Gaza-Gate is Madoff-J.P. Morgan Chase Mossad-Gate
by Tom Heneghan
International Intelligence Expert
Sunday January 4, 2009
United States of America – We can now report that the Israeli invasion of the Gaza Strip is, to a large degree, a disguise in an attempt to divert people's attention away from the escalating Bernard Madoff scandal now involving the theft of over $100 BILLION of investors' money, which has found its way, with the assistance of J.P. Morgan Chase and Swiss bank UBS Warburg, into SECRET national security accounts in Tel Aviv, Israel.
Reference: SEC Chairman Christopher Cox, along with White House pResident George W. Bushfraud, have aided and abetted obstruction of justice involving at least four (4) criminal referrals linking the Madoff case to J.P. Morgan Chase and two Swiss financial entities, Fairfield Greenwich Group and Tremont Group Holdings.
These shell Swiss corporations, tied to Swiss bank UBS Warburg and J.P. Morgan Chase, helped facilitate wire transfers of BILLIONS of dollars of stolen Madoff funds into Israel, where only the Jewish foundations can reclaim their lost investment.
AND IT GETS WORSE!
We can also divulge that the Federal Reserve Bank of New York forwarded the wire transfers disguised in Euro currency after converting the dollars into Euros at the noted New York Israeli Discount Bank (also linked to Bernard Madoff).
If you do not think it can get any worse, you are wrong – it is going to get a lot worse!
SEC whistleblowers have also tied Madoff and J.P. Morgan Chase to an Islamic charity, Jama'at-ud-Da'wah, which have been tied DIRECTLY to financing the Mumbai/Bombay, India terrorist attacks with the bagman and triggerman of the attacks being CIA-Mossad former Iran-Contra operative Dawood Ibrahim.
(L) Dawood Ibrahim Kaskar aka Dawood Hasan Shaikh,
(R) Saudi Arabian businessman Adnan Khashoggi Reuters
Item: Ibrahim still takes direct orders from Bush-Clinton Crime Family Syndicate arms dealer, former Iran-Contra facilitator Adnan Khashoggi.
Reference: Given the overwhelming TREASON evidence now mounting in the Bernard Madoff case, the Bush-Clinton Crime Family Syndicate may now be using the Mumbai/Bombay terror attacks, along with the Israeli invasion of the Gaza Strip, as a precursor to a FALSE FLAG terrorist attack on American soil,
which will allow White House occupant George W. Bushfraud to declare an emergency provision of the Patriot Act to continue in office 30 days beyond January 20, 2009.
In other words, a precursor to MARTIAL LAW.
Note: Last night on FOX News half breed Jew Geraldo Rivero had none other than soon-to-be convicted felon, former Rudy Giuliani and Bush Crime family crony, Bernard Kerik (left in photo), as its spokesman putting out false flag terrorist propaganda.
So you see, folks, the real terrorists are FOX News and Rupert Murdoch Greenberg.
Caroline Kennedy, daughter of
assassinated President John F. Kennedy Reuters
P.S. As KHAZARIAN Jews Rupert Murdoch Greenberg, Wolf Blitzer of CNN, and loser lesbian in-the-closet Hillary Rodenhurst Clinton continue their anti-Catholic attacks against Caroline Kennedy, the question should now be asked:
Who is corrupt and who is not corrupt?
Loser Hillary Rodenhurst Clinton, who is behind these attacks vs Caroline Kennedy, is totally corrupt.
(Reuters) We can divulge that loser Hillary is now linked to a ponzi scheme of her own with tie ins to Bernard Madoff, the New York Federal Reserve Bank and overseas interests.
A case in New York state is now on the docket, United States vs Norman Hsu, Docket No. 07CR1066-UM. Hsu, along with fellow KHAZARIAN Jew fundraiser Mark Gorenberg,
face charges of funneling campaign contributions for noted Democratic politicians, including unelectable loser Hillary Clinton, and re-paying the campaign contributors utilizing funds from none other than the Bernard Madoff trading accounts.
These funds, which were laundered through a major Austrian bank, also found their way into the wallets of major U.S. media moguls and anchormen, who then provided PRO Bush-Clinton positive media coverage for the Bush-Clinton Crime Family Syndicate.
The major network benefactor involving these ponzi scheme bribes
is none other than CNN network, (202) 898-7900.
Note: Another major scandal soon to engulf Hillary similar to the scandal that has now torpedoed former Clinton Administration Energy Secretary Bill Richardson:
A Donor's Gift Soon Followed Clinton's Help
by Charlie Savage
Richardson withdraws bid to be commerce secretary
by Nedra Pickler
KHAZARIAN Jews CNN Wolf Blitzer and loser Hillary Rodenhurst Clinton.
Anchor face and Israeli Mossad agent Wolf Blitzer, along with Gloria Borger and Kitty Pilgrim, recently received bribes from representatives of KHAZARIAN Jew Hillary Clinton .. to smear the daughter of assassinated PresidentJohn F Kennedy, Caroline Kennedy.
How dare you, you conspiratorial tyrants and kings and notable queens!
This is not a warning to CNN but a promise:
If you continue your Clinton News Network smears against Irish Catholic Caroline Kennedy you will regret it.
We have the spread sheets and account numbers for your entire network and others in the media who have taken funds for years under the table linked to Bernard Madoff and the Bush-Clinton Crime Family Syndicate.
Just to name a few on the list:
Current CBS News anchor face Katie Couric,
Homosexual in-the-closet Mike Allen of Politico,
Homosexual in-the-closet E. J. Dionne of the Washington Post,
KHARZARIAN Jew Howard Kurtz of CNN,
KHARZARIAN Jew and homosexual in-the-closet internet mogul, the anti-Catholic Matt Drudge aka Drecht,
Along with George Stephanopoulos of ABC News
As mentioned in previous briefings, the Bush-Clinton Crime Family Syndicate Number 1 bagman is KHAZARIAN Jew Joe Klein of TIME magazine.
All of these media whores, who are smearing Caroline Kennedy, are the same media whores that smeared then Vice President, now duly elected President Albert Gore Jr. during the year 2000 presidential election and enabled nation wrecker, war criminal, and sexual deviate Bushfraud to steal the year 2000 presidential election.
As Clinton Eastwood would say "Do you feel lucky" media filth?
If not, make my day!
P.P.S. We also want to divulge to you, folks, that the Madoff case also ties in to a state of Illinois bank money laundry, involving both the Turkish and Canadian Consulates in Chicago, which are currently under investigation by Special Counsel Patrick Fitzgerald.
At this hour, Fitzgerald is moving away from this line of inquiry and looking to classify this financial fraud as alleged "national security" even though both the Canadian and Turkish Consulates have been tied by FBI wiretaps to the bribing of hundreds of politicians in both political parties in the state of Illinois.
Reference: A very good source of mine close to the Fitzgerald inquiry told me last night that for some unimaginable reason, Fitzgerald is in weekly contact with
none other than George Herbert Walker Bush.
This very good source also informed me that Fitzgerald actually used Chicago Tribune editor James Warren as a stool pigeon to tip off Jesse Jackson Jr. on the financial deal involving Jackson's brother Jonathan and various Indian businessmen, which would procure the Illinois senate seat for Jackson Jr.,
that was to occur the very day the FBI arrested Illinois Governor Blagojevich in the early morning of the day the bribery was going to take place.
In other words, folks, the more we look at this case in Illinois the more it looks like Governor Blagojevich is being used as a patsy by Fitzgerald to cover up criminal activity of the Bush-Clinton Crime Family Syndicate
and its enablers at the Mossad-riddled Turkish and Canadian Consulates.
Note: Reverend Jesse Jackson and his son, Jesse Jackson Jr, are both lifelong FBI informants. So the question begs: Can the FBI investigate the FBI?
Reference: Fitzgerald is also still holding the 2005 indictments against Vice President Richard Cheney and former White House Deputy Chief of Staff Karl Rove, which Fitzgerald, himself, had 'SEALED', involving the Valerie Plame leak case, along with the tie in to the Bush-Clinton Crime Family Syndicate-Mossad-Gary Best "TRUE COLORS" assassination teams,
which involve, of course, both the Turkish and Canadian Consulates in Chicago.
Item: The question now becomes whether Illinois Governor Blagojevich has procured some of these FBI wiretaps from the Turkish and Canadian Consulates in Chicago and may actually be in the position to blackmail the entire Illinois State Legislature, along with the Bushfraud Justice Department,
and even have Special Counsel Fitzgerald indicted for Obstruction of Justice.
We should mention that Fitzgerald recently went to Court to get a 90-day extension involving his ongoing case against the Governor of Illinois.
Final note: At this hour the implementation of the Wanta-Reagan-Mitterrand Protocols still hang in the balance with the Bush-Clinton Crime Family Syndicate still operating a criminal conspiracy to keep the U.S. Treasury funds from being put back where they belong.
Massive counterparty derivatives tied to both J.P. Morgan Chase and Deutsche Bank in the amount of $400 TRILLION have forced bank dick Henry Paulson (Secretary of Treasury) to continue to engage in fraud and off-balance sheet trading practices,
which are designed to recoup losses in the trillions, which is now forcing the British government and Alistair Darling to request a 2nd bailout of British banks.
Note: The Bank of England is totally exposed with counterparty J.P. Morgan Chase derivatives linked to the East German Stasi DVD-daddy Bush-Andrea Merkel controlled Deutsche Bank.
This criminal filth is using Wanta's $4 TRILLION, which, of course, is due the U.S. and French Treasuries, to engage in criminal financial fraud on a nightly basis.
Reliable sources inform me that George W. Bushfraud will try to loot the $4 TRILLION in protocol funds, currently parked at the Bank of America, two days before he leaves office.
Note: Bushfraud's father, George Herbert Walker Bush, made a similar withdrawal from a Bank of America branch in Denver, Colorado two days before he left office in 1993.
Daddy Bush, who was on FOX News today, had the audacity to promote his other criminal son, election 2000 fixer and fraud master, Jeb Bush,
for Florida U.S. Senator and eventually the presidency.
Bushfraud will then pay his business associates and partners-in-crime, Bill and Hillary Clinton, a large commission derived from the protocol funds
fifteen minutes before Barack Obama is inaugurated president.
The commissions given to the Clintons by Bushfraud will be laundered through State Department secret proprietary accounts, which Hillary actually currently controls, along with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice,
and then forward it by wire transfers to the Mossad-owned Allied Bank of Ireland.
Note: The administrators for these accounts at the Allied Bank in Ireland are known Bush-Clinton Crime Family Syndicate-Mossad stooges Lorraine Fine and Gwendolyn Waymark.
Remember folks, all of this could have been avoided if Ambassador Leo Wanta, along with FBI Director William Sessions, General Vernon Walters, Vince Foster, French President Francois Mitterrand, and then Vice President, now non-inaugurated duly elected President Albert Gore Jr., were allowed to execute the arrest warrant issued in 1993
for Bush-Clinton Crime Family Syndicate bagman fugitive Marc Rich (East German Stasi DVD and Israeli Mossad agent).
It was none other than daddy Bush, Clinton White House Legal Counsel Abner Mikva, then First Lady Hillary Rodenhurst Clinton, former Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Mossad agent Lorraine Fine that tipped off Marc Rich about the impending sting operation that would grab him as he was about to take a ferry to Monte Carlo to gamble.
Note: Wanta was arrested by Swiss authorities on the orders of the Wisconsin Department of Revenue and illegally placed in a Swiss dungeon for 30 days.
Foster was later murdered on orders of the Clintons and the Bushes and dumped in Fort Marcy Park. Independent Counsel Kenneth Starr covered it up in return for a lucrative job at Pepperdine University.
Reference: At this hour, elements of the FBI are still investigating the illegal arrest of Wanta in Switzerland in 1993 and the kidnapping of Wanta in the late 1990s that took Wanta illegally from Wisconsin to a gulag type imprisonment in Sayre, Oklahoma.
We can now divulge that there are tape recorded conversations made by the FBI in which Wisconsin Governor Tommy Thompson, Oklahoma Governor Frank Keating and then Clinton Department of Human Services Secret Donna Shalala
discuss the need to kidnap Wanta and then kill him in the Oklahoma facility.
Of course Shalala was appointed to her job in the Clinton Administration given her friendship and business dealings with then First Lady Hillary Clinton.
It is interesting to note that Shalala and Thompson, along with Hillary, had a major link to the secret Swiss account, which was part of the Children's Defense Fund in New York state. The account was also linked to Marc Rich.
The account was illegally looted by Mickey Kantor, Marc Rich and the Clintons
after Wanta was arrested and Vince Foster was murdered.
Question to CNN and Wolf Blitzer: Is this the experience and qualifications that one needs in order to be Secretary of State of the United States?
Would this be part of Hillary's resume?
Message to Blitzer: We now see why all of the Mossad crooks in New York state are afraid of Caroline Kennedy.
Folks, guess who the attorney was in Wisconsin for the Children's Defense Fund. None other than Kenneth Starr, the alleged Independent Counsel investigating the Clintons.
...( results of depleted uranium ) ...
Commander and Thief Bushfraud ILLEGALLY allowed Israel to use American GPS satellite signals for their invasion of the Gaza Strip (in violation of NATO protocols),
and is allowing U.S. Taxpayers' money to be used to finance the use of depleted uranium weapons that Israel is currently using in their invasion of the Gaza Strip.
Note: Bushfraud has been blackmailed his entire term by the Israeli Mossad given the use of the Mel Sembler-Israeli administered Bay Point schools project
that helped him STEAL the year 2000 presidential election in Florida and Tennessee from then Vice President, now non-inaugurated, duly elected President Albert Gore Jr.
Bushfraud, complicit with the 9/11 Israeli Mossad New Jersey-based Urban Moving Systems "Dancing Israelis", has been playing the phony "war on terror" card since the day of 9/11 itself, when Bushfraud allowed Israeli Pentagon intelligence officers to flee the United States for Israel before they could be interviewed by the FBI given their link to the 9/11 Urban Moving Systems gang
and the Israeli Mossad owner of Urban Moving Systems, Dominick Suter.
Note: Suter was also allowed to flee the United States by then Assistant Attorney General now head of the Department of Homeland Security, Mossad agent
and TRAITOR and 9/11 co-conspirator Michael Chertoff.
Those in the U.S. Military that are still patriotic, it is time to replace the Department of Homeland Security with the Department of Criminal Roundup.
While you are at it, you might want to arrest these Israeli Mossad assassins that are being allowed to enter the United States at this hour, through New York City,
with the intention of assassinating American citizens opposed to Bush-Clinton-Mossad Crime Family occupation.
They are entering under the cover as
members of the Czechoslovakian delegation to the European Union.
At this hour we urge the U.S. Military to do their duty:
First, to turn off the satellite signals of CNN and FOX News
and then proceed with the arrest of every Bush-Clinton Crime Family Syndicate member still present on American soil.
We live free or die as we continue to identify the enemies of the American Republic and the 2nd American Revolution in the 21st Century and eradicate them.
Overlord at Yorktown......(...)

