Wars And Economic Failure Have Been Marching Us Towards One World Government

The US and Israel are on parallel paths.  Each is now a base of operations for the Illuminati, and each will be discarded as a nation-state entity once their usefulness to the cause of the New World Disorder has been served, or at least that is the plan.  Our nations have become a den of vipers.  The corruption lies not with the common folk, but with their bought-and-paid-for or compromised leadership, while the common folk are kept in the dark by a corrupt media that is owned and controlled exclusively by the Illuminati.

Both the US and Israel have created the best enemies that money can buy, because the objective is to cause as much bloodshed and destruction as possible, for as long as possible, in order to provide fun and profits for the benefit of their respective military-industrial complexes.  After all, you need a scapegoat on which to blame the destruction and loss of life that is necessary to rake in trillions of dollars in war profits, to implement genocides and population control agendas, to exert your political will, to rob other nations of their resources and to satisfy the limitless bloodlust of the satanic, megalomaniacal, trillionaire sociopaths who run the shadow governments in both the US and Israel. 

The Illuminati, however, have conspired to achieve their objectives while simultaneously preventing the US and Israel from becoming too powerful, prosperous and independent to want to surrender their sovereignty in favor of world government.  After all, why would the people of any free and prosperous nation with superior military and economic prowess on a global basis ever succumb to a one-world, Marxist-fascistic, Orwellian police state of feudality?  That is why our respective militaries have been forced to suffer nothing but losses, stalemates and incomplete victories since the end of WWII.  This process of implementing wars for profit without achieving too much military power and economic independence has been achieved by hamstringing US and Israeli military operations with incomplete or scaled-back objectives, moronic rules of engagement, insufficient manpower and equipment and implementation of defective military strategies which ensure that operations will devolve into a complete cluster-f--k, thus always snatching defeat from the jaws of victory.

  Why did Roosevelt provoke the Japanese, and allow them to destroy our battleships in Pearl Harbor, while the carriers were conveniently on maneuvers off shore?  Was is because he was worried the Japanese might find out we had broken their code, or was it to hamstring our navy to make sure the war would drag on in the Pacific for years to ensure that the Illuminist military-industrial complex made mega-profits and took us out of the Depression which the Illuminists themselves had caused?  Couldn't we have prevented the attack, saved several thousand lives and used the old ships until the new ones were built, and still have beaten the snots out of the Japanese?  Did Admiral Kimmel have to be disgraced?  Why did we ship defective weapons to nationalist forces in China, thus allowing the communist forces to take over after WWII?  Why was General Patton assassinated by our own military when he sought to push the soviets back to their own borders, and why did we then set communist Russia up with a new kingdom in the Yalta sellout of Eastern Europe? Why did we abandon the Hungarian freedom fighters at the last second in 1956 and allow the communists in Soviet Russia to slaughter them?  Why did we not bomb the Chinese troops in North Korea for a sure victory as desired by General MacArthur, who was later disgraced by the evil Illuminist puppet, Harry Truman, instead settling for a division of Korea into North and South sectors by a demilitarized zone which we still occupy to this day?  Why did we cut short the TET Offensive in Vietnam, which would have brought us to a complete victory according to the leading North Vietnamese General who admitted he and his troops would have been done for, thus settling for a later loss instead after a long, bloody and expensive war?  Why did we stop short of taking Baghdad in the First Gulf War?  Was it because we were winning too speedily with too few casualties for the Illuminists to make their usual gargantuan war profits? Was there not enough bloodshed to quench their thirst the Illuminati's thirst for blood?   Why did we use depleted uranium in both Gulf Wars so as to sicken and kill our own troops?  Was it to make the medical and pharmaceutical industries flush with cash and to cut pensions short, thus saving hundreds of billions of dollars?  Was it to reduce the number of patriotic veterans who might violently object to the implementation of world government?  Why did it take more time to beat a bunch of rag-head terrorists in Iraq and Afghanistan numbering in the mere tens of thousands than it took to win WWII?  Why did we use a small fraction of the number of troops recommended by our senior military commanders for the so-called War on Terror?  Why were our troops continually ill-equipped and running excessively long tours of duty?  Was it because we wanted to extend the war and wear out our military in order to reduce the number of US troops, and the potential for objection to world government by our patriotic veterans, by replacing them with mercenary killers who could care less?  Why did we cause a civil war on top of the war to remove Saddam, due to the supposed errors in judgment that were made in our strategies for conquest?  Was it to extend the war while channeling hundreds of billions to Illuminist contractors and mercenaries via no-bid contracts?  Why did Clinton give our nuclear secrets to the Chinese?  Are you beginning to get the picture?

In 1947 to 1948, Israel was sold out by Britain as it gave up possession of Palestine, which left them with indefensible borders and a country less than ten miles wide in some sections, thereby ensuring continual conflict with the Arabs.  This vicious redrawing of borders to foment conflict is something the British Black Nobility are experts at after centuries of practice.  They thought that the Arabs would destroy Israel which was becoming a thorn in their side because they wanted a piece of the Middle East oil action, and Israel was putting a crimp in their plans.  But then Israel won miraculously in the face of an overwhelming attack by several Arab nations simultaneously, and Truman saw his chance to use Israel to gain a foothold in the Middle East, a base of operations for Illuminists of the US faction.  Incidentally, Britain lost virtually its entire empire after screwing Israel, a nice bit of poetic justice and divine retribution for their treachery.  But Israel did not press its advantage, winning by simply surviving, in its first war with the surrounding Arab states.  Many of the Palestinians left the Palestinian territories bordering on Israel during this conflict, thinking that Israel would be easily defeated and that they would get to take over all the Israeli lands, as well as get their own back.  Their desire to get this abandoned land back is the basis for the so-called "right of return."  Frankly, in attacking Israel, the Arabs forfeited their rights to their own lands by failing to respect Israel's borders, as did the Palestinians by cooperating in the war to destroy Israel.  The surrounding Arab states could and should have taken all the displaced Palestinians in, but instead left a good portion of them along Israel's new occupied lands as a hemorrhoid for Israel to deal with, allowing their Arab brethren to live in poverty and squalor rather than take them in after telling them to leave and then losing the war.  They use the Palestinian territories as a base from which they can terrorize Israel and eventually destroy them.  They have no intention of giving Israel peace, but instead want to take them apart piece by piece via the corrupt Oslo process and the so-called Roadmap to Peace, which should be termed the Roadmap to Israel's Destruction.

In its 1967 Six Day War, which was a preemptive strike by Israel in an act of self-preservation against Arab states massing troops along its miniscule borders, Israel could have been more aggressive, but they pulled back and started negotiating with the Arabs after less than a week of fighting, when they could have extended their borders and made them more defensible.  Why?  Was it because the US insisted to protect its US oil interests with the Arabs?  Was it because, in any case, the US Illuminists did not want Israel to become too powerful and extend their borders too far, because they wanted to destroy Israel when they had finished using it as a base of operations for Middle East conquest?  Why did the US withhold aid from Israel in the 1973 Yom Kippur War until it was almost too late, thereby almost destroying Israel in the process?  Was it because Kissinger, Nixon's Secretary of State, wanted to bloody Israel's nose to show them who was boss, and that they had better do as they were told, or else?  Why, after Israel blew through Lebanon in the First Lebanon War and surrounded Arafat and his PLO, did they allow him to escape to Libya?  Why did they tolerate the PLO for so many years when they could have easily eliminated them?   Why did they allow Hamas to be eligible for elective office when they are sworn to the destruction of Israel?  In the second Lebanon War, why did they use a tiny fraction of the forces used in the First Lebanon War against an enemy that was far more entrenched and dug in than in the first war?  Was it because they were not supposed to win at the insistence of the US?  Were they told to keep Hezbollah in place to keep fomenting terror and trouble, thus generating profits for the US and Israeli military-industrial complexes?  Why does the US fund Saudi Arabia which then funds Hamas' operations?  Is it not convenient for oil companies to have an excuse to gouge consumers every time the Middle East ignites in conflict?  Is not the whole peace process just a way to dismantle Israel after US and Israeli Illuminists are finished with it?  You better believe it!!!  Are you starting to get the picture again? 

The fact that the US is the top-ranked military power in the world, and that the Israeli military is the top-ranked military in the Middle East, is no coincidence.  Israel, of course, derives much of its strength from money and aid provided by the US, and it is, in essence, a satellite base for the Illuminist operation to create a region of oil hegemony in the Middle East where oil is the cheapest, and therefore the most profitable, to extract.  Additionally, the control of this crucial resource provides great political clout and the opportunity for economic extortion in the great play for power. Russia is currently doing something similar with natural gas.  Once the Illuminati have control of the world's most prolific and profitable oil supply, they can use it to force other nations, as well as their own people, to accept one-world government by turning off the taps, by driving the price up to extortionate levels or by driving the price down to levels that are economically unsustainable for competing nations who would prefer to pass on a one-world system.

