering system upheld by all traditional Jewish authorities. Two relevant passages in the Torah share the exact numerical equivalent: “They have done you evil” (Gen. 50:17) and “The sea upon land” (Exodus 14:15).

 

Bush, from Texas, and Rice, from Alabama, were the most vocal U.S. backers of the Gaza evacuation. Hurricane Katrina hit the states in between Texas and Alabama – Louisiana and Mississippi.

 

Similarity in scenes: Many residents of Jewish Gaza climbed to their rooftops to escape the threat of expulsion, while residents of the Gulf Coast climbed on their own rooftops to protect themselves from the rising waters. Jewish Gaza homes described as beautiful and charming were demolished this week by Israel’s military. Once beautiful homes in New Orleans now lie in ruins.

 

The day Katrina hit, Israel began carrying out what was termed the most controversial aspect of the Gaza withdrawal – the uprooting of bodies from the area’s Jewish cemetery. There have been media reports of corpses floating around in flooded New Orleans regions.

 

Citizens of Israel were barred from entering Gush Katif; people were only allowed to leave Jewish Gaza. As Katrina was making landfall U.S. authorities barred citizens from entering the affected areas. People were only allowed out.

  • The day Katrina hit, Israel began carrying out what was termed the most controversial aspect of the Gaza withdrawal – the uprooting of bodies from the area’s Jewish cemetery. There have been media reports of corpses floating around in flooded New Orleans regions.
  • Citizens of Israel were barred from entering Gush Katif; people were only allowed to leave Jewish Gaza. As Katrina was making landfall U.S. authorities barred citizens from entering the affected areas. People were only allowed out.
  • Gush Katif was an important agricultural area for Israel, providing the Jewish state with 70 percent of its produce. A New Orleans port that exported much of the Midwest’s agricultural production was destroyed by Katrina.
  • In a Jerusalem Newswire op-ed discussing the similarities just before Katrina made landfall, writer Stan Goodenough commented, “Is this some sort of bizarre coincidence? Not for those who believe in the God of the Bible and the immutability of His Word. What America is about to experience is the lifting of God’s hand of protection, the implementation of His judgment on the nation most responsible for endangering the land and people of Israel.”

Katrina’s message

August 29, 2005
Archived: https://web.archive.org/web/20051001080842/http://lazerbrody.typepad.com:80/lazer_beams/2005/08/katrinas_messag.html

Rebbe Nachman of Breslev teaches that we must constantly search for the Divine message in all the events of our lives, since Hashem speaks to us by way of our environment.

 

At the time of this writing, hurricane Katrina has been declared a national emergency in the USA; her winds now exceed 175 mph (nearly 300 km/hour). She’s a mere one hundred miles from the US coast, and approaching at a foreboding 13 miles per hour. Authorities in Louisiana have ordered hundreds of thousands of people to flee from their homes.

Katrina is hitting just as the bulldozers are completing the destruction of Gush Katif. The Talmud teaches that Hashem administers the world according to the “ATFAT” principle, in other words, “a turn for a turn” (for an elaboration of the ATFAT principle, see Chapter Six of The Trail to Tranquility). My heart tells me that there’s a link between the forced expulsion of 8500 people from their blood, sweat, and tear-soaked homes in Israeli Gaza and between the nearly 850,000 people who are forced to flee from their homes in Louisiana. Sharon, at the prodding of the American government, has destroyed hallowed centers of prayer, Torah learning, and settlement in the Land of Israel. Hashem isn’t wasting much time in showing His wrath. In fact, Katrina has chosen Ms. Rice’s home state as a target; I humbly believe that the unfortunate people of Louisiana can blame Mr. Bush and Ms. Rice for their misfortune. This is a classic ATFAT situation: He who creates exiles in the Holy Land, will have a hundred-fold exiles in his own land.

A bizarre turn of events – for weeks, the media was savoring over the confrontations between Jewish settlers and Jewish soldiers; now, similar pictures are pouring over the wire from New Orleans. In the above photo, courtesy of Reuters, a National Guardsman holds back people seeking refuge in the Louisiana Superdome, Sunday afternoon.A coincidence? I don’t believe in coincidences.

 

Katrina, written קטרינה in Hebrew, has a numerical equivalent of 374. Two relevant passages in Torah share the exact numerical equivalent of 374 also: רעה גמלוך, or “They have done you evil” (see Gen. 50:17), and ים ביבשה, or “The sea upon land” (see Exodus 14:15). The former passage may be an indication as to the spiritual cause of Katrina, while the latter passage describes the physical manifestation.

 

Mr. Bush and Ms. Rice, I implore you to repent, to ask Hashem’s forgiveness for destroying a flourishing part of Israel. Cancel all your demands for further territorial concessions in Israel. If by your initiative more Jews are rendered homeless, G-d forbid, I shudder to think of what could happen. Please take Katrina very seriously, for she is a no-nonsense messenger from The Almighty.

The US forced Israel out of Gaza and Northern Shomron in 2005

The rabbi who knew the real reason for Arik Sharon’s “Disengagement”

Reflections on the passing of Rabbi Shaar-Yashuv HaKohen zt”l: The Rabbi who heard the real reason Arik Sharon retreated from Gaza and expelled the Jewish communities from Katif and Northern Shomron.

David Bedein, 06/09/16 http://www.israelnationalnews.com/Articles/Article.aspx/19442

The death of the Chief Rabbi Emeritus of Haifa, Rabbi Shaar-Yashuv Cohen, brings to mind the most stirring episodes in the history of the modern State of Israel.

 

Rav Shaar-Yashuv Cohen, wounded in the battle for the Old City in Jerusalem, was the last Jewish civilian who left the Old City as it fell, carried on a stretcher into captivity…And Rav Shaar-Yashuv Cohen, who served as the deputy Mayor of Jerusalem in 1967, was given the honor of being the first civilian allowed to enter the Old City in Jerusalem at the time of its liberation during the six day war.

 

Yet there is yet another mission to Jerusalem which was little known.

 

In August, 2005, Rabbi Shaar-Yashuv Cohen traveled to Jerusalem to attempt a last minute plea for then Prime Minister Ariiel (Arik) Sharon to reconsider his plan to retreat from Gush Katif, which involved Israel’s obliteration of the 21 Jewish communities there, including 325 thriving Jewish farms and 86 synagogues and Jewish study centers. Rav Shaar-Yashuv Cohen told me at the time that the rapport between Arik Sharon and himself had lasted since his days of captivity in the 1948 war and that Rav Shaar-Yashuv was the only Rabbi who was ready to speak with him at the time.

 

Sharon gave a clear answer to the rabbi: “This is what the US is demanding that I do and I must do it.”

 

It did not matter that half of the 9,000 Jews who live in Gush Katif had nowhere to go, and that their relocation plans were still up in the air.

 

It did not matter that the Israeli government cannot offer more than two containers to each family to help them remove their possessions.

 

It did not seem to matter that the experts in Israel’s security establishment are warning that the result of Israel’s hasty retreat will be the creation of a new Islamic terror base.

 

Rav Shaar-Yashuv Cohen heard Sharon making it clear that he was under pressure from the US government and that is that, and that the myth of an autonomous Israeli policy in this regard had nothing to do with reality.

 

Indeed, one of the common assumptions was that the Sharon government’s plan to expel Jews from Gaza and northern Samaria, and unilaterally hand the area over to an independent Palestinian entity, had been an entirely autonomous Israeli decision.

 

But the US government was behind it all along.

 

In meetings with concerned American citizens, Danny Ayalon, Israeli ambassador to the US at the time, clearly stated that Sharon’s Retreat Plan was part of an overall Israeli-American agreement.

 

In late June, 2005, Ayalon met with representatives of the Orthodox Union, one of the largest contingents of American Orthodox Jews, and told them clearly that “Prime Minister Sharon is left with no choice. He is doing exactly what the US expects him to do.”

 

In an interview with the Jewish Journal of Greater Los Angeles, published on June 22nd, 2005, Ayalon reversed earlier Israeli government statements, saying that Israel does not expect the Palestinian Authority (PA) to dismantle terrorist infrastructure until after the planned expulsion. He mentioned that ending terrorism and anti-Israel incitement had been conditions Israel had demanded from the PA before carrying out the plan; however, Ayalon indicated that the agreement with the US was more important than an agreement with the PA.

 

The Israeli ambassador said, “Disengagement has to be viewed in the context of Israel-United States relations…. This pullout did not follow an agreement with the Palestinians, but it followed something which is much more important, an agreement with the United States. Disengagement is something that creates a common agenda between us and the United States.”

 

In the final interview given by Benyamin Netanyahu before his resignation from the Sharon government, he indicated that the current policy pursued by the government of Israel should be perceived as a threat to the security interests of the US and of all Western countries, since it created a terror base in Gaza, and since the Palestinian Authority incorporated the Hamas and other Palestinian terrorist organizations instead of dismantling them.

 

Yet, the directive of the US State Department remained unaltered: Prime Minister Ariel Sharon must dismantle and withdraw any and all Israeli presence from every Jewish community in the Katif district of Gaza by mid-August.

 

When Israel did go ahead with the retreat of the IDF and the expulsion of the Jewish communities from Katif and the Northern Shomron, Rav Shaar-Yashuv Cohen told me that he wanted to tell the world that this policy was implemented as a the result of a clear dictate to Arik Sharon issued by the government of the United States. This was not meant as rationalization for Sharon’s policy.

 

Few people want to hear the warnings of Rav Shaar-Yashuv Cohen that Israeli policy is often dictated from Washington.

MEDIA RELEASES SEPTEMBER 2005

 

SEPTEMBER 2005  https://womeningreen.org/media-releases-september-2005/

IS THERE A CONNECTION?

Letter from Ruth Matar (Women in Green) Jerusalem
Thursday, September 1, 2005
Dear Friends,

As you read this letter of mine, you are probably still deluged with reports of the horrific devastation wrought on the United States by Hurricane Katrina. Since Monday August 29, worldwide television seems to have featured nothing but images of the destruction of thousands of homes and businesses, streets, highways, and other infrastructure. Worst of all are images of continued human suffering. New Orleans Mayor C. Ray Nagin said the hurricane might have killed thousands in his city alone.

 

From the 16th to the 23rd of August, worldwide television featured continual scenes from Israel of weeping fathers, mothers and children forcibly dragged out of their homes in Gush Katif and Samaria and loaded onto buses by the Israeli Police and Army, upon the orders of the Ariel Sharon Government. The bulldozing and destruction of the homes, schools, farms, hot houses, and businesses continues. The decision to level all the synagogues in Gush Katif has still not begun. The disinterment of graves in Gush Katif is being done today.

 

Is there a connection between the two tragedies? Dr. James Vineyard, a pastor of a large church (3500 members) firmly believes that there is such a connection. Pastor Vineyard is a committed Christian-Zionist and passionately believes that President Bush’s “ROAD MAP PLAN” and Prime Minister Ariel Sharon’s “DISENGAGEMENT PLAN” are directly against the word of the G-d of Israel as expressed in the Judeo-Christian bible.

 

In response, Pastor Vineyard has written numerous letters to President Bush ever since he adopted the Saudi sponsored “ROAD MAP PLAN”.

 

Similarly, he has written many letters to Prime Minister Ariel Sharon, since he put forward his harmful, irresponsible “DISENGAGEMENT PLAN”. After literally hundreds of letters, Prime Minister Sharon finally answered Pastor Vineyard on August 16, 2005.

 

I am reproducing three important letters here in their entirety. Please read them carefully, as they shed light on the current situation:

1. Prime Minister Sharon’s letter to Pastor Vineyard – August 16, 2005
2. Pastor Vineyard’s reply to Prime Minister Sharon- August 31, 2005
3. Pastor Vineyard’s letter to President Bush- August 30, 2005

Prime Minister Sharon’s letter to Pastor Vineyard – August 16, 2005

Dear Pastor Vineyard,

Thank you for your recent letters.

I have dedicated my entire life to defending the security of the people of Israel and the State of Israel. For many years I have been engaged in settlement, establishing new communities and strengthening our hold on this land.

I believe that today, the best interest, welfare and security of the people of Israel necessitate a withdrawal from the Gaza Strip, an area where there is no chance of establishing a Jewish majority and which will clearly not be part of the State of Israel under any permanent settlement. We are now diverting most of our attention to areas which are vital to our existence- the Galilee, the Negev, Greater Jerusalem, the population centers and the security zones.

I initiated the Disengagement plan as I believe it is the best tool to generate fundamental change in the national situation of the State of Israel. A pullout from Gaza will have a tremendously positive effect on all aspects of life in Israel: the security, economy and standard of living in this country.

For the first time, the Palestinians will be presented with a clear choice: do they want to start building or continue destroying? Are they capable and willing to change or do they want to continue wallowing in hatred and incitement, condemning their people to a life of poverty and misery?

I am aware of the great sacrifice asked of the residents of the Gaza Strip and the four communities in Northern Samaria who must relocate, and genuinely feel their pain. However, as we have no desire to rule over millions of Palestinians, disengagement is necessary to allow us to embark on a new reality.

With best Wishes,

Sincerely,
Ariel Sharon

Pastor Vineyard’s reply to Prime Minister Sharon- August 31, 2005

Dear Mr. Sharon:

I have received your letter of August 16, 2005.  Thank you for answering.

However, with all due respect, Sir, I wish to take issue with you that Israel’s “best interests, welfare, and security” necessitated a withdrawal from Gaza and Shomron.  The pullout will not have “positive effects” on Israel’s security, economy, and standard of living.

For instance, Sir, I know for a fact that on April 30, 2003, you were “not advocating pulling out” from Gaza and Shomron after having defeated Amran Mitzna in the elections.

But, on that day, April 30, 2003, you were given the Condi Rice-authorized, Flynt Leverett-authored (in the Saudi-funded Jim Baker Public Policy Institute, Rice University) Road Map to Peace Plan.

When written, the Road Map went to the Saudis for their approval, then the European Union, then Tony Blair, then Colin Powell, then Bush, and from him, it came to your government on April 30, 2003.

Interesting, Sir, is the fact that the Road Map was given to you after Abu Mazen was sworn in as Prime Minister of the Palestinian Authority.

The next day, Sir, a British al-Qaeda martyr-bomber (aiming for those seventy-two dark-eyed virgins in the Islamic version of a Hollywood Whorehouse) blew up the Tel Aviv pub Mike’s Place as a fitting reaction to the new Road Map Policy.  Casualties?  Three were killed and over twenty wounded!

Sir, Islamic terror is not caused because of “Israel’s supposed occupier” position.  Ten weeks before you became a Jewish state (February 22, 1948), a triple truck bomb was detonated on Ben Yehuda Street.  Fifty-four people were killed with hundreds wounded.

The lesson?  It is obvious that Islamic terrorism is caused, not by the “desperation” of “occupation,” but by THE VERY THOUGHT OF A JEWISH STATE.
You say, Sir, that for the first time, the Palestinians will be presented with a clear choice:  building or destroying!

Mr. Prime Minister, I did not fall off a “cabbage truck” yesterday!  I have been studiously following events in Israel the entirety of my Christian experience, which now is forty-one years!  During that period of time, the Palestinians have been given “clear choices” hundreds of times.

And, Sir, I am aware that the USA continues to disregard realities in the Middle East, putting extremely heavy pressure on Jerusalem to go along with the Road Map and ignoring the Palestinians’ ongoing terrorist activities – the daily casualties among Israeli civilians and the firing of mortar shells and Qassam rockets at Israeli targets!

Sir, the Disengagement was a huge prize for Islamic terror.  In its wake, Sir, the Palestinians will not only achieve their strategic goals but will also reach a clear conclusion – TERROR PAYS!

They will get all the concessions Israel, the USA, the European Union, and the United Nations showers on them – billions and billions of dollars!  From those funds, they will reorganize themselves and rebuild their Islamic terror units; and the moment it is convenient, the homicide bombers will start blowing up buses; and Qassams will start falling on Askelon, Sderot, Tel Aviv, etc.

Your experience from Oslo ought to have taught you that this WRONG WAY – ROAD MAP “bodes” a future in which Islamic terror will be much worse.

Back, Sir, to the Spring of 2003, and to the presentation of the WRONG WAY – ROAD MAP Peace Plan – I know for a fact that on May 10, 2003, Secretary of State Colin Powell marched into Israel with a list of WRONG WAY – ROAD MAP “demands” requiring substantial Israeli concessions in return for only imprecise, ambiguous, and perplexing assurances from the Palestinians.
Israel was to cease “provocative” antiterrorist operations!
Israel was to release all Palestinian terrorists!  (How many are we – the USA – freeing from Guantanamo?) Israel was to permit Palestinian workers into Israel, including those who fit the age group of Islamic Terrorists!

Israel was to freeze all settlement activities! (I grew up, Sir, in the Panhandle of Texas.  As a boy, I was taught Texas History about how settlers came and settled the Panhandle!  Now, I live in Oklahoma!  Oklahoma History teaches how settlers settled this Indian Territory, and as a matter of fact, the Oklahoma University fight song, “BOOMER SOONER,” has to do with that settling!  But, since it “weren’t Jews,” it is OKAY in America!)

Sir, Secretary of State Powell (then) and Ms. Doctor Condi Rice (now) “rudely ignore” Israel’s reservations, and both insist on sticking to the original WRONG WAY – ROAD MAP dictates!

Israel has been put in a position by the USA to make “confidence-building measures” (HOGWASH, I SAY, SIR) unilaterally!  Israel is expected to unilaterally undertake these conciliatory measures demanded by the USA irrespective of Palestinian actions!

Sir, the “NEW REALITY” you speak about, which Disengagement allows you to embark on, is “SANCTIMONIOUS RHETORIC”!  It is “only” the advancement of Bush’s naive political interests in the Middle East.

I remember the day you met Abu Mazen (Arafat #2) on May 17, 2003.  Then, the Palestinians refused to live up to Washington’s promises that they would fight terrorism after significant withdrawals.

Your squabble with Arafat #2 on May 17, 2003, was immediately followed by the May 18, 2003, bombing of yet another bus in Jerusalem which killed seven and wounded twenty-four.

On my birthday, May 19, 2003, an Islamic female suicide bomber hit the shopping mall in Afula, leaving three dead and seventy wounded.

As I recall, Sir, exceptionally detailed intelligence left no doubt in Washington or Jerusalem that both bombings were directed from Arafat’s headquarters in Ramallah.

And yet, the IDF did not act because of intense U.S. pressure not to embarrass Bush by undermining the Road Map, even though the price would be paid with the lives and limbs of Israeli civilians.

After those events, in Maaleh Adumim, I told my friend, Mayor Benni Kashriel, that if I were Prime Minister of Israel, I would give a six-hour notice to folks in Ramallah and allow all the women and children to leave.

Then, I would drop a US Arsenal Daisy Cutter (25,000-pounder) on the thug of all thugs – Arafat – and his cronies!

Benni was so impressed by that statement that he attempted to get me an appointment with Sha’ul Mofaz so that I could tell him.

Mr. Prime Minister, I am your friend and not your enemy.  I am a Yedid and Chaver to the Jewish people.  I have no hidden agenda.  I just believe that G-d meant what He said when He said He would bless those who blessed the Jews.

Now, Sir, you question, “Do they [Islamic Palestinians] want to continue to wallow in hatred and incitement, condemning their people to a life of poverty and misery?”

Sir, in all the countries where Islam now holds sway, common, ordinary people are condemned to a life of poverty and misery!  THERE ARE NO EXCEPTIONS WHATSOEVER, SIR!

SUICIDE BOMBERS are standing in line to get at US forces in Iraq!  As we get closer to Congressional and Senatorial elections in 2006, the liberal, leftist US Media will find a Democrat Champion; and as American soldiers continue to die, they will turn the “no-stomach-for-the-fight” Americans against Bush’s Middle East efforts.

Israel will then be left holding the bag of their Disengagement, but in a much more dire situation!

This morning, our church marquee reads:  “ROAD MAP EVICTS 9000 JEWS FROM THEIR HOMES IN GAZA-SHOMRON!  KATRINA EVICTS ONE MILLION FROM THEIR HOMES IN USA.  CONNECTION?  GEN. 12:3 & JER. 31:35!”

Neither the US News Media nor the Bush Administration will listen to what we are declaring!  Please pay attention, Sir!

A True Yedid and Chaver of the Jews,

Pastor Vineyard’s letter to President Bush- August 30, 2005

Dear Mr. Bush:

You profess to be a believer in the Messiah, for Whom we owe the Jews.  And, you profess to read the Holy Bible (for which we owe the Jews) on a daily basis.

Sir, in the Holy Bible, in Jeremiah 31:35, we read:  “Thus saith the LORD, which giveth the sun for a light by day, and the ordinances of the moon and of the stars for a light by night, which divideth the sea when the waves thereof roar; The LORD of hosts is his name:”

Anytime, in our King James Version of the Bible, when the name LORD is in all upper case, then the LORD God of Israel’s name there is JEHOVAH.  Jehovah is the only true God.  All other gods, including “allah,” are false gods.

Now, Sir, as evidenced by many scholarly folks, our “common enemy” with Israel is Terrorism – the majority of which (99.99%) is directed “ideologically” by the Religion of Islam from Iran, Afghanistan, Syria, Iraq, etc.

Sir, Arafat #1 did direct and now Arafat #2 (Abu Mazen) is directing Islamic terrorism against the nation of Israel, and Osama and gang are directing Islamic terrorism against the USA.

Under the “Road MapDisengagement” Peace Plan, nine thousand Jewish people were “EVACUATED” from their homes in the Gush and Shomron.  The USA has already promised and given $50 million to Arafat #2.

Israel is asking for $3 billion in aid to implement the Road Map-Disengagement just in Gaza and Shomron.  Ms. Rice says, “Gaza is only the start.”  If that be true, there will be many more billions of dollars spent on this travesty of justice.

Now, here come THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL’S roaring, dividing waves (Jeremiah 31:35) named KATRINA, which causes the estimated evacuation of 1 million residents (480,000 in New Orleans; 384,000 along the Alabama coastline; and 140,000 in Mississippi).

The estimated cost of Katrina is up to $26 billion dollars in damages.  Is there a connection, Sir?  The LORD GOD OF ISRAEL has stirred up the Waves so that they roar.  Satan cannot do that.  Old allah cannot do that either!  It was the LORD GOD OF ISRAEL!

Soon, the Road Map will displace the Jewish residents adjacent to the Avraham Avinu neighborhood in Hebron.  MK Uzi Landau said this morning that the main problem facing Ariel Sharon is “his loss of legitimacy among members of his party.”

At the same time, Kofi Anan congratulated Sharon on his “courageous decision-making process” which led to the implementation of the Road Map-Disengagement plan.