.......POOF...... ( POOF Report - January 4, 2008 )
Greetings and Salutations;
Uh huh, yea I know....'where's my money man?' The first word is, 'safe', second word is, 'ready' for everyone's hot little hands. I know that many have the concept that nothing will drop until after the inauguration, that was never their plan. It was going to happen, as soon as, the 'protector' saw that we could safely access, without mice holes open for thievery and citi and duetsche banks, paid up, what they owed. Once the money was sent to where it was suppose to go, the bad guys activated a bunch of mole trustees, to slow it down from arrival. If you knew what was going on, you'd have seen the instant connection in the events. The bad guys knew once they handed over the funds, delivery would occur instantly after.
The proper and ordained players in the big picture, have administrated and done their due diligence to clean and clear the highway for the rocket 88 to blow off the starting line. Most americans believe, the world gov is a mystical concept having no bearing on anything our gov chooses to do. Well, I guess this is where an update in information is forthcoming. The american people will be brought up to speed on a whole host of issues involving living on a planet, where cooperation has become paramount. This will begin at the conclusion of the drops, starting with being told they now have a new treasury. It's not 'turtle island' anymore. In case you're unfamiliar with that term, it's what america was called by the native people of this land.
I won't say much more, because we are 'there' and the only thing left to do is drop these puppies and let the games begin. Anyone who wants to get in front of that rocket 88 is going to find themselves with tire tracks across their backs. No one is invisible out here, arrogant as hell, but not invisible. Cheney reminds me of the little mouse who stood looking up at an eagle diving from the sky, talons extended, with the single digit out for a response. It was from an old poster entitled, 'The Last Act of Defiance'. Be arrogant, be defiant, but you still get eaten. The only place left to hide is in those deep underground bases they have built, but even they aren't secret from those who have a need to know.
None of the countries they've approached over the last 8 years, want them....for any amount of money...devaluing dollars, no thanks. They even have to pay the isreali's in euros now...imagine that.
Stay loose and be ready, it's coming like a lightning bolt ....
PAUL PANTONE, GIFTED INVENTOR, WRONGFULLY IMPRISONED IN UTAH MENTAL HOSPITAL *VID* PLEASE READ
Posted By: Sandollar <Send E-Mail>
Date: Saturday, 3 January 2009, 4:46 p.m.
I am a member of several Yahoo message boards and today, someone posted this information. Please take the time to watch the videos as this is how low we have stooped as a country. Warning some graphic pictures. This brought me to tears.
If anyone can help, please do. Mr. Pantone is a true hero.