In addition to the manufactured wars for profit and the attempt to put a stranglehold on critical commodities and other resources, is the Illuminist economic destruction agenda which is being played out right before your eyes in the US and around the world.  This destruction was brought about by the intentional creation of a conspiratorial daisy chain of fraud throughout the mortgage and consumer loan industries via derivatives traded in the unregulated OTC derivatives market, accompanied by intentional regulatory failures by the Fed and the elitist bootlickers in our government along with legislative machinations that opened the Pandora's Box previously closed and locked by Glass-Steagall, AND NOT BY UNINTENTIONAL MISCALCULATIONS OR ERRORS IN JUDGMENT --- THEY KNEW EXACTLY WHAT THEY WERE DOING!!!

The products spawned by that daisy chain of fraud were spread throughout the world like a deadly poison, only to be cut off unexpectedly and serendipitously by Meredith Whitney of Oppenheimer when she exposed Citigroup's subprime derivatives as being toxic waste weapons of mass financial destruction.  In addition, here in the US, the Illuminati have used free trade, globalization, off-shoring and outsourcing, along with both legal and illegal immigration, to bust our unions, and to destroy our domestic manufacturing sector by shipping it overseas, along with the productive, good-paying jobs produced by that sector.  In place of those jobs in the manufacturing sector, we now peddle toxic waste derivatives, flip hamburgers and greet people entering department stores.  These are the new "wonderful" jobs driving our new economy.  The idea here was to knock the snots out of everyone around the globe, and especially in the US, so they will beg for a one-world solution, which will of course be offered in true Hegelian Dialectic fashion.

Summary: Enemies one of the benefits of war, do they think we will beg for one world government? Wars and the daisy chain of fraud, free trade, globalization, off shoring, outsourcing, and financial turned into weapons and toxic wast, intentional regulatory failures, they were never errors but plans all along.

Israel planned Gaza attack nearly one year ago, says academic

By Habib Toumi, Bahrain Bureau Chief
Published: January 27, 2009, 15:48

Manama: Israel launched its attacks on Gaza to foil a peaceful offensive by Hamas, said American academic Norman Finkelstein.
Finkelstein dismissed claims that Hamas was responsible for the onslaught, saying that there was no evidence that supported the "misconceptions".
"There is no evidence in my opinion to support this claim. The records show very clearly that, as Israeli newspapers themselves reported, the attack on Gaza had been planned as early as March 2007," said Finkelstein, ahead of two lectures he is delivering in Manama on "the real motives behind Israel's massacre in Gaza" and on the power of the Israeli lobby in the US.
Finkelstein, the son of a Holocaust survivor, has often accused Israel of using the genocidal Nazi campaign against Jews to justify its actions against Palestinians.

He said that Israel had two reasons to launch the attacks that lasted 22 days and resulted in the death of more than 1,300 Palestinians and the destruction of Gaza's infrastructure.
"Number one, because of the defeat they suffered in 2006 in the war with Hezbollah. After that they wanted to demonstrate to the Arabs that Israel was still a fighting force and one that could still inspire terror in the Arab world," he said.
His argument echoes an analysis presented by Mark Heller, a senior researcher at the Institute for National Security Studies at Tel Aviv University, who has said that the attacks "reflected the deep feeling among average Israelis that the country had to regain its deterrent capacity" and that "this operation is an attempt to re-establish the perception that if you provoke or attack you are going to pay a disproportionate price."
The second motive for the Israeli attacks, said Finkelstein, is that "Hamas was becoming too moderate, making statements that it was willing to settle conflict in accordance with the Arab League Peace plan of 2002."
He said that the trend "was deemed a disaster for the Israelis" since a peace deal would have deprived Israel of an excuse to seize control of Palestine and Israel would have to revert to the 1967 borders.
In an interview last March with theJournal of Palestine Studies, Khalid Mishal, the head of Hamas's Political Bureau, said that "there is an opportunity to deal with this conflict in a manner different from how Israel and, behind it, the US is dealing with it today."
"There is an opportunity to achieve a Palestinian national consensus on a political program based on the 1967 borders, and this is an exceptional circumstance, in which most Palestinian forces, including Hamas, accept a state on the 1967 borders," Mishal was quoted as saying.

All According To Plan…

Brown sees 'new world order' after crisis

LONDON (AFP) — Prime Minister Gordon Brown said Monday the financial crisis must not be an excuse to retreat into protectionism and instead be viewed as the "difficult birth-pangs of a new global order".

In a speech, he will urge countries to avoid "muddling through as pessimists" and "make the necessary adjustment to a better future and setting the new rules for this new global order", according to his office.

Official data confirmed Friday that Britain is in recession. Days earlier, the government unveiled a new package of measures to help the flow of credit in the economy, but Brown has argued global action is needed for a quick recovery.

He will warn Monday that the crisis has given the world a choice: "We could allow this crisis to start a retreat from globalisation.

"As some want, we could close our markets -- for capital, financial services, trade and for labour -- and therefore reduce the risks of globalisation.

"But that would reduce global growth, deny us the benefits of global trade and confine millions to global poverty.

"Or we could view the threats and challenges we face today as the difficult birth-pangs of a new global order -- and our task now as nothing less than making the transition through a new internationalism to the benefits of an expanding global society."

Britain is hosting a summit of the Group of 20 (G20) advanced and developing nations in London on April 2, and Brown has held preparatory talks with the French and German leaders, as well as new US President Barack Obama.

He will meet with Chinese Prime Minister Wen Jiabao, South Korean Prime Minister Han Seung-Soo and Japanese premier Taro Aso, as well as World Bank chief Robert Zoellick at the World Economic Forum (WEF) in Davos this week.

Brown's Downing Street office said he would discuss with them "how we can best work internationally on financial reform, economic expansion and the creation of jobs in new sectors such as the environment."

The Reality Behind Obama

THE VACUOUS WORDS ...

... OF A VACUOUS PRESIDENT

David Icke Newsletter, January 25th 2009

Yes, I know it's not popular and I know it's swimming against the tide. But it has the benefit of being true.

It was supposed to be the most inspirational acceptance speech in American presidential history. It turned out to be a B-movie script from a B-movie president…

… An American television show compared clips of his inauguration speech with that of George Bush and they were virtually identical. Of course they were. The spoken and the speakers are the creations of the same source.

It was a speech that said nothing specific, the Obama style, but in fact said everything if you read between the lines and see through the fraudulent verbosity. This is a man that after saying nothing about the mass-slaughter in Gaza for a month had the nerve and mendacity to deliver these words:

'We will not apologize for our way of life, nor will we waver in its defence, and for those who seek to advance their aims by inducing terror and slaughtering innocents, we say to you now that our spirit is stronger and cannot be broken; you cannot outlast us, and we will defeat you.'

Unless you are Israel.

Hundreds of children killed by American weapons funded by American dollars and fired by Israeli troops are 'defending Israel's right to exist'. Retaliating with rockets that can't make a hole in a road is 'terrorism that will be defeated'.

No mention, of course, that his Chief of Staff, the Zionist extremist, Rahm Emanuel, is the son of a terrorist who helped to bomb and murder Israel into existence in `1948.

Obama has been sold by the purveyors of illusion as a genuine man of dignity and principle. But he is, as we shall see when the mist clears from a billion eyes and more, a fake and a fraud.

The man whose political career has been founded and funded by some of the biggest crooks and conmen in America told his adoring hordes of programmed fanatics across the world:

'To those who cling to power through corruption and deceit and the silencing of dissent, know that you are on the wrong side of history; but that we will extend a hand if you are willing to unclench your fist.'

This from a man who has used corruption and deceit, the corrupt and deceitful, to lie and manipulate him to the White House to lead what will become the most corrupt and deceitful regime in American history.

Over the top? Just wait and see...

… Don't let anyone be fooled by the promise of closing of Guantanamo Bay or executive orders about 'open government'. Guantanamo has long become an embarrassment in search of an exit plan and 'open government' from a guy who has been a front man and stalwart of the most closed and corrupt political regime in America - Chicago??

Of course we'll see the cosmetic diversions that are the eternal tools of the mind magicians, but watch the Orwellian strategies hidden in the cliché rhetoric of 'change', 'hope' and 'common purpose' or the 'common good'.

For the real Obama agenda people need only look at the appointments to his 'new' administration - a vast Who's Who of Illuminati insiders, gofers and placemen.

This week he announced that George Mitchell (Council on Foreign Relations, Bilderberg Group) would front his Middle East policy and the mini-Kissinger, Richard Holbrook (Council on Foreign Relations, Bilderberg Group, Trilateral Commission) would take care of Afghanistan and Pakistan. If media reports are correct, the rabid Zionist insider, Dennis Ross, will be given a major role in Obama's policy on Iran.

To resist the spells cast by the Obama mind-game we need to close our ears to his wind-bag words and open our eyes to the reality of a society manipulated and pressured still further to accept more centralised control; wars of conquest and chaos creation; the loss of American sovereignty to a 'global community'; the introduction of compulsory 'community service', a forerunner to the draft; and a 'citizens security force' - the policing of the people by the people.

All these and more are on the wish-list of those who control Mr. Myth Man.