Mr. President, you profess to be a Christian!  As a Christian, you know the Holy Bible teaches, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked:  for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.”

The LORD OF HOSTS has divided the Sea, and America has reaped for what we have done in Israel.  If we do not get off the path we are on, America will be the cause of the first democracy (Israel) suffering defeat at the hands of our “common Islamic enemy”!

Then, Sir, with all due respect, KATRINA will look like child’s play relative to what THE LORD GOD OF ISRAEL will send our way!

A man who LOVES THE LORD with all his heart, soul, mind, body, and strength and who realizes that as a Christian, we have no alternative other than being a blessing to the sons and daughters of Abraham, Isaac, Jacob, and King David,

Jim Vineyard

The question I asked in the beginning of this article, whether there is a connection between the human tragedies caused by Hurricane Katrina in the United States and the human tragedies caused by the deportation of Jews from Gush Katif, unfortunately must be answered in the affirmative.

 

The so called DISENGAGEMENT PLAN of Prime Minister Ariel Sharon was initiated in response to the “ROAD MAP” of President Bush- the plan to establish an Arab State in the Holy Land. As a consequence of that plan, 9,000 Jews were forcibly expelled from their homes in Gush Katif and Samaria.

 

A week after their expulsion the United States is struck by Hurricane Katrina, one of the worst disasters in American history. Hundreds of thousands of Americans have been evacuated from disaster areas in Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama and Florida and made homeless.

 

Is there a connection? Is this merely coincidence or is there cause and effect? It is up to each one us to answer this question!

 

We urge all our friends in America to call on the President of the United States to stop pressuring Israel to withdraw from the Land of Israel and to recognize that all the land promised in the Holy Bible to the descendants of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob belongs to the Jewish people.

 

With Blessings and Love for Israel,

A Haunting Visit To The Gush Katif Museum

By Devora Spitzer – 17 Tevet 5772 – January 11, 2012 https://www.jewishpress.com/indepth/front-page/a-haunting-visit-to-the-gush-katif-museum/2012/01/11/

In the doorway of the museum stand a haredi husband and wife. Nearby are young people from a kibbutz in the Galilee. They glanced at each other hesitantly and entered, walking quietly through the museum’s rooms, looking at the various exhibits.

 

The haredi husband and wife both admit they had never realized the enormity of the atrocity.

 

“We have never been shown these sights,” says one of the kibbutz members to his companion. “When they were expelled, I didn’t understand what they wanted. What’s the problem? They’ll get other homes elsewhere. Seeing these videos here help me understand what a great tragedy it was and how much compassion we should feel for them.”

 

Near the museum’s side entrance, high-school kids crowd around two pictures. One asks, “Did you ever realize it was so terrible?” Another replies, “I never paid much attention to it. I thought the residents were just crybabies. Now I’m starting to understand that the injustice done to them cries out to the very heavens. Only now do I realize their expulsion brought about the continuous Kassam rocket attacks we’re getting from Gaza.”

* * * * *

The Gush Katif Museum in Jerusalem was established by Rabbi Shalom Dov Wolpo, head of the Rambam Hashalem Torah Institute, centered in the town of Beitar Illit. Rabbi Wolpo has authored many highly regarded works of halacha, including two that research the halachic prohibition of forfeiting territories of the Holy Land to non-Jews.

 

At the time of the so-called Gaza disengagement, he and his colleagues invested tremendous effort in attempting to derail the expulsion of nearly 10,000 Jews. As the disengagement was implemented and while the fires were still burning, they resolved to establish this museum. But their resolution took three years to come to fruition.

 

The museum’s early visitors, back in 2008, were mostly from the national religious segment of Israel’s population. But gradually this changed. Both haredim and secular leftists had remained largely ignorant of what actually happened to Gush Katif’s residents. As they heard about the museum, more and more started visiting and were deeply affected by the exhibits.

 

“The people of Israel have been experiencing disillusionment,” says Rabbi Wolpo. “The Kassam rocket attacks, the Hamas ascent to power, the revolutionary changes in surrounding Arab nations, the enormous danger from terror organizations based in the Sinai desert – all these have brought Israelis, including many who once supported the expulsion, to rethink their positions. Now they’re opposed to further expulsions of Jews from Judah and Samaria, God forbid. I’m sure the museum has played an important role in this, because when people visit, they start to understand what really happened there.”

* * * * *

The museum’s curator, Shlomo Wasserteil, welcomes me. Six and a half years have passed since he was expelled from his home in the Gush Katif town of Ganei Tal, but he has not yet become accustomed to his new situation.

 

“For thirty years I lived in Gush Katif,” he says. “I had one of the world’s largest flower hothouses, with fifty employees. We exported flowers to Europe for tens of millions of dollars. After we were expelled, I became unemployed. My wife and I were both at home with nothing to do. It plunged me into a terrible psychological state. I couldn’t understand why they had done this to us. These wounds haven’t healed. At times I even sank into deep depression.”

 

Four years after the expulsion, Shlomo was offered this position at the museum. Now he feels that at least he can do something so that the expulsion won’t be forgotten. “When Rabbi Wolpo established this museum, he called the artist Yankele Klein and told him, ‘Set up a museum.’ He had no funding, and incurred vast debts. But it all seems to have been worthwhile.

 

“Tens of thousands visit here – ordinary Jews, educators and their students, Knesset members and government ministers, soldiers and their officers, members of European parliaments, and U.S. congressmen. And after their visits, something happens in the minds of all of them. Even left-wing Knesset members, with tears in their eyes, have written in the visitors’ book, ‘Never again!’ ”

* * * * *

We pass through the rooms. Pictures document the history of Gush Katif, revealing that ever since the time of the Hasmoneans, of Chanukah story fame, there was a continuous Jewish presence in Gaza and its environs. This continued until the terrible 1929 Arab pogroms. Only after the 1967 Six-Day War did Jews return. They built thriving communities, never dreaming that one day they would be cruelly uprooted by their own government.

 

In February 2001, the first rocket was fired at Gush Katif. At the time, the news was widely featured in the Israeli and international media. But later, if news accounts of rocket attacks appeared at all, they were relegated to the back pages.

 

Two months passed. One day a 15-month-old baby named Ariel was playing outside his home in the town of Atzmona. Three rockets fell on the town, and one sent pieces of shrapnel into Ariel’s brain and body, injuring him grievously. His mother, hanging laundry nearby, was also wounded.

 

A picture of Ariel hangs in the museum. Now a big boy, he is still healing from his wounds. “Everyone helped in his rehabilitation,” explains Rabbi Yigal Kirschenzaft, who is also visiting the museum, “and now he’s studying in a regular class.”

 

For many years Rabbi Kirschenzaft ran the Chabad House in Neve Dekalim, the largest town in the Gush. “I lived in Gush Katif for twenty-four years,” he says simply, leaving no need for further explanation.

 

“When Yigal first visited here,” Shlomo recalls, “he simply couldn’t conceal his deep emotion. Every picture ‘spoke’ to him, and he couldn’t stop explaining every picture’s background. Locating his house on the aerial picture of Neve Dekalim, he pointed it out, saying, ‘Every house in this picture arouses memories. I knew the map of Gush Katif like the palm of my hand!’ ”

 

A month before the expulsion, Yigal was injured by shrapnel from a rocket attack. Pointing to the cemetery of the Arab city of Khan Yunis, he explains, “From here they used to fire rockets at us regularly. That morning I was standing in the middle of my town with a friend from Los Angeles, and a mortar fell on the car park and injured us.”

 

More than 5,000 rockets fell on Gush Katif. Those attacks, along with so many other terror acts and shootings, claimed the lives of dozens of Jews; hundreds more were injured. The dead were buried in the sand of Gush Katif, but even they were dragged out of their repose when the Israeli government carried out the disengagement.

 

Rabbi Shai Gefen, one of the museum’s founders and directors, gives me the honor of lighting the eternal lamp perpetuating the memory of Gush Katif’s martyrs, whose names and pictures are exhibited in the Memorial Corner.

 

“Despite all the attacks,” says Rabbi Gefen, “the idealism of the residents would not let them leave. The terror could not convince them to give in, because you don’t give in when this concerns the Holy Land. They always insisted that if they wouldn’t be located there, the rockets would be fired at the population centers in the heart of Israel.”

* * * * *

“Sometimes visitors surprise us,” says Shlomo. “We might have expected only right-wing people to come. But ever since it opened, the museum has attracted visitors from the entire political spectrum, including many media figures, who cover the museum in a sympathetic manner.”

 

On the day the government established a commission of inquiry to investigate the treatment of the Gaza evacuees, Yaakov Achimeir of the Israel Broadcasting Authority paid a visit. In an article for the Israel Hayom newspaper he wrote, “Before my visit, I thought I would soon be subjected to a barrage of acrimonious ideological propaganda. But no! What I saw consisted of pictures, facts illustrated by modest graphic design, an exhibition of paintings, and videos of the evacuation of Gush Katif. The museum has the atmosphere of an art gallery, with revealing documentation that leaves one with a most painful sensation.”

 

An elderly Jewish couple examines the exhibits, groaning audibly. “Where are you from?” I ask. “From Sderot,” they reply. “This is how [then-Prime Minister] Ariel Sharon brought us to this great pitfall. We, who have endured years of Kassam attacks, understand better than anyone else how this entire operation was a bad joke right from the start! Sharon knew the Arabs will never change.”

 

They find it difficult to endure the museum’s pictures. When they see, in the wing called the Black Room, a picture of soldiers dragging an elderly Jew from the synagogue of Kfar Darom, the woman nearly collapses, crying out, “How could they possibly do this?” Her husband tries to calm her.

 

Shlomo has his own memories of that terrible time. A week before the evacuation, two New York Times reporters visited him at home. During their conversation they asked, “Haven’t you packed yet?” He told them he hadn’t. “I won’t do the executioner’s job for them,” he said. “Don’t you believe the day of expulsion will come?” they persisted. “No,” he had answered confidently. “I can’t believe it.”

 

A year later, the reporters came back, this time to his decrepit mobile home at Yad Binyamin. “You said then that you couldn’t believe it,” they reminded him. “What do you say now?” He replied, “Jews answer one question with another. Let me ask you: If you had been told, after the expulsion, that our worst enemies would gain control of the Gaza Strip, would you have believed it?” They had no answer.

 

“Who would have believed that hundreds of Kassam rockets would be fired from the Gaza Strip at Israeli towns all the way up to Beersheba?” Shlomo asks rhetorically. “Who would believe that our best youth, expelled from Gush Katif, would have to return there to fight in Operation Cast Lead? My own son was drafted into one of the elite units and entered the Gaza Strip during the war. After returning unharmed, he told us, ‘I got a “whiff” of our old home.’ ”

* * * * *

Two years ago, on Chanukah, the late Rabbi Menachem Porush, who had been a long-time Knesset member, visited the museum. He was 95 years old at the time and in a wheelchair. As he was led through the rooms, he burst into tears. After his two-hour visit, he wrote in the visitors’ book, “What can I say or speak? The feelings experienced in this museum, which commemorates the life of 25 flourishing Jewish settlements in the land of Israel, are indescribable. The houses destroyed, the families expelled, the life shattered for thousands of wretched families who have been cruelly plucked from their communities and land, and thrown into mobile homes until today – without livelihood, homes, or the wherewithal to support their families as they had until this cruel expulsion.”

 

My visit is coming to an end and I ask Rabbi Wolpo what the museum is doing now to help the evacuees.

 

“Many of the expelled families have already used up all the compensation received from the government,” Rabbi Wolpo replies. “They’re paying the bank a mortgage for their destroyed home in Gush Katif, together with high rent for their present leaky mobile homes in Nitzan or Yad Binyamin. Many simply don’t have money to buy bread.

 

“That’s why we established a Kindness Center to supply food baskets for these families for Shabbat and Yom Tov. It also helps their children get school bags and other school supplies.”

 

On a table I notice an eight-page multi-colored bulletin under the name Eretz Yisrael Shelanu – “Our Land of Israel.”

 

“Whoever observes the results of the previous withdrawals, and considers the present revolutionary upsets in the Arab world, yet still speaks of further expulsions from Judah and Samaria and the establishment of a terrorist state in the heart of this land – is either insane or is an agent of our enemies,” Rabbi Wolpo tells me.

 

“That’s why we publish a biweekly bulletin which gives the true picture of our security situation, our right to the entire Land of Israel, and the ways to reach a true peace. Every two weeks, 100,000 copies are disseminated throughout Israel. The bulletins are snatched up like hot cakes. If we could afford it, we would publish it every week and could easily distribute many hundreds of thousands of copies.”

 

I notice a page in the bulletin about “A Day of Fun for Children.”

 

Rabbi Gefen explains, “The children of Gush Katif, expelled from their homes, and experiencing every day their families’ unfortunate situation, have become broken in spirit. It’s our duty to encourage them to hope for better times. The children of Judah and Samaria as well are deeply afraid that if a Palestinian state is established, God forbid, their settlements will be uprooted. So we arrange for them, at least three times a year, a “Day of Fun.” We rent an amusement park for the kids to enjoy themselves, and we invite them all to come with their parents, at our expense. They enjoy themselves and forget about their troubles.”

 

I ask Rabbi Wolpo how the museum and its many projects are maintained.

 

“Without help from the public, it’s difficult to maintain and expand these vital activities,” he says. “Many Jews around the world believe in the integrity of the Land of Israel and identify with the themes expressed here at the museum, in our bulletin and at the Kindness Center. We’re sure they’ll offer help by becoming partners in this important cause.”

 

He adds that plans are underway for a dinner in Brooklyn on February 22 in honor of the museum and its activities, with the participation of important guests. Full details are still being ironed out. He urges all interested individuals to e-mail him (wolpo@012.net.il) or visit www.sos-israel.com or www.gushkatif.022.co.il for more information.

Irrerversible damage caused by Gush Katif destruction continues

The August 2005 expulsion of Jews from Gush Katif helped put Hamas in power, worsened the security of Israelis, and contributed to the isolation of Israel internationally (Edmund Sanders)

Arye Yizhaki 23July2018, 8:04 AM (GMT+3) Updated: 24July2018, 10:45 PM  https://www.israelnationalnews.com/news/351101

Irrerversible damage caused by Gush Katif destruction continues

Gush Katif

What are the results of the August 2005 Gaza Expulsion that began right after the 9th of Av fast? The operation,  euphemistically known as the “Disengagement,” saw over  8000 Jews were expelled from homes they had lived in for decades in the Gaza Strip after  having moved there with the Israeli government’s encouragement. It was a one-sided move that resulted in  their homes being destroyed, synagogues torched and millions of dollars worth of profitable greenhouses given to the Gazans purposefully wrecked.

 

The terrorist state of Hamas, which has turned terror from a tactical threat into a strategic one, was established in the Gaza Strip in June 2007. The entire southern and central region of Israel became an accessible target for missile strikes, including the security control centers (the Ministry of Defense),  Ben-Gurion International Airport, Sde Dov airport, and other important strategic targets, including the Central Region.

 

In the first decade since the expulsion from Gush Katif, the IDF has been forced to carry out hundreds of anti-terror operations, including four massive operations against terrorist bases, the scope of which only continues to grow.

 

Operation “Warm Winter”: February-March 2008.

 

Operation “Cast Lead”: December 2008 – January 2009

 

Operation “PIllar of Defense” : November 2012 (8 days)

 

Operation “Protective Edge”: July 8 – August 26, 2014 (51 days of war)

 

During this period, 9,000 Kassam and Grad rockets and mortar shells were fired at Israeli targets. Hundreds of explosive devices were detonated; 115 soldiers and civilians were killed, and over 700 were injured. The fighting caused serious economic damage to the Israeli economy and the communities surrounding the Gaza Strip were partially abandoned.

 

A fifth confrontation began in May 2018 and has been going on for three months, during which two new types of terror were launched – the processions of return and the burning kites terror. It is too early to sum up damages.

 

2. The Arab Jihad movement has received a significant tailwind – the latest fighting has proven that the State of Israel finds it difficult to stand up to the “resistance” (the “Muqama”), and it might even be forced to withdraw from territories liberated in 1967. The next targets of Jihad are Yehuda, Shomron (Judea, Samaria) and East Jerusalem.

 

3. It has become clear that that democracy in Israel is a conditional democracy, and a cruel, determined and cunning dictator [referring here to Arik Sharon, Likud prime minister] can use this “democracy” for his own personal ends, even though he has no majority in the nation. As prime minister, he wanted the “Disengagement,”  his personal branchild, and rammed it through, firing ministers who opposed it and ignoring a Likud referendum that did the same.

 

4. The IDF suffered severe post-traumatic distress after the forced destruction of Gush Katif. The soldiers were forced to fight against their brothers which proved deeply traumatic. This refers especially to the soldiers who participated in the expulsion itself. This was not a military mission in the defense of Israel, but a political mission of hatred against the ‘settlers’.

 

5. Some 8,500 Israeli citizens who were “salt of the earth” – the spearhead of Zionism – were severely affected. Their homes and the fabric of their lives were destroyed; And despite all promises made by the ruling government, more than 20 percent of them have not received a permanent residence or proper employment after 13 years. The expulsion was a grave and shameful act of injustice, treachery, and an unforgivable crime against humanity.

In Summary: The expulsion and destruction of Gush Katif was an act of serious betrayal of the Jewish people and the basic values of Zionism. The Disengagement Law must be annulled immediately, and a new law should be enacted that will establish that its initiators, the “Sharon Farm Group” should be prosecuted, and their crimes not subject to the Statute of Limitations.

JerusalemCats Comments: This post is before the liberation of Russian Ukraine on 24February2022

Russia, Ukraine, Israel, and the Coming Invasion

What does the current war between Russia and Ukraine tell us about Gog and Magog and the coming invasion of Israel? What can God-fearing people do right now?

David Ben Horin Posted on 01February2022 https://breslev.com/3069572/

Russia, Ukraine, Israel, and the Coming Invasion

Russia, Ukraine, Israel, and the Coming Invasion

“When you are about to go into battle, every day is like Yom Kippur.” Says my good friend Eli.

A veteran of both the IDF and Chabad, Eli is a Torah Jew and IDF combat fighter who has been in every Israeli war for the last 15 years.

“The guys in my unit are an unbelievable mix of Israeli society. We are secular who became religious, religious who became secular, and everything in between. The most amazing sight comes each morning when the soldier with the tattoo on his arm shows the soldier with the black kippa how to recite the morning prayers properly.”

“I always carry a tzedakah box in our tank. It’s such a wonderful thing. The Torah tells us that charity protects us from death. It’s a mitzvah we can all agree on. Before a battle, everybody puts a coin in. Baruch Hashem, everybody comes back.”

“Thank G-d, the same cannot be said for our enemies.” He says with a smile.

Rabbi Mizrachi says, “There are no atheists in a hospital.” He goes on his ‘rounds’ often, visiting Jews that have asked him to come. When he finishes his visit, he cannot walk three steps outside the room before a patient begs him for a Blessing that Hashem should give him health.

We live stable and ordered lives. When a situation changes that we have no control over it, the uncertainty makes it Yom Kippur for everyone.

The Day of Judgment

For the Ukrainians who woke up to bloodshed, Yom Kippur is today.

They have an opportunity to pray to Hashem from the deepest place of their hearts, with focus and intention greater than most of us can only dream of.

In King David’s time, when Israel went to war, the Kohanim would rush to the front lines. They would go where arrows and heavy stones were being fired at them at velocities five times that of a tank.

Only under enemy fire could they pray with such intensity, because they didn’t know what would happen next. They could pray with all their helpless hearts to our True King and Protector.

Ukraine is at Our Doorstep

Don’t waste this opportunity.

Russia didn’t just run into Ukraine. Vladimir Putin, the master tactician, is way too smart for that. He massed his troops gradually. He waited to see what NATO would do.

He put his troops into attack formation, ready to pounce. Putin waited to see how the world would react.

The empty threats of the civilized world became his green light to invade.

The West literally said, “Russia will not go it alone unless Russia decides to go it alone.”

Had Putin believed that attacking Ukraine would lead to a battle with America or Europe, things would have been a lot different.

At any moment, America can still get involved.

China can get involved.

The rest of Europe can get involved.

Russian retaliation will not be against Ukraine; it will be aimed at the free world. Ukraine sits alongside Serbia, where the fallout of a political assassination got so out of hand that it led to World War I.

Seize this Chance to Do our Bit

Rabbi Avigdor Miller tells us to be grateful for the morning peace.

Every day we wake up with enough food in the fridge for breakfast. We wake up with the security that there will be no enemy soldiers bombing our homes or local secret police pounding on our doors.

It’s a blessing that what we had yesterday we still have today. It’s a blessing to feel that there will be no robbers, foreign invaders, or secret police outside our gates, ready to take us away.

Every day we wake up to peace.

It’s our chance to recite Modeh Ani Lifanecha (I gratefully thank You) with great enthusiasm. We can say in our own language, “Thank You, Hashem, for giving me peace today. Thank You for letting me wake up to enough food and safety to serve Your Will with a tranquil heart.”

We can see what every Ukrainian stands to lose and tell Hashem “Thank You” that we still have it.

How Bad Can It Get?

Over the past century, we Jews have woken up to nothing more than once.

In 1923, the Jews of Russia lost what little they had when Stalin seized everything. A decade later, the Jews of Germany, a very wealthy community, lost everything overnight. Their careers, businesses, assets that they had built up over a century were confiscated in a moment. A decade later, the same happened to the Jews of France and most of Europe.

Fifteen years later, after the establishment of the State of Israel, the half a million Jews in Arab lands had everything ripped from them. Thirty years later, it happened again to the Jews of Persia. Fifteen years after that, those Jews leaving the Soviet Union could only do so with what they could carry on their backs.

Everything we have in our life is a gift from our Creator. He gives it to us every moment. He can take it back or give it to someone else at any time.

Understanding how fickle our comforts are, we can look to Ukraine and be inspired to make heartfelt repentance. We can work on eliminating our Loshon Hara. We can strive to use our body the way Hashem commands by improving our Shmirat HaBrit. We can pray with more focus.

We can do it knowing that the sword of exile, poverty, and sickness hangs over us no less than they do every man, woman, and child of Ukraine.

The Miracle for Israel and the Jews

God has his eyes upon the Land from the first day of the year to the last. (Devarim 11:12)

We should get on our knees and thank our Creator for what He has done for Israel and His Jews.

The Americans tried to sign a treaty that brought belligerent nuclear weapons to Israel’s back door.

As part of his strategy, Putin is putting Russian nukes into Belarus, which is a thousand kilometers closer to Western Europe. He hopes to place nukes inside Ukraine, which borders Hungary. He is mulling a Russian withdrawal from a series of treaties obligating Russia not to point its nuclear arsenal at America.