Paul Pantone Wrongfully Imprisoned
I met an inventor named Paul Pantone in the late 90's at a Tesla convention where I saw his GEET device working and he told me many inside details about it. Even back then he was getting serious death threats and harassment on a regular basis. I just learned that he was set up by crooked attorneys and has been wrongfully imprisoned and tortured for 3+ years now in a Utah mental hospital. I've only watched the first of these 3 videos so
far. It's just 8:20 long and very well worth watching if you want to see what our government is doing to suppress working free energy technology:
A little summary of the GEET device: It is a fairly simple modification that can be done on just about any gasoline engine, from lawn mowers to giant industrial power plants, that allows the engine to run on just about any kind of junk hydrocarbons as 80+% of it's fuel. It really is very close to the same concept as the car in the Back to the Future movie. I watched it run on seawater, urine, Windex, Mountain Dew, etc. and produce exhaust
that was cleaner then the outside air. In other words, this exhaust belongs INSIDE the car where the people are. I can't even mention some of the suppression Paul was experiencing back then, and it has only gotten worse. If you just start watching some of the other videos on the GEET you can get
an idea how bad it has been for him all these years. He is one of the true heros of our world and he is probably going to die a horrible death in that so-called hospital if we don't get him out soon. Please watch the first video here and pass the word on. And find out what the GEET is and how it works, while you still can. We could be done with fossil fuels NOW if we
could just break this suppression so that manufacturers could start producing this modification on all the new engines being produced that are still getting pour mileage and polluting the air.
Thanks, Daniel Moeck
The monday analysis, this week ...:
(...) According to Israel, it targeted "terrorist infrastructure". Major Avital Leibovitch, a military spokeswoman, expanded on this curious idea: "Anything belonging to Hamas could be a target. You can interpret that as you like." Since Hamas was democratically elected in Gaza, what they are really saying is that the entire territory, population and infrastructure can be targeted because it can be interpreted as "belonging to Hamas". Bear in mind that contrary to the assurances that these are surgical strikes, it would be impossible to spare civilians, even if they wanted, because Gaza is one of the most densely populated places on the planet - very similar to the Warsaw Ghetto of Jews in Nazi occupied Poland during WW II (the parallels are striking, in fact). The videos available are already showing civilian casualties.
As Israel calls up 6,500 reservists, it is just a matter of time before the land invasion, regardless of what you hear from our beloved leaders about calls for ceasefire. This genocidal invasion - because that is what it will soon turn into - begins just as Gaza has run out of bread.
But be aware, the pathological ruling elite of Israel is ambitious; it is not only Gaza that they are after. Barak was also quoted as saying:
If it built even a primitive nuclear weapon like the type that destroyed Hiroshima, Iran would not hesitate to load it on a ship, arm it with a detonator operated by GPS and sail it into a vital port on the east coast of North America.
Is he telling us what Israel is actually planning to do (or try)?!
Meanwhile, as you are watching the news, try to pay attention at how many times the Israeli leaders and their sockpuppets seek to link Hamas to Iran keeping in mind that "Anything belonging to Hamas could be a target. You can interpret that as you like."
In our opinion, this is, perhaps, what will eventually prove to be the piece of the pie that chokes Israel. Iran is not Gaza, and Russia has seen no reason not to move closer to Iran and sell them anti-aircraft missiles, while promising to support Palestine. You would think that the Israelis might be aware of a particular quote from their own literature; you know, the one about digging a pit for someone else and about pride going before a fall?
A Call To Sanity
Resistance must come from a human heart
As the globe rapidly descends into financial chaos, even those in affluent western countries are starting to feel the pinch. The colossal scale of global theft by the power elite becomes harder to hide (it's not like they are even trying to hide it, though!), and now we also see the escalating violence against the inhabitants of Gaza, which can no longer be kept secret by the world's mass media. So, understandably, people are beginning to rebel and revolt, in an attempt to take back control of their lives and change the reality around them. Unfortunately, there is very little real understanding by the general population of the events (and their causes) that threaten to engulf us.
People are starting to feel motivated to make some change in the world, to protest against the unimaginable injustice and to maybe have some positive effect. But there is the danger of falling into the same traps as always. Agents provocateurs will insinuate themselves into these groups, instigating racism and hatred, possibly through the use of violence, and thus providing the perfect, convenient justification for the 'powers that be' to squash public freedom of speech. Also, should any revolutionary action look to be successful, pathological individuals will be able to tap into the blind emotional reactions of the masses and use them to misdirect any new power struggle towards their own opportunistic ends; thus it has ever been.
"Meet the new boss, same as the old boss."
Perhaps it is true that people have the ability to alter their reality by their actions. However, there is a large caveat: It seems that if one acts on the basis of a subjective belief (and we are all subjective to a greater or lesser degree), then the results of one's actions will produce a different result from that which was intended, and may very likely have the opposite effect. Contrary to the belief of many new agers, one does not "create one's own reality" with 'positive' thinking. One interacts with objective reality in complex ways that are not fully understood because most of it is not visible. This is why at SOTT we do not advocate revolutionary measures such as taking the law into our own hands, or taking to the streets as an angry mob. Violence begets violence. The forceful overthrowing of a government is a situation tailor-made for the psychopath, a master of turning emotional and chaotic situations to his advantage, whilst maintaining a facade of righteous justification. How many revolutionary leaders were psychopaths?
Nor do we recommend simply thinking happy thoughts and 'imagining' the problems away. Denying reality does not cause it to disappear, but is far more likely to bring one into a head-on collision with it. Instead, in order to cure the 'disease', the reality we face must be carefully examined, analyzed and diagnosed, without flinching at its more unsavory features.
A real solution must be an educated one - involving a search for true knowledge and a greater understanding of the world around us including the human beings within it, with the aim of eventually acquiring some level of objectivity. At SOTT this search has led to the discovery of the studies of psychopathy and ponerology which go a long way toward making sense of our world and putting current events in a rational context.
Political Ponerology describes how, in times of revolution, mankind regularly falls into the same traps - where well-meaning attempts to wrestle control from the psychopathic elite inevitably become co-opted into a power-grab by a new set of opportunistic pathologicals. These deviant persons will use any ideology as a trojan-horse, bending it to their advantage, harnessing the emotional weight of the situation to hitch a ride on the efforts of those who genuinely seek change, thus subverting the new status quo.
Pathological individuals will actively use times of unrest to seek out those most susceptible to psychological manipulation. These are put to work to unwittingly further the psychopathic agenda whilst thinking they are bringing 'revolutionary change'. Lobaczewski describes how this process of 'fishing' was carried out during his time at university:
Someone nobody knew appeared behind the lectern and in-formed us that he would now be the professor. His speech was fluent, but there was nothing scientific about it: he failed to distinguish between scientific and ordinary concepts and treated borderline imaginings as though it were wisdom that could not be doubted. For ninety minutes each week, he flooded us with naive, presumptuous paralogistics and a pathological view of human reality. We were treated with contempt and poorly controlled hatred. Since fun-poking could entail dreadful consequences, we had to listen attentively and with the utmost gravity.
"You can't convince anyone this way!" we whispered to each other. "It's actually propaganda directed against themselves." But after such mind-torture, it took a long time for someone to break the silence.
We studied ourselves, since we felt something strange had taken over our minds and something valuable was leaking away irretrievably. The world of psychological reality and moral values seemed suspended as if in a chilly fog. Our human feeling and student solidarity lost their meaning, as did patriotism and our old established criteria. So we asked each other, "are you going through this too"? Each of us experienced this worry about his own personality and future in his own way. Some of us answered the questions with silence. The depth of these experiences turned out to be different for each individual.
If any of this sounds familiar, then consider the vast weight of propaganda to which we are subjected every day, to the power elite's complete stranglehold over the global mass media, and to the wealth of psychological knowledge which is poured into this finely-tuned efforts to send us to sleep, and to kill our consciences dead. Fortunately, there are ways to defend oneself:...(...)
Within this system, the common man is blamed for not having been born a psychopath, and is considered good for nothing except hard work, fighting and dying to protect a system of government he can neither sufficiently comprehend nor ever consider to be his own.
We see the same tactics used time after time, where peaceful protest is pushed over the edge into violent chaos by agents provocateurs, which then becomes a situation ripe with opportunities for the pathological opportunist, and the whole process starts all over again. The only thing that will ever work is a widespread understanding of the psychopaths who currently rule our world; and peaceful resistance to this influence, by the majority of the whole population.
People need to slow down and stop falling repeatedly into the same traps. What is important is the sharing of knowledge of pathology and pathocracy, and to find peaceful ways to withdraw support from these vampiric structures.
The conflict is ultimately not a political one - that is a mistake often made; it is a conflict between psychopaths (with their 'biological imperative' of enslavement of 'normal' people) and the rest of humanity; it IS a war between good and evil, just not the way Bush and Co depicted it.
As long as the general population fails to grasp this distinction, it will continue to be drawn into the psychopathic maneuvers, to be used as pawns in a power-struggle it does not understand, and to have its life-force diverted towards the process of its own destruction.
Happy New Year! May you grow in knowledge!
The-Butchering-Of-Gaza- - -Nazi-Germany-Revisited:
Much has already been written about the eight-day-long running massacre of Palestinians that is taking place in Gaza. Indeed, what more can be said when it is clear that the Israeli government is intent on blithely ignoring all petitions, both the ambivalent and the unequivocal, to stop the indiscriminate murder.
At least 450 dead so far (other reports put the figure closer to 500), many of them civilians, women, children, old and young, the rest policemen or Hamas officials. At least 2000 injured, many too seriously to survive or be treated in Gaza's severely blockaded hospitals. In short, in the last eight days the state of Israel has murdered approximately 500 innocent Palestinians and seriously injured 2000, and the representatives of the world's leading democracies sit virtually silent. Make no mistake and do not be fooled by the mainstream media reporting, every single Palestinian that has died or been injured as a result of the Israeli bombardment of Gaza is innocent. When a people that have been dispossessed of their land, livelihoods and homes, occupied, periodically murdered and regularly starved take action to resist and defend themselves, they are guilty of nothing but standing up for their human rights and their rights under international law.
Israel government ministers and their lackeys in the mainstream press are however eager to muddy the waters of this plain truth. They try to present the Gaza turkey shoot in much more vague terms. Reference is repeatedly made to the "violence" in Gaza and the toll it is taking. Consider this CNN headline and summary from the first day of the bombardment:
Obama, Rice discuss Gaza strikes
President-elect Barack Obama spoke with Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice on Saturday about the violence in Gaza, which has left as many as 225 people dead, two transition aides told CNN.
You see? It's the "violence in Gaza" that has been killing Palestinians, not Israeli government policy and war planes. ....(...)
Taken in the context of the current deplorable state of our world, the fact that Palestinians are being indiscriminately murdered may not seem so important to the average Westerner. After all, over the past few weeks thousands of Ugandans have been killed by DRC rebels (for but one example of the bloodletting going on around the world). Is the suffering of Ugandans any less significant to the average Western citizen than that of the Palestinians? Yes and no. From a humanitarian point of view it is no less significant, but from a political and social point of view the crimes against humanity in Gaza are more significant.
As a member of a first world democracy, you are being asked to believe by your political leaders and the mainstream press that Israel and its armies are acting justifiably and that even as they drop one ton bombs on Palestinian homes, the state of Israel remains, in the recent words of George Bush, "a light onto the nations" and a fellow democratic nation. You are not being asked to believe that the DRC rebels are anything but murderous psychopaths (albeit secretly supported by Western governments). At stake then (other than the lives of innocent Palestinians) is your conscience and your ability to recognise blatant and murderous lies when you read or hear them. Also at stake is, perhaps, a final chance to understand the true nature of Western democratic government.
The Israeli government claims that Hamas broke a ceasefire recently and began firing rockets into Israel and that the bombing of Gaza by the Israel air force is to stop the firing of these rockets by Hamas.
The truth is that Israel broke a five-month-long ceasefire with Hamas on November 4th, 2008 by assassinating six Hamas officials in Gaza. Please note the date that was chosen to do so (election day in the US). As reported recently in Haaretz, the attack on Gaza was planned six months ago. The Israel government has also flagrantly violated the terms of an agreement that it signed in November 2005 which stipulated that 400 truckloads a day of exports should have been leaving Gaza by the end of 2006. No goods have been allowed to leave Gaza and vital medical and food supplies have been regularly cut off over the past 4 years leaving much of Gaza's 1.5 million people malnourished.
Israel claims that the homemade, sugar-fueled rockets that wobble their way from Gaza towards the vicinity of nearby Israeli towns and which generally land harmlessly far and wide of their targets are its causus belli. These rockets are clearly primitive and by now every Palestinian must realise that they are useless as a weapon against the Israeli occupation of Palestine. More than that, every Palestinian must realise that the surest way to increase the chance that they or several members of their family will be dismembered by an Israeli missile is to keep firing impotent rockets into Israel. The REAL value of such rockets therefore is as justification to the Israel government to continue massacring and generally brutalizing the Palestinian people.
The logical deduction therefore is that it is not Hamas that has been firing rockets into Israel from the Gaza strip but the state of Israel itself.
Hamas blames 'Israeli collaborators' for launching rockets:
Sun, 12 Oct 2008
The Hamas rulers of Gaza Strip on Tuesday lashed out at gunners who fire rockets at Israel from the Palestinian territory in violation of a seven-week-old calm, calling them Israeli collaborators. "About the rocket-firing, I think those who are responsible are those who collaborate with Israel because there is a consensus by all Palestinian groups to respect the truce," said Dr. Mahmud Zahar, a senior leader of the Hamas movement.
(...) /// That agents of the state of Israel are behind much if not all of the "Hamas rockets" is a reasonable conclusion and backed up by the Israeli governments long term penchant for fabricating Muslim terrorism. ...(...)
How much evidence is required before we accept the fact that Israel's existence, in its current form, is predicated on a "threat to its existence" from its Arab neighbors
and that the Israeli government will do whatever it takes to maintain that threat?
How many times will the Israeli government be allowed to dismiss as "absurd" the repeated allegations and evidence that it is behind much of the major "Muslim terrorism"
to which it so enthusiastically responds? ...
It is using massive GBU-39 "bunker buster" missiles recently acquired from and with the blessing of the US government. It is firing missiles at carloads of civilians and then posting videos on Youtube claiming that the cars were carrying rockets. Two days ago the state of Israel murdered five young girls, all sisters aged four to 17, while they slept in their beds. Even Palestinian donkeys and carts carrying children are fair game to Yahweh's storm troopers.
The Israeli government is urging you, the Western public, to not only condone(( approuver)) these atrocities but to accept them as being carried out in your name. ....
The Nazis massacred millions of people over a twelve year period from 1933 to 1945. WWII (which claimed the lives of 65 million people) was ignited by an act of brutality very similar in nature to the Israeli actions in Palestine. The ideological descendants of the bankers, political leaders, military men and global geopolitical strategists that financed, pursued and profited from that last "great" war are today sitting in Tel Aviv, Washington and London with mass murder and mayhem once again on their minds.
So let us not allow history to repeat itself, yet again, by permitting the clearly psychopathic morality of our political leaders to be passed off as "freedom and democracy" or a "just fight" against some manufactured foe. Let us, if only with our collective conscious awareness, resist the blatant crimes against humanity and massacring of the innocent that is taking place in Gaza. And let us remember the core issue and injustice that must be addressed before Israel's right to exist can ever be recognised: (( stolen palestinian land )).