As I have said in countless radio interviews in the last few months, we are watching the presidential version of Problem-Reaction-Solution. Bush was brought in to create the chaos, militarily and financially, and Obama is now being offered as the solution - the rapid expansion of the Big Brother state disguised as power to the people…

… Obama, or more accurately those that he answers to, want to impose massive changes on American and global society and Obama has been installed to sell their ambitions like the political used-car salesman that he is. Thus, he told his audience on Tuesday:

'Now, there are some who question the scale of our ambitions - who suggest that our system cannot tolerate too many big plans. Their memories are short. For they have forgotten what this country has already done; what free men and women can achieve when imagination is joined to common purpose, and necessity to courage.'

There we see another key phrase that will be repeated - common purpose. He used the word 'common' in that context several times and the idea is to harness the focus of the people behind a common goal (the Illuminati agenda for America) while portraying those who seek to expose the real common purpose as unpatriotic, even racist…

… Obama's words about American troops were also designed to sell the common purpose scam and the plan for compulsory 'community service' and a civilian security force to police every neighbourhood:

… The agenda I have been exposing for nearly two decades was littered through the speech. He promised to 'roll back the spectre of a warming planet', which means more taxation and global laws to solve a problem that doesn't actually exist in the form that the manipulators claim.

This includes, according to the White House website, an 'economy-wide cap-and-trade program to reduce greenhouse gas emissions by 80 percent by 2050'. The capping and trading of carbon emissions on that scale will be catastrophic to an already devastated economy and for what? To 'solve a problem' that carbon emissions are not causing. Watch also for an army of 'environmental' enforcers.

And then there was this:

' ... the lines of tribe shall soon dissolve; that as the world grows smaller, our common humanity shall reveal itself; and that America must play its role in ushering in a new era of peace.'

This is Orwell-speak for reducing American sovereignty and opening the way to a world government and army. Note again the use of the word 'common'. The words are the sugar, the meaning is the cyanide.

Henry Kissinger, one of the most active and influential Illuminati operatives of the last 40 years, signposted all that I have outlined here when he spoke this week about the Obama presidency. Well, he signposted the obvious for anyone who understands the game, but, of course, the mass of uninformed humanity would not appreciate the context.

The plan for the Orwellian global state has long been dubbed the New World Order and words to that effect. This week Kissinger called for a 'new international order' and the only alternative to that, he said, was 'chaos'.

The motto of the 33rd degree of the Scottish Rite of Freemasonry is Ordo Ab Chao or 'Order out of Chaos' - Problem-Reaction-Solution. The 'chaos' that Kissinger talks about has been coldly-created to justify the 'new order' and there will be more if necessary to impose their will on the world.

Kissinger confirmed the agenda that Obama has been installed to pedal and note again our old friend 'common'…

… Oh, we'd better have a world government, world army, world central bank and world currency then, Henry, eh?

Kissinger said that the role of China in the new world order was crucial and the 'Sino-American relationship needs to be taken to a new level'. Obama's prime controller, Zbigniew Brzezinski, the co-founder of the Illuminati Trilateral Commission, has a long-planned agenda to instigate conflict involving China and Russia, as I have detailed in other newsletters.

Finally, Kissinger got to the crux of the whole Obama 'phenomenon':

'The extraordinary impact of the President-elect on the imagination of humanity is an important element in shaping a new world order.'

Exactly. And that's what Obama is - a puppeteer's dummy who has been hyped to the stars by the Illuminati cabal to sell the final stages of their Orwellian tyranny.

How sad it has been to be in America this week to see how many have been sucked in to this head-trip, the spell that has been cast upon the collective mind. Not just in America, either. The same can be seen across the world. Obama had a mountain named after him in Antigua before he had even made his first decision as president and to so many he is nothing less than a global messiah...

… The saddest thing of all for me was to see all those faces among the record crowds that turned out in the Washington National Mall to see the coronation of their hero and, for many, almost a god.

There were the worn-out faces of black men and women who had lived through America's apartheid years and the battles of Martin Luther-King who had spoken so memorably in that same location about the evils of segregation.

This day, they believed, was the culmination of that struggle with a black man, actually half-black man, anointed to the presidency. In one way that was true in that he had secured enough votes from white people to be elected and that was something to note for sure.

But Barack Obama is no Martin Luther King. He's not even close.

King spoke from the heart with a passion born of the blatant injustice that he so powerfully challenged. Obama speaks from the autocue with the coldness and deliberateness of the practiced deceiver that he is…

Is there an Inauguration Surprise due in USA?