Instead of America placing dangerous nuclear weapons aimed at Israel, Hashem is pointing dangerous atomic weapons at America.

This conflict also continues a new exciting development: Donor Israel.

Instead of asking the Jews of the diaspora to help Jewish communities in need, Israel is doing it directly. We are lending to other countries without borrowing.

The world is even considering appointing Binyamin Netanyahu as its emissary to end the fighting.

The signs are clear: Israel is slowly rising to re-assume its role in the world.

Even in tragedy and chaos, the message of Redemption is clear.

The West gave Putin the green light to invade Ukraine with empty rhetoric.

With His Divine protection and material blessing over the Holy Land, Hashem is giving every Jew the green light to invade Israel.

Interesting Map Shows Countries Who Support Western Govt Sanctions Against Russia vs Those Who Do Not

March 28, 2022
Sundance reporting for Conservative Treehouse
https://wwwp-lives.blogspot.com/2022/03/interesting-map-shows-countries-who.html

An enterprising journalist from Bolivia [Twitter Link] mapped the countries that support the sanctions against Russia (yellow) versus the countries that are not participating in the western sanctions against Russia (grey).  The image provides a visual reference to consider our previous discussions about the cleaving of the global economy between two overarching ideologies.

 

The countries in yellow have sanctioned Russia. The countries in gray have not sanctioned Russia.

Ollie Vargas-tweet-25March2022-The countries in yellow have sanctioned Russia

In my estimation this intentional global cleaving, using the opportunity created by the Ukraine crisis, is going to be the major story of this year.  This global splitting can be looked at in multiple ways, but the overarching story is the ramifications of two global trade relationships.

 

The western alliance (in the yellow above), has forced the world to reevaluate the dollar as the global trade currency, by denying Russia and their trade partners the ability to use the financial mechanisms under western control. To work around the sanctions, Russia is working on new financial systems to sell oil and farm products in non-dollar currencies.  There is also a possibility the petro-dollar, for the global trade of oil, might be dropped.

 

Russia is part of OPEC.  While many countries develop their own resources, OPEC sells the majority of oil the rest of the world consumes as the basis for their economic engine.  One way to look at the global cleaving is to look at the way energy is viewed.

 

Two world groupings.  One group, oil-based energy (traditional) – let’s label them the RED GROUP (grey on map), and one group GREEN energy (the build back better plan, yellow on map).  It is not accidental these two groups hold similar internal geopolitical views and perspectives, hence, their alignment with the sanctions against Russia.

 

♦ The important part to see is… if this cleaving continues, there are going to be two sets of nations with two structurally different economies. A red group and a green group.

 

These two groups are going to end up in competition with each other.  It is as inevitable as sunrise, if you can see this cleaving I am talking about.

 

Now, think about the economic system of trade that exists between the Red and Green groups.  There has to be a way for them to exchange value if they are going to purchase from and sell to each other.

 

Additionally, and this is *key*, the Red group is going to have a strong strategic advantage in production costs.  The Red group is going to be using oil, coal and gas (fossil fuels), which are abundant, cheap and the infrastructure is already in place.

 

The Green group is going to be at a strong disadvantage, at least for a generation or two, as the costs associated with the production of goods and systems is going to be much more expensive to operate, as the transition into Build Back Better sustainable or renewable energy takes place.

 

In the macro view, stuff from the Red group is going to be cheap.  The exact same stuff from the Green group is going to be more expensive.

 

If you are still with me, hopefully, you can see how this is all coming together.

♦ The western debt incurred during COVID-19 is a problem.  However, this debt diminishes with inflation.  A $20 trillion debt is not as big a problem when bread costs $100/loaf and people are earning $50,000 a month.   The Green group is entering into this position.  In this position, the BlackRock approach of physical ownership of real estate and physical stuff is way more important than holding money or dollars which will immediately lose value.

Physical ownership of stuff is important.

♦ It is likely, based on the economic alignment, the Green group will be forced to assemble under one currency (set of financial valuations), and the Red group will then assemble under their own currency (set of financial valuations).  My hunch is the western group (green) will use a digital currency.

Once both sets of currencies are established, then trade between the Red group and Green group can be determined based on a central valuation.  In the Red group, a 20″ tire is worth 100 red bucks.  In the Green group, a 20″ tire is worth 150 digital green bucks.  Two vaults and two exchanges.

 

In order for all of this to come together, the population needs to be shifted in their perspective of money and material value.   That takes us to where this conversation started by Blackrock and the World Economic Forum: “owning nothing and being happy” is akin to “prizing experiences over possessions.”

 

The Western financial mega-system operators (Blackrock, Vanguard) are going to own the physical assets, and the people will live under that ownership. The western construct of a modern serfdom.  In the Red group, that socioeconomic system (essentially) already exists.

 

Last point, it is always important to remember the ultimate goal of the ‘climate change’ promotors is not an energy system that changes the global climate. The goal of the ‘climate change’ group is to create a carbon trading system; a new financial mechanism (a global tax program) to control human activity on a world-wide basis.

 

As a consequence, when we look at the fracturing of the global energy marketplace, it is worth viewing the Green group through the prism of their carbon trading scheme.  As with the vaccination passport leading to a digital identity, the carbon trade program needs a similar unique id for carbon attribution.

The countries in yellow have sanctioned Russia. The countries in gray have not sanctioned Russia.

The countries in yellow have sanctioned Russia. The countries in gray have not sanctioned Russia.

Donbass: I’m Alive! | Mariupol survivors of Ukrainian attacks find shelter

Posted 15November2022 iEarlGreyTV: These are the NAZI Terrorist that Biden and the Neocon Democrats have installed in Ukraine and are supporting. Thank you, Victoria Nuland for the needless death and destruction, May you roast in Hell.

“It’s the Azov battalion. They forced people out of their houses and into basements. Then tanks started shooting from here, from there,” a Mariupol resident shared her story with the film crew. Over 400,000 people in Mariupol had to go underground because they couldn’t leave the city. The film tracks stories of people who had to survive in Mariupol under Ukrainian shelling. Sheltering in cellars and watching Ukrainian tanks firing at residential buildings. They have all gone through hell and back. Now they’re happy to be alive and hope for a new beginning.

A Russian military officer drives across shelled Mariupol to distribute humanitarian aid. A volunteer from Texas, who came to Donbass eight years ago, as he refused to believe American propaganda, helps reunite families separated during the evacuation. A hieromonk who was taken hostage by Azov members and tortured miraculously survived and dedicated his life to studying the origins of nazism in Ukraine. A courageous OB-GYN who runs a maternity ward helped give birth to 25 women during the bombing.

Hundreds of people who got a chance to be evacuated lost connections with the rest of their families who stayed. With no cell service and internet connection, their only hope was to get a word through Russian soldiers who would find relatives and friends and relay their messages.

IMF Warns Ukraine: Fight For The East Or No Money


IMF approved the $17bn tranched loan to Ukraine last night, Gazprom gets paid; Ukraine gets its cash; and the door’s wide open for the US and EU to pour more ‘controlling influence’ into the divided nation… Except there’s one thing:

  • IF UKRAINE GOVERNMENT LOSES EFFECTIVE CONTROL OVER EAST OF COUNTRY, $17 BLN IMF BAILOUT WOULD NEED TO BE REDESIGNED

Which, roughly translated, appears to mean go to war with pro-Russian forces (and thus Russia itself if Putin sees his apparent countrymen in trouble) or you don’t get your money! Some other items of note include:

  • IMF URGES UKRAINE TO REACH PRICE ACCORD WITH GAZPROM BY SEPT
  • UKRAINE INFLATION MAY JUMP TO 16.2% THIS YEAR, IMF SAYS
  • RUSSIA’S GAS PRICE INCREASE MAY WEAKEN HRYVNIA: IMF STAFF

Fast Forward to Fascism [Ukraine today]

Posted 12November2022 iEarlGreyTV:

The nationalist movement in Ukraine didn’t just happen; it took years to build. It’s been growing for years, nurtured by western curators and supported by western funds. By the beginning of the Maidan, an entire network of neo-nazi units had already been up and running in Ukraine, but the Ukrainian government didn’t prosecute them. Ready and able military and terrorist units dispersed and showed up at anti-Maidan meetings in Ukraine’s cities. The years 2019 and 2020 saw meetings and protests in Kiev demanding the denial of special status for the DNR and LNR breakaway regions.

One of its main goals was to form an ideology that would dehumanize Russians and break all ties that existed for decades before. Initially, Russians weren’t seen as a minority in Ukraine, but the anti-Russian sentiment gradually became overwhelming. Nationalists have been taught how to lead a war on social media, eventually launching a guided communication battle against the Russian people.

Stepan Bandera was the head of the Ukrainian nationalist organisation in 1929. In 1934, the Gestapo accepted the Berlin chapter of the organization — he organized terrorist acts, killing officials. In 1941, the Ukrainian nationalist organization was responsible for the biggest Jewish pogrom in Lvov, killing about 7,000 people. Yet, in 2010, Stepan Bandera was pronounced a national hero, with torch-lit marches in his honour ever since.

Ecco cosa nascondono i tatuaggi del Battaglione Azov

23 Maggio 2022 – 08:57

Il ministero della Difesa russo mostra le immagini dei prigionieri del Battaglione Azov, accusato di simpatie neonaziste. Abbiamo analizzato i tatuaggi dei militari ucraini: cosa rappresentano

23May2022 https://www.ilgiornale.it/news/mondo/ecco-cosa-nascondono-i-tatuaggi-battaglione-azov-2036447.html ]

The soldiers of the Azov Battalion they are called one by one. A nod from the Russian soldiers, who ask
the surrendered to lift their shirt and put on their underwear, is enough. The men of the Kremlin scan the militiamen in search of tattoos that, in some way, recall the Nazi symbolism. And they find many.
After all, the president Vladimir Putin – announcing the start of the “special operation”, as the Kremlin called it – he promised he would “denazify“ Ukraine.
And these images, released by the Ministry of Defense and aimed primarily at the Russian people, prove it. What the soldiers of Moscow are fighting is a war against the new Nazism.

 

The most common symbol is that of the Battalion, wrapped in the yellow and blue colors of the Ukrainian flag. As we have already explained, it is the Wolfsangel the love of the wolves, which was the first coat of arms of the party founded by Adolf Hitler then also entered the iconography of SS.

 

Other soldiers wear the black Sun used before by the Thule company one of the esoteric organizations that contributed to the thought and rise of Nazism, and then from the Schutzstaffel, the aforementioned SS.

Another frequently recurring element is the Totenkrof, the “death’s head”. It is a skull from whose nape emerge some crossbones. Starting in 1809, this symbol was widely used in German military and political iconography. But it is during the Third Reich that the use of the Totenkrof reaches its peak. It is used by the SS and, in particular, by SS-Totenkopfverbände. Founded in 1936, after the annexation of Austria by Germany, Hitler entrusted them with the custody of the concentration camps.

Runes are widely used by Battalion soldiers. In particular the Ôþalan, literally “heritage, inheritance”. Symbol of iron, in ancient times it was worn to protect against trolls and, in general, evil influences.  Under the Nazis, this rune was used by the Seventh Mountain Division “Prinz Eugen”, a unit of the SS that was used on the Yugoslav front during the Second World War.

In addition to the Ôþalan, some soldiers of the Battalion were branded with the Lebensrune used by the SS used in the (insane) Lebensborn eugenics project strongly supported and supported by Heinrich Himmler, to defend the Aryan race. Tattooed swastikas seem widespread. And it is hard to believe – as stated by Michail Pirog, chief of the 4th Azov Battalion stationed in Zaporizhzhia – whether it is just an “ancient Slavic, pan-European, even Indian symbol”.

Also because there are those who have had the Sigrunea symbol that indicated the sun but which was then associated with victory (in German Siegin fact) and then at the initials of the SS. These images were recorded outside the Azovstal factory, as can be guessed from the background and the long avenue behind the soldiers of the Azov Battalion.

However, the Russian Defense Ministry has also released other photos, taken in an indoor location, impossible to identify. So we don’t know if they are pictures of Azov prisoners or not. But they are significant, as long as they are taken with some caution (like all the images that come from this conflict). In the first weeks of the war, in fact, various Russian media released some carefully edited videos and photographs in which Nazi flags and copies of the Mein Kampf, strangely intact
among the incinerated walls. More recently, the same media also showed a helmet, fresh from green paint, on which the Sigrune of the SS stands out. It is difficult to say where the documentation ends and where the propaganda. Having made this necessary premise, among the frame widespread by the Russians we see a soldier with a large tattoo on his
chest that depicts a hooded man who seems to be holding a torch or, perhaps, a Molotov cocktail. A scene depicting a stadium curve (a man with a megaphone is also present) or an image celebrating the Euromaidan? Impossible to say. But one cannot fail to notice the great one Celtic cross that dominates the chest of man. A little further up, two digits: 14 And 88. The site ofAnti defamation league explains the meaning of these numbers: “It is a combination of two popular white supremacist number symbols. 14 is short for the slogan 14 words: we must guarantee the existence of our people and a future for white children. “88 instead represents the exclamation Heil Hitler (the H is in fact the eighth letter of the alphabet).

Yet another soldier preferred to immortalize Hitler, with swastika in the arm. Another one, Stepan Bandera the
leader of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists (Oun) who collaborated – in a very turbulent way – with the Nazis against the Soviets and was one of the ones responsible for the extermination of Jews in Ukraine.

Then there is a last vein that the Azov soldiers have decided to represent on their bodies, that one esoteric,
obviously also present in the runes that have, in fact, a hidden meaning. Some militiamen have tattoos with goats, mythological animals and pentacles which recall Satanism. After all, Nazism, even before being a political movement, was first of all an (esoteric) culture born in the undergrowth of German circles between the end of the nineteenth century and the beginning of the twentieth century, as the political scientist Giorgio has documented in detail.
Gauls.

Putin is not fighting to “denazify” Ukraine. Just look at the numbers to figure it out. The Ukrainian army can count on about 200,000 troops, which can reach 900,000 if we consider reservists. The Azov Battalion, which in 2014 had a few hundred followers, today can count on a few thousand men. A minimal percentage if you compare it to the armed forces of Kiev. Yet the tattoos on the body of Ukrainian volunteers demonstrate the link between them and the Third Reich. A bond that, in these eighty days of conflict, has been forgotten for too long to justify their resistance to the troops of Moscow.

Interview with a Stormtrooper

Published by on https://thedreizinreport.com/2022/07/01/interview-with-a-stormtrooper/

Star Wars Stormtrooper

Star Wars Stormtrooper

If the Star Wars rebels took as prisoner an Imperial stormtrooper clone, and sat him down for an on-camera interview, without his armor, with a cigarette, he would come across much like this.

 

Click to download PDF file Click to Download russian-video-Azov-prisoner-was-recently-interviewed-in-captivity.mp4

 

This Azov prisoner was recently interviewed in captivity. Among other things:

He is supernaturally calm and confident, cocky at times, knows he won’t be mistreated, says he is safe because he is on Russian territory (i.e. not in Donetsk.)

 

He says about five times that he is a soldier and not a war criminal, his unit was ethical, his unit was ethical, Russia has nothing to charge him with, “I am a prisoner of war, I am not a criminal, I am a soldier”, his unit was ethical, basically you got nothin’ on me, detective.  He’s obviously repeating a short script that was drilled into him and all his comrades before the Azov’s surrender.

 

He claims the Azov didn’t surrender.  They willingly walked out of their bunkers and into captivity; they didn’t surrender. (This is the regime “party line”, not limited to Azov propaganda.)

He claims Mariupol has not been taken yet by Russia/Donetsk, it’s all propaganda.

 

He claims that his sniper squad (in which he was the number two in rank) didn’t know if they actually killed anyone; they absolutely never kept any records of how many they shot, they never even talked about it.  (LOL, this is fantastical, but at least he’s not claiming to have been just a cook or mechanic.)

 

He says, OK sure there were Azov guys with swastika tattoos, but not in his squad.  He’s not a Nazi, the Azov are not Nazis.  All the guys with Swastikas, checked out of the Azov by late 2015 (which contradicts the first sentence of this paragraph.) In fact, he knows a guy in Russia with a swastika tattoo, so what’s the big deal about all this Ukraine Nazi stuff?

 

He’s a pagan (“I am a pagan”) nature-worshipper, believes in the sun and the wind, renounces/denies the Ten Commandments or any knowledge thereof, looks up to the Vikings, has some rune tattoos.  He was baptized against his will; he couldn’t do anything about it, at that young age.

 

(If you didn’t know, ticky-tacky Viking-ism is a quasi-religion among “ultranationalist” young Ukrainian men of low intelligence. It was likely introduced by more intelligent people as an “acceptable”—to foreign sponsors—alternative to Nazism, although many of its adherents do have Nazi tattoos and/or collect Nazi paraphernalia.)

 

He claims the Azov never shot any Russian prisoners, the infamous video from the Azov’s Kharkov affiliate is fake, or they’re lying when they say there’s a video, whatever.

 

He believes Donetsk is bombing itself, it’s all a set-up, it’s not the Ukraine’s doing. (Again, the regime “party line.”)

 

He says Bandera is THE national hero of the Ukraine.  Bandera couldn’t have been a bad guy, because the Germans locked him up at one point.

 

He claims to know Ukrainian history very well.  Claims that Kharkov was founded by a Cossack named Kharko (this is a folk story or sort of a joke, not historical.)

 

He claims that his squad released 11 Russian/Donetsk prisoners for no particular reasonjust didn’t feel like bringing them to the bunkers when the Azov was retreating into the steel plant.  (LOL.  As I said, this guy has been “coached.”)

 

One of the Russian prisoners, whom he so much enjoyed talking to, and with whom he really hit it off, was a Caucasus guy with the given name of Shakh (which means Shah, as in the Shah of Persia—literally no one in Russia, or perhaps anywhere, has this name.)  There are family names like Shakhnazarov and other derivatives, but Shakh by itself, as a given or family name, is fantastical.)

 

He is grateful for the protection that the vakk-seenz continue to provide. (Haha, just kidding, he didn’t say that, but surely this guy has much in common with people you know!)

What this video tells us

(1) The Azov is a cult. Literally.

(2) The Azov’s zampolits (political officers) are/were operating on a very high level.

(3) The practice of inculcating dumb “talking points” into the broad population, is as well developed in the Ukraine as it is in the USA—indeed, Russia lags far behind in this capacity.

Just remember please, since 2015, the Azov was the main “behind the scenes but not always” authority in Mariupol, and operated a business empire in the city, also setting up affiliates in Kharkov and Kiev, as well as running the Ukraine’s single largest politically-oriented youth organization.

 

At its peak (just prior to the Russian invasion), the Azov had likely close to 10,000 uniformed personnel and civilian employees. It was by far the single largest military component within the Ukraine’s Interior Ministry, and also the only one that was essentially also a political organization in its own right.

 

The Azov is not marginal in the Ukraine, the Azov is the Ukraine, or one of the Ukraines, anyway—the dominant one.

The Azov Battalion: Laboratory of Nazism

23 May2022 https://thealtworld.com/thealtworld/the-azov-battalion-laboratory-of-nazism

The Azov Battalion

The Azov Battalion

Western propaganda continues to present the defenders of Mariupol as heroic martyrs, but every day it becomes harder to do so. They have been involved in the murder and brutal torture of women and children. The Azov Battalion is a symbol of hell and years of terror for the people of Donbass.

“They hung me by my legs, hit me on the head, torso, limbs, made me regain consciousness with water, and shot me near my left ear”, reads the medical records of Mariupol resident Tatiana Ganja.

On 30 October 2014, Ganja was detained in Mariupol by five men in military uniform with Azov Battalion chevrons and balaclavas. Already in a car, they beat her with their guns and urinated on her. They took her out of her car, kicked her, and fired a volley of shots over her head. They took her to Mariupol airport, where they carried on torturing her until 8 November. After that, they took her to court and a pre-trial detention centre.

 

Tatiana was a member of the Communist Party of Ukraine, now outlawed in the country. She took part in protest rallies in Mariupol and the 11 May referendum over the future of the Donetsk region. She was not even aware that she was blacklisted as an “intransigent separatist”.

 

In March 2019 during a press conference in Moscow, former officer of Ukraine’s Security Service (SBU) Vasily Prozorov spoke about “The Library”: a secret prison at Mariupol airport, a city controlled by the Azov Battalion. The “Library” contained “books”, the name given to captured DPR militiamembers and ordinary citizens “suspected of separatism”. They were tortured there. The place had two disconnected refrigerated cells with sealed doors and no furniture. Prozorov showed photographs of nine prisoners from the “Library” – among them were a teenager in a khaki t-shirt and two old men. All of them showed signs of beatings.

Azov survivors also confirmed his declarations to Sputnik

Former “Library” inmate Tatiana Ganja described the prison as a “real hell and place of death”.

“I cannot describe all the horrors. The bridge of my nose is broken and my left ear can’t hear. It’s really hard to remember. I won’t recount everything… Nevertheless, it was the UAF [Ukrainian Armed Forces] boy who took me to the toilet in that corridor and told me that ‘two days before, a girl had been beaten to death here, also called Tatiana”, she explains

On 8 November 2014, Ganja was taken from the airport for investigative actions. She was released following a prisoner exchange between Ukraine and the Donetsk People’s Republic on 26 December. Since then, she has been living in Donetsk in one of the dormitories for refugees. Azov looted her home in Mariupol.

“The Azov members took everything: my heating system, windows, and doors”. In his declarations, Prozorov also said that members of the “volunteer battalions” sent home any appliances, even microwaves with dried-up sandwiches inside, as trophies.

One day, Elena Blokha, a journalist from Mariupol, also found herself in the “Library’s ‘fridge’”.

“[I was] In a room 3×1.5 metres, lined with white tiles (it looked like a warehouse), there was only one chair, on which a girl with a pale face was sitting. ‘Don’t close the door, please!’, she pleaded, turning to the young man. ‘Be patient. You have to be strong’, he replied in a mockingly affectionate manner and shut the door tightly. It went completely dark and very stuffy. Apparently, there was no ventilation”, she described.

They detained Blokha along with her son and placed him in a male cell with several other prisoners.

“Some of them, according to my son, were badly beaten. One could even see broken ribs sticking out, another’s legs were broken… What kind of people they were and what happened to them afterwards, I don’t know, I can only imagine”.

Azov: The Beginning

In April 2014, after the Maidan triumph and when a street war between supporters and opponents [of Maidan] broke out in all major cities in southeastern Ukraine, the then-Acting President Oleksandr Turchynov announced an Anti-Terrorist Operation (ATO) in Donbass. While the NATO was started in order to form “volunteer battalions”, these batallions later became infamous for their atrocities against civilians and captured militiamembers.