.. A PICTURE .....
The blame game - no one plays it better than the dominant media, and they're at it again over Gaza. Expect no comments below in their spaces, yet honest journalism would headline them.
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 its 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. ...(...)
In his "Dachau to Gaza" article, law professor, international law expert, and former PLO legal advisor Francis Boyle compared Washington and Israel's aims to Hitler's Munich Pact for Germany to occupy and annex the Sudetenland. Today it's to seize Palestinians' land and deny them "self-determination and a real independent state of their own." As a result, he fears a "high probability that history will repeat itself" in more conflict.
In 1986, he visited the US Embassy in Tel Aviv, complained about "criminal Israeli occupation practices," its violations of international law, and that America "has an absolute obligation to use its enormous political, military and economic leverage over Israel to terminate (these) practices immediately."
Yet since Israel's establishment in 1948 and its post-1967 occupation of Gaza and the West Bank, Washington has one-sidedly supported Israel and denied Palestinians their "freedom, justice, dignity, respect and independence." One day, America must end this policy and "order Israel out of Palestine." Until then, no Middle East peace is possible and the possibility of greater conflict exists.
Like others wanting war crimes to be punished, Boyle also advocates "An International Criminal Tribunal for Israel (ICTI) as "the Only (possible) Deterrent to a Global War." He urges the General Assembly to establish one as a "subsidiary organ" under Article 22 of the UN Charter. It would be similar to those for Yugoslavia (ICTY) and Rwanda (ICTR) to:
"investigate and prosecute Israeli war crimes, crimes against humanity and genocide against the People of Lebanon and Palestine." It would "provide some small degree of justice to the victims" of decades of Israeli crimes, thus far committed with impunity. "It would also have a deterrent effect" on current Israeli leaders and generals and force future ones to obey international laws or face similar prosecution.
Without legal restraints, Boyle, like others, fears possible new Middle East conflict that could "degenerate into World War III," not by intent but by accident, much like WW I developed. He urges General Assembly action to prevent it at a time attacks on Gaza persist, the Arab street is enraged, and the longer fighting continues, the greater the risk of something far greater.
Israel is a serial aggressor. Its lawlessness can no longer be tolerated. Mass outrage and world pressure must build for a global campaign for boycott, divestment and sanctions until its human rights abuses stop, its war crimes are punished, its occupation and colonization end, Palestinian refugees have the right to return, and the people of Gaza and the West Bank achieve their long-denied self-determination rights in an internationally recognized sovereign state, free from Israeli oppression. For people of conscience, that's Resolution One for the new year.

(...) I grew up in Israel in the 1970's people of my generation are nowadays the leaders of the Israeli army, politics, economy, academia and the arts. We were trained to believe that 'a good Arab is a dead one'.
(..) Luckily enough, and for reasons that are still far beyond my comprehension, at a certain stage I woke up out of that Hebraic lethal dream. At one point I left the Jewish state, I evaded the Jewish hate mongering, I had become an opponent of the Jewish state and any other form of Jewish politics. However, I am utterly convinced that it is my primary duty to inform every being that is willing to listen about that which are we up against.
As much as Zionism was there to transform Jews, and by "giving them a State of their own" make them like any other people, it failed miserably. The Israeli barbarism as we have seen this week and too many times before is far beyond bestiality. It is killing for the sake of killing. And it is indiscriminate.
Not many people in the west are aware of the devastating fact that killing Arabs and Palestinians in particular is a very effective Israeli political recipe. The Israelis are indeed confused people. As much as they insist upon seeing themselves as a 'Shalom seeking'  nation, they also love to be led by politicians with an astonishing record of unlawful murderous activity. Whether it was Sharon, Rabin, Begin, Shamir or Ben Gurion, Israelis love their 'democratically elected leaders' to be belligerent hawks with their hands dripping with blood and backed by a solid record of crimes against humanity.
We are weeks before an election in Israel and as it seems, both Kadima PM candidate Foreign minister Tzipi Livni and Labour PM candidate Defence minister Ehud Barak, are trailing well behind Likud PM candidate the notorious Hawk Benjamin (Bibi) Netanyahu. Livni and Barak need their little war. They must prove to the Israelis that they know how to engage in mass slaughter. (...)
Seemingly, in Israeli politics, Arab blood is translated into votes. It would obviously be very reasonable to charge Livni, Barak and the current IDF Chief of Staff Ashkenazi with first-degree murder, crimes against humanity and the obvious breach of the Geneva Convention. But it would be far more intelligible to take into account that Israel is a 'democracy'. Livni, Barak and Ashkenazi are giving the Israeli people that which they want: it is called Arab blood and it must come in vast quantity. This repetitive murderous practice, conducted by Israeli politicians reflects on the Israeli people as a whole rather than just a few politicians and generals. We are dealing here with a barbarian society that is politically driven by bloodthirstiness and lethal inclinations. There should be no mistake, there is no room for these people amongst nations.
Why the Israeli are people so remote from any notion of humanism is a big question. The generous and naïve humanists amongst us may argue that the Shoah left a big scar in the Israeli soul. This may explain why Israelis are obsessively cultivating that very memory with the support of their Diaspora brothers and sisters. The Israelis say 'never again' and what they mean is that Auschwitz should never reoccur, this somehow allows them to punish the Palestinian for the crimes committed by the Nazis. The realistic amongst us do not buy this argument anymore. They start now to admit that it is more than possible that the Israelis are so incredibly brutal just because this is how they are. It goes far beyond rationality or pseudo-analytical assumptions. They say, 'this is what the Israelis are and there is not much we can do about it anymore'. The realistic amongst us come to admit that killing is how the Israelis interpret the meaning of being Jewish. (...)
Barak was one of those 1967 heroes, he was a master indiscriminate killer. Apparently, the Israeli cabinet has just approved his plan for the biggest raid on Gaza since 1967.
Livni is more or less my age, as we read the news, she internalised the message. She is now accumulating the necessary credentials as an indiscriminate murderer. Both Barak and Livni are taking Israel and Palestine into an election campaign of slaughter. Arab and Palestinian blood is the fuel of Israeli politics. (...)
NOTE:  Do not confuse 'shalom' with 'peace' or 'salam'. While peace and salam refer to reconciliation and compromise, shalom means security to the Jewish people on the expense of their surrounding environment.