BROTHER JONATHAN GAZETTE
                             DAILY DIGEST       MONDAY JANUARY 19, 2009

OBAMA AND THE TROIKA  (Part Two)
This issue of the Digest is one of the most difficult things I have tried to write.  That's why it has been months since I have written a Daily Digest.  There have been a number of reasons.  First, since I was born in December, I am a Winter Person.  As I described earlier, a Winter Person has difficulty sleeping and maintaining normal circadian sleep/wake cycles in November, December and January -- so doing research during that time is difficult.  Secondly, the last three months, I have been researching the “Meltdown” of the American economy.  But it is not just the American economy, it is the whole world's economy.  It is much worse elsewhere compared to America.  To discover what is happening around the world, I have watched and timed the markets of the world, comparing market changes to the events occurring in the world.  It is not at all what you were told in the American news.
That is a 24 hours a  day activity. Both the RTS market in Russia, and the Hong Kong market in China do not keep New York daytime business hours.   So to watch them you must be awake and aware between one and six in the morning – which messes up my sleep cycle – and I have been doing that for months.  But if you were aware in the middle of the night for the last three months, you would notice that the “meltdown” is not an American phenomenon, but it actually has affected other countries much worse than America.  caused very serious damage to the economies of Russia and China.  Many times the Russian Micex (The Moscow Interbank Currency Exchange) roughly equivalent to the American Federal Reserve has frequently shut down completely for days and weeks at a time, as the Russian stock market dives to near zero, mostly caused by the continuous drop in the world price of oil.  What is causing  the continuous drop in oil prices?  It is actually economic warfare perpetrated by the American oil companies to put the Russian oil companies like Gasprom, Rosneft, and Naftogas out of business.  The Russians are pissed and angry at the Americans, and getting ready to go to war over the falling price of gas.  And the Russians still have nukes, so a gas war with Russia is not a pretty prospect.  I remember “Troika gas wars” here in California in the 1950's when the price of gas at the pump went from a normal of about 20  cents a gallon sometimes during “gas wars” down to 10 and 5 cents a gallon, in some cases even a penny per gallon.  I remember completely filling up my gas tank with Chevron gas for less than one dollar in 1960.  The result was that many other California gas companies like Texaco, Hudson, Shell were forced out of business, and many no longer even exist in California.  This same gas war tactic in no longer in California, it is now occurring all across Russia and even China.
Both countries have had in recent weeks, massive layoffs, worse than in America, and a loss of money, causing the “middle class” in both countries to want to get rid of their “ruling class” and this would cause disaffection and revolt.  It was stated by many economists several months ago, that if the cost of a barrel of oil dropped below 50 dollars, the effect would be to “eliminate” the middle class in Russia and China, and as a result even the middle class in America.  With the cost of a barrel now hanging around 35 dollars, the middle classes of the world are facing extinction.  Both governments in Russia and China are facing revolt and revolution, from their once rich “middle class” but who have have now lost their jobs, their houses, and their money so changing the government seems the only “reasonable” action for them – this is called “Regime Change in Russia and China.”  This has the leaders of Russia and China running scared from there own people.  And scared nervous leaders can lead to unpredictable results -- like World War. This is not reported in the American press, but is now a constant headline in Russia and China.
This is the real purpose of the economic “meltdown,” but none of this is ever reported in the American “Troika-controlled” news media – since the “meltdown” was purposely created by the Troika.  But in America this need for “Regime Change” means getting rid of Bush and putting Obama into power.  That is part of the Troika Plan – but as you will soon see is also means getting rid of Obama.  That is the part which I don't like.  I like Barack Obama, he is an “ideal” candidate for President.  But the Troika doesn't like him and and right after he is inaugurated in two days, the news media will turn and he will quickly be tossed out of office and forced to resign. This actually happened before in 1974, when the news media turned on the then most popular President, who had won by a massive landslide, and President Nixon was forced to resign from office.
Six months ago, Hillary Clinton was asked about her Presidential experience, since it appeared she had no experience in national politics and her answer was she had “34 years of national political experience.”  Amazingly, the News media never figured out what she meant.  They only complained that they could not get access to the Clinton Presidential Library to look at her experience with the Hillary Health plan, etc.  But what does the Clinton Library have to do with 34 years ago?  Nothing.  So the News media was completely clueless.  34 years before 2008 was 1974, not during the President Clinton years -- so not in the Library.
What experience was Hillary referring to?  In 1974, the new young attorney, Hillary was among several attorneys assigned to the Congressional Watergate committee investigating the Watergate Break-in.  At that time, I was unemployed so I watched the live TV coverage live every day, twice a day and gavel to gavel.  I also at that time was working with Mae Brussell on the Kennedy assassination research, so I spent most of every evening on the phone with Mae watching the replays of the hearings on the local PBS channel.  I told Mae from my morning notes what was about to happen in the hearings which was not mentioned in the news.
That's when I discovered there were actually two “Troika controlled” attorneys on the Watergate hearings legal staff.  One one Hillary and the other was a young Republican named Fred Thompson. It was Thomson who created the 1974 constitutional crisis by asking White house staffer Butterfield, “were there recording devices in the Oval Office?”  Butterfield's shocking/stunning answer was, “Yes.”  Thus began the yearlong quest to force Nixon through the Supreme Court to give up the recorded tapes to the Congress.  Which finally ended up causing Nixon to resign from office.  This was not politics as usual. It was a Troika trick or  hoax politics.   The fact that Fred Thompson actually ran for President in 2008, but later resorted to being a promoter or adviser for John  McCaine shows that even McCaine was and is Troika Controlled through his Troika “babysitter” Fred Thompson.  Most Americans only know Fred Thompson as an actor on TV in 2003, but not so.  And Troika “babysitters” are a common political tool.  Even General and President Dwight Eisenhower had a Troika “Babysitter” in the 1950's.  That babysitter's name was Richard Nixon.   I'll explain more about Troika babysitters later.
That Troika trick actually began four years earlier in November 1968, when President-elect Nixon was invited to stay for several weeks in the apartments of Governor Nelson Rockefeller in New York.  The news media tried to examine this strange event but was stonewalled and got no answer.  The deal or trick was simple.  Nixon would stay in power as President if he, (1) finally completely removed the US Dollar from the gold standard, (2) prolonged the war in Vietnam for another 10 years, until the Rockefeller controlled Chevron Company had completed its offshore oil survey in 1975, and (3) Nixon would fire his Vice-President Spiro Agnew and appoint Nelson Rockefeller as a replacement, using the new Rockefeller 25th Amendment to the Constitution, which Rockefeller had passed in 1967. (What? Private citizens are now passing Amendments to the US Constitution?  Youbetcha, if you are as rich as Rockefeller, and can “buyoff” the US Congress and 3/4th of the state legislatures. And all in several weeks time.  The 25 Amendment is a case in point.)
Apparently, Nixon agreed to Nelson Rockefeller's demands, but there carefully was no record of that deal.  But Nixon's actions in the next 8 years shows that he was trying to comply but without actually signing over the government of the United States to the Rockefeller family dynasty.  But Nixon partially chickened out and did not appoint Nelson Rockefeller as his Vice-President, instead he appointed a Troika Compromise, Gerald Ford, who had shown his true Troika colors during the Warren Commission investigation of the Kennedy Assassination.  Later it was Ford who pardoned Nixon, since Nixon had actually done nothing wrong or criminal other than get on Nelson's “bad and wrong List”, by not obeying Troika commands, so then Ford appointed Nelson Rockefeller as Vice-President, so Nelson could complete the cover-up of Troika involvement in the Kennedy assassination by convening a new Congressional commission to investigate assassinations.
I discussed all this during my daily phone calls with Mae Brussell in 1973, so for me, none of this is new, it is simply Troika Politics as usual. Using this knowledge, I recently predicted that what happened to Nixon in 1974, would also happen to Barack Obama in 2008.  But I missed my prediction, since Nelson Rockefeller the fourth, AKA Senator Jay Rockefeller W Va, is more devious than I thought, its a Rockefeller family trait since 1885.  But the Troika Plan remains in place.  If something had happened to Obama after the November 4th elections, then the elections would be voided and Republican John McCain would become president.  But that is Not the Troika Plan.  So the Troika Plan was simply put on hold until just after Obama's inauguration a day from now on Jan 20th.  Then the constitutional election laws would change and the Troika Plan, as with Nixon, could be used by Hillary to drive Obama from office, and Obama would appoint Hillary as his replacement.  Why would Barack do that?
Well, Barack and Hillary are Frienemies (Friendly enemies) they are both democrat Senators and they are often seen together in news media photos, it only seems natural. In public Barack and Hillary seem cordial friends but in private they probably hate each others guts, but that's the strange politics of Frienemies.  And that's how Troika Tricks are made to appear,  events that are easily explained in the Troika controlled News media as natural events. Such as the Vietnam war -- A complete Troika Trick to make trillions of offshore oil dollars for the Rockefeller Chevron company, and costing the US government billions of dollars and the lives of 50 thousand American boys.  That was the Troika Plan for the 1950's - 1960'.
It was knowing that fact, which caused President Johnson to decide not to run for President in 1968, and to cause Nixon to resign in 1974.  What can a mere President of the US do to fight a massive world-wide behemoth called the Troika, other than resign in fear?   Fear that if you don't go along with Troika orders then you may get a Kennedy Haircut, meaning your head blown off.  It's happened before.  It is about to happen again.   You will hear about it splashed all over the headlines in next weeks news.  Thus what I am about to do is show you, not past event stories reported in the press with links to that story, but references to the Troika story as shown by thousands or millions of web pages but still never reported by the main stream press.  The main stream “Troika” press considers it a non-story or a “lie” so it is never reported in American newspapers or on TV.   The main loser is you, who thinks you are informed, but in fact you have been lied to by the Troika. Without respect to chronological order or listed in any order of  importance, here are recent stories in the last several years which you never heard:
George Bush is a liar and is responsible for the costly and deadly war in Iraq.   Completely and provably False.   You were told that there were weapons of mass destruction in Iraq, but a search shows there were none.  Again False.  I heard on the John Bachelor show on WABC New York, in 2003 an Army Intelligence officer had observed hundreds of trucks driven into a ditch dug into the southern Iraqi desert to the west near Basra, the truck contents were unloaded, then covered in plastic and then the whole region was flooded to appear like a huge lake in the desert.  That's how tons of WMDs had just been hidden under a lake in Iraq near the Euphrates River in 2002.  The whole region was fenced off with signs saying “no trespassing”  And who put up the signs?  The American CIA – the Troika.  And that was according to the American Army Intelligence officer in an eyewitness report in  2003.  Were WMDs ever discovered Iraq?  Yes.  Last year it was reported on 350 thousand websites (do a search on “yellow cake Iraq”) and even in the press, AP and Reuters, that 500 tons of “yellow cake” was found in Iraq, and being sent to Canada for processing last summer in June 2008.  BUT -- What was  NOT reported is what the heck is “yellow cake?”