 

The Azov Battalion was officially established on 5 May 2014 in the Kharkov neo-Nazi organisation Patriots of Ukraine*, the power wing of the Social-National Assembly. The “patriots” opened their first congress in 1999 with a torchlit procession similar to the marches seen in Hitler’s Germany.

 

The unit of 50-60 fighters possessed several smooth bore rifles and traumatic pistols. The head of the press service, Stepan Baida, described the Azov’s level of equipment at the time as “reinforced troops”.

 

The Black Corps patches, which directly allude to Reichsführer SS Himmler’s military (“Das Schwarze Korps”, translated from the German as “Black Corps”, the official printed media of the SS), continued to be used by the Azov even after its incorporation into legalranks commanded by the Ministry of Internal Affairs.

 

At first, it was a deemed a volunteer battalion in the Special Tasks Patrol Police of Ukrainian Ministry of Internal Affairs. Then, in October 2014, it became a regiment of the National Guard. As a military unit, Azov was authorised to acquire artillery and tanks.

Mariupol Massacre

The presence of Azov became fatal for the residents of Mariupol long before 2022. What happened there in the spring of 2014 was the most important episode of the Donbass conflict.

“In the morning, the Azov men in black uniforms, carrying weapons, [and] in columns of cars drove through [the city]. This show of force was meant to show that Mariupol was and remains a Ukrainian city”, Anton Gerashchenko, an adviser to the interior minister, recalled in a blog on the website of Ukrainska Pravda.

The Victory Day demonstration on 9 May 2014 ended in clashes near the city police headquarters. According to Kiev’s official information, 13 people were killed, including police officers, National Guard members and Azov Battalion fighters, as well as civilians.

 

The local police were sympathetic to the Donetsk People’s Republic, but did not take any action against their own superiors or the Ukrainian authorities in general.

A referendum on the independence of the Donetsk People’s Republic was scheduled for 11 May 2014. According to Former SBU Lieutenant-Colonel Prozorov, Mariupol police officers received orders to prevent the voting by blocking polling stations and detaining election commission members. However, the majority refused to obey, as they wanted to avoid conflicts with their fellow compatriots, including relatives.

“They are absolutely certain that it was a Kiev provocation. They paid the price for refusing to carry out orders to crack down on the 11 May referendum… The Azov Battalion, Kiev’s leaders and representatives of the Interior Ministry tried to stop the insubordination”, Prozorov claims.

‘White Leader’

Andriy Biletsky, a neo-Nazi known as White Leader (a nickname that a civilised person would find absurd which was given to him by his supporters before the Maidan), became Azov’s leader. That same year, 2014, he was elected to the Verkhovna Rada [Ukrainian parliament].

 

So what did White Leader do before Azov? Shortly before heading the battalion, Biletsky was released from prison. He was freed from the Kharkov pre-trial detention centre in late February 2014 thanks to Ukrainian Interior Minister Arsen Avakov, who favoured Azov and admitted that he had “special plans” for the unit.

 

Biletsky and his accomplices were imprisoned on charges of assaulting Sergei Kolesnik, who, as a result of an incident, sustained open skull and brain injuries and multiple stab wounds. The case was opened under the article of “robbery”.

 

The reason for the attack stemmed from an online argument in which the victim had been careless in speaking out against fascism. Biletsky was arrested and immediately became a “martyr” to the victorious Euromaidan; his detention was seen as political repression.

 

Biletsky has never concealed his Nazi views. Here are some of his most striking quotes.

 

On his mission and Jews:

“The challenge of the current generation is to create a Third Empire, the Great Ukraine. The historic mission of our nation in this crucial century is to head and lead the white peoples of the world in a final crusade for their existence, a crusade against Semitic-led sub-humanity”.

On blood purity:

“The migrant issue is indeed a key one. Our credo is to destroy everything that destroys our people. As you know, you can restore everything – economy, order in the streets, demography, strong army and navy, nuclear weapons – but the only thing that you cannot restore is blood purity”.

On his perception of Nazi collaborators the Ukrainian Insurgent Army (UPA, an extremist organisation banned in Russia):

“It is very unfortunate that Eastern Ukraine even today has a distorted understanding of the UPA”.

According to Kharkov journalists, Biletsky’s supporters began holding more or less visible actions in the fall of 2005. As early as 14 April 2006, on the anniversary of Koliivshchyna (the Cossack uprising of 1768, which led to a mass slaughter of Poles and Jews), they organised a xenophobic “Ukraine against the occupation” march in the city’s centre. According to various estimates, between 100 and 200 people took part in the rally. This event was followed by actions against the Vietnamese hostels in Kharkov.

 

Biletsky’s unit skillfully recruited or attracted representatives of far-right youth subcultures to join its ranks. The young neo-Nazis were drawn by their focus on violent methods of struggle: beatings, raids and pogroms.

 

The “vyshkols” – training camps – of the Patriots of Ukraine organisation were completely different from, for example, the [far-right paramilitary organisations] Tryzub of Stepan Bandera (another extremist organisation banned in Russia), the Congress of Ukrainian Nationalists or the Youth Nationalist Congress. In these camps, the organisation held activities for schoolchildren shooting air rifles, marching through forests and singing songs around a campfire. Biletsky, in turn, taught how to storm buildings or “remove” a guardsman from behind (how to strangle and stab him in the heart).

“The backbone of Azov is made up of people who have been involved in ‘vyshkols’ all their lives. We were preparing for war”, Vadym Troyan, then-head of the Ukrainian Interior Ministry’s Kiev Region, former deputy commander of the Azov Battalion and now deputy interior minister, told the Leviy Bereg newspaper on 2 December 2014. Between 2005 and 2008, Troyan was in charge of physical training for Patriots of Ukraine members.

The Kharkov branch alone had between 200 and 300 fighters in the early 2010s, some of whom lived permanently in the barracks at the organisation’s premises.

Where Did the Money Come From?

 

The Azov was funded – at least partially – by oligarch Igor Kolomoisky, as was the case with the other volunteer battalions operating in the ATO. Furthermore, Svetlana Zvarich, director of the Ukrainian National Information Service (one of the largest companies in the local information collection, transmission and processing market), provided assistance.

 

On 16 April 2015, Ukrayinska Pravda mentioned the charity foundation for educational innovations, which officially “works with Azov and provides it with everything it needs” in a report from Azov’s base at the ATEK engineering plant in Kiev , citing a comment by “the chairman of the supervisory board of the foundation, Svetlana Zvarich”.
But that is not the whole story. On 15 July 2016, the public learned that Azov had links to criminals when SBU Special Forces liquidated a group of Azov officers armed with assault rifles and a grenade launcher in Zaporozhye . They had attacked a money collectors’ car, a raid that was clearly not their first.

SBU Chief Vasyl Hrytsak said at the time that the Secret Service was checking Azov’s involvement in at least ten similar crimes.

Sources later specified to the Russian TV channel Vesti that “Before the New Year (2016 – ed. note), the same gang robbed a jewelry shop in one of the malls early in the morning and killed a shop assistant. And on 28 February, the bandits attacked the jewelry shop again”.

There is also knowlegde of a bribe of two million hryvnias ($68,000) extorted from a Kiev businessman by the battalion’s head of manning Vladimir Brzezinski and former Azov Chief of Staff Vadym Troyan under threats of reprisals.

 

In other words, the Azov militiamembers were simply engaged in racketeering. According to the owner of one of the gambling halls, the so-called patriots showed up in mid-2015. Couriers from local radical organisations visited all the gambling halls, offering to “negotiate”.

“The cooperation with the ‘patriots’ basically means that they do not touch us. And we pay them money for this – 30 to 50 thousand hryvnias a month [$1,020-1,700] from each hall. If we do not pay, a Molotov cocktail will burn down the gambling hall within a week”.

‘Laboratory of Nazism’

The Azov Battalion stands out for its strong ideological background. Neo-Nazis, anti-Semites and racists are at the forefront of the unit. Its symbols contain elements that refer to the emblems of Third Reich military units.

The photo shows Azov fighters taking the oath of allegiance before being sent to Donbass in July 2014. The regiment’s flag bears a black Wolfsangel (“wolf’s hook” in German). This sign was the emblem of Hitler’s National Socialist German Workers’ Party (NSDAP). Subsequently, the Wolfsangel became the tactical mark of the SS Panzer Division “Das Reich”, and was also used in other SS and Wehrmacht units, in particular, the 34th SS Volunteer Grenadier Division “Landstorm Nederland”.

 

Over time, representatives of the Social National Assembly, Automaidan and Organisation of Ukrainian Nationalists activists, ultras (hooligans) of the Dynamo (Kiev) and Shakhtar football clubs, members of Dmytro Korchynsky’s Bratstvo party* and the Cossack Rifle Brotherhood joined Azov.

 

The open demonstration of misanthropy attracted radicals and neo-Nazis from all over the world to join the Azov Battalion.

 

Biletsky said in an interview that there were representatives of three dozen nationalities in Azov, but “not once did a Chinese or a Nigerian come to them”.

 

The Azov expanded, fought against the Donbass militia, and attracting new volunteers, including foreigners.

 

A series of video interviews with foreigners associated with the regiment were published on the page of the National Corps and National Druzhina units, both projects set up in 2016 by the Azov.

 

Alexei Levkin from Tver, Russia, is one of the typical characters. He is a neo-Nazi fugitive convicted of being part of a gang that committed numerous ethnic murders. He is also the lead singer of the band M8L8TH, which glorifies fascism, the SS and the concentration camps of the Third Reich.

 

Quotes from Levkin’s diary hit the internet in 2008.

“Adolf Hitler is the Great Leader who has engaged in an unequal fight for our White World. He is the Great Symbol of Our Struggle”.

Another volunteer, Joachim Fürholm from Norway, calls himself a “national socialist revolutionary” and “admires” what [2011 far-right Norway bomber Anders] Breivik did. In an interview with the Nazi radio Radio Wehrwolf, found by Bellingcat (an organisation recognised as a foreign agent in Russia), Fürholm considers Azov to be a “laboratory of fascism”.

“I found myself leading a small group of volunteers from all over the West: the aim was to get some combat experience and send some of the guys back to pass on skills and knowledge. In a way, it is a fascist laboratory. The conditions there are optimal”, he explained.

Beat the Dog Before the Lion

From the outset, all of the volunteer battalions were haunted by scandals: looting and sexual violence (Shakhtersk and Tornado Battalions were the most prominent), kidnapping and killing of civilians (by the notorious Donbass Battalion) and the seizure of businesses.

 

There was less talk about the Azov. After all, it was an extremely closed unit and the strict hierarchy and the constant threat of reprisals against one’s own people played a role.

 

However, some who joined Azov as volunteers without right-wing radical ideas could not get along in the Nazi environment and revolted. They were the ones who made the White Leader’s unpleasant juicy details public.

“I and 15 other fighters left the battalion because of our disagreements, including ideological, with the actions of the commanders and their underlings. Instead of fighting, they are engaged in looting and plundering”, Azov Deputy Commander Yaroslav Gonchar told a correspondent of the Vesti Reporter. “In my presence, two trucks with looted property were taken from Yanukovych’s wife Lyudmyla’s dacha in Urzuf settlement. Property was also stolen from Yanukovych’s hunting grounds in Starodubovka. When I declared such actions, as well as open support for nationalism in the battalion, as unacceptable they tied me up and threw me in the basement. There they tortured me. People saying that the Azov Battalion is pure and innocent are blatantly lying. The battalion has turned into a gang, only extreme rightwingers are accepted. If a person does not adhere to nationalist convictions, he will not be accepted into Azov”.

From ‘Hateful’ to ‘Heroes’

Now, almost 80 years after the demise of the Third Reich, Nazi battalions openly marching through the streets of European cities with their symbols which are banned in the civilized world, the unpunished killing of civilians, looting, extortion, reprisals and punitive operations are again a reality.

 

Back in 2015, the US Congress banned the Pentagon from supplying portable anti-aircraft missile systems to Ukraine and from training and equipping the Azov Battalion. Congressional representatives called it a “disgusting Nazi formation”. This was a reaction to a number of publications in the US press in which shocked journalists wrote about the openly Nazi views of both the leadership and fighters of Azov.

 

But seven years later, the world is witnessing how the “hideous Nazi formation” began to be fashioned into valiant heroes, the “defenders of Mariupol”.

Stepan Bandera

Stepan Bandera Stepan Andriyovych Bandera (Ukrainian: Степа́н Андрі́йович Банде́ра, romanized: Stepán Andríyovyč Bandéra, IPA: [steˈpɑn ɐnˈd⁽ʲ⁾r⁽ʲ⁾ijoʋɪt͡ʃ bɐnˈdɛrɐ]; Polish: Stepan Andrijowycz Bandera; 1 January 1909 – 15 October 1959) was an Ukrainian nationalist leader, politician and theorist of the militant wing (OUN-B), served as head of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists,[1][2] organization responsible for ethnic cleansings and also implicated in collaboration with Nazi Germany.[1][3]

Stepan Bandera

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stepan_Bandera#World_War_II

In this name that follows Eastern Slavic naming conventions, the patronymic is Andriyovych and the family name is Bandera.
Stepan Andriyovych Bandera (Ukrainian: Степа́н Андрі́йович Банде́ра, romanizedStepán Andríyovyč Bandéra, IPA: [steˈpɑn ɐnˈd⁽ʲ⁾r⁽ʲ⁾ijoʋɪt͡ʃ bɐnˈdɛrɐ]; Polish: Stepan Andrijowycz Bandera; 1 January 1909 – 15 October 1959) was an Ukrainian nationalist leader, politician and theorist of the militant wing (OUN-B), served as head of the Organization of Ukrainian Nationalists,[1][2] organization responsible for ethnic cleansings and also implicated in collaboration with Nazi Germany.[1][3]

 

Born in the economically backward Galicia (officially Kingdom of Galicia and Lodomeria, created after the first partition of Poland) into the family of a priest of Eastern Catholic Church.[4] After the Empire disintegrated in the wake of World War I, Galicia briefly became a West Ukrainian People’s Republic; following the Polish–Ukrainian War of 1918–1919, it was again integrated into eastern Poland. In this period, Bandera became radicalized. He enrolled at the Lviv Polytechnic, where he organized Ukrainian nationalist organizations. For orchestrating the 1934 assassination of Poland’s Minister of the Interior Bronisław Pieracki, Bandera was sentenced to death but the sentence was commuted to life imprisonment. In September 1939, as a result of the invasion of Poland, he was freed from Bereza Kartuska prison, and moved to Kraków, in the German-occupied zone, where he maintained close connections with Abwehr and Wehrmacht.[5][6]

 

For a time, Bandera collaborated with Nazi Germany. When Nazi Germany invaded the Soviet Union, he prepared the 30 June 1941 Proclamation of Ukrainian statehood in Lviv, pledging to work with Nazi Germany.[7][5] For his refusal to rescind the decree, Bandera was arrested by the Gestapo and on 5 July 1941 held under house arrest.[8] After January 1942 Bandera was transferred to Sachsenhausen concentration camp but kept in special, comparatively comfortable detention.[9][10][11] In 1944, with Germany rapidly losing ground in the war in the face of the advancing Allied armies, Bandera was released in the hope that he would be instrumental in deterring the advancing Soviet forces. He set up the headquarters of the re-established Ukrainian Supreme Liberation Council, which worked underground. After the war, Bandera with his family settled in West Germany where he remained the leader of the OUN-B and worked with several anti-communist organizations such as the Anti-Bolshevik Bloc of Nations[12] as well as with the US and British intelligence agencies.[12][4] Fourteen years after the end of the war, Bandera was assassinated in 1959 by KGB agents in Munich, West Germany.[13][14]

 

On 22 January 2010, the President of Ukraine Viktor Yushchenko awarded Bandera the posthumous title of Hero of Ukraine.[15] The European Parliament condemned the award, as did Russia, Poland and Jewish politicians and organizations.[16][17][18][19][20] President Viktor Yanukovych declared the award illegal, since Bandera was never a citizen of Ukraine, a stipulation necessary for getting the award. This announcement was confirmed by a court decision in April 2010.[21] In January 2011, the award was officially annulled.[22][23] A proposal to confer the award on Bandera was rejected by the Ukrainian parliament in August 2019.[24]

 

Bandera remains a highly controversial figure in Ukraine,[25][26][27] with some Ukrainians hailing him as a liberator who fought against the Soviet Union, Poland and Nazi Germany trying to establish an independent Ukraine, while other Ukrainians condemn him as a fascist[28] and a war criminal[28] who was, together with his followers, largely responsible for the massacres of Polish civilians[29] and partially for the Holocaust in Ukraine.[30][31][32][33]

The Uman Massacre

What really happened in Uman? Why did Rebbe Nachman want to be buried there? Tal Rotem gives an historical overview of a monumental “Kiddush Hashem”. Uman and Emuna go together…

Tal Rotem Posted on 31.05.08 https://breslev.com/307327/

The Massacre of Uman took place in the year 1768, a mere four years before the birth of Rebbe Nachman of Breslev. 33,000 Jews from Uman and the surrounding villages who took refuge from the murderous Jew-hating Ivan Gonta, the Ukrainian rebel that led the revolution against Poland, who then governed the Ukraine and was relatively decent to the Jews.

Uman and the Haidameks

Uman was a well-fortified city where a major part of Polish troops in the Ukraine were stationed. This fact made Uman one of the primary objectives of the Kolivivschyna movement, known popularly as the “Haidameks”, the organization of bitterly anti-Semitic Ukrainian Cossacks and their peasant supporters who revolted against Poland.  Commanded by cut-throat Ivan Gonta who prided himself that he drank a fresh glass of his enemies’ blood every morning, the Cossacks began their siege on Uman.

 

In early June of 1768, on the way to Uman, the Ukrainian rebels by Gonta and Maxim Zalizniak razed a number of Jewish cities in one of history’s most cruel pogroms. As Zalizniak openly encouraged the slaughter of Jews, Uman filled with refugees from all over the Podolia region of the Central Ukraine in the Jewish Pale of Settlement.

 

A large camp filled with Polish nobility and their private militia, regular soldiers and Jewish refugees was stationed outside the city walls. The Cossacks routed the Polish encampment on June 14th and tried to take the city by surprise but to no avail. After this first unsuccessful attempt, the siege on Uman began on June 17th. The very first day large number of Ukrainians deserted the ranks of Polish forces and joined the rebel Cossacks when the city was surrounded.

 

After three days of the siege the city fell to Zalizniak in spite of a courageous defense in which the Jews also played an active role. The tragic point occurred during the peace negotiation on the third day of the siege that concluded in a combat and subsequent takeover of the city. It is unclear whether the resulting fight was initiated by Ukrainian or Polish side as the accounts of the event differ. What we do know is that the Jewish fighters led by Leib Shargorodski and Moses Menaker in an attempt to defend themselves, and barricaded themselves in one of Uman’s synagogues, but they were destroyed by cannon fire. All but a handful of Uman’s 33,000 Jews were subsequently killed by Gonta and his henchmen.

Martyrs in “Kiddush Hashem”

Gonta set up a tremendous cross in a lot in front of a church. He then set up a low canopy in front of the cross. After his men rouned up all the Jews that weren’t slaughtered in the fierce hand-to-hand and house-to-house fighting, he told them that anyone who passed through the canopy would be spared. But, in order to do so, one would have to prostrate oneself before the cross. Not a single Jewish man, woman, or child agreed to do so, despite the fact that parents were slaughtered in front of their children and children were brutally maimed in front of their parents. This became the greatest sanctification of Hashem’s name in history.

Gonta’s Execution

Fearing that the rebellion would spread into her domain, Catherine the Great, then Empress of Russia, dispatched a regiment of her best soldiers to help Poland suppress the rebellion. The commander of the Russian unit, Guriev, made the Haidameks believe he was siding with them against Poland and managed to capture approximately 900 of them without firing a single shot. He siezed Ivan Gonta and handed him over to the irate Poles and was tried for high treason. Sentenced to a bitter and agonizing death by grand, Gonta’s nailed to gallows and exhibited in 14 towns of Podolia.

The Ukranian View of Gonta

Although an arch-criminal and murderer, Gonta is a Ukrainian folk hero, immortalized in songs, legends, and poetry, such as Shevchenko’s controversial epic poem “Haidamaki”.

 

As a whole, the Cossacks and the haidameks are respected and worshipped in Ukraine, considered defenders of their motherland who fought against invaders. Ukrainians believe that the rowdy, brutal, and bloodthirsty insurgents defended social freedoms, the Ukrainian Orthodox faith and Ukraine’s independence. They view the Haidameks as paragons of courage, patriotism and dignity. Ukrainian many parents used to bring up their children. One Ukrainian history book. To this day, Ukrainians believe that the Haidameks fought against “Polish occupiers and Jewish landlords,” as one high school teacher in Uman told me, but this is of course a falsity since Jews were not allowed to own land in the Ukraine.

Why Uman?

Why did Rebbe Nachman choose Uman as his place of eternal rest?

 

Once, on the way from eastern Ukraine to his new home in Brelev, he passed by the mass grave of Uman’s Jews. He stopped the wagon driver, pondered, took a deep breath and said, “Here is the scent of Heaven. This is a good place to lay in rest.” He chose Uman because of its many holy martyrs who gave their lives for their “emuna”, their pure and complete faith in Hashem. Uman is therefore an eternal monument of emuna, may the holy martyrs lay in eternal peace, amen.

Ivan Gonta

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ivan_Gonta

 

Ivan Gonta (Ukrainian: Іван Ґонта; died 1768) was one of the leaders of the Koliivshchyna, an armed rebellion of peasants and Ukrainian Cossacks against Bar confederation in the Polish–Lithuanian Commonwealth.

 

Born in Rożyszki (modern Rozsishky) near Uman’ in Bracław Voivodship, Gonta served as a sotnik (captain) of Cossack household militia of Franciszek Salezy Potocki, the Voivode of Kiev, and commanded a small unit in the garrison of Uman since 1757. During the Koliivshchyna he was ordered to fight the approaching haidamaka forces of Maksym Zalizniak. Instead, he and his militia joined the rebels, and the joint forces captured and ravaged the town of Uman on June 21, 1768. In what became known as the Massacre of Uman, thousands of local Polish szlachta, Jews, Uniates and other people were slaughtered. After that, Gonta was proclaimed colonel and commanded the garrison of Uman.