Nabeel, on December 29th, 2008:
@Tim - Tim, this is what most of the common men like me and you fail to understand. It is all staged. This is the entire zionist game plan. To establish a greater Israel at any cost. no matter what has to be done for it. Rocket fire from hamas is something that has no reported evidence. The zionists have always used such false flags to justify their planned shameful offenses. And even if there was rocket fire from the Hamas militants, the world should understand that there should always be clear cut terms of engagement in war. Israel has no such terms, hence the ruthless murder and bloodshed off hundreds of innocent civilians of Palestine. Think. Just THINK!

Mary Rizzo on December 30th, 2008 at 9:54: (...)
[Some perspective and background information:
In the 7 (seven) years since the launching of the Palestinian primitive Qassam rockets started, and until this massacre started 3 days ago, they killed a total of 13 innocent Israelis and one foreigner.
In that period Israel killed 2990 Palestinians (634 of them children!) in the Gaza strip, (total of 4781 in Gaza and the West bank), very large number of the killed were innocent civilians, including many women and children.
See the Israeli human rights website for these statistics, circumstances of the killings and more: http://www.btselem.org .
Above figures do not include the many Palestinians in Gaza who died in the last 18 month due to the Israeli siege causing wide malnutrition and severe damage to the medical care in Gaza because of depletion of supplies and lack of medicines.]

I grow up in Israel, in 67 I was 14. I have received hard core Zionist indoctrination, I would like to collaborate Gilad's statement; Israelis are educated in the most appallingly racist way. as a result Israeli pilots can drop 1 ton booms on the most populated area in the world. you have to arrive at a point when you don't regard the people on the ground as fully human to do that. This combination of racism and the monsters unleashing of unopposed force Is the Nazi way.

Gaza et Israël: le droit légitime à la défense et quelques faits importants; Les 7 du Québec on December 30th, 08.(some 7 from quebec-province):
Israël soutient que c’est une attaque en réponse des roquettes que le Hamas lancent, mais il ne faudrait pas oublier que c’est Israël qui a brisé le cessez-le-feu le 5 novembre dernier, tuant six militants palestiniens, alors que l’attention médiatique était tournée vers la victoire présidentielle de Barack Obama, qui lui d’ailleurs, se refuse de commenter les attaques israéliennes - voilà pour le changement. Suite à cela, le Hamas répliqua avec une dizaine de roquettes. Qui peut prétendre recourir à la légitime défense? ......
Israël a tendance à jouer la victime, mais le rapport de force est simplement incomparable. Les roquettes du Hamas ont fait une vingtaine de victimes du côté d’Israël en huit ans, dont une victime seulement depuis la fin officielle du cessez-le-feu le 19 décembre, alors qu’en une journée seulement, Israël a tué plus de 296 personnes. ...
Avant que quiconque se fasse accuser d’antisémitisme en critiquant les politiques et agissements d’Israël (qui contrôle réellement cet État?) - qui ne sont pas endossés par plusieurs juifs d’ailleurs - nous devons retourner à la vraie signification de ce qui est sémite. La plupart des Juifs vivants en Israël sont de descendance Ashkenazi, qui eux, n’ont aucun lien génétique avec les Hébreux bibliques.
Lorsque les sionistes ont mis en marche leur plan pour établir un état par force, dicté par leur enseignement du Talmud, ce qui va à l’encontre de la religion juive venant du Torah, ils ont eu besoin de créer un mythe justifiant l’existence du peuple Juif d’Israël pour prendre une partie du territoire des Palestiniens qui eux, tout comme les juifs arabes, SONT des descendants génétiques des Hébreux bibliques.
Les Israéliens savent cela et ils ont essayé activement d’étouffer les évidences scientifiques pointant dans cette direction. L’ironie étant de voir ces Khazars convertis, qui ne sont pas de descendance sémite, accuser n’importe qui critique les agissements d’Israël d’antisémite. Les sionistes ne sont pas nécessairement juifs, comme le futur vice-président des États-Unis, Joe Biden, le prouve. ...

(..) "At the moment, from the perspective of the last days, we understand this step as a defensive, not offensive, action," Czech EU presidency spokesman Jiri Potuznik said.
Czech Foreign Minister Karel Schwarzenberg is leading an EU delegation to the region Sunday, and Potuznik said the presidency will wait to see the results of that visit.
Comment: Another sickening act of complicity and appeasement to Israels continued slaughter by conscienceless Pathocrats. It is highly unlikely that the EU delegation will be allowed anywhere near the Gaza strip, no doubt they are only stopping over to collect their briefing notes for the next round of media manipulation and historical re-writing.

Live From Gaza comment By: aurora
you can watch live from this video broadcasting from haberturk tv(meaning turkish news)There is an arabic writing on the upper left hand side of the video. It might be arabic al Jezirah (I am not sure)The narrative is in turkish. Israel is striking from the sea and has entered into Gaza from the north and the israeli tanks are bringing down the electric poles and water pipes. An israeli incursion this afternoon has been aborted by Hamas. A turkish doctor in Gaza near the egyptian border says Israel has bombarded that border heavily.
The calculations behind Israel’s slaughter of Palestinians in Gaza:
Uri Avnery explains how Israel engineered the collapse of the truce in the Gaza Strip
in order “to terrorize the civilian population by unremitting attacks from the air, sowing death and destruction”, utterly destroying the entire life-supporting infrastructure in the Strip, creating anarchy and consequently prompting the population to rise up against Hamas.
Uri Avnery is an Israeli journalist, writer and peace activist.
Just after midnight, Al-Jazeera’s Arabic channel was reporting on events in Gaza. Suddenly the camera was pointing upwards towards the dark sky. The screen was pitch black. Nothing could be seen, but there was a sound to be heard: the noise of airplanes, a frightening, a terrifying droning.
It was impossible not to think about the tens of thousands of Gazan children who were hearing that sound at that moment, cringing with fright, paralyzed by fear, waiting for the bombs to fall.
“Israel must defend itself against the rockets that are terrorizing our southern towns,” the Israeli spokesmen explained. “Palestinians must respond to the killing of their fighters inside the Gaza Strip,” the Hamas spokesmen declared.
As a matter of fact, the cease-fire did not collapse, because there was no real cease-fire to start with. The main requirement for any cease-fire in the Gaza Strip must be the opening of the border crossings. There can be no life in Gaza without a steady flow of supplies. But the crossings were not opened, except for a few hours now and again. The blockade on land, on sea and in the air against a million and a half human beings is an act of war, as much as any dropping of bombs or launching of rockets. It paralyzes life in the Gaza Strip: eliminating most sources of employment, pushing hundreds of thousands to the brink of starvation, stopping most hospitals from functioning, disrupting the supply of electricity and water.
Those who decided to close the crossings – under whatever pretext – knew that there is no real cease-fire under these conditions.
That is the main thing. Then there came the small provocations which were designed to get Hamas to react. After several months, in which hardly any Qassam rockets were launched, an army unit was sent into the Strip “in order to destroy a tunnel that came close to the border fence”. From a purely military point of view, it would have made more sense to lay an ambush on our side of the fence. But the aim was to find a pretext for the termination of the cease-fire, in a way that made it plausible to put the blame on the Palestinians. And indeed, after several such small actions, in which Hamas fighters were killed, Hamas retaliated with a massive launch of rockets, and – lo and behold – the cease-fire was at an end. Everybody blamed Hamas.
What was the aim? Tzipi Livni announced it openly: to liquidate Hamas rule in Gaza. The Qassams served only as a pretext.
Liquidate Hamas rule? That sounds like a chapter out of “The March of Folly”. After all, it is no secret that it was the Israeli government which set up Hamas to start with. When I once asked a former Shin-Bet chief, Yaakov Peri, about it, he answered enigmatically: “We did not create it, but we did not hinder its creation.” ...(...)
The official name of the war is “Cast Lead”, two words from a children’s song about a Hanukkah toy.
It would be more accurate to call it “The Election War”.
In the past, too, military action has been taken during election campaigns. Menachem Begin bombed the Iraqi nuclear reactor during the 1981 campaign. When Shimon Peres claimed that this was an election gimmick, Begin cried out at his next rally: “Jews, do you believe that I would send our brave boys to their death or, worse, to be taken prisoner by human animals, in order to win an election?” Begin won.
Peres is no Begin. When, during the 1996 election campaign, he ordered the invasion of Lebanon (operation “Grapes of Wrath”), everybody was convinced that he had done it for electoral gain. The war was a failure and Peres lost the elections and Binyamin Netanyahu came to power.
Barak and Tzipi Livni are now resorting to the same old trick. According to the polls, Barak’s predicted election result rose within 48 hours by five Knesset seats. About 80 dead Palestinians for each seat. But it is difficult to walk on a pile of dead bodies. The success may evaporate in a minute if the war comes to be considered by the Israeli public as a failure. For example, if the rockets continue to hit Beersheba, or if the ground attack leads to heavy Israeli casualties. ...(...)
The main line ...: not to repeat the mistakes of Lebanon War II. This was endlessly repeated on all the news programmes and talk shows.
This does not change the fact: the Gaza war is an almost exact replica of the second Lebanon war.
The strategic concept is the same: to terrorize the civilian population by unremitting attacks from the air, sowing death and destruction. This poses no danger to the pilots, since the Palestinians have no anti-aircraft weapons at all. The calculation: if the entire life-supporting infrastructure in the Strip is utterly destroyed and total anarchy ensues, the population will rise up and overthrow the Hamas regime. Mahmoud Abbas will then ride back into Gaza on the back of Israeli tanks.
In Lebanon, this calculation did not work out. The bombed population, including the Christians, rallied behind Hizbullah, and Hassan Nasrallah became the hero of the Arab world. Something similar will probably happen this time, too. Generals are experts on using weapons and moving troops, not on mass psychology.
Some time ago I wrote that the Gaza blockade was a scientific experiment designed to find out how much one can starve a population and turn its life into hell before they break. This experiment was conducted with the generous help of Europe and the US. Up to now, it did not succeed. Hamas became stronger and the range of the Qassams became longer. The present war is a continuation of the experiment by other means....(..)
Day after day, night after night, Al-Jazeera’s Arabic channel broadcasts the atrocious pictures: heaps of mutilated bodies, tearful relatives looking for their dear ones among the dozens of corpses spread out on the ground, a woman pulling her young daughter from under the rubble, doctors without medicines trying to save the lives of the wounded.
(The English-language Al-Jazeera, unlike its Arabic-language sister-station, has undergone an amazing about face, broadcasting only a sanitized picture and freely distributing Israeli government propaganda.
It would be interesting to know what happened there.) ...(...)
This border remains closed at the height of the horror. The Egyptian army has blocked the only way for food and medicines to enter, while surgeons operate on the wounded without anesthetics.
Throughout the Arab world, from end to end, there echoed the words of Hassan Nasrallah: the leaders of Egypt are accomplices to the crime, they are collaborating with the “Zionist enemy” in trying to break the Palestinian people. It can be assumed that he did not mean only Mubarak, but also all the other leaders, from the king of Saudi Arabia to the Palestinian president. Seeing the demonstrations throughout the Arab world and listening to the slogans, one gets the impression that their leaders seem to many Arabs pathetic at best, and miserable collaborators at worst. ....
This war is a writing on the wall: Israel is missing the historic chance of making peace with secular Arab nationalism. Tomorrow, It may be faced with a uniformly fundamentalist Arab world, Hamas multiplied by a thousand. ...(...)