Well, yellow cake is refined uranium ore.  It is not processed or refined for nuclear uses, but yellow cake has been known since the 1930's as a pure yellow colored metal powder used to make  yellow glaze on ceramics, or yellow ocher color in oil paints.  Thus yellow cake also has non-nuclear artistic uses.  But not 500 tons of it, which the US was shipping to Canada for nuclear enrichment  and then to be sold to the US nuclear program, enough raw material to make hundreds of nuclear bombs.  But that was something which neither Iraq nor Iran could do, but the US/Canada could.   Thus simply by not explaining what yellow cake was, the news story of the non-discovery of tons of raw WMDs in Iraq made George Bush look like a liar.  And it was the story that “Bush lied and people died” that was the basis for the winning Obama campaign of 2008.  At no time did the American CIA/Troika news media announce the discovery of 500 tons of WMDs in Iraq.  If they had, maybe the presidential election of 2008 might have been very different.
Another related story is the news story of the Valerie Plame affair, and it was a Bush assistant who leaked the name of Plame.  That whole story is false and designed to make Bush look bad.  Plame was a low level clerk or agent in the CIA who was tasked to hire her husband, ambassador Wilson to investigate if Saddam Hussein was importing WMDs into Iraq.  The CIA Troika purpose was to cover up the fact that it was the CIA itself which was brokering the deal to sell yellow cake from Niger to Saddam, through Libya.  But Ambassador Wilson was not a nuclear scientist who didn't know Yellow Cake from Cheesecake. I heard a radio interview  with Wilson in 2003, and my assessment, Wilson was clueless, even about the role his wife played in getting his CIA contract. So, Wilson falsely reported the Iraqi rumors were false and Hussein was Not importing raw WMD material into Iraq.  The truth was actually Hussein WAS importing tons of yellow cake from Niger, but Wilson never reported that.  In fact it was discovered late, in 2004, that tons of yellow cake were found in Libya, with Saddam Hussein's address still on it.  But the Troika news media never put two and two together to show that Wilson and Plame were both lying to Congress and both should be put in Jail, not Bush's aid Scooter Libby.
Another story closely related to that was the fact that the Iraq war has continued on for 6 years. It was George Bush's war.  False.  The war, “as directed by the Pentagon”, was actually over in two weeks, at low cost and very few casualties.  So then what happened? The war had actually been taken over by the Troika for the last 6 years. Thus it was not a Bush War, it was a Rockefeller Troika war and it had nothing to do with oil. It had to do with world power and the collapse of the US economy which we are now only beginning to see.
On May 1, 2003.  Bush landed in a Navy S-3B Viking plane on the deck of the carrier USS Abraham Lincoln. And still wearing a military flight suit Bush announced “mission accomplished” saying the war was over.  Several days ago, Jan 17 2009, Bush, in his last press conference, said that “photo-op” event  was one of his biggest mistakes in his 8 year administration.  Wrong.  The war actually WAS over then, on May 1, 2003 after a two week invasion in April 2003.  Bush's big mistake was announcing that ambassador Paul Bremer would be the new “ruler” in Iraq.  What nobody noticed was the Paul Bremer was not just an ambassador, he was 100 percent Troika, and Bush had just put him (Troika) in charge of the Iraq war.  That would be like putting Richard Nixon in charge of ending the war in Vietnam, which then went on for another 8 years and cost 50 thousand American lives and many more Vietnamese. In 2003, nobody in Washington had heard of Paul Bremer.  How could that be?  And what's that got to do with Iraqi 40 years later?  Lets see.
A trip back in time shows that about the same time as Nixon. as president-elect, went to stay in Nelson Rockefeller's apartments in New York, Nelson's close and top legal advisor was Henry Kissinger.  It was Kissinger, in 1973 who then went with Nixon to China, and made many “sweetheart” energy deals with the Chinese, which eventually lead to todays world economic meltdown.  If Nelson Rockefeller was Troika III, according to my chronology, then Henry Kissinger was Troika IIIB, a Troika assistant for Nelson. and the Kissinger and Associates Inc.--New York offices became the home of Troika IIIB.  What nobody noticed in 2003, was that Paul Bremer had been  working in Kissinger's office, and was appointed as an ambassador to somewhere based on his friendship to Secretary of State Henry Kissinger.
And by 2003 ambassador Bremer had become the president or head of Kissinger and Associates, (Kissinger was entering his quiet retirement years as  a frequent news commentator/Troika liar on FoxNews, while Bremer was left to run the world on his own) thus making Paul Bremer, Troika IIIC.  If Bush made any mistake in 2003 it was appointing the “unknown” ambassador Paul Bremer to head Iraq and to take control of the war away from Bush and the Pentagon and hand it over to the Troika.  At that point all hell broke loose in Iraq and cost the lives of many Americans in Iraq since then. The news story about who was Paul Bremer was never reported, and still remains a complete mystery until I just now told you in the Brojon Digest.
You may remember Paul Bremer from his frequent TV appearances.  After the army found Saddam Hussein hiding in a hole in Iraq it was Paul Bremer who announced proudly on TV “We found him.” Shortly after that Paul Bremer  just disappeared.  What happened to Bremer?  The army and the Pentagon had just figured out that Paul Bremer was not working for America, he worked for Kissinger and Associates as Troika IIIC.  The rumor leaked out that the Pentagon (meaning DIA, JAG, or NCIS) had “put out a hit on Bremer,” as if he were Troika agent Bin Laden or something. Then a strange thing happened.
Bremer gave his public goodbye speech in Iraq in 2004, then was supposed to board the Presidential plane and head for America as a hero.  But instead of entering the Presidential Boeing 747,  he walked around the big plane and instead suddenly boarded a small Lear Jet, probably a small CIA or Troika contractor plane and instead of going to America and Washington, he took a fast short hop just across the Iraqi border and landed in nearby Jordan.  And since then, Paul Bremer has been persona non-grata in the news.  He is not connected to any government.  After Bremer's leaving Iraq, I have found no web pages listing Bremer as even being alive.  I hope Kissinger is still paying his protege, or Paul Bremer is permanently out of a job. He should be arrested and sentenced, or whatever the Pentagon and the DIA, JAG, or NCIS was trying to do to him in 2004.
Beside using false Troika information about George Bush and the Iraqi war, Obama has many other campaign problems which will all come to a head in the next several days.  The biggest problem facing Obama is the little issue of where he was born.  Was he born in Hawaii, as he and his campaign claim since 2006. Or was he actually born in Kenya, Africa like all the members of his family, including older and younger bros and sisters and aunts and uncles.  Even his maternal Grandmother claimed in June 2008, “whats all the fuss about Barry's (Barack's) certificate, I watched him being born in the hospital here in Kenya.”
If he is born in Kenya, he is not a natural-born American and must resign the Presidency.  In 1961 when Obama was born, Kenya was a British protectorate, so Obama is actually a British citizen.  But can a popular charismatic British citizen, like Tony Blair, become an American president, even if elected by the American public.  NO. The US constitution requires that a president must be born in the US and not be born somewhere else and then later be given citizenship sometime after birth.  Strangely, the Republican John McCain has the same problem, he was born in Panama, not the US.  That's why McCain could never bring up the obvious Obama birth certificate issue during the 2008 campaign, since the counter argument would be that McCain was also not born in the US.
Many people thought that McCain was born on the military base called the Panama Canal Zone, and so legally it was part of America.  But hold on.  McCain's father was Admiral of the Pacific Fleet, not a small or lowly position in the Navy .  So I find it hard to believe that McCain was born in a small MASH hospital on a military base in the Canal Zone.  Rather the Admiral would send his wife to the largest nearby hospital in Panama with all the latest medical technology.  But that would be outside the Canal Zone. I have not seen McCain's birth certificate either, which would prove he was born in America.
I would assume that's why McCain was chosen as a Republican candidate since Hillary could easily dismiss him as president.  Thus both Obama and McCain were carefully chosen by the Troika for the hoaxed 2008 elections, as equally not qualified to become president – and thus regardless of who won the popular vote, Hillary could handily dismiss either one.  During the Obama/McCain debates if the birth issue ever came up, the debate would quickly devolve into sticking out tongues at each other with, “Nyah-Nyah, my birth claim is bigger than yours.”  Fortunately we were spared having to watch that insanity, which is why the topic never came up. That was the Troika Plan for the hoaxed 2008 elections in America.
And what about Hillary and Obama.  When did Hillary learn about Obama's birth problem?  Actually it was just about two weeks before the Democratic Convention, about August 10, 2008.  We know this from several documented news sources.  First, on August 1, 2008 democrat lawyer Philip Berg filed a lawsuit claiming no birth certificate existed to prove Obama was a natural born citizen as required by law.  Also on the document was the fact that Berg had sent a copy to the head of the Democrat Party, Howard Dean.  We have no evidence that Dean then notified Hillary nor any other Democrats.   But we do have the strange incident of Hillary bringing up the earlier maxim, “Obama is not electable” a statement made by Hillary's mouthpiece and strategist Mark Penn as early as 2007.  But for Hillary to repeat that old statement on August 10, 2008 to her campaign workers is curious.  Earlier in 2007 when Hillary was ahead of Obama in the polls, the “unelectable” comment was mere politics as usual.  But for Hillary to repeat the “unelectable” statement in August 2008 when Hillary was behind in the polls is inexplicable, unless Hillary had already been informed by Howard Dean of the pending birth certificate lawsuit.  And even if Obama won the national election on November 4th, he would be “unelectable” since as soon as he is inaugurated on Jan 20, 2009.  Hillary could use the same tactics she used on Nixon in 1974 to  hound Obama out of office, thus he was “unelectable.”
There have  been since Phil Berg, on Aug 1, 2008 about 15 more lawsuits all claiming Obama is not qualified to be President.   Most suits were quashed by the news media as nonsense, so most of the American public does not even know that Obama has a serious legal problem which blocks him from ever becoming President.  But the Supreme Court finally has agreed, it will look at Obama's birth certificate problem.  But it was first put off until after the election in November, and now even until right after the inauguration on Jan 23, 2009.  So you can expect that on this coming Friday, January 23, the shat will hit the fin, as thousands of politicians in Washington all suddenly scramble to  rearrange their realities to the fact that Obama is not really an  "African-American", as professed by such political experts as Oprah Winfrey.   He may look black, but he is only half-black, a mulatto, and he is not even American, he is British by birth.  What? So Obama is really a black-looking Britisher.  And not an "African-American" as everyone was made to believe.   How strange, who would have guessed?
So the reality of Obama is turned on its head, and Obama is Not Electable.  And if that were Obama's only problem, it might be forgivable given Barack's charismatic popularity.  But it is not.  Two weeks from now a cascade of bad news will suddenly hit the news media already planted by the Troika but not yet published in the American news,  a veritable flood of stories, aimed at Obama and aided by Hillary. which for months have remained hidden from the public.  They were hidden from the American news media by being published in the foreign press in places like Russia, but I follow the Russian press so the stories are not hidden from me.   But when added all together they will even force the public to call for Obama's resignation.  Thus even Hillary can seem to wash her hands of the whole mess, and just let the public do the dirty house cleaning while she walks in as the new President to save the public from “bad guy Obama's nonsense.”  It will seem all natural and normal, as do all Troika plans.  But I find them all disgusting, since I am a democrat and always have been since I was old enough to vote.  I like Barack Obama, but in the last year he has been forced by the Troika news media,  to lie in public to make him look like a liar and a “Bad Guy.”  He will soon be given the news media's “Bush treatment.”  The long laundry list of Obama's Troika dirty laundry is coming next...