 

When Gonta sent a detachment to spread rebellion into the Ottoman Empire, Catherine the Great, the Empress of Russia, dispatched a regiment of Don Cossacks fighting against Bar confederation to help Poland suppress the rebellion to prevent Ottomans from waging a war against Russia. The commander of the Russian unit, Guriev, made the rebels believe he was siding with them for the joint trip against Bar confederation and managed to capture approximately 900 of them without a single shot. After that, Ivan Gonta was handed over to the Poles and was tried for high treason. Sentenced to death by grand Crown Hetman Franciszek Ksawery Branicki, he was then executed in the village of Serby (modern Gontivka) in the Podolian Voivodship. As an added measure, his body was partitioned and nailed to gallows in 14 towns of Podolia.

 

Although largely non-notable during his life, after his death he became a hero of countless folk songs and legends that portrayed him as a hero and a martyr. He was immortalized in Taras Shevchenko‘s controversial epic poem Haidamaky though Gonta had never killed his Roman Catholic sons, because his wife and children were of Orthodox faith and in fact he had never initiated the massacre of Uman himself.

UKRAINE: DONBASS. YESTERDAY, TODAY, AND TOMORROW (Warning: Graphic)

4March2022 TruthFreedom
WARNING: Not for the faint of heart. Learn some background about Ukraine. It’s been almost eight years since a US-inspired coup divided Ukraine and war erupted in the country’s east. The Donetsk and Lugansk republics, next to Russia’s border, are collectively known as Donbass, a coal-mining industrial centre. The two declared independence from Kiev in 2014, and civil war erupted.

 

There are mass graves scattered across Donbass, from which bodies of civilians are regularly exhumed. Yet, while the shelling and killings continued, Western media remained silent. According to UN estimates, over 13,000 people have been killed in the conflict.

 

The Donbass people call it a ‘genocide of the Russian-speaking population’. Kiev outlawed the Russian language from everyday life, endeavouring to limit its use, despite Russian being the native language in large areas of the country.

 

Donbass. Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow takes a look back at events that unfolded before the start of the crisis in 2014. Historians and journalists share their views on the conflict, players and motives, while ordinary citizens from the Donetsk and Lugansk regions describe the horrors of war.

The Downing Street website describes Larry’s duties as “greeting guests to the house, inspecting security defences and testing antique furniture for napping quality”. It says he is “contemplating a solution to the mouse occupancy of the house” and has told Downing Street that such a solution is still in the “tactical planning stage”.[6]

Unlike his predecessors since 1929, Larry’s upkeep is funded by the staff of 10 Downing Street.[7] Fund-raising events to pay for his food are believed to have included a quiz night for Downing Street staff held in the state rooms.[8]

Who is Larry the Cat and how does he keep outlasting UK leaders?

BY NATALIE PRIEB – 07/07/22 10:09 AM ET  https://thehill.com/blogs/blog-briefing-room/3548594-who-is-larry-the-cat-and-how-does-he-keep-outlasting-uk-leaders/

British Prime Minister Boris Johnson is out, resigning Thursday after less than three years on the job. Larry the Cat, a mainstay at 10 Downing Street, is not going anywhere.

The brown and white tabby, whose official title is chief mouser to the Cabinet Office of the United Kingdom, has been living in the country’s executive office since 2011.

With Johnson’s resignation, Larry has now outlasted three British prime ministers, having previously seen the ends of David Cameron’s and Theresa May’s terms at 10 Downing.

Larry was initially brought to Downing Street by Cameron to handle a rat issue near the prime minister’s official residence. He was a former stray adopted from London’s Battersea Dogs and Cats Home and was the first cat to take over the unofficial rat-catching post since the retirement of Humphrey in 1997.

The chief mouser is well-versed in interacting with world leaders. He appeared to have warmed up to former President Obama but took a nap under former President Trump’s armored vehicle during his visit in 2019.

Now it seems that Larry has garnered enough respect from British politicians in his lengthy tenure as chief mouser that some are facetiously floating him for a potential prime minister bid himself.

“Well at some basic level, almost anybody in Parliament would be a better prime minister than Boris Johnson. Larry the Downing Street cat would be a better prime minister,” Rory Stewart, a former Conservative member of Parliament, said in an interview with CNN’s Christiane Amanpour.

Following Johnson’s election to the office in December 2019, it was rumored that Larry may be headed for the door since Johnson is inclined toward dogs.

However, even after Johnson’s Jack Russell terrier Dilyn moved into Downing Street, Larry has remained in his post and can now add Johnson to the list of prime ministers he has outlasted.

Rabbi Kahana: The Tenth and Conclusive Test

17 November 2022 https://habayitah.blogspot.com/2022/11/rabbi-kahana-tenth-and-conclusive-test.html

 

BS”D Parashat Chayai Sarah  5783

by Rabbi Nachman Kahana | Nov 16, 2022

The Tenth and Conclusive Test

 

The United States government has warned our government to refrain from appointing Knesset member Mr. Betzalel Smotrich as the next Minister of Defense and/or Knesset member Mr. Itamar Ben-Gvir from serving as our Minister of Internal Security. And if we do so, the American State Department, Defense Department and other relevant governmental and economic agencies will not co-operate with them.

 

What does the U.S. government have against these two Israelis, except for the fact that their ancestors stood at the foot of Mount Sinai when Hashem, the Creator of all, declared the Jews to be His chosen race and nation for all time; and closed the holy bond by mutual agreement that HaShem presents us with His 613 commandments intended solely for the Jewish nation; and we abide by them?

 

What did these two Torah observant Jews do to release the genie of discrimination and outright hate?

I submit:

HaShem put Avraham Aveinu through ten tests. The ninth was in last week’s Shabbat parasha, the “binding of Yitzchak” (Akeidat Yitzchak) and the tenth in this Shabbat’s parasha Cha’yai Sarah. the negotiations between Avraham and Efron the Hittite for the purchase of Ma’arat Ha’machpela as a burial site for Sarah.

 

Logic dictates that the physical and mental challenges of every succeeding test increase in difficulty.  What is it about the last test of real-estate set before Avraham that made it more trying than the Akeida?

 

Was it due to the necessity to deal with worldly matters of “real estate” while in the midst of a profound emotional crisis at the loss of his beloved Sarah? Was it his being taken advantage of by the unscrupulous Efron who charged 400 shekels for a burial site which was not worth nearly that much?

 

These were indeed aggravating realities, but the hard core of the test, I believe, ran far deeper into the area which was to impact upon Jewish history.

 

A fundamental religious principle appears in many of our classical commentaries and responsa:

מעשה אבות סימן לבנים

The actions of the fathers (Avraham, Yitzchak and Ya’akov) guide their children (the Jewish people) along the path to redemption.

The moment of truth came when Avraham, despite the dangers inherent in what he was presently going to do, stood up before the Hittite council of elders and proclaimed:

גר ותושב אנכי עמכם

I am a stranger and a resident among you.

Rashi quotes the Midrash that explains Avraham’s intent:

אם תרצו הריני גר ואם לאו אהיה תושב ואטלנה מן הדין שאמר לי

הקבהלזרעך אתן את הארץ הזאת

If you wish [to sell the burial site amicably], I will act as a stranger who recognizes your rights over the area; but if you refuse to sell me the burial site, then I will implement my right of sovereignty and seize the land by virtue of God’s promise to me, “And to your children will I give this land.”

 

At the time when Avraham was told by HaShem to leave his land, his birthplace and his father’s home to take up residence in a land which HaShem would identify later, Europe was mostly desolate, as were most parts of Africa and Asia, not to speak of the Americas. But instead of sending Avraham to establish a Jewish State in some unpopulated area where there would be no protest, Avraham was directed to the most populous area in the world: a thin sliver of land at the eastern end of the Mediterranean Sea populated by seven pagan nations numbering in the hundreds of thousands, perhaps millions!

 

Each of these peoples descended from Cham, son of Noach, and arrived in the land much before Avraham. They cultivated its fields, constructed buildings and established places of worship, which taken together served as a common civilization.

 

At this junction in their history, a stranger arrives from the east and declares before the Hittite council of elders:

גר ותושב אנכי עמכם

 

I am a stranger and a resident among you.

 

That he is the true sovereign over all the land. Not just the area of Canaan, but of all the lands from the Euphrates in the northeast to the Nile in the southwest, and from the Mediterranean to Mesopotamia. By this statement, Avraham, a lone unprotected Jew, was challenging the rights of countless peoples who considered themselves the owners of these lands by virtue of conquest and/or purchase.

 

This was an act of immense courage, because from that moment on Avraham was perceived by all those people to be a threat to their way of life and to their very existence. Here is the thorn in the side of our relationships with all gentiles: we Jews are HaShem’s chosen people! And Avraham spoke the plain, fundamental truth which all humanity must accept.

 

To the gentiles, Messrs. Smotrich and Ben-Gvir are guilty of the “sin” of their forefather Avraham.  They spoke the truth: that the act that sealed the bond between the Creator and the Jewish people is possession of the holy land in all its borders.

 

Whether or not Messrs. Smotrich or Ben-Gvir will serve as ministers in the next government is irrelevant. What is very relevant is the fact that the majority of Israeli Jews, by their vote, testified that we have borne the torch of Judaism to this day despite the intense efforts of many people and faiths to extinguish it’s flame, the torch shines now brighter that it did even 2000 years ago.

Shabbat Shalom

Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin al-Husseini and Adolf Hitler December 1941
Haj Amin al-Husseini who was, in many ways, as big a Nazi villain as Hitler himself. To understand his influence on the Middle East is to understand the ongoing genocidal program against the Jews of Israel. Al-Husseini was a bridge figure in terms of transporting the Nazi genocide in Europe into the post-war Middle East. As the leader of Arab Palestine during the British Mandate period, al-Husseini introduced violence against moderate Arabs as well as against Jews. Al-Husseini met with Adolf Eichmann in Palestine in 1937 and subsequently went on the Nazi payroll as a Nazi agent. Al-Husseini played a pivotal behind-the-scenes role in instigating a pro-Nazi coup in Iraq in 1941 as he urged Nazis and pro-Nazi governments in Europe to transport Jews to death camps, trained pro-Nazi Bosnian brigades, and funneled Nazi loot into pro-war Arab countries.
On 20 November1941, al-Husseini met the German Foreign Minister Joachim von Ribbentrop and was officially received by Adolf Hitler on 28 November.
Al-Husseini’s own account, as recorded in his diary, states that Hitler expounded his view that the Jews were responsible for World War I, Marxism and its revolutions, and this was why the task of Germans was to persevere in a battle without mercy against the Jews,
According to the official report of the meeting, on November 28, 1941, Adolf Hitler told Husseini that the Afrika Korps would “liberate” Arabs in the Middle East and that “Germany’s only objective there would be the destruction of the Jews.”
“SS leaders and Husseini both claimed that Nazism and Islam had common values as well as common enemies – above all, the Jews,” the report states.
In fall 1943, it says, Husseini went to the Croatia, a German ally, to recruit Muslims for the Waffen-SS.

Arab Riots of the 1920’s

by Jacqueline Shields https://www.jewishvirtuallibrary.org/arab-riots-of-the-1920-s

At the end of World War I, discussions commenced on the future of the Middle East, including the disposition of Palestine. On April 19, 1920, the AlliesBritainFranceItaly and Greece, Japan and Belgium, convened in San Remo, Italy to discuss a peace treaty with Turkey. The Allies decided to assign Great Britain the mandate over Palestine on both sides of the Jordan River, and the responsibility for putting the Balfour Declaration into effect. Arab nationalists were unsure how best to react to British authority. The two preeminent Jerusalem clans, the el-Husseinis and the Nashashibis, battled for influence throughout the mandate, as they had for decades before. The former was very anti-British, whereas the latter favored a more conciliatory policy.

 

One of the el-Husseinis, Haj Amin, who emerged as the leading figure in Palestinian politics during the mandate period, first began to organize small groups of suicide groups, fedayeen (“one who sacrifices himself”), to terrorize Jews in 1919 in the hope of duplicating the success of Kemal in Turkey and drive the Jews out of Palestine, just as the Turkish nationalists were driving the Greeks from Turkey. The first large Arab riots took place in Jerusalem in the intermediary days of Passover, April 1920. The Jewish community had anticipated the Arab reaction to the Allies’ convention and was ready to meet it. Jewish affairs in Palestine were then being administered from Jerusalem by the Vaad Hatzirim (Council of Delegates), appointed by the World Zionist Organization (WZO) (which became the Jewish Agency in 1929). The Vaad Hatzirim charged Ze’ev (Vladimir) Jabotinsky with the task of organizing Jewish self-defense. Jabotinsky was one of the founders of the Jewish battalions, which had served in the British Army during the First World War and had participated in the conquest of Palestine from the Turks. Acting under the auspices of the Vaad Hatzirim, Jabotinsky lead the Haganah (self-defense) organization in Jerusalem, which succeeded in repelling the Arab attack. Six Jews were killed and some 200 injured in Jerusalem in the course of the 1920 riots. In addition, two Americans, Jakov Tucker and Ze’ev Scharff, both WWI veterans, were killed resisting an Arab attack on the Jewish settlement of Tel Hai in March 1920. Had it not been for the preliminary organization of Jewish defense, the number of victims would have undoubtedly been much greater.

 

After the riots, the British arrested both Arabs and Jews. Among those arrested was Jabotinsky, together with 19 of his associates, on a charge of illegal possession of weapons. Jabotinsky was sentenced to 15 years imprisonment with hard labor and deportation from the country after completion of his sentence. When the sentence became known, the Vaad Hatzirim made plans for widespread protests, including mass demonstrations and a national fast. Meanwhile, however, the mandate for Palestine had been assigned to Great Britain, and the jubilation of the Yishuv outweighed the desire to protest against the harsh sentence imposed on Jabotinsky and his comrades.

 

With the arrival in Jerusalem of the first High Commissioner, Sir Herbert Samuel, British military government was superseded by a civilian administration. As a gesture toward the civilian population, the High Commissioner proclaimed a general amnesty for both Jews and Arabs who had been involved in the April 1920 riots. Jabotinsky and his comrades were released from prison to an enthusiastic welcome by the Yishuv, but Jabotinsky insisted that the sentence passed against them be revoked entirely, arguing that the defender should not be placed on trial with the aggressor. After months of struggle, the British War Office finally revoked the sentences.

 

In 1921, Haj Amin el-Husseini began to organize larger scale fedayeen to terrorize Jews. Colonel Richard Meinertzhagen, former head of British military intelligence in Cairo, and later Chief Political Officer for Palestine and Syria, wrote in his diary that British officials “incline towards the exclusion of Zionism in Palestine.”

In fact, the British encouraged the Arabs to attack the Jews. According to Meinertzhagen, Col. Waters Taylor, financial adviser to the Military Administration in Palestine 1919-23, met with Haj Amin a few days before Easter, in 1920, and told him “he had a great opportunity at Easter to show the world…that Zionism was unpopular not only with the Palestine Administration but in Whitehall and if disturbances of sufficient violence occurred in Jerusalem at Easter, both General Bols [Chief Administrator in Palestine, 1919-20] and General Allenby [Commander of Egyptian Force, 1917-19, then High Commissioner of Egypt] would advocate the abandonment of the Jewish Home. Waters-Taylor explained that freedom could only be attained through violence.”

 

Haj Amin took the Colonel’s advice and instigated a riot. The British withdrew their troops and the Jewish police from Jerusalem, and the Arab mob attacked Jews and looted their shops. Due to Haj Amin’s overt role in instigating the pogrom, the British arrested him. Yet, despite the arrest, Haj Amin escaped to Jordan, but he was sentenced to 10 years imprisonment in absentia. A year later, however, British Arabists convinced High Commissioner Herbert Samuel to pardon Haj Amin and to appoint him Mufti.

 

Samuel met with Haj Amin on April 11, 1921, and was assured “that the influences of his family and himself would be devoted to tranquility.” Three weeks later, however, riots in Jaffa and Petah Tikvah, instigated by the Mufti, left 43 Jews dead. Following these riots England established the Haycraft Commission to evaluate the cause of these riots. The appendix of the report reads, “The fundamental cause of the Jaffa riots and the subsequent acts of violence was a feeling among the Arabs of discontent with, and hostility to, the Jews, due to political and economic causes, and connected with Jewish immigration, and with their conception of Zionist policy as derived from Jewish exponents . . . the Arab majority, who were generally the aggressors, inflicted most of the casualties.”

 

Following these riots, Haj Amin consolidated his power and took control of all Muslim religious funds in Palestine. He used his authority to gain control over the mosques, the schools and the courts. No Arab could reach an influential position without being loyal to the Mufti. As the “Palestinian” spokesman, Haj Amin wrote to Colonial Secretary Winston Churchill in 1921, demanding that restrictions be placed on Jewish immigration and that Palestine be reunited with Syria and Transjordan. Churchill issued the White Paper of 1922, which tried to allay Arab fears about the Balfour Declaration. The White Paper acknowledged the need for Jewish immigration to enable the Jewish community to grow but placed the familiar limit of the country’s absorptive capacity on immigration. Although not pleased with Churchill’s diplomatic Paper, the Zionists accepted it; the Arabs, however, rejected it.

 

Despite the disturbances in 1920-1921, the Yishuv continued to develop in relative peace and security. Another wave of riots, however, broke out in 1924 after another wave of pogrom’s sent 67,000 Polish Jewish refugees to Palestine. After a week of skirmishes in Jerusalem between the Haganah and Arab mobs, 133 Jews and 116 Arabs lay dead. The Yishuv’s main concern at that time was its financial difficulties; the economic crisis of 1926-1928 led many to believe that the Zionist enterprise would fail due to lack of funds. Zionist leaders attempted to rectify the situation by expanding the Jewish Agency to incorporate non-Zionists who were willing to contribute to the practical settlement of Palestine.

 

The prospects for renewed financial support for the Yishuv upset Arab leaders who feared economic domination by the Zionists. Led by Haj Amin al-Husseini once again, rumors of a Jewish plot to seize control of Muslim holy places began to spread in August 1929. Violence erupted soon after, causing extensive damage. Rioting and looting were rampant throughout Palestine. In Jerusalem, Muslims provoked the violence and tensions by building and praying on or near the holiest place in the world for Jews, the Western Wall. By late August, the Arabs, in well-organized formation, attacked Jewish settlements near Jerusalem. The disturbances spread to Hebron and Safed, including many settlements in between, and on the Kfar Dorom kibbutz in the Gaza Strip.

On August 23, 1929, Arabs murdered 67 Jews in a massacre in Hebron. Three days later, the British evacuated the 484 survivors, including 153 children, to Jerusalem.

Hebron Massacre of the ancient Jewish community by Arab killers in 1929

JusticeVSpropaganda 08June2011

This is the first documented massacre in the holy land, however Arabs murdered Jews also in the 1920th, and until our days this hate to Jews, later using the term of Zionist ‘occupation’ as a convinient excuse for this savage brutal hatefull massacres. What could be the reason in 1929 to slaughter by torture and corrupt the bodies of the ancient Jewish community members who lived in Hebron hundreds of years? Only a Nazi ideology of annihilation; The ‘Palestinian people’ was not invented yet for propaganda purpose: These were ‘just’ Arabs expressing rage and sadistic desires towards the helpless victims. Only few people among Arabs hid and rescued some of their Jewish neighbours, while the majority either participated or witnessed the horrors. What ‘occupation’ could be the excuse for this? So, after being aware to this forgotten detail in history, can someone still consider Jewish settlers in Hebron, as ‘illegal’?

 

And besides: nearly million Jews were forced to flee from Arab countries due to persecutions. Why are those refugees and survivors not mentioned in mainstream media, and the horrors they have been through?

After six days of rioting, the British finally brought in troops to quell the disturbance. Even though Jews had been living in Gaza and Hebron for centuries, following these riots, the British forced Jews to leave their homes and prohibited Jews from living in the Gaza strip and Hebron to appease Arabs and quell violence. By the end of the rioting, the death toll was 133 Jews, including eight Americans, and 110 Arabs (most killed by British security forces).

 

More than 200 Arabs and 15 Jews were tried and sentenced for their role in the unrest in 1929. Out of 27 capital cases involving Arabs, only three of the death sentences were carried out, the others were granted “mercy” and their sentences were commuted to life in prison. Muhammad Jamjoum, Fuad Hijazi, and Ataa Al-Zir were put to death on June 17, 1930, because they were convicted of particularly brutal murders in Safad and Hebron.

 

The British approved payment of nearly 100,000 pounds to Jews for “loss of life and permanent incapacity, and proportionately up to the limits of the sum available in respect of damage to property” by Arabs in the 1929 riots. A “special Jewish Fund for relief and reconstruction purposes to repair the losses suffered by the disturbances of 1929” allocated another 433,000 pounds.

 

Like the riots earlier in the decade, afterward the British appointed Sir William Shaw to head an inquiry into the causes of the riots. The Shaw Commission found that the violence occurred due to “racial animosity on the part of the Arabs, consequent upon the disappointment of their political and national aspirations and fear for their economic future.” The report claimed that the Arabs feared economic domination by a group who seemed to have, from their perspective, unlimited funding from abroad. The Commission reported that the conflict stemmed from different interpretations of British promises to both Arabs and Jews. The Commission acknowledged the ambiguity of former British statements and recommended that the government clearly define its intentions for Palestine. It also recommended that the issue of further Jewish immigration be more carefully considered to avoid “a repetition of the excessive immigration of 1925 and 1926.” The issue of land tenure would only be eligible for review if new methods of cultivation stimulated considerable growth of the agricultural sector. The Shaw Commission frustrated Zionists, but the two subsequent reports issued on the future of Palestine were more disturbing.

 

The Hope Simpson report of 1930 painted an unrealistic picture of the economic capacity of the country. It cast doubt on the prospect of industrialization and incorrectly asserted that no more than 20,000 families could be accommodated by the land. The Hope Simpson report was overshadowed, however, by the simultaneous release of the Passfield White Paper, which reflected colonial Secretary Passfield’s deep-seated animus toward Zionism. This report asserted that Britain’s obligations to the Arabs were very weighty and should not be overlooked to satisfy Jewish interests. Many argued that the Passfield Paper overturned the Balfour Declaration, essentially saying that Britain should not plan to establish a Jewish state. The Passfield Paper greatly upset Jews, and interestingly, also the labor and conservative parties in the British Parliament. The result of this widespread outcry to the Secretary’s report was a letter from British Prime Minister MacDonald to Dr. Chaim Weizmann, reaffirming the commitment to create a Jewish homeland.

 

The Arabs found rioting to be a very effective political tool because the British attitude toward violence against Jews, and their response to the riots, encouraged more outbreaks of violence. In each riot, the British would make little or no effort to prevent the Arabs from attacking the Jews. After each incident, a commission of inquiry would try to establish the cause of the riot. The conclusions were always the same: the Arabs were afraid of being displaced by Jewish immigrants. To stop the disturbances, the commissions routinely recommended that restrictions be made on Jewish immigration.