Comment: The AP photo above shows what appears to be a white phosphorus shell fired into Gaza, as was used by Israel in Lebanon. White phosphorus is an indiscriminate killer that ignites once it is exposed to oxygen, producing such heat that it bursts into a yellow flame and produces a dense white smoke.
It causes painful burn injuries to exposed human flesh, as discovered by Lebanon's Children at the hands of Israeli Phosphorus Bombs in 2006.
White Phosphorus is considered a chemical weapon by most governments around the world. Its use in civilian areas is banned by the Geneva Treaty of 1980. The United Nations considers such weapons illegal.

The Zionist war criminals evidently have You Tube on board.
Please inform as many people as possible .. copy and send links.
It is also available here in original and at Kenny's Sideshow ...(...)....
UPDATE 4th Jan 1330 GMT The Jerusalem Post reported on Jan 1st that IAF jets on Thursday evening bombed the home of Nabil Amrin, a senior terrorist and the commander of a Hamas battalion. Some commentators say the above video relates to this specific attack.
They further add that: A series of secondary explosions detected following the air strike confirmed that Amrin's house in the Sheikh Raduan neighborhood of Gaza City contained a large weapon and ammunition cash.
It is yet unclear if Amrin was killed in the attack.
(The IDF Spokesperson propaganda unit make no mention at all of this raid)
We took this video (and article) from Haitham Sabbah in good faith ( http://sabbah.biz/mt/ ) and without further checking, since we considered him a trusted source. Since, several readers have written or posted comments saying that the video is related to another incident, an explosion which occurred in 2005.
We asked Haitham to verify that the video is really from a bombing of a market by the IDF of yesterday, and I just spoke to somebody in Gaza by phone. Haitham could not verify his source, and the person in Gaza could not definitely confirm that such an incident happened yesterday.
We sincerely regret to have posted been this without better verification, we apologize for the commotion which we caused, and for disappointing our readers.
The original article - less video link - and comments stay posted below the line for future reference.
Norwegian medics told Press TV correspondent Akram al-Sattari that some of the victims who have been wounded since Israel began its attacks on the Gaza Strip on December 27 have traces of depleted uranium in their bodies. .... Israeli Defense Minister Ehud Barak warned on Sunday that the wide-ranging ground offensive in the Gaza Strip would be "full of surprises."
(...) The latest assaults bring the number of Palestinians killed to over 488 with 2790 others wounded. The UN says that about 25 percent of the casualties were civilian deaths - including at least 34 children.
According to Israeli army officials, at least 30 of its soldiers have been wounded since the start of the ground campaign.
Amid global condemnation of the ongoing violence in the region, the UN Security Council failed to agree on a united approach to resolve the crisis.
" Once again, the world is watching in dismay the dysfunctionality of the Security Council," UN General Assembly chief Miguel d'Escoto said Sunday. ...(...)

Israeli troops fought heavy battles with Hamas fighters in two densely populated Gaza towns today as the Army sought to split the strip into three sections to cut off the Islamist group's supply lines.
Thirty Israeli troops were injured, two seriously, and 19 Palestinian fighters were killed, the military said. Hamas said that it had captured two soldiers, but the Israeli Defence Force would not confirm the claim, adding that it could be a propaganda ploy.
The Israeli strategy of splitting Gaza into north, central and southern sections mirrors a similar tactic employed when settlers used to come under attack in the strip. ..(...)
California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger expressed support for the ground operation in Gaza.
Israel's ground offensive in Gaza was a "monstrosity" and a marked failure for the United Nations, the president of the UN General Assembly said.
In an extraordinary outburst, Miguel D'escoto Brockmann, of Nicaragua, blasted the Israeli action as the Security Council convened its third emergency session on the crisis in Gaza.
"I think it's a monstrosity; there's no other way to name it," Mr Brockmann said yesterday.
"Once again, the world is watching in dismay the dysfunctionality of the Security Council."
Eva Bartlett writing from the occupied Gaza Strip, Live from Palestine, 3 January 2009
(A flyer dropped on the Gaza Strip reads: "People of the Strip/ Hamas will lead you to destruction/ The streets of Gaza December 2008." + picture )
In the haze of dust and smoke from the latest F-16 strike, a family self-evacuates. The dispatcher at the Jabaliya Palestine Red Crescent Society (PRCS) receives call after call from terrified residents fleeing their homes.
It's a new year, a new Nakba, and an old scene; Israel is bombarding Gaza once again and the world is standing idly by, sitting on a fence very different from the electrified border fence encaging Gaza, or the separation wall dividing and ghettoizing the West Bank. The world sits on the fence, justifying Israel's massacre of a civilian population already dying from the siege.
We are four ambulances out tonight, versus two last night. The ambulances weave nimbly along blacked-out streets of a manufactured ghost town -- like the streets all over Gaza -- dodging fresh piles of rubble,
It's absolutely impossible, unbelievable, it's a massacre. "They know no limits now," the medics report. "They are going crazy."
We pass shells of houses, mosques, schools and shops, and see streams of panicked residents fleeing for their lives. Many more began to flee this morning after yet another night of bombardment on and around their houses. I saw the remains of rubble.
This morning when Israel dropped the flyers announcing their intention to bomb the northern regions in collective punishment, residents believed it. The lights in Jabaliya's PRCS stations are out, the power has just cut. In the dark, and cold, the sounds of explosions outside are more pronounced.
Acrid smoke from the shelling poisons the air. The feeling of being utterly surrounded by war planes, tanks, bulldozers and warships increases as news comes of the latest attack around Gaza: an orphanage in Gaza City, near the Palestine Mosque, with whispers that the holy place is next, marking at least 10 mosques destroyed. The number of dead and injured from the attack on the Ibrahim al-Makadma Mosque today is 11 and 50 respectively, and rising.
The calls for help from the northwest region, and from 500 kilometers east of this ambulance station, must go unanswered. The medics must coordinate with Israel via the ICRC. A bitter irony; the occupier denies permission to leave, the occupier invades, the invader kills and injures, and -- beyond belief -- holds the power to grant permission to retrieve those that the invader has injured or killed.
My article ends in continued disbelief -- to the thuds of explosions and Apache blades; to the staccato of firing into the night; and to blasts hitting unknown targets with an unknown end.