Independent Groups Debunk Israeli War Propaganda

By Thalif Deen, IPS News
Posted on January 15, 2009

UNITED NATIONS (IPS) - As the Israelis try to justify the massive loss of civilian life in Gaza, their arguments and counter-charges continue to be shot down either by the United Nations or by international human rights organizations.

Did the Israelis misidentify a school run by the U.N. Relief Works Agency (UNWRA), where 43 Palestinians seeking shelter were killed in an early morning air strike? Or were there Hamas gunmen shooting from the school drawing Israeli fire?

Neither assertion is accurate, says John Ging, UNRWA's director of operations in Gaza.

All U.N. schools in Gaza are clearly marked, and they fly the Organization's distinctly discernible blue-and-white flags.

Moreover, he told reporters, Israel has been provided with Global Positioning System (GPS) coordinates of all of UNRWA's installations in Gaza.

So there could not have been a misidentification of the U.N. school in the Jabaliya refugee camp whose compound was hit by an artillery shell early this week.

Asked if Hamas militants could have taken shelter in the school that was attacked, Ging said that UNRWA was "hugely sensitive" to maintaining the integrity of its facilities.

"We vet all those who seek shelter in our facilities to make sure militants were not taking advantage of them," he said.

Ging said that after visiting the site, he was confident no militants had been inside the building at the time of the bombing and no fire had come from within.

However, he said, "Israel's position on the issue had shifted to suggest that militant fire had come from the vicinity of the school rather than from inside."

Still, Ging demanded an independent investigation to prove the U.N.'s credibility against the unfounded charges.

On Thursday, UNRWA was forced to suspend its relief work following the killing of one of its drivers and the wounding of another. They were in a clearly marked aid convoy.

Ging said that while the Israeli authorities had given clearance to U.N. aid workers to move around, "it is wholly and totally unacceptable that (Israeli) soldiers on the ground are firing on our aid workers."

On Friday, however, UNRWA resumed its relief operations after the Israeli defense ministry provided "credible assurances" that U.N. personnel and humanitarian operations would be fully respected.

Told that Israeli officials were denying the existence of a humanitarian crisis in Gaza, Under-Secretary-General for Humanitarian Affairs John Holmes dismissed the denial by pointing out that the crisis was "worsening day by day".

The appeals to halt the violence, he said, fell on deaf ears, both on the Israeli side and on the Hamas side.

According to the United Nations, the two-week old Israeli military operation in Gaza has killed 758 people, of whom 257 were children and 56 women, with 3,100 wounded, including 1,080 children and 452 women.

The staggering numbers were provided to the United Nations by the local Ministry of Health.

Although the United Nations could not independently verify the figures, Holmes told reporters "they appeared credible".

In contrast, the total number of Israeli deaths, both military and civilian, was about 10, including by friendly fire, according to press reports.

At a news conference Wednesday, Sarah Leah Whitson, executive director of the Middle East and North Africa Division of Human Rights Watch, said Israel had attacked police stations in Gaza on the ground they were "combatants".

"Police were not combatants and could not represent legitimate targets unless actively engaged in hostilities," she pointed out. "It was Israel's burden of proof to show the police they targeted were, indeed, Hamas militants."

Instead, she said, it appeared that Israel had targeted police stations on a "blanket basis".

Whitson said that only combatants actively engaged in fighting were legitimate targets of Israeli attacks.

Thus, a Hamas official at the Ministry of Health was not a legitimate target and neither was a Hamas media broadcasting station.

The situation in Gaza is so abominable that both the U.N. and international human rights organizations have refused to remain silent. Israel has been accused of violating both humanitarian law and the Geneva conventions on military operations.

In a letter to the U.N. Security Council Friday, the London-based Amnesty International (AI) called for firm action "to ensure full accountability for war crimes and other serious abuses of international human rights and humanitarian law".

AI also urged the Council to dispatch international human rights monitors to Gaza and southern Israel to investigate and report on the continuing abuses by both warring parties.

Even the Vatican seemed outraged by the unmitigated violence by the Israelis.

Cardinal Renato Martino, head of the Pontifical Council for Justice and Peace, compared Gaza to a "concentration camp", reminiscent of the horrors of a Nazi era -- provoking anger from the Israelis.

"Look at the conditions in Gaza," the Cardinal was quoted as saying, "more and more, it resembles a big concentration camp."

The IDF has no mercy for the children in Gaza nursery schools

By Gideon Levy, Haaretz Correspondent

The fighting in Gaza is "war deluxe." Compared with previous wars, it is child's play - pilots bombing unimpeded as if on practice runs, tank and artillery soldiers shelling houses and civilians from their armored vehicles, combat engineering troops destroying entire streets in their ominous protected vehicles without facing serious opposition. A large, broad army is fighting against a helpless population and a weak, ragged organization that has fled the conflict zones and is barely putting up a fight. All this must be said openly, before we begin exulting in our heroism and victory.


This war is also child's play because of its victims. About a third of those killed in Gaza have been children - 311, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry, 270 according to the B'Tselem human rights group - out of the 1,000 total killed as of Wednesday. Around 1,550 of the 4,500 wounded have also been children according to figures from the UN, which says the number of children killed has tripled since the ground operation began.
This is too large a proportion by any humanitarian or ethical standard.

It is enough to look at the pictures coming from Shifa Hospital to see how many burned, bleeding and dying children now lie there. History has seen innumerable brutal wars take countless lives.
But the horrifying proportion of this war, a third of the dead being children, has not been seen in recent memory.

God does not show mercy on the children at Gaza's nursery schools, and neither does the Israel Defense Forces. That's how it goes when war is waged in such a densely populated area with a population so blessed with children. About half of Gaza's residents are under 15.

No pilot or soldier went to war to kill children. Not one among them intended to kill children, but it also seems neither did they intend not to kill them. They went to war after the IDF had already killed 952 Palestinian children and adolescents since May 2000.


The public's shocking indifference to these figures is incomprehensible. A thousand propagandists and apologists cannot excuse this criminal killing. One can blame Hamas for the death of children, but no reasonable person in the world will buy these ludicrous, flawed propagandistic goods in light of the pictures and statistics coming from Gaza.

One can say Hamas hides among the civilian population, as if the Defense Ministry in Tel Aviv is not located in the heart of a civilian population, as if there are places in Gaza that are not in the heart of a civilian population. One can also claim that Hamas uses children as human shields, as if in the past our own organizations fighting to establish a country did not recruit children.

A significant majority of the children killed in Gaza did not die because they were used as human shields or because they worked for Hamas. They were killed because the IDF bombed, shelled or fired at them, their families or their apartment buildings. That is why the blood of Gaza's children is on our hands, not on Hamas' hands, and we will never be able to escape that responsibility.
The children of Gaza who survive this war will remember it. It is enough to watch Nazareth-born Juliano Mer Khamis' wonderful movie "Arna's Children" to understand what thrives amid the blood and ruin we are leaving behind. The film shows the children of Jenin - who have seen less horror than those of Gaza - growing up to be fighters and suicide bombers.

A child who has seen his house destroyed, his brother killed and his father humiliated will not forgive.

The last time I was allowed to visit Gaza, in November 2006, I went to the Indira Gandhi nursery school in Beit Lahia. The schoolchildren drew what they had seen the previous day: an IDF missile striking their school bus, killing their teacher, Najwa Halif, in front of their eyes. They were in shock. It is possible some of them have now been killed or wounded themselves.

Gaza: the Truth

Holocaust denied: the lying silence of those who know

8 Jan 2009

Writing in the New Statesman, John Pilger calls on 40 years of reporting the Middle East to describe the 'why' of Israel's bloody onslaught on the besieged people of Gaza - an attack that has little to do with Hamas or Israel's right to exist.