 

Thus, the Arabs came to recognize that they could always stop Jewish immigration by staging a riot. Despite the restrictions placed on its growth, the Jewish population increased to more than 160,000 by the 1930s, and the community became solidly entrenched in Palestine. Unfortunately, as the Jewish presence grew stronger, so did the Arab opposition. The riots brought recognition from the international Jewish community to the struggle of the settlers in Palestine, and more than $600,000 was raised for an emergency fund that was used to finance the cost of restoring destroyed or damaged homes, establish schools, and build nurseries.

The mufti’s war against the Jews

In 1937, the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Amin al-Husseini released an “Appeal to All Muslims of the World,” urging them “to cleanse their lands of the Jews” and laying the foundation for the anti-Semitic arguments used by radical Arab nationalists and Islamists to this day.

SEAN DURNS July 24, 2019 / JNS https://www.jns.org/opinion/the-muftis-war-against-the-jews/

 

(July 24, 2019 / JNS) This month marks the 45th anniversary of the death of Amin al-Husseini, the one-time Grand Mufti of Jerusalem and Nazi collaborator. Hailed as a “pioneer” by current Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas, during World War II al-Husseini raised SS regiments in the Balkans, promoted the Reich’s propaganda in the Arab world, toured death camps and plotted the genocide of Middle Eastern Jewry. After he escaped justice, conventional wisdom has it that the Mufti ceased to be a political force in the post-war years. But conventional wisdom is wrong.

 

Declassified CIA documents—many revealed for the first time—and a recent book tell a different story, one in which al-Husseini continued to be influential more than a quarter-century after the war’s end. Although he would never regain the power that he once wielded, the Mufti remained a force to be reckoned with. Intelligence agencies closely monitored him, and Arab regimes variously sought his support or his assassination. Through it all he remained not only an unapologetic anti-Semite, but also an inveterate schemer.

 

The Mufti’s rise to power was itself owed to intrigues. The British, who ruled Mandate Palestine after the collapse of the Ottoman Empire, made al-Husseini the grand mufti of Jerusalem in 1921, making him both the country’s highest Muslim cleric and leading Arab political figure.

 

As Wolfgang Schwanitz and the late Barry Rubin revealed in their 2014 book Nazis, Islamists and the Making of the Modern Middle East, the 24-year-old with no religious training was likely chosen in recognition of his service as a spy for the British in the final years of World War I. The decision, the historians conclude, “was one of the most remarkable errors of judgment ever made in a region rife with them.”

 

Indeed, al-Husseini would spend the next two decades inciting anti-Jewish violence and refusing numerous British-led attempts to broker peace. By the 1930s, the Mufti was actively seeking—and receiving—support from fascist Italy and Nazi Germany. U.S. intelligence would later conclude that the 1936-39 Arab Revolt, in which Palestinians led by al-Husseini murdered rivals, Jews and British officials, “was able to continue only because of Nazi funding.”

 

In October 1937, the now ex-Mufti fled to Lebanon, but not before he released an “Appeal to All Muslims of the World,” in which he “urged them to cleanse their lands of the Jews … and laid the foundation for the anti-Semitic arguments used by radical Arab nationalists and Islamists down to this day,” note Schwanitz and Rubin. He would eventually make his way to Berlin, where he would aid the Axis powers, befriend high-ranking Nazi officials like Heinrich Himmler and Adolf Eichmann, and, in a Nov. 28 1941 meeting with Adolf Hitler, ask for “a free hand to eradicate every last Jew from Palestine and the Arab world.”

 

At war’s end, al-Husseini was considered a war criminal by Yugoslavia and implicated for his role in committing war crimes. Nonetheless, the French government, which briefly captured him, allowed him to network and regroup, and apparently planned on using him to further their post-war ambitions for the region. When the Mufti fled and made his way to Egypt, little effort was made to bring him to justice. Sheltered and supported by Egypt’s King Farouk, the Mufti helped raise forces to attack the fledgling Jewish state during its War of Independence and plotted against Jordan’s King Abdullah, whom he viewed as too pro-British and too willing to compromise with the Israeli government.

 

In 1949, U.S. intelligence was told that Abdullah’s advisers had sent assassins after al-Husseini. But the Mufti, who had plotted Abdullah’s assassination for years, struck first; his henchmen murdered the Hashemite king in 1951 in front of the regent’s grandson, Hussein. Other Arab politicians who contemplated an accord with Israel were similarly targeted, including former Lebanese Prime Minister Riad al-Sulh.

 

Although in January 1950 it was reported that the Mufti was “abrupt” and “irritable,” and his “power is on the wane,” the next year would witness a flurry of activity by the Nazi collaborator. In 1951 alone, the Mufti created an intelligence apparatus, traveled to Pakistan to preside over the World Muslim Conference, visited Iran to meet with anti-Shah clerics and figures, conferred with Egyptian and Saudi Arabian foreign ministers, traveled to the ceasefire lines in Kashmir and was the guest of the president of the Syrian Chamber. A 1953 document detailing a trip to Beirut noted: “Not only has the Mufti been greeted by callers of all ranks, but scarcely a day has passed without his being the honored luncheon or dinner guest of some dignitary.”

 

In early 1950s Cairo, the Nazi collaborator lived in a “luxurious two-story 16 room house” with “a retinue of about 70,” including 20 “Palestinian bodyguards,” and “four male private secretaries and three chauffeurs to drive his two limousines.”

 

In October 1951, U.S. intelligence warned of a “possible terrorist campaign” by al-Husseini, “who has the combined forces of the [Muslim] Brotherhood and his own terrorist organization” targeting British nationals in four Arab countries, as well as the “property and personnel of the trans-Arabian pipeline.” The Mufti enjoyed close relations with the Brotherhood which used his “spacious home in Jerusalem” for their “Palestine headquarters” where, a neighbor reported in 1947, they read from the Koran, prepared for “a jihad” and chanted “Allah Akbar” after messages from Brotherhood founder Hassan al-Banna were broadcast on a loudspeaker.

 

U.S. intelligence managed to capture correspondence showing that the Mufti was regularly briefed on terrorist activities and had operatives traversing the Middle East. As late as 1962, he was still plotting to assassinate opponents. And, as late as 1965, the CIA was warning that Husseini “has instructed key followers” in Jordan to “reactivate” old units for attacks against Israel. The Agency noted that the Mufti was even purchasing “arms and ammunition” that were “remnants of the 1948” conflict.

 

Those same arms, Rubin and Schwanitz point out, were procured via Nazi funds the Mufti made use of long after the Second World War. The Mufti also depended on the largesse of various Arab regimes, including Farouk’s EgyptSaudi Arabia, and elements in Iraq and Syria. Ever the schemer, the Mufti eventually had a falling out with Farouk, as well as his successor, Nasser, who reportedly sent assassins after him.

 

By 1967, al-Husseini had reached a détente with Hussein’s Jordan, which even allowed him to visit Jerusalem shortly before the Six-Day War, in the hopes that the Mufti would help counter Nasser and the then-Egyptian-controlled Palestine Liberation Organization. Amazingly enough, the Mufti even fed intelligence to Hussein—the man whose grandfather he had murdered—about Yasser Arafat, a distant cousin of al-Husseini who he formally anointed as his successor following a Dec. 29, 1968 meeting near Beirut.

 

By the time of his death in Beirut on July 4, 1974, the Mufti’s legacy was secure. Arafat would similarly play Arab regimes against each other and make war on the Jewish state. A mosque financed by al-Husseini and German ex-Nazis has, in recent years, been linked to Islamist terror groups like Al-Qaeda. And much of the rhetoric employed by al-Husseini—such as comparing Zionists to Nazis—remains common today.

“History,” the writer William Faulkner famously observed, “is not was. It is.”

Update on Yasser Arafat and the Grand Mufti

January 31, 2008 https://gatesofvienna.blogspot.com/2008/01/update-on-yasser-arafat-and-grand-mufti.html

I referred in my previous post to the blood relationship between Yasser Arafat and the late Grand Mufti of Jerusalem, Mohammad Amin al-Husayni. Snouck and others disagreed with my assertion, citing Wikipedia to show that Arafat and al-Husayni were not related.

 

I don’t know who is correct — I’m not always willing to consider Wikipedia a reliable source on its own — but I’m not alone in asserting a consanguinity between the two famous Jew-haters.

 

Some sources say that Arafat was a nephew, and others that he was a cousin, of the Grand Mufti. According to Masada2000:

 

Eventually the leadership of the PLO was taken over by a man named Rahman Abdul Rauf al-Qudwa al-Husseini. Al-Husseini was a nephew and great admirer of Uncle Haj Amin al-Husseini. He was born in Cairo in 1929 and grew up in the Gaza strip. His mother, Hamida, was a cousin of the Grand Mufti. Due to internal Arab strife, his father Abdul Rauf al-Qudwa was forced to flee Gaza where the family took refuge in Egypt.

 

Al-Husseini’s cousin is Faisal al-Husseini who is the grandson of Haj Amin al-Husseini and the PLO representative in Jerusalem who has directed attacks on the Jews praying at the Western Wall. When Rahman Abdul Rauf al-Qudwa al-Husseini enrolled at the University of Cairo in 1951, he decided to conceal his true identity and registered under the name “Yasser Arafat.”

 

If I remember correctly from my undergraduate cultural anthropology courses, in a traditional patrilineal kinship structure all older male blood relatives who are not direct ancestors are referred to as “uncles”, while those in one’s cohort are called “brothers”. Hence both these assertions could be true — the Grand Mufti was a cousin and also an uncle.

 

It’s also possible that there was no consanguineal relationship whatsoever, but that hasn’t been settled yet to my satisfaction.

Comments: Anonymous said… Haji Husseini was never elected as Mufti by the Palestinian people. In fact, when he ran for elections for Mufti of Jerusalem, he got the least number of Palestinian votes and came in fourth. The British than proceeded to appoint him as Mufti anyway despite the fact that the clerical establishment considered him a hooligan. Their reason-to balance the political aspirations of a competing clan.

 

Husseini was a British agent who turned against his masters by collaborating with the Nazis. He started out as a Turkish agent against the Arabs during the Ottoman era, than worked with the Brits against the turks during the famous Arab anti-ottoman rebellion, than he worked against the British empire by allying himself with the Germans during WWII.

All in all, an odious opportunist whose motto seems to be “the enemy of my enemy is my friend”.

Zenster said…HenrickWhat we’re dealing with is a genuine offspring of Nazi ideology. We stopped most of it in 1945, but we need to stop it again, now.

Without adding much more well-deserved fuel to this bonfire, I am still obliged to applaud Henrick‘s timely appraisal.

Consider these not-so-odd similarities between Islam and Nazism:

1) The way Islamists seek to recreate Hitler’s “final solution” and routinely speak of “finishing the job” begun by the Nazis as reflected in connections between the Grand Mufti of Jerusalem Haj Amin el-Husseini, Yasser Arafat and Adolph Hitler. This vile goal and its complement, Holocaust Denial, represent a central feature of these evil ideologies.

2) To this day, Hitler’s “Mein Kampf” remains among one of the best-selling books in the Middle East.

3) Restoration of lost glory with respect to the Caliphate or the reconstruction of post-WWI Germany’s Reich both represent similar goals whose attainment would mean death on a massive scale for the globe’s population.

4) Assigning blame to the Jews for lack of success is used as a misdirection and scapegoat with regard to the actual faults of poor leadership or failed military adventurism.

5) Cultural purity as a dominant theme of philosophical chauvinism to elevate existing ideology above any possible dissent or questioning as personified by German “übermensch” or Islamic jihadist mentality.

6) The tacit approval shown by both moderate Muslims and WWII Germans for absolutism and the atrocities committed in its name despite any infrequent outward condemnation made by either of them.

7) The impossibility of negotiating with Nazis or Islamists due to their ideological mandates and pursuit of global dominance.

8) An absolute prohibition of apostasy under penalty of death.

9) The use of atrocities and crimes against humanity as legitimate tools of war.

10) Commingling religious tenets and fascist doctrine with the intent of disguising political ideology as theistic creed.

11) The imperative aspect of totally eliminating such a dire threat to world peace.

12) The totally unacceptable nature of appeasing or coexisting with such a dangerous mindset.

Yasser Arafat: Nazi trained

David N. Bossie is president of the Citizens United Foundation and former chief investigator for the House
August 9, 2002  https://www.washingtontimes.com/news/2002/aug/9/20020809-035905-1668r/

President Bush is right about Yasser Arafat. The Palestinian dictator is a lifelong terrorist and must be replaced before peace can be obtained. Mr. Arafat’s reign of terror includes last month’s Palestinian suicide bomber murdering 20 people, most of them schoolchildren on a Jerusalem bus, and the recent rash of bombings and shootings of Israeli innocents in retaliation for the killing of one his henchmen by the Israeli military. Since September 2000, Mr. Arafat’s terrorist network has murdered at least 560 Israelis and wounded thousands more, and last week murdered five Americans. These innocents are small change to the Palestinian dictator. Since he was a teen-ager in the 1940s, the co-winner of the 1994 Nobel Peace Prize has ordered the murder of thousands of civilians while waging war against the Jews.

 

Mr. Arafat’s mentor, Haj Amin Al Husseini, the grand mufti of Jerusalem, indoctrinated him with hatred toward Israel. The grand mufti led Palestinian Arabs from 1920 until Mr. Arafat succeeded him in 1967. The mufti encouraged Arab terrorism against Jewish immigrants to Palestine between the two world wars, and like Mr. Arafat today, the mufti piously disclaimed any responsibility for terrorist acts committed by his followers. In 1929 and 1936, the mufti personally led large-scale riots against Jewish settlers. During World War II, the mufti journeyed to Nazi Germany where he personally begged Adolf Hitler to invade British-ruled Palestine and rid it of Jews. The mufti received sympathy, but no help, from Hitler. Nevertheless, he broadcast radio tirades approving Hitler’s “final solution” of the Jewish problem.

 

The mufti barely escaped trial for treason by fleeing to Egypt in 1946. There he made young Yasser Arafat, then living in Cairo, his protege. The mufti secretly imported a former Nazi commando officer into Egypt to teach Mr. Arafat and other teenage recruits the fine points of guerrilla warfare. Mr. Arafat learned his lessons well; the mufti was so proud of him he even pretended the two of them were blood relations.

 

Mr. Arafat first shed Jewish blood during terrorist raids in 1947 and has kept it up ever since. He also became a leader in Palestinian politics and was the first Palestinian nationalist to declare, “Violence is the only solution,” that “Liberating Palestine could only take place through the barrel of a gun.” During the 1950s, Mr. Arafat lived and worked as an engineer in Kuwait. There, he recruited followers for Fatah, his Palestinian guerrilla group. Mr. Arafat also raised funds from rich Persian Gulf oil and construction millionaires in Saudi Arabia, Kuwait, Qatar and the United Arab Emirates. These Persian Gulf millionaires remain Mr. Arafat’s main financial backers a half-century later. They also comprise the al Qaeda terror network’s primary source of funding.

 

Mr. Arafat’s Fatah terror network began conducting murder raids into Israel from Syrian bases in 1964. Mr. Arafat’s raids triggered the 1967 Six Day War between Israel and its hostile Arab neighbors. Despite causing this disastrous defeat for the Arabs, which lost them strategic territory in Egypt, Syria and Jordan, Mr. Arafat emerged as a hero. The “Arab street” lauded Mr. Arafat for the purity of his hatred for Israel; they could have cared less that his actions resulted in military disaster. Mr. Arafat used his popularity to merge Fatah with the Palestine Liberation Organization in 1968. Since then Mr. Arafat has been on a mission, a man wholly dedicated to destroying Israel in order to replace it with a Palestinian state.

 

While Mr. Arafat’s anti-Israel terrorism is popular with Arab peoples, it is less beloved by their Arab rulers. Cheering for PLO terrorists who murder Israelis is much easier than controlling its murderous, undisciplined thugs. Mr. Arafat and his ruthless PLO terrorists were violently expelled from three different host countries: Syria in 1968; Jordan in 1971; and Lebanon in 1982. From 1982 to 1994, Mr. Arafat and the PLO resided in Tunisia. Mr. Arafat returned to world attention when he supported Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein during the 1990-91 Gulf War. This foolish move temporarily turned his Persian Gulf financial supporters against him. Mr. Arafat now seemed discredited.

 

The Palestinian Intifada uprising against Israeli rule beginning in 1987 rescued Mr. Arafat’s career. At first Mr. Arafat tried to stop the Intifada since it threatened his dictatorial control over the Palestinians. Mr. Arafat, a control freak, pays only lip service to democracy. PLO elections are always rigged. But the uprising in the Palestinian occupied territories continued, so Mr. Arafat began lending it military assistance. Israel tried everything to quell the Intifada, but nothing worked, so Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin and his foreign minister, Shimon Peres, cut a deal with Mr. Arafat in 1993. In return for limited autonomy by a Palestinian National Authority ruled by him, Mr. Arafat promised to renounce terrorism and accept Israel’s right to exist.

 

Mr. Arafat soon broke his promise to the Israelis. Palestinian terrorist bombings murdered 256 Israelis between September 1993 and September 2000. Mr. Arafat oversaw the assassinations of any Palestinian opposed to his one-man rule. Bill Clinton, vainly seeking a legacy for his disgraced presidency, assisted Mr. Arafat’s terror strategy. He convened an Israeli-Palestinian peace conference during the summer of 2000. Mr. Clinton’s bullying of Israel encouraged Mr. Arafat to step up terrorism.

 

Mr. Arafat is 72 now, an old man in a hurry. He is using American pressure on Israel to undermine the Jewish state in favor of a Palestinian state. We must beware of his past lies and broken promises. As President Bush says, Mr. Arafat must be replaced with a democratic Palestinian leader committed to peaceful coexistence with Israel.

Drop Dead, Jimmy Carter

The emailed rant that’s been making the forwarded-by-relatives rounds

(Vanessa Davis)

The Emails of Zion is a collection of messages from Jewish parents, uncles, aunts, grandparents, and others who are eager—often way too eager—to inform their children about issues of pressing concern to the Jewish community. Some of these emails may sound crazy, paranoid, ethnocentric, and/or racist, while others are disturbingly sane. These are the voices of our elders, lightly edited and presented for the convenience of their progeny, who are often too busy to write back.

Naomi, Thanks for sending this email. This is an important read. I wonder how the 80% Hebrews who refused to follow Moshe Rabbeinu into the exodus from Egypt, the nearly same number who voted for Obama, are reacting to Mr Graulich’s thoughts.

Dear Friends,

 

Are we impressed by Jimmy Carter’s belated apology? Me thinks not. His change of heart, which has conveniently come about just as his grandson is about to start a political career in which he needs Jewish votes, doesn’t pull at my heartstrings. Irwin N. Graulich, whose “Drop Dead Jimmy Carter” is making the internet rounds, I guess is of the same opinion.

 

Be warned: Not for the faint or forgiving of heart.

 

Naomi

 

Drop Dead Jimmy Carter

 

Sorry Mr. President–I just don’t forgive you. How dare you think you can demonize one of the most moral nations in history–and get away with your crimes. How dare you blame Jews for your pathetic world view, which gave credibility to the most evil characters on the face of the planet. Your apology is worthless.

 

President Jimmy Carter will undoubtedly be known as the worst president in American history. He allowed the Shah of Iran to fall and the evil Khomeni to gain power, giving Muslim extremism the fuel to spread like cancer throughout the world–ultimately leading to 9/11. His presidency was a true calamity from interest rates skyrocketing to 21.5% to the disastrous rescue attempt of the US embassy hostages, to the Carter “malaise” he created throughout America. A total catastrophe and tragedy would sum up the Carter administration at its best. I mean, a born and bred true Polish anti-western antisemite in the tradition of those who aided the Nazis, actually became his National Security Advisor—Zbigniew Brzezinski.

 

Carter’s cute little “al chayt” prayer of forgiveness is as impressive as Jeffrrey Dahmer’s apology cries. The ex-President finally realizes what a total putz he is–so what? “We must not permit criticisms for improvement to stigmatize Israel,” Carter wrote recently. Please Jimmy, save those platitudes for your wife.

 

You cannot write books filled with outright lies about Israel and Jews, going on lecture tours and media interviews–fraudulently accusing Israel of apartheid, occupation, war crimes, terrorism, obstacles to peace, targeting innocents and other despicable labels. And then you beg for forgiveness? I mean is that a joke Jimmy boy?

 

Ex-President Carter recently met with Hamas–the modern day version of the Nazis. Chamberlain redux? No, Carter is much, much worse. What Jimmy Carter has done is join the list of well known historical antisemites to create a new type of Jewish Blood Libel. With tremendous passion and foolishness, Carter pretty much alone gave credibility to the “Israel Blood Libel,” which propagated throughout mainstream Western democracies, especially in Europe, to falsely accuse Israel and Jews of using Arab/Muslim blood to expand Israel’s territory.

 

In a similar vein to his fellow antisemites throughout history, Carter focused on the blood of children in Gaza and the West Bank, as if Israel purposely targeted non Jewish children to explain their horrific deaths. The fact that terrorists stationed their weapons and missiles in schools was totally irrelevant to the Jimmy Carter immoral psyche.

 

These Jewish Libel accusations by someone who was an ex-president of the United States gave instant credibility to the lies coming out of the Arab and Muslim world. The original Jewish Blood Libel gave rise to attacks on Jews from the first century through the Middle Ages, the Renaissance, right up until the Nazi era. It was pretty much Jimmy Carter who created the modern day scenario which spurred attacks on Jews in France, England, Spain, Belgium, Mumbai, and many other countries.

 

It was obvious to Jews throughout history that the Jewish Blood Libel was all based on lies because the Jewish Bible, the Torah contains many specific laws against using blood in any way–even animal blood. This same Bible is filled with laws pertaining to the sin of harming innocents. Therefore, this concept of being extremely sensitive to hurting innocent people has become dominant in the Jewish psyche and behavior.

 

[…]

 

However, due to Carter’s Christian faith, he actually believes that all Jews should and will actually forgive him, showing a major difference between Judaism and Christianity about sin and forgiveness. Since Jesus’ death atones for the sins of those who have faith in Him, Carter mistakenly thinks that all Jews will ultimately forgive him and move on.

 

However, only non-Jewish Jews like Abe Foxman of the ADL, who have almost no knowledge of Judaism, will forgive Carter for his massive evil. According to Judaism, God Himself cannot forgive anyone for sins against another person. The only way that Carter can actually be forgiven, would be to go to every Jew worldwide and ask for forgiveness–not make his blanket empty announcement, because his grandson is running for office in a Jewish district in Georgia.