Comment: Peace won't be allowed to exist as long as psychopaths have access to positions of power and weapons, period! Hoping for peace, wishing it, talking about it, won't make it magically manifest, as thousands of years of horrific history on this planet have shown. Knowledge is our only chance, the knowledge that remained hidden for millennia from human beings, about the destructive predatorial sub-species who also inhabits our planet.
No human being (or groups of such) with conscience would commit the murders of innocents so sadistically, as the Israeli government does in Gaza.
Hassane Zerouky Global Research Tue, 23 Mar 2004
Thanks to the Mossad, Israel's "Institute for Intelligence and Special Tasks", the Hamas was allowed to reinforce its presence in the occupied territories. Meanwhile, Arafat's Fatah Movement for National Liberation as well as the Palestinian Left were subjected to the most brutal form of repression and intimidation
Let us not forget that it was Israel, which in fact created Hamas. According to Zeev Sternell, historian at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, "Israel thought that it was a smart ploy to push the Islamists against the Palestinian Liberation Organisation (PLO)".
Stephen Zunes AlterNet Sat, 03 Jan 2009
Editor's note: In the U.S., the claim that the actions of Hamas forced Israel to launch a massive assault on the impoverished population of Gaza is almost universally accepted. But, as scholar Stephen Zunes explains below, the picture of Hamas as an organization of wide-eyed radicalism without electoral legitimacy or the support of a significant portion of the Palestinian population is simplistic. In this important piece, Zunes examines the ways in which Israeli and American policy-makers encouraged the rise of the conservative religious group Hamas in an effort to marginalize secular and leftist elements within the Occupied Territories.///
The United States bears much of the blame for the ongoing bloodshed in the Gaza Strip and nearby parts of Israel. Indeed, were it not for misguided Israeli and American policies, Hamas would not be in control of the territory in the first place.(..The Bush administration and leaders of both parties in Congress have defended Israeli policies on the grounds that the extremist Hamas governs the territory. Yet no one seems willing to acknowledge the role the United States had in making it possible for Hamas to come to power in Gaza in the first place. ...)
Israel initially encouraged the rise of the Palestinian Islamist movement as a counter to the Palestine Liberation Organization, the secular coalition composed of Fatah and various leftist and other nationalist movements. Beginning in the early 1980s, with generous funding from the U.S.-backed family dictatorship in Saudi Arabia, the antecedents of Hamas began to emerge through the establishment of schools, health care clinics, social service organizations and other entities that stressed an ultraconservative interpretation of Islam, which up to that point had not been very common among the Palestinian population. The hope was that if people spent more time praying in mosques, they would be less prone to enlist in left-wing nationalist movements challenging the Israeli occupation.
While supporters of the secular PLO were denied their own media or right to hold political gatherings, the Israeli occupation authorities allowed radical Islamic groups to hold rallies, publish uncensored newspapers and even have their own radio station. For example, in the occupied Palestinian city of Gaza in 1981, Israeli soldiers -- who had shown no hesitation in brutally suppressing peaceful pro-PLO demonstrations -- stood by when a group of Islamic extremists attacked and burned a PLO-affiliated health clinic in Gaza for offering family-planning services for women.
Hamas, an acronym for Harakat al-Muqawama al-Islamiyya (Islamic Resistance Movement), was founded in 1987 by Sheik Ahmed Yassin, who had been freed from prison when Israel conquered the Gaza Strip 20 years earlier. Israel's priorities in suppressing Palestinian dissent during this period were revealing: In 1988, Israel forcibly exiled Palestinian activist Mubarak Awad, a Christian pacifist who advocated the use of Gandhian-style resistance to the Israeli occupation and Israeli-Palestinian peace, while allowing Yassin to circulate anti-Jewish hate literature and publicly call for the destruction of Israel by force of arms. ...(...)
In reality, however, the Gaza Strip has remained effectively under siege. Even prior to the Hamas victory in the Palestinian parliamentary elections in 2006, the Israeli government not only severely restricted -- as is its right -- entry from the Gaza Strip into Israel, but also controlled passage through the border crossing between the Gaza Strip and Egypt, as well. Israel also refused to allow the Palestinians to open their airport or seaport. This not only led to periodic shortages of basic necessities imported through Egypt,
but resulted in the widespread wasting of perishable exports -- such as fruits, vegetables and cut flowers -- vital to the territory's economy. Furthermore, Gaza residents were cut off from family members and compatriots in the West Bank and elsewhere in what many have referred to as the world's largest open-air prison.
In retaliation, Hamas and allied militias began launching rocket attacks into civilian areas of Israel. Israel responded by bombing, shelling and periodic incursions in civilian areas in the Gaza Strip, which, by the time of the 2006 cease-fire, had killed over 200 civilians, including scores of children. Bush administration officials, echoed by congressional leaders of both parties, justifiably condemned the rocket attacks by Hamas-allied units into civilian areas of Israel
(which at that time had resulted in scores of injuries but only one death), but defended Israel's far more devastating attacks against civilian targets in the Gaza Strip. This created a reaction that strengthened Hamas' support in the territory even more.
The Gaza Strip's population consists primarily of refugees from Israel's ethnic cleansing of most of Palestine almost 60 years ago and their descendents, most of whom have had no gainful employment since Israel sealed the border from most day laborers in the late 1980s. Crowded into only 140 square miles and subjected to extreme violence and poverty, it is not surprising that many would become susceptible to extremist politics, such as those of the Islamist Hamas movement. ...

A Palestinian protester has been killed in the West Bank during a demonstration against the Israeli offensive on the Gaza Strip.
Mufid al-Walwil, 21, was shot dead when Israeli troops opened fire on a group of demonstrators near the separation barrier in Qalqilya,AFP reported Sunday.
An Israeli army spokeswoman confirmed the incident, claiming that soldiers had opened fire after the Palestinians threw stones and "two flaming tires" at the troops during what he called a "violent riot."
The Israeli "Operation Cast Lead" which was kicked off on December 27 against the Gaza Strip, has been escalated into a ground incursion after a week-long aerial attacks on the region.
JERUSALEM, Jan 4 (Reuters) - Israeli soldiers shot and killed a Palestinian man during clashes in the occupied West Bank on Sunday, Palestinian medical sources said.
Mufid Saleh Walweel, 22, was shot in the head in the West Bank city of Qalqilya during a protest against Israel's military operation in the Gaza Strip, they said.
The Israeli army said it was checking the report.

Just after midnight Al-Jazeera's Arabic channel was reporting on events in Gaza. Suddenly the camera was pointing upwards towards the dark sky. The screen was pitch black. Nothing could be seen, but there was a sound to be heard: the noise of airplanes, a frightening, a terrifying droning.
It was impossible not to think about the tens of thousands of Gazan children who were hearing that sound at that moment, cringing with fright, paralyzed by fear, waiting for the bombs to fall.
"Israel must defend itself against the rockets that are terrorizing our Southern towns," the Israeli spokesmen explained. "Palestinians must respond to the killing of their fighters inside the Gaza Strip," the Hamas spokesmen declared....(...)
This war is a writing on the wall: Israel is missing the historic chance of making peace with secular Arab nationalism. Tomorrow, It may be faced with a uniformly fundamentalist Arab world, Hamas multiplied by a thousand.

1))UK Media Gagged Over Contents of Bombing Memo Targeting Al Jazeera.
Linda S. Heard CounterPunch Thu, 24 Nov 2005
Comment: It is easy to believe this story. It is completely within the psychopathic character of the American president to want to wipe Al Jareeza off the face of the map. The previous attacks on Al Jazeera offices certainly lend credenace to this story.
In a world of lies within lies, however, it is worth it to take some time and try and see through the story. It is possible that the memo is not true, but that it is being circulated for other purposes. What might those be?
We know that Al Jazeera is in Qatar, a country closely allied to the US. Al Jazeera is also often the source of the famous Osama tapes, the ones that promote the image of Al Qaeda as a ferocious and dangerous threat to the West. Well, we know that it is not the case that Al Qaeda is such a danger. The danger is the US and Israel. To the extent that Al Jazeera is fanning the flames of the neocon clash of civilizations, it is part of the problem.
This is not to say that there is no good journalism coming out of the channel. Good disinformation mixes the good with the bad, good journalism with propaganda. It is the good stuff that legitimises the bad stuff, allows it to slip through one's critical radar.
We do not know one way or another. It would be interesting to do a content analysis of Al Jazeera reporting on Osama and Al Qaeda and al Zarqawi and Iraq and see to what extent they put into question the myths promoted in the West about these two arch-villains. The devil is in the details, and it is the details that will help us understand what is info and what is disinfo in the war that is being waged for the hearts and minds of people the world over.

Gaza- Ma'an - Norwegian doctor Mas Gilbert, currently in Gaza assisting the beleaguered medical staff, called Israeli Minister of Foreign Affairs Tzipi Livni's statements alleging that the Israeli army is not targeting civilians "lies" and urged her to visit the Gaza Strip and see the real victims of the attacks.
Gilbert works in the Ash-Shifa hospital in Gaza City and wondered "how she could say such things. "I am calling her to visit Gaza to see what I am seeing," he said.
The Dr described what is going on in Gaza as catastrophic. What needs to happen, he said, is that Israel needs to stop shelling and to protect Gazan civilians by providing humanitarian aid like food and fuel and medical supplies.
Gilbert arrived in Gaza with a second Norwegian doctor, Enrich Foucee, via the Rafah crossing on the third day of the Israeli airstrikes. They were the only two foreign physicians allowed into the area, and were sent with The Norwegian Aid Committee (NORWAC),
while doctors from Qatar, Jordan and Saudi Arabia were turned away.
Speaking about the conditions in the hospitals he said that any medical facility in Paris or New York would close down if faced with circumstances like those in the Gaza centers. I don’t know how many of the doctors can stand loosing so many people as Israel continues to shell the area.