“When the truth is replaced by silence,” the Soviet dissident Yevgeny Yevtushenko said, “the silence is a lie.” It may appear the silence is broken on Gaza. The cocoons of murdered children, wrapped in green, together with boxes containing their dismembered parents and the cries of grief and rage of everyone in that death camp by the sea, can be viewed on al-Jazeera and YouTube, even glimpsed on the BBC. But Russia’s incorrigible poet was not referring to the ephemeral we call news; he was asking why those who knew the why never spoke it and so denied it. Among the Anglo-American intelligentsia, this is especially striking. It is they who hold the keys to the great storehouses of knowledge: the historiographies and archives that lead us to the why.
They know that the horror now raining on Gaza has little to do with Hamas or, absurdly, “Israel’s right to exist”. They know the opposite to be true: that Palestine’s right to exist was cancelled 61 years ago and the expulsion and, if necessary, extinction of the indigenous people was planned and executed by the founders of Israel. They know, for example, that the infamous “Plan D” resulted in the murderous de-population of 369 Palestinian towns and villages by the Haganah (Jewish army) and that massacre upon massacre of Palestinian civilians in such places as Deir Yassin, al-Dawayima, Eilaboun, Jish, Ramle and Lydda are referred to in official records as “ethnic cleansing”. Arriving at a scene of this carnage, David Ben-Gurion, Israel’s first prime minister, was asked by a general, Yigal Allon, “What shall we do with the Arabs?” Ben-Gurion, reported the Israeli historian Benny Morris, “made a dismissive, energetic gesture with his hand and said, ‘Expel them’. The order to expel an entire population “without attention to age” was signed by Yitzhak Rabin, a future prime minister promoted by the world’s most efficient propaganda as a peacemaker. The terrible irony of this was addressed only in passing, such as when the Mapan Party co-leader Meir Ya’ari noted “how easily” Israel’s leaders spoke of how it was “possible and permissible to take women, children and old men and to fill the roads with them because such is the imperative of strategy … who remembers who used this means against our people during the [Second World] war... we are appalled.”
Every subsequent “war” Israel has waged has had the same objective: the expulsion of the native people and the theft of more and more land. The lie of David and Goliath, of perennial victim, reached its apogee in 1967 when the propaganda became a righteous fury that claimed the Arab states had struck first. Since then, mostly Jewish truth-tellers such as Avi Schlaim, Noam Chomsky, the late Tanya Reinhart, Neve Gordon, Tom Segev, Yuri Avnery, Ilan Pappe and Norman Finklestein have dispatched this and other myths and revealed a state shorn of the humane traditions of Judaism, whose unrelenting militarism is the sum of an expansionist, lawless and racist ideology called zionism. “It seems,” wrote the Israeli historian Ilan Pappe on 2 January, “that even the most horrendous crimes, such as the genocide in Gaza, are treated as desperate events, unconnected to anything that happened in the past and not associated with any ideology or system... Very much as the apartheid ideology explained the oppressive policies of the South African government , this ideology – in its most consensual and simplistic variety – has allowed all the Israeli governments in the past and the present to dehumanise the Palestinians wherever they are and strive to destroy them. The means altered from period to period, from location to location, as did the narrative covering up these atrocities. But there is a clear pattern [of genocide].”
In Gaza, the enforced starvation and denial of humanitarian aid, the piracy of life-giving resources such as fuel and water, the denial of medicines and treatment, the systematic destruction of infrastructure and the killing and maiming of the civilian population, 50 per cent of whom are children, meet the international standard of the Genocide Convention. “Is it an irresponsible overstatement,” asked Richard Falk, the United Nations Special Rapporteur for Human Rights in the Occupied Palestinian Territory and international law authority at Princeton University, “to associate the treatment of Palestinians with this criminalized Nazi record of collective atrocity? I think not.”
In describing a “holocaust-in-the making”, Falk was alluding to the Nazis’ establishment of Jewish ghettos in Poland. For one month in 1943, the captive Polish Jews led by Mordechaj Anielewiz fought off the German army and the SS, but their resistance was finally crushed and the Nazis exacted their final revenge. Falk is also a Jew. Today’s holocaust-in-the-making, which began with Ben-Gurion’s Plan D, is in its final stages. The difference today is that it is a joint US-Israeli project. The F-16 jet fighters, the 250-pound “smart” GBU-39 bombs supplied on the eve of the attack on Gaza, having been approved by a Congress dominated by the Democratic Party, plus the annual $2.4 billion in war-making “aid”, give Washington de facto control. It beggars belief that President-elect Obama was not informed. Outspoken on Russia’s war in Georgia and the terrorism in Mumbai, Obama’s silence on Palestine marks his approval, which is to be expected, given his obsequiousness to the Tel Aviv regime and its lobbyists during the presidential campaign and his appointment of Zionists as his secretary of state, chief of staff and principal Middle East advisers. When Aretha Franklin sings “Think”, her wonderful 1960s anthem to freedom, at Obama’s inauguration on 21 January, I trust someone with the brave heart of Muntadar al-Zaidi, the shoe-thrower, will shout: “Gaza!”
The asymmetry of conquest and terror is clear. Plan D is now “Operation Cast Lead”, which is the unfinished “Operation Justified Vengeance”. The latter was launched by Prime Minister Ariel Sharon in 2001 when, with Bush’s approval, he used F-16s against Palestinian towns and villages for the first time. In the same year, the authoritative Jane’s Foreign Report disclosed that the Blair government had given Israel the “green light” to attack the West Bank after it was shown Israel’s secret designs for a bloodbath. It was typical of New Labour Party’s enduring, cringing complicity in Palestine’s agony. However, the 2001 Israeli plan, reported Jane’s, needed the “trigger” of a suicide bombing which would cause “numerous deaths and injuries [because] the ‘revenge’ factor is crucial”. This would “motivate Israeli soldiers to demolish the Palestinians”. What alarmed Sharon and the author of the plan, General Shaul Mofaz, the Israeli Chief of Staff, was a secret agreement between Yasser Arafat and Hamas to ban suicide attacks. On 23 November, 2001, Israeli agents assassinated the Hamas leader, Mahmud Abu Hunud, and got their “trigger”; the suicide attacks resumed in response to his killing.
Something uncannily similar happened on 5 November last, when Israeli special forces attacked Gaza, killing six people. Once again, they got their propaganda “trigger”. A ceasefire initiated and sustained by the Hamas government – which had imprisoned its violators - was shattered by the Israeli attack and home-made rockets were fired into what used to be Palestine before its Arab occupants were “cleansed”. The On 23 December, Hamas offered to renew the ceasefire, but Israel’s charade was such that its all-out assault on Gaza had been planned six months earlier, according to the Israeli daily Ha’aretz.
Behind this sordid game is the “Dagan Plan”, named after General Meir Dagan, who served with Sharon in his bloody invasion of Lebanon in 1982. Now head of Mossad, the Israeli intelligence organisation, Dagan is the author of a “solution” that has seen the imprisonment of Palestinians behind a ghetto wall snaking across the West Bank and in Gaza, effectively a concentration camp. The establishment of a quisling government in Ramallah under Mohammed Abbas is Dagan’s achievement, together with a hasbara (propaganda) campaign relayed through a mostly supine, if intimidated western media, notably in America, that says Hamas is a terrorist organisation devoted to Israel’s destruction and to “blame” for the massacres and siege of its own people over two generations, long before its creation. “We have never had it so good,” said the Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Gideon Meir in 2006. “The hasbara effort is a well-oiled machine.” In fact, Hamas’s real threat is its example as the Arab world’s only democratically elected government, drawing its popularity from its resistance to the Palestinians’ oppressor and tormentor. This was demonstrated when Hamas foiled a CIA coup in 2007, an event ordained in the western media as “Hamas’s seizure of power”. Likewise, Hamas is never described as a government, let alone democratic. Neither is its proposal of a ten-year truce as a historic recognition of the “reality” of Israel and support for a two-state solution with just one condition: that the Israelis obey international law and end their illegal occupation beyond the 1967 borders. As every annual vote in the UN General Assembly demonstrates, 99 per cent of humanity concurs. On 4 January, the president of the General Assembly, Miguel d’Escoto, described the Israeli attack on Gaza as a “monstrosity”.
When the monstrosity is done and the people of Gaza are even more stricken, the Dagan Plan foresees what Sharon called a “1948-style solution” – the destruction of all Palestinian leadership and authority followed by mass expulsions into smaller and smaller “cantonments” and perhaps finally into Jordan. This demolition of institutional and educational life in Gaza is designed to produce, wrote Karma Nabulsi, a Palestinian exile in Britain, “a Hobbesian vision of an anarchic society: truncated, violent, powerless, destroyed, cowed... Look to the Iraq of today: that is what [Sharon] had in store for us, and he has nearly achieved it.”
Dr. Dahlia Wasfi is an American writer on Palestine. She has a Jewish mother and an Iraqi Muslim father. “Holocaust denial is anti-Semitic,” she wrote on 31 December. “But I’m not talking about World War Two, Mahmoud Ahmedinijad (the president of Iran) or Ashkenazi Jews. What I’m referring to is the holocaust we are all witnessing and responsible for in Gaza today and in Palestine over the past 60 years... Since Arabs are Semites, US-Israeli policy doesn’t get more anti-Semitic than this.”  She quoted Rachel Corrie, the young American who went to Palestine to defend Palestinians and was crushed by an Israeli bulldozer. “I am in the midst of a genocide,” wrote Corrie, “which I am also indirectly supporting and for which my government is largely responsible.”
Reading the words of both, I am struck by the use of “responsibility”. Breaking the lie of silence is not an esoteric abstraction but an urgent responsibility that falls to those with the privilege of a platform. With the BBC cowed, so too is much of journalism, merely allowing vigorous debate within unmovable invisible boundaries, ever fearful of the smear of anti-Semitism. The unreported news, meanwhile, is that the death toll in Gaza is the equivalent of 18,000 dead in Britain. Imagine, if you can.
Then there are the academics, the deans and teachers and researchers. Why are they silent as they watch a university bombed and hear the Association of University Teachers in Gaza plea for help?  Are British universities now, as Terry Eagleton believes, no more than “intellectual Tescos, churning out a commodity known as graduates rather than greengroceries”?
Then there are the writers. In the dark year of 1939, the Third Writers’ Congress was held at Carnegie Hall in New York and the likes of Thomas Mann and Albert Einstein sent messages and spoke up to ensure the lie of silence was broken. By one account, 3,500 jammed the auditorium and a thousand were turned away. Today, this mighty voice of realism and morality is said to be obsolete; the literary review pages affect an ironic hauteur of irrelevance; false symbolism is all. As for the readers, their moral and political imagination is to be pacified, not primed. The anti-Muslim Martin Amis expressed this well in Visiting Mrs Nabokov: “The dominance of the self is not a flaw, it is an evolutionary characteristic; it is just how things are.”
If that is how things are, we are diminished as a civilised society. For what happens in Gaza is the defining moment of our time, which either grants the impunity of war criminals the immunity of our silence, while we contort our own intellect and morality, or gives us the power to speak out. For the moment I prefer my own memory of Gaza: of the people’s courage and resistance and their “luminous humanity”, as Karma Nabulsi put it. On my last trip there, I was rewarded with a spectacle of Palestinian flags fluttering in unlikely places. It was dusk and children had done this. No one told them to do it. They made flagpoles out of sticks tied together, and a few of them climbed on to a wall and held the flag between them, some silently, others crying out. They do this every day when they know foreigners are leaving, believing the world will not forget them.