 

What is ironic about Carter is that he has committed the same “libel accusations” on America, creating the American Blood Libel. Carter’s comments over the last decade have included the rhetoric that “America is a torturer at Abu Ghraib, has performed criminal acts by water boarding in Guatanamo, we’re occupiers in Iraq and colonialists, we attack Arab countries for Halliburton or for oil,” etc. etc. Some day we can all expect an empty Carter apology to America.

 

So for the damage that Jimmy Carter has caused to both Israel and America, I do not forgive him and neither do many millions of other Jews or Americans. The best I can do for one of the most horrific American men of the past 3 decades is say, “Drop Dead Jimmy Carter,” and then you can ask your maker for forgiveness.

19 Attorneys General Slam Morningstar’s Surreptitious Effort to Impose ESG and Anti-Israel Investment Bias

“Following public reports into Morningstar’s alleged anti-Israel bias and concerns raised to my Office, we launched an investigation into Morningstar Inc. and Sustainalytics over potential consumer fraud issues. 18 attorneys general have now joined our investigation. These ESG investing firms are playing politics with pensions and real people’s livelihoods,” said Attorney General Schmitt.

Posted by , 23August2022 at 03:00pm https://legalinsurrection.com/2022/08/19-attorneys-general-slam-morningstars-surreptitious-effort-to-impose-esg-and-anti-israel-investment-bias/

 

Led by Missouri, nineteen states are investigating whether Morningstar, Inc., investment management firm’s Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) evaluations violate consumer-protection law and unfair trade practices.

 

ESG is an investment strategy that tries to reward companies who publicly adhere to politically-correct values of environmentalism, woke social justice issues like diversity, equity, and inclusion (DEI), and racial diversity in its leadership; and to pressure companies that don’t adhere to them into doing so.

 

Morningstar has been accused of anti-Israel bias. The investment management company attributed this to complaints following its April 2020 acquisition of the ESG ratings and research firm Sustainalytics. The Dutch company is one of the main firms rating companies based on their social responsibility, and Morningstar wanted a bigger presence in the fast-growing ESG market.

After initially blowing off the criticism, Morningstar began a review two weeks before the Illinois Investment Policy Board was set to blacklist the company, which would have barred state-run pension systems from investing in Morningstar.

 

Morningstar eventually offered a grudging, partial acknowledgment of bias at Sustainalytics. According to Morningstar’s June 2, 2022, public letter:

[I]n retrospect, our initial review was overly dismissive of the serious bias concerns raised by the organization JLens, the Illinois Investment Policy Board (IIPB), and other entities…

 

Based on these findings, White & Case made various recommendations in the report, which we have decided to adopt in full. Morningstar has discontinued the Human Rights Radar, and additional steps we are taking include but are not limited to: (1) embracing greater transparency as to Sustainalytics’ research sources and ratings methodology, (2) monitoring our internal processes to ensure greater consistency and adherence to our methodology, (3) adopting a style guide to ensure all research products are free from biased terminology, and (4) discontinuing further bespoke research on behalf of clients.

Nevertheless, Morningstar insisted there was “no evidence of pervasive or systemic bias against Israel across Sustainalytics products, including the Sustainalytics ESG Risk Rating.”

 

Not everyone is taking Morningstar’s word for it.

 

In mid-June, Richard Goldberg at Foundation for Defense of Democracies published a report explaining “just how pervasive and systemic that bias remains,” as his introductory summary put it.

Mansueto and Kapoor have touted these findings, including in a June 2 public statement, as evidence supporting Morningstar’s prior assertions that “[n]either Morningstar nor Sustainalytics supports the anti-Israel BDS campaign.”

 

Yet, notwithstanding the conclusions set forth at the beginning of the Report, the evidence collected and presented in the Report tells a different story. On a full reading of the Report, rather than exonerating Morningstar, the White & Case investigation instead demonstrates conclusively that Sustainalytics’ processes and products — including its flagship ESG Risk Ratings product — are infected by systemic bias against Israel. Specifically, the Report conclusively demonstrates that:

  1. Sustainalytics relies heavily, if not quite exclusively, on deeply flawed, anti-Israel sources, including anti-Israel non-governmental organizations (NGOs) such as Who Profits, Human Rights Watch, and Amnesty International.
  2. Companies that are in any way involved in the Israeli economy are automatically identified as complicit in human rights abuses in all Sustainalytics’ core products and are thus disproportionately punished in Sustainalytics ratings compared to companies doing business in any other country.

In response to the Report, Morningstar announced that it would implement minor remedial measures to enhance the transparency and reliability of its ESG products. While a modest start, these measures are not sufficient to address the underlying and pervasive anti-Israel biases revealed in the Report. In addition to the minor remedial steps Morningstar announced it would take to address concerns of bias within Sustainalytics, Morningstar must:

  1. Prohibit reliance on biased and radical anti-Israel sources;
  2. Remove Israel from the list of conflict zones that automatically trigger a response by Sustainalytics’ Incidents team; and
  3. Address, across all its core products, the root causes of Sustainalytics’ problematic downgrading, based on alleged but unfounded complicity in human rights violations, of companies that do business in Israel.

In mid-July, a group of Jewish organizations sent Morningstar a letter asking the organization to take additional steps to root out its anti-Israel bias.

 

Most importantly, last month Missouri’s Attorney General Eric Schmitt launched an investigation into Morningstar, which other states have now joined. Schmitt explained:

Following public reports into Morningstar’s alleged anti-Israel bias and concerns raised to my Office, we launched an investigation into Morningstar Inc. and Sustainalytics over potential consumer fraud issues. 18 attorneys general have now joined our investigation. These ESG investing firms are playing politics with pensions and real people’s livelihoods.

Missouri passed an anti-BDS law in July 2020, but it only prevents the government from contracting with BDS supporters. As noted in Schmitt’s statement quoted above, the current investigation officially targets potential consumer fraud or unfair trade practices. The AG is looking into whether Morningstar and Sustainalytics were secretly boycotting or enabling a boycott against Israel, and whether that violated laws regulating business practices.

 

Schmitt sent civil investigative demands to Morningstar and Sustainalytics. The demands include 43 interrogatories (a fancy legal name for questions) and/or document requests – most are both. Among them are (*snooze alert* – they’re written in Legalese):

  • Identify and provide all documents and communications relating to the March 16, 2021 statement, “Morningstar Affirms Integrity of ESG Research and Ratings,” including all documents referenced in the statement and documents relating to your internal review.
  • Identify and provide all documents and communications with the Illinois Investment Policy Board relating to ESG Services or BDS.
  • Identify and provide all Documents and Communications relating to changes to your ESG services relating to: (1) the May 11, 2022 report from White & Case, “Report of Independent Investigative Counsel Regarding Alleged Anti-Israel Bias in Morningstar, Inc. ESG Products and Services” (“White & Case Report”); (2) Your June 2, 2022 statement, “A Letter from Joe Mansueto and Kunal Kapoor”; and/or (3) the June 22, 2022 meeting of the Illinois Investment Policy Board Committee on Israel Boycott Restrictions.
  • Identify and provide all documents and communications with any federal government or state government entity relating to ESG Services and BDS.
  • Identify and provide all documents and communications with any third-party relating to concerns, complaints, or criticisms about ESG Services and BDS.
  • Identify and provide all documents ranking news sources or assessing their reliability for any of your ESG Services, and identify and provide the “blacklist” and “watchlist” of sources used by the Incidents team researchers.
  • Identify and provide the Human Rights Radar methodology document, process map, description of standard operating procedures, and analyst guidance document, including all draft, final, and updated versions thereof.
  • Identify and provide all documents and communications relating to the Global Standards Engagement 2018 report and 2021 update report containing bespoke research on the Israeli/Palestinian conflict area.
  • Identify and provide any document provided to or reviewed by White & Case in the course of preparing its May 11, 2022 report, “Report of Independent Investigative Counsel Regarding Alleged Anti-Israel Bias in Morningstar, Inc. ESG Products and Services” (“White & Case Report”).
  • Identify and provide all documents and communications with clients trying to dissuade them from doing business in and/or with Israel.
  • Provide all documents and communications between any GSE (Global Standards Engagement) engagement manager and any person or entity relating to business conducted in, with, or relating to the State of Israel, any Israeli/Palestinian conflict areas, and/or BDS.

The eighteen AGs who have joined Missouri’s include fifteen Republicans, whose states have been identified, and three others that are unidentified. The fifteen are Arkansas, Georgia, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Montana, Nebraska, Ohio, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Texas, Utah, and Virginia.

 

Eighteen U.S. states join Missouri probe into Morningstar ESG

Richard Goldberg-tweet-17August2022- BREAKING: 18 state AGs join Missouri investigation into Morningstar's boycott of Israel through its ESG research and company ratings. Game-changer.

Richard Goldberg-tweet-17August2022- BREAKING: 18 state AGs join Missouri investigation into Morningstar’s boycott of Israel through its ESG research and company ratings. Game-changer.

All but Montana and Nebraska have anti-BDS laws. Montana got as far as passing a bill in the state House back in February 2017, but the effort got no further. A Nebraska lawmaker introduced an anti-BDS bill into the legislature in January 2022, but it was indefinitely postponed in April.

 

Since the other three states haven’t been identified, it is unknown whether they have taken action to combat the anti-Israel boycott movement. Several Democratic-run states have also passed anti-BDS laws.

 

On the other hand, the states may be motivated by a more generalized concern over efforts to impose woke policies on businesses. Pushback efforts against this have been much in the news lately. For instance, Gov. DeSantis of Florida (which is not one of the states included in the above list) has made some well-publicized efforts in that direction.

 

There is a great deal of overlap between the nineteen AGs investigating Morningstar and the nineteen states whose Attorneys General (led by Arizona’s AG) have written to the Securities and Exchange Commission asking it to investigate whether Blackrock was properly prioritizing its fiduciary responsibilities to its investors, given its ESG objectives as well as its ties to China. Those nineteen states are: Alabama, Arizona, Arkansas, Georgia, Idaho, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Ohio, South Carolina, Texas, West Virginia, and Utah.

Top US Banks Under Investigation Over ESG And Climate Action

by Tyler Durden 29October2022 – 11:00 PM https://www.zerohedge.com/geopolitical/top-us-banks-under-investigation-over-esg-and-climate-action

Authored by Alex Newman via The Epoch Times (emphasis ours),

A coalition of 19 state attorneys general from across the country launched a formal investigation into six major U.S. banks last week citing legal concerns about banks’ “ESG” investing and their involvement with a United Nations alliance fighting CO2 emissions.

 

The banks “appear to be colluding with the U.N. to destroy American companies” and undermine the nation’s best interests, one of the AGs warned in a statement e-mailed to The Epoch Times.

 

Another AG argued that these U.N.-inspired banking policies were resulting in jobs being sent to communist China as the regime there continues building coal-fired power plants to ensure low-cost, reliable energy.

 

The new investigation is the latest salvo by Republican-led states amid growing nationwide concerns about the “woke” policies of financial institutions and other powerful business interests.

 

Multiple attorneys general who spoke to The Epoch Times about the probe said it was their job to enforce consumer protection laws and protect citizens in their states from potentially illegal activity by companies.

 

In particular, officials are investigating the banks’ involvement in the controversial United Nations Net-Zero Banking Alliance (NZBA). The global network of banks, convened and overseen by the U.N., pledges to eliminate emissions of so-called “greenhouse gases” by 2050 by transforming their lending and investment practices.

 

Numerous AGs sounded the alarm about the U.N.’s involvement in targeting key American industries as banks cede policymaking influence to the global organization.

 

The top law-enforcement officers for the group of mostly Republican-controlled states said they have reason to believe the banks being investigated agreed to align their investing and loan portfolio with U.N. emissions goals.

 

The goals, outlined in the U.N. Paris Agreement on climate change, call for a transformation of the economy away from traditional energy sources. Government and business leaders in developed nations including the United States and Western Europe agreed to pursue significant reductions in CO2.

 

The effect of these policies, the AGs warned, would be to starve key industries of credit—especially companies in the energy and agriculture sectors that are critical to the prosperity and even the national security of the United States.

 

The banks being scrutinized by the top lawmen for their states include Bank of America, Wells Fargo, Morgan Stanley, JPMorgan Chase, Goldman Sachs, and Citigroup.

 

Each of the companies was served last week with civil investigative demands, essentially acting as a subpoena, demanding that they turn over documents related to their involvement in the U.N. NZBA.

 

The banks are also expected to provide records of all “Global Climate Initiatives” in which they are participating, and how these U.N.-backed agendas are being incorporated into their businesses, civil investigative demands reviewed by The Epoch Times show.

 

In addition, the banks are being asked to give details on the involvement of their CEOs in the process and how the decisions were made.

 

Also under scrutiny are banking actions related to “Environmental, Social, and Governance” (ESG) investing. The controversial metrics take into consideration environmental and social policies in making business decisions, rather than simply the traditional metrics of risk and return.

 

Critics say ESG investing is being used to impose unpopular and economically harmful ideas on Americans while forcing businesses across the economy to adopt them. The term is increasingly being linked by opponents to a woke mentality, “social justice” ideas, and radical left-wing politics.

 

AGs Speak Out

“We got involved in this investigation because this is another attempt by the liberal woke left to shove their ideas down our throats, and since they can’t change the laws using the political process, they want to do it by weaponizing business,” said Montana Attorney General Austin Knudsen. “They are doing this out of some misplaced desire to advance their liberal agenda.”

 

But it may not be legal, Knudsen and many other state AGs say.

 

“This seems to run afoul of our consumer protection laws that I’m in charge of enforcing,” Knudsen continued in a phone interview with The Epoch Times, saying his office and elected officials at all levels were under growing public pressure to address the issue and potential legal violations.

 

“It gets cold here in Montana,” the attorney general added. “We need a robust energy sector to keep our homes warm—and we certainly can’t do that using wind and solar.”

 

Knudsen, who is also working with a coalition of state AGs focusing on investment behemoth BlackRock, said this was essentially a continuation of the same issue: Powerful banking and financial interests seeking to improperly impose their views on the public.

 

You have corporate banking and the investment industry trying to flex their muscle and pressure businesses into a political direction and political action,” he said. “But that’s not their function. Their job is to provide credit and earn profit for shareholders.

 

“This is a continuation of the woke ESG garbage that we’re having to deal with more and more,” the Montana AG added.

 

Going forward, Knudsen said “everything is on the table,” depending on the outcome of the investigation. Under consumer protection laws, the state has the authority to levy civil fines.

 

Knudsen said Montana lawmakers, who are also under growing public pressure, intend to take strong legislative action when the state legislature reconvenes next year.

 

The effects of these banking policies are hurting numerous legal industries, he continued, pointing to firearms businesses as examples of those “being pinched” by financial services and even insurance companies.

 

These companies need to be held accountable, so we are all looking at what authorities are available,” Knudsen said. “All options are definitely on the table.”

 

In Oklahoma, Attorney General John O’Connor said his office joined the investigation for two primary reasons: “America is not run by the U.N.,” and “these banks are attacking Oklahoma fossil-fuel producers and consumers as well as Oklahoma jobs.”

 

“The Net-Zero Banking Alliance, overseen by the U.N., will destroy companies that are engaged in fossil fuel-related activities or depend on them for energy or these lenders for capital,” he explained in a statement emailed to The Epoch Times. “It is unacceptable that these banks are pushing an investment strategy designed to impose a leftist social and economic agenda.”

 

The subpoenas sent to the banks by O’Connor’s office include requests to explain how NZBA objectives are being incorporated into the banks’ operations and what actions they have taken to eliminate hydrocarbon energy from the economy.

 

Indiana Attorney General Todd Rokita sounded the alarm about what his office described as an “apparent conspiracy” involving the U.N. and the banks being probed.

 

“These banks appear to be colluding with the U.N. to destroy American companies that specialize in fossil fuels or otherwise depend on them for energy,” Rokita said. “They are pushing an investment strategy designed not to maximize financial returns but to impose a leftist social and economic agenda that cannot otherwise be implemented through the ballot box.”

 

Blasting ESG investing as a “scheme,” the Indiana AG vowed to protect the people of his state.

 

“This new woke-ism in the financial sector poses a real threat to everyday Hoosiers,” he continued. “Indiana’s farmers, truck drivers, and fuel-industry workers are hurt when the radical Left attacks whole segments of our economy. And it’s troubling that these banks in the Net-Zero Banking Alliance are taking marching orders from U.N. globalists all-too-eager to undermine America’s best interests.”

 

Missouri Attorney General Eric Schmitt warned that the Net-Zero Banking Alliance was a major threat to key industries in his state.

 

Missouri farmers, oil leasing companies, and other businesses that are vital to Missouri’s and America’s economy will be unable to get a loan because of this alliance,” Schmitt warned in a statement e-mailed to The Epoch Times.

 

Missouri last week became the latest state to divest from BlackRock over its woke policies, announcing that it would withdraw some $500 million of pension fund investments held with the increasingly controversial financial giant.

 

Blasting the banks for “ceding authority to the U.N.,” the Missouri AG said these actions would result in the “killing of American companies that don’t subscribe to the woke climate agenda.”

 

“These banks are accountable to American laws—we don’t let international bodies set the standards for our businesses,” added Schmitt.

 

The Missouri lawman has become increasingly vocal about the threat he believes these trends pose to the nation, sounding the alarm about how these woke policies benefit communist China and its economy at America’s expense.

 

This summer, Schmitt’s office also sent civil investigative demands involving ESG investing to Morningstar and Sustainalytics.

 

Attorney General Ken Paxton of Texas vowed to get to the bottom of the relationship between the U.N. and the banks’ potential legal violations.

 

“The radical climate change movement has been waging an all-out war against American energy for years, and the last thing Americans need right now are corporate activists helping the left bankrupt our fossil fuel industry,” the Texas AG said.

 

“If the largest banks in the world think they can get away with lying to consumers or taking any other illegal action designed to target a vital American industry like energy, they’re dead wrong,” he continued. “This investigation is just getting started, and we won’t stop until we get to the truth.”

 

Other states that are investigating include Arizona, Arkansas, Kansas, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Nebraska, Tennessee, and Virginia. At least five other states have joined but cannot be named due to state confidentiality policies.

 

In August, a similar coalition of state AGs warned BlackRock CEO Larry Fink, a board member of the World Economic Forum and the powerful Council on Foreign Relations, that his company’s policies may be illegal.

 

Our states will not idly stand for our pensioners’ retirements to be sacrificed for BlackRock’s climate agenda,” they warned, pointing to several potential legal violations involving the politically connected firm’s ESG investing.

Effects and Implications

Bloomberg, a media outlet that has vocally supported the U.N. climate agenda and was founded by Glasgow Financial Alliance for Net Zero (GFANZ) co-chair Michael Bloomberg, complained this month that Fink and other key financial leaders would not be at the upcoming U.N. COP27 climate conference in Egypt.

 

“With more than $135 trillion in assets, GFANZ was supposed to be the planet’s ticket to a more climate-friendly form of finance. But a year later, it’s unclear how members will live up to their promises,” Bloomberg writer Alastair Marsh reported, pointing to GOP states’ efforts as part of the reason.

 

Florida Gov. Ron DeSantis is among the Republican political leaders aiming to stop woke policies at banks. He is asking lawmakers to pass legislation in the 2023 session to rein in ESG policies.

What Was the Holy Temple?

The first Beit Hamikdash was built by King Solomon in the year 833 BCE, and destroyed by the Babylonian king Nebuchadnezzar in the year 423 BCE. The second Beit Hamikdash was completed in the year 349 BCE by Jewish returnees from the Persian exile, led by Ezra and Nehemiah. In the year 19 BCE, King Herod completed dramatic renovations to the dilapidated Temple, but marauding armies of the Roman Empire destroyed it in 69 CE, when the current galut (exile) began.

OTTOMAN EMPIRE CURRENCY

https://encyclopedia-of-money.blogspot.com/2011/10/ottoman-empire-currency.html

At its height, the Ottoman Empire ruled present-day Turkey, the Middle East, North Africa (including Egypt), and southeastern Europe. By World War I, the Ottoman Empire had largely disintegrated, and after the war the core of the empire was organized as the Republic of Turkey. Although the Sunni-Ottoman dynasty dates back to the 13th century, the empire became a power to be reckoned with after the capture of Constantinople in 1453. Perhaps the most famous sultan of the Ottoman Empire was Suleiman the Magnificent (1520–1566), whose conquest in the 16th century gave the Ottoman Empire control of East-West trade.

The prime coins of the Ottoman Empire were the akce, silver coins that provided the basis of monetary  calculations for prices and wages. Suleiman’s architect earned 55 akce per day. A niche for smaller coins was filled by the dirham, with its quarter, and the manghir, which were copper. The most important gold coin was the ashrafit, patterned after the Venetian ducat. To compete with Austrian talers, which rapidly gained acceptance in areas of the empire, Suleiman III (1687–1691) minted a silver coin known as the qurush.

To meet the coinage needs of the empire, the Ottomans purchased blank coins from Austria and the Dutch.
Unlike other Islamic coinage, which often bore religious inscriptions, Ottoman coins bore inscriptions of the Sultan’s titles. One coin bore an inscription that translates as “sultan of the two lands and lord of the two seas.”

Mechanized methods of minting coins first appeared in Turkey in the mid- 19th century, two hundred years later than the widespread adoption of these methods in Europe. Iran saw its first mechanized mint established in Tehran in 1876. In the 20th century, European mechanized mints supplied coins for colonized areas of the Ottoman Empire.

Paper money also made its debut in the mid-19th century. The Ottomans led the way with the issuance of notes in Turkey, setting an example that was soon followed by other provinces of the empire. Iran waited until the late 1880s to issue banknotes. Colonial powers often introduced paper money, paving the way for newly independent countries to issue their own paper money. In the 20th century, the paper money issued in countries of the old Ottoman Empire was often printed in European countries. A British firm, De La Rue, printed paper money for Iraq until the invasion of Kuwait in 1990 cut Iraq off from Europe.

Since her inception on May 14, 1948 when Israel announced she was a state, she was attacked within 5 minutes and was engaging in her War of Independence.  This had actually started on November 29, 1947 when Arabs attacked her, responding with much violence to the United Nations resolution on Palestine, and it lasted until the signing of the Armistice Agreements in 1949.  An armistice  is a temporary suspension of hostilities by agreement between the 2 sides; a truce.  That was a terrible time when Israel was invaded by the regular armies of Egypt, Transjordan, Iraq, Syria and Lebanon and a Saudi-Arabian contingent and  “contingents from Yemen, Morocco, and Sudan also joined the war.  6,000 Israelis were killed in the War of Independence;  out of a population of 650,000, more than in all the subsequent wars

We are family: the secret of Israel’s success

Elder of Ziyon 22August2022 https://elderofziyon.blogspot.com/2022/08/we-are-family-secret-of-israels-success.html

 

The Economist reports that the birthrates of Israeli Jews has been rising and that of Arabs in Israel and the territories has been dropping – and the Israeli Jewish birthrate is bucking the trends around the world.