Joseph Wakim The Australian
I was unfortunate enough to have witnessed the Israeli aerial bombardment in Lebanon when my family was visiting relatives in July 2006. But I was fortunate enough to survive and tell the story.
Ironically, the surgical precision of the warplanes missed the targeted hilltop antenna. Indeed, we felt like trapped ants, darting about in a frenzy as we were being sprayed by a monstrous aerosol can that was wreaking terror from above.
Regardless of whether the victims are Christian or Muslim, Jewish or gentile, no human being should ever be reduced to this.
To this day my children remain phobic about thunder, but our ordeal pales into insignificance when compared with the terror unleashed against the Gazans...(...)
... Joseph Wakim is founder of Australian Arabic Council. ...
My grandfather moved to Gaza five years ago after living all over the Middle East for almost fifty years. As far as he was concerned, it was always a matter of time before he'd find his way back to his birthplace. He was born in Gaza City in 1933. Both of his parents died of cancer by his fifth birthday, so he was raised by four older sisters. The Gaza he knew during his childhood was transformed by the establishment of Israel in 1948. Following their forced expulsion from villages and cities across the country, hundreds of thousands of Palestinians streamed into the tiny coastal strip. Most of the refugees relied on assistance from the newly-created United Nations Relief and Works Agency to survive, and jobs were hard to come by. My grandfather was thus forced to move to other Arab countries so he could provide for his young family. By 1958, he had married my grandmother, a refugee from Jaffa whose father, a policeman, had been killed by Zionist paramilitaries ten years earlier. My grandfather took her and their one-year-old son to Saudi Arabia, where he taught Arabic to schoolchildren.
Leaving his beloved Gaza was painful for my grandfather, but he was left with no other choice. Because he was never allowed to become a citizen of any of the four Arab countries in which he worked and lived, my grandfather never felt at home.
In his mind, they were transitory stops, temporary resting places on the way to Return. He would save as much as he could from his meager salary so he'd have enough money to take his family to Gaza for summer visits. After years of living modestly, he was able to buy a quarter of an acre of land on Gaza's coast near the Mediterranean Sea.
My grandfather was sitting in a cafe with a group of friends in the coastal city of Jeddah in Saudi Arabia when he heard that Israel captured Gaza in the June 1967 war. His face went pale and he fainted from the shock. The Israeli Army's occupation meant Gaza was lost. But in practical terms the news had another catastrophic effect: the Israeli military authorities decreed that any Palestinian who was not in Gaza before the war was not recognized as a resident of the strip.
My grandfather became a U.S. citizen in 1999. By the time he passed his citizenship exam, his knowledge of American history and governance rivaled my own. Three of his children had moved here years earlier, and started their own families. Though my mother begged him to live here with her, my grandfather's dream of returning to Gaza never left him -- and it was his American citizenship that helped him do just that. ....

January 3, 2009 The Invisible Injuries of the Invisible Ranks.
I never expected it to be so damn windy in Texas. I expected it to be still, dry and hot - something like Arizona, maybe. Of course, nothing is really what I expected it to be when I married Caynan.
((Carissa S. Picard stands at the entrance to Fort Hood, Texas. Picard is the founder and president of Military Spouses for Change. (Photo: Erich Schlegel / Dallas Morning News) ))
(..) Caynan's call came a few weeks after he left us and two days after he started flying real medevac missions in Iraq. Unfortunately for him, even when combat missions settled down for our troops as we were handing security for large areas of the country over to the Iraqis, our medevac helicopters still go in and pick up injured Iraqis as well as wounded Americans; i.e., there is little reprieve from the carnage.
The first soldier to die in Caynan's Blackhawk did so with his legs lying on his chest, having been completely blown off by an IED blast to the Bradley he was driving.
Caynan, in broken sentences, tries his best to tell about "the look, baby, the look when the spirit leaves the body, the body changes, the eyes are different, everything is different, you know before the machines know, he's dead, he's just dead." But that wasn't the worst of that mission. When they landed at the Baghdad CSH and unloaded this dead soldier, the aircraft's rotor wash blew one of his disembodied legs off his chest. A crew chief had to chase the leg as it rolled across the dusty landing zone to return it to this 26-year-old soldier who would never use it again.
"It's so surreal. You're watching this happening but it's like a movie ... It just doesn't seem real. How is this happening? How am I sitting in this helicopter watching this dead man's leg roll across the tarmac like this? It just doesn't seem real baby. This can't be real ..."
Silently I listened. Silently I cried. Because it was real and we both knew it.
The next call came at 4 AM. Caynan sounded like he might actually have been crying. In bits and pieces I got the story, but mainly he repeated, "The screaming, my God, the screaming."
Apparently, two men were picked up. A US soldier and an Iraqi interpreter were hit by an IED. While they made it to the CSH alive, there was an "ungodly amount" of blood. Caynan "never knew blood could smell like that." But it wasn't the blood that disturbed Caynan; it was the screaming. He said he couldn't get the interpreter's screaming out of his head.
"I've never heard anything like that before, Carissa. I can't his screams out of my head."
I had nothing to say. All I could do was remind him that he got them to the CSH alive. But getting them to the CSH alive doesn't erase those screams and I know that. And I worry about him. I wonder how long those screams will haunt him. ...(...)
We are only a third of the way through my husband's deployment and I can already identify our wounded. Am I the only one paying attention?
If this country wants to maintain an all-volunteer force, then the Department of Defense and Congress need to start recognizing the service of military families in actions and not just words. An investment in the family IS an investment in the service member. Fortify and strengthen the family and you fortify and strengthen your forces.
Taking care of military families is not just a moral imperative - it is a troop multiplier.
January 3, 2009 J.p. Morgan Chase Buyout of Bear Stearns – a Trillionaires Delight.
March 20, 2008 - Somewhere in the trillionaires room of Heaven three old codgers are sitting around a table smoking cigars and chuckling over the J. P Morgan Chase & Company buyout of Bear Stearns for a paltry $2.00 a share. Not so much because the price had been over $130 a share a few weeks earlier but because the Federal Reserve Board put up $30 billion of the government's money to guarantee the sale.
Yes, Mayer Amschel Rothschild, J. P. Morgan and John D. Rockefeller, patriarchs of three of the most powerful family fortunes in history have waited nearly two centuries to see their dreams fulfilled. Perhaps such patience is why their families have remained successful by steadfastly maintaining the rules of the game as set down by their founders.
It was 248 years ago, in 1760 that Mayer Amschel Rothschild created the House of Rothschild that was to pave the way for international banking and control of the world's resources on a scale unparalleled and somewhat mysterious to this date. He disbursed his five sons to set up banking operations throughout Europe and the various European empires.
"Give me control of a nation's money and I care not who makes the laws." Mayer Amschel Rothschild.
In time the House of Rothschild was able to take control of the Bank of France and Bank of England and relentlessly pursued an effort over two centuries to control a national bank in the USA. By 1850 it was said the Rothschild family was worth over $6 billion and owned one half of the world's wealth.
From oil (Shell) to diamonds (DeBeers) to gold (from 1919 until 2004 a Rothschild was permanent Chairman of the London Gold Fixing committee which met twice a day in the Rothschild offices in London) the Rothschild's quietly accumulated a foothold in critical industries and commodities throughout the world.
A master at building impenetrable walls around his family assets the current value of the Rothschild holdings are estimated to be between $100 and $300 trillion, yes that is trillion dollars! Now for a point of reference the current United States National Debt is $9.4 trillion.
Years later John F. Kennedy opposed a private national bank and was assassinated in 1963 and Ronald Reagan opposed a private national bank and in 1981 an attempt was made to assassinate him. Coincidence or not the opposition to a privately owned national bank was a common characteristic to all these successful assassinations and assassination attempts.
Which brings us full circle to the present bailout of Bear Stearns by J.P. Morgan Chase & Company and we find the Rothschild, Morgan and Rockefeller families are all conveniently part of the same group benefiting from the bailout and the $30 billion guarantee by the Federal Reserve. This is the third time the J. P. Morgan Company has come to the rescue of the American banking system and economy.
January 3, 2009 3:36 PM Final Update:
This Article: Obama's Kenyan Birth Evidence To Be Revealed (with video).
Update 1/1/2009, 3:36am CT - In his 7:45pm Plains Radio broadcast, this last night, Ed Hale backed down from his prior assertion of having gained even uncertain information about the Barack Sr. / Stanley Ann divorce decree containing language referring to Barack Jr. as being born in Kenya. Instead, Hale referred to an apparently tricky recollection... of an indeterminate person... referring to such a document's generally referring to the place of birth of the children of the divorced parents. That is not what I heard from Mr. Hale on the 31st.
Two people reported during the broadcast that they had contacted Hale's private investigator yesterday, who indicated he did not thoroughly read the documentation and does not know how it addresses Barack Obama Jr. -- nor did he make a copy for himself. It would appear that Hale will receive a valid copy of this decree, probably Friday, 1/2. What it states will be what it states. He promises to post and report, as described below.
(...) For example, documentation from Obama's mother, Stanley Ann's divorce to her second husband, Lolo Soetoro had vanished. Hale speculates, the reason this forthcoming 1964 divorce decree had not also been "scrubbed" could be that the divorce had been filed not by Obama's mother, but by Barack H. Obama, Sr. Thus, it may have been overlooked by any plumbers for Obama.
Hale does admit to incomplete certainty of his investigator's work until he receives it, partially due to the PI's accent, the telephone connection, and his slight hearing impediment. However, he is very confident of what he will receive during the day. Mark S. McGrew, who writes about Obama's natural born Citizen problems for Pravda.ru, accompanied Hale in his broadcast and also expressed confidence. McGrew had sought publication in numerous American news outlets, but they turned down his articles referring to Obama's apparent ineligibility. Russia's Pravda however, decided his effort to find and report the truth was not to be redlined.
As often related, Barack Obama, due simply to his U.K. citizenship at birth via his Kenyan father, is not a natural born Citizen of America, by definition and the original intent for that term in the Constitution. The Supreme Court has turned down cases which make this point, but according to a September decision in a lower federal court (regarding John McCain's eligibility problem) this would be due to a question of jurisdiction, until Congress is to certify the Electoral College vote on January 8. Further action is to occur, after this date. You may read about this in previous I.O. articles and the sites linked in its sidebar.
Meanwhile, on the question of Obama's place of birth, professionals dealing with documents and forensic evidence have testified that the online "certificate of live birth" provided by Obama is not identifiable evidence of American birth. Now, if Obama's parents' divorce decree states that he was born in Kenya (as his Kenyan grandmother has repeatedly stated) the second epistemological wheel is coming off his vehicle to the White House.
Will Congress pay attention and do its Constitutional duty?