Time to tell the Truth about Israel

David Icke Newsletter - 2nd January 2009

TIME TO TELL THE TRUTH ABOUT ISRAEL... WITHOUT FEAR OF THE MIND POLICE

The Thought Censors don't like it? Tough

The parallels are endless between the bloodthirsty 'God' of the Old Testament and the actions of the heartless, soulless, Artificial Intelligence that controls Israel, most notably the biological robots of the House of Rothschild who thus have no soul, no empathy, no more mercy for the consequences of their actions than a desktop computer. 

Imagine if Iran or anyone else outside Israel and the United States (both Rothschild assets) was doing what the Israeli military is doing in Gaza. There would be global condemnation, not least from Israel and the United States, resolutions passed in the UN Security Council and talk of the need for sanctions or military intervention to 'save the innocent'.

But when Israel does it we have vacuous calls for a truce, an end to the violence while 'understanding Israel's position', and, in terms of soon-to-be President 'Change' Obama, silence. It's all a fraction of what others would face because Israel is a wholly-owned asset of the Rothschilds and so is not subject to the same rules as anyone else. As former Israeli Prime Minister, Ariel Sharon, said:

'Israel may have the right to put others on trial, but certainly no one has the right to put the Jewish people and the State of Israel on trial.'

And Prime Minister Golda Meir betrayed the same Zionist arrogance:

'This country exists as the fulfilment of a promise made by God Himself. It would be ridiculous to ask it to account for its legitimacy.'

Ah, it's all in the Old Testament?  Gotcha, right, well do as you like then ...

... If you remove the injustice, you remove the motivation for a violent response to that injustice. Put people in a position where they either accept their pathetic plight or open fire and some are bound to choose the latter.

But instead of tackling the root cause, injustice, Israel responds with a state-of-the-art bombardment that kills hundreds and injures thousands in a few days, at least 90% of which are men, women and children who have nothing whatsoever to do with Hamas or their rockets. In 2007, 25 Palestinians were killed for every Israeli. That's more than just 'protecting yourself'.

'Then I heard the LORD say to the other men, “Follow him through the city and kill everyone whose forehead is not marked. Show no mercy; have no pity! Kill them all - old and young, girls and women and little children. But do not touch anyone with the mark. Begin your task right here at the Temple”.'

Blaming the Victims - The Dominant Media Vilify Hamas

January 2, 2009  by Stephen Lendman (www.opednews.com)

...After Japan attacked Pearl Harbor, Franklin Roosevelt addressed Congress - with an appropriating updating for Gaza:
December 27 "will live in infamy." The people of Gaza were "suddenly and deliberately attacked by....air forces of the" State of Israel. The "attack was deliberately planned many (months) ago. During the intervening time (Israel) deliberately sought to deceive (Palestinians) by false statements and expressions of hope for" the peace process.
"The (weekend and continued) attack(s) caused severe damage to" property throughout Gaza. In addition, "many (Palestinian) lives have been lost. The facts (on the ground) speak for themselves....this "unprovoked and dastardly attack" must not go unanswered.
Note the contrast. Japan in the 1940s sought accord, not conflict. Not America. FDR goaded them to attack through numerous harassments and provocations - selling arms to Tokyo's enemies, denying Japan strategic resources and port access, as well as imposing a damaging embargo.
For its part, Hamas has been conciliatory and sought peace. It's willing to recognize Israel in return for a sovereign Palestinian state inside pre-1967 borders - just 22% of it original homeland. In 2008 and earlier, it agreed to unilateral ceasefires in spite of repeated Israeli violations and Gaza in duress under siege. It responds only in self-defense when attacked as international law allows, yet Washington, Israel, and the West call it "terrorism."
The dominant media also in their customary role - guarding the powerful and suppressing uncomfortable truths in lieu of full and accurate reporting. They're in high gear over Gaza. They vilify Hamas, stay silent about Gazan suffering, are mute on the crippling blockade, its devastating human toll, and practically champion Israel's call for "all-out war" and the slaughter of defenseless men, women, children and infants.
"The more damage to Hamas, the better the chances for peace" says the Wall Street Journal in a lead December 28 editorial headlined "Israel's Gaza Defense." The Journal rewrites history this way:
"The chronology of this latest violence is important to understand. Israel withdrew both its soldiers and all of its settlers from Gaza in August 2005. Hamas won its internal power struggle with Mr. Abbas' Fatah organization to control Gaza in 2006. Since 2005 Hamas has fired some 6300 rockets at Israeli civilians from Gaza, killing 10 and wounding 780."
"Hamas did agree to a six-month ceasefire earlier this year, during which the rocket attacks declined in number but never stopped. But Hamas refused to extend the truce past December 19, and the group has since resumed attacks...." Israelis in the south "live under constant threat, often in bomb shelters, and the economy has suffered. Yet the world's media (only pays) attention when Israel responds to that Hamas barrage."
The Journal's op-ed page standard fare twists facts into a fabric of misinformation and agitprop, and when vilifying Hamas it's vicious. A few corrections:
-- Israel never disengaged from Gaza;
-- it relocated its settlers to seized West Bank land to strengthen its hold on the Territory;
-- it redeployed to new positions; re-enters Gaza at will; controls its airspace and coastline; movement within and between Gaza and the West Bank; virtually all other aspects of Palestinians' lives; and since Hamas' January 2006 electoral victory, falsely called it a terrorist organization; cut off all outside aid; imposed a crippling economic embargo; imprisoned 1.5 million Gazans in isolation; inflicted devastating human suffering; and stepped up oppression in an all too familiar pattern: repeated incursions, killings, targeted assassinations, mass arrests, incarcerations, torture, and all the rest;
-- then, after mid-June 2007, collaboratively and at the behest of Washington and Israel, president Mahmoud Abbas declared a "state of emergency" (when there was none); he dismissed Hamas' prime minister; appointed an "emergency" cabinet; split Palestinian authority between Gaza and the West Bank; incited internal conflict to divide and conquer; and acceded to Israel blockading Gaza - closing all border crossings; cutting off most essential to life supplies; creating critical shortages of everything; devastating local production and agriculture; sending poverty and unemployment soaring; and grievously harming the health and welfare of the population;

-- no Journal op-eds condemn this; they call Israel the region's "only democracy" and a model for others to emulate;
-- no op-eds mention thousands of Palestinians killed, many more wounded, even greater numbers imprisoned, many uncharged, torture as official policy, and no chance for redress in Israeli courts;

-- none mention previous Hamas unilateral ceasefires, one lasting 18 months despite repeated Israeli violations and continued other failures to observe international law;
-- none explain that rocket fire from Gaza during Hamas' ceasefire came from other elements in the Territory, not its own members;
-- none say that Hamas uses crude, homemade rockets and light arms against the world's fourth most powerful military, a nuclear power, with the latest home-produced and US supplied technology and weapons;
-- nothing gets reported about over 60 years of Israeli state terror; the unimaginable harm it's done; the continued theft of Palestinian lands; the destruction of their homes, crops and other property; the ethnic cleansing of its people; and Israel's slow-motion genocide against a population too isolated and weak to contest it;
-- no op-eds about one-sided media reporting; suppressing uncomfortable truths; defending the indefensible; ignoring Israeli crimes; vilifying Hamas without cause; Palestinians for being Arabs; and Arab Israeli citizens because they're not Jews;
-- no mention that the ratio of Arabs to Jews killed and harmed is disproportionately one-sided; or
-- that Palestinians have endured a brutal, illegal 41-year occupation in violation of international law; Journal editors find those facts uncomfortable, unimportant so they ignore them.
Instead the Journal supports the Gaza siege, and says "If Hamas wants its people to have freer movement, it can stop sponsoring terror killings." Even Arab leaders were "urged to demand that Hamas maintain the truce....so we could have avoided what happened."
In the aftermath, Journal editors hold Hamas responsible as does Washington. Arab leaders "understand that (Hamas' leaders), like Hezbollah, (are) increasingly allied with Iran and its goals for fomenting regional instability."
In fact, despite pro-forma criticism and anger on Arab streets, leaders in the region's capitals offered little support for Gazans for fear of antagonizing Washington and their powerful Israeli neighbor...