 

In short, the demographic bomb that was predicted for decades to destroy Israel has nearly fizzled.

 

But the article then touches on an important point that rarely makes it to the media.

In Israel, birth rates are converging between Jews and Muslims

Religious Jews there have bucked the trend of falling fertility elsewhere

 NURSERY New born Israel babies

NURSERY New born Israel babies

18August2022 | TEL AVIV https://www.economist.com/middle-east-and-africa/2022/08/18/in-israel-birth-rates-are-converging-between-jews-and-muslims

“If an israeli woman has fewer than three children, she feels as if she owes everyone an explanation—or an apology.” That, at any rate, is the view of a leading Israeli demographer. When she visits London she is struck by its dearth of toy shops. Israelis have many more children than their counterparts elsewhere in the rich world. Whereas the average Israeli woman has 2.9, her British and French peers have 1.6 and 1.8 respectively.

 

Demography in the Holy Land has geopolitical as well as economic consequences. Of Israel’s population of 9.5m, Israeli Arabs, mostly Muslim, make up about 21% of the total, while Jews account for roughly 74%. But include people in the Israeli-occupied West Bank and Gaza, and the Jewish majority falls to barely half.

 

This, in a nutshell, is the basis of Israel’s trilemma. It cannot have at the same time a strong Jewish majority, all the land it conquered in 1967 and full democracy that does not discriminate against Arabs. So numbers matter. Israeli and Palestinian leaders have long scrutinised birth rates.

 

Yasser Arafat, who led the Palestinians for three-and-a-half decades, described “the womb of the Arab woman” as his “strongest weapon”. Demographic projections used to suggest that Arabs living between the Jordan river and the Mediterranean would eventually outnumber Jews. This certainly worried Binyamin Netanyahu before he became Israel’s longest-serving prime minister. In 2003 he lamented that the birth rate of Israeli Arabs, then much higher, was imperilling Israel’s Jewishness, irrespective of the trend in the West Bank and Gaza.

 

At the time there was indeed a wide demographic gap. In Israel itself Arab women were having almost twice as many babies on average as Jewish women. But in the past few decades this gap has disappeared, as the birth rate of Israeli Arabs has fallen while that of Israeli Jews has risen.

Israel-Average number of births per woman 1980-2020-The Economist

JerusalemCats Comments: This compares to the Pew Study

Israel is not America

Pew 2016.03.08 Haredim have more children

Pew 2016.03.08 Haredim have more children

In 1960 the fertility rate of Israeli Arabs stood at 9.3. In the next 35 years it dropped by almost half, to 4.7, before sliding to 3.0 today (see chart). The birth rate of Palestinians in Gaza and the West Bank also declined, from 4.6 in 2003 to 3.8 in 2019. In this Palestinians and Israeli Arabs have followed a path trodden by women elsewhere. Across the OECD, a club mostly of rich countries, the average fertility rate has fallen from almost three in 1970 to 1.6, well below the rate of about 2.1 needed to keep a population from shrinking.

 

Globally Muslims have the highest fertility rate of any religious group, according to the Pew Research Centre. Yet even this rate has fallen sharply, from 4.3 in 1995 to 2.9 in 2015. Seven Arab countries were among the 12 recording the world’s biggest drops in fertility between the late 1970s and mid-2000s. In Iran, whose religious leaders have long called on women to have more babies, the birth rate has fallen from 7.0 in 1984 to 1.7.

 

This makes the rising birth rate of Jewish Israelis all the more surprising. Between 1960 and 1990 their fertility declined from 3.4 to 2.6, suggesting they were in step with their sisters elsewhere. But then they began to buck the trend, driving the birth rate back up to its current level of 3.1.

 

Prayers v productivity

 

Almost all this increase is caused by Israel’s growing number of ultra-Orthodox (or Haredi) Jews, who have a fertility rate of 6.6, more than double the national average and three times the rate of secular Jews. As a result the share of Haredim in Israel’s population has more or less doubled every generation, notes Dan Ben-David, an economist at Tel Aviv University and the Shoresh Institute, a think-tank. Though Haredim are just 13% of the population, their offspring make up 19% of Israeli children under the age of 14, and 24% of those under the age of four. Israel’s statistical agency reckons that under present trends half of Israeli children will be Haredi by 2065.

 

Such fruitfulness may please rabbis and Jewish nationalists. But it is also changing the character of Israel and threatening its economy, argues Mr Ben-David. Most ultra-Orthodox Jews send their boys to study Torah in religious schools rather than make them learn subjects, such as maths and science, needed for a job in Israel’s high-tech economy. Less than half of Haredi men enter the workforce: most keep studying ancient texts in adulthood. They are often financially supported by their wives and subsidised by the state.

 

There are several reasons why the birth rate among Haredim has remained so high. Many want big families to make up for the millions of Jews killed in the Holocaust, or believe they are serving God by multiplying. “I didn’t do any [family] planning,” says Yerach Toker, who has six children. “A lot of things are in God’s hands, and this is one of them.”

 

Haredi women also tend to marry and have children at a younger age than secular Jews. And because ultra-Orthodox communities have tried hard to close themselves off from outside influences such as television and the internet, they may be somewhat insulated from the forces pushing down fertility in the rest of the world.

 

But it is harder to explain why secular Jewish Israelis also have more children than the norm. Most work; paid leave for Israeli parents is not especially generous. Nor is child care cheaper than in other rich places. Some argue that Jewish Israelis make more babies because they foresee a rosier future: Israel ranks among the world’s top ten countries in happiness.

 

Another reason may be that the state encourages baby-making by, for instance, bankrolling fertility treatment. It subsidises in-vitro fertilisation to the tune of $150m a year. Tiny Israel has about the same number of frozen embryos as America. This may have only a slight effect on Israel’s birth rate, but it signals that the government wants its citizens to procreate.

 

One more explanation may be that Israeli grandparents tend to help out more than their peers in many other rich countries. Since Israel is small and densely populated, grandma is never far away. In one survey 83% of secular Jewish mothers aged 25-39 said they were supported by their child’s grandparents, whereas only 30% of German mothers said the same. In Israel the traditional family structure is still strong. In France and Britain more than half of babies are born out of wedlock. In Israel it is under 10%.

 

The convergence of birth rates between Israeli Jews and Arabs suggests demography will be far less important than either Israeli doom-mongers feared or Palestinian nationalists once hoped. Since neither community is likely to swamp the other with babies, both will still have to work out how to live together peacefully in their disputed slice of the Middle East.

This article appeared in the Middle East & Africa section of the print edition under the headline “Go forth and multiply”



 

That last paragraph is the most important one.

One more explanation may be that Israeli grandparents tend to help out more than their peers in many other rich countries. Since Israel is small and densely populated, grandma is never far away. In one survey 83% of secular Jewish mothers aged 25-39 said they were supported by their child’s grandparents, whereas only 30% of German mothers said the same. In Israel the traditional family structure is still strong. In France and Britain more than half of babies are born out of wedlock. In Israel it is under 10%.

Arabs and anti-Zionists pretend that Judaism is a mere religion. But it is so much more than that.

 

Jews are beyond a people, beyond a tribe.

 

We are family.

 

This is the fundamental issue that modern antisemites simply cannot grasp. It is that sense of family, of mutual responsibility, of a shared past and a shared destiny, that is the secret of Israel’s success and strength.

 

The entire reason for legendary Israeli rudeness and loudness is because one lets their guard down around family. Israelis will ask each other personal questions because that’s how one treats family.  Walking on eggshells to make sure people won’t be offended or react unpredictably is for strangers, not for relatives.

 

“Jewish geography” – the invariable start of a conversation between Jews from different places to find out who they know in common – is a game that only works for cousins.

 

Normal people, even the most altruistic, care more about their families than about others. It is natural. That is why Israel cares so much about the survival and future of the Jewish people.

 

The modern antisemites see this family dynamic and twist it into “Jewish supremacy.” That is a perversion.  It is nothing of the sort. It is the way that strong, functional families act. And it is a good indicator of how strong societies remain strong.

 

Strong families make better neighbors with others than disconnected individuals can, but they also circle the wagons together against threats. And this last sentence just explained Israel’s policy towards its Arab citizens and neighbors better than hundreds of academic papers and articles can.

 

Bethany Mandel had a great thread last week about the bonds between Jews. A slightly shortened version:

 

I was at the county fair today with all the kids and ran out of cash and don’t carry a bank card.   My kids were distraught and wanted more ride tickets. So I said “lemme go ask that Jewish guy if I can Venmo him for cash.” My kids were like WHAT you can’t just go up to a stranger and ask to bum cash. And I was like guys, he’s not just some guy, he’s a Jew. Watch me.    He went to the ATM, got us cash, I Venmo’d him in exchange, and they learned a valuable lesson about being Jews.

 

My kids don’t remember it, but I did this another time. I was on a full flight alone with three kids and had to use the bathroom. My older two were too young to hold the baby. So I got up, looked around, saw a Jewish guy four rows back in the middle seat, and handed him the baby. I came back and he was like oh, wait, I follow you on Twitter.  And everyone around him was like wait you didn’t know him…? I was like no. They asked why I trusted him.  I was like first off – where is he gonna go? Second, he’s a Jew. So he can hold my baby. They were 🤯🤯🤯.

 

Proud Jews get it. We viscerally understand how we are all family. We experience how visiting Israel, even for the first time, feels like returning home, both religious Jerusalem and secular Tel Aviv.

 

We are family. If you don’t get that, you don’t understand Jews and you don’t understand Israel.

Described as “one of the most difficult economic environments in recent years,” this dramatic swell in inflation and the corresponding rise in prices is but the latest episode in Israel’s 74-year economic history.

 

Marked by incredible lows and dizzying highs, the country’s economic history is the story of how one small state went from relying on food rationing and price controls to becoming an advanced economy and one of the world’s leading technology hubs.

 

In this piece, we will focus on this fascinating story by taking a look at the three eras that define the history of Israel’s economy: 1948-1973, 1973-1985, and 1985-present.

1948-1973: From Austerity to Growth

The early years were difficult ones economically, as Israel was slowly rebounding from the 1948-1949 War of Independence — which claimed the lives of 1% of the nascent state’s population — while also being inundated with hundreds of thousands of immigrants from Europe, the Middle East, and North Africa.

 

In order to ensure that all of Israel’s citizens were receiving their essential needs while also seeking to keep the cost of living low, the Israeli government instituted a number of austerity policies, including food rationing and price controls.

 

During this period, which was marked by high unemployment and rising inflation, each Israeli adult was given food tickets to use at their local grocery store in order to obtain their daily allowance of 1,600 calories.

 

As the economy grew and there was less need for strict austerity policies, regulations began to loosen until the rationing regime was ultimately ended in 1959.

 

Between 1950 and 1965, the Israeli economy grew by 11% annually as the Jewish state began to see an influx of capital from American loans, a rise in the sale of Israel bonds to overseas Jewish communities, transfers to public institutions, and the payment of Holocaust reparations by the German government.

 

Aside from this influx of capital, one of the major engines of this economic growth was the Israeli government’s 1952 new economic policy, which gradually ended price controls, drastically devalued the Israeli currency, encouraged exports, and embraced fiscal restraint.

 

In addition, Israel’s protectionist policies allowed for the development of domestic industries, particularly textiles, which were then subsidized in order to expedite the exportation of these products outside of Israel.

 

In the 1960s, Israel began a process of economic liberalization that saw quantitative restrictions on imports removed in exchange for tariffs and that replaced protectionism with realistic exchange rates. This period also saw the signing of beneficial trade agreements between Israel and the European Economic Community (the precursor to the European Union).

 

Following Israel’s victory during the 1967 Six Day War, the Israeli economy saw a boom due to investor confidence in the victorious Jewish state and increased investment in the defense industry.

1973-1985: ‘The Lost Decade’

Following the 1973 Yom Kippur War, the Israeli economy entered a period of malaise and stagnation that has become colloquially known as “the lost decade.” This period is defined by almost zero economic growth, spiraling inflation as well as rising debt and deficit levels.

 

This “lost decade” has its roots in the Yom Kippur War, when most of the Israeli workforce was called up for reserve duty for an extended period of time (up to six months). This inevitably led to a downturn in economic activity. In order to offset the business losses from the war, the government artificially propped up salaries, which led to an increase in debt and a rise in taxation.

 

In addition, increased defense spending contributed to the ballooning government deficit while uncertainty regarding Israel’s future led to a steep drop-off in foreign investment.

During this time period, both private businesses and the quasi-governmental sector suffered from mismanagement and inefficiency and were forced to become heavily dependent on the government, which led to even further expenditures.

 

Israel’s inflationary spiral, which began in the 1970s and continued into the 1980s, became exacerbated in 1983 by the Israel bank stock crisis, when artificially inflated bank stocks dropped precipitously and the government was forced to buy these stocks in order to prevent the collapse of the entire Israeli banking system.

 

This drove up inflation and Israel actually reached a stage of hyperinflation, with the 1984 rate hitting an all-time high of 445%.

 

It was at this point that the Israeli government decided to take action in order to rescue the economy from impending catastrophe.

1985-1990s: Stabilization Plan Successfully Implemented

In 1985, the Israeli government adopted the stabilization plan, which saw a reduction in government spending, the abolition of subsidies, wage freezing, temporary price controls, and the devaluation of the Shekel (and ultimately replacing it with the New Israeli Shekel in 1986).

 

In addition, the US government agreed to perform a one-time conversion of defense loans into grants, easing the pressure on the Israeli financial system.

 

The stabilization plan was incredibly successful, reducing inflation over one year from over 400% to a manageable level of 20%.

 

As a result of the reduction in government spending, both the private and semi-governmental sectors, which had previously relied on government subsidies, had to become more efficient and productive. A reduction in the role of the unions also during this period meant that it was easier to fire unproductive workers and increase workplace efficiency.

 

The change to the Israeli economic landscape that occurred during the late 1980s and early 1990s laid the foundation for Israel becoming the advanced economy and tech hub that we know today.

1990s-2000s: Rise of the Startup Nation

In the 1990s and 2000s, Israel’s economy was able to take off due to a number of factors, including government initiatives, the changing face of international politics, and the rise of the internet.

 

In the 1990s, the Israeli government privatized major industries and opened up its markets to international competition by further reducing tariff protection, encouraging exports, and liberalizing currency markets. During this period, Israel also began to open up to the Asian markets.

 

As well, the separate peace treaties that Israel signed with its regional enemies Egypt and Jordan allowed the Israeli government to considerably reduce its defense spending.

 

Additionally, the Israeli government founded the Yozma program in the early 1990s which helped facilitate investments in developing Israeli technologies.

 

With the collapse of the Soviet Union, Israel saw the arrival of almost a million new Russian-speaking immigrants, many of whom were engineers, academics, or scientists. This influx of human capital gave a much-needed boost to Israel’s growing technological sector.

 

Perhaps the most important factor that contributed to the evolution of Israel’s economy was the popularization of the internet in the 1990s. With the rise of such digital technology, young Israeli entrepreneurs were able to break into a global market with few government barriers and relatively low overhead costs.

 

The combination of all these factors helped contribute to the advancement of the Israeli economy and the creation of the “startup nation.”

Even though Israel has evolved into an advanced economy, it is still susceptible to economic downturns and recessions.

 

Between 2000 and 2003, Israel experienced the worst recession in its history when it suffered from the global hi-tech crash of 2000 coupled with the severe economic repercussions of the Second Intifada.

 

The policies adopted by the government in 2003, including more privatization, encouragement of participation in the labor market, and decreasing welfare payments, helped lead to an almost five-year boom in the Israeli economy until the great global recession of 2008.

 

During that recession, Israel did not fare as badly as other countries due to its strong banking system, its high level of foreign reserves, its high level of employment, and budgetary surpluses in the years prior to the financial meltdown.

2020-2022: Coping With COVID

During the 2020 COVID crisis, Israel suffered along with other countries, but fared better than most. While Israel’s GDP dropped 2.2% in 2020, this was a far cry from the average of 4.7% among OECD countries. Similarly, Israel bounced back faster than other countries, with 8.2% growth in 2021 and a forecasted 5.5% in 2022.

 

Even though the Israeli economy today is relatively resilient, it is still a point of concern for many Israelis, with 44% of Israelis responding to a recent survey that the main factor influencing their vote in the upcoming elections is the economy and the rise in costs.

According to a recent report in Globes, the state of the Israeli economy is relatively good when compared with other countries undergoing rising levels of inflation. This is a far cry from the early days of Israel’s existence, when the standard of living was only 30% of the United States, or when the Jewish state suffered from hyperinflation in the early 1980s.

 

The fact that the Israeli economy has gone from food rationing and price controls to the second-largest market for technology startups in the span of 74 years is nothing short of miraculous.

Remembering the hard times predating the startup nation

Exhibit at a Tel Aviv museum presents the period of rationing and restrictions of Israel’s first decade through rare photos, films, texts, documents.

This year’s celebrations of the State of Israel’s 70th anniversary have focused justifiably on the startup nation’s great successes. Little has been written about the hardscrabble early years, the post-War of Independence austerity regime of the 1950s, when the newly established nation had no credit line and was on the verge of bankruptcy.

 

A new exhibition, “The Zionist Side of the Coin,” at the Discount Group’s HerzLilienblum Private Museum in Tel Aviv, examines the economic challenges faced from 1949 to 1959, when newborn Israel enforced a tzena (Hebrew for “austerity”).

 

Those years of rationing and other economic measures are presented through rare photographs and films, texts and documents.

 

Sponsored by the Discount Bank Group, the museum covers the Israeli banking sector and Tel Aviv nostalgia, and is fittingly located adjacent to the street where black-market money-changers once plied their trade.

What were the circumstances that gave rise to such measures? In a paper published by The Southern California Interdisciplinary Law Journal entitled, “Unexceptional for Once: Austerity and Food Rationing in Israel, 1939–1959,” researcher Guy Seidman describes the economic situation of the young state of Israel as “under exceptional pressure and near financial collapse.”

 

“As the grueling War of Independence came to its slow end by July 1949, with separate armistice agreements signed with most Arab nations, the country’s recovery was further slowed by an enormous influx of immigrants. It was widely understood that the government would have to declare an economic emergency situation in the country.”

 

“Given the time pressures and the familiarity with the British austerity scheme enforced before Israel’s establishment, the government chose to continue the use of the mandatory emergency legislation of 1939.”

 

Under the British Mandate, Seidman points out, “the mandatory legal regulatory scheme put in place in Palestine was part of the food control scheme also put into effect throughout the entire British empire.”

 

In early 1949, the government established a Ministry of Rationing and Supply, in charge of rationing food, clothing and all essential provisions, and going after black marketeers.

Life under austerity was not easy. The Ministry of Rationing and Supply created a “basket” of basic products, such as sugar, oil, bread and margarine, which could be purchased only in authorized stores.

 

Coupon books allocated the type and amount of food and clothes to be consumed. People stood in line for hours to obtain goods — if they were available.

 

According to local historian David Sela, curator of the wonderful Nostalgia Israel website, the austerity regime “turned every neighborhood grocery store into a government agency because every citizen had to register at the store, after which every family received a ration coupon book.”

 

People tried to stay on the grocer’s good side; one argument could mean getting a half-loaf of bread instead of a whole one.

 

In a television interview given during the 2011 butter shortage, Sela told stories about the truly hard times.

 

“The allocation per person was 1,600 calories per day only. There was a strict directive. They brought in an international expert whose guidelines were: decide how the amount a person could consume each day without starving to death. And the allocation was a half loaf of bread per person, per day, 60 grams of corn, of rice, of legumes, but only 0.75 grams of meat per month.”

 

An entire industry of ersatz products was developed: chicory tablets replaced coffee, soup cubes instead of chicken soup, powdered eggs and milk instead of the real thing. According to Sela, “There wasn’t any fruit so they manufactured a compote that was reminiscent of the taste of fruit. A factory was set up precisely for this purpose.”

 

The ministry also determined import volume, the supply of raw materials and goods to trade and industry, and managed agricultural and industrial production and export. The goal was to strengthen local production and export, reduce and perhaps even prevent the state’s dependence on foreign imports, and reduce its dependence on foreign currency.

This led the ministry to expand the basket of basic products to include utilitarian furniture, clothing and footwear – all of which could be purchased if one had enough coupons.

 

To combat profiteering, the Ministry of Rationing and Supply implemented strict enforcement measures, a system of inspectors and special courts, a propaganda campaign, and assistance from the Israeli Security Agency (Shin Bet) to search vehicles and confiscate illegally procured goods.

 

Sela: “A black market developed in which you could buy things under the table. Whoever had a cousin or a relative living on a kibbutz was set for life. ‘Children of the cream’ — those were the kibbutzniks. The expression came into being because if you were a kibbutznik then you had access to cream.”

Throughout the austerity period, unemployment was high and inflation grew. On the positive, side, austerity enabled the state to preserve an adequate standard of living while at the same time integrate and resettle more than 700,000 Jewish refugees from Europe and the Arab world.

 

Seidman: “Gradually, as the economic situation improved and the emergency scheme’s failings began to outweigh its benefits, public pressure brought about the dissolution of the austerity regime. The Rationing and [Supply] Ministry was disbanded in late 1950, and the responsibility for rationing was transferred to other government ministries. From 1952 on [when the reparations agreement with Germany was signed], the austerity regime was gradually rolled back. By 1959 the Israeli government decided to formally end the austerity regime entirely.”

The HerzLilienblum Museum exhibit stresses the amazing nation-building efforts conducted during those years: loans were secured for infrastructure development (electric and other power stations, roadwork, communications systems, etc.), and the foundations of social legislation were laid (laws governing national insurance, work hours, maternity leave and more).

 

Another part of the exhibit is devoted to the creation of Israel’s currency. In February 1948, the British cut off the Israeli pound from the pound sterling market – a move that could have created monetary uncertainty. In a brave move — given that Israel’s independence had not yet been declared — the monetary infrastructure for the future state was created, and the Anglo-Palestine Bank (later renamed Bank Leumi) issued the new Israeli pound (also called “lira”).

 

There are also examples of the locally manufactured goods produced under the aegis of the Ministry of Rationing and Supply: school notebooks, “Flit” mosquito sprayers, washboards, and the ubiquitous Wonder Pot, which served as an all-purpose stovetop oven for all new immigrants.

 

Their nostalgic charm aside, the poverty of these items reinforces the exhibit’s message about the social and economic phenomenon that, only 70 years on, is a thriving, modern state of Israel.
